Election 2020 and RIP Rush

Election news is relatively light, it seems the death of Rush Limbaugh has taken the wind out of conservative sails for a bit. So, before going on, a word about Rush. I was not a fan of Rush, but then, I was not not a fan either, IYKWIMAITTYD.  My conversion from a snot-nosed liberal kid to a snot-nosed conservative adult came well before Rush became the voice of conservatism. I was never one to listen to talk radio regardless of who was speaking; I'd much rather listen to music. However, my dad, a musician, who paved the way to my conversion to conservatism with his eternal subscription to National Review, did listen to Rush when driving distances in the car. My kids still resent it. There's no doubt of Rush's importance to the conservative movement; it just wasn't a significant part of my personal journey.

Now, onto the election noise. Stu Cvrk at Red State thinks Mitch Miscalculated Bigly in his attack on Trump. I think so, too, but in the long run, I don't think it's that important. Outside the beltway and whatever the hell state he's from, Mitch is of little consequence to Republican voters. His words will not detract significantly from the pull of Trumpism on the voters. Andrew Trunsky at Da Caller, Trump Remains The Overwhelming GOP Favorite For 2024, Poll Shows. I think that stays true unless Trump elevates a candidate. Bronson Stocking at Town Hall, Here's What Trump Said When Asked If He's Running for President

"Well, we have tremendous support. I won't say yet, but we have tremendous support. And I'm looking at poll numbers and they're through the roof," said Trump.

Trump said his poll numbers have improved following his latest impeachment.

"I'm the only guy who gets impeached and my numbers go up," Trump joked.
IIRC, Bill Clinton's went up too. If you strike at the King. . . Fox, Trump, ex-campaign manager Brad Parscale, meet at Mar-a-Lago. Hmm. 

The CIA mole at WaPoo, David Ignatius says  Only the truth will keep Trump away. He and the WaPoo wouldn't know the truth if it bit them. And Steve Israel on Da Hill plots to find How Democrats can ensure Trump never runs again. What are they afraid of? At Just Facts Daily, Jim Agresti details The New York Times’ Brazenly False “Fact Check” About Trump’s Impeachment Trial. It's what they are, it's what they do.

Althouse considers the case of  "A left-wing activist facing criminal charges for his involvement in the Capitol riots received $35,000 from both CNN and NBC for footage he recorded of a Trump supporter being fatally shot...". As usual, much of the fun is in the comments. Ace, Revealed: Both CNN and MSNBC Paid the Antifa Leader $35,000 for His Video of the Riots He Encouraged and Took Part In
"Burn this mother down," he encouraged his fellow rioters, and then talked a cop into letting them into the Capitol. Which is supposedly the greatest crime of the past two centuries. Worse than the Holocaust, really.

He was a professional coaching raw amateurs about how to riot. He was an architect of "the terror" Jake Tapper and the slightly-less-partisan AOC say happened that day.

And CNN, and MSNBC, paid him a lot of money for that terror. They are terror-financiers.

Maybe some drone strikes are needed?

Julio Rosas at Town Hall is incensed that Scarborough Says You Can't Compare BLM and Capitol Riots: Taco Stands Not as Important as Capitol. Why must we protect the elite if they won't protect us?

CNN claims Federal prosecutors investigated Proud Boys ties to Roger Stone in 2019 case. But couldn't find anything. By the way, that's not how this is supposed to work. They're supposed to have evidence for a crime before they start snooping.

Horse, barn door, RNC to create election integrity committee (Wa Ex).

So, does this mean I have to give up this thread of titles? Insty, IT ISN’T WHAT YOU THINK:

Donald Trump’s official app has been suspended from the Google Play Store. “Google has just taken down the Official Trump 2020 App from the Play Store. The company has since explained to us that the app ceased functioning correctly, and, after multiple attempts to contact the developer regarding these problems, Google elected to follow its policy to remove non-functional apps from the Play Store. Android Police can confirm that prior to the takedown, the app hung and could not load content, reporting connectivity issues”

It makes sense that the Trump 2020 app wasn’t being tended to. The question is whether there will be a Trump 2024 app.
