DEMs know they are in a hurt locker for the upcoming election. You can tell by not only their words but their actions. They see the handwriting on the wall, Nov is going to be a DEM bloodbath.

Joe Rogan spoke about this recently on one of his podcasts:

Flags: I hope you are right. I think Trump's re-election is highly certain, but external events can impact that. What I hope is that Republicans win back the House and extend their majority in the Senate. It is this later part I am uncertain about. Logically it seems to me that the shenanigans the Democrats have engaged in -- in both the House and the Senate -- has earned them a severe spanking in the November elections, but things don't always turn out that way. I think the Republican candidates (1) express solid support for Trump, (2) decry the obstruction and false attacks of all the Democrats (don't forget -- I haven't -- every Democrat Senator voted for both articles of impeachment, or very close), and (3) draw a clear distinction between Democrat national policy and Republican policy on (A) borders, (B) globalism and international trade, and (C) socialist agendas.

I often engage in dreaming with little prompting from actual events observed in the world. Here is one of my dreams. It is probably thought by Democrats and the news media that the only thing Donald Trump is doing now is managing the coronavirus crisis. While there are no facts or stories I can point to, it seems to me it is very likely Trump is also engaged in handling other presidential duties and advancing other presidential initiatives. After all, the coronavirus task force, officially, is delegated to Mike Pence. What if Trump is moving ahead with other initiatives while the press and Democrats are totally absorbed in the coronavirus issue. What if Trump is moving forwards on some foreign policy initiatives that go unnoticed by the press and Democrats? What if come election time Trump has some new foreign policy achievement feather he can stick into his hat and carry into the presidential debates? There is no evidence of this, but couldn't that happen? Wouldn't this be a good time to do that, make some different foreign policy arrangements?

What if Trump were to draw down US soldiers in the middle east? Iraq has complained that they don't want us there, what if we did as they asked? Saudi Arabia is opening the oil spigot wide open. What if we tell them "Hey, dudes, you're on your own." The guy in the Philippines has complained about and threatened US soldiers. What if we were to move those folks out. I'm not sure all of these are good moves, but some of them could be. Certainly our interests in the middle east are changed now that we are energy independent. What if Trump realigned our NATO stance further. He has already made public statements about things. Maybe he could just quietly follow through on some of his "thinking out loud" statements.

I have no support for these musings. I'm just wondering if that might be something Trump could be doing with his right hand while the media and Democrats are only looking at his left hand.

My concern is there it lots of time for some type of counter attack. Since Trumps ratings are high and he's doing good with the Virus mess, and his daily press conferences continue to get better. What's the next plan? The D's can't it continue like this, or they can write off 2020

Maybe they have used up all their ammo?

You have to wonder at this point who WANTS to run against Trump? Often losing a presidential campaign marks the end of a political career. With prospects so strong for Trump, who wants to be the loser who "fights the good fight" but is assured of getting his political career head handed to him? Why didn't John Kerry jump into the fray? Look at who got into this? Losers all. Where are the mature, high echelon Democrats who might actually look presidential on a stage?

By the way. Everyone is touting Andrew Cuomo as the white knight who is going to step in and pommel Trump. Read my comments above. If Cuomo has serious presidential ambitions, is this the contest to stake his career on? He seems a reasonably young man to me, just looking at him. Wouldn't he be shrewder to bide his time and give it a go in a future election cycle?

One other point about Cuomo. If he were to become the Democrat presidential candidate, there would be a lot of investigation of his background. No, you ninny! Not by the sycophantic media! By the Trump campaign. And I sort of guess Trump probably knows Cuomo pretty well already. If Cuomo has any skeletons in his closet, they would get out there in a national campaign. Any womanizing would get out there. Any sexual harassment would get out there. Any graft would be at risk of being exposed. He may be clean as a whistle -- I'm not saying otherwise. I'm just saying such considerations might make him less than an ideal candidate, even though we don't ourselves know this.
