The Final 2020 Pitch

Trump and Biden make their case to the American voters, and it’s a clear choice.

The only poll that matters is the one on Election Day. That’s the tried-and-true saying around our humble shop, though with the caveat this year that, with more than 93 million early votes already cast, it’s more like election season. Nevertheless, the mainstream media is invested in poll-driven “news” — what we call “pollaganda” — which is one of the primary problems with media coverage these days. Tell people what to think, ask them if they understand what you told them, and report their responses as news. Lather, rinse, repeat.

The real news is what the candidates are doing to make their case in the final days and hours before the election.

It’s no surprise that Donald Trump and Joe Biden both focused on key battleground states in the final four days. Biden held small rallies in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, which is in jeopardy after his fracking flop in the final debate. Trump either held or will hold rallies in Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Carolina. Trump is vastly outpacing Biden in travel days, states visited, and the number of rallies held — not to mention the crowd size and enthusiasm at those rallies. How much that’s a forecast for the results Tuesday remains to be seen.

With all that said, here’s the bottom line on each candidate.


Let’s start with Biden. He’s running as a man of steady character against a low-brow bully. The truth is, however, Biden’s utter lack of character is arguably the most unreported story of 2020, and it’s fooling even too many evangelical voters. We’re not just talking about the revelations from Hunter Biden’s laptop that the Biden family is thoroughly corrupt and in the pocket of our Chinese foes. Revelations the Leftmedia dutifully covered up, by the way. We’re also talking about Biden’s penchant for lying, whether with tall tales about his autobiography, BIG lie campaign ads, or deceptive dishonesty about his policies, which will be those of the radical left wing of his party. Well, except for his supposed COVID rescue, which he plagiarized from Trump while pummeling the president with falsehoods about his record.

Trump isn’t the most honest guy, of course, but that’s largely because of hyperbole and boasting, not deception as with Biden. One type of dishonesty is far worse than the other.

Platform is key, and while Biden and the media love to portray him as the “moderate” and “safe” choice, his agenda is that of the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democrat Party — it’s right there on his own website. That agenda will be implemented by his running mate and the Senate’s most left-wing member, Kamala Harris, who most people expect will be president within Biden’s first term if he wins. Biden is and has always been the consummate party man, so even if he somehow sticks around for four years, the movers and shakers of the party are the radical leftists, and he’ll follow right along with them.

Biden may claim to be the one to bring the country together, but surrendering to the BLM/antifa mob while ushering in the socialist polices of Sanders isn’t going to do that. No wonder he’s always so vague about what he’ll do; being honest and candid would lead to a landslide loss.

With President Trump, on the other hand, what you see is what you get. It’s true that he is often his own worst enemy and that he bears responsibility for much of the rancor in American politics today. But — and it’s a “yuge” but — what he’s really done is drop a proverbial bomb in the swamp, disrupting the establishment and it’s anti-grassroots agenda. He’s “torn the mask off the liberal media,” exposing its bias and hatred for all things fundamentally American in a way that no other Republican could. While regurgitating fake news about Russian collusion and repeatedly falsely framing Trump’s own words and policies, the media repeats lies about “peaceful protests” by Democrat constituents and has shown a disgusting lack of interest — even extending to censorship — in vetting Biden’s corruption.

The corrupt alliance of the Democrat Party and the Leftmedia is the biggest threat to Liberty we face today. Trump will fight it. A Biden victory will legitimize it.

We haven’t even gotten to Trump’s record, which most certainly recommends him for a second term. From filling the judiciary with constitutionalists to reducing taxes and regulations to restoring American credibility in foreign policy (the Middle East, China, NATO, etc.), Trump’s record is outstanding.

And it’s all the more remarkable because he’s done it all while fighting Democrats, some members of his own party, and the deep-state government apparatus that was arrayed against him from his 2016 nomination all the way through his impeachment (for what Joe Biden did) earlier this year.

To sum it up, we’ll leave you with excerpts from Trump’s own words on the distinction between his vision for America and that of Biden:

Biden is the candidate of rioters, looters, arsonists, gun-grabbers, flag-burners, Marxists, lobbyists, and special interests. I am the candidate of farmers, factory workers, police officers, and hard-working, law-abiding patriots of every race, religion and creed!

Biden will terminate school choice, eliminate charter schools, defund religious schools, ban prayer in public schools, indoctrinate your children with anti-American lies, and force you to subsidize extreme late-term abortion. We believe that every child is a sacred gift from God!

For decades, Joe Biden let other countries rip you off and cheat America blind! The only people who’ve benefited from his policies are himself and his family. My only special interest is YOU.

Under my leadership, our economy is now growing at the fastest rate ever recorded — 33.1%! While foreign nations are in a free-fall, we are creating an economic powerhouse unrivaled anywhere in the world. Biden wants to lockdown our Country, maybe for years. Crazy! There will be no lockdowns. The great American comeback is underway!

For the last four years you have seen me fight for you — and now I am relying on you to deliver another historic victory for our country. A vote for me and the Republican Party is a vote for the American Dream!

Get out and vote!
