Selling Trump

President Trump may be facing one of the most unusual re-election campaigns in the history of the country. Unlike most incumbents, his own party will be working hard to elect his opponent. The fact is, America is a one-party country. The two parties are just the two faces of the same crowd. Both faces hate Trump. The voters for his party, on the other hand, largely get this. Despite their best efforts, the Republican party is the home of populist white people.

The other problem for Trump is he can’t actually campaign. Both parties have conspired to lock most of the country down to the point where it is impossible to hold rallies, meet and greet voters and whip up support in person. The uniparty candidate is a drooling vegetable locked in his basement, so the uniparty is fine with it. The less people see of Dementia Joe the better. Trump on the other hand really needs the social proof that comes from holding rallies and campaign events.

Political campaigns are like a sales campaign, in that the goal is to both gain attention from the target audience and win over those willing to listen. Instead of selling a product or service, you’re selling a person. All the civic nationalist blather about the issues or the candidate’s positions is self-serving nonsense. The real goal of a every campaign is to sell the person to the majority. Men follow men and voters pick the person they like the best on a personal level, outside of partisan considerations.

In the case of an incumbent, the challenge for the people running the campaign is their guy is a known quantity. He has been in office and almost all of the people who voted for him the last time will be voting again. Maybe some of the opposing votes can be brought around, but the pool of potential voters is largely fixed. In most cases, re-election campaigns are run as base elections. The idea is to remind the supporters to get out there and support their guy on election day.

For President Trump, one possible way around this is to do what he did the last time and operate outside the normal confines. In 2016, he used his own plane to fly around to rallies staged at airports. This both prevented the uniparty rent-a-mobs from attacking his voters and made it easier for him to fly in, do his thing, and then head to the next stop. They also made great television. People were fascinated by what he was doing, so he got attention even from the people who are paid to hate him.

This time he can’t do that, but he still needs to find a way to offer that social proof those rallies provided people. One way to do that would be video chats. In the depression, FDR used fire side chats, broadcast over radio, to build support for his program. People listened and then talked about it the next day. This built support because people saw that their friends and neighbors were also tuning into these shows. Trump could do the same thing on-line with weekly videos.

The thing is, a crisis is good for the incumbent if he can be seen as the source of stability and safety. If from now until election day Trump is doing weekly half hour updates on the Covid issues, the economy and other issues that turn up, he can establish himself as the rock of stability. It would also force the media and Dementia Joe to respond to what Trump is saying and doing. It would both reassure his supporters and potential supporters, plus drive his opponents insane.

The other thing Trump will need to do is re-establish himself as both the tribune of the people and the hero taking on the dragon known as Washington. For his first term he has tried to cajole and convince the dragon to play nice. All he has got for his trouble is lawsuits, impeachment and a special counsel investigation. That has put off a lot of his supporters, who correctly wonder if all the tough talk was just that. Trump needs to pick some fights with the uniparty, especially the GOP side.

Trump has plenty of opportunities in this regard. The executive orders continuing unemployment insurance and small business aid was a master stroke, as it puts Trump on the side of the people, versus the petty ruling class. Trump needs to run against Washington in the same way Truman did in 1948. He has nothing to lose by irritating the Republicans. They already hate him. Even if the GOP loses the Senate, nothing would change all that much for Trump.

The other aspect of this, however, is Trump needs to be more than just a chaos agent, throwing sand in the gears of the establishment. Trump has been handed a unique opportunity in having an opponent who is clinically dead. Now one really knows what would happen if Biden wins. He will probably die in office. He has said as much during his campaign and made it a feature of his VP choice. Trump needs to exploit this and make himself the predictable outcome of the election.

There’s also the FBI matter that may be coming to a head. The temptation for Trump will be to personalize it, make it about these people hating him. Instead, he needs to use this in the larger narrative of Trump the tribune of the people fighting the corrupt dragon that is the ruling class. People like this plot, which is why so many movies are based on it. That and making Biden defend this corruption as the man of the establishment would be comedy gold.

Another thing Trump needs to do in this election is own his failures. Incumbents have a record and they need to own them, warts and all. In the case of Trump, he has the opportunity to turn many of his failures into positive qualities. He can talk about his naivete about the corruption in Washington. He can talk about how he was not prepared for his own party to undermine his efforts. He can talk about his trouble staffing his administration and having to rely on finks.

Another avenue unique to Trump is that his opponents are making it easy to turn their weapons against them. For example, what many of the local tyrants are doing in response to the virus could easily be compared to Nazi Germany. That would make his opponents insane with rage. He can also call them science deniers. Imagine a flippant comment about how people who cannot tell the difference between boys and girls want us to trust them on the complex science of a pandemic.

This is also a chance to force them to defend their pogroms against people excising their right to speak freely. Trump should do something bold like move to Gab or hire guys like Darren Beatty and Blake Neff as speech writers. The Left will squeal about hanging out with Nazis, but he can respond with how he is taking a stand in defence of our rights as Americans. In other words, it is about making a point and striking a blow against the scolds of cancel culture.

The thing with the Left is they always tell you where the holes in their lines are, by screaming bloody murder about them. They are not demanding everyone be banned from the internet because they feel this is their strength. The theatrics are a bluff, because they know as soon as someone with real power pushes back, the game is over and this stuff comes to a halt. Trump has real power. He can punch these cry-bullies in the nose and make them pay for their antics.

Finally, people vote for something, not against something. Trump needs to offer a positive agenda for his second term. Nationalist trade policies, responsible immigration policies, pro-American foreign policy. With Trump you get peace, stability and the opportunity to make a better life for your children and grandchildren. Contrasted to the vision of unrestrained hatred and anger on offer by the Left, a vote for Trump is a vote for tomorrow, while a vote for Biden is a vote for yesterday.

I’m not blackpilling, I’m saying that just hiding out domestically and going full prepper is not ,and never has been, viable.

Win this thing (balkanization or reconquista), flee the country (at least temporarily), or prepare for manful defeat and just pray for a miracle. We should already see that there is nothing beautiful they won’t tirelessly seek out to smash – the community you want to build is beautiful indeed.

How come accelerationism is always a strategy proposed in dissident politics and never like in military campaigns or aviation or cancer treatment?

It’s almost as if accelerationism is not even a real strategy for anything at all but just some kind of cope when people feel they’re losing everything anyway and just want to seize some feeling of control back.

How about we DECELERATE as much as possible when we’re losing and only ACCELERATE when we’re winning? I’m not sure I can really get into the galaxy brain approach of INTENTIONALLY LOSING FASTER.

Yesterday’s press conference was instructive. I never tune into these things, but happened to do so for background noise. I felt Trump looked and sounded tired reading off his script. Then he was whisked away by the Secret Service, and everyone was left with the mystery of what was going on. After a few minutes of media panic, he returns again—calm and with a little swagger. Suddenly doing a Q-A with the reporters he seemed fresh and confident—even though he had nothing to tell them about what had just happened.

Your skepticism is warranted. But as our esteemed blog host has noted – Trump can be a bull in a china shop. Is he crazy enough to start the mother of all feuds in Washington by actually turning the tables on big guns in The Swamp? Many dissidents don’t think so… but Trump has proven them wrong in the past. Now would be an excellent time to do it again… but as you say… don’t get your hopes up.

And for example: why is Tom Hanks now in possesion of a Greek passport? To avoid prosecution for liking little girls.

I’ve often wondered why he hasn’t jumped to Gab. In one shot, he could pull the rug out from under Twitter and establish an alternate channel for communication.

Interestingly, I’ve noticed that for the last few days Biden is declining in the polls. Not drastically, but steadily and consistently.

Actually they can be, as long as you filter out the noise. For example, I’ll generally discard any national poll with a sample size smaller than 1200. Anything smaller than that isn’t going to capture regional differences.

Like any numbers, they can be seasoned to taste. Even to do an honest poll is a challenge, e.g. how to word questions neutrally.
In today’s news, a poll reports 36% of Blacks are leaning to Trump. Usually they are about 90% to Dems. This sounds encouraging for our side.If Negroes are voting Republican then things are worse than I thought!

The one I saw had blacks at about 20% Trump. Even that is probably 3 sigma off the mean black support for a sitting Republican. This is definitely encouraging as blacks are a central pillar in the shaky edifice of Democratic support. At this point I’m skeptical of pretty much every poll though simply because a lot of the value of them is their “Ceteris paribus” (all other things equal) quality.

Don’t worry – the Dems will pull a rabbit out of the hat in the form of a Kamala Harris (or similar) running mate for Lunchbucket Joe, once the polls get too low.
And Presto! He will have more forward momentum. I predict if he wins, he won’t make it past the first year of his term before “retiring.”

There is also the fact that the left is trying to exploit chaos for their own benefit. But normie senses that this is getting completely out of control. Who wants to pay ridiculously high taxes and put up with bureaucratic red tape to run an expensive business in a big city when the authorities will not provide basic police protection from mobs? The videos of those riots and mass lootings are going to show up on Trump campaign ads. Normie is not sure his life will return to normal. He is looking to Trump to give him that assurance.

“Normal?” Certainly not in NYC or San Fran. Beyond Antifa riots, witness the recent news items about the problems of housing the homeless in luxury (!) hotels. Huge expense to the city, the “guests” trash the place until a Hazmat clean-up team is required. Meanwhile, the darlings are swilling booze on the street corner. No word if they’re the ones doing the muggings too, but why not? The City is putting me up in this nice hotel. Might as well pick up some spending money and a nice phone from one of these guys walking down the street. This past… Read more »

I second Guest’s advice to Rodent (and any others similar thereto). I too likely share your avocation, and was doing well in deep blue territory until That Thing happened, I narrowly escaped with my life and realized I would likely die (or worse) if I didnt get out asap. Anywhere is better than a death trap, and you, my buddy, are living in a death trap. Its not that hard to get new meal ticket in a red or purple area – certainly less painful than the ER/mortuary versus prison choice you have in enemy territory.

That battle was lost thirty or forty years ago, mostly because we chose to flee rather than fight. Nonetheless, that ground is lost and the smart play is to acknowledge the loss and cede the lost ground to the enemy. The focus now should be on isolating and containing them in the cities by doing everything possible to make life outside the cities intolerable for them.

But if we all–or at least the vast majority of us–were to relocate to, oh, I don’t know, Bitter Root, Wyoming–we would create an awfully stout stronghold that could develop into something far greater.

The only periapt against the vagaries of unwanted migration, i.e. invasion, is the creation of an ethnostate, and then sustaining the will to repulse interlopers. For the ethnostate to happen, however, there must be a hard disscon core in a certain area, and the populace must be overwhelmingly white. That’s simply not happening in any major metropolitan area. It can happen, however, in the Mountain West, Ozarka and Appalachia.

I don’t live there, but familiar wih the territory. I tend to agree with your plan to stand and fight if need be. Certainly most of the city south of say the Eisenhower (Englewood, Marquette Park, etc., etc) is at/near Somalia lterritory. The neighborhood where you are – it’s Them encroachng on your territory. You shouldn’t have to cede – at least not without a fight. That said, I assume you have an escape plan in place (initially to the North and beyond I-355, or into WI) then someplace to go from there.

And your ‘terrified’ friends will still vote for gun control and gibs for POCs, because they’re urban creatures and those are their internal values. I would argue all those who think black riots will result in a groundswell of normie Whites voting ‘conservatively’ is what Exile labels ‘hopium.’ The number of White voters is not what it was even four years ago, and the civil unrest will not result in a backlash that is in any way truly ‘conservative.’

You’re still trying to close the barn door when the barn itself is falling down. Immigration is merely a buzzword without a recognition of current demographics and replacement rate. Immigration will be ‘resolved’ when a majority of Whites realize their real predicament, and when/if that happens, the emphasis will and should be on repatriation (by any and all means necessary).

I think that is generally right, Marko, although not the genocide component since that is an ongoing project. There are stages of genocide prior to liquidation, and the War on Whites has a bit of housecleaning to do prior to unleashing its terror. Voters will not be fine with that as it draws even closer. In other words, things would return to a slow boil under Biden until the time gets right for them to try to kill us.

A lot of people think that Sessions was Trump’s biggest GOPe Judas, but Pence has been Brutus incarnate. That Trump has survived this long against that level of treachery is mind-boggling. He will lie low until after Durham walks in front of the microphones later this week, and then unleash his counterattack beginning in September. This coming election will be an intentional wipe-out that is designed to bury the old dinosaurs leading the Democrat Party and allow a new breed of AOCs to takeover.

Agree.

It’s ridiculous how much you’re arguing about who was and wasn’t right and who has and hasn’t apologized for whatever. Is this a dissident movement or a Sarah Lawrence dorm floor meeting?

That’s what puts me off about Z’s political posts. They seem to flail like reeds in the wind, from the darkest black pill one week to the cope-iest political obsessions the next. And some of his analysis tends toward the breezily and overconfidently shallow, which readers are starting to pick up on. He lacks the groundedness and self-reflection of Derbyshire, for example.

This is apart from Z’s posts on apolitical topics, which I find fantastic. And Z is still a wonderful writer; his turns of phrase make me laugh out loud.

Derbyshire’s podcast basically has a vibe now that says “thank God I’m checking out in a few years. It’s your problem now.” He reminds me of my grandparents who would look at the freaks on Sunset Boulevard as they drove past, rolled their eyes and basically knew that they would soon be in the cemetery not dealing with them.

Anyway, my back siezed up; and I had a couple days to reflect on just how piss poor I’ll do if the current insanity actually leads to armed conflict. I’m not going to… Read more »

“Zman lacks the groundedness and self-reflection of Derbyshire, for example.” I think you’re forgetting that these guys are also in the entertainment business. And as with any enduring entertainer, Z varies it up. As a longtime reader it’s up to you to decipher how all-in he is on any given take. Try writing something straight-down-the-line every freaking day. But make no mistake, if you’re confused about where he stands on the crucial items then you’ve got memory problems. Anyway, I see Z as more realistic and less flat-footed politically than many of the one-note hardcores you’re talking about.

If you hate Trump, what’s to dislike about the piece written? Trump might win if he reads and takes the suggestions outlined? Commentary is designed to make people think. That’s what we got today.

Trump just wants Ivanka’s friends to like him. Seriously, this thesis explains everything he’s done since inauguration.

Sure, he needs us now to get re-elected, but we’re just his booty call. Then it will be back to supplication to Ivanka’s friends.

It will be a good thing if these social infections due to the antifa virus can be maintained in vitro, as in South Minneapolis, downtown Portland, and Pine Street Seattle. Perhaps by observing the effects of this pathogen from a safe distance, the general body politic could be expected to develop appropriate antibodies. Mr. Trump would do well to keep it that way. Mr. Biden would certainly continue the experiment in vivo.

“Courting the black vote” is rarely about getting the black vote. It’s about appealing to nice white ladies who don’t feel comfy voting someone who doesn’t have the same ignorant indulgent attitude towards blacks.

Any one right wing could come out in favor or lynching and grape drank prohibition and get approximately similar numbers of black votes as if they did with prison reform and low black unemployment… but that candidate would lose a dangerous portion of the nice white lady vote.

Suryadevara started her career at PricewaterhouseCoopers while attending the University of Madras. She then interned at the World Bank in 2002 and went on to UBS as an investment banker.  She joined General Motors in 2004.  In 2013, she was appointed the CEO and chief investment officer of GM Asset Management.
