Pandemic-Finally-Kills-Conservatism-Bob Davis Podcast 912

Uncertainty Rules The News

These days you don’t know what the news will bring. Furthermore the latest spate of shoot-from-the-hip fixes take the cake. Learn more in Pandemic-Finally-Kills-Conservatism-Bob Davis Podcast 912.

Pandemic Podcast Series

In addition I’ve been doing a series of podcasts on reactions to the virus.

Old Political World Already Dead

First of all the left-right political spectrum is out of date.

Conservative Versus Liberal? Get Real

Consequently, conservative versus liberal doesn’t even begin to describe what we’re dealing with.

Minimizer In Chief Suddenly Worried

Even more President Trump minimized what became a pandemic from the start. As a result, his supporters parroted what he said with gusto.

Trump went from pointing fingers and calling Coronavirus a hoax, to cowed in one day!

Learn why in Pandemic-Finally-Kills-Conservatism-Bob Davis Podcast 912.

Losing Their Principles For Trump

Conservatives believe in Limited Government or personal freedom, Economic Freedom the US Constitution and above all a debt free future. Moreover the right wing hates deficit spending, the Federal Reserve and Executive Overreach?

Trump Shifts

And yet in a few hours President Trump abandoned conservatives! He proposed a series of policy ideas that should have former and current democratic presidential candidates claiming copyright infringement!

Checks, Deficits, Bail Outs

Especially relevant, perhaps two thousand dollar checks for every American. A trillion dollar bail out package on top of a trillion dollar deficit just for 2020 and 23 trillion in public debt. Using the military. Shutting down private businesses.

Threatening The Federal Reserve Chair

In addition, the president threatened to fire the Federal Reserve Chair because interest rates weren’t being cut far enough, fast enough.

Wall Street Response

Finally the response from Wall Street isn’t good.

Investors want to see the president leading the government to take real action to address a growing crisis.

Never Waste A Crisis

In conclusion, it’s time for questions about the future of the republican party and this president. Remember those Obama Era Memes about not wasting a crisis?

Now they’re being applied to ‘conservatives’.

Blood-In-The-Streets-Yet?-Bob Davis Podcast 909

Blood In The Streets

First of all the phrase ‘blood in the streets’ means you buy when everything goes to hell, learn more in Blood-In-The-Streets-Yet?-Bob Davis Podcast 909. Second of all you have to wonder if we’re getting to that point.

Predicting The Future Is For Suckers

I don’t like predicting the future. I like to wait and see what happens and consequently make judgements.

Streets Are Sensitive To Shocks

On the other hand word travels fast these days. We’re very sensitive to shock. We often are responding at the same time leaders are responding. Long before any in depth facts can be determined.

Perception Is Reality

Moreover in this environment the old saw ‘Perception Is Reality‘ is more true than ever.

Wait and See

I am often asked what I think of some political development. Joe Biden’s ‘sudden surge’. The ‘Super Tuesday‘ results. I still think ‘wait and see’ is the best approach.

Markets Rule The Roost Right Now

Especially relevant now is the course Coronavirus will take. More importantly the economic effects triggered by the real time reactions to the virus.

Each Podcast Needs Clarification

I have been podcasting about just these topics. Furthermore it seems like each podcast needs more clarification.

Primaries and Candidates

In Blood-In-The-Streets-Yet?-Bob Davis Podcast 909 there’s clarification and amplification. There is also most noteworthy additional thoughts about the primaries and potential presidential candidates.

It’s A Long Way To November

Finally we have a long way to go until early November when we actually vote for candidates and initiatives in local, state, house and senate elections. And when we cast our preference for president.

Electoral College Or Congress?

Even more it will be mid December when the electoral college will choose a president. Or, God forbid, the US Congress. A lot can happen between now and then.

About That Blood In The Streets Question

Maybe it would be better to return to the question at the beginning of this blog. Is there blood in the streets yet? And what does it mean.

Dog-Fashion-Show-2-4-1-Bob Davis Podcast 906

First of all I came back from the mega road trip for a friend’s event in Minneapolis. Second back in the studio and sharing some final thoughts about the road trip. Check it out in Dog-Fashion-Show-2-4-1-Bob Davis Podcast 906.

These days no one talks about these events where people from all walks of life have interests that bring them together. I talk a lot about events like that in my podcasts.

So it was most noteworthy to attend an event that helps animals in need. In fact it was a surprise to find out I was going to have to emcee the event!

Even more coming back for this event made me think of all the places and experiences I had on a road trip that turned out to be much longer than I thought it was going to be. Learn more in Dog-Fashion-Show-2-4-1-Bob Davis Podcast 906.

Especially relevant? Coming away from these road trips in awe of how big this country actually is. Moreover the contrast between the smallness of social media and how diverse we Americans actually are!

In the second half of this podcast some final thoughts about broken politics. Especially relevant? Russian Trolls ‘influencing’ the 2020 election. Again.

I have to point out the glaring difference between what we appear to be on social media and how we really are.

Finally my critics on one side of the political spectrum can’t seem to understand why I covered ‘the democrats’ in Iowa. Seems like no one can bear to listen to something they might disagree with!

I tell the story of getting kicked out of a Mike Pence event versus being welcomed with open arms by the supposedly ‘horrible’ democrats. I’ll also tell you why I am sitting this election and future elections out.
