Trump Wins, Shut Down Scolds Lose

These days there’s so much static you might not have noticed President Trump’s victory over the shut down scolds. Find out more in How-Trump-Won-Open-Up-Debate-Bob Davis Podcast 927.

How He Did It

Even more how Trump pushed governors to start reopening is important.

Shut Down Protesters Minority

First of all polls show most people support reasonable social distancing guidelines. Moreover those who protested emergency orders represent a minority of Americans.

Lifting The Curtain On Trump’s 2020 Tactics

As a result HOW the president managed to win the reopen debate is key.

This Proves Trump Could Win. Again!

Most importantly the mechanics of this victory show how Trump could win the 2020 election.

Social Media and Misinformation

First of all I’ve been watching how right wing groups use social media and internet platforms to float ideas.

Fringe Fest

Secondly it usually starts with the fringe.

Mainstreamers, Think Tanks and The President Chime In

Then more mainstream sources add commentary, videos, memes and other content in the same vein. Finally, the president chimes in.

Joining Debate On Trump’s Turf

In addition when the rest of the media starts debating it only adds fuel to the fire. Learn more in How-Trump-Won-Open-Up-Debate-Bob Davis Podcast 927.

How To Be Your Own Reporter

I’ve explained all this in a previous podcast which you can find here.

Learn Tactics

However even I was a little surprised when the White House employed the tactics I’ve uncovered in the open up debate.

If You Think Trump Can’t Win In 2020

Above all this is something democrats should pay attention to. In short even some republicans think the president cannot be reelected.

Democrats Be Warned

Meanwhile many democrats say the president cannot win in 2020.

When you consider these tactics, for instance, those who doubt a Trump victory in 2020 might want to think about it.

Trump Just Won A Big One

On the other hand Trump just won a huge victory isolating some of the biggest democrat governors, and opening up the rest of the country,

Pay Attention

In conclusion, this isn’t a podcast about the Corona Virus.

It’s about modern political tactics.

Let’s-Talk-About-China-Bob Davis Podcast 924

Let’s Talk About Blaming China

The president likes to blame China for everything these days. From Corona to trade China is the world’s bad guy. Learn more in Let’s-Talk-About-China-Bob Davis Podcast 924.

Pandemics Can Turn Into Revolutions

First of all pandemics have a way of triggering once in a lifetime revolutions and war.

Trump’s Internal Polling

Especially relevant is the president’s recent internal polls. Currently his own polling shows Trump in trouble in battleground states.

Signs Of Trouble For Republicans

Even more republicans are starting to question Trump’s initial response to the Corona-Virus Pandemic. Especially since this is what is hurting the leader of the Republican party. Most noteworthy are signs of trouble in must win House and Senate races for Republicans.

Change The Subject

Seems like the old political saying, “If you don’t like what the media’s talking about change the subject” is the order of the day.

Blame China

Certainly China seems like a convenient scapegoat. No one likes a Tyranny, right?

Stealing Our Jobs, Letting Corona Loose, Buying Our Debt

Even more China is blamed for stealing US Jobs, cooking up the Corona Virus in a lab and letting it loose. Similarly lately China’s been blamed for feathering presumed Democratic Candidate Joe Biden’s nest and a host of military incursions and threats. Finally for ‘owning all our debt’, not true by the way.

Time To Talk About China

As a result it’s time to talk about China. We do in Let’s-Talk-About-China-Bob Davis Podcast 924.

Trade and World History If You Can Stand It

Hence in one place a little history of trade in the world. In addition a little history of Taiwan and Mainland China.

US History On Trade Too

Finally some discussion of our own history on trade, commercial espionage, and trade protection.

How Do We Meet The Challenge

Above all China is a challenge to the United States. How we handle the challenge will not only determine the future of China and the US, but our character.

Weak Minds Need Not Apply

For that reason it’s necessary to say leadership that has proven to be weak minded, bellicose without cause or unpredictable will not fare well in this environment.

Food for thought

Radio’s Unique Museum

I worked in radio for years. Radio is still my first love despite podcasting for ten years now. Most noteworthy in this podcast is a visit to a unique museum. Learn more in Top40-Radio-Museum-Roadtrip-Bob Davis Podcast 881.

Top 40’s Roots

Top Forty radio’s roots are in the mid south and deep south. Now there’s a shrine to top forty radio in Chattanooga Tennessee. Even more, there’s also a working radio station there visitors can tour.

Small and Medium Markets

Especially relevant to the roots of top forty radio in the south, are the many small and medium markets in this region that spawned some of America’s great radio talent.

When Radio Was The Only Game In Town

First of all in the 1950’s, 1960’s, and most of the 1970’s there was no Internet, no social media, no cable television and no way for a generation to communicate except for radio. I’ll explain in In Top40-Radio-Museum-Roadtrip-Bob Davis Podcast 881.

Building Companies and Lives

Second, operators and employees of these radio stations in growing small and medium markets across the country could build companies and lives on the profits.

All About The Music

Above all the music made top forty radio and radio itself a phenomenon.

A One Off Moment In History

The events and situations that made all of that possible will certainly never happen again.

A slice of Architectural History Too

Furthermore during that period of time some of the most successful AM top forty stations were housed near their transmitters. Many in neighborhoods and developments.

Most Are Already Gone

Low slung period brick buildings and mid century architecture and furnishings were the order of the day. Most of those old stations are gone.

This Place Remains And It’s Worth Seeing

In contrast WFLI AM and FM remain exactly as it was through the 1960’s and 70’s, in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Fun Fun Fun

Finally my friend and I took a tour and spent an afternoon remembering how much fun radio used to be. Thanks again to the National Top Forty Radio Hall of Fame and Museum.

In Top40-Radio-Museum-Roadtrip-Bob Davis Podcast 881 you’ll hear the story of the radio station and more.
