20200903: MAGA Rally, Latrobe, Pennsylvania, 7 pm EDT

For his second rally of the 2020 Presidential Campaign re-start, President Donald J. Trump and his team have chosen to stick to small town America, and have chosen…Latrobe, Pennsylvania?

Uhh, where is this place? (Thanks to an anon @Jack’s place, we have a map.)

More to the point, tonight’s rally is in a swing state where the officials have been known to play the precinct waiting game on election night.

Looks like the savvy 4D chess player is going to try to head that off at the pass.

Main Street, Latrobe, Pennsylvania

So, aside from being in what appears to be the fabled steel country of western Pennsylvania, what info is there out there on Latrobe? From wiki:

In 1852, Oliver Barnes (a civil engineer for the Pennsylvania Railroad) laid out the plans for the community that was incorporated in 1854 as the Borough of Latrobe. Barnes named the town for his best friend and college classmate, Benjamin Latrobe, who was a civil engineer for the B&O Railroad. (His father, Benjamin Henry Latrobe, was the architect who rebuilt the United States Capitol in Washington, DC, after the War of 1812.)

Its location along the route of the Pennsylvania Railroad helped Latrobe develop into a significant industrial hub. Latrobe was also served by the Ligonier Valley Railroad from 1877 to 1952.

In 1904, the banana split was invented in Latrobe by David Evans Strickler at the pharmacy that later became named Strickler’s Drug Store.[4]

Two interurban (long-distance trolley) lines served Latrobe:

The Westmoreland County Railway Company connected Latrobe to Derry and operated from 1904 to 1932.[5]
The Latrobe Street Railway Company connected Latrobe to Kingston and began operations in 1900.[6] This line was purchased by West Penn Railways, which eventually linked it with its network running through Youngstown, Pleasant Unity, and eventually to Greensburg and Uniontown. Service ceased in 1952.[6]
Latrobe has two sites on the National Register of Historic Places within its city boundaries:

Pennsylvania Railroad Station at Latrobe (325 McKinley Avenue): This station was built by the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1903.[7]
Citizens National Bank of Latrobe (816 Ligonier Street, at Main Street): This was previously known as the Mellon Bank Building. This six-story, 1926 structure was designed by the Greensburg firm of Batholomew and Smith.[8]
The former Fort Sloan, a small fortress established by the British settlers in the 1700s, is now a private residence, situated on the corner of Cedar St. and Raymond Ave.

So, it’s a rail town. Got it.

And has become standard operating procedure with these rallies, the crowds started turning up early.

I’ll add live links to this post during the late afternoon as they become available.

Dems left out Under God twice from their convention. THey lied about it.
MAIL IN BALLOTS ARE A DISGRACE!!!

Shows WHO they are – and who their god is!!!

They wanna send out 80MILLION BALLOTS!!!
If you mail it in, do it early. Then go to polls and see if they have it. If not, vote right then and there. If mail in ever gets there, they’ll check again & strike it because they see you voted in person. TRUMP STRATEGY
I hope we have a Landslide like we’ve never seen. IMO, that solves the cheating problem. Nothing they do can change his majority. If they try, it exposes they’re cheating. Can’t have more than 100% of registered voters. All he needs is 51% and done.

I didn’t even think about it. You’re in a Shutdown. You have a Governor that has you. Shut. Down. BOOOOOOOOOO

Sylvia Avery

These shut downs are causing much greater problems. You have to open up the commonwealth.
Oh, now he’s talking about Cuomo (aka Tinsel Tits) the convention center hospital, the hospital ships…..it’s so sad what’s happening in NY. If you kill someone they don’t prosecute, but they will if it’s a political issue.

Sylvia Avery

(That’s Marica’s name for Cuomo.)

😁

Gingersmom2009

Tinsel Tits. 😄 That gives Party Tits a run for their money.

Sylvia Avery

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Covadonga

Yay, Marica!

Talking about Cuomo, I built him a hospital, and a convention center, and sent him a ship. And he didn’t even use it. What a shame!
On Nov 4th, everything will be open. They’re doing this for political reasons.
It’s a disgrace, Dem Govs & Mayors.

People see what the Democrat Governors have done to their states – all will end November 4th – this is pure insanity – cutting their noses to spite their faces – other states are prospering – carrying the economy forward.
He said it outright – this is all political – do people who have lost their businesses – living on close to nothing – hanging on for what – their livelihood has been lost – their lives forever changed. I know this hurts PT.

Sylvia Avery

Over the next four years we will become the manufacturing superpower of the world. We will end our reliance on China forever. If they hadn’t wasted half a year of my life on a perfect phone call we would have had this all done by now! These are bad people. I really don’t believe they love our country.

Sylvia Avery

Ha! Pelosi. She must have treated the salon pretty bad. They turned her in!

😂😂

If she was set up she shouldn’t be leading the House.
I want the salon owner to lead the House.
CRAZY NANCY – Highly overrated person, Look they turned off the camera! BOOO

ozzytrumpster

In her defence nancy thought the sign said saloon

Sylvia Avery

ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!! You kill, ozzy!!!

Over next 4yrs we will be Mfg Superpower of World and end reliance on Chyna once and for all.
If they didn’t waste a year and a half of my life on Impeachment, this would’ve all been done.
Fake RUSHA, Fake Ukraine
These are BAD people. They don’t love our Country.

Sylvia Avery

Pelosi. She’s a highly overrated person. Look! They turned off the camera! They don’t want me to say that.

duchess01

duchess01

Pennsylvania needs to declare its independence from their errant governor!!!

Gingersmom2009

And that man in a dress.

duchess01

Oh, yes – the Health Commissioner, Mom!

PA Patriots, PA where our Founding Fathers declared our Independence

Coal miners, RR builders, we’re making it greater than ever before

duchess01

Every speech is positive and uplifting!!! THIS IS IT, FOLKS!!! The Rallies have begun – and it is going to be great!!!

Sylvia Avery

He’s a better candidate than last time. He’s a more polished speaker. He’s been through the fires, that’s for sure. Tested. He’s done so much for us. Only if they succeed in stealing the election will he lose.

I sooo LOVE HIM!!! ❤❤❤

#MeToo

GA/FL

“Together, we will make America wealthy again,
