Trump troops tramping victorious in Ventura today
About 200 show up in front of Pacific View Mall to celebrate the election and support Trump and his agenda
Why were hundreds of people rallying for President Donald Trump in front of the busy Pacific View Mall in the seaside City of Ventura at Main St. and Mills today? Isn’t the election over? Will the campaign ever end? I asked myself those questions while driving there to see what was going on. After arrival, I asked 10 people why they were there and how they found out about the event.
All 10 said basically same thing: that they were there to support the President and his agenda. It was almost like “talking points.” Some elaborated about saving the country, saving the economy, getting control of our borders, checking Globalism, restoring law and order and helping the economy and jobs. We asked even more how they knew about the event. Most said that they found out about the rally through “The Internet” or friends. Questioning more closely, “Internet” turned out to be Trump-supporting Facebook … and friends or organizations they affiliated with. Interestingly, not a single person cited a local or regional print newspaper or mainstream broadcast or Internet source.
How it happened
A group called Main Street Patriots had called for nationwide Trump rallies on Feb 27 and March 4. The new Make California Great Again group supported it … There was an event last week in Simi Valley (see article below) where about 80 people showed up. There were many others around the country.
This week, it was Ventura’s turn. Local organizations brought people out to the event. It wasn’t easy because many likely thought: “Why would hundreds of people be rallying for President Donald Trump in front of the busy Pacific View Mall in Ventura on a beautiful Saturday? Isn’t the election over? Will the campaign ever end?” But come they did.
The purpose of the event was to show support for President Donald Trump, some of his key agenda items and personnel appointments, with emphasis on the positive. It overwhelmingly was. There weren’t supposed to be any negative signs, but a few “Hillary for Prison” signs and shirts and one sign demeaning “Moonbeam” (our state Governor) showed up.
…People identifying themselves as Latinos for Trump, Bikers for Trump, Vets for Trump, were on site. From what we gathered, most were Ventura County people. There were out of towners from Santa Barbara, San Fernando Valley, LA and points more distant. Some just came on their own from reading about it. Many seemed to know each other and new contacts were also made. Demographics were whites, some Latinos, Asians, a couple of blacks, about 50-50 men/women.

Trump supporters rally in Simi Valley
About 70 people wearing red, white and blue gathered Saturday on all four corners of a Simi Valley intersection to rally in support of President Donald Trump.
A much smaller group from the opposition was nearby, with conflict between the two sides occasionally erupting.
The Trump supporters took over the sidewalks at Cochran Street and Sycamore Drive to express their backing of the newly inaugurated president, who they say is keeping his campaign promises.
“I think he’s accomplished more in 30 days than most presidents do in four years,” said Gil Muramatsu, a Thousand Oaks retiree.
Lea Williams planned the event through Facebook.
Social media posts led the Simi Valley resident to the conservative news website Breitbart News for more information about the “Spirit of America” rallies being planned across the country. Main Street Patriots, a self-proclaimed grassroots organization linked to one of the tea party movement’s founders, had announced the rallies a few days ago.
Williams, who was involved in the Trump campaign’s Central California efforts, immediately took on the task of planning such a rally in her city. A second pro-Trump rally is scheduled for 1-3 p.m. March 4 at Main Street and Mills Road in Ventura, Williams said.
“It’s just everyday people coming together and showing support for the national agenda,” Williams said, adding that she thinks it’s just as powerful to be expressive about what you support rather than what you don’t support.
Williams and others brought U.S. flags and signs, many with Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” printed on them, and chanted “U-S-A” and “Trump” as cars passed.
Shelly Turley drove from Lake Elsinore in Riverside County because it was the only rally she could attend due to her work schedule. She was there with Anita, her partner of 27 years. Turley said she’s “super-excited” about the new administration and does not think Trump is a racist, as some of the counterdemonstrators’ signs suggested.
“I think people have misunderstood his statements,” Turley said.
Mexican-American Hector Moreno stood in support of Trump. The Oxnard man has been a naturalized citizen since 1996. He said he came to America for education and “to progress.”
He stood strong in his belief that untrue reports were spreading the lie that Trump hates Mexicans. Furthermore, he said some who come to the country illegally have shown they are a threat to public safety.
“They’re not little angels,” Moreno said.
Several military veterans showed up to the event with American flags. P.S. “Toby” Denny, more commonly referred to as “chief, “carried the folded-up flag that was placed on his father’s coffin after he was killed in action. Denny, wearing a collared shirt with the words “seal team” written in gold thread, said he likes that Trump is not “beholden” to anyone. He’s breathing a sigh of relief now that Trump is in office.
A cacophony of car honks in support of the rally filled the busy intersection. see there were other voices,” said Perry, who was dressed as Lady Liberty and carrying a sign that said “Love Trumps Hate.”
Jessica Townsend, also of Simi Valley, stood next to her. She saw Perry standing by herself as she drove by, but came back to join her because she didn’t want her to be alone. Townsend also said she didn’t want to have any regrets about not standing up for what she believes in. Rounding out their group was Peggie Noisette, who held a sign urging an investigation into any potential connection between Trump and Russia.
“I just want to know,” Noisette said. “I think Americans deserve to know the truth, whatever it is.” READ MORE AT>> http://www.vcstar.com/story/news/2017/02/25/trump-supporters-rally-simi-valley/98418474/
