Today saw the premiere of two videos, each with a different vision of America

One of the constants in 2020 is that we're deluged by videos.  Actual news videos, worrisome deep fake videos, political ads, product ads, and artistic videos.  All of them, in one way or another, shape how we view our world and, often, how we view ourselves.

Because videos have such a profound effect on the way in which we perceive things, it's noteworthy that two videos dropped today, both of which are getting positive buzz and both which make statements about what America is or what it could be.

On the serious side, the GOP released a video entitled "For Democrats, It's All about Power."  The video is a compilation of all those moments when Democrats said something that made conservatives think, "Oh, my!  The commercials practically write themselves."  The ad intercuts power-hungry Democrat statements with Trump's warning to voters about the freedoms the American left wants to take from the American people.

The Daily Wire helpfully assembled a list of the top moments included in the video, all highlighting the way in which Democrats want raw power:

  • Audio of news reports talking about ANTIFA violence.
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saying the world will end in 12 years.
  • Beto O'Rourke saying that Democrats are going to confiscate American's guns.
  • Elizabeth Warren saying she wants to eliminate cars and electricity.
  • Bernie Sanders saying that "you cannot go too far" on pushing radical climate agendas.
  • Joe Biden saying he wants to shut down coal-burning plants
  • Bernie Sanders saying it's a good thing when people line up in bread lines
  • Beto O'Rourke saying he will have law enforcement go to people's homes to confiscate guns.
  • Joe Biden agreeing that "a Biden administration means they're going to come for my guns."
  • Ted Lieu saying "I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech, but the First Amendment prevents me from doing so."
  • Beto O'Rourke agreeing with the statement, "religious institutions should lose tax-exempt status if they oppose same-sex marriage."

The ad also takes on the Kavanaugh hearing, the push to destroy the Electoral College (without a constitutional amendment, of course); third-trimester abortion; the Democrats' driving need to strip Americans of their hard-earned money through higher taxes; and Rep. Al Green's famous warning that if the Democrats fail to impeach Trump, he will win in 2020.

At periodic intervals, we hear Trump saying, "They would strip Americans of their constitutional rights ... use the power of the law to punish their opponents ... they would shut down your free speech ... the governor of Virginia, he stated he would execute a baby after birth ... our radical Democrat opponents are driven by hatred, prejudice, and rage. They want to destroy you. They only care about their own political power."

The tag line is Lindsey Graham, speaking at the Kavanaugh hearings: "Boy, y'all want power.  God, I hope you never get it."  It is a powerful ad and one that deserves to be shared.

On the lighter side, there's a great new ad from Budweiser, which used to be an American company (started in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1876).  Although it's now just a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev, which is headquartered in Belgium, it clearly found itself a wonderful pro-American ad agency.  We see that in Budweiser's newest Super Bowl ad, which it released Friday on Twitter.  It's clearly aimed at an audience disgusted by ads demeaning men or smugly denigrating Americans.  It's always refreshing to see an ad capture who Americans really are.  (Hint: They're not the evil, hate-filled people that Democrats paint them as being.)  Watch and enjoy:
