Nancy Pelosi gave the second smartest speech on Inauguration Day. Pelosi’s speech was a retread of much of what Barack Obama said repeatedly in the days since the colossal result of election day November 7, 2016. Unfortunately for Pelosi/Obama and the other kooks on the left, Donald J. Trump gave the smartest, toughest, most contrary, speech since the second Lincoln inaugural.

We feared the rituals of Inauguration Day and the first full day as president, for Donald J. Trump. We appreciate, understand, respect, pay deference to, ritual. Rituals are important. But rituals have a purpose. On the plus side, rituals can be a soothing balm in times of trouble such as the death of a loved one or a national leader.
Rituals can also have a “civilizing” effect. The coronation of a king invested the monarch with the full weight and majesty of divine right. The rituals of coronation chasten the potentate to use power wisely and sparingly.
As we watched the “peaceful transition of power” that is Inauguration Day, we understood and feared that Donald J. Trump would be “civilized” by the numbing set pieces of national ritual. The formal meeting as the old president about to leave office greets the soon-to-be president; the “tea” of same; the ride to the ceremonies; the formality of announcements as power players are greeted at the main ceremony; the oath of office officiated by the head of the third branch of government to induct the head of the executive branch of office on a platform built as it had been built many times earlier for previous inaugurations; the oath itself handed down from the time the very first president took office to the now forty-fifth executive to utter; the old executive given the boot via transport once reserved for his use; the luncheon given by the second branch of government to welcome the new executive with all it’s ritual speeches by power players, the inaugural parade with representatives of the governed marching along as the new executive salutes military units and quasi military units when appropriate; finally the inaugural balls in which the executive shares a dance with the spouse; then the next day the final ritual of rituals as an Inaugural Prayer Service convenes to foster national unity.
“… we are gathered today in that old House chamber where Lincoln served beneath the same clock that Lincoln heard ticking but under the gaze of Clio. Mr. President, right up there, above that door, the Muse of History, Clio. For almost two centuries, Clio and her clock have reminded the men and women of these hallowed halls that we are part of history. That our words and actions will face the judgment of history and that we are part of the long and honorable heritage of our democracy.”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi continued with her “history” lesson to President Trump. The meaning of course and the intent was clear to all. Nancy Pelosi was trying to “civilize” President Trump. By “civilize” we mean to break Trump, to turn Trump into Hillary Clinton.
Many of our regular readers will recall the defense offered during the election by many of Hillary Clinton voters. The argument offered by us on this website was that Hillary Clinton and her campaign had willingly sold itself and proudly become “the Obama Third Term” and therefore we rejected her candidacy. To counter our indisputable argument, to sooth our anger at Hillary Clinton’s willful metamorphosis into an Obama insect, those who advocated for Hillary Clinton offered their defense which was “Vote for Hillary Clinton because Hillary Clinton is lying.” We found that bizarre argument unsettling, unsatisfactory, and unpersuasive. The argument was that Hillary Clinton was lying to the electorate and that once in office she would not be the “Obama Third Term” she campaigned on in appearance and ads.
Nancy Pelosi on Inauguration Day was doing a mulligan on the “vote for Hillary Clinton because Hillary Clinton is lying” argument. What Nancy Pelosi, rather surprisingly smart to us, was saying to President Trump was “President Trump ignore what you said during the campaign. Turn what you said during the campaign into a lie. If you lie to your voters we can work with you and you will be rewarded by history and Big Media. Just lie Mr. Newly-elected President, just lie to all your supporters. Turn yourself into a liar Mr. President.”
Pelosi’s speech was an echo of Obama’s constant swan song. Obama argued every chance he got after the 2016 elections that once Trump became president he would change. Obama argued that once Trump became President Trump the “job” would “transform” Trump:
Trump will get wake-up call when he takes office, Obama says
President-elect Donald Trump is in for a quick wake-up call and will have to adjust his temperament when he confronts the realities of his new job on Jan. 20, President Barack Obama said on Monday.
In a news conference at the White House, Obama said the freewheeling Trump could not be as outspoken as he was during the long and bitter campaign that ended last week with the Republican’s surprise win over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
“This office has a way of waking you up,” Obama said. “Those aspects of his positions or predispositions that don’t match up with reality, he will find shaken up pretty quick because reality has a way of asserting itself.”
The two men met in the Oval Office last week to begin the transition of power. Obama said on Monday he believed Trump would be pragmatic in office and not approach the country’s problems from an ideological perspective.
“There are going to be certain elements of his temperament that will not serve him well, unless he recognizes them and corrects them,” Obama said.
“Because when you’re a candidate and you say something that is inaccurate or controversial it has less impact than it does when you’re president of the United States. Everybody around the world is paying attention. Markets move,” he said. [snip]
But Obama, who criticized Trump’s temperament during the campaign, said it was important for Trump to send signals of unity after the hard-fought campaign. He said the political gifts that allowed the Republican to upset Clinton would be put to good use in the White House.
“I’ve been encouraged by his statements on election night about the need for unity, his interest in being president for all people,” Obama said. “In an election like this that was so hotly contested and so divided, gestures matter.”
Obama was trying to turn Trump into a liar. Obama wanted Trump to be like Obama. Lie during the campaign then become something else once in office. It was the “vote for Hillary ’cause she’s a liar” argument.
That was our fear. We wanted “Let Trump Be Trump!” Obama/Pelosi/Schumer wanted “Let Trump be Hillary.”
Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people.
For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth.
Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs, and while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.
That all changes starting right here and right now, because this moment is your moment. It belongs to you. It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. This is your day, this is your celebration, and this, the United States of America, is your country.
What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. Jan. 20, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.
The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.
President Trump said that to all the power players to their faces. During the primaries Trump had railed against a Republican president at a Republican debate, denounced the Republican establishment too at Republican debates hosted by the Republican establishment! Now it was President Trump against the entire corrupt establishment. “Politicians prospered” thundered Trump, as the lighting bolts from Olympus, the hammer from Asgard, the anger of the Almighty, flowed from his mouth with the vow “That all changes starting right her and right now!”
So much for “ceremony”. So much for the soothing, calming effects of ritual. Channeling all the anger in the cosmos, President Trump championed the “people” governed, and denounced the “small group in our nation’s capital” bleeding the nation dry; the “Washington” that “flourished” as the nation withered; the “politicians” that “prospered” as the “factories closed”.
It had all been heard before from Donald J. Trump. But none of it, not one single word, had ever been heard on the ritual Inaugural Day – spoken to all the powerful assembled – from the lips of an uncompromised PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump.
Yes, the PRESIDENT! The President remained untamed. President Donald J. Trump in his magnificent Inaugural Address was not turned into a liar by Clio, by Hillary, by Obama, by Ryan, by Schumer, by McConnell, by Big Media, by the protests, by the establishment of the Republican Party, by the Obama Dimocrat Party, by the forces of nature, by ceremonies, by rituals. Trump remained true.
Still we were unsatisfied. That speech was prepared before the ceremonies and rituals had a chance to take their “calming” effect. The Inaugural Address was written before the numbing rituals could break his spirit. The speech could have been the last gasp of truth before the lies came. Still, we worried.
On the First Day, the first hours, we still worried even after that cry of war that President Trump uttered. All that was left of the day to unworry us, to calm us, was the thought of apparel. What would Melania wear?
As we waited for the Inaugural Balls to begin to swing we waited and worried. We were not particularly calmed by the first Executive Orders issued by President Trump. One Executive Order impacted ObamaCare in the direction we wanted. Another Executive Order blocked new regulations. The promise of these executive orders was great but we understood that until the various cabinet appointees were confirmed the big items would have to wait. We were willing to wait until the confirmations came and the flood of executive orders began. But we were still unsatisfied and still worried about the effect of ceremony and ritual.
In brief remarks before the couple had their first dance, Mr. Trump said it was “a great day” and that the evening was “so special.”
“People that weren’t so nice to me were saying that we did a really good job today,” he said. “They hated to do it, but they did it and I respect that, I respect that.”
Mr. Trump, dressed in a dark tuxedo with a cummerbund, danced to a cover of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” with First Lady Melania Trump, who wore a long, strapless ecru gown designed by Carolina Herrera.
Nodding to the work ahead, Mr. Trump said supporters will be “so happy” with what they see from the administration over the coming weeks.
“You’re going to see things happening over the next few weeks, oh, you’re going to be so happy,” he said. “We want to see great things happen for our country we want to make America great again and we will, and we will.”
“Now the work begins, there’s no games right? There’s no games,” he continued. “We’re not playing games, the work begins.”
At the second ball of the night, the Freedom Ball, Mr. Trump echoed similar themes to his speech at the first ball he attended.
“There is so much spirit in our country, this is such a great country and we are gonna do things we will not be taken advantage of anymore, we will not,” he said.
“Now the fun begins,” he said. “We’re going to do a really good job, and I will be fighting every single day for you.”
And at the third and final inaugural ball Mr. Trump attended, the Armed Services Ball, Mr. Trump spoke via satellite with U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan. One by one, they congratulated him on his inauguration.
“Honestly not only the support you’ve given me, the courage that you show is incredible and it’s going to be appreciated,” he said. “It’s appreciated now but it’s going to be appreciated now more than ever before.”
Mr. Trump added that he likes the service members better than he likes the media.
“I like them much better than i like the media, right?” he said. “These are much finer people, nicer people … you are the nicest people.”
Trump answered our worries with finality. The Inaugural Address was a prepared speech from weeks or days ago. But the impromptu remarks, the statements that came from President Donald J. Trump’s mouth at the Inaugural Balls came from his heart and displayed testicular fortitude. “Now the work begins, there’s no games right? There’s no games, We’re not playing games, the work begins.” Trump answered our worries. “I will be fighting every single day for you.”

There are ancient tales of Alexander, the son of Philip II of Macedon. One story is of the time the young Alexander visited the Oracle at Delphi to seek blessings for his upcoming battle against Persia (modern day Iran), and/or prophesy of his fortune foretold. Alexander arrived either too late for the scheduled ceremonies of prophesy or the Oracle was too tired. Alexander would not be granted audience and fortune’s secrets would remain unspoken.
As the story is told, with some variety, young Alexander did not stand by ceremony. Alexander seized, grabbed, Pythia the high Oracle by the hair, until she screamed “My son, you will shake the world!!!” Alexander had prophesy and his fortune laid before him.
“My son, you will shake the world!!!” We said the same on January 20, 2017.
President Trump on Friday signed an executive order directing federal agencies to “ease the burden of ObamaCare,” according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer. [snip]
White House chief of staff Reince Priebus is also sending out a memo ordering a government-wide “regulatory freeze until further notified,” Spicer said.
The Donald, er, the President-Elect, er, The President of the United States Donald J. Trump, a.k.a. Deodorant Trump, does not stop working. He does not stop. He is not tired of winning. “Oh waiter, more wins please! but no whine, leave that to the Obama Dimocrats.”
Update III: We wrote a speech for Donald J. Trump to deliver on the night of his nomination. Today President Donald J. Trump delivered that speech in large part. We wrote “Power to the People” as his nomination speech. Today President Trump has delivered a powerful message of Power to the People. President Trump’s speech is Biblical Jeremiah in tone, and revolutionary patriot of 1776 in it’s Americanism.
America First, JOBs, Bring back our Dreams, Build, Build, Build, American hands – American Labor, Buy American, Hire American, We will Shine, Unite the civilized world, allegiance to the United States of America, our loyalty to each other, no room for prejudice, speak our minds openly, America United, Unstoppable, No Fear, Protected by our military, Protected by God, Think Big, Dream Bigger, Politicians all talk no action, time for empty talk is over, the hour of action, We will not fail, we all bleed the same blood of patriots, we all salute the same American flag, YOU WILL NEVER BE IGNORED AGAIN!!! WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Update II: It’s President Donald John Trump now. Make America Great Again President Donald J. Trump.
Update: It’s Vice President Michael Richard Pence now.
Hostile takeover of the Republican Party complete. Destruction of the Bush, Obama, Clinton, families complete. Annihilation of the Obama Democrat Party complete nationally, in states, in counties, in state legislatures, complete. Reelection slogan for 2020 (“Keep America Great”) complete. Make America Great Again, about to begin.
At noon today, no need to worry, despair, nor our “Hold On, Trump’s Coming” video.
No need for the video because a little after noon, President Donald J. Trump arrives.
Thus far the stars are the women. KellyAnne Conway in a military style outfit and red hat. Melania Trump in a stunning light blue outfit in matching long gloves reminiscent of… well… Jackie.
Where are the Democrats in this the hour of total humiliation? They have become “fleebaggers” again. That tactic worked out so badly for them when they tried it in Wisconsin the dumb-asses have tried it again fulfilling the Democrat Party motto of “if it’s stupid, do it again and again”.
In our first article of election year 2016 we wrote:
We have no doubt that 2016 will be a horrid year. We do not doubt that Barack Obama, like a wounded animal thrashing about, will continue his attempts to rip the Constitution and the fabric and future of the country. We also do not doubt that the next president, to be elected in 2016, will not merely “occupy” 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue but inhabit the White House with a commitment and love for America’s highest ideals and love for the nation and all its people. But first we will have to survive Obama’s last mile. We will survive, then thrive.
Not an hour goes by without Obama continuing to attempt to destroy the nation. But there are now less hours for Obama to do his damage. We have survived and now we will thrive. Just count the seconds. It’s almost over.
Just Hold On, Trump’s Coming — to rescue America. To Make America Great Again.
Once again the obvious is missed by so-called analysts and Big Media pundits. We’ll explain it all.
Let’s start with that coward John Lewis. John Lewis is busy with his individual race-baiting brand of “interposition and nullification” by declaring President-Elect Donald J. Trump to be an illegitimate president. John Lewis is a coward and a pig. We recall on October 2007 John Lewis endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Then the Obama attacks against John Lewis began. John Lewis, coward, broke down and dumped Hillary Clinton to endorse Obama on February 28, 2008. Now coward John Lewis pretends he is a big Hillary hero. Go to Hell John Lewis and go jump off the Edmund Pettus Bridge, you fat coward and old pig. Your glory days decades ago are over and now you are just a lump of ugliness.
Next, Obama and Russia. What is Obama up to? Well, he’s protecting Islam of course. Here’s what’s going on: Obama in his last week as chief goofball sent thousands of troops to Poland. Why? Because Obama is trying to set up troubles with Russia for Trump to deal with as the first priority and first headache for Trump the moment he becomes president.
Why is Obama trying to set up Russia as President Donald J. Trump’s first headache? In one small part because it continues the John Lewis “illegitimate” narrative. But the big reason for Obama to set up Russia as President Donald J. Trump’s first big and long-term headache is to protect Muslims and Islam. How? Well as long as President-Elect, soon President Donald J. Trump, is busy with Russia the longer he won’t be able to turn his full time attention to Muslim terrorists and the Islamic animals who bring ruin to all the world.
Obama’s use of Russia to protect Islam and the animals who kill in the name of Islam won’t work. For one, unlike Obama, Donald J. Trump can chew gum and walk at the same time. Second, Donald J. Trump knows about priorities. Trump will not be distracted by Obama’s tiny shiny balls trying to protect Islam and Muslim terrorists.
Which brings us to the “intelligence community” or IC. On Sunday, that dullard from the C.I.A. warned Trump about Russia. CIA director John Brennan despite all his many failures and the many stupidities and outright treacheries of Barack Obama tried on Sunday to lecture President-Elect Donald J. Trump on what he should and should not do. Most of his attacks centered on, you guessed it, Russia:
CIA Director John Brennan on Sunday had a stern parting message for Republican Donald Trump days before he assumes the U.S. presidency, cautioning him against loosening sanctions on Russia and warning him to watch what he says.
Brennan rebuked the president-elect for comparing U.S. intelligence practices to Nazi Germany in comments that laid bare the friction between Trump and the intelligence community he has criticized and is on the verge of commanding. [snip]
“What I do find outrageous is equating intelligence community with Nazi Germany,” Brennan said. “I do take great umbrage at that.”
His comments followed a tumultuous week of finger-pointing between Trump and intelligence agency leaders over an unsubstantiated report of compromising information Moscow had collected on Trump.
The unverified dossier was summarized in a U.S. intelligence report presented to President Barack Obama and Trump this month that concluded Russia tried to sway the outcome of the Nov. 8 election by hacking and other means. It did not make an assessment on whether the attempts were successful.
Trump accused the intelligence community of leaking the compromising information, which its leaders denied. They said it was their responsibility to inform the president-elect that the allegations were being circulated.
So what is this all about? Well its all about the distraction campaign using Russia to protect Islam. It’s also part of the delegitimize campaign. But it’s largely about Blackmail. We’ve seen it all before. It’s an old Gestapo trick. J. Edgar Hoover of the F.B.I. used this trick too. It went this way in 1960 and 1962: J. Edgar Hoover tells JFK there are all these dirty stories about you circulating, then Hoover presents a dossier on JFK to JFK with all the dirty secrets. After JFK sees what Hoover has in his files Hoover tells JFK, “don’t worry, I’ll protect you and keep this secret”.
In JFK’s case most of what Hoover had in his files was true. There was tons of blackmail material in Hoover’s files. But it does not matter whether the materials are true or false. The purpose is to intimidate, to let the new president know in no uncertain terms who is the boss in the relationship. As with JFK, who laughed off Hoover, after Hoover presented the blackmail material (maybe that’s due to the fact that the Kennedys themselves knew how to blackmail and because they knew J. Edgar Hoover was a homosexual) the attempt to intimidate President-Elect Donald J. Trump did not work.
When the blackmail material did not intimidate President-Elect Donald J. Trump, Big Media CNN got the wink and nod from the IC to publicize the material. Then Buzzfeed got the wink and nod from the IC to dump their ugly turd.
Problem is, none of this worked. Why? Because Trump fights. Trump took the fight against Big Media and the “intelligence community” public. President-Elect Donald J. Trump let them all know who is top dog, who wags the tail, and who are the dog’s turds.
The international community will send Donald Trump a strong warning that only a two-state solution can solve the Israel-Palestinian crisis, amid signs that the EU is willing to diverge from the US on Israel policy.
A conference in Paris on Sunday of more than 70 countries, organised by the French government and coming five days before Trump is inaugurated, will warn that the two-state solution is under threat and urge both sides in the conflict to resume talks.
It comes as Palestinians expressed concern that Trump advisers endorse the controversial Israeli settlement programme and want to move the US embassy to Jerusalem. [snip]
Netanyahu has called the event futile, rigged and “a relic”, saying: “It’s a last gasp of the past before the future sets in.”
That future is called Donald J. Trump. Barack Obama wants to befuddle President Donald J. Trump with Russia headaches so that Obama can attack Israel, as well as protect Islam and Muslim terrorists from Trump. Meanwhile Obama, after the Paris coven today plans more dangerous anti-Israel pro-Islam treacheries this last week:
Meanwhile, the PA official speaking to Breitbart Jerusalem said that any upcoming UN action would be geared toward bypassing the Mideast policies of the incoming Donald Trump administration by establishing binding guidelines for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and a halt to settlement activity.
“The new motion will seek to set up a clear timeline for negotiations resulting in the establishment of a Palestinian state and stipulate a procedure for overseeing the implementation of Resolution 2334, including posting inspectors to the Palestinian territories,” said the PA official, who requested anonymity. [snip]
The PA official added that the Paris conference is expected to call on all sides to establish a Palestinian state within the so-called 1967 borders in a relatively short period of time, perhaps by the beginning of 2019.
“The goal is for these moves to be binding for the incoming American administration, which would have to adopt them as its platform, and also for the European Union, which is expected to step up should there be clashes with Trump,” he said.
“In the next few days we’ll know whether we’re headed to the UNSC,” the official said. “Right now, the chances of that are very high. From our viewpoint, the goal is partially achieved. The settlements have been designated as the main obstacle to the peace process and now it’s up for the world to make clear that, in the event of failure, the side that would refuse to comply with the will of the international community, as codified in the UN resolution, is the guilty side.”
The official said that at present it remains unclear whether any UNSC session would produce a new resolution or merely validate last week’s resolution.
“Following in the EU’s steps, now the US recognizes that it’s Israel that sabotages the peace talks, and does so through its settlement enterprise,” the official claimed. “The motion is of immense significance – it validates all the decisions by the international community, chiefly the EU, to slap sanctions on Israel in the form of halting cooperation, halting the financing of mutual projects and expansion in scope of marking settlement products to all the products from every single settlement.”
The PA official spoke following reports in recent days that there could be another UN Security Council resolution or some other UN action before Obama leaves office.
With the EU as his treacherous cats paw, Barack Obama wants to saddle President Trump with strife on Russia so that Trump cannot defend Israel nor move to attack the march of Islam against the West. But Barack Obama (as is the EU) and his policies are a relic, a last gasp of the past. Donald J. Trump is the future. The future will fight against the past to defend Israel, protect the West, and Make America Great Again.
Once 20-17 arrives the heavens open up with fire, music, joy, and achievement. Right now though, contrary to what superficial analysis declares, there’s not really much going on. We are in the preliminary stages, the preparatory stages. It’s an important time, akin to the early evening when you bathe and put on a tuxedo or evening gown, but the show only begins when the opera curtains go up and the music flows.
On 20-17 the curtain goes up and the music will flow.
Not much is going on. Yes, there are a bunch of posturing “hearings” in the United States Senate but that’s all a big bunch of nothing because the Trump nominees will be approved especially after their stellar, often calculatingly dull, appearances before our dimwitted senators.
There was that tinkling fun over the comic book attack on President-Elect Donald J. Trump we had so much fun with over at the comments section in our last article, but that has been so thoroughly refuted the fun with that is over. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, “it’s over for Trump” failed again and once again what didn’t kill Trump has made him stronger (especially against the “intelligence” community and the loathsome Big Media).
President-Elect Donald J. Trump did hold a triumphant press conference which scared Big Media and the loony left because so much truth was revealed. Back in 2008 we noted that Big Media is a political party, not a news dissemination enterprise. That observation has been proven true as we witness Big Media fake news dispensed like stay awake pills at an Obama speech. Trump stomped on CNN fake news dissemination and Big Media howled. It was fun and few now even recall that Obama tried to make news this week. But Obama is the past. We here at Big Pink are in gorgeous dressing gowns with long trains and Jackie Kennedy style long white gloves, or in Tuxedos, waiting for the curtain to rise.
So what is there is do until 20-17? We’ll soon be writing our last articles of the last age summarizing what we have since 2009 called “The Age Of Fake”. We hit it on the nail with that description didn’t we? Now everyone talks about “fake news” and fake this and fake that. Obama and Obama worship was the Age Of Fake but on 20-17 we will enter “The Age of Triumph, the Age of Greatness“.
As the Age of Fake ends we kick out the door Barack Obama and his silly “Farewell Address” which rendered BuzzFeed to tears. We kid you not. Buzzfeed idiot employees and the official BuzzFeed account confessed the tears were flowing because, they wondered, if we Americans “deserve the Obamas as President and First Lady?” Go to the link. Observe the lunacy. The answer is we Americans did not deserve to be punished with the Obama’s but the corruption in our elites has been so massive for eight years we suffered.
The Age of Fake featured many instances of race-baiting. Often the story was that some poor innocent black person or persons (Muslims pulled the same lie repeatedly too) were attacked by some vicious KKK white organization and soon… after a police investigation to arrest the vicious white KKK organization of monsters… the culprit would be revealed to be a black person who either bombed the black church or posted the ugly leaflet, or sent the “racist” tweet. The Age of Fake ends with more fake “racism”:
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Anne Arundel County Police Department has charged a 14-year-old girl with a juvenile citation for sending a threatening tweet related to Arundel High School.
Police began their investigation after Arundel High School officials told them about a suspicious Twitter account.
The account, named @KoolkidsKlanKkk, reportedly sent out a tweet that read, “We’re planning to attack tomorrow”.
Yeah, it was a 14-year old black girl that sent out the “racist” tweet from the “kkk” which threatened an “attack”. Age of Fake.
Fake “racism” and fake “racists” have been all the rage in the Age of Fake. If you’re a black person that rejects fake “racism” fake “racists” and the all too real race-baiting of Obama Dimocrats and Barack Obama himself, well you’re just a “house nigga”. That’s what happened to Senator Tim Scott.
Senator Tim Scott and other black people dared to defend and endorse soon to be the Attorney General, Senator Jeff Sessions. For that offense Senator Tim Scott, a black man, was called a “house nigga”. Senator Tim Scott’s response came with the wit and brevity we expect to be standard practice in the coming “Age of Triumph, Age of Greatness“:
Born into slavery as one of the youngest of thirteen children of James and Elizabeth in Ulster County, New York, in 1797, Sojourner Truth’s given name was Isabella Baumfree. As almost all of her brothers and sisters had been sold to other slave owners, some of her earliest memories were of her parents’ stories of the cruel loss of their other children. [snip]
In 1843, she changed her name to Sojourner Truth – her name for a traveling preacher, one who speaks the truth – and left New York. She traveled throughout New England, where she met and worked with abolitionists such as William Lloyd Garrison, and Frederick Douglass. Her life story, The Narrative of Sojourner Truth: A Northern Slave, written with the help of friend Olive Gilbert, was published in 1850.
While traveling and speaking in states across the country, Sojourner Truth met many women abolitionists and noticed that although women could be part of the leadership in the abolitionist movement, they could neither vote nor hold public office. It was this realization that led Sojourner to become an outspoken supporter of women’s rights.
In 1851, she addressed the Women’s Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio, delivering her famous speech “Ain’t I a Woman?” The applause she received that day has been described as “deafening.” From that time on, she became known as a leading advocate for the rights of women. She became one of the nineteenth century’s most eloquent voices for the cause of anti-slavery and women’s rights.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the President of Gays & Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies met with each other on Friday, along with other heads of affinity groups from the State Department, during which time Clinton again voiced her pledge to review the inequities in how the State Department treats its gay and straight employees.
Michelle Schohn, president of Gays & Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies, raised the issue of how the department treats its gay employees during the brief meeting, and Clinton again promised to review current policies. Schohn stated: “It was an overwhelmingly positive meeting. There wasn’t a lot of time to talk with her because she was meeting with all the affinity groups, so we each got a tiny chunk of time to be able to say something to her.”

NOLimits.org - Because we want to stay connected with the wonderful people we met and worked with all over the country in the last two years.
Because we want to share our ideas and experiences, our common goals, and nonpartisan solutions to the challenges that we face - and there are no limits to what we can achieve when we do.
And because we want to keep working for a better future for every child, from every family – a world in which no limits is not just our goal, but a reality!
NoLimits.org will "keep you up to date with news about issues on which Hillary took a lead and we know you care so much about," group President Ann Lewis said in an e-mail to as many as 2 million people culled from the Clinton campaign database.
Because No Limits is a registered nonprofit, "it cannot do anything political. It has to be nonpartisan," said Lewis, a longtime senior adviser to Clinton.
In Clinton's job as secretary of state for President Obama, her political dealings are highly restricted.
For example, she shut down her political action committee.
Some, like Democratic consultant and former Bill Clinton aide Chris Lehane, dismiss talk that the group could be a springboard for Clinton to try again for the White House in, say, 2016.
"Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar," Lehane said. "I think this is just [a] group of folks who developed relationships in an intense [electoral] environment and want to stay together."
But the University of Virginia's Larry Sabato countered: "Whenever a group like this says it's not a political organization, you just know it is."
"Maybe [this] is Hillary's answer to Obama's new 'change' group that controls his golden mailing list. Maybe it's a way for Secretary of State Clinton to mobilize backing for her objectives at the State Department," he said. "And maybe [it's] a standby committee of supporters in case Hillary decides to get back into elective politics."
Democratic consultant Hank Sheinkopf said NoLimits.org is "one way to make sure that she - and/or the former President - still have political leverage."

Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton Meets Afghan Women Lawyers. Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton met today at the State Department with fourteen prominent Afghan women judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys.

Secretary Clinton told them: "Your American friends greatly admire your bravery and courage. It is your work in the tough environment of Afghanistan for women lawyers that will bring real reform and the rule of law to the Afghan people. As President Obama made clear yesterday in his first foreign policy announcement, we are committed to supporting your efforts to bring security and stability to your country."
