It Was A Revolution: @RealDonaldTrump At The Bridge

Update: Earlier this year, in May, on Memorial Day, we wrote an article with this opening paragraph:

No traditional Memorial Day article from us. We can’t anymore. In the past few years we feel somewhat shameful on Veterans Day and Memorial Day as we see what Barack Obama and his gangster government have done to this country. So we can’t write rah-rah or solemn commemorative articles to cheer on Veterans or those who gave their “last full measure of devotion”. Not with Barack Obama as president.

The article from Memorial Day ended with this paragraph:

On Wednesday, May will be gone – it will be June. Six months of this horrid Obama last year almost gone. Six months gone. Soon there will be a new president and America will be great again. That’s good news.

Good news indeed. We can’t wait to have a grand Thanksgiving and a Very Merry Christmas. Today we thank with full and happy hearts, and without any shame for our country, our veterans. May God bless and keep you veterans on this glorious and redemptive Veterans’ Day.



—————————————————–

After 16 years, 16 heartbreaking years of horror, America and the world stand before the bridge with Donald J. Trump. Donald J. Trump, the revolutionary as important as a founding father, is about to lead America and the world across the bridge to the 21st century. We should all rejoice.

The American revolution of 1776 was a conservative revolution – our middle class revolutionaries would not hang priests nor rename months and days. The French revolution and the revolutions of 1789 were all radical revolutions out to destroy not only the political system but the entire social order. In 1776 America it was a conservative revolution expressed in “taxation without representation is tyranny”. That was 1776. In 2016 we have witnessed another revolution

Let’s fully understand and appreciate the great moment we are in. American democracy was designed as a sort of controlled revolution from the very beginning. The idea was that there was a government in power and every four years we held an election by the people in which that government would either be overthrown or remain in place – all within the framework of the Constitution. It all worked until recently.

The rise of the monster ruling class in which neither political parties nor candidates, neither institutions of finance nor education, cared about change in any meaningful way, meant the notion of a controlled revolution no longer worked. With the rise of the ruling class in America there was never any real change. All that happened in our elections was a change in technocrats that ran the machine.

That “uniparty” construction led to this moment, this revolutionary moment. Donald J. Trump has restored the Republic. Donald J. Trump is very much like all revolutionary leaders who stage a revolution from the hills then ride to take over the capital. Donald J. Trump is our very own Katniss Everdeen.



We are at the great moment. Consider what Donald J. Trump has achieved. Donald J. Trump has destroyed the Clintons. Donald J. Trump has destroyed the Bushs. Donald J. Trump has destroyed Big Media. Donald J. Trump has destroyed the neo-con Republican Party. Donald J. Trump has destroyed the Democratic Party. Donald J. Trump has destroyed the Obamas and the Obama Dimocrat Party. That’s why we so often referred to Trump as “the Final Avenger”.

We are at a great moment. Donald J. Trump confronted the powerful at the behest of his white working class army and beat Big Labor. Donald J. Trump declared that a nation without borders is not a nation and Trump followed that with a call to stop illegal immigration. Donald J. Trump then beat all the politically correct weapons designed to silence him and beat the open borders, globalization, Chamber of Commerce, low wage, export jobs, ruling class financiers.

We are at a great moment. All the fear mongering from the foreign policy wing of the ruling class Donald J. Trump also beat. All the threats from foreign leaders and the American fifth columnists Donald J. Trump also beat.

We’ve been damn right in our analysis since 2007. It was the working class that mattered, particularly the white working class that for so long has been not only ignored but despised by the totalitarians of the left. We’ve been damn right about the need to kill Big Media and the Big Media Party. Recall we advised Hillary Clinton to run as an independent and wrote this speech for her:

My fellow Americans. You know me. You know what I stand for. You might not always agree with me but you know my love for this exceptional country and my belief that America is and must remain a beacon of light for all the world.

You know me and you know that I like every other political figure in this country have been part of the problem. I have been a supporter of the Democratic Party even when I disagreed with the direction and policy positions of the party. But now it is time for a change. It is time for a new politics. It is time to finally cross the bridge into the 21st century that Bill Clinton talked about in 1996.

Crossing that bridge has been a long time coming. At the beginning of the century a Republican president led us astray. Eight years later a Democratic president has us wandering down the wrong track into oblivion.

A recent study concluded that our citizens have “near zero impact” on government policy. This means our democracy is no more.

The blame for the loss of our democracy is directly attributable to our political parties which care more about themselves than about the American people. The founders warned us. The founders did not want political parties. James Madison stated that, human passions, have, in turn, divided mankind into parties, inflamed them with mutual animosity, and rendered them much more disposed to vex and oppress each other than to co-operate for their common good.

As I said, I have been part of the problem but now I want to be part of the solution. Republicans hate Democrats. Democrats hate Republicans. Republican voters are angry with the Republican Party and Democrat voters are angry with the Democratic Party. Let’s end this. Let individuals stand for office on their own.

There once was a need for political parties. We needed them to organize for our political interests. But that is no longer true.

With our technology such as the internet and cell phones and text messages and emails and websites we can organize almost instantaneously.

A candidate for political office does not have to adhere to the narrow confines of a party ideology for the sake of party support. A candidate can now come to the American people and say I believe in this socially liberal policy and at the same time I believe in this fiscally sound policy and I ask for your support and financial contributions. It is then for the people to decide.

That’s why today I am asking for your support unencumbered by the chains of a political party and free to speak for the common good not narrow interests.

Whatever party you belonged to, whatever faction once had your allegiance, join me as we finally cross the bridge into the 21st century.”

For all intents and purposes it was Donald J. Trump that delivered that speech. And Donald J. Trump won because everything from that speech written in August 2014 is what determined the winner of 2016.

Donald J. Trump will be one of the great American presidents. How can we say that one day after Trump became President-elect Trump? Because we have seen President-elect Trump on the job and we know his history. On his first day, hours after he became President-elect Trump, the President-elect spoke with the opposition party leaders, Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer. On his first day the President-elect spoke with Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. The President-elect even spoke with the occupant of the White House.

Unlike the present occupant of the White House, Trump is not flouncing about making silly speeches and debuting pompous signage. President-elect Donald J. Trump is on the job. President-elect Donald J. Trump is ready, willing, and able to govern as he prepares for the first hundred days. President-elect Donald J. Trump is prioritizing what he will do on the job, not dreaming about big speeches before big crowds adoring him and golf vacations that last for weeks. President-elect Donald J. Trump is on the job and his agenda is there for all to see.

Already, Canada has agreed to renegotiate NAFTA, Mexico has agreed to renegotiate NAFTA, and TPP is dead. Because Trump opponents like Senators Ayotte, Heck, Kirk, lost their elections while Trump supporters nationwide won on Trump’s coattails, the Republican Party has now been fully destroyed and fully reborn. The Prairie Fire we spoke about on the eve of the Iowa primary consumed the old Republican Party while the party Obama destroyed is dead and buried.

We are at a great moment. It’s a revolutionary moment. Donald J. Trump the revolutionary promised to take the chains off the American people, particularly the white working class, and unshackle the American economy and American power and promise. Donald J. Trump promised to Make America Great Again.

President-elect Donald J. Trump will Make America Great Again, for all, as the founding fathers and mothers intended.

  1. Thank you Nigel Farage for all you did to Make Britain Great Again and to help Donald J. Trump Make America Great Again. Also, thank you Nigel Farage for telling the truth:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/11/10/nigel-farage-describes-barack-obama-as-a-loathsome-creature/

    Mr Farage said in the radio interview: “That Obama creature – a loathsome individual who couldn’t stand our country. He said he’d be at the back of the queue, didn’t he? And Americans don’t use the word queue, they use the word line. So it was all a Dave and George stitch-up.

    “What was interesting was that Trump said we’d be at the front of the queue. Listeners, bear this in mind, however imperfect Donald Trump may be, and he is, his mother was Scottish, he’s spent a lot of time in this country, he loves our country, what we stand for, and our culture.

    “This is a big opportunity for all British business because once we’ve left that awful EU thing we can do our first trade deal with the United States of America. Isn’t that great?”

    Mr Farage also suggested that he was the “catalyst” for the downfall of the” Blairites, the Clintonites, the Bushites”.

    “All these dreadful people who work hand in glove with Goldman Sachs and everybody else, have made themselves rich, and ruined our countries,” he said. “I couldn’t be happier.”

  2. From the Huffington Post (which we did not link to before) comes news which bring great Big Pink guffaws:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donna-brazile-democratic-national-committee_us_5824cb95e4b0ddd4fe7954e8

    WASHINGTON ― On Thursday, Democratic Party officials held their first staff meeting since Hillary Clinton’s stunning loss to Donald Trump in the presidential race. It didn’t go well.

    Donna Brazile, the interim leader of the Democratic National Committee, was giving what one attendee described as “a rip-roaring speech” to about 150 employees, about the need to have hope for wins going forward, when a staffer identified only as Zach stood up with a question.

    “Why should we trust you as chair to lead us through this?” he asked, according to two people in the room. “You backed a flawed candidate, and your friend [former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz] plotted through this to support your own gain and yourself.”

    Some DNC staffers started to boo and some told him to sit down. Brazile began to answer, but Zach had more to say.

    “You are part of the problem,” he continued, blaming Brazile for clearing the path for Trump’s victory by siding with Clinton early on. “You and your friends will die of old age and I’m going to die from climate change. You and your friends let this happen, which is going to cut 40 years off my life expectancy.”

    Zach gathered his things and began to walk out. When Brazile called after him, asking where he was going, he told her to go outside and “tell people there” why she should be leading the party.

    Two DNC staffers confirmed the exchange.

    Asked for comment, Brazile said in an email, “As you can imagine, the individual involved is a member of the staff and I personally do not wish to discuss our internal meetings.” [snip]

    Neither of the DNC staffers who spoke to HuffPost knew Zach’s last name, or much about him. They noted that he wasn’t alone in his sentiments. Some in the room nodded as he spoke, they said, and after he left, some talked about him being right on some points (perhaps not his claims about imminent death by climate change).

    The ruling class and their lapdogs are in turmoil.

  3. Too late you totalitarian animals:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/11/10/liberal-democrats-lash-out-at-dnc-say-overhaul-needed-to-woo-back-working-class-voters/

    In the wreckage of Hillary Clinton’s unexpected loss, liberal lawmakers and advocacy groups have started plotting a major overhaul of the Democratic National Committee, with the aim of using the staid organization to reconnect the party with working-class voters it lost to President-elect Donald Trump. [snip]

    You can’t tell working people you’re on their side while at the same time you’re raising money from Wall Street and the billionaire class,” Sanders said. “The Democratic Party has to be focused on grass-roots America and not wealthy people attending cocktail parties.” [snip]

    Sanders said the reasons for Clinton’s loss were “fairly obvious” and cited two factors: lower turnout by the Democratic base and the Republican nominee’s far greater appeal to white, working-class voters, which Sanders dubbed “a humiliation for the Democratic party.

    White working-class people are deserting the party in droves,” Sanders said.

    Rep. Raul M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.), who with Ellison co-chairs the Congressional Progressive Caucus, gave a similar diagnosis, saying Clinton’s loss was “a function of not understanding the electorate.” He argued that the DNC now needs to become a voice for “economic empowerment” to start wooing back voters lost to Trump.

    “I think you need to clean house at the DNC, no question about it,” Grijalva said. “You’re going to need a DNC that is not just a money collector and employment agency for consultants and pollsters. They have to be advocates, and not just conduits. The DNC should be both an organizing tool and an advocacy tool.”

    The Democratic Party is dead. The Democratic Party must repudiate Barack Obama. The Democratic Party culturally hates and despises the white working class. The white working class now hates the Democratic Party.

    Until the Democratic Party admits we were right and that the Obama situation comedy “coalition” is a joke, they can never recover. It will take at least through the 2018 election (where Republicans will gain at least another ten Senate seats), the 2020 Trump reelection, the 2024 Pence election, for the Democratic Party to wake up. Maybe, a big maybe, after 2028 the new Democratic Party will emerge but we doubt it. Why? Because the Republican Party now is the party of the working class and America. The Democratic Party has no space to fill, no role to play.

  4. The scope of devastation and catastrophe for progressivism, globalism, scamming, and insiderism is just becoming obvious to the oblivious. They don’t know whether to shit or go blind. Next up is the money dries up, paychecks and perks end and they have to clear out their desks/cubbies/rat-holes and go home. That is how hostile takeovers work. Odds are they won’t even get the courtesy of a pink slip. The electricity will be turned off.

  5. It was too late Admin in 2014, Hillary sold out in 2008, that’s why it was all Greek to her, she was already gone…

  6. The leftist Kooks finally realize everything we wrote has been right and they have been wrong:

    http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2016/11/the_democratic_party_establishment_is_finished_after_trump.html

    The Democrats will now control next to nothing above the municipal level. Donald Trump will be president. We are going to be unpacking this night for the rest of our lives, and lives beyond that. We can’t comprehend even 1 percent of what’s just happened. But one aspect of it, minor in the overall sweep, that I’m pretty sure we can comprehend well enough right now: The Democratic Party establishment has beclowned itself and is finished.

    I think of the lawmakers, the consultants, the operatives, and—yes—the center-left media, and how everything said over the past few years leading up to this night was bullshit.

    The midterm losses? That was just a bad cycle, structurally speaking; presidential demographics would make up for it. The party establishment made a grievous mistake rallying around Hillary Clinton. It wasn’t just a lack of recent political seasoning. She was a bad candidate, with no message beyond heckling the opposite sideline. She was a total misfit for both the politics of 2016 and the energy of the Democratic Party as currently constituted. She could not escape her baggage, and she must own that failure herself.

    Theoretically smart people in the Democratic Party should have known that. And yet they worked giddily to clear the field for her. Every power-hungry young Democrat fresh out of law school, every rising lawmaker, every old friend of the Clintons wanted a piece of the action. This was their ride up the power chain. The whole edifice was hollow, built atop the same unearned sense of inevitability that surrounded Clinton in 2008, and it collapsed, just as it collapsed in 2008, only a little later in the calendar. The voters of the party got taken for a ride by the people who controlled it, the ones who promised they had everything figured out and sneeringly dismissed anyone who suggested otherwise. They promised that Hillary Clinton had a lock on the Electoral College. These people didn’t know what they were talking about, and too many of us in the media thought they did.

    We should blame all those people around the Clintons more than the Clintons themselves, and the Clintons themselves deserve a ridiculous amount of blame. Hillary Clinton was just an ambitious person who wanted to be president. There are a lot of people like that. But she was enabled. The Democratic establishment is a club unwelcoming to outsiders, because outsiders don’t first look out for the club. The Clintons will be gone now. For the sake of the country, let them take the hangers-on with them. [snip]

    The ace ground game, the brilliant ad-makers, the top Hollywood talent, and the best analytics operation ever assembled? This was all a joke. The best analytics team in the world, apparently, couldn’t find in their numbers that it was worth making a single stop to Wisconsin following the convention in a campaign against a Republican whose base appeal was in the Rust Belt. Not that an extra visit would have changed the result.

    Think of how wrong the entire national media conversation was—and yes, I contributed my fair share—about how the Republicans were being torn apart as a party. I prewrote a piece Tuesday afternoon, to be published in the event of the expected Clinton win, pushing back against both myself and other members of the media, arguing that Democrats and Republicans were both in existential trouble and that, in the short-term context of a decaying political system, Republicans might even have the edge: Democrats could win the presidency most of the time but never a majority of state governments or the House; while Republicans could always win the majority of state governments and the House, and occasionally—probably in 2020, I thought—the White House. This was wrong. Republicans don’t have a slight edge over Democrats in a decaying political system. Republicans are ascendant. Trump has given them a mission. The country is now theirs.

    Whoever takes over what’s left of the Democratic Party is going to have to find a way to appeal to a broader cross section of the country. It may still be true that in the long term, Republicans can’t win with their demographics, but we found out Tuesday that the long term is still pretty far away. Democrats have to win more white voters. They have to do so in a way that doesn’t erode the anti-racist or anti-sexist planks of the modern party, which are non-negotiable. If only there were a model for this.

    The few Democratic leaders who remain are going to say that it was just a bad note struck here or there, or the lazy Bernie voters who didn’t show up, or Jim Comey, or unfair media coverage of Clinton’s emails, to blame for this loss. I am already seeing Democrats blaming the Electoral College, which until a few hours ago was hailed as the great protector of Democratic virtue for decades to come, and Republicans were silly for not understanding how to crack the blue “wall.” They will say, just wait for Republicans to overreach. Then we’ll be fine.

    Don’t listen to any of this. Everything is not OK. This is not OK.

    That analysis is delusional. The problem was not Hillary Clinton per se. The problem was Hillary Clinton became the Obama Third Term.

    The Dimocrats will not come back for at least a generation. It will take them that long to realize their problem is the party is wrong, entirely wrong in their leftist totalitarian goals. It will take a generation for the Dimocrats to realize that authoritarianism and totalitarianism is what they really represent even if they think their goals are “good”.

    It will take the Dimocrats at least a generation to realize that no matter how “good” their intentions are that their great evil is they want to force Americans to bend to their will. But this is the land of the free and the home of the brave – so they will fail.

    They believed their own bullshit. Stars such as Ben Rhodes, failed novelist and younger unemployable son of elite family re-invents himself as “deputy national security adviser for strategic communications” didn’t really do anything but bullshit with Obama. The collapse is so fast, complete and stunning.

    “Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

  8. I know that obama care must be redone, but what ai don’t like coming out of Dr. Carson is HSA and it’s pretty clear he will have a big hand in it and probably Sec of Health.
    HSA will not help the average Joe…have you had a MRI or CAT scan lately? Thousands of dollats.
    I don’t have an answer outside that prior to Nixon, HCA, healthcare was a not for profit enterprise ( yes Dr.s made a very good living, and still do )…you literally could get excellent insurance out of a cracker jack box it was so cheap. Can that Jeanie be put back in the bottle, very doubtful, but HCA and catastrophic coverage only
    I say noooo.

  9. I have been trying to get familar with reddit. I really like it and there is a one discussion called Soros for Prison and a header that says: STAY EDUCATED – A brief overview of George Soros: The Nazi sympathothizer and collaborator who ran the 2016 DNC campaign and is currently trying to dismantle America.

    I know people here have a huge amount of information about George Soros and if any of you have time to go and add facts before the discussion gets too big you would be doing the whole world a service.

  10. You have got to see this, an anti Trump protestor actually pulls her pants down and shits in public and then pucks it up to smear on a Trump poster…

    THIS IS WHAT WE BIRTHED, WE ARE SCREWED…

  11. Update: Earlier this year, in May, on Memorial Day, we wrote an article with this opening paragraph:

  12. Admin: very nice version of When Johnny Comes Marching Home.

    There is the Morton Gould version of American Salute (When Johnny Comes Marching Home that utilizes the full orchestra. I have been looking for this version for almost twenty years, and found it right after listening to the excellent version you posted. Hope you enjoy this one too.

  13. The freak out is predicated on the fact that the money is going to dry up basically overnight. They can’t say it but that is what is happening as they realize they have to foot the bill. What advertiser is going to buy ads on propaganda outlets and get on the shit list of a Trump Administation? Then the fat media salaries will come straight out of the pockets of the globalists with no businesses to pick-pocket and subsidize them. What alumni donors or state legislatures are going to continue to fund social justice when the extorted fed dollars dry up? That stuff is like a rat hole with a continuous need for public money to pay for progressive apparatchiks. How are sanctuary cities and “we love illegals” locations going to pay for all those freebies, made up public jobs to serve them, and crime when their own local tax base if going to have to foot the entire “virtue signaling” and cheap labor bill? The fed money extorted from the majority for the care and feeding of non-citizens no one invited in just got very dear. The spigot is about to be turned off. Obama claiming that his “programs” must be funded after his presidency is hogwash. And they all know it and it is freaking them out.

    Exactly. Trumps threat to Clinton of a special prosecutor to review her emails has a lot of merit. But her prosecution would not benefit the nation/world the way a more important objective would.

    Sorfeld has his lemmings behaving like demented idiots and is not impressing the American public the way he wants too. He has learned NOTHING from Trumps success. It’s a double Alinsky on him. He has become very unwise.

  15. I heard on the news this morning that Trump has already called the widow of a cop just killed. I don’t believe I ever heard of Obama EVER doing that…

  16. The problem was not Hillary Clinton per se. The problem was Hillary Clinton became the Obama Third Term.

    I agree. But I do think part of it was Hillary per se. Through wikileaks, we got to see how see is the politicians’ politician. People who bothered to look into wikileaks (and my dem colleagues don’t even want to look, as though there is something wrong with learning the truth) saw absolute corruption. We know politics is full of the corrupt, but we saw the evidence in Hillary’s SOS/Clinton Foundation, and the amount of corruption was devastating I believe. Again, that was only if you bothered to learn the truth.

    Plus, if they want to pick one person to blame, why are they avoiding Brazile? They lost because they spent 8 years getting the country to hate whites, and whites left them in the voting booth. Brazile is the one who said the dems don’t need us anymore, they just need urban minorities. I don’t think the wikileaks news of her giving questions THREE times to Hillary now went over well either. But where’s the calling out of her for kicking whites OUT?

    It’s really cool imagining that it might be allowed to be a white person in America again.

  17. I’m agnostic, but I got rather irritated when I saw there are people blaming “white evangelicals” for making Trump win. I’m not a history buff, but I know a few things. I seem to recall white Christians did something once, something important, oh what was it? Oh, yeah, they FOUNDED this country! Sheesh. Heaven forbid they should have some say in what happens to the country, the same one person one vote as anyone else – well, unless you’re part of the DNC and their shenanigans.

    That reminds me. I saw a picture of a person holding up a sign – the sign said, “even heaven has a gate” lol There ya go!

  18. http://nypost.com/2016/10/09/mayor-de-blasios-rant-at-the-post-is-good-for-a-laugh/

    and just now The Post reports that de Blasio has stocked his personal staff with 264 taxpayer-funded “special advisers” — that is, operatives who shortly will peel off and kick-start his 2017 re-election campaign. Your cost: $18.7 million a year. (How many child-welfare case workers might that buy?)

    How is this even allowed? This isn’t campaign money, this is taxpayer money. Disgusting.

  19. Admin,
    Good to see you in good spirits. You inspire me. I may have supported DT but I am not immune to some fear about the planned attack on women’s reproductive rights. It is the mentality of someone that thinks they have the right to make laws about the bodily functions of half the population that is frightening. I he gets too busy making America Great Again to get to that one.

    I for one will plan to support. some civil disobedience there.

    But I did go to the new website and share my experience with the courts and employment discrimination and asked him to Make America Fair Again

  20. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/11/10/report-clinton-campaign-mismanaged-start-ignored-midwestern-voters/

    Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign was “mismanaged from the start, 150 percent” and underestimated the Midwest, according to aides and allies.

    Clinton lost in states she always expected to win: Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. These states had voted for Democratic presidential candidates for decades, but in 2016 went for Trump, along with Ohio.

    “It was a mismanaged campaign from the start, 150 percent. There was so much stuff that needed fixing. I thought we might have learned some lessons from the primary. But as you can tell from last night, probably not,” one aide told The Hill.

    Despite losing Michigan to socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primaries, Clinton assumed the state was a lock for her in the general election and didn’t “double down” there.

    “The big question is ‘How much money did you spend? And what’s left in the bank?’ Because there were states like Michigan that kept sounding the alarm and no one was taking it seriously until the very end. They never really got everything they wanted,” a surrogate said.

    ****************************************

    she had all that money she raised and she wasted it on constant negative tv ads…that in the end…no one listened two…changed the channel

    Bill Clinton’s democratic party is dead…Hillary helped kill them…

  21. Thoughts from my friend in Northern California who only a few short days ago was certain of a bleak future for himself, the country and the world:

    I am sitting here shaking my head at the way the world has been shaken and changed in just two days. I don’t think it has hit people yet — certainly not the pundit class — the massiveness of what is about to overtake the White House and America, and the world.

    He hasn’t even taken office, and yet he has already demolished the Bushes, the Clintons, the media, NAFTA, TTP, political correctness, and the Democrat and Republican parties! My God! He has even changed the language, and I don’t just mean “Schlonged.” Teddy Roosevelt had his “Bully” and “Dee-lighted!” and we’ve already got “Yuuuggge!”

    This is what a fully formed and confident male personality does — he invigorates those around him, young and old… My God, he’s 70 with a 10-year-old kid. Politics right down to each of the states is not going to be the same after this guy is through… For the first time in my life, with politics, I just can’t wait to see what comes next. This is going to be one for the Ages no matter what happens.

    We’ve got a genuine American Original on our hands. It’s as if P.T. Barnum were reincarnated as Machiavelli masquerading as Teddy Roosevelt.

    What was Bette Davis’ line about fastening seat belts? We’re going to be pushed and pulled and swung from high to low and from riches to ruin and back again in four short years. We bought the ticket, and all we can do now is hang on tight and go along for the ride of our lives. Savor every minute of it because it only comes along once in a lifetime if you’re lucky, like Halley’s comet. It’s going to be fun to be an American again.

  22. May we have peace on this Veterans day.
    Thank you all the men and women who had the courage to put the uniform on to protect their lands, our way of life, and family, this great nation owes you the very best we can do in respect for your service and the ultimate sacrifice so many gave and continue to give this day.

  23. My guess is Trump is a fixer, I just done see him meddling into the social issues swamp, other than putting a holt on some of the crazier things and persecution of Americans for not falling in line with the agenda.
    That’s my hope anyway.
    But I assure, I will not pull my pants down in public and sh#t on his poster…
    No, ai won’t do that…

    According to Ed Rendell “Brooklyn” wasn’t interested in going after the white vote…

    Of course not. The Obama-ites were running the campaign with Soros apparatchiks filling in the cracks. It was Obama 2008 all over again and it backfired. The best part is that Obama set up his own downfall. He remade the Dem Party in his own image and it is dead. The biggest loser is Obama not the Clintons’ who were out of gas anyway. Obama’s entire legacy is gone and he isn’t even out of office.

    **************************************

    Felix and Trumpster friends…

    …frankly now that the rallys are over…I hope Donald will create something where he routinely speaks directly to the American people in his conversational style and personally keeps his line of communication to us open and keeps us posted…and when he is running into blockades comes to the American people and spills the beans on the insider game that is screwing things up

    maybe like Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt did with their bully pulpit and fireside chats, except fast forward into the 21st century…

    I think it will benefit Donald to stay closely connected to his “movement” and people…and he can also take time where necessary to try to win over the ones that remain in the dark…

  26. Hillary and O…and the MEDIA…need to address these protestors…their protestors…

    first of all many of them are the same paid protestors and Anarchists that travel from one riot to the next…Soros is backing and paying many of them…the Dems need to take responsibility for their anarchy…Harry Reid of course is stoking the flames…

    if someone is hurt or worse killed…and more and more property is destroyed…the Dims…Hillary supporters, O, Soros, the media will be blamed for encouraging this terrible and dangerous behavior AND VIOLENCE…they are blocking major highways in LA, defacing historic monuments, etc…these people have no respect for others or our country…

    they just want to raise hell and destroy things…and beat people up…you even have some of the young women talking about “People will be killed”

    the irony is they want to use Donald Trump as an EXCUSE TO VENT THEIR OWN HATE AND RACIAL PREJUDICE…you don’t walk around with a sign that says “Love Trumps Hate…and then talk about killing someone and how much you hate others…

    yes there are some “kids” who are “afraid”…how could they not be when you have CNN and MSNBC telling them 24/7 that the world is coming to an end and to be afraid…very afraid…

    if the kids are afraid you don’t go on CNN and act hysterical, you calmly talk to these kids and explain this is our government, everything is going to be fine, etc

    but no…there is Van Jones…once again screaming “Whitelash!!” things are going to get so bad…bla, bla, bla…O’Donnell on MSNBC, Juan Williams on FOX…frankly I am very disappointed in Juan…he is over the top with freaking out…

    and honestly I am so disappointed in some of the former Big Pinkers who once seemed so rational and now they are so over the deep end…the immature and hateful things they say are so over the top and ridiculous…and again, immature…they have tunnel vision in a dark, dark tunnel…

    *****************

    the Dems are doing themselves no good or favors if they think supporting these protestors is a way to bring themselves back into power…

    …all you have to do is look at the signs these “scared kids” are carrying and to hear what they are saying to know that there is explicit REVERSE RACISM going on…and these crowds hate white people and are actively talking about ‘assassination’

    if the Dems have any last shred of respect for the white working class this is no way to entice most of us back for any support…YOU, the Dims and your protestors…SCARE US…

    we are innocent and never did anything to you…so don’t blame and threaten us…

    Donald Trump is talking about unity…bringing people together, helping the inner cities, helping minorities…give the man a chance and some time…

  27. gonzotx I agree with you. I really don’t think Trump is going to wade into the Roe vs Wade swampland. I see him as middle of the road and not getting into those kind of social issues that are huge hot button. Ain’t going to happen

  28. Trump is hiring, he has that posted publicly on his Transition website.

    Admin, I think you need to apply for some role. He needs all brilliant minds on deck and we know yours is the most astute!

  29. Trump did have major Evangelical backing with with something like 87% and Graham was relentless in supporting him when he needed it the most.
    There will be some payback.

  30. Thanks Admin for your insightful posts. Longtime lurker since 2008. Became Independent after DNCRules committee theft in 2008. I was livid having been a Dem my whole life. Worked my heart out for many campaigns and Hillary too. Now happy Trump won to stop this insanity! Viva les deplorables!!!

    I’m still confused about popular vote. Has all votes been tallied. Thought there’s something like 1-2 million not tallied yet from 3 states.

  31. I live and work in the heart of Hillary land and its unbelievable the barrage of hate directed toward Trump and the anger toward those of us who support him. They are so poorly informed. Friendships and work relationships are being severed by them and their intolerance.
    At this point I just say that this was a change election and on the issues, I believe Trump is right. Elections have consequences and after 16 years of living with 2 presidents I despised, now the other half of America will just have to deal with it.

    I do believe the hate speech spread by the democrats and media, freely tossing around words like, Nazi, racist etc. are dangerous and harmful to our society.

  32. I fear for Trump’s safety and I’m shocked by the blind loyalty to the crappy Obama and the corrupt Hillary.

  33. The key word for the last 3 days is “gracious”; Hillary was gracious with her concession speech, Trump was gracious in his victory speech, Obama was gracious in his transition speech, etc. The meeting between the incoming and outgoing presidents normally takes 15 minutes; this one took 90 minutes and the traditional photo op with the wives was cancelled. Anybody have any speculations on what really went on at that meeting? Must have been delicious. I was kind of hoping that Trump would be set up with one of those Project Veritas minicams in his belt so that we could all see and hear.

  34. For those who want to make some quick cash, I’ve heard that there is a real need for grief counselors at colleges and universities all over the country, in order to console all of the students whose lives have been thrown into turmoil by this election. The training should be easy: “You lost! Deal with it! That’ll be $150, please!”

  35. Not sure that Trump has really destroyed Big Media. He certainly embarrassed them momentarily by forcing them to admit that all of their predictions were wrong; however, there have been no admissions of skewing all of the coverage to favor Hillary, of colluding with the Clinton campaign, and no letup of Trump trashing. Maybe their advertising revenues will dry up at some point due to poor ratings as more people get their information from the internet and social media?

    The latest narrative is that Trump must make concessions for the sake of uniting the country and forget about all those crazy campaign promises he made. Whenever Democrats win elections, Republicans must make concessions because they lost. Whenever Republicans win anything, Republicans must make concessions to bring the country together. Heads I win, tails you lose.

    Muslim, Democrat Woman Voted For Trump — Silences CNN Host With Her Explanation For Why She Did It [VI

    Asra Nomani is a Muslim, liberal-leaning woman who voted for Donald Trump in the presidential election, and on Friday she explained to CNN’s Carol Costello why she did it.

    WATCH:

    Nomani, a former reporter for the Wall Street Journal and co-founder of the Muslim Reform Movement, explained to Costello that Trump is casting light on problems America is ignoring “for the sake of political correctness.”

    “What I know is that we have today a very real and serious threat by extremist Muslims,” she stated. “This is a reality that we haven’t confronted directly for the sake of political correctness, and if people would hear out the concerns and fears that others have about the issues to refugees and extremists, I think we could find a path that’s in the middle.”

    ***************************************

    why do these ill informed Democrats not listen to MUSLIM WOMEN??

    You have brave Muslim women who come forward and put themselves at risk, and the democrats ignore them…

    no wonder the Democratic party is in tatters…just heard an analysis that said it hasn’t been this bad since the 1920’s

    O destroyed the party…the Dems are pissed…they say they spent the last four years getting the Dem party ready for Hillary’s run to win…and she lost and finished them off…

    they are so out of touch with normal, regular, hard working people from all walks in life…white, black, muslim, men, women, hispanic

    they just don’t get it…all they want to do is identity politics and divide and conquer and keep minorities dependent on them and their hate for the opposition…

  37. MacArthur Causeway is closed in Miami due to Anti-Trump protestors…

    cars are backed up for miles and miles in Friday night traffic because the Macarthur Causeway is CLOSED because of protestors

    It is one GIGANTIC MESS…these people are freaking idiots

    if there was an emergency now or someone had to get to a hospital they would not be able to because of the jerks…

    spouting Love trumps hate idiots…no wonder the Democrats were demolished

  38. S,

    I think Trump will continue to let this go on (as he should) while letting Obama and the remains of the Democratic party lengthen the rope which will ultimately hang them all.

  39. We angered many people when we wrote Hillary2016 was the dumbest, stupidest, campaign we have ever seen. We know Bill Clinton thought the same thing. A lot of people thought the same thing but we were the only ones that issued the warning. In particular, Joel Benenson and the rest of the Obama loyalists Hillary hired are to blame. The Obama loyalists cared more about Obama than Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton was too stupid to figure that out. Hillary Clinton deserved to lose. Hillary2016, dumbest campaign ever:

    DNC Staff: Arrogance Cost Clinton the Election
    The Democratic National Committee is raging against the Hillary Clinton campaign machine.

    On Thursday, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, held a conference call with devastated staffers that put the rosiest possible frame on a calamitous picture.

    The message to the dozens of mostly young, sleep-deprived and shell-shocked aides: We did everything we could have. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. You should still be proud.

    Inside the Democratic National Committee headquarters, which sits half a mile south of the U.S. Capitol, eyes rolled and heads shook in frustration and disbelief.

    Clinton’s loss at the hands of Donald Trump amounted to the most surprising outcome in the history of modern electoral politics. Of course things could’ve been done differently. And ignoring that fact wasn’t going to make the searing defeat any easier.

    “We are pissed at them and state parties are pissed at them because they lost due to arrogance,” a top DNC staffer tells U.S. News, sharing the candid sentiment suffusing the high levels of the committee in exchange for anonymity.

    It’s no surprise that the hierarchy of the Clinton campaign leadership was insular and self-assured. But DNC staffers say the team’s presumptuous, know-it-all attitude caused it to ignore early warning signs of electoral trouble inside the states, and demoralized DNC staff who felt largely marginalized or altogether neglected for most of the campaign.

    There is always some level of tension between the sprawling bureaucracy of the party committee and the nominee’s campaign apparatus. But in the wake of Clinton’s loss, when intraparty finger-pointing is inevitable, some DNC staffers describe the relationship between the two entities as uniquely ineffectual, even after the displacement of unpopular chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. And they attribute it to one fundamental reason: Clinton’s campaign leaders always thought they knew best. The DNC was to do what it was told: Essentially, be seen and not heard.

    On election night, DNC number crunchers’ first saw signs of trouble when tallies from Virginia began to roll in. Here was a state the Clinton camp expected to carry by nearly 10 points, and the early returns showed that wasn’t going to happen. She won it by 5, but the slimmer-than-expected margin made DNC staffers nervous, especially because they had warned the Clinton camp not to pull staff and resources from there. The campaign did anyway, slashing its advertising investment in August. Sure, they survived inside the commonwealth, but inside the DNC, the late call of Virginia for Clinton was a distressing warning of things to come.

    If their projected margin in Virginia was cut in half, where else was their forecast wrong?

    Florida was always expected to be a slog. But a shiver went down the DNC’s collective spine when a call came in from Scott Arceneaux, executive director of the Florida Democratic Party, saying, “We’ve got a problem.”

    The Clinton campaign was exceeding President Barack Obama’s margins in Democratic counties near Miami. But everything north and west of that showed signs of trouble. Trump’s margins outside South Florida shocked Democrats, in that he outperformed 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

    “It turns out this was not a turnout problem for Clinton,” one Democratic strategist says. “This was a turnout dream for Trump.”

    Taking deep breaths at the DNC, staffers attempted to calm themselves by noting Clinton didn’t have to have Florida, while Trump did. Still, the night was moving in the wrong direction.

    The staggering moment top DNC staff knew it was over for Clinton was not due to a presidential call, but a down-ballot contest. It was 11:22 p.m. Eastern time when The Associated Press projected the Wisconsin Senate race, a seat deemed a safe pickup for Democrats for most of the year.

    Instead, first-term incumbent Ron Johnson had not only survived, he won with a more than 3-point margin over Democratic challenger Russ Feingold.

    That’s the moment we knew it was over,” the DNC source says.

    Kory Kozloski, executive director of the Wisconsin Democratic Party, had phoned DNC Chief Operating Officer Lindsey Reynolds to assure her, “Don’t worry, we’ll be your firewall.”

    But when Feingold fell, Reynolds became exasperated, blurting out an expletive, according to a source.

    “Really, f—–? Where’s our firewall now?” she said.

    Clinton’s high command – led by Podesta, campaign manager Robby Mook and director of state campaigns Marlon Marshall – knew it was over before midnight Tuesday, even though Wisconsin wasn’t called for Trump by The Associated Press until 2:30 a.m. Eastern time and Clinton wouldn’t concede until shortly thereafter.

    They released astounded staff from their positions at campaign headquarters in Brooklyn to head over to the Javits Convention Center at 11:55 p.m. In a sense, they were sending them to the mourning site with the rest of Clinton’s hard-core supporters.

    Back at DNC headquarters, staffers were equally as depressed, but they also became angry, reeling through times they were not valued or downright insulted.

    There was the time a state party executive director asked to speak directly to Marshall, and a reply came back from a junior staffer that the state party member wasn’t senior enough to merit that level of interaction.

    There were the numerous pleas from state party leaders to get Clinton to specific states – like Michigan – earlier, and to devote more resources to state party operations, which provide the oil and expertise to get out the vote.

    “But it was all about analytics with them,” the DNC source says. “They were too reliant on analytics and not enough on instinct and human intel from the ground.”

    And there were the multiple factions of power swirling around Clinton: from Huma Abedin, her longtime aide, to Mook and Marshall, whom sources say lost some of Clinton’s trust through the grueling primary with Sen. Bernie Sanders, to older Clinton hands like Minyon Moore and Charlie Baker.

    Adam Parkhomenko, the DNC’s national field director and a co-founder of the Ready for Hillary super PAC, served as a helpful intermediary between these different groups of aides and the DNC. But on many days, even near the end of the campaign, it was difficult to get a read on who held the real power with the candidate.

    The Clinton campaign was still scheduled to hold a “thank you” party for staffers in Brooklyn on Friday. DNC staffers were invited, but not many were expected to attend. The DNC communications director and multiple Clinton campaign officials did not respond to requests for comment.

    It wasn’t arrogance. It was stupidity. Hillary Clinton above all was the stupidest as she ignored Bill Clinton.

    Donald J. Trump listened to the people and did not need polls to tell him what to think or say. Hillary Clinton and her band of dummies relied on “analytics”. Hillary2016 needed “analytics” to tell them what to think, say, do. The first four letters in analytics are “ANAL”.

  40. WBBOEI – would you send me an email at AGUA61atExede.net? I am aware of someone who could avoid reinventing the wheel with regard to work you’ve previously done.
    Thanks,

  41. Mike Marks, Donald J. Trump destroyed Big Media. Read the article we wrote in 2007 called Big Media Party.

    It’s taken since 2007 until today for many to realize what we mean by Big Media and the Big Media Party. Leftish Michael Wolfe of the Big Media outlet and snob center Conde Nast, wrote this today in the Hollywood Reporter:

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/michael-wolff-trump-win-exposes-medias-smug-failures-945733?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=THR%20Breaking%20News_now_2016-11-09%2010:28:43_ehayden&utm_term=hollywoodreporter_breakingnews

    Ads don’t work, polls don’t work, celebrities don’t work, media endorsements don’t work and ground games don’t work.

    The media turned itself into the opposition and, accordingly, was voted down as the new political reality emerged: Ads don’t work, polls don’t work, celebrities don’t work, media endorsements don’t work, ground games don’t work.

    Not only did the media get almost everything about this presidential election wrong, but it became the central issue, or the stand-in for all those issues, that the great new American Trump Party voted against.

    The transmutation of political identities has arguably devolved into two parties: the Trump one, the angry retro people, and the Media Party, representing the smug modern people, each anathema to and uncomprehending of the other. Certainly, there was no moment in the campaign where the Media Party did not see itself as a virtuous and, most often, determinative factor in the race. Given this, the chants of “CNN sucks” at Trump rallies should not have been entirely surprising.

    But they were. The media took this as a comment about press freedom rather than its own failure to read the zeitgeist. In fact, it largely failed to tell any story other than its own.

    New Yorker editor David Remnick, as good a representative of media virtue as anybody, before he went to bed last night took a moment to throw off a thousand words or so on the death of the republic, rather than to express much interest — awe might have been in order — at the enormity and meaning of what had happened. Truly, really, a new voice had spoken — but in a pitch so high and a language so obscure that none of us in the media picked it up.

    Every anchor and commentator on network and cable news last night underwent a visible transformation from self-satisfied and jolly certainty to wandering in the wilderness. In a situation that only had two possible outcomes, nobody was even able to pretend they had contemplated both. Say this for Brian Williams’ old-fashioned anchor visage, it at least kept him from looking like an astonished fool live on MSNBC. Hang me on the same hook: I woke up this morning to a string of emails from various of the illiterate boobs who had over the past year felt compelled to tell me why they hated Hillary Clinton and about the intensity of their desire to elect Donald Trump. To each, I had said “fat chance.” Now all said, rightly, “I told you so.”

    It all washed away. Beyonce. The tax returns. The theoretical blue wall. Trump as sexual predator. Putin. His shambolic debate performances. Hispanics. Indeed, every aspect of the media narrative, dust. This narrative not only did not diminish him, it fortified him. The criticism of Trump defined the people who were criticizing him, reliably giving the counter-puncher something to punch. It was a juicy target. The Media Party not only fashioned the takedown narrative and demanded a special sort of allegiance to it — Twitter serving as the orthodoxy echo chamber — but, suspending most ordinary conflict rules, according to the Center for Public Integrity, gave lots of cash to Hillary. The media turned itself into the opposition and, accordingly, was voted down.

    It was a failure to understand the power of the currents running for Trump — a failure of intelligence, experience and objectivity, on particularly excruciating display last night in Buzzfeed’s live video feed with its cast of moronic, what-me-worry millennials having their first go at election night and now eager to take over the media.

    And it was a failure of modern journalistic technique too. It was the day the data died. All of the money poured by a financially challenged media industry into polls and polling analysis was for naught. It profoundly misinformed. It created a compelling and powerful narrative that was the opposite of what was actually happening. There may be few instances, except perhaps under authoritarian regimes, where the media has so successfully propounded a view of events not only of its own making but at such odds with reality. Trump is a simple proof: forget polls — they say what you want them to say.

    And then there was the wholesale destruction of what is perhaps the most important media assumption: that advertising matters. A not inconsiderable portion of the profitability of most media companies comes from the extra many billions of dollars that’s poured into local television every four years. Clinton spent the usual quota (buying, for instance, almost 80 percent of the more than 120,000 campaigns ads during the general election in Florida), Trump only a fraction thereof, redefining not only how to run for office, but the symbiotic relationship of the media to politics.

    The irony is too painful: Trump the media candidate turns on the media. The flat-footed media became for the nimble Trump his punching bag and foil (while all the time the media assumed Trump was the flat-footed one). It gave him his singular, galvanizing and personalized issue — it’s the media, stupid. If Trump makes good on his promise to oppose the Time Warner and AT&T merger, that will be an indication that his war with the media, once his most reliable alley, will go on.

    Perhaps another strategy for the media future is to just create a channel that pretends that Hillary and liberal certainties have won — rather similar to the pretend and certainty that got us to where we are now.

    The enormity of what happened Tuesday night/Wednesday morning is still not measurable. It is vast and beyond description. The Big Media party has been destroyed as has Big Media. They don’t know it yet and will try to resurrect themselves. But to us there is no doubt that Donald J. Trump stabbed the stake into the heart of the Big Media vampire.

  42. Admin…this is what I kept reporting…you could feel it in Broward, I think Donald did even better that the 30% they said…because Broward cheats…and even got caught cheating tuesday

    The Clinton campaign was exceeding President Barack Obama’s margins in Democratic counties near Miami. But everything north and west of that showed signs of trouble. Trump’s margins outside South Florida shocked Democrats, in that he outperformed 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney

    *************************************

    imho…Hillary just expected to win…she believed she had it in the bag…the media protected her…helped her…tipped her off…gave her debate questions…let her write their articles…she was always smug…always acting aloof…always acting…and talking endlessly as if she was the smartest person in the room…very condescending…

    …and flat out…people just did not trust her…

    in the end…there was no there…there…

  43. I always felt Hillary never listen to Bill, that she went out of her way not to listen to him…Lucky Trump. Say what you will, Bill understands how to talk to people, Make them feel like they are being heard. Hillary went out of her way to marginalize him…Lucky Trump…
    I remember when Hillary got my support, when she was in that cafe, almost in tears speaking from her heart, after her lose in Iowa. She was real, it changed her campaign..we were with her then…now, I’m with him…

  44. The Purple Revolution?

    The Clintons and Soros launch America’s Purple Revolution

    Defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton is not about to «go quietly into that good night». On the morning after her surprising and unanticipated defeat at the hands of Republican Party upstart Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, entered the ball room of the art-deco New Yorker hotel in midtown Manhattan and were both adorned in purple attire. The press immediately noticed the color and asked what it represented. Clinton spokespeople claimed it was to represent the coming together of Democratic «Blue America» and Republican «Red America» into a united purple blend. This statement was a complete ruse as is known by citizens of countries targeted in the past by the vile political operations of international hedge fund tycoon George Soros.

    http://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2016/11/11/clintons-and-soros-launch-america-purple-revolution.html

  45. I just done see him meddling into the social issues swamp

    I feel pretty safe about Trump and social issues. And I’m not worried about Pence as VP. But should Pence become president at some point, I’d be rather concerned. He has expressed some seriously out there socially conservative views over his life.

    That’s the thing – I’m a Trumpster, but I’m not a republican (not a dem anymore either). So I was glad to see the map turn red in terms of the election because it meant Trump was winning, but all these comments I see around the net rejoicing about full conservatism coming back – I don’t relate at all to that, I don’t identify with that. And I’m not sure they’re going to get that with Trump.

    —–

    Fox is showing clips from a new (series?) called The Circus about the election – wow – finally the whole population will get to see his huge crowds, the camera is catching those views.

  46. They looked like clowns in those hidious outfits, and now their minions are behaving like crazed clowns.it will take a lifetime for the visual of the woman hanging on the post sh#tting on a Trump poster…
    This is on the Clintons, obamas, soros, and the media…
    Keep it up, your never going to get back in office.

  47. As far as the media, I think they’ve been shocked due to Trump’s winning. But I don’t think they are defeated, not unless they realize the need to start being objective journalists again. And that I don’t think has happened.

    And I can see that these people having breakdowns over Trump’s win were misled by the media, but really we need to start teaching people to look at both parties, both candidates, and make up their own minds. Living in a bubble doesn’t help anyone but the party. And somehow people have to learn that politicians are financed and then beholden to their donors, and media is no different with their small number of owners. All these people flipping out are reciting things that aren’t even true – he’s sexist, misogynistic, racist, he’s going to start WW III, etc etc etc. And of course Hillary is this wonderful pure person, because they found no need to investigate the wikileaks info or the O’Keefe videos. They’ve created their own little h*ll.

    But I do believe strongly that they need to be strong against these violent protestors. Pick ’em up, lock ’em up. We know this isn’t new. This is BLM, Soros AGAIN. Time to squash it, little snowflakes need to melt now.

  48. Fox is having commercials right now, but they’re going to interview Carol Burnett in a minute. She looks great!

  49. Hillary just expected to win…she believed she had it in the bag…the media protected her…helped her…tipped her off…gave her debate questions…let her write their articles…she was always smug…always acting aloof…always acting…

    S, and don’t forget how few rallies she had… she wasn’t trying very hard to “touch” the people…. it was mostly all rich fundraisers she had….

    I know Hillary is smart, but yes, she is also inconceivably STUPID, because how could you see the rallies Trump had, 2-3/day and at the end 5/day, with tens of thousands of people, and not get a clue? Incredible.

  51. Admin @ 8:01 PM

    Thanks for the reply.

    I agree that the effectiveness of BM in creating and promoting narratives has been destroyed. But there’s no indication so far that they plan to change their tactics and they’re still going to be collecting their million-dollar salaries for the foreseeable future. I think that I’m being a little impatient, after only 3 days, with regard to how this destruction is going to manifest itself (e.g. job losses, policy shakeups, funding and advertising losses, etc.). Maybe some tangible results will come before too much longer.

  52. Unlike others, I am thoroughly enjoying this meltdown by the left.

    Samuel Johnson* famously said nothing so fixates the mind as the imminent prospect of being hanged.

    To which I say, nothing so assures those who voted for Trump that they were right, as seeing hordes of left wing zombies marching through their neighborhood beating up white people, burning flags in effigy, defecating on camera, setting police cars on fire, and then hearing a CNN cocksucker like Christopher Cuomo, who creating this reaction by his incessant demonizing of Trump to his mentally challenged audience, say something pithy like this proves that Trump reach out to these people and be reasonable.

    And that IS the point: our schools have become so politicized that they promote a single vision for the next generation, namely that the in the world there are only two groups, i.e. the oppressors and the oppressed. White men are always the oppressors (unless they are part of the elites, who are 85% white men). Black men can never be oppressors. Even if they commit cold blooded murder they are innocent because society made them do it. People of color and unmarried women are always the victims in their little morality play.

    Big media then repeats that myth, and the promote it over the television 24/7, while blacking out all contrary evidence. In essence, big media is responsible for the riots, the burnings, the beating, and the looting. They are like the Fred McMurray character in The Caine Mutiny, who pushes to crew to mutiny and then refuses to take responsibility for the mutiny. In a word, they are cowards–and worse.

  53. Bill Mitchell is one of the sharpest minds on politics.

    On election night he had 80 million viewers.

    When the initial predictions showed all states turning blue including Texas, he reassured them that these were preliminary and Trump would ultimately win, which of course he did.

    I commend to you this video.

  54. Paul Ryan is not going to be Speaker. He doesn’t have the votes in his conference. Many, MANY Republican Congressmen were told get rid of him by their constituents. If they don’t they are next. It is all about his disloyalty, insults and disrespect to the primary and caucus voters. Global Paul didn’t think of that. His pathetic and anxious enthusiasm for Trump at the 12th hour, AFTER THE FACT of the election is not fooling anyone. He has votes for the Speakership but not enough to win. He is out and if he thinks Trump is going to interfere in inside baseball in the House he is crazy. Trump will return the favor of “not endorsing” anyone for the Speakership. Cruz will also not have a Senate seat as TWO well known Congressmen are raising money to challenge him in 2018. A globalist ass with questionable US citizenship will not represent Texas. He won’t be appointed dogcatcher either by Trump. And no Goldman Sachs minions on the Supreme Court as he couldn’t be fired. Please. The NeverTrumpers and Democrats trying to talk up and inveigle their idiots into permanent government slots is desperate.

    Trump should stay out of Obama’s last problem. Specifically the mental breakdown following the realization that the gravy train is ending for the “community organizers”. They thought the federal tax funds would flow forever to their causes, scams, policies, and grand theft. The national Ponzi. Taxes have been used as a payroll for full employment of the activists, policy makers (think Gruber), refugee and illegal migrant mobs hous’ers and feeders, civil rights lawyers, health insurance bureaucrats, lousy tech companies creating non-functional websites and security with endless budgets and endless connections, huge state budgets dependent on fed dollars, the list is endless. All of that crying, depression, psychic pain is about the money. Jeff Sessions plan is “cut the money off”. Expect an audit. All good organizations do audits. Sanctuary cities will be gone overnight when they have to pay their own bills for the criminals from their local tax base. Paying for your own virtue signaling is not so fun. The same for states who offer services, freebies, and privileges to illegals. Pay for it your damned self then let’s talk.

    I have never seen a bunch of grifters shift gears so fast as the Clintons. They immediately went into cover your ass and bribe machine protection mode. They really think the stink is over or they are just trying to brazen it out. I am not sure they even slowed down. They want Chelsea to be a congress woman? To keep on selling favors and access? How is she going to do that when she is in jail for security fraud with her goober husband? And she was pretty flip with state secrets acts so no security clearance for her. So what is she going to sell? Her charming personality?

    The crying, marching, cussing and bitching, little furious cogs with hopes and dreams of being a lobbyist, foundation stooge, warm body for community organizing, media star reading out John and Tony Podesta written, edited or approved agit-prop just fell off the wheel. All of those “do-nothing but show up” mafia style jobs. These are their jobs goddamnit! Gone! O-M-G! Your owe me! You mean they aren’t going to work in deBlasio’s office of undocumented Muslim outreach! Or have a salary for studying the effect of mentally ill homeless people pissing on cement with uric acid buildup causing building foundation failure! Or the EPA or DOJ as they weasel up the ladder. Where is the money for their past services? This was the undertone of the screaming ninny (who could only think of we’re all gonna die with global warming/cooling) in the DNC meeting that Brazil-nut lost control of. They are figuring out they got stiffed. Ward bosses and patronage passer-outers Obama and Clinton are no more. I keep hearing rumors that one of Trump’s sons is working on civil service “reform” which of course is a kill shot for the “slow children zone” of the elite. They are going to have to buy them a Dairy Queen franchise to keep them busy instead of foisting them off on taxpayers.

    Progs, Dems, GOPe, globalists are very good at creating language and rationalizations about how this will be the end of humanity. No. Humanity will be fine. They need to start looking for alternate forms of income. Like a real job. Or selling their plasma. Trump broke the “consultant class” of Republicans by not using, needing or paying them. Rove is still furious as his scam is no longer operable. By the way Hillary’s bestest in the entire history of the world “GOTV” operation in fact got out Trump voters. It’s true. Talk about idiots. Under budget and ahead of time is the new mission statement of the US government. And this is why the stock market didn’t crash as foretold by the smartest people who ever lived. Always wrong. Lucky Trump.

    If you look at the comments on the woman shitting video you posted, you would note that the legitimacy is reasonably challenged. I do not think the thing should be dignified by repetitive mention.

  56. All the talking heads on the boob tube are spinning and blowing smoke at an unprecedented rate. They absolutely do not get Trump and their speculations about what he will do appears to be their wish list, more than anything.

    What is a talking head without a narrative?

    Seething liberals vow revolution in Democratic Party http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/305617-seething-liberals-vow-revolution-in-democratic-party

    The radical Dems always say this stuff. Their claims that Bernie would have won are loony. That is just talk for “self comfort”. The Democratic Party is now a regional party that has shrunk in every election since 2010 in Congress, Senate, state houses and state legislatures. It is now a regional “mini-party” stuck in a few cities, Hispanic California and the two coasts. Obama remade it in his own image and with the repudiation of all Obama things it is now basically nothing. The fighting is over a carcass. Tiny nobodies are fighting for the last gasp as leadership. Expect Dems to start retiring or switching parties in the next year or two. This is organizational collapse.

    ******************

    Right On!

  63. If we are going to do any tinkering with the electoral college, then my inclination would be to go the other way.

    Bill Mitchell extols the electoral college, because if we went strictly by the popular vote, a few major cities would have determined not only the results of our elections, but the dominant paradigm in those big cities, which is race baiting and corruption run riot. The entire county would be run not by the morals of the political marketplace, but by the morals of Tamany Hall, which would be easy for the Soroses and their ilk—meaning Goldman et al to manipulate.

    When I say go the other way, then I do like how Maine does it, which is they allocate the electoral votes of the particular state by county. This would make the system even more responsive to the will of the people. This would cure the terrible problem we have in Washington, where I have lived, for longer than just about anybody, and watched political control be wrested from us, the natives. Today, Washington is a red state, with a blue hole in it, covering three counties, the main one being King County. In that county, and in our city, we have one of the worst municipal governments in this country, and a single newspaper that represents the worst of what big media has to offer. And we have two of the lowest IQ senators, and a moribund Republican Party. When there is no competition for power, and a bought off media, which is demonstrably the case with the Seattle Times, then insiders feel no heat and they are free to run the show for their own benefit, in terms of money and power. It cannot be otherwise.

    In the case of Washington, an allocation of electoral votes by country would not cure the cancer we see with the politics of King County. All it would do is prevent the cancer from spreading. And that in and of itself would be a plus.

    Breaking News from Canada

    The flood of Trump-fearing American liberals sneaking across the border into
    Canada has intensified beginning early this morning.
    Trump’s victory is prompting an exodus among left-leaning Americans who
    fear they’ll soon be required to hunt, pray, pay taxes, and live according to the Constitution.

    Canadian border residents say it’s not uncommon to see dozens of
    sociology professors, liberal arts majors, global-warming activists,
    and “green” energy proponents crossing their fields at night.

    “I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood
    producer huddled in the barn,” said southern Manitoba farmer Red
    Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota. “He was cold,
    exhausted and hungry, and begged me for a latte and some free-range
    chicken.

    In an effort to stop the illegal aliens, Greenfield erected higher
    fences, but the liberals scaled them. He then installed loudspeakers
    that blared Rush Limbaugh across the fields, but they just stuck their
    fingers in their ears and kept coming. Officials are particularly
    concerned about smugglers who meet liberals just south of the border,
    pack them into electric cars, and drive them across the border, where
    they are simply left to fend for themselves after the battery dies.

    “A lot of these people are not prepared for our rugged conditions,” an
    Alberta border patrolman said. “I found one carload without a single
    bottle of Perrier water, or any gemelli with shrimp and arugula. All
    they had was a little Napa Valley cabernet and some kale chips.
    When liberals are caught, they’re sent back across the border, often
    wailing that they fear persecution from Trump high-hairers.

    Rumors are circulating about plans being made to build re-education
    camps where liberals will be forced to drink domestic beer, study the
    Constitution, and find jobs that actually contribute to the economy.

    Canadian citizens have complained that the illegal immigrants are
    creating an organic-broccoli shortage, are buying up all the Barbara
    Streisand CD’s, and are overloading the internet while downloading
    jazzercise apps to their cell phones.

    “I really feel sorry for American liberals, but the Canadian economy
    just can’t support them,” an Ottawa resident said. “After all, how
    many art-history majors does one country need?”

  67. The above is my wording, but Stefan’s twitter was the source of the idea.

    It being the tactic of the Alinsky and the Frankfurt school of politics to bring down the system by using its own rules against them, in this case the protections afforded by the first amendment.

    Rule 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)–Saul Alinsky.

  70. Hi Admin!

    Like kodachrome, I am also a longtime lurker, since 2008, and ditched the Democrats after the Rules & Bylaws Committee met, in May 08, to register ‘Unaffiliated.’ I’m pretty apathetic about Trump, but very hopeful and ready to give him a chance. That said, I celebrate Hillary’s loss and the Democratic Party implosion. It’s delicious! And, I thoroughly enjoyed reading through the election night thread comments, here — what a hoot to see you guys realize that Trump was going to do what everyone said was impossible.

    Also, I wanted to remind everyone that if Hillary does wind up with the plurality/popular vote — poisonous, toxic Obama ruined that gripe for Democrats, too.

    Remember, Hillary won 300,000 more votes than Obama, in 2008, and nary a fuss was made by the party over that.

    It’s like that hypocritical, cheating lump, Donna Brazile said, “”My momma taught me to play by the rules and respect those rules. My mother taught me, and I’m sure your mother taught you, that when you decide to change the rules, middle of the game, end of the game, that is referred to as cheating.”

    Congrats to everyone!

  71. http://www.cnbc.com/2016/11/10/the-anti-trump-protesters-are-making-a-huge-mistake-commentary.html

    The anti-Trump protesters are making a huge mistake

    The protests that erupted in several major cities after the election of Donald Trump as president were certainly expected. But Democrats, racial minorities, gays and lesbians, or conservative “Never Trumpers” who decide to continue to demonize Trump like these protesters are making a big and self-destructive mistake.

    The reason is simple: Trump is not a career politician with positions set in stone. Like anyone just getting into the political world, Trump’s positions on a number of policies have evolved ever since he began his campaign in 2015. Writing him off as a typical conservative, liberal or any other label is foolish. There has simply never been a president-elect more likely to change his mind on the issues, because he hasn’t yet made up his mind on so many of those issues.

    Nowhere is that more evident than it is with social issues. Wednesday night’s protests were dominated by chants accusing Trump of being racist, sexist, and a homophobe. But are we really supposed to believe that a man who’s been a very public playboy in the Manhattan social scene for 30-plus years is some kind of social conservative? Does anyone think Trump believes he has a mandate to roll back abortion laws, repeal gay marriage, or wipe out affirmative action?

    Based on everything Trump said in rally after rally, especially down the stretch of the campaign, social issues are barely on his or his staff’s radar. And when it is, it’s not exactly regressive. Remember that, during his Republican convention acceptance speech, he called for gay rights and made a dramatic point of pausing to acknowledge to crowd’s accompanying applause.

    Contrast that with some of the leaders of the business community. Many of them are either staying silent or reaching out to Trump despite not supporting him in the election. The most stark example of this kind of wiser move comes from Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. Bezos, who also owns a controlling interest in the Washington Post, became a target for Trump’s ire earlier this year after the newspaper began a steady stream of critical items about Trump on its news and editorial pages. Trump responded by saying Amazon might be a monopoly that should be broken up, and that he was considering suing the Post for libel. Who knows how Bezos reacted to Trump’s election late Tuesday night, but publicly Bezos is extending an olive branch with this tweet Wednesday:

    “Congratulations to @realDonaldTrump. I for one give him my most open mind and wish him great success in his service to the country.”

    But that’s not all. Just look at what some of Trump’s sharpest political detractors are doing now. Senator Bernie Sanders issued a statement acknowledging that Trump has tapped into legitimate frustrations over “establishment economics and establishment politics.” And he promised to work with Trump to fix that. SenatorElizabeth Warren has made similar comments, saying she will put aside her differences with Trump to, “rebuild our economy for working people.” Sanders and Warren still peppered those conciliatory comments with sharp threats to oppose Trump on social issues, but they did not make that the sum total of their statements.

    The anti-Trump protesters offer no such common ground. For them, it’s all gloom and doom in all of its flag-burning, civil disobedience glory.

    Instead, I would recommend simply asking him for the support for the cause or right you are fighting for. With his track record, you never know! He just may support it. In any case, that just seems like a more logical move at this point than making him an enemy before you even give him a chance to be an ally.

    Hillary has a responsibility to talk to the protestors…she is the one that spent the last month of her campaign essentially bashing Trump…instead of talking about what she would do…she went around asking people “if they could imagine waking up and finding out Donald Trump was President”

    She is responsible for creating this meme of “basket full of deplorables…deplorables that are sexist, racist, on and on…Hillary has brainwashed her supporters and done them a great injustice and told them a BIG LIE…

    Donald will surprise them all…but it is sad that Hillary has a lot to do with why the protestors are in the streets night after night…She misled them…

  72. Hillary and obama want the protests, the discpurse, the violence.
    They and Bernie need to come out and speak to its minions, but mostly they need to expose Soros.

    We know that’s not going to happen. They are trying to blackmail Trump to not prosecute them.
    Beware the hidden dragon as the Lion will not be fooled by these punks.

  73. http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/peter-thiel-joins-trumps-presidential-transition-team/ar-AAkbDGT

    snip

    Thiel, 49, has publicly decried foreign wars, high debt and inefficient spending on defense, trade, health care and student debt. People familiar with the discussions of his role in a Trump administration say government waste will be one issue he will certainly put as a top priority for the president-elect.

    In his quest to slice government spending, Thiel may seek to overhaul government procurement policies. Narrow requirements shaped by incumbent contractors, lengthy timelines and expensive compliance measures have all been frustrating for startups seeking to do business with Uncle Sam.

    A change could be good for a range of technology companies, including his own. It would also bolster a 22-year-old law that was litigated for the first time last month when Palantir Technologies Inc., which he co-founded, won its lawsuit against the U.S Army and secured the right to compete for a software contract potentially worth billions of dollars.

    Despite Thiel’s tech credentials — he also co-founded PayPal and now backs around 200 startups through his Founders Fund and Mithril Capital — he has not made the industry’s agenda his own.

    Thiel’s support of Trump often drew scorn in left-leaning Silicon Valley and in some cases killed business deals. Trump’s position on restricting immigration and comments about women and minorities were especially repugnant to the tech community, which relies heavily on foreign-born workers and has made diversity a major priority in recent years.

    Although Thiel called Trump’s comments about women “clearly offensive and inappropriate,” he has remained silent about immigration and other policy issues worrying Silicon Valley including net neutrality and cash repatriation by larger tech companies with overseas accounts.

    Thiel is traveling outside the country, which has delayed formalizing his role in the transition team. He couldn’t be reached for comment for this story; a Thiel spokesman declined to comment. Representatives from Trump’s campaign weren’t immediately available to comment.

  74. Are they done counting the popular vote yet?

    Seriously, I cannot believe that Hillary won it or that they were even close…

  75. Bill Mitchell is tweeting the Democrat Party is stupid. He thinks their answer to “they’ll fix it” is that they’ll probably decide to go even further left. Wouldn’t surprise me.

  76. TO: ADMIN, FELLOW COMMENTORS
    RE. POLITICAL ARMAGEDDON

    IT ISN’T OFTEN THAT I HAVE ANYTHING REALLY IMPORTANT TO SAY. BUT NOW, IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE TRUMP VICTORY AND THE RIOTING IN THE STREETS AND THE MELTDOWN OF BIG MEDIA, AND–BE STILL MY HEART– CREDULOUS THREATS FROM NO LESS OF A PERSONAGE THAN CHER TO VANISH FROM OUR MIDST, WHICH IS CERTAIN TO PRODUCE A TRAIL OF TEARS THAT WILL MAKE THE TRAGIC RETREAT OF THE NEZ PERCE TRIBE SEEM LIKE A WALK IN THE PARK, PERHAPS NOW WE CAN ACHIEVE CLARITY AND ALIGNMENT AS A SOCIETY AS TO WHERE THE REAL THREAT TO OUR FUTURE RESIDES.

    SIMPLY PUT, THE PROBLEM IS CULTURAL MARXISM, WHICH IS THE PROGENITOR OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, RADICAL ISLAM, RADICAL FEMINISM, ACTING OUT, POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, AND AL THE OTHER SYMPTOMS. THIS IS A POLITICAL THEORY WHICH CREATED BY THE FRANFURT SCHOOL BETWEEN THE WARS, BOOKED PASSAGE TO THIS COUNTRY AFTER THE SECOND WORLD WAR, AND BEGAN WHAT GRAMSCI DESCRIBED AS IT LONG MARCH THROUGH THE INSTITUTIONS INCLUDING ACADEMIA AND THE MEDIA. IT HAS AS IT GOAL THE DESTRUCTION OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION, AND THERE IS NO LIVING WITH IT IF YOU VALUE LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.

    THAT GLOBALIST MONSTERS LIKE SOROS, SCHMIDT, BEZOS, BUFFETT, ET. AL. HAVE GLOMMED ONTO THIS DOCTRINE IS HARDLY SURPRISING. THEY FAVOR A GLOBAL GOVERNMENT TO PRESIDE OVER A GLOBAL MARKETPLACE WHICH THEY CAN CONTROL, AS PART OF A GLOBAL RULING CLASS. THIS IS OF COURSE, YET ANOTHER MANIFESTATION OF THE DREAM OF ALL TYRANTS, NAMELY, AN EMPIRE ON WHICH THE SUN NEVER SETS. OSWALD SPENGLER WHO WROTE A LARGELY FORGOTTEN BOOK CALLED “THE DECLINE OF THE WEST” NOTED THAT THERE IS NO LEFT WING REVOLUTION OF RECORD THAT WAS NOT FINANCED BY THE BANKERS, AND SURELY THIS ONE IS NO EXCEPTION.

    HERE IS A FINE ARTICLE ON THE SUBJECT OF CULTURAL MARXISM–THE DESTROYER OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION AND THE ONE WAY TICKET TO AN ORWELLIAN FUTURE FOR A POSTERITY WHO, AS THE GEORGE BERNARD SHAW APTLY PUT IT, “HAS NO VOTE”, AT THE TIME THE IMPROVIDENT DECISIONS ARE MADE WHICH CONDEMN THEIR FUTURE.
    ——————–

    America today is dominated by a system of beliefs, attitudes and values that we have come to know as “Political Correctness.” For many it is an annoyance and a self parodying joke. But Political Correctness is deadly serious in its aims, seeking to impose a uniformity of thought and behavior on all Americans. It is therefore totalitarian in nature. Its roots lie in a version of Marxism which sees culture, rather than the economy, as the site of class struggle.

    Under Marxist economic theory, the oppressed workers were supposed to be the beneficiaries of a social revolution that would place them on top of the power structure. When these revolutionary opportunities presented themselves, however, the workers did not respond. The Marxist revolutionaries did not blame their theory for these failures; instead they blamed the “ruling class,” which had bought off the workers by giving them “rights,” and had blinded them with a “false consciousness” that led them to support national governments and liberal democracy.

    One group of Marxist intellectuals resolved this apparent contradiction of Marxist theory by an analysis that focused on society’s cultural “superstructure” rather than on the economic “base” as Marx did. The Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci and Hungarian Marxist Georg Lukacs contributed the most to this new cultural Marxism.

    Among Marxists, Gramsci is noted for his theory that cultural hegemony is the means to class dominance. In his view, a new “Communist man” had to be created through a changed culture before any political revolution was possible. This led to a focus on the efforts of intellectuals in the fields of education and media.

    Georg Lukacs believed that for a new Marxist culture to emerge, the existing culture must be destroyed. He said, “I saw the revolutionary destruction of society as the one and only solution to the cultural contradictions of the epoch…. Such a worldwide overturning of values cannot take place without the annihilation of the old values and the creation of new ones by the revolutionaries.”

    In 1923, Lukacs and other Marxist intellectuals associated with the Communist Party of Germany founded the Institute of Social Research at Frankfurt University in Frankfurt, Germany. The Institute, which became known as the Frankfurt School, was modeled after the Marx-Engels Institute in Moscow. In 1933, when Nazis came to power in Germany, the members of the Frankfurt School fled. Most came to the United States and many became influential in American universities. The Frankfurt School’s studies combined Marxist analysis with Freudian psychoanalysis to form the basis of what became known as “Critical Theory.”

    Critical Theory was essentially destructive criticism of the main elements of Western culture, including Christianity, capitalism, authority, the family, patriarchy, hierarchy, morality, tradition, sexual restraint, loyalty, patriotism, nationalism, heredity, ethnocentrism, convention and conservatism.

    Critical Theorists recognized that traditional beliefs and the existing social structure would have to be destroyed and then replaced with a “new thinking” that would become as much a part of elementary consciousness as the old one had been. Their theories took hold in the tumultuous 1960s, when the Vietnam War opened a Pandora’s Box of reevaluaton and revolution. The student radicals of the era were strongly influenced by revolutionary ideas, among them those of Herbert Marcuse, a member of the Frankfurt School who preach the “Great Refusal,” a rejection of all basic Western concepts and an embrace of sexual liberation, and the merits of feminist and black revolutions. His primary thesis was that university students, ghetto blacks, the alienated, the asocial, and the Third World could take the place of the proletariat in the coming Communist revolution.

    Marcuse may be the most important member of the Frankfurt School in terms of the origins of Political Correctness, because he was the critical link to the counterculture of the 1960s. His objective was clear: “One can rightfully speak of a cultural revolution, since the protest is directed toward the whole cultural establishment, including morality of existing society.”

    When addressing the general public, contemporary advocates of Political Correctness – or Cultural Marxism, as it might just as easily be called – present their beliefs with appealing simplicity as merely a commitment to being “sensitive” to other people and embracing values such as “tolerance” and “diversity.”

    The reality is different. Political Correctness is the use of culture as a sharp weapon to enforce new norms and to stigmatize those who dissent from the new dispensation; to stigmatize those who insist on values that will impede the new “PC” regime: free speech and free and objective intellectual inquiry.

  77. California gave hillary like +3 million votes…

    Thank God for the electoral college and our founding fathers.

    Are they done counting the popular vote yet?

    Seriously, I cannot believe that Hillary won it or that they were even close…
    ———
    My understanding is Trump has won the popular vote.

  79. Catching up on some tv I taped earlier this week
    Watching ‘dancing with the stars’ …and ALL the commercials were extremely negative on Trump from Hillary

    She wasted so much money going so negative on him…and nothing positive about herself

    Money that she could have used in blue states that turned red…

    I think all her negativity backfired and turned people off…they hit mute because of the overkill

    And now her people are in the streets repeating these lies and negativity

    Hillary really knows how to divide people

  80. Democracy for America has petition to End the Electoral College. Ten states and the District of Columbia have already adopted the National Popular Vote plan representing 165 electoral votes. Seeking 105 more electoral votes (for a total of 270 votes), for their plan to take effect. They reckon it would not require a constitutional amendment. Do you think that would be the case?

  81. Robert de Niro, the voice of . . ., is depressed Depressed DEPRESSED that Trump one.

    To assuage his grief, he has given a green light to the domestic terrorists to engage in violence and destruction.

    Nice job, you fucking untalented celebrity bimbo.

    I have a better cure for your grief–

    A lethal dose of cyanide.

    In depression cases like yours, the success rate is 100%.

  82. “Beware Of The Shadow Government”: Ron Paul Warns President-Elect Trump

    There are powers bigger than just the president, and as SHTFPlan.com’s Mac Slavo writes, Trump is under a lot of pressure right now to take advice from people who represent the deepest and darkest interests at work in foreign policy. America will be undergo a tremendous test in the next term, as terrorism, war, a divided population and the global economy all threaten to explode on his watch, leaving the situation open to exploit by the advisors and appointees of the Deep State, and the secret societies that create and steer world affairs.

    After decades as a billionaire businessman, Trump is finally playing ball in the big leagues, and that means some very serious characters at work in and around his office of power.

    If Trump thinks he’s now the big boss, he’d better be very careful and watch his back. History has a lot to say about JFK’s assassination – because it concerns his attempt to oust the shadow powers from his administration.
