The Vastness Of The Trump Revolution Is Immeasurable

Consider this article the latest in our long running series “Mistake In ’08” or proof that we have been so absolutely brilliant in our long running “Situation Comedy” series of analysis. Herein we discuss the 10 year plan that failed again, the 40 year plan that failed again, the cremation of the Democratic Party, the Clinton coalition renamed the Trump coalition, and assorted disasters inflicted by President-elect Donald J. Trump’s Revolution upon his enemies.

* * * * * *

Archimedes postulated that if he had a lever long enough and firm ground underneath he could move the world. In that spirit we note that if we had a measuring tape that could circumnavigate the political world it would fall short of measuring the immeasurable Trump triumph of 2016.

Those demonstrations and riots against the presidential election which resulted in President-elect Donald J. Trump? Excellent, most excellent. Those demonstrations are the death rattle of the Obamas choking in their own feces.

To try to measure the Obama catastrophe, the Mistake in ’08, we begin with the very premise of the Obama destruction of the Democratic Party in 2008. Recall that Obama and the Obamaroids rejected the FDR coalition and the updates to that coalition implemented by JFK and Bill Clinton. The new Obama coalition was “the coalition of the ascendant” which we declared to be nothing but a cult of personality.

There is no doubt now that we were right about “the coalition of the ascendant” being a “creative class” cult of personality for a tin plated wannabee “transformational” flim-flam man. The proof? The elections of 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016. In the election years 2008 and 2012 the Obama cult successfully elected their tin plated object of worship. But that cult, that “coalition of the ascendant” was not transferable and in 2009, 2010!!!, 2014!!!, and 2016 without Obama explicitly on the ballot, the cult of the ascendant failed.

Remember what that “coalition of the ascendant” was? We explained it and the disasters for the Democratic Party that would result back in 2008’s Barack Obama’s Situation Comedy. That new coalition for the Democratic Party was blacks, young white liberals, enough Latinos, and the gentry class in the suburbs protected by wealth and class from their foolish choices.

We explained it all in “The Shield Maiden Of Chappaqua”:

For years we explained (see, “Mistake In ’08” Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, Part VI, Part VII, and Part VIII, and the “Barack Obama Situation Comedy” Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV) that to build and grow a political party you first gather a core constituency then slowly grow the party by the addition of like-minded individuals and groups which share those interests of the core constituency.

The modern Democratic Party built by Franklin Delano Roosevelt had as a core constituency the white working class. This working class provided the party of FDR with guideposts on policy and guided the party in everything it did. The working class core of the party was white because it reflected the same characteristics as the general population.

Over the years groups were added to the FDR coalition. Senior citizens joined in on the coalition attracted by promises such as “Social Security”. In the 1960s John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a Boston Brahmin added black Americans into the Democratic Party fold with some deft politicking (and his father’s vast wealth) which smudged away the racist past of the party. JFK grew the Democratic Party by addition not subtraction.

In 2008, Barack Obama and assorted kooks decided to purposefully destroy the Democratic Party of FDR. Barack Obama and these kooks willfully embraced the idea of the new “coalition of the ascendant”. This “coalition of the ascendant” and their interests – which conflicted with the interests of the FDR coalition – made it necessary to kick out core Democratic Party constituencies such as senior citizens and the white working class.

The Barack Obama coalition slogan was a variation of the race riot 1960s slogan “burn, baby, burn”.

By the time of our last installment of “Mistake In ’08” we fearlessly declared:

What happened in 2008 is not a question of historical interpretation. The “mistake in ’08” is the defining question for 2016.

Now the question[s] has been answered. The Mistake In ’08 is the greatest political miscalculation in American history that led to the destruction of the world’s oldest political party and the ascension of the new Trump Republican Party. That Hillary2016 did not read and absorb the lessons we wrote about, particularly in that last Mistake In ’08 article is why Hillary2016 failed and why Hillary Clinton deserved to lose.

In our first “Mistake In ’08” article we wrote:

The selection of Barack Obama is an historical mistake which will continue to unravel the Dimocratic Party for generations. Only now are honest Democrats beginning to assess the damage done. “Mistake In ’08” is the first installment in a multi-part series which will detail how big a mistake was self-inflicted by Democrats in 2008.

The consequences of that “Mistake In ’08” are many, as we now begin to describe.

* * * * * *

The 10 year plan. In our first “Mistake In ’08” article we discussed “the 10 year plan”:

What was that 10-year plan?

The six letter word is “census”. “The Census is the count of the US population conducted every ten years mandated by the Constitution. Redistricting is the process of drawing political borders to reflect changes in population.” Post-census redistricting was the Democratic 10 year plan which Obama has already effectively destroyed. 10 years of planning gone in a puff of smoke.

The 10 year plan for 2010, as we predicted in 2009, was destroyed by Barack Obama. In 2010 an entire generation of Democrats was beheaded and Republicans won a massive victory. This meant the Republicans would determine the redistricted lines for congressional districts after the 2010 census. The Republicans redistricted and ensured a Republican House of Representatives for the foreseeable future.

The next census will be in 2020 and already we can safely predict more Republican victories and another failure for the Dimocrats 10 year plan.

By the way, did we mention that white millennials voted for Donald J. Trump?:

This comes as evidence mounts that US millennials are more likely to identify as conservative than either Generation Xers or Baby Boomers were at the same age. [snip]

Trump’s level of support amongst white college-educated voters and white female voters was also unexpected.

CNN’s data put the Republican candidate ahead by 10 points among white women (among black women he was 90 points behind). Trump also polled 15 points ahead of Clinton among white male college graduates.

Trump also gained vast margins among white voters without college degrees.

In other words, as we wrote in October of 2015, Donald J. Trump walked away with the winning “Clinton Coalition” which Hillary Clinton stupidly discarded in favor of the Obama kookdom:

As we predicted long before conventional wisdom caught up to us this past weekend – Yes, Donald Trump looks to be the Republican nominee for president in 2016. [snip]

The white working class should have been the bedrock of Hillary2016. The white working class support for Hillary Clinton in 2008 provided grand victories of 40 point margins when Hillary was most wounded. Now Hillary2016 has repeatedly abandoned those voters. [snip]

The bedrock of a winning coalition, the people Barack Obama dismissed in 2008 as “bitter” and clinging to their guns and Bibles, used to be the FDR coalition and the Clinton coalition. No longer. They are now part of the Trump Triumph. Hillary2016 has abandoned them so they have abandoned her. [snip]

In 2008 Hillary Clinton survived and thrived because she marched alongside the white working class. Now, the white working class is marching with Donald J. Trump – towards victory.

The real ascendant are ascendant for Trump. And therein lies the most catastrophic consequences for Barack Obama, the Clintons, Big Media, and the Dimocrats/Democrats.

Remember our argument that the FDR coalition which JFK and Bill Clinton built upon was the winning coalition? There is another aspect of the FDR victories which Democrats have dreamed of recreating. Think of it as a 40 year plan which led to the “Mistake In ’08” and other disasters. James Carville outlined the modest 40 year plan:

Now, no less a pundit than James Carville has stepped into the breach with his new book, 40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation, an extended boast that demographic trends, particularly the partisan preferences of young people, will ensure an era of Democratic dominance.

A Democratic majority is emerging,” Carville declares. “This majority will guarantee that the Democrats remain in power for the next forty years.

Carville admitted after the 2010 elections that the 40 years boast would not come to pass. The failures of 2009 and 2010 forced Carville to that admission. But that boast was not the real 40 year plan.

The real 40 year plan was that Democrats had to win in 2008 and thereby replicate the lasting victories of FDR. The Democrats thought if they gifted the nomination in 2008 to Barack Obama great things would happen. It was a “make Democrats great again” plan. The delusion was this: Barack Obama and the coalition of the ascendant would win in 2008 and soon there would be an economic revival such that Democrats would get all the credit. This would lead to 40 years of voters rewarding the Democratic Party with victory just as voters rewarded Democrats for 40 years after FDR – until it all came crashing down with the Republican takeover of the House of Representatives in 1994.

Of course, Barack Obama bungled the supposed economic recovery. In 2008 Obama inflicted his flim-flam stimulus and the deadly ObamaCare plans on the nation. Both such disasters that by the time they passed the nation revolted and rewarded Republicans.

The failed Obama economy of the first term did not sober up the Dimocrats. This time they were doubly sure of the 40 year plan. The thinking was “well, it didn’t work in 2008 but boy oh boy it will work in 2012 for sure by golly”. Again the notion was that in 2012 Barack Obama would win reelection and that would lead to a massive economic recovery and once again the Democrats would get the credit, as they got the credit for FDR, and that economic revival would lead to 40 years of voter rewards and endless power for Obama Dimocrats.

Now the 40 year plan works in favor of President-elect Donald J. Trump. If, as we suspect, President Donald J. Trump leads the nation to a great economic boom and lives up to “Make America Great Again” it will be President Donald J. Trump and the Republicans who will be rewarded for generations by the voters.

Already we see the road is clear for a massive generations-long Republican victory under the banner of President Donald J. Trump. How? The Dimocrats in 2016 knew they had to, had to, win the Senate. That’s because in 2018 there will be 25 Dimocrats up for reelection, many in Republican states, while only eight Republicans, mostly in red states, will be up for reelection.

So many endangered Dimocrats will make it easy for President Donald J. Trump to force his will on them. We expect Donald J. Trump Republicans will win at least 13 of those Senate seats in 2018 and build a super majority in the Senate that will last a very long time. In the House, the Republicans will redistrict after President Donald J. Trump is reelected and thereby keep their majorities for generations. The Supreme Court appointments by President Donald J. Trump will mean conservative majorities for generations as well.

The Obama controlled Dimocratic Party response to this catastrophic series of easily predictable events? A Muslim left wing loon to run the Obama Dimocrat Party.

The temper tantrum loons in the streets protesting the election of Donald J. Trump and those losers who can’t go to work or take exams because they are so very distraught are on to something. Deep down they realize that they are lost for generations and that Barack Obama is the tin plated calf god that failed. What they don’t realize is that the more they protest the more they help President-elect Donald J. Trump by alienating the American voter. The lessons of the failures of the Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter loons are lessons lost on these latest loons and kooks.

President-elect Donald J. Trump has accomplished many great victories already. President Donald J. Trump’s victories are so many, so immeasurable, even he might get tired of winning.

  1. Another Trump hater now pretending to be a Trump supporter begins to slowly understand the magnitude of what happened:

    The Trump Revolution

    Donald Trump’s election as the forty-fifth president of the United States is the most significant political event to happen in my lifetime. In some respects Trump’s victory is more remarkable than Ronald Reagan’s in 1980, eight months before I was born. Reagan, also a former Democrat, was a two-term governor of California who had been active in public life since traveling the country for General Electric in the 1950s. Trump has never held office, never been in the military, and if anything faced more resistance than Reagan did from Hollywood, D.C., New York, and academia. None of that stopped Trump from winning more Electoral College votes than any Republican since George H.W. Bush in 1988. Moreover, for at least two years Trump will have something Reagan never did—a Republican Congress. [snip]

    Winning candidates also have core base of support that sticks with them throughout their presidencies. Reagan had the conservative movement, Bill Clinton had soccer moms, George W. Bush had the religious right, Barack Obama had African-American voters, and president-elect Trump has the white working class. The degree of support he enjoys from this group is extraordinary. Whereas Mitt Romney won white voters without college degrees by 26 points, Trump won them by 41. “Mr. Obama had carried rural Monroe County, in Ohio’s coal belt, by 8 points in 2012,” writes Laura Meckler of the Wall Street Journal. “Mr. Trump won it this year by 47. Pennsylvania’s blue-collar Luzerne County, home to Wilkes-Barre, had backed Mr. Obama by 5 points. On Tuesday Mr. Trump won it by 19.”

    So convinced were Democrats and liberals that changing demographics guaranteed them victory in presidential elections that they ignored or undermined or provoked the very white working-class voters that made Trump president. President Obama’s final years in office have accelerated the realignment among white voters toward the Republican Party that has left the Democratic Party a smoking ruin. Democrats had 60 senators during Obama’s first year in office. Next year they will have 48. Democrats had 233 House seats during Obama’s first year. Next year they will have 192. “Where Democrats held 29 governorships when Obama was inaugurated, they can count only 15 in the wake of Tuesday’s election,” write Karen Tumulty, John Wagner, and Tom Hamburger of the Washington Post. “In 2017, Republicans could tie the record for controlling governorships, which is 34, set in 1922 when Warren Harding was president.” State legislatures are in worse shape.

    Clearly the platform of social liberalism, globalization, and appeals to race and ethnicity and sex is not as popular as we have been led to believe. In retrospect, it appears as though Barack Obama distorted our politics, and thus our political analysis, not only in the things he did but also in the nature of his appeal. [snip]

    When Democrats have campaigned on the Obama agenda without Obama as a candidate, they have failed.

    Trump has remade the Republican Party as well. Just as Barry Goldwater was the precursor to Ronald Reagan bringing conservatism to Washington, Sarah Palin and the Tea Party were the precursors to Donald Trump bringing populism to Washington. Reagan oversaw an administration comprised of conservatives and establishment Republicans, and Trump will oversee an administration comprised of populists and establishment Republicans. The difference is the establishment is more conservative than it was 30 years ago.

    And it will have to adapt. Trump, said Peter Thiel in an October speech at the National Press Club, “points to a new Republican Party beyond the dogmas of Reaganism. He points even beyond the remaking of one party to a new American politics that overcomes denial, rejects bubble thinking, and reckons with reality.” The relationship between the movement conservatives and Bush-Baker Republicans was often rocky during the Reagan presidency. So will the relationship between populists and Romney-Ryan Republicans during the Trump presidency. [snip]

    But if the wall is built, and factories return to Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, and elsewhere, and taxes are reduced and simplified, and Obamacare is replaced, none of that will matter. What this campaign result teaches is that the noise does not matter. More than 20 men and women ran for the presidency of the United States in 2016. Only Donald Trump remains.

    We wrote all that years ago. The election results only confirmed our analysis.

  2. Admin: you have been right not just on some things, on everything. And what you said eight years ago has now become consensus opinion. Frankfurter was wrong when he said we should not despair when wisdom comes late, because too often it never comes at all. That pithy comment however, comes with this caveat. If wisdom comes too late, it may not matter. For of all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these it might have been–if they had only listened. It is all the more remarkable for you to have offered that kind of tough love to your party, when every swinging dick that called themselves a democrat was enthralled with the messiah. Fighting group think is a thankless task, and often the only curtain calls you receive are the ones you gave yourself. If the self professed cognescenti were to acknowledge them now, would require them to admit that they were wrong, ab inition. That takes a level of honesty which is a feat beyond the compass of ordinary minds. Extraordinary minds however do give credit where credit is due, knowing that the only way we can survive in a dangerous world is to learn from our mistakes, and that means listening to those who got it right, when getting it right was not in fashion. Those are the heroes. The rest are just camp followers–like Chris Cuomo, and his ilk.

  3. But that cult, that “coalition of the ascendant” was not transferable and in 2009, 2010!!!, 2014!!!, and 2016 without Obama explicitly on the ballot, the cult of the ascendant failed.

    Yes! Although, if presidents were allowed to run for a 3rd term, I don’t think that ‘Obamaism’ would have transferred over to Obama himself against Trump. As admin has repeatedly said, we needed change.

    Now we have change and hope. Goodbye Obama.

  4. President Donald J. Trump’s victories are so many, so immeasurable, even he might get tired of winning.

    lol another great ending line!

  5. We toss around the word progressive, never knowing quite what it means. Like Gaul, it is divided into three parts:

    1. Globalism: a professed concern for global problems, which is used to mask an ambition for global wealth and power by the new elites. Soros claim of global warming to justify a carbon tax and the creation of a green energy exchange is a paradigmatic example.

    2. Cultural Marxism: which adopts the Marxist dialetic but substitutes the fiction of racial oppression for the reality of economic oppression. To acknowledge that the oppression is economic would lead to an indictment of Goldman, Gates, et. al. In addition, it would leave intact those subordinate institutions on which civil society is based, which the globalists must destroy along the way.

    3. Crony capitalism: the erection of entry barriers, the creation of monopoly, and the division of economic spoils among the few, not the many.

  6. Admin: when I read your comments I thought about something George Kennan said.

    “I hope to share with those who are now in power something of what I see in looking at the world today through the lens of history, so they may pursue those paths which lead to a promising future, and avoid pursuing, and dragging the rest of us, down those paths which lead only to despair and from which no one ever returns.”

  7. I travelled into Savannah, GA earlier today and witnessed a group of about 200 or so protesting Donald Trump’s victory. Their protest march was about a block long, and occurred on a sidewalk. They were mostly young people. It was lame.

  8. admin
    November 12, 2016 at 7:15 pm
    That is his fuck you to his prior employer, MSNBC.

    The Young Turk predicted Trump would win a couple months ago.

    He is fed up, as we all are, with corporate controlled media, which is Nazi media, not free Media.

    My only regret is we did not have ly’n Brian Williams there to call the plays.

    The have morose–totally fucking morose, slummed shouldered head hanging nerd Charlie Rose there as a mourner.

    But no one can mourn like a lone coyote in a cold desert under an harvest moon, like Ly’n Brian.

    God, I miss him.

  9. The other revolution spinning about:

    Seething liberals vow revolution in Democratic Party

    The Republican civil war was supposed to start this week.

    Instead, a ferocious struggle has erupted on the left over the smoldering remains of the Democratic Party.

    Liberals are seething over the election and talking about launching a Tea Party-style revolt. They say it’s the only way to keep Washington Democrats connected to the grassroots and to avoid a repeat of the 2016 electoral disaster, which blindsided party elites.

    Progressives believe the Democratic establishment is responsible for inflicting Donald Trump upon the nation, blaming a staid corporate wing of the party for nominating Hillary Clinton and ignoring the Working Class voters that propelled Trump to victory.

    Liberals interviewed by The Hill want to see establishment Democrats targeted in primaries, and the “Clinton-corporate wing” of the party rooted out for good.

    The fight will begin over picking a new leader for the Democratic National Committee.

    Progressives are itching to see the national apparatus reduced to rubble and rebuilt from scratch, with one of their own installed at the top.

    And there is talk among some progressives, like Bill Clinton’s former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, about splitting from the Democratic Party entirely if they don’t get the changes they seek.

    The Democratic Party can no longer be the same, it has been repudiated,” Reich said on a conference call with members from the progressive grassroots group Democracy for America.

    This has been a huge refutation of establishment politics and the political organization has got to be changed…if the Democratic Party can’t do it, we’ll do it through a third party.”

    Reich’s view is far from universal in his party.

    A number of Democrats are fuming over pie-in-the-sky liberals who they say prized idealism over pragmatism.

    In an election determined by enthusiasm, some blame Bernie Sanders supporters for either not showing up or for suppressing turnout by refusing to rally behind Clinton at an earlier date.

    The Sanders people should be mad at themselves,” said one well-connected Democratic strategist. “If they had come out to vote, Donald Trump wouldn’t be president. If they were trying to prove a point, all they’ve done is further damage everything they claim to be fighting for. It’s somewhat typical of that crowd.”

    Sanders supporters reject that reading.

    Jacob Limon, the Texas director for the Sanders campaign, said he voted for Clinton and followed Sanders’ lead in rallying liberals to get to the polls for the Democratic nominee.

    Progressives showed up,” Limon said, noting that the election in Texas was closer than it has been in 20 years. The problem, he said, was Clinton’s trustworthiness.

    Regardless, the left feels ascendant, with the party’s biggest stars – Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren – carrying a mantle that even some Clinton allies acknowledge is more inline with the zeitgeist.

    One thing for sure is that the Democratic Party will lean more on Bernie than Hillary going forward,” said David Goodfriend, a Clinton supporter and former Bill Clinton administration official.

    To some liberals, that means a wholesale purging of the “corporate dominated” wing of the party.

    They’ll hold on to the party mechanisms until you rip it out of their dying hands,” said Jonathan Tasini, a Sanders surrogate. “It’s all about power and money and influence for them.”

    The first fight over the party’s future will play out in the race for DNC chairman.

    Sanders has endorsed Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) – a Muslim and a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus – to be the new DNC chief.

    For many liberals, nothing less than a wholesale gutting of that institution will do.

    Everybody in the building needs to be fired immediately,” Cenk Uygur, the host of the progressive political commentary show The Young Turks, told The Hill.

    After that, progressives are eyeing the 2018 midterm elections — and potential primaries for lawmakers they believe are gumming-up the works — as the next big fight.

    It’s a strategy Sanders has endorsed and his supporters are eager to take up.

    “We have to install the playbook of the Tea Party,” said Ohio state lawmaker Nina Turner, a Sanders surrogate. “The Tea Party had mainstream Republicans shaking in their boots. Even the ones that hung on knew they had to listen to what the grassroots was saying. Obviously, we don’t want to govern anything like the Tea Party, but from a tactical standpoint, we have to run and support progressive candidates to keep the establishment honest.”

    That burgeoning fight is already frustrating some Washington Democrats, who are fearful that the left will hold them to the kind of rigid ideological purity tests that were once the domain of the right.

    That would be counter-productive, said Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.).

    “I love [Sanders],” he said. “But I think his objective is very different from the objective of the Democratic Party as a whole…I think he tried to help, I think he did everything he could. But he cannot help if he’s starting off from the wrong principle. And the wrong principle [is]: The enemy of the good is the perfect.”

    There are some areas of agreement among Democrats.

    The party suffered a rout in the Rust Belt and Midwest states, as Working Class white voters abandoned them for Trump.

    The Hill reached former Sen. Ken Salazar (D-Colo.), who was in charge of Clinton’s White House transition team, as he packed up to leave Washington and return to his farm in Southern Colorado.

    “There were people who felt left out of he economy over the last eight years who were never able to get back on their feet, blue collar men and women,” Salazar said. “Donald Trump was able to capture them in terms of emotion and sentiment.”

    Democrats have not done very well in rural America and I don’t understand why that has happened. The broader question is how to have a Democratic Party that can attract those working men and women.”

    It’s kook on kook violence. There are no sane people left in the asylum to guard the inmates. The Dimwits are hating on themselves. Hate trumps love among the ruins.

    Division and a circular firing squad. It’s great news for Trump. Trump keeps winning. Trump’s wins are immeasurable. Trump’s wins are just beginning. Wait until the DNC meets to elect a new chair in January. Can’t wait for the Trumptastic inaugural.

  10. Bryan did some pensive poses for a photographer.

    He was wearing a Saville row jacket and matching jeans.

    Ann Wintour published them in her magazine for her elite audience.

    They were titled The New James Bond.

    For some reason, they did not sell.

    That was a second setback in a meteoric career.

    He dealt with it in the style to which he is accustomed.

    One martini shaken not stirred.

    And donating those photos to the Smithsonian.

    They are all true.

    But fine journalist that he is he could never reveal a source.

  11. Seething liberals vow revolution in Democratic Party
    Success has many fathers.

    But failure is an orphan.

    Does their “tea party” include Wall Street.

    As the “Great Deceiver” in the Man from La Mancha pointed out the the errant knight:

    To launch a revolution, one must have the means.

    Titling windmills is much easier.

  12. Their theme song would look like this:

    And, by the way Admin. what you said in 2008–that Obama would destroy the democrat policy is now conventional wisdom as well.

  13. First of all, I want to thank from the bottom of my heart and this entire community of brilliant,astute commentators and political observers. I have been a avid fan since 2008 when I watched in horror the democratic party implode forever.

    This blog has been my lifeline to sanity, as I am practically at Ground Zero in Hillaryland, and have had to hide deep cover. No one must ever know or I would be a complete professional and personal pariah. I have voted Repub for the first time everin 2008, left the democrats after what they did to Hillary who back then was a decent candidate. What happened? Never to return and am now a absolutely huge Trump fan. What a freakin genius that man is, I have never seen anything like it! I am so happy now. Before it had been so difficult, but I am still sort of sad that my entire personal and professional relationships would call me nasty names, racist, bigot, etc. if they knew metro political leanings. I know these things are not true, i am not these things, but I don’t believe in open borders, and I don’t believe in the Community Reinvestment Act. i don’t want drug dealing housing projects in my town, and that was next on the Obama Agenda. i don’t believe in Agenda 21. and I don’t believe in a Globalist New World Order run by Obama, Merkel, Hillary and the UN. So there you go. I think these are reasonable beliefs, but most people are so uninformed they don’t even know what any of these things are. They go around yelling “racist! bigot! Stupidity! Sexist!” So there we are.

    So once again I will be in hiding. But that’s okay. Because I go to Hillaryis44 for sane levelheaded analysis. People are now terribly upset about the Trump win in schools because of the bullying in the schools they say is now going to happen to minorities. That indeed would be a shame, and I hope there is not much of that, my town is telling everyone to wear a safety pin, which I guess now means, “I’ve got your back you minority, and I won’t let anyone bully you.” i guess it’s a nice gesture. But I don’t know. It seems strange. And just a bit bizarre to me. I guess if that’s what they need to do to process…….

    I’m glad Trump won! I went to a Hillary Pantsuit Nation party Tuesday night to watch the election returns. I wore my new pantsuit, and I looked great because I’ve been sick and have lost weight and so I can fit into it. (I had it made last year but then gained ten pounds, so couldn’t wear it.) So I really just pretty much went to the Pantsuits Nation party to wear my new pantsuit! And it was at my dear friends’ house who always has great snacks and wine and has a beautiful tv sitting area. I could walk there, have a glass of wine and not have to drive home. I went in with my usual affable unassuming low key personal, nobody would ever guess i loathe Hillary and the democrats and Obama, it’s best for them to underestimate me. ( Because these women, though, my friends, and neighbors, are just beyond the pale far leftists even though they are extremely well off, and are very taken with their narrow-minded moral narcissism.) And I do have to live here, so I was prepared totally to watch Hillary win. And decided to be a good sport about it. I thought the system was totally rigged in her favor, and decided I would just be a mercenary survivor from now on, and not really care about politics. And then….little by little…..when North Caroline went Trump, I started to get some hope….and then when it took them awhile to get Virgina! I mean she should have locked up Virginia immediately….! I thought, hey, wait a minute here. We DO have a democracy! It’s NOT RIGGED! Oh God what a great night. Although I couldn’t appear too happy, and my poor dear friends, who i am fond of…they were just shocked beyond belief that this could happen. Apparently they actually watch the MSM. I stopped in 2008 after the appalling Obama/Hillary reporting. I realized then the media was lost forever. And found great blogs to really find out what was going. I ran home and then went to Hillaryis44 for the final call for Trump, because I don’t have a TV. What a thrill it was to see Admin’s post President Elect Trumpppppppp!!!!

    I’m sorry to have rambled so long. I hope I haven’t been too boring. But this community has meant so much to me. I won’t comment again in the future. I don’t have the chops that you all have. But I just wanted to say “thank you” to all of you. You have been so important to me these past eight years. Sincerely yours, Deep Cover


    Thank God it’s Trump. Now Republicans and Democrats will both have to change

    Just how great a revolution in our politics this is—the election of a leader whose background totally unlike that of anyone else who has served as president—is just beginning to sink in.

    But the time was right: we had reached a dead end with Republicans and Democrats fighting set-piece battles with one another. The old ideologies had burned themselves out, and our leaders had lost touch with the people.

    Trump truly defeated not one but both of America’s political parties, and now Republicans and Democrats alike will have to change, to become more responsive to the country’s needs in the 21st century. It’s long overdue.

  15. Hey, I don’t like these lurkers coming out and going back away again. Stay and play! Or, as a first step, come out on holidays and say hi. You already took the first step. The second one is a lot easier!

  16. CNN lies 24/7 365! ‏@LuvLuchia 19h19 hours ago

    @errollouis also amazing to hear Dems complain about the Electoral College when they created, and use, a “Super Delegate” system #Hypocrites

  17. Hillary Clinton blamed FBI director James Comey for her stunning defeat in Tuesday’s presidential election in a conference call with her top campaign funders on Saturday, according to two participants who were on the call.

    Clinton was projected by nearly every national public opinion poll as the heavy favorite going into Tuesday’s race. Instead, Republican Donald Trump won the election, shocking many throughout the nation and prompting widespread protests.

    Clinton has kept a low profile since her defeat after delivering her concession speech on Wednesday morning.

    Clinton told her supporters on Saturday that her team had drafted a memo that looked at the changing opinion polls leading up to the election and that the letter from Comey proved to be a turning point. She said Comey’s decision to go public with the renewed examination of her email server had caused an erosion of support in the upper Midwest, according to three people familiar with the call.

    And silly me, I thought it was her keeping a private server in violation of the law, exposing top secret information to foreign spies, 16 time lying about it, hammering hard drives on 13 devices and bleech bitting all for good measure, that was the reason for her loss

    It was all Comey’s fault.

    But wait a minute. Time out. Is this the same Comey who found that she should not be indicted and after the Weiner treasure trove was revealed cleared her by reviewing 650, 000 emails in 8 days–that Comey?

    Oh, I get it. It was when he wrote a letter to Congress in between and said that the investigation was not closed at that point.

    I also made a statement back in 2008 about television not being a part of my life anymore back in 2008. I donated all 3 of my televisions to the Salvation Army, and stopped the service. It saved me a good chunk of change every month, and I did not have to put up with programming that I deemed propaganda. Sure, I miss things every now and then, but I don’t regret it. I hated the idea that my money was being used by media to subvert my beliefs through television progamming, either through the “unbiased” news 😂, or any other programming in which the programmers could inject their politics. I am much happier to have the Internet available to me than television. I have real freedom of choice on the internet! There is community on the Internet (such as Hillaryis44) not always found in my daily life, and this helps to keep me informed and reasonably sane. The admin on this site is a special person who knows his stuff, and thankfully expresses himself many times in comedic ways. Being informed and entertained here at the same time is a blessing.

    Hillary won’t take responsibility for anything! Her corruption and lying did her in. Her emails were just a symptom.

  20. For the past 4 days, I still occasionally bust out laughing when I think of Hillary losing this election. I haven’t felt this good during the past, long 8 years.

  21. I feel terrible for those people who feel terrible over the loss of their trophy candidate–someone they opposed in 2008.

    But I have a cure for them: hugs and drugs.

    With an emphasis on the latta.

    If that his not enough, we do have SWAT teams to help them over this difficult period in their life.

    One of the gentlemen in my building has orange hair and purple eyebrows, and, if I am not mistaken mascara.

    That poor chap is taking this election loss very hard.

    Then the Washington Huskies lost their football game.

    He is on suicide watch.

  22. What is it with this fucking Bill Maher.

    He could be easily mistaken for an ant eater–same profile.

    He donated $1 million to the Hillary campaign and lost.

    Now he is demanding an audience with Trump.

    And he expects Trump to drop what he is doing and spend an hour with that asshole?

    What chutzpah from this short man.

    What Maher needs is an audience with a dumpster.

  23. I am still trippin’ over Tuesday.

    I was a child when JFK was assassinated, but even then, I could feel that something monumentally awful had happened. I was brought up to believe my country was the land of opportunity, freedom and justice and did not want to believe those around me who said it was our enemy. I began to suspect, but knew it was true when George Dubya got elected. For 16 years I have felt like a hunted animal. Just a middle/working class American, moderate liberal. But my feelings were not wrong, we have been looted and oppressed by our own government. Paying our taxes to be spied on and manipulated and selling the country out from under us.

    Hillary Clinton needs to consider her opinion that a hacker who outed her should be drone assassinated when she looks at why she failed.

    Hillary Clinton should shut up about Comey if the rumors are true about her trip to Haiti after the earthquake.

    The behaviors of the establishment are absolutely degenerate, depraved and criminal. And she joined them, became full fledged, to get that nomination and support to run for POTUS.

    The struggle between good and evil is eternal. But it is so much better when good Trumps evil.

    I haven’t felt this good during the past, long 8 years.

    I enjoyed a three hour drive yesterday for a work day at my hunting camp. These are preseason maintenance days where the members cut brush to cover duck blinds, make repairs to the camp, etc.

    The drive was wonderful. The high for the day was about 63, with a nice breeze and striking clear, blue skies. Without the looming possibility of Obama in the background fucking something else up on a daily basis, I realized I hadn’t truly enjoyed such a carefree day in well over eight years. Probably more like 12. I commented to the Wife, before realizing why I felt so carefree, that it was just too perfect of a day – surely something is going to screw up. Nope, nothing did.

  25. Deep Cover and all the new voices, I will echo Lorac, Please stay. There is no need to lurk. The fun is only beginning.

  26. The thing with the Clintons in purple for her concession speech creeps me out. Black and purple. There are some saying purple is the color of the Uniparty (blue an red) that has been promoting the looting of the nation state for global rule.

    I guess the Clintons, Obamas and Bushes will be gathering in loosersville to plot some more madness with Sorfeld.

  27. Btw…in fairness…putting political news aside…there are some good to excellent shows on tv…some great writing…great set design…great costumes…and yes, great acting

    Personally I think Showtime has an interesting and good line up
    …network has some good shows…and talent shows…if you enjoy that
    …and then there is HGTV and sports

    So tv offers many choices… whatever floats someones boat…

  28. Hey deep cover!
    Like you I live in loony Liberal (strike that: progressive) land. I’ve been undercover since 2008. I work in academia and live in the trendy liberal part of my city. It’s been a long slog through their turgid smugness everyday and as a result I’ve mostly kept under the radar. Instead of voicing my opinions i just ask questions. The liberal fundraisers I attended would have a special toast to Obama. Every conversation was about evil republicans and the genteel Obama. There was no breaking through the single- mindedness. Even as my friends lost their healthcare coverage and forced into the exchange which they complained about but held out hope for a public option. I’ve worn down my teeth from clenching my mouth so much at work home and my social life. Like you, to reveal my true thoughts to others would have resulted in pariah-Dom.
    Anyways, you expressed my life and thanks to this astute community. After hearing Trumps illegal immigration speech, I knew he’d win. He allowed the pulse of the heartlands real economic concerns to flow. I secretly rooted for him.
    Now, I’m elated and feel hopeful for the first time in 16 years!
    A big thanks to ALL!!!!!!

  29. I have a big concern with regards to Donald Trump. I want him safe at all times. I hope that he has the best protection because he will need it. The loony left, and the untrustworthy right are capable of dastardly acts.

    There are millions of us, That feel like you do. 😀

  32. It’s too bad that Donald won’t be taking a salary as president. His task is monumental, and he should get a salary, in my opinion. It’s good optics, though.

  33. lorac

    November 13, 2016 at 11:36 am


    yes, Lorac…i forgot to mention TCM channel…they play all old movies…so interesting to watch and connect with a time gone by…when many of our parents were young…what life was like during their times…

    I also like to watch ‘the happy ending, sappy Hallmark movies’ right around this time of year…often have them on in the background while decorating home like a winter wonderland of peace and happy stuff…

  34. Donald should take the $400K salary and immediately donate it to the Vets or a children’s hospital…or some good effort to make things better…

  35. Hillary can wear purple everyday…she looked like she was in the Jokers outfit from Batman

    I meam really, it was so not grown up, and getting Bill to wear that hidious color too.

  36. I asked this question at the bottom of the last thread. Do you have an opinion? 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. Is that true?

  37. Ok folks. I’ve really enjoyed this week and have felt better than I have in years. However, it just pisses me off to no end that We/Trump didn’t get our “moment” on election night, celebrating this historic event. You would have thought the Second Coming had occurred when BO won.

    Also, while this violence just proves the level of anti-democracy in this country, it’s just more distraction for the Silent Majority and our yuge win.

    Wish someone would just send out some water cannons and clear these assholes away.

    Just venting.

  38. RemVem – I have no idea. You say some states have adopted it, but it seems like if something is in the constitution, wouldn’t it need an amendment to change it…? To get an amendment, you need so many states agreeing, as I recall – because the ERA didn’t get enough states to become an amendment.

    I think it will pass. People have been upset about the electoral college before. These people just think they’re special, their pain is special, their choice to believe falsities and get themselves all worked up is special… they’re just special and deserve to get their way…. well, I guess they’re learn now that you don’t get an award for participating… or destroying….

  39. Oh, yes, S, I love TCM, too. My favorites are the 30s, and so many of those were upbeat, everyone seemed rich with no job, they helped the depression era people live vicariously and escape from reality for a while…. Cary Grant is my favorite 🙂 and I loved Carole Lombard, but unfortunately she died too soon to have near as many movies as he has out there…

  40. Yes, Lorac, thanks for reminding me about the ERA. I shouls have thought of that! With so many of the State legislatures currently under Republican control the Electoral College is not likely to be undone in the foreseeable future.

  41. Outris…

    these protestors need to take a look in the mirror…they are behaving just as they attack Trump for being…they are projecting their hate on to other people…

    for the anti-trump protestors…HATE TRUMPS LOVE…they are full of reactionary anger, they have been told many lies, Hillary spent the last month of her campaign telling them Donald was the evil devil “unfit for office”… and on the day before the election she suddenly remembers to talk about “unity”

    frankly she left them shell shocked…and their heads filled with negative thoughts, revenge and hate…hate towards Trump and his supporters…the basket of deplorables she created…and pounded into their heads…

    dark tunnel vision of hate towards Trump and us who they are now making “the other” that they are always complaining they are being made out to be

    …Wouldn’t it be wonderful if instead of blocking freeways and destroying buildings and punching people out…they took a deep breath and listened to what he has to say in these upcoming early days…

    could it be that Donald is going to do many things they actually want and would be happy with but because of all their noise they are not listening and can’t hear the good news

    plus…Donald planning on deporting criminals and gang bangers…shouldn’t that make people feel safer…or do they support the drug dealers that poision their families with heroin, etc

    protestors…just chill out and open your listening ears…maybe your assumptions are all wrong…don’t forget Donald is a moderate and in the past considered a Democrat…

    He is not an extremist…Donald is the closest we will ever get to an Independent as President of the USA in our lifetime…

    time to check the emotions and allow logic to resurface…

    Trump Trumps Love…!!

  43. Thank you everyone for your welcome! One of the things about Hilaryis44 is not only the brilliant and incomparable Admin, I mean, wow Admin, Just Wow! But the commentators here are also really really smart. I go to other blogs, and the original article author is quite often quiet smart and cogent, but then the commentators are just awful, just blech. But at Hillaryis44 the commenters really know their stuff. And so, I just don’t have the political chops everyone here has. It’s like Admin has Serious Quality Control over who comments, and that has made this an absolutely stellar blog.

    However, I so appreciate your kind words, and if I’ve made the grade, well, I’m flattered!!!!!

    My thoughts on Hillary’s purple concession speech outfit. I think perhaps it was her acceptance speech outfit. I think she had it made because she was going to give a speech about how we are all Purple Americans, not Red America or Blue America. A sort of unity outfit that only her tin ear would think would be effective. But then she lost, and just looked sort of odd wearing her purple outfit. And no one really understood it.

  44. btw…one of those “frightened protestors” is in a photo on the internet with a sign that says “Rape Melania” as he stands in front of Trump’s DC Hotel…

    nice…nice these protestors that can’t even take a week or so to give the new President-Elect a chance to speak to everyone…

  45. deep cover – no, we don’t all have political chops! We just chime in! You can do it, too! And I agree about the purple, that’s what I was thinking, too. 🙂

    What I like about this place is that you can put forward theories or opinions. Another blog I go to, I rarely, rarely, rarely read the comments anymore. If someone deviates one iota from the group-think, they’re jumped on as a troll, even if they’ve been there longer than the accusers! THAT way lies stupid, IMO. Having ideas and freedom of speech, like here, shows we’re the smart ones

    For example, I’ve been wondering if Trump will continue to be able to make both his strict religious people and his gay people feel welcome once he starts delving into actually making policy. If I were to say that on that other blog, all I would hear is “let Trump be Trump!” because if you don’t assume he will be perfect, you’re a troll lol

    So this is the spot.

    And it’s pink. lol

  46. Outris, the “moment” you wanted will be delivered in January. For now, here is an appetizer treat from the New York Times. The Times is still making excuses for Obama by pretending the race-baiting did not come from Obama. The Times tries to pretend that the racial polarization came “suddenly” and tries to blame President-elect Donald J. Trump. The Times tries to ignore reality but reality will not be ignored:

    Obama’s Policies and Broader Vision Face Reckoning With History

    As he raced across the country before the election, President Obama warned supporters about the stakes. “All the progress we’ve made over these last eight years,” he said, “goes out the window if we don’t win this election.”

    Hillary Clinton, his anointed successor, did not win, and so now Mr. Obama will find out whether his prediction was just campaign hyperbole or if his legacy really has just gone out the window. Not only are specific initiatives like his health care and climate change programs at risk, but so, too, is the broader vision Mr. Obama articulated for America.

    Suddenly, the progressive, post-racial, bridge-building society he promised has given way to an angry, jeering, us-against-them nation to be led by a new president who relishes reality-show name-calling with racial overtones. In none of Mr. Obama’s worst-case scenarios when he came to office was this the way he imagined leaving.

    Since the electoral earthquake that made Donald J. Trump his designated successor, Mr. Obama has consoled his team — and himself — by telling them that they moved the country forward despite this obvious setback. Change does not follow a straight line, he told crying aides. Instead, it tends to zig and zag.

    But Mr. Obama’s place in history looks considerably different than a week ago. The transformation he envisioned may not survive his administration. He is leaving near the peak of his popularity, yet many of the voters who made Mr. Obama the nation’s first black president chose to replace him with a man who had peddled racially incendiary suggestions that he might not have been born in this country. [snip]

    “My operative theory of presidential succession is people always choose the remedy to what they have; they never choose the replica — even when the incumbent is popular,” said David Axelrod, Mr. Obama’s longtime strategist.

    Given that, aides argued that Mr. Trump’s election should not be viewed as a referendum on the president. “It was not a rejection of Obama or Obama-ism,” said Dan Pfeiffer, another former senior adviser. “It was probably more about the two candidates running in this election.”

    Critics said there was no way to look at it as anything but a rebuff. “The election outcome is a clear repudiation of President Obama, his policies, his vision, how those policies will be implemented,” said Eric Cantor, the former House Republican majority leader. “And frankly, I think it reflects the fact that most Americans think he failed.

    Jay Winik, a historian who has studied presidents of the Civil War and World War II eras, said Mr. Obama would be remembered for helping the country move further beyond the ugly legacy of slavery and racism. “That said, it is hard not to think, from a historian’s point of view, Trump’s election changes our perspective on President Obama and his impact on the country, knocking him down a few pegs,” he said. “A huge swath of American people were hurting, the so-called forgotten American, and President Obama failed them.

    Mr. Obama could take solace from the fact that most Americans approve of his handling of the job in polls and more Americans voted for Mrs. Clinton than Mr. Trump, despite the Electoral College. Aides even interpreted the results as a validation of sorts for Mr. Obama, because Mr. Trump stood as the candidate of change, just as he had, albeit change of a different sort.

    Indeed, Mr. Trump’s election imperils many of Mr. Obama policies, notably the health care law that has extended coverage to 20 million Americans but aggravated others who resented government intrusion and rising premiums. Mr. Trump has promised to scrap Mr. Obama’s international climate change agreement and Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact, renegotiate his Iran nuclear deal, dismantle Dodd-Frank regulations on Wall Street and reverse orders sparing millions of illegal immigrants from deportation. [snip]

    Still, after two midterm defeats, this was the third time since taking office that voters rejected Mr. Obama’s advice. He campaigned all out for Mrs. Clinton as no departing incumbent has in modern times, only to relearn the lesson that presidents cannot transfer popularity.

    And there is no getting around the fact that Mr. Trump’s America is not Mr. Obama’s. He has said one of his biggest disappointments was failing to heal the country’s divisions. Polarization now seems worse than before.

    Mr. Obama accepts only so much responsibility for that, faulting Republican obstructionism. He points to his early days in office, when he was heading to Capitol Hill to discuss the economic crisis only to hear that Representative John A. Boehner, the top House Republican, had already rejected the new president’s stimulus package out of hand.

    “When I think about the polarization that occurred in 2009 and 2010, I’ve gone back and I’ve looked at my proposals and my speeches and the steps we took to reach out to Congress,” he told the historian Doris Kearns Goodwin in a pre-election conversation published by Vanity Fair. “And the notion that we weren’t engaging Congress or that we were overly partisan or we didn’t schmooze enough, or we didn’t reach out enough to Republicans — that whole narrative just isn’t true.”

    Instead, he has pointed to Republican radicalization. “I see a straight line from the announcement of Sarah Palin as the vice-presidential nominee to what we see today in Donald Trump, the emergence of the Freedom Caucus, the Tea Party and the shift in the center of gravity for the Republican Party,” he told Jonathan Chait of New York magazine this fall.

    Republicans, unsurprisingly, reject that narrative. Mr. Cantor, then Mr. Boehner’s No. 2, cited a now-famous White House meeting in those early days. In it, Mr. Cantor suggested his own economic measures only to be dismissed. “Eric, elections have consequences and I won,” he recalled the president saying.

    “That was really the tenor of Obama’s Washington,” Mr. Cantor said. “It was much different from what the people heard him say on the trail. It was never really the vision that people were led to believe.”

    Mr. Cantor himself embodied the risks for Republicans perceived to be cooperating with Mr. Obama when he was ousted in a 2014 primary for not being conservative enough.

    Mr. Obama does not talk publicly about the role of race in the opposition to him, but it is cited by many of his supporters. Republican intransigence must be explained at least in part by race, they figure — a refusal to accept the legitimacy of the first African-American president.

    Yet lock-step opposition to Mr. Obama can also be explained by other factors, including political calculation and authentic philosophical disagreement. Mr. Obama’s opponents contend that he cites race to explain away valid criticism. His more virulent foes maintain that Mr. Obama is the one who fueled racial division.

    Either way, Mr. Obama did not fully see the emerging threat. He dismissed Mr. Trump as a carnival barker and, like many in Washington, did not understand that much of the country was alienated enough to embrace such a figure.

    To the president, Mr. Trump was a source of deep irritation for the racially charged accusation that he was not actually born in America. At the White House Correspondents Association dinner in 2011, Mr. Obama took revenge on Mr. Trump, mocking him and his reality show. (“You fired Gary Busey. And these are the kinds of decisions that would keep me up at night.”)

    In talks beforehand, aides recalled no debate about going after Mr. Trump. He was, Mr. Axelrod said, “low-hanging fruit” for Mr. Obama. “I guarantee you that as he delivered those jokes he did not think he was roasting his successor,” he said. “I don’t think that would have remotely crossed his mind.”

    David Litt, a former speechwriter for Mr. Obama, remembered thinking that evening that Mr. Trump had been destroyed politically, rendered a laughingstock. “That’s the end of Donald Trump,” he said he thought. Now the laughingstock holds the fate of Mr. Obama’s legacy in his hands.

    “I think President Obama will still go down in history as a great and historic president,” Mr. Litt said. “But a lot of his accomplishments are going to be limited by what happened on Tuesday. There’s no getting around that.”

    Obama is a treacherous race-baiting boob with delusions of grandeur. Obama and the kook left thought the opposite, that Obama was their golden calf god. Now reality has intruded on the Obama and kook left delusions. We have been proven correct. Obama is a treacherous race-baiting flim-flam boob with delusions of grandeur.

  47. TCM fans: One of the film youtubes we have posted here has been a powerful closing scene from Foreign Correspondent. The film comes from a time when the media reported news and informed the public about the reality faced around the world. The director of the film, Alfred Hitchcock, made this his first film in America.

    All through this election cycle, and really since 2007, we thought of this film. On election night as Alcina and others lit candles in prayer that Trump would win Florida, we thought of the film clip here.

    This is a big story and you’re part of it. Keep those lights burning.

    On Tuesday, America kept the lights on for the world. Land of the free, home of the brave.

  48. I hope KelIy Anne and Laura Ingram get positions

    Love to see Kelly as Communcations director and Laura as Press secretary…Laura has a bit more of biting edge that imo the Press Secretary, especially for Donald, will need

    The frightening thing is that they actually believe that pack of lies.
    I’m overjoyed with the election results and have to restrain myself from from crowing here but I’m also sick and tired of hearing the liberal left continuing on with heir package of misinformation.
    I really would like to shut them up.

    I do hope this blog continues and thrives. BIg Pink is the best source of analysis and news I have.
    I also do hope you change the name. People don’t want to read my links because they see Hillary’s name. I also don’t care if I never see or hear from her again.

  50. Welcome Deep Cover. I used to post under yheitman but when admin had a lot of trouble on the site about 2 months ago I had to change my name because I couldn’t get on the site. I too have mostly lurked and very rarely post but come here every day to read. I got a kick out of your post because I live in bizarro Washington state-just outside Seattle. You think you can’t talk to people where you live? Well, it’s just as bad here and it sucks!

    I was disowned this summer by my best friend, my sister, who realized I was a Trump supporter. She shocked me at how evil she turned when she found out I supported Trump. Said some terribly nasty things to me and we haven’t spoken since. Hurts me very deeply because I have always, as an older sister, bent over backwards for her. We have been with each other through thick and thin even though she lives 1,000 miles away from me. I don’t know if I can ever forgive her for the things she said to me and the things she said I am because I support Trump. I tried to tell her that just because our political views are different should be no reason to be this way but she didn’t/doesn’t want anything to do with me. Ah well. Somehow coming here and reading that there are like minded individuals makes me feel better so I come here at least 10 times a day LOL. Hope you keep coming here too.

  51. I hope Trump doesn’t back off too much from his illegal immigration stance. If all but the criminals stay, that’s a lot of jobs taken from Americans and leaves many of us picking up the bill for educating their kids. Would Trump like to come to my town and pick up the bill?

    I also don’t want to incarcerate the criminals….very expensive…get them out!

  52. foxy’s gatestone 3:51 pm link is a good article

    Reactions pro and con from Europe on Trump’s win

    one of the alternative German party people said,

    “Like Americans, citizens of Germany must have the courage to put a tick in the ballot box and not remain complacent. Their opinion counts, even if political correctness would appear to have elevated the decreed consensus to the level of a new doctrine.

    I really love the last sentence – it’s really well written, IMO.

  53. Admin

    I think it would be great if at least you can insert a photo of our Donald
    You may already be thinking of design updates…a good smiling photo in the heading or mast…whatever it is called of Donald would be awesome

  54. CNN is doubling down and getting worse
    They just don’t get it…still on the attack and pushing “alt right” BS

    they are going to become even more irrelevant…how far they have fallen from any connection to objectivity or honesty

  55. I still think Hillary’s outfit was horribly ugly and cartoonish. I am not sure in any manner that was an outfit she planned on wearing for a celebration.
    But thats chump change.
    I too am worried he won’t deport enough, what I think he will do, is cut off the funds after the thugs are gone and secure the borders. Once the money is gone, there will be another group of millions self deporting.
    I actually belive there are 30 million illegals here, not the 11 million they have been claiming for what, 8 years, the number never grows. I’m thinking to make real change, we need to deport 15 million or least.
    Oh brother, Austin has “hundreds” of protesters to support illegals this morning, just repoted

    I’m going to Ireland to claim my ancestors heritage and demand “free” everything and if that doesn’t work, I’m going to Norway. I’m a mutt, but I don’t want to go to Germany nor France at this point.

  56. How about Washington morphing into Trump?

    I’ve been thinking of this too.
    I really like the Lion that CTH had for him, dumping the elephant and of course the jacka#s.

  57. Just announces, Rencis Priebus Chief of Staff

    Not draining the Swap with that pick, but I guess you need a few..

  58. Bibi be smiling from ear to ear:

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu published a statement congratulating Trump, saying: “President-elect Trump is a true friend of the State of Israel. We will work together to advance the security, stability and peace in our region. The strong connection between the United States and Israel is based on shared values, shared interests and a shared destiny.

    “I’m certain that President-elect Trump and I will continue to strengthen the unique alliance between Israel and the United States, and bring it to new heights,” he added.

    Make America-Israel relations Great Again!

  59. Dear Admin,

    I am also a lurker who admires your expertise, your writing and your heart. I have read every post, actually during this election season, as well as many since 2007.
    So today I wanted to register just to thank you, whoever you are, for being you. I note as well your love of music and art, in the midst of it all. Yes. Thank you Admin from my heart to your heart. And thank you to all your supporters.


  60. I read that it’s best for chief of staff to know all the ins and outs of congress and the senate – that might have been a barrier for Kellyanne having that post…

  61. Yolanda and Deep cover, I am sad for the pain you feel, you are by no means alone. Who knows how many of us there are living among the arugula elite who are ostracized by friends and family for our political views. Eight years ago I was shattered that I was considered to be racist because I chose to work in support of nominating HRC instead of an African American for candidate for President. Now eight years later I am on the ‘other’ side again. As you say Yolanda – such painful accusations – and for me the relationships just have never recovered to their pre-election status and I feel such a deep loss of friends with whom I have shared so much of my life. What hurts the most is that people who, I believe, are relatively well educated and attuned to what is going on in the US and the rest of the world do not take the opportunity to think for themselves or gather material to inform their opinions from anywhere except the biased, deceitful main stream liberal media. Thanksgiving will be awkward again this year. I too have really been so thankful for Big Pink and all of you posting here. I miss seeing Shadowfax and others though 🙁

  62. Trump on 60 minutes first commercial they aired Was a preview for brad Pitts new nazi movie….. subliminal messaging at its best… t

  63. I am venturing out of the lurking closet to finally say – ADMIN, you are brilliant, sarcastic and so very funny! I thank you so much for having this wonderful blog that has kept me informed and sane these past 8 years. I was just the other night rereading the old posts and remembering the awful shock & sadness I felt when O was chosen over Hillary. All the other liberal blogs at that time turned away from her for this inexperienced man and told us to get over it…I never did. I don’t believe for one minute that O has a high approval rating now at all – just another media lie. As you so often said it was a change election and Trump brings change & boldness that this country needs now.

  64. Lesley Stall looked stunned by the end of the interview
    Her facial expression when Donald said ‘who cares…that is peanuts and he doesn’t care about hotel occupancy…the American people are hurting…her face was priceless…

  65. “In October a total of 46,195 individuals were apprehended between ports of entry on our southwest border, compared with 39,501 in September and 37,048 in August,” (snip) “Within these totals, we have seen corresponding increases in the numbers of unaccompanied children and individuals in families apprehended.

    And they don’t catch most of them. These numbers are incredible.

    We’ve also seen increases in the numbers of those who present themselves at ports of entry along the southwest border seeking asylum.”

    This must refer to the so-called “Syrian refugees” which have amassed in MX at the border waiting to get into our country.

    The agents will temporarily be transferred from the Tucson, San Diego, and Del Rio Sectors to the McAllen and Weslaco Centralized Processing Centers. Their duty will be to increase the screening and processing of the unauthorized immigrants with a focus on UACs and FMUAs, she stated.

    No, Obama isn’t starting to do his job. He wants to “process” those “UACs” and “FMUAs” by giving them bus rides where they want to go (which is what he has done in the past) to get them into the interior of the country before he leaves office. If he were serious, he’d be turning them all back.

  66. From above article:

    “However, despite the MSM trying to attach responsibility to Trump, their intended purpose -to protect the Obama/Clinton legacy- is not yielding the desired results.  More and more people are looking toward the White House silence and beginning to understand the manipulative ideological intents of the professional antagonism.”

  67. So I just saw Trump interviewed about abortion – yikes – he says if the Supreme Court overturns RoevWade, it will to the states. He said some women will have to go to other states. That doesn’t work, though, they don’t have the money. Then coat hangers start getting used again. There are more birth control options now, but there will still be women who need early term abortions.

    He’s backing off on Hillary now. Then he should let the other people out of jail for doing even less.

  68. @ lorac….I would love to not lurk and I thank you for the invitation. I would even love to take you up on it. But I feel relegated to my own world of doubting both parties and any candidate given the national spotlight.

    I want to join in so bad here sometimes, but to invite me in would mean inviting doubts about more than the DNC…I might doubt everyone with a ‘heard’ voice in U.S. politics. I’m so cynical after my party stabbed me in the back, in 2008, for fucking Barak Obama. I felt like republicans were complicit. My voice doesn’t register any where.

    I’ve been disenfranchised since 2000. I haven’t voted for a ‘winner’ since 1996.

    Are my thoughts welcome, here, if I fret that this election is not over? If I fret that these protests are planned until the inauguration — and see that as a glaring RED FLAG. These protests won’t conclude until after the Trump University lawsuit is scheduled to begin on November 28 — the verdict of which could serve as an *excuse* for faithless electors to violate their state’s wishes and overturn this election, would you guys want me here if I contemplated these ideas?

    I am still holding my breath until that Oath has been administered and Trump is president. Until then, I am terrified we will be disenfranchised….again. I feel alone and that is why I lurk in many places, and don’t give my trust over easily.

    So….do you you really want to invite me to the conversation? I am probably better off fearing my awful fears on my own.

  69. Hmmm…. he just said that gay marriage is settled, it was settled by Supreme Court, so it doesn’t matter what he personally thinks…

    Then how come that doesn’t apply to abortion…? That was settled by the court, too…

  70. plasticities – we *all* have worries at times – that’s why it’s good to participate, because we help each other!

  71. Thanks Monserrat09, CTtoCA, deep cover, and the rest of the former “lurkers” and regular readers for the kind words. As painful as it is to admit, it is an age old lesson that we mostly learn through pain. Birth comes through a great pain.

    For those of us who suffered through Obama it is painful but true that we had to undergo the horror of Obama and the loss of Hillary in 2008 if we were ever going to wake up and be open to someone like President-elect, soon President, Donald J. Trump. Without the display of totalitarianism from the left (always for such very “good” reasons, and such “wonderful” intentions, and condescending “enlightenment”) as exemplified by Barack Obama and his gangster government we would mostly all still be rationalizing the authoritarian brutality of the left.

    We had to suffer to get to this point of great joy. The people and the Almighty raised up a Gideon to rescue the nation and “Make America Great Again”. We’re only humbled in whatever small part we played in the election of Donald J. Trump by our acceptance of reality and not the darkness of delusion.

  72. @lorac…thanks for wanting a challenging community, here, and embracing the idea of someone with the kind of ideas I might bring to your table. Jesus, how I have been left traumatized by the coronation of Obama and all it entailed to make it happen. I like my aloneness, but I don’t want to feel alone. If I feel I have anything of value to add to the conversation, I won’t be reluctant to add. Plus, you guys cuss like sailors and I cannot discuss politics without the generous peppering of foul language.

  73. Plasticities, the demonstrations, protests, and riots against President-elect Donald J. Trump help President-elect Donald J. Trump. It’s something we wrote about repeatedly when it came to Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter and all the other Soros funded performances of Kookdom.

    The Tea Party movement was successful because they did not block traffic and cleaned up after themselves when they held a demonstration.

    Americans will tolerate just about anything except when someone or some group blocks traffic. It’s sort of humorous, but true. Don’t block traffic if you want sympathy or support for your “cause”. Occupy Wall Street was successful in duping the public until they blocked bridges and traffic. When Occupy Wall Street started to invade restaurants to protest, that was the last time the public tolerated them.

    Black Lives Matter had some sympathy too from the public. The riots and blocking of traffic brought that circus to an end as well.

    The anti-election of President-elect Donald J. Trump demonstrations were a desperate acknowledgement of the failure of the left on Tuesday. But the moment the riots took place in Portland the public sympathy was over.

    As to your concerns about the electoral college, if we are sure of anything we are sure that the electoral college will vote for President-elect Donald J. Trump. You may contemplate those ideas all you want, but rest assured these are the fever dreams of a discredited left with nothing left to hope for.

    If we could write a script on what would make President-elect Donald J. Trump more powerful than he is now, the script we would write is the one you consider a “glaring red flag”. An electoral college coup, more demonstrations, Hells Bells lets be explicit – violent demonstrations and blood on the streets and unfiltered hatred against Trump and his supporters – would make Trump more powerful than he already immeasurably is.

    We would advise you put away your fears. Do not be terrified. It is a time for Thanksgiving, not trepidation.

  74. gonzo – ya gotta help me out with that lol are you talking about Franklin Graham, Billy Graham’s son? If so, how come…? 🙂

  75. Trumps not going to push for the over turning of Roe, I do think late term abortion is on the table however.

    He has to play this just right, Graham got him 83% of evangelical’ s vote…he is beholding to them and Americans don’t like the idea of terminating a pregnancy that could have been a viable human being

  76. Why the heck did he go on 60 minutes with that fool,it is unbelievable how disrespectful they are.,
    The hell with tradition. This double standard BS needs to stop. Cut them off, the media, until they agree to behave as adults.

  77. Plus, you guys cuss like sailors

    It’s a right wing conspiracy.

    It’s the Russians’ fault.

    It’s Comey’s fault.


  78. I belive, not a lawyer here, they can accept cases from the states or not and it my be they accept a case which deals with late term abortion only and not Roe in its entirety.


  79. Well the safety pin will help with their diapers…

    It’s like #tag, release the girls you stole ISIS…about that effective IMHO.

    Whatever they need to feel special and “safe”…

  80. Admin, I want to believe that beautiful ideas can be planted in minds, like Cary Grant said. It’s the sole reason I try to offer beautiful ideas, myself. I always loved this forum of debate. I’ll take any place that will put up with even 10% of the thoughts I want to express. I don’t offend easily and I love the very intelligent, confident ideas I find here….especially from you.

    I’m in. I want to be a believer. I want to stop holding my breath and believe it’s real: The Democratic party lost the 2016 election and nothing will change that. I won’t believe it until the Oath has been administered, though. I do not trust the Democratic party, at all, and I think they have every trick up their sleeve. SO I won’t let my guard down until Trump is in the Oval Office.

    Also…I used to contribute as MissTickly here. Does anyone here remember me?

  81. I remember the name, but that’s all, I wouldn’t have been able to guess which Hillary site I knew it from – but other people have better memories than I!

  82. Ok, I’m just wondering…has anyone gone over to Uppity Woman to see how crazed they are right now?

    Maybe Shadow, my emesis, is protesting in the streets as we speak…

  83. I looked right after the election. They believe every falsity about Obama the MSM and Hillary could come up with. I pasted a bunch of the comments (without names) here. Basically, they think the world is ending.

  84. ROFL look what you did, gonzo! You forgot the “n”, it became a word from your job – maybe it’s true either way lol

  85. I thought about going over there but didnt. They were like a cult, an angry cult and didn’t want to mess with it.
    Jesus, PM and Shadow, they were always acting so superior. I guess, just like left wing nuts do in reality. When they knew the site here had fully left Hillary, or she left us in reality, they went over there.
    I know there are those here that would have liked them to stay, but I really couldn’t tolerate their hatred for Trump and blind minds to Hillary and her lawlessness. We definitely didn’t like each other and we’re clear about it.

  86. Watch this youtube (the headline on Drudge) and laugh. IT’S OVER FOR TRUMP!!!! 🙂

    He who laughs last, laughs best.

  87. @Gonzo….”has anyone gone over to Uppity Woman to see how crazed they are right now…” I read Uppity’s election night thread comments, too. There were tears and sick stomachs. There was the want for sleep but not wake up and have to remember.

    I still celebrated Hillary’s loss and the demise of the DNC, but I can’t say that I did not empathize.

    That said, I LOL’d at some of the video compilations of Hillary supporters breaking down.

    “As to your concerns about the electoral college, if we are sure of anything we are sure that the electoral college will vote for President-elect Donald J. Trump. You may contemplate those ideas all you want, but rest assured these are the fever dreams of a discredited left with nothing left to hope for.”

    It is exactly the same mentality of the Cruz-bots and Jeb-sters threatening some bizarre coup at the Republican convention. If you lose fair and square change the rules is the reaction of children. It is acting out and cognitive dissonance in very silly and immature manner. Then they turn to doing away with the electoral college, advocate the tyranny of the majority when they still think Hillary won the popular vote (she probably did by the skin of her teeth with illegal alien voting) and make the population (and voter) replacement plan of globalists all the more obvious. The landslide in the electoral college is what made Hillary (semi) concede on Tuesday night. She was close to skunked.

    After eight years of race baiting, gender baiting, region and class baiting, and bear baiting what exactly did they expect? Frank Luntz (the dunce who Trump turned out of his office as services not required before he announced) was asked yesterday on Fox WHY for God’s sake the polling was so wrong? He piss-ily said because Trump voters refused to be polled from day one. Refused to be on his panels, refused to be “baited” into giving their cultural, political, and economic enemies information although the dunce didn’t say that. And they refused to be demeaned, hectored, or get fired for being politically incorrect. Imagine that. So Frank knew that Trump supporters were being under polled, sampled, or represented in the polling from day one which made all of his “product” garbage. Your don’t give your enemy, competitor, or a fool digging their own grave a leg up on information. The progs/GOPe believed their own bullshit based on bad intelligence that they were delighted confirmed their bias. And eight years of ridiculous majority voting by race, special interest, gender, class, and baiting by bullies is teaching whites how to vote the same way. Why they think is fine for some groups to do this but not others shows their bigotry. The “white-lash” is simply a group following the same philosphy and political social pattern that others have done in recent years. It bit them in the butt and that is why they are so angry. It has been going on for a few years they just refused to see it. Now the situation comedy coalition, which is falling apart, has to face a bigger and much more monolithic one. And of course they are screaming racist. Lucky Trump.

  89. Rinse Piebus is an interesting pick for chief of staff. First off it clears the RNC and lets Trump replace with his own guy or gal. Then the Never-Trumpers can be purged and denied sinecures. Next is of course they can watch Rinse and if he missteps or doesn’t bring the Never-Trumper/GOPe along he can be fired which of course Trump has zero problem doing. Bannon is not saddled with the duties and responsibilities of chief of staff and can be a wandering advisor with a quiver of killshots. The transition team shut down the pathetics floating idiot rumors of NeverTrumpers getting plum appointments with the retort re loser Ayotte (she had the foolish nerve to say she would take a job with Trump after insulting him then losing her Senate seat) that she was being considered for nothing. The desperate begging for Cruz to be on the Supreme Court is being floated probably by HIM. He is facing two powerful and popular congressmen raising tons of money to primary him so another plum job before he is kicked out would be a godsend to him. But NO Lyin’ Ted Canadian globalists on the court. And Paul Ryan doesn’t have the votes to be speaker. Things are shaking out fast and Trump doesn’t waste time.

    Women will need to organize and support each other. Men who do not want unwanted children should, too. Maybe more people will take care and will stop using abortion as a means on birth control, too. My worry is the states that could make it illegal to cross state lines to get an abortion.

  91. An oldie but a goodie and it is even more obvious today.

    “As the ruling class wannabes, has beens, might’ve beens and I ams gather for today’s inauguration ceremony to offer laud and narcissistic supply to the most perfect exemplar of the ruling class that they have ever seen, Codevilla’s observations about the rapidly imploding ratio of competence to confidence among America’s elite are a breath of contrarian sanity.”
    “The Ruling Class of America is not up to the challenge of leading America in the world, partly because it has engaged for several generations now in a process of reverse merit selection.”
    “Our ruling class has practiced negative selection for several generations now.”
    “This has nothing to do with fairness; this is not a moral argument I’m making at all…I’m saying that the people running this country are ever less competent to do their job. They are ever less able to do whatever the hell they do.”
    “They are ever more confident because they live in a bubble. They congratulate themselves. They give prizes to one another; they tell each other how smart they are.”

    “Having been a college professor for many years I saw students become ever more confident of their own intelligence and their own preparation while they were becoming less able to do the most elementary things.”

    “They are becoming more insular, less bright and less demanding of themselves.”

    Read the whole thing. It is stuff we already know but put out in a concise article.

    A big part of the hysteria going on in the Democratic party (and the GOPe) is their social system of self dealing, nepotism, and forms of Tammany Hall paychecks is collapsing. This is causing real psychic pain as they are obviously not smart. Or competent. Or operating with a full deck. Their assumptions, expectations, and connections are falling apart. Idiot CEO’s are acting out against their own “suspected” disloyal employees (some are even badmouthing their customers) who “MIGHT” have voted for Trump because their huge donations to candidates, NGO’s, parties, special interest groups are not going to have the expected payoff of the “investment”. “You fucked up you trusted us” should be the epitaph of the Obama globalist progressive era.

  92. Dear Admin,
    In the political realm
    There is no one smarter than you Admin. And “smart’ isn’t the correct word to use actually. Intelligent isn’t either. You are prophetic. I don’t plan to write much here, My own expertise is in other areas. I follow a simple rule, that has served me well.

    Know what you don’t know. And know who does.

    That’s why I read Hillary is 44. It is too bad that Hillary did not listen to you. She might not have now so many lost followers crying in the wilderness. We were with them a few years ago. Looking back turns us to salt. it is time, as you say, to look forward.

    To Gideon.

  93. It looks like today’s casualty is net neutrality.

    Maybe one day I’ll get sick of winning. But that day is not today.

    Long live The Trumpinator!

  94. I just took a glimpse at UppityWoman’s site. I’m not sure if it was sadistic glee or a masochistic desire, maybe both, but the people who shared this site with us for so long have totally lost their way.

    In 2008 we were all “country before party, or candidate.” Again in 2012. In 2016, again, we are all country before anything else. The writing has been on the wall for years and we stood firm. However, they still cling to their quite flawed, and very corrupt party and candidate.

    What is that old axiom? Oh, yeah. A neurotic builds castles in the air. A psychotic lives in those castles. The psychiatrist collects the rent.

    They have now gone from neurosis to psychosis. They will now give all their money to the DNC and Soros to strengthen the foundation of their imaginary castles. They will go even further left. A minority, granted. But psychotics can be dangerous.

    ……Maybe Shadow, my emesis, is protesting in the streets as we speak…
    Could be Gonzo. Along with Moon and Woman4Power. May we hope that JB finally saw the light?

  96. Umm…..scratch my statement above. I peeked in at Uppity Woman. What a sad/evil place. PM, Moon, JB and other former HIS44 people over there. Here’s a sample of one of JB’s latest diatribes:
    “jbstonesfan, on November 13, 2016 at 12:37 AM said:
    Beyond depressing..just those promos for 60 minutes with the whole clan…. The sons turned out to be a vicious as the father. I had fairly positive feelings about Ivanka, but I don’t like her anymore either. I am sure lots of males voted for the pretty blondes and trophy wife as well.”
    Wonder how JB’s wife, whom he stated was a Trump supporter, is able to deal with him.

    Maybe we can send them all some virtual safety pins.

  97. Blowme , that is Hilarious!
    And JB be like so well spoken, kind, eyore here…good to know…


    Reminds me of that Leslie Gore song I believe, “Two Faces have I”

  98. Yes. He was always the ultimate eeyore. I guess he has a “public” and “private” opinion. Where have we heard that before 🙂

  99. I have really had it with the so called liberal /progressives especially my fellow Jews like JB. They are disgraceful in their ignorance. Women, Jews and gays have more to fear from Clinton /Obama democrats than they do from Trump as every country with a rising Muslim population has become increasingly dangerous for them.

    I have always opposed Trumps stand abortion rights. However, as I explained to my daughter we do now have the right to choose and the nations’ other problems are more pressing and severe at this point. We must fix those problems first and we can fight the other fight at some future date. Many conservative judges accept Roe v Wade as settled law so we will have to see. The only viable way to oppose the dems in the election was from the R party. There was just no way Trump could run and win without the evangelical and conservative vote. I don’t believe social issues were Trump’s reason for running but we can see what his 1st court pick looks like before getting too crazed. I do know that I don’t want another Sotomayor type and I believe Hillary’s pick would have been a Muslim because the dems do everything by categories not competence.

    My biggest concern is that the establishment R’s are going to make it difficult for Trump to do all he should on illegal immigrants that are here. What about chain migration and birthright citizenship. I can’t see the congress and senate giving in to term limits either.

  100. Idiot CEO’s are acting out against their own “suspected” disloyal employees (some are even badmouthing their customers)
    That would be true of that east Indian woman who is the supposed CEO of Pepsi and is telling Trump supporters to buy they products elsewhere.

    Rarely if ever have I seen the head of a publicly held company write off half their customer base in a very lucrative market for reason which are purely personal.

    It would not take a normal board long to can that ignoramus. But in this case, I wonder, because this same board installed her. If sales slip, as they most likely will, she will be blamed for it.

    In my case, I will be quite happy to honor her request, and never buy a Pepsi product in the future.

  101. foxy, it says “projected”.. and there’s no date that I can find… we need something that shows that 100% of votes counted…

  102. Administrative Leave?

    PacketSled Puts CEO on Administrative Leave After He Threatens to Take Out Trump with a Sniper Rifle


    The security firm PacketSled announced on Sunday that it has put its CEO on administrative leave after he threatened to take out President-elect Donald Trump with a sniper rifle. PacketSled defines itself as “a disruptive security company focused on detection, response, and continuous monitoring of advanced threats.”

    Ironically, some Trump supporters on Reddit caught PacketSled CEO Matt Harrigan making some fairly disturbing “advanced threats” of his own on the night of the election:

    “I’m going to kill the president. Elect,” Harrigan declared on Facebook. When someone cautioned him about making comments that could attract the attention of the FBI or Secret Service, Harrigan said, “Bring it secret service.” When one of his buddies said “you just need to get high,” he went into disturbing detail about his plans.

    “Nope, getting a sniper rifle and perching myself where it counts. Find a bedroom in the White House that suits you, motherf*cker. I’ll find you.” Later on that night, he wrote in all caps, “IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS F*CK YOU AMERICA. SERIOUSLY. F*CK OFF.”
