Some golfer, or somebody, said “The harder you practice, the luckier you get.” Golfer Jack Nicklaus did say “I don’t believe in luck.” Ordinarily we agree with that sentiment. Hard work and preparation often lead to what is called “luck”. But with Donald J. Trump, er, President-Elect Donald J. Trump, um, come-on guy no one is that lucky, no amount of work or preparation can explain how lucky President-Elect Donald J. Trump is. Come-on, guy. Is President-Elect Donald J. Trump bribing every kook on the left or is he just lucky or are they just that koo-koo-kook???
Today we planned to discuss what President-Elect Donald J. Trump could, would, or (out of the box ideas from us) should do. It was supposed to be (and will be, as we will publish that article soon enough), a continuation of our previous discussion President Trump Revolution Blueprint Priorities: What, When, How, @RealDonaldTrump Must Do. But events of a very lucky nature for President-Elect Donald J. Trump intervened, and as a prelude to Thanksgiving, today we discuss the luck, preparation, or divine intervention on behalf of our newly minted President-Elect.
Throughout his short campaign which began on June 15, 2015 and ended successfully on November 8-9, 2016 Donald J. Trump often played a song at his rallies. The song was “You can’t always get what you want” by the Rolling Stones. The chorus of the song is “You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, well you might find, you get what you need.”
On election day, for survival itself, the nation needed to get rid of Barack Obama and of necessity the Obama Third Term, which is what Hillary Clinton embodied. The country got what the country needed. America, whether by divine intervention, or as a product of human activity, got what America needed to survive. But for many, we not only got what we needed, we got what we wanted. We got President-Elect Donald J. Trump.
Likewise, Donald J. Trump got what he needed. Trump needed to win because if he had lost all Hell would have come down upon him. All the power and terror of the totalitarian left would have been loosed upon Trump and his family. Donald J. Trump got what he needed to survive. Donald J. Trump also got what he wanted – which was to lead the country and Make America Great Again.
This weekend, President-Elect Donald J. Trump got more icing on the cake with cherries on top and white and dark chocolate, and marsh-mellows, and syrup and sparklers, and Christmas/Thanksgiving/New Year’s and the Fourth of July combined. All these treats came, special delivery prime, with bows and ribbons, gift wrapped in gold leaf gorgeousness, courtesy of the kook left. It was as if Santa emptied his toy factory, the Easter bunny ovaries worked a lifetime of chocolate egg production, the Tooth Fairy rewarded every tooth ever lost, the Three Kings unpacked their camels, and every Hanukkah gelt and dreidel, was gifted to President-Elect Donald J. Trump.
Where to begin? Let’s start at the very bottom of the barrel: Barack Obama. This weekend Barack Obama gave President-Elect Donald J. Trump and the Republican Party a great gift:
Obama — concluding the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Lima — acknowledged that he wouldn’t hesitate to play critic in a Trump presidency if “necessary.” [snip]
“If there’s specifics that have less to do with some proposal or battle but goes to the core questions about our values and our ideals, and if I think that it’s necessary or helpful for me to defend those ideal then I’ll examine it when it comes.”
Did President-Elect Donald J. Trump pay Barack Obama to say something so stupid??? What else could it be? How else to explain the full stupidity of this?? Obama’s legacy was on the ballot in November, sez B.O.:
An angry Obama puts himself on the ballot
Declaring he would consider it “a personal insult, an insult to my legacy” if black turnout falters for Hillary Clinton, Obama did what he got reamed for doing almost exactly two years ago, in the heat of midterm elections in which disdain for him was the defining force: Yes, he said, he is pretty much on the ballot in November.
“My name may not be on the ballot, but our progress is on the ballot,” Obama said, his voice rising to a shout as he went well beyond what sources familiar with the speech said was a tamer version of the riff in the prepared remarks.
Obama lost. Everything went up in smoke. The 10 year plan, the 40 year plan, ObamaCare, TPP – it all went up in smoke – the “transformational world historic” Obama is less than a footnote, less than an asterisk, less than a parenthesis, now.
Most importantly the nonsense about the “Obama coalition” is proven to be nothing but what we termed back in the 2008 election cycle: the demographics of a situation comedy. Why is this all so important? Because the Democratic Party cannot begin to function, cannot recover from the Mistake in ’08 until and unless Barack Obama is repudiated by the Democratic Party.
The strategic mission for the GOP for the next several years should be to make sure that Barack Obama is the face of the Democratic Party for ever and ever. The GOP should not let any rational voice emerge within the Democratic Party. The minute any Democrat politician or interest group so much as suggests that Barack Obama does not represent the Democrat Party and/or that Barack Obama is the reason the Democrat Party is a pile of rubble – the GOP should insist that person is A RACIST!
Barack Obama wants to control the Democrat Party and the GOP should help Obama in that task. The GOP should denounce any and all rational people who want to get rid of Barack Obama, destroyer of the Democrat Party, as a racist – thereby insuring generations of Republican Party control of the Executive and Legislative branches of government.
In 2020 when the national parties meet in convention the GOP should do everything to make sure Barack Obama is center stage at the Democrat convention. If the Democrats in convention try to nudge Obama to anything but the center stage in prime time (like what they did to nonperson Jimmy Carter), the Republican Party should call them out and suggest the Democrat Party is a nest of racists out to deny Barack Obama all the glory he is due.
That Barack Obama destroyed the Democrat Party is now beyond dispute. The goal of the GOP for the next several election cycles should be to keep the Democrat Party in the hole Obama dug. Dig it??? To borrow from the poet Milton, let Obama rule in Hell, the GOP can serve in Heaven.
If Barack Obama, contra George W. Bush who did not critique Barack Obama, wants to be the face of the Democrat Party, let him. Insist on it. Barack Obama as the face of the Democrat Party, is like putting the picture of a rat with blood drenched teeth and diseased fur, on the label of a glass jar of baby food. Ugh!
President-Elect Donald J. Trump had more unsavory news this past weekend which might be painful, but which undoubtedly helps him enormously. That nasty John Wilkes Booth style ambush at the theater against Vice-President-Elect Mike Pence reminds Trump voters of what they are up against. Even within the left, haters of Trump and Pence, the ambush of Pence made no sense:
Steven Van Zandt of the E Street Band, one who is not shy about making pointed political statements, feels the cast of “Hamilton: An American Musical” bullied Vice President-elect Mike Pence when a cast member addressed Pence from the stage at the Friday, Nov. 18 performance.
“It was the most respectful, benign form of bullying ever. But bullying nonetheless. And by the way, human rights must be won, not asked for,” said Van Zandt in a series of tweets on Saturday, Nov. 19. “When artists perform the venue becomes your home. The audience are your guests. It’s taking unfair advantage of someone who thought they were a protected guest in your home”
“A guy comes to a Broadway show for a relaxing night out. Instead he gets a lecture from the stage! Not a level playing field. It’s bullying. You don’t single out an audience member and embarrass him from the stage. A terrible precedent to set.”
Abuse and bullying by the left is generally ignored by Big Media. But the ambush attack against the genial Mike Pence, well, made no sense because it alienated even those who don’t like the results of the election. Lucky winner? President-Elect Donald J. Trump who defended Vice-President-Elect Mike Pence.
Mike Pence is not the only one bullied by the leftist totalitarians. On Sunday night, Melania Trump was bullied and abused. Imagine what would happen if lantern-jawed Michelle Obama was mocked on a nationally broadcast awards show the way the lovely Melania Trump was bullied:
The hosts of the 2016 American Music Awards, Gigi Hadid and Jay Pharoah, used their joint opening monologue to rib President-elect Donald Trump and incoming first lady Melania Trump.
Hadid tried to embody Melania Trump, saying that she had been working on the impression “all week.” The supermodel puckered her lips, saying: “I gotta get the face right.”
“I love my husband…,” Hadid, 21, started in a thick accent.
We’re not the only ones who saw the hypocrisy of the left as the lovely Melania Trump was bullied:
— A Chic Named Larry (@NurseLiberty) November 21, 2016
Without a doubt this abuse of the lovely and gentle Melania Trump must hurt the entire Trump family. Trump voters and supporters are incensed by this abuse. Cold blooded bottom line analysis? This helps President-Elect Donald J. Trump because his voters are reminded of the how low the Democrats can go.
Also, even though President-Elect Donald J. Trump does not like being victimized, the fact is that any decent American that sees Melania Trump bullied and abused, mocked and jeered at by an ugly thing on TV in a silly awards show, will feel sympathy for the entire Trump family. Every time President-Elect Donald J. Trump and President Donald J. Trump make the case against Big Media, this attack against the next First Lady will be Exhibit #1.
As we have written repeatedly, Big Media is the enemy. The Hollywood establishment and the lowlifes of the entertainment industry are but another swamp that must be drained. Fortunately, for every American who sees the need to destroy Big Media and the cohorts of the left, Donald J. Trump will soon be President of the United States. Sometimes you get what you need.
Ain’t that a kick in the head?
