Great News: Alcoholics And Drug Addicts Against @RealDonaldTrump!!! Part I

Update: It’s over for Trump! 🙂 🙂 🙂 He’s now President-Elect Donald J. Trump. The Electoral College has voted and opposition to Donald J. Trump has proven to be an illusion/delusion/hallucination. Blame it on Hoaxium!

In 2008 Barack Obama supporters snorted Hopium and believed in their tin plated squirrel king who has led the Dim Party to historic losses without the aid of Putin or other bogeymen fictions. Post-election 2016 the losers snort Hoaxium, a powerful Hopium derivative and hallucinogenic. Such is the power of 2016 Hoaxium that millions of dollars were given by Hillary Clinton supporters to Dr. Jill Stein who ceaselessly attacked Hillary Clinton during the election. The Hoaxium led to millions of dollars wasted in recounts instead of electoral efforts in the future. The Hoaxium led to deliriums that Republican activist electors would repudiate themselves and their life work to elect someone else. Hoaxium is a strong drug.

The results of these Hoaxium election tremens is that Donald J. Trump gained votes during the recounts and today, as in the recounts, Hillary Clinton lost more electoral votes – four in Washington State mostly given instead to RINO Republican Colin Powell – Hillary loses again to a black man. Trump? He’s not tired of winning and neither are his 304 electors and millions of supporters.

——————————————–

President-Elect Donald J. Trump does not drink alcohol nor indulge in mind altering drugs. Judging by their Eichenwaldian style meltdowns post election, Obama Dimcrats appear to only drink alcohol and ingest mind altering drugs. These mind bending behaviors by Obama Dimcrats are great news for soon to be President Donald J. Trump.

The Jill Stein recounts (which served only to relive election night victories by Trump), the Electoral College coup attempts by NeverTrump loons doomed to more disappointments, the “Russians did it” theories of election theft propounded by Hillary Clinton, Hillary2016, and Podesta/Pelosi, the “blame Bernie Sanders” theories, the “Big Media unfair to Hillary” theories, the “blame voter ID requirements”, the “Comey is to blame” theories, the “Hillary won millions more votes which means the election was hacked or otherwise stolen”, all these theories and excuses are indicators of severe drug/alcohol abuse akin to the 2007/2008 Hopium crisis.

Is there a theory or someone that has not been blamed yet for Hillary Clinton’s election loss? Who’s next on the blame train? Should we blame Marlon Brando (waddaya got?), or O.J. Simpson (who me?), or Charles Manson (I wasn’t there!), or Jon-Benet Ramsey’s parents (our daughter is not pimped out), Bugs Bunny (what’s up doc?) or those pesky grey aliens (bow down to your alien overlords)? On Monday when Donald J. Trump is voted President-Elect Donald J. Trump by the Electoral College the mental hospitals and drug wards will fill up, as they did on election night, with pajama boy leftists who were convinced by Big Media that Donald J. Trump had no chance to win.

This is all great news for soon to be President Donald J. Trump. Why? Well, let’s turn to Alcoholics Anonymous and other addiction programs for the tried and true methodology to overcome drug and/or alcohol addiction, for the answer:

admitting that one cannot control one’s alcoholism, addiction or compulsion;
recognizing a higher power that can give strength;
examining past errors with the help of a sponsor (experienced member);
making amends for these errors;
learning to live a new life with a new code of behavior;
helping others who suffer from the same alcoholism, addictions or compulsions.

Here’s the key Obama Dimcrats and crushed Hillary Clinton voters looking for someone to blame: first, you must admit you have a problem. Without admitting you have a problem you cannot move forward. Without admitting you have a problem nothing will change and you will continue to be losers.

See why this is such great news for President Donald J. Trump? As long as Obama Dimcrats and Hillary Clinton voters refuse to admit they need to change, nothing will change for them. This means President Donald J. Trump will be alone on the fast lane of success as he speeds by his drugged/drunken political opponents on the far far far out out out left left left.

In one sense the Obama Dimcrat escape-from-reality strategy is necessary if they are to avoid catatonic madness. These delusions and escapes from reality can be considered necessary because Obama Dimcrats and the Obama Third Term fools at Hillary2016 know what’s coming. The Obama years will be erased the same way a mother scrapes the feces from a baby’s bottom. The Obama Dimcrats read Mark Meadows’ plan for the first 100 days and how Republicans will eliminate the Obama feces from law and in order to avoid catatonic madness they have escaped into a world of delusion.

Add the Mark Meadows plan to the President-Elect Donald J. Trump cabinet appointees, the coming Supreme Court nomination(s), the total destruction of hated ObamaCare, the destruction of the Obama Dimocrat Party at the national, state and local levels, the Republican Party control of Senate, House, and White House, the total control of the Federal bureaucracy and all the agencies and departments of the Federal government, control by soon to be President Trump of the Border Patrol, control by soon to be President Trump of the investigative powers of the Federal government and it’s army of prosecutors along with the ability of the Justice Department to eliminate court orders imposed by the Justice Department on states and localities over the years, the total control by President Trump of the armed forces of the United States – Navy, Army, Air Force, – and all the police agencies of all the departments of government, the total control by President Trump of boards which regulate labor unions and businesses, the total control by President Trump of toxic environmental agencies which have used their power well outside legal authority, the ability of President Trump to immediately throw out Obama legacy items such as the Iran deal and the Paris Accords on environment which were imposed by executive overreach which can be overcome by the new executive, the stunning victory of Donald J. Trump over Big Media, Academia, and other institutions of power which opposed his election and how President Trump will be able to use his communicative skills via Twitter, FaceBook, and rallies of tens of thousands of supporters once in office to further geld Big Media and the allies of the left, along with others in the immeasurable vastness of the Trump victory – and you can see how retreat into delusion is the only safety valve for Obama Dimocrats from Eichenwaldian hysterical madness.

This numbing future for the left is why so many indulge themselves in fantasy therapies with cuddly Teddy Bears about how they are not to blame for their own defeat but rather it is mean ol’ Vlad Putin, as Hillary Clinton says that caused the historic defeat of the left and the Obama Third Term. Vlad Putin and the Russians cannot single-handedly be apportion credit for the massive election defeat so all the other excuses come into play.

Into the fray comes Al From. Al From of the hated Democratic Leadership Council helped Bill Clinton win the presidency in 1992 by demanding the Democratic Party abandon the crazy politics of the left. Now Al From remembers and has advice for the leftist losers of 2016:

Lessons From Our Last Comeback

Political memories tend to be short. As Democrats debate the causes and remedies for our recent losses, we sometimes forget that we’ve been here before. We would do well to remember the lessons of our last comeback as we plan our next one.

Between 1968 and 1988, Democrats lost five out of six presidential elections. It looked like the Republicans would have a permanent lock on the White House. We didn’t just lose the Electoral College, we lost 49 states—twice.

It had become painfully clear that we were trying to sell a product the American people did not want to buy. No amount of money, technology, or campaign strategy or tactics could reverse our losses. We needed new ideas. We needed to change our message.

President Bill Clinton and the New Democrats offered new ideas that fueled our party’s political comeback. That insurgent effort retooled the party’s message. [snip]

As Democrats plot our comeback, once again, there’s far too much talk about demographics, strategies and tactics and far too little focus on what we stand for. I believe our core problem is that too many Americans are not buying what we’re selling. It’s time to modernize our message once again. [snip]

First, honor core Democratic principles; don’t abandon them.

The New Democrat core principles—opportunity, responsibility, community—reconnected our party to its first principles and grandest traditions. [snip]

Second, grow the private economy. [snip]

Third, remember the forgotten middle class. [snip]

Fourth, reclaim the mantle of reform. [snip]

Fifth, close the national security gap. [snip]

Sixth, challenge the status quo with bold ideas. [snip]

Seventh, ask Americans to give something back to their country.

The problem for Al From is the left hates those prescriptions. The bigger problem is the left of 2016 has nothing left but the delusion that they really won and Trump really lost. The biggest problem, as in all addictions and flights from reality is that you have to admit you have a problem before you can be cured and restored to good health.

Al From’s prescriptions for a return to victory are really descriptions of how Donald J. Trump won – Make America Great Again is #7, Trump is #6, national security #5, reform #4, middle class #3, #2 is Trump’s jobs-jobs-jobs, and Trump is the one honoring what used to be “Democratic principles”. Al From is describing the Trump agenda not the lunatic party of Obama. Hillary Clinton embraced Barack Obama and turned herself into the Obama Third Term, abandoned the Clinton Coalition to Donald J. Trump, and thereby deservedly lost. That’s reality, not the delusion excuses so embraced by Hillary voters on the left.

That’s where things stand as the Electoral College prepares to meet and proclaim Donald J. Trump President-Elect. Obama Dimocrats find the Hopium of 2008 is not strong enough to overcome reality. So new, stronger drugs, CrackBarackaine are prescribed. Michelle Obama is mainlining CrackBarackaine and proving she is “hopeless”.



Michelle Obama fresh from being rescued from a frozen Canadian lake went on the bovine Oprah show to declare herself, as we all suspected, “hopeless”:

Michelle Obama fed her husband’s feud with Donald Trump on Friday as she gave a gloomy description of the hopeless climate his election win has created.

The First Lady used her final interview in the White House to tell Oprah Winfrey that a ‘grown up’ should be in charge of the country.

Looking forward to president-elect Trump’s looming inauguration, she said even though hope was lost, it was necessary to move on.

Now we’re feeling what not having hope feels like. Hope is necessary,’ she said in her first direct response to the November 9 election result.

Mrs Obama’s remarks come within hours of her husband’s announcement Russian hackers interfered with the election to help his successor. [snip]

In her interview with Oprah, the First Lady said the president needs to be someone ‘who can say to you in times of crisis and turmoil: “hey, it’s gonna be ok”‘.

She said she was assured her husband had achieved his goal of setting a hope-fueled agenda because of the contrasting mood brought by Trump’s victory.

‘Your husband’s administration, everything, the election, was all about hope. Do you think that this administration achieved that?’ asked Winfrey.

In a lengthy reply, Mrs Obama said calmly: ‘Yes. I do. Because we feel the difference now.

Now, we’re feeling what not having hope feels like. Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept.

‘What else do you have if you don’t have hope?’

In a glowing assessment of her husband’s tenure, Mrs Obama likened him to the calming parent of the panicked toddler nation.

‘Our children respond to crisis the way they see us respond. You know, it’s like the toddler bumps his head on the table and they look up at you to figure out whether it hurts and if you’re like (gasp) “oh my god” they’re crying but if you’re like “you know what, babe it’s OK”…

‘And I feel that way about the nation, I feel that Barack has been that for the nation in ways that people will come to appreciate.



This is not a nation of toddlers and pajama boys and girls. Hope is not policy. Hope is not achievement.

Barack Obama’s failures, which we predicted in 2007, are explained vividly by Michelle Obama in this bizarre Eichenwaldian interview. No, Moose, this is not a nation of toddlers in need of safety zones, play dough, cuddly toys and delusions. No, Moose, false hope and chump change are not a formula for success for anyone other than a flim-flam con man.

Michelle Obama and her Hopium addict squirrelly husband are hopeless. Obama Dimcrats are unable to move on as they take drugs, ingest alcohol, and invent ever more complex delusions to explain away the disaster we all saw back in 2007.

On Monday, December 19, Donald J. Trump will be elected President by the Electoral College in the real world, not the delusional drug dens of Obama Dimcrats.

Nasty Moose and other Obama Dimcrats are hopeless – but real Americans are happy and full of real hope for real change!!! January 20, 2017 cannot come fast enough.

    We’ll miss Zsa Zsa Gabor and the Gabor sisters (our favorite was Eva Gabor of Green Acres fame). Here’s Zsa Zsa’s great movie, the funny because it is so bad, 1958’s Queen of Outer Space.

    Zsa Zsa was possibly the first celebrity famous for being famous. But at least Zsa Zsa, unlike the Kardashians and modern day vampire celebrities had a certain comic self-awareness of being ludicrous. Good-bye Zsa Zsa you fabulous Queen of Outer Space.

    Great name too. Zsa Zsa.

    Time to face reality, Obama — Trump is going to be president

    So this is how it ends — in a whimper wrapped in self-pity and recriminations. With President Obama on the defensive at his final press conference and Hillary Clinton’s last campaign event resembling a wake, the Democratic Party is limping off the stage and into the political winter.

    It was supposed to sit atop the national power pyramid for decades, a new paradigm of liberals, progressives, the young, the old, the unions and blacks, Latinos, Muslims and Asians.

    The torch would be passed from Obama to Clinton, a liberal Supreme Court would vastly expand executive power and the regulatory state would enforce climate-change orthodoxy on all industry and elitist dictates on every American. Globalism would be the new patriotism.

    But a funny thing happened on the way to one-party dominance: The people who work for a living said no, hell no. Their revolt brings Donald Trump to the White House amid hopes of a revival of the economy and of the American spirit.

    Thoroughly beaten, the Dems are at their lowest point in nearly a century. From the White House to Congress to statehouses, they are on the outside looking in.

    Their punishment was well-deserved, as demonstrated by Obama and Clinton. Full of excuses and blaming everyone except themselves, their closing acts proved it is time for them to go.

    They have nothing new to offer, with their vision of the future limited to larger doses of the same failing medicine and their intolerance for disagreement showing they would never learn from their mistakes. Their bad ideas had run their disastrous course.

    Yet instead of analyzing what went wrong and trying to find new organizing principles, party leaders and activists are pointing fingers at the FBI and Russia, and engaging in a mad bid to overturn Trump’s Electoral College victory.

    Because they are doomed to fail, we could be witnessing the death throes of the Democratic Party as we know it. With Obama and the Clintons encouraging the attempted theft of an election they lost and failing to denounce intimidation and death threats against Trump electoral voters, most Americans have reason to consider the Dems a dead letter.

    Yet the final verdict on 2016 depends on Trump’s performance as president. If he delivers “jobs, jobs, jobs” and peace-through-strength abroad, he will forge a new governing consensus and remake the political landscape.

    While it’s too soon to know what exactly Trumpism stands for, it’s clear that many Republican orthodoxies and special-interest debts are being tossed overboard. His Cabinet nominees are incredibly accomplished individuals who come to their new jobs without the burdens of past Washington gridlock. If he can attract centrist-minded Dems, some of whom he is courting, Trump has a chance to build a pragmatic coalition that keeps faith with mainstream America.

    The obstacles, of course, are many. Much of the Islamic world is on fire and the great powers are moving ever closer to confrontation in Europe and Asia.

    Obama leaves office with Russia, Iran and China eating our lunch, with the Chinese theft of a Navy drone a goodbye insult. The unspeakable horror of Syria and the rise of Islamic State will forever be part of the 44th president’s legacy.

    So, too, will be domestic divisions, which grew more stark and bitter in the last eight years. We are now perilously close to a boil, and that, too, falls partially on Obama’s shoulders given his fear-mongering about Trump.

    Against that dark reality, it is reasonable to worry the nation is on the verge of a crack-up. But there is also a possibility that America is on the verge of a new greatness.

    It’s up to Trump. The ultimate outsider and a historic disrupter, he bears some responsibility for the polarization. But victory presents him with an opportunity to make government work for the people, instead of the other way around.

    He is off to a great start and must stay focused to avoid falling down the rabbit holes of petty disputes. America needs the change he promised and he needs to commit every ounce of his being into keeping that promise. If he succeeds, so will the nation. [snip]

    On her way out the door, First Lady Michelle Obama tossed off an ungracious remark, saying, “We’re feeling what not having hope feels like.”

    Actually, what she’s feeling is what half the country felt for most of the last eight years.

    Throw out the trash.

  5. Donald Trump does not drink. His brother the alcoholic told him not to. But there is more. Family members of alcoholics who want to save the alcoholic can most help them by practicing the 12 step program that the alcoholic needs to stay sober. The family group Alanon practices those principals. I would bet that DT learned the program to try to help his brother. And I think it has been an integral part of his success. The principals of Alcoholics Anonymous have helped Trump win.

    Hopium addicts and OPM addicts will get his cure.

  6. Admin has provided a summary, but the 12 Steps are will worth a full read.

    The heart of the suggested program of personal recovery is contained in Twelve Steps describing the experience of the earliest members of the Society:

    1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
    2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
    3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
    4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
    5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
    6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
    7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
    8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
    9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
    10.Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
    11.Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
    12.Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

  7. In all the analysis of Trumps personality, I have never seen the 12 step program take into consideration. But I am telling you that Trump has connected with a heck of a higher power to achieve the things he has in his life, including this election. Some people just don’t get it.

  8. Admin: all these theories and excuses are indicators of severe drug/alcohol abuse akin to the 2007/2008 Hopium crisis.

    Then you are sure, or are you, that you want the left to recover?

    Personally, I hope they do not.

    If you read the steps, I think it is plain that most of them will just not do it. And if they did, they would no longer be what they are.

  11. The Twelve Steps of AA have basically spread to the family (Alanon) and to NA (Narcotics Anonymous). They are also good for various mental disorders. Yes, Hillary lost her way and is in desperate need of a 12 Step Program. But I hear she is frequently getting drunk. Now BO is more of a cocaine kind of guy. And so goes the party.

  12. Lu4PUMA, you are right that Trump saw alcoholism up close and that had a profound effect on him. Trump saw and learned. In that interview with the TMZ gossip guy Trump stated that he did fear having the alcoholism gene and that he therefore stayed away from stimulants, even from coffee.

    The moral of the story for today is that in order to overcome a problem of any sort, you first must admit there is a problem. The Obama Dims don’t want to admit they have a problem. They have excuses of every imaginable sort to blame. That’s why they won’t recover.

    The Democratic Party, as the Al From excerpt explains, was in a terrible state of denial until Bill Clinton came along. Bill Clinton then took on the party leadership and told the white working class and blacks generally that he would be fair to all – that was the Sista Soulja moment. Bill Clinton in 1992 became the real man from Hope and Change candidate in order to win against Perot and Bush.

    As to the 12 steps, we never really read them. But they are good. Where most of today’s idiot “liberals/progressives” (we don’t mean classic liberals who have nothing to do with the totalitarians of today who call themselves “liberals/progressives”) disagree with the 12 steps is the reliance on “God”. That is really foolish.

    The “God” of the 12 steps is not a deity necessarily. The 12 steps seem to say that you should “know thyself” and know your weaknesses. Our hero Shakespeare says as much in more beautiful language.

    The 12 steps are rather common sense advice. “Don’t drink something stronger than you are.” “Avoid traps.” “Don’t bite more than you can chew.” “Be active in activities healthy for your mind and body.” “Don’t do stupid stuff.” “If you fail, get up, try again.” “Don’t blame others, take personal responsibility.” Lot of good advice is just common sense.

    Obama Dims have no common sense.

  13. I think “keep it simple” is one of best sayings of AA.We complicate life on so many levels.
    Being honest and making amends as quickly as possible as long as it will not hurt the other party.
    It’s amazing how healing “I’m sorry” is…

  14. Young Turks on election night is our favorite. Sample:

    Ben Mankiewicz should stick to TCM and never appear on Turkey show.

    Our election night coverage was the best however. Alcina and her candles will always blaze in our memory.

    The agnostic has a chapter in the Big Book of AA. The point being that and alcoholic could name a chair in their kitchen as their higher power and get better advise than what is coming from their alcoholic brain. Yes, even a progressive can recover.

    Drunken Hillary and loaded BO versus sober Trump. To really appreciate the dynamics of that you need to know the 12 steps and read the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.

    Trump is a smart man to know not to touch the stuff but take the program. There is real personal power there.

    BREAKING NEWS: Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor – best known for having nine husbands – has died of a heart attack aged 99

    Zsa Zsa Gabor died at age 99 on Sunday after suffering a heart attack
    She is survived by her ninth husband, Frederic von Anhalt, whom she married in 1986
    Gabor had dealt with a number of health troubles after being involved in a car accident in 2002
    Her former spouses include hotel businessman Conrad Hilton and Oscar-winning actor George Sanders
    Gabor’s only child, Francesca, whose father was Conrad Hilton, passed away in 2015
    The actress starred in films such as The Girl in the Kremlin, Queen of Outer Space and Moulin Rouge

    Hungarian actress and longtime socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor has passed away at the age of 99.

    The first famous for being famous American star suffered a heart attack and died surrounded by her loved ones at home on Sunday.

    Her husband, Frederic von Anhalt told AFP that Gabor didn’t die alone. ‘Everybody was there. She didn’t die alone,’ he said while choking back sobs. [snip]

    ‘She is fighting right now and she wants to move on. She wants to live,‘ her 72-year-old husband said of his wife at the time of her February hospitalization.

    ‘She squeezes my hand, she kisses. She is drinking water, she has ice cream. She wants to move on.

    People don’t want to move on — they give up, they totally give up,’ he added. ‘[But] she wants to move on. [snip]

    ‘She never told me, ‘Let me go’ or ‘I don’t want to live anymore’, things like that… like people do when they get to an age like that. She never did it. [snip]

    She became a Hollywood sex symbol – fueled largely by her candid comments on her colorful love life.

    ‘Men have always liked me and I have always like men,’ she told Life magazine in 1951.

    I am a marvelous housekeeper,’ she once said. ‘Every time I leave a man, I keep his house.

    And when asked ‘How many husbands have you had?’ she was quoted as saying, ‘You mean other than my own?’

    Lots of pictures at link including with Donald J. Trump and Ivana Trump.

    We didn’t know she married the great George Sanders. We would love to hear stories about Porfirio Rubirosa, who’s endowments gave rise to a steak being named after him.

    In life we never paid much attention to Zsa Zsa, but we must say that we do think she is a great housekeeper.

    You might like The Variety of Religious Experience by William James(Henry James brother)
    When Bill W was near death he read the tome. AA grew from his awakening through the book. It’s dry but a good read.
    1991 I was living in the Lower East Side. I got caught up in the art world. I was a kid from nowhere hanging out with artists. I thought heroin might be fun. I only snorted for two weeks. I quit on my own. Only two weeks, but it was hell. I sat down in front of Tower Records just shaking. I could not walk. I didn’t actually like heroin. I like getting drunk but for me there is some control. Water, coffee, a brisk walk. Junk you board and off to la la land. I don’t like pot for same reason. I had been snorting horse with Jean Michelle Basquats ex. I knew it was not for me, but withdrawal is hell. I was waiting tables off Washington Square. Everynight for months I walked to Midnite Madness on Houston and Verrick. 24 hour AA meetings. I guess I can say Lou Reed was there since he’s dead. Lots of celebs and oddly kids. High school. I never touched dope again. It was a silly whim of a child occupying an adults body. I logged in hundreds of hours. I got to know all these disparate people. A real education. Heroin was not my thing but withdrawal is nasty. I needed to be around others. AA gave me something to hold on to. Been almost 30 years. I was so lucky. Well aware.
    Funny theJulian Schnabel film about Basquiat is bull shit. His amalgamation girl friend was the one that turned me on to heroin. She is a doctor. A shrink. I was commuting from Philly to Hunter College in Manhattan. I took NJ Transit and Septa. I had two jobs in Philly but I was broke. Every morning I bought a personal supreme pizza from Pizza Hut. I divided it up to eat for the day. I met Suzanne in the cafeteria. I was a gay guy in love with his female best friend slash roommate in Philly. I totally used studying Lit in another city to break away. Of course I met the lover of a self destructive artist in the cafeteria. She did go to med school. Psychiatrist practicing in NYC. Unrelated but one of my roommates in Philly was Holly Margolies. She was born to a GI and a poor Vietnamese mom. Her brother married Chelsea Clinton. She died. Cancer. I think it started as ovarian but spread. Her dad went to federal prison but I believe her family did a lot of good. The house keeper and drivers kids went to same schools as the other kids. I am a bit addled as they seemed blue dogs. Her op ed defending ocare was crazy. I actually like her. But she went crazy left. I assume powers that be thought far left was winning. I think if not for The Donald they might have one. There is nothing that would have made me vote for Yeb! 44,000 thousand PA residents said no to Hillary. Maybe more than that. I do not believe Philly numbers are real. Can’t be. 9 out of ten. No way. Germantown? South Philly? No . Same here in Allegheney County. Pittsburgh is the seat. She won it by insane margins. Not the burbs. Do not buy it. 98% in one district . Horse shit. Look at LA. Turn out was insane where illegals live.

  18. Exactly what is sending the Democratic progressives and GOPe into this meltdown? And what the hell does Vladimir Putin have to do with it that makes him the biggest meanie of all time? Why is Trump’s election rather than say Jeb the bribed or Bernie the slow witted crank winning a shock election sending mass hysteria not just through DC but through capitals of most of the rest of the world? Exactly why is the non-election of the Hillary cabal so unthinkable that they are acting like the earth was hit by an asteroid?

    In April a little thing happened in the UK called Brexit. PM Cameron being a total globalist stooge set it up but miscalculated and had a outrageously lying public to deal with. Being a smallish country and totally subsumed in the EU borg it was regarded as an annoyance and something that would be beaten out of the Brits with some time and a heavy enough hand. Kind of like fascists thought about it in WWII. Before that some guy called Orban in Hungary refused to take unlimited numbers of migrants who shit all over his train stations and built a fence. Some other little nothing countries in eastern Europe squawked also but are in so deep with German bankers owning the countries they were slapped down pretty fast but they built fences too. Fences are a no-no with open border globalists. Anti-migrant-ism grew in the public as racism and selfishness accusations of not handing over their pensions and half of GDP to migrant hordes. And who was accused of causing this in Berlin and Brussels? Putin. The reasons for this were quite creative and rather bizarre but they couldn’t say outright he is not playing nice with globalism.

    Who wants Hillary’s main money man to stand for trial for international crimes? Putin. Who runs globalist oligarchs out of Russia (or kills them)? Putin. Who screwed up the run on the Arab Spring oil grab toppling Mid-east governments stopping it in Syria? Putin.

    Before the election of TRUMP the only anti-globalist of any stature and with a military was Putin. He was a major pain in the butt to globalists and they were working like crazy to box him in. Orban is, well, a Hungarian and acts like one in that he is smart and difficult but poor. Brexit was skillfully stalled by installing the old tool May and someone had the bright idea of using a loon in Scotland called Sturgeon to play off May and make May look like a Brexit hawk. She is a globalist patsy and poseur installed to drag her big feet. The globalist EU also wants the UK ready made military but Brexit has complicated that move.

    The Democrats, progressives, globalists, and their flunkies are doing EXACTLY the same thing that the EU, Remainers, globalists, open border NGO’s did (and are still trying and failing in Europe) in Europe. Exactly. Trump and Putin are interchangeable in the globalist bugaboo lexicon. Putin is a big meanie. He won’t open his borders and hand over Russia’s energy. Or army. Or air force.

    The election of Trump is like an asteroid hitting the globalism world. Not only does it stop the globalism march in the America’s continents, it gives Putin an ally. It really is lining up along the lines of WWII. And Merkel is fascist with the crazy globalist stuff. Hollande is Vichy France giving up to be overrun. Greece is Germany’s whipping boy. AGAIN. Germany is again spending themselves into bankruptcy with alarmingly stupid policies. This is the third time. WWI, WWII and Merkel! Will they ever learn?

    The screams from Obama’s CIA of “Russia did it!” are very amusing. The globalists started it. Putin slowed it. And Trump is going to try very hard to stop it. The tedious and idiotic plots of Soros/Hillary/Obama to prevent a President Trump are standard operating procedure from a not very bright cabal of “intellectuals”. This isn’t about personalities but rather ideologies, economics and geopolitics. Globalism vs anti-globalism. Look! Squirrel! is what they are reduced to playing. Lucky Trump. And Vladimir. The Great Game continues.

  19. AA and the 12 Steps have saved many lives, 3 in my family alone.

    It is a simple plan on how to live life and it works if you work it…keep it simple,

  20. 12 steps don’t work for everyone. There are two big alternatives, Women for Sobriety (telling women they are powerless is antithetical to what many women need to learn) and SMART Recovery. I always like to tell people about all three, so they can find what works for them individually.

  21. eastern Europe squawked also but are in so deep with German bankers owning the countries they were slapped down pretty fast
    ———
    Globalist bankers

    “Give me control of a nation’s money supply

    And I care not who makes its laws”

    —Baron Rothchilde

    Soros came out of that family cabal

    And after his dalliance with the London School of Economics, i.e. Karl Popper (The Open Society theology, aimed at destroying the existing order in concert with the Frankfurter school which emigarted here as well, to infect and corrupt our institutions of higher learning

    Soros was exported to the US in 1957 and went to work for a Rothchilde bank in New York which gave him his start

    What’s ironic is that the City of London, aka the Rothschilde estate is, as much as New York or Berlin the epicenter of globalist banking interests, and yet they got their ass handed to them, just like the globalist stooge Cameron did.

  22. Ftankly, it is the alliance between globalist bankers and Silicon Valley that worries me most, when it comes to the loss of liberty.

  23. Lorac,
    The 12 Steps will work for everyone if you work them and the reason behind powerlessness has nothing to do with being a woman or man, it’s about control and pride, which will keep you drunk, stone and dead.
    That’s why AA and the 12 Steps have saved millions of lives, including women , for free, for nearly a hundred years.

  24. Peter Thiel is on our side. Lets see how much headway he is able to make in dissuading those Bluebeards from their wicked wiked ways. Talking to their northern variant in this town, meaning Gates and Bezos is like talking to a wall on such matters. I hope Trump applies the anti trust laws to what Jeff is doing, because with his bold moves at vertical integration, he is fast becoming a distruptive force in our town and our society. I have regaled you with those stories, before, and will not repeat them, save to say that between his robots, drones, low skilled labor, visas for foreign workers he is the living embodiment of the doctrine of creative destruction which leaves him with all the chips and everyone else with no jobs. His ability to drive down prices and his predatory taxes and his route around the tax laws, thanks to our benighted Supreme Court is a snare and a delusion.

  25. Video of the assassination in Turkey (don’t watch it if you don’t like violence. The video is not bloody but it is disturbing and you do see the Ambassador as he dies):

    On the plus side, the killer has a nice outfit on, not the usual rags. It’s a shallow observation, but we do like a sharp dresser.

  26. Electoral College, unloved but everpresent, set to anoint Trump

    The electoral college is unloved?

    What the fuck does love, or the lack thereof have to do with it.

    It is about the anoint Trump?

    Obviously, he does not understand our system.

    Therefore he needs to follow the time honored maxim

    Keep your mouth shut and be suspected of being a fool

    Is better than opening your clap trap and removing all doubt.

  27. With 3 delegates from Montana, 5 from Nebraska, 6 in Iowa, 10 in Missouri and 38 in Texas remaining to be counted, CNN will have to use magical numbers.

  28. Just updated. 251 for Trump and 118 for Hillary. Nineteen to go and Texas hasn’t even released its results for its 38 delegates.

  29. love this one too. 😀

    Yup, thought so, it’s the fat lady. She’s warming up to sing!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

  30. Gonzo, no one is trying to disrespect AA, I understand 3 in your family benefitted. There’s a whole literature out there I think you’re not aware of. Nothing wrong with different strokes for different folks….

  31. Lorac,

    I am more than aware…I worked detox and rehab for years. The people with the issues with AA clearly had other issues.

  32. 304 votes for Trump, 163 for Hillary and 6 for others so far. Only Nevada and California remain for Hillary, but at this point, who cares.

  33. Update: It’s over for Trump! 🙂 🙂 🙂 He’s now President-Elect Donald J. Trump. The Electoral College has voted and opposition to Donald J. Trump has proven to be an illusion/delusion/hallucination. Blame it on Hoaxium!

    In 2008 Barack Obama supporters snorted Hopium and believed in their tin plated squirrel king who has led the Dim Party to historic losses without the aid of Putin or other bogeymen fictions. Post-election 2016 the losers snort Hoaxium, a powerful Hopium derivative and hallucinogenic. Such is the power of 2016 Hoaxium that millions of dollars were given by Hillary Clinton supporters to Dr. Jill Stein who ceaselessly attacked Hillary Clinton during the election. The Hoaxium led to millions of dollars wasted in recounts instead of electoral efforts in the future. The Hoaxium led to deliriums that Republican activist electors would repudiate themselves and their life work to elect someone else. Hoaxium is a strong drug.

    The results of these Hoaxium election tremens is that Donald J. Trump gained votes during the recounts and today, as in the recounts, Hillary Clinton lost more electoral votes – four in Washington State mostly given instead to RINO Republican Colin Powell – Hillary loses again to a black man. Trump? He’s not tired of winning and neither are his 304 electors and millions of supporters.

    ——————————————–

  34. Time for the Democrats, Hollywood celebrities for Hillary and snowflakes to hit the bottle booze and antidepressants!😆

  35. The Berlin Christmas Massacre was a peaceful and tolerant mass murder that had absolutely NOTHING whatsoever to do with Islam.

  36. Donald needs the best security there is, that includes double checking everyone around him or that can get near him…

    just look at Turkey today…god forbid one ‘mole’ or ‘turncoat’ or creep has Donald’s trust for the wrong reason…

    I could not be happier for today’s results but all those crazies, especially dim losers want a part of him…

    sorry to see Bill so bitter, expected more from him of all people…

    I have never been so disappointed in Hillary as she goes out without any bit of grace and did not even have the decency to call off her hounds that were sending death threats and hate mail to the electors…

    she turned out to be the biggest whiner and hypocrite of all of them…guess she inspired them by the ungracious and rude example she set…

  37. Thank you all for posting the world’s current happenings for those of us part time posters, though I am no less committed to MAGA.

    Only about 1 in 10 alcoholics sustain any significant recovery. When they join AA their chances rise to 50/50.

    When I work my program, things come together for me in a way I could never force them to fit. Admitting powerlessness leads to empowerment. The program is physical, mental and spiritual. And the more you give it way the more you keep it.

    Yes, the alcoholic and addict should try other things, but then, they should just get with the program.

  39. “fox just reported that Donald had dinner with Carlos Slim”
    *****
    Can’t imagine that Sulzberger and Banquet are very happy about that diner date.

  40. lol all I can tell you guys is that different people respond to different methods, and there is empirical evidence to that effect.

    And 50% is way too high – and are you talking about 6 month rates, 1 year rates, 10 year rates of sobriety….? (it’s rhetorical) AA does not let independent researchers study their program’s success, so the only numbers for AA are self-reported. I do know that 80 something percent of people in AA drop out in the first year.

    But I’m not against AA – it does help people. I just think it’s – well, rigid – to insist that there aren’t other methods that work better for other people…. there are a ton of people out there whose sobriety contradicts your beliefs that AA is best for everyone….

  41. The Berlin terrorist was an Afghan refugee accepted by Merkel. But it was just a crash and Merkel will probably be re-elected.

  43. The previous video created above @ 12-18 has been updated today, 12-19. The video states Obama had Congress pass a Bill last Thursday (12-8-16) forbidding any US president having anything to do cooperating with Russia. This is about crippling Trump’s efforts aligning with Russia for the elimination of ISIS.. The Bill is fraught with crazy stipulations i.e. giving ISIS our Tax Payer $$$ and missiles for shooting down planes anywhere in the world. Obama working in tandem with CiA. Makes my blood boil… Sickening !!

    Afaik- Anonymous has been truthful with his revelations… My money’s on Trump..

    Anonymous: CIA Coup Against Trump UPDATE

  44. Another CIA coup? I’m still waiting for the Counter-Coup, in response to the Clinton Secret-Coup, which was supposed to occur the week before Election Day. In the Counter-Coup, Obama was supposedly ordered by the CIA to “Stand Down”, while the CIA arrested Hillary Clinton and indicted Loretta Lynch. Or something. I must have missed the actual occurrence of those events. Glad we’re on to the next one.

  45. The murder of the Russian ambassador in Ankara is rather strange in that Turkish/Russian way. Firstly it was recorded. Secondly it was a policeman who did it. Thirdly it was done in the middle of the clean up operation by Russia and Syria of northern Syria to rid the country of as much ISIS as possible and northern Syria is heavy ethnically Turkish since about WWI.

    No media is acknowledging that the murderer went on an ISIS rant over the dying corpse of the ambassador. Not only did he go Allah Ackbar he also did the ISIS salute of the forefinger held up and preached a fairly typical hate sermon. He also allowed his crimes to be recorded for full propaganda value and dissemination. The Turks did not take the camera phones away from the other hostages recording it all so they are fully complicit.

    Turkish jihadi boy’s mother and sisters were picked up immediately by the Turks to be “questioned”. Erdogan better pick up his uncles, cousins, girlfriend, etc also before the Russians kill every one of them. And they will even if it takes ten years and the Turks have forgotten all about them.

    The west’s non-reaction to this diplomatic murder shows how degraded the current situation is. Obama yawned on the golf course. The EU slapped some more sanctions on Russia, and the media did their thing with ignoring the blatant ISIS behavior of this loon. This will serve to infuriate Putin more but he is known for patience and only has 30 odd days to put up with Obama and the rest of the globalists until the pendulum starts swinging. Trump’s statement indirectly addresses this diplomatic murder by stipulating that Islam is targeting Christians and their culture (this murder was in an art gallery) by attacking German Christmas markets. This of course is what Obama studiously ignores. Hopefully the cultural war by Islam against the west will be engaged soon.

  46. Admin,

    Just one other note on the left as alcoholics. Being an alcoholic is considered a self declared thing, sort of like a person decides what their religion is. Without that self declaration, the left would be considered just a bunch of drunks.

  47. Snuck over to Uppity women to see how they are handling everything
    ..not so much…

    It’s Bernier fault now, he didn’t want to educate his supporters?

    And of course, Trump, Corey and Putin are all in this together.

    And there is love for Obama by Uppity herself..
    My my my.
    Saw some old posters, still drinking hillary Kool aid..

  48. In fact, truth to tell, the CIA has been heavily involved in the identification, nurturing. shielding and promotion of candidates in our political system ever since the Kennedy assassination. Incontrovertible evidence of their involvement in the assassination of JFK has been uncovered by good historians and researchers. Bush Sr. son of the Connecticut senator was a CIA man, ever since his daddy, a Senator from Connecticut, put his arm around Nixon and saw to it that he was appointed head of that agency. After he was expelled from Oxford for what might euphemistically as date rape, he worked for them spying on anti war radicals abroad. Obama’s mother worked for the CIA in Indonesia and elsewhere and Zeib Brezneki and Soros–the dynamic duo who toppled governments in eastern Europe after the fall of the Soviet Union took him under their wing. He more than any other former president was literally, identified, nurtured, shielded, and promoted by that agency. So if anyone thinks the only reason he had what amounted to as the protection of the ring because he was black is missing a much larger piece of the puzzle. Kaine was in the Peace Corps, and while there worked with the CIA and death squads, according to what I have been told, and the Peace Corps was merely a cover. And now we see Brennan, and no less Morrell, interfering in our politics. Granted, this is hearsay. But it comes from people who were, to paraphrase the words of Dean Atcheson, present at the creation, etc. Taken together, their testimony is corroborative, and what it reveals is an agency which is out of control and determined to rule the world as former Director James Woolsey secretly told Trump. Steve Piecnnch, a former undersecretary who lead CIA missions, has testified that the top 1/3 of the CIA must be removed. The CIA, taken together with global bankers and big data constitute an unholy alliance against the American People. At one time the FBI served as a check and balance, along with the judiciary. But we know now, pretty much that the FBI and John Roberts have been corrupted and co-opted into the fold. Only the military now stands in their way. Thus, it is hardly surpising that the military was the ones who begged Trump to run, or that after he was elected, military men would predominate in his cabinet–in key departments such as Defense, Homweland Security, Director of the CIA defense. They seek to defend the CIA, while the CIA aka Catholics in Action are bent on destoying it. Brennan needs to be held accountable. And the top 1/3 put out to pasture. Without question, they are as Woolsey described them when he offered his services to Trump, a danger to this nation and to the world.

  49. Correction: they–THE MILITARY are determined to save this country, while the CIA is bent on destroying it, in concert with the aforesaid parties.

  50. That Roberts fell through his ass on the Obamacare decision tends to define him in terms of character and the will/capacity to protect the constitution. Until that moment, he was understood to be a principled conservative, and up to that final week, law clerks reported that he was solidly in the Scalia camp, which was prepared to strike down that law. But in the end, he panicked and according to what I read at the time, Justice Kennedy tried to intervene, and so to speak talk him off the ledge, but to now avail. And then, years later, there was that Podesta email laughing at how they had squeezed Kennedy to do their bidding, whether through the threat of adverse publicity, foreshadowed by at least one article in NYT front page claiming that his legacy was at stake in that case, or something darker and more nefarious, as some have asserted, without sufficient evidence.

  51. I like this comment.

  53. I was thinking today about that annual Catholic Al Smith Charity Event in NYC that Hillary and Donald both attended and spoke at…the one that is supposed to be humourous but both Hillary and Donald got kind of mean and went off the reservation…

    c-span covered it and Donald exited fairly soon after it was over…but Hillary stayed on til the very end…she was beaming and holding court and all of the media was falling all over her…Couric, Nora O’Donald…all of them…including the men…hovering around her like she was at her coronation…she could not have been happier

    …you could not miss the feeling in the room that the media and Hillary believed she had this in the bag and would win the Presidency…

    fast forward to her current tantrums and lack of grace…she would rather have people shout out death threats and do anything to keep her dream alive than to graciously act like the adult I believed she was and to tell her supporters to knock it off and try an attempt at unity…

    tonight i was listening to the radio and it was being said that Hillary floated she might run for NY mayor and did not get any interest and now she is floating that she will run again in 2020

    …the reason given for this is that all the donations at CGI have dried up…if there is no influence and no power in govt then the donations stop pouring in…so she needs to keep her name out there to keep influence up for sale and pouring into the “foundation”

    Bill and Hill please go out as gracious adults who care about our country…don’t go low…please…

  54. Merkelism and The Death of Europe

    Just as the West had been warned might happen this Christmas season, a likely Muslim terrorist has driven a huge lorry (LKW, in German parlance) into a crowd of holiday shoppers at one of the most important places in Berlin, killing at least twelve. While it’s still unclear exactly who was driving the truck — police apparently have been questioning the wrong suspect — no one will be surprised if this murderer turns out to be one of Angela Merkel’s imported Islamic soldiers, who slipped into the heart of central Europe under false pretenses, and now have opened up a new front in Islam’s war on Judeo-Christian civilization.

    In case you were looking for a motive, the generic name of the Advent markets in Germany and Austria is Christkindlmarkt — the “Christ-Child Market.”

    The latest example of spontaneous-combustion jihad — the politically correct media insists on calling the atrocity a “truck attack,” as if trucks were creatures of free will — echoes a similar incident in Nice, France, on July 14, a major French holiday. And yet, as usual, apologists for and western collaborators with Islam insisted that there was “no evidence” of a larger plot, or of “foreign involvement,” as if either of those things matter. For one thing, each “soldier of Allah” is an entity until himself; for another, the very presence of a million or more Muslims in a Christian country like Germany is all the evidence of foreign involvement we need

    That those million Muslims are in Germany is entirely the fault of the second-worst German chancellor of the past hundred years, the wretched Angela Merkel, whose colossal stupidity in falling for the “plight” of “refugees” will go down in history as the greatest civilizational error since the Trojans opened their gates to a giant horse stuffed full of Greeks. Whether from naivete, arrant stupidity, cultural inexperience with Islam or sheer malevolence toward a country she was raised to despise and betray, Merkel opened the borders of Germany in 2015 with the bold motto “wir shaffen das” (we can do it). In flooded an army of mostly young males of military age without the slightest interest in accommodating themselves or their rancid culture to western European cultural norms, but with rapine, exploitation and Islamic triumphalism foremost on their dark and savage minds.

    That Merkel — like all the politically correct liberals across the European Union who have brought Europe to its present low estate — could not see this coming speaks to the tyranny of cultural Marxism that imposed itself on the nation-states of Europe in the form of the EU: a form of compulsive national suicide, preached as the logical consequence of guilt over World War II and imposed using the stick of “racism” with which to beat a gullible public.

    Wir koennen das nicht schaffen. That this must be the end of Merkel and Merkelism should go without saying. Any decent human being, who has cost the lives of so many of her fellow citizens in order to believe in a wholly untenable view of the nature of Islam and of the Muslim “faith,” would have resigned in disgrace by now, offered all she had to make restitution to her victims, and then disappeared from history.

    But no — not Merkel and not the cultural leftist impulse she embodies. (That she is a “conservative” by German standards tells you all you need to know about the dearth of real conservatives across the Continent.) Until yesterday, the childless “Mutti” (Mama) Merkel has stubbornly clung to the idea of running for office again next year — and, amazingly, the polls have been in her favor. After being pulverized by the Americans and the Soviets during WWII and then split between west and east until 1989, when the Berlin Wall finally fell, Germans have had the piss and vinegar knocked out of them; Germany today is a land of effeminate men and brassy, childless women, with a political consensus that they should all put themselves out of their misery as quickly as possible by not having any more children.

  55. More drunken hoaxium related behaviors:

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-20/judge-releases-fbi-warrant-weiners-computer-left-blasts-lack-probable-cause-i-am-app

    Since November 8th, disaffected Democrats have tried and failed repeatedly to undo the 2016 Presidential election. First their was the failed recount effort launched by Jill Stein, an obvious front for the Clinton campaign, in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. Embarrassingly, that effort actually resulted in a wider margin of victory for Trump but not before Stein wasted $7 million raised from devastated Hillary supporters.

    Then there was the coordinated efforts of the White House, other prominent democrats and the mainstream media to turn the Electoral College against Trump, because Russia. Ironically, that effort too resulted in a wider margin of victory for Trump as only 2 electors refused to vote for him while 5 electors abandoned Hillary. Anyone else noticing a theme here?

    Now, with the Electoral College vote done and no other options left, the angry, demoralized dems have turned their fury toward the FBI with allegations that the warrant issued for Anthony Weiner’s computer did not “give rise to probable cause” which must therefore imply some nefarious collusion between James Comey, Trump and Putin.

    Per Bloomberg, attorney Randol Schoenberg sued for the warrant to be released and has since expressed that he is “appalled” by its contents which failed to present “probable cause.”

  56. About the Book–The Smear

    Ever wonder how politics turned into a take-no-prisoners blood sport? The New York Times bestselling author of Stonewalled pulls back the curtain on the shady world of opposition research and reveals the dirty tricks those in power use to influence your opinions.

    Behind most major political stories in the modern era, there is an agenda; an effort by opposition researchers, spin doctors, and outside interests to destroy an idea or a person. The tactic they use is the Smear. Every day, Americans are influenced by the Smear without knowing it. Paid forces cleverly shape virtually every image you cross. Maybe you read that Donald Trump is a racist misogynist, or saw someone on the news mocking the Bernie Sanders campaign. The trick of the Smear is that it is often based on some shred of truth, but these media-driven “hit pieces” are designed to obscure the truth. Success hinges on the Smear artist’s ability to remain invisible; to make it seem as if their work is neither calculated nor scripted. It must appear to be precisely what it is not.
    Veteran journalist Sharyl Attkisson has witnessed this practice firsthand. After years of being pitched hit jobs and puff pieces, she’s an expert at detecting Smear campaigns. Now, the hard-hitting investigative reporter shares her inside knowledge, revealing how the Smear takes shape and who its perpetrators are—including Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal and, most influential of all, “right-wing assassin turned left-wing assassin” (National Review) political operative David Brock and his Media Matters for America empire.

    Attkisson exposes the diabolical tactics of Smear artists, and their outrageous access to the biggest names in political media—operatives who are corrupting the political process, and discouraging widespread citizen involvement in our democracy.

  57. What Sharyl does not say is:

    Today, entire news networks, and the print media giants are all practitioners and devotees of “the smear”.

    CNN and NBC are pack leaders in this collective race to the bottom.

    That is why it is a fool’s errand to believe them, or to be influenced by them consciously or subliminally.

  58. foxyladi14 @ 11:20am

    “there are 3141 counties in the USA Trump won 3084, hillary won only 57, and that my friends is why we have an electoral college”

    Those numbers sound overwhelming and are being spread around the internet; however, there is no backup for those numbers provided in any of the articles. Associated Press numbers are 2,626 counties for Trump and 487 for Hillary. Still impressive for purposes of the EC argument.

  59. The elite and political class are now shifting from their victory plan of global domination to Operation Shift Blame for the global economic collapse.

    Assume crash positions.

    But he didn’t just predict their win at the polls, but that these new signposts of the conservative, populist uprising would be used by the elite – who allowed these electoral changes – in order to scapegoat the coming financial collapse.

    As things continue to play out, he has been so far proven stunningly accurate, and should not be readily ignored.

    Will Trump’s presidency be better understood in hindsight as what has already been dubbed: ‘Operation Shift Blame’?

    The numbers are probably still changing. The only way you could assess the accuracy of what is reported is to compile them yourself and consider the validity of your own sources. One thing is plain. ALL of Hillary’s popular vote margin and more came from California where there are virtually no voter ID laws and a huge illegal population. Hillary was definitely elected President of California. The rest of the country elected Trump.

  64. Gonzo, it is so much the way he operates, that to restrain him would be like asking Trump not to be Trump. Moreover, it is the way he sets up the establishment and destroys the myths and grating condescension. Its the kind of thing that makes big media heads explode, in the moment, and later elicits a quiet admission that he was right. Here are some examples, not necessarily in tweets, but statements that are part and parcel of the same strategy. It is the time honored game of luring your opponents into a box canyon, trapped by their own hyperbolic reactions and then annihating them.
    ——

    Trump has a habit of offering off-the-cuff unconventional observations — often unsubstantiated by verbal footnotes and in hyperbolic fashion. Then he is blasted for ignorance and recklessness by bipartisan grandees. Only later, and quietly, he is often taken seriously, but without commensurate public acknowledgement. A few more examples. Candidate Trump blasted the “free-loading” nature of NATO, wondered out loud why it was not fighting ISIS or at least Islamic terrorism, and lamented the inordinate American contribution and the paucity of commensurate allied involvement. Pundits called that out as heresy, at least for a few weeks — until scholars, analysts, and politicos offered measured support for Trump’s charges. Europeans, shocked by gambling in Casablanca, scrambled to assure that they were upping their defense contributions and drawing the NATO line at the Baltic States. President-elect Trump generated even greater outrage in the aftermath of the election when he took a call from the Taiwanese president. Pundits exploded. Foreign policy hands were aghast. Did this faker understand the dimensions of his blunder? Was he courting nuclear war? Trump shrugged, as reality again intruded: Why sell billions of dollars in weaponry to Taiwan if you cannot talk to its president? Are arms shipments less provocative than receiving a single phone call? Why talk “reset” to the thuggish murderous Castro brothers but not to a democratically elected president? Why worry what China thinks, given that it has swallowed Tibet and now created artificial islands in the South China Sea, in defiance of all maritime custom, law, and tradition? Two weeks later after the call, analysts — true to the pattern — meekly agreed that such a phone call was hardly incendiary. Perhaps, they mused, it was overdue and had a certain logic. Perhaps it had, after all, sent a valuable message to China that the U.S. may now appear as unpredictable to China as China has appeared to the U.S. Perhaps the Taiwan call had, after all, sent a valuable message to China that the U.S. may now appear as unpredictable to China as China has appeared to the U.S. More recently, Trump asked in

  65. Venus,

    Clearly you haven’t read most of his tweets as I have. When they are informational, great, but there are many that are tit for tat. He hurt himself tweeting with the Ms Universe fiasco for a period of time and although he recovered, his family literally took away his phone at night for a few weeks.
    I have my opinion and I don’t have to “prove” anything to you.

  66. What a surprise!!

    A Mississippi man arrested in the burning of an African-American church that was spray-painted with the words “Vote Trump” is a member of the congregation, the church’s bishop said.
    Andrew McClinton, 45, of Leland, Mississippi, was charged Wednesday with first degree arson of a place of worship, said Warren Strain, spokesman for the Mississippi Department of Public Safety. McClinton is African-American.
    McClinton was arrested in Greenville, where Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before the presidential election.
    Hopewell Bishop Clarence Green said McClinton is a member of the church. Green said he didn’t know about the arrest until he was called by The Associated Press.
    “This is the first I have heard of it,” said Green, who said he was attending to other church duties and didn’t have time for a longer interview.
    It was not immediately clear whether McClinton is represented by an attorney.
    An investigation continues, but a state official said politics did not appear to be the reason for the fire.
    “We do not believe it was politically motivated. There may have been some efforts to make it appear politically motivated,” Mississippi Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney, who is also the state fire marshal, told AP.
    Greenville is a Mississippi River port city of about 32,100 people, and about 78 percent of its residents are African-American. While it’s not unusual for people of different racial backgrounds to work and eat lunch together, local residents say the congregations at most churches remain clearly identifiable by race.
    Hopewell was founded in 1905 in the heart of an African-American neighborhood, and the congregation now has about 200 members. While some walls of the beige brick church survived the fire, the empty windows are boarded up and church leaders have said the structure will likely be razed. Rebuilding could take months.
    After the fire, Hopewell congregants began worshipping in a chapel at predominantly white First Baptist Church of Greenville. The Hopewell bishop, Clarence Green, said last month the generosity of First Baptist demonstrates that “unlimited love” transcends social barriers. James Nichols, senior pastor at First Baptist, said the Hopewell members are welcome to stay as long as they need a home.
    Greenville is in Washington County, a traditional Democratic stronghold in a solidly Republican state. In the Nov. 8 presidential election, Republican Donald Trump easily carried Mississippi, but Democrat Hillary Clinton received more than twice the vote of Trump in Washington County — 11,380 for Clinton to 5,244 for Trump.

  67. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said President Obama’s legacy will disappear within a year of him leaves office:

    “What you’re watching is a man who realizes all of a sudden 90 percent of his legacy is going to disappear because he didn’t do the hard work of passing legislation,” Gingrich said.
    “Starting the opening day when Trump starts to repeal all these executive orders, it’s going to be like one of those balloons that deflates and down to a core to 10 or 15 percent of what he originally did,” Gingrich continued. “The rest is all going to disappear within a year.”

    In the age of Trump, what’s a bot to do, as their light of love fades into oblivion?

    Well, they can serenade him with this torch song:

  68. Obama has run into the idiot’s conundrum. He is being bitten in the ass by what he preaches. As a globalist he interfered openly in other nation states with his ideas, demands, blarney and agenda. The UK was threatened with “back of the line” trade, Assad with “red lines” and arms sent to jihadist rebels, and sanctions on Putin. But as a globalist he wants the entire world to be a big blob of open borders, trade “deals” and eco-governance run out of power centers like Brussels and DC and openly demands in how everything everywhere is done. If he can do this so can others in the future of the US specifically in its elections. This of course includes defeating him and his ideology of progressivism and globalism and using our legal, social, and election systems by simply making full information available rather than censored. The massive butthurt and blame over the very idea that he was served his own medicine, and defeated by someone infinitely better at it, is his final act of impotence and hypocrisy. That is if it is even true that Putin was involved in any machinations of the 2016 election. Cause and effect. What an idiot.

    Trump’s tweets are a strategy. I would imagine they are somewhat like his negotiating. He keeps his enemies (or non-partners) off balance, changes the subject, throws out information, makes high opening bids or offers, injects humor, makes predictions (he is extraordinarily well informed so these seemingly off the wall prognostications are based on real business network intelligence, decades of intensive business research, and common sense), and he sets the pace or agenda. He has everyone chasing him which is what he wants. He is so dominant that a sitting president has just whined, run off on his last tax payer financed vacation, and given up except for some spite moves. Stories about his family taking away his phone at night are just that stories. HE decided to dial it back because the shock value was waning or he wanted a rest. If his children took his phone he LET them. The obnoxious “in your face stuff” and semi-vulgarities was to de-sensitive everyone over the extreme PC shackles placed on everyone and in public discourse over very important national and global problems and it is working. It makes us uncomfortable and it is supposed to because it is psychological in nature. Trump has taken control and there have already been massive changes. He uses whatever mass communication tools which are available.

  70. Trump has announced Carl Icahn will be a special adviser on “trade deals”. Icahn will really advise on the final phases/mop up of the hostile takeover which is his specialty. Lucky Trump.

  73. More on Egypt stopping the UN vote on Israel.

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2610236

    Egyptian officials scrapped a plan to proceed with a United Nations Security Council vote condemning the construction of Israeli settlements, following pushback from Israeli officials and President-elect Trump.

    “Egypt requested the vote’s delay to permit them to conduct an additional meeting of the Arab League’s foreign ministers to work on the resolution’s wording,” Haaretz reported, citing Western diplomats. But the vote might be postponed “indefinitely,” according to the report.

    Israeli settlement construction drew condemnation from the State Department earlier this year, in addition to the rebukes of more customary critics, raising fears in Israel and among congressional Republicans that President Obama might not veto a resolution on the matter in the waning days of his presidency. President-elect Trump stated his opposition to the resolution, as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was lobbying Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi to drop the resolution.

    “The resolution being considered at the United Nations Security Council regarding Israel should be vetoed,” Trump said in a statement. “As the United States has long maintained, peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians will only come through direct negotiations between the parties, and not through the imposition of terms by the United Nations.”

    House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., also called on the Obama administration to veto it.

    Trump’s statement might have had the greatest influence on the Egyptian decision, beyond Netanyahu’s lobbying or other American statements. “Diplomats in Tel Aviv speculating that Sisi didn’t cave because of Israel, but rather because he didn’t want to piss off incoming president,” Economist correspondent Gregg Carlstrom tweeted.

    Egypt is a temporary member of the UN Security Council, which is dominated by five permanent members — the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, China, and France — which have the authority to veto council resolutions. Obama used that authority to block a similar resolution condemning Israeli settlements in 2011, but his administration’s increasingly public frustration with the failure of talks between Israel and the Palestinians raised the possibility that he wouldn’t veto it this time around.

    Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged the appeal of a change in policy when asked about a potential resolution to be authored by French diplomats. “If it’s a biased and unfair and a resolution calculated to delegitimize Israel, we’ll oppose it,” he said at the Haim Saban Forum on December 4. “But it’s getting more complicated now because there is a building sense of what I’ve been saying to you today, which some people can shake their heads, say, well, it’s unfair.”

    Kerry emphasized that the Israeli settlements in disputed territory are not the cause of violence, but he argued that were nonetheless a “barrier” to an ultimate peace that was being tolerated by the Israeli government. “I’ll tell you why I know that: because the left in Israel is telling everybody they are a barrier to peace, and the right that supports it openly supports it because they don’t want peace,” Kerry said.

    Report: Obama to deliver final speech as president in hometown of Chicago
    Also from the Washington Examiner

    An absention at the UN would have represented a strong break, nonetheless, from standing U.S. policy and congressional Democrats and Republicans, as Obama’s allies made clear Thursday.

    “The draft United Nations resolution directly contradicts the Senate resolution I authored – and passed unanimously last year – condemning Palestinian terrorism and calling on all parties to return to the negotiating table immediately and without preconditions,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. “Direct discussions remain the best avenue to ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

  74. JB,

    More than a few of us have seen your comments over at Uppity, along with former Pinkers Shadow and Moon. I (we?) were quite surprised by the level of vitriol being spewed at Trump by you/them. Quite hypocritical in my opinion. I would expect you may see an increased level of “constructive” feedback to your posts here. Like Shadow, you may have cried wolf once too often.

    Oh…. and by the way..Hillary lost.

  75. This great Trump find has already been mentioned 5 X in thread above, but this new headline which captures her inimitable essence, bears one more iteration:

    Kellyanne Conway WILL serve Trump as she is named ‘counselor to the president’ and says she’ll have time to juggle being a mom because ‘I don’t play golf and I don’t have a mistress’

  76. The mess our “world leaders” have made will be dumped in Trumps lap. As BO lights the fuse of the global economic bomb.

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-22/federal-reserve-initiates-end-game-trump-heads-white-house

    I believe that the Fed will not only continue hiking interest rates throughout 2017, but that some of these rate hikes may be LARGER than many people expect (50 basis points or more). I believe this will be designed to foster extreme tensions between the executive branch and the central bank.

    A few months ago I would have said that Trump may or “may not” be aware of this dynamic and the potential that he is a scapegoat. Now that I have seen Trump’s cabinet picks which include neo-con and Goldman Sachs alumni, I have little doubt that he is fully cognizant of the plan. I will be writing more on the issue of Trump as a “Trojan horse” in my next article. In the meantime I would point out that all of the elements of psychological support for stock markets will also disappear in the face of a Trump verses establishment narrative.

    All those leftist media outlets cherry picking economic stats and telling half truths to support the recovery lie now have no reason to continue cheerleading for the economy. I expect that propaganda rags like Reuters and Bloomberg will quickly change their tune with Trump in the Oval Office and begin a consistent chorus of negative financial data. Not only will the Fed remove all support from the system, but the mainstream media will be pounding day traders with the kind of “doom and gloom” headlines that they have been criticizing us for over the years.

    Make no mistake, the election of Trump may have some in the liberty movement ready to pack up their preps and forget about any national crisis in their lifetimes, but the truth is, vigilance is needed now more than ever. I said it before the election and I’ll say it today — do not get comfortable; the times are about to get even more interesting.

  77. OMG “constitutional scholar” ROFL It doesn’t matter if the truth comes out (8 years previously), some people just never get the information…..

    For his contributions as a community activist, constitutional scholar, United States Senator and President, it is only fitting to honor our 44th President by naming a part of a freeway he most certainly used while living in the area.

    Two sayings which hold some merit:

    1. When it comes to dieting, if it tastes good, spit it out.

    2. When it comes to investing, buy on bad news and sell on good news.

    If you think back to September, I proudly reported that I had converted from cash to gold.

    The motive was not to make money but to protect the little I had.

    Oh, there were good reasons for this decision based on nine criteria I looked at and mentioned here.

    And beyond all that, the fatal admission: seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Donald’s election has the exact opposite effect from what the experts who were quietly hording gold themselves predicted.

    This vertical move by the stock market commencing the day after his election changed their tune.

    And it has been that way ever since.

    And as the stock market soars, gold and silver go down like a head shot goose.

    But the fundamentals have not changed, and the only real question is investment horizon.

    Here is one good fundamental to chew on:

    When Obama took office there were $800 billion in circulation

    Now thanks to quantitative easing there are $4 trillion in circulation.

    That factor standing alone is a solid predictor of inflation and more aggressive fed moves.

    A second thing is history.

    When Reagan won the stock market shot up, and six months later there was a 25% correction.

    Yesterday, I was told that a 10% correction is likely, which would give back the gains since Trump was elected.

    The third risk (apart from a black swan event) is the godderdamerung zero hedge mentions:

    The showdown between the financial elites and Trump the reformer.

    And THAT is why it is a good thing that he has selected some of the people he has for his cabinet

    People with deep roots in that community.

    People who know where the bodies are buried.

    As between those elites and the guillotine, I find myself routing for the guillotine.

    The only way to be sure, that despite their cushions and deception, their heads are the ones that roll.

    The social media will need to keep track of this, because big media will continue to lie, cheat and steal.

  82. A well connected friend of mine, who is connected to the Trump campaign, always asks me what is the mood of the people on Hillaryis44 at this point. And I respond, as recently as yesterday, that the mood is very upbeat, and the collective sense is that he will put the nation back on the right track. This friend is of the same view. However, she cautions me that even as Obama leaves office, the struggle against the globalists, and their grand design to take down this nation will continue. And that will be the biggest problem Trump has to face. The zero hedge article is consistent with, and reflective of her opinion, even though I am sure she did not write it. As the innaugeration day approaches we cannot dismiss the possibility of a Berlin style attack, or an attack on the power grid. If that happens, it will most likely be initiated, and funded by the elites, and blamed on ISIS or Russia. In other words, a Reichstad Fire, or as they now call it a false flag. The bottom line is the globalist will not give up, until he and his family face the same threat over his actions, that average Americans do. And how that ever happens is, at this point, an imponderable. Try thinking of it this way: the lady who goes into the dentist chair, and when he grabs the drill, she grabs his nuts and says, now doctor we won’t hurt each other. With nothing to lose, the elites are free to play god. That must change.

  83. I don’t post too often anymore on either site. My loyalty to Hillary overcame my dislike of Obama/democratic party. Recall, however, I came here election night and congratulated everyone. I accepted the results of the election and am not going to dwell on it the next 4 years. Please recall, at one time all of us were behind Hillary and up until about 1 yr ago that was still the predominant opinion here. I expressed my displeasure with her many times but I admit I am a Hillary loyalist and voted for her. As for Trump, initially I was very excited and amused at his candidacy, but truthfully, like most, I thought he had no shot. When he was attacking other republicans it was amusing, but against Hillary it hurt and I made my decision not because of any video or late night tweet, but because I wanted Hillary to be POTUS for a long time. I have always been respectful to all here and when I supported Hillary or “attacked” Trump, I went elsewhere. I posted yesterday to praise him, I think that is pretty open minded. Anyway, happy holidays to all.
