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.
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]
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.
President-Elect Donald J. Trump continues to be the smooth operator. Hillary2016 continues to prove it was the dumbest campaign ever and now is the dumbest post campaign ever.
How smooth is President-Elect Donald J. Trump? Let’s answer that question with a look at the bottom of the barrel, the biggest turd in the dung heap, the lowest of the low: Barack Obama. The news today from bottom of the barrel Barack is that America is buried under the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, and all the usual excuses to explain away the failures of the black community generally and Barack Obama in particular. Obama stated this appropriately enough on “Comedy Central”. Talk about “fake news”!
Race-baiting Barack up to his usual race-baiting, without mentioning his race-baiting mentor Jeremiah “Goddamn America” Wright, should have been the news of the day. But the smooth operator is on the job. What was President-Elect Donald J. Trump up to today? The smooth operator was shoving Jim Crow up Obama’s fat ass by meeting with Jim Brown and Kanye West:
Older, respected, black, beloved football legend and movie star? Check. Young, black, hip-hop pop music icon? Check. That’s how a smooth operator operates. Why slap Barack Obama in the face directly when you can slap him in the face and laugh at him by meeting with famous black icons in the lobby of the building that carries your name? So much for Jim Crow, slavery and all the other shibboleths and race-baiting that Obama has exploited all his unproductive life to self-advance.
Trump schlonged Obama.
It’s very difficult to make a bigger mess of things than Barack Obama but Hillary2016 will do all to prove it is a doable task. Witness the latest news.
Today President-Elect Donald J. Trump flies to Wisconsin to say “thank you, thank you”. The double thanks is due because of dumb ol’ Hillary2016 and smart Jill Stein. As we previously wrote, Jill Stein snookered Hillary supporters into giving her money. Jill Stein’s strategy has been brilliant. Jill Stein attacked Hillary during the election, then gets money from Hillary supporters – greenbacks to be used to build the Green Party in future elections which will further harm the Obama Dimocrat Party. As we wrote “well played girlfriend, well played.”
The above is reason enough to proclaim Hillary supporters extra dumb. But not to be outdone, Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 went for the gold in their quest to be dumbest election campaign and dumbest post election campaign. Hillary Clinton and her dumb campaign could have resisted Jill Stein’s efforts to topple Trump from the top spot and demonstrated some savvy. Hillary Clinton and her dumb campaign could have stood by and harrumphed at Jill Stein’s recount efforts to prove themselves hapless but not entirely dumb. But no, Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 went all in with support for Jill Stein’s recount efforts – thereby aiding Stein who mercilessly attacked Hillary during the campaign, additionally proving Hillary2016 attacks on “anti-democratic process” Trump were all phony, and playing follow-the-leader Jill Stein to prove Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 as weak-kneed dolts. The results are worthy of Comedy Central.
FLASHBACK: Clinton blasted Trump for not saying he will accept election results…yet now her campaign joins Wisconsin recount effort pic.twitter.com/dVqiFvJR5U
Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 deserve a 24 hour a day, years long program on Comedy Central. Look at the results of what Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 have done. We noted the debasement above. The results though, the results of the utter stupidity is comic. We were probably the only website that endorsed Donald J. Trump for president that wanted recounts, lots and lots of recounts. More recounts, More and more recounts. As we explained, we wanted to relive the glorious election night and with every Trump victory and recount we would get something once reserved for the Doublemint twins. Two, two, two, victories in one.
And that is what happened. Donald J. Trump won Wisconsin. Then because of the recount, Donald J. Trump won Wisconsin again. The Doublemint taste of victory was a great win. But with the smooth operator, winning is not enough. The win has to be a double win with mint on top. And that is what we got. Trump won on November 8. Trump wins the recount on December 13. Then… then… then… not only does President-Elect Donald J. Trump win again – HE INCREASES HIS FRRRREAKKING LEAD. That’s winning times two or three or WOW!!!
Doublemint twin Trump goes to Wisconsin today to say “thank you, thank you” for the double victory. So, who’s tired of winning???
President-Elect Donald J. Trump and his supporters are not tired of winning. Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 are not tired of losing. And lose they will. The latest go for the gold in the stupidity Olympics is Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta tying Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 to the Obama inspired silliness of the Russians stealing the election for Trump. Anybody remember Barack Obama telling the Russians he would um, get things done in their favor, be more “flexible”, after the 2012 election?
Apparently, in their quest to win the gold for stupid, Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 will do all in their power to dredge up every travesty of the Obama years. That Uranium One business should now be investigated by the new administration because we are all so worried about the Russians, right? Loser: Hillary Clinton on that one. That Russian reset business investigated? Loser: Hillary Clinton. Russians stole the election or Obama Dimocrats tried and failed to steal the election? Um, the investigation is already on:
Voting machines in more than one-third of all Detroit precincts registered more votes than they should have during last month’s presidential election, according to Wayne County records prepared at the request of The Detroit News.
Detailed reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett show optical scanners at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent, tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books. Voting irregularities in Detroit have spurred plans for an audit by Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s office, Elections Director Chris Thomas said Monday. [snip]
Democrat Hillary Clinton overwhelmingly prevailed in Detroit and Wayne County.
Let the investigations proliferate! There’s plenty of space in the prison system for those that want to join Obama Dimocrat Chaka Fattah in his ten year spell in the joint.
Democrats’ all-out bid to smear Trump’s victory as Clinton campaign backs electoral college members demanding intel briefing on Russian hacking before they vote
Democrats put on a united bid to question the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s election victory on Monday with the Clinton campaign returning from the dead to join in.
In a series of developments the White House, the Clinton campaign and Democrat members of the electoral college all pounced on reports that the CIA believe Russian wanted Trump to win the election.
A group of electoral college members – aided by an anti-Trump Republican – demanded a security briefing on the CIA’s findings – a clear attempt to influence other members of the college who are not bound to vote for Trump.
Then they were backed by John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman, who launched a tirade against the media, claiming – in the teeth of overwhelming evidence – that claims of Russia interfering in the election had not been covered enough before voting day.
Next to the fray was the White House, which accused Trump of inviting Russia to hack Hillary Clinton, ending weeks of detente in the wake of the election result.
The attacks appear to be a concerted attempt by the Democrats to turn next week’s vote by members of the electoral college into a massive question over the legitimacy of the result.
Judge rejects injunction request in Colorado elector suit seeking to block Donald Trump
A federal judge on Monday rejected an attempt by two Colorado electors to unbind their votes in the Electoral College, saying the effort designed to impede Donald Trump’s path to the White House is “a political stunt.”
U.S. District Judge Wiley Daniel denied a request for a preliminary injunction to nullify a state law that requires presidential electors to vote for the winner of the state’s popular vote. To do otherwise, Daniel said in his ruling from the bench, “would undermine the electoral process.”
The president-elect and the Trump campaign intervened in the lawsuit to “defend the integrity of the electoral process” and applauded the ruling. “Your vote should count when you vote for president,” said Chris Murray, a Denver attorney representing Trump and the campaign.
Two Democratic electors who pledged to support Democrat Hillary Clinton — the winner of Colorado’s nine electoral votes — argued the law is unconstitutional. Polly Baca and Robert Nemanich wanted to break their vow as part of a far-fetched effort to trade their votes for a third-party candidate and keep Trump from receiving his 306 electoral votes. Clinton won 232.
The “Hamilton Electors” movement is trying to convince Republican electors supporting Trump to defect — and force the question to the U.S. House of Representatives.
Even with the setback, an attorney for the electors said they remain undeterred and plan to vote for a candidate other than Clinton when the state’s Electoral College members meet at noon Monday. [snip]
At frequent intervals, the judge interrupted Wesoky to dispute his arguments. “Part of me thinks this is really a political stunt to prevent Mr. Trump from being president,” said Daniel, who was appointed to the bench by President Bill Clinton.
We’ll sum up the Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, Hillary2016 stupidity. Hillary Clinton encourages electors who will vote against her, even though they are supposed to by law to vote for her, to vote against her because the Russians or something. The result is that a federal judge appointed by Bill Clinton declares the stupidity to be a “political stunt”. Hillary Clinton loses again and proves to be either stupid or a hypocrite or both, and President-Elect Donald J. Trump wins again and again and again.
This morning, before taking flight to Wisconsin for his Doublemint victory “Thank You Wisconsin, Thank You Wisconsin” rally, President-Elect Donald J. Trump named “T-Rex” Tillerson, formerly of Exxon-Mobil to be Secretary of State. Rick Perry will be Secretary of Energy. With earlier picks the President Donald J. Trump cabinet can be seen for what it is. Dare we say it?
What is going on with the Trump cabinet picks? Is this Drain the Swamp? Are these outsiders? What goes on?
President-Elect Donald J. Trump’s picks are the signposts of a businessman in charge. Why are T-Rex Tillerson (State), Rick Perry (Energy), James Mattis (Defense), John Kelly (Homeland), Mike Pompeo (CIA), Steven Mnuchin (Treasury), Jeff Sessions (Justice), Andrew Puzder (Labor), Tom Price (HHS), Ben Carson (HUD), Scott Pruit (EPA), Wilbur Ross (Commerce), Elaine Chao (Transportation), Nikki Haley (UN), Betsy Devos (Education), and Linda McMahon (SBA), smart picks for Trump. Um, in most cases the phrase “get a dog to eat a dog” applies.
President-Elect Donald J. Trump will manage the White House the way a business man manages his business. It won’t be a hierarchical management structure. It won’t be an FDR style spokes to the center of the wheel management structure. It won’t be an Obama learn on the job and vacation a lot with golf management structure. It won’t be anything really seen before. The closest “structure” will be a Bill Clinton type “structure”. By that we mean it will be all of the above.
Trump’s picks for cabinet and top level posts appear to us to be a structured hierarchical with clear lines of authority while at the same time all the spokes will lead to the center of the wheel, Trump, who in turn will call bureaucrats all up and down the command chain at all times and for whatever he wants.
That “structure” is why Trump’s picks are so smart. All his picks can be seen as in two “baskets”. One the Terry Branstad “good cop” basket which includes T-Rex Tillerson. This basket of adorables will be agents of T.R.U.M.P. who have friends in their assigned posts. Branstad is friends with the Chinese leadership so he is Ambassador to China. Haley is “nice” so she goes to the UN to charm (and a Trump supporter replaces her as South Carolina governor). Tillerson is friends with Putin and other world leaders so Tillerson is Secretary of State.
The other basket is the basket of combustibles. This is the big basket. This basket of incendiaries whose mission is to destroy the bureaucracies they have been assigned to. Rick Perry as candidate for president vowed to eliminate the Department of Energy. Now Rick Perry goes to Energy to destroy the bureaucracy there. Betsy Devos will be prepared to destroy/reshape the Education Department. Jeff Sessions, will crush the Justice Department bureaucrats. Pompeo will scald CIA, Pruit will uproot EPA, Kelly and Mattis will crush the Pentagon and military-industrial bureaucrats (already set in motion by Trump’s denunciations of Boeing and Lockheed contracts). All these people know the agencies they will run and will make their departments run well after they break the back of the bureaucrats and drain the swamp.
T-Rex Tillerson will be found in both baskets. He is an “adorable” because he is friend to many. But Tillerson is also in the combustible basket. Tillerson is combustible because he will head the mess that is the State Department. President-Elect Donald J. Trump needed someone who can take control over this sprawling mess before anything can be done in the policy arena.
Tillerson will follow President Trump’s orders as Secretary of State. Tillerson’s undersecretaries will help him organize the Department. Why Tillerson? Because Tillerson ran a corporation bigger than the State Department. Tillerson knows how to bureaucratically fight and reorganize the State Department and make it respond to President Trump’s wishes.
Worries about Tillerson and his background as Exxon chief should not hide the reason why he was chosen. This is a guy who knows how to run a big organization. This is a guy who can assess the departmental mess and reorganize it. That’s why Trump wanted Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney was a turnaround specialist. Instead of Willard Romney with his bag of Trump insults, President-Elect Donald J. Trump got the biggest corporate leader in the world. Tillerson will follow Trump’s orders.
While President-Elect Donald J. Trump astounds with very smart, very original, remarkable new ways of leading, Hillary2016 is trapped in the past, on a dung-heap, with Obama, Biden, Pelousy, Schumer, and Reid, fighting shadows of things past.
The age of contempt for experience and adoration of fake change and fake hope, exemplified by Barack Obama, is here.
The fake hope and the fake change are poses struck by a fake Democrat and fake president. The age of fake was introduced by the fake music that was played at the fake inaugural with its fake oath.
Today is day 3 of the age of fake.
In 2008 flim-flam con man Barack Obama had zero achievements other than self-advancement. In the Age of Fake that made Obama king of the fake hill. It was all fake. Eight years later the Age of Fake continues to fake. Over the years we wrote over thirty articles chronicling the Age of Fake. Back then we thought Hillary Clinton was “genuine” compared to Barack Obama. But either due to political calculation or dementia Hillary Clinton has embraced the fake.
This week Hillary Clinton attacked “fake news”.
Hillary Clinton: "Let me just mention one threat in particular that should concern all Americans… the epidemic of malicious fake news" pic.twitter.com/f4ESmm4QZf
Hillary is rather late to the party. Barack Obama and the entire “Hope and Change” scam was a fake. It was false hope and chump change.
Why would Hillary Clinton denounce “fake news” in December 2016 when she herself and Bill Clinton in 2012 generated tons of fake news with their lies about how wonderful Barack Obama was? It’s all about political calculation mixed in with dementia. The calculation is that the leftist dopes that believed the fake news that declared Hillary Clinton the sure winner in a massive landslide need to be comforted with a comfortable fake news lie. The dementia is displayed in thinking that more fake news can ameliorate the harsh reality of their future.
Hillary Clinton and the left want to comfort themselves with the fake news that fake news is what destroyed Hillary2016. Hillary Clinton, the left, the Obama Dimocrats, and Hillary2016 will try to create the fake news lie that Donald J. Trump is President-Elect because of the Russians, hacking, Comey, and assorted other fantasy villains. But what really happened?
Why did Donald J. Trump win? Over and over and over this election season we wrote this was a change election and the candidate of change would win. We wrote that in January 25 of this year. We wrote that when Trump was up in the polls, we wrote that when Trump was down in the polls and attacked by Paul Ryan:
. . .Donald J. Trump will win. Why? Because it’s a change election. That’s all you need to know.
We wrote that over and over. “It’s a change election, that’s all you need to know.” Today Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report answers the question “How Trump Broke the Blue Wall”:
The exit polls also show that Trump’s success in these three states was about more than voter frustration with the state of the economy. In fact, Hillary Clinton did better among those who said the economy was “the most important issue facing the country,” than Obama did four years earlier. But, among those who said they wanted to see a president who “can bring change,” Trump crushed Clinton by 68-72 points.
It was a change election. That’s all you need to know.
But Hillary Clinton and the leftist loons need to believe it was something else. Why? Because the fake news allowed them to believe that Hillary2016 was going to win. The dispute among those who believed the fake news was between those who believed Hillary2016 was going to win in a landslide and those who believed Hillary2016 was going to win in a super-duper-landslide.
Unhinged, psychotic, infantile, Hillary Clinton supporters are unable to work, crying, bereft of the will to go on with their pathetic lives because of the shock and surprise [???] of Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2016 elections. Just how stupid are these people? Hillary Clinton deserved to lose and it was obvious she was going to lose – as we charged repeatedly since at least 2013, because Hillary Clinton ran the dumbest, stupidest, campaign for president we have ever seen. Get that through your thick, whimpering, whiny, heads. Hillary2016 was the dumbest, stupidest, campaign we have ever seen. We call forth the witnesses for the prosecution, Bill Clinton, Trump hater Kurt Eichenwald, Mark Penn, and everyone with a mature brain that functions.
The response from Hillary2016, Barack Obama, and the rest of the mooks, is that “fake news” was to blame for the election loss. That’s why Obama is busy with presidential pardons, appointments to boards, rule making in the authoritarian agencies of government in an attempt to forestall the TrumpNado about to strike the swamp of Washington, D.C.
It’s a bit juvenile to cite examples of fake news such as a video caused Benghazi, great ObamaCare, the good Obama economy, climate change wealth redistribution, rampant racism, defeat by misogyny, shovel ready stimulus, uniter Obama, fashionable Michelle, coalition of the ascendant, hands up don’t shoot, keep your doctor, bend the cost curve down, Solyndra, debt/deficit, unemployment rates, and other instances proving the Obama years are the Age of Fake. No need to beat that dead donkey. If anything those examples must be used as warning guides to the future.
The Obama Dimocrats and the left, alongside Hillary Clinton unfortunately want to remain in the past. Trump is busy with the future.
The “tweets” Big Media is so upset about? Tweets are Donald J. Trump’s version of FDR’s fireside chats. FDR used the dominant media of the day, radio, to communicate with Americans. Trump uses the internet and “tweets”. Trump today campaigns in Louisiana to elect yet another Republican (John Kennedy!) to join the Republican majority in the senate. President-Elect Donald J. Trump is reality based.
The fake news? The fake news is Russian hacks, electoral college hacks, recount hacks.
The real news? The 2016 election was a change election. The candidate of change won. That’s all you need to know.
Several death sentences appeared in the past 72 hours. Judge, jury, executioner is President-Elect Donald J. Trump.
Death Sentence #1:“We Don’t Need You Guys Anymore”. Die, Big Media, Die. This death sentence was spoken by Dick Cheney, authored by Donald J. Trump:
Cheney To CNN’s Barbara Starr: Trump Took Us To Point Where We Don’t Need You Guys Anymore
CHENEY: I think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn’t have to rely upon, uh, rely upon — this is the modern era, modern technology. He’s at the point where we don’t need you guys anymore.
Die Big Media, die. Trump gets around Big Media with his Tweets. A single camera trained on the elevators in Trump Tower commands all the attention. The camera ignores the Big Media Trump haters. The American public can see who goes up and down without a pundit. [We’ll have more from Cheney shortly.]
Beijing today lodged a formal protest with the U.S. because President-elect Donald Trump, bypassing established diplomatic channels, spoke to Taiwan’s Tsai Ing-wen yesterday by telephone. [snip]
Why? In a few short minutes over the phone, Trump implicitly recognized Taiwan’s status as a sovereign state, thereby breaking with decades of settled China policy.
The call, as many have noted is the first known interaction between a U.S. president or president-elect with his Taiwan counterpart since the Carter administration broke diplomatic relations with the island.
Regardless of what Trump and Tsai said to each other, the fact the call took place would be sufficient to upset Beijing’s leaders, who view Taiwan as part of their People’s Republic of China.
Tsai, on the other hand, believes she heads a state called the Republic of China. Formally, her government takes the position it has sovereignty over all China but, as a practical matter, acts as if it is sovereign over only the main island of Taiwan and scattered islands it in fact administers.
Washington recognizes Beijing as the lawful government of China but in substance maintains the dispute between the two sides is unresolved and insists the resolution of the matter, when it occurs, be peaceful. The Taiwan Relations Act, U.S. legislation passed in 1979, provides for unofficial ties with Taipei and creates limited obligations to protect the island from Beijing. This American posture has continued, with only minor modification, since that time.
Trump, however, seemed to change everything Friday.
The entire take on China/Taiwan by Gordon Chang deserves a reading. China for a long time has played North Korea and nuclear bombs against the United States and its allies in an obvious way but the West and its hapless diplomats have responded like running dogs for a decayed decadent system. Trump changes all that.
FMR. VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY: One of the most important things [President-elect Trump] can do is exactly the opposite of what his predecessor did. With respect to Iran and nuclear weapons, and don’t make the mistakes that the situation he is inheriting from the Obama administration represented. With respect to our status in the world, the capabilities of our forces, the belief on the part of I believe many of our friends and allies that they can no longer trust the United States or count on our guarantees. I think we need to do major progress and reverse the Obama policies and not that’s not a place for President Trump to start.
That’s pretty much what we wrote last month: do the opposite of what Obama did. And what Carter did too. American policy on China is not working. Rewrite the China policy. President-Elect Donald J. Trump pronounced a death sentence on the currently not working China policy. Foreign policy experts are shocked and in a fury. President-Elect Donald J. Trump is exactly right and Trump changed China policy before he is president, with a single telephone call he answered. Good job!
What Trump has done is not “reset” Washington’s relations with China but put them on an entirely new footing. Up to now, Beijing has kept the initiative, and American presidents, especially George W. Bush and Obama, have merely reacted, trying to build friendly relations in spite of increasingly bold Chinese moves. The concept was that Washington had to maintain cooperative ties, increasingly considered an end in itself.
Trump, by seemingly not caring about Beijing’s reaction, has cut China down to size, telling its autocrats he does not fear them.
Just about everyone assumed the Chinese would create a crisis for Trump in his first months in office, just as they created crises for both George W. Bush—in April 2001 with the detention of the crew of the U.S. Navy EP-3—and his successor—the harassment of the Navy’s unarmed reconnaissance vessels, the Impeccable and Victorious, in March and May 2009.
Instead, Trump took the initiative and created a crisis for China’s leaders, and he did that more than a month before taking the oath of office.
Therefore, Beijing is bound to find the next months unfamiliar and unsettling.
There is, if you need a metaphor, a rather large bull in the china shop. And, yes, that could be a good thing.
Trump’s triumph puts Italy’s Renzi in difficult position
Donald Trump’s unexpected victory in the U.S. presidential election is likely to make it even harder for Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi to win a crucial referendum on constitutional reform set for December.
Renzi was one of the few world leaders to publicly endorse Hillary Clinton and Trump’s triumph has not only put the Italian premier in a difficult diplomatic position, it has also underlined the rise of anti-elite sentiment around the world.
“This factor is weighing against Renzi because at the moment for many Italians he represents the establishment,” said Roberto D’Alimonte, politics professor at Luiss University in Rome. [snip]
“The Trump win does show that populism continues in 2016 and suggests a ‘no’ vote in the Italian referendum could be stronger than we assumed,” David Zahn, the head of European fixed income at U.S. fund manager Franklin Templeton, told Reuters. [snip]
Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement currently heads the opinion polls and its founder, Beppe Grillo, hailed Trump’s victory, seeing it as a vindication of his own maverick stance.
“It is those who dare, the obstinate, the barbarians who will take the world forward. We are the barbarians! The real idiots, populists and demagogues are the journalists and the establishment intellectuals,” Grillo wrote on his blog.
Jumping on the U.S. election bandwagon with an eye to the forthcoming referendum, former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia (Go Italy!) party put out Tweets saying “In America, they voted NO”.
The group’s parliamentary leader Renato Brunetta called on Renzi to resign immediately and not even wait until Dec. 4, saying his pro-Clinton stance had weakened Italy’s standing.
“From this day forward Matteo Renzi is politically finished, he is a dead man walking,” Brunetta said in a statement. “No other European country sided with one of the two contenders like Italy did. Now Renzi must reap the consequences and take responsibility for his bad choices.”
When Beppe Grillo started to make headlines as the leader of Italy’s biggest protest party more than six years ago, it was hard to avoid the puns. A comedian turned politician, Grillo was laughed at and branded a “clown.”
But by 2013, the laughing subsided, and German magazine Der Spiegel already had called him “the most dangerous man in Europe.” Three years later, he may finally be living up to that description, according to his critics.
On Sunday, a majority of Italians voted against legislative reforms in a referendum, according to major exit polls. Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who had pushed for the reforms and was forced to call the referendum, admitted defeat on Sunday evening and announced that he would hand in his resignation on Monday. [snip]
Similar to Trump’s “drain the swamp” political message, Grillo has taken a strong anti-establishment and anti-corruption stance, accusing Renzi of preventing economic and anti-corruption reforms. [snip]
Referring to German Chancellor Angela Merkel and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, Gillo said in an interview with the Financial Times last year: “They have a kind of illness, it’s called alexithymia, which means difficulty recognizing the emotions of others: pain, pleasure, joy. . . . They don’t care if they have to put tens of millions of people into hunger to balance an account, it’s collateral damage. We’ve entrusted our lives to people who know nothing about life,” he said.
Life just got a boost in Italy and world-wide because of Donald J. Trump.
Will this last? Can this go on? Is this Donald J. Trump victory/victories just a one time magic moment that will flicker away like a candle that dies leaving only a trail of smoke? Look to Pennsylvania for the answer.
Death Sentence #4: “he made Philadelphia irrelevant.”
As we analyze the numbers from election night, we can only be amazed. The Decision Desk analysis concludes that everything Hillary2016 did was right if only the opponent was not Donald J. Trump. Michael Barone finally came to the conclusion we did last year that Hillary2016 would destroy lumps like Jeb Bush, John Kasich, even Ted Cruz:
Would Another Republican Have Defeated Hillary Clinton?
Donald Trump charted a new course to the presidency, and both parties have a great deal to learn from it. [snip]
That opening was the fact that Democrats were taking for granted their above-national-average support from non-college-educated outstate voters in their determination to build a new, “ascendant” majority of blacks, Hispanics, single women, and Millennials. They figured that outstate Obama voters were locked into the Democratic party and didn’t need any special attention. Turns out they weren’t and they did.
So the familiar partisan lines of the past 20 years have been redrawn, and now we have a more downscale Republican party and a Democratic party confined to its coastal and campus cocoons.
As we wrote so many times before, the Obama “coalition of the ascendant” was a suitable demographic for a situation comedy on TV, but not as a foundation for a political party that wants to govern and grow. The numbers from election 2016 confirm our analysis.
Will it all last? As Decision Desk notes, what Donald J. Trump did was astounding and deserving of respect:
Ring Around the Collar: The Philadelphia Suburbs And The 2016 Election
In June, I authored an article for The Federalist in which I argued that Donald Trump would not win Pennsylvania because any gains he might make with white working class voters would be insufficient to overcome the steep losses he was likely to suffer in the Philadelphia area. [snip]
Trump did badly in the Philly collar. From the Clinton campaign’s perspective not badly enough, perhaps; and certainly not the 20-30% debacle many polls were forecasting. Yet his margins in the Philadelphia area normally would have been enough to keep the Keystone State in the Democrats’ vaunted “blue wall.” Barack Obama won 690,000 votes in the Philly suburbs in 2012. Hillary Clinton received 729,000. Romney got 567,000. Trump dropped to 550,000. That’s a swing of 46,000 votes to Clinton. [snip]
What Donald Trump demonstrated with this year’s electorate is that a historic turnout by white working class voters could be and in fact was – contrary to the expectations of all but a handful of pundits – sufficient to negate the Democrats’ traditional advantage in the Philadelphia region and put Pennsylvania in the GOP column for the first time since 1988. Whether this lesson can be repeated is an open question, but it is one students of American politics will be studying for many years to come.
Since this post was published, the City of Philadelphia released its final vote tallies for the 2016 election. Donald Trump’s total increased to just under 109,000 votes, while Clinton’s soared to 584,000 votes, an increase of 21,000 and a mere 4,000 short of Obama’s 2012 total. Delaware County also has updated its figures. Hillary Clinton’s margin improved to 67,000 votes, as she did 12,000 votes better than Barack Obama did in 2012. Trump’s total in Delco also rose by 4,000 votes. He now stands 5,000 votes above Mitt Romney there. [snip]
Incorporating this new data yields the following updated results. Clinton’s total in the Philadelphia collar stands at 737,000 votes, an improvement of 47,000 on Barack Obama’s 2012 total of 690,000. Trump’s total rises to 554,000, which is 13,000 short of Romney’s count. This means Clinton’s improvement in the suburbs, which initially stood at 46,000, is now 59,000 votes. The updated totals in Philadelphia also reduce the swing there from 35,000 towards Trump to a more modest 17,000. Instead of coming out of the Philadelphia region only 11,000 votes ahead of Barack Obama, as my original calculations indicated, Clinton came out 32,000 votes ahead. What these updated results tell us, therefore, is that in Philadelphia Hillary Clinton performed more like Barack Obama, and Donald Trump performed even worse than Mitt Romney, than initially believed. In other words, Trump’s victory in Pennsylvania, impressive as it was, was even more impressive than it seemed at first glance.
Trump pulled off the near impossible: he made Philadelphia irrelevant. Whatever one thinks of the man, this feat is worthy of, nay demands, respect.
Read that again: Trump’s victory in Pennsylvania, impressive as it was, was even more impressive than it seemed at first glance. He made “Philadelphia irrelevant.”
It’s a death sentence for the Dims.
China, Europe, those that want to destroy the West, take heed. President Donald J. Trump is not Barack Obama. Trump is not even president yet and already the heads roll.
America’s enemies, take heed – America and the West are back, ready and willing to fight.
Update: We won’t get to relive election night after all. The Green-with-envy Partay has collapsed in the attempt to stop President-Elect Donald J. Trump. No recount in PA. Darn. We so wanted to relive that grand election night. With Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes, Donald J. Trump has 280 electoral votes, ten more than needed. President-Elect Donald J. Trump.
First Ford, then Carrier, and now possibly Oreo! Yup, President-Elect Donald J. Trump has done more for American workers than the present occupant of the White House has done in eight years.
President-Elect Donald J. Trump convinced Ford to keep jobs in the U.S. Today it was a wonderful event as President-Elect Donald J. Trump confirmed at a public event that Carrier jobs have also been saved. Now President-Elect Donald J. Trump might make those horrible Oreo cookies Great Again. The rumor is that the maker of those horrible Oreo cookies might make them tasty again by keeping jobs in the U.S.
He’s not even president yet and already you can feel the chains coming off as President-Elect Donald J. Trump Makes America Great Again.
This Carrier deal is very important. It’s important not only for the details of what happened but because of the message it sends.
This Carrier deal is not only good for the families of those whose jobs have been saved, politically important for what it says about the hard work and savvy of the President-Elect, and a shrewd and sharp knife against such as Paul Ryan. We won’t expand to much on all of this at this point; we won’t note the presidential election to come next year in France and the rise of François Fillon and other interesting repercussions of the “immeasurable” “vastness” of the “Trump Revolution” here in the United States on November 8, 2016.
We just want to enjoy tonight’s Victory Tour Thank You Tour as it begins in Cincinnati, Ohio. While we watch President-Elect Donald J. Trump in Cincinnati at 7:00 p.m. we will imagine Ohio Governor John Kasich watching this as well then we will chortle, giggle, and continue to enjoy the vastness of the Trump Revolution.
Can we have more Victory Tour Thank You Tour dates please? We just can’t get enough.
We have an idea.
We have a Great Idea, a Big Idea: We hereby declare December 1, to be a day to celebrate the election of Donald J. Trump and say “Thank You, Donald J. Trump”. We declare that on December 1 the nation shall have a reenactment of November 8, 2016 election night.
On this holiday we have just declared, we do like those Civil War reenactment guys that dress up as Union and Confederate troops and reenact battles. But we’ll reenact the drama of election night. We can once again be nervous, clutching our pearls at the beginning – even though we are sure of the outcome. Filled with trepidation and hope as the candles burn and there are no more fingernails left to bite and the night progresses. Then the great exultation and “hurrah” as the night sky filled with immeasurable vastness of real hope and real, not chump, CHANGE fills the sky like fireworks. We can even wear funny hats and Make America Great Again hats and Cat in the Hat hats. Make it fun. Endless winning!
We know some will say “We don’t need to reenact election night 2016 because for the next month we can enjoy as Donald J. Trump wins the Wisconsin recount, then the Michigan recount, then the Pennsylvania recount.” And yes, we do enjoy the recounts as certain supporters and candidates make greater fools of themselves. But we want more.
We want more. We’re not tired of winning. Maybe we should ask the fools to file for recounts in Texas — and Georgia — and Utah — and Ohio — and Alabama — and — well every state so we can have endless winning. We want more recounts. Pleeeeaaaseee.
We’re not tired of winning. We’re not Auntie ‘Em. We’re not tired of winning.
Born into slavery as one of the youngest of thirteen children of James and Elizabeth in Ulster County, New York, in 1797, Sojourner Truth’s given name was Isabella Baumfree. As almost all of her brothers and sisters had been sold to other slave owners, some of her earliest memories were of her parents’ stories of the cruel loss of their other children. [snip]
In 1843, she changed her name to Sojourner Truth – her name for a traveling preacher, one who speaks the truth – and left New York. She traveled throughout New England, where she met and worked with abolitionists such as William Lloyd Garrison, and Frederick Douglass. Her life story, The Narrative of Sojourner Truth: A Northern Slave, written with the help of friend Olive Gilbert, was published in 1850.
While traveling and speaking in states across the country, Sojourner Truth met many women abolitionists and noticed that although women could be part of the leadership in the abolitionist movement, they could neither vote nor hold public office. It was this realization that led Sojourner to become an outspoken supporter of women’s rights.
In 1851, she addressed the Women’s Rights Convention in Akron, Ohio, delivering her famous speech “Ain’t I a Woman?” The applause she received that day has been described as “deafening.” From that time on, she became known as a leading advocate for the rights of women. She became one of the nineteenth century’s most eloquent voices for the cause of anti-slavery and women’s rights.

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

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

Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton Meets Afghan Women Lawyers. Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton met today at the State Department with fourteen prominent Afghan women judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys. These jurists were in Washington to participate in a training program arranged by the Department’s Public-Private Partnership for Justice Reform in Afghanistan. Secretary Clinton told them: "Your American friends greatly admire your bravery and courage. It is your work in the tough environment of Afghanistan for women lawyers that will bring real reform and the rule of law to the Afghan people. As President Obama made clear yesterday in his first foreign policy announcement, we are committed to supporting your efforts to bring security and stability to your country."
