A Confession from the Bunkhouse

It had been planned for months. This was to be my last post. After almost 6 years of spending hours a day documenting the corruption and filth of a democrat-dominated culture I’d had enough. The Clinton Crime Family, Obama rubbing his contempt for true Americans in our faces, hordes of illegals storming the border, feral blacks running wild committing acts of brutality, and a coming flood of Muslim men. It was so depressing I decided to live out my days sans politics, simply watching old TV shows and seeing the grandkids when I could.

To say that Trump’s victory caught an awful lot of experts by surprise would be a monumental understatement. Listening to some analysis this morning much became clear. Rather than spend money on ads during the waning days of the campaign he used it to organize at the grassroots level. Personally, I think his bringing pollster Kellyann Conway on board his team was genius. It seems she gave him some sound advice. She also excelled at going on CNN and MSLSD and bitch-slapping the talking anuses.

People that are largely ignored, working-class whites who pay the taxes to support welfare layabouts, global warming hoaxers, had their healthcare taken from them, have their young daughters forced to use a bathroom next to a 50 year old man in a dress, and are told they’re racist, bigoted, and homophobic.
One of the overwhelming reasons for the Trump victory was clearly the Supreme Court. Honest, law-abiding people were rightly terrified that their right to bear arms was in jeopardy, Citizens United would be overturned, and the country would be at the mercy of 5 liberals for the next few decades. If Trump is as smart as I think he is he will roll back the onerous EPA regulations to put the coal and oil production back into operation, cut corporate taxes to entice some of the trillions in capital sitting offshore to come home and energize our manufacturing base, commence building the XL pipeline, putting thousands of union workers back on the job and stemming the tsunami of illegals pouring over the border.

One of Trump’s strong points is surrounding himself with competent people. Choosing Mike Pence proved a brilliant choice. I’m sure Newt Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani have a place in the Trump administration. The greatest thing that happened last night was that somebody finally put an end to that screeching harpy’s reign of terror.

Leftist Freak Out Thread, The Tears Are Sweet

How Trump won: The revenge of working-class whites
Whites without a college degree — men and women — made up a third of the 2016 electorate. Trump won them by 39 percentage points, according to exit polls, far surpassing 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s 25 percent margin. They were the foundation of his victories across the Rust Belt, including a blowout win in Ohio and stunning upsets in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

In polling, these voters have expressed deep racial and cultural anxieties. In exit polls they were more likely than the country as a whole to say that illegal immigrants should be deported. But those polls also suggested economic concerns and hostility toward leaders in Washington were much more important factors driving them to Trump.

Tears and shock at Clinton’s election night party
Well before midnight and still hours before the 2016 presidential race would be called, Clinton supporters began to leave.

Descending the steps down to the ground floor and walking out through the glass doors into the chilly night, some were crying and others were consoling family and friends. Many looked shell-shocked — unable to comprehend that the woman they believed would become the country’s next president was going to be defeated by Donald Trump.

CNN’s Van Jones: This Election Was A ‘Whitelash’
The Democratic blue wall is crashing down. Yet, on CNN, leave it to contributor Van Jones to throw the first racial commentary of the post-2016 election. This election was a “whitelash.”

Netanyahu declares Trump ‘a true friend of the state of Israel’ who will help bring ‘peace and stability in our region’
Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed Donald Trump as new American president
‘I look forward to working with him to advance security,’ Israeli leader said
His Education Minister said it marked the end of idea of Palestinian state
Many Western leaders have congratulated reality TV star on the victory
Education Minister Naftali Bennett, who heads the hardline Jewish Home party, said Trump’s victory eradicated the idea of a Palestinian state.
He said the unprecedented win was an ‘opportunity for Israel to immediately retract the notion of a Palestinian state in the centre of the country, which would hurt our security and just cause’.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said that he hopes ‘peace will be achieved’ during Trump’s term.

What Donald Trump’s ‘ultra-conservative’ Supreme Court will look like
Scalia in February, Trump released a list of 11 candidates he would consider to fill the late justice’s seat if he became president. The list was a testament to hard-right, conservative values.
A majority of the nominees on the list sharply oppose women’s right to abortion, and eight of them are men. All of them are white.

Americans Vote To Preserve Heller, Second Amendment
Time and again Clinton openly admitted her disagreement with Heller–and her plan to use SCOTUS to tweak or reverse it–while simultaneously pushing enough gun control to abolish the Second Amendment. Trump took the opposite position: vowing to defend Heller with SCOTUS justices “in the mold of Justice Scalia” and to maintain the Second Amendment “in its strongest form.”
Clinton promised universal background checks, an “assault weapons” ban, a “high capacity” magazine ban, and numerous other gun controls. Trump promised to save the Second Amendment from “people like Hillary Clinton.” And he voiced direct opposition to expanding background checks or instituting “assault weapon” or “high capacity” magazine bans.

Hillary Clinton’s Loss Triggers Leadership Crisis for Democrats
And yet despite having virtually every possible advantage at her disposal, from more money to better staffers to better data, it was Clinton and her party that was repudiated in the biggest presidential shock in recent memory.
Bernie supporters warned the party — and they would not listen.
And for all its sophistication, Clinton’s widely hailed data-driven campaign, modeled on the successful Obama 2008 and 2012 turnout efforts, missed the mark.
Then there are key components of the Democratic coalition: Millennials, who stayed home or voted for third-party candidates, and black voters, who turned out in lower numbers than they did for Obama.

‘Meltdown of the night’ Bitter news anchor bemoans Trump’s election success
As Donald Trump triumphed in the race to the White House a television news anchor has bemoaned his incredible success.
“You’re not having a terrible, terrible dream. Also you’re not dead and you haven’t gone to hell.This is your life now, this is our election now, this is us, this is our country – it’s real.”
Social media users attacked the television anchor for her moaning comments following on from Mr Trump securing the key swing states Florida, Ohio and North Carolina.
One Twitter user wrote: “I’m sick of Rachel Maddow and all the MSNBC people acting like they’re so stunned that Donald Trump is winning. He stands for America.”

Debate moderator Martha Radditz holds back tears while discussing Trump’s victory
During Tuesday night’s election coverage on ABC News, Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Radditz appeared to be overcome by emotion when discussing the emerging reality that Donald Trump would soon be the commander-in-chief of the United States military.

Hillary Clinton Had Her Concession Speech Ready… But Was Too Upset To Give It
Hillary Clinton had her concession speech prepared – she just never thought she’d need to read it out loud.
And when the moment came early today to admit that her lifelong dream of becoming America’s first woman president had been dashed, she simply couldn’t face the world.

Executive orders, pardons, ‘midnight’ regulations expected as Obama presidency draws to close118_2016_obama8201_s878x586Look out for the executive orders, the “midnight” regulations and, perhaps most controversially, the pardons.
As President Obama runs out the clock on his eight-year tenure, analysts say, he still has plenty of business left undone, and they expect him to follow the lead of other presidents and issue a series of rules, to add to his list of executive orders, to continue his record-setting pace of commutations and perhaps add a controversial pardon or two into the mix.

    I have to say that I am not surprised by your confession. I could see it coming and nobody would blame you. All these years of finding and reporting one indignity after another has to take a toll. Do what makes you happy now! I feel much better today, but not as shocked as some. I always knew he could win if he used Palin’s Forgotten Man message.

    I totally avoided all news yesterday and went to bed feeling really dark about four more years of Democrat treachery.

    When I woke up, I found a text on my phone from Mama Buzz: “Republicans killed it! We have the House, Senate, and Presidency!”

    I woohooed and thanked her. She texted back, “Yeah, I thought you’d like to wake up to that.” :))))

    And now Best News #2 … Pete is not quitting!!

    Also, I got my first professional haircut in 20 years with David’s lady barber who came in early so I could be totally first in the shop and was very careful of my fragrance allergies. I feel pretty again!

    I told her, “It’s so short, I won’t have to bother you again for months”, and she said, “Oh no! You get back in here in 6 weeks, so I can clean up your neck and do some styling on the top and sides so we can get your curls to grow out again.”

    Wow. And Pete did such a GREAT job with the election and post-election news, I’m not sure I’ve got anything else to say. Just sitting here grinning!

    • My husband went to bed early last night, convinced he was going to wake up to find that Queen Cacklepants had won. Was he ever shocked when he woke up! I, on the other hand, knew that I wouldn’t be able to sleep, so I just stayed up and watched Steven Crowder & friends covering the results — most fun I’ve had in a long time. 🙂

  3. I think it no secret that I am not a fan of Trump. I’m a Catholic Libertarian with Increasingly Anarchist Leanings, and I thought both candidates were Way Too Authoritarian.

    That said, Hilary and her crew were demonstrably Next Level Evil. In a way that I’d kinda suspected, but never thought I’d actually see proof of. Much as it pained me (and it did) I was one of the MD voters in a blue county that voted for Trump. Not that it mattered for much, as my down-ticket (straight Republican for me b/c it’s MD) all lost, and both my county and state went for the Satanic B*tch.

    I was most surprised about the news of the House and Senate. This pleases me greatly. I look forward to the confirmation hearings for Justice Mike Lee, or Justice Ted Cruz.

    I read your candid posts regularly and was saddened by what was by your understandably pessimistic outlook for the country prior to this election. Now that the impossible has happened and American is about to finally have a true patriot leader, with no obligations to any funding special interests, I’m encouraged to see you’re turning a bit more optimistic. Please continue to do that. Trump is not without flaws, but he has withstood the slings and arrows of virtually every organized political, mass media, Wall Street, social media group and won!! He assembled a team of exceptional smart and effective supporters, that spent only a fraction of what his opposition spent and still managed to come out on top. So my take away is this: He has earned the right to expect my trust and support and he has it. Also, the everyday Americans of this country have shown that through the election process, we can still overcome a corrupt and rigged political system and achieve revolutionary change without bloodshed. Once again I can be a proud American.
