“This is my pledge to you and if we follow these steps we will once more have a government of, by and for the people and importantly we will make America great again. Believe me.”
Already said what I wanted to say in the last thread. This is just to keep anybody around informed and educated. No charge.
Suicide prevention hotlines see shocking spike in calls after Trump’s win: ‘We’ve never seen this before’
A record number of anguished calls flooded suicide prevention hotlines just before and after Donald Trump secured his shocking presidential victory.
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline received 660 calls between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. Wednesday — 2½ times the average.
“It clearly is and was an indication that there’s a lot of anxiety and fear around the election,” director John Draper told the Daily News.
Obama’s Legacy: The Total Destruction Of The Democratic Party
As the Democratic Party enters a long, lonely road out of power, it should be a lesson and a warning to Republicans. Never build a party apparatus and voter coalition so firmly behind a single, term-limited president. It’s dubious as to whether a successor can keep that winning coalition in place. For Clinton, she failed. In the end, Trump was expected to torpedo GOP gains; that didn’t happen. And Barack Obama will have to watch hopelessly as congressional Republicans–now working with a Trump White House–will undo most of his signature domestic achievements.
DNC Prepares To Elevate Muslim Congressman Ellison To Chief
THEY JUST DON’T GET IT.
If you thought the Democrats would respond to Donald Trump’s stunning victory in the 2016 presidential election by attempting to woo back some of the white blue-collar voters they lost over the last eight years, you’re sadly mistaken: they’ll be doubling down on the Obama coalition.
The proof: on Friday, support built dramatically among Democratic insiders like incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) as head of the Democratic National Committee.
Mike Pence Emerging as a Commanding Figure in Trump Administration
Given the dearth of hands-on Washington experience in the inner circle of President-elect Donald J. Trump, Mr. Pence, a former Republican congressman, is emerging as a commanding figure in the administration taking shape as well as the chief conduit between Capitol Hill and the White House.
“My guess is he will be one of the most involved, day-to-day, managerial vice presidents in the history of the republic,” said Representative Jeb Hensarling, a senior Republican from Texas and a close ally from Mr. Pence’s days on Capitol Hill.
Black Trump Supporter’s ‘Apology’ To Liberals Is Laugh-Out-Loud Hilarious
Davis opened by addressing his video to “all of the Trump haters, all of the Hillary Clinton supporters and all of the people who said my Trump was going to lose.”

UN chief confident Trump will drop rhetoric, show leadership
DON’T COUNT ON IT
United Nations (United States) (AFP) – UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon voiced confidence on Friday that Donald Trump will shed the strident rhetoric that propelled him to the White House and engage with the world to confront global crises like climate change.

‘She Couldn’t Stop Crying’: Hillary Clinton Was ‘Inconsolable’ After Losing The Election To Donald Trump
Her life-long dream of total and complete power was shattered for the second and final time. I can’t find one molecule of sympathy for her. Off to the dustbin.
CNN: Tea Party Patriots Warn Against Priebus for Chief of Staff
“No Washington insider, regardless of who it is, should serve as President Trump’s chief of staff,” Martin said. “Appointing Reince Priebus (or any other DC establishment insider) would make it more difficult, not less, for President Trump to achieve the change the people voted for. It’s time to drain the swamp — not promote insiders beholden to the Washington establishment who helped create it.”
Trump Won Because ‘Racism’? NO, YOU IDIOT!! | Louder With Crowder
Bill Maher asks President-elect Trump to appear on his show
WHY WOULD THE PRESIDENT GIVE A FOUL-MOUTHED, TWO-BIT PUNK LIKE YOU THE TIME OF DAY?
“I want to take this opportunity right now to invite him on this show. … He won. He ran a vicious, vulgar campaign and I gave it back exactly in measure,” the political comedian said. “I was also vicious and vulgar but he won and he did it his way. Nobody gets to sing that song more than Donald Trump.”

Michelle Obama makes third Vogue cover appearance
The cover shows the first lady reclining on the grass in the South Lawn garden, her hair loose and her elbows propped up on a flower bed.
Inside the magazine, Obama describes a wistfulness at leaving White House life behind.
THIS DRIVEL IS ENOUGH TO TURN A HEALTHY GOAT SICK. SO GLAD WE’RE ALMOST RID OF THIS REPULSIVE BOVINE.
Obama’s ‘legacy’ drive lost Florida for Clinton
“Pride goeth before destruction,” Proverbs 16:18 reminds us, and so it was in this election.
The evidence is mounting that President Obama’s overzealous defense of his “opening Cuba” gambit cost Hillary Clinton the state of Florida. That misstep could end up wiping out most of the president’s carefully curated “legacy” achievements.
Then in late October, President Obama went for broke and decided to stick a bigger needle in his opponents’ eye.
He lifted limits on the import of cigars and rum, and then ordered our ambassador to the United Nations to abstain from a vote condemning the US economic embargo on Cuba
SF bracing in case Trump cuts federal funds over sanctuary status
Mayor Ed Lee and San Francisco politicians are bracing for what President-elect Donald Trump lists as one of his main priorities: blocking “all federal funding” for sanctuary cities.
Of that money, $478 million comes directly from the federal government. The balance comes from the federal government via the state of California. The city’s current budget is $9.6 billion.
City officials are making contingency plans in case that money disappears.
Who’s Laughing Now? — This Compilation Of The Media S**t Talking Trump Is The Cherry On Top
TV’s finest have spent the past two and a half days walking back months of Trump ridicule, but like elephants, the Internet video wizards don’t forget.
Let’s review a few of their greatest hits.
108,600 Votes Swing 46 Electoral College Votes to Donald Trump
Grannyism: If a bullfrog had wings he wouldn’t bump his ass
Trump won Pennsylvania, with its 20 electoral college votes, by 68,236 votes, Wisconsin, with its 10 electoral college votes, by 27,257 votes, and Michigan, with its 16 electoral college votes, by 13,107 votes.
Had those 108,600 votes gone to Hillary Clinton, she would have won the presidency with a a 278 to 260 electoral college victory over Trump.
Sitting here pondering events of the past week some things struck me about the difference in the paths the present and future presidents have taken to fulfill their destinies.Their personal histories,it seems,give an insight into their leadership capabilities as ostensibly the most powerful man in the world.
Barack Obama was educated at the finest private school in Hawaii,thanks to his grandmother who he later referred to as ‘a typical white woman.’He realized at a young age that being part white got him no special treatment.Claiming to be first foreign-born,then black he rode the affirmative action bus all the way to Harvard.He was made head of the Law Review strictly because of his race.He never wrote even a single article that was published.He’s always been notoriously lazy and has had everything,including the presidency handed to him without much effort on his own part.
He had all his records sealed by court order before he started hi political career.Virtually nothing was known about him at the time and the media wasn’t about to tell anybody what he really was.As a student of Saul Alinsky he ruled for 8 miserable years,almost by fiat.It took almost the full first two years to shove Obamacare down the nations’ throat,even with majorities in both chambers.His arrogance would not allow him to accept someone else could be smarter than he was.Not his generals,not his finance experts,not his foreign policy people.He did what he wanted to,when he wanted,then he squeezed in some 300 rounds of golf and monthly vacation trips for he and his brood,all without a word of dissent from his willing accomplices in the press.
Now comes president-elect Donald Trump.Son of a millionaire,he studied business and went on to create an empire of his own.His life has always been an open book and he has no secrets.Unlike nearly every politician on the Hill who got a degree in political science before they went about getting elected to public office so they could get fabulously wealthy without ever actually accomplishing anything.We know everything about Trump,since he was thoroughly vetted before he ever ran for office.He tapped into the frustration and the rage of 60 million people who were tired of being preached to,ridiculed and burdened with onerous regulations that made life almost unlivable.
Unlike Obama,Trump has run businesses before,met payrolls and knows how to get the best bang for the buck.I’m confident he will surround himself with people who are capable of doing what must be done and getting results.Delegating responsibility is a basic tenet of running a successful company.One man had everything handed to him,had the full support of the entire radical left and never did anything to make the lives of ordinary(straight,white,Christians)any better.He made no secret of the contempt he held them in.
There is no way to gauge what kind of president Trump will be but he has the tools and the support to make this country great again.We’ll see soon enough what life will be like.At this point avoiding having to listen to the shrill cackling of pompous wanna-be queen is enough for me.
