The election of President Donald Trump is one for the record books. It’s the greatest political feat in American history, magnified by his opposition –  Hillary Clinton and the vaunted Clinton machine. She out spent President Trump by at least 10 to 1. And Donald Trump closed the deal on schedule and way under budget.

I’m out making the world safe for democracy. However I thought that I’d leave this summary for those few people who drift by the blog.

The election was a complete repudiation of Barack Obama: his fantasy world of political correctness, the politicization of the Justice Department and the I.R.S., an out-of-control E.P.A., his neutering of the military, his nonsupport of the police and his fixation on things like transgender bathrooms. Since he became president, his party has lost 63 House seats, 10 Senate seats and 14 governorships.
Preaching — and pandering — with a message of inclusion, the Democrats have instead become a party where incivility and bad manners are taken for granted, rudeness is routine, religion is mocked (except Islam) and there is absolutely no respect for a differing opinion. This did not go down well in the Midwest (fly-over country), where Trump flipped three blue states and 44 electoral votes.
Barack campaigned for Ms. Clinton (The Bitch of Benghazi) by saying that a vote for Donald Trump was a repudiation of both his presidency and his legacy. Sixty-two million Americans agreed with him when they sent President Trump to the White House. Meanwhile, the mainstream progressive media went into melt-down mode on election night. All the work that they did – the shilling for Clinton, the lies and vicious attacks against President Trump, the non-stop attacks – were all repudiated as Donald Trump was elected forty-fifth president of the United States.

Here is a short primer for the young protesters. If your preferred candidate loses, there is no need for mass hysteria, canceled midterms, safe spaces, crying rooms or group primal screams. You might understand this better if you had not received participation trophies, undeserved grades to protect your feelings or even if you had a proper understanding of civics. The Democrats are now crying that Hillary had more popular votes. That can be her participation trophy.

A few take-aways for the Democrat Party:

  • Barack’s undying love of Islam is not shared by America.
  • Transgender bathrooms are not more important than the US economy.
  • The Democrat Party has screwed the black people in America over-and-over-and-over again. They are starting to slowly wake up to that.
  • Globalism doesn’t “Trump” Americanism. We know that we are exceptional and we expect our leadership to acknowledge that.
  • Bowing and apologizing to our enemies didn’t get you anywhere, did it Barack? Vladimir thought you were a light weight and you did nothing to disabuse him of that opinion.
Here is a take away for the liberal media:
  • If your newspaper is failing because subscriptions are off, it may be because you are unfairly reporting the news.
  • The public is offended when you try and “make news” instead of reporting it.
  • Not as many people believed your lies as you had hoped.
  • Paying bloated salaries to your talking heads doesn’t give you more credibility. The size of the talking head increases as the pay increases without a corresponding improvement in quality or cogent dialog.
There were rumors that Barack would have been appointed to the US Supreme Court under a Clinton Administration and he’d be around to lecture the nation from that forum until he shuffled off this mortal coil. That is unlikely to happen now. Oh, he’ll still be featured on MSNBC for the progs that watch that channel, but he won’t do it from the bench.


  1. Great summary, LL, but I would like to make one exception, "If your newspaper is failing because subscriptions are off, it may be because you are unfairly reporting the news." I don't believe they reported the new, but, instead, reported the propaganda. They only reported the liberal, leftist side of any story, never the real story. We got more of the truth from Wikileaks than the MSM.

  2. "The Democrats are now crying that Hillary had more popular votes. That can be her participation trophy".

    Popular vote? Voter fraud is part of the (P)regressives popular strategy. Some reports of 3 million illegals voting. Absentee ballots not counted unless certain "benchmarks", i.e margin of victory not met. Military personnel serving abroad and voting absentee are probably not ardent Hillary supporters. Ad nauseum.

  3. Your messages are much more thoughtful and civil than mine, which are mostly comprised of a series of two-word expletives. Although, technically, "Now, GTFO!" is really five words.

  4. Couldn't argue with any of this, LL. Of course, that's because I am a certified, card carrying, dues paying right wing nut job, who attends all of the right wing nut job picnics (I bring three bean salad, you can never go wrong with three bean salad). Then again, I may bring a couple of family size bags of Cheetos this year, I haven't decided yet.

  5. I hope that Obama and Hillary both live a long, long time. And during their protracted lives, may they forever be reminded every day that most Americans think they are lying pieces of excrement and that they witness the distribution of history books to all levels of primary and secondary schools throughout the land that inform generations of children, those existent and those yet unborn, that they were indeed lying pieces of excrement. Forgo the dustbin of history; go straight for the cesspool.

  6. Be safe while keeping us safe, please. I enjoy your posts.
    Enjoyed this too, though as Old NFO said, none of the left will understand, I expect.
    God bless.

  7. Just don't bring anything that Aunt Sally prepared. We are clinging to the majority and don't have a lot of conservatives to lose.

  8. I think that all that is either true or likely true.

    Still, President Trump won – the progs know it and the orderly transition of power is moving forward, albeit with distractions.

  9. Podesta, Rasputin of the Clinton Flying monkeys, is looking for his next job. Maybe Chief of staff to Soros or something along that line.

  10. I would like to see Barack run out of DC on a rail, covered in tar and feathers – harkening back to a more enlightened age.

  11. Progs are self assured of their own superiority and if threatened, run to a safe space, put on a onesie, suck a thumb or drink cocoa and take crayons to a coloring book. Listening is not one of their strengths. They're much better at self deception.

  12. I will be visiting Aunt Sally this Christmas. I shudder to think of what kitchen surprises she has in store for us. Probably a nice turkey cartilage pudding; separate all the meat from the carcass, and use just the tasty leg and wing joints, you know, the chewy parts, yum.
