Trump Base Still Expanding – Blue Collar Workers Optimistic…

The Conservative Treehouse ^ | Nov 3, 2016 | Sundance 

As the Democrat Party continues to debate how to regain their relevance, the Trump coalition continues to grow even after the election. Donald Trump’s political influence as a businessman, now President-elect, exists in that rare authentic space where traditional politicians have consistently failed.
Not only is Trump completely reshaping the republican party, more importantly he’s establishing a coalition that will overwhelm any DC opposition in the short-term, and make any political opposition futile in the long-term. Legendary winning!

Dem Blame Game Rages Over Clinton Loss ^ | 12/04/16 

Almost a month after Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump, recriminations are still flying among liberals and Democrats.
At least one prominent Clinton loyalist has turned his fire on Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), arguing that the left-winger’s challenge wounded the former secretary of State ahead of her general election campaign.
Sanders partisans, meanwhile, say that he would have been a better candidate than Clinton to win over an electorate hungry for change.
Both sides express concern that re-litigating the primary battle could be a distraction, wasting energy that would be better spent resisting President-elect Trump.
But even if all sides agree in theory on the need to focus on Trump, not everyone is ready to leave the primary in the past.
Peter Daou, the former chief executive of Shareblue, an online venture described by the New York Times as “Hillary Clinton’s outrage machine,” blasted Sanders on Twitter this week.
“I’ll be crystal clear: Bernie Sanders has absolutely no business determining the course of the Democratic Party after the harm he did to us,” Daou wrote in one tweet.

Stop Obsessing Over the Meaningless Popular Vote!

Canada Free Press ^ | 12/04/16 | Greg Penglis 

Hillary won a plurality, nothing more, but lost the election. That's the way it is.

I am quite fascinated with the obsession the Left currently has with the popular vote for President. As usual this is a matter of expediency, desperation to get their own way given the results of the election, and the usual public deception for how our system actually works.

There certainly isn’t a shred of principle involved. So let’s investigate this a bit:

We are a Republic, thank God, not a Democracy, so the popular vote is irrelevant to presidential elections. It simply doesn’t matter, it is meaningless, so talking about it is just an obsession with nothing. We elect by Electoral College, a brilliant system that involves the whole country in the election, and not just a few big, urban cities full of government dependent Democrats.

The system is designed to make the best decision for President, and in this case it worked perfectly.

These LEFTISTS said they would leave if Trump was elected!

Rep. McCaul: Yes, we will build a wall, put Mexico on a “payment plan” and enforce the law

Fox News ^ | December 2, 2016 | Michael McCaul 

Donald Trump campaigned on a big promise: he would secure our border and confront the illegal immigration crisis head-on.
A lot of people doubted him. And why not? Politicians have been promising to do this for years, and they have let Americans down every single time.
That’s all about to change. Starting next month, the people are going to get what they asked for.
We are going to build the wall. Period. In the process, I pledge to stand side-by-side with the Trump administration to throw out Obama’s reckless immigration policies and start enforcing our nation’s laws.
In fact, we are already starting to work on an emergency plan in Congress to build the tough barriers we need along the border, close all gaps, and defend this country’s sovereignty.
But we are talking about more than just a wall. We are talking about a historic, multi-layered defense system so that drug cartels and terrorists cannot simply slip through the cracks.
This means more border patrol agents, new authorities, aerial surveillance, sensors, and other technology to make sure we seal our territory from illegals for good.
We will take a military-style approach by giving our border and immigration agencies the real command-and-control they need to make it happen...

Here are some of the best from Trump’s future secretary of defense:

On war protesters: 
“When you men get home and face an anti-war protester, look at him in the eyes and shake his hand. Then, wink at his girlfriend because she knows she’s dating a pussy.”
On the importance of artillery:
“I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes. If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all.”
Mattis delivered this gem after the invasion of Iraq in 2003 while meeting with Iraqi elders in his unit’s area of operations.
On woman-beaters:
“You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain’t got no manhood left anyway. So it’s a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually it’s quite fun to fight them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right up there with you. I like brawling.”
Mattis offered these thoughts on domestic abuse during a panel discussion Feb. 1, 2005.
On manners:
“Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.”
Mattis gave his Marines this piece of advice while in Iraq.
On terrorist retirement:
“There is only one ‘retirement plan’ for terrorists.”
Mattis gave us this thought in 2004 while in Iraq.
On assholes:
“That said, there are some assholes in the world that just need to be shot. There are hunters and there are victims. By your discipline, cunning, obedience and alertness, you will decide if you are a hunter or a victim. It’s really a hell of a lot of fun. You’re gonna have a blast out here!
“Mad Dog” delivered this comment during a gathering of 200 Marines.
On history:
“I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years.”

Democrats Remain Stuck On Stupid! ^ | December 3, 2016 | Jeff Crouere 

In the aftermath of another devastating electoral loss, Democrats have not learned their lessons very well. In the U.S. Senate, Democrats elected 66-year old Chuck Schumer of New York as their Minority Leader, replacing the outgoing Harry Reid of Nevada. Schumer will offer more East Coast liberal leadership to a party that desperately needs to move ideologically to the center and geographically to the country’s heartland.
In an even worse move, House Democrats re-elected super liberal Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco as their Minority Leader. Pelosi has been leading House Democrats since 2003 and has been at the helm as her party has lost control of the House. Despite her horrible track record, Pelosi defeated Representative Tim Ryan of Ohio by a comfortable 134-63 margin in a closed-door session. In response to Pelosi’s re-election, Donald Trump’s Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway tweeted, "What a relief. I was worried they had learned from the elections & might be competitive and cohesive again."
Of course, Conway is right: Democrats remain stuck on stupid. Instead of expanding their base, they chose to remain wedded to political correctness and hard core liberal leadership. Soon, they will name a new Democratic National Committee Chairman, and the leading candidate is radical Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN), a former spokesman for the Nation of Islam, who once praised anti-Semitic Minister Louis Farrakhan as a “role model for youth.”
If Ellison is elected, the Democrats will have the type of leadership team that will have little chance to win back Rust Belt voters who defected to Trump in the presidential election. Hillary Clinton was unable to inspire blue collar Democrats and they voted for Trump in surprising numbers, even turning Michigan into a red state.
Despite her devastating loss to Trump, there is some speculation that Clinton is contemplating a third presidential run in 2020. This could be why her lawyers are participating in the Wisconsin recount effort. Republicans should be delighted at the news that a two-time loser who has failed at every job she has ever held would be itching to run for President again in four years.
Instead of Hillary making another presidential run, Democrats need to figure out why they keep losing elections. Since 2010, Democrats have lost three national elections, with their only victory coming in 2012 when voters returned President Obama to the White House.
Democrats are now in the minority in both the House and Senate in the U.S. Congress. On Saturday December 10, it will get even worse for Democrats as Louisiana voters will almost certainly elect Republican State Treasurer John Kennedy to the Senate seat. This will give Democrats only 48 seats in the upper body, a major disappointment. This was the year that Democrats were supposed to make huge inroads in the Senate, since Republicans were defending 24 of 34 seats. Instead they will gain a mere two seats. On the House side, the Republicans will control approximately 241 seats, a strong majority once again.
Democrats have also suffered greatly at the state level with only 18 governors and the control of only 13 state legislatures. In fact, the Democratic Party of 2016 is a minority party with power bases on both coasts and in major cities. In between, the country is a sea of red as exemplified by the Trump presidential victory. He won 306 electoral votes in 31 states, whereas Hillary Clinton only won 232 electoral votes in 19 states.
Democrats will maintain that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote with a margin of 2.1 million votes, but that number will not win the presidency. In 2000, Al Gore also won the popular vote and lost the presidential election. In fact, this election is the fifth time in U.S. history that a president has been elected while losing the popular vote.
Democrats can continue to focus on the “popular vote victory” and a recount effort, but a better use of time would be to investigate what has happened to a party that a mere 8 years ago, wielded tremendous influence throughout the country.
Maybe sensible Democrats will realize that the Obama presidency has harmed their party tremendously, leading to losses throughout the country. The President’s agenda has been rejected by the American people who do not like his policies such as Obamacare, higher taxes, more regulation, open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens.
As president, Trump is promising to pursue popular policies that will turn back many of these Obama initiatives. This will only increase the troubles for the Democrat Party moving forward. Democrats are no longer the party of the working class, but the party of radical progressives, illegal aliens and special interests. In this election, Trump captured working class support from voters in Rust Belt states that had not voted for the GOP in a generation or more. Clearly, Trump will need to deliver for the working-class voters who entrusted him with the White House; however, assuming he is successful, the Democrats may be in the political wilderness for many years to come.

Obama sneaks $4 billion for illegals in lame duck budget

The Washington Examiner ^ | December 2, 2016 | Paul Bedard 

Specifically, $1 billion would provide "cash and medical expenses and social services" for illegals and refugees.

Another $2.82 billion would fund the care of youths flooding across the border in historic numbers. "HHS is experiencing the highest number of unaccompanied children in care and the largest footprint of funded capacity in the program's history, and flows of unaccompanied children have continued to grow over the last months," said the administration's documents.

That increase, which has shocked many immigration critics on Capitol Hill, is far more than the $1.4 billion increase the administration sought for veterans health care in the Fiscal 2017 budget.

Anyone Who Gets The Media So Wee-Weed Up Is Doing Something Right

Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 12-3-2016 | MOTUS 

I hereby bestow my Column of the Week – on second thought make that of the Century – award to Roger L. Simon for this: Panic in Progressive Park: What If He’s Actually Good? 

And while Roger’s columns are generally award worthy simply because of his command of the English language this award is for being the first to acknowledge a very real possibility: Donald Trump may just turn out to be a great president:
Reason for the panic -- the dawning realization, repressed and often unrecognized though it may be, that Donald Trump may even a be a good president, possibly a great one.
Contemplate for a moment what the world will look like if Donald Trump accomplishes even half of what he promised. A hundred years hence historians will marvel at the impact just one man had on the course of history. The 2016 election will be seen as the 21st century’s pivot point; the precise moment at which the pendulum on it’s racing arc towards “progressivism” suddenly stopped and began the journey back towards individual autonomy – a place once known as “America.”
Trump’s election will be taught to future students of political science as the point in human history where the people decided to take the path that leads back to American values.
road-splitPath to American values: turn right and stay on track
Where liberty means more individual freedom and less intrusive government. Where equality once again means equal opportunity not forced equal outcome. Where justice requires that the Constitution be upheld and laws enforced, and rogue Federal Agencies are punished for unlawfully abridging citizens rights.
November 8, 2016  will be marked as the point where the debilitating adherence to political correctness began to reverse course. The point where words began to mean what they were intended to mean once again, enabling meaningful communication between people who disagree.
It will be seen as the point at which the West was finally able to name and condemn Islamic-fascism as the evil ideology it is in order to annihilate it - along with all the bastards who propagated it.
And let it be noted that like the Founders who preceded him by nearly 250 years, Donald J. Trump has also risked his life, his fortune and his honor to help re-create the greatest nation the world has ever known.
Some of us appreciate that. However until such time as history reflects favorably on Donald J. Trump he shall be known to America’s journalists, aka Democratic operatives with by-lines, as the white supremacist who said “pussy.”
All I know is that anyone who can get both the media and our other enemies so wee-weed up must be doing something right:
Prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay military prison in Cuba “thought it was the end of the world” the night of the presidential election and asked their guards for tranquilizers and sleeping pills, CBS correspondent Margaret Brennan reported Thursday. – Free Beacon
Thank’s Obama! You’ve made us ready to MAGA.

5 Reasons Barack Obama Will Be Viewed As One Of The Worst Presidents of All Time

Townhall ^ | Dec 03, 2016 | John Hawkins 

Compiling a list of reasons why Barack Obama is a terrible president seems like a project for a book rather than a column. However, when we start looking at the catastrophic mistakes he’s made that may reverberate for years to come, it’s clear that he’s been a disaster for America on a scale that few other Presidents can match. Just look at his record.
(Excerpt) Read more at ...

The author's five reasons:1) Nearly Doubling The National Debt
2) Unleashing The Genie From The Nuclear Weapons Bottle In The Middle East
3) Facilitating Illegal Immigration
4) Encouraging Racial Polarization
5) Losing A War We Had Already Won In Iraq
There are several other reasons why Obama is the worst president ever. A few of them are:
Undermining and weakening the American military
Creating the genocide against Christians in the middle east
Encouraging violent attacks on police officers and inviting BLM thugs to the White House
Providing guns to Mexican drug cartels
Poisoning America's relationships with Russia, Great Britain and many other countries
Encouraging drug trafficking in the U.S.
Encouraging companies to send American jobs overseas
Causing the VA to mistreat veterans
There are many others. Obama is the worst president in the history of the U.S. 

Conservative on Obama: ‘We Have Been Living Under a Dictatorial Tyrant For The Last 8 Years’

Cybercast News Service ^ | December 2, 2016 | 5:29 PM EST | Penny Starr 

Conservative attorney Cleta Mitchell said on Friday that Barack Obama has acted more like a dictator than a president, and that President-elect Donald Trump should make it a priority to “restore the rule of law.”

“We have been living under a dictatorial tyrant for the last eight years,” Mitchell said at the Conservative Women’s Network event, co-hosted by the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute and the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C.

“And one of the most important things that Donald Trump can do as president is to restore the rule of law,” Mitchell said. …

DOJ confirms: Bergdahl requests pardon from President Obama, US officials

Fox News ^ | December 02, 2016 | Lucas Tomlinson 

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl--held captive for five years after being captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan--has requested a pardon from President Obama, Fox News has learned from two senior US officials.
According to a well-placed source, Bergdahl thanked the president for rescuing him in May 2014 in a controversial exchange for five Taliban prisoners from Gitmo, in addition to asking for a pardon in the letter.
The Secretary of the Army was copied on the letter to the president, but the pardon was not formally requested through the military chain of command.
A Justice Department official confirms that it received a pardonpetition from Bergdahl. Pentagon and White House officials would not immediately respond for comment.
Bergdahl’s pardon letter was sent to the president via the Department of Justice, officials said. There was no immediate comment from DOJ.
Reached by phone, Eugene R. Fidell, the attorney representing Sgt. Bergdahl, would not comment on the letter.

Must Read: Retired Marine Destroys NFL Players Who Disrespect America’s VETERANS

Political insider ^ | Col Jeffery Powers USMC 

A retired Marine Colonel’s open letter to the commissioner of the NFL about recent protests of the national anthem is going viral. The Marine thoroughly and consistently destroyed Roger Goodell for lacking the “moral courage and respect” it takes to do something about players disrespecting our military heroes by sitting down during the national anthem.
Retired Marine Col. Jeffrey A. Powers went hard after Goodell, whose spineless inaction against these players says an awful lot about his own level of patriotism and respect for our veterans.The NFL consists of “multi-millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game,” Powers wrote, and now they “disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for.”
The retired Marine also correctly pointed out that cloaking this disrespect in First Amendment arguments is nonsense. The NFL is a business, and they can fine employees for violating codes of conduct. They do it all the time.
“You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fist in the air,” he seethed.
Powers challenged Goodell directly, saying “You lack the moral courage and respect for our nation and the fallen to put an immediate stop to this.”
The entire letter can be read at Allen West’s website and is well worth taking a look below …
Commissioner, I’ve been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and Giants Stadium.
I missed the ’90-’91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt Garrett Mongrella, was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.
Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins.
Now I watch multi-millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for. They are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country beside playing with a ball and believing they’re something special! They’re not! My Marines and Soldiers were!
You are complicit in this! You’ll fine players for large and small infractions but you lack the moral courage and respect for our nation and the fallen to put an immediate stop to this. Yes, I know, it’s their 1st Amendment right to behave in such a despicable manner.
What would happen if they came out and disrespected you or the refs publicly?
I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that’s much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National Anthem. Hmmmmm, isn’t it his 1st Amendment right to express himself like an idiot in the end zone?
Why is taunting not allowed yet taunting America is OK? You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fist in the air. They are so deprived with their multi-million dollar contracts for playing a freaking game!
You condone it all by your refusal to act. You’re just as bad and disgusting as they are. I hope Americans boycott any sponsor who supports that rabble you call the NFL. I hope they turn off the TV when any team that allowed this disrespect to occur, without consequence, on the sidelines. I applaud those who have not.
Legends and heroes do NOT wear shoulder pads. They wear body armor and carry rifles.
They make minimum wage and spend months and years away from their families. They don’t do it for an hour on Sunday. They do it 24/7 often with lead, not footballs, coming in their direction. They watch their brothers carted off in pieces not on a gurney to get their knee iced. They don’t even have ice! Many don’t have legs or arms.
Some wear blue and risk their lives daily on the streets of America. They wear fire helmets and go upstairs into the fire rather than down to safety. On 9-11, hundreds vanished. They are the heroes.
I hope that your high paid protesting pretty boys and you look in that mirror when you shave tomorrow and see what you really are, legends in your own minds. You need to hit the road and take those worms with you!
Time to change the channel. Goodell has long been ruining football with liberal concepts, and allowing NFL players to disrespect the national anthem while fining them repeatedly for trying to honor 9/11 victims or police officers killed in the line of duty is just the latest example.

What 'are so many of them doing?' 95 million not in US labor force

CNBC ^ | 12/2/16 | Jeff Cox

The November jobs report looked pretty good on the surface except for one number that popped off the page: 95 million.
That's the number of Americans now counted as not in the labor force, a historic high that has confounded economists and policymakers. The total — 95.06 million to be more exact — has been rising consistently but surged by a gaudy 446,000 last month.
The jump occurred as the U.S. economy added 178,000 jobs and the headline unemployment rate dropped sharply.
Explaining the consistent increase in those leaving the labor force is complicated, with factors divided between an aging and rapidly retiring workforce, a skills gap that leaves job openings unfilled, and the nettlesome problem of too many people who find it's just easier to collect welfare and other transfer payments rather than go back to work.
"WTF are so many of them doing?" Peter Boockvar, chief market analyst at The Lindsey Group, said in a note after the nonfarm payrolls report. Boockvar used a crude online expression that nicely sums up the continued frustration with America's shrinking labor force. In a subsequent interview, he acknowledged the issue is many pronged and poses a long-term obstacle for economic growth.
"It's a combination. There's no question a lot of them are retirees," Boockvar said. "No one wants to say, 'I want to get fired and sit on my butt.' But when people do lose their jobs, they're not being incentivized enough to go back to work compared to the benefits they get by not being at work."

An Open Letter to Jennifer Palmieri

US Defense Watch ^ | December 2, 2016 | Ray Starmann 

Reports of your heated exchange with President-Elect Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway at the Harvard post-election forum have been rampaging through the mainstream and alternate media like a five alarm fire for the last 24 hours.
Apparently, during the forum, you accused Mr. Trump and Ms. Conway of ‘providing a platform for white supremacists’ during the election.
I seriously doubt that the 62.6 million Americans who voted for Mr. Trump were all white supremacists.
But, that’s how liberals operate. Anyone that doesn’t agree with your warped, Eurocrap vision for America is a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, an Islamophobe or whatever term you can conjure up in your twisted minds at the time.
Let me explain to you why Donald Trump is going to be the next President and why your candidate, Hillary Clinton, is already a has been, disappearing in the rear view mirror of the flyover country she so despises.
To begin with, the Russians, the FSB, Vladmir Putin and any ghosts of the KGB, the GRU, the NKVD and Smersh had nothing to do with Hillary’s loss. There was no hacking, there were no electronic counter-measures emanating from the Rodina to put a lance in the hopes of millions of organic liberals. In fact, Ms. Palmieri, President Obama’s press secretary, Josh Earnest stated this fact again during a presser held yesterday.
Hillary Clinton didn’t lose the election because Infowars, Drudge and Breitbart were pumping out fake news 24/7. In fact, the only fake news beaming through the airwaves has and is coming from your allies in liberalism, your Democratic Party operatives at CNN and other leftist media outlets.
You lost the election because your candidate’s message was ‘Vote for me, because I’m entitled to it,’ and who campaigned as if she was the Duchess of Chappaqua, awaiting her crowning ceremony on Pennsylvania Avenue.
You lost the election because your candidate is a mendacious, rotten human being who emanates dishonesty and corruption with all the subtlety of a cornered skunk.
You lost the election because your candidate made it all too clear that she thinks that We the People are deplorable and beneath her worshipness’ dignity.
You lost because the economy is a complete and total disaster under Obama and your party’s solution to 94 million people out of the workforce and 50 million Americans living in poverty was ‘let the good times roll.’
You lost the election because Americans have had it with open borders and the subsequent loss of blue collar jobs and plummeting wages.
You lost the election because Americans aren’t going to let this country be invaded by Muslim hordes whose only goals are to turn the Judeo-Christian world upside down.
You lost the election because Americans weren’t going to surrender their firearms like the good people of Britain and Australia and France.
You lost the election because Americans are sick of your party shoving political correctness down our throats.
You lost the election because Americans were sick and tired of watching the US military being humiliated around the world.
You lost the election because President Obama’s Secretary of Defense and Secretaries of the Navy and Army’s number one priorities are gender neutrality, gender reassignment surgery and distributing breastfeeding memos to Delta Force, while pursuing the lunatic idea of placing women in the combat arms and special operations forces.
You lost because Obamacare cares for no one and is the biggest fiasco in US government history.
You lost because the average American doesn’t want his 8 year old daughter using the bathroom at Target with a 55 year old trannie named Fred.
Congratulations Ms. Palmieri, you’ve got yourself a bi coastal party that has no relation to the Democratic Party of yesteryear, and only to the counter culture antics of Timothy Leary and the political dogma of Lenin. In essence, your party is kaput with a capital K in the minds and pocketbooks of those Americans you detest, those bitter clingers.
You lost because your party’s motto is ‘Promise Everything, Deliver Nothing and Blame Someone Else.’
Get used to saying President Trump.

Kellyanne Conway Would Be A Feminist Hero If She Were A Democrat!

The Federalist ^ | December 1, 2016 | Julie Kelly 

If you’re a woman still anguishing over “what to tell our daughters” about the 2016 election, I suggest you point to Kellyanne Conway: the first woman to run a successful presidential campaign. This smart, tough, cool mom of four was the winning campaign manager for the most brutal presidential race in history—and she kept a steely smile on her face the whole time. She’s now poised to become either White House press secretary, or the most sought-after political consultant in the world.

After taking the helm of the listless Trump campaign in August, Conway helped shape a more disciplined candidate, with a message focused on a stronger economy and national defense. Conway is like the pretty brainiac who tamed the school jock, got him to shut up in class, and made him carry her books. Hell, she even got him to study once in a while. She’s the kind of example I want for my own daughters on how to handle an egotistical, sometimes boorish male boss: with firmness, class, and calm..

Funding Leftist Frenzy

Frontpage ^ | December 1, 2016 | Deborah Weiss 

In anticipation of a Trump loss, Hillary Clinton and her cohorts professed that anything other than graceful acceptance of the loss would “threaten democracy.”  But now that Trump has won, the left has hypocritically become unhinged.  After violent protests, petitions to eradicate the electoral college, and coddling college age students to miss class, delay exams and obtain psychotherapy to deal with the “trauma” of the election results, liberal political elites are in fear that the left will at last, calm down and accept the results.  They cannot accept such complacency.   Democrats got defeated in a sweep across the nation, with Republicans winning over two thirds of the governorships and making a record number of wins in state legislatures, 32 of which will have Republican control in both of their legislative chambers.   But this isn’t enough to convince far leftists like Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein, that those who are upset by the results should just get a grip and learn to accept them.  After all, every election, there is a winner and a loser. That’s our system.  Instead, Stein is demanding recounts in several key blue states that have swung in favor of Trump this year.  In order for the results to yield a different outcome, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan would all have to be overturned. That is not going to happen.  Despite Stein’s efforts, the result is a foregone conclusion: Trump will still be President.

Live by identity politics, die by identity politics

Flopping Aces ^ | 12-02-16 | DrJohn 

For all of barack obama's tenure as President of the US democrats have savaged every criticism of obama as racism. It was the multi-tool dog whistle, blown at every opportunity.

Eric Holder, the AG for "my people" , saw racism in every obama criticism.

hillary clinton saw racism in opposing obama.

The infection spread even to ESPN.

It never stopped:
Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years.  “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?”  It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?”It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism.
For the first time in U.S. history, are Americans required to submit to their president's agenda or suffer the mainstream media and Democratic party branding an R on their forehead for racist?  Does our president's skin color repeal our right to disagree with government?
The MSM and Democratic Party declaring all opposition to Obama's agenda racist is a despicable divisive tactic.  They are exploiting Obama's skin color to further their socialist/progressive agenda (full-court press hostile government takeover of our lives).
Another question repeatedly asked by reporters is, “If the Tea Party is not racist, why are its members mostly white?”  I reply, “Could it be that a majority of black voters are ill-informed, clueless, and/or racist?  Why are you making the Tea Party responsible for blacks not showing up?”
In 2008, when I heard presidential candidate Barack Obama tell Joe-the-Plumber that he wanted to spread the wealth around, I knew Obama was a socialist and the wrong man to lead my country.
To my utter amazement, who Obama is as a human being and his plan for America were totally irrelevant to my family, my friends, and 96% of black voters, including some black conservatives and Republicans.  It was a black code thing.  Support the brother no matter what.
We weren't allowed to disagree with obama without being vilified. We weren't allowed to object to his apologizing for the United States in Arab countries or to the stimulus we knew would fail or to his shoving obamacare down our throats when we knew it would fail or to his paying ransom to Iran or to his constant lying. We aren't permitted to object to obama throwing open the borders to illegals and the costs imposed upon us for his largess. We can't be fed up with obama's galactically sized ego and his insufferable narcissism.
No, we weren't allowed any of that because it would immediately cause the racism dog whistle to be blown despite the fact that absolutely none of it had anything to do with race. Race became the tool to beat down the opposition. It was the means to the end. Kevin Jackson:
Consider that nobody is ever accused of being racist for disagreeing with white presidents. Mexicans disagreed with most white Republican presidents over America’s immigration policy. Many deranged Mexicans believe we should open the country up to them, some saying that much of America belongs to Mexico anyway. They are not called racists.Liberal blacks have disagreed with most Republican presidents since Eisenhower, yet these blacks are not considered racists. In fact, when blacks had sanity and disagreed with the policies of racist white Democrat presidents, nobody accused black people of being racists.
Fighting for one’s civil rights was not racist then, nor is it racist now. Blacks (and Republicans) were on the side of righteousness, when they disagreed with the racist policies of Andrew Johnson, and adopted by every Democrat president since.
Never has a black person been called racist, because they didn’t like one of the white presidents’ policies. Blacks were just exercising their First Amendment rights to speak freely. Blacks have disagreed with policy positions of about every Republican president in the modern era, including those who have helped them.
democrats have lived on identity politics for eight years and they show no signs of abandoning it. They are so infected with it that they are using it to indoctrinate and ruin their children over the loss of an election.
Well, with the departure of obama the "racism" identity politics theme has thankfully expired and a new one is required for the left.
Enter "white supremacist."

Here's How Many Manufacturing Jobs We've Lost Since Obama Took Office ^ | December 2, 2016 | Cortney O'Brien 

As the media begins to draw a pretty picture about the November jobs report, namely that unemployment has dropped to 4.6 percent, its lowest level in nine years, they are unlikely to tell you the other part of the story. The labor force participation rate continues to decline and is stuck at a rate we haven't seen since February 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
It gets worse. Last month, we lost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, offering more damage to the already 301,000 we've lost since President Obama took office. The Republican National Committee says that is going to change under President-elect Donald Trump, who has already brought 1,000 of those manufacturing jobs back.
“The 4,000 manufacturing jobs that disappeared last month come on top of the over 300,000 that have been lost under President Obama, more proof that President-elect Donald Trump’s efforts to stand up for the American worker is the commitment our country needs right now,” said RNC Co-Chair Sharon Day in a statement on Friday. “This election showed that millions of Americans don’t trust Democrats to create good jobs and opportunity, and President-elect Trump’s determination to save 1,000 jobs in Indiana is just a preview of his agenda of prosperity for all. Even before taking office, President-elect Trump has proven that protecting and creating jobs will be among his highest priorities as president, and Americans who have spent years struggling under President Obama can look forward to a brighter future for themselves and their families.”
Just for giggles, here's a flashback of Obama mocking Trump for needing a miracle to keep Carrier jobs in the U.S.

Feds halt new citizenship approvals after Obama admin’s gaffe on background checks

Washington Times ^ | December 2, 2016 | Stephen Dinan 

The government suspended naturalization ceremonies and banned officers from approving any new applications for citizenship earlier this week after realizing its background check system was broken and ineligible people may have been slipping through, a key congressman revealed Friday.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, whose office was tipped off to the monumental error, said he was stunned by the problem — and also by the fact that the administration never bothered to inform him of it.
At this point we are not confident that proper FBI Name Checks have been run on certain ELIS cases. At this point we are uncertain of the scope of the problem,” Daniel M. Renaud, the associate director..
FBI name checks are a critical part of the application process, giving immigration officers a look at potential criminal histories or other national security red flags that would make someone ineligible for citizenship.
Mr. Goodlatte demanded USCIS detail when it discovered the problem and how many cases were affected, and said the agency should take steps to strip citizenship from anyone who shouldn’t have been approved.

It's Obama, Not the American People, Who Won't Listen ^ | December 2, 2016 | David Limbaugh 

You have to give President Barack Obama credit for one thing: consistency. Nothing is ever his fault. Nothing will ever be his fault. Faulting Fox News and the American people, on the other hand, now that's a different story.
Do you remember when Obama traipsed around the country and desperately pleaded with Americans to vote for Hillary Clinton because his agenda and his legacy were on the ballot? He made a similar pitch before the shellacking his party took in the 2014 congressional elections.
Yet did he acknowledge after this 2014 failing that he had anything to do with it? Does he own up to his leading role in last month's presidential election?
Let's rewind the tape further, to Obama's reaction to his party's stunning defeat in the 2010 congressional elections, which was largely about Obamacare. He didn't acknowledge any personal culpability for visiting that monstrosity on the American people through trickery and deceit. He simply lamented that he hadn't done a good enough job getting the message out to the American people about it, despite his 50 propaganda speeches trying to persuade us to ignore our lying eyes.
Do you see the pattern here? Obama's view is that the American people -- those in the red states, anyway -- are a little slow, paranoid and bigoted and need to be brought along carefully into the 21st century, where progressivism has ushered in a new age of enlightenment. His only failing has been in inadequately re-educating the bitter clingers.
Let me give you another example. Remember Obama's depiction of the Islamic State group as "a JV team"? How about his claim, the night before the terrorist massacres in Paris, that the Islamic State was "contained"?
Did he ever acknowledge his errors there? No. Again, his only failing was in not having communicated sufficiently his counterterrorism strategies to the American people. He said his strategy against the Islamic State was working. (This was before, as I recall, his admission that he had no policy.) The problem was that saturated media coverage after the Paris attacks was fueling terror fears in the United States. He said: "We haven't, on a regular basis, I think, described all the work that we've been doing for more than a year now to defeat" the Islamic State. "If you've been watching television for the last month, all you've been seeing, all you've been hearing about is these guys with masks or black flags who are potentially coming to get you. And so I understand why people are concerned about it."
Again, there's nothing to see here. It's not a terrorism problem but a perception problem. There's no Obamacare problem; it's just that the American people don't get it.
Even liberal New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd acknowledged, in 2012, that Obama and his wife, Michelle, are condescending and aloof. The Obamas "do believe in American exceptionalism -- their own, and they feel overassaulted and underappreciated," she wrote. The Obamas haven't disappointed Americans; "we disappointed them."
Even earlier, in February 2010, Obama pledged to "listen" to Republicans at a health care summit. But, as columnist Joseph Curl wrote, "turns out he meant he'd be listening to his own voice. By the end of the televised event, Mr. Obama had spoken for 119 minutes -- nine minutes more than the 110 minutes consumed by 17 Republicans. The 21 Democratic lawmakers used 114 minutes, giving the president and his supporters a whopping 233 minutes."
And why do the rubes keep misperceiving Obama's greatness? Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity.
In a recently published interview with Rolling Stone, Obama denied that he and his party overlooked the "cohort of working-class white voters" that supposedly accounted for Donald Trump's victory. Absolutely not his fault. "Part of it," said Obama, "is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country, but part of it is also Democrats not working at a grass-roots level, being in there, showing up, making arguments."
The challenge Democrats have, according to Obama, is not that they've neglected these communities from a policy perspective. "What is true, though, is that whatever policy prescriptions that we've been proposing don't reach, are not heard by, the folks in these communities. And what they do hear is 'Obama or Hillary are trying to take away (your) guns' or 'they disrespect you.'"
I repeat: This guy is remarkably, incorrigibly consistent. He has made no policy errors; his message just isn't getting through, partly because the conservative media are lying about it and partly because people are just too darned dense.
I hate to keep bringing up the past, but his war on the conservative media is nothing new, either. I wrote about it in 2010 in my book "Crimes Against Liberty." He began snubbing Fox reporters at news conferences for insufficiently pandering. The White House blog regularly denounced Fox News and other critics. White House communications director Anita Dunn recommended a "rapid response" to counteract "Fox's blows" against the administration, calling Fox News "part of the Republican Party." Presidential adviser David Axelrod said Fox News Channel is "not really a news station."
Remember when Obamacare's principal architect, Jonathan Gruber, openly admitted that the Obama administration was able to deceive the American people about Obamacare and chalked it up to "the stupidity of the American voter"?
So go ahead and cry us a river about how the conservative media are mistreating you, Mr. Obama, and misleading the public. You have been trying to deceive us for eight years, and the public has been onto you for at least 6 1/2 of those years. Now voters have handed you your biggest spanking yet, and you still will not listen. You can't listen. It's not what you do. But the American people have been listening, and they do understand your policies. And it's a new day in America.



Bernie is on his way!
