Progressives manifest a boorish incoherent refusal to accept Donald Trump as our new president. When we see adults acting-out in orchestrated pitched frenzies encouraged by progressive cry babies, we ask if they’re capable of accepting the facts as they are. Their juvenile behavior has been on display for eight years and people are sick of it. They champion the LBGT community, identity politics, late-late term abortion, open borders, Muslims en masse and Black Lives Matter which excludes other lives which seemingly don’t matter – views that are radical and exclusionary that Americans reject. The bruising election has not produced much thoughtful dialogue from the Democrats, just a contaminated flood of unrestrained emotion. It’s no different from a whining toddler who doesn’t get his way, except in the toddler’s case, it’s normal.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence attended the mostly non-white production of ‘Hamilton’ in Manhattan. He was first booed by fellow attendees, those who could afford pricey theater tickets to the ‘hottest’ show in town and then lectured by the magisterial cast who rudely admonished him about his need to respect their idea of diversity. It was a display of progressive arrogance that tells us why so many are tired of disrespect and irreverence.
Coddled college snowflakes are escorted to safe rooms when disappointment overwhelms them. Places where communal tantrums, primal screams and a pampered inability to cope are protected.
And it isn’t just relegated to college students programmed for mental breakdowns. It’s in Jewish synagogues where Jews were encouraged to sit ‘shiva’ for their Hillary loss. No rational Jew would degradingly participate but few Jewish leaders admonish their mostly misinformed Jewish brethren by revealing that Hillary never operated in their best interests and had advisers with deep seated hostility toward Jews and Israel. Easier to castigate Trump as an anti-Semite while American-born Israeli journalist, Caroline Glick disagrees. She tells us, it is a rare moment where things that were unimaginable a month ago are possible. And if we play our cards right…….. Israel stands to gain in ways we never dreamed of.
That’s a Trump affirmation! Indeed, it’s bullish for Israel, for all Jews.
Sixty-two million came out strong to reject the status quo and vote for a different kind of leader. That’s the American way and it’s what makes our country great.
Trump’s win was a victory that a number of prescient individuals predicted. Trump won 306 electoral votes vs Hillary’s 232. He won 30 states. She won 20 and though we’ve been told she won the popular vote, if we add in the 3,000,000 illegal votes that California enabled and Obama encouraged we discover that Hillary probably did not win the popular vote. The illegal votes were commandeered to create this kind of false scenario.
Voter fraud is naturally overlooked by progressives who never deal in facts. Despite that, Jill Stein, Green Party presidential nominee, who siphoned votes from Hillary in Wisconsin and Michigan contributing to Hillary’s loss, insists on an election recount in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. She and her cohorts are suddenly consumed with rigged voting machines and bogus charges that Russian complicity could have somehow hacked our election. Stein’s fundraising website declares, Election Integrity Depends on You, an issue conveniently raised despite hypocrisy over voter fraud which includes illegal voting. Wouldn’t legitimate concern over election integrity ensure enforcement of laws that non-citizens not be allowed to vote?
What we do know is that this is more denial over an overwhelming Trump win they cannot accept? Stein’s recount is a fundraising scam and expensive exercise with zero effect.
The Clinton’s support this effort. But do they support this??
News that electoral college voters from Michigan, among other states have received life threatening messages to force them to change their votes from Trump to Clinton. Buzz Feed reports that the #NotMyPresident Alliance, a national anti-Donald Trump protest group, has released personal information of dozens of Electoral College members in states that voted Republican. That includes personal phone numbers and addresses – frightening threats that must be discouraged if not prosecuted.
These are desperate measures reflecting a refusal to accept reality as it is. Yet conservatives for eight years swallowed Obama-doled contempt which was finally repudiated though Obama operates on a decibel level no one else can hear. He will continue to march to his own narcissistic beat, much like his followers, who seem unwilling to respect Trump’s leadership. It’s likely we can expect more contempt from a president whose legacy will vanish quickly, abandoned and replaced by policies that work.
Interesting too with the defection the Democratic party sustained, there has been no party self-examination. Hillary had no message. She had nothing to say. Rather than take responsibility we watch leftist Democrats blame sexism, racism, the electoral college or James Comey who in their view impeded their success; success foretold by the mainstream media to prepare for an inescapable Hillary win. They did! Hillary loyalists bought cases of champagne and spent $2,000,000 on an extravagant barge-launched pyrotechnic fireworks display over the Hudson River for their inexorable victory!
Such hubris. Imagine their profound disappointment. A collective psychotic swoon.
And too, many Trump supporters were swindled by the spin but there were those who measured the hundreds of thousands who attended Trump’s rallies vs the few who attended hers. It didn’t add up that she was running away with the election.
The working class made Trump’s victory. No accident either and attributed to Trump’s savvy son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who executed Trump’s secret data operation with remarkable success. He moved the campaign needle forward by introducing game changing elements like message tailoring, sentiment manipulation, facebook micro-targeting, but more than that, he effectively helped direct Trump to States where last minute rallies would make all the difference. The best part: no one knew it was happening. A silent winner that helped give Trump the presidency.
Regrettably, both the Democratic party and 75% of American Jews are on the same trajectory – headed down. The Anti Defamation League’s new leader, Jonathan Greenblatt, a Soros and Obama affiliated head of this important Jewish organization that once fought anti-Semitism, now seems focused on supporting those who attack Israel. Greenblatt also supports Keith Ellison although new information buoyed by Jewish pressure suggests he is beginning to walk that back. Greenblatt’s seeming ambivalence should never have been in contention in the first place. Ellison is a leading Muslim candidate in consideration to chair the Democratic National Committee and a radical left wing ideologue with a documented history of anti-Israel advocacy.
Ellison is a bad dream consideration only Mephistopheles could dredge up. If Ellison becomes head of the DNC, it will further depress both the Democratic party and progressive American Jews who have learned nothing from the sweeping loss they both sustained.
Another loser is the liberal media who lost all credibility. They fought hard with dishonorable duplicity to dissuade any Trump supporter from stepping up. It didn’t work. They were caught in their lies and dismissed as the charlatans they are.
The recent mass slashing with a butcher’s knife and car ramming at Ohio State University in which 11 people were wounded has not yet been declared an act of terror. As usual, we were warned by Obama to not blame Muslims as if this act was unrelated to Islamic terror. Trump made clear that the now deceased attacker and ISIS follower Abdul Razak Ali Artan, an 18 year old Somali refugee and student, should not have been in our country. Trump, unlike Obama, acknowledges this enemy and will restrict or carefully vet immigrants from places where terror is more likely to occur.
This week Trump and Pence, still Governor of Indiana, saved 1,100 jobs slated for Mexico in the Indiana based Carrier plant by offering the company government incentives that allowed employees to keep their jobs. It doesn’t impact many, but it’s a start for a man who isn’t even president yet, and an affirmation that Trump intends to deliver for the working class as promised.
President Elect Trump has shown he has the ability to pick excellent cabinet members and support staff. Breitbart put it succinctly…..the president-elect is well on his way to building a conservative dream team that has Republicans cheering and liberals in despair.
My suggestion: If you’re a disgruntled Hillary supporter, it’s best to acknowledge Trump’s ‘coming’ presidency. Try to adapt. Wipe your tears and face the music.
If Trump executes as promised, and America reaps the rewards, the progressive cause will be significantly diminished. All will benefit, even those who failed to know better, and the policies they objected to may seem less objectionable given the results.
