Michael Moore Has A 5-Point Post-US Election Plan For Democrats To Regain Power…

The uber-leftist as taken to Facebook with a "Morning After To-Do List".
As part of the 5-point plan, he lists taking over the Democrats, firing the media and remembering that Clinton won the popular vote -- meaning: "The majority of your fellow Americans wanted Hillary, not Trump."
(WRONG - and CNN admits it.) 
Since he published it 11 hours ago it has been shared more than 120,000 times.
Here's the list. 
1. Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people. They have failed us miserably. 
2. Fire all pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn't let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on. Those same bloviators will now tell us we must "heal the divide" and "come together." They will pull more hooey like that out of their ass in the days to come. Turn them off. 
3. Any Democratic member of Congress who didn't wake up this morning ready to fight, resist and obstruct in the way Republicans did against President Obama every day for eight full years must step out of the way and let those of us who know the score lead the way in stopping the meanness and the madness that's about to begin. 
4. Everyone must stop saying they are "stunned" and "shocked". What you mean to say is that you were in a bubble and weren't paying attention to your fellow Americans and their despair. YEARS of being neglected by both parties, the anger and the need for revenge against the system only grew. Along came a TV star they liked whose plan was to destroy both parties and tell them all "You're fired!" Trump's victory is no surprise. He was never a joke. Treating him as one only strengthened him. He is both a creature and a creation of the media and the media will never own that. 
5. You must say this sentence to everyone you meet today: "HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!" The MAJORITY of our fellow Americans preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Period. Fact. (WRONG - and CNN admits it.) 
The only thing true about the list the MSM. They're catching it from both ends.
But I do agree with him on one point:
Those same bloviators will now tell us we must "heal the divide" and "come together." They will pull more hooey like that out of their ass in the days to come. 
Meaning there will be NO healing. There will be NO coming together. There will be NO compromise with the opposition!
This means WAR!!
And Trump and the Elephant gang better WAKE UP to that fact and fast.

Samer Alaaeldin Mahran

From ABC:
LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- An Uber driver has been charged with raping an unconscious teenage girl in Laguna Beach, according to the Orange County District Attorney's Office. 
Officials said 23-year-old Samer Alaaeldin Mahran, of Huntington Beach, picked up a 17-year-old girl near a bar at about 2 a.m. on Saturday. 
Authorities said a family member ordered the Uber to take the teen home. The district attorney's office said Mahran picked up the girl but did not drop her off at home. 
When the teen did not arrive home, officials said a family member used the app's tracking feature to locate Mahran's vehicle. 
The family member found Mahran and the teen in the backseat of his car parked near the teen's home, according to the district attorney's office. 
Officials said Mahran knew the victim was 17 years old and sexually assaulted her while she was drunk and unconscious. Mahran climbed into the driver's seat and fled the scene as a family member helped pull her out of the car, authorities stated. 
The victim's family member called 911 and Laguna Beach police said they identified Mahran by using his description, license plate number and driver profile on the Uber app. He was arrested at his apartment in Huntington Beach later on Saturday. 
Mahran was charged with one felony count of rape by use of drugs, one felony count of forcible oral copulation upon a minor over 14 years of age, one felony count of sexual penetration of a child over age 14 by foreign object and force, and one felony count of unlawful sexual intercourse. 
He was released on $100,000 bond and was scheduled to be in court on Dec. 2.

CAIR of Los Angeles calls for the overthrow of the U.S. government and President Obama does absolutely nothing

That second line is Arabic 

(“الشعب يريد إسقاط النظام‎‎”) 


for “The people wants to bring down the regime.”

In other words, Ayloush unambiguously and directly called for the overthrow of the U.S. government. -

Barron Trump: A Male Child in the White House and a return to the concept of manhood

Barron Trump Shows His Stuff On White House Lawn

From The Last English Prince:
We have not discussed it. And it is a phenomenal thought. America has not enjoyed the experience of a man child growing up in the White House for greater than a century. I do not include John F. Kennedy, Jr. in my thoughts because he was merely a toddler when his father was assassinated. 
We have to look back at the legacy of Theodore Roosevelt, a man who took the White House and the world by storm when setting up house with his wife, two daughters, and four rambunctious boys. 
I contend that this boy in the White House, Barron Trump, will facilitate a needed cultural shift back to an appreciation of manhood…. real manhood. 
For years we have endured the girls in the White House. We have endured fashionable images, girl’s parties, girls off to college, and the occasional wedding. The whole thing has become predictably boring. 
What we have not experienced is a little boy playing a sport, chasing a dog across the White House lawn, or cutting lose with a healthy string of adolescent cuss words. What we have not enjoyed is a ten year old boy shaking the hand of Vladimir Putin and announcing “pull my finger” as he lets loose a healthy dose of gas. 
Fart jokes in the White House! I can hardly wait! 
Our popular media culture has caused a societal drift toward the emasculation of manhood. If I see one more commercial where an emasculated male screams like a little girl, I am going to choke like Mitt Romney. If I must endure one more ad where a father dresses up in a fairy costume to attend his daughter’s birthday party with “What a man…” playing in the background I am going to flee the state. 
Man conflicted about female bonding toward the male sex 
The nicest thing my father ever did for me was to buy me a beautiful dress. But he did not wear it. 
Get ready for the First Son in the White House. And hold onto your hats for the Trump boys within the halls of our seat of power. 
Eric and Donald, Jr. are confident men. Marlboro men in nice suits. Killer instincts but with a gentleman’s heart. 
Barron Trump? I can only hope that in a couple of years we awaken to the earth shattering news that Barron has been caught with a copy of “Playboy” under his mattress and that he has short-sheeted the bedding in the Lincoln bedroom prior to the occupancy of a head of state. 
Long live manhood! 
A Trump presidency will bring a restoration of honor to the concept of what it means to be a real man.

On the reporting that Americans who happen to be Jewish are running to Temple for Solace....

I think this ENTIRE line of publishing and 'reporting' is BUNK, I live in the 2nd congressional district of Maine, which for the first time split the electoral college vote of Maine and went for Trump.
The town I live in went Trump 784-444. a proportion reached by nearly every town around.
I have NEVER felt like an outsider, EVER, and I don't feel like one now.

What I feel like is one of the 59 MILLION voters who EASILY made the choice between a system in which DECLINE for my children and grandchildren (and seeing them compelled to move away to make a living) has been chosen and a SHOT at something else

What I feel like is someone under the DELUGE o
f the perceived needs and biases of huge urban cities in a growing rural economic desert, in which NO STATE TAX REDUCTIONS can makeup for the abandonment of the USA for low cost foreign labor without even the FIG LEAF of lower costs for consumers.

What I feel like is someone who made the choice (easily) between a CORRUPT CRIMINAL and someone with some reprehensible personal set of traits.

Trump traveled the nation and SAW this. That's all there is to it.

When FDR took the part of the working man, was it reported as the WHITE working man?

The idea that Trump is truly racist, anti semitic, and despises women, that americans here legally have to worry about being deported, or should leave is a product of the SAME KIND OF INCITEMENT that jews face from most of the world.

That riots are occurring after a fair democratic election is the result of this incitement.

In 2008, in 2012 there were no riots, because there was no large scale incitement, and because those in the center and right who did not care for Mr Obama's ideas WENT BACK TO THEIR LIVES. and Americans like me did not rush to Temple to seek solace.

It's disgusting. This is the system. It's worked. You don't like the result? Think up better policies

Trump Got More Votes From People Of Color Than Did Romney, LESS FROM WHITES

From the Washington Post:
Just as journalism is the first draft of history, exit polls let us take some first stabs at understanding public opinion. On the matter of politics and race, Donald Trump’s victory will provide plenty of fodder for opinion columns, in-depth survey analyses, fieldwork and historical studies. 
Given the various studies already conducted, factors such as racial resentment and immigration conservatism will likely play important roles in explaining white voting behavior, in addition to factors such as economic anxiety and distrust of political elites. 
Our understanding of race and presidential voting, however, also needs to look comparatively across groups. 
Looking at the exit poll data from the 2016 election, and comparing them over time, the story on race and presidential voting gets a bit more complicated. 
There are different benchmarks one can use to see how Trump performed compared with prior Republican nominees. 
Comparing yesterday’s results with 2012, as this Washington Post feature does, shows that Trump actually performed slightly worse among white voters than Mitt Romney did. He did, however, perform better than Romney among blacks, Latinos and Asian Americans, making it more difficult to claim that racial resentment was the dominant factor explaining Trump’s support nationally.

What He Thinks of Them

With the election of Donald Trump, the Republic has been saved……..for now.

I’ll get to that comment in a moment. First I want to tell you a little story.

A couple of three decades ago, I had a friend of mine who was a NASA engineer. I visited him at his office at NASA Ames in California. Behind his desk, like most engineers, was blackboard filled with numbers and equations.  Tacked to the wall of the top corner of the blackboard was a note that read “DO NOT ERASE” and pointed to a pristine space on the blackboard that read:


My NASA engineer knew that constant vigilance was necessary in his business. The corrosive effects of rust will always – ALWAYS -- be lurking beneath the surface.

And the corrosive effects of two decades of RINOism and Progressivism has corroded the very foundation of our society and culture.

And now, with Trump, we have a chance to reverse that process and repair SOME of the damage done to our country.


If you think these calls for unity are true  --  you are living in La La Land.

As Rush said on his show yesterday, these calls for unity are a TRAP.

Folks, there is no desire for unity by the people on the left.  It's a trap, it's a sucker play, and what makes me nervous is that we have Republicans who want to fall into that trap.  I don't know about Trump yet.  Way too soon for that….. They do not want unity.  The protests, the college snowflakes melting before our eyes? They do not want unity.  It is a sucker trap.  
It's a sucker play designed to get us to essentially act like we didn't win.  We've seen it before.  We've seen the movie!  Remember when we won the Senate and then said, "You know, it's not fair! It's not fair we should have majority," and so we gave them essentially an extra vote so the Senate would be 50-50, trying to show the American people how open-minded and fair we can be.  I made this prediction numerous times. 
And, by the way, it sounds really wonderful to say in the afterglow of an election, to talk about putting aside our differences and unifying. It sounds wonderful, and maybe that's what Americans want to hear.  I'm hoping it's just what people think they have to say right now on our side.  Look, there's a headline in The Politico today: "Obamacare Defenders Vow 'Total War.'"  They're not gonna lay down, folks.  They're not gonna unify. 


This is not the time for unity with those that are bent on destroying this country. Whether they be Progressive socialists or Islamic Fundamentalists. This is the time to place the BOOT on the NECK of the Progressives and Islamists and the running dogs that travel with them – the RINOs and the #Trumps – and never let them up to corrupt our country again.

Rush is right. We’ve seen this game before. In 2010 and 2014. The unity plead is a trap made to lure Republicans back into being little polite Lord Fauntleroys who want to play nice-nice with the virulent opposition.

Folks. The opposition will not quit. NEVER! They said so. And If Trump gives them any quarter – ANY QUARTER AT ALL! – we will allow the RUST lying beneath to re-emerge and gain power. Do you really think the riots and protests will subside when we all call for unity? Bullshit! These are organized riots – that’s what they are called, not protests –bought and paid for by Soros and his ilk and will never end no matter what olive branches s we extend. They are fascists and they know it.

The Left in the form of Progressivism, as Denise Prager has said, has ‘NO moral compass’. Right or wrong has no meaning to the Left. Logic has no meaning. Only ‘feeling good’ about a solution to a problem counts and damn the consequences. And if you disagree with them you…are…the…enemy and are called every name in the book that they themselves represent. And they have made that very, very clear.

So what do we owe them? NOTHING. Absolutely nothing. We must marginalize them and keep them at arm’s length and forever from the levers of power. Or as my father used to say, “Don’t argue with fools and drunkards”.

I’ll go one step further. The Progressive Left and their cohorts – the Muslim Fundamentalists – are not only mentally ill – just look around the absolute stupidity of their actions – but EVIL and we must keep our boot on their neck as we reconstruct what made this country great and become that “Shining City of the Hill” Ronald Reagan so accurately spoke about.

The Republic has been saved --- for now.

But Rust…Never…Sleeps

"Turn Your Islamic Centers and Mosques Into Polling Stations and Voter Registration Centers" ... and other BLM/Islamic Agitation

WashingtonTimes: Black Lives Matter cashes in with $100 million from liberal foundations
Tuesday, August 16, 2016

For all its talk of being a street uprising, Black Lives Matter is increasingly awash in cash, raking in pledges of more than $100 million from liberal foundations and others eager to contribute to what has become the grant-making cause du jour.
Perhaps instead of demanding a refund, Hillary's Middle Eastern supporters will encourage her to transfer $$ from the foundation into BLM coffers
particularly so, given:
At the 14th Annual MAS-ICNA Convention, CAIR representative Nihad Awad states:

"Turn your center, Islamic Centers, mosques into registration centers for voters, into polling stations during the election time."
"Black Lives Matter (BLM) is our campaign."

These documented images could prove handy to illuminate the jihad links to BLM should violence break out again, as a result of this election.

A museum for devil worship

The PLO's opened a museum dedicated to Yasir Arafat, one of the worst jihadists to lead their movement, in Ramallah. And it's predictably filled with anti-Israeli propaganda too:
“Museum Honors Arafat But Avoids Conclusions,” was the headline on the print version of a New York Times dispatch from Ramallah about a $7 million new museum devoted to the life of PLO chairman Yasser Arafat. Alas, the same cannot be said of the Times article itself, which is full of conclusions, many of them wrong.

The article reports:

He died, according to the exhibit, after Israel apparently managed to poison him — this “based on evidence from laboratories and other medical reports as well as official statements by Israeli officials,” the text reads, though Israel denied involvement.

How this totally unsubstantiated and false accusation constitutes “avoiding conclusions” is left unexplained by the New York Times. Maybe some editor there also found the headline contradicted by the story, because the online version of the headline was eventually revised to the more accurate: “Museum Explores Arafat’s Legacy but Leaves Unanswered Questions.”
It still doesn't excuse their routinely reprehensible approach. It's just like them to peddle that nasty falsehood while publishing an accepting view of a museum devoted to pushing an anti-Israeli, anti-semitic agenda, along with a monster who certainly did have blood on his hands, and not just from Jewish victims.

From Tammy Swofford:
Like the sound of thunder quarrelling with the storm that spawned it, like a lightning strike delivered by God himself, Donald J Trump accomplished a political feat that denies the well-ordered models of statistical probability their secure domain. No more! Never again! America will never be the same. 
Trump is like rolling thunder. And the thunderclaps being hurled across the political sky contain the voices of millions of ordinary Americans. Let me take you back to a moment in time from November of 2015 to set this stage. 
A quiet meeting took place between a close associate of mine and a member of the Karl Rove cabal. Seated at a Hilton hotel, the two individuals shared their thoughts over a long breakfast. It was a calm East Coast morning. But the messenger was tasked with the delivery of a strong warning: 
Beware of “the peasants beyond the moat.” 
The phrase is my coinage, and this imagery was used to deliver a jolt into the highest reaches of the GOP. Check the emotional pulse of the electorate. You are unaware of the level of anger and rising tide of resentment against the GOP and all Washington elites. 
The peasants beyond the moat are on the move, and the pitchforks and torches are in our hands. Do your jobs or we will replace you! November 8, 2016: we voted. 
And we voted with the middle finger. 
Three decades of taxation without stewards of righteous representation. Three decades of moral and economic decay residing within the elected suits who promised us the world and gave birth to foul wind. Three decades of creepy clowns like the Clinton crime syndicate and our creepy clowns within the GOP establishment. (Yes, we are aware of our own ba****ds.) 50 percent of Americans earn less than what was earned 17 years ago. 
Solid careers have dissipated, and Americans who are within a demographic for peak-earning potential find themselves shouldering two or three part time jobs to make ends meet. We work harder and earn less. And our children will suffer greater levels of hardship. This is the thought that remains unbearable. 
Our national borders are not quite as convulsed as what is noted in Europe. But the breakage in our national membrane on large scale will produce a death spiral with a rapidity of flash pulmonary edema. National membranes are as vitally important as human cell membranes. Both function along the lines of similar principles. Intractable problems and unsupportable levels of corruption have been bequeathed on us by leadership that only give a damn about themselves and the welfare of their progeny. 
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…” We always imagined it was the other guy. We never thought that Emma Lazarus’ poetry would be about We the People — the generationally-grounded citizens who have flourished within this great land for so long. 
But we figured it out by the middle of George W Bush’s second presidential term. And we have suffered from both the symbolism and the practical applications of Ms Lazarus’ words for at least a decade now. We voted. And we voted with the middle finger.

Watson juxtaposes video clips of Hillary campaigning against Donald Trump with the claim:
Hillary: "...he refuses to say that he would respect the results of this election." 
various images of organized rioting across the country.
Hillary: "Now, make no mistake, by doing that, he is threatening our democracy."

"I’m a Muslim, a woman and an immigrant. I voted for Trump"

She's Quite The Babe Too

I’m a Muslim, a woman and an immigrant. I voted for Trump

Asra Q. Nomani is a former Wall Street Journal reporter and a co-founder of the Muslim Reform Movement. She can be found on Twitter at @AsraNomani. 
A lot is being said now about the “silent secret Trump supporters.” This is my confession — and explanation: I — a 51-year-old, a Muslim, an immigrant woman “of color” — am one of those silent voters for Donald Trump. And I’m not a “bigot,” “racist,” “chauvinist” or “white supremacist,” as Trump voters are being called, nor part of some “whitelash.” 
In the winter of 2008, as a lifelong liberal and proud daughter of West Virginia, a state born on the correct side of history on slavery, I moved to historically conservative Virginia only because the state had helped elect Barack Obama as the first African American president of the United States. But, then, for much of this past year, I have kept my electoral preference secret: I was leaning toward Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. 
Tuesday evening, just minutes before the polls closed at Forestville Elementary School in mostly Democratic Fairfax County, I slipped between the cardboard partitions in the polling booth, a pen balanced carefully between my fingers, to mark my ballot for president, coloring in the circle beside the names of Trump and his running mate, Mike Pence. 
After Hillary Clinton called Trump to concede, making him America’s president-elect, a friend on Twitter wrote a message of apology to the world, saying there are millions of Americans who don’t share Trump’s “hatred/division/ignorance.” She ended: “Ashamed of millions that do.” 
That would presumably include me — but it doesn’t, and that is where the dismissal of voter concerns about Clinton led to her defeat. I most certainly reject the trifecta of “hatred/division/ignorance.” 
I support the Democratic Party’s position on abortion, same-sex marriage and climate change. But I am a single mother who can’t afford health insurance under Obamacare. The president’s mortgage-loan modification program, “HOPE NOW,” didn’t help me. Tuesday, I drove into Virginia from my hometown of Morgantown, W.Va., where I see rural America and ordinary Americans, like me, still struggling to make ends meet, after eight years of the Obama administration. 
Finally, as a liberal Muslim who has experienced, first-hand, Islamic extremism in this world, I have been opposed to the decision by President Obama and the Democratic Party to tap dance around the “Islam” in Islamic State. 
Of course, Trump’s rhetoric has been far more than indelicate and folks can have policy differences with his recommendations, but, to me, it has been exaggerated and demonized by the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, their media channels, such as Al Jazeera, and their proxies in the West, in a convenient distraction from the issue that most worries me as a human being on this earth: extremist Islam of the kind that has spilled blood from the hallways of the Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai to the dance floor of the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla. 
In mid-June, after the tragic shooting at Pulse, Trump tweeted out a message, delivered in his typical subtle style: “Is President Obama going to finally mention the words radical Islamic terrorism? If he doesn’t he should immediately resign in disgrace!” 
Around then, on CNN’s “New Day,” Democratic candidate Clinton seemed to do the Obama dance, saying, “From my perspective, it matters what we do more than what we say. And it mattered we got bin Laden, not what name we called him. I have clearly said we — whether you call it radical jihadism or radical Islamism, I’m happy to say either. I think they mean the same thing.” 
By mid-October, it was one Aug. 17, 2014, email from the WikiLeaks treasure trove of Clinton emails that poisoned the well for me. In it, Clinton told aide John Podesta: “We need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL,” the politically correct name for the Islamic State, “and other radical Sunni groups in the region.” 
The revelations of multimillion-dollar donations to the Clinton Foundation from Qatar and Saudi Arabia killed my support for Clinton. 
Yes, I want equal pay. No, I reject Trump’s “locker room” banter, the idea of a “wall” between the United States and Mexico and a plan to “ban” Muslims. But I trust the United States and don’t buy the political hyperbole — agenda-driven identity politics of its own — that demonized Trump and his supporters. 
I gently tried to express my thoughts on Twitter but the “Pantsuit revolution” was like a steamroller to any nuanced discourse. If you supported Trump, you had to be a redneck. 
Days before the election, a journalist from India emailed me, asking: What are your thoughts being a Muslim in “Trump’s America”? I wrote that as a child of India, arriving in the United States at the age of 4 in the summer of 1969, I have absolutely no fears about being a Muslim in a “Trump America.” The checks and balances in America and our rich history of social justice and civil rights will never allow the fear-mongering that has been attached to candidate Trump’s rhetoric to come to fruition. 
What worried me the most were my concerns about the influence of theocratic Muslim dictatorships, including Qatar and Saudi Arabia, in a Hillary Clinton America. These dictatorships are no shining examples of progressive society with their failure to offer fundamental human rights and pathways to citizenship to immigrants from India, refugees from Syria and the entire class of de facto slaves that live in those dictatorships. 
We have to stand up with moral courage against not just hate against Muslims, but hate by Muslims, so that everyone can live with sukhun, or peace of mind, I finished in my reflections to the journalist in India. 
He didn’t get the email. I didn’t resend it, afraid of the wrath I’d receive. But, then, I voted.

Trump Presidency: Policy Suggestions for the First 100 Days

A friend of OURS has some thoughts:
If I could advise Trump, I would say on the day of the inauguration, about an hour after the inauguration he should fly down to Texas where there will be a site ready for construction of the wall, and there would be a groundbreaking. Ivanka would feature prominently, wearing a short skirt, high heels, and a hard hat. Cranes would be in place, and construction would get under way on the great wall. 
After that, he would fly back to D.C. for inauguration festivities in the evening. 
I would leave Obamacare alone for a few months, with the exception that by executive order I would waive all tax penalties from the mandate for the upcoming tax season. Next year he can turn to Obamacare, but first he should act fast on his most politically popular issue, which is immigration. 
The wall should go up by any means necessary. 
Trump should take donations from the public to fund it if neccesary, and accept volunteer labor from Americans. A tab would be run, and Mexico would get the bill later. Americans will build it. I bet every Trump voter would give $100 for building the wall, which is 6 billion right there. It will take 4 times that, but it can easily be done with no appropriation. 
Eminent domain should be used aggressively where needed, but really the military should just be deployed at the building sites, and it should be built 100 feet onto Mexico's side so there is no issue with private land ownership. 
He should also go into cities and start a bunch of federal building projects. That would get enough democrats on board to have early and popular victories. 
He should pick the absolute best, most Scalia-like justice available, and immediately get that person confirmed. There is broad GOP agreement on what makes a good SCOTUS justice, so that would get him early points with the GOP congress. 
He should publicly encourage Obama to pardon Hillary, but if Obama does not pardon her he should announce that he is neither going to direct criminal charges nor stand in the way of any such, because he wants to move on, and wants the FBI and DOJ to become no longer tainted by politics. Same with the IRS, no more persecution of political enemies. 
I would also bring in Mike Tyson to be kind of a sidekick/personal assistant. Tyson was not used at all in the campaign but he won anyway. Now it's time to solidify power. 
Tyson might also make an excellent spokesperson for Trump at strategically important times. Cuz, who could argue with Iron Mike?

Al-Qaeda: Trump Win Shows Americans Are “Racist Towards Muslims”

From the Washington Post:
Shortly after Trump was declared the victor, a number of prominent Salafist ideologues linked to jihadist outfits in the Middle East took to social media to cheer the prospect of a Trump presidency. The remarks signaled the militants’ apparent belief that the victory of a candidate like Trump, who has suggested potentially unconstitutional blocks on Muslim immigration and advocated torture, undermines the United States’ moral standing in the world. [Trump’s obsession with the phrase ‘radical Islam’ won’t defeat terrorism] 
Social-media sites associated with both the Islamic State and al-Qaeda also hailed Trump’s success as the beginning of “dark times” for the United States, marked by domestic unrest and new foreign military campaigns that would sap the strength of the American superpower. 
“Rejoice with support from Allah, and find glad tidings in the imminent demise of America at the hands of Trump,” said the Islamic State-affiliated al-Minbar Jihadi Media network, one of several jihadi forums to post commentaries on the results of the U.S. election. 
A pro-al-Qaeda al-Maqalaat Twitter account predicted that Trump would “make the U.S. Enemy No. 1 again” in the Muslim Middle East. “Trump will serve as the perfect straw man for the next four years, like Bush did before him,” it said. 
Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi, a jihadist ideologue linked to al-Qaeda who has close to 60,000 followers on Twitter, gloated about Trump’s victory, suggesting that it “may be the beginning of America’s fragmentation and the era of its breakup.” 
In a second tweet, he said that Trump “reveals the true mentality of the Americans, and their racism toward Muslims and Arabs and everything. He reveals what his predecessors used to conceal. So his victory further exposes America and its appendages.”

While the Dow rose 103.75 points, or 0.6 percent, to 18,7693.44 at 10:35 a.m. in New York, the Nasdaq 100 Index plunged 2 percent. Banks and health-care shares rose a second day to take the 30-stock gauge it above its Aug. 15 record. 
I think this is what we can expect to see for the next year or so, as the Trump agenda becomes clear. The Dow will go up and the NASDAQ will have trouble.

The reason I think the NASDAQ will be troubled is because many Green Companies are one the NASDAQ, and as they have benefited greatly from Government largesse (at taxpayer expense), investors will see trouble.

Many Green Energy companies revenue streams are based almost entirely upon Government money, as no one would buy their products at all if they were not partially paid for by the government.

I Think I'm Gonna Like This Feller

From Breitbart:
No world leader has ever been this outspoken on climate change. 
The only other one to have come close to this position was former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott – but he just didn’t have the support base to maintain it and was ousted in a coup staged by one of the climate alarmist establishment, Malcolm Turnbull. 
But with a climate skeptic running the most powerful nation in the world, the $1.5 trillion per annum climate change industry is going to start to unravel big time. 
A Trump presidency is likely to be good news for fossil fuels (and heavy industry that needs cheap energy to survive); and very bad news for renewables. 
To get an idea of the horrors to come for the greenies, look at how they reacted to the prospect of his new Environmental Protection Agency Dismantler-in-Chief Myron Ebell. Ebell is an old friend of mine who works on climate and energy issues at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. The fact that he’s an old friend of mine probably tells you all you need to know about where he stands on global warming. 
Here’s how Newsweek views him: 
“Ebell is sometimes described as climate denier-in-chief, and he revels in it, crowing in his biography that he’s been called one of the leading “misleaders” on climate change and “villain of the month” by one environmental group. David Goldston, a policy analyst at the Natural Resources Defense Council Action Fund, says Ebell “doesn’t believe in climate change and wants to reverse the advances we’ve had in environmental protection and decimate—if not utterly destroy—the Environmental Protection Agency.” 
The Competitive Enterprise Institute, Ebell’s employer, “has done everything it can politically and through litigation to block any forward movement on climate and to try to harass anybody who is trying to get forward movement,” Goldston says. 
Ebell is also the chairman of the Cooler Heads Coalition, more than two dozen nonprofit groups “that question global warming alarmism and oppose energy rationing policies,” according to the coalition’s website. Those positions line up nicely with Trump’s goals, which include “saving” the coal industry, reviving the Keystone XL oil pipeline and expanding offshore oil drilling.”

Anti-Trump Protests

From The Last English Prince:
Let them march, let them pass. 
While aggregates in the thousands protest against democratic rule, the vast majority of us continue our lives. 
U.S. Census 
According to the population clock on the upper left, U.S. population is a healthy 324 million souls. The “bump” about every second is undoubtedly related to live births – the newly minted Americans announcing their arrival in healthcare facilities across the U.S. 
The world population clock is at a trot. Babies are being born under bushes, in refugee camps and delivered by midwives. 
But in this land, a place called Blessed, democracy has brought us many benefits. One such benefit is a history of a peaceful transition of power. 
This tradition can be assailed but not overthrown. 
So to all who rage, rage against the dying of their political light I have just one remark. Can the rest of us just enjoy breakfast and head to work? That is what I did after Mr. Obama ascended to the presidency twice. Voted against him. Did not protest in public after his election. 
I am an American.

From Power Line:

The Great Liberal Freakout is under way, as we’ve noted below. Here’s my haul.

The head of the Joint Center for Political Studies, which the Washington Post describes as a “respected liberal think tank,” reacted to Trump’s landslide thus: “When you consider that in the climate we’re in—rising violence, the Ku Klux Klan—it is exceedingly frightening.” Castro, still with us, said right before the election: “We sometimes have the feeling that we are living in the time preceding the election of Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany.”

Claremont College professor John Roth wrote: “I could not help remembering how economic turmoil had conspired with Nazi nationalism and militarism—all intensified by Germany’s defeat in World War I—to send the world reeling into catastrophe… It is not entirely mistaken to contemplate our post-election state with fear and trembling.”

Esquire writer Harry Stein says that the voters who supported Trump were like the “good Germans” in “Hitler’s Germany.” Sociologist Alan Wolfe is up in the New Left Review: “The worst nightmares of the American left appear to have come true.” And he doubles down in The Nation: “[T]he United States has embarked on a course so deeply reactionary, so negative and mean-spirited, so chauvinistic and self-deceptive that our times may soon rival the McCarthy era.”

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, keeper of the “Doomsday Clock” that purported to judge the risk of nuclear annihilation, has moved the hands on the clock from seven to four minutes before midnight.

Oh wait, did I say this was the reaction to Trump?? 

Sorry—these are what the left was saying the day after Ronald Reagan’s election in 1980. 

Some things never change.

Donald Trump Kills Three Dynasties With One Stone

The stone he cast was simply this:

We will protect our borders; real, economic, and ideological.

With that one stone, he took out the three biggest political dynastiesof our lifetimes.

He DESTROYED Jeb Bush in the primary! Jeb, who is, thankfully, the last of the Bush's political clan, has no political future any longer.

Then he DESTROYED the Clinton's political machine & "Charity Foundation by beating Hillary and ruining her life's dream of being POTUS.

Finally Overlord Obama's legacy is going to be DESTROYED, dismantled a piece at a time, when President Trump rescinds all of Overlord Obama's executive orders, repeals Obamacare, renegotiates TPP, detonates the Iran Treaty, and realigns our commitments in NATO and throughout the rest of the world.

Trump Wins! Stock Martket Up!

I don't really expect good or bad results at this point. I think once Trump begins to govern, there will be trouble as the rats find they have to scurry, which, in many cases, will mean moving their money around in drastic ways.

I Can Not Think of Two Better People To Get Those Congrats From

Netanyahu congratulates 'true friend' of Israel...

Egypt's Sisi is first international call... 

Sisi is the potential Islamic reformer, and Israel simply has done nothing to deserve the hatred they have received. 

This says a lot!

Those who think - for a moment - this is a WHITE victory of race, hate and misogyny

That is the message of past thinking

This election, which is VERY reminiscent of 1980 in some ways, is the victory of the reason of the people who have seen challenging careers replaced by part time, or drudgery jobs beginning as early as 1979 (when US Steel began to complain about Japanese steel being 'dumped' here by Japanese companies supported by their govt in THEIR program to increase THEIR exports).

This is a victory of those being hugged and 'shushed' as leaders of both parties exclaimed their own professional expertise until the people realized what as really going on ... that CORPORATE REPUBLICANS AND WALL STREET DEMOCRATS are one and the same.

If Trump is really wise, he will recognize those in both parties, who have recognized this FACT, and there will be an earthquake, and he will get things done.

Ryan-McConnell-Pelosi-Hoyer MUST GO. But although that's not up to him, he can influence this.

Schumer and Trump are buddies from the old neighborhood, so who knows?

But it's not Ryan conservatism, (best case on that interpretation) for example, which is the enemy, it is his INSISTENCE in the face of objective evidence that FREE TRADE is the way to go which means he has to go (never mind WHO has really benefited here). It is his UNFEELING insistence on these values as a 'professional' relying his 'expertise' while being proven factually incorrect to the PEOPLE who work and live here, which means he has to go.

There are many in congress who will be rethinking things in a Darwinian fashion. Trump should identify these men and women.

REGARDLESS of the granfalloon of R or D, those people ARE his party.

There are many who will never adapt. They are old triceratops(es) and can inflict damage but no longer can leave any further legacy but DAMAGE. They just don't realize it yet. They will insist to their graves that we don't know what we are doing, NEVER understanding for a second that in that cry they are demeaning the ENTIRE REASON FOR THE USA...

That people hold complete sovereignty here in the USA, while they make up their own rules right out their own heads.

This morning the Ambassador of France to the USA said:
"After Brexit and this election, everything is now possible. A world is collapsing before our eyes. Dizziness."

It was in 1776, and it is now.

The USA remains a revolutionary nation because the PEOPLE govern.

The 'elite' can show their erudite and mild contempt by naming this 'populism' but this only occurs when the leaders are no longer part of the people.

Justice HAS been delivered.

Now Trump must figure out how to do the same.

"Fiat justitia ruat cælum"
