I'm just gonna write about Trump and election related things.
When I was in college (I don't bring it up often, because it's really not relevant, IMO), there was no shortage of "intellectuals" who went out of their way to sound smart. You know the type, they use big words when common ones will do. They take on an air of superiority, and if you're not really listening carefully to the content, you can be fooled into thinking these twits actually have something to say. A lot of professors were like that, too. Anyyyywaayyyy, I am SO thrilled that after the 20th of January, 2017, I won't have to listen to that phony, smartass Obama, pretending he's the smartest guy in the room whenever he opens his pie hole. In his last press conference (THANK YOU GOD!) he moaned and groaned about people who listened to talk radio, and how after a period of time they started believing that "stuff." Stuff? He used the word twice. And he wrote BOOKS? I seriously doubt it. But no matter. In Obama's Twilight Zone, anyone who doesn't follow "mainstream" media, is just an uneducated, uncultured bonehead. If only people weren't such idiots, he could work wonders. Whatever. It's kind of fun to watch him get all ticked off at Trump, who will for sure undo most of the idiocy of the Obama regime. And that's all I have to say about this pretentious, arrogant, anti-American and anti-capitalism MO-RON!
This entire election has been weird. The experts once again, got everything wrong. Many months ago, Ann Coulter was on Bill Maher's HBO show. Maher asked her who she thought would be the Republican nominee. She replied, Donald Trump. The "panel" on stage, and the entire audience of far left goons, laughed their collective butts off. Maher gave his famous smirk that said Ann, you're my friend, but you're out of your mind! Over the last few days I found scores of pundits on Youtube who literally LAUGHED OUT LOUD at the idea that Trump could get the nomination, let alone win the election. Every one was ohhhhh so superior. And you know what else? Every one was totally removed from regular Americans. I don't even like to use the term "regular Americans" because it implies mediocrity. Hardly. Regular Americans have jobs. They work hard. They hang around with OTHER regular Americans. The Joy Behars, Whoopi Goldbergs, Rachel Maddows and pretty much all of the geniuses at CNN and MSNBC, just to name a few networks, don't know any normal people. But those of us who aren't part of the media inner circle, were not nearly as surprised as the "experts" when Trump walked off a winner. Don't misunderstand. There were plenty of skeptics, but not nearly as many percentage-wise, as in the MSM. I was pretty nervous on election eve, but I did write that Trump's supporters would be more likely to turn out to vote. I was on edge, but cautiously optimistic. Truth is, I've known plenty of people over the years, who are just as knowledgeable as the pundits on TV. The main difference is that they have jobs that require producing, rather than giving opinions. Again, whatever.
I am so excited about a Trump presidency. I'm not concerned with his personal faults. From what I can see, he is a mix of saint and sinner. All I care about is if he at least TRIES to do what he says he'll do. If idiot Republicans decide to stand in his way, well, whaddya gonna do? I look forward to cutting stupid regulations that stifle growth. Lower taxes will stimulate the economy. Rebuilding the military is an absolute necessity. Protecting our borders and keeping Muslims OUT, because they're an awful fit, culturally, and there is a serious risk of terrorists sneaking in is a big deal. Sorry, but it's true. Political correctness can kill.
The Trump bashers on the left disgust me. Hey, I'm aware of his personal shortcomings, as I'm aware of mine. But you know what? He never hung around with domestic terrorists, or had a "spiritual adviser" who damned America. He never sought out communist professors in college, marched next to the New Black Panthers, or said that the Cambridge (was it Cambridge?) police acted "stupidly." He never lectured America on the terrible beheading of American James Foley, and then took off to the golf course. He never bowed to a foreign leader. As far as idiots like Obama and HRC are concerned, well they can criticize him for not dissing Putin, but Trump never did the "wave" with a Cuban dictator, or had his picture taken in front of a giant drawing of Che Guevera. And Hillary never criticized him for doing these things. It was Obama who chummed up to an Iranian dictator, and again, Hillary didn't mind. I don't think Obama or Clinton are in any position to slam on anyone.
And NOW we're told that Clinton lost because of Russian hackers. I find this highly unlikely, but for the sake of argument, let's say the Russkies DID everything the frustrated libs said they did. Ohhhhhh, they interfered with our ELECTION! Seriously? You mean like how Obama interfered with Israel's election? I guess that's different. It's not, especially since Israel (in theory, anyway) is our friend. In any case, the idea that Russia is responsible for Trump's win, is about as assinine a theory as I've ever heard. Think about it. Hillary outspent Trump 2-1. She had almost every network: ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC on her side, not to mention every pop singer with a strong voice and a weak mind, shilling for her. Late night comics did snotty monologues against The Donald and paraded a constant stream of guests trashing Trump. Time and Newsweek, and pretty much every national rag, and most newspapers, also slimed Trump. So-called respected Republicans sneered at DT, and The National Review garnered plenty of conservatives to stand against him. Now let's just say the Russians WERE involved in this election. I seriously doubt it, but just for the sake of argument, let's assume it's true. With all of the weapons against Trump, really, how much damage could be done by Putin? Putin didn't make Hillary screw up her email responsibilities? And he didn't tell her not to campaign much in states that the "experts" said Trump was wasting his time in, like Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Putin never told her to call half of Donald Trump's supporters a "basket of deplorables." And no one in Russia filled huge arenas for Trump, while Hillary couldn't overcrowd a gym. Considering all of the pluses HRC had going for her, you'd think she could handle the Russians. Personally, I don't know anyone who decided against her because Russia (supposedly) got involved. In the end, it was pretty simple. She was a weak candidate who inspired almost no one. She had virtually NO platform. "I'm with her" might be a decent slogan if she had a case as to WHY people should be with her. Her "message" was the same boring liberal garbage about taxing the rich, and more and more liberal programs that don't work. She trotted out her husband, Obama, and God knows how many entertainers, and it all fell flatter than anything the International House of Pancakes ever came up with.
Look, Hillary, you didn't lose because of "fake news." Fake news didn't stop Obama. And you didn't lose because of FBI director, James Comey. If you didn't like what he was doing, maybe you should've paid attention to the rules, and not screwed with the system. I know you're a Clinton, and you don't think the rules apply to you, but the rest of us didn't get that memo. You weren't done in by the Russians, the FBI, "fake news" or anything else. You were doomed from the beginning, because you're a run-of-the-mill liberal who thinks government can solve all problems. You didn't reach out to anyone. You were just "too cool for school." Everyone who was anyone was on your side, except for people who worked regular jobs, and could see through your BS. While you were pandering to gays, unions, minorities and teachers' unions, Trump was speaking to AMERICA. He cut into your advantage with blacks, and even Hispanics. While you were stupidly talking about costing coal jobs, Trump was sticking up for the working folks. Trump went into Flint. You never did. Your whole campaign spoke of entitlement. Ohhhhh, it's Hillary's turn. I expect Jeb Bush felt the same way. But once again, these politicians have a disconnect, and it's ironic that it took a BILLIONAIRE for ordinary citizens to relate to.
And I'll kinda wind this rant up with a few things. Hillary Clinton is an empty pantsuit. She didn't increase security in Benghazi, or ask for help during the attack. After the butchery was done, she lied about the cause of the attack. Russia had nothing to do with that. Her Clinton Foundation -- and let's ignore for the moment, accusations of wrongdoing (to say the least) -- and focus on the fact that this "charity" gave only ten percent to charitable causes. That's obscene. She said that women should be believed in cases or sexual assault, but slimed those who accused her pig of a husband of everything from sexual harassment to rape. She backed Obama on every issue. No foreign government made her do these things. When all is said and done, in this case, there's no amount of money, media and entertainment support, that could put Hillary Dumpty Clinton back together again. I would be hard pressed to think of anything she has ever done, that would make anyone vote for her, unless they were just a die-hard liberal. Just sayin'.
So now we have (gasp!) a president-elect that Democrats hate! And they're going nuts! Hollywood B-list actors are begging electors to switch their votes. Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg are hyperventilating and predicting the end of the world. Michelle Obama, in a gesture of good sportmanship, is telling Oprah that America has lost all hope. Funny, for the first time in eight years, I actually HAVE hope, and so do millions of other Americans.
On January 20th, 2017, Trump will be sworn in, and Obama will leave the White House. I'm excited about both. I'll tell you right now, he's not my ideal president. I'll NEVER find one. But he's close enough. He's head and shoulders above McCain and Romney, and I voted for both. But I'm confident that overall, America will do MUCH better than an Obama or Bush administration. I'm telling you right now that the Trump bashers are a bunch of a-holes. I don't mean those that disagree with his policies. That's not a problem. I'm talking about the morons who say he's a bigot, homophobe, sexist, and has cooties, crowd. Next year at this time, there's no doubt in my mind that America will be MUCH better off, economically, and we'll actually HAVE a foreign policy. Trump will work tirelessly. There won't be these vacations every other month. He will give it his best. And he won't cuddle up to any special interest. Whatever mistakes he makes, will not be because he's not trying. And with that, I guess I'm done.
