We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
This is the only political piece I put on my site during the election. The reason I'm porting it over here is twofold:
- While pretty much every pundit in the Central Galaxy figured Trump didn't have a snowball's chance in hell, there actually was one small group who thought otherwise. I was lucky enough to be a part of it.
- For Trump supporters, the first video below is outstanding. It's masterfully done and deserves to be shared.
The reason I'm putting this in the Political Humor section is because, quite simply, Trump made a joke out of every talking head on the planet. Every pundit, every pollster, every 'expert', every left-wing writer, almost every right-wing writer, every commenter on every left-wing site, every newscaster, every op-ed writer, every opinion-maker, every every.
Well, almost every every.
There actually was one small, hard-core group who had a pretty good idea of what was going down:
Fans of Ann Coulter.
Myself, I blushingly admit I've followed her every word for over a decade. I even have a few articles on this site where she's highlighted. That's her in the preview pic below, over on the right. Watch her expression when she makes her prediction and the liberal audience breaks out in amused and derisive laughter.
She just smiles knowingly.
She maintained for a year that as long as Trump stayed true to himself and stayed on message, he could very well pull it off. Like Ann, I never bought that the average American would turn from Trump to Clinton over some ancient misdeed on Trump's part that the media blew all out of proportion. Like Ann, I figured Americans had become a lot more politically savvy in the past decade and saw through the spin the liberal media was producing. Or, perhaps more to the point, they simply ignored it.
So, without further ado, allow me to present what I'm casually labeling The Video Of The Year.
As for the many, many (many) reasons Mrs. Clinton lost, well, the list is almost endless. First, it was racism, because all white Americans are secretly white supremacists and were just getting back at Obama by way of Trump. Then it turned out all American males are secretly devout misogynists and just couldn't stand the thought of a female president.
Then it was Clinton aide Huma Abedin's fault. Then it was FBI director James Comey's fault. Then Russian President Vladimir Putin's fault. Then-
Did I mention the list is almost endless?
But now everyone agrees that it was 'fake news' that did her in. One or two "Hillary Clinton Found Running Secret Child Pornography Ring In Basement" story and that was enough to sway America.
The latest piece on Trump Jr is a rather flimsy attempt to connect him to the RUSSIANS again. It was a RUSSIAN lawyer refused entry into the US and then appealing to the Obama administration for admission and gaining admission. That gives a good reason for Comey intelligence to follow the RUSSIAN. Then she (RUSSIAN lawyer) EMAILS Trump jr for a meeting on Hillary information. This EMAIL now used by Susan Rice to unmask Trump jr....who in their right mind would send an easily intercepted email. Trumps jr smells a rat and brings witnesses. Meeting produces nothing but some stuttering over ending of adoptions of RUSSIAN children to Americans and Trump jr again smells rat and ends meeting. Now we have 17 or maybe thousands of US intelligence agencies "spooked" over Trump campaign ties to RUSSIANS. Obama holdovers shout RUSSIANS, RUSSIANS, RUSSIANS for the media deadbeats. Trump finally corners Comey and fires his lying, leaking ass. Don't be surprised is RUSSIAN lawyer was discussed at Putin-Trump meeting and that she may also be trying to stick a shiv in Putin. Trump is at least three steps ahead of the DNC mafia.
The Left simply refuses to acknowledge that Trump demolished their weak, corrupt candidate. The latest attempt is particularly pathetic given the fact we know that the Hlllary campaign was working with the Ukrainian government to find dirt on Trump.
The fact is polls show Americans are getting increasingly disgusted about this whole RUSSIAN nonsense. I don't think Democrats yet realize the increasing price they are going to pay as a result.
