2016 Presidential Election: The Aftermath

screenshot-9Many mixed feelings on my part about everything going on here. The Democrats so richly deserved this loss and humiliation, and I am pleasantly surprised by just how badly they got their asses handed to them. It is a major relief that they are going to be completely out of power for at least the next two years. We are seeing the true colors of many of their rank-and-file, and it is so ugly and hateful. Some time in the wilderness is long overdue for a party that is horribly elitist, out-of-touch, and even a bit tyrannical. And there are other reasons for optimism. The Supreme Court possibilities are intriguing – Senator Ted Cruz, who I ultimately remain loyal to above all others in the political sphere, has been mentioned as a potential Justice. Hopefully, the rhetoric on free trade and immigration wasn’t just rhetoric, and something will be done to reassert our sovereignty and regain control of our borders. I am extremely comfortable with Gov. Pence and most grateful he is the one that will be ‘just a heartbeat away.’ Can one imagine if this were Chris Christie as incoming-VP, as was apparently considered during the campaign? Boy, did we ever dodge a bullet there! If it is Gov. Pence who emerges as the main power broker in this administration (and I believe that is probably the idea as far as the GOP establishment is concerned), I will be put very much at ease.

Mr. Trump has a chance to prove himself. This does not mean I will refrain from criticizing him when I feel necessary, or that I’m ever going to kiss his ass. No, I don’t particularly care for his personality or manner. I remain very skeptical about his intentions, and there has been reason for skepticism and concern just in the last few days since his election. Some of his actions and words have been, well, ‘deplorable.’ I can’t honestly say I trust him. Still, there is potential for positive things to happen here. There is also potential for disaster. So, I don’t know: I have a lot of FB friends who are pro-Trump, and others who are against him – prior to this election we were all pretty well united, and I regret that this man has become so divisive in our conservative community. Forget about the ‘alt-right’ crazies who are not conservatives at all, but have infiltrated the community. They really are Fascist scum and I’ve deleted scores upon scores of them. Trump needs to strongly disassociate himself from that crowd now that he’s got their votes and they’ve outlived their usefulness. Real conservatives – pro-Trump or against – are good people that I always wish to be associated with. Whether we can be united again remains to be seen, and I think ultimately depends upon how Trump conducts himself as president. I really have no desire to just wantonly hate on the man for the sake of hating him, but I do remain a severe skeptic. Unapologetically so. My personal feelings aside, may God grant Donald Trump the guidance and wisdom needed to successfully perform his duties and truly ‘make America great again’ …

Chris Christie: Trump call to prosecute Hillary Clinton just politics – His supporters sure seemed to take his vow to ‘lock her up’ seriously. How does it feel to be so ruthlessly conned? And not even 48 hours after Election Day. This is going to be a running theme from here on out, Trump constantly backtracking on his promises and his surrogates and supporters making every excuse under the sun for it …

VP-elect Pence takes over Trump transition team from Chris Christie – One thing Trump has done right this week. Hopefully, this giant turd Christie will not be part of the Cabinet …

Trump senior adviser says Iran deal will be ‘renegotiated,’ not ripped up as promised on the campaign trail – And another major campaign promise that is just brazenly being disregarded in the election’s wake. Yes, this is far more important than anything involving Hillary Clinton. Here we will apparently have yet another president seeking to impose the ‘two-state solution’ upon Israel, forcing her to carve up her borders and cede land to hostile parties. Here we’re apparently going to have another president playing footsie with America’s mortal enemy, Iran. We’ll see what this ‘renegotiation’ is about, but it doesn’t look good for Israel. I’ve long suspected this man Trump is no friend of Israel and the Jewish people – his failure to distance himself from the Jew-hating conspiracy theory crowd was telling – and we need to watch him closely as it concerns relations with the Jewish state. Anything less than full, unconditional fidelity to the special relationship between our two countries is completely and utterly unacceptable. So, is this man deliberately talking out of both sides of his mouth, or does he genuinely have no idea what the hell he is doing? I really wonder sometimes, and I just pray hundreds of thousands of Jews don’t have to die before he figures out where he really stands …

Russian foreign minister says his government was in contact with Trump’s team during campaign

Trump tells supporters committing violence to ‘stop it’ – IF this applies to you – one who voted for Trump and is out there throwing your weight around against those you deem ‘undesirables’ – listen to the man you’ve placed your trust in. We have no place for this in America, no matter who is president …

On the other hand, he names alt-right maven Stephen Bannon as new White House chief strategist – Not okay with this …

Anti-Trump protesters viciously attack man’s dog in NYC – An appalling lack of humanity, the single worse thing I’ve heard during this horrible week. Rot in Hell, you savage thugs! I defy any liberal reading this – I know my #NeverTrump people would never condone this behavior – to justify why an innocent creature nearly had to die because these people are angry over Donald Trump being elected president? Go ahead, I’m waiting …

Robert Strauss: Nothing but disdain for anti-Trump protesters

Michael Brendan Dougherty: This election is God’s judgment on us

John Kass: Without the Electoral College, we’d live in a real-life ‘Hunger Games’

Marybeth Glenn: Yes, it’s that bad. No, it’s not our fault

Noah Weinrich: Why Millennials shouldn’t heed the alt-right’s siren song – Leave the overwhelming obsession with race to those on the left, please …

Susan Wright: Trump advocates treat NeverTrumpers as conquered foes – Sore winners. You won in spite of us – and mostly because Democrats didn’t show up in enough numbers – so get over it now. We’re not rolling over and playing dead …

Michigan middle school students bully their peers, chant ‘build the wall’ in lunch room – Another good argument for bringing back corporal punishment in the schools. These are children, they do not understand the issues. And they’re not learning this behavior on their own. Too many adults lacking respect for fellow human beings filters down to the kids. We have a severe lack of real role models in our society today, and we’re going to suffer greatly for it …
