Even in the upcoming Trump error, sorry…era…truth will matter. It is important for supporters and opponents to understand this. He lost the popular vote. He won the Electoral College fair and square, but it is just as important to know he lost the popular vote just as fairly. He won an election not a mandate. He deserves a chance to lead, to put forth an agenda, to set forth his ideas. But he doesn’t deserve false claims as to the extent of his win or an abandonment by the opposition of their objections.
THE FINAL tally is in, and it’s a clean sweep.
Electoral College: Trump 306 : Crooked Hillary 232
Popular Vote: Trump 62,972,226 : Crooked Hillary 62,277,750
Eagle-eyed readers will note that President-elect Trump won the popular vote by 699,993. I believe that someone in these here parts said he’d win it, even when all the lyin’ media said otherwise. And these are the official numbers. Crooked’s vote was inflated hugely by illegal votes, by no ID states, by crooked California handing out driving licences to illegals, by Obama telling illegals to go vote, etc. As well as that wall, President-elect Trump must clean out the swamp of Democratic electoral corruption.
So stick that in your petitions and put that on your placards.
FOR instance, last week’s election has given us this great new desktop wallpaper –
No really, the 45th President and Sir Nigel Farage will now greet me from a stylish, yet tastefully understated, Trump Tower lift/elevator whenever I turn the laptop on. It looks so great.
This is the large version, because you want it too.
You’re most welcome.
The election of Donald Trump has thrown the political world into a frenzy. Shock and Dismay seem to be the words that best describe what they are feeling.
They have only themselves to blame. A huge amount of Trumps votes came from people who have just had enough. I believe over half of his votes were from people like me. I don’t particularly care for President Trump. There are many aspects of his personality and Life that I disagree with.
However the past ten years have decimated much of American Life. Both parties carry blame. I believe most people in my country that voted for him were voting against the system. Against the bull that has been shoved down our throats for decades, but the last ten years were the straw that broke the camels back.
I don’t know if Trump will be able to fix anything. Hopefully if nothing else gets accomplished the Southern border will get sealed. In the mean time as the man with green hair said “introduce a little chaos into the situation” and I believe that he will do.
These however are the feelings I believe are running through the core of America right now. You know the song, but have you ever read the words. I believe this is the message that was sent to both sides.
Please play the song and read the words.
BELIEVE it or not, things are going on elsewhere. Great Orban is in London, trying to woo Chairman May. Don’t worry Vik, we’re tight. It seems that Marine Le Pen is chumming up to the Trump camp. I like that. The media continues to die. I see The Telegraph, once a great paper but now unreadable, has put up a paywall and has just handed one of the best sports reporters in the country his cards, “to make savings”. So stupid, so blind, but The Telegraph, like all the old media, is irrelevant and headed for the glue factory.
Have yourselves an Open Thread then. Anything you like. Just fire away. This one comes with a free laugh. What, you don’t think we’ll ever stop enjoying it, do you?
ISN’T this new map of America beautiful? It shows the election at county level. It’s like a work of art. We could call it “Blue-Rimmed Basket of Deplorables”. The detail is very interesting.
The isolated blue spots are deep, deep blue cities of course, or “crime hot spots”. This is where we find the sanctuary cities and parasite cities which so skewed the final result away from a landslide. However, with a few million votes left to count, and Crooked Hillary 400,000 ahead, Trump might well bag the popular vote too, irrelevant though it is.
We can see that Republicans in Massachusetts and Democrats in Oklahoma are about the loneliest people in the country. We’re told that New York is Democrat. New York City is Democrat, and heavily so, but New York State is red. Likewise, California is red in places. Republicans will take it when the San Andreas Fault slides the blue counties into the Pacific.
There’s a blue crescent through the South, which must be black counties. That’s not racist of course. I presume the blue splodges in the south west, Texas and Florida are Hispanic.
The overall impression I get is that Trump won the popular vote. These Dem outposts really are deep blue. NY, CA, MA and DC (by 10 to 1) are where the Dems loaded up, but strip away the illegal votes and Trump won. I suspect we might find that out in a few month’s time.
This is disgusting and I know all on ATW will share this view.
“Overnight protests against the election of Donald Trump as US president turned violent in Portland, Oregon. About 4,000 demonstrators gathered in the centre of the western city. Some smashed shop and car windows, threw firecrackers and set rubbish alight. Police declared a riot and made 26 arrests. Oregon voted in favour of Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s election.’
Oregon may indeed have voted in favour of Clinton, as the BBC drearily reminds us, but this was not an Oregon election, it was a United States election and Trump has won the majority of States and has an overwhelming majority in the Electoral College. So Oregon needs to show a little more respect. Of course I also acknowledge that many Democrat voters in Oregon will watch this violence in horror. These are the foot soldiers of Soros on parade and they are protesting AGAINST democracy.
Four words from John McCrae’s In Flanders Field that have always stood out to me as representing the poignancy of a soldier’s death in that it reminds us that they loved and were loved. McCrae, a Canadian military surgeon and poet, wrote the poem a hundred years ago. He himself would not survive the war, dying in a military hospital of pneumonia. To all the Veterans on this day I think some quiet thought or prayer is due for the lives they lived and those that lost.
