Election 2016: Accepting Defeat and Moving Forward

In fifty-four more days, Donald J. Trump will take the oath of office for President of the United States.  Although in Southern California, I am considering attending the historical event to witness the best thing that has happened to our country in decades. 

I have no concerns regarding the ludicrous request for a recount. According to all media reports, including mainstream, there has been no indication or evidence of tampering.   I cannot fathom what Jill Stein hopes to accomplish by the recount.  She wasn’t even a contender.  As far as Hillary goes, she must have fallen again and hit her head…causing her to forget she already conceded.  Remember what she said?  “We must accept this result and then look to the future.”

This last-ditch, foolish effort by both campaigns only delays the country coming together and moving forward.   Evidently, healing our country after such a contentious election is not a priority to them, which explains why Mr. Trump came out the victor.

To bear defeat with dignity,
to accept criticism with poise,
to receive honors with humility --
these are marks of maturity
and graciousness.

Lethal Legacy

Don’t you find it interesting Obama is taking a trip while the country is in turmoil?  Here is the President of the United States who should be asking for calm while the liberal snowflakes are throwing temper tantrums because they didn’t get their way. 

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.  He’s upset too, because his so-called legacy as President will be one of failure. With Mr. Trump in office, our country will turn around and the effects of liberal kool-aid will wear off allowing the snowflakes to see what actually happened during his eight years in office:

  • Out of control federal spending – the total debt he racked up was more than all other presidents combined
  • Encouraged illegal immigration by creating sanctuary cities (funded by taxpayers)
  • Encouraged illegal immigration by not allowing border control agents to do their jobs
  • Created eight years of people getting “entitled” rather than employed
  • Weakened national security by allowing refugees in without proper vetting
  • Allowed federal agencies to be manipulated by special interest groups
  • Brought forth the deterioration of race relations
  • Allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to infiltrate our government
  • Failed to support Israel
  • Required religious organizations to go against their beliefs by providing abortion, abortifacient drugs and birth control in their health insurance coverage
  • Took more vacations than any other U.S. President
  • Spent more money on vacations than any other U.S. President
  • Increased crime in inner cities
  • Gutted our military might
  • Fired the likes of Mike Flynn because he dared mention Radical Islamic Terrorism
  • Increased corruption of the DOJ, IRS, FBI
  • Increased murder of police officers
  • Enemies now consider the United States weak and vulnerable
  • Failed to acknowledge terror attacks within our borders were perpetrated by Radical Islam (even tried to call one of them  "workplace violence")
  • Openly supported the false label of conservatives being racist, homophobic, etc.
  • Approves of transgenders using whatever bathroom he/she chooses
  • Welcomes "artists" to perform at the White House whose lyrics promote violence against police and women.
  • Left the Democratic Party in shambles resulting in the fewest Democrats in office since 1929
And you wonder why I'm so excited about the next four years?

A Shout Out to Liberals

A week ago today, Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States.  The number of electoral votes showed a substantial victory.  I cannot say for sure, but I am willing to wager that once all the votes are counted he will also garner the lead in the popular vote as well.  If not, Clinton’s lead in that respect will be razor thin. 
The mainstream media is walking around with proverbial egg on the face because they smugly predicted a Clinton landslide.  The liberal population is pointing a finger of blame towards everyone and everything. My response is one of my favorite quotes, "When you point one finger, there are three fingers pointing back to you."
Contrary to mainstream media’s fearmongering, this election was not about racism, homophobia, etc., etc., etc.  It was about accountability, security, and freedom.  When Mr. Trump said, “Make America Great Again,” I wholeheartedly agreed.  A great America is a strong America, not one that is soft on corruption, crime, and terrorism. Not one that is soft on threats to our constitution. 
In the past eight years, we have witnessed corruption at an alarming rate within the government; crime rates soar in inner cities and multiple terror attacks from people living here.  We have seen children in the womb continue to die, second amendment rights threatened as well as religious freedom.

~ It's about time media becomes an objective source of news, rather than bought and paid for by special interests.

~ It’s about time our laws are applied equally, regardless of status or position. 

~ Our prisons need to stop pandering to inmates, thus making people think first before committing crimes. (I am a firm believer in chain gangs that work fields and roads – a means to make prisons self-funded and not a financial drain on taxpayers.) 

~ Our borders need to be secured to stop the continuing influx of terrorists and drugs.  Also, taxpayer dollars are used to pay for social programs that are supporting illegal immigrants (i.e., sanctuary cities).  Shouldn't those dollars be used for our own citizens and especially our veterans?   

~ Our constitution needs to be protected as written, not interpreted to appease a particular mindset.
We the People finally said, “enough is enough.” In all honesty, if it weren’t for the liberals, Mr. Trump would not have gotten elected.   And for that, my liberal friends, I thank you!

Election 2016 - Violence and Safety Pins

Donald Trump was elected President of the United States.  The people have spoken, regardless what anyone else says.  So instead of accepting the results we see violent protests, students too traumatized to go to class, parents telling their children they will be ripped away from them, we are nearing World War III, etc., etc., etc.    

Now comes the “Safety Pin.”  Something worn to show solidarity against racism, etc. and a silent protest against a Trump presidency.  What happens if I don’t wear one? Does that mean I can't be trusted? Does that mean I’m a racist, homophobe, etc.?  Does that mean I shouldn’t leave my home for fear of being verbally or possibly physically attacked?   As far as I’m concerned, it’s just one more way to identify and  “label” those of us who voted for change  We who voted against corruption and a declining country.  We who voted for a better economy, secure borders, affordable healthcare, protection of the unborn, protection of religious freedom and protection of the Constitution as written not interpreted. 

There wouldn’t be protests or the need for safety pins if the mainstream media and far left politicians would accept the voice of “The People,” rather than spewing false alarmist predictions of a Trump presidency.  There wouldn’t be protests if the whiny Hollywood stars would go back to their mansions or leave the country (as promised) instead of preying on the uninformed and impressionable youth who apparently don’t understand the political system.  There wouldn’t be protests if college professors would do their job and teach students responsibility and expect maturity rather than pandering to a sobbing mob who didn’t get their way. There wouldn’t be protests if winners got trophies and losers learned to try harder.  

I applaud Hillary’s concession speech and Mr. Obama’s statements supporting the smooth transition of power, but they need to do more.  They need to admonish their supporters and instruct them to respect the country we live in by accepting the results of the election.  Mr. Trump could speak out, but those protesting won’t listen to him, now will they?   

Four years from now, if Mr. Trump is not doing a good job then vote him out.  In the interim, just as I had to do with Mr. Obama for eight long years, give President-elect Trump a chance. He will be OUR President....and I for one am encouraged.  I believe he will do great things for our country. 
The ballots were counted and the results confirmed.  The sooner we accept the results and wish him well, the better off we will be.  You have a choice ... Pull up the big girl/boy panties and suck it up, or use the safety pins for your diapers. 

That is my rant for today.

Exposing Hillary #13: Thanks, Hillary!

To:   Hillary Rodham Clinton

I’ve been writing this letter in my head for quite some time and decided it was time to put it on paper. 

When your husband ran for President, I was one of his biggest supporters.  I ignored the “rumors” of his roving eyes.  I thought a strong, independent woman, such as you, would never have tolerated that type of behavior and leave him.   My heart broke for you as one after another of his dalliances were verified.  I saw the pain in your eyes when you stood by his side. I knew it must have been difficult, but I wondered why you continued to do so.  Then, instead of holding him accountable for his actions, you directed your anger towards the women instead.  You called them “trailer trash,” “looney tunes,” etc.  You publicly humiliated them when the one who should have been humiliated was your husband.  Thanks, Hillary. 

During this campaign, you attacked Mr. Trump for his unfortunate comments towards women and introduced alleged victims of abuse by Mr. Trump without an ounce of proof (of which two have already been discredited).  As a champion of women, you should have known that bringing forward false abuse claims discourages women who have truly suffered abuse.  By putting those women in the public eye, then having their stories debunked, other women will not pursue justice due to fear of being disbelieved and further humiliated.  Thanks, Hillary. 

If you are such a champion of women, why are you accepting millions of dollars from Saudi Arabia and Qatar?  Those countries are legendary in their degradation, abuse, and suppression of their women.  Thanks, Hillary. 

If you are such a champion of women, why are you taking so much money from Planned Parenthood?  Their lies and misrepresentation of abortion have done nothing but harm women facing unplanned pregnancies.  They are not provided with alternatives to abortion or accurate information as to the possible devastating physical, spiritual and emotional side effects.  They are not told their babies are “parted out” to the highest bidder.  And nowyou come out publicly that  late-term abortion up to and including the ninth month is appropriate when it would save the life of the mother.  You claimed Donald Trump was not accurate when he described the late-term abortion procedure as having babies torn apart.   Late term abortions are not used to save the life of the mother, verified by an agency tied to Planned Parenthood.  You are accepting blood money from Planned Parenthood at the expense of women and future women.  Thanks, Hillary. 

And now, it has been reported the FBI is 99% sure your illegal server was compromised by five foreign intelligence agencies.  That is not just criminal; it puts not just women at risk but the whole country.  Thanks, Hillary. 

I would love to see a strong, independent woman as the leader of our wonderful country… one that would break the glass ceiling, not her promises to women, not the law.  Thanks, Hillary.
