Sadly there are thousands of people on the left that are not only taking to protesting the election of Trump, but are being violent about it. The hypocrites who talk about ending hate and embracing inclusiveness are the very people spewing venom and marginalizing certain groups of people. The left has always been intolerant, they just lie to everyone and even themselves. Of course their biggest sin is believing their own rhetoric—or perhaps that’s a clear sign of their inherent ignorance. Be that as it may, they hate anyone that thinks differently than them and they are raging at the world right now.
I stated before that I didn’t mind them protesting so long as it was done peacefully. It is their right, and like I said before it is a release valve that helps keep the Republic stable. But unfortunately we have the fringe elements in there committing acts of violence. It’s probably the same agitators it always is—the anarchists, the communists and the socialists. Smashing things and screaming about the evils of capitalism. They are just opportunists embedding themselves in a larger liberal temper tantrum. That being said, it would behoove those liberals who want to be taken seriously to police their own ranks and get the violent agitators under control—or distance themselves from them. Nobody is going to take you seriously if you are out burning cars and busting the windows out of local shops and small businesses. Nothing can hurt your cause more.
And speaking of causes, I’d really love to hear just one of them articulate exactly what they hope to accomplish with all this marching and yelling. Throwing a tantrum is not a policy nor is it any form of strategic messaging. It is quite simply—pathetic. But it is their right.
All the stories about “cry ins” and grief counseling at the universities makes me roll my eyes as well. Give me a break. Crying is for children you mouth-breathers. Though exceptions for adults are made for the deaths of close friends and relatives—other than that crying is for kids. I recommend growing up if you want anyone to take you seriously.
What you see here is the Obama team getting ready to receive the Trump transitional team. They don’t seem to be terribly happy.
I really love the one weeping uncontrollably.
I am so very glad that this election is over. I have been sick of watching this thing unfold for so very, very long now. Having it end is merciful and peaceful.
Well, not for about half the country I guess. They are having a collective freak-out right now, but as a wise man once said… better them than me.
I am not going to sit here and type about reconciliation and healing. Though I do hope that happens. But I remember how the liberals went from demonizing us after the last couple of elections and then smugly turning to us after their victories to tell how it was time to “come together” and move on. I wanted to spit every time I saw that, so I will pay them the compliment of not insulting them in that manner and let them cope with this in their own way.
They are taking to the streets right now carrying signs and screaming and raging. Let them do it I say. So long as it isn’t violent. The 1st Amendment is a right and a great release valve and something that will preserve the Republic. I won’t criticize them for protesting if that’s what they want to do.
None of us know what’s in store for us in the next four years, I think that is fair to say. I know more than a few Republicans that voted for Clinton rationalizing that “the devil you know” is better than Trump. I guess we’ll see.
I do know this, Facebook sure is much more subdued today than it has been these last few weeks. I suppose that’s a good sign.
I couldn’t help feeling a deep sense of schadenfreude watching the liberals literally crying when Hillary lost. I don’t know what the future has in store for us now, but for the first time in a long time I am hopeful.
Perhaps things will turn out okay.
My forecast for President this cycle completely in error.
Trump appears to have won. Decision Desk has him over. Not going to do my own calculations for mathematical certainty, as trying to get numbers on my own is a pain, and in the past, Decision Desk has stopped updating vote totals when they call a state.

We should do a drinking game for election day. Any ideas for the rules?
Or else are we just going to get blind-ass drunk regardless?
Got bored, and checked twitter again, because I haven’t yet committed to closing my eyes until after the election.
This guy’s essay on the Clinton ties to Russian intelligence is worth a read. I’m not sure he is legit, I came across him on twitter during the primaries.
Another deployment to Iraq for US servicemembers, without anyone in the mainstream media paying any attention to it. Much ballyhoo was made by the Obama administration when we pulled out in 2011… but not much has been said after ISIS filled the vacuum and we were forced to start sending people back in 2014.
Read about it here.
This and we just lost two Special Forces soldiers fighting up in Kunduz in Afghanistan. We’ve been at war for fifteen years straight now and nobody even pays attention to it anymore. We live in interesting times.
I wonder if either of the presidential candidates have a plan for dealing with this?
Anybody remember this?
Sandy Berger the former Clinton Administration National Security Advisor, said he made a “mistake” and was just “sloppy” when an FBI investigation revealed that he had stolen Top Secret memos and documents from the National Archives relating to the events surrounding al-Qaida attacks on America during the 1990s and in the year 2000. Archive security notified the FBI when they discovered documents missing, and saw Berger stuffing papers into his pants, socks, and a leather briefcase.
You can read the whole thing here.
Upon investigation, Berger admitted that he had “made a mistake,” and took them. Unfortunately, Berger says he “lost” some of the documents, but that he returned some of them after his the FBI searched his home. Amazingly, he even returned some documents that the Archive hadn’t yet noted were missing! He apologized and said he had just been “sloppy.” This, from the former “National Security” advisor to the previous President of the United States, and security advisor to the current Democratic candidate for president.
A “mistake” is not a crime in most instances. Theft of Top Secret documents is a Federal crime that is supposed to carry extremely serious consequences. Being “sloppy” isn’t a crime. Clinton’s affairs might be described as “sloppy.” Lying under oath about them IS a crime worthy of impeachment, depending apparently upon one’s definition of the word “is.” Mr. Burger would have us believe that he was simply unaware of the procedures surrounding the security of Top Secret documents. He says he should have known that stuffing them in his pants and walking out might be a breach of security. For his “mistake” Mr. Berger has resigned as John Kerry’s advisor on national security affairs.
I think I have identified a pattern.
The guy I first heard of a this cycle Clinton-Russia connection from was @20committee.
I’ve been reading a lot of Red State. The streiff guy tends to be reliably interesting. I got into Red State through Moe Lane, who had interviewed Ted Cruz more than once for Red State.
Essentially, I think National and State Democratic Parties are evil organizations, and mostly have continuity back through at least to the 1860s. (There are several Democratic state and territorial parties that did not exist back then.)
Okay, this one made me laugh out loud… LOLz!
People tell me that Hillary is acting ‘like a retard’ since her head injury. Frankly, considering her normal behavior, I’m surprised anyone noticed! (this is a joke!) Have someone talk to her doctor and see if there’s anything he can give her.
You can find the details here.
Also, I’ve noticed she’s had an ‘odor’ lately. It reminds me of a combination of boiled cabbage, urine and farts. I’m guessing it’s either connected to her fall or simply the fact that she rarely bathes. Outside of encouraging her to take a shower once in a while, I don’t know what to do about this. — any suggestions would be appreciated.

Goodness gracious. I need to go walk this one off!
