Forget Calls by Left to Meet Halfway

 

All too often, there is this game played by the leftists and the media against the right and the people. This game follows the same old route every time but somehow it almost always claims it has worked. The affair starts with calls by leftist leaders calling for peace and an end to the bitter atmosphere between the Left and the Right. The media jumps on this olive branch being offered all but demanding understanding and a meeting in the middle by the political rivals. The invitation continues to hang and the media pounds the message home at every opportunity. Eventually, the leadership from the right weakens and it starts to look as if there will be a meeting in the middle. That is when the slide begins where the left ever so faster move their positions further left and further left until meeting in the middle becomes meeting in the left rather than the middle, as advertised. Currently, there is no call from the left in the United States for a meeting between the left and the right but if the left can ever calm down and accept their loss by Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump, then possibly the two sides can talk. What is interesting, the left in the United States is increasingly moving to the left without having requested or even hinted at any hope of working together with their rivals on the right. Instead, the left is demanding that they be permitted to call the agenda because it is their fair and proper place in the way of things. They claim it is their right and that despite losing the election, they have the moral right and responsibility to continue the programs and initiatives which are the only proper and true path which the nation must go. They are convinced along with the legions who claim that Hillary Clinton did win the elections except for interference from the Russians, James Comey, the FBI, Wikileaks, sexism, working class refuse to believe a woman can be President and lack of support from the Democrat Party itself, that all the power rightfully should lie with them. So, because she won except for cheating by the world and everyone being against her, it gives the leftists the right to dictate policy as if they held both houses of Congress and the White House because if the world was the way it should be, that would be the reality.

 

Hillary Clinton miserable

I Lost? Impossible! Trump won? Impossible! He won what states? Impossible!
You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.

 

Oh, so you doubt that. Have you read my Facebook page and all the leftists telling me how the world demands that they be granted the right to rule everything? I see it every day and it is truly amazing. Now there are rumors that those behind the demonstrations and racket about Hillary winning the election are arranging for grand demonstrations across the nation in every major city. One has to wonder what they believe all their racket and screaming and protesting and just plain noise, the same type interference one used to see when they fell asleep watching television and the station had gone off the air and you just had white noise meaning nothing, will accomplish. I actually know what some of them believe they will be capable of actually accomplishing, they believe they will end up driving President Trump from office and also drive Pence, Ryan and the rest of the Republicans from office and take over permanently and control the United States without any opposition. They believe they can override the Constitution and rewrite the rules declaring themselves as permanent rulers. They honestly believe that the Republicans are fascists and thus must be driven from all the halls of power allowing themselves to be running the show with absolute power forever. They believe they should be permitted to send anyone who opposes their rule and what they wish to install to places where they can be educated to believe the correct ideas and join the program and get onboard. They see themselves as the real heart of the people and the proper ways of the world as it should be and, by gosh golly, it will be. They will not be happy until they are placed in charge and everybody is brought to understand how their ways and ideas are the only true and proper way and the United States will be brought to understand this no matter what it takes. Oh, and they are most definitely not fascists or dictatorial in any way, they are the popular and rightful leaders of the nation because Hillary Clinton received the popular vote, and that ends it.

 

Then there are those who believe that the Constitution was written the way it was for some very good and real reasons and the Electoral College is what actually chooses the President, not the popular vote. Most understand that the Electoral College was designed so that every state had a more equal representation no matter its size or population. Without this, the United States would become represented by the major cities and the rural vote and states would never have much of a say except for in the Senate. Imagine the nation if it was run completely from the top cities by population listed below.

1) New York
2) Los Angeles
3) Chicago
4) Houston
5) Phoenix
6) Philadelphia
7) San Antonio
8) San Diego
9) Dallas
10) San Jose
11) Austin
12) Jacksonville
13) San Francisco
14) Columbus
15) Indianapolis

 

Bridging the Right-Left gap is folly in the extreme. The left does not desire any compromises any longer. They simply desire one thing, complete control and nothing less. This game has been played before and those who know history understand what has started. It starts with claims of stolen elections or crimes against the state by government agents and other claims of unfair treatment or being cheated from their rightful positions of power, as long as the eventual end result is their having unrestricted and uncontested power. They use protests leading to riots and unrest and eventually the government will try and establish order which will fail. The more the government attempts to establish order the more the leftists will raise a ruckus. Eventually, there will be a savior who offers to end the unrest. They may come disguised as somebody from the right or perhaps honestly from the left but always promising to reestablish order. Once the left retakes power it is over and the leaders of the protests and violence call off their attacks. There will be those who have learned to love the violence and will continue, feel very sorry for those few remaining rioters and disruptors, as they cannot be tolerated once the left takes their presumed rightful place. They were given a name by Joseph Stalin, useful idiots. They are more of a bunch of sacrificial lambs who must be offered up for the sake of power. Power is the only thing what matters, always has been and always will be.

 

The one thing people need remember, liberals and left-wingers are not leftists. Leftists are the fanatical fringe whose ideology is less important than having and holding power. Once they have power, then things can progress peaceably. They thought they had gained power permanently after President Obama was reelected. They ignored their losing election after election in state after state. They believed that Hillary Clinton had to win simply because they had the winning idea, the first woman President. This had to work just as they used the idea of the first black President and President Obama rode that to two elections. They just knew that Hillary would win the next two elections and after eight more years, there would be nothing left of the Republican Party and the leftists would rule forever. Hillary would implement the remainder of their programs just as President Obama had done regardless of the Congress. President Hillary Clinton would simply issue Executive Orders to establish things and they would have the many separate government bureaucracies simply enact new regulations to complete their coup and that would be the end of the republic and end the need for elections. This was going to be their swan-song which was going to establish their Utopian and eternal governance. Something went wrong with the plan. The people of the United States had to have made an unforgivable mistake. They could not have elected somebody as abhorrent and detestable as Donald Trump. They had gotten their perfect Republican candidate, a non-politician who was not liked and immoral. The religious right would not be able to vote for such a person and without them, then Hillary would waltz into the White House. Now that this has happened and the plan is unraveling with President Trump ready to undo everything they had accomplished, the leftists cannot let this stand. This was it and now it has all gone awry. This was it and they are willing to destroy it all if that is what it takes to win and establish their utopia. Of course, their utopia is for the select few, but don’t tell the useful idiots that they are not included, they will not believe you. They are the true believers and will believe that even their sacrifice will have been for the cause and that is just as it should be. They might wake up some day, but not today or any day too soon. If they wake up it will be too late for them but maybe they can teach those who follow what freedom was and that it is worth fighting to regain. But the reality is, should freedom be lost now it will not come back ever for this generation and is unlikely for the next generation but if the generation after that can make it, that would be the start of the cycle again.

So We Impeach Trump So Now What?

 

Well, it appears that the only thing which will quiet the beating beasties will be to have Donald Trump’s head on a pole in front of the Capitol Building after a public, Game of Thrones style trial on the Mall with the fountain at the base of the Capitol Steps as the backdrop. After his fair public trial there will be an equally righteous beheading, of course, with the reward on display with PBS carrying the progress of Trump’s head on a stick. We probably are not being too graphic to note that it starts with the blackbirds pecking out the eyes but decency will not allow us to describe it any further. So, now what happens? Will we wait until a week passes and then on the next Tuesday with all the pomp and ceremony, and after removing the pole and the remains thereof, we will have the rightful swearing in by the Supreme Court’s Chief Justice Roberts of Hillary Clinton to be the forty-sixth President and the Democrats return to the White House, right? Well, this is the hope and idea we have often seen posted to discussions about the criminality of the Trump administration surpassing President Ulysses S. Grant and President Richard Nixon reaching never before achieved levels of perfidy. So many have stated as fact that once we get rid of the tyrant wannabe Donald Trump then the United States will get their rightful first woman President because since Donald Trump will have been found guilty of crimes pertaining to the election then the Republicans are disqualified and the Democrat candidate, that would be Hillary Clinton, who came in second, out of two, is then declared the winner. That seems to be the most popular reasoning from the main, strange and unusual discussion boards we have visited. There have even been links to news sources, or presumed news sources such as the JuniorReport and AntieMae’s Inforoom and numerous other similar sounding names, most of which our virus blocker refused to allow our servers entry. We then went to our favorite source, Encyclopedia Britannica, where we sought advice as to what really happens should President Trump be impeached, but more about that after a small amount of additional commentary.

 

The levels of #Trumpamania were of a highly agitated and fevered pitch starting almost immediately after the election results were official, some even earlier just in anticipation and just in case the worst possible of results were true and simply continued to ramp higher and higher seeming as if they would peak immediately after Inauguration Day. That proved to be an incorrect assumption on our behalf as the level still climbed for at least another six weeks and then simmered down slightly only to steady out somewhere between out of their cotton-picking minds (we know, disallowed and demeaning reference) and insanely jealous as if Donald Trump just stole your girl, boy, or alt-gendered friend (choose your appropriate gender). The stamina the anti-Trump team has shown and their ability to stay on topic all repeating the same, up to the minute, ever-changing charge of the moment has been nothing less than remarkable. They change to the most recent bombshell discovery with such uniformity that one can almost delineate the history of the reports and the near exact time they hit the presses. Even the Tea Party would be envious of such organization, sheer genius. Precision Marine Drill Teams have only slightly more disciplined displays. As of this writing, the latest is that there is a person of interest who is amongst the White House Trump team close to the President himself and a high level advisor who the FBI has decided they may be interested in questioning as he should be knowledgeable of a direct Russian plot to influence the election where monies have changed hands and other inappropriate interchanges also were perpetrated and this top advisor will definitely turn on President Trump if only to save their own neck. This time it is a solid, slam dunk evidence and the Trump team and all his minions (those little yellow guy are everywhere when there are crimes and unimaginable evil at play) can pack and get ready for their suites at that luxury Federal Prison at the Eglin Federal Prison Camp in Florida with the golf course and all the amenities. Actually, after a 60 Minutes special about what was termed “Club Fed” the golf courses and lobster dinners are gone and the best an inmate can hope for is a minimum security prison and a round of Frisbee golf at a makeshift course, and then only during free time. Back to Donald Trump and his shrinking time left in the White House. We do agree that his time left in the White House is shrinking to just less than four years or maybe just under eight years, with his reelection pending.

 

The actual hope of the people suffering from #Trumpamania is that simply to quiet them the Congress will take the best advised criminal charge that the FBI can provide the greatest number of individuals, often witnessing by deposition given in writing or by video with face blurred and voice electronically altered so they can remain anonymous and not face any further questions about what they are claiming to know. This Impeachment will occupy the House of Representatives for a few weeks, maybe months, and they will find there is no reason to charge or send recommendations to the Senate for an actual trial. The House of Representatives acts like a sort of Grand Jury in deciding if there is sufficient evidence of wrongdoing at a level sufficient to warrant Impeachment. Once they have decided and if they feel the evidence are sufficient, then they pass everything along to the Senate where the actual trial is held and presided over by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. In the Senate these people who made anonymous depositions could find themselves subpoenaed to appear in person so the Senators can cross-examine them and get clarification on any innuendo which carried sufficient weight in the House of Representatives but not in the trial held by the Senate where the demand of proof is far higher and a full two-thirds vote is required (sixty-seven Senators). No President has ever been Impeached and found guilty and been removed from office, just a little historical side note. Two have been Impeached, William Jefferson Clinton in recent memory and Andrew Johnson (from a past life memory). Richard Nixon very likely would have been impeached and found guilty which is why he resigned before the House of Representatives could take their full floor vote. It has been stated that the leading Republicans from the House of Representatives and the Senate came to the White House and informed President Nixon they were not going to cover his backside on these charges and he was likely to be convicted so falling on his sword was their advice. He followed their advice figuratively even if not quite literally.

Now for the reality check and some distressing news for many who believe, getting rid of President Donald Trump will result in an overturning of the election results and the Inauguration of President Hillary Clinton, the first woman President. The truth is the election stands as the limit for challenging the validity of the election is the date that the Electoral College votes and the House of Representatives verify that vote. Once these steps are accomplished, the results are set in stone, unalterable, done and done. This means that the Line of Succession is set thus remove President Donald Trump and get President Mike Pence. If somehow both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were to be removed at the same time, this would make Speaker of the House Paul Ryan the President. It simply does not get any better as one continues on. The Line of Succession is as follows; 1 Vice President, 2 Speaker of the House of Representatives, 3 President Pro Tempore of the Senate, 4 Secretary of State, 5 Secretary of the Treasury, 6 Secretary of Defense, 7 Attorney General, 8 Secretary of the Interior, 9 Secretary of Agriculture, 10 Secretary of Commerce, 11 Secretary of Labor, 12 Secretary of Health and Human Services, 13 Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, or Secretary of Transportation, 14 Secretary of Energy, 15 Secretary of Education, 16 Secretary of Veterans Affairs, and finally 17 Secretary of Homeland Security. Currently the vast majority, possibly all in the not too distant future, are appointees of President Donald Trump with two of the top ten being retired Generals from the United States Military. Whether or not that is good news or bad news is completely dependent upon your feelings about the military and its commanders in particular. The one item of interest is that nowhere on that list is there a slot for the losing candidate from the previous election, or simply put, no room for Hillary Clinton. So, a peace of advice for those suffering the most extreme cases of #Trumpamania largely because Impeaching or otherwise removing Donald Trump from the White House will result in Hillary Clinton becoming President, save your energies and start to dedicate them to electing Hillary Clinton President in the 2020 or 2024 elections or maybe you would prefer Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. Imagine the first woman President also being the first Native American President, unless Ms. Warren retired her Native American heritage now that she is done with her positions at Harvard University. Use all this energy in a more fruitful endeavor or, if yelling in all caps every other posting on Facebook really does make for your self-worth, then by all means carry on in the manner you have become accustomed.

 

For those who find this inexorable and eternal clamoring over the Russian connection and the myriad of other charges leveled thus far with new ones to come every day to be a bit over the top and annoying, we have some really bad news. Let us imagine for a moment and do a thought experiment about what happens should President Donald Trump step down either by choice or by Impeachment and Mike Pence is sworn in as the next President. Does anybody believe that calm will return to the world or do you suspect a new eruption to levels never witnessed as they immediately tie President Mike Pence with charges of collusion along with Donald Trump with the Russians to destroy Hillary Clinton denying her the Presidency. There have already been charges against Pence as well as against number seven on the succession chart, Attorney General Jeff Sessions as well as number three, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. Now that this list of succession will be attainable easily with the reading of this article, as looking it up would take too much valuable time away from tweets and social media storming against President Donald Trump and company. But, as Rosie O’Donnell stated on Twitter that “WHEN TRUMP GOES SO DOES SESSIONS AND GORSUCH GETS REMOVED GARLAND SWORN IN EVERY EO INVALIDATED” The all caps proves this is indeed fact and needs to be yelled from every tall building top and mountain top in the land. There is a small problem though, and that is none of it is accurate. As stated above, the Trump team remains, Gorsuch was nominated and approved for the Supreme Court, a lifetime position, Sessions would remain until and if then President Mike Pence might replace him. And Garland still does not see his promotion and the Executive Orders remain unless, you guessed it, President Mike Pence nullified them, highly unlikely. But thank you for the civics lesson in left-world where things are as you wish they were, not as they really are. These protests in the social media are simply an attempt to implode the governance of the United States.

 

This method, or at least something similar, has happened numerous times before. There are agitators who rampage through the streets destroying store-fronts and other property. Pressure is kept on the government charging the leadership with being poor stewards of the public interest while destroying the ability of the nation to function in an advantageous manner. Businesses start to fail or simply pack-up and head for greener pastures where they would be safe. Others will seek somebody, anybody who promises to end the violence. Then a savior steps from the shadows and exclaims that they have what it will take to make the streets and other venues safe again. Then, in a very bloody couple of days, if even that long, the rowdies and agitators are simply executed in the street and their bodies carted off thrown into mass graves. Promise delivered at a simple price, freedom and liberty are now gone, sold for momentary safety. This is where the obligatory quote from Benjamin Franklin must be used, as he stated, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” This has been proven not only true but in the worst possible of ways. Those who have attempted to exchange freedom for safety have often ended up slaves to a fascist governance which took on a war that eventually destroyed the society, its cities and everything the people had hoped to protect when they traded away their liberty and freedoms to a dictator whose sole interest was absolute power and world conquest.

 

This brings us to one final point, world conquest. Many in the developed world have put away the idea of world conquest. Their reasons are good as they endured World War I and World War II where world conquest and the idea of empire were put to rest. But that does not mean that the thought of world conquest has been eradicated from the minds of tyrants and madmen. Just for a few choice individuals or people who believe they will rule the world and force everybody to bend to their demands, take North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. He has delusions that his destiny is to be ruler of the world, and he is building the weapons with which to accomplish this task. Then there are the leading ruling Mullahs, the Ayatollahs of Iran of which the Grand Ayatollah and Supreme Leader Seyyed Ali Khamenei is currently attempting to oust the Islamic State from the southeastern quarter of Syria such that Iran will have created their Shiite Crescent reaching from the Iranian shores on the Indian Ocean to the Syrian and Lebanese shores on the Mediterranean Sea. Iran holds the coasts of Lebanon and Syria and the southern forty-three percent of Iraq from Baghdad south (see map below). From this position, the Iranian leadership intends on conquering Kuwait, or absorbing it leaving an appointed Shiite Kuwaiti to rule as their puppet, and actually conquer the oil fields in the northeastern parts of Saudi Arabia. This will grant Iran control over the largest total collection of oil granting them control over the price of oil worldwide. This the Iranian leadership sees as vaulting them to take over Islam and then use the nearly two-billion Muslims to conquer the world as stated is the final predetermined destiny written in the Quran. Along these very lines the Saudi Royal Family see their Wahhabi sect of Islam leading the Muslim world to its final predetermined destiny written in the Quran. Also, there is Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who has visions of reconstituting the Ottoman Empire and perhaps, after that has been established, the Islamic world will recognize him as its Sultan to lead them onward to world conquest as the final predetermined destiny written in the Quran. China has always seen themselves as one of the undefeatable powers of the world and as such having an overt and unequalled influence over the world giving them a form of world control. The Russians also view their nation as one of the last empires stretching across approximately ten time zones, more than any other country. China and Russia both have valuable resources, which further their abilities to influence the world. The main point is that there are forces on earth who still cling to the idea of world conquest and placing the entirety of the world under a single ruler, namely their ruler.

Oh, and we must not forget the United Nations which may start to disintegrate in the near future. If the United Nations is going to collapse, one of the initial signs will be Israel departing their company and following that up with ignoring their decisions seeing them as immoral and simply facilitating one of the groups to take control of the rest of the world, and Israel will not tolerate or play that game. Israel desires helping all in need who are willing to accept the assistance from Israel, and those who refuse to acknowledge the Israeli ability to help them simply may not realize the error of those ways. Unfortunately, these same people when they suffer blame Israel and not their leaders because they are raised on a steady diet of being anti-Israel, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic. Israel has garnered the hatred of the Islamic world, or at least the vast majority thereof. Israel has also garnered the most vile treatment from far left dictators and far left politicians, mostly those leftists from the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe. The Europeans regularly hurt Israel by abstaining allowing the Islamic block in the governing board of UNESCO to denounce Jews owning land or having a national origin. They have completely ignored the writings of Torah and the Old Testament instead adopting the Quran and the idea that it is the final world of Allah, not Hashem, not the Judeo-Christian deity as Hashem is completely different and in opposition to Allah and much of the Quran.

 

But one need not worry because Europeans will soon find themselves obeying Sharia, the strictest interpretation of Islamic superiority enforced through the law itself. Some will simply slide under the rising tide and the constant beating of the waves, and which nations awaken before it is too late and address the problem directly, by demanding their culture survive, will decide where the lines are drawn when the final battle for the rule of the planet arrives. This future is not a pretty sight but it is coming and we must prepare, and splitting the population in half and setting one upon the other is just the disruption that the powers of Islam desire. Keep fighting against the other side because only your side is capable of proper governing. Keep fighting to tear down the institutions that were designed to rule in a just manner with all sides having a voice. Demand safe places where one can run when confronted with a reality that shakes their world-view and they require therapy and puppies to pet. Demand the levers of power for those whose main desire is the destruction of your way of life. Support those who believe that they can use Islam to conquer the world and then redefine Islam as their eco-friendly socialist utopian quagmire. Islam will not bend and once they have facilitated the Islamic takeover, most of those who installed Islam at the top of the ruling party will likely be amongst the first to feel the sting of Islamic Sharia. Their acts which lead to their being labeled apostates as they will have previously willingly taken on the title of follower of Islam giving it as much importance as one does their book club which has a brunch every other month.

 

This was the path that Hillary Clinton promised, more Islam because Islam opposes the same ideas that Hillary Clinton hates, all those who are Evangelical Christians, believers of Christ, religious Jews, Zionist Jews and all who mold their lives to follow the dictates of the Judeo-Christian Deity. Islam is the latest tool for those who believe that there are no deities that science will define everything, and their lives are to be spent in the moment, as nothing else is certain. Hedonism is their governing principle and pleasure for their own is their goal and their greatest pleasure is power, power which permits their dictating to everyone else how they must live while doing as they please in their lives. They desire the power to apply the rules they believe are necessary to keep space between them and the little people. They actually detest the little people though they will use them for as long as they willingly and blindly follow. This is true of both political parties in the United States as well as the vast majority of those in Europe and the rest of the developed world. This is what is behind the official hate for Donald Trump by the Democrats and the never-Trump Republicans led by John McCain. Continue with your rage as it has blinded you from realizing the damage you may end up causing as a result of your actions. Eventually the people in the United States will elect a person who will so damage the nation finishing the job begun by President Obama and actually the start of the progressives drive to destroy the republican form of governance such that they could usher in the new governance where the biggest twenty cities chose the President and nobody else matters. That is the beauty of the Electoral College, but the leaders of these hate Trump people know the reasons and desire to end allowing Wyoming to have any say. They want Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, San Diego, Dallas, Denver, Seattle and perhaps another dozen and they would rule the country under the desired new means for making the Progressive way the only way. Take away the Electoral College and this will be the future, and there will be no turning back once the rules are changed. There was a reason that the popular vote did not elect a President, and that was a good thing as it gave the smallest amongst you a voice. Now you desire drowning it out just as you drown out any discourse on social media and simply stick to your slogans which lie mostly along the line of Trump, Russia, Cash Paid, Election, Cheating, Impeach all Republicans, Democrat be granted permanent rule, end the Republic. Failure of the system to be protected will result in the end of the United States.

If Only We Had President Hillary, Just Imagine

 

Think about it, just for a moment. Try and imagine how quiet the world would be. Imagine Facebook full of kitten and puppy videos and situational bloopers from some unfortunate’s life caught by cellphone, no calls for impeachment, no screaming day and night, a President who is being Presidential, professionally run signing ceremonies, a President working in the White House and no trips to Mar-A-Lago every weekend, the world at peace and everything nice and quiet with all wonderful reports in the media, well, except for those malcontents at Fox News. That is what we would have if only we had President Hillary Clinton who won the popular vote, did we mention she won the popular vote? Instead of the unprofessional circus being presented by team Trump we would have professionals appointed to the Cabinet and a real progressive and rationally tempered and modernistic viewing judge instead of this anachronistic Judge Gorsuch all tied up in originalist interpretations making decisions pretending he’s with John Adams in a powdered wig. We would have a polished, modern, professional administration and the media would be in step and the United States would appear to be functioning smoothly just as it had for the eight years under President Barack Hussein Obama. That would be so great to have the United States going along with all the European nations in sync with the plans and no threatening our friends and demanding they spend their monies as we demand of them. The government spending our taxes as we wish funding those so proper and feel-good projects such as Planned Parenthood, Meals on Wheels and the rest of the progressive collection. Wouldn’t that be wonderful not having all those ugly demonstrations because with President Hillary Clinton who would want to protest and those who might have better things to do such as earn and pay taxes so we can do all those wonderful things which are not getting done under President Trump.

 

There are many who would cheer making the above the new reality claiming that things really would be so much greater if only… The Trumpettes would have heart failure just thinking about a President Hillary. There is a difference though, with a President Hillary Clinton there is one truth, there would not be demonstrations because the Trump supporters would have accepted that the election went the other way and would have returned back to their lives working and waiting for the next election hoping to find a new candidate to carry the message. That is what happened after Senator McCain lost, that is what happened after Senator and Governor Romney. That is what would have happened had Trump lost. The one thing the Republicans and conservatives have learned to be very good at is accepting losses. The Democrats and especially the progressives and the leftists, refuse to accept losses and revolt at any reality that they dislike. They rise into the streets, well, not all, but enough of these types revolt at not getting their way. Some will run and repeat every rumor of a crack in the Trump Administration. Many have jobs and are not all that different from their conservative counterparts. They continue their lives after every election and go home to their families and continue soldiering on. But there are legions whose jobs are agitation, demonstration, disturbance, turmoil, upheaval and whatever it takes to force their revolution and agenda with no regards for anyone else. They are backed, backed, and backed even deeper by organization and funding. Many of these disruptors who were marching on Washington D.C. and numerous other left leaning, liberal major cities are not part of any organizations but are the numbers who show for the correct causes, the correct candidates, the correct reasons and for anything labeled the correct. Then there are those who organize, the community organizers just like President Obama where he started, the ones who seed the crowds with their specialists who scream the right words to start a chant, start the screaming yelling down some right winger so nobody can hear anything they have to say, start the crowd moving in the needed direction, the ignition point for executing the necessary plans. Then there are the real agitators who initiate violence when instructed to do so and then duck before the arrests are made as you cannot agitate if you are not there.

 

There are organizations high and low and everything between which work for the same ends though their methods are at times diametrically opposites. As there are some who are revolted by violence of any sort and others who live by the principle that eggs must be broken when making an omelet and are determined to make their omelet regardless of any consequences. Some are gentle and kind while others rough and some are brilliant while others are mindless followers. The one binding cement holding these disparate groups together is their thirst for what they believe is correct and true and that is their place in the halls of power. The majority of liberals accepted their loss in the last Presidential election. The ones running wild in the streets and on campuses across the United States demanding their rightful place simply because their cause is right and their demands are just and it is their right to be in power and to rule justly, rightly and instill their world whether the people desire their causes or not. Anything other than those ideals they pledge to have any say in making the decisions of the government is an anathema which they find completely unacceptable. In their world there is only one reality and it must match their beliefs and grant them everything they believe should be and anything which does not support their reality needs to be changed, corrected. The demonstrations witnessed after the elections and into the New Year through the Inauguration and through most of February finally petering out with small demonstrations reaching into March but the mass demonstrations have ended.

 

There is still a great demonstration continuing on Facebook and the rest of the social media. The fires of rage and the determined undermining of the President Trump, his administration and the Republican control of the two houses of Congress are still being stoked and standing in the ready. Many have a deep hatred of President Trump for his having the audacity to have stolen the Presidency from Hillary Clinton as it was her right to ascend to the Oval Office and continue the Obama policies and the cementing of the progressive agenda. After all, that was the natural order of things as far as every leftist, progressive, liberal and Democrat believed. The demographics depicted a nation where no Republican would ever again climb into the White House except to take the tour. The maps all depicted a red-blue divide which would elevate Hillary Clinton into the White House without a second thought. The vote was a matter of formality and it was only to be necessary to take the ballets and counting was not even to be necessary. But the law required counting. The media was all ready to attend Hillary Clinton’s coronation and the popular count made that all the more expected. But something was amiss and somehow Donald Trump, a real estate magnet who was nowhere near as successful as he claimed and a neophyte as a politician. This joke of a Republican candidate for President should not be taken seriously yet was gaining the electoral votes from states which were Hillary’s. What was happening? The world must have been spinning out of its natural orbit. The universe was experiencing some dark mystery which was beyond description and states like Pennsylvania and Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin were going to Donald Trump, even Florida and that did it, he trounced the unopposable woman and became the next President. This rocked their world even more because the media had spent the entire two previous years talking about how Hillary Clinton was a lock to win the Presidency.

 

The media did waver in the last few weeks showing Donald Trump climbing slowly but inexorably gaining until a few days before the election when he and Hillary Clinton appeared tied. Impossible as it may have seemed, the election became a contest but surely Hillary Clinton still held the keys to the Electoral College even if Trump managed to win the popular vote. Before Election Day we heard from the leftists, progressives, liberals and Democrats how the popular vote was meaningless and Trump could win all the votes he wanted, the Electoral College would decide the election and surely Hillary had that all locked up. Well, not exactly as it turned out to be the opposite was true. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by a safe margin but Donald Trump won the Electoral College handily. Suddenly the message from the Hillary supporters were screaming that the Electoral College was a backwards and outdated idea which was denying the real winner of the election, Hillary Clinton, who took the popular vote by a fairly sizeable margin from her deserved office. They totally switched their tune as soon as the music conflicted with the facts and their new tune now swirled around the exact opposite of the one from the day before and they were demanding that what they wished for the Republicans now be the reality as it now favored their candidate. All of a sudden there were comparisons between California and Wyoming claiming that Wyoming was unfairly represented. If it had happened in the opposite and Trump received the popular vote but Hillary won the election would arguments comparing Texas to Washington D.C. claiming Washington D.C. was unfairly represented have been acceptable? Honestly, no, it would have been seen as a sour grapes argument and laughed at and ridiculed on social media, but the California against Wyoming comparison is given the respect of being amongst one of the smartest and most respected arguments possible all but revered by the Hillary Clinton supporters.

 

So, what is coming in the future? The initial move challenging the vote and demanding recounts came immediately after the election and quickly failed. Then came the more long term plan of mounting a series of investigations until one can be rallied around and bring about the impeachment of President Donald Trump. But as we have pointed out previously, this would not accomplish the desired goal of placing Hillary Clinton or any other leftist, progressive, liberal or Democrat into the Presidency. There have been those who have described also impeaching Mike Pence and then Paul Ryan but even this would fail to place any leftists, progressives, liberals and Democrats into the Oval Office. One could go down the United States Presidential line of succession comes in and the first fifteen positions all would present another Republican either from the Congress or the Cabinet. Nowhere in the conceivable line of succession can one find a single Democrat or even a non-conservative Republican. Well, until a new person receives Senate approval, then Secretary of Agriculture Mike Young who is a leftover from the Obama administration is a Democrat but he still sits in position nine thus highly unlikely to ascend even under the most optimistic impeachment dreams. Impeachment, despite being the wildest dream of many online posters, had about a zero percent chance of achieving their desired goal, a progressive liberal into the Oval Office.

 

So, where does this leave the most determined leftists who demand that they take their place as the rightful leaders of the United States as they are the true and real intelligent people who are understanding and sensitive enough to rule over any modern and proper society? What series of events can possibly lead to their ascendance into the positions of power and give them their rightful promise of permanent leadership over the United States and eventually the planet. The first thing we need to understand is that a large number, if not the vast majority, of true leftists, the revolutionary leftists refuse to wait four years and allow for the grand advances made under President Obama to be walked back and undone. They demand power and they demand it now. Anything else is an anathema to them and completely outside the realm of acceptable. These are dangerous thoughts and ideas. We can pray that these people do not decide to act on the only means by which they can actually take power, revolution. The fearful thing is that leftists sufficient numbers rather than sufficiently close to majority of the percentage of the population, simply enough of a percentage that they can count on the needful support, then they will take power by means of deceit, trickery or brute force. All of these can be credited as being a coup even if through deceit and trickery they take command of the country.

View of an American Revolutionary Coup

 

Hitler and the Nazis used deceit and compromise which they offered never expecting to meet their side once they received the powers they craved. The emperors of Rome took power through deceit and use of power taking control of the military forces closest to Rome and bringing them illegally into the city to seize the Senate and force their idea of a compromise. Napoleon simply offered the French order and an end to the near constant state of revolution since the disastrous French Revolution did not present the kind of stable governance and ordered society with relief from the poverty and desperation which existed in the final years of the monarchy. Mussolini promised order and making the trains run on time, which he succeeded in doing by executing train crews who arrived late from their schedules. The governance which in modern times which has been produced by such coups, such forced changes from democracies, has been some form of fascism be it Nazis, Communism, or straight Fascism as in Italy and Spain. The problem is should there ever be a revolution in the United States, the world would fall into a darkness which would necessitate likely thousands of years before freedom and liberty would shine their light on planet Earth. This would truly be a sad state of affairs for the foreseeable future. We pray that such will not befall the world, especially with much of the world facing crises in varying degrees and from disparate threats which could only worsen with no promise of an intervention from the United States.

 

The problem is without a great and long-lasting surge, an economic explosion whose effects continue for decades, preferably centuries, allowing for the United States to climb from its current state of ever-growing debt and actually become debt-free, then the United States will eventually fall becoming insolvent and beyond any ability to pay off her debt even with her entirety of resources. If this should be accomplished it would be for the first time since the Presidency of Andrew Jackson, the only President to leave office with the United States debt-free. Even George Washington was unable to make that statement nor was Thomas Jefferson, another President who decried debt, and only the debt hating President Andrew Jackson who probably hated the debt beyond all other efforts he would accept as his challenge. The great day was January 8, 1835, when the debt was retired and Washington D.C. gathered with everyone who was anyone and celebrated this monumental accomplishment, a truly monumental accomplishment. One wonders if this can be accomplished ever again. One truly wonders.
