Opinion by George McClellan:
Well, it’s all over but the shouting. Trump wins and the “left” is still shouting. Who would ’a thought? Poor losers I reckon! Demented in thought, ungracious in loss, ungrateful, whether they realize it or not, for their salvation from totalitarism and to the fact, for most of them, that they are born Americans. Their reeducation is desperately needed.
2016 wasn’t an election, it was a revolution, a coup d’tet of sorts against the evident corruption that has become our government. Re-elected by his fellows as House Speaker, Paul Ryan, ebullient in his comments that everything has fallen into Republican hands, may have spoken too hastily. Everything has fallen into Donald Trumps hands. That’s where the final battle for America will be waged, in Republican ranks.
By that, I mean that even today, we see Trump’s transition team showing volunteers of the Republican establishment, the door. Likewise lobbyists who represent companies with vested interest in government business, are also being turned away. By the way, Congressmen, aren’t they supposed to be our lobbyists? Well, why aren’t they? Corruption of course. Dwelling in the warm muck of the swamp that Trump wants to drain, for many, is apparently preferable to being statesmen and representatives of the people. Except for election time, we don’t really count for them. Well, that idea will be re-thought?
The Donald is not part of the machine. He is not a politician and he proved it by conducting his own campaign as he saw fit, ignoring the sage advice of the media and “establishment types” who counseled he “couldn’t do this or he couldn’t do that, thats not the way its done.” Well, it must be the way it’s done because he did it!
The question is “why was he successful?” We know why, but the Main Stream Media doesn’t. It’s Because he touched on the issues important to the people harmed by the socialist policies of eight years of Obama, and the Clinton team didn’t. Most revealing is how really weak and ineffective the Democrat party really is, like a lake a mile wide, two miles long and .08 inch deep. The Democrats have run out of ideas and are left to listening to the strange and ignorant rants of the soon to be gone loon from Nevada, Senator Harry Reid.
I’m proud of the Tea Parties and the American voters. Despite the MSM’s anti-Trump rants, still continuing today, their pro-Clinton advocacy, ignoring the rising crimes of Hillary and her Foundation, Americans none-the-less, rejected the media’s message. Now, they reel in confusion, striking out on any pretext to diminish Trump, criticizing his Transition Teams actions (like they knew what to do) and complaining about Trumps supposed selections for high office. Chuckie Schumer, replacing the nasty Harry Reid as Senate minority leader, promises cooperation but hidden in his words are the double meanings that only Progressive understand.
In December 1965, a radical student at UC Berkley, one Mario Savio, made a speech that rings true with me today. He said: “There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part; you can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!” Lovely. Trump did just that with the help of some really angry American’s.
Well done America. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. So, let’s help Trump make America Great Again. Now, go get ‘em! (16 Nov 2016)
