It’s the morning after. The millions of Americans who were held in contempt for ten years have been made whole. The Hollywood stars, the college professors with one publication to their name, the political establishments of both parties, those who think they are an intellectual elite because they almost read three books in college, they all got mud in their faces, and that’s the sweetest thing. America elected a president who is too rich for the special interests to buy him. The big donors who paid into the Clinton Foundation slush fund lost all their money. F… them!
A thoroughly corrupt candidate with nothing to say aside from repeating claims of twenty years ago was decisively trounced by a political nobody, by a rank outsider. Her main aspiration, she said, was to break a (non-existent) glass ceiling. It’s been many years since anyone objected to the prospect of a female president. Does anyone think that the white blue-collar workers who put Trump over the top would have hesitated for a a second to vote for black, female professor and former Sec. of State Condoleeza Rice because she is black and because she is a woman? Sounds silly just asking the question.
The victory did not put me in a forgiving mood, nevertheless. Behavior is supposed to have consequences. The Republican notables who disparaged and insulted Donald Trump ought to make themselves very small. The whole Democratic Establishment should be forced to act like the loser it is. After all, losing House races and Senate races, and the presidential race, as well as mot governors’ races should make one humble even if one doesn’t want to be. It’s going to be a steep learning curve for the vacuous liberal elite. The big media which so shamelessly sided with Mrs Bill Clinton throughout the campaign ought to be laughed out of the public arena. They did not do themselves any favor in this race, on top of their declining readership.
I hope we will heard from Sen. Bernie Sanders who was cheated of his chance of win the Democrat primary. He has been quiet too long.
The future is fraught with uncertainties – as usual. One thing is sure though: The next Supreme Court appointments will not be the disasters they would have been under a Clinton presidency. She would not doubt have looked for a transgender lesbian member of a racial minority to begin with. A President Trump will appoint Justices who will treat respectfully the Constitution that served us so well for 250 years.
This being said, Mrs Bill Clinton did win the popular vote. This is enough to limit the size of President Trump’s moral mandate. I hope Pres. Trump will act quickly to take advantage of the Republican domination of both houses to repeal the self-destructing Obamacare and to begin a restoration of funds to our armed forces. I hope and think that he will tear up the worthless, and mendacious agreement with Iran – which is not a treaty at all according to the US Constitution. (No Senate approval= no treaty.) The mullahs ougth to be kept wondering what’s next. We know where they live.
Frankly, I never liked Trump much and I said so clearly in previous postings. The big unknown is what is he is going to do about our international trade treaties. They are good for Americans in general but deleterious to many. Something energetic had to be done at the federal level to alleviate all hardships traceable to trade agreements. The views President-elect Trum has expressed on trade treaties are plain wrong. Nearly everything he asserted about immigration is also factually wrong, to begin with.
On a personal note: I told my wife that since Hillary failed to break the glass ceiling, she, my wife had to begin obeying me. I wonder if that’s going to fly!
If you are reading this from overseas, I wonder if you are suprised. If you are, why do you think you were so misled?
