Television news reporters, pundits and other members of the Fourth Estate have been in quite the quandary trying to figure out how, despite many of their best efforts, Donald Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States of America. You hear terms like “bigotry,” “hatred,”
Clinton supporters crying over the 2016 election not turning out as they expected
“Americans don’t want to vote for a woman,” “whitelash” or the rise of the “angry uneducated white male.” Honestly, while many of the news media, the Saturday Night Live writers and the Hollywood Ditzerati predicted landslide victories for Clinton, one could have easily seen President-Elect Trump gaining ground to make the race very close in the last three weeks before November 8th through his outreach to forgotten populations, skepticism over Secretary Clinton’s politicking and the fact that a large portion of Americans wanted to elect someone outside the realm of the career politician. The win might have been a surprise to everyone aside from The Amazing Kreskin, but the closeness of the election should not. Over the past two days, we have heard from the Left and some loud celebrities about how horrible life will be in America because Trump is everything the media told them he was to get Clinton elected as if they were all in a collective meltdown. Many of those people have said they fear for our nation’s future with a Trump presidency. Looking at the state of the nation only a few days after the 2016 election, one should fear for the future of America, but for different reasons.
It is often said that it is important to invest in our youth because they are the leaders of the coming decades. While once inspiring, that thought should now breed abject terror.

Having said that, One can understand disappointment when one’s candidate loses an election, but the reactions seen among Continue reading →
It took less than a few hours for politicians and their minions wasted little time to exploit the massacre at the Pulse night club in Orlando. President Obama gave heartstring-tugging speeches about the “evils of guns” and, like a child, could not resist making it a campaign speech by zinging Donald Trump. Still, Trump tripped over himself again trying to fuel the fires of the illegal immigration debate and House Democrats resorted to playground antics the moment it went into session after the shooting.
They are fun to watch, good for laughs and can rile up crowds. At first, they were novelty candidates who could only gain

fringe support. Donald Trump and Bernard Sanders, once thought of as comic relief, are serious front runners with a true chance to win the Republican and Democratic Party primaries, respectively. In the past, such characters would start to falter, but these two have prevailed and are clear favorites. Both men spew out one-liners as they are facts, they make outlandish promises and it appears the two are making a mockery of the electoral process. Still, no matter how bad either of these two men might be perceived by critics for the presidency, both Trump and Sanders came at a time when they are needed; their presence in each primary are good for politics for many reasons:
1, Regular voters are tired of large financial interests owning politicians, and are finally standing up to that part of the system
One of the things people complain most about is the money in politics. Hoe many times does one hear a disgruntled voter say, “they are bought and sold to the highest bidder.” Followers of both men do not seem to care that Trump says and does things on the campaign trail that makes one believe he is trying to lose the primary and Sanders does not understand basic economics and math.
