    Democrats Still in Denial – Fearful of Facing Reasons for Their Loss

    Jim Hoft Dec 18th, 2016 8:38 am 67 Comments

    Guest post by Joe Hoft

    [​IMG]
    The Democratic Party’s response to their recent shellacking in the November 2016 elections is to blame the results on everything but their terrible candidate and destructive policies.

    Democrats first blamed the 10% of the media that they don’t control as the reason for their demise. This is in part true. Americans by the millions went to sites like this one to obtain fair and unbiased news reporting during this election cycle. At the same time WikiLeaks released Hillary campaign manager John Podesta emails that showed that the Democrats have nearly total control of the media. The Democrats believe if they stop free speech all together they can then win elections. They don’t consider changing their positions.

    Democrats next asserted that the elections were rigged, agreeing with Donald Trump. They enlisted the services of Green Party candidate Jill Stein to request recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. This did not work and it supported Trump’s assertion that the elections are rigged and Democrats are doing the rigging. (See Detroit and Nevada for examples.)

    [​IMG]

    The Democrats next blamed Russia for interfering with the election and giving Trump the win. This insanity puts not only the US election process in peril, it also puts the US relations with Russia back to the Cold War era. If the Russians wanted a particular candidate to win in this year’s election, it was Hillary Clinton. She gave them the Russian reset, uranium in the US and an easy rode in their takeover of Crimea, etc.

    Finally, the Democrats are trying to overturn the election by requesting that the Republican Electoral College candidates vote not for Trump but for anyone else – they are not saying vote for Hillary, wink, wink…. What arrogant and misguided lefties. They really do come across as sore dumb losers.


    As the Democrats continue with their madness of blaming everyone and everything for their loss instead of themselves, Republicans are quick to encourage Democrats to look within like they did after the 2012 election loss to Obama. Let’s hope they do.

    In 2013 after the Romney loss, “Republicans listed 6 Big Takeaways From The RNC’s Incredible 2012 Autopsy”. These items included the following:

    1- Pass Immigration Reform Yesterday

    This position encouraged amnesty for all illegal aliens in the US and to keep the borders open. (Trump won the 2016 election by doing the opposite including promising to ‘Build That Wall”.)

    2- Listen To Minorities

    This position said in part, “Minority outreach doesn’t always come naturally to the party.” (Trump won a significant number of minorities by pointing out that Democrat policies stink and by promising jobs and to help those in the inner cities.)

    3- Gays Aren’t Going Away

    This RNC position leaned towards endorsing gay marriage. (Trump won by staying away from the topic of gay marriage, but won more gays than ever by being the candidate who would protect Americans and gays from radical Islamic terrorism.)

    4- Epistemic Closure Is Real

    “Epistemic closure,” a condition in which conservatives block out all dissenting voices until eventually their own arguments sound nonsensical to anyone who doesn’t already agree with them. The RNC report concluded this was a real and growing problem. (This has not changed. When Trump rose through the Republican primaries a group of ‘Nevertrumpers’ in their infinite wisdom decided they knew more than the voters and did all they could to stop Trump from winning. This continued through the general election. Still today a number of Republicans think they know better than Trump and the American people.)

    5- Look To The States

    The RNC report highlighted governorships, like Chris Christie in New Jersey and John Kasich in Ohio, who both were ‘moving to the center and gaining in popularity’. (Trump crushed these two candidates for President in the primaries by sticking to conservative positions where it mattered most. Trump talked about poor trade deals, getting people jobs and protecting the American people from terrorists and as a result won in an Electoral College landslide.)

    6- Stop Being The Rich Guys

    The RNC report was concerned that the party was too closely tied with wealthy interests. (Donald Trump is a billionaire who stood up for the little guy.)

    Some in the Republican Party think that their Takeaways from the 2012 election are what won the 2016 election. This was not the case. If not for Trump it is highly unlikely that the Republican Party would be celebrating a White House win.

    We can only hope the Democrats create a similar list of takeaways that prevent them from winning in the future as well.

    Liberal Writer Accuses Trump Of Bombing Yemen, Forgets Obama Is Still President

    [​IMG]

    Salon.com published a piece by Rebecca Gordon and originally published at titled, “Hey, President Donald Trump: Do you know where your bombs are falling?”which implies that Trump is bombing “Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, and, oh yes, Yemen.”

    Just one thing Ms.Becky, Trump isn’t bombing anyone. He’s not the President yet, “You Leftist moron.” So you might want to take your complaints up with Obama. You’ll have to wait a while though, he’s golfing in Hawaii for the next three weeks at the tax payer’s expense.

    [​IMG]

    Chicks on the right Report:

    The irony of it all is that Becky went on a lengthy diatribe about why the U.S. shouldn’t be involved in Yemen, despite the fact that the country is overrun with rebels, mostly supplied with weapons sold to them by the Obama Administration.

    She also, of course, takes the time to perpetuate BS claims on Trump’s cabinet picks, all which have been dispelled at length.

    “Donald Trump has already promised to nominate a segregationist attorney general, a national security adviser who is a raging Islamophobe, a secretary of education who doesn’t believe in public schools, and a secretary of defense whose sobriquet is ‘Mad Dog.’ How worried should we be that General James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis may well be the soberest among them?”

    Got to love the Liberal Media! They truly keep us entertained.

    The rampant liberal desperation is music to my ears. Who the fuck do these people think they are. Their self admired, affluent opinions flush with snobbery. They think so highly of themselves that they believe others might believe their words to have a grain of value? It's a common arrogance they all share, from grade school teacher all the way to POTUS. Next time I see Sheen I hope he is sucking his thumb and crying like a little girl.

    Michael Moore: Trump ‘Has No Right To Enter’ White House

    by IAN HANCHETT17 Dec 20165,039

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” filmmaker Michael Moore argued that President-Elect Donald Trump “has no right” to enter the White House.

    Moore called for “protesting, obstructing, disrupting, civil disobedience.”

    EDIT by Irons:
    Why not get your fat commie ass out there and show them how it's done, mike? Be the first to be shoved face down into a porta potty by a couple Bikers for Trump volunteers who will be there by the thousands. You thought the RNC convention was too hot for BS? That was nothing compared to what will be guarding Trump's inauguration.

    He added, “I mean, the man has no right to enter that house. There are too many questions about the — whatever collusion was going on. I mean, they admitted that they were in touch with the Russians during the campaign. They have said that. So, we would need to know as Americans what the hell was going on there, and he does not have a mandate. He does not have a mandate.

    Brilliant – Congressman King Calls for Investigation of CIA Head John Brennan…
    Posted on December 18, 2016 by sundance

    It is remarkable how disingenuous, and hypocritical, partisan democrats (and media) become with the issue of manipulation and intents of CIA Chief John Brennan…

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Everyone reading here is old enough to remember Democrat Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Diane Feinstein, accusing Brennan of lying to her and congress; and worse yet, accusing Brennan of illegally hacking into, and spying on, her staff and congressional oversight personnel. –SEE HERE

    Now, however, all of a sudden, John Brennan is the bastion of intelligence integrity…. Ridiculous.

    Thankfully, not everyone has forgotten. Representative Peter King again calls out CIA Head Brennan, and better still – says Brennan should be investigated.





    “It seems like to me — there should be an investigation what the Russians did but also an investigation of John Brennan and the hit job he seems to be orchestrating against the president-elect.”

    Trump's fury at Democrats' intimidation of electors: The Donald lashes out as Electoral College prepares to make his win official -despite attempt to undermine democracy
    • The Electoral College will meet Monday to formally elect Trump
    • Some of the 538 members have been urged not to give their vote to Trump, even though they may accrue fines or even break the law
    • Members have reported getting death threats
    • Trump said if his supporters acted the way Democrats do, they would be 'scorned' and 'called terrible names'
    • Many pointed out the times his supporters had acted violently - and even Trump himself said so on Friday

    "This Is Stupid" - Pennsylvania Electors To Get Police Protection

    [​IMG]
    by Tyler Durden
    Dec 19, 2016 7:58 AM


    While today's Electoral College vote is not expected, by most, to lead to any surprises, and Donald Trump will almost certainly be selected as the next president in a vote that is usually routine but takes place this year amid allegations of Russian hacking to try to influence the election, some states are not taking any chances and following last week's report that Trump electors have seen a flurry of death threats, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that electors in Pennsylvania will have police protection as they cast their ballots on Monday.

    One Pennsylvania elector, Ash Khare, told the Gazette that he receives thousands of emails a day trying to sway his vote.

    "I'm a big boy," said Khare, an India-born engineer and a longtime Republican from Warren County, who estimates he receives 3,000 to 5,000 emails, letters, and phone calls a day from as far away as France, Germany, and Australia. "But this is stupid. Nobody is standing up and telling these people, 'Enough, knock it off.' "

    As a reminder, Pennsylvania allows its electors to vote for someone other than the candidate who won the state.

    The messages have escalated to death threats, and so the 20 electors will have state troopers escorting them to cast their votes Monday.

    As reported previously, GOP electors have been under pressure over the past month from anti-Trump groups to not vote for President-elect Donald Trump.

    "I take my job as an elector very seriously, and in Pennsylvania, Donald Trump won," said Mary Barket, a Northampton County resident and president of the Pennsylvania Federation of Republican Women. "So any argument thereafter, especially about the nature of him being a president, is not going to have an effect on me." But she said she generally doesn't open the messages.

    "I don't have the time, first of all," she said. "Second of all, there's really not much to be said that's going to do anything to change my mind."

    Barket said she has been inundated with phone calls and emails and letters over the last month. Some tell her to read the Federalist Papers or express fear over Trump becoming the country's commander-in-chief.

    In interviews with the Gazette last week, a number of electors said there was no chance anyone will defect. "There is zero chance of that," said elector Lawrence Tabas, a Philadelphia lawyer and general counsel for the state GOP. "If you want to place a bet on that in Vegas, you can make enough money to retire."

    Tabas said state officials this year gave out contact information for all 20 electors. In his case, that included his work and cell phones, his work email, and his home address. He can't read every email or letter - and many of them have just been form letters with different signatories.

    He said most of the conversations he's had have been respectful. Others have veered off into what he would only call "nasty" territory. He would not give details. Khare said he received a letter from a 7-year-old describing his fear of Trump. Others have sent him photos of their families, saying they were worried about their future under a Trump presidency.

    One woman called to tell him her husband had left the country. Another called him at 1 a.m., while he was in a deep sleep. He was also sent a copy of John F. Kennedy's Profiles in Courage, which focuses on the careers of eight senators whom Kennedy felt had shown courage under "enormous pressure" from their parties and constituents.

    Khare said he understood that the country is deeply divided and that emotions are running high, but said he was clear on where he stands.

    "I will not change my mind," he said.

    One GOP elector in Michigan has received death threats as well.

    * * *

    Trump won 306 electoral votes on Election Day, crossing the 270 electoral vote threshold needed to clinch the presidency and surpassing Hillary Clinton’s 232 electoral votes. Monday’s results are expected to match those figures almost exactly. But thousands are expected to protest across the country as part of a long-shot effort to convince 37 GOP electors to cast their ballots for someone other than Trump.

    While the frantic push to exert pressure on the Republican electors isn’t expected to change the outcome of Monday's vote, it has put the Electoral College under a rare spotlight.

    Now Bill Clinton blames the FBI for his wife's defeat claiming Comey cost her the election - and accuses Trump of 'knowing nothing except how to make angry, white men vote'
    • Bill Clinton answered shoppers' questions about the elections when he was spotted at a small town New York bookstore
    • Like his wife, he blamed FBI Director James Comey's letter to Congress about the email investigation for losing Hillary Clinton the election
    • When a patron asked the ex-president if Donald Trump was smart, Clinton suggested that the president-elect 'didn't know much'
    • 'One thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him,' Bill Clinton added
    • The ex-president also revealed that he spoke with Trump the day after the election and the president-elect acted as if they were still old friends

    In today's paper..............



    The 'deplorables' spoke -- and sent a loud message
    • By WILLIAM F. TRAINER
    • 10 hrs ago

    Reactions to the presidential election ranged from elation to despair. Missed, however, was a startling event: a sizable segment of the population, hitherto quiet and predictable, sent a powerful message to their leaders, Democrat and Republican, liberal and conservative. They are hurting and they "aren't going to take it anymore."

    Liberals saw this as a "redneck revolt". Conservatives as "truth at last". Both were wrong. It was rather the cry of a broad based citizenry, including many knowledgeable citizens, who have seen their beliefs and values bulldozed aside, and their jobs permanently plowed under by economic or technical obsolescence. Some voted for Trump due to ideology. Others by holding their noses. All because the status quo was no longer tolerable.

    Many of their complaints are significant. One is huge. Significant ones include anger that their religious beliefs have become one liners from sneering Saturday Night Live hosts who categorize all religious believers as Bible-thumping Elmer Gantrys. In fact, many are folks who practice their beliefs quietly and proselytize only by "letting their lights shine before men."

    These voters also stand when our flag passes and believe citizens should be willing to risk their lives when their country calls them to arms. Both of these, however, are practices the elite opinion makers consider knee-jerk patriotism.

    These voters also resent being told under penalty of law that a guy who wakes up feeling feminine has the legal right to their daughters' locker rooms. They are angered when told saying "Merry Christmas" signifies insensitivity. Political correctness (PC) is one thing. Legally mandated PC is quite another.

    Their huge complaint, however, is that from lower to middle socioeconomic classes, they are every day seeing their lifelong professions erased by unstoppable economic or technical changes. In the past, jobs were lost to economics. Between 1973-2005, our garment industry lost 900,000 jobs, mostly to cheaper Chinese imports. Now, however, jobs are being lost to technology. These jobs are not going overseas. They are simply ceasing to exist.

    Evermore they are not unskilled labor jobs, but ones formerly thought to be skilled, lifetime positions. Computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines erased thousands of manufacturing jobs as one CNC did the functions of four machines previously manned by skilled machinists. Engineering jobs were lost to CAD (computer aided design) work stations. Book stores and chains like Borders Books, staffed by educated workers, were erased by Amazon's automated warehouses staffed by a few minimum wage clerks.

    On-line sales claimed jobs at electronics stores and bankrupted Circuit City. Movement of job losses up the skills chain continues. ATMs wiping out bank jobs. Mutual funds/ETFs eliminating brokers.

    Soon, financial advisors will start disappearing as Schwab's robot advisors gets proven and expanded. The future? Electric vehicles, less complex than gas powered ones, will erase many mechanics' jobs, parts manufacturers, and service stations. Self-driving vehicles will impact millions of jobs in trucking and transportation. In short, even voters with "secure" jobs are now looking over their shoulders as the job reaper gets closer and threatens their hold on the good life.

    And no one seems to care. The ruling establishment refused to address this huge job obsolescence issue in the last election by distracting voters with jobs moving overseas. No one, however, mentioned the jobs foreign firms brought to the U.S. such as the 17 foreign auto plants that have created over 200,000 imported jobs. These, however, cannot offset losses to technical obsolescence.


    Voters saw this and saw that many candidates would continue to ignore their values and cultural concerns, and job losses would continue. They saw their world splitting. One part like themselves whose livelihoods have gone or may shortly go, perhaps forever. The other those with enough assets to be independent of the job market.

    Enter Trump, a very highly flawed candidate, but one who might, just might, break the logjam that no one else even admitted exists. Hillary, with her $250,00 Wall Street speeches, clearly would not, especially when she summed up her attitude toward voters whose values, culture, and jobs were being destroyed by defining them as "deplorable".

    And so, on Nov. 8, Hillary's "deplorables" spoke.

    Totally Rational Hillary Supporters Protest GOP Electors with Nazi and Russia Signs

    Jim Hoft Dec 19th, 2016 1:02 pm 85 Comments

    These people are insane.
    Hillary supporters flocked to state capitols today hoping their Nazi signs would sway GOP electors to switch their votes to Hillary.

    In Madison, Wisconsin they held Sieg Heil signs.

    GOP Elector BLAMES HILLARY for Death Threats, Harassment of Republican Electors (Video)

    Jim Hoft Dec 19th, 2016 1:25 pm 75 Comments

    [​IMG]

    Michigan Republican elector Michael Banerian told Maria Bartiromo on FOX Business Network today that Hillary Clinton is to blame for the death threats against the GOP representatives.

    Michael Banerian: Hillary Clinton not just called Trump and Republican supporters deplorable but she said we were irredeemably so. She said the enemy she was most proud of was Republicans so when you talk like that she not only demonized Republicans she dehumanized us. And in doing that enabled these people as you said to think that it is somehow its OK to send death threats and aggressive messages to get us to change our votes.

    My personal opinion is that liberals (not the classic liberals, but today's progressive wussies) are the product of single-parent homes where mom is the only influence and dad is absent (or deceased or dysfunctional). The women aren't shown what a real man is and grow up looking for that male attention anywhere they can get it, and the men aren't shown what a real man is...and are instead raised by a caring/nurturing mom without discipline or toughness.

    That's why there are so many "men" today who are freaking pussies. They were raised by, and in many cases, disrespected their mom and got what they wanted.

    Yes. Don't be stupid and enforce rules because of "tradition." Tradition is despicable shit. People who worship "tradition" are also worthless shit. People should think.

    Astute observation and correct. Also I would add that the new emancipated woman, who doesn't want a man because she is smarter is raising boy's to be girls and both as sissies.

    My daughter used to rag at her husband constantly trying to make him appear ignorant. He really was a decent guy. Had three kids from a former marriage (ex wife died from cancer young) and daughter always undermined him in how they should be raised. He left with the kids one day with the divorce papers on the kitchen table saying "have a nice life". I still speak with him, more often than I do with my daughter because she is so much smarter than me because I haven't lived HER life. Her mother and I divorced and raised her, as I couldn't do it because I was always gone out of the country. Wish I could reach out, I've tried, but I ain't begging to get along with such nastiness. She is closing on-to 50 in a couple years, and sure will be lonesome.

    Now that's funny! Hitlery supporters going to"work".


    It’s a Cult=> Hillary Supporters Blame Racism, Russia for Her Loss

    Jim Hoft Dec 19th, 2016 12:36 pm 158 Comments

    De-Nile is not just a river in Africa.

    Clinton supporters are blaming Hillary’s epic loss on racism and Russia.

    [​IMG]
    Of course it was.
    Run with that, Democrats!

    It wasn’t because Democrats screwed the working class, doubled health care premiums, transferred jobs to Asia, doubled the national debt, and promised to kill all coal jobs…
    It’s because of RUSSIA… and RACISM!

    Hillary supporters said they cried and had a hard time going to work:



    CNN reported:

    Four weeks away from Donald Trump’s inauguration, Hillary Clinton supporters continue to debate why their candidate lost the presidential election.

    “I think it was racism that allowed Donald Trump to win,” Carol Evans said. “I’m not saying that everybody that voted for Donald Trump is a racist … but I do believe that they allowed racism to move into the White House. Let’s say that racism reacted against an Obama presidency, and that racism won.”

    Evans was part of a panel of Clinton supporters who sat down with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota in an interview that aired Monday on “New Day.” They offered a list of reasons for Trump’s victory and acknowledged that to move forward, they need to make an effort to understand those people who cast their vote

    OOPS! Liberal NY Gov Booked 200 Hotel Rooms For Inauguration Because He Thought Hillary Would Win

    [​IMG]

    Liberals are losing their minds, and their money.

    Uptight liberals like New York Governor Andrew Cuomo were so convinced Hillary Clinton would beat President-Elect Donald Trump in the election that he booked hundreds of hotel rooms that he’s now having to sell off to Trump supporters. awinner.gif

    PJ Media reports:

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo booked 200 hotel rooms for the 2017 presidential inauguration, Page Six’s Richard Johnson reported Sunday.

    Cuomo grabbed so many rooms for family, friends, and supporters — aiming to celebrate Hillary Clinton’s presidential inauguration and lay the groundwork for his own future bid for the presidency.

    “A little overconfident,” one unnamed Republican quipped. Indeed, the entire Clinton campaign was overconfident, and that arguably led to their defeat. Rather than shoring up key states like Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, her campaign targeted unlikely states like Arizona and Texas. President-elect Donald Trump out-flanked her, and she allowed him to win the presidency.

    When Trump won, Cuomo was surprised and taken unawares. Desperate to rid himself of the 200 hotel rooms, he told a staffer to call Ed Cox, chairman of New York’s Republican Party, to offer him the giant block of hotel rooms at the Loews Madison in Washington, D.C.

    What an idiot. These libtards are so unjustifiably arrogant it's nearly impossible to restrain the laughter when they fall on their faces. lol

    Cuomo should have stopped off in flyover country for even a few minutes at some point before he dumped a wad on hotel rooms because the batshit loony tards over at huffpo told him billary was a 9x% favorite to win. Maybe turn off the CNN fake news for a few minutes and check in on RT for some objectivity before making such decisions.

    Democrat Media Fail: Only 29% of Americans Convinced Russia Was Behind Election-Year DNC Hacks

    Jim Hoft Dec 20th, 2016 10:45 pm 81 Comments

    Despite constant media headlines only 29% of Americans believe Russia was behind the election-year DNC hacks.


    [​IMG]

    The Daily Mail reported:

    Only 29 per cent of Americans are convinced ‘with near certainty’ that Russia was behind a series of election-year computer hacks that left Hillary Clinton playing permanent defense in the months leading up to the Nov. 8 election.

    That number includes fully half of Democrats surveyed – but just 14 per cent of Republicans.

    A Morning Consult poll released Tuesday also found that 46 per cent agree that Americans ‘cannot be sure about who is primarily responsible.’ Another 25 per cent either don’t know or have no opinion.

    SHOCKER: Just 3 in 10 Americans believe Russia was behind election-year political hacking .

    EDIT BY IRONS: Hmmmm. Same percentage that is on antidepressants and/or parenting drugs.
