Watching the national elite media since the election has been an interesting experience. Initially they were in shock. To the vast number of us who don’t have a very high opinion of the “elitist” media, it was just funny. Some of them were inconsolable. Some were in or near tears. All seemed to be aghast by the Trump win.  It almost seemed like the death of a loved one. First there is the disbelief, then the slow, begrudging acceptance of the reality, all complete with a very real sadness.

The reason for their disbelief is simple. They live and travel in a world of liberal make believe. They trod the cold sidewalks of major cities where fresh air never makes an appearance. They attend cocktail parties with like thinking people. They drink expensive coffee sitting beside others just like them. They think the world ends at their city limits and starts again at the California border. They see the rest of America as worthless “fly over” country where people are uneducated and cling to their guns and religions. Because of their Ivy League educations, they believe they know what is best for the rest of the country. How is it possible that this basketful of deplorables rose up and had their voices heard?

Now just this once I am going to go against my nature and give the liberals some advice. Something that may help in their dealings with this new reality. You know, the new reality of returning to the rule of law. The idea of personal responsibility. Respect for authority. Reverence for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Overall a return to traditional America.

Liberals be aware. One of the main reasons the Republicans won is because America is tired of cry babies and whiners. America is fed up with political correctness. America believes laws are made by the Congress and not an empirical President.

Regarding the media, you have long since lost your credibility. The job of the press is to learn the facts and report them, not to make changes to suit an agenda; and you have failed in your mission.

You are now telling the Republicans that they must “reach across the aisle.” You mean like the way the Democrats reached across the aisle before they stuffed Obamacare down our throats? Without a single Republican vote? Is that your definition of “reach across?” You may remember a little comment made by Barack Obama himself, “Elections have consequences.” Yes, yes they do. So then any reaching across must necessarily be on the part of the losing Democrats. And when they reach across that aisle, they better have something in their hands besides more of the same regulation and bureaucracy they have peddled in the past. The American voters have rejected that nonsense with this election.

In just a few weeks our new Sheriff and his posse will take over. Most of America is excited by the prospect. I am expecting to see the Justice Department return to enforcing law. I am expecting the IRS to get back to work on legitimate audits and tax processing. It is my fervent hope that prosecutions are in the works for those who violated the law and took liberties with their positions, regardless of what those positions were. Most of us will be thrilled with a renewed and rearmed military and our position in the world will be made clearer to all our adversaries. Like most of you I am waiting to see who will make up the Supreme Court. The very future of this country depends on the right choices.

This final word to the Democrats. If you try to hamper this Administration and try to deny this President the changes the American people have voted for, you will face yet another crashing defeat in the next election as well as in 2020. Pay heed to what the voters have said.

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I pause to consider what I am most thankful for. The list is long but I will try to narrow it down a bit.

First and foremost, of course, is my family. The people I love and who love me. We know our faults and we love each other anyway. We know and appreciate our strengths and it only serves to make our love stronger. For them I am truly thankful. I am also thankful for good health as well as good medicine to keep us healthy.

Next I am thankful for the election results. It’s not that I am now or ever was a big fan of Donald Trump, it is that I could never imagine Hillary Clinton as President of this great country. In my mind and as I have written on many occasions, she is a crook, a liar, and at the very least extremely careless with the secrets that help keep our country safe. It is my hope that now that the election is over, this new Administration will proceed with full criminal investigations of the Clintons and will prosecute to the full extent of the law. Maybe a nice trailer park in Arkansas might be a good future home for them when they get out of jail.

As an American, I am thankful for all the freedoms that I have. The First Amendment to the Constitution gives me freedom of speech. I regularly use that freedom to express my opinion in this blog as well as in newspapers. There are indeed few places in this world where such freedom exists. Then there is the Second Amendment. I have the freedom to arm myself for whatever reason I choose. It might be to go hunting or it might be just for target shooting. It may also well be for self-protection not only from bandits and crooks, but also as the Founders intended, for protection from my own government.

I appreciate the fact that we regularly have elections to select our representatives; and that I live in a country where laws are passed not by Presidential edict, as the outgoing President could never seem to get the hang of, but by the people’s representatives, the Congress.

And speaking of law, I am thankful that we are a law and order society. We have enacted laws and we expect them to be obeyed. We further expect that when any of those laws are violated, that punishment will be swift and sure.

I am thankful for our military. For the people who have the patriotism and the courage to enter the service to protect us from the evils in this world. I believe this outgoing Administration has been disrespectful of the military by their treatment of active duty soldiers and sailors as well as the treatment of our veterans. I trust and hope that President Trump will do as he has promised and fix the mess that the outgoing President has left us with.

And finally, I am thankful for you, the readers of my blog and columns. For many years you have given me the opportunity to vent and scream. You have been tolerant and patient even when you disagreed with me. You have made my life fuller by allowing me to come into your minds and thoughts every week. For this opportunity I am truly grateful. I plan to continue writing as long as I am able. I am hopeful that, going forward with the Trump Administration, I will have more to compliment than to criticize. Thank you for being with me as we go forward together.

Well, the election is over. My candidate didn’t win. My first choice was Huckabee and my second choice was Rubio, so I lost on both accounts. And, sadly, here I sit with no therapy dog, no hot chocolate, and no safe space where I can go and cry my eyes out. I guess the next best thing is to go out and try to destroy my community. Maybe I can burn up some cars or burn down independent businesses that are only trying to serve my needs. Maybe I’ll throw burning molotov cocktails at the police. Since I am the smartest person in the room, I’ll wear a mask so they will never know who I am. I am going to protest this election until they do it over and make my candidate the winner.

You no doubt have been hearing all this nonsense going on. Spoiled children who think, since their candidate didn’t win, they have the right to demand a do over. It seems that the liberals’ idea of freedom is only if things turn out the way they want.  Some colleges are actually giving their students a few days off from classes to mourn and deal with their hurt feelings.

Well listen up young anarchists. One of the main reasons Hillary and the Democrats lost is because of spoiled children like you. The traditional Americans who go to work every day just to pay for your overpriced colleges and the military who serve all over the world putting themselves in harm’s way so you can have a crying room are fed up with your childishness. They are fed up with “political correctness.” If you are offended, deal with it. Who in this world ever told you that you could go through life and never be offended. You probably never heard of her, but Eleanor Roosevelt once said that no one can offend you without your permission.

I have a small suggestion for this new administration. Re-institute the military draft. Give young eighteen year olds something to think about besides themselves. I remember when I was eighteen. I was on guard duty in a desolate forest in Germany in the middle of the night. The Soviet Union had given us a timetable to be out of Germany and we weren’t going to leave. So, there I stood quite literally scared to death trying to be brave and waiting for the hoards from the USSR to attack. I’ll tell you this, I became a man. I quickly came to understand what responsibility was.

We are constantly being told that these young people are our future. They will only be our future if they grow up and learn what it means to be an American.   

There will be no do over. In four years Trump will probably run again and unless I miss my guess, if you are offended by this election, you will certainly be upset by the next one. America is tired of the leftist direction of the past eight years. America is tired of “big brother” knowing what is best in everything. America is tired of having to remind individuals of the need to just look in their underwear to determine which restroom to go into. America is tired of having their road signs in five languages so no one has to learn English to drive on our roads.

America is yearning to return to her traditional ways.

So, young disillusioned children and anarchists, there are no participation trophies in a Presidential election. There are only winners and losers. Go home. Read the Constitution. Study history. Learn what it means to be an American. Pray this government doesn’t take my suggestion and start drafting you. You might then have to grow up.

It is my great pleasure to write this column today. When I went to bed last night, I didn’t know what to expect. No, I didn’t stay up for the results although I did get up at 3:30 this morning to check it out. To say I am relieved is an understatement. America did herself proud and rejected the most corrupt person ever to try to win the Presidency.

Do you remember back when the news was all about O. J. Simpson? The media just couldn’t seem to get enough of O. J. Well, his criminality finally caught up with him and he is now in prison for what should be the rest of his life. When he was deposited into his cage, I told myself that I never wanted to hear the name of O. J. Simpson again. I now feel the same way about Hillary Clinton. Whether she spends her remaining days in a cage is yet to be determined, but it is my hope that I never hear her name spoken again. In my mind she is a conniving, self-centered, opportunist criminal who should in fact be in prison. With the Republicans now in total command, justice should prevail and James Comey can do his job without interference.

I’m also reminded today of all the Hollywood elitists who have promised to move out of this country with Trump in the White House. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on your way out. All you need is to find another country who will put up with your whiny nonsense. Sadly, this promise has been made before and they all seem to forget it when faced with reality. Personally I wouldn’t miss a single one of them. They are all ungrateful slobs with questionable talent who would have great difficulty feeding themselves left to their own devices.

So now the real excitement begins. I am looking forward to the new Cabinet. I would love to see Rudy Giuliani as Attorney General. Or maybe Chris Christie. Newt Gingrich as Secretary of State. Ben Carson as Health Education and Welfare. How about Mike Huckabee as Chief of Staff? There is just so much untapped talent available to Trump and I believe he will choose wisely.

He has a Republican Senate and House. The people have spoken. There will be no excuses. Here’s what we want.  Get rid of all the illegal Presidential edicts Obama loved to issue because he couldn’t get the Congress to go along with him. Require the Border Patrol to enforce the law. No more catch and release. Require employers to e-verify all Social Security numbers before anyone is hired. Support the police and the military. Fix the VA. No more excuses. It is a mess. Just fix it. Get rid of Obamacare and replace it with an intelligent program that uses the best of this country instead of trying to turn our healthcare into a public utility.

Re-negotiate all these Mickey Mouse treaties that have been forced down the throats of the American people. In all cases America first.

Nominate Justices for the courts who can both read and understand the Constitution of the United States and who have respect for what our Founders had in mind.

Take a good hard look at all the duplicity in our government and “drain the swamp.”

Trump promised to make America great again. I, for one, plan to hold him to that promise. I expect him to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. To me, that is job one. For me and for all Americans the future just got a great deal brighter.

Okay, here’s what we know. Hillary Clinton set up a private server to conduct the business of the State Department while she was Secretary of State. She used that server to send and receive classified emails. She alleged this was done for her convenience. She sent and received these emails to several people during this period. Among the people on her email list were Huma Abedin, Sidney Blumenthal, and probably Barack Obama. She lied to the American people about the server and the emails. When the Congress learned of the server they subpoenaed the emails. Hillary then destroyed the emails, approximately thirty thousand of them, and attempted to destroy several Blackberries and laptops to get rid of the evidence. During this period, the FBI was involved in an investigation of this whole affair. At about the same time, Bill Clinton, the husband of the target of the investigation, had a private thirty-nine minute meeting with Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. That meeting was a discussion of golf and grandchildren they reported. The Congress then subpoenaed several members of Hillary’s private cadre to gain information. They all pleaded for protection from prosecution under the fifth amendment. Many of these same people were called before the FBI for questioning where it is reported they couldn’t remember any of the facts in the case. At the conclusion of the investigation FBI Director, James Comey, held a news conference and stated that while there was tremendous evidence of criminal wrongdoing on the part of Hillary Clinton, they would not recommend prosecution.  

Did you get all of that? Now let’s look at what we suspect. Hillary set up this private server to conduct the business of the Clinton Foundation as well as arranging for bribes and pay-for-play with private businesses and foreign governments. She believes today, as she has always believed, that she is above the law and can do whatever she wants even though she signed a document at the State Dept. swearing she would never be involved with the mess she has gotten herself into. She knowingly was in contempt of Congress when she directed her minions to destroy evidence of her criminal activity. They all pleaded the fifth to try and stay out of jail. Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch not to discuss golf or grandchildren but instead to make a deal with Lynch to keep Hillary out of jail by probably promising her a continuation of her job as AG. When Hillary’s co-conspirators were called before the FBI, they did as they were advised by Hillary’s lawyer to “not remember” any of the details. At this point I am confident that Comey also did what he was told when he didn’t recommend prosecution of Hillary. Just last week a new batch of emails was discovered on the laptop of renowned and disgraced former Congressman and sexual pervert, Anthony Weiner, husband of Huma Abedin, Hillary’s closet personal advisor. There are literally thousands of emails on his laptop. Probably many of the missing emails from Hillary’s server. This discovery is so damaging to Hillary that Comey had no choice but to reveal it and to deal with the fallout of the release of the information.

So, what’s next? We have an election in a week. There is a far out chance that Hillary will be elected. There are still enough idiots in this country who refuse to see the facts before them. Whether she wins the election or not, she will be indicted. The Congress will  have no choice but to impeach her if she happens to win the election. It is against the law to hold Federal office if you are under indictment for espionage. She will then be the second Clinton to be impeached. She may well be sent to Federal Prison. Then maybe we will finally be rid of the Clintons for good in this country. I, for one, have had a belly full of Clinton and hope never to hear the name again.
