this country after years of decline and fall. Indeed, 45 minutes from the end of Obama's presidency the 45th President, with Melania at his side, graciously escorted the Obamas to "Marine One" where it lifted off and left DC at 12:45. Astonishing!
Moreover, in 2004, during that year's campaign when George Bush won a second term, Donald Trump turned 58 years old. Oddly the 2016 presidential race, won by Trump, was the 58th* in our history. This, it seems, is another sign that Trump, like George Bush, will be a two term president. *Trump Tower, Trump's campaign headquarters where he planned his victory, has 58 floors (see).
Moreover, Donald Trump's father Fred (b. 10-11-1905) was born during the second term of Teddy Roosevelt's presidency (see)*. TR like his younger cousin Franklin was a New Yorker.
Furthermore, Fred Trump married Mary Anne MacLeod (Donald's mother) in 1936. That was the year FDR won reelection to a second term.
Amazingly in 1999 when Fred Trump died it was at his home in New Hyde Park, New York. New Hyde Park was FDR's birthplace, and 1999 was Bill Clinton's second term.
It's fascinating to note that it was during Bill Clinton's second term that he appointed Trump's older sister Maryanne to the US Court of Appeals. Maryanne was born in 1937, the first year of FDR's second term (see).
Would Bill Clinton stand next to a sign that read “Make America Sick Again”?
John Nichols at The Nation, “It's absurd to claim that [Trump's] administration and this Congress enjoy enthusiastic popular support. They don’t.”
The Pew Research poll that came out December 9th had Trump's approval rating as President-elect at a mere 41%, with 55% disapproving. In the Media Matters' article Eric Boehlert gleefully points out that Trump's rating compared to Obama's (72%), Bush II's (50%) , Clinton's (62%) and Bush I's (65%) is historically low for an incoming president. The implication is that pre-inaugural Donald is already a failure foreshadowing an awful presidency worse than George Bush's.
But Pew is not the only post-election poll on Trump. The latest Bloomberg national poll for December 16th tells a different and more convincing tale (more in sync with the soaring historic Dow* and consumer confidence surge). For it has Trump's approval rating 9 points higher than Pew at 50%-up from 33% in August. That's a whopping 17 point shift in less than five months (see); an amazing, historic turnaround.
*If the Fed hadn't raised interest rates the Dow would now be at 20,000.
There's been a massive transfer of wealth from the 99% to the top 1%. We've got to bring that money back to working families.
An act to provide for the relocation of the United States Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and for other purposes.
November 8, 1995.
|Statutes at Large|
109 Stat. 398
You will notice Sir that the Jerusalem Embassy Act passed by the 104th Congress in 1995 is PUBLIC LAW 104-45, ending in your president's number. And it appears that by an Act of Providence 104-45 became law on the auspicious date of NOVEMBER 8TH-21 years to the very day of you becoming 45th President of the United States. This can't be accidental.
Moreover, and just as fascinating, on the very day that 104-45 became law you Sir were exactly 18,045 days old-that's the 45th number of the 18,000 series. This too can't be accidental.
Obama's got Israel's back.
Now that the anti-Trump derangement nuts failed to reverse the outcome of the 2016 election (with the Jillary Recount and great Electoral College revolt backfiring and making Trump's victory slightly stronger) let's take a comprehensive look at Trump's triumph which on balance was a landslide.
Indeed, the most feared and hated President-elect ever by the political Left won 62.9 million votes; this set a record for a Republican candidate by just under 1 million votes*. No mean feat considering the extent, scope and power of the maligning bipartisan forces aligned against him. Indeed, Trump's gravity defying miraculous win against staggering odds (which looks like the work of Providence) was the greatest upset political victory since certain to lose, underdog Harry Truman beat Thomas Dewey 68 years ago.
*Trump beat Bush's record of just over 62 million votes set in 2004 by approximately 900,000 votes (see).
But Trump's victory was more historic and greater than Truman's. For Truman had the advantage of being President, victoriously ending the worst war in human history and continuing the legacy of the immensely popular and revered FDR. But Trump never held elected office or ran in a political campaign; what he did have however was a flamboyant and super successful business and reality TV show career, great political instincts, untiring energy, an unbreakable iron will, effective communication skills, and the gift of a weak, unlikable, corrupt, low energy opponent who couldn't keep pace with him. And that combination of gifts and circumstances were enough to make Trump the third President-elect born during the Truman era; and the 7th to come from New York State after FDR.
In the end Trump pulled off a decisive electoral victory and staggering geographical sweep; and that created a
In CA they give drivers licenses to illegals; and they have motor voter registration. It's not particularly controversial to say they voted en masse.
Indeed, where was Biden's and Obama's outrage and alarm two years ago over this act of war and espionage targeting the White House? Where was Klugman, the Times and the rest of the watchdog media? If it was Bush's White House that was hacked the media would have rightly raised hell over it turning it into a major cyber security scandal to embarrass him. But because Obama's White House was the victim the story went underreported to avoid making him look weak and incompetent. And what were the consequences? As Adam Schiff said: "It invited the Russians to meddle some more believing they could do so with impunity."
In other words, if what Klugman and other Trump haters are alleging is the truth, that Russia hacked DNC emails to hurt Hillary and help Trump, the blame falls mostly on Obama. PERIOD!
And how can Obama with a straight face fault Russia for allegedly interfering with our election when he's done that himself on occasion? And to allies no less? In 2014 Obama tried to sway the Israeli election against Bibi Netanyahu with well-funded (by US tax dollars) anti-Bibi operatives in Israel working to advance Isaac Herzog's Zionist Union Party to victory (see).
And more recently the meddling mendacious moron publicly threatened the British people with economic consequences if they dared vote to leave the European Union. It doesn't get anymore hypocritical than this.
And then there's the issue of US cyber attacks and spying on allies and friends (like the European Union and Germany) that went on under Obama's nose, and would have continued (or may still be going on) had Eric Snowden not blown the whistle. What goes around comes around.
Can anyone produce a single voter who was swayed by Wikileaks (and/or James Comey) to vote for Donald Trump? Just one?
Indeed, if in the unlikely event the massive DNC/Podesta Wikileaks dump swayed the election in Trump's favor (making Julian Assange the culprit not Russia) the blame nonetheless falls squarely on Obama's incompetence in protecting our country. Perhaps if more of his focus had been on strengthening cyber security, not on the imaginary, doomsday "national and global security threat" of [so-called] man-made global warming, Hillary might be President-elect.
But in truth, the only election this year that was certainly, absolutely badly "tainted" was the DNC rigging the democrat primaries for Hillary against Bernie. Before the primary voting began 400 superdelegates were already pledged to Hillary. And the head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz (a Clinton surrogate) pressured another 300 superdels to back Hillary. Hillary didn't win her party's nomination by democratic means and stole the election from Bernie (as hers was stolen by Obama in 2008). What is Hillary's actual theft compared to Wikileaks or James Comey allegedly and unprovably winning the election for Trump?
We'll never know for sure what the outcome of a Trump-Sanders race would have been. But every major poll showed Sanders topping Trump by higher points than Hillary. And surely anti-globalist, populist Bernie with his message of economic nationalism for the forgotten working man would have done better than Hillary in the Rust Belt states where she lost the race.
However, in reality, what gave Donald Trump his landslide electoral victory (he won the popular vote in 60% of the states) was his blazing, defiant, outlandish, indefatigable WILL TO POWER-which weak, feckless, low energy Hillary couldn't match. I predicted last year that Hillary wouldn't keep pace with Trump if both were the nominees; and that's what happened. From August 1st to November 7th Trump held approximately 100 large rallies (up to four per day) to Hillary's less than 50 (see); that was her limit beyond which could have proved perilous to her health (she complained to NBC she found campaigning terribly exhausting).
Assange, Russia and Comey be damned! In the end it was force of nature, Herculean Trump's great energy, stamina and strength that moved mountains; that impressed the Republican and Independent electorate, swept them into an anti-establishment frenzy and propelled him to victory-sending millions of Dems into despair.
And here we are five weeks after election day with snowflake leftist Bill DeBlasio (emblematic of the mental breakdown of the left) offering therapy to city workers suffering from distress. Proving conclusively that liberalism is a mental disorder, and that he has no future as mayor; as four successful Trump years will send him to a psych ward stark raving mad.
How can we save clean, green, messianic Warmunism (humanity's last best hope for climate justice and peace) from the fascist, dirty, aggressive, big oil energy regime of Trump, Pruitt and Tillerson? What needs to be done to ensure its survival so it can continue its fight for the fate of the Earth, and a clean energy future?
Put it on the

Was the survival of their movement the topic of discussion at Trump's surprise meetings with these two great dedicated greenies?
(hat tip Sue2)
did Trump convince them he was friendly to their cause? But for political reasons is hiding it? And that his $trillion plans for massively repairing America's crumbling infrastructure, and building a border security wall, are scientifically valid DECARBONIZATION PROJECTS using millions of tons of concrete to suck billions of tons of CO2 from the atmosphere?
If that were so Gore wouldn't have said afterwards that he found his meeting with Trump "productive" and "extremely interesting."
Then said to be continued which means he made no headway
Gore said the purpose of the meeting (set up by Trump not requested by Gore) was a "sincere search for common ground." If Trump had no intention of making peace with Wamunists why would he meet with two of their best known leaders?
Trump did not call him in to speak to him his daughter did and Gore made it a point to stop by Trumps office...Just tried to make it seem like Trump called him in
Do you think Ivanka set up the meeting in defiance of her dad? Or that she's a whacko greenie?

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OBAMA AND THE RED CHINESE?
They're better at being communists.
Why should he worry? The Dalai knows he has an ally in Donald Trump, and won’t have to come into the White House by the kitchen entrance anymore.
In the center column between the pictures of JFK and LBJ it reads:
Figure in a Pro-Castro Group is Charged
"Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro's legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights. While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve.
Though the tragedies, deaths and pain caused by Fidel Castro cannot be erased, our administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey toward prosperity and liberty. I join the many Cuban-Americans who supported me so greatly in the presidential campaign, including the Brigade 2506 Veterans Association that endorsed me, with the hope of one day soon seeing a free Cuba."
Donald Trump's earthquake election on the 9th day of November "11/9" is not the worst, most devastating 9/11 event since the collapse of the Twin Towers into a hellish pile of destruction and death. It is not the end of the world all over again as many hysterical, psyched out loons believe on the nauseating, violent, Trump hating left.
Absolutely to the contrary! Just as the numbers 1-1-9 are 9-1-1 reverse so is the odds defying historic day of Trump's astonishing victory on 11/9 the infamous, deadly, horrific day of 9/11 REVERSE. Conflating the two dates like terrified, lunatic doomsday leftists are doing (and jubilant, radical anti-American Moslems) is just plain insane. Truth is Donald Trump becoming the 19th Republican to be President on 11/9 is logically, mathematically and symbolically the exact polar opposite to Osama bin Laden and the colossal destruction caused by his 19 jihadis on 9/11. Just compare what al Qaida did on 9/11 and in its history leading up it to Trump's history as a billionaire real estate developer. It's sobering. On 9/11 al-Qaida destroyed the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, two of the world's great skyscrapers, killing 3000 Americans at a cost of trillions; while prior to 11/9 Donald Trump built some of the world's great, tallest and most beautiful skyscrapers enriching and benefiting communities and cities across this land.
Moveover, where on 9/11 al-Qaida also attacked the Pentagon in Washington DC killing 123, within earshot of that building Trump transformed the old post office pavilion into a great, opulent, luxury hotel providing jobs for hundreds. In short, al-Qaida are great destroyers, Trump's a great creator. There's no comparison.
In other words,
11/9 IS 9/11 REVERSE, STUPID!
And joining the freaked out chorus of delusional, frightened, doomsday Trump haters are (wouldn't you know it) ISIS, al-Qaida and violent, bloodthirsty jihadists everywhere. But unlike the terrified, mentally ill left these Moslems from hell are ecstatic about this week's election event. For after praying to Allah and consulting their Korans they've concluded that 11/9 is a blessing and God send; that it's a certain sign of divine intervention; that what al-Qaida began on 9/11, the defeat, downfall and destruction of the US, will be completed by Trump in the years ahead.
11/9 for them is an infallible sign that President Trump, whether he knows it or not, is an agent of Allah's imperial designs; that Allah is raising Trump to the presidency to bring down this country; to accomplish for Islam what jihadis tried and failed to do since 9/11. But here too the very opposite is true. What 11/9 is to 9/11 numerically (its opposite) Trump is to the horde of deadly Islamic jihadists. Just as 9/11 means to them a great jihadist victory then 11/9 (9/11 reversed) is symbolic of COUNTER-JIHAD. Indeed, Trump's threat to "bomb the hell out of 'em" should be taken seriously. For Trump (who honors Pershing, Patton and McArthur) "there's no substitute for victory." Unlike Obama and his world ending global warming fantasies Trump will give the defeat of jihad topmost priority. And as Trump has triumphed over every seeming insurmountable obstacle to win the presidency so will he use his great strength, stamina and energy to crush our jihadist enemies and turn 9/11 into a day they will greatly regret.
Every negative prediction by anti-Trumpers on the right and left-that he'd not be the GOP nominee, that the gropper tape would finish him and he'd lose to lying crooked Hillary-have failed dismally. But learning nothing from these failures the left is at it again prophetically warning that Trump's presidency will be a 9/11-like catastrophe that's beyond imagining. But "11/9," the date of Trump's election victory, suggests they have it wrong again; and after eight exciting, inventive, productive years of a glorious Trump presidency the only 9/11 they will see is the demise of their political creed. And that will be Trump's greatest victory.
SOME OF MY MANY UNCANNY PREDICTIONS OF DONALD TRUMP'S UNLIKELY ELECTION VICTORY AND HILLARY CLINTON'S UNLIKELY DEFEAT
THE FDR-NEW YORK FACTOR
RENO IS NARROWLY DEFEATED IN GOVERNOR'S PRIMARY RACE
Late in the 11th hour of the 2016 presidential race, just 11 days from Election Day, and on the 11th anniversary of Scooter Libby's indictment in the Valerie Plame affair (10-28-05), FBI Director James Comey sent a blockbuster letter to Congress that he was reopening the criminal probe into Hillary Clinton's private email server. His reason was a new, troubling mega-cache of possibly thousands of Clinton-related emails (or a smoking gun*) found on text sexting perv Anthony Weiner's laptop.
*Could be, as some surmise, that the FBI did find a smoking gun as they were looking through Weiner's emails.
Jim Comey once said: "I don't care about politics. I don't care about expediency. I don't care about friendship. I care about doing the right thing."
What is truly astonishing and seemingly ominous for Hillary is the "coincidence" of Comey sending this letter on the anniversary of Scooter Libby's indictment for obstruction of justice, perjury and other crimes in the Plame case. For as MSNBC's David Corn wrote (see), it was none other than then Acting Attorney General James Comey (of the Bush administration) who TRIGGERED the four year investigation into the criminal leak that outed Valerie Plame-a covert CIA agent (see).
That Comey is a pro-Trump partisan Republican hack in violation of the Hatch Act trying to influence the outcome of the election is utter nonsense-denied even by the White House. Indeed, what Comey did in Plamegate, and opposing central aspects Bush's domestic surveillance program, established his reputation for being apolitical, and was key to Obama's decision to make him FBI chief.
