As I've previously written, on the 16th day of June 2015 (16 days from the publication of Ann Coulter's book "Adios, America" on illegal immigration, and 16 days before an illegal alien killed Kate Steinle in San Francisco) Donald Trump (16 months from Election Day 2016) announced his run for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave-making illegal immigration and border security the focus of his campaign (see and see).

*Today, July 18th, the start of the RNC when Donald Trump will be nominated the Republican presidential nominee, is 114 days to Election Day or 16 weeks (see).

I also wrote (see) that the important date of April 26th*, when Trump won five northeastern primary states virtually making him the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, fell on the 316th day of his campaign-which oddly was the 116th day or 16th week of the year (see). Moreover, as I  noted, not only was April 26th the 316th day of Trump's historic campaign it was also auspiciously its 45th week-the number of the next President.
* April 26th was  Melania Trump's 46th birthday (see)  .
 The GOP has joined the Hair Club For Real Men.
But it wasn't until the following week with Trump's victory in Indiana (when Cruz and Kasich called it quits) that Trump effectively secured the nomination as announced by Reince Priebus (see). Oddly, Indiana (which ranks 16th in population) was the 19th state to join the Union doing so in 1816, the 16th year of the 19th century. By the way, the next Republican to live in the White House will be the 19th in American history (see).
Is Trump to Clinton what Obama was too McCain eight years ago? The "Hope & Change" candidate? The hope he can stop and reverse Obama's change?
Needless to say the prospering state of Indiana (a conservative economic model for the nation) was politically propitious for Trump; and now auspiciously he's picked its very successful governor Mike Pence as his running mate. Amazingly, on Friday when Trump announced his selection of Pence it was 116 days or 16 weeks to Election Day (see). And when on Saturday at the Hilton Trump and Pence* appeared together publicly for the first time it was the 16th day of July.
*It's also interesting to note that Governor Pence was born on a Sunday and Donald Trump on a Friday. Sunday and Friday are the 1st and 6th days of the week giving us the numbers 1 & 6 (see).
No one but God knows who the next President and VP will be. But could the above numeric patterns of 16s in this 16th year of the 21st century be a providential sign that conservative Republican Mike Pence will prove a big factor in Trump winning the presidency? We can only hope so. But there appear to be other signs suggesting that Pence will  prove to be a valuable asset for Trump in November. These are as follows:
What Trump and FDR have in common (besides being born and raised in New York) is their patriotic nationalism, indomitable strength and the immense drive to win.
Donald Trump is a native of New York a state that has produced 6 of our 44 presidents (see). This means that if elected in November Trump at age 70 would be the 7th New Yorker to be President following Franklin Roosevelt who was the 6th*. Now by chance or providence Mike Pence was born June 7, 1959 or the 6th month and 7th day of 1959 giving us the numbers 6 &7. Moreover, when Pence was born Donald Trump was in his 667th week on this earth (see)**.
*Oddly if Trump wins the presidency he will be sworn into office on the 70th year, 7th month and 7th day of his amazing life (see).
**When Trump began his candidacy on June 16, 2015 it was the 167th day of the year-the 67th number of the 100 series (see).
Furthermore, as I mentioned elsewhere, FDR was elected the 6th New York resident to be President on November 8, 1932. In other words, this November 8th* will be the 84th** anniversary of FDR's landslide victory over Herbert Hoover. And lastly, as the number 16 seems to be politically auspicious for Trump, he's now within striking distance of following FDR into the White House as the 7th President from New York, it just so happens that FDR was the 32nd President of the United States-32 is 16 doubled.
*On Election Day November 8th Donald Trump will be exactly 25,716 days old-a five digit number ending in 16. BTW, 8 is half 16 (see).
*84 years translates into 1008 months of calendar time (84x12=1008). 1008 is a multiple of 16 63 times.
And lastly, underscoring the significance of Indiana for Donald Trump as a possible sign of triumph in November was Hillary Clinton's loss of that state to Bernie Sanders (the populist Donald Trump of the Left) in an upset victory- which I wrote about HERE. Did underdog Bernie's defeat of Hillary in Indiana foreshadow underdog Donald being helped by Indiana's Mike Pence to defeat Hillary in November? As of today with the Baton Rouge and Dallas cop killings, the jihadist massacres in France and Orlando and the weakening of the economy (three straight quarters of GDP decline) things are looking brilliant for "the law and order," give-ISIS-hell, "make America great and safe again" presidential candidate and his terrific running mate.

Pence the Con is a gift for the Dems and will sink Trump and the Republican Party!  Here's why:

Pense's stand on some key issues

Abortion: As governor, Pence signed into law a sweeping bill banning abortion if a fetus has a "genetic abnormality" such as Down syndrome and holding doctors legally liable if they had knowingly performed such procedures. The law also required that aborted fetal tissue be buried or cremated. A federal judge blocked the law from going into effect.

The environment: Pence has frequently expressed skepticism about the reality of climate change and fought back against key environmental acts designed to curb carbon emissions. In 2014, he told NBC's Chuck Todd that he doesn't know if climate change "is a resolved issue in science today." He wrote a letter to President Obama in 2015 saying he wouldn't comply with new Environmental Protection Agency regulations for coal plants.

Guns: Pence has an "A" rating from the NRA, and while in Congress he regularly voted with the gun lobby. That included voting against an assault weapons ban — something Trump has mentioned supporting during this election.

Immigration: In a December tweet, Pence called Trump's ban on Muslims entering the United States "offensive and unconstitutional." He has, though, supported strict immigration measures and opposed the resettlement of Syrian refugees in Indiana.

LGBT rights: Pence helped pass one of the nation's first "religious freedom" laws that protected people and businesses who wanted to refuse service to LGBT people if they cited religious objections. After businesses pulled out of expansion plans into the state, Pence faced immense pressure to roll back the law, which he did. Trump has actually been fairly open when it comes to rights for gay and transgender people.

Trade: Pence has offered support for the Trans Pacific Partnership, which Trump has routinely attacked, going so far as to call it a "rape" of the country. Pence in 2014 said, "Trade means jobs, but trade also means security. The time has come for all of us to urge the swift adoption of the Trans Pacific Partnership."




Pence will sink Trump like GHW Bush sank Reagan: Bush opposed Reaganomics (ridiculing it as "voodoo economics"), was pro-Detente (thought Reagan's anti-communism extreme), voted for the Civil Rights Amendment which Reagan opposed. The American people chose Reagan over Carter and cared nothing about Bush's anti-Reagan positions, and Reagan's alleged racism, because he projected an image of strength promising to restore America's greatness at a time when we were in economic, military and geopolitical decline.

BTW, according to Pew Research of the top 14 national issues gun control ranks 5th, immigration 6th, race relations 10th, global trade 11th, environment (climate change) 12th, abortion 13th, and LBGT issues dead last in 14th place. The top four issues: the economy, terrorism, foreign policy and healthcare (Obamacare is hugely unpopular) favor Trump-Pence over Hillary and the Dems.



  1. Agreed Apollo. Apparently Pence was a great pick. All my GOP friends who were on the fence about Trump, are all on board the Trump train now. It amazes me how quickly this has changed!

    1. Pence had a great conservative radio program for years. “Rush on Decaf”. He speaks very well. No ummmms or uh uh uh.
      He also has friends in media

  2. Trump knows how to play the media. It’s been all about the campaign for a week and will continue this week with the convention. For a couple weeks it was his short list. Then it was Pence’s carnival interview. Then it was speculation on Pence but still others in the running. Then it was the Pence leak followed by a denial. Then it was (sadly) a delay for Nice. Then he tweeted his pick. Saturday it was the formal announcement and and now the convention. No one can deny he’s a showman and will be leading the lib msm around by their noses.

  3. None will admit Trump announced Friday because it was the last day for Pence to file papers to run for Governor. I guess they will do anything to keep this story going. Afterall, if they admit Trump won the election, what would they report on from now to November? Noticed the L.A. slimes poll had Trump slightly ahead 43/40 over the crooked witch. Winning 30% Hispanics. Hillary 51% Hispanics. Why is Trump slowly closing the Hispanic gap? ANSWER: His machismo. We Latins love it.

  4. I’m absolutely delighted and satisfied with the Mike Pence choice. He’s a great conservative, a fine-looking man, well-spoken….I could go on and on….but mostly, from a political point of view when analyzing the dynamics of presidential/vice-presidential tickets, he will bring “gravitas” to Mr. Trump….and Trump will imbue Pence with vibrancy and energy.

  5. Gingrich and Christie are now free to be unabashed and relentless pit bulls without pushback on the ticket.

  6. There is a sweet irony in Indiana being the supposed firewall for Cruz and now its governor is on the stage with Trump.


  7. Pence’s accomplishments

    !. State in the BLACK.

    2. Have AAA financial rating.

    3. He lowered taxes. Got rid of the inheritance tax.

    4. Added over 100,000 private sector jobss since took office.

    5. Is ranked #1 in the Midwest for doing business.

    6. Built 2 bridges and another in the works after only talks for over 50 years by others.

    7. Added to our highway system.

    8. Factories have expanded.

    9. Opposed No Child Left Behind.

    10. Opposed Wall Street Bail out.

    11. Against Embryonic Stem Cell research (not produced one single medical treatment).

    12. Advocated ending Birthright Citizenship.

    13. Co-Sponsored a Bill to declare English as official English.

    14. In Indiana implemented Health Savings Accounts.

    15 Reduced debt-by 11.6 Million & money debt.

    16. Unemployment Rate less than 5%.


  8. Apollo wins the prize for the most imaginative interpretation of the controversial Trump-Pence logo.I think you have to try really hard to see it as suggestive.

    1. ” I think you have to try really hard to see it as suggestive.”

      Possessing a junior high school level of maturity helps as well.

  9. As a former graphics worker for an investment bank, I can say this logo kind of sucks.

    But a logo isn’t going to decide the election.

    1. It does suck. I like the new one: Trumpence.

      Get your Trumpence worth! Vote Trumpence, Earn Thousands! Build the Wall for Trumpence!

    2. I don’t think it sucks It’s just interlocking letters, very traditional. Colleges have used this for over a century.

      It’s a given that somebody opposed to Trump is going to find something to go off about, no matter what he says or does. There are those who see sexual imagery in every Rorschach inkblot, which says more about the viewer than it does about the inkblot.
