Be Careful, Donald … Be Very, Very Careful

The one bad thing that came out of this most historic of all elections is that, sadly, it looks like there will be no Trump TV after all. But at least the Face of Evil proved me right about her never becoming president of the United States, though I admit I never thought she would come as close as she did.

(The fact is that, notwithstanding all the euphoria over Hillary’s embarrassing defeat, but for a few percentage points here and there, she very well could have won. Thus, it’s folly to believe that there’s a mandate for Donald Trump to take drastic action to put an end to the establishment corruption in D.C.)

This election also proved once again that Barack Obama is a fiction created by the media, as his enthusiastic campaigning for Hillary brought yet another embarrassing rejection of both him and his policies. If there was any doubt about what Americans thought of his “accomplishments,” they were shattered by the results of this election. For the third time in six years, BHO campaigned hard for Dirty Dem candidates— this time with a life-and-death fervor of someone running for a third term, which he was — and once again got his bloated ego handed to him on a platter.

No doubt most Americans were surprised when Trump and Hillary gave their lovey-dovey victory and concession speeches, respectively, and when Obama talked the next day about the importance of both sides working together. Then, to top it all off, pundits were twitterpating over his “peaceful transition” meeting with Trump. But, alas, it’s nothing more than showbiz optics for the TV cameras.

What few people — and virtually everyone in the media — fail to understand is that when politicians talk about working together, they mean working together to implement their policies. This is especially true of the Dirty Dems. This will become evident very early into the Trump presidency, and probably before he ever even takes office. Anything Trump and the Republican Congress try to pass into law will be swiftly and viciously opposed by the newly elevated Mafia boss Chuck Schumer and his criminal cohorts, with Barack Corleone behind the curtain urging him on and feeding him dirty-trick instructions.

The street protests that began the night after Trump was elected were the first signs of the violent resistance that is to come. And, notwithstanding his phony peaceful-transition talk after his meeting with Trump, Obama will, as always, be behind the scenes brewing up trouble. In fact, as far as BHO and the rest of the radical left are concerned, they’re still in power.

Which is why Trump made a huge mistake when he praised Obama and said he was looking forward to working with him and meeting with him often. Imagine inviting Obama back in the door! Right now Trump is smelling the aroma of power, and the danger is that he will try to please the very criminals he fought so hard to expose and defeat. I remember when Richard Nixon fell victim to this mistake, which at the time I labeled “kingitis” — the notion that you must make nice to your enemies so they will love you and cooperate with you in return. Lest you’ve forgotten, that didn’t work out too well for Tricky when Watergate hit the fan.

Listen up: Neither Barack Obama nor anyone else on the radical left has any intention of working with either Trump or the Republican Congress. Perhaps a goodly number of Republican Trump haters will timidly get on board the Trump Train in order to protect their own careers, as was evidenced in Paul Ryan’s Save-My-Ass speech Wednesday morning, but Ryan’s after-the-fact overture to Trump was precisely the kind of thing that has long disgusted voters. It was a last minute about-face in the hopes that Trump would keep him on as Speaker of the House, which he almost certainly will.

It would be a tragedy if Trump fell victim to kingitis and lost control of the very movement he led. The millions of enthusiastic people who voted for him did not do so in the hopes that he would “work with” those who are trying to, and succeeding at, destroying America. They voted for him in the belief that he would totally oppose their anti-American agenda and bring down the entrenched and corrupt system of the political class.

Thus, notwithstanding what they say on camera, the radical left does not want Trump to succeed. Think about it logically. Why would they want someone to succeed at dismantling everything they’ve worked so hard to accomplish and take America in a direction that is 180 degrees removed from the course they now have it on? Best Trump forget about making nice to the criminal class and focus on fulfilling all the promises he made to voters or he’s going to find himself hated by both sides.

And one of the earliest items on his agenda should be dealing with Hillary’s arrogant criminality. That should be easy, because all he needs to do is turn both the email and Clinton Foundation racketeering cases over to the new attorney general (hopefully Rudy Giuliani) and let him run with them. Contrary to what the know-nothing media believes, this is the kind of thing a majority of Trump voters would like to see addressed as quickly as possible.

If the cases are prosecuted legitimately, Hillary (and possibly Bill) will face a hundred years or more in prison. Then, of course, no pardons and no suspended sentences from Trump. As to BHO’s stepping in and giving the Clintons pardons before he leaves office, that would be a tough call for him. He’s already leaving behind a legacy as the worst president in U.S. history — Obamacare, the stimulus disaster, and the Help-Iran-Build-the Bomb agreement at the top of his list of failures — and pardoning two high-profile, convicted criminals would expose him historically as the Alinskyite that he is. Whether or not he pardons the HillBillies would almost certainly depend upon how much the Clintons have on him — and my guess is that that’s plenty.

I can understand Trump’s wanting to come out of the starting gate on a gracious note, but it made me wince when he said, in his victory speech: “We owe her [Hillary] a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country, and I mean that very sincerely.”

Really? Let’s be clear here: We owe Hillary Clinton nothing but a long prison sentence. She has done nothing good for the people of this country, but has done a whole lot to harm them. And her criminal activities put her just behind the Rosenbergs when it comes to crimes against America.

Trump then went on to say, “To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people.” Nice words, but, lest you forget, when Obama and his cohorts in crime swept into power in 2009, they gave the Republicans the middle finger and literally locked them out of meetings (especially Obamacare meetings), with Obama himself arrogantly reminding Republicans, “Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won.”  From whence came such atrocities as Obamacare, illegal executive orders, turning a blind eye to sanctuary cities, and a doubling of the national debt.

If Trump falls victim to the fantasy that he can be loved by everyone and hedges on his commitment to drain the swamp — which can only be done through harsh and prompt action — he may be facing the challenge of a new party led by Ted Cruz in 2020.

It’s good that Trump haters began protesting in the streets the day after he was elected, because it should remind him just how loathsome and violent the people are whom he is up against. His White House meeting with Obama and all the talk about how the United States believes in a “peaceful transfer of power” is just that — talk.

I wish it were not so, but the sad reality is that nothing about the Trump presidency will be peaceful. Once the radical left finally achieved power in 2008, the concept of peaceful transfer of power came to an unofficial end. Communists don’t give up power willingly; they fight to the bitter end to hold onto it. Despicable as they may be, those on the radical left are relentless, violent, and loyal to the cause of tyranny. They are, in fact, a pack of deplorables.

    It would be nice to get a copy of this to Trump. Hopefully it won't be a new understanding to him.

    • Chelverson says:

      Trump has a tweet account-just tweet him!!

    • phil says:

      get a copy of this to trump also —— don't forget mr president they (the repubs) had a 100 day plan to get rid of you

    • Barbara says:

      I KNOW this is the case that Robert has set out. I just pray that Trump will read this and take this to heart. The only thing that I never liked what Trump said on the stump is when he praised certain individuals who said nice things about him. That should NEVER be the criteria by which he measures an individual. I'm deathly afraid that he really wants " everyone to like him" and that could lead to his downfall. PLEASE DONALD, listen to your advisers who know politics for what they really are.

      • Jim Hallett says:

        Trump's presence in the spotlight with several different gigs – Miss Universe, The Apprentice, Trump Tower(s) et al. makes him highly vulnerable to the fatal flaw of being wooed by flattery. The Left HATES him, as do most establishment REPULSICANS, so he needs to be true to his vision and agenda – after all, that is what got him the win, and let the chips fall where they may. We don't need "NO Stinkin' Compromise" as that is the political blather that has created the mess we now have. We need WAY LESS (like NONE, ultimately!) govt., more individual freedom and more free market. If he surrounds himself with lots of advisors from the establishment, it will just be a rerun of past administrations, just with more debt and more violent outbursts.

  2. Angelo says:

    I had been thinking precisely along these lines myself. I am glad you put these thought in writing. I was wondering where I could write to in order to have them for the record. Your KEY comment here is “COMMUNISTS DON’T GIVE UP POWER WILLINGLY”. I know there will be many among the naive and uninformed that will take exception to that. They think that if communists change their self-designation to “progressives”, or “civil society”, or “liberals”, that they change their tactics and strategy. Not true. And it makes no sense to fall for the trick that other have fallen for before. Trump might well make that mistake. He does not appear to be philosophically clear. As such, he has a weak side… and he can be blindsided. Your warning is appropriate and timely. Thanks for getting it out there. This would be an excellent piece to try to get into Trump’s hands or the hands of people close to him (perhaps Dr. Carson).

  3. Figmo says:

    The Clinton Foundation scandal has been under investigation for a year no. If Obama granted clemency to Hillary while there is an ongoing investigation, would it be obstruction of justice?

    • Strider55 says:

      Nope. Like it or not, the president's pardon/reprieve authority is absolute, except in cases of impeachment.

      One silver lining, though — that authority only extends to federal crimes. If the Lizard Queen has violated a state law, she could still be prosecuted at that level. Of course, that assumes the state AG has not received a generous payoff from the Clinton Slush Fund Foundation.

  4. Arthur says:

    An astute perspective, as always…

  5. Bob Diamond says:

    Insightful as always. Trump fights hard with those who attack him. I doubt he will fall to Democratic antics. I see him slamming the Dems when they try to doublecross, circumvent and stymie him. I like the fact that as far as communications ability Trump is as good as or better than Obama was. We can be sure Obama will be on the sidelines stirring up trouble and I am glad we have a great communicator to counter Obama.

    • Phil says:

      If Trump fails to fight for his very clear promises, he will quickly become the most hated individual in the history of American politics. With good reason.

  6. larajf says:

    I am hoping Trey Gowdy is the Atty General, personally.

  7. josephlacey12 says:

    Sounds reasonable to me. Let the radical left flex their muscles… it will just bring home the message… they need to be destroyed… not 'gotten-along-with."

  8. Rick says:

    I agree. And I heard that Trump came out of the meeting with Barack Hussein Obama by saying (BHO) is a "good man"……after just earlier this week at rallies saying.that he is the worst president in US history. Now, come on. What's it going to be? And Obama is desparate is continue working closely with Trump only because he does not what his Obamacare legacy and "accomplishments" destroyed. I for one voted for Trump. If he caves in, then he need not come around in four years asking me to re-elect him. I will leave the Republican Party as millions of others will, and once again register as Independent!

    • Phil says:

      He would absolutely despised. Completely and totally, by the very people who elected him. Hard to say whether he stays true or not. We will know quickly though, once he is in office.

    • Barbara says:

      Yes, I am worried also that he made that statement. BHO is NOT a "good man." I was really surprised that he also praised Hildabeast for her "service?"

    • Jim Hallett says:

      While the comment may be bothersome, and a TOTAL LIE, you can hardly expect Trump to come out of a transfer meeting (2+ months before he is sworn in as president) and proclaim that BHO is a jerk, a crook, a deviant or any other such thing. I found the comment about having a debt of gratitude to the Clintons to be MUCH worse, as I could barely contain myself before reaching for the vomit bag!! They are pure evil, and all Americans should never rest until their rotten bodies are completely out of any control or influence over the nation, which will likely only come when each succumbs to their passing away. He has to maintain a professional approach now, but if he continues to cow-tow after taking office, that is an ENTIRELY different matter.

      • Reality Seeker says:

        "I found the comment about having a debt of gratitude to the Clintons to be MUCH worse, as I could barely contain myself before reaching for the vomit bag!!"

        I feel your pain…lol, well, kinda.. I never met DT, but many years ago I was acquainted with a handful of people DT did business with on a regular basis. These people ( Wise Guys, bag boys for the Mob and crooked law enforcement ) purchased some land from my Grandfather in upstate NY. These people were laundering money via real estate. They paid in cash, which my grandfather wasn't expecting, but he didn't back out of the deal. Anyway, to make a long story short, I learned through indirect experience the type of murders, thugs, Mafioso, Wise Guys, crooked government officials, union bosses and every other type of scumbags an individual like DT had to "graciously" make deals with… You don't make your way to the top of the NYC cesspool unless you're really, really, really good at what you do…

        DT made his way up to the top for a reason. Watch and learn.

        Watch and learn.

        The Godfather-in-Chief is just getting warmed up…

        • Pitch Pitchford says:

          Yes, doing whatever it takes with whoever is known as the "Art of the Deal," according to the Head Don! I once turned down a huge and very profitable business deal in Venezuela because I refused to do business with the then newly elected Communist Chavez…That is what's known as the difference between a real American and Donald Trump. I refused to HELP Chavez spread the lie about how glorious Communism is and of course today the entire world can once again see the disastrous results of Communism as Venezuela collapses into oblivion with forced labor, misery and death as their final reward and only legacy.
          Quite frankly, I feel 100% certain that our newly elected Godfather-in Chief, Donald J. Trump would have jumped at the deal I refused. I sincerely hope he proves me wrong with his actions and his promise of "America First" as our newly elected President. For him to do otherwise will merely hasten the day of America's final demise into a full blown third world banana Republic..

  9. TheLookOut says:

    Robert, Thanks again for your insight it's right on. Tens of millions of us feel
    exactly the same. The commie left will never stop their onslaught on this
    great country. A snake is always a snake, and will sink their fangs into
    the hand that reaches out.

  10. AL FLACK says:

    ROBERT, YOU ARE EXACTLY RIGHT. TRUMP'S GREATEST OBSTACLE TO BECOMING A REALLY GREAT PRESIDENT WILL BE TO CONVINCE THE RINO'S IN CONGRESS THAT NOTHING IS TO BE GAINED BY BEING "NICE" AND TRYING TO "GET ALONG" WITH THE POLITICAL LEFT. WE WON, YOU (DEMO LEFTISTS) LOST ! THE RIOTING IN THE STREETS BY THE LEFTISTS, PROTESTING TRUMP'S ELECTION, IS JUST ONE EXAMPLE OF HOW FAR THEIR INTOLERANCE WILL GO TO DISRUPT SOCIETY. I AGREE THAT GULIANI SHOULD BE APPOINTED AS ATTORNEY GENERAL, AND THAT HE SHOULD GO FULL BORE AGAINST THE CLINTONS (AND THEIR MINIONS) FOR THEIR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES, WHICH ARE MANY, INCLUDING THOSE USING THE CLINTON FOUNDATION TO MASK ITS ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES. WE ARE A NATION OF LAWS…AND IT IS ABOUT TIME THAT WE STARTED TO ENFORCE THE CONCEPT OF EQUAL JUSTICE.

  11. StickyFingers says:

    Politics as usual. Trump will be blamed when the recession hits. It did not matter who was in office. This country is no longer united but divided. It's going to get worse. Hatred and venom spewing. There is no coming together. The wedges have been driven. The party is over. Time to pay up. And you can bet, it's gonna be a blame game of epic proportions. Guess where the fingers will be pointed?

  12. Marte says:

    I agree. Trump can't back off now. I think we should all Tweet Trump with this message.

  13. Jurgy says:

    I maintained since 2008 that nana cankles would be our next president and I want to say how relieved I am that I was wrong.
    Robert I believe that Trump is too savvy and experienced to be taken in by the likes of the left. I just hope he succeeds in putting tons of abundance, security and new-found liberties into the pockets of all Americans so the lefties will just shut up for once.

  14. Jon says:

    I understand your concern, RJJR, but during the campaign, DJT never lost sight of why he was wining. He kept attacking. Now he has the Bully Pulpit from which to speak. When the Dirty Dems try to take down his proposals, I firmly believe he will use that Bully Pulpit to go directly to the people and by-pass the Deep State interference. Yes, the MSM can still try to block his message but we now have the Internet that renders the MSM almost powerless to stop him. If I correctly read his understanding of The Folks, he will find a way to get his message out regardless of the Chuckie Schumers and Company.

  15. Rocketman says:

    The "protestor leaders" will be discovered to be nothing but planted Democrat operatives that are there to make Trump think twice about trying to implement anti-socialist policies that would damage their cause (one world socialism). Your going to see more and more of this and will likely lead to the break up of the U.S. of A. into about 7 to 10 new countries.

  16. mo pye says:

    oi! oi! calm down folks do you forget that George W Bush and the so called coalition of the willing were the architects of the mess that is the middle east?One good thing good about agent Orange being commander-in-chief if not Groper-in-Chief is that he may have done away with dynasties,The Don is dysfunctional and will surely make America insular, that is why 'Le Monde' had the headline that said 'GOD FORGIVE AMERICA' for they have stirred the honest nest.For those who insist on defending the disgusting behaviour of DJT ,shame on you will be sending your daughters and wives and female relatives to be groped by the GROPER-IN-CHIEF,go on lead by example,a man who has to have his twitter account taken away because he is impulsive! really? get real mr RINGER bad day day are ahead we are rushing headlong into that wall you watch! and remember me when we go pick up humpty dumpty

    • Steve says:

      Care to try that again, but in English?

    • Jean says:

      Groper in chief? So, your preferred choice was to elect the wife and enabler of the Rapist in Chief instead? Puleeze! I understand if a criminal, perpetual liar and self-absorbed wench is your choice of leader – after all, our leadership reflects who WE are. And the French? My God, man, they are in a hissy fit because their overwhelmingly Muslim population demands it! Remember the Vichy regime? France is seeing a repeat performance in their own country, and have capitulated to the invaders.

  17. Harry Hagan says:

    Great essay. Perfect. I do hope Trump is getting this brand of info. I believe so. Rush was on about this very thing today. Shumer's nauseating voice will soon replace the evil, whiny voice of the execrable Reed. And he's a protected class, so it will be more insistent and the demands will be harsher and more difficult to deny. But they must be denied.

  18. Common Sense says:

    RJR, I'm glad I was wrong about who would win the election; I'm glad you were right.

    I woke up on the 9th to a pleasant surprise.

  19. theczech says:

    Mr. Trump can be civil without being overly complimentary. The less said by him at this time, the better. Things like; "good meeting," "thank you," "have your people call my people," and "sorry…gotta go, got work to do."

    I beg him not to get sucked into the vortex!

  20. Robert Smith says:

    Perhaps,I hope, Trump understands that he is not quite "in" yet. Perhaps the niceties are said until in a position to "drain the swamp." You are right that Communists and the like think that "give and take" means we give and they take. There many things in life where there can be no compromise such as criminal behavior including treasonous attacks on our Constitution. It will take years to counter what this cancerous ideology has done here and around the world. If this idea logical attack gains ground again this country will perhaps go the way of others in history. This is the time finally for the President and Congress to end this cancer or it will return and kill the body U.S.A. Do what you were sent there to do and stop this corruption!

  21. edda says:

    Mr. Ringer,
    A powerful, perceptive essay. Let's hope Trump's aides keep – continue to keep – his ego in check. AND – let's hope and pray his family, his wife, don't get caught up in the hysteria and splendor of the moment.

  22. StevenB says:

    I think Trump isn't going to play into the hands of anyone, especially someone he doesn't respect–and he doesn't respect Obama at all and is simply playing nice for the media to calm the rabid mob. The sun has indeed come up, but it is lighting a whole new landscape that is just beginning to blossom. And it will be glorious!

  23. Phil says:

    "Which is why Trump made a huge mistake when he praised Obama" – Amen, but when I saw the video of the meeting, rather than just hearing the audio, it seemed clear that Trump is not exactly falling over himself to flatter the His Highness. Going forward, we will learn quickly – within 100 days – whether Trump is the One or not.

  24. LENSOL says:

    I FEEL THAT P.E.DONALD J TRUMP IS A MAN OF HIS WORD. HE WILL DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO UPHOLD HIS AGENDA AND DELIVER ON HIS PROMISES. WE MUST ALL SIT BACK AND WATCH AND LISTEN.
    EVEN THE RINOS ARE TRYING TO GET ON BOARD, BECAUSE THEY SEE THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL
    I BELIEVE RUDY WOULD MAKE AN EXCELLENT A.G AND NEWT WOULD BE OUTSTANDING AS SEC OF STATE. IF HE COULD TAKE THE PAY CUT MAKE HANNITY THE P.R.GUY. IF HE REFUSES, TRY CONWAY.

  25. David Mills says:

    Trump has been criticized endlessly for his directness and honesty. I think today he was demonstrating that he could be "Presidential" also. There were no deals to make today — just a check-in to measure for new curtains and look at paint samples. So while there were tons of concealed weapons in the hands of the Obamas and their staff, Trump showed a side of himself that he couldn't risk showing during the campaign. If nothing else, I believe the advisers who are close to him will keep him in check. Trump clearly has a history of paying attention to his advisers. I've never been as optimistic that the corrupt and obese government will begin appropriate renovations. If I'm wrong, then this is the end. Of course, time will tell.

  26. Sue says:

    Why have Russia and Iran supported Trump? Because they believe he will make America weaker.

    • Gil Favor says:

      Wrong answer. Foreign nations don't want war, they want an end to their misery. It alarms me that Trump appears to be gushing in his support of the miserable little nation in the Middle East. I find this horrendous. We have to wean off that miserable little country and seeing Trump suck up to Bibi is disgusting. I don't want to see this, it's not in our best interests even though Trump's kids married into the Tribe.
      Many dangerous people out there and we will know very soon if it's going to be business as usual with the Tribe.

  27. Garet says:

    I had that cringe worthy moment as DT payed accolades to the "Queen" also. However I do consider it was 3 in the morning, the grueling campaign schedule, the shock of being elected and having to come up with a concession speech for the Queen.

  28. patg2 says:

    I think it's just talk. Trump said the humble and conciliatory words everyone expected to hear. I don't believe for one moment he will back off from cleaning the swamp. We'll just have to wait and see. But he didn't build what he has without being tough.

  29. Nasdaq7 says:

    I think Trump must be careful how he handles the situation, Iran has already made threats via their foreign minister, so in my view he must steady the ship. Everything and everyone can come down on him at once. He needs to build a competent team that will lead the US to prosperity. But he must be careful going out for revenge, because the riots and international threats is only the beginning of what lies ahead. He needs to build confidence in everyone. Let the authorities do their jobs and start focusing on rebuilding the country. He needs to do something that will give the stock market something to cheer about – if possible lower business taxes ASAP, so build confidence first with steps that will boost everyone's confidence and security.

    You can be sure they will protest and riot – that is their favorite way of showing dissent, so calm the situation. But get a really competent team together which will include some people that has faith in him. That's my view on the situation, steady the ship.

  30. Nasdaq7 says:

    If Trump is successful, the stock markets may rally because of all his planned reforms. It might be a good idea to invest something.

  31. Nasdaq7 says:

    “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.”

    The Clintons and Democrats grabbed New York and California and thought the election race was over.

    • Jim Hallett says:

      The Dumbocrats ALWAYS win CA and NY, and MA & DC. They are never in play for anyone else. What shocked them is they lost PA, MI and WI, which they usually win. OH & FL are always swing states that hang in the balance, and fortunately Trump beat Hildabeast in both.

      • Strider55 says:

        Two reasons why FL is a swing state: 1) the legions of "Condo Commies" in & around Miami, and 2) the 20-year invasion of Puerto Ricans in & around Orlando. Without them, the state would be a GOP lock, as it was as recently as 1988. (I wasn't living here then, but read the Dukakis campaign closed its FL HQ on or near Oct. 1, effectively conceding the state.)

        Trump could turn FL red again by getting Congress to make Puerto Rico independent, whether the dysfunctional population liked it or not. Then the PRs living here would no longer have the vote, as they would be citizens of a foreign country.

  32. Richard Van Der says:

    I doubt that Trump is naive, and would not fall into an ego trap. Also, he is known for listening to others who are close to him, and invites them to speak their minds. That being the case, if he did (and I doubt that he would) fall into an ego-trap, someone "near and dear" would inform him. Family members? Pense? et al. No, I think the apparent cordiality between Ohole and Trump was only a formality pretending to "make nice" for the camera. A matter of "politeness" that is/was meaningless RE Reality. I belive we will see Trump follow through on what HE INTENDS. Of course his intentions may be met with some resistance in some sectors, but, I like to believe he will give it, his intentions, his best shot! Time and experience will, as always, tell the story.

  33. Reality Seeker says:

    Wow! What a night! November 8th!

    Here in Houston, at my hacienda, we partied all night long. There were friends and family some of who never voted until this election.

    I admit, yes, I was not at all gracious when DT achieved victory! Seeing the the head of the Clinton Crime Family get her head cracked open by the Godfather Trump was probably the most bittersweet political moment in my lifetime. I doubt it shall be repeated. When Wisconsin fell to Trump, full-throated barbaric yawps shot out from the Deplorables in mi hacienda and echoed down the block and across the city park…..

    The beer, wine and cocktails continued to be imbibed all night…. except by me… Like the Godfather, I never needed liquor.

    As a native New Yorker, I know a little bit about Trump…. And, to be honest, I didn't really know if he could take out the Clinton Crime Family because they were so heavily backed by a consortium of other cartels, including the very powerful banking cartel and media cartel. But Godfather Trump, pulled it off….

    I didn't know if the Godfather would win the Mafia war, (and, oh my! What a war it was) but what I do know for sure is how the Godfather will govern… How? Well, like the Godfather, of course! What did you expect? ….. that he'd govern like Ron Paul?

    At first, I thought that the Godfather might take out members of the GOP Crime Family to set an example, e.g., Paul Ryan, but the Godfather has instead allowed Paul to kiss his ring….. Trump has obviously pivoted from being a candidate for president ( " say hello to my little friend" ) to actually winning the Mafia war and becoming Godfather – in – Chief…..

  34. Reality Seeker says:

    "Again The Devil brought him to a very high mountain [aka the Shinning City on the Hill?], and he showed him all the Kingdoms of the world and their glory. The devil said to him, 'I will give you all this if you will bow down and worship me.'" ~ Matthew 4: 8,9

    I don't go to Church. I don't claim to be part of any religion. I don't even know if God loves me or not, and there are times when I don't even believe God exists; however, I do read the Bible daily along with many other books… I'm one of the lucky people in this world whose full time job just happens to be his passionate hobby. And that hobby is analyzing the world around me — past, present and future…. And, at times, I feel like I might actually be the luckiest person on earth…. And one reason why is because I'm in a position to be totally honest with myself..

    So, honestly, who do I think that Satan the Devil is going to tempt on the unusually high mountain of power? I can't help but presume that Trump is the devil's primary focus right now. I already know Trump has a Godfather complex. And the devil ( if there is one) knows it, too. I know what type of man Trump is and who he did business with in the 70s and 80s and how that business was done. And the devil knows everything about Trump— every last exploitable weakness..

    Personally, I think Trump will start out as one of the best Godfathers America has ever had. And he's going to accomplish more in the first year than most presidents do in four… He will take the American Empire far… I hope…What I don't know ( and I don't think anybody knows ( God only knows)) is whether or not Trump will be totally tempted by the Evil that lurks in Washington. Call that Evil whatever you want. I don't care if your an atheist or not, I think most people can understand and agree that the executive branch of power first tempts the best of men into corruption, and then it draws them into worshiping at the alter of power and at some point they actually bow down to the high Prince of Darkness " and do an act of worship to him"..

      Yes, God exists and loves you very much. Go back to Jeremiah 29 starting with verse 11. Although this was specifically for the Hebrews then, it's for us today.

      • Reality Seeker says:

        You're partly correct, that was a passage written for the Israelites by an Iseralite specifically for a remnent in Babylonian captivity. God had a *choosen* people then; and supposedly, He has a choosen people now. How do you know if I'm part of God's choosen people? You don't. And, moreover, you don't know if God loves me or not. Don't presume to know what you do not know.

        In a general sense of the word love, i.e., "agape", yes, indeed, God loves everybody; " for God makes the sun shine on both the righteous and unrighteous; and He causes a gentle rain to fall on both the good and the wicked." However, regarding a deep personal love ( and a plan) for me, you don't know; in fact, you have no idea. But thanks for the attempt to encourage and teach me….

    Although Trump's praise of Obama and Hillary was nauseating to those of us who voted for him, I believe that's just Trump. I caught a few minutes of The Apprentice every so often, and Trump's style was to tell the next person in line to be fired all of the GOOD things he or she had to offer before he brought the hammer down. It's why he could describe Vladimir Putin as "a great leader" without necessarily buying into his vision for Russia (or the world). I interpret this as Trump-style diplomacy, which is part of what makes him a street-savvy negotiator.

  36. Krishna Raj says:

    Honestly I don't care who won…but looks like the above article is a republican propaganda and surprised to see so many educated vote based on party lines than issue based.

    Trump is an idiot,and emotionally unbalanced person who can't keep his emotions under control, watching the three debates.

    He iwill be a good leader for a third world country ( like Duterte of the Phillipines ) but not expected from the most powerful democratic countries in the world and have come out with a person like Trump is a big disaster for USA….

    For heavens sake get out of your party based opinions and donsome hard thinking and vote for a President, who people around the word will respect and emulate him to lead their country out of poverty ….that's the message you should send it to the world and not race / religion / Color based President ….how can such a person be a world leader….

    Trump is the worst President Americans have chosen and only God can save America and not Trump….

    • Serge says:

      Generally, Trump will be disliked by the people around the world who happened to like BO. In other words the bad guys liked BO and the good guys will like and respect Trump. BTW pray for President Trump as you would any President.

    • Jim Hallett says:

      RJR, like myself, is a liberatarian and NOT a Republican, so he is hardly touting a party line. Perhaps, you have not followed him long so have not seen his many critiques of Bush and other establishment folks. Since a real breath of fresh air and morally-solid candidate like Ron Paul was not on the ballot, we had to choose between two very different outcomes – Hildabeast, who is PURE EVIL and the rottenest SOB since LBJ to ever run for office, and the Donald, who despite all his faults, can give America a reset and a chance to stop its accelerating decline. Race and gender were issues that caused people to choose Ovomit or Hildabeast, and not what caused them to select Trump.

    'Hillbillies service'? You mean like Benghazi 'service'? Get real!
    And remember, we MUST counter Soros's money.

    • Strider55 says:

      If Soros' money can be tied to BLM and the other thug gangs, he should be charged with incitement, and perhaps even as an accessory to their violence. Then he could be stripped of his citizenship, declared persona non grata and deported. But don't send him to just any old place. According to several articles I recently read, Russia has an arrest warrant out for him — seems he tried to crash their stock market awhile back.

  38. Charles Goffnett says:

    It will only take a very short amount of time before the first Affirmative Action President trashes Trump and that love fest will be over…not really believing he was sincere about working with Obummer anyway….

  39. Rock Roach says:

    I am sure that Trump is just trying to keep himself from being assassinated before inauguration day. The meeting was just lip service for everyone else. Obama is going to chime in whether Trump wants to hear it or not, so he might as well act as though he is willing to listen. I imagine what happens after Trump is officially in- will be what his agenda is.

  40. Barry Hildebrand says:

    Both Clintons in JAIL forever (actually 100 years each pounding rocks into sand) would be satisfactory punishment.

  41. Serge says:

    Looking back on Trumps real estate career from the get go, he has always had a low tolerance for B.S. From the tenants in his buildings to the workers on those buildings, he has always wanted the best for his empire. I thought he was pretty slick on BO's chat session, after all this will keep friction down from the protesters and he knows BO is the start of the swamp draining. He was being diplomatic on one of the dirtiest sly dogs out there beside the hillbillies not to mention others in the swamp.

  42. Sue says:

    From Aaron Sorkin's open letter to his 15-year-old daughter in order to explain what happened:

    "Well the world changed late last night in a way I couldn’t protect us from. That’s a terrible feeling for a father. I won’t sugarcoat it—this is truly horrible. It is the first time that a thoroughly incompetent pig with dangerous ideas, a serious psychiatric disorder, no knowledge of the world and no curiosity to learn has won…

    Klan won yesterday. The white nationalists.The sexists, racists and bufoons.”

    • Jim Hallett says:

      Another media apologist who cannot tolerate losing, so has to revert to characterizing everyone else as somehow inferior. Sounds like the kind of elitist academic drivel that comes out of university profs all over. You would much rather have had a SOCIOPATH, LIAR, CHEATER, MURDERER like Hildabeast? Who are the real buffoons, now???

  43. Lyndon Laird says:

    I don't think Trump harbors any illusions that "he can be loved by everyone."

  44. Judy says:

    Agree it is all fake trump needs to remain loyal to his supporters the dirty dems are wolves in sheeps clothing we have confidence in trump who he surrounds himself in and listens to we cannot cave at this point they are restless and never gives up right now they are livid that the republicans have taken over

  45. John says:

    Love seeing Democrats implode like this. Their supporters are showing the USA why Dems are truly not be trusted ever again. The jig is up and mid term elections will see more anti dem votes, not necessarily pro GOP though.

  46. Sue says:

    "Dear Americans,

    Go ahead, vote for the guy with the loud voice who hates minorities, threatens to imprison his opponents, doesn't give a fuck about democracy, and claims he alone can fix everything. What could possibly go wrong.

    Good luck.

    "Like any number of us raised in the late 20th century, I've spent my life perplexed about exactly how Hitler could have come to power in Germany. Watching Donald Trump's rise, I now understand."

  47. Sanjeet Veen says:

    Donald trump is similar to the Indian PM MODI. Great days are welcome for Americans. They love Trump because Trump thinking is much powerful and unique.

    • Sue says:

      Unique!!!!??? Are you kidding me? So what's so unique about it? You must be very young and lack knowledge of history. You just wait and see!

  48. Politi-king says:

    I bit too partisan for me because it omits that Both parties compose the current swamp. When Trump began his primaries, he did point out that both parties were corrupt, that the establishment was corrupt. Effectively, he should be worried of people who have his worst interest at heart sprinting to make best pal. On the other hand, Trump said he will unify the country, as did Bismarck when he created a unified Germany, and avoided wars with his neighbors despite the continuous provocations. The biggest threat currently for his future administration is that he is allowing himself complacency, effectively wooed by the surge in power. The premiere threat to his future Presidency are:
    1.The relationship between the future White House and Trump Inc.
    2. Asking security clearance for his children because he needs their advice, big mistake. They were not elected, nor are they appointed. If he appoints some, then he will have to live with the perception that he supports cronyism, which he decried as a Candidate. Big risk…
    3. Inferring that he might use Trump Tower as his second White House even after the 21st of January.
    4. The possibility that Trump Inc may profit from the largess of Government through endevours such as the New Trump Hotel in DC.
    If he does not avoid these traps, and let himself comforted by the nonchalance of his entourage and the Deep State, these are the elements that will compromise his Presidency. And instead of increasing his potential for Boldness, will truncate his power and determination. Now, in all your beautiful article, you made abstraction that many who elected him, and currently entrust him are non partisan voters, indenpendents.

  49. Colin Campbell says:

    I think Trump's praise of Obama and Hillary was merely an example of Will Rogers' definition of diplomacy: "The art of saying "Nice doggie" until you can find a rock."

  50. David M. Brown says:

    It's possible, and I hope, that Rush Limbaugh is right in saying that all these sweet words are Trump's way of dealing with how tense certain parts of American society are right now, as exemplified by the rioting in the streets. Maybe he's trying to give maniacal Clinton supporters misleading cues, etc. It's all guesswork until we see what he does as president. That boondoggle infrastructure spending was so near the top of the to-do list he gave in his victory speech is not a good sign. I would much rather have heard big stress on how immediately and thoroughly Obamacare would be repealed. Trump is contradictory, but he's also wily. So we'll see.
