The Final Days: Obama Adds to his “LEGACY” and the Obama/Hillary “HYSTERIA” Peaks

Early in Obama’s first term as President, Charles Krauthammer, a psychiatrist made the observation that Obama was a pathological narcissist. If there was ever any doubt about that diagnosis, everything Obama is saying and doing in his final days as President will leave no doubt about it.

The behavior of Obama and Hillary supporters leading up to, and especially after the election, also leaves no doubt that you simply cannot reason with a liberal Obama or Hillary supporter.

Here are just a few recent examples that confirm these two observations:

Obama “LEGACY”:

Obama went on an expensive world tour where he held a press conference in every country he visited, and then held a lengthy White House press conference when he returned with the same message.He bragged about how much safer and more stable the world is now after his eight years in office! REALLY?

In a recent interview Obama said that he advised President elect Trump to work with Congress and avoid issuing executive orders! REALLY?

Obama publicly praised President Bush for strictly adhering to the American tradition of only having one President at the time after he left office. Obama then said he would do the same, but added “unless my accomplishments are threatened”!

Obama plans to stay in Washington after he leaves office. He has rented a 20 room Washington mansion from a wealthy liberal friend and has his staff and supporters working around the clock establishing a “shadow government” with the express purpose of opposing the Trump Presidency and continuing to push his anti-American agenda.

The Obama family takes another, one of the most expensive, vacations in presidential history. This forces many people to work during the holidays and interrupts many Hawaii resident’s holidays.

Obama announced five new major regulations at the EPA and Department of Energy. It is estimated that these new rules will cost American businesses about five billion dollars a year in compliance cost including about 350,000 man hours a year just completing paperwork.

Obama issued an executive order putting into place some of the most sweeping and restrictive drilling regulations in history.

New releases from Gitmo are scheduled just before Obama leaves office.

Obama signed  231 Federal prisoner pardons and sentence commutations, a one day record..He claims these are low level drug offenders who were sentenced to harsh prison sentences unfairly due to their race. In every case I have seen where the details were made public this is absolutely not true. They were career criminals who dealt in hard drugs and even illegal guns in some cases. In addition to being non- white they all plea bargained to avoid being prosecuted for additional charges.

The Obama Administration quietly encouraged a surge in illegals with the majority allowed to stay with unrealistic court dates scheduled (for which they will most likely never show up).

Obama eliminated the “male Muslim immigrant from specific countries registry requirement” that was established after 911. This regulation has not been enforced since Obama has been in office.

The US abstained from a UN vote allowing a pro PLO anti-Israel resolution to pass, which cannot be undone.

Obama/Hillary “HYSTERIA”

Jill Stein was used as a “front” and given millions of dollars to try and force recounts in three states. This effort actually caused Hillary to lose votes, Trump to gain votes and uncovered voter fraud in some precincts.

Personal information about Electoral College delegates pledged to Trump, and in some cases their family member’s personal information was made public, resulting in them being barraged with letters, phone calls and emails attempting to get the delegates to NOT cast their vote for Trump. In many instances the delegate or their family members were threatened with financial or physical harm and even death.

When the recount attempts and efforts to force the Electoral College to elect Hillary failed (she actually lost more Electoral College votes than any previous candidate since 1822), the rabid Hillary supporters are now trying to determine other ways to prevent Trump from being certified or otherwise prevent him from serving as President. Efforts being publicly discussed are getting Vice President Biden, as president of the Senate to refuse to certify him or filing a wide variety of criminal complaints/ charges against him. If everything else fails their “last ditch” plan is to file so many law suits against him and his family that he cannot function as President (this actually worked against Sarah Palin when she was governor of Alaska).

New efforts to do away with the Electoral College, or find a way to avoid it are being launched in Congress and eleven states.

MTV posted an online video that was one of the most racist, un-American and disgusting videos that I have ever seen. It featured young people saying things like, “America has never been a great place unless you were an old white guy” and insulting Fox News. This is what our young people are being taught in America now?

No Washington high school has applied for a permit to march in the inaugural parade.

Major performers are not willing to participate in the Trump inauguration.

Massive boycotts and protests are being organized for inauguration day in Washington and other major cities.

In spite of the long standing tradition of Presidents getting to pick their cabinet members and department heads Senate Democrats are already planning to try and  block an unprecedented number of President elect Trump’s picks.

Sanctuary cites are “doubling down” plus allocating tax payer dollars to provide increased legal assistance for illegals fighting deportation.

A Hillary supporter verbally assaulted Ivanka Trump while she was traveling in coach on a Jet Blue flight with her husband and three children. The verbal assault was so vicious and disruptive that the man, who was carrying a small child at the time, was removed from the flight before it left the gate. The man’s partner was twitting and posting on Face Book about what they were doing in advance and during the verbal assault

A New York artist saw a picture of Ivanka Trump with a piece of his art on the wall behind her and issued a public demand that she remove his art from her home.

Some famous designers have publicly stated that they will not “dress” Melania Trump.

Obama played more golf than any President in History by a substantial margin, yet some of the media criticized Trump for playing golf with Tiger Woods one afternoon this week?

Eric Trump was forced to shut down his St Jude charity foundation due to “conflict of interest” accusations. He has raised over a million dollars for St Jude with 97% of all money raised going to St Jude.

STAY TUNED FOR THE FINAL WEEKS! It is going to get much worse with each passing day!

The Electoral College is Still a Critical Part of Our Constitutional Election Process

Every time I thought about the Founding Fathers throughout my life I always came to the same conclusion. These men were absolutely brilliant and their ability to understand human nature and predict the future was phenomenal!  The Electoral College is just one example of that.

The Electoral College was included in the Constitution to solve a significant set of problems that existed at the time, but when you consider the demographics of America today the Electoral College is still a critical part of our election process.

When the Constitution was written America had thirteen fiercely independent states, spread out over a thousand miles of the eastern sea coast, with a total population of about four million people. When you consider the fact that no formal established means of communication existed between the states, developing a method for holding fair and equitable national elections was a daunting task. That is why the Electoral College became part of our original Constitution. Without it certain key states would have carried such a majority of the votes that other states would not have had a voice in national elections, national affairs, or international affairs, and the United States of America would not have HAPPENED! 

The following explanation of the Electoral College process is posted on the US Government Archives

The Electoral College is a process, not a place. The founding fathers established it in the Constitution in 1787 as a compromise between election of the President by a vote in Congress and election of the President by a popular vote of qualified citizens.

The selection of the electors, the meeting of the electors, where they vote for the President and Vice President and the counting of the electoral votes by Congress are all part of the process.

Today the Electoral College has 538 electors. A majority of 270 electoral votes is required to elect the President. Your state’s allotment of electors equals the number of members in its Congressional delegation: one for each member in the House of Representatives plus two for your Senators.

Under the 23rd Amendment of the Constitution, the District of Columbia is allocated 3 electors and treated like a state for purposes of the Electoral College. For this reason the word “state” also refers to the District of Columbia.

Each candidate running for President in your state has his or her own group of electors. The electors are generally chosen by the candidate’s political party, but state laws vary on how the electors are elected and what their responsibilities are.

Any changes to the Electoral College process require a Constitutional Amendment, which is NOT going to happen!

Today the lack of a formal established means of communication that the Founding Fathers faced has obviously been solved, but the demographics of America still justify the Electoral College process for choosing our President. Here are a few examples of why that is true:

  • California has approximately 12% of the total U.S. population.
  • Approximately 40% of the total U.S. population lives on the west coast and the central/north east coast.
  • Six of the states that issue drivers licenses to illegal immigrants are on the west and central/north east coast, which adds to the potential voter rolls in those states.

These three statistics alone make it clear that without the Electoral College all our national elections would be decided by the states on the west and central/north east coast. Which means all national elections, and consequently national and international affairs would be decided by these states. That is the America our Founding Fathers were so afraid of!








During the Next 50 Days We May See America Torn Apart

Over the last few days it has become clear that there is absolutely NO chance that we can take a cautious step back and breathe a little easier between now and inauguration day! The Left is still determined to “anoint” Hillary regardless of the cost or resulting damage to America. In fact it now seems obvious to me that Trump’s win actually fits right in with the Left’s plan to “fundamentally change America”, even if it has to be done with violence. There are just too many things happening now to deny it.

To begin with we had “instant” protest that became riots immediately after the election results were announced. These protests were organized by paid protestors who for the most part did not live where they were protesting and did not vote in the election. I saw a protest leader in Chicago being interviewed on camera last week. When asked if he voted he said, “No, there is nothing to vote for in this country”. REALLY? According to some of the protest organizers the protests will continue and grow in size, and violence with the intent of disrupting the Presidential inauguration (unless they can succeed with their plans to “anoint” Hillary). However, the protests are nothing compared to everything else that the Left is doing.

Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate, with lots of help recently began to demand a recount in key states. However since no one could point to any evidence of voter machine tampering there is no justification for a recount. Consequently anyone who asks for a recount in a specific state will have to fill out the necessary paperwork, before that states deadline, and pay for the recount. Jill Stein actually held a press conference and acknowledged that “experts” could not find any evidence of voter machine tampering but insisted they wanted recounts to assure future elections were fair. Remarkably her group suddenly got $6 million in “donations” so she could formerly request recounts and pay for them. Amazing that $6 million just appeared in her group’s bank account!  And now the Clintons have publicly announced that they will join this recount effort.

Unfortunately the recount effort is by no means the biggest threat to the election results. There is another organized and well-funded effort to change enough Electoral College votes to keep Trump out of the Whitehouse. These people have two websites up and running and are actively working to get Electors that are committed to Trump to change their votes to Hillary. Two have already publicly announced that they are changing their votes and are making the rounds on TV shows, including FOX trying to convince other Electors to do the same. I am having more than a little trouble understanding how anyone could seek a slot as an Elector, take an oath to carry out their duties as the voters in their state desired, and then publicly violate that oath and work to encourage others to do the same thing. Unfortunately only 25 states and the District of Columbia legally require that their Electors vote like they were committed to do by the voters. Unfortunately the penalty for violating that law is a small fine, which I am sure Clinton supporters will be happy to pay for anyone who changes their vote to Hillary!

We also have Liberal members of Congress doing everything they can to cast doubt on the Trump transition team’s work and throw “road blocks“ out in front of the transition team’s work. Elijah Cummings was one of the first to actively start this effort by writing a letter to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) demanding they audit the transition team because” it is in such disarray that it is probably misspending tax payer money”. And then Elizabeth Warren loudly and publicly joined in the efforts to demand that the GAO audit the Trump transition team’s work. These people want the GAO to waste taxpayer money and interfere with the Trump transition team’s work at a critical time because they think the team is in disarray?

In case you do not know their history these letters to the GAO and their public statements about the Trump transition team are typical behavior for Elijah Cummings and Elizabeth Warren. For example Cummings has a long history of “Abuse of Power” activity. He was one of the original members of Congress to demand, in writing that the IRS do something about the conservative groups that were applying for tax free group status during Obama’s first term. When an organizer of one of the targeted groups got a copy of his letter she filed formal “Abuse of Power” charges against him, which went NOWHERE with the current criminal Department of Injustice in power. Elizabeth Warren changed her personnel records at Harvard Law school to indicate that she was 1/32nd “Native American” so she could claim minority status. When a genealogist traced her history and could not find any Native American linkage and Warren was questioned about it, her only response was that she remembered her Grandmother talking about her Great Grandmother talking about their Indian ancestors. She also publicly blasted Trump for making money during the housing market crash. No surprise there, but she did the same thing! These are just two of the people actively working to destroy America and the next 50 days are their last best chance to do that.

We are also seeing and hearing loud complaints about Trump “conflicts of interest” because some of his family is involved in his transition team and because of his worldwide business interest, and he has not even been sworn in yet .On a legal note the President and Vice President are legally exempt from conflict of interest regulations. If they were not they would not be able to function due to constantly being attacked with “conflict of interest” complaints. It is ethical and desirable for the President and Vice President to try and avoid what could appear to be conflict of interest activities, but they have much bigger things to be concerned about in America and the world today. Publicly making these accusations now is not in America’s best interest.

Obama just wasted many millions of dollars doing a world tour where he spoke publicly in every country he visited about all his accomplishments, and said he would not remain silent after leaving the Whitehouse when there is a threat to his accomplishments!  And we thought Jimmy Carter was a really bad past President!

About two days after the election it seemed to me like a majority of the people in America collectively “breathed a sign of relief” and said, “OK we can get on with our lives now”.  Maybe not……

Note to those of you who are still in “mourning” over the election results, I suggest you read this article,  especially the update I added at the bottom.


Turmoil in the Democratic National Committee and the New American Revolition

Late in the week, before the Democratic National Convention, WikiLeaks released copies of hacked Democratic National Committee emails reconfirming that key Committee staff members actively worked to assure Hillary was the Democrat nominee (isn’t attempting to rig an election a Federal crime?). Due to the size of the document release analyst believe more damaging information will be discovered over the next few days.

The day before “day one” of the Democratic National Convention (DNC), disaster strikes as information about the Democratic National Committee’s activities become  “news” with some media. Turmoil erupts inside and outside the convention hall. The number of protesters increase and they become loud outside the convention hall and Debbie Wasserman Shultz is pressured to resign as Democratic National Committee chair. She agrees to resign after the convention and will only officially open and close the convention. Hillary blames the problems on Russian hackers, ignoring the criminal actions of the Democratic National Committee staff. Hillary also claims in a TV interview that she had no knowledge of the Committee staff’s efforts to rig the primary election for her. Hillary publicly announces her support for Shultz and then doubles down by announcing that she has hired Shultz to be co-chair of her national campaign.

Two new polls show Trump taking a noticeable lead over Hillary.

Day one, before the convention opens, the protests get bigger and louder outside the convention hall and Shultz is booed off the stage at a breakfast meeting with her home state delegation! Shultz is forced to totally withdraw from any role in the convention. Clinton campaign spokesman attempts to ”spin” the committee staffers actions in TV interviews by only talking about the alleged source of the released emails being Russian. WikiLeaks announces it will release more hacked emails before the general election, including some from Hillary’s PRIVATE SERVER! The protest outside the convention hall get bigger and louder by the hour and the Democrats doing interviews inside the convention hall continue to “foolishly” ignore the turmoil all around them while trying to “spin” what a great convention theirs will be, as opposed to how bad the Republican convention was. Classic example was Juan Williams on the “Five” loudly declaring how “disastrous” the RNC was. For many years now I have been constantly amazed at how resolute the people speaking for the Democrats are at sticking to the Democratic talking points for the day. It does not appear that everyone is buying the “spin”, including some of the media that usually goes out of their way to support Hillary. The Democratic National Committee is totally silent. The DNC attempts to officially open with loud shouting matches happening between various factions. Some speakers, like Senator Warren were booed and heckled as they spoke. It looks like it is going to be a rough week for Hillary and the Democrats, especially the Democrats supporting Hillary.

Day two of the DNC starts off like day one. Bernie and Hillary supporters engage in another shouting match at a breakfast meeting and the protestors outside are still active and loud. The fence around the convention center has to be reinforced due to protestors climbing it. Bernie supporters still refuse to endorse Hillary and are still trying to replace her. Even though Hillary gave BLM representatives speaking slots at the DNC a BLM protest march is happening outside the convention hall with a “Hillary Delete Yourself” banner carried in the front row of marchers. Newly released emails show that Shultz’s replacement, Donna Brazile  (one of the most racially divisive women to ever sit before a TV camera, for years on the Sunday morning show “Georgia Gang”)  was also critical of Bernie. Hillary is officially “coronated”. A large number of Bernie supporters leave the convention hall and join the protestors outside the hall. BLM protest outside the convention hall are also getting bigger and louder. A BLM protest leader orders all white people to the back of the group and says, “This is a black and brown movement”. Bernie supporters burn an American flag outside the convention hall. Geraldo Rivera is surrounded, verbally abused, doused with water from behind and physically removed from a BLM protest by a very large black man. I still do not see any American flags in the convention hall? The Democrats and main stream media still claim that the “RNC was a disaster”.

Day 3 at the DNC. Trump holds a morning press conference ,no prepared notes, no questions off limits in Miami. During the press conference he challenges the media to get Hillary to do a press conference. She has not held a press conference since December 2015, and that one was scripted and controlled. He also made a joke about Russia finding Hillary’s missing 30,000 emails. To quote Charles Krauthammer this was a neat trap that the Hillary campaign immediately fell into, followed immediately by most of the “main stream” media. They foolishly continued to try and “spin” the allegation that it was the Russians who hacked the systems, while trying to ignore what was in the released documents. And then they really “took the Trump bait” and began to accuse Trump of creating a national security issue by encouraging a foreign power to hack into systems that had sensitive documents in them (confirming that Hillary improperly stored and transmitted sensitive national security documents?).

Apparently the DNC has now been publicly called out enough on the internet to force them to put two American flags in the convention hall. New reports say that the Democratic National Committee staff that tried to rig the election for Hillary violated campaign finance laws. Jill Stein visits the DNC and talks to Bernie supporters (Her party will influence the General Election). More leaked emails and voice mail recordings confirm that the DNC controlled access to Obama, Hillary and other top Democrats based on how much money donors raised/donated. Pepper spray is used on protestors trying to scale the convention hall fence. Protestors use bolt cutters to force access to a secure area inside the fence with some being arrested by the Secret Service. A protestor stomping on a burning U.S. flag catches their clothes on fire and is burned bad enough to require hospitalization. There is still no mention of ISIS. Complaints from residents in the convention hall area about, noise, trash, vandalism, illegal camping, nudity and other crud behavior by the protestors are increasing daily.

Nancy Pelosi makes her ridiculous “GGG” (God Guns and Gays) statement on live TV and repeats it again later that afternoon. She said that the reason Hillary has a problem with the white male vote is because, “uneducated white males in America vote against their own economic good because of their feelings about “God, Guns and Gays”.

Leon Pennetta’s speech backfires while he tries to promote Hillary’s ability to handle all the problems in the world. As he goes through a long list of war torn countries and unstable governments it becomes obvious that Obama’s foreign policies have created a very unstable world, with Hillary’s help for four of his eight years. At one point some state delegations interrupted him with loud chants, “no more wars”.

Bill Clinton almost frantically tried to portray Hillary as the most qualified, successful and accomplished person in history, plus being on a level of care and giving to people that is above and beyond Mother Teresa’s. I wondered what he would do if anyone ask him the simple question that no one else has been able to answer yet, “can you name one positive thing she actually accomplished during her four years as Secretary of State?’.

Bloomberg’s speech is a total Trump attack.

Joe Biden’s entire speech was a Trump attack that should have been beneath the office of Vice President of the United States of America.

When Tim Kaine opened his VP acceptance speech with a “shout out” to his son who just deployed with the Maries the audience was shockingly unresponsive. He used most of the rest of his speech to attack Trump.

Obama repeated what Bill said about Hillary’s extraordinary qualifications and accomplishments, then repeatedly patted himself on the back as he listed each of his administrations remarkable accomplishments (which were not true)  and then spent the rest of his speech making ridiculous claims about Trump.

Day 4 of the DNC begins with Rudy Giuliani reporting that uniformed police officers were not allowed inside the convention hall during the convention. This was so unbelievable to him that he spent the last two days investigating and confirming that it was indeed a convention rule. This is textbook Hillary. Just ask any Secret Service agent and they will tell you that getting assigned to Hillary’s detail is actually a form of punishment.

Regarding the uniformed officer ban inside  the convention hall, I wrote in one of my articles recently about Hillary changing her position on major issues more often than she changes her pants suits. The night after Giuliani and Fox made the uniformed officer convention hall ban public a woman uniformed officer came to the podium to call for a moment of silence for slain officers. Immediately, during the moment of silence people in the audience began to yell “black lives matter”.

Jesse Waters attempted to interview Convention attendees about their position on “Sanctuary Cites” and “Kate’s Law”.  Their behavior and responses were despicable, even though they knew they were on camera.

The high point of day 4 seemed to be Lanny Davis popping up in front of any TV camera or microphone he could find to tell anyone who would listen about how he has known Hillary since law school and what a great, warm, kind, loving, giving person she really is. With all the attack Trump speeches (some of which were actually sophomoric) and Lanny’s last minute efforts to humanize Hillary, it appears that they are worried about her electability.

Clearly the final analysis of this DNC shows that it was undeniably un-patriotic, anti-military, anti-police, with an attack Trump and Republicans theme. It can only be described as unethical and worse, un-American! This convention did not bring the Democratic Party together, much less America.

As noted above Hillary changes her positions on issues more often than she changes her pants suits. “Presto” on the last night of the convention, just before Hillary’s acceptance speech, U.S. Flags, chants of U.S.A., a hero soldiers Muslin parents and a retired Four Star General endorsing Hillary appear at the convention (some in the audience attempted to shout down the General and the veterans on stage with him by chanting, “no more wars”).

Based on what is happening in the Democratic Party, the continued existence of some “never Trump” Republicans, the disenchanted Independents and the surprising number of “New” voters all confirm a rising level of anger in America and a willingness to express it. Turmoil in the U.S. electorate is definitely growing.

History has proven repeatedly that when the level of anger in a population reaches a certain point the population “revolts”. It appears that the “revolution” we are beginning to see will not be a “quiet” one. For many months now, everywhere I go I hear people talk, at times loudly and angrily, about politics. Places like the Gym, Dr. and hospital waiting rooms, the place where the locals stop in the morning for a cup of coffee and a biscuit and at other retail businesses. There has always been some level of political discussion in public places but I have never seen it at this level and certainly not as polarized. Many of these people are unshakable in their beliefs and a surprising number, of all ages insist they are going to vote for the first time in their lives (the blue collar males in this group and their spouse/family members are overwhelmingly Trump supporters). Hopefully this “Revolution” will not involve guns, but I am not sure that will be the case based on the level of anger and volatility I am seeing and hearing every day.

Regarding polls, for many years I have noticed that they have not been accurate. I believe there are two reasons for this. One is that some pollsters deliberately skew the results in an effort to influence an election. The second and main reason they are not accurate is the increasing lack of a reliable list of people to be polled who accurately reflect the voters. This is the result of the rapidly increasing number of voters who no longer have a telephone land line. They use cell phones and many of them use the phones to screen their calls to avoid telemarketers (and pollsters). An increasing number of these people also refuse to join groups like political parties or give out their phone number. There is also an increasing number of people who will not acknowledge who they are supporting politically, or will lie about it to avoid controversy, a risk of being ridiculed by family or friends or possibly being black listed at work. Consequently polls today are a good indicator of trends but they do not accurately predict results. Trump is a good example of this. He got more votes in the Republican primary than any Republican candidate in history, even with 16 qualified opponents initially, some of them staying in the race until late in the primary process, yet the polls have consistently shown him to be losing to Hillary.

When I look at everything that happened this week I am even more convinced that Trump will be President, maybe by a vote in the U.S. House like I wrote about last week. Regardless of what Bernie, Gary Johnson, or Jill Stein do the election will come down to Hillary or Trump and Hillary cannot be President! America is on its last step into Socialism/Communism and there is no doubt that Hillary will take us there. I wrote about this here: In November vote and, like him or not, vote for Trump!

Together Obama, Hillary, Gary Johnson and Jill Stein are going to put Trump in the Whitehouse

As with most Democratic societies America basically has a two party political system. Other parties have participated in our national elections from time to time with minimal effect in most cases. Ross Perot was a rare exception to this situation when he took more votes from President Bush (41) than he did from Clinton.

All indications now are that candidates for parties other than the Democrat and Republican parties will have an even bigger effect on this election than Ross Perot did in his run for President in 1992. The current levels of divisiveness, turmoil and anger in America are so high that we will probably see Presidential candidates from the Libertarian and Green Party prevent the Democrat and Republican party candidates from getting 270 Electoral College votes, so the President will not be chosen during the general election. The Obama Administration has deliberately brought us to this place in America with his “Divide and Destroy” strategy for “fundamentally changing America”. I covered the Obama “divide and destroy” strategy in detail in my article last week.

Since Hillary became the pre-ordained Democratic Party candidate the levels of divisiveness, turmoil, and anger in America have increased. She is one of the most divisive candidates in history. On an almost daily basis I hear or read reports of her saying things that are simply not true, and in some instances are irrational. As an example a recent video she made to be played at a meeting of hard Left Progressives. In the video Hillary said that in her first 30 days in office she will issue executive orders and use Government agencies to limit money in politics, which is unconstitutional.  She will also propose a Constitutional Amendment to limit money in politics (apparently she does not even understand how you amend our Constitution). I have followed her political career over the years and I have been amazed every time I heard someone say something like, “yes I know she cannot be trusted” or, “yes I know she is a bad person”, “but I am still going to vote for her”. Or even worse when I hear people angrily deny that she is a liar or cannot be trusted. I detailed how Hillary’s behavior has been questionable during her entire adult life in a recent article.

I am even more amazed that the two leading candidates for President of the United States of America, Hillary and Trump both have unbelievably high ”unfavorable” ratings.   This simply does not make sense on the Republican side since we started with a field of 17 candidates with many of them being highly qualified Presidential candidates. Like Hillary, many people see Trump as a divisive candidate. His emergence as the Republican Party nominee has also fueled an increase in the levels of divisiveness, turmoil and anger in America. However, as I watched Trump in recent weeks and now at the RNC, I am getting much more comfortable with him being president, especially as I see the people he seems to be relying on for advice and support. Recently I heard someone say, “Trump cannot be a micro-manager when you consider how large and widespread his business interests are”. That made a lot of sense to me and reinforced my interest in seeing who he appoints to key positons in his administration. I am especially interested in seeing who he appoints as Attorney General! I am sure it will be someone like Chris Christy and I am so looking forward to seeing the criminal ideologues that have turned the DOJ into the “Department of Injustice” leave the Department like rats deserting a sinking ship. The DOJ and the Supreme Court are key reasons why Hilary cannot be President!

Regarding the RNC, the choice of speakers, and their passion on the first day was outstanding! There were several times when the camera scanned the audience and I saw a lot of people with tears in their eyes, and I must admit there was a time or two when I felt emotional, especially when Sean Smith’s mother was at the podium.

The second night of the RNC carried the convention theme to the next level. Trump sailed to an easy victory in the final nominating process, Chris Christy reinforced my hope that he is the next Attorney General and Donald Trump Jr. sounded a lot like a successful future President. As I have watched all of Trump’s adult children during the campaign I have been very impressed at the poise and grace they all have in public and what a close knit family they are. That tells me a lot about the real and private Donald Trump.

Night 3 at the RNC. Patriotism is alive and well in America!  Laura Ingram NAILED IT!  Single mother of three adopted kids and successful. Her story is working class blue collar to success in America if you are willing to be ethical and work for it. Attempted flag burner (communist party member) arrested for attempting to “incite a riot”! Yea for the Cleveland police and all the law enforcement agencies that are helping them!!!!!!!! What an amazing job they have done!

Great closing night! Great convention!  This convention was a perfect example of how professional business people do things. Great job by the city of Cleveland, especially their Law Enforcement people! Let’s see if the DNC and Philadelphia can match it?

With Hillary and Trump being the Democrat and Republican nominees, and Bernie (an avowed Socialist) almost being the Democrat nominee, it opens up the possibility for Gary Johnson and Jill Stein to have an impact on the Presidential election process. Note: Johnson publicly acknowledges that he regularly smokes pot and Stein is even more “deranged” than Bernie

Gary Johnson’s record as Governor of New Mexico is mixed. He had some success and some failure over his 8 years in office. He has been totally unsuccessful in his past presidential efforts. However he is a favorite of many Millennials. Millennials are loosely defined as being between the ages of 18 and 34 and are now the largest segment of the U.S. population. I recently had a conversation with a young man who is intelligent, highly educated and has a good job and work history. He does not advocate “free stuff” and he strongly supports Gary Johnson. He even went so far as to say that if Johnson is not elected he is going to give up on politics! I think he is one example of how diverse Millennials can be. This diversity is one of the reasons that I believe Johnson and Stein will have a major effect on this election. Johnson is currently polling high enough to almost earn a spot in the Presidential debates and is slowly moving up. Getting a spot in the debates would dramatically increase his strength in the general election.

Jill Stein is the “Green Party” candidate. As noted earlier she is even more “deranged” than Bernie. Here is the opening statement of her “Power to the People Plan”, which is posted on the party website. The details of this plan are posted on that website below the opening statement. They are frightening and irrational.

“My Power to the People Plan creates deep system change, moving from the greed and exploitation of corporate capitalism to a human-centered economy that puts people, planet and peace over profit.

It offers direct answers to the economic, social, and ecological crises brought on by both corporate political parties. And it empowers the American people to fix our broken political system and make real the promise of democracy.

This plan will end unemployment and poverty; avert climate catastrophe; build a sustainable, just economy; and recognize the dignity and human rights of everyone in our society and our world. The power to create this new world is not in our hopes, it’s not in our dreams – it’s in our hands.”

Her plan reminds me of the “UN Agenda 21” plan for “One World Order” (recently renamed “New world Order”). Unfortunately it looks like many of the “free stuff Bernie” voters will move over to support her. She even issued a statement saying that she would step aside if Bernie would take her place on the Green Party ticket, which he declined, I expect grudgingly. If enough Bernie supporters and Hollywood environmentalist move over to support her she also could earn a spot on the Presidential debate stage, which would dramatically increase her standing in the general election.

If the diverse Millennials split their votes among the four candidates, like it appears they will, it will prevent Hillary and Trump from getting 270 Electoral College votes, which will send the Presidential and Vice Presidential election to the U.S.Congress.

We just got two more reasons why most Bernie supporters will support candidates other than Hillary or simply not vote. The reasons are her selection of Kaine as her running mate and the latest wikileaks document release. Kaine is an “establishment” Democrat with strong ties to Wall Street and the new wikileaks documents reconfirm that the DNC  rigged the Democrat primary for Hillary. Bernie supporters are planning to protest at the DNC this week.

This brings us to the Electoral College, what it is and why we have it. It is a process, not a place. The Founding Fathers were faced with an unworkable situation regarding electing a President and Vice President. At the time of the Constitutional Convention America had 13 large and small states spread over an area from the top of the Eastern sea coast to the bottom, with an estimated population of 4,000,000. There were very little means of transportation or communication between the states. There were also no national political parties and political campaigning on a national level was not even in anyone’s thought process at the time. The Electoral College was created during the Constitutional Convention in 1787 to overcome these problems. The electoral votes were also “weighted” so the smaller state’s desires were not constantly overwhelmed by the larger states. The Electoral College process was amended by the 12th Amendment in 1804 to make it more workable with the rise of national political parties. Many people question why the Electoral College exist today and would prefer a simple popular vote process for electing our President and Vice President. It would take another Constitutional Amendment to make this change, which will not happen in today’s political environment. So to be elected President in America a candidate must earn enough popular votes, especially in  key states, to earn 270 Electoral College votes.

If no Candidate earns 270 Electoral College votes, the U. S. House of Representatives will elect the President and the U.S. Senate elects the Vice president.

The US House of Representatives chooses the President with each state having only one vote (the representatives do not get an individual vote). The House will consider only the three candidates who got the most votes in the general election.

The US Senate chooses the Vice President with each Senator casting a single vote for one of the two candidates who got the most votes.

Regardless of what happens to the House and Senate in this General Election the Constitutionally required time period for them to choose the President and Vice President means it will be the current Republican House and Senate that elect the President and Vice President. Trump will be President and Pence will be Vice President.

Remember, the next President will choose replacements for 3 to 5 of the 9 Supreme Court Justices! That will determine what America will be like for future generations.
