Celebrating Trump’s First Year: Why The Libs Never Saw Him Coming and Why They Still Don’t Understand What Happened

November 8, 2017

Donald Trump

One year ago yesterday on Huffingtonpost.com

The HuffPost presidential forecast model gives Democrat Hillary Clinton a 98.2 percent chance of winning the presidency. Republican Donald Trump has essentially no path to an Electoral College victory.

Clinton’s win will be substantial, but not overwhelming. The model projects that she’ll garner 323 electoral votes to Trump’s 215. 

For all of 2016’s craziness, that projection actually follows a fairly traditional electoral map. Trump should keep Arizona and Georgia, even though Clinton is likely to make it a closer-than-usual race. Iowa also seems firmly in Trump’s column. All three states are more than 85 percent likely to remain red.

Florida, Nevada and North Carolina have leaned toward Clinton in the polling averages.

The forecast in recent weeks, along with the strength of early voting numbers, makes it seem very likely that these will stay with her. All three states are more than 80-percent likely to swing Democratic. New Hampshire polls have wavered recently, but the

HuffPost model still predicts those four electoral votes will go to Clinton with more than 90 percent certainty. And Clinton should fairly easily hold onto Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

That leaves Ohio as the last critical state. It’s the closest in the race, according to the HuffPost forecast model. Trump leads by just 1 point, and the polling trend has moved toward the GOP in the last few weeks. The HuffPost model gives Trump about a 70 percent chance of winning the state. In the event that Clinton’s ground game stimulates turnout and pulls Ohio in her direction ― which is not out of the question ― she’ll get 341 electoral votes.     

Maine’s 2nd Congressional District and Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District could defy their states’ trends, but there’s no substantial polling information to indicate whether that will happen. In the absence of data, I’m choosing not to split them in projections.

Third-party candidates aren’t likely to be a factor. Independent Evan McMullin will probably take a sizable share of the vote in Utah, but not enough to beat Trump. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has been polling at 5 percent or less on average. And Green Party nominee Jill Stein isn’t likely to pull much of the vote in the states where she’s on the ballot.

Huff ‘n Puff was not the only Liberal Website to get the 2016 Presidential Election wrong.

Liberal Darling Nate Silver predicted it wrong as well on his FiveThirtyEight.com Website.

He called for it to shake down as follows:

Hillary Clinton – 71.4%

Donald J. Trump – 28.6 %

In an article titled, “There Really Was A Liberal Media Bubble, which Silver wrote as a part of as series titled “The Real Story of 2016”, in an attempt to explain why he and the rest of the Liberal Political Pundits got the Presidential Election so wrong, he wrote…

All things considered, then, the conditions of political journalism are poor for crowd wisdom and ripe for groupthink.

Well…duuuhhh.

Silver first gained public recognition for developing PECOTA, a system for forecasting the performance and career development of Major League Baseball players, which he sold to and then managed for Baseball Prospectus from 2003 to 2009.

Which explains why his current poll of President Donald J. Trump’s popularity reads…

56.8% Disapprove

37.6% Approve

Meanwhile…

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-six percent (56%) disapprove.

Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States of America one year ago today with 46% of the vote.

Not exactly the precipitous drop in popularity in his first year in office that the same Liberal Political Pundits who never saw his election coming in the first place claim that there is, huh?

But, I digress…

One year into the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, the gaping maw that is America’s Political Division remains as cavernous as ever.

While the News Organizations and Political Pundits who inhabit the never-ending metropolitan areas of the East and Left Coasts and the “Beltway” insist, as “some old Lib” named Phil Donahue did last July, that,

This is the darkest political moment in American History.

Those of us who live in America’s Heartland, between the coasts, could not be happier with the choice we made on November 8th, 2016 as Fox News Commentator and Radio Host Todd Starnes, now a New Yorker, witnessed.

Liberals who seem to spend their entire day on Social Media posting fake news stories, pulling “facts” out of their hindquarters, and posting anything and everything that they can, in order to attempt to remove President Trump from office, are probably in diabetic shock from consuming too many Cheetos and donuts in their Mom’s basement, as they attempt to comprehend what I am writing.

Here’s the deal, Snowflakes…

None of these fake news stories, Democrat-heavy polls, and photoshopped pictures and stupid Occupy Democrat Memes on Facebook are making any difference to average Americans.

The Democrats, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and Left Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, effectively divorced themselves from the people whom they claimed in every previous election cycle to “love”…Average Working Class Americans.

Yet still, they expect us to believe the Fake News which they are desperately trying to distribute in a vain attempt get Trump out of office, and which you Liberal Trolls are posting on Social Media ad nauseam, so that they and you, in your shared madness can get a do-over and Hillary Clinton will somehow miraculously become the President.

Americans do not care what the Main Stream Media…or you…think.

They are the Propaganda Arm and you are their unpaid (usually) stable boys and girls.

They produce it and you shovel it.

To put it mildly and in Marital Terms, which even you can understand, Average Working Class Americans and the Democratic Party are no longer “evenly yoked”.

The Democrats became the party of the “Upper Crust” and Special Interest Groups, who look down their noses at Americans who live here in “Flyover Country”.

The Democrats assumed, after reading their own press clippings, that all Americans wanted  and somehow, still want, the Progressive/Marxist Political Ideology and style of governance which Barack Hussein Obama practiced during his time as President.

Well, we all know what assuming does, don’t we, Snowflakes?

The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we had suffered under for the last 8 years on November 8th.

The Oxford Dictionaries define the word “mandate” as

the authority to carry out a policy or course of action, regarded as given by the electorate to a candidate or party that is victorious in an election.

Guess what, Democratic Elite, George Soros, Barack Hussein Obama, Main Stream Media, Facebook and Internet Trolls, Hollywood Celebrities, and the rest of you still throwing a National Temper Tantrum?

Trump won! Therefore, he does have a mandate.

And, average Americans, the “Deplorables” between the coasts whom the Democrats continue to insult and ridicule on a daily basis, still support and appreciate president Donald J. Trump.

Because it is evident by the lowest Unemployment Rate since 2000 that President Donald J. Trump is working hard to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

Kleenex, Libs?

Until He Comes,

Fox’s Fourth in a Row: Eric Bolling Suspended Over Unproven “Sexual Misconduct” Claim (A KJ Analysis)

August 6, 2017

140926-eric-bolling-11a_34374f78183493c378293062f2f2c04d.nbcnews-ux-2880-1000

“Criticizing Fox News has nothing to do with criticizing the press. Fox News is not a news organization. It is the de facto leader of the GOP, and it is long past time that it is treated as such by the media, elected officials and the public.” – David Brock, Founder, Media Matters for America (www.mediamatters.org)

The Associated Press reported yesterday that

Fox News said Saturday that it has suspended Eric Bolling, co-host of its late-afternoon news program “The Specialists,” while it investigates allegations he sent a lewd photo to co-workers. Word of the suspension came one day after a HuffPost report relying on anonymous sources stated Bolling had sent a lewd photo to at least three female colleagues at Fox News and Fox Business.

“Eric Bolling has been suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway,” Fox News said in a brief statement.

An attorney for Bolling, Michael J. Bowe, denied the allegations.

“The anonymous, uncorroborated claims are untrue and terribly unfair,” Bowe wrote in an email Saturday. “We intend to fully cooperate with the investigation so that it can be concluded and Eric can return to work as quickly as possible.”

Bolling is the best-known personality on “The Fox News Specialists,” a program that airs weekdays at 5 p.m. EDT. The show replaced the network’s series “The Five” in April. He also hosts the weekend show “Cashin’ In.”

He joined Fox News in 2008 after working as a commodities trader, according to his bio on the network’s website.

A vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, Bolling wrote a March op-ed accusing House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, and establishment Republicans of betraying the president with their version of a plan to overhaul the nation’s health system.

The suspension is the latest in a string of sexual harassment complaints against personalities who appear on Fox News and Fox Business Network. In July, Fox Business host Charles Payne was suspended after the Los Angeles Times reported based on anonymous sources that he harassed a female political analyst.

Payne remains suspended while an investigation into the allegations continues.

Other allegations were leveled against Fox News’ former star, Bill O’Reilly, who was fired in April after several women reported being harassed by the host.

The network’s founding leader, Roger Ailes, resigned in July 2016 because of harassment allegations. He died in May after a fall at his home.

Bolling’s suspension came on the heels of a defamation lawsuit filed last Tuesday against Fox by a private investigator. The lawsuit accuses the network of making up quotes and pushing a false story that benefits Trump, even inviting the chief executive into the editorial process.

Both Fox and the Trump administration denied the lawsuit’s claims. Fox called it “completely erroneous” to suggest it drove the story to distract from the Russia investigation. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president had no knowledge of the false story before it was posted.

First O’Reilly, then Hannity, then Charles Payne, now Eric Bolling.

What has now happened all four of these Fox News Personalities is not a new Liberal Strategy.

Way back on March 7, 2012, I reported that…

In their unfettered zeal to get rid of one of the most effective barriers to the re-election of their false messiah and the continued existence of the political status quo, Liberals in both political parties and the Main Stream Media have launched a Liberal Blitzkrieg against Rush Limbaugh over his comments concerning Professional Activist Sandra Fluke.

What’s a Blitzkrieg, you ask?

Per historylearningsite.co.uk:

Blitzkrieg means “lightning war”. Blitzkrieg was first used by the Germans in World War Two and was a tactic based on speed and surprise and needed a military force to be based around light tank units supported by planes and infantry (foot soldiers). The tactic was developed in Germany by an army officer called Hans Guderian. He had written a military pamphlet called “Achtung Panzer” which got into the hands of Hitler. As a tactic it was used to devastating effect in the first years of World War Two and resulted in the British and French armies being pushed back in just a few weeks to the beaches of Dunkirk and the Russian army being devastated in the attack on Russia in June 1941.

Rush not only won that particular war, his listenership has continued to grow since then.

The message of Conservatism is not easily silenced.

However, if at first you don’t succeed…

Try, try again…like they are doing with their campaign against the Fox News Channel.

When this attack against Fox News Anchors began, I asked why did over 50 advertisers, all of the sudden, decide to pull out from sponsoring The O’Reilly Factor?

Another Former Fox News Host, Glenn Beck,  at the time, had what he claimed was evidence as to who the culprit was, which he revealed on his radio program.

TheBlaze.com reports that

An email obtained by conservative radio host Glenn Beck suggests that progressive media watchdog group Media Matters orchestrated the advertiser exodus from embattled Fox News host Bill O’Reilly’s program.

“For years,” the email begins, “Bill O’Reilly has been one of the worst purveyors of misinformation on Fox News. A serial misinformer, pushing many of the most extreme, sexist, racist, homophobic, and xenophobic conservative theories on TV.”

The correspondence was written by Mary Pat Bonner, president of the Bonner Group.  According to the New York Times, Bonner served as a “donor adviser” to former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Through her firm, Bonner connects big money donors to liberal groups seeking donations. Bonner’s contracts give her company a sizable commission — around 12.5 percent — on any money she brings in. In addition to Clinton, the Bonner Group has also advised Media Matters and the American Bridge super PAC.

“The Bonner Group gets us the best fundraising product for the lowest cost,” David Brock, founder of Media Matters and American Bridge, told the Times. “In my experience, the commission incentivizes the fundraiser to meet the ambitious goals we set.”

In the email, which was sent April 13, Bonner heralds the success of her firm and Media Matters’ “advertiser education campaign” against O’Reilly.

“We are currently at a critical juncture in this campaign,” she wrote, before inviting recipients to join a couple of “update calls” on Thursday and Friday.

Bonner’s email was revealed just hours after one of O’Reilly’s lawyers, Marc Kasowitz, claimed that the Fox anchor “has been subjected to a brutal campaign of character assassination that is unprecedented in post-McCarthyist America.”

“This law firm has uncovered evidence that the smear campaign is being orchestrated by far-left organizations bent on destroying O’Reilly for political and financial reasons,” he continued. “That evidence will be put forth shortly and it is irrefutable.”

Dozens of advertisers have pulled their commercials from O’Reilly’s 8 p.m. time slot in the weeks since the Times reported that O’Reilly and 21st Century Fox, Fox News’ parent company, have settled to the tune of $13 million with at least five women who have accused the network host of sexual harassment.

And according to Media Matters, the number of brands that have shifted ads away from “The O’Reilly Factor” has topped 80, “with dozens more quietly taking the action or keeping them off in the first place.”

Angelo Carusone, president of Media Matters,  said “many expect more women will come forward” with allegations against O’Reilly. He also asserted Fox News Co-President Bill Shine “will go too.” Carusone offered no evidence to support either claim.

“What’s happening now is a giant smear campaign, and they work,” Beck said on his radio program Wednesday morning, later adding that the left is “splitting the conservative movement and they’re taking the bear out of the door.”

The Wall Street Journal, which is owned by News Corp, a media conglomeration founded by Fox News CEO Rupert Murdoch, reported Tuesday night that the news network is preparing to sever ties with O’Reilly.

The Journal’s report comes the week after news broke that 21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch was reportedly ready to cut O’Reilly, who is on vacation until April 24. However, at the time, Rupert Murdoch, James’ father, and 21st Century Fox Co-Chairman Lachlan Murdoch, James’ older brother, were “more inclined” to stand by the host.

But now it appears the Murdochs are nearing a unanimous decision. And in Beck’s mind, it’s all about money — not principles.

“They’re making the decision based on money, and money has nothing to do with principle,” he said, after earlier telling listeners he “would not be saying this if I had personal information” that the accusations against O’Reilly were true.

If the harassment claims end up being true, Beck said he would be “highly disappointed” with O’Reilly. “If there is evidence that something happened, that’s something different,” he said.

As goofy as Beck has become, he could still be considered an expert on the character of Bill O’Reilly, as he and O’Reilly used to go on tour a few years back with a two man show, much like O’Reilly and Comedian/Political Pundit Dennis Miller have been doing the last few years.

If the 6’4″ O’Reilly had actually been sexually harassing co-workers and program guests, then he certainly deserved to be given the boot from the Murdochs.

However, now we have four unsubstantiated claims of sexual misconduct against top Fox News Network Stars.

Let’s take a look at this from a political angle shall we, boys and girls?

Bill O’Reilly propelled Fox News to it’s former position as the Number One Cable News Network in America. He was the Top Dog at Fox and the King of the Night Time News Programs for over two decades.

If you were the Far Left Vanguard at Media Matters and their Benefactor, Former Nazi Stool Pigeon, George Soros, and you wanted to take down Fox News and silence or at least damage the Conservative Message that it brings into millions of American Homes every night, what would you do?

Wouldn’t you try to get its Number One Program off the air?

And, having accomplished that, wouldn’t you then try to go after its number two Program host, Hannity?

And having failed at that, wouldn’t you try again…and again…to try to destroy Fox News’ credibility?

Because, after all, the message of Conservatism is not easily silenced, so…

If you can’t silence the message, silence the messenger.

MoveOn.org, Media Matters, and George Soros are already in the midst of an all-out war in their attempt to drive President Donald J. Trump out of office by any means necessary.

In fact, they already tried using allegations of sexual impropriety against him during the Presidential Campaign…and failed miserably.

Given their track record, the allegations that Glenn Beck made and the conclusion which I am drawing of a conspiracy do not seem far-fetched at all.

Who will Soros and his minions go after next…Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, or Tucker Carlson?

Ronald Reagan, during an interview with Mike Wallace on 12/14/75, quipped…

“You know, someone very profoundly once said many years ago that if fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.”

Darned if he wasn’t right.

Until He Comes,
