Donald Trump To Be Sworn In Using Two Bibles


President-elect Donald Trump will be sworn into office using two Bibles — one belonging to Abraham Lincoln, and the other a gift from his mom, the inaugural committee announced Tuesday.

“In his first inaugural address, President Lincoln appealed to the ‘better angels of our nature,’” committee chair Tom Barrack said in a statement.

“As he takes the same oath of office 156 years later, President-elect Trump is humbled to place his hand on Bibles that hold special meaning both to his family and to our country,” Barrack added….

Trump’s family Bible was given to him on June 12, 1955, by his mother when he graduated from Sunday Church Primary School at First Presbyterian Church in Queens. NYPost

Girl Scouts: Stand With Your Values! Boycott Trump’s Inauguration

The announcement that Girl Scouts would march at Donald Trump’s inauguration prompted calls for a boycott, a twitter storm, and a petition on MoveOn.

Leftist and MoveOn (Soros funded organization) is now harassing children and the groups they are involved with.

Leftist need to learn to think logically and stop with the label throwing.

Girl Scouts statement:

Inauguration Day: Reflecting on Girl Scouts’ History of Civic Action

On Friday, January 20, approximately 75 Girl Scouts from the Nation’s Capital council will voluntarily march in the 2017 Presidential Inaugural Parade, as the council has done over the past 100 years. As part of this unique experience, these girls will gain insight into the time-honored democratic tradition of a peaceful transition of power. Then, the very next day, Saturday, January 21, women and girls, including Girl Scouts, from across the country will descend on Washington to participate in the Women’s March and similar events in communities across the country.

At Girl Scouts, our Movement is made up of individuals who hold political beliefs and convictions as varied as our nation itself. And because every girl has a home at Girl Scouts, every girl in our Movement is allowed her own ideas, opinions, beliefs, and political ideology. Our fundamental value is empowering girls to be leaders in their own lives. By helping them build the courage, confidence, and character to lift their voices, champion their views, and be advocates for the issues and ideas important to them, Girl Scouts supports girls as they become catalysts for change who strengthen their communities.

Of course, we are a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that by law cannot take positions on political candidates or parties—and we take this very seriously.  Girl Scouts

Trump Hails ‘Great’ Brexit And Backs Speedy UK Trade Deal

Now Britain will not have to go to the “back of the queue” after voting for Brexit.

US President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday hailed Brexit as “a great thing” and backed a speedy trade agreement with Britain, in an interview with The Times newspaper.

He also forecast that other countries would follow Britain’s lead in voting to leave the European Union.

“Brexit is going to end up being a great thing,” Trump said of Britain’s referendum vote last June to leave the European Union.

The president-elect said a trade deal with Britain would be “good for both sides”.

“Absolutely, very quickly. I’m a big fan of the UK, we’re gonna work very hard to get it done quickly and done properly,” said Trump, confirming he will meet British Prime Minister Theresa May soon after his inauguration on January 20.

His enthusiasm for a bilateral deal will be welcomed by the British government, which in recent months has been searching for possible trade partners following its planned departure from the EU. London AFP

Israeli-Settler Leaders Invited To Attend Trump Inauguration

Interesting invite.

In a sign of the different attitude of US President-elect Donald Trump, the West Bank settlers’ council said Friday it has been invited to send a delegation to the presidential inauguration next week.

It said that Oded Revivi, chairman of the Yesha settlers’ council, will lead the delegation. He will be joined by Benny Kasriel, mayor of Ma’aleh Adumim, a large settlement next to Jerusalem.

This comes three weeks after the Obama administration failed to veto a UN resolution condemning Israeli settlements, a move Israel bitterly condemned. Consecutive US administrations have called the settlements an obstacle to peace, saying they undermine the possibility of a two state solution.

Revivi said the invitation is a “clear indication” that the new administration understands the importance of his group. He says he is looking forward to working “with our new friends in the White House.”

Trump has appointed David Friedman, a Jewish-American lawyer with close ties to the settlement movement, as his ambassador to Israel. Trump also has vowed to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a step the Palestinians strongly oppose.  TimesOfIsrael

What next from the anti-democracy leftist?

Since 1988 when George H.W. Bush won the election Democrats have refused to accept the results of any election that did not go their way and have created myths as to why Republicans won.
Myth: Leftist claim George H. W. Bush won the election with racist ads.

Democrats and leftist attribute their consistent inability to win elections to conspiratorial forces and use made up fairy tales and myths as proof.  Instead of examining the person they choose to run in the election and how the campaign was run, they instead play the blame game.  What the leftist are doing now is much more than a blame game.  It also leaves them open to a tremendous amount of ridicule.

What the leftist are doing over this presidential election is about de-legitimizing Trump.  Questioning presidential legitimacy, these consistent myths is a much more damaging attack.  These de-legitimizing attacks against President-elect Trump are more than just another smear.   They are denying the legal authority of an elected president to hold office.  They are practicing political secession, a threat to the government system and an attack on democracy.

Publix Places Censor Shields On National Enquirer Magazine with President-elect Trump On The Cover

Unbelievable.  January 20th, 2017 Donald Trump will be our president, some people need to get over it.

A Publix shopper turned to Four in Your Corner after seeing magazines with President-elect Donald Trump’s picture being covered at the grocery store.

He was shopping at the Publix on Del Prado Boulevard and Kismet Parkway in Cape Coral. “I lift it up and there was a picture of Donald Trump, the President-elect. I was like ‘Wow, really? I mean, what’s next?’” Walter Indyk said….

…Indyk called the Manager, who he said told him they got a lot of complaints about having the magazine there, and it was a corporate-wide decision.

Four in Your Corner reached out to Publix corporate office. A spokesperson said in a statement, in part:

“The National Enquirer receives the most customer complaints about front page content, so they were added to the list of magazines required to be covered, just last week.”  WFTX

Magazine readers drive coverage of Trump reported Bloomberg last September.

“Our readers have a great affection and fondness for Donald Trump,” editor-in-chief Dylan Howard said in a recent interview. “It’s a readership that is disenfranchised. They do not like the political establishment. They see Donald Trump as someone who will champion their cause, just like the National Enquirer has championed their cause for many decades.”…

Howard said that not long ago the Enquirer conducted an extensive poll of its readers’ political preferences. The results came back overwhelmingly in favor of Trump. “My duty is to my readers,” said Howard. “I made the decision to endorse Donald Trump. Nobody influences the editorial decision-making process at the National Enquirer other than myself and our editors. We have not been told, at any point, to go easy on Mr. Trump.”

Donald Trump Wins Electoral College – Attempts To Cause Rebellion Turn To Farce With Democrats Deserting Hillary

Temper Tantrums – Failed
Rioting and smashing up cities – Failed
Sending death threats to electors – Failed
Jill Stein’s recount – Failed
Russians – Failing as no proof
Trying to fiddle with the Electoral College – Failed

What next?
President-elect Donald Trump gets to win a lot – general election, recounts…

Begin with the argument that the Founders intended the Electoral College to act as a final quality control review board to weed out unfit demagogues – that is, Donald Trump.  This is a complete lie, though some pundits quote Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist 68 in support of this “final judge,” argument, an argument lacking any legal standing.

The Constitution stipulates only a single qualification – electors cannot at the time of their vote hold federal office (Article II, Section 1).  Nothing is said about age, experience, background, or any other trait implying an ability to reject the unworthy.  Especially relevant, there has never been any effort to enshrine this talent into laws.  Picking judicious, independent-minded electors is a non-issue.  The opposite is true – electors overwhelmingly tend to be party stalwarts. AmericanThinker

Most of the “faithless” electors were Hillary Clinton defectors in Washington state, with three voting for former secretary of State Colin Powell and one for Faith Spotted Eagle.

Donald Trump officially crossed the line to 270 electoral votes with electors in Texas casting a ballot for the Republican shortly before 5:30 p.m. EST.

Calls for Trump to be voted down by members of the Electoral College were roundly ignored on Monday – with only two ‘faithless’ Republican electors rejecting the president-elect and four deserting Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Several more electors tried to ditch the Democratic loser, in an effort to pressure Republicans into doing the same and selecting a more moderate GOP president.

Trump applauded his victory when that scheme didn’t work and flaunted it in front of the media.

‘Today marks a historic electoral landslide victory in our nation’s democracy,’ he said in a statement to reporters. ‘I thank the American people for their overwhelming vote to elect me as their next President of the United States.’

‘The official votes cast by the Electoral College exceeded the 270 required to secure the presidency by a very large margin, far greater than ever anticipated by the media,’ he added.

Congress will certify the Electoral College vote on January 6 and Trump will be sworn in on January 20.  DailyMail

Colorado Craziness

Colorado’s nine Democratic electors have cast their votes for Democrat Hillary Clinton after one person was removed from the panel.

Secretary of State Wayne Williams said Michael Baca was replaced after he voted for another candidate. He was swapped for another person who did vote for Clinton, who won the general election in Colorado.

Baca’s lawyer tried to prevent him from being dismissed and some people in the audience at the state Capitol booed the decision. Williams has referred Baca to Attorney General Cynthia Coffman.

The vote was also delayed by a last minute fight over what oath electors had to take before casting their votes. The new oath makes it easier to charge anyone who doesn’t vote for the election winner with perjury. Judge Starrs ruled that the so-called “faithless electors” could argue against the oath on Jan. 17, but not today.

The electors pursued that case all the way to the Colorado Supreme Court, which denied a hearing. 9News  Video of craziness at 9News

Allegations Totally Unsupported That The Russians Interfered In Our Election

Update:  The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has written to the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, asking why this week’s reports by the CIA that Russia did hack Democratic campaign documents contradicts what the agency was saying three weeks ago.  DailyMail

The overseers of the U.S. intelligence community have not embraced a CIA assessment that Russian cyber attacks were aimed at helping Republican President-elect Donald Trump win the 2016 election, three American officials said on Monday.

While the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) does not dispute the CIA’s analysis of Russian hacking operations, it has not endorsed their assessment because of a lack of conclusive evidence that Moscow intended to boost Trump over Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, said the officials, who declined to be named.

What next?  Russians!

The FBI is saying the evidence is not there. Some have suggested this is about voting machines, there is no proof of that,  This is the hack of the DNC emails.  The Russian bit was claimed by the media before the election so we factored or didn’t factor that into our vote.  The mainstream media then claimed the leaks lost Clinton the election because of “Russia”, while still never acknowledging the truths the leaks reveal.

“I don’t understand the argument itself,” the Tucker Carlson Tonight and Daily Caller founder stated. “I don’t think anyone dismisses the that Russia was hacking servers or email accounts in the United States. They’ve done if for years, and so have the Chinese.”

“The question is did that sway the election results, and if it did, how so exactly?” he then posed. “The allegation appears to be they hacked John Podesta’s emails. By the way, that’s not proved. They’re claiming it is, but it’s not.  DailyCaller

The CIA is acting in a highly politicized manner.  The objective seems to be to discrediting the results of the 2016 election and delegitimize the presidency of Donald Trump by creating a myth that Trump as elected by Russian influence.   Did agents at the CIA concluded anything or was it a political figure at the CIA who reached the conclusion about Russia and the election?

The Democratic party and the CIA are giving Russia what it wants – to discredit the institutions of democratic elections.

I touched on this in a post yesterday, but today the Washington Post has a story titled FBI and CIA give differing accounts to lawmakers on Russia’s motives in 2016 hacks. Continue reading “Allegations Totally Unsupported That The Russians Interfered In Our Election”

Activist Who Served On George Soros-Financed Boards Behind Electoral College Votes Scheme

George Soros is an enemy of Democracy.  He has been paying people for years to overthrow our constitutional form of government.

Harvard law professor and progressive activist Larry Lessig has announced that he is teaming up with a California-based law firm to offer “free and confidential” legal services to any members of the Electoral College who will vote against President-elect Donald Trump in violation of state law.

Lessig, a one-time presidential candidate, has served on the boards of numerous groups financed by billionaire George Soros.

Lessig’s Electoral College scheme, which is being called the Electors Trust, is a last-ditch effort to stop Trump from becoming president.

It comes after a petition drive by the Soros-funded activist organization sought to abolish the Electoral College altogether.

Lessig’s project also follows the largely failed recount efforts of Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who was aided by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Breitbart News reported that the lawyer representing Clinton’s recount efforts, Marc Elias, recently led legal battles against state voting laws with an infusion of funding from Soros.  Breitbart

Federal Judge Halts Michigan Recount – Jill Stein Has No Legal Standing

Michigan law does not support a recount based on Jill’s fairy tail and her grandstanding for whoever is paying her.   If Jill Stein and the left were actually worried about election fraud they’d be more concerned about voter ID.

This is nothing but an attempt by leftists to delegitimize the presidency of Donald Trump and an opportunity for Stein to add to her coffers.

A federal judge on Wednesday halted the hand recount of 4.8 million ballots cast for president in Michigan, concluding there’s no real evidence of foul play and there’s no valid reason to continue the recount.

In his eight-page opinion, U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith said “there is no basis” for him to ignore a state court ruling that said the recount should never had started. He was referring to the Michigan Court of Appeals 3-0 ruling, which said that Green Party Candidate Jill Stein, who requested the recount, never had a shot at winning with her fourth-place finish and 1% of the vote, and therefore was not an aggrieved candidate.

Goldsmith’s ruling also bolstered some arguments that were repeatedly made by the Michigan Republican Party: that there was never any evidence that hacking or fraud occurred at the polls, and that  Michigan’s voting system is so secure that not even the “Gremlins, Martians or Russian hackers” could tamper with it. That argument appeared to carry some weight with the  judge.

“To date, plaintiffs have not presented evidence of tampering or mistake. Instead, they present speculative claims going to the vulnerability of the voting machinery — but not actual injury,”  Goldsmith wrote, adding the potential for fraud is not enough to continue to allow the recount to proceed.  Detroit Free Press

National Review — From Victims to Victimizers: The Left’s Long Journey

This is a good read.

The Left now pushes against civil rights in its ignorant search for the new struggle.

When all the good civil-right issues have been largely won, go after Christian bakers, celibate nuns, and girls in locker rooms.

In the vast tsunami of leftist grief that has washed over the land in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s shocking presidential victory, no flotsam has been as prevalent as Hollywood gliterrati weeping and screaming and gnashing their teeth while donning only the most stylish and expensive sackcloth. Most recently, near-sextuagenarian Madonna lamented, “I was devastated, surprised, in shock. I haven’t really had a good night’s sleep since he has been elected. We’re f***ed.” …

And the Left had to go searching for a new civil-rights struggle with which to cram conservatives back into their “victimizer” cubbyhole.

There was, however, one problem: All the good civil-rights issues have been dealt with already. And so the Left, which focuses all of its efforts on social issues, was relegated to pushing crime-increasing myths about the evils of cops; the celebrities were forced to pretend that men peeing next to women was the next great Martin Luther King, Jr.–style struggle; Democrats were forced to march on their next target, not merely church involvement in state, but private beliefs of churchgoers.
