Something Happened That Protests Won’t Fix

The blurb on this episode of Bill Whittle’s Right Angle YouTube series says:

Well, after their monumental defeat, the Progressives will accept the election results with grace and dignity and learn from their mistakes… in a pig’s eye. No, they are going to hit back and they will hit back HARD.

It’s a good conversation, wide-ranging, as they discuss the consequences of this election. If I recall correctly, Scott Ott was not in favor of Donald Trump, but he abhorred what a Hillary Clinton presidency would have done to us. She would not have served as the center/leans Right Chief Executive her husband did. We would have had our very own Castro in drag. And she would have preserved Barack Obama’s miserable “legacy” of racism, rule by diktat, and continuing divisiveness. People like the Baron and me would have been shut down — as she repeatedly warned.

But as Bill and his co-host, Scott Ott, note all the protests in the world won’t change the results of the election. Donald Trump won. GET.OVER.IT.SNOWFLAKES

Meanwhile, Trump is busy assigning new people. I haven’t looked at them closely yet, though I do know some already. Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon don’t need the approval of the Senate to serve as part of Trump’s staff. Priebus is the ultimate insider. While I think he did not serve the GOP well at all during Romney’s presidential run, this may be the perfect match between a job and an employee’s skill set. He knows Washington inside out; he knows who not to know and who to cultivate. Steve Bannon is the iconoclast. He took over Breitbart News and did a great job: outposts in Jerusalem and the U.K. The non-dissident Right likes the cut of his jib. The Left? Well, here’s The Hollywood Reporter, being relatively reasonable (it may be that the interviewer knew Bannon in his old Hollywood days):

The liberal firewall against Trump was, most of all, the belief that the Republican contender was too disorganized, outlandish, outré and lacking in nuance to run a proper political campaign. That view was only confirmed when Bannon, editor of the outlandish and outré Breitbart News Network, took over the campaign in August. Now Bannon is arguably the most powerful person on the new White House team, embodying more than anyone the liberals’ awful existential pain and fury: How did someone so wrong — not just wrong, but inappropriate, unfit and “loathsome,” according to The New York Times — get it so spot-on right?

In these dark days for Democrats, Bannon has become the blackest hole.

“Darkness is good,” says Bannon, who amid the suits surrounding him at Trump Tower, looks like a graduate student in his T-shirt, open button-down and tatty blue blazer — albeit a 62-year-old graduate student. “Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power. It only helps us when they” — I believe by “they” he means liberals and the media, already promoting calls for his ouster — “get it wrong. When they’re blind to who we are and what we’re doing.”

On that precise point, The New York Times, in a widely circulated article, will describe this day at Trump Tower as a scene of “disarray” for the transition team. In fact, it’s all hands on: Mike Pence, the vice president-elect and transition chief, and Reince Priebus, the new chief of staff, shuttling between full conference rooms; Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and by many accounts his closest advisor, conferring in the halls; Sen. Jeff Sessions in and out of meetings on the transition team floor; Rudy Giuliani upstairs with Trump (overheard: “Is the boss meeting- meeting with Rudy or just shooting the [breeze]?”), and Bannon with a long line of men and women outside his corner office. If this is disarray, it’s a peculiarly focused and organized kind.

If you like the airy, gossipy kind of tell-all, read the rest of that Hollywood Reporter interview with Bannon. They got a bit of a coup there.

Here’s an important appointment which will wait the Senate’s vote:

New Attorney General for the Department of Justice: Jeff Sessions, Republican of Alabama. He’s currently head of The Judiciary Committee in the Senate. Want to know what the Left is saying about him, with a short walk down Memory Lane regarding how Democrats act when it comes to voting on Republican appointments? See Michelle Malkin’s post where she recalls the a few — very few — of the dirty tricks Democrats routinely play. Ugly stuff. On the other hand, Sessions is one of their own, so perhaps not.

You’ll be glad to hear that Sessions can say “Islamic radical” with no problem. Some of the Islamic memes you heard Trump say during the campaign came from Sessions.

One of my personal favorites:

New Environmental Protection Agency head: Myron Ebell. Scientific American’s title says it all:

“Trump Picks Top Climate Skeptic to Lead EPA Transition:
Choosing Myron Ebell means Trump plans to drastically reshape climate policies”

Heh. My dream boy. We’ll start seeing a big uptick in exploration and drilling of our own resources. It’s about time.

There are others — e.g., the new head of the CIA, but those will wait for another day. I’ve plumb run out of steam…

…just be sure to watch that video! It demonstrates so well the optimism of those of us who have been in the desert for so long…and we just found a YUGE oasis.

The Baron has reservations on at least one appointment and I’ll let him tell you about it when he has time. But just so you know, our first line of enquiry will always be: is the appointee up to snuff (so to speak) on Islam?

  1. One thing for sure, appeasing those protesters from the Trump government will have no effect. if Trump wants to do his job, first he must go after the head of the snake: Soros, Hillary and Obama. Giving gestures are fine, but he can’t let them just go with a pardon… They will take revenge and we all know: the best defense is offense! Trump must start the legal process against them.
    If violence gets out of hand from the Leftists side, I know he would only has to say a single word and his voters (well organized and armed militias) will stand up to protect their President elect. But that would mean civil war. Also if an attempt on his life would be successful also most likely mean war, where snowflakes would be stamped out real fast. Maybe it is inevitable… If a large mass of people no longer wants to obey the law then usually something violent happening. Maybe this is natural selection as Darwin explained it.

    • Perhaps the undermining of America has gone that little bit too far to be able to rein in what many on this site are very aware of.

      I would suggest though, that it is within the big cities that the current protests are taking place because it is the big cities where much time and effort has been expended in indoctrinating the young over the past half decade or longer, and it is in the big cities where the maximum number of protesters can be assembled relatively quickly and easily while the corrupted media portray this insurrection as a ‘popular uprising’ while dancing to the Globalists tune.

      Neither Clinton or Obama have come forward to denounce this rioting which then leads one to an obvious conclusion – they are also part of the insurrection.

      Trump needs to jump on this and do it quickly in an effort to diffuse what is fast becoming a Left-wing cause celebre.

      And the one thing we can all take to the Bank though, is that what the Globalists have so far gained through their underhandedness against not just America, but throughout the whole West, they will pull out all stops to hang onto regardless, and it matters not to them just how violent and criminal this current undermining of Trump becomes as long as the end justifies the means.

      I agree that Trump must go after those who are causing this national insurrection and there is a law in place within the United States called the Logan Act that expressly forbids the sowing of insurrection in lands outside of the United States by U.S. citizens for which Soros and his sons have been implicated in for decades.

      If Trump can roll Soros and his evil empire, that may just force other Globalists into retreat and back into the shadows from where they hide.

      So Trump must go after those who are the known criminals and the insurrectionists, even if that task may include a still sitting president, and regardless of the outrage via the Left that this would cause, if it is not done then Trump’s recent victory will indeed become a hollow one that will set the stage for eventual massive civil unrest that could possibly lead to another civil war.

      • You failed to mention that it is also in the big cities that there is the most capital to burn and loot. That’s also where they will get the most media coverage. Are you more likely to have a news helicopter filming a protest for several hours in downtown Los Angeles or in Slippery Rock, Arkansas? After all, the protesters are being bused in. I heard one report that they are being offered $1500/week and being recruited on social media.

        • The more I see of Trump and catch glimpses of the transition, the more I hear him talk post-election, the more convinced I am that the man is comfortable in his own skin. I think he has made up his mind long since what his agenda will be and how he plans to implement it for the people who elected him. I do not believe the left, the progressives, have a clue what’s coming at them. I believe, personally, that Trump will be a good president — possibly even a great one. I look forward to the next four years.

  2. As I compose this in the background the congealed supposed musings of Nostradamus and Leonardo DaVinci have also been composed, (circa 2009) into apocalyptic witches brew on the (so called) History Channel. Any child babysat in front of a television set by this drivel is going to be to some extent disabled. The panic stricken affect that the groomers who run the media and they’re adjudicators and validators in academia, well they have succeeded somewhat. But panic is not pleasant mental state to stay in for our short eternities. One day one by one many will bail out of that affect.

    Where I find little solace is when it concerns that peculiar drive that courses through our sensual self. The adjudicators and validators have driven our sex drive into ditch by the use of corrupting the image between men and women. The damage they have done has left America bereft of trauma centers of the soul. The great danger is not glob al is global porn-ing. And yes, America is the number one polluter.

    Trump will not be a great president if he makes America great with riches and relieves us an the world of some economic distress. That would make him efficient. Can a man unleash a moral resource that is most probably the answer to any individual “pursuit of happiness”? Our American Declaration of Independence is a moral document. Can and will a sensual man of ignoble character set our course? Or will we set his?

  3. “The Baron has reservations on at least one appointment…” Well Trump has just met with Romney, as if an appointment is forthcoming–I wouldn’t! Romney may be good at his job, but he insulted Trump, and was at the forefront of the Republican split, and that would be too much; at least for me.

    The election is over, Trump has won, (thank goodness!) and it’s time for the snowflakes/ Democrats to get over it. We didn’t go completely loony when obama won(?), though we certainly had every reason to.

    • I don’t think Romney will get a place in the Trump administration. Mr. Trump is being polite and cordial to everyone. A lot of the luminaries in the Old Guard of the Republican Party are now knocking at the president-elect’s door. As soon as he agrees to meet with them, their aides have an off-the-record confab with media reporters, and PRESTO! In the next round of news stories Sen. Phogbound is duly “mentioned” as a possible choice for secretary of state.

      This is the way the game is played every four years in Washington. Supplicants for inclusion get “mentioned” by the Great Mentioner in the daily press. By using this technique, each hopeful tries to nudge events in his direction.

      I’ve been watching the political cycles for more than fifty years now, and have learned to recognize this quadrennial inside-the-Beltway kabuki theater. I wouldn’t pay it any mind — 98% of those “mentioned” never get a position in the new administration.

      My reservations are about Gen. Michael Flynn, who will be the new national security advisor. I sure hopes he gets a briefing from Maj. Stephen Coughlin, and pronto (emphasis added):

      US Should Hand Over Gulen to Turkey: Top Trump Adviser

      Turkey should by a top priority in U.S. foreign policy, a top adviser to President-elect Donald Trump said Wednesday in an article that slammed Barack Obama for failing to understand Ankara’s geopolitical position.

      “We must begin with understanding that Turkey is vital to U.S. interests,” retired Gen. Michael Flynn wrote for the Hill newspaper. He also called Turkey “a source of stability in the region”.

      Flynn was a key national security adviser to Trump during his presidential campaign and is expected by many to be appointed to a Cabinet position, possibly as defense secretary.

      The veteran general wrote that it was “an unwise policy” for the Obama administration to keep Ankara at arm’s length,

      “We need to adjust our foreign policy to recognize Turkey as a priority. We need to see the world from Turkey’s perspective,” he wrote.

      • “I’ve been watching the political cycles for more than fifty years now…”

        Don’t take this the wrong way, but dang you’re old. Don’t stop suddenly, I’m right behind you. Maybe you were more prescient than I was, but I didn’t start watching politics until I was almost 30. I’m not even going to do the math.

        • Well, I took a few years off here and there in my hippie days. But I started paying attention during Nixon vs. Kennedy, and especially during Goldwater vs. Johnson. I was in junior high then.

      • Flynn’s consultancy business, (lobbying really), had Turkish interests close to Erdogan as a client. For a guy who seems to be a realist to the Jihad threat to the West, his failure to recognise Erdogan as a stealth Jihadist in a well cut suit, is a little troubling.
        Most Turkey experts are skeptical of any Gulen link to the coup plot. What evidence does Flynn have? As for Ankara’s geopolitical position, if Assad was to fall, a likely outcome would be Turkey expanding it’s borders further into Syria to “create a security zone” and regain what it regards as it’s legitimate borders from Ottoman times. Trump will need to watch Flynn.

    • Romney may be good at his job, but he insulted Trump, and was at the forefront of the Republican split, and that would be too much; at least for me

      But that’s just it, Peter – there are hundreds of faux conservatives who did the same thing. Why waste all that otherwise useful talent just because they insulted you? I’ve been saying all along, “keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer..” And choosing from among his many enemies for *some* of the top jobs is an excellent move.

      BTW, he did far more than merely “insult” Trump. When Mitt Romney himself was running for president, he sought out the public affirmation of Donald Trump and he got it. So this was more than insulting DJT, it was a particularly cruel back-stabbing. Search in images for Romney and Trump in 2012 to see how glad MR was to have Trump’s endorsement.

      I want a bunch of them eating crow and heading up agencies.

      You know who would be an excellent Supreme Court nomination? Ted Cruz. He’s an expert on the Constitution.

      EDIT: I just saw the Baron’s opinion on this – and he’s probably right. He is in contact with many people outside the confines of GoV so he may well be privy to information I wouldn’t know – and don’t ask about. That’s a separate part of the work he does.

      • Baron and Lady D., thanks for your valued opinions! Interesting about Gen. Flynn, his calling Turkey “a source of stability in the region” tells me the man has no idea; Turkey is the complete opposite.

        We here were wondering after reading your comments what you think of Gen. Petraeus for a position in the new administration? We like him, he was brilliant at his job, by now he realizes he made a mistake, and appointing him would have one or two people eating crow!

        We agree heartily about Romney being a nasty back-stabber; never liked him. From my banking days way back, I would never have cashed a cheque for the man, and he is a member of the ‘spin–off’ religion. (not everyone will agree with my thinking on that one)

        Btw, so often I hear Turkey referred to as ‘necessary to the west’ and I don’t agree. Greece is right beside Turkey, and not moslem!

        • I don’t think it would be appropriate for me to say much about General Petraeus. He is (was) an ambitious climber who was willing to sacrifice his men (the new ROE) to gain favor with the Obamanoids.

          His crimes, for which he was punished, were far less than Hillary’s, though. It just goes to show…

      • “You know who would be an excellent Supreme Court nomination? Ted Cruz. He’s an expert on the Constitution.”

        Yes he is, and as such he should have realized that he was never constitutionally eligible to be POTUS. A Supreme Court justice should have more respect for the document. I liked Cruz very much, but upon reflection he may serve best as the senator from Texas.

    • One of the thing Trump is famous for is his ability to hold a grudge. I am not afraid that he will forget all the insults he received from the others.

  4. The fact that Mr. Trump is keen enough to recognize that with a” Revitalized.”..”Re Christianized ” Russia as an International ally ; The Globalists will be defeated. A close look at Vladimir Putin’s exemplary background..character, and credentials leads me to believe that Humanity still has a chance against the { possibly Satanic } multi generation psychopaths who hate Humanity and are bent on a severe reduction in the population of this planet. I am hopeful that the ” to do ” list includes the arrest..indictment. prosecution and conviction as well as the incarceration or execution of so many Household family names; with Trump and Putin as the executors of the ” Justice Enterprise “. Too many people are ignorant of the fact that Russia…for all of it’s flaws…remains a Hope for Humanity. Trump; with his disciplined and honest efforts to be of service to our Nation…is just smart and cunning enough to seek out other world leaders { Geert Wilders..Orban etc. } to put humanity back on a decent track. While I am at it….The ” Faux Pope” { see how he connived ..against the be elected } is another disruptive force who will also be relegated to the inconsequential Fop…that he is. { I am a Roman Catholic who is aghast at the Corrupt Vatican. Ill stop…Could go on for days. Pray for Trump and Putin.

    • You are certainly correct about the ‘Faux Pope’. As a Jesuit he is doing what Jesuits have been doing ever since their formation.

      Here’s a quote from General Sherman (of Civil War fame) who tried to convince his own son from becoming a Jesuit.

      ‘I would remind you of Webster’s definition (Dictionary) of a Jesuit:

      A designer, an intriguer. If the Church of Rome prevailed, the Pope would be the universal King__The Jesuits are here to plot and scheme and, if possible, take from us the noble heritage of our civil and religious freedom. The rules of the Jesuit order justify theft, licentiousness, lying, false-witness bearing, suicide and the murder of parents and other relatives. The greatest crimes in history committed against individuals and nations have been committed by the Jesuits. Wherever Jesuits are they have the torch to burn, the sword to slay, the Inquisition to torture. They are the enemies of Christianity. They live for conquest fortune and Glory.

    • Others may disagree, but I’m with you all the way about Russia. True, we don’t know what goes on in the mind of uncle Vlad, but his actions over the last couple of years show him (as far as I’m concerned) to be a damned sight more acceptable than our North American ‘leaders’, and preferable to any Europeans with the exception of the leaders of the visigrad four.

  5. I think that Trump knows that half-measures won’t do it, and has it in his mind that he will fix the USA.

    He has already been successful at many things, and this would be the crowning achievement of a multiple-field career.

    He’s not doing this for the money. It’ll actually cost him money.
    He’s doing this to fix things, and to be remembered as the one that did,
    is my guess.

    And that’s a much better reason than people usually do it for.

  6. There has been lots of talk lately about who should be eating crow. I know it’s just an expression, but it has me thinking, just what does crow taste like. We have plenty of them in my neighborhood and from what I see the mostly eat peanuts and garbage from the swap meet (consisting of taco and burrito remnants).

    Which reminds me of a riddle:
    What did one [adjective to describe a female that is sexually attracted to other females]* frog say to the other [adjective to describe a female that is sexually attracted to other females] frog?
    Well, I’ll be darned, we DO taste like chicken.

    *I thought I’d save you the trouble, we can’t have all those impressionable school kids reading the word lesbian, oops!
