The creation of a hypocrite

Christian evangelicals, who believe they represent the 'moral fabric' of our country have proven what we all knew they were, abject hypocrites.  80% supported the Pussy-grabber elect.

Someone who calls himself a pastor, conservative blogger John D. Smithson of "Midknight Review", now a huge Trump supporter,  went through a hypocritical transformation that was pretty amazing.

During the GOP primaries, John D. Smithson wrote the following about Trump:
  • "The Confederate Right Wing of the GOP, aka Trump supporters" 
  •  "If Trump thinks Putin is anything but a thugish killer, I will not vote for him." 
  •  "Trump is no Conservative. Proof? This Sunday's morning shows" 
  • " Reasons for rejecting Donald Trump as a pretend conservative: I can't imagine that he will make it through the GOP primaries and I know absolutely no one who likes the man . . . . . too full of himself and his mouth, it reminds me of a fish out of water, trying to get oxygen. " 
  •  "His four bankruptcies indicate, in part, poor personal judgement (Politifact, here) . I believe they also indicated a personal disregard for the trust of those who trusted in your promise to pay." (link here)
  • " Lets talk about who is the real moron, here. You support a man who is already backing off his pledge to deport the masses. Read his immigration paper and see if you can find a hint of his pledge to deport 11 million illegals. He ain't going to do it. Gun control: he will nominate someone like his sister to the High Court. He has already made that clear . . . . and she is a gun ownership hater. Apparently he is in love with the KKK and David Duke. He thinks the confederate flag (note the small "c") is a righteous symbol of some kind. He and Putin are going to get along "just fine." Wow, we should all be happy for Putin. He can't spell, but that probably doesn't bother you. He uses bankruptcies to balance his expenses, making him a first class cheat. But maybe you don't know how bankruptcy works for a con man. What the con artist does is promise and promise and promise to pay for goods and services received, knowing all along that he has no intentions of paying for those goods and services. One bankruptcy? You got yourself in a bind. Four bankruptcies costing 20,000 jobs and millions and millions of dollars to folks/investors/subcontractors/vendors who believed his crap lies . . . . . he did it on purpose with the intent of defrauding. Defense of that crap is what I call moronic."   (link here) -- J.D. Smithson
He published a list of reasons why to reject Trump.  Now he kisses Trump's ass.  Smithson is in LOVE with Trump.  The guy who says about himself
"I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things." ... "I have a very very high aptitude"... "I have the best words."   
-- D.J Trump
Smithson defends the Russian interference in our election, oblivious to the fact that Trump is playing right into Putin's hands, and he calls himself and Trump, "Patriots."

Smithson says: "So what. The Russians have been hacking into our elections for 30 years."


I pointed out:
"The framers of the Constitution intended that the Electoral College guard against the possibility that a foreign power influences the outcome of a presidential election. In Federalist No. 68, Alexander Hamilton wrote that a major purpose of the Electoral College was to stop 'foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.' He said that the College would Guard against all danger of this sort … with the most provident and judicious attention from the electors.”

America in trouble - the Trump years begin

This blog reopens in light of the new threat to America:  Donald Trump

Is it mandate?

1) Consider the fact, we have a new President elect that is now losing the popular vote by 2,676,670 votes, who won by a mere 106,000 votes in 3 key states. The less-than-500 counties that Clinton won nationwide combined to generate 64% of America's economic activity in 2015. The more-than-2,600 counties that Trump won combined to generate only 36% of the country's economic activity last year. Clinton, in other words, carried nearly two-thirds of the American economy.

2) Also, consider the fact that since 1992, Democratic White House winners have won the popular vote by an average of 7.1 million votes while Republican White House winners have won the popular vote by an average of 84,000 votes.

3) This makes the Democratic party the winner of the popular vote for president in 6 of the last 7 elections.

Looking at the big picture... this is clearly, NOT a mandate.  It is more like 'America held hostage' by an electoral system that is undemocratic and by a dangerously incompetent and regressive party whose president elect is a proven liar, a pathological narcissist, a racist,  and by all accounts a non-reader and shallow thinker.

The American public is in grave danger with this regressive regime.   It is clearly 'white identity politics' driving this regime, with a little help of Russian hackers and a huge level of gullibility to fake news among the American populace.   It is not unlike Germany in the 1930s when a forceful speaker and demigod named Adolph took the nation with promises of making it great again. Joseph Goebbels would be having a field day with social media in today's America.

The resistance will be strong and hopefully, a more fact based society will emerge, probably only after the Trump regime begins to fail.  And... they will fail.
