    Hi Everybody! Just want to say thank you to everyone on this website for your positive attitude, wisdom, and inspiration that you share. A special thanks to Sundance for doing the research and sharing with us his invaluable knowledge!

    I made 2307 phone calls for the Trump campaign from the Auburn, CA Trump office and am so glad I could make that small contribution to the fight. We made calls in Florida, North Carolina, Michigan, Ohio, and Arizona. I want to say that the last 2 days we made calls in North Carolina and I talked to very few people voting for you-know-who. It was mostly Trump supporters. I’m convinced there was fraud taking place in NC and I hope it does not go un-investigated or unpunished. But besides that, Happy, Happy Day!

    The Morning After

    It’s a wondrous morning after.
    After the tally’s done last night
    We are waking to the sunshine.
    We are walking in the light.

    Oh, can’t you see this morning after?
    Restored freedom lights the day
    With sparkling sounds of joy and laughter
    In our homes so bright and gay.

    Freedom’s light; a blessing from God.
    It’s up to us to ask and pray.
    All from His grace, we should be awed
    That we’re set aright, after going astray.

    We must be humble and seek His face,
    Then He will hear and by His hand
    His blessings come, and by His grace
    He’ll reach out to heal our land.

    On this day we’ll all be giving
    Grateful thanks to God above
    For His mercies and our living
    Safe in His hands, our God of love.

    I have to stop and offer my congratulations to the new president and everyone who visits this site and to Sundance for the faithful posts to reveal the truth to us readers.

    But I also have to share something which I’ve been holding back since the Republican convention. After reading this some of you may get this, others may have already thought or even discussed it here. It may be the same things that you’ve seen and what drew you to Donald Trump.

    I must admit that over the decades, I’ve never thought much of Trump as anything other than a billionaire playboy. Then he threw his hat in the ring last year and I thought much of what the media howled about since that time regarding him.

    However, I’d seen a few interviews with him on Fox where he discussed his background as a young man. I also heard about how he handled his businesses in regard to people and rewarding talent.

    But during the convention, I heard his sons speak and, though I cannot remember exactly what they said that triggered me, I sat from the couch, yanked out of my doubts and assumptions with a singled question: who is Francisco d’Anconia? Now some of you hanging out here at the treehouse may have read Atlas Shrugged as I have. But for those who haven’t, he is a character in the book who lives as a rich playboy that everyone thinks squanders his superior talents. He is someone who worked all levels of the family business to know who to run the business. He’s even someone who has an inexplicable financial meltdown. Does this start to sound familiar? As I said, words where spoken that triggered me that night. I was astounded at the thought that all along Donald Trump has gas-lighted everyone into thinking he was a billionaire playboy when he’s something completely different. The similarities are extremely uncanny to say the least. It’s almost as if the character was his template.

    This notion intrigued me so much that I began considering voting for him – not that Clinton was ever a consideration for me. I realized that Trump did not merely inherit money for his business, he’d had to earn trust by working at lower levels to understand how other people lived and worked. He also had to learn to spot talent and reward it as a means to build and keep a good business. I mentioned this to a few friends to gauge their reaction. Some reacted with amazement that this might be the case about Trump. Others really couldn’t make anything of it, not having read Atlas Shrugged. I even asked my now college freshman daughter who had read the book (incidentally, upon completing the book she told me she completely understood why I believe the things I do). My first question was, “Who is John Galt?” which is the refrain asked over and over. My next question to my daughter was, “Who is Donald Trump?” My daughter laughed. I then asked, “Who is Francisco d’Anconia?” My daughter stopped laughing and, in dismay, said, “That can’t be!”

    I voted for Trump, not simply because I don’t want Clinton and all that she represents. I voted for Trump because I saw in him an objectivist revolt whether his movement followers fully realize it or not. I am intrigued that Trump may well be nothing that even the media or the many political types think they know he is. I voted for him because he is likely to have gas-lighted the professional gas-lighters and beat them at their own game. I hope he keeps it up and pushes a paradigm change that is much needed for this country to function as it should.

    My only questions that remain are:
    Who is John Galt? (aside from all the regular people waiting for their opportunity to shine in this country) and who is Ragnar Danneskjöld? These are the other 2 characters who make of Rand’s triumvirate of objectivists fighting the good fight. Who might the be? I have my thoughts and some of you who are familiar with Atlas Shrugged might have yours as well.

    I’m hopeful about what I see today and I’m trying to lift the spirits of those thoughtful people who are discouraged. I don’t think Trump (or anyone) is without faults. However, I truly think that Trump is an agent of change in the right direction rather than the drift into enslavement. Let me know your thoughts on the subject and I’ll reply as I can.

      This is a brilliant observation. It seems that in this election, nothing has been as it appears on the surface.

      Interesting observation. You know, I’ve been thinking along similar lines lately. Remember in that latest set of Batman movies how Bruce Wayne pretend to be a playboy as a distraction, so that no one ever knows he is Batman?

      I find it hard to believe that if he truly is the playboy that he acts like, that he would be so kind as to stop a mugging or hire poor people off the street the way he does. Usually playboys don’t care. They don’t have a conscience. Only their own fun matters. It’s quite a contradiction in his character….

    From Mrs. Clinton’s concession speech this morning:

    “We have seen our nation is more deeply divided than we thought, but I still believe in America and I always will,” she continued. “And if you do, then we must accept this result and then look to the future. Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power. And we don’t just respect that, we cherish it.”

    I am truly amazed. This is the leader of the team that trashed the White House on the way out the door in 2001. What I expected, and what I am sure a lot of other people expected, was a subtle call to begin an insurrection. Instead, this old ’60s radical called for unity and peace.

    For the first time since I first learned of her so many years ago, I have a small measure of good will towards her.

    Somehow, she has grown.

    Okay, with the dust now clearing and with all due respect, why was the “monster vote” a myth? I expected Trump to win going away, in a Reaganesque landslide per the monster vote and poll fraud projected by the media. Instead, we saw Hillary win the popular vote (at least so far) and Trump garnering less votes (59.5 million) than Romney (60.6 million). Trump’s margins in the batteground states that put him over the top were razor thin causing the victory to be in doubt till about 3:30 am ET.

    While the media polls distorted the landscape by 4 or 5 points for Hillary, the LA Times and IBD polls overstated Trump’s position by 2-3 points. The poll distortion seems mainly to have been made in state polls in battleground states, but not by that much given the closeness of the races.

    Sundance, how do you explain the, well, failure of the “monster vote” theory? I don’t see any way it can be sustained as realistic and I still see grave difficulty in Republicans winning presidential elections going forward against opponents not as lame as Hillary.

    • Jason says:

      at 4:00 pm EST Drudge was predicting 140 million. Most of the early voting states were having reports of record turnouts (see PA, projected as much as 80% of registered voters might turn out, but final result show only 66% voted… or maybe ‘counted’ is more appropriate).

      So many seemed to believe that we were going to, or were on track for some HUGE numbers. Either the people who got off work decided not to vote en masse, or something else happened.

        So basically Trump brought a lot of new republicans into the tent but lost a lot of the old ones. I believe Trump’s actions will speak louder than words and will.hopefully be enough to bring the old guard back in time for 2020.

          Just a theory. I don’t know how many people like the guy I know there actually are. We know there are plenty of never Trumpers though.
          My hunch is that Trump has changed the Republican party. It is now more blue collar. And that in my opinion is a good thing.

      I have never subscribed to the idea of “it’s not gonna be close” etc. I always thought it would be very, very close and stated that many times on these boards. Why?

      Trump was generally as unpopular as Hillary (thanks to the avalanche of negativity poured on him from every imaginable direction, including the “true conservatives”;
      Demographics — the ultimate weapon of mass destruction;
      Fundamental transformation, cultural Marxism, SJW infestation, pseudo-intellectualism, you name it;
      Massive amount of money and effort invested by literally every member of the international NWO cabal;
      Fraud.

      What Trump did is nothing short of miracle. Now they are planning to assasinate him, I have no doubt.

      There was voter depression by the GOPe traitors with even two coup attempts of the nominee, MSM especially Fox, FBI on then off again investigation specifically to get Trump off message and then depress us when they “exonerated her”. They even made Trump the second coming of Hitler in many good minds.

      Fraud. Ban all DRE (direct recording equipment, computer) voting machines, they do not count the votes right, and are so slow to vote on. Require same day voting, except under special circumstance (such as sickness, or military service); Congress has the authority to require voting on the day of the election. It just needs to define voting.

      The bottom line is: We won, they Lost. We have the Presidency, the Senate and the House.

      Thanks for all the replies, it’s a good discussion. I thought Trump was supposedly getting a high percentage of Republican voters by election day but maybe not. I just felt a strong pang of disappointment when I saw Trump behind in FL before the panhandle votes came in. Trump lost a good percentage of votes for some reason, obviously. I don’t really see how “election tampering” though could account for a reduction of 13 million votes.

      Again, I’d like to see SD address all this in a separate post.

        Sundance always said the monster vote was out there, it was up to us to get out the vote. Obviously some of them stayed home. Was it the negative coverage and ads? I’m sure that was part of it. I saw on Fox that Trump got 90% of the Republican vote, but that’s of the Republicans who voted. I’m not sure how many Republicans stayed home. I think the ads definitely scared away some Bernie supporters who just stayed home.

        Either way, Hillary had the worst Electoral College showing of any Dem in 28 years. This is a historic win.

    When Donald Trump is sworn in as president of the USA, he will be 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old. His first full day as President, the 21st day of 2017 he will be 70 years, 7 months, 7 days old. This would be the 110th day of year 5777 on the Hebrew calendar. The 21st (7+7+7) day of 2017, the first full day Obama is set to leave office, will be 14 (7+7) days shy of Obama’s 666th month of life.
    Trump was born 700 days before Israel returned as a nation on May 14, 1948. Born 700 days before Israel, would begin reign in the United States 7 months and 7 days into his 70th year.

          During the paid protests here it was the young women giving Trump supporters the finger and saying F**ck you and it seems this is continuing on. I don’t know but I think the next generation, their children, will be more like the older generation…runs in cycles. I sure hope those young women come into some type of maturity. Nasty people.

      I also don’t feel like rubbing it into their faces. I’m confident that they will soon learn that President Trump is GOOD for the country and that their irrational paranoia and hate was completely unfounded. And maybe they’ll learn from the experience. It’s their own mistake, they didn’t properly vet the candidates. If they had bothered to learn who Trump really is they would have probably voted for him. 🙂

      They’re all being nice and conciliatory in the aftermath of the vote. It’s hard to retain a hardened heart when people are calling for unity as Americans and goodwill is now flowing so freely. And DJT is adopting a magnanimous stance as well at the moment. But we cannot forget the cheating and fraud by Hillary’s campaign, how vicious they were inciting violence against Trump rallies all campaign long and claiming it was Trump, how the media and GOPe neverTrumpers smeared Trump and his character unceasingly all campaign long. It was all so beyond the pale that we can’t afford to forget their detestable actions.

    I find it interesting that no one here is commenting about how far off the CTH prediction was for voter turnout. The fact we won is even more amazing when the monster vote didn’t turn out. If I remember correctly, last spring it was said that about 73 million would vote for Trump but from what I see today it appears that just over 59 million voted for him and, of course, they’re still counting. At this point Hillary does have a couple hundred thousand more votes than Trump, but he won more for the Electoral College vote next month and that’s all that matters. I suspect Clinton isn’t fighting because of two things. First, she knows that constitutionally only the Electoral College vote matters so she’d have a hard court fight. And second, she probably realizes that if she fights Trump will definitely have his new AG continue investigating her whereas if she just quietly goes away and appears to be professional and polite, it might get dropped.

    Regardless, we owe even more thanks to God for the win when so many less people actually voted than we had thought would happen.

        While I agree with you and I think he doesn’t care what people think of him, I do realize that if Obama doesn’t pardon her (and I’d be stunned if he didn’t), prosecuting her would be a process of negotiation with the GOPe and Democrats in Congress. They will stand with her and say that we can’t have the image of prosecuting someone with her credentials and if Trump does have her prosecuted they’ll block all of his legislation. That is a very real possibility. Remember that in 1999 the Republicans in the Senate joined with the Democrats to protect Bill Clinton and not convict him in his impeachment trial.

        I think they selected those two offices because they can veto and refuse to enforce laws and constitutional amendments approved by the citizens. McCrory is not conceding, there was some weird stuff going on, all votes have not been counted yet such as absentee, military, provisional, and that won’t be complete for another week or so. There could be a complete recount.
