    Two comments –

    .1. I hope that PE Trump and Company are preparing a few thousand “YOU’RE FIRED” memo’s to be hand delivered at the earliest opportunity after his inauguration.

    .2. The U.N. passing this particularly ugly, anti-Israel resolution is a great opportunity (as though he really needs one) to withhold all funds from the U.N. until the issue is readdressed and corrected.

    Angry Democrats Plan Violent Protests For Trump Inaugural

    Power to the Progs!

    The patriots in our country like the inauguration a lot!
    But us Progs, who prefer anarchy, decidedly do not!

    We Progs hate the inauguration and its presidential reason!
    We hate it because we lost; we’d rather have treason.

    Trump stands for tyranny, misogyny and greed.
    He’s the champion of neo-Nazis and other foul breeds.

    Trump loves the police who kill black, brown and poor;
    Loves border agents, and prison guards, who we abhor.

    He gives a free rein to the snoops at NSA,
    And aids the FBI who treats us like their prey.

    We won’t have safe spaces to go with our tears;
    We’ll hide in mom’s cellar, alone with our fears.

    He’ll take away sanctuaries where we can hide,
    And our political friends will probably be tried.

    He’ll not play war with ISIS; he’ll really fight,
    While we know it’s our fault, their terrible plight.

    We’re so content with our parties and friends at school,
    If he makes us study it would just be so cruel!

    We’ll have to behave; not loot in big mobs.
    What’s even worse, we’ll have to find jobs.

    But we hate him, really hate him, by far, most of all
    Because Trump, without compassion, will build a big wall.

    Our national popular vote shows clearly who won;
    Trump’s not legitimate, this farce must be undone.

    We’ve had paradise with Obama, but lost Hillary for now!
    We must stop the inauguration from coming! But how?”

    We know what must be done! We’ll control what is to be.
    We just won’t let this happen. Disruption is the key!

    We’re Obama’s Children and we know what to do.
    We’ll create a sense of crisis, we’ll harass you.

    Then we’ll step right up to intimidation.
    And our movement will spread across the nation.

    Electoral politics perpetuates white power,
    So we’ll take to the streets, it’ll be our finest hour!

    We’ll paralyze the city by blocking the roads,
    Shutting down mass transit, stopping pedestrian flows.

    We’ll threaten their singers and refuse to send bands,
    No celebrity will dare show from Hollywood land.

    We’ll demonstrate by the thousands, in a huge crowd,
    And when they try to talk, we’ll yell really loud.

    If this happens, we’ll force it behind closed doors.
    A peaceful transition of power is what we abhor.

    They’ll be puffed up with pride and want a parade,
    But we’ll stop that, too, with burning blockades.

    And later, in their finery, they’ll try to hold balls.
    We’ll rush in, throw garbage, and laugh with catcalls .

    We’ll burn dumpsters and tires, our air horns will blare.
    We’ll make more trouble than the establishment can bear.

    The media will cover us; they’re all on our side
    They’ll only tell our story, broadcast far and wide.

    Power to the people! Destiny is in our hands.
    And we’ll fight our good fight, until we rule this land.

    Then with our victory, when we’ve got control,
    We’ll force everyone out who won’t sell us their soul.

    We’ll throw out religion and make new laws, too,
    And everything will be wonderful when we control you.

    The media is fixated on Donald Trump’s tweet about nuclear arms, but they haven’t mentioned the tweet about the Muslim terrorist in Berlin and what he said before he murdered those poor people.

    I don’t have Twitter, but I copied the tweet to paste here — it just won’t have the same format.

    Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump
    The terrorist who killed so many people in Germany said just before crime, “by God’s will we will slaughter you pigs, I swear, we will……slaughter you.

    This is a purely religious threat, which turned into reality. Such hatred! When will the U.S., and all countries, fight back?

    I’m guessing wherever Donald got that information from, they had already cleaned it up before posting it because it seems more likely the terrorist said Allah instead of God — Actually, I’d bet the farm on it.

      That info came from a video the terrorist made and CNN just played it a second ago.

      Sure enough, the Muslim terrorist was speaking in Arabic and I heard with my own ears, he said Allah and the CNN translator said God.

        Authorities did the exact same thing when Jihadist Omar Mateen killed all those people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. That is exactly how the FBI translated it. We called them out on it, but it was never corrected to my knowledge.

      Never never say “God” as a translation for their “Allah.” Blasphemy.

      • KitKat says:

        Just because men blaspheme the name of God, that has no effect on God.

        The Arablic language is an ancient Semetic language. and the word Allah derives from the same Semitic word ALH ( alef-lamed-het) that is found in the original Hebrew Scriptures. The ancient word ALH in the Hebrew Scriptures is translated 79 times in the King James Bible into the English word “God”.

        See Strongs H426 at Blue Letter Bible.


        • KBR says:

          I much prefer to read the Bible itself, wherein God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son.

          From this one verse (as well as many many others) we see that man’s sins have a clear effect on God.

          We are advised by Christ to think of God as a father. To claim that blasphemy has no effect on God is akin to claiming that a son, cursing the name of his own loving father and attempting to discredit him, would have no effect on that father! The attempt to discredit might not succeed in the world at large, but every loving father would be sorely hurt and likely angry. That hurt and anger is a direct effect.

          In the Bible man’s sins certainly had effects on God: God’s wrath, God’s mercy, God’s Son’s Crucifixion. Pretty big effects.

          Strong’s is not as strong as one might think. A reference book on the Bible is never as strong as the Bible itself.


          • KitKat says:

            If you read it the original languages of Hebrew and Greek good for you.

            If you are reading it in English there are thousands of translation errors.


            • KitKat says:

              There is a very convincing school of thought, one which I am sympathetic towards, that even the New Testament was originally written in Hebrew, not Greek.

              The King of Jordan worships Allah, as do the radical extremist terrorists. They do not have the same ideas of what God is. Their different ideas do not affect the unchanging and universal God at all.

              In the Christian religion many people anthropomorphize God, but it states clear as day in the New Testament that God is Love and that God is Spirit, neither of which are anthropomorphic.


    • Ken Lawson says:

      Many people misunderstand that Islam’s Allah is not the same as God in the Bible. They think it’s just a difference in what they call God, but it isn’t. Trump may be under the misconception, too, since the media have been spreading this lie for years.


  12. NJF says:

    Another fake story. Fake in the sense that one woman spoke for the whole organization. Emphasis mine.

    This story has legs: Bosses deny Rockettes forced to perform at Trump inaugural –

    “For a Rockette to be considered for an event, they must voluntarily sign up and are never told they have to perform at a particular event, including the inaugural,” MSG said in a statement. “It is always their choice. In fact, for the coming inauguration, we had more Rockettes request to participate than we have slots available.”

    We know that none of the other Republican candidates could or would do what our President-Elect has done so far for America. They certainly couldn’t have beaten Hillary. Each one represented his own personal example of The Peter Principle.

      They could have taken the consistently phenomenal rally turnouts as an indicator of the type of voters they didn’t reach by poll. They preferred to ignore the rallies & deny we existed. KellyAnne shouldn’t give them a pass on this. A credible national polling firm would be in a position to spot such a blatant example of a voting demographic not being captured by their existing methods.

      They lied, cheated, changed polling parameters to fit desired outcomes. Accurate polling was never in the cards. i can’t believe polling firms aren’t being sued by their lefty clients.

    There are 3,141 counties in the United States. ➽ Trump won 3,084 of them. ➽ Clinton won 57. There are 62 counties in New York State. Trump won 46 of them. Clinton won 16. Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes. In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond) Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country. These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles. The United States is comprised of 3, 797,000 square miles. When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election. Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of our country.
