      Romney threw the election. I don’t doubt there was fraud, but the decisive factor was Romney going limp.

      I agree on your other two points. Obola is a crap weasel and we need to do everything possible to cut down on both election and vote fraud.

      • Romney was more like a Wimp! He did not stand up and fight and he did not fight like Trump did! Even though I voted for him reluctantly, at the debate he was very careless! he lost his thoughts and went downhill! But Obozo also cheated and i have no doubt!

    My husband and I will watch the Inauguration ceremonies via the internet, and I will “interpret” for him, as he is at age 106 very hard of hearing. We are also agreed that any therapy appointments for that day will be rescheduled—so he can enjoy his new REAL Commander-in-Chief being sworn in, the parade, etc. (I think my husband is one of the OLDEST living Americans who voted for Donald J. Trump—I actually made a copy of the completed Absentee Ballot form for “archival purposes” before I mailed it in).

    From: Ed Martin (via email today)
    “Re: Phyllis Schlafly honored on CBS Sunday Morning, January 1, 2017

    Dear Friend,

    It’s true that 2016 was a year filled with great victories for Phyllis! Her pro-life book How the Republican Party Became Pro-Life, her NY Times bestseller The Conservative Case for Trump, and a record-shattering performance at the Republican Convention in Cleveland. More than all of these: Phyllis’ eagles across America are hard at work for good causes.

    And, it has to be stated, in 2016 Phyllis did indeed help elected Donald Trump.

    CBS Sunday Morning this morning ran a segment that covered the people who died this year and had Phyllis between Nancy Reagan and Antonin Scalia.

    Fitting that the segment had Phyllis’ upbeat, smiling assessment!

    As Phyllis’ son John said, Trump’s election was a final victory for Phyllis.

    On March 11, 2016, Phyllis and Trump met in a dressing room before going on stage for an endorsement. They spoke of the conservative and pro-life Republican platform, and Trump told Phyllis that he would not let her down on judges. (By the time of her death, Phyllis had written about Trump over four score times!)

    The connection between Trump and Phyllis was personal and palpable. (I was there and saw them in action.) These were two people who loved America and wanted it to be great again.

    Six months later – almost to the day – Trump returned to speak at Phyllis’ funeral. He met with the Schlafly family and then delivered powerful remarks to the thousands gathered in the St. Louis Cathedral.

    The takeaway from this besides Trump’s appreciation for Phyllis is this:
    “Phyllis, we love you, we miss you, and we will never ever let you down.”

    Phyllis believed in Trump – and she believed in you and me. All that is left for all of us is to ALSO never let Phyllis down. Phyllis left us marching orders: Make America Great Again with our pro-life work, with our pro-family policies, and for our amazing Constitution. And help Trump.

    Let’s do it!

    Please take a moment to read the remarks of Trump and John Schlafly which you will find below.

    Talk to you soon.
    Ed Martin

    “She never wavered.”

    delivered by Donald J. Trump at the funeral of Phyllis Schlafly
    Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, September 10, 2016

    Thank you very much. What a great honor. And what a great lady.
    
    We are here today to honor the life and legacy of a truly great American patriot. I wish first and most importantly to extend my deepest heartfelt condolences to her six wonderful children who she loved so much – John, Bruce, Roger, Liza, Andy, and Anne. And also her sixteen grandchildren and her three great grandchildren.
    
    A movement has lost its hero. And believe me, Phyllis was there for me when it was not at all fashionable. Trust me. You have lost a mother. An amazing mother. And our country has lost a true patriot. Phyllis was a strong, proud, fierce, and tireless warrior; and that’s what she was – she was a warrior. And she was a warrior for the country, which she loved so much. Even at the age of 92, this beloved woman had more strength and fire and heart than 50 strong politicians all put together. Believe me, I witnessed it. To borrow a phrase from a great poet, Phyllis was “that strength which in all days moved heaven and earth.” This incredible woman has been active in American politics for one quarter of American history – think of that. One quarter of American history. And at the top! She was the ultimate happy warrior – always smiling, but boy could she be tough. We all know that. And in all of her battles, she never strayed from the one guiding principle – she was for America. And it was always America first. People have forgotten that nowadays. With Phyllis it was America first.
    
    She never wavered. Never apologized. And never backed down in taking on the kingmakers. She never stopped fighting for the fundamental idea that the America people ought to have their needs come before anything or anyone else. She loved her country, she loved her family, and she loved her God.
    
    Her legacy will live on every time some underdog – outmatched and outgunned – defies the odds and delivers a win for the people. America has always been about the underdog and always about defying the odds. The idea that so-called “little people” or the “little person,” that she loved so much, could beat the system – often times the rigged system (we’ve been hearing a lot about it) – that the American grassroots is more powerful than all of the worlds’ special interests put together. And that’s the way Phyllis felt. She’s always felt that way. That’s the romance of America; that’s the story of the mother and the patriot that we honor here today. Phyllis, who has rejoined with her late husband Fred, is looking down on us right now and I’m sure that she’s telling us to keep up the fight – no doubt. No doubt about it.
    
    Phyllis we love you, we miss you, and we will never ever let you down. God bless you, Phyllis. God bless her family. And God bless everyone. Thank you very much, thank you.
    

    Her Lamp Would Not Go Out

    Remarks delivered by John Schlafly at the funeral of his mother, Phyllis Schlafly, at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis on September 10, 2016:
    When my father, Fred Schlafly, reached the age of 75, and realized he could no longer compete in the sports he had enjoyed throughout his life, he turned to my mother one day and said: “Phyllis, you probably have about 10 good years left.”

    That conversation took place more than 30 years ago. And those 30 extra years were good years: good for us, of course, her family and friends who received her wise counsel; and also good for our country, as her political activism continued to influence the 2016 election.

    They were good years for Phyllis, too, despite the increasing burdens of her old age. She was able to watch her family grow to 25 descendants, with more on the way. In her final days, she had the great joy of seeing the infants and toddlers that my father never knew.

    My parents were partners in their life together, and Phyllis depended on Fred for everyday reinforcement. He supported her career, screened what she wrote, and coached her on what to say. She called him “the censor.”

    Fred Schlafly’s influence is apparent in Phyllis’ most widely read article, “What’s Wrong With ‘Equal Rights’ for Women?” First published in February 1972, that article has since been reprinted in dozens of college textbooks and is considered the classic expression of Phyllis’ opposition to feminism.

    The 1972 article set forth the proposition that our public laws and policies, as embedded in the fundamental law of our nation, should reinforce the family as the basic unit of any society. Confronting the burgeoning feminist movement and its principal objective, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), Phyllis’ simple but powerful argument seemed controversial and even retrograde to liberals.

    As Father Brian Harrison explained in his homily today, the idea that a nation’s laws should recognize the basic social unit as the family, rather than the individual, is grounded in the social teaching of the Catholic church. It’s the central insight of the pope’s famous 1891 encyclical Rerum Novarum, which launched Catholic social teaching, and it has been reaffirmed many times since then.

    Phyllis expressed the idea in a way that attracted tens of thousands of people, mostly of other faiths, to what she called the “pro-family” movement. Many of those she touched and inspired have honored our family by coming here today.

    We now take Phyllis to rest beside her husband, my father, in the place she selected many years ago. Like every place she ever lived, she decided the burial plot needed another tree — a maple tree that that turns bright gold in the fall.

    She selected a tree, planted it and drove there frequently with buckets of water, to make sure the tree survived. Since we buried my father there, 23 years ago, the little tree that Phyllis planted has become a powerful, majestic, stately canopy, and next month its color will be gorgeous.

    Reflecting on my mother’s long life, the singular quality that explains her effectiveness is that she was always prepared. Whether her task was to give a speech, conduct a meeting, or meet a deadline, her careful preparation made the job seem effortless and gave her time to deal with unexpected events.

    Phyllis was never at a loss for the appropriate words. She faced crisis and conflict with grace, and she infuriated opponents with her unflappable good humor.

    In the parable of the bridegroom (Matt. 25:1-13), Jesus tells the story of 10 women who were called to light the way for a wedding party. Five of the women brought no extra oil, and their lamps went out before the wedding party arrived.

    The other five women came prepared with extra oil in case the wedding party was running late. The sensible five were admitted to the wedding feast from which the foolish five were excluded.

    Phyllis would have been one of the five wise enough to bring an extra flask of oil. Even in her final year, she was planning for the future, including America’s future as well as her own.

    Phyllis Schlafly was a wise woman, a sensible woman, a faithful woman. Her lamp would not go out, and I believe she was prepared for today.”

            I get the gist of the analogy. But Russia always had “communes” which were initially established by villages as a way to survive. Lenin and more specifically Stalin imposed an artificial unbalanced communalism on the population as a method to control them. Same way Mao and the Chinese Reds drove peasants off the land and forced untrained intelligentsia to take over, resulting in horrific famines.

            So I get the connection but I think the Climate Nazis are somewhat different than communists. I could be wrong..

              The communists use the “Climate nazis” and environmental nutcases to further their cause. Many of he communists also sincerely believe that we are destroying the planet and the Feds should unilaterally step in to stop us.

              In other words, the two groups overlap.

              But redistribution of wealth and the control of land and natural resources by a centralized power is exactly what is already happening in the name of “environmental justice.” That is communism by another name with a different stated purpose, but communism just the same. Central planning is the goal.

    Over the past 24 hours, a total of 79 shells and also 246 rounds of ammunition have been fired from various types of grenade launchers at the republic’s territory, DPR’s command spokesman said.

    DONETSK, January 1. /TASS/. The Kiev forces opened massive fire at the southern areas of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic late on Saturday amid the trip of Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko and US Senator John McCain to Mariupol, the DPR’s command spokesman Eduard Basurin said.

    Ukraine confirms ceasefire observed in Donbass
    “The increase in the number of shellings at the republic’s southern frontiers signals that the command of the 36th naval infantry brigade (near Mariupol, southeastern Ukraine) has decided to zealously show its notorious combat capability,” Basurin was quoted by the Donetsk News Agency as saying.
    Over the past 24 hours, a total of 79 shells and also 246 rounds of ammunition have been fired from various types of grenade launchers at the republic’s territory, Basurin said. Kiev again violated the February 2015 Minsk peace deal by redeploying two Akatsiya self-propelled artillery systems to the contact line, he added.
    On December 31, Poroshenko congratulated the Ukrainian military in Mariupol with the New Year. McCain, who arrived with him, said the US would provide moral support and voiced hope that the DPR’s territory would be “liberated” by Ukraine’s troops in 2017.

    Rules for Righties — a War-Winning Manifesto for 2017/
    by JAMES DELINGPOLE/1 Jan 2017/1,308/

    “2016 was a great year for most of us – but just because we’ve gained the beachhead doesn’t mean we’re going to win the war.

    With Brexit and Donald Trump, we’ve done the equivalent of capturing everywhere from Pointe Du Hoc to Pegasus Bridge. But just like with D-Day, the worst of the fighting is yet to come. Our enemy is fanatical, determined, well organised. Plus, they still hold most of the key positions: the big banks, the corporations, the top law firms, the civil service, local government, the universities, the schools, the mainstream media, Hollywood… Give those bastards half the chance and they’ll drive us back into the sea – which, in contemporary terms, means nixing Brexit (or giving us “soft Brexit”, which is basically the same thing) and frustrating all the things President Trump will try to do to Make America Great Again.

    I use the war analogy first because World War II analogies never fail, but second because this really is a war that we’re fighting. The bad news is that wars are hard, costly and ugly. The good news is that we’re on the right side and we’re going to win. Here’s how:

    We will never underestimate the wickedness of the enemy.”

  12. President-elect Donald Trump on Friday ejected from his West Palm Beach golf course one of his most critical biographers, Harry Hurt III, who had been preparing to play in a foursome with billionaire mega-donor David Koch.

    Hurt is the author of “Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump,”

          REPORT: 90,000 CHRISTIANS KILLED For Their Faith in 2016/

          During the year 2016, some 90,000 Christians were killed for their faith around the world, according to a new study from the Turin-based Center for Studies on New Religions (CESNUR).

          While in the past century, atheistic communist regimes were the greatest persecutors of Christians, Introvigne added, the geopolitical landscape has changed considerably since then and the actors have changed as well.

          While “Communism’s last salvoes” are still responsible for some ill-treatment of Christians, Introvigne told Breitbart, “Islamic ultra-fundamentalism” has taken its place as the number-one agent of persecution.

          Introvigne’s findings coincide with those of other scholars and human rights groups. According to the 2016 “World Watch List,” for example, published by the Open Doors organization, nine out of the top ten countries where Christians suffer “extreme persecution” had populations that are at least 50 percent Muslim.

          While tens of thousands of Christians are killed for their faith, Introvigne said, they are just the tip of the iceberg AND MUCH PERSECUTION TAKES PLACE ON A DAILY BASIS
          THAT NEVER MAKES THE NEWS.

          CESNUR’s annual study, which is slated for release next month, indicates that between 500 and 600 million Christians were in some way persecuted and prevented from freely practicing their faith.

          Have you noticed that — except early on when we learned of the beheadings of Christians or others, impaling of decapitated heads on fence posts, people set on fire or drowned– the media has not been reporting similar ISIS atrocities? Why? Has it all stopped? Did those kinds of atrocities suddenly cease from ISIS arsenals? Why not daily on the media? Or weekly? Or even in the past few months? And if our media is so incompetent as to not inform its citizenry, then why has the government not kept us informed? The answer can only be mutual dupliciity / complicity.

      Thank you for posting that – very informative and accurate. There is one thing I admire about Donald Trump and his ability to read people. During the campaign and now that he is picking his administration, there are quite a few that have that quality as well, they read peoples demeanor, body language, (if you watch Ivanka – while Trump is speaking you will see her scanning the room observing body language), tone. I also, love that fact that they seem to have a very quick wit about them — one the spot, they are able to answer a unrehearsed question.

      I like Kelly Anne Conway, very bright, strong, and able to balance her humor and softness, but can play hard when needing to — when she is on the defensive she is able to bring it strong without coming across emotional or whiny.

      Great Insight – checking out the other videos – hoping to find some comparing candidates!

      This is an exclave of Spain on the African mainland, bordering Morocco. Another one, Melilla, also bordering Morocco, exists.

      It probably chaps the muzrats’ butts that Spain owns territory on the north coast of Africa. (Heck it chaps their butts that Spain isn’t Islamic, after once being ruled by Moors.)

    Feminism lost, now what. Cry babies at the New York Times, although some of the comment are really good.

    One good comment.

    “Nail on the head there of just why today’s feminism lacks broad popular appeal: It’s obsessively woman-interested to the exclusion of anyone else, ie, men. Feminism used to be about equal rights for both sexes, despite the name “feminism”. In the ’70s feminist leaders enthusiastically talked about ways the ERA, for example, would also benefit men, etc.

    “Now, in modern, or “third wave” feminism, men are not considered as even persons with an interest in what feminists advocate; in fact, a policy idea that will be of benefit to women as a class that also inflicts harm on men as a class is heralded with such phrases as “I drink male tears”. This is not how one wins friends and influences people.

    “Christina Hoff Sommers’ “Who Stole Feminism?” does a good job of explaining just what happened to feminsm here in these latter days that has caused it to be viewed as a source of derision, division, unfairness, and conflict, and rightly so. So long as there are mainstream feminist leaders doing things like advocating for a reduction in the male population so that it is only 10% of the overall human population, kept around even then only for breeding purposes, feminism will have a hard time not only winning over female converts but not making mortal enemies of men. Just how smart is it to pick a fight with the Earth’s entire male population, anyway?”
