    “America! America! God shed His grace on thee”…and somehow, beyond all understanding, He allowed the people who love this country to elect Donald Trump.

    FYI: according to my “demographic,” I should be a Democrat (spit). Not to brag but to explain: I am an upper middle class woman with advanced degrees and old money. I am a public school teacher. I am a Christian (Russian Orthodox). I am divorced because my ex betrayed me and our boys. I literally dropped to my knees to praise God when I woke up at 3 something AM the day after Election Day to discover that Pennsylvania went to Donald Trump, and he won the election.

    I am humbly grateful to have found a home here.

      Too bad you couldn’t stay up till 5 AM, as I did here in central time FL panhandle, which OVERWHELMINGLY went to DJT.

      Watching the NYT probability ,meter slowly and surely go to 100%, while joining fellow Treepers here to celebrate in real-time commenting — unforgettable.

        LOL! Since I have to be up at 0-dark- thirty to get ready for school, I went to bed before 10 PM, resigned to a (spit) Hillary win.
        I often wake up in the middle of the night. That night/morning, of course I had to see where things were. I will remember for the rest of my life the feeling of utter thankfulness I had when I knew Donald Trump won.
        Don’t you think the day after Election Day should be a national holiday? 🙂

          goddess: great story. Living on the west coast I could feel things turning before I left work that night 🙂 Their manipulation was so obvious when they wouldn’t call some states like NC and FL until OR/WA/CA polls closed as to not appear as a total blow out for the hag.

          I’m happy I got to watch it all — and LSM tears early and could hit the sack and sleep like a baby.

          National Holiday indeed!

            You are too kind! Several years ago, a whiny student asked,”Why do we have to do this?” I answered, “Because I’m the Goddess of the Classroom and I say so.” I ALWAYS explain the “why” of what I’m teaching when it’s sincerely asked, but I have limited patience with whiners and time-wasters.

          goddess, I was an election clerk and after closing down and counting everything so everything matched, and them packing everything up so I did not come back to my home until late and fearful too of Hillary winning because while clerking no outside information allowed. When I asked my husband who won and he said Trump I and you truly were crying for God saving our country. As I am in CA this was even more remarkable altho CA won’t tell you but 40% did vote for Trump here. God heard and we won and continue winning. Back to real freedom and rights. I lived and worked under socialism for years and it is only about 1/2 step below communism (dictatorship as in Cuba, Venezuela, and elsewhere, and even being pushed in our America because of ignorance of lousy education and outsiders and the DNC going rogue communist in 1963 has caused us to wake up and say we are going to take back our Republic and with Trump MAGA!

            I worked as an election judge (that’s what they’re called in Illinois). When I finally got home I stayed up all night to watch the coverage and his speech. Then I drove to 2 gas stations at 4:30am to get newspapers. I have it written down: 11/9/16 @1:40am (my time). This is when all the talking heads were forced to choke out the words “Donald Trump has just become the 45th President of the United States”.

            I was so freakin tired I couldn’t sleep but couldn’t jump up and celebrate either. I felt a wave of deep relief wash over me. Sweet relief.

        I sat in our living room and watched the television waiting for the corrupt media to give in and have to say that Trump won the election. It was going on 3 am when they finally” said VSGDJT had won. It was one of the happiest times in my life. I went to bed with a smile on my face and gratefulness in my heart that God gave Trump to us. I have loved that man ever since.

      Here is my story:
      Starting on August 30th I was in and out of the hospital doing a pretty good imitation of someone not long for this world. I could barely walk but had my absentee ballot sent to me (my doctors/hospital were in another city) and got a taxi to take me to the post office. Somehow I made it in to mail by ballot – fortunately there were no steps. On election night I went to sleep – certain that we would win – I just didn’t see how it could be any other way.

      BTW – I’m fine now so that’s 2 miracles in this one little story.

I cried tears of joy when our VSGPOTUS won. I will never, ever forget that day. What happened in Granite City today should be the headlines of our fake Daily Herald tomorrow wihich will instead probably feature some anti-Trump tidbit.

  2. Ausonius says:

    Local ABC affiliate here in Columbus, Ohio concentrated on the protesters, showed the protesters’ signs, talked about how packed the area was with protesters, had an interview with one woman protester, and did admit that “anti-protesters” (i.e. Trump supporters) were also present.

    Basically nothing about the message of the economy and manufacturing making a comeback.

    And this is the bias at a local station!

    That was a different kind of a speech at the end. After the employees, he went off script, started talking about NATO and the press. It was like he knew other networks were covering him, so he was talking to new voters, convincing them of his plans for America, and he was warning people about the negative media. He explained his strategy slowly and deliberately. Very persuasive.

        Cuppa, I read food labels on occasion… and I have noticed, “soy protein” is included in the ingredients listing, probably to augment some meat products (on frozen pizzas, especially). I have wondered if it also happens with the fast food burgers people buy. That may be why McD’s has said, “2 all beef patties” in their commercials.

          Yep, the fabled “mystery meat” 🙂 I’ve seen it used a lot as an extender, and sometimes as a sort of flavor-enhancer (flavor-“dehancer”?). Back in the ancient days of yore, folks would use finely-chopped onions, shredded bread, and a raw egg as extenders and enhancers to ground beef. Worked well, and was nutritious too when there wasn’t enough ground round to go around 🙂

          Nestle also has this habit of saying “Our Promise: Good ingredients for good taste. Without flavor-enhancer additives”. Hmmm. What is yeast extract doing in something that isn’t a baking mix??? Sigh… Beats MSG, though.

            Cuppa, wasn’t it was in the late 80’s, early 90’s where we, collectively, went through a “beef is bad for you” mantra which eventually included butter. 🙄 I bought a bag of soy granules and a cookbook. I also use to purchase those tubs of “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.” Those trends were short-lived for me.

            I still use the chopped onion, shredded bread and egg add-ins for ground beef because they taste good and they help to firm up the ground beef so it maintains its loaf form. I reverted back to butter because of the taste, margarine is flavorless. When the reports of trans fats in margarine came out, I felt vindicated. Besides, takes less butter (than margarine) to get good flavor.

            Good explanation here on the difference between yeast and yeast extract – the extract is nutritious and plain yeast is not:



            • Cuppa Covfefe says:

              The problem for me was that Maggi was claiming they were using no enhancements, when in point of fact they were. Maggi (before they were bought) didn’t used to do that.
              Also, Nestle is telling the folks in Vittel (town of the water with that name) that THEY, Nestle, have superior rights to the water, over the town. Which is sinking.

              Some friends of ours live near there, and we toured the (for lack of a better term) shrine to water. Interesting. And some of the water is piped up to a fountain display, where you can fill your own cup/bottle with Vittle, fresh from the well, as it were. Nice place, though.

              And recently making the rounds is another “I Can’t Believe it’s not”… 🙂

                I’ve never used any Maggi products and believe the product you spoke of may be similar to one I use for brown gravies/sauces, etc. My mother used Kitchen Bouquet when I was a child and I’ve carried on that tradition. Ingredients listing did not cause me any concerns. Don’t know if it’s available in Europe.

                One would think Nestle is aware it is causing a potential environmental crisis if Vittel is sinking. What about surrounding towns? I suspect Vittel’s officials are powerless against a major international corporation. Who could remedy the sinking water table? Moreover, they may have had their pockets lined… you know – a common practice all over the world, including here. Doubt the EU has a governing body willing to intercede. because it affects the peon citizenry.

                Loved the Novichok meme. Funny, yet kind of sad.

    I am a stock trader and watched my charts on election night. When Hillary won a State the Market would go down. When Trump won a State the market would go up. I knew by my stock charts the moment Trump won.

    However, I saw this poll of 1,000 registered voters from each State (50,000) equally democrat, republican and independent. This was in July prior to the election and it had Trump the winner by a very comfortable margin. I never worried about Trump being elected President after I becoming aware of this poll taken in July 2016.

      Was watching TV, keeping score with online vote-tally sites, and of course reading with my friends here in the Treehouse. And one thing that was really amazing: There was very little hand wringing. Oh, a little nervousness from time to time, but whenever someone would start to go out on the ledge, several others would say Calm down, we’ve got this. Yes, even when we were behind for awhile. The confidence level here, as compared to almost all other pro-Trump websites, was just amazing.

      And we have Sundance to thank for that! He told us to ignore most polls, to pay close attention to rallies and speeches, to note all the anecdotal evidence we’d been seeing leading up to that day. He never wavered, which allowed most of us here to relax and enjoy the night, which otherwise would have been too stressful to endure.

    What an amazing speech, just when you thought his last one was his best. He was among the patriots and workers who represent the backbone of America – Steel; and he paid them the credit they deserved (along with the miners and the people who get the raw materials to the mills).

    Who writes these speeches? No matter, he was off script and speaking from his heart more often than not. Fantastic sense of pride and patriotism this man has for “US.”

    Favorite line? Too many to list; but, at the end, he was all about the deploreables, those of us who just go to work and do our jobs.

    I needlessly worry about most everything. What are we gonna do after his 2nd term?

    God bless and watch over this amazing individual!
