In the six weeks leading up to Donald Trump’s Presidential inauguration on January 20, I thought it was a good idea to look back and reflect on the strategies and good fortunes that contributed to the biggest political upset in recent memory.

Over the coming weeks we will have a series chronicling some of the most surprising, or perhaps not so surprising, causes for the nation’s political landscape to be turned upside down.

The Party Who Cried “Racist”

We heard it all throughout the election cycle, pretty much right from the beginning. “Donald Trump is a racist”, “everyone who votes for and supports for Donald Trump is a racist”, “Trump is only supported by uneducated white males who are afraid of people of other races”. Apparently the belief was something like as long as you something enough times, regardless of veracity, you could successfully paint this caricature of someone that everyone would see, instead of actually paying attention to the person himself.

This resulted in Trump and all his supporters enduring over a year of basically having to either live in the closet or be immediately discredited and vilified with no way to defend themselves.

While childish and petulant, this strategy seems to have become a true hallmark of the Democratic Party platform. You can say whatever you want about someone you’re trying to get everyone to dislike, and it doesn’t matter if it’s true. As long as you say it often enough and loudly enough, people will not only believe it, but hop on that wagon and continue repeating it, so the message keeps getting louder and louder.

Democrats have effectively cornered the market on playing all kinds of cards, whether it’s calling people racist, or sexist, or homophobic, or whatever the new phobia-du-jour is this week. And by the way, this behavior was not exclusive to Democrats. Many forget the primaries where former candidate Mitt Romney tried to persuade voters by accusing Trump of “trickle down racism”, whatever that means.

As pretty much the unofficial (official) arm of the Democratic Party, the media was entirely complicit in perpetuating these accusations. ABC, CBS News, NBC, all had a massive clear bias that they did not want you to see this man in a positive light. A once apparently “neutral” media showed its true colors this election season, fabricating stories with the sole purpose of ensuring the viewer had a lower opinion of Trump. 24 hour “news” networks were the worst culprits on television.

There’s never enough material to cover a whole 24 hour news cycle, but that didn’t stop them from inviting select guests on to show why Donald Trump is a racist. Publications such as the Huffington Post and Washington Post, who don’t have to answer to FCC regulations, or apparently slander and libel laws, were far more cavalier with shaming Trump and his following day after day.

In the end, however, the people enjoyed the privacy of their ballot box, where no one could see what they were going to select and berate them into changing their inclination, and millions cast their votes for Trump. The “Silent Majority” was a creation of the Democratic Party, and in the end they were defeated by their own monster.

    After all this, how in the HELL can anyone honestly admit that they want to be a Democrat?? Soros, Clinton, Pelosi, and the rest of the band of IDIOTS have DESTROYED the party. The lies, denials, evil doings are all beyond belief. Threats against Electors, paying rioters, satanism, spirit cooking, election rigging (not the Russians). I hope Donald (after Jan 20th) rounds them all up (including Hillary & Bill) and sends them all into outer space.

      Dan, they all thought they were untouchable…I’d settle for Congressional hearings, or even the good ‘ole legal manner of warrants and subpoenas. Let the rats be rounded up in cuffs. have to post bail and get all that delicious media coverage they always want.

        • Mike0oSS

          Democrat and Republican establishment need eachother as foils to distract the average citizen from their globalist intentions.

    • Cedrik Thibert

    • Cedrik Thibert

    I resented being called names just because I had a different view point. I don’t like being grouped into a category with everyone else, I worked hard for my education. I am a white college educated female veteran and had no respect at all for Hillary Clinton. I am glad she lost, she needs to fade away into everyday life and stay out of politics. I don’t like the fact at all that the Democratic party is out there accusing everyone that doesn’t think like them a racist or what ever. They are actually the ones that are racist, bigoted and whatever else. I am an independent voter and used my freedom to vote for TRUMP

    The news media got a thrill ‘up their leg’ as Chrissy Matthews said once BO stole
    the first election and then second as we all know now was done with massive
    voter fraud in California and NY and Detroit and Pennsylvania etc..but it just
    wasn’t enough for Hellary to steal the white house! The became even more of a
    far leftist bias machine of propaganda and lies for the demoncraps and ignored
    the scandals and lies and corruption and failure of BO and their policies! PMSBNC
    even did ‘forward’ commercials featuring their so called news anchors! how bias
    can you be? They got Hollyweird and Poop stars behind them to brainwash all
    those morons who think these people are smart and know it all so they listen to
    them! The fake ‘comedy’ news shows are taken as real news! It’s just absurd!
    The left isn’t giving up they have become even more of a dangerous group!
    Voters need to continue to support Trump and stand up against the far leftist!

    As a very mixed-race female, I had to stand strong in the face of withering looks, passive-aggressive comments and even theft of my Trump sign in order to stand up for my rights as a free American to support, in my opinion, the best candidate this country has seen in a long while. I thank God everyday that Trump won. And, I pray every day that he makes it safe and sound to his inauguration.

    The victory of Donald Trump – this was the finger of God. Let me remind here a fragment of an ancient vision: “And [the king of the north] will go back (to) his land with great wealth [1945. This detail indicated that Hitler will attack also the Soviet Union and will fight to the bitter end. In the beginning there were no signs of such the ending of this war]; and his heart (will be) against the holy covenant [hostility towards Christians. Soviet Union introduced state atheism]; and will act [it means activity in the international arena]; and turned back to his own land [1991-1993. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. Russian troops returned to their country]. At the appointed time [he] will return back.” (Daniel 11:28, 29a) The return of Russia in this context means the breakup of the European Union and NATO. Many countries of the former Eastern block will reconcile with Russia. Such is the plan of God.

    It is no coincidence that Barack Obama wins presidency in 2008 and 2012. God in this way has secured us against a premature world war. The first should be the return of Russia, and then the war, and not vice versa. (Daniel 11:29,30; Matthew 24:7; Revelation 6:4; cf. Jeremiah 1:12) The victory of Donald Trump also is not accidental. There is hope for improvement in Russian-American relations. The world will be safer, at least for a moment.

    In 1882 British troops occupied Egypt. Great Britain then took the role of “the king of the south”. Around the same time, Russia expanded its influence in the region, which previously belonged to Seleucus I Nicator, and took the role of “the king of the north”. (Daniel 11:27)

    All the details of this vision are being fulfilled from the time of ancient Persia, in chronological order.
