Trump returns to campaign mode, rallying supporters, attacking foes, promising a greater America

 

President Trump returned Saturday to campaign mode — holding a rally in a Florida airport hangar in which he again railed against the “dishonest media” and repeated his promises to build a “beautiful” border wall, replace “disastrous” ObamaCare and other familiar lines that rallied him to an unexpected White House win.

The roughly 50-minute speech outside Melbourne, Florida, was quintessential Trump — with the president vowing to help disillusioned Americans find better jobs and live safer, while attacking the news media for unfavorable stories and calling it “a big part of the problem” toward his mission to “make America great again.”

“I am here to tell you about our great progress … and our incredible plans for our future,” said Trump, who since officially taking over the White House in late-January has been unable to hold campaign-style rallies. “I am here because I want to be among my friends and among my people. This was truly a great movement.”

Trump essentially picked up from where he left off during Thursday’s freewheeling, 77-minute press conference in which he accused reporters of knowingly writing incorrect stories to hurt his young administration and perpetuating damaging “fake news.”

“I also want to talk to you without the filters of fake news,” Trump told the estimated crowd of 9,000 at the Orlando Melbourne International Airport near Melbourne. “They have their own agenda.”

On Saturday, he also repeated what he said Thursday about his administration running like a “fine-tuned machine” and that he inherited “one big mess,” knocking back criticism about a rocky start and suggestions that he and his administration are working in coordination with Russia.

The Republican president visited Florida nearly two dozen times during the 2016 presidential campaign, winning the state after President Obama’s 2008 and 2012 victories.

“Thank you,” he said. “This is a state where we all had great victory together.”

The rally, which included about 2,500 protesters outside, also included the kind of unscripted, unconventional stage-craft that riveted voters for roughly 18 months.

This time, first lady Melania Trump started the rally with The Lord’s Prayer. And Trump brought supporter Gene Huber on stage to speak, then admitted such impromptu acts rattle the Secret Service agents who protect him.

Big rowdy events were the hallmark of Trump’s winning presidential campaign.

He has continued to do them, although with smaller crowds, throughout the early part of the transition, during what he called a “thank you” tour.

But until this week, Trump has mostly relied on Twitter to sidestep reporters and on spokespeople, who have struggled at times to deliver his agenda — including plans to temporarily ban travel from seven mostly Muslim nations — to a largely combative press corps.

The event Saturday was put on by Trump’s campaign, rather than the White House.

“I hear your demands. I hear your voices,” Trump said. “And I promise you, I will deliver.”

Asked if the rally was for the 2020 election, spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders called it “a campaign rally for America.”

Asked by reporters aboard Air Force One if a campaign rally was too early, Trump said that “life is a campaign” and that making America great again is a campaign. He added that “it’s not easy, especially when we’re also fighting the press and the media.”

The speech was not without Trump’s familiar, tough talk on crime, border security, radical Islamic terrorism and illegal immigration, too.

“I know you want safer neighborhoods where the streets belong to families and communities, not gang members and drug dealers who right now, as I speak, are being thrown out of the country and will not be let back in,” he said. “We will have strong borders. … Get them to hell out of here.”

Donald Trump Won 7.5 Million Popular Vote Landslide in Heartland – Breitbart

Donald Trump won an overwhelming 7.5 million popular vote victory in 3,084 of the country’s 3,141 counties or county equivalents in America’s heartland.

Fifty-five point seven million out of the 109.3 million Americans who cast their ballots in those counties voted for Trump, while only 48.1 million voted for Hillary Clinton, according to the latest county by county election results reported at Politico. The remaining 5.4 million voted for other candidates.

Trump’s 7.5 million popular vote landslide in America’s heartland, a resounding 7 point victory in those 3,084 counties over Clinton, 51 percent to 44 percent, gave him a 306 to 232 Electoral College landslide. (On Monday night, the director of elections in the office of Michigan’s Secretary of State said that Trump had won the state’s 16 electoral college votes by a narrow margin of 13,107 votes.)

Hillary Clinton, in contrast, had an 8.2 million vote margin in a narrow band of 52 coastal counties and five “county equivalent” cities stretching from San Diego to Seattle on the West Coast and Northern Virginia to Boston on the East Coast. That narrow band included two major cities–Washington, D.C and Baltimore, Maryland–included in the five “county equivalent” cities, and three major cities–Philadelphia, New York, and Boston–which are included in the 52 counties.

Clinton received 70 percent of the 18.4 million votes cast in these 52 elite coastal counties. Donald Trump, in contrast, received only 25 percent of the vote in these counties. The remaining 5 percent went to other candidates.

In elite coastal county after elite coastal county, especially those in Washington, D.C. and its Virginia and Maryland suburbs where so many federal government workers and federal contractors live, Clinton won by margins ranging from four to one to two to one.

Votes cast in the 52 elite coastal counties where Clinton dominated accounted for only 14.4 percent of the estimated 127.7 million total votes cast in the country.

In contrast, the 3,084 counties in America’s heartland, where Trump dominated with a healthy 7 point margin, accounted for 85.6 percent of all votes cast.

Clinton’s 671,066 popular vote margin across the entire country, 61,047,027 votes to Donald Trump’s 60,375,961 votes (according to Politico’s election results website as of Tuesday morning) arose from this huge advantage wracked up in these elite coastal counties.

Clinton received 47.7 percent of the estimated 127.7 million votes cast nationwide, while Trump received 47.2 percent of those votes. Five percent went to other candidates.

Trump campaigned very little in the 23 elite coastal counties in the West Coast states of California, Oregon, and Washington, and only vigorously campaigned in five Northern Virginia counties and Philadelphia on the East Coast.

It is worth noting that virtually all members of the mainstream media reside within this narrow band of elite coastal counties.

Clinton won the 161 electoral college votes in nine of these ten states, as well in the District of Columbia. Among these ten states, Trump won only Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral college votes.

But these nine states experienced the same kind of bimodal divide seen in the rest of the country.

In eight of these nine states (all but Massachusetts) Trump was tied or slightly ahead of Clinton in the popular vote in those counties outside the coastal elite.

Here is the full list of these 52 elite coastal counties:

(California: Alameda, Contra Costa, Humboldt, Los Angeles, Marin, Mendocino, Monterey, Napa, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, San Mateo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, and Ventura; Oregon: Multnomah and Washington; Washington: King and Snohomish; Virginia: Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William (and the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, and Falls Church); Washington, D.C.; Maryland: Baltimore, Charles, Howard, Montgomery, and Prince George’s (and the city of Baltimore); Pennsylvania: Delaware and Philadelphia; New Jersey: Essex, Hudson, Mercer, Middlesex, Passaic, and Union; New York: Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens, and Westchester; Connecticut: Fairfield, Hartford, and New Haven; and Massachusetts: Essex, Middlesex, Norfolk, and Suffolk.)

‘An absolute embarrassment’: This Democratic senator lashes out at Harry Reid over Trump comments – TheBlaze

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) sharply criticized Democratic senatorial leader Sen. Harry Reid (Nev.) late Friday, calling the longtime Democratic leader “an absolute embarrassment to the Senate as an institution, our Democratic party, and the nation.”

Manchin’s comments came in response to Reid releasing a statement on Friday that completely denounced President-elect Donald Trump. In part, Reid labeled Trump a “sexual predator” that “lost the popular vote.”

Machin, who is one of the most conservative Democrats in the Senate, believes Reid’s outright opposition to the will of the people is a disgrace — and that it’s only helping to further divide the nation.

“I want to be very clear, he does not speak for me,” Manchin said of Reid, according to a statement. “As difficult as it is for anyone to lose an election, the American people have spoken and Donald Trump is our President-elect. Senator Reid’s words needlessly feed the very divisiveness that is tearing this country apart.”

“We are Americans first, not Democrats or Republicans first,” he added. “Unfortunately, there are some who forget that at times like these it is wrong to put party and politics above our country.”

Several news publications on Election Day reported that Manchin would begin to caucus with the Republicans in the Senate, but he later denied the reports.

Manchin is up for re-election in 2018.

Trump Wins, the Fight for Change Begins 

 

Now that Donald Trump has won the race for the presidency, he must deliver policies that reflect the populist, anti-globalization feeling which propelled his campaign.

While progressives and Establishment Republicans are quick to dismiss Trump as a man who merely exploited Americans’ ugliest instincts, that dismissal is a serious mistake. Trump tapped into a groundswell of anti-globalization and anti-mass migration feeling that is rising across the U.S. and Europe.

“People really have had enough of the continued failure of a professional career political class who appear to be in it just for themselves, and almost devoid of principles or philosophy.”

“What Trump represents following hard on the heels of Brexit is pro-nation-state democracy, pro-border controls, and sensible immigration policies, and pro-standing up for our culture against the threat of Islamic terrorism,” former UKIP leader Nigel Farage told LifeZette in an exclusive interview.

“I’ve been coming back and forth to America regularly and talking to just huge numbers of people while I’m there and I think the crossover between the mood of our voters in June and the mood of the Donald’s voters now is astonishing,” he said.

“The rational, patriotic, and conservative voices of ordinary people, long suppressed, have once again found utterance in the wake of Brexit and Trump,” said Benjamin Harris-Quinney, chairman of the Bow Group, the U.K.’s oldest conservative think tank.

Harris-Quinney said the post-Trump victory era “will no longer be restrained by PC censorship and faux cries of ‘racism,’ ‘sexism,’ ‘homophobia,’ — and truth has the chance to flourish in the space that has been created.”

It’s not just happening in Britain and the U.S. In France, Marine Le Pen’s Front National is leading the polls heading into the 2017 elections. A poll released last week showed that nearly a full third of Frenchmen — 31 percent — think Le Pen’s hard-line stance on Islam would make the country safer.

In the Netherlands, Geert Wilders and his Party for Freedom are also leading the polls, a result mainly of their anti-Islamic immigration, anti-E.U. platform. Countries such as Hungary and Poland have governments led by national conservative political parties, and in many other countries across Europe, from Switzerland to Scandinavia, right-wing nationalist and populist parties are making substantial gains.

The U.S. political Establishment needs to come to terms with this new reality. The fight for these policies is what motivated voters to vote for Trump in droves, and they will surely hold Trump’s feet to the fire on those issues.

“If something is a pure protest, it isn’t a big enough motivation to get people to go to the polling stations in significant numbers,” Farage said. “There has to be a positive feeling that this is about change, this is about a radical change of direction that will be for the better,” he explained.

“I think too often people who vote for me, for Brexit, for Trump — they’re labeled as being ‘antis,’ they’re labeled as being negatives,” Farage said. “Actually when you poll these people you find, yes, of course they’re unhappy with the way things are but they’re voting for these new phenomena because they see in what’s being offered to them positive policy solutions.” Trump must do his utmost to get Congress to deliver those policy solutions.

People across the West are fed up with the erosion of the middle class that goes hand in hand with globalization, they are fed up with foreign wars, they are fed up with mass migration that threatens both their national security and their national identity, and they are fed up with an oppressive political correctness that stifles free speech and their ability to protest these things.

“People really have had enough of the continued failure of a professional career political class who appear to be in it just for themselves, and almost devoid of principles or philosophy,” Farage said. Trump must follow through on his America First message.

“Either this win takes over the Republican Party or you will see for the first time in a very long while a genuine attempt at a third party in American politics,” Farage predicted.

Setting Patriotism Free from its Bonds


Oct 22, 2016 By Judi McLeod

Patriotism, which is the very heart and soul of America, is Number 1 on the globalists’ Hit List.

Patriotism, now stirring again in every corner of America , will elect a president striving against all odds to ‘Make America Great Again’.

Progressives and their running dog media are resurrecting the dead for votes; patriots resurrecting the living fame of unbridled patriotism.

Starting today and for the next 17 leading to November 8, you can return patriotism to the front of the…
