Saturday Leftovers

Already said what I wanted to say in the last thread. This is just to keep anybody around informed and educated. No charge.

Suicide prevention hotlines see shocking spike in calls after Trump’s win: ‘We’ve never seen this before’
A record number of anguished calls flooded suicide prevention hotlines just before and after Donald Trump secured his shocking presidential victory.
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline received 660 calls between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. Wednesday — 2½ times the average.
“It clearly is and was an indication that there’s a lot of anxiety and fear around the election,” director John Draper told the Daily News.

Obama’s Legacy: The Total Destruction Of The Democratic Party
As the Democratic Party enters a long, lonely road out of power, it should be a lesson and a warning to Republicans. Never build a party apparatus and voter coalition so firmly behind a single, term-limited president. It’s dubious as to whether a successor can keep that winning coalition in place. For Clinton, she failed. In the end, Trump was expected to torpedo GOP gains; that didn’t happen. And Barack Obama will have to watch hopelessly as congressional Republicans–now working with a Trump White House–will undo most of his signature domestic achievements.
Thank God.

DNC Prepares To Elevate Muslim Congressman Ellison To Chief
If you thought the Democrats would respond to Donald Trump’s stunning victory in the 2016 presidential election by attempting to woo back some of the white blue-collar voters they lost over the last eight years, you’re sadly mistaken: they’ll be doubling down on the Obama coalition.
The proof: on Friday, support built dramatically among Democratic insiders like incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) as head of the Democratic National Committee.

Mike Pence Emerging as a Commanding Figure in Trump Administration
Given the dearth of hands-on Washington experience in the inner circle of President-elect Donald J. Trump, Mr. Pence, a former Republican congressman, is emerging as a commanding figure in the administration taking shape as well as the chief conduit between Capitol Hill and the White House.
“My guess is he will be one of the most involved, day-to-day, managerial vice presidents in the history of the republic,” said Representative Jeb Hensarling, a senior Republican from Texas and a close ally from Mr. Pence’s days on Capitol Hill.

Black Trump Supporter’s ‘Apology’ To Liberals Is Laugh-Out-Loud Hilarious
Davis opened by addressing his video to “all of the Trump haters, all of the Hillary Clinton supporters and all of the people who said my Trump was going to lose.”
That’s when things started to get good

UN chief confident Trump will drop rhetoric, show leadership
United Nations (United States) (AFP) – UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon voiced confidence on Friday that Donald Trump will shed the strident rhetoric that propelled him to the White House and engage with the world to confront global crises like climate change.

MSNBC Realise They are Propagandists

‘She Couldn’t Stop Crying’: Hillary Clinton Was ‘Inconsolable’ After Losing The Election To Donald Trump
Her life-long dream of total and complete power was shattered for the second and final time. I can’t find one molecule of sympathy for her. Off to the dustbin.

CNN: Tea Party Patriots Warn Against Priebus for Chief of Staff
“No Washington insider, regardless of who it is, should serve as President Trump’s chief of staff,” Martin said. “Appointing Reince Priebus (or any other DC establishment insider) would make it more difficult, not less, for President Trump to achieve the change the people voted for. It’s time to drain the swamp — not promote insiders beholden to the Washington establishment who helped create it.”

Trump Won Because ‘Racism’? NO, YOU IDIOT!! | Louder With Crowder

Bill Maher asks President-elect Trump to appear on his show
“I want to take this opportunity right now to invite him on this show. … He won. He ran a vicious, vulgar campaign and I gave it back exactly in measure,” the political comedian said. “I was also vicious and vulgar but he won and he did it his way. Nobody gets to sing that song more than Donald Trump.”

Obama’s ‘legacy’ drive lost Florida for Clinton
“Pride goeth before destruction,” Proverbs 16:18 reminds us, and so it was in this election.
The evidence is mounting that President Obama’s overzealous defense of his “opening Cuba” gambit cost Hillary Clinton the state of Florida. That misstep could end up wiping out most of the president’s carefully curated “legacy” achievements.
Then in late October, President Obama went for broke and decided to stick a bigger needle in his opponents’ eye.
He lifted limits on the import of cigars and rum, and then ordered our ambassador to the United Nations to abstain from a vote condemning the US economic embargo on Cuba

SF bracing in case Trump cuts federal funds over sanctuary status
Mayor Ed Lee and San Francisco politicians are bracing for what President-elect Donald Trump lists as one of his main priorities: blocking “all federal funding” for sanctuary cities.
Of that money, $478 million comes directly from the federal government. The balance comes from the federal government via the state of California. The city’s current budget is $9.6 billion.
City officials are making contingency plans in case that money disappears.

Who’s Laughing Now? — This Compilation Of The Media S**t Talking Trump Is The Cherry On Top
TV’s finest have spent the past two and a half days walking back months of Trump ridicule, but like elephants, the Internet video wizards don’t forget.
Let’s review a few of their greatest hits.

108,600 Votes Swing 46 Electoral College Votes to Donald Trump
Grannyism: If a bullfrog had wings he wouldn’t bump his ass
Trump won Pennsylvania, with its 20 electoral college votes, by 68,236 votes, Wisconsin, with its 10 electoral college votes, by 27,257 votes, and Michigan, with its 16 electoral college votes, by 13,107 votes.

      Unlike Obama’s campaign promise to close down Gitmo, Trump’s promise to build that wall is going to actually happen.

    I think it is pretty rich that the Tea Party Patriots were so adamantly opposed to Trump and now they think they can tell him who to pick for his administration. I don’t think so. I don’t especially like the idea of Reince myself, but I’m gonna let Trump decide. Jenny Beth should just stick to her frantic fund-raising emails.
