E161204ven as Dr. Jill Stein, who has yet to concede her loss in the Election of 2016 although she won only 1% of the popular vote, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who did concede the election to President-elect Donald J. Trump on Nov. 9, are still trying to force the taxpayers of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to foot the lion's share of the cost of the recounts that Stein, who couldn't win even if both Trump and Clinton conceded and renounced the votes they received. As the social progressives continue to tar and feather Trump in the leftwing media, the American people—many of whom never voted for him, and many who never voted for anyone—are now addressing him as Mr. President-elect because of Trump's negotiating an agreement with Carrier™ to keep it's Indianapolis air conditioning plant open, thereby saving 1,000 jobs. (In addition to closing the Indianapolis plant, closed also would have been the corporate office of Carrier, which would have moved to Mexico but remains in Indiana.)

As President-elect Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Spence visited the Carrier Plant on Wednesday, Nov. 30, the New York Times chose to minimize what Trump, not yet President, was able to accomplish. Instead of lauding what not-yet President Trump and still-Indiiana Gov. Pence did, the New York Times chose to focus on another business, 100 miles from Indianapolis in Sellersburg, Ind. (just across the border from Kentucky), the Manitowec Company. Manitowec, the parent company, is the world's largest foodservice kitchen and restaurant equipment manufacturer. Spun off was Manitowec Foodservice (which employs 84 people). Foodservice is now in the final stage of closing its US operations (which makes beverage dispensers and ice machines)—a drag on its US sales, which exceeded $1.5 billion in 2015. My personal belief is that the New York Times was trying to bait the President-elect to try to "save" a spin-off that can't be saved—and by failing, mitigate the Carrier success.

In the midst of President-elect Trump's pre-inauguration successes, and the negative Stein-Clinton attempt to upset the apple cart and deny the President-elect the Oval Office he honestly and fairly won, the leftwing political pundits who don't hold out any hope for Clinton's stealing an election irretrievably lost, are already posting the odds not only on which establishment Republican will likely challenge Trump in 2020, but which Democrat will prevail to challenge Trump as the social progressive nominee (with most odds-makers certain it won't be Hillary Clinton whose tarnished, malefesant-stained past just cost the Democrats not only the presidency but control of Congress).

The Democrat who will challenge Trump in 2020 will very likely be more socialist than ever since the Communist Party USA began making major inroads into the Democratic Party beginning with the election of "New Democrat" Bill Clinton in 1992 (largely financed by the Rockefeller Foundation and key members of the Bilderbergers [including George Soros] who were determined to fracture America's industrial complex steel grip over the world by exporting not just jobs, but America's industrial-military-might to the third world)—divesting the United States of much of its manufacturing of military weaponry from munitions companies and aeronautical and automotive companies like Boeing, Ford, Chrysler and General Motors. Boeing and GM have corporate headquarter offices in both China and the United States. GM, which shared one of the largest bail-outs with competitor Chrysler is now called "China Motors" by a majority of the American consumers who are, in many cases, unemployed or under-employed job seekers, and who are increasingly paying attention to which former enemies of the United States are now building our products with our technology and, most of all, with our jobs.

Being a businessman and entrepreneur and not a community organizer, president-elect Donald Trump understands something about manufacturing that the current occupant of the White House doesn't. And, what's more, Trump understands why it's critical for the survival of the United States to not only keep American jobs here, but to force American-branded products, manufactured in other countries, to return their factories to the United States—and banning American branded goods made outside the United States from reaching local markets here. It's the "WHY" that's important.

Not only do we no longer possess the industrial wherewithal to convert peacetime manufacturing to wartime manufacturing, we surrendered our industrial might to our deadliest enemies—the Muslim world, the People's Republic of China and the re-emerging Soviet Union which tricked America's corrupt politicians who are still being spoon-fed millions of dollars in bribes (i.e., campaign contributions) to write the laws the princes of industry need to erase America's national sovereignty by erasing our borders through NAFTA, thus making America a puppet state in a global union, as well as making the US Supreme Court subservient to the World Court in the Hague.

If the United States was attacked by one or more of our enemies tonight, what factories do we still have in the United States that could quickly be converted to war production like we did in 1917 and again in 1941? None. And, what steel mills could supply us with the steel we need for the hulls of aircraft carriers, nuclear submarines and battleships, or what steel and aluminum mills would supply us with the sheet metal we would need for jet fighters and bombers? None. And tanks and personnel carriers? None. The EPA has pretty much put the steel industry out of business. We have been disarmed from within. Those ecological-environmental politicians we keep electing are destroying America.

Of course, we could call on our Chinese, Indonesian or Muslim factory owner-friends in Asia and the Middle East to pull the Chrysler, Chevrolet and GMC trucks from their assembly lines and gear up the production of war materials so America could meet the new threat to liberty. But, we've already "met" that threat. That's who the princes of industry and the barons of banking are now in bed with. They're the United States' 20th century enemies, our biggest trading partners who now own the factories that once made America great. Whose weapons do you think they will be making when that day arrives? Donald Trump the businessman, not Barack Obama the community organizer, recognized the imperative need to bring those factories back to the United States immediately—and why. And, it's Barack Obama the community organizer, and not Donald Trump the businessman, who is granting permanent residency to radicalized Muslims from Africa and the Mideast and banned, from polite journalistic use, the term "radial Islamic terrorist" and "radical Islamic extremists" because, although those on the far left are extremists themselves, they view themselves as centrists.

You may remember, when Donald Trump was campaigning in Indiana in June, the subject of Carrier moving their Indianapolis plant and corporate office to Monterrey, Mexico, Trump promised the people working for Carrier that he would do something about it. Barack Obama scheduled a rebuttal campaign-stop to let the good folks in Indianapolis know that campaign promises like Trump made are not meant to be kept.

When a Carrier employer, Eric Cotton,.commented to Obama that, in Indianapolis, what jobs are left are soon to be leaving, and asked Obama what was in store for Indianapolis, Obama replied: "When somebody says—like the person you just mentioned that I'm not going to advertise for—that he's going to bring all of these jobs back, well how exactly is he going to do that? What are you going to do? There's no answer to it. He just said, 'I'm going to negotiate a better deal.' How? What—how are you going to do that? How, exactly, are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And, usually the answer is," Obama continued, "he doesn't have an answer." Obama concluded, "that's because he didn't have an answer. Those jobs are gone."

That's the difference in the thinking of a businessman and a community organizer. The businessman knows how to negotiate a deal. The community organizer doesn't.

That's one reason why, when the election results came in like an electoral avalanche at the Clinton Campaign headquarters at the Jacob Javits Center in New York a couple of hours after the Clinton staff members and invited guests uncorked the champagne bottles and began celebrating Hillary's victory over Donald Trump, the partiers were stunned as the impenetrable Blue Wall collapsed with Wisconsin's 10 electoral votes, putting Trump over the top with 270 electoral votes. Pennsylvania put Trump at 290 Electoral votes with Michigan solidifying the win with its 16 votes, ending the race with Trump at 306 Electoral votes to Hillary's 232 vote.

Hillary Clinton picked the Javit's Center for her victory dance because of its glass ceiling—which was supposed to represent Hillary Clinton's win over Donald Trump as her breaking the biggest glass ceiling of them all—the presidency of the United States. Clinton and her campaign manager, John Podesta, sat watching the counts, hoping for the miracle that would return Wisconsin and Pennsylvania to the Clinton column. Not only did it not come, Michigan turned red as well, dashing Clinton's hopes of a victory.

Fox News and the Alternative Media proclaimed the news: The Queen is Dead! Long Live Trump! As the word spread, the George Soros-financed protests which quickly escalated into Hillary Clinton instigated Black Lives Matter riots, broke out. Conservative bloggers got out into the the streets and began talking to protestors who turned out to be Soros-paid protestors, earning up to $1,500 per week. Most, when asked who they voted for, admitted they hadn't voted. Those who had voted, voted for Clinton. Clearly, big money was backing the protests in an attempt to drive public opinion against Trump. It didn't work.

In the end, small independent hard news junkies in the streets began to control the flow of news. The news stories which ended up being covered were mostly about Trump's victory and his vision of rebuilding America. The owners of the nation's social media sites joined forces to warn cybernews seekers that they were being fooled by rightwing purveyors of fabricated "FAKE NEWS."

The "fake news" websites which are usually more honest in their reporting than the New York Times, have now been branded by the leftwingnut-owned social media search engines as "Fake News," thus assuming for themselves the arbitrary right to tell you what you should believe or not believe; suggesting to Yahoo, Google or Bing users that the conservative alternative news sites are inaccurate and contain socially-biased views of what's really happening in the United States and around the world. The fact that social media branded most alternative media sites as Fake News tells you more people are getting their news from alternative media than from the leftwingnut fourth estate.

News websites in the cybersphere use specific verbiage to describe radical Islamic extremists or terrorists who are now being labeled by the gurus of social media as—you guessed it—extremists or racists.

In my case, I have special buzzwords to describe the princes of industry, the barons of banking, the courtesans of commerce and the political leftwingnuts. I call them the princes of industry, the barons of banking, and the courtesans of commerce. And I politely call the elected social progressives (who are financed by the leftist princes of industry, the barons of banking and the courtesans of commerce) as leftwingnuts. There just aren't any better nouns in the human vocabulary to describe any of them. Accuracy, after all, is primo in the world of the alternative media.

As social media millionaires slam the conservative voice of American bloggers, they supported the Islamic Muslim Brotherhood's use of social media to organize anti-government protests in Egypt, which led to the overthrow of the government of Hosni Mubarak, in Tunisia to overthrow the government of Tunisian strongman President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and the Libyan government of Muammar Muhammad al-Gaddafi in 2011. And, they don't seem to have a problem with ISIS using social media to radicalize American Muslims or to recruit terrorists around the world. What's wrong with this picture? And where is the US Department of Homeland Security? Because there's something wrong with social media's priorities. They refer to patriotic Americans reporting what the leftwingnuts are doing as fiction, and what ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood are doing to restore the Ottoman Empire as a global caliphate as an acceptable use of social media to overthrow governments.

Those same social media leftwingnut have become the purveyors of the odds of who might be the frontrunners four years from now. Future presidential candidates are not part of the dinner conversations around the kitchen table in the homes of working class Americans today. They're still savoring the sweet taste of the biggest political upset in US political history.

Now, around the formal dining rooms in the Park Avenue mansions in New York, the princes of industry, the barons of banking and the courtesans of commerce and the political leftwingnuts who, during the GOP primaries, had their fingers crossed that Trump wouldn't prevail—are wondering what candidate they can put up that will be able to beat Trump after four years of what America sees in the President-elect today.

Is there another political race left in Hillary? The communist and social progressive oddsmakers are now listing her as a 20/1 favorite in 2020. But when the sun sets on the Clintons, who are facing criminal charges ranging from the mishandling of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation funds, to allegations of frauds and malfeasance with respect to Hillary's private email scandal and to allegations of fraudulent gifts made by foreign governments to the Clinton Foundation in exchange for waivers and approvals by the Secretary of State which should lead to a grand jury or Justice Department indictment. Clinton should easily be is found guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors, the penalty of which, at minimum, will be a lifetime ban of serving in any federal government position (18 USC § 1001) and/or five to 20 years in prison.

While the Rockefellers will likely dismiss another Clinton election foray, other elitist leftwingnut politicos are probably already contemplating other social progressive leftwingnuts for the office of President. Bovada Sportsbook ranks Senators Elizabeth Warren [D-MA] or Tim Kaine [D-VA], at 14/1; Senators Corey Booker [D-NJ] or Amy Klobuchar [DFLP-MN] with 20/1 odds. It needs to be pointed out that, like Socialist Bernie Sanders who is an Independent voting Democrat, so is Klobuchar a part-time Democrat who becomes a non-socialist only when someone is treating her like a real Democrat and not a Farmers' Labor Party member. (Which, of course, makes you wonder why the oddsmakers would bet on unelectable candidates like Sanders, Klobuchar and Senator-elect (and former CA Attorney General) Kamala Harris [D-CA] , who is polling at 33/1. Harris, the daughter of a Jamaican black man and a mother from India, was elected California Attorney General in 2010 and again in 2014.

On Nov. 4, 2016 she was elected to the US Senate, replacing Barbara Boxer. Neither of Harris' parents were born in the United States and, although she was, diehard Article II advocates will view this Jamacian-American, Indian-American, Black-American as being non-eligible to run for President. In point of fact, she is ineligible to run for President, but not because her dad was born in Jamaica and Mom was born in India, but because most Americans are oblivious to the fact that Article II of the Constitution is gender-biased.

There are two social progressive views on the right of women—without a constitutional amendment—to seek, and hold, the office of President. First, the social progressive cites the economic evolution of civil rights as tacit approval of women gaining the right to seek the highest office in the land since women throughout the late 19th and 20th century were running for President and the courts did not stop them.

Since women received the right to vote in 1920, there is an assumption that the right to hold the highest office in the land was included because the right to vote and the right to hold office are Siamese twins. Wrong. The 19th Amendment very narrowly defines a woman's right to vote without granting her the right to run for the highest office in the land by limiting the rights granted in the 19th Amendment: "The right of the citizens to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States." There is nothing said in the 19th Amendment other than women would have the right to vote. If that amendment included the right to hold the Office of President then Congress would not have had to proffer a gender nullification amendment. In other words, had Clinton won the 2016 Election, Vice President Tim Kaine would have constitutionally had to have been sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.

How do I know that? Because if those rights naturally and automatically extended as civil rights to women expanded, it would not have been necessary for legislators to propose or ratify the 19th Amendment in 1920; nor would Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch [R-UT] and Congressman Dana Rohrabacher [R-CA] have had to propose The Equal Right to Govern Amendment on Oct. 5, 2004, making it appear as though it favored popular governors like Arnold Schwarzenegger [R-CA] or moderate Gov. Jennifer Granholm [D-MI] when, in fact, every member of the House and Senate knew what they would be voting on would be the Gender Nullification Act of 2004 with an additional caveat—a provision to allow naturalized citizens who had lived in the United States for at least 20 years prior to seeking office, to run for the presidency. In 2004, both George Soros and David Rockefeller had their eyes on Illinois State Senator Barack Obama. Why?

Because both men knew the only president who would ever willingly surrender our national sovereignty to the globalists in Europe would be a non-American with no inherent loyalty to this country. The Founding Fathers knew that, too, when they placed such rigid restrictions on candidates for president—that he must be a natural born US Citizen of natural born parents—thus fully stipulating what a natural born citizen was. Which is why Hatch and Rohrabacher proposed The Equal Right to Govern Amendment to the US Constitution, and that's precisely the reason why not even a Republican majority House and Senate could enact it. Congress saw the Equal Right to Govern Amendment as the Hillary Clinton Right to Govern Amendment. Congress didn't buy it. The Amendment never became a Constitutional Resolution.

Had Hillary Clinton stayed out of the presidential fray in 2015-16 it's likely when the connections between her dual purpose State Department/Clinton Foundation private email server became public, it wouldn't have attracted so much FBI scrutiny. And, when US Attorney General Loretta Lynch did her boss a favor not to indict Clinton (because a new smear on Hillary's already swiss cheese reputation isn't really anything new, but when it also smears the guy in the Oval Office and becomes political fodder in all the major newspapers in the world it could destroy Barack Obama's political "afterlife."

Obama has expectations of being in the running for the job as the world's 10th Secretary-General of the UN upon the retirement of António Manuel de Oliveira Guterres, the former Prime Minister of Portugal who will replace retiring UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon on Dec. 31, 2016. Helping the Clinton Criminal Conspiracy escape their crimes now might well end that dream.

The DC whispering political grapevine is suggesting that Bill and Hillary Clinton are begging Obama to pardon Hillary for her 18 USC § 1001 infractions, since this felony will forever ban her from holding any federal government position. By the way, the same law bans retired Gen. David Petraeus from becoming Secretary of State or, for that matter, from holding any position in the Trump Administration—or anyone else's, forever.

The United States government, for all of its faults, still realizes that loose lips still sink ships. Too bad Hillary didn't. But, when you think you—like every leftwingnut in Washington, DC—are above the laws that ordinary American are obligated to obey, you suddenly discover that when the other side of the aisle takes control of every facet of government, the age of accountability has arrived and the swamp draining begins.

As Obama contemplates the highest socialist political office in the world in 2021, he has to realize how important his saving, today, whatever part of his legacy he can because of what it will mean in the post-presidency phase of his life tomorrow. Today, he has to realize that saving any part of the Obama legacy isn't going to come through the failed presidential bid of Hillary Clinton or the fact that Nancy Pelosi bribed her way back into what will prove to be the most powerless minority leadership role in the House since the Civil War, but because of the successful coup d'etat of Donald J. Trump.

Obama, who is still protecting Clinton, because of the fear of political spillover on his own political legacy, may not realize it, but should Michelle Obama who, like Hillary, is currently favored at 12/1, developed aspirations to occupy the Oval Office in 2020 or 2024, it will be easier for her to achieve if her husband isn't sharing the indelible political sins of Crooked Clinton. Campaigning for Evil Hillary in the last days of the Campaign of 2016 may have appeased Soros and the communists in this country enough that Obama is allowed to cull the dead baggage from either dragging down his efforts to follow Guterres as UN Secretary General of his wife's ambition to follow Trump as President of the United States.

If the Obama Justice Department brought Hillary Clinton before a federal grand jury for her criminal conduct as Secretary of State by trading waivers for millions of dollars in speaking fees for her, Chelsea or Bill, and other donations to the Foundation that were simply bribes; and if Obama engineered the indictments of Bill, Hillary and Chelsea before January 20, he could rightfully claim that his Administration, not Trump's, began draining the swamp in the Washington, and Trump merely continued the work Obama began. Now, how's that for a legacy? Scary, isn't it?

According to Paddy Power Sports Book, Michelle Obama is leading the Democratic pick for 2020 as of today—with 8/1 odds that she will be the 2020 socialist pick for the Democratic nomination. But, to get there, she needs to be as clean as a houndstooth. Which means her husband has to dump his Clinton baggage. According to BBC, the soon-to-be former First Lady would make a great candidate—particularly if her husband is in line to succeed UN Secretary General António Manuel de Oliveira Guterres in 2021 or 2025.

Strange, isn't it, that as the star rises on the fortunes of one former First Lady's husband, it usually sets on another one. If Hillary Clinton fails to steal the White House Donald J. Trump honestly won, is there another run in her future? While Donald Trump won the biggest upset in political history, there will be no big-money backing a Clinton come-back. Nor is there any likelihood of a Chelsea Clinton run, now or ever. There is no star power in her, and what was attached to mommy's name is fading fast. Nor is there any in the name of her real father, Webster Hubbell of the Rose Law Firm and Whitewater fame, Chelsea's biological father.

Hillary Clinton almost succeeded in doing in 2016 what Franklin D. Roosevelt tried to do when he launched his own third run for the White House in 1940. FDR, like Clinton, thought the only way he would win a third term was if he had no opposition. Hillary knew the only way she would win the Democratic nomination in 2016 would be if she had no opposition. To guarantee she would win, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, rigged the Democratic nominations so that only Hillary could win. But, on Nov. 9 when the votes poured in, Hillary learned that the only way she could have won the presidency was to do what FDR tried, and failed, to do—Have both parties agree not to oppose her.

Because they are usually backed almost entirely by the fortunes of the princes of industry, the barons of banking and the courtesans of commerce, the elitist rich who feed politicians campaign money like farmers feed fodder to their crops, only back potential winners and not the losers seeking a second run for the roses. The run for the roses is usually a one time romp on the political merry-go-round. If Obama wins the eye of the globalists to replace Guterres in 2021, the sun will also be shining on Michelle Obama in 2020.

A point to think about for the skeptics who know that Michelle Obama, when asked a few weeks ago if she would ever run, replied: "I will not run for president. No. Nope. Not going to do it. I have no intention of going back there." In 1997 when I predicted the winners of the 2000 Election as George W. Bush [president] and Dick Cheney [vice president] and the losers as Al Gore, Jr. [president] and Joe Lieberman [vice president], Bush-43 continued to insist for over a year that he would not run, and if elected, he would not serve. Yet, in the end, my prediction became fact. He did run. He did get elected, and as Commander-in-Chief, President Bush occupied the White House for 8 years.
