The 2016 Election: A Victory for Middle American Values?

The 2016 Election: A Victory for Middle American Values?
by Jenni White
county-by-county-vote-nationallyThe election is over. Trump has won. Celebrities are running for the hills, rioting and protests have broken out in major population centers across the country, and I heard from a friend watching, that a talking head at Good Morning America (the Thursday after the election) felt the need to explain the vote as a reality not a nightmare.

Trump, trumped Clinton – there’s no way around that. With the media projecting Hilary as the winner most of last year and throughout the night – even after he took Florida – it was clear by Wednesday morning that the media, liberal America and the celebrity class were shocked beyond reason at the result of this election. I’m not surprised – their total inability to understand the thought processes and lives of middle America represent a majority of reasons for the outcome of this election.

Entertainment and news celebrities live in crystal bubbles surrounded by drooling fans, where they rock swag bags, red carpets and all the free crap designers and beauty companies can throw at them to garner their endorsements. If their movies stink or their news shows can’t make it on cable for even a season, it matters not, they’ll shuffle off to another show created to entertain the masses, dutifully do their stand up-sit down-line recitation or read off their prompter and go home to their glorious three bed three, three bath, three and a half million dollar vintage ranch-style house in the Hollywood hills – or their overpriced Manhattan flat – to spend 15 minutes with their Armani-clad tykes before they trundle off across hand-scraped floors rescued from a 300 year old farm house live-in nanny in tow, housekeeper not far behind warning of their impending dinner cooked by the celebrity chef who will be along shortly.

This isn’t middle America by even the broadest stretch of the imagination.

We here in middle America get up in the morning and work all day – sometimes two jobs to make ends meet – only to watch our health care costs eat up our paychecks, yet we can’t even go to the doctor if we need one because we can’t afford the deductibles for the policies we have because we’re expected to pay the healthcare costs for others who can’t or won’t shoulder the burden themselves.

Scott Adams and The Week I Became a Target – OR – Shadowbanning by Twitter

[Editor’s note: Least you did not know about ‘shadowbanning’ by twitter and feed stream manipulation by other forms of social media.  Here is a personal report from Scott Adams of Dilbert fame.  There is no such thing as a free lunch!/sc]

The Week I Became a Target

This weekend I got “shadowbanned” on Twitter. It lasted until my followers noticed and protested. Shadowbanning prevents my followers from seeing my tweets and replies, but in a way that is not obvious until you do some digging.

Why did I get shadowbanned?

Beats me.

But it was probably because I asked people to tweet me examples of Clinton supporters being violent against peaceful Trump supporters in public. I got a lot of them. It was chilling.

Late last week my Twitter feed was invaded by an army of Clinton trolls (it’s a real thing) leaving sarcastic insults and not much else on my feed. There was an obvious similarity to them, meaning it was organized.

clcradioiconJoin Shelli Dawdy and I on Blog Talk Radio this evening on The Constitutional Liberty Coalition Gets Grizzly as we hear more details about some of the Independence Day Tea Parties that occurred across the country.

CLC member Joan Fabiano of Lansing, MI, will join us to talk about her event at the State Capitol.

This round of Tea Parties didn’t receive the same media focus or buzz that was seen in April. Also, the events occurred on a holiday weekend. Further, there wasn’t a central entity online as also was the case in April. Did any of these phenomenon suppress turn out?

Also, we will get up to date on the status of H.R. 2454, the “Cap & Trade” bill.  When will the Senate vote on this soon? What’s in those 1400+ pages?

Finally, we hope that Liberty Rider, Michael Maresco will have a minute to give us an update on his whereabouts.
