While the media and other leftist elites ignore the millions of folks living in “flyover” states, they do so at their own peril; it was this silent majority that put President Trump in the White House. Each week, Liberty Nation gives voice to the hard-working heartlanders who are silent no more.
Rumors were swirling from coast to coast that the sorest loser in history, Hillary Clinton, may throw her weighty power back into the presidential foray as the dwindling Democratic field of candidates is fraught with heart attacks, questions about treasonous activities, and lackluster fundraising efforts. Appearing this week on PBS Newshour, mama Clinton let host Judy Woodruff in on a secret: “Maybe there does need to be a rematch. I mean, obviously I can beat him again.”
The declaration went over as expected – like passing gas in a church pew, as Utahan Wolfe Zappe inquired, “But can you accept the results of the election?”
Dean Alderman of Janesville, WI, flat out called her a nut. “You didn’t beaten Trump the first time. What makes you think there will be a second chance? Not in your lifetime Ding bat!”
Still not your president, Hillary Clinton, went further in her assessment of the 2016 epic loss in a rigged election, and coyly offered, “It truly is remarkable how obsessed he remains with me.”
Perhaps the duly elected president, Donald Trump, is “obsessed” with the woman who couldn’t appear in front of supporters that cold, cold, November night to concede that the nation’s deplorables elected number 45. Wishes of Americans matter not — she won’t go away and it appears in a last gasping effort, Clinton is attempting to stay relevant.
It was a sad week for Hillary – and Democrats, who were terrified she just might try one more time at breaking her ultimate glass ceiling. And the folks in the heartland of American went all in with advice and a history lesson to boot. One heartlander, John Clinton, went even further and brought up voter fraud: “She never won the popular vote. You can’t tell me them three or four tiny spots of blue had more votes than the whole United States which, by the way, was mostly red.”
In a nutshell, those forward-thinking Founding Fathers wanted to avoid the certainty that a large populace could tyrannically rule their new country one day. Hence the Electoral College designed to give all Americans, from urban dwellers to citizens who prefer wide open spaces, a share in the decision-making process of electing the president. It’s worked fine for well over 200 years, until Mrs. Clinton’s stinging loss to the pied piper of deplorable folks in flyover states.
Trump received 304 electoral votes and Clinton 227 – it wasn’t remotely close. From Gilbert, AZ, Penny Brien remembers the 2016 election as if it were yesterday: “But you didn’t beat him the first time – your ‘popular’ vote count that included the dead and illegals isn’t how our elections are won. He took the Electoral College by a landslide. Your hallucinations are getting the best of you.”
Texan Daniel Martinez strategized a campaign for the Clinton matriarch: “I think she should run…. that way our president can send her deeper into the woods and maybe she’ll get lost this time and not find a way back.” Keenan Lewis in Oklahoma suggested tha first, “She should be fitted for the jacket.”
The most Unpopular Politician Ever Award …
Hillary is, frankly, unlikeable. One sometimes wonders if Buddy the First Dog couldn’t stand her either. How she ever rose to the top of the Democratic heap in 2016 is still a mystery of sorts – there are much more likeable liberals to select. And when Judy Dixon of Alabama had her descriptive say, it was applauded by the social media masses: “One day she is going to realize most people despise her, she needs to fade away and keep her mouth shut. She is a boil on the butt of humanity.”
John Jackson made some folks nervous when he went all in with his perceptions from Arkansas:
“YOU are a direct threat to the national security of America. Your foundation was nothing but a shell game for people wanting to have access to our government. Your time is coming. There’s a storm brewing! Stay tuned!”
It was rumored that if Hillary switched her sensible shoe wardrobe for a designer suit, pearls, and heels and went back on the campaign trail, she would certainly be more exciting that the old folks experiencing cardiac arrest or facing down a train barreling in from Ukraine. Even the Republicans would welcome the third-time’s-a-charm candidate just to read the Tweets the president would send out daily. But alas, one sage voter, a union man from Louisiana, insists that Hillary’s tantalizing teaser, “I mean, obviously I can beat him again,” is a bunch of hooey. Or as he pointed out, “35,000 emails says you can’t.”
