We have never seen anything like this in the history of American politics. Donald Trump’s shocking victory on election night is nothing short of a modern day miracle. Several weeks ago I told my readers that it would take the biggest political miracle ever in order for Trump to win, and I had been strongly urging them to vote, but even early on election night I was skeptical that Trump could actually pull it off. Initially the results coming out of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio looked rather ominous, and a lot of Trump supporters were freaking out. But those initial numbers strongly reflected early voting results, and those results typically favor Democrats. Once the Election Day numbers started rolling in, it was clear that there was a massive unanticipated wave of momentum for Trump.
Once I saw that Virginia was going to be much more tightly contested than anticipated and that Trump had jumped out to a lead in Michigan, I realized that Trump had a really good shot at winning the whole thing.
Once Trump took the lead for good in Pennsylvania, it was all over. In disbelief I began to come to grips with a future that we didn’t think was possible.
Watching Donald Trump speak to the American people after he had been declared the winner was a surreal experience. Donald Trump will become the next president of the United States a little more than two months from now.
Ultimately, it was the American people that decided this election, because the elite were doing their best to absolutely bury him.
Never before has the mainstream media been so openly biased against a major party presidential candidate. For months on end they dumped sewage on Trump, but it didn’t work.
Never before has a major party presidential candidate faced a civil war in his own party on the eve of the election. A whole host of big names in the Republican Party publicly announced that they would not vote for Trump, but it didn’t work. (George Bush, George H.W. Bush, Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, John Kasich, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell)
Never before have we seen a bigger October surprise than the lewd tape from 11 year ago that came out and shocked the world. That would have instantly killed the campaign of any normal politician, but it didn’t kill Trump’s campaign.
From the very beginning it seemed like Trump was at war with almost everyone, and somehow he came out on top in the end.
He beat the Bushes and the Clintons.
He beat the Republicans and the Democrats.
He beat all political elites.
He beat Hollywood and the mainstream media.
He beat the pollsters and the pundits.
He beat the never-Trumpers (Bush, Bush and Bush, Romney, Kasich, Ryan, McConnell, Cruz, Bech, Golberg, Kristol et. al.) and the billionaire donors.
He beat Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Jay Z, Beyonce, George Clooney, Matt Damon and Lebron James, Rosie O’Donnell, Bryan Cranstan, Samuel L. Jackson, Neve Campbell, Natashe Lyonne, Cher, Barbar Steisand, Ne-Yo, Amy Schumer, Chelsea Handler, Jon Stewart, Whoopie Goldberg, Keegan-Michael Key, George Lopez, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
He beat the forces of globalism, elitism and political correctness.
He beat ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and Barack Obama.
He beat them all.
Donald Trump is not perfect and he is not going to be a perfect president, because he didn’t spend his adult life as a politician nor preparing to become a president.
This is about as perfect a moment as you are going to get in American politics.
Donald Trump took on the entire American political universe and he won.
We have never seen anything like it before, and I doubt we will ever see anything like it again.
As an observer of dirty politics, politicians and voter fraud, I became very skeptical as I watched the cold, hard numbers as they kept telling me that a Trump victory was impossible to nearly impossible.
I kept strongly urging people to vote, particularly because the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency was absolutely horrifying for me personally, but I was not optimistic.
In hindsight, perhaps we all should have recognized that the signs were there. For example, it seems a very strange “coincidence” that Donald Trump will be 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old on his first full day as president of the United States. This is a man that appears to have had a date with destiny, and we shall see what happens in the months to come.
Yes, there will be great challenges ahead, but those discussions are for another day.
Today I am just happy, relieved and so thankful that my children and grandchildren NOW have an opportunity to live the American Dream, practice their faith without interference or fear and keep the treasures that they have and will learn.
I am happy that the American people have elected a man that I will be proud to call president.
And I am happy that we are not going to have to endure four years under the most vile, foul, nasty, unpleasant, bad, disagreeable, horrid, horrible, dreadful, abominable, atrocious, offensive, obnoxious, odious, unsavory, repulsive, disgusting, distasteful, loathsome, hateful, nauseating, sickening; disgraceful, appalling, shocking, sorry, shabby, shameful, dishonorable, execrable, heinous, abhorrent, deplorable, monstrous, wicked, evil, iniquitous, nefarious, depraved, debased; contemptible, despicable, reprehensible; godawful, lowdown, lousy, morally wicked, bad and of little worth or value.
Against all odds, Donald Trump won.
At this point I am not exactly sure what comes next for America, but things are definitely looking a lot brighter today than they did yesterday
