    Trump was all over the news, but Clinton’s scandals — or “scandals” — owned Twitter. There’s no question that Donald Trump dominated media coverage during the 2016 campaign.... But on Twitter, it was a different story. Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as SoS, ... and subsequent WikiLeaks releases that targeted her campaign and the Democratic Party, dominated Twitter discussions about the presidential election during 2016, according to a study put out by the data and polling firm Echelon Insights.

The hack was not of the election's voting machines or voter databases, nor was it of any federal government database or national security secrets. It only targeted the dirty secrets and mob operations of the DNC and its fixer Podesta. Yet Obama responded more forcibly to this hack than he has to more serious acts directed at the federal government or its national secrets. Hackers, earlier in Obama's presidency, stole over ten million confidential records of federal...

    Confidence or arrogance? Obama says he could've beaten Trump. President Obama claims he could have won a third term if he had been allowed to run – but even if he's right, his coattails haven’t done much for the rest of his party. While Obama’s tireless campaigning, broad demographic appeal and message of “hope” and “change” helped propel him to two terms in the White House, his skills on the stump haven’t translated down the ballot. The Democratic Party suffered huge losses at every level... The grand total: a net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional...

    In telephone conversations with Donald Trump, FBI Director James Comey assured the president-elect there was no credible evidence that Russia influenced the outcome of the recent U.S. presidential election by hacking the Democratic National Committee and the e-mails of John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. What’s more, Comey told Trump that James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, agreed with this FBI assessment. The only member of the U.S. intelligence community who was ready to assert that the Russians sanctioned the hacking was John Brennan, the director of the CIA, according to sources who were briefed...

    The latest crusade by the Democrats appears to be a strategy trying to convince enough Republican electors to deny Donald Trump their votes, in order to drop his electoral count below the 270 required, before they meet to finalize the election on December 19th. Donald Trump won 306 electoral votes during the election, but if faithless elector Chris Suprun in Texas follows through with his claim that he will not cast his vote for Trump, then the President-elect will end up at 305. A group of Democrat electors calling themselves the "Hamilton Electors", named after the Broadway play about the...

Wisconsin finalized its recount on the same day that a federal judge issued a stinging rejection of a Green Party-backed request to recount paper ballots in Pennsylvania’s presidential election and scan some counties’ election systems for signs of hacking. Green Party candidate Jill Stein successfully requested, and paid for, the Wisconsin recount while her attempts for similar statewide recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan were blocked by the courts.

    County leaders are hopeful that the $1 trillion infrastructure investment promised by Republican president-elect Donald Trump will have a big impact on the region. Trump has promised to prioritize infrastructure spending in his first 100 days in office. The move is one that Democrats, now in minority positions in both houses of Congress, have said they're willing to support. The plan, which is not yet fully fleshed out, looks to rely heavily on billions of dollars of infrastructure tax credits to private entities. And while Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet Yellen warned recently that weighing down the national debt with...

    The presidential election was so close that many factors were “but-for” causes of Donald Trump’s victory. One that’s been mostly overlooked is Trump’s surprising success with religious voters. According to exit polls, Trump received 81 percent of the white evangelical Christian vote, and Hillary Clinton only 16 percent. Trump did significantly better than the overtly religious Mitt Romney and the overtly evangelical George W. Bush. He likely over-performed among other theologically conservative voters, such as traditionalist Catholics, as well. Not bad for a thrice-married adulterer of no discernible faith.

    Yes, it is good that Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, especially in light of revelations of her private email security breaches and pay-for-play administration of the State Department. If true, she belongs in prison. However, what is ominous is the number of voters who, despite all that was known of her crimes, still voted for her. This is not a sign of a healthy American electorate. It seems the same citizens who voted for Barack Obama in 2012 after his disastrous first four years voted for her. Many people who go the polls in our generation are simply not thinking....

    Michigan will become the second state to conduct a recount of ballot casts during the 2016 presidential election. U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith early Monday morning issued an order for Michigan election officials to begin counting ballots starting at noon. The ruling follows a request from Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein after a razor-thin margin made the state the last to be called in the November election. President-elect Donald Trump ended up winning Michigan's 16 electoral votes by just 0.2 percentage points, or just under 10,000 votes out of over 5.5 million cast. "It is inexcusable for Stein to...

    DUmmieland is up and running again after being offline for a couple of weeks. The official excuse is that the site was hacked but the real reason is that Skinner, newly deprived of his Clinton Cash, used the hack as a lame excuse to collect Star Member fees until the hack was supposedly fixed. Poor guy. Election night had to hit him like a ton of wet cement. Skinner and his fellow DUmmies went into Election Night absolutely certain of a Hillary victory only to have it all taken away from them. For Skinner it means no more behind...

    <p>In 2016 the path to victory for the GOP ran through the Midwest, and this may remain true for some time.</p> <p>Over Labor Day weekend in 2015, four months before the first primary votes were cast in Iowa, a somewhat obscure policy analyst and strategist wrote a confidential memo to a presidential campaign he was informally advising. He outlined what he believed was the path to victory for the GOP in the 2016 presidential election, based on election simulations he had run using a couple of publicly available models. He attacked the GOP’s official Election 2012 post-mortem as being politically motivated and divorced from actual voting data. A portion of the memo, edited lightly for style and length, is reproduced below.</p>

    Who Are Wise, Who Not? Insight often comes not from an Ivy League degree but by way of animal cunning, instinct, and hard work. By Victor Davis Hanson — November 22, 2016 “Cleverness is not wisdom.” — Euripides, the Bacchae At the height of the sophistic age in classical Athens, the playwright Euripides asked an eternal question in his masterpiece, the Bacchae: “What is wisdom?” Was wisdom defined as clever wordplay, or as the urban sophistication of the robed philosophers in the agora and rhetoricians in the assembly? Or instead was true wisdom a deeper and more modest appreciation of...

  • Who’s Going to Pay for Trump’s Huge Infrastructure Plans?

    The Fiscal Times ^ | November 14, 2016 | Mark Joffe
    A rare point of agreement between President-Elect Trump and Congressional Democrats is that America has an infrastructure deficit: The nation’s transportation, power, water and sewerage facilities are too often outdated and unable to reliably serve a growing population. But while the diagnosis crosses party lines, solutions are more controversial. Democrats may not be too worried about the recent increase in federal deficits, but Republicans who have made an issue of the national debt will be reluctant to produce more red ink. Likewise, tax increases to pay for new federal construction spending are off the table under Trump and a Republican-controlled...

    Pollsters from coast to coast were dead wrong about how the presidential election was going to shake out – with the exception of very few. Most polls showed Hillary Clinton up bigly over Donald Trump, which was pretty much the left’s way of discouraging Republicans from showing up. Almost a suppression of the vote, if you will. Didn’t work out so well. Who knew the polls were a complete joke from the start? That would be 2008 VP candidate and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

    President-elect Donald Trump said throughout his campaign for the White House that he wants major investments in U.S. infrastructure, calling for $1 trillion on infrastructure projects during his presidency.He reiterated the point in his victory speech last Wednesday. “We’re going to fix our inner cities and rebuild our highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals,” Mr. Trump said. “We’re going to rebuild our infrastructure, which will become, by the way, second to none.”However, major infrastructure bills are challenging pieces of legislation to pass, especially since Congress changed little in the election, says Todd Spencer, executive vice president of the Owner-Operator Independent...

    Rumors are that Donald Trump might pick John Bolton for Secretary of State. Heaven forbid.One of the things I occasionally liked about the President-elect was his opposition to the Iraq war and regime change. He not only grasped the mistake of that war early, but also seemed to fully understand how it disrupted the balance of power in the Middle East and even emboldened Iran.We liberated Iraq, but today their best friend is Iran, their second greatest ally is Russia, and their third strongest alliance is with Syria. Trump really seems to get the lesson. Hillary Clinton never did.Most importantly...
