From the November 19, 2016 Saturday Night Live, a good overview of Sanctuary Cities as if the election never occurred

An Independent Conservative Voice for Clark County
Yes, shocking to many but Donald Trump has won, maybe even eking out a small popular vote win as late arriving ballots are counted to go with the Electoral College win. His supporters are overjoyed and jubilant, much like we saw from Obama’s supporters in 2008 and 2012.
Hillary’s supporters are saddened and depressed, not unlike Republicans were 2008 and 2012.
The protests / riots seen around the country beginning the day after are far from the formation of the TEA Party rally’s seen in 2009. TEA Party rallies weren’t based on mayhem and destruction to stop Obama from taking office, though. That was over taxes and especially Obamacare.
It’s no secret that I did not support Donald Trump nor did I support Hillary Clinton. But what is seen in the following video must not be tolerated.
This reportedly happened in Chicago and it is reported that Police are investigating, but no arrests to date are reported. The elderly man is said to have been hospitalized and his car stolen by the thugs, that has not been recovered.
As we all know by now, acerbic Donald Trump came out ahead over Hillary Clinton to next occupy the office of the president. The win comes as no real surprise as one of the two was going to win and both were poor candidates, not what we need to heal our divided country.
Seeing now how the GOP claims to have a mandate and big win is most laughable as once again, we see the presidency won by electoral vote while coming in second in the popular vote.
I have no problem with that as that is the system our founders established. I do disagree with the ‘winner take all’ of 48 of our 50 states and believe each congressional district should have electors voting as did their district. But that is in the hands of the legislatures of each state.
We know today that the Democrats have moved far to the left and if there are any conservatives left, they hide in the shadows.
It was the acts of Jimmy Carter that convinced me to become a Republican in 1977, seeing the Republicans were embracing conservative values, especially seen once Ronald Reagan defeated Carter in 1980.
Of course, on the opposite end of that is politics destroying friendships as well as being the cause of bitter arguments as was seen with the duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton in 1804 that lead to Hamilton’s death.
In our modern era, though, we do not engage in dueling, but with the onset of politics of personal destruction, opponents seek to destroy each other’s character while trying to hide their own flaws.
In the meantime, lines are drawn between supporters where we all too often witness bitter arguments, denigration of each other, verbal attacks with condescending denigrating attitudes.
To say neither is qualified to occupy the Oval Office is a gross understatement, regardless of what either of their starry eyed devotees my claim.
Both are well known New York Liberals that care only about themselves and both would devastate our country if not plunge us into a bloody war.
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires” 2 Timothy 4:3
I am at a total loss as to how so many allowed themselves to be deluded by such a charlatan running what I can only call a “slash and trash” campaign, very reminiscent of the actions years past with Ron Paul supporters.
Interesting enough, now those same people that joined Trump in trashing any and every body not supportive of the poseur are now demanding we all get behind and support his bid, engaging in fear mongering of a Hillary Clinton win.
As we all know, there is little that the Democrat Party and Republican Party can find to agree on today. The division is so broad that I see no reconciliation between the warring ideologies in my lifetime.
Even where the parties were briefly united on opposing radical Jihadists and their acts of terror, I see a shift towards more acceptance and tolerance of the barbarism of radical Jihadists now beginning on the left.
My view is not based on misguided hyperbole as I will be accused of, but in their acts of defense of Islam after an attack as we saw in San Bernardino and even the open acceptance of largely unvetted “refugees” from Syria in spite of witnessing massive problems in Europe where they were first accepted.

Excerpts from the 70th Commemoration in Vancouver, Wa. Sadly, several of these men are no longer with us.
May we never forget
As the investigation continues into the heinous shooting this past week in San Bernardino, California, an all too familiar narrative is once again being heard. That being, “Muslims feel a backlash” since the two people that committed the terror attack, Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik was both Muslim.
You Muslims in America are not the victims here.
A look over the years how various Presidents have reacted to danger facing Western Civilization.
Yesterday, as I was posting the previous post, word began breaking over news networks of what we today know was another horrific act of terror from ISIS in Paris as they systematically slaughtered innocent people again.
I refrained from posting on it yesterday, although I did make several comments on my facebook page, as anything I put down here would amount to little more than an anger filled rant.
Even if justifiable, my anger over so many innocents being slaughtered by ISIS on the very same day Obama came out claiming how they “were contained” would not have come across in how I choose to pattern my writing.
I was born and raised a Southerner, coming of age during the Civil Rights era of the 1960’s when cities were still segregated, Whites on one side of the railroad tracks, and Blacks on the other side in much less maintained neighborhoods.
Much of my formative years was less than three blocks from those tracks with a highly prejudiced Dad frequently ranting about how the Black people needed to “just stay in their place,” while I looked around our own roach-infested shack that was no better than we could see when looking across the tracks.
I can’t say that he hated Black people as did others, he was more stuck in what he was raised believing on somehow, Whites were supposedly better and “it’s just the way things are.”
Couldn’t prove it to me in how he supported us.
A contrast of the Democrats I grew up under compared to today’s Democrats.
What happened, Democrats? Y’all used to proudly defend liberty and freedom?
Now, it’s just not worth it?
Little is known about the shooter’s motive from yesterday’s shooting at Umpqua Community College, but some information is filtering out and raises questions.
Naturally, there are those that immediately blame the gun and wish to impose more restrictions of law-abiding gun owners, ignoring that criminals like this shooter ignore all laws and restrictions.
But according to a CNN article today, the shooter has a history of mental health issues and had sought mental health treatment.
So, Democrats & Elizabeth Warren think they have discovered something unique in how Planned Parenthood has been exposed cannibalizing fetal body parts?
Sorry Dems, seen it before
