"... I mean, things really got out of hand fast!" -Ron Burgundy

So the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election has concluded, and Trump won it via Electoral College. Having voted for Gary Johnson, I couldn't stand the notion of either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump as POTUS. But, it is what it is. The most positive thing to emerge from this was the evisceration of the mainstream media. After years of misinformation, political diatribe, pandering to elements of the extreme left and right, they've finally been dealt the blow they've deserved all along. Watching collectivist leftist clown-shoes such as Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Cenk Uygur and the Young Turks watch helpless as their golden calf was cast down from her pedestal. This is not a bad thing for liberalism; this is what needed to happen to set things right. The cost is steep... but I think better political movements will emerge from this, be that a possible Progressive Party and strengthened Libertarian Party, or even a non-establishment Conservative Party.

Anyway, my work on the Star Wars: Father and Son of the Suns infinities setting continues with part four of the timeline, characters, and new commissioned artwork. But I feel that I'm missing elements that could expand the setting and create more material, especially since I'd like to draw upon the EU/Legends material to make that happen. If you have any suggestions, or anything you'd personally like to see, feel free to comment. I'm all for new ideas ;)

I voted for Donald, I really thought Hillary would win.  I'm glad that the Hillary polls were proven wrong.  That bitch should never set foot on the White House.

Don't get me wrong, Donald was not my choice for the Republican nominee during the presidential primary.  

2016 was the last year I voted as a Republican.  Registered as Independent.

To this day, I cannot comprehend why so many people believe that she would've been any better. At best, things would've remained about "the same," but that wasn't what people wanted, was it? A female Barack Obama lite?

you're prolly right about Hillary keeping barry's policy the same in the U.S..

foreign policy might be another matter.  I think she would have made things worse in mid-east.

Yeah, that was funny - look up Rachel Maddox....and her reaction.

That is the problem of the media - restrain it, you are blocking the freedom of the press; allow it to be controlled by self-appointed dickheads, and they use it as a propaganda machine for their agendas....

Yay :D

The moment they decided to try influencing the election by spreading misinformation, they sealed their own fate. While they're crying crocodile tears before the American people, I hope they have a moment of reflection that reveals the utter monsters they've become. No longer the "fourth estate," they are now part of the establishment.

Indeed! I have no sympathy!

New should be there to reflect and expose the truth - NOT influence thought and the outcome of fate!

Well said sir!

I voted for trump;
1. Another 8 years of the Clinton/Gore/Kerry/Schumer/Bush n bin laden clan would sell America out for a pittance, they are that corrupt. How many wars did Hillary and George soros want to create? Iran, Russia, Africa, india, Malaysia, china? 
2. third party candidates just can't win, the illuminati won't allow it.

Seeing as how all the polls had a bogus +25% added on to Hilary, (and the election results had added a 10% to hilLIARlys numbers, they also deducted 20% from Trump) It was an overwhelming landslide that they (the illuminati) knew they couldn't rig without provoking another American revolution. That is why trump is the president. A revolution would oust the illuminati from the US. All the bogus "Depts of"- go bye-bye, the Fed reserve, bye-bye, the Lying stream media, bye-bye. Instead of having all their collaborators thrown out by a revolution part duex, with trump as president...
what can he do against all of their hidden agents when he is a part of their system?

 the illuminati could not stop the will of the people who were tired of all the lies, corruption, labels, and hate speech being used to silence them.  This is the truth - for any conspiracy to prosper, there must be silence. Not just the villains, but the victims too. This time, the victims of the last 70 years of conspiracies said, "we will be silenced no longer."

there are so many crimes covered up by liars;

JFK was assassinated (by Bush Senior).
Prescott bush to part in a coup attempt to make America into a fascist state like Nazi Germany.
When Charles Lindbergh fought against the Fed for *Causing* the depression, it was Prescott bush who stole and murdered his baby. 
Martin Luther king was assassinated.
The moon landing was faked.
Operation paperclip, brought over nazi officers who then took part in founding the CIA and Nasa (not a space agency, too busy hiring violinists!)
Consider all the crimes of Germany and how the bush clan copied them almost word for word; Reichstag fire - vs 9/11. Patriot act, ndaa, presidential executive orders regarding "highly qualified civilians as unpaid labor" (aka the slavery oder signed into law - not by David duke, but by Barak Hussein Obama) and so much more that is documented, in writing! 63 drone sites in the us, over 800 fema camps, and the contracts to buy more hollow point ammo than needed to kill every American six times.
Mk Ultra, Radiation experiments, Bio Weapon experiments, Vaccines with secret lot numbers to track the poisoned victims, Gmo's and the silenced mass epidemics of - obesity, diabetes, heart disease, thyroid illnesses, auto-immune illnesses, autism + developmental nervous system disorders, meaning 1 in 6 get poisoned by vaccines. Why did all the oil companies found and fund for the environmental groups? Why aren't we using the McDowell Douglas 5-Mega watt waste heat Power plant? Let me state that again, the engine converts Heat directly into mechanical energy... with these we all could actively End global warming!

Look up the Weather control patents, and "weaponized weather" documents. Look up how Admiral crowe of the Clinton presidency forced toxic shots on all of the military from the late 90's bioport and how the bush-bin laden clans profited from it.

There is SO much, but you might never believe a word of it - Because truth has to hurt before it can heal.
Ask, "if 14 of the 9/11 hijackers came from suadi arabia, and 5 came from Egypt, why are we using that as an excuse to make war against Afghanistan and Iraq? is it the oil pipelines they want built? Is it the drugs that the C.I.A. is selling on America's streets, is it "Operation gun runner" selling guns to the Mexican drug cartels?
How does shit like that happen unless we are ALLOWING IT, BECAUSE a few of them are profiting from it.
It is in their e-mails. They want you dumb, and controlled.

Did you really want to vote for Hillary, or were you programed to?

Seeing The Young Turks reactions to everything was absolutely glorious, Cenk looked like he was gonna have a meltdown, and Ana, oh god, she looked like she was going to actually murder someone, as bad as Trump is at the very least he pisses off all the right people... I do really hope this is the metaphorical kick to the nuts that Liberalism needed, it was a hard lesson, but a lesson that honestly needed to happen, hopefully we can finally drop this hyper-PC faux-outrage culture and move forward, and for god sake, if the Democratic Party wants to ever recover from this devastating of a defeat they NEED to drop the Clintons, that name is even more toxic than Bush...

Bernie Sanders should be the one to establish the Progressive Party. People love him, and it would be the right move to establish a proper alternative. To me, at least, it makes the most sense. A 2020 run under the Democratic Party banner would be a waste of his ability to draw younger voters in, especially since the establishment is already considering Tim Kaine as their nominee three days after he and Hillary lost the election.

But I'll unapologetically say it: fuck The Young Turks. They are intellectual cancer, and the very worst to be some sort of banner for liberalism. Especially when they doubled down on their stance on the gang rapes on New Year's in Cologne. They give liberalism and progressivism a bad name.

Yeah, my only worry with Bernie is with how he conceded to Hillary after he was sabotaged, that endorsement, and the fact that he then went on to buy a house for over half a million dollars, a lot of people saw that as a betrayal, don't get me wrong I would sincerely like to see him return to politics, but after everything that happened it might be hard, plus he's getting older, by the next election he'll be 79... But yeah, I do agree, both the big parties need to be taken down a peg, the two party system only really benefits monied interests, it's stupid to the point where idiots were lashing out at people who voted third party, blaming them for Trumps victory, and I'm sat here thinking how can people be this stupid, when both candidates are bad, don't vote for either! The lesser of two evils doesn't HAVE to be a thing if people would actually support third-party... 

Oh yeah, without a doubt, they represent everything that's wrong within the Left, honestly I think Trump owes his victory more to the Hard Left than to conservatives, normal people are tired of being called racist, sexist, all the worst ists and isms for simply having a different opinion, that pushed many more Liberals to just say, fuck it. It's like the old C.S. Lewis quote about the "Omnipotent Moral Busybodies" being worse than the "Robber Barons", in this election America chose the Baron over the Busybody.

The longer the media covers aftermath of the election, the more unhinged they seem to become. I just watched a segment of Rachel Maddow blaming the third-party voters for what happened. The more the double down on this, the less likely I am trust them in the future. The MSM has been terrible for years, but now it is a dumpster fire.

Oh god, her face during the coverage was priceless though, there was this one moment during the live coverage, when Trump had a significant lead, and the camera is on her but she's looking down, her face looking utterly defeated, and when she looks up she notices the camera's on her and forces the most obvious fake smile, it's just a few seconds but it's one of the most beautiful moments in the coverage. I really wanna find a video or gif of it.

Rachel Maddow is a sell-out. And worse than that, she's a hypocrite.

We can only hope. Upheaval can be a positive thing in the long run. It's just that I don't see Trump as any sort of FDR or Ronald Reagan, at least at the present. Time will tell.
