Those who are members of the “Echo Chamber,” who only talk among themselves and today’s media which dutifully hangs on their every word, find themselves believing their own nonsense were the most shocked.

Those on the ground who had a greater take on the pulse of the U.S. voter understood full-well that they were fed up with the progressive agenda and Mr. Trump wisely tapped in to their populist desires.

This will not be President Trump’s M.O. until the obstreperous duds on the left see fit to pass the president’s cabinet nominations and that of his pick for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, Trump will do what he has to do.
Meanwhile, the party of the democrats will likely be put to sleep for the next 16 years.
We called the election here numerous times, and go on record again saying if the RINO’s within the Republican Party don’t muck things up for Trumps vision of restoring America to greatness the democrat party is dead meat.
“So unlikely did the election of Donald Trump seem to Washington and its denizens that the reality of it still has not sunk in.
All of the city’s worst traits—the self-regard, the group think, the obsessions with trivia, the worship of credentials, the virtue signaling, the imperiousness, the ignorance of perspectives and people from outside major metropolitan centers and college towns—not only persist.
They have been magnified with Trump’s arrival.
“Congress is doing its best to live up to the public’s dismal opinion of it.
Democrats on Capitol Hill are behaving erratically, hysterically, boycotting committee meetings to approve Cabinet officials, threatening to filibuster a qualified and highly regarded Supreme Court pick because Mitch McConnell won a wager with former “Resident Obama.”

The Republicans on Capitol Hill seem as disoriented by Trump’s victory as the Democrats.
Congress has been in session for a month.
What, besides repealing a mining regulation, has it done?
Why is Mitch McConnell not playing hardball with Chuck Schumer on executive branch appointments and Judge Gorsuch?
(Because McConnell is a has been RINO so long in the tooth he needs to be put out to pasture or sent to the glue factory.)
At 74 year of age, McConnell was first elected to the Senate in 1984, McConnell is Kentucky’s longest-serving senator.
He made history that year as the only Republican challenger in the country to defeat a Democrat incumbent and as the first Republican to win a
statewide Kentucky race since 1968.
Doing the math, McConnell has been hanging around Washington for 49 years.
On November 4, 2014, he was elected to a record sixth term by receiving broad support across Kentucky, winning 110 of the Commonwealth’s 120 counties
Senator McConnell previously served, again by the unanimous vote of his colleagues, as the Republican Leader in the110th, 111th, 112th and 113th Congresses and as the Majority Whip in the 108th and 109th Congresses. McConnell also served in leadership as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee during the 1998 and 2000 election
I know, I know: “Things take time.” But time is the enemy.
This is something Democrats and other members of the self-described “resistance” understand but Republicans do not.
Or perhaps the Republicans understand all too well, and want inertia and entropy to bring us a less populist and more conventionally Republican Trump.”
“Not only are there two Americas.
There are two governments: one elected and one not, one that alternates between Republicans and Democrats and one that remains, decade after decade, stubbornly liberal, and resistant to change.
It is this second government and its allies in the media and the Democratic Party that are after President Trump, that want him driven from office before his term is complete.
You think I exaggerate.
Consider this: When a former Defense official who teaches at Georgetown Law School takes to Foreign Policy to propose “Three Ways to Get Rid of President Trump Before 2020,” (Source) and when one of those ways is “a military coup, or at least a refusal by military leaders to obey certain orders,” we are in unknown and extremely unsettling territory.”
There is so much negative energy coursing through the city that circuits are overloaded.
That the president still draws support from the coalition that brought him to office, that a fair number of people see his policies as common-sense, seems not to affect any of Trump’s critics in the least.
They will press on until Trump behaves like they want him to behave.
They are once again displaying their delusions, forgetting that Trump won and they lost.
