Megan Fox and a time-traveling Abraham Lincoln discovered a huge (or is it YUUUGE!) statue of what people think is Donald Trump in downtown Chicago, not far from Trump Tower.
I don’t want to give away the surprise of what the statue really is or why it’s there, so watch the video and have fun with that yourself.
I will say that it’s time for the Republican Party to really embrace being the party of Lincoln…and stop being the party of the Chamber of Commerce that wants unlimited immigration from the Third World so that wages can stay low and black people can be replaced in jobs by Spanish-speakers like the Chamber of Commerce wants.
Democrats have become the party of wealthy elites in ivory towers who look down on everyone else and, at the other end of the spectrum, the uneducated and illiterate poor who mooch whatever they can from public bodies who give them handouts (so long as they keep voting Democrat).
All of the working middle-class people have needed a champion for years…and that champion was never John McCain (a favorite of the elite), Mitt Romney (a member of the Chamber of Commerce Cocktail Party crowd), Barack Obama (the elite’s wet dream), or Hillary Clinton (who allowed herself to degenerate into a puppet of George Soros).
Donald Trump feels like a slap to the system and America’s shining hope to start over, reboot, and get back to being hardworking and exceptional. Trump really has the potential to become one of the greatest presidents we’ve ever seen, provided he is able to stay immune to ever caring what the Dishonest Media and the Cocktail Party crowd think of him.
I have felt so hopeful and optimistic since Trump’s election. The Common Man has spoken. Everyone who has been berated and pummeled and felt downtrodden by tyrannical political correctness has stood up and has loudly said ENOUGH. The elites are rolling around on the ground, gnashing their teeth, unable to function. Both the Bush and Clinton dynasties were vanquished and tossed into the dustbin of history with the degenerate Kennedys. A new day has dawned and someone outside the Cocktail Party status quo has become our president.
If you ever visit the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield, Illinois (a wonderful day trip if you are looking for some fun in the Chicagoland area), there is a room where they display assorted political cartoons attacking Lincoln while he was running for president and during his presidency. The media was dishonest back then too…and VICIOUS. Those cowards hiding behind their newspaper mastheads accused Lincoln of being everything horrible under the sun. Everyone who supported Lincoln was villainized too, in horrific terms.
It’s only later that greatness is retroactively bestowed on a president. But looking back anyone can see that Lincoln entered office at a period of history crying out for greatness…and I think that Trump has been elected in a similar crossroads.
I think he’s the right president for this moment in time. If he truly means what he says and works to #DrainTheSwamp and #BuildTheWall then I believe Trump could give America another chance to be great and to live up to our collective potential.
Trump will be in a nonstop battle against George Soros and the other globalists out there who want America to be transformed into a weak, poor, and backwards Third World clone. Trump’s our last chance to resist that and to assert ourselves as the sovereign superpower we should always be.
Lincoln pretty much dwarfs all other presidents in the decades surrounding him…and Trump has the potential to do the same. By the time he’s done with his work, I hope there is a shining glass Trump Tower in every city and record employment for all Americans as Trump gets everyone back to work and American prosperity returns tenfold.
February 6th is Ronald Reagan’s birthday (which, in 2011, will be the day Palin announces her presidential campaign).
February 11th is Sarah Palin’s birthday.
February 12th is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday.
February 22nd is George Washington’s birthday (but in the Old Style calendar, used when Washington was alive, it is February 11th).
We’d love to see an image of Sarah Palin in front of a birthday cake, with the ghosts of Ronald Reagan, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln behind her. We picture them as blue ghosts, like the ones they always had in Star Wars movies, when Obi Wan Kenobi or whomever appeared in ghost form at the end of Return of the Jedi.
Also in the room, we picture a moose, a bald eagle, a husky, and a mamma grizzly…the symbols we want the Palin 2012 campaign to use.
Maybe on the birthday cake, we’d have the icing read, “Happy 46th Birthday to the 45th President”.
Have the cake be a patriotic red, white, and blue.
Put the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence in beautiful frames on the wall.
Maybe have this birthday party set in the Oval Office.
Any other good ideas for the image?
If we do a good enough job on this one, maybe someone could get it to the Governor herself and let her know how much support she has.
PS — any other presidential birthdays in February?
Just something to think about on this the Eleventh Day, Year One, of The Golden Age of Obama. It’s actually very rare for a President to win a second term, no matter how well things go in that first term. Because of Reagan, Clinton, and George W. Bush, we assume a second term’s a given for presidents because the majority of those in our lifetimes have been two-termers (especially for those of us in our early 30s, who’ve mainly known two-termers). But, historically, that’s not the case.
Here are the men (and, unfortunately all men so far, despite all the talk of change still in the air) who’ve held the office two terms (or more, in one case):
(1) Franklin Delano Roosevelt (served 3 full terms, but elected to 4)
(2) Thomas Jefferson (2 terms)
(3) James Madison (2 terms)
(4) James Monroe (2 terms)
(5) Andrew Jackson (2 terms)
(6) Ulysses S. Grant (2 terms)
(7) Grover Cleveland (2 nonconsecutive terms)
(8) Woodrow Wilson (2 terms)
(9) Dwight Eisenhower (2 terms)
(10) Ronald Reagan (2 terms)
(11) Bill Clinton (2 terms)
(12) George W. Bush (2 terms)
(13) George Washington (2 terms)
(14) Richard Nixon (2 terms)
(15) William McKinley (2 terms)
(16) Abraham Lincoln (2 terms)
Those who wanted second terms but lost their elections:
(a) John Quincy Adams
(b) Martin van Buren
(c) Franklin Pierce
(d) Benjamin Harrison
(e) William Howard Taft
(f) Herbert Hoover
(g) Jimmy Carter
(h) George H.W. Bush
(i) John Adams
So, 16 wanted a Part Deux and got one. 9 wanted re-election but were denied. Almost 2/3 of our presidents were thus one-termers (or less).
And another interesting thing to note is that the last time THREE two-term presidents happened in a row was all the way back in the early 1800s, with Jefferson/Madison/Monroe (the 3rd, 4th, and 5th presidents). That hasn’t been repeated for 200 years now.
Not saying it won’t ever again, because it’s much too early to tell, but just noting it’s not an automatic, considering past as probability if not predictor.
Clinton/Bush/Obama as three two-termers in a row would be anomalous but certainly not impossible.
