Donald Trump Just Shocked The Establishment

The so-called “experts” said it couldn’t be done.

The media had already written their story that Hillary Clinton had won the election and would usher in an era of liberal dominance.

But when the votes were counted, no one could believe the results.

Going into the voting, the media pronounced the election over.

However, shortly before 3 a.m., Donald Trump delivered a victory speech no one except his supporters thought he would ever get to make.

In the most stunning victory in American political history, Trump upended the Establishment and defeated Hillary Clinton with a decisive Electoral College victory.

Trump won Florida.

Trump won North Carolina.

Trump won Ohio.

Trump won Iowa.

But Trump also won swing-states that polls showed were out of reach — and that Republicans hadn’t won in a generation.

He scored upset victories in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Those wins in the upper Midwest delivered the margin of victory over Hillary Clinton.

Molly Ball, writing in The Atlantic, summed up Trump’s journey to victory:

“It was clear from the beginning that a lot of people believed him. It just wasn’t clear that there were so many of them.

 

“Ours was not a campaign, but rather an incredible and great movement,” Trump said. It was, he added, “a movement comprised of Americans from all races, religions, backgrounds, and beliefs, who want and expect our government to serve the people, and serve the people it will.”

 

He assembled a coterie of castoffs and has-beens (the fearmongering former New York mayor; the criminally implicated governor of New Jersey). Most in his own party’s professional class recoiled from his crudely divisive appeals, his appalling behavior.

 

Staffers refused to work for him; elected leaders held him at arm’s length. To his many opponents, he was a dilettante and a fraud, but also a monster and a demagogue, someone to be feared and mocked. His own party, tasked with helping him win, believed to the end that he would lose.

He showed them all.”

The national polls all showed Hillary Clinton winning by more than three points.

And the Real Clear Politics Electoral College map had Hillary Clinton winning, but by a narrow 272-266 margin.

However, the polls were wrong.

Way wrong.

Currently, CNN shows Trump with 289 Electoral College votes, and leading in the race for Michigan’s 16 Electoral College votes.

Trump will win more Electoral College votes than any Republican since George H.W. Bush in 1988.

His win also allowed Republicans to minimize their losses in the House and maintain their Senate majority.

Because of Trump’s strength with working class voters, Republicans scored upset wins in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania that forecasters assumed were lost.

And in the end, Trump scored an historic victory over the Establishment.

    Voting Mr. Trump for U.S. President did not remove the machine that has been in place since passage of the National Security Act of 1947, and the legalization of the C.I.A. Former F.B.I. director, J. Edgar Hoover traced GHWBush´s affiliation with the CIA back to 1953. Former OSS general, Russell S. Bowen, secretive action officer for GHWBush, reveals insider information about Bush in his book, “The Immaculate Deception: The Bush Crime Family Exposed,” 1990.
    George H. W. Bush and the Bush Crime Family continue to hood-wink Americans and the entire Western World. The genuinely treasonous GHWBush is clearly revealed by the “October Surprise of 1980.” For details, see pp. 68-75 of the semi-autobiography of former MOSSAD spy, Ari Ben-Menashe, “Profits of War Inside the Secret U.S. – Israeli Arms Network,” 1992.

      Continuing his treasonous stance against Americans, George H. W. Bush announced three weeks ago that he would vote for Hilary Clinton. He thus displayed the criminal umbilical chord between him and the Clinton Crime Duo that has been present since 1975, the Clinton marriage.

    Trump did not get elected on merit; he was elected on hate and fear! Hatred and fear of another Clinton reign! Go Trump, drain the swamp, kill the rot!

    Trump’s win was not a surprise to my extended family, many friends, and business associates, and myself. All their families and friends they knew were voting for Trump. All of our workers (white, black, and Hispanic) were voting for Trump. Final tally in our state was well over 60 percent for Trump, only exceed by Wyoming with 70 percent. There was a ground swell of discontent and determination that we wanted America to change from the diabolical administration of the pervert Fascist-in-Chief and his sycophants. We all wanted the American Dream for our grandchildren and great grandchildren.

    Trump overcame the establishment of both parties and the power that be in control of this nation. He overcame the corrupt media which decided it would get in bed with Hillary (yes, that profanity was intended!) and we all know we cannot trust the NYT, LATimes, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, etc. The only media outlet that at least attempted to bring the truth about Hillary was Fox and that was its commentators such as Hannity.

    Now let us join together and HELP MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

    Dewey defeats Truman in reverse. The MSM was all over themselves with Hillary going to win. Then Florida went Trump. And they were shocked. Then they lost NC and were shocked some more. And after midnight it just kept getting worse for them. Then they lost MI, WI, and PA and it was over with except the fat lady singing. And she refused to even meet with her supporters.
