Americans should indeed be concerned about “fake news” but not for the reason you think.
Defeated Democrats have increasingly whipped up fears of made-up media stories since the election. Bruised and battered, they hint that Donald Trump was not elected by a country fed up with stagnant wages and liberal baloney but rather because voters swallowed a lot of lies and belched up Republican votes.

Think Donald Trump is a one-off? Not quite—in many ways, he appears a successor to LBJ.
Following the unprecedented election of Donald J. Trump, many continue to look for precedents. The real estate magnate’s intervention with Carrier reminded columnist Peggy Noonan of JFK’s engagement with the steel industry. Others have likened Trump’s unlikely campaign to that of another celebrity who upset the established order – Ronald Reagan.

Donald Trump has declared war on the liberal media and there’s nothing they can do about it. To the delight of millions of Americans, he has scolded them for their bias and mocked their hypocrisy. Best of all, he is showing just how unimportant they will be to his presidency.

Finally, we know President Obama’s true legacy – a sore loser who wants to prolong his successful eight-year run of dividing Americans.
Notwithstanding that voters just handed the president a convincing rebuke, The New York Times reports that Obama wants to join the many leftist organizations organizing to fight Donald Trump. He told a group of activists with Organizing for Action that he would join their efforts quite soon—once he again becomes a private citizen. In a recent interview with The New Yorker, he said he felt “some responsibility to at least offer my counsel” to Democrats working to resist Trump.

As they navel-gaze, wondering why one of the biggest election machines in the country’s history lost to an under-funded, untutored, political outsider who was continually slammed by the media, Democrats should focus on—Mrs. Perleman.

Against all odds, in defiance of the pundits, with little help from his own party, with the media stacked against him, and Hillary Clinton casting him as incompetent and worse, Donald Trump has surprised the world by becoming the president-elect in one of the foulest elections in U.S. history.
Trump challenged convention from the start, vanquishing 16 GOP primary rivals with insults and bullying, paying little heed to party niceties or normal campaign dogma, counting on his celebrity and message to stir the country. And stir it he did, even as the Clinton camp threw everything at him and out-raised Trump by hundreds of millions of dollars.

Who is undermining the rule of law in our country? Democrats say it is FBI Director James Comey, but they’re wrong. It is President Obama who has repeatedly and inappropriately stepped on Department of Justice investigations and his Attorneys General who have allowed it to happen.

Donald Trump needs to smile more and gripe less. In the few days that remain, he needs to give Americans solid reasons to vote for him, and not just against Hillary Clinton.
Here are three issues that could sway undecided voters in the two short weeks that remain: Obamacare, education and job creation. For a normal candidate, this would be easy. But Trump, easily distracted by petty grievances, has repeatedly proved incapable of staying on message. And, he is remarkably inarticulate. So, here are three critical messages translated into Trump-speak.

Hillary Clinton needs the GOP to keep control of the House of Representatives. Why? Because that is the only way she can avoid being crushed by the colliding demands of the progressives who have taken over her party and the bigwigs who have funneled tens of millions of dollars to her campaign. If elected president, she can spend the next four years blaming obstructionist House Republicans for everything she fails to do. In other words, look for Hillary to deliver on the central promise of her campaign: four more years of Obama.

“Nobody 2016” stickers are all the rage at Colorado State University – summing up what a lot of Americans – and especially young Americans—think about this election. Like it or not, millennials are receiving a crash course in ugly Politics101. Not only did their hero Bernie Sanders turn traitor by endorsing Hillary Clinton; they now know, thanks to Wikileaks, that Clinton colluded with officials of the Democratic Party to cheat and beat their man.
Worse yet, they are finding out that Clinton has sold them a bill of goods. More emails reveal that she isn’t on board the Sanders revolution, and never will be. As she has said to donors, away from microphones, “I occupy the center-left to the center-right.” From the same source, they now know that the media was complicit in undermining Bernie’s run, and is politically aligned. Most uncomfortable of all, the COO of Facebook, that millennial home-away-from-home, is in the tank for Hillary, too. Is nothing sacred, they must wonder?
