Losing a friend

I asked my friend, what will we do when there are no more rallies? I guess we have years to figure it out.

I have never felt this way at the changing of the guard. But we’ve never had a president like Trump, either. Bold, decisive, and stubborn. I am not one of the people who think he’s just short of Jesus but I liked him very much. He is the epitome of what New Yorkers are like – it’s an easy-going friendliness; everyone’s your buddy. A lot of his humor (and why so many people didn’t understand him) is New York type humor. I ‘got it’ because I was born and raised in Queens.

President Trump’s farewell address was a good one. He mentioned all that he had been able to accomplish in four years of the most contentious presidency ever. It’s impressive. He’s impressive. Great smile and hide like a rhinoceros. He is the unique combination of a rich man and ‘everyman’; it’s very attractive in a ‘down home with the family’ kind of way.

As he and Melania walked toward Air Force One for the last time, a reporter shouted, “What do you regret about your presidency?” and our boy just kept on walkin’. He doesn’t have to tolerate that crap anymore. Hey! Reporter! ‘read between the lines’. Those of you of a certain age will understand the ‘lines’ thing.

Covid actually gave us one blessing. The Republican National Convention. It was stellar. And moving. And classy. And very American. Just our neighbors from around the country telling us about their America and the impact Donald Trump had on their lives. There’ll never be another convention like that one – it was a one time treasure to behold.

Now he’s back to being my down south neighbor. He’s home again. But you know what they say, you can never go home again. I’m feeling that way today. Home is where the heart is and for every American, the White House is home. But it will never be my house again; too much has and will change. I feel like that picture of the little kid, walking alone down a dirt road, my belongings tied up in a bandana tied to a stick.

There’s no solace in conservative news – they have started the same crap the liberals did to President Trump and that’s just stupid. It’s wasted effort. It doesn’t make anything better, it doesn’t change anything. It’s just the flip side of the last four years and I don’t know if I can go through it again. I have always been the person who, being warned about someone, decided I’d wait and see for myself. Who knows? Maybe something good will happen. In any event, we’re stuck with whatever this new term becomes.

But in my heart … I feel like I’ve lost a good friend.

    Brilliant, Audre. πŸ™‚

    I know you want to wait and see what happens from this new and illegal administration but from the 15 executive orders Biden has already signed, including taking America back into the bosom of the WHO and the Paris Climate Accord, they have nothing good planned. I’m also informed that AOC’s list of people who influenced, supported and rallied for Trump, is still being drawn up. Want a job or a college place? Did you support Trump? You did! Well, on your bike.

    I know you want to be optimistic and I’d love to offer that but until your side gets back into power, you’re going to have to cope with 4 shaky and unsteady years – possibly more; the Democrats now know they can throw an election which means they’ll do it again.

    As an aside, my Noem article is up for anyone who wants a peruse.

    If nothing else, we can be thankful that Trump served as the Great Revealer. He revealed the corruption in Washington like nobody else and it is ostensibly everywhere: the Congress, the Supreme Court, the DOJ, the FBI, the CIA, Homeland Security and sprinkled liberally (no pun intended) throughout the bureaucratic apparatus in all of the agencies of this nation.

    As far as I am concerned, he is still president (just like you cannot make that which is legitimate illegitimate by trickery and thievery or by wishing that it was so. The American people cast their votes for Trump and they fixed the election. It is that simple. We now have a PINO or President in Name Only who has invaded the man’s house like a homeless squatter who is protected by unjust laws and judges . . . locking the rightful owner out of his own home.

    So maybe Palm Beach is the new DC if the Country is where the rightful President resides. He has mentioned starting a new party and I am “all in” as they say. He would like to call it the Patriot Party. I’m done with Democrats and Republicans. A new party would be rather refreshing and with Trump at the helm, the seeming impossible task of forming a third party in America, just might be possible; after all he has shown us that what the bureaucrats say is impossible is simple if you go about it in the right way and with great determination. Trump has determination in spades. I wouldn’t count him out yet. 75 million people agree with the man and that’s not to be dismissed as chicken liver.

      Trump took 11m more votes this time than he did the first time out. His personal ratings were good and he got more audience figures, in person and online, than Biden could ever dream of and yet we’re supposed to believe that Biden got 80m votes? Please.

      The worrying thing, in the States, is that it doesn’t matter if DJT starts a new party or not – especially since the Democrats now know they can rig, and win, an election. The investigation into this election, therefore, need to be ongoing.

      Gosh, you’re a good writer!

      I’m glad we still get to call him President Trump – I saw the bit about the Patriot Party; we’ll have to wait, I guess. I’d like him to start some news outlets and do what Ben Shapiro is doing – getting into entertainment as well. Create a whole new front of common sense news and programming.

      I resent that now we’ll never get the scoop (wink!) on how the steal was carried out – the names, the dates, the money exchanged. That won’t come out til long after I’m dead, I suspect, and by then, no one will care what happened.

        Trump has given us a model and a hope for the future; he never forgets and he fearlessly pursues the truth in face of fake news and lies. I think his 75 million voter are not going to forget so quickly and I think the truth will come out. After all, the left can’t keep secrets . . . even if national security is at stake.

          Particularly since there is nothing remotely memorable about the cabalist regime now installed by fraud. People don’t forget the good times, and the last four years have been the best of times, and will be followed by horrid ones. If we live through the next few years, e may see incredible changes, and they will be the President’s doing.

    75 million is a lot of votes plus all the one Dems stole and then lied about. My sympathy is with all of you who have found yourself on the losing side, but never forget you were cheated. It has been my own experince that just when you thought life could not get any worse something happens to change everything so do not despair my good American friends.

    Thanks, Neo. I wonder how the comparison to David Kurten went down too, what with both he and Noem being pro life, pro family and strong small c conservatives. My hope is that more people will look at Kurten and think of joining up. Despite the system we have in this country, which always favours the duopoly, if enough people give Kurten their backing, we stand a real shot of getting Heritage Party candidates into power. After all, if Farage had sold UKIP’s manifesto in full in 2015, many of those 120 second places may have turned purple. It can be done but only if our electorate has the belief.

      Yes – you had a very bold day when you told NEO and yours truly not only your real name (which I much prefer to the blog name) but your phone number as well. It’s in more secure hands with me than any government agency, that’s for sure!

          Bless your heart!!! The rest of it is 327-9969 and any time you want to chat, you just go ahead and call. I’m here all day – every day! (kinda neat how that works, isn’t it?).

          I don’t know who Tommy Cooper is; I like the one with the nickname ‘the unit’.
