Trump Wins–New President of the United States of America

donald-trump

It is official. Trump has now won Presidency of the United States of America.

CLINTON: 218

TRUMP: 276

RNC Wins the House and Senate

Republicans won the House of Representatives, and have also now won the Senate.

In the State of California, potheads will rejoice as the drug is now legal.

At 8pm, the streets of America were quiet, and stores nearly dead, with most people home watching results on TV or online. People outside are glued to the internet on their phones, and democrats are in shock and already in a sense of mourning. Tomorrow will be a new President that will be sworn in during January of 2017, and as we have just found out, that person is now Trump.

Trump Wins

For Trump supporters, many will celebrate. Others will secretly be happy–afraid to tell their friends or wives they secretly supported the man. For some women, they too are pleased. Yet for many Democrats, and especially women, it is a day of sadness. “How could women let us down?” One women asked me. “Did they not turn out to vote?” I can only empathize with women who–living in a historically patriarchal society, has never had a female President–has usually never had equal pay, who have historically been treated as less than a man, and who have historically been viewed as little more than an overly emotional, un-intelligent sex object there merely to please a man. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth.

Honor and Respect Women

Women are just as qualified as a man to do anything she puts her mind to. Women are just as intelligent, and sometimes more-so, and often times better qualified. And women are not here for the sexual pleasure of a man–unless they themselves want it. They are their own free spirit. Today’s woman is more powerful, more liberated, better educated, and more brave, than ever before–and that is a good thing. As we usher in a new President of the United States–another man, who has been quite guilty of some very terrible comments and actions towards women that any civilized society must condemn, let us all give special regard, care, respect, and love for all women of all ages. Without women–life would not exist. Let us cherish and and honor women, and all races, and all people. As a nation united, we are great, and always have been.

Most people on both sides of the political party in America generally have good intentions–they just differ on how to get the results they want. Most people are basically good. Lets celebrate at least–that this insane drama of an election is over, and that we can all get back to work. And let us also celebrate ourselves, our loved ones, and our commonalities. Let us celebrate women–and tell them we are sorry they had to live through and hear the terrible things said about women in this election, and speak out at any injustice we hear against women or any other minority–and do something about it. America is strong because its people are strong. Lets show the world that as hate filled as this crazy election was, we are a peaceful people, patient, kind, loving, and good. Lets show the world that America is each and every one of us–of all genders, races, nationalities, and sexual orientations–not a man in a White House–but you, and I. We are not perfect, but each day, we can be better than we were before. Lets start today, and be better, and spread the love. –Peace.

Keep America “Cool” Again

Love him or hate him, the truth can not be denied that President Obama was probably one of the greatest art and music lovers of all U.S. Presidents. We not only heard of many cool concerts he went to, but like the true power player that he is, he brought the party to ‘him.’   With this–our special ‘Presidential Issue’ as America ushers in the next President of the United States, we see In the video above  Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stone’s performance at none other than The White House.

What other government or President on Earth has the Rolling Stones play?  Only the United States. America–despite it’s challenges, is and always will be the ‘coolest’ land on Earth. From New Orleans to Miami, from Chicago to NYC,  and from Los Angeles and Hollywood and beyond, America IS great, not just because some of us are good, or some really awesome, but because we are still the economic, academic, intellectual, and cultural leader of the world. And, we have the coolest people on the planet–period. Farewell Obama.

The Opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture:

By Congressman John Lewis

I’ve been waiting to see this day for 15 years — and in some ways, my whole life.

I’ve loved history ever since I was a little boy. Growing up in the oppressive shadow of Jim Crow, my teachers would ask me to cut out photographs I found in magazines and newspapers of Rosa Parks, George Washington Carver, and other marchers for justice. I read about Booker T. Washington, reveled in the sounds of the Jubilee Singers, and prayed for a King to reach the mountaintop.

To me, history is the foundation of a powerful legacy, and it is important to tell the stories of the millions of black men and women, boys and girls, who labored and sacrificed, and continue the struggle, to build this great nation.

EliteConnections

When I learned of the decades-long effort to establish a national museum dedicated to preserving that too often untold story, I readily joined the effort. Every session of Congress for 15 years, I introduced a bill to create this national museum.

While the journey has been long, today the history of African Americans will finally take its place on the National Mall next to the monuments to Washington, Lincoln, and Jefferson — exactly where it belongs.

martinbruinsma

It is important that The National Museum of African American History and Culture tells the unvarnished truth of America’s history — a story that speaks to the soul of our nation, but one few Americans know.

It’s a reminder that 400 years of history can’t be buried; its lessons must be learned. By bringing the uncomfortable parts of our past out of the shadows, we can better understand what divides us and seek to heal those problems through our unity.

Jessica Banner Ad

If we look at the glass-topped casket that displayed the brutalized body of Emmett Till and hear his story, we may better understand the exasperation and anger Americans feel today over the deaths of Trayvon Martin or Tamir Rice.

If we see that an everyday leather wallet is what’s left of Harry T. Moore — a man who fought for the right to vote and died in a bombing meant to silence his activism on Christmas Day in 1951 – perhaps we will see why so many are fighting to protect any encroachment on that most sacred right today.

EdgarCayce

And as we look at the exhibit dedicated to an African American who now leads the free world from a White House built by black slaves, we can better understand the unshakeable optimism that has defined his belief that — with dedicated work and a little good trouble — we can help create a society that is more fair and more just, which benefits all Americans.

wynn-ad-2016

This museum casts a light on some of the most inspiring — and uniquely American — heroes who were denied equal rights but often laid down their lives to defend this nation in every generation. Often they profited least from the struggle they were willing to die for because they believed that the promises of true democracy should belong to us all, equally and without question.

I hope you will join me and President Obama for the opening ceremony of the National Museum of African American History and Culture today.

When you hear about the heroes memorialized in its halls, you may discover the depths of the invincible American spirit. As we learn and confront this history together, we can begin to build one inclusive, and truly democratic family — the American family.

–Rep. John Lewis

Trump and Hillary–The Art of the Smear Campaign

donald-and-hillary

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton–in no other campaign in history has there been more name calling, drama, and smear. In Hollywood, it is all about ‘hype,’  Telling everyone how great one is an an actor, model, singer, filmmaker, humanitarian, or the like. In Washington–during one of the most competitive election campaigns ever, it is not only about the candidate’s bragging about how great they are, but also, about smearing their opponent.

EliteConnections

Who Has the Best Public Relations Campaign?

As we all know, “The Art of the Smear” has been taken to new levels by Donald and Hillary during this election.  We don’t need to repeat all of the drama–you know about that.  What we do want to determine here is this; How effective is each candidate’s campaign in terms of public relations and marketing? We monitored, we reviewed, we tested them, and we made our determination. The results are as follows:

BemerGroup

MOST EFFECTIVE USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA
Trump

Trump’s social media power dominates. From FB to Twitter to You Tube, he has it down.

MOST EFFECTIVE WEBSITE
Hillary

Hillary’s site is user friendly, and media friendly, with easy contact detail. Trump’s site has fewer contacts for e-mail communication.

martinbruinsma

MOST EFFECTIVE ONLINE PRESENCE
Trump

Trump dominates on the web. A true entertainer, he is simply entertaining to watch–love him or hate him, and has a bigger presence online than Hillary.

MOST EFFECTIVE USE OF MAINSTREAM MEDIA
Hillary

With recent polls indicating that over 80 percent of mainstream media favor Hillary has control of mainstream media.Jessica Banner Ad

MOST EFFECTIVE USE OF ALTERNATIVE MEDIA
Trump

From You Tube to bloggers and independent media leaders including Brietbart and Info Wars, Trump trounces in alternative media.

MOST EFFECTIVE ORGANIZING TEAM
Hillary

Team Hillary effectively recruits volunteers to help her team nationwide. Volunteers for her campaign have been asked to call voters from their cell phones, blocking their call before each dial. They were instructed ‘not’ to leave messages. While they should have had offices with land lines set up for callers, left messages, and not have blocked calls, at least they did better then her opponent in this regard.

Trump’s organizing team falls flat in this area. They repeatedly have failed to return communication for organizing supporters for callers,  media, and door to door campaigning, among more.

EdgarCayce

MOST EFFECTIVE RALLIES
Trump

Trump smears his opponent in this area, pulling in massive numbers of supporters across the nation.

MOST EFFECTIVE BRANDING / SLOGAN

Trump

“Make America Great Again” is –whether true or not, a great slogan. Everyone remembers it.  Hillary’s is, well–forgettable.

MOST EFFECTIVE DEBATING

DEBATE #1:
Hillary

Trump started way too soft, letting his opponent walk all over him way too many times. While he got in a few zingers, he mostly lost this one. Some say a biased moderator helped his defeat.

DEBATE #2:
Tie

While tough for Trump, with another Democrat moderator, but when Trump said that Hillary should be in prison–nothing could top that.  Whether you believe she should be in prison or not, it can’t be denied that it was a wild, unpredictable statement, and unforgettable in the history of American politics.  After the Billy Bush tape leak dominating media right before this debate however, that fact lessened what could have been Trump’s landslide win for this debate.  With a flurry of charges now also against him, the ugly scale of attacks were more balanced, and and as such, this could be easily called a tie.

DEBATE #3:                                                                                                                 Trump

Bringing Bill’s accusers to the ringside, Trump dominated this one, getting Hillary back– for her Vice Presidential running mate’s bad behavior of interrupting Pence– by being much more aggressive and even confronting the media,  who he has publicly scolded. He dominated in the first round, but then lost a little steam, as Hillary pulled ahead closer, keeping a steady pace. Still-Trump mostly beat her, helped by a Fox News moderator who was non biased.

VICE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE:
Team Trump

Even Democrats gave Pence credit for sounding intelligent, and coming off as genuine and professional here. Kaine however–showing himself to the world for the first time in a big way, came off poorly; interrupting terribly, and even yelling on instances.

MOST EFFECTIVE SMEAR CAMPAIGN:
Tie

From Trump’s sexist comments against women from years ago, to Hillary’s e-mail scandals among more, both have effectively smeared each other in various terrible ways. Had Wikileaks or the Billy Bush tape not leaked, the fight may have stayed standing, but instead, it dropped to the ground with both sides fighting for blood.

CONSPIRACY THEORIES

Some still suggest both candidates are secretly still friends (as noted in the photo above when they were still pals), and that the election is rigged not for Hillary against Trump, but for Hillary and Trump against Trump. While this seemed plausible in the conspiracy world at first, as things progressed, it seemed highly unlikely. If so, both sides deserve an Oscar nomination for the most convincing characters in the Drama category.

No matter what is real in the murky and crazy world of Washington, all we can know is that whatever happens, we will all still be just fine. And we here at The Hollywood Sentinel can be thankful that we work here in Hollywood–where things are nice and normal compared to Washington D.C.
