EMERGENCY OFFICIALS: We won’t let Dakota Access pipeline protesters freeze. Why not? No one is forcing them to stay.
IOWAHAWK takes on Buzzfeed's assault on Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV's Fixer Upper TV series. Twitter fans chip in (pun intended).
WAR ON HONESTY: FBI needs to investigate violent Democratic tantrums.
There are 3,141 counties in the United States.

Trump won 3,084 of them. Clinton won 57.

There are 62 counties in New York State. Trump won 46 of them. Clinton won 16.

Clinton won the popular vote by approximately 1.5 million votes.

In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond.)

Therefore these 5 counties alone more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.

These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles. The United States is comprised of 3, 797,000 square miles.

When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.

Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of our country.
Sorry, but we get a vote, too.

From my email. I can't vouch for the accuracy of the numbers, but they are consistent with county-by-county electoral maps I've seen online.
HEH. Fortunately, children grow up. Unfortunately, socialists don't.
PROGRESSIVES PANIC: What if Trump is actually good?
POWERLINE'S WEEK IN PICTURES (victory lap edition) is up. My favorite this week:

Go see the rest.
"AMERICANS HAVE, at least for now, changed the trajectory that was dooming us to the Life of Julia. That alone is a deliverance."
MEMO TO OBAMA: as an ex-President, be a Bush, not a Carter.

Good advice, not that I expect he'll take it.
MORE TRUMP DERANGEMENT: Shouting match erupts between Clinton and Trump aides.

Liberals do live in another world....
SURPRISED? The bigotry of liberal America.
