A night to remember! Talk about an Alfred Hitchcock ending!  A future Hollywood film awaits about this year’s campaign.

Other than for Trump diehards, the ending was a real shocker, following months of deplorable one-sided scoundrel media pro-Hillary advocacy – journalism the way it’s supposed to be entirely discarded.

My assessment of the outcome is as follows. Hillary, the establishment candidate, was chosen to succeed Obama last year, likely before she announced her candidacy.

Trump, an anti-establishment sounding candidate, unexpectedly emerged last man standing in a field of 17 GOP aspirants.

Election rigging in America is longstanding, fraud commonplace at least since the 1824 “corrupt bargain” race – John Quincy Adams emerging triumphant over Andrew Jackson, a future US president.

Bush v. Gore was the most brazen electoral theft in US history. Five right-wing Supreme Court justices illegally stopped the Florida recount (later showing Gore won the state), overrode his popular vote triumph, choosing Bush to be president – showing US voters are disenfranchised without their knowledge.

Deep state power brokers decide who holds high-level elected and appointed positions. Elections are easily rigged with electronic ease, voter-role stripping and other dirty tricks.

In my judgment, Hillary lost because power brokers decided she was damaged goods, too contentious to lead. They cut a deal with Trump, assuring he’ll continue dirty business as usual, perhaps cutting him a little slack – letting him win by fair or foul means, in his case likely fair because Hillary is so overwhelmingly reviled.

At 2:29AM Eastern standard time on November 9, AP News headlined “The Latest: Donald Trump Elected President.” It’s crow-eating time for America’s deplorable media scoundrels. Some early morning headlines are as follows:

New York Times: “TRUMP TRIUMPHS”

Washington Post: “TRUMP TRIUMPHS”

Wall Street Journal: “Populist Surge Fuels Trump Upset”

Chicago Tribune: “Associated Press says Donald Trump elected president of the United States”

Los Angeles Times: “DONALD TRUMP WINS THE PRESIDENCY CLAIMING VICTORY AFTER UNORTHODOX CANDIDACY”

Reuters: “Trump takes the White House in upset, global markets tumble”

Financial Times: “Donald Trump wins historic US election victory”

London’s Guardian: “Trump stuns world”

Haaretz: “Donald Trump shocks the world, elected 45th president of the United States”

RT International: “Donald Trump secures enough votes to become 45th US president”

Sputnik News: “Trump secures enough votes to win 2016 presidential election”

Tass: “Trump elected president of the United States”

Press TV: “Trump crosses finish line in White House Race”

Addressing supporters, he stressed getting along with other countries, among other remarks, his tone and demeanor remarkably subdued compared to how he campaigned.

Key is if he follows through on his pledge for better geopolitical relations. The greatest threat of a Hillary presidency is possibly waging unthinkable nuclear war on Russia, perhaps China and Iran to follow.

Trump wants to partner with Russia in defeating ISIS. Hopefully he means it. “I promise you I won’t let you down,” he said.

His triumph won’t end vicious scoundrel media bashing. It’ll continue, especially after his January 20, 2017 inauguration and begins governing.

Hillary abstained from addressing supporters Tuesday night. She conceded by calling Trump and congratulating him.

RT International said Vladimir Putin “(i)n a message to Donald Trump, expressed confidence that the dialogue between Moscow and Washington” will improve.

Sputnik News quoted the Kremlin, saying “(i)n a telegram, Putin expressed hope toward joint work to lift Russian-US relations from the state of crisis, as well as to address the pressing issues of the international agenda and the search for effective responses to global security challenges.”

A previous article said one issue dwarfs all others in importance - possible humanity threatening nuclear war under Hillary v. Trump’s sense enough to shun the unthinkable.

He saved the world from the scourge of her threat to humanity.  In the aftermath of Thursday’s vote, it’s a relatively safer place than if Hillary emerged triumphant.

Trump defeated Hillary by a 48 – 47% margin nationally. Gary Johnson won 3% of the electorate, Jill Stein a disappointing 1%.

Electoral-vote.com gives Trump 305 Electoral College votes to Hillary’s 233. Republicans retain House and Senate control.
