President Donald J. Trump today proclaimed Monday Columbus Day and issued a proclamation without the tortured moral balancing act that marked his predecessor’s previous proclamations.
“Five hundred and twenty-five years ago, Christopher Columbus completed an ambitious and daring voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas,” said the president.
“The voyage was a remarkable and then-unparalleled feat that helped launch the age of exploration and discovery. The permanent arrival of Europeans to the Americas was a transformative event that undeniably and fundamentally changed the course of human history and set the stage for the development of our great Nation,” he said. “Therefore, on Columbus Day, we honor the skilled navigator and man of faith, whose courageous feat brought together continents and has inspired countless others to pursue their dreams and convictions — even in the face of extreme doubt and tremendous adversity.”
In his 2o16 Columbus Day proclamation, President Barack Obama took swipes at Columbus and his legacy, while crediting himself fixing some of the damage he attributed to the Genoese-born explorer and Admiral of the Seas for the Spanish crown.
Here is an excerpt from that 2016 Obama proclamation:
As we mark this rich history, we must also acknowledge the pain and suffering reflected in the stories of Native Americans who had long resided on this land prior to the arrival of European newcomers. The past we share is marked by too many broken promises, as well as violence, deprivation, and disease. It is a history that we must recognize as we seek to build a brighter future — side by side and with cooperation and mutual respect. We have made great progress together in recent years, and we will keep striving to maintain strong nation-to-nation relationships, strengthen tribal sovereignty, and help all our communities thrive.
Here is the complete proclamation by Donald J. Trump:
COLUMBUS DAY, 2017
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Five hundred and twenty-five years ago, Christopher Columbus completed an ambitious and daring voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas. The voyage was a remarkable and then-unparalleled feat that helped launch the age of exploration and discovery. The permanent arrival of Europeans to the Americas was a transformative event that undeniably and fundamentally changed the course of human history and set the stage for the development of our great Nation. Therefore, on Columbus Day, we honor the skilled navigator and man of faith, whose courageous feat brought together continents and has inspired countless others to pursue their dreams and convictions — even in the face of extreme doubt and tremendous adversity.
More than five centuries after his initial voyage, we remember the “Admiral of the Ocean Sea” for building the critical first link in the strong and enduring bond between the United States and Europe. While Isabella I and Ferdinand II of Spain sponsored his historic voyage, Columbus was a native of the City of Genoa, in present-day Italy, and represents the rich history of important Italian American contributions to our great Nation. There can be no doubt that American culture, business, and civic life would all be much less vibrant in the absence of the Italian American community. We also take this opportunity to reaffirm our close ties to Columbus’s country of birth, Italy. Italy is a strong ally and a valued partner in promoting peace and promoting prosperity around the world.
In commemoration of Christopher Columbus’s historic voyage, the Congress, by joint resolution of April 30, 1934, and modified in 1968 (36 U.S.C. 107), as amended, has requested the President proclaim the second Monday of October of each year as “Columbus Day.”
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim October 9, 2017, as Columbus Day. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I also direct that the flag of the United States be displayed on all public buildings on the appointed day in honor of our diverse history and all who have contributed to shaping this Nation.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this sixth day of October, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.
DONALD J. TRUMP
WAHHHH: Georgia Election Official Whines Over Growing Anger Against Officials Signing Off on Fraud
What a crybaby.
Gabriel Sterling, a top official in the Georgia secretary of state’s office, released a whiny rant on Tuesday in which he lamented over the anger that is building against state Republican officials who are doggedly preventing electoral irregularities from being investigated.
“It’s all gone too far. All of it,” the Georgia election worker said. “Joe DiGenova today asked for Chris Krebs, a patriot who ran CISA, to be shot.”
“A 20-something tech in Gwinnett County today has death threats and a noose saying they should be hung for treason because she was transferring a report on batches,” he added.
This bum is calling for President Donald Trump to stop his quest to root out election fraud because of the hurt feelings of these snowflake bureaucrats.
“It has to stop! Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language. Senators, you have not condemned this language or these actions. This has to stop! We need you to step up, and, if you’re going to take a position of leadership, show some,” the angry little man said.
He whined about the pressure that Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is receiving after becoming a nationally-reviled figure for stopping inquiry into Georgia’s corrupt electoral process.
“This is elections. This is the backbone of our democracy, and all of you who have not said a damn word are complicit in this. I can’t begin to explain the level of anger I have right now over this,” the triggered coward said. “And every American, every Georgian, Republican or Democrat alike, should have that same level of anger.”
He ended by blaming President Trump for his state’s own corrupt farce while calling for him to stop his quest to overturn the steal in order to protect culpable officials from imaginary violence.
“You have the rights to go through the courts. What you don’t have the ability to do, and you need to step up and say this, is stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence. Someone’s going to get hurt. Someone’s going to get shot, or someone’s going to get killed, and it’s not right,” he concluded.
His entire beta male rant can be seen here:

Sterling’s extreme cowardice is laughable, but his entitlement and arrogance is absolutely nauseating. The Founding Fathers would have certainly been much more radical toward vote stealers than President Trump and his supporters have been, by a wide margin.
Big League Politics has reported about the sad debacle in Georgia, which has disenfranchised Republican voters in the state unlike anything before:
A Fulton County, Georgia woman is describing handling a “pristine” batch of ballots that were marked “98%” of the time for Joe Biden in election recount duties, describing the suspicious phenomenon in a sworn affidavit.
Susan Voyles identifies herself as a participant in Georgia’s post-election recount in the affidavit, filed in litigation against Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger by Trump campaign attorney Lin Wood.
Voyles describes seeing ballots that differed considerably from the other ballots she was entrusted to count in the remix.
Voyles describes the batch of ballots as unusual in their texture and level of handling, and that she estimates 98% of them were cast for Joe Biden. Voyles even speculates that these ballots could’ve been processed through a ballot-marking device!
Voyles earlier described election recount supervisors as tasking them to process ballots in a “selective” fashion. Boxes of absentee ballots were signed by no one, without markings one might expect the Georgia Secretary of State to outfit absentee ballots with.
Another witness describes viewing election workers count 500 straight ballots for Joe Biden, all of which were marked with perfect black bubbles.
Trump and his supporters must not yield an inch, now that these crooked officials are feeling the heat. They are making major headway in pushing back against the steal, and the bad guys are getting frightened as a result!
