A Tale Of Two Countries — Two Elections — Two Presidential Power Transitions — Which one do you want to live in?

Gambia and the United States of America, both had seismic elections recently.

And both elections pitted an establishment Candidate assured of Electoral Victory against a businessman that was the perennial underdog, underestimated, and underfunded, and certainly a person the Media had written off as a Loser.

Sounds similar?

Of course it is because both elections were hugely dividing for the country’s electorate…

And yet only one of these countries had a peaceful transition from the departing President to the New President.

And only one of the two countries managed to do this exchange of power without bloodshed.

And yet the Real Losers, the establishment has unleashed a tremendous campaign of Hate & Violence to stop this peaceful change of power from taking place…

So they paid protesters to revolt… They found them amongst the unemployed surfing the web and looking for gigs through Craigslist…

Whereas at the same time inside the National Cathedral, things were far more civilized…

Do you wanna guess which one did?

Even though the liberals and their reporting might present a picture of chaos and civil war in Washington DC, nothing is further from the Truth.

President Trump, first lady Melania Trump, Vice President Pence and Karen Pence continued a long inaugural tradition Saturday morning, attending a prayer service that was notable for the diversity of faith participants.

While most who led prayers and offered readings at the service at the Washington National Cathedral were overwhelmingly evangelical, the long list of participants also included leaders from the Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Jewish, Mormon, Muslim, Sikh, Buddhist, Bahá’í faiths. The service opened with a Navajo blessing.

The inaugural prayer service is a tradition that began with President George Washington and was revived in 1933 by President Franklin Roosevelt, continuing ever since.

While Trump’s team had reportedly asked there be no sermon — a break with past services — the Very Reverend Randolph Marshall Hollerith, who’s the dean of the Cathedral, was pointed in his prayer by asking God to “break down the walls that separate us.”

On Friday in a pre-inaugural service at St. John’s Church, First Baptist Dallas Pastor Robert Jeffress — a vocal supporter of Trump throughout his campaign — preached a sermon that compared Trump to Nehemiah, who had worked to rebuild the crumbling walls around Jerusalem, much like the border wall Trump has proposed.

“You see, God is not against building walls!” Jeffress said.

Many of the prayers at Saturday’s service asked God to provide wisdom and protection for President Trump and the country. A rabbi recited a reading in Hebrew while an imam delivered a prayer in Arabic. Sajid Tarar, a Trump supporter who also prayed at the Republican National Convention, read from the Quran.

Trump has stirred up opposition among both faith groups. During the campaign, he proposed a ban on Muslims coming into the country and has talked about a need for surveillance at mosques in order to stop terrorism. And Trump’s support among the so-called “alt-right” movement of white nationalists has alarmed many in the Jewish community.

Several of the songs were patriotic ones, including “My Country ‘Tis Of Thee” and “America the Beautiful,” and a choir from Liberty University, whose president Jerry Falwell Jr. was also a vocal Trump supporter, sang “We’ve Come This Far By Faith.”

President Trump’s children and their families were also in attendance, including Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, a new White House adviser to Trump. The couple and their children are Orthodox Jews.

Notable participants included Alveda King, an anti-abortion activist who is the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Cissie Graham Lynch, the granddaughter of evangelist Billy Graham whose father Franklin Graham prayed during the inauguration ceremony.

Gambians celebrate the victory of opposition coalition candidate Adama Barrow against longtime President Yahya Jammeh on Friday in the streets of Serrekunda, Gambia.

In a shocking upset, election officials say an opposition candidate has defeated Gambia’s longtime leader in the country’s presidential vote. This sets the stage for what could be the small West African country’s first-ever peaceful transfer of power since it gained independence from the U.K. in 1965. Gambia Held it’s Presidential Election Amid Internet Blackout…

And now Civil War is brewing because the old President is refusing to go away and relinquish power, because the sweet bonus of African Corruption is the enrichment of the Politicians — very much like the practices of Hillary Clinton in America.

Meanwhile back in the jungle… in Africa’s Gambia, the head of the electoral commission announced that Adama Barrow defeated Yahya Jammeh, who has led the country since he launched a coup 22 years ago, as NPR’s Ofeibea Quist-Arcton reports. She adds that election Commissioner Alieu Momarr Njai said in his announcement that Jammeh has accepted defeat, but so far there has been no official word from the president.

Barrow, a businessman, was able to energize eight opposition parties that then united behind him. The electoral chief told journalists this: “It was unique that someone who has ruled a country for so long has accepted defeat and that President Jammeh would announce the official vote count and election winner. This puts tremendous pressure on the president who, before the vote, said only divine intervention would remove him from power and predicted the biggest landslide in Gambia’s history. Adama Barrow won 263,515 votes, or 45 percent of the total, while Jammeh finished in second with 36 percent. A third candidate, Mama Kandeh, received 17 percent.”

The vote took place under an Internet and international phone call blackout, as The Two-Way reported. The country’s state-run Daily Observer newspaper has not been updated since the result was announced. It continues to predict an “inevitable” victory for Jammeh.

“Jammeh came to power in a coup in 1994 and then swept elections in 1996, 2001, 2006 and 2011 after a 2002 constitutional amendment removed presidential term limits,” the AP reports. “Critics say those earlier elections were not free and fair.”

Jammeh has a lamentable human rights record, as we reported, and is seen as a leader who brooks no dissent.
Social media users were posting scenes of jubilation, as supporters of the opposition candidate took to the streets to celebrate.

Meanwhile, it remains to be seen how Jammeh himself will react to the news. It could have major implications if he steps down peacefully, as the AP reports.

“This is going to have resonance way beyond the tiny borders of Gambia,” human rights activist Jeffrey Smith told the wire service. He called this “a momentous occasion for the region writ large.”

Meanwhile strong armies from neighboring countries are amassing at the borders in order to move in and effect the change of Power because in a typical African fashion, without bloodshed there is no transfer of power…

And this travesty of Democracy, is what some pussy-hat wearing women want to bring down on the United States, because as they say, they do not like the New President… and in some deluded fashion they claim that Donald Trump does not represent them.

Somebody has to teach them How Democracy Works…

Maybe we should send them to deep dark Africa in Gambia to get re-educated about eh ways of Democracy.

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

There are already the evacuations of all Foreigners from Gambia in anticipation of the massive bloodshed to mark this President defeat…

Is this what Obama intended when he announced that Americans should resist Trump?

A return to African standards of Democracy?
