What would America look like today had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election?
On November 9, 2016, Republican candidate Donald Trump of New York won the 2016 election, against all odds, defeating Democrat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of New York.
Running up to that fateful election night in 2016, all indications pointed to Hillary Clinton being elected the next president of the United States of America.
According to the math, the United States and the American people appeared doomed.
Clinton had her eyes set squarely the White House like a ravenous wolf, relishing the opportunity to take control of America.
Hillary was so convinced that the presidency was her’s, she even bought a house next to their existing home in order to accommodate the extra staff she would need when she was president, which the Clintons purchased for $1.16m in August 2016.
But Wisconsin and then Michigan and finally Pennsylvania turned that real estate purchase into nothing more than an expensive place for Hillary to write her Trump-bashing book.
Three years later, President Trump has shattered conservative expectations and may go down in history as one of the greatest U.S. presidents, according to American Thinker.
It brings to mind another historical surprise.
Winston Churchill was elevated to leadership during England’s darkest days against all odds.
He was under withering attack by both the opposing party and his own in those early months, and his survival as leader was very much in doubt.
Trump was also elevated under extraordinary circumstances that many would regard as a historical anomaly.
As a New York real estate mogul and non-politician, he was declared unelectable by prominent and respected Republican pundits.
The media initially pushed his candidacy with glee, assuming he would be the easiest Republican for their paramour to knock off in the general election.
They were spectacularly wrong.
Both Churchill and Trump were leaders chosen, like Esther in the Bible, for “such a time as this.”
Interestingly, both men were also considered beneath the dignity of the office by their manifest and often self-righteous critics.
Both also survived relentless and withering political and cultural assaults while dealing with formidable foreign foes, with China supplanting the authoritarian great power threats of yesteryear.
When Trump became president, leftists controlled nearly every lever of power in America: academia, media, the Judiciary, government bureaucracy, and entertainment among others.
Trump is wresting one of those key institutions out of their hands, which is almost a necessity before effectively opposing the others.
Where Trump has inflicted the greatest damage to the Left, and why he may yet save America, is in the reshaping of the Judiciary.
The importance of this cannot be overstated.
He has already placed 152 judges on the court with more than a hundred vacancies still waiting to be filled, undoing the tremendous damage that had been done in the eight years prior.
This incredible achievement does not get the attention it deserves.
Anyone who shrugs at what he has accomplished here does not understand the significance.
If Clinton had won, she would have appointed three young liberal Supreme Court judges by now, even as Ruth Bader Ginsburg had moved into retirement.
Liberals would have a 6-3 majority on that critical court, and it would have been nearly impossible to save constitutional governance.
Every court in American would be firmly in the Left’s hands.
Leftists would be relentlessly engaging in lawfare across America, and conservatives would be almost defenseless to resist.
Tyranny would be in full ascent, even as the nation was eclipsed by China on the world stage.
Despite all this, Clinton would be a near shoo-in for reelection.
We remain at an important historical inflection point. This is why the 2020 election is so critical.
As other world leaders continue to push for #globalism, steering the world down the path to a single global government, US President Donald Trump remains defiant.

President Trump, particularly if the Republicans also hold the Senate, can continue to build a hedge in the courts and undo some of the worst of the damage that was done to America.
But eight years is not enough to completely reverse the rot. The math remains terrible.
Support for socialism is rising among Democrats, illegal immigration in combination with birthright citizenship is flipping key states to the leftists, the debt is spiraling out of control even as Democrats promise obscene record spending, and liberals continue to control nearly every cultural institution in America.
The war was almost lost, and America remains in great peril.
America will likely elect a socialist in the not so distant future.
While perhaps not quite a mathematical certainty yet, that is an excellent bet when factoring in all the variables.
But holding the courts might just enable America to survive the damage and find its way back to constitutional governance.
Far too many NeverTrump Republicans do not understand the significance of the moment they are living in or understand that we are now in an existential struggle. America might not survive.
Give up the White House in 2020, and Republicans may never win it back.
The Republicans‘ sole hope to hold the White House in 2020 is President Trump. End of story.
Now is not the time for Romneyesque moral preening to earn a few head pats from a hostile media.
One of the most insightful recent observations was when Sarah Sanders observed that “I’m pretty sure they [Democrat presidential candidates] don’t even like America.”
They don’t. This is not some loyal opposition party that disagrees on the ideal size of government.
They hate America and want to destroy everything it was created to represent.
That was a mildly instructive moment in the insane CNN LGBT town hall in that you had a false Cherokee pandering to a false boy in the modern leftist version of Peter Pan.
Truth is always one of the first casualties of leftism.
The entire town hall was one giant promise to relentlessly persecute Christians while shredding religious freedom in America.
Once tyranny fully ascends, darkness will follow.
Far too many Americans are still blinded by their bias toward the now.
It is hard for people to imagine everything they know overturned. Up until this point, the anti-American socialists have moved slowly, and America has been like the frog in the boiling pot of water.
But this election has shown that they are transitioning to the next stage, when they will move openly toward authoritarianism.
We are at a pivotal moment in history. That’s not hyperbole. It’s a mathematical certainty.
It’s long past time for all NeverTrump Republicans, if they truly believe in conservative ideals and are not just camouflaged leftist collaborators, to return to the fold before it is too late.
