The Qur'an says:

Ta'awanoo Alal Birri Wat-Taqwa,
Wa Laa Ta'awanoo Alal Ithmi Wal Udwaan!

Paraphrase:

Work together in good causes,
But do not help each other to do bad things.

Mitt Romney and Donald Trump said some pretty nasty things about each other during the recently concluded American presidential campaign 2016.

According to a newspaper report, here is a sample of what each of the two men thought and said about the other:

"In March, the former Massachusetts governor called Trump "a phony" and "a fraud" when discussing the then-candidate.

Trump has called Romney a loser and has said he "choked like a dog" during his 2012 presidential campaign against President Barack Obama."

The campaign ended on Tuesday, November 8. Donald Trump won the presidency.

And now here is what the media say is happening between the two men:

"Romney and Trump to discuss secretary of state position, NBC source says."

They may not call it that.

And Muslim little boys and sundry Islamic priestly pretenders may not recognize Islam when they see it, but this is Islam -- even if it is pressed into service using any other name.

That is one reason why I say: God Bless America!

And let us hope and pray that this Trump-Romney cooperation will be to promote good things and not to perpetrate bad things.

People again wrote to me asking me to join the fight. And Here is what I wrote back to them:

You guys just do not get it.

I do not want to "fight back" just for the sake of fighting back. And who am I fighting, and for what reason, anyway?

There was an election. Maybe you did not get that memo.

And Trump won fair and square. Maybe you did not get that memo either.

Man up and say it: "There was an election and Donald Trump won."

That verbalization of a simple truth will help you and help America move forward -- and possibly heal, no matter by how little.

So what if the Popular Vote went the other way by a certain margin? Not the first time.

But, we have a system in place and that system says loud and clear and in plain English: 

Donald J. Trump Won on November 8. 2016!

And he will be President 45 of the United States of America!

I want you guys to tell me who you really are and what you really stand for. Then I will decide how to react to your blank invitation to join the fight.

As for myself, I have decided how I can best be of help and service to America and the American People.

I plan to redouble my efforts to get everybody re-initiated and re-pointed in the direction of the old notions of Honesty and Integrity and Truth!

Democrats received a shellacking in the race for the White House. And that was mainly because they had a flawed candidate who ran a flawed campaign.

Hillary Clinton had no message, no voice, no personality, no charisma. She tried to be all things to all people -- depending on the day and the place. And in the end she was nothing.

How much heavy lifting can surrogates do when the candidate herself lacks all oomph?

The Dems were against a formidable candidate -- a fighter to the core. And they never took him seriously.

They seemed to have fallen for the nonsense the media were parading about Donald Trump being nothing but a clown, an entertainer and a fad.

Clinton called Trump voters a Basket of Deplorables. How do you put something like that behind you? 

And she failed to win over the supporters of Bernie Sanders.

And now the Democratic National Committee (DNC) keeps sending me e-mails asking me if I was ready to fight back!

Fight whom? And for what? Who are we fighting and what is the fight about?

I don't think they have a clue.

Don't get me wrong. I am a born fighter. And I never run from a fight. But the future is not about fighting. It is about coming to terms with reality.

What is really needed is for everyone -- Democrats as well as Republicans -- to define:

a) Their true identity -- who they really are.

b) Their true mission in life and in politics -- what they really stand for.

c) Their true goals -- what they really want to achieve for themselves and for this great country.

Once this is done, they need to then devise an effective strategy to achieve those goals.

Right now, at least the Democrats are totally rudderless and lost.

And Trump is waist deep in the swamp that he set out to drain.

Maybe one way out for the Dems is to put Sanders in charge of party policy and direction. Maybe he can still help them reemerge from the wilderness and regain relevance.

The fact is the electorate has changed. People are no longer as dumb and docile as they used to be.

Nor are the traditional media as mighty and dominant.

God Almighty's Grace seems to have manifested itself in part in the form of Social Media and set the American People free. The People now appear more capable of thinking for themselves than at any point in the past.

So, the only way forward for the Dems is to level with the American People and do some serious soul searching.

Their mission should be to serve the People. Not fight Trump. At least not right now.

On Tuesday, November 8, 2016, Donald Trump won the presidency. And he did so after a bitter, bloody and turbulent electoral Armageddon. 

The favorite daughter in this election cycle, Hillary Clinton, lost in all kinds of most unexpected ways, devastating her supporters and sending shock-waves among her High-Power and Big-Money backers -- from Wall Street to Wherever...

Ten Trillion dollars were thrown away in our mad killing sprees of mostly innocent Muslim men, women and children across the world over the past 25 years. Even though the official dollar figure often acknowledged is $6 Trillion.
Pretexts and arguments, justifications and rationalizations used for these so-called wars were different, as they have to be, just like Paul Wolfowitz noted on television. But the object and outcome was the same: mostly innocent Muslim blood flowing like flood water in Muslim lands everywhere.
And Muslim masses, in their hundreds of millions, driven from their homes and ancestral lands and turned overnight into homeless, landless, hopeless refugees.
Wolfowitz said it best on TV. He said they used the Nuclear Argument to start a so-called war because they thought that would sell the best with the American People...
