Why Daenerys Will Win The Game Of Thrones

 

She is young, beautiful, a civil rights activist, hates the status quo, commands a massive army, keeps mythical fire-breathing beasts for pets, has great hair, and is not above eating a horse heart. Tell us that doesn’t sound like a ruler you’d like to bend the knee to? A lot of wannabe kings and queens have made sham claims on the Iron Throne of Westeros, most of whom are long gone or just waiting in line to get choked out, poisoned, sliced, diced, Mountained, or murdered in their homes by shadow baby assassins. But there is one lady in waiting that outshines all the rest and is a safe place to hedge your bets that, when all is said and done, and Winter has come and gone, she will be crowned victorious.

Of course, winning the Game of Thrones isn’t just about sitting on a spiky seat. It is about dominating the entire realm and all of its inhabitants – and making them like it. Which makes Daenerys Targaryen the perfect candidate for the job. Sure, there are plenty of reasons why Kahleesi shouldn’t win the Iron Throne, but let’s be honest, those all look pretty insignificant when put beside three dragons and an entire army of eunuchs. Shall we begin?

Here are the 15 Reasons Daenerys Will Win The Game Of Thrones.

15. She Might Be the Promised Prince (or Princess)

Thanks to a grammar lesson from translator extraordinaire Missandei, we now know there’s more to the myth of The Prince That Was Promised than meets the eye. Bleeding comets, dragons, salt, smoke and flaming weaponry, Daenerys definitely has shown signs of being Azor Ahai reborn. Sure, so has Jon Snow, Jamie Lannister, Beric Dondarrion, Sam Tarly, and Hot Pie, along with a whole lot of others, but few fit the bill better. Of course, there’s no reason why the promised one can’t be two, or even three heads of the same dragon, but at the moment, Dany is definitely in the lead.

For those not familiar with their Game of Thrones lore, the legend of The Prince That Was Promised is one of several closely related tales about a legendary hero that will save the world from darkness. In the version associated with Azor Ahai, a great figure who some eight thousand years prior forged a sword of fire (whose name is Lightbringer) by stabbing it through his wife’s heart to help defeat the White Walkers and restore peace to the realm, so that one day Sean Bean could have his head chopped off. Since then, worshippers of the Lord of Light have prophesied Azor’s return to repeat the feat in preventing the zombie apocalypse. If Daenerys is truly going to win the Game of Thrones, then she will need to conquer the White Walkers, and right now, the prophesies appear to be on her side, which would make her brother Rhaegar very proud.

14. She Has Literally Walked Through Fire (Twice)

Call it fate, God, the Lord of Light, George R. R. Martin – take your pick – somebody wants Daenerys Targaryen around till the end of Game of Thrones. After all, there have been no shortage of opportunities to knock her off or hardships to keep her from getting there. But every time Dany gets burned, she walks out unscathed, often naked, stronger and wiser then ever before. That’s because rulers aren’t born, they are forged.

When during season 6 the dosh khaleen plan on making Daenerys their eternal prisoner, she walks out scorch-free as her would-be overlords have their faces melted off, and she takes their place as the commander of the Dothraki. (They don’t call her “the Unburnt” for no reason.) This mirrors the finale of season 1, when she steps into the flaming funeral pyre of Khal Drogo and comes out sans clothes with three newly hatched dragon pups. While GRRM has stated she is not immune to fire (at least in the books), Dany’s resistance to getting burned alive is just one of the many signs that this Kahleesi is unstoppable, and shows if nothing else, her talent for survival suggests a larger purpose.

13. She is Benevolent

If there is one thing the characters of Game of Thrones can never be accused of, it is being good. But just like her infamous brother (the one that wasn’t a dick), Daenerys is not your typical Targaryen. She is fair, just and compassionate. After all, you don’t lock up your awesome dragons if you could care less about the sanctity of life.

Her moral compass may run askew occasionally, and oftentimes conveniently align with her actions to veil vengeance as charity, but she cannot be called inherently malevolent. If she acts harshly, it is never done lightly, and always in response to an inhumanity committed against either herself or her people. Daenerys may have stumbled in her ruling over Meereen and not always known the best way to do so, but her heart is primarily in the right place, and she is a staunch protector of the weak. All traits that will easily find support in obtaining the crown.

Chief Of Staff Confirms That Trump Is Under Investigation By Mueller (VIDEO)

Chief Of Staff Confirms That Trump Is Under Investigation By Mueller

 

Ever since the investigation into the 2016 election began, President Trump has steadfastly maintained that he isn’t personally under investigation.

Shortly after Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed earlier this year, Trump said former FBI Director James Comey had assured him he wasn’t part of the counterintelligence investigation being conducted by the FBI. And while that may be true in regard to counterintelligence, Comey didn’t offer any assurances that Trump wasn’t under criminal investigation.

And on Monday, just hours after indictments of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates were unsealed in Washington, the president was on Twitter trying to distract from the growing scandal:

And yet, when White House Chief of Staff John Kelly appeared on The Ingraham Angle Monday evening, he clearly suggested that his boss is indeed being investigated, telling the host:

“It’s very distracting to the president, as it would be to any citizen, to be investigated, while at the same time trying to carry the weight of what it means to be president of the United States on his shoulders.”

If that’s not confirmation, what exactly is?

As for Kelly’s whining that it’s an added “weight” on Trump to know he’s under the microscope while trying to do his job, all I can say is BOO FREAKING HOO! If he can’t handle the pressure, maybe he needs to step aside and let a legitimately elected person run the country. Someone like Hillary Clinton, who got nearly 3 million more votes than the Orange Menace.

Also, Trump made a choice to associate with unsavory characters like Manafort and Gates. He appointed Michael Flynn to one of the highest positions in the administration despite the fact that he was on the take from both the Russian and Turkish governments. You know the old saying: You are the company you keep.

So here’s a bit of advice for Trump and Kelly: No one wants to hear your pathetic whining. And we don’t believe any of your lies.

Here’s Kelly on Fox News:

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

 

 

Harvey Weinstein was apologetic and contrite during the Board of Directors meeting Tuesday when he resigned under pressure from the Board … sources connected to the meeting tell TMZ.

We’re told there was no screaming, no yelling, no anger. Harvey Weinstein told the Board, “I have a real problem,” and then apologized for the “trouble and confusion” he caused TWC.

We’re told Weinstein, who was on speaker phone from Arizona, told the Board he needed to build a new life and move on.

Our sources say everyone sounded conciliatory … partly because the handwriting was on the wall.  The Board made it clear Weinstein had a legal obligation to resign from the Board after it ratified his firing from TWC. He did just that.

Harvey, we’re told, was “peaceful” during the meeting and Bob was subdued.

We’re told the sense of the Board is that Harvey Weinstein will not force his firing to arbitration or court.

Our sources say both Harvey and Bob Weinstein have an overriding interest in making sure Colony Capital succeeds in restructuring the company — money. The each have roughly 21% equity interest in TWC, and if the company fails, they walk away with nothing.

As one source put it, “Harvey and Bob have a huge stake in making sure Colony Capital can put Humpty Dumpty back together again.”

Trump’s Net Worth Plummets By $600 Million

 

As much as Donald Trump loves to brag about how rich he is, turns out he’s a lot less wealthy than he was a year ago.

Forbes magazine has just released their annual ranking of the 400 richest Americans has some very bad news for the Donald: His net worth has fallen drastically by $600 million, meaning he’s only worth an estimated $3.1 billion. That drops him 92 spots on the Top 400 list, from #146 to #248.

Ouch!

What led to the sudden drop in Trump’s worth? Forbes notes:

“A tough New York real estate market, particularly for retail locations; a costly lawsuit and an expensive presidential campaign.”

Ironically, America’s richest people are richer than they were in 2016, but not Trump.

For the 24th year in a row, Bill Gates tops the list, with an estimated net worth of $89 billion. Here’s the rest of the top 10:

  • Jeff Bezos, Amazon, $67 billion
  • Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway, $65.5 billion
  • Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook, $55.5 billion
  • Larry Ellison, Oracle, $49.3 billion
  • Michael Bloomberg, Bloomberg LP, $45 billion
  • Charles Koch, Koch Industries, $42 billion
  • David Koch, Koch Industries, $42 billion
  • Larry Page, Google, $48.5 billion
  • Sergey Brin, Google, $37.5 billion

And Trump fared even worse on the Bloomberg’s worldwide billionaires list, which rates his worth at $2.86 billion. That doesn’t even qualify him to be named as one of the 500 richest people in the world.
