Electoral backfire

So far, more Clinton electors are proving faithless than Trump electors. Up to 7, apparently. And according to Fox News, Trump is now safely past 270.

The Ascendance of the God-Emperor continues!

The Electoral College formalized Donald Trump's election victory on Monday despite protests around the country to encourage GOP electors to abandon the Republican. The president-elect easily racked up the 270 electoral votes needed to send him to the White House....

Some electors did break with how their state voted, albeit in unexpected ways. In Washington, a state Clinton won by 16 points, the former secretary of state received just eight of the state's 12 electoral votes. Colin Powell received three votes and Native American tribal leader Faith Spotted Eagle received one as part of an effort to promote a candidate other than Trump.

An elector in both Maine and Minnesota attempted to cast a ballot for Bernie Sanders, who unsuccessfully challenged Clinton in the Democratic primary. However state laws requiring electors to follow the statewide vote invalidated both efforts.

Only one Republican elector, Christopher Suprun of Texas, publically pledged not to vote for Trump despite his state heavily favoring the president-elect last month. One other Texas elector also abandoned Trump in the final vote.

I told you scare-mongers it was nothing. You know who you are. How did I know? Because it was David Pakman reporting on it. As I proved, conclusively, during GamerGate, David Pakman is a shameless liar.

We're still waiting on Texas to put him over the top. Right now he has 268 electoral votes. Hillary cannot win the electoral college at this point since the four Washington electors pulled their votes for her.

@18 @20:

During the primaries I expressed the opinion that Hillary really needed to be denied the nomination, just to make it clear to her that We.Did.Not.Like.Her and that she had no further role to play in national politics.

But the way things have worked out, having to manipulate and cheat like a bastard just to get the nomination, lose the general despite manipulating and cheating like a bastard and capping all off with a "grassroots" campaign to make electors faithless, only to have more Hillary electors go against faith than Trump electors:

Well, the added shiv twists might just have made it all worth it.

From my understanding of what I just read about her, while Trump can remove her from the Chair, she would still be on the Board of Governors until 2024.

She does not intend to leave of her own accord. So Trump will probably have to request her resignation as Chair. I hope he does. She is going to submarine him every chance she gets if she is left in place.

79 (not including the bloc-move of Virginia in 1836 for VP and the 71 who changed their vote instead of voting for a dead guy) faithless electors in 58 Presidential elections and 6 of them were for this election. Quite an uptick. I'm not sure of the age of the faithless electors, but I have a feeling with "Generation Me" this is going to become an increasingly common occurrence. When I'm old and grey, if the Millennials don't euthanize me first because I don't make them happy, I'd be willing to bet that faithless electors have put more than 1 president in office that "didn't belong there."

The MSM follow suit like the lemmings they are. Obama intends to stay in DC and keep attacking the God-Emperor. There is already 100's of millions more dollars being supplied for attack ads against Trump and his cabinet selections. Obama and people like Pelosi still leading will cut off all oxygen to any possible new ideas that might regroup the Left and the DNC. They will double down with the same or similar attacks that cost them the election. More protests will occur, probably including violence. People on the Right will be called witches, or xenophobes, Nazis, KKK, and other terrible names. They might even chose Rep. Keith Ellison as a new leader, an amazing death spiral commander. Showing solidarity with Muslims is sure to get new people involved.

And maybe there was a female earl somewhere along the line back then, but my skepticism is more than a bit high.

And those are just the most obvious. There's plenty of other very questionable elements along the way that show the typical Hollywood feminist influence of late.

If you go back and read history, those are some of the very claims that were made about Teddy Roosevelt, from the chattering elites of his day. But what did the people think of Teddy as President? They loved him. And what do we as a nation think about Teddy now? We revere him as one of our greats.

(This is not meant as a commentary on Teddy's actual policies, many of which were abysmal. But there is no denying he was one hell of an AMERICA booster.)
