House Democrats attempted to lodge protests Friday against the Electoral College votes of several of the states that backed President-elect Donald Trump but each was ruled out of order by Vice President Joseph R. Biden. Protesters then attempted to disrupt the count, standing up and chanting their own objections as they were dragged from the chamber by police officers. Mr. Trump was confirmed the winner with 304 electoral votes, well more than the 270 needed for a majority. Hillary Clinton, the Democrats’ nominee, earned 227 votes. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence was also confirmed as the next vice president, with 305 electoral votes. As the roll call of states proceeded a handful of House Democrats refused to accept the results, claiming that massive voter suppression, interference by Russian-backed actors and other problems poisoned the vote in a number of states, making it invalid. But under the rules, an objection needs to be in writing and signed by a member of both the House and Senate. No senators signed onto the objections, and Mr. Biden tossed each of them out.
And our Republic stands strong as ever! Kudos to VP Joe Biden (D) for doing his job and not putting up with this nonsense from members of his own party. Crazy Uncle Joe, as he is sometimes called, oftentimes does and says some breathtakingly stupid things. But, on this day, when it mattered, he stepped up. So, we give credit where credit is due. Now..all you sore loser Dems…it is now officially over.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D-CO) signed two measures to allow voters to choose presidential nominees through a primary, and not caucus, process. Each measure was approved by voters in November referenda by margins of two-to-one. Proposition 108 allows all voters to participate in party primaries, even if they are not affiliated with parties. Colorado voters, since 2004, were required to identify themselves as Democrats or Republicans in order to participate in presidential primaries. Proposition 107 eliminates the state’s caucus procedures. Hickenlooper, a Democrat, signed both on Tuesday. Se. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., won Colorado’s Democratic caucuses in 2016. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, won the most delegates in Republican Party district conventions, held instead of precinct-level caucuses. It is anticipated the expanded primary procedures will increase the cost of elections in Colorado, and local and state governments will pay for them. The state estimates the 2020 presidential primaries will cost it $2.7 million, and counties are expected to spend an estimated $5.3 million.
Oh yea.. What this also means is that those unaffiliated voters can just arbitrarily vote in a primary. That should not happen, and was a big con that a bunch of Democrat lawyers inserted into the ballot initiative. Only those registered with a certain party should be allowed to vote in that party’s primary.
Donald Trump won the Electoral College vote on Monday and secured his election as the 45th president of the United States, as the latest – and perhaps last – stop-Trump movement failed to gain traction in state capitals. A fervent push by anti-Trump forces to persuade electors to defect had turned the normally mundane civic procedure into high drama. But Trump easily surpassed the 270 electoral votes needed to win, as representatives tabbed to cast ballots in accordance with their states’ Nov. 8 decision mostly adhered to the election results. After all the states had voted, Trump finished with 304 votes and Clinton had 227. Texas put Trump over the top, despite two Republican electors casting protest votes. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence afterward tweeted “congratulations” to his running mate while saying he was “honored & humbled” to be officially elected the next vice president. Republican National Committee Co-Chair Sharon Day urged Trump’s detractors to stop fighting his election, now that his victory is affirmed. “This historic election is now officially over and I look forward to President-elect Trump taking the oath of office in January,” she said in a statement. “For the good of the country, Democrats must stop their cynical attempts to undermine the legitimacy of this election, which Donald Trump won decisively in the Electoral College with more votes than any Republican since 1988.” Elector antics were few and far between throughout the day, with most the disruptions occurring on the Democratic side. A Democratic elector in Maine tried to vote for Sen. Bernie Sanders, but switched to Clinton after it was ruled improper. Another who tried to vote for Sanders in Minnesota was replaced; a Colorado elector who tried to back Ohio Gov. John Kasich likewise was replaced. One of the biggest deviations was in Washington state, where three electors voted for Colin Powell and one voted for “Faith Spotted Eagle;” the remaining eight went to Clinton, the state’s winner. It marked the first time in four decades the state’s electors broke from the popular vote. Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman vowed to work with the state attorney general and charge the four unfaithful electors with a violation of Washington state civil law. Such violations carry a fine up to $1,000. With Trump’s win now secured, a joint session of Congress is scheduled for Jan. 6 to certify the results. Trump’s clear Electoral College victory could serve to deter any further last-ditch efforts to effectively nullify his November win and prevent his inauguration, though the battle may shift next to his Cabinet picks.
It’s finally over, thank God! As expected, Trump easily won the electoral vote, and it was simply affirmed today. The magic number, of course, was 270. He exceeded that with over 30 electoral votes to spare. That was never in any doubt, despite the best efforts of tools like Michael Moore, George Soros, and those nauseating B and C lister HollyWEiRD celebs in that silly video they put out begging the electors to violate their oath, and earn their “respect.” The real irony is that most of the “faithless” electors were on the Dem side! I wonder if Vlad Putin was part of that too! lol As was mentioned, a joint session of Congress will be convened on Jan 6th, the certify this election.
On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” filmmaker Michael Moore argued that President-Elect Donald Trump “has no right” to enter the White House. Moore called for “protesting, obstructing, disrupting, civil disobedience.” He added, “I mean, the man has no right to enter that house. There are too many questions about the — whatever collusion was going on. I mean, they admitted that they were in touch with the Russians during the campaign. They have said that. So, we would need to know as Americans what the hell was going on there, and he does not have a mandate. He does not have a mandate.”
Huh? Did this calorically-challenged buffoon NOT see the results of this last election? Of course Trump has “a mandate,” you stupid tool! Someone needs to break down an electoral map for Michael…and make sure it’s colored, to make it a little easier for him. Of course Trump as a “right to enter” the White House next month. This is just more hysterical lunacy from the extreme, socialist liberals (like Michael Moore, and the HollyWEIRD celebs who put out that video begging electors to not vote for Trump tomorrow) who are still in denial over what happened and are frantically doing everything they can to stop what WILL happen. What a bunch of sore losers..
