A few minutes ago, the Electoral College votes for Donald Trump went over the 270 needed to a total of 304 (vs. 224 for Hillary)!
Donald Trump is officially elected the 45th President of the United States of America.
Despite all the death threats and harassing/intimidating phone calls and emails directed at Republican Electors (Pennsylvanian Electors even had police protection and escort); despite the unprecedented video of idiotic Hollyweirdos, led by Martin Sheen, asking Electors not to vote for Trump; despite murmurs of bribes, the Electors stood firm and voted in accordance with how the residents of their respective states had voted.
Thank you, Electors!
Not a single GOP Elector buckled under the pressure and voted for Hillary, although one voted for Ron Paul (who is not on the ballot), and another for John Kasich. Both are Texas electors.
7 Democrat Electors went rogue by not casting their votes for Hillary as they were supposed to:
- In Colorado, a Democrat elector tried to vote for John Kasich and was replaced by an alternate elector, who voted for Hillary because state law requires electors to vote for the winner of the state’s popular vote. (NPR)
- In Maine, a Democratic elector voted for Bernie Sanders instead of Clinton. He was ruled “out of order,” and he voted for Clinton in a second vote.
- In Minnesota, Muhammad Abdurrahman, a former Bernie Sanders delegate to the Democratic National Convention, attempted to vote for no candidate. His vote was declared invalid and an alternate elector was appointed, enabling the state to go ahead and deliver its 10 electoral votes for Hillary Clinton. (The Hill)
- In Washington, while 8 of the state’s 12 electors voted for Clinton, 4 electors went rogue, 2 of whom voted for Colin Powell, and 2 for Faith Spotted Eagle — a Native American who has been active in the Dakota pipeline protests. (ZeroHedge)
We can expect more shenanigans from Democrats in the month until inauguration. But their bag of tricks is rapidly depleting, and We The People will expose and call them on their chicanery every step of the way.
Hillary Clinton, a truly evil woman, will never be POTUS!
The countdown begins! Let’s Make America Great Again!
