Tomorrow the nation’s Electoral College votes.
Donald Trump has more EC votes than needed to get the final vote to put him in the Oval Office, even with the alleged GOP electors that allegedly will not cast their vote(s) for him. It is mostly Nancy Pelosi’s ‘rude’ and obnoxious daughter Christine, who happens to be an elector herself, that is leading the democrat electors’ charge to disrupt the vote tomorrow…
Oh, and C. Pelosi is insisting electors “see” the alleged intelligence allegedly connecting Russia with anything involving this election. Um, exactly what sort of security clearance the electors actually have to see any sort of intel on anything?
And then there is the continuing outside harassment and death threats to the states’ electors…
On Monday, members of the Electoral College will cast their historic votes for the next president of the United States. In the meantime, they are under siege.
The nation’s 538 presidential electors have been thrust into the political foreground like never before in American history. In the aftermath of a uniquely polarizing presidential contest, the once-anonymous electors are squarely in the spotlight, targeted by death threats, harassing phone calls and reams of hate mail. One Texas Republican elector said he’s been bombarded with more than 200,000 emails.
“I never can imagine harassing people like this. It’s just f—– up,” said Jim Rhoades, a Republican elector from Michigan who runs a home inspection service. “I’ve lost a bunch of business.”
In recent decades, the Electoral College had become such a reliable rubber stamp of Election Day results that it was viewed as an afterthought.
But with many Democrats desperate to block the all-but-certain ascension of Donald Trump to the White House, this long-neglected body has been gripped by turmoil, and its members have been subjected to pleas to upend centuries of tradition by casting their votes for someone other than the president-elect.
There have been ad campaigns targeting electors and op-eds assailing their role. One Democratic member of Congress has called to delay the vote for president while an investigation of Russian involvement in the election is underway. Two others have pleaded with electors to consider Russia’s role when deciding how to vote. Progressive groups are preparing protests across the country at sites where electors will meet to cast their ballots. Personal contact information for many electors has been posted publicly — and it’s been used to bury them with massive email campaigns.
Last week saw the release of a video of celebrities like Martin Sheen pleading with Republican electors to vote for someone other than Trump. On Saturday, Unite for America — the group behind the video — began sending personalized versions to electors in which Sheen and more than a dozen others call them out by name.
The body’s 306 Republicans have faced the most acute pressure of all. Several, like Rhoades, told POLITICO they receive thousands of emails a day from anti-Trump advocates, much of it auto-generated from forms available online…
“I think that Putin saw the United States withdrawing from around the world. I think, actually, the problem has been that President Obama’s actions often have not matched his rhetoric,” Gates told Chuck Todd.
“His rhetoric has often been pretty tough,” the former CIA director said of Obama. “But then there’s been no follow-up and no action. And if you combine that with red lines that have been crossed, demands that [Syrian President Bashar] Assad step down with no plan to actually figure out how to make that happen, the withdrawal from the Middle East, from Iraq and Afghanistan and essentially the way it was done, I think it sent a signal that the U.S. was in retreat.”
Gates said “some of the the things” that have occurred under the current administration indicated that Obama was interested in “withdrawing from a global leadership role.”
“And I think Putin felt he could take advantage of that,” he said.
Former DNC chair Donna Brazile is echoing the monotone accusation that Russia hacked the election … Mind you, there was NO HACKING of the election, but they are all making the Wikileak released of real DNC hacked emails of their own hijacking of the dem primary and other wrongdoings out as a hacking of the election. And Legal Insurrection is asking…

That is fact(s), and not non-evidential allegations.
People behind WikiLeaks are confirming it was not the Russians who hacked the DNC, but one of their own disgruntled insiders ratting on the political organization.
Meanwhile, in the typical democrat party effort to remove scandalous evidence from the table, DOJ AG Loretta Lynch is now “regretful” of that clandestine Arizona tarmac meeting with Hillary’s husband Bill just hours before her FBI questioning and short days before the decision not to indict Hillary.
Oh, and this guy who is a GOP elector in Texas saying he will not be voting for Donald Trump tomorrow has a very bad reputation:
Even a writer at HuffPo last week is loudly sighing: “Hillary Clinton Lost. Get Over It And Stop Blaming Russia, WikiLeaks And ‘Fake’ News”
Seriously, at some point the libs/left have to give up the self-foolery and ridiculous endless post-election fuckery and move on.
The left just needs to take a friggin Zoloft already, eh, Zo?
The American MSM is about as useful as a poopy-flavored lollypop…
