Wisconsin Leftist Metldown:  Yells to Electors “You don’t Deserve to be in America! You Sold Us Out!  … This is MY America!  This is MY America!”

 

From zerohedge.com:

It’s finally over: Donald Trump has secured 304 Electoral Votes following the Texas vote (with 2 faithless electors), officially securing the presidency of the United States.  Of course, the now official President-Elect Trump took to twitter to confirm the victory:

We did it! Thank you to all of my great supporters, we just officially won the election (despite all of the distorted and inaccurate media).

A quick recap of the day’s events from the WSJ:

 Members of the Electoral College meeting in state capitals across the country on Monday confirmed President-elect Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 election, ending a last-ditch campaign to deny him the presidency. Mr. Trump amassed at least 270 electoral votes on Monday afternoon—enough to officially become the president-elect over his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, according to a tally of votes by the Associated Press.

 

Typically just a formality, this year’s Electoral College vote attracted an outsize amount of attention after a group of mostly Democratic electors made a late push to block Mr. Trump’s path to the White House. They argued the Electoral College had a constitutional duty to act independently of the will of the voters in extraordinary circumstances. Protesters gathered in several state capitols across the country to encourage electors to reject Mr. Trump.

 

Four Democratic electors in Washington state broke ranks—with three casting ballots for former Secretary of State Colin Powell, and one for Native American activist Faith Spotted Eagle. In the vice presidential vote, the Washington vote was even more unusual, with electors casting votes for a trio of female U.S. senators: Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Maria Cantwell of Washington and Susan Collins of Maine. Another elector cast a ballot for Winona LaDuke, an environmental activist.

 

Several other attempts by electors to cast ballots failed. The Associated Press reported that attempts by Democratic electors in Colorado and Maine to vote for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders failed. In Maine, the elector was ordered to vote again, while in Colorado an elector was replaced.

The final count:

  • 304 Trump
  • 228 Clinton
  • 3 Powell
  • 1 Kasich/ Paul
  • 1 FAITH SPOTTED EAGLE

 

COMMENTARY FROM OATH KEEPERS:

Congratulations to the GOP Electors who “stuck to their guns” despite death threats and intimidation by tantrum-throwing leftists who inundated the Electors with calls, emails, and even in-person “visits” to their homes.   As far as we can tell, this is the first time in American history that Electors actually received multiple death threats by political zealots attempting to terrorize them into changing their votes.  Just imagine what Obama, Clinton, and the mainstream press would be saying if the situation was reversed, and Trump supporters had threatened to kill Democratic electors in an attempt to force them to change their votes.   The Trump supporters issuing such threats would have been condemned as terrorists, anti-democratic extremists, and traitors, and there would have been widespread demands for their arrests.

But when Democratic supporters threatened to kill electors, along with calling for the assassination of Trump and the raping and killing of his family members, the Obama Admin, Hillary Clinton, and Democratic Party leaders were entirely silent, and likewise for their fellow-traveler comrades in the media.   We heard crickets.    By their silence they signaled their approval of this terrorist campaign of intimidation of electors.

While Oath Keepers is a non-partisan organization, we are also sworn to defend the Constitution, and that means also defending the electors who are part of the constitutional process of electing a President, when they are threatened with death by terrorists.    And that is why, on November 18, 2016, we extended an offer of free protection to electors who were the recipients of death threats or otherwise were concerned for their safety.    Some of the death threats promised to kill the electors if they dared to vote for Trump.

Given the very real threat of terrorist reprisals against the electors who voted Trump, our offer of protection still stands.  If any of those electors has a concern for their safety or the safety of their family, they can still request our protection by emailing us at:   electors@oathkeepers.org.    That protection will be offered and provided for as long as they feel the need.

This is the same kind of protection we offer to military and police families who are targeted by terrorists.  We see it as our duty to stand in the gap against terrorists in our communities, such as when Oath Keepers members across the country stood guard at recruiting centers across the nation after the horrific terrorist attack on the Chattanooga, TN recruiting and reservist centers.   We likewise will help and support our local police who are clearly being targeted by terrorists, with the Dallas and Baton Rouge attacks being but the most extreme examples of an ongoing trend.

We fear that in the days ahead we will see an increase in terrorist attacks inside the United States by both radical leftist and jihadist terrorists.  Their targets will be police and military (including their families), veterans, and anyone seen as being on the political right, along with the general population.   This will be akin to a modern version of the Weather Underground wave of terrorism and attacks on police in the 1970s, but with an expanded target list.

Yes, much of what we are seeing are just silly leftist temper tantrums, such as the woman in the photo above, who yelled at the Wisconsin electors and told them they don’t deserve to be in America, and “this is my America!”   Or the people waving signs and screeching about the “popular vote” (meaning the total nationwide) even though that has no bearing on our process for electing a President – and thank God, otherwise the high population big cities would always dominate the process and lord it over us folks in “flyover country.”   After eight years of Obama, many leftists have forgotten what it is like to be out of political power.  And for most of the “twenty somethings” among them, all their adult lives “their side” has been in power.  They truly believe they rightfully deserve a permanent lock on political power because they are “progressive,” and that makes the rest of us “regressive,” I suppose.  They spent eight years insulting anyone who dared disagree with their agenda in the slightest, calling us “low wattage voters” and “RAAACISTS!” if we dared oppose anything Obama did.   And that is one of the reasons they lost.  Great strategy for increasing their base of support – insult and alienate millions of working class stiffs, while you continue to destroy our economy with idiotic policies.  And then run one of the most hated and plainly corrupt political hacks in American history, who was the First Lady when that destruction of our economy got off to a roaring start with NAFTA.   A woman who was hated by a majority of her own party, who actually preferred Bernie Sanders.   Great job!

But rather than acknowledge their own failings, leftists instead doubled down on stupid and now insist that the only reason Trump won is because America is in the grips of a fascist wave of racism and hatred, and also  … Russians!  Yes, it was the Russians … and fake news!   So, those pesky Russians, using fake news, harnessed the dark, latent underbelly of American racism and fascism to put their boy in power.   That’s what they are telling themselves, over and over.  We are all just racist fascists, who want a Fourth Reich, rather than just being Americans who are tired of being bossed around by leftist “activists” who want to rip apart our culture and our Constitution and remake it in their Marxist image.   And so we have legions of young “useful idiots” throwing collective hissy fits on college campuses across the country, going in for milk, cookies, and a teddy bear as they suck their thumbs and plot “direct action.”

Yes, most of them are pathetic, spoiled metrosexual, latte sipping, pajama-boys who can’t fight their way out of a paper sack.  And most of them are just talk.  But recall that Bill Ayer’s violent Weather Underground terrorist organization of the 70s came directly out of the Students for a Democratic Society.   There will be a percentage who take their rhetoric seriously enough to actually use violence, and they will seek out alliances with, and training from, experienced jihadist terrorists, just as the leftists did in the 1970s.

Now that the radical left is no longer in a dominant position politically, they will increasingly resort to “politics by other means.”  And that means terrorism and intentional disruptions of our economy, along with manufactured riots, and manufactured racial strife.  Divide and conquer meets creative chaos.   Expect it.  Prepare for it.   That is their “Plan B” and it will be in conjunction with an increase in terrorism by the jihadists in our midst.   Two peas in the same terrorist pod, with a common enemy – Western Civilization – and a common goal; the destruction of the Republic.

Prepare yourselves for a long, hard fight, right down into your local community.

  1. Oathkeepers – you are an amazing group! Thank you for all that you do and your offers of protection. God bless you!

  2. Exactly. The assassination of Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov by an islamist is an example of the activities our current fraudulent administration engages and supports in to push the NWO agenda down the tracks. It’s an all out attack on our nationalism with what Stewart mentions plus one million other avenues. The bathhouse rainbow foreigner in the rainbow house along with his bosses and subordinates are full out on destroying us from within, overtly driving more hate and division.

    With the new work accomplished on the fraudulent Barry birth certificate, one would expect such a crime to be prosecuted thoroughly with the blessing of a new administration. And let’s not forget the entirety of information in hundreds of thousands of emails.

    There is a plethora of things that need an immediate concentrated effort to resolve, all equal in importance.

  3. Congratulations Mr. Trump, we got our foot in the door, now we have to put it warp drive, there are decades of destruction to be fixed, and 8 years to do it in.

  4. Isn’t intimidating electoral voters illegal and a punishable offense? Well, I suppose those idiots who emailed, called and sent mail, pretty much left a paper trail now, didn’t they?

  5. This is a good day in America. The left and others that do not care what they do to try and change that outcome of the election should know that we will not run from them, but strengthen our resolve to stand for the Republic at all cost.

  6. The last hurdle comes in January, when the puppets of the globalists who want a civil war will be in DC to bait us into a riot and terrorize the country. But we don’t want a civil war where we fight against each other. We want a powerful resistance to fight against the globalists. The Establishment are the globalists. Don’t take the bait. Be in DC on Inauguration day to form a perimeter around the Electoral College and an inside perimeter along Constitution Avenue. No president has worked as hard as President Trump to keep the gift we gave him. Once he gets into the Oval Office, it’s up to us to give him a brand new Congress that will work WITH him. It’s up to US to help him accomplish what we the people want. He’s on our sie and we’re not used to that. Remember, if we elect good people on the local and state levels, we can get good people into Congress. I wouldn’t re-elect any member of this Congress – not one of them.

  7. Not only were the democrats and President Obama complicit by being silent about the threats but he/they fanned the flames with their claims of Russian hacking.

  8. I agree 100% death threats in any circumstance are wrong and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. However I do not see any thing wrong with protesting. Under the first amendment we have the right to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition our government. Now I am not talking about the couple of violent protests that broke out, I am referring to the peaceful citizens who want their opinion heard. We don’t have to agree with the message but as long as they stay within the boundaries of the first amendment I don’t have an issue with the protests.

  9. Though the drama is not quite finished, the feeling of satisfaction and the realization that this non-citizen muslim traitor, is finally vacating OUR White House is a God send. The Communist leftists in the Democrat Party and in OUR Congress, are a disgrace to us and our forefathers and their vision of America.Thank you all at Oathkeepers for your desire to continue to uphold your oath to defend our Constitution. God bless you, God Bless and protect President-elect Donald Trump, and God Bless America.

  10. Vigilance is a Virtue; complacency is a vice. Mr. Trump is not yet the President-Elect. Yesterday (December 19th), the Electors for each State met to vote by ballot for President and Vice President. On January 6th, at 1pm, the Congress (in joint session), will receive the voting certificates from the States, they will be opened, counted, and the results will be delivered to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate announces the state of the vote, which is sufficient declaration of the President-Elect and Vice President-Elect (assuming a candidate has met the majority requirement). However (and here is the rub), 3 USC Chapter 1 paragraph 15(b) then provides that the President of the Senate shall call for any objection. All that is takes is for one Senator and one Representative to object (immediately and in writing) and the Senate and House must retire to their Chamber to resolve the objection. This would be chaos. Can we imagine Elizabeth Warren and Nancy Pelosi objecting? I don’t know, but tune in to CSPAN at 1pm on January 6th to find out.

    For those who wish to know more, I refer them to the document, Constitutional Hiring & Firing the President, 2nd Edition, by Albert Small and Elizabeth A. Downey, available at Amazon. This is an extremely detailed and exhaustive study of the process and I highly recommend it.

    I was concerned that in my “chaos scenario” (above) that an incumbent would be inclined to continue exercising powers of office after the Constitutional end of term. The authors admonish that “officers under oath to the Constitution would be required to refuse his/her orders as unlawful, to install a Constitutional Acting President, and take appropriate law-enforcement action. Amen.

    1. David, thank you so much for pointing that out! And thanks for the recommendation of that book. I have a copy on the way next day air.

      And that last point is especially well taken.

      If Obama attempts to stay in office past the constitutional end of his term, the US military, as well as all other officers, both federal and state, would be under obligation to not just refuse his orders, but to actively remove him and arrest him as an usurper. And it falls to the militia, above all, to execute the laws of the union. But of course, we don’t have real, organized militia anymore.
