Donald Trump Seals Electoral College Victory, Officially Becomes 45th US President-Elect
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!”
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: firstname.lastname@example.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.
