Trump Wins The Electoral Vote (And No, Hillary Didn't Win The Popular Vote)
Today, the electors of the Electoral College had their official vote, and one candidate lost electoral votes.
That would be Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton, who had 4 of her electors peel off and vote for someone else. In Washington, a state Clinton won, she ended up with only eight of the state's 12 electoral votes. Colin Powell received three votes and Native American tribal leader Faith Spotted Eagle received one. Two of Donald Trump's electors, both from Texas peeled off as well,one voting for Ron Paul and another for John Kasich. That gave him a total of 306, far above the 270 he needed. One of them was Christopher Suprun, who now faces prosecution under federal Stolen Valor statutes for claiming he was a 9/11 first responder when he wasn't anywhere near New York or Washington DC on the day in question. Probably just got confused...again.
There were, of course, protesters inside and outside the state capitol buildings where the votes were cast. After going to the trouble of harassing electors for over a month withe-mails, phone calls, and even death threats, they certainly weren't going to stop now. Some of the indoor tantrums were hilarious:
The entire clip on NBC News shows the man in the glasses warning her gently, exactly that way you would speak to a child..'now please sit down, or we'll have to give you a time out.'
When she went nuts, she was removed.
There are other clips of this sort of behavior, but this should suffice.
The part that isn't hilarious at all is the blatant disrespect for our democracy and the American people who voted for Donald Trump. The psychodrama was fueled by the myth of Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote, something the media keeps rehashing, perhaps in hopes people will eventually think of it as a fact. Actually, neither candidate won the popular vote, because neither got over 50% of it.
More to the point, the majority of Americans outside of the city limits of Los Angeles and New York City elected Trump.
As of November 27, according to The New York Times, Hillary Clinton had 62,391,335 votes from all states. She had 1,969,920 votes from the five counties that make up New York City, and 1,893,770 votes from Los Angeles County, California.
Donald Trump had 61,125,956 votes from all states, including 461,174 votes from the five counties that make up New York City, and 620,285 votes from Los Angeles County.
In other words, Hillary beat Trump 3,863,690 votes to 1,081,459 votes in New York City and Los Angeles.
But Trump beat Hillary by 60,044,497 votes to 58,527,645 votes in the rest of the country outside the borders of New York City and Los Angeles. So Hillary’s margin in the popular vote rests ENTIRELY on her margin in two large cities — neither of which was contested by the Trump campaign.
Arguing that Hillary 'won' is like saying that the Cleveland Indians should have won the World Series because they got more runs than the Chicago Cubs.
But wait, it gets better.
Remember Jill Stein's Hillary Clinton backed recount attempt? Originally, it was ordered in the State of Michigan by U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith, an Obama appointee even though Stein had no standing since there was no way a recount would have affected her. She proceeded to file suit in two other states Trump won, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. And then suddenly, the whole scam ground to a halt, with Goldsmith hurriedly reversing himself.
That happened after Trump started gaining votes in all three states...and clear evidence of voter fraud was found in Wayne County affecting over 37% of the precincts in Detroit showing more votes than there were registered voters,which is why Judge Goldsmith was happy to reverse himself and let sleeping dogs lie. Similar evidence was found in Wisconsin (Dane County) and Philadelphia, but since recounts were never really started in Wisconsin or Pennsylvania, we have no clue as to how many votes Trump may have actually gotten.
Jill Stein took the $2 million she scammed off this and went home, but there's also evidence in states Hillary won that Stein never contested. There's also evidence of voter fraud in Chicago and quite a bit of evidence in Clark County (Las Vegas)Nevada, where most of the staes illegal migrants live. Trump lost Nevada by only 26,434 votes, but we'll never know if he actually did. Ditto in California, with the highest population of illegal migrants in the U.S., no voter ID laws whatsoever, easily obtained matricula consular cards from the Mexican consulate as the only ID needed to get a driver's license or register a vehicle and automatic voter registration when you do.
California also rarely if ever purges its voter registration rolls. My mother, a devout Democrat got her usual absentee ballot over a year after she passed away at the house I own she lived in that's now rented out to tenants. I could very easily have used it to make her vote for Trump if I lacked a heart.
So the whole narrative that 'Hillary Clinton won the popular vote' is sheer nonsense. Fake news, if you like.
What isn't fake is what the Left has planned. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama could have helped unite the country by simply saying what they already knew...that Donald Trump had won the presidency fair and square, that the American people needed to respect the vote, and that it was time to put the campaign aside and get behind the new president. Instead, they chose to aid and abet further division and try to deligitimize the election.
Even Bill Clinton has gotten into the act. Today, as an elector for New York State, he cast his vote for Mrs. Clinton but couldn't avoid saying, "At the end we had the Russians and the FBI deal – she couldn't prevail against that."
Of course! It was the Russians who forced Hillary and her minions to violate the Federal Records Act multiple times and commit felonies. It was Putin who made her set up those illegal servers to hide her crooked deals concerning the Clinton Foundation and then delete and bleachbit 32,000 emails that were under congressional subpoena. It was Putin who made Hillary put classified material on her private server and then lie about it to congress. The Russians forced the DNC to send all those e-mails bragging about how they rigged the primaries,fed Hillary debate questions and made all those racist, misogynist and anti-semitic remarks. And it was Putin who made Hillary's chief aide Huma Abedin put emails concerning State Department business on an unprotected laptop she shared with her pervert husband and lie about it to the FBI. Now, I know Putin is a fairly strong leader but I had no idea he had such magic powers of hypnotism!
Vladimir Putin has modestly denied these magical powers,telling President Obama to provide proof that Russia hacked those emails of shut up. But I'm sure we can believe Bill Clinton,who never lies, right?
Besides, the media is going with that same narrative.
We'll see what comes next.
