She is an attention maniac. She’s not pushing her book she’s pushing herself. I’ll bet she never read the book.

I’ve read enough of it to conclude that she has to be the actual author thereof. No competent ghostwriter would produce such drivel.

You’re probably right.

Time, and past time, to fulfill Trump’s campaign promise, and
“Lock Her Up."

There’s still a possibility that Hillary didn’t actually win the popular vote either imo.

And speaking of the unconstitutional (imo) popular vote for president, consider the differences in constitutional definitions for voters for members the House of Representatives versus voters for POTUS. (Note that the Founding States had originally given the people the power to elect only members of the House, not senators or the president.)

From a related thread …

Simply put, there was nothing stopping the delegates to the Constitutional Convention from including the language from the Constitution’s Article I, Section 2, Clause 1 (1.2.1), that clause defining the election process for House of Representatives members, into Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 (2.1.2) the process for selecting presidential electors.

Instead, while the language of 1.2.1, "chosen every second Year by the People of the several States," shows that the delegates basically gave the House of Representatives to the people on a silver platter, in stark contrast the delegates put an extremely small limit on the number of electors for president in 2.1.2.

The main reason that ordinary citizens are now so interested in who the president is imo, is that they have probably never been taught about the federal government's constitutionally limited powers, and consequently don't understand that the states have given the feds very little power to make domestic policy.

In fact, if an example of federal domestic policy is not related to the US Mail Service (1.8.7), or trade between the states and foreign nations (1.8.3), then citizens can bet that the example is unconstitutional and probably be right most of the time.

Pres. Trump will hopefully be elected for a second term, and will also hopefully be the last president elected by unconstitutional popular vote.

And speaking of Trump, although he is accomplishing a LOT as president, it remains that since the uniparty Congress wants to get rid of him that his first two years in office are arguably for practice. That being said ...

Drain the swamp sewer! Drain the sewer!

Remember in November 2018 !

Since corrupt Congress is the biggest part of the sewer (imo) that Trump wants to drain, it is actually up to us patriots to drain the sewer in the 2018 elections, patriots supporting Trump by electing as many new members of Congress as they can who will support Trump.

In the meanwhile, patriots need to make sure that there are plenty of Trump-supporting candidates on the primary ballots.

Patriots need to qualify candidates by asking them why the Founding States made the Constitution’s Section 8 of Article I; to limit (cripple) the federal government’s powers.

Patriots also need to make sure that candidates are knowledgeable of the Supreme Court's clarifications of the federal government’s limited powers listed here.

Also, unlike incumbent members of Congress who wrongly remained silent while misguided state officials abridged the constitutionally enumerated rights of citizens during the lawless Obama Administration, patriots need to make sure that candidates on the 2018 primary ballots commit to the following.

Candidates need to commit to making and enforcing 14th Amendment-related laws to prosecute misguided state officials who use state powers to abridge constitutionally enumerated protections, 1st Amendment-protected religious expression and free speech for example, such actions prohibited by Section 1 of the 14th Amendment.

”14th Amendment, Section 1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States [emphasis added]; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

Again, drain the sewer! Drain the sewer!

After the voters handed Hitlery her ass last year, and we waited for the months to go by, I’m sure we all recall the number of times lefties called for the Electoral College to ignore the law and elect Hitlery. How far back shall we go? I recall threads from 10+ years ago regarding the Fat Pantsuit calling for the abolition of the Electoral College after Gore tried to steal the 2000 election. By the time Missus William Clinton was in the Senate, that talk vanished.

Here's Business Insider's map of the actual Electoral results, along with their fake news one from earlier. I was hanging out at work, after midnight, with another Trump supporter and coworker, and pointing out how the Partisan Media Shills were refusing to broadcast the Pennsylvania results, which was the nail in Klinton's Koffin -- had it gone the other way, they'd have been calling the election at 7:30 pm:
Thanks .

Time to abort voter fraud.

3 million voters can be wrong.
