  • Partisan composition of state legislatures (could determine presidential election)

    Ballotpedia ^ | 3/2020
    NOTE FROM DFU - during Bush/Gore recount, I spoke with the office of the Speaker of the House for Florida. To keep Gore from stealing the election, he was prepared to call joint session of the state legislature and, since GOP was in strong control of both bodies, they were prepared to award their state's electors to Bush. If their is massive voter fraud and manipulation by the Dems, state legislatures could actually decide the election. The stats in the article show GOP controlling most states. I have not determined the number of total electors in those states. If GOP...
  • Federal appeals court rules that presidential electors can basically screw over voters

    The National Sentinel ^ | 8/23/19 | Jon Dougherty
    As the Democrat Left seeks to circumvent the Electoral College with the National Popular Vote Compact, in which states agree to assign their presidential electors to whomever receives the most votes nationally, even if the other candidate won their state, a federal appeals court has thrown even more shade at voters. As the Washington Free Beacon reported Wednesday, a federal appeals court in Colorado ruled 2-1 that the then-secretary of state was wrong to remove and replace an elector who wanted to cast his ballot for GOP alternative John Kasich rather than Hillary Clinton, who won in Colorado. [...] You...

    Having learned the Senate Judiciary Committee details of the goooooooogle direct proprietary manipulation of election votes, according to Dr. Epstein's testimony before Sen. Ted Cruz-- ie. the changing of votes in the range of 2.6 million bottom estimate to 10.4 million in favor of clinton-- Have to ask the status of any challenge at all to certain crazed "hurt" blue states that want to eliminate the electoral college but can't, so they've voted to force their own bound Electors to vote in the College for the popular vote totals (not those as compiled by their own State, which the Constitution...
  • Brief Filed in Federal Case Challenging “Winner-take-All” Election of Presidential Electors

    On May 7, the plaintiffs filed this 40-page brief in League of United Latin American Citizens v Abbott, w.d. Texas, 5:18cv-175. This sets forth why the plaintiffs believe that the winner-take-all system for choosing presidential electors in 48 states violates the First and Fourteenth Amendments. There are similar cases pending in three other states. It just happens that the Texas case is the first one in which the plaintiffs have set forth their legal argument. All four cases have the same high-powered law firms working for the plaintiffs.

    May God bless us, may God bless America, and may God lead Donald Trump in his quest for…”A New America.” Oh…and Happy New Year to all If you, like I, have been trying to keep abreast of the so-called presidential transition, you must have noticed that just about every other headline or front-page news, bar none, has something to do with the democrats’ incessant war to disavow the election of Donald Trump on November 8th, as our next president. I think I have heard and seen it all. Immediately following the elections, the nation was stunned when for three days...
  • Team Clinton: This Effort To Block Trump Through The Electoral College

    12/20/2016 11:19:36 AM PST · by Kaslin · 42 replies ^ | December 20, 2016 | Matt Vespa
    The Electoral College has voted and Donald J. Trump is officially the winner of the 2016 election. Hillary Clinton’s loss to Trump was probably one of the biggest political upsets in recent memory. Yet, the efforts to block Trump through this institution provided another opportunity for desperate liberals to cling onto the notion that they could block Trump from the presidency. While the Clinton campaign, shell shocked at their loss, kept quiet about this push to block Trump within the Electoral College, after yesterday’s vote—former spokesperson Brian Fallon pretty much called it a shoddy coup attempt that has zero chance...

    Boo-freaking-hoo Hillary voters had weeks to resign themselves to their post-election reality. They didn’t do that. Instead of facing up to their loss, they played the blame game. Instead of graciously accepting the results of the election, they clung desperately to fever-dreams of an electoral upset. Their moment never came. The electoral college worked precisely as it was designed to, and the country was not held hostage by the voters of New York and California. Still, some Clinton supporters are having - shall we say - a “hard time” dealing with defeat.

    The Electoral College dealt Big Media and Democrat Hillary Clinton one more final embarrassment. With nearly all the Electoral College votes cast, the former secretary of state set a 104-year record for the candidate with the most faithless electors. If you fell for the Big Media hysteria, then you might be surprised to hear faithless electors are actually pretty common. (UPDATE: Since this article was first written, Mrs. Clinton got another faithless elector in the state of Hawaii. Her total now stands at 5.)

    Donald Trump has cruised to victory in the Electoral College despite thousands of anti-Trump protesters who converged on state capitols across the country. Monday’s vote ensures that the billionaire will become America’s 45th president. Texas put the Republican president-elect over the 270-vote threshold. Electors had been deluged with emails, phone calls and letters urging them not to support Trump. Two Texas electors cast protest votes against Trump, but in the end he had more than he needed. …

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: So today is Electoral College day. However, folks, we may not know the exact count today. The tradition here with the Electoral College is that they all gather today in their state capitols. In some states deranged lunatic leftists have actually surrounded statehouses in an attempt to prevent the electors from arriving and casting their ballots. We may not know the actual count. They don't do it all at the same time. I don't know what the procedures are, but there is not a requirement that all the electors show up at their state capitols at the...

    The New York Times ^ | 12/19/2016 | KIERSTEN SCHMIDT and WILSON ANDREWS
    The Electoral College on Monday voted for Donald J. Trump to win the presidency. Seven electors, the most ever, voted for someone other than their party’s nominee. In Washington, a state where Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont had strong support in the Democratic primary against Hillary Clinton, three of the state’s 12 electoral votes went to Colin L. Powell, the Republican former secretary of state. One more elector voted for Faith Spotted Eagle, a Native American leader. Another Democratic elector in Hawaii voted for Mr. Sanders. Two Texas electors voted for different Republican politicians: Gov. John Kasich of Ohio and...

    The Hill ^ | 12/19/16 | Ben Kamisar
    Electoral College members across the nation voted to affirm President-elect Donald Trump’s victory on Monday, as liberal attempts to sway Republican electors to abandon Trump fizzled. Republican electors stayed loyal to their candidate, keeping Trump well above the 270 electoral vote threshold needed to secure the nomination. Texas' 36 electoral votes for Trump pushed him over the edge at around 4:30 Central Time, even though two rogue electors' defections deprived Trump of one of those votes. That gave Trump 304 total electoral votes.

    The Electoral College formalized Donald Trump's election victory on Monday despite protests around the country to encourage GOP electors to abandon the Republican. The president-elect easily racked up the 270 electoral votes needed to send him to the White House. Interest in the normally mundane voting process spiked this year as opposition to Trump continues to fester, fueled by Clinton's success in capturing over 2.6 million more votes than her Republican opponent.

    Step one: Recruit a group of celebrities -- ranging from A-listers to D-listers -- to make solemn-sounding, straight-to-camera appeals in an open video addressing members of the electoral college. Step two: If that airtight plan fails to have an impact, get these self righteous Hollywood types to send personalized videos to individual electors. Step three: Deluge electors with thousands of daily emails in a frantic, last-ditch effort to sway today's vote. One of the 538 members of this powerful group from Missouri, which Trump carried by nearly nine points, has heard quite enough from these people.  Via CBS News in St. Louis: Jan, who asked us...

    Filmmaker and author Michael Moore has made an offer to Republican members of the Electoral College: If an elector does not vote for Donald Trump -- which would constitute a violation of their pledge -- and their state is one that imposes a fine for such a violation, Moore will pay it. In an open letter Sunday addressed to Republican electors on his Facebook page, Moore wrote, "Some states have made it 'illegal' for you to vote any other way than for Trump. If you don't vote for him, your state will fine you ... So here's my offer to...
