The Electoral College Is Genious

 


If you think a Trump presidency is illegitimate you should probably read this and get ya some knowledge.

We hear a cacophony of blaring and bleating from the media and the Hillary gaggle that she won the popular vote and therefore she should be president, 60,839,497 to 60,265,847. 47.8% to 47,3% with the remaining 4.9% going to the other candidates.

But here is the rest of the story:

Trump won the popular vote in 31 states to her 19 and DC. 62% to her 38%.
Trump led in the total popular vote for all states except California.

Hillary won California 5,860,714 to Trump’s 3,151,821. 61.6% to 33.1% exclusive of the other candidates. Thus California alone gave Hillary the popular vote for all states as claimed by the Democrats and their media stooges.

But deduct her California vote from her national vote leaving her with 54,978,783, and deduct Trump’s California vote from his national total, leaving him with 57,113.976, he wins in a landslide in the other 49 states and D.C., 51.3% to her 48.7%.

So, in effect, Hillary was elected president of California and Trump was elected president of the rest of the country by a substantial margin.

This exemplifies the wisdom of the Electoral College, to prevent the vote of any one high-populace state from overriding the vote of the others. Trump’s Campaign Manager,
Kellyanne Conway, whose expertise is polling, saw this early on and devised her strategy of “6 pathways to the White House”.

This meant ignoring California with its huge Democrat majority and going after the states
that would give him the necessary electoral votes to win, FL, NC, MI, PA, OH, and WI.

At its lowest point since the civil war, could this mean the end of the Democrat Party? With Trump as president, the Republican Party has:

1) The Presidency.
2) A majority of the House of Representatives.
3) A majority of the Senate.
4) Almost two-thirds of all the governorships.
5) Total control of the statehouses in almost two-thirds of all the states.
And in the near future, Republicans will be able to add:
6) A majority of the Supreme Court.

The above has never happened before in American history.

Think about that and let it sink in for a moment.

And it’s all because of one reason: Barack Obama’s forcing his extreme far-left agenda on a largely unwilling country by executive orders, left wing judges, and obsequious bureaucrats.

It’s important to pass this on. With the demand that we do away with the Electoral College and take the popular vote being pushed by the media, etc, all Americans need to know that the Electoral College is working exactly as our Founding Fathers intended. By the way, that pathetic ad with actors trying to influence the EC to reject Trump saying that the reason for the EC is to prevent a demagogue from taking power was 99.9% wrong.

For excellent, short, explanations of the E.C., put together months before the election:

Why Can’t These Crooks Just Go Away?

 

Since losing the most winnable presidential election in modern American history, Hillary Clinton has, among other things: given a series of high-profile speeches, joined Gov. Cuomo at his public unveiling of tuition-free college, refused to rule out a run for mayor of New York and issued an online video message exhorting fellow Democrats to fight on in her name.

“The challenges we face,” she said, “as a country and a party, are real.”

Clearly, Hillary still sees herself as the leader of the Democratic Party. And why shouldn’t she? Democrats have been locked in an abusive relationship with the Clintons for decades, enabling, explaining, convincing themselves that next time will be different. Party faithful hew to Hillary’s excuses for losing to Donald Trump: It’s James Comey’s fault, plus the Russians, white supremacists, misogynists, the deplorables and immobilized millennials, among other things.

Her losses in 2008 and 2016 have been framed as things that happened to Hillary — not one, but two Black Swan events that stymied her historic destiny.

How is it that Democrats have fealty here, let alone sympathy? How is it that Hillary routinely walks into standing ovations at Broadway theaters? Where is the realization that Hillary is to blame or the rational rejection of a two-time loser?

Any debate about what happened last November ends with Tuesday’s publication of “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.” Journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes spent the past two years talking to Hillary’s most trusted advisers, and what emerges is damning.

‘Height of Hypocrisy’: Obama Called Out for Planned Big-Money Speech to Wall St. Firm

Cavuto held up copies of the New York Times, Washington Post and USA Today, noting there was no story in any of the publications of this article following Gasparino’s report the day before.

Former President Barack Obama reportedly agreed to give a lucrative speech to Wall Street firm Cantor Fitzgerald LP.

But many are now pointing back to the 44th president’s harsh criticism of the financial industry, including calling Wall Street bankers “fat cats.”

Fox Business Network’s Charlie Gasparino broke the story, reporting that Obama’s speaking fee will be $400,000, nearly twice as much as Hillary Clinton received for similar appearances.

Gasparino said Obama has agreed to be the keynote speaker on health care at an event in September.

A spokesman for the former president didn’t return a call for comment; a spokeswoman for Cantor said the firm is not in a position to comment just yet, but would not deny that Obama has agreed to speak to the firm and at the $400,000 fee, he reported.

On “Fox & Friends,” Kristin Tate, author of “Government Gone Wild,” said the speech would be the “height of hypocrisy” after his harsh criticism of Wall Street.

“It’s all about personal gain for Obama,” she said, adding it’s not surprising for a politician to “cash out” after they’re out of office.

“But Democrats end up looking more hypocritical than Republicans because it’s the Democrats who constantly rail against greedy, rich bankers and rich business people,” said Tate.

On “Your World,” Gasparino and Neil Cavuto both questioned why the mainstream media isn’t focusing on this story.
