There Is No National Popular Vote

The left is continuing its assault on freedom by whining about the last election. Today the electors will convene in each state capitol and cast their votes and when all is said and done Donald Trump will officially be the next president of the US. The electors selected to do this have been harassed non stop by the left because they do not want Trump in there and are fighting to make that so.

They are also convinced that the electoral college system is outdated and cost Hillary the election. They believe the winner of the national popular vote should be the president. The way it is now is no democracy, they say.

First of all we are not a democracy. Second of all and just as important is that Hillary Clinton DID NOT win the national popular vote because we DO NOT have a national election. A national popular vote insinuates that there is one great big nationwide election and that Hillary won that but we do not have such an election.

We have 51 individual elections (each state and DC). The winner of each individual election in each individual state gets the electoral votes for that state (usually winner take all but different in a few states).

So Donald Trump won the popular vote in enough states to get more than the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidential election. Hillary Clinton did not win the popular vote in enough states to become president.

The idea that she won the national popular vote is based on adding the totals of all 51 INDIVIDUAL elections and then declaring her the winner. Since we do not have a national election the total for all the states does not matter. The electoral college is in place to prevent a scenario where a heavily populated part of the nation could determine the outcome of an election even if the rest of the nation wanted otherwise just as it did in this case.

Hillary Clinton won by a huge margin in California so much so that it gave her the advantage in the total of all 51 elections. If California were removed from the totals then Trump has the highest vote total of the remaining 49 states and DC. In other words, if we had a national election (the democracy the left wants) then California would get to decide the president even though the other 49 states and DC combined wanted Trump.

By using the electoral system we ensure that all states have a say in the matter

The reality, whether they want to face it or not, is that Hillary did not win the national popular vote because we do not have a national election.

That should settle the debate once and for all but it will not because liberals are like little children who throw tantrums until they get what they want.

If only we could get them to hold their breath until there is a change…

Barack Obama Is A Sexist

In a speech while campaigning for Hillary Clinton (instead of doing his actual job), Barack Obama presented a thinly veiled message that men who do not vote for Hillary are sexists. He did not come right out and say that. No, instead he said we have not had a woman president and I think you guys know why.

If Obama thinks men who do not vote for Hillary are sexist then he is a sexist.

Remember, Obama ran against her in 2008 so he did not vote for her. He blocked her from getting into office. Let’s face it, if she had been the nominee then she probably would have beaten McCain. At least she would have had a good chance since this was BES (Before Email Scandal).

Funny though, Obama challenged her and beat her thus denying her the chance to become president. He must be, by his own definition, a sexist. He is already, by his own definition, unpatriotic.

Obama also did not mind beating McCain and his running mate, a woman, so he is a double sexist because we have never had a female VP either.

It is also important to note that all the things Obama is saying about Hillary and why she is so great are the exact opposite of the things he said about her when she was his opponent. He told us she was not qualified to be president. Now he says she is more qualified than he or Bill Clinton ever were.

In other words folks, not only is Obama unpatriotic and a sexist, he is also a lying sack of feces.

I also pose this question. When Obama ran any opposition to him was considered racist because he is black. He is out there opposing Trump and insulting him. Since Trump is white does that make Obama the racist?

The Zero At Ground Zero

By now nearly everyone knows that Hillary Clinton suffered a medical event on 9/11. The “official” report was dehydration (one that has been used a lot) and later pneumonia (a report of a diagnosis that had been made last Friday but withheld from the media and the public). Hillary took a nosedive on her way out and appeared to be suffering from more than dehydration or the effects of pneumonia. Perhaps this video cuts through the BS and gets to the real issue:

Hillary is very sick and her problems are not just dehydration or pneumonia. She has some serious issues going on and there is no way she is fit to be president of this country.

I do think that given how she ignored those brave souls in Benghazi and that her episode took place on 9/11 she should have had to wait 13 hours before getting any help…

Hillary Agrees With Trump

She might be saying different things NOW but Hillary gave a speech in 2006 at the Council on Foreign Relations and she was saying a lot of the things trump has said. You know, Mexico is a problem, Mexican government encouraging people to come illegally, need a barrier (a wall is a barrier), secure the border, and those kinds of things.

You know, the things she is NOW attacking Trump for saying.

She changes her positions all the time. Perhaps it is more accurate to say she says whatever she thinks people want to hear in order to get their votes.

She is Satan. And she appears ill.

The Plame Game

Remember back during the G W Bush Administration when some obscure CIA agent named Valerie Plame had her cover blown by Scooter Libby? Remember all the uproar from the left and the demands that Libby be frog marched in chains for disclosing the fact that Plame was a covert agent?

It matters little that the entire deal was a hit on Libby. It is known that Richard Armitage leaked the info and that the special prosecutor knew it but told him to remain silent about it. It is also true one could call the CIA and ask to be connected to Plame and they would ring you through.

But politics needed to be played and the left was all giddy as it dreamed of Libby in jail for disclosing the identity of a covert operative.

I wonder how these very liberals feel today knowing that Hillary Clinton’s home brew server set up put CIA agents at risk. I wonder if they care that the covers of these folks and the nature of operations might have been compromised as a result of Hillary’s decision to break the law and run a server at home all the while allowing classified information to run through it so prying eyes from around the world could hack into it.

Yes, Hillary might be responsible for this data leak as well but will the liberals hold her accountable? Will a special prosecutor be put into place to indict her on charges of disclosing the secret identities of spies in addition to the other crimes she has committed?

You know better. The left does not care about the law or this nation (unless the laws can be used to go after conservatives). It only cares about power and the toadies who support the left only care about getting “free” stuff.

Hillary could cut the head off a newborn baby and drink its blood and the left would still support her. This little wrinkle will not stop her because the left does not hold its own accountable.

Remember, to these people the ends justify the means so what Hillary did was A-OK.

It would be nice to see her frog marched out of DC and locked away for her crimes but not until Obama is out of office.

We don’t want him to pardon her…
