Still Not Over: Two Electors Launch Effort To “Flip the Electoral College” And Block Trump’s Win

trump-winning

OK, theoretically, everything will go according to plan, and Donald Trump will be the next president.

But technically, the (s)election hasn’t really taken place yet.

Presidential electors of the mystified electoral college must still actually vote for the president, and there isn’t anything to keep them from ‘voting their conscience’ and choosing someone other than Donald Trump.

Moreover, it appears that there is an active effort to flip the electoral college to deny Trump the presidency, and toss the White House to either Hillary or a GOP loyalist.

The #NeverTrump crowd and plenty of bitter Hillary supporters are still hoping for a coup, though even they admit it is a long shot – completely unprecedented and anything but likely.

According to the Blaze:

Donald Trump may have won the electoral votes necessary to win the White House, but he he’s likely going to lose the popular vote to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. And now two electors have launched a last-minute effort to convince their colleagues to abandon the president-elect.

“This is a long shot. It’s a hail Mary,” Bret Chiafolo, a Washington state elector who previously pledged not to vote for Clinton, told Politico Monday. “However, I do see situations where — when we’ve already had two or three [Republican] electors state publicly they didn’t want to vote for Trump. How many of them have real issues with Donald Trump in private?”

Chiafolo along with Colorado elector Micheal Baca have launched what they call a “moral electors” movement in hopes of convincing 37 of their Republican colleagues to deny Trump their votes. Should they succeed in their radical effort, the presidential decision would be thrown to the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.

[…]

The Electoral College consists of 538 members who are expected to convene in their respective state capitals on Dec. 19 to formally vote for the next president… Baca said he hopes the move launches a serious national discussion about abolishing the Electoral College, which would require either a constitutional amendment or legislation in several states.

The speculation is that if this maneuver were to be successful, the GOP-led Congress could be persuaded not to choose Hillary, but to write-in a selection for a party loyalist – like Mitt Romney or John Kasich… maybe even a Bush.

Of course, there have also been reports that Team Hillary has been hard at work attempting to persuade electors to switch their votes in the hope, however desperate, that they can still flip the election and take the White House:

On December 19, the Electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win. However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine – which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!

We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states’ votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton. Why? Mr. Trump is unfit to serve.

The larger issue here is that the system is badly broken, the people are harshly divided along demographic and political lines, and the future is gambling on extreme versions of itself – larger than life candidates, and bizarre back-door maneuvers in attempt to hack the system and bend it in one direction or another.

Trump has taken his place on the stage in a thunderous revolt of the people, but his legacy will be tested out the gates by the heavy pressures of Washington lobbyists, intrigue on the part of political insiders and the cults of opposition that are springing up in response to his controversial journey to the White House.

The entire political establishment have been knocked off their perch, though their hold on power has not necessarily been loosened.

A whole new era is born, and it remains to be seen how it will play out.

  1. yes, it’s NOT OVER until Trump boots o’bama out.

    Does anybody think that Soros has given up on the o’bama/soros dream to “fundamentally change the US” (destroy the US)?

    Stay vigilant!

  2. Further evifence that idiot lefturd liberals or rinos are NOT intelligent enough to EVER be in control AGAIN!
    These cretins REALLY ‘CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH’!!

  3. Is it any wonder that POTUS Trump still remains in hopeful status? Just the idea that
    he must wait until December 19, 2016 for the 538 Electors to remain committed to
    what the citizens of the United States desire, what with, I do not believe that Hillary
    Rotten Clinton, won the Popular Vote, because the Absentee Ballots were never
    counted. Therefore, just to ensure that the people’s desires do not somehow become
    tossed down the Democrat Party drain, a select committee should be formed to deter-
    mine the truth in a half-assed proclamation that Hillary Rotten Clinton, indeed won the
    POPULAR VOTE, just to make herself and the Democrats, in accordance with “POLITI-
    CAL CORRECTNESS,” feel good about themselves, which in essence, in accordance
    with the policies of this worthless Black turd of a Muslim POTUS from Kenya, that
    mediocracy is more qualified than meritocracy, as has been the case for the past 8 effn
    years under the dictatorship of this worthless Black turd of a dictator.
