That’s all we need, 37 Electors who realize Trump is a madman and simply cannot be our next President. Madman is NOT an exaggeration. He lied and cheated his way to “victory”, even inviting Russian leader Putin to hack Hillary. He knew! But, YOU #EsteemedElectors can put a stop to it!
The Electoral College is not just a formality this year! The Electors are coming into power, asking for intel briefings and planning to deliberate. GREAT! Thankfully the media (actual TV networks and prominent newspapers) are covering this. I posted my “Open Letter to Electors” (my official plea about the #EmolumentsClause) and this twitter moment with the NY Times story about the cyber hacks:
Given the Russian Hacking we are truly in a Constitutional Crisis! There are bipartisan calls for a Congressional Investigation. I posted Senator McCain coming down the escalator to SAVE US from the last guy who took us on a similar ride. McCain and even Leader McConnell (along with many other Republicans) are ready to come back to DC and begin the investigation into Russian influence on our election and political process. It’s a tremendous threat to our nation. AND, so is Trump! He’s violating the Emoluments Clause of our Constitution and now the Federal GSA (Government Services Administration) confirms he’s in violation of his contract to run the Washington Trump Hotel (the “Old Post Office” on Federal land) and be President. Electors, PLEASE. Don’t let him play you… stop him. It’s all up to YOU!
OUR fate is in the hands of the Electoral College. 306 – 37 = 269 and Trump is no longer the “winner” of the E.C. which requires 270 votes.
I have shared my Open Letter to Electors on the DailyKos, Twitter, #HamiltonElectors, AsktheElectors site, and even Fbook (where puppies and peeps rule.) Seriously, this is our only hope. If you care about our country, PLEASE focus on this issue every day until the Electors vote!!!
If you know any of the Republican Electors (especially in states like Florida, NY, CA) that can be persuaded to save the planet and life as we know it, PLEASE contact them. You can use my logic (about financial violations and UN-constitutional foreign influences) or any other way to reason with them. We only have a few days left, but the possibility is more promising than ever. It’s a HOT trending topic!
My last post was too rambling. Let me get right to the point. We have ONE last chance to #StopTrump. That is NOW before the Electoral College takes its final vote December 19. Why? Trump is in violation of the Emoluments Clause of the US Constitution.
“No Person holding any Office… shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind… from a foreign State.”
It is crystal clear that Trump would be in violation of this Constitutional clause the moment he takes the Oath given his debt to foreign nations and undisclosed business dealings in over 25 foreign countries. Trump boasts that he “can’t have a conflict of interest” BUT Harvard professors and the former Bush administration ethics attorney claim he will be in violation of the Emoluments Clause IF he takes the Oath of Office.
Therefore, no Elector– not even “Republican loyalists”– can vote for someone whose election is a violation of the Constitution!
Seems to me that the Electors should go with the popular vote and the candidate who has been CLEARED of all wrong-doing! But, that’s for them to wrestle…what they cannot do is elect Trump!
Trump is NOT the “President-Elect.” The election has not been “certified” as some Trump surrogates claim. News organizations should NOT call him “President-Elect.” The Electoral College vote is set for December 19.
Trump claims he will reveal on Dec 15 how he “plans” to “divest” himself of his business holdings. But, we have no idea what he will actually do, and after Dec 19 it will be TOO late. The Time is NOW to #StopTrump and protect our Constitutional rights.
Tump has also PLEDGED to destroy our First Amendment rights. He’s threatened Free Speech, the media, and especially print newspapers claiming he will “open up” libel laws in the United States so he can sue news organizations. Just as importantly, he has openly threatened our religious freedom with claims of banning Muslims and has openly expressed his desire to make this a “Christian Country again.” America was NEVER a “Christian” country! The original revolt from England had everything to do with FREEDOM to speak, worship in our own way, and to avoid oppression.
The Founding Fathers and framers of the Constitution were careful to protect our “inalienable rights” which include equality for ALL Americans, no restrictions on religious freedom or upon speech. Trump continues to threaten our rights and freedom. His choices for various cabinet and “at will” positions makes it clear he intends to repeal or restrict Civil Rights and social programs. He only seems concerned with protecting Amendment “two”, as he might call it, and doesn’t truly understand even that one.
So if you CARE about your rights and future, you MUST lobby the Electors of your state– particularly Republicans who think they are bound to Trump. They are bound to the Constitution!
Below are more resources and detailed information, but the easiest way to locate members of the Electoral College for your state is to simply contact your Secretary of State’s Office.
“A demagogue is a tyrant who owes his initial rise to the democratic support of the masses. Huey Long, Hugo Chavez, and Moqtada al-Sadr are all clear examples of this dangerous byproduct of democracy. This compelling narrative (by Michael Signer) weaves stories about some of history’s most notorious figures, including Adolf Hitler, Senator Joe McCarthy, and General Douglas Macarthur, and explains how humanity’s urge for liberty can give rise to dark forces that threaten that very freedom.”
