Donald Trump Wins 2016 Presidential Election thanks to Electoral College

11/9/16 DONALD J. TRUMP WAS ANNOUNCE PRESIDENT ELECT
For the 2nd time in the last 5 presidential elections, the person with the most popular votes was not elected president.

In the US election 200 million people can vote. But just 538 people – called the Electoral College – choose the President!

Superdelegates are PAC Insiders. They were created in the 70’s BY THE ELITE INSIDERS to get rid of grass roots candidates a corrupt process designed to let insiders and lobbyists overturn the will of voters.

This is literally what Trump called for in 12 when he mistakenly thought that Romney had won the popular vote.

ELECTORAL MAP

The Voters Who Gave Trump the White House

The Washington Elite that Trump was elected to throw out is now who he will bring in and surrounded himself with. Here are some of the most powerful entrenched players in the financial world — and he’s hinted that he’d appoint many of them to positions of power in his White House.   Here’s a rundown of the economic heavyweights who are poised to be influential in the Trump administration.

ANNOINTED AND APPOINTED

THE CORRUPT DNC GOT EXACTLY WHAT THEY DESERVED

Article 5, Section 4 of the DNC Charter mandates the following:

“The Chairperson shall be responsible for ensuring that the national officers and staff of the Democratic National Committee maintain impartiality and evenhandedness during the Democratic Party Presidential nominating process.”

Instead, according to more than 20,000 DNC emails exposed by Wikileaks  top DNC staffers were plotting to use Senator Bernie Sanders’ religious beliefs against him and to characterize his campaign as a mess. The suit, Wilding et al v DNC Services Corporation and Deborah ‘Debbie’ Wasserman Schultz (Case Number 16-cv-61511-WJZ) was originally filed by the law firm Beck & Lee on June 28, 2016. An amended complaint has subsequently been filed. Jared H. Beck of the law firm has indicated that over 1,000 plaintiffs have thus far signed retainer agreements with his firm in relation to the class action lawsuit.

“At rallies for the 74-year-old across the country, there was a sense of euphoria and excitement that simply did not exist at those for Ms Clinton. Ms Clinton’s supporters said they had made a calculation to vote for her as they believed she would be the best candidate to lead the country, but there was no sense of the passion witnessed at her rivals events, or those of Barack Obama eight years earlier.

“But it was not just anecdotal evidence. A series of polls suggested that Mr Sanders — with his calls for free college tuition, the removal of student debt, a national health service and the removal of big money from politics — would stand a better chance against Mr Trump than Ms Clinton.

NBC

“A poll by NBC News-Wall Street Journal on May 15 said Ms Clitnon would beat Mr Trump by three points, but said Mr Sanders would win by 15 points.

CBS

A CBS News-New York Times [poll] on May 3 gave Ms Clinton a six point advantage over Mr Trump, but said Mr Sanders would win by 13 points.”

“Sanders would have bested the business billionaire in a landslide, while Clinton was projected to lose to Trump by at least two percent, according to polls conducted in May.”

Jesse Yomtov, USA Today,

“Sanders’ popularity among white working-class voters might have been the difference in this election; voters that Trump ultimately won. Sanders defeated Clinton in both the Wisconsin and Michigan primaries, two of the states that Trump surprised in on Tuesday.”

The DNC dynasty with the money ties to Wall Street / POWER FOR THE SAKE OF POWER – do nothing for the UNIONS 15$ an hour wage earners  when Americans were exhausted with pain and their anger.

The DNC COULD HAVE DEFEATED TRUMP BUT THEY WANTED POWER FOR THE SAKE OF POWER.

Senator Bernie Sanders could have defeated Trump.
(A Federal lawsuit has been filed by Sanders’ supporters against the Democratic National Committee and its former Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, charging that they rigged the primary battle against Sanders in violation of the DNC Charter.

How this relates w/ all that sparked the 99% movement, AND Sanders

THE WORTHLESS TV TALKING HEADS AND NEWSPAPERS
@Morning_Joe @morningmika @samsteinhp @chucktodd @brithume

IF YOU EVER NEEDED PROOF THAT WATCHING  TV NEWS OR READING THE NEWSPAPER OF RECORD IS IRRELEVANT — A WASTE OF YOUR TIME THIS WAS IT!  THEY HAD NO CLUE ABOUT  THE OUTCOME OF THIS ELECTION.

Biggest loser? Data journalism.  

Technology is no good measuring populism.

 

IF YOU EVER NEEDED PROOF THAT THE PROMISE OF THE INTERNET IS FULFILLED GIVING YOU REAL KNOWLEDGE — IN REAL TIME — THEN YOU KNOW THERE WERE ACTUAL REPORTERS ON TWITTER THAT KNEW WHAT WAS HAPPENING AND INFORMED THE ELECTION PROCESS.

@SalenaZito I drove over 70,000 miles in this election cycle no planes some trains lots of shoe leather.

Biggest winner? Shoe leather journalism.

Taking Trump Seriously, Not Literally
The Republican candidate took his case to a shale-industry gathering, and found a welcoming crowd.

He didn’t fit media idea of a Trump supporter the reason they missed what was happening

The death of elitism PEOPLE STILL HOLD THE TRUMP CARD
Trump had to buy his way into the elite, because he is not one of them, said Sracic, “and that’s what people like about him. The elites hate him, all of them, on both sides of the aisle.”

AND a thousand political scientists [ EXPERTS ] were wrong.

Electoral College Can Stop Unfit Trump – With Another Republican
BY David Halperin  Attorney, advocate, writer at RepublicReport.org

<SNIP> Donald J. Trump pulled a stunning upset in Pennsylvania, becoming the first Republican presidential nominee to win there since 1988 as he swept the state’s coveted 20 electoral voters.  It was a win that put him over the finish line and made history as he became the United States’ first populist president-elect in nearly 250 years. Trump was a vehicle for the anti-elite message.

In our nation’s history, more than 99 percent of electors have voted as pledged in the Electoral College. But electors are not required to do so.  A “faithless elector“ has surfaced a number of times in our past – 157 times.  29 states bar faithless electors, so 21 states do not. Even in states where the practice is barred, the penalties can be light.  Folks, I know this is unlikely to happen.  All I am suggesting is that we are not powerless to use our constitutional system to avoid disaster.  Nearly 59 million Americans voted for Donald Trump, and many would be outraged and disappointed if he is not president. But at least at this writing, even more Americans voted for Hillary Clinton.  We have no obligation to sit back and do nothing.
