  • Jefferson's Attitudes Toward Slavery (real information about the person and his actions)

    Thomas Jefferson wrote that “all men are created equal,” and yet enslaved more than six-hundred people over the course of his life. Although he made some legislative attempts against slavery and at times bemoaned its existence, he also profited directly from the institution of slavery and wrote that he suspected black people to be inferior to white people in his Notes on the State of Virginia. Throughout his entire life, Thomas Jefferson was publicly a consistent opponent of slavery. Calling it a “moral depravity”1 and a “hideous blot,”2 he believed that slavery presented the greatest threat to the survival of...
  • Vandalizing Douglass Statue Defended by BLM Kook [semi-satire]

    Among the list of statues torn down during the current rage against American history was the Rochester, New York homage to Frederick Douglass. Born a slave in 1818, Douglass escaped and became one of the most eloquent opponents of slavery in America. Why was his statue torn down? It seems that Douglass' sin was arguing that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution laid the groundwork for the abolition of slavery. He called for the nation to live up to the principles of equality and liberty expressed in these documents by emancipating the slaves. Yusra Khogali, a co-founder of the...
  • Repositioning Our Constitution - (We are not right wing!)

    Epoch Times ^ | 7/9/2020 | Steven Maikoski
    To The Editor: Years ago while the Republicans slept, the Democrats replanted our Constitution on the “right wing” of political measurements. It was the greatest political move in our nation’s history, for suddenly, the Constitution was an off-center philosophy, while radical, anti-constitutional politics became the middle ground, the mainstream. Our politics have followed that map, and the respect for our Constitution has nosedived. This incredible change resulted from simply moving the point of reference, the initial point. To illustrate the power of such a simple move, try it in your accounting. If you moved the decimal point in our dollars...

    If you were ever curious and wanted to be a fly on the wall in a forum with some of the leaders of unorganized militia groups in these United States, then this is for you. There is an essay being circulated within militia circles, and I thought it was just too good not to let you peak into the Smokey Back room of what is being said, doubly so from the comments it has received. This comes from a militia leader, addressing everyone in open forum. I obtained permission to repost here. I did not edit it. It does contain...
  • 'Faithless elector': Supreme Court will hear case that could change how presidents are chosen

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court agreed Friday to take up an issue that could change a key element of the system America uses to elect its president, with a decision likely in the spring just as the campaign heats up. The answer to the question could be a decisive one: Are the electors who cast the actual Electoral College ballots for president and vice president required to follow the results of the popular vote in their states? Or are they free to vote as they wish? A decision that they are free agents could give a single elector, or a...
  • Faithless elector: A court ruling just changed how we pick our president

    MSN News ^ | August 21, 2019 | Pete Williams, NBC News
    A federal appeals court ruled late Tuesday that presidential electors who cast the actual ballots for president and vice president are free to vote as they wish and cannot be required to follow the results of the popular vote in their states. The decision could give a single elector the power to decide the outcome of a presidential election — if the popular vote results in an apparent Electoral College tie. "This issue could be a ticking time bomb in our divided politics. It's not hard to imagine how a single faithless elector, voting differently than his or her state...

    DALLAS -- The Republican elector who has gotten national attention for refusing to vote for Donald Trump at the Electoral College on Dec. 19 was apparently not a first responder on September 11, 2001 as he has stated for years and has a questionable career history, according to an investigation by WFAA. Chris Suprun, 42, portrays himself as a heroic firefighter who was among the first on the scene after the third plane flew into the Pentagon on 9/11. In a heavily-publicized editorial this month for the New York Times, Suprun stated that as a member of the Electoral College...

"This is, unfortunately, the first time I think we've needed to use it as a nation, but it's time to pull the brake," Christopher Suprun said on CNN.

    Anti-Trump faithless elector Stephen “Chris” Suprun was expelled from a Texas police academy about six years ago for plagiarism, according to an anonymous source who attended classes with him. The GotNews crack research team previously revealed that Suprun runs a fishy 9/11 charity and paid for cheating website Ashley Madison’s “affair guarantee” while bankrupt, likely unemployed, and married with 3 young kids — while his wife worked a full-time job. We also revealed inconsistencies in his 9/11 story, a thread that was picked up by Texas local news after we investigated, and went viral. The source told GotNews that they...

But the Republican National Committee, which according to Politico has been keeping tabs on its electors, has found no defectors except for Christopher Suprun, a Texas elector who has publicly announced his intention not to support Trump. ... there's little evidence that these entreaties might result in the kind of large-scale coordination that would be required to deny Trump the presidency.

One group of electors who are supposed to vote for Hillary Clinton experienced a major setback in court and one judge has reminded them that they can be replaced.

    Some in Washington and others on social media are speculating that President-elect Trump is on the cusp of a tidal wave of "faithless electors" defecting from their pledges. The notion is provocative, titillating — and has no root in reality and is nothing new. Anti-Trump forces are advancing efforts to invalidate his election in the only venue that matters: the Electoral College. The electors of the Electoral College — the people who actually choose the next president — will gather on Dec. 19 to make their choices; choices that are supposed to represent the will of the voters of the...

    Two Electors from Colorado have gone to court in order to be faithless to Hillary and the Democratic Party. Even though Colorado was declared for Hillary, these electors have stated that they will be faithless. My question for you Democrats is whether this is OK with you? And in the Future when a Democrat has won the electoral college, will it be OK for faithless electors to install a Republican President then? These Electors failed in court. How will the Democrats feel in Colorado with their votes not represented in Washington?
