    Zero Hedge ^ | 12/09/2016
    Last week a Republican member of the Electoral College, Christopher Suprun, published an op-ed in the NYT explaining why he would not be casting his vote for Donald Trump. Suprun is the same elector who the NY Post reported one month ago that hes on track to vote as assigned for Donald Trump next month, despite reports saying hed consider going rogue and voting for Hillary Clinton. Previously, Politico had quoted Suprun in August saying he found Trump so unpalatable, hed consider going rogue and voting for Clinton. He then told the Post that he always planned to vote...

    An East Texas republican Elector called in to the Friday Rick Roberts radio show on WBAP Dallas. Rick is a lawyer and was giving a good historical review of the Electoral College. The woman elector who gave her full name said she is getting daily, hundreds of form letters and phone calls demanding she vote for Hillary. Some were even from Germany. They have never had this happen ever in 30 years. The Texas attorney general has advised them to take extra efforts and precautions for their personal and their families security. She said its clearly George Soros and his...

    Raleigh, N.C. In a formal complaint to the Durham County Board of Elections, Thomas Stark, the attorney for the North Carolina Republican Party on Saturday demanded a recount of votes cast on and before Election Day, citing a counting error involving 90,000 ballots. Thomas Stark, general counsel for the GOP and a Durham County voter, filed the protest with the Durham County Board of Elections, alleging malfeasance in regard to the accuracy of the count. In the complaint, Stark says the county used data from potentially corrupt tabulation machines from five early voting sites and one general election precinct....

    NPR ^ | November 9, 2016 | Amita Kelly & Barbara Sprunt
    On Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell mostly made nice with Trump but also shot down or expressed little enthusiasm in some of his plans. On Trump's proposal to impose term limits on Congress, McConnell said, "It will not be on the agenda in the Senate." McConnell has been a long-standing opponent of term limits, as NPR's Susan Davis reports. "I would say we have term limits now they're called elections." McConnell also threw some cold water on Trump's infrastructure plans, calling it not a top priority. McConnell did say repealing Obamacare is a "pretty high item on our...

    As I write, at one in the morning, it looks as though the Republicans will score a hat trick: the White House, Senate, and House of Representatives. Which means we are poised for an extraordinary revolution in American government, with a 100 days of legislation beginning on January 20 next in which Obamacare will be repealed and replaced, and in which we can begin to talk about major tax, immigration, and campaign reform bills. We can imagine a Supreme Court that respects our republican system of government. We can begin to drain the swamp. What that adds up to is...

    The Republican Party seized control of the Senate and moved within a few seats of capturing the House yesterday, winning eight Democratic seats in the Senate and at least 38 in the House. The gains were the Republicans' strongest in decades and put them in position to thwart President Clinton and his legislative proposals for the next two years. One after another, once unassailable Democrats like Gov. Mario M. Cuomo, Gov. Ann W. Richards of Texas, Representative Dan Rostenkowski of Chicago and Senators James Sasser of Tennessee and Harris Wofford of Pennsylvania fell to little-known Republican challengers.

    With two elections still too close to call, Democrats have lost power in three states, including traditionally blue Vermont. Going into Election Day, Republicans made up a historically large 31-18 majority of governors. (There's one independent, Alaska's Bill Walker.) In Missouri, Eric Greitens won a Democratic-held open seat to replace term-limited Jay Nixon. In Vermont, the normally blue state opted for a moderate Republican governor, Phil Scott, to replace Peter Shumlin, who chose not to run for re-election. And in New Hampshire, Republican Chris Sununu flipped the Democratic-held governorship that's currently held by Maggie Hassan, who's in a tight race...

    Republicans, who have dominated control of legislatures since the 2010 mid-term election, held the majority in 67 of the country's 98 partisan legislative chambers, while Democrats had 31 going into the election. Nebraska's single chamber is nonpartisan. In Kentucky, Republicans took over the House of Representatives for the first time since 1921... That result leaves Republicans in control of all 30 legislative chambers in the U.S. South for the first time in history, Storey said.

    More than 70 Republicans have signed an open letter to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus urging him to stop spending any money to help Donald Trump win in November and shift those contributions to Senate and House races. The letter comes as a number of Republican senators and high-profile GOP national security officials have come forward saying they cannot vote for Trump. We believe that Donald Trumps divisiveness, recklessness, incompetence, and record-breaking unpopularity risk turning this election into a Democratic landslide, and only the immediate shift of all available RNC resources to vulnerable Senate and House races will prevent...

    The names on this letter are the ones the American people should look to for answers on why the world is a mess, and we thank them for coming forward so everyone in the country knows who deserves the blame for making the world such a dangerous place. They are nothing more than the failed Washington elite looking to hold onto their power, and its time they are held accountable for their actions. These insiders along with Hillary Clinton are the owners of the disastrous decisions to invade Iraq, allow Americans to die in Benghazi, and they are...

    Call me crazy, but here is a radical idea that just might work. I always say that the "media" is the root cause of all our problems. The main stream media is how the great unwashed (with all due respect) and the low information voters, get most, if not all of their information. With the media colluding against you, winning becomes almost impossible. Since the Democrat convention, the press has gone full tilt for Hillary and against Trump. A full court press, to the ring. (sorry, couldn't help myself). Things have changed. The media is trying to take Trump OUT,...

    Vu will be on the November ballot as an elector a constitutionally mandated stand-in for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Should Trump take Georgia, Vu will be one of 16 Georgia members of the electoral college who will formally decide the U.S. presidential contest. Vu has just put out a statement saying that he cannot bring himself to vote for Trump in the November general election. And he might not vote for Trump as a member of the electoral college, either.

    Entire platform is a clarion cry to the progressive Left that we have had enough I recall a while back reading a statement attributed to John Boehner, the former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. He was reported to have said that nobody reads the party platform. That may have been the case in the past, but if this one is ignored, there will be consequences to pay (2016 Republican National Platform). After many disgusting years of Republican establishment types telling the American people one thing in its platform promises and proceeding to do other things, contrary to...

    Washington - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump today hit out at his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine, saying they "do not look presidential" as he claimed that enemies like ISIS are "drooling" over their nomination. "Just saw crooked Hillary and Tim Kaine together. ISIS and our other enemies are drooling. They don't look presidential to me!" Trump said on twitter as he posted a series of tweets wherein he described Kaine as a job killer. "Tim Kaine has been praising the Trans Pacific Partnership and has been pushing hard to get it approved. Job killer!"...

    When Ted Cruz refused to endorse Donald Trump in his Republican National Convention speech, he channeled his ideological opponent, Ted Kennedy, whose bitter primary fight with Jimmy Carter made him dodge the opportunity to raise hands with his opponent. It cost Carter the 1980 election, and might do similar damage to Trump.

    CLEVELAND, OHIOLaura Ingraham electrified the Q more than any speaker of the convention thus far. She shamed flag-burners. She hated on man buns and skinny jeans. She threw shade at Ted Cruz, implying he didn't have the stones to formally endorse Trump tonight. Ingraham, a conservative talk radio host who quite literally makes her living in media, chastised "the media" for being wrongwrong all along!about The Donald. She had the crowd roaring, even more jazzed than in the 7 o'clock hour when G.E. Smith and the house band cruised through a nifty mash-up of "My Sharona" and "Gimme Some Lovin'."...
