The response to the recent vote in the United Nations Security Council over Israeli settlements has caused quite an uproar, which as usual completely misses the relevant points.
Patrick Slattery and Richard Sloan broadcast the counting of the electoral votes and the attempt by Democratic Congressmen to disqualify Trump electors so they can install Colin Powell as President instead of Donald Trump. The spectacle is an illustration of the incredible danger of our current Electoral College system, which allows Congress to overturn the presidential election by simple majority votes. Just because is hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean it won’t four years from now.
