The White House is ours.
Tired of winning yet?
Republican electors in Texas vaulted Mr. Trump past the 270 mark, granting him all but two of their 38 ballots in a ceremony in the State Capitol in Austin.
In the House chamber, where the electors met, the vote was greeted with a standing ovation by citizens and Republican officials who had come to witness the event. Outside, perhaps 100 protesters waved placards and chanted “Save our democracy” in a vain effort to persuade electors to reject the Republican nominee.
Our enemies are so demoralized, they can’t even muster the strength to whine anymore. Perhaps they’ve come to accept their inevitable fate as they ease into their new role as punching bags for Republican bullies.
This man is your friend. He fights against the Jews.
Normally a political footnote, the electoral vote acquired an unexpected element of drama this winter after Mr. Trump’s upset of Hillary Clinton, who received 2.86 million more popular votes but won in states that totaled only 232 electoral votes. The states Mr. Trump won held 306 electoral votes.
His electoral victory spawned a determined effort to block his path to the presidency by grass-roots advocates who saw him as unfit for the White House and by some who saw him as a threat to the political system.
Oh, he’s definitely a threat to the political system. That’s precisely why the people voted him in. And that’s also why “grassroots advocates” like John McCain and George Soros are so desperate to stop him.
Presidential electors — and particularly Republican electors, who are bound by tradition and often state law to support Mr. Trump — were inundated with phone calls, emails and even threats demanding that they vote for someone else. Leaders of groups that were lobbying the electors had privately believed they had a chance to persuade enough Republican electors to defect, denying him an Electoral College majority and throwing the election to the House of Representatives. But by late Monday, only a handful of electors had broken ranks.
Your first little plot to stop Trump has failed.
The only thing which could be done, at this point, would be to annul the election by executive order. In other words, stage a coup. But since pretty much everyone who owns a gun supports Trump, including large parts of the military and the police, that wouldn’t exactly be a wise idea.
Either way, it’s going to be an interesting 31 days.
We did it! Thank you to all of my great supporters, we just officially won the election (despite all of the distorted and inaccurate media).
