"To the extent that foreign interference in the United States presidential elections may have influenced the final result, I believe the electors have the right to consider that,” Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) said in a statement to POLITICO on Saturday.

Cicilline appears to be the first member of Congress and the highest-ranking elected official in the country to endorse the notion that electors aren’t simply rubber stamps for their states’ popular vote. Earlier Saturday, he retweeted a Rhode Island-based national security expert who argued that the intelligence community “must brief electoral college about Russia before vote.”

I don't know why ATS is sleepingwalking on this issue. This could be the most important conspiracy of our lifetimes.

What is it about a possible mutiny in the Electoral College that is making ATS essentially ignore the issue? It has happened before, and history almost always repeats itself.

Concerning the state laws that people here always like to discuss concerning this issue, that aspect could be changing soon.

They are pushing for a civil war! It is the only thing that will save those in our corrupt government of being arrested and put on trial for treason.

Obama spent 8 years hoping he could kick of a race war and he came pretty damn close. There is a reason other than insanity that we are hearing these things and it isn't by accident. Time is running out for the Globalists so they are pulling out all of the stops so that society destroys itself from within by our own hands.

Think to yourself "Who wins, if our country is up in flames and anarchy reigns supreme for a period of time?". They can win the war against us by just sitting back in their fortified bunkers and watch us do their dirty work for them! Then they can just come in with troops and those left will be BEGGING to obey for some protection and a small amount of food to consume.

Ill be honest, Im ignoring it because the implications of it possibly happening are just to sickening to contemplate.

If the electoral college goes against the will of the people then all illusions that we are controlled by some nefarious behind the scenes shadow group are removed and we know that they dont give 2 #s about the peoples wishes.

What these people are looking to do isnt democracy, its a fully fledged oligarchy

Even if they have the right to be faithless, they won't actually want to be faithless.
On the whole, Republicans who have been selected as Republican electors have this weird fixation on wanting to vote for a Republican candidate.
What is it about that factor that you find so difficult to understand?
What is the point of insisting on their right, if you can't motivate them to take advantage of it?

No ,they dont have any rights ,actually . They are individual citizens of that State . For the most part not even connected to the State's government much less the Federal Government
They have the right to cast their vote for the elected . Or become faithless and cast their vote another way. Or keep their mouth shut. That is their rights.

Being a leftie I have to say this whole thing is getting ridiculous!

The left being proposed as being behind all of this, really isn't the left at all.

I don't think Globalisation is an ideology of either persuasion, yet it was born out of a left ideology, then twisted by the right.

Now we are left with something that isn't truly recognisable as being from either camp, but a third unnamed...somethng.

I haven't seen the whole vid, but enough to see that Alex Jones has a point, but I think the whole thing has tied itself up in knots, after all there was a lot of support for Bernie, my bet guess is it would have been a far fairer election had he been the Democrat candidate, perhaps might have taken it, we will never know.

I agree this is civil war territory now, very scary and I don't even live in the US, I fear bad times ahead for everyone and it is going to take a really bad event to straighten all this out.

That said we have often said we would reset, maybe this is it...but it's going to hurt.

In my perfect fantasy world the election would be re-run with Trump vs a different candidate who was true left, a second opportunity to re-affirm Trump's win, or a take a step back moment, because at this point I think we are talking less about left vs right, but more about good vs evil.

I agree that the probability is that you're right. However, one thing that I've learned about people is that they're not as predictable as what you're implying. The story linked to at the top of the original post in this thread could give anyone a reason to change their vote...if they were persuaded to do so in the right way.

Another thing that concerns me is I believe that a criminal organization may be trying to organize an Electoral College mutiny. I don't believe they're above making serious threats to get their way. Payoffs could be part of the equation too.

There could be a lot more going on behind the scenes than we could imagine.

There is a terminology problem here that is being exploited for political purposes of generating an (false) image.

Hack - Breaking and entering, then CHANGING the original contents in order to change the outcome or functionality, usually without the originators knowledge.

Leak - Possessor of information, obtained legally or illegally, intentionally disclosing that information (that is true) in order to change the outcome or functionality of the original information source.

The DNC was not hacked. The true information was leaked.

On top of Democrats and the media influencing electoral college voters, they're also getting death threats.
