They've gotten their way so often, by whining, crying, shaming and let's not forget the all time favorite "racist", they think all they have to do is whine a little more, basically saying "Well, we expected to win, so you should just let us have it", that they have no idea how to face the fact that They Lost. Hillary went on and on about Trump not accepting the results, but now they are trying to strongarm the Electors and the American people, into giving them the most powerful position on the planet.
Cause they deserve it ya know.

Actually, this time msm got the thing right. We are in deep trouble. Our hope at the moment is electoral college. I always knew Trump was a con artist. You just can't skip him in the business major. He is titled as one of the criminal entrepreneurs. Earlier, I thought he would use his presidency to rob the treasury department.

But my latest finding has confirmed that he is on his way to slaughtering our country.

Here is the Russian strategy to destabilize United States for their Eurasian Project:

"Russia should use its special forces within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism. For instance, provoke "Afro-American racists". Russia should "introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics." -The Foundations of Geopolitics: The Geopolitical Future of Russia (their military textbook).

From wiki:The book declares that "the battle for the world rule of [ethnic] Russians" has not ended and Russia remains "the staging area of a new anti-bourgeois, anti-American revolution." The Eurasian Empire will be constructed "on the fundamental principle of the common enemy: the rejection of Atlanticism, strategic control of the USA, and the refusal to allow liberal values to dominate us."[1]

Military operations play relatively little role. The textbook believes in a sophisticated program of subversion, destabilization, and disinformation spearheaded by the Russian special services. The operations should be assisted by a tough, hard-headed utilization of Russia's gas, oil, and natural resources to bully and pressure other countries.[1]

The book states that "the maximum task [of the future] is the 'Finlandization' of all of Europe".[1]

Evaluate what the book says above by looking at these solid occurrences:
1. Trump's attack on minorities
2. His attack on first amendment, the exact thing Putin hates the most
3. Telling people to be not politically correct
4. Sudden rise in hate crimes from all sides which he isn't even looking to solve
5. White supremacists trying to make themselves mainstream
6. His cabinet of villains with Russian ties
7. His consistent love for Putin while flip flopping on all other matters
8. Russian trolls helping him on Twitter
9. Daily stormer has declared that psychological hate crimes will be escalated after his inauguration
10. Big states already preparing to prevent Trump's policies
11. Even the locals from Russia on Twitter were making fun of our election saying Putin elected Trump

Putin knows quite well that the moment our diversity is shaken we will start going downhill. It is difficult for citizens to work together if they can't trust one another. The situation is tremendously bad. I talked to several people of color and it seems that alt right has been doing an excellent job of stereotyping whites. Meanwhile, some Trump supporters are being kicked out by their normal white employers. The Jews people I know are transferring their finance to foreign locations. They are also thinking about moving out.

I had a feeling before the election that as a president Trump will go after home owners. Foreclosing is actually good for his business. I still don't know if that's gonna come true, but Steven mnuchin is definitely not a good news.

Bottom line is that Trump is a huge threat to the well-being of our country. It is not a matter of conservative and liberal anymore. But why would Trump become a puppet for Putin? It is possible that he is already compromised. The guy has a habit of attracting lawsuits and bankruptcies. He scammed people several times.

Washington Post is The Onion on steroids, I look to them for inspiration on how-to-propaganda


Well posted.

Wow so if you believe all that then how do you even leave the house. You sir, should be in a bunker!

Russian fear porn is pretty futile considering so much of it is provided by globalists to stir up a boogeyman.

"Provoking Afro-American racists"?! That's the MSM and Soro's job. Might as well blame it on Russia.

The electoral college does need to be looked at. But both parties had the same goal. To win the electoral votes. When you look at Illinois for example. Is it really representative of the people of the state when practically the whole land mass of Illinois goes red for Trump and the votes go to Hillary because of Chicago? Look at the breakdown of counties in each state and you can see that the people voted for Trump. Trump almost lost Florida. But when you look at the landmass, it was a landslide. The electoral college caters to the large metro areas.

Guess what happens if this happens.

Almost no one votes the next election. It will truly be rigged.

This will set a precedent. Political Candidates exchange even more favors and money to get electors to their positions. Only the most establishment candidates get a shot. A precedent that will pack electors with deep state electors.
Bernie Sanders type candidates will NEVER have a chance if they pulled this off.
This is what will happen

I don't know what kind of unrest will start monday if this happened. It would be bad.

With 538 electors, it would make our elections a whole lot cheaper. We can skip the multi-year campaigns and media bombardment. That number conveniently fits most conference center hotels.

Yay! Progress.

Given that the winning party in each state picks the electors for the position, any dissent would clearly signal a rigged, duplicitous system. I could understand the potential of a change if the country picked the electors , but they don't.

Why, yes...

Let us just ignore the results of the election and choose whomever the hell we feel like.

Hail, Caesar.

With the electoral college playing the roll of the Praetorian Guard. Sweet!!


Just one small correction.

It's "Hail Hydra".

Really the General Election would make more sense if it was to pick the slate of electors as opposed to the President. Then they could go and decide on behalf of the people.

Say what you want about the Washington post. This quote is something no one should ignore. Because it doesnt even come from the post itself. And im not advocating one way or another


Moreover, one passage from Federalist 68 seems eerily relevant to the present circumstance. Hamilton wrote that the electors could be a barrier against “the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” Hamilton asked: “How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union?”

Ever noticed that the ideology of globalists is a norm in Russia?




That's the MSM and Soro's job.

Proves exactly what I posted earlier. We are losing trust on each other.

We don't need Russian influence to see the obvious flaws in our MSM. Do you recall the Iraq invasion?
Ebola?
Anthrax?
The media's refusal to cover the Dakota pipeline protest for months until it became impossible to ignore?
And countless other events that they twisted.

If you wanna blame Russia for our distrust in the mainstream media I think you've been fooled.

There will be no intelligence briefing for the EC. More than likely because there's is no evidence.
