Want to know why the left wants illegals by the boatload? Electors are apportioned by population

The Meeting of the Electors is scheduled for Monday, December 19, 2016

Distribution of Electoral Votes

Electoral votes are allocated among the states based on the Census. Every state is allocated a number of votes equal to the number of senators and representatives in its U.S. Congressional delegation—two votes for its senators in the U.S. Senate plus a number of votes equal to the number of its members in the U. S. House of Representatives. 
Under the 23rd Amendment of the Constitution, the District of Columbia is allocated three electors and treated like a state for purposes of the Electoral College. 
The allocations below are based on the 2010 Census. They are effective for the 2012, 2016, and 2020 presidential elections. 
Total Electoral Votes:  538;   Majority Needed to Elect:  270

Duct tape time: Obama Links Jihad To Global Warming And Second Amendment. An ideologue whose rigidity permits no reason

Obama Links Jihad To Global Warming And Second Amendment

President Barack Obama linked “climate change” and the Second Amendment to the threat of Islamic terrorism - which he described as “violent extremism” - during a Tuesday address at Macdill Air Force Base in Tampa, FL.
Obama claimed that Islamic terrorism was partly driven by food and water scarcity brought about by anthropogenic global warming. “A changing climate is increasing competition for food and water," he said of Syria and other Muslim-majority and conflict-ridden failed states.
The Second Amendment - or at least its current interpretation by the Supreme Court and Congress - also facilitated Islamic terrorists’ designs by supposedly making it easier for them to procure firearms, said Obama. "Somebody who is trying to kill and willing to be killed is dangerous, particularly when we live in a country where it’s very easy for that person to buy a very powerful weapon," he said.
Free speech and expression online, Obama continued was also a driver of Islamic terrorism by preying on what he described as “impressionable minds." "We’ve worked with our tech sector to support efforts to push back on terrorist messages on social media that motivate people to kill," he said, adding that counterterrorism operations against Islamic terrorism must include Islamic counternarratives in order to undermine “ISIL’s perversion of Islam.”
Obama maintained his refusal to acknowledge the overlaps between Islamic terrorism, Islam and Muslims. Social, cultural and religious pathologies affecting Muslims in relation to Islamic terrorism were also ignored. In compartmentalizing the broader phenomenon of Islamic terrorism into its component groups and “homegrown and largely isolated individuals,” the president deliberately avoided the unifying threads between these groups and individuals with respect to Islamic terrorism.
Obama implied that his detractors, presumably including President-elect Donald Trump, lack sufficient rhetorical nuance in describing the nature of Islamic terrorism. He implied that his critics conflate all Muslims with Islamic terrorists:
“We are fighting terrorists who claim to fight on behalf of Islam. But they do not speak for over a billion Muslims around the world, and they do not speak for American Muslims including many who wear the uniform of the United States of America’s military. If we stigmatize good patriotic Muslims, that just feeds the terrorists’ narrative. It fuels the same false grievances they they use to motivate people to kill. If we act like this is a war between the United States and Islam, we’re not gonna lose more Americans to terrorist attacks, but we’ll also lose the sight of the very principles we claim to defend.”
 The rise of ISIS, said Obama, was unrelated to his decisions in withdrawing most US forces from Iraq shortly after assuming the presidency:
“By 2011, Iraqis wanted our military presence to end, and they were unwilling to sign a new status of forces agreement to protect our troops from prosecution if they were trying to defend themselves in Iraq. In addition, maintaining American troops in Iraq at the time could not have reversed the forces that contributed to ISIL’s rise.”
Indirectly pointing to George W. Bush, Obama credited his predecessor’s foreign policy decisions with facilitating ISIS’s rise. “Some of the mistakes of the 2003 invasion that have helped to give rise to the organization that became ISIL in the first place," he said.
Obama cautioned Americans against expecting a "clearly defined victory" against Islamic terrorists (a claim he first made in 2009):

"We will not achieve the type of clearly defined victory comparable to those that we’ve won in previous wars against nations. We won’t have a scene of the emperor of Japan and Douglas Arthur in a surrender."

Wisconsin recount: Trump gains 146 votes. More proof the left lives in fake news-land. Haven't heard this in the news yet.

Wisconsin recount is working well for someone after all: Results so far show TRUMP was under-counted



  • Badger State recount has widened Donald Trump's lead over Hillary Clinton by 146 votes 

  • Green Party candidate Jill Stein forced the recount, along with similar efforts in Michigan and Pennsylvania

  • Despite demanding recounts only in swing states where Clinton lost narrowly, Stein insists she only wants to verify the reliability of the results 

  • She has suggested, with no evidence, that votes were susceptible to hacking

  • Stein was heckled loudly on Monday and called a 'common criminal' as she held a press conference outside Trump Tower in New York City


The Green Party-led presidential election recount in Wisconsin has turned up a surprising result: Donald Trump, not Hillary Clinton, was short-changed on November 8.
Trump prevailed in the Badger State by 22,871 votes. The ongoing recount has widened his margin by 146 so far.
Just 23 of Wisconsin's 72 counties have completed their second go-round, but the president-elect has gained 105 votes. Clinton has lost 41.

The other 49 counties have until Dec. 12 to finish their recounts so state officials can certify the result by Dec. 13. That would guarantee that Wisconsin's Electoral College votes will count when the presidential election is officially conducted in Washington on Dec. 19.
Green Party candidate Jill Stein paid $3.5 million to finance the recount despite winning just 1 per cent of the vote.
'We're not finding any problems with the machines,' Reid Magney, a Wisconsin Elections Commission spokesman, told FoxNews.com on Wednesday.
'The Stein campaign wanted a recount because they thought there was some problems with our machines and that was not the case,' he said.

The Wisconsin recount began last Thursday, and has uncovered a handful of tiny errors – none of which could swing the statewide election in Clinton's favor.
'The overall results will not change,' Magney said. 'It's two votes here, two votes there.'
Recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan are tied up in court.
Michigan officials began a hand-recount on Monday but it will take a judge's ruling to continue it. That hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
The Michigan Court of Appeals has ordered state elections officials to toss out Stein's recount petition, ruling that she has no standing as an 'aggrieved' party since she has no chance of winning.
Trump won Michigan by about 10,700 votes. 
Stein was heckled and called a 'common criminal' during a news conference outside Trump Tower on Monday.
Despite demanding recounts only in swing states where Clinton lost narrowly, Stein insists she only wants to verify the reliability of the results; she also insists voting machines could have been hacked by Russians

Despite initiating recounts only in three swing states where Trump beat Clinton by narrow margins, she has insisted her only goal is to verify the accuracy of the vote-counting.
Stein has suggested, with no evidence, that electronic touch-screen voting was susceptible to computer hacking.
'Let every vote count. That's what makes America great,' Stein said Monday outside Trump Tower in New York, where she was repeatedly interrupted by shouts of protest.

Longtime University of Texas-Austin ethics professor Daniel Bonevac recently had to cancel a class he’s taught for more than 30 years — and it’s all because of PC culture.
Bonevac, who recently spoke with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, told the host that he taught Contemporary Moral Problems for more than three decades but had to end the class because of the modern academic environment — one that’s filled with “safe spaces” and political correctness.
The professor explained Monday that during discussions in the class, his students would debate the best arguments for and against an issue, addressing many sensitive topics in a politically balanced way. But it wasn’t necessarily his students who stifled the discussions but rather people “outside the class” who didn’t want the discussions to happen at all.
“It’s a disturbing thing,” Bonevac explained. “John Staurt Mill said a long time ago that if you never encounter ideas that are counter to yours, then you really lose a sense of the argument supporting your own position.”
“The truth becomes a dead dogma,” he added. “And I think we’re in serious danger of that.”
Bonevac even explained that recently, toward the end of one semester, a student who he had never seen before stood up in the back of the class and went on a PC “diatribe” about how unfair his class was. That, along with other incidents, forced to him to cancel the class as he has often been unable to keep control of the situation in recent years.

The facts about the Dakota pipeline


Just the facts on the Dakota Access Pipeline






Dana Loesch gives us the ‘facts for dummies’ on the Dakota Access Pipeline. The pipeline’s placement is nowhere near sacred burial sites, the water supply or even their property. Dana states that the Washington Post clarifies, “It’s correct the Dakota Access Pipeline would not be built on reservation land” and it follows the northern border pipeline which was built over 30 years ago. She goes on to show the back and forth between the tribes in the surrounding area and the government over the construction of the pipeline.
“It’s nowhere near their land and secondly it’s being built legit over an existing pipeline,” Dana reports. “Number two, there is no impact to the environment as deduced by over 400 consultations and a litany of environmental bureaucratic agencies.”
