    “But California is the exception that proves the true genius of the Electoral College — which was designed to prevent regional candidates from dominating national elections.”

    Thanks to SRAZ for keeping us informed.

    I read last week that the “faithless elector” in Texas, Mr. Suprun, has for years bragged about being a first responder on 9-11-01.
    He was not. Mr. Suprun later, and for a short time, was a fireman in Virginia, but he was Not part of the rescue effort at the Pentagon, as he has claimed on social media. Mr. Suprun is Dem-good at telling lies.

    Meanwhile——Today a Russian ambassador has been assassinated while giving a speech at an art gallery in Ankara, Turkey. The gunman was allegedly wearing police identification and shouted something about revenge for Aleppo.

    Perhaps Obama will have to take a security briefing on the golf course in Hawaii today. He and Michelle hosted a group of friends on a tour of a botanical garden yesterday, ruining the day for tourists and anyone stuck in motorcade traffic. It must have been a lovely place—-they only stayed for 20 minutes.

      Expect nothing from Barack Obama and his ever so charming wife who says “hope is gone” in America with the election of Donald Trump, and you’ll never be disappointed.

      Thanks for the background information on Suprun. I wonder why he wasn’t vetted more carefully.

      Here in Arizona we have RINO Jane Lynch, who I trust as far as I can throw my house. She announced that she would not give her personal vote to Trump on election day. She’s a longstanding McCainiac. Remember he withdrew his ifffy support from Donald Trump. Jeff Flake never gave his so was unable to withdraw it. These people supposedly “represent ” us. They both disgust me and so do those ill informed voters who keep putting them back in office.

    This is a correction to my post, above.
    breitbart is identifying Texas elector Chris Supron as a (R).
    D or R or whatever, he’s a rat.

    Meanwhile, please, if you so inclined, please pray for God to protect our citizens at home and abroad. The world is on fire.

      From the posts and comments I see here, I would bet most of us are inclined to pray. Thanks for the reminder at this time, above all others. Our country is divided as I have never seen in my lifetime. That’s what our first half black president bequeathed us.

    Donald Trump Is OFFICIALLY The President-Elect. Passed 270 as Texas was voting.
