Good News For Trump: SCOTUS Issues Ruling Against ‘Faithless’ Electors

Published

on

The Supreme Court ruled against “faithless electors,” allowing states to require presidential electors to vote for the candidates they are committed to, which is good news for President Trump just ahead of what is sure to be a very tight contest come November.

Essentially, this means that electors can’t rebel and refuse to cast their votes for the candidate who won the state, therefore, if Trump wins a state, he gets all of the votes without worrying about losing any. The ruling strips a tool of dissension out of the hands of the left who aren’t above using any and every strategy at their disposal to stop him from having a second term.

Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:

The 538 members of the Electoral College are chosen based on the presidential vote in each state, and they, in turn, elect the president of the United States. States can require these electors to vote for the statewide winner or otherwise follow state laws, the court ruled.

Justices decided against four 2016 Electoral College electors seeking to overturn state laws binding them to the presidential nominee to whom they are pledged. In that race, a record seven electors didn’t back the candidate to which they were pledged. A total of 10 electors rebelled last cycle, and seven of those votes counted toward the final tally. The overall results were 304 for Donald Trump, 227 for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and others seven, instead of Trump 306 to Clinton 232.

Four “faithless electors,” one from Colorado and another three from Washington, presented their oral arguments to the Supreme Court last month challenging the laws in 32 states and the District of Columbia.

This is a good thing. Whoever wins a state should be entitled to those Electoral College votes. Period. Even if it’s the Democrats. That’s the way our system works. Really this is a no-brainer. For once, the Supreme Court makes a good decision.

We’ll have to wait and see what kind of impact this has on the 2020 election. Perhaps none of the electors will try to rebel anyway. It’s useless to now, but that’s not stopped the left before.

Save conservative media!

Biden Set to Provide Pathway to Citizenship for Upwards of 20 Million Undocumented Aliens

How do you say, ‘this is a terrible idea,’ in Spanish?

The goal of the Biden administration is simple. It’s not too dissimilar from the goal of the Obama administration’s, either. In a nutshell: destroy America. That’s the plan. From Los Angeles Times: During his first days in office, President-elect Joe Biden plans to send legislation to congress that would provide a pathway to citizenship for 11 million immigrants who are in the country without legal status. Biden’s legislation does not include money to support detention and deportation. Previous immigration bills passed under both Democratic and Republican administrations linked an expansion of immigration with stepped-up enforcement and security measures. CONTINUED: The bill would provide a shorter pathway to citizenship for people with Temporary Protected Status, for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) recipients and likely also for certain frontline essential workers, vast numbers of whom are immigrants. Biden’s proposal would be the most sweeping and comprehensive immigration package since President Reagan’s in 1986 Immigrants would become eligible for legal permanent residence after 5 years and wait 3 more years for U.S. citizenship. After Joe is sworn-in as president, how long will it be before he gives way to Kamala? What say you? A year and half? Two and half years at best?

They’re baaaaaacccckkkkk. Except this time, the United States doesn’t have a strong, pro-American leader in the White House to stop them. Instead, we’re all stuck with beta male Joe and alpha woman Kamala. Lucky us. From New York Post: Guatemalan authorities have detained hundreds of Honduran migrants from the caravan including families with young children, though thousands of others were able to breach border security and continue their march northward, Reuters reported. “We are going to leave the country, to ask for help wherever they receive us,” one migrant told The Associated Press. Some 6,500 souls are on the move, fleeing poverty and political corruption in the hope of ultimately finding a better life in the United States.
