Calling for recounts with timing so precise as to deny the states where the (unnecessary) recounts occur, the ability to respond in time to certify the election BEFORE the College of Electors meets is not like a 5 year old playing with a Glock 22. These people well know what they are doing.
But there is an unintended consequence which is DIRE
Hillary Clinton’s OBVIOUS involvement in a recount which cannot be completed before the electors meet represents a willingness to chance/begin the complete, and irreversible erosion of American faith in the presidential vote as being the determining fact in an election. It means endless attempts to delegitimize any election will become de rigeur, by precedent.
This is exactly, by the way, what the desperate democrats claims the Russian hacks and un-denied wikileaks was trying to do as the agent of IVAN.
If the day arrives that the electors can certify only 260 of Trump’s electoral votes while recounts remain uncompleted, the electors should turn this to the house and senate as the Constitution requires, and THEN President Trump should IMMEDIATELY move to make all Senate legislative votes and cloture votes PLAIN MAJORITY VOTES and ignore a party willing to scorch the earth of American faith – for a TWO YEAR period.
Trump should meet quietly with BOTH House and Senate leaders from his party and then inform Schumer and whoever that turns out to be in the House. Compare this democratic reaction to the reaction of the right after 2008.
Trump should be willing to bet his ideas, his policies, his campaign of 2016 on being able to carry to success and legislation, on every vote taken in Congress.
If this scorched earth by the opposition goes on the path is set anyway and the D’s have decided to go to the wall with utter resistance no matter WHAT THE HISTORICAL COST, and Republicans will then have been compelled to act by a party which did not even BOTHER to try to work anything out before inauguration even occurs, let alone when the new Congress has been seated.
This is not a bunch of college professors and college kids staging protests while foolishly aligning themselves with extremist groups like #BLM whose raison d’etre is LITERALLY actual FAKE NEWS.
I had real hopes given the actual independence of Trump’s ideas there would be MANY areas a bipartisan majority could be found, especially on the coming bilateral trade deals.
It’s all words on the D side, and they are turning out to be words of complete resistance.
If by some miracle Trump is denied, you will not see a bunch of riots by rural america. You will see SERIOUS demands for internal autonomy, border control, taxation independence of and from federal authority and REAL civil violence if SCOTUS rules against local control or local independence. You might see actual secession movements place referendum question on their state ballots. This is my OBSERVATION, not my preference.
All born by the EUCHRED ZEALOT’S burning hatred they call love for another.
Either that, or the Republicans and Trump will legislate by plain majority and succeed in the view of the voters or FAIL and be voted out.
There were a lot of casualties at Okinawa.
But the outcome was inevitable.
The election is OVER. The results KNOWN.
I’d say we’ll see you at the Yasukuni Shrine, but these zealot morons aren’t even doing it for the mother country.
