    Libtards want to eliminate the electoral college.

    Do they not understand that USA is a REPUBLIC?

    Eliminate State contribution in favor of a Nationwide popular vote and you likely will end up with States wanting independence.. waring tribes… just like Europe.

      “The electoral college, after all, is enshrined in our Constitution, which means getting rid of it requires a constitutional amendment. That’s a two-thirds vote in both the House and the Senate and the ratification of three-fourths (38) of the 50 states.Nov 9, 2016.”

      Fat FFFFFocking chance!

      It’s just another excuse for ILLary’s monumental loss. Remember there was no path for a President TRUMP. They all said so. 😉


      The way to shut down this argument is to remind them that they gave their DIM Reps carte blanche to choose the President. Their vote doesn’t matter either way. How quickly they forget. How stupid are the sheeples.

      Europe has an unelected, self-perpetuating, Satanic “government” (EC) answering to no one. The European Parliament (EP), who are elected, are just window-dressing, rubber-stamping anything the EC gives them, while occasionally pretending to put up a little fuss, in deference to the proles who “elected” them.

      Like the Borg, cancer, a virus, or a self-aware Roomba, the “elite” grab power when no-one is looking, where no-one suspects they would dare to assume control, and immediately install 1000 bureaucrats in the bowels of Brussels to insure that 10,000 pages DAILY of rules and regulations serve to preserve that ill-gotten “kontrol”…

      We all need to be more discerning (and skeptical), and PUSH BACK when folks assume power/control/authority/regulation where it is not justified.

      My Pop, GOD rest his soul, saw this coming in England 60 years ago. Folks thought he was making a fuss about nothing, but, here we are. He was of the opinion (1960s!) that:
      1) the Pakis will take over London and England if no one does anything about it
      2) the Common Market was not good for England, even if getting in was spitting on France
      3) the Chinese will take over the world, if they just get organized

      Three out of three. Not bad. Sorry I wound you up, Pop… Would that more people were so discerning today…

    I believe that the Christine Blasey Ford gambit was an extension of the sinister activities underway since early 2016 in the Department of Justice and the FBI to un-do the last presidential election, and that the real and truthful story about these seditious monkeyshines is going to blow wide open.

    Still processing the Chrissy Caper.

    At least two of Chrissy’s neurotic reactions to her near death experience of sexual assault were fictional: her fear of flying and needing a second front door due to an ancient incident in a bedroom. She even went through the other door (not the door her mother chose) at the Safeway before bravely psychoanalyzing Judge’s face only a month after surviving sexual assault and near manslaughter!

    It is almost as if Chrissy’s tale was purposely constructed to furnish plausible deniability If It Went South. Her plausible deniability was her neurotic personality! It was supposed to ultimately explain her weird behavior (that it turns out she doesn’t exhibit in real life!). If push came to shove, her faulty memories could have been mistaken, through no fault of her own, poor dear!

    What about her creaky childish voice? Is that part of the deception as well? How long had she had marriage counselling before putting down a paper trail in 2012?

    Take it a step further, maybe Monica was involved at THE RISK of being exposed … it was acceptable risk compared to Chrissy going off in the weeds on live TV. Monica HAD to be there to help Chrissy pick up and shift directions on the fly – during the breaks. And the FBI has plausibility deniability of involvement — they’d claim Monica was a rogue agent operating “on her own”. THAT would explain why she could be at Chrissy’s performance (in case Chrissy needed some coaching during the breaks). She really WAS Chrissy’s control. The pretense would be the FBI would “deal with” the retired agent later. They couldn’t risk sending Chrissy out on her own, in spite of all the coaching.

    More thoughts on the Caper:

    Kavanaugh bet the farm when he stated he had been a virgin until college. NO ONE contested it. But even more meaningfully, the MSM did not report that aspect to the case!

    In retrospect, CBF was overly anxious to establish the Judge story and demand his employment be verified so that the exact date could be narrowed down. This was a complete red herring. Judge was critical to her story because his “loosely factual” novel became the “factual” anchor underpinning her story.

    No one ever established when she first met Kavanaugh, or revealed the identity of a single acquaintance they had in common who remembers a single interaction. Hence the embellishments about Judge, including the ridiculous idea that she would analyze and remember his countenance in detail. She should have run back to the car and been mortified if ther near death experience had been real.

    Rachel Mitchell’s questioning showcased CBF’s ability to emphatically lie under oath. “Never”, she claimed about coaching anyone ever for any polygraph. (See the CSPAN video around the 40-50 mins area.) What else did she emphatically lie about?

    There were several cases when she refused to answer questions, instead offering irrelevant “cute” details delivered with hopping up and down in her chair and smiling. Mitchell wasn’t fooled.

    And at the very end, Mitchell intimated that there may have been child abuse. That was no coincidence. Mitchell has seen it all, and she was communicating that child abuse was a valid explanation that might better explain all the inconsistencies and frank holes. She was signalling that the story was on valid on its face!

    In her report, she was able to communicate the glaring holes in CBF PhD’s testimony and evidentiary timeline. No matter the possible legacy of Chrissy’s problematic story, it didn’t hold water sufficient to be prosecuted.

    It’s starting to look like the ONLY material and factual tie that Chrissy ever had with Kavanaugh was the fact she lived 8.3 miles from him and was 2 years younger. Without Mark Judge’s novel, she never would have had enough plausible details or “feel” for individual characters within his milieu.

    The layers of onion feel to it all is the signature of intelligence operation – and this one went bad on live TV!

      Makes me wonder if Ballsy Fraud was so sure of her superior self that of course Keyser would back up any lie she threw out there.

      There’s a new article out about Fraud’s fear, death threats, afraid to live in her home.

        Thanks Molly. I’ll follow up on the age difference tomorrow! You’re right – 2 years is a world of difference at that age! Even the 15 – 17 difference between Kavanaugh and CBF sounds hokey to me. Decent guys would be cognizant of that huge difference at that age and adjust their behavior accordingly. There’s also a report that Monica tried to sway Keyser abt her statement, have to follow that up too.

    Have become obsessed with the stinking Caper. The more you look, the more it smells!

    Does anybody know for certain if a person in common between Kavanaugh and Ford was ever named? She alluded to a person in testimony with Rachel Mitchell, but refused to name him/her. Does anyone know if that person’s identity was ever revealed? This may not be critical, but without anyone actually in common between the two parties, it makes it more likely Ford (and almost certainly Monica) created the incident whole cloth sometime between 2012 – July 4-6, 2018.

    The “junk” about the front door may have been part of the original 2012 story. It almost seems like it was a Legacy Detail from the original 2012 concoction they ended up shelving. CTH pretty much destroyed this story. It’s almost like the storyteller mistakenly went too far, It must have seemed an important detail in 2012.

    And do we even know if this “marriage therapy” even happened at ALL? She and her lawyers refused to release the records to Grassley. One thing we DO know is that the idea that she was in therapy gave this couple a chance to establish a paper trail that would be extremely difficult for investigators to ever obtain, due to HIPAA. Smelling a rat here too, given how much of Ford’s tale was true — so far just her name was accurate. Hell, even on that she inflated herself. Her real title is Christine M Blasey PhD. (That’s “Dr. Christine Blasey Ford” to you!)

    About Kunstler’s article in PowerLine that GetFitNow referenced above:

    Notice the testy passages in the testimony were all centered on the atty/client priviledge. That’s normal, but in THIS case, we have the Democrat Lawyer Katz working with FBI Lawyer Bromwich.

    That’s where the action was!!! Those two were the conduits for communication and coordination between the FBI and Dianne!! And it is all protected communication!

    THAT is why they got SOOO testy with Mitchell when she asked who suggested she hire Katz. It was like pulling teeth!! She actually had to circle around and approach a second time to get any info abt who suggested Ford hire Katz. (It was Dianne’s office — see CSPAN video around 38:00 or so) But Mitchell never got to the circumstances leading to hiring Bromwich!!

    We of course knew this in our gut, but now it’s all becoming impossible to NOT see!!

    Picking up on an earlier post I made, in another thread.
    NORMALLY, and I’m sure political consultants would tell any candidate, there are 2 things you can do, to increase your chances of wunning;

    Increase YOUR vote, or suppress your opponents vote. You can modify, or soften your positions, a little, to try and get some independants, or moderates in the other side, while not losing your own supporters.

    You can try to frame the debate in such a way so as to discourage or depress your opponents turn out.

    But, NORMALLY, something you can’t do, so don’t bother trying, is get significant #’s of those who would normally support your opponent, to vote for you.

    So, pollsters, pundits and prognosticators are not properly calculating something they haven’t seen in their lifetimes or careers.

    If I go out and persuade someone who wasn’t going to vote in midterms, to vote and vote Republican, I’ve increased ‘our’vote, by one, and, Dems have to dig up one vote, to cancel it out.

    However, in the case of a #walkaway, a LIFELONG democrat voter, is so p.o.’d at the dam party they will crawl through broken glass, to vote Republican.

    In order to offset that vote, they have to dig up 2 dem voters; one, to make up for the losses vote, and a second to offset this person now voting Republican!

    Now, multiply that by 10,000 or more, and figure for every person that makes a #walkaway video, there are what,..10-100 who feel the same way, but AREN’T going to make a video, considering the harrassment we get, just for wearing a MAGA hat.

    For every dem voter, who voted rep the dems need to get 2 votes, just to stay even.

    Such as massive shift of voters hasn’t happened since blacks went from reliably republican, to reliably democrat, which I THINK started with FDR, and finished with LBJ.

    So, it is simply not in the calculations of those making predictions, as it is outside their experience.

    We will find out, when we all vote, on Nov. 7th, and view the results in the 8th, lol. But, I think it’s possible that the shock of 2016 is going to be nothing like the shock to the system, collectively, of these midterms.

    We, the people may finally realise just how strong, United and numerous we are. And the pundits ain’t gonna see it coming!
    Anyway, a “theory”,…
