    FTA “A U.S. appeals court in Denver said Electoral College members can vote for the presidential candidate of their choice and aren’t bound by the popular vote in their states.The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that the Colorado secretary of state violated the Constitution in 2016 when he removed an elector and nullified his vote because the elector refused to cast his ballot for Democrat Hillary Clinton, who won the popular vote.The ruling applies only to Colorado and five other states in the 10th Circuit: Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming…”But the split decision by a three-judge panel on the Denver appeals court said the Constitution allows electors to cast their votes at their own discretion. “The state does not possess countervailing authority to remove an elector and to cancel his vote in response to the exercise of that Constitutional right,” the ruling said.”

    This decision is ripe for Soros to get involved in the selection of electors. I didn’t know the Constitution allowed electors “to cast their votes at their own discretion”? So electors can vote for who ever they want according to the 10th Circuit! Who knew? Hope that isn’t the way it’s supposed to work and someone can explain this legal ruling!!!

      This is so infuriating. They are there to represent the will of the people. Not their own personal opinion. Co was pushing this crap in 2016.
      If this is accepted, the people of Co cant even pretend they have representation.

      Faithless elector: A court ruling just changed how we pick our president

      The Supreme Court ruled in 1952 that states do not violate the Constitution when they require electors to pledge that they will abide by the popular vote. But the justices have never said whether it is constitutional to enforce those pledges.

      Legal scholars said Tuesday’s ruling was the first from a federal appeals court on the issue of faithless electors. It applies immediately to the six states of the 10th Circuit: Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Kansas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.

      The federal court ruling conflicts with a decision from Washington state’s Supreme Court in May, which said electors must follow the results of the popular vote. “The power of electors to vote comes from the state, and the elector has no personal right to that role,” the court said.

      Lawyers from the nonprofit Equal Citizens, which represented the Washington state electors and Baca in Colorado, said they will appeal the Washington ruling to the Supreme Court.

    And lunatics from the left asylum will agree with him.

    Beto “Che” O’Rourke endorses Parkland survivors idea of federal level gun confiscations of ‘assault weapons’, a national gun registry, a licensing system for both guns and ammunition which imposes annual fees. In order to obtain a license, the multi-step process would include “background checks, in-person interviews, personal references, rigorous gun safety training, and a waiting period of 10 days for each gun purchase.” The license would expire after one year.
    Well, first of all, SCOTUS ruled in a PA case involving Jehovah’s Witnesses that a constitutional right can’t be licensed. If they try to license it, it would lead to licensing word processors, churches; maybe even having to register your tongue to exercise free speech. ACLU might even get involved. And SCOTUS ruled you can’t tax a right, either, in the Pole Tax case.

    Anyway….federal gun confiscations would send a lot of gun confiscation agents to an early funeral.

    El Paso, Dayton, and sensationalized mass killings pale in comparison to the government’s multi agency execution of innocent Americans in 1993 in a tiny TX town called Waco. Many of us watched the massacre live, on TV, as BATF, FBI, and DELTA gassed, shot, and burned to death 83 men, women, and children. While the place was still burning the feds brought in bulldozers to destroy evidence of their mass killing.

    Like the site said, there will be no more free Waco’s. We learned that when they come for you with an army of tanks, grenades, machine guns, snipers, helicopters, CS gas, and flames; they’re not out to arrest you and they’re not acting in the name of law, order, or justice. They’re out to murder you to teach others like you what happens when you don’t bow the knee to their perverted, twisted, sick “society” in which they’re gods and you’re untermenchen to be slaughtered for sport.

    Quotes form book, “Never Surrender”, by Lt. Gen (Ret) William “Gerry” Boykin, founding member, DELTA Force, page 240-244:

    * “Because it was a domestic matter, Delta followed the case like everyone else-by watching the news. Detalis began to emerge: Koresh had oined the Branch Davidians….in the 1930s….and was driven from the compound at gunpoint but later returned to seize control of the cult in a shootout”. (False. There was no shootout. Boots)

    “Koresh and his followers then settled into a weird blend of apocalyptic theology and survivalism, stockpiling food and weapons in preparation for their fiery last stand.” (Koresh was a BATF licensed gun dealer. All gun dealers stockpile weapons. It’s called an inventory. And the Bible itself says the earth will be destroyed by fire. Boots.)

    “Delta was directed to send technical support to help the FBI. I sent three Delta operators to the scene, where their role was to provide cameras and audio devices and advice on how to use them.” (Bull. They machine gunned Davidians who were running out of the burning cafeteria. It was all caught live on FBI FLIR footage from plane circling above that day. Boots.)

    “Reno (Janet) looked at me, “Would you like to add anything, Colonel?” Well, I can tell you that if this was a military operation, we would hit the place from every side, all at once, and it would all be over in seconds.”

    This is why you can never put too much stock into what politicians (including POTUS) say in the heat of the moment:

    More background checks?
    Fading away

    Red Flag Laws?
    Fading away
