The Snowflake Meltdown Continues


Every day brings more schadenfreude.

Here’s an article from the Zuccotti Park Law Review:

Russian Hacks Just Gave Courts Legal Precedent To Replace Trump With Hillary

In light of revelations on Friday that Russian hackers interfered with the presidential election specifically to elect Donald Trump, Clinton supporters and advocates of free democracy are eagerly searching for potential measures to prevent Trump from assuming the presidency at the hands of the Kremlin. One important legal precedent for such an impeachment is Marks v. Stinson, a 1994 case in which the U.S. Supreme Court invalidated a state senate election and ordered the vacancy to be filled by the losing opponent after massive fraud was uncovered.

The Pennsylvania state senate held a special election in 1993 to fill a seat left vacant by the death of the previous senator. The contest pitted Republican Bruce Marks against Democrat William Stinson, who was ultimately successful in winning the seat. After Stinson was elected, however, evidence of widespread fraud in the election came to light.

Moreover, two elected officials testified under oath that they had been aware of the fraud and did nothing. Thus after Stinson had already taken office a federal judge ordered that he vacate his seat within 72 hours and hand it over to Marks, a ruling that was maintained upon appeal by the Supreme Court.

While the circumstances of the 1994 case are obviously significantly different from the controversy surrounding last month’s election, the ruling does establish some degree of a precedent for a high court overturning the results of an election based on evidence of malfeasance.

Thus if it becomes clear that Donald Trump won the presidency because of Russian interference – which, while hard to prove, does not seem out of the question – it would be possible for a court to invalidate the results and install Hillary Clinton. In Marks v. Stinson the testimony of the two elected officials who knew of the fraud proved crucial to the case.

Thus revelations that Mitch McConnell was aware of the Russian hacks and that members of Trump’s team were holding secret meetings with the Kremlin during the campaign bode well for any such impeachment effort.

Besides direct litigation there are several other efforts underway to prevent Trump from assuming the presidency. Chief among these is the campaign to convince Electoral College members to act as conscientious electors and vote for Clinton instead of Trump.

While Trump’s 37 vote lead in the electoral college makes such an effort unlikely, many have argued that the very reason the electoral college exists is to prevent a demagogic populist like Trump from riding to the presidency on a wave of ignorant anger.

Moreover, an online petition urging the Electoral College to vote for Hillary has surpassed five million signatures. As unlikely to succeed as these moves may seem, every effort we can make is worth it to protect this country, the world, and its people from a Trump presidency. And the fact that Trump seems to have won his victory with the aid of interference by a hostile foreign dictatorship is all the more reason to fight against his installation as the most powerful man in the world.


I didn’t realize that Occupy Wall Street was still around. Clearly they are a farce to be reckoned with.

Let’s assume, arguendo, that the Russians really did hack the DNC and then used Wikileaks to release all those emails exposing the lies, hypocrisy, and corruption within the Democrat party and Hillary’s campaign.

That isn’t fraud. And while hacking is illegal there is no evidence that Donald Trump was directly involved. Even if you could prove fraud and the direct involvement of Trump there are lots of other issues involved, like causation, standing, and jurisdiction. Last but not least, it would never get resolved before January 20th, so who would be President during the litigation?

This reminds me of some of the birther lawsuits claiming that Obama was constitutionally ineligible to be President. They went nowhere too.

      I sense Krugman butthurt. He never attended a Tea Party rally…ever. Otherwise, he’d understand what it was really about since DC 9-12-09…..which gave us Trump 🙂 (I was there!) Whew, been a long ass Revolution, Go Trump !

    “many have argued that the very reason the electoral college exists is to prevent a demagogic populist like Trump from riding to the presidency on a wave of ignorant anger.”

    Yeah, that’s it… All Trunp voters are ignorant. Thank goodness for Elites like you.

  2. DailyPUMA says:

    Is there any scenario in which you would agree that Trump shouldn’t be president?

    • Venus says:

      Yes, go back in time & get Hillary to win 270 Electoral Votes on November 8th instead of the 232 she did win — giving her the WORST EV SHOWING FOR A DEMOCRAT SINCE DUKAKIS.

      Other than that, GFY.

    • swanspirit says:

      Of for fucks sake! Take a damn dose of reality before someone prescribes an antipsychotic for you. Is there any scenario in which you realise most of the country voted Republican?

    • Somebody says:

      Daily puma might I suggest you seek out the “School House Rocks”, Electoral College edition to help you understand the Presidential election process in our Republic. You can also find information on Congress for kids website.

      Donald J Trump won the Presidency, come January 20th he will be sworn into office. Deal with it.

    • Lulu says:

      Let’s turn that around shall we. Is their any scenario in which the US public, after a legal election, should accept the “selection” by elites and apparatchiks such as yourself of a non-elected president? I don’t think so. The gravy train is ending for the Dems and their flunkies and special interests. Couching it in “faux” language just makes it clearer what they are about. This is exactly why you, and the Dems, are at their weakest level in a hundred years. Rejection is difficult but do try to keep up.

    this floored me. I was a democrat in 1984. I knew teddy was the weak link in the kennedy family but I did not know he was this bad.

    this is beyond today’s democrats understanding. they will never get it

  7. Constance says:

    I’m starting to think all this Russia crap and trying to stop Trump taking office is pointing to a massive secret being covered by the CIA that the establishment Dems (Hillary) know about. They are filled with fear of Trump finding out. At first I thought they were psychotic but now I think they are legitimately terrified. Why would the CIA be investigating something like this? Shouldn’t it be the FBI?

    remember the guy that was killed in the middle of the night in I think georgetown? Didn’t assante hint that he was the leaker?

  13. elliesmom says:

    Jill Stein proved Russia didn’t hack our voting machines. At the very worst Russia helped spread negative stories about one side, but not the other. That wouldn’t invalidate an election. It would make them equivalent to the NYT or WaPo.

        • Lulu says:

          She is mostly just saying “we fucked up America, we fucked up” so I would guess she is giving up except for the kvetching and whining. There is a lot of this going on. I would guess they don’t want to fuck up their partying at Christmas with serious symptoms of mental illness. The only ones who are still batshit crazy about it all are the ones who are in legal jeopardy or losing their shitty little livelihoods as the clerisy to the globalists. Soros cannot afford to pay them ALL forever. Nor can the Clinton Foundation or Center for American Progress. Hard times coming for the mouthpieces.

  14. DandyTIger says:

    Funny thing about the progs talking about overthrowing the election is, I don’t think they understand that would mean revolution. You know, with all that messy killing and blood flowing through the streets stuff. I don’t think they’ve thought this through. I mean, they could possibly have their feelings hurt. Especially when their heads were rolling down the avenue.

    • Not a lot of special snowflakes in the military or police, and they hate guns. So who is gonna do the fighting for them?

    • Venus says:

      Their “thought process” — such as it is — doesn’t game it out that far. They’ve been taught that “wishing makes it so” and think the rest of us will simply accept the overthrowing of the election.
      ‘Cause they’re so good and right, we’d all just be awed by the goodness & right-ness of it all.

      • Lulu says:

        We are turning into Yugoslavia. Or maybe India, Pakistan, Bangladesh after the end of the Raj. The globalist lefty/fascists want what they want when they want it with ZERO compromise, no consideration of the cause/effect or aftershocks, and rather than tone it down have turned it to max volume. As near as I can tell it is all coming from the tiny strips on the east/west coasts and a few idiots in scattered flyover cities. Perhaps we need to “partition” and let them have their utopia and starve for a few years. The “Russia” thing is a last gasp. Their opposition to Sessions has been basically dropped so they know the deconstruction of their cost shifting, parasitic, SJW enslavement of the rest of the country is winding down soon which is what Rahm’s trip to Trump Tower was about. This is a hissy fit by the left over money which is what globalism and Democratic party politics are all about. How do they get it from others without earning any of it.

  17. Lulu says:

    The Dems seem to have given up opposing Sessions as openly said by Unca Joe. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/12/11/jeff-sessions-vice-president-joe-biden-ok/
    This is by far the most important appointment at least domestically. He is the lynch pin of wresting control back. The rest including SOS is not as important to a Trump administration and anyone who will follow Trump’s lead can head those agencies. The Tillerson stuff almost seems like he is sending them off on a wild goose chase and poking them in the eye. And this “friend of Russia” was negotiating very lucrative deals benefiting ExxonMobile stockholders of which the various administrations said not a fucking word including those globalists McCain and Graham.

    • taw46 says:

      Sessions is the one I care about. It doesn’t matter to me who puts in the other positions, I trust Trump. I have admired Sen. Sessions for many years, and his appointment tells me Trump means what he says about getting us back to a law and order country.

    • lateblum says:

      That last part, Lulu, about Exxon negotiating lucrative deals with Russia and the administration (incl. McCain and Graham) saying NOTHING is what I’m going to use this Christmas when they start in on their anti-Trump tirades. In fact, I may not wait. I may just send out emails this week giving them time to make up something else to use.
      Good times.

          The ball sounds like a blast. I bet you have loads of fun. I hope Diamond and Silk and Bill Mitchell make an appearance too! It’s anybody’s guess who may stop by, DJT himself could surprise everyone or maybe one of his kids.

          No matter which VIP’s show up, it sounds like it’s going to be a fun crowd and a fun evening. Enjoy yourself!! I wish I could go, but it’d be really hard to make it back here by 6am to watch the grandkids, LOL!

          Get hopping on the camera, btw do you have a smart phone with a camera? If you do maybe we could tutor you because it’s much easier to upload pictures from your phone. You are going to be our official Crawdad Hole representative so we expect a full report and lots of pictures of the ball and the inauguration!!!

    • lateblum says:

    • Lulu says:

      They love the CIA political appointees and their flunkies anyway. I kind of see this Russia stuff as a pre-purge hissy fit to destroy what they will be leaving involuntarily.

      • helenk3 says:

        a retired CIA agent at No Quarter said the same thing. They are quitting in droves before the firing begins

    • Venus says:

      #FakeNews lies again — Trump didn’t ridicule the “CIA’s assessment” — there has been no “CIA assessment” — there has been a “secret assessment” that was leaked by an unnamed source to WaPo & NYT (‘natch) that the Dems/NeverTrumps/MSM (but I repeat myself) are running with to extrapolate into “Russia helped Trump win election.” THAT is what Trump is saying is ridiculous. (And, btw, Reince says flat out that the RNC wasn’t hacked; after DNC Leaks came out, he had FBI over to the RNC to check out if they had been compromised too & there was no hack of RNC, so that “secret assessment” is bullshit right there).

      I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again the libs are going even more batshit insane in the face of their stunning loss (306 EVs to 232 — the worst showing in EVs for a Dem since Dukakis!) then I could have hoped for in my wildest dreams. Their desperation and tears are delicious — like chocolate cake made of flour from the crushed bones of my enemies. BEST ELECTION EVAH!!!

      As for the “national popular vote” b.s. they keep whining about — that is the equivalent of being checkmated in a game of chess and insisting you won because you still have 6 pieces on the board while your opponent has 4. The coasts can’t fucking handle that fly over country is dictating to *them* for a change.

    • votermom says:

      The CIA has a lot of Mormons – I wonder if Egg McMuffin is the source

  20. DeniseVB says:

    Yep.

    • Lulu says:

      Th FBI has already said in essence that it is bullshit. The globalist congress-critters have selective hearing from when the FBI told them this in a secret briefing that one of them leaked and the FBI can’t talk about and refute the CIA bullshit. This is an old tactic.

      • lateblum says:

        And since the FBI has already discredited the “Russia Hacked My Election” baloney, Obama is not demanding an investigation by the FBI. he already knows what they will find and hit won’t support his narrative.

    If anyone tries to convince you that the Obama economy is doing well I present exhibit A)

    A) Apparently Publisher’s Clearing House can no longer afford the prize van crew. Now when you win it’s just some guy with a thick accent calling you from his personal cell phone to inform you that you won and get all your identity information for “tax purposes”. That’s right, they’ve outsourced the fucking Publisher’s Clearing House sweepstakes to Bangladesh or Pakistan or somewhere! Oh and they significantly lowered first prize it’s now only 1.5 million, which is why I didn’t bother, LMAO!

    Please make sure any elderly or vulnerable people you might know are aware of this scam.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’m still waiting for my check from the Nigerian Prince 😉 Thanks for the warning.

      I think PCH was the original scammer. Remember those big fat envelopes with YOU JUST WON A GAZILLION DOLLARS! ? Then you opened it to find out the “rules” and having a one in a gazillion chance of winning. I used to subscribe to their cheap magazine offers thinking what the hell, I’ll just up my chance 😀 The wording was complicated, I think some poor elderly guy actually drove a thousand miles to pick up his check at their home office.

      BTW, Amazon magazine subscriptions are the cheapest I’ve seen since those 70’s scams.

    • helenk3 says:

      I received a check in the mail supposedly for publisher’s clearing house several months ago. The check was for $8900.00. I do enter the sweepstakes and the check looked real. But the letter said that after I deposited the check I should give them my banking info so they could automatically deposit the weekly checks for $8900.00. Did not sound right to me. I went to my bank and had three officials who could not figure out if it was real or not. That is how good the check looked. I went to the bank the check was written on. It took the official 1/2 hour to find that it was false. So please do be careful.

        I agree Denise, out of all the who’s your daddy theories he definitely looks more like Malcolm X. Then there are the weird things like O’s scar and Bari M. Shabazz car wreck in Hawaii, etc, etc.

        Personally I’ve never believed O was born in Kenya. I think there is something there in that he’s so secretive about stuff, to me it screams he’s trying to hide something. However that something may well just be something embarrassing or something to do with his adoption by Sotero or that he got aid as a foreign student in college.

        We’ll probably never know and at this point what difference does it make.

    A heart breaking story of a child made an angel to soon.
    Eternal peace in Gods arm little child.
    All a terminally ill Nashville boy wanted for Christmas was to meet Santa Claus — and he did, and then died in Old St. Nick’s arms.

    Modal Trigger
    Eric Schmitt-MatzenPhoto: Facebook
    The 5-year-old was minutes away from death when a nurse at the Tennessee hospital where he was being treated called Eric Schmitt-Matzen, a 300-plus-pound mechanical engineer who looks like a real-life Kris Kringle.

    The 60-year-old, who slips into a Santa outfit for about 80 gigs a year, didn’t even have time to change into his regular getup.

    He rushed to the hospital 15 minutes later in only his Santa suspenders — though he still looked the part with his long, white beard and prodigious belly. The nurse handed him a gift she had ready for the sick boy.

    “When I walked in, he was laying there, so weak it looked like he was ready to fall asleep. I sat down on his bed and asked, ‘Say, what’s this I hear about you’re gonna miss Christmas? There’s no way you can miss Christmas. Why, you’re my number one elf,’” he recalled to Knoxville News Sentinel.

    The unnamed boy perked up, using his last burst of energy to unwrap the toy.

    “They say I’m gonna die,” the boy told Schmitt-Matzen. “How can I tell when I get to where I’m going?”

    Schmitt-Matzen replied: “When you get there, you tell ‘em you’re Santa’s number one elf, and I know they’ll let you in.”

    The boy then gave Santa a last hug.

    “I wrapped my arms around him. Before I could say anything, he died right there. I let him stay, just kept hugging and holding on to him,” Schmitt-Matzen told the paper.

    The boy’s mom ran in moments later screaming, “No, no, not yet,” which caused all the nursing staff to break down in tears — and also got Schmitt-Matzen watery-eyed.

    “I spent four years in the Army with the 75th Rangers and I’ve seen my share of [stuff],” he said. “But I ran by the nurses’ station bawling my head off. I know nurses and doctors see things like that every day, but I don’t know how they can take it.”

    Schmitt-Matzen said the moment happened several weeks ago, and it was enough to make him want to ditch his Santa routine — but the feeling didn’t last long.

    “When I saw all those children laughing, it brought me back into the fold. It made me realize the role I have to play — for them and for me.”
