  1. So far the only faithless elector is a guy in Maine who switched his vote from Hillary to Bernie.

      I do not want to think about what tomorrow will be like. The girls and I just passed by our Xmas market this afternoon on the way to go Xmas. It’s incredibly festive with the wine stands and the oyster bars, more of a big party than “just” an outdoor market. They had finally relaxed the airport-type security that was in place at the entrance last year, although I notice that they seem to have moved the bulk of the stands to a big plaza that is extremely difficult to access by car. I am so sick of these assholes who are ruining so much that was nice about living here. (Yes, this is referring to more than the market stands. It’s not ALL about me.)

      • Jadzia says:

        “to go Xmas SHOPPING.” Time to get back to work.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Always great to see you Jadzia, especially when the horrible news comes out of Europe. Stay safe. One of the after affects of my dh’s tours in VN and Beirut, he always needs that restaurant chair that has full view of the entry. Beware of your surroundings !

        • Jadzia says:

          Thanks, Denise! Your DH is a smart man. I would be interested to see if Amazon sales go up after an event like this because people might not want to go to the mall or downtown to shop.

          At least the girls saw Santa today. After acting like motormouths for the previous two hours, both of them were struck dumb in his presence. The eldest was very sad when she got home because she forgot to tell Santa that she had AMENDED her Christmas list since he had received it. Ha ha.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Glad the girls got to see Santa and enjoy a bit of the festive nature. Now have you knowledge of those important amendments that can be “passed along” to Old St Nick?

          That this one sector of the world population is hell bent on destroying everyone else’s culture (because the goat lovers have none) is horrendous in and of itself. Yet, the elites keep prompting and progressives just keep marching off that cliff like lemmings and then berating anyone with enough sense to say hell no.

          You can always tell military/ex military. They scope out a room and never sit with their backs vulnerable if at possible. If they cannot avoid – they move their chairs out and about to get a better view.

    Between those sad terrorist events and the Second Coming of The Donald, it’s blowing up the social snowflake media, I have a feeling my A.D.D. will come in handy today 😛

    • DeniseVB says:

      So Hillary may end up with even less electoral votes? They will be punished !!!! LOL.

    stolen from No Quarter

    WTF is going on in Texas – first this Chris Suprun guy and now 4 electors didn’t show up (two were ineligible)…looks like it could take hours just to replace these people.

    here is a live link to the Texas vote. just sitting there right now

    • DeniseVB says:

      So that’s the delay, thanks. I do think we’ll have a change to the Electoral system, this is ridiculous, it was always a formality, not an extension of election day. Award by Congressional Districts won, only then will the people’s votes count.

      • 49erDweet says:

        I have no problem with a combo of by congressional district plus two per state however state legislators decide. That would leave same number as current EC but would make CD’s (and the voters therein) more important.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I know we’re closer to age than the youngsters here, BUT have you ever seen such a mess, in your lifetime, on this Electoral College vote today???

          • 49erDweet says:

            No, never. I don’t like the winner take all stanceof CA and other states. It’s temporarily appealing but long term bad policy. Doing a modified CD+ system should be fairest to states, parties, voters and candidates.

    • elliesmom says:

      Just one New Year’s resolution for the folks in the video- You should try minding your own damn business. You’d be surprised at how much happier you are.

  6. taw46 says:

    I saw Jake Tapper on CNN criticizing Trump because he hasn’t seen any tweets from him about Turkey or Germany (yeah, tweets are now ok). But this, not one word about this.

    • DeniseVB says:

      The killing of a Russian Ambassador in Turkey= World War III ?
      A possible Electoral College coup today= U.S. Civil War ?
      Berlin terrorist bombing= a lone wolf ?

      Obama justifying spending his holidays in Hawaii to spend more time with his wife then hitting the links = Priceless

  7. elliesmom says:

    Texas has voted – 1 for Ron Paul, 1 for John Kasich, and the rest for Trump, which puts him over the top.

      • CiscoKid says:

        Absolutely perfect lyn, many thanks.
        No I’m going to pull the cork on that bottle of champagne I have.
        “In victory, one deserves it, in defeat one needs it.” Napoleon
        Today I drink in victory, and in salute to President-elect Donald J. Trump, Vice-President-elect Mike Pence and my bud’s here at TCH. God bless us all, each and every one.

        • elliesmom says:

          I have a nice bottle of prosecco I’m saving for January 20th. Tonight I’ve opened a bottle of Cupcake sauvignon blanc recommended by Denise, if I remember correctly. It has a nice pucker to it. After a weekend of baking with Crash, it’s as close to sweets as I want to get tonight.

          • CiscoKid says:

            You know, that’s a better idea.
            Save the champagne for Inauguration Day.
            I do have a couple bottles of inexpensive chianti, I like it with spaghetti.
            I think I’ll have that instead.
            Yes, Inauguration Day is the day to celebrate.🍾

        • DeniseVB says:

          I’ve been pulling corks since June 2015, God Bless Us Every One. ❤

    Editor’s note: Four Democratic electors in Washington state and two Republican electors in Texas successfully cast votes for candidates other than their state’s nominee today. While several democratic electors in Maine, Minnesota and Colorado attempted to cast votes for different candidates, they had their ballots banned due to state rules binding them to their state’s popular vote. Trump has surpassed the 270-vote threshold to formally win the presidency, but the vote is ongoing. – Jillian

  12. helenk3 says:

    Has anyone asked or answered the question, why would Russia help the American people? Why would Russia let the American people know what hillary and her henchmen really thought about the American people? The wikileaks just showed what hillary and her henchmen thought about the American people and how she was prostituting the state dept to line her own pockets. Assange said Russia did not give him the information, that a DNC insider did. Maybe a democrat decided that country before party was really important. Just wondering.

    • CiscoKid says:

      I have given it thought.
      I believe that when Hillary said in the last debate as President she would establish a no fly zone over Syria.
      Russia would then be faced with a most difficult decision, back off or engage.
      Putin is not crazy, and not afraid either, but he didn’t want war with the US.
      I don’t believe Hillary wanted to start one but either was just blustering, or truly didn’t know what the hell she was proposing or its consequences.
      Putin has other fish to fry and he’s been successful already, why start shit?
      imo, he wouldn’t have backed down .
      Hope that made sense.

    • Underwhelmed says:

      I have no doubt it was an insider who couldn’t stomach the corruption any more. But the DNC can’t afford to admit that. Never mind. Let them keep on showing their arses in public (as the SJWs like to say). They just keep on proving over and over why they have no business with any power or control.

      • CiscoKid says:

        On the other hand a good possibility.
        The way Hillary talks to and treats her staff, all it took was one worker ant who was treated like 💩 to take revenge.

    this kid nails it

    • CiscoKid says:

      I believe that SecSer will have the final say the on security issues.
      Trump is a fool, you think he picked these guys because they were campaign contributors or bundlers?
      Trump has become successful because of his intuition on picking tried and tested people.
      Yes, he may have picked a few flops, but I bet they were packed and gone that am.

    • helenk3 says:

      considering how backtrack has contaminated just about every government dept, I would keep my own security too

      • CiscoKid says:

        Local msm neglected (purposely) to report what the assassin shouted after shooting, and on Trumps EC victory this is damn near verbatim from ABC-Chicago.
        “Donald Trump has won the Electoral College making him the 45th President.”
        Sound bite and picture about 5 maybe 10 seconds of air time, but no more.

    • CiscoKid says:

      So the assassin shouts allah-snack-bar and something about Allepo and Kyle can’t add 1 + 1.?

    Time to face reality, Obama — Trump is going to be president

    So this is how it ends — in a whimper wrapped in self-pity and recriminations. With President Obama on the defensive at his final press conference and Hillary Clinton’s last campaign event resembling a wake, the Democratic Party is limping off the stage and into the political winter.

    It was supposed to sit atop the national power pyramid for decades, a new paradigm of liberals, progressives, the young, the old, the unions and blacks, Latinos, Muslims and Asians.

    The torch would be passed from Obama to Clinton, a liberal Supreme Court would vastly expand executive power and the regulatory state would enforce climate-change orthodoxy on all industry and elitist dictates on every American. Globalism would be the new patriotism.

    But a funny thing happened on the way to one-party dominance: The people who work for a living said no, hell no. Their revolt brings Donald Trump to the White House amid hopes of a revival of the economy and of the American spirit.

    Thoroughly beaten, the Dems are at their lowest point in nearly a century. From the White House to Congress to statehouses, they are on the outside looking in.

    Their punishment was well-deserved, as demonstrated by Obama and Clinton. Full of excuses and blaming everyone except themselves, their closing acts proved it is time for them to go.

    They have nothing new to offer, with their vision of the future limited to larger doses of the same failing medicine and their intolerance for disagreement showing they would never learn from their mistakes. Their bad ideas had run their disastrous course.

    Yet instead of analyzing what went wrong and trying to find new organizing principles, party leaders and activists are pointing fingers at the FBI and Russia, and engaging in a mad bid to overturn Trump’s Electoral College victory.

    Because they are doomed to fail, we could be witnessing the death throes of the Democratic Party as we know it. With Obama and the Clintons encouraging the attempted theft of an election they lost and failing to denounce intimidation and death threats against Trump electoral voters, most Americans have reason to consider the Dems a dead letter.

    Yet the final verdict on 2016 depends on Trump’s performance as president. If he delivers “jobs, jobs, jobs” and peace-through-strength abroad, he will forge a new governing consensus and remake the political landscape.

    While it’s too soon to know what exactly Trumpism stands for, it’s clear that many Republican orthodoxies and special-interest debts are being tossed overboard. His Cabinet nominees are incredibly accomplished individuals who come to their new jobs without the burdens of past Washington gridlock. If he can attract centrist-minded Dems, some of whom he is courting, Trump has a chance to build a pragmatic coalition that keeps faith with mainstream America.

    The obstacles, of course, are many. Much of the Islamic world is on fire and the great powers are moving ever closer to confrontation in Europe and Asia.

    Obama leaves office with Russia, Iran and China eating our lunch, with the Chinese theft of a Navy drone a goodbye insult. The unspeakable horror of Syria and the rise of Islamic State will forever be part of the 44th president’s legacy.

    So, too, will be domestic divisions, which grew more stark and bitter in the last eight years. We are now perilously close to a boil, and that, too, falls partially on Obama’s shoulders given his fear-mongering about Trump.

    Against that dark reality, it is reasonable to worry the nation is on the verge of a crack-up. But there is also a possibility that America is on the verge of a new greatness.

    It’s up to Trump. The ultimate outsider and a historic disrupter, he bears some responsibility for the polarization. But victory presents him with an opportunity to make government work for the people, instead of the other way around.

    He is off to a great start and must stay focused to avoid falling down the rabbit holes of petty disputes. America needs the change he promised and he needs to commit every ounce of his being into keeping that promise. If he succeeds, so will the nation. [snip]

    On her way out the door, First Lady Michelle Obama tossed off an ungracious remark, saying, “We’re feeling what not having hope feels like.”

    Actually, what she’s feeling is what half the country felt for most of the last eight years.

    So, my mom called me up tonight. Here is the conversation:

    Mom: Did Trump get the electoral votes to be president?
    Me: Of course he did mom.He won 306 electoral votes. Stopping him today was a pipe dream the left was selling to stay in denial.
    Mom:But is it official? Did he get enough actual votes to be president?
    Me: Yes. It’s official.
    Mom: Good, I can go to bed now. I swear these lunatics on TV are going to give me a heart attack.
    Me: Stop watching them.
