Does anyone really think a President Trump will put up with this?

jimmyk

Pretty funny that it looks like Hillary will lose more EVs than Trump from faithless electors. Four already from WA.

TX should be voting pretty soon now that they've replaced the four absent voters. Apparently this Suprun fraud is there. I was hoping there would be a motion to make him ineligible, but it hasn't happened yet.

Here's a better live feed from TX:

Interesting question, OL.

Graydon Carter is a partner in The Waverly Inn, west Village, which is one of our favorites. Great bar and superb food but then I am one of those Trumpian neanderthals, so what would I know. It could be worse than Trump Tower for all I kow.

Trump now at 268. Only TX remains.

Obama said he "could do things" to RUSSIA/PUTIN.

Oh dear, his rhetoric just got an AMBASSADOR murdered.

Isn't that how LIBTARDS play the game????

"Cut it out, GUS":)

He believes his own lies and that is what makes him dangerous even out of office. The best way for Trump to handle this puss is to tell him he is yesterday and just STFU.

MAG_Trump poster on reddit is saying the Texas GOP is beyond disorganized with how they are handling what should be a formality.

lurker susie's 5:20 and "faithless" votes in another state (?) tell me that there is still strong Bernie-bot support out there and that bodes well for Trump 4 years from now.

Freedom isn't free but college, healthcare, living wage, transportation and rave concerts should be.

Trump gets 36 in TX!! One for Ron Paul and one for the mailman's son.

Is everyone in off the ledge now???

So does Trump go down in history as having won 306 or 304?

Porchlight

OL,

All righty then fam.

Time to drink!

jimmyk

I think 304, unless TX does something about the losers faithless electors.

Of course Hillary will go down in history with only 228.

Marlene

I have to give credit to Rick Bennett,the Trump elector in Maine,in fact the only Trump elector in New England. Yay! 2nd District! He recently resigned as the Maine GOP chair. His kids are now in college and he will probably run for statewide office.

37 VP votes for Pence, 1 for Carly Fiorina.

Suprun had said he'd vote for Kasich.

Momto2

So basically the Dems, the MSM (but I repeat myself), and Hollywood has taken what would have been a formality, a blimp on the radar, and turned it into Another Big Win for PE Trump and another night to celebrate for us!

A toast - "To PE Trump, to all the Deplorables, and to 8 years of MAGA!!!"

Porchlight

jimmyk,

I think though if you look at the election maps for 2016 it will always say 306-232 regardless of the final EV vote tally.

Otherwise it would be confusing, as the numbers would't add up (number of EVs available per state, total number of EVs in college, etc.).

For example: http://www.270towin.com/

OK, The second stage has been completed or is nearing completion. Now for the counting of the votes and the hearing of objections in Congress, if any.

Victory! Finally! Officially!

Thomas Collins

What's the over/under on the number of objections to be filed by Congresscritters to the final Electoral College vote count? I'll say three.

Thomas Collins

Not yet, James D. Congress hasn't counted the votes yet.

jimmyk

Hi Porch, I think it depends on the source. I posted earlier that on Wiki they do the actual tally. For example in 1976 there was one vote for Reagan:

What kind of idiot thought that they were going to be successful at suborning electors to abandon their pledge? That would be Hollywood idiots which a rare and special breed of idiot...

Thomas Collins

I was feeling guilty about not paying off my side of the bet, Porchlight, but, having checked the US Constitution and section 15 of title 3 of the US Code, I conclude that the clock doesn't start running until Congress counts the votes.

By the way, Porchlight, on my Christmas list for my family I put as my first priority a Carleton College cap. So I'm getting ready to do the deed. I'll buy some regalia myself if my family doesn't come through.

lyle

Wine snobs? Here? Whoever might you be referring to? 🍷😬

Miss Marple the Deplorable

windandsea,

Oh, it doesn't bother me. I have smoked since I was 15, so the fact is that I don't have the sense of taste that the wine afficianados do. The advantage is that I can buy the Australian or Chilean table merlots and it tastes just fine to me.

8.99 - 10.99 for the big bottle! Or I can go over to Aldis and buy their Winking Owl merlot for 2.59 for the smaller bottle!

lyle's cellar is mysterious to me. I probably couldn't tell the difference between his most expensive bottle and the junk I buy, so don't anyone offer to invite me to a wine-tasting; it would be a waste of your money. LOL!

Porchlight

TC, you are a man of your word. I love that. :)

My own BIL didn't even pay up on his bet!

They can call his restaurant the worst in America, but the worst comment in the story, was to call to Mr. Trump “the Fake Newser in Chief.”

And it's not so much their saying it, it's their thinking it, and writing it, and persuading others to believe it, which is bigoted misperception based on falsity and manifested in slander.

But most of all, it's the main reason they lost the election. They don't know their enemy at all, have not yet seen that the enemy is themselves. They are ignoring the rule of holes, and for Republicans that is good news indeed.

As I've said before, they lack the introspection gene.

Porchlight

jimmyk, I can live with it either way, but come 2020 I'm going to be using the 306-232 numbers in order to compare apples to apples, independent of post-election silliness.

Hiya Miss Marple,

Is the furnace problem resolved yet?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Porchlight,

All they would have to do is start giving Trump a bit of positive coverage.

But no, instead they double down.

So people like me just skip any MSM source and hit the places like Reddit, Conservative Treehouse, and Infowars.

Do they sometimes get stuff wrong? Sure. But it's a mistake borne of error, not malicious intent. Besides, I can always check other sources.

henry - drunk on prog tears

I will simply note the "non partisan" aka Dem groups had 6 years to get these people photo IDs., but would rather have the examples for their lawsuits. Figure 20,000 of the 40,000 drop in Milwaukee vote have valid IL IDs and like free bus rides (see O'Keefe vids) and you see where the argument comes from.

Yes, furnace solved, and I am very grateeful that it's fixed! Thanks for asking!

MM--if you have Trader Joes around, get yourself a bottle of Trentarte and see how you like that. It's an Italian blend of three varietals. Sells for $5.99 here.

I like it as much as anything I drink until we open a bottle of some twenty year old French stuff that we bought long ago and is now retailing for $400.

So there! to everything in between, as far as I'm concerned.

FYI, the pineapple jello vodka shooters we made for tonight in light of my husband's colonoscopy tomorrow and his clear liquid diet tonight--not so great. Maybe lime would have been a better choice.

MAGA!

While waiting at Walgreen I skimmed the man of the year cover, two things of note trump team were in black and white, whereas red queen was in color, and they had A man in the high castle insert.

Lots of competition for "worst restaurant in America". I invite the Vanity Fair writer out here to Los Angeles where the aficionados know that if you wanna eat Mexican, the places with the "B' health card in the window will have both the best and the worst Mexican food.

OTOH there's even more competition for worst newspaper in America. Right now the Los Angeles Times is in the lead, followed closely by the New York Times and the Washington Post.

As for worst magazine in the USA, Vanity Fair doesn't even come close---Time and Newsweek have lapped the field--twice--in that regard.

PD

And yet they reserve the right to deem news fake.

And over on MSNBC, they actually have Brian Williams -- BRIAN WILLIAMS -- instructing us on what fake news is.

Or maybe the idea is Set a thief to catch a thief.

In the CTC Christmas recipe thread someone said that raspberries combine well with cranberries. Has anyone here tried that? If it's horrible, Trump could feature it in his restaurant. JOKING

matt, deplore me if you must

Obama is simply taking Alinsky to the next level by trying to de-legitimize the Trump administration.

This is going to be a Monkey Wrench Gang effort.

Obama, if the Sultan is correct, wants to keep the OWS/BLM/PajamaPeople dialed up to 11 like the community organizer he is.

The opportunity lies with Trump if he governs smartly. Getting people back to work, focusing on fair and free trade, and being nice is going to kill Obama.

Obama's minions in the media have taken a hammering and the rest of the country looks at the whiners as bitter losers. Let them keep up the tantrums and cut them off at the knees with ridicule and disapprobation.

Maybe Trump can go one better on the apparatchiks by declaring that Trump U was just the first of investigations of the university system for fraud and abuse and then start with the Ivys. Transgender creative arts studies my ass!

Here's another CTC Christmas recipe that Trump could feature in his restaurant, he change the name to Worst Dip in America. (I can hardy wait to make it.)

heldnmut says:

December 16, 2016 at 12:05 pm

Best Dip Ever Recipe (really, really good!)
3 (8 oz) pkgs cream cheese,
1 small pkg lemon jello,
1 can tomato soup.
Mix together over low heat. Use electric mixer to make creamy. Remove from heat.

Add: 1 cup Miracle Whip, 1/3 cup chopped onions, 1/2 cup chopped green & red bell pepper, and 1 cup chopped pecans.

Mix well. Refrigerate overnight. Serve with raw vegetables or crackers.

This is a real crowd-pleaser and I always get asked for the recipe!
Merry Christmas!

I'm loving the difference in feeling and mood since EmoCrats sold out the Republic, by electing B-Ho twice, and now with the 2016 victory by Donald Trump that smashed Hamrod the Clintoona.

Every day he held office, B-Ho managed to validate my fury, indignance and vitriol.

B-Ho validated my abject hostility every time he went golfing. News of his lavish and taxpayer subsidized fundraising, while not accomplishing *DICK* in the meantime as POTUS, would find me shaking my head--- all that cash is doing exactly what? (I guess we’ll be finding out more and more, won’t we?)

Today, I am imagining the Left hating Trump but having to cope with the impacts of what he'll accomplish. And in the process of getting down to business, our new POTUS will be systematically exposing the fraud and “empty chair” Clint Eastwood identified at the 2012 GOP Convention (my doesn’t that seem light years ago!).

There is a difference between blaming one's predecessor for circumstances and exposing the fraud of one's predecessor and his collaborating minions be they in the public or private sectors (think Solyndra and GE).

Make no mistake: we are in for some rough and tough economic times. There will be a lot of pain before Trump's second term. But Trump will solve some of the problems that B-Ho either created or kicked down the road and ignore altogether.

And if he doesn't solve them in the short-term, Trump will initiate longer-term solutions because he is intelligent and he will have advisors around him who understand how the world works as opposed to douche bags like Austen Goolsby or Valerie Jarrett.

In the process, Trump will lay out for the American people why we ended up in the messes we are in, and how the EmoCrat leadership--- the lack of it--- contributed to the severity of it all over the last 25 years since Bubba got control of things.

I believe the lives of EmoCrats are going to change for the worse during POTUS Trump’s ascendancy in office. A lot of EmoCrat voters are going to drop out of the game because they’re weak. People of words are no match for people united in deeds. The EmoCrat currency of words being their bond will be rendered impotent. Chastising conservatives and berating our values in the Trump-era will be like throwing biscuits at a battleship.

And while they express their impotent creed, spouting their shibboleths amongst themselves, they’ll be doing so while getting their butts whupped economically as--

1)their soft money 501 c 3 non-profit gravy trains dry up,

2)they lose their cozy local, state, regional or federalie job security, and

3)fail to understand that what they think is "fake news" about the economy is actually the stuff they should be listening to and acting on.

Buh-bye. The self-loathing of true powerlessness will be palpable. Wulf Blitzer and Jake Tapper will be unable to buy new suits and will appear on TV looking just a little bit bad around the edges. Martha Raddatz and Hoody Woodruff will look all the more haggard. Davey Brooks will become unaffordable overhead at the NYT. And the harlots at “The View” will experience the joys of losing market share. It’s going to get nasty; but, it is all of their own making. Their Berlin has been bombed into the stone age; but, they were all convinced victory was in hand. Sound familiar?

But they are addicted to their cult of personality. And they make asses of themselves now. Still they cling to the nonsense streaming out of the White House and on primetime TV tonight with Fat Oprah interviewing Fat Michelle about their “coolness” and coy “we’ll be back” innuendo. I hope Michelle Obama runs for national office and gets destroyed under scrutiny of angry voters who will have heard by then all about her lavish self-indulgence on the taxpayer dime.

And, all of this B-Ho puffery about what he is going to do to "lead" once he is out of office reminds me of something I used to see all the time playing football and rugby.

During the seasons, the posers who would come out so they could say they were a football player or a rugger--- they'd hide from the coaches during games and make themselves scarce during practices because they didn't like to get hit.

Then at the end of the season they'd sit around and boast about how they were going to train and condition themselves during the offseason so they could "come back better and stronger."

Ya right. Once a coward, always a coward.

I don't perceive many of the EmoCrat voters here in Berkeley as having the guts to stay "active" in the wake of this election.

EmoCrat voters are yammering about "resistance" with that beret-wearing nonsensical, coffeehouse shitscola with which they like to associate themselves(you know, people during war time who actually were willing to catch a bullet for their beliefs).

It's going to be a long 8 years for the Children of Lucifer.

So people like me just skip any MSM source and hit the places like Reddit, Conservative Treehouse, and Infowars.

And then the MSM ridicules us for only reading sources that confirm our opinions. The fact is, I've read publications like the NYT, WaPo, New Republic, and others over the years. As long as the news was straight and the opinions reasonably argued, I was happy to read them. Then they all jumped the shark. It's really only libs that refuse to confront themselves alternative viewpoints.

jimmyk,

Yes I suppose I do read other stuff. It's just that searching for news without having one's intelligence insulted (or worse, your very existence insulted) has gotten to be a bit much.

I post stuff here from other sources like Politico, The Hill, Time (did it today), and others, so it's not like I don't read publications which don't agree with me.

I do get tired of having to read them like Kremlinologists in the Cold War, looking for signs of what's really going on.
