Snowflakes

Via email:

The Electoral College’s voting for Trump was accompanied by shouts of “Shame!” in states across the country. “These unprecedented protests made clear that Donald Trump lost the popular vote and has no real mandate,” explained the Progressive Change Campaign Committee’s Adam Green. “Today’s show of resistance reminded the political world that Trump does not represent the will of the people—and it will embolden Democrats to fight Trump as he sides with big international corporations at the expense of American workers.”

Millions of Americans signed an online petition stating that Mr Trump was unfit for the Oval Office, while anti-Trump protesters gathered at state capitols across the country. In Pennsylvania, more than 200 demonstrators braved sub-zero temperatures, chanting: “No treason, no Trump!'” In Maine, protesters beat drums and waved signs saying: “Don’t let Putin Pick Our President.” In Madison, Wisconsin, demonstrators cried.

  1. The left does love its fuckin’ rallies doesn’t it.

    A whole 200 pukes braved the snow to protest about a democratic vote.

    Although America’s real disgrace is that 60 odd million–give or take 3 million illegals–voted for one of the most corrupt and evil women ever to have lived.

  2. “Today’s show of resistance reminded the political world that Trump does not represent the will of the people…”

    ‘The world’ being ‘our friends, family (that haven’t disowned us) and fellow SJWs’. The real world just got on with life and didn’t even notice.

  3. Sides with big international corporations? Trump received $1m from the people in the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, while Clinton received $21m.

    Trump owes less favours to corporations than any president in living memory.

  4. The sheer decadence of protesting a free election that didn’t go your way.

    In some countries people risk their lives to vote, or can’t vote, or can vote but only for the regime’s candidate(s).

  5. “Millions of Americans signed an online petition”

    My bet – over half of these people didn’t vote in the actual election.

  6. In Madison, Wisconsin, demonstrators cried.

    Well, to look on the bright side, Donald Trump’s success could help lower the salt levels in citizens who eat too many crumpets.

    @Rob: quite! The BBC was going bigly on this no-drilling story this morning without being able to spot that this was just the latest bit of undemocratic and yet entirely redundant gesture politics from a man in a pet who has struggled to get beyond gesture politics and inertia for eight long years.

  7. TN-Trump can undo anything the Scrawny Jug Eared Cunt enacts.

    Including any pardon for Killery. I don’t think Obo is inclined to pardon the Cow cos he doesn’t like either of the Toxic Two and he can’t be dumb enough to think that there is any chance in Hell she will be able to carry forward his tinpot “legacy”.

    However as much as he would like to see the Toxics decked out in matching orange overalls , Obo must also know that if all the shit those two are (and have been) into ever got out then it would be a huuugge black eye for the scum of the left in general. That is the reason he might pardon them/her.

    However considering that America has avoided electing a vile bitch who was set to use EOs to undermine and destroy the 1st and 2nd Amendments , I see no reason that The Donald can’t un-pardon any pardon handed out.

    Hell he should have Obo investigated for crimes himself. Collar the lot as Churchill put it.

    That made me laugh.

  9. Surely a pardon can’t be granted until they’ve been convicted? Unless the CIA is going to work very quickly over Christmas to get them convicted on some feeble charge just to allow Obama could grant a pardon.

  10. ‘The Electoral College’s voting for Trump was accompanied by shouts of “Shame!” in states across the country.’

    Nah, just 5 people in Pennsylvania.

  11. “These unprecedented protests made clear that Donald Trump lost the popular vote and has no real mandate,” explained the Progressive Change Campaign Committee’s Adam Green.

    These people really don’t know how their own country works.

    For example – Trump won the popular vote in my state. And all the states are nominally independent entities. So should my state get screwed over because Clinton won a small majority in a couple of states on the other side of the country?

    Because a couple of blue cities in a couple of blue states voted for her en masse the rest of the country – all us rural deplorable bitter clingers should just suck it up or something?

    Plus – did this guy ignore the recent EC vote? I imagine he’s just discounting it because the only way Clinton could have lost her *8* EC votes (yeah, I still count the ones that got changed by procedural shenanigans – I consider that the EC is supposed to be an independent check on the proles, whether or not I agree with the concept) compared to Trump! losing 2.

    I ain’t by any means happy Trumps! in office, but by no means is there anything irregular with this election.

  12. and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment. — Article II Section 2

    There is no undo on Presidential pardons in the Constitution. Since the Constitutional Convention of 1787 pardons can be used before a conviction, which has been expanded to cover uncharged crimes(see Zimmet, ”The Law of Pardon,” 1974-75 Annual Survey of American Law, page 179; ”The Nixon Pardon,” Connecticut Law Review, 1974, Volume 7, page 56). Accepting a pardon is an admission of guilt(Burdick v. United States). Pardons can be rejected(United States v. Wilson).

    Ecks,

    If Obama were to pardon Clinton there is nothing that Trump can do short of a Constitutional amendment. Her acceptance would be an admission of guilt so you should actually want the pardon.

    Richard,

    I’ve covered your point.

  13. LY–Errr….No.

    Nobody has done so up to now. That’s all.

    Just like nobody has tried to undermine your Constirtution with EOs –until the next leftist who does. Which would have been Killery.

    To say that an un-pardon is not possible w’out etc. etc is simply naïve.

    You are obviously not a lawyer never mind a lawyer on the make.

  14. BTW the Cow admitting her guilt but ducking the …like …you know…actual fucking punishment is neither use nor ornament.

  15. Thank you LY.

    How specific does the pardon have to be? Can he just pardon Clinton for everything, or does he have to list all the things she is, by accepting it, accepting guilt for? If so, if he misses one then they can get her for that?

  16. Okay, now I want to be president. So I can pardon Hillary for crimes against humanity, bestiality, and pedophilia.

  17. Richard,

    Theoretically a blanket pardon can be issued for all past crimes. With precedents we could then claim that Clinton has admitted guilt to every federal crime. While I hope no president ever goes this route it would be fun winning the counter-suit against a libel claim.

    Ecks,

    Pardons are defined in the Constitution. Congress has zero power to change this and the courts have limited powers of interpretation. Theoretically it would be possible to pack the courts with judges that would support an anti-pardon but then we’d have much bigger problems.

    Executive orders are not specifically a left problem. I’m sure we agree that Obama has abused this power more than he should. At the same time he has abused it far less than Bush II, Clinton, Bush I, Reagan, Ford, Nixon, or Johnson. No one comes close to FDR though.

    Gamecock,

    Sadly it doesn’t appear that there is a specific federal bestiality law. The pedophilia statue is 18 USC § 2251 so we can use that. Crimes against humanity is rather vague so I’m sure their are several dozen laws we could use.

    Note: It was nice to get an opportunity to use the key commands for §. I finally found the way to use special characters© on my keyboard, on this Linux version, last night and need to memorize™ some codes. I do ♥ ☭, which uses the CCCP code. This will save me a lot of time on commonly used symbols like ¢ and £.

  18. Trump campaigned to win the Electoral Collage vote. That is the system in operation and the system that he campaigned to win. If the election had been a popular vote he would have campaigned to win the popular vote and the result would have been different. Most likely, still a Trump win. And then all the snowflakes would be protesting the unfairness of the election system that resulted in Trump winning, probably by saying “oh, but he won less than half of the states!”

    Whatever system is in operation the snowflakes complain that it is unfair and biased whenever the “wrong” people win using the system that exists at the time.

  19. Well said jgh.

    I’m not sure if Trump could have actually won the popular vote but it really doesn’t matter. He played the rigged game correctly and is our President. It’s not like we’re playing horseshoes or hand grandes.

    I just hope we weren’t playing global thermonuclear war. A nice game of chess is far preferable.

  20. Well then LY I guess justice would haver to be served by the Toxic Two falling victim to those mystery robbers who kill but don’t take anything.

    After all they do seem to have had quite a few of such types around their lives over the years.

  21. @jgh

    And further, voter turnout would almost certainly have been different without the electoral college system. If you support Trump in California or Hillary in Utah there’s little point in voting, but for a directly elected president different considerations would apply.
