The Electoral College Is a
National Security Threat

Politico, by Matthew Olsen & Benjamin Haas

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 9/20/2017 1:01:17 PM

In Federalist No. 68, his pseudonymous essay on “The Mode of Electing the President,” Alexander Hamilton wrote that the Electoral College could shield the United States “from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” (Snip) Hamilton and his colleagues never could have envisioned a year like 2016, when an enemy state—Russia—was able to manipulate America’s election process with stunning effectiveness. But it’s clear the national security rationale for the Electoral College is outdated and therefore it should be retired. Simply put, it enables foreign powers to more easily pierce the very shield Hamilton imagined

Comments:
I have never seen such a reckless, irresponsible article. What is extremely disturbing and disconcerting is that it is written by two individuals from the intelligence community. Olsen was appointed by GWB in the justice department and went on to work for Holder and Obama. Link below. Haas hates Trump as is show in the link below. Both of these individuals are beyond biased and it is breathtaking that if they are allegedly so intelligent would ever make such outrageous commentary.

Contd. FTA: "But what if the national popular vote determined the president instead of the Electoral College? No voter would be more electorally powerful than another. It would be more difficult for a foreign entity to sway many millions of voters scattered across the country than concentrated groups of tens of thousands of voters in just a few states. And it would be more difficult to tamper with voting systems on a nationwide basis....."

No voter would be more electorally powerful than another? Seriously? Those are some of the most egregious, reckless lies I have ever seen. We all know that if the EC was eliminated that California and the eastern corridor would determine our president. It would also guarantee voter fraud unlike what we have ever seen.

It´s no wonder so many of us are concerned about the fate of our country. There has never been more who have stepped forward in attempt to totally destroy it´s creation. An extremely dangerous change like this would turn us unto a county unlike any other dictatorship in the world where one party would be in power. It´s bad enough now!

Look at the name, fools. United States of America, not United Citizens of America.

The States get together in the Electoral College to elect the President.

Before that happens the individual, separate States hold a vote to decide how that the State´s Electors will vote. Each state should be equal to each other state, and it is actually unfair that California has so many electoral votes. IMO, it should be one vote for each state, but what we have is a compromise which helps the smaller states, even though the large states still have a huge advantage.

But people are so ignorant of the basics of the history and workings of our government that they say and think all sorts of foolish, uninformed and misinformed things.

No, the EC is not a national security threat.

There are 538 EC votes.
3 from DC
100 U.S. Senators
435 U.S. House seat districts

No state should have winner-take-all, because it is actual voter disenfranchising voters who´s district voted Dem or Rep, but the state´s overall voters ended up electing the other side, then having their EC vote allocated to that winner of the state´s popular vote.

Allocate each of the 435 and 3 DC, by winner of the popular vote in each EC district.
It would likely motivate some who decide to sit on the sidelines to vote since they would now realize their vote would count in CA, if they are a Republican, and noting their district could be allocated to the GOP nominee.

Then have the 100 US Senator votes allocated by the desire of the US Senator occupying that office for that election.

No more targeting 5-6 "swing" states, which Hillary, BTW, knew and played that game, but lost.

Oh, give it up. The U.S.S.R. has been influencing American politics for many decades, by funding leftist front groups. The KGB funded American groups opposed to our involvement in WWII, until Germany invaded Russia. The KGB funded leftist groups to protest VietNam. None of this ever bothered Americans, because they were never told about it by the MSM.

Now suddenly Russian influence is something terrible. Just another narrative. If elections were determined by the popular vote, the left would just commit more vote fraud and import more illegal aliens, as they have been doing for decades.

Matthew Olsen & Benjamin Haas are a threat to National Security. The Electoral College has preserved it for over 237 years. The Politico has determined a solid conclusion on Russia manipulated our election process with stunning effectiveness. They should share their evidence with the investigations that have failed to find any such conclusion.

More Politico insanity.

Before the election, Hillary was aghast when Trump suggested the election process might be manipulated. It was. Many illegals and motor voters voted for Hillary. It may have flipped the NH Presidential and and Senate races.

And yet, sore loser Hillary still lost. She, more than most, should know HOW a president gets elected. She had no complaints before the election. Most liberals were OK with the electoral college because they were arrogantly confident they would win.

Now it´s whine, whine, whine all the time.

Liberals are the real threat to this nation. BO did just about EVERYTHING wrong. Trump has reversed significant amounts of the damage. If he had a Congress that had any guts he would have done far more. But the process by which he was elected worked as it should.

I might be wrong, but this could be the same Matthew Olsen who was a BO tool in a very powerful position. Powerful if he used his position against Americans instead of the enemy and that seems like his cup of tea. There is a Benjamin Haas whose idea of being a good American is burning the flag. He made the news at LSU for that kind of behavior. Both utter bottom dwellers.

Trump Transition Team Emails…

There is widespread opinion that many of the officials enlisted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller are ethically challenged. Critics point to Mueller team members like DOJ Attorney Andrew Weissman, Jeannie Rhee and Aaron Zebley as specific examples of players within Mueller’s investigative team who have a history of gross ethics violations and also carry jaw-dropping conflicts-of-interest. (Snip) It is not our intention to undermine the best round-up of usurpers in history; but rather our ongoing CTH effort is to remind everyone they are living inside history as it is being made. Look around, this is exciting and phenomenal stuff.

Exclusive — A lawyer for the Trump presidential transition team is accusing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office of inappropriately obtaining transition documents as part of its Russia probe, including confidential attorney-client communications, privileged communications and thousands of emails without their knowledge. In a letter obtained by Fox News and sent to House and Senate committees on Saturday, the transition team’s attorney alleges “unlawful conduct” by the career staff at the General Services Administration in handing over transition documents to the special counsel’s office.

There’s bad news and there’s worse news for President Donald Trump in new polls released this week. First comes the latest round of polling showing that Trump is the most unpopular president on record. Just 32% of respondents to a new Associated Press-NORC poll said they approved of the job Trump is doing as president, while an overwhelming 67% they disapproved. Among those who don’t think the president is doing a good job, more than half say they “strongly disapprove” of his work. The poll — conducted earlier this month — also suggests that nearly 70% of Americans believe the United States is “heading

There is strong circumstantial evidence that an insidious plot unprecedented in American history was hatched within the FBI and the Obama Justice Department to help elect Hillary Clinton and defeat Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. (Snip) Such a plot would show that partisans within the FBI and the Justice Department, driven by personal animus and a sense of political righteousness, surreptitiously conspired to subvert electoral democracy itself in our country. As of now, we have no proof beyond a reasonable doubt of such a plot. But we have very strong circumstantial evidence.
