The campaign by Leftist celebrities to persuade Electoral College voters to ignore the election result and install Hillary Clinton as president has failed. And while two of 306 college voters pledge to Donald Trump did vote for someone else, Clinton was deserted by four.

Shame on them all.

Three of Clinton’s deserters wanted Colin Powell instead, and one preferred Faith Spotted Eagle. (I kid you not.)

More evidence that the Left not only tend to be sore losers but totalitarian at heart


Extraordinary. The Left really is the natural home of the totalitarian:

… local media in Pennsylvania reported that each of the state’s 20 electors “have been assigned a plainclothes state police trooper for protection.”

One Pennsylvania elector told Pittsburgh’s Post-Gazette he “estimates he receives 3,000 to 5,000 (anti-Trump) emails, letters, and phone calls a day from as far away as France, Germany, and Australia.”

However, the paper reported, “In interviews last week, a number of electors said there was no chance anyone will defect.”

The threats against electors and the Constitutional transition of power are not limited to the Keystone State.

Fox News reported on Monday that an elector in Michigan who said he’s “been overwhelmed with thousands of emails, Facebook messages, letters and even death threats since the billionaire businessman won the election.”

“I’ve had people that have been talking about putting a bullet in the back of my mouth, burning myself and my family, sending pictures of nooses saying if I don’t vote for Hillary Clinton, they’ll get me,” said Michigan elector Michael Banerian.
