Electoral college electors meet today December 19, 2016 to vote for president and vice president, Six Certificates of Vote paired with six Certificates of Ascertainment, January 6, 2017 congress meets to count and certify electoral votes

“”My good friend Ann here actually got some sort of irritant in one of the letter. My son had his car vandalized,” said Mike Delk, President of the NC Electoral College. “Other people have received threats, attempted bribes.”

But the electors say they are not swayed by these actions. All 15 said they will cast their votes for Trump which will go toward the 270 elector votes required. Trump’s nationwide total is 306.

The members said they have a message for those protesting the results.

“It really shows a lack of understanding of our democracy,” said Dr. Glenn Pinckney, Secretary of the NC Electoral College. “It shows an honest lack and disrespect.””…WTVD

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”…Abraham Lincoln

THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

“December 19, 2016

The Electors meet in their state and vote for President and Vice President on separate ballots. The electors record their votes on six “Certificates of Vote,” which are paired with the six remaining Certificates of Ascertainment.

The electors sign, seal, and certify six sets of electoral votes. A set of electoral votes consists of one Certificate of Ascertainment and one Certificate of Vote. These are distributed immediately as follows:

  • one set to the President of the Senate (the Vice President) for the official count of the electoral votes in January;
  • two packages to the Secretary of State in the state where the electors met—one is an archival set that becomes part of the public record of the Secretary of State’s office and the other is a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes;
  • two packages to the Archivist—one is an archival set that becomes part of the permanent collection at the National Archives and Records Administration and the other is a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes; and
  • one set to the presiding judge in the district where the Electors met—this is also a reserve set that is subject to the call of the President of the Senate to replace missing or incomplete electoral votes.

December 28, 2016

Electoral votes (the Certificates of Vote) must be received by the President of the Senate and the Archivist no later than nine days after the meeting of the electors. States face no legal penalty for failure to comply.

If votes are lost or delayed, the Archivist may take extraordinary measures to retrieve duplicate originals.

On or Before January 3, 2017

The Archivist and/or representatives from the Office of the Federal Register meet with the Secretary of the Senate and the Clerk of the House in late December or early January. This is, in part, a ceremonial occasion. Informal meetings may take place earlier.

January 6, 2017

The Congress meets in joint session to count the electoral votes. Congress may pass a law to change this date.

The Vice President, as President of the Senate, presides over the count and announces the results of the Electoral College vote. The President of the Senate then declares which persons, if any, have been elected President and Vice President of the United States.

If a State submits conflicting sets of electoral votes to Congress, the two Houses acting concurrently may accept or reject the votes. If they do not concur, the votes of the electors certified by the Governor of the State on the Certificate of Ascertainment would be counted in Congress.

If no Presidential candidate wins 270 or more electoral votes, a majority, the 12th Amendment to the Constitution provides for the House of Representatives to decide the Presidential election. If necessary the House would elect the President by majority vote, choosing from the three candidates who received the greatest number of electoral votes. The vote would be taken by state, with each state having one vote.

If no Vice Presidential candidate wins 270 or more electoral votes, a majority, the 12th Amendment provides for the Senate to elect the Vice President. If necessary, the Senate would elect the Vice President by majority vote, choosing from the two candidates who received the greatest number of electoral votes. The vote would be taken by state, with each Senator having one vote.

If any objections to the Electoral College vote are made, they must be submitted in writing and be signed by at least one member of the House and one Senator. If objections are presented, the House and Senate withdraw to their respective chambers to consider their merits under procedures set out in federal law.

January 20, 2017 at Noon—Inauguration Day

The President-elect takes the Oath of Office and becomes the President of the United States.”

  1. “We have decided that the electoral college will serve as ministers of the will of the people of North Carolina,”… elector Mark Delk

  2. AND NOW……….
    ………….Mr.Krugman of the NYT has implied that Donald Trump wants another 9-11 attack on America. Krugman is OBVIOUSLY one of the SICKEST individuals at the NYT. The only person wanting another such attack is the PIECE OF MANURE who is SPOUTING HIS INSANITY. Yet it is completely possible that such an attack might be perpetrated but to imply that Donald Trump WANTS it to happen is total LUNACY. This seems to be the mentality of a LOT OF NYT WRITERS which is most likely the very reason why the NYT BALONEY MILL teeters perilously on bankruptcy.
    HEY NYT………..YOU MIGHT TRY PUBLISHING THE TRUTH FOR A CHANGE

  3. THE LUNATICS………
    ………….In Harrisburg PA are standing in SUB ZERO weather RAVING, RANTING, FOAMING AT THE MOUTH, and several who went totally crazy were arrested. They were protesting the ELECTORAL COLLEGE. In actuality the more such lunatics RAVE, and RANT, the more determined will be the ELECTORS to vote as promised.

  4. AND……….
    ……….The Russian ambassador to Turkey has been shot dead by a GOATHERDER PIECE OF SHI#, AND SCREAMING “ALUHA AKBAR” AS HE FIRED THE SHOTS. there IS EVEN CRYSTAL CLEAR PHOTOGRAPS OF HIM HOLDING THE GUN.

  5. SO FAR……….
    …………The voting of Pennsylvania electors has gone off perfectly and without incident. The foaming at the mouth protesters have gone home where they can rave and rant without reprisal.

  11. AND ………..
    ………….it appears that despite the FOAMING AT THE MOUTH LUNATIC PROTESTERS,(now probably frozen) are losing their halfwitted protests. Trump now needs only 14 votes for 270.

  13. TRUMP TWO VOTES AWAY.

  14. CW
    Do they have to wait until all votes are in?

  15. Breaking News Trump is the 45 President!!!

  16. That’s 45Th

  17. Trump is POTUS elect. Now he needs to give the public the truth, and expose the traitors. Drain the swamp, pursue the guilty, close the borders to illegal immigration, and open Obama’s records. Time for everyone to know the truth. I can handle the truth, but I am certain the liberals and the DNC can’t.

    Pete

  18. Little off the subject–but maybe it can go towards finding the truth over the last eight years. Agree that the libs and DNC won’t be happy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jk3KRxTfkLM

  19. Pete………….
    ………….On January 20 we will begin to learn whether we have all been conned, or whether GOD has returned. The magnitude of what Trump will face will probably require nothing less than a GOD to fix. The damage which has been done to America is so great that it is going to require a lifetime to repair. It will require re education of many young people, and a completely revised educational system beginning at kindergarten up through our public colleges. It will NOT BE EASY.
    Hopefully all of the people responsible for what has been perpetrated against our country will be faced with answering for their PERVERSION of our country………AT ALL LEVELS.

    oldsailor84,
    I would start with the truth!

    America has been under a terrorist attack for 8 years, and the terrorists captured the presidency, when nobody defended the Constitution except the people!

  21. Bob Strauss……….
    ………Excellent choice………PUBLIC APATHY grew out of the combination of perverted, and otherwise deteriorating education, a general lack of interest in government, lack of drive, increasing illiteracy, the ingesting of drugs, and pornography………..all of which collectively has totally changed the mental quality of today’s adults both young and old. I believe that many of such folks now possess only single digit intelligence quotients, and matching vocabularies.

  22. The best comment of the day came from the Elector from Wyoming: “Go ahead and threaten me and my family to my face, and I’ll turn your head into a canoe.” I’d like to meet this guy :).

    Congratulations to our 45th President; 44 is irrelevant now, and always has been.

    It will be a VERY merry Christmas!!!

  23. Bob Strauss………
    ………..I hasten to add that fortunately NOT ALL of our adults are MENTALLY TWISTED MORONS. It will be the DUTY of those who have recognized early on what was happening, and have taken steps to keep the apathy from taking over their own personalities, to RE EDUCATE those who have been transformed into morons with one track minds.

  24. Suek………
    ……….did you receive my email?

  25. Suek…………
    ………..I have been giving a great deal of thought to changing my IP. There has been intermittent problems with the quality of my email service which I pay for. As a result I have lost several financial transactions. I have tried to obtain the help of my IP to overcome the problems but they seem to reflect a general attitude of indifference. So it is probably time to LOOK FOR ANOTHER IP.

  26. GW,

    I got the response to the card; is that what you mean? I haven’t gotten anything further if you sent a regular e-mail. If there was another e-mail, can you resend?

    I use two ISPs; one for e-mail (because I like the setup) and another for Internet. It costs me a bit more, but I like the speed of cable; don’t like their e-mail.

    Not sure what’s available in your area, but a little research will get you what you need.

  27. AND………..
    ……….the “HOPEY CHANGEY” bullshi# will come to a screeching halt……….as the SWAMP IS DRAINED. har har

  28. oldsailor84+

    I guess the fat lady (Mzzzzzzzzzz Piggy) won’t be singing now that Trump has won. Perhaps she needs a drink or two.

    ………..AND NOW SLICK WILLY blames James Comey for his POS wife’s election loss;
    HEY WILLY I HAVE A SUGGESTION FOR YOU……..MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRY PLACING THE BLAME WHERE IT RIGHTFULLY BELONGS……. ON THE AMERICAN VOTERS WHO HAVE HAD THEIR BELLIES FULL OF RAPISTS,AND PATHOLOGICAL LIARS AS LEADERS OF OUR COUNTRY. OH YES, AND ANOTHER BIG REASON FOR YOUR WIFE’S LOSS IS THAT SHE CALLED HER OWN POTENTIAL VOTERS DEPLORABLES…..I PERSONALLY BELIEVE THAT HER OWN WORDS SEALED HER DOOM. I WOULD FURTHER SUGGEST THAT SINCE BOTH OF YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE SOOOOOOOO IMPORRRRRRTANT YOU SHOULD TAKE THE ACID TEST TO ONCE AND FOR ALL MEASURE YOUR LEVEL OF IMPORTANCE FOR ALL TO SEE. THIS TEST IS REALLY EASY IT ENTAILS STICKING YOUR FINGER IN A BOWL OF WATER THEN AFTER 10 SECONDS YOU REMOVE YOUR FINGER THEN OBSERVE THE SIZE OF THE HOLE LEFT IN THE WATER.(CLUE) THE LARGER THE HOLE THE MORE IMPORRRRRRRTANT YOU ARE. HAVE A GREAT DAY!

    THE DEAF ITALIAN BOOKKEEPER

    A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Guido, has cheated him out of $10,000,000.00 His bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he got the job in the first place.
    It was assumed that Guido would hear nothing so he would not have to testify in court.
    When the Godfather goes to confront Guido about his missing
    $10 million, he takes along his lawyer who knows sign language.

    The Godfather tells the lawyer,
    “Ask him where the money is!”
    The lawyer, using sign language, asks Guido, “Where’s the money”
    Guido signs back,
    “I don’t know what you are talking about.”
    The lawyer tells the Godfather,
    “He says he doesn’t know
    what you’re talking about.”
    The Godfather pulls out a pistol,
    puts it to Guido’s head and says,
    “Ask him again or I’ll kill him!”
    The lawyer signs to Guido,
    “He’ll kill you if you don’t tell him.”
    Guido trembles and signs,
    “OK! You win! The money is in a brown
    briefcase, buried behind the shed at my cousin Bruno’s house”.
    The Godfather asks the lawyer,
    “What did he say?”
    The lawyer replies,
    “He says fxxk you, you don’t have the bxlls to pull the trigger.”

  33. He’s getting away with it…

    By Allen West9:44am December 20, 2016

    Folks, I’d like you take a moment and see if this rings any alarm bells for y’all.

    U.S. Code 2339A is titled “Providing Material Support to Terrorists,” and this is how the “offense” is defined:
    (a)Offense.—
    Whoever provides material support or resources or conceals or disguises the nature, location, source, or ownership of material support or resources, knowing or intending that they are to be used in preparation for, or in carrying out, a violation of section 32, 37, 81, 175, 229, 351, 831, 842(m) or (n), 844(f) or (i), 930(c), 956, 1091, 1114, 1116, 1203, 1361, 1362, 1363, 1366, 1751, 1992, 2155, 2156, 2280, 2281, 2332, 2332a, 2332b, 2332f, 2340A, or 2442 of this title, section 236 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (42 U.S.C. 2284), section 46502or 60123(b) of title 49, or any offense listed in section 2332b(g)(5)(B) (except for sections 2339A and 2339B) or in preparation for, or in carrying out, the concealment of an escape from the commission of any such violation, or attempts or conspires to do such an act, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both, and, if the death of any person results, shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life. A violation of this section may be prosecuted in any Federal judicial district in which the underlying offense was committed, or in any other Federal judicial district as provided by law.

    Furthermore, “(1)the term “material support or resources” means any property, tangible or intangible, or service, including currency or monetary instruments or financial securities, financial services…”

  34. “Franklin Graham: It wasn’t Russians who intervened in election, ‘it was God'”

    “I don’t have any scientific information. I don’t have a stack of emails to read to you,” Graham told the crowd in Mobile, Ala., according to the Washington Examiner. “But I have an opinion: I believe it was God. God showed up. He answered the prayers of hundreds of thousands of people across this land who had been praying for this country.”

    http://www.greensboro.com/ap/state/franklin-graham-it-wasn-t-russians-who-intervened-in-election/article_aec027b1-3cbe-5d45-a3be-77065a6a38c5.html

    Amen.

  35. The Democrats lost because the Democrat party is controlled by a small group of globalists who rigged things so that the Democrat voters had no real choice. They anointed Hillary and had a sham primary. Hillary was not popular with a lot of Democrat voters. If the Democrat party wants to win again, they are going to have to let the voters do the choosing, not the elite party leadership. They must get rid of super delegates. The DNC and their media accomplices must stop secretly supporting a favorite candidate. This is the same reason the Republicans lost in 2008 and 2012. The leadership, with the help of the media, engineered the primary so that unpopular candidates like McCain and Romney were nominated instead of keeping their hands of the scale and letting the voters pick the nominee.

  36. Something’s not sitting right regarding the Ovomits staying in DC after they’ve been thrown out of the White House; I don’t think it’s because of the girls’ schooling.

    Usually, former Presidents hightail it out of there, but this fake family is staying. Why? And where’s bat-face Jarrett; she’s been curiously silent for quite a while.

    We know they’re all furious that Trump won; could they be planning to undermine his presidency by trying to set up some sort of shadow government? The players are all there, and the place is large enough to be a pseudo White House. They’re planning something.

    This is why I hope that Trump will pursue an investigation of this fraud and his minions. They need to be gone. For good!

  37. “Almost 40% of young Americans were living with their parents, siblings or other relatives in 2015, the largest percentage since 1940, according to an analysis of census data by real estate tracker Trulia.

    Despite a rebounding economy and recent job growth, the share of those between the ages of 18 and 34 doubling up with parents or other family members has been rising since 2005. Back then, before the start of the last recession, roughly one out of three were living with family.

    The trend runs counter to that of previous economic cycles, when after a recession-related spike, the number of younger Americans living with relatives declined as the economy improved.”

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-21/number-millennials-living-home-mom-reaches-75-year-high

    “Despite a rebounding economy and recent job growth”

    Let me rectify that statement.

    “Despite the media portrayal of a rebounding economy and recent job growth”

    Obviously if that were true, we would not have 40% of millennials living at home as we did in a similar economic scenario, the Great Depression.

  38. CW………….
    …………there is at least some of these people who are staying home because they can’t start a new job at $20.00 per hour. While these people might be skilled people they are going to have to get it through their GOURDS that it is probable that they will need to start over, and possibly re train, or re school for another field of endeavor………….otherwise they may never find another job. The burden lies upon them to get out and scratch the ground. Nobody is going to do it for them. In addition I believe that many of the DISPLACED high dollar earners are going to be facing their dilemma for a very long time. Not even Donald Trump has a MAGIC WAND with which to INSTANTLY create millions of jobs OUT OF THIN AIR. It is going to be painfully SLOW.

  39. …FOOD FOR THOUGHT…………
    ……..Franklin Delano Roosevelt had another reason for entering the war………it was to BREAK THE BACK OF THE DEPRESSION which lasted right up to WW2.

  40. CW………….
    ………..do you remember the Waltons which was a television program which portrayed a family in the South with 3 generations living under the same roof? I personally know of a family that has 4 generations under the same roof. They all live in an old farmhouse that has 5 bedrooms.

  41. AND……….
    …………..I remember many families during the late 1930s who also had multiple generations living in older 2 and 3 bedroom “arts and crafts” style homes. (sort of like a Cape Cod but having a front porch which shared a common roof with the house)……….and many of the homes of that era were heated by older gravity coal furnaces.

  42. I loved the Waltons.
