Any Faithless Electors' votes "will be invalidated" or "discarded" on January 6th!
[link to blog.constitutioncenter.org]

"In the end, the House and Senate must agree on any changes made to the Electoral College vote during the in-person Electoral College voting that takes place on December 19 at 50 state capitals and in the District of Columbia. When the official vote certificates are opened by Congress on January 6, the Constitution allows challenges to “faithless electors” who switch their votes, as long as one member of the House and one member of the Senate agree on the same challenge. If a challenge is upheld, the faithless elector’s vote is discarded.

Given that the Republicans control the House and the Senate in the next Congress, an unlikely possible outcome would be that enough faithless electors put Trump’s tally below the 270 votes needed to win the Electoral College vote. In that case, the majority of House and Senate Republicans would invalidate those faithless votes, triggering a run-off contingent election in the House and Senate that Trump and Mike Pence would win."

Any electors that try to switch from Trump to Hillary?

Those will be challenged and invalidated on Jan. 6th by the House and Senate in Repub control.

These are the rules that have been used in past elections.

The best the dems can do is get enough invalid votes to bring Trump below 270 at which point the House once again votes to put him in.

So the drama is not going to happen, folks.

Trump is in!

Invalidating them means no one gets enough votes and Congress decides.

Yes, and then Congress puts Trump in because the House has the votes to do it.

"Under the 12th Amendment, if there is no majority winner in the Electoral College, the House picks the President and the Senate picks the Vice President in contingent elections. The top three Electoral College vote getters for President are put up for the vote in the House; the top two Vice Presidential candidates are voted on in the Senate."

No switch-a-roo votes by any electors for Hillary will actually be allowed. Those will be discarded.

The only drama might be if electors try to keep secret that they were faithless until Jan 6 (when the votes are opened). In other words, we might not know until Jan. 6 if there were any shenanigans.

Oh, we'll know by the morning of December 20. Actually, we already know it now. Every single one of us. But some are still hoping and don't want to admit it, not even to themselves.

However many electors decide to vote against Trump, it won't be enough. He's still going to spell the end of the U.S. and then the whole human race.

I keep saying it, but no one ever listens. It's that fucking false hope in the outside salvation that's keeping people from doing what has to be done. That false hope has to be crushed by any means available. Shaken right out of the people if anybody on this planet is to be able to survive this complete disaster of the human spirit.

Somebody's complaining about being given hope only to have it crushed later? That's your fucking problem, right there, people! That false hope that somebody else is going to save you from yourselves. It's been ripped out of you and put before your very eyes so many times before that it's become sickening to even think about doing it again. And, yet, you still hold onto it like nothing's ever happened.

There is no one out there to save you! If you don't save yourselves, you won't be saved at all! Period!

Get that through those thick skulls of yours just for once. Time is quickly running out.

Great news! The pro-hillary limousine liberals and pro-globalism hypocrites will fail (again) in their efforts to
force their ideology on the citizens of the homeland.
