Former Attorney General Eric Holder wants to get rid of the Electoral College.
Holder recently tweeted that the Electoral College is a “vestige of the past”, “undemocratic”, and “forces candidates to ignore majority of the voters and campaign in a small number of states”.
Holder’s Tweet was in response to a Washington Post article covering the rise of the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact—the latest push to destroy the Electoral College.
11 states and the District of Columbia have hopped onboard this bandwagon, which would award the 2020 presidential election to whoever wins the popular vote. However, the catch is that it will only be activated if states representing at least 270 Electoral College votes approve the law.
The Constitution delegates to the states the power to determine how electoral votes are awarded during national elections. Currently, most states award electoral votes on a winner-take-all basis, which gives all of their electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the most votes within the state.
The move to abolish the Electoral College came in response to Hilary Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 elections, where she won the popular vote but lost in the Electoral College, where it really counts. This is nothing news, as Democrats found themselves in similar scenario in 2000 when George W. Bush defeated Al Gore in a similar fashion.
Democrats argue that the Electoral College is undemocratic and outdated, but this could not be further from the truth. The Electoral College is one of the more far-sighted policies that the Founders crafted.
If globalist Democrats had their way, the abolition of the Electoral College would give disproportionate power to major urban centers like Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York. Presidential campaigns would be focused on these areas, while the rest of America would be ignored.
The arrival of the Progressive State in the early 20th century, which established central banking, income taxation, and the military-industrial complex, has already put us on the road to centralization. The status quo of big government we live under benefits the few in Washington DC and politically-connected urban centers. The rest of America, however, suffers as a result.
So it’s small wonder why Donald Trump won his election when considering that he made it a point to campaign in so-called “flyover states” which have been negatively impacted by the political class’s power-grabbing schemes.
Getting rid of the Electoral College will only make matters worse and accelerate this trend toward globalism.
This is as undemocratic as it gets.
Democrats will pay lip service to the democracy, but when they obtain a result that doesn’t align with their agenda, they show their true colors as political oligarchs.
Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) January 14, 2021
Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
