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Democrats argue that the Electoral College is undemocratic and outdated, but this could not be further from the truth.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.

U.S. Intelligence Reports that China Hid the Extent of the Wuhan Virus Outbreak
According to a Bloomberg report, China has not been forthcoming about the extent of the Wuhan Virus in its country.
It has apparently, under-reported “both total cases and deaths it’s suffered from the disease, the U.S. intelligence community concluded in a classified report to the White House, according to three U.S. officials.”
The officials requested to stay anonymous because the report is confidential and declined to give further details about its contents. The main takeaway though is “that China’s public reporting on cases and deaths is intentionally incomplete. Two of the officials said the report concludes that China’s numbers are fake.”
The White House received this report last week, according to one of the aforementioned officials.
The pandemic originated in China’s Hubei province in late 2019, but the country has officially reported only about 82,000 cases and 3,300 deaths, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University. America, on the other hand, has 189,000 cases and more than 4,000 deaths which is allegedly the largest publicly and reported outbreak in the world.
“The reality is that we could have been better off if China had been more forthcoming,” Vice President Mike Pence said on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 on CNN. “What appears evident now is that long before the world learned in December that China was dealing with this, and maybe as much as a month earlier than that, that the outbreak was real in China.”
China imposed one of the strictest lockdowns of all nations afflicted by this pandemic. However, the Chinese government has not been transparent about its recording strategies and is constantly changing its methods for recording cases.
Republicans have been skeptical of the numbers coming out of Beijing.
“The claim that the United States has more coronavirus deaths than China is false,” declared Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse. “Without commenting on any classified information, this much is painfully obvious: The Chinese Communist Party has lied, is lying, and will continue to lie about coronavirus to protect the regime.”
U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has called on China to be transparent about their outbreaks.
“This data set matters,” he said during a news conference in Washington on March 31, 2020. The development of medical treatments and public-health measures to combat the virus “so that we can save lives depends on the ability to have confidence and information about what has actually transpired,” he asserted.
The Wuhan Virus pandemic illustrates the pitfalls of globalism and global integration at all costs.
When authoritarian regimes like China are treated like equals on the international stage in terms of trade and migration, Western countries could be susceptible to demographic displacement, national security breaches, viral outbreaks, and corporate espionage.
This sage may be the wake-up call the West needs in trying to socially distance itself from China.
