Change.org Petition to Unseat Donald and Make Hillary President

Analyses:

Change.org is a for-profit enterprise, not an NGO – deceiving supporters by using the .org domain suffix, not .com as it should.

Its business is getting people to sign petitions, along with selling advertising and personal data for added profits.

Best to ignore its petitions altogether, especially a deplorable one now circulating with nearly two million signers – calling for the Electoral College to make war goddess/racketeer/perjurer Hillary president when it votes on December 19 – wanting Trump’s election annulled.

Democracy in America is pure fantasy. Change.org wants it undermined more than already – for its bottom line interests exclusively, taking advantage of state-sponsored and media anti-Trumpism, unrelated to electoral results or anything else.

What it asks for, is the following:

“On December 19, the Electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win.”

“However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine – which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!

We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states’ votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton.”

 

Change.org says Trump is unfit to serve, but Hillary is, citing an array of anti-Trump propaganda reasons.

It claims “24 states fine electors. If (they) vote against their party, they usually pay a fine. And people get mad. But they can vote however they want and there is no legal means to stop them in most states.

Here’s what the National Archives and Records Administration says about Electoral College voting:

Throughout US history, “more than 99 percent of Electors have voted as pledged” – for the winner of the popular vote winner in states they represent.

“There is no Constitutional provision or Federal law requiring Electors to vote in accordance with the popular vote in their States. Some States have such requirements.”

“Note that 48 out of the 50 States award Electoral votes on a winner-takes-all basis (as does the District of Columbia).” Nebraska and Maine alone don’t follow the winner-takes-all rule.

If no candidate receives a majority of Electoral votes, House members choose the president from among the three candidates receiving the most votes. In this case, each state gets one vote.

Denying Trump the office he won, as Change.org urges, would border on insurrection – perhaps enough to create a national convulsion and blood in the streets.

Trump won’t be a people’s president. Neither was any previous leader in US history – not Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln or either Roosevelt. John F. Kennedy came closest – assassinated by the CIA for doing the right thing.

Trump will be inaugurated on January 20 as America’s 45th president. He saved humanity from the possible scourge of nuclear war under Hillary had she defeated him.

His wanting better relations with Russia is the most hopeful sign for perhaps better US geopolitical relations than currently under the nation’s war party – Hillary a leading member as first lady, US senator, secretary of state and two-time presidential aspirant, now politically dead. Let her stay that way!

A final point. Who paid Change.org to circulate its petition – the DNC or Hillary campaign?
