“Democracy for us, not for them.”
This is not gossip.
This is not a drill.
This is real.
This is happening.
Just days before Donald Trump is officially and finally elected by the Electoral College, Lame Duck Obama, the DNC head honchos, and the CIA are staging a coup in the Electoral College. This idea is so arrogant and so dangerous that even liberals acknowledge it.
The goal is the same as always: “Never Trump!”
The challenge is also the same: if he doesn’t get 270 official electoral votes on December 19, he will not be the officially elected President.
The House of Representatives will then choose a President from the possible candidates: Trump, Clinton, or the insidious CIA spook known as Evan McMullin.
As Zero Hedge reports, on Monday the Clinton campaign, by way of its top political adviser John Podesta, promoted the effort by members of the Electoral College to request an intelligence briefing on foreign intervention in the presidential election.
Podesta said the ten electors’ open letter to the CIA “raises very grave issues involving our national security,” and added that “we support their efforts to have their questions addressed.” In other words, like the snakes in the grass that they are, the Clintons are operating undercover to give the 538 electors classified national security briefings so they will believe the CIA’s claims that Putin helped Trump win. As always, Hillary Clinton is reckless and selfish with America’s national security.
If only 37 electors are persuaded NOT to vote FOR Trump, he will only get 269 electoral votes of the 306 he won in the general election–and he won’t be officially elected. On the other hand, if 38 electors are persuaded to vote for Hillary, her 232 electoral votes will reach the critical 270 needed to become president.
This is all nonsense of course, since, during Monday’s press briefing the White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explicitly stated that “US intel agencies didn’t detect any malicious cyberactivity that interfered with the casting and counting of ballots” on Nov. 8.”
Looks like the Never Trump forces are getting their scripts mixed up again.
Podesta and the wider Clinton apparatus look to be one step away from calling for an all-out Electoral College coup https://t.co/6nGoCVNeZf

As the Daily Mail reports, Robert Baer, a former CIA operative and author of See No Evil (the basis for the movie Syriana) “has called for a new round of voting after intelligence agencies concluded that Russia interfered to make sure Donald Trump got into the White House.”
Baer appeared on CNN on Sunday and managed to say this with a straight face: “If we had been caught interfering in European elections or Asian elections or anywhere in the world, those countries would call for new elections. And any democracy would.”
This is false, since Obama himself meddled in the Brexit election, but the U.K. went ahead with the results. When Baer was asked about the “feasibility” of having another presidential election, he said that “the legitimacy of the government was in doubt” while conceding that he wasn’t sure how it would work constitutionally.
The only people in doubt about the transition to a Trump presidency are sore losers like Baer and the DNC.
Baer said he “deeply disturbed” by the
fact idea that “the Russians” interfered in our election. That’s why he “would like to see the evidence.” What evidence? “If the evidence is there, I don’t see any other way than to vote again,” he concluded.
So, despite the White House and the Washington Post saying there is no evidence of Russian meddling, he wants to expose classified information just to see “if” there is evidence. What could it hurt? It’s just an attempt to reverse the entire political process in America.
This is yet another absurd bit of arrogance on the part of the CIA and its fellow travelers.
To see why, let’s briefly review the CIA’s history of meddling in–and sometimes directly overthrowing–foreign governments, all in the name of “fostering democracy,” wouldn’t you know it.
1953: the CIA forced Mohammad Mossadegh, the duly elected Prime Minister of Iran, out of office in order to install the American-friendly Shah. The Shah was driven from power in 1979 by the Ayatollah Khomeini, showing that foreign (CIA) meddling can’t always thwart democracy in action.
1954: the CIA ousted Guatemalan President Jacobo Árbenz because his land reforms were threatening a U.S. fruit company’s holdings in Guatemala.
1960: Patrice Lumumba, the first prime minister of the Congo (later the Democratic Republic of the Congo), was pushed out of office by U.S.-supported Belgian military intervention.
1961: The brutal dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo in the Dominican Republic ended when he was ambushed and killed by armed political dissidents sent in by the CIA.
1963: The CIA helped South Vietnamese generals fund and plan the assassination of President Ngo Dinh Diem.
1964: The United States backed a coup led by Humberto Castello Branco to remove Brazilian President Joao Goulart. The CIA encouraged street rallies against the government (Occupy Wall Street, anyone? Black Lives Matter, anyone?) and provided fuel and arms to those backing the military coup.
1973: Even though he was legally elected president of Chile in 1970, the United States never wanted the socialist Salvador Allende to assume office. President Nixon told the CIA to “make the [Chilean] economy scream,” and the agency worked with three Chilean groups to topple Allende.
2016: The CIA inserts one of its former operatives, Evan McMullin (a Mormon like Mitt Romney and Harry Reid), into the U.S. election. When that ploy fails, the CIA then produces fake accusations of Russian support to stop the legally elected President, Donald Trump, assume office.
Are you seeing the pattern? Never Trump schemes are not just personal grudges: they are equivalent to threats against us by a foreign nation.
