Reminder: In 2016 Democrats Threatened and Harassed Members of Electoral College to Stop Trump

Reminder: In 2016 Democrats Threatened and Harassed Members of Electoral College to Stop Trump

“I’ve had people talk about putting a bullet in the back of my mouth.”

As we watch Democrats and their many friends in media melt down over Trump’s challenges to the 2020 election over alleged voter fraud, it’s important to remember where we were four years ago after Trump’s surprise 2016 victory.

Not only were Democrats claiming that Russia stole the election for Trump, they harassed members of the Electoral College in a last ditch effort to prevent Trump from being certified as the winner.

In December of 2016, Mark Moore reported at the New York Post:

Electors are being harassed, threatened in bid to stop Trump

Electors around the country are being harassed with a barrage of emails, phone calls and letters — and even death threats — in an effort to block Donald Trump from being voted in as president by the Electoral College on Monday.

The bullying is overwhelming Sharon Geise’s tech devices, but not her resolve to support Trump.

The Mesa, Arizona, grandmother woke up Wednesday morning to more than 1,500 emails demanding she not carry out her legal duty to vote for the president-elect.

“They just keep coming and coming,” Geise told The Post, estimating she’s received more than 50,000 emails since the election. “They’re overpowering my iPad.”…

Reports of GOP electors being badgered have been reported in numerous states, including Georgia, Idaho, Tennessee, Arizona, Utah and Michigan.

Like Geise, Republican Patricia Allen of Tennessee told The Post she’s been bombarded with 2,000 emails, 120 letters and five phone calls all urging her to switch and vote against Trump. But Allen, 74, said that despite the “siege,” she’s not budging.

One elector told CNN he was getting death threats:

A college student from Michigan said Wednesday that he has received death threats after being chosen to cast an Electoral College vote for his state in December.

Although the presidential election was won by Donald Trump on November 8, it’s not official until December 19, when all 538 members of the Electoral College will come together to cast their votes.

Michael Banerian, the youth vice-chairman of the Michigan Republican Party, will be one of his state’s 16 electors. The honor of being selected, a role typically bestowed to recognize a person’s service and dedication to their political party, has come at a price, Banerian told CNN’s Brianna Keilar.

“Obviously, this election cycle was pretty divisive. Unfortunately it’s bled over into the weeks following the election and I have been inundated with death threats, death wishes, generally angry messages trying to get me to change my vote to Hillary Clinton or another person, and unfortunately, it’s gotten a little out of control.” Banerian said.

Banerian said he has been threatened with violence.

“I’ve had people talk about putting a bullet in the back of my mouth. I’ve had death wishes or people just saying ‘I hope you die.’ Or, ‘do society a favor, throw yourself in front of a bus,'” he said.

Michael Moore went on MSNBC and told Chris Hayes that electors “absolutely” should go against rules and tradition to stop Trump.

Professor Jacobson wrote about this at the time, noting that it was a multi-pronged approach:

The one thing you must understand about the unfolding media-Democrat Electoral College coup attempt

We are witnessing nothing short of an attempt to steal the election by some Democrats and a very supportive mainstream and leftwing media, by causing Electors in the Electoral College to go rogue and vote for Hillary, or at least not vote for Trump.

The first excuse for this tactic after the election was made by people like Prof. Lawrence Lessig. At least he was honest in his call to have the Electors stop Trump because he didn’t like the result and thought Trump would be a horrible president on a host of issues.

Honest, but severely misguided.

Call that Operation Flip the Electors, Part One.

As it became obvious that the recounts demanded by Jill Stein and supported by Hillary would fail to change the outcome, a new and thoroughly dishonest media narrative developed — that Trump could not be allowed to take office because Russia “hacked the election.”

Michael Tracey collected some screenshots from 2016 which serve as a helpful reminder:

Maybe the left could spare us all their shrieking about threats to our democracy.

Mike, thanks for the reminder. Thanks also on this Thanksgiving for your ceaseless efforts on behalf of LI.

And 4 years after Trump’s election victory, I’m still thankful for the no-Hillary dividend that continues to be paid out to the country and to the whole world.

      “…..Look, Malig-Nancy Pelosi may be a classless, corrupt daughter of a mobster who’s only marginally more articulate than Goofy Joey Biden.

      But back in July, she had this to say about President Trump:

      “The fact is: Whether he knows it yet or not, he will be leaving.”

      She didn’t say, “I’m confident he will be defeated,” or “Joe Biden is beating him badly in the polls so there’s no way he can win,” or something like that.

      The words she used were a tell.

      Yes, you can argue that she suffers Trump Derangement Syndrome, but I think that it was

      her TDS that got the better of her and she tipped her hand as to what was up.

      What I’m driving at is that everything I cited above proves that what happened on Tuesday was a coordinated, multi-pronged, pre-planned event.

      Pelosi’s words just underscore it.

      Traitorous, treasonous vermin like Stanley McChrystal are expert at staging so-called “color revolutions” that may resemble grassroots uprisings of “the people” against “tyrants.” He is part of the Deep State Globalist cabal and I would not be surprised if the election thievery, along with the threatened violence of the Antifa/BLM street thugs who will be portrayed by the Industrial Agitprop Media disinformation complex as “ordinary citizens fighting for their freedom” as well as the former’s election night disinformation op are all interconnected. From everything I have seen over the past four years, you can bet your bottom social credit score credit on it.

Maybe Electors should be urged to move to squash the Biden-Harris Crime Syndicate?

A special shout out to the Republican Canvas members and their Vichy Michigan GOP officials. Next time choose people … if there is a next time…. that have “combat” experience to stand up to the Democrat Party. Giving up Michigan so fast to the Left over either threats or promise of “peace in our time” has really hurt the cause of the Republic. May I suggest that having “muscle” to back up the reps to equal the Left and the desire to use it is mandatory. The Democrat Party is the party of riots, looting, intimidation and theft. They are not your friends… 70+ million voters were… let that sink in …”were”. Now.. going forward you have the unique opportunity to save the Republic. The pressure will be far worse.. count on it. Do the right thing FOR the 70+ million and for the Republic,.

Hmmmm…..

“….based on how the Biden team is responding to evidence of election irregularities and potential fraud, former Vice President Biden does not seem confident in victory, Nunes says….”

Top Coup Experts Training Left with Revolutionary Tactics Ahead of Election

Using their expertise in past coups, professionals who assisted in overthrowing governments globally have developed thorough resources and a radical guide to instruct far-left groups — who have been training for months — in toppling a government.

Under the guise of preventing a coup, left wing groups have been planning their own — if things don’t go as they desire on Election Day.

Still wondering what the Democrats have done that they are willing to risk EVERYTHING to keep it hidden.

    Interesting point. I believe that President Trump knows all about it.. His response is two fold, first, the very visible legal filings and exposing this, will be the other. One hand waiving a stick, and the other hand on a grenade, in his pocket. Something like that. I hope.

How about a soft coup d’atet just to start?

Trump voters support the law and Constitution. Liberals tell us “by any means necessary”.

The left is already preoccupied with Trump running again in 2024. Here is CNN’s CE Cupp agonizing about Trump pardoning himself (for what?):

https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2020/11/26/cnns-s-e-cupp-trump-pardoning-himself-would-certainly-imperil-2024-run/

With the way things are working out for their attempt to steal the 2020 election, they may soon come to the realization that it would have been better with Trump being re-elected. If they succeed with the courts, they will be facing an enraged citizenry with Trump staging rallies for the next four years. Better 8 years of Trump than 12. It will certainly be the end of the Democratic party and the birth of a new MAGA GOP.

Winning!!!

I just read about CIA and Mossadeq (Iran) on Wikipedia. Apparently the coup script is an old one. 2020 is just a remake of a tried and true coup with a high tech update.

There are two real worlds…The one most of us live in and the secret world quietly and invisibly dealing with complexities, terror, tyranny, mayhem and state to state or asymetric warfare. We are not privy to the secret world so those that do could become jaded that they know best how to run the ENTIRE country because they know more and thus know best what is needed. They feel constrained by the ignorant populace. Instead of public servants, they strive to be secret masters. This is the deep state….be it within the secret or public worlds.

In 2016 the Dims cried for the electors to “vote their conscience” because they were butthurt that Cankles lost. But it was ok because progs don’t like to be butthurt.

Now in 2020 we have overwhelming evidence of wide-scale fraud in the election, but it’s not ok because, well… progs don’t like to be butthurt.

I remember from 2000 election, the despicable Bob Beckel on National TV, encouraging electors to “vote their conscience” and elect the equally despicable Al Gore.
