J. Christian Adams talks about what’s behind the Left’s well-funded efforts to destabilize the Electoral College, death threats against presidential electors, and why Obama’s Justice Department is ignoring them:
You can’t pick up the phone and make death threats via interstate communications. And why it is that this is even complicated and why it is the FBI hasn’t visited these electors to collect evidence, well we all know the answer: they were going to vote for Trump. . . .
What an amazing slap against our Constitution… You don’t threaten to kill presidential electors in the United States of America.
Yet the institutional Left is working to legitimize those threats, as well as the larger organized effort to destabilize the Electoral College process. The National Popular Vote movement is part of the Leftist-progressive network that is heavily funded by the Soros world and reinforced by radicals within the Obama Justice Department and by the Democrat Media Complex. Why? Because it helps Democrats win.
These people have been agitating against the Electoral College for a long time. There’s millions of dollars flowing into dismantling the Constitution, including the Electoral College. These people have been in the field fighting and this gave them the perfect opportunity to a) unleash mobs of violent idiots to threaten people, and b) delegitimize the Electoral College process. . . . The Left hates the Electoral College. It takes power away from urban centers. . . .
President Obama wants urban centers where elections are not monitored by both sides – remember, when you go to a place like Los Angeles or San Francisco, there aren’t a lot of Republican poll watchers there – he wants these places to decide who the president is, because those urban centers will open up the spigots the whole way. It’s chaos in some of these places, with terrible voter fraud. . . .
The founders thought differently. They wanted the President to appeal to a broad cross-section of America. You can’t win if you appeal only to the urban centers under the Electoral College. And that’s exactly why the founders wanted it. It’s a unifying force for America. It makes it so everybody gets a say and not just the cities with 20 million people.
