Millions and millions ... Your hero is widely reviled. It would be like levelling Hitler's Eagles Nest.


Trump is popular for the right reasons and unpopular for the wrong reasons. He don't always talk nice, and people don't like that, they like to be sucked in by people who talk nice. Actions with Trump is a different story- when he says he's going to do something he generally goes ahead and does it.

Apparently. The EC is composed of about 540 electors. All you need to do is pay enough money to make up a tad more than half. Or con them.


And each one of those colleges has a couple of hundred thousand voters...…………….. a lot of conning to do! But go your best lick! :)

Nope. Most voters have already decided who they want by that time. All you have to do is convince a few more to get to a little more than half. And if only your favoured voters vote, its a shoe-in. As it happens, Trump conned enough people to do just that. And Canadians are too effing gullible and that's how Turdeau got in.

actually if you can get a few less of them to vote you can get a majority also

this is how it works in america at the moment.

Actually I have heard it suggested that rigging elections..........................


MIGHT NOT BE THAT HARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



The example I was given was for Cdn elections.......................


but the principle is the same!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Consider the Cdn version...............................


last time around - 338 ridings - to each to elect one MP naturally........................................


so start by eliminating ridings where you KNOW your candidate is going to win........................................



no need to mess around there................................



then eliminate ridings where you KNOW your opponent has a sure thing...........................


because there might be questions asked if the results looked TO WEIRD..............................


focus ONLY ON the swing ridings....................................


where the race is TIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Look for ridings that could go either way.........................................


and can be influenced by just a few votes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


THEN CONSIDER......................................


in the last election our Cdn govt...........................................


reportedly handed out tens of thousands of voter registration cards..........................


to people WHO WERE DEAD....................................


but those people ROSE FROM THE GRAVE TO VOTE ANYWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The potential for FRAUD IS GRAVE..................................


no pardon for the little pun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Then consider that LIE-berals have magically imported 60,000.......................................


mostly Syrian Muslims into Canada................................


and made them SWIFTLY into citizens who will VOTE LIE-beral!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And the Muslims HATE Yankees and anybody who supports Yankees................................


as our Conservative party tends to do............................................


so Our idiot Boy BOUGHT 60,000 ANTI Conservative voters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Then consider that LIE-berals have apparently issued hundreds or even thousands of voter registration cards.......................


TO ILLEGALS who DO NOT HAVE STATUS in our elections!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And we KNOW that illegals and a lot of ethnic groups are demanding OPEN BORDERS................................


that LIE-berals want to deliver to them...............................................


IN EXCHANGE FOR VOTES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Then consider the SLIMY LIE-beral habit of allowing "vouching"..........................


in which total strangers WITH NO ID are "vouched for" by civil service union HOGS..........................


who all HATE Conservative govt.....................................


and now we ask what effect vouching WILL HAVE on tight races in swing ridings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And finally...........................................


ask how hard it would be simply to BRIBE OR THREATEN OR TRICK........................................


a couple of HOGS who HATE Conservatives anyway....................................


and they are standing guard over a not yet.........................................


fully registered and not officially counted box of ballots...............................................


and consider how long it would take to switch an official box...............................


with the one YOU HAVE PREPARED on behalf of a "special client"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Thank you LIE-berals.................................


for CONTAMINATING OUR NATION........................................


and ENCOURAGING..............................



so many thieves and cheats and liars and TAX SCAMS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sharpie-gate? Trump shows apparently altered Hurricane Dorian map

WASHINGTON — U.S. President Donald Trump showed a map of Hurricane Dorian’s projected path on Wednesday that appeared to have been altered with a Sharpie pen to include the state of Alabama, which was never in harm’s way.
In a White House video released on Wednesday Trump points to an official weather chart dated Aug. 29 showing the states that could be hit in what the National Hurricane Center calls the “cone of uncertainty.” A curved line had been added to the cone on the chart to show a risk that Dorian could move from Florida to Alabama.
“It was going to hit not only Florida, but Georgia, it could have, it was going towards the Gulf, that was what we, what was originally projected…,” Trump says in the video.
Dorian was never projected to be heading toward the Gulf of Mexico, where Alabama has a coastline.
Trump at the weekend in a tweet had named Alabama as one of the states that could be hit. The National Weather Service denied that in its own tweet 20 minutes later.
“Alabama will NOT see any impacts from #Dorian. We repeat, no impacts from Hurricane #Dorian will be felt across Alabama. The system will remain too far east,” the National Weather Service in Alabama tweeted.
When reporters later asked Trump whether the chart had been drawn on with a Sharpie pen, the president said: “I don’t know; I don’t know.”

What's more worrisome to me is his obsession over trying to prove he was right and having someone say he was.


Even if he was sort of maybe right - as in, initial indications four days previously said it had a chance of hitting Alabama - the updated info shows the course change.


He's so INSISTANT on being right he'll fight tooth and nail to be so to me it's more of a sign of just how unstable he is.


Also, the whole sharpie thing, if he had even done the sharpie curve RIGHT it would have included Alabama. But that's my OCD showing. That sideways bump annoys me.

Trump doubles down on Hurricane Dorian's aim for Alabama

(REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst)
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump, not someone who easily lets things go, doubled down on Thursday on his insistence that Alabama could have been hit by Hurricane Dorian and enlisted his top homeland security adviser to back him up.
On Wednesday, the president displayed a map of the storm’s projected path that appeared to have been altered with a Sharpie pen to include the state of Alabama, following his remarks on Sunday in which he said it could be affected by the storm.
In fact, the National Hurricane Center’s advisory on Sunday morning did not include the state, and the National Weather Service denied that Alabama would be affected after Trump suggested initial projections showed the storm heading toward the Gulf of Mexico, where Alabama has a coastline.
“Alabama will NOT see any impacts from #Dorian. We repeat, no impacts from Hurricane #Dorian will be felt across Alabama. The system will remain too far east,” the National Weather Service in Alabama tweeted.
News reports about the discrepancies and about the apparently Sharpie-edited map exploded on social media — the term #SharpiePresident was trending on Twitter — prompting Trump to fire back.
“Just as I said, Alabama was originally projected to be hit. The Fake News denies it!” Trump, using his preferred pejorative for the media, tweeted along with a collection of maps on Thursday afternoon. “I was with you all the way Alabama. The Fake News Media was not!”
Alabama is a largely conservative state that supported the Republican Trump in the 2016 election.
Later in the day, after Trump declined to answer a question from a reporter in the Oval Office about his focus on the issue, the White House released a statement from Rear Admiral Peter Brown, the president’s homeland security and counterterrorism adviser, who said he had briefed Trump about the potential path of the storm using the NHC forecast and other models.
Brown said Trump’s comments to the press on Sunday, when he discussed Alabama during a visit to the Federal Emergency Management Agency headquarters, were based on that morning’s Hurricane Dorian briefing, which included “the possibility of tropical storm force winds in southeastern Alabama.”
“In fact, from the evening of Tuesday, August 27, until the morning of Monday, September 2, forecasts from the National Hurricane Center showed the possibility of tropical storm force winds hitting parts of Alabama,” Brown wrote.
Brown noted that the forecast track “changed substantially over time” and areas that were originally seen as targets such as Puerto Rico, South Florida and the Gulf Coast experienced “minimal to no impact from Hurricane Dorian.”
Early NHS models of the hurricane last week showed roughly a dozen or so trajectories, including one that took it into the Gulf. But by Sunday, when the president discussed Alabama, the trajectories clearly showed the storm going to the Atlantic and not the Gulf of Mexico.
Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson, a Democrat from Texas who chairs the House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space and Technology, expressed concern about Trump’s actions in a letter to him on Thursday.
“In times of emergency, the American public need to have confidence in the information being provided by the White House, and misrepresentation of National Weather Service (NWS) forecasts is especially disturbing when it concerns an ongoing natural disaster that has already killed twenty people,” she wrote.
