Electors Officially Cast Ballots for Trump

You might not have realized it, but today is actually Election Day.

The various members of the Electoral College are casting their ballots in the state capitals.

According to Charles Thompson of the Patriot-News, about a dozen protesters were arrested at the Capitol.

The actual scene in the chamber was lively, with fury from the protesters and celebration from the assembled electors. Despite the outcry, no electors defected and all twenty voted for Donald Trump.

While all the votes are being cast today, it won’t be official until they’re counted on January 6th before a joint session of Congress.

  1. (from the P-N article) : “Those arrested were actually part of a SEPARATE rally seeking closure of a detention center in Berks County,” and they were arrested for blocking traffic on 3rd Street

  2. Could we classify the efforts to interfere with electors as sedition? Consider:

    “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”

  3. Idiot Trump protestors should make better use of their time. One of them barked out “Trump is Hitler”! Yeah, that makes sense! What a bunch of pathetic idiots! Wait until the anarchists torch D.C. on January 20th, I hope Bikers for Trump and law enforcement cave in their skulls and incarcerate these goons en masse and they will never make it to another protest ever again. Too bad lefties like Bill Ayers and Sal Alinsky radical, Crooked Hillary will never tell these people to stop even though their efforts are futile. The protests in Portland, Oregon cost city taxpayers $500,000 in police overtime and cost businesses and insurance companies millions in the property damage from these drug addled creeps who chanted Commie slogans and acted like a bunch of crybullies!

  4. Since school is out at most universities, maybe they were college kids. Or housewives. Or senior citizens. Or just so committed to the cause that they sacrificed a day off work. Hmmm…now what was your point, John Galt?
