Once again, the faithless elector astroturf plan continues its short march to December. Each week since the election, like clockwork, news about the faithless elector project emerges, compelling me to write an update. I was hoping that this week would be an exception, but no. Yesterday, Wirecutter at the Knuckledraggin blog posted a link to this article by a “conflicted elector”. Note the “crisis of conscience” predicted on this blog as a ruse to cause a sufficient number of Trump electors to fall by the wayside, paving the way for a third pick by a corrupted House.
It is important to note all the “biblical” and “Christian” references thrown out as justifications, as if this guy had never thought that any of the party hack candidates, which he, in advance, blindly pledged to support, might have been a scumbag. Whether he really does think Jesus is telling him to not vote for Trump or he is being bribed or extorted with party plane video, or both, and using faith as a cover, is impossible to say. What does matter is that this new development exactly matches the predicted pattern, and that this long-winded justification provides cover for others to flip.
Another ruse has also arisen, and this is the Green Party (a clear Marxist controlled opposition group) recount demands. These demands, called late in the process, threaten to push recounts past the qualifying period for the electoral college, effectively taking even more Trump electors out of the mix.
Still in play: the favored son compromised compromise candidate roster has yet to clearly emerge. While Cruz remains the Vegas favorite among the StM commentariat, his controversial citizenship status may make him too hot to gracefully handle.
Or maybe the financial oligarchs just want to shove him down our throats for the sheer glee of watching people argue about his qualifications and thus distracting from the central issue of this perversion of the framer’s marketing. For this purpose, he may be the ideal choice.
