While it appears the 2016 national nightmare of the Clinton presidential campaign is over, the damage to the nation’s democracy is apparent. According to the Daily Mail, the Clinton campaign were not only behind the scenes field commanders of the electoral college rigging effort, they also dabbled in the voter recall grenade that blew up in Jill Stein’s face as well.
Even if the nation had moved on to acceptance of Donald J. Trump as the 45th president of the United States, Hillary Clinton and her losing $1.2 billion campaign machine could not and would not. It was not enough that the former Secretary of State could not rig the elections in the traditionally blue states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin or Michigan. The blue wall melted.
Although she does receive an honorable mention for the numerous illegal and irregular election efforts that were uncovered in the Detroit votes, where evidently even the dead are allowed to vote. Even as Hillary was giving her concession speech the following day, her never-say-no delusional campaign staff were busily working all angles to steal the election from president-elect Trump.
The Daily Mail reported that based upon emails and internal calls, several of her campaign officials were working with the Electoral College group that wanted to deprive Trump of the 270- plus votes needed for the presidency. The mainstream media actually went into overdrive to create a national atmosphere of doubt concerning the viability of a Trump presidency.
The Never Trump army even sought the advice of the founding fathers as well as comfort from the Federalist Papers in order to unearth words that might bring legitimacy to their hair-brained cause. Even Hollywood got in on the action and a good number of A-lister stars gave a failing performance in convincing Republican Electoral College voters that they needed to change their votes for the good of the country…i.e. for Hillary Clinton.
What is quite sinister is how the Clintons, as well as their campaign apparatus denounced Trump after the third debate and called him everything expect a traitor if he did not submit to the will of the voters on Election Day. Now, with his winning presidential election in the rearview of the nation, the real traitors and pathetic whiners are Clinton, her campaign manager John Podesta and senior campaign aides Jennifer Palmieri and Jake Sullivan. What their dishonest behavior reveals is the hypocritical nature of what liberals embody.
The rules of democracy do not apply to them, and the more Hillary Clinton and her campaign subordinates embarked in last-ditch effort after last-ditch effort to derail the incoming president’s legal path to the Oval office, the more they reveal why America’s voters supported a change.
How fitting it was to see their ill-fated Electoral College campaign be engulfed in flames as eight Electoral College voters abandoned Clinton while only two decided to not back Trump. To add insult to injury, the anti-Trump Electoral College effort leader Michael Baca of Colorado was replaced when he attempted to vote for Kasich.
For Clinton who wanted to make history as the first woman to be elected president of the United States from a major political party she did make history. She not only lost twice in her efforts to become president but she lost three times in 2016 as well. She lost the election on November 8 and lost the recall vote and finally lost presidential electors.
So, in effect she is a three-time loser in 2016 for the office of President of the United States. So much for making history.
