Election Fall-out

Brief Status Up-date

I am sorry I was not able to be on line yesterday.  However, today I will be trying to catch up on the fall-out from the election.

The biggest news are the demonstrations now occurring from coast to coast protesting the alleged Trump win.  I use the word "alleged" for this reason:   Technically and in point of fact Trump has not yet been elected to anything.  As I wrote a couple of days ago some may call this a technicality.  However, in the case before us now, the person who won the popular vote is being denied the office.   The merits of the Electoral College can be debated;  I have been a supporter of retaining the Electoral College.  

At any rate, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote and the Electoral College has not yet "met."  Therefore, if anyone can be said to have won the vote it would be Hillary Clinton.  There are many facets to this including all kinds of issues such as "unfaithful electors," and vote certification (which has not universally happened).  It seems that  the votes in California have not even been completely tallied and will not be until December!

Thus the protests against Trump are not only right, they are timely.  The New York Post even wrote about the possibility of electors voting for someone other than the popular vote winner in their state, something which apparently is legal in enough states to make Hillary Clinton President -- the Hillary who won not only the popular vote but a sizable number of Electoral College votes.

The most important consideration is the allegation made by the highly esteemed reporter, Greg Palast, that this was in fact a "Jim Crow" election.  I'll have more on this in the future.  For now you may visit his web site at < www.gregpalast.com  >.

The matter of the protests is likewise something I will be reporting more on.  I am very, very grateful to those persons who have peacefully protested this travesty of an election -- an election which resulted in a truly unbelievable result.
