Change.org Petition to Unseat Donald and Make Hillary President

by Stephen Lendman

Change.org is a for-profit enterprise, not an NGO – deceiving supporters by using the .org domain suffix, not .com as it should. Its business is getting people to sign petitions, along with selling advertising and personal data for added profits.

Best to ignore its petitions altogether, especially a deplorable one now circulating with nearly two million signers – calling for the Electoral College to make war goddess/racketeer/perjurer Hillary president when it votes on December 19 – wanting Trump’s election annulled.

Democracy in America is pure fantasy. Change.org wants it undermined more than already – for its bottom line interests exclusively, taking advantage of state-sponsored and media anti-Trumpism, unrelated to electoral results or anything else.

What it asks for, is the following:

On December 19, the Electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win.”

However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine – which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!

We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states’ votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton.

Change.org says Trump is unfit to serve, but Hillary is, citing an array of anti-Trump propaganda reasons.

It claims “24 states fine electors. If (they) vote against their party, they usually pay a fine. And people get mad. But they can vote however they want and there is no legal means to stop them in most states.

Here’s what the National Archives and Records Administration says about Electoral College voting:

Throughout US history, “more than 99 percent of Electors have voted as pledged” – for the winner of the popular vote winner in states they represent.

There is no Constitutional provision or Federal law requiring Electors to vote in accordance with the popular vote in their States. Some States have such requirements.”

“Note that 48 out of the 50 States award Electoral votes on a winner-takes-all basis (as does the District of Columbia).” Nebraska and Maine alone don’t follow the winner-takes-all rule.

If no candidate receives a majority of Electoral votes, House members choose the president from among the three candidates receiving the most votes. In this case, each state gets one vote.

Denying Trump the office he won, as Change.org urges, would border on insurrection – perhaps enough to create a national convulsion and blood in the streets.

Trump won’t be a people’s president. Neither was any previous leader in US history – not Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln or either Roosevelt. John F. Kennedy came closest – assassinated by the CIA for doing the right thing.

Trump will be inaugurated on January 20 as America’s 45th president. He saved humanity from the possible scourge of nuclear war under Hillary had she defeated him.

His wanting better relations with Russia is the most hopeful sign for perhaps better US geopolitical relations than currently under the nation’s war party – Hillary a leading member as first lady, US senator, secretary of state and two-time presidential aspirant, now politically dead. Let her stay that way!

A final point. Who paid Change.org to circulate its petition – the DNC or Hillary campaign?

    Would like to join this juicy “Burger King” conversation. I would like to shut it down with-the fact that first and foremost I must respect all opinions: The coherent opinions as well as the “I don’t have a soul” or a brain of my own-one’s. Meaning the “none” factors. If we are at war-for so many seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, year’s, decade’s and two “Milleniums” “AKA” the 21st Century. This would be equivalent to an like sand in an hour glass “Time is up” The “Father” The “Sun” and “The Holy Spirit” is here on “Earth” “AKA” The return of the “Mac” dedicated to all the “Cracker Jacks” so get over it and watch the African True American-Indians, take over this entire planet. 1. Watch the Throne. 2. Watch the Hollywood sign. 3. New life will begin

    A plan, now stealthily making its way through state legislatures… W-I-T-H A-S-T-O-N-I-S-H-I-N-G S-P-E-E-D!!… would junk the Electoral College, and award the Presidency T-O T-H-E W-I-N-N-E-R O-F T-H-E P-O-P-U-L-A-R V-O-T-E! AND N-O!… I’M NOT KIDDING! And sorry!… Lady Gaga!… the over 3.9 million Change.org supporters, have now just been eclipsed by a HERCULEAN/ SAMPSONIAN effort by politicians (NO LESS!) to pull off the most efficient and effective American National political retrofit, in American history!
    .
    The plan involves an “Interstate Compact” where states would commit to select Electors pledged to vote for the national popular vote winner!… REGARDLESS OF HOW THEIR OWN STATE VOTED!! When enough states pass this law… sufficient to cast 270 votes for the majority of the Electoral College!… I-T W-I-L-L T-A-K-E E-F-F-E-C-T!!
    .
    SOMEBODY IN AMERICAN POLITICS, IS R-O-Y-A-L-L-Y P-I-S-S-E-D!!… OR!… SOON WILL BE!!
    .
    T-H-E E-L-E-C-T-O-R-A-L C-O-L-L-E-G-E W-I-L-L B-E-C-O-M-E A-V-E-S-T-I-G-I-A-L A-N-A-C-H-R-O-N-I-S-M!
    .
    So far, nine states, and D.C.– casting 136 electoral votes!– have joined!… half way to the 270 needed to put the compact into effect! The ratifying states, are: Maryland, New Jersey, Illinois, Hawaii, Washington, Massachusetts, DC, Vermont, California, and Rhode Island!
    .
    Both houses in New York have passed it!… A-N-D I-T-‘-S O-N G-O-V-E-R-N-O-R C-U-O-M-O-‘-S D-E-S-K!!
    .
    And!… it has already passed one house, in: Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, and Oregon! These states… plus New York!… represent 107 votes! Combined with the others, they are up to 242 votes! They need 270!
    .
    All of the ratifying, voted for Obama!… as did eight of the ten “one house” states! The key battles are coming up in Arkansas and North Carolina! In both states, one house has passed the Compact!
    .
    The Movement, is funded– in part!– by the Center for Voting and Democracy (a George Soros-funded election group!)! (Incidentally!… and interestingly!… the link to the Center for Voting and Democracy, by way of FairVote, is reading, “Error 524 Ray ID: 3017365743a73060 • 2016-11-14 03:01:57 UTC… A timeout occurred”!… HA, HA, HA!)
    .
    Essentially, it’s an end run around the regular Constitutional Amending Process! Rather than get a two-thirds majority of each House of Congress, and three-quarters of the states, this proposal would TAKE EFFECT when a simple majority approve it!
    .
    To sum up… H-O-L-Y… C-R-A-P!! It’s hard to believe that politicians have actually constructed this!… and!… THAT IT’S ON IT’S WAY TO C-O-M-P-L-E-T-I-O-N!!
    .
    If you thought these pass four days have been something!… just wait till you get a load of next week’s action!!
    .
    And someone said America wasn’t great!… PFFFT!… HA, HA, HA!… SNORK, SNORK!
    .
    Please!… no emails!

  3. Seems like Trump wanted to win the election but doesn’t want the job! He is NOT qualified in any way to be the POTUS. The man has never been in public service, has no legal background, and obviously knows nothing about governmental law. He is divisive, a racist, self centered, small minded, egomaniac who has sexually assaulted women many times over years of his life and who also wants to appoint a supreme court justice with intentions of overturning Roe v Wade! Wtf, he’s gonna try and throw women’s rights back to the dark ages. Women only got the right to make that decision in the 60’s…not that long ago. When he went to the White House, he looked truly scared. He has bitten off more than he can chew, and he knows it more than anyone. He cheated people many times, filing bankruptcy 4 times to avoid paying his debts, still won’t provide his tax returns. What do you really expect from a man like him? This is about more than the U.S., we are a world power with great influence and strength. It is a scary situation that a man with his temperament, lack of forethought and knee jerk reactions, will have the nuclear codes!

    Firstly, Mr.Lendmen, you are a sad excuse of a journalist if you use such vehement bias on all your articles. Poor work ethic. Secondly, America would be better off with “war goddess/racketeering/perjurer Hillary” than with the blatant xenophobe, islamophobe, homophobe, racist fascist that Trump is. You all are out of your FUCKING minds if you think the rest of the world will put up with these American superiority bullshit. We account for 5% of the world’s population, and if we are a country ruled by a divisive white-supremacist, we are surely in for doom.
    Sincerely,
    A educated Republican w/ morals

    Trump has three main Policies.
    1] Rebuild the aging infrastructure, Low tech in the main and labour intensive. If he uses US made products, so what its good for the US economy?
    2] More intensive checks, political and health, on Immigrants/asylum seekers/chancers is that not a good thing?
    3] More open relations with Russia and maybe the dropping of trade sanctions. Plus a cooling off “my missile is bigger then your missile” and combine to sort out ISIL?
    Not a bad 1.2.3 for me

      Hi Peter, I’m the other Peter. I agree with 1 and 3, but not 2. Remember when they used to say: give me your tired, your sick, your poor, the huddled masses and so forth? (I can’t remmeber the exact quotation, but you know what I mean.) The United States was built on taking in migrants and refugees. The least it can do now is continue taking in those its rapacious economic and trade policies and its murderous wars have driven from their homes.

      Ps – The Democrats wanted Hillary, not Bernie. They got Donald. Beware of what you wish for.

    I think everyone needs to calm down and stop protesting and acting like spoiled brats. When I saw the protesting on TV I thought I was watching a third world country not America, I am so ashamed of the people acting like idiots. I am very anxious to see what president elect Trump will do for this country. I am pretty sure a lot of these people will change their minds and feel very foolish for the way they are acting.

    • I am very anxious to see how he is going to manœuver his entire family into top positions in the White House and government. To this day we do not know what are the conflicting interests, which should scare you. He thinks he can treat this like a dictatorship as Putin, Hoshni Mubarak, Basshar al-Assad and others have done and do. It should scare the hell out of anyone.
