Trump Opponents Push Changing How America Elects Presidents

WND is now on Trump’s Truth Social! Follow us @WNDNews

Over recent years, there’s been a Democrat challenging the validity of virtually every president election in which a Republican was the winner.

Then President Donald Trump challenged the 2020 results.

In fact, during that election analysts have charged that the FBI actually stole the election from Trump by influencing social media companies to repress accurate – but damaging – information about the Biden family’s international business schemes.

Also, Mark Zuckerberg handed out $420 million through foundations to be used largely by leftist local election officials to recruit Democrat voters, another factor that analysts say could have changed the victor from Trump to Joe Biden.

But now that Trump has raised questions, leftists say they want to change the Electoral Count Act, that 135-year-old law that specifies that each state chooses electors who meet in the Electoral College and cast their ballots to determine the winner.

It was set up at least partly in order to assure that smaller states still would have influence on an election, since the vote, it if truly was a “democratic” procedure, would never need to consider the votes from 25 or 30 states with the lowest populations.

The Washington Times said it actually is “Liz Cheney’s swan song,” referring to the Wyoming representative who has been laser-focused on preventing Trump from being in federal office again, and whose obsession cost her the Republican primary victory in Wyoming.

The Times reported Cheney has been working with Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., to introduce changes to the law that they want.

In a commentary in the Wall Street Journal they claimed without their changes, there would fight the “prospect of another effort to steal a presidential election, perhaps with another attempt to corrupt Congress’s proceeding to tally electoral votes.”

Cheney and Lofgren want four changes: a statement that the vice president only acts as a functionary in counting the votes and has no influence over them. They also want to limit the scope of objections to an election and require huge numbers of members of Congress to sign onto the concerns before they would be considered.

They also want presidential candidates given permission to sue states.

And they want to ban changes that affect elections after those elections are held.

Just the News said work on the proposal is expected to begin in the House and Senate this week.

Time is getting short for Democrats who earlier tried to have Washington take over all elections, and failed, and then turned to other ways to influence the outcome.

Congress goes on recess soon for the Nov. 8 midterm elections, and those will decide whether the Democrats will keep their majority in the House and Senate, or not.

IMPORTANT NOTE: How is it possible that the greatest and freest nation in world history has so rapidly come under the control of serially lying, deranged, power-mad sociopaths – leaders with nothing but contempt for America, for its history, its Constitution, its Judeo-Christian culture and its people? Orwell’s “1984” points directly to the answer: The elites are changing America’s language itself, so that people’s words – and therefore, their very thoughts – inevitably come under the control of the ruling class. It’s a way of bending reality in real time, so that what is illusion appears to be true, while what is real and true appears to be lies, misinformation, “hate speech,” “conspiracy theories” and “extremism.” This extraordinarily powerful but little-understood weapon of war employed 24/7 by the Marxist left is completely explained, exposed and exploded in the August issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, “NEWSPEAK 2022: How tyrants and lunatics are enslaving Americans by redefining everything.”
