You wouldn’t know it from the stock market’s record-breaking tear since Hillary Clinton snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, but the mood among Trump-averse Americans remains bleak.

Blinkered with rage and disbelief because Clinton won more votes than any other presidential candidate in US history (except Obama in 2008), the despondent blame her stunning upset on nefarious reasons such as “whitelash” bigotry, as CNN’s Van Jones fumed on election night, leading many to sever relations with friends and family.

Who is Chris Suprun?

For those who do not recognize the name Chris Suprun has received notoriety as the only Republican Elector to openly state that he will not cast his Electoral College vote for Trump. This, despite being elected to represent the wishes of the majority of Texas voters who voted for president-elect Trump.

He presented his justification in a recent New York Times article where he expressed his opinion that president-elect Trump ”shows daily he is not qualified for the office”.

So who is Suprun and what qualifies him to make such a decision and betray those who elected him? What ethical or moral standing does he have to defy those who put their trust in him?

The Wall Street Journal reported today that the RNC was the subject of hacking attacks by the Russians. However the RNC security screen blocked these attempts. The one exception was an email account belonging to a long departed RNC staffer.

The revelation of the DNC hack caused the RNC officials to be concerned that they had suffered the same fate. However following an analysis by a private security company and the FBI it was discovered that the RNC security filters had blocked malicious emails of the type that had infected the DNC.

The Hypocrisy of the Democrats is beyond Astounding.

Bill Mottram, Colorado Conservative and Blog Admin

Do not get me wrong, I am totally against hacking and believe that the perpetrators should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law or other retalitory remedy applied if it is proven to be an identified foreign government.

However, as I listen to the ranting from the progressives about the how the Trump camp is “too close” to Russia and the allegations of Russia’s attempts to interfere with our elections, I sit back in wonderment at their shameless hypocrisy.

Although the results have not yet been published on the official Wisconsin elections site the Journal has reported that with all the county tallies now completed the Trump vote count increased by 162. The net change in the total vote count was 1769 or o.o6% of the total.

As reported in Reuters US Judge Paul Diamond forcefully closed down Jill Steins’ effort to force a recount of the presidential election in Pennsylvania stating that there were at least 6 grounds that required him to reject the Green Party lawsuit.

In his 31 page opinion he noted that a hacked Pennsylvania election “borders on the irrational,” He continued; “most importantly, there is no credible evidence that any `hack’ occurred, and (there was) compelling evidence that Pennsylvania’s voting system was not in any way compromised,”

The flood of Trump-fearing American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past weeks. The Republican presidential election is prompting an exodus among left-leaning Americans who fear they’ll soon be required to hunt, pray, pay taxes, and live according to the Constitution.

Canadian border residents say it’s not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, liberal arts majors, global-warming activists, and “green” energy proponents crossing their fields at night.

The Man in the Arena.

Bill Mottram, Colorado Conservative and Blog Admin.

It is difficult these days to avoid listening to political commentators on the numerous cable and network stations expound on their perceptions and “measurement” of Trump’s pre and post election performance.  While there are some thoughtful and insightful commentators, seasoned by relevant and pragmatic experience, unfortunately that description does not belong to the majority.

This morning as I listened to a couple of particularly shallow commentators and was reminded of a passage from a speech give by Teddy Roosevelt, at the Sorbonne on April 23, 1910. The speech is titled “Citizenship In A Republic”. How appropriate for today’s environment.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man
