There's only one thing worse than grief and that's discouragement. I've been dismayed to see my fellow MAGA patriots slipping into discouragement this week courtesy of the Devil's own Mainstream Media.
Hey, you! Snap out of it! There are more "checks and balances" on the Electoral College Vote than you can shake a stick at so take heart! (Scroll down to Section 3 to read the encouraging details!!!)
We're Americans, dammit. Even better than that, we're Christians and God did not gives us a spirit of fear, but of Power! Of Love! And of a Sound Mind! (2 Timothy 1:7)
We are the people of John Paul Jones' famous quote: "I have not yet begun to fight."
We are the people of General McAuliffe who responded "NUTS" to a Nazi surrender demand.
We are the people of Valley Forge who left bloody footprints in the snow.
We Americans "can beat the world at anything from war to tiddlywinks." (Meet John Doe)
Compared to all the adversity we've faced since the 1700s and all we've overcome, the pathetic blatant, in-your-face, well documented ballot box Benedict Arnolds are well within our perview to conquer as well.
C'mon man! Buck up, me buckos! President Trump is still feeding rope to the traitors who are still counting phony ballots. He's still building his arsenal of ammunition for winning this election legally and fairly. His legal team has an embarrassment of riches in their quiver. And the Senate is Republican.
President Trump wouldn't have done fourteen (14!!!) rallies in three days at the age of seventy-four if he hadn't spent the last four years quietly shoring up the election process for just this moment! He kept us in the dark because he never shows his hand. Yes it hurt, but surely we can bear these labor pains necessary for our Glorious Republic to drain the election process swamp.
President Trump has not yet begun to fight and neither have we.
As it turns out, even after casting our ballots there's something we can do to protect the accuracy of the Electoral College. There are a lot of steps, a lot of "checks and balances," a lot of flexibility to protect the integrity of the Electoral College Vote from fraud with precedents already in place! Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL) explained it to Breibart on Thursday while I was researching another angle, but we concur.
So read on, Patriots! Onward Christian Soldiers!
That's where we were on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.
Then cynical Jean Arthur finds Jimmy and says these wonderful words:
Or maybe, Mr. Lincoln was waiting for Mr. Trump.
Later in the movie while Jimmy Stewart is filibustering and blowing the whistle on "all the graft and greed and lies" in Congress, the Mainstream Media of that day refuses to print a single word he says. Instead, they send trucks through the streets blasting the message "Wire Congress! Wire Congress! Wire Congress!" to destroy his reputation and credibility.
And that's exactly what we need to do now according to "political genius" Dick Morris who appeared on Newsmax last night. We need to "wire Congress" to defend our vote and the Electoral College! Here's the link to the show. Start watching at 36 minutes.
As Daniel Horowitz wrote for The Blaze, "Thus, if there is ample evidence of voter fraud that would be sufficient to alter the will of the people through this popular election, it is incumbent upon the state legislatures in those states to reclaim their authority over the Electoral College and rectify the fraud that has upended our election process."
Call, email, write letters...bug the crap out of your state and federal representatives. Demand they do the right thing. Lay it on the line. "If you don't do the right thing now, kiss your political career goodbye."
I'm no legal scholar. That's obvious because I still believe law has something to do with justice and rightness and the blindfolded Lady Justice Trey Gowdy talks about.
But late last night, I did some impatient digging and what I found was fascinating!
If you think this election is a bloody mess, may I introduce you to the fraudulent election of 1876: Rutherford B. Hayes vs Samuel Tilden.
As I understand it, Congress may set aside returns for "manifest fraud," which Stephen Siegel defines as fraud that is so notorious it does not require an investigation by Congress to ascertain.
Sound familiar??? Hence why the fraud is being allowed to play out til the bitter end. To make it as notorious and obvious as possible.
According to Stephen A. Siegel's book The Congressman's Guide to the Electoral Count Act of 1887, "To resolve the disputed election of 1876, Congress created an Electoral Commission with the 'same powers, if any, now possessed' by Congress to accept or reject electoral votes from the four states that submitted multiple packets of electoral votes from competing slates of electors."
In other words, both parties can send their own packets of Electoral Votes to Congress.
An Electoral Commission will then be created to vet the Electoral Votes.
Oh, it gets even better!
In 1960, Hawaiians voted in their first Presidential election. While a recount was still underway, the Republican Governor of Hawaii signed the certificate for the state's three Electoral College votes to be cast for Republican Presidential Candidate (and current VP) Richard Nixon.
Later the same day another certificate was signed, giving Democratic challenger John F. Kennedy Hawaii's three electoral votes as he had won the popular vote by a mere 115 ballots.
As VP and President of the Senate who must preside over the joint congressional session that processes the Electoral Votes, the choice came down to GOP Presidential Candidate Richard Nixon. The choice must've been torturous for him. Would he abide by the will of the people who wanted John F. Kennedy or award the Presidency to himself?
To his credit, he followed his conscience, not his ambition, and accepted the Democratic votes, thereby making John F. Kennedy the next President of the United States.
Mike Pence will be in Richard Nixon's shoes and like Nixon, he will also do the right thing and abide by the will of us, the American people. Happily, this means he will continue to serve as Vice President for the next four years.
If all that wasn't enough to boost your spirits, every Electoral Vote may be challenged if one Representative and one Senator join together to challenge it. Yet another, check-and-balance, if you will.
So take heart, Patriots! There is a great deal of flexibility inherent in the Electoral College process. It can be challenged at every step on its way to the Congress so our election can be protected. That's what it was intended to do. To protect.There are precedents in place to guide our legislators.
I hope this 10,000 foot view article has made you feel empowered. Call your Congressman because President Trump has won and he will be re-inaugurated on January 20th, 2021.
