As if further proof were even needed.
So let’s imagine that somehow, integrity rules the day, and both states under audit produce rock-solid proof that the election in their states was stolen; what then? Technically, nothing. Arizona had 11 electoral votes and Wisconsin had 10. Together they represent 21 electoral votes and Joe Biden was declared the winner by 74 votes. In order for anything to change there must be a difference of at least 38 votes flipped from Biden to Trump.
But let’s say even one of those states produces demonstrable proof of election fraud. At that point the Republican legislatures of other battleground states that exhibited strange activity on election night… Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan would be under a great deal of pressure to look into the integrity of their own elections. Suddenly, with an additional 52 electoral votes in play, things look a bit different.
Let’s further assume that the legislatures of Georgia and Pennsylvania determine that there was sufficient fraud in their states to flip the state’s vote to Donald Trump. With Arizona and Wisconsin, those states would bring the total to 57 electoral votes flipped from Biden to Trump, changing the totals to 249 to 289 and leaving Trump with a majority.
Guess. Go on, guess. I triple-dog dare ya. STRONG HINT: Nothing. More precisely: Nothing we don’t make happen ourselves.
Once the fraud has been demonstrated, America is going to find itself in a situation where it doesn’t appear that there is any Constitutional remedy in place. Are Americans simply supposed to acquiesce to the theft and allow the fraudulent president to be the actual president for the next three years?
It’s what The Power expects us to do, certainly. We’ll see before a whole lot longer how that works out for them.
What can be done when the Constitution doesn’t address a bastardization of the constitutional process? Does a military junta take control and put Donald Trump back in the Oval Office? Umm… No! Does the 25th Amendment somehow come into play? No, because that would not remedy the situation. Does Biden resign? Unlikely, and again, it wouldn’t remedy the situation. A Convention of the States as outlined by Article V of the Constitution? Maybe, but that’s a long process and would likely not occur within the timeframe of the next election.
How about a shadow government? Does Donald Trump build a replica of the Oval Office at Mar-a-Lago and show the world what a real president would do in whatever circumstances the imposter president finds himself in?
Do true patriots take to the streets and use violence and intimidation to wreak havoc from sea to shining sea the way BLM and Antifa did last year, and maintain it until the Democrats capitulate?
None of those ideas is an ideal solution. An ideal solution would essentially reverse the inauguration of Joe Biden and inaugurate Donald Trump as the rightful president.
When, in this life, has there ever been an “ideal solution” to anything, pray tell? Knowing that, why would any serious, reasonable adult waste a moment of his time imagining that one might be found, in a situation as far from “ideal” as this one?
Many pundits are suggesting that Republicans should dig deep and focus on 2022, both at the local and the state level so that the GOP can take back the House and the Senate. While that’s true, it’s not sufficient because it doesn’t address the fraud in the first place.
What a laugh. It’s a fool’s hope, a pathetic and cowardly attempt to avert one’s eyes from unpleasant reality—akin, in a way, to a child stuffing his fingers in his ears, closing his eyes tight shut, and looudly singing “tra-la-la-la-la” to make the monsters under the bed go away and leave him alone. In this case, unfortunately, the monsters are all too real. Trusting that the self-same brazen mountebanks who corrupted the system in the first place will see the error of their ways, repent of their flimflammery, and make things right is worse than a waste of time.
If it’s possible to steal the presidency with impunity, what office in the nation is beyond reach? The simple answer is none, and that matters because the government has police power and once the Constitution becomes superfluous, the coercive powers of government suddenly have no limits. And for those who say that the Constitution still stands, the Constitution is nothing more than a piece of paper. It is the citizens’ loyalty to that Constitution and the system built upon it that make it work.
Annnnd bingo, there we have the hard nut of the matter. We were warned—explicitly, repeatedly, and presciently—by the Founders that dropping our guard against tyranny would bring us to this awful place. They were correct. We must hope that enough of us are worthy of their heritage to turn this dismal tide.
