The Unreal World Of US Legislators

Seen from the other side of the Pond, what is happening in the United States is nothing less than historically scandalous.

I do not remember any election, all over the Western world, that had such a (literally) truckload evidence of ballot stuffing in many different ways.

I cannot imagine any Western European Country in which 1) these things happen, and 2) these things go unpunished.

What I can see instead, is a shameful attempt at stealing the election, accompanied by the stupidest excuses for not acting: courts who do not want to decide, State Legislators who do not want to use their powers and, incredibile dictu, possibly even a Vice President too weak to make a historic, certainly controversial, but absolutely due decision.

At last count, at least, many US congressmen (140) and a bunch of Senators (7 to 12) had begun to wake up and ask that the certification of the fake electors be blocked or delayed. It’s a bizarro world, where people act, in front of the obvious evidence, only doing as little as possible and as late as possible (make no mistake, this is what is happening here), and hope that they will be able to say, after the fact, “we tried, but there was no time”, or “we tried and we did not succeed”. It’s also a bizarro world, where 140 (weak) US congressmen still appear to have more testicular fortitude than Michael Pence, and a man who has been a solid ally of President Trump appears now to be the biggest obstacle to Trump’s due, deserved, and obtained victory, “by a lot”.

I listen to Steve Bannon and I do not see any residual play mentioned if the worst happens and, on the 6th, or shortly later, Pence certifies. At that point, I fear that President Trump would be the last line of defence, and I doubt he would do what, frankly, I think he should do.

I also remind my reader that the 20th January is not set in stone, and that, if this were so, it would be more reason for Trump not to go on that day. President Hayes was sworn in March 1877, after an election just as contested as this one.

This idea that one parties tries to steal the election and everybody accepts this as fact because “there is no time” is the most bizarre element of these most bizarre two months.

We need to keep praying.

  1. No president in US history has ever stayed in office past the official end of his term.

    Since 1933, every POTUS’ term ends on January 20th, and that is set in stone until another Amendment modifies or repeals this one:

    The 20th Amendment went into effect in 1933. President Hayes’ inauguration date back in 1877 was set by the 12th Amendment, and therefore it isn’t relevant to the current dispute.

  2. I will just add that I would not be surprised, with the rise of the “defund the police” movement, to see a biden/harris progressive administration invite UN “peacekeepers” in to bring (the new) “order” in.
    “Peace in our time” will be an unending war against individual freedom.

      Wouldn’t it be the height of irony (AND the death of the Republic) if we looked out our windows here in the U.S. one day and saw PLA ‘peacekeeping’ troops patrolling our streets in convoys in their nice, shiny CSK-131s the Chinese equivalent of the armor-plated reinforced U.S. Army Humvee.

    If I may enter into this exchange…..Please check out the website JeffreyPrather.com. Specifically his presentation ” Traitors.” Viewing Jeffrey’s presentation might help to sort things out.

  4. Most despicable is Pence. Looking out only for himself. Wow, what a coward. To abandon Trump and the millions of Americans who made him Veep.

    • Yes, Akita. I wonder if it is related to him having left the Catholic Faith in his young adulthood. For whatever reason, I place much blame on his cowardice.

  5. We no longer have a free country in America they have taken away our right to vote.

    We now belong to international corporate States of the world.

    Joseph Pieper Chapter 3 in his book The End of Time should be looked into by every Roman Catholic.

    • Patrick, I just purchased the book and will read it, and let you know what I think, if I can.
