The Republican Party killed itself yesterday

It’s too early to translate what happened in Washington yesterday (1-6-21) as it may be a harbinger of things to come but we would suggest at this point that the Republican Party died with the vote to elect Joe Biden without a proper investigation into the accusations of election fraud in November, and possibly in Georgia’s Senate Runoff.  That remains to be seen but what is not in doubt is that most Republicans in the Senate and House abandoned the constitutional mandate that the Federal government is responsible to insure a republican form of government in the states.

In a republic, as opposed to a democracy, the people elect representatives to govern them.  In a democracy the people make the policy decisions directly.  The issue here is that the Federal government has not met its responsibility to insure that the elected representatives, in this case the President and Vice President, were duly elected by the people.  There is a mountain of evidence that it was not the people who elected Joe Biden but rather fraudulent voting machines, illegal procedures and crooked election officials.  The Constitution does not sanction such abuse of the electoral process.

Now the leftists are saying that there was no fraud.  But the problem with that is that there has been no adjudication of the evidence and an impartial rendering of judgment based on a judicial proceeding.  Had the Republicans in Congress stood up for fair elections we might have seen the evidence and the  judicial review of the evidence and election processes.  The blame for that rests squarely with the Republican Leadership in both the House and Senate, and of course with the Supreme Court.

Over seventy million people, more or less, voted for Donald Trump.  Hundreds of thousands of those voters stormed Washington in a mostly peaceful protest demanding that the complaints of voting irregularities be investigated.  No such investigation was order and that failure falls on the Republicans.

As Rush Limbaugh said in his Thursday broadcast (LISTEN: Limbaugh getting blasted for these TRUTH bombs. But FACTS are Facts), there is actually no difference between the Republicans and Democrats in Congress.  They mostly see themselves as the Ruling Class and their top priority is not to insure an honest republican system of government but rather to protect their on power and perks.  They really don’t care who the people wanted and elected president, and whether it was a fair election or not, but rather they only care that they can remain in their august sanctuary safe from the protestors and even the voters.

Many of the seventy million plus who voted for Donald Trump will never accept Joe Biden as their President.  And rightly so.  He may serve as President but he is not the President of the majority of the people.

We don’t have a clue what Donald Trump will do after he takes a vacation in February but we suspect he will continue to lead and grow the movement that got him seventy million votes.  He has shown he can do it and we fully expect him to do so.  If he does, and if he leaves the GOP who are they going to draft to counter his movement.  There is not one Republican who can hold a candle to Donald Trump. 

We predict that he will focus his energy on electing his people not only to Congress but also in the state legislatures.  We look forward to that.  This crap of “holding our noses and voting for the lesser of two evils” must come to an end.  Trump can do that.  He can give the people a real choice.  And if and when he does the Establishment GOP is doomed.

Charles, you are right on many levels, some represented by the fact that Republican politicians need to learn when and how to keep their fool mouths shut, and simply take a bold stand when it is time to do so.

This is just separating the wheat from the chaff. We can't have a free Republic without credible free and fair elections. Those not interested in that result should not be supported. Those people have identified themselves.

A Republican Party at odds with making America great doesn't deserve the support of free citizens. Take MAGA out of the Republican Party and there's not much left other than corruption, cronyism and self-serving treason. Those Republicans rejecting MAGA are not worth supporting.

The modern Democrats have chosen a path of open socialism, globalism and totalitarianism. An opposition party that will not stand against such abominations must be either reformed or shunned.

I really wonder if the present day GOP is worth fixing. The way things are now we probably don't have time to fix it. Patriots should only support trusted people committed to saving our constitutional republic and our way of life. We no longer have the luxury of rolling the dice and taking a chance on suspect so called lesser of the evil characters presented before us. Our world is under full-fledged attack by evil.

Yes, on 6 January 2021 the Republican Party formally killed itself.

Wow, what a political wimp; what an eager political fool.

For political neophytes like the congressman, the better wisdom is to know when to shut-up.

Congressman Greg Murphy gave a statement to WITN saying he held President Trump "responsible" for the invasion of the Capitol building. This is the guy who tried to wrap himself all around President Trump in his 2019 primary. Before that, he ran away from Trump in the 2016 legislative campaign. Talk about an opportunist flip-flopper.

Most of these Republicans go which ever the wind is blowing. We can now begin the weeding out process. There is another election in two years. We do not need to be touchy feely and understanding with these dead beat Republicans . There is no honor in hold your nose and vote Republican. This is an opportunity for conservative Republicans to run for office.

I wanted to like Adam Kinzinger, but he has proved to be too eager of a political animal.

Romney is finished.
( January 8th, 2021 @ 7:40 am )
America became a banana republic on November 3, and yesterday confiremed it. When a number of Republicans like Romney and Kinzinger were out there saying there was no fraud, they signaled to Democrats that they can just keep on stealing elections. Expect the Democrats to pass laws to make it easy to commit registration fraud and vote fraud and forcing states to go along..

Did you hear that 'Senator Ted Cruz and Senator Josh Hawley must be punished for their Treasonous Insurrection' for daring to speak and act against the "ruling class".

I am using these tremulous times to put checks by certain names of future leaders, and uncheck the names of others. Likewise, I suggest everyone pay close attention right NOW.
