When the Republic is on the Line Will the GOP be the Party of Neville Chamberlain or Winston Churchill?

The GOP today is the party of Donald Trump, but some Republicans just don’t know it yet. The failed GOP, the one that nominated John McCain and Mitt Romney for the Presidency, is dead.  Good riddance to it. The GOP survives this day only because Donald Trump rescued it in 2016. 

Some have suggested that if Joe Biden is sworn in that Donald Trump should start his own party.  Absolutely not!  Why go through the process building an entirely new party when instead he can clear out all the splinters of driftwood from the party of Abraham Lincoln?  There are, after all, far more Trump supporters than “traditional” GOP supporters.  Let the RINOs and squishes and the traitors in the Lincoln Project start their own party and see how much support they find. 

As part of this new reality, if the GOP wants the county to avoid a civil war or secession, wants the Republic to survive, or wants to avoid the United States of 2021 becoming the Weimar republic of 1933, they must do their Constitutional duty.  And that duty is to object to the electors of the states of Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Nevada when Congress meets on January 6th. 

In that meeting Congress will count the votes of electors from the various states and certify the winner of the election who will then officially become President Elect.  During normal times this is a rubber stamp process that basically certifies what was clear from the first Tuesday in November. 

But this time it’s anything but normal.  The only thing clear about the first Tuesday in November is that a fraud was perpetrated on the American people.  As such, Congress has an obligation to put things right.  But sadly the Constitution does not give Congress a great deal of leeway in terms of actually doing anything at that point, at least not when the houses are divided between parties.  Objections can be raised about any state’s electors assuming it’s raised by one senator and one congressman.  The problem is however, throwing out electors takes the approval of both houses, which there is virtually zero chance of achieving with Democrats in charge of the House.

The solution can be found by looking back to Watergate.  Richard Nixon resigned because he knew he would likely be impeached and found guilty following the Supreme Court’s ruling that the tapes had to be released.  It was then that it became clear that a sufficient number of GOP senators would vote to convict and that fighting was likely futile.  And that was only because by that point a majority of Americans supported impeachment.  The entire process took two and a half years from the break in to his resignation. 

Sadly, we don’t have two and a half years today.  We have three weeks to convince Americans about the fact that this election was indeed stolen and convince a dozen Democrat members of the House to support the objections to the electors submitted by those five rouge states.

And how do we accomplish that, particularly with a media hell-bent on ignoring the fraud?  By focusing on getting the message out to voters in places where races were tight.  We already we know that 17% of Biden voters inswing states would have changed their votes had they known about various issuesthe media buried. What will those same constituents think when they are shown the proof of fraud as well as the news on Hunter Biden that now has miraculously reemerged?  By the President, the GOP and their various supporters in the media and on social media being laser focused on constituencies where House Democrats won with the slimmest of margins, the GOP can seek to impel those representatives to seriously consider the proof. 

One thing is particularly important to note about the “failures” the media triumphs about the Trump team in front of the courts thus far.  While the fraud allegations have gone nowhere, that doesn't mean they’re false.  By design courts are not set up to work fast. Cases typically take time to prepare in a way that is consistent with court procedures, which is often the opposite of common sense. There is an extraordinary amount of anecdotal evidence that something is amiss, but demonstrating that in a court at lightning speed is difficult. It's like trying to build the wing of a plane while you're taking off. Prosecutors can take months building a case against someone for relatively simple crimes, and this is anything but.

Take the Fulton County, GA video for example. We all saw the video. Officials have said that there was no deception going on, but every American watched reports on election night stating that the counting had been stopped due to a "water main break". That turned out to not be true. Officials say that no one was asked or told to leave but we see the observers leaving en masse basically at the same time and telling everyone that they were told work was done for the night, which it clearly wasn’t.  And the video looks to show that someone ran through a stack of ballots multiple times.  At the end of the day Americans (including Democrats) can see with their own eyes that something unusual is going on with those "suitcases".

Add to all of that the plethora of anecdotal evidence of fraud and the fact that Democrats have literally spent decades trying to loosen the safeguards for voting security, such as opposing Voter ID, pushing for mail in balloting, same day registration, etc and it most definitely looks like the Democrats have been up to something deceitful. Then there is the time and resources that they spent trying to destroy the President with the Russian collusion hoax and the impeachment... Taken together all of this suggests that the Democrats will stop at nothing, illegal or otherwise in order to get Trump out of Washington.

Getting to the bottom of that all takes time and time is not something the President's team has. Their track record has been less than stellar, but unlike Florida in 2000 there is not one issue in one locale to focus on. This involves a minimum of 5 states, dozens of counties and hundreds or thousands of precincts.  Our court system is not set up to adjudicate fraud on this scale overnight, or even within a few weeks. 

As such, the GOP has an obligation to assure the American people that their voices will be heard.  Congress has an obligation to ensure that the selection of the President of the United States is legal and done according to the rules set forth in the United States Constitution and not by the machinations of scheming partisans in the dead of night, malicious computer code and the intervention of the Chinese Communist Party.  

If GOP congressmen and senators cannot or will not challenge the legitimacy of the elections then they deserve to be sent out to pasture.  If they do not do their duty of saving the Republic, on January 20th Donald Trump should announce that he is running for reelection in 2024 and that he will work to primary every single senator, congressman and governor who has not supported the cause.

Of course it may all be for naught if Biden is actually sworn in.  In 1933 Adolph Hitler was legally appointed Chancellor of Germany and immediately began the march towards tyranny.  The difference is, the Nazis hid their plans before they took power (at least as to the extent of the havoc they were prepared to wreak and their hatred for the Jews) while the Democrats have already told us what they are going to do:  Pack the Supreme Court, add four new Democrat senators, ban guns, defund the police and open the borders… All of this before they harness the Voting Rights Act to try and take control of the nation’s voting infrastructure.  

Examples abound from Putin to Chavez to Erdogan of dictators hiding their steel grip on power behind the fig leaf of “fair elections”.  If the GOP Senators and Representatives in Congress allow the blatant Democrat fraud in the 2020 elections to stand they should be primaried or impeached.  Either way, the GOP might never win another election and they will be responsible for the death of the Republic, whether it’s smothered in a web of partisan bureaucratic tyranny or it catches fire in a raging civil war. While the juxtaposition of Chamberlain and Churchill make for a vivid contrast of visions and actions that face Republicans, in reality it is Von Hindenburg they will be mimicking, as it was he who handed the reins of power to the Nazis.
