On Dec 4 (yesterday) Donald Trump wrote this at Truth Social:
“Do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.” (Not sure who used the ALL CAPs, Trump or the media who reported it.)
Trump also accused “Big Tech” of working closely with Democrats:
“Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!
Trump was right of course, but within hours the leftwing media was awash with headlines, The Hill rushing to confuse what Trump wrote about election integrity and his willingness to dump the Constitution with the travails of the Hunter Biden story.
I had to search for the actual Trump quote and found it at CNN, date-stamped 4:34 PM Dec 4 (yesterday) by a millennial writer they first hired in 2016 for the Trump-Hillary campaign (which Trump won btw) by the name of Kristen Holmes, and whose net worth is listed at $2 million. (To her credit, she is married to a guy.)
Now, my own long and windy essay, dated just last week, Nov 30, and titled: “Natural Law, the Need for a Voter’s Bill of Rights” from SCOTUS, and ASAP” was about this every same trauma being visited on our Nation by unscrupulous political players who made their first buck in government by figuring out how to make a buck out of slavery rather than wear themselves down arguing about it all the time. That was in 1824, and the name they gave themselves was “The Democratic Party”.
Since the Constitution was silent on slavery, and everyone knew it would never be amended to allow the end of it, everyone knew that the slavery issue would only be resolved with civil war. Once that civil war happened the Constitution had to be amended to reflect the new reality; that slaves would become citizens only by amending the Constitution, which they did on this day in 1865, 157 years ago.
(See what almost has to comes first.)
Now, so far, with elections we’ve gotten this far without a shooting war…well, for the most part…and all Donald Trump was commenting on was the similar state of affairs between “free people” and “free elections”, for the freedom of choice in federal elections, and the devaluation of a single citizen’s vote, are dribbled into insignificance if the state and local governments can control so many different aspects of the way voting is conducted and counted.
It’s true, the Art 1, Sec IV of the Constitution grants the states control of House and Senate elections,
The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislatures thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators
And the 12th Amendment covers the procedures for voting for President, but again, the process of voting entirely up to the states.
And we all know what that has meant, namely that citizens can be deprived of having their votes counted depending entirely on the political aims of the competing parties.
You know all this.
Every citizen, EVERY citizen, has standing to take this claim to the federal courts. Period. And the Supreme Court is enable to tell the Congress how such an Amendment should read.
And it should be done quickly, just as (President-elect) Donald Trump suggests.
