Let’s move on, reaffirm values of “American way”

By George Mischler

First, I want to say that barring the two Obama votes and now one for Biden, I have voted Republican since the second Nixon term. The extreme turn that the party has taken since the 2008 election has made me rethink my party.

When did we turn into the angry uncle of politics? When did we think someone’s opinion is a deadly affront? Was it before 2008, during the Bush II era? We the party were founded on equality, truth and, yes, the American way. What is that way you ask? That any person, no matter where they came from and becoming a citizen, what they called God or didn’t, could live here in America without being harassed, threatened, beaten or even killed as long as that life did not do the same to anyone else.

Every citizen has rights in this country, guaranteed rights put forth by our founders. The first one says I can speak up when I think we are being wronged, practice a religion or not. The second says I can have guns to defend myself and my country. The third says my property cannot be occupied by military without my consent. The fourth says I cannot be searched, held or trespassed on without due process.

I have watched these rights erode over the past 20 years to the point where it looks like we could fall into a banana republic.

These are strong words, but I back them up with the civil actions of the last four years and this past election. It is time to move on. Trump lost, without fraud or subterfuge. If he did not, why does the party or the lawyers not have the proof they so often espouse to? Trump was voted out.

Maybe we need a new party made of the best values of the two popular ones we have now. The American Party, based on our rights, not based on rhetoric. Follow our founding rights, civil rights, the Constitution and Bill of rights. I would vote for that kind of party. For now, I have to vote the lessor evil.

So, move on, get ready for the next election and, if you do not like the way country is run, vote differently. That is our right and the American way.

The author of this Banana Republic styled Op-Ed has clearly failed to see any news journalism sources documenting the massive 2020 National Election fraud spanning multiple states:

Again, without restoring our U.S. Constitution as the rule of law; and without restoring secure, free and fair elections across our American homeland, nothing else matters. Truth is a very powerful thing. We shall all learn soon enough if it can save our American republic in the coming days and deliver us from Evil.

"Trump was voted out." Still shaking my head that so many people fell for his bait and switch though. Then there is the campaign fund money that was diverted to family members, and the money people are STILL sending him to "stop the steal" going into his own pockets to do with what he wants including paying off his PERSONAL loans. Geez, the con never stops!
Mark House · December 20, 2020 at 12:52 pm

Hypocrites are ranging throughout the GOP. Check out what Trump's press secretary said about him BEFORE she became his Press Secretary. LOL.

JEFF - "Without restoring our U.S. Constitution as the rule of law; and without restoring secure, free and fair elections across our American homeland, nothing else matters. Truth is a very powerful thing."

Almost all will be restored once the King of Trumps is gone. All of those things listed in your comment did not matter to him.
Jeffersonian American · December 17, 2020 at 10:30 pm
SHORT-CIRCUITED, it is sometimes more time-effective to refer others to well-written article links and a variety of other reference sources. Sometimes the writings are entirely my thoughts; other times the referenced author is too good and too timely to be overlooked in this forum to dispel some of the Spectacular Lies being pushed in our local community by the Radical Left to undermine America and what remains of our constitutional republic.

NEWSMAX reports former national security adviser Michael Flynn says President Donald Trump has options to make sure the integrity of the 2020 election remains intact, including seizing voting machines around the country and using military capabilities to rerun elections in swing states.

''I don’t know if he’s going to take any of these options. The president has to plan for every eventuality because we cannot allow this election and the integrity of our election to go the way it is,'' Flynn said Thursday during an appearance on Newsmax TV.

''This is just totally unsatisfactory. There’s no way in the world we’re going to be able to move forward as a nation with this."

General Flynn added, "We can’t fool around with the fabric of the Constitution of the United States.''

There is a lot of history unfolding to preserve our constitutional republic. Stay tuned between now and January 6, 2021 and beyond, as the current constitutional crisis is taken up by stalwart members of the U.S. House and U.S. Senate. Then it goes to the House of Representatives, and each state has one vote, and this one vote is determined by the political makeup of the state legislatures. The GOP controls 29 state legislatures, and the Democrats have 19 (two are split).

Without restoring our U.S. Constitution as the rule of law; and without restoring secure, free and fair elections across our American homeland, nothing else matters. Truth is a very powerful thing. Too many Americans have died sacrificing for our God-ordained rights and our sacred right to vote to turn our backs on them now.

Thanks for reading. Christmas Blessings to all.

JEFFERSONIAN AMERICAN - The HISTORY here is that of a sitting POTUS ATTEMPTING to subvert a duly and fairly elected replacement for him. He is close to attempting SEDITION and TREASON, both punishable by law.

You are spouting nonsense and lies! Get a grip man!
Jeffersonian American · December 16, 2020 at 9:52 am
In response to ROVER 530 and FARMBUM, we are witnessing history unfolding before our eyes:

There is much, much more to take place before we get to 6 January 2020; and 20 January 2020, as our nation seeks to adjudicate the most infamously stolen national election in our U.S. History- even more egregious than the 1960 national election stolen by John F. Kennedy's Democrat Party:

No treason here- only constitutionally-provided safeguards in our national election process- as brilliantly put into place by our American founders long ago just in case of such a national emergency. Their foresight against future tyranny was quite remarkable. It is now up to WE THE PEOPLE to uphold and defend our state constitutions and our federal Constitution- WE THE PEOPLE must defend them- as everyone has witnessed in weeks they cannot defend themselves.
Rover 530 · December 15, 2020 at 12:58 pm
Interesting how JA always references articles in AMERICAN "STINKER", a radical far right-wing online website and blog which puts forth alarmist conspiracy theories and is highly pro-Trump and pro-Israel in its content.

Jeffersonian American · December 15, 2020 at 7:06 am
David Prentice, writing at AMERICAN THINKER, summarizes it well for those of us in America who want to have a country we treasure, one that will be worth saving. It’s calling all patriots, everyone who cares about our country, the center-right, moderates, independents; plus those sane Democrats who might be hiding.

Prentice continues, DEFCON-3, moving rapidly towards DEFCON-2. A cultural alert:

1. We just had an election that was stolen. The evidence is clear, the left colluded, and stole this. The collusion/coordination was massive.

2. Pollsters are saying 60% of the country now believes this election was fraudulent.

3. The entire country knows this issue isn’t going away.

4. More than three quarters on the center-right believe that. Almost half of independents. Thirty percent of liberals. Those are serious numbers. Real. And growing.

5. Those numbers make it clear to anyone with a sentient brain that we cannot survive as a country without fixing what happened.

6. Those numbers do not record the growing depth of white, laser-hot, righteous anger in over half of those on the center-right.

7. When twenty states join a national suit countering the fraud, coming from a normally milquetoast party, you know we’re in emotional purgatory.

8. When conservative justices signal that they aren’t interested in this lawless act, you know we’re in intellectual purgatory.

9. Those who colluded in this theft: our Democrat/media complex, the tech oligarchs, the foreign actors of China, and Iran, have been colluding long before this.

10. They colluded from the time Trump came down the escalator, manifesting their power long before his run.

11. They colluded on the mindless stupidity of the Russian witch-hunt.

12. hey colluded on the asinine Trump impeachment.

13. They colluded on preventing the American public from seeing the corruption and ineptitude of the Biden family leading up to the election.

14. And they will collude to destroy most of the goodness in this country.

Add those up: DEFCON-3, moving to DEFCON-2.

Because, if citizens don’t mobilize now, the left will make our country not worth saving. Not without an actual civil war. I don’t know about you, but I’m not there. I don’t want DEFCON-1. That’s the last resort, and close as we may be, we’re not there. Yes, many are prepared for that, but most are not willing.


The above-mentioned cabal of colluders: This is a group of actors that we cannot have in these United States and survive. They are hopelessly corrupt; they will lie, and cheat at the drop of a hat, they will continue to try to destroy the historically unique great things of our country without batting an eye. It’s who
they are. And until they are defeated, figuratively tarred and feathered, many put in prison, or driven from this country, we will be on the edge of civil war II.

Are you getting this? This is no joke. This is what the left has brought us to with their civilization-ending tactics and actions of fraud. They are the reason for DEFCON-3, not the average center-right voters who wants to simply live their dreams, aka pursuing happiness.

No. The left is jamming its geriatric, corrupt candidate down our throats with this fraud. If Biden actually were to be sworn in, you can already see the awful character of those he is picking to run our government. Their history is one of corruption and ethical depravity. You can see the awful things they want to do here and abroad. They are openly telling us what they will do.

This is a horrible thing to consider: A group that can successfully steal an election will know they can get away with anything. (CONTINUED NEXT POSTING)
Jeffersonian American · December 15, 2020 at 7:05 am
(CONTINUED): They want to rule us. They have made it clear. If you don’t know this, you haven’t been paying attention to what they’ve been saying, or doing.

Prentice continues, God help us if it goes beyond DEFCON-2.

Consider this: if people united, actually stood with conviction and fought for principles they would make a mark on history; as newly-minted Thomas Jeffersons and George Washingtons.

They might count for something.

Independents: Do not remain silent, fight against the hard left, before everything worthwhile is gone. The left destroys everything it touches, always has, always will. If they succeed in this theft, your lives will become disenfranchised too. You will not escape. The mob will come for you.

To Joe Biden and the Democratic Party:

It’s time to concede this election. If not, the fault for the carnage to follow will be laid at your feet. No call for unity from moral despots will be heard by anyone.

Democrats are now officially the party of total fraud and deceit. All who voted for these cretinous frauds, realize the seriousness of what the hard left has done. There is still time to regain integrity.

Make no mistake, I am not suggesting civil war. I am calling for actions to avoid one. Note to the Supreme Court: You can still be heroes. If lawless elections are allowed, there will no longer be a law left to adjudicate. You really can save this country. Do so.

The hard left cannot consolidate their election theft if we mobilize and unify against them.

This is what cultural DEFCON-3, moving towards DEFCON-2 means - be prepared. Mobilize.


And never give up. Freedom is a precious thing.

For now, the judicial process is ongoing among the States. Writer Andrea Widburg at AMERICAN THINKER also notes the historic occasion yesterday where Electors for President Trump are being presented to the Congress. We shall learn soon enough what will be determined to be the outcome. Widburg observes, on Monday 14 December 2020, seven states, in addition to having their apparently victorious Democrat electors cast their votes for president, also authorized Republican electors to cast their votes to make a record. It is a hopeful moment.

Widburg continued, she was sure other, better writers will write about what happened on Monday, but observed Monday was the day when the states designated their electors to cast the states’ votes for president. By day’s end, creepy, confused Joe Biden had 306 electoral votes.

Democrats are ecstatic, believing that they now have a signed, sealed, and delivered White House. They don’t.

The Supreme Court currently appears to be a craven institution. Many think the Court is sending a message saying that, if Democrat Senate candidates win in Georgia, giving both the White House and Congress to the Democrats, it will rubber-stamp everything the Democrats do. In this way, the justices hope to prevent court-packing that will diminish their prestige and cachet. Still, we might yet be surprised.

Widburg summarizes some of the key legal discovery to date here:

America, we are cursed to live in truly historic, interesting times over the coming weeks and months.
Rover 530 · December 14, 2020 at 5:11 pm
Americans now have proof that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election. The Electoral College has met and voted and He won a clear majority of votes in, as Don Trump described in 2016 with the exact number of Electoral Votes (306 to 232, 56.1% of the Electoral College vote), a landslide. Biden's legally cast 81 million votes to Trump's legally cast 74 million votes gives the incoming president 51.33% of the popular vote. In two tries, Trump never won the popular vote. Astounding. Thank God it's over and all that has to be done is for VP Mike Pence to read the results to Congress on January 6. That gives the Trump family 2 weeks to pack their belongings and move out.
Jeffersonian American · December 14, 2020 at 6:39 am
Come what may, we shall all learn soon enough in the coming weeks whatever may come of the 2020 National Election Evidence to be presented, and the fate of our rapidly disintegrating modern Empire- an Empire not established or ordained by our nobler Virginia forebears (George Mason, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, Richard Henry Lee, John Taylor of Caroline, George Wythe, Thomas Nelson, George Washington, James Madison, etc.,) and original American founders of our constitutional republic.

The question is, what will replace Mr. Lincoln's American Empire as it and what little remains of our U.S. Constitution, our U.S. Bill of Rights, and our traditional Judeo-Christian Rule of Law comes to an end across our American continent in our immediate future? The American citizenry is about to find out.

As we have witnessed in 2020 and in recent decades, our U.S. Constitution and our federative polity established by the supreme sacrifices of our American founders and Patriots is only suitable for a moral and religious people, as noted in 1798 by President John Adams:

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

If that isn't defamation, then what is it JEFF? The truth? Go ahead and try to use my words in a court of law. You will be thrown out on your head just like the Supreme Court threw Trump's attempt to usurp the duly elected President-elect of the United States, Joe Biden.
Jeffersonian American · December 13, 2020 at 8:45 am
I rarely engage in personalities in this forum Mr. House- I'd rather discuss history as it pertains to current events which directly impact all of us who are legal American citizens. However, you are in dire need of an American History Lesson: America was born in secession. It is among our peaceful, Natural Law Rights to Self-Determination. Below is just one scholarly article on the subject that I would encourage you to read before you accuse a life-long defender of our American constitutional government and U.S. Veteran of treason. My solemn oath to protect and defend our U.S. Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, upon joining our United States Armed Forces long ago as a teenager- and a second time as a Defense Department Civilian- has no Expiration Date with me. I have witnessed the rapid decline and fall of our internal moral, economic and military might from a vantage point you know nothing about in your public defamation of me. It's a good thing I write as our American founders did during the First American Secession from the British Crown- using a pseudonym- otherwise today, you would be subject to current defamation laws. And I would not hesitate to use them to defend myself in a court of law in your instance.

I consider President Eisenhower's standard- as our last truly great U.S. Commander-In-Chief- to be desperately needed again in our current time. President Eisenhower championed and presided over a nation- and a Federal Government- of laws and not of men. President Eisenhower quietly, efficiently, and effectively investigated and removed many thousands of Communists from our Federal Government bureaucracy (read: U.S. Civil Service) who had become embedded there during the previous Roosevelt and Truman years during his two Administrations spanning 1953-61. Today, the majority of American citizens would be truly outraged to witness what I have witnessed in recent decades- Democrat American Citizens inside the Department of Defense who hold SECRET and higher-level clearances openly cheering the election of a known documented Indonesian Citizen, Barack Hussein Obama Barry Soetoro as U.S. President in 2008 and again in 2012- and this after whose African Grandmother and African Aunt in Kenya gave sworn depositions in 2008 in their native Swahili language to three American Secretaries of State officials investigating Obama's eligibility to be placed on their state ballots- stating that they witnessed Obama's birth in Mumbasa, Kenya in 1961.

Following President Eisenhower's standards- all of these Democrats voting for a Usurper of our American Constitution and a known Committed Marxist working inside our Federal Government and Department of Defense should have had their backgrounds re-investigated and their Security Clearances summarily stripped; and removed from our Federal employment. As recently as the early 1970s, they would have been removed. The same case could be made for those who have actively undermined President Trump in our Federal, State and local Governments- legal U.S. Citizens in direct violation of our U.S. Constitution. Here is what President Eisenhower had to say about Communists in a 4 NOV 1953 Memorandum to his Attorney General, Herbert Brownell:

"The Communists are a class set apart by themselves. Indeed, they are such liars and cheats that even when they apparently recant and later testify against someone else for his Communist convictions, my first reaction is to believe that the accused person must be a patriot or he wouldn't have incurred the enmity of such people... I also believe that anyone who, after the blockade of Berlin began (or some other equally revealing incident) continued to speak in support of the Soviets or in terms of sympathy for them, is either very stupid or very dangerous."

(CONTINUED) Now imagine the massive fight ahead and constitutional crisis ** IF ** several state legislatures look the other way in the face of the brazen, massive election fraud which took place in their state elections in the coming historic weeks to allow a wholly illegitimate Democrat Party Candidate as the beneficiary of a stolen national election, Joe Biden, to be seated as our next U.S. President in violation of the rule of law written in our state and U.S. Constitutions. The overwhelming majority of Americans are not yet ready to live under a former Soviet-styled Communist society as its leader, Joe Stalin once noted, “Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything.”

Illegitimate and illegal, corrupt and mentally incapacitated U.S. President Biden and very dangerous U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris or not- this fight you should understand is not going away- it is only beginning by all defenders of our U.S. Constitution against all Committed Marxist Usurpers of that document.

Another peaceful, legal remedy- far more desirable than than Mr. Lincoln's Bloodiest Conflict of the 19th Century- would be for us as Americans to legally, peaceably separate as a last resort to violence; and to regain what has been lost in a new confederation of independent, sovereign states living under a purer form of constitutional government as originally bequeathed to us by our America founders and the many supreme sacrifices of our American Patriot forebears. My OPINION is the Committed Marxists across America today will not let us go our separate ways in peace. They need us more than we need them.

In a courtesy you don't extend to others or to me, I will politely ask you to read the following essay by one of America's most distinguished classical scholars- and educate yourself- and to stop threatening any Constitution-Conservative American citizen who dares to disagree with your Marxist Worldview- with scholarship and documented facts:

Fauquier Now - Shut Jeffersonian American down based on the following law:

18 U.S. Code § 2385.Advocating overthrow of Government -

"Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or

Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof—

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

As used in this section, the terms “organizes” and “organize”, with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons."

(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 808; July 24, 1956, ch. 678, § 2, 70 Stat. 623; Pub. L. 87–486, June 19, 1962, 76 Stat. 103; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(N), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)
Jeffersonian American · December 12, 2020 at 8:55 am
The key passage from the U.S. Constitution can be found here pertaining to the stolen 2020 National Election, " the (State) Legislature thereof may direct..."

Article II, Section 1, Clause 2:

Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.

To simplify, the "battleground states" identified in the Texas Supreme Court lawsuit saw their state election laws recently changed by non-legislative means by other "officials" acting outside of their state legislatures- clearly in violation of the U.S. Constitution.

Joe Hoft, reporting at GATEWAYPUNDIT.COM, in a shock to many who value justice, notes the Supreme Court turned down the Texas 2020 election case.

So individuals can take over the election process in certain predetermined states, enough to steal the Presidency or the House and that’s ok? There’s no impact on the rest of the country? A man who’s made billions on other countries at the expense of American citizens can steal an election using every possible opportunity to manufacture votes and steal votes from his opponent and it has no impact on average hard working tax paying Americans?

No one in their right mind believes the truly vile China Joe Biden won this election; and most Americans believe he stole it.

Today the CHICOM rulers may be drinking champagne in China (but the ruling by the Court was based on the jurisdiction and not the merits so there may be some hope). We will pray and fight but stopping the steal depends on President Trump. Will he fight on? Will he drop something?

There are still court cases in nearly every state of concern. Below is a summation of some major current open cases:

In Pennsylvania, the President’s attorney has a case he plans to take to the US Supreme Court. The couple congressmen from Pennsylvania still have a case at the US Supreme Court where they argue that how absentee ballots were processed in the state was unconstitutional.

In Michigan an Obama judge threw out Sidney Powell’s case claiming massive corruption in the election process in the state. The judge must think carting tens of thousands of ballots into a counting area with no Republicans present is entirely fine. Powell has suggested she will forward this to the US Supreme Court.

In Georgia Lin Wood has a case now at the Supreme Court. Sidney Powell has a case which was thrown out which she plans to bring to the Supreme Court. President Trump has filed an emergency petition with the Supreme Court in Georgia.

In Arizona the RNC and Sidney Powell both have cases they are sending to the Supreme Court.

In Wisconsin President Trump has a case in progress with the Wisconsin Elections Commission. I watched some of the proceedings- the citizens giving their sworn depositions to witnessing massive Democrat Party fraud in Wisconsin- truly despicable testimonies which should enrage all law-abiding American citizens. The States have the Plenary (unqualified; absolute) right to select the electors (as referenced in the above U.S. Constitution clause). The Wisconsin Legislature Representatives on hand were recommending motions to appoint their own electors under state and federal constitutions to remedy the massive scale, gross election fraud which- left undone- disenfranchises millions of lawful Wisconsin voters casting legal ballots which were otherwise manipulated, ignored, destroyed, or fraudulently tabulated by fraudulent software and computer hardware.

In Nevada its Supreme Court dismissed President Trump’s election appeal. We are not sure if this is going on to the US Supreme Court or not.

We have to decide are we willing to live in a country where Obama judges ignore justice and rule on their own desires?

Are we willing to live in a country where the FBI attacks honest courageous Americans for calling out corruption rather than deal with the criminals committing the corruption? (CONTINUED NEXT POSTING)
Jeffersonian American · December 12, 2020 at 8:51 am
(CONTINUED) Are we willing to live in a country where hard-working Americans pay for government excess and corruption while Democrats create non-profits so they don’t have to pay taxes?

Do we want to live where Democrat Elites make millions and billions sending our jobs overseas while allowing anyone to cross our borders?

Do we want to live where you are forced to wear a mask to stop a cold- like- flu that those under 75 are virtually immune to or be forced to take vaccines that may make us sick?

Do we want to live where Big Media is worse than the Pravda and Big Tech is worse – where lies are the truth and the truth is lies and where our every step and word are observed or censored?

Do hard-working, taxpaying legal American citizens want the Green New Deal imposed across our nation destroying jobs, families and our high standard of living? Do Americans really want $8.00 a gallon gasoline, $800 monthly electric bills in our near future? (before all low-cost energy and our traditional American Way of Life is eventually banned) as proposed in the Green New Deal?

Do Americans really want No Borders, No Language, No American Culture, No Rule of Law, no public morals, no meaningful, legal American citizenship in a post-constitutional wasteland? Do Americans really want to systematically eradicate and attempt to erase all of our American history? Truth be told, we lost our original republic of our American founders at Appomattox and Durham Station in 1865- replaced by Mr. Lincoln's Empire- which appears to has exhausted its remaining moral, ethical and governmental constitutional guardrails in recent decades- and it now appears to have exhausted its economic resources as well. What if Mr. Lincoln's Empire should go by the way of all the former Empires in world history (most recently the former Soviet Union) in the next few years or sooner? What will replace it? Others can ask themselves the question, "What would our world today look like without the United States in the 20th Century?" The answer to THAT question is quite obvious- we would be speaking German or Japanese or Russian or worse- we wouldn't be speaking at all- such as depicted in the historical-based films as "Life is Beautiful" or "Dr. Zhivago."

Traditional Thinking Americans do not want any of this. Today we fight on. We will never surrender our freedom. We will work through the courts and fight for justice. But we will never live in tyranny.

President Trump has exercised remarkable restraint to date amidst a sea of corruption all around him; and I suspect the Deep State and his Political Swamp Enemies are trying to see if the lawfully elected President of the United States has the fortitude to use the Insurrection Act and/or enact E.O. 13848.

I believe there is a very good chance that he will- with the full faith and affirmation of a majority of Americans behind him, should these measures become necessary after all reasonable, timely legal avenues are exhausted.

James Arlandson, writing at AMERICAN THINKER, suggests we don’t need a U.S. Supreme Court ruling to restore the rule of law in America to determine the outcome of the 2020 National Election. He itemizes the legal remedies ahead that should favor the lawful re-election of President Trump. The Texas suit, later joined by other states, against Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Georgia, was a nice try, but it was always a long shot. Of course SCOTUS would be reluctant to grab so much power by ordering state legislatures to seat the right electors. Why? Because the power is already in the hands of the legislatures to do this.

Arlandson notes therefore, we don't need SCOTUS to win, and we never needed it.

So what happen next, and what can Traditional Americans do now?

First, we can keep up the pressure on the legislators of those five GOP states to select electors who will vote for the rightful winner, who is obviously Trump. Some of the members in these legislatures may suffer from TDS, so the message must be sent that they have to set aside their irrational opposition and do the right thing.

Second, Sidney Powell's legal team can continue with their lawsuits, so they can expose and uproot Dominion Voting Systems. Now the goal will not be to overturn elections, but to get rid of the flawed, rigged system. This goal is much more realistic and easier to accomplish. The court cases will take a long time. But that's okay, because they keep in the public view the "fake president" and 2024, if Biden (unjustly) prevails.

Third, we must counter the left-wing pressure, including their threats of violence, that will be thrust on these little known state politicians. Without threats of violence on our side, we can still stand firm to support and defend them.

Arlandson notes the battle is not over; and that it was always going to boil down to the legislatures without SCOTUS. If we keep up the fight, we shall win with knowledge and the law on our side.

Supreme Court dismisses bid led by Texas attorney general to overturn the presidential election results, blocking Trump’s legal path to a reversal of his loss.

"The text of the 14th Amendment expressly forbids Members of Congress from engaging in rebellion against the United States.
Trying to overturn a democratic election and install a dictator seems like a pretty clear example of that."

The Bolsheviks- so close to their coveted 100+ year goal of overthrowing our American constitutional republic at local, state and national levels- they still are seething when the sunlight of Truth is beamed upon them and their deeds as their Fellow Travelers very revealingly express below repeatedly.

Larry Johnson, writing at, notes with each passing day the evidence of electoral fraud in the Presidential election mounts. Other than the excellent reporting by the Gateway Pundit, One America News (OAN), Newsmax, and a few other honest journalism teams, most of the media— both print and electronic— are engaged in a full blown propaganda campaign to try to persuade the American public that claims of fraud are debunked conspiracy theories. Not since the bad old days of the Soviet Union have we witnessed such contemptible lying.

The Democrat plan to steal the election went beyond the old tactics of voting the graveyard. This time it included manufactured ballots with only old Joe Biden’s name attached and voting machines that would count those ballots in multiples while counting Donald Trump votes as less than one. All of these machines had a software backdoor that was accessed by Democrat operatives and their Silicon Valley helpers as well as the Chinese. Using this combination of manufactured ballots and machine manipulation, the results in six key states are fraudulent and more than sufficient to prove that the Fraudulent votes exceeded Biden’s alleged margin of victory in each of these states. Consider these facts (thanks to Patrick Basham’s excellent analysis):

President Trump received more votes than any previous incumbent seeking reelection and any previous candidate seeking election. He received 12 million more votes than in 2016 (and that are just the votes we know about); an increase of more than any incumbent in history.

Trump grew his support among black voters by 50 percent over 2016. Nationally, Joe Biden’s black support fell well below 90 percent, the level below which Democratic presidential candidates usually lose. Trump increased his share of the national Hispanic vote to 35 percent. Midwestern states Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin always swing in the same direction as Ohio and Iowa, their regional peers. Ohio likewise swings with Florida. Current tallies show that, outside of a few cities, the Rust Belt swung in Trump’s direction. Yet, Biden leads in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin because of an apparent avalanche of black votes in Detroit, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee. Biden’s ‘winning’ margin was derived almost entirely from such voters in these cities, and coincidentally his black vote spiked only in exactly the locations necessary to secure victory.
Biden won with a record low of 17 percent of counties; he only won 524 counties, as opposed to the 873 counties Obama won in 2008. Late on election night, with Trump comfortably ahead, many swing states stopped counting ballots. In most cases, observers were removed from the counting facilities. Counting generally continued without the observers. Statistically abnormal vote counts were the new normal when counting resumed. They were unusually large in size (hundreds of thousands) and had an unusually high (90 percent and above) Biden-to-Trump ratio
Missing votes. In Delaware County, Pennsylvania, 50,000 votes held on 47 USB cards are missing. Non-resident voters. Matt Braynard’s Voter Integrity Project estimates that 20,312 people who no longer met residency requirements cast ballots in Georgia. Biden’s margin is 12,670 votes

Serious ‘chain of custody’ breakdowns. Invalid residential addresses. Record numbers of dead people voting. Ballots in pristine condition without creases, that is, they had not been mailed in envelopes as required by law, statistical anomalies. In Georgia, Biden overtook Trump with 89 percent of the votes counted. For the next 53 batches of votes counted, Biden led Trump by the same exact 50.05 to 49.95 percent margin in every single batch. This same scenario happened in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

The truth of the 2020 election is that Donald Trump won an historical victory. But the Deep State, those who profit from war and cozy relations with the Chinese and an international order that sacrifices American workers, are keen on eliminating Trump. (CONTINUED NEXT POSTING)

It remains to be seen if Donald Trump will prevail in the U.S. Supreme Court and the Congress. The future of the American Republic hinges on this moment. So far, the Department of Justice and the FBI have been missing in action. If they fail to do the right thing and uphold the law and bring the guilty to justice, there marks the official end of the 244-year-old American experiment in self-government under Natural Law Rights.

When 100+ million estimated Trump voters and American citizens see the steal, and when the legislatures and courts do nothing, it is called corruption. More than that, it is corruption so deep, so pervasive and widespread, that we are at a loss for words.

It now appears possible that Joe Biden will successfully steal the presidency from the voters. As ludicrous as that sounds, the reality is slowly beginning to sink in. There is no shortage of evidence; there is no lack of witnesses. Worse yet, the consequences of the crime we are all witnessing will not be merely one team winning and the other losing. It will be the end of our American republic, and for those who are witnessing it, there is no hyperbole in that foreboding. There is no "unity" under an Illegal, Unconstitutional Biden/Harris Regime. And such a stolen national election will lead to events too horrible to contemplate.

America as we've known it since 1865 may come down to this U.S. Supreme Court decision to stop the stolen 2020 national election in the coming days:

Jeffersonian American · December 9, 2020 at 9:29 am
Unfortunately for the OP-ED Writer and all the rest of law-abiding former American citizens, there is no "move on" to the next election in our former American country, or any notion of "vote differently" when our former American republic has been "fundamentally transformed" into a Banana Republic no different than voting in Cuba, Venezuela, and a host of other Third World African backwater sewers of corrupted "elections" where the sovereignty of the individual is brazenly thrown out and discarded or otherwise manipulated by hostile foreign vote tabulation systems and software, no voter identification, no security controls, etc.

What we have here in 2020, if not overturned by the state legislatures, high courts and the people acting under our state and federal Constitutions, is the official end of free and fair elections by a free American people- and an opening of the Gates of Hell across our former American continent.

Truth Deniers, President Trump did win reelection by an overwhelming margin when only counting all legal votes under a legal vote counting process to actually count those legally-cast votes.

The fight for freedom has never stopped. While we slept, tyrants schemed and grew in the darkness. Now Democrats are doing it in broad daylight and law-abiding, Traditional American citizens still aren't doing enough to stop this attack on our Constitutional republic. Not yet, at least. You see, The People Are the Government, as currently structured in the state legislatures under our constitutional republic of our American founders. Ultimately, it is WE THE PEOPLE who must defend our state and U.S. Constitutions- they cannot defend themselves. Law-abiding Traditional Americans need to speak out now and demand their legislators take action to stop the 2020 National Election Steal both in their states and nationally.

Democrats used the virus as the excuse for unauthorized changes to procedures during an election year- but state and U.S. Constitutions are not subject to temporary health conditions. Making it easier to cheat is the real reason for the changes. Mail in votes with no ID or signature and delayed and extended counting make fraud much easier. Fraud in a Presidential election affects the whole nation. Just as the U.S. Supreme Court made a decision in the 2000 Bush v. Gore election, it should make decisions regarding the results in WI, MI, PA, GA, and other states where unauthorized changes were made and the evidence of fraud is overwhelming, already proven, and documented- and more evidence is pouring in every passing day.

In the biggest crime in American election history, the Democrat Party rather sloppily and brazenly engineered Joe Stalin to count the votes in America during their "Election Season" and massive "Unconditional Mail In Ballot" scheme to steal the national election with foreign owned and controlled Dominion voting systems in at least 30 states at last count (but Democrats this year forgot to worry about the U.S. House of Representatives in their sloppy scheme, though- as the number of Republican gains in the House continues to increase with each passing day, reflective of the massive turnout and coat-tails President Trump had in the recent election he won in a landslide that saw Republican gains in the U.S. House, state legislatures, and other races, among President Trump's 80+ million votes that we know of. The Republican-controlled state legislatures, the Big Government Republican Party Establishment and even the Trump Administration itself failed to take decisive action to prevent the very predictable 2020 National Election Steal by the Joe Stalin Democrats, giving us the ongoing national calamity we now face. Several U.S. Senate races were also stolen by the Dominion voting systems by the Democrats as well. Virginia's elections have been in the sewer, rife with election fraud, for much of the past 35 years as well.

Just because ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC or Telemundo doesn't report the fraudulent voting crimes that were and are still being committed doesn't mean it didn't happen. The Committed Marxists below say they want proof; say they want verification- well, just open you eyes and ears, it's not like the Democrats' Unknown Whistleblower or Anonymous Sources. There are names and signed legal affidavits under penalties of perjury and videos of the corruption. What most Americans would like to know is where in the hell are our Elected Professional Politicians and their coming forward wanting answers? The Swamp is in hiding as are the Federal Judges. They can't continue to keep their heads buried in the sand, however, as eventually, Truth will prevail. The Day of Reckoning will eventually come for those who undermine truth. At the very least, all of these so called American citizens that have lied , cheated, and committed treason need to be tried and convicted in the highest court possible.

The evidence is all around us if the Truth Deniers below wish to educate themselves. They can start by reviewing the evidence presented at these actual news journalism sources:

"A republic, if you can keep it..." as Benjamin Franklin forewarned.
Demosthenes · December 6, 2020 at 10:35 am
Jeffersonian has proven he is really bad at predicting the future. Just a couple of weeks ago he was predicting that Trump would win the election in a landslide. Lol.

But his predictions for the Bolshevik revolution to come under Biden don't hold up well either. If the left were really planning to turn America into a Stalinist or Maoist state wouldn't they have already done that under Obama? What have they been waiting for?

Though if he really is certain that democrats are planning on turning the US into the 7th ring of hell then he should follow the advice we so often hear from conservatives - America, love it or leave it! JA - let us know if we can help pack your bags or drive you to the airport!
karl engels · December 6, 2020 at 10:16 am
You’re detached from reality
Jeffersonian American · December 6, 2020 at 6:29 am

Michael V. Wilson expresses it well when he observes as the 2020 election recedes in our rearview mirror and the Godless media relentlessly push a false narrative that "Biden won," it's instructive to consider just what price America — and you, dear reader — will pay if evil becomes established by law.

If President Trump keeps his promise to concede if the Electoral College votes for Joe Biden, we can expect to see many more things declared evil by law. The Christian desire to play fair, obey the law, and not start fights will be weaponized against us.

The Bolshevik Left believes that whatever is passed into law is moral because it's the law. The intrinsic differences will be ignored as leftists outlaw anything they don't like and mandate whatever they approve. With the power of government at their disposal, the left will harass, cancel, fine, arrest, imprison, and eventually execute anyone who disobeys their evil laws. No excuses will be allowed, and forgiveness won't be an option.

Fellow Fauquier Citizens, you are watching it emerge on these very pages from some of these now-emboldened Democrat Bolsheviks and lesser, ignorant Biden/Harris supporters of their brazen, lawless attempts to steal the 2020 national election before your eyes. You see they are just fine with massive election fraud if it supports their objective to destroy the United States of America as we've known it.

The specifics of the left's plans are irrelevant, because all its efforts will lead to the same dismal result: America as we know it will never be the same. It might survive as a single country or become balkanized along regional lines or state lines. My study of history suggests if the current Bolshevik Revolution is not stopped by the high courts and state legislatures as provided by our U.S. Constitution, then our former American republic will go by the way of the former Soviet Union- collapsing in upon itself like a corrupt, fiscally insolvent house of cards. This was the "insolvent phantom" which President Dwight Eisenhower warned us might come to pass in the future- as he delivered his heartfelt, 10-minute, Farewell Address of 17 January 1961. In one of the most far-ranging and substantive Presidential addresses since George Washington's 1796 Farewell Address, the 1961 Farewell Address by President Eisenhower has gone down in American history as one of the very greatest speeches. Sadly, everything President Eisenhower warned us about has come to pass. You may watch "live" as it happened on 17 January 1961 here:

If our nation survives as a single country after the lawless elevation of BIDEN/HARRIS (and we know why Harris was placed on the ticket, who was otherwise unelectable), it will become a totalitarian state like Communist China. Freedom will die, gulags and re-education camps will spring up, and the midnight knock will become the new normal. It will become a dark, blighted country, the 21st-century version of Mordor.

If America is balkanized, the new countries will vary from dictatorships to free-wheeling democracies- and some constitutional republics based on Jeffersonian ideals and principles found in the Declaration of Independence and Mr. Mason's Bill of Rights. Those with abundant resources and/or limited governments will flourish. Those with limited resources and/or authoritarian governments will suffer or go to war with the others.

It won't happen overnight, but it will happen a lot faster than you think.

Ignore those who spread Spectacular Lies below "...There is nothing to see here! Show me the proof!" Fauquier Citizens, the proof is everywhere for any reasonably intelligent Third Grader to look up on the few remaining honest news sources and television journalism sites including NEWSMAX and ONE AMERICA NEWS (OAN) for starters. And yes, we shall learn soon enough if our high courts and state legislatures will uphold their state constitutions or the U.S. Constitutions- the last guardrails of our freedom and liberty before mass scale oppression, fiscal and property confiscation, terror, murder and mayhem are unleashed by A New Democrat Communism across our former American continent.

Fauquier Citizens, which side are you on? American Constitutional republic or the wholly illegitimate, Banana Republic BIDEN/HARRIS Regime?
Demosthenes · December 5, 2020 at 9:47 pm
Jeffersonian American -

You had been so absent for the last few weeks. I seriously wondered if you had suffered a brain aneurysm when you realized that the majority of Americans do not share the view of America that you and Donald subscribe to.

While I am honestly glad to see you are still among the living, I am so disappointed to see that you are back to posting misinformation on our local news pages.

Obviously if the election is the fraud that you claim it to have been, then Trump's lawyers will find success in court.

If not, well, what explanation do you have?

And I continue to say that you and others like you are dragging down the Republican party and preventing it from being a legitimate option for decent Americans. Seriously, if you care about the country or the Republican party please just stop.
karl engels · December 5, 2020 at 3:35 pm
Remember everyone, make sure you check in on your ultra conservative relatives lest they end up like ja, had to deal with a family member this morning telling me that China knowingly released tens of millions of infected peoples into the world to spread covid lol. And I’ve gotta say the American way that I’ve come to know just happens to be that of stolen land, genocide, and racial oppression so yeah who else is ready to get back!!
