Politically Speaking – December 15, 2020
A rant headline last week by a Detroit lawmaker said the video she made wasn’t meant to threaten Trump supporters, but she doesn’t regret it! Michigan State Rep. Cynthia Johnson, in a three-minute rant posted to her personal Facebook page, warned “Trumpers” to “be careful” and “walk lightly.” While on an interview last Wednesday evening, she said her words were purposefully misinterpreted so she could be removed from the Oversight Committee hearings focused on allegations of fraud in Detroit.
In my opinion, Ms. Johnson took the chance of inciting violence, and the last time I checked, that is against the law, especially when she went on to say, “For those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it. Do it right. Be in order. Make them pay. (She was referring to Trumpers.)
This woman, in my personal view, is nothing more than a “domestic terrorist,” and I’m not alone in those thoughts. Her comments sparked outrage from conservatives as well as some Democrats.
Violence and intimidation are never appropriate. Let me make it clear, threats against Democrats or Republicans are — and should be— unacceptable. In my opinion, it is totally un-American by anyone, but even more unbecoming of an elected official like Rep. Johnson.
The consequences so far are Rep. Johnson has been removed from her committee assignments, and further disciplinary action could be next as authorities have started their own investigation, possibly including the FBI. Michigan Attorney Dana Nessel, a Democrat, has also come out and denounced Johnson’s violent remarks.
In the aftermath of Johnson’s rant, sadly, she’s received threats, which I also find disturbing. Two wrongs never made a right.
Rep. Johnson did say after the fact that her message was not one that was intended against Trump people. She was talking about “peace and unity.” Huh? She can call it one thing. I choose to call it as it was, inciting and encouraging violence.
On to the Electoral College that meets on Monday, December 14. The deadline is December 23 for the electoral ballots to be sent to Congress.
Article II of the U.S. Constitution clearly specifies how the President is chosen by electors and how the votes for President will be counted, which we all should read and understand. This is especially true for the major networks since they have already declared Biden / Harris President Elect when the evidence points to fraud in more than one state.
There was a lawsuit filed in Texas with at least 18 states, including Arizona. They have joined in the Texas lawsuit filed in the United States Supreme Court on December 7 by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton against the States of Wisconsin, Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
The suit asked the Court to order defendant states’ legislators to displace “tainted” election results in those states and choose their own slate of electors.
The states that joined the lawsuit are Missouri, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Arizona.
Although all 50 states have certified, those filing the lawsuits have asked the Supreme Court for an emergency order to invalidate the ballots of millions of voters in battleground states.
The Supreme Court chose to not accept the case. For anyone who paid attention to this election, there can be no denying there was fraud in the four battleground states, among others. There was no election integrity.
However, the way this suit was filed, the Supreme Court had no choice but to rule the way they did, citing Article III. Only two Justices, Alito and Thomas, chose to accept the case. It takes four Justices.
The election results are under attack, and in my opinion, for good reason: Voter fraud. The American people are entitled to an honest election, no matter what party.
Food for thought: On December 2, in just one county in Michigan, using Dominion Systems they found nearly 6,000 votes had been wrongly switched from Trump to Biden and that happened across the board. Take a look at Georgia.
