Our nation is in peril, folks, and the hyperbole in Washington is so far out in right field at this point that it’s almost embarrassing.
President Trump’s legal and political options for challenging the results of the 2020 election are growing slim. Court cases filed by his legal team have gained no traction whatsoever – even at the Supreme Court level – and the DOJ has stated that they don’t see enough evidence of voter fraud to change the results.
The only maneuver left for Trump is to have Congress object to the results on January 6th, and the only guarantee with this action is a 2-hour debate in the Capitol on the subject.
And while President Trump certainly has every right to challenge the election both legally and politically, as he has, that’s where a civilized nation draws the line.
Louie Gohmert didn’t get that memo.
East Texas congressman Louie Gohmert suggested that “violence in the streets” may be the only remaining option to block Joe Biden from becoming president, after a federal judge rejected his lawsuit aiming to force Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the election.
U.S. District Judge Jeremy Kernodle, an appointee of President Donald Trump from Gohmert’s hometown of Tyler, threw out the lawsuit late Friday, ruling that he and other plaintiffs — including the GOP chairwoman in Arizona and that state’s defeated slate of Republican electors — lack standing. Late Saturday, a federal appeals court upheld the ruling.
Late Friday on Newsmax, Gohmert said he had sought redress in court “so that you didn’t have to have riots and violence in the street.”
“Bottom line is, the court is saying, ‘We’re not going to touch this, you have no remedy,’” Gohmert said. “Basically, in effect, the ruling would be that you’ve got to go to the streets and be as violent as antifa and BLM.”
The suggestion itself is unfathomable, and says far more about Gohmert than it does about the election and its disputed results.
We are a nation of law and order, and this provocation should not be allowed to stand.
