Stop with the election decertification crap

Stop with the election decertification crap

Whether you believe that the 2020 presidential election was stolen or not, there is one thing of which you can be certain.  The 2020 election is NOT going to be decertified.  The only way President Trump will return to the White House is by winning the 2024 election … period.

There’s no reason for the election to be decertified because the popular vote does not elect a president.  That is the constitutional role of the Electoral College.  They are not bound by the popular vote – or the individual state votes.  Once elected as Electors, they can put any American-born citizen who has attained the age of 35 before Inauguration Day into the Oval Office – even me.  Once they cast those ballots, Congress plays a ministerial role of certifying each state’s electoral vote.

There is some potential for Congress to not certify specific states.  Though some members of Congress have voted against certification in the past – including Democrats voting against the certification of Trump’s election in 2016 – but there are never near enough to even come close to a reject even a single state electoral vote, much less to overturn a presidential election.

Once the Electoral College has voted and the Congress has certified it is a done deal.  No matter what is later uncovered.  Those who think that some new discoveries about the vote count – or various audits will flip the election – are simply wrong.  It is over … over … over.

Why Trump, himself, would say he believes that the election will be decertified is disturbing.  He should know better.  And his claims only make him look foolish and provide fodder for his enemies.  There is no benefit to Trump in giving false hope to his followers.  It did not work in the period between the election and the inauguration.  Mike Lindell’s promise that Trump would be in the White House in August was nonsense – even if he did uncover vote fraud and questionable anomalies.

Based on my own research, I know that there was vote fraud and irregularities that benefited Biden.  The proof is there to be found.  There may be more.  There is nothing wrong with engaging in forensic audits to see if there was significant corruption – BUT that will not affect the outcome of the election.

I can create hypothetical scenarios by which the popular vote count – and even the Electoral College vote count – might be wrong – maybe even enough to flip the election.  But those are only hypothetical games.  The outcome of the election is not going to be changed.

There is no chance that the Congress would produce enough votes to decertify the election – and that opportunity is long gone.  There is no chance that the Electoral vote will be changed.  There is no chance that the Supreme Court will step in to overturn the election.  No chance … zero … nada.

So, my recommendation is that those who oppose the radical left-wing agenda concentrate your resources and energy on two activities.

Whether it will change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election or not, we should pursue every suspected incidence of vote fraud.  There should be no controversy about that – whether you think the election was rife with fraud or you believe that American elections have no fraud. 

Secondly, conservatives operating through the Republican Party should put our entire effort into taking the House and the Senate – and governorships and state legislatures.  THAT is the most critical activity of the day.

For too long, Conservatives have debated over how the pie should be prepared and divided without sufficient consideration of first getting control of the pie.  If you want secure borders, defeat the open-border Democrats.  If you want an America first foreign policy, defeat the globalist Democrats.  If you want to put an end to trillion-dollar social spending at the federal level, defeat the socialist Democrats.  Winning the academic argument is meaningless unless you win the offices to implement the programs.  Enough of the pissing contest over who won the 2020 election.

So, there ‘tis.

    Larry,
    You sound like a broken record with this vote thing.
    You have to trust the plan. WWG1WGA. Biden is a shadow presidency and it’ll all be revealed soon. The military is in control of our great nation and they will turn the presidency over to trump any day now.

    Lol. Just kidding.

    Larry asks,”Why Trump, himself, would say he believes that the election will be decertified is disturbing.”

    Why give his cult hope? Come on Larry, you know why… it’s all a grift. If there’s hope, there’s a way to get the sheep to donate more money. I get texts and emails daily from trump and his people, extolling my patriotism and how important it is for me to donate to them to help overturn the election that rightfully belongs to trump. Nobody is donating if he were to say, “ hey, we lost, but how about you give me some of your hard earned money?”

    But if He says ,”the evil socialist, communist, pedo Democrats want to fundamentally change our country, donate money to help take it back and Maga!” The sheeple will dig deep in their wallets. ( just make sure to uncheck the “reoccurring donation” box).

    One enlightened Patriot.

    Does anyone really care about what YOU have to say about the matter? I think not.

    Larry, you can push for Republicans to give up the Big Lie all you want, but they have officially hitched their wagons to Trump’s fat ass. There are still roughly 90% who won’t come out and say “Joe Biden won, Trump lost”, even if they said it or voted that way before. The may think they are holding on to Trump’s base, but Trump is losing support every day, and they’re costing themselves votes. Fine, do it Trump’s way and lose your elections too!

    You can see it in the governorships – people like DeSantis and Abbott are doubling down on the Trump-like disregard for human life, and they are losing support and in danger of getting ousted in their next elections. If nothing else, just by losing a major share of their supporters! They’re being encouraged by the Republican Party to make Biden look bad by making his “numbers” look bad, but really, it’s only making the governors look like depraved monsters under the guise of “personal liberty”.

    As much as you like to bash Biden and the Democrats, it’s YOUR REPUBLICAN PARTY that is being really stupid.

    “Come on Larry, you know why… it’s all a grift.” The crux of the biscuit is the apostrophe. Follow the money every time.

    The J6 organizer made millions before no one entered that field to protest. Didn’t matter, he made millions.

    Trump’s war chest is over $100m and growing. He does not need the AZ recount to finish; he makes more money the longer it goes on. Next, he will cue up Pennsylvania one more time. It doesn’t seem to matter that it goes no where, the cash register just keeps ringing. And Trump uses the money to finance his lifestyle, expense all sorts of stuff to his own businesses, and all he has to do is spew shit and his faithful throw more money at him.

    Ninja Turtles is having their best year ever.

    Only the Pillow Guy is going to lose cash, and that’s mostly his own bad marketing. Trump has learned how not to put it one the line, how not to say anything direct, how not to get caught. Pillow Guy not so good at it; he posted a deadline for Trump regaining the throne. Bad marketing to pick a fixed date. Trump’s Ninja Turtle recount was a three week effort over six months ago; that’s how you keep the cash register going.

    Good article Larry, someone should say it, someone should tell the folks they are being grifted. And like the best grifts, they are being told they are being robbed, and yet they still feel the need to spend their cash to support the grift. That’s a good grift. Although Larry, on this one we have to disagree. I like the grift, enjoy seeing the chumps spend their cash for nothing but hot air, and the destruction of the Republican Party which started with the Tea Party, is almost complete. Can’t wait to see what replaces it, and how many parties and iterations until the next morphing. Good lesson for Democrats against our Progressive wing as well. Sure don’t want to follow this crooked path.

      I doubt that Trump has a war chest of $100 million. He’s got a lot of debt to service, and he spends money like a drunken sailor… most of that 100 mil has already passed through his pockets and staved off his creditors for another month or two… when he gets indicted, he’ll use what’s left for his lawyers’ bills.

    You can doubt, but as of the end of June….. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-07-31/trump-raised-56-8-million-from-online-donors-over-six-months

    While the PAC money has a lot of flexibility where to be spent, the info is pretty much public. He continues to raise a lot of money. He mostly spends it on himself, even though much is raised to support “the party.” He can spend it with his own businesses meaning he can spend it on himself and personally profit by spending donor money with his own businesses to support his lifestyle. He can also fund his plethora of legal cases, which is why he may be spending less than you think. He is preparing for the inevitable that only he knows all to well.

    But no, end of June, over $100M and look how fast he brought $50M in. Heck, the busted J6 protest guy got over $600k in weeks. This shit really sells to the stupid.

    The massive AZ Republican Cyber Ninja Turtle loss and late snow comedy fodder can mean only one thing.

    We need to recount in States that Trump won like Texas. I mean if we can prove fraud in a Trump-win state like Texas, then you just know they have to cheat even worse in battleground states he lost. It will be proof positive that the 50-lost-court-case Trump, his frivolous-case chastised and sanctioned legal team, and his half dozen failed recounts should be overturned as well.

    So please, faithful Trumpers, dial 1-800-dumb-shits, and contribute today. Any amount will do, because once we have your credit card or bank account numbers, we will donate the rest for ourselves and save you the time and worry. Don’t worry, we know what to do, we’ve done it before

    We also have a number of bridges, and Florida land parcels to sell at rock-bottom prices. Hey, they’re giving Florida away, there’s a lot of inventory becoming available lately in just the type of conservative neighborhoods you love. No mandates. Lots of guns. Oh hell, you don’t even have to be law abiden as long as you are personally free. And responsible to no one but yourself.
