  • The Framers’ President (July 2016)

    The pull of democracy often overwhelms societies. As men are naturally drawn to the scent of a woman, passion instead of reason lures societies toward all power to the people. Why shouldn’t our representatives, senators and presidents be popularly elected? Because democracy isn’t perfume but rather a poison that terminates in tyranny.In a recent post, I showed how the Framers designed their presidential election process around two goals. First, only men of national stature, wisdom, experience and public virtue would be considered. Second, the winner would assume office without any political debts whatsoever to a factional party or divisive segment...
  • Tech, Telecom Ban Donations to GOP Who Objected to Biden Certification

    Big Tech and Big Telecom are punishing GOP members in the House of Representatives and the Senate whose politics they don’t like. Amazon, Airbnb, AT&T, Comcast, Verizon (parent company of Yahoo! News) and Intel were all reported to be withholding donations. Their targets were any of the members of Congress who objected to certifying the controversial Electoral College results Jan. 6. That’s the same kind of objection that Democrats have used in the past three presidential elections where a Republican won (2000, 2004, 2016), albeit without the same level of backlash from the big-name brands. Apparently, GOP members of Congress...
  • Jim Jordan Blasts ‘Double Standards’ of Democrats: They ‘Objected to More States in 2017 than Republicans Did Last Week

    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) blasted what he called the double standard of his Democrat colleagues on the House floor on Wednesday, reminding Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) that he stood as the “first objector” to the results during the same process in 2017. “In his opening remarks, the Democrat chair of the Rules Committee said that Republicans last week voted to overturn the results of an election,” Jordan began. “Guess who the first objector was on January 6, 2017? First objector. The Democrat chair of the Rules Committee. And guess which state he objected to? Alabama. The very first state called,”...
  • Instead of the 25th Amendment, House Should Invoke 12th

    Townhall.com ^ | January 13, 2021 | John and Andy Schlafly
    While House Democrats improperly invoke the 25th Amendment to try to remove President Trump, House Republicans should be using the 12th Amendment to give him four more years. Last week 138 Representatives from 35 states voted in favor of Trump by objecting to the fraudulent Biden electors from Pennsylvania. dir="ltr">The significance of that vote in the wee hours last Thursday morning is that more than 2/3rds of the states, which is the quorum required by the 12th Amendment, objected to a central part of the election certification. That was after the electoral count was interrupted by the misnamed “insurrection,” so...

    Rep. John Katko, who represents the Syracuse area and New York’s 24th District, announced that he will vote to impeach President Donald Trump. Katko is apparently the first Republican member of the House of Representatives to announce his support. “To impeach a sitting president is a decision I do not take lightly,” Katko said in his statement. He said that, as a former federal prosecutor, he approached this question by looking at the facts. “The facts are this: last week, the U.S. Capitol was attacked by a mob intent on disrupting a Joint Session of Congress and preventing certification of...

    The aftermath of the 2020 election finds the nation unsettled, with legitimate concerns about election fraud overshadowed by the capitol riot and kooky conspiracy theories.The presidential election was close. Only 84 Electoral College votes separated the contenders. Widespread allegations of ballot fraud were claimed by national party chairmen in 11 states, with court challenges lasting into the middle of the year following the election. Changing the results in just two states would flip the election.The fraud allegations were serious, including dead people voting and votes far in excess of registered voters in some counties. Yet partisan election boards quickly certified...

    Texas Senator Ted Cruz is one of the few politicians willing to directly take on New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and it happened again on Thursday morning.It began when Cruz released a statement about the riot at the Capitol early Thursday morning. Cruz once again made his position clear that the destruction that happened was a major criminal act and that the transition of power from Trump to Biden will be peaceful.“The attack at the Capitol was a despicable act of terrorism and a shocking assault on our democratic system,” he tweeted while posting his full statement in images below....

    Trump supporters say that antifa members disguised as one of them infiltrated the protesters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. A retired military officer told The Washington Times that the firm XRVision used its software to do facial recognition of protesters and matched two Philadelphia antifa members to two men inside the Senate. The source provided the photo match to The Times. One has a tattoo that indicates he is a Stalinist sympathizer. antifa promotes anarchy through violence and wants the end of America in favor of a Stalinist-state. “No more USA at all” is a protest chant.

    The President Trump supporter killed in the Capitol building Wednesday is an Air Force vet from California who tweeted a day earlier how “nothing will stop us” and “the storm is here.” Ashli Babbit, who had 14 years in the service and did four tours of duty, was married and lived near San Diego, her husband Aaron told KUSI-TV. “I’m numb. I’m devastated. Nobody from DC notified my son and we found out on TV,” the husband’s mother, Robin Babbitt, told The Post, saying of her daughter-in-law, “She is a Trump supporter.” Everything is “pretty surreal,” added Aaron’s brother, Justin....
