Given the facts are clear that apart from Democratic and Establican blatant election fraud, President Donald Trump overwhelmingly won re-election in a landslide (see EveryLegalVote.com, JoeCheated.com, HereIsTheEvidence.com, ElectionEvidence.com, MapTheFraud.com, et al), patriotic Americans are looking to the Jan. 6 official Electoral College certification in the hope that in his role as president of the Senate, Vice President Mike Pence will fulfill his constitutional and moral duty to rectify the attempted theft of the presidency.
Pence has the authority to either reject the fraudulent Democratic Electoral College delegate slates from seven contested states in favor of the Trump slate of delegates, or defer resolution to the House of Representatives, where each state delegation will cast a single vote to determine the “winner” of the presidency.
In an effort to clarify the constitutional constraints this week, Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert released a statement regarding the lawsuit filed against Pence:
“The 2020 presidential election was one we’d expect to see in a banana republic, not the United States. In fact, the rampant fraud and unconstitutional actions that took place were so egregious that seven contested states — Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — all sent dueling slates of electors to Congress.
“This puts Vice President Mike Pence in a position where some argue he has to choose between morality and the law. That is not the case.
“It is also critical to note that as many formerly in the mainstream media, now the Alt-Left media, continue to say that every court has said there is no evidence of fraud.
“That is disingenuous, deceitful and flat-out dishonest. The truth is that no court so far has had the morality and courage to allow evidence of fraud to be introduced in front of it.
“We continue to hold out hope that there is a federal judge who understands that the fraud that stole this election will mean the end of our republic, and this suit would ensure that the vice president will only accept electors legitimately and legally elected. There must be an opportunity for a day in court when fraud was this prevalent.
“It is for this reason that I and other plaintiffs have filed a complaint for expedited declaratory and emergency injunctive relief to seek judgment from the court on the vice president’s authority when presiding over the Senate during the Joint Session of Congress.
“We are asking the court to uphold the powers laid out in the United States Constitution which grant the vice president the exclusive authority and sole discretion in determining which electoral votes to count.
“As outlined in the filing, the Electoral Count Act is unconstitutional because it directs Vice President Pence to legitimize electoral votes in violation of the Electors Clause and limits or eliminates his Twelfth Amendment authority to determine which slates of electors should be counted and which, if any, may not be counted.
“This is fundamental, because no statute can constitutionally supply rules to the extent that such statute violates the U.S. Constitution.
“Thanks to spineless politicians, corrupt state officials and a coordinated effort to undermine the will of the American people in favor of business as usual in the D.C. swamp, we now find ourselves in a place where a stolen election becomes just another one of the miscarriages of justice this town refuses to remedy.
“The D.C. elites want to sweep these electoral injustices under the rug, just as they have done with countless other scandals such as the Russia-collusion hoax, the Biden-Ukrainian quid-pro quo,and Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information, to mention only a few.
“For the sake of the future of our Republic, come January 6th, Vice President Pence must be authorized to uphold the legal votes of millions of Americans and preserve our nation’s great experiment in self-governance.”
Given Pence’s long-time ties to the Deep State, it isn’t certain he will side with our constitutional republic and the outcome determined by the legal votes, hence the need for a lawsuit.
However, regardless of what occurs between now and Jan. 20 or in the days thereafter, those who have accepted Jesus the Christ as personal Savior and Lord need have no fear.
Over mankind’s history, empires and governments have risen and fallen, and civilizations have come and gone; yet as we are reminded in Heb. 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. (NKJ)”
It is said politics is downstream of culture. It is more accurate to say politics is downstream of morality. In fact, politics is often a reflection of the ongoing spiritual battle.
Eph. 6:12 says, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
In the surrounding passages, followers of Christ are instructed to prepare to stand and fight using “the whole armor of God” (truth, righteousness, the gospel of peace, faith, salvation, the word of God and prayer).
The reason Democrats and others on the Left (e.g., socialists/Marxists, anarchists, fascists) so rabidly oppose both God and the entire concept of absolute morality and non-subjective truth is because as their policies and actions clearly reveal, they are on the side of Satan in this spiritual war.
Leftists advocate killing preborn children, sexual immorality, corruption, relative morality (which, in truth, is no morality at all) and all manner of other deeds in direct opposition to God’s will for our lives.
Consequently, the Left has worked diligently through our institutions to fulfill their desire to excise God from not only the public sphere, but also from personal and private lives.
Stoking fear and crises, Democrats and Establicans continue to trample constitutional protections of our God-given rights as they illegally seek to enforce restrictions on churches, private business and individuals.
Other than the freedom to do whatever they please, the freedom of others is anathema to the Left.
For those who reject Almighty God, there are no true, immutable boundaries in life. Whatever one covets — be it political office, property, persons, life, liberty, thoughts, etc. — might makes right, relative morality rules that one can take, though one can only keep what one takes until someone mightier makes it their “right” to redistribute to themselves.
The truth is that no matter how hard those opposed to God may work, they will never diminish God or His ultimate authority.
It is certain that even those who reject Christ on this earth will one day bow their knees before Him as Lord.
Unfortunately for them, their rejection also means that they will also hear Jesus “declare to them, ‘I never knew you: depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness” (Matt. 7:23).
When it comes to eternity, in that sense, God is pro-choice and has given each of us that choice.
As callous as it may sound, repent or burn are truly the only two options available for we humans. The outcome of political elections does not change that. As the forces of Satan sow fear, corruption and havoc, take to heart the reminder found in II Tim. 1:7: “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
In the days and weeks ahead in these turbulent times, those of us who follow Christ should look to the end and use every opportunity to boldly share the Good News of Jesus Christ with a victorious spirit.
