VP Pence can ‘Stop the Steal’ & Keep the Peace

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” (Edmund Burke) I suspect Vice President Mike Pence has quoted that many times. January 6 might be his opportunity to live out his day to be the good man who stopped evil.

About half of our nation understands that Trump’s outperforming any prior president, his state and county victories that are historically indicative of a national victory and outperforming any Republican candidate among minorities since the 1960s make it a statistical impossibility that Joe Biden could have won.

At least some are quite aware of the numerous credible allegations of massive fraud, the first in our nation’s history of vote counting coming to a stop in what appears to be coordinated across the battleground states, followed by statistically impossible vote hikes in Democrat controlled cities.

Even being confident of that, many have abandoned the battle. Perhaps they see avoiding conflict as a path to peace, but the reality is there is no peace through an illegitimate election. And as I wrote here, Joe Biden created a situation where he has no path to a legitimate victory.

Allowing the election to be stolen would rip our nation apart. We must work this out now. While the genius of our Constitution provides numerous mechanisms to do that, most people in such roles have looked the other way and failed their constitutional duty. They are either crooks or cowards.

We may indeed be down to the last one, which is the role of the Vice President as the presiding officer over the Electoral College vote count on January 6.

The U.S. Constitution states, “The President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted.” Nowhere in that language is counting the votes delegated to anyone and it would take a constitutional amendment, not simply statutory language, to accomplish that.

History shows that the count being determined by the President of the Senate was well understood, even in potentially controversial situations in 1796 and 1800 and it has served our nation well as this 2004 article (linked below) points out, while trying to make the case for a change.

There is no person who does not have a bias, but while both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson had the most to gain in their respective situations, they also had the most to lose if they made the wrong decision for the nation. So as this article argues they both made a decision that resulted in the most peaceful outcome, which has benefited generations of Americans and people throughout the world.

While this article tries to argue that luck ruled, I believe a mix of providence and wisdom is more fitting. (Sources: U.S. Constitution and Virginia Law Review article titled, THOMAS JEFFERSON COUNTS HIMSELF INTO THE PRESIDENCY.)

That is a very strong precedent and reasoning and once again for the sake of peace in our nation, unless the alleged election fraud is dealt with by the state legislatures and they appoint electors before January 6, Vice President Pence has a constitutional and moral duty to reject electors from states with two slates of electors and unresolved fraud allegations or that followed unconstitutional election laws.

Rejecting electors may be disputed to SCOTUS, but then perhaps they will finally have to look into the serious allegations of widespread fraud, including election law-making by state entities other than the legislature.

Counting fraudulent electors would disenfranchise about 50% of voters and be a slap in the face to our fellow Americans who at great personal risk formally stood up against election fraud. These folks deserve a hearing and Vice President Pence must stand up for these good men and women who did take their stand against evil.

In hockey lingo, the Vice President as the presiding officer over the Electoral College count is the goalie. His five teammates on the ice have all fouled out and are in the penalty box and only he is left to keep Biden’s team (including the MSM and big-tech oligarchs) from pushing their puck (Joe Biden) into the goal.

The noise is loud and distracting, yet the outcome will allow an election wrought with fraud to determine if our government thinks in terms of individual people and individual nations or if it falls to a collectivist viewpoint with misguided views that a single global order can deliver peace.

The Biden campaign has had plenty of time to help clear up these highly suspect elections, but they have shown no interest. As such, they are wholly responsible if things are not resolved before the elector envelopes are opened on January 6, as are each of the other constitutional safeguards that failed when called upon to guard our elections, including the press.

It should be made clear that these failures in duty are why challenged electors cannot be counted.

Perhaps some passed on their duty out of concern of the far-left mobs that showed their destructive capabilities this year. However, the worst option would be to cower to those small mobs that cowardly terrorized unprotected localities. These people should have no opportunity to influence the direction of our government.

The patience of the Trump voter cannot be overstated. For decades they have tried the normal political processes, but normal failed. The courts have failed again and again.

So 68 million Americans bet on a man who was outside the Washington political establishment, and that turned out to be an incredibly good bet.

If this election is allowed to be stolen, we will no longer be a nation run by the rule-of-law. All peaceful options will have been exhausted for the majority of Americans who are law-abiding citizens.

Unlike the small mercenary mobs we have seen this year, America will have tens-of-millions of rightly angry Americans defending their very way of life – their family, their property and their faith – from an outlaw-government.

The seriousness of our situation cannot be overstated. The election must not be allowed to be stolen.

The only thing that will allow Joe Biden to continue pretending he won the election after January 6 is if the good man presiding over the Electoral College count does nothing with the constitutional power wisely given to him to do good for his country.

We must help our fellow Americans come to terms with what is at stake and together build a wave that lifts as many Americans as possible to their feet to defeat this crime against all citizens of our nation.

  1. Pence has to open “all the Certificates”. It is wrong to suggest that he can ignore those he considers illegal. Even if Gohmert had won the case giving plenary power to Pence, he still must open all the Certificates.

    Trump wants as many patriots as possible to come to Washington on Jan 6th because its going “to be wild”. What’s wild about counting the votes. What’s wild about debating for up to two hours each even if new evidence is presented. After all the arguments and the evidence, to succeed a majority of Senators must refuse to accept the Certificates for Biden. Given the reluctance of the Republican Senators to step up, this will not happen.

    Surely Trump isn’t counting on Jan 6th to win the day. So to my mind, he can’t gamble on it. I haven’t read of anything that he could do after Jan 6 to prevent Biden’s inauguration short of Declaring Martial Law to suspend the Constitution and Biden’s inauguration. But how can Martial law undue the counting of his electors on Jan 6th? So I think he must act before Jan 6 or at the latest, before the counting of the votes.

    I think it will be “wild” because of what he is going to do. As one person in the know said, “Its going to get ugly”.



  2. “Virginia Law Review article titled, THOMAS JEFFERSON COUNTS HIMSELF INTO THE PRESIDENCY.)” Wrong link or they took it down…..which wouldn’t surprise me.

  3. The mask of VP Pence is about to come off on Jan. 6th. A controlled, measured man, will he take the status quo or will he denounce the overwhelming evidence of election fraud. Will Pence aid and abet the coup against America and our Constitution by certifying the present electors, the status quo, or will he have courage to stand against a corrupt election? My guess, status quo…hope I am wrong.

  4. The link to Jefferson discounting the Federalist electors appears to be broken. I found it here: https://legacy.virginialawreview.org/volumes/content/thomas-jefferson-counts-himself-presidency

    That VLR article seems to indicate that there is precedent that the President of the Senate has the power to discount electoral votes. However, the passive tense at the end that key sentence leaves some room for debate (i.e. “…the votes shall then be counted.”) Whether the VP has the power to do this should force the hand of the SCOTUS, which very clearly has shown no interest in adding wind to this political hurricane. Pence has nothing to lose by choosing not to count what he considers fraudulent electoral votes. I think Pence, with Trump in his ear, will do the right thing; then the SCOTUS will rule against him.

    1. SCOTUS has no jurisdiction in this. The separation of powers doesn’t give SCOTUS the ability to intercede in a Congressional process.

      1. SCOTUS didn’t have jurisdiction in the Bush v. Gore contest either, until they did. If Pence decides that some electoral votes should be thrown out due to “irregularities,” it seems to me that the Dems would have no other way to contest it without going through the judicial branch. Or what do you think would happen at that point. Dems will simply give up, saying, “I guess you’ve got us there, Mike. Well played.”

  5. The stolen election of 2020 will tear our nation apart. Sadly, I think.thay the VP will accept the Electoral ballots at face value. He will do so in the belief that by so doing, our country can be spared ARMED CONFLICT, among ourselves!

    When BIDEN is sworn onto office on January 20, 2021, a series of events will rapidly unfold that may well bring about the final countdown towards our destruction as a United society.

    Turmoil, chaos and instability are in our future. The DEATH of our nation is assured. The Rule of Law, no longer applies to the CORRUPT members of our Rulimg.Class. BIDEN may well be the most CORRUPT President ever, and he may well be the LAST to occupy the Presidency of our soon to be defunct nation

  6. I don’t know what Pence will do on Jan 6th, but the idea that this will calm down is ludicrous. The Deep State of dems and rinos will never accept any decision Pence makes. Trump either will never concede. This will get very, very ugly and American patriots need to stand up or their country is done.

  7. Let’s all pray that VP Mike Pence is the Christian and patriot we believe him to be, and it leads to a second term for President Trump. Then, we won’t be in so deep a hole when the quest to wrench our country away from Marxist traitors and saboteurs is begun.
