Democrat Hypocrites Pillory GOP for Following Dems’ Example

NEW YORK — If Democrat hypocrisy were an energy source, Americans could leave the lights on around the clock and never see a bill.

Democrats are roasting Republican senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Josh Hawley of Missouri for objecting to the Electoral College votes of Arizona and Pennsylvania due to serious questions about ballot-box irregularities. Democrats have reported these two lawmakers to the Senate Ethics Committee for their January 6 legislative intervention, which, unfortunately, coincided with the U.S. Capitol riot.

Some Democrats aim to expel congressional Republicans who challenged Electoral College votes at last month’s certification ceremony. Democrats likely convinced corporate Cancelistas to terminate PAC donations to as many as seven Republican senators and 138 GOP House members who opposed electors from one or more states among Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Harvard students, too many of whom resemble Mao Zedong’s Red Guards, demand that university officials yank diplomas from alumni Ted Cruz and Representative Elise Stefanik (R – New York).

There are two massive problems with the Left’s jihad against these Republicans:

First, these GOP lawmakers’ actions were perfectly legal. Article II, Section I, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution and the Electoral Count Act of 1887, 3 U.S. Code § 15, both governed their objections to states’ electors.

Second, Democrats repeatedly have resisted electors, starting four years ago. When Democrats do this, it epitomizes public service. When Republicans do this, it’s Kristallnacht. Indeed, President Joe “Unity” Biden compared Cruz and Hawley to Nazi Minister of Propaganda and Public Enlightenment Dr. Joseph Goebbels.

As the Congressional Record confirms, during the January 6, 2017 quadrennial joint-session/certification ceremony, seven House Democrats challenged electors in 10 states. Among these objectors: Lead impeachment manager, Maryland’s Jamie Raskin. “I have an objection because 10 of the 29 electoral votes cast by Florida were cast by electors not lawfully certified because they violated Florida’s prohibition against dual office holding,” Raskin complained. Democrats understandably balked at electors from Michigan and Wisconsin, which Trump won by 0.3 percent and 1.0 percent, respectively. Whatever these Democrats believed went wrong could have been decisive. However, Democrats also opposed electors from Alabama (where Trump outran Hillary by 28.3 percent), West Virginia (42.2 percent), and Wyoming (47.6 percent). This was recreational obstructionism.

No senator joined the fun. So, House Democrats’ objections went nowhere.

On January 4, 2013, and January 9, 2009, Republicans raised no objections whatsoever to Obama’s Electoral College votes.

But on January 6, 2005, Democrats were back at it. Representative Stephanie Tubbs Jones of Ohio objected to George W. Bush’s Electoral College votes from her state. Senator Barbara Boxer of California concurred. As on January 6, 2021, the House and Senate parted to debate this challenge separately.

Representative Nancy Pelosi (D – California) praised the 31 Democrat objectors for “speaking up for their aggrieved constituents” during “their only opportunity to have this debate while the country is listening.”

Nonetheless, House Democrats’ challenge fizzled, 31 yeas to 267 nays.

“The fight for electoral justice,” Senator Boxer argued, was “worth a couple of hours to shine some light on these issues.”

Boxer’s objection bellyflopped — her aye to 74 nays.

On January 6, 2001, 13 House Democrats, including five current incumbents, focused their fire on Florida’s electors for G.W. Bush.

“Mr. Vice President, I rise to object to the fraudulent 25 Florida electorial [sic] votes,” said Representative Maxine Waters (D – California). “The objection is in writing, and I do not care that it is not signed by a Member of the Senate.” Vice President Albert Gore dryly replied: “…the rules do care, and the signature of a Senator is required.” No senator stepped forward, and House Democrats’ challenge foundered.

Unlike today’s unfairly excoriated Republicans, Democrats faced zero repercussions when they exercised over and over again their constitutionally protected and statutorily permitted power to object to Electoral College votes. Democrats should abandon their congenital hypocrisy and recognize their Republican colleagues’ right to behave like Democrats.

Something most of us recognized a long time ago….. Democrats can break the law and ignore the rules with not one of them being held accountable for their own actions. BUT those same Democrats will scream bloody murder if ANY non-Democrat even dares to question a rule &/or law that a Democrat has broken/not followed.

Also, those same Democrats will blame any and all non-Democrats for doing what the Democrats themselves have done even if the non-Democrats have not done anything close to what Democrats have actually done.

Remember, Teddy Kennedy (D) killed a woman by leaving her to drown while his people (and his daddy) tried to cover for Teddy. And the only thing I think Teddy might have learned was to not drive with a woman who was not his wife, if only to keep from being in another car accident where his mistress could be killed. Otherwise, Teddy had no problem with having mistresses.

Bill Clinton had his sexcapades not only in the White House, but also in the Governor’s Mansion and many other places (I read that he even has/had a special room or apartment in his presidential library that he used for his sexual trysts) where he didn’t seem to care if they complained because Hillary would brand them as liars, trying to hurt the Clinton’s &/or just wanting their 15 minutes of fame and that no one should ever listen to or believe those women. Yet she says that women accusing Republicans should be listed to and their claims should be believed, no questions asked.

And those above examples are just 2 Democrats out of hundreds that could be used as further examples. 😉

You can’t make up this stuff about how hypocritical the Democrats are. I look at Joe Biden and think if this is his idea of unity I want no part of it.

Democrats should be ousted from congress. They are the swamp of unethical and criminal works. If it’s them that said or did something it’s okay but if it’s a conservative Republican they declare its unethical. But wait a minute, they have called us every name in the book, constantly harassed President Trump with their own unethical crap. They are totally guilty of attempting two coups, treason, bribery and almost anything else they can think of. Pelosi is a scheming idiot. A spoiled POS who was guilty of tearing up the script of President Trumps speech to the nation. Where was the outcry of that which is an offense. Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Waters and Nadler along with other instigators in the Democratic Party should all be impeached for their outrageous coup attempts and lying crap. I pray every Democrat that was behind these acts gets impeached and never allowed to be in government again. These power hungry idiots are abusing their responsibilities and have long before Trump became President. Arrest, jail and impeach. Our Republican congressmen need to get a backbone and stop this crap now!!! We are tired of these weak dimwits. Stop being nice as they are running all over you and the constitution and our citizens. Get busy and stop this total lack of strength. The reason the Democrats and yes even Republicans didn’t like Trump is that he did and said what he was thinking and wanted and expected people to do the same. Some Republicans like Graham talk a big talk and then change their mind and give in and they don’t accomplish nothing. Get to work!!!

Ask yourselves. Does the Democrat socialist party really work for you and your families? I used to vote for Democrats and Republicans, depending on the qualifications and the policies, a long time ago, but they changed to socialism now.

Cruz and Hawley have every right to challenge the electoral college. If you get to see Mike Lindell’s documentary on One America News, it is evident the Democrats are not a legitimate political party. They are a massive criminal organization that have partnered with fellow travelers in communism the C.C.P. to wage one of the most massive acts of cyber warfare in history, the theft of not just the Presidential Race of 2020, but the Congressional Race too. Their deep state minions have stonewalled investigations and intimidated witnesses to keep the proof from coming out. But Lindell’s documentary lays it all out. THere is no way to describe it but, the Communist Chinese with the Iranians and the Treasonous Democrats waged a cyber war against out computerized ballot system and therefore the nation and citizens and stole the 2020 election for the Democrats. In the final analysis the Central Government is compromised and corrupt to the core. The Constitutional Republic is over. Time to think Secession.

Isn’t it staggering how many things happened over the internet to steal the election, and how the IP addresses and locations of all the parties involved were obtained! Foreign countries totally destroyed America’s electoral process to swing the election to Biden.

Yes, they did turn their backs on decent, hard working Americans. Never underestimate the quest for greed and power in Washington. Once the elite class gets a dose of power and wealth, they become corrupted and they no longer care about doing the jobs they are sworn to do.

First it takes a constitutional amendment to remove the EC. They cannot legislate the change as just another bill. But does anyone have the guts to file a stop? Would SCOTUS hear the case if they tried? At this point it is anyone’s guess.

Democrats aren’t even credible anymore. They don’t function normally, and some rinos as well. Americans do not support their country being sold out to globalism and radicals who want to destroy this country. You can be sure that there is always a political game to deceive and manipulate people is constantly going on.

No such thing as an electoral college. The actual electorial vote is very real. No college, none whatsoever. They need to stop pushing the Patriots around with the re-verbilization or re- definition of the actual, in order to re-define, and perhaps change the outcome in the minds of true Patriots, true Americans. This is actual brain-washing. Literally. They are aware they are doing it. Sincerely, Patriot Dotty🌌
