Biden Beneficiary of January 6th ‘Insurrection’
There is little doubt that when the dust settles and the January 6th attack on the Capitol is factually and impartially reviewed, it will fully validate that the ensuing chaos and turbulence at the Capitol that day inexorably benefitted the erroneous election of former Obama vice president and current pretender Joe Biden.
With the usual news and social media dominance of what my Budapest-born grandmother warned as ‘seeing things as they are, rather than as we would like them to be,’ basic facts about the January 6th event have become subject to misinformation, distortion and otherwise discombobulated in the media circus and the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol alleging a citizen-initiated ‘insurrection;’ fundamental to what has become a widespread criminal conspiracy entrapping over eight hundred Americans (many in violation of habeas corpus) without constitutional due process while Members of Congress were denied entry to inspect the Federal Department of Corrections to visit American political prisoners being held there.
As the country continues to deteriorate with increased fragmentation, as the simultaneous degradation of the elite unipolar globalist world desperately clings to its eroding power; two separate, different worlds with a conflicting set of values and view of reality. It was as if an elaborate trap had been set for Trump supporters who had come to Stop the Steal Rally on the Ellipse in protest of election irregularities along with presentation of Congressional evidence during the House of Representatives certification of the 2020 election; those protesters were cleverly enticed to leave Trump who was still speaking at the rally and march the one mile to the Nation’s Capitol; unbeknownst that strategically placed individuals were animating violence and cheering on a breach of the Capitol’s security continues to raise questions that remain unanswered. Whatever political entity or government agency sought to prevent that evidence from being presented in a wholistic, comprehensive manner needed to stage an alleged ‘riotous insurrection’ to accomplish the task.
Absent from the entire spectacle has been the significance of Amendment XII which, since its amendment in 1803, provides a back-up plan allowing the House of Representatives to step in if no one candidate achieves the 270 electoral vote threshold which was a distinct possibility in 2020. The official 2020 election results which remain in dispute gave Joe Biden 306 electoral votes with 51.3% of the vote at 80 million votes; Trump received 232 electoral votes with 46.9% of the vote at 74 million votes. (The number of each state’s electoral votes is determined by the total number of Members of Congress in each state; therefore the larger states have more Members and more electoral votes than smaller states with California’s 55 members of Congress creating 55 electoral votes.)
On January 6th, the House of Representatives was convened in a Joint Session of Congress to begin the certification process, on a state by state basis, to precisely identify and count all the votes As the count began, six states were cited for ‘objections;’ they were Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada and Wisconsin and a vote had just been taken regarding Arizona. It was at about this point when the ‘insurrection’ totally disrupted House proceedings as House Members scurried to vacate the Chambers; further consideration was not to be resumed until later that evening when various Republican Senators began to back off their earlier pledge to support consideration of the evidence. As reported by Politico and The Wall Street Journal. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), never an admirer of President Trump, privately called on fellow Republican senators to not object to the 2020 election results.
As a direct result of the chaos and turbulence, all of which was immediately blamed on Trump supporters, the Twelfth Amendment did not complete its constitutional role in a thoughtful, reasoned environment conducive to a thorough grasp of the factual data. As Trump Congressional supporters were undermined from presenting their evidence of electoral anomalies such as when a majority of Pennsylvania State Senators requested that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy delay certification of Pennsylvania’s electoral votes pending resolution of an absentee ballot rule dispute, there is no certainty to know the outcome of a legitimate Amendment XII process.
Two hours after the incident began, Trump responded in a video statement:
“I know your pain, I know you’re hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side. But you have to go home now, we have to have peace, we have to have law and order, we have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt. It’s a very tough period of time. There’s never been a time like this where such a thing happened where they could take it away from all of us. From me, from you, from our country. This was a fraudulent election, but we can’t play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace. So, go home. We love you, you’re very special. You’ve seen what happens, you see the way others are treated that are so bad and so evil. I know how you feel. But go home, and go home in peace.””
Nevertheless, as the fraudulent Biden election became the beneficiary of the ‘Capitol riot’ on January 6th, the partisan militants responsible for the 2020 debacle may yet prove to be recipients of a well-deserved reversal of their own creation with the November mid-election.
