Where a great deal of smoke appears and is visible to the human senses, there is a great probability of fire; and unchecked fire is, of course, an imminent danger to any civilized people. This ancient aphorism is applicable to any dangerous condition that warrants scrutiny and investigation. That’s why the National Park Service rangers react so quickly to any suspicious smoke they observe from their outpost towers in the national forests.
The great Benjamin Franklin was, in 1787, emerging from the Constitutional Convention hall in Philadelphia when he was asked by a concerned lady pedestrian, “What are you making for us in there, Mr. Franklin?” Franklin reportedly had replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.” Thomas Jefferson had also said, in 1789, in regard to the duty of the electorate to keep the republic’s federal government honest and upright, “Whenever the people are well informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.”
Hence, the watchdogs of Constitutional government, per the mandates of the U.S. Constitution, are the people of the United States, or the States, and their watchtowers, voting booths, are erected within the States to ensure that the smoke of criminal corruption and conspiracy is not observed noticeably curling-up as it escapes from shadowy back-rooms and basements where corrupt and complicit men and women plan their seditious crimes against the republic.
Why should the American electorate always be properly informed about what’s truthfully happening in DC, if not for the purpose of voting responsibly? And why is the vote the most cherished possession of an American citizen and worthy of being protected if not because the integrity and honesty of the senators, representatives, federal justices, and the President, comprising the collective federal government (the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches) will determine the purity and stability of the republic’s government?
According to Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution, the individual State legislatures have the responsibility of determining how State and federal elections will be conducted in each State. That section of the Constitution does not give State supreme courts the power to overrule the will of the State legislatures and State Constitutions regarding voting rules and regulations. This issue rises to the status of federal matter, to ensure State compliance with the U.S. Constitution.
As I have formerly asserted in other essays and articles, the federal government has illegally changed the working U.S. Constitution, without the amendment process, through pragmatic expedience when it was obvious that their illegal change would never be allowed through constitutional amendment. Most citizens read the text of the Constitution and believe it is followed procedurally as written. But, in many cases, it is not.
One of the many blatant example of these pragmatic changes was the 1925 Federal Judiciary Act that altered the Article 3, Section 2 requirement of the SCOTUS to hear ALL cases rising through the federal appellate courts to U.S. Supreme Court level to a pick-and-choose system called “writ of certiorari.” This Federal Judiciary Act was quietly pushed through Congress in 1925 and hardly advertised and debated before it was signed into law, because the feds, at that time in history, knew that such an unconstitutional change in SCOTUS judicial procedure would never be achieved through constitutional amendment.
In other words, criminal conspiracy, and this undebated congressional fiat could have only been called a conspiracy, is easily achievable when the conspirators are free to act with relative impunity. The honored framers believed optimistically that such conspiracy would never occur to impede constitutional government in the mandate of “ensuring the blessings of liberty to the posterity of the people of the United States.”
They didn’t foresee the 20th Century playing-out as egregiously as it did in the progressive hands of federal officers, such as Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt, who considered the U.S. Constitution as merely another piece of paper that could disregarded and rewritten. Wilson and Roosevelt were Democrat, but, later, a neo-conservative Republican, George W. Bush, said the same atrocious thing about the glorious predicate of American federalism, liberty, and freedom.
Of all the sacred things to be preserved in perpetuity by the U.S. Constitution, the vote is probably to most precious, upon which hinges the preservation of constitutional government, of the people, by the people, and for the people, as averred by Abraham Lincoln in 1863. As such, the present 2020 Presidential Election crisis seems to jump-out into the public purview as the most ominous threat to the republic to present itself since 1789, upon which hinges the future of U.S. constitutional government and the free-market economy.
In his book, “Steal This Vote,” author Andrew Gumbel quoted former President Jimmy Carter’s response to a question he received from a radio interviewer a few days before the November 2004 election. The question was, “Instead of flying to Zambia or Venezuela or East Timor with your widely respected election monitoring team, what if your team was invited to turn its attention to the United States?” Carter’s answer had been terse and blunt. “Not only would the voting system be regarded as a failure,” he replied, “but the shortcomings are so egregious the Carter Center would never agree to monitor an election there in the first place. We wouldn’t think of it. The American political system wouldn’t measure up to any sort of international standards, for several reasons.”
What the former President was saying there, without saying it, was that the duplicitous efforts of men and women in shadowy basement rooms to steal votes and rig the ballot processes (he called shortcomings) in the various States would make it totally impossible to ensure an honest national election. He wasn’t referring to accidental innocent shortcomings or mistakes. In essence, the continuous shortcomings mentioned by Carter are regularly and deliberately produced in this country before and during election years by conspiring men and women for the benefit of one, or more, political parties. They are not accidental in nature, by widely systemic. Implied by Carter was the obvious criminal smoke produced by the conspiring politicians and their cronies in the process of their conspiracies; for a conspiracy only involves two or more people systematically planning to commit a crime.
As far as sinister conspiratorial smoke is concerned, the four battleground States that are currently being claimed by Joe Biden have thick plumes swirling above their highly suspicious voting places, all in Democrat controlled cities. Donald Trump succeeded in winning more Republican popular votes than he did in the 2016 election, and the Republican representatives and senators, for whom the President’s coattails have caused their election and reelection resurgence in the Senate and the House of Representatives, have been overwhelmingly chosen by the people.
The 2020 vote count in the battleground States, North Carolina, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Arizona has been much closer than in the 2016 election. The smoke of the conspiratorial suspicion of vote tampering in the counting process, and in the processing of totally unreliable mail-in votes, in the States of Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Nevada create a dilemma that may only be solved through federal litigation to seek judicial order to re-consider or cast-out the dubious mail-in ballots received after Tuesday, November 3rd. For the smoke is so thick over these three States that a rush to put-out raging criminal fires would only seem a proper mandate.
Every legal vote must be counted, and the illegal votes must be tossed-out and discarded. The premature claim by Biden to have won the 2016 Election is just another Democrat ploy for skewing public perception, since the Democrat mainstream media polls were ludicrously wrong, more wrong than the infamous Truman-Dewey poll post-WWII projection of a Dewey landslide.
There was no blue wave landslide. The exact opposite occurred and all the sinister lying Biden and his running-mate Harris can now do is to illegally mess with the vote count to steal the 2020 Election from Donald Trump, since the Dems couldn’t get DJT out of DC in 2016, and later with the criminally conspiratorial Russian collusion fiasco and the Dems failed attempt at impeachment. I pray that the immortal words of John Adams, “that we are a nation of laws, and not of men,” will prove true as Donald Trump seeks to ensure that the 2020 Election was not stolen by the Democrats.
