Can Congress Really put Trump on Trial to Impeach him?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Jan 24, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

QUESTION: You said the impeachment may be illegal because Trump is no longer the president. Do you think it will still go on?

DK

ANSWER: We are in the twilight zone. An impeachment trial is limited to the removal from office. It is not a criminal proceeding. The Democrats are going after Trump on so many levels demanding his tax returns on a fishing expedition. The Chief Justice is supposed to preside over the impeachment of a president. Here is the real question. Will he attend? It would seem that Trump would be able to appeal to the Supreme Court on many grounds. I am not sure that Chief Justice Roberts would even attend since Trump is not the president and therefore it would seem to be unconstitutional on its face.

If they go ahead with such a trial yet Chief Justice Roberts does NOT attend, it is without any authority of law whatsoever. If I were Trump, I would appeal to the Supreme Court, and then what kind of a constitutional mess have the Democrats created when Trump would never be convicted in a court of law under the Brandenberg test of a high crime or misdemeanor?

This entire exercise seems to be a staged event for the sole purpose of convicting Trump and then banning him from ever running again. Even if he were found guilty in a criminal setting and was in prison, he could still run for president, even though that would be highly unusual. From a legal perspective, a criminal conviction is not a bar from political office.

Trump’s Impeachment Trial set for February 8th


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Jan 23, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

I always find it very interesting how our model picks up key targets in time in advance and then the fundamentals unfold to fit the computer forecasts. Schumer has just set the date for the trial of Trump to start February 8th. Our model had forecast that the week of the 4th would be more important than the week of the 18th and the inauguration. That proved to be correct. Now the turning point into the week before the trial and then the Panic Cycle the week of the 15th after the trial are very curious. I am fascinated by how the fundamentals unfold to fit the model all the time. This trial may do far more damage to the country than the Democrats realize.

The Democrats are deliberately trying to divide the country and they believe that they can utterly destroy Donald Trump and somehow that will put an end to the Republican Party and all resistance. I have repeatedly warned that this anti-establishment movement pre-existed Trump. He just happened to be at the right place at the right time. By putting Trump on trial, there were many Republicans who did not like Trump. However, the Democrats run the risk of now making Trump a martyr securing that he will have influence over the party going forward. Is this intentional or just stupidity?

This entire process is flawed constitutionally. The impeachment process is limited to removal from office and he is already not the President so their power states clearly he must be in office. There is some precedent that holds he could be tried if he resigned from the office. But he did not. Additional constitutional flaws exist whereby the vote in the House all members were not present and their vote was simply cast in a proxy. Then he is to be impeached for high crimes or misdemeanors which he did not commit under the First Amendment free speech test set forth in Brandenburg vOhio, 395 U.S. 444 (1969). Then it is a fundamental law that neither the president nor any member of Congress can be prosecuted for anything they say while in that office.

Furthermore, it is now clearly supported by the evidence that the siege of the Capitol was set in motion and pre-planned before Trump took the stage. They already breached the Capitol while Trump was still speaking. Under this test, then Pelosi and Schumer should be impeached for supporting the Black Lives Matter movement where there were skids of bricks pre-delivered for the purpose of looting businesses which is a crime. This is a politically staged event for the sole purpose of dividing the country but they are playing with fire. We have even AOC telling CNN that she does not “feel save” simply because there are Republican members of Congress because a Republican Congressman has a concealed weapon he was carrying. Nixon resigned and could have been put on trial in the Senate yet everyone agreed, it would not serve the interests of the nation.

The Democrats wanted to put on a huge show with the National Guard to create the image that Trump’s supporters were all wild people dressed as cavemen who turned out to be the NY son of a Democrat judge and his buddy waving a Confederate flag. But many National Guard turned their back to Biden pulling what the Democrats did to Trump – He’s Not My President! Facebook said this was false and they were ordered to turn their backs. That is debatable since the video does not show all troops turned their back. When the Japanese troops did that to the US occupation forces when the high command drove through the streets of Tokyo. All the citizens turned their backs on the convoys because there they were never allowed to look upon the Emperor. When the Democrats realized that Trump had 70% support among the military rank and file, they ordered the National Guard to vacate the Capital complex where they were sleeping and told them to sleep in a parking garage.

This is what people call a real “shit-show” and it is only further dividing the nation. The Democrats actually hope that putting Trump on trial will lead to civil unrest (reliable sources) and they will order to shoot to kill when they told police to stand-down with the Black Lives Movement/Antifa riots. They really are trying to destroy the Republican Party and take over the country once and for all. This is the insane determination of the left which always emerges for their solution can never accept opposition – they must force everyone to comply with their ideas.

This is clearly fulfilling the forecast of our computer that the end is coming for the United States. It is no longer the land of the free and home of the brave. You cannot have a free nation when you subjugate 50% and force indoctrination upon them of their left philosophy as was the case with the Communist Revolution. I wish we could just split the country and all those who voted for Biden move to one side. But the problem is their philosophy will not tolerate even a separate nation that does not comply with their demands.

This is why we have this international movement of BUILD BACK BETTER which was instigated by Klaus Schwab and his World Economic Forum. This has all been well-orchestrated globally from DAVOS.

Protests in Canada – Interesting Approach

Zuckerberg should Should be Arrested Right Now!


Armstrong Economics Blog/Opinion Re-Posted Jan 2, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

We are now dealing with Facebook is deliberately interfering in elections. They shut down the page for Republicans raising money in Georgia 2 days before the election claiming they violated their community guidelines. I am sorry, but Zuckerberg should be dragged out in chains. He is now violating everyone’s civil rights in the nation. They wanted to start a war by claiming Russia interfered in the US elections and Congress demanded sanctions.  Facebook is acting far worse than the Russians were ever accused of.

We need a special prosecutor to be appointed right NOW to criminally charge those in BigTech deliberately trying to manipulate the election. These dropouts obviously view that the US Constitution violates its community guidelines. Enough is enough! They should now be locked up.

What About Fake News?


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Dec 15, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

The question dealing with the press is not something new. Matthew Lyon was the first person to be put on trial for violating the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798, after publishing criticism of President John Adams. The Sedition Act of 1798 criminalized the “writing, printing, uttering or publishing [of] any false, scandalous and malicious writing or writings about the government of the United States.” Indeed, Trump could have and should have charged people from the media who clearly violated that Act. Lyon was sentenced to four months in jail. While imprisoned, he was elected to represent Vermont in Congress.

It was actually Abraham Lincoln who seized the telegraph lines and issued an order prohibiting the printing of war news about military movements without approval. He was censoring the news back then for anyone who challenged his administration. Lincoln had people arrested for wearing Confederate buttons and for singing Confederate songs in the North. He went as far as to shut down the Chicago Times for criticizing the Lincoln administration. The editors were arrested, the newspapers were shut down, and the journalists were banned from the fields of battle. A military governor with the approval of the secretary of war, Edwin M. Stanton, destroyed the office of the Sunday Chronicle, a Washington, D.C., newspaper. Lincoln even had a Democrat member of Congress arrested for making an anti-war speech in his home state.

In April 1863, General Ambrose Burnside, who was the commander of the Department of the Ohio, issued General Order No. 38. Burnside placed his headquarters in Cincinnati to intimidate Confederate sympathizers. He issued General Order No. 38.

General Order No. 38 stated:

The habit of declaring sympathy for the enemy will not be allowed in this department. Persons committing such offenses will be at once arrested with a view of being tried. . .or sent beyond our lines into the lines of their friends. It must be understood that treason, expressed or implied, will not be tolerated in this department.

Burnside also declared that, in certain cases, violations of General Order No. 38 could result in death. Most could not believe the audacity of this order which violated free speech. Clement Laird Vallandigham (1820–1871) was so opposed to the order that he allegedly said that he “despised it, spit upon it, trampled it under his feet.” He also allegedly encouraged open resistance to Burnside. Vallandigham was said to have criticized President Lincoln for not seeking a peaceable and immediate end to the Civil War and for allowing General Burnside to ignore the constitutional rights of citizen’s. It was reported that Vallandigham had violated General Order No. 38. The general ordered his immediate arrest. On May 5, 1863, a company of soldiers arrested Vallandigham at his home in Dayton and brought him to Cincinnati to stand trial.

Burnside charged Vallandigham with the following crimes:

Publicly expressing, in violation of General Orders No. 38, from Head-quarters Department of Ohio, sympathy for those in arms against the Government of the United States, and declaring disloyal sentiments and opinions, with the object and purpose of weakening the power of the Government in its efforts to suppress an unlawful rebellion.

Vallandigham was tried by a military tribunal and was found guilty despite his argument that they lacked jurisdiction over a civilian. The tribunal sentenced him to remain in a United States prison for the remainder of the war. Fear that this would result in a rebellion after he appealed to a federal circuit court. But the court, corrupt as it was being pro-government, denied the appeal. Judge Leavitt held that General Burnside had military authority which was necessary during a time of war. President Lincoln feared that a rebellion would erupt and commuted Vallandigham’s sentence to exile in the Confederacy. On May 25, Burnside sent Vallandigham into Confederate lines.

Then in 1917, Rose Pastor Stokes, who was an anti-war activist, writer, and a founding member of the American Communist Party, was prosecuted under the Espionage Act of 1917 for writing to a newspaper: “I am for the people and the government is for the profiteers.” The Act criminalized attempting to cause insubordination to the war effort, willfully attempting to cause insurrection, and obstructing the recruiting or enlistment of potential volunteers.  After being sentenced to 10 years in Missouri State prison, she successfully appealed to the US Court in St Paul. The government ultimately dismissed the case against her in 1920.

Therefore, many people have written in asking if CNN, New York Times and the Washington Post could ever be shut down or their editors prosecuted for supporting Klau Schwab and his take over of the world to push it into Marxism. There is plenty of precedent for that. Trump was never advised properly and the Department of Justice would never investigate.

CTH 2.0 Updates, New Comment Platform Initiated


Posted originally on The Conservative Tree House on December 8, 2020 by Sundance

As you can see CTH 2.0 is launching a new comment platform to improve the features and user engagement we have all come to appreciate.  Here is some background information about this comment process that will likely answer questions.  Please book-mark this post and share it for those who do not read the site updates and just go into the comments.

Because we are free from the constraints of WP/Automattic we are able to explore features that many Treepers have asked for.  We have selected comment software from WPDiscuz (not affiliated with Disqus in any form) specifically because we can control the platforms internal content according to our privacy demands.

No outside system is gathering any user data or content on the commenting platform, everything within CTH 2.0 is being built on a very stable and private proprietary foundation.

The ability to add videos, graphics, pictures, tweets, scribd embeds and other functions is now present in the comment section.  This is called “Oembeds”, and it is live right now. However, we will not be activating a feature that allows you to upload images or videos directly from your computer.  If the image/video has a url, it should be visible.

There are other features we will likely add to the comments section, but we must go painstakingly slow, and here’s why….

At each step in the process of adding features we have to pause and measure the impact on server capacity to support the addition.  Each feature creates a small amount of data that communicates with the servers in real time (ie. the bandwidth).  Think of it like a pipe, and each feature adds data into the pipeline… the pipe has a capacity… we add, then evaluate, ensure pipe capability/stability, then move on.  The issue is scale.

CTH 2.0 is a massive community of simultaneous users.  Each user engagement requires a live-time upload of data from server to you.  The page load time is directly related to the bandwidth capacity… if there are a lot of simultaneous users the level of data transfer can overwhelm the pipe…. it can clog and freeze.

Additionally, each new feature creates a draw from the server capacity at the end of the pipeline.  For lack of a better explanation this is the CDN rate.  CDN = Content Delivery Network.  CTH 2.0 is a massive load of data that updates for each user as they land on the homepage and visit the articles.  Again, it is a matter of scale.  As we said before CTH is a community, essentially a social media platform, working inside a website.

Our community engagement, the size of our commenting community, exceeds almost all other types of websites except for social media sites.  Those sites are specifically designed for community engagement… CTH 2.0 is leading the charge back to the era before Big Tech took control of content delivered to you.

The content in the community (the comment section) is derived from your choices, your freedom.  It is your discussion and we are stewards protecting your conversation.

With 5,000 simultaneous users on-site at any given moment, the bandwidth demand is large.  With 100,000+ unique daily users and 500,000 page views per day, the data load (CDN rate) on the servers is large.   We are chewing up about 5 terabytes of server space per day even with two cache services hosting the older content.  We always knew our data load was heavy, we just didn’t know how heavy.  This is why almost all other suggested solutions for our CTH 2.0 launch would not work.  It is a scale issue.

All of these are essentially good problems.  The rebel alliance is strong and the assembly is large.  We just need to consider that each small 4gb feature addition for a single user has a magnitude of impact based on the scale of our assembly.

Think about walking into a bar with 100,000 friends and everyone orders one drink at the same time.  The bartenders (servers) are going to get overwhelmed pretty quick, and the beer kegs will run dry fast.  Then think about everyone ordering two drinks. That’s the type of scale issue we are navigating while keeping the bar open.

With all that in mind we initiated the new comment system with Oembed functions activated.  Now we watch a little while and make sure the pipes (bandwidth) and servers (CDN rate) can handle the data load.

Then we add the “likes feature”, and we watch again… we keep repeating this process with every feature until we have safely checked-off our priority list.  There are a lot of features we want to provide while at the same time the server host is trying to figure out what the level of our site demand actually is.  Again, good problems, but this is unknown territory.

So the proprietary comment platform we have selected is stable, private and secure.  It also allows us to add features that you have requested.  We just need to measure the impact of each addition as we move along.

Also, CTH is modeled on an eleven year-old platform theme. It is reliable, but it is also clunky, heavy and not as streamline as modern tech can provide. As described, CTH is a heavy data-tank on a highway with the ability to collapse the road. We need to modernize and get faster while retaining the depth and purposeful mission priority.

We need to change our theme platform to be responsive to the type of device you are using making it easier to navigate the site from phones and iPad type devices. The engineers are working on a proposal, and a test site is experimenting. The good news is our site content is not complex and the modernization should not be too difficult. In essence, CTH presents itself differently, more user friendly, depending on the type of device you are using.

Additionally, one of our priorities right now is establishing an email notification system where you can subscribe to automatic notifications of new posts etc.  As with almost all systems of this type (there are many) it involves the use of a third party email transmission process. Y’all are aware that privacy is a CTH priority, so we are being very careful about vetting the service and setting up this notification system to protect CTH users.

CTH does not compile user information, does not engage in the manufacture of processes that assemble lists of users or any user data. We are working to ensure we do not end up creating an external list of subscribers that would be vulnerable to exploitation.  Your privacy in all matters related to CTH engagement is my priority.  This new commenting platform can also deliver that type of email notification service, we are evaluating.

Thanks again for bearing with us as we work through some technical issues, search for optimal solutions, and fiercely retain the original values and mission priority of the Treehouse.  The Truth Has No Agenda

Myself and the incredibly hardworking site admins consider ourselves stewards to this community. YOU are what matters.  Your ability to analyze, discuss, crowdsource and provide your comments on the subject matter is what makes CTH home. We will NEVER remove a commenting function from our website.

In fact, it is the crowd-sourcing work we have done as a community that has been the most thrilling and brilliant part of our work together. I will never lose that focus.  The key to Treehouse 2.0 is recognizing we have built something within a big tech ecosphere that wants to see us removed.  By being proactive we have avoided some serious challenges and that makes us better stewards for our conversation.

Remember, YOU are the important part.

Without you CTH doesn’t really have a purpose.  Individually we could stand outside shouting at trees with no impact; but together, sitting on the figurative cyber-porch, the conversation is rich with unique skill-sets, subject matter experts and life-long experiences that make discussion so much more valuable. Myself and the CTH admin team cherish the value you represent.

Please share your feedback and suggestions on the comment platform.  Does it work for you?  What do you like or not like about it.  We will modify, when possible, based on feedback.

Love to all,

Site Updates, CTH 2.0 Priorities, and User Experience Feedback Requests


Posted originally on The Conservative tree house on December 4, 2020 by Sundance

As we work through bugs associated with CTH 2.0 launch, consider this a thread to provide information, report user issues, ideas and concerns. Please read the information provided below as it might answer many questions in advance.

Again, my sincere apologies for any site disruption and/or user issues you may have encountered or might be continuing to encounter as we level the ship.

The majority of major site issues have been reconciled over the past 36 hrs.  CTH 2.0 is flying even and stable.

The DNS issues are resolved, and all inbound links to TheConservativeTreehouse.Com should now be landing on the correct and most recent homepage.   There was an issue with dual cache conflict between our new server host and a mid-way cache service intended to assist with the overall site demand.  That was causing older pages to propagate upon user entry. That problem has been resolved.

Given the short time-window we were operating with; and considering the objective of Big Tech Automattic to disrupt an ongoing conversation adverse to their interests; we succeeded in keeping the CTH community voice in the fight.  Trust me, this was no small effort to achieve and is cause for much appreciation and celebration in the big picture.

The rebel alliance is alive, well and we have made new ‘rag tag’ misfit friends.  Your support was/is critical in achieving that objective.  We are humbled and thankful.

Now that we have an essentially fully-functioning architecture in place, we are able to start a slow and methodical process to enhance the features most important to our community.

Each feature must be installed, applied and evaluated for downstream issues. It is a painstaking process and takes a little time to ensure we don’t attach a feature that creates an imbalance or impact upon the essential functions of the site.

CTH is modeled on an eleven year-old platform theme.  It is reliable, but it is also clunky, heavy and not as streamline as modern tech can provide.  As described, CTH is a heavy data-tank on a highway with the ability to collapse the road.  We need to modernize and get faster while retaining the depth and purposeful mission priority.

To the details:

♦ 50% of site traffic comes from desktop/laptop computer use, and 50% comes from mobile devices (phones, pads etc).  This is one of the issues with our older theme still in place, and a team is working on it right now.   When CTH first launched mobile platforms were in their infancy, in the modern era mobile devices are now the norm.

We need to change our theme platform to be responsive to the type of device you are using making it easier to navigate the site from phones and iPad type devices.  The engineers are working on a proposal, and a test site is experimenting.   The good news is our site content is not complex and the modernization should not be too difficult.  In essence, CTH presents itself differently, more user friendly, depending on the type of device you are using.

♦ One of our priorities right now is establishing an email notification system where you can subscribe to automatic notifications of new posts etc.  As with almost all systems of this type (there are many) it involves the use of a third party email transmission process. Y’all are aware that privacy is a CTH priority, so we are being very careful about vetting the service and setting up this notification system to protect CTH users.

CTH does not compile user information, does not engage in the manufacture of processes that assemble lists of users or any user data. We are working to ensure we do not end up creating an external list of subscribers that would be vulnerable to exploitation.  Your privacy in all matters related to CTH engagement is my priority.

♦ Next, we are working on a return of the “like comments” feature in some manner or form. The issue with a like feature is a direct all-time link between the user engagement and the host server.  In essence, to have a “like feature” there is a continual feed every millisecond attached to the server.  That is ok, but as with all things in tech world can create a draw -own of site performance given the scale of our assembly.

Don’t worry about “likes” being off-the-table, they are not.  This function is actually important to me, and we will restore them because that engagement is actually a precursor to something else, something unique, that I want to see on the site.  A sidebar on the page drawing attention to the top ten highest-rated comments in a real time feed.  You click on the user name, or perhaps the avatar, and it takes you to the comment.

♦ Another new feature I want to execute is a “most liked articles” widget.  Similar to most liked comments, this would be a real-time propagated graphic showing the articles that users are most following or reading on other sites.   Instead of me aggregating the information and/or directing attention to interesting external articles, this awesome community of smart commentators can do that themselves.

In essence, you share links to important external articles or content in the comments, and the top five articles (as clicked/read by commentators) automatically shows up in this sidebar feature: “Hot Topics and Articles.”   [This is a little challenging, but the technology exists to accomplish it.]

♦ The team is also working on restoring a system that will allow embed pictures, tweets and videos to populate in the comments section.  This is a process/system called “OEmbed Comments”.  We needed to reconcile the scale of server use/demand by the commenting system before we could contemplate this feature.

Now that we have a dual library system in place for the 7.5 million comments, we can start the process of evaluating server capacity for OEmbed functions.  It is not a matter of “if” this will happen, it is simply a matter of when those functions return.

When you write a comment it creates a metadata file. Each comment is a unique url.  Your unique id is part of that metadata, your gravatar or avatar is part of that metadata, the content of your comment (what you write) is part of that metadata and any article links, citations, pictures, gifs, or tweets -each carrying a unique url- is part of that metadata.

The average number of lines of unique metadata in one comment is six to ten lines of code, regardless of the length of your comment.  Your comment creates a mini data-file with its own unique id (the url).  The library of pre-existing comments was 7.2 million.  Multiply that by the lines of metadata and you get well over 40 million lines of code in the pre-existing comment file alone. (more)

Again, it is important to remember much of this server capacity exploration is in uncharted territory on a non-social-media platform.  Fortunately, we have the ability to scale-up; our server hosts are just trying to figure out the actual scale we need.

Interview in Canada Censored by YouTube


Armstrong Economics Blog/Censorship Posted Dec 4, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

I did an interview in Canada with Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson and it was censored by YouTube because the information violated their political agenda. Subtracting the total deaths in nursing homes shows that the actual number of deaths in Canada from COVID was only 165. They really will not tolerate any interview against their pandemic agenda.

CTH 2.0 Site Maintenance Complete – Mission Accomplished…


Posted originally on The Conservative Tree house on December 1, 2020 by Sundance

Data Engineers Have Optimal Solution To Restore Comment Function:

Success !!

It appears we have a workable solution achieved.  Excellent….

….Welcome Back Gang… let’s test drive this thing.

Run it hard, use this thread to try out the stuff you are familiar doing. Let’s see what we need to tweek modify or adjust to get back to peak operational condition.  Share your issues and ideas in comments.

We are no longer on Automattic/WordPress servers and despite the extremely tight forced eviction timeline we have achieved a safe rebuild ten hours ahead of deadline.  Quite an accomplishment considering the scale of the task at hand, and a holiday in the middle of it.

There are a few random reports of regional DNS issues and here’s a few tips we are discovering from users:

♦ Make sure you are using the latest version of your browser software.   Reports of Mac not reaching through to new site, but when OS “Big Sur” is added things improve.

♦ Make sure your cookies and cache are not returning you to old site activity.  I apologize for this issue because clearing your browsing history is always a mess and can often require you to re-enter all saved passwords, but that’s one of the unavoidable issues with an entirely new set of servers and new DNS targeting.

♦ All regional Internet Service Providers (ISP’s), responses for queries and bookmarks launched by users, should be aimed toward our new servers now.  Some of them took a long time to update, and there is a familiar pattern to it (discussion for another day).

♦ Remember, while we are using WordPress open source code/software, we are not operating inside the WordPress/Automattic platform.  Some proprietary functions of WP/Automattic will not be available.  I think the notification bell is one of those functions.

♦ There will be a new email-notification program initiated later today that will allow you to sign up for email notifications of new articles and updates. [In the works] In the interim Twitter users can use the notification function and all articles will cross-post to Twitter.

There are going to be features and site enhancements to come along later.  Right now the priority was to keep everything as identical and familiar as possible.  We will likely be doing some cool site changes now that we have full proprietary control and ownership of the site.

Thanks again for bearing with us as we work through some technical issues, search for optimal solutions, and fiercely retain the original values and mission priority of the Treehouse.  The Truth Has No Agenda

Please be patient if you get hung up in a moderation cue. It may take time to release some comments if they are hung up in moderation. The site admins do a great job with comment moderation and release so it shouldn’t be too much of an issue; and quite frankly, there are likely to be benefits from not having WordPress/Automattic software filtering through the comments as they post. Spam removal will be a priority.

Thank you for your support and fellowship. We will always work diligently to deserve it.

As word spreads… the voices of the rebel alliance are arriving now.  The best open-source researchers in the world are firing up their laptops and preparing for the most critical moments in the battle to save our nation.   The CTH printing presses are rebuilt, oiled,  and the deep rumble of the machinery is slowly building to a deafening roar.

We are extraordinarily thankful… and itching to get FREE VOICES back into this fight.

Love to all,

Mainstream Media Remains in Denial About Voter Fraud


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Dec 1, 2020 by Martin Armstrong

Democrats are like zebra, they change their stripes according to self-interest whereas the Republicans can become white elephants when required. In this case, the mainstream media and governors swear the vote was real. However, Biden received more votes in only the swing states, beating Obama and Hillary, which is really astonishing. But the truth has been that people have been warning for a very long time that the American voting machines have been vulnerable and nobody has addressed the issue. In fact, the American voting system VIOLATES the Equal Protection Clause because there is absolutely no standard nationally for a federal election. In some states, anyone charged with any crime loses their right to vote and the governor has to restore it while in other states they can vote. This is no different than saying people of color are not allowed to vote in some states or anyone who belongs to a particular religion. Then not all states allocate electoral votes on a winner takes all method. Two states allocate electors according to the popular vote.

Can the election be a do-over? No, there is no time. The only solution is that the election should be ruled null and void by the Supreme Court and it should be thrown into the House of Representatives. The allegations of fraud are massive. I seriously doubt that 25% of the people voted for Biden because they really thought he was competent. The rest voted for Biden because they hated Trump. The computer has been correct far beyond what even I suspected was possible. Yes, it forecast that this would end in the most violent election since the ’60s. We have Antifa sill protesting and they want to overthrow the United States, capitalism, and colonialism. Besides tearing down whatever they can get their hands on, what is their solution? If the land was stolen from the Indians, then the right thing to do is not tear down statues of Columbus, but get on the next plane and go back to their original country. You can’t have it both ways.
