I missed that 20 more seditionist Republican Representatives —including Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, as well as Minority Whip Steve Scalise and Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN), the chair of the National Republican Congressional Committee— leaped from silently refusing to acknowledge Joe Biden won the election, to proudly enlisting in an attempted coup when they signed onto the Texas Brief before the Supreme Court Ruled. They brought the number of traitors in Congress to ⅔ of their conference:
The list of House Republicans formally challenging the presidential election results jumped on Friday, as 20 more lawmakers, including Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), endorsed the Texas lawsuit alleging widespread voter fraud.
A day earlier, the House amicus brief accompanying the Texas challenge had attracted the support of 106 Republican lawmakers, including Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.). The revised document, released Friday, brings the figure up to 126, representing roughly two-thirds of the Republican conference.
Even Sen. John Cornyn, not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer, noticed that the lawsuit didn’t make any sense:
“I frankly struggle to understand the legal theory of it. Why would a state, even such a great state as Texas, have a say-so on how other states administer their elections?”
I wish he’d show his work and explain to us who is “smart.”
Last night Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) wrote a letter to House leaders asking them to consider not seating the 126 members trying to overturn the election, based on a section of the 14th Amendment that specifically forbids members of Congress from, you know, committing treason:
And here’s where the stupid meets the road, as it were:
Allen West is the Chairman of the Texas branch of the Seditionist Republican Party? Oh, boy, this is gonna be stupendously stupid:
“The Supreme Court, in tossing the Texas lawsuit that was joined by seventeen states and 106 US congressman, has decreed that a state can take unconstitutional actions and violate its own election law. Resulting in damaging effects on other states that abide by the law, while the guilty state suffers no consequences. This decision establishes a precedent that says states can violate the US constitution and not be held accountable. This decision will have far-reaching ramifications for the future of our constitutional republic. Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution.”
The Texas GOP will always stand for the Constitution and for the rule of law even while others don’t.
…which is why the Grand Old Party of Sedition is calling for secession to defend the Constitution. Got it.
Here’s the bottom line, Scissorheads, unless Republicans face some kind of punishment for their bad behavior, this will become their new default setting for whenever they lose elections. This is who they are, this is how they work.
As we’ve seen during the 4th Reich, you give these seditionist traitors an inch, they take a Supreme Court seat. Don’t play nice with them, we need to be in Reconstruction II, and recall that it didn’t turn out so well when we cut it short the last time.
