donald j tRump’s Insurrection and Coup Attempt Explained
Factors that led to the Insurrection & Coup Attempt:
- Disrespect for Article III – Judicial Branch
Despite the GOP’s recent obsession over the role of the courts and their constant manuevering to place as many of their Judicial picks as possible, when it came to the 2020 Presidential Election process, djt, his lawyers and his Congressional sycophants all showed a complete disrespect for the Judicial’s role in the formal election process and this is one of the key factors that led to the djt Insurrection and Coup Attempt.
The rulings of the Judicial branch on election complaints and cases brought to them before and after the election are a key component of the official election process that must be respected and honored. These are the decisions that ensure no US election is “rigged”.
Rulings on cases before the election establish the rules of the road for election day. State and local election officials finalize all the minutea of their election day processes based on this decisions, as well as issue official election communications to the citizens. These include things like who’s allowed to vote, what verification is needed, how are absentee ballots utilized, when must ballots be received, what ballots will be, or not be, counted, etc. The American people, in their role as voters, depend upon these official communications when making their election decisions – e.g. if they’ll vote, where they’ll vote or how they’ll vote, who are the candidates, etc.?
Their is a hard limit to how many cases can play out – the election day minus any prep time needed by election officials – if you can’t make your case within the time limits prior to election day, you lose and you must respect the courts role and it’s decisions.
These pre-election cases played out as usual in 2020; the rules of the election road were established like always and the state and local governments, election officials and American people all conducted the election appropriately, legally and properly based upon any rulings made.
The same is true of post-election cases – the courts have a role, their decisions must be respected and their is a fixed time-limit. The time-limit is what’s called “Safe Harbor Day”, December 8th, when States certify their election results. That’s it! If you haven’t made your case and gotten a favorable ruling prior to Safe Harbor Day, you lose your case, the State certifies and the results of the election are final and known. This fact must be respected and is fundamental to our democratic process.
Because one side or the other doesn’t like some of the decisions, it is always wrong to then say the election is “rigged”. This is a flat out lie. The courts have ruled, we respect the role of co-equal judicial branch in our government, and we play respectfully by the rules and limits the Article III branch creates. Period, full stop.
That sitting US Senators and House Representatives were completely dismissive of these facts of our democracy was absoluting stunning and terrifying. They should have been defending our democratic process. They should have been explaining the process to their consitutents. They should have been acknowledging that, based on our “Unrigged” election and the rules of the road established through law and our Courts, that djt lost the election and Biden won. And that was that.
Instead, they fed wild and completely unsubstantiated conspiracy theories (good for a few billion $ lawsuits, Rudy) and outright lies. And, along with the ranting of the Big Loser and his D-league lawyers, this was a key factor in what led so many misinformed and misguided people to conduct the terrible Jan 6th Insurrection and Coup attempt. The election was officially over on Dec 8th (Safe Harbor Day). Everyone should have respected that fact, conceded their loss, congratulated the winner and began the orderly transition of the Executive Branch.
Only people seditious or traitorous to the Constitution of the United States do otherwise.
Other items I’ll be examining:
- Thousands of sworn GOP Election officials substantiated the non-rigged election and the official results, yet they are ignored, dismissed and in the case of Georgia GOP officials, a blatant attempt at coercion is made.
- Never any Court remedy that would have changed the election results
- Arizona – 33k late registrations – still Americans, right to vote, we WANT participation
- Violence was obvious – Trump had been inciting since BEFORE the election
- Par for the course – stoke racial divisions, party divisions – never a President to the whole nation – nothing but disrespect and insults to people with simply a different view of the role of government in certain situations…
Trump rightly should have:
- Resign – if he had any decency (like Nixon) – made it about him, not the nation.
- 25th Amendment
- 14th Amendment – Traitor, like Civil War traitors
- Impeachment, Trail, Conviction and Removal
