(Liberty Bell) – If there’s one thing the folks in the Democratic Party are good at, it’s violating the Constitution. Then again, they don’t really seem to care about the founding document of our country, viewing it as a nuisance since it gets in the way of the massive power grabs they so desperately want in order to enact their sickening vision of the United States.
This is a reality we’ve all known about for a long time, but it became even more brazen during the Obama era, where the former president was busted 72 times violating the Constitution. Obama and many other leftists believe the Constitution is a “living document,” meaning that its laws and definitions need to change with the times.
In reality, what the Constitution meant to our founders is exactly what it means today. The original intended meaning of a piece of writing doesn’t change. Sure, words can change meanings over time, but that’s not the same thing. If we really want to understand an old piece of writing, it has to be studied in its original context. What the words meant back then.
This is called being an “originalist.”
An originalist is a leftists worst enemy.
According to WND, Rep. Jim Jordan from Ohio, took the Democrats to the woodshed, saying in a speech given on the House floor that Democrats were well aware that the Constitution had been violated in the 2020 presidential election, but they simply do not care.
Given how much the radical left hates Donald Trump, this is a totally believable statement. As said above, the left has never respected our Constitution, but even less so due to the president.
“Democrats don’t care. They don’t want to look into it. They’d rather just belittle 60 million of our fellow citizens, call them names, say it’s a conspiracy, make fun of the very people we’re all supposed to represent,” Jordan said.
The Ohio congressman went on to promise that the challenges that occurred in Congress on Wednesday would present a “chance to hear the truth.”
“During the campaign, Vice President Biden would get 55 people at an event. President Trump got 55,000 at just one rally,” he went on to say. “President Trump increased his vote with African-Americans, increased his vote with Hispanic Americans, won 19 of 20 bellwether counties, won Ohio by eight, Iowa by eight, Florida by three, got 11 million more votes than he got in 2016. And House Republicans won 27 of 27 tossup races. But somehow, somehow, Joe Biden, the guy who barely left his house, won the election?”
“Maybe. Maybe. But 80 million Americans, 80 million Americans, both Republicans and Democrats, have their doubts and 60 million Americans think the election was stolen. 60 million people, over one-third of the electorate. But no one in this town seems to care. Democrats don’t care. Media doesn’t care,” Jordan added. “Eighty million of our fellow citizens have their doubts about the election two months ago. And the media and the Democrats say ‘nothing to see here.’ Of course, this town has been out to get the president since July 31st, 2016, before he was elected the first time. Four years and forty million dollars on the Russia hoax, but we can’t look into an election?”
Jordan went on to state that Republicans are on a mission to uncover the truth. And that’s spot on too. All we want is the truth. All we want is to defend the integrity of our election system. If Biden won by a fair and free election, then so be it. That means we have a lot of work to do with individuals in the culture. But if it was stolen, then voices were silenced. That is unacceptable.
“Not one investigation, not one hearing in the House of Representatives. We asked for it. We asked Chairwoman Maloney. Mr. Coleman, I asked for it. We asked Chairman Nadler. Nope, not going to do it. We welcomed an inspector general investigation for goodness sake. Over 200 affidavits and declarations of wrongdoing, but no investigation in the Congress. No subpoenas, no depositions, no chance for question, or cross-examination of witnesses. Why? Why won’t they look into it? Why no hearings? Why no investigation? I think it’s because deep down, deep down, they know there were big problems with this past election. They know the Constitution was violated. Article 1, Section 4: ‘Time, place, and manner for holding elections shall be determined in each state by the legislature thereof.’ Article 2, Section 1: ‘Each state shall appoint in such manner as the legislature may direct,'” Jordan said.
The Ohio representative then went on to list the election irregularities that occurred in various key battleground states.
“Pennsylvania law says mail-in ballots by eight o’clock on Election Day. Election Day ends at eight o’clock. Mail-in ballots have to be in by eight o’clock on election day. Democrat State Supreme Court said, nope. We’re going to extend the election day to Friday, to five o’clock Friday. Pennsylvania State Law says mail-in ballots require signature verification. The Democrat Secretary of State said nope. For 2.6 million ballots, she said we’re not going to follow the law. Pennsylvania law says mail-in ballots can’t be processed until Election Day, but some county commissioners, some county commissioners says no and allow ballots to be cured, to be fixed, to be changed before Election Day. And you can imagine which counties allowed that. You can just imagine. Democrat counties allowed it. Republican counties didn’t. The legislature determines the time, place, and manner of elections, not State Supreme Courts, not secretary of state, not county commissioners. All of those entities took actions that directly violated the law, the law that state legislatures enacted and thereby violated the Constitution,” Jordan concluded.
These words are true. These words are right. We need more men like Jordan who are willing to fight against big government liberals — peacefully, mind you, which is something that should go without saying, — doing battle in the marketplace of ideas. Truth is, we need more civil dialogues. We need to acknowledge that people deserve to be heard.
If our ideas are absolute truth, and they are, then when we unleash them in passionate debate, they cannot be defeated, whether we make good cases or bad ones.
Here’s to hoping our nation returns to the Constitution one day, in all of its glory.
