DONALD J. Trump will be re-elected president of the United States, and here is why.
Article II, Section 1, ¶2 of the U.S. Constitution states: “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress…” Also, the U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land under Article VI, ¶2, which states in relevant part: “This Constitution… shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any state to the Contrary notwithstanding.” In other words, any interpretation, construction or settlement of state law by the state’s executive or judicial branch contrary to any law enacted by the state legislature regarding selection of state presidential electors violates Article II and Article VI of the U.S. Constitution.
Numerous lawsuits were filed in state and/or federal courts in swing states such as Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Nevada — win of any two of these states together with Pennsylvania will garner Trump more than 270 electoral votes (necessary minimum to be elected president). The Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court the Pennsylvania state Supreme Court’s decision that disregarded state statute disallowing popular presidential votes received after the polls were closed on November 3, 2020 — already U.S. Supreme Court Justice Alito has ordered that ballots received after November 3, 2020, should be separately counted from the ballots casted on election day. At a minimum, there are about 800,000 absentee ballots received and counted after November 3, 2020 — and the vast majority went for Joseph Biden. Pennsylvania has 20 electoral votes.
Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s lead attorney, is appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court the U.S. Third Circuit Court’s decision throwing out their lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania. The U.S. Eleventh Circuit Court agreed to entertain Attorney Lin Wood’s independent lawsuit for Trump filed in Georgia on the grounds of equal protection of the law where the votes were counted differently from Democratic-controlled and Republican-controlled counties, contrary to state law. Attorney Sidney Powell unleashed the Kraken in federal courts in Georgia and Michigan claiming that the Dominion voting machines used to count the ballots were programmed in their algorithms to switch votes to Biden whenever Trump was winning the count — in one of the states, the algorithms broke down by the overwhelming votes for Trump that the count was stopped for at least four hours (broken pipe was the excuse used) to allow for mysterious ballots in the hundreds of thousands that ALL went to Biden to miraculously appear. The Kraken is the newly formed Space Force code to combat cyber-hacking by rogue parties or countries — China and Iran were implicated here, and there was a bust in Germany by the U.S. military confiscating equipment and arresting people connected to the 2020 U.S. presidential election. Georgia and Michigan are each assigned 16 electoral votes.
Everyone knows that the U.S. Supreme Court is NOT going to decide whether Donald J. Trump is the winner of the electoral votes in the contested states. What it will probably do is to send back the matter to the contested states ordering that the votes be counted and tabulated strictly in accordance with the statute enacted by the state legislature. Or, throw back the matter on the shoulder of state legislatures. You see, when the ILLEGAL votes cannot be determined that they were for Joseph Biden or Donald Trump, and that the matter just cannot be resolved in any way legally under state law, then each state legislature should assert its authority on how the presidential electors should be selected. In all of the six contested states, the state legislature is Republican-controlled. Already the Pennsylvania state legislature is asserting authority to de-cide the matter, and it has approved a resolution decertifying the election result in that state. The Michigan and Arizona state legislatures have held hearings regarding allegations of voter fraud, irregularities and what-have-you. Very likely that each state legislature legislators will have themselves appointed as electors… this was the case in the early days of the Republic.
Right now, Trump has a firm 232 electoral votes, and if none of the six contested states can send certifiably appointed electors’ votes to Washington, D.C. by December 14, 2020, then the Congress must make do with the certified electors votes from uncontested states, in which case if Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia (combined 70 electoral votes) are decertified by the state legislature, Trump will have a majority over 459 duly appointed electoral votes. The Twelfth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution requires only a simple majority of the appointed electoral votes to be president of the United States.
At the Republican-controlled Arizona legislative hearing, however, the Trump legal team presented an 1892 U.S. Supreme Court case titled McPherson v. (Black?) wherein the Court said that the state legislature may at anytime assert its authority under the U.S. Constitution to appoint the electors they desire to vote for their choice president — prominent constitutional lawyer Alan Dershowitz confirmed this qualifying it with certain reservations. Assuming that Michigan’s and Arizona’s Republican-controlled state legislature’s electors appointment all go for Trump, and Pennsylvania sends no electors, Trump will have 269 electoral votes while Biden will have 259 to his credit (assuming that he gets Wisconsin, Nevada and Georgia (33 electoral votes, which is very unlikely because Biden in these states has a very slim margin of being ahead versus huge numbers of voter fraud and irregularities claims by Republican-voter and potential pledged-electors claims). Matai si Biden’s bid for the presidency.
But assuming that Trump and Biden each gets an even 269 electoral votes, then it devolves upon the U.S. House of Representatives to select who will be president of the United States under Twelfth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In such case, each state will have only ONE vote, assuming that the single vote attains a majority of that state’s representatives in Congress, and a simple majority of all the states’ votes to whomever gets elected president. But here is the catch, the U.S. House of Representatives is composed of, I believe, of not less than 26 Republican-state delegates, and they would surely cast their combined single vote in favor of Trump. The House of Representatives Democrats, however, have an ace up their sleeve, because the Twelfth Amendment requires a two-third of the House from each state to be present to constitute a quorum to conduct business. But if history is any lesson, like the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, where Anti-Federalists were literally dragged to the convention hall for the purpose of the constitution convention’s quorum, it will take only eight Democratic congressmen (34 will constitute a quorum) to be dragged to the congressional chamber for purposes of obtaining the necessary quorum, and once that is obtained they can walk out of the chamber. But I think Trump is way ahead of the equation — maybe because of the elite Kraken Space Force commandos, and I believe the armed forces will be mobilized on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., just in case any lunatic pro-Biden supporters gather to disrupt any proceedings up on the Hill, and for the dragging, or maybe of what may happen at the Supreme Court.
Just curious, if all this should happen, will Biden concede and call for uniting the American people to accept Trump as president? I doubt it. Biden is all talk with no substance. The Trump-haters will drop him into oblivion. Trump-haters will have another four miserable years!
