With all the tumult taking place here in the United States over the recent Election, it is worth pointing out that, in the year 2000, Democrat Al Gore was "called" as "President-Elect" by the news media. Thirty-seven (37) Days later, that changed.
There were all sorts of lawsuits over election irregularities in the year 2000, and those lawsuits made their way all the way to the US Supreme Court.
That Court settled the election legal issues and Gore's opponent, George W. Bush, became President.
Right now, it looks to me like Joe Biden is the next Al Gore.
As any _informed_ reader already knows, there are issues of outright fraud in this years' election that are so obvious, so brazen, and so ugly, they defy belief. Blank mail-in votes being filled-out by vote counters as they hide behind cardboard covering count-center windows. Delivery of phony ballots in the middle of the night by cars and trucks via the back doors at counting centers. Refusal of Sheriff's and Police to enforce lawful Court Orders allowing Observers to watch the count, unregistered and non-existent persons names on ballots. Dead people voting. Ballots being stolen by Postal Workers. Ballots being shredded by count-center workers. On and on it goes.
So rampant is the outright criminal fraud in places like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, Nevada, and perhaps even Arizona, that a recap of it all is actually dizzying to read. I won't go into it here, but you can read all about it HERE.
Put simply, there are a LOT of legal issues to be resolved and those issues call into question the validity of entire state vote counts.
Given the broad geographic areas involved, it is completely conceivable that the Electoral Votes of several entire states may not be usable at the Electoral College!
It is also conceivable that neither Trump nor Biden will garner the needed 270 Electoral Votes to be victorious.
On its face, it seems the US Supreme Court may see a Tsunami of legal actions coming their way over this election.
So what might the court do?
Well, they may be able to redress issue by issue for each and every state, resulting in the ability for that state's electoral votes to be cast.
They may also be UNABLE to redress issues in certain states, and may have to RESTRAIN that state's Electors from casting votes in the Electoral College.
They may declare the entire national election poisoned by fraud. Or they may not be ABLE to rule in time.
This last possibility could lead to the simple solution found in the Constitution's 12th Amendment.
The 12th Amendment reads as follows:
The Electors shall meet in their respective states and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as Vice-President, and they shall make distinct lists of all persons voted for as President, and of all persons voted for as Vice-President, and of the number of votes for each, which lists they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate;-The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted;-The person having the greatest Number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in the case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President-The person having the greatest number of votes as Vice-President, shall be the Vice-President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed, and if no person have a majority, then from the two highest numbers on the list, the Senate shall choose the Vice-President; a quorum for the purpose shall consist of two-thirds of the whole number of Senators, and a majority of the whole number shall be necessary to a choice. But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.
Most folks, when they read this, see that the House of Representatives casts the vote for President, while the Senate casts the vote for Vice-President. Most folks think that since the House is Democrat-controlled, Joe Biden is a shoe-in. They think wrong.
A closer reading of the 12th Amendment holds a very nasty surprise for Democrats: When the House votes for President, there aren't 435 votes; there are only 50. Each STATE gets one vote.
Uh oh ! ! ! ! !
Out of the fifty US States, only TWENTY (20) are controlled by Democrats. But they have such huge populations that they get more Representatives and thus control the House under normal affairs.
That leaves THIRTY (30) States controlled by Republicans.
So out of the fifty votes, done along Party Lines, it would be Trump 30, Biden 20. Trump wins.
This has been the supreme law of our land since the 12th Amendment was Ratified by the states in the year 1804. This has been the rule for 216 years.
Now, given what the left-wing Democrats, Progressives, Liberals, and their Socialist/Commie pals have been doing for the past 6 months (Rioting, Looting, Burning and killing) -- all of which suddenly went away after Joe Biden "won" -- I think it is obvious what we will see if the situation plays out as I just outlined above: The left will go completely off the deep end, and explode with rage and violence.
It's what they do . . .
Americans ought to prepare in earnest for this possibility because while the left is basking in the afterglow of their fraudulently-won election, there's no telling how suicidal or homicidal they will be when reality hits and they lose.
P.S. Not to rub salt in the Democrat's coming wound, it should be noted that in the year 2000, when George W. Bush sued to the US Supreme Court to win his Presidency, two of the Attorneys who represented Bush were named Kavanaugh and Barrett; As in Bret Kavanaugh and Amy Coney-Barrett . . . the two justices President Trump appointed to the Supreme Court!
Pardon me while I gloat.
