2020 Election Questions Linger

In one of the grandest schemes of hypocrisy ever seen in modern politics, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is claiming the 2020 election is not over just yet.

She is trying to remove a sitting member of Congress, Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-Iowa) after her election was certified---without any evidence of fraud.

The Arizona State Legislature is also saying "hold it," we want to see the ballots---not the results of the ballots---the ballots themselves--- 2.1 million of them are being audited and hand-counted.

Be informed, not misled.

Progressive's hypocrisy is shameless and blatant.  

What we're learning is that it is "tragedy," "mockery" or a "coup" if Republicans even question election results, but it's saving the country if Democrats question election results.

No kidding, Nancy Pelosi is actually trying to get rid of Iowa Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks weeks after the election was certified---without any evidence of fraud.

It was a close election, but Miller not only won the first ballot count, but she also has won 3 more counts after the original election day count. And has been certified as the winner.

Her Democrat opponent, Rita Hart, is refusing to go through normal legal channels to challenge the result and is instead asking House Democrats to reverse the results.

And the House Democrats are considering it---all these months after the November election.

Even the Des Moines Register is struck by the hypocrisy and timing of this effort by Democrats and the way in which they are trying to reverse an election.

The election was very close, but Miller-Meeks won all four counts. In the first count---the general election, Miller-Meeks won by 282 votes. In the fourth count, her victory dwindled to 6 votes, but by all accounts, she won all four.

Nancy and her House of Representatives are making more than a few people very nervous about what she is looking to do. Even CNN, who is a faithful friend to Pelosi and the radical far Left in our country, is questioning the wisdom of Democrats trying to overrule "the will of the voters just months after blasting former President Trump for trying to reverse his electoral defeat."

Several Democrats in the House of Representatives are asking:

"What motivates Congress to look at something that should be a state issue. I want to see what compelling reasons there are for the feds to get involved in this," Rep Lou Correa (D-CA) told his colleagues, "I think these are issues that right now are probably best left at the state level."

A number of other Democrats are in agreement. But Pelosi marches on.

Republican Mitch McConnell, now Minority Leader in the Senate, said Friday, 

"The process played out in a way that every liberal in America spent November, December, and January insisting is beyond question. Now, fast forward a few weeks, and the Democrat leadership is trying to use brute political power to kick [Miller-Meeks] out and replace this congresswoman with a Democrat who she defeated. You don 't often see hypocrisy this blatant and this shameless so quickly."

I'm wondering if social media will react as they did to Republicans, by flagging or removing all content that suggests an election was fraudulent----as Pelosi's operation is doing?

We know the answer--of course not. It's only "harmful misinformation" when conservatives ask questions.

One thing this attempt makes clear is that the radical Left is willing to violate any law to get the results they want and need to acquire power. It's true when they by-passed the states' authority and constitutional processes in November, and it's true now as they do whatever they feel they need to do to get and keep control of the country.

But now the country is watching. Americans know just how much hangs in the balances---and to what length so-called "progressives" will go to seize power.

The Arizona legislators released a statement last Thursday confirming their intent to audit ballots from Maricopa County, the state's most populous county.

It will be a "broad and detailed" audit, they say, and they will test "voting machines, scan ballots, look for IT breaches, and perform a hand count."

They say, "As thousands of our voters continue to call for a thorough audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County," they are pleased to report that they have chosen a highly competent team to do the forensic audit.

"When all the work is done," they say, "there will be a full report for the Senate and County to review. Our voters expect this audit, and it can be a big step in returning trust and confidence in our election process."

The Courts have ruled that the state Senate has the constitutional authority to do what they are doing.

The Senate says this was never about overturning an election---it is about the integrity of the Arizona election system---about getting to the truth.

Truth is a lonely warrior.

James Perloff wrote that "Truth is a lonely warrior," often evading the public.

Equating truth to virtue and morality, John Adams, America's second president, said, "Statesman, my dear sir, may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is Religion and  Morality alone, which can establish the Principles upon which freedom can securely stand." 

Continuing, he said, 

"The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure Virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our People in a greater measure, than they have it now, they may change their rulers and the forms of government, but they will not obtain a lasting liberty."

Truth and freedom are eternally linked.

In the chaos of the Crucifixion, Pilate looked Jesus in the face and asked, "What is Truth?" Clearly, he did not discern Truth when he was looking at it---or was simply in denial. He would later claim to the authorities that he did not believe Jesus was guilty of anything.

Washing his hands in water, he tried to put it all behind him, yet  historian Eusebius (Church History 2.7.1) writing in the early fourth century, claimed that "Pilate committed suicide after he was recalled to Rome due to the disgrace he was in."

Rigged elections and crooked politicians are not fundamentally the problem.

The problem in our nation is we have looked at Truth and chose to ignore Him. We will never fully recover from the chaos and the deception until we recognize and accept Him for who He is.

It is written: "You shall know the Truth and the Truth shall set you free"---and His morality and virtue will bring integrity to elections, and lasting liberty in the heart and in the culture.

True freedom.
