  • House Democrats could vote against certifying Trump

    Yes, let's get the idea out there, perhaps we can warm up to the possibility...


    House Democrats could vote against certifying Trump if he’s elected, writes The Atlantic

    Article argued U.S. Supreme Court must weigh in on Trump's eligibility for office, or House Democrats might

    A new piece published in The Atlantic this week floated the idea that there might be room for House Democrats to vote against certifying former President Trump for office if he wins re-election.

    The article, written by staff writer Russell Berman, argued that if the Supreme Court declined to weigh in on whether Trump is eligible to run for office under the 14th Amendment, then House Democrats could take it upon themselves to vote against certifying him, as it’s up to them to say he’s ineligible.

    Berman wrote that "legal scholars say that, absent clear guidance from the Supreme Court, a Trump win could lead to a constitutional crisis in Congress. Democrats would have to choose between confirming a winner many of them believe is ineligible and defying the will of voters who elected him."

    Wasn't trying to get Congressmen to refuse to certify the 2020 election cited as an example of insurrection?

      That plus a several months of Trump sending out dog whistles (that only the left seems to hear) planning to take over the government on J6 are cited. Here it's a blatant attempt to do what the left accused Trump of doing.
      We know J6 wasn’t peaceful because they didn’t set the building on fire.

        Well that is because Republicans did it, so it's bad...

          And kiss goodbye to democracy in the process. It would be interesting (in the Chinese sense) to see how far other nations would go in recognising the coup. Don't bother going to Argentina, make one in your own back-yard.

            If we believe old Joe, world leaders are virtually standing in line to tell him "you’ve got to win because my democracy is at stake if the other guy wins." He even has talked to Margaret Thatcher who expressed concerns about Trump being re-elected.

            Of course Thatcher died over 2 decades ago, back in 2013, so it is about as likely as the duffer's recent conversations with the long dead Francois Mitterrand and Helmut Kohl.

              You have a necromancer for a president? And who is impersonating the iron lady? The real Thatcher would be not be barracking for Biden, and she'd probably be looking askance at Trump.

                I read something recently about old Joe and his failing memory that included a quote from Mark Twain:

                “When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it had happened or not; but my faculties are decaying now and soon I shall be so I cannot remember any but the things that never happened.”


                Joe is increasingly living in his false memories. Repeating things as real that in the past he was forced to admit weren't true.

                  Yup. If they do this and get away with it, then you can expect the losing party to do the same in every election to come as long as they have enough votes.

                    That can't be right. We are frequently told by highly reliable sources that it's only conservatives who try to subvert the will of the people.

                      IIRC, prior to 2020 we were told challenging the result of an election was the epitome of "democracy in action" and extremely patriotic.

                        Thankfully after we get the millions of illegal to vote the conservatives will ever hold national office again.

                          But that are doing it for a good cause!

                            We’re not a democracy, remember? A democracy is *ahem* two wolves and a sheep deciding what’s for dinner.
