From Camped on the Right:
Yesterday, January 6th, 2017, during a joint special session of Congress to certify the results of the Electoral College, the presiding official, (VP Joe Biden), was interrupted several times by House Democrats, and, at the end, by a few disgruntled snowflakes in the gallery. In the video below, you will see Mr. Biden say, (to the laughter of attendees), It is Over, a distinct admission Democrats and their fawning Liberal Media should take to heart:
For those of you who would care to watch either the full version of the session, or a few brief one’s, I’ve provided these links:
The bottom line, President Elect Donald J. Trump received 304 electoral votes while Hillary Clinton ended up with 227 despite the out-of-order objections from the floor. Not one “objector” could find one Democrat Senator to sign their petitions, which would have led to an actual discussion/debate.
Since November 8th, the Democrats, (in concert with the Main Stream Liberal Media, and with Hillary Clinton’s blessings), have mounted every “objection” in their playbooks to convince their constituents that the legitimacy of this election is in question.
From the immediate rioting in the streets, (rumored to be Soros-sponsored), to the embarrassing Jill Stein recounts, (that revealed wide-spread voter fraud on the part of the Democrat’s votes), and this last gasp of “Russian hacking/interference”, the Democratic Party has continuously rejected the results of a free and fair election—where no voting machines were compromised, and no voters were disenfranchised or prevented from going to the polls— yet, “the peaceful transition of power” has become a mockery of our Republic.
Prior to the election Mrs. Clinton said this:
“Failure to accept the election results is a direct threat to our democracy—Peaceful transfer of power is a must” ~ Hillary Rodham Clinton
After the election, in her concession speach, Mrs. Clinton said this:
“But I still believe in America, and I always will. And if you do, then we must accept this result and then look to the future. Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power.” ~ Hillary Rodham Clinton
Also, the day after the election, President Obama said this in the Rose Garden:
“The presidency, the vice presidency is bigger than any of us,” Obama said Wednesday. “We’re actually all on one team. We’re not Democrats first. We’re not Republicans first. We’re patriots first. We all want what’s best for this country.”
“We are now all rooting for his success in uniting and leading the country” ~ President Barack Obama
It is NOW time for all Americans to heed these words from Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton. They must not ring hollow, or be taken as rhetorical political speech-making. Every Presidential candidate and eventual winner, (or loser), has respected the peaceful transition of power as paramount to our Democratic Republic. Enough is enough!
I don’t recall Republicans acting this way when Democrats won the election. The last time anything similar happened was 2004, when the thankfully-now-retired Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) protested the acceptance of Ohio’s electoral votes.
