Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Thanks as always to Bacon Time, The Other McCain, Pirate’s Cove and Whores and Ale for the Rule Five links!

This is about as good a description of what might come out of the election audits as any I’ve seen.  Excerpt:

We just don’t know. We just don’t know what comes next. It is all a calculated guess. The US Constitution is silent. Even if, if, if, it is so very clear through professional forensic election audit results, that the presidential election of 2020 was stolen and President Trump actually won, there appears to be no obvious remedy stated in the US Constitution to right this wrong. We just don’t know.

The Founding Fathers did not write up a “what if” in the Constitution to make things right. The Founding Fathers wrote up nothing in the Constitution in case mail-in ballots or the internet were used to manipulate the vote. The scary part is that since the answer to possible election fraud appears not to be in the Constitution, nor in federal law, nor in federal court cases, then the answer-the remedy will come from somewhere else. That somewhere else, we know not. But probably not from the words within the US Constitution. Much of this is conjecture.

Clearly the Founders didn’t foresee this: The people losing faith in the election process following an election tally so full of uncertainty as to throw the outcome in doubt.

The generally accepted remedy for Presidential shenanigans is impeachment and removal from office, but let’s face it, that’s not going to happen here.  I’m guessing that it’s better than even odds that President Biden (not his handlers, who will move on to the next occupant) will be 25th Amendment-ed before the 2022 elections, and very possibly before the end of this year.  But that puts Heels-Up Harris in the driver’s seat, which will manifestly be bad for America.  Even a double impeachment would do nothing more than place Queen Nancy in the Imperial Mansion.

There is no Constitutional process for removing a President/Vice President and installing their opponents in place following a recount and audit of ballots.  And the methods defined for removing a President after the election is certified won’t help.

We’re between Scylla and Charybdis here, folks.

The article concludes:

Conclusion. We just don’t know. We do not know what comes next. This is the situation America finds itself in when roughly half of the American people believe at the very least the election results to be very, very questionable; and then roughly half of the American people would not allow Biden/Harris to be removed from office no matter what the forensic audits might clearly show. The Constitution is mute. Federal law is silent. State laws are inconsistent. Emotions are very high. Compromise is unlikely at this point.

This just plain won’t end well.  The best-case is the GOP gathers some cojones and re-takes House and Senate in 2022, thus limiting the damage unchecked Dems can do.  The worst case?  Well, I think we know what the worst case is.
