Short Takes – An Ant in the Sugar BowlOpinion, Politics January 6, 2021
If you see an ant in a sugar bowl, you know your larder has been penetrated. Ants don’t speak, they’re just there and are easily removed; not so politicians! As I’ve said often, the basic operating theory of Democrats is to deny everything, admit nothing and blame the other guy. Secretary of State Raffensperger, like an ant in our sugar bowl, has denied speaking to President Trump before the leaked phone call, never said he “believed it was appropriate” to do so and is blaming President Trump and his staff for continuing to push for the phone call.
“We took the call and we had a conversation,” Raffensperger explained. “He did most of the talking. We did most of the listening, (so did many of us) but I did want to make my points the data he has is just plain wrong. He had hundreds and hundreds of people he said that were dead that voted. We found two, that’s an example. He has bad data”
Mainstream media accounts of this Presidential communication are not to be trusted like the Washington Post’s take on it. Radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt framed the argument correctly. On the certification debate he said: “Following both the 2004 and 2016 elections, Democrats in Congress objected during the certification of electoral votes in order to raise concerns about election integrity. Off course integrity is everything except Marxist Democrats.
Hewitt continued: “They were praised by Democratic leadership and the media when they did.” While they were entitled to do so then now those of us conservatives concerned about the integrity of this election are entitled to do exactly the same. Sen Josh Hawley announced that he would object to the electoral college count saying his concerns were animated by exactly the same concerns that vexed Democrats in both 2004 and 2016, elections they lost. Constitutionally, his right to object is as grounded in law as the Democrats were back when.
But the issue now is who can Conservatives trust to fill Georgia’s three most important elected state offices, Governor, State Attorney General and Secretary of State, and trust them to fulfill their obligations? The mistrust that now surrounds two out of three of Georgia’s Constitutional Officers, (66%), is nothing to brag about. When they ignore the State and US Constitution in performing the most sacred duty most Americans are called upon to perform, voting, they imperiled us to accept a level of corruption that will ultimately lead to a one-party government (Communist). Once they gain total power they will, like spreading cancer, never relinquish it again. Enter the totalitarian state, the swarm of ants in the sugar bowl!
For Georgian’s now, the fear is not that conservative Senators Perdue and Loeffler won’t get the most votes, it’s how the Democrats have arranged to steal those votes and install two Communists in their place. Do we see a pattern here? Has our Governor Kemp and Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, moved heaven and earth to ensure there are not boxes of mail-in ballots hidden under tables in the counting houses? Have they ordered photo ID and signature comparisons to be applied to all Georgia voting precincts? Have they ordered that late ballots, after polls closed, should be trashed? Have they ordered that only legal votes can be counted?
They didn’t do so for the National election, why should we expect them to do so now? I’m just asking! You should be asking too. Today, 05 Jan 2012, will either mark this as the first day of America’s recovery to a Republic or its last day as a Republic. What lies in between is unconscionable. If Americans turn to violence, one citizen against the other, then we’re in for decades of turmoil. Will the Chinese just sit by a watch? I don’t think so either!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ’em! (05Jan21)
