Both The Roar Of The Lion & The Voice of The People Being Shut Out By Republicans
By Judi McLeod –December 9, 2020
The logo illustrating this article (source unknown) was forwarded to the Mother Ship yesterday by savvy CFP columnist Jim O’Neill.
The logo is perfect for our times, depicting President Donald Trump as a lion “because (the GOP elephant and the Democrat donkey) “isn’t working anymore.
Aside from the 74 million American voters who gave him a landslide—stolen from him early in the morning of November 4th, Trump the Lionhearted stands alone—abandoned by members of his own Party.
Only the truth-telling Epoch Times seems to have noted it.
‘As Trump Fights Election Fraud, Most Republicans in Congress Remain Quiet’- (Epoch Times, Dec. 8, 2020)
Quiet as the grave now being dug for America as a falsely-crowned ‘President-Elect’ proceeds to bury America the Beautiful under soul-killing Socialism.
Hiding from Covid, while America is in business-killing Lockdown, the elephants, just like the Dem donkeys, are not coming out to water.
Leaving the president to fight alone, they are afraid of getting their curls wet.
“WASHINGTON—As credible allegations of election malfeasance continue to emerge, the majority of Republican politicians remain on the sidelines, simply saying that the president deserves his day in court. (The Epoch Times)
“On the federal level, among the most outspoken are, predictably, members of the House Freedom Caucus, many of whom hail from one of the six contested states—Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia.
“Reps. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) and Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) go so far as to say they believe President Donald Trump won.”
Not too brave of them considering that 70% of Americans believe that their president won.
“Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) is taking his case to the U.S. Supreme Court, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has offered to make oral arguments for the case.” (Epoch Times)
Where was their outrage when the media and Democrats stopped vote counting on Election Night over a month ago?
Did GOP reps think that Sidney Powell, L. Lyn Woods, Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis could do all the work while they sat comfortably home on their hands?
Surely it would make many of those who voted for them, wonder.
“A dozen members of the Freedom Caucus held a press conference on Dec. 3 to urge Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate the claims of fraud, saying that a lack of clean elections and trust in the system will spell the end of the republic. (Epoch Times)
“There are 196 Republican representatives in the House, and a scroll through the Twitter accounts of many found they were united last week in protesting against efforts to pass legislation on marijuana legalization instead of relief for small businesses.
“But there were barely any posts that address election issues, amplify the election allegations made, or comment on the recent hearings held in the contested states—suggesting they’re avoiding wading in.
“The representatives’ efforts, or lack thereof, don’t seem to match voter sentiment, considering that more than 70 percent of Republican voters are saying they don’t trust that the election was free and fair, according to a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll published on Nov. 9.
“In Georgia, more than 90 percent of Trump voters don’t trust the results of the presidential election, according to an online survey of more than 1,700 subscribers to the The Epoch Times on Dec. 7.
“At a Trump rally in Valdosta, Georgia, on Dec. 5, the crowd broke out chanting “Fight for Trump! Fight for Trump!” as the two senators up for reelection, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, took the stage.
“Meanwhile, Trump has been urging Republicans to “get tough” as he continues to raise awareness of affidavits by election workers and poll watchers that allege election fraud, as well as statistical anomalies and potential legal aberrations.
“He has named and shamed governors and politicians who he says aren’t doing enough to investigate election issues, or are certifying results that he alleges are still fraudulent.
“On Dec. 5, Trump said the Democratic Party couldn’t be happier with both Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, both Republicans.
“They fight harder against us than do the Radical Left Dems. If they were with us, we would have already won both Arizona and Georgia,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
“Epoch Times contributor and political commentator Roger Simon said the disparity highlights the existence of two Republican parties.
“One is the party of the rank and file—which is clearly behind Trump, as 95 percent voted for him. And the other is the old establishment Party, which is partly Never Trumpers and partly just establishment bores,” Simon said.
“So what you’re dealing with is a huge split between the actual people who vote Republican—the actual people that the political party exists for—and the people who are running the party. Now, not all of them, there’s some good people.”
“But, Simon warned, the politicians should “wake up and listen to their voters.”
“Lee Smith, author of “The Permanent Coup” and contributor to The Epoch Times, said many Republicans are scared “because of what the Democrats have done in partnership with the intelligence services and the press” over the last four years.
“They’re scary things,” Smith said, referring to the last four years, which included disproven allegations of Russia-collusion, impeachment against the president, and campaigns against politicians such as Rep. Devin Nunes (R–Calif.) for denouncing the unmasking of Trump transition team members, as well as the illegal spying conducted as part of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation.
“Gosar said more Republican politicians need to stand up despite the possibility of retaliation.
“It’s going to come if it’s going to come,” Gosar told The Epoch Times on Dec. 8. “And I wouldn’t change anything, because we’re a nation of laws, and we have to have oversight.
“I challenge everybody: If that’s the America that we live in, where you have to fear retaliation for doing the right thing, then this is a banana republic, not a constitutional republic. And we’re further down the line of communism.”
“Gosar said politicians need to answer to the people, and those in the contested states should be demanding oversight.
“He has lodged Freedom of Information requests with the Arizona secretary of state, the governor, the attorney general, and the Board of Supervisors in Maricopa County, to discover whether they did their due diligence.
“It’s hard for me to believe—maybe I’m wrong—that the Board of Supervisors did their due diligence with the [voting machine] software,” Gosar said.
“As long as the election issues remain unresolved, Americans are finding out that their vote doesn’t really count, Gosar said.
“They get it, they’re not stupid. We won’t have a free and fair election ever again,” he said.
“The Epoch Times reached out to seven other Congress members, but none were available for an interview.
“The Department of Justice didn’t respond to multiple requests for comment on election-related investigations.”
Meanwhile, Republicans, thoroughly tone deaf to the Roar of the Lion, pretend not to hear the Voice of The People.
But against all odds, both are still out there.
