The following shows what the state legislatures and each branch of the federal government have the authority to do to address the monstrous crime which has been committed against our Country.
The essence of a “Republic” is that sovereign power is exercised by Representatives elected, directly or indirectly, by The People. 1 Election fraud strikes at the heart of our Constitutional Republic. Therefore, Congress, the federal courts and the Executive Branch [i.e., the “United States”] have the duty, imposed by Article IV, §4, to negate the fraud in order to preserve our republican form of government.
As shown below, the States also have authority to remedy the election fraud committed in their State.
Congress understood there would be fights in the States over the selection of the Electors. So they provided for the fights:
But the next two Sections address what happens when Electors aren’t appointed on November 3.
So we see that flexibility to deal with fights in the States over the selection of Electors is built into the US Code.
So the statutory framework recognizes that selecting the Presidential Electors can get messy; and that there would be fights over the Electors in the States and in Congress. We are working through this process right now.
Section 3 of the 20th Amendment shows that Congress has the authority to determine whether the President elect and Vice President elect are qualified for office. 2If either is not a natural born citizen, Congress has the power and the duty to disqualify that person. 3 Accordingly, it was Congress’ duty to inquire into whether Obama was a natural born citizen; and today it is Congress’ duty to inquire into whether Kamala Harris is a natural born citizen.
Congress also has the power - and the duty - to disqualify Biden and Harris on the ground that the fraud bringing about their sham “election” was an attack on the States’ Right, guaranteed by Article IV, §4, to have a republican form of government.
1 Federalist No. 10 (J. Madison): “A republic, by which I mean a government in which the scheme of representation takes place, … *** … The two great points of difference between a democracy and a republic are: first, the delegation of the government, in the latter, to a small number of citizens elected by the rest; …”
2 The qualifications are set forth at Article II, §1, clause 5 and the 12th Amendment, last sentence.
3 Whether or not a President elect or Vice President elect meet the constitutional qualifications for office is a political question for Congress to decide.
To be concluded with Part II next week.
