What a day to finally formally introduce what has been discussed recently as the newest effort to control the Us government. Imposed after the Civil War there is a line in the 14th Amendment that states

"shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof"

will not be able to hold a federal office. Spearheaded by Marc Elias this is a huge ploy to try to keep the Red Wave coming in 2022...and 2024.

The Progressives are scared and it is really starting to show.

www.breitbart.com...

Now, with the FBI stating there was no insurrection it will be hard to try to push this to fruition but all is needs is a month of news cycles. I guess with 45 cancelling his speech the media needed to drop something on 1/6. He is calling on calling in governors to enforce and try to keep people off ballots. This same guy spearheaded a movement to show 45 was aided by the Russians in 2016.




Anyone who assisted President Donald Trump’s team in encouraging challenges to the election results in Congress is defined as “participating” in the insurrection, according to the coalition, which cites a Rolling Stone report as its source, and names several incumbent Republican members of Congress whom it would disqualify for doubting the 2020 election results.

Some Democrats have already begun demanding the disqualification of Republicans who merely signed legal briefs supporting election challenges in the courts. As liberal constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley, who opposes the disqualification effort, noted recently, the U.S. vehemently opposes such efforts in other countries, such as Iran.



thehill.com...




Elias and others are suggesting that — rather than defeat Republicans at the polls — Democrats in Congress could disqualify the Republicans for supporting or encouraging the Jan. 6 “insurrection.” Last year, Democratic members called for the disqualification of dozens of Republicans. One, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) demanded the disqualification of the 120 House Republicans — including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy(R-Calif.) — for simply signing a “Friend of the Court brief” (or amicus brief) in support of an election challenge from Texas.


This is a facist state my friends in action. This was the plan all along....

I think there was election fraud, and I'm willing to disregard any agency that tries to label me as a criminal for giving an opinion.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Make a list of every Democratic candidate who called Trump's election illegitimate, and file suits to keep them off the ballot in November.

The progressives and liberals have constantly gone against the government and police forces of our country. No progressives or Liberals should be able to hold office if they do this kind of crap. AOC and Waters are guilty as hell, so is Pelosi...taking a knee to support someone doing a crime and calling for defunding of the police is actions against the country.

Don't gloss over the really important fact there.

The Democrat Party is now the defacto state.

Dare exercise your god damn first amendment right against a bunch of thieving,cheating commmies.

You've no right run against them, because you 'levied war against them'.

Even though between what they pulled for over a year with Antifa/Blm and show trial impeachments was the real treason.

This could be a very heavy straw to ask the camel to carry.

I knew really bad tidings were in the wind. Demo task list has been cleared to only 1 item for the next year, the election, Its game on.

ETA: is this why Trump cancelled? A rally is not considered an ‘insurrection’ attempt, but a press conference might be?

I think you are right when you point to the ''insurrection'' question, that this left wing ploy is dependent upon the necessity of painting the riots at the capital as an ''insurrection''.

While liberals contend that it was an insurrection and conservatives contend that it was just a peaceful protest with a few bad apples, there are also other conservative contentions. One is that Antifa was central to the violence. Yet the FBI has stated that there was no real evidence that this was the case.

www.reuters.com... USKCN2AU22P

However there are also conservative contentions that the FBI itself was instrumental in fomenting the violence as we have read in previous post here on ATS about how Ray Epps was used to foment the violence.

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Continuing in this vein are all of the insinuations over that last long period of time that the FBI is not to be trusted when it comes to anything of honest value.

Yet here, in presenting your case that this move to invalidate a number of conservative candidates due to this clause in the 14th because Jan 6 WAS NOT an insurrection, you use the idea that the FBI said it was not an insurrection and that will make it harder to implement actions based on that clause in the 14th.

But here's a thing. That statement was put out by the FBI back in August. That was almost half a year ago and things are moving fast. Is it not a possibility that to put trust in the FBI on this sole account of saying what some want to hear is really just a red herring to divert many from the real investigations into the causes and players who orchestrated that event?

I think using the FBI as any final authority on anything is a dramatic failure on our part to ascertain what is happening around us. Them saying half a year ago that they found no evidence of insurrection could be nothing more than an attempt to tell right wing enthusiasts '' you're off the hook'' so go on about your business cuz we are not looking at you any longer.

Again I would be cautious of anything they have to say.

We know now that on Jan 6th, Trump ignored his family, friends and advisors when he was implored to go on the air and quell the violence for a long time. Yet here, I think, is a simple case of him listening to them.

His first impulse was to try to up stage the anniversary tomorrow that will be pushed by the main stream media. He wanted to face it head on. But his advisors pushed against that, possibly because any of his errant comments might have been used to up hold this notion that he was at the top of the chain of the violence. His advisors did not want this to happen and he listened to them.

That and of course the strong possibility that he would not get the air time he hopes to get. As well, the ''bad press'' he would have gotten in juxtaposition to the massive amount of push the press will be putting on the''insurrection story'' as that anniversary happens tomorrow.

Well, we know that Wray lied when he said Antifa wasn't at the protest. They were, along with at least 12 other groups that were planning counter-protests.

The FBI has been working against Trump all along, so when their own report cleared him of wrongdoing, that's pretty significant. Just like the Muller report: The Dems hired him for the specific purpose of bringing Trump down, and he ended up reporting that the crimes Trump supposedly committed were pure fiction.

It would be awfully suspicious if the FBI suddenly declares that it found some kind of evidence of planning, six months after declaring that there was no such evidence.

We should both know by now that the attention span of most people is a short lived thing. I include my own attention span in there as well. It can easily be forgotten what they said 6 months ago about both antifa and about capital hill rioters. IN so many cases it what we ''choose'' to remember.

For any on the fence about the true nature of Jan 6th a new FBI release stating something like '' Upon further investigations it has been determined that it WAS an insurrection'' this could easily be accepted. Not of course to those who insist it was not. To them it would be awfully suspicious but that is to be expected.

I'm going to assume (charitably) that he canceled because he knows what a bad look it would be to exploit a national controversy for political gain. His marketing team is likely very disapproving of such cavalier and self serving media presence.

the evil left cannot win based on policy.

They can only win by cheating, gaming, engineering the election process.

And they lie.

I spent some time just now at twitter following a Marc Elias thread about this effort. Im stunned! The echochamber that hot mess has become truly want their party to be the only party in DC. They want the GOP crushed.

I believe one of the MOST important doctrines in our Constitution is SEPARATION of POWER. This is completely essential to our liberties and rights. A single party in power, because they have seized it, with the rights of people to choose their own representatives denied, isnt what this country is about.

Congress doesnt have a constitutional right to conduct a criminal investigation, which is what they are trying to do. An end run around the DoJ. The executive is charged with the duties the committee is attempting. SCOTUS has shut these kinds of end runs down in the past. Congress cant find anyone guilty of insurrection. Which is what would be required to pull this off.

They know. See my post above about there being 13 left-wing groups at the protests.

It's the same reason as why several people had charges against them dropped: the DOJ is protecting them.

I can easily accept this as a valid premise, that the concerns over the directions of the Republican Party are of great concern to liberalism. Yet I offer this in response.

www.theglobeandmail.com...

Here, a Canadian specialist in the history of political violence writes in an Op-ed that

''By 2025, American democracy could collapse, causing extreme domestic political instability, including widespread civil violence. By 2030, if not sooner, the country could be governed by a right-wing dictatorship.''

The extrapolated fears on the left mirror the extrapolated fears on the right. Or is it the fears on the right mirror the fears on the left?
What I find more likely is that the complexities of managing the present into a manageable future are both being sensed by people on both sides of the political spectrum

Congress is only allowed to issue subpoenas for legitimate legislative purposes. This is why seeming most people just flush a congressional subpoena down the toilet, and nothing ever comes of it. Their prosecutorial powers begin & end with determining if an offense is serious enough to warrant impeachment (not just with the president).

I read about half that link, Terry, even after the first sentence that labelled the incident at the capitol an insurrection. Not a single person has been charged with insurrection, so this is a bit of a biased lie!

I continued past the statement of how by 2030 the US could have a ‘rightwing dictatorship’ firmly in place. Yet today, its the left attempting to restrict our liberties, and deny the right to elect our own reps.

I sighed at the statement of absurdity that Trump might ever have been elected. Nevermind the absurd notion of a childpawing, meth addict admiring, addle brained Big Guy, sending his poor haunted son to be his bagman. Absurd?

An unbiased analysis of the dangerous fracture in American politics, and the solution would be highly welcomed, sadly this isnt it, its just more of the partisan same.
