Constitutional Lawyer: "Trump Should Not Vacate the White House... he has a Legal & Moral Duty to Preserve the Republic by Implementing an Election Do-Over"
Today, former practicing constitutional law attorney Scott Lively in his website showed the paths that President Donald Trump needs to take to save our American Republic in his post "Trump Should Not Surrender the White House":
Trump Should Not Surrender the White House
If not for the surreal, unprecedented “Big Lie” conspiracy of the elites who monopolize our public information systems (Big Media and Big Tech) – and who dominate the top strata of our institutions, including the courts and intelligence agencies — all fair-minded Americans would agree that the 2020 election was irredeemably corrupted by fraud. The overwhelming preponderance of the evidence on the Trump side is matched only by the intensity of the criminal suppression of it by the anti-Trump side. Now even President Trump is admitting that it may be impossible to get his case to the Supreme Court for vindication of his election night victory through a full disclosure and review of that evidence by the constitutionalist majority of justices.
IF that turns out to be the case, and the elites have so thoroughly solidified control over the legal and political mechanisms which the Founders established for us, it will mean that they have broken the US Constitution itself. They will have accomplished what none of us believed possible – a coup d’ etat by means of the Purple Revolution, which is the domestic version of the color revolutions by which the globalist left and our CIA have overthrown governments across the globe. I have been writing about this Purple Revolution since before Trump’s inauguration in January 2017.
Now we know why Pelosi and the other narrative-setters of the Purple Revolution began injecting the then-mystifying accusation (without a shred of evidence) that Trump might refuse to vacate the White House on January 20th. They expected to be able to block Trump from getting his case to SCOTUS, and to be able to gaslight such a huge portion of the electorate with the “no evidence of fraud” Big Lie that we would accept their theft of the presidency as “constitutional,” and acquiesce to a “peaceful transition of power.”
I still believe SCOTUS will get the case and rescue the nation from the Marxists. And I believe the fall-back contingency of presidential electors being chosen by the state legislatures is a second path to preserving the republic.
However, if these last constitutional barriers to the overthrow of the United States are defeated by the globalists, there is only one remaining option for the free and just America our founders bequeathed to us to survive: a declaration of national emergency by President Trump to allow him to remain in office long enough for a new election to be conducted by means guaranteed to ensure its fairness, with every step of the process except the secret ballot casting itself being done under full public scrutiny and recorded on video.
It is essential to recognize in the face of this existential election fraud crisis, that the US Constitution is not the deepest foundation of our country. The bedrock on which the constitution was constructed is the Declaration of Independence. It is in that document that we find the remedy for curing the Marxist cancer that has put America on her death-bed.
Having been a front-lines culture war activist for more than three decades of America’s incremental take-over – fighting a rearguard action against same leftist elements now arrayed against Trump (with many deep battle scars to prove it) – I perceived that the trajectory of the Purple Revolution would likely bring us to this precipice. Therefore, on November 17th, 2016, I specifically predicted exactly what would and has now transpired:
“1) An army of faceless anarchists engaged in civil disobedience and property destruction on an “anti-fascism” theme (imagine the explosion of street violence in the late 1960s but employing “social justice” rather than anti-war rhetoric – like Black Lives Matter but bigger and broader). This is designed to terrorize the public but also to deliberately provoke police reactions that can be documented on film and edited to misrepresent the police as Brownshirt-style fascists.
2) A coordinated propaganda campaign by all the usual suspects on the left in media, academia, Hollywood, and the non-profit/foundations sector, branding the Trump administration as a fascist regime akin to the Third Reich. This will build slowly but inexorably as the left gathers and weaves together its case like a crooked prosecutor in the courtroom of international opinion.
3) Obstruction of conservative policy through guerrilla litigation tactics by groups such as the Center for Constitutional Rights and Southern Poverty Law Center, and their silent partners in the federal judiciary.”
I outlined a broad-brush counter-strategy in that article as well that remains timely. But on January 7th, 2020, after my predictions had come true and cracks had begun to show in the foundation-stones of the constitution, I foresaw the potential need for a more legally-oriented proto-constitutional remedy grounded in the Declaration of Independence, specifically this clause:
“governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…[thus] whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government.”
I drafted a “Declaration of Restoration” that frames the legal path forward. My prescription then and now is invoke this law to alter, not abolish, our government, by the use of the emergency powers of the president to impose necessary election reforms through a new presidential election with just two sections – 1) a re-vote for President and all down-ticket races and 2) a binding referendum question allowing voters to affirm or reject the reform package as a guarantee of election integrity in all future elections.
Hillary Clinton pronounced on August 25th, 2020 that Joe Biden should not concede the election under any circumstances. In retrospect, I believe she was baiting a trap for conservatives to jump on her with both feet and thus preemptively neuter any argument from our side that Trump should not concede. I never took that bait, and I’m saying loud and clear right now, that Donald Trump should not vacate the White House unless he does so because he agrees he legitimately lost the election and was not cheated out of it through election fraud.
If he knows the election was fraudulent and he really did win, he has a legal and moral duty to preserve the republic by implementing an election do-over. [https://www.scottlively.net/]
The publisher of the Catholic Monitor has made a pledge to say the
Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary everyday for a Rosary Lepanto-like
victory for President Trump. He asks all CM readers to make this pledge.
"THE HOLY ROSARY, MOST POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY OF GOD AND MAN... Saint Pius V ordered the faithful to recite the Rosary to impetrate victory from God in the epic battle of the Christian Armada against the Turk in the waters of Lepanto: still today, at noon each day, the bells ring in our cities to recall [the victory of] October 7, 1571... Let us pray for the United States of America; let us pray for our President; let us pray for his victory, that the Lord God of Hosts – Dominus Deus Sabaoth –will grant that he may know how to place himself under God’s protection." - Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò
Pray an Our Father now for the grace to know God's Will and to do it.
Pray an Our Father now for President Donald Trump, the legal teams including Sidney Powell and justice in the United States of America.
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Note: Please put your family, the United States of America, President Donald Trump and the Trump legal team as the intentions in the following Prayer of Command:
Prayer of Command
A Prayer for Deliverance Of President Donald Trump from Enemies
Based on A Psalm of David.
Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with President Donald Trump;
fight against those who fight against him!
Take hold of shield and buckler,
and rise for his help!
Draw the spear and javelin
against his pursuers!
Say to his soul,
“I am your deliverance!”
Let them be put to shame and dishonor
who seek after his life!
Let them be turned back and confounded
who devise evil against him!
Let them be like chaff before the wind,
with the angel of the Lord driving them on!
Let their way be dark and slippery,
with the angel of the Lord pursuing them!
For without cause they hid their net for him;
without cause they dug a pit[a] for his life.
Let ruin come upon them unawares!
And let the net which they hid ensnare them;
let them fall therein to ruin!
Then his soul shall rejoice in the Lord,
exulting in his deliverance.
All his bones shall say,
“O Lord, who is like thee,
thou who delivers the weak
from those who are too strong for him,
the weak and needy from him who despoils him?”
Malicious witnesses rise up;
they accuse him of things that he knows not.
They requite him evil for good.
But at his stumbling they gathered in glee,
they gathered together against him;
cripples whom he knew not
slandered him without ceasing;
they impiously mocked more and more,[c]
gnashing at him with their teeth.
How long, O Lord, wilt thou look on?
Rescue him from the ravages
from the lions!
Then I will thank thee in the great congregation;
in the mighty throng I will praise thee.
Let not those rejoice over him
who are wrongfully his foes,
and let not those wink the eye
who hate him without cause.
For they do not speak peace,
but against those who are quiet in the land
they conceive words of deceit.
They open wide their mouths against him;
they say, “Aha, Aha!
our eyes have seen it!”
Thou hast seen, O Lord; be not silent!
O Lord, be not far from him!
Bestir thyself, and awake for his right,
for his cause, my God and my Lord!
Vindicate him, O Lord, my God, according to thy righteousness;
and let them not rejoice over him!
Let them not say to themselves,
“Aha, we have our heart’s desire!”
Let them not say, “We have swallowed him up.”
Let them be put to shame and confusion altogether
who rejoice at his calamity!
Let them be clothed with shame and dishonor
who magnify themselves against him!
Let those who desire his vindication
shout for joy and be glad,
and say evermore,
“Great is the Lord,
who delights in the welfare of his servant!”
Then my tongue shall tell of thy righteousness
and of thy praise all the day long.
– Bishop Rene Henry Gracida
