Democrats are in a pickle as we approach the November elections.
They are well aware they are quite likely to be brutally defeated in the midterms. However, it is highly merited, in light of their heinous policies and Biden’s heinous performance.
As a result, they do not have an abundance of alternatives. They’re playing the gerrymandering game intending to steal some seats.
They’re going to exploit the January 6 committee to the fullest extent possible with the goal of unearthing anything to smear Republicans, such as the recording of Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
Democrats also attempt to disqualify certain Republicans by charging them with being “insurrectionists” and launching lawsuits to have them removed from the ballot.
The irony is they say Republicans were responsible for efforts to sabotage the election.
Yet, it is Democrats who are attempting to keep Republicans off the list in order to prevent Americans from voting for them. What a case of losing the plot!

The petitioners in the case are attempting to use Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. This prevents elected representatives from engaging in uprisings or rebellion.
They want to use this to remove Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), and state Rep. Mark Finchem (who is running for Secretary of State) from the Arizona ballot.
Except for one flaw in the argument, none of the three was part of the January 6 incident, which Democrats have attempted to characterize as an uprising.
Plaintiffs attempted to establish their involvement in the January 6 demonstration.
However, the march and the riot are distinct events.
Gosar and Biggs did vote against accepting the electoral votes from some states, much like many Democrats have done in the aftermath of previous presidential elections.
That is not an “insurrection.” Accepting the count is part of their authority as members of Congress (or not).
When Democrats did it, they said it was to preserve democracy; when Republicans did it, they claimed it was an attack on democracy. What cynicism!
However, the attempt to keep Republicans out failed; an Arizona judge ruled they had a private right of action.
Coury said that Finchem, Biggs, and Gosar had not been “charged with or convicted of any state or federal insurrection or rebellion-related felony.”
Both Biggs and Gosar said only Congress could legally decide whether a member is qualified. Coury thought this was a strong argument.
“It would be contrary to the plain text of the United States Constitution for this court to undertake any trial about a member of Congress’ credentials,” Coury said in his conclusion.
“Moreover, a state court proceeding involving the credentials of Rep. Biggs and Rep. Gosar probably violates the federalism and division of powers theories.”
Additionally, a lawsuit is pending against Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
Now, the lawsuit should have been dismissed for the same reasons. Rep. Madison Cawthorn’s (R-NC) comparable lawsuit was dismissed.
Anyone attempting to shut out the GOP in this manner does not believe in letting voters decide for themselves. They attempt to obstruct the people’s choice, while hypocritically claiming to safeguard it.
