Georgia officials rejected President Donald Trump’s effort to pressure them to reverse the state’s election result, a day after he repeated claims of voting fraud and berated the Republican governor and secretary of state.
Trump has suggested calling a special session of the Georgia legislature to consider overturning President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the state, a move that Gov. Brian Kemp isn’t planning to make, Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan said on Sunday.
Calling the special session would be “a solution trying to find a problem,” Duncan, also a Republican, said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “And we’re certainly not going to move the goalposts at this point in the election.”
Holding the session would lead the state down the path of “nullifying the will of people,” said GOP Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on ABC’s “This Week.”
The officials spoke out after Trump held a Saturday rally in Valdosta, Georgia, in which he took aim at Kemp and Raffensperger for not doing more to help throw out Biden’s victory. The president repeated unsubstantiated and outlandish claims that there was a multistate conspiracy by Democrats to cheat in the Nov. 3 election.
The stated purpose of Trump’s rally had been to urge support for two GOP senators facing re-election in contests that will determine control of the upper chamber. But influential Republicans in the state have expressed concern that Trump’s relentless attacks on the election could backfire, hurting GOP Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, who face Jan. 5 run-offs against Democratic challengers.
At the rally, Trump called on his supporters to vote for the two GOP senators even while insisting the Nov. 3 election was corrupt. He even told them to request absentee ballots, a form of voting the president has repeatedly said corrupted the result of his contest with Biden.
Gabriel Sterling, a Republican who’s the state’s voting system manager, said he’s concerned that Trump’s stance could cost Loeffler and Perdue their Senate seats.
“It’s mixed messaging,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. “It’s confusing and if you’re telling people don’t trust the election system, why would they bother to show up?”
So, Georgia is run by a bunch of Vichy Republicans doing the Democrats’ dirty work for them.
I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you.
If those listed in the above article were Conservative Republicans, they would not be standing up against President Trump on the Liberal Sunday Morning Talk Shows of the Main Stream Media.
They would have sense enough to be able to observe all of the backlash against the Fox News Channel and all of the other Vichy Republicans who have cove out against the President and his team’s efforts to #StopTheSteal and preserve the rights of those American citizens who legally voted.
Instead, Kemp and company are behaving like Stacey Abrams’ lap dogs.
They must have taken Mitt Romney’s Video Training Seminar “How to Be Democrat in Republican’s Clothing”.
I always wonder how sell-outs like these disgraces to the South look at themselves in the mirror.
Then I say to myself,
Self, they’re not looking the mirror. They’re too busy counting all of money that the Democrats are paying them under the table to betray those who trusted them.
Just like the Fox News Channel has.
But, I digress…
These Vichy Republicans in Georgia are just like the underachieving employee who sucks up to the Personnel Director or upper management of a company in order to move up to a better paying position without actually doing anything.
Dr. Laurence J. Peter wrote in his 1968 Best Seller “The Peter Principle”, that
You will see that in every hierarchy the cream rises until it sours.” (Italics are his.)
Gov. Kemp and his merry band of Vichy Republicans have gone about as far as they are going to rise in politics.
Because this cream of the crop certainly has soured.
Until He Comes,
