the January 6 Turnaround
This is a sign for those who haven’t bothered to give attention to our Congress’ uncovering of the January-2021 attempt to overthrow our government.
Just so you’ll know. Don’t say I didn’t tell you.
According to testimony spoken yesterday, Thursday June 16, by Mr. Greg Jacob, Mike Pence’s lawyer, to our Congressional committee:
Our Vice President at that time, Mike Pence, was performing his Constitutional duty as President of the US Senate. His main duty on January 6 2021 was to supervise the counting of Electoral votes that had been delivered by the 50 State Legislatures to our Congress.
President Trump, assisted by Mr. John Eastman and other alleged conspirators, had devised a plan to convince Mike Pence to take it upon himself to reject some of the Electors who had been appointed by voters and officially certified by State Legislatures as Electors to elect the next President, either Donald Trump or Joseph Biden.
Mr. Greg Jacob, our Vice President’s lawyer, explained yesterday, June 16, 2022 that the Trumpian plan consisted of two possible ways that Mike Pence could reject certain Electors who had been directed by the people of their respective states to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris instead of Donald Trump and Mike Pence.
One plan was for Vice President Mike to simply take it upon himself to reject some of the duly-selected Electors and simply declare thereby that Trump and himself would be the winners of the 2020 election. This tactic is called the “plenary theory” of Vice Presidential authority.
The other Trump plan was for Vice President to use the Electoral Act of 1887 as a supposedly legal basis to reject the duly-appointed Electors Republican legislators in certain battleground states. Instead of receiving those Electors, certain Republicans would appoint themselves as Electors.
It was a “coup in search of a legal theory.”
In a meeting with Trump on January 4, 2021, Mike Pence refused Donald Trump’s attempts to make him use this plan. As Mr. Jacob testified yesterday, Mike Pence “never wavered” from his resolve to do his Constitutional duty.
Even so, on that day and the next day, January 5, Trump did not relent on his effort to persuade and intimidate Mike Pence into stealing the election from us, the American people.
Mr. Jacob testified yesterday that the last Trump/Pence conversation about this disagreement took place on January 5 at 2:44 pm. Trump’s attempt to persuade his VP to do the wrong thing had failed.
From that time on, as everybody knows, Trump spoke publicly to his gathering hordes of proud boys and oathkeepers and other f-swearing rioters, insisting that he would not like Pence any more if Pence did not buckle under to his plan to overthrow the government of our United States.
So big deal. Donald doesn’t like me any more. What else is new?
At 2:13 pm, January 6, those violent rioters broke into the Capitol and attempted to prevent our Senators and Representatives from performing their duty to accept the decisions of the States to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
The law-hating mob were also chanting “Hang Mike Pence” while some person or two among them erected a gallows with a noose by which they would hang Pence if they got half a chance.
During that time, Trump was declaring that Pence did not have the courage to do what Donald had wanted him to do.
But in fact, Mike Pence had risked his life to do the right thing. He had, in fact, performed his duty as Vice President of the United States.
His courage is, in fact, worthy of our respect. That is why I am recalling to you what I saw in House Select Committee video yesterday.
During that riotous Jan6 insurrection, the Secret Service protectors scuttled Pence and others with him to a secure underground location. While they were down there, his protectors offered to deliver him away from the Capitol complex to an even safer location. They wanted to drive him away from the place where he had a sacred duty to perform.
But Mike Pence declined their offer. He was determined to do his duty. As far as he was concerned, it was not only a Constitutional duty, but a sacred duty laid upon him by the Lord whose purposes he had always strived to fulfill. Mike Pence is a believer, not a puppet.
They stayed in that safe place for the next 4 1/2 hours.
Here’s a note for all ye Dems out there who think that Trump and his legions of lawbreakers have some kind of hold on Bible-thumping Christians.
Greg Jacob, friend and Counsel to Mike Pence in that safe underground location, testifies how his faith in God sustained his, and Mike Pence’s, understanding of the spiritual, political and cultural warfare that had happened that fateful day, January 6, 2021. While reading his Bible there, in that secure location beneath the Capitol, Greg Jacob explained:
“Daniel 6 is where I went . . . Daniel has (had) become the second-in-command of Babylon, a pagan nation, but he completely, faithfully serves. He refuses any order from the king that he cannot follow, and he does his duty, consistent with his oath to God. I felt that that was what had played out, that day.”
A few minutes later in the June 16 hearings, the House Select Committee showed a clip in which Marc Short, Pence’s Chief of Staff, had testified that later . . . “At 3:50 in the morning, when we finally headed our ways, I remember texting the Vice President a verse from the biblical 2nd Timothy letter chapter 4, verse 7:
“I have fought the good fight; I have finished the course; I have kept the faith.”
And that, my fellow Americans, is what Vice President Mike Pence had done in order to deliver our democratic republic from lawless tyranny on January 6, 2021.
Thus we see that the trump conspiracy has not taken control of so-called evangelical christianity, but that Mike Pence’s Christian conscience compelled his resolve to do the right thing on January 6, 2021. His courage and patiently resolute action delivered us from anarchy, confusion and destructive treason.
You can thank God for deliverance. God bless America.
