He let slip the real intention.
Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California appeared to let the cat out of the bag on Thursday with regard to why the National Guard is still in the country’s capital in large numbers more than three weeks after President Joe Biden’s inauguration.
In remarks during Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, Lieu appeared to imply that troops are still treating Washington, D.C., as an occupied military zone because the former president will not bend the knee and disavow his stance that the 2020 election was stolen from him.
To put it more simply, Lieu appeared to state that if Trump were to simply concede the election, all of those troops would go back to where they came from. Back to warm beds and away from freezing parking garages.
“[Trump] needed to unequivocally condemn the [Capitol] attack, but he also needed to mean those words,” said Lieu in front of the Senate.
“You saw Donald Trump tweet endless attacks, sometimes 108 tweets in a day, and in public speeches and across rallies, repeating words of ‘fight’ and ‘stop the steal’ and ‘never surrender.’”
……The Democrat then played up what he said was Trump’s ability to reach people.
Perhaps if Lieu possessed the ability to inspire others, he wouldn’t be relegated to being one of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s errand boys. In any event, that’s essentially what Lieu is — and he is working double-time to please the madame.
……Democrats such as Lieu keep using the word insurrection improperly. Perhaps they think if they portray the breach of the Capitol as a coup enough times, people will buy into what they’re selling. Coups, at least in the West, are not generally led by people dressed in horned hats.
But Lieu should keep his hyperbole if he believes it serves him. Apparently, it does.
“[Trump] does not say in that video, for example, ‘Everything I said in the months prior went too far.’ And he does not say the one sentence that matters. He does not say the one sentence that would stop future political violence,” the congressman continued dramatically.
“’The election was not stolen.’ He still hasn’t said that sentence,” Lieu said. “That is why National Guard troops in full body armor still patrol outside.”
What was that he just said? If Trump were to state, “The election was not stolen,” from his media and online exile, then Americans could again have access to the property of the people? That sounds an awful lot like extortion.
……Sun-baked Lieu might not know this, but political violence predated the era of Trump and it will exist long after we’re all dust in the wind. Lieu is also mistaken if he thinks American Soldiers signed up to, or are capable of, moderating free speech because that’s basically what he said on Thursday.
The election was stolen. Period. The vast majority of voters know it. The Dems engaged in some of the worst voter fraud and subversion in U.S. history. Even a third of Dems believe the election was illegitimate. The leftist cabal at Time Magazine bragged about it.
Aside from the ballot tampering, voter fraud, and “machine malfunctions”, the voting systems used for this election were flawed beyond belief. They allow authorized and unauthorized users to cancel votes, shift votes, preload votes, and vote blank ballots, all in real-time.
Over 75 million people voted for Trump against an addle-brained socialist who hid in his basement and could barely draw a crowd when he ventured out into daylight.
In swing states, President Trump had sizable leads on election night. Then, counting was stopped and election observers were ushered out. After that, huge, statistically impossible vote dumps occurred, giving Joe Biden the lead.
And we’re supposed to believe that the election was valid.
We will never accept the illegitimate election of Biden, nor will we stop fighting for justice. We will demand that the criminals who engaged in widespread voter fraud and ballot tampering be held accountable.
