(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Fox News host Mark Levin, a fiery conservative who isn’t afraid to tackle the tough subjects and speak his mind freely, went on a fiery tear on colleague Sean Hannity’s program, saying the Democrats relied on “non-legislature officers” in the key battleground states, going around GOP-controlled legislatures in order to implement a plethora of unconstitutional voting rule changes ahead of the election back in November of 2020.
According to BizPacReview, Levin kicked things off by saying that he firmly believes the 2020 election, which is still being contested in several states who sent competing slates of electors, is “worse than” the 1876 election, which also was highly contested before Rutherford B. Hayes was officially named the president by a panel that was made up of lawmakers and Supreme Court justices.
Levin really knows his stuff, doesn’t he? Maybe he ought to consider giving the presidency a go sometime? We could use a constitutionalist in the White House. If liberals were triggered by Trump, just imagine how much they’d totally hate Levin.
The conservative host went on to explain that only state legislatures, as stated in Article II of the Constitution, are allowed to make and change election laws. However, Democratic Party folks and lawyers have gotten around that requirement in key battleground states in the weeks and months that led up to the November 3 election by appealing to state courts and executive-branch officials in order to get certain rules changed.
“So what they did is they went into these states, all four of which have Republican legislatures, and they had to figure out how to get around those legislatures because of the Constitution,” Levin said.
“In … Pennsylvania, which has [a] Democrat governor, Democrat secretary of state, Democrat majorities of justices on the state Supreme Court, they used all of these non-legislature officers to change the laws in Pennsylvania to assist the Democrats,” he continued. “So the legislature was cut out.”
Levin then went on to say that “similar things” occurred in states like Georgia, which is a Republican controlled state. He said that in Georgia, the Democrats “went after the signature requirements” for mailing ballots.
Raffensperg, Georgia’s secretary of state, issued a decree as a response to a lawsuit which essentially “watered down” the requirement to a point that was useless.
Levin then held up a book that contains notes taken by Founding Father James Madison that was made during the constitutional convention debates of 1787, which explicitly details that state legislatures were given authority to choose presidential electors, not executives or courts.
“Yet in all four of those states,” Levin went on to explain, “the executives and the judiciary had more impact and more input into the election laws leading up to this election than the state legislatures did.”
“They were utterly cut out, so here we have a problem. We have a constitutional crisis that nobody wants to talk about,” Levin added.
“So now, what do we do? So these electors have been certified…who certified them? The very…officials who changed the laws in the first place,” he said. “Now we get to the joint session of Congress, which is also provided for in the Constitution, and we have, other than Ted Cruz and his group, Josh Hawley, gutless, feckless Republicans who are telling you, ‘Under the 12th Amendment we shall count the votes, I have no choice, I have to count the votes.’
“Really?” the Fox News host asked. “Let me be utterly clear about this. The framers of the Constitution weren’t stupid. The framers of the 12th Amendment weren’t stupid. Do you think for a minute they would say that Congress should count votes that are unconstitutional? They assumed that the votes would be lawful. They assumed that the states would follow the legislative process that they put in the Constitution.”
This is why it is so critical for the Constitution to be taught to our children in school. And if they aren’t teaching it, and I can almost guarantee they aren’t, then we as parents need to ensure that we teach it to our kids so that they will know when their rights are being violated and what they can use to hold the government accountable for their overreach.
Lack of knowledge will destroy our nation. So will suppression of that knowledge. And that’s what the radical left is attempting to do. Suppress the truth and prevent people from recognizing that what they are up to is criminal behavior.
