The American Whig party was formed in 1834 in opposition to President Andrew Jackson. They took their name from the British anti-monarchist party because they styled Jackson as “King Andrew the First.” The Whigs were a very powerful party during their short history. In contrast to the other party, the Democrats, the Whigs were anti-slavery. Not only were the Democrats pro-slavery, President Jackson owned 161 slaves.
The end for the party came when, in 1852, they nominated a very unpopular candidate, General Winfield Scott, and lost decisively, receiving only 42 electoral votes. The party never recovered and when they fielded their final candidate in 1856, they lost to Federalist Party candidate, James Buchanan.
The Whig party departed the scene of national politics and took their well deserved place in the dust bin of history.
Our highly controversial election in 2020 may well end with the same fate for the Old Guard Republicans. The Democrats and their allies in big tech and the main stream media, financed by billionaire oligarchs both in and out of America, are the authors of the voter fraud controversy and the fear of mob violence and the threat of personal retribution against anyone who might assist in discovering the truth about the election served to deny the Republican side any chance to air its concerns.
The clock ran out and Joe Biden will become President. That being said, the old guard Republicans will likely perish from a self-inflicted wound. The Supreme Court provided the weapon, VP Mike Pence loaded the weapon and pointed it at the collective head of the GOP and the Republican Senate pulled the trigger.
The consequences for failing to seek the truth rests squarely on the shoulders of the GOP. They acted as moral cowards, bowing to the mob rather than seeking to uphold the rule of law. Except for a mere handful of honest, brave men and women, the rest of those “Honorable Public Servants” do not deserve to hold their offices.
Under our system of justice the courts are the proper place to air grievances. By dismissing all cases, even those involving blatant disregard for the constitution, on procedural grounds, without examining a single shred of evidence, the courts, including the SCOTUS, violated their sacred oaths to uphold and defend the constitution and the rule of law.
By sealing the fate of Donald Trump’s attempts to shed light on the apparent theft of the presidency the Republican leadership failed to address the concerns of over 74 million voters, the very same voters that they depend on to remain in power.
Donald Trump started a movement. He is loved by millions of Americans and now the so called “Deep State,” aided by the Republican Party, have made him a martyr for his cause. The next election cycle will be open season on RINOs and the Old Guard Republicans will soon become roommates with the Whigs in that dust bin of history.
