Alamogordo Town News Conspiracy Buster Report: Trump isn’t returning to the White House in August nor Could He!
Former President Donald Trump has been telling people he thinks he'll return to the White House as the sitting president by August, the New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted on Tuesday. While supporters jump up and down with the idea and are holding on with baited breath the fact remains that cannot happen as there is no precedent in constitutional law to allow such an act to happen.
The United State Constitution clearly outlines the process for placing the man or woman into the White House. Rather one agrees or disagrees with the results of the electoral college on January 6th, 2021 the president is elected by the electoral college and not by popular vote and not by the will of the people.
The electoral college vote was certified by a bi-partisan senate on Jan 6th, 2021 and under the leadership of then Vice President Pence. As such that became the law of the land and for the next 4 years the Biden/Harris adminstration is who is leading the White House and has the power over the military and the oval office.
There is NO mechinism for the removal of them and the reinstatement in power of Trump/Pence. Anyone who thinks there is even a remote chance that can or will happen does not understand the rule of law, the power of the courts, the congress, the military and the power of the commitment to the United State Constitution by the institutions of government, period.
A percentage of the population may wish for a change in leadership, and well enough wish away and fight like hell for a change in the next general election but until then the fact remains Trump will not return to the White House this August or ANY August per the dictates of the constitution and the rule of law.
Talk of a Myanmar-style coup in the United States has been popular among some Trump supporters and QAnon believers for months but it cannot and is NOT going to happen.
The anticipation of a Trump reinstatement on a certain date could spread further among the most dedicated Trump supporters, but its NOT going to happen.
The calls to help overturn the 2020 election on January 6, for example, gained steam through a pro-Trump bus tour by a fringe group and led to the insurrection at the Capitol.
Mike Lindell of My Pillow misinformation, has said August is when he would go to the Supreme Court to present evidence he's acquired that would be so convincing that the justices would be forced to reject the 2020 election result.
Even if he were to file a case, the supreme court does not have the authority per the constitution to overturn the vote of the electoral college or the certification of said vote by congress. It is NOT going to happen per the articles of the constitution. Just as the right to bear arms and the right to free speech and freedom of and for religon is outlined in the constitution. So is the rules for the transition of power to the presidency and each elected senator and representative.
Note if the argument were to hold that the election were indeed rigged and Trumps votes were misguided and miscounted that would indeed impact the complete ballot from the voter. In that case the complete election of house members, senators and local elected officials on the same ballot would also have to be thrown out. That is NOT going to happen.
If you want change, knock off the conspiracy theories, get back into the reality and participate in the electorial process. Hold politicians accountable locally, at the state level and nationally by writing them, calling them and commenting on the official record. Facebook and social media posts are not official record. Use the official channels. Participate, vote!
