Congressman Cline: On Dec. 30, I received a response to my letter about Texas v. Pennsylvania decrying your support of that baseless lawsuit. If the mail-in voting laws were illegal and unconstitutional, why did you not raise objections when they were originally passed under a GOP majority?

The answer is simple: You're only raising objections now because the opposing party won. You've also stated the objections raised during the 2017 certification process support your current actions. This is a false equivalency. 2017 was supported by concrete intelligence, whereas the Trump administration has now lost 60 lawsuits. And in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 siege on the Capitol, you tweeted "Violence is never the answer, and I condemn their actions in the strongest possible terms."

Congressman, this is true but tell the whole truth. Admit you helped incite this violence. Atone your mistake by building up our country instead of your career.

Cheerleaders, As you people used to say, Elections have Consequences. If you eat more cheese, it may soothe your WHINE!!

I think another reason the establishment intends to destroy Mr. Trump and the Trump family when he leaves office is because they realize, freed from the constraints of public office, the gloves will come off, leaving him in position to do some major apple cart flipping. I think what the RNC fears most is the idea of Mr. Trump becoming a “king maker” in the primaries. Dude! [scared][cool]

bknjholl

Donald, your premise is incorrect. Mr. Trump is destroying himself.

Here for your enjoyment are more rant-a-thons invented by Bishopsboy and subserviently approved by Prodigal. When Bishopsboy disagrees with someone, it's time to bring out all the Boogeymen from the closet and under the bed, to find bigger and badder adjectives to apply to Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats, to paint lurid pictures of a dire future. Because, folks, that's all he has. He can list what he calls crimes one after another, but each has been found untrue by study after study. He must really be in a snit now, because he brought out his favorite word, "hypocrite." Then along comes the prodigal Sancho Panza to jump up and down and scream "I agree," "I agree." I don't think Bishop is gaining a lot of supporters with his act. Perhaps he should try calm reason and proven facts .. as in real facts ... as in widely accepted, documented occurrences that are not the product of web postings from someone's basement. Enough!

sbsheridan

OOOOOPS ... Just change all references to Bishopsboy in the above letter into references to Billnonymous. It's sooo hard to tell them apart.

bishopsboy

Dearest Susan, I don’t know about billy but I consider the comparison quite a compliment. Thank you!

prodigalson

As always Mufalme Bishopsboy, my Royal Zambian Brother, I agree with you 100%.

bishopsboy

Thank you, Prince Prodigal, my royal Saudi brother. It is indeed ironic and quite humorous that Left wingnut attempts to insult conservatives always backfire. Susan and Harvey haven't yet figured that out nor do they understand how silly it makes them appear to everyone else who lives inside reality.

bknjholl

Just two things. She's not insulting conservatives, she's insulting radicals. And of course folks that don't share radical views look silly to those who don't.

bknjholl

Dang... make that ... look silly to those who do. My bad.

You act so superior to everyone that fails to conform to or promote your liberal socialist agenda for this country. You and your mindless followers are cancerous and your Democrat operatives likely encouraged many election heads to destroy election integrity by several nefarious ways including flooding of ballots that cannot be proven to be legitimately cast. There was no concern at all for secure safeguards, proper legal and local procedures were discarded and slip-shod shenanigans prevailed that by anyone’s standards should have been investigated immediately when revealed or alleged.

prodigalson

Great post Newshound. Spot on.

LVW

prod: Unproven allegations agains Dems are "spot on"? Please.

Driller

sbsheridan, I've called out Satan for months and he has lied and deflected about what Con Don has been doing. They have no evidence of what they are claiming and only WHINE. Does this look familiar? Great post, my wise American woman. I agree with you 100% That nasty "ole" Driller is posting under someone elses' name, again. HE! HE! HE!

Driller

Unhinged Want to be Comrade Bill, Again we missed you and your unhinged name calling posts Seems like you have taken a week or two between rants. Hope you haven't been sick!

bknjholl

More to the point, Mr. Cline, why did you wait for more than a full year after Pennsylvania's Act 77 of 2019 was passed? Even more to the point, why did you wait until a national election had taken place before publicizing your complaint by signing on to the lawsuit in question? It certainly looks like all of this concern didn't happen until Mr. Trump lost the election he thought he would win.

To the thread: None of the lawyers for any of the lawsuits actually claimed election fraud. When in court, they could only complain about "technical irregularities." Of course, the lawsuits were dismissed. It turns out that these irregularities were normal and legal procedures in how various localities ran the election. None of these complaints about irregularities have brought proof enough to elevate them to the status of illegality.

newshound

I applaud Congressman Cline for identifying the obvious and blatant disregard by DEMOCRATS and their dutiful minions in 6 or 7 states’ metro areas for election integrity. Set procedures to maintain quality control as well as the outcome confidence of the elections were deliberately trashed and burned by DEMOCRATS. Why??

There has been NO true investigation done on the HUNDREDS of improprieties charged and just swept under the rug by the unconcerned including feckless judges. Well, I am concerned because if it looks like and smells like possible fraud...there’s a decent chance it is fraud.

The PA voting "laws" were not "passed" under a GOP majority. The PA GOP led state legislature was completely, and illegally, bypassed by their liberal PA governor, who took it upon himself to create extremely lax voting laws where he had NO constitutional authority to create them, and the even more liberal PA Supreme Court decided the governor does have a right to completely bypass the state legislature and create and pass his very own laws. Laws that, among other things, allowed ballots to be mailed, received and counted long after Election Day had ended. It was not Election Day in PA, it was "Election Period" where ballots were "legally" received and counted until they had the total they wanted, then they ended their "Election Period". Corruption to the core. They threw out Republican poll watchers and boarded up the windows so no one could see what they were doing. These are not things that people who have nothing to hide do, it's what people who are doing illegal things do.

Secondly, these liberal calls for things like admitting "inciting violence", like Mr. Dowdy here, are simply laughable! Trump never mentioned one word that incited violence, his words were, literally, “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” Yet, Mr. Dowdy never once chided Democrat Pelosi for suggesting that there should be more civil unrest or Democrat Pressley insisting that there needs to be “unrest in the streets” or the Democrat state Senator in Michigan who suggested American “soldiers” find Trump supporters and “make them pay.” Or Maxine Waters telling liberals to follow Trump supporters around, then “form a crowd,” “get in their face” and let them know that they “aren’t welcome anywhere.” Or Kamala Harris supporting the violence in Portland and Seattle and telling reporters the riots shouldn’t end and “won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.” Or Eric Holder’s calls for violence, or Hillary Clinton’s calls for violence. Never once did liberals complain about rhetoric like that, instead responding with cheers and applause and praise. Yet now they are crying their hypocritical little eyes out over such language that never was uttered? Who do these pathetic hypocrites think they’re kidding?

LVW

Federalism, the latest conservative principle to be jettisoned by the zombies in order to satisfy Il Trumpino. Talk about hypocrisy.

bishopsboy

Democrat hypocrisy and double standards continue unabated....

prodigalson

I agree with you Bishop. If not for double standards, Demokkkrats would have no standards at all. I'm proud of the principled stand that Ben Cline took, and will continue to support him in the future.

billnonymous

If liberals didn't have double standards they would have no standards. They spew violent rhetoric to their heart's content with nothing but praise from the fake news media and their supporters. Yesterday, Louie Gohmert, on the House floor, repeated, verbatim, **Nancy Pelosi's** words: “I just don’t know why there aren’t more uprisings all over the country and maybe there will be.” Liberals, like the brainwashed fools they are, flooded social media with calls for Gohmert’s immediate removal from Congress and charges for inciting more riots. Then when the fools eventually found out it was actually Nancy Pelosi who said those words and that Gohmert was simply reminding the liberals of Pelosi's incitful words, they all suddenly had absolutely no problem with what she said. Did they suggest Pelosi be removed from Congress and face sedition charges? Of course not! Pathetic, shameless hypocrites to their vile, empty cores.

Driller

Unhinged Want to be Comrade Bill, You and the cheerleaders can cry, whine and eat cheese all you want, but the fact is Con Don was impeached again and this time the Republicans helped. Quit whining and telling us your facts. If you and the cheerleaders had any evidence, why didn't you show it to Con Don's lawyers?

billnonymous

Putin and Chi-communist boot licking Doofus, who cares? Impeachment is nothing more than saying "I accuse" that's it. Let’s see your reaction when Joe Biden is impeached repeatedly by Republicans. For the next 4 years, you clown liberals will be reaping what you have sown and you will have no one to blame but yourselves. How many times did you condemn the violent rhetoric of the left? Zero, hypocrite. I don’t need evidence of what I claimed because it actually happened. You can’t deny what I stated, even on your best day, a day that has long passed you by. You simpleton clowns again will reap what you have sown when, in 2024, the Republican candidate gains 100,000,000 votes through massive mail in ballots. Remember then that you had no problem with it now. We all know you were one of the braindead clowns who called for Gohmert to be thrown out of Congress and arrested for repeating what Nancy Pelosi said, but had the complete opposite reaction when you found out it was Gohmert quoting Nancy Pelosi. Hypocrite clown.

newshound

Impeachment is just a political tool and gives irrational, unhinged screwballs like Pelosi and her handmaidens a needed high!

prodigalson

I agree with you Billy. Demokkkrats are pure evil.

Driller

prod. On Jan. 6 , we saw who the evil party was, rioting, looting, over running the cops and killing cops, all with Con Don flags and red MAGA hats on. They even shouted they wanted to hang the Republican Vice President. Is this not a great example of evil? 9/11 was also a great example of Saudi evil. Be safe my evil Saudi, brother.
