GOP Rep. Gohmert Says Violence Is Only Recourse After Election Lawsuit Dismissal
'Basically in effect the ruling would be that you gotta go to the streets and be as violence as Antifa and BLM,' Gohmert said.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



After a federal judge dismissed his lawsuit Friday seeking to empower Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the election in President Donald Trump's favor, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) suggested the ruling means street violence is the only option for Trump supporters who believe the president's baseless voter fraud claims.

Louie Gohmert,[+][-] R-Texas, and members of the House Freedom Caucus conduct a news conference to call on Attorney General William Barr to release findings of an investigation into allegations of 2020 election fraud, outside the Capitol on Thursday, December 3, 2020.

Key Facts


Gohmert and several other Republicans sued Pence on Monday in an effort to grant him the authority to count Trump electors in key states won by President-elect Joe Biden during a joint session of Congress on Jan. 6 to certify the Electoral College results.

Trump-appointed federal judge Jeremy Kernodle dismissed the case, writing the plaintiffs "lack standing."

Gohmert hit back at the ruling during a Newsmax appearance later Friday, calling the Electoral Count Act - which gives the vice president only a procedural role in counting electors - unconstitutional and stating "if I don't have standing to [challenge] that, nobody does."

"Basically, in effect, the ruling would be you've got to go to the streets and be as violent as Antifa and BLM," Gohmert added before being cut off by Newsmax host Emerald Robinson.

The comment came as pro-Trump attorney Lin Wood predicted Pence will "face execution by firing squad" for refusing to overturn the election - a comment that prompted even the Trump legal team to distance itself from Wood.

Key Background


Trump surrogates have come under fire a number of times in recent months for promoting violence against the president's detractors. Most notably, former U.S. cybersecurity chief Chris Krebs sued Trump campaign attorney Joe DiGenova for advocating Krebs' execution for debunking Trump's fraud claims.

Chief Critic


Attorneys for Pence responded to the lawsuit on Friday by asking the judge to dismiss the case, arguing "these plaintiffs' suit is not a proper vehicle for addressing those issues because plaintiffs have sued the wrong defendant." The response also noted that, with the lawsuit, Gohmert was asking the court to strip him of his ability to object to the results as a House member.

Big Number


140. That's the minimum number of House Republicans expected to object to certification of the Electoral College results. Additionally, around a dozen Republican senators are considering joining Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) in objecting, according to CBS News. Given that majorities in both chambers of Congress are needed to sustain an objection, the effort is unlikely to do more than delay the inevitable result.

What To Watch For


Gohmert said his attorneys are preparing an appeal to the fifth circuit court of appeals, which he said has "incredible judges" and might be expected to issue a more favorable ruling despite the overwhelming failure of pro-Trump election lawsuits. But with just four days until Congress is set to certify the Electoral College vote, Gohmert's prospects for success are unlikely.

Interesting comparison. 

From Britannica :

SA , abbreviation of Sturmabteilung (German: “Assault Division”) , byname Storm Troopers or Brownshirts , German Sturmtruppen or Braunhemden , in the German Nazi Party , a paramilitary organization whose methods of violent intimidation played a key role in Adolf Hitler ’s rise to power.

The SA was founded in Munich by Hitler in 1921 out of various roughneck elements that had attached themselves to the fledgling Nazi movement. It drew its early membership largely from the Freikorps (Free Corps), armed freebooter groups, made up largely of ex-soldiers, that battled leftists in the streets in the early days of the Weimar Republic . Outfitted in brown uniforms after the fashion of Benito Mussolini ’s Fascist Blackshirts in Italy, the SA men protected party meetings, marched in Nazi rallies, and physically assaulted political opponents. Temporarily in disarray after the failure of Hitler’s Munich Putsch in 1923, the SA was reorganized in 1925 and soon resumed its violent ways, intimidating voters in national and local elections. From January 1931 it was headed by Ernst Röhm , who harboured radical anticapitalist notions and dreamed of building the SA into Germany’s main military force. Under Röhm SA membership, swelled from the ranks of the Great Depression’s unemployed, grew to 400,000 by 1932 and to perhaps 2,000,000—20 times the size of the regular army—by the time that Hitler came to power in 1933.

During the early days of the Nazi regime, the SA carried out unchecked street violence against Jews and Nazi opponents. But it was eyed with suspicion by the regular army and by the wealthy industrialists, two groups whose support Hitler was trying to secure. Against Hitler’s expressed wishes, Röhm continued to press for a “second Nazi revolution” of a socialist character, and he hoped to merge the regular army with the SA under his own leadership. On June 30, 1934, the Night of the Long Knives ( die Nacht der langen Messer ), Hitler, using SS forces, carried out a “Blood Purge” of the SA leadership. Röhm and dozens of SA leaders were summarily executed. Thereafter the SA, reduced in strength, continued to exist but ceased to play a major political role in Nazi affairs. From 1939 it was in charge of training all able-bodied men for Home Guard units.

The Brownshirts seemed a lot more organized than these folk:

#BlackLivesMatter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Inc. is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives.

and probably looked and acted a lot more like these folk:

They are Socialists with a capital "S".  They have not and never will be conservatives. The left disowned them, and using Goebbel's "repeat a lie often enough and people will believe it" pushed them onto the right.

BLM and Antifa use the same tactics as the Brown Shirts. They try to silence dissenting opinions throw intimidation and violence. Their tactics have been whole heartedly excused and supported by Democrats, the media shills with their "mostly peaceful protesters" BS, and the lemming Democratic followers.

Now when are you going to reign in your leftist Brown Shirts?

Testy. You must have confused me with somebody who gives a shit for any party.

I observe. I comment. I think that all political parties should be abandoned because of what I have observed. If I had the slightest control over either mentioned group, I would tell the members with violent tendencies to go home and stay there. 

The BLM movement has been tainted not from within but from without, with the complicity of the right-leaning media who, instead of reporting factual data like the thousands upon thousands of BLM protests that were carried out peacefully by millions of participants in nations all over the world, focused on the few instances where violence broke out. This tactic is known as telling a half truth, or a whole lie . This tactic, otherwise known as propagandizing, is also factually incorrect and/or incomplete, is unethical and, IMO, pretty much stupid, as is the president and anyone who keeps repeating the same old, tired mantra of lies. I recognize that there are also variants of this same type of behavior on the left leaning side of the media, and condemn these also. 

Antifa wasn't much of a presence until Trump and friends started blaming things on them. Indeed, a lot of the so called antifa actions this summer were caused by paranoia, in that there was no actual action by antifa, but the response turned out by the rumors of action. As far as I am concerned, the Alt-right movement gave birth to the American version of antifa as a direct outgrowth of their views after the insemination provided by Trump's tweet-storms. Any violent actions by any protest group are not in the best interests of the group. (Unless they are pro-Trump and then they get a free pass and a Presidential Medal of Poo-poo Freedom.) 

Now you want to get into a pissing match?

I have no interest. Sounds messy and stupid.

Check out the Nazi web site and tell us all a single economic policy that any conservative would ever support? 

Why?

Because there are certain parallels that exist between what happened in 1920's and 30's Germany and the increasingly polarized, politicised and propagandized atmosphere of the current time does not mean that we are heading toward Naziism. That was something peculiar to it's own time and the comparison between either the former or current versions is a non-sequitur. Fascism we definitely need to be aware of and beware of.

BLM and Antifa use the same tactics as the Brown Shirts. They try to silence dissenting opinions throw intimidation and violence. 

No. You are conflating groups whose methods are different. BLM tries to change people's attitudes through protest, education and achieving critical mass socially. The Brownshirts tried to silence opposition by beating and killing it out of people. Antifa almost seems like a revenger of the nerds group. IDK, there may be more organization to them, but it is difficult to tell.

Now when are you going to reign in your leftist Brown Shirts?

I love it. This morning I was given extraordinary powers to reach out and touch someone else's computer, and now I have been granted control of two groups of people, neither of which I belong to, by someone else who belongs to neither. 

I am having a wonderful day!

Makes me wonder what other godlike qualities will be granted me by impotent designers.

So...  It's treason then.  The taking up of arms against a democratically elected government.  Biden won the popular vote.  The elections were certified by all of the state Governors and Secretaries of State, the electoral college voted giving Biden the necessary votes, and over 60 lawsuits resolved in the courts or dismissed for lack of evidence.  If there is election fraud I want it prosecuted to the full extent of the law.  Bring evidence though or stfu.

Just like election fraud needs to be aggressively prosecuted, armed insurrection and treason need to be just as aggressively prosecuted.  On Jan 20, Biden will be sworn in.  Any insurrection designed to put somebody else in power at that point is treason.  Additionally, armed insurrection aimed at preventing him from being sworn in as President is also treason.

Sell more guns!

Don't you already know that the NRA doesn't sell guns?

Yes but power comes from people, and the more people have guns the more power the NRA will have.

Not necessarily, Buzz.  I'd say that most gun owners are not members of the NRA.  Many are, but many avid sportsman disagree with the NRA's extreme views.

Sorry, Buzz, I missed reading that.  The NRA has had a tough couple of years , although I'm sure that story got pushed down the page by the bazillion other scandals that were going on at the same time.

No reason to be sorry - it was a comment on a different article, and in reply to Texas1211 admitting that he was right.

So you admit that the NRA comment was ludicrous at best, and downright wrong?

I know a LOT of people who have guns and NONE of them are members of the NRA. In fact, I met a couple of them at the range and we talked about the 'private' range close to my house that NONE  of us will go to because they require NRA membership.

Do you have some kind of guilt feeling that you had to make that comment?  If I had meant YOU had that fear I would have said it differently - OBVIOUSLY when I said "someone" I meant someone else.

when you address a post directly to me, and me and you were not talking about China. then, YEAH, I will call you out on it.

easy solution is not to talk to me about what others say.

An even EASIER solution is for us not to talk to each other at all. You have made me sorry I went so far as to agree with you on that other article.  That teaches ME a lesson to not be reasonable.

There's also already here! (But shortly after you meet one they disappear again! jrSmiley_9_smiley_image.gif )

List of U.S. cities with significant Chinese-American populations

According to the 2012 Census estimates,[7] the three metropolitan areas with the largest Chinese-American populations were the Greater New York Combined Statistical Area at 735,019 people, the San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland Combined Statistical Area at 629,243 people, and the Greater Los Angeles Combined Statistical Area at about 566,968 people.

In the post-1965 era, first- and second-generation immigrants include those from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan. Also included in the Chinese-American population enumeration are ethnic Chinese from Malaysia and Vietnam who might identify themselves as Chinese, thus skewing the census reporting.

None from Cuba?

I have no idea of how many members they have. My point is that owning a gun doesn't mean that you're an NRA supporter. The NRA lost it's way and mostly represents the manufacturers.

Very good--I DID write that in response to YOUR words in post 10.1.1:

Actually, you're right.  It's the gun manufacturers and retailers that are going to love it, but because I expect a lot more people are going to buy guns many might join the NRA, and the more support it has, the more powerful it becomes, so they too will most likely benefit.

See what I did there?

I responded to what you wrote. I didn't invent something I thought you meant. and I didn't put words in your mouth.  

See, I addressed the person commenting to me and made a comment on what you said.

Problem?

INALB I would imagine there's a good chance that phone call may result in that happening.

But it may take a while-- after all there will be a lot more changes against Dear Leader after he loses the protection of the Presidency!!!

(Apparently several prominent lawyers representing The Southern District of NY are salivating at that prospect-- have spent considerable time in researching and preparing necessary documents, locating witnesses To Trump's numerous crimes-- and are just waiting to pounce! jrSmiley_4_smiley_image.png )

After Trump is no longer president and no longer has his office to protect him... I wonder if they will put him in the same cell as Gohmert? Trump would drive Gohmert crazy-- err, I mean crazier than he already is! 

And versa-vice!!!
