(Jan. 22, 2021) — On Friday evening, this writer received a newsletter from her congressman, Rep. Joe Courtney of Connecticut’s second district, recounting the events of the week both in Washington and locally.
The newsletter begins:
This week I was in Washington to witness the transfer of power as Joseph R. Biden was sworn in to serve as the 46th President of the United States. The ceremonies looked a little different this year, but it was a reminder that nothing can stop our country from moving forward. Congratulations to President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
President Biden’s address was pitch perfect, and he acknowledged the monumental challenges that America still faces even as we embark on this new chapter—not only a pandemic and economic crisis, but also the challenges of division, mistrust, and a crisis of confidence in our ability to work together. President Biden told America on Wednesday that he’s ready to devote himself body and soul to serving our nation and healing our divisions, and it was a pledge that millions of Americans were grateful to hear. As always, I’m ready to keep working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to overcome this pandemic, to support struggling workers and families, and to do it by working together, united as fellow Americans.
Our response submitted through Courtney’s website reads as follows:
In reading your newsletter I noted that it says the “inauguration” took place Tuesday when it was Wednesday.
I agree that it was historic, but not in a positive way. Biden usurped the office of the presidency from the candidate who actually won, President Donald J. Trump. Had so many elections officials, governors and secretaries of state not ignored their own laws and accepted hundreds of thousands of late and unverified ballots, Trump would have easily won a second term.
Being an interloper, it is clear Biden has no support from the people, and Harris is not only widely disliked but also ineligible, as she is not a “natural born Citizen.”
While Donald Trump easily pulled in 50,000 people at his rallies, virtually no one showed up for Biden’s infrequent public appearances during his “campaign.” He is compromised by his 2014 quid pro quo in the Ukraine and involvement in his son’s outrageous overseas profiteering based on the family name and Biden’s then-position as putative vice president under his predecessor, another usurper known as “Barack Hussein Obama.”
Without at least conducting an examination of the Electoral College results to ensure that ballot counts were accurate and votes properly cast, no one can be certain that the election was fair; in fact, quite the contrary. I notice Biden never called for scrutiny. I believe he knew it was “fixed” from the outset, and on October 24 he admitted to having assembled “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”
Conducting a campaign from his basement with no agenda was no substitute for connecting directly with people. Perhaps he was restrained by the visuals of his inappropriate interactions with women and children over the years, his constant gaffes and obvious cognitive decline which render him unfit for the most demanding job in the world.
Congress has installed the wrong person and deprived the people of the president for whom they voted overwhelmingly. The ramifications of accepting a fraudulent result spell the death knell of a constitutional republic which supposedly exists “from the consent of the governed.” It has rather become an oligarchy which has abandoned all modicums of legality, and out of hate — something it outwardly preaches and legislates against — for a sitting president, who, by the way, led the greatest economic resurgence in our nation’s modern history, revitalized a flagging military, dealt decisively with threats from North Korea and China, including an election-year pandemic likely released as a biological weapon, and kept his promise to “Make America Great Again.”
Speaking of the military, how is it working out with the new “commander-in-chief” with National Guardsmen sleeping in a Washington, DC garage?
I would venture to say that most Americans have now divorced themselves completely from government, as every single institution meant to uphold individual rights, especially the right for each legal vote to be counted, failed us in the aftermath of the November 3, 2020 election. When judges’ personal opinions of a duly-elected president “trump” the Constitution and the law, our devolution into a banana republic is most complete.
