‘Fictional Republicanism’

“Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.”

“Former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman told a group of  Republicans this month that a revolution against government officials over the 2020 election has become necessary but said people have become too comfortable to water the “tree of liberty” with blood.”  

“A US judge reviewing records seized from Donald Trump’s Florida home asked the former president’s lawyers on Thursday to provide any evidence casting doubt on the integrity of the documents. Trump has previously made unsubstantiated claims the documents were planted by FBI agents.”

On this day, I rename the Republican Party founded by my kin, John Fremont…

FICTIONAL REPUBLICANISM

I will not list all the Lies and Fictional claims Republicans have made in the last ten years. All I need do is insist the Republican Party PROVE the Democrats have carried out the most massive Crime and Cover-up in the annals of White History, by allegedly stealing the election from Donald Trump.

This alleged crime – is the Republican Platform this coming election. These Organized Deceivers and Authors of Pure Fiction, use our Sexual Being as a smoke screen, and, an excuse not to offer – ANY PROOF! This replicates the Abusive Church of old, that did not allow church-goers to read the Bible, lest they – SEE TRUTHS THAT WERE KEPT FROM THEM!

Senior federal judge Raymond Dearie drew a line in the sand when he DEMANDED PROOF the Rightful President of the United States was not MAKING MORE FICTION when he highly suggested the FBI planted Top Secret documents at his home. Mere Citizen, Donald Trump, made more FICTION when he highly suggested the FBI was looking for Hilary Clinton’s e-mails. Is there any evidence of this? How about THE PURE FICTION that allows Trump to declassify Top Secret material – WITH HIS THOUGHTS! Are these REAL thoughts, or, FICTIONAL thoughts? What is TRULY frightening, most Republicans – DONT CARE ABOUT – Republican Fiction Making. The only good words, are WORDS that hurt, even destroy millions of Democrats. All words have been weaponized, and are no longer used to get to THE TRUTH. Does Jesus agree with this?

Owning no REAL TRUTHS, the Republicans will resort to SEX-SHAMING to get votes. All Democrats want anal sex – and a sex-change! All Democrats want to get into the sex-trade of children. All Democrats want to murder the un-born. All Democrats want to steal more elections from Republicans. Do you see – THE TRUE MEANING OF

“Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.”

“Commitment to the Big Lie transforms all our lies into reality.”

I have devised a simple Fiction Detection Test. Show all Republicans Candidates the two photographs above, and ask..

“Why would a peaceful demonstrator be carrying plastic ties and wearing a ammunition vest?”

“Do you subscribe to the QAnon Fiction?”

“Do you believe the leaders of the Democrats stole the election, and, are the biggest liars in human history?”

” Do you believe former Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman has accurately assessed the Democratic Crisis our Nation is in, and, his solution is the – ONLY SOLUTION?”

“Do you believe Republicans are the source of most of our Nation’s Problems?”

A US judge reviewing records seized from Donald Trump’s Florida home asked the former president’s lawyers on Thursday to provide any evidence casting doubt on the integrity of the documents. Trump has previously made unsubstantiated claims the documents were planted by FBI agents.

Senior federal judge Raymond Dearie, appointed by another judge to vet the documents to assess whether some should be withheld from investigators as privileged, also asked the justice department to certify by Monday a detailed property inventory of materials the FBI seized in the court-approved 8 August search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach, Florida.

Dearie asked Trump’s lawyers to submit by 30 September a list of specific items in that inventory “that plaintiff asserts were not seized from the premises”. Dearie also asked them to submit any corrections to the government’s list by that date, including items they believe were seized at Mar-a-Lago but not listed in the inventory.

As he rolled out the first official Republican Party congressional platform in years, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy fittingly invoked the revered father of the GOP: Abraham Lincoln.

At the top of a letter to Republican lawmakers thanking them for their contributions to the “Commitment To America”—the policy agenda they are launching near Pittsburgh on Friday—McCarthy included a quote attributed to Lincoln.

“Commitment,” reads the quote, “is what transforms a promise into reality.”

For McCarthy’s purposes, it’s a pitch-perfect message. There’s just one problem: there’s no record of Lincoln actually saying it.

The quote appears often on social media or inspirational websites, attributed to Lincoln. But a review of historical records by The Daily Beast turned up no proof of when or where the beloved president said these words.

Christian McWhirter, a historian at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library in Springfield, Illinois, said he could find “no reliable evidence” that Lincoln ever said those words. “They do not appear in his writings and I cannot find them recollected by any of his contemporaries,” McWhirter told The Daily Beast.

McCarthy’s office did not immediately respond to questions about how they sourced the quote.

What may have injected this phrase into the public’s bloodstream was not Lincoln but Lehman Brothers, the Wall Street titan that collapsed in the 2008 financial crisis.

In 1986, Lehman Brothers placed a full-page ad in the Wall Street Journal thanking its longest-tenured employees. At the top of the page is the full quote that is attributed in some places online to Lincoln.

“Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions. And the actions which speak louder than words. It is making the time when there is none. Coming through time after time after time, year after year after year.”

“Commitment is the stuff character is made of; the power to change things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.”

Although McWhirter found the quote himself in 1984 not attributed to Lincoln, the Lehman ad seems to have been a main source for the proliferation of the quote, with witnesses in congressional hearings referencing it—while sourcing it to Lehman Brothers—and business journals quoting it. At some point, Honest Abe was likely given credit for thinking it up.

“It appears to have been unattributed until the internet came along and people began attributing it to Lincoln, which is common with some of these false Lincoln quotes,” McWhirter said

MADISON – Former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman told a group of  Republicans this month that a revolution against government officials over the 2020 election has become necessary but said people have become too comfortable to water the “tree of liberty” with blood.  

“For the first time in my life I am beginning to wonder if America’s best days are behind us,” Gableman said Sept. 9 at a dinner hosted by the Republican Party of Outagamie County, according to audio released by liberal activist Lauren Windsor.

Democrats called the comments disturbing and outrageous, noting Gableman produced no evidence that called the election results into question after spending $1 million of taxpayer money to complete a probe authorized by Assembly Speaker Robin Vos.

Vos fired Gableman earlier this summer after calling his review “an embarrassment to the state.” Meanwhile, on Monday Gableman appeared in court to represent a Racine County man who admitted to committing election fraud.

“Our comfort is holding us back from taking the action that is necessary,” Gableman said at the Sept. 9 dinner. “The greatest challenge of our poor in this country is not lack of food, it’s obesity. It’s a beautiful world. But it’s that very comfort that is keeping us from what our founders knew to be the only way to keep an honest government, which is revolution.

“Thomas Jefferson said that the tree of liberty must be watered by the blood of revolution in every generation. I don’t think that’s going to happen.”

Gableman has been paid by taxpayers for more than two decades to enforce laws. He was paid more than $100,000 and spent more than $1 million of taxpayer money during his election review.

Republican candidates for governor and attorney general, Tim Michels and Eric Toney, and state Supreme Court candidate Dan Kelly, also spoke at the event, according to the group’s social media posts.

State Rep. Mark Spreitzer, a ranking Democrat on the Assembly elections committee who has sparred with Gableman over his probe, said Gableman has demonstrated that he is driven by anger and has wanted approval of “far right extremists” since the beginning. 

 “Now that he has lost his taxpayer-funded sham investigation, he’s stepping up his violent rhetoric even more,” Spreitzer said. “This kind of violent rhetoric sadly isn’t surprising, but it is still deeply disturbing and absolutely wrong. Either Mike Gableman failed to learn the lessons of January 6th or he is actively supporting yet another attempt to violently overthrow our government.”

Vos did not respond to a request for comment. 

Gableman, Michels have support of Donald Trump

Gableman and Michels are backed by former President Donald Trump and have promoted Trump’s false claims about widespread voter fraud and irregularities manipulating the outcome of the 2020 election. Both have said they are open to the idea of decertifying the election outcome. Toney has agreed with constitutional experts that decertification is impossible and illegal. 

Trump lost to President Joe Biden in Wisconsin by about 21,000 votes. Two recounts paid for by Trump, nonpartisan state audits, judges and a study conducted by the conservative Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty have confirmed the election result. 

But Gableman was hired by Vos in 2021 to probe the election anyway. At the time, Trump was pushing Vos to do more to question the election result.

The assignment catapulted Gableman to a national profile among election deniers and conspiracy theorists. Gableman also was asked to perform the invocation at a rally held by Trump in Waukesha in August for Michels.

In his remarks to the Outagamie Republicans, Gableman paraphrased a letter Jefferson wrote a few years after the conclusion of the American Revolutionary War.  

“What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms,” Jefferson wrote.

“The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.” 

Gableman on Monday acted as counsel for Harry Wait, a Union Grove man who fraudulently requested absentee ballots for Vos and Racine Mayor Cory Mason to prove violations of the law are possible.

Republican allies break with Trump after he claims he can declassify documents just by “thinking” (msn.com)

Top Republican senators pushed back on former President Donald Trump’s claim that he could declassify secret national security documents just by “thinking about it.”

“If you’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified, even by thinking about it,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday. “Because you’re sending it to Mar-a-Lago or wherever you’re sending it. There doesn’t have to be a process. There can be a process, but there doesn’t have to be. You’re the president — you make that decision.”
