Remember the shenanigans of the 2020 election? The mail-in vote flooding, the late night ballot-counting, the illegal last-minute modifications of election procedures? …
Now there are several new advocacy groups funded by millions in “dark money” dedicated to shutting down any lawyer involved in shedding light on election issues. Groups like the 65 Project and States United Democracy Center staffed by the usual crew of longtime Democrat party activists and RINO never-Trumpers are looking to bury concerned lawyers under a mountain of official complaints.
Their stated tactics are disbarments, “making them toxic in their communities and in their own firms” and destroying their careers. It’s explicitly personal, right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook. If they can destroy anyone who officially investigates the integrity of our elections, they can keep using the same bag of tricks that worked for them in 2020 forever.
The result is a massive chilling effect on the practice of election law and the loss of the profession entirely.
Today there’s one man speaking out. John Eastman is a constitutional scholar who, through his long career, has clerked at the Supreme Court, served as an attorney at Kirkland & Ellis where he specialized in constitutional litigation, taught constitutional law at Chapman University in California, and served as dean of the school. In 2020 he helped President Trump evaluate issues arising from the 2020 election and has been involved in election integrity efforts since then.
Now the Democrat lawfare machine has him in their sights.
On Tuesday this week he went before the State Bar of California to defend himself against disbarment, a trial engineered by the activist States United Democracy Center who filed complaints against him. He also faces a bar complaint filed against him with SCOTUS by the 65 Project. …
He’s also been approached by the FBI at the behest of the January 6th committee, even though he was nowhere near the Capitol on that day. He’s had his address printed in local newspapers and radical activists picket his house on a daily basis. They have even set spikes in his gravel driveway to damage the cars of his family and visitors, thrown dog feces at his house, and graffiti’d his street to direct more protestors to his home.
The new America:
Now, the swamp creatures who inhabit the “advocacy groups” that haunt the beltway are destroying the ideal of representation and reasoned debate.
They don’t need to argue in court, you see, they just need to make it impossible to be heard in court at all. They do this by going after not only the lawyers, but even the arguments themselves. That’s right, they want to make it impossible to make certain election related arguments in a court of law. …
Democrat party legal activists have realized they can lock in certain interpretations of the Constitution not through rulings (they don’t want to go to the Supreme Court for obvious reasons) but through procedure. Just like the science behind climate change and COVID-19, dissenting opinions are not allowed: the interpretation of the law is settled now, not by the courts or by the legislatures but by an unaccountable body of “experts” funded by the same networks that fund the nonprofits seeking and destroying conservative lawyers like Eastman.
It goes without saying that if these people succeed in what they’re doing, elections in the United States would be compromised — perhaps forever.
For religious cultists, the ends always justify the means. Don’t expect them to ever play fair, for they are driven by unquenchable psychological forces.
