Rusty Bowers is a staunch conservative. He voted for Donald Trump twice. However, when pressured by Trump to break his oath of office and violate the Constitution by falsifying election results, he said, “no”. He stated he didn’t want to win by “cheating”. He also said ” my faith tells me the Constitution is divinely inspired” and his sincerity and patriotism was palpable. The difference in character betwwen Speaker Bowers and Donald Trump I s astounding. The integrity that Bowers exuded was the antithesis of the corruption and indecency that Trump exudes. The hearing Tuesday focused on the pressure campaign Trump and his allies put on state election officials and poll workers. Mr. Bowers reported being pressured by Trump, attorney John Eastman, and Rudy Giuliani to call for investigations of fraud in the Arizona election. They pressured him to decertify the electors for the state. Bowers held firm and said, “I won’t t do it.” The assault on Bowers by Trump resulted in acts of intimation and harrassment towards the Arizona official.
It’s a new pattern in our lives to worry about what will happen on Saturdays,” Bowers said about his family. “Because we have various groups come by in video trucks accusing me of being a pedophile and corrupt politician blaring loudspeakers and threatening him and his neighbors.” Trump is a thug, a low-life, and an American embarrassment around the world. Me. Bowers, like so many Republican officials, weathered the pressure to support the ” big lie” and saved democracy. Still, the extremist ideology of the alt-right lives in Bowers as he admits he would vote for Trump again. He supports racist, elitist policies but won’t break the law. Mr. Bowers, find another conservative candidate to support.
HOW WOULD TRUMP, MCCONNELL, MCCARTHY, TRUMP’S CHILDREN, AND OTHER REPUBLICAN OFFICIALS REACT IF ANGRY DEMOCRATS STARTED SHOWING UP AT THEIR HOMES, HOLDING GUNS, CARRYING BANNERS PROMOTING VIOLENCE AGAINST THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES? IF THE RADICALIZED VIOLENCE INSPIRED BY TRUMP AND HIS SUPPORTERS DOESN’T STOP, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DIE. WHILE WE PRAISE SPECIFIC REPUBLICANS FOR DEFENDING THE CONSTITUTION AND DEFYING TRUMP’S REQUEST TO OVERTURN A DEMOCRATIC ELECTION, WE MUST STILL SEE THOSE WHO SAY THEY WOULD STILL VOTE FOR TRUMP AGAIN AS POTENTIAL ENEMIES OF DEMOCRACY.
Violent threats from Trump supporters are increasing toward the members of the Jan. 6th Committee. Trump continues to play the victim and incite violent reactions within his base over the evidence the committee reveals about the crimes he committed against the Constitution. Hopefully, the Department of Justice will take action against Trump and his supporters who encourage violent retaliation against citizens who oppose their views. Does MAGA support free speech for all Americans? Does MAGA defend the Constitution? Or is America witnessing an ex-president and the Republican party attempt to destroy our democracy? The evidence is mounting from the testimonies of uncorrupted, non-MAGA Republicans that Trump is guilty of multiple federal crimes.
