Finally, a member of Congress admitted that the deep state, the Democratic Party, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and the media were attempting a coup against a duly elected President. Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) Friday told Breitbart Daily News, “This came very close to being the first successful coup since our Constitution went into effect in 1789. We are not having it, and we’re going to put people in jail that were part of this. That’s got to happen.”This is a public admission by an elected official that our government was in danger of being overthrown. Unlike military coups, this continues to be a coup attempt pitting political will against legal principles to undermine the will of the people. Here’s why this is dangerous.
Gohmert told Breitbart News, “It’s time for Republicans to say, ‘Enough already. You have put this country through hell. You have let these ridiculous allegations that we now see are totally bogus get you the majority in the House.’ But if the American people will wake up, and I hope that they will, I think that they are, it seems like things are indicating that, then it’s time for anybody with an R or D beside their names that’s going to preserve the Constitution–make no mistake, we are in a constitutional crisis–to stand up and say, ‘Enough already.'” Democratic Party leaders also are saying that America is in a Constitutional crisis, but few are pointing out that the Democratic leadership and the news media created the crisis.
The Daily Jot has been one of the few news outlets reporting that the nefarious machinations of these powerful political forces have been attempting a coup. All the while they were sending the narrative that President Donald Trump would not accept the results of the election if he lost, but they are the ones who will not accept the election results. They used a secret court to get legal ground to spy on Trump’s campaign and transition team in an effort to undermine his presidency, obstruct the workings of government, and to remove Trump from office. My personal opinion, however, is that no one high up will ever go to jail over this because sedition laws require “force” to be used against the government. The intent here has been cunningly obscured.
Many Christians write me saying that as Christians, our attention is to be focused on a higher kingdom. They claim government and affairs of America should be of no interest to Christians. I couldn’t disagree more. Our Constitution guarantees religious freedom and free speech. This has resulted in America being a beacon of Christ in spreading the gospel both in America and around the world. We are blessed beyond imagination because of religious freedom. To say that the affairs of government are of no interest to Christians is an ignorant position. Romans 12:21 says, “Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.” Moreover, being so heavenly minded that one is no earthly good is become a predominant reason why the nation and its citizens are exiting Christianity. Perhaps, that’s the real coup-one by the devil. (Used with permission by Bill Wilson and The Daily Jot)
