Thoughts on Mike Pence -- Dishonest    

My Thoughts on Mike Pence

Never Trust a Man Who Put a Knife in a Friend's Back

While Pence takes credit for Trump's presidential accomplishments, saying, we did this and we did that, he further twists the knife he strategically placed in his once friend's back, on January 6, 2021.

Just two days before, on Monday, January 4, 2021, Pence said the following at a Georgia rally:

“We’ve all got our doubts about the last election. I share the concerns of millions of Americans about voting irregularities. Come this Wednesday we’ll have our day in Congress. We’ll hear the evidence.”

Pence's own words implied he believed the election results were greatly fraudulent and that something could be done on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.

In Pence's book, “So Help Me God,” Pence, speaking of the upcoming January 6, 2021 says, when Trump first suggested holding a rally on that day, "My first thought was that a rally that day might be useful as a way to call even more attention to the proceedings on the floor of the House and Senate." --So, we can safely assume he expressed such to Trump. And we can safely assume this is why Trump believed Pence would do what he could do come January 6, 2021, and that would be to not read the so-called "results" on that then upcoming day.


Then come that day, Pence did in fact chicken out and read the so-called "results." That is when Trump went on Twitter and said Pence “didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution.” --THIS is what Pence is claiming endangered his life and his family's lives and tossed in the lives of the whole of Congress for effect. And THIS is a coward.

Not only was Pence too scared to take a stand for what he clearly believed had happened in the election, mass voter fraud, he then behaved just like liberals. He went after Trump's speech, speech that in no way called for harm to come to Pence or anyone for that matter. It is simply free speech. Yet Pence wants to turn it into threatening speech. That is straight out of the liberal playbook. And instead of admitting he could just not go through with it, he has chosen to lie and claim he did not have a constitutional right to NOT read those so-called "results."

Pence quotes the constitution, which speaking of the Vice President, who is the President of the Senate, states the following:

"the President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted;"

Pence says the constitution says no more and no less on this topic, in his defense of his claim that Trump asked him to choose between Trump and the constitution. Pence's exact words, "Trump asked me to choose him or the constitution - I chose the constitution." --This is an out and out lie. Trump would have never said such words. But Pence, who is a lawyer, is also playing by a lawyer's playbook. Lawyers will get one key line and stick with it like a dog with a bone. Mark my words, this will be Pence's one key line throughout the election. And it is a lie.*

*An accusation like this should be backed up with proof or never put out there. And if Trump had really said such a thing, then why did Pence say what he said, just two days before January 6th?

What is also a lie is Pence's implication that there was nothing he could have done that day, when fact is there was something. He could have simply refused to read the so-called "results" that day.

Nothing in the constitution says that the President of the Senate shall read the results on any one particular day. Pence could have simply refused to read them that day. He could have said he refused to read the so-called "results" that day, because he did not believe them to be the true results. No matter what, the constitution does NOT state a particular day the results shall be read. Pence could have put it off indefinitely. In the meantime, if Congress did not like it, Congress could have gone to work on amending the constitution. But as it is currently written, the constitution states what it states on this topic, no more and no less.

Another Thought

The day that Pence announced his run for office, his wife spoke of having been humbled by his first loss for a political office, way back when. She said they had thought they were "God's gift to D.C.," and spoke of how they needed to be humbled. In my opinion, they need some more of that good old fashion humbling. They remind me of that couple in church who aspire to bring light onto themselves and attempt to use the Lord in their endeavors to do such.

In Closing

It is written in Scripture that a friend loves at all times. I don't trust a man who sticks a knife in the back of a friend. And I certainly do not trust a man who attempts to use God in his plight to do such a thing.
