Whether former President Donald J. Trump decides to mount another White House run in 2024 remains to be seen. However, his former vice president may soon see any of his own hopes of sitting in the Oval Office go up in smoke. Although, he himself ignited the dumpster fire.
Mike Pence joined Democrats in accusing supporters of the ex-POTUS of being ‘un-American” for skepticism about whether Joe Biden’s election “win” was legitimat. Trump himself has repeatedly expressed this doubt.
Pence dutifully defended Trump for years but saw the relationship between the two Republicans take a turn for the worse. This was after he joined congressional Republicans (with a few notable exceptions) in refusing to take a stand against what appeared to be serious fraud. Multiple key states denied the America-first billionaire businessman a second term amid elections fraught with inconsistencies.
Trump lashed out at Pence in a futile attempt to convince him to block the Electoral College certification of the election pending a review of questionable irregularities. However, the then-veep responded by stabbing him in the back and punching Biden’s ticket to the White House.
Like the anti-Trump RINOs, the neocon never-Trumpers, and the treacherous Democrats, Pence is sticking to the false narrative constructed around the so-called “insurrection”. In a speech this week, he suggested that Trump’s supporters are “un-American,” harsh terms from the former Indiana governor.

According to Pence, “January 6 was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol, but thanks to the swift action of Capitol Police and law enforcement, the violence was quelled, the Capitol secured, and we reconvened the Congress the very same day to finish the work of counting Electoral Votes from every state in the union.”
Pence continued, “No there are those in our party who believe that in my position as presiding officer over the joint session, that I possessed the authority to reject or return electoral votes certified by the states, but the Constitution provided the vice president with no such authority before the joint session of Congress”
“But the truth is, there’s almost no idea more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American President. The presidency belongs to the American people and the American people alone.” He said this while refusing to acknowledge what appeared to be a brazen theft of an election on a level with a third world country. An idea that many hold and will continue to hold until audits of the ballots have been conducted such as the one in Arizona’s Maricopa County.
Pence added, “I understand the disappointment many feel about the last election, I can relate. I was on the ballot. But you know, there’s more at stake than our party and our political fortunes in this moment.” This is the strongest indication yet that Pence supports the coming war on “domestic terrorism” that will cleanse the establishment of Trump and all of those who support him.
Such remarks are a deal killer unless Trump and millions of Americans who voted for him are removed from the political equation. This is something that Biden and his allies are determined to make happen.
Both Pence and Nikki Haley are preferred candidates of the globalist, warmongering remnants of the Bush-McCain-Romney establishment. However, his betrayal of Trump isn’t sitting well with the MAGA base which practically booed him off the stage at the Faith & Freedom Coalition summit last week.

Trump has repeatedly been sabotaged by poor hiring decisions of figures who turned on him, Pence is just the most prominent. If he does manage to return to the White House for a steel cage grudge match against The Swamp, he needs to do so with a better group of advisers.
