WASHINGTON, D.C., January 7, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — In a speech delivered during Congress’s certification of the 2020 electoral votes last night, Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL) doubled-down on his strong condemnation of “systematic,” “repeated” election fraud.
“We came here today to debate, to follow regular order, to offer an objection, to follow a process that is expressly contemplated in our Constitution, and for doing that we got called a bunch of seditious traitors,” Gaetz said.
“Now, not since 1985 has a Republican president been sworn in absent some Democrat effort to object to the electors, but when we do it, it is the new violation of all norms, and when those things are said, people get angry,” the Florida lawmaker continued.
“People do understand the concepts of basic fairness, and no competition contest or election can be deemed fair if the participants are subject to different rules,” he said.
For months, watchdog groups like the Amistad Project have charged swing states officials with creating a “two-tiered system” that overwhelmingly benefited Democratic voters in 2020.
The Amistad Project has argued that “local election officials in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and other states created a two-tiered election system by accepting private funds,” “in the form of strings-attached grants that imposed strict conditions on the way recipient jurisdictions managed their elections.”
The group found that a non-profit funded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg contracted with officials across battlegrounds states, disbursing tens of millions of dollars almost exclusively to Democratic areas, likely illegally.
“This fraud was systemic, it was repeated, it was the same system, and I dare say it was effective,” Gaetz said.
“We saw circumstances where, when Democrat operatives couldn’t get the outcomes they wanted in state legislatures, … they went and pressured and litigated and usurped the constitution with extra constitutional action of some officials,” he also noted.
Pictured above c.2009: Lisa Miller with her daughter Isabella
More than 10 years ago, in 2009, Lisa Miller took her daughter Isabella and traveled to Nicaragua because of her deep concern that her daughter was being "traumatized" by court-ordered visits with her former lesbian partner.
Two court-appointed advocates – one clinical therapist and one social worker – testified to the apparent trauma experienced by Isabella in sworn testimony. And, Miller, herself, also testified to the apparent trauma experienced by her daughter.
Other affidavits filed with the courts at that time alleged that abuse was taking place.
And so, in 2009, Miller decided to take action and remove Isabella from a deteriorating situation, traveling to Central America.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which asks President Trump to show clemency to all involved with the Lisa Miller case by granting them a presidential pardon.
Since 2009, three other people – including two Mennonite pastors and a businessman – who helped Lisa and Isabella travel to Nicaragua were convicted of “international kidnapping” for helping Lisa and her daughter, despite the fact that Lisa had custody of her daughter when they went to Central America.
These Mennonite pastors and businessman have already served their time in federal prisons, but their unjust convictions are a stain on their records.
And now, even though Isabella is considered a legal adult, Lisa Miller is still forced to “hide out” abroad, away from her home country.
The time has come to call an end to the Millers’ exile.
Please SIGN this petition, urging President Trump to issue all involved with Lisa a presidential pardon, and give the Millers a chance to freely return to the United States.
President Trump has been an unwavering ally to the Christian community, and he and his administration have done more for the pro-life cause and religious freedom than all other administrations combined.
By pardoning Lisa and the men who helped her and her daughter, President Trump could once again show his solidarity with the Christians who support and love him and continue to stand with him.
At the time that these events transpired, Miller thought she was doing the right thing to protect her daughter and she has already “served time” in exile.
Therefore, a presidential pardon could never be taken to mean that an actual kidnapping won't be pursued by federal authorities in the future.
But, given the special set of circumstances in this particular case, we urge President Trump to issue the pardon because the time the Millers have spent abroad – away from family, friends, and colleagues – could be considered “time served.”
And, by pardoning Lisa, President Trump could also give Isabella a new lease on life. By pardoning Kenneth Miller and Timothy Miller (who are unrelated to Lisa and Isabella) and Christian businessman Philip Zodhiates, President Trump could clear their records and give them a new lease on life, too.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition.

As outlined repeatedly by LifeSiteNews, state administrators, courts, and other officials fundamentally altered election procedure in various states, circumventing the constitutional authority of state legislatures.
Rep. Gaetz added that “this election saw an unprecedented amount of votes that could not be authenticated with true ID, with true signature match, and with true confidence for the American people.”
In Wisconsin, for example, state election officials encouraged voters to mark themselves as “indefinitely confined” due to COVID-19, allowing them to skip photo ID requirements. Although courts subsequently ruled against this approach, over 100,000 voters may have obviated legal safeguards inappropriately as a result.
“In 2016, Democrats found out that they couldn’t beat Donald Trump at the ballot box with voters who actually show up so they turned to impeachment and the witness box, and when that failed, they ran to the mailbox,” Gaetz continued.
“Our Article III courts have failed by not holding evidentiary hearings to weigh the evidence. We should not join in that failure. We should vindicate the rights of states,” he said. “We should vindicate the subpoenas in Arizona that have been issued to get a hold of these voting machines, and we should reject these electors.”
Gaetz’s speech was met with applause from his GOP colleagues, over 60% of whom voted against Biden electors.
