“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th,” Trump said in a statement. “I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”

Trump’s statement follows the formal certification of Biden’s Electoral College victory, presided over by Vice President Mike Pence. When the certification process, which was disrupted for several hours due to the chaos at the Capitol, was restarted, Pence began by condemning the violence that erupted and praising law enforcement for taking control of the situation.

“Today was a dark day in the history of the United States Capitol,” said the Vice President (video below). “But thanks to the swift efforts of U.S. Capitol police, federal, state, and local law enforcement, the violence was quelled. The Capitol is secured, and the people’s work continues. We condemn the violence that took place here in the strongest possible terms. We grieve the loss of life in these hallowed halls, as well as the injuries suffered by those who defended our Capitol today. And we will always be grateful for the men and women who stayed at their post to defend this historic place.”

“To those who wreaked havoc in our Capitol today, you did not win. Violence never wins. Freedom wins,” he continued. “And this is still the people’s house. And as we reconvene in this chamber, the world will again witness the resilience and strength of our democracy, for even in the wake of unprecedented violence and vandalism at this Capitol, the elected representatives of the people of the United States have assembled again, on the very same day, to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. So may God bless the lost, the injured, and the heroes forged on this day. May God bless all who served here and those who protect this place. And may God bless the United States of America. Let’s get back to work.”

President Trump is right. While the days ahead might be dark and gray, full of storms and trials and tribulations, we must not give up the fight to preserve our liberty and freedom.

We must fight, peacefully, using the system our founding fathers provided for us, so that we can retain our republic the right way. We need to shift gears a little and become more focused on winning cultural battles. After all, politics flows downstream from culture as Andrew Breitbart once said.

If we want to save our nation, we must start with the culture and allow those changes to filter naturally through the political realm. In the meantime, we must work to put stopgaps in place to prevent Democrats from destroying our nation.

Much work is yet to be done.
