On Thursday’s episode of The Sara Carter Show, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ, offered his advice to President Donald Trump amid an election still too close to call. His message to the President: “Do not concede.”

“What I would tell President Trump is, you know, don’t give up, don’t give up,” he said. “And my advice is, do not concede. I’m sounding like Hillary Clinton here, do not concede, let’s fight this thing through it is too important to give up. And that I believe that, that God put him there for a reason. And I believe that God’s going to see us through this thing. But we have to be vigilant and fight like crazy to be worthy of God’s mercy and grace in this instance.”

Painting a dark picture of the country, Biggs explained the worst-case scenario of Biden winning the race at both the ballot box and the courts and ‘the Senate falling to 50/50.’ He said it will bring about a most progressive agenda the country has ever seen and at that point “….there will be no stopping them.”

“…Whether it’s they’ll create four new Senate seats by creating states, they’ll Green New Deal, they’ll implement the biggest tax increases in the history of the country, in perhaps the history of the world, they will nationalize certain businesses that they think should be nationalized, we’ll go to a single-payer health care system that moves abortion on demand, again, federally funded everything from partial-birth to late birth, post-birth abortion, which is infanticide. That’s the worst-case scenario,” Biggs explained.

BREAKING: IL judge orders state election board to remove Trump from primary ballot

Cook County Judge Tracie Porter issued a lengthy ruling Wednesday which orders the state election board to remove former President Donald Trump from the Illinois primary ballot on March 19. Porter wrote Trump is disqualified from the presidency due to his actions relating to the January 6, 2021 riots at the U.S. Capitol.

Porter said she was aware her “decision could not be the ultimate outcome,” given that higher courts will have a chance to weigh in; she also put her order on hold until Friday in anticipation of an appeal.

The Chicago Sun Times reports that the State Board of Elections voted unanimously last month to reject the same bid to block Trump from Illinois’ ballot under the 14th Amendment. But Porter found the board’s decision to be “clearly erroneous.”

The 14th Amendment bars from “any office, civil or military, under the United States” anyone who previously took an oath as an “officer of the United States” to support the Constitution but then engaged in “insurrection or rebellion.”

Trump’s lawyers have told the U.S. Supreme Court the amendment doesn’t apply because the president is not an “officer of the United States” under the Constitution and because he did not engage in “anything that qualifies as ‘insurrection.’”

According to the Chicago Sun Times, the “U.S. Supreme Court is poised to rule on the controversy soon — and appeared skeptical of the arguments to kick Trump off Colorado’s ballot. The clock is ticking on the nation’s high court given that Colorado’s primary election is Tuesday.” Porter also said her order would be put on hold if the Supreme court’s ruling is ultimately “inconsistent” with hers.
