The Senate Holds the Key to Donald Trump’s Re-election
In this post, I’ll describe what I believe is the most viable path for President Trump to be re-elected using provisions outlined in the Constitution, and federal and state laws that govern elections. (In addition to the written text of this post, a video version is provided at the bottom.)
This discussion centers on the Electoral Count Act of 1887. After this Act was passed, it was codified as 3 U.S Code Chapter 1, and several provisions were added. I’ve read the Act and a number of scholarly opinions on what it allows, what it prohibits, and what subjects it does not address. Most relevant to this discussion are sections 2, 3, and 4 of the Act (which correspond approximately to sections 5-15 of the 3 U.S. Code Chapter 1). For a deeper dive into the history and application of the Act, Justice Stephen Siegel published an insightful 131-page article titled, The Conscientious Congressman’s Guide to the Electoral Count Act of 1887.
It’s helpful to remember that the Electoral Count Act is broken into several sections. Provisions contained in one section do not necessarily apply to other sections. Failure to consider this point has led some to come to erroneous conclusions about the mechanics of the electoral process.
Of interest to most readers is how electoral votes for Joe Biden might be disqualified, and if that would set up a situation where President Trump could be re-elected. Let’s begin our discussion by looking at section 4 of the Electoral Count Act.
Section 4 of the Act provides rules as to how objections are to be made by members of Congress to the votes of electors on the day votes are counted (January 6th). It specifies that objections must be made in writing and must be signed by a member of both the House and the Senate. An objection is sustained only when both chambers of Congress agree to sustain it. If only one chamber of Congress sustains the objection, that elector’s vote is counted. With a Democrat-controlled House of Representatives, it is unlikely that an objection by Republicans would be sustained since both chambers must vote in favor of it.
Section 2 of the Act describes the process by which electors are to be chosen and it outlines the so-called safe harbor provision. The “safe harbor” provision can be seen as a conditional promise that Congress will not reject a state’s electors if disputes about their selection are resolved at least 6 days prior to the day electors vote. This year, electors voted on December 14th. The safe harbor period ended on December 8th. In order for a state to claim they met the safe harbor provision, disputes regarding electors would need to be settled by that day.
Section 2 permits a state to make a claim to Congress that they abided by all applicable laws when choosing and certifying their electors. A state is essentially asking Congress not to disqualify their electors on the premise that all laws were followed. Congress still reserves the right to reject a state’s electors if the state did not choose or certify its electors in accordance with the law. The state’s safe harbor claim would be rendered invalid if an unlawful process was used to choose or certify electors.
Violations of Law
Herein lies the problem for many states. Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, and Pennsylvania have been accused in court of violating state or federal law or the Constitution when they administered their 2020 elections, by which they chose electors. In response, these states have not denied that they violated the law. Their defense has been to demand that courts not overturn their unlawful elections because such a move would be unprecedented.
Section 2 of the Electoral Count Act requires states to conduct their elections lawfully. Any breach of the law in the manner in which an election is conducted or electors are chosen is grounds to question the validity of electors and their votes. If a state simply erred in administering its election, that would not be grounds to reject electors, But if fraud were evident or if officials knowingly violated the law, the entire election process is called into question and Congress would be justified in disqualifying that state’s electors.
Arizona’s largest county, Maricopa, has been ordered to conduct a forensic audit on its voting machines after the election was certified by the Governor. The safe harbor provision of section 2 is given by Congress as an enticement for states to resolve disputes before they certify their elections and seat their electors. Arizona did not resolve disputes regarding the choosing of its electors prior to the safe harbor day. In fact, Governor Ducey certified the election on the day there was a hearing where evidence of election fraud was presented. The fact that Arizona made no effort to investigate fraud invalidates its safe harbor claim, and Congress has grounds to reject its electors. Likewise, Antrim County Michigan was ordered to conduct a forensic audit after the state’s election was certified and evidence of fraud was uncovered. Michigan’s safe harbor claim is likewise invalid and Congress has grounds to reject its electors.
Any Time Is Fine
A careful reading of sections 2 and 3 of the Electoral Count Act reveals that there are no instructions as to how and when Congress can object to the choosing of a state’s electors when the objection is to the manner in which the electors are chosen.
Although it is true that a rule is provided governing objections in section 4, objections to provisions found in section 2 are not subject to the rules of section 4. Section 2 objections would be handled under the normal rules of Congress. For Congress to pass a bill, both chambers must vote in favor of it. If one chamber votes against it, the bill is not passed. The same rule applies to objections pertaining to sections 2 and 3 of the Electoral Count Act. For the vote of an elector to be counted, both chambers must agree that the vote should be counted. If one chamber votes to object to an elector, that elector’s vote is not counted. As long as the objection pertains to a section other than section 4, only one chamber’s vote is needed to disqualify electors.
If objections were made in the Senate to the electors of several states on the grounds that the election procedures violated state or federal law or the Constitution (conditions specified in section 2), and if Republicans voted by party line to sustain those objections, the votes of electors in those states would not be counted.
Sections 2 and 3 of the Electoral Count Act provide no rule as to how or when objections must be made, or when they must be voted on by Congress. If the Senate wanted to convene a special session tomorrow and vote on objections to electors, there is nothing to prevent them from doing it.
Alternate Electors Not Needed
A number of states have two sets of electors that sent certificates to Congress. One set of electors voted for Joe Biden and one vote for Donald Trump. In all cases, the Trump electors were not certified by the Governors of those states. The scenario I’m discussing doesn’t factor in two sets of electors. Donald Trump can be re-elected without them. The “dueling electors” scenario favors Biden and the Governors who certified those electors.
Counting the Vote
The President and Vice-President are chosen by a simple majority of 270 out of a total of 538 electoral college votes. Some have assumed that if a state’s electors were to be rejected, the total number of electoral votes would be reduced. If for, example, all 20 of Pennsylvania’s electors were rejected, some believe the total number of electoral college votes would be reduced by 20 to 518. Such a reduction would reduce the simple majority to 260 votes. There is no discussion in the Electoral Count Act or any other election law indicating that the total number of votes is to be reduced when a state’s electors are rejected. It would seem that the total number of votes remains at 538 (and the majority at 270) regardless of how many electors are rejected by Congress.
Joe Biden is currently claiming a total of 306 electoral votes. If he loses 37 votes due to electors being rejected, he would not have the 270 votes needed to win the election. Almost any combination of losses of three states for Biden would leave him short of 270 votes. For example, if Biden electors for Pennsylvania, Arizona and Michigan were rejected by the Senate, Biden would end up with 259 electoral votes—11 shy of the number needed. In this scenario, Donald Trump would also come up short of the number needed to win. If neither candidate has the required number of votes to be declared the winner, a “contingent election” is the next step.
If no candidate receives a majority of votes from the electoral college, the 12th amendment states that the House of Representatives is to take a vote to decide the next President and the Senate is to vote to decide the next Vice-President. The House vote is to be conducted with each state delegation receiving one vote. In the Senate, each Senator casts one vote. Currently, Republicans hold a majority of state delegations in the House. The vote in the House would likely re-elect Donald Trump. The vote in the Senate would likely re-elect Mike Pence.
All of this is based on the assumption that Republicans will maintain their majority in the Senate. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler will be on the ballot in Georgia’s January 5th run-off election. If they lose, the already slim majority for Republicans gets even thinner, making it all the more important for them to be elected.
The Senate Holds the Key
The courts have in most cases refused to even consider claims of election fraud and administrative malfeasance. Republican Senators have an opportunity, and I would argue, an obligation to provide the remedy that the courts have refused to. The remedy is to reject the electors of states that did not follow the law.
Republicans control the Senate. They have the ability to sustain objections to electors without the help of the House when those objections pertain to sections 2 or 3 of the Electoral Count Act. There is no time-frame specified as to when objections must be made or voted on. The Senate and the Senate alone has the ability to prevent Joe Biden from being inaugurated. Mitch McConnell cannot say we have to accept Biden because nothing can be done. If Biden becomes our next President, the blame belongs squarely on the shoulders of a Republican Senate that chose to accept the results of a fraudulent election when a constitutional remedy was available.
My call to action:
- Email and call US senators and insist that they reject the electors of any state where election laws were not followed.
- Tell them to object to the safe harbor provision of section 2 of the Electoral Count Act.
- Tell them section 2 does not require the House to agree with the Senate in sustaining an objection.
- Tell them section 2 has no date specified as to when the objection is voted on.
- If you know a U.S. Representative or Senator, send them a link to this post.
Not by Power, not by Might, but by My Spirit saith The Lord.
It’s not enough for the Senate to do it’s duty There must be a translation if these legal actions into a form the American public can easily understand or we risk Civil War and anarchy.
PM does your electoral vote count take into consideration that Trump won 1 of 4 electoral votes in Maine?
There are many, or were many paths to correct the fraud…but it appears no one with any authority or power granted to them in the states, judicial systems, or probably in the Senate have any courage or moral character to do what is necessary to save this country from lawlessness. It is sad to see how deep the corruption goes.
Please excuse my ignorance… I have written letters and emailed them to my California Senators, the state I live in. I also did it for Wisconsin… Should we write the Senators in other states? As I started to write Pennsylvania my email would not go through because my county was not on their dropdown form. So I thought I better ask you… Thank you for all you have done for us to understand everything! GOD bless you! I bought your books for CHRISTmas presents and they are all wrapped… Gotta get them for me now LOL!
Because the election pertains to all US citizens, you do have the right to email senators in other states and tell them where you stand and what you think they should do on your behalf.
I went to contactsentator.com and emailed every single GOP senate. I am making phone calls tomorrow. Thank you so much Dave & Denise
Very informative article Dave. Thanks for all of your research and hard work.
First I want to thank you for putting putting in the work to get the message out I am 65 years old and after our record snow fall of 47 inches of snow in upstate NY Endicott where IBM was founded anyways I am sore and plenty tired anyways I am Stunned by the criminal media and there big tech overlords that we are seeing this play out . The fraud was beyound flagrant and were on pins and needles because of our corrupt Government since Trump won the election and really before the swearing in its been non stop destroy Trump by any means necessary .If this somehow plays out in a Biden win then call marshal law and clean house .0
We can under no circum stances hand the Keys over to Biden Trumps EO should do the job done I think they have all the proof they need Trump has remained calm and confident . People Like Leslie Stall boil my blood Peace and blessed Holidays for your wife and family
Love your news updates, thank you for continuing them. Have you considered parlor? Love to have you there. You and family are in my prayers . I’m sharing your news with my friends and Parler platform, face book doesn’t allow it on news feed but I share on messenger. As always it’s very informative. And we are praying for president Trump and family, military, patriots, all Trump supporters,all children.
Thank you ?
I’m on Parler (@davehayes)
Thank you for this very informative news update. Love all your coverage. Looking forward to the next one. I share where I can, like Parler , face book messenger.
Face book news feed censors me a lot.
God bless you and family. My prayers are with every one.
Very clear. Thank you, PM. S/F,
Since Mitch McConnell has recommended to Republican senators that they accept a Biden presidency and move on, how is it possible even under sections 2 and 3 to get a majority of senators to vote for the legitimate electors or disallow the illegal electors? You gave an interesting analysis of the law, but it requires all the Rep senators to hang together, and they are not. Only five or six Republican senators have expressed support for President Trump. This approach will never work unless Trump drops the hammer, arrests the traitors and goes forward with a patriot majority (maybe 15) in the senate that is left after the hammer falls. The military is the only way.
I fully agree. Any non military solution is a pipe dream. Election law was egregiously broken, even SCOTUS wont defend, being cowards. I dont see any other way but rivers of blood and not only the death of the traitors but Democrat far left groups BLM/Antifa. All of them to the last one. The alternative is a year from now, if this stands, Democrats will come for our guns. Then it will get real. Bloody.
I agree with virtually all the comments here. This election was a mess and should not be allowed to stand. Now that the President has said he will not enact Martial Law or take other overt actions I’ve lost my hope. The Courts are not our friends and especially not the friend of the President. Many won’t even allow him to present his case in Court. When he said he would not use Martial Law, it deflated me, because I don’t see any other viable solutions here. There is no doubt the election was a scam and his winning votes were stolen from him. If the Courts will not act and he will not use force what’s left? NOTHING. I’ve become very pessimistic about our future. He said he would veto the Defense bill now it appears he will not. The democrats and RINOS cobbled together a pork stuffed 6,000 page bill no one has read for COVID relief and he will sign it even though much of the money goes overseas and to rich folks who don’t need it. There was an article in ET that said there are provisions in the bill to give retroactive payments to illegal immigrants totaling more the $2,000 each, while citizens get $600. The democrats had turned full communist and seem to want a totalitarian form of government, if this election stands, they will get it. Woe is us, woe is us.
One way for Trump to win is for mass arrests to take place during the upcoming recess. This would include many politicians, mostly Democrat. Then Republicans would have majorities in both houses and could vote Trump in.
I am troubled by how many people here are considering martial law an acceptable last option. I don’t believe President Trump will go there, and thank goodness! If the Republican Senate doesn’t reject the Electors as PM suggests they can, and if Congress accepts the Biden electors on Jan 6, then all the legal processes provided by the Constitution will have been completed. Declaring martial law to stop that Constitutional outcome would be wildly misguided and a dangerous. What makes the USA exceptional is that we are a nation of laws and that we ALWAYS transfer political power according to those laws. Break that tradition and I don’t see how it returns. Power in the future would belong to whoever controls the military. Today that might be Trump, but who would it be in 4 or 8 or 12 years from now? Have faith. Our country is not coming to an end even if it feels that way. There will be another Presidential election in 4 years, and campaigning for that will begin on January 21.
You said that we are a nation of laws. Election laws weren’t followed. Immigration laws are not followed. The rich and powerful are not held to the law. Evidence shows we are not a nation of laws.
Amen dave 2
Absolutely agree with Dave. With all that has gone one in the USA for decades … This is NOT the first time the election was stolen, or the corruption started, or the race card played, or rioting and chaos in the streets, or criminals in high places… NOT being locked up and NOT held accountable, or the killing of babies, the killing of human beings and walked away! Not even the first time of Foreign Interference … On and on it goes…. Come on people, WAKE UP!!
Many seem to overlook that an actual crime was committed that put us in this spot. There is conclusive evidence that foreign entities (China, Russia, Iran) interfered with the election and numerous politicians and other citizens are implicated in committing election fraud. Meanwhile, Canada has allowed Chinese troops to amass near our borders. American politicians have already been briefed that they are under investigation for Treason. True, Trump wants to show that the election was stolen and a Biden presidency is illegitimate, but the real danger is that evidence will show a massive incidence of Treason throughout this government. If you will sit for allowing traitors to throw our elections by putting form over function, that is your right. Include me out.
Well stated William! You are spot on, no patriot wants this election to stand. Traitors should be dealt with in the traditional way, on the gallows. If we lose this fight, we lose our Republic.
agreement with William, 70 yo caliifornian. Sick and tired of illegal “rule”, “laws” here. Its time to be resolute and follow the Lord’s guidance about what is right and wrong. Constitution is our most effective tool, but if “laws” are not constitutional, and do not follow what is right /wrong, we must get a backbone and stand/ fight for the right side.it does not seem to me the rules above follow what is right and wrong! Do not complicate the issue!! If our citizens and our leaders are not virtuous, a self governing body will fail!.
Doesn’t the President of the Senate select the Slate to even be considered?
One of my concerns here is that does it not require these Republican Senators and Representatives to act patriotic and not swampy. Time and time again we have seen Republicans fold under pressure rather than stand up and be counted. The further down the process we go the more we are discovering this. People who were being counted on have not been come good. I know we don’t want a military solution, but I’m starting to think that there will be no other option.
Agreed, Russell. As a bare minimum President Trump requires a majority vote in the Senate to disqualify electors. Since Mitch McConnell has told his colleges in the Senate that Biden won and we should move on, I don’t see where any majority is coming from in either House. As a result, there will be no relief from the electoral fraud in Congress, and the 14th Amendment or the EO of 12 Sep 2018 or the Insurrection Act of 1807 are the last remaining remedies.
Thank you for keeping us updated, and helping us stay sane! (I’m banking on the Trump re-election transforming not just the U.S. but the U.K., where I live, and the whole world!
Enjoying reading the Great Awakening!
Take care, good luck and God bless you!
First and foremost God is still in control.
At this point I will still do what I can to push my senators to do the right thing for the country but I don’t trust them at all. Both are republican but one a swamp rat and the other a swamp fence sitter and you don’t know from one day to the next what he will do.
I am praying mightily and putting this in Gods hands knowing that He can solve this if it is His will.
Please join me in praying mightily.
I’m with Tom. Thank you for your careful study and coaching, Praying Medic.
In Jesus Mighty Name, in agreement, Amen & Amen.
Thank you PM.
I love the lessons on our election process. I never knew there were so many steps that needed to be gone through to get it done. Our founding fathers must have been guided by the one and only Almighty God! The God of the Holy Bible. They were So cleaver in trying to make things just and fair. I think so much so that they had to have divine intervention to be so thorough and just in their processes and the way Government was set up.
My biggest worry, like anyone with a moral compass is that the Crooked Republicans will fold as always. There could have been so many good things done if they would have supported some of the decent things that WE want and that president Trump has tried to do or has done without them by executive order. Some of these Republicans make me as sick or sicker than the Democrat evil alliance of Satan… Satan’s puppets ). The fact some Republicans are cowards, or swamp creatures that do not stand for decency and right and wrong while telling us they are on our side is evil. Maybe worse than the Democrats. At least the Democrats make known there evil plan that show they are against decency and morality while some of the Republicans who claim to be for us are traitors to the people that they received votes from. I’m not sure God’s plan, and although I believe I should have more faith like our Heavenly Father tells us to in his word, and my lack of complete faith ( which I pray for more of ) makes it really stressful to watch this play out. We know what the bible teaches about the end times tribulation, ( the times before God makes all things right ) where there will be one world leader, people being made to take the mark of the beast in order to buy, sell and have employment etc. etc. We are told God appoints leaders for whatever his perfect reasoning is. This is what bothers me: Is this the time where there is an awakening for God ( which would be great ), or is this the beginning of the climax of the bad times before God makes all things right? Not knowing where we are in history and not knowing the current unfolding of Gods plan makes things pretty stressful. Sorry to get off topic of your post, but sooner or later Gods revelations will come to pass as they have throughout history. We need to have faith for when our Republican Senators let us down. I think they will, but I will praise God for it if they do not let us down and if do the right thing. At some point these people that we have elected ( as with all people in general ) have to realize that you can only dance with the devil so long before you get burnt. Not only by him but with God’s judgment. I know this has been long but I’m just giving feedback on my thoughts and hopefully helping people know that God is real, God is Good and God has a perfect plan ( although hard to understand sometimes ) . One last thing… If there is anyone who reads this that has not asked Jesus Christ to be their personal Lord and Savior and to be forgiven for their sins than please do that. He loves you and want to restore communion with you and Him. I am not trying to be “holier than thou” BECAUSE I AM SO MUCH LESS THAN I SHOULD BE. I have no moral high ground in and of myself. I am the kind of Christian that some folks look at and get turned off by because of my sin at times. I am however forgiven, and I do not deserve the love or grace that has been extended to me. I just want folks to know the Truth about this free gift and since I got on a rant about God’s revelations in the bible which wasn’t my original purpose, but it turned into by explaining my views I guess… God bless y’all. God bless our President, and God bless our country, Israel and the world for that matter. May the world understand and respect right and wrong again! Thank you.
A comment on the matter of “Certification” of Electors. The Electoral Count Act makes reference to Electors “certified” by the Governor. The Constitution makes no provision for the Executive in each State to “Certify” the state Electors. Article II Section 1 states the Electors vote by ballot in their respective states and “make a List of all the persons voted for and the number of votes for each” and the Electors, SIGN AND CERTIFY the list and send it sealed to Seat of Government. I think the ECA making reference to the Governor certifying Electors is in conflict with Article II. The Judiciary has never addressed the question and I suspect , if an argument is presented before them, they will deem any reference to the Governor “certifying” his or her State’s Electors unconstitutional. It is the plenary power granted by the Constitution to the Legislature to select and certify Electors, not the executive of the State.
Further, recently in Michigan, Republican Electors were denied entry to the State House where they (the Electors) planned to cast their “provisional” ballots for President Trump. The State Police (Law Enforcement) barred the Electors’ entry to the State House. Law Enforcement is an organ of the Executive Branch (i.e. Governor Witmer in this case). In this instance, the Executive Branch (i.e. Law Enforcement) interfered with the Election/Electors process.
A little more fodder for the impeachment proceedings of Gov Witmer?
I believe the Governor has to certify the WINNING Electors and when the Governor fails to do that, just like the Hawaiian Gov in 1960 the President of the Senate is free to pick who he/she believes the winning Electors are.
In a situation like we have in 2020 (i.e. contested elections), the Governor can end up “certifying” a fraudulent outcome. That happened in Hawaii in 1960, by the way. The Electoral Count Act makes provisions for settling any disputes/controversies no later than 6 days PRIOR to “safe Harbor” day. That is not the state of affairs today in six states. I still contend giving the Executive any power to “certify” Electors runs foul of the Constitution which states the Legislature has the plenary power to select and certify Electors. There are precedents of “dueling” Electors from prior elections. Let the process run its course, as described in the Constitution.
I feel a Paul Harvey “And now you know the rest of the story” moment coming upon me. Thank you, Dave, for all you have done for us and our Republuc..
We now know a whole lot more than the average law student knows.
This research is what a fair and balanced media is intended to share, which now tells those who have been in denial is the reason you should be pulling the plug on mass media. We know a lot of people still will refuse to listen. Doesn’t matter as long as they promise not to vote.
Especially fraudulent voting.
Wow good information. When first hearing about the solution of congress it seemed like it would have been a pretty easy solution but after diving into this. We are putting a lot of trust in our politicians (which I have none) to do the right thing. Optics show we have a lot of rino’s in DC. With Mitch warning GOP not to object to electors, also tells me that if given the chance to the confirmation of Biden/Harris? I have not seen anyone on the other side of the aisle in either house saying anything positive. This also makes me think Trumps only salvation would be his executive order. I have not been able to grasp ahold of the concept of how the military is going to have a positive outcome of the election.
DJ, the EO allows the President to seize the assets of anyone involved assisting foreign interference in our elections. That would put the MSM out of business or into the hands of the patriots. The 14th Amendment allows all those involved in election fraud to be arrested including governors, mayors, election officials, secretaries of state, police, state legislators, and media employees. When the leftists/communists take to the streets, Trump could declare martial law. He may need to declare it anyway since so many in government will go to prison that government will cease to function in some places.
Great Job! Sharing it with my Senator Rand Paul and China Mitch.
A very short but very impacting speech by Jim Caviezel.
If it is true that Roberts did not take the Texas case because he was scared of the riots then the Supreme Court is completely broken.
Wahoo a post I can read even without closed captions! Thank you.
You did a great job elucidating this topic, thank you. If only the Courts would allow the President to present the case of rampant voter cheating, then this entire issue would be moot and the President could be planning his second term, but they won’t so the country is seemingly marching towards a civil war or something close to that. At this juncture I really don’t care how the President does it, but this election needs to be redone in a fair and honest manner. If it is not, I fear our Republic is lost.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
What about Mitt Romney? He votes and comments for himself and not for the people of Utah. We still have 2 more years of him. Can he mess up the election?
How do you spell impeach the jerk?
…hate to say it, but it’s not going to happen…we live in a two-tier justice system as evidence by the lack of prosecutions for the crimes that you tried to say happened…time to face reality that there are not enough republican’s in congress that will stand up true patriots…evil has won for now…thanks for trying…
I just sent an email to Mike Braun, Republican Senator of Indiana. I hope the Senate will heed our words. God bless America.
Here in NJ, writing your elected officials has a different name – it’s called “wasting your time.” It’s so rampant, we don’t even bother. The Senate holds the key, and most likely they will drop it as well. NO ONE wants to touch this hot potato because of the lefties rioting. Remember, they’ve been gaslighted into thinking they won legit and by a huge margin – because they hate Trump, the whole world must – and they’re not gonna take it well. Roberts on the SCOTUS had it right, he’s scared of being Doxxed and rioted and so are the others. The Senate has a duty to stop this. Like every other GOP controlled body, they really don’t want to do it. Turn it around, and the lefties would’ve had this completed two weeks ago. McConnell wants to retire peacefully and *really* doesn’t want to do this. We shall see. As said earlier, if the lefties succeed, Dominion voting will be the law of the land. You’ll NEVER have another Republican anything. They’ve figured out a way to overcome Republican landslides.
The riots can be stopped and *are* in Republican strongholds. They should never be a reason not to uphold the constitution.
We have to stop the APC: “Approved Propaganda Channels” and pray that there will be men and women with cajones that do not walk in fear.
Thank you SO much for your video and article. I have just finished calling ALL of the Republican US Senators and leaving a message. Your “call to action” outline helped me to articulate what I needed to say. Some mailboxes were full, like Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham’s, but for the most part it was just a few hours of my time I could participate and feel like I am fighting this fight! If anyone needs the link, just go to https://www.senate.gov/ and navigate to the list of Senators. You can sort by party.
I simply said I am from Michigan and we don’t have any Republican US Senators so I am calling on all of them!
I respectfully disagree about one of your thoughts. It says below that the “the lawful tribunal of such a state” in the case of dueling electors. That is the legislature of said State. Those are the ones counted, not the Governor’s set of electors. The lawful tribunal is the State Legislature…and that is who voted for President Trump.
Counting Electoral Votes: An Overview of Procedures at the Joint Session, Including Objections by Members of Congress
This is from page 8
In the second case, when two lists were proffered as being from two different state authorities who arguably made determinations provided for under 3 U.S.C. §5 (a state statutory election contest determined at least six days prior to December 14, the winner of the state presidential election), the question of which state authority is “the lawful tribunal of such State” to make the decision (and thus the acceptance of those electors’ votes
The other thing I believe you’re mistaken about, is when the house votes on these issues, it’s one vote per State…not the entire house. And if that is the case, the republicans outnumber the democrats in States…but not the House as a whole.
I would love for you to have another look, and get back to me.
Respectfully and sincerely…Daniel
If everything rests on our Senators, then there was a very long plan of action for past 4 yrs that was not well thought out. Ask some of your readers from each State if they can truly trust how each of their Senators would perform under situation you outlined. If anything the past 2 months have painfully illustrated to everyone how little they can count on their elected officials. For instance, if we were betting people, we
would bet against Senator Cornyn to do any of the things you listed.
It’s time to accept the fact that the deep state won….again. Doesn’t matter if there’s mountains of evidence. the courts won’t do anything about it. Many are optimistic about 2024 and another Trump run, there is no 2024. They got away with it before and they’ll do it again. Sad that there will be no prosecutions for the all the Epstein Island pedophiles, the Russia hoax or for those that stole the election. For years we heard about a Storm and nobody can stop what is coming. I read time and time again how arrests were soon to take place and how evil people will be eradicated from the earth. It didn’t happen.
Biden’s administration will erase everything Trump accomplished as if his presidency never existed. There’s too few Patriots in our government to stand up to the swamp. The only thing to look forward to is more lockdowns, forced vaccinations, Supreme Court packing, mandatory gun buy backs, new Green Deal and the rest of the far left agenda.
