Fox news ^ | January 6, 2017

Posted on 01/06/2017 10:58:23 AM PST by SMGFan

A joint session of Congress on Friday formally certified President-elect Donald Trump’s Electoral College victory, over the last-minute objections of several Democratic lawmakers who tried to contest the outcome – and were instructed by Vice President Biden, “It is over.” The certification clears away any final roadblocks for Trump’s road to the inauguration in two weeks. Trump was certified as winning the White House race with 304 electoral votes to Hillary Clinton’s 227. Mike Pence was certified as the next vice president

Several Democratic lawmakers tried to sideline the proceedings, objecting to the validity of the vote on the basis of what they called “voter suppression,” Russian interference in the election, and other factors.
Each time, Biden, who was presiding, rapped the gavel and cut them off because they did not have the necessary support for their objection from a U.S. senator.
“It is over,” Biden instructed Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., one of several who tried to lodge an objection. The chamber broke out in applause.

Credit to Biden on this, for keeping order and following the rule of law.

Yes, Biden was only doing his job. But when it comes to liberals, keeping order and following the rule of law...that’s, well, extraordinary.

Once or twice a year when Biden isn’t groping females of all ages, lying or doing something very stupid, he does something that is correct.

Rep. Jayapal represents the same district that (thankfully) retired Congressman Jim McDermott did...basically, Seattle and the surrounding area.

Ashamed for my state.

It was really over about 3:00 AM on November 9th.

Should have been over earlier, but the Media couldn’t dare face the reality of what was happening.

I really hate to have to say this, but I saw the last few minutes of this and I have to give Joe Biden credit where credit is due, he shut them down every time they tried and had a few protesters escorted out of the building.

The protesters were civilians in the gallery, Fox Business showed a couple being walked out by security.

So..it's official, and Biden actually did the right thing, at one point he just said "it's over".

Dear Washington,

America is coming, and they're bringing Donald J Trump.

Sheila Lee Jackson was entertaining to watch.

Slow Joe kept having to shut her down.

Trump’s win in the end received official certification.

Joint Session on C-SPAN lasted under an hour.

Democrats never learn.

Even DNI Clapper admitted the Russians didn’t change a single vote.

Democrats screwed themselves stupid in being unwilling to accept the election result.

Sucks to be them.

That picture always reminds me of Nancy Pelosi, what with the prominent overbite and all. Sort of a mix of the two disgusting hags.

Biden may not be the sharpest knife in the draw, but he has enough political sense to know when to fight and when not to. Trying to draw this out would have made the democrats look worse then they all ready are.

I couldn't count how many times, after Obama was elected, and Republicans were complaining about something he was doing, that I heard Democrats use the phrase - "elections have repercussions".

Well guess what Dems - elections have repercussions!!!

I think I might get a bumper sticker!
