Video: Counting of Electoral College Votes The House and Senate convened for a joint session
C-SPAN (video) ^ | 1/6/2017 | U.S. Congress Joint Session

Posted on 01/06/2017 6:12:30 PM PST by Republican Wildcat

It's the sequel 16 years in the making and even better than the original...after their last failed stint in 2001 to overturn an election with multiple bogus objections to the Electoral College Votes, the Congressional Golden Girls return in dramatic fashion with a strong supporting cast of fellow Congressmen and random protesters. Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Sheila Jackson Lee (D-CA) anchor the starring cast, with a stunning last second cameo performance from Maxine Waters (D-CA), one of the stars from the 2001 original.

Other notable appearances: Vice President Joe Biden forced to repeatedly rule on the nonsensical objections that were completely out of order with the House Speaker sitting stone faced trying desperately to avoid laughing at the nonsensical and repeated objections (which continued long after the tally had went well beyond 270 votes) and finally could no longer contain it and burst out laughing at them in the end, and a protestor screaming the preamble of the Constitution as he is dragged out of the chamber.

Sixteen years? They did this crap in 2004 too (noticing a pattern with congressional Democrats?), and that time, they actually got a U.S. Senator to sign on.

“Los Tres Mujeres Negras” It would be perfect if only Maxine had changed her last name to Lee.

“Who’s the crazy Texas CongressCritter wench?”

Looks like there’s a typo. Barbara Lee is the (RAT-$hit, Berkeley, CA), While Sheila Jackson Lee is the (RAT-$hit, TX). But sadly, the third moron Maxine Waters is from SoCal, so California has to “own” two of the three! Plus she looks like she’s been beaten with an ugly stick for fifty years or more!

For some reason I don’t remember that at all... So this is actually the Third Act for that group.

I’ll have to find an archive video of it sometime from 2004.

I was very surprised they did not have a Senator sign on - like Elizabeth Warren.

The “Tellers” had an interesting historical role in this.
They are:
Representative Gregg Harper (R-Mississippi)
Representative Robert Brady (D-Pennsylvania)
Senator Roy Blunt (R-Missouri)
Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minnesota)

I wonder how they were chosen???

Someone should tell Brady that it is the “Electoral College”, not the “Electorial College”.

And tell him that Hillary’s running mate was Tim, not Tom. /facepalm

I want to thank you for posting that. I enjoyed every minute. Even the buffoons entertained me as their communist agenda sunk into oblivion. It is my fervent desire that PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP KICK THEIR ASSES for 8 more years until they cry out for mercy to which the reply will be, “HELL NO”!!

The way I can remember which is which, if they aren’t pictured is:

Sheila Jackson Lee (TX)

And

Barbara “Commie” Lee (CA)

They are both total dingbats.

For once, Biden acted like an adult and did his country a service today.

All the usual horses asse’s were the main protesters.

They were obviously put up to it by the heads of the dem party. In other words, their white masters in the party using them to do the dirty work as if they were the dem party’s house negros.

Hilarious. Thanks for posting.

Objections were attempted to be raised at:
Alabama - (the Russians?)
Florida - (electors ineligible?)
Georgia - (long voting lines?)
Michigan - (voting machines?)
Mississippi - (voter suppression?)
North Carolina - 2 (voting rights?) plus (voter suppression?)
South Carolina - (unintelligible...)
West Virginia - (cut off before speaking...)
Wisconsin - (cut off before speaking...)
Wyoming - (won’t some senator please sign this?)

I guess I am a bit surprised that not one slime-ball representative
could find another slime-ball senator to sign-off on their objection.

IIRC, it was Barbara “the dwarf” Boxer, objecting to the results on theory that GWB’s victory in Ohio - by about 100,000 votes - was the result of voter fraud. Boxer was crying, carrying on like the lunatic she is. High-larious.

There was no attempted challenge to the certification of the electoral votes from Ohio.

I found the video archive on C-SPAN. The Joint Session was suspended and the Senators returned to the Senate chamber. Separate votes were held in the House and the Senate on the objection filed (both of which of course rejected the challenge to Ohio’s Electors). The Senators returned to the House chamber and a clerk announced the results of each vote from the Senate and the House rejecting the objection to their votes and the Ohio Electoral Votes were certified and they moved on.

I see Massachusetts was proudly represented in the moonbattery. Starting it all off, Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Havana). It looks like he got some sun at Fidel’s funeral.
