    Vice President Mike Pence told President Trump on Tuesday that he did not believe he had the power to block congressional certification of Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory in the presidential election despite Mr. Trump’s baseless insistence that he did, people briefed on the conversation said. Mr. Pence’s message, delivered during his weekly lunch with the president, came hours after Mr. Trump further turned up the public pressure on the vice president to do his bidding when Congress convenes Wednesday in a joint session to ratify Mr. Biden’s Electoral College win. “The Vice President has the power to reject fraudulently...

We also believe other Democrat-led COVID-19 policies have enriched the wealthy while crushing middle class small business owners (some 160,000 restaurants may close). ......

    "The text of the Constitution is clear. States select electors. Congress does not. Accordingly, our path forward is also clear. We mush respect the states' authority here," the statement said. "Though doing so may frustrate or immediate political objectives, we have sworn an oath to promote the Constitution above our policy goals." The seven Republicans began their statement by expressing outrage at the "significant abuses in our election system" through "reckless" adoption of mail-in ballots leading up to the November election. Trump and several other congressional leaders have complained of voter fraud tied to the widespread use of mail-in ballots...

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper blasted Republicans on his Sunday talking head show State of the Union for organizing a challenge to Biden electors for Wednesday’s joint session of Congress to certify the votes of the Electoral College. Tapper threw out words like sedition, coup and traitors to describe the effort by Republicans to ensure the 2020 presidential election was legitimate. Tapper said he had invited all twelve Republican senators who have said they will challenge Biden electors and that all had declined or did not respond when asked to appear on State of the Union. Tapper cited a Civil War...

    Rep. Louie Gohmert has filed a new document in the lawsuit brought on by him and other Republicans to stop the Democrats from stealing the 2020 election. The new filing argues that Vice President Mike Pence has the authority to count Republican electors in contested states, or ignore the electors from those states all together. "Under the Constitution, he has the authority to conduct that proceeding as he sees fit,” Gohmert argues. “He may count elector votes certified by a state’s executive, or he can prefer a competing slate of duly qualified electors. He may ignore all electors from a...

    Those who have said they will object include U.S. Reps. Lance Gooden, R-Terrell, Brian Babin, R-Woodville, Randy Weber, R-Pearland, and Louie Gohmert, R-Tyler. Gohmert recently sued Vice President Mike Pence in an effort to prevent some states' votes from being certified. Gooden sent a letter to Texas U.S. Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, both Republicans, urging them to object to the certifications. "In light of the numerous reports of fraud and lingering questions hovering over the validity of the election results across the country, I cannot in good conscience vote to certify these results," the letter states. "There must...

    Hawley is the first Senate Republican to do so Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., on Wednesday became the first Republican senator to publicly say he will object to the certification of the presidential election results when a joint session of Congress meets in one week to formally certify President-elect Joe Biden's 306-232 Electoral College victory over President Trump. Roughly a dozen Trump supporters in the House – led by Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama – have said they will challenge the slate of electors from six battleground states where Biden narrowly edged Trump in last month's election. But the challenge of...

    Here’s a suggested communication from y’all fortunate enough to have a non-Progressive US Senator “representing your interests”. BTW, I live in Ca so there is no sense in my trying this since the two most worthless twits in the Senate were put there by my neighbors. Identify your Senator; RINO, Independent, or real conservative; and send them a missive emphasizing the following: if not so much as a single Senator stands up and formally objects (along with expected Representatives) to the electors, you all go down. Pick lots if you must. We know that regardless of the outcome, the Senator...

    Lawyers representing Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Arizona’s 11 GOP electors disclosed in a court filing Tuesday that Vice President Pence rejected their request to join their attempt to subvert the results of the presidential election. Gohmert and the electors filed suit against Pence on Monday in an attempt to argue that the vice president has sole authority to determine which presidential electors Congress will count when it certifies the results of the election. The far-fetched suit essentially asks the court to grant Pence the authority on Jan. 6 to overrule the results in swing states such as Arizona and...

    When the Supreme Court of Chief Justice John Roberts rejected the lawsuit of the state of Texas and other states that said the election rules in contested battleground states like Pennsylvania were unconstitutionally written, SCOTUS ruled that it could not prove Texas ot its citizens suffered harm by the processes by which another state selects electors and writes election rules. This of course is nonsense. Supreme Court Justices are like field goal kickers. They have one job. In the case of SCOTUS, it is to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.

    GP via The Western Journal ^ | December 24, 2020 | William J. Olson & Patrick M. McSweeny
    In refusing to hear Texas v. Pennsylvania, the U.S. Supreme Court abdicated its constitutional duty to resolve a real and substantial controversy among states that was properly brought as an original action in that Court. As a result, the Court has come under intense criticism for having evaded the most important inter-state constitutional case brought to it in many decades, if not ever. However, even in its Order dismissing the case, the Supreme Court identified how another challenge could be brought successfully — by a different plaintiff. This paper explains that legal strategy. But first we focus on the errors...
