The coming storm of Jan. 6 and our ‘tainted’ Electoral College

To the Editor:
On January 6, Congress will meet to vote to certify the sealed results of the Electoral College.
On this same day, Pro-America and Pro-Trump supporters will be outside holding a massive rally that is intended to send the message to Congress that they will not support any vote cast while wide-spread election fraud has not been addressed and while rogue Democratically controlled states have not given a full accounting of their violations and how they affected the 2020 election.
Members of Congress will vote to certify the Electoral College count which will be chaired by the President of the Senate, who in this case is Vice President Mike Pence. At this point, both Democrat and Republican Congressmen normally vote (in a fair election) to confirm the votes of an untainted Electoral College, but this election has not been fair and has been fraught with wide-spread Democratically induced voter fraud as well as foreign interference. Under the 12th Amendment Mike Pence will have the authority to “count” and verify valid electors and is not required to count electors from contested elections despite what Facebook factcheckers tell you.
President Trump has met with numerous leaders in the House and in the Senate with a plan to counter the alleged corruption that Democrats have caused in this election. All of Congress should vote against the results from the Electoral College because the results cannot be trusted by the American people period, end of story. Republican congressmen and women especially, should vote against the Electoral outcome because if they vote for it, they are certifying that all voter fraud and crimes committed by the swing states are legitimate and thus good for all future elections. Any politician who votes to certify these crimes against our nation is voting for the death of democracy and needs to be run out of office and then held accountable.
Here is the kicker folks. If there is an objection to any of the electoral ballots by a congressman, the objection must be in writing and must be signed by a member of the House and a member of the Senate. The joint session will suspend and the House and Senate go into separate sessions to consider the objection. For the objection to be sustained, both chambers must agree to it by a simple majority vote. If both chambers do not both agree, the original electoral votes are counted.
There is no way to know which way these votes will turn out, but the point of all of this is that it places our Republican politicians on record as to whether they support the will of the voters and will not certify the election crimes being committed by other States, or they are complacent and condone what these other states are doing to negate your vote in this presidential election. It will also tell us if our elected officials are part of the cure or if they themselves are the disease. Do you know where your congressman or senator stands on this massively important issue? Do they support your vote or are they controlled by the D.C. swamp?
Some are billing this as a play by President Trump to see which Republicans truly have his back, others theorize that if martial law is declared then the Trump administration will know who the turncoats are among us. I believe that President Trump is using this as an opportunity to set the record straight so that the American people will know exactly who we can trust and who we should not trust going forward.
Mitch Mc Connell is asking senators not to sign with any objections coming from the Congress during this vote on January 6. This is a quote from the AP news about McConnell’s back room efforts to protect our senators from committing to President Trump and to give them cover so they can still fit in nicely in the D.C. swamp.
“On a GOP caucus call Tuesday, McConnell asked his fellow Republican senators not to join in any House objection, saying they would have to vote it down and it would be ‘ errible,’ according to the people familiar with the meeting.”
Mitch Mc Connell thinks it would be “terrible” for your senator to speak up and defend your vote. Is that what you want our Senators to do? Keep silent and just let other states dictate how we vote. What he is really saying is that he wants your Senator to run for the hills with him so they can protect themselves from any political fallout from Democrats and still get a paycheck when the Democratic smoke clears.
If you supported President Trump in the 2020 election and you want your congressmen and your senators to express your objection to other states controlling the outcome of your vote, then you need to contact them and demand that they object to the tainted Electoral Vote on January 6 and demand that they publicly state their position before the vote. The time to hold our elected officials accountable is now. Contact your congressmen and women and your senators today. You have taken a stand, now make your elected politicians take a stand that reflects why you voted for them in the first place. I hope you can make it to the rally in D.C. on January 6 and make enough noise that your congressman can hear your voice outside the chambers.
Here is their contact information. All have Facebook and Twitter accounts as well. Thanks for caring enough to read, please contact these folks and make sure they care about your vote and future elections.
