“First of all, I don’t hear the Democrats making such outrageous claims when they were the ones who were objecting during the electoral college certification in 2004 and 2016. Democrats have done this for years to raise concerns about election integrity,” Hawley said on Fox News. “Now when Republicans and 74 million Americans have concerns about election integrity, we are supposed to sit down and shut up? Somebody has to stand up here.”

As Democrats and some in the media accuse Republicans objecting to the Electoral College as “treasonous” and “seditious” it’s important to recall that it’s been done at least three times in the last 20 years... all by Democrats‼️— Ben Goldey (@BenGoldey) December 31, 2020
If Democrats, the corporate media, and foreign interests can steal a presidential election, they can steal any congressional or gubernatorial election, easily. If a thief can rob Fort Knox with ease, any bank on Main Street will be child’s play.
If they can weaponize the CIA, FBI, IRS, and DOJ to target their political enemies, without punishment, why won’t they double down next time? For the left, crime does pay.
In brief: If senators follow Hawley's lead and take a stand against the fraudulently generated Electoral College votes, at that point, under the Twelfth Amendment, there is no elected president, and the matter returns not to the full House, but to a single representative from each state. And so, Trump wins.
The PA lawmakers have done their job (so far). Now what is the next step? These lawmakers need to recall the slate of electors and tell the House and Senate that the election results cannot be ascertained in their state. They should probably hold a vote that overturns the certification of the awful election. The bottom line is that the slate of electors is not permitted to vote on Jan. 6.
This reasonable and fair action may have a domino effect on the other embattled states, whose lawmakers should follow suit. If this happens, Trump will win in the Electoral College. (I had erroneously stated that if no one reaches 270 votes, then the House decides.) Instead, the Twelfth Amendment states: "[T]he votes shall then be counted[.] ... The person having the greatest number of votes for President, shall be the President[.]"
But will PA's Legislature, where the real power resides, do this? And will the other embattled states do the same? If so, then Trump (rightly) wins: 232 to 222. This is the best, constitutionally speaking, and probably the only real option remaining for Trump.
Janine Eveler, elections director at the Cobb County Board of Elections and Registration, had allegedly restricted Republican poll watchers. After the local Republican Party filed a lawsuit alongside the pro-Trump PAC Committee to Defend the President, Eveler signed a consent decree guaranteeing poll watchers’ access.
And facing criticism from across the country, Georgia Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner, Stacey Abrams' sister, reverses her controversial voter eligibility ruling, allowing up to 4000 voters to be removed from the roles after moving elsewhere (PM).
At Am Spec, Rabbi Fisher asks Can Georgians Be Foolish Enough to Vote for a Hate-Filled Lying Phony Like Warnock? "It’s hard to believe given his record of anti-Semitism, anti-Americanism, and more." It's also hard to underestimate the gullibility of American voters.
