“I STAND WITH PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP”
This is the President of the Senate, the plenary officer of tomorrow’s (1/06) Joint Session of Congress, speaking in Georgia last night (1/04): “I stand with President Donald Trump.. We all have our doubts about the last election… And I promise you come next Wednesday, we’ll have our day in Congress. We’ll hear the objections, we’ll hear the evidence…”
On Sunday (1/03), the first action of the 117th Congress, having just been sworn in, was to pass by voice vote this Concurrent Resolution. Let’s read it carefully (emphasis added):
“Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That the two Houses of Congress shall meet in the Hall of the House of Representatives on Wednesday, the 6th day of January 2021, at 1 o’clock post meridian, pursuant to the requirements of the Constitution and laws relating to the election of President and Vice President of the United States, and the President of the Senate shall be their Presiding Officer; that two tellers shall be previously appointed by the President of the Senate on the part of the Senate and two by the Speaker on the part of the House of Representatives, to whom shall be handed, as they are opened by the President of the Senate, all the certificates and papers purporting to be certificates of the electoral votes, which certificates and papers shall be opened, presented, and acted upon in the alphabetical order of the States, beginning with the letter “A”; and said tellers, having then read the same in the presence and hearing of the two Houses, shall make a list of the votes as they shall appear from said certificates; and the votes having been ascertained and counted in the manner and according to the rules by law provided, the result of the same shall be delivered to the President of the Senate, who shall thereupon announce the state of the vote, which announcement shall be deemed a sufficient declaration of the persons, if any, elected President and Vice President of the United States, and together with a list of the votes, be entered on the Journals of the two Houses.”
*That both slates of Democrat and GOP Electors from Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin will be “opened, presented, and acted upon” equally.
*That after all the objections and debate brought forth by a dozen or more GOP Senators and 140 or more GOP House members regarding the illegality of the Democrat slates in the states above, Mike Pence will announce “the state of the vote.”
He can then accept or deny the seven Dem slates, 82 EVs total. If the latter, Trump wins 232-222. But there is a third option. He can agree with the proposal of Ted Cruz and a dozen fellow Senators to:
*Postpone the election’s certification until an Electoral Commission conducts a 10-day Emergency Audit of the seven state’s returns,
*The legislatures evaluate the results of the audit in their respective states, and convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed.
This returns to the state legislatures their constitutional authority to certify electors, not the governor, courts, or bureaucrats which they illegally usurped. And before January 20.
I think this is the option Pence will choose tomorrow. Realize his decision is plenary – his and his alone, to which the Senators and Congressmen are but witnesses.
Word that he will so choose may have already been leaked, e.g.: Wisconsin Legislature Announces Resolution To Be Introduced on Thursday (1/07) Which Will Likely Decertify State and Award to President Trump.
What would be the point of doing this if Pence turns the election over to the Dems the day before?
Expect more legislatures to follow. POTUS is at 232. Any combination of 38 – say PA 20 + MI 16 + WI 10 – and he wins, legally, legitimately, constitutionally. Pence and Cruz will have saved America.
