Sorry about that headline. But since Democrats are so eager to abolish the Electoral College, I felt that someone needed to offer up a genuinely contrarian position to that argument. Lord knows the Republicans in Congress won’t do it. Mitch McConnell has now ordered Senate Republicans to not contest the fraudulent 2020 election. The good news is that McConnell has already lost that fight. It looks like we may be headed toward a first-ever, genuinely constitutional election in America, now that the popular vote is so hopelessly flawed and clearly fraudulent.
Just a day after I explained the strategy behind dueling electoral votes, everyone from Rush Limbaugh to Roll Call is suddenly talking about the Electoral College Act of 1887.
The 1886 presidential election between Rutherford B. Hayes and Samuel Tilden ended up being contested. Fraud in three states resulted in those states sending dueling sets of Republican and Democrat electors to Congress for the Electoral College vote. This resulted in a split contest where neither candidate had enough votes to win. Hayes and Tilden cut a deal behind closed doors and Tilden conceded.
In order to prevent this from ever happening again, the vague, hazily-written and never-before-used Electoral College Act of 1887 was passed the following year.
When the electoral votes are counted on January 6, 2021, it may or may not decide who the next President of the United States is. As I noted previously, the President of the Senate (Mike Pence) is about to be faced with an unprecedented decision. Pence will be handed dueling sets of electoral ballots from the states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico.
Those states were riddled with election fraud and yet were “called” for Joe Biden. Democrats appointed slates of Democrat electors who cast ballots for Biden – but Republicans in those states appointed Republican electors, who voted for Trump.
Pence cannot count both sets of votes for those seven states. He has to choose, and he has sole authority to choose under the Electoral College Act of 1887. Pence can discard the Republican ballots, count the Democrat ballots and elect Joe Biden. He can discard the Democrat ballots, count the Republican ballots and reelect Donald Trump and himself. Or, he can chuck both sets of ballots and throw the election back to Congress.
Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) has committed to challenging the votes of those seven states on the day when the Electoral College votes are counted. Since this is a rare event that involves both houses of Congress, he needs at least one Republican Senator to join him in challenging the disputed states’ votes. This appears to be why Mitch McConnell has ordered Senate Republicans to stand down and allow Joe Biden to steal the 2020 election. McConnell knows the rules and he knows what’s coming.
If you are of a mind to preserve the Republic, now would be a good time to call your Republican Senator(s) and urge them to challenge the disputed Electoral College votes. An easy way to reach them is by dialing the Senate switchboard at 202-224-3121.
What happens if one Senator and one Representative challenge the votes? It then goes to a full vote in the House and Senate. This would result in a split decision (hopefully). The Democrat-controlled House will vote to count the Democrat electors, and the Republican-controlled Senate would vote to count the Republican electors.
Under the laws of the Constitution, the presidential election would then fall to the states, with each state receiving just ONE vote. The 27 red states will vote for Trump and the 23 blue states will vote for Biden, and we finally have a resolution to the 2020 election that does not involve fraud or deceit. This is all perfectly legal, and the steps are laid out before us.
This is one of the peaceful methods of keeping the rightful winner of the 2020 election in office, which does not involve the use of the Insurrection Act, tanks in the streets, military tribunals and Netflix being taken off the internet for several days (total chaos!). We can sort out the fraud and arrest the guilty parties later. What’s important right now is preserving our system of free and fair elections. That cannot and will not happen if we allow the 2020 election to be stolen. America will be the laughingstock of the world if we allow Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to set foot in the White House under such a fraudulent pretense.
