The Joint Session of Congress reconvened after the shooting, and after a six hour recess. Electoral vote counting resumed through the wee hours until 4:30 am, January 7th Vice President Pence announced our next President.

Mr. Biden is to be sworn in on January 20th.

Did Congress fail 80 million Americans?

We learned it takes two people to object to the electoral vote in each state contested. One from the House and one from the Senate.

Rep. Paul Gosar finished-up objecting to the count for Arizona when Congress reconvened with the support of Sen. Ted Cruz. Here’s how Congress voted:

Arizona

Senators who voted in favor of the objection: 6 to 93 that weren’t

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas)
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.)
Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.)
Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.)
Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.)
Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.)

House vote: 121 in favor of the objection to 303 that weren’t

121 – ALL REPUBLICANS

Then there were 7 that didn’t vote:

Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R-Fla.)
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas)
Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas)
Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.)
Rep. Young Kim (R-Calif.)
Rep. Michelle Steel (R-Calif.)
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.)

Turning our attention now to Pennsylvania:

Senators who voted in favor of the objection: 7-92

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas)
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.)
Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.)
Sen. Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.)
Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.)
Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.)
Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.)

House vote: 138-282

138 – ALL REPUBLICANS

House members who didn’t vote:

Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R-Fla.)
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas)
Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.)
Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas)
Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.)
Rep. David Joyce (R-Ohio)
Rep. Jacob LaTurner (R-Kan.)
Rep. David Scott (D-Ga.)
Rep. Michelle Steel (R-Calif.)
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.)

Expecting objections out of Michigan and Nevada, NOT ONE SENATOR WOULD SUPPORT IT.

Let’s say Trump’s legal team is successful in proving vote election fraud

  • by machines that were tampered and recalibrated
  • by counting dead voters
  • by counting duplicates
  • by ballot stuffing
  • by preventing observers their right to watch
  • by losing and shredding ballots
  • in addition to interference by foreign countries

Doesn’t it just make sense and isn’t it time that to overcome any potential fraudulent voting we need to take that first big step and require Voter ID?

And then, shouldn’t those guilty of stealing the election be indicted and prosecuted?
