WHEN IT COMES TO THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, ALL EYES ON JANUARY 6
Julio Gonzalez, M.D., J.D.
On Monday, the Electoral College selected the next President of the United States. According to the mainstream media, this procedure has sealed the election of former Vice President Joe Biden to President.
Not so fast. Like so many things the mainstream media are reporting, what they are telling you is only part of the story. . . of course, the part that they want you to hear.
In point of fact, there was a very important development to Monday's events the press is not reporting as well as procedural wrangling that appear almost certain to take place.
First, to Monday's developments. On Monday, the Electoral College did indeed cast 306 votes in favor of Biden and 232 for President Donald J. Trump. However, seven states, Arizona, Nevada, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, and New Mexico registered alternate Republican votes to their official tally. The presence of these alternate votes is significant because it signals each state's mistrust of the official results of their elections, but try finding any report of that in the mainstream media.
Procedurally, certifying an alternate set of votes allows Congress added flexibility when it actually sits to count results of the Electoral College, and there is precedent for exercising such discretion. In 1960, with Richard Nixon presiding, Congress opted to select the Democrat electors from Hawaii even though the Republicans were originally seated. The move handed the presidency to the Democratic candidate, John F. Kennedy.
This brings us to January 6, the last and likely final, definitive date of the 2020 presidential election. On that day, per the requirements set forth in the Constitution, Congress will sit in a joint session under the leadership of the President of the Senate, in this case Vice President Mike Pence. At that time, Pence will open the sealed votes sent to him by the various states to count them. Ostensibly, the results will show that Biden received 306 electoral votes; that is unless someone objects. An objection to the validity of a state's votes by any member of Congress, with a second, will trigger closed sessions for each chamber where the members will attempt to resolve the dispute. If no agreement is reached, then the question of who becomes President goes to the House where the Republicans hold a 30-20 majority by state.
The responsibility for choosing the Vice President will fall upon the Senate where each senator will have one vote. Bear in mind that the run-off election in Georgia is being held on January 5 and will likely not be called in time for the new senators to be sworn in. Thus, the Senate, on January 6, will likely have a 50-48 Republican majority with Mike Pence standing by in case a Republican defects. Georgia will be unrepresented.
Of course, the events of January 6 cannot be considered in isolation. Numerous events will transpire between here and that date, some of which have already played out. On Monday, the same day that the Electoral College met, the forensic examination of the Antrim County voting machine data in Michigan was released after being temporarily sealed under court order. The results showed an error rate of 68.05%. According to Allied Security Operations Group, the organization conducting the investigation, this finding represents "a significant and fatal error in security and election integrity" orders higher than the "allowable election error rate established by the Federal Election Commission . . . of on 1 in 250,000 ballots (0.0008%)." Ostensibly, such massive inaccuracies in the tabulation of votes would nullify the election, at least in Antrim County.
Additionally, recall that the case on the constitutionality of the Pennsylvania vote is still being actively disputed under that state's judicial system. That case will make its way to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court where the pro-Biden position will be upheld. Its ruling will then trigger an appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States where, this time, the Court will not be able to hide under the lack-of-standing cloak. Moreover, in Wisconsin, there are 200,000 illegally cast votes per the Wisconsin Supreme Court. These legal proceedings can lead to any of these state's votes being reversed or nullified.
Additionally, according to a very detailed explanation by Congressman Matt Sealy, there are avenues through which the Democratic candidate would be disqualified (if he or she were directly complicit in the fraud) and through the activation of the Insurrection Act (in case of foreign interference on the election was found in a report to the President due on December 18).
All these possibilies suggest the following for January 6. Congress will meet for a joint session. As the votes are being counted, the Texas coalition will object to the results of the Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, and Wisconsin election results. The member objecting will get a second and the House and Senate will meet in separate chambers. Those deliberations, although founded on election fraud and injustice, will be guided by politics; highly partisan politics where the Republicans hold the overwhelming advantage.
Ultimately, the results of those deliberations hinge on two things: the strength of the factual analysis before Congress (the proof) and the mood of the American people; which is why the press is doing everything in its power to keep us in the dark and to make us believe that a Trump reelection is a fantasy.
