How We Can Win the War Even if We Lose the Trump Battle January 6

At least 140 House Republicans and 20 or more Republican Senators plan to object to the official counting of the electoral college votes of the six fraud-riddled states (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin) at the joint Congressional session January 6. But their challenges could be defeated in the next step by failing to win a majority vote in the House and the Senate. The House still has a Democrat majority and though Republicans narrowly control the Senate, Majority Leader Mitch (The Turtle) McConnell has been poisoning Trump’s re-election by pressuring Senators to reject the challenges. We can depend on the usual Quislings – Senators Collins, Murkowski, Sasse, and of course Mittens Romney – to run screaming from their oaths to uphold the Constitution and the cause of free and fair elections.    

But even if we lose this battle, on January 6 we can win the war for fraud-free future elections and save our great Republic. It depends on how expertly our Senators and Representatives use the hours of debate they will have after each of their challenges to educate Americans on the massive election steal.  Most Americans haven’t seen the powerful presentations Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis made in many of the battleground states. Most Americans have been denied the truth by despicable Facebook and Twitter that restrict the reach of social media posts about the evidence, or block posts outright. Most Americans for weeks have been pummeled by lies from the leftstream media and even Fox.  Broadcasts and articles constantly insist voter fraud is a crazy conspiracy theory with “NO EVIDENCE“ promoted by a Hitler-clone dictator intent on destroying our “democracy.”  Their propaganda is relentless.

But January 6 the Senators and Representatives can use their ample time to present the actual and incredibly staggering Stop the Steal evidence to the world. The attention of the nation will be focused on the Joint Session. The millions of American voters watching the proof unspool in a slimy trail of corruption will be outraged at how their choice for president was simply erased.  The electoral vote challengers in the House and Senate must spotlight the facts from Peter Navarro’s solid research in his “Immaculate Deception” report because those facts will galvanize viewers into action. The fraud Navarro uncovers is simply undeniable and head-exploding: from ballots unchecked for signature verification, violating state election laws; to ballots run through tabulation machines multiple times;  to ballots cast by unregistered, moved-away or dead people; to “fake” ballots minus signature envelopes that should have been rejected; to the infamous Georgia video that shows huge boxes of ballots pulled out from underneath tables and surreptitiously counted when poll watchers had been instructed to leave.   

The Representatives and Senators must show this video, and make their evidentiary case with vigor, drama and urgency. They must ask Americans watching to immediately email and call their Congress people and demand the electoral votes from the contested states be rejected, not certified. People must urge their state delegation to support Senator Ted Cruz’s call for a thorough election audit.   Citizens must unleash a fierce wave of righteous outrage.  If enough citizens turn their anger into activism, when the Senate and House take the next step on January 6 and vote whether to uphold the challenges, we could see some surprising results.      

Even so, the truth is rapidly galloping into the national consciousness. Rasmussen reported on 11/20 that 75 percent of Republicans are convinced it is “very likely the Democrats stole the election” and 38 percent of Unaffiliateds and even 30 percent of Democrats agree – 47 percent of all voters. AND of course, Donald Trump is the MOST ADMIRED MAN IN AMERICA! So the electoral challengers on January 6 have a muscular foundation to build on. If they can awaken even a sliver of the 75-plus million patriots who voted for Donald Trump, as their voices rise so rises the future of fair elections.

If their voices demand changes in elections to ensure this travesty never happens again, we can avert the destruction of the Republic that will result if we can’t stop the steal. Since it’s now been proved that the states cannot be trusted as guardians of election fairness, these must be changes made by Congress and implemented on a national level. The Article I, Section 4 passage in the Constitution often quoted – “The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof” – which by the way was violated by many of the states – is followed by another “but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.”

These are the alterations in state law for which the liberty warriors must agitate and that Congress must pass by law:

  • Picture voter ID must be a national law for both in-person voting and registering to vote
  • Ballots cannot be mailed out without a written request from a registered voter
  • The signature on the ballot envelope must be matched with the original registered voter file signature
  • Voter rolls must be officially purged of ineligible voters (illegals, felons, under voting age, and dead) every two years or hefty fines will result

We must hammer, agitate, and/or primary our Senators and Representatives until these four changes are made by Congress. Or there will never be another reason to hold another election. Ever.
