Dozen senators to protest electoral college results (NONE named Tillis or Burr)
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is doing yeoman’s work to line up support for Wednesday’s showdown on Capitol Hill:
[…] On Saturday, several GOP senators announced that they, too, will “reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified’ (the statutory requisite), unless and until that emergency 10-day audit is completed.”
“The 2020 election, however, featured unprecedented allegations of voter fraud, violations and lax enforcement of election law, and other voting irregularities,” they said.
“Voter fraud has posed a persistent challenge in our elections, although its breadth and scope are disputed. By any measure, the allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election exceed any in our lifetimes,” they added.
Sens. Ron Johnson (R-WI), James Lankford (R-OK), Steve Daines (R-MT), John Kennedy (R-LA), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), and Mike Braun (R-IN), and Sens.-Elect Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), and Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) are joining Cruz in the effort. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) also announced last week that he would object to Electoral College votes on January 6. […]
Trump won our state twice. Senators are meant to represent the wishes of their voters. What’s the holdup?
We knew Burr would pull a disappearing act until 2022. Remember, he still has a possible investigation bearing down on him. But, Tillis? A man who has yet to reach or surpass the 50 percent mark in polling thinks he is some kind of political kingpin in North Carolina. He can apparently do WHATEVER he wants without consequence. The argument for supporting him in 2014 and 2020? HE’S BETTER THAN THE OTHER ONES.
It was less about reelecting an “outstanding senator” and more about giving Trump some help. Yet, here we are at the first opportunity to help Trump. And Tillis is NOWHERE to be found.
Those of us with common sense tried to tell you nose-holders in 2014 and 2020 what was going to happen if he made it to DC. You didn’t listen, and our predictions are sadly coming true.

I highly suspect others ‘followed’ Hawley (the 1st and lone one for days) b/c they saw the angst, the masses coming to DC on the 6th, the outright disgust publicly of the $trillions going across the globe vs the paltry $600 for We The Taxpayer, the unmasking of all these fake conservatives, GOP (esp McConnell) and finally have had enough….Yrs back, they would have remained, hidden, masked and biz as usual. NOT this time. The election fraud, Biden/Harris walk into the WH as it played it, Ga being on full display for the world to see corruption, Barr/Durham, allowing Comey, Strzok, Page, Weisman, et als WALK….the 4Y treatment of Trump/family/supporters and there are people foaming at the mouth, literally. The shenanigans are over. GOP can’t hide their being nothing more than their Dem counterparts, friends, buddies.
That’s part of it, but it’s also 2024 presidential politics. Some candidates are moving to ensure they have the Trump vote in their corner. Ted Cruz, the smartest of the bunch gets this and while I believe he’s doing this for the right reasons, not all his reasons are altruistic, I.e., I think he’s thinking about 2024.
that is if we still have the USA in 2024 not sure it will last that long
100% support your premise. Don’t doubt that one iota. Spot on!
Additionally, the avg working/middle class have seen they cannot and will not ever have a seat at the table. Their interests are irrelevant with GOP/Dems. Trump tried to restore better working/mid class qualities bringing back jobs/tech/corps from overseas and dealing with China, tariffs. Few in either Party gave one dang about that cause their back pockets were lined from those same sources. How does a $174k job create, produce a $millionaire?
The avg American related to Trump and was led to believe he was working for them, quite contrary to what occurs in DC/Raleigh. Those same masses saw to what degrees the defeat of Trump became necessary, some legal and some very illegal. They are taking it personal. That’s my take.
The Washington Swamp is totally bipartisan. Republicans are just as deep in the murky waters as the Democrats. Always have been, always will be. Do not be fooled–even by our own NC representatives.
Call the offices of Burr and Tillis. Let staffers know they are tainted by their bosses’ traitorous actions. Staffers often enter politics or lobbies later and have more influence than many expect.
