Your prayers are being answered!
Frankly I didn’t think it was possible to find this many brave Senators willing to buck the Democrats and their own Republican leadership. You might think it shouldn’t be so hard to buck Mitch McConnell in light of the glaring election steal, but these Senators (a few of them newly elected) will see that McConnell will find ways large and small to retaliate against them in the coming year(s).
For us, who believe in America and the Constitution that guides us, these twelve, so far, are the leaders of America first.
The new faction of GOP lawmakers includes Sens. Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.), Mike Braun (Ind.), Cruz (Texas), Steve Daines (Mont.), Ron Johnson (Wis.), John Kennedy (La.) and James Lankford (Okla.), as well as Sen.-elects Bill Hagerty (Tenn.), Cynthia Lummis (Wyo.), Roger Marshall (Kan.) and Tommy Tuberville (Ala.).
If one of these is your Senator, thank him or her.
If your Senator is one of those Republicans who have already said they are with McConnell remember them!
Here The Hill tells us that Senator Mitt Romney of Utah is lashing out against Hawley, Cruz et al.
If nothing else comes out of January 6th, we are going to have a very clear idea of who is for and who is against the MAGA movement. Mitch wanted to avoid that, but it looks like it is too late!
Romney: Plan to challenge election ‘egregious ploy’ that ‘dangerously threatens’ country
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Saturday offered blistering criticism of a plan by at least 12 Republican senators to challenge the results of the election next week, warning that they “imperil” public trust.
“The egregious ploy to reject electors may enhance the political ambition of some, but dangerously threatens our Democratic Republic. The congressional power to reject electors is reserved for the most extreme and unusual circumstances. These are far from it,” Romney said in a statement.
Romney had previously told reporters Friday that objecting during Wednesday’s joint session, where Congress will formally count the Electoral College vote, would help “spread the false rumor that somehow the election was stolen.”
Romney says the courts have already decided that there was no election fraud!
“My fellow Senator Ted Cruz and the co-signers of his statement argue that rejection of electors or an election audit directed by Congress would restore trust in the election. Nonsense. … Members of Congress who would substitute their own partisan judgement for that of the courts do not enhance public trust, they imperil it,” Romney added.
Romney, the only GOP senator who voted for one of the articles of impeachment against Trump last year, is the latest GOP senator to formally weigh in after Cruz and 10 other GOP senators, or senators-elect, announced that they would support challenging the election results.
Toomey said the “evidence is overwhelming that Joe Biden won this election.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) previously urged Republican senators to not join an effort by House conservatives to object, warning that it would only force a politically tough vote that won’t change the outcome of the election.
We will have a list!
By “politically tough vote” he means that the Republicans can’t win it with defectors like Toomey, Murkowski and himself who would side with the Dems, but because we, the upwards of 80 million Trump voters, will know who is willing to fight for us and who isn’t.
In addition to those I just mentioned who want Biden installed in the White House, we previously mentioned South Dakota’s John Thune.
And how on earth did you Nebraskans elect Ben Sasse, a Never Trumper from the very beginning?
Which side is your Republican Senator on? Where are you: Lindsey Graham? Marco Rubio? Rick Scott? Rand Paul? Mike Lee? Chuck Grassley? Susan Collins? Tom Cotton? Tim Scott? Shelley Moore Capito?
Some media outlets report that 140 or so House Members will object and when I see a list I’ll post it.
Tomorrow, Monday morning, begin calling all of your Senators and House Members and tell them (Democrat or Republican) what you think.
