Pelosi Ready To Throw Down: House speaker is preparing Dems for a fight

With the election just 5 weeks away, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not wasting any time.

With the election just 5 weeks away, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not wasting any time.

The Speaker has begun rallying her Democratic troops in the event of a tied Electoral College, which would send the fate of the presidency to the House of Representatives, according to the New York Post.

If neither Trump nor Biden secure an outright win, the House would then decide who becomes president through a process that would allow each of the 50 state delegations one vote.

In other words, who receives the vote is determined by an internal tally of each lawmaker in the delegation, meaning the presidency may not be decided by the party that controls the House itself, but by one that controls more state delegations in the chamber.

And while an Electoral College tie hasn’t happened since 1876, with all that is going on in the country, it is not out of the question for it to occur in this year’s historic election.

Currently, Republicans control 26 state delegations to the Democrats’ 22.

And, in the wake of the ongoing Supreme Court fight between Senate Republicans and Democrats, a battle inside the House would be brutal.

With this, Pelosi is aware and on the move.

In a letter to House Democrats on Sunday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) urged them to understand just how much is at stake come November 3.

“The Constitution says that a candidate must receive a majority of the state delegations to win,” Pelosi wrote. “We must achieve that majority of delegations or keep the Republicans from doing so.”

In this highly intense scenario, a single-seat could determine whether a delegation is Democratic or Republican, potentially setting off ferocious legal battles in the states to pick winners, according to a report by Politico, via the New York Post.

Nancy Pelosi has been actively pursuing the issue with her leadership team, and House Democrats have said they are aware of the concerns.

Meanwhile, according to the New York Post, Trump talked about the possibility of the House deciding the election during a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday.

“And I don’t want to end up in the Supreme Court and I don’t want to go back to Congress either, even though we have an advantage if we go back to Congress – does everyone understand that?” Trump said. “I think it’s 26 to 22 or something because it’s counted one vote per state, so we actually have an advantage. Oh, they’re going to be thrilled to hear that.”

With the Senate at war over voting on Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, the coronavirus pandemic continuing to run rampant, and the civil unrest in several cities throughout the U.S, a battle in the House would be the icing on top of a very messy cake.

But, it can’t be ruled out just yet.

    Pelosi should be in jail along with her buddy hillary. I’m sure they were both in on the collision scandal together.

Obtained Emails on Election Night Heighten Georgia’s Mysterious Ballot-Counting

Georgia Voting

Just the News has obtained internal emails from election workers in Georgia’s Fulton County has increased confusion and mystery regarding the November presidential elections. As a reminder, Just the News writes, “Uncertainty arose regarding the ballot processing operation at Fulton County’s State Farm Arena on and after Election Night, when ballot-scanning apparently continued even after most election workers had reportedly been sent home.”

Affidavits from Election Night poll workers state they were directed by officials to stop working around 10:30 pm on November 3rd, and return at 8:30 am the next day. Multiple local and national media outlets reported absentee ballot counting stopped around 10:30 pm and cited county spokeswoman Regina Waller.

In truth, counting at the State Farm Arena continued past 10:30 pm. Waller herself told JTN in December that contrary to media reports, many citing her, that she had “stated to all media…that although several workers were released to go home, a small team remained behind to assist with scanning ballots.”

Through an open records request, JTN obtained a few suspect emails, in which Waller does in fact state counting ended at around 10:30 pm. The email, timestamped at 10:22 pm on Nov. 3, addressed to several county officials as well as State Farm Arena spokesman Garin Narain stated, “the workers in the Absentee Ballot Processing area will get started again at 8 am tomorrow.”

When reached for comment via email, Waller only stated the email “was in response to a question received asking when all workers would return” but did not respond to a request to see the original email to which she was responding. So then why did she keep a “small” team behind?

Another email from Fulton County Interagency Affairs Manager Fran Phillips-Calhoun timestamped at 11:15 pm that same night, almost an hour after Waller said counting stopped, Phillips-Calhoun’s email may suggest otherwise. “FYI-[the Secretary of State’s office] just sort of threw the team under the bus stating that ‘we had a great day, but we decided to throw in the towel for the night even though the public is waiting…’ on the results.”

Phillips-Calhoun’s email was sent to Waller and several other county staffers. Phillips-Calhoun did not respond to requests for comment, nor did the message specify which statement from the Secretary of State’s office she was referring to.

Pro-Trump super PAC rebrands to ‘stop Joe’s corruption, socialist agenda, liberalism’

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President.

A super PAC that heavily supported President Trump during the 2020 presidential campaign is changing its direction to focus on the new administration. 

The Committee to Defend the President officially rebranded itself on Wednesday as Joe Biden takes office. Its mission is now aimed at taking down the incoming democrat. 

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President. 

During the 2020 campaign cycle, the PAC reportedly raised more than $16 million to support Trump and his “America First policy agenda, BizPacReview reports. The group will now focus on “undermining” Biden’s agenda. 

“NEW NAME. SAME MISSION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT & STOP JOE’s Corruption…Socialist Agenda…Liberalism,” the website says. 

The committee told Fox News it plans to match its 2020 fundraising during the 2022 election cycle, and pledges a seven-figure investment “to expose the Biden-Harris administration and other Democrats for their left-wing politics.” 

The group will push new ads, opposition research, social media engagement, and “other innovative tactics.” 

The PAC’s “new mission is to save Americans from the radical, dangerous policies of the Biden-Harris administration,” Ted Harvey, the group’s chairman, said. 

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will work around the clock to reverse the unprecedented progress of the Trump presidency,” Harvey added. 

“From day one, we simply cannot let that happen. It is our patriotic duty to work around the clock and stop them – before the damage done to America becomes irreversible,” he said. 

But, this isn’t the first time the PAC has switched gears. 

Founded in 2013, it was originally called the Stop Hillary Pac, according to BizPacReview.
