According to White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, over one hundred members of the House of Representatives plan on objecting to the electoral college votes during the January 6th joint session of Congress.

“We’re now at well over 100 House members and a dozen Senators ready to stand up for election integrity and object to certification. It’s time to fight back,” Meadows wrote in a tweet over the weekend.

According to the most recent tally, forty five representatives have publicly committed to objecting during the joint session. Eleven senators announced earlier Saturday they would object, joining Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.).

“The forgotten men and women are speaking out and Washington D.C. is waking up,” Meadows wrote in another tweet.

Representative Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) stated late last week that one hundred and forty one Republican House members have announced plans to object.

Republican Missouri Representatives Jason Smith, Billy Long, Sam Graves, and Vicky Hartzler said they will object to “protect the integrity of each vote cast by every law-abiding Missourian.” They alleged some states, such as Georgia and Nevada, failed to follow their own election laws.

Republican Pennsylvania Representatives Guy Reschenthaler, Dan Meuser, Glenn Thompson, Mike Kelly, Lloyd Smucker, John Joyce, and Fred Keller also said they would challenge votes.

“Unfortunately, the many unlawful actions undertaken by the Pennsylvania Governor’s office, the Secretary of State, and what has been described as a rogue Pennsylvania Supreme Court exceeded and circumvented the state legislature’s clear constitutional authority,” they remarked in a joint statement.

Representatives Clay Higgins (R-La.), Joe Wilson (R-S.C.), Randy Weber (R-Texas) Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), John Rutherford (R-Fla.), Chuck Fleischmann (R-Tenn.), Kevin Hern (R-Okla.), William Timmons (R-S.C.), and Rep.-elects Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) and Kat Cammack (R-Fla.)— have also made remarks in recent days that they are going to object to the Electoral College outcome.

Objections to the Electoral College votes have to be in writing and need support from at least one member of each congressional chamber. If they meet the requirement, they trigger a withdrawal from the joint session of Congress, a two-hour debate, and a vote in each House.

A simple majority would uphold an objection, nullifying a state’s electoral votes, or potentially leading to the votes going to President Trump instead of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol

Order Must be Restored

Published

on

On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests  escalated at the United States Capitol.

The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. 

The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:

The New York Young Republican Club consistently condemned lawlessness and disorder throughout 2020 perpetrated by Radical Left BLM and Antifa activists. We called out the Fake News Media and Democrat politicians who inculcated a culture of acceptance for “mostly peaceful protestors” who violated private property rights and destroyed livelihoods.

Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.

We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.

U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly. 

On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
