Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) announced on Wednesday that he will vote against certifying electoral votes next week, joining a group of House Republicans who are planning to oppose the federal rubber-stamping of grotesque and unprecedented fraud.
“Following both the 2004 and 2016 elections, Democrats in Congress objected during the certification of electoral votes in order to raise concerns about election integrity,” Hawley explained in a statement.
“They were praised by Democratic leadership and the media when they did. And they were entitled to do so. But now those of us concerned about the integrity of this election are entitled to do the same,” he added.
Hawley is refusing to go along with the Big Lie that there was no serious and systemic election fraud that occurred in last month’s presidential election.
“I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on January 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws. And I cannot vote to certify without pointing out the unprecedented effort of mega corporations, including Facebook and Twitter, to interfere in this election, in support of Joe Biden,” Hawley said.
“At the very least, I will follow the same practice Democrat members of Congress have in years past and object during the certification process on January 6 to raise these critical issues,” he added.

Big League Politics has reported on how states are sending alternative slates of electors in the hopes that the fraudulent election will be overturned:
Michigan Trump supporters are going on the record to make it clear that they did in fact seat an alternative slate of electors earlier today, despite being obstructed by GOP legislative leaders in league with Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
One of the pro-Trump electors, 11th District Republican Party chairwoman Meshawn Maddock, explained the surreal situation in a Facebook post.
“Today the delegation of 16 Michigan Republican Electors convened to cast their ballots for President Trump and send their pledges to Washington!” Maddock announced.
“We sent Republican Electors alongside the Democrat Electors just to be safe despite being blocked from entering the Capitol,” she added.
She noted that there is a historical precedent for this type of behavior, and the Trump movement is acting within the bounds of the law with these moves.
“Sending more than one slate of electors is not unheard of,” Maddock said. “It’s our duty to the people of Michigan and to the U.S. Constitution to send another slate of electors if the election is in controversy or dispute—and clearly it is.”
Big League Politics reached out to Meshawn’s husband, Matt, a Republican state representative from Milford, who wanted to stress their display was not meant to interrupt anything that happened with the pro-Biden electors.
“These Republican electors for Trump were sent just to be safe,” Maddock said, explaining that the pro-Trump slate of electors will serve as a “life raft” in case ongoing fraud investigations impact the vote results.
Hawley’s statement makes it clear there will be legislators in both chambers who challenge the vote on Jan. 6. Droves of pro-Trump forces from across the nation will be demonstrating in the Capitol on that day as well.
PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
