It’s Not Up to VP Pence: Sebastian Gorka (video, left), Newsmax

CS Commentary: You Tube is censoring certain videos, including the one we previously had in this spot, on Trump’s Road to Victory. Gorka expresses outrage at the inaction of most Republican Senators. The road to stop Congressional certification of Biden Electors is a difficult, uphill process, not likely for Trump (apart from some type of miracle). For the process of getting to a Contingent Election, see our recent article below, Trump Must Win. Gorka puts any responsibility for accepting fraudulent electors in the correct place – on the American people, the State Legislatures, and the US Congress, especially the GOP.

CS Commentary: The problem here, again, is generalities, not specifics. The general statements sound good for Trump supporters, but the specifics lead to a different conclusion – a Trump loss on Jan 6. See our article below, Trump Must Win.

Special Update, 1/06/21 – Trump Attorney Jay Sekulow Shuts Down Claims of Pence Authority Over Electors, The Hill

CS Commentary: From our reading of both the US Constitution and the Electoral Count Act of 1887, this would also be our view. On the other hand, we believe – contrary to this article and others – that there is latitude for how the Congressional procedure under the 1887 Act is handled relative to the dueling sets of electors.

The pertinent question is, “Can ‘certified’ Electors be considered ‘certified’ when they are negatively tainted by legitimate questions of Voter Fraud at multiple levels in multiple states – all of those States controlled by Democratic officials or anti-Trump Republican officials?” The 1887 procedure may not call for a unanimous vote on the ‘certified’ electors – it may call for a vote between the two sets of Electors.

If the procedure is handled this way, Electors could be set aside and Trump could win. Almost no one is talking or writing about this part of the 1887 Act.

Special Update, 1/06/21: Congress Approves Rules Governing Electoral Vote Challenge on January 6, Zachary Stieber, The Epoch Times

CS Commentary: Note a quote from the article: “That will trigger a withdrawal from the joint session and a two-hour debate, followed by votes in each chamber. Only with a majority vote from both the House and the Senate would a challenge be upheld, which even supporters find unlikely, considering Democrats who control the House and Senate Republican leadership, including McConnell, have expressed disapproval with the plan to object.” – But, is this correct? According to the Electoral Count Act of 1887 when there are two sets of electors a unanimous vote of both the House and Senate is needed to choose one of the sets. The question is whether the alternate set of Trump Electors will be considered valid. That is the line of the fight.  Also see, Special Update, 1/06/21 – Congress Adapts Rules Governing Jan 6 Procedure, Cheny/Zanona, Politico – Politico is notoriously liberal, so ignore the slant and focus on the good information provided. As we have been saying, there is only a small chance Trump wins Jan 6 because too many Republicans oppose him + the unclear nature of the 1887 Act procedure governing how to address dueling electors.

What Politico – and no one else we can find – addresses is the possibility that somehow Trump could pull this off because of the vague nature of the Act related to how to handle dueling electors. According to the Act, if Congress must vote to choose which electors to accept, there must be a unanimous vote to accept one set. Otherwise that state’s electors are to be ‘set aside.’

In this situation, Trump could win – if three to six State’s electors were set aside Trump could possibly have the majority of the remaining electors and win. But, only if Republicans were united in their vote and voted for the Trump electors over the Biden electors. With the Senate race in GA going to Democrats and other Trump Republicans in the House and Senate signaling they will not oppose Biden electors, this is now extremely unlikely. See our article above, What Happens? Trump Must Win for a full explanation of the options and how they may play out.

Explainer: Dueling Electors and the Upcoming Joint Session of Congress, Zachary Stieber, The Epoch Times

Quote: “Republicans have not been able to gain enough support to get the dueling electors certified by the top election official—usually the secretary of state—nor did the state legislatures exercise their constitutional right to take back the power to choose which candidate to give the electoral votes to…According to the Congressional Research Service, when dueling slates are received, members of Congress in the joint session consider the list when its from a different state authority than the certified list, and conduct a vote. Acceptance of either slate would then require a concurrent agreement in both the House and the Senate [emphasis CS].

The Immaculate Deception: 6 Degrees of Election Irregularities, Peter Navarro, Trump Economic Advisor

CS Commentary: America has been warned. If you are a public official who has failed to show courage and do your duty you will have no excuse and should be held responsible. Every American who fails to stand up and speak and act will have no excuse. From this day forward no one can excuse themselves or offer up any excuse. If you don’t act now – today – then you are part of the future guilty that let the American Republic slip into darkness and a black abyss. If you’re reading this and you think it sounds extreme go look in the mirror and say, ‘I am part of the problem. Wake up!’ (Yell the last part several times while you duck your face in a bucket of ice repeatedly.)

Republican Electors Cast Unofficial Challenge, Setting up Congressional Clash, Deanna Paul, WSJ

CS Commentary: The WSJ, like Fox News, is not what it used to be. Note the liberal slant of this article in the viewpoint, the structure of the sentences, and the people quoted – almost all liberal university law professors. There is no mention of the Electoral Count Act of 1887, which has precedent in the handling of the 2000 election controversy in Congress between Bush and Gore. Deanna Paul, the writer, was formerly a NYC prosecutor, then worked as a reporter for the Washington Post. Right.

Attorney Lin Wood Claims VP Pence Faces Treason Charges and Execution by Firing Squad, Joel B. Pollak, Breitbart

CS Commentary: The issue is a little more subtle here…it’s Lin Wood’s opinion….not sure he’s right, honestly…though Pence is a political coward for filing his counter-suit….but the Constitution’s language is simple – it does not necessarily mean to give the power to the VP, but the States….there are good opinions on both sides of the issue. Lin Wood’s ‘opinion’ is one of them…But, if Trump wins, Pence may have just killed his chance of becoming President.

Must Read – Power of Vice-President To Accept or Reject Electoral Votes Disputed, Petr Svab, The Epoch Times

CS Commentary: Good article that argues that the VP may indeed have precedent in form and function, to intercede and direct the Electoral Votes. Against him, however, is still modern day precedent and Al Gore’s supervision of the 2000 Election controversy as well as the 1876 Election and the Electoral Count Act of 1887. For more, see our coming article, Trump Will Have to Take It.

Giuliani Says Major Networks – including Fox News – Won’t Have Him On Anymore, Jack Phillips, The Epoch Times (For commentary on the facts in this article/video, see Red Box below)

Trump’s Routes to Victory as of 1/02/21

Trump still has a thin route to victory with all of the direct cases and appeals either before, or headed to, The Supreme Court. This needs to take place before January 6, but probably won’t. The route to victory becomes even more thin if a decision comes after January 6 – which is where pending cases are now docked.

Trump attorneys and supporters also make it appear that there is a route to victory through the State Legislatures before January 6. There is – if they could convince the State legislatures in three states, starting with just one, to meet and vote to re-certify Trump electors instead of Biden electors. This could reverse the election when Congress meets January 6. But there is very little time at this point for that to happen, and it probably will not.

So far, for a variety of reasons, State legislatures have met to certify alternate electors but have not reconvened full sessions to attempt to nullify the Democrat electors and re-certify Trump electors. This action would need a majority vote in a fully convened official session of the State legislature.

Why haven’t the State legislatures done this? The primary reason is probably because it is impossible. In fourteen states the Governor of the State has to approve a Special Session and many of the Governors are Democrats. In thirty-six states you either need two-thirds or three-fifths of the Legislature to approve a Special Session in a poll-vote.

At present, because of the present condition of Congress – without the State legislatures re-certifying – Trump’s path on January 6 in an Electoral Challenge is weak, probably to the point of failure. In our opinion, this is due to the cowardly and corrupt nature of certain Republicans. In a Challenge Republicans do not currently have the will – it would take a majority vote in the Senate, all of the Republicans to edge out the Dems – to nullify the electoral votes of States with two sets of presenting electors. 

Only one thing could possibly change this when Congress meets on January 6: a compelling presentation of voter fraud evidence that has not been presented or previously seen, or that is presented in a more compelling and persuasive fashion.

This likely means something major has to happen before January 6, the date the Supreme Court’s own Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 2000 called the date of ‘ultimate significance.’ After Congress accepts the Biden electoral majority, the election will be almost impossible to reverse – without major revelations of paramount significance. No sitting President would want to be put in such a situation, not even President Trump.

After January 6, and if Biden is confirmed by the Congress as the President-Elect, the only means Trump would have to reverse the election would be major revelations of a stunning nature – that is, news that would unite the nation in agreement around the issue of the election – and use of the Foreign Interference Executive Order + the Emergency Powers Act and/or The Insurrection Act. Use of these Executive Orders to reverse an election in the, defeated, Sitting President’s favor, would be unprecedented, controversial and would most likely result in chaos, violence, martial law and possible Civil War (Hear Steve Bannon’s comments in Video below).

Must See – What will Happen On January 6? Will VP Pence Accept Republican Electors? (video, right), Facts Matter With Roman Balmakov (Epoch Times)

CS Commentary: Part of video on election starts around 7:20. Great analysis if you omit the last 5 minutes…two isolated opinions on the 12th amendment will hold no weight with the Supreme Court.

How can that be said? Because (as we’ve written about on this site) the Electoral Count Act of 1887 addresses this very issue. The power is not given to the President of the Senate because it was recognized that he might be partisan. The 1887 Act therefore puts the weight on the States to act before Congress meets. Therefore, any question put to the Court will likely be decided in favor of the States.

VP Pence will therefore have little authority or precedent to choose non-certified Republican Electors over legally certified Democratic ones – even if it is suspected that they are not valid because of a false election (see next article below for more clarification). Suspicion is not the same as Court affirmed proof. The 2000 Election controversy was precedent. Al Gore followed the 1887 Act in his supervision of the count in Congress.

If Pence does not do the same he will be crucified by Dems and anti-Trump and wimpy moderate Republicans. It will not lead to Civil War. Why? Because the Dems would challenge the Electoral Count. For more, see our article above…What Happens? Trump Must Win.

Attorney Sydney Powell Files Lawsuit Against Georgia Governor and Sec. Of State For Election Fraud – Copy of Filing

Quote: “An analysis of the Dominion software system by a former US Military Intelligence expert concludes that the system and software have been accessible and were certainly compromised by rogue actors, such as Iran and China…The failure of the Dominion software “to meet the methods and processes for national standards for managing voting system problems and should not be accepted for use in a public election under any circumstances…where he recorded [Dominion Rep] Eric Coomer representing: “Don’t worry. Trump won’t win the election, we fixed that.”…This margin of victory in the election [in Georgia] for Mr. Biden was only 12,670 and cannot withstand most of these criticisms [relative to both mail-in ballots and voting system fraud] individually and certainly not in aggregate [CS Emphasis ours].”

CS Commentary: What is the standard of proof? ‘Preponderance of the evidence’ (civil) – not ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ (criminal). “The Georgia Supreme Court has made clear that Plaintiffs need not show how the [] voters would have voted if their [absentee] ballots had been regular. [] only had to show that there were enough irregular ballots to place in doubt the result.” Conclusion? “Georgia’s November 3, 2020 General Election remains under a pall of corruption and irregularity that reflects a pattern of the absence of mistake [emphasis CS]. At best, the evidence so far shows ignorance of the truth; at worst, it proves a knowing intent to defraud.”

What is ‘absence of mistake’? In this context, what the suit is saying is that the defendants being accused in the suit – the Governor, Secretary of State, etc. did not make a mistake – circumstances and witnesses show that they had to know they were placing the election in a place where fraud could easily be committed and the outcome would be changed.
