The other day, I was sitting on my back porch thinking about people that I have known in my life that I thought to be good people that ended up doing me wrong.
There was always one constant with these people, they always seemed to have me do more for them than they did for me. Added to that, they treated these things I would do as if they were expectations on the level of the sun rising tomorrow morning.
Those kinds of people are folks that you do not need in your life. We certainly don’t need them in government, and we certainly don’t need them making any major decisions.
The fight for Election Integrity brewing in the Joint Session of Congress Jan. 6th is showing us who needs our support and who needs to go. Another GOP turncoat has revealed himself today as US Senator Rob Portman representing Ohio took a stand against the millions of Americans who voted for President Donald Trump, only to have the election hopelessly compromised by irregularities and allegations of outright fraud.
“The process in Congress on January 6 is based on a federal law that allows Congress to consider objections to a state’s certification of its electors. If both a member of the House and a member of the Senate object to a state’s certification of electors, it requires a Congressional vote on whether to reject that state’s electors. This vote has only happened twice in the 133 years since Congress enacted this statute, and Congress has never voted to uphold a challenge. It is an extreme remedy because, counter to the Constitution, it allows Congress to substitute its judgment for the judgment of the voters, and for the judgment of the states that certified the results.”
Senator Portman has unilaterally declared in this statement that the 12th Amendment of the US Constitution to be a “federal law” and a remedy “counter to the Constitution”. Pro-Tip for the Turncoat Senator: Once Ratified an Amendment becomes PART OF The Constitution! So, NO Senator! The “process” you’re referring to is directly REQUIRED by the US Constitution in the event of a controversy over invalid election results.
The 12th Amendment reads:
“The person having the greatest number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President.“
