More thoughts on the day here are my Patreon channel.
At the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, Benjamin Franklin famously said, "We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately."
On reading President Trump's tweet of this morning (above), on this day that Congress meets to deal with the challenges to the Electoral College vote, hanging came to mind -- hanging by thread. In seems we are hanging by one.
But thrilling things have been happening in these united states. More than 100 state legislators have signed onto letters to Congress asking that they delay the certification process until election irregularities can be resolved in the contested states.
For example, as Just the News reports:
"We write to ask you to comply with our reasonable request to afford our nation more time to properly review the 2020 election by postponing the January 6th opening and counting of the electoral votes for at least 10 days, affording our respective bodies to meet, investigate, and as a body vote on certification or decertification of the election," one letter to Pence signed by 88 state Republican legislators read. "This action can be completed prior to the inauguration date, as required by the Constitution."
Among or in additional to the group reported on above, Pennsylvania state senators yesterday wrote to Leaders McConnell and McCarthy declaring that a majority of Pennsylvania state senate now believe, due to numerous election irregularities and flouted election laws, that Pennsylvania's 20 electors should not have been certified by the Secretary of State for Biden.
See below for their letter asking that Congress delay ceritification "to allow due process as we pursue election integrity in our Commonwealth."
As law professor John Eastman put it to the StopTheSteal crowd moments ago: "All we are demanding of Vice President Pence is this afternoon at 1 o'clock he let the legislatures of the state look into this so we get to the bottom of it and let the American people know whether we have control of the direction of our government or not."
