Rep. Mel Brooks has already signaled that he’ll challenge the results in the House. No Senators have said the same, though many consider Ted Cruz or Rand Paul to be the best shots.
Mitch McConnell has made it clear he’ll brook no arguments, and I suspect anyone that does challenge the results will lose their committee assignments and other seniority ‘perks.’
Will those ‘threats’ be enough to keep all the GOP senators in line? We’ll find out in about 2 weeks.
Here in Montana, nearly 250 people have signed the petition urging Daines and Rosendale to challenge the results. I’m confident that both of those men are too afraid of McConnell’s ‘threats’ to do anything.
We’ll see what happens.
By the time all that is going on in D.C., our legislature will be in session in Helena.
One of their most important tasks is getting rid of the ability of local health boards to shut down their community’s economy, laying off thousands in the process.
Michigan’s legislature is doing this right now. With SB 857, the legislature is going to get rid of the 1945 ‘emergency powers’ law that Governor Whitmer is using to keep the state locked-down, thousands out of work, and businesses on the verge of closing permanently. Here’s a good article on this.
Already in Montana, our courts are going to hear a case challenging Bullock’s mask order and lockdown policy. The argument is that Bullock needed the legislature to put such an order forth, which didn’t happen.
In a couple of weeks Gianforte will become the governor with a veto-proof legislature.
If Bullock could put forth an order requiring masks and lockdowns without the legislature’s permission, then Gianforte can get rid of it just as easily.
But will he?
Will Gianforte keep the mask mandate in place, or will he follow the example of South Dakota, and allow individuals to make their own decisions?
Will Gianforte allow businesses to stay open as long as they want? Will he remove occupancy limits?
The general consensus around the state is that he will...but what if he doesn’t?
What’s the point of having a republican in the governor’s office if he’s just going to continue the same failed policies of the democrat before him?
I didn’t vote for that, and I think most Montanans didn’t, either.
On the national front, Trump has about a month left to drain the swamp. He did good getting rid of Bill Barr this week. Anyone that would have sat on Hunter Biden’s laptop for months, despite the overwhelming crimes it contained, shouldn’t be in government.
The Bidens, the Clintons, and Obama have just a month left of worry. If they can ride out this month, they won’t go to prison.
But does Trump have something up his sleeve? These people have jerked-him around for 4 years, and impeached him. Most have forgotten that. Trump hasn’t. Here’s a good article on this.
The Supreme Court wouldn’t hear the case because Roberts was afraid of the rioters. The mob is more powerful than our laws.
How long do you think the riotous mobs will give Biden...a month, a few weeks? The Democrats are already tearing themselves apart.
The moving vans have not arrived at the White House yet. Until they do, the Bidens, Clintons and Obama will be worried.
Two weeks until January and a month until inauguration. It’ll be interesting to see what happens during that time...and what doesn’t.
