WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), Steve Daines (R-Mont.), John Kennedy (R-La.), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), and Mike Braun (R-Ind.), and Senators-Elect Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.), and Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) issued the following statement in advance of the Electoral College certification process on January 6, 2021:

“America is a Republic whose leaders are chosen in democratic elections. Those elections, in turn, must comply with the Constitution and with federal and state law.

“When the voters fairly decide an election, pursuant to the rule of law, the losing candidate should acknowledge and respect the legitimacy of that election. And, if the voters choose to elect a new office-holder, our Nation should have a peaceful transfer of power.

“The election of 2020, like the election of 2016, was hard fought and, in many swing states, narrowly decided. The 2020 election, however, featured unprecedented allegations of voter fraud, violations and lax enforcement of election law, and other voting irregularities.

“Voter fraud has posed a persistent challenge in our elections, although its breadth and scope are disputed. By any measure, the allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election exceed any in our lifetimes.

“And those allegations are not believed just by one individual candidate. Instead, they are widespread. Reuters/Ipsos polling, tragically, shows that 39% of Americans believe ‘the election was rigged.’ That belief is held by Republicans (67%), Democrats (17%), and Independents (31%).

“Some Members of Congress disagree with that assessment, as do many members of the media.

“But, whether or not our elected officials or journalists believe it, that deep distrust of our democratic processes will not magically disappear. It should concern us all. And it poses an ongoing threat to the legitimacy of any subsequent administrations.

“Ideally, the courts would have heard evidence and resolved these claims of serious election fraud. Twice, the Supreme Court had the opportunity to do so; twice, the Court declined.

“On January 6, it is incumbent on Congress to vote on whether to certify the 2020 election results. That vote is the lone constitutional power remaining to consider and force resolution of the multiple allegations of serious voter fraud.

“At that quadrennial joint session, there is long precedent of Democratic Members of Congress raising objections to presidential election results, as they did in 1969, 2001, 2005, and 2017. And, in both 1969 and 2005, a Democratic Senator joined with a Democratic House Member in forcing votes in both houses on whether to accept the presidential electors being challenged.

“The most direct precedent on this question arose in 1877, following serious allegations of fraud and illegal conduct in the Hayes-Tilden presidential race. Specifically, the elections in three states-Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina-were alleged to have been conducted illegally.

“In 1877, Congress did not ignore those allegations, nor did the media simply dismiss those raising them as radicals trying to undermine democracy. Instead, Congress appointed an Electoral Commission-consisting of five Senators, five House Members, and five Supreme Court Justices-to consider and resolve the disputed returns.

“We should follow that precedent. To wit, Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states. Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed.

“Accordingly, we intend to vote on January 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified’ (the statutory requisite), unless and until that emergency 10-day audit is completed.

“We are not naïve. We fully expect most if not all Democrats, and perhaps more than a few Republicans, to vote otherwise. But support of election integrity should not be a partisan issue. A fair and credible audit-conducted expeditiously and completed well before January 20-would dramatically improve Americans’ faith in our electoral process and would significantly enhance the legitimacy of whoever becomes our next President. We owe that to the People.

“These are matters worthy of the Congress, and entrusted to us to defend. We do not take this action lightly. We are acting not to thwart the democratic process, but rather to protect it. And every one of us should act together to ensure that the election was lawfully conducted under the Constitution and to do everything we can to restore faith in our Democracy.””

  1. “Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their party,”
    Patrick Henry

    And especially country.

  2. I read a lot and The Last Refuge warns us to take notice; this is just a ploy.

    New political party…come soon. I’m ready.

  3. JayJay.
    Not sure I agree.
    I believe Cruz is serious.

    Wells: This sounds sketchy.
    He was one of the good guys.

  5. AND,
    ………”PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY” is the KNOT HEAD DEMOCRATIC political life style. Even when they are HOPELESSLY CAUGHT they tell the world PROVE YOUR ALLEGATIONS which in reality translates to “GO TO HELL.” The Democrats are the world’s master WORD TWISTERS. They are taught how to lie from the day they utter their first words. They feel no shame, and will murder their own in a heartbeat to cover their own asses. Jimmy Hoffa was a classic DEMOCRAT. He was shut down by his own standards. In the Hoffa world you beat the hell out of people, destroy their property, or if nothing works you erase them from the living. Finally he received a dose of his own medicine. THIS IS THE SORT OF PEOPLE WE ARE UP AGAINST. THE ONLY WAY TO DEAL WITH SUCH TRASH IS BY USING THEIR OWN TACTICS AGAINST THEM. PUT KNOTS ON THEIR HEADS, BREAK THEIR ARMS, SMASH THEIR FACES, ETC.

  6. CW…….
    ……..JUST WONDERING……..ANEURYSM OR WAS IT THE HOFFA TREATMENT.!!!!

  7. YEP,
    ………IN THE HOFFA WORLD THE GOON SQUADS WERE NEVER UNEMPLOYED.

  8. AND.
    ……….in the DEMOCRATIC WORLD SUCH FOLKS, are seen as BUSINESS EMISSARIES.

  9. Jay Jay…….
    ………will a new political party materialize, or will GOD do a SODOM AND GOMORRAH IN US?

  10. THOUGHT……..
    ……….did the DEMOCRATIC business reps visit Seth Rich?

  11. AND NOW………
    ……..it is beginning to look as though today’s young people do not care much about decency. Almost everywhere we look all we see, and hear is young people of all colors, waving their fists in the air, screaming expletives, defacing, and/or destroying other folks property, looting and burning buildings, living like animals on the streets, and having drug fogged minds, etc. It is clear that America is in free fall with respect to MORALITY. During WW2 it was our young people who SAVED America. Today it appears as though our young people want to DESTROY America.

  12. CW..hope you are right about Cruz. I like him.
    .
    Question here: can a bank close a checking account of deceased without the spouse’s consent?
    I managed to get the first $500 of VA disability Thursday morning and went for second $500 Friday morning and account closed.
    G died at lunch time Tuesday.

  13. AND,
    ……….far too many of todays young people think that they should have EVERYTHING FOR FREE…….and if America refuses to hand them EVERYTHING FOR FREE they decide to DESTROY what in some cases their own families worked hard to build. This is a psychosis among some of our youngsters. Sadly it is spreading fast!!!!!

  14. AND
    ……..”.around ,and around the mulberry bush the monkey chased the weasel”= Democratic politicians !!!!!

  15. Jay Jay…….
    ……in Indiana any balance goes into a death “hold”. Here a certified copy of the death certificate is required to allow a bank to release death hold funds. If the account was in joint tenancy you should not have a problem withdrawing funds.

  16. HEY fhl,
    ……..missing your comments big time. I had grown accustomed to reading what you have to say. C’MON BACK !!!!

  17. Thanks os88…no, I am not on that account. I plan to open a checking account Monday to receive G’s SS check and of course, lose mine.
    Only problem I have is the life insurance was direct withdrawal.
    Maybe the closing of an account flags a person and the company notifies the holder of the life insurance??

  18. JayJay.
    Cruz gained my respect after the contentious 2016 primaries & election with
    his solid support for Trump & Constitution.

  19. This is likely to go to US Supreme court. Don’t trust weasel Roberts.
