    Pence is no doubt scheming with others behind the scenes. Neither the President nor patriots should trust him. He has likely worked against Trump since day 1, bringing in disloyal swamp creatures to the administration.

    i’d bet that after being terrified that he had to consider the evidence supporting bogus electoral votes, his lawyers advised him that all he had to do is what Chief Justice John “Yellowstreak” Roberts did – simply ignore the evidence, count the bogus votes to keep Democrats, the media, and the Deep State off his back.

    I believe that Pence doesn’t want this to come down to him and prefers that there be others involved in the outcome. I am glad to see that both of our senators have stepped up, but keep in mind that Trump has not played his hand yet. The swamp wanted him to concede so they could get rid of him, even if it meant for years of socialist policies under Biden. I think Trump’s plan has been to get the electors to vote on the 6th then during the rally reveal the fraud that occurred that no one wanted to investigate and said never occurred. Objecting to the electors would look like a good move to me too if I were a member of congress. Trump has been very successful while in office despite almost everyone working against him. He has shone a light on the workings of the Washington establishment and everything that is wrong with how our government works. I am looking forward to his efforts in his next term including cleaning house of the socialists and communists that are likely in the DOJ and FBI.
    BTW, the stands for the Biden inaugural parade have been taken down. I am sure the MSM will say it is due to an abundance of caution due to COVID.

    This list confirms what I have guessed in recent times. There are about 3 dozen patriots in the House and a dozen in the Senate and they all have an R after their names. There are no Democrat patriots. Never was so much to be done by so few.

    Sorry, but I am sceptical, and will hold my judgement until it actually happens. One thing I do know is I am done sending campaign donations.
    I am tired of the emails from the fund raisers calling me friend and insinuating guilt on my part. Then McConnell doing a 180 degree action that looks like capitulation to pure self interest. I hope for a new political party because I am done with all rinos period. They are Arlen Specter’s to me. The democrats are on borrowed time, Their hubberous is their down fall.

    I am so sick of the Republican Party that I will no longer accept the “hold your nose” strategy at election time. I will risk another option. If it fails, so be it. We take it to the streets. Now is the time for a Constitutional Conservative movement in this country, with new leaders and a party that the tens of millions of us can support. But, seems like there’s no leadership. Fixing the Republican Party is a chump’s game. Don’t fall for it.
