As many as 18 (at this writing, and possibly more) Republican Georgia state Senators have signed a letter to Vice President Pence, asking him to delay tomorrow’s scheduled counting and confirmation of electoral votes by Congress. They cite irregularities in the election that don’t “pass the smell test” and need to be investigated.

This probably won’t make any difference to tomorrow’s proceedings, but it’s one more in a growing pile of objections that Democrats and the media keep dismissing at their peril. Responding to all the suspicions of vote chicanery with “You’re wrong, you’re stupid, shut up!” is going to be as effective as trying to hide the smell of a dead fish by putting it under your sofa cushion.

As conservative talk show host Mark Davis writes, what is most likely to happen is that Joe Biden will become President. It doesn’t make me happy to repeat that, but it’s realistic.

And Redstate.com explains that much of what you’ve heard about the 12th Amendment is incorrect and the Vice President is extremely limited in what he can do.

However, if the vote is certified, it’s up to Biden and the Democrats whether or not he takes office under a cloud of suspicion that may never blow away.

What should happen, if the people who claim there’s “no evidence” of vote fraud really believe that, is that they should vote unanimously to comply with the request by Republicans in both Houses for a 10-day, transparent audit of the vote, to settle all questions once and for all. If the election was legitimate, then Biden can take office without an asterisk next to his name in the history books. It’s a solution that I suggested right after the election in an “open letter” to Biden, for which I got slammed in the media. But if he’d done it then, it would’ve saved a lot of time and trouble.

President Trump had to try to govern for four years with a large number of Democrats claiming he stole the 2016 election and was an “illegitimate President” (Hillary Clinton among them.)

They fought like cougars against everything he tried to do, using every resource in government, media and the courts to obstruct his agenda. If this is left to fester, Biden will face having to govern even more people with the same anger, only stronger, and they’ll actually have some reasons to believe it.

    I looked for QAnon on the web and evidently their website has been taken down.

    Trump was just trying to get the attention of the Congress and Antifa got in the crowd, then over threw the good people trying to make their voices heard. I think they have won. If the voting machines can be manipulated then we don't win another election. So why are people saying we'll get them in two years. I can see how we are getting them! To make matters worse most of the politicians just jumped the fence and joined the band wagon!

    Very sorry and disappointed, but Pence Showed his real character and the handshake with another man who transferred a coin Into Pence’s hand and Pence then put the coin into his right coat pocket and then he and Crazy Nancy shared an elbow bump screamed Pence is a traitor!

    The Bible says, "Do not be overcome by evil, but to overcome evil with good." Lord, show us the good that you would have us do. "The Lord himself goes before me and will be with me. He will never leave me or forsake me. Be not discouraged or dismayed. Be not afraid." " Rejoice always because His strength becomes perfect in my weakness."

    It seems to me that Biden's plea for unity is actually not only for the clueless but primarily for those who "have always voted Democratic/blue dog Dems". Loyalty is admirable but right is right, and wrong is wrong. If righteousness does not enter into political choices, we are playing a lazy, dirty game. It was Socrates, I think, that said "The unexamined position is not worth holding".

    Exactly what has to happen in order to enact the declaration of Independence? We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

    It passed time for this . The election was a complete fraud in most states, I am a WV pole worker and I know we went the books , no fraudulent votes in our state, so let’s start completely over , everyone must have a photo ID and their signature must match the voter registration books and NO Domenion vote counters and lots of cameras filming the votes being hand counted, no mail in ballots and military votes may vote on paper ballots and be hand delivered in a triple locked box with only one key to open outer lock and then we will know the true election and not a fraudulent one. And why I am here it is time for term limit for both house and senate and please start with Nancy and Chuck. They are trying to destroy the USA.

    I am totally disappointed in both parties, I think both parties are only looking out for themselves. We as Americans need to take our country back from career politicians, liars, crooks and anyone else who does not have our constitution seriously.

    Fake election, fake news, fake money, fake freedom, fake investigations, and possibly a fake pandemic. Maybe the only thing that is real is that it's all fake coming out of DC these days. My confidence in the system is dwindling.

It's all being censored. Lord God, have mercy on our nation. Give VPresident Pence strength, make him bold as a lion. Please do not give in to the pressure and intimidation of the left and of the rinos. Stand your ground!!! Stand for freedom!!!! Carole Sherman, Iowa

    I believe the election was stolen and the evil ones have been planning this for 4 years. Its a shame what could have been accomplished if the demorats would have worked with him. now they want us to not use the terms Father, Mother, brother, sister, son, daughter. Well it will b a cold day in h--- before it happen with me. Its a wonder the Lord doesn't strake them all dead. Murdering babies, not wanting to support Israel. Their day is coming and I don't think it will b long.

    Governor,
    Come hell or high water, I will never believe that Biden won. In my mind it's statistically not possible, but here we are in this nightmare. So now my husband and I will do what we did when he and Obama were in office. Everytime we hear his voice on TV or radio the channel will be changed. We respect the office , but not the man that will unfortunately be in it. Kamala can take a hike.

    Totally disgusted with your failure to support your president. You should be standing shoulder to shoulder with Ted Cruz. You were elected because of President Trump. Conservatives will remember your lack of support and you will pay the price, next election. I for one will talk you down every day.

    If Mike Pence Don't stand up for President Donald Trump He has to be part of the swamp and He says He's a Christian . If he don't stand for what is so obvious and right he needs to just call Himself a democrat

    it's easy to understand why they refuse to investigate it's because they know it was stolen.

    You disappoint me greatly, governor Huckabee by giving up and saying that biden will probably be president! Trump has said he “ will not concede and there was horribly huge fraud and corruption in the election” and you know that! The American people will not accept biden as president, period! You better decide who’s side you are on right now or risk the destain of the American people!
