Democrats Whine About Election Certification Challenges
Democrats Whine About Election Certification Challenges
Democrats are whining about Ted Cruz and other Republicans challenging the results of the 2020 Election. They want everything to be signed, sealed, and delivered with zero concern for election integrity.
“A last-ditch effort by President Trump and his allies to overturn the election thrust Washington into chaos Saturday as a growing coalition of Republican senators announced plans to rebel against Senate leaders by seeking to block formal certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
The push to subvert the vote is all but certain to fail when Congress gathers in joint session Wednesday to count electoral college votes already certified by each state. Still, Trump is continuing to press Republican lawmakers to support his baseless claims of election fraud while calling on thousands of supporters to fill the streets of the nation’s capital on Wednesday in mass protest of his defeat.”
The latest move by Senator Ted Cruz in calling for an audit has sent the media and Democrats into a tizzy. We aren’t supposed to be concerned about election fraud. There is nothing to see here, move along scream the Democrats. The problem is, we all watched in real time as the media went to bat for Basement Joe Biden. We all watched in real time as the media on election night called it for Joe even as states such as Georgia decided to stop counting the votes! Very real issues of election irregularities and voter fraud have surfaced since election night. Furthermore, whether the media likes it or not, people are skeptical as Ted Cruz points out.
“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%).”
Our vote is our voice, and yet the Democrats don’t want that voice to be heard unless the vote goes THEIR way.
Except the Democrats don’t want that to happen. Thus they are whining and throwing fits. The current Democrat whine narrative: How DARE they challenge our chosen winner! How DARE they question the votes. This is unprecedented! This has never happened before!
In response to Ted Cruz's letter:— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) January 2, 2021
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be President and Vice President of the United States in 18 days.
With all due respect to my Republican colleagues in the Senate who are doing this: can you please get a grip? Election officials across the country, including Republican Governors, have certified these results. This is embarrassing. https://t.co/J4GY3TbIZX— Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) January 2, 2021
Democrats have spent the last few days yelling at Senator Josh Hawley for stepping up and challenging election irregularities.
Except that Democrats HAVE challenged results before in just the same manner. And no, I’m not talking about just the Al Gore debacle. I’m talking about election results more recently.
“In early 2005 specifically, Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., along with Rep. Stephanie Tubbs, D-Ohio, objected to Bush’s 2004 electoral votes in Ohio.
That forced the chambers to leave their joint session and debate separately for two hours on whether to reject Ohio’s electoral votes. Neither did. But the objection by Boxer and Tubbs serves as a modern precedent for what is likely to happen in Congress on Jan. 6.”
Dick Durbin, who then praised the move by Boxer and Tubbs, has slammed Senator Hawley for doing the same today.
The political equivalent of barking at the moon. This won’t be taken seriously, nor should it be. The American people made a decision on November 3rd and that decision must and will be honored and protected by the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. https://t.co/eTGjg3C7NL— Senator Dick Durbin (@SenatorDurbin) December 30, 2020
Because you know, that was different so shut up! Quite a number of Democrat Senators who are currently whining about Ted Cruz’s call for an audit are the very same Senators who thought it was quite ok to challenge the electoral college certification process in 2005 and 2017! Nancy Pelosi, who in 2005 raised questions of election integrity and issues with election systems before reluctantly voting to certify the Bush/Cheney election results, now wants everyone to just move along.
As Powerline points out, there were multiple people calling for challenges to the electoral college certifications in 2016 in order to somehow get Hillary into office. That was right and necessary according to our media and Democrat politicians then because Trump! Russia! RIGGED!
We were supposed to be ok with Democrats going after Ohio’s election issues in 2005, but we are supposed to ignore any election disparities across multiple states now – only because Trump. We are supposed to NOT be concerned about whether each state is truly following their own election laws and regulations right now. Biden is the winner so shut up and move along!
Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz aren’t engaging in the conspiracy theory aspects surrounding this election. No, they are concerned about having our VOICE, our VOTE count.
“I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on Jan. 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws,” Hawley said Wednesday. “And I cannot vote to certify without pointing out the unprecedented effort of mega corporations, including Facebook and Twitter, to interfere in this election, in support of Joe Biden. At the very least, Congress should investigate allegations of voter fraud and adopt measures to secure the integrity of our elections. But Congress has so far failed to act.”
Democrats are whining about this move as if it is completely and utterly unprecedented. It is a move that they’ve utilized in the past. I guess only Democrats are allowed to whine and do nothing about the integrity of our elections these days.
