What Exactly is Going to Happen on January 6th?
While supporters of Donald Trump are hoping for objections to electoral college votes in Congress on January 6, there’s also a big rally planned, and it could be the biggest tailgater in history! That’s because the Mayor thinks he’s dealing with a crowd that’s incapable of eating. Nevertheless, the turnout Wednesday is expected to be impressive, if based only on support the President received during his campaign!
Trump still finds Twitter his virtual home …
This Tale Isn’t Over,
Some Say Not Nearly
Lara Trump, wife of the President’s son, Eric, and Trump campaign advisor, talked recently with Gina Loudon on America’s Voice News. And snide reporters at Yahoo (Sam Matthews and Kate Murphy) think “Trump’s most ardent supporters are clinging to what is almost certainly a fantasy of overturning the results of the election in Congress.” But Trump supporters won’t be staying home to be disappointed!
“The president is calling on us to come back to Washington on January 6th for a big protest,” reads a flyer published on Women for America First’s website, trumpmarch.com, and Gemima McEvoy (sic) with Forbes said last week “Though it doesn’t appear any large-scale protests were in the works prior to Trump’s tweet, his supporters quickly moved to organize.”
McEvoy’s personal, editorial-within-a-news-story-conclusion: “… it is almost certain the GOP challengers would not be successful.” But Trump’s campaign advisor says “Is there hope? Absolutely there is! The reality is the founders of this country set up a process for a time such as this.”
In a partial transcript published by Gateway Pundit, Lara explains “if two House members object to the vote for Joe Biden, just two, then everybody takes a break. They split up then the Senate and the House divide. They go debate and then they ultimately have to vote to decide the outcome of this election.”
Twitter Is Alive!
The President enjoys having nearly 90-million Twitter followers, and they’ve morphed from silent to just plain old “majority.”
Since the play in Congress requires an objection to force a vote, The Epoch Times has a rundown of Republican members of Congress promising to be on board in support of the President. “On Wednesday, Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) said he will join the effort, which is being led by Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.). President Donald Trump spoke with Brooks and several other Republican House members earlier this month and backs their effort,” and “Rep.-elect Ronny Jackson (R-Texas) said Tuesday he will also object.” The Gateway Pundit tells us “Missouri (Republican) Senator Josh Hawley announced Wednesday he will object to the certification process on Jan. 6th.”
It may be a “Hail Flutie” play, but, well, I was there! I was a senior at BC in 1984, when Doug Flutie hit his friend, wide receiver Gerard Phelan, in the end zone with seconds to go, to make sports history and another cover of Sports Illustrated. The tailgaters went nuts! The Hail Mary pass is not a new thing (and it’s always an exciting surprise!).
Neither is the tailgate party!
Since the NFL has decided to collectively kneel for virtue, Trump supporters, and maybe a few sports fans will be packing lunches and polishing chrome for Wednesday’s big event, a tailgater I think BC fans would be proud of! The crowd is hoping to witness and support a very big, significant miracle surprise!
And while, as you know, I strive in my writing to keep things clean, the only spoiler alert I envision at the very end of this episode, if the Trump campaign were to pull this thing off, is evocative, yes … telling and powerful, yes … but not for the faint of heart or the little ones – wait for it! – it’ll be the look on Nancy Pelosi’s face!
