Senator Josh Hawley to join House GOP objections to electoral vote count

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) announced on Twitter his decision to join House Republicans in objecting to the certification of electoral votes in a joint session of Congress on January 6th. Dozens of House members have already committed, but Hawley is the first Senator to commit to the controversial position. 

Hawley said that he could not vote to certify because some states did not follow their own laws:

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, a vocal critic, said that the behavior of social media giants also gave him a reason to object:

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.

Critical of the election results, Hawley said that Congress should investigate election fraud. He pointed out that Democrats have done the same thing in past elections.

I will follow the same practice Democrat members of Congress have in years past and object during the certification process on Jan. 6 to raise these critical issues.”

Leading the effort to object in the House, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) explained the strategy of objecting to certification of the electoral vote: “The law is very clear, the House of Representatives in combination with the United States Senate has the lawful authority to accept or reject Electoral College vote submissions from states that have such flawed election systems that they’re not worthy of our trust.”

If certification of the electoral votes failed in the joint session of Congress, the presidential election would then be determined in the House of Representatives in a “contingent election.”

Bizarrely, Walmart tweeted on Hawley’s decision, calling Hawley a “sore” loser. “Go ahead. Get your 2 hour debate. #soreloser.”

Hawley responded swiftly to Walmart’s criticism and touched a sore spot at the same time pointing to Walmart’s labor practices. He said, “Now that you’ve insulted 75 million Americans, will you at least apologize for using slave labor? Or maybe you’d like to apologize for the pathetic wages you pay your workers as you drive mom and pop stores out of business.”

According to Newsweek, Walmart’s senior manager of national media relations blamed a social media underling for the tweet and issued an apology to Senator Hawley. “The tweet was mistakenly posted by a member of our social media team who intended to publish this comment to their personal account. We have removed the post and have no intention of commenting on the subject of certifying the Electoral College. We apologize to Senator Hawley for this error and any confusion about our position.”

  1. THANK YOU JOSH, I AGREE WITH YOU 100% I HAVE NO CASH SO I CANNOT PAY FOR MY THOUGHTS BUT ICAN PRAY AND I DO ALL THE TIME OUR CONTRY IS IN BIG DANGER AND WE NEED ALL THE HELP WE CAN GET. THANK YOU.

    1. This just MIGHT avoid a CIVIL WAR if all of the Republicans in DC grow a BACKBONE ! THIS IS THE ONLY THING that will SAVE AMERICA as we have known it ! ITS TIME we FIX all of what is going on in the USA, starting with education and continuing all the way to completing the Border Wall. JOE did not win the election, a 5 year old child knows that, first thing is to close down CNN, MSNBC, YAHOO, and Silicone Valley!!!

      1. i’d say the first thing you really need to do is start treating blm and antifa for what they are . a terrorist army invading are country. they should be shot on sight…

        1. I agree with you 100% ! We need to kill them like they are killing our cops & our people period & getting away with their crimes! They are nothing but murderous scum !

      2. 100% correct. Then get independent panel of three forensic CPA’s to review EVERY member of congress’s taxes AND where their wealth comes from for past 10 years. Don’t like that quit.

      3. DD, you are so very right, we need more Republican senators to join Sen Hawley in objecting to the electoral college votes!!!!

    2. thank you I totally 100 percent agree these elections were 1000 percent fraud in all battleground States there were no way all ballots belong to BIDEN overnight and beyond none from TRUMP!!!!!!

    3. God is bigger than the evil.one .I am not American and I keep praying that what God said is happening even if you cannot see .Faith is the substance of things hoped for.We declare what God has decreed that Donald J Trump is the President of the USA for four more years.We do not doubt.

    4. There is way too much evidence of fraud to simply ignore it.
      Unbelievable the depth of corruption in this country, and the fact that the people we trusted to govern us have turned out to be lying, self-centered, crooks, willing to sell out the entire country for personal gain.
      If this fraud is allowed to prevail,………… ……..
      LORD HAVE MERCY ON US .
      I Pray You have the courage to do the Right and Just Thing .
      Let’s pray V.P. Pence has the courage to do the right and just thing.
      God is watching everything. He doesn’t sleep. Ever.
      Thank you .
      You can send this to your Reps .

    5. Josh can’t hear you, you need to contact his office and tell them and if you have a Republican Senator, ask them to stand with Josh Hawley because of now it is just him. There is strength in numbers the more that stand for the American people the better it looks to others! Thank you

  2. It is difficult to understand why some of our “strong”, long-term conservatives are not involved in this process. Donald Trump supported them; he is worthy of their loyalty. For shame!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Thank you for standing up for 75 million plus & Trump won election in landslide. If my 2 Senator’s don’t stand with you I’ll never vote for or give money! Ted Cruz or Cornyn. I’m afraid they are both corrupted & working for National Chamber of Commerce and China money Globalist. I pray Trump is in for 4 more years & drain the swamp. Mitch McConnell , Linsey Graham need out 1st Traders & Treason cover up.

  3. It is to little , to late, and very meaningless! One should always speak the truth, but one should not always speak(or in your case offer a lame retraction)!

    1. The truth is the election was stolen from President Trump! Thanks to election fraud by the Dems it will be a long time before people believe our elections are fair & honest!

      1. IMO, I don’t think we ever shall. Just as we’ll never believe the FBI, DOJ, CIA, SCOTUS, judiciary in any state, etc., etc.. They have destroyed themselves.

        God bless Sen. Hawley ~ our prayers are with him and the caravans heading to DC for Jan.6, 2021 support for OUR PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT Trump.
        #STOPTHESTEAL

  4. If Walmart knows which member of their media team wrote this comment – they should be identified and fired immediately.

  5. All of this should be a warning to Americans to be aware of everything going on. State laws were ignored or changed without authority! No one was providing real security at polling or vote counting facilities which allowed thugs to take over the vote counting. Carefully placed judges to control the hiding of the cheating. A decades tested jerk with failing brain and no campaigning wins election with votes generated from flash drives that disappear after tallies. Voting machines and software provided by a company owned by Chinese, controlled by Democrat politicians family members, connected to internet in violation of laws…what gives here.. how many crooks are we dealing with anyway. We need to be on guard with an army to protect our nation from commie treasonous SOBs that are ready to steal our freedoms and country.

  6. Good for Sen. Hawley. Other Republican senators need to step up to the plate. Same for House members. Fraud is fraud. The late Sen. Barry Goldwater once said around 1972 “if there is a smell, we need to get rid of it…”. We all need to say our prayers since the USA is in big trouble. Supposedly, US merchants (Lowes, Home Depot, etc.) began cancelling US factory orders and ordered more crap from china for sale in the USA. This needs to stop and huge import duties levied on chinese crap by executive order… And Section 230 of the Communications act (which allows internet censoring) needs to go by exec order if Congress won’t step up to the plate…

    1. Thank you! You all need to step up and back our President! How can people not believe that the election wasn’t a fraud??? Biden didn’t do hardly any campaigning because he knew he didn’t have to, and when he did very few showed up!! Trump had 15000 to 20000 at all his rallies! If it weren’t for covid it would have been thousands more, myself included! Back our President and give us 4 more years! God bless us. And happy new year!

  7. I believe that in certain states, Pennsylvania being one of them that the election was compromised by people who wanted to make sure that Joe Biden got the most votes. I believe that there were a lot of false ballots that were allowed and probably ballots that were changed. I believe there was also ballot interference in Arizona, in Georgia and In California. I firmly believe that this election should be called an illegal election and those states deleted from the count.

  8. Only one senator wants a honest, and fair election? Republicans are going to be in a lot of trouble going forward.

    1. After conceding China Joe should be arrested, given a fair trial, and put in jail for a long time for his multiple crimes!

      1. He should be arrested for election fraud, he knew all about the fraud and condoned it, as it was in his favor. this whole thing is a coup against the president of the U.S., This is treason, hang him high.

    2. Walmart (and other merchants) should be slammed with 200 per cent (or higher) import duties on each item imported from China and paid upfront before each item leaves the boat. Best thing to happen would be a blanket US order to turn all those boats laden with chinese made crap around and sent back to china without docking at ANY US port….

  9. Senator Hawley, you make me glad I live in Missouri! I believe this election is/was a total joke. Keep working to drain the swamp.

  10. Thank you Senator Josh Hawley for standing up for us and going by the laws not just the laws you prefer. Please do your best to make things right and make sure the winner stays in office. We all know that Trump should still be the President and that there has been way to much illegal things done to get him out of office. Please make it right. Thank you,
    Barbara Szabo

  11. I have found just ONE senator that is a Republican that will get my money and support. Anyone of them that do not standup almost 75 Million AMERICAN can Kiss my A$$ when their time is up. They will be premiered and will be out of a JOB. If they think for ne minute we will stand for this corruption they had better think again. As far as the big corporations go the best way to hit them is in the wallet. Dump them all they have out lived their usefulness a long time ago.

  12. I am equally thankful that Senator Hawley is taking the stand against voter fraud
    All we Patriots want is to know our votes counted without any fraud involved.
    I hope other Patriots will follow suit. God protect those who stand up for this plan to right our Republic in this manner.

  13. The main part of the Supreme Court’s job is OVERSIGHT, and if someone or some state is violating the constitution, then the court should step in, whether there is a complaint or brief filed in a lower court or the high court directly. If the court is not doing this, then the court is not doing the due diligence it is suppose to do, to protect the constitution. And if the court is not going to do its job, then it is up to we the people to do the job, and if we have to do the job then we just as well fire the court, we are the only ones that can. It makes no difference if a judge is conservative or liberal if the judge does not follow the constitution. The constitution was not put there to protect the administration, the legislature, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, from the government period, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow. When the government does not want to follow, then we the people have the right and the power to change or remove the government. I think that the court gets so tongue tied with the literal meaning of the law that it forgets what the most important part of its job is. OVERSIGHT.

    Since officials in a number of states have taken it upon themselves to make laws with out the legislative bodies in those states, that the constitution gives the legislative bodies the power to do. They are ignoring the constitution, and need to be reigned in. It is past time for the SCROTUS to do its due diligence, and step in, if the SCROTUS does not wish to do so, then we the people will have to do the job of the court, and we will not need the court.
    Liberals think that they can change the laws just by wishing it, and that is wrong. That is the way kings, queens, tyrants, and dictators rule. and that is why our forefathers wrote the constitution, to keep the corrupt from getting in power in government. That is why we have come to the point of needing to set term limits and to remove immunity that protects those that would try to abuse their position by creating greater transparency in the government.

    Just like they did with the Hunter Biden scandal, the fake news and the media, are covering up what states are doing to hide the evidence. It is not only in the so-called battle ground states. The governors and judges, and election officials in these states, are violating the law and the constitution of the United States, by making laws illegally, and suppressing the evidence, by refusing to allow ballots, and machines to be investigated. As much as I hate to say this the Supreme Court is condoning this behavior, by not enforcing the constitution. This is their job, to protect the constitution by enforcing it. The Supreme Courts job of over site does not end because a case is not filed in a lower court. There is nothing in the constitution that says the Supreme Court it’s self cannot call on the DOJ or Superior Court to take action on such matters, and for it not to do so is negligence. As I have said before and will repeat.

    The constitution was not put there to protect the legislature, the administration, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, from the government, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow.
    ———————————————————————————————————————
    Liberals think that they can change the laws just by wishing it, and that is wrong. That is the way kings, queens, tyrants, and dictators rule.
    WE DON’T NEED MORE GOVERNMENT, WE NEED TO CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT WE HAVE.
    ———————————————————————————————————————
    U.S. Code Section 242 of Title 18, Deprivation of rights under color of law, makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
    For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties.
    Some states have gotten the idea that they can just change laws because they want to. However that is not the case, when a state becomes a state they sign on to the constitution and the bill of rights, and all of the laws contained with in the constitution. These are the over riding laws of the land, and apply to all states, and can not be just dismissed out of hand by any state governor, state legislature, or any state official, or local officials. It does not work that way. The constitution and the bill of rights can not be changed by any government body be it federal state or local. Changes to the constitution and the bill of rights can only be made by we the people. Not with E.O. or legislation by any governing body, or any whim of someone on the supreme court. This is to keep government from usurping the power of the people.

    1. The Supreme Court is “appointed” to oversee the implementation of the constitution, and the protection of the constitution, by enforcing the constitution.
      Lately it would seem that the Supreme Court is neglecting its role of “OVERSIGHT”, and enforcement. Which means it is not protecting the constitution. We may need a new Supreme Court.

  14. Normal people are willingly accepting ignorance and sticking their heads in the darkness thinking “this isn’t happening”. Sorry folks. It’s BEEN HAPPENING FOR OVER 60 YEARS. Now it is happening BLATANTLY with the aid of large corporations. NOW IT MUST BE STOP! An individual cannot stop it by themselves … BUT 80,000,000+ CAN.
    DO SOMETHING. TALK. ARGUE. DEBATE. INFORM. KICK. SCREAM. WRITE. CALL. DISCUSS. Make change happen. Be the change.
    Hitler had only 9% of population support in Germany. There are 320 million Americans that 40% support.
    YES !!! WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN LEGALLY….. or

    1. It drives me crazy that all people do is talk and complain. If you have a Republican Senator, please call them and tell that you would like for them to stand and support Sen. Josh Hawley, there is strength in numbers. As of now he is the only Senator that is doing this!!! Just 1 short sentence-“Hi my name is —–and I want (name of your Representative) to stand with Josh Hawley in protesting the Electoral College votes”.

      Approx. 8 yrs. ago, I called all the members of the Freedom Caucus 30/40 members) to take a stand and they did. It took me about 45 min. to call all their offices and tell the person that answered the phone what I needed to say. Nothing will get done if we do nothing. We have set back and done nothing for too many years!

  15. Thank you Senator Hawley

    How right a 6 year old is!

    1. Yes!! We all thank you Senator Hawley.
      And would you please tell the rest of the GOP Senators that are not behind the president.
      That 75 million Trumpers are taking names, and kicking you know, and we have long memories, for back stabbers.
      Rhino is Democrat spelled backward, Democrat is Chinese spy any way you spell it.
      [email protected] is [email protected]……..forever and for your kids.

    2. EVERYONE should be calling their SENATORS and HOUSE politicians TELLING THEM to FOLLOW HAWLEY’s action. WE ALL KNOW THE ELECTION was stolen and they did a miserable job trying to cover it up! Truck of ballots went from NY to PA in the middle of the night, in GA told observers to go home and then pulled out suitcases full of ballets, Trump was leading then its stopped and then all these ballots came in all at once in almost “every” battleground state, and with BIDEN NEVER LEAVING the basement and when he did only a handfull of people showed up!!!! GIVE ME A BREAK, biggest SCAM IN HISTORY!!!

  16. Thank You Josh Hawley for standing up for the People and America, We need all the Help we can get. God Bless You.

  17. Thank you for standing up to the liars who did everything they could to get the best President we have had for a long time out of office so they can do
    everything to destroy our country.

  18. If you have a Republican Senator, (I have 2 Demorats) “please” call their office (all you have to do is give your name and say I want you to stand with Sen. Josh Hawley? One person in the “Senate” standing against the Dims will not work. Lindsey Graham has said so.

    Approx. 8 years ago I called every “Freedom Caucus” member with many others doing the same thing and we got results. We published their phone numbers on sites like this one.

    It is fine to discuss with others on these sites but actions speak louder than words.

    1. Sen. Lindsey Graham is a RINO….and should be primaried… “Saber-swinging” Republicans need to be in Congress who take no prisoners….

      We are tired of chinese crap imported into the USA. We are tired of assaults on the 2nd Amendment. The Constitution is the LAW as written! Nationwide “stand your ground” and “Castle” laws are required….and strengthen laws allowing US marshals to restore order by any means in cities where persistent disorder exists (like Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia, NYC, Seattle, Washington DC, etc.)

  19. I recall that recently a Chinese spy lamented that they had people in the high levels of the U.S. government. He also said that they could not penetrate the Trump administration. now maybe I am dump, but if they could not get in to the GOP, but they have access to high level people in the government. We know that Swalwell has had an affair with a Chinese spy, we also know that Pelosi seems to think that it was fine. We also know that for twenty years Feinstein had a Chinese chauffeur spy, and that was fine. That while Democrats have a problem with Russian spies, they don’t seem to have any problem with Chinese spies as the entire DNC seem to be full of them. Just saying, make up your own mind, but the evidence says it is so.
    You really have to think about these things. If they can’t get into the GOP that only leaves the DNC with an abnormal number of spies. What a twist, the Democrats caught with all the Chinese spies.

  20. MY SISTER WORKED FOR WALMART IN NORTH CAROLINA IN THE YARDAGE DEPARTMENT. A PATTERN CABINET FELL ON HER & BROKE HER BACK. THEY SENT HER TO THE COMPANY DR. HE SAID SHE WAS OK. SHE COULD HARDLY WALK. HER SON TOOK HER TO HER OWN DR IMMEDIATELY. SHE WAS HOSPITALISED & IMMEDIATELY OPERATED ON. ALTHOUGH SHE HAD COMPANY INSURANCE SHE HAD A .LONG BATTLE TO GET IT PAID

  21. BRAVO ,,, to Hawley and Brooks and the others that have the balls to stand up and fight for President Trump and the American voters !!! This election was full of FRAUD and CHEATING , and because of it , OUR country might lose a President that truly fought for US and OUR country . Now is the time for ALL Republicans to stand up , and stand together to fight for fair elections in the future . Conservatives should be watching Jan. 6th closely , any Republicans that DON”T object to the electorals , should be remembered and voted out , the next time they’re up for re-election ,,,,,,,,, we WON”T forget !!!

  22. Please : send this to your Reps.
    There is way too much evidence of fraud to simply ignore it.
    Unbelieveable the depth of corruption in this country, and the fact that the people we trusted to govern us have turned out to be lying, self-centered, crooks, willing to sell out the entire country for personal gain.
    If this fraud is allowed to prevail,………… ……..
    LORD HAVE MERCY ON US .
    I Pray You have the courage to do the Right and Just Thing .
    Let’s pray V.P. Pence has the courage to do the right and just thing.
    God is watching everything. He doesn’t sleep. Ever.

    Thank you .

  23. !=i
    and the Russian spies’ too, Hillary had them in her pocket. They even wrote a book for her, called the Russian- Clinton Dossier on ( How to pull a coup ). The Democrats are greedy, they want all the spies’ for themselves. They even had a British spy. I wonder how many more they have. Just like Pelosi’s ice cream, she won’t share her spies’ with anyone. They could at least loan one to a Rhino.

    1. I recall that recently a Chinese spy lamented that they had people in the high levels of the U.S. government. He also said that they could not penetrate the Trump administration. now maybe I am dump, but if they could not get in to the GOP, but they have access to high level people in the government.

      You really have to think about these things. If they can’t get into the GOP that only leaves the DNC with an abnormal number of spies. What a twist, the Democrats caught with all the Chinese spies.

  24. The Ga. governor has been in on the whole thing all a long. He has been working to bring Chinese businesses in to the state for a long time. instead of trying to encourage Americans to start businesses, and rebuild our own industries. Kemp and Raffensperger, both need to go. I know that I miss spelled his name, but he doesn’t deserve to have it spelled right. They both betrayed not only the people of Ga. but the rest of the country. they both should be hung as traitors.

  25. I think that it was Kelly that said AOC likes to play the victim. Well ! AOC is right she is a victim. She is a victim of her own immaturity, and life experiences. Lets face it you don’t learn much getting drunk in a bar.
    As far as her higher learning is concerned she needs to go back to the school she went to and get her money back. She did not learn a thing.

    AOC should watch Bernie very carefully as Biden greases Bernie’s butt, just as Hillary did in the DNC primary. Good old Joe thinks of himself as the Godfather of the Chinese Mafia ( The DNC ). Dang Nabit Crooks.

    Swalwell isn’t the only Chinese spy in the government. There are hundreds in congress, they are called demonicrats.

  26. The truth comes out Trump had exposed so much corruption. We had no idea how bad it is. That includes some of the republicans Which is sad. We can replace the rinos But we can replace trump. The senators. All of them need to listen to the people that voted them in. Do what is right. We are watching

  27. I just had an idea on gun control, conservatives will love this. All gun violence is committed in the blue state cities. So, what I purpose is to confiscate all weapons in these cities. Anyone with a gun of any kind will be shot on sight, including police. although I don’t know who will shot them if the police don’t have guns. Guess we’ll cross that bridge when err…. we get there. Always got to be a problem.

  28. Do you feel like you are going back in time to the Obama era twelve years ago. Wow. Don’t sound like a lot of progress hu. Same old crap same old people. I can’t believe the dems are getting by with this whole horror show. Where are all the so called experts to stop this mess What kind a country are we living in. This is scary

  29. His name is Joe “OBIDEN” he is an Obama knockoff! There was THEFT as sure as I am typing this mail! The man, Obiden LIED LIKE LINOLEUM the last time he ran for President and Plagerized some material he made his own, and was found out! He then had to bow out of the race! Who remembers the LIE? I do!!

  30. Whole heartedly AGREED with YOU JOSH! We, the PEOPLE, us, who have the FINAL WORD! “For the PEOPEL! Of the PEOPLE! And, by the PEOPLE!” Let all of us, the DNC, the GOP and the all the REST as groups or Individuals… WE are ONE PEOPLE, that is, we are: “One nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for ALL!”

    Thank you, Paulette for standing up and voiced your thought! We all LOVE our be loved USA with all of OUR HEARTS, MINDS, BODIES and SOULS! We Pray: “Our Heavenly Father, please, help us to set our be loved USA back on the RIGHTIOUS PATH which YOU ORDAINED for us to be, at the very beginning of the Founding of our Nation! It is with that same zeal, we pray for YOUR GUADENCE NOW, with which we may re-unite our “One Nation under YOUR HOLY LOVE! AMEN!”
