    If from Senate side he got help from strong MAGA ally and Iraq war hero Lindsey Graham or perhaps from conservative Mike Lee, that would make things much more difficult for VP Mike Pence. He may have to cancel his 'disappearing act' aka planned trip abroad in early Jan 2021.

    Interesting. Would like it better if Rand was the one objecting.

    He had better join in when it happens, he should have been the first to say he would.

    We have long had death and taxes as the two standards of inevitability. But there are those who believe that death is the preferable of the two. "At least," as one man said, "there's one advantage about death; it doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."

    It’s just a way for Pence to save face. Both the House and Senate will follow the Electoral Count Act, thereby forcing Pence to acknowledge Biden’s win after the House votes to overrule any objection. When the Narcissist-in-Chief has his conniption fit Pence cam blame the House vote, which of course won’t placate Trump.

    It’ll be interesting to see how many Senators go on record as supporting Trump’s phony narrative, if indeed that’s how an objection is framed. It’ll be even more interesting if one of them asks Senator Hawley, who was quoted as saying, “I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on January 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws" if Texas’ electoral votes for Trump should be tossed given that it didn’t follow its election laws.

    LOL. Isn't this the exact opposite of what you've been claiming will happen? You claimed Pence would count the Trump "electors"--so why would Hawley need to "object" to anything?

    41 year old Senator could become legendary in few days if he did go against leader Mitch's call ( McConnell and top Republicans urge GOP senators not to object to election results on Jan. 6 ).

    He did some good but how many of Rand advocated policies and principles he trampled on while providing Rand occasional access witout influence as Matt noted rightly. In few months/years, Trump could be dumped by GOP base as they did with "Bush/Cheney" opportunistically. GOP would probably ditch "America-First" and revert back to "God, Family, Country" priorities model once "Pence 2024" noise gains traction.
    From another thread on same topic:

    Rand's support to stable genius' "too much winning" recovery effort should be conditional, no need to give blind support to a relatively well behaved neocons laced tainted administration whose closest ally on world stage had been an Iraq war lobbying parasitic foreign state's head and just got played in the end by treacherous neocons anyway.

    MAGA 'injured bear' (borrowing another forum guest's analogy) seems in decisive mode right now and means business looking at resignation demand threat against FDA head to secure very quick approval of vaccine on Friday. Before joining this effort, Rand should demand that alpha MAGA leader issue similar tweet ultimatum for quickly ending forever wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and stopping $Billions in more wasteful wars spending in latest budget.
    As MAGA tries to hold accountable deep neocons/'treacherous zionists' who allegedly supported 'stolen election' coup against him, he can be supported in principle but Rand should offer qualified support based on such conditions.

    This play does not fully pass the smell test but should be given a chance perhaps as it appears to further boost on going fracturing of deep neocons lobbies.

    President ok to use military force against Iran.

    Hawley voted NAY the Iran War Powers Resolution

    Axios.com summary
    : The House passed a symbolic war powers resolution directing President Trump to halt the use of military force against Iran unless he obtains approval from Congress.

    The big picture: A classified briefing on the killing of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani [by the US military] left Democrats and even some Republicans deeply skeptical, with many claiming that officials did not provide evidence that there was an "imminent" threat from Iran. Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rand Paul (R-KY) said they will vote in favor of a similar resolution in the Senate [S J Res 68].

    What opponents are saying: Former national security adviser and notorious Iran hawk John Bolton tweeted: "The 1973 War Powers Resolution is unconstitutional. It reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of how the Constitution allocated foreign affairs authority between the President and Congress. The Resolution should be repealed." Pres. Trump quote tweeted Bolton and added: "Smart analysis, I fully agree!"

    'Follow the money' trail is even uglier with ties to foreign-first deep pockets but in this battle he probably should be given qualified support.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Their Motion correctly states that the Senate and the House - and not VP Pence - are the proper Defendants.

    You are aware that none of this is going to result in the outcome you're hoping for, right?

    Good luck. Nothing I'd like to see more than this current system in turmoil. I just don't see a way they'll let it happen.
