No one could have predicted the twists and turns of this election, but Donald Trump was certainly right about one thing: his deeply religious base was going to rewrite the record books. Back in January, talking to a group of evangelicals, he predicted that as high as their turnout was in 2016, Christian conservatives would "blow those numbers away in 2020." And boy, did they.

This week the House is back in session for the legislative session before Christmas recess and the start of the 117th Congress. While we await details on the deal funding the government before the December 11th shutdown, House leadership plans to bring a marijuana decriminalization bill to the Floor for a vote.

FORT WORTH, Texas -- On November 30, 2020 is released a Lawyer's Proclamation in Support of a Fair and Equal Election. The Proclamation asserts that Joseph Biden did not receive more legal votes in the six dispositive swing states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia. Further, while the U.S.A. as we know it now hangs in the balance, the state legislatures in those six swing states must intervene for the President, and in doing so they will have fulfilled their constitutional duty. Attorneys can sign the Proclamation at www.lawyersproclamation.website.

White House Flag

Even if Donald Trump isn't in the White House for the next four years, he's leaving the next president with a whole lot to remember him by. As the days tick on, more liberals are starting to realize that even if Joe Biden wins, upending all that Trump did will be a much harder climb than many people thought. The roots of this administration's policy run deep, and pulling them up will be a long, difficult slog--if the Democrat can manage it at all.

House Hoping to Legalize Marijuana

PotThis week, Washington welcomed back the House and Senate after a recess to campaign. The few weeks in between the end of the 116th and start of the 117th Congress are sure to be busy. The agenda includes funding the government before the December 11th deadline and decriminalizing marijuana.

The House follows the lead of the four states that decriminalized marijuana on November 3rd. We’ve advocated tirelessly against marijuana legalization and our lawmakers, both federally and at the state level, continue to forget the consequences of the drug’s legalization. Just last September the House passed the SAFE Banking Act. As you may recall, this legislation prevents federal banking regulators from punishing financial institutions that finance marijuana businesses that are legal under state or local laws. The bill undermines federal law and allows for legal money laundering in which banks receive illegally obtained funds.

President Donald J. Trump 2020

This could happen if the Supreme Court overturns enough of Biden votes, that he does not have sufficient to achieve the 270 electoral votes to win the election.

We don’t know yet if this will happen, but with the many recounts, investigations into fraud, and court challenges it is a possibility.

If neither candidate receives the required 270 electoral votes, then the Twelfth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution outlines what happens. “…if no person have such majority (of elector votes), then…the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President.” But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having ONE vote.” A quorum of members from two-thirds of the states is required.

They flooded downtown D.C. holding patriotic flags and signs, a mass of Americans filling the streets to show their support for the president. The media would ignore them, of course -- but the sea of Million MAGA marchers, like the dozens of campaign rallies leading up to the election, would be hard to overlook. Chants of "Count every vote!" rang out -- a cry echoed in courtrooms across the states, where the Trump campaign fights on. Whether his efforts will be enough to save his presidency, no one knows. But could they save an election system bogged down by doubts and questions? That, in the long run, may be just as important.
