TRUMP B424! Can a Contingent Election Work?
Steve Bannon hit on an essential element in the "stolen election' debate.
Theories about how the stolen election can be righted are abounding. And if the mechanisms to do such worked ideally, it could happen. But we live in a politically corrupt world, and the ideal situation may not occur as we think it should.
Although we may not have perfection on our side, we have some of the keenest minds in the world working full-time, thinking of ways to get President Trump back into the White House (where he rightfully belongs) before 2024.
Listen to the first 4 minutes of this video as Bannon explains what CAN happen:
We Don't Need Another National Election – It's Called a Contingent Election and We Win 26 to 24!

Democrats have to run… on climate change, abortion, and threats to democracy. You do understand that Democrats can't win unless they steal elections? I understand that gets under their skin, but that's reality.
I don't think anyone better than you or I understand that, Steve. We lived it, right?
Big league… By the way, we're still in a couple of foxholes. And we're never giving up… Trump put up last night that hey, because of the Hunter situation, because of the FBI guy either getting fired or quitting, because of Facebook saying the FBI told them not to do it, that he won, and he wants another election immediately. I keep saying the Biden electors can't get certified…
We don't need another national election; it's called a – CONTINGENT ELECTION.
It gets flipped. You're not going to flip the Biden electors to Trump electors. You're going to be not able to certify the Biden electors.
And by not certifying the Biden electors, the Electoral Count Act of 1887 and our beloved Constitution have a way that it's supposed to happen. That is a contingent election, the House of Representatives, where you vote by state delegation. And guess what? Even with Liz Cheney voting Wyoming for the Democrats, I think we still win 26-24.

JUST WHAT IS A CONTINGENT ELECTION?
A CONTINGENT ELECTION has been used before in this USA. Check it out:
- In the United States, a contingent election is used to elect the president or vice president if no candidate receives a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed. A presidential contingent election is decided by a special vote of the United States House of Representatives, while a vice-presidential contingent election is decided by a vote of the United States Senate. During a contingent election in the House, each state delegation votes en bloc to choose the president instead of representatives voting individually. Senators, by contrast, cast votes individually for vice president.
- The contingent election process is specified in Article Two, Section 1, Clause 3 of the United States Constitution. The procedure was modified by the 12th Amendment in 1804, under which the House chooses one of the three candidates who received the most electoral votes, while the Senate chooses one of the two candidates who received the most electoral votes. The phrase "contingent election" is not in the text of the Constitution but has been used to describe this procedure since at least 1823.
Contingent elections have occurred three times in American history: in 1801, 1825, and 1837.
- In 1800, Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr, the presidential and vice-presidential nominees on the ticket of the Democratic-Republican Party, received the same number of electoral votes.
- Under the pre-Twelfth Amendment Constitution, a contingent election was held the following year to decide which one would be president and which vice president. In 1824, the Electoral College was split between four candidates, with Andrew Jackson losing the subsequent contingent election to John Quincy Adams even though he won a plurality of both the popular and electoral vote.
- In 1836, faithless electors in Virginia refused to vote for Martin Van Buren's vice presidential nominee, Richard Mentor Johnson, denying him a majority of the electoral vote and forcing the Senate to elect him in a contingent election.
(NOTE-*The past three contingent elections were conducted by the outgoing Congress because congressional terms then ended / began on March 4, the same day as presidential terms. In 1933, the 20th Amendment set the new congressional term to start on January 3, then the new January 20 presidential term end / start date. The amendment shortened the length of lame-duck sessions of Congress by two months, and any future contingent elections would be conducted by the incoming Congress.)

So at this point, it looks like a national election is unnecessary. The state delegates vote, and Trump wins 26 to 24 (even with crazy Liz Cheney voting with Democrats)
Let's pray this takes place before The Biden Crime family and their minions do much more damage to our beautiful country.
