Steve Daines donates testicles to Trump
Posted by Dick Ellingson (+883) 5 months ago
Daines has signed on with ten more pouting emasculated Trump-fearing Republican senators to contest the electoral college votes this coming week.

When asked about his donation to Donny's Dynasty, he downplayed it, saying, "Shucks, it wasn't nothin' really, I haven't used 'em for more than four years anyway."

It certainly makes me proud that a Senator from Montana has joined the seditionist criminals. Daines and his Trump sycophant buddies are so patriotic that they would subvert the democratic process in this country to please him. Every sane Republican, if this isn’t an oxymoron now, should be ashamed to be associated with such unpatriotic activities. The orange headed cockroach has litigated the issue of election fraud in probably fifty courtrooms. He has been summarily defeated every time because of a complete lack of evidence. Evidently, he and his toadies are incapable of understanding that fraud is factually based. This has involved adverse rulings by several judges he appointed. Are there any patriot Republicans left or has the cockroach taken the Republican party down with him?

A pending Senator or Congressman should not seated if they are contesting an election that many of them were participants. Daines appears to be drunk on the over indulgence and addiction to the oral ingestion of a withering cheeto.

I sent an email to Daines today. Of course I do not expect a reply that makes any sense. Here is a copy:
Dear Senator Daines,
It was reported in the Washington Post that you have joined with several other Republican Senators to contest the electoral results of several states in which Joe Biden won over Donald Trump. This news was both disappointing to me and insulting to the electoral process. This action only serves to prolong the wild assertions by Donald Trump and others in his orbit that there was substantial fraud in the election. The courts have stated in several dismissed actions that there was no proof of these assertions.
Due to COVID precautions, several states held their elections by mail ballots. Montana was one of them. I find it hypocritical that the only elections that are contested are those in which Mr. Trump did not win. There has been no assertion of fraud in the states where the Republicans won. Could it not be said that your re-election was not valid since the majority of Montanans voted by mail?
Please get out of the Trump Clown Car and get to work to heal our country of the terrible divisiveness we have suffered for the past four years.
History has shown that members of the House, Senate and the Executive Branch (even with members of different political persuasions) can work together for the American people. Now is the time to step up and show us that you are truly a Montanan and not a sycophant for Donald Trump.

I think Tom S needs to explain why he is supportive of Steve Daines act of sedition which is defined in 18 U.S.Code - 2384 as:

"If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both."

Rather than hide behind the chicken-s h i t like/dislike vote system, find a pair and explain why I am wrong? Oh wait, did you donate yours to Trump like Daines?

And threatens him if he doesn't:

“You know what they did, and you’re not reporting it,” Trump said during the call. “That’s a criminal, that’s a criminal offense. And you can’t let that happen. That’s a big risk to you and to Ryan, your lawyer. That’s a big risk.”


Steve Daines supports election fraud, apparently.

There are many Republicans in Congress who want no part in Trump's delusions of voter fraud and "Stop the Steal" idiocy. Here are just a few examples.

Senator Mitt Romney of Utah:

"The egregious ploy to reject electors may enhance the political ambition of some, but dangerously threatens our Democratic Republic. The congressional power to reject electors is reserved for the most extreme and unusual circumstances. These are far from it. More Americans participated in this election than ever before, and they made their choice. President Trump’s lawyers made their case before scores of courts; in every instance, they failed. The Justice Department found no evidence of irregularity sufficient to overturn the election. The Presidential Voter Fraud Commission disbanded without finding such evidence."

“I could never have imagined seeing these things in the greatest democracy in the world. Has ambition so eclipsed principle?”

https://www.romney.senate...on-results

Right-wing kook Ken Buck from Colorado doesn't agree with Trump.

"As of this moment, not a single state has submitted multiple conflicting slates of electoral votes. In other words, every state has sent either (a) Biden electors, or (b) Trump electors. Of the six states as to which questions have been raised, five have legislatures that are controlled by Republicans, and they all have the power to send a new slate of electoral votes to Congress if they deem such action appropriate under state law. Unless that happens between now and January 6, 2021, Congress will have no authority to influence the outcome of the 2020 presidential election."

https://buck.house.gov/me...-january-6

Ben Sasse, Republican Senator from Nebraska may have the best rebuke of the Orange moron on his Facebook page. In conversations with his Republican colleagues about the election outcome, this is what he said.

"When we talk in private, I haven’t heard a single Congressional Republican allege that the election results were fraudulent – not one. Instead, I hear them talk about their worries about how they will “look” to President Trump’s most ardent supporters."

https://www.facebook.com/...5981660655

Every Congressperson who is challenging the certification of the electoral college by congress on January 6th is in violation of their oath of office to protect and defend the constitution. They should be removed from office and charged with sedition.

Retired District Court Judge Jeff Sherlock made an excellent comment to the article on the traitor Daines posted on the Helena Independent Record website:

At least 60 people don't think the election was rigged. Those are all the federal and state judges who examined these claim and found them unavailing. In addition, this stunt is probably unconstitutional. The "plan" calls for allowing the state legislatures to browse the findings of the "emergency commission" and hold a special session to select new electors. Article Two of the constitution requires all states to send in their electors on the same day. This occurred on December 14. There is no provision for allowing select states to conduct a redo after the mandated transmission date.

Really don't know what to say here Jerry - what do you honestly think is going to happen should the Republican party somehow manage to win a presidency while losing the popular vote for the third time in roughly twenty years, and this only AFTER all the states have certified electors that should have secured Biden's election? What procreateing planet do you live on, that a majority of the population keeps winning elections but somehow isn't allowed to govern, but just shrugs their shoulders and says 'better luck next time, I guess'? Time is rapidly running out to deescalate the political situation here, and the university of youtube isn't teaching you anything useful.

Actually, I did answer your question, just not in the way you expected. Whether or not I cast my ballot in MT isn't any of your business and doesn't not disqualify me from making my original comment on Steve Daines. I have clearly demonstrated my vested interest.

I have come to the conclusion the 13th century Persian poet Rumi was correct when he said "You can beat 40 scholars with one fact, but you cannot beat one idiot with 40 facts". Your ilk have clearly verified this truth.

In light of what happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday, Steve Daines back-peddled on signing-off on the protests of some of the electoral results, however, he still continues to parrot Trump's election conspiracy delusions. The guy just does not get it. He is only interested in whatever will make him look good, not what is moral or even legal. Steve Daines needs to be "primaryed out" at the next election. Unfortunately it will be almost six years.

The SWAT team has just pulled up to the house and the meth dealer is flushing the product down the toilet... that's what Steve Daines actions in the last 24 hours are like.

I noticed yesterday on Facebook the MT Democratic Party and the Custer County Democratic Party posting their "outrage" over what happened last night. I have come to think of such responses as no better than the "thoughts and prayers" response. Daines should be recalled. Get off your ass and make it happen!

[MCA 2-16-603: Officers subject to recall -- grounds for recall. (1) Any person holding a public office of the state or any of its political subdivisions, either by election or appointment, is subject to recall from office.

(2) A public officer holding an elective office may be recalled by the qualified electors entitled to vote for the elective officer's successor. A public officer holding an appointive office may be recalled by the qualified electors entitled to vote for the successor or successors of the elective officer or officers who have the authority to appoint a person to that position.

(3) Physical or mental lack of fitness, incompetence, violation of the oath of office, official misconduct, or conviction of a felony offense enumerated in Title 45 are the only grounds for recall. A person may not be recalled for performing a mandatory duty of the office that the person holds or for not performing any act that, if performed, would subject the person to prosecution for official misconduct.

History: En. Sec. 2, I.M. No. 73, approved November 2, 1976; amd. Sec. 3, Ch. 364, L. 1977; R.C.M. 1947, 59-612; amd. Sec. 1, Ch. 398, L. 1979; amd. Sec. 109, Ch. 61, L. 2007.

Well, surprise, surprise. I did get a response to my email to Steve Daines. As I suspected, he did not really address my concern and just talked around the issue of his initial plan to contest the results of the Electoral College.

This letter is basically a few pats on the hand saying, there, there, we will be looking into it.

Of the few times I have written one of our congressional delegation, I have never gotten a reply that directly addresses the issue of my concern.

Here it is:

January 13, 2021

Mr. Robert Martelle



Dear Mr. Martelle,
Thank you for contacting me regarding the certification of the results of the Electoral College. I value your point of view, and appreciate the opportunity to respond.

As you may know, while Congress was meeting to fulfill our constitutional duty of certifying the results of the Electoral College on January 6, 2021, a criminal mob breached security, assaulted law enforcement officers, and illegally occupied the Capitol in an attempt to thwart certifying the election. Sadly, several people, including two heroic U.S. Capitol Police officers, lost their lives. While I am an ardent supporter of the First Amendment and the right to peacefully protest, the destruction and violence we saw was an assault on our democracy, our Constitution, the rule of law, and it must not be tolerated.

I understand how high tensions can be following a close election. Many people understandably have concerns about the integrity of our elections. This is nothing new, but all too often following an election these concerns are just swept under the rug and doubt continues to build. Congress can and must act to address these issues and rebuild confidence in our elections for all sides.

Thanks to the bravery of law enforcement in clearing and securing the Capitol, we were able to return to our chambers where I joined my colleagues in certifying the results of the Electoral College. We will have a peaceful and orderly transition of power, just as we have for the last two centuries.

Again, thanks for contacting me. It is my number one priority in the Senate to represent the values and interests of the people of Montana, and your input is very helpful as I do. I invite you to visit my website, www.daines.senate.gov, for updates about activities in Washington that affect our lives in Montana or to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you again in the future
Sincerely,

Steve Daines
United States Senator
