Pelosi Salivates Over Possibility That She’ll Get to Choose the Next President

Is a mail-in vote, replete with potential fraud, not enough to get you nervous about the upcoming election? Well, then we have just the thing for you! How about this scenario: Neither Joe Biden nor Donald Trump manage to secure the 270 Electoral College votes they need to win the presidency outright. Under that scenario, which hasn’t transpired since 1876, the selection of our next president would head to the House of Representatives. What fun!

While we ordinarily classify this story as “Politico trying to get clicks with an obscure fantasy about how the election might go,” the fact that this potential situation is being taken seriously by both Nancy Pelosi and President Trump…well, that gives us pause.

And it seems that both are indeed looking at this possibility very seriously, indeed.

From Politico:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has begun mobilizing Democrats for the possibility that neither Joe Biden nor President Donald Trump will win an outright Electoral College victory, a once-in-a-century phenomenon that would send the fate of the presidency to the House of Representatives to decide.

Under that scenario, which hasn’t happened since 1876, every state’s delegation gets a single vote. Who receives that vote is determined by an internal tally of each lawmaker in the delegation. This means the presidency may not be decided by the party that controls the House itself but by the one that controls more state delegations in the chamber. And right now, Republicans control 26 delegations to Democrats’ 22, with Pennsylvania tied and Michigan a 7-6 plurality for Democrats, with a 14th seat held by independent Justin Amash.

Of course, the situation “right now” doesn’t mean a whole lot, since, after all, we’re only weeks away from an election that could turn it all upside down. And that’s what Pelosi is focused on: Trying to shore up those delegations, even if it means diverting money and attention away from close races in other areas of the country.

“The Constitution says that a candidate must receive a majority of the state delegations to win,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to House Democrats on Sunday. “We must achieve that majority of delegations or keep the Republicans from doing so.”

And like we said, it’s on Trump’s mind as well.

“And I don’t want to end up in the Supreme Court and I don’t want to go back to Congress either, even though we have an advantage if we go back to Congress — does everyone understand that?” Trump said at a rally this weekend. “I think it’s 26 to 22 or something because it’s counted one vote per state, so we actually have an advantage. Oh, they’re going to be thrilled to hear that.”

So there you go: The 2020 election could not only be botched with missing ballots and crazy harvesting schemes…it could not only be days or even weeks until we know who actually won…but the whole thing may wind up decided by the House of Representatives!

And with the way this year has been going, we wouldn’t even be surprised.

What do you think?

  1. In a case like this, we also have politicians running for the house. Will the new house of representatives make that decision? If so, then we conservatives should make sure that our vote is counted, and we personally go out and vote. That is what I have been doing.

    • That is exactly what Pelosi was referring to. The Dems plan to flip the Republican House (State) majority thus giving them the presidency.

  2. Democrates have no idea what there in for , disgruntle un-American politician’s are consuming their party , you have burned out Burnie socialism is just another word for genocide, aoc ” the green new steal ” , Omar she’s a demon , taleib plain and simply a moron , kamala a misleading pile of bullshit then you have Schiff , Schumer , nadler , comey , pelosi , brennan , and all democrates saying Trump is a Russia asset , spy , their all Damn Liers . What’s party of fool’s .

  3. Just send the OLD HAG packing, and send her AWAY on her BROOM parked in the parking lot, or send her to FEDERAL PRISON for SEDITION and TREASON (with NADLER and SCHIFF) for the FIRST COUP as per the U.S. Constitution . . . PROBLEM solved. One Enlightened Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  4. I love all of the support for our President. He is the only person capable of leading our country back to a state of “happiness”. He did a remarkable job w Covid. I have no idea what more he could’ve done. The man created full functioning hospitals w hundreds of beds & prepared staff ready for action, in under a week. He gets the job done & he does it very well. Biden & the left would still be in the thinking phase. And it would be intentional bc they do not give a f+×÷. I have yet to hear a good idea or even a future plan for how they would handle CV19. They are useless. No person should sworn into a govt seat unless they are able to swear to stand w & support the duly elected president throughout his or her term(s). That ia not to say they must like the pres. This is not an oath binding them to agree w the pres. The purpose should be obvious; to prevent division, to keep the govt officials working for THE PEOPLE, to avoid the obsession of taking down a president for whom the people chose; it would force unity & collaboration; & it would protect the the peoples vote. This country is great bc of our Constitution, Liberties & Freedoms. We have guidelines that were very well thought out by our founding fathers. Crazy how they were spot on in their goal to protect the very ideas, values & principles that make America what it is. Amd then, here come these whackadoodles, who think they can change things as they go simply bc they don’t like it. Too fookin bad. Deal w it. This is the United Ststes of America. A Capitalist country. End of story. These pedophile, baby killing, gun grabbing, racist pigs can fly a super jet plane & be dropped off at Epstein Island. THEY ARE BAD FOR AMERICA. DEMS HAVE NO POLICY. NO INTEGRITY. NO TRUTHS. THEY LIE, DECEIT, SCHEME, CHEAT, FABRICATE, & DOWN RIGHT HATE AMERICA. Make no mistake, if this election is not decisively taken by Trump, & we end up w dem in the White House, there will be no going back. Bc our voices will be lost. We The People will vanish. Dreams will only be dreams. The Xhina Virus was a trial run for what life would be like. Btw, Socialism is a front for Communism. This is no joke. So step up. Be loud. Be proud. Advocate for President Trump. Donate when you can. $5 here or there. Spread the message. And do not stop fighting the good fight. And for those who do not know, it was the Republicans who fought against the Dems to end slavery. Let’s keep fighting them & hey, maybe we will put an end to them. That would be Awesome. Haha.

    • Here is the problem why Trump and Republicans are now in a in a panic mode. In the vote by mail ballots in Florida the Republican’s have 1,550, 215 and the Democrats have 2,282,630 that is a huge lead. My sources are telling me that the No Party Affiliation VBM are coming in 2 to 1 in favor of Biden.

      As who is leading in the polls after the debate are now coming in and they are also in favor of Biden. The only reason I think is the fact that he failed to condemn the white racists and bigots that are supporting him. Because of this his poll number has drop significantly.

  5. Anyone paying attention would have noticed that Biden has yet to denounce BLM & ANTIFA. The Democrats are the people funding these groups. The only people who are swayed by their antics are the weak minded folks. If at this point, there are people who are undecided, I would bet they don’t show up at the voting booth. WE NEED TO SHOW UP, VOTE RED, AND STAND STRONG. PREPARE FOR THE BACKLASH OF A TRUMP RE-ELECTION. IT WILL LIKELY BE THE GREATEST FIGHT YOU’VE EVER FOUGHT BC IT IS NOT AN ELECTION OR A PERSON WE FIGHT FOR; IT IS A COUNTRY & OUR FREEDOM & LIBERTIES WE FIGHT FOR.
    TRUMP 2020! HE IS GOING TO WIN.
    That is if we are able to eliminate Dems harvesting ballots, buying votes, & not counting ballots cast by dead people. There has been an obscene amount of ballots already cast by deceased people. Sick shit.
