Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Florida Republican, announced that he is joining the efforts in Congress to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

During a speech on Saturday at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit event in West Palm Beach, FL, Gaetz said, “On January 6th, I’m joining with the fighters in the Congress and we are going to object to electors from states that didn’t run clean elections.”

January 6 is the day Congress is scheduled to certify the electoral college’s vote.

“Our friends in the media will breathlessly exclaim that we are attacking democracy. That’s nonsense,” Gaetz said. “Democracy is left undefended if we accept the result of a stolen election, without fighting with every bit of vigor we can muster.”

Monday morning, Gaetz reiterated his message on Twitter.

“It is time to stand and fight,” Gaetz said Saturday. “The odds may be tough. It may be the 4th and long, but we’re going for it on January 6th.”

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
