Rep. Elise Stefanik announced in a Twitter video Monday that she will object to certifying the Electoral College results Wednesday.

“As the representative for New York’s 21st Congressional District, I plan to object to certain contested electors on January 6,” Stefanik said in the video. “I do not take this action lightly. I am acting to protect our democratic process.”

“Article II and the Twelfth Amendment of the Constitution make clear that I have an obligation to act on this matter if I believe there are serious questions with respect to the Presidential election.”

“I believe those questions exist,” Stefanik continued.

“Tens of millions of Americans are rightly concerned that the 2020 election featured unprecedented voting irregularities, unconstitutional overreach by unelected state officials and judges ignoring state election laws and a fundamental lack of ballot integrity and security.”

Stefanik will join at least 140 other GOP members who are expected to support President Donald Trump’s campaign to overturn the election results.

“As a member of Congress, I am committed to restoring the faith of the American people in our elections, that they are free, fair, secure and according to the United States Constitution,” Stefanik said.

Congress will hold a joint session on Jan. 6 to ratify President-elect Biden’s 306-232 Electoral College win. Objections from GOP members are expected. Majorities in the House and Senate would have to agree for the challenge to be successful.

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
