If Trump goes down, so will the Senate majority

Ca super PAC tied to onservative operatives and the GOP’s infamous dirty gimmick, Roger Stone, calls on Trump’s supporters to punish Republicans by planting Georgia’s decisive Senate proceedings or writing in Trump’s name instead. And while their efforts are still on the margins of the party, the trajectory of the movement fears Republicans fear it could be the cost of Senate GOP scrutiny.

In the two run-down races, the most aggressive boycott or protest vote to date can be attributed to a dormant Trump-party super PAC tied to Stone, which presented a new initiative to retaliate for Republican Party supposed turns by handing over Democrat control. the US Senate

A group called the U.S. Sovereignty Committee has unveiled a new website that has encouraged Georgian Republicans to register in Trump’s name in the upcoming Senate two elections, which could determine the party that will control the upper chamber in the first two years of President-elect Joe Biden. . in the office. The PAC argued that this would show support for the president, in addition to forcing Republicans to address the wild election-fraud conspiracy theories raised by Trump supporters and members of his own legal team.

“If we can achieve this, we have a real chance to act on these RINO senators in an illegitimate and corrupt election led by a democratic party that is investing in the communist takeover of our Great Nation,” wrote his new group website, writeintrumpforgeorgiasenate.com . “We will not stop fighting for you, against the evil of American patriotism, socialism, and inferior religions.”

This effort represents a broader effort among President Trump’s most committed supporters to apprehend two Georgian Republican senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, who face competitive challenges, in hopes of exploiting the party’s fear of losing the United States. receive more settlement support for their efforts to change the outcome of the elections. Operations said the goal was to expose a supposed massive electoral fraud conspiracy perpetrated by high-ranking Republicans in the Georgian state government, including Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

The U.S. Sovereignty Committee and the fraternal nonprofit were set up in 2016 as vehicles for prominent Trump-Party operatives, notably Stone and former Black Captain Erik Prince, to try to suppress the black vote by substantiating unfounded allegations that according to Bill Clinton’s biracial son. Since then, it’s mostly quiet. The PAC’s recent submissions to the Federal Electoral Commission only reveal existing federal and state tax liabilities, and Georgia’s new efforts don’t seem to have received much yet.

The request for comments sent to the U.S. Sovereign Committee’s e-mail address to the FEC was not returned. California political activist Pamela Jensen, who led the group, was not successfully reached. Her husband, a lawyer named Paul Jensen, who describes Stone as his “long client,” told The Daily Beast in an email that his wife “has no comments, and neither do I.”. Stone did not respond to his current relationship with the group.

The strategy of the U.S. Sovereignty Committee faces significant hurdles — especially in the lack of room for entry candidates on Georgian national team ballots, which simply ask voters to select one of the two candidates. But the efforts behind the super PAC and other pro-Trump activists to get Georgian Republicans to their knees have nevertheless gained much attraction over the past week, largely thanks to public statements by Sidney Powell, who in a Newsmax interview on Saturday said he envisioned voter fraud Dominion voting machines and Venezuelan bribes are involved, ranging all the way to Kemp and Raffensperger. Powell even suggested that Loeffler would have lost to Doug Collins, the Republican chief challenger, this month if the alleged electoral fraud had not worsened the Georgian election.

“Mr. Kemp and the Secretary of State have to go with him because they are in the Dominion scam when they bought or rewarded the $ 100 million contract to the Dominion at the last minute,” Powell said.

An internal party poll in Georgia that has angered Trump fans angered by Powell’s conspiracy theories has somewhat dampened polls in Georgia, showing that a relatively small percentage of the state’s Trump voters are so dissatisfied that they can be rebuked. the GOP’s own senate candidates. One Republican colleague who saw this poll told The Daily Beast that the number was “one digit”.

But the run-off races on January 5 are expected to be extremely tight, even excluding mistakes. And even Republicans who are fully involved in the conspiracy theories surrounding Trump’s election defeat say they are concerned that this will suppress GOP involvement, which is potentially enough to cost the party two Senate seats and a majority. be.

“The incompetence of the foreign minister and the anger over the governor’s leadership failure could mean Republicans just stay home,” said Newt Gingrich, a former Georgian congressman and Speaker of the House. “I think there’s a really big problem with Republicans showing up.”

In an interview with The Daily Beast on Monday, Gingrich said he was fully convinced that Democrats would try to steal both Senate elections. Republicans “can really win the referendum, but they can’t win the counted vote,” Gingrich predicted. “They actually have a fairly easy campaign … The problem is, when we do all of this – traditional, classic campaigns – if the other party has enough control over the election machine, they just beat it.”

But Gingrich said he hopes such horrific predictions of inevitable election thefts will lead Republicans to the ballot box, rather than reinforcing voter apathy, which he says worries him. “I have a very simple model,” he said. “They have to win by a bigger difference than they can steal.”

While Gingrich can clearly see the stakes in the runoff, others Republicans do not. On the conservative Parler social site, sad Trump fans said they express their displeasure with the GOP by omitting the drafts or writing in Trump’s name. Last week, talk radio host Rush Limbaugh told his audience that “Never Trump” Republicans were desperately waiting for their votes during the runoff, suggesting that the votes of Trump’s supporters could be grabbed.

“It’s funny that these Never Trump people want us to save their bacon now as they sit on their butts and laugh at Trump and us for voting for him,” Limbaugh said.

Limbaugh eventually encouraged his audience to vote for Loeffler and Perdue anyway. But Trump-party Georgian lawyer Lin Wood, who sued Georgia to stop the state’s vote certification, tweeted on Saturday to vote in the run only if Loeffler and Perdue take further action against election day allegations of voter fraud.

“Threaten to hold back your votes and money,” Wood tweeted. – Demand that they represent you.

Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue can either do what we said because we are their voters, we are their donors, we are volunteers, or we will literally not vote.

Conservative operative Ali Alexander, who organized “Stop the Steal” demonstrations across the country, demanded that Perdue and Loeffler call on Kemp to order a special session of the Georgian legislature to investigate allegations of voter fraud. If they don’t, Alexander said, Trump’s followers are boycotting the runoff.

“Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue can either do what we said because we are their voters, we are their donors, we are our volunteers, or we will literally not vote,” Alexander said before mimicking his critics ’concerns about Senate scrutiny. “Oh, but Ali, will the Democrats take over the Senate?” I want an enemy in my face rather than a traitor behind me.

Alexander, who has nearly 200,000 Twitter followers and is prone to grandiose statements about his own influence within the party, has threatened to launch primary campaigns nationwide under the “Stop the Steal” brand against Republicans who are not sufficiently supported by Trump’s post-election legal efforts. . He claimed he could convince 100,000 Georgian voters to boycott the January 5 run and urged his fans not to donate to Georgian Senate candidates or Republican groups, saying they already had enough money.

“No one should donate to the NRSC, the RNC, Kelly Loeffler or David Perdue,” Alexander said.

Alexander’s remarks led to the withdrawal of Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) elected representative, a former supporter of QAnon, who was sworn in to Congress in January. Greene tweeted that the threats “hand over the Senate to the Socialist Democrats!”

“Individuals who raise donations for their personal PayPal must spend on elections,” Greene tweeted, who was obviously chattering to Alexander for asking Trump’s voters for donations to his PayPal account.

Other Republicans have sought to ensure that Trump voters angry with the GOP continue to show up to vote during the runoff. Donald Trump Jr. on Monday tweeted Trump supporters that conservative activists are calling for a vote.

“It’s NONSENSE,” Trump Jr. tweeted. – IGNORE those people.
