UNITED STATES, December 14, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Mainstream media outlets touted a victory for Joe Biden today as a majority of the nation’s presidential electors, nominated by the 50 states’ governors, cast their votes for Biden after a hotly contested, controversial, and drawn out presidential election. However, in several battleground states whose governors appointed Democrat electors, an “alternate” slate of Republican electors have simultaneously cast their electoral votes for President Donald Trump.
The New York Times hailed what is being called the official vote, saying Biden was thus “formally securing the presidency in the manner set out in the Constitution, some six weeks after Election Day.” CNN called the event “a crushing blow to President Trump’s controversial and unprecedented attempts to block Biden’s victory in the Electoral College by filing longshot lawsuits and pressuring lawmakers in battleground states to overturn millions of legal votes.”
However, nuances in the constitutional process of selecting the U.S. president leave Biden’s alleged victory still in doubt. Republican electors in Pennsylvania, Nevada, Georgia, and Arizona — states whose Democrat electors “officially” voted for Biden — all cast votes for the president, thus enabling him to “preserve any legal claims … going forward.” The move is to ensure that the legal cases undertaken by the Trump team can continue through the rest of December and into January.
PETITION UPDATE (1/15/2021) -
The events of the past month, and especially the past 10 days, have shaken the faith Americans have in their elected and appoint officials.
We continue to call for investigations to be made into allegations of election fraud. Texas is in the process of prosecuting one political operative for illegal ballot harvesting, and multiple state legislatures have called for investigations, too.
However, the judiciary has severely let down the American electorate.
As we have said all along, the integrity of the election is much bigger than President Trump. Election integrity is at the heart of republican democracy, and if we don't have it, we no longer have a functioning republic.
Therefore, we continue to seek the truth for the election outcome. Perhaps that will only be known in the future when state or federal commissions are established to investigate the instances of election fraud which were witnessed and sworn to, by thousands of Americans of all political persuasions.
In the meantime, you may still sign this petition. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20) -
On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted: "We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!"
He is referring to the lawsuit which the state of Texas has filed against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
President Trump also tweeted that this case is, "very strong...ALL CRITERIA MET."
Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
PETITION UPDATE (12/7/20) - Since this petition was launched, President Trump's legal team, as well as other concerned citizens, have discovered what appears to be irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in several of the key battleground states, and have initiated legal challenges in six states.
While the situation continues to evolve, this remains a hugely important petition which we encourage you to SIGN and SHARE.
Below, please WATCH and READ about the mounting evidence of voter fraud and how the mainstream media seem determined to ignore even the most egregious instances of vote tampering. Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition.
LifeSite supports President Trump with this petition because we believe he is trying to defend the Constitution, ensuring that electoral fraud does not taint the result of the 2020 general election.
But, since starting this petition, we have launched a separate petition related to the disputed election outcome, calling on the Department of Justice to 'do their job' and engage in meaningful investigations of the mounting evidence of voter fraud.
We believe that conducting forensic audits of ballots and voting machines, as well as issuing subpoenas to collect more evidence, would be a good start.
Thankfully, some of the state started to demand investigations independent of federal agencies. But we still believe that the DoJ needs to use its enormous fact-finding resources to help resolve allegations of election fraud.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE all our election-related petitions.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which calls on all Americans to Stand With President Trump as he uses every legitimate means to find out if voter fraud played any role in the election outcome.
Amid allegations of voter fraud, and at a time when the situation with COVID has been used by many of the states to facilitate the use of mail-in ballots on a massive scale, we need to be very careful in dismissing the possibility of voter fraud.
The fact is, the possibility of wide-spread fraud with mail-in ballots is significant.
But, this is not about Donald Trump or Joe Biden! This about whether or not the sanctity of the ballot box has been tampered with!
Please Stand With President Trump as he attempts to defend the integrity of this election, as well as well as the right to vote itself!
Indeed, this is so important, not so much because one election hangs in the balance, but because our democracy, itself, hangs in the balance.
Americans not only have a right to know, but should demand that every legitimate means be used to discover the truth about these elections!
Please SIGN this petition and Stand With President Trump to ensure that these elections were conducted freely and fairly!
While most all Americans believe in playing by the rules, we also know that some very devious, politically-motivated operatives have been trying to harm the Trump administration from before he even took the oath of office.
This fact should lead us to question how some allegations of voter fraud can be so easily dismissed by state election authorities.
We demand to know the truth, and, for the sake of our democracy, we demand that President Trump keep fighting to learn the truth.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition today!

In a statement issued on Monday, the Pennsylvania GOP said, “We took this procedural vote to preserve any legal claims that may be presented going forward.”
Nevada did likewise, with the Nevada GOP page posting a message saying, “History made today.”
Meanwhile, the chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, David Shafer, issued a statement explaining the reason behind Georgia GOP electors voting for Trump. “Because the President’s lawsuit contesting the Georgia election is still pending, the Republican nominees for Presidential Elector met today at noon at the State Capitol today and cast their votes for President and Vice President,” Shafer said. “Had we not met today and cast our votes, the President’s pending election contest would have been effectively mooted. Our action today preserves his rights under Georgia law.”
Reports show that the above states were further joined by Michigan and Wisconsin. In fact, seven states in total have had Republican electors cast votes for President Trump, thus enabling the president to continue his legal battle regarding the election.
Speaking to Fox News on Monday morning, Stephen Miller, a senior Trump campaign adviser, pointed to January 20 as the “only date in the Constitution” and said there is “more than enough time to right the wrong of this fraudulent election result and certify Donald Trump as the winner of the election.”
The purpose of the alternate Electoral College voters is to “preserve our rights to ensure an accurate and honest result to this election,” Miller explained.
“As we speak, today, an alternate slate of electors in the contested states is going to vote and we’re going to send those results up to Congress. This will ensure that all of our legal remedies remain open,” Miller continued. “That means that if we win these cases in the courts, that we can direct that the alternate slate of electors be certified. The state legislators in Georgia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania can do the same and likewise Congress has that opportunity as well to do the right thing. If you just cured three simple constitutional defects, Donald Trump’s the winner of this election.”
Electoral College votes, having been cast on December 14, are due to be officially counted on January 6 as part of a joint session of Congress, led by Vice President Mike Pence. Members of the House of Representatives can at this point raise objections to the electors’ votes. If for some reason neither Biden nor Trump were to get a majority of 270 votes, then the 435 members of the House would vote by state. While the Democrats hold a majority in the House, Republicans have a larger number of states under their control, so Trump could be re-elected in such a manner even at that late stage.
When questioned as to why the Trump campaign had not enjoyed overwhelming successes in their legal cases so far, Miller answered: “The pressure from the corrupt corporate media to make everybody cave and bend, is overwhelming, it is overwhelming. And so, yes, judges are caving, yes, politicians are caving. We need heroes to step up and do the right thing.”
Meanwhile, Biden gave a speech following the Electoral College results in which he made a dig at Trump, saying: “In America, politicians don't take power — the people grant it to them. The flame of democracy was lit in this nation a long time ago. And we now know that nothing — not even a pandemic or an abuse of power — can extinguish that flame.”
Miller, earlier in the day, soundly accused the Democrats of widespread fraud. “Think about it,” he stated. “Using the pretext of COVID, state Democrats unilaterally changed their election laws for one sole purpose, to facilitate fraud. They redid every single anti-fraud measure and they did it unilaterally. They did it illegally, and now they’re trying to cover up the results by opposing audits of the vote. You only do that if you want fraud and encourage fraud.”
