House Minority Whip and Representative from Louisiana Steve Scalise stated on Saturday that the presidential election is not over, becoming the first Congressional Republican leader to comment on the matter after Democrat Joe Biden was declared the president-elect by multiple mainstream media outlets.
As many on the right expected, the mainstream media quickly fell in line with the announcement of Joe Biden’s “victory,” ignoring numerous examples of voter fraud, “glitches” in vote-counting software, and other shady situations surrounding the election.
Representative Scalise has asserted that the official outcome of the election cannot be determined until all legal challenges have been resolved.
“The election isn’t over until all legal votes are counted and certified. There are still serious legal challenges that have been made, and until that process is resolved, the election is not final. The American people deserve a fair and transparent process,” Rep. Scalise said on Twitter Saturday afternoon.

The left is already stepping up their rhetoric, accusing President Trump and his Republican allies in Congress of sowing doubt in our election system because of the legal challenges. Nancy Pelosi went as far as calling them “domestic enemies” live on MSNBC:
🚨 Disgusting: Nancy Pelosi just called Republicans "domestic enemies.”
I was shot because of this kind of unhinged rhetoric.

Democrats and their allies in mainstream media are also angry about their predicted “blue wave” not going as planned. Instead of Republicans losing seats in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, they actually gained seats, retaining their majority in the Senate.
The pollsters and the pundits said Republicans would LOSE 10-15 seats in the House.
What actually happened: Republicans GAINED a large number of seats, welcoming our most diverse class of conservatives ever.

Due to their losses, Democrats likely will not be able to implement their agenda as planned, even if Joe Biden does win the election.
Many Americans are happy to see Republicans actually fighting for once, rather than rolling over and submitting to the Democrats. Representative Scalise called for American citizens to demand transparency, the counting of all legal votes, observation of ballot sorting and counting by both parties, and election laws to be enforced as written.
Every single American citizen should be demanding all of this:
– Count all legal votes
– Do not count any illegal votes
– Observation of ballot sorting and counting by both parties
– Election laws enforced as written
Republicans won’t quit fighting.
