If the 2020 election is deemed fraudulent or even just riddled with too many “errors” to produce an uncontested outcome, then state legislators have the ultimate constitutional authority to decide the winner.
Article originally published at Natural News.
This is the perspective of constitutional attorneys William J. Olson and Patrick M. McSweeney who contend that state legislatures have a “constitutional duty” to go even so far as to override individual state-certified results in the event of “a contested presidential election.”
In a rebuttal piece to a column written by former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy for the National Review, Olson and McSweeney explain using the Constitution as backing that the American people “deserve an honest accounting of who won,” which has not yet occurred.
“During the 2020 presidential election, many of the so-called swing states, including Arizona, saw unprecedented – and unlawful – erosions of procedural safeguards as well as administration irregularities on Election Day,” they reveal.
“With respect to identifying and remediating fraudulent or mistaken results, it is now or never, whatever can be done must be done.”
In the event of a “prima facie case” of “substantial computerized election fraud” that bears evidence of votes being tabulated overseas, software swapping votes, and strange ballots marked only for Joe Biden coming out of nowhere – all of this occurred in the 2020 election – it is up to state legislatures to take the reins and vote accordingly.
McCarthy, on the other hand, “would have even those state legislators who become fully persuaded that the count was fraudulent to sit back and see the person that their constituents actually elected be de-throned by CNN and National Review,” Olson and McSweeney write.
CNN does NOT decide elections
As a little background, Olson served as a member on a committee for the President’s Export Council. He was also a member of Ronald Reagan’s transition team back in 1980, and further worked as an official in the U.S. Department of Transportation.
McSweeney served as executive director of the Virginia Commission on State Government Management, as well as a law clerk at the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Both of these men are constitutional experts who have come to the conclusion that there is no way Biden legitimately won the election. There are simply too many unexplained anomalies and problems, most of which are being ignored or even scoffed at by the media and the Democrat establishment.
That fake news outlets like CNN have been quick to reject “significant evidence” of election fraud speaks volumes about their integrity. The good news, however, is that the media does not decide elections, and neither do corrupted voting machines, illegal voters or Twitter.
According to the United States Constitution, “total authority” has been vested to state legislators to select electors, or not. Whatever they decide, it is up to them to decide it, “not governors, secretaries of state, or pundits,” Olson and McSweeney emphasized.
In Arizona, for instance, the current vote spread, even with apparent fraud, is only about 10,000 votes. This is so minute that it would be remiss to just hand the state to Biden, especially when election “irregularities” in the state were rampant.
Olson and McSweeney note that some people voted twice in Arizona, while others voted from the grave. There were also illegal aliens who voted, along with people who no longer even live in Arizona.
“No state constitution, state law, or state court can alter or constrain that grant of power,” the duo notes about how state legislatures will, in fact, have the final election say, a process that has already been decided with precedent in the Supreme Court.
Not only that, but state legislatures have “a duty to thoroughly investigate the claims of fraud and ensure that a lawful election has taken place.”

COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
