Congressman Mo Brooks House Floor Speech on Voter Fraud Describes When He Was Election Theft Target

2020/11/19

Washington, DC— Thursday, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) delivered a House Floor speech detailing his 1982 experience as a Republican candidate for Alabama House District 18 when Democrats sought to steal his election by rigging voting machines. This is the third House Floor speech in a series by Congressman Brooks concerning presidential election contest law, voter fraud and election theft.

Full text of Congressman Brooks’ speech:

Mr. Speaker, this is my third speech in a series.  Earlier, I cited Constitutional and federal law mandating that Congress, not the Supreme Court, determines whether to accept or reject state electoral college votes and Congress, not the Supreme Court, has the final verdict on presidential elections.

My remaining speeches describe voting system failures that threaten our Republic.

For emphasis, all republics depend on election processes that give candidates and citizens confidence that results accurately reflect voter will.

Unfortunately, America’s election process has systemic weaknesses that too often allow voter fraud and election theft . . . and fail America.

Today, I share my personal experience as a voter fraud and election theft target.

In 1982, Democrats dominated Alabama. 

All Alabama statewide elected officials were Democrats! 

The legislature had 136 Democrats to only 4 Republicans!

Democrats held every single partisan elected office in Alabama’s Tennessee Valley, from Mississippi on the west to Georgia on the east.

In 1982, I ran as a Republican in Alabama House District 18.

On Election Day morning, angry voters called me nonstop about voting machines blocking them from voting for Mo Brooks. 

At first, I blew these phone calls off as isolated problems, naively trusting America’s election system. That trust was soon shattered.

I am a former prosecutor.  After the election, another attorney and I investigated.  We questioned witnesses, examined documents and inspected voting machines.

Our investigation revealed that 11 of 45 voting machines –25% of all voting machines in my district – were rigged to block votes for Mo Brooks.

In contrast, not a single machine blocked voting for my opponent or any other candidate on the ballot!

At one voting precinct with five rigged voting machines, poll workers told voters that, to vote for Mo Brooks, they had to give up their secret ballot right and sign a sheet on a wall for all to see!

After the election, Democrat officials declared the voting machine problem was possibly caused by jostling in transit that somehow affected me but nobody else.

What bunk!

My hometown is the birthplace of America’s space program.  We know math. 

Mathematically, if there are 26 candidates, and a machine blocks 1 candidate’s votes, the odds of that candidate being blocked are 1 in 26.  If there are two machines and each block only one candidate, the odds of that candidate being blocked both times are 1 in 26 squared, or 1 chance out of 676 chances. 

Similarly, if there are 11 machines and each block a single candidate’s vote, the odds that all 11 blocked out candidates are Mo Brooks, and no one else, are 1 chance in 26 to the 11th power, which equals 1 chance out of 3.6 quadrillion chances.

Hence, the probability these 11 voting machines were rigged is an overwhelming 3.6 quadrillion to one. 

So, the question becomes, “Who rigged the voting machines?”

In 1982, Democrats totally controlled Madison County voting machines.

I was in a hotly contested race to be the only Republican legislator elected in the northern third of Alabama.  I threatened Democrat dominance.  I was the potential breach in the Democrat Party dam.

Democrats had motive.  Democrats had opportunity.  Democrats had control.  Democrats rigged the voting machines.

Fortunately, despite the attempted election theft, we still won with 57% of the vote.

Mr. Speaker, every candidate and every American has an absolute right to an election system that stops voter fraud, prevents election theft, and accurately records only lawful votes cast by eligible American citizens.

As this speech and ensuing speeches will reveal, America’s election system is riddled with systemic problems that too often render our official election results unreliable.

Each of these election deficiencies must be fixed and eliminated.

Congressman Mo Brooks: House, Not Supreme Court, Decides Presidential Elections

2020/11/18

Washington, DC— Wednesday, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) delivered a House floor speech on Constitutional and federal statutory law that gives Congress (NOT the Supreme Court) final and total control over who wins, and who loses, presidential elections.  This is the second speech in a series of speeches on the recent presidential election that Congressman Brooks will deliver on the House floor in the upcoming days and weeks.

Click on the image above or HERE for video of Congressman Brooks’ speech

Full text of Congressman Brooks’ speech:

This is the second in a series of House Floor Speeches by me on the recent presidential election.

Previously, I covered Constitutional and federal statutory law mandating that Congress, NOT the Supreme Court, decides whether to accept or reject states’ electoral college vote submissions.

Today’s remarks focus on who decides a presidential election if no candidate receives an electoral college majority vote, because of a tie, because multiple candidates split the electoral college vote, or because Congress rejected state electoral college votes.

Per the U.S. Constitution’s 12th Amendment, Congress, NOT the Supreme Court, elects the next President and Vice-President of the United States if no candidate wins an electoral college vote majority.

Congress’s decision is final, determinative, and non-reviewable.

The 12th Amendment states, that, if no candidate has a majority of the electoral college vote, then, from the three hgiest vote-getters for President (Quote):

“the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; … and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice.”

As an aside, the 12th Amendment requires the Senate to elect the Vice-President.

There is a twist in the House vote for president.  A majority of Congressmen does not elect the president.  Rather, the House votes by state delegations to elect the next President of the United States.  

America has 50 states.  After the 2020 elections, 26 state delegations have a Republican majority.  Twenty states have a Democrat majority.  The remaining state delegations are tied, 50/50, with Iowa undecided pending an uncalled election.

Hence, if Congress rejects electoral college votes from states with election processes that are so badly flawed as to be unreliable and unworthy of acceptance, House Republicans control the election of the next President of the United States.

Let me repeat that for emphasis, House Republicans control the election of the next President of the United States.

For emphasis, the 12th Amendment has, on occasion, resulted in Congress electing the next President of the United States.

For example, in 1824, Andrew Jackson led the electoral college with 99 votes, to 85 votes for John Quincy Adams, to 41 votes for William Crawford, to 37 votes for House Speaker Henry Clay.  

The House elected 2nd place finisher John Quincy Adams President of the United States over 1st place finisher Andrew Jackson, prompting Andrew Jackson to famously declare (quote) “[T]he Judas of the West has closed the contract and will receive the thirty pieces of silver . . . Was there ever witnessed such a bare faced corruption in any country before?”

Another example is the 1876 election, wherein Democrat Samuel Tilden won the popular vote and amassed 184 electoral college votes, one shy of Ohio Republican Rutherford B. Hayes’ 185 electoral college votes.  

Louisiana, Florida and South Carolina’s electoral college votes were disputed because it strained credibility to believe these states voted Republican while still suffering from the effects of a Republican led invasion during the Civil War.

Congress appointed a 15-member commission to study the matter, which split on party lines, 8 Republicans for Hayes to 7 Democrats for Tilden.

Congress then elected Hayes President of the United States in a deal that gave Louisiana, Florida and South Carolina’s disputed electoral college votes to Hayes in exchange for removing occupying Union troops from the South and ending Reconstruction.

In sum, the history and law are clear.  Congress, NOT the Supreme Court, determines who wins, or loses, presidential elections.

Congressman Mo Brooks Kicks Off House Floor Speech Series on Election Integrity's Importance to a Properly Functioning Republic

2020/11/17

Washington, DC— Tuesday, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) delivered a House floor speech on Congress’s decisive role in determining the outcome of presidential elections. This is the first speech in a series Congressman Brooks will deliver on election integrity’s importance to a properly functioning republic.

Click on the image above or HERE for video of Congressman Brooks’ speech

 

Full text of Congressman Brooks’ speech:

This is the first in a series of House Floor Speeches by me on the recent presidential election.

Some believe the Supreme Court decides who wins presidential elections.  That is wrong.  While the Supreme Court has a significant judicial role in the presidential election process, the U.S. Constitution and federal law make Congress, NOT the Supreme Court, the judge of who wins presidential elections.

Congress must first accept or reject states’ submissions of electoral college votes.

Thereafter, if no candidate wins an electoral college vote majority, Congress, NOT the Supreme Court, votes on and elects the next President and Vice-President of the United States.

The Constitution’s 12th Amendment requires states to submit their electoral college votes to Congress, thereby triggering U.S. Code Title 3, Section 15, which requires that:

First, Congress shall meet January 6 following the election, at 1:00 PM, to receive states’ electoral college vote submissions.

Second, the Senate President presides over all proceedings.

Third, each state’s electoral college submissions shall be opened, presented, and acted upon in alphabetical order, beginning with the letter A.

Fourth, the Senate President shall receive and publicly announce each state’s electoral college vote.

Fifth, the Senate President shall call for objections, if any. Objections must be in writing and clearly and concisely state, without argument, the objection grounds.  Further, each objection must be signed by at least one Senator and one Congressman or be disallowed.

Sixth, the Senate and House shall then separate, and each body shall then decide whether to accept or reject electoral college votes that have been properly objected to.

Finally, if the House and Senate both vote to reject a state’s electoral college vote submission, those electoral college votes shall not be counted in the election of the president and vice-president.

United States Code Title 3, Section 17 adds that the Senate and House votes to accept or reject electoral college votes must occur immediately after no more than two hours of floor debate.

This process has been used in the past to challenge states’ electoral college votes.

For example, in 2005, Democrat Congressman Stephanie Tubbs and Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer jointly objected to acceptance of Ohio’s electoral college votes for Republican President George Bush after Ohio election officials certified that George Bush won Ohio by almost 120,000 votes.

Similarly, in 2017, numerous Democrat Congressmen objected to all electoral college votes for Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump from the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.  These objections all failed for lack of a Senate cosponsor.

In sum, the U.S. Constitution and federal law mandate that, on January 6, 2021, Congress must decide whether to accept or reject states’ submissions of electoral college votes for president.

If a Congressman and Senator jointly object, then the full House and full Senate must each vote on whether to accept or reject a state’s electoral college vote submission.  That vote by Congress is final, determinative, and non-reviewable.

If a state’s electoral college votes are rejected, then those electoral college votes are excluded from candidate totals.

My second speech in this series covers what happens if, because of rejected electoral college votes, neither candidate has the majority of electoral college votes needed to be elected president.

YELLOWHAMMERNEWS.COM: Brooks, Byrne, Aderholt, Marshall file legal briefs supporting exclusion of illegal aliens from congressional apportionment

2020/10/31


Alabama Congressmen Mo Brooks, Bradley Byrne, & Robert Aderholt File Amicus Brief To U.S. Supreme Court to Protect Citizens' Equal Protection Voting Rights

2020/10/30

Washington, DC— Friday, Alabama Congressmen Mo Brooks, Bradley Byrne & Robert Aderholt submitted an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in Trump v. New York, a case to resolve whether illegal aliens should be counted for the limited purpose of allocating Congressional seats and electoral college votes that determine the election of the President of the United States.

By way of background, a three-judge panel in the Southern District of New York issued a September 10, 2020 order blocking Trump Administration efforts to protect American citizen Equal Protection one-person, one vote rights from dilution caused by the counting of illegal aliens in the allocation of Congressional seats and electoral college votes. The Trump Administration sought review of the lower court’s decision and the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to that review request.

Congressman Brooks’ amicus brief supports President Trump’s Memorandum and references the pending federal Northern District of Alabama case of Alabama & Congressman Mo Brooks v. U.S. Census Bureau, which similarly challenges the Constitutionality of including illegal aliens in the 2020 Census count for the limited purpose of distributing political power among the states.

Oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in Trump v. New York are scheduled for November 30, 2020.

Click HERE to view the amicus brief

Summary of the Trump v. New York amicus brief submitted by Congressman Brooks:

  • 14th Amendment Equal Protection, one-person, one-vote principles should be based on the population of persons lawfully in America, to specifically exclude illegal aliens.
  • The Southern District of New York’s decision errs by gutting long-standing Equal Protection, one-person, one-vote principles by including illegal aliens whose very presence is prohibited by federal law.
  • The Southern District of New York’s decision erroneously rewards “sanctuary” cities, counties and states that violate federal Immigration law by giving them disproportionate federal power in Congress and the election of presidents, to the detriment of law-abiding states like Alabama.

Congressman Brooks said, “Trump v. New York is one of the most consequential cases to ever come before the U.S. Supreme Court. It quite literally will determine America’s future for decades to come. Including illegal aliens (who, by definition, are transients and not residents of any state) in the census apportionment count undermines 14thAmendment Equal Protection, one-person, one-vote principles. That’s why the State of Alabama (represented by Attorney General Steve Marshall) and I support President Trump’s efforts to exclude illegal aliens from the 2020 Census count used to apportion political power among the states.”

Brooks continued, “There are anywhere from eleven million (2010 Census estimate) to twenty-five million illegal aliens in America (no one knows for sure). Those numbers equate to roughly 15 to 33 Congressional seats and electoral college votes unconstitutionally taken from law-abiding, low-illegal alien population states like Alabama and shifted to high-illegal alien population, sanctuary states like California. Alabama is likely to lose a Congressional seat and electoral college vote after the 2020 census if the apportionment count includes illegal aliens, which, in turn, significantly diminishes Alabama’s influence in Congress and presidential elections. Sanctuary states that flout federal law and therefore have high illegal alien populations should not be rewarded for their lawlessness.”

Brooks concluded, “The U.S. Supreme Court has a consequential decision to make. Will it support lawlessness or will it support the Rule of Law and Equal Protection, one-person, one vote principles that have been the backbone of federal redistributing law for many decades? I hope our amicus brief helps the Court understand the ramifications of this case and persuades it to correctly decide this matter in favor of American citizens.”

Boom! 33.1% Annualized GDP Growth Spurred by GOP Governors Limiting or Ending Shutdowns

2020/10/29

Washington, DC— Thursday, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) celebrated the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis’ report that America’s economy grew at a record 33.1% annualized rate in the 3rd quarter.[1]

Congressman Brooks said, “The American economy grew at an astounding 33.1% rate in the 3rd quarter, the best ever! That’s huge! 33.1% is nearly twice America’s 1950 quarterly economic growth record.[2] Per the White House Council of Economic Advisors, America has recovered two-thirds of the economic decline caused by dangerous city and state government shutdowns. It certainly has helped that the federal government has stopped paying people $600/week to NOT work!”

Brooks continued, “President Trump said last month that the economic recovery from government-imposed economic shutdowns would be ‘V-shaped.’[3] He’s right! After a 31.4% GDP decrease in the 2nd quarter caused by the economic depressant effects of Mayor and Governor shutdowns, coupled with paying people more to stay home than work, the American economy took off like a rocket. It’s encouraging to see such resilience in the American economy and the American people. But it’s frightening that there are so many candidates across America who want to return to even more draconian government shutdowns and want to pay even more people more money not to work. Quite clearly, America’s economic future is on the ballot this Tuesday. Prosperity or poverty. The voters will soon decide.”

Congressman Mo Brooks Stands Up for Alabama Jobs Against Evil Communist Chinese Trade Practices

2020/10/27

Washington, DC— Tuesday, on behalf of Wellborn Cabinets in Ashland, Alabama, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) joined 34 of his House and Senate colleagues in sending a letter to U.S. Commerce Department Secretary Wilbur Ross and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan expressing concerns regarding evidence that Communist Chinese businesses may be engaged in transshipment, circumvention, and evasion of antidumping and countervailing duty orders on kitchen and bathroom cabinets.

Click HERE to view the letter.

Congressman Brooks said, “According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, America’s trade deficit for the month of August (the most recent data available) was $67.1 billion.[1] Of that $67.1 billion, America’s trade deficit with Communist China was $26.4 billion.[2] This year to date, America’s trade deficit with Communist China is $193.1 billion.[3] That’s a $193.1 billion transfer to China, America’s geopolitical foe, that they are using to build up their military and economic might. America cannot afford to hemorrhage money to Communist China. America needs to get tough on Communist China, and do it fast.”

Brooks concluded,“When Communist China is found to engage in evil trade practices that harm American companies and threaten American jobs, we have to aggressively fight back. For too long, America rolled over and refused to confront Communist China’s evil trade practices. That’s why we have such huge deficits. That’s why we are hemorrhaging money to our geopolitical foe that they’re using against us. I urge Secretary Ross and Acting Commissioner Morgan to protect American jobs and aggressively pursue all options in stopping the outflow of money from America to Communist China.”

 

The text of the letter to Ross and Morgan follows:

Dear Secretary Ross and Acting Commissioner Morgan,

We write to you on behalf of constituent businesses across the country that manufacture kitchen and bathroom cabinets. These companies are part of the United States’ diverse manufacturing sector, providing good-paying jobs and bolstering local economies across our towns, cities, and states.

While we recognize the benefits of global trade, we agree with these companies and their employees that trade must be conducted fairly. The industry filed antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) petitions against imports from China in 2019 to address concerns about unfair trade practices. The resulting investigation found material injury caused by unfairly-traded imports, and duties were imposed to level the playing field against these imports.

It is our understanding, however, that the domestic industry has found evidence that Chinese businesses may be engaged in transshipment, circumvention, and evasion of the AD/CVD orders. Our companies have availed themselves of the opportunity to file claims through the Customs e-allegation and Enforce and Protect Act (EAPA) programs. These are serious allegations that, if true, undermine the recovery of our constituent companies as they attempt to reclaim lost U.S. market share, even after undertaking the time and expense of participating in the AD and CVD investigations. As such, we urge you to conduct a prompt and thorough investigation of these claims and take swift action to address all attempts to evade these orders.

Thank you for your attention to this matter and we look forward to your response.

 

Sincerely,

###

On November 6, 2018, Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) was re-elected as the Representative for Alabama’s 5th Congressional District. He proudly represents the people of the Tennessee Valley and serves on two influential House committees: Armed Services and Science, Space, and Technology. Congressman Brooks serves on three important House subcommittees: the Strategic Forces and Readiness subcommittees on Armed Services and the Space subcommittee on Science, Space, and Technology.

Now in his 5th term, Congressman Brooks’ seniority has improved to #11 out of 26 Republicans on Armed Services and #2 out of 15 Republicans on Science, Space, and Technology.

Congressman Brooks is highly active and engaged in representing the interests of the 5th District.

Congressman Brooks successfully inserted 25 Tennessee Valley defense community policy priorities into the Fiscal Year 2019 National Defense Authorization Act. Those provisions include, but are not limited to: Standard Missile 3 (SM-3) Block IB multiyear procurement, Hypersonics development, Improved Turbine Engine, Short Range Air Defense, and the Army’s Iron Dome interceptor system.

In the 115th Congress, Congressman Brooks’ bill, the “American Leadership in Space Technology and Advanced Rocketry Act” or “ALSTAR Act” successfully passed the U.S. House. The “ALSTAR” Act would formally designate Alabama’s Marshall Space Flight Center as NASA’s lead center for rocket propulsion. In addition, the ALSTAR Act would direct Marshall to explore, develop, coordinate and mature new rocket propulsion technology in cooperation with government and private sector partners.

Growing up in North Alabama, Mo Brooks’ parents taught him early on that study and hard work were expected and required. They also taught him the importance of honesty, and to never be shy about speaking up and fighting for important principles. Brooks was born in 1954 in Charleston, South Carolina, and moved in 1963 to Huntsville, Alabama. Congressman Brooks’ father, Jack Brooks, retired from Redstone Arsenal’s Metrology Center. Brooks’ mother, Betty Brooks, taught economics and government for over 20 years at Lee High School in Huntsville.

Congressman Brooks graduated from Grissom High School in 1972 (where he was all-city in baseball and an active member on two state championship debate teams). He graduated from Duke University in three years with a double major in political science and economics, with highest honors in economics. In 1978, he graduated from the University of Alabama Law School.

After graduation, Congressman Brooks worked as a prosecutor in the Tuscaloosa District Attorney’s office, where he built a solid “tough-on-crime” reputation. While there, he obtained guilty verdicts in every one of the 20-plus jury trials he prosecuted. He also organized and managed the grand jury.

Congressman Brooks left the Tuscaloosa District Attorney’s office in 1980 to return to Huntsville as a law clerk for presiding Circuit Court Judge John David Snodgrass. In 1982,

Brooks was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives and became one of 11 Republican legislators (out of 140 total) and the only elected Republican legislator north of Birmingham.

Brooks was re-elected to the Alabama House in 1983, 1986, and 1990. While in the legislature, he was elected Republican House Caucus Chairman three times and was ranked number one (out of 140 legislators) by the Alabama Taxpayers’ Defense Fund in the fight to protect family incomes from higher taxes. He was also ranked in the top 20 percent by Alabama Alliance of Business & Industry on pro-jobs, tort reform, and free enterprise issues and was recognized as one of the legislature’s most effective legislators by Alabama Magazine.

In 1991, Brooks was appointed Madison County District Attorney. In 1996, he ran for the Madison County Commission and unseated an eight-year incumbent Republican. He was re-elected to the Commission in 2000, 2004, and 2008. During every year except when he was serving as a prosecutor or court clerk, Brooks was a private practice attorney. In 1995-1996, he was appointed Special Assistant Attorney General for then Attorney General Jeff Sessions and, from 1996-2002, was appointed Special Assistant Attorney General for then Attorney General Bill Pryor.

In 1976, Congressman Brooks married Martha Jenkins of Toledo; they met at Duke University. Martha graduated from the University of Alabama with an accounting degree. She later retired as a certified public accountant and obtained a math and education major from the University of Alabama in Huntsville in 2005. She taught math at Whitesburg Middle School. Mo and Martha are the proud parents of four children and grandparents of ten grandchildren.

Congressman Brooks was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives on November 2, 2010.
