Next week marks the start of a new year and some very interesting events in the political world.
The happenings of January 3 – January 9 are going to make a major difference in the nation, impacting politics and citizens’ lives for quite some time to come.
What to Expect Next Week
On the evening of Monday, January 4, President Trump will be traveling to Georgia’s Dalton Regional Airport to hold a final Defend the Majority rally.
This rally is meant to urge Georgia conservatives to get out the next day and vote for Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. In order for the GOP to continue controlling the Senate, at least one of these Georgia Republicans has to win their races.
It’s a great New Year’s Eve morning in Marietta!
Thanks to everyone who joined us early for our Senate Firewall Tour.

Tuesday marks Election Day for the Georgia special elections; however, political experts have already come out and stated that the runoff results are highly unlikely to be known on January 5. The record number of votes in these races is a major factor in the almost-guaranteed delay in results.
Then, on Wednesday, Congress is scheduled for a meeting that involves certifying Joe Biden’s electoral college votes. Multiple Republicans in the House and Senate have vowed to oppose this process. In light of all this, President Trump is returning to the White House early in preparation for the new year, confirms Breitbart News.
Trump’s Early Return to the White House
The president and first lady are both heading back to the White House today, as opposed to celebrating at his Mar-a-Lago estate.
Trump has kept the country informed about his plans for next week via Twitter. Many of the president’s latest posts revolve around January 6 as the ultimate test of the United States Constitution. Likewise, the president has spoken extensively about voter fraud and even called out those who he views as obstructing the work for a free and fair election.
The United States had more votes than it had people voting, by a lot. This travesty cannot be allowed to stand. It was a Rigged Election, one not even fit for third world countries!

The team for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris stated that proceedings on January 6 serve as nothing other than formalities. Moreover, a Biden aide informed the press this week that the objections from congressional Republicans will not stop Biden from being formally inaugurated as the next president of the United States.
Supporters of Trump are expected to travel to the nation’s capital on Wednesday in protest against the day’s congressional proceedings.
