What are the implications of “ballot harvesting?”

First of all, what is “ballot harvesting?”

Luis Gomez of the San Diego Union-Tribune say, ‘“Ballot harvesting’ is political jargon for a practice in which organized workers or volunteers collect absentee ballots from certain voters and drop them off at a polling place or election office.”

Prior to 2016, turning in absentee ballots was restricted to just relatives of or those living in the same household as the voter.

Since 2016, any person is allowed to collect a mail-in ballot, or thousands of mail-in ballots, from voters and turn in the mail ballot to a polling place or the registrar’s office.

Can you begin to see the potential problems here?

While critics of the new absentee ballot laws are complaining about the potential for voter fraud, the proponents of the new laws say it allows more eligible citizens to participate in elections.  Ya…, even those “eligible citizens” who had no intention of voting, or better yet…, “eligible citizens” who aren’t “eligible,” or those “eligible citizens” who aren’t even “citizens,” or those “eligible citizens” who aren’t even real, live, people!

balloth 4

The Heritage Foundation calls it the “tool of choice for vote thieves.”

In California, ballot harvesting was used to flip seven Republican seats to the Democratic column in 2018.

According to former congressman and Fox News contributor, Jason Chaffetz, “The indication that ballot harvesting made the difference in California can be found in the vote proportions. Studies of absentee voters have consistently shown they tend to reflect the population or lean slightly to the right. But when ballot harvesting was deployed in California, we saw late ballots break heavily for Democrats.”

“Take, for example, the race between former Republican Rep. David Valadao and Democrat T. J. Cox in California’s rural 21st district. When polls closed, Valadao led Cox by 6,000 votes — or 8 percent. That margin was wide enough for media outlets to call the race for Valadao.”

“However, late ballots delivered by third-party groups broke so heavily for Cox that he ultimately eked out an 843-vote victory. The results after ballot harvesting were very different from the polling before the race and since.”

So the new election game plan is to see how many votes your candidate is losing by after all of the conventional votes have been cast, then go back and produce as many absentee ballot votes as you need to win.

Brilliant!

Too bad it’s also cheating and illegal.

What is the voting scenario going to be if both parties decide to partake of this practice?

First the traditional voting takes place…, then one party produces enough votes to jump ahead…, then the other party produces enough votes to jump back ahead…, then the other party, then the other party, and so on and so on.

When would the voting end?

With this scenario, we could have 500,000 votes cast in a district with only 200,000 eligible voters!

Something needs to be done about this whole absentee ballot situation.

I’d like to refer to a couple of my previous blogs to offer-up some answers.

The first blog is from November 5, 2018, and is titled, “It’s not “just” one vote.  It’s MY one vote!”

If the American people lose confidence in the integrity of our election system, we are one big step closer to our republic dissolving right before our eyes.

We hear about examples of voter fraud, and liberals (And please note: The issue of voter fraud is almost exclusively synonymous with liberals/democrats) are always quick to discount our voter fraud concerns as “not that prevalent,” “inconsequential,” “unfounded,” or “very rare.”  Then they will quickly turn the discussion to the “real” problem, in their minds, of voter suppression, which truly is virtually a non-existent problem.

Anyone who wants to vote in this country surely gets every opportunity to do so.

Can you imagine how quickly the “biased, liberal, fake news media” would jump on any credible case of voter suppression?

balloth 7

I rest my case.

Okay.  Back to the concerns about voter fraud.

The big question is how many fraudulent votes are acceptable?

Who’s going to the first one to stand up and volunteer to have their vote cancelled out by a fraudulent vote?

Not me.

And I’m guessing not you either.

The right to vote in a free and fair election is our most basic civil right, and one on which many other rights of the American people depend.

Our government should be able to guarantee that every eligible individual who wants to vote can, and that no one’s vote is stolen or discounted.

Voter fraud is real and hundreds of convictions have been made and documented.

balloth 2

According to The Heritage Foundation:

Contrary to the claims of many liberals, the problem of voter fraud is as old as the country itself.  As the U.S. Supreme Court noted when it upheld Indiana’s voter identification law in 2008, “flagrant examples” of voter fraud “have been documented throughout this Nation’s history by respected historians and journalists.”

Attempts to commandeer election results have been documented dating back to the 1800’s.  In one New York election in 1844, 55,000 votes were recorded even though there were only 41,000 eligible voters. Decades later, these efforts have continued and determined fraudsters have become only more creative in their efforts to fix the outcome of elections.

So what are the different types of election fraud that liberals use in an attempt to undermine our election system?  Well, here they are:

Impersonation fraud at the polls: Voting in the name of other legitimate voters and voters who have died, moved away, lost their right to vote for some reason, but remain registered.

False registrations: Voting under fraudulent voter registrations that either use a phony name and a real or fake address or claim residence in a particular jurisdiction where the registered voter does not actually live and is not entitled to vote.

Duplicate voting: Registering in multiple locations and voting in the same election in more than one jurisdiction or state.

Fraudulent use of absentee ballots: Requesting absentee ballots and voting without the knowledge of the actual voter; or obtaining the absentee ballot from a voter and either filling it in directly and forging the voter’s signature or illegally telling the voter who to vote for.

Buying votes: Paying voters to cast either an in-person or absentee ballot for a particular candidate.

Illegal “assistance” at the polls: Forcing or intimidating voters, particularly the elderly, disabled, illiterate, and those for whom English is a second language, to vote for particular candidates while supposedly providing them with “assistance.”

Ineligible voting: Illegal registration and voting by individuals who are not U.S. citizens, or are otherwise not eligible to vote.

Manipulating someone’s vote automatically at the voting machine.

Altering the vote count: Changing the actual vote count either in a precinct or at the central location where votes are counted.

Altering the vote count: Changing the actual vote count either in a precinct or at the central location where votes are counted.

So, who is responsible for ensuring the integrity of our elections?

Each state is generally responsible for the administration of its own electoral systems, including elections for federal office.  This being the case, I feel we open ourselves up to many problems, mostly because the states don’t have access to national databases, which presents the possibility of citizens being registered in multiple states and voting in multiple states.

Of course MrEricksonRules has his own remedy for all of our voting integrity woes!

First, our government needs to establish a new national holiday called “Election Day,” of course.  This would offer everyone every opportunity and ample time to vote.  Especially those people who work for a living.

balloth 5

There would be no “early” voting.  All voting would occur on Election Day.

All voting machines would be identical, and issued to the states by the federal government.

Polling stations would be manned by current federal and/or state employees.  This would give us a level of accountability we currently don’t have.

All votes would have to be cast in person.  The practice of using absentee ballots would be discontinued.  Military personnel would vote at their duty stations and their votes would be routed to their corresponding state based on a military database.  Others unable to be in their “home” state to vote on Election Day would be able to cast a provisional ballot in the state they were physically in, then each state would then be responsible for sending these votes to their respective states.  These votes would only be counted if the total number of provisional votes could potentially change the outcome of the election.

Every adult individual would be required to obtain a Federal Voter Identification Card, if they want to vote.

An initial “national voter database” would be established by cross referencing the IRS database, national military databases, national benefit databases, Social Security databases, along with Medicare and Medicaid databases.

Initial Federal Voter Identification Cards would then be mailed out based on this database.  People not receiving cards by a given date would then be responsible for acquiring a card at designated state or federal locations.

Any person voting who could not be verified on the national voter database would be casting a provisional ballot.

Once you have voted, this would be entered into the national voting database, which would limit you from voting again, in the current election.

There you go.

Problem solved.

Any other problems or issues of national importance may be submitted at any time to Mr. Erickson at MrEricksonRules.com.

“The right to vote cannot come before the integrity of the vote.  They have to go hand in hand.” – Mr. Erickson

Joseph Stalin, who ruled the Soviet Union (Russia) from the mid-1920s until his death in 1953, said, “It doesn’t matter how many people vote, only who counts the votes.”

ballot 20

“We do not have government by the majority.  We have government by the majority who participate.” – Thomas Jefferson

“A vote is like a rifle: its usefulness depends upon the character of the user.” – President Teddy Roosevelt

The second blog is from August 7, 2018, and is titled, “Voting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say ‘one vote per citizen’ till it be morrow.” ― Will Shakespeare (not to be confused with William Shakespeare)

While there are many groups and organizations out there that deal with the right to vote, there are not many out there that promote our right to make sure our vote counts.

Which is more serious, obstructing someone’s right to vote or negating someone’s vote with an illegal ballot?

I would argue that both scenarios are just as serious in their own rights.

I feel the penalties for defrauding our voting systems should be increased significantly.  The penalties for tampering with votes should be quite severe in any case.

Just as violating someone’s civil rights to cast a vote is a serious crime, with stiff penalties, so too it should be a very serious crime to negate, or steal, the vote of others by casting illegal/fraudulent ballots.

If we as a country cannot be confident in the integrity of our elections, we are on a slippery slope towards anarchy.

Our voting laws and procedures should also strike a balance between the right to vote and the right to have your vote count.

All US citizens should be eligible to vote, of course, along with the following considerations:

There should be no early voting.  Voting should take place on one day.  This one day should be a national holiday, so everyone has time to vote.

There should be no absentee voting or mail-in ballots, except for people serving our military or government overseas, and this should be strictly controlled.

A photo ID should be required.  Either a driver’s license or a state ID card, with an address of residence.

Along with the photo ID, a social security card should also be presented, identifying the person as a US citizen.

A federal election should be covered by federal election laws, not differing state laws.

Just recently I read an article by Lukas Mikelionis of Fox News.  In his article, he points out that, “The names of non-US citizens are increasingly being found on our voter rolls, thanks to covert registration methods, with nothing actually stopping them from casting a ballot in an election.”

In a recent example, Mikelionis relates the story of Elizaveta Shuvalova, a Russian citizen who became a U.S. citizen only last year in 2017, but was oddly registered as an eligible voter in 2012 and added to the San Francisco voter rolls, according to The Washington Times.

“She was perplexed to find herself in the voter rolls, saying she wasn’t an American citizen and didn’t even register to vote.”

“‘I’ve never registered for anything in my entire life,’ Shuvalova told the paper. ‘This is news to me.’”

He went on to explain that, “The woman’s voter log shows that she signed up as a Democrat in July 2012.  In 2016, her registration was canceled after she informed election authorities that she wasn’t eligible to vote because she wasn’t yet a U.S. citizen.”

(Hmm, she was illegally signed up to vote as a democrat of all things!  How unusual…NOT!)

“‘This is definitely a shocker to me.  It is like an identity fraud because this is not coming from me,’ the woman, who identifies as a Democrat, said. ‘Like I told you, I haven’t even been a citizen during that time frame.  So what can we do about it?’”

“But the case of Shuvalova is part of a larger concern some groups have when it comes to the integrity of our elections.  They claim that stories like hers are a common occurrence in many parts of the country.”

“The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), a nonprofit specializing in election integrity, found that non-Americans are being added to voter rolls in states such as Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Virginia as well.”

“For instance, in 2017, the group found that nearly 5,600 people on the voter rolls in Virginia were deemed as non-citizens, with a third of them voting in previous elections.”

(That equates to 5,600 actual citizens being robbed of their vote by having their vote cancelled out in many cases!)

“‘All of this could have been prevented if states actually verified citizen eligibility upfront,’ said PILF research director Logan Churchwell.”

“John Arntz, director of the San Francisco Department of Elections, told the Times that a signed registration card was submitted to the office to qualify the woman as a signer of the petition.  He added that activists often distribute registration cards along with their petitions.”

“Normally, election authorities should check the registration application with other databases such as the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles and the secretary of state’s office to ensure the person is a citizen.”

(Yes, Mr. Arntz, checking these databases should be done, but apparently it isn’t being done, and you don’t seemed too overly concerned about it either.)

“The San Francisco election official said that Shuvalova could have easily gotten away with voting in elections before 2016 and she probably would have remained on the voter rolls as an eligible voter had she not informed officials.”

(Just another example of those damn Russians, oops, I mean those damn Democrats, meddling in our elections!)

“But Arntz told the Times that the woman’s story isn’t a reflection on whole the integrity of the election system.  (Of course it isn’t!)  ‘If it was a problem, this would be an issue that comes up every election or something we would have experienced more through time.  But it doesn’t,’ he said.”

(Oh, it happens alright.  You just haven’t been forced to acknowledge it until now.)

“‘I can’t remember forwarding an allegation that someone was a non-citizen who registered to vote or did vote,’ Arntz said.  He added that, ‘Nobody in San Francisco has yet been prosecuted for being a non-citizen on the voter rolls.”

(Yes, Mr. Arntz, and therein lies the problem.)

Tampering with the vote is an insidious crime that is like a cancer attacking the soul of our country.  This cancer must be dealt with, and it must be dealt with harshly and in no uncertain terms.

Where’s the “quid pro quo?”  Look at “quid pro Joe!”

ajoe 9

Now that the impeachment attempt (the coup attempt) against President Trump has failed miserably for the democrats…, what are we left with?

ajoe 8

I’m sure we’ll have a pathetic vote in Congress to still impeach the president, even though their witch hunt (part two) failed to uncover ANYTHING President Trump actually did wrong.

ajoe 12

The Senate will then dispatch the fraudulent impeachment fairy tale in short order, and the democrats will be left to concoct yet another anti-Trump fairy tale.

The democrats and their co-conspirators, the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” will not be getting the impeachment of The President for Christmas!

They have not been very nice, but rather quite naughty!

Quite a few democrats and fake news journalists” will be finding coal (“beautiful clean burning coal”) in their Christmas stockings this year!

I also have a feeling that the upcoming Senate hearings and the newly announced investigations by the Ukrainian government will combine to make 2020 a bad year for Joe and Hunter Biden, the democrats, and the deep state in general.

It’s a wonderful life!

With the Inspector General’s report dealing with FISA court abuses, and U.S. Attorney John Durham’s criminal inquiry into the origins of the Russia investigation results coming out just in time for Christmas, 2020 is shaping up to be a bad year for the democrats, which will be capped by another crushing defeat at the hands of President Trump and all of the loyalist American deplorables!

What are we left with if we ban anything that bothers anyone?

The answer is a paralyzed hot mess.

A “free” society is not a society that is worried about an individual’s feelings above all else.

A “free” society is a society which allows and tolerates everybody’s beliefs and feelings.

anyt 14

That being said, according to Brian Flood of Fox News, “The New York Times says airing the national anthem on TV could trigger viewers who hear ‘political overtones.’”

“Trigger?”

“Political overtones?”

anyt 5

Are we getting “political overtones” confused with patriotic overtones?

What is “political” about hearing and/or seeing the national anthem unless you’re anti-American?

anyt 13

“The New York Times ‘poo-pooed’ the long-standing tradition of television stations airing The Star-Spangled Banner because some night owl viewers could be offended by the ‘politically charged’ national anthem.”

Wait…, what?

The New York Times “poo-pooed?”

Well, like I said, they are creating a “hot mess” after all.

Again…, if you’re “offended” by the national anthem and consider it “politically charged,” then you’re probably either a very confused liberal…, someone here illegally in the first place…, or you are an enemy of our country…, and in any case I’m glad you’re offended.

“The piece, written by culture reporter Julia Jacobs, is headlined ‘Local TV Revives a Bygone Tradition: Airing the National Anthem,’ and declares that the song can ‘be a dividing line’ for some Americans.”

anyt 1

“Culture reporter?”  Why, how snooty and pretentious of you!

“The Times [Ms. Jacobs] noted that ‘one of popular culture’s generational divides’ is whether or not you are old enough to remember the days when ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ aired on television stations. The national anthem was historically played late at night, going back to the advent of television, typically amid visuals of patriotic imagery before the station signed off until the next morning.”

Oh really?

THIS is a generational divide of our culture?

I hardly think so, seeing that most of the people under 30 don’t even watch what us older folk would consider TV per se.  They watch things on their TV, but they don’t watch typical TV channel broadcasts, or even satellite or cable for that matter.

‘“Now, the early morning hours are filled with rebroadcasts and infomercials, eliminating any practical reason for a formal sign off,’ the Times [Ms. Jacobs] wrote.”

What kind of imbecile has nothing better to worry about than whether they’re playing the national anthem on TV at 4:00 AM in the morning or not?

That’s really digging deep to promote your anti-American ways!

anyt 2

“Some stations have revived the tradition but the Times wrote that some viewers ‘might hear political overtones’ as a result. Gray Television, CBS and Nexstar Media Group have led the way, with the National Anthem now played on more than 350 stations across America, according to the Times.”

‘“The decision to revive the anthem tradition comes at a time when overt allegiance to The Star-Spangled Banner has become one of the lines that separate blue and red America,’ the Times reporter wrote.”

Why say “blue and red?”  Why not say liberals and conservatives, or democrats and republicans?

Let’s not be afraid to name those who are overtly anti-America and those who are overtly pro-America.

Let’s draw a clear line and let people choose what side they’re on.

“Author, Tim Young asks, ‘Should it shock anyone at this point that the New York Times is trying to get people to be outraged at the airing of the National Anthem?’”

anyt 12

‘“It’s inspiring that local news is returning our National Anthem to an important place in our culture.  It’s astonishing that The Times would see that as a bad thing,’ Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News. ‘But if you pay close attention to the story, the paper admits that the left, including journalists, doesn’t like the national anthem.  That shows exactly who and what they really are.’”

Yes it does, Mr. Gainor…, yes it does.

“The paper admits that television executives haven’t heard many complaints and feedback has been ‘overwhelmingly positive,’ but that tidbit is buried roughly 1,400 words into the story.”

anyt 9

“Political satirist and author Tim Young told Fox News that this story “truly reveals the mindset” of the Gray Lady [“the Gray Lady” is a nickname for The New York Times newspaper].”

‘“Should it shock anyone at this point that the New York Times is trying to get people to be outraged at the airing of the national anthem? Their piece is written as if viewers should be skeptical of every element of the song and accompanying video,’ Young said. ‘They don’t like America and its anthem and they want you to dislike it as well.’”

anyt 11

“In the span of a week, the Washington Post calls a terrorist psychopath a ‘religious scholar’ and the Times is upset about the national anthem being played. These are supposed to be America’s top two news publications, and they seemingly hate America.”

anyt 10

What if I said I find The New York Times and The Washington Post offensive?

Would they maintain their integrity and shut down the publication of their newspapers?

Of course not.

People who find liberal speech or actions offensive are dismissed out of hand and ignored by the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

In this fascist, liberal socialist world, they are promoting, the arbiters of what is deemed offensive are the ones who wield the power.

And “they…,” “the ones…,” would be the anti-Americans…, the liberals…, the democrats.

California sounds like a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there.

On second thought, it doesn’t really sound like a place I’d care to visit anymore either!

Don’t get me wrong, I lived in northern California for close to a year, and I loved it…, but that was over 40 years ago.

Things there sure appear to have changed.

aca 5

Besides the earthquakes, forest fires, oppressive taxes, expensive gas, poop and homeless people laying around everywhere, an out of control drug problem, and over 5 million undocumented immigrants, we now see a steep rise in shoplifting, thefts, and criminal activity across state.

Just to put some of this into perspective, there are 26 states with smaller populations than California’s illegal immigrant population!

And California is nicknamed “the golden state?”

It sounds more like a living hell to me now…, unless you’re an illegal immigrant, a welfare warrior, a drug addict, a criminal, or an elite liberal who can afford to insulate themselves from the mess they’ve helped to create.

Barnini Chakraborty of Fox News reports that, “In 2014, Prop[osition] 47 was passed to reduce certain non-violent felonies to misdemeanors in order to free up resources for cops and prosecutors to go after serious, violent offenders. Data shows that after Prop 47 passed, shoplifting and thefts increased.”

Gee…, who could have predicted that?  Apparently not any of the democrats out there in California.

aca 11

“Fox News spoke with San Francisco and Oakland shop owners about the recent rise in crime.”

“In a lighted garage on one of San Francisco’s busiest streets, a young man in baggy trousers and messy brown hair pulled down his pants. He had been hiding two pairs of stolen jeans with the tags still on them. He handed them to another man waiting nearby, took some money, pulled up his pants and headed back into another store on Market Street — home to the city’s high-end designers and big-chain retail shops.”

“These brazen acts of petty theft and shoplifting are a dangerous and all-too-common consequence of Proposition 47, a referendum passed five years ago that critics say effectively gives shoplifters and addicts the green light to commit crimes as long as the merchandise they steal or the drugs they take are less than $950 in value. The decision to downgrade theft of property valued below the arbitrary figure from felony to misdemeanor, together with selective enforcement that focuses on more ‘serious’ crimes, has resulted in thieves knowing they can brazenly shoplift and merchants knowing the police will not respond to their complaints, say critics.”

“Over in the City by the Bay’s famous Tenderloin district, Cassie, a 21-year-old mother of two and a former heroin junkie, told Fox News that when times were tough, she too has stolen from stores.”

‘“If my babies need diapers or formula, who is going to get that for me? No one. I have to do it,’ she said. ‘They ain’t out here arresting people for (shoplifting) and everyone knows it.’”

“Proposition 47 is seen by critics as one of California’s biggest blunders. Supported by the state Democratic Party and championed by the American Civil Liberties Union, the referendum was passed by a wide margin in 2014. The idea behind it was to reduce certain non-violent felonies to misdemeanors in order to free up resources for cops and prosecutors to focus on violent offenders.”

“Since Proposition 47 was passed, there has been an increase in theft across the state. Cities like San Francisco have seen organized crime rings turn shoplifting into a well-organized racket involving desperate thieves and unscrupulous black-market re-sellers.”

“Among the nation’s 20 largest cities, San Francisco now has the highest rate of property crime, which includes theft, shoplifting and vandalism.”

Wow!  You would have to say that San Francisco is a liberal policy over-achiever!

You should be in line to win some kind of award from your fearless leader, and representative, Nancy Pelosi.

“Del Seymour, founder of the non-profit Code Tenderloin, told Fox News that fencers – often from Mexico and Guatemala – set up shop in the middle of the day and night around the city’s United Nations Plaza area. He said he’s also noticed that the stealers and dealers have gotten bolder by the day. The retail heists taking place, he said, aren’t some small-time operation but instead a sophisticated network of international dealers who cross the border to buy stolen goods.”

“Seymour believes San Francisco is stuck in a cycle and, until it’s able to pull itself out, the problem will continue. Drug addicts, who are often homeless, need money for a fix so they walk into a store, steal merchandise, sell it for half the value and use the money they made to buy more drugs. Seymour added that the mayor and elected city officials have been spending too much time and money trying to coddle addicts and have done nothing to eliminate San Francisco’s drug problem.”

“The problem isn’t just San Francisco-based. Across the state, retailers say they have been hit hard by shoplifters since Prop 47 went into effect.”

“In San Diego County, 7-Eleven franchise owner Jassi Dhillon told NBC 7 that he has to deal with shoplifters at all six of his store locations.

‘“It’s happening every day, hour by hour,’ he said.”

“Dhillon said shoplifting isn’t a priority to law enforcement and said when cops do show up, the shoplifter has left the store or isn’t concerned about the citation they are issued.”

‘“It’s becoming a lifestyle for us now because we can’t do anything much except take the loss,’ he said.”

“Rachel Michelin, president of the California Retailers Association, said shoplifting is not only hurting retailers but is also ‘becoming a public safety issue for consumers.’”

“She said black-market dealers frequently cross state lines because they know California will go easy on them if caught.”

‘“They know what they’re doing. They will bring in calculators and get all the way up to the $950 limit,’ Michelin told Fox News, adding that ‘one person will go into a store, fill up their backpack, come out, dump it out and go right back in and do it all over again.’”

“Michelin said she’s seen footage from member retailers that she described as ‘completely insane.’”

‘“They will go into a grocery store, steal alcohol and walk out the front door with it. They know no one is going to prosecute them.’ — Rachel Michelin, president of California Retailers Association.”

‘“They will go into a grocery store, steal alcohol and walk out the front door with it,’ she said. ‘They know no one is going to prosecute them. The district attorneys aren’t.’”

“She added that there are even more sinister acts afoot. Many out-of-state crime rings use children to do their dirty work because they know they’re low on the totem pole of prosecutions.”

‘“There are folks that are using and exploiting children,’ she said. ‘But I also think that teenagers know that there are no consequences anymore. It’s part of a game. If you get caught, all you have to do is get out of the store.’”

‘“Law enforcement [officials] are trying to protect the streets and then they might do a sting and arrest a bunch of people but then the district attorney will drop it or downgrade the charges,’ she said.”

“It’s a frustrating dynamic for sure, but until the state finds a fix, retailers have been reaching into their own pockets to hire private security guards but even then there are no guarantees that the stealing will stop. In fact, all that private guards can do is observe and report thefts.”

“Frustrated business owners say they feel their needs are being ignored by elected officials.”

“Fox News asked Democratic Mayor London Breed’s office six separate times for an interview or to comment on this story. Her office did not respond to a single request about the growing crisis. Fox News also reached out to the district attorney’s office multiple times but did not get a response.”

Ha!  No kidding!

How dare anyone try and hold these democrats accountable for their actions?!

They don’t feel obligated to explain themselves to me, you, or anyone else.

We are all below their level of social understanding and “enlightedness.”

‘“Big and small businesses are hit hard financially by these thefts, which often endanger employees and discourage law-abiding customers. SFPD is collaborating closely with local businesses and our partner agencies to deter and investigate these crimes to make our city even safer and enable businesses to prosper,’ San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said in the press release forwarded to Fox News.”

Okay, Chief.  You just keep on collaborating there while you keep on kissing the backsides of all of the “all talk and no do (at least no doing of anything positive or effective) politicians there.

As with most liberal policies, law abiding, productive citizens, receive little or no consideration.

They are just left to pay the bills and contend with the fallout of all of these great liberal ideas!

Well, well, well.  The “liberal chickens” are certainly coming home to roost, regarding the democrats’ whistleblower.  

According to Victor Morton of The Washington Times, “The attorney representing the Ukraine whistleblower tweeted about starting a “coup” against President Trump that would end with his impeachment almost as soon as he took the oath of office.”

Hmmm, you don’t say?

Only 10 days after President Trump’s inauguration ceremony, “Mark S. Zaid wrote on his certified Twitter account on Jan. 30, 2017, Mr. Trump’s 11th day in power, “#coup has started. First of many steps. #rebellion. #impeachment will follow ultimately. #lawyers https://t.co/FiNBQo6v0S — Mark S. Zaid (@MarkSZaidEsq) January 31, 2017’”

azaid 16

I notice Zaid uses “Esq” in his twitter “handle,” or user name.  The usage of “Esq” seems pretty haughty.  “Esq.” is an abbreviation for esquire, which is a title used by attorneys in the United States. The term esquire has a different meaning in English Law.  It is a title used to signify dignity, which ranks above gentleman and directly below knight.            It is a title of respect accorded to men of higher social rank.

I only mention this because this is a common liberal trait…, thinking they are better than or above the rest of us…, of a “higher social rank.”

It just helps understand where Mr. Zaid Esq. is coming from.

“Mr. Zaid’s tweet was in response to the firing of Sally Yates as acting attorney general for refusing to follow Mr. Trump’s orders on immigration policy.”

It was at this point that the treasonous members of the deep state realized they weren’t running the show, and they didn’t like it!

“Mr. [President] Trump referred to the story at a campaign rally in Louisiana on Wednesday night, calling the attorney a ‘sleaze ball.’”

Nicely put, Mr. President!

‘“It’s all a hoax, it’s a scam,’ the president said.”

“According to a report on Fox News, Mr. Zaid also repeatedly crowed about how ‘we’ and the media will force Mr. Trump from office.”

‘“I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president,’ he wrote in one tweet and ‘we will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters’ in another.”

“Both tweets were posted in July 2017, almost two years before Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was even in office to speak with Mr. Trump on the phone.”

“The Trump reelection campaign said the tweets prove that Democrats’ complaints about impeachable offenses have always been about bad-faith searches for a pretext.”

They also add additional proof that there actually was, and is, a treasonous deep state community that needs to be dealt with…, with extreme prejudice.

“Added Donald Trump Jr.: ‘Of course he did. Everyone knows the coup started on November 9, 2016. Quit your fake sanctimony! Everybody who’s been watching this [b.s.] for three years sees what a farce it has been all along.’”

Gregg Re of Fox News reported, “Trump hits whistleblower attorney’s 2017 plan for a ‘coup’ against his administration.”

“President Trump, at a [Keep America Great] campaign rally in Louisiana Wednesday night, unloaded on whistleblower attorney Mark Zaid, after a Fox News article from earlier in the day revealed that Zaid had tweeted about the beginning of a ‘coup’ against the president back in 2017.”

“The president extensively quoted from the article, which reported that Zaid has long called for Trump’s impeachment — even promising two years ago, ‘We will get rid of him.’”

“Zaid now represents the intelligence community whistleblower who is at the center of Democrats’ impeachment inquiry against the president. The whistleblower has alleged that, earlier this year, Trump improperly threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine for political reasons.”

‘“Democrats must be accountable for their hoaxes and their crimes,’ Trump said, holding a printout of the Fox News piece.”

‘“I don’t know if you saw, I’m just coming off the plane, and they hand me — look at this character. They just hand me this story, “’Coup has started,” whistleblower attorney said in 2017.’”

azaid 1

“Trump added: ‘That was a long time ago.  It’s all a hoax.  They say, January 2017 — a “coup has started,” and the “impeachment will follow ultimately.”  It’s all a hoax. It’s a scam. And, you know who helps them? These people back here — the media.’”

“And, amid a slew of impeachment-related posts, Zaid assured his Twitter followers that ‘as one falls, two more will take their place,’ apparently referring to Trump administration employees defying the White House.”

‘“Can you believe this?” Trump asked. ‘Just came out. It’s a disgrace. These people are bad people. They rip the guts out of our country.’”

“Trump also hammered The Washington Post, saying, ‘19 minutes after I took the oath of office, the horrible, disgusting Washington Post — which is a terrible paper — an article comes out, ‘The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.’”

‘“Is there any place you would rather be than a Trump rally, on a beautiful evening in Louisiana?’ Trump asked, as the crowd chanted, ‘lock her up,’ and cheered.”

My answer is ‘no.”  I know I enjoy your rallies, Mr. President, and I wish I could have been there.

“Over a thousand people were gathered outside the Monroe Civic Center early Wednesday morning, and over 40,000 people obtained tickets for the event!”

Now…, regarding our pathetic, “hearsay” whistleblower…, Dr. Sebastian Gorka tweeted that the alleged “whistleblower” is believed to be, one, Eric Ciaramella.

azaid 9

Parts of Mr. Ciaramella’s “illustrious resume” include:

Protégé of former CIA Director, John “the treasonous turd” Brennan.  Brennan was also the one who sent him to work in The White House during Obama’s reign.

Ciaramella also worked for Susan “the puppet” Rice.

He travelled with and advised then Vice President “sleepy, creepy” Joe Biden on The Ukraine.

Well…, you get the picture.

azaid 10

“Ciaramella.”  That sounds like some kind of sickness or disease, like salmonella!

Maybe we should adopt that name as the disease of the liberal mind?!

azaid 15

Is it just me, or do these tweezer necked, sissy boy, liberal turds all look the same?

azaid 11

The question is was there a whistleblower looking for an attorney or was there a congressman (“Shifty” Adam Schiff) and an attorney looking for a willing accomplice and a whistleblower?

I would tend to believe it was the latter.

azaid 4

azaid 8

In either case…, it appears the democrats are becoming less and less interested in allowing their whistleblower to testify or be cross examined.  I wonder why that is?

WINNING!

ABC News and the Jeffrey Epstein case…, just another example of “the fake news media” tailoring what “news” they want you to hear…, or to not hear! 

In this recent case, we have learned that ABC News quashed a story about Jeffrey “Mr. Pedophile” Epstein and his perverted partners in crime, Bill “Slick Willie” Clinton and “Britain’s finest,” Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.

aep 4

Appearing in supporting roles were George Stephanopoulos (former White House Communications Director and Senior advisor to the president under Bill Clinton, and now chief anchor and political correspondent on ABC) and Alan Dershowitz (a prominent lawyer who was on the defense teams for O.J. Simpson, Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein).

aep 8

aep 9

You obviously lean towards those with quite a high “sleaze factor” when selecting your clients, don’t you, Mr. Dershowitz?!

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “ABC News anchor Amy Robach was caught on a hot mic claiming ‘network honchos’ killed a story that would have exposed claims that now-deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein forced an alleged victim to have sex with Prince Andrew.”

aep 6

“Network honchos,” huh?

More like “network puppets/tools.”

Don’t these “people” and their enablers just make you sick?

I know they make me sick.

On a side note…, whatever happened to that #METOO movement?

I guess women’s rights only go so far.

Anyway…, “Robach filmed an interview with Prince Andrew accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre in 2015 that never aired, and she vented about ABC killing the story during a ‘moment of frustration’ that was published Tuesday by Project Veritas.”

aep 7

Note: For more information on “Project Veritas,” please refer to my blog from October 31, 2019, “CNN exposed as propaganda arm for the democrats!”

“ABC News president James Goldston recently dined with members of the royal family, including Prince Charles, according to Page Six. In the leaked footage, Robach complained that ABC would not air her sit down with Giuffre – who has claimed Epstein paid her to have sex with Prince Andrew, although the prince denies the allegations.”

‘“The Palace [Buckingham Palace] found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways,’ said ABC News anchor Amy Robach.”

“Giuffre told NPR in August that she ‘viewed the ABC interview as a potential game-changer’ and said the network never explained why it didn’t air.  ABC News has said it didn’t meet its standards.”

“Didn’t meet its standards?!”

Oh…, now all of a sudden they have “standards?!”

Where were these journalistic “standards” when they reported on wild and unsubstantiated Russian collusion nonsense on a nightly basis?

Where were these journalistic “standards” when they reported on wild unsubstantiated claims regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh?

The list could go on.

The point is, in the world of the fake news media, “journalistic standards” means the proper application of the liberal propaganda of the day.

aep 10

And what about the rest of the fake news media and this story?

“Fox News found no coverage on CNN, MSNBC, CBS News, or NBC News from noon through midnight ET on Tuesday while the story was lighting up social media. During that same time frame, Fox News covered the scandal on five different programs, including its entire primetime lineup.”

‘“That there has been so little coverage about ABC avoiding the Epstein story demonstrates again that mainstream media too often make news judgment based on sociocultural or political implications rather than journalistic values,’” DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News.”

adebate 9

Like I said…, “Just another example of ‘the fake news media’ tailoring what ‘news’ they want you to hear…, or to not hear!

“During the NBC interview, Giuffre repeated accusations she has made in court papers that when she was 17 in 2001 she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew. A photo released by a New York appeals court in August showed Andrew with his arm around Giuffre’s bare waist.”

aep 3

“Giuffre said it was taken in the apartment of Epstein’s longtime girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, in 2001.”

Please note that if Ghislaine Maxwell isn’t already dead, she will be experiencing an accidental suicide very soon.

Just sayin’.

“Ghislaine woke me up in the morning and said, ‘You’re going to meet a prince today.’ I didn’t know at that point I was going to be trafficked to that prince,’ Giuffre told NBC News three years after her interview with ABC that never aired.”

‘“Ghislaine said [Prince Andrew’s] coming back to the house and I want you do to for him what you do for Epstein,’ Giuffre said in the interview. ‘I couldn’t believe it.’”

“Giuffre said she and Andrew had sex two more times. The encounters happened in Epstein’s New York apartment and at his Virgin Islands estate, she alleges.”

“A Buckingham Palace spokesperson has emphatically denied Giuffre’s allegations against Andrew.”

Of course they did.

Good show!  Bloody good show!

“Democrats have brainwashed Black Americans!” – Kanye West (Musician/Rapper)

You got that right, Kanye.

“Poor people have been voting democrat for 50 years…, and they’re still poor.” – Charles Barkley (Retired NBA basketball player and now basketball TV analyst)

You got that right, Charles.

Sam Dorman of Fox News reports that, “Kanye West calls out liberals for ‘bullying’ Trump supporters [and] the media’s liberal agenda.”

I applaud Kanye West for not being afraid to state the obvious and brandish the truth.

akanye 5

Are Trump supporters not being bullied in many cases?

Does the mainstream media not have a liberal agenda?

Well there you go.

“Rapper Kanye West [also] blasted Democrats on Friday, claiming the party was effectively forcing black Americans to abort their children.”

‘“Democrats had us voting for Democrats with food stamps for years, bro. … Guns in the 80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children,’ he said during an interview published on Friday.”

“In the same interview, with radio host Big Boy, West said black Americans are ‘brainwashed.’ ‘We’re brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, man. This is a free man talking,’ he said.”

Democrats have obviously taken Black Americans for granted for a very long time.

The unwavering 90%+ support of the democrats by Black Americans is definitely unwarranted.

Again…, like Charles Barkley said, “Poor people have been voting democrat for 50 years…, and they’re still poor.”

akanye 3

akanye 1

But the hold the democrats have had on Blacks is starting to show a few cracks here and there.

akanye 6

During the 2016 presidential election, President Trump asked Black Americans, “What do you have to lose by taking a chance on me?”

By my estimation, the only thing they have to lose is their front row seats for when their democrat masters throw their crumbs out to all of the black sheep living on their plantation!

akanye 10

“His comments echoed those of pro-life activists like Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.  In June, King blasted Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., for suggesting that abortion was a civil rights issue.”

akanye 4

akanye 9

‘“I need for her to understand that abortion is a civil wrong,’ King told ‘Fox & Friends.’ ‘And of course, if you’re pro-life, you can’t be racist because you’re defending life for the most defenseless population on the planet — the little babies in the womb,’ King said at the time.”

“The pro-life movement has long pointed out the disparity between black and white abortion rates in the U.S.”

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in 2018 that for 2015, ‘abortion rates and ratios remained 1.5 and 1.3 times higher for Hispanic compared with non-Hispanic white women and 3.6 and 3.5 times higher for non-Hispanic black compared with non-Hispanic white women.”

“At one point during the interview, West also claimed that it was racist for people to tell him he couldn’t support Trump. ‘The most racist thing a person can tell me is that I’m supposed to choose something based on my race,’ he said.”

Kanye’s absolutely right here.  It’s racist and un-American.

Why are Whites, Hispanics and Asians “allowed” to think for themselves, while Blacks are somehow expected to conform to some predetermined way of thinking or be shunned and labeled Uncle Toms and the like?

“West drew some criticism last year after he openly embraced [President] Trump and was seen sport[ing] a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat.”

akanye 2

Like Kanye said, “Come on, man. This is a free man talking.”

America is the land of the free, and we’re still allowed to believe what we want, think what we want and say what we want, even though the democrats are making their best effort to change all of that.

The thought police are out there and ready to go on active duty if, God forbid, we put the democrats in a position to let them loose.

Who knew New York City was such a generous and sharing place…, as they secretly export their homeless to Hawaii and many other states?!

Wait…, what?

anyc 9

What?

I thought New York City was a “sanctuary city…,” a “caring” city?

I guess New York City is only a “sanctuary city” for people who are in the country illegally…, not for your old run of the mill, actual American citizen.

anyc 1

Only democrats could come up with this lame kind of plan…, and then expect to keep it secret somehow.

anyc 10

In case you didn’t notice, the word “secret” is starting to become synonymous with the democrats.

They’ve got this “secret” plan…, and they’re conducting these “secret” hearings…, and they have “secret” answers to “secret” questions about these “secret’ individuals.

“Secret” “impeachment hearings and interviews with “secret” questions and “secret” answers (unless they are potentially damaging to President Trump, in which case they are leaked to the “liberal propaganda media”), and “secret” accusers and whistleblowers.

And, of course, the democrats are assisted with this “propaganda by omission” by their friends the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” who look the other away regarding their fascist behavior.

Thankfully, not all news media is created in the image of The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS or NBC.

Sara Dorn of The New York Post reports that, “NYC homeless initiative sends people across the US — without telling receiving cities.  Families who once lived in NYC shelters were sent to 32 states and Puerto Rico.  New York City [is] generously sharing its homeless crisis with every corner of America.”

“From the tropical shores of Honolulu and Puerto Rico, to the badlands of Utah and backwaters of Louisiana, the Big Apple has sent local homeless families to 373 cities across the country with a full year of rent in their pockets as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s ‘Special One-Time Assistance Program [SOTA].’ Usually, the receiving city knows nothing about it.”

“The Big Apple has sent local homeless families to 373 cities across the country!”

“373 cities!”

Well, isn’t that special?!

That’s a lot of nerve, NYC…, secretly shipping your “problems” out of town to other unsuspecting cities.

anyc 3

Mayor Bill de Bozio and the rest of the “holier than thou” New York liberals have apparently felt the need to “punt” their problems to other states they consider “low rent…,” and then de Bozio has the nerve to complain about illegal immigrants, who he supposedly supports, being shipped to NYC from our southern border.

I guess he supports the concept…, as long as the illegals go to someone else’s city.

anyc 8

“[New York] City taxpayers have spent $89 million on rent alone since the program’s August 2017 inception to export 5,074 homeless families — 12,482 individuals — to places as close as Newark and as far as the South Pacific, according to Department of Homeless Services (DHS…, not to be confused with The Department of Homeland Security) data obtained by The Post.  Families who once lived in city shelters decamped [departed suddenly or secretly] to 32 states and Puerto Rico.”

Ha!  What liberal genius took the time to come up with the word “decamped?”

These people are just soooo deceiving and soooo disingenuous.

anyc 6

This has been going on for over two years, and it’s just coming out now.

Like I said before, “propaganda by omission.”  “If we don’t report about it, it isn’t happening.”

“The city also paid travel expenses, through a separate taxpayer-funded program called Project Reconnect, but would not divulge how much it spent.”

If it’s taxpayer funded isn’t it a public record?  Secret, secret, secret.

Just sayin’.

“DHS defends the stratospheric costs, saying it actually saves the city on shelter funding — which amounts to about $41,000 annually per family, as compared to the average yearly rent of $17,563 to house families elsewhere.”

anyc 2

“But critics say the ‘stop-gap solution’ has been fraught with problems, and ultimately has failed to help curb the city’s homelessness.”

You don’t say?!

You mean to say we have a democrat program here that doesn’t work?

Join the list of sad democrat programs that don’t work, and that haven’t worked, SOTA!

anyc 7

“Not only are officials in towns where the city’s homeless land up in arms, but hundreds of the homeless families are returning to the five boroughs — and some are even suing NYC over being abandoned in barely livable conditions. Multiple outside agencies and organizations have opened investigations into SOTA.”

“Homeless individuals and families are eligible for SOTA if they can prove they have been in a New York City shelter for at least 90 days and that their household income is no more than twice what it owes in rent. DHS would not expand on eligibility rules.”

Wait.

So let me get this straight.

You can qualify for this program if your “household income is no more than twice what it owes in rent?”

Wouldn’t that be like many people and many families across America?

I mean, most people are not rich or anywhere close to it.

Maybe New York is doing these people a favor by shipping them out of la la land and out into the real world?

But that’s beside the point.

“Some pols [politicians] in towns taking in NYC refugees were shocked by the news.”

‘“So in other words, if someone is in a shelter, y’all will give them money to go somewhere else if they have been there for 90 days? And some of those people have been sent to Metairie [part of the New Orleans metropolitan area]?’ said Michael Yenni, president of Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, when The Post told him the community is among the SOTA destinations.”

‘“I’m not in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s shoes.  I don’t sit behind his desk, and I never will, but it’s certainly interesting. You have shocked me down here in beautiful southeast Louisiana.’”

“The mayor of Willacoochee, Georgia, was similarly stunned. ‘I’m not familiar with none of that,’ Samuel Newson said.”

“The mayor of Harrisville, Utah — who was so baffled to receive a call from The Post that she questioned if the reporter had the wrong number — asked if SOTA recipients are connected to social services in the towns where they move.”

‘“Are they just cutting them loose and saying, “Here you go?” Or are they making sure they don’t find themselves in the same situation a year later?’ Michelle Tait asked.”

“Pols [politicians] in New Jersey, where 2,226 SOTA families have moved, say the answer to Tait’s latter question is ‘No.’”

“Mayor Tony Vauss of Irvington [New Jersey], the destination for 278 SOTA families, said he is ‘highly disturbed by the lack of communication from New York City and the lack of oversight of this program by the city.  ‘SOTA recipients are the population of citizens who require ongoing social services and resources … Therefore, once SOTA ceases funding, program recipients end up using our state and local resources to maintain themselves.’”

“DHS spokesman Isaac McGinn said the city ‘remains committed to using every tool at our disposal to help these families and individuals find stability in the ways that work for them.  Any American, including any New Yorker experiencing homelessness, has the right to seek housing where they can afford it and employment where they can find it.’”

Again…, these people are just soooo manipulative, so deceptive, and soooo disingenuous.

The New York Times chose to begrudgingly report about this program with this liberally spun headline: “City Aids Homeless With One-Way Tickets Home.”

Ha!

Yes…, and NYC baked each one of them an apple pie as a going away present before they unceremoniously gave them their one-way ticket out of town.

I’m sure Mayor de Bozio will end up winning some kind of liberal reward for this program now that they were forced to acknowledge it.

anyc 5

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all just ship our problems somewhere else for someone else to deal with?

Apparently that’s only an option for the liberal elites who know so much better than the rest of us uneducated “deplorables.”
