Excuse me, but WHAT’S “unfair” about the election?!

And WHO’S being “unfair” about the election?!

According to Joshua Q. Nelson of Fox News, “Jonathan Turley says Trump’s attacks on judges over election rulings are ‘unfair.’”

‘“There is a disconnect between the evidence and the relief being sought,’ Turley says”

Turley also adds that, “The odds are against Trump in flipping states.”

No kidding?

Well thank you very much, Captain Obvious!

Yes…, the odds are against The President…, especially when the fake news, liberal propaganda, mainstream media refuses to address any type election malfeasance, and the DOJ and the FBI are completely out to lunch as well.  

Please tell us, Mr. Turley, exactly when it was that the odds weren’t against President Trump regarding anything?! 

“George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley said on Monday that President Trump’s’ ‘attacks’ on judges over their decisions on the 2020 election dispute are ‘unfair.’”

Please, Mr. Turley, let’s not deflect the issue from a presidential election being stolen to your perceived unfairness of judicial treatment.

After all, haven’t we become a country that favors “victims?”

And aren’t President Trump and all of the legal voters in this last election the “victims” here?

‘“There is a disconnect between the evidence and the relief being sought,’ Turley told ‘Fox & Friends.’”

The only “disconnect” here is the “disconnect” between you and your democrat friends and the hard working, law abiding, American people.

“Turley said that although the Trump legal team provided evidence of ‘irregularities, unlawful orders, and thousands of votes that were not counted,’ none of it has ‘amounted to the type of numbers that would change the outcome of a given state.’”

Again, well, thank you very much, Professor Turley, for your astute determination of the cases here.

And, please, let’s not pretend that Professor Turley is some kind of unbiased purveyor of legal wisdom.

The only fair and balanced George Washington University Law Professor is an ex-George Washington University Law Professor.

Believe that.

What President Trump’s legal team has provided is a reason for some of these states in question to hit the pause button and at least have some of their voting systems and voting processes looked at.

I mean, it’s pretty hard for President’s Trump’s legal team to gather any hard evidence, besides the hundreds of affidavits documenting vote processing shenanigans, of course, if they are not allowed access to the voting machines, the actual ballots, and election workers.

‘“More importantly, these judges have balked at the idea of essentially negating millions of votes as a form of relief. And, in Pennsylvania, the courts said, look, these voters do appear to have been denied their right to vote; I’d rather count their votes than not count millions of others, and, that is the disconnect he’s facing,’ Turley said”

All I have to say to these judges is, either the votes were cast legally or they weren’t.

“Negating” fraudulent votes isn’t a bad thing, no matter how many of them there are.    

And who exactly was denied their “right to vote?”

Perhaps people who died prior to the Civil War. 

I mean, even the democrats had to draw the line somewhere!  

And you’d rather count these potentially illegal votes, which, in effect, cancels out my vote and thousands of others’ legal votes?

What about our rights, Mr. Turley?  

“President Trump blasted judges’ rejections of his legal challenges to 2020 election results and said he couldn’t be certain any of his cases would make it to the Supreme Court in his first interview since Election Day on Sunday.”

‘“We’re not allowed to put in our proof. They say you don’t have standing,’ Trump told ‘Sunday Morning Futures.’ ‘I would like to file one nice big beautiful lawsuit, talking about this and many other things, with tremendous proof. We have affidavits, we have hundreds and hundreds of affidavits.’”

You see, Mr. President, conservatives are held to a completely different standard, compared to the political establishment and the neo-fascist “deep state.”   

Perhaps if you could present a single anonymous whistleblower, you may have a better chance!

‘“You mean as president of the United States, I don’t have standing? What kind of a court system is this?’ Trump continued.”

A kangaroo Court, Mr. President!

A Kangaroo Court.

“Most recently, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court dismissed a case Saturday night brought by Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa., and a handful of other Republican voters who sought to overturn last year’s law creating no-excuse mail-in voting as well as halt further action in certifying Pennsylvania’s votes.”

“Judge Ken Starr said The President’s path to victory is fading despite ‘numerous’ examples of anecdotal evidence.”

“Turley again stated that Trump’s ‘attacks against the judges’ are “unfair.”

‘“They’re being attacked–the judiciary is being attacked by both Democratic and Republican leaders these days, but, they’re doing their job. They’re trying to rule according to the evidence.’”

Have you heard of any “Democratic leaders” attacking any judges, anywhere?

I sure haven’t.   

These judges should be trying to rule according to the actual election laws that are in place, not according to election “rules” adopted by partisan election officials and other activist judges.

“Cheaters, cheaters, pumpkin eaters!”

I remember this rhyme from when I was a kid.

Yes, it is childish, but, whatever, I’m rolling with it!  

During Joe Biden’s October 24th appearance on the progressive podcast “Pod Save America,” Biden said, “We’re in a situation where we have put together, and you guys did it for our administration, President Obama’s administration before this, we have put together I think the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”

In this instance, I believe you Sleepy Joe!

It’s amazing the information you can get out of Joe Biden if you just let him talk without the aid of a teleprompter. 

So, now that we have that established…, according to the Brennan Center for Justice, “It is important to protect the integrity of our elections. But we must be careful not to undermine free and fair access to the ballot in the name of preventing phantom voter fraud.”

“Politicians at all levels of government have repeatedly, and falsely, claimed the 2016 and 2018 elections were marred by millions of people voting illegally. However, extensive research reveals that fraud is very rare, voter impersonation is virtually nonexistent, and many instances of alleged fraud are, in fact, mistakes by voters or administrators. The same is true for mail ballots, which are secure and essential to holding a safe election amid the coronavirus pandemic.”

“The Brennan Center’s seminal report, ‘The Truth About Voter Fraud,’ conclusively demonstrated that most allegations of fraud turn out to be baseless and that most of the few remaining allegations reveal irregularities and other forms of election misconduct.”

Of course they are.  

Have you read the MrEricksonRule’s Center for Justice report that brings to light massive democrat election fraud?

It carries about as much weight as this piece of Brennan Center propaganda.

Supposedly, The Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University Law School is a bipartisan law and public policy institute seen as liberal or progressive in its policy positions and views. The organization is named after Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan.

The Brennan Center’s own website says, “The Brennan Center is equal parts think tank, public interest law firm and advocacy organization. The Brennan Center serves as a generator of legal theory and as an expert on democracy reform, equipping and empowering journalists, attorneys, civic engagement organizations, and other national partners to achieve immediate wins and make long-term strides toward an inclusive and just democracy.”

Their form of “an inclusive and just democracy” does not include people who don’t think like they do, and “just democracy” is whatever they say it is…, and you better not question them.  

What a couple of good little Nazis!

If you visit the Brennan Center’s website, it will become apparent quite quickly that they oppose President Trump and are proactive in their attacks on him and his administration.   

It would not surprise me at all if these people were a driving force behind many of the issues we find ourselves having with this election.

It’s amazing how many of these “centers” exist in our country, whose soul intention is destroying our country as we know it.     

I’ve heard many “talking heads” representing the democrats, and many hosts and contributors to many shows on the fake news and liberal propaganda media say:

“There may be some instances of voter fraud, but not enough to matter.”

“There may be some cases voter fraud, but not enough to make a difference in the outcome.”

“The rate of voter fraud is within acceptable ranges.”

There is a huge difference between “voter fraud” on a case by case instance, and large scale “ballot fraud” or large scale “ballot data dumps,” “intentional voting machine software manipulation,” and overall “election fraud.”

 The 2020 election cannot be compared to prior elections. 

In the 2020 election, democrats were prepared to pull out all the stops if needed, and do whatever it took to defeat President Trump.

That is precisely why counts were halted in battleground states on election night, after it was determined President Trump was on track to win these states.

This gave the democrats time to produce enough votes, electronically, or physically, to overtake President Trump’s vote totals, when the counting recommenced.  

It was quite obvious to me, and I will go to my grave believing this was the case.

Whether or not The President’s legal team is able to actually gain access to the system and the physical ballots, in order to be able to document this cheating and bring it to light is another story.

If they really believe the election was fair and square, and they are interested in making sure our elections are fair and square, Joe Biden, his campaign, and the democrats should welcome validation of this election’s integrity, not ignore it, fight it, or run from it.

Nobody wants their vote to be disqualified by an opposing illegitimate vote.

Put your hand up if you’re willing to sacrifice your vote to a cheater.

Hmmm…, I’m not seeing any hands out there.

And it doesn’t make any difference if the cheating is on a small scale or a large scale.

Cheating is cheating.

It’s the year 2020 ladies and gentlemen.  We are more than capable of instituting an election system which would safeguard us from virtually all of the fraud issues, if that’s what our politicians (and I’m referring mainly to the democrats) wanted.

Biden and the democrats are not going to be able effectively govern the country if tens of millions of Americans believe Biden is an illegitimate president who got into office by way of a rigged and stolen election.     

Hopefully, we won’t be forced to deal with that situation.

Thank you, MrEricksonRules.  

What’s the REAL story of this election?

Let’s start out by saying what the REAL story of this election isn’t.

The REAL story of this election isn’t what the latest counts are, or who’s winning by how much, or who has declared who the winner.  

The REAL story of this election is how the democrats are succeeding in stealing the election!

All of these people must really think the supporters of The President are stupid.

But we’re not.

We understand completely what’s going on here.

What’s going on is a few battleground states, which are controlled by democrats, have agreed to coopt this election.

Isn’t it a coincidence that all of these states which are allowed to count, day after day, after election day, keep coming up with more Biden votes?

We get it.

As long as you can keep counting you can keep manufacturing the votes you need to defeat The President.

It’s sooo obvious and sooo sickening.

Congratulations democrats. You have succeeded in making a mockery of our election process.

You are succeeding in stealing this election.

You are succeeding in taking down our democracy.

And all of your co-conspirators are helping you get away with it.

But you only think you’re getting away with it.

You’re not really.

All of the patriots across this great nation see you all clearly for what you are…, cheaters, liars, and anti-American scum.

I know one thing. 

You are not prepared to deal with the ramifications of your traitorous actions.

You couldn’t take President Trump down with your treasonous spying and Russian collusion investigation.

You couldn’t take President Trump down with your attempt at impeaching him for nothing.

And you couldn’t even take The President down with your virus and trying to ruin our economy and our way of life.   

So, you had to resort to cheating and stealing the election, whatever the cost.    

Again, congratulations democrats.

You have no idea what you have called down upon yourselves.

But you will.   

Stay tuned.

Thank you, MrEricksonRules.

Excuse me…, say what?!

What did I just hear you say?

According to Donna Brazile of Fox News, “President Trump’s premature declaration of victory against Joe Biden and false claims of widespread voter fraud by Democrats constitute a dangerous assault on a fundamental principle upon which our nation was founded: the right of the American people to elect our leaders.”

“The truth is that the President’s baseless threats and lawsuits to stop the counting of mail-in votes are desperate attempts to subvert the values shared by Americans throughout our history. His actions are, to put it bluntly, un-American.”

Frankly, I am amazed you have the nerve to lecture anyone about “un-American actions,” and “desperate attempts to subvert the values shared by Americans throughout our history,” Ms. Bazile.

It was only about four years ago that you conspired with the liberal propaganda, fake news media, to get the debate questions to your candidate, Hillary Clinton, prior to the debate.

You, Donna Brazile, are a documented cheater.

You, Donna Brazile, are guilty of everything you’re accusing President Trump of doing.

You, Donna Brazile, are just one more “useful idiot,” intent on doing your part in an effort to destroy our country.      

“Long after our nation’s founding, the right to vote was denied to millions of Americans. Black people had no rights as slaves and were denied voting rights in many parts of the country for another 100 years after Emancipation. Women were denied the vote until 1920. And other groups, including Native Americans, were excluded from voting for many years as well.”

Thank you for the history lesson, of which everyone is already aware, Ms. Brazile.

You forgot to mention, however, that those inequities were cured by our great country for over 100 years now.  

So, what’s your point?

“Unfortunately. and disgracefully, Republicans in many parts of the country want to turn back the clock and are continuing to engage in voter suppression today — with President Trump taking the lead as the suppressor in chief in a frantic effort to stop mail-in votes in several states from being counted. Why? Because many Democrats voted by mail.”

There you go, spreading disinformation again, Donna!

President Trump does not want to suppress votes.

President Trump just wants to make sure only LEGAL votes are counted. 

Is it too much to ask that all of these mail-in votes be verified?

It’s the same old democrat trick of trying to mislead people regarding President Trump’s beliefs and intentions.

Like when the democrats state that President Trump is against immigration.

This is a disingenuous statement, and the democrats know it.  

President Trump is against ILLEGAL immigration. 

He is all for LEGAL immigration.

That is why you won’t hear Lyin’ Joe Biden, “Cackling” Kamala Harris, or any of the other lying liberals, preface their comments about votes needing to be LEGAL votes.  They only say they want all of the votes counted, regardless of whether the vote is a legal vote or not. 

“Right now, a giant question mark hangs over our nation’s future. Will Trump be inaugurated for a second term on Jan. 20 or will former Vice President Biden become president on that day? The only honest answer is that right now we just don’t know.”

This may be the only honest and truthful comment we hear come out of her cheating mouth.  

“But here is a critically important point: There is nothing underhanded, corrupt or fraudulent about the delay in counting votes — no matter how many times Trump falsely says there is.”

This “critically important point” is only you’re cheating attempt at disinformation, Donna.

The truth is, you have no way of knowing, at this point, “There is nothing underhanded, corrupt or fraudulent about the delay in counting votes.”

In fact, you actually do know that the opposite is true.  

“In a year when we’ve seen record mail-in voting by millions of Americans legitimately fearful of gathering in large crowds because of the coronavirus pandemic, the counting of votes is taking longer than usual. That’s no surprise.”

I thought you were crying about voter suppression, Ms. Brazile? 

But now you say there was “record mail-in voting by millions of Americans.

Which is it?

The answer is, of course, whichever serves your desired narrative at any given moment.

“As Democratic presidential nominee Vice President Al Gore’s campaign manager in 2000, I have unique experience with vote counts and recounts. In the presidential election that year George W. Bush was not declared the winner until the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Dec. 12 that a recount of votes in Florida had to stop.”

Again, thank you for the history lesson, of which everyone is already aware, Ms. Brazile.

“Back in 2000 as today, I wanted the Democratic presidential candidate to win. But even more, I have always wanted democracy to win. And I don’t want any American — regardless of political party — to have his or her vote discounted if that vote was cast by the legal deadline and postmarked by Election Day.”

I’m sorry, but that’s a lie Ms. Brazile. 

You do not want “democracy to win.”

If you wanted “democracy to win,” you would not be supporting the subversion of the entire election process.

Once our election process has been compromised, democracy not only doesn’t win, our democracy collapses.

“Heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali famously said: “Don’t count the days; make the days count.”  In the boxing ring, Ali was patient, diligent, and absolutely thorough in getting the job done and winning the fight. In these tumultuous days following Election Day this week, all of us in the political ring would be wise to apply these lessons from the Greatest of All Time.”

I’m not sure how Ali’s quote applies to this election, but, whatever.

“Let’s be patient, diligent, and absolutely thorough in making sure we count every vote, so that every one of our votes counts. The greatest voter turnout in American history demands nothing less.”

LEGAL votes! 

LEGAL votes!

You mean LEGAL votes, right, Donna?!

“Around the country, Democratic, Republican and unaffiliated state election officials and volunteer workers are making sure that mail-in ballots are being counted. This, my fellow Americans, is a win for our democracy. It’s a win for everyone who voted.”

Except all of those people who followed the rules and voted legally.

Many of those people’s votes are being cancelled by an illegal vote.

“To paraphrase the words of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. — who devoted his life to fighting the suppression of voting rights — our votes in this election are, in a sense, cashing a check.”

And this check has insufficient funds!

“Dr. King said: ‘When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir …. And we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So, we have come to cash this check — a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.’”

So, you think stealing an election is somehow “justice,” Ms. Brazile?

“You all know who I hope will win this presidential election and you know why. But when the dust settles on the election of 2020, I will be proud that Americans stood up and spoke out.”

You don’t really mean that either, Donna. 

You definitely won’t “be proud that Americans stood up and spoke out,” when it is the Trump supporters who are standing up and speaking out about a stolen election.

And nobody cares if a lying cheater is proud of them or not, Donna.

Just sayin’.

CHEATERS! How the democrats are trying to steal the election.

“Yes, democrats are trying to steal the election in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania,” according to John Daniel Davidson of “The Federalist.”

“In the three Midwest battleground states, vote counting irregularities persist in an election that will be decided on razor-thin margins.”

“As of this writing, it appears that Democratic Party machines in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania are trying to steal the election.”

Oh, there’s no doubt…, they are!

“As reporters and commentators [not to mention millions of voters] went to bed early Tuesday morning, all three states were too close to call, but President Trump led former Vice President Joe Biden by comfortable margins—far beyond what had been predicted in the polls. None of the networks called these states because enough mail-in ballots remained uncounted that it could swing either way, but Trump’s position looked good.”

Yes, it did.

“Then, something strange happened in the dead of the night.”

Haven’t you heard that “nothing good happens after two in the morning?!”

“In both Michigan and Wisconsin, vote dumps early Wednesday morning showed 100 percent of the votes going for Biden and zero percent—that’s zero, so not even one vote—for Trump.”

That, my friends, is what you would call statistically impossible, under “normal” ballot processing.

“In Michigan, Biden somehow got 138,339 votes and Trump got none, zero, in an overnight vote-dump.”

“When my Federalist colleague Sean Davis noted this, Twitter was quick to censor his tweet, even though all he had done was compare two sets of vote totals on the New York Times website. And he wasn’t the only one who noticed—although on Wednesday it appeared that anyone who noted the Biden vote dump in Michigan was getting censored by Twitter.”

Hmmm.  It seems that the twits at Twitter were poised to censor any shenanigans their friends perpetrated on the election.

“Others were quick to note the partisan censorship from Twitter and raise concerns over how 100 percent of a vote dump could possibly go to Biden. But the social media giant has maintained its crackdown on sharing this information. Twitter users could not like or share a tweet from the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh noting the 138,339-vote dump.”

‘“Buzzfeed’ later reported that according to a spokesperson at ‘Decision Desk HQ,’ the votes for Biden were the result of a ‘data error’ from a ‘file created by the state that we ingested.’ When the state noticed the ‘error’ it updated its count, which somehow gave 138,339 votes to Biden and zero to Trump.”

Sounds legit…, NOT!!!

And “Ingested?”

The words “ingested” and “election” should definitely be mutually exclusive when talking about an election.  

 “There was also something suspicious about the vote reporting in Antrim County, Michigan, where Trump beat Hillary Clinton by 30 points in 2016. Initial vote totals there showed Biden ahead of Trump by 29 points, a result that can’t possibly be accurate, as plenty of journalists noted.”

“After the strange results caught national attention, election officials in Antrim County said they were investigating what they called ‘skewed’ results, working with the company that provides their election software to see what went wrong. The county clerk said they plan to have an answer by Wednesday afternoon.”

So, as usual, when you get caught, you just blame “the computer.”

“Then another mysterious all-Biden vote dump happened in Wisconsin. Biden miraculously overcame a 4.1-point Trump lead in the middle of the night thanks to vote dumps in which he got—you guessed it—100 percent of the votes and Trump got zero.”

It almost hilarious how brazen these democrat cheaters are that they don’t even make any sort of attempt to make their “vote dump” appear somewhat plausible.   

Note the vertical lines in both graphs below:

“On Wednesday, the Trump campaign demanded a full recount in Wisconsin, citing ‘reports of irregularities in several Wisconsin counties which raise serious doubts about the validity of the results.’”

“In Pennsylvania, the Democratic scheme to steal the election is a bit different. Rather than vote dumps that impossibly go 100 percent to Biden, Pennsylvania is relying on the Democratic Secretary of State’s plan to count indisputably late mail-in ballots as though they were received on Election Day—even if they have no postmark.”

“This plan was of course rubber-stamped by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which cited the need for ‘equitable relief’ to address mail delays amid the pandemic.”

And that would be what you would call “illegal.”

State legislatures are the only governmental entities who can legally change a state’s voting procedures.   

“Note that this isn’t just about ballots that come in after Election Day, but about ballots that come in after Election Day that don’t even have a postmark—that is, there is no way to tell when the ballots were mailed, or from where.”

No potential for fraud there!

This is exactly the situation President trump had been saying he was concerned about for months prior to the election.

And as usual, he was right.

“Although it’s true that the long delays we’ve seen for absentee ballot counts are due in part to state laws in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania that prohibit the counting of absentee ballots before Election Day, which is not the case in most other states. But the cumulative circumstances under which these absentee ballots are now being tallied is highly suspicious.”

Highly.

“Unless election officials in Michigan and Wisconsin can explain the overnight vote-dumps and Pennsylvania officials can explain their rationale for counting ballots with no postmark, the only possible conclusion one can come to right now is that Democrats are trying to steal the election in the Midwest.”

But wait…, there’s more.

Miranda Devine for The New York Post says, “Biden may steal an election for the elitists, but Democrats will regret it.”

“Let’s be real. Goliath was never going to let David breeze through the rematch.”

“The provinces, for whom President Trump is an instrument, not an end in himself, were never going to have an easy time winning the 2020 election against the amassed might of the Democratic Party, the ‘Fake News’ media and allied pollsters, Big Tech, woke billionaires and the celebrity class, who united to stamp out the barbarian orange emperor.”

Dang, Miranda, you’re good!

“The ‘chumps’ and ‘ugly folk,’ as Joe Biden calls them, came out in their glorious millions from the American heartland on Election Day and now we will see if people power prevails, if the nationalist populist movement enabled by Donald Trump, but not defined by him, lives to fight another day against the corrupt globalists represented by the sad husk of Biden.”

I like that…, “the sad husk of Biden.”

He is sad.

“It boils down to Trump’s belief that the Democrats perpetrated widespread voter fraud in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and elsewhere to steal the election.”

“While even those in his own party are urging him to lose gracefully [Please note that this is fake news.  No one in the republican party, other than the obvious RINOs, are urging President Trump to “lose gracefully.], the president has every right to ensure electoral laws are enforced to prevent fraud.”

“In fact, he owes it to the 68 million deplorables who voted for him.”

“To that end, Trump has turned to an old ally, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, to lead a heroic legal challenge.”

“In a press conference in Philadelphia Wednesday, Giuliani laid out one clear anomaly in which, contrary to Pennsylvania law, Republican election observers were denied the right to oversee the counting of 120,000 ballots by being forced to stand 20 to 30 feet away from where they were being counted.”

‘“They were never able to see the ballot itself, never able to see if it was properly postmarked, properly addressed, properly signed on the outside…, this went on for 20 hours. While all of you thought there was some kind of legitimate count going on here in Philadelphia, it was totally illegitimate.’”

“Giuliani’s team has also launched a lawsuit in Wisconsin where he says that, after election observers had gone home, ‘at 3 or 4 in the morning about 120,000 ballots appeared…, and they all got counted.’”

“The Trump campaign also filed a lawsuit in Michigan Wednesday, with campaign manager Bill Stepien claiming Republican observers were denied ‘meaningful access to numerous counting locations to observe the opening of ballots and the counting process, as guaranteed by Michigan law.’”

Laws shmaws.

“There are other allegations of fraud or irregularities, late-counted votes and suspected vote harvesting being reported around the country.”

“In one case, a woman claiming to be an election volunteer in Michigan’s Clark County claimed on video she had discovered a box of 500 ballots outside the counting facility from people who were not on the voter rolls.”

“Despite the Democrats pouring millions into flipping Senate seats, their efforts were ultimately feeble as Republican stalwarts like Sen. Lindsey Graham [and Mitch McConnell] easily won reelection.

“In Arizona — which was called early for Biden on election night, but the Trump campaign still says they can win — a ‘data error’ claimed 95 percent of votes had been counted yesterday when only 86 percent had been, and the remainder reportedly were from Trump-heavy counties.”

You don’t say.

“So, you can see that, in such a close election, Trump’s concerns are not frivolous.”

“Despite ‘racist’ charges, Trump did better with minorities than any GOP candidate in 60 years.”

“In any case, Biden as much as declared victory yesterday, saying that by the time the count is finished, ‘I believe I will be the winner…, we are winning in enough states to reach the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.’”

“Trump’s campaign claimed Wednesday he still had a path to victory if he keeps Pennsylvania and somehow Arizona comes back to him.”

“But even if Trump does lose, it may be a blessing in disguise for Republicans.”

I wouldn’t go that far.

“The result has crushed Democratic expectations of a clean sweep. It wasn’t a landslide win against an unpopular president, as we had been told so confidently for months.”

“If Biden wins, it will be by the narrowest margin.”

“And all the hundreds of millions spent on retaking the Senate came to nothing, with the Republicans looking to hold onto their lead. The top targets, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen. Lindsey Graham, survived easily.”

“The fatal miscalculations of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in cynically refusing to negotiate on the latest stimulus bill has cost the Democrats dearly in the House, where they have gone backward by at least six seats. They did not manage to get rid of a single Republican. So much for the blue wave.”

“The failure means that in 2022, the House is more likely to revert to Republican control, setting up a lame-duck presidency.”

“The Democrats won’t be able to pack the Supreme Court, abolish the Electoral College or make DC and Puerto Rico states. They will struggle to impose the Green New Deal.”

“Unfortunately, nothing can be done to stop a President Biden-Harris repeat of the geopolitical errors of the Obama presidency, such as appeasing China and Iran’s mullahs and signing onto the Paris climate accord.”

“But a President Biden in cognitive decline will sooner or later be replaced by his unpopular, untested vice president, Kamala Harris.”

“Saddled with a recession and policies that will only exacerbate economic decline, the next four years will hobble Democrats.”

“Their flaws and hypocrisy will be on full display, with a good chance of the 2024 presidential race being won by one of the new generation of Republican heirs to Trumpism.”

“Whoever wins this election, the result is a humiliation for the Trump-deranged media and the tame pollsters who provide them with the justification for their dishonest political narrative.”

“Let history record that on the Sunday before the election, The New York Times declared that ‘all 15’ of their columnists suffer from mandatory Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

“Whoever wins, this election has exposed the frauds and liars who pose as our elites, and [at least] half of America won’t forget it.”

I sure won’t.

Hey, Lyin’ Joe Biden…, quit trying to laugh-off the truth!

Honestly, Joe,…, there’s nothing funny about your family’s corruption or your pathological lying.  

Every time, during this last presidential debate, President Trump raised some of the inconvenient truths about your lies, your record, your policy positions, or your family’s criminal activity, we were subjected to an annoying smirk, a shake of your head, or an attempt to laugh-off any question or comment that was uncomfortable for you.

We understand you’re not used to this kind of treatment by your mainstream media friends, but saying, “that’s not true,” or attempting to deflect attention towards some other fraudulent claim just doesn’t cut it…, especially when there is video of you saying exactly what The President claimed you said, or there is documented evidence of you doing exactly what he claimed you did.

It’s honestly quite frustrating to see you are allowed to continually get away with this course of action, while we see President Trump’s feet held to the fire on everything he has said and even things he didn’t actually say!

It’s a shame that you are treated like a pathetic, old, dementia patient, Sleepy Joe, even as you try and weasel your way into the toughest and most demanding job in the world. 

It’s hard to believe that you were the best the democrats could come up with.  

C’mon man!

Mail-in, shmail-in.

Oh great…, we’re graduating to using “snail mail” to somehow enhance our voting system.

According to Tyler Olson of Fox News, “President Trump said Monday that it could take two months for Americans to see a result from November’s presidential election — a comment that came amid a tense back-and-forth over the merits of universal mail-in voting during an interview with Axios journalist Jonathan Swan.”

I believe taking two months to get the final election results is very optimistic.

On a side note…, you never hear the words “amid a tense back-and-forth” when describing Joe Biden’s interaction with a reporter do you?

Just sayin’.

Anyway…, “The comments during the ‘Axios (a news website) on HBO’ interview come as the debate over universal mail-in voting — which many states are doing despite Swan incorrectly asserting otherwise several times during the interview — has reached a fever pitch. Universal mail-in voting is a relatively novel practice in the U.S. in which states, largely because of the coronavirus pandemic, are mailing ballots (not applications for ballots) to all voters whether they request one or not.”

amailin 9

Hey…, like they say, “Vote early and vote often!”

amailin 1

“Some states, like Maryland, are mailing absentee ballot applications to voters rather than the ballots themselves. And such voting, requiring an application to get an absentee ballot, has long been common in the U.S. What is new is states mailing ballots to voters unprompted.”

‘“We went through World War I, you went to the polls, you voted. We went through World War II, you went to the polls, you voted. And now because of the China virus, we’re supposed to stay home, send millions of ballots all over the country, millions and millions,’ Trump told Swan during their wide-ranging conversation. ‘You know, you could have a case where this election won’t be decided on the evening of Nov. 3. This election could be decided two months later.’”

“Inauguration Day is about two-and-a-half months after Election Day. Swan replied that there is nothing necessarily wrong with having a delayed result, as long as the result is correct.”

What Mr. Swan means is, he has no problem waiting, however long it takes, until enough votes are produced to make the democrat the winner in the race.

‘“It could be decided many months later,’ Trump said. ‘Do you know why? Because lots of things will happen during that period of time. Especially when you have tight margins, lots of things can happen. There’s never been anything like this … Now, of course, right now we have to live with it, but we’re challenging it.’”

Your completely right, Sir…, LOTS of things can happen with these ballots.  They can mysteriously disappear, and they can miraculously appear…, whatever the case dictates.

“The president was referencing the lawsuits the Republican National Committee (RNC) and his campaign are bringing against some states over universal mail-in voting or other, similar issues.”

amailin 4

“Trump on Monday threatened legal action against a universal mail-in voting plan in Nevada. Republicans, who oppose universal mail-in voting, have worried it could lead to ballot harvesting, ballots for dead people or ballots for people who’ve moved being fraudulently filled out, as well as ballots being lost in the mail, and more.”

amailin 8

Ballot harvesting is the gathering and submitting of mail-in voter ballots by political operatives, third-party individuals, volunteers or workers, rather than submission by the voters themselves directly to ballot collection sites.

No potential for voter fraud here!!!

In fact, according to Andrew O’Reilly of Fox News, “A minor change in California’s election laws may have had a major effect on [the 2018] midterm elections that saw Democrats steamroll their Republican rivals and claim all but seven of the Golden State’s 53 House seats.”

What happened with those seven seats that went to republicans?

Did they run out of ballots to forge?

Or was the margin of victory in those districts just too much to realistically flip?

“Despite holding substantial leads on Election Day, many Republican candidates in California saw their advantage shrink, and then disappear, as late-arriving Democratic votes were counted in the weeks following the election. While no hard evidence is available, many observers point to the Democrats use of ‘ballot harvesting’ as a key to their success in the elections.”

amailin 6

‘“Anecdotally there was a lot of evidence that ballot harvesting was going on,’ Neal Kelley, the registrar for voters in Southern California’s Orange County, told Fox News.”

“In Orange County – once seen as a Republican stronghold in the state– every House seat went to a Democrat after an unprecedented ‘250,000’ vote-by-mail drop-offs were counted, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.”

amailin 10

‘“People were carrying in stacks of 100 and 200 of them. We had multiple people calling to ask if these people were allowed to do this,’ Kelley said.”

Can you imagine this going on across the country?

I think President Trump is right…, it would be weeks, probably months before the final vote was determined.

However long it would take democrats to produce enough ballots to get their desired result.

Tyler Olsen continues, “Democrats, on the other hand, have cited studies saying voter fraud via mail is relatively rare in the U.S., and noted that Trump and many on the right have voted via mail with absentee ballots — ballots a voter requests through a process before mailing in their vote. But universal mail-in voting has never been tried on the scale Democrats propose this fall.”

amailin 3

You have to realize that democrats like to blur the line between absentee ballots and mail-in ballots for their own benefit.

“Already, increased mail-in voting has led to problems throughout the country, including four men being charged with voter fraud in Paterson, N.J., 100,000 ballots rejected in California during the March presidential primary, and more.”

Carl Campanile, Nolan Hicks and Bernadette Hogan for The New York Post report that, “The mail-in ballots of more than 84,000 New York City Democrats who sought to vote in the presidential primary were disqualified, according to new figures released by the Board of Elections.”

“The city [Board of Elections] BOE received 403,103 mail-in ballots for the June 23 Democratic presidential primary.”

“But the certified results released revealed that only 318,995 mail-in ballots were counted.”

“That means 84,108 ballots were not counted or invalidated — 21 percent of the total.”

“One out of four mail-in ballots were disqualified for arriving late, lacking a postmark or failing to include a voter’s signature, or other defects.”

And that election was just democrats running against other democrats!!!

Adam K. Raymond of the Intelligencer reports, “According to the New York Times elections-results page, three congressional primaries and a handful of State Senate and General Assembly primaries are still up in the air. The final calls haven’t been made for Ritchie Torres and Jamaal Bowman, who challenged longtime Representative Eliot Engel, but both are expected to win. Meanwhile, the race for the Democratic nomination in the 12th Congressional District is much tighter, with incumbent Representative Carolyn Maloney and Suraj Patel separated by fewer than 700 votes.”

These elections took place on June, 23.  Raymond wrote his article July 16, and it is now over a month later and the Maloney-Patel race has still not been determined.

Again…, can you imagine this type of thing on a national level?

And all of these problems occurred in a single congressional district!

Multiply that by hundreds on a national level.

The Asociated Press reports, “A judge [State Superior Court Judge Ernest Caposela] has ruled that a new election will be held in November for a disputed Paterson City [New Jersey] Council seat, just weeks after the race’s apparent winner and a sitting councilman were charged with voter fraud.”

“Alex Mendez had won a special election on May 12 [it’s now over three months later] to fill the seat, but claims of voter fraud were soon raised. An investigation was then launched after the U.S. Postal Service’s law enforcement arm told the state attorney general’s office about hundreds of mail-in ballots located in a mailbox in Paterson, along with more found in nearby Haledon.”

“Voter fraud charges were brought in June against Mendez, Paterson Council Vice President Michael Jackson and two other men: Shelim Khalique, of Wayne, and Abu Rayzen, of Prospect Park. An attorney for Councilman William McKoy, who had been defeated by Mendez, then successfully sought an injunction that barred Mendez from being sworn into office.”

“President Donald Trump has cited the disputed race as a case study in what could happen in an election conducted mostly by mail. His re-election campaign sued New Jersey on Tuesday in a bid to stop the state’s plans to conduct the November general election mostly by mail.”

I guess the incredible problems they experienced in a relatively small local election with mail-in voting did not phase them and their desire to be able to manipulate the state’s elections in November.

And again, and again…, can you imagine this type of thing extrapolated out on a national level?

In addition to all of that…, when people go to vote in person, election officials won’t know if they already voted via a mail-in ballot.

The election in November has the potential to be one hot mess.

amailin 11

If the democrats are trying to turn this whole process into a three-ring circus, delegitimize our entire election process, and basically render our elections meaningless, they’re doing a good job of it.

amailin 12

Just remember, democrats…, when it gets to the point that law abiding citizens feel their vote doesn’t matter anymore, you’re going to have a bigger problem on your hands…, a way bigger problem.

Just sayin’.

When I see a Joe Biden yard sign…

When I see a Biden for president yard sign, I see a sign that says its owner is an idiot.

I’m really quite embarrassed for that person, or family…, I really am.

And if they’re not an idiot, then they’re a pursoseful anti-American.

When you advertise your support for Joe Biden with a yard sign, what are you really saying to everyone else?

abidensign 1

You’re saying you support a doddering old fool, who is incapable of thinking and speaking on his feet without a teleprompter.

abidnsihn 12

You’re saying you support a man who has been in government for 50 years, who has accomplished very little in all of those years, who has been on the wrong side of almost every foreign policy issue, yet he blames the current president, who has been in office for only 3½ years for all of our problems.

abidensign 4

But that’s just the beginning…, there’s more…, much more.

You’re saying you support lawlessness, riots, and the looting and burning of our cities.

abidensign 10

aport 12

You’re saying you support the ANTIFA fascists and their communist tactics.

You’re saying you support the Black Lives Matter organization and their Marxist, anti-American intentions.

You’re saying you support the propagandizing of our news media, and the censoring of conservative speech, or any speech that does not agree with the liberal narrative.

abidnsign 9

abidensign 6

You’re saying you support the defunding of the police across our nation, obviously making us less safe.

You’re saying you support giving up our 2nd amendment rights, regarding gun ownership.

You’re saying you support the “Green New Deal,” which would handcuff our economy, and set us back a hundred years energy-wise, industry-wise, transportation-wise, and any other “wise” you can think of.

You’re saying you support open borders to our country.

You’re saying you support granting amnesty and citizenship to anyone who manages to stumble into our country, no questions asked.

You’re saying you support unfettered drug trafficking, child trafficking, and gang trafficking across our borders.

You’re saying you support free college tuition, free healthcare, and free food and housing benefits, whether you’re a legal citizen or not.

You’re saying you support the shipment of American jobs to foreign countries.

You’re saying you support our country “bending over” to foreign governments, terrorists, and anti-American sentiment around the world.

You’re saying you’re willing to ignore Biden’s racist past and racist present.

abidensign 3

You’re saying you’re willing to ignore the claims of Biden’s sexual misconduct (while a United States Senator).

You’re saying you’re willing to ignore Biden’s corrupt behavior with the Chinese government and his dealings with Ukraine.

abidensign 8

abidnsign 7

You’re saying you’re willing to ignore Biden’s role in the biggest scandal in American political history, regarding the spying on the Trump campaign and later the Trump administration.

Like I said…, YOU’RE SAYING YOU’RE AN IDIOT!

Not only that, but you’re saying I hate our country, and I’m willing to do everything I can to ruin it.

The Communist Party in American has already endorsed Joe Biden!

Why don’t you just put up a sign that reads, “I’M AN IDIOT, I HATE AMERICA, VOTE BIDEN!”

Joe said what?!

Here it is…, the continuing saga of Sleepy Joe Biden attempting to speak coherently.

In addition to the Biden campaign’s concern about the China virus, more so, they need to be concerned about dementia, cognitive impairment and decline, and the dreaded “foot in mouth disease.”

abidenrems 6

According to Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News, “Former Vice President Joe Biden raised eyebrows Thursday with comments comparing the African American and Latino communities.”

On a side note…, why aren’t Whites every lumped into, or referred to as, a “community,” or one monolithic culture?”

Just sayin’.

Anyway…, “During an interview that aired at the convention of the National Association of Black Journalists and National Association of Hispanic Journalists, NPR’s [National Public Radio’s] Lulu Garcia-Navarro pressed the presumptive Democratic nominee if he would ‘re-engage’ with Cuba as president, something she suggested would have an impact on Cuban-American voters in Florida.”

‘“Yes, yes,’ Biden responded. ‘And by the way [Oh, oh…, this is when all of Sleepy Joe’s handlers hold their breaths!], what you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.’”

abidenrems 1

abidenrems 5

Okay…, which is it, Joe?  Do we all know or do we all not know?

“He elaborated, ‘You go to Florida, you find a very different attitude about immigration in certain places than you do when you’re in Arizona, so it’s a very diverse community.’”

Thanks for the clarification, Creepy Joe.

abidenrems 12

“The Trump campaign [@TrumpWarRoom] slammed its 2020 rival, tweeting ‘Uhh… did Joe Biden just say that Black people are all the same?’”

The answer to that would be, “yes.”

“Other critics piled on the former VP, [as well]:

‘“There’s no way to dress this up, folks,’ journalist Jeryl Bier [@JerylBier] tweeted.”

“Some of us would call this ‘racist,’” freelance writer Brad Polumbo [@brad_polumbo] tweeted.

Jason Howerton [@jason_howerton], the founder/CEO of Reach Digital tweeted, “It never ends.  This is incredible to witness.”

Rita Panahi [@RitaPanahi], a columnist for The Herald and Weekly Times, tweeted, “Joe! Dude! No. This is worse than ‘poor kids are just as smart as white kids.’”

abidenrems 9

“Biden [also] sparked controversy across social media on Wednesday after a preview clip from the interview showed a separate tense exchange with CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett on whether the former VP has taken a cognitive test.”

‘“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?”’

‘“Come on, man!’”

Gee…, I don’t know Sleepy Joe…, maybe because you want the toughest job in the world, but you don’t seem to be able to communicate coherently at all.

Is that a good enough reason?

‘“That’s like saying you, before you got on this program, you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?’ Biden told Barnett, who is Black.”

Say what?

abidenrems 13

abidenrems 2

“He later knocked President Trump, who previously boasted how he passed a cognitive test.”

‘“If he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and a lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,’ Biden quipped about the president.”

YOU “don’t know what the hell HE’S talking about?”

None of us know what the hell you’re talking about, Sleepy Joe!

Survey says, “Polls are useless!”  

We hear poll results reported to us on a daily basis.

“Most Americans believe this, or most Americans are in favor of that.”

“This politician is leading by so many points, or that politician is dropping in the polls.”

But, are these poll results worthy of even being reported anymore?

apolls 15

The Pew Research Center says, “Polling is not ‘broken.’”

Of course, what would we expect them to say?

That’s what they do…, they poll public opinion.

They’re not going to undermine their own industry, are they?

In an attempt to validate their own value, I believe they have done just that.

Let’s take a look at Pew’s defense of “survey methodology.”

“A comprehensive review of polling accuracy published in 2018 found that ‘relying on vote intention polls from more than 200 elections in 32 countries over a period of more than 70 years, there is no evidence that poll errors have increased over time….’”

Oh, really.

apolls 8

What about the 2016 presidential election polls?

“In 2016, problems with polls in a few key Midwestern states led many people to underestimate the chances of a Donald Trump victory. As a consequence, the immediate post-election assessment was that there had been a complete polling meltdown.”

And rightly so.

apolls 2

“But that ‘insta-narrative’ turned out to be oversimplified. The 2016 election was not, in fact, an industry-wide failure for the polls.”

I beg to differ.

apolls 16

The 2016 election WAS, INFACT, “an industry-wide failure for the polls.”

apolls 9

apolls 14

apolls 4

“Rigorous national surveys – designed to measure the popular vote rather than capture the effects of the Electoral College – were quite accurate by historical standards.”

Is that so?

Then where did all of the “Donald Trump has NO path to victory” talk come from?

“An average of the final, publicly released national polls suggested that Hillary Clinton would win the overall popular vote by 3 percentage points, and she ultimately won by 2 points.”

Again…, really?

I do not recall any polls reporting that Donald Trump was anywhere near 2-3 points within catching Hillary Clinton.

This seems like a bit of revisionist history to me.

apolls 6

Based on the polls, it was almost made to seem that a Trump voter was wasting their time even bothering to vote.

“Front and center among these problems is the fact that many state pollsters didn’t adjust their 2016 polls to reflect that college graduates are more likely to take surveys than adults with less formal education.”

Oh, really.

And what flawed survey did THAT information come from?

How would you “adjust” your poll in this case?

“This mattered more than in previous years, when there weren’t big partisan differences between the two groups. In 2016, however, college grads broke for Clinton while high school grads broke for Trump. State polls that didn’t adjust – or weight – their data by education were left with a biased sample.”

Sooooo, you have to be able to anticipate your poll results beforehand in order for you to be able to correctly adjust your poll results?

Alrighty then.

apolls 12

“Looking ahead to 2020, election junkies can expect to see some high-quality polling done at the national level and in many states.”

Really?

apolls 3

Why would we expect that?

Because that’s what you want us to believe for your own sake?

Survey says…, BINGO!

apolls 5

“The polling industry was founded using mail and face-to-face interviews before it adapted to the rise of telephone connectivity. It is in the midst of another metamorphosis, changing once again to meet the spread of internet access. This means we are in a period of great variety in survey methods. With that comes innovation, risk, creativity and challenges.”

“While evidence suggests that well-funded, telephone-based surveys still work [And what evidence would that be?], they have become much more difficult and expensive to conduct. Difficult because the swarm of robocalls Americans now receive, along with the development of call blocking technologies, means that lots of people don’t answer calls from unknown numbers.”

“Response rates have gone from 36% in 1997 to 6% today.”

Wait…, what?

apolls 11

“Response rates have gone from 36% in 1997 to 6% today.”

And Pew doesn’t see this as a serious problem?

Or, just a problem they are willing to overlook?

“The good news is that Pew Research Center studies conducted in 1997, 2003, 2012 and 2016 found little relationship between response rates and survey accuracy, and other researchers have found similar results.”

“Little relationship,” huh?

That would be “good news,” if it were true!

“The bad news is that it’s impossible to predict whether this remains true if response rates go down to 4%, 2% or 1%, and there is no sign that this trend is going to turn around as peoples’ technology habits continue to evolve.”

“It’s impossible to predict,” huh?

Again, I beg to differ.

The “bad news,” for Pew is, I think it’s completely reasonable to predict that such low response rates would definitely affect survey accuracy…, even more than they do now.

The question is, if the use of phone polls are fading out of these surveys, what is filling the response gap?

Pew Research Center says, “The internet.”

“As digital access became the norm, pollsters began to look for a way to reach respondents online. This method has a number of upsides [And a number of serious downsides.]. People can take the survey in private and at their convenience, pollsters don’t have to hire and manage roomfuls of live interviewers or pay phone bills, and survey methodologists have found that there are measurement advantages to self-administration. Market research surveys moved en masse to the web, and academics were drawn to the combination of low costs and ease of experimentation.”

“There is, however, one significant challenge. While there are ways to draw random samples of the U.S. population offline using master lists of people’s home addresses or phone numbers (thanks to the U.S. Postal Service and Federal Communications Commission, respectively), there is not yet a way to do this through the internet.”

NO WAY TO DRAW RANDOM SAMPLES THROUGH THE INTERNET!

Oh…, that’s the only “challenge?”

That’s a pretty significant challenge, I would say.

“Traditional survey research is aggressively based on the statistical theory of the random sample, where every member of the population has an identical (or at least known and nonzero) chance of being included. This produces surveys that reflect the country in all its racial, ethnic, religious and income diversity. Low response rates can erode the randomness of the sample.”

EXACTLY!!!

The methodology, that Pew describes here, blows the whole concept of “random sampling” out of the water…, making their surveys, and the surveys of others, virtually worthless.

apolls 1

It’s the complete randomness factor that lends any level of validity to any of these polls.  Without that, we are really left with nothing worth reporting…, unless, of course, the poll seems to be in your favor.
