Have you seen this tree?

Have you seen this missing Christmas tree, or another one that looks just like it?

According to Julia Musto of Fox News, “GOP lawmakers’ second Christmas tree vanishes from Wisconsin Capitol!”

“Vanishes?!”

What?!

Did someone come down the capitol’s chimney in the middle of the night?  

Maybe we should change the capitol of Wisconsin’s name from Madison to Whoville!

“Two Wisconsin Republican lawmakers who put up an artificial Christmas tree in the state’s Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday, just hours after a first tree was removed, found it had vanished on Wednesday morning.”

“The earlier attempt had been thwarted by Democratic Governor Tony [‘The Grinch’] Evers, who said no permit had been provided for the display and that the coronavirus pandemic had closed the building to the public.”

Ahhh, the dreaded government permit.

You’re a mean one, Mr. Evers!

“Reps. Paul Tittl and Shae Sortwell had requested to put up a ‘historical display’ on the rotunda’s ground floor, but their motion was swiftly denied by Evers.”

“The ‘great and powerful’ Evers denies your request!”

“An appeal was also shot down on Thursday by Capitol Police Chief [Wisconsin ‘SS’ Police Chief] David Erwin, who said that the Department of Administration did not have the authority to approve displays on the ground floor of the Capitol.”

In this Dec. 7, 2020 file photo, an artificial Christmas tree that two Republican lawmakers set up stands in the Wisconsin Capitol rotunda in Madison, Wis. The tree was removed Tuesday, Dec. 15, 2020, because the lawmakers did not have a permit.”

“Traditionally, in a year without a pandemic, the Capitol’s tree draws visitors from around the state during the holiday season.”

Wow, the pandemic works as an excuse for everything!

The democrats must be so proud of themselves for coming up with the virus strategy, along with the help from the Chinese, of course.

“Evers has insisted on referring to that tree as a ‘holiday tree,’ citing inclusivity.”

“Inclusivity?”

What about when protesters of former Governor Scott Walker invaded the capitol building there, hung obnoxious posters and banners everywhere, and refused to leave?

That didn’t threaten inclusivity? 

I know I definitely felt excluded.

Although, we should all know by now that only non-democrats are required by the democrats to be “inclusive.”

Democrats are allowed to censor, lie, exclude, and deceive at their leisure.    

“In a letter explaining why their first [Christmas tree] had been removed, the Department of Administration’s Assistant Deputy Secretary Olivia Hwang suggested that the lawmakers reach out to Rep. Amy Loudenbeck.  Loudenbeck, also a Republican, had received a permit to erect an artificial Christmas tree on the first floor.”

Ahhh, Olivia Hwang…, such a good little Nazi in training…, fresh out of indoctrination training at the University of Wisconsin there.

“When Tittl and Sortwell found out that their festive addition would be removed from the Capitol’s ground floor, they acted quickly — applying for a permit with both Loudenbeck and the administration.”

“Then, they set up a second tree on Facebook Live.”

“The lawmakers called the act a peaceful protest of Evers’ administration, pointing to their First Amendment rights.”

“The artificial tree, they argued, does not cost anything.”

Apparently, they think republicans have the right to peacefully protest like rioters, arsonists, vandals, and looters do!

Silly republicans!  

“The ornaments on the fake evergreen were sent in from all over the country and Tittl plans to donate extra ornaments to nursing homes in his district.”

‘“It doesn’t hurt anything,’ he said in an interview with The Associated Press. ‘It’s not using any resources. It doesn’t have to be watered. Kids from all over the country have sent us ornaments to put on the tree.’”

“The next morning, though, the second tree was gone.”

‘“Last night they took our tree down again, with ornaments and all,’ Tittle posted to his Facebook page.”

That sounds like a familiar storyline!

Yes, you truly are a mean one, Mr. [Grinch] Evers!

The “fix” was obviously in.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court tossed out President Trump’s election lawsuit on everything BUT the merits of the case.

According to the Associated Press, “The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Monday rejected President Donald Trump’s lawsuit attempting to overturn his loss to Democrat Joe Biden in the battleground state, ending [President] Trump’s legal challenges in state court about an hour before the Electoral College was to meet to cast the state’s 10 votes for Biden.”

“The President sought to have more than 221,000 ballots disqualified in Dane and Milwaukee counties, the state’s two most heavily Democratic [and most heavily populated] counties. In a 4-3 ruling, Justice Brian Hagedorn, a conservative writing for the majority, said the Trump campaign was ‘not entitled to the relief it seeks.’”

Okay…, first of all…, why is it important to note that Justice Hagedorn is supposedly a “conservative?”  Is that supposed to lend some credence to his opinion?

I guess so. 

“Hagedorn used a sports analogy when ruling against Trump, saying he waited too long to raise his complaints.”

‘“Our laws allow the challenge flag to be thrown regarding various aspects of election administration,’ Hagedorn wrote.”

He seems to assume everyone reading his ruling is familiar with American football, and the National Football League. 

Actually, I think that is quite culturalist and even misogynistic.

But that’s okay, as long as it’s a ruling against President Trump and conservatives.    

‘“The challenges raised by the [President’s] Campaign in this case, however, come long after the last play or even the last game; the Campaign is challenging the rulebook adopted before the season began.’”

As I have stated in earlier blogs, is it ever too late for justice to be served?

And you shouldn’t be looking at any “rulebook” adopted by anyone else other that the state’s legislature, which is solely given the rights to create the laws governing a state’s elections by The United States Constitution. 

“[President] Trump wanted to disqualify absentee ballots cast early and in-person, saying there wasn’t a proper written request made for the ballots; absentee ballots cast by people who claimed ‘indefinitely confined’ status; absentee ballots collected by poll workers at Madison parks; and absentee ballots where clerks filled in missing information on ballot envelopes.”

Please note that there is nothing in Wisconsin’s election laws, established by the legislature, allowing for any of this.

“The court ruled that [President] Trump’s challenge to voters who were indefinitely confined was without merit and that the other claims came too late.”

“Liberal justices Rebecca Dallet and Jill Karofsky, who sided with Hagedorn, wrote separately to emphasize that there was no evidence of fraud in Wisconsin’s election.”

‘“Wisconsin voters complied with the election rulebook,’ Dallet and Karofksy said. ‘No penalties were committed and the final score was the result of a free and fair election.’”

Even though these two wrote separately from Hagedorn, they sure seem to be writing from the same “playbook,” if you want to use football terminology.

“Karofsky blasted [President] Trump’s case during Saturday’s hearing, saying it ‘smacks of racism’ and was ‘un-American.’ Conservative justices voiced some concerns about how certain ballots were cast, while also questioning whether they could or should disqualify votes only in two counties.”

“Smacks of racism?!”

“Un-American?!

Please, Justice Karofsky, we don’t need an obviously biased and disingenuous lecture from you on top of your misguided and partisan decision regarding this case. 

Karofsky is the larger pictured justice on the right.

“Biden [supposedly] won Wisconsin by about 20,600 votes, a margin of 0.6% that withstood a Trump-requested recount in Milwaukee and Dane counties, the two with the most Democratic votes. Trump did not challenge any ballots cast in the counties he won.”

Oh really?!

That’s odd.

Why would he challenge the counties he won?

And a recount of the same illegal ballots is, of course, just going to produce the same results.

Yes, folks, the “fix” was obviously in.

It’s a real shame that many of these state supreme courts are now making their judgements based on politics rather than the law.

In many cases, our judicial branch of government has “sold its soul” to the politically corrupt neo-fascist manipulators in our country.   

“Justice” has now become what some liberal perceives it to be, or wants it to be, and not what it actually should be.

UPDATE#4: Remember the Alamo! (Friday, 12/11/20).

Well, it’s in the Supreme Court’s hands now.

The only question left is: Is The Supreme Court going to sit back and allow the democrats to steal this election or not?  

According to Tyler Olson and Bill Mears of Fox News, “Texas on Friday morning filed a ‘reply brief’ with the Supreme Court as it asks the tribunal to hear its lawsuit that aims to essentially nullify the presidential elections in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Wisconsin — putting the ball in the justices’ court to issue an order in the case.”

“The ‘briefing stage’ of Supreme Court litigation consists of the first party, in this instance, Texas, asking the court to hear the case. Then opposition briefs are filed by those on the other side of the case. Then the first party is allowed to file a ‘reply brief,’ which Texas did Friday morning.”

‘“Defendant States do not seriously address grave issues that Texas raises, choosing to hide behind other court venues and decisions in which Texas could not participate and to mischaracterize both the relief that Texas seeks and the justification for that relief,’ the Texas brief says of the opposition briefs filed by Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia Thursday.”

“Texas continues: ‘An injunction should be issued because Defendant States have not—and cannot—defend their actions.’”

“The justices now could simply issue an order saying that they refuse to hear the case. They could also agree to hear the case and promptly dismiss it or rule in favor of Texas. The justices could also request oral arguments before ruling.”

“The crux of the Texas case is the argument that the four states it is suing — all four of which swung for President-elect Joe Biden — unconstitutionally changed their election statutes in their judiciaries or executive branches, when only the legislature is allowed to make election law. The reply brief Friday says that the four states failed to adequately dispute their point that this makes their entire elections invalid.”

‘“Defendant States do not credibly dispute either that they changed election statutes via non-legislative means or that the Electors Clause preempts such changes,’ the Texas brief says. ‘Accordingly, Texas is likely to prevail on the merits.’”

“Texas’ Friday brief says that it not asking the Supreme Court to decide or overturn the results of the presidential election, but right a constitutional wrong.”

‘“Texas does not ask this Court to reelect President Trump, and Texas does not seek to disenfranchise the majority of Defendant States’ voters,’ Texas’ brief says.”

“It continues: ‘Texas asks this Court to recognize the obvious fact that Defendant States’ maladministration of the 2020 election makes it impossible to know which candidate garnered the majority of lawful votes. The Court’s role is to strike unconstitutional action and remand to the actors that the Constitution and Congress vest with authority for the next step.’”

How can the Supreme Court not act in this case?

‘“The timing is extremely late and the justices have been reluctant to resolve election disputes too close to an election, much less after a presidential election has been conducted and votes certified in the states at issue,’ [University of Richmond School of Law professor Carl] Tobias told Fox News.”

“Late?”

Is that all you’ve got?

“Late?”

“Late” regarding what?

Is it ever too late to request that justice be served?

They just finally completed counting votes not too long ago!

And it seems like they keep finding more ballots to count all the time!  

“There is no specific time limit for the justices to issue an order in the case, though some action is likely to come before Monday [12/14/2020], which is when presidential electors across the country will assemble in their state capitals to cast their electoral votes for president.”

Again, it is my belief that, considering all of the possible ramifications, this decision by The Supreme Court will go down in history as the most important decision it has ever made.

We’ll now see if the five conservative judges on the Supreme Court have the courage to do the right thing.  I already know how the liberal judges are going to vote.

UPDATE#3: Remember the Alamo! (Friday, 12/11/20).

The “defendant states’” responses are in.  Now it will be up to the Supreme Court to decide if Texas’ lawsuit is even worth consideration.

Tyler Olson and Bill Mears of Fox News report that, “Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin and Michigan filed briefs Thursday in response to the Texas case seeking to bar their presidential electors from voting.”

“In briefs submitted with the Supreme Court on Thursday, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin slammed the Texas lawsuit to prevent those four states from casting their electoral votes as a ‘meritless’ effort to ‘decimate the electorate of the United States.’”

Excuse me Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, but the Texas lawsuit is hardly “meritless.”

Taken from the filed Texas motion and supporting documentation:

“Expert analysis using a commonly accepted statistical test further raises serious questions as to the integrity of this election.”

“The probability of former Vice President Biden winning the popular vote in the four Defendant States—Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—independently given President Trump’s early lead in those States as of 3 a.m. on November 4, 2020, is less than one in a quadrillion, or 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000. For former Vice President Biden to win these four States collectively, the odds of that event happening decrease to less than one in a quadrillion to the fourth power (i.e., 1 in 1,000,000,000,000,000^4). See Decl. of Charles J. Cicchetti, Ph.D. (“Cicchetti Decl.”) at ¶¶ 14-21, 30-31. See App. 4a-7a, 9a. 11.”

So, expert mathematical analysis is saying that Joe Biden winning the vote in these four states, given the circumstances, was basically impossible.

We have to listen to the “experts” after all, don’t we?

We have to follow the Science, don’t we?  

Just sayin’.  

“The response briefs were filed just ahead of a 3 p.m. deadline the Supreme Court previously gave the states to respond to the Texas suit.”

“It [the Texas lawsuit] aims to take advantage of the Supreme Court’s original jurisdiction in disputes between states, bypassing lower federal courts, which have uniformly ruled against other election-related litigation by President Trump and his allies.”

Bypassing the lower federal courts, in this case, was key.  The lower courts, in regards to this case, would most certainly dismiss it out of hand, either because the judge had a liberal bias, or the judge did not want to assume the responsibility for ruling in favor of Texas.      

“The Texas suit gained the backing of 17 other states Wednesday when, led by Missouri, they filed a brief endorsing the Paxton’s case. Then on Thursday, Missouri and five other states filed another brief with the Supreme Court this time asking to be allowed to join Texas as litigants in the case.”

“But despite the widespread support from red-state attorneys general for Texas’ case, attorneys general Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Wisconsin attacked the suit in their responses as ‘meritless’ and ‘nakedly political.’”

‘“Texas waited until now to seek an injunction to nullify Pennsylvania’s election results because all of the other political and litigation machinations of Petitioner’s preferred presidential candidate have failed,’ the Pennsylvania brief, led by Attorney General Josh Shaprio, states.”

So, what? 

What does this, if even true, have to do with the merits of Texas’ lawsuit?     

‘“The Trump campaign began with a series of meritless litigations. When that failed, it turned to state legislatures to overturn the clear election results,’ Pennsylvania continued. ‘Upon that failure, Texas now turns to this Court to overturn the election results of more than 10% of the country. Texas literally seeks to decimate the electorate of the United States.’”

Nooo…, Texas now turns to the Court to stop the fraudulent election results from 10% of the country decimating the rights of the other 90% of the country!

‘“Texas asserts that this Court’s intervention is necessary to ensure faith in the election. But it is hard to imagine what could possibly undermine faith in democracy more than this Court permitting one state to enlist the Court in its attempt to overturn the election results in other states,’ the Wisconsin brief says. ‘Merely hearing this case—regardless of the outcome—would generate confusion, lend legitimacy to claims judges across the country have found meritless, and amplify the uncertainty and distrust these false claims have generated.’”

“Michigan, led by Attorney General Dana Nessell, also laid out a variety of factors that it believes weigh heavily against the Texas case.”

‘“The base of Texas’s claims rests on an assertion that Michigan has violated its own election laws. Not true,’ the Michigan brief says.”

Now there you go lying again, Ms. Nessell.

I know…, it just comes with the job, and with being a democrat.  

“The crux of the arguments from Texas and the states that support it is that the Constitution gives only state legislatures the power to set rules regarding presidential elections. Therefore, when the executive and judicial branches in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia changed how their elections would work this year in light of the coronavirus pandemic, their elections became invalid.”

‘“When non-legislative actors in other States encroach on the authority of the ‘Legislature thereof’ in that State to administer a Presidential election, they threaten the liberty, not just of their own citizens, but of every citizen of the United States who casts a lawful ballot in that election—including the citizens of amici States,’ the Wednesday brief filed by Missouri and 16 other states says.”

Bingo!

Now, what’s so hard to understand about that, and how can that thinking even be argued with?

Regardless, the democrats are arguing against it.

“But most legal experts agree that for many procedural reasons the Texas case is almost certain to fail, and that their merits argument is fatally flawed too.”

‘“To begin with, the imagined “rule” is universally ignored since states have in fact allowed their governors, judiciaries, or both to make rulings and determinations affecting the manner in which presidential elections are held and electors thus chosen,’ Walter Olson of the libertarian Cato Institute told Fox News.”

This “imagined rule” you refer to, Mr. Olsen, is a little thing called The Constitution of the United States!  

And whether or not states have chosen to ignore The Constitution in the past, has no bearing on whether or not their current election processes are legal or not.

It’s really a childish excuse. 

“We’ve established illegal voting processes before, so…”

“Harvard law professor [Okay…, I can already see where this is going!] and former Supreme Court clerk to late Justice Antonin Scalia, Lawrence Lessig, meanwhile, said that the motivations for the Texas case are purely political.”

See, I told you!  

‘“This is political posturing through litigation. Not one of those attorneys general believes they are entitled to win,’ he told Fox News. ‘As lawyers, that should stop them from signing onto such an action. But they are acting as politicians, not lawyers here — to the detriment of the rule of law.’”

I really can’t believe you were able to get that statement out, Mr. Lessig, without choking on your own words!

People “acting as politicians,” and the “detriment of the rule of law?!”

Seriously?  

Along with all of the additional states supporting the Texas lawsuit, The President has signed on in support of it, as have 106 House members who filed a brief with the Supreme Court as well.

It is my belief that, considering all of the possible ramifications, this decision by The Supreme Court will go down in history as the most important decision it has ever made.

UPDATE#2: Remember the Alamo! (12/10/20).

Let’s get this party started!

It looks like everyone wants to get in on the fun now.

According to the CBSDFW.com Staff (The Dallas/Fort Worth CBS local affiliate), “Eighteen states — now including Arizona — have joined a Texas lawsuit filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton against the states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia. That lawsuit was filed directly with the United States Supreme Court on Monday, Dec. 7.”

Eighteen states!!!

That’s over a third of the United States!

“The suit asks the court to order the ‘defendant states’ legislatures to displace ‘tainted’ election results in those states and choose their own slate of electors.”

“Paxton sued battleground states on behalf of the state of Texas saying the ‘defendant states’ made unconstitutional changes to their laws before the 2020 election.”

“He said those states tainted the integrity of the vote for Texas and all states.”

“An amicus brief (amicus curiae) or ‘friend of the court’ brief was filed with the high court earlier Wednesday. The states of Missouri, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia have all signed on to the brief that backs the Texas suit.”

“Arizona was the latest state to file an amicus brief on Wednesday bringing the total to 18 states.”

Thank you, thank you, thank you, to all of these other states which have chosen to stand up for justice and stand up for America.

“According to the American Bar Association, ‘Friend of the court’ or amicus curiae briefs are often filed in appellate cases heard by the U.S. Supreme Court and state supreme courts, as well as intermediate courts of appeal. And there is considerable evidence that amicus briefs have influence.”

“On Tuesday evening, the Supreme Court ordered the defendant states to reply by 3 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 10.”

‘“It’s not unusual,’ SMU [Southern Methodist University] Constitutional Law Professor Dale Carpenter told CBS 11. ‘I don’t think it indicates anything very important… I think the court will act quickly on Thursday.’”

‘“The states violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution. By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections,’ said Paxton. ‘Their failure to abide by the rule of law casts a dark shadow of doubt over the outcome of the entire election. We now ask that the Supreme Court step in to correct this egregious error.’”

‘“Ken Paxton is asking that Republican state legislatures in four states be allowed to displace the will of the voters in those States and choose their own slate of electors, presumably to hand the election to Donald Trump in January,’ said [Professor] Carpenter. ‘The Supreme Court is not going to allow that to happen.’”

Nice try professor!

“Displace the will of the voters?!!!

You mean “displace the will” of the cheaters?

That’s the whole point here, Professor!  Tens of thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands, of fraudulent and illegal votes in these 4 defendant states displaces the actual will of legal voters, who submitted legal ballots in the 4 defendant states and every other state in the union.

Excuse me…, but you are such a “tool” and such a “useful idiot,” Professor Carpenter.

I have also heard that President Trump and his legal team have officially signed on to the lawsuit, and that they have asked Senator Ted Cruz of Texas to represent them all and plead the case in the Supreme Court.

Today may end up being a VERY big day in the history of United States and a big day for the future of these United States.

Remember the Alamo!

That’s right ladies and gentlemen…, and, “Don’t mess with Texas!”

Evie Fordham of Fox News reports that, “Texas sues 4 key states at Supreme Court claiming unconstitutional voting changes.”

Alright now…, here we go!  

“Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued battleground states Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin on Tuesday to challenge their 2020 presidential election results.”

‘“Using the COVID-19 pandemic as a justification, government officials in the defendant states of Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (collectively, ‘Defendant States’), usurped their legislatures’ authority and unconstitutionally revised their state’s election statutes,’ Paxton’s complaint says. ‘They accomplished these statutory revisions through executive fiat or friendly lawsuits, thereby weakening ballot integrity.’”

There is no doubt that everything Mr. Paxton just said there is true.

“Paxton is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to ‘declare that any electoral college votes cast by such presidential electors appointed in Defendant States Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin are in violation of the Electors Clause and the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and cannot be counted.’”

You tell ’em Mr. Texas Attorney General!   

“Disputes between states are among the few cases of original jurisdiction for the Supreme Court, meaning lower courts cannot first hear the cases.”

The fact that this suit goes straight to the Supreme Court is huge!

“The four states are among a handful where the Trump campaign is trying to overturn results that handed President-elect Joe Biden the victory. Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin have certified their results, but the Trump campaign is continuing to exhaust its legal options, including through a lawsuit filed last week in Wisconsin.”

Like they say, “It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.”

“The election ‘suffered from significant and unconstitutional irregularities in the Defendant States,’ the filing says, citing the ‘appearance of voting irregularities in the Defendant States that would be consistent with the unconstitutional relaxation of ballot-integrity protections in those States’ election laws.’”

What he said.

All we can do is keep our fingers crossed on this one, but at least we should find out pretty quickly what the Supreme Court has to say about this.

I’ll keep you posted.

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.

More propaganda by omission!

Liberal propaganda, that is.

There were special elections Tuesday, May 12, for two open Congressional seats.  One in California and one in Wisconsin.

But, there was no mention of the results of these races on CNN or their website.

acnnelect 11

In their defense, it was a busy news day.

There were many stories that were much more important, like:

“A teenager accidentally hit and killed her father while learning to park truck.”

“Elle Fanning dressed up as Brad Pitt and nailed it.”

“Sharon Osbourne weighs in on body image debate after Adele’s viral Instagram post.”

“Tina Fey’s daughter crashes interview, calls mom a loser.”

“American artist Rashid Johnson: ‘Anxiety is part of my life.’”

I mean, you can only cover so much news, right?

But why on earth would CNN not even mention who won these elections?

Hmmm.  What’s going on here?

I mean, there are only 435 of these representatives, and they’re responsible for spending all of our money and making all of the federal laws.

You would think that any responsible news organization would at least mention the results.

Ahhh…, well there we have it!

CNN isn’t a responsible news organization…, it’s a part of the propaganda wing for the democrat party!

acnnelect 12

In fact, most of the mainstream, fake news media failed to offer ANY coverage of this as well.

When seen from the proper perspective…, CNN, and all of their fake news friends, not mentioning the special elections makes perfect sense.

You see, in the case of this special election, the two congressional seats were won by republicans, and Trump supporters to boot!

This does not fit the liberals’ narrative!

How could this be?

How could this be, when we are told that the whole country wants President Trump impeached?!

How could this be in the swing state of Wisconsin and the democrat stronghold of California?

And these republicans both won by substantial margins.  These were not wins that were eked out.

According to Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News, “The GOP clinched major victories in two special elections held on Tuesday but was largely ignored by the mainstream media.”

Thank you, Mr. Wulfsohn, and thank God for Fox News.

If it wasn’t for Fox News, we would have no choice but to consume the democrat, mainstream media, fake news tripe.

“Mike Garcia managed to flip California’s 25th District, becoming the first Republican to do that in the state since 1998.”

This isn’t news?

This doesn’t deserve ANY type of mention?

“Garcia, a former Navy combat pilot, was declared the winner on Wednesday after his Democratic challenger, state assemblywoman Christy Smith, conceded the race. The congressional seat was previously held by Rep. Katie Hill, who resigned last year.”

“Wisconsin state senator Tom Tiffany was able to maintain the GOP’s control over the state’s conservative-leaning 7th district left vacant by Rep. Sean Duffy.”

Tiffany was not only “able to maintain” control of Wisconsin’s 7th district seat, he crushed his democrat opponent.  So much so that her name isn’t even mentioned, so as not to completely ruin her political future I suppose.

I have none of those concerns.  Her name is Tricia Zunker.

According to Wisconsin Public Radio, “Because of Wisconsin’s status as a swing state in the 2020 presidential election, the May special election is expected to be closely watched for signs of strength or weakness in Trump’s re-election campaign. Trump needs large margins of victory in Wisconsin’s rural areas to win the state, and the race is seen by many as a test of Democrats’ ability to reach rural voters.”

Ha!  So, I guess they failed the test.

“Past special elections in recent memory generated plenty of news coverage, particularly when Democrats pick up congressional seats as pundits often hype that such victories are a ‘bellwether’ for what’s to come in the upcoming elections.”

“However, there was little to zero mention of Garcia and Tiffany’s victories on any of the major news networks.”

“None of the three broadcast networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, aired any coverage of the special election races during Wednesday’s morning programs. The networks skipped such coverage in the evening news shows as well.”

“CNN completely ignored both races throughout the day. Meanwhile, MSNBC once mentioned Garcia’s likely win on Wednesday morning but ignored Tiffany’s victory.”

Like I have been saying…, the fake news, mainstream media is really just an arm of the democrat party.

We’ve gone past the concern over biased media coverage to calling out these news outlets for what they are…, contrived and constructed liberal propaganda.

How else can you explain their behavior?

And if you’re a democrat…, is that OK?

If that is OK with you…, then you’ve gone from being a victim of the left’s deceit to being a part of the problem.

You’ve graduated from fool to tool.

Anyone who is objective and fair-minded cannot be a democrat.
