A Nation of Laws, not MSM Race Calls

I have to say, I’m a little disappointed with some fellow Conservatives today – seen too many ready to throw in the towel. Has Trump taught them nothing? You just keep fighting and you only quit when you are defeated. Until the whistle blows, it is still on.

Now, to be sure, it is pretty grim – but the MSM calls of the race for Biden are merest propaganda. Had the situations been reversed, they would never have called them for Trump unless Biden quit. The calls are merely to pressure Trump to quit (ha!) and demoralize the GOP base. The demoralization effort has clearly had some effect. So, stop it. Grow a pair. Politics ain’t beanbag.

The bottom line is that we have abundant physical and circumstantial evidence of voter fraud: what remains to be determined is whether or not the courts accept the evidence. And don’t think for a moment that the Democrats and the MSM (but I repeat myself) won’t put massive pressure on judges to rule the “correct” way. This is why Trump’s case has to be airtight – it has to be so overwhelming that fraud occurred that no one ( other than Democrats and the MSM – BIRM) deny it. We’ll see if Team Trump can come up with that – all I know is that Trump went golfing today and took some pictures with a bridal party at the course. He’s in a good mood, so you get and stay in one, too.

    OK, it’s time for the troll tag team to leave. The things you have to believe in in order to support a senile pedophile who’s only major accomplishment in his 47 years in national politics is to enrich himself and his family are repulsive to me and, I suspect, everyone else here. So get lost.

    • Amazona November 8, 2020 / 11:21 am

      Couldn’t agree more, Spook. When they actually deny that Biden’s hand was on Bennett’s daughter’s breast, and that the Florida debacle was not engineered by Dems, there is no reason to suspect that any point made, no matter how well documented, no matter how often it has been proved, will be accepted or acknowledged. That means that no rational discussion can ever take place with any of them.

      They merely illustrate that willful and determined ignorance will never be influenced by facts that contradict the chosen world view—and that it is exactly this mentality that forms the Biden base.

    • Amazona November 8, 2020 / 11:50 am

      If you watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nloOU9J8PQ you can see Biden’s hand flat on the shoulder of a little girl in a red and black dress, then drop down over her breast. She flinches and tries to move away but there is someone standing next to her so she can’t. Then his hand moves back over her breast, and in the closeup you can see that it is cupped, not flat. You can actually see him curl his fingers as his hand slips down over her chest, just as you can see him squeeze Bennett’s daughter’s breast and then do a little pinch before he took his hand away. I didn’t take the time to dig out the Bennett tape but it is a long series of clips from CPAN videos in which he does the same thing to Bennett’s daughter and always looks for a little girl in the entourage of a new Senator to pull in front of him and then pull up to his crotch.

      The pattern is that when Joe tells everyone to look up and they do, he uses this opportunity to fondle a little girl’s breast or pull her head to his crotch.

    Anyway, I am glad the blog will get a good airing-out. I woke up this morning ready to just walk away from it, because everything the Left touches and is allowed to taint becomes so toxic the revulsion is so great that the only way to deal with it is to get away from it.

    Let me toss out an idea —-that this is the time to push for a Constitutional amendment saying that the federal government shall establish and oversee uniform regulations for all elections for federal office. I think this would be a good time to do this, while the upheaval and chaos due to states having different rules and criteria for their own elections has led to the mess we are seeing today. I started thinking along those lines after the 2000 Florida debacle, when Democrats had the ability to manipulate the state election to provide enough chaos, conflict and confusion to either allow them to cheat enough to win or at the very least delegitimize the outcome.

    It’s the delegitimizing of the outcome that bothers me the most. The Left, working through some states, has clearly had the goal of getting its agenda into the White House but, I think, even more so to undermine the confidence of the public in the process of choosing our leaders. With the process itself contaminated by fraud and corruption and its outcome leading not to resolution but just to more divisiveness and conflict, we as a nation become even more destabilized and vulnerable.

    I think the most important thing we can do right now is push, and push hard, for reformation of that process to make it understandable, consistent and transparent. And I think the best way to do that is to have all elections for federal officials be run according to the same rules.

    • Amazona November 8, 2020 / 1:07 pm

      I would say that it is 100% compliant with the Constitution as it involved working through the process the Founders themselves established.

      Clue: the word “AMENDMENT”

    • Retired Spook November 8, 2020 / 2:26 pm

      Nope, knock yourself out. That would be the Constitutional way to eliminate the right to keep and bear arms. Just don’t be surprised if you get a little opposition. But I’m glad to see you’re gaining an understanding of how the system works.

    Now that you have a huge supply of wood, how are you spending your time? I’m in the process of accumulating firewood myself. The heavy wet snow over Labor Day created havoc in my stream bed. I have more than a mile of stream, with at least 1000 trees in the creek bottom, and every one was damaged by the snow. All lost some leafy branches, many of them very large, and some whole trees went down. I know that winter snow will ensure that those leafy branches are broken down into rubble by spring, so I have been on major push to get them out of there.

    I’ve been running two skid steer loaders, one with a big grapple, and two dump trailers to gather up the debris and move it to a big field, where I now have a slash pile almost 200′ long and about 50′ wide. That’s just to get it out of the creek bottom. Eventually I will sort out the wood that is the right size for firewood, and chip a lot of the smaller stuff to use for mulch. Then, when we have enough snow on the ground, we’ll have a big bonfire with the rest. As I work on this, I think of your big push last year to get trees cut up to replenish your wood supply.

    My crew consists of three teenagers, and they not only get a lot done they are wonderful to work with. I have them take turns praying before every meal, and their prayers are so significant I am always impressed. Along with the regular grace before meals they ask for divine protection for our country and for President Trump and nearly always have some other inclusion that surprises me, such as thanking God for the new friend we just made—my new electrician, who said he wanted to come out and help with the huge standing trees that are getting kind of dangerous.

    They are distressed by the recent events but as I remind them, they are people of faith and that means believing that what happens has a reason. I have been assuring them that while the Biden “victory” might hold, depending on what happens with late vote counts and legal decisions, the nation will not fall into total ruin as long as we hold the Senate, and they have to remain upbeat and optimistic because this is a nation which only exists because of divine intervention and I believe it will continue to exist for the same reason.

    We have such interesting conversations. They are all still in school, one doing full-time remote learning and the brother and sister in school two days a week and filling in the rest with online study, so evenings are often homework time and as long as the homework isn’t about math (I’ve told them not to even bother asking me about math) they often ask questions that lead into discussions. This election has had them very deeply upset, but it has encouraged in-depth discussions of things like democracy vs a republic and why the latter is better, how the Constitution was designed to prevent us being governed by a democracy and other similar topics.

    • Amazona November 8, 2020 / 12:52 pm

      Speaking of wood—you live in a little forest and have done a lot of wood cutting. Have you ever run across what I am thinking of as “cannibal trees”?

      Yesterday we cut down a huge old tree I thought was a cottonwood, and in two of the three big boles was an entire smaller tree. That is, a tree with its own bark on the outside, surrounded by the larger trunk of the tree. When the big trunk was cut into chunks it was possible to lift out the core, or the smaller tree, and it was definitely a smaller tree, with its own bark and its own set of rings. I’ve never seen that before.

      It is probably why the tree was dying, as the circulation system of the outer tree was so compromised. The inner and outer trees had continued to grow but as the tree started to die it was no longer possible to determine which leafy branches would have come from which part of the tree.

      There were also several rings in each tree, the inner tree and the outer tree, that were marked with what looked like bright red paint or dye. One thing about working with teenagers—any question calls forth cell phones to “look it up” and apparently this was not a cottonwood tree after all but a boxelder tree (accounting for the yearly invasion of boxelder beetles I guess) and the red indicates a fungus that was present during those years, turning the sap bright red or at least turning the wood of that era red.

        Are these two comments about trees and firewood aimed at me?

      • Amazona November 8, 2020 / 2:39 pm

        Well, I wouldn’t say “aimed”—but as no troll has ever posted anything relating to real life and you and I have talked about your stocking up on firewood, yes, I thought you would understand I was talking about something you and I find of interest. Just trying to talk about something that doesn’t involve in—or, more to the point attract—-Leftist insanity, efforts to draw people into faux “discussions” they can then morph into more of their beloved bickering, or troll droppings.

        We’re going through one of the nicest Indian summers in recent memory, probably 7 or 8 days in a row up through this next Wednesday with daytime highs in the 60’s and 70’s. Today it’s bright sunshine and 72. Last year at this time the temp was in single digits with the first 3 weeks of November, 2019, being the coldest on record.

        I should be out cutting firewood, as we have lots of dead trees down, and I only have one stack 4′ high and 8′ long, but I’ve been too busy cleaning up a bumper crop of leaves. I blew the leaves from around the front of the house and off the driveway a few days ago out into the turnaround circle across from our driveway. Combined with the leaves from my neighbor’s driveway and front yard, me made a pile about the size of a minivan for the kids to play in. Our great granddaughter and her 3 friends from across the street have been having a ball.

        I’ve also raked around 25 wheel barrow loads of leaves out of our pond in the last couple weeks, and the last dump this week has nearly the entire surface covered with Oak leaves. Fortunately they float for a few days, hopefully until the wind picks up out of the northwest and blows them down to the beach on the east end where I can easily rake them out. I have about a half acre of grass around the pond, and Friday afternoon I walked around it with the leaf blower and had it nearly spotless. This morning you can’t even tell I cleaned it. The many joys of living in the woods, but I wouldn’t trade it for a quarter acre lot in a subdivision for anything.

      • Amazona November 8, 2020 / 3:19 pm

        I wouldn’t trade it for a quarter acre lot in a subdivision for anything.

        I know what you mean. The girl who works for me had a large area of the creek bottom cleared of the twigs and small branches I didn’t want to try to mow, and when she came back up the entire area was covered in big leafy branches that had blown down. and we have to start over. I brought my little old 28 HP tractor and landscape rake up last week so now she is raking with equipment, which is easier.

        What I’ve done for leaves in the past was to use a mulching blade on my zero turn lawnmower and then just make a few passes over them. They get chopped up (if they were dry when I did this so they wouldn’t clog the blades) then compost themselves faster without making that dense mat of slippery, decaying leaves.

        From an environmental point of view I don’t like removing the material that will, over time, break down to amend the soil and enrich it. But I figure this has been going on already for few thousand years and right now I want it all cleaned up so I can seed it with grasses and flowers right before it looks like the winter snows are ready to set in, so I have a beautiful grassy creek bottom. The creek was dry for a lot of the late summer and we got into the actual creek bed with a skid steer and cleared out dead trees and debris and sand bars in more than half of its mile long stretch on my property. Next fall I will leave the leaves to decay and feed the forest soil but this year all the branches have to go.

        It is really rewarding to do this kind of cleanup on such a big scale. There were whole parts of my creek bottom where I never went because of the tangle of deadfall and now it will be accessible and really pretty. It’s been in the 50s and 60s all week and after a cold snap the next few days will warm up a little but be dry and sunny so we can keep working on it.

      • Amazona November 8, 2020 / 4:45 pm

        BTW, I learned that the red marks I mentioned are called “spalting” and caused by a fungus, and can make wood very desirable for many purposes as it adds interesting colors and patterns to woods.

    And the call was merely the opinion of what the AP thought would be the outcome. It was not a formal declaration of the winner supported by the certified vote tally of each state. It had no authority and if continued vote counting had changed the totals for some states it would have been nothing more than another bad guess.

    This is a fascinating video. The speaker is quite convincing, and of course as she is recounting her own personal experience in Detroit this is not “anecdotal” but is personal testimony. As you watch, take note of the photos of the counting room. The number of tables was later corrected to 150 tables, and the counting room in Philadelphia was larger and with more tables. And in Philadelphia the poll watchers weren’t allowed near the tables, as evidently some were in Detroit, but kept back behind a barricade so they could only see some of the first row of tables, at a distance.

    3 tremendous Supreme Court Justices, 2 new favorable trade deals with major trading partners, 2 of the worlds top terrorists dead without engaging in any new wars, 3 new peace accords between Israel and Arab neighbors with more to come, US Embassy in Jerusalem, Iran financially broke, NK financially broke, increased funding to HBCU’s, opportunity zones in inner cities, school choice, VA choice so veterans can choose their doctor, improved VA service, right to try drugs for terminally ill patients, largest economic participation of POC’s then at any other time in our history, increased wages, average family of four realized a net gain of $6,500 from tax cuts, regulatory cuts, increased entrepreneurial activity, NASA back on track with Mars within reach.

    These are the accomplishments of the Trump administration in just over the last 3 years and I am sure I have left out even more. (Edited for obscenity. //Moderator)

    From their comments over the last couple days, it’s obvious they have sold their soul to a third world leftist narrative and their indoctrinated and irrational white guilt they harbor has made them slaves to POS POC’s.

    This is not over. Fraud will be exposed, the SC will step in and Trump will be retained. Or it could get messy

      2 of the worlds top terrorists dead without engaging in any new wars

      This is one of the few Trump accomplishments that Biden may be able to undo, assuming his election stands. All the major wars in the 20th century were started by Democrats, and most of them voted for the Iraq War and supported it until they didn’t. I fully expect a Harris/Biden administration will either expand conflicts around the world, or they’ll weaken us to the point where we’ll be attacked — or both.

      They’ll probably also put the clamps on school choice, but I can’t imagine trying to undo all the other gains that minorities made under Trump, not unless they want to lose 100 House seats and a dozen Senate seats in 2022.

      • Amazona November 8, 2020 / 3:32 pm

        As I told the kids, with a Republican Senate they can’t get much Leftist legislation passed, though if Mitt decides to suck up to the Left some more he might try to help them out. Given how much he is now hated in Utah he’s a one-termer anyway so has nothing to lose.

        Efforts to ram things through with EOs will run up against an Originalist Court, so shouldn’t have much success. And the thing about EOs is that all a new president has to do is override them, as Trump has done with so many of Obama’s. (Naturally the Left will screech and squeal that unwinding tyrannical edicts is tyranny, but that’s just the Left.)

  7. Amazona November 8, 2020 / 4:43 pm

    I can see why Trump is in a good mood—he is in a great position.

    If he prevails in the final vote count he gets four more years to undermine Leftist control of this country and get more of his policies enacted, as well as getting a lot of Dem higher-ups sent to prison. If Biden hangs onto his concocted vote tally, Trump’s legacy is still pretty inviolate—little can be undone by a Biden administration. Nothing can get done in Congress unless it is proved to be good for the nation to the satisfaction of many Republican Senators, efforts to undo Executive Orders or impose new ones that are unconstitutional will run headlong into an originalist Court, and the Harris/Biden administration will have a lot of internal conflict to deal with. Sticking to the hard-core hardline radical Leftist ideology pushed by Harris and the other Dem radicals will just guarantee a Republican Congress in two year, because without the invented bogey-man Trump to push back against Dems will have to actually be voting FOR something, for a change. There will be an evolving battle between Biden supporters and the Harris contingent that wants him out, and the Harris contingent is the one backed by Soros and paying professional rioters to continue their reign of terror in some American cities.

    And if Trump does not return to the White House he will just get a chance to go to war with the despised Agenda Media, because he not only has the ability to do that he has the clout to bring in financial backing for a challenge to Agenda Media control over information provide to Americans. If every one of his voters would commit a dollar a month to a new information source led by Trump, that would be nearly $850,000,000 a year to support it, and we can guess that some of Fox’s top talent would love to walk away from its new spineless approach to dealing with the Agenda Media and be part of something significant and game-changing.

    To this I will add that for the first time I can remember the next generation after a major political figure is very promising, regarding talent and commitment and focus. That means that a Trump dynasty could be the most powerful force in the United States if Trump is not president, and waiting in the wings if he is for the day he steps down. I see a multi-generational ferocious love for and dedication to the United States as it was founded and as it should be again, and in this case with the ability to do something about it.

    There is such huge amount of evidence of ballot harvesting and fraud that to let this election go unchallenged would be the bigger crime and here’s a good article that speaks to that:

    I understand the gut churning fear that many of you feel. I also understand the seething rage that has yet to manifest itself. Here the radical left, masquerading as Democrats, have made a fatal mistake. They assume we will go quietly into the Gulag. They don’t know America.

    A friend of mine just send me an iphone video of a Trump campaign worker in Philly showing a lot of POC’s bringing backpacks and gym bags to the polling station at early hours in the morning and being let right on through into the counting areas. They are brazen that’s for sure. And then there is this;

    BREAKING NEWS IN GEORGIA – 132,000 Ballots in Fulton County, Georgia Have Been Identified Which Are Likely Ineligible

    Also no one has to speculate on what a Biden/Harris presidency would bring … just look at California, Oregon, NY, etc. there are real life dystopian examples to point too. So let’s expose the corruption and the fraud and not give one inch to the Marxists.

    Philadelphia’s Republican commissioner calls Trump ‘deranged’ for accusing him and his staff of voter fraud and reveals that the president’s supporters have threatened to kill his officials

    Oh he is a “Republican” Commissioner, wow that must mean he supported Trump but now is seeing just how violent those people can be. I am thinking we should ask the family of Capt.

    You know how the Left is always trying to get the US to be more like Europe? Well, except for this: emphasis mine

    “Liberals and progressives often try to model the U.S. on Western European countries, but you never hear them arguing that we should adopt their voting rules,” John Lott, Jr., president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, wrote in August. “There is a reason for that. Banning mail-in voting or requiring people to use photo IDs to obtain a mail-in ballot is quite common in developed countries, especially in Europe.”

    Maybe the key phrase here is “in developed countries” as the Left seems dedicated to drag THIS country into primitive Might Makes Right banana republic territory run by mob rule, corrupt media and intimidation.

      Their version of compromise is what we call capitulation.

      They love to show graphics of Margaret Atwood’s “handmaidens” meekly marching in lockstep and then saying this represents Conservative women, when in fact it is a perfect example of the submission to the State and its ideology that is demanded by the Left.

      I know the Kavanaugh debacle was not funny, but when you mentioned the accusation of him being a “serial rapist” I remembered how the drooling Left jumped on that as gospel truth in spite of the fact that not a single person could even remember such “rapes” occurring, much less putting him at the scene, and the account came from an unstable Trump hater only after it looked like the Ford complaint was losing air. That is, one seriously biased person with no details, no corroboration, no names, no dates, no locations, absolutely nothing but the claim that she had heard something from someone once upon a time.

      ON THE OTHER HAND a physical laptop computer, signed into a repair shop by Hunter Biden, full of intimate photos of Hunter Biden over a long period of time with different people, with emails to and from Hunter Biden confirmed by some of the senders or recipients, examined by the FBI and confirmed through extensive forensic testing to actually BE a computer used by Hunter Biden, is ignored and its contents dismissed as “unsubstantiated”.

      And now that same drooling Left is claiming there is no evidence—NO EVIDENCE AT ALL !!!! I tell you! of any vote fraud at all anywhere in this recent election.

      Well, except for the dozens of people who have made sworn statements to law enforcement officials about seeing such fraud occurring, in different states, at different times. One of the dismissals is that these accounts are just “anecdotal”, though personal accounts are testimony, not anecdotes. My favorite is the one whining that these people are “anonymous”—so close to the time these same people were inventing “laws” guaranteeing anonymity to whistleblowers to try to protect Vindman from prosecution for violating the Espionage Act by revealing classified information to someone not cleared to receive it.

  13. Amazona November 9, 2020 / 4:50 pm

    What ballots fail to qualify as votes?

    Ballots that are not verified by signature on an accompanying document
    Ballots that are not filled out by the voters
    Ballots that are not received in secrecy envelopes or folders
    Ballots that are not received by the end of the day on November 3 or, in some states, at least legally postmarked on November 3
    Ballots cast by non-citizens
    Ballots cast by any person in more than one state or precinct
    Ballots cast by dead people (or cats)
    Ballots submitted by someone other than the person who requested or received them
    Ballots that cannot be linked to registered voters
    Ballots that do not clearly and without ambiguity show the intent of the voters
    Ballots that are photocopied
    Ballots that are not received in envelopes if they are considered mail-in or drop-off ballots
    Ballots that are copied by third parties
    Ballots that are altered in any way
    Ballots that are received with markings that indicate the intent of the voter on the envelope or privacy envelope

    And such piece of paper is not a vote, should not be considered a vote, and should not be counted as a vote. Period.

    We know, from personal testimony and observation, that ballots in each of these categories have been accepted, counted and included in vote tallies. Whenever possible any piece of paper that falls into any of these categories must be defined as a ballot, not a vote, and removed from any vote count.

    We have to go back to a system where voting is done on one day, where absentee ballots are only issued to those who request them and provide identification and reasons for not being able to vote in person, where ballots can be kept for examination and/or recount if necessary, where ballots can be quickly and accurately counted by machine with running vote totals and where ballots are secure from tampering either before or after Election Day.

    When I voted, my drivers’ license was scanned when I ran the strip through the same kind of reader used to read credit cards. This brought up my photo and my registration information. My face was compared to that on the license, and then I was given a privacy envelope with a number on it, which I was asked to compare to the number on the sign-in sheet. I then removed the ballot in a cubicle, filled it out, put it back in the privacy envelope and dropped that in a secure box at the door. Ballots were then scanned by machines, and I assume the total of valid votes plus that of rejected ballots was compared to the total on the sign-in sheet. Theoretically, no ballot could be counted if it was not first removed from a privacy envelope, which had a number on it corresponding to the number on the sign-in document. It seemed like a pretty secure system, especially if poll watchers could watch ballots being removed from privacy envelopes, scanned and either accepted or put in a Reject box because they were not filled out well enough to be read by the machine.

    I go to some pretty remote areas, and I can always use a credit card. If the credit card companies can develop and distribute readers tied into a central data bank, I don’t see why election committees can’t get this done.

    I would be in favor of a Constitutional amendment making all national election rules under the same rules, as set by the federal government. I would even OK the money for the feds to buy the machines. But I would have them distributed around the country the week before the election, as close to Election Day as possible, and then I would gather them all up and store them in a secure warehouse where machines would be picked at random for examination for tampering. And I would mix the machines up so at the next national election (that is, for national office, including the president, the vice president, Senators and Representatives) no precinct could expect to get the same machines it had in the prior election. This, combined with the nearly-instant ability to compare the number of votes going through a machine with the number of licenses scanned, ought to make it harder to pack the ballot boxes with ballots slipped in in the middle of the night. And there could be cross-checking: if the number on my sign-in sheet does not match a number on a privacy envelope then my ballot was never counted.

    A Ukrainian look at our election:

    Whoever controls the media of mass communications always wins. The reason why Putin always gets his sincere 60% is that every TV channel repeats all day long that there’s no alternative to him, without him there will be chaos, thuggery in the streets, Nazism, and hey, there’s nobody better anyway. Of course, they never allow anybody better to appear on TV, so the illusion is complete.

    So here’s a recipe in a society where soft totalitarianism has triumphed. Get yourself a TV network and shoot for 75% of the vote.

    And forget the word “unfair” because nobody likes a whiny loser.

    We are living in interesting times. Not interesting like my Grandma living from horse & buggy through the space age but one of simpletons trying to steal a major election. Still have months till Georgia decides the outcome of the Senate. According to Hank Williams Jr. the “Devil went down to Georgia” supposedly to play fiddle but maybe he meant fiddle with voting results?

    Looking short and longer term I don’t see too many ruts in the road ahead. A lot depends on how many people finally woke up to what the Progressives are trying to do. In one respect a great deal found out what all them “gun safety” laws they passed around the country did to their first time purchase. Mainly, IIRC, women and those in California were some of the largest groups. Couple that with people seeing a third-world vote first-hand are complaining including honest Democrats.

    Democrats are in-fighting between factions after losing almost enough seats to completely lose the house. Senate looks safe depending on the Devil down in Georgia and if I understand correctly—Harris can’t Article 25 Biden for two years or she can only run for one more term. Joe Manchin is a flip if he wants a political future in Virginia which would help the balance of the Senate in case of more cheating.

    Cheating can be easily identified but I am sure those from DC have no such wishes. If we lose this election to a new Commander-in-Thief in lieu of our Commander-in-Chief then I will do the Obama crap all over again but with a hopeful change this time. Most Americans are pissed excluding those “educated, morally superior” asshats. Most realize they have now been screwed over by their soon to be “Masters.”

    Watch the markets respond while Trump is still in office and Day One directives by Biden (if seated) drop us back into the sewer. 2022 will be a landslide Republican as voters want a good economy back and 2024 will be the same. Seen a few but waiting to see who the fighters are. Need to fight everyday to educate voters so they understand,

    BTW, off topic, but my yard is encroaching on my yard. Need to do something soon, Before the snow,

      Hank Williams Junior or Charlie Daniels?

      BTW, I got so ticked off by the flood of texts asking for money, begging for money or even worse trying to shame me for not giving enough money I have just ignored all requests. I picked a couple of people I liked and made big donations to them, and ignored the rest.

      But today I sent a large donation to the fund for both of the Republicans fighting for their lives—and for ours—in Georgia, and I encourage you all to do the same. I try to put my money where I think it will do the most good and be most important, and a few hundred dollars to each of these people is exactly how I want my political contributions to be used. Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Rep. Doug Collins need and deserve all the help we can give them, because now they are going to be the focal point of a massive influx of Soros-type money.

      It’s not over till it’s over, and if we lose more Congressional seats it WILL be over, at least for a long long time.

    Larry Correia is a favorite author, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that he has a blog. This is his latest take on the election:

    I am more offended by how ham fisted, clumsy, and audacious the fraud to elect him is than the idea of Joe Biden being president. I think Joe Biden is a corrupt idiot, however, I think America would survive him like we’ve survived previous idiot administrations. However, what is potentially fatal for America is half the populace believing that their elections are hopelessly rigged and they’re eternally fucked. And now, however this shakes out in court, that’s exactly what half the country is going to think.

    People are pissed off, and rightfully so.

    Before I became a novelist I was an accountant. In auditing you look for red flags. That’s weird bits in the data that suggest something shifty is going on. You flag those weird things so you can delve into them further. One flag doesn’t necessarily mean there’s fraud. Weird things happen. A few flags mean stupidity or dishonesty. But a giant pile of red flags means that there’s bad shit going on and people should be in jail.

    Except for in politics, where apparently all you have to do to dismiss a bunch of red flag is be a democrat and mumble something about “fascist voter suppression” then you can do all sorts of blatant crime and get off.

    Read it. He makes some good points and is also funny, and the comments are interesting, too.

    Going to the State Department’s own website, we can see back in 2004 that our government was monitoring the Ukrainian elections and, after witnessing events that took place there, qualified the election as “rigged.” Why? Because Ukraine experienced a wave of oddities that mirror exactly what happened during the 2020 election here in America. Rion highlights the relevant part with a screenshot.

    “Bottom Line: According to our own State Dept’s assessment of corrupt foreign elections, the 2020 US elections do not meet its own standards,” tweeted Rion.

    Going to the State Department’s website we can see for ourselves that the Ukrainian elections were rife with suspicious activity including illegal use of absentee ballots, poll watchers being ejected, unrealistic voter turnouts, and more:

    Illegal Use of Absentee Ballots: According to the respected NGO “Committee of Voters of Ukraine” (CVU), massive electoral fraud was committed through the illegal use of absentee voter certificates. For example, people were caught in Dnipropetrovsk and Sumy oblasts with their pockets stuffed with blank absentee ballots that they were using to vote at multiple polling stations.

    Opposition Observers Ejected: Observers from Our Ukraine and other opposition groups were expelled from most polling stations in eastern Ukraine on Election Day. For example, in Territorial Election Commission (TEC) district number 42 in Donetsk oblast, Our Ukraine observers were kicked out of all but a few polling stations.

    North Korean-Style Turnout in the East: Turnout in the pro-Yanukovych eastern oblasts was unnaturally high. In several electoral districts, turnout for the run-off round increased by 30 to 40 percent over the first round. In Luhansk oblast, the reported turnout rate hit nearly 96 percent — a number that, to quote the OSCE, even Stalinist North Korea would envy. A similar turnout rate was reported in Donetsk oblast, where 98 percent of the votes went to hometown candidate Prime Minister Yanukovych.

    Mobile Ballot Box Fraud: In the second round of the election, the number of voters who supposedly cast ballots at home using mobile ballot boxes was double that of the first round. Much of this voting occurred without observers being present and was massively fraudulent. In Mykolayiv oblast, for example, nearly 35 percent of the oblast’s voters purportedly cast their ballots “at home.”

    Computer Data Allegedly Altered To Favor Yanukovych: There were credible reports showing that that Yanukovych supporters gained illegal access to the Central Election Commission’s computer system and illegally altered vote tabulation data being transmitted by TECs to the CEC.

    Reports of Opposition Fraud: Yanykovych’s supporters allege that Yushchenko’s supporters stuffed ballot boxes in western Ukraine. But the reports and evidence of pro-Yanukovych fraud greatly outweighed those indicated for Yushchenko.
