Project Veritas put out the proof that CNN is a mere propaganda arm of the DNC – something we’ve all known for a while. But for those a little slow on the uptake: CNN is only just now reporting that China lied about the Chinese Flu. Seriously: news you and I learned in January is now being breathlessly reported on CNN.

If your goal was to rig an election, then you would do just what the Democrats did.

Some are despairing that we’ll never get around this: that the cheat was so large and brazen in 2020, it shows we’ll never be able to win again. This is not the case: the Democrats always cheat. There has not been an election since 1824 when Democrats didn’t cheat. But cheating enough to win the Electoral College is a staggering undertaking and can only be done if you have total control over the voting districts you need. In 2020, because the GOP was caught flat-footed by the scale of Democrat cheating, the Democrats look to have pulled it off. But if they try again in 2024, the GOP will be wise to what they are doing – and, meanwhile, we have a great deal of power over the Democrat controlled areas, as we do in Florida, and can impose controls which will make cheating that less likely to succeed.

What is most important to me – and this is now yet another genuinely Conservative thing Trump has done (and, so, a Revolutionary act) – is that the fraud is very much out in the open now. The Democrats had to shove millions of ballots into the system to drag Biden over the finish line (no one really believes Joe Biden got more votes than Obama did in 2008). And Trump warned about it months in advance – he said precisely what they’d do, and then the Democrats went on an did it. The pressure will now build in areas where the GOP has control to improve processes to detect and prevent fraud.

You might have heard all sorts of worry-stories about Florida and Texas: how the Democrats were going to use voter fraud to flip both blue. Well, Trump won Texas by 631,000 votes and Florida by 371,000 votes. The Democrats did try to fraud there way through both States. They weren’t able to because the GOP got wise to their tactics and simply adjusted the rules to make cheating vastly more difficult. And, remember, even squish GOPers go along with these reforms: no GOPer wants to actually lose his or her race due to fraud. What I’m saying is, fret not! We’re not out of this game by a long shot.

The Chinese are not stupid – highest paid bureaucrat in California has ties to Chinese intelligence. One has to hand it to the Chinese: they are really good at what they do. Read the story: the man in question is an avowed patriot for China. He might be American, but he says his loyalty is to China. And yet he was given this very powerful and lucrative job. Back in Beijing, I’m sure that caused quite a lot of laughs. History is filled with rich Empires purchasing the loyalty of poor barbarian leaders…but I think that China’s purchase of America’s Ruling Class is unique. We are the richer nation, by far and yet they’ve bought us.

This is not just the ChiComs owning Joe: there is no aspect of American life where China hasn’t purchased a controlling interest. Our entertainment industry allows China to censor it. Our Tech companies fall all over themselves to help China develop tools of oppression. Social Media gleefully allows armies of Chinese bots to warp public perception of events. Politicians are paid off to dance around China’s manifest human rights violations. Chinese money flows into radical Left groups in the USA to foment hatred among Americans (they probably fund some of the more screwy right wing groups, as well). China didn’t even spend all that much money to get this: not only is our Ruling Class corrupt, it is cheap…$20 hooker stuff. What angered them all, and I think more than anything else, was that Trump was messing with this. China didn’t like it, either, and I’m sure Chinese intel helped out the DNC/MSM any way it could against Trump. Can we get around this? We’re going to have to or we’ll wind up a Chinese colony. And it will take even sterner actions than Trump was doing to make it happen: China must be pushed out of the United States.

So, you’ve started on Kings and Queen and you suddenly figure out a really cool plot development – one which will just make the story vastly more interesting and fun…and then realize it means you’re going to have to do quite a bit of ret-con on Shadow Army because of it. You smile and do it anyway – because fun is what stories are supposed to be about.

Trump is still battling away. He’s got the next week to get something so strong that the Courts and/or the State legislatures can’t ignore it. We’ll see if he can do this. To me, the obviousness of the steal grows day by day…but I’m not a Court nor am I a GOP State legislator who simply may be chicken. At all events, Biden’s best hope is to crawl into the White House with no real authority and a complete inability to permanently alter anything. Meanwhile, looming in 2022 is what may be a blowout GOP year.

And I heard that Trump is considering appointing a special counsel to look into voter fraud in 2020. To be sure, Biden could immediately fire the guy and the MSM would cheer…but for all fair minded people, that would essentially be an admission of guilt. Here is a good rundown on all the oddities of 2020’s vote.

Looks like the GOP will win IA-02 by six votes. Never doubt that you should vote. There are seven Iowa Democrats kicking themselves this morning.

The GOP – including Trump – are all-in on the Georgia Senate runoffs. I’ve been swatting at GOPers (or supposed GOPers) telling us to boycott the campaigns. That would be suicidal. I know the GOP sucks – but it’s all we got. And we can’t let the Democrats take the Senate. The end.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I got the bird in, so I’m rolling along quite nicely right now. Also got Matt working on the cover art for Battles, which is the awesome conclusion of the Mirrors series. I’m also working on the first draft of Kings and Queen, the concluding book of the two book Shadow Army series. Have I mentioned that I’ve been writing a lot?

Last night, the Supreme Court – with Gorsuch smacking down both Cuomo and Chief Justice Roberts (who naturally joined the liberal minority) – ruled in favor of religious liberty. It was ruled that you can’t put extra restrictions on religious services while letting secular activities to continue. This is simple common sense, but that it was 5-4 shows that common sense is at a premium right now.

President Trump had his hearing in Pennsylvania and it went pretty well for him. He’s also got efforts afoot in Georgia and Nevada. Bottom line: it isn’t over yet. Still a very big long shot, but the main thing right now is the fight. Concede nothing to the Democrats. If Joe manages to keep the steal, fine. We won’t like it and we won’t forget it: but we’re not going to roll over for it. The Democrats have been put on notice by Trump that the new GOP will contest every action.

I hope you all have a blessed day!

This week, the rubber hits the road as far as Team Trump’s efforts to Stop the Steal. We’ll see if they can do it. More people are coming around to my theory that Team Biden thought it in the bag (with some fraud already baked in), but then Trump’s Election Day numbers showed a near-landslide win for Trump and so they had to stop the count, manufacture/flip ballots and then hope they didn’t get caught.

Well, they got caught: the amount of fraud was so large that you can’t miss it. All that remains to be seen is if the courts will accept the evidence and act accordingly.

It looks like Nancy’s majority will be 222, maybe 223. Razor thin – and some Democrat House members are salivating at the thought of a Biden Administration cabinet post. It is very dicey for Nancy: she can’t afford to lose anyone and if a seat comes open, even if in a relatively blue area, there’s no assurance the GOP won’t pick it up in a special election. The bottom line is that both the Squad and the few moderate Democrats are going to cause her no end of trouble – the former because they want to push further left, the latter because they don’t want career suicide. You and I get to watch and laugh.

They are ramping up the ‘Rona Panic again and I think it is twofold:

  1. Get your mind off the still disputed election.
  2. Make out that it is a horror show so that St Joe of Biden can save us all.

It is irritating me no end and I’m hopeful we start to get revolt as the Danes did. The masks do not work. The lockdowns mar more than they mend. We’ve got two apparently good vaccines on the way. End this nonsense.

Joe and the Democrats want to forgive student loans. But, please note: not all of it. I think the figure they are passing around is $10,000.00. Now, why not go large and forgive it all? I mean, they are Democrats, right? The cost doesn’t matter…but they know that annulling the debt would put huge pressure on to end the loan program. They don’t want that. And they don’t want the kids to be entirely relieved of debt, either. Debtors hoping for a break are dependents…people you can pressure to do your bidding. And the Democrats don’t dare risk the program, itself, as it is merely a gigantic subsidy for the college Left.

I’ve said for a while that I want the debt annulled (tax credits for those who paid) and then cancel the program. At the very least, I think we should allow it to discharge in bankruptcy seven years after leaving college (by then, they are either making enough money to pay – and so can’t go bankrupt – or they aren’t and likely never will). The whole thing is a scam: a soak the young scheme to keep tenured radicals on the gravy train.

Ted Cruz ripped Jack Dorsey to shreds in a Senate hearing. This is fine: but unless we start to punish these totalitarian propagandists, they’ll keep right on suppressing the truth and serving up the DNC Narrative. I’ll go to my grave convinced that if the mere truth had been told this past four years, Trump would have crested 60% of the vote.

Right below “House GOP” in 2020 winners is CNN – because Fox is imploding. And, hey: if you want MSM lies, might as well go with the pros – Fox is completely amateur at it.

Noah Rothman has a bit of disdain for the notion of a “working class” GOP. I suspect this stems from Noah not knowing a lot of working class people. But it is where we have to go: if we can’t get working class people on our side, we can’t win long term. We found over the previous 20 years where reliance on upper class white suburbanites got us: nowhere. In fact, it forced us into gradual retreat as keeping upper class whites means we ceded all things Conservative except low tax rates. Meanwhile, Trump is now past 73,000,000 votes. This is 12 million more votes than Romney got in 2012. Twelve million. We play this right, and the GOP nominee in 2024 will push towards 80 million votes. So, yeah: heck with white suburbanites.

Here’s what I think happened vote fraud-wise: Team Biden thought they were good based on Vote By Mail and Early Voting numbers…but then Team Trump’s Election Day vote starting coming in like a tsunami: they pushed the panic button. They stopped counting in the deep blue cities in the swing States and simply stuffed the boxes for all they were worth. Flaw in the plan: they did so much fraud that it is easy to detect. All that remains to be seen is if Team Trump can sufficiently prove it.

In Georgia, they claimed a burst pipe forced them to stop counting. This is a lie. But, you already knew that: because after they stopped and then started, all of a sudden a huge Trump win turned into a narrow Biden victory. It was like that PA, GA, WI, MI. Trump won: Democrats stole.

‘Rona panic is being revived in a big way. I can’t but think that the desire to take attention off the election is driving this.

The Arizona SecState who is in charge of the vote count thinks Trump’s base of voters is neo-Nazis. Seventy three million neo-Nazis. Which includes record numbers of Jews, gays, blacks and, believe it or not, Muslims. Now, as she thinks we’re Nazis, how could she not cheat? After all, wouldn’t you cheat to get Hitler out of power?

Happy Election Day!

How ya feeling? Everything cool?

Today is The Day: we find out soon enough how all this went.

Vent, scream, cheer all you want. Get it off your chest!

Governor Descantis thinks they’ll be able to call Florida for Trump by 9pm Eastern.

The Experts are now saying that the Landslide which will carry Biden triumphantly into the White House will be…290 Electoral Votes. They are counting on Biden winning PA and AZ.

Not quite sure I see that.

Anyways: have fun!

Pre-Election-Mageddon Open Thread

As of this moment in time, I think that Trump has 258 locked down. That includes Florida. But I’m still leaving the upper Midwest in play, in spite of the astonishing crowds for Trump in Pennsylvania.

The bottom line is that I do expect Trump to win on Tuesday – and maybe a pretty big win. But there are so many unknowns that I think those confidently predicting final Electoral outcomes are getting a little ahead of themselves. The Democrats have their polls plus a theory that huge numbers of early voting GOPers are voting Biden. I have my confidence that the former are lies and the latter is drivel. The GOP has had large gains in voter registration in the past four years and these people signed up after Trump’s victory. They signed up for Trump. They won’t vote Biden. It think we lost 99% of the GOPers we were ever going to lose in 2016; those who voted Hillary or third party that year. Some of those voters are coming back to us: I can’t imagine a GOPer who voted Trump (other than Walsh, who is a grifter) being so disappointed in Trump that they’d vote Biden.

Trump seems geared up and happy while what I’ve seen of Biden is an angry, shouting old man. Biden can still barely draw flies while Trump gets 20,000+ to show…and that’s not counting things like the Jews for Trump rally in New York City today.

This is just not normal. The MSM is trying to ignore it or, when they do take note, downplay it. But I’m 55. I’m no spring chicken: I’ve never seen spontaneous demonstrations in favor of a political candidate in my life. I’ve doubly never seen them in places where their guy doesn’t stand a chance. We are told that people hate Trump – and he is despised by a large majority of Americans. This is the underlying theory of a Biden win. But for a guy who’s hated, he sure gets some love, doesn’t he?

I won’t even be tuning in to TV for the results – I just don’t want to put up with the mindless news actors and their paid-for “Experts”. I’ll be watching on line. I might tune into MSNBC as Trump nears 270 – but that will be for mere gloating purposes.

Now, to prepare for all eventualities: what if Trump loses? Well…I guess I’ll just keep on living and do my best to boot the Democrats in 2022 and 2024. What the heck else can we do, right? Going on a four year psychotic episode certainly doesn’t commend itself to me.

Trump lost Minnesota by about 45,000 votes in 2016: and there are some indications that this State might go his way. It didn’t even go for Reagan in 1984.

Space-X is sending four astronauts to the space station on November 14th. Why bring this up? Because Trump is returning the USA to space in a big way. Biden would probably have it back to conducting Muslim outreach again. Let’s re-elect Trump and have his name on the plaque left on the Moon when we return in 2024.

Bobulinski pretty much settles it for me: Biden is bought. But, then again, we all knew that. Now we’re just sure who the purchaser is. This should finish Biden…but the MSM is working every button to suppress the story.

Twitter’s Jack Dorsey – looking like a young, hip lunatic – testified that he doesn’t suppress dissent…but he’s against misinformation. That misinformation doesn’t include Holocaust denial.

Forget it: we know what Jack and his crew are about: censoring views which the Left hates. They just don’t hate Holocaust denial as much as they hate, say, someone pointing out Hunter Biden’s laptop. If we win – as I expect – we’re going to have to turn the anti-trust screws on these people. Either all opinions are censored, or none are.

The Anonymous guy who wrote about how Evil Wicked Bad Trump is turns out to be a nobody who wouldn’t be in a position to know. The New York Times puffed this guy up as the be-all of whistleblowers…which indicates how much credence you should lend to the MSM’s anonymous sources.

Angela Merkel is doing an all-female reboot of the Third Reich.

At this point, the divergence between the anti-Trump and pro-Trump political analysis is at such a variance that it can only be explained by one side lying. I’ve seen Experts say that Biden is cruising to a landslide while other Experts are going, “you know, other than polls, everything points to a Trump win”. I happen to agree with those thinking Trump is winning – because we have data about votes and rallies and spontaneous pro-Trump actions. We find out in six days: but if the anti-Trump guys are wrong, then it wasn’t a mistake: it was a deliberate attempt to use lies to swing the election to Biden.

Don Surber gives a good explanation for while the pollsters are so willing to lie.

It’s getting kinda exciting, isn’t it? Today, Sleepy Joe called at lid at 9am while Trump is doing rallies in Maine and New Hampshire. A CBS poll shows Biden up 3 in FL while a Trafalgar poll shows Trump up 2. The GOP seems to be crushing it in Texas early voting and doing remarkably well in early voting in Florida. The Democrats continue to show strength in early voting in Arizona while there was, I’m not kidding, a Gays for Trump rally in West Hollywood, California yesterday (it went for Hillary over Trump by 72 percentage points in 2016: this is the heart of the Blue Beast, folks: takes massive guts to even say you’re Republican there). There does appear to be more to come in the Hunter Biden scandal. How do I know? Twitter still has the NY Post’s account locked. How much of it drops before election day is the only mystery here.

The guys I follow for election analysis are uniformly confident of a Trump victory: the only difference between them is the predicted margin. They run from narrow to big wins. Who can really say? What we can say is that if you’re polling the same population and one of you gets A +3 and the other gets B +2…one of you is lying. And that is the tale of 2020, really: the mainstream polls and analysis are so entirely different from the outsider polls and analysis that either the mainstream or the outsiders are simply lying. We find out for sure on 11/3 who it is – though it should be noted that the mainstream has a track record of lying about everything. Small bit of data to indicate how things are going: this guy tracked Ohio votes in 2016 and now 2020 and says that Hillary was up 7.6 in 2016 at this point…but here in 2020, the GOP is up 4.5.

ACB is going to get confirmed to the Supreme Court Monday evening…and expect a lot of new and renewed GOP challenges to Democrat election shennanigans right after that. Senator Murkowski decided that, on the whole, she’d rather remain a Republican Senator and so will vote to confirm ACB. She must have got one heck of a blowback.

Jews for Trump: it is a thing.

We get this every four years: a Democrat saying that the GOP is doomed by demographics. In this case, it is now Gen Z which will do us in…does anyone want to tell this guy that the hippies of 1970 are now wearing MAGA hats? People change. Socialism seems a good idea to an ignorant 18 year old. Houses, kids, bills and taxes give you different priorities.

Robert Reich wants to drag all of us Trump voters before a Truth and Reconciliation Commission if Biden wins. Anyone want to tell him that he only gets to do that after his side wins a civil war?

Pennsylvania miners are still hurting, but they are voting Trump. This is likely because Trump doesn’t hold them in utter contempt.

Kanye West may be lots of things – but he’s also getting lots of things right. He’s pointing out the absolute, inhuman horror which is abortion in the black community. I have actually made a few Leftist friends of late – lost some of my older ones, as well. But it seems to me that there is a segment of the population, which might be growing, which is willing to re-establish basic sanity in our society. My view is that if anyone is coming forward with a sane proposal, from whatever background, we should listen.

Biden’s astonishing statement that he will phase out oil is causing downballot problems for Democrats. Out here, the big House race is NV03 where the Dem incumbent is locked in a furious race against her GOP challenger. The intensity of it is shown by the fact that her first series of ads were mere mudslinging at the GOPer. But here’s something she hasn’t said: “Joe Biden”. The GOPer gratefully accepted Trump’s ringing endorsement…but the Dem doesn’t seem to be too pleased to cling tight to Biden, whom the polls say is leading here. Odd, huh?

I feel good. But, it is all in God’s hands, anyways. Being that we’re now 9 days out and I’m Catholic, I’ve started a Divine Mercy novena. I think we’re going to win this – but, one cannot know the future. I think my best advice is just to have fun with it, now. All we get to do here is vote: once you’ve done that, you’re just a spectator to events.

Still writing! Now up to 70,000 words on Shadow Army, what will be the fourth book (set six years after the end of the current adventure, which finishes in the nearly complete Battles). It is still just flowing out of me: or, more accurately, it is as if Fred were sitting next to me and telling me the story. And Fred is telling me some incredible things: can’t believe what our heroes had to go through!

Our Matt went to Trump’s rally in Pennsylvania yesterday – from Trump doubter to wearing a MAGA mask…and how many such are there in America? Could be a lot: and we won’t know, and no poll will detect it, until election day. Makes for an exciting time, doesn’t it?

ACB is now at 51% approval. Trump really knocked it out of the park on this one. We’ll see how she rules, of course: but I feel confident she’ll rule on the law…and that is all we really ask of Justices. If the law says “ok”, then it’s ok…if the law says “no”, then you can’t do it. Period. The performance of ACB, in my view, now makes it much harder for Democrats to pack the Court, supposing they win on the 3rd: outside Resist nitwits, no one will see the need for it.

Toobin’s little Zoom wank neatly encapsulates what is wrong: our Rulers are creeps and they are protected. Like the rest of them, he’ll be in the doghouse for a little while, and then he’ll be rehabilitated. And, now, even more screechingly leftist than before…he’ll have to be. The Family insists after they go to the mat for you. We really need to get rid of these guys. They can’t even maintain very basic levels of not decency, but common sense.

Ace talks up the MSM circling the wagons for Toobin…but also notes that National review is going to bat for him. Why? Because Toobin might be useful in getting the NR writers a job at some point. That is all any of this ever is, folks: these people want to make money in cushy jobs and live well and the rest of us can go jump in a lake.

How bad it the Hunter Biden scandal? Well, so bad that CNN is huffily demanding that Trump stop talking about it. And so bad that there might be much more that is much worse to come. And maybe much, much worse, as Matt points out.

The bottom line is that it is pretty clear at this point that Hunter Biden was doing a pay-for-play scam with his Dad. Hunter was raking in bucks – which he then used for hookers and blow – in return for getting people together with Joe Biden…but it can’t possibly end with that. You don’t give a druggie $3.5 million for an introduction. You might throw a few grand at someone who can get your foot in the door…but you only give $3.5 million to someone who did something for you. Hunter getting $3.5 million means that something very large happened and only Joe Biden could have made it happen.

The MSM is in full black out mode on this. They know that if it gets out in full, Joe will lose 10 percentage points of support overnight. This is why they are really pressing people to vote now – to the point where they seem to be merely cannibalizing their 11/3 vote…but they have to, because it is the only way to be sure that Biden (and down ballot Democrats) get those votes. I think we can rely on it, though, that Trump will bring it up at the debate…which for a large number of people, will be the first they’ve heard of it.

Bernie Bros for Trump? Might be.

RSM is doing another of his road trips: throw him a couple bucks if you can.

The Army is developing a cannon with a 1,000 nautical mile range. Yes, you read that right: 1,000. And this is making people think we can bring back the Battleship class in the Navy. I agree – and, in fact, I think we should do so even before this super-long range gun is ready. A large ship packed with big guns and lots of missiles is a mobile strike force that can be used with devastating effect against enemy coasts (and any enemy ships fool enough to get close). With modern technology, such a ship can probably be crewed by no more sailors than a modern destroyer. And once you add the long range gun, it becomes the Queen of the Seas.
