Just a reminder that this man literally created, supplied and armed ISIS and authorized thousands of drone killings in the Middle East. Liberals think he’s wonderful:
“Our adversaries have seen us weakened, not just as a consequence of this election, but over the last several years. We have these cleavages in the body politic that they're convinced they can exploit,” former President Obama tells Scott Pelley. https://t.co/MOKUF5BliC pic.twitter.com/OTZJnzj9eH

This seems like a big deal:
JUST IN: Moderna Announces 94.5% Efficacy in Phase Three Trial of Covid-19 Vaccine https://t.co/9Dq6MKkS0r
— Mediaite (@Mediaite) November 16, 2020
Would have been good to know about this before the elections, dudes. But hey, I’m sure that it’s just a coincidence that this comes out 13 days after.
From the Mediaite Story:
Biotechnology firm Moderna has announced that their experimental vaccine is showing a very high level of effectiveness for protecting people from the coronavirus. This news follows a similar announcement from Pfizer about their Covid-19 vaccine, but the Moderna vaccine is now expected to remain stable at standard refrigerator temperatures of 2° to 8°C (36° to 46°F) for 30 days, up from the previous estimate of 7 days.
The company announced that their early data analysis shows their vaccine has a 94.5 percent effectiveness against Covid-19. CNN reports that Moderna received its results on Sunday while on call with the Data Safety and Monitoring Board, which has been overseeing their clinical data.
“It’s extremely good news. If you look at the data, the numbers speak for themselves,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said in a response gathered by Washington Post. “I describe myself as a realist, but I’m fundamentally a cautious optimist. I felt we’d likely get something less than this. … I said certainly a 90-plus-percent effective vaccine is possible, but I wasn’t counting on it.”
As I discuss elsewhere this morning, we can have a dozen effective vaccines and it won’t make a damn bit of difference to the Little Menace to Society, Anthony Fauci. He’s determined to keep us all wearing masks and pretending that social distancing works forever – the new normal in which he is the ultimate arbiter of how the government continues controlling our lives. Read it.
That’s why the Trump challenges that will be moving forward in the courts this week are so crucial. – After a weekend of pure hype from Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani, Lin Wood, Jenna Ellis and Sidney Powell, the cases they have filed in state and federal courts challenging the election results in a half dozen states will begin being heard this week. While the need for a PR assault in an effort such as this is certainly understandable, this weekend was a case of too much in too short a time.
Worse, the rhetoric coming from these lawyers doesn’t really do much to increase confidence that they are truly prepared to make convincing cases in court. Giuliani in particular places almost all of his emphasis on witness testimony providing “proof” that elections were stolen using the Dominion systems. But if witness testimony is all they have, they are wasting their and the court’s time.
If these lawyers are not able to present cases filled with forensic proof that the election was indeed manipulated and demonstrate clearly how it all worked, then these lawsuits aren’t going to change a thing. They are going to be asking judges to put their lives and the remainder of their careers in personal jeopardy by issuing decisions that change the media-promoted outcomes in half a dozen states. No judge is going to be willing to do that based on the testimony of one or a thousand individuals.
Vague allegations that Dominion was created by Hugo Chavez and is partly-owned by China will not be enough: They must be able to show – clearly and unambiguously – that this system was manipulated in a way that literally changed the outcomes in states where the official counts show Biden ahead by 150,000 votes (Michigan), 60,000 votes (Pennsylvania) and 15,000 votes (Georgia).
That’s a very tall order, and the Trump legal team has only had slightly less than two weeks to put these cases together. None of this is to doubt the validity of the allegations that are being made: This election was stolen without any real question at all. But proving that in court in such a way that a judge or panel of judges are compelled to issue a radical, precedent-setting remedy – which is what they would be – is a different thing entirely.
The best advice for all of us is to hope for the best, and prepare for the worst.
The fake news never ends. – After the Trump team amended is complaint in Pennsylvania for clarity, striking one of several paragraphs that detail the fact that GOP election observers were denied access to vote counts in Philadelphia and other Democrat-run cities, the corrupt news media jointly ran with a fake story that the complaint had been dropped.
This story is completely erroneous. Our lawsuit in Pennsylvania absolutely still makes an issue of the 682,479 mail-in and absentee ballots that were counted in secret.
To write that we had scrapped that argument requires not reading the amended complaint. https://t.co/zShPcOjQH4

But don’t expect any corrections from the WaPo or New York Times or CNN or MSNBC or any of the myriad other fake news outlets who pushed that false story. Because faking the news is what they do and who they are. It’s in their DNA.
Meanwhile, here’s another very plausible story about massive election fraud helping Joe Biden that none of the corrupt national outlets are covering, because of course they aren’t.
From the story at The Buffalo Chronicle:
The innermost circles of the American mafia are abuzz. The Boss of the Philly mob — ‘Skinny Joey’ Merlino — is taking a victory strut, hobnobbing around the highest echelons of old-time mafia folk, mostly in Florida, describing what may have been the heist of the century: the 2020 presidential election.
The feat is drawing praise from far-flung corners of the Italian American business community, which sees the thanks of a grateful administration as key to the revival of the community’s political influence.
But an associate says that Merlino might just be willing to flip on Joe Biden and the Pennsylvania political operatives who ordered up some 300,000 election ballots marked for Biden. The source alleges that Merlino and a lean team of associates manufactured those ballots at a rate of $10 per ballot — a whopping $3 million for three days of work. They were then packaged into non-descript cardboard boxes and dropped off outside the Philadelphia Convention Center.
Sources who spoke to The Chronicle on the condition of anonymity say that Merlino picked up those ballots from two private households where a trusted handful of associates were busily marking ballots with Sharpie markers. They were paid more than $1,000 per hour, often producing thousands of ballots every hour for more than 60 nearly-consecutive hours.
This is, of course, the kind of old-fashioned voter fraud that Democrats have been practicing in big inner-cities from time immemorial. It’s exactly the kind of mob operation that got John F. Kennedy elected in 1960, the kind that got Lyndon Johnson elected to the U.S. senate in 1948, albeit on a much smaller scale. Should Merlino flip, it would be the ultimate irony, given that Biden won his first race for U.S. Senator in 1972 with the voter fraud help of the Philly mob and the Teamsters Union.
We still have a long way to go here, folks. Just be patient.
That is all.
