Wednesday News Roundup: Another GOP Surrender in Wayne County, Michigan

Republicans everywhere just keep surrendering. But hey, that’s just what they do. – We’ve discussed the situation with the Maginot Line Republicans in Georgia who have not only stopped fighting for fair and valid elections in their state, but are actually throwing their lot in with the Democrats there.

Yesterday provided us with yet another example of this kind of Vichy GOP worthlessness in Wayne County, Michigan, home of Detroit, one of five cities in all of America in which Joe Biden somehow “out-performed” Hillary Clinton on November 3. There, the Wayne County Board of Canvassers, which consists of 2 Republicans and 2 Democrats, failed to certify the election results due to the fact that the number of votes counted did not come close to matching the number of people who signed into vote. Which is sort of bound to happen in a county where a 2 a.m. drop of 38,000 votes, all for a singe candidate takes place.

Republicans held firm for about 5 minutes – ok, it was really a few hours – until all the to-be-expected death threats started rolling into their social media accounts and they were accused of being racists by activists at a public meeting. In the end, they caved, which Republicans always do, based on a “compromise” in which Michigan’s utterly corrupt Democrat Secretary of State will “audit” the county’s results. Which will be exactly like putting the fox in charge of the hen house.

From a story at the Detroit Free Press:

After initially voting against certifying the election results, Monica Palmer, the Republican chair of the committee, said she would be open to certifying the election results for other jurisdictions but not Detroit.

But Chris Thomas, the former director of elections for Michigan who served as a special adviser to Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey, responded, “I think that’s absurd. I think that would make a mockery of the situation. To open the door to selective canvassing would be a huge disservice to the election process.”

Public commenters who spoke during the meeting accused the board’s Republican members of disenfranchising hundreds of thousands of voters — particularly African-American voters — in initially refusing to certify the election.

Jonathan Kinloch, the Democratic vice chair of the board accused the Republican members of playing politics rather than fulfilling their legal obligation to certify the results. “I believe politics made its presence today,” Kinloch said. “This is reckless and irresponsible action by this board,” he added. Democratic board member Allen Wilson agreed. “I’m actually appalled to be sitting here today,” he said.

[End]

Thus does Michigan fall unless the federal courts can be convinced to intervene, which is highly unlikely to happen.

For more than 50 years, the Democrat Party has been playing the long game, fighting a war of attrition against our nation’s constitution and the freedoms and institutions it guarantees. For more than 50 years, the Republican Party has refused to understand the nature of this enemy of the state and of the people, and thus continued to fight a never-ending series of losing holding actions in which it always ends up getting flanked and giving ground.

Now, they are running out of ground to give, because the ground at stake in this current controversy is the continued existence and conduct of real, democratic elections in this country, which of course constitute the very foundation of our American Republic. Republican surrender monkeys like Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and these two members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers, who choose the easy way of resolving real controversies by entering into one-sided “compromises” with Democrats only serve to hasten the Republic’s destruction.

This court loss is actually a good thing. – The Trump legal team got poured out by the Pennsylvania Supreme court on Tuesday, but that was to be expected and is actually a good thing, since it speeds the process along.

From a report in the New York Post:

Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court on Tuesday overturned an order requiring that election observers be allowed within six feet of ballot-counting operations.

In its decision, the court said state law only requires that observers be allowed “in the room” where ballots are counted and does not mandate a minimum distance, NBC News said.

The 5-2 majority opinion also found that the Philadelphia Board of Elections “did not act contrary to the law in fashioning its regulations governing the positioning of candidate representatives,” according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“Critically, we find the board’s regulations…were reasonable,” Justice Debra Todd wrote.

[End]

Thus does the PA Supreme Court rule that it is “reasonable” for Democrats to segregate GOP election observers to an area from which they are literally unable to “observe” anything at all, which sort of defies the very definition of the word “observer”, doesn’t it?

Anyway, this decision is fine and very much expected, and it now frees up the Trump team to challenge this ruling in federal courts, where the real decision-making on all of this is going to end up taking place. It is doubtful that anyone on the Trump team expect a positive outcome before the PA supremes.

Meanwhile, in other election challenge-related events…

Trump lawyer L. Lin Wood tweeted this late Tuesday night:

Given the behavior of GA election officials to this point, this would not be at all surprising, would it?

Then there was this from election security expert Russ Ramsland on Lou Dobbs’s Fox Business program:

Here is part of what Ramsland had to say:

We have been out looking mostly at Michigan. We are beginning on turning our sights on Pennsylvania and Georgia. The things you find in Michigan are amazing. There are over 3,000 precincts where the presidential votes cast compared to the estimated voters from the SOS (Secretary of State) is 99% all the way up to 350%.

Those kind of numbers don’t exist in the real world. So where did all those votes come from?

And looking at that, we’ve gone back and looked at some of these huge vote dumps that were mostly Biden’s. We call them spikes. We’ve gone back and traced the spikes. We’ve seen where they were cast, primarily in four counties. We looked at how long it took to cast those votes. And we looked at the equipment that exists at all of those locations by serial number. And the fact of the matter is we can’t see any physical way possible for some of those votes to have been in those kind of numbers because they just don’t have the equipment that can produce it in that timing.

[End]

This happened in Nevada, but the corrupt national news media pretty much ignored the story:

From the story at the Las Vegas Review Journal:

Voters might get a second chance to decide the race for Clark County Commission District C, where the number of election discrepancies surpassed the razor-thin margin of victory, county lawmakers said Monday.

During a meeting to certify election results in the county, the commission directed Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria to return early next month with options for a special election between Democratic former Secretary of State Ross Miller and Republican Las Vegas City Councilman Stavros Anthony.

Miller defeated Anthony by just 10 votes in the general election, but Gloria said Monday that his office had identified 139 unexplainable discrepancies in the contest. The discrepancies, he said, were similar to those found throughout the county, including early voting and Election Day check-in errors and issues related to tracking of the process of mail ballots.

But because the number of discrepancies is more than the margin of victory, that called into question the validity of the results, and the uncertainty is unlikely to be resolved by a recount.

[End]

Grenell has a solid point: The vote count is too unreliable to resolve a county commission race, but just fine for a presidential contest? What kind of sense does that make?

So, things are moving ahead, but here we are at hump day, and Sidney Powell still hasn’t released the Kraken as far as anyone can tell.

Not good. Time is running out, and the Kraken, if it exists, demands to be fed.

That is all.

Today’s news moves at a faster pace than ever. Whatfinger.com is the only real conservative alternative to Drudge, and deserves to become everyone’s go-to source for keeping up with all the latest events in real time.

      Defund the CIA: they’re doing to us what we did to South American countries and Iran and others since the very beginning of that rogue agency; they need to be terminated, one way or another, with extreme prejudice if necessary.

    It called being a patriot and actually fighting for this country and doing what is right, more people should try it. Considering how these days you can get cancelled for a tweet I think DB does a decent job of putting his life on the line as you would say.

    The flood of corruption and fraud in this election is intended to be so overwhelming, and the process of trying to correct and overcome it so laborious, unnerving, and bewildering, that people will just throw up their hands and let the country devolve into the Dems’ coveted dystopia. Most have no clue where that will lead; those who do, believe they somehow will be high up on the pyramid of privilege.

    As a MI resident, I too am outraged that the Rs caved on the certification vote. Initially, it was the fact that a simple marxist tongue lashing was all it took. But the death threats, that’s another level. We would all like to believe that we will stand firm on our convictions, but everyone has a line, visible or not. Not many of us have had to endure anything like that in our lives, and it’s easy to say what we think we would do. Detroit has a history of corruption, and some of it is violent. Everyone thinks that it doesn’t happen in modern times, but its there.

    The tragedy is of course the marxist Dems here move forward. They are good at the intimidation game. Who knows what legal recourse Trump has in MI, maybe none. It’s getting too much to follow.

    Overall it seems that we are lurching towards socialism. We (conservatives) seem to be getting pushed farther and farther back. Where’s the line, the point of no return, the spark that determines we all say “No more” ?

    Jonesy, if people don’t say enough is enough when they have the power and position to do so and flake. Do you think people will do soAfter they’ve already sat back and happened? I personally would hope so, but oppertunities like MI need to be taken advantage of so the follow up isnt necessary.

    What I mean is, out here in WA state. Outrage over lockdowns and protest against it is too late when there was opportunity to vote out Gov Inslee. I’m not saying conservatives like myself shouldnt be speaking up. But we should have done more prior to influence the outcome of the gov race. In our case we faced an uphill battle but MI had i right in front of them then changed opinion.

    No surprise that Detroit rules MI and desperately NEEDS a DEM BAILOUT – open the money spigots to pay the underfunded City/State corrupt overpromised & undeserved PENSIONS . . . without which, otherwise, Detroit becomes a fetid BLOT of Sixth Extinction, along with Baltimore, DC, Philly, Chi, MSP, NYC, NJ etc. Of course no amount of BAILOUT will change this course, just stall, redistribute and bring down the rats who fled the sinking ships of industrial age American corruption, carpetbaggers to exploit the SunBelt – itself so eager to be pillaged for profit. So be it. Water always finds its own level.

    P.s. I respect, admire, appreciate Trump for putting a ton of positive uplifting energy into the reelection campaign – so conspicuously more heart and soul into communicating with the populace than the “apparent” winner of this “fair” election. I long believed that Trump has NO NEED to run this country and certainly would NOT WANT to be at the helm when the SHIP SINKS. He will manage just fine as the rest of us pay more taxes, spending shrinks, economy contracts, gas prices rises, spending shrinks, economy contracts. Business like Solyndra will make off like bandits. Spending shrinks, Economy contracts. Am seeing headlines about dark and gloomy economy ahead.

      The dark and gloomy headlines are just more propaganda to push you into the arms of the communist demoncrats, pleading for them to save you from their dystopian world.

    Tucker Carlson is wrong. This is not a censorship cartel. This is a conspirarcy to over throw the election, a coup and the Pesident needs to wake up and protect the American government and the American people who voted for him.

    The death of the Republican Party is nigh. The RINOs are going to either flip demoncrat or retire. The remainder who still honor their oath and their constituents will absorbed into a new
    party comprised of conservatives, the honest liberals formerly known as democrats, and all the other myriad voting blocs that have come to realize that they have been being played by both parties for some time now. Trump has broken the backs of both, exposed the press and their dirty cabal. Let us pray that he prevails in his fight.
