BREAKING: Attorney General William Barr Has Resigned

Hot off the ol’ presses: William Barr has resigned his post as one of the nation’s worst Attorneys General in its history, and will now move on to graze in other swampy pastures, effective December 23. Deputy AG Jeff Rosen will step in to serve as Acting Attorney General:

Here is Barr’s Letter of Resignation:

Barr is a sad story of failure for this administration and for this country. Had he been willing to really go after the Deep State seditionists who executed a four-year-long coup d’etat throughout President Trump’s first term in office, he could have gone down as a real American hero. As it is, he will be remembered as just another Deep State functionary.

It should be assumed that, despite the amicable letter of resignation and the President’s flowery-worded tweets, Barr was actually fired today.

Good riddance.

That is all.

RINO Georgia Sec. State Announces Signature Audit for Cobb County

Brad Raffensperger, the corrupt RINO secretary of state for Georgia – and thus, the state’s chief elections official – announced on Monday that he is ordering a signature audit for Cobb County, home to Marietta, where severe election irregularities occurred during the general election.

Raffensperger, in his efforts to maintain the illusion of actually doing his job, claims that the audit comes in response to a “specific allegation” that Cobb County officials did not properly follow the signature verification requirements for mail-in ballots on and in the days following Election Day.

From a story at the Augusta Chronicle:

Georgia officials will conduct a signature-match audit of absentee ballot envelopes in Cobb County to promote faith in the election system ahead of next month’s U.S. Senate runoff elections, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced on Monday.

The audit comes in response to a “specific allegation” the mail-in signature verification process was not followed properly in Cobb for the Nov. 3 general election, Raffensperger said at a news conference. He did not give details on the allegation.

Re-checking the envelope signatures in Cobb also aims to boost confidence in the integrity of the high-stakes Senate runoffs on Jan. 5 amid fraud claims from President Donald Trump and his allies that have injected doubt into Georgia’s election system, Raffensperger said.

“We stand ready to answer each and every question out there,” Raffensperger said. “Every Georgian should have faith in our elections.”

[End]

Ok, well, if Raffensperger really wants to answer each and every question out there, why is he just now ordering this audit, and why just for a single county, when Raffensperger’s office has been literally inundated not just with complaints, but lawsuits about similar irregularities taking place across the entire state since Election Day?

Why not do it in Fulton County, home to Atlanta, where we were treated to this scene of election officials staying until the wee hours of the morning and pulling cases filled with thousands of mail-in ballots out from under desks:

Raffensperger apparently expects you all to believe that that’s all just fine, not a problem at all.

Then there’s the issue of what exactly the corrupt Sec. State really means when he claims his team will conduct a “signature audit.” After all, he initially claimed that the sham recount he ordered right after Election Day would include both a recanvassing and a signature audit when in reality none of that took place.

And of this is a true signature audit, will it include all of the steps necessary to make it truly meaningful? As Tea Party co-founder Jenny Beth Martin points out, a real signature audit requires no fewer than three steps to be truly valid:

Given Raffensperger’s sorry performance to date, we can be sure that his plan does not include all of those steps, and may well not even include any one of them.

What has taken place in Georgia has been a true national travesty, carried out every step of the way not only by Democrats, but by fake Republicans like Raffensperger and his fellow RINO, Governor Brian Kemp. Despite Raffensperger’s self-serving announcement of this “signature audit,” there is no reason at all to believe that that is what will actually take place.

That is all.

Concede? Surrender? Never.

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

After the US Supreme Court refused to hear the Texas case citing a “lack of standing,” a few more Republicans are calling for Trump to concede. Some are even people we know and love.

Apart from corrupt Republicans who are part of a larger “deep-state” than we ever could have imagined, there is another group who rely heavily on their vast and past experience in politics. They think of this election as just another pendulum swing and we’ll “get ’em next time.”

They focus on sportsmanship, statesmanship and appearances.  Perhaps noble in other circumstances, it makes no sense on a political chess board that is unlike any this country has ever seen before. Our opponents have crossed the Rubicon and intend to take this country by force. If they succeed, there won’t be a “next time.”  This is for all the marbles.

John Andrews, is a former President of the Colorado Senate and a man I respect very much.  He recently posted a piece entitled, Twilight for Trump: Knowing when to Fold ’em.

Andrews’ calls it a “pleasant and touching little dream” that “for the good of the country and his own place in history” that Trump should “do the right thing” and concede the election.

How could it possibly be good for the country to allow wholesale election fraud to stand, and continue the Left’s destruction of every one of our precious Bill of Rights on their final march to a one-world, socialist/communist government?  They’ve made it clear that they hate America because it has stood in the way of this. Donald Trump has boldly stood in the way of this.

As surely as I’ve ever believed anything, I believe that it is for the supreme good of the country that the truth about corruption, collusion and sedition be revealed to the public wherever it leads. Politicians have been lying about their true intentions for decades. Un-elected bureaucrats have had immense power to which they were not entitled. Those who have engaged in crimes against America and its citizens must be held accountable. Our country cannot and will not survive if they are not.

In some respects, these times are more dire than WWII because we are being attacked from within and by our fellow Americans. This is what our heroic fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers gave their lives to protect and preserve. Knowing and fully understanding that is absolutely what is best for the country.

Even after watching Trump for more than four years it is fascinating how many people continue to misread him. He still uses that to his advantage.

The Left continues to smear him as an egomaniac but once again that’s a projection. Sadly,  some conservatives believe it. Trump is not contesting this fraudulent election out of ego. He knows he is the last impediment to their plan to impose communism in America. Think that’s a conspiracy theory?  Look carefully at 2020.

November 3, 2020 was always about more than Donald Trump and he has shown again and again that he knows it. Unfortunately, there are still some well-meaning people who do not.

“This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.”

–Winston Churchill

Monday News Roundup: Trump, Flynn and Powell Undeterred by Today’s Electoral College Vote

For those concerned that media reports of President Trump being about ready to give up his fight to overturn the obviously fraudulent election results might be true, the President issued this tweet Sunday morning:

So buckle up – we still have weeks to go.

The President also summarized the reason for the 7-2 decision by the Supreme Court in refusing to hear the Texas lawsuit challenging the clearly illegals voting process changes implemented this year in PA, WI, MI and GA:

Bad for the country, indeed. With that decision and today’s vote by the Electoral College, the wheels of the process for certifying the election grind inexorably forward as the elder-abusing handlers of China Joe Potato Head Biden prepare to take over the executive branch of government come January 20.

Joe Potato Head will read a speech prepared by those handlers to the nation in the wake of that vote tonight, an event that all the TV networks are happily dedicating their air time to covering, in contrast to their consistent refusal to air presidential speeches over the past four years. Because, when the media is corrupt and fake, that’s what they do. Plus, nobody watched their regular programming anymore anyway, so why not?

ABC is so eager to provide glowing and positive coverage for Biden’s handlers that it even published a fawning profile piece on them this morning.

Here’s an excerpt from that ball of fluffery:

But aides are pointing to Biden’s strong approval numbers, tallying a record 81 million votes and an electorate worn by the pandemic in their attempt to nudge Republicans to cooperate. Mike Donilon, a senior adviser to Biden, said the American electorate is looking for Democrats and Republicans to get in sync.

“The agenda that the president-elect is putting forward is very much at the forefront of what people want in their lives,” Donilon said. “So, I think the case is going to be that it’s going to be in the interest of the country, it’s going to be in their own self-interest to get on board and not to get in the way.”

[End]

So, there you have it. The elder-abusing freaks who have been pointing Biden at his TelePrompter and bringing him his daily tapioca pudding for the past year and a half have now become the literal focal point for a corrupt media establishment that is afraid to ask questions directly of the candidate himself for fear of what he might just blurt out into the public domain.

General Mike Flynn is now free to talk, and boy is he talking. – General Flynn, freed finally from the authoritarian grasp of corrupt federal judge Emmet Sullivan, gave an interview to Maria Bartiromo Sunday morning. During the interview, the General told Bartiromo that “we have conclusive evidence of foreign interference in our election,” and stated his belief that the President should invoke the provisions of his 2018 executive order that contemplates the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate:

Flynn went onto state that “We’ve never witnessed anything like this in the history of this country. And it’s got to be stopped right now or there will never be a free and fair election.”

Flynn’s right, and Sidney Powell also advocated for invoking that executive order in an interview over the weekend.

Watch:

“Well, given the level of foreign interference we can demonstrate, and the country has evidence of in our filings of foreign interference in the election, it is more than sufficient to trigger the President’s executive order from 2018. That gives him all kinds of power, to do everything from seize assets, to freeze things, demand the impoundment of the machines. I think, under the emergency powers, he could even appoint a special prosecutor to look into this, which is exactly what needs to happen.

“Every voting machine in the country should be impounded right now. There’s frankly more than enough criminal probable cause to justify that. For anybody who’s willing to address the law and the facts, purely on the basis of truth, and not politics or corporate greed or global wealth.”

General Flynn and Sidney Powell are serious people, folks. They don’t just talk to hear the sound of their own voices.

And of course, finding a judge, any judge, who is “willing to address the law and the facts, purely on the basis of truth, and not politics or corporate greed or global wealth” has proven to be an extraordinarily difficult, seemingly impossible task.

But Sidney Powell is still working it. – She hasn’t had an success in court with her “kraken” lawsuits, but the indefatigable attorney from Dallas is still working the process. On Saturday, she filed new lawsuits in PA, WI, MI and GA, and also filed an emergency request for immediate action by the U.S. Supreme Court (USSC).

Her emergency request asks the Supremes to “order officials in Georgia, Michigan, and Arizona to immediately de-certify their 2020 election results and to prevent the states’ presidential electors from casting votes in the electoral college. It also appears that Powell and her team are preparing a request for a writ of certiorari for an immediate hearing of her case before the USSC.

From a story at the Epoch Times:

Powell’s team argues that the lawsuits are part of an effort to “expose and reverse an unprecedent multi-state conspiracy to steal the 2020 General Election.” Plaintiffs have been characterized as “conspiracy theorists” by Democrat politicians and activists who are ignoring the many eyewitnesses, whistleblowers, and expert witnesses who are coming forward with accounts of potential fraud and other evidence, the lawyers argue.

“The 2020 General Election was tainted by unconstitutional election fraud on a scale that has never been seen before—at least not in America,” the lawyers allege.

Hundreds of thousands if not millions of illegal, fraudulent, ineligible, or purely fictitious ballots were cast for Biden (along with hundreds of thousands of Trump votes that were intentionally destroyed, lost or switched to Biden), changing the outcome from a Biden loss to a Biden ‘win,’” the filing alleges.

[End]

Again, all of that is obviously true, but the challenge is finding a judge or group of judges who are willing to actually hear the case and rule on the real evidence and merits, instead of resorting to technicalities as the USSC did in the Texas case.

It’s a hell of a challenge.

That is all.

The Antifa/BLM Armed Insurrection Erupts in Washington, DC Yet Again

Democrat mayors around the country are intentionally sowing the seeds of chaos by preventing their police departments from using all means necessary to engage with growing armies of Antifa and BLM street thugs. Take a look at this video clip from Washington, DC yesterday, where Antifa/BLM thugs assaulted Trump supporters following a pro-Trump rally:

So, the BLM/Antifa thugs showed up with shields, knives, clubs and body armor. Meanwhile, the DC police rode in on their cute bicycles with their cute polystyrene helmets and their cute pepper spray and were hamstrung by the Mayor, Marxist Democrat Muriel Bowser, with rules of engagement that prevent them from using anything but the pepper spray and their hands to try to control the rioters.

Yeah, that’s not gonna work. And, guess what: That’s the plan. That’s the intention of these Marxist Democrat mayors. They don’t want it to work. They want the violence and looting and burning to continue and to grow. If that was not their desire, they would authorize their police to engage a line of armored thugs like this one with full force: Billy clubs, rubber bullets, water cannons, tear gas, whatever it takes to disperse them and discourage any thought of continuing the chaos.

This is happening in Democrat-run cities all over the country, folks. In Portland, thugs just like these have been blithely allowed by local officials to establish another so-called “autonomous zone” similar to the CHAZ/CHOP fiasco that existed for a couple of months in Seattle over the summer. Government buildings have been taken over, private businesses have been seized and looted and destroyed, people have been run out of their homes, all because the local mayor is a Marxist nitwit who not only approves but enables the activities of Antifa and BLM thugs.

This is an area in which President Trump has really been negligent, and it is difficult to explain why. He should have long ago declared a national emergency over the activities of Antifa and used the Insurrection Act to enable the use of the National Guard to restore order in these cities where Democrat local officials refuse to do so. Because that’s what this is: It’s an armed insurrection by terrorist groups whose goal is the destruction of the American Republic.

They’ve already killed several people in places like Seattle and Provo, Utah, and last night a Trump supporter in DC was stabbed by an Antifa thug:

All of this goes back to the Founders’ presumption that American voters would elect fellow Americans of good faith who love their country to lead them. That has all broken down over the past 30 years and what we see happening on the streets of our major, Democrat-run cities is the result.

We have an armed insurrection by a pair of domestic terrorist groups, aided and abetted by the Democrat Party and the corrupt national news media, happening in this country. If you think it’s all going to stop when China Joe Potato Head Biden is sworn in on January 20, you have no understanding at all of what these terrorists are really all about.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: China Joe Biden Just Keeps Saying the Quiet Parts out Loud

The Texas case got thrown out late on Friday. – The lawsuit brought before the Supreme Court by Texas AG Ken Paxton and 17 other state AGs was rejected by 7 of the 9 members of the Court late on Friday. I discuss the implications of that in a separate story this morning.

We will miss having Tulsi Gabbard in congress. – Yes, she’s a Democrat and yes, I don’t agree with her on all that much, but this is a woman of great courage and conviction who is not afraid to stray from the Democrat Party’s daily script.

On Friday, Cong. Gabbard – who sadly did not run for re-election this year – introduced legislation that would ban biological males from participating in women’s sports nationwide. Sadly for girl and women athletes, this is something that has been allowed in an increasing number of school districts and colleges across the country. Gabbard’s bill is a clear effort to protect the rights of actual, genetic women and their right to compete against human beings who possess similar genetic makeup, and not against biological males who only “identify” as women.

Naturally, Gabbard has been smeared by those on the left. This tweet by The Hill is sadly typical of the absurd slant the corrupt media has put on the story:

Thus, in the eyes of the insane left and its media toadies, this effort to protect the rights of girls and women – which the political left formerly supported – now becomes an “anti-transgender” bill. Up is down, black is white, right is wrong. That is the American left today.

So long, congresswoman. Real, thinking Americans are sad to see you go.

He’s against de-funding the police before he plans to be for it. – China Joe Potato Head Biden got caught on tape saying the quiet part out loud again. In a recording of a virtual event with Democrat Party activists, Biden can be heard advising them all to stop saying “de-fund the police,” but only until after the January 5 Georgia senatorial runoff elections have been held. After that, hey, no problemo, apparently.

Biden is also heard on the recording admitting that President Trump “beat the hell out of us all over the country” despite his own claims to be the legitimate president-elect.  Biden supporters will claim this was just another example of their declining, elderly placeholder resorting to hyperbole, but anyone paying real attention will know it’s just another example of him saying the quiet part out loud.

From a story at PJMedia:

In a recording leaked to The Intercept, former Vice President Biden appeared to blame the “defund the police” movement for the Democrats’ shellacking down-ballot in the 2020 elections, and urged liberal civil rights leaders not to put public pressure on his incoming administration regarding police reform until after the Georgia Senate runoff elections in January.

“I also don’t think we should get too far ahead ourselves on dealing with police reform in that, because they’ve already labeled as being ‘defund the police’ anything we put forward in terms of the organizational structure to change policing — which I promise you, will occur. Promise you.”

Biden can be heard telling left-wing civil rights leaders in the recording, “Just think to yourself and give me advice whether we should do that before January 5, because that’s how they beat the living hell out of us across the country… I just raise it with you to think about. How much do we push between now and January 5—we need those two seats— about police reform? But I guarantee you there will be a full-blown commission. I guarantee you it’s a major, major, major element…we can go very far.”

Successful efforts to defund the police at the local have resulted in disasters nationwide. But Joe Biden himself has publicly expressed support for defunding the police. During an interview with activist Ady Barkan, Biden said, “Yes, absolutely,” when asked if they both could agree that “we can redirect some of the [police] funding?”

[End]

Equally of interest, China Joe then goes on to lecture the radical leftists who make up the vast majority of the Democrat voter base today on the limits of executive authority:

So there’s some things that I’m going to be able to do by executive order. I’m not going to hesitate to do it, but what I’m not going to do is I’m not going to do what used to — Vanita [Gupta], you probably used to get angry with me during the debates, when you’d have some of the people you were supporting saying, ‘On Day 1, I’m gonna have an executive order to do this!’ Not within the constitutional authority. I am not going to violate the Constitution. Executive authority that my progressive friends talk about is way beyond the bounds. And as one of you said, maybe it was you, Reverend Al [Sharpton], whether it’s far left or far right, there is a Constitution. It’s our only hope. Our only hope and the way to deal with it is, where I have executive authority, I will use it to undo every single damn thing this guy has done by executive authority, but I’m not going to exercise executive authority where it’s a question, where I can come along and say, ‘I can do away with assault weapons.’ There’s no executive authority to do away that. And no one has fought harder to get rid of assault weapons than me, me, but you can’t do it by executive order. We do that, next guy comes along and says, Well, guess what? By executive order, I guess everybody can have machine guns again. So we gotta be careful.

[End]

Boy, oh, boy. That is not going to sit well with the Bernie Sanders and AOC’s of the world. If he does ultimately assume the presidency, China Joe is going to find that his honeymoon lasts about 15 seconds before all hell starts to come at him from members of his own party.

Hey, he can’t do any worse than Comrade De Blasio. – Looks like Andrew Yang is probably going to run for Mayor of New York next year.

From the story at JustTheNews:

Entrepreneur and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang is making plans to run for New York City mayor.

Yang, whose presidential campaign centered on a universal basic income for every American, has been telling city leaders that he intends to run in next year’s election, according to The New York Times.

He is not expected to announce his bid until at least next month and has already met with a top City Council member, the newspaper reports. Yang declined Thursday to comment to The Times about the purported bid.

[End]

Hey, it’s New York City, where a guy like Andrew Yang is actually considered to be a “moderate.” If he does end up running, he would almost certainly be the least repugnant, anti-American radical among the Democrat candidates in the field. We should all wish him the best of luck in his pursuit.

That is all.

No, It’s Not Time For President Trump to Stop

This decision is not what the media is saying it was. – As was always likely, the U.S. Supreme Court declined late on Friday to hear the case filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton challenging the election results in four states in which he does not serve or live: Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia.

The corrupt news media is reporting this result as if the Court ruled on the merits of the constitutional argument made by Paxton, which is that these four states clearly violated the Electors clause of that document by allowing changes to voting procedures to be made by gubernatorial and/or judicial fiat, rather than by their state legislatures, as the constitution clearly requires.  But the truth is that the Court did not rule on that aspect at all.

What the Court did rule was that Paxton has no standing to bring the case because he lives in Texas and not one of the four states being sued, saying that “we can only deal with fraud claims brought by the people from places where it actually happened.” While the Texas lawsuit did have the support of 17 other state AGs, none of those men and women happened to be from the states that were the subject of the lawuit.

Thus, even though the clearly fraudulent results in those four states swung the election to China Joe Potato Head Biden and his designated successor Kamala Harris, thus disenfranchising the 75 million Americans who legally voted for President Trump, the Supremes ruled that the AGs representing many millions of those Americans have no standing to bring the case.

That’s what actually happened.

Prepare for a parade of surrender monkeys this weekend. – The public airwaves and cable news channels will be filled with them. You can bet that the Mitt Romneys and Ben Sassy Sasses and Lamar Alexanders and all the slobs at the Lincoln Project and the Bullwark have had their agents hitting speed dial in desperate efforts to get George Stephanopoulous or Chris Wallace or Fake Jake Tapper or that little human weasel who hosts Meet the Press to give them 5 minutes on their Sunday morning talk shows so they call claim to be “right” about something or other and pontificate that it is time for Donald Trump to give up. Why, that would be all for the good of the country, don’t you know.

But would it really be “for the good of the country” for the President who knows this was a stolen election to just toss up his hands and ride off into the sunset? Would it really be “for the good of the country” to turn the presidency over to an elderly, declining lifelong circus clown who doesn’t know where he is half the time? Would it really be “for the good of the country” to surrender the country to the subjects of this meme that made its way across social media on Friday?:

Image may contain: one or more people, text that says 'DEC.21/DEC.28.2020 PERSON the YEAR TIME XIJINPING, JOE BIDEN KAMALA HARRIS CHANGING ING AMERICA'S STORY'

The only reasons that meme is funny is because so many people think it is actually what Time really did with its cover this week, and that the truth is that Time should have done that with its cover this week.

Is it really, truly in the best interests of the country to turn the presidency over to a guy who is so clearly and unambiguously compromised by the communist Chinese government? That’s the opinion that even Byron York, a defender of the President, stated in a late update to his Friday Daily Memo:

“On Friday evening, the Supreme Court rejected the president’s last big challenge, the lawsuit filed by the state of Texas against Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. There was no way in the world the court, at the behest of one state, would throw out election results in four other states. There was no basis on which to do it, it was not called for by the Constitution, and it would have set a terrible precedent that would surely plague our politics in years to come. In the end, the justices decided not to take the case at all. Only two, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, said the court should have taken the case, but even they said they “would not grant other relief” and expressed “no view on any other issue.” With that, Trump’s hope of the nation’s highest court stopping certification of the election died.”

Byron York is not a disloyal fake Republican, unlike the clowns at the Lincoln Project and the Bullwark. He’s a smart guy, an actual conservative who generally exercises good judgment.

In this case, though, his judgment is wrong. This is not the time to give in to the surrender monkey faction of the GOP, and you can be sure President Trump is not about to do that.

Here’s what he said on his Twitter feed last night:

“A Rigged Election, fight on!”

Surrender is just not a part of Donald Trump’s personality, and he won’t be doing that today or any other day until all of his options have been exhausted.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Cotton Demands Special Counsel and China Apparently Owns MIT

Senator Cotton makes a really strong point. – Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton urged Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to handle the investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes, money laundering and other influence peddling activities around the world. Cotton notes that the circumstances create a clear and blatant conflict of interest where the Big Guy, China Joe Potato Head Biden is concerned, and that conflict of interest cries out for the appointment of a special counsel related to the case.

From a piece at JustTheNews:

“I know the Biden campaign released details of a tax fraud investigation in Wilmington,” said Cotton during the Fox News interview. “I think that was just to show maybe the least damaging part of the investigation.”

“There’s allegations of securities fraud and money laundering related to Hunter Biden’s Chinese businesses, a crooked hospital deal with Jim Biden, Joe Biden’s brother, out in western Pennsylvania. These investigations span multiple jurisdictions,” Cotton said, remarking that in the event that Joe Biden becomes the nation’s next president, “those prosecutors are in line to be fired next month. If there were ever circumstances that create a conflict of interest and called for a special counsel, I think those circumstances are present here.”

The Arkansas Republican said that the Biden family has leveraged Joe Biden’s government posts for their benefit in the past and would continue to do so if Biden serves as president.

“Look, the Biden family has been trading on Joe Biden’s public office for 50 years. Valerie Biden Owens, his sister, and Jim Biden, his brother, and Hunter Biden his son,” he said. “Do we really think that that will change if Joe Biden becomes president, the highest office in the land?”

[End]

Right now, the investigation is being handled out of the U.S. Attorney’s office in Delaware. Joe Potato Head Biden will no doubt follow the example of Bill Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self and immediately fire all U.S. attorneys and replace them with leftist cronies whose first task will be to halt any potentially damaging investigations and cover them all up. The creation of a special counsel’s office would make it much more difficult, both politically and procedurally, for a Biden-appointed attorney general to come into office and sweep it all under the rug.

Sen. Cotton is absolutely correct in this instance, as he generally tends to be. But will Barr do the right thing related to this clear case of the Biden family peddling its influence around the world? His record thus far is certainly not encouraging.

After all, Byron York revealed yesterday that this investigation began way back in 2018, and was already ongoing when Barr took office. He has been fully aware of it since his first day on the job and chose to keep it all quiet for the last 21 months despite his knowledge that its existence was something American voters should know about given that Biden was the Democrat Party nominee for president.

I’m not advocating that Barr should have revealed the investigation as an October surprise. But Barr should have made the investigation public during the Democrat nominating process so that Democrat primary voters would be aware of the enormous ethical problem China Joe would create for their party. By withholding its existence and the strong evidence against not just Hunter but the entire Biden family, Barr heinously influenced the outcome of the general election.

Why, it’s almost as if Barr wanted Joe Potato Head to win. Go figure.

Meanwhile, on the election challenge front… – On Thursday 106 GOP members of the U.S. House of Representaives filed an Amicus brief of their own in support of the Texas lawsuit that challenges the clear constitutional violations that took place prior to the election in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia:

24 members of the Pennsylvania Senate and 68 members of the PA House did the same thing:

The Justice Foundation and the Amistad Project joined in the fun:

The suit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton certainly has a great deal of support.

But of course, not everyone is on board, including not a single Democrat or a single individual in the nation’s corrupt news media. Then there is RINO Nebraska Senator Ben Sassy Sasse, who yesterday snidely remarked (because everything he says is a snide remark) that Paxton’s lawsuit has other motivations.

From a story at Newsweek:

Senator Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, suggested on Thursday that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, filed a Supreme Court lawsuit attempting to overturn the election results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in an effort to get a pardon from President Donald Trump.

The Associated Press reported in November that Paxton is under investigation by the FBI over allegations that he abused his office in an effort to benefit a wealthy donor. That investigation came after seven senior staff members under the attorney general urged federal law enforcement in an open letter in early October to “investigate allegations [against Paxton] of improper influence, abuse of office, bribery and other potential crimes.”

“I’m no lawyer, but I suspect the Supreme Court swats this away. From the brief, it looks like a fella begging for a pardon filed a PR stunt rather than a lawsuit—as all of the assertions have already been rejected by federal courts and Texas’ own solicitor general isn’t signing on,” Sasse told The Washington Examiner on Thursday, commenting on the long-shot effort to overturn the election results in the four battleground states to benefit Trump.

[End]

And who knows? Sassy Sasse may be right – the lawsuit could be destined to fail. But are the 17 other state attorneys general supporting the lawsuit also looking for pardons? Are Sasse’s 106 fellow Republicans in the House all looking for pardons? What about the 92 Pennsylvania Republicans – are they looking for pardons? Do all of those Republicans and the myriad lawyers and witnesses who are fighting the good fight in all of these states where massive election fraud did take place have bad motives in Sassy’s eyes?

What a ridiculous thing to say. But hey, it’s Ben Sassy Sasse – ridiculous is his other middle name.

And on the China influence front… – No, this is not about Hunter Biden or Eric Swalwell and his honeypot, although it certainly could be.

No, this is about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and MIT, which refused to allow Sec. Pompeo to speak on its campus out of fear of offending the formerly respected school’s Chinese benefactors. I swear I do not make this stuff up.

From a story at the New York Post:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo unloaded on officials at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on Wednesday, accusing them of refusing to host him because they didn’t want to upset their Chinese interests.

Speaking at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Pompeo accused the Chinese Communist Party of “poisoning” the nation’s higher education system and said American schools were censoring anti-Beijing dissent because they were “hooked on Chinese Communist Party cash.”

“MIT wasn’t interested in having me to their campus to give this exact set of remarks. President Raphael Reif implied that my arguments might insult their ethnic Chinese students and professors,” Pompeo told the crowd in the Peach State.

“But of course nothing could further from the truth. These are the very people that this set of remarks is intended to protect, to protect their freedoms,” he said.

MIT is currently under investigation by the Department of Education for failing to fully declare foreign donations from the People’s Republic of China.

[End]

Oh.

This situation is already intolerable, and we’re about to have a pure China puppet in the presidency.

Pray for our country.

Johns Hopkins University is Going to Need a New Name

Just rename it Eric Swalwell Honeypot U and everything will be solved. – Welp, looks like Johns Hopkins University is going to be getting a new name sometime in the near future. It turns out the founder of the renowned university – yes, his name was Johns Hopkins – was a slave owner back in the 19th century, which came as a surprise to current leaders of the University since the legend about Mr. Hopkins always held that he was an early and avid abolitionist:

Those leaders penned a letter to the current school community and printed by the New York Post in which they revealed the nasty news: “For most of the last century, our institutions believed Johns Hopkins to be an early and staunch abolitionist whose father, a committed Quaker, had freed the family’s enslaved people in 1807,” university leaders wrote in a letter to the Johns Hopkins community. “We now have government census records that state Mr. Hopkins was the owner of one enslaved person listed in his household in 1840 and four enslaved people listed in 1850.”

From a story at the New York Post:

The revelations came to light as part of the Hopkins Retrospective, a project that began seven years ago to explore the school’s origins and history.

The findings contradict a narrative that was a large part of the school’s history.

“For most of the last century, our institutions believed Johns Hopkins to be an early and staunch abolitionist whose father, a committed Quaker, had freed the family’s enslaved people in 1807,” schools leaders wrote in Wednesday’s letter.

“But over the past several months, research being done as a part of the Hopkins Retrospective has caused us to question this narrative. We now have government census records that state Mr. Hopkins was the owner of one enslaved person listed in his household in 1840 and four enslaved people listed in 1850.”

Johns Hopkins launched the school, America’s first research university, in 1876. It created the hospital in 1889. School leaders noted that Hopkins “specifically directed that the hospital extend its care to include the indigent of Baltimore regardless of sex, age, or race.”

[End]

So, the school must be renamed. Oh, they haven’t said that yet, but hell, we have school districts now taking the names of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington off of their schools, how can a comparative slouch like Johns Hopkins survive with his name intact? I mean, all Johns Hopkins did was found the very first research university in the United States of America, a university whose medical center has saved the lives of hundreds of thousand of people, not just Americans, but people of all races, religions and creeds from all over the world in the intervening 144 years since its founding.

What kind of racist sloth could possibly advocate for keeping Hopkins’ name on the school he founded when there are so many more deserving people out there? You know, sterling individuals like Gerrold Nadler or Adam Schiff or Eric Swalwell or Maxine Waters or Alexandria Ocasio Cortez or Chuck Schumer or Michigan’s Governor, Adolpha Whitmer. The list of much more deserving heroes of the left goes on and on and grows daily, literally crying out for more schools named for 17th-and 18th-century racists who were born into privilege, never took any risks for this country and never did anything really significant in their own lives to be renamed.

*sigh*

Is America “Trending Towards Secession”? Maybe So.

On his radio program yesterday, Rush Limbaugh indicated his belief that our country may be trending towards secession by some states.

From the story at Mediaite:

Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show Wednesday that the U.S. may be “trending toward secession.”

As Limbaugh talked about liberal cities like New York and San Francisco, he took up a question of whether “we can win the culture.”

“I actually think — and I’ve referenced this, I’ve alluded to this a couple of times because I’ve seen others allude to this — I actually think that we’re trending toward secession,” he said.

“I see more and more people asking what in the world do we have in common with the people who live in, say, New York?” Limbaugh asked.

In the segment, first flagged by Media Matters, he said, “A lot of bloggers have written extensively about how distant and separated and how much more separated our culture is becoming politically and that it can’t go on this way. There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life, theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs. We can’t be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way.”

[End]

Rush is generally right, and he may well be right here. This all ties in with my piece from the past weekend titled “How Does America Recover From This? It Doesn’t.”

Past generations of Americans had plenty in common, the most obvious among those things being that we were all Americans and all but a tiny few felt an undying loyalty to this country. That love of country – taught in our schools, in our churches and promoted by the entertainment and news media industries – bound us together. We were Americans and damn proud of it.

But that has all changed in America today, specifically on the radical political leftwing, which now dominates the Democrat Party and its policy pursuits. As I discussed in that piece, our entire system of government and the viability of our constitutional Republic depends on the premise that the vast majority of those who govern us would be people of good will who love this country and are loyal to it. Sadly, that entire premise has now become extremely suspect in the Democrat Party, the party that dominates states like New York, which Rush referred to in that monologue.

Today’s Democrat Party not only tolerates having an Eric Swalwell among it, Nancy Pelosi assigns him to serve on the House Intelligence Committee, a post from which he could easily share America’s most tightly held national security secrets to his ChiCom honeypot. Today’s Democrat Party not only tolerates having a Dianne Feinstein – who employed a ChiCom spy as her chauffer for 20 years – in its midst, Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer assign her to serve as the Party’s senior member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Today’s Democrat Party not only tolerates having anti-Semitic, America hating members like AOC, Rashida Talib and Ilhan Omar in its midst, it celebrates them, gives them plum committee assignments and affords them heavy influence in the Party’s agenda.

Today’s Democrat Party not only tolerates having ChiCom sellouts like Joe and Hunter Biden in its midst, it celebrates them, covers up for them and even rigs its presidential nomination for an elderly, declining lifelong circus clown as a reward.

The abject hatred of America and everything it stands far among those on the radical political left is not only glaringly evident in Congress, we can see it every day rioting in the streets and issuing heinous diatribes on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms. We are at a point in this country where one cannot wear a cap expressing a desire for this country to be great again without being physically assaulted on the streets with the full sanction of many local mayors and the entirety of the corrupt national news media. We are at a point in our country where one risks assault by admitting he or she works in the oil industry or goes to church. We are at a point in our country where major city Democrat mayors like Bill De Blasio feel free to repeatedly attack, chastise and discriminate against Jews and Christians.

What do people in Texas or Oklahoma or North Dakota or Louisiana or Alabama have in common with people in New York or California or Seattle or Portland anymore? Not much, and in very large part, not even love of country.

So, when Rush Limbaugh says he thinks we are trending towards secession, he should be taken seriously.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: CNN Admits the New York Post’s Hunter Biden Reporting Was All True

So, CNN admits that the New York Post’s stories on Hunter Biden’s laptop were 100% accurate, then? – Sure seems like it, anyway. You all remember the New York Post’s original reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop and the contents thereon, correct? Remember how the story was spiked by every major corrupt media outlet in the country? Remember how users at Twitter and all of the other big social media platforms were denied the ability to share it? Remember how the Post’s accounts on Twitter and Facebook were shut down for weeks to prevent the newspaper from sharing any other new reporting on that story?

Yeah, it was all so October, the month before the election, of course.

Anyway, the news-fakers at CNN ran a story of their own yesterday, after the Biden fake president-elect operation revealed that China Joe’s creepy ne’er-do-well son was being investigated by the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s office for tax issues. The funny thing is, that CNN story, which came 2 months after the New York Post’s story that was supposedly too toxic to report back in October, essentially confirms every aspect of the Post’s story. But of course, CNN does all of that well after the election has come and gone.

Funny how that works, huh?

I’m not going to excerpt from the CNN story, because to hell with CNN and their compatriots in the corrupt, fake news media. But know that the CNN story also informs us that the FBI and DOJ “paused” their supposed “investigation” of Hunter and his magic laptop throughout the weeks leading up to Election Day because they didn’t want to “influence” the presidential election. Many in the corrupt news media employed the same excuse.

The point here is this: The DOJ and media, by refusing to investigate or report on the laptop DID influence the election, and influenced it massively in Joe Potato Head Biden’s favor.

But that, of course, was the goal. Despicable people.

Speaking of ne’er-do-well Democrats… – It looks like farty Eric Swalwell is lying about his having broken off ties to the ChiCom honeypot with whom he was fooling around and paying back in 2015. From a story at RedState.com:

Swalwell’s defense, as he lays out during the luxurious tongue-bath CNN’s Jim Sciutto offered up, is that he’s had nothing to do with her since she fled back to China in 2015 and, being the patriotic, red-blooded American that he is, Swalwell claims that he has fully cooperated with the FBI and his cooperation was destroyed by the Trump administration who leaked the story of him banging a Chinese spy to the media out of revenge for his key roll in the impeachment fiasco. Or something like that. Swalwell isn’t really smart enough to sound coherent even under the best of circumstances.

That, however, may or may not be the truth.

Oh. Why would a member of congress continue to be friends with a ChiCom spy who got him into a full-blown FBI investigation, five full years after that supposed “investigation” took place? And, why wouldn’t the FBI, if its supposed “investigation” was really on the up and up, be investigating that clearly ongoing relationship between the congressman and the ChiCom spy?

The answers to those questions are a really very obvious, aren’t they? Occam’s Razor really does apply here. Think about it.

Turncoats. Turncoats Everwhere! – Ok, Mitt Romney has never been a real Republican, but President Trump’s ongong challenges  to the obviously-fraudulent election results in five states are really bringing the turncoats out of the weeds now.

Romney is the most prominent among them, because of course he is.:

Then there’s this from regular Fox News contributor Andy McCarthy, who is really getting on board with Paul Ryan’s new “turn hard left” program for the fading fake news channel:

Yes, that would be the “frivolous” Texas lawsuit filed by Texas AG Ken Paxton, the “frivolous” lawsuit that now has 17 other state AG’s signing Amicus briefs supporting it:

Hey, Andy, maybe you should think about standing down on this one.

Speaking of that Texas lawsuit, President Trump yesterday asked Ted Cruz to present the oral arguments related to it before the Supreme Court if the Court agrees to hear the case:

From the story at TheHill:

President Trump has asked Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) to present a case from his state’s attorney general seeking to invalidate the election results of several key battleground states before the Supreme Court should it decide to hear the suit, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

The lawsuit from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) seeks to void the vote certifications of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia and Michigan, arguing that the results are “tainted” by new election processes in those states.

The court has not yet agreed to hear the case on its merits and on Tuesday rejected efforts by pro-Trump attorneys to overturn the results in Pennsylvania in a separate case.

[End]

Texas AG Paxton would need to gain the votes of four of the nine USSC justices in order for the case to receive a full hearing by that body. Given that all of the states that are the subject of the lawsuit clearly violated the constitution by allowing changes to their voting procedures to be made by gubernatorial orders (many of which themselves likely also violate parts of the constitution) or by state courts absent consideration by their state legislatures, it seems likely that the suit will be heard.

If that comes about, Senator Cruz, while serving as Texas’s Deputy AG prior to running for the Senate, argued nine cases before the USSC and won most of them. It would be difficult to find a more effective and experienced advocate for the case, which President Trump also made clear yesterday that his lawyers will support via Amicus briefs.

Very interesting developments all around here.

The face of Mussolini in our time. – Bill de Blasio continued his fascist campaign of discrimination against his city’s Jewish community yesterday:

From a story at DailyWire:

Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned an ultra-Orthodox synagogue in Brooklyn on Tuesday that he will shut them down “once and for all” if they continue to flout his lockdown orders.

During a Tuesday press conference, de Blasio was asked about a large indoor funeral held Monday by Congregation Yetev Lev D’Satmar, a prominent synagogue in Williamsburg that was also recently fined $15,000 for secretly conducting a large indoor wedding in November.

“If we see another confirmed situation in which an inappropriate event is happening in that same building, then we’re going to have to move to shut down the building once and for all,” de Blasio said, according to Gothamist. “That would be the next step if we see non-compliance.”

“I do think there’s an ideological factor that’s making things a lot harder,” de Blasio also said, seeming to imply that the Hasidic community’s continued non-compliance with state and city lockdown orders stems from their widespread support for President Donald Trump.

[End]

Notice all the loaded language being used to refer to the Hasidic Jews: “ultra-orthodox,” “ideological,” “inappropriate,” etc. It’s the very same sort of language pushed by Hitler and Mussolini in the 1930s.

These are very, very frightening times.

DOJ Supposedly “Investigating” Hunter Biden’s Taxes. Yeah, Sure It Is.

It turns out that when you rake in millions from the ChiComs and crooked Ukrainian gas companies and don’t properly report it to the IRS, it actually raises some eyebrows. – Who could have known that? Certainly not Hunter Biden, who no doubt has just assumed that the fact that his Pop (you know, The Big Guy) is a card-carrying member of the DC Swamp, he’s grandfathered in under that same umbrella and thus immune to any action being taken against him by our fat, lazy Attorney General, William Barr and his do-nothing Department of Justice.

And hey, no one should get too excited about it, because it’s probably all just for show, but ne’er-do-well Hunter tweeted out a statement today announcing that he has been formally notified that he is under investigation by the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s office over his tax affairs:

How about that? Naturally, the DOJ’s slow-footed action here comes far too late to save the nation from a four-year term in the Oval Office by Hunter’s ChiCom sellout, mentally addled old geezer Pop (aka, The Big Guy), because that’s just how things happen in the DC Swamp.

From a story at USA Today:

President-elect Joe Biden’s transition announced Wednesday that his son, Hunter, is being investigated for his taxes by the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware.

Hunter Biden was the focus of Republican complaints during the campaign for business dealings with Ukraine and China. But Hunter Biden hasn’t been charged and two Republican-led congressional committees in September found no wrongdoing by Joe Biden.

Political adversaries including President Donald Trump accused the former vice president of benefitting from his son’s business. But Joe Biden denied any illegal or unethical dealings with his son.

Hunter Biden said Wednesday that he learned Tuesday that federal prosecutors are investigating his tax affairs.

Hunter Biden waits for the start of his father's debate in October 2011 at Centre College in Danville, Ky.

“I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors,” Hunter Biden said in a statement.

Biden’s transition office said in a statement that the president-elect “is deeply proud of my son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger.”

[End]

Hooboy. What a load of rank, smelly, fresh horse manure that last statement is. But hey, it was written by a team of Democrat message monkeys, so what else would we expect?

His Corrupt Goal Achieved, Emmet Sullivan Finally Relents

Corrupt federal judge Emmet Sullivan finally, at long last, dismissed the frame-up case against General Mike Flynn, but not before he had compiled and submitted a petulant, 42-page rant smearing the General one last time. Because that’s the kind of raging asshat Emmet Sullivan truly is.

“The history of the Constitution, its structure, and the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the pardon power make clear that President Trump’s decision to pardon Mr. Flynn is a political decision, not a legal one,” Sullivan said in his Tuesday order. “Because the law recognizes the President’s political power to pardon, the appropriate course is to dismiss this case as moot.”

To be clear, this case has been legally moot since last spring, when the Department of Justice admitted that the entire thing had begun as an effort by corrupt FBI officials to frame General Flynn as part of an Obama Administration plot to prevent him from becoming Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor. And to be clear, that plot ultimately worked, in large part thanks to Sullivan’s knowing and willing participation in it. Sullivan’s tireless efforts to repeatedly delay and string out the process were the main reason why this case lasted for more than three years, his gag order keeping Flynn quiet until after the 2020 election had come and gone.

That was the plan all along, and you have to give credit where credit is due. Flynn simply knew where too many of the Obama-era bodies were buried to ever be allowed to hold a high national security position in a Republican administration. So they framed him, persecuted him relentlessly through the Mueller Special Counsel Gestapo operation, and got to the federal judge in the case and convinced him to play his role. And Sullivan played that role to the hilt, resorting to all manner of extra-constitutional maneuvers to string the case along and avoid bringing it to a conclusion.

While we should all be happy for General Flynn and his new-found freedom, we must all also admit that the Deep State won in this instance, and Sullivan’s willingness to grotesquely corrupt his office was the deciding factor. Sadly for our country, there exists no viable means to hold this despicable judge accountable in any real way for his actions. The only legal means of doing so would be for congress to impeach him and remove him from office, but today’s congress can’t agree on what day it is, much less form a consensus around getting rid of an utterly crooked federal judge.

Thus, Emmet Sullivan, after abusing his office to destroy the life of a real, true American hero who has given his entire adult life to the service of this country, will now be allowed to fade back into the shadowy background where he had always functioned before the Flynn case landed in his court. Meanwhile, General Flynn can now go about trying to pick up the pieces and rebuild some semblance of the life he and his family once enjoyed.

This is how our country’s system of “justice” works in the 21st century, thanks to the corruption wrought by eight long years of America’s Worst Mistake, Barack Hussein Obama.

Godspeed, General Flynn.

Wednesday News Roundup: Swalwell’s ChiCom Honey Pot is the Tip of an Enormous Iceberg

Or maybe it’s because he was sleeping with a Chinese spy. Maybe that’s the reason behind the story. – You have to love – or like me, hate – the fake journalist hacks at Politico. Yesterday we found out that California Democrat Eric Swalwell had been sleeping with a ChiCom spy and paid her to help him with, um…’strategic planning’ for several years, prompting a full-blown FBI investigation during the Obama Administration in 2015.

Ever eager to provide cover for its Democrat Party benefactors, here is the take that the Politico hacks decided to run with on the story:

Why yes, it’s all a “conspiracy theory” you see, prompted by the infamous farting congressman’s criticism of President Trump. That’s why, you see, the FBI, then led by Trump hating James Comey, investigated the situation in 2015, long before Donald Trump ever became President. It’s all a great, big conspiracy.

Holy crap.

For the real truth in this story of the ChiComs targeting California Dems like Swalwell, Pelosi and Feinstein, let’s go to the write-up at DailyWire:

Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA) suggested without evidence on Tuesday that the bombshell story that was published this week about his ties to a suspected Chinese spy was payback by the Trump administration for him repeatedly attacking President Donald Trump over Russia.

The alleged spy, Chinese national Christine Fang, “targeted up-and-coming local politicians in the Bay Area and across the country who had the potential to make it big on the national stage” through “campaign fundraising, extensive networking, personal charisma, and romantic or sexual relationships,” Axios reported. “Even though U.S. officials do not believe Fang received or passed on classified information, the case ‘was a big deal, because there were some really, really sensitive people that were caught up’ in the intelligence network, a current senior U.S. intelligence official said.”

“Amid a widening counterintelligence probe, federal investigators became so alarmed by Fang’s behavior and activities that around 2015 they alerted Swalwell to their concerns — giving him what is known as a defensive briefing,” Axios reported. “Swalwell immediately cut off all ties to Fang, according to a current U.S. intelligence official, and he has not been accused of any wrongdoing.”

Fang, who allegedly helped bring in top donors to Swalwell, later left the U.S. in 2015 and returned to China. U.S. officials told Axios that they believe that China’s communist government ended her mission and called her back, perhaps because they saw signs that the U.S. government was closing in on her alleged activities.

[End]

Miz Fang, you see, was the classic honey pot, a cute woman who slept around with corrupt and gullible slugs like Fartwell in order to influence their political actions. Just a small part of the overall ChiCom effort to subvert U.S. officials to their will.

And if you think we have seen the whole story on this, well, buckle up and stay tuned. This is just the tip of the iceberg and there are reports that Swalwell has been feverishly fighting against release of more details about his involvement with the little nymph.

How big is this story? Watch this clip of a senior ChiCom official bragging to an audience about the scope and scale of his government’s success in bribing and honey-potting U.S. politicians at the highest levels:

From a related story at the New York Post:

A recently recorded lecture showing a Chinese Communist Party expert explaining how Beijing had “people at the top of America’s core inner circle” has found its way onto the internet in the United States after being censored in China.

The lecture, given by Di Dongsheng, vice dean of the School of International Relations at Renmin University, in late November also included references to President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter and his business dealings in the Communist country.

Speaking about what was pushing the Chinese to accelerate the reopening of their financial sectors, Di made the revelation that Beijing had a rarely discussed advantage in working with the US prior to the Trump administration.

“We know that the Trump administration is in a trade war with us, so why can’t we fix the Trump administration? Why did China and the US used to be able to settle all kinds of issues between 1992 and 2016?” Di asked, going on to answer the question himself.

“I’m going to throw out something maybe a little bit explosive here. It’s just because we have people at the top. We have our old friends who are at the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence,” the top Chinese political scientist continued.

Di added during the lecture that “for the past 30 years, 40 years, we have been utilizing the core power of the United States.”

As for the future of the US-China relationship, Di appeared optimistic about China’s ability to thrive under an incoming President Biden.

“During the US-China trade war, [Wall Street] tried to help, and I know that my friends on the US side told me that they tried to help, but they couldn’t do much. But now we’re seeing Biden was elected, the traditional elite, the political elite, the establishment, they’re very close to Wall Street, so you see that, right?” Di asked the audience, noting that the next administration would likely take a very different stance from that of President Trump.

[End]

Yes, we see that. Right? Right.

We are being asked by our corrupt news media – which is also completely tied up with and beholden to the ChiComs and their economy – to believe that 80 million Americans went out and voted for a mentally-addled elderly circus clown who every one knows is a corrupt Chinese puppet to be their president. We are expected to just meekly accept that outcome even though literally everyone knows the election was stolen in front of the world via massive election fraud in Detroit, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Atlanta.

Now, do you all understand why octogenarians like San Fran Nan, Dianne Feinstein and Maxine Waters have clung so desperately to their seats of power despite barely being able to keep their dentures in their mouths? Now, do you all understand why the Democrat Party fixed its nomination process for Joe Biden of all people? Now, do you all understand why the Democrat Party was willing to literally steal millions of votes while we were all watching and why its propagandists in the corrupt news media have happily turned every one of their “news” outlets into carbon copies of the Socialist Workers Daily and Pravda?

It’s all about China. It has always been all about China, and if Joe Biden takes the oath of office on January 20 of next year, we will all ultimately become all about China.

That’s what’s at stake here. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise.

That is all.

WATCH: China and America’s Elite – A Tucker Carlson Monologue Every American Should See

Yes, I know everyone hates Fox News now, but bear with me here. – Tucker Carlson delivered a revealing monologue on last night’s show about how the ChiComs are going about bribing and influencing America’s politicians, educators and other elements of the “elite” in our society. It is so on point that Twitter is trying and failing to block access to it this morning.

Take the time to either watch the clip below or read the transcript that follows. You will be glad you did.

Watch this clip:

Here’s the Transcript:

Since the day Donald Trump was elected in 2016, we have been told that Russia is at the very top of the list of threats to America. Russia has penetrated our government. Russia threatens our democracy. Russia works tirelessly to subvert our economy and our way of life.

Of course, such claims were a lie, and we’re all aware of that now. Russia never had the power or the money to control our government, and there’s no evidence they even tried. But that doesn’t mean that there was no collusion.

In fact, top leaders in American government and business have been compromised by a foreign power that seeks to undermine our country and our democratic system. It turns out that many of the very people who ranted so hysterically about Russia  were doing precisely what they claimed to decry. They were working on behalf of our chief global rival, the government of China.

The Russia hoax, effectively, was a diversion. It hid something that is not a hoax at all, but is real and threatening to all of us. We’re going to spend the foreseeable future reporting on the relationship between America’s political and financial elites and the communist government of China that has made many of them very rich.

On Nov. 28, Di Dongsheng, a professor at Renmin University in Beijing, appeared on a Chinese television show about Wall Street and international trade. Like so many in academia in China, Di is a servant of his country’s government. This video was deleted from Chinese social media soon after being uploaded, and here’s why:

DI DONSHENG (translation): The Trump administration is in a trade war with us, so why can’t we fix the Trump administration? Why, between 1992 and 2016, did China and the U.S., use to be able to settle all kinds of issues? No mater what kind of crises we encountered … things were solved in no time … We fixed everything in two months. What is the reason? I’m going to throw out something maybe a little bit explosive here. It’s just because we have people at the top. At the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence, we have our old friends.

Two different Chinese speakers have confirmed the above translation. This is as close to a smoking gun as we have ever seen.

“We have people at the top. At the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence.” According to Di Dongsheng, that has been true for decades.

So who are these people and how many of them work in our media and in our government? Well, Di didn’t say precisely. At another point in the program, he described a Chinese agent working as a vice president at, “a top Wall Street financial institution.” Di explained that he couldn’t say more without making political trouble.

Di did tell his audience that one agent in particular was especially useful, and he goes on at some length about her. He describes her as an American who’s lived abroad for many years and is now a Chinese citizen, and this seems to baffle him a little bit. The Chinese government doesn’t allow dual citizenship. Why would they? Why would anyone? Di seems pleased that the U.S. government is foolish enough to allow it. He explains that this American agent, who lives at least part of the year in Beijing, helped the Chinese government with a propaganda operation in Washington in 2015, and he goes on to describe that in some detail.

The Obama administration was easy to manipulate, Di suggests. The Chinese had many friends among the Obama people. The problem came when Donald Trump was elected. After that, he says, everything changed.

DI DONGSHENG (translation): For the past 30 years, 40 years, we have been utilizing the core power of the United States … Since the 1970s, Wall Street had a very strong influence on the domestic and foreign affairs of the United States, so we had a channel to rely on. But the problem is that after 2008, the status of Wall Street has declined, and more importantly, after 2016, Wall Street can’t fix Trump. Why? It’s very awkward. Trump had a previous soft default issue with Wall Street, so there was a conflict between them. But I won’t go into details, I may not have enough time. So during the U.S.-China trade war they [Wall Street] tried to help. And I know that, my friends on the U.S. side told me that they tried to help, but they couldn’t do much.

Since the 1970s, Di said, Wall Street has had enormous influence over the way the United States government operates. The Chinese government, he says, has enormous influence on Wall Street, and that arrangement worked very well for a long time.

Then Donald Trump unexpectedly was elected in 2016 and Wall Street was infuriated. “Wall Street can’t fix Trump,” he said, but they tried. This gives the game away.

If you’re wondering why our political class has stood by and allowed the Chinese government to degrade this country and our way of life, stood by as the Chinese government has flooded the United States with deadly opioids that have killed hundreds of thousands of people, stood by as the Chinese government ripped off billions of dollars worth of intellectual property from our companies, there’s your answer.

Earlier this year, the chairman of Harvard’s chemistry department was arrested for taking $50,000 per month from the Communist Party of China in return for sending secrets and referring top scientists to Beijing. It barely rated as a scandal and you may not even be aware it happened. Why? Because so many are on the take.

In effect, Donald Trump was an impediment to this very lucrative arrangement, and for that reason, Di explains in the video, America’s most powerful elites — and he calls them that — got to work on electing a new president again:

DI DONSHENG (translation): But now we’re seeing Biden was elected [laughter]. The traditional elite, the political elite, the establishment, they’re very close to Wall Street. So you see that, right? Trump has been saying that Biden’s son has some sort of global foundation. Have you noticed that? Who helped him [Biden’s son] build the foundations? Got it? There are a lot of deals in all these. [laughter, applause]

Di notes, because the Chinese do pay close attention to what we say here, Donald Trump has complained about Hunter Biden and his ties to the Chinese government. So now you know why you weren’t allowed to talk about Hunter Biden’s laptop and why big business aligned as one to suppress that story: Because they were implicated in it.

Back in October, we interviewed a man called Tony Bobulinski, because no one else would. Tony Bobulinski was a business partner of the Bidens. Here’s what he told us about China:

BOBULINSKI: And in a document that you guys have in — I think it’s been provided to, you know, to the world — the Chinese referenced that because of their trust in the Biden family, that Chairman Ye and Director Zang are excited about moving forward in this. And in that document, they reference loaning $5 million to the ‘BD family’ … The ‘BD family’ is the Biden family.

CARLSON: What are the implications of this going forward if Joe Biden is elected president, which could very well happen? How does this constrain his ability to deal with China?

BOBULINSKI: Are you asking for my personal —

CARLSON: I am, I’m asking for your opinion as someone who’s worked with the Chinese.

BOBULINSKI: So I think Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised. 

“I think Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised.”

It looks like Tony Bobulinski was right about that. And it looks like the Bidens are far from the only ones who have been compromised.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Emmet Sullivan is Still out of Control and Elon Musk Flees to Texas

I’m old enough to remember when a presidential pardon meant something. – But it obviously means nothing to corrupt federal judges like Emmet Sullivan, the presiding judge in the frame-up case against General Mike Flynn. Despite the full and complete pardon issued by President Donald Trump a couple of weeks ago, Sullivan has decided to keep his kangaroo court persecuting Flynn running, most likely in an attempt to force Sidney Powell to take time away from pursuing her challenges to the Democrat theft of the presidential election in various states.

On Monday, Sullivan issued orders authorizing the continued filing of Amicus Briefs in the case:

From the article at Gateway Pundit:

Several minute orders by Sullivan were posted to the court docket Monday allowing the filing of amicus briefs in the Flynn case that were filed earlier in the fall when the GOJ motioned to dismiss the case against Flynn. Among those allowed to file are House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) joined by several committee members as well as former Watergate prosecutors. Sullivan refused to dismiss the case even with the charges dropped and has delayed ruling for months even though he was ordered by the D.C. Court of Appeals in a decision rejecting a writ of mandamus request filed by Flynn to “proceed with appropriate dispatch” on the motion to dismiss. That ruling came on August 31. Sullivan is now dragging the case out into December with no end in sight unless another mandamus case is filed by the DOJ or Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell.

[End]

So, at this point we have a rogue judge who has ignored the outright dropping of this farce of a case by the Department of Justice and an outright presidential pardon. Should Sullivan ultimately attempt to enforce a prison sentence on General Flynn, by what real authority would any law enforcement officer with a conscience and allegiance to his oath of office act to enforce it?

If anything, Sullivan’s ongoing abuse of his office cry out for the need to devise a system of holding federal judges more accountable, because in today’s political environment, there is no such system that is actually viable.

You may all go to hell, and I will go to Texas.” – Sam Houston. – Yesterday I wrote about the plan by management at New York financial icon Goldman Sachs to move a big part of its business operations out of the high tax environment of Manhattan to the friendlier fields of Florida.

Today, we have reports that Elon Musk, who already moved his Tesla truck building plant to Texas, also quietly moved his charitable foundation to the Lone Star State earlier this year.

From the story at Business Insider:

Elon Musk moved his charitable foundation to Texas in October, months before the latest round of speculation around the Tesla CEO potentially leaving California.

Documents filed with the Texas Secretary of State’s office, first spotted by Bloomberg on Monday, show the non-profit merged its existing California entity with a newer one based in Austin, where Tesla is building a factory.

The filing is the latest in a string of signs pointing to Musk’s possible exit from California, which began with a tirade against the state’s coronavirus prevention measures this spring. Most recently, CNBC reported that Musk had told close associates he was planning a move to Texas.

The billionaire has already been spending plenty of time in the Lone Star State, where his other venture, SpaceX, has a launch pad. Beyond COVID-19 restrictions that forced Tesla to temporarily close its factory, California also has some of the highest income tax rates in the country. Musk, the highest paid CEO in the country last year, could stand to save a pretty penny by declaring himself of income tax-less Texas.

[End]

For all you Californians who keep voting for Democrats, this is an object lesson on the base problem with socialism: At some point, you run out of other people’s money to steal. Elon Musk, moving his money away of your state’s grasping politicians, is just the canary in a very big coal mine.

Also for you California natives planning to move to Texas along with Mr. Musk: Don’t come down here and continue to vote for Democrats, as so many of your fellow Californians have stupidly done. Our tolerance level for that bullshit is pretty much all used up.  Thanks.

Progress in Arizona and Michigan. – Court cases in the two states took steps forward on Monday with positive rulings by state-level judges.

In Arizona, the state’s Supreme Court has agreed to review a case filed by the Arizona GOP. From a story at JustTheNews:

Arizona’s top court has consented to review an appeal connected to the state Republican Party chair’s challenge of Arizona’s election result certification.

The state Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward lodged a notice of appeal on Friday subsequent to Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Steven Warner dismissing the suit.

Maricopa County had nearly 28,000 duplicate ballots and when 1,626 of those were reviewed, nine included an error regarding the duplication of the vote for president, Warner’s decision noted. The court had ordered that counsel could check 100 duplicate ballots and then Maricopa County provided even more than that for the review.

In a video posted on Monday, Ward said “we are asking to look at the 28,000 duplicated ballots that are in Maricopa County alone as well as all of the digitally adjudicated ballots. Now, if you look statewide, because we’d love to look at those as well, there are well over 100,000 ballots that could be affected and that is more than enough to swing this election.”

[End]

Cool.

Meanwhile, in Michigan, a state district judge granted a resident with legal standing the right to perform a forensic audit of Dominion Systems machines and software in Antrim County. From a story at UncoverDC:

Central Lake resident, William Bailey filed a complaint on Nov. 23, arguing that there was election fraud in Antrim County, along with a violation of the “purity of election clause” and requested access to the county’s 22 precinct tabulators, thumb drives, software, and the clerk’s “master tabulator.” Bailey became suspicious when a review of election results turned up 6,000 votes that had been incorrectly attributed to candidate Joe Biden. His original complaint stated the following: “Constitutional right to accuracy and integrity of elections; violation of the purity of elections clause; election fraud; common law election fraud; equal protection violation; statutory election fraud violations.”

He is represented by Matthew S. DePerno, of Portage, Michigan. The lawsuit is separate from the Trump team lawsuit but the results will be accessible by the Trump lawyers. DePerno also plans to file a lawsuit against the State of Michigan for the 161-page contract they signed in 2017 with DVS because the state signed off on the contract knowing it would not be allowed to look under the hood of the machines and their software—something DePerno contends is unconstitutional.

[End]

While these small movements in the process are nice, it should be noted that the Electoral College meets in 6 days to formally decide the election.

Time is growing short and a big win at the highest level is much needed.

Texas AG Paxton and Sen. Cruz Step Up to Fight Democrat Election Fraud

God Bless Texas for sending this man to Washington. – He is likely the least popular senator among his colleagues in the Senate, and there is a good reason why that is the case. That reason centers around the fact that Texas Senator Ted Cruz is never shy about challenging the status quo, or about upsetting the Senate’s country club atmosphere.

Cruz is a disruptor in the Senate, the uninvited guest to the wedding party who spikes the punch, turns over the bridal cake table or leaps in front of the gathered spinsters to catch the garter. He’s Vince Vaughn in “The Wedding Crashers” alongside Rand Paul playing the Owen Wilson part.

On Monday, Senator Cruz did it again, no doubt eliciting a heavy round of tsk tsks from the Susan Collins’s and Mitt Romneys of the world by tweeting that he’d be more than happy to present oral arguments to the Supreme Court in the Pennsylvania election case should the court decide to hear the case:

Cruz went on to say the following in three subsequent tweets:

Because of the importance of the legal issues presented, I’ve publicly urged #SCOTUS to hear the case brought by Congressman Mike Kelly, congressional candidate Sean Parnell & state rep. candidate Wanda Logan challenging the constitutionality of the POTUS election results in PA.

Petitioners’ legal team has asked me whether I would be willing to argue the case before #SCOTUS, if the Court grants certiorari. I have agreed, and told them that, if the Court takes the appeal, I will stand ready to present the oral argument.

As I said last week, the bitter division and acrimony we see across the Nation needs resolution. I believe #SCOTUS has a responsibility to the American People to ensure, within its powers, that we are following the law and following the Constitution.

[End]

For those who are not aware, Cruz has a strong history of arguing cases before the Supreme Court from his time serving as Deputy Attorney General in Texas. No one has any idea if the court will agree to hear this case or how it would rule if it does, but God Bless Senator Cruz for being willing to stand up while most of his cowardly colleagues are hiding in closets in desperate efforts to avoid taking questions from the press.

To think we almost lost this guy to Beto O’Rourke. Holy crap.

Well, this is a novel approach, at least. – Speaking of the Texas Attorney General’s office, current Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is using the office to join the crowded field of lawyers challenging the results of the November presidential election.  He is taking a novel approach, especially when one considers that Donald Trump easily defeated China Joe Potato Head Biden in the Lone Star State, an outcome no one is challenging.

Per former Texas Ranger Roscoe Davis, Paxton filed a petition directly to the U.S. Supreme Court late last night, claiming that this direct appeal to the USSC is valid due to its standing as the original court of jurisdiction in disputes between states. Paxton’s reasoning, if Davis is accurately summarizing the case, is that the states of Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution and the 12th Amendment by implementing invalid changes to voting rules and procedures via the courts or executive orders. This would make sense to any common sense reading of the Electors Clause, since it gives sole authority to son the subject:

The end around case has been put together by TX AG Ken Paxton suing GA, MI, WI, and PA at SCOTUS. Bringing this case across multiple jurisdictions gives it a straight lane to the SCOTUS.

This happened just before midnight tonight, will post documents soon.

Texas approached the Supreme Court directly because Article III provides that it is the court of first impression on subjects where it has original jurisdiction, such as disputes between two or more states, this is hard tactics.

The Great State of Texas argues that these states violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures.

These non-legislative changes to the Defendant States’ election laws facilitated the casting and counting of ballots in violation of state law, which, in turn, violated the Electors Clause of Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution.

Additionally, Texas argues that there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause. Bush v. Gore 2000.

Finally, Texas argues that there were “voting irregularities” in these states as a result of these changes.

Texas is asking the Supreme Court to order the states to allow their legislatures to appoint their electors. If this is successful it opens the door for the next step.

The genius behind this is they don’t have to prove fraud, there’s no doubt there are “election irregularities” all that has to be proven is that they changed election laws by executive order and not by legislation as required by the US Constitution. Article II, Section 1 Clause 2.

All these Governors and Sec of States making these changes out in the open make the case pretty clear.

The Defense is going to claim it was a COVID Pandemic, mark my words, it’s all they got, it was their excuse for everything in every state.

Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 is really clear and there is no Pandemic clause.

Now when they start screaming Pandemic Crisis, all the libs that went out for haircuts and Napa Valley Dinners, and seen all over the media, claiming privilege, are screwed.

If you can go to the store, go out to eat, go get your hair done, do all the things the political elite were doing, while claiming lockdown and mask mandates, then you can get out and vote, no need for special circumstances!

Game set match.

The relief being sought has not only precedent (Election of 1836) it has constitutional verbage to back it up.

Not asking for the SCOTUS to throw out ballots, just follow the Constitution and the 12th Amendment of a Contingent Election.

[End]

All you folks in Georgia might want to pay attention to steps these Texas officials are willing to take to try to reverse what is a clearly fraudulent election result in your own state, and contrast it to the ongoing coverup being desperately implemented by your own Governor, Brian Kemp, and Sec. State Brad Raffensperger.

It is a very stark contrast indeed.

God Bless Texas.

The Kraken Gets Crushed and Goldman Sachs Escapes From New York

Sidney Powell  and her vaunted “Kraken” election fraud lawsuits have now been summarily dismissed by federal judges in not one, but two different states: Georgia and Michigan. Making matters worse for the bombastic attorney, the dismissals have come in bipartisan fashion, first from an Obama-appointed judge in Michigan and then from a George W. Bush appointee in Georgia. Really not a good outcome or look at all for Powell, who has deployed the most inflammatory rhetoric imaginable around her challenges to the obvious Democrat fraud that took place around the November 3 elections.

Here’s an excerpt from a Detroit Free Press story on the Michigan dismissal:

A Michigan federal judge has ruled against a sweeping legal bid to overturn election results in the state, determining the lawsuit brought by an ally of President Donald Trump was riddled with “theories, conjecture and speculation” but little evidence of wrongdoing.

U.S. District Judge Linda V. Parker ruled against a request from Sidney Powell — an attorney disavowed by the Trump campaign who still champions its causes — to force the state to award its electoral votes to Trump despite President-elect Joe Biden winning the state.

“In fact, this lawsuit seems to be less about achieving the relief Plaintiffs seek — as much of that relief is beyond the power of this Court — and more about the impact of their allegations on People’s faith in the democratic process and their trust in our government,” reads a portion of the 36-page opinion.

“Plaintiffs ask this Court to ignore the orderly statutory scheme established to challenge elections and to ignore the will of millions of voters. This the Court cannot, and will not, do. The people have spoken.”

Ouch.

Now, here’s an excerpt from an 11Alive.com story about the Georgia decision:

ATLANTA — UPDATE: Judge Timothy Batten in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia has dismissed the lawsuit.

A similar suit in Michigan was also dismissed this morning.

It’s likely Powell will appeal to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta, which itself over the weekend dismissed a similar suit brought by the attorney Lin Wood.

The sprawling suit at its core alleges a wide-ranging conspiracy perpetrated by international and domestic actors to use Dominion Voting Systems, the company that makes the voting machines for Georgia and a number of other states, to rig the election for Joe Biden, in large part by switching votes from President Trump to Biden.

Georgia’s hand-count audit of all 5 million of Georgia’s paper votes (both those printed out by the Dominion machines, which were reviewed by voters, and those submitted by mail) confirmed the original machine count, and a machine recount has so far confirmed those two previous counts, making it highly implausible the results were manipulated at any point.

Powell and those who have given testimony for her have instead argued that in Georgia, fraudulent ballots were inserted into the system and the hand-count was conducted in a manner to deliberately overlook them. They have not offered direct material evidence of this, instead at a Georgia Senate hearing last week presenting data analysis and accounts of various individuals who served as poll workers or observers during the election and audit.

[End]

Ms. Powell, for whom I continue to have great respect, will no doubt appeal both cases up the chain until she can get one or both heard before the U.S. Supreme Court. But in doing so, she and her cohort Lin Wood would be well-advised to spend less time doing media interviews and staging pep rallies and more time compiling actual proof of their claims. Doing that would be a real service to everyone.

Meanwhile, Business Insider has a story today indicating that Goldman Sachs management may have finally had enough of Bill De Blasio’s and Andrew Cuomo’s high taxes and general bullshit and is preparing to move its asset management operations to Florida.

Here’s an excerpt from that wonderful story:

Goldman Sachs, an icon of New York finance headquartered in a downtown Manhattan skyscraper a short walk from Wall Street, is considering shifting its asset management operations to Florida, according to a new report.

Company executives have looked at possible South Florida office space near Miami, covering areas like Palm Beach County and Fort Lauderdale, people with knowledge of the matter told Bloomberg News.

If the plans pan out, the bank would join other New York-based financial services firms in making similar moves out of the state and to cheaper states and markets as the coronavirus pandemic spurred a wave of remote work.

Goldman Sachs has been speaking with local Florida officials and considering the lower taxes there, per the report. While Bloomberg reported that it is unclear how many people could locate there, staff would include a mix of back-office staff and investment professionals, according to two of the people Bloomberg spoke with.

[End]

Hey, anything bad happening to the despicable creeps who run New York is great for the rest of the country.

Just a bit of good news on an otherwise gloomy day.

The Root Causes of Pearl Harbor Serve as Important Lessons for America Today

Guest Piece by Gregg Updike

Remembering Pearl Harbor – Part two, The Cause 

NOTE From the Author: On this date last year, I wrote a Lengthy comment on what was the long-term legacy of the December 7, 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.  David Blackmon contacted me via email and offered to post it as a standalone article giving attribution to me.  He posted it the next day with his appropriate title “Yalta and Potsdam: Days That Still Live in Infamy”.  That title was and is particularly appropriate because the Pearl Harbor attack was the galvanizing event which thrust the United States into World War II and created the Yalta and Potsdam foreign policy giveaways, the legacy of which still create most of the foreign policy problems America faces today.

Here is my next installment on Pearl Harbor which describes why and how it happened:

The origins of the Pearl Harbor attack can be traced back to 1853 when the United States essentially forced a feudal Japan to open trade via Commodore Matthew Perry’s squadron of armed ships.  Japan, at that time was very much like much of Europe was centuries before with warlords using the obsolete sword as the primary weapon of war duking it out among their various tribes with little central control.  This forced Japan out of some 250 years of self-imposed isolation from the rest of the world and they opened one port for international trade.  Other nations, including Russia soon followed trading with Japan.

Japan’s leadership saw how far they were behind in weaponry and understood they were vulnerable to becoming a dominated colony.  Unlike China and the Philippines and even America’s Native Americans they decided it was far better off to unite and be able to defend their homeland rather than be subjugated under another nation’s rule.

Of the seven major powers in World War II, only England was a mature nation with centuries of consistent governance.  It took until the middle 1800s for America (1865 and many years after to recover from the Civil War), Japan (1868), and Italy and Germany to become unified nations.  The ruling dynasties of Russia and China had collapsed by 1917 and the 1920s, respectively.  Japan, once unified, took great pains to ‘catch up’ with western technology and essentially armed itself to the teeth to make it very costly for any power to colonize them.  That coupled with their islands having virtually no exploitable resources ensured their independence on the world stage.

Throughout this period England had the most powerful navy and it only made sense that Japan would emulate it and in fact formed an alliance and a trading partnership with England.  Originally warships and other weapons were imported, studied and copied and once their industrial base became developed, they built their own.  England and other European Powers were happy to have another customer for its military accoutrements and with the purchaser on the other side of Asia they did not feel threatened.  This was also the time when wooden sailing ships were being replaced by steel and coal power and other modern technologies from which Japan benefitted greatly.

Within twenty-seven years Japan embarked on being a colonial power and fought their first war with China where they gained Formosa (Taiwan) at little cost.  Ten years later (1904-5), seeing the building of the Russian Trans-Siberian Railroad as a threat, they launched a sneak attack on Russia and opened their second conflict without a formal declaration of war against a neighbor.  They were unbelievably successful and defeated what was considered a first-class western power and navy; the world took notice.

Troubles with America began brewing at about this time and would fester for the next four decades until that fateful “Day of Infamy”.  The highlights are:

Late 1800s, America acquired the Philippines which was viewed as a threat

  1. Theodore Roosevelt intervened in the Russo-Japanese War and was and forced the Treaty of Portsmouth on Japan which halted the war, but was seen as another unwelcome intervention. The peace deal greatly benefitted Japan at the time because they were still very weak economically and even winning was bankrupting them.
  2. As an ally of England Japan defeated Germany in 1918 and gained many German colonies in the central Pacific at little cost by being on the right side.
  3. In 1921-2, the United States forced a naval arms limitation treaty on the Japanese which ultimately saved Japan from going broke and America from embarking on an expensive arms race.  Japan and America were the only two countries not severely impacted by World War I and the other naval powers had no ability to engage in such a race.  Japan wanted naval parity but was forced to accept second rate naval status; they greatly resented being limited to building 60% of what the United States and Great Brittan could.
  4. America, through its diplomacy, forced a fracturing of the Anglo-Japan trade and arms alliance further exacerbating the deteriorating relations. However, England still sent military equipment and a training – most notably in naval aviation – commission to Japan.  America’s purpose was to prevent Japan and England ganging up on the US Navy from the Atlantic and Pacific in a continued alliance – we still were not all that friendly with England post World War I.
  5. America passed very restrictive immigration laws in the 1920s severely limiting Japanese immigration, and later during the Depression enacted trade tariffs which destroyed Japanese exports to the United States.
  6. America passed very restrictive immigration laws in the 1920s severely limiting Japanese immigration, and later during the Depression enacted trade tariffs which destroyed Japanese exports to the United States.

While Japan was embracing capitalism and modern ways, their centuries old traditions were always in the forefront especially regarding the tradition of the emperor and racial purity.  When the worldwide Depression hit, Japan was among the hardest hit.  The militant wing of the military gradually took over and much of the nominal civilian control of their government was run by assignation throughout the thirties.  The cause of much of this upheaval was the near total autonomy granted to the army and navy and the perceived failing of western capitalism as an economic system.  In short, during the 1930s Tokyo could not control the Army and the Army could not control its mid-level officers when they were stationed next to Mongolia, China and the USSR.

These hotheads provoked border clashes with all three nations.  In 1930, another naval arms treaty was forced upon Japan which was even more unpopular with its hawks in the navy.  In 1931 army officers precipitated the Manchuria ‘incident’.  The result was a large territorial gain with some resources but international condemnation.  Ultimately this led to Japan walking out on the worthless League of Nations when they were condemned by the body in 1934.  At around this time Japan also quit the naval treaty restrictions as of 1936.  Japan was rapidly becoming a rogue nation and was seen as a regional bully.  With the depression deepening, the hotheads in the military never being sanctioned by their superiors and gaining ever more power, Japan saw its destiny as being the leader of the Orient, they had their own version of lebensraum (living space), which was dubbed “The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere” with the ultimate goal of driving out the European colonial powers.

In 1937 another boarder ‘incident’ was provoked, this time with China which was embroiled in its own civil war and was always seen as being weak since the collapse of its running dynasty decades earlier.  This conflict resulted in an eight-year quagmire with no victory, great losses, and a near premature war with the United States.  Only a massive diplomatic apology for sinking a US Navy gunboat, the Panay, averted open conflict.

Soon thereafter, there was another boarder clash – this time with the USSR – and the Japanese Army got its nose bloodied and quickly sued for peace and later signed a long-term non-aggression pact with Stalin.  This ‘incident’, as Japan liked to call their undeclared wars was a disaster for her because it forced the permanent deployment of over half its army to defend against a feared USSR attack and paralyzed their military doctrine which effectively reduced their ability to fight America in the Pacific.

Japan soon thereafter allied with Germany and Italy, by formally joining the Axis.  Further incursions into China caused the United States to begin trade embargoes on vital resources.  When Japan’s Army bullied its way into French Indochina (Vietnam) in July of 1941 to gain a key staging point, Roosevelt got the world to cut off all oil supply to Japan.  This was intolerable and Japan was going to have to either accede to America’s demands which included leaving ALL of China in order to get the oil and other resource trade resumed or fight.  Even without the embargo Japan was going to default on foreign trade by 1942.  The only way to stave off economic disaster was territorial expansion and take the resources it needed to achieve hegemony and self-sufficiency.  Being in a similar circumstance as Germany in 1938, they followed Hitler’s route to war and national destruction.

Japan’s initial targets were England’s Malaysia, Singapore and Burma and the Netherlands’ (Dutch) East Indies in order for it to survive as an independent nation and not a colony under the Allies’ thumb.  As events transpired, France had fallen which allowed for the bloodless grab of their Indochina colony which gave them a vital operation base for future expansion.  The Netherlands likewise fell to Hitler and their oil producing islands were ripe for conquest.  England was known to be extremely weak in Asia and was fighting for its very existence, so her prized colonies were also vulnerable. Furthermore, in late 1941 the USSR was on the brink of collapse and not a threat at that time.   All these ambitions could have been successfully realized at this time except for one major problem.

That problem was the United States and its Philippine possession which laid astride the main line of advance to the southern resource areas that Japan needed.  Earlier in 1941 the US Navy was permanently stationed at Pearl Harbor from the US west coast which represented a major threat that could not be ignored.  Japan’s plans of conquest would likely succeed only if America remained neutral.   However, since America was already seen for decades as a probable future belligerent, it had to be incorporated into the grand scheme.  And finally, one other event occurred which forced the Pearl Harbor attack decision: After the fall of France, America embarked upon a massive naval building program that would be realized in 1943-44.

In 1941 Japan’s Navy was equal to or held numerical superiority over the US Pacific Fleet, however it would be dwarfed by the US Navy in three years AND be out of oil.  The window of opportunity and time to strike was at the end of 1941 when American strength and the other allies were at their nadir.  The strategic situation was never going to be better and the economic and military dynamic was only going to deteriorate.  By mid-1941, Japan had found itself truly between a rock and a hard place, but it was a rock and a hard place largely of its own making.

The three thousand plus mile sneak attack on Pearl Harbor was extremely contrary to Japan’s Naval doctrine which was basically defensive in nature and designed to be fought within a thousand or so miles of their home Islands.  The main reason Pearl Harbor was attacked was to disable the US Pacific Fleet (like they did with Russia in 1904) to gain a six month breathing space whereby Japan could conquer the southern islands, get their resources flowing and capture the Philippines without interference form the (on paper) powerful US Pacific Fleet.  In that regard she succeeded brilliantly with their tactical raid which should have been strategic attack.  In the end it was a strategic blunder because it galvanized a lethargic America like nothing else could have and spelled Japan’s doom.

In closing, America also bears some of the blame in its clumsy handling of Japan in the forty years prior to the Pearl Harbor attack, and because it began rebuilding its military and navy far too late to thwart Japan’s imperialist ambitions.  Had the mobilization and new construction begun when Japan quit the limitation treaties, invaded China, attacked the USSR, when Germany attacked Poland, or when Japan joined the Axis, it would most likely have persuaded its leaders that a war with the United States was a no-win proposition under any circumstances.  Reagan’s doctrine of “Peace Through Strength” was a true then as it was in the 1980s and is true today.  A powerful unassailable United States would probably have kept Japan at bay and it likely would have forced them to play nice on the international stage.

A perceived weak United States always emboldens mischief from nations controlled by tyrants.

Monday News Roundup: China, not Russia, is America’s Real Adversary

While the Democrats and corrupt news media – all of whom are beholden to China – were distracting the nation by painting Russia as our nation’s boogeyman, here is what was really happening in the world. – If you read just one item of news today, read the op/ed piece Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe authored for the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal.

In that piece, DNI Ratcliffe details chapter and verse why China – not Russia and a fading Putin – is America’s #1 adversary in the world, and how it is infiltrating our economic, economic and political systems to subvert our country to its will without firing a shot.

Here is an excerpt from that piece just to whet your appetite:

Within intelligence agencies, a healthy debate and shift in thinking is already under way. For the talented intelligence analysts and operators who came up during the Cold War, the Soviet Union and Russia have always been the focus. For others who rose through the ranks at the turn of this century, counterterrorism has been top of mind. But today we must look with clear eyes at the facts in front of us, which make plain that China should be America’s primary national security focus going forward.

Other nations must understand this is true for them as well. The world is being presented a choice between two wholly incompatible ideologies. China’s leaders seek to subordinate the rights of the individual to the will of the Communist Party. They exert government control over companies and subvert the privacy and freedom of their citizens with an authoritarian surveillance state.

We shouldn’t assume that Beijing’s efforts to drag the world back into the dark will fail just because the forces of good have triumphed before in modern times. China believes that a global order without it at the top is a historical aberration. It aims to change that and reverse the spread of liberty around the world.

Beijing is preparing for an open-ended period of confrontation with the U.S. Washington should also be prepared. Leaders must work across partisan divides to understand the threat, speak about it openly, and take action to address it.

This is our once-in-a-generation challenge. Americans have always risen to the moment, from defeating the scourge of fascism to bringing down the Iron Curtain. This generation will be judged by its response to China’s effort to reshape the world in its own image and replace America as the dominant superpower. The intelligence is clear. Our response must be as well.

[End]

Think of how America’s posture towards the ChiCom government is going to shift if China Joe Potato Head Biden, whose family has profited to the tune of millions from Chinese interests over the past decade, is installed into the presidency. Think of how easy it will then become for Xi Jinping and the ChiComs to subvert our political system, especially if the Democrats win both runoff elections in Georgia and assume control of both houses of congress.

In the media, talking heads at every major TV and radio outlet and newspapers have been spouting ChiCom talking points for years now, with their social media cohorts censoring anti-China messaging on their platforms. Our major universities have for years now taken millions from ChiCom interests to fund pro-China propaganda classes and professors.

This is serious stuff, folks. Deadly serious.

In the political system, ChiCom efforts to bribe and influence politicians is not limited to Washington. Watch the reactions of several governors as Sec. State Mike Pompeo details Chinese corruption at the state level at their Winter Meeting of the National Governors Association:

If you think it’s not really important for President Trump to prevail in his efforts to overturn the stolen election, think again. If you think the results of the Georgia runoffs and who ultimately controls the U.S. Senate are not important, think again.

Russia is just a Democrat fantasy, propaganda pushed out to the public for the last 5 years in a concerted effort with the corrupt news media to obscure the real threat to our nation posed by China. America has one clear and present adversary that is a real threat to its ultimate survival, and Vladimir Putin has nothing to do with it.

Meanwhile, in other news…. – Rudy Giuliani tested positive for COVID-19, because of course he did:

*sigh*

Hey, look, the FBI appears to be doing something productive! – It’s probably just a shiny object aimed at propping up the dumpster fire Bureau’s disastrous reputation, but FBI agents did seem to conduct an actual raid on a residence in Arizona’s Maricopa County (home to Phoenix and more than half of the state’s voters) on Sunday:

From the story at Forbes.com:

On the morning of November 5, as the 2020 election hung in the balance, Arizona federal agents raided a two-story house in Fountain Hills, Maricopa County, a county that had become a key battleground in the presidential race. The agents were looking for evidence of a cyberattack on an unnamed organization and stolen voter data. They left with eight hard drives, three computers and a bag of USB sticks. The resident of the property, a 56-year-old IT expert named Elliot Kerwin, was served the warrant. He is not yet facing charges and was unreachable for comment at the time of publication. There is no indication that anything other than voters’ information, which can be acquired for a few hundred dollars in Arizona counties, was taken from the affected office.

The warrant, discovered by Forbes this week, reveals investigators have been looking into a computer intrusion at an unnamed “victim office,” which occurred from October 21 to November 4. At the Kerwin residence, they were looking for any evidence within the seized computers that showed they’d been used to access the IT network at the office, as well as “protected voters’ information” and any indication that it had been disseminated to other people.

Of the 15 county recorder’s offices contacted by Forbes about the investigation, only one, Maricopa County, confirmed voter data had been stolen, noting that a federal investigation was under way. The Maricopa County Recorder’s office, which is just 30 minutes’ drive south from Kerwin’s home, did not confirm whether or not the investigation was the same as that referred to in the search warrant.

[End]

Ok, so, the raid took place over a month ago and the county officials claim that a “federal investigation” is taking place. Meanwhile, the Electoral College is scheduled to meet and vote a week from today. Do any of you think the FBI and DOJ will produce a shred of results from their “investigation” if those findings would benefit Donald Trump and his quest to prove the massive voter fraud that the Democrats perpetrated in the state of Arizona?

If so, shoot me an email. I’ve got some prime real estate I’d like to talk to you about buying. Thanks.

Sunday News Roundup: Barr, Sessions Hires Are Trump’s Worst Failures

Let’s just start with this meme found on Twitter this morning:

Image

Yes, imagine that.

Then there’s this:

Image

Will this be a case of the underling questioning the boss? We know the CIA has plants throughout the mainstream news media, a practice in which it has engaged since its creation shortly after World War II. Anyone who thinks Fox News is free from such skullduggery hasn’t been paying much attention to the content on Fox News lately. Not that anyone can blame you for that, of course.

But here’s the thing: In a just and free society in which laws mattered, John Brennan would be in federal prison, not making Sunday morning appearances on Fox News or raking in millions from his contributor deal with MSNBC. But that’s all been lost in America over the past 25 years, aided and abetted during the Trump Administration by worthless Attorneys General Jeff Sessions and William Barr.

To exemplify just how abjectly worthless Barr and his “Special Counsel” John Durham have been, late last week Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told an interviewer that he and his staff have provided “thousands” of classified Intelligence Community documents to Durham over the past several months.

From a story at BizPac Review:

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says he’s turned over “thousands of documents” to U.S. Attorney John Durham during his investigation into the origins of the so-called “Russian collusion” probe of the 2016 Trump campaign.

In an interview with the Washington Examiner published Thursday, Ratcliffe said he’s counting on Durham to uncover the truth about what the DNI believes is monumental corruption and wrongdoing by officials tied to the Russia investigation.

However, he added, that doesn’t mean all of what he’s passed along to Ratcliffe should be declassified and revealed due to the sensitivity of sources.

“Between my predecessor Richard Grenell in an acting capacity and myself, we have declassified most of the intelligence community documents that would be suitable for the public to see, that wouldn’t jeopardize sources and methods,” he told the outlet.

“There are others, many many documents — I think it’s been out there that I’ve provided literally thousands of documents to John Durham, but many of those do contain sources and methods that we can’t make public for a number of reasons, including to jeopardize any investigation that’s going there,” Ratcliffe continued.

“So I think the level of cooperation — I’ve given them everything that they’ve asked for,” he added.

[End]

Ratcliffe has indeed given Durham and Barr what they’ve asked for. No one should have expected this public servant to do anything less.

But what has been the result? What has the American public gained from Ratcliffe’s and Grenell’s stalwart efforts to end the information roadblock at the DNI’s office? Bupkis. No action from Durham whatsoever. No indictments, no wee hours of the morning arrests, no perp walks, none of the criminals who staged a long, slow-motion coup d’etat from 2017 through 2019 in any real jeopardy of ever being held accountable for their crimes against this nation.

The DOJ is an absolute travesty of injustice, and the failure to identify and hire a patriot to serve as AG will be remembered as Donald Trump’s single most damaging failure during his first term in office.

News you will not see reported on any national corrupt news outlet:

Think about that for a second: Why does the national news media refuse to report on the thousands of human trafficking arrests made over the past four years by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies? Is it just because it makes the Obama Administration, which showed no interest in doing anything effective to bust rings like this, look bad? Or is there something more sinister at play here?

It’s a good and valid question, and someone should be forced to answer it at some point.

Oh, well, color me shocked. Not. – It’s always about the money on the radical left, folks, and the Black Lives Matter communists are no exception. The Washington Times reports that some regional BLM chapters are up in arms about the fact that their national leadership appears to have made millions of dollars intended to fund the looting and burning of Democrat-run cities just disappear into the ether.

From that story at the Washington Times:

Black Lives Matter is facing a rebellion within its own ranks as regional affiliates seek greater control over the movement and demand answers about where millions of dollars in donations have gone.

After years of tensions between the national organization and local outlets, the rift went public this week with the release of a statement by 10 BLM chapters accusing the top brass at the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation of failing to open their books or share the wealth with the rank and file.

“For years, there has been inquiry regarding the financial operations of BLMGN and no acceptable process of either public or internal transparency about the unknown millions of dollars donated to BLMGN, which has certainly increased during this time of pandemic and rebellion,” reads the “Statement from the Frontlines of BLM” posted Monday.

“To the best of our knowledge, most chapters have received little to no financial support from BLMGN since the launch in 2013,” the statement reads.

In addition to the D.C. chapter, the missive was signed by affiliates in Chicago, Denver, Indianapolis, New Jersey, New York’s Hudson Valley, Oklahoma City, Philadelphia, San Diego, and Vancouver, Washington. The chapter in Louisville, Kentucky, said it supported the chapters.

Hilarious. Could not happen to a nicer bunch of Marxist thugs.

Despite Trump Rally, Things are not Looking Good in Georgia Runoffs

This happened in Valdosta, Georgia last night:

Thousands of Georgians turned out to see President Donald Trump speak, exemplars of the 75 million Americans who voted for him in November and who won’t be just fading into the woodwork in the wake of this clearly stolen election. At several junctures throughout the night, the crowd of patriots loudly stated what they intend to keep doing:

Naturally, no TV outlet carried the rally as the corrupt media continues its efforts to bully the public into accepting an election stolen vial massive voter fraud, but the event attracted hundreds of thousands of viewer via various livestreams:

The rally was ostensibly held to build support for Georgia’s two RINO senate candidates, Kelly Loeffler – an appointee of corrupt RINO Gov. Brian Kemp – and Sonny Perdue, who has all the leadership qualities of the average river flounder. The President called the two candidates up onto the stage to speak to the crowd, but they both cut themselves short, as Loeffler’s utterly embarrassing speech was met with only tepid applause and the crowd simply drowned Perdue out with another round of its’ “Fight For Trump” chant.

Vernon Jones, the Democrat Georgia State Representative turned Trump supporter, told an interviewer that these Senate runoff elections are vital to the country’s future: “As Georgia goes, the country goes,” he said.

And he’s right. As repugnant as Loeffler and Perdue might be to Trump supporters, Georgia presents the voters with yet another choice between useless RINOs who care only about power and greed but would likely vote the right way most of the time, and two radical Democrats who want to destroy the American Republic. Trump is trying to convince his army of supporters to once again hold their collective noses and turn out en masse to ensure the RINOs win.

The big problem is this: These Trump supporters clearly see Kemp and Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger doing nothing whatsoever to ensure that the method of counting votes – you know, the method that allowed the Democrats to steal the state for Joe Biden on November 3 – is changed for the January runoffs. In fact, these two obviously corrupt officials have spent the last month twisting themselves into pretzels in their frantic efforts to avoid changing a damn thing.

To make things even worse, neither Perdue nor Loeffler are visibly doing anything to urge their fellow RINOs to act to secure the process.

It’s hard to expect the Trump army to get itself all worked up to get out and support this collection of surrender monkeys in the absence of the slightest sign of good faith from a single one of them. Thus, unless something truly major happens to shift that current dynamic in the state, no one should expect either GOP candidate to prevail on January 5. Even if they collect more legal votes than their opponents, the Democrats will just go create as many as they need to change the outcome, and do it all under the not-so-watchful eyes of Kemp and Raffensperger.

“If we don’t vote, we will lose the country,” Loeffler said before she exited the stage in embarrassment. While that is almost certainly true, it remains a mystery why Loeffler and Perdue continue to refuse to do anything real to make sure Trump voters turn out for them.

It’s as if the RINO-dominated Georgia GOP actually wants to lose. We should all ask ourselves why that would be the case.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Joe Potato Head Biden and San Fran Nan Say the Quiet Parts Out Loud

China Quid Pro Joe Potato Head Biden and San Fran Nan Pelosi both violated the cardinal rule of DC Swamp Kabuki Theater on Friday: They said the parts that are supposed to remain quiet out loud.

For the last 6 months I and many others have written about the probability that Biden is just a place-holder, selected by the Democrat Party to “win” the office only because Kamala Harris – their preferred choice – was to awful a candidate to have any hope of winning. Once installed in the Oval Office, Joe Potato Head would quickly develop some “health-related issue” to use as a reason for resigning and deeding the presidency to the sock puppet Harris. There never really has been any mystery about this being the Democrat plan: It’s been obvious from the day they fixed the South Carolina primary for Biden.

On Friday, Joe Potato Head’s creeping dementia took over his mouth and he just came right out and admitted that’s going to happen at the first sign of disagreement with his designated successor.

Watch with the sound turned on:

Oh. You don’t say. If you think Joe Potato Head was just joking around there, just give it ’til March or so and watch what happens. You’ll be welcoming President Kamala before you know it.

Then there was San Fran Nan, speaking to the assembled lapdog press a little bit later in the day, looking and sounding for all the world like a villain out of a Batman movie. Pelosi spent the entirety of August through Election Day personally serving as a decrepit, doddering, slobbering roadblock to any and all Covid-related stimulus legislation. She also spent every day of those three months lying about what she was doing.

Well, on Friday, she not only admitted what she’s done, she bragged that she is really quite proud of it all. You don’t have to believe me – just watch and listen:

Oh.

In other unintentionally hilarious news, Joe Potato Head told Fake Jake Tapper on CNN that he will make sure that his crook son Hunter doesn’t do anything to mess up his presidency, because of course he says that.

From a story at the New York Post:

President-elect Joe Biden said Thursday his son Hunter Biden won’t reap an overseas business windfall from his new job as commander-in-chief.

“My son, my family will not be involved in any business, any enterprise that is in conflict with or appears to be in conflict with where there’s appropriate distance from the presidency and government,” Biden told CNN journalist Jake Tapper in a taped interview.

Hunter Biden’s business relationships in China, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine became a major focus in the weeks ahead of the Nov. 3 election.

An abandoned laptop provided by a Delaware computer repairman to President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani contained bombshell documents appearing to implicate Joe Biden in his son’s business relationships in China and Ukraine.

[End]

Of course, Biden gave similar assurances to the fawning media and the public that he wouldn’t use the office of the Vice Presidency for personal financial gain, and we saw how that all worked out. If you beliee him when he says it now, you’re even dumber than you looked when you voted for him.

From our Yeah, Sure, Right, Uh-huh, You Betcha file… – Fat, lazy, do-nothing Attorney General William Barr says his DOJ is on the job!

*sigh*

On the China Virus front, the news is not all bad and depressing. – After all, the Sheriff of Los Angeles County promised yesterday to defy Governor Gavin Newsom’s latest draconian shutdown order. From a story at DailyWire:

On Thursday, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva reportedly asserted that he won’t force his deputies to enforce a new statewide stay-at-home order against businesses issued by California Governor Gavin Newsom and state health officials.

Bill Melugin of KTTV tweeted that Sheriff Villanueva “tells me he found out about the new stay at home orders from Governor Newsom’s press conference, and there was no coordination with law enforcement beforehand, which he says is concerning when the Governor is expecting enforcement of his orders.”

Villanueva told KTTV, “I want to stay away from business[es] that are trying to comply, they bent over backwards to modify their operations to conform to these orders and then they have the rug yanked out from under them, that’s a disservice. I don’t want to make them more miserable.”

Melugin added, “Sheriff Villanueva says he believes the Lakers & Dodgers celebrations and Thanksgiving played a part in our recent surges, and that the civil unrest protests earlier in the year contributed to an earlier surge. Doesn’t believe restaurants, etc, are to blame.”

[End]

So, not all California public officials are despicable fascists. Good to know.

Yeah, they might all end up in prison. – Meanwhile, down in the Devil’s playpen that is Georgia, election officials are begging a judge to allow them to purge the general election data from their Dominion Systems voting machines, claiming that a failure to do so could result in “grave and serious consequences”:

Good lord. What a cesspool Fulton County has become.

How Does America Recover From This? It Doesn’t.

How does America come back from all of this? How does our country recover from the last five years of rank media fakery, Democrat depravity and China Virus mendacity?

I was asked that question this week on my regular appearance with 93.1 FM afternoon talk show host Greg Budell, who blessedly provides the people of Montgomery, Alabama with a brilliant alternative to listening to Sean Besmirched Bought and Paid For Captain Tick Tock Hannity.

My terse reply was, we don’t. Not in any real sense, anyway.

That’s also how a more expansive answer begins this morning. America doesn’t recover from all of this, folks. It can’t, for the simple fact that our society has lost two fundamental foundations that are absolutely necessary in order for our constitutional republican system to work:

The first and most fundamental of those is the assumption by the founding fathers that positions of political power would be filled by people who actually love this country. Men like Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, John Jay and Ben Franklin weren’t at all naive about human nature: They knew that politicians as a class would tend towards corruption and graft and greed. That is as it has always been and as it always will be.

But even the greedy and corrupt can still love the country and want it to survive and prosper, and that is the assumption that has been lost within the Democrat Party today, the Democrats in the House of Representatives being the most stark example.

The House Democrat caucus today consists of several distinct classes:

– A leadership class typified by greedy grifters like San Fran Nan, who have become fabulously wealthy while profiting from their positions of power;

– Race baiters like Sheila Jackson Lee, who line their pockets with money collected from the poorest of the poor in their districts;

– Hoax and conspiracy mongers like Adam Schiff who are still lying about Russia collusion and have no scruples that might prevent them from holding the country hostage for half a year to a completely made-up impeachment hoax; and

– Marxist radicals like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her “squad,” who also manage somehow to become fabulously wealthy, prancing around in $2,000 dresses while pushing frauds like the Green New Deal that would bankrupt the country.

No one in that House Democrat caucus has the best interests of the country in mind. Their sole driving interest is the acquisition and maintenance of political power that can be leveraged for their personal gain. As we have witnessed in this stolen election via massive voter fraud, the entire Democrat Party today is nothing but a huge organized crime operation, and the entire country is its victims.

This increasingly and overwhelmingly corrupt behavior by the Democrats should surprise no one. I’ve been writing for more than 30 years about the fact that politicians who have no moral scruples nor any fear of ever being held accountable for their actions will always become increasingly depraved and corrupt over time. It is simple human nature.

This brings us to the second fundamental foundation of American society that has been completely lost: A functioning news media establishment.

The founders envisioned that a free press would collectively serve as America’s Fourth Estate, a watch dog that protected the public interest by working to hold people in positions of power accountable by exposing their depravity and mendacity. The drafters of the Bill of Rights believed a free and functioning press was so crucial to maintaining the American Republic that they enshrined freedom of the press in the Constitution’s very first amendment.

They weren’t naive about the press of their time: They knew some media outlets would be biased and corrupt, but also believed the press as a whole would serve its intended function in our society, because exposing political corruption, regardless of party, sells newspapers.

That assumption held and the system worked right up until the point at which big, diverse, international corporations and billionaires began buying up the nation’s major media outlets. Today, well over 90% of the national mainstream media outlets are owned by six or seven huge corporations whose senior leadership is firmly globalist in nature. They all detest Donald Trump and his supporters with a passion and reward their media people for tailoring their coverage in ways that do him harm, often functioning at the direct behest of their financial benefactors in China.

Worse, corporate behemoths like AT&T, Comcast and Disney use their media subsidiaries like CNN, NBC and ABC as loss leaders within their corporate umbrellas, and don’t give a damn about audience size or profitability. Every incentive to employees in those media operations encourages corrupt and biased behavior that ends up creating hyper-focus on Trump and his fellow Republicans and aggressive efforts to avoid negative reporting about Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats.

Even worse than all of that is the fact that the freedom of the press enshrined in the first amendment and the interpretations of that clause by the federal courts over the past 231 years, combined with corporate ownership that does not care about profitability, means that there is basically no way for the public to hold the media accountable for its mendacity. Just as is true with politicians, corrupt journalists who have no fear of being held accountable for false reporting, and are in fact rewarded for it, will only become increasingly corrupt and dishonest. Again, simple human nature.

Thus, with a media class that has no fear of accountability refusing to cover a Democrat political class that has no fear of being held accountable, neither of which possessing a shred of love of country, the country will inevitably continue to spin out of control until it collapses or dissolves into a second civil war.

That is how we get to a situation in which a presidential election has literally been stolen in plain sight by one political party and the media establishment joins its arms in unison in abject refusal to cover the biggest political scandal in U.S. history, despite the enormous audience and profits real coverage would invariably bring.

How does America recover from this?

It doesn’t.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Fulton County Fraud Video – the Game Changer Trump Needs?

Brian Kemp and Brad Raffensperger have a big problem on their hands. They have both steadfastly refused to take a single real or honest step to ensure that a full signature audit of the absentee and mail-in ballots takes place in their state despite the presence of mounting evidence that the presidential election – and probably at least one senate election – in their state was outright stolen by the Democrat Party.

As I pointed out late yesterday, testimony at a legislative hearing there revealed a video of Fulton County workers pulling rollerboard suitcases filled with thousands of hidden ballots out from beneath desks and shoving them into the Dominion counting machines after the room had been cleared of observers:

This video evidence has gone viral across all social media platforms and is placing a huge amount of pressure on the Georgia Governor and Secretary of State to finally do the right thing. But – and there is always a “but” in this month-long soap opera, it seems, if Sidney Powell is right in her repeated claims that both officials are themselves compromised by having financially benefitted in their leadership in awarding Dominion Systems a huge contract to provide vote counting hardware and software in their state, then they will likely just keep trying to kick the can down the road until the Electoral College vote is held on December 14.

Will this video become the game-changer the President and his lawyers need? If so, it needs to change the game soon. Time is growing short.

Here is more compelling evidence of the impact this video had on the election’s outcome. – Check out this tweet Eric Trump sent out early Friday morning:

That chart matches the vote tabulations reported during the time frame in which the video above takes place. Not surprisingly, it shows the biggest surge of the night in favor of China Quid Pro Joe Potato Head Biden. Surreal.

Hey, I wonder if William Barr would consider this to be “evidence”? Naaaahhh.

Meanwhile, in Nevada… – Take a look at this pile of evidence:

Do you think William Barr or anyone at the dumpster fire FBI has spent a moment looking at any of it? Yeah, probably not, because, as President Trump told reporters yesterday…:

Oh.

Coming soon to the United States:

Very soon, probably during 2021, you will either have to get vaccinated and obtain one of these cards and carry it with you in order to be able to travel or dine out or go to a movie or attend the theater or even go grocery shopping if the brutish American left has its way.

But don’t even suggest that maybe voters should have to show an ID before voting, or these same brutish, fascist leftists will cancel you.

Today is Alyssa Farah’s last day on the job. – Ms. Farah has been one of the unsung heroes of the Trump Administration. Yesterday, it was announced that she has resigned and that today will be her last day on the job:

Over the last three years, Ms. Farah has served as the Communications Director for the Secretary of Defense, the Vice President and the President. She is the first woman to ever serve in all of those three high-intensity positions.

Because she has achieved this remarkable accomplishment during a Republican presidency, Farah will received precious little credit from our corrupt news media establishment. But we will certainly give her full credit and appreciation here at DBDailyUpdate.

Godspeed, Alyssa.

While you weren’t looking, RINO Senator Mike Lee and his fellow Senate RINOs sold your children’s future out. – Watch Tucker Carlson excoriate Utah fake Republican Mike Lee and his fellow Senate RINOs for passing a massive giveaway of American tech jobs to foreign workers:

Here’s an excerpt from a Breitbart article on this horrific bill:

Every Republican and Democratic senator has let Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) pass a bill through the Senate that will supercharge the outsourcing of the white-collar jobs needed by America’s professional class and its college-educated children.

Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016 while promising to curb immigration and the huge H-1B program, said Kevin Lynn, founder of U.S. Tech Workers, a group that opposes the visa worker programs. He can veto the bill, or he can sign this bill when it is buried in the huge coronavirus bailout bill, Lynn said, adding, “If this is what Trump wants to be his legacy, well, good luck with that.”

“They’re going to turn millions of white-collar people into blue-collar people,” said Jay Palmer, a civil-rights activist working against human trafficking and the corporate displacement of Americans.

The bill hits “doctors, accounting, insurance people, teachers, graphics designers, pharmacists … [denies] college students from ever having an opportunity to get meaningful jobs, it floods the market, draws down wages, and makes people dependent on big government,” he said.

“Ninety percent of the senators do not know what this bill means,” he added.

Lee’s S.386 bill helps the Fortune 500 and Silicon Valley firms to annually trade green cards to 140,000 mid-skilled foreign workers in exchange for taking the starter jobs and routine jobs needed by U.S. graduates of all ages — especially as the country emerges from the coronavirus crash.

[End]

This bill is nothing more than a massive giveaway to the same big tech companies who have been censoring conservative thought and speech for the past decade. Why can’t the voters of Utah do better than Mike Lee and Mitt Romney? It’s a real mystery.

Fake news. Fake news everywhere. – Check out this tweet sent out by the news-fakers at @TheHill on Thursday:

FYI, this “controversial” testing method is called “seismic testing.” It is a method that the oil and gas industry uses in order to map underground geologic strata in an attempt to determine whether or not the various layers of rock contain hydrocarbons. To be clear, this “controversial” testing method has been used by the U.S. industry since 1921, and use of it in the Gulf of Mexico has been approved by every U.S. President since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

This story is just one of a million examples of how leftwing fake “journalists” fake the news they deliver to the American public.

Despicable hacks.

Brian Kemp Punts Again on Georgia Election Fraud Reality

The ball is completely in your court, Governor. – Yesterday’s legislative hearing in Georgia apparently had an impact, at least on RINO Governor Brian Kemp, it seems. In a Fox News interview last night, Kemp called for what should have happened two weeks ago, a full signature audit of mail-in and absentee ballots in the state.

From a story at DailyWire:

Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp called for a signature audit of the state’s election results on Thursday night during an interview on Fox News, saying that some of what allegedly came out today during a Georgia Senate Government Oversight Committee hearing was “concerning.”

“You know, I’ve called early on for a signature audit, obviously the secretary of state, per the laws and the Constitution would have to order that; he has not done that,” Kemp said. “I think it should be done. I think, especially with what we saw today, it raises more questions. There needs to be transparency on that. I would again call for that, and I think in the next 24 hours hopefully we’ll see a lot more from the hearings that the legislature had today and we’ll be able to look and see what the next steps are.”

[End]

Oh. So Kemp claims to be on board with a full signature audit, but still refuses to exercise his emergency powers to overrule obviously corrupt Secretary of State Brian Raffensperger, who has steadfastly refused to do the right thing for a full month now.

In case you missed it, the Georgia hearing included, among many other things, this stunning video in which a Fulton County Democrat election official clears all GOP observers from the counting room and then, along with 3 other Democrats who stay behind, pulls out rollerboard suitases filled with thousands of “ballots” and starts shoving them into the Dominion counting machines:

Kemp also joined a chorus of other Republicans – including Texas Senator Ted Cruz and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich – in condeming attorney L. Lin Wood for his remarks at a Wednesday pep rally (I can find other word to accurately describe the event) in which he told the audience to not vote for the Republican candidates in January’s runoff elections:

Kemp slammed attorney Lin Wood, an alleged Trump supporter who has an extensive history supporting Democrats, for encouraging people to not vote in the upcoming Senate runoff elections.

“It’s like Lin Wood saying today, urging the people not to go vote in this election — all that is gonna do is give the Democrats everything they want,” Kemp said. “It’s gonna give the radicals everything they want. This is literally the firewall. So, I think we all have to pull together and figure out what have we got to do to assure people that their vote’s gonna count. I believe that it will; that’s why I’m working so hard for David and Kelly, and I’m going to continue to do that.”

[End]

Given that those elections will determine majority control of the U.S. Senate for the next two years, I have to admit that Kemp is actually right for once.

To be fair to Wood, he sort of qualified his exhortations to sit out the election by stating that voters should do so if Kemp and Raffensperger don’t get rid of the Dominion Systems machines and software and clean the vote counting processes in the state up prior to the elections. Given everything we’ve learned about Dominion and its cohort, Smartmatic, over the past two weeks, Wood unarguably makes a strong point. If alternative technology can’t be acquired by then, Kemp should act to delay the runoff until the situation can be resolved.

As President Trump has correctly pointed out multiple times now, Kemp himself does have the power to declare an emergency and overrule Raffensperger’s ongoing efforts to obstruct a proper audit. He has had no problem at all exercising those powers in response to the China Virus for the past eight months, but remains reluctant to take that step in a situation in which his state has clearly experienced outright theft of the presidential election in his state.

Time to act, Governor. Stop deflecting and obfuscating and act, or go down in history as just another RINO who did nothing as our Republic slipped away.

That is all.

Stunning Video of Election Fraud Presented at Georgia Hearing

Presented at today’s legislative hearing in Georgia, check out the Fulton County [Atlanta] security video below. In it, the Democrat election official clears the room of all observers, and then, along with three others, stays behind to pull out rolling suitcases full of ballots that they then continue to count:

Maybe someone should share this video with William Barr since he claims he hasn’t seen any evidence of massive voter fraud yet. Not that he’d bother to do anything about it, of course.

Here’s another, multi-view clip of the same video:

Then there was this testimony:

This is Democrats in America today. The entire party is your basic organized crime operation, enabled by an utterly corrupt news media and a worthless FBI/Department of Justice.

Thursday News Roundup: Democrat COVID Hypocrisy Reeks of the Days Before the French Revolution

Hey, Marie-Antoinette would’ve loved This French Laundry place. –  Truly, if Marie-Antoinette were alive today she would be a Democrat politician. The hypocrisy of Democrat office holders in California is getting to be so rank and smelly now that even the state’s major newspapers are holding their collective noses and reporting on it.

The San Fran Chronicle reported on Wednesday that Governor Gavin Newsom and the state’s Democrat health officials aren’t the only ones who love to dine at the fancy French Laundry restaurant on the expense accounts of powerful lobbyists while admonishing the little people to stay home and deprive themselves: It turns out that the city’s worthless communist mayor, London Breed, likes to get her own thousand dollar meals as well:

From the SFChron piece:

Gov. Gavin Newsom is in good company when it comes to politicians attending fancy birthday parties while encouraging others to avoid gathering.

It turns out San Francisco Mayor London Breed dined at the French Laundry the night after Newsom’s infamous, ill-advised, mid-pandemic soiree at the three-star Michelin restaurant in Yountville.

Breed took a few days off after election day and joined seven others the night of Nov. 7 to celebrate socialite Gorretti Lo Lui’s 60th birthday, Breed’s spokesman Jeff Cretan confirmed. The party of eight dined in the same kind of partially enclosed room with a ceiling and chandelier as Newsom did — making it more of an indoor dining experience than an outdoor one.

While indoor dining was allowed in Napa County at the time with no specified limit on the number of households, the state’s guidelines “strongly discouraged” social gatherings and capped them at three households. Breed’s dinner at an opulent restaurant — amid an economic catastrophe that’s shuttered countless small businesses and stretched the lines at local food banks to new lengths — might not have technically violated the rules, but it isn’t a great look.

The dinner would have certainly violated San Francisco’s health guidelines if it took place in Breed’s own city. San Francisco has issued stricter guidance than the state for several types of businesses, including restaurants, which were not supposed to seat groups larger than six indoors or outdoors unless everyone lived together. Three days after dining at the French Laundry, Breed banned indoor dining in San Francisco altogether.

[End]

Oh.

If any of that surprises you, you really have not been paying attention.

Democrat hypocrites are not limited to Blue states. – Trust me, we have them in droves in Texas, too. This week’s prime example of rank Democrat hypocrisy comes to us in the form of Austin mayor Steve Adler, the guy who has turned downtown Austin into a San Francisco-style homeless encampment.

On November 9, Adler live-streamed a speech in which he lectured his city’s residents on the vital importance of staying at home and foregoing large gatherings for Thanksgiving. What he did not do during that speech is inform his voters that he was delivering it from his fancy time share condo in … wait for it … Cabo San Lucas!

I swear I do not make this stuff up:

Mayor Adler also did not inform his city’s voters that his family trip to Cabo came right after he had paid for a fancy, 20-person wedding for his daughter. When questioned by the local media about the wisdom of holding such an affair when he is lecturing the little people to avoid having dinner with their parents, Adler bragged that the whole thing was properly socially distanced and that everyone wore masks.

He didn’t provide photos or anything else as proof of that claim, because of course he didn’t.

How do you spell “hypocrite” in America today? The same way you’ve always spelled it: D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T.

Dear Democrats: When you’ve lost CNN, you’ve got a real problem. – The hacks at USAToday did their best to rationalize all this Democrat hyper-hypocrisy away on the claim that it’s all somehow been “taken out of context,” but even the reprobates at CNN weren’t having any of that. Watch below as one CNN host actually speaks truthful words about Democrats live on air, which will probably get her fired:

Wow.

Meanwhile, the natives are growing increasingly restless. – A huge crowd of angry citizens in Staten Island, New York gathered outside a bar called Mac’s Public House after police had forcibly shut it down and arrested the owners:

From the story at ABC7NY:

Sheriff’s deputies are taking extraordinary measures in an ongoing battle with the owners of a Staten Island bar, moving in Tuesday night to shut down the establishment and arresting the general manager.

Mac’s Public House on Lincoln Avenue still has its windows plastered with signs calling it an “autonomous zone,” but now, the sheriff’s office is in control.

Crowds shouted at deputies as they led the restaurant’s general manager, Danny Presti, out in handcuffs after repeated warnings to stop serving customers indoors.

Owner Keith McAlarney said he took the actions he did because his business would not survive another shutdown. Mac’s Public House is located in Grant City, a coronavirus hot spot, and with hospitalizations surging, Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered indoor dining suspended there.

[End]

See, you can only declare yourself to be an “autonomous zone” in today’s America if you are leading a gang of leftist rioters who loot stores and burn buildings and have the endorsement of the local communist Democrat mayor. If you’re a business owner who is just trying to survive, you are fresh out of luck.

This brutish, pervasive and frankly evil level of hypocrisy simply cannot long prevail in a free republic: It can only continue if the republic no longer remains free, and the Democrat Party is well on the way to taking America down that sorry road, using a Covid virus – the common cold is also a Covid virus, by the way – that has a 99.98% recovery rate as justification for their draconian measures.

With despotic Democrats now poised to assume control of the federal executive branch – and potentially both houses of congress as well – America stands poised atop a very slippery slope that could slide rapidly into outright revolution should Biden/Harris and their evil handlers follow through on their promises of national lockdowns and other patently unconstitutional measures despite the rapid development and distribution of an array of vaccines.

The scene outside Mac’s Public House was an actual peaceful protest. No one was hurt, no buildings were burned, no nearby Best Buy’s or Dick’s Sporting Goods were looted. But if this reprehensible level of Democrat hypocrisy continues to prevail in the blue states and escalates to the national level, such scenes will not remain peaceful for much longer.

No nation that is home to an abusive ruling class is truly a free nation. In such nations, freedoms for the common people rapidly disappear, as we have seen happen in America in 2020. As we move into the future, Americans must either resolve to rid themselves of their own abusive ruling class, or we will lose our status as a free nation.

In the course of all human history, there has never been another way.

That is all.

Trump Speech on Democrat Election Fraud

Yesterday from the White House, President Trump delivered a 46-minute-long speech detailing the Democrat Party/corrupt media’s efforts to steal the 2020 election, and promising to see his efforts to expose that fraud and find a means of reversing it to the bitter end. Naturally, not a single one of our corrupt media outlets have shown the speech in full, and the social media giants have engaged in efforts to censor it.

For the readers of DBDailyUpdate, below is a clip from the speech, a long with a full transcript of the President’s remarks. The transcript is very long – about 6,000 words – but as the President says, it is also very important.

Thank you. This may be the most important speech I’ve ever made. I want to provide an update on our ongoing efforts to expose the tremendous voter fraud and irregularities which took place during the ridiculously long November 3rd elections. We used to have what was called, election day. Now we have election days, weeks, and months, and lots of bad things happened during this ridiculous period of time, especially when you have to prove almost nothing to exercise our greatest privilege, the right to vote. As President, I have no higher duty than to defend the laws and the Constitution of the United States. That is why I am determined to protect our election system, which is now under coordinated assault and siege.

For months, leading up to the Presidential election, we were warned that we should not declare a premature victory. We were told repeatedly that it would take weeks if not, months, to determine the winner, to count the absentee ballots and to verify the results. My opponent was told to stay away from the election, don’t campaign. “We don’t need you. We’ve got it. This election is done.” In fact, they were acting like they already knew what the outcome was going to be. They had it covered and perhaps they did, very sadly for our country. It was all very, very strange. Within days after the election, we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint the winner even while many key states were still being counted.

The constitutional process must be allowed to continue. We’re going to defend the honesty of the vote by ensuring that every legal ballot is counted and that no illegal ballot is counted. This is not just about honoring the votes of 74 million Americans who voted for me, it’s about ensuring that Americans can have faith in this election and in all future elections.

Today I will detail some of the shocking irregularities, abuses and fraud that had been revealed in recent weeks but before laying out just a small portion of the evidence we have uncovered, and we have so much evidence, I want to explain the corrupt mail-in balloting scheme that Democrats systematically put into place that allowed voting to be altered, especially in swing states, which they had to win. They just didn’t know that it was going to be that tough, because we were leading in every swing state by so much, far greater than they ever thought possible. While it has long been understood that the Democrat political machine engages in voter fraud from Detroit to Philadelphia, to Milwaukee, Atlanta, so many other places. What changed this year was the Democrat party’s relentless push to print and mail out tens of millions of ballots sent to unknown recipients with virtually no safeguards of any kind. This allowed fraud and abuse to occur in a scale never seen before. Using the pandemic as a pretext, Democrat politicians and judges drastically changed election procedures just months, and in some cases, weeks before the election on the 3rd of November.

Very rarely were legislatures involved and constitutionally, they had to be involved, but very, very rarely, and you’ll see that as we continue to file our suits, it’s constitutionally, absolutely incorrect what took place, even from a legal standpoint. Many states, such as Nevada and California sent millions of live ballots to every person on their voter rolls whether those individuals had requested ballots or not, whether they were dead or alive, they got ballots. Other states such as Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin, instituted universal absentee balloting right in the middle of an election year, sending absentee ballot requests forms to all voters on all rolls. It didn’t matter who they were. This colossal expansion of mail-in voting opened the flood gates to massive fraud. It’s a widely known fact that the voting rolls are packed with people who are not lawfully eligible to vote, including those who are deceased, have moved out of their state, and even our non-citizens of our country.

Beyond this, the records are riddled with errors, wrong addresses, duplicate entries, and many other issues. This is not disputed. It has never been disputed. Dozens of counties in the key swing states have more registered voters on the rolls than they have voting age citizens, including 67 counties in Michigan. All of this is evidence. In Wisconsin, the state’s Board of Elections could not confirm the residency of more than 100,000 people, but repeatedly refused to remove those names from its voter rolls before the election. They knew why, nobody else did. I knew why. They were illegal voters. It is a travesty that in the year 2020, we do not have any means of verifying the eligibility of those who cast ballots in an election and such an important election it is, or determining who they are, whether they live in the state or whether they’re even American citizens. We have no idea.

We have an in all swing states major infractions or outright fraud, which is far more in numbers or votes then we need to overturn the results of a state. In other words, in Wisconsin, as an example, where we were way up on election night, they ultimately had us miraculously losing by 20,000 votes. I can show you right here, that Wisconsin, we’re leading by a lot and then at 3:42 in the morning, there was this, it was a massive dump of votes, mostly Biden, almost all Biden. To this day, everyone’s trying to figure out, “Where did it come from?” But I went from leading by a lot, to losing by a little and that’s right here. That’s at 3:42 in the morning, that’s Wisconsin, a terrible thing, terrible, terrible thing.

But we will have far more, many times more than the 20,000 votes needed to overturn the state. If we are right about the fraud, Joe Biden can’t be president. We’re talking about hundreds of thousands of votes. We’re talking about numbers like nobody has ever seen before. Just as an example, in certain states, we’ll be down by, let’s say, 7,000 votes, but we’ll find later on 20,000, 50,000, 100,00, 200,000 discrepancies or fraudulent votes, and that includes votes that went through when they were not allowed to be seen by Republican poll watchers, because the poll watchers were locked out of the building. Or people that innocently came to vote on November 3rd, who were all excited about their vote, they were happy. They were proud to be citizens of the United States of America, and they went up and they said, “I’d like to vote.” They were told that they can’t vote. “I’m sorry,” they were told, “I’m sorry. You’ve already voted by mail-in ballot. Congratulations. We received a ballot, so you can no longer vote.”

They didn’t know what to do. They had no one to complain to, most just left and said, “That’s strange.” But many people complained and complained vehemently, and in a lot of cases, they filled out a provisional ballot, which was almost never used, but in virtually every case was a vote for Trump. In other words, they went in to vote and they were told that they voted and they didn’t vote. They left and they felt horror and they lost respect for our system. This happened tens of thousands of times all over the country. That’s how desperate the Democrats were. They would fill out ballots of people not even knowing if these people were going to show up. When they did show up, they said, “Sorry, you’ve already voted.”

On top of everything else, we have a company that’s very suspect. It’s name is Dominion, with the turn of a dial or the change of a chip, you could press a button for Trump and the vote goes to Biden. What kind of a system is this? We have to go to paper, maybe it takes longer. But the only secure system is paper. Not these systems that nobody understands, including in many cases, the people that run them. Although, unfortunately, I think they understand them far too well.

In one Michigan County, as an example, that used Dominion systems, they found that nearly 6,000 votes had been wrongly switched from Trump to Biden, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. This is what we caught. How many didn’t we catch? Are there 100s of other examples throughout the country? Are there 1000s? We just got lucky and they called it a glitch, but we found numerous glitches that evening. 96% of the company’s political donations went to Democrats, not surprisingly. Frankly, when you look at who’s running the company, who’s in charge, who owns it, which we don’t know, where are the votes counted? Which we think are counted in foreign countries, not in the United States, Dominion is a disaster. Election authorities in Texas have repeatedly blocked the deployment of Dominion systems due to concerns about security vulnerabilities and the potential for errors and outright fraud.

Every district that uses Dominion systems must be carefully monitored and carefully investigated, but not only for the future. Right now, we’re worried about the present, and what went on with an election that we won without question. Under my lead, the Republicans won almost every state house in the United States, which they weren’t expected to do. We went up to 16 seats in the house. The numbers are still being tabulated, because there are nine seats that nobody really knows. They don’t know. Two weeks later, it’s still under consideration, because it’s a mess. Republicans were supposed to lose many seats, and instead they won those seats in the house, and a very important election that’s coming up will determine whether, or not we hold the Senate.

David Perdue and Kelly Leffler are two tremendous people. Unfortunately, in Georgia, they’re using the same horrible dominion system, and it’s already been out that, think of it, hundreds of thousands of absentee ballots have been requested. You check it out who’s requesting those ballots. The difference is, it’s one state, and we will have our eyes on it like nobody’s ever watched anything before, because we have to win those two Senate seats. The tremendous success we had in the House of Representatives, and the tremendous success we’ve had so far in the Senate, unexpected success all over the country, and right here in Washington.

It is statistically impossible that the person, me, that led the charge lost. The greatest pollsters, the real pollsters, not the ones that had us down 17 points in Wisconsin when we actually won, or the ones that had us down four or five points in Florida, and we won by many points, or had us even, and down in Texas, and we won by a lot, not those pollsters, but real pollsters. Pollsters that are fair, and honest said, “We can’t understand a thing like this. It’s never happened before. You led the country to victory, and you were the only one that was lost. It’s not possible.”

The speaker of the house of a certain state said, “Sir, I expected to lose my seat, and instead, because of you, and because of that incredible charge, and all of those rallies, we had a tremendous victory, and everybody knows it. You are much more popular than me, sir, except I got many more votes than you did, and it’s impossible that that happened. There is something wrong.” I’ll tell you what’s wrong, voter fraud. Here’s an example. This is Michigan. At 6:31 in the morning, a vote dump of 149,772 votes came in unexpectedly. We were winning by a lot. That batch was received in horror.

Nobody knows anything about it. By the way, there’s your line. This is one of many. Here’s what is normal, and all of a sudden, look at that. This is normal, normal. Look even here, normal, and then boom, all of a sudden, I go from winning by a lot to losing a tight race. It’s corrupt. Detroit is corrupt. I have a lot of friends in Detroit. They know it, but Detroit is totally corrupt. Look at this, look at this. That’s at 6:31 in the morning, unexpectedly came in. In the recent recount in Georgia, which means nothing because they don’t want to check signatures, and if you’re not going to check signatures in Georgia, it doesn’t work, but we have a secretary of state, and a governor who made it very difficult to check signatures.

Why? You’ll have to ask them, but without a signature match, or a check, it doesn’t matter. They found thousands and thousands of votes that were out of whack, all against me. This was during a recount that I didn’t even think mattered. They found many thousands of votes, and that recount didn’t matter. The one that matters is the one that’s going on now, that because of the fact it’s so close, they had to by law give another recount, but the recount has to be a recount where they check the signatures. Otherwise, they’re just checking the same dishonest thing. It won’t matter.

In this case, the signatures on envelopes are the only thing that is relevant. We will compare the signature on the envelope to the signatures from past elections, and we will find that many thousands of people signed these ballots illegally. The Democrats had this election rigged right from the beginning. They used the pandemic, sometimes referred to as the China virus, where it originated as an excuse to mail out tens of millions of ballots, which ultimately led to a big part of the fraud, a fraud that the whole world is watching, and there is no one happier right now than China.

Many people received two, three and four ballots. They were sent to dead people by the thousands. In fact, dead people, and we have many examples filled out ballots, made applications, and then, voted, which is even worse. In other words, dead people went through a process. Some have been dead for 25 years. Millions of votes were cast illegally in the swing states alone, and if that’s the case, the results of the individual swing states must be overturned, and overturned immediately. Some people say that’s too far out, that’s too harsh. Well, does that mean we take a precedent, and we’ve just elected a president where the votes were fraudulent?

No, it means you have to turn over the election, and everybody knows without going much further, and they’ve seen the evidence, but they don’t want to talk about it what a disaster this election was, a total catastrophe, but we’re going to show it, and hopefully, the courts in particular, the Supreme Court of the United States will see it, and respectfully, hopefully, they will do what’s right for our country, because our country can not live with this kind of an election. We could say, let’s go on to the next one, but no, we have to look also at our past. We can’t let this happen.

Maybe you’ll have a revote, but I don’t think that’s appropriate. When those votes are corrupt, when they’re irregular, when they get caught, they’re terminated, and I very easily win. In all states, I very easily win, the swing states, just like I won them at 10 o’clock in the evening, the evening of the election. We’re not looking to show you 25 faulty or fraudulent votes, which don’t mean anything, because it doesn’t overturn the state, or a fifty, or a hundred. We’re showing you hundreds of thousands far more than we need, far more than the margin, far more than the law requires. We can show many times what is necessary to win the state.

The media knows this, but they don’t want to report it. In fact, they outright refuse to even cover it, because they know the result if they do. Even what I’m saying now will be demeaned and disparaged, but that’s okay. I just keep on going forward, because I’m representing 74 million people, and in fact, I’m also representing all of the people that didn’t vote for me. The mail-in voting scam is the latest part of their four year effort to overturn the results of the 2016 election, and it’s been like living in hell. Our opponents have proven many times again and again, that they will say, and do anything to get back into power.

The corrupt forces who are registering dead voters and stuffing ballot boxes are the same people who have perpetrated one phony and fraudulent hoax after another. You’ve been watching it now for four years. These entrenched interests oppose our movement, because we put America first. They don’t put America first, and we’re returning power to you the American people. They don’t want America first, they only want power for themselves. They want to make money, that’s why they don’t want me as your president. I’ve been investigated from soon after I announced I was running for president.

When I immediately went to number one in the Republican primary polls, the investigations never stopped. They went on for four years, and I won them all, I beat them all. Russia, Russia, Russia, the impeachment hoax, and so much more. Robert Mueller spent $48 million of taxpayer money investigating me for two and a half years, issued over 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants, issued 230 orders for communications records, and conducted 500 witness interviews, all looking to take me down. There was no collusion in the end, none whatsoever. Senator Marco Rubio, the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee stated, “The committee found no evidence that then candidate Donald Trump, or his campaign colluded with the Russian government.” And, I thank Senator Rubio for that statement.

Now, I hear that these same people that failed to get me in Washington have sent every piece of information to New York, so that they can try to get me there. It’s all been gone over, over and over again. For $48 million you go through tax returns, you go through everything. The New York attorney general, who recently ran for office campaigned without knowing me stating, “We will join with law enforcement and other attorneys general across this nation in removing this president from office.”

I never met her. It’s important that everybody understand she’s better. “It’s important that everybody understands”, she said, “that the days of Donald Trump are coming to an end.” And all it’s been is a big investigation in Washington and New York and any place else that can investigate because that’s what they want to do. They want to take not me, but us down. Then we can never let them do that. Everything has been looked at. A friend of mine, who’s very smart, said, “You’ve probably seen more than anybody else. You’ve probably been investigated more than anybody else. And for you to come out with a clean bill of health makes you probably the cleanest person in this country.”

Some people in this administration, but fortunately not all have been beaten down and disparaged. They just disappeared. Nobody knows what happened to them. Why aren’t they active? Why aren’t they involved? There’s so much to be involved in. The corruption is so rampant. They just couldn’t take it anymore. They were threatened by Democrats with impeachment and horrible things were said about them. And they’re good people. Even recently, the head of the GSA was hounded and harassed as she reported, like she has never been before. What can I say? We caught Comey cold, we caught McCabe cold. We caught them all. We’re still waiting for a report from a man named Durham, who I have never spoken to, and I have never met. They can go after me before the election as much as they want, but unfortunately Mr. Durham didn’t want to go after these people, or have anything to do with going after them before the election. So who knows if he is ever going to even do a report.B

Bot if you look at the lies, and the leaks, and the illegal acts of behavior done by so many people, and their desire to hurt the president of the United States, something should happen. The hardest thing I have to do is explain why nothing is happening with all of these people that got caught spying on my campaign. It’s never happened before and it should never happen again to a president of the United States. All you have to do is watch the hearings and see for yourself. The evidence is overwhelming. The fraud that we’ve collected in recent weeks is overwhelming, having to do with our election. Everyone is saying, ” Wow, the evidence is overwhelming”, when they get to see it. But really it’s too late to change the course of an election. It’s too late to change the outcome.

In fact, there is still plenty of time to certify the correct winner of the election and that’s what we’re fighting to do. But no matter when it happens, when they see fraud, when they see false votes and when those votes number far more than is necessary, you can’t let another person steal that election from you. All over the country, people are together in holding up signs, “Stop the steal.” To understand how we will challenge this fraud, it is important to know the problems with mail-in balloting. Pennsylvania, Michigan, Nevada, Georgia, Arizona, and most other states allowed anyone to get an absentee ballot and cast their vote without showing any ID. The voting took place entirely on the honor system, no identification of any kind was required.

Most Americans would also be shocked to learn that no state in the country verifies United States citizenship as a condition for voting in federal elections. This is a national disgrace. No other advanced country conducts elections this way. Many European countries have instituted major restrictions on mail-in voting, specifically, because they recognize the nearly unlimited potential for fraud. Out of 42 European nations, all but two prohibit absentee ballots entirely for people who reside inside the country, or else they require those who need absentee ballots to show a very, very powerful ID.

Throughout the Democrat effort to dramatically expand mail-in voting, the Democrat party leaders were also, feverishly working to block measures, designed to protect against fraud, such as signature verification, residency verification, or voter ID. And citizenship confirmation was almost unthought of that we should ask for it. Can you believe this? These are not the actions of people who want fair elections. These are the actions of people who want to steal elections, who are willing to create fraud. The only conceivable reason why you would block common sense measures to verify legal eligibility for voting, is you are trying to encourage, enable, solicit, or carry out fraud.

It is important for Americans to understand that these destructive changes to our election laws were not a necessary response to the pandemic. The pandemic simply gave the Democrats an excuse to do what they have been trying to do for many, many years. In fact, the very first bill that house Democrats introduced when Nancy Pelosi became speaker, was it attempt to mandate universal mail-in voting and eliminate measures such as voter ID, which is so necessary. Dramatically eroding the integrity of our elections was the Democrats number one priority for a simple reason, they wanted to steal the 2020 presidential election. All of the Democrat efforts to expand mail-in balloting laid the groundwork for the systematic and pervasive fraud that occurred in this election.

In Pennsylvania, large amounts of mail-in and absentee ballots were processed illegally. And in secret, in Philadelphia, in Allegheny counties, without our observers present. They were not allowed to be present. In fact, they weren’t even allowed in the same room. They were thrown out of the building and they looked from outside in, but they had no way of even seeing, because there were no windows. And the windows that were there were boarded up. Democrats even went to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to block observers from receiving access. There is only one possible reason that the corrupt Democrat political machine would oppose transparency during the vote counting. It’s because they know they are hiding illegal activity. It’s very simple.

This is an egregious, inexcusable. And irreversible harm that stains the entire election, yet this unprecedented practice of excluding our observers, our vote watchers, as some people call them, occurred in Democrat run cities and key states all across the nation. Here are just some of the additional facts that we’ve uncovered. Many voters all across Pennsylvania received two ballots in the mail, and many others received mail-in ballots for which they never applied. So many get ballots, they didn’t even know what they were for. And again, so many received more than one ballot. In some cases, more than two ballots. And they happened to be, for the most part, Democrats.

In Fayette County, Pennsylvania, multiple voters received ballots that were already filled out. They didn’t know what happened. In Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, a poll watcher, overheard unregistered voters being told to return later to try to vote under a different name. Tens of thousands of voters across Pennsylvania were treated differently based on whether they were Republicans, or Democrats. Voters who submitted floored ballots in some Democrat precincts were notified and asked to fix their ballots, while Republican precincts, and in particular Republican voters, were not so notified which plainly violates the Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution.” If you are a Democrat, we’re going to fix up your ballot. make sure it’s perfect. If you are Republican, don’t even talk about it.”

In Michigan, a career employee of the city of Detroit, with the city workers, coaching voters to vote straight Democrat, while accompanying them to watch who they were voting for, violating the law and the sanctity of the secret ballot. You can’t do that. The same workers say she was instructed not to ask for any ID and not to attempt to validate any signatures. She was also told to illegally backdate ballots, many, many ballots, received after the deadline. This is something that is so unconstitutional and she estimates that thousands and thousands of ballots were improperly backdated by her and many others.

Other witnesses in Detroit also saw our election officials counting batches of the same ballots many times, as well as illegally duplicating ballots. One observer testified to seeing boxes and boxes of ballots, all bearing the same signature. Another observer in Detroit gave sworn testimony that he saw countless and valid ballots that did not belong to properly registered voters and then witnessed election workers in Wayne County entering fake birth dates into the system, in order to illegally count them. Witnesses of science wore an affidavit, so in other words, you go to jail if you lie, testifying that after election officials announced the last absentee votes had been received, a batch of tens of thousands of ballots arrived, many without envelopes, all voting for Democrats.

In Wisconsin, a record number of voters were categorized as indefinitely confined. A status reserved for severely disabled individuals, also for the elderly that allow them to vote without showing ID. Last year, approximately 70,000 people claimed this status statewide. This year, the number miraculously was nearly 250,000 voters, after election officials in Milwaukee and Dane County, a couple of the most corrupt political places in our country, urged citizens to improperly register under this status. And register they did in levels that don’t exist. In Wisconsin, there are approximately 70,000 absentee ballots that do not have matching ballot applications as required by law.

In Georgia, nine observers have testified to seeing countless irregular ballots without the creases or typical markings indicating that the ballots did not arrive in envelopes as required. A poll watcher in Fulton County estimated that approximately 98% of the large number of unusually pristine ballots that she witnessed were for Biden. Highly unusual number. In addition, thousands of uncounted ballots were discovered in Floyd, Fayette, and Walton counties weeks after the election, and these ballots were mostly from Trump voters. They weren’t counted. They were from Trump voters.

In Detroit, everybody saw the tremendous conflict and the horrible way that the two Republican canvassers were treated so horribly because they wouldn’t vote when they saw that 71% of the precincts didn’t balance. Also, there were more votes than there were voters. Think of that. You had more votes than you had voters. That’s an easy one to figure, and it’s by the thousands. In Arizona, in-person voters whose balanced produced error messages from tabulation machines were told to press a button that resulted in their votes not being counted. Also in Arizona, the attorney general announced that mail-in ballots had been stolen from mailboxes and hidden under a rock.

In Clark County, Nevada, where most of the state’s voters reside, the standards for matching a signature using the signature verification machine were intentionally lowered to allow large numbers of ballots to be counted that otherwise would never have passed muster. This machine was set at the lowest level. According to one report, in order to test the process, nine voters in Clark County cast ballots with intentionally incorrect signatures, and eight of the nine ballots were accepted and counted. They said you could sign your name as Santa Claus, and it would be accepted. Last week, the Clark County Commission threw out the results of a local election after the registrar reported finding, quote, “discrepancies that we can’t explain.” Also in Nevada, some voters were entered into a raffle for more than a dozen gift cards worth as much as $250 if they could prove they had voted.

This took place on Indian reservations. One of the most significant indications of widespread fraud is the extraordinarily low rejection rates for mail-in ballots in many key states. These are the states that I had to win. In swing state after swing state, the number of ballots rejected has been dramatically lower than what would have been expected based on prior experience. That means years and years of voting. In Georgia, just 0.2%, that’s substantially less than 1%, of mail-in ballots have been rejected. In other words, almost none have been rejected. They took everything. Nothing was rejected, practically, compared to 6.4% in 2016. There are those that think that 6.4 was a low number.

Think of it. Almost none were rejected. The previous election, 6.4% were rejected. We have seen similar declines in Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Michigan. Ballots weren’t rejected, especially if they happen to be in Democrat areas. These irregularities are inexplicable unless there is a deliberate effort to accept ineligible ballots or fraudulent ballots.

In Pennsylvania, the secretary of state and the state supreme court in essence abolished signature verification requirements just weeks prior to the election, in violation of state law. You’re not allowed to do that. It has to be approved by the legislature. A judge can’t do it. A state can’t do it. An official can’t do it. The only one that can do it is the legislature.

The reason for this is clear. They were not verifying signatures because they know the ballots have not been filled out by the voters in whose names they were cast. In other words, people filled them out that had nothing to do with the names on the ballot. A simple recount of the ballots under these circumstances only compounds the fraud. The only way to determine whether there was an honest vote is to conduct a full review of the envelopes in the relevant states. You will find that many of them, tens of thousands, have fraudulent signatures. A full forensic audit is required to ensure that only legal ballots from lawfully registered voters that were properly cast are included in the final count.

This election is about great voter fraud, fraud that has never been seen like this before. It’s about poll watchers who were not allowed to watch. So illegal. It’s about ballots that poured in, and nobody but a few knew where they came from. They were counted, and they weren’t for me. It’s about big leads on election night, tremendous leads, leads where I was being congratulated for a decisive easy victory. All of a sudden, by morning or a couple of days later, those leads rapidly evaporated. It’s about numbers of ballots that were sent that nobody know where they came from. It’s about machinery that was defective, machinery that was stopped during certain parts of the evening, miraculously to open with more votes.

It was about many other things, but above all, it was about fraud. This election was rigged. Everybody knows it. I don’t mind if I lose an election, but I want to lose an election fair and square. What I don’t want to do is have it stolen from the American people. That’s what we’re fighting for. We have no choice to be doing that. We already have the proof. We already have the evidence, and it’s very clear. Many people in the media and even judges so far have refused to accept it. They know it’s true. They know it’s there. They know who won the election, but they refuse to say, “You’re right.” Our country needs somebody to say, “You’re right.”

Ultimately, I am prepared to accept any accurate election result, and I hope that Joe Biden is as well. We already have the proof. We already have tens of thousands of ballots more than we need to overturn all of these states that we’re talking about. This is an election for the highest office in the greatest country in the history of the world. Every reasonable American should be able to agree, based on what we have already documented, that we need a systematic analysis of the mail-in ballots to review the envelopes. It’s about the signature. If they’re on the envelopes, we can only review the envelopes, and that will tell us everything.

This is the absolute minimum we should expect. This is not just about my campaign, although it has a lot to do with who’s going to be your next president. This is about restoring faith and confidence in American elections. This is about our democracy and the sacred rights that generations of Americans have fought, bled, and died to secure. Nothing is more urgent or more important. The only ballots that should count in this election are those cast by eligible voters who are citizens of our country, residents of the states in which they voted, and who cast their ballots in a lawful manner before the legal deadline.

Moreover, we must never again have an election in which there is not a reliable and transparent system to verify the eligibility, identity, and residency of every single person who casts a ballot, a very, very cherished ballot. Many very smart people have congratulated me on all we’ve done: the biggest tax cuts in history, regulation cuts, the biggest in history. We rebuilt our military. We took care of our vets like never before, Space Force, and so much more. Then they went on to say, as big and as important as these events were, the single greatest achievement in your presidency will be exactly what you’re doing right now: voter integrity for our nation. It’s more important than any of the things that we discussed.

If we don’t root out the fraud, the tremendous and horrible fraud that’s taken place in our 2020 election, we don’t have a country anymore. With the resolve and support of the American people, we will restore honesty and integrity to our elections. We will restore trust in our system of government. Thank you. God bless you. God bless America.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: We Now Know What William Barr Has and Has Not Been Doing

William Barr has been found and we now know what he has and hasn’t been doing. – What he has been doing is secretly appointing John Durham as a special counsel way back on October 19 and not telling anybody about it. His excuse for the secrecy was that it was just too darn close to Election Day and he didn’t want to influence the election, a consideration no Democrat would ever even entertain.

Thus, once again we see an establishment Republican demonstrate exactly why establishment Republicans are, as a class, a pack of surrender monkey losers.

The other little – or possibly big – problem with Barr’s skullduggery is that the special counsel statute clearly requires that special counsels must be chosen from among lawyers who are currently out of government. So, did Durham secretly resign before he was secretly appointed to be a special counsel? We don’t know because it’s a big secret.

Barr’s supposed reason for making this move was to make it much more difficult for Joe Biden – a person of interest in the investigation – to get rid of Durham and make all of his accumulated evidence go away. But if Durham did not resign his old office prior to being appointed, then an incoming Biden administration can simply dissolve his new office as being illegitimate under the law.

So all of this may amount to just one more William Barr head fake, another effort to placate Trump supporters by appearing to do something while in fact doing nothing.

Earlier in the day, we found out what Barr has been doing, which is apparently a big bag of nothing, at least as it relates to the massive voter fraud that undeniably took place during the 2020 elections. The Associated Press released an interview with Barr (why is Barr giving interviews to the AP at this moment in time?) in which the AG says he has seen no evidence of widespread voter fraud that would affect the outcome of the election.

He went on to say that “There’s been one assertion that would be systemic fraud and that would be the claim that machines were programmed essentially to skew the election results. And the DHS and DOJ have looked into that, and so far, we haven’t seen anything to substantiate that.”

Actually, there have been dozens of assertions to that effect submitted in sworn affidavits, but who’s counting, right?

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani lashed out at Barr in a statement:

In the campaign statement, Giuliani claimed there was “ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states, which they have not examined.”

“We have many witnesses swearing under oath they saw crimes being committed in connection with voter fraud. As far as we know, not a single one has been interviewed by the DOJ. The Justice Department also hasn’t audited any voting machines or used their subpoena powers to determine the truth,” he said.

And there you have the real truth of this matter: Barr hasn’t seen anything because he hasn’t been looking in any real way. Barr also attempted to wave off responsibility by using the old “wrong venue” claim that lawyers like to use, telling the AP that:

“There’s a growing tendency to use the criminal justice system as sort of a default fix-all,” he said, but first there must be a basis to believe there is a crime to investigate.

“Most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct. … And those have been run down; they are being run down,” Barr said. “Some have been broad and potentially cover a few thousand votes. They have been followed up on.”

This is all a load of horse manure. The FBI and DOJ have absolute authority to fully investigate any allegations of voter fraud taking place in a federal election and to pursue criminal charges against anyone guilty of what is a FEDERAL FELONY.

Let me tell you a little story about Box 13 and the infamous 1948 Texas U.S. senate election that Lyndon Johnson stole from Coke Stevenson via rampant voter fraud. It was the election that vaulted LBJ to national prominence and led directly to him ultimately becoming President 15 years later.

That election was a Democrat primary race – which at the time a was a de facto general election in Texas given the weakness then of the state’s GOP – and had been held on a Saturday. The initial results were so close that a recount was immediately ordered by the Texas secretary of state. By the following Friday, it became apparent to Johnson that he had to somehow find about 150 more votes in his name or he would be the loser and his political career essentially over.

So he called his good friend George Parr, the county judge of little Duval County in South Texas, to see if he could “find” another 150 or so ballots for him. Parr’s response to LBJ went something like this: “Lyndon, I’d love to do it for you, but you’ve asked so many times now that we have already reported more votes in Duval County than the number of people who actually live here, and we got FBI agents swarming all over us.”

Indeed, contemporaneous accounts of that stolen election invariably discuss the fact that the FBI was not only swarming Duval County but scouring the entire state, trying its best to root out voter fraud in real time. Why? Because it was a federal election, and LBJ and his cronies were committing federal felonies.

When LBJ wouldn’t take no for an answer, Parr said that maybe he could “find” the needed number of ballots over in Alice, the county seat of neighboring Jim Wells County, since the County Judge there was also a reliable crony. Lo and behold, on that Friday night, the Jim Wells County clerk “found” Box 13, a box allegedly containing more than 200 absentee ballots from that county’s 13th voting precinct, all of which had been miraculously cast for LBJ in a race that was dead even statewide.

Rumor has it that all 200+ of the ballots were written in the same handwriting and had been miraculously inserted into the box in perfect alphabetical order, but when FBI agents showed up at the Jim Wells County courthouse the following day to investigate, the clerk informed them that all of the county’s absentee ballots had been incinerated once they had been counted.

The point here is not that a Democrat stole that election – Democrats have been stealing elections in South Texas since time immemorial. It’s just part of the culture there. The point is that the FBI had deployed teams of agents working overtime to police a federal election in real time.

Today’s FBI has 1,000 times the resources that the agency possessed in 1948, yet it could not be bothered to lift a finger to work proactively to try to prevent any of the massive fraud we have all known was coming as a part of this election for eight long months. That sad reality can only be because the senior leadership at the FBI and the DOJ were just fine with this election being stolen by the Democrats.

Barr brags to the AP that his department continues to investigate valid claims of fraud in this election, but no one in the media is curious enough to ask him why he did nothing to prevent any of it from taking place. Perhaps that’s because they all know Barr has no good answer for that one, and they’re all fine with it, too.

That is all.
