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.

AOC, Goya’s Employee of the Month. – This is epic:

You gotta love that guy. Buy Goya any chance you get.

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.

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

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.

That is all.

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.

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.

Boom: Barr Converts Durham to Special Counsel in Russia Probe

Well, this is something. Minutes after disappointing Trump supporters – and no doubt President Trump himself – by saying that his do-nothing FBI/DOJ has found no evidence of fraud that would be pervasive enough to tilt the outcome of the presidential election, William Barr announced that he has formally converted U.S. Attorney John Durham to a Special Counsel in his investigation of the origins of Spygate and Obamagate.

This conversion will help to ensure that Durham will be able to continue his work in a new Biden/Harris administration, complicating the hell out of China Joe Potato Head Biden since he is without doubt a key person of interest in Durham’s probe. It will also give Durham access to all the budget, staffing and resource privileges that come along with the Special Counsel designation.

From a report at Fox News:

Attorney General Bill Barr appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham as special counsel to continue investigating the origins of the Russia probe in the next administration, Fox News has confirmed.

Barr appointed Durham as special counsel on Oct. 19—two weeks prior to Election Day.

Barr notified the Senate and House Judiciary Committees, in a letter dated Dec. 1 obtained by Fox News, that Durham would be special counsel.

“On May 13, 2019, I directed John Durham, U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, to investigate certain intelligence and law-enforcement activities surrounding the 2016 presidential election,” Barr wrote. “Although I had expected Mr. Durham to complete his work by the summer of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as additional information he uncovered, prevented him from doing so.”

“In advance of the presidential election, I decided to appoint Mr. Durham as a Special Counsel to provide him and his team with the assurance that they could complete their work, without regard to the outcome of the election,” Barr wrote, adding that he appointed Durham with “the powers and authority of a Special Counsel” on Oct. 19.

[End]

Law Professor Jonathan Turley had this to say about Barr’s action on Twitter this afternoon:

Thus, as has been the case throughout his term as Attorney General, Barr presents those who support President Trump today with a mixed bag of disappointment about his department’s failure to act on major scandals in real time and hope that the future could still produce some satisfactory results on another front.

The refusal of Barr’s DOJ and the FBI to really get involved in the single largest election fraud in American history will be a stain on Barr’s and Christopher Wray’s reputations for the rest of their days on earth. But his move with Durham today could, if Durham does ultimately produce real prosecutions of the criminals who tried to fix the 2016 elections and execute a coup d’etat on American soil, help to redeem Barr to a large extent.

As always with Barr, you have to take the bad with the good.

Before It Had a Vested Interest in Lying: Watch This CNN Bombshell Report on SmartMatic/Dominion

Still believe that everything is on the up and up with Dominion and SmartMatic, and that you’re getting the straight skinny from CNN and the rest of the nation’s corrupt national news media?

Well, take a look at this CNN report from back in the pre-Trump days exposing how SmartMatic and Dominion hardware and software were manipulated to throw the Venezuelan national election to socialist Hugo Chavez:

“Fewer than a dozen of the company’s workers are based in Florida. The majority of the company’s employees work out of Venezuela.”

U.S. Oil Industry Has Bigger Problems than Biden Fracking Ban

The U.S. oil business has bigger potential problems than Joe Biden’s promised fracking ban. There is no doubt that the Biden/Harris promise to ban hydraulic fracturing on federal lands and waters would severely hamper the nation’s oil and gas business sector.

In addition to curtailing about 20% of U.S. oil production that comes from federal leases, such a move would cause capital flight away from oil projects in the U.S., regardless of land type since it would send a signal that government policy in a Biden administration would present a high degree of risk and uncertainty. This is an outcome an already capital-strapped industry can ill-afford.

But as impactful as that potential problem would be, U.S. oil and gas producers face an even larger looming headache this morning: Uncertainty about the continuation of the OPEC+ agreement, the deal among large oil producing countries to limit output and exports onto the global market. The existence of that agreement currently has its member nations withholding about 7.7 million barrels of crude per day from the market. It is the main reason why the current U.S. benchmark price for West Texas Intermediate, which currently hovers above $45 per barrel, hasn’t collapsed back down below the $20/bbl mark.

Tuesday News Roundup: Arizona Shenanigans Show Why Trump is Fighting a Longshot Battle

Dear Joe DiGenova: You are not being helpful. – Why the President would entertain having Joe DiGenova as a part of his legal team in the election fraud fight is anyone’s guess. But it turned into a big fiasco during yesterday’s informal fact-finding hearing in Arizona. Jonathan Turley summed up my feelings on the matter pretty succinctly:

Not helpful, Joe. Not helpful at all. Go away.

As for the rest of that hearing, legislators in attendance heard tons of testimony from witnesses to the rampant election fraud efforts that went down in their state – especially in Maricopa County – on Election Day.  A parade of witnesses testified to abuse of the process by Democrat election officials and regarding the insecurities of the Dominion Systems machines and software in use in Arizona.

Unfortunately for the Trump effort, the only part of the hearing that got any traction with the corrupt news media was DiGenova’s idiotic outburst, so the hearing did little to advance the Trump cause. It’s important to note here that, like the hearing held last Friday in Pennsylvania, this was not a formal hearing called by the Speaker of the House or Senate President in Arizona, which would have been extraordinary given that the legislature there is not currently in session.

As a result, despite the promises given by the Republican members in attendance to seek a special session to reconsider the state’s process for choosing its electors, there is very little likelihood for that actually taking place, just as there is virtually zero chance that GOP legislators in Pennsylvania or any of the other states in question will summon the political will to act.

I have warned you all along that the courts are literally the President’s only chance at reversing these election results, and his court cases are long shots as well. That is not because his cause isn’t just – it clearly is – but because getting any legislature or court to act to do the right thing here requires an extraordinary act of political or judicial courage on their part.

The vast majority of GOP politicians and judges are cowards at heart. They talk a good game but seldom possess the courage to follow through in their official actions. There are 10 dozen Lamar Alexanders and Lisa Murkowskis in the GOP for every Ted Cruz or Rand Paul.

Any legislator or judge who acts to overturn these reported election results is going to come under withering assault from potentially violent leftist activists and the entirety of our corrupt media establishment. It is a rare politician or judge indeed who will be willing to invite such an assault on themselves and their family members by acting to do the right thing.

Instead, we are almost certain to see the public posturing by legislators we have seen thus far in PA, AZ and Michigan, but that will be followed by a decided lack of real action. Where the judiciary is concerned, the U.S. Supreme Court is really the only hope for the President and his supporters. We can be certain that John Roberts will timidly side with the three communist justices on the court, meaning that every one of the five conservative members would have to hold together in the face of the media/Democrat assault.

A new poll this week shows that 47% of Americans now believe – correctly – that this was a stolen election. But there remains very little good reason to be optimistic that any of the fraud will be reversed. That’s just  me dealing with reality, folks. You should all deal with it, too.

Here’s a great example of that sad reality. – Arizona Governor Mike Ducey, a nominal Republican, eagerly certified the state’s election results as the informal hearing was taking place, and promised to quickly swear-in Democrat Mark Kelley to take over the senate seat currently held by Republican Martha McSally, who Kelly supposedly defeated in the election. Because that’s the kind of thing fake Republicans like Ducey do.

Here’s an excerpt from a report at Mediaite, noting that Ducey apparently ignored a last minute call from the President himself while in the process of pandering to his Democrat masters:

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey received a phone call in the middle of a live broadcast of an election certifying ceremony that confirmed his state’s electors would vote for President-elect Joe Biden. Ducey blew off the phone call, which, judging by the ringtone and Gov. Ducey’s previous account, was a phone call directly from President Donald Trump.

That’s right. Trump appeared to make a last-ditch phone call to Gov. Ducey to keep him from certifying the election results, and the governor ignored the call. The most embarrassing part? It was captured on camera.

The moment was first noted by Arizona local news host Brahm Resnik, which the producers at Morning Joe cleverly cut with footage with Ducey’s prior admission that he had customized the ringtone on his phone to play Hail to the Chief every time President Trump rang him directly. As you can see and hear in the footage above, the incoming call’s ringtone is definitely Hail to the Chief. 

[End]

Note to Arizona voters: When presented by your state GOP with limp-wristed RINO candidates like Doug Ducey, just vote for the Democrat instead. You will be less disgusted with the results of your actions.

Over in Georgia, the Secretary of State who keeps bragging about how “secure” his election was, Brad Raffensperger, admitted on Monday that his office is investigating no less than “250 cases of credible claims” of election fraud.

From a report at DailyWire:

“As we move forward in the process, we will, as we always have been, we will continue to investigate credible claims of illegal voting and violation of state election law,” Raffensperger said. “There are currently over 250 open cases from 2020 and we have 23 investigators to follow up on that. Some of these include, a charge Gwinnett County that absentee ballots outnumber absentee envelopes. This is the kind of specific charge that our office can investigate and ascertain the truth.”

“We have multiple investigations underway surrounding absentee ballots in Fulton, Gwinnett, Cobb, and many others. We continue our investigations into potential dead, double voters, and non-resident voters,” he continued. “As we move to the December 1st election, which is tomorrow, and the January 5th federal runoffs, we have to remain vigilant.”

“That is why I’m announcing an investigation into third party groups working to register people in other states to vote here in Georgia,” he added. “We have opened an investigation into a group called America Votes who is sending absentee ballot applications to people at addresses where they have not lived since 1994; Vote Forward, who attempted to register a dead Alabama voter, a woman, to vote here in Georgia; The New Georgia Project, who sent voter registration applications to New York City, at Operation New Voter Registration Georgia, who is telling college students in Georgia that they can change their residency to Georgia and then change it back after the election.”

Raffensperger concluded the press conference by repeatedly reminding people that committing election fraud in Georgia, which includes voting in the state when a person is not a resident of the state, is a felony.

[End]

Oh. So, maybe the election wasn’t all that “secure” after all, huh?

Be careful about this one, though: Anyone expecting Raffensperger and his investigators to really conduct good-faith investigations of all of these myriad claims of fraud should remember that this is the man who has steadfastly refused to conduct anything resembling a real audit of absentee and mail-in ballots in his state.

This guy is part of the problem, not a part of any solution.

Good to see CNN latching onto reality here. – While all of that was going on, the despicable news-fakers at CNN suddenly discovered what the rest of us have understood since February: That China has not exactly been up-front with the rest of the world where COVID-19 is concerned.

Welcome to the party, pals!

It really is the alien’s, y’all. – Remember that metal monolith that mysteriously just appeared in the remote wilderness of Utah last week? Yeah, the Bureau of Land Management officials who discovered it found out on Sunday that it has just as mysteriously disappeared:

As if that weren’t odd enough, the dang thing seems to have just as mysteriously reappeared atop a hill in Romania:

I’m not saying it’s aliens, but…

The Ideology Now Running the Democratic Party Looks Like a Classic Cult

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

Every camera phone these days has a feature that can flip the focus from “selfie” to the outside world for a more conventional shot. All of it done with a quick touch to the screen.

That’s as good a high-tech explanation as any of projection in the psychological sense.

Apart from deliberate projection, which is regularly used as a political tactic as per Saul Alinsky, there is the more classic and unconscious projection that happens among true believers of the same ilk.

Take a look at what happens when one of those believers is caught telling the truth about what he’d like to do to Trump voters: DNC member David Atkins openly suggesting that 75 million Americans need to be “deprogrammed.”

While Atkins wonders how anyone could be a Trump supporter, many of us wonder how a leftist who may have been initially attracted to feel-good ideas like “tolerance” and “diversity” could publicly advocate forceful “deprogramming” of 75 million of his fellow citizens (in refugee camps? concentration camps?) for the sin of disagreeing with him about a political candidate. How does that happen?

Here’s a little of how projection works: Most of us are capable of powerful emotions. We also have emotions about our powerful emotions, which complicates matters even further. This can terrify people, especially if they already have trouble distinguishing between thoughts, feelings and actions. How could I have such horrible, evil, hateful thoughts? Does that make me evil too?

Among the variety of responses possible when emotions become too intense or painful for a person to tolerate is a kind of flip of focus — just like that camera. The subject disowns his uncomfortable or embarrassing feelings and quite unconsciously attributes them to others — often to the person or group on which he has already been so intensely focused.

It’s much easier to feel justified in advocating full-blown persecution of those he hates if he can view himself as a victim. To add insult to injury, this is all in the name of “tolerance.”

What happens when true victims of a paranoia-fueled vendetta are themselves called paranoid? How do we know who to believe?

Do you think leftism is like a cult?

Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha and the McCloskeys in St. Louis know firsthand how the propaganda media works full-time to confuse the public about who are the criminals and who are the law-abiding citizens.

The inability to distinguish or accept the origins of one’s rage is a building block of paranoia and persecution complexes.

A culture that positively values personal responsibility rather than collective guilt is infinitely healthier not just politically but psychologically.

Atkins goes on to project another charge against Trump supporters, claiming they are in a “death cult against reality & basic decency.”

If ever there were an ideology that resembles a classic cult, it is the leftism, socialism and communism of today, which now control much of what used to be the Democratic Party.

In 2017, I outlined some of the more obvious comparisons in an article about how liberalism is like a cult.

Cults feed and grow off collectivism and groupthink. That is why they must always demonize dissent, individuality and personal responsibility.

Remember when the left lectured us (when do they not?) about “Hate, hate — we have to root out hate!” That should have been our first clue that they were getting ready to unleash an avalanche of hate upon us, and they did.

The pattern is so often repeated that we can just about predict what they’ll do by watching what they accuse everyone else of next.

For his mental health and our safety, David Atkins and others like him need to flip their cameras to “selfie.” That, or take a good, long look in the mirror.

Monday News Roundup: Fulton County, Georgia is Ground Zero for the Creation of the U.S. Banana Republic

[Note: For those who need their dose of mind-numbingly fake news about Joe Potato Head Biden and his dogs, I’ve covered all of that nonsense in a separate story this morning.]

China Traitor Quid Pro Joe Biden and his team of anti-American globalist leftists will love this story from DailyWire:

Here’s an excerpt:

A Chinese sociologist recently delivered marks at a forum reportedly in Shenzhen where he declared that it was only a matter of time before China overtakes the United States and effectively puts an end to it.

The remarks from Dr. Li Yi were reported by MEMRI TV, a research organization that normally tracks Islamic extremism around the world and anti-Semitism.

The most inflammatory quotes from the speech include:

  • “It turns out that China is going to overtake the United States in 2027. It was said that this might be delayed for a year or two, but this year, God has pulled off a little trick, right? God created COVID-19 and spread it to every country in the world.”
  • “COVID-19 is bad for Europe and America, but it is beneficial for North Korea and China.”
  • “We still have 4,000 dead, right? But if 4,000 (Chinese) die versus 220,000 in the United States, we haven’t really lost a single person, have we? We’re close to zero infections and zero deaths. If 4,000 people out of 1.4 billion die, that’s the same as no one getting sick and no one dying.”
  • “In the global economy, China stands out. We are ahead of schedule in terms of overtaking the United States. There will be no problem reaching this goal in 2027. The U.S. will not survive.”

[End]

You can bet the people at Camp Biden are looking at each other suspiciously this morning, wondering who it was that leaked their entire plan for the next four years of foreign policy to this Chinese sociologist.

My goodness.

The Russians are all smiles these days, as well. – China isn’t the only enemy of the U.S. that will benefit hugely from a Biden globalist foreign policy shift: The Russians are all happy as clams these days as well. After all, Russia’s entire economy is dependent on its oil and natural gas industry, and Biden’s plans to demolish the U.S. industry will redound to Putin’s benefit to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars each year.

Oh, hey, here is Jen Pasaki, Biden’s candidate to become White House Communications Director, paling around with a John Kerry and a pair of prominent Russian officials while wearing a pink hammer and sickle hat a few years ago:

Hooboy. I’m guessing that a Biden Department of Justice won’t be appointing a special counsel to look into all of that Russia collusion.

Meanwhile, in COVID-19 world… – Look, y’all: Anthony Fauci has suddenly decided the schools should be reopened now that Election Day is safely behind us:

Literally everyone on earth who has been paying attention to all of this COVID nonsense knew all of what Fauci said on Sunday morning months ago. This man is a menace to our entire way of life, and his influence would only grow larger in a Biden administration. Truly frightening.

The Devil went down to Georgia, he was lookin’ for a vote to steal… – Lots of really bad stuff went down in Georgia on Sunday, where Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger did nothing as Fulton County election officials “reset” the Dominion voting machines in blatant effort to erase all records related to the general election from them.

They did all of that in spite of judge’s order to halt the process:

The initial claim from Raffensperger’s election officials was that they were resetting the machines – in the midst of a general election recount, mind you – to get them ready for the January senate runoff elections. When that lame explanation wouldn’t fly, election officials then began claiming late Sunday afternoon that the Dominion Systems Mobil server had crashed:

Here’s an excerpt from that story at 11Alive News:

ATLANTA — The push to complete a recount requested by President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign has hit a snag in Georgia’s most populous county as the statewide deadline looms.

Fulton County elections officials confirmed to 11Alive on Sunday that a newly-purchased Dominion Voting Systems mobile server had crashed earlier in the day.

“Technicians from Dominion have been dispatched to resolve the issue,” Fulton County officials said in a statement. “The Georgia Secretary of State’s office has also been alerted to the issue and is aware of efforts to resolve the problem.”

The county plans to resume its counting process on Monday morning. So far, Fulton suggests its teams have already concluded the counting of absentee, early in-person, and provisional ballots – 88 percent of ballots cast.

[End]

“Technicians from Dominion have been dispatched to resolve the issue.” Oh, boy, that really makes us all feel better, doesn’t it?

Once again, we see Sec. of State Raffensperger – with the willing cooperation of Governor Brian Kemp – conducting the very same sham, meaningless “recount” of the November ballots that has already been done once before. It does not include a real audit of those ballots, including signature matching, that would be needed to really expose the fraud. So, even though everyone should be outraged by the fact that the Democrat election officials were resetting the servers in the midst of the recount, the fact is that this entire process is another distraction by a corrupt Sec. State and Governor.

But because the corrupt news media refuses to report any of it honestly, they have no political price to pay for their betrayal of the American people. In the meantime, the fix is obviously already in for those January runoffs, and the Democrat election officials have no doubt already begun producing the “ballots” they will need to ensure that both of their candidates come out the “winners.”

Georgia has become ground zero for the establishment of the American Banana Republic.

For the Corrupt News Media, It’s All Dog News All the Time Where Joe Biden is Concerned

Some days it almost doesn’t pay to get up out of bed. – The big, breaking news stories involving Creepy Uncle China Joe Potato Head Biden over the weekend all had something or other to do with his dogs. See, he and his creepy wife Jill are planning to bring a couple of dogs with them to live at the White House, and your corrupt fake despicable leftist activist news media wants you to believe this is big news.

Oh, and he’s bringing a cat with him, too, for all of my fellow cat people out there.

You are expected to believe this is all very big news in order to distract you from the real news of more and more proof of massive Democrat election fraud coming to light, and to give the fake reporters an excuse to not report on all of that. See, the dogs are much more interesting.

Right? Right.

Anyway, just the fact of the dogs and cat coming to the White House in January wasn’t enough to keep up the charade, since no thinking person gives a damn about any of that. So it was that late on Sunday, “news” broke that Joe Potato Head had injured his ankle, or maybe his foot, or maybe both while playing with – you guessed it – his dogs! Because, dogs, everybody! Dogs!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!

Initial reports had Biden twisting his ankle, but that turned out to not be sensational enough to serve the media’s purpose here. The reports then morphed within a few hours to Biden spraining his ankle, but that wasn’t good enough either. The fake story just wasn’t getting any traction out there in social media land.

Finally, the media and the Biden people who had supposedly sat on the story for 24 hours before the shocking “news” broke, convinced his doctor to say that, although the initial tests showed no evidence of any fracture, follow-up tests now indicated that the elderly, dementia-addled presumptive president-elect had in fact suffered hairline fractures in a couple of bones in his spindly foot.

From a story at the Chicago Sun-Times:

President-elect Joe Biden fractured his right foot while playing with one of his dogs, an injury discovered in a scan Sunday and that will likely require him to wear a boot for several weeks, his doctor said.

Biden suffered the injury on Saturday and visited an orthopedist in Newark, Delaware, on Sunday afternoon, his office said.

“Initial x-rays did not show any obvious fracture,” but medical staff ordered a more detailed CT scan, his doctor, Kevin O’Connor, said in a statement. The subsequent scan found tiny fractures of two small bones in the middle of his right foot, O’Connor said.

“It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks,” O’Connor said.

End]

Wait, a boot? Hey, remember these other prominent Deep State politicians who ended up wearing boots just like the one Joe Potato Head will be wearing? Take a look:

John McCain's "Medical Boot" Mysteriously Swaps Sides ...

Report: Hillary Clinton and John "Songbird" McCain Under ...

Oh, yeah, you remember, right? Do you also remember how McCain forgot one day which foot to put the boot on and wore it on the wrong foot?

Take a gander:

No Reason for Dark Rumors About Sen. McCain's Walking Boot ...

Yeah, the ol’ medical boot trick to curry public sympathy. Good times…good times….

How long do you think it will take before Biden forgets which foot to put his boot on? His elder abusing staff has no doubt already assigned an entire team to do nothing but monitor the boot.

But that wasn’t all of the Biden dog-related news to which we were treated this past weekend. Oh, no, that unfortunately was just the tip of a fake news iceberg.

As Joseph Curl reports at JustTheNews, those fake stories were followed up by a real whopper at The Daily Beast:

From the “you can’t make this up” file comes this headline from The Daily Beast: “Joe Biden’s Dogs Have Told This Pet Psychic a Lot About Their Beloved Master, and His Future.”

The subhead says: “Pet psychic Beth Lee-Crowther says Joe Biden’s dogs, Major and Champ, told her they are excited to live in the White House. They also say their master will be ‘a great president.'”

Seriously.

“The Biden White House has sprung its first leaks,” the Beast piece says. “But what can be done when the leakers are the president-elect’s beloved dogs, and they are communicating telepathically with a pet psychic in the English Midlands?”

Lee-Crowther hasn’t ever met the dogs, but viewing their pictures, she said “she forged a close relationship with Biden’s dogs — and wow, did they ever dish about their owner, as well as a ‘ramping-up’ of his troubles with the non-conceding President Trump, moving into the White House, their master’s calmness, and even Biden’s plans to govern.”

[End]

So, friends and neighbors, this is the “normalcy” your corrupt, fake, anti-American news media wants to take us all for the next four years. I can already feel my brain cells melting away.

You are Being Gaslighted by the Media – An Explainer

Gaslighting Explained – Author Unkown

[NOTE: I received the explainer below in an email from a friend this week. It has been making the rounds in email and social media for awhile now, and is the best tutorial on the concept of “Gaslighting” I have seen. Thus, I want to share it with the audience of DBDailyUpdate. Unfortunately, I have no idea who the author is – If I did I would give him or her proper credit.]

 

“Gaslighting – The term originates in the systematic psychological manipulation of a victim by her husband in Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 stage play “Gas Light,” and the film adaptations released in 1940 and 1944. In the story, the husband attempts to convince his wife and others that she is insane by manipulating small elements of their environment and insisting that she is mistaken, remembering things incorrectly, or delusional when she points out these changes.

The play’s title alludes to how the abusive husband slowly dims the gas lights in their home, while pretending nothing has changed, in an effort to make his wife doubt her own perceptions. The wife repeatedly asks her husband to confirm her perceptions about the dimming lights, but in defiance of reality, he keeps insisting that the lights are the same and instead it is she who is going insane.

Today we are living in a perpetual state of gaslighting. The reality that we are being told by the media is at complete odds with what we are seeing with our own two eyes. And when we question the false reality that we are being presented, or we claim that what we see is that actual reality, we are vilified as racist or bigots or just plain crazy

You’re not racist. You’re not crazy. You’re being gaslighted.

New York State has twice as many deaths from Covid-19 than any other state, and New York has accounted for one fifth of all Covid-19 deaths, but we are told that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has handled the pandemic better than any other governor. But if we support policies of Governors whose states had only a fraction of the infections and deaths as New York, we’re called anti-science and want people to die.

So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

We see mobs of people looting stores, smashing windows, setting cars on fire and burning down buildings, but we are told that these demonstrations are peaceful protests And when we call this destruction of our cities, riots, we are called racists.

So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

We see the major problem destroying many inner-cities is crime; murder, gang violence, drug dealing, drive-by shootings, armed robbery, but we are told that it is not crime, but the police that are the problem in the inner-cities. We are told we must defund the police and remove law enforcement from crime-riddled cities to make them safer But if we advocate for more policing in cities overrun by crime, we are accused of being white supremacists and racists.

So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

The United States of America accepts more immigrants than any other country in the world. The vast majority of the immigrants are “people of color”, and these immigrants are enjoying freedom and economic opportunity not available to them in their country of origin, but we are told that the United States is the most racist and oppressive country on the planet, and if we disagree, we are called racist and xenophobic.

So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

Capitalist countries are the most prosperous countries in the world.  The standard of living is the highest in capitalist countries. We see more poor people move up the economic ladder to the middle and even the wealthy class through their effort and ability in capitalist countries than any other economic system in the world, but we are told capitalism is an oppressive system designed to keep people down.

So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

Communist countries killed over 100 million people in the 20th century. Communist countries strip their citizens of basic human rights, dictate every aspect of their lives, treat their citizens as slaves, and drive their economies into the ground, but we are told that Communism is the fairest, most equitable, freest, and most prosperous economic system in the world.

So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

The most egregious example of gaslighting is the concept of “white fragility”. You spend your life trying to be a good person, trying to treat people fairly and with respect. You disavow racism and bigotry in all its forms. You judge people solely on the content of their character and not by the color of their skin. You don’t discriminate based on race or ethnicity. But you are told you are a racist, not because of something you did or said, but solely because of the color of your skin. You know instinctively that charging someone with racism because of their skin color is itself racist. You know that you are not racist, so you defend yourself and your character, but you are told that your defense of yourself is proof of your racism.

So, we ask ourselves, am I crazy? No, you’re being gaslighted.

Gaslighting has become one of the most pervasive and destructive tactics in American politics. It is the exact opposite of what our political system was meant to be. It deals in lies and psychological coercion, and not the truth and intellectual discourse. If you ever ask yourself if you’re crazy, you are not. Crazy people aren’t sane enough to ask themselves if they’re crazy. So, trust yourself, believe what’s in your heart. Trust your eyes over what you are told.

Never listen to the people who tell you that you are crazy, because you are not, you’re being gaslighted.

Sophocles said: “What people believe prevails over the truth.” And that’s what the media are trying to exploit.

If you have read this far let me say one thing. I did not write the above and I am not sure who the author is.

I sent this to you because you are hopefully smart enough to understand what is being done to you on a daily basis from many directions.  I do not care about your political party affiliation. Just think through what you are being told.  Don’t listen with a deaf ear, or see with a blind eye.  Question everything  —  even things from people who you think you can trust.

Question why you are being told whatever, by whoever.  Question their motives. Question who benefits. Question if there is a hidden agenda behind the propaganda. Question, Question, Question.  Then do your own research, and use some of your own critical thinking skills to get to the truth.  Listen with your heart and with your mind.

Sadly, 95% of the masses don’t even know that they are being gaslighted.  At least now you do.

If this makes sense to you, then forward to your friends who you think might “get it”.

Saturday News Roundup: More Evidence of Massive Democrat Election Fraud Emerges in PA

They’ll do whatever it takes. – How far will your government, medical apparatus and academia go to prevent you from getting real, truthful information related to COVID-19? Well, as we have repeatedly seen over the last 8 months, they will go as far as they need to go.  Yesterday provided yet another clear and unambiguous example, courtesy of Johns Hopkins University:

From the report at JustTheNews:

Last week, Johns Hopkins University published a now-deleted article explaining a study examining the effects of the novel coronavirus on United States death totals using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Genevieve Briand, the assistant program director of the Applied Economics master’s degree program at Johns Hopkins, determined, in the study, that there have been 1.7 million deaths in the U.S. between March 2020 and September 2020, 12% (or roughly 200,000) of which have been coronavirus-related.

Briand posits that the only way to understand the significance of the U.S. coronavirus death rate is by comparing it to the number of total deaths in the country.

According to Briand, who compared the total deaths per age category from both before and after the onset of the global pandemic, the death rate of older people stayed the same before and after coronavirus. 

“The reason we have a higher number of reported COVID-19 deaths among older individuals than younger individuals is simply because every day in the U.S. older individuals die in higher numbers than younger individuals,” wrote Briand.

She also noted that between 50,000 and 70,000 deaths are seen both before and after the emergence of the virus, meaning that, according to her analysis, coronavirus has had no effect on the percentage of total deaths of older people, nor has it increased the total number of deaths in the category.

[End]

Note this unintentionally hilarious sub-header that accompanies the article:

The university stands by the study but said the article was leading to the spread of ‘misinformation’

So, the very essence of this article is that the rate of death among the elderly has not changed from what it was before COVID-19 came along and supposedly started killing them, but Johns Hopkins doesn’t want you to know that seemingly critical piece of information because they claim it is ‘misinformation’.

Hooboy.

You seriously could never, never, ever make this stuff up, folks. Not in a million billion years.

Our award for Utter and Complete Lack of Self-Awareness this week goes to… – Former CIA Director John Brennan, who delivered this little ditty on Friday after Iran’s chief nuclear bomb maker was assassinated, allegedly by Israeli agents:

In addition to Brennan’s typical siding with his fellow radical Muslims in Iran, it’s important to note that, as CIA Director for Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self, Brennan participated in the authorization of thousands of assassinations of foreign nationals and even U.S. citizens via drone bombings alone, and we have no idea of the total tally he racked up via assassinations committed via more stealthy means that are standard fare for the agency he led.

Brennan’s anger here has nothing to do with international “criminal acts” and everything to do with the fact that he and everyone else who served in the Obama administration detest the state of Israel. That’s all this is about.

Question: What in the hell were any of those people doing serving on the Defense Policy Board in the first place? – This also happened to little fanfare this week:

In all seriousness, why would any of those people have seats on this advisory board? Kissinger might have been a logical member 20 years ago when he could still think coherently, but Madeline Albright? Eric Cantor? C’mon.

But hey, maybe that’s why no one in the corrupt news media paid any attention to this particular bit of house-cleaning by President Trump.

Speaking of things the corrupt news media studiously ignored… – Take a look at this tweet from PA State Senator Doug Mastriano:

So, 1,126,940 ballots somehow just materialize out of thin air, and you are supposed to believe that this is nothing unusual, that it’s all just a part of a completely clean election process conducted by Democrat election officials in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh with no GOP oversight allowed.

This demands a clear and unambiguous explanation from those election officials. Sadly, it will most likely require a federal court order for one to be produced, because we know no one in the corrupt news media will bother to question any of it.

Speaking of massive Democrat election fraud… – Following Pennsylvania’s lead, GOP legislative leaders in Arizona will hold a fact-finding public hearing in Phoenix on Monday, according to a press release sent out by the Trump Legal Team on Friday:

The President’s legal team will be present from DC to assist in a fact finding hearing with select members of the Arizona House and Senate and a panel of experts. The goal will be to gather the evidence that justifies calling a special session to contemplate what happened and take immediate action accordingly.

“We are pleased that the State Legislatures in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Michigan will be convening hearings to examine the November 3rd presidential election,” Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump, Jenna Ellis.

State Legislatures are uniquely qualified and positioned to hold hearings on election irregularities and fraud before electors are chosen. As established in Article 2, Section 1.2 of the United States Constitution, State Legislatures have the sole authority to select their representatives to the Electoral College, providing a critical safeguard against voter fraud and election manipulation.

[End]

That’s all great, but if it isn’t followed up by firm action by both houses of the state’s legislature, all it will achieve is the provision of some level of sunlight on the various instances of voter fraud that took place in the state. It’s easy to hold these public hearings – it is far harder for the legislative majorities to summon the will to do something real about it all.

Which leads us back to Pennsylvania. – A couple dozen GOP members of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives produced a draft resolution on Friday, urging the state’s utterly corrupt Democrat Governor and other Democrat officials to “withdraw or vacate the certification of presidential electors and to delay certification of results in other statewide electoral contests voted on at the 2020 General Election”.

Taken alone, this amounts to nothing more than a good initial step. If these Republican legislators truly believe that this election involved massive Democrat voter fraud – and there is plenty of proof that it did – then they and their colleagues must summon the political will to act decisively when these corrupt Democrats inevitably ignore their resolution.

Constitutionally, the state legislatures have the sole and absolute authority to determine how their state’s electors are selected, and, as we have noted previously, the GOP holds majorities in both houses of the legislatures/assemblies in every one of the contested states except Nevada. If these Republicans are convinced their elections were illegitimately conducted, then they are duty bound to act accordingly, regardless of whatever political consequences they might suffer for doing so.

It’s nice to see all of these hearings and resolutions happening – they are, after all, key initial steps in what is a long and difficult process – but ultimately initial steps is all they must become if they are to have any real impact on rectifying the massive fraud that has been committed on our society by the Democrat Party and its media allies.

Nobody said this was going to be easy.

That is all.

Discussion Post – 11.28.2020

This happened on Friday, and it requires some explaining by PA election officials:

Note the ubiquitous Twitter disclaimer, which is wholly irrelevant to the subject of the tweet. But that’s what Twitter does these days.

Confused by Sidney Powell’s ‘Kraken’? One Blogger Simplifies it all in Graphics

If legal lingo confounds you, or you are like so many millions of Americans today and just do not have the attention span required to plow your way through it all, or you are just a dadgum visual learner like I am, you have likely been waiting for someone, anyone, to boil Sidney Powell’s “Kraken” lawsuit in Georgia down into a format that allows you to grasp exactly how overwhelming and legally powerful it really is.

Riding in on a white horse comes a guy named Doug Ross, who publishes an excellent daily blog of his own. Mr. Ross has applied his keen analytical skills and taken the time needed to boil the Kraken down into a series of graphics that even an old visual learner like yours truly can easily grasp.

Here are a couple of examples:

In all, Ross boils the essence of the Kraken down into 9 compelling and frankly overwhelming graphic slides.

Follow this link and go read and absorb the rest of them. If after doing so you still do not understand why the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies are investing so much time and energy in smearing Powell and her effort here, well, I don’t know what else to say to you.

The Kraken is very real and should be taken very seriously.

Stay tuned.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Justice Barrett Renders John Roberts Irrelevant as Sidney Powell Unleashes the Kraken

The Amy Coney Barrett confirmation is already yielding dividends. – In yet another decision in which compromised Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the three communists in the court, Justice Amy Coney Barrett provided the winning margin in a decision that tosses out some of Andrew Cuomo’s draconian attacks in religious freedoms in the state of New York.

Justice Barrett also was able to author the majority, 5-4 decision that rolls back Cuomo’s absurd restrictions that limits church attendance to as few as 10 people in certain parts of the state.

From a story at Daily Wire:

In a 5-4 ruling late Wednesday night, the Supreme Court backed a religious challenge to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s restrictions limiting attendance at religious services. The majority ruling blocks enforcement of the restrictions while the applicants pursue appellate review. The ruling highlights the lack of evidence that the applicants — the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyntwo Jewish synagogues, and an Orthodox Jewish organization — have contributed to the spread of the virus and questions the rationale of the specifics of Cuomo’s restrictions, which limited services to just 10 and 25 occupants for red and orange zones, respectively.

“Not only is there no evidence that the applicants have contributed to the spread of COVID–19 but there are many other less restrictive rules that could be adopted to minimize the risk to those attending religious services,” the decision reads. “Among other things, the maximum attendance at a religious service could be tied to the size of the church or synagogue. Almost all of the 26 Diocese churches immediately affected by the Executive Order can seat at least 500 people, about 14 can accommodate at least 700, and 2 can seat over 1,000. Similarly, Agudath Israel of Kew Garden Hills can seat up to 400. It is hard to believe that admitting more than 10 people to a 1,000–seat church or 400–seat synagogue would create a more serious health risk than the many other activities that the State allows.”

“Members of this Court are not public health experts, and we should respect the judgment of those with special expertise and responsibility in this area,” the ruling asserts. “But even in a pandemic, the Constitution cannot be put away and forgotten. The restrictions at issue here, by effectively barring many from attending religious services, strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty. Before allowing this to occur, we have a duty to conduct a serious examination of the need for such a drastic measure.”

“The applicants have made the showing needed to obtain relief, and there is no reason why they should bear the risk of suffering further irreparable harm in the event of another reclassification,” the ruling concludes. “For these reasons, we hold that enforcement of the Governor’s severe restrictions on the applicants’ religious services must be enjoined.”

Glorious. God Bless Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell and the majority in the U.S. Senate for confirming this good woman to the Court in the face of so much media news-fakery and hostility. Once again, we see perhaps the lone good reason to continue voting for RINOs over their communist Democrat opponents. This is one of the few places it still truly matters.

The Kraken is released! – Sidney Powell released her Kraken on Wednesday evening – a lawsuit detailing allegations of massive election fraud in Georgia and Michigan – and the book burners at Twitter immediately blocked any tweets linking to the lawsuit’s text.

So, just for fun, here’s a link to the text of the complaint. 

Many idiots in the media slammed Powell for not including her “evidence” supporting the claims made in the complaint, demonstrating conclusively that they have no clue about the difference between a complaint, which lays out allegations of harm, and a trial, where evidences supporting the veracity of the allegations is actually rolled out by plaintiffs. But hey, this is just par for the course for our corrupt national news media.

Here’s an excerpt from a story at Breitbart:

Attorney Sidney Powell filed lawsuits Wednesday challenging the results of the presidential vote in Georgia and Michigan, alleging “ballot stuffing,” which she alleges was “amplified and rendered virtually invisible by computer software created and run by domestic and foreign actors.”

Powell made similar claims last week at a press conference with President Donald Trump’s legal team. She was attacked by critics who claimed that she could not prove what she alleged. The legal team distanced themselves from her on Sunday, saying that her claims had gone beyond the evidence they had seen or could prove in court.

Powell — who also defended Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, pardoned by President Trump on Wednesday — accepted the decision but pressed ahead regardless.

She alleges in Georgia:

Mathematical and statistical anomalies rising to the level of impossibilities, as shown by affidavits of multiple witnesses, documentation, and expert testimony evince this scheme across the state of Georgia. Especially egregious conduct arose in Forsyth, Paulding, Cherokee, Hall, and Barrow County. This scheme and artifice to defraud affected tens of thousands of votes in Georgia alone and “rigged” the election in Georgia for Joe Biden.

Powell makes similar allegations in Michigan, noting an “especially egregious range of conduct in Wayne County and the City of Detroit, though this conduct occurred throughout the State at the direction of Michigan state election officials.”

Powell traces the fraud to “software and hardware from Dominion Voting Systems Corporation,” which she said derives from software created by “Smartmatic Corporation, which became Sequoia in the United States.”

She goes on to allege, in both the Georgia and the Michigan complaints, “Smartmatic and Dominion were founded by foreign oligarchs and dictators to ensure computerized ballot-stuffing and vote manipulation to whatever level was needed to make certain Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez never lost another election.”

[End]

So, a lot of the same stuff Powell has been alleging for a couple of weeks now, but this time in formal court filing that will ultimately lead to her having to present her evidence soon enough. She will certainly have plenty to present and talk about given that the lawsuit contains 30 separate allegations of fraud in Georgia alone.

Cool.

This should be epic. – Adding to the Georgia fun, President Trump told the assembled communist Democrat activists who call themselves the White House Press Corps that he will be holding a rally in that state on December 5:

As the Fox News chyron indicates, the President made that announcement as he criticized RINO Georgia Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger, who continues to to oppose the conduct of a real audit of the ballots allegedly cast by legal and living people in Fulton County. So odd that he would be so virulently against such a standard and innocuous election security procedure, isn’t it?

You can bet Raffensperger is all lawyered-up and anxiously waiting to see what Powell’s evidence is going to reveal about his own actions related to the November 3 election.

This is a long, long way from over, folks.

That is all.
