Raffensperger Seeks Shelter From CNN and the Washington Post

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is severely compromised and needs to be removed. Unfortunately, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp also appears to be compromised, as we discussed over the weekend. Raffensperger entered into a probably-illegal consent decree with Stacy Abrams’ voter fraud subornation team last spring that he believes prevents the state from examining mail-in ballots for simple things like valid signatures and addresses. He appears to be desperate to keep that decree in force in order to ensure that Joe Biden “won” his state on November 3.

All of this compromise by Raffensperger led him yesterday to seek shelter with the corrupt news media, specifically with CNN and the Washington Post. In interviews with both fake news outlets, Raffensperger accused Sen. Lindsey Graham and other prominent Republicans of “pressuring” him to throw out ballots that he desperately wants to count.

From a story at the New York Times:

Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s secretary of state, on Monday accused fellow Republicans of trying to undermine the legitimacy of the state’s election in an effort to swing the results to President Trump, who narrowly lost the state to President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. and later demanded the hand recount.

Election officials in Georgia also announced Monday evening that they had discovered 2,600 ballots in Floyd County that had not been previously reported to the state, a notable but overall minor hiccup in what they otherwise described as a smooth recounting of the nearly five million ballots cast by Georgia voters during the presidential election.

The counting is expected to wrap up this week, and elections officials have reported few problems aside from the error in Floyd County, which is located in northwestern Georgia and voted heavily for Mr. Trump. Democrats said the recount had so far resulted in no substantive changes, at least none that would affect the lead currently enjoyed by Mr. Biden.

“The Floyd County situation was unfortunate,” said Gabriel Sterling, an official with the office of Georgia’s secretary of state. However, he added, “The majority of the counties right now are finding zero deviations from the original number of ballots.”

Mr. Raffensperger, in an interview with The Washington Post, said that Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was among those Republicans seeking to challenge legally cast absentee ballots with the aim of helping Mr. Trump take the lead in a state in which he is losing by several thousand votes. According to Mr. Raffensperger, Mr. Graham asked about possible ways that ballots could be disqualified, including whether the secretary of state could reject all absentee ballots in counties that had a high number of signature mismatches on those ballots.

A spokesperson for Mr. Raffensperger declined to comment when reached Monday evening. Senator Graham, speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill on Monday, denied that he had suggested to Mr. Raffensperger that he find a way to throw out legally cast ballots.

“That’s ridiculous,” said Mr. Graham, who said that his conversation with Mr. Raffensperger covered questions about Georgia’s system of using signatures to verify the identity of voters who use absentee ballots. “I thought it was a good conversation,” Mr. Graham said. “I’m surprised to hear he characterized it that way.”

Mr. Raffensperger, a lifelong Republican, was stung last week when Georgia’s senators, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, both ardent Trump supporters, called for Mr. Raffensperger’s resignation, accusing him of mismanagement and calling the election he oversaw “an embarrassment.”

[End]

In past elections, the rejection rates for mail-in and absentee ballots due to lack of valid signatures and addresses was about 3% in Georgia. In this election, that rejection rate fell to just .02% thanks to Raffensperger’s convenient deal with the Democrats and their voter fraud efforts. The difference in those two percentages would far more than enough to deny Biden his illegitimate “win” in the state.

There can be no doubt that Graham and Georgia Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, among others, have indeed questioned Raffensperger on why he has chosen to abandon the most fundamental methods of ensuring that ballots were cast legally in this election. Indeed, this was the very reason why the two Georgia Senators called for his resignation.

Raffensperger has no legitimate argument to support his collusion with the Democrats, which is why he has now resorted to seeking shelter with CNN and the Washington Post.

Someone really needs to take a very deep dive into Mr. Raffensperger’s background. His behavior is frankly inexplicable unless he is severely compromised where Dominion Systems and this election is concerned.

That is all.

No, Sen. Graham, There Can Be No Compromise With An Illegitimate Presidency

They’re coming for you, folks. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise. – All talk by the Democrats of unifying the country that we saw during the campaign has now gone up in smoke, replaced very quickly by talk of taking lists of Trump supporters in order to punish them for their sins over the last four years. And – no surprise at all here – they are being ably assisted by the creeps in the #NeverTrump RINO crowd.

Keeping this kind of list of political enemies and using it to punish them is of course a favored tactic of all despots down through history, including Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro and Hugo Chavez. It is just another part of the Marxist/Nazi playbook that the Democrat Party is now adopting as its own.

And – no surprise here at all – the leader of the movement is of course Alexandria Ocasio Cortez:

Here’s supreme #NeverTrump nitwit Jennifer Rubin, one of the WaPo’s pet fake conservative writers, helping to lead the charge:

And here is the pathetic RINO Evan what’s-his-name desperately attempting to make himself relevant somehow, some way to someone:

“We should keep and publish a list” said every Marxist/Leninist/Nazi despot in world history.

That is your Democrat Party today. Do not doubt me on this, as Rush Limbaugh would say.

Also no surprise at all is that the Cheese-eating Surrender Monkey caucus in the U.S. Senate is already making noises about surrendering to a Biden/Harris stolen presidency. – Because of course they are, and guess who the leader of this move is?

That’s right: Lindsey Graham. Take a look:

No, Biden doesn’t “deserve” a cabinet. He doesn’t deserve a damn thing. He obviously, blatantly stole this election, and Republicans should not spend a moment of their time on a single day in the next four years treating him and his designated successor as if he/she is a legitimate president. He is a usurper, an enemy of the people and the state, and should be treated thusly. And when he steps down at some point a few months into his term and is replaced by Kamala Harris, she should be treated the very same way.

That is how the Democrats treated Donald Trump for four long years, and that and nothing more is what Biden/Harris deserve from the GOP. Rather than surrender and deliver them a cabinet of their choosing, the GOP Senate majority should vote down every damn nominee whose political views lie to the left of Winston Churchill, for the good of the country. The senate majority should vote down every policy proposal that comes their way, reject every nominee to the courts, reject every treaty sent for them to ratify.

The senate majority should, for the good and survival of this nation, forget about legislating and spend every moment of every waking day holding hearings investigating every move made by Biden/Harris, just as the Democrat House majority has spent its time over the past two years. No Republican worth having that designation next to his or her name should concede a shred of legitimacy to the atrocity the Democrat Party is seeking to perpetrate on our country.

The evidence is clear and overwhelming at this point that the Democrat Party has systematically stolen this election through massive fraud involving millions of mail-in ballots. The proof of outright fraud is everywhere, and no Republican should ever for a moment treat a Biden/Harris regime as being legitimate in any way, shape or form.

To his credit, Graham did say later that he is not conceding that Biden has “won” the election. But the very fact that he is even thinking about “reaching across the aisle” to compromise with a political party that is attempting to execute yet another coup d’etat on American soil is unacceptable, and those of us who love this country must make that crystal clear.

No compromise is acceptable, because compromise with usurpers is nothing but surrender.

If we are now in the list-keeping phase of American politics, let’s all keep lists of every Republican we see spending a second of time “reaching across the aisle” and compromising with an illegitimate junta, and vote them all out of office in 2022.

That is all.

Plenty of Good News for the GOP in This Election

It’s morning again in America; not the morning we necessarily had hoped for, but one filled with hope and promise for the future, as America’s mornings tend to be.

With all the angst prevailing over the presidential race still being up in the air, let’s focus on the good news out of this election for the GOP, because there was plenty to be found.

Let’s start with the U.S. Senate, which appears to be destined to remain in GOP hands:

– Mitch McConnell rolled to an easy win in Kentucky;

– Lindsey Graham overcame $130 million in Hollywood/New York money funding his Democrat opponent to roll to a landslide, 12-point re-election;

– John James appears poised to take the Michigan seat from Democrat Gary Peters;

– Tommy Tubberville has re-taken the Alabama seat from Democrat Doug Jones;

– Steve Daines rolled to an easy win in Montana over heavily-funded Democrat Steve Bullock;

– John Cornyn ran up an easy, 10-point victory over his goofy opponent in Texas;

– Not sure this is “good” news, but even Susan Collins appears to have won her re-election in Maine.

All in all, these victories and others will be enough to secure a GOP majority in the Senate for the next two years. If Sonny Perdue can avoid a runoff, that majority will be at least 51 seats, and if James can hang on and if Kelly Loeffler can win her runoff against Democrat Raphael Warnock, the majority will remain at 53 seats.

Thus, the GOP Senate majority has been vindicated for its decision to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court and will now serve as a firewall against the excesses of a Biden/Harris presidency should that end up coming to fruition. This outcome was vital for the safety of the Republic, so celebrate this, even if it does mean we have to listen Susan Collins for another 6 years.

Meanwhile, in Texas… – One thing I actually got right was the fact that Texas was never really “in play” as an array of fake polls commissioned by various media outlets and opportunist universities tried to pretend.

President Trump will end up winning Texas by 6%, while Senator Cornyn and Republican Texas Railroad Commission candidate Jim Wright trounced their well-funded Democrat opponents by double digits. The GOP also retained its majorities in both houses of the state legislature and will retain 2/3rds of the state’s seats in the U.S. house.

Texas remains a reliably red state, and will stay that way for the foreseeable future.

***UPDATE*** One more thing I forgot to mention about Texas: Wendy Davis and Beto O’Rourke got smacked down one more time by Lone Star State voters. Abortion Barbie was soundly defeated in her race for the state’s 21st congressional district, losing to incumbent Chip Roy by 7% of the vote.

Irish Bob wasn’t on the ballot, but he campaign heavily for both Davis and M.J. Hegar, the weird woman who attempted to challenge John Cornyn. O’Rourke was also instrumental in convincing the national Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee to establish a costly office operation in Austin, throwing millions of good money after bad.

This outright repudiation couldn’t happen to a nicer couple of people.

But what about Florida? – Florida just keeps getting redder, and that’s a great thing for America. The President won that state by about 400,000 votes thanks in large part to his making major inroads with the Cuban/Venezuelan immigrant community in Miami/Dade County. The state’s Republican Party needs to work hard to ensure those new Hispanic voters are paid attention to in the coming years, because if they feel ignored and taken for granted, that progress could be quickly lost.

GOP congressional candidates also ousted a pair of Democrat incumbents in southern Florida, including the execrable old communist hack Donna Shalala.

Ohio sets its redness in stone. – Trump won this state by 8 points, and much of that phenomenon can be attributed to the state’s new focus on oil and gas production from the prolific Marcellus and Utica Shale formations. As in Pennsylvania, Fracking politics had a big role to play here.

Some other congressional pickups. – Republicans will not flip the House, but San Fran Nan won’t be expanding her majority, either. GOP challengers managed to flip several seats, with several more still up in the air.

From a story at USA Today:

Democrats are expected to retain control of the House of Representatives but optimistic projections that they would be expanding their already robust margin are falling short.

Instead, Republicans have enjoyed some bragging rights, unseating freshmen incumbents in South Florida, New Mexico, Oklahoma and South Carolina, while successfully defending what looked to be several vulnerable seats in Texas and elsewhere. And early Wednesday, the GOP claimed its biggest prize by knocking off 15-term Democratic Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota.

It’s a stark contrast to 2018, when Democrats picked up key seats — many in suburban areas — that helped flip the House from Republican control to a Democratic majority. Not all the news was bad, as Democrats were expected to pick up a handful of GOP seats, including two in North Carolina districts that were redistricted under court order.

[End]

The presidential contest will play itself out one way or the other, and if it goes the wrong way America will soon have its first woman president. But it may still go the right way, and there is nothing most of us can do about it one way or the other.

So, be of good cheer, folks, for all is not lost and there is much good news to celebrate today. Go live your lives to the fullest and keep your loved ones safe.

That is all.

Final Prediction: Trump Wins Again in America’s First Outrage Election

Let Freedom ring, let the white bird sing;
Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning;
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong;
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay; it’s Independence day! – Martina McBride, written by Gretchen Peters

Ok, here’s my final projection: Donald Trump will be re-elected in an electoral landslide that will easily eclipse his 2016 victory. Trump will win every state he won in 2016 – yes, including MI and WI and PA – and will add several other states to his column. Think Nevada and Virginia and New Hampshire and New Mexico.

Final tally: Trump 344, Biden 194. A clear and convincing landslide in America’s first Outrage Election.

The popular vote will be closer – much closer, thanks to the brainwashed masses in California and New York and Illinois and New Jersey, although Jersey will be closer than most people are thinking right now. Illinois will be closer, too. I still think Trump wins the popular vote, but barely, by a million votes or so.

Here’s the beauty part: Trump will have coattails, and those coattails will bring endangered GOP senators like Sonny Perdue in Georgia and Joni Ernst in Iowa and Martha McSally in Arizona and Little Lindsey Graham in South Carolina over the finish line despite the hundreds of millions in Hollywood/New York money that poured into the campaigns of their Democrat challengers. Couple those holds with pickups by John James in Michigan and Tommy Tubberville in Alabama, and what will be a very narrow loss by Cory Gardner in Colorado, and you have the GOP holding a 54 seat majority in the Senate for the next two years, an incredible upset considering they had 14 more seats up for re-election than the Democrats did in this cycle.

Now, here’s the bad news: The Red Wave likely will not translate to the GOP picking up a majority in the House, due mainly to incredibly inept campaigns run by R congressional candidates in Texas, Georgia and several other states. Unfortunately, the Republicans in those states chose to take the advice of the same pollsters that advise Democrats and have run campaigns in which you would never even know they are Republicans, always a losing strategy for the Rs.

The prime example of this is Genevieve Collins in Texas’s 32nd district, who is challenging Collin Allred in a very even district. Collins ran one of the most effective primary campaigns I have ever seen, prevailing over a strong field with ads that clearly identified her as the all-American anti-socialist Republican in the race who would go to Washington to get stuff done. Some of you may remember I predicted that, if she ran the same campaign this fall, she would take this seat back from Allred, who unseated longtime incumbent R Pete Sessions in 2018.

Sadly, Collins has listened to advisors who told her to completely shift in the general election, running as Collin Allred light, a non-partisan candidate with touch-feely messaging who you would never know was a Republican or conservative. Many other GOP candidates are obviously using the same polling and communications firms to advise them, and they will pretty much all lose in the even districts as a result.

So, keep an eye on Texas 32: If you see Collins winning tonight, then you are probably going to see a Republican majority ushered in in January. My bet is she will lose because she failed to distinguish herself from her very leftwing opponent with a 100% record of fealty to Nancy Pelosi. An incredible lost opportunity that need not have happened.

Whether the presidential election gets called tonight depends on the President being able to run up enough electoral votes in other states to make Pennsylvania irrelevant, given that the corrupt Democrat governor and Lt. Governor have already made it clear they will not even start releasing vote counts until Wednesday. That’s why the states to watch early will be Florida, Virginia and New Hampshire. If we see Florida and either of those other two states called for Trump tonight, then you can feel safe that it’s all over but the crying.

Early voting trends indicate that President Trump will win Florida by a significantly larger margin than he did in 2016, so it could end up being called much earlier than the wee hours of the morning that we saw four years ago. A Trump win in Virginia would signal a Red Wave of epic proportions, and such electoral waves do not stop at state borders – they roll nationally. My bet is that the much higher turnout by non-college educated white voters and higher percentage of black and Hispanic voters going to Trump (his Black vote percentage could be as high as 18%, double what he got in 2016) will make the difference, and the media that is hoping for a hung verdict to facilitate the Democrats’ post-election voter fraud plans will end up having little choice but to call the election before sunrise on Wednesday.

Disclaimer: I called every aspect of the 2016 election right, including the GOP waves in congress and the state houses. But I did miss on my prediction that the GOP would hold the house majority in 2018, so I have been wrong before.

Those of you who have read me for the past several years know that my theory on presidential elections is that they all come down to being decided based on national voter inertia, not on local issues as many pundits like to pretend. That inertia in the past has always either moved in favor of retaining the status quo, or wanting change. 2016 was a change election, and Trump won because he was the only true change agent in the race.

This year is the first time in my lifetime that is different. This election is neither a status quo or change election: This is our first outrage election.

This year has been more difficult to get a good handle on, complicated as it has been by the China Virus pandemic and the entire national news media/social media apparatus turning itself into a very real Nazi-style propaganda tool for the Democrats. The media’s wall of disinformation about the virus and the summer of Democrat-sponsored rioting that destroyed vast swaths of a dozen Democrat-run cities resulted in it taking a long time for the public to figure out which side to direct its focused outrage towards.

Over the past month, the public has figured it out, and millions of Americans are outraged by all the deception. The big turnout by non-college educated white voters who are sick of being portrayed in the media as privileged racists is one big indicator of this outrage, but it is not the only one. Also outraged by all the deception are the Black voters who are turning to Trump due to their outrage about having been pandered and lied to by race-baiting hucksters for half a century and more, and millions of Hispanic voters who are equally outraged by the media’s portraying them as a monolithic block with no diversity of thought.

That outrage, that focused anger towards the media and the utterly corrupt political establishment in Washington, DC, is what is producing America’s first Outrage Election, and it is why Donald J. Trump will serve a second term in office thanks to a resounding victory today.

I’ve been wrong before, but I don’t think this is one of those days.

God Bless all of you, and God Bless America.

Amy Coney Barrett’s Confirmation Finally Gives America a Reliable Constitutionalist Majority

It all went exactly according to plan. The senators all got their allotted time to pontificate and whine on the Senate floor; Mitch McConnell was able to sum everything up, excoriating the Democrats for their pathetic petulance and rank hypocrisy; 52 Republican senators did the right thing and voted to confirm the new Supreme Court Justice; 47 Democrats were joined by despicable RINO Susan Collins in voting against her; and finally, exactly one month to the day after she was nominated and eight days before Election Day 2020, Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in as the 115th associate justice to the U.S. Supreme Court by fellow Justice Clarence Thomas.

Happy Birthday, Hillary Clinton!

Image may contain: 2 people, people standing

You might assume I’m being facetious with that last comment, but if you don’t think President Trump insisted on swearing ACB in late last night instead of waiting to do it at a more reasonable hour today, you don’t understand Donald Trump. He fully understood the wonderful confluence of events he helped to create here.

Thus, a new day in America dawns with a reliable 5-4 constitutionalist majority on the Supreme Court that would be 6-3 were Chief Justice John Roberts not so obviously compromised and siding more and more frequently with the Court’s three remaining leftist activists.

But hey, 5-4 is all we need to secure the liberties guaranteed us under the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Our new Justice will be on the job today, probably showing up for work as I write this piece, and will have the ability to weigh in on every case the Court sees from here on out. Given what we know will be a massive effort by the Democrats to steal this election during the days and weeks after November 3, the presence of a 5th firmly constitutionalist justice is quite reassuring.

Regardless of how this election turns out – and signs continue to be that it will turn out well for President Trump – America is now blessed with the fact that Donald John Trump has appointed fully 1/3rd of the current Supreme Court roster and stands to very likely appoint at least two more during his second term. No president in American history has kept his promises in the way this President has done, and his promise to appoint strict constructionist conservative judges is chief among them.

In addition to his three sterling appointments to the Supreme Court, President Trump has now appointed and had confirmed a whopping 162 federal district court judges and 53 to the various U.S. courts of appeals. Even better, he currently has 53 nominees before the Senate, and 2 additional court of appeals openings left to fill before the end of the year.

What he and Mitch McConnell have achieved – together with Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham, who have chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee over the past four years – has been truly epic, a focus on filling vacant judgeships that is unprecedented in its successful execution. It is a legacy that will endure for decades. It is a stunning, consequential achievement.

We are seeing its fruits in the lead up to this election, with decision after decision by the federal courts to deny depraved Democrats in their crass efforts to extend vote-counting by days and weeks in various states so that their operatives can invent enough fraudulent votes to steal the presidency. Again yesterday, the Supreme Court denied an attempt by Democrats in Wisconsin to be able to “count” mail-in ballots that are postmarked up to 6 days after Election Day, an obvious attempt to engage in massive voter fraud.

In these decisions and so many others we see just how crucial Trump’s win in 2016 over the Pantsuit Princess truly was for our nation. Elections have consequences and no presidential election in our history has been more consequential than the last one.

Well, except maybe for this current one, that is. If we wish to preserve all of the incredible array of Trump accomplishments in office, he simply must win a second term in office given that Biden/Harris Harris/Biden have promised to move the clock back to 2016 in so many ways.

Which brings us right back to how important it was to get Amy Coney Barrett ensconced and working on the Supreme Court this week, where she can join four other reliable constitutionalist justices serving as a bulwark against the most extreme excesses of this communist Democrat Party and the ongoing betrayals by Chief Justice Roberts.

God Bless Donald Trump for her nomination and the 52 members of the U.S. Senate for confirming her.

Cancel the Amy Coney Barrett Hearings, Now

Just one more reason why these hearings should not be held. – Well, two reasons, actually, that the Democrats in the Senate provided to Mitch McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham on Monday. Two glaring reasons why the Judiciary Committee hearings on the Amy Coney Barrett nomination should be cancelled now, today, and the nomination should immediately be taken to the Senate floor for an up-or-down vote.

Reason #1 was provided by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who told fawning fake reporters that he and his fellow Democrats would boycott any votes in committee or on the floor related to the nomination. Ok, well, given that, what’s the point of hearings? If every member of the minority party has made up his or her mind on the nomination and will not even show up to vote on it, why allow this farce to go on?

As I’ve pointed out before, there is no requirement for the Judiciary Committee to hold these hearings. They are a matter of Senate process, not constitutional law. In the past, the point of holding such hearings was to vet the nominee and allow the committee to render a studied judgment on his or her qualifications for the job. The point of that judgment was so that the Committee as a whole could issue a recommendation to the full Senate on whether or not to confirm the nominee. Given that not a single member of the committee – Republican or Democrat – has an open mind on the incredibly well-qualified nominee, there is no point to holding these hearings.

Besides, Judge Barrett was just vetted for her seat on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals three short years ago, and was confirmed on a bipartisan vote. How much more does this committee need to know?

This takes us to Reason #2: The Democrats made a strategic decision at Monday’s hearing to simply turn it into a campaign event revolving around the Affordable Care Act, aka, Obamacare. Every Democrat on the Committee used their 10 minute opening statements as a commercial for the ACA and why they think it should be retained. Every one of them read comments written for them by some staffer, all based on the same ACA-centered talking points. Only a handful even bothered to discuss the nomination and Judge Barrett’s qualifications in any real way.

It’s a campaign event, not a hearing. They’re focusing on the ACA instead of their real driving issue – abortion on demand, including infanticide after birth – because Obamacare polls more favorably for them than abortion does. It really is that simple.

Thus, lacking any cogent, legitimate arguments why Judge Barrett should not be confirmed, they stage a campaign rally and then promise to take their ball and go home like that pathetic little kid who lived down the street from you when you were in second grade.

McConnell and Graham should take this childish behavior by their “friends” on the other side as an opportunity to invite them all to go home. If they wish to stage campaign events related to Obamacare, then they should pay for them from their own campaign funds. There is no valid reason for Senate Republicans to enable them and allow them to conduct this joint rally on government time.

This farce should end, now.

That is all.

Bartiromo: No Justice from Barr and Durham

I’ve been debating all day about what, if anything, to write about this morning’s news from Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo that her sources – who have been pretty reliable – are now telling her that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham have now decided that we are too close to the election for any indictments or reports to be issued prior to Election Day. Which of course is exactly what I told you to expect to be the case on Friday.

Using this excuse to hold up the execution of justice is itself a political decision and an intervention into the election on behalf of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden ticket, the preferred ticket of the Deep State. Let’s also point out that the one and only reason we have gotten “too close” to election day is due to the incessant delay and stalling by Barr and Durham themselves.

The incessant delays by Barr/Durham have been matched by the incessant delays by Lindsey Graham in his stewardship of the Senate Judiciary Committee and its activities since January 2019. Graham appeared on Bartiromo’s show this morning, bragging like a little banty rooster about how tough he’s gonna be on James Comey when he finally, at long last appears before the Committee to testify on Wednesday. Graham was practically wetting himself with pride as he informed Bartiromo and her viewers that he has also made a deal for Andrew McCabe to testify on October 6, and is “negotiating” with Peter Strzok to grace the committee with his presence later in October.

And…so what? After taking all this testimony, then what happens? Had Graham done all of this a year ago when he should have, he’d have been able to collate all the testimony, roll it into a formal report and make it public for voters to consume and consider well in advance of the election. But now, there is no time for any of that, and if Biden/Harris Harris/Biden win in November, it all gets washed away in any event, regardless of which party controls the Senate, which has been Graham’s grand plan all along.

The same will happen with Durham’s work in the event of a Biden victory, and if President Trump is elected to a second term, Durham and Barr will just keep finding excuses to delay and do nothing until the President becomes fed up with them both and replaces them. Given that the only new AG the senate would be willing to approve would be another Swampy guy just like Barr, that wouldn’t make any difference in the ultimate outcome.

The ultimate outcome is this: Trump is a man alone, and the Swamp can always outlast him. It’s time for all of us to give up on any notion that the Obama people who executed a coup d’ etat on American soil will ever be held accountable and to just focus on other matters.

That focus need to be on each and every one of us getting out and voting for Donald Trump, and against anyone with a D next to their name. Yes, that even includes the D running against Lindsey Graham in South Carolina, because as much of a worthless snake as Graham is, he is still light years superior to any Democrat.

The multi-tiered system of justice is too ingrained at the DOJ for any one president to cure, but what President Trump has achieved in spite of its existence and constant attacks on him and his administration has been far too sea-changing to give up now.

Even Barr has his usefulness despite his betrayal on Obamagate. His department continues to do yeoman’s work on disrupting and prosecuting human trafficking networks, arresting and prosecuting domestic terrorists and seeking out and disrupting Democrat vote fraud activities. And he’s getting all of that done with a worthless hack like Christopher Wray running the FBI. Just think of how much more he will be able to do post-election when Wray is fired and replaced with someone who is hopefully competent.

Keep your chin up and get out and vote and encourage everyone you know to do the same. If there is to be no justice from the Deep State, then we should ensure they get no peace for the next four years, and then for every four years after that until they have finally been rooted out.

We are engaged in a long, twilight struggle for the soul of this country, and it’s a fight we cannot afford to lose.

Why the Senate Should Confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett This Week

“I clerked for Justice Scalia more than 20 years ago, and the lessons I learned still resonate. His judicial philosophy is mine, too. A judge must apply the law as written. Judges are not policymakers, and they must be resolute in setting aside any policy views they might hold…I love the United States, and I love the United States Constitution.” – Judge Amy Coney Barrett yesterday.

That 100 word statement describes in a nutshell why Democrats and their America-hating toadies in the corrupt news media hate Judge Amy Coney Barrett and will do anything they can come up with to smear and slander her. The Constitution, and a strict interpretation of its actual words, has been anathema to the Democrat Party since Woodrow Wilson was elected in 1912. It is in fact a bane on that Party’s very existence.

With Senate Democrats lining up to announce they will not only oppose her nomination, but that they will also refuse to even meet with her when she makes the traditional courtesy visits to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and other key senators, Lindsey Graham announced on Saturday that his committee hearings on Judge Barrett’s nomination will start on October 12. If Graham is saying that publicly, then that means he has the sign-off from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to proceed with those hearings.

My only question is, why? Why are Senate Republicans agreeing to hold committee hearings at all on a nomination whose ultimate outcome is a fait accompli? No Democrat will support Barrett’s confirmation. Joe Manchin will make noises about doing that, but he will ultimately allow Chuck Schumer to bully him one more time into marching along with the rest of the Democrat Senate fascists, because that is what Joe Manchin does.

Meanwhile, with Lisa Murkowski now coming around in the face of a primary threat from Sara Palin, only one Republican Senator, Susan Collins (of course), is even implying she might not support Barrett’s confirmation before Election Day. Mitt Romney may ultimately fink out and cast his wormy lot with the Democrats just as he did in their impeachment scam, but that won’t be enough.

Mitch McConnell has the votes to confirm Judge Barrett to the Supreme Court on Monday. That would be the logical thing to do in this case since the Court convenes for its 2020-21 session on the first Monday in October, just 8 days from now. The goal of the U.S. Senate should always be that it acts as expeditiously as possible to ensure the Court always has its full compliment of 9 justices.

But what about the vetting process? Good lord, Judge Barrett was confirmed to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals just three years ago, and was thoroughly vetted at that time. She even received the confirmation votes of 3 Democrats – along with every Senate Republican, including Collins and Murkowski (Romney was not in the Senate in 2017) – for that high profile appointment. There is literally no valid reason at all for the Judiciary Committee to go through that process all over again.

The Democrats desperately want these hearings for the sole reason that they would then be able to create the same sort of character assassination circus that they did with Brett Kavanaugh and, to a slightly lesser extent, Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s first two nominees. McConnell has exactly zero obligation or duty to provide the Democrats that platform.

Many Republicans argue that the creation of another confirmation hearing slander circus would be bad for the Democrats politically, and that’s probably true. But this is a woman’s life we are talking about here. Politics should not be the main consideration. Judge Barrett is a wife and mother of 7 children, children who should not be subjected to the kind of abuse and smearing the Democrats and their activists will throw at them and their mother in the lead-up to and conduct of such hearings.

Judge Barrett is an extremely well-qualified jurist who has led an exemplary American life. There are no valid arguments to make otherwise. She also has already very recently been vetted and confirmed to a seat on a U.S. Appellate Court by the U.S. Senate.

The Judiciary Committee hearing should be cancelled. Judge Barrett should be confirmed this week and seated on the Court when it convenes on the First Monday in October.

That is all.

McConnell Should Deny the Democrats Their Judiciary Committee Circus

There is a growing debate over whether or not Mitch McConnell should discard the committee process on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee and simply take the vote to the floor of the Senate. Here’s why I support a middle ground position on that question.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no constitutional requirement for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on any nominee by the President. This is true of all positions, whether they be political appointees to run the federal bureaucracy or judicial appointees at the district, appellate and Supreme Court levels.

Here is the text of the Constitution’s Appointments Clause in its entirety:

“… and [the President] shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.”

Not a word in there about committees or hearings. The role of the Senate is to provide its “advice and consent,” on nominations, nothing more. That advice and consent can take any form that has the approval of a majority of current senators.

The committee process is nothing more than a construct of Senate rules and tradition. Democrats made clear they don’t give a damn about those things when Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer led the effort to end the filibuster for judicial nominees, a senate rule and tradition that had stood for well over a century. Schumer and other Democrat senators have also made clear that they plan to end the filibuster entirely the next time they gain a majority in that chamber.

So, to hell with Senate rules and traditions.

The nation’s voters have chosen to give the GOP a clear Senate majority in each of the last three election cycles, expanding that majority in 2018 after the despicable display the Democrats put on in the Judiciary Committee hearings related to Brett Kavanaugh. The corrupt news media studiously ignores the fact that each and every Democrat senator who participated in the smearing of Kavanaugh during those 2018 hearings and was up for re-election in a close race that year was defeated. It was the clearest statement of disapproval the voters could send of Democrat tactics – which included the active subornation of perjury by Christine Blasey Ford and others – that held the nation hostage for a week during those hearings.

Indeed, the Democrat conduct in Supreme Court nomination hearings has become increasingly depraved and demented related to every GOP presidential appointment since 1987, when Joe Biden – then chairman of the Judiciary Committee – led the dishonest smearing of Reagan nominee Robert Bork. Emboldened by that success, Biden-led Democrats conducted their “high-tech lynching” of Clarence Thomas in 1991, again including the active subornation of perjury by Anita Hill. Things have only gone downhill from that low moment.

If he has the votes to confirm the Trump nominee, why should Mitch McConnell allow the Democrats to put the nation and the nominee through what would certainly become another Kavanaugh-like smearing conducted by the likes of Kamala Harris and Cory Booker and Dianne Feinstein?

Some will contend that the cancellation of hearings would lead the Democrats to declare the nominee to be “illegitimate.” Well, hell, they did that with Kavanaugh. Who can forget Nancy Pelosi and Jabba the Nadler promising to impeach Kavanaugh after they obtained their House majority in 2018? We should not forget that kind of thing so quickly and easily.

Besides, Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Biden himself have already made it perfectly clear that they are going to smear the new Trump appointee as illegitimate regardless of the circumstances surrounding her confirmation. The tactic is going to be the tactic regardless of how the process is run.

With the announcements by Cory Gardner, Lamar Alexander and Rand Paul that they will support whatever confirmation process McConnell chooses to implement in the case of this nominee, it is now clear that the GOP has at least 50 votes to confirm the new justice before Election Day. Those votes, plus the tiebreaking vote by Vice President Mike Pence, are all McConnell needs to put this nominee on the Court.

So, why schedule committee hearings at all, given the short time frame and the pressing need to have a fully-constituted Supreme Court that could end up deciding the ultimate outcome of the presidential election?

Here’s why you schedule an initial hearing: To give the Democrats the chance to hoist themselves on their own petard. Democrats have all sorts of tools under Senate rules to try to delay the process. McConnell should work with Chairman Lindsey Graham to quickly schedule an initial hearing, and at the same time make it crystal clear that he will simply bring the nomination to the floor of the Senate if Democrats try to delay that process. Give them one chance to conduct themselves with the dignity that used to be expected from a U.S. senator, but give Graham the full authority to adjourn the process the moment the Democrats inevitably begin their effort to smear the nominee.

When that happens – and it would happen – McConnell should then immediately schedule a floor vote and deny the Democrats their circus.

Yes, the howls of outrage from the Democrats and their media toadies would be loud and fierce, but they are going to be loud and fierce regardless. This nomination and confirmation are an exercise in political power. For once, McConnell and his GOP caucus should exercise that power with no quarter given to their Democrat “friends.”

That is all.
