Sunday News Roundup: Mass COVID Protests in Europe as the U.S. Grapples With Democrat Election Fraud

While America was preoccupied with the outcome of a clearly stolen election, France is edging towards an open rebellion against the draconian Covid restrictions imposed by its socialist government:

Similar scenes are happening in London:

And this was Berlin on November 22:

Meanwhile, your corrupt, Democrat activist news media here in the U.S. was focused on things that are really important:

Holy crap.

If you think that Democrat governors and mayors have gone as far as they plan to go in restricting your constitutionally-guaranteed freedoms, boy are you going to be surprised.

Take a look at what the Democrat Governor of Kentucky is up to these days:

From the story at JustTheNews:

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear has filed an emergency appeal seeking to permit him to close religious schools throughout the state following an earlier ruling dictating that he lacks the authority to do so.

Beshear, a Democrat, last week ordered all schools within Kentucky to close down in the hopes that doing so would curb the state’s recent spike in positive COVID-19 tests.

Following that order, however, U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove ruled that Beshear lacked the authority under the First Amendment to shutter private and religious schools. “[I]n an effort to do the right thing to fight the virus, the Governor cannot do the wrong thing by infringing protected values,” Tatenhove said.

[End]

Beshear is just continuing the pattern among Democrat governors of using the China Virus as an excuse to rob Americans of their religious liberties, a tactic that despots like Andrew Cuomo and Gretchen Whitmer have honed into a virtual art form over the past seven months. There is no science underpinning this assault, no evidence whatsoever that any of the prior lockdowns or mask mandates have done a thing to slow the spread of this virus. If anything, the current outbreak of new “cases” of the virus is more intense in lockdown states than it has been in states like Florida and South Dakota that have avoided resorting to such measures.

There is only fear, superstition and a brutish grab for power by aspiring Central American banana republic dictators like Beshear and his colleagues. They will never relent until the people force them to relent. That day will come sooner or later. Let’s all hope it comes sooner.

It’s not just the weirdos who think this was a stolen election. – Patrick Basham, a professional pollster and director at the Democracy Institute, who makes his living analyzing election data, lays out a dozen or more oddities in the 2020 election results in an excellent piece at the Spectator magazine.

Here is an excerpt from that piece:

First, consider some facts. President Trump received more votes than any previous incumbent seeking reelection. He got 11 million more votes than in 2016, the third largest rise in support ever for an incumbent. By way of comparison, President Obama was comfortably reelected in 2012 with 3.5 million fewer votes than he received in 2008.

Trump’s vote increased so much because, according to exit polls, he performed far better with many key demographic groups. Ninety-five percent of Republicans voted for him. He did extraordinarily well with rural male working-class whites.

He earned the highest share of all minority votes for a Republican since 1960. Trump grew his support among black voters by 50 percent over 2016. Nationally, Joe Biden’s black support fell well below 90 percent, the level below which Democratic presidential candidates usually lose.

Trump increased his share of the national Hispanic vote to 35 percent. With 60 percent or less of the national Hispanic vote, it is arithmetically impossible for a Democratic presidential candidate to win Florida, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico. Bellwether states swung further in Trump’s direction than in 2016. Florida, Ohio and Iowa each defied America’s media polls with huge wins for Trump. Since 1852, only Richard Nixon has lost the electoral college after winning this trio, and that 1960 defeat to John F. Kennedy is still the subject of great suspicion.

Midwestern states Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin always swing in the same direction as Ohio and Iowa, their regional peers. Ohio likewise swings with Florida. Current tallies show that, outside of a few cities, the Rust Belt swung in Trump’s direction. Yet, Biden leads in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin because of an apparent avalanche of black votes in Detroit, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee. Biden’s ‘winning’ margin was derived almost entirely from such voters in these cities, as coincidentally his black vote spiked only in exactly the locations necessary to secure victory. He did not receive comparable levels of support among comparable demographic groups in comparable states, which is highly unusual for the presidential victor.

About that Dominion Systems… – The video below aired on CSPAN-3 in 2016. In it, an analyst matter-of-factly reveals how Dominion Systems software allows any user to go in and manipulate data in the system, including the changing of tabulated results.

But your gaslighting news media and social media platforms demand that you just ignore this video and pretend it doesn’t exist.

It exists.

Sidney Powell is still going after Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Sec. State Brad Raffensperger. – She’s like a pit bull once she latches onto a target, and these two RINOs are some of her favorite targets.

Powell appeared in an interview on NewsMax TV on Saturday, and again stated that both Georgia RINOs and their family members should be investigated for potential monetary benefits related to their signing off on the deal to use Dominion Systems hardware and software in the state’s elections. “There should be an investigation, a thorough criminal investigation, frankly, of everyone involved in acquiring the Dominion [Voting] System for the state of Georgia,” Powell told Saturday’s “The Count” hosted by Tom Basile and Mark Halperin.

Powell also alleged that other officials at the Secretary of State’s office may be culpable in unlawfully benefitting from the deal, which was entered into as a means of placating Stacey Abrams and her BS allegations of “voter suppression” stemming from her loss to Kemp in the 2018 governor’s race. “I think there are multiple people in the Secretary of State’s office and other that should be investigated in Georgia for what benefits they might have received for giving Dominion the $100-million, no-bid contract,” Powell said.

Powell’s hyper-focus on Kemp and Raffensperger is one of the more interesting aspects of this entire election controversy. It is highly doubtful she would continue to make these allegations unless she has some compelling evidence of wrongdoing in-hand, and the behavior of Kemp and Raffensperger in continuing to refuse to order the conduct of a true audit of ballots from this election only makes them more suspect.

The next two weeks in Georgia are going to be fun to watch.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: China Virus Propaganda and Democrat Election Fraud Proof Abounds

With Quid Pro China Joe and his fake Office of the President-elect now advocating a 6-week lockdown and shutdown of the entire U.S. economy, this seems a great time to remind everyone that today is Day 242 of Anthony Fauci’s “15 Days to Flatten the Curve” strategy implemented last March.

Yeah, let’s double down on that fiasco.

Today, we are being told that a national “mask mandate” would save 100,000 lives or more, not just by Biden people, but by Fauci and the snakes at the CDC. But my home state of Texas has been living under a mask mandate for the last five months, yet the number of new “cases” – a fake term with a constantly-shifting definition – has skyrocketed in recent weeks. The same story is true in many other states around the country.

Thus, what we are really being told by these corrupt puppets is that an utterly-failed strategy that has been in place for months will suddenly become successful and life-saving if only we make it a national mandate.

This is an utter, complete and blatantly transparent lie, just like pretty much everything else we have been told about this viral gift from China.

How reliable are those COVID tests? – Don’t ask me, ask Elon Musk:

Oh.

Meanwhile, Fredo’s big brother Andrew Cuomo comes out with this bit of propaganda, conveniently timed to support the Democrat Party’s effort to shut down Thanksgiving:

If you believe a word of this, you are a huge part of the problem in America today. Stop falling for Nazi-style propaganda, which is ALL THIS IS.

The only true things we have been told about this virus by government officials are:

– The virus is real;

– The virus is deadly;

– The virus is especially dangerous to certain specific groups of people in our society;

– The virus is not dangerous at all to about 90% of Americans;

Everything else we have been told, every “remedy” suggested by the Faucis and Birx’s of the world, has been nothing but Nazi-style propaganda aimed at implementing mass population control by despotic government authorities.

This will all only get worse in a Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration.

God help us.

You want prima facia proof of massive voter fraud committed by Democrats?  – Take a look at this statistic from Georgia: In that state, right at 283,000 ballots only contained votes for the presidential race. Of that huge number of ballots, 99.993% were cast for Joe Biden.

That is a statistical impossibility, no more probable than the huge ballot dumps in Michigan and Wisconsin of 6,000 or 23,000 or 138,000 ballots ALL marked for Biden. The odds of any of these outcomes happening in the real world are in the trillions to 1 against their being legitimate.

In their recount and audit, Georgia officials should pay special attention to those 283,000 ballots.

This was not the victory you may think it was…yet. – In Pennsylvania, a state judge ruled in favor of the Trump campaign that Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar illegally extended the election deadline, but only related to one specific manner.

From a report at JustTheNews:

A Pennsylvania judge on Thursday ruled in favor of the Trump campaign, ordering that state election officials cannot count ballots that were cast provisionally by voters who did not have proof of identification and then subsequently failed to provide ID by Nov. 9.

Existing Pennsylvania law states voters have until six days after the election – in this case Nov. 9 – to “cure” problems with a ballot, including a lack of identification.

But just weeks before the election, the state’s Supreme Court ruled that mail-in ballots could be accepted up to three days after Election Day, or through Nov. 6. By then Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar – just two days before Election Day –announced that proof of ID could be provided up until Nov. 12.

The state judge ruled that Boockvar “lacked statutory authority” to make such a ruling.

[End]

Note that this specific decision will only impact a few thousand ballots.

Some blogs and fake news sites falsely reported that this decision means that all mail-in ballots postmarked within three days after Election Day would have to be tossed out, but it does not address that issue at all. That postmark deadline extension – in direct opposition to state law – was implemented via judicial fiat by the PA State Supreme Court, not by Boockvar.

The Trump Campaign has filed a separate lawsuit challenging that ruling, and that suit will almost certainly end up being decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. As a result of an earlier suit challenging that ruling, Boockvar and PA election officials were ordered by the U.S. Supreme Court to segregate all such ballots pending the election results and an ultimate decision on that legal question.

In a state in which Biden currently “leads” by 54,000 votes, there are reportedly several hundred thousand such ballots that stand at risk in this particular lawsuit, virtually all of which were ostensibly “cast” for Joe Biden. Obviously, the Supreme Court decision in this case could end up being decisive.

Are you really sure it is “muscle” she is applying? – I just want to congratulate whomever it is that runs the Twitter feed for @TheHill for coming up with this particular characterization of nature of the…ummmm…heft Stacy Abrams is applying to her voter fraud efforts in Georgia:

No, it doesn’t seem like “muscle” is at play here at all.

Our Leftist Dimwit of the Week award goes to this gal:

Where in the hell was this woman hiding throughout the general election, during which both Biden and Kamala Harris repeatedly promised to shut everything down on the pretense that it would somehow help with the China Virus? Good lord – how does this pathetic wretch get her socks on every morning? Does she even wear socks? Who cooks her meals and brushes her teeth for her?

Truly, it is absolutely impossible to underestimate the intelligence of the average leftist.

BREAKING: Biden’s Chief of Staff agrees that elections are rigged. – Great catch by Jordan Davidson at The Federalist yesterday:

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s new chief of staff pick claimed publicly that U.S. elections are rigged.

In 2014, Ronald Klain publicly replied in agreement with a tweet by Vox advertising an article headlined “68% of Americans think elections are rigged.” “That’s because they are,” he responded.

Klain’s comments echo Trump supporters and Republicans’ concerns about election integrity in the most recent election. Contrary to the narrative pushed by the left’s communications arm, the legacy media, fraud and election violations have been discovered in several key states including GeorgiaPennsylvaniaNevada, and Michigan. Some of this fraud has allegedly concerned tens of thousands of votes.

[End]

Oh. You don’t say.

That is all. It’s all I can stand.

Limbaugh: Stacey Abrams at the Top of Biden’s Supreme Court List

Holy crap if true. On his show today, Rush Limbaugh – who sounds better than he has in months, in my opinion – told his audience that he has been told that the main reason why Creepy Uncle McWifeMolester doesn’t want to release a list of potential Supreme Court nominees is less complex than we might have imagined.

According to Rush, that reason is that the name at the top of the list is that of the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial looooooooooooser, Stacey Abrams. Despite having lost that election by well over 50,000 votes, Abrams has since spent her time parading around the country pretending that she, not the winning Republican, Brian Kemp, really is the governor of Georgia.

Abrams also tirelessly promoted herself as a, like, totally qualified vice presidential running mate for the Unfrozen Caveman Nominee, despite the fact that she has never won an election for a higher office than state representative. Biden’s elder-abusing handlers wisely steered clear of Abrams’ self-promotions, although it remains unclear if their pick of Kamala Harris will prove to be any less of a disaster than Abrams certainly would have been.

But Biden at least implied way back in January, when he was still fighting to have the nomination fixed for himself, that he had made some sort of arrangement with Abrams in order to obtain her support. If that deal turns out to have been to place her atop his list of possible nominees, it is simply inexcusable.

While Abrams does have a law degree, she hardly possesses the credentials to sit on the Supreme Court. Her entire experience as a practicing lawyer – which amounts to 2 years as a tax attorney, and 5 years as Atlanta’s Deputy City Attorney – is so unremarkable that her otherwise glowing bio at WikiPedia barely makes mention of it. Nothing wrong with being a tax lawyer, but it hardly prepares one to rule on issues facing the Supreme Court.

She has spent the rest of her undistiguished career in politics.

We don’t know if Limbaugh’s information is accurate, but he has a pretty strong track record that would lend it credibility. If Abrams’ name appears anywhere on Biden’s list – much less at or near the top of it – it is a travesty, and leaves no wonder at all why he is too embarrassed to make his list public.

That is all.

Two Former Army Officers Telegraph the Democrat Plan for Post-Election Chaos

This is the Democrat plan. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise. – Two seditious former Army officers, John Nagl and Paul Yingling, published an opinion piece yesterday laying out what to any ordinary American might seem like a fantasy scenario in which the U.S. military rolls tanks down Pennsylvania Avenue to remove President Donald Trump from office in the event of a hung election outcome.

Their scenario relies on the communist Democrat Party succeeding in extending the “vote count”, i.e., vote fraud efforts in key states all the way through next January 20. In that event, if no clear winner has emerged, the Constitution dictates that the Speaker of the House would become President. These two seditious officers lay out the following set of subsequent events should that happen, as reported by Byron York this morning:

From that, the two retired officers — one of them, Yingling, was a deputy of Gen. H.R. McMaster in the first Gulf War — concoct a scenario in which Milley must order troops into the streets on inauguration day. “The clock will strike 12:01 PM, January 20, 2021, and Donald Trump will be sitting in the Oval Office,” they write. “The street protests will inevitably swell outside the White House, and the ranks of Trump’s private army will grow inside its grounds. The Speaker of the House will declare the Trump presidency at an end, and direct the Secret Service and Federal Marshals to remove Trump from the premises. These agents will realize that they are outmanned and outgunned by Trump’s private army, and the moment of decision will arrive. At this moment of constitutional crisis, only two options remain. Under the first, U.S. military forces escort the former president from the White House grounds. Trump’s little green men, so intimidating to lightly armed federal law enforcement agents, step aside and fade away, realizing they would not constitute a good morning’s work for a brigade of the 82nd Airborne. Under the second, the U.S. military remains inert while the Constitution dies. The succession of government is determined by extralegal violence between Trump’s private army and street protesters; Black Lives Matter Plaza becomes Tahrir Square.”

[End]

York follows that bit of treasonous advocacy by saying “Whew. This is quite simply, fantastical, over-heated, crazy stuff.”

But it’s not. It is the actual Democrat Party plan for November through January.

With all due respect to Mr. York, what does he think the communist Democrat hyper-focus on mail-in ballots is all about? What does he think the communist Democrat efforts to instutionalize the clearly un-American concept of “vote harvesting” is all about? What does he think the advocacy by Kamala Harris and other prominent Democrats of ensuring illegal aliens get to vote is all about? What does he think the unending riots in Democrat-controlled big cities are all about? What does he think the constant media-generated hysteria over the China virus is all about?

Even more to the point, what does he think the communist Democrat drumbeat – led for the last year by the despicable losers Stacey Abrams and Beto O’Rourke – that the upcoming elections will be illegitimate because the Republicans are engaging in some nebulous, undefined concept of “voter suppression” is all about? Not “might be” – will be.

It is all about creating electoral chaos. It is all about creating the illusion of not having a clear winner even though we will almost certainly have a clear winner on the morning of November 4. It is all about creating the pretense for endless legal challenges to election results filed by the Obama army of Lawfare lawyers in the hopes that a clearly compromised Chief Justice John Roberts will ultimately side with the leftist minority on the court to simply declare the dementia-addled Joe Biden the “winner” amid a fog of media-created chaos.

This opinion piece from these two treason monkeys is not some fantasy: It is in fact a warning shot across the bow targeted at the current military leadership, advising them what the plan really is and intimidating them to follow along.

The communist Democrats have decided that the time for consolidating their century-long efforts to destroy the American Republic is now, this year. Everything they have done to undermine the legitimacy of the Trump Administration for the last four years clearly points to that reality.

This is the plan. Don’t kid yourselves otherwise. Get ready.

That is all.

The BLM Long Knives Come out for Val Demings

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Nobody’s immune from the BLM intolerance mob. – Val Demings, the former police chief of Orlando, Florida and current congresswoman from there, has been getting a ton of attention from the corrupt news media since she has been regularly mentioned as being on the short list to become the running mate of Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden. But in these days of the lunatic cancel culture, that kind of attention can be a dangerous thing.

Demings is finding that out the hard way this morning as she has now become the latest target of the leftist intolerance mob, led by Black Lives Matter. Specifically, she has become the target of one Hawk Newsome, who styles himself as the President of the New York Chapter of Black Lives Matter. Asked by a reporter about Demings, Newsome responded by saying “Joe Biden would be an idiot to put her on his ticket.’People are already on the fence about him. When black people become police officers, they are no longer black. They are blue. And I have been told this by numerous officers.”

Well, golly, there you go. See, to Black Lives Matter, Black lives don’t matter once they’ve turned “blue.” Just as the 30-40 Black lives that are snuffed out every weekend by Black gangsters in Chicago don’t matter. Just as the hundreds of thousands of Black lives that are ended by an abortionist’s knife in a Planned Parenthood facility every year don’t matter.

The only Black lives that matter to Black Lives Matter are Black lives that are politically advantageous to the Democrat Party.

That’s the truth about Black Lives Matter.

Ok, so, who’s next on that list? – Did someone say Senator Kamala Harris? Oh, yeah, girl, they’re coming for you next. Do not doubt it.

See, Kamala Harris spent years serving as the Attorney General of California, otherwise known as that state’s chief law enforcement officer. You think she isn’t “blue” in the racist, bigoted eyes of Black Lives Matter activists? Please.

Harris has already taken a lot of grief over the fact that, while serving in her previous post, she was an avid enforcer of maximum sentencing laws aimed at drug offenders, a disproportionate percentage of whom happen to be Black. Even better for the Black Lives Matter intolerance mob, there are all kinds of video and audio clips out there circulating around the interwebs capturing a smiling, mocking Harris in all her Willie Brown supported glory, bragging about sending all of those Black people off to prison for many years.

So, given that Biden’s handlers are under great pressure now to choose a Black woman to be their elderly, doddering candidate’s running mate, who does that leave on the list?

Well, there’s Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, whose official bio doesn’t really talk at all about what she might have achieved before becoming Mayor. But she spent several years in law practice and as a judge, so you kind of have to wonder what she might be trying to hide right now from the Intolerance Mob. She also was very critical of the recent riots that BLM helped to organize in her city, and, unlike her peers in Minneapolis, New York City, Seattle, Chicago and Portland, made aggressive use of her police force in quelling them.

Bottoms is now faced with even more rioting in her city due to another police killing of a Black suspect, whose only “crime” appears to have been getting drunk and falling asleep in his car, which was parked in a fast food restaurant’s parking lot. Given that Bottoms had her police out in force again last night, she’s obviously got a problem unless she backs off and lets BLM and Antifa set up an autonomous zone around CNN headquarters.

Then there’s Susan Rice, the pathological liar who served as Barack Obama’s National Security Advisor. Aside from being a very poor liar – which most Democrat voters consider to be a real qualification in a vice presidential or presidential candidate – Rice doesn’t appear to have any obvious “blue” disqualifications in her background, which has almost exclusively been spent in appointed political jobs.

As a result, Rice may win the Democrat Veepstakes by default unless something as yet unrevealed about her should come to light.

Should that happen, the Biden elder abusers can always turn their eyes back to Georgia gubernatorial looooooser Stacey Abrams. Abrams was all over the media this week, sadly admitting that she hasn’t received any calls from Biden’s handlers about the job, reminding everyone how eager she is to become the least qualified vice president in American history.

Keep your chin up, Stacey, there’s still hope!

Holy crap.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Win for Flynn, Loss for Gretchen, CORONAPANIC Lunacy and More

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – The DC Circuit Court of Appeals, in an extremely rare action, ordered corrupt Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan to personally respond to the Court to explain his refusal to grant the DOJ’s motion to dismiss the case against General Mike Flynn, which was filed on May 7:

Image

As appellate lawyer John M. Reeves (reeveslawstl) explained in a great thread on Twitter, writs of mandamus like the one Sidney Powell filed on Tuesday are most often rejected outright by a court of appeals. But, when not rejected outright, district judges are generally allowed to respond through  an amicus curae, an outside attorney appointed by the circuit court who would file a response on his behalf. In fact, that is exactly what the appellate court did in the U.S. v. Fokker case cited in this order.

The 3-judge appellate court panel could have also merely “requested” Judge Sullivan to respond; instead, it requires him to file his response within 10 days. This is an extraordinary demand by an appellate court of a district judge who has been on the bench for more than a quarter of a century and who, prior to his gross mismanagement of the Flynn case, had established a firm reputation for adhering to the law.

The 3-judge panel consists of Judge Karen Henderson, a George HW Bush appointee; Judge Robert Wilkins, an Obama appointee; and Judge Neomi Rao, an appointee of Donald Trump. We can be confident that Judge Rao will do the right thing, and that Judge Wilkins will parrot whatever opinion is written for him by a bunch of Lawfare lawyers. Thus, the entire matter will hinge on the judgment of Judge Henderson, who, if the order issued yesterday is any indication, is already highly concerned about Sullivan’s conduct.

And speaking of WINNING… – Staunton, Virginia, is a town that has trended Democrat for more than a decade, one that voted for Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self twice, and went for the Fainting Felon over Donald Trump in the 2016 election. GOP voter turnout has been depressed in recent election cycles, as Republicans have become discouraged, assuming the handwriting was on the wall.

But this week, everything changed. Three city council seats, all held by Democrats for years, were up, and the Republicans, in what one reporter called an outcome that was “stunning beyond words,” took all three seats from Democrats, riding a wave of record turnout. Thus, as the corrupt news media continues to crank out its fake polls – Fox just released another laugher yesterday – pretending to show Biden and the Democrats with substantial leads, the results of elections on the ground keep painting a very different picture.

And even more WINNING! – As we reported yesterday evening, Texas Congressman John Ratcliffe was confirmed by the full Senate yesterday on a party-line, 49-44 vote, to become the full-time Director of National Intelligence.

The courageous Grenell will now resume his job as full-time U.S. Ambassador to Germany. Every American should wish him Godspeed and be thankful for his outstanding work as Acting DNI. He has truly made a difference for the nation.

And hey, President Trump: If you want to make every leftist head in America explode simultaneously, how about firing Christopher Wray and making Mr. Grenell the Acting Director of the utterly corrupt Federal Bureau of Investigation? Wouldn’t that be fun?

Yeah, it really would.

Will this WINNING never end? – Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer, the aspiring banana republic dictator currently serving as Governor of Michigan, suffered another setback on Thursday when a county judge who, unlike her, has actually read the U.S. Constitution rejected her efforts to deny 77 year-old barber Karl Manke his right to cut hair.

From U.S. News and World Report:

The state health department failed to show that Karl Manke’s shop was a specific threat to public health, Shiawassee County Judge Matthew Stewart said.

Manke reopened his shop in Owosso on May 4, drawing customers from across the state who were inspired by his plea for freedom from a government shutdown. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said barber shops and hair salons are risky places because of the contagious virus.

Manke, 77, has received at least two tickets for violating Whitmer’s orders, and his barber license was suspended last week. Nonetheless, he said he’s still cutting hair — “Oh, heavens yes” — including the hair of a squirming 2-year-old Thursday.

“Listen, I’ve been in this business for 59 years. She wants to come cut my hands off, that’s another story,” Manke said in an interview, referring to the governor.

America needs more 77 year-old men like Karl Manke, and more judges like Matthew Stewart.

Gov Whitmer: “Dictator of the Week” Award

Biden team vetting more potential VP candidates. – Don’t look now, but Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden’s handlers, after starting the vetting process with Generalissimo Gretchen and Stacey Abrams, are also moving to vet more serious people, starting with Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.

Say what you will about Sen. Klobuchar, but she, unlike the Generalissimo, is actually someone who has qualifications to be president, which is something any Biden running mate would end up becoming within a few weeks after Inauguration Day due to Biden’s obvious, advancing mental decline.

The Biden handlers also leaked on Thursday the fact that they are also vetting Florida Congresswoman Val Demings. Unlike the loooooser, unaccomplished Ms. Abrams, Cong. Demings is an accomplished, serious person with 35 years in law enforcement. She rose from being a patrol officer to ultimately serve as Orlando’s Chief of Police for 10 years prior to being elected to congress in 2016. Yes, she’s a leftist, but at least she is someone who has had experience leading in a crisis.

While a Biden presidency would be an unmitigated disaster for the country in any event, it is somewhat reassuring that his handlers are at least beginning to consider some fairly serious people as his running mate. Don’t get me wrong: They’re all terrible people. But a Whitmer/Abrams level of terrible is a little more dangerous to everyone than Klobuchar/Demings level of terrible would be.

The push for Joe Biden to choose a black woman as his vice ...

CORNAPANIC LUNACY, Part I – The things we are doing in response to the virus are simply insane, as illustrated by this photo of a beach in La Grande Mont, France:

CORNAPANIC LUNACY, Part II – Horse racing is about to restart in Texas, but few will be there to see it. At Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie – which is in Democrat-controlled Dallas County – the bar and sports book, both entirely indoor facilities, will be allowed to admit fans and bettors up to 25% of capacity.

But the grandstand, which is outdoors in the warm sunlight and fresh air, will be kept empty. This despite several recent studies that indicate that warmth and sunlight help to kill the Wuhan Virus.

You just could never in a million years make this stuff up, folks.

Lindsey Graham to the Rescue? Don’t Count on it.

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

Ok. Now do Stacey Abrams. – In an interview on CNN last night, doddering, often drunk House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – whose eyebrows rise further up her massive forehead with each passing congressional recess – referred to President Donald Trump as being “morbidly obese.” First Lady Melania Trump thinks of the President more as being “pleasingly plump.”

You can’t win at this game, Madam Speaker. Neither can Ms. Abrams.

Is Senator Lindsey Graham actually about to hold an Obamagate hearing? – Don’t bet the farm on it yet, but yesterday the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee did at least schedule a hearing to debate whether or not to issue subpoenas to potential witnesses.

Of course, Graham set the agenda for his May 21 hearing in such a way to ensure that at least two more weeks would go by before the committee votes on the question. At that June 4 hearing, assuming the Republicans on the committee hold together (not a safe assumption in the RINO-filled Senate) to approve the question, you can be sure that many more weeks would then pass before Graham actually schedules additional hearing to begin questioning the witnesses.

From the Committee notice, here is the list of possible witnesses Graham will propose to subpoena to testify:

Graham is at least pretend-focused on the FBI’s code-named “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation that began in July 2016, and which led to the illegal spying operations on the Trump Campaign, Trump Transition Team and even into the Trump Administration. That spying was conducted under the aegis of four successive FISA warrants which the FBI fraudulently obtained based on the Steel Dossier.

If you think I’m being overly harsh on Sen. Graham, keep in mind that the South Carolina Senator has held the Judiciary Chairman’s seat since January 2019. Since well before that time, there has been plenty of information in the public domain to justify issuing these subpoenas and convening hearings on the matter. Yet, Graham has spent the last 17 months promising to hold such hearings on various Fox News programs, and then contriving excuses why he just couldn’t do so at that time.

It has been obvious for months now that his real plan was to get all the way through the end of this year – after which the Chair will go back to Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley – without having done a damn thing. But something or someone has obviously finally prodded Graham into at least taking this tentative first step.

When you look at how this process will likely play out, even if the Committee votes to move forward, it is highly unlikely to issue any findings until well into 2021, at the earliest. Think about it:

– The conducting of hearings with this many witnesses would consume weeks of time, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is not going to allow this committee to shift all of its focus away from its core responsibility of confirming Trump-nominated judges and administration officials;

– Under normal circumstances, the Senate would only be in session for about a third of the 190 or so days remaining between now and the end of the year. Ongoing issues related to the Wuhan Virus will dictate that it is in session for substantially fewer days than that.

– That means, under optimal conditions, the committee might – might – be able to finish taking testimony by Election Day, November 3.

– After that, you’re going to consume probably another 3 months just dealing with Democrat delaying tactics, not to mention lawsuits filed by the Democrats’ Lawfare army.

– Then, it’s going to take another 3 to 6 months to get a final report written.

Add that all up, and even if the minimum time frames mentioned above are consumed, you are all the way into May/June of next year.

Oh, and in case you’re thinking that, hey, at least Graham will be able to chastise these corrupt people in public hearings in the meantime, think again. It’s a very safe bet that Graham and his fellow RINOs will quickly agree to Democrat demands to hold the hearings during which testimony is taken behind closed doors.

Thus, Senator Graham will have accomplished his obvious goal of doing nothing to advance the cause of justice through his committee for his entire two year term as its chairman.

This is the DC Swamp at its worst.

That is all.

Democrats: You Could Never Make Them up, Not in a Million Years

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Some observations on the passing scene…

So, he’s just like Mitt Romney, then. – At the trial of big Democrat donor Harvey Weinstein on Friday, one of the monster’s many victims testified that Weinstein has no testicles.

The Junior Senator from Utah could not be reached for comment.

Do better, Utah voters. Please.

It was just another average day in Iowa for the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator:

Speaking of Quid Pro Joe, two days after President Donald Trump (I will never tire of typing those three glorious words in sequence) held a rally that attracted well over 15,000 in Des Moines, here is a high school gym in Cedar Rapids being set up for a Biden “rally”:

That’s right: There are about 40 chairs set up in circular formation on the floor of the gym. This is the guy who the nation’s corrupt news media and its Democrat masters want you to believe is such a threat that President Trump tried to rig the 2020 election against him with the Ukraine. Folks, Joe Biden is not even a threat to Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar.

Charlie Kirk makes a really strong point here:

Think about the ages of the House Leadership, combined with the ages of the three leading Democrat presidential contenders – Biden, Bernie and Bloomberg – all of whom are 77 or older. The average American worker retires before the age of 65, yet these elderly people still cling to power and seek even more of it as they approach octogenarian status.

Ask yourself why that is? Is it simply that political power is its own narcotic? Or could it have something to do with the fact that each and every one of these people other than Bloomberg somehow managed to accumulate massive amounts of wealth while never earning even a $200,000 annual salary?

The answer here is obvious. For those who play the game, being a certified denizen of the DC Swamp is its own reward.

And by the way, if you don’t believe the three old white guys I mentioned above are indeed the three front-runners for the Democrat nomination because that’s not yet who the polls say they are, take a look at the latest betting odds:

You can look at polls and cite them to me all you want, but I will tell you that the people putting down real, hard-earned money on who is the most likely winner of this clown-show nominating battle are a far more reliable gauge of how the race is really stacking up this far out from its conclusion. You should expect Bloomberg to continue to rise in this ranking as he plows through his personal fortune trying to buy the nomination, and the clearly infirm Biden to keep dropping.

But…but…but AOC says we’re all gonna be dead by 2030! – The increasingly insufferable loooooooser from Georgia, failed gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, told the always certain but always wrong prognosticator Nate Silver on Friday that she has a master plan for her life in which she will be elected president of the United States by the year 2040.

Given that the Democrat Party’s talking points on Climate Change variously claim that we will all be dead in 5 years or 10 years or 12 years or 6 years, depending on the day of the week and the phase of the moon, it seems like the Portly Petunia might be in need of speeding up her life’s timetable just a bit.

Democrats: If they didn’t already exist, no one could ever make them up, not in a million years. And honestly, who in their right mind would want to?

That is all.

Why Stacey Abrams and Beto O’Rourke Won’t Go Home and Run for the Senate

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

So, why aren’t the Democrat Party’s favorite “rising star” loooooosers running for the senate in 2020?– That is a question that is on a lot of people’s minds today, especially in Georgia and Texas.

In case you missed it yesterday, Georgia Republican Senator Johnny Isakson announced he would resign his seat at the end of this year, meaning that Governor Brian Kemp will be able to appoint his successor. However, although Isakson would not have been up for re-election until 2022, Georgia law requires the holding of a special election in November, 2020 to determine who will get to serve the final two years of his term. That means that both Georgia senate seats will be on the ballot in 2020, as Republican incumbent David Perdue is also up for re-election.

All of which makes many Georgia Democrats long for the second coming of their beloved loooooooser, Stacey Abrams. Abrams, if you’ll remember, lost her run for governor to Kemp last November by 56,000 votes, but has been running around the country ever since then claiming to be the rightful governor of Georgia. That utterly false claim has been echoed by pretty much every prominent Democrat in the country, everyone of whom fully knows they’re lying.

But hey, they’re Democrats. That’s what they do.

Abrams has been roundly characterized by our fake news media as one of the Democrats’ most promising “rising stars.” She was given the role of responding to President Trump’s State of the Union Address, a role in which she proved to be a rank mediocrity. She has been rumored to be a shoe-in to be Joe Biden’s running mate in 2020, assuming the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator still knows who he is a year from now.

So, you’ll have to excuse Georgia Democrats today if they’re all sitting around wondering, “Where’s our Stacey?” They’ve got not one, but two open senate seats now, and Stacey’s nowhere to be found. Indeed, within moments of Isakson’s announcement on Wednesday, an Abrams spokesperson made it very clear that “Leader Abrams” would not be running for his seat, just as she will not be running for Perdue’s seat.

The spokesperson gave us no idea as to what Abrams is actually the “Leader” of, other than her nascent effort to create even more vote fraud opportunities for Democrats in Georgia and all over the country. The spokesperson also did not elaborate on the reasons why Abrams refuses to run.

But the answer is clear: Abrams and her fellow Democrats cleared out every cemetery and drove every illegal alien in Georgia to the polls in 2018, and she still got clobbered by Kemp. If she thought she could win one of these senate seats, she would run. But she has no confidence that she could win either seat, or indeed any statewide election in Georgia.

Abrams also knows one of the most rigid laws of politics: a person can lose one statewide election in any given state and live to fight another day; indeed, you can even be your party’s fantasy hero. But lose two statewide elections in a span of two years, and your career as a viable political figure is well and truly done.

She’s a Democrat, so she’d much rather be the “Leader” of the next iteration of the famous voter-fraud factory ACORN for the next few years and see how things shape up in 2024, 2026 and beyond. It’s the only smart play she has.

We see the exact same dynamic at work with Irish Bob O’Rourke in Texas. O’Rourke’s pathetic presidential campaign has been dead in the water for four solid months now despite his continuing very strong fundraising efforts, yet he still plugs along, embarrassing himself on the national stage 3 or 4 times each week.

Meanwhile, incumbent Republican Senator John Cornyn is up for re-election in 2020, and he has yet to draw anything resembling a credible opponent from the Texas Democrat Party. Of course, that’s mainly because Irish Bob is the only thing resembling a credible opponent the Texas Democrat Party actually has on its roster.

But how credible would he be this time around? It’s obviously a question the clownish ex-congressman runs around in his own mind these days. We have to remember that, while he managed to come within 3% of beating Ted Cruz in 2018, Sen. Cruz is far less popular and far more controversial in Texas than Cornyn is. Running against Cornyn would be much more like challenging Gov. Greg Abbott, who easily won his own re-election campaign in 2018 by a comfortable 12 points.

And what about money? Would Irish Bob be able to raise another $80 million from all of his California supporters for a run against Cornyn? You can bet Cornyn won’t get caught flat-footed on that money situation like Cruz did last year, when O’Rourke was able to out-spend him by a 3 to 1 margin.

So again, Irish Bob was able to remain viable after losing one statewide election, so viable that, as late as January, it was reasonable to consider him among the favorites to win the Democrat nomination. But go back and lose a second statewide election, and Irish Bob would have a very hard time even going back to El Paso and trying to win back his old congressional seat.

So that’s why you folks in Georgia and Texas won’t be seeing the Democrat Party’s favorite looooooooooooser “rising stars” on the 2020 ballot. Far better to to be a fantasy “star” and live to fight another day than to be a two-time statewide loooooooooser with nowhere to go but down.

That is all.
