Voter Fraud Update
FiveThirtyEight.com reports that two more batches of votes were reported in Pennsylvania: about 5300 from Luzerne County, nearly 4,000 of which were for Biden; and 23,277 votes in Philadelphia, all of them for Biden. Yes, you heard right: he got 100% of the vote in that late-arriving batch of ballots. What a popular fellow.
In a related story, demands are rising for Pennsylvania’s Democrat Attorney General to step down from overseeing the election, since he declared that Trump was going to lose the state four days in advance.
Voter Fraud Update Part 2
Apparently, Joe Biden is so popular that people were rising from the grave to vote for him. That includes William Bradley of Wayne County, Michigan, who died in 1984 but was somehow able to cast a ballot for Biden in 2020.
To be fair, as the site at the link notes, there could be a different William Bradley still living in the same location who was also born in 1902 and, at 118, is the world’s oldest person. As the site also notes, Biden got 3 million more votes than Barack Obama did in 2008, which defies imagination. That’s a lot of zombies. And Republicans would have to be a lot of zombies to just sit back and swallow all this.
Today’s must-read editorial from the American Mind, on how the 2020 election is not over, and the fight is on:
“If Republicans let this happen without pushing to ensure all applicable laws were and are now being followed, they can forget about winning contested states and therefore national elections. The new rule, the new ‘norm’ for the Democrats, will forever be what they did last night: ‘If an election is close, we stop all the counting for a while until we can figure out what’s going on.’ But Republicans do not have to let it happen.”
We are lucky that we have a leader in President Trump who is a fighter, someone who has beaten back every dirty trick that’s been thrown at him, from lawsuits to bogus impeachment. The Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) will try to spin his refusal to roll over as being “dictatorial” or “authoritarian.” It is neither of those things. He’s fighting to ensure that our elections are fair, honest and trustworthy. If he fails, and Americans believe that the White House can now be stolen with voter fraud, then we will be no better than a banana republic.
VOTE CHICANERY IN MICHIGAN
President Trump isn’t the only one alleging vote chicanery in Michigan. Yesterday, we reported that Republican John James had defeated Sen. Gary Peters, but the next day, suddenly Peters had defeated James. James is also accusing local officials of impropriety, voter suppression and election interference. More at the link.
One interesting side effect of this week’s election, and the resulting fury over the accusations of it being stolen, is the confusion and consternation of our liberal elite class. Living as they do in a cast iron bubble, some are expressing shock and dismay at discovering that there are so many tens of millions of Americans who actually want Trump to be President. In their social circles, I’m sure they never come across a single Trump supporter (at least not one who dares to say so), which makes it easy for them to assume that while there must be some of “those people” out in flyover country somewhere, they’re all just dumb, racist hicks, right?
Well, the “shy” Trump supporters are not being shy anymore. They’ve put up with being insulted, doxed, canceled, expelled and threatened as they waited patiently to voice their opinion in the voting booths. Now that they believe even that is being stolen from them, they are, to paraphrase the movie “Network,” mad as h**l and they’re not going to take it anymore. They are standing up, waving their Trump flags and demanding to be heard.
Since they have never interacted with anyone outside their own bubbles, the smug leftist elites seem dumbfounded to discover that there are people who legitimately disagree with them and perfectly capable of expressing their views intelligently.
Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit posted a great example of this: a tweet from a bewildered leftist philosophy professor who asked, “Why did anyone vote for Trump? Anyone?”
Author Chris Arnande replied, “Cheap answer is, some people are frustrated that a professor of philosophy makes 3 times what they do for cleaning their house, or making sure they are supplied with electricity, or keeping them safe from muggers, or cooking them Pad Thai, only to then be talked down to and scolded.”
If only someone had written a book before Trump even ran in 2016, warning these coastal and media elites that they were completely out of touch with most Americans. Oh, wait, I did.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
On Sean Spicer’s show on NewsmaxTV, Republican political consultant Luke Thompson was talking about how 95% of the media were blindsided by all the support for Trump because they live in the same bubbles and never even talk to a Trump supporter. He said if they want to be the press for all of America, they have to look like all of America. They practice diversity by hiring people who look slightly different but are all from the same backgrounds and who think the same way. They need to have people from the South and Midwest, from rural and urban backgrounds. And then the killshot:
“As long as we’re still staffing newsrooms with the underwhelming middle children (of affluent families) who all went to Amhurst…it’s all going to be the same thing: they going to keep talking to themselves because that’s the world (they) know.”
SOME GOOD NEWS
Here’s a piece of good news from Tuesday’s election, and surprisingly, it’s from the People’s Republic of California. Despite the far-left tilt of that state, voters overwhelmingly defeated (by about 56-44%) a well-funded drive to repeal the state constitution’s ban on discriminating against or in favor of “any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.”
If you’re wondering why anyone would want to legalize discrimination, it’s because in the twisted world of leftist identity politics, where empowering black people means bringing back segregation, activists want the right to discriminate against some groups and in favor of others because they don’t care about being fair and equal to all individuals, they just want to judge everyone by whatever identity groups they happen to fall into.
The pro-discrimination measure was sold hard as an anti-discrimination measure, but fortunately, the majority of voters even in California saw through it. As noted at the Instapundit blog, surveys going back to 2003 have consistently shown that Americans favor basing college admissions on merit rather than racial or ethnic background by about 3-1.
SOMEWHAT RELATED GOOD NEWS
Another somewhat related piece of good news: percentages of black, Hispanic and other minorities who supported President Trump and Republicans went up, while minority support for Democrats fell. That might be an isolated factor due to Trump being on the ticket (which would be odd, considering the constant groundless accusations of him being a racist and a white supremacist), but I prefer to think that it represents a much-needed realignment, with minorities finally starting the reject the Democrat hivemind that’s caused so many problems for their communities for decades and take a closer look at the colorblind, personal freedom and empowerment philosophies of the Republicans.
That’s why I believe that despite losing her first race in Baltimore, Kim Klacik represents the future. She’s the living embodiment of a successful, inspiring, independent African-American conservative who refuses to be told to "stay in her place.” I hope to be able to cast a vote for her for President someday.
