MILLION MAGA MARCH

Saturday, thousands of Trump supporters massed in Washington for the Million MAGA March. It unfortunately turned violent when a few hundred Antifa and other leftist thugs showed up and started attacking people.

The disgusting assaults ranged from a woman running up and punching another woman in the back of the head to even more serious assaults and threats against individuals and even families with children. The violence continued after the march when rioters attacked Trump supporters who were eating dinner at a nearby restaurant, shooting fireworks at them that could have started a fire and proved deadly.

Epoch Times columnist Roger Simon happened to be on the scene, and he described an up-close encounter with these people. They struck him not as protesters or even political radicals but as “psychopaths” whose eyes reflected “pure evil.” He compared one of them to the Joker from “Batman.” His full account is behind a paywall, but you can read a lengthy excerpt here.

It doesn’t include the part where he says the Trump supporters could have ganged up on him and beaten him even more senseless than he already was, but they didn’t. They said, “Let him go,” and stood back. See, media: that’s what a “peaceful protest” looks like. They’re peaceful even when attacked.

I notice that the few media outlets that bothered to cover this outrageous attempt to violently suppress free speech referred to the attackers as “counter-protesters.” No, they were thugs. They were not there to “oppose fascism,” they were there to commit fascism. More than 20 were arrested, which sounds like an awfully low number, but maybe that will rise with all the video of the crimes they committed.

If Joe Biden, Heaven forbid, does become President, and he really wants to prove that he’s a “unifier,” then step number one would be telling his fellow Democrats who run the cities where these criminals are allowed to run amuck to start enforcing the laws and protecting citizens from their politically-motivated savagery. Otherwise, he’s likely to see a big rise in vigilantism because people will only stand there and be attacked for so long before they decide the police and the government aren’t going to help, so they’ll have to take matters into their own hands.

As law professor Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit likes to remind us, police weren’t invented to protect the public from criminals. They were invented to protect criminals from the angry public.


FEEL GOOD VIDEO OF THE DAY

A driver spit at a Trump supporter (during a pandemic, let us not forget), then tried to speed away. But Instant Karma (or “Car-ma”) got him and his Prius (of course!) before he traveled 20 feet. Watch it all for the perfect ending.

Incidentally, note what the Trump supporters did. They cheered and laughed at his predicament, which he probably deserved, and they chanted, “All that hate!,” which he definitely deserved. What did they NOT do? They didn’t drag him from his car and beat him within an inch of his life, as leftist protesters would have done to a Trump supporting driver for no other reason than that he was trying to get around them. In fact, I’m absolutely certain that if he’d been injured, they would have helped him and called 911.

Yet, in the “minds” of the left, and in the cherished narratives of the media, it’s Trump supporters who are violent fascists and the violent leftist fascists who are our moral superiors.

HOW THIN IS THE DEMOCRAT HOUSE MAJORITY

As the long vote count in Congressional races continues, it appears that my friend Burgess Owens has pulled into an insurmountable lead over Democratic Rep. Ben McAdams in Utah. That would mark the 12th House seat flipped by the Republicans.

At the link, Matt Vespa of Townhall.com discusses just how narrow the Democrats’ House majority is shaping up to be. If Nancy Pelosi does cling on to the Speakership, as of now, she could only afford to lose four votes on any piece of legislation, and it could get even narrower as the vote counting continues.

That probably won’t stop her from trying to force far-left lunacy down the country’s throat. But knowing that if this election was bruising for House Democrats, 2022 is likely to be a threshing machine, how many Democrats from red or purple states are going to be sacrificial lambs and risk their jobs to make the Squad happy (and if you’ve ever listened to them, you know that nothing short of the complete destruction of the United States is ever going to make them happy.)

ACTUAL FACT-CHECKING

The same people who constantly nag us, contradict us and slap “disputed” and “disinformation” banners on our every social media post, no matter how accurate, are now pushing false narratives about Joe Biden being the “President-elect” from the non-existent “Office of the President-elect,” and not only treating him as if he were already President, but arguing that somehow, Trump should be removed from office right now to install Biden. Some of the older ones argued the opposite in 2000, when it took 37 days for the Bush-Gore legalities to be settled.

That’s why everyone should take a deep breath and read this article by KrisAnne Hall at Western Journal.

It’s an explanation of some of the critical facts about electing a President that all of the so-called “fact-checkers” and their paymasters are getting wrong. For instance: no President in history has ever been elected in November as a result of the popular vote. This explains quite clearly how the process works, how long it takes, and what the line of succession is (and here’s some news to set your mind at ease: no matter what you hear, there is no way that Nancy Pelosi can be appointed as “acting President.”)


EXCITING NEWS

DURHAM, RELEASE YOUR FINDINGS --- TRUMP IS PRESIDENT

Question: Since when is Biden the President?

Trump has not conceded, and with the serious legal challenges to the highly suspicious vote in Philadelphia and Detroit –- to name just two cities –- and the questions surrounding the voting software used in those cities, plus the odd counting shutdown on election night, we don’t even know that Biden will be President-ELECT, regardless of what the media (and Biden) assume.

It may take weeks, perhaps even a decision by the Supreme Court about late ballots in Pennsylvania, if they’ll hear it.

Electors don’t meet until December 14. After listening to Democrats call Trump “illegitimate” for four years, with no evidence ever found of Russian “collusion,” he’s right to take steps to ensure the 2020 vote was on the up-and-up.

Also, recall that Biden pledged not to claim victory until the vote was certified.

Still, Sean Davis of THE FEDERALIST tweeted Sunday: “A source familiar with Durham’s ongoing investigation of the bogus Russian collusion operation tells [THE FEDERALIST]: Durham isn’t doing anything. Dropping his investigations. He’s worried about blowback from Biden. What an absolute disgrace.”

And it is indeed a disgrace, if it’s true. We all assumed that if Biden became President, the various investigations into how the FBI and others in the Obama administration lied and violated people’s rights to tie Trump with Russia would be shut down. Because, of course they would be.

But as of now, the vote count isn’t even certified and Biden has not been officially declared the winner –- let alone inaugurated. Durham is already “worried about blowback”? No matter what happens, Trump is still the President (sorry, Facebook!) until January 20.

If Davis’ source is correct, Durham might also want to think about the “blowback” if it turns out that Trump wins a second term. It could still happen.

As Victoria Taft reports for PJ MEDIA, even the NEW YORK TIMES a month ago reported that “Spygate” had fizzled. Her attitude about this development very much mirrors mine.

I just don’t know what’s going to happen on the right if this turns out to be true and no one is held accountable. For a long time, we assumed Durham would be the one to get to the bottom of Crossfire Hurricane. We’ve been reporting on the "Russia" travesty for Trump’s entire time in office. With so much evidence, how could it turn out otherwise?

But then time passed...and passed. We finally realized that nothing would be released before the election. (Gosh, we wouldn’t want to “politicize” the investigation by giving voters the truth, would we?) Still, we thought Durham was close to wrapping things up and would issue indictments, or at least a report, soon. Comey, McCabe, Brennan and others might actually pay a price for weaponizing the FBI and CIA against Trump.

Importantly, Davis said Durham has enough evidence to file charges but has apparently just been sitting on it. He also tweeted this: “A separate source who has seen the evidence compiled during the course of Durham’s investigation told [THE FEDERALIST] this afternoon that ‘there’s more than enough evidence to indict multiple’ involved in the Russian collusion hoax operation to take down Trump.”

Right now, it appears the swamp has won. “A possible Joe Biden administration is just a green light to return to the way things always were,” writes Bonchie at RedState.com. “It’s one of the worst aspects of Trump losing this election, if he does indeed lose it after the electors vote in December.”

To make it even more perplexing, we’re seeing this at the same time Trump attorney Sidney Powell is insisting that they’re “getting ready to overturn election results in multiple states.” She said this quite confidently on SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES, to host Maria Bartiromo.

Most of what Powell said involved Dominion Voting Systems, makers of the voting machines used in Philadelphia, Detroit, and other at-issue cities, and the software from Smartmatic. If she’s correct –- and she has a reputation for saying things she can prove –- it’s simple to change the tally. “We’ve identified mathematically the exact algorithm they’ve used,” she said, “and planned to use from the beginning.”

"They can stick a thumb drive in the machine, they can upload software into it even from the internet...from Germany or Venezuela even,” she said. Operators, “can watch votes in real time” and “can shift votes in real time,” or alleged bad actors can “remote-access anything.”

We’ve previously reported on Dominion Voting Systems, their fishy background, and problems with security that are built right in. Texas found numerous problems with them and turned them down for elections in their state --- three times.

The voting pattern for the country is extremely strange. How would the House flip 11 seats from Democrat to Republican and be positioned to keep the Senate when Trump seemingly lagged? Also, did Biden REALLY receive more votes than any other presidential candidate in American history, including Barack Obama in 2008? REALLY?

Dominion denies its machines were compromised, dismissing those allegations as –- here’s that word –- “misinformation.” But Powell says you can LOOK IN THE OPERATING MANUAL and see how this set-up can be made to do anything you want.

No matter how suspicious this looks, the problem is proving it. But Powell says she can. When asked for the specific proof, she said she has it but that it would be foolish to come out and say on national TV what it is.

Finally, we love this from legal expert Jonathan Turley: his comment on the lightning speed with which President Trump is being told to set aside his legal challenges. And this insistence is coming from...other lawyers.

"The media and legal analysts have declared no evidence of voter fraud to change the outcome,” he says. “The problem was that we had not even seen the evidence from the Trump campaign.”

He cites WASHINGTON POST columnist Randall Eliason, who came up with strategies for impeaching Trump that were so outlandish, they weren’t even used by the House Judiciary Committee. Eliason wrote that going after other attorneys who were defending Trump is “fair game.” Anti-Trump groups such as the Lincoln Project targeted those firms and tried to force lawyers to abandon Trump as their client. It got so bad, Twitter even blocked one of their tweets, not for targeting Trump (they’re fine with that) but for targeting other attorneys.

When Turley tried to talk to colleagues about just the POSSIBILITY that voting software or systems might be vulnerable to human error --- even allowing he’d seen no evidence of systemic problems --- he was rejected outright. Heretic! Turley hadn’t even alleged fraud, he says, but law professor Paul Campos likened him to a Holocaust denier (!) and called for him to be fired.

"The courts are supposed to be where reason transcends the rage outside,” Turley says. Trump’s case will likely wind up in the courts, with lawyers and judges, and it needs to be decided by reason, not rage. It’s the same with investigations. If Durham has the goods, he needs to present them, with no concern about “blowback.”

If he won't, Trump should declassify EVERYTHING that doesn't damage national security. Win or lose, let the blowback begin.

    Congratulations Mr. Huckabee. Your transformation is now complete. You have successfully transformed your website from a source for “news from a conservative point of view”, as you’ve so often described it, into a full fledged, far-right-wing propaganda site. Perhaps you’ll be rewarded with your own show on OAN or Breitbart, maybe even on both of them. Everything written in this day’s several commentaries is full of one-sided political spin and hyperbole in excess. But alas, I’ve little expectation you would ever agree to even reconsider your self-musings from any other perspective, whether your ramblings are actually self-believed by you or not. I can only take heed of the wisdom and sage advice found in Proverbs 26:4 and 26:5 when reading your intentionally misleading commentary as relates to your opinions. Understand however, that not all Christians and not all Republicans and not all conservatives agree with your perspective, nor do they think that Donald Trump was the near perfect President, virtually incapable of making an errors of consequence or worthy of ever being called out for and held accountable for his often outrageous behavior, inflammatory tweets and retweets, and numerous decisions of clearly questionable intent. History will be the ultimate arbiter of this season of life.

    Why are we concerned about 2024??? Really?
    We haven't gotten past 2020! Where is the Durham Report? Indictments? Prosecutions?
    What about the Integrity of the election process?
    Where are the Hillary emails that Pompeo promised to produce?
    Why do we have to put up with this nonsense?

    I am feeling harassed by the Trump campaign. I receive at least 40 to 50 texts, postal mail and emails per day!
    I have donated money through your website, so it appears they think I have not donated any money or they want more. They have more money than I do! I prefer to donate money to Food Banks and Meals on Wheels. Those people need the money more than a politician.

    The scene in DC looked like a Blackhawk Down with people exploding while under the influence of a hallucinating narcotic beating on innocent and decent people. When 4 people of the US were being murdered in Benghazi Hillary Clinton had the police stand down the Mayor Of DC has the same play book and used it to have peaceful people beaten on the streets of DC. The 2 women dress up put on the make up and indulge in liquor most of the day by the time they wake up the damage is done the police make a fake showing and head back to the dough nut shop just can't be bothered to protect the city. Gee its great to be a Democrat when your iQ is equal of scum it's future looks good it may take the next step and become a maggot.

    Joe Biden is a puppet toy most people with average intellect can tell that by listening to him for 55 seconds the first 50 seconds people are in disbelief, people wonder is this stuffed suit real or just a buffoon in a Hologram. Biden should just turn on his record player and tune in while locked up in his basement in The office of President Elect Fantasy Room. the sign doubles as his blanket. Joe can get his hypnotic cocktail and listen to tunes from Peter Pan and get back to La la land. This misfit will stay in the President Elect room for a few days another cocktail to keep him awake for an hour and a half and then time to Joe back in his office. Here is another fantasy 73 million people voted for this nit wit Rigggght, Not even the fools believe that.

    I do have a question about electing the speaker of the house and just how that works. Is it just the majority party that votes for speaker, or does the whole house vote ? If the whole house votes and the majority party splits there vote and the minority party all votes the same would it not be possible to have a speaker from the minority party?

    Biden is no more President (or even president-elect) at this point as I am the man's dog! Arf! Arf! It is revolting that he is playing along in this media fiasco! He is not much of a man or a decent politician!!!

    All of this fantasy just shows how much the radical left and the media are going to be able to control Biden, if his victory pans out! But then again, that is what they want - a yes-puppet. (I dare not call him a man.)

    Corrupt Cheating Politician (CCP) is the best way to describe him. Come on!!!

    Glad the DIMS' House margin is getting slimmer! IF Nancy is voted in as speaker, she is going to need those coordinating masks to hide her continual smirks! Hope she has plenty of paper to rip in order to release her frustration!!!

    Gov.,
    Sir, I agree with the concept that the election results are strange, too say the least. There was great excitement and interest in candidate Trump, but not so with candidate Biden (Ole Black Joe). How could Trump lose?

    The Senate and House elections are going about as expected in the absence of the non-Blue Tsunami, which was always a figment of the Marxist-Democrat's imagination.

    Here in North Georgia, we are stunned at the published results of the election. We are in disbelief. Our greatest fear is that Stacy Abrams would be come our governor in two years. She needs to go back to Wisconsin where she belongs!! Like most ALL immigrants to Georgia, she does not have or understand our culture!! This is NOT racist, it is all about the Marxist-Democrats moving their people to RED states to change them to BLUE!!!

    Barr-Durham will release “findings” only after potus-2021 is known.
    If Biden succeeds in stealing the “election,” then “findings” will be used to exonerate the subversive democrat guilty and then will be used as the basis of a future best seller : “How Corrupt Government Practices Win in USA.”
    If President Trump wins, then “findings” will be used to exonerate the subversive democrat guilty and then will be used as the basis of a future best seller : “How Corrupt Government Practices Should Have Won in USA.”
    “Unknown Somebodies” plan to laugh all the way to their offshore bank accounts.
    Democrats have positioned USA to discover the disastrous consequences of allowing “voting” by the vast population of gullibly ignorant.
