As expected, after dismissing a number of serious and legitimate charges, then setting an impossibly high bar, the judge in Kari Lake’s lawsuit against Democrat Katie Hobbs and Maricopa County ruled against her and ordered that the election stand. This despite the fact that it could not have been more obviously botched if it had been run by blind chimpanzees. The judge put a number of extra-legal conditions on the case, such as demanding that the plaintiffs prove not just that the election was fatally flawed (which they did), but that it was intentional (the point of which I don’t get: should voters simply accept elections that are fatally flawed by incompetence?)

The ruling was so one-sided and unfair, some observers voiced suspicions that it was ghostwritten by Mark Elias, the Democrat lawyer in charge of destroying election integrity.

For me, perhaps the most infuriating moment of the trial came when the Maricopa County Attorney claimed that “you reap what you sow” when you encourage your voters to wait until Election Day to vote, as if expecting to be able to vote on Election Day without facing hours-long lines and disenfranchisement is a crazy notion and somehow it's the voters’ fault. This person doesn’t belong in a position of public responsibility; he belongs in an unemployment line.

Displaying a mind-boggling level of gall, Hobbs and the Maricopa morons are asking for sanctions on Lake to make her pay their legal bills, accusing her of launching a “groundless, 70-page election contest lawsuit” against them.

The fact that it included 70 pages of evidence, sworn witness testimony and whistleblower complaints suggests that “groundless” is not the correct adjective. Indeed, during the trial, the judge did let the plaintiffs examine 113 random ballots and 42.5% turned out to be flawed in ways that rendered them illegitimate, primarily by being 19-inch ballots printed on 20-inch paper that couldn’t be read by the tabulators, for reasons that still remain a mystery. The "sanctions" are obviously an intimidation tactic, designed to scare citizens into giving up their First Amendment rights to free speech and to petition the government for redress of grievances when they believe their so-called "leaders" are abusing the system and lying to them.

Lake has vowed to appeal, and I wish her luck. In the meantime, I think the best summation of this verdict that I’ve heard so far came from a Twitter user who put it into one short sentence: “This is like the cops telling you they caught the woman who stole your car, but she gets to keep it and you have to pay for the gas for the next four years.”

    The above pretty much sums up why Mike is no longer electable or relevant.

    Surprised, unfortunately I believed a judge would actually be a non-partisan, neutral, smart person that would actually look at the evidence and thoughtfully consider the questionable actions that affected the outcome. Any appearance of tampering or tallying equipment not working properly should immediately bring the final calculations into question. Is this Judge concerned about this administration’s influence, or is he lazy, incompetent, partisan, or unqualified to hold that position. We have seen this problem with the Court system repeatedly since the last presidential election. If we can’t look to the Courts to fairly resolve these important issues, we have a country like Venezuela or Cuba. The people have nowhere to turn. It’s a sad and disappointing day.

    We all have lost a lot during this miserable election even if we do not live in Arizona...we have seen that cheating on elections is ok...a good thing to do...if machines were not reading ballots something is wrong....so sad...they should have done a re-do of the election in my book...sad...how can someone run for Gov. or anything anymore...I would not trust it (elections) ... crimes have been committed...Hobbs was head of elections...how can this be a good thing...overseeing your own election...

    I didn’t know if this was the right spot or not. But it’s about subscribing to your news letter. I would love but I don’t like that the company you are with wants to have access to my information and use it. This is why I have not signed up.

    Unbelievably sad....God will have the final say to those who call evil and lies good, and who promote lawlessness and wickedness. Lord, please help us as a nation to seek You and Your Son Jesus. He is the only Way, and Your ways are our only hope. Forgive us as a nation for our sins, Lord, and bring Your truth, righteousness and justice to our hurting world!
    God bless Kari Lake and God bless her appeal of this travesty of justice!

    We cannot let this stand, we have to stop them or the next thing that will happen is making us go to the gas chamber

    If you can Buy District Attorneys all across this land, then would you be surprised to learn that you can buy Judges also? The real scary concept of the Dems total control over this country is not that they got control by election integrity, but from financial infusion. Now, who has that much financial power?

    I am not a lawyer so I am not sure where the law stands on this. Yet it would seem to me the voters have grounds for a law suit. All those who were turned away from voting were denied their Constitutional right to vote. If that is the case then these voters need to file law suits. The people need to understand the "only" way we can get these kind of problems and others taken care of is they need to make a stand and under the law work at removing corrupt people out of office! And on election day remove all incumbents! On both sides of the tracks, especially those who will start a 3rd term or more!

    My take on the whole thing is: You can break any election law you choose as long as you don't do it with "malicious intent".
