While ballots are still being counted in Michigan, President Trump is filing suit to stop the counting there until his team has the access to the process that they're reportedly being denied and that is required by Michigan law. His personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is probably on the ground there by the time you read this, getting a firsthand look at what's going on.

Trump has a substantial lead in Michigan as of this writing, but we've seen how even a big lead can mysteriously vanish as ballots keep appearing and continue being counted. Trump just wants to take the mystery out of this process and replace it with transparency. Anybody have a problem with that? And why, pray tell, would that be?


At this writing, we’re no closer to an outcome on the election count than we were late last night. I think President Trump will prevail, as some of the Biden-Harris vote in states like Pennsylvania is obviously fraudulent and, hopefully, will be revealed as such. But it has been clear to me for a long time that if Trump doesn’t win re-election, it’s mainly because of the relentless negative treatment he’s received in the media.

Never mind the brilliant economic turnaround (before a highly contagious virus spread from China) that benefited all demographic groups and the stunning foreign policy successes. Never mind his handling of the logistical nightmare of providing ventilators and other supplies around the country, and the amazing fast-tracking of a vaccine. Never mind that he was honest with us and did everything he could to keep his promises. Never mind that he was transparent with a rabidly hostile press corps, making himself available to them frequently on the White House lawn and answering question after question, knowing they would always find ways to twist what he said or attribute the “wrong” motives to him.

No, all those remarkable things didn’t matter, because Donald Trump was a Russian agent, a traitor to his country who collaborated with Vladimir Putin to get himself into the White House. He was a white supremacist, a misogynist, an all-around monster who put children in cages and drummed up stories about the pure and innocent Bidens for political purposes and tried to get his family investigated without any evidence at all! His tie was too long, his face too tan, and he ate too many scoops of ice cream. We knew that whatever he did in any given situation --- one thing or its exact opposite --- he would be trashed.

This is the totally made-up Donald Trump that the media presented to America over four-plus years. They never let up. They even hired disgraced members of the intelligence community to go on the air and lie about him some more.

Even now, social media is working to “cancel” him. In breaking news this afternoon (after all votes have presumably been cast), Twitter is still censoring Donald Trump’s tweets.

In a strange twist of logic, legal expert Jonathan Turley, a Democrat who is not a fan of Trump, is acknowledging the media’s constant negative attacks on Trump but using it to argue the opposite of what I just laid out above: namely, that their constant barrage of attacks actually HELPED Trump. Say, what?

On Wednesday morning, he said on “FOX and Friends” that the unrelenting negative coverage actually did Trump some good because “a lot of voters were turned off by it.” He said that if Trump wins, this will be why.

Anti-Trumpers will be quick to cast blame in creative ways if Trump wins. Ex-ESPN host Jemele Hill, sensing the possibility of a Trump victory, has already blamed white people.

Unlike Hill, who is just a racist idiot saying stupid things, Turley is a noted legal scholar who often makes great points. But I’m not buying this one. The voters who were seriously turned off by negativity in the media were the Trump supporters, who avoided it the way Biden tries to avoid the virus. But a lot of the negativity was subtle –- a derogatory line inserted here or there in a column about entertainment, fashion, or human interest. It was like a spice, flavoring the commentary on just about everything. People in the middle, the ones who didn’t live on a steady diet of CNN and MSNBC, might not have seen much of the really hateful stuff but were constantly exposed to subtle digs at Trump. Dig, dig, dig. This was inescapable. It would be hard not conclude that he must be a bad guy.

The anti-Trump media also helped Biden immensely by minimizing or downright ignoring stories about alleged corruption, and also the ones about violence in “blue” cities and the failure of law enforcement there. Antifa arsonists are still being released without bail –- think CNN will dwell on this?

Suspects released without bail after Antifa-supporters nearly burn down occupied apartment complex

As for the most hateful and disgusting (and phony) anti-Trump coverage, Democrats and never-Trumpers ate it up with a spoon. It energized them. I believe this atmosphere of intense hate is what drove many of them to go to the polls and stand in long lines. (It also might have driven them to manufacture thousands of fake mail-in ballots, or lose real ones, in key districts.) These people weren’t voting for feeble old Joe Biden –- they were voting AGAINST TRUMP. So, no, I don’t agree with Turley’s assessment at all.

If Trump wins, it will be no thanks to the media but because he and his team were able to overcome the chaos and ballot fraud encouraged and facilitated by massive nationwide mail-in balloting. The way the vote count has been evolving in key states run by Democrats convinces me that Trump must have won the real total.

    How do we let Trump know we stand with him? I realized today that Trump has weathered failure before, and pushed through and past it. That's what he does, and he has the self confidence to live with it. I also realize that never Trumpers have NEVER, ever given him a chance. Before he was even inaugurated, they started in on him. The poison spread and it was because he won the election though the plan of Washington elite was that Hillary would carry on where Obama left off. I'm ashamed and disgusted with some in America right now. Will the country ever be Great again. If the Democrats succeed this time, it will happen again.

    I know the President has a plan to catch all the cheaters and the Biden clan. He gave them enough rope to hang themselves and they did. The only bad thing is that we have to wait for it to play out.

    YOU HAVE TO GO WATCH HANNITY TONIGHT!! They have found that in ONE county in Michigan, a software "glitch" took 6000 votes away from Trump and gave them to Biden. "Glitch" my ass!! The same software was used in 47 of 83 counties. Could the "glitch" have happened in those counties too?? AND -- THE SAME SOFTWARE WAS USED IN 33 STATES IN THE U.S. LET ME GUESS WHICH STATES... Also the Supreme Court told Philadelphia that they had to isolate and not count, or count separately the votes that came in after election day. The GOP will be filing suit to get all those late ballots removed from the count. Observers weren't allowed to observe in Philadelphia and Detroit. So I expect recounts in PA & MI as well as a GA recount because of the thin margin. Also AZ is still not finished counting and they are looking at voter fraud in NV. IT AIN'T OVER!!!!!

    How many more years must this nightmare of counting go on in this high technology Country. We must have a valid ID just to fly so why even on mail in ballots a ID, DL, SS or voter ID put on paperwork and that is entered into a main system that can verify a true person who voted only once? Wow was that to simple for simple minds or am I just dreaming to big? Make it a penalty to that State or County that does not have it corrected by next election, PERIOD!!!

    thank you so much I really enjoy reading your news, instead of watching on Fox, don't get me wrong my husband watches Fox all the time, but I enjoy reading your input, and I know that what you are saying is the truth, thank you again. Praying for Trump and our Country only God can turn this around.

    No one can talk about the election ballots appearing for Biden and the missing or vanishing ballots cast for President Trump, as our accounts are being BLOCKED! Algorithms is another word for censorship! I feel exasperated, because this is a bogus win for Biden.

    I stopped receiving your daily emails about a month ago and so I resubscribed again a week ago and I am still not receiving your daily dose of news and opinion. These comments are being made because of your post on Facebook. I would appreciate very much getting your newsletter again. Thank you.

    Mike, I watch the tabulation of this election in total outrage. Is this the post-election "civil unrest"? Frankly, I ask is this an "American election" I'm watching or that of an underdeveloped nation? Maybe I'm having a bad dream? What is the average person (I won't say average Joe) supposed to do? I have already prayed for God's intervention.

    A video is available to watch on You Tube James O'Keffe talked to a Michigan USPS Whistleblower who talked with him about the Mail-In Ballot Fraud taking place on Nov 3. Look it up & watch. There are 2 videos.

    As Trump himself said when the voting process was changed just months before the election: "Trouble ahead". It enrages me that the left keeps getting away with cheating, dirty tricks, illegal coup attempts and so many other dastardly things. The Media/Democrat/Socialist/ Big Tech cabal cannot be defeated because they have the power to silence and dispense with lies and half truths to their slavish puppets who've taken their message hook-line-and sinker. Honestly, I feel like I've been gut punched. Unless these Tech Giants are busted up, we will never have a free society with freedom of speech. Big Tech has effectively taken that away from conservatives, and I feel very sad that this is just being allowed. Someone has to do SOMETHING!

    I'm really upset & discussed with this election! They knew for years that President Trump would be seeking re-election (not unless he passed away). I don't understand the states & their process. Why did they make it so confusing? I know the virus had a lot to do with voters, but I blame the register of voters, state / city officials. Although, some voters are at fault because they didn't change their information. I still can't understand how the President and all his rallies, supporters, through out the year & up to all the rallies. There were thousands & thousands of supporters. I hate to say it, but FRAUD is written all over this election. I'm still praying for President Trump. Nov. 3 should be the deadline for all votes PERIOD!

    Well said. I am praying God will shine light on the deceit and evil so it will be revealed.

    Long before Hilary Clinton told Beijing Biden not to concede to election results, and long before Pelosi said on tv "we've got a lot of arrows in our quiver", the unsolicited ballot discussion by the Socialist Liberal "Democrats" should have been stopped in their tracks right there by the Republicans! Shame on the Republicans for lack of pushback! If they would have fought against this & backed Trump more, we wouldn't be here now! They need to get behind him now, especially those Republicans that he just help win re-election!!

    This election was rigged from the get-go! Why else would you be content with your candidate and his running mate to basically not campaign unless you knew the election was in the bag? We've been thinking all along that Biden was hiding from the virus, and he might be that fearful, but I think they knew their tactics and they were determined NOT to be overtaken again like they were in 2016 at any cost!
