Three weeks out, most voters still in the dark

October 13, 2020 |

We’re one day closer to Election Day --- now just three weeks out --- and most voters are still wearing blindfolds, clueless on a variety of issues. To a large extent, it’s because information is being hidden from them.

As reported yesterday, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won’t even answer questions about what they plan to do in office, notably whether they’ll pack the Supreme Court –- a prospect that used to horrify even the most diehard Democrats. Attorney General Barr has told us not to expect U.S. Attorney John Durham’s report before the election is over, and it seems voters won’t even see an interim report. My patience has certainly worn thin. Lawmakers, even some Republicans, are dragging out the search for evidence that implicates Biden and his cohorts in potentially criminal behavior.

Voters tend to make their choices based on economic issues and other things that directly affect them, so why are the results of these investigations important now? Because if Trump loses, those same people will be right back in place, ending the investigations and cementing their power in a variety of ways. Voters deserve to know if their candidates are criminals. Heck, some in the middle who are currently leaning left might even care.

As we’ve reported, social media also play a huge role in hiding information. The Tweet Police at Twitter are blocking tweets that provide evidence of ongoing voter fraud with mail-in ballots. They even “play doctor,” critiquing and blocking President Trump’s tweets about coronavirus, comments that might be pretty darned informative considering what he’s personally been through. The mainstream media enforce the Democrat narrative as well, in part by hiding violence infecting those “peaceful protests” in leftist-run cities.

These are just a few examples. Their strategy is to HIDE EVERYTHING POSSIBLE UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION.

Speaking of hiding, we have an update on what I reported yesterday, about CIA Director Gina Haspel working to protect her agency from oversight at all costs. She received a letter last Wednesday from Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, ordering her to comply with a number of oversight requests regarding “Crossfire Hurricane” that they’d sent her in July. (July!) But she’s blown it off.

An excerpt from their letter to Haspel reads, “The American people have a right to know the full extent of official action taken by federal officials during the 2016 campaign, the presidential transition, and into the Trump administration...Unfortunately, many of the puzzle pieces remain hidden, and some of the information rests within your agency.”

Haspel was given until October 9 to comply with their requests. It’s now October 13. As reported earlier in THE FEDERALIST, Haspel is personally setting up the roadblocks. To protect her position, she’s pulling for Biden to win and all the Old Guard to resume their places in The Swamp.

As then-CIA Director John Brennan’s hand-picked station chief in London, Haspel was in the perfect spot to know what was going on with former MI-6 agent Christopher Steele and whatever was being choreographed across-the-pond to create the phony “Trump/Russia” narrative. But she’s still hiding it.

Ironically, Haspel said this during her confirmation hearing for CIA director in 2018: “As both a career intelligence officer and as an American citizen, I am a strong believer in the importance of oversight [and accountability]...I will uphold the Agency’s obligations to Congress and ensure that oversight works on behalf of the American people.”

What a hoot. The President should order her to respond fully to all inquiries immediately or else collect her things and be escorted out of the building. And how long does it take to prepare a subpoena?

So, why is all this important right now? Haven’t most people already decided which candidate to vote for? Yes, they have. In fact, many have voted already, as the DNC has been pushing them to VOTE EARLY! (The old saying “vote early and vote often” might not be much of a joke this year.) But Biden’s support is not what you’d call enthusiastic; many might swing away if they knew more: his rapidly deteriorating mental condition, his repeated and demonstrable lies, the radical leftists pulling his strings, his disrespect for voters, and, yes, his scandals, including alleged criminal conduct. The Democrat leadership knows that the sooner voters cast their ballots, the less likely they are to be operating on any of this information when they do.

Another investigation that hasn’t seen resolution before the election (and absolutely will end if the Democrats get back in power) is that of the DNC “hacks” that were supposedly done by the Russians. This was the start of the whole @#$% “Russia Russia Russia!” obsession we were subjected to for four years. Incredibly, some Biden supporters STILL believe that Trump was and is an agent of Vladimir Putin, and their votes will reflect that lie.

It would come as a surprise to most voters that there isn’t even any evidence that Russia hacked the DNC. You and I now know this was a story concocted by Hillary Clinton, apparently with help from one of her foreign policy advisers, to distract from her own email scandal. Recall that the cybersecurity company that DNC/Hillary law firm Perkins Coie hired to examine its servers and that launched the hacking allegation against Russia in 2016 was a firm called CrowdStrike, which is no little mom-and-pop.

CrowdStrike never transferred custody of the servers to the FBI but gave them reports, which were later cited by both the FBI and the special counsel. As RealClear Investigations writes, “During that fateful July 2019 phone call that would later trigger impeachment proceedings, Trump asked Ukraine’s [president] to scrutinize CrowdStrike’s role in the DNC server breach, suggesting that the company may have been involved in hiding the real perpetrators.” And why shouldn’t the President suspect them? After all, IT WAS HILLARY WHO HIRED THEM.

If you've been following the details, here’s the latest on CrowdStrike. By the way, the reason CrowdStrike is in the news today is that according to recent financial disclosure filings, Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul have just invested up to $1 million in CrowdStrike Holdings.

    As much as I agree with you on everything you have written, I have a different take on this. I believe that and I know you do as well, that God hears our prayers. On September 26th Franklin Graham and Rabbi Jonathan Cahn were in Washington DC to pray over our country to "RETURN" to our Christian roots. There were reportedly over 100,000 people at "The Return" event as well as over 12 million globally praying for the United States. That doesn't include figures from the Prayer March. I believe God heard us, all of us and His will be done. We have a very stark contrast between candidates. One who supports religous freedom, Israel and the sanctity of life which is President Trump. The other candidate supports abortion all the way up to killing babies at 9 months and supports Planned Parenthood. That alone should have Christians & Jews a very clear choice of who to vote for but ultimately God already knows and has heard us and continues to hear us as we pray for our country every day for revival! 2 Chronicles 7:14!

    Have a blessed day Governor!

    Why is Russia, Ukraine and China not allowed to meddle in our elections but Soros’ name pops up all the time as providing support to different liberal groups. Why is this permitted?

    Mike: How many more Biden gaffes will we get if he survives four years of a presidency? Kamala will be the real president if voters and deaf and and blind.

    The Dems seem to view the Fourth amendment as optional and too many are probably bought off by China--like Quid Pro Joe, who accurately stated I am the Democratic Party. That would include selling his office (all over the globe), being an active participant in the Flynn debacle. This makes Watergate look like a misdemeanor.

    Haspel should be jailed on contempt charges until she complies. That's what would happen if it was you or me.

    The only way that Crazy Nancy will avoid partaking in the $1 million is for the couple to get their own "His" and Hers" mansions.... Despicable, no wonder she is so focused, along with her closeness to top positioning.
    We have to get past this somehow, too much corrosion in the government.

    We gave a serious situation now Mike! With the president acting so childish at the debate. He turned many middle of the road off! And this situation with the filibuster! DANGEROUS! We need to have co,promise! If the Democrats retake the Senate it is scary what they may do to retaliate! Not a good time! I fear for our nation, children, and grandchildren! We are on a slippery slope to socialism here!

    Review of summary Covid 19 data from its website.

    Using the high point of deaths computed on a seven-day average the date is 4-26-2020 and average is 2389. The current date of 10-13-20 the average is 698 or 29% of the peak. This is a solid performance of improvement in that it has been 29% for a week.

    In terms of testing positive the peak seven-day average was 66960 on 7-25-2020. The current date of 10-13-20 saw an average of 50181 or 75% of the peak. More tests, more positives and the average is going up as we speak. But it points out the outstanding performance on the deaths.

    I will send spread sheet if you want it. This is campaign news, data is direct off the website.

    Listening to Tucker Carlson or Hannity around 2:30 Today on the car radio. Not sure who he was talking to but he said something so profound. 3/4 of pollsters Fixing Covid-19 solutions instead of getting Amy confirmed before the election. He said the reason Pres. Trump wants Amy on the Supreme Court is for a 5/4 instead of a tie if there is a problem with the VOTE. Goodness. I do not think the voting public is aware of how all this works. That is definitely more important right now.
    Somehow this needs to be more important than anything, we are so close. POTUS needs to be screaming this and so do all of us. So many glitches mail in votes to wrong people, wrong ballots and so much more. Prayer yes but what do we as Voters for Trump need to do....B Parker

    I am with you Mike 100%. AG Barr needs to arrest the guilty now before the election for after it will be to late. I have started thinking he is doing just like the FBI in the past two men have done. Extend the investigations and collect more pay, they have plenty to put all the Democrats in prison it is a plant to oust the President and Hillary and Obama are the top of the list and then all their puppets to follow. I do not want them in any office of our Government especially the White House. And we also know that they plan for Harris to be the President and Joe is to out of it to see what they are planning. Oh and we also know that the voting is going to be rigged by the Dummycrats they have so much hate, illegal actions up their sleeves,and if they win it will not be a true win there will be illegal voting of non-Americans, dead names, and double voting by mail. OK that is all from me, Loved your Sat, show it was great as usual.

    Critics of The President’s handling of the China virus should look at the fact that any failures are the cause of Obama care!

    Did any rationale human being really think the Durham report would be released before the election? Most of your readers have concluded the the FBI director is feckless and I wonder more with each day if the same doesn't apply to Barr. He is starting to remind me a lot of Jeff Sessions. Nothing happening. No real justice for real criminals and none expected by me. You will see Hillary, Obama, Comey, and the rest of the whole cast will walk free and make millions selling books or in Obama's case be allowed to continue his efforts to bring down our govt. Some Justice system we have!! This whole episode make my stomach turn.

    I’m no longer amazed by the lack of understanding many have particularly by those who are younger and haven’t been taught how the economy works. A minimum wage raise to $15.00 dollars an hour sounds wonderful BUT it also means that hours are cut, jobs are lost, business’s close, prices go up on everything and taxes go up. Any or all combinations. Ergo if you were at poverty level, that is where you remain. Education and working your way up the ladder to receive a real monetary raise to better yourself does.

    The fact that Barr has told us not to expect Durham’s report before the election is over, is disgusting! I hope that Trump does not allow that to happen. I also hope that he fires Barr!!!

    At this point if people are still in the dark, it is willful on their part or they live in a cave with no other human contact. In either case they just don't want to know what's going on, they should all be sent to reeducation camps and taught the responsibilities of citizenship.

    Here is another reason I think Biden will win. I have two GOP friends who will not vote for Trump regardless. One of them will vote for Biden, she does not believe in the Dem platform for the most part but dislikes Trump so much she doesn’t care. She ask me if I didn’t care that Putin is Trump’s best friend. I then told her about the new HiLARY disclosures. She has not heard about that. She thought Trump should have instituted a Nationwide plan for the virus instead of leaving it to the states. She had no concept of states rights. This is a church going fairly conservative woman. Ignorance will rule as well as well as an overwhelming dislike of Trump. He really hurt himself with his behavior at the first debate. I am finding more and more people who are voting based on personality. They think any indications of Biden losing mental acuity is exaggerated. When I asked about Biden’s son and enriching himself, she said what about Trumps kids, like they were doing the same thing. When I said they were taking no pay, she just shrugged. The other friend will not vote for either. Bottom line is you get what you vote for in the long run. Ignorance is bliss. Wait until CA, AR and NM start getting huge influxes of immigrants crossing over legally into their states. They will have to provide health care, schools and living expenses. The Fed. will end up paying for it. All taxes will go sky high. They is no other choice. Wait until the nuns close down their charitable organizations because they cannot in good conscience pay for abortions. To stay in business, all businesses will have to provide services even though they have to go against their conscience. Activist people will be testing businesses, churches and organizations. The thing is, if the Congress goes totally Dem majority, we will never see another
    Rep. In the Pres again. We will no doubt begin to see infanticide and assisted suicide with people encouraged to die when they stop being productive. All references to God, except in Muslim communities will be erased.

    Children are even now being taught to be little racists because of the new curriculums in schools. Black children will be taught their little white Play nets don’t like them because they are racist. White children will be taught darker skinned children re different and the white children need to feel guilty. These are kids who would no doubt otherwise just been playing together,

    When my son was about five we had dinner with a Japanese American family he had not met before. On the way home a relative of ours ask our son if he noticed anything different about the other children. He said he sure did: “they ‘re girls””.

    Dear Governor,
    This has nothing to do with your newsletter today. It’s a suggestion I would like you to think over and possibly pass on to our great President. It’s about how he could really help people with their healthcare costs. Ask him to bring back the deductions for all of our out of pocket costs for our healthcare insurance, deductibles, and prescription meds. I remember that we use to have these deductions and they were cut back until they are almost nonexistent. It would be such a blessing for the American people especially this year during this pandemic. Also, if he did this right away, ( that is if it’s in his power), it would really help him in his re-election bid.
    Oh, how I pray for his re-election........

    Love your show, your newsletter, and you!

    Thanks for reading,

    Charlcie Westmoreland

    Governor, Three weeks out, still the same ole same ole, nothing new happening with the Hillary investigation. What is Barr waiting on, all records have been declassified, like you said, how long does it take to write a subpoena. Much less come up with an indictment for all guilty parties, oh that’s right the Democrats are untouchable. We the people are tired of it, COVID and all. All of Washington is corrupt, from POTUS all the way down to the lowly freshmen congressmen. Not sure I even want to vote, because nothing will ever change in DC, but I will vote!!!

    Your first paragraph certainly is so, but could it be that the blindfold is our face mask being worn upside down?
    No! I believe most of the news sources are blindfolding the electorate. My prayer is that God will see fit to speak to millions with the real truth. The opposition cannot distort that!
    Thank you Governor for your stand and being a truth source! May God bless you abundantly!

    My Aunt Bel had a warning for people who are voting for Biden because they don't like Trump,, "Don't cut your nose off to spite your face."
