"PRESIDENT-ELECT"

I’ve noticed that most major media outlets have already begun referring to Joe Biden as “President-Elect.” Funny, I thought this was the era of rigorous “fact-checking.” Are any of those stories being flagged, branded or banned by Twitter and Facebook as “disinformation”? I ask not because I expect a rational response, but just to point out that Biden is NOT the “President-Elect.”

He’s currently ahead in the unofficial count of electoral votes, but the media do not determine the winner of Presidential elections. State officials, the Electoral College and Congress do, and the Electors don’t meet until December 14th. Even the President of Mexico said he would not congratulate Biden on winning until it’s clear that he did. Maybe Trump lost, or maybe this is just an overhyped media story about Trump’s demise that will turn out to be fake news. It would hardly be the first.

In 2000, it took 37 days for all the legal issues to be settled, and I assure those of you too young to have been around that none of these media outlets referred to George W. Bush as “President-Elect” until the results were official. As Al Gore said back then, "Once we have that full and accurate account of the ballots casted, then we will know who our next president is and our country can move forward." Talk about “an inconvenient truth!”

This isn’t a partisan issue, it’s a matter of objective fact. But then, reporting objective facts is so last-century.

LOOKING DEEPER INTO VOTER FRAUD

There are a lot of claims of vote fraud flying. I want to urge you to be cautious in what you believe. Some of these may turn out to be serious, and others may just be Internet-spread conspiracy theories from unreliable sources. Investigating them all requires time, which means not rushing to declare a winner, as many irresponsible media outlets have decided to do.

One red flag is the many statistical improbabilities that have contributed to Biden’s lead. These are being brushed off as merely the heavily Democrat mail-in vote being counted late. But the Epoch Times points out how statistically unlikely it was that in only certain areas, the percentage of Biden votes suddenly leaped far beyond previous levels in ballots added at 3 or 4 a.m.

One story that’s getting a lot of attention from non-leftist media is about voting software switching votes from Republicans to Democrats. That’s not a wild Internet theory; it actually happened in Michigan, and not only gave Trump back about 3,000 votes, it reversed the results of a local race that had already been called. It’s been brushed off as an isolated glitch caused by a local programmer’s error. But there are claims that it might be more widespread and that the real “glitch” was that it got exposed.

This article gives a lot of background on voting software and the claims and suspicions being launched about it, some of them pretty wild.

Please note: I’m not endorsing this story, I’m just showing you what’s out there and being said. But I’m intrigued by the video they post of CNN’s live election night coverage. At around the :10 second mark, in the numbers for the Kentucky Governor’s race, Democrat Andy Beshear gains 560 votes. Nothing odd about that, except at the exact same moment, Republican Matt Bevin mysteriously loses 560 votes. Why would his vote total go down, and by the exact same number that Beshear’s went up? Is that just an innocent error, or could it be another identical software “glitch” in another state?

Again, I’m not screaming, “Vote fraud!!” I’m just saying, shouldn’t we investigate such a mysterious occurrence before declaring Joe Biden President-Elect? Enquiring minds want to know.

IN THE STATES

Still picking through the results from last week’s election, the voters of Colorado passed by 52.2% a resolution that would award all of their electoral votes to the national popular vote winner in Presidential elections. This means a majority of voters just voted to give away their state's voice in choosing a President to New York and California. I’m assuming this would never have happened before they legalized marijuana.

Some more heartening news: even in California, voters rebuked their leftist overlords, voting by over 58% to exempt Uber and Lyft drivers from the state’s recent law that practically bans gig workers by classifying them as employees. It puts so many expensive burdens on anyone who hires them that it kills demand and would have forced Uber and Lyft to shut down.

It's great to see that Californians stood up for the right of individuals to decide what kind of job they want. But that law is still killing work for other gig workers, including musicians. It needs to be sent to the scrap heap entirely, along with every politician who voted for it.

This kind of rejection of leftist, big government interference in personal freedom should be putting the fear of God into Democrats in Washington. It’s obviously not penetrating some of the more petrified skulls, with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer claiming they have a “mandate” for changing America, even though the Dems lost House seats and enjoyed no “blue wave” in the Senate. But some of the more rational members are privately complaining that the party was drubbed in local and state elections because of its association with unpopular leftist movements like socialism, the Green New Deal, defunding the police, BLM and Antifa.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez naturally rejects that. She thinks the losing Democrats just didn’t campaign the right way or embrace “progressive” ideas hard enough (I define “progressive” as ideas that have failed tragically every time they’ve been tried for over a century, but they have new names for them.) She points to the far-left members like her who won their reelections.

I’d remind her that most of them, like her, come from small districts that are so far left that even Nancy Pelosi said that a glass of water with a (D) after its name could win in them. I’d add, even if the glass is half empty.

GOOD NEWS

Good News: According to Fox Business News, Dow futures skyrocketed by 1700 points on news that Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine proved 90% effective in the first 94 patients it was tested on. Also on news that Joe Biden was named “President-elect.” I hope the first part of that story is more accurate than the second part. If there’s any political aspect to that stock jump, I assume it’s because the market is anticipating gridlock.

A Pfizer executive said, “This is about the best the news could possibly be for the world and for the United States and for the public health.” More details here.

If the vaccine is effective, it will mark an incredibly rapid breakthrough. Vaccines against coronaviruses can take years to develop, if ever. The common cold is a coronavirus, and we still have no vaccine to prevent that. Odd how that happened so fast under a President who so “badly botched” the response to COVID-19

I should also add more good news: apparently, the need for social distancing is over and we can all go back to church, since the same media people and leftists who were shaming Trump rallies as “superspreader events” just two weeks ago are now cheering mass celebrations over Joe Biden.

MORE THAN AN IDEA JOE

Joe Biden famously insisted that Antifa is an “idea,” not an organization. Well, that “idea” just obscenely vandalized the Democrat campaign headquarters in Portland (Warning: bad language at link.)

BIDEN TEAM IS ALREADY PUSHING GSA TO GET "TRANSITION" FUNDS

Enough with all this waiting around --- the Biden team is pushing the General Services Administration (GSA) to move ahead with approving a transfer of power so they can get funds for their transition.

Not so fast. GSA administrator Emily Murphy will start that process only when a “winner is clear based on the process laid out in the Constitution.” Yes, Murphy is a Trump appointee, and thank God for that. If she’d been appointed by Obama, what are the odds that she’d refuse to be rushed? Ha, she would've already set up a direct deposit account with the Biden team.

With almost all news outlets prematurely calling Biden the “President-elect,” he’s gotten it into his head that the vote is now official and that’s what he is. Sorry, Joe, this is a fantasy being promoted by the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself), one that the GSA refuses to be “gaslighted” into playing along with. Good for them.

Oh, but what about the pandemic? Yes, the Democrats are actually using the virus as a pretext for moving ahead super-fast. Democrat Sen. Gerry Connolly of Virginia, chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee of Operations, said to Reuters, “The Administrator plays a critical role in the peaceful transfer of power and ensuring vital government services are not disrupted. This is all the more important amid a deadly pandemic.” Give me a break.

Reuters is saying there is “little chance” of Trump taking the lead through recounts. Oh, Reuters, there is so much more at issue here besides just the physical recounts. Their story also cites unnamed “legal experts” who say Trump’s legal challenges are “unlikely” to change the outcome. I’d like to helpfully point them in the direction of some different legal experts. For now, let’s just go through the legal process, address the serious allegations that have been made –- involving important issues that should be resolved by the Supreme Court –- and see whose “experts” are right.

The 1963 Presidential Transition Act was designed to give the incoming President about two months to set up his new administration before his inauguration on January 20. So Biden’s people seem to be in an awfully big rush to start the transition. But according to the law, the GSA’s administration will decide when to say a winner has been determined and to provide funding for travel and salaries and access to U.S. government agencies.

Recall that George W. Bush got quite a late start on his transition because he was waiting for the Florida recounts demanded by Al Gore, which took over a month before the Supreme Court finally stopped them. If Bush can wait, so can Biden (that is, if he even maintains his lead when the process is examined). The pandemic has nothing to do with this, folks. Democrats used it as an excuse to paper the country with millions and millions of mail-in ballots, and look what happened as a result. We can't let them continue using it as an excuse for doing everything else they want.

If Biden and his team need some money for travel right now so he can continue playing President-elect, he could probably get an infusion of cash from one or more of his billionaire donors. Or perhaps the Biden family could give them a short-term loan, just to tide them over. I understand they have quite a lot of money.

    Bush has been quoted in the media stating the election will not be overturned by Trump...we all know he is not a fan and no wonder we didn't like him or the rest of his family here in FL.
    We find it normal that the PRESS and big news stations are not carrying the stories of the FRAUD, the glitches in the systems, the USPS back dating of ballots for arrival dates, etc...We are praying for a win.

    Mr Governor you are so correct. My concern has been the continued change in our government to protect the constitution from all efforts (even pandemic decrees) and trample the rights guaranteed.
    In 1917 millions died of the “Spanish flu” (poor Spain cause it didn’t start there) but our republic continued to fight in WW1 and industry/jobs never stopped. I’m not sure if “lock downs) would have affected the outcome.
    The difference is the people who lived (and died) then. They accepted the danger and went about their life. They had courage.
    So did the “Greatest Generation”.
    “Home of the “Brave” seems to be something of the past. Maybe this is why Armistice/Veterans day is so overlooked. God help us! Only He can. Most of Americans have learned to cower rather than fight being “cancelled”.
    Lord, please help find the corruption in voting to help us become Americans again

    First and most important- God's people- Believers need to pray daily without ceasing that it will be God's will that are nation is saved from the Biden-Harris agenda and that God will expose all the election fraud and cheating! Right now with no further delay Trump should be appointing a Special Counsel to investigate the Biden crime family, expose and advertise Joe Biden's quid pro quo with Ukraine, his relationship with Communist China and all of Hunters crimes. An interim report needs to be issued no later than December 28th, as suggested by Wayne Allyn Root of Town hall. Appoint Sydney Powell and never, ever give up on fighting against the Dems plan to steal the election. The lack of a Barr-Dunham report before the election is now appearing more and more suspicious as to what side they were really on. The American people were cheated from knowing truth and facts BEFORE the election. The Shamdemic was used by China and the crooked Dems to destroy Trump and for the Dems to use the sham of mail-in voting to cheat, plus rig the software on voting machines in as many as 28 states. The investigation into the Demonrats cheating needs to go way beyond the swing states and more investigations and suits filed, very quickly. If Biden-Harris steal this election all the corruption exposed the past four years will be swept "under the rug" and never surface again. It won't matter if the Republicans keep the Senate, too many weak and spineless in that political party and too many RINO's!! Joe Biden is just a puppet for the far left. If he doesn't push their agenda the way they want they will get rid of him and Harris becomes President. The Obama's and all the corrupt liars from his administration will be back to running things and having their hand out for Soros' money and others. Biden stayed in the basement and did few rally's compared to Trump because he was probably informed, don't worry the election will be stolen in your favor and the MSM will assist us as always. On November 5th when Biden said that the Dems had an "extensive and inclusive voter fraud, tis wasn't a gaffe, he slipped up and spoke what he had been told! When it comes to news never forget that Trump was right all along (like many other things) that the MSM are the Enemy of the People!! Stop watching Fox News, they are no better that MSNBC or CNN. Shut off Fox and go to OAN, Newsmax or Real America's Voice, Mark Levin TV, etc. Stalin's quote has come true for the 2020 election in the USA- "It's not the vote that counts, it's who counts the votes. Trump should not concede until all fraud is investigated. Hr and his family need our prayers and support. God needs to hear from His people that we need Him (God) to save our nation from the destructive agenda of the Demonrats and expose the truth. Pray and fight as if we will lose our precious Republic, because we are on the verge of doing so. Never since the Civil War has there been a time that Patriots need to fight and take a stand!!!!!

    I wonder if one of those computer "glitches" might have occurred during the 2020 election, here in New Jersey. Just doesn't "ring true" supposedly 62% of voters voted for "legal marijuana"! Seems kind of odd as most of the people living here, in our little senior community, voted AGAINST it's legalization. Just wondering!!!!!

    As the oft quoted saying goes, "It ain't over 'till the fat lady sings." As of now, I don't hear the music. We're definitely looking at a potentially "stolen" election. It is inconceivable to me that President Trump looses when Republicans gain seats in the house, and most likely retain control of the senate. I have seen reports of many late-arriving ballots with only one race being voted (you guessed it) a presidential vote for Biden/Harris. The only way that makes sense is that there is cheating going on. I know that's not legal proof in a court of law but it certainly gives we who voted for the President a far more legitimate reason to be suspicious than the Democrats had after the 2016 election where Trumps coattails had Republicans taking both the house and senate. If Joe Biden is eventually crowned as our "fearless leader" perhaps we should cry "China, China, China" for the next four years. (For those of you who have no sense of humor, that was a joke of course.).

    Hello Mike
    I'm crying as I write this and certainly hope you get to read this. Yesterday, I saw pictures and titles of what Biden's commission group on the virus will be. I also saw a document there that looks like a declaration of how they intend to operate. What I read said "PEOPLE OVER 75 YRS. OF AGE WILL NOT GET THE VACCINE, FOLLOWED BY (this is why I cry and am not sleeping well at all) WE ALL HAVE TO DIE SOMETIME". I live in AZ and according to that probably 1/3 of our population is 75 yrs. of age or greater. This reminds me of WWII and all the folks that died in the German ovens. My husband and I are 83 & 88 yrs. of age and are still very active folks. Pres. Trump assured us that the health workers and then the most vulnerable (seniors) would receive the vaccine first. Is there something that Pres. Trump can do to assure me that his agreement won't or can't be reversed should he ultimately not be re-elected? Surely Biden will change that if he can. Would you just send me an email say "got it" so I know that you received and read this. I spent most of last night crying knowing that Biden has planned for me to die. My plan was to leave that up to the Lord.

    In my humble opinion, the President and his legal team need to move quickly to challenge the voter fraud issues and stop the rush to accept the democrat claim they have won the election. The longer they push for acceptance without any significant push back, the harder it will become to stop the sham the Democrats are supporting. If the status is allowed to continue, the integrity of the election process and the voter fidelity will crumble rapidly. (If it hasn't already)

    I observed in June or July the shift of Murdock's Fox news programs shifting toward promoting a Socialist agenda giving segments to Socialists Donna Brazile Richard Fowler Jessie Talov Marie Harf and many more to go with Cavito, Sandra Smith Chris Wallace Martha McCullum does any one remember Shap Smith? Howie Kurts these people became unwatchable for me I had to stop watching as they sliced away at American Values and the laws, the Constitution while helping the a Socialists agenda move forward psychologically a little bit at a time not to bring exposure to the final agenda to its final objectiveHarris and Biden. Murdock knew all along fraudulent activity was going to happen just like Trump did and Murdock is going to go reside with Harris and Biden and the take down of American Flyover country most of Coastal country is under Socialist control now the middle of the country is next. Everyone should congratulate Fox in its efforts to help bring the country closer to a CCP type regime thanks Murdock a true Patriot.

    Now I suspect why Hilary was so upset about losing in 2016. Perhaps they also cheated on the vote count like this in the 2016 election but they forgot about the electoral votes. That’s why they want to eliminate electoral votes — so it will be easier to cheat.

    voted for slick Willie once. I have been lucky to travel to Europe more than once.

    How about Hunter Biden is he totally innocent sense the election? You don't hear a word from anyone. Is there any justice in this country anymore?
