BIDEN PLEDGED NOT TO DECLARE WIN BEFORE CERTIFICATION

A couple of days ago, I wrote –- this was fairly tongue-in-cheek –- about Joe Biden deserving prosecution under the Logan Act, as he is a private citizen speaking under no authorization with world leaders to affect foreign policy. It seemed particularly fitting; after all, Biden is reportedly the one who brought up the Logan Act in the Oval Office as a way to target Michael Flynn. (Ironically, unlike Biden today, Flynn was justified in talking with foreign leaders, as he was incoming national security adviser during an OFFICIAL TRANSITION.)

Since raising the issue of the Logan Act, I’ve seen that others are wondering about this, too

Biden is “playing President.” The media are playing along. He addresses them in front of an official-looking cardboard backdrop that says he’s the President-elect, and the media take him seriously because they choose to. JOE BIDEN IS NOT THE PRESIDENT-ELECT.

He might, God forbid, actually become President-elect if he survives the careful examination of the vote that absolutely must occur. But with the myriad allegations of massive, deliberate fraud that might be confirmed and reverse the count enormously in key states, he might not get through that process. Democrats were the ones who pressed for massive mail-in balloting, which --- intentionally, I believe --- weakened the process and left it vulnerable to outside manipulation (especially by the dead, ha). So they’re just going to have to wait while we make sense of the crazy result, which statisticians say is mathematically impossible.

The vote has NOT been certified. I’m reminded of Lucy informing Charlie Brown, “Peculiar thing about this document. It was never notarized.” For once, it’s time for the Republicans to pull away the football and let the Democrats land helplessly on their backs.

As reported in the WASHINGTON EXAMINER, Biden is already play-acting the role of President-elect, accepting “congratulatory” calls from world leaders from France, Germany, Ireland and the U.K. and discussing issues such as climate change and COVID-19.

In her report, Haley Victory Smith refers to him as the “apparent President-elect.” Apparent to WHOM? Haley Victory Smith?

Smith says that despite Trump’s refusal to concede, “many world leaders have recognized Biden as the victor.” Well, that’s probably because they listen to our media, and also because Biden's already assuming the mantle of power, quite inappropriately, speaking with them about foreign policy when he’s not supposed to be doing it.

I would add that one leader who HASN'T yet congratulated Biden is the president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador; he says he himself has been “robbed” of office before by a corrupt process and will wait until our count is certified. Of course, AMLO is catching a lot of grief in the press for doing the right thing.

Reports say he "refuses," but that's too harsh; he's just prudently waiting until our legal issues are resolved, as our own media should.

Anyway, Biden’s team has been quite open about these talks, as they add to the perception that he really is Prez-in-waiting. They say Biden spoke to French President Emmanuel Macron about Iran’s nuclear program (!). He spoke to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson about Ukraine (!) and the Western Balkans.

"I’m letting them know that America is back,” Biden told reporters. “We’re going to be back in the game. It’s not America alone.”

Now wait just a doggone minute. I realize the media are playing along with this “game” –- an unwittingly apt choice of words from Biden –- but the “game” has gone too far.

During the presidential debate hosted by Chris Wallace on September 29, Biden was asked, as the final question, “Will you urge your supporters to stay calm while the vote is counted, and will you pledge not to declare victory until the election is independently certified?”

Biden did not waver: “YES. And here’s the deal: We count the ballots, as you pointed out. Some of these ballots in some states can’t even be opened until Election Day, and if there’s thousands and thousands of ballots, [it’s] gonna take time to do it.”

And so it will. But Biden has PLEDGED not to declare victory until the election results are certified. The results have not been certified, so...does this mean he hasn't declared victory? And if he hasn’t, what in blazes is he doing “playing President” and talking with foreign leaders about Iran and Ukraine? Trump's the President; Biden's a private citizen. Say, isn’t that a violation of the LOGAN ACT??

I would really like to have an answer to this. And I want it from his own lips, not in some CYA statement put out by his legal team.

Last Saturday night, Megyn Kelly said on NEWSMAX that the legal fight over the election is not over, even if the margins make it a longshot. (I would add that since Saturday, hard evidence has been produced that makes it seem like less of a longshot.) She said the Trump campaign deserves its days in court and the election deserves to have “its tires kicked,” particularly in Pennsylvania, where judges had no business jumping into what the legislature constitutionally determines.

Kelly called Trump’s fight “an uphill battle.” But almost a week later, we’ve got sworn evidence of large-scale lawbreaking, and we don’t yet know the extent of the targeted election fraud that appears to have taken place. Kelly accused Biden of being worse than disingenuous with his calls for unity and healing. She called him hypocritical for alienating everyone who voted for Trump at the same time he’s claiming he can unite all Americans.

"[Biden’s speech] was written by a man in his basement for the past year,” she said. (I would add that it’s unlikely Biden himself wrote the speech.) “Because the nation’s extremely divided right now...And you need to look no further than Joe Biden’s own party.”

"Biden’s been saying this all along,” she said. “He’s the unifier, he’s the one who’s going to bring us together. It sounds delightful...and I want that...But let’s get real. It’s not connected to reality on the ground in this country right now. And the only reason you’re hearing Biden and all these Democrats calling for it is because they won.”

Megyn, just one tiny point of clarification: it’s because they want you to THINK they won. Again, they haven’t.

But, but...THE NEW YORK TIMES splashed a big headline on Wednesday’s paper: ELECTION OFFICIALS NATIONWIDE FIND NO FRAUD. This is just more "gaslighting" to make us believe voter fraud is a bogus conspiracy theory --- you know, like the one they've helped perpetrate against Trump for going-on five years. Ignore them.

Joe, stop “playing President,” or you might have to be indicted for violating the Logan Act. Wouldn’t that be something if you had the distinction of being the first American to be successfully prosecuted under it? I just love the idea.

ABOUT THAT NYT REPORTER

Remember when Dan Rather aired fabricated evidence about George W. Bush’s military record, which sparked the defense that it was “fake, but accurate”?

Well, New York Times reporter Kevin Roose got his feathers in a fluff over conservative media outlets reporting claims of voting irregularities instead of simply burying them and prematurely declaring Biden the winner, the way liberal outlets like the Times have. After being forced to admit that the stories were accurate (they weren't saying the claims were true, they were reporting that they exist), his bizarre justification for complaining about them – well, accurate news can still be part of a “misinformation campaign” - may give us a new liberal media category of news: “Accurate, but fake!”

GEORGIA ON OUR MINDS

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer already let the cat out of the bag by declaring that if Democrats win the two Senate runoffs in Georgia and get a 50-50 tie with a Vice President Kamala Harris to break it, they will immediately begin “changing America” and the world.

The idea of any Party being so radical that it would use the slimmest of margins to shove an America-changing leftist agenda down the throats of half the nation that adamantly opposes it (turning us into one big Virginia) should frighten every thinking American into donating to reelect Republicans Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue.

But there might be another obstacle to the left’s megalomania: West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, a moderate Democrat from a red state, declared that he would not vote for a radical agenda to remake the government and cement leftwing power, like stacking the Supreme Court or doing away with the minority filibuster power. Manchin said, “The U.S. Senate is the most deliberative body in the world. It was made so that we work together in a bipartisan way.”

For making that reasonable statement, Manchin was attacked by his Party’s radicals, like Rep. Ilhan Omar, as you can see at the link. But he also came under fire from Republicans who simply don’t believe he means it or that he can stand up to the pressure from his Party to give in when the going gets tough.

Matt Whitlock of the National Republican Senatorial Committee said, “Nobody should trust Joe Manchin,” noting that despite his moderate rhetoric and maverick threats, he voted against Judge Barrett, for impeachment, against tax cuts and for blocking COVID relief. Sounds like relying on him to stop a far-left push would be like trusting your life to a car with unreliable brakes.

The best way to protect America, the Constitution and your individual rights is still to insure that Loeffler and Perdue get reelected. If you want to help them fight what will likely be more Hollywood money than was blown on “Cleopatra,” “Heaven’s Gate” and “Cutthroat Island” put together, then go here and donate now.

PHILADELPHIA JUDGE PLEADS GUILTY TO ELECTION FRAUD

The former Philadelphia Judge of Elections has pleaded guilty to election fraud, admitting he accepted money to add votes to the totals of certain Democratic candidates. I’m linking directly to the press release from the Department of Justice because otherwise, you might think this is disinformation from an unreliable rightwing source, seeing as how the very best people have assured us there’s no evidence that this ever happens.

A CONSERVATIVE EXODUS

Here’s yet another article, this time from, USA Today, about the rising exodus of conservatives from the leftist Silicon Valley nanny states of Facebook and Twitter to alternative sites that respect free speech, like Parler, MeWe and a new one to me that’s mentioned here, Gab.

There have been a number of such articles recently, which reflects both the rapidity of the user shift and the alarm in mainstream media circles that social media sites that have spent so much time learning how to manipulate the public to vote for failed leftist policies might lose its power if the people reject their Orwellian thought control dreams.

All of these articles I’ve seen have made it a point to clutch their pearls frantically over the horrible, horrible people who are allowed to have a voice on these sites: rightwing extremists, militia groups and white supremacists. I might pay more attention if they had ever shown even a fraction as much concern over the left-wing extremists who inhabit sites like Twitter, where the President is routinely flagged and censored, while Antifa organizes and nutjobs promote assassinations. This one also frets over the “disinformation” spread from people talking about the false allegations of voter fraud. Since we have sworn testimony asserting that happened, and it hasn’t even been investigated yet, claiming that it’s definitely false is actually disinformation.

Social media sites, in order to be compliant with the law that shields them from slander lawsuits, are supposed to be neutral platforms; the electronic equivalent of the soapbox in the park than anyone can mount. It might surprise our would-be media and social media overlords to learn that the Founders envisioned this problem when they created the First Amendment. They knew that a free marketplace of ideas meant that people would have to tolerate the expression of bad, dangerous and even repulsive ideas. But they trusted in the common sense of the people to be able to separate the wheat from the chaff, to find the good ideas and make them even better through open debate, while rejecting the garbage.

Americans didn’t need Twitter’s Jack Dorsey in the 1930s to tell us that Hitler was bad. Sure, there were a tiny handful of people who liked what Hitler said, but the vast majority overrode and shunned them. Free speech worked, just like it was planned. I have no doubt that if there are modern day Nazis on free speech sites, they will be largely shouted down or ignored. Besides, isn’t it better to let them talk so people can identify them, challenge them and see how vile their ideas are, rather than force them underground where we can’t keep an eye on them?

Personally, I have no interest in trading the wisdom of the Founders in creating free speech for letting some socialist tech billionaire determine what I should be allowed to say or hear. You’d think that a newspaper called USA Today would defend free speech. The fact that they’re attacking it helps explain why newspapers are losing customers almost as fast as Facebook and Twitter.

BREAKING NEWS

It’s been reported that six US military members and two international officials (French and Czech) have died in the crash of a US Army Black Hawk helicopter off the coast of Egypt. More details will be forthcoming. In the meantime, please pray for the victims and their families.

    Mike, you make so much sense. Sometimes I feel that many of us are led by our noses by TV and the media. I don't watch the left wing shows because I'm not interested in what they have to say; however, on Fox and Friends this AM, I had to listen to Joy Butthole scream about the President 3 times!.......Joe Biden may be the first president-elect to be impeached with his violations of the Logan Act (fat chance of that). By the way, any idea where the Duram report went? Anyway, rant over. You remain my rescue from all the BS. Thank You!

    I have a message for Mr. Biden, Come on Man!

    Apparently he is violating the Logan Act but of course there is no action against him by anyone. If you are a Dem in a high position you are excused from following the law. How much more proof do we need to have. I doubt the President will prevail but wouldn’t it be a hoot. Unfortunately, there would be a lot of rioting and destruction, as well as loss of life. But I think we will have that From now on when anything happens to upset those people, since it is so well tolerated. It will soon become apparent that reduced police presence will make for a lot of chaos and will hurt the Black communities worst of all. But most of them continue to support the plantation owners. Elections have consequences. Wonder how many dead and injured social workers we are going to see. Sad.
    WV, a previously very Dem state, overwhelmingly went red. If Joe doesn’t come around and do what he says, he won’t be Senator much longer.

    It is so good to hear Conservatives are leaving Silicon Valley and it's Communist ideas of changing America. Let the Communist hate America by themselves I don't want a part of it; as soon as its ideas become a non issue to great people the better. Slum wanting idiots can walk on their own shitff covered streets, buy merchandise in their burned out stores, listen to CNN and Fox News, while shooting drugs on their shitff covered streets. Hello Parlay and other Conservatives outlets my thought s are becoming real Conservative points of view are popping up all over MAGA keep our President for 4 more years. Show more Love for Donald Trump.

    UPON MY READING YOUR QUOTE OF BIDEN'S STATEMENT: "I’m letting them know that America is back,” Biden told reporters. “We’re going to be back in the game. It’s not America alone,"IT INCURRED ENOUGH RIGHTEOUS RAGE WITHIN ME THAT I could not finish reading your newsletter AFTER I wrote that statement....especially since that statement has afforded me the opportunity to express what were the thoughts of my heart that I shared with my Lord during my usual morning chat with Him over coffee...only.minutes BEFORE I read that statement.!.

    After asking the Lord WHY, as I expressed in my comment to you, yesterday, my heart IS breaking so much for President Trump.... I came in touch with the reason I analyze Trump the way I do is because there is a loved one in my life who has BEEN a Trump....I then came in touch with how there has been....like there is with Trump...a lie over her life that, years ago, nearly gave her a nervous breakdown
    ..AND....

    BECAUSE it WAS a lie over her life it was authored by the evil liar himself..Satan!
    That thought led me to understand WHY I see Biden's winning this election as Satan's getting the victory OVER Trump to the degree that, in the end, it just might serve TO destroy him!

    I then thought about how....despite the thousands who attended Trump's rallies and all the other many, many people who have expressed their support of...and love for...him, it is not going to be enough to make him NOT "feel like" a loser...
    AND THAT his love for AMERICA...and his desire to make her great again....has not been appreciated...at least not enough for Americans to want him to KEEP trying to make America great.....AND THEN MY THOUGHT WAS THAT....

    DESPITE THE FACT THAT Trump cannot, as he so claimed at the National Prayer Breakfast, love his enemies (because he does not understand how one CAN love his enemies. because he doesn't understand what it means to be "born again" and be a vessel of CHRIST'S love that CAN love one's enemies ) NEVERTHELESS, he DOES have a special (THOUGH "soulish") love for America that the Democrats do NOT have!...AND THEN I wondered how Americans, if THEY truly loved AMERICA.....even if they hated Trump...could vote for a party that does not only NOT love America, but, in reality, wants to destroy her! AND....

    IT WAS MINUTES AFTER I HAD HAD THAT THOUGHT THAT I READ YOUR QUOTE OF BIDEN'S STATEMENT THAT MOVED ME TO WRITE WHAT I JUST WROTE IN THIS COMMENT..and, in view OF what I wrote in this comment, can you see WHY Biden's statement evoked His righteous rage within me?

    My dear brother-in-Christ, we must storm heaven that our Lord gives those of us who claim to be His disciple another chance to be a witness TO the fact that He who is in us IS greater than the he who is In the world...the Democrats...and the media! AND the media wouldn't BE controlled by the he in the world HAD Christians BEEN a witness to the He that is in us....and that His purpose for our lives is to be conformed to HIS image...via picking up a cross and dying TO self!

    In the forward you wrote to Stephen Strang's book you said that you were encouraged that Trump was reaching out for spiritual advice, however, the last thing he needed to hear was how the Lord's purpose for our lives is health and wealth because only "losers" are sick, and poor! Right?

    Donald Trump needs to now, more than ever, find the REAL Christ from someone who....unlike the false prophets he has surrounded himself with..is a TRUE prophet of God, and BECAUSE he is, can be used OF God to help Trump FIND God!.....AND, I will say it one more time, I know of no man of God who I would want to see be given this chance to love Trump to Christ than Mark Harris!!!!

    We cannot claim (as Strang's book SO claimed) that God DIVINELY INTERVENED
    in the 2016 because Trump was HIS choice for President and NOT believe now, in THIS election, that, at this Nth hour, GOD cannot DIVINELY INTERVENE again IF Trump is STILL His choice.....BUT.....

    His decision ABOUT that may depend on if Trump can find the REAL Christ who will now enable him to say AMEN to Arthur Brook's message that THE only thing that is going to bring UNITY to this country is answering hatred with Jesus love!
    AND THAT the medium of measurement OF her "greatness" will BE her love NOT her "economy" or she dare not claim to BE "one nation UNDER God" because God IS Love !!!

    And Mark Harris is my choice as to who God may be able to use to change Trump's mind ABOUT wanting to love his enemies not only because Mark knows the truth OF that statement, but also because knows He who IS truth, which is WHY God CAN use Mark as HIS mouthpiece to Trump and he can give Christ's message to Trump with the kind of fire that burns in the bones of a TRUE prophet of God who is defined AS "God's mouthpiece!"

    "Biden pledged?" "BIDEN PLEDGED?!!" That has to be in the top 5 comedy statements of the year. A proven 'liar' has no connection with the word "pledge." Biden had to have read somebody's like statement and plagiarized it!

    BTW, is there ANY possibility that our vaunted (not) DOJ will manage to produce a 'few' "perp walks" for the criminal element that all but managed to remove a sitting president of the United States? Not that it will matter that much, as the 'future president' Harris will pardon them before they ever see the first day in prison! NO?, I thought not!!

    The DIMS in DC and the MSM are demonically oppressed or possessed. It is heartbreaking that this play administration has all of these ideas to implement but are clueless as to how to implement them. They truly don't care about the adverse effects that are going to result from their tactics. They only look at the big picture. They don't want to consider the details. Their abstract thinking is destructive to this nation. They despise those of us who think literally and logically!

    Biden's playing president could be quite helpful in securing Republican senators in the GA runoff elections. Southerners with any common sense should be able to see right through him!

    Anyone who was not registered to vote in GA for the primary election on November 3rd, should not be allowed to register and vote in the GA runoff elections in January. The GA legislature needs to check their election laws about that matter!!! Whatever it takes! All votes should have to be conducted in person. No massive mail-in ballots!

    Praying even harder for the Lord to bind the devil from this nation.

    It would be interesting to know the exact percentage of Republican participation in the voter fraud of this most recent election. It seems to me that our President and his party would not be knocking themselves out to rally voters to vote for him to then turn around and commit fraud to push the vote his competition. As ridiculous as this sounds, why is no one pointing out that 100% of this voter fraud in in favor of Biden and his Democrats? Could it be that these same Democrats have been the ones who have been pushing for the weakening of our election laws and voter ID for the past 4 years when, before their loss to the Republicans in 2016, these same frauds were decrying mail-in voting as fraught with the danger of election fraud? Should not the Supreme Court see the actions of the well funded left as an effort to controvert our Constitution and take very strong measures to censure the Democrats for their actions during this election and move swiftly to do away with mass mail-in voting and more strongly vet the voter and the counting in any future elections? What is the possibility of a vote day linked and secure email vote to a central dedicated site vetting every email and its owner as a valid vote beforehand circumventing forever state run partisan political vote fraud and interference?
    Kick these bastard's collective butts Supreme Court!

I truly do not believe Biden has won. They are as corrupt as the day is long ! You brought up an excellent point ! If the Democrats want the confidence of the American people - why are they not encouraging us to be sure the election process was honest. Allowing every legal vote to count and every illegal vote not to count. The Democrats dishonest pattern of behavior does not weigh in their favor. God Bless America !
