Good article by Derek Hunter that touches on several questions we’ve discussed here about the suspicions and accusations swirling around this election.

For instance, if there really is no evidence of voter fraud, why are the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) trying so hard to block investigations and refusing to do any investigative reporting? Don’t they want to prove that the election was on the up-and-up so Joe Biden won’t have a cloud of suspicion hanging over him for the rest of his life? This reminds me of Sherlock Holmes’ observation that the curious fact about this case is that the watch dog didn’t bark.

Why have so many people signed sworn affidavits that they witnessed voter fraud on penalty of perjury if there wasn’t any? Like these

Why did black voters in only three key cities vote for Trump in lower numbers than the rest of the country?

Why are there no accusations of vote fraud to help Trump in cities where everything is run by Republicans?

And why have we gone so long treating vote fraud as a joke instead of rooting it out? To answer that one, I don’t think anyone is laughing anymore.

Comparing Trump to the Nazis

November 16, 2020

This week, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour was rightly excoriated for using the 82nd anniversary of Kristallnacht, the November 1938 assault on Jews by the Nazis, as an excuse to attack Trump. She compared the term of Trump – the best friend Israel’s ever had in the White House and a man whose daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren are Orthodox Jews – to Kristallnacht.

It was more than disgusting political rhetoric, it was a reprehensible diminution of the horrors of the Holocaust. For four years, we’ve been hearing that Trump is an authoritarian dictator – one of those leaders who shoot reporters who criticize them and take over opposition media outlets – from reporters who had no fear of attacking him to his face on national media outlets that spewed opposition to him 24/7. I don’t think they know what the words “authoritarian” or “dictator” mean. And I know for darn sure that Christiane Amanpour doesn’t know what the word “Kristallnacht” means.

Good election news

November 16, 2020

To those looking for good news in the election returns: In California’s House District 39, Republican Young Kim has defeated incumbent Democrat Gil Cisneros, marking the 11th seat flipped from Democrat to Republican.

On Thursday night, New York Rep. Max Rose conceded to Republican challenger Nicole Malliotakis. And there might be more flips and GOP holds still to come as the long count continues.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi predicted a blue wave would increase the Democrats’ majority. Of course, all those losses haven’t stopped her from claiming they have a “mandate” to remake America into Venezuela. "Mandate" being a meaningless word that politicians invoke to justify doing whatever they want, no matter how closely they squeaked their way into office.

Ms Malliotakis is one of two new GOP members who are children of Cuban immigrants, while two others actually lived under socialism in Cuba and Ukraine. Two seats flipped to the GOP in Miami, and one of the winners explained that was thanks to Trump and to the Democrats’ romance with socialism, which is driving Florida increasingly Republican.

These four new Congress members all know only too well the false promises and tragic, oppressive reality of socialism. Mallitotakis tweeted, “An anti-socialist ‘Squad’ is forming.” Unlike the socialist “Squad,” this one will know what socialism really is. However, I don’t expect them to be fawned over by the media or end up on the cover of Vanity Fair, the way AOC is this month.

The idea of a magazine devoted to conspicuous capitalist luxury putting a socialist on its cover would be striking if it weren’t sadly all too common. Clueless rich liberals have been celebrating charismatic leftist radicals for decades, from the Hollywood fundraisers for Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega to all the T-shirts, posters and other art/merchandise romanticizing Che Guevara as if he were Jim Morrison in olive drab fatigues. If these people ever met the real Che, he would’ve put them in front of a firing squad, because that’s what he did…a lot.

Question: Since when is Biden the President?

Trump has not conceded, and with the serious legal challenges to the highly suspicious vote in Philadelphia and Detroit –- to name just two cities –- and the questions surrounding the voting software used in those cities, plus the odd counting shutdown on election night, we don’t even know that Biden will be President-ELECT, regardless of what the media (and Biden) assume.

It may take weeks, perhaps even a decision by the Supreme Court about late ballots in Pennsylvania, if they’ll hear it.

Electors don’t meet until December 14. After listening to Democrats call Trump “illegitimate” for four years, with no evidence ever found of Russian “collusion,” he’s right to take steps to ensure the 2020 vote was on the up-and-up.

Also, recall that Biden pledged not to claim victory until the vote was certified.

Still, Sean Davis of THE FEDERALIST tweeted Sunday: “A source familiar with Durham’s ongoing investigation of the bogus Russian collusion operation tells [THE FEDERALIST]: Durham isn’t doing anything. Dropping his investigations. He’s worried about blowback from Biden. What an absolute disgrace.”

And it is indeed a disgrace, if it’s true. We all assumed that if Biden became President, the various investigations into how the FBI and others in the Obama administration lied and violated people’s rights to tie Trump with Russia would be shut down. Because, of course they would be.

But as of now, the vote count isn’t even certified and Biden has not been officially declared the winner –- let alone inaugurated. Durham is already “worried about blowback”? No matter what happens, Trump is still the President (sorry, Facebook!) until January 20.

If Davis’ source is correct, Durham might also want to think about the “blowback” if it turns out that Trump wins a second term. It could still happen.

As Victoria Taft reports for PJ MEDIA, even the NEW YORK TIMES a month ago reported that “Spygate” had fizzled. Her attitude about this development very much mirrors mine.

I just don’t know what’s going to happen on the right if this turns out to be true and no one is held accountable. For a long time, we assumed Durham would be the one to get to the bottom of Crossfire Hurricane. We’ve been reporting on the "Russia" travesty for Trump’s entire time in office. With so much evidence, how could it turn out otherwise?

But then time passed...and passed. We finally realized that nothing would be released before the election. (Gosh, we wouldn’t want to “politicize” the investigation by giving voters the truth, would we?) Still, we thought Durham was close to wrapping things up and would issue indictments, or at least a report, soon. Comey, McCabe, Brennan and others might actually pay a price for weaponizing the FBI and CIA against Trump.

Importantly, Davis said Durham has enough evidence to file charges but has apparently just been sitting on it. He also tweeted this: “A separate source who has seen the evidence compiled during the course of Durham’s investigation told [THE FEDERALIST] this afternoon that ‘there’s more than enough evidence to indict multiple’ involved in the Russian collusion hoax operation to take down Trump.”

Right now, it appears the swamp has won. “A possible Joe Biden administration is just a green light to return to the way things always were,” writes Bonchie at RedState.com. “It’s one of the worst aspects of Trump losing this election, if he does indeed lose it after the electors vote in December.”

To make it even more perplexing, we’re seeing this at the same time Trump attorney Sidney Powell is insisting that they’re “getting ready to overturn election results in multiple states.” She said this quite confidently on SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES, to host Maria Bartiromo.

Most of what Powell said involved Dominion Voting Systems, makers of the voting machines used in Philadelphia, Detroit, and other at-issue cities, and the software from Smartmatic. If she’s correct –- and she has a reputation for saying things she can prove –- it’s simple to change the tally. “We’ve identified mathematically the exact algorithm they’ve used,” she said, “and planned to use from the beginning.”

"They can stick a thumb drive in the machine, they can upload software into it even from the internet...from Germany or Venezuela even,” she said. Operators, “can watch votes in real time” and “can shift votes in real time,” or alleged bad actors can “remote-access anything.”

We’ve previously reported on Dominion Voting Systems, their fishy background, and problems with security that are built right in. Texas found numerous problems with them and turned them down for elections in their state --- three times.

The voting pattern for the country is extremely strange. How would the House flip 11 seats from Democrat to Republican and be positioned to keep the Senate when Trump seemingly lagged? Also, did Biden REALLY receive more votes than any other presidential candidate in American history, including Barack Obama in 2008? REALLY?

Dominion denies its machines were compromised, dismissing those allegations as –- here’s that word –- “misinformation.” But Powell says you can LOOK IN THE OPERATING MANUAL and see how this set-up can be made to do anything you want.

No matter how suspicious this looks, the problem is proving it. But Powell says she can. When asked for the specific proof, she said she has it but that it would be foolish to come out and say on national TV what it is.

Finally, we love this from legal expert Jonathan Turley: his comment on the lightning speed with which President Trump is being told to set aside his legal challenges. And this insistence is coming from...other lawyers.

"The media and legal analysts have declared no evidence of voter fraud to change the outcome,” he says. “The problem was that we had not even seen the evidence from the Trump campaign.”

He cites WASHINGTON POST columnist Randall Eliason, who came up with strategies for impeaching Trump that were so outlandish, they weren’t even used by the House Judiciary Committee. Eliason wrote that going after other attorneys who were defending Trump is “fair game.” Anti-Trump groups such as the Lincoln Project targeted those firms and tried to force lawyers to abandon Trump as their client. It got so bad, Twitter even blocked one of their tweets, not for targeting Trump (they’re fine with that) but for targeting other attorneys.

When Turley tried to talk to colleagues about just the POSSIBILITY that voting software or systems might be vulnerable to human error --- even allowing he’d seen no evidence of systemic problems --- he was rejected outright. Heretic! Turley hadn’t even alleged fraud, he says, but law professor Paul Campos likened him to a Holocaust denier (!) and called for him to be fired.

"The courts are supposed to be where reason transcends the rage outside,” Turley says. Trump’s case will likely wind up in the courts, with lawyers and judges, and it needs to be decided by reason, not rage. It’s the same with investigations. If Durham has the goods, he needs to present them, with no concern about “blowback.”

If he won't, Trump should declassify EVERYTHING that doesn't damage national security. Win or lose, let the blowback begin.
