Instapundit has a round-up of the latest polls on election reforms that President Biden claims are the greatest assault on Democracy since the Civil War. I guess a lot of people want to reenact the Civil War, since it turns out that 57% want ballot harvesting banned, 70% want all mail-in ballots received by Election Day, and 76% support having to show a photo ID before voting.

Also, after taking a dip in 2019, confidence in the police has rebounded among black Americans. Meanwhile, confidence in the justice system (i.e., the DA’s and courts) is very low across all racial groups.

At the link, analysts say people have realized that the left’s “bail reform” is a failure that’s turning criminals loose to victimize people over and over; that Biden’s proposals to reduce crime are just pandering to the far-left who want to dismantle police; and that the pendulum has swung from “Defund the police” to “Wait a minute: we need more and better policing to stop this crime wave!”

If only someone had been able to predict that defunding the police and letting criminals out of jail would lead to a crime wave. Well, I guess we can’t expect our leaders to be psychic. It would be nice, though, if we could count on them not to be psychotic.

First, a reader comment about our Fulton County story...

From Michael:

I would like to ask if this could be forwarded to some groups I am in. I am a Georgia voter. Fulton County is the most crooked county in Georgia, and that has been true for a long time. I would like to publicize this as far as I could.

……………………

Yes, by all means! Here is the link to that report again.

Since the shock of what we saw at State Farm Arena on Election Night 2020, we’ve been getting an increasingly clear picture of what was likely going on. Fulton County officials have been as uncooperative and non-transparent as it gets, and it’s hard to believe they’d behave this way if they didn’t have something to hide.

Since Tucker Carlson reported on the duplicate ballot scans Wednesday night, there’s been an all-out war declared to try to get him off the air at FOX NEWS. This is an organized effort called #TuckerIsKillingUs, featuring a video montage suggesting that his advice, particularly on the virus and medical issues, is irresponsible and will get people killed.

Author and communications expert Scott Adams, the creator of the “Dilbert” cartoon strip, said Thursday in his “Coffee With Scott Adams” podcast that if significant fraud in the Trump-Biden race can be proved, “Trump’s your next President.” (That doesn’t mean he would be rightfully installed as President before 2024, but it does mean he’d win the next election if he chose to run.) No wonder leftists are pulling out all the stops to keep auditors from seeing everything.

“If Tucker’s reporting holds up,” he said, “Trump’s your next President, because it will be too delicious to keep him out of office.” The danger they saw in a Trump first term –- meaning the danger to the system they have in place –- would be “on steroids” in a second term, he said, because Trump wouldn’t have to worry about getting re-elected. “I don’t think Republicans would be able to resist letting a rabid dog into the house with their enemies. I feel like, if the pit bull wants to kill somebody, and you need somebody killed --- figuratively speaking, not actually killing people --- I feel like it’s gonna be too hard to resist.”

He said that, in general, people make decisions based on how they feel, not primarily on policy. “How would you feel,” he asked, “if you believed that the election was fraudulent, and even if it didn’t change the final outcome, they tried really hard [to cheat for Biden]?”

“That’ll get you to the election, won’t it?”

A story in RedState supports his view. In special elections in Georgia, Alabama and Wisconsin, Republicans “overperformed” compared to the 2020 election. And it was in Georgia, a state currently under the magnifying glass for its conduct in 2020, that we saw this the most. Republicans came out in force in a suburban Atlanta district that had seen the GOP vote share dip to an all-time low just under a year ago. (I won’t speculate on how accurate that vote count was.) Voters swung 22 points back to the GOP.

The Democrats were so taken aback that “Fair Fight,” the organization headed by failed gubernatorial candidate and “voting rights” activist Stacey Abrams, tweeted this: “Tonight, Georgia Republicans won a Republican district, just like Georgia Democrats will continue to win our Democratic state. The election was an opportunity for us to protect voters in the midst of unprecedented attacks on the freedom to vote across the country.”

They also tweeted this nugget of racism: “While the Georgia GOP’s spin factory kicks into high gear, they continue running scared from the voters of color across the state who defeated them last November and again in January.”

Of course, she was referring to the proposed voting law in her own state of Georgia. Polls show that most people, of all colors, are for such safeguards as photo IDs for voters. But the Democrat leadership is desperate to stop any attempts to keep elections honest, so they’re manufacturing the necessary outrage. Here’s a great opinion piece on that, also from RedState.

Georgia's Republican secretary of state Brad Raffensperger is seeing the writing on the wall for Fulton County, and on Thursday he called for the firing of top elections officials there. He says that elections director Richard Barron and voter registration chief Ralph Jones have got to go.

“Every time we think we’ve reached the peak of Fulton County’s election mismanagement issues, more comes to light,” he told THE EPOCH TIMES. You’d think that line would have come from Tucker Carlson or perhaps us, but no, it came from the Georgia secretary of state.

Still, though, his office is trying to maintain that fraud did not occur. Carter Jones said that double-counting is not evidence of fraud. “Fulton is so poor at handling the actual process that if they had actually tried to rig the election, they would have bungled it and we would have found out,” he said.

Jones is the one who was in charge of monitoring issues real-time on Election Day. His handwritten notes contain words such as “chaos,” “confusion,” and “a massive chain of custody problem.” Why would chain of custody be important except to safeguard against cheating?

He cited many more problems. THE EPOCH TIMES has all the shocking details here in a “premium” story, well worth signing up for.

Truly, Election Night was an absolute horror show in Fulton County, Georgia. If what happened there affected just their own local races, one could argue that they deserve what they get if they can’t manage their elections better than that. But, through cheating or incompetence or (most likely) a combination of both, they played an important role in inflicting the Biden administration on the whole country.

And, yes, I’d say that’s a firing offense.

A New York City school principal is under investigation and may lose her job because she allegedly let her hostility toward white people inspire her to try to divide the faculty by race to get the minorities to conspire with her to fire white teachers.

https://www.westernjournal.com/nyc-principal-allegedly-conspires-oust-white-teachers-move-backfires-may-get-boot-instead/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=huckabee

Here’s the good news in the story: 83% of the teaching staff – including whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians and Jews – signed a complaint against the principal, saying she’s a vindictive bigot who tried to divide them against each other by race, and they “no longer have confidence” in her ability to lead the school.

I would like to believe that about 83% of teachers in a lot of schools realize how poisonous all this racial division is but are afraid to speak up out of fear of the loud-mouthed 17%. Let’s hope they take inspiration from these teachers of all races who had enough and dared to say, “No more!”

President Biden must’ve gone off-script yesterday because he finally said something about Cuba, and communism in general, that I agree with:

"Communism is a failed system, universally failed system, and I don't see socialism as a very useful substitute, but that's another story."

https://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2021/07/15/squad-bernie-hardest-hit-president-biden-denounces-communism-says-socialism-isnt-a-very-useful-substitute/

Dana Loesch’s response, which you can see at the link, is a bit more accurate and much blunter, so I’ll let you click to read that. I’ll just agree with her that it’s more than a failure, it’s a vicious, inhuman system that’s been responsible for oppression, starvation and mass murder everywhere it’s been tried. Let’s hope this statement is a baby step toward Biden realizing the full truth about communism and actually doing something to help people who are trying to stand up against it in places like Cuba and Hong Kong.

In the meantime, I expect Bernie Sanders and the Squad to remain as silent about this latest Biden quote as they have been about all those Cubans rising up against their tyrannical socialist government.

Related: Here is one of Kurt Schichter’s typically hilarious but brutal commentaries about Cuba and why our elite leaders would rather side with the socialist dictators than the freedom-demanding people.

https://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2021/07/15/the-cuban-freedom-protest-is-awkward-for-our-garbage-elite-n2592499

Schlichter goes down a checklist of recent actions by our own federal government that sound eerily like the nation that Cubans want to flee: Controlling information and debate, targeting political opponents with law enforcement, encouraging children to report thought crimes by their parents to the government, etc. He arrives at this chilling conclusion:

“Look at Cuba today, and you see America tomorrow.” Except that Americans still have the power to prevent that, if they’ll just get together and do it.

I might have to ask Kurt Schlichter about this topic when he’s my guest this weekend on “Huckabee” on TBN.

Since AOC and other icons of young “Democratic socialists” are being eerily silent about the Cuban people’s uprising against socialist tyranny, I’d like to call attention to this excellent op-ed that came out last month on Townhall.com from Humberto Fontova.

https://townhall.com/columnists/humbertofontova/2021/06/19/rock-stars-blondie-cherish-their-financial-partnership-with-castro-regime-n2591197

I didn’t write about it then, but it’s suddenly become incredibly timely. Fontova begins by quoting singer Debbie Harry of the rock group Blondie, who recently performed in Havana as part of a four-day cultural exchange that was made into a film being shown outside Cuba. I’m sure the Cuban leaders think it’s great publicity for their regime.

Ms Harry mouths the typical fashionable comments of a liberal US celebrity: having previously declared that “Americans are suffering at the hands of President Trump” and denounced him as a “racist,” she lauded Che Guevarra and Fidel Castro as “fascinating, enigmatic political heroes and antiheroes in the United States for the most part. It was always very attractive to me…”

The rest of the article goes on to detail what Cuba and those “fascinating political heroes” were really like. It’s nothing like the dreamy image of Che on dorm room posters. For instance, did you know that Cuba imprisoned more black political prisoners for longer and under worse conditions than South Africa jailed Nelson Mandela? Or that 10 times the number of Cubans have died trying to escape Cuba than died trying to escape communist East Germany? Or that under her idol Fidel, simply being caught listening to “imperialist” rock music like her band makes could get you thrown into a forced labor camp guarded by machine gunners?

So why was Blondie welcomed? Because, as an unearthed Soviet KGB document from 1981 explained, “Cultural exchanges with foreign countries are our most effective propaganda.” In short, Blondie was played, and I don’t mean the records because that could get you thrown into prison in Cuba.

None of this is intended to pick on Ms Harry, who merely repeated the kind of propaganda that most showbiz liberals have been spoon-fed. But with the truth about Cuba and the way its socialist dictators have oppressed, starved and abused its people finally breaking through into the public consciousness, this is a great time to pull back the curtain and learn that it’s nothing new. It’s not because of COVID, or Trump’s sanctions, as the media would like you to believe. It’s longstanding communist tyranny and rot, the end result of all socialist regimes.

It’s time for all the Che and Fidel fans to take off their blinders and face the truth. This article is a great, eye-opening place to start.
