Month: November 2020

A REcount Could Actually Make A Difference

With Trump now promising a recount as he’s down about 20k votes in Wisconsin and about 70k votes in Michigan, people have started to point out that a such margins are too steep to realistically be changed by a recount:

I mean, it does make sense. At least in a vacuum.

But the 2020 election is not a normal election.

Due to mass mail-in voting, turnout in this election is significantly higher than in any previous election.

In 2016, about 128.8 million people voted.

In 2012, about 126.8 million people voted.

In 2008, about 129.5 million people voted.

As of right now, however, and with the full results not even in yet, the total tally for the 2020 election is about 139 million total voters. It’ll absolutely go over 140 million before all is said and done.

Now, a small portion of that increase is due to population growth between 2016 and now, but most of that is due to increased voter participation via mail-in ballots.

This is exactly what the Democrats wanted: they knew people weren’t excited about Biden, but they figured that if they mailed ballots out to as many voters as possible, then they’d get a lot more people to vote simply because it was so low-effort to do so. Just fill your ballot out and mail it back in without ever having to leave your house. No dealing with long lines or any of the headaches that are part of the voting experience.

Now, of course, this also boosted turnout for Trump, but not by as much as it helped Biden. Because Trump voters were already highly motivated and eager to vote for him. Many Trump voters would do anything to cast their ballot for him.

But one of the other side-effects of mass mail-in balloting was that it would significantly increase the prevalence of vote fraud. I’ve been discussing this on the site for several months now, as have many others.

With no uniform standards nationwide regarding deadlines for mail-in ballots, it opened up the possibility (and I would argue probability) that mail-in votes would be coming in for days after the election. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court even ruled that the state can count ballots that arrive after election day with no postmark. It’s on page 27 at the link, but you can see the relevant text here:

So in reality, voting doesn’t technically “end” in PA until Friday. And since there is no requirement for ballots to be post-marked before election day, there is essentially nothing stopping political activists from filling out ballots after Election Day and all the way up to Friday if need be. Because they all “enjoy a presumption that they were mailed by Election Day.”

This opens up the possibility for massive voter fraud. I am not a legal expert and know nothing of campaign/election law. I don’t have a law degree. However, if I had to guess, I would say the Trump campaign’s lawsuits will be targeting this court ruling specifically in order to get any ballot not clearly postmarked for election day thrown out.

But that’s just my best guess.

State laws in PA, WI and MI prohibited vote counters from counting the mail-in ballots prior to election day, even the ones that had already arrived. So on Election Day, they had to count all the votes from that day plus all the early votes, all at the same time.

Now why would they make such a ridiculous law? Because they wanted to see how many votes they were behind on election night so they could then fabricate the requisite amount. They wanted to jam up the process to ensure they were behind on the vote counts. They wanted to be the last ones to submit their results so that they could ensure they’d be able to scrounge up enough “John Doe” votes for Biden to put him over the line.

There is no legitimate reason those three states shouldn’t have have been able to finish their vote-counting in a timely fashion the way Florida, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, New Jersey, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri–do you get where I’m going with this? If Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania had gotten their vote counts finalized and reported in a similar time frame to other states in the eastern time zone, then Democrat fixers in Milwaukee, Detroit and Philly would not have been able to

While Scott Walker was correct that past recounts have only resulted in shifts of about a few hundred votes at max, this election is totally different given the massive number of mail-in ballots and, accordingly, the massively increased likelihood of voter fraud.

I saw this email going somewhat viral on Twitter today. It was shared by Alex Berenson, someone I’ve been following since the Covid stuff broke out, and it sheds some light on exactly how mail-in vote fraud work:

“The problem with unregulated ballot harvesting is that it makes it easier for bad actors to engage in ballot fraud on a previous unprecedented scale.”

And that’s the key difference between 2020 and any prior election. The scale of the fraud could well be in the tens of thousands of votes in multiple states.

Given the way everything went down last night–Trump looking good all night, suddenly vote-counting stops, then massive troves of ballots magically appear for Biden in the wee hours of the morning–it is not outlandish or crazy at all for Republicans to be demanding recounts and vote audits.

Even with a recount, however, there are major questions:

  • Who is conducting the recount? Is it the same people who presided over the initial vote count?
  • What standards and rules are in place to identify and throw-out invalid ballots?
  • Will the Trump campaign’s representatives be allowed to be present for the whole process?
  • Will every single ballot be audited and reviewed to ensure validity?

It seems like a recount in multiple states will be potentially an even bigger shit-show than election night itself.

However, given the unprecedented potential for fraud this year and the questionable circumstances in multiple states, if a recount is conducted fairly (my friends and I joked that we should bring in a neutral nation like Switzerland to oversee the whole process), then it’s possible Trump may be able to pull this out.

Bigger picture, we might just have to come to grips the fact that America now has a thoroughly rotten and corrupted third-world style political system. We’re no better than any country out there. Maybe this is what makes this so hard to accept: the sudden realization that we’re just as corrupt as the other countries around the world we joke about.

It’s not much reassurance, I know, but the thing is, it has always been this way in this country, and we’ve always managed to survive. I’ll go over a few examples of stolen elections in American history:

The 1824 election

There were four candidates on the ballot that year, Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams, William H. Crawford and Henry Clay. Because the vote was split four ways, no candidate received a majority in the electoral college (or the popular vote, but that doesn’t count for anything).

However, Andrew Jackson had won the most electoral votes (99) and a plurality of the popular vote (41.4%). John Quincy Adams came in second in both, with 84 electoral votes and 30.9% of the popular vote. Crawford was in third place with 41 EVs and 11.2% of the PV, while Clay finished fourth with 37 EVs and 13% of the PV.

Clearly Andrew Jackson was the most popular candidate, but because he did not pass the requisite 131 EVs needed to win the presidency, the election was sent to the House of Representatives to decide.

(Had Trump and Biden tied at 269 EVs this year, the same thing would’ve happened. In the House, all the Representatives vote, but it’s not based on simple majority: it’s based on a tally of states. So let’s say there are 3 Democratic Representatives in a state and 2 Republicans: the vote would go to the Democrats because the majority of Representatives in that state voted for the Democrat.)

Now, Andrew Jackson was in many ways the Donald Trump of his time: a rough-around-the-edges outsider who was viciously despised by the political establishment, and beloved by the common folk. He was never supposed to come anywhere near the White House. The similarities between himself and Jackson are not lost on Trump, either: he put a portrait of Jackson in the Oval Office almost immediately after being inaugurated. John Quincy Adams, on the other hand, was the son of former President and Founding Father John Adams. He was a blueblood. He was from Massachusetts–one of the most powerful states at the time–while Jackson was from Tennessee, which was a newly-formed frontier state and considered a backwater full of hicks and savages. Does any of this sound familiar?

The election remained disputed for months. On February 5, 1825, the House convened and voted for the President. Because there were 24 states at the time, 13 were need to form a majority and win. John Quincy Adams finished with 13 votes, while Jackson–the people’s choice–got 7. Crawford got 4, Clay got zero since he was eliminated prior to the vote, having finished 4th. Adams became President despite the fact that only 30% of the country voted for him.

The Eastern Establishment banded together in support of Adams, while it was rumored that Henry Clay had struck a “corrupt bargain” with Adams in which Clay would tell his supporters to support Adams, and Adams, once President, would appoint Clay as the Secretary of State, which at the time was a very important spot and seen as essentially the next-in-line to be President. The three Presidents preceding John Quincy Adams–Monroe, Madison, Jefferson–had all served as Secretary of State immediately before becoming President.

Of course, as was rumored, Adams did in fact offer Clay the Secretary of State post, which Clay accepted. However, Andrew Jackson got the last laugh: he ran again in 1828 and absolutely demolished Adams in a groundswell of popular support and anger over the way 1824 had gone down.

1824 was probably the first “stolen election” in US history, but it certainly wouldn’t be the last.

The “Corrupt Bargain” of 1876

52 years after the first “corrupt bargain,” America’s Presidency would be decided by another. On election night in 1876, Democrat Samuel Tilden was ahead in the popular vote by a margin of 50.9% to 47.9%. However, he was one EV shy of the 185 majority needed to win the Presidency. Republican Rutherford B. Hayes had 165 EVs. Three southern states had disputed outcomes: Florida, Louisiana and South Carolina, and they totaled 19 EVs. On top of these three states, a “faithless elector” in Oregon cast his vote for Tilden even though Hayes had won the state.

Though the returns in the three disputed Southern states favored Tilden, there were allegations of voter intimidation, plus South Carolina’s vote totals represented 101% of eligible voters, which equals obvious fraud.

Deadlocked over the disputed states and neither party willing to concede, the two Presidential campaigns eventually met in late January of 1877 to figure out who would become President. Eventually they came to a “compromise” under which they would award the 20 disputed electoral votes to Republican Rutherford B. Hayes, making him president, in exchange for the Hayes administration promising to remove federal troops from the South, where they had been stationed since the end of the Civil War in 1865, thus bringing a formal end to Reconstruction. The deal included other provisions as well, but the main one was ending reconstruction.

So that’s how the 1876 election was decided: by a 15-man commission in a smoke-filled room in Washington.

The Likely-Stolen 1960 Election

This one, although not frequently brought up, is still within living memory for millions Americans.

While political junkies might know that the 1960 election featured probably the closest popular vote in history (Kennedy won by 112,827 votes nationwide, or 0.17%), many will look at the EV count (303 for Kennedy, 219 for Nixon) and assume it wasn’t really that close.

But it was. Kennedy won Illinois and its 27 EVs by a state-wide margin of 0.19% (8,858 votes) and he won Texas and its 24 EVs by a state-wide margin of 2% (46,257 votes). Had those states swung to Nixon, his 219 EVs would have instead been 270 and Nixon would have won the 1960 election.

It’s those two pivotal states where the pro-Kennedy fraud is most often alleged. Even NBC’s Andrea Mitchell recently referred to the 1960 election as “obviously stolen.” A 2016 documentary on the election plainly stated, “As the dead of Illinois cast their votes for Kennedy, there are more allegations of fraud in Texas.”

This was back in the heyday of the Daley Family political machine in Chicago, and it’s probably where Chicago gets its reputation as being a hotbed of voting fraud. The “dead voters” meme is a Chicago election-time staple: “Today we join our dearly departed in voting straight-ticket Democrat, ” goes the quip. “Vote early, vote often,” is another.

An investigative report named Earl Mazo who started poking around in Chicago after the election said, There was a cemetery where the names on the tombstones were registered and voted. I remember a house. It was completely gutted. There was nobody there. But there were 56 votes for [John F.] Kennedy in that house.

Nixon had already conceded by the time Mazo was able to meet with him and share what he’d found. Nixon wanted to avoid a “constitutional crisis” during the height of the Cold War.

After an investigation in Chicago, 677 election officials were charged with fraud, but none were convicted. Later, in 1962, three election workers were found guilty and sentence to jail time over election fraud in Chicago in 1960.

As for Texas, Kennedy’s slim victory there is probably attributable to his running mate, “Landslide” Lyndon Johnson, at the time the powerful Senate Majority Leader. LBJ’s political career only got off the ground in the first place due to voter fraud, and his ability to deliver Texas for the Kennedy ticket is largely why the Kennedy’s chose him as a running mate despite their obvious hatred of one another.

The name “Landslide Lyndon” applies to LBJ in the same way that a 6′ 5″, 350lb biker dude is nicknamed “Tiny.” It’s ironic, tongue-in-cheek. LBJ won the 1948 Democratic Primary for Senate by just 87 after a ballot box stuffed full of votes for him was “discovered” in a tiny town called Alice down near the southern tip of the state:

When the dust settled, the new totals showed 202 additional voters, some of whom were deceased and buried in the local cemetery or were absent from the county on election day. These voters “lined up” in alphabetical order at the last minute, signed in the same blue ink in the same handwriting and all cast their ballots for LBJ.

The New York Times published an article July 30, 1977, titled “Ex-Official Says He Stole 1948 Election for Johnson”:

“The disclosure was made by Luis Salas, who was the election judge for Jim Well’s County’s Box 13, which produced just enough votes in the 1948 Texas Democratic primary runoff to give Mr. Johnson the party’s nomination for the United States Senate … ‘Johnson did not win that election – it was stolen for him and I know exactly how it was done,’ said Mr. Salas, now a lean, white-haired 76 year old … George B. Parr, the South Texas political leader whom Mr. Salas served for a decade, shot and killed himself in April of 1975. Mr. Johnson is dead and so is his opponent … Mr. Salas said he decided to break his silence in quest for ‘peace of mind’ … ‘I was just going along with my party’ … He said Mr. Parr ordered that 200-odd votes be added to Mr. Johnson’s total from Box 13.

Mr. Salas said he had seen the fraudulent votes added in alphabetical order and had them certified then as authentic on order from Mr. Parr Parr was the Godfather … He … could tell any election judge: ‘give us 80 percent of the vote, and the other guy 20 percent.’ We had it made in every election …”

The New York Times article continued:

“The Associated Press interviewed … a former agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, T. Keilis Dibrell … He confirmed Mr. Salas’ statement that the last 200 votes had been in alphabetical order’ … Mr. Dibrell said ‘Also, the last 202 names were made with the same colored ink, and in the same handwriting, whereas the earlier names in the poll list were written by different individuals and in different color inks.’

The final statewide count, including the Box 13 votes, gave Mr. Johnson an 87 vote margin … earning him the tongue-in-cheek nickname ‘Landslide Lyndon.’”

According to LBJ biographer Robert Caro, LBJ stole as many as 20,000 votes in that 1948 race, way more than just the 202 that Luis Salas admitted to.

It doesn’t take much imagination to venture that Johnson reached into his bag of tricks once again in the 1960 election, calling on his trusted good ol’ boys network in Texas to ensure he and Kennedy were on top when all the dust settled.

Additionally, famed journalist Seymour Hersh wrote in his 1997 book “The Dark Side of Camelot” that he had listened to tapes of FBI wiretaps regarding election fraud in 1960, and Hersh’s opinion was that Nixon was the rightful winner. Hersh also claims that the Mafia was involved in getting Kennedy elected.

The Hanging Chads in 2000

This one is still somewhat fresh:

Over 60,000 ballots in Florida, most of them on punch cards, had registered no vote for president on the punch card readers. But on many of the punch cards, the little pieces of paper that get punched out when someone votes – known as chads – were still hanging by one, two or three corners and had gone uncounted. Gore went to court to have those ballots counted by hand to try to determine voter intent, as allowed by state law. Bush fought Gore’s request in court. While Gore won in the Florida State Supreme Court, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled at 10 p.m. on Dec. 12 that Congress had set a deadline of that date for states to choose electors, so there was no more time to count votes. Gore conceded the next day.

In addition, there was an issue of “butterfly ballots” (you can Google a picture) also in Florida, which were alleged to be confusing for voters and were subsequently blamed for Reform Party Candidate Pat Buchanan getting 3,000 votes in Palm Beach which Gore alleged were meant for him.

Bush ended up winning Florida by 527 votes total. Florida’s 25 EVs put Bush over the top and gave him 271 EVs.

***

The point I’m trying to make here is that politics has always been corrupt in America. We are not entering uncharted waters here. I wish it weren’t so, but this is the way things have always been.

I am not saying we should just give up and accept that we’re playing a rigged game. I still think Trump should exhaust every possible legal avenue he has here.

I am still hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst. That entails accepting the possibility that Trump could lose, which I have. And that’s what I’m trying to do here.

Do not for a minute assume that this is the first time in American history where there was funny business during a major election.

This is nothing new. We have to learn how to fight fire with fire. We have to be as hungry to win as the Democrats are.

I know a lot of Republicans think it’s the end of the world if we lose this election (it isn’t), but it’s the Democrats who are behaving as if they feel that way. They will stop at nothing to win.

Where This Election Is Headed

A lot of stuff has been said today by all kinds of people, but I think this is ultimately where we’re headed:

It’s going to be another Bush V. Gore situation.

I hope we can win before it comes to that, but I just have a feeling it’s going to the Supreme Court. Trump has already said he’s going that route.

Trump is not going to give up this easily. He appointed 3 of the current 9 Supreme Court Justices, and you better believe he views them as investments which will pay off for him eventually.

If Barrett even thinks about recusing herself from this decision, he’s going to pull her aside and say, “A. Remember who put you where you are, you’d be nothing without me, and B. If Biden wins, he’ll pack the court, and your shiny new Supreme Court seat becomes totally irrelevant.”

We have Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and now Amy Coney-Barrett on the court. I hope and pray they see through the B.S. and put an end to the shenanigans.

Now, that said, we still have a path to victory here: hold on to Georgia, North Carolina and PA while flipping Arizona. That gives us 62 electoral votes on top of Trump’s current 214 for 276 and the win.

Plus we’ll likely win Alaska (3) for 279, and we’re still alive in Nevada (6) for a max of 285.

An account called “Data Orbital” on Twitter says they believe Trump is going to carry Arizona eventually:

But I want recounts in Michigan and Wisconsin. Trump was ahead in those states, then the vote counting “stopped,” and then when we woke up this morning somehow Biden was ahead by razor-thin margins. There’s some funny business that went down in those states. It just doesn’t seem right that Trump could win big in Ohio, win Pennsylvania but lose Michigan and Wisconsin. It’s possible, for sure, but it just doesn’t jibe with the voting trends of the upper-Midwest overall. Trump won Ohio by over 8%. He won Iowa big. He’s done extraordinarily well in PA thus far. He won Indiana by 20%. It just doesn’t make sense that Michigan and Wisconsin would go the other way. Again, it’s possible–I’m not saying it’s impossible–it’s just strange.

Still, though: if the Democrats lose, they’ll take this to the courts, which will get appealed up to the Supreme Court. So that’s why I believe that no matter what happens in the next few days, this thing is going to the highest court in the land.

Other takeaways:

  • Trump is said to be “undermining democracy” by calling out the people who are actually undermining democracy. That’s how this works. Stealing elections is perfectly fine. NOTICING the Democrats stealing elections? Threat to our democracy!
  • We are a 50/50 nation: Yes, Not Trump is ahead in the popular vote by about 2.5 million right now, but as with Hillary in 2016, more than 100% of that margin comes solely from California, where Not Trump is currently ahead by nearly 3 million. The rest of the country is split down the middle between pro-Trump and anti-Trump, if not slightly pro-Trump. I’m not even going to refer to Biden as an actual political candidate because even his supporters know he’s little more than a way to vote against Trump. He’s “Not Trump.” And it’s remarkable that the country is so close given how the media, Hollywood, academia, public schools, social media/big tech, sports, the deep state and big businesses have gone all-in against Trump. We are not the minority in this country. This election, no matter how it plays out, was nowhere close to the resounding repudiation of Trump the ruling class was desperate for.
  • The polls: If you read this site I’m sure you were with me the whole time that the polls were massively, stupendously wrong in 2020. I’ll only pull a few examples real quickly because I could go on for hours with this, but on Monday there were 5 polls of Florida released: Biden +5, Biden +4, Biden +3, Trump +1, Trump +2. The closest to the actual result (Trump +3.5%) was the Trump +2 which was conducted by Trafalgar. A CNBC poll of Michigan had Biden +7 on Monday; the state is currently within a percentage point. Six polls of PA came out Monday: Biden +7, Biden +5, Biden +4, Biden +3, Trump +2, Trump +1. The two that had Trump ahead were Trafalgar (+2) and Susquehanna (+1). Trafalgar comes away from this as the only reputable pollster, along with the Selzer poll of Iowa, which nailed Trump’s margin basically perfectly. Do not trust the mainstream media polls at all. Completely ignore them from now on.
  • Hispanic voters: Exit polls show Biden won Hispanics 66-32 over Trump, which represents a decent improvement over Hillary’s 66-28 margin over Trump in 2016. But that’s not the full story. Trump did fantastic with Hispanics in Florida and Texas. I think if you exclude California, Trump ran pretty damn close with Hispanics in the remaining 49 states. Democrats’ dream of a permanent majority enabled by maintaining a lock on the minority vote seems to be fading. Long-term, I see the GOP turning into a multi-racial working class/middle class/small business-owner party.
  • Black voters: exit polls show Trump increased his support with black voters from 8% in 2016 to 12%. That may not seem like a lot, but it’s the best a Republican has done with black voters since 1996.
  • Fox News is dead to conservatives: The Big Tell was Chris Wallace’s disgraceful conduct as “moderator” in the first debate. He went full liberal. Then, last night, they didn’t call Florida even though it was already decided. They didn’t call Texas when it was already decided. They waited a long time to call Ohio. Yet they were calling states for Biden before a single vote was even recorded (i.e. Virginia). But most egregious was them calling Arizona last night despite nearly a million ballots from election day (heavily Trump) still outstanding. It’s now looking like Trump has a decent shot to win Arizona today. Fox’s “news” coverage is dead and buried. The only redeeming aspect of Fox News is the opinion content, like Tucker, Hannity, Ingraham, Gutfeld, etc.
  • We’re Going to Keep the Senate: That’s the way it’s looking right now at least. So even if Biden wins, this is a decent consolation prize. Of course, Biden could still undo all of Trump’s executive orders quite easily.

We will be fine no matter what happens. I know it seems like this is the end of the world, but I promise you it’s not. Every election in my lifetime has felt like a life and death matter. Life will go on. This country is in much better shape than you think it is. The media is largely to blame for our perceptions of the country.

Whether Trump or Biden wins, the virus will probably go away pretty quickly. The Democrats only cared about it as a means to attack Trump.

Even when the riots were raging over the summer, it’s still true that over 95% of Americans were completely unaffected by them and, had they not been on social media or watched the news, probably would have not even known they were happening.

There’s more to life than politics. It’s becoming increasingly clear that focusing too much on politics is bad for you and bad for the nation.

We always laugh at the libs who think they’re all going to be stripped of their rights and shipped off to gulags if a Republican wins, but we’re guilty of the same delusional hysteria.

We need to pull back from the ledge here. It’s going be fine. We will get through this one way or another.

While You Were Sleeping, Democrats Stole Wisconsin and Michigan

Have a look at Wisconsin:

See that jump that put them conveniently ahead, almost as if it was magic?

Similar in Michigan although not as significant and blatant a jump:

I don’t know how this can be allowed to happen without raising any alarms.

We’ve known this was coming for probably four years now, and yet somehow it’s still crushing to see it play out. The Democrats don’t care who knows they’re blatantly stealing this election.

What are you gonna do about it?”

And we’re still not out of the woods in Georgia yet. Arizona is still being counted and the White House thinks they’ll pull ahead there to offset Wisconsin, but Arizona has already been called by Fox and AP for what it’s worth.

I guess we just have to trust Trump to fight this and get to the bottom of it.

And he is aware of what’s going on. He just tweeted this out, although Twitter censored it because they’re in on the steal:

He was responding to this:

I’ll include the image in full showing the massive jump for Biden in Michigan, although you’ll probably have to zoom in to see it:

This is just another way to visualize what the graphic at the top shows.

UPDATE: apparently the Michigan jump for Biden was caused by a “typo” and has since been corrected:

So instead of a 70k vote lead in Michigan Trump now has a 198k vote lead.

Whether this was truly a “typo” or they got caught in the act once Trump caught wind of it, we’ll never know.

This thing is being stolen in front of our eyes. The Democrats decided on November 9, 2016 to never lose an election again, and this is how they’re making good on that resolution.

We need to put a stop to this. I don’t know how but for the good of the country this cannot be allowed to fly.

Democrats are going to scream bloody murder because of their steadfast belief in the twin mantras of “EVERY VOTE MUST BE COUNTED” and “THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ELECTION FRAUD,” which when taken together enable them to steal elections.

But they’ll never understand, so who cares what they say?

Also, vote counting has mysteriously been put on hold out in Nevada. Trump was doing well there, so I’m sure Las Vegas Democrats are hard at work rigging that state.

It’s hard not to get a little depressed seeing this play out in real time. But take heart because we have Trump and he’s not going to go down without a fight. He ain’t Romney.

The Shenanigans Have Begun

Trump just got done speaking. It’s 1:30 in the morning for me here in Chicago. But it’s pretty clear what’s happening, and Trump said it: the election just “stopped.” And he’s going to the Supreme Court to put an end to the funny business.

Florida counted their votes in a timely fashion. Texas did. California has. Ohio did. Indiana did. Illinois did. Minnesota did. New Jersey did.

But very curiously, the crucial swing states that would put Trump over the top–Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan with their combined 76 electoral votes–just suddenly cannot be decided.

Couting has ceased.

All of those states but Michigan were called on election night in 2016 other than Michigan which took a few days to finally be settled. No problems there.

But now those states can’t be called on election night 2020.

It’s all very strange.

But we know what’s happening: corrupt machine Democrats in deep-blue cities like Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit and Atlanta now know how far behind they are, and they are about to go to work “counting” enough “ballots” (aka fabricating them) in order to pull Biden into the lead in those states.

Notice how Fox News called Arizona for Biden even though there were something like 800-900k outstanding ballots left from election day which were expected to go 2:1 for Trump.

In states where Biden is in the lead, the election is called. Done. Finished. That’s a wrap. Trump loses the state.

In states where Trump is ahead, “Welllllll, Biden still has a chance here…”

North Carolina and Georgia should be called for Trump. They should’ve been called for him hours ago.

Trump is currently “behind” in the electoral votes 227-213 according to Decision Desk HQ. Add Georgia and NC to his total and he’s at 244. Add in Alaska, which will likely go his way, and he’s at 247. Then if you add in ME-2, which hasn’t been called yet but he’s leading and should win, he’s at 248.

At that point all he needs is 2 out of 3 of Wisconsin (10), Pennsylvania (20) and Michigan (16). Any combination of the three puts him over 270, regardless of what happens in Arizona and Nevada.

But wouldn’t you know, they’re just not ready to call PA, MI, WI, NC and GA.

Too much uncertainty!

It’s so obvious what’s happening. Democrats are scrounging up fake ballots that will hopefully pull them ahead in those states.

We all know it’s happening.

Precisely. They were each waiting to see how big Trump’s margin was in the rest of the state.

And look, Republicans: we have every right to be mad about this. Big City Democrats are the scum of the earth. They really are.

But this is who they are. It’s in their nature. How can we get mad at them for doing something we’ve been expecting them to do for months?

What we need to do is stop it instead of just complaining about it like helpless bystanders as they steal the Presidency.

Trump seems to be wise to what’s going on, which is reassuring. But there is so much corruption in this country–in the courts, in the Big Blue Cities.

We are not out of the woods here.

I’m wrapping up this article and it’s about 1:48am and right now here’s where we stand in the major states:

  • Pennsylvania: Trump up 14% with between 73%-87% of the vote counted (DDHQ for some reason can’t accurately specify how much of the vote is in so they provide a range–a pretty wide range at that). Trump’s lead is currently 719,270 votes in PA.
  • Michigan: Trump up 7.36% with between 68-80% of the vote in. Trump’s current lead: 276,707.
  • Wisconsin: Trump up 3.77% with between 87-99% of the vote in. Trump’s current lead: 110,839.
  • Georgia: Trump up 2.16% with >99% of the vote in. Trump’s current lead: 101,977.
  • North Carolina: Trump up 1.4% with >99% of the vote in. Trump’s current lead: 76,701.
  • Arizona: Trump is DOWN 4.95% with 81-97% of the vote in. Trump’s current DEFICIT: 130,665. However, Trump campaign insists that if they win at least 62% the election day ballots that are still yet to be counted, they will win the state.

That’s where we stand right now.

Those of you who have been around for long enough know how it usually goes: Republican lead tend to vanish, while Democratic leads are insurmountable. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a late swing from D to R in any state.

Trump needs to have lawyers and poll-watchers absolutely swarming places like Philadelphia, Phoenix, Milwaukee, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Atlanta and Charlotte.

They are going to steal these states from him if he doesn’t fight back here. I promise you that.

I’m sure you know it, too.

Dems are trying to say there’s “absentee” ballots from heavily D areas still outstanding in all these states.

This is bullshit. The mail-in ballots were the first to be counted. Because they came in prior to election day.

They already have these on hand. They’re just magically getting them in.

I said this earlier this year and it’s coming to fruition now: the Democrats were not prepared for Trump winning in 2016, so they weren’t prepared to steal the election on election night. They were completely blindsided. Up until like 2am they thought they could still win in 2016.

Afterwards, they resolved to be prepared for 2020: they were going to be ready. And you’re seeing that all play out right now.

No Matter Who Wins Tonight…

Let me preface this by saying I am still bullish on Trump’s chances tonight. I think there is massive energy and enthusiasm for him all across the country, and I think the Silent Majority will rise up big-time once again.

However, we all need to be prepared for the event that Biden wins. The polls could be correct. And if that’s the case, then we are about to get our asses handed to us like no other Republican campaign since 1964.

Again, I think that’s unlikely, but it’s possible. And we can’t allow ourselves to be blindsided if it does happen.

Political tensions have never been higher, at least in my lifetime. There’s talk of coups and civil wars. People refuse to associate with other people if they vote differently. Everything–from sports, to movies, to social media and virtually all things in American culture–has become politicized.

It is making this election feel like life-or-death.

But it’s not.

Life will go on no matter who wins.

You will still have your family and friends, no matter who wins.

There have been 58 total presidential elections in American history, and while it might feel like it’s “different this time,” and that this is “the most important election of our lifetime,” I promise you it is not.

If Trump does not win, then it is imperative that we not react like the Democrats reacted the past four years. They let Trump’s victory drive them insane. They got depressed, they convinced themselves it was the end of the world, and many of them have not been able to enjoy life for these past four years.

That is completely on them. They chose that path. They allow Trump to have that power over them. They go to bed angry about Trump, and wake up in the morning angry about Trump. He lives in their heads.

And that is a choice they’ve made for themselves.

Politics is important, but it should not be the be-all, end-all of your life. In fact in a perfect world, we wouldn’t care about politics at all. It would not consume our lives.

Ideally, we’d be focusing predominantly on our families, our friends, our churches, our dogs, our careers, our small businesses, school, sports, video games, movies, being outdoors and connecting with nature, hobbies, travelling–any number of other things that we enjoy and that give our lives meaning.

The things that we are free to enjoy and pursue because we’re Americans.

That’s the whole point of America: to be free to do the things we want to do.

Remember, we’re the side that just wants to be left alone.

I’m not going to sit here and say things will all be fine and dandy if Biden wins, but I am saying we survived 8 years of Obama. Hopefully all of you were still able to enjoy your lives from 2009-2017. I was. I didn’t let Obama being in the White House affect my quality of life.

Politics has become way too big a part of our lives nowadays.

The good news is, no matter who wins tonight, politics will die down–if only just a bit. If Biden wins, the media will go back to business as usual. If Trump wins, the media will hopefully take it easy and realize there’s nothing they can do but wait his second term out.

I am praying for a Trump landslide, but even if that does materialize, your life will be the same tomorrow. The sun will still come up, your breakfast will taste no different, and your life will still be entirely what you make of it.

It’s a defeatist, loser mindset to allow politics to govern your quality of life. No matter what happens tonight, you will still be fully in control of your life.

I know lots of people are worried about a Biden win turning this country into a socialist hellhole, but just know there are a hell of a lot of gun-toting patriots out there who will never let that happen.

But I don’t think the Democrats are going to try to turn us into the Soviet Union. The Democrats may be awful, but the reality is, they just want to hold on to power so they can line their pockets and live like kings. This is par for the course for every society in human history. It’s just how politics operates. Those in power will abuse their power so they can get fat and rich. It’s not some great mystery.

In fact, as much as I hate to say it, if MAGA succeeds and re-takes this country, then probably within 15-20 years of us being in control, our leaders will be just like the Democrats: entitled, power-obsessed and corrupt. This is how cycles of power work.

Only worry about the things that you can control in your life. I know this is easier said than done, and I myself have to get better at it.

But deep down you know this is the only way to live. Only focus on the things you can control.

Focus on your family and your community. That’s how we really change this country.

Placing all of your hopes and dreams on the shoulders of some man running for office is no way to live. Politicians will always let you down, because at the end of the day, they’re mortals just like you and I. Your salvation will not come from a politician.

Even Jesus took an ambivalent attitude towards the government, when he said: “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s”.

In other words, government will always be on your ass, so better to make peace with it and live accordingly.

If Biden wins this election, do not allow it to affect your mental well-being and your quality of life. The only person in control of you is you. Never forget that.

That said, things look great for Trump in Florida right now.

Tweet of the Day (So Far)

It’s a perfect tweet. I can’t add anything more. Except for this, from Matt Taibbi, who wrote the following about Biden, the man who will supposedly bring civility back to America:

Joe Biden is a corpse with hair plugs whose idea of “empathy” is to jam fingers in the sternums of people who ask the wrong questions, or call them “fat” or “full of shit,” or dare them to “try me” — and that’s if he remembers what state he’s in.

Biden Campaign Manager Appears to Concede Florida and Pennsylvania Already

How else are we supposed to interpret this?

Why would she say they can still win without FL and PA?

Well, apparently Trump passed Biden’s 112k vote lead by 9:30am this morning and continues to rack up votes in Florida:

I saw this funny flow chart for how Dems are going to continually move the goalposts throughout today and into the night as things look worse and worse for Sleepy Joe:

Just like with Hillary in 2016 😂

“Mystery British Businessman” Bets $5 million on Trump to Win, Largest Political Bet On Record

Interesting:

A MYSTERY British businessman has bet $5 MILLION on a Donald Trump victory at 37/20 — believed to be the largest political punt ever made.

The rich former-banker who is based offshore used a private bookies registered on the tiny Caribbean island Curacao for his risky gamble on today’s US presidential election.

He’s got insider information:

A pal of the fluttering financiar said he had consulted with “Trump camp insiders” before making the high risk bet that could net him a cheque of almost $15million on 2.85 return.

He didn’t just plunk the bet down on a hunch.

A betting industry source told The Sun: “Word of this bet has done the rounds and we think it’s the biggest ever made on politics.”

But the mystery punter was not alone in a last minute flurry of bets for the White House incumbent. 

Ladbrokes said 3 in 4 of all bets for Trump in the final week of campaign.

Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: “Biden looks home and hosed according to the bookies and pollsters, but even at the eleventh hour punters are continuing to back Trump at the odds on offer.”

And Paddy Power said the volume of wagers placed on the two candidates over the last 24-hours has seen 93 per cent of the money backing Donald Trump to get a second term, with just 7 per cent going for Joe Biden.

Virtually all of the last-minute money has come in on Trump.

This is normally when the sharps get in. You see this in sports betting a lot: when the late money comes in overwhelmingly on one team, it means the smart guys know something’s up.

Any time there’s significant movement in the line late, you should take notice.

The Energy Is With Trump

This tweet perfectly captures why I believe Trump will win:

I don’t care about the polls because the energy is behind Trump. The enthusiasm, the mood of the nation, the fact that he’s the man that matches the moment.

DraftKings, the betting site, has over 350k entries in its election prediction pool, and 49 out of 50 states believe Trump will win the election:

These are regular people betting on who they think will win the election. They base this off the signals they’re picking up from people they know–family, friends, acquaintances. How do I know this? Well, they’re obviously not basing it on the polls, otherwise the map would be blue.

Look at the blowout in rural voting turnout in Missouri:

This is the Silent Majority turning out in droves for their President.

All this massive turnout you’re seeing in rural America is driven by enthusiasm and energy for Trump.

The Amish are having Trump parades:

“You know it’s going to be a landslide when the Amish start to rally and create their own Trump Train 😎🇺🇸”

This is what I mean when I say the energy is behind Trump

The media doesn’t report it so lots of people aren’t even aware of it. But it’s happening all over the country.

There is zero energy behind Biden. Why do you think every other commercial on TV and every social media platform keeps screaming at you to VOTE?

It’s because there is no energy or enthusiasm behind Biden. Getting people to vote for Biden is like pulling teeth.

Tonight Biden said “I’m Joe Biden’s husband” at his rally in Pittsburgh

Originally tweeted by J Joe the Boomerson (@boomberg1911) on November 3, 2020.

How can this man possibly generate energy? They probably put the wrong thing on the telepromter and he was too slow to catch it.

The only-pro Biden energy is among people who already voted against Trump in 2016.

Rally after rally after rally, in multiple states each day, tens of thousands of people waiting in line for 8, 9 even 10+ hours, in the cold, just to catch a glimpse of this man.

He’s like the Beatles on tour in the 60s.

If Biden was consistently having rallies as big as Trump’s, wouldn’t you be worried? Of course you would be. Common sense would tell you there’s a groundswell of support for Biden if that was the case.

But no: the media is telling us the rallies don’t matter–the polls matter. And people actually believe it.

Cities all across the country are boarding up in preparation for rioting tomorrow night:

Do you really think they’re afraid of Trump supporters rioting in LA?

Of course not. They’re afraid of Biden supporters rioting in LA.

Why do you think Nate Silver is suddenly hedging his bets and saying “Welllllllll, if Trump wins FL, NC and GA then this thing is a 50-50 tossup”?

Nate Silver might be a hack, but he’s not a dummy.

The energy is behind Trump.

The signs are all around us.
