Amanda Marcotte’s article highlights the Democrats’ MSM/word manipulation difficulties. Those difficulties will inevitably lead to the Democrats’ electoral difficulties.

Ms. Marcotte’s article is titled “Don’t panic: Trump’s coup will fail — but he’s turning GOP voters against democracy”. Ms. Marcotte must think that Trump voters are idiots to use that type of manipulative language. President Trump is following the system put together by Madison, Jefferson and Hamilton and lawmakers overt the years. There’s nothing that he’s doing that the system doesn’t allow for.

Word manipulation is what Democrats do. Whether it’s using words improperly or whether it’s just spin to get their way, manipulation is what Democrats do. That’s why we should worry when Ms. Marcotte wrote “what terrifies so many Biden voters — an astonishing number of people are complaining of panic attacks or lost sleep on social media — are the real moves Trump’s team and many Republican politicians are taking that make this less like a typical tantrum and more like a genuine attempted coup.”

This is snowflakism at its finest. President Trump is availing himself of the legal system that’s been in place since the start of US elections. President Trump hasn’t ordered the military to put down political unrest. Today, instead, President Trump visited with the people who staged the Million MAGA March on the Washington Mall in DC. Nothing says military coup like holding a peaceful political protest in broad daylight in our nation’s capitol. LOL. Here’s proof of that military coup:

Pay attention to the words the reporter used in his report. It’s clearly intended to convey the thought that a riot could break out at any minute. The people’s actions portray a different narrative. While they were boistrous, they were well-behaved. Aren’t peaceful protesters allowed to get noisy as long as their actions don’t become violent and their words don’t incite violence? The First Amendment permits people to “peaceably assemble.”

This isn’t a coup attempt. It’s a candidate exercising his constitutional rights in a tight election. If President Trump used the military to keep himself in power, that’s the definition of a coup. What President Trump is doing is the opposite of a coup.

Ms. Marcotte should be ashamed of herself for this disgusting exercise of word manipulation.

Joe Biden’s lead in Georgia just got significantly shakier. That’s because Georgia contracted with Dominion Voting Systems for their elections. Garland Favorito, the co-founder of Voter GA, just submitted an affidavit saying that he spotted irregularities while poll-watching.

The article opens by saying “A curious thing happened as Fulton County, Ga., election officials counted mail-in ballots at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena in the days after the election. In the early hours of Nov. 5, a surge of some 20,000 mail-in votes suddenly appeared for Joe Biden, while approximately 1,000 votes for President Trump mysteriously disappeared from his own totals in the critical swing state, where Biden holds a razor-thin lead.”

He told RealClearInvestigations’ Paul Sperry that “I concluded from looking at these results that this was an irregularity, since there was no obvious reason for President Trump’s totals to have decreased while former Vice President Biden’s totals increased dramatically. The software appears to have thrown votes from Trump to Biden here too. Or Biden ballots were manufactured.”

There’s more to this than just Favorito’s affidavit. That being said, it’s worth noting that Favorito told Sperry that he “is not a Republican or Trump supporter.” That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though. This NBC article sheds new light on this crisis:

“We kept hearing from election officials that voting machines were never on the internet,” he said. “And we knew that wasn’t true. And so we set out to try and find the voting machines to see if we could find them on the internet, and especially the back-end systems that voting machines in the precinct were connecting to to report their results.”

Skoglund and his team developed a tool that scoured the internet to see if the central computers that program voting machines and run the entire election process at the precinct level were online. Once they had identified such systems, they contacted the relevant election officials and also provided the information to reporter Kim Zetter, who published the findings in Vice’s Motherboard in August.

The three largest voting manufacturing companies — Election Systems & Software, Dominion Voting Systems and Hart InterCivic — have acknowledged they all put modems in some of their tabulators and scanners. The reason? So that unofficial election results can more quickly be relayed to the public. Those modems connect to cell phone networks, which, in turn, are connected to the internet.

It also means that these networks are subject to manipulation. This should get everyone’s attention:

The largest manufacturer of voting machines, ES&S, told NBC News their systems are protected by firewalls and are not on the “public internet.” But both Skoglund and Andrew Appel, a Princeton computer science professor and expert on elections, said such firewalls can and have been breached.

A 19,000 vote net swing is bigger than significant. That’s big enough, by itself, to flip Georgia into President Trump’s column. That’s a net swing of 32 electoral votes. This election’s winner hasn’t been determined, at least at this point.

Yesterday, Joe Biden told the media wing of the Democratic Party, aka the MSM, that President Trump is an embarrassment for not conceding the presidential election. Precisely, Biden said “I just think it’s an embarrassment, quite frankly. The only thing that — how can I say this tactfully — I think it will not help the president’s legacy.”

Biden better tread lightly. If he shoots his mouth off much more, he might start a dogfight that leads to a special counsel investigation of the Biden family’s finances. Once that investigation starts, Biden is in God’s little acre — east of the rock, west of the hard place. Did the Florida recount hurt Al Gore’s legacy? Since when did utilizing the Constitution’s provisions get frowned upon? That’s what President Trump is entitled to do. That’s what President Trump has an obligation to do, both for himself, his constituents and future presidents.

Considering the oddities that we noticed this year, it’s just logical to question things. Throw in things like this and you’d be crazy not to question everything:

Did Joe Biden even notice that he said he’s into widespread voter fraud? At a time when voting irregularities are popping up daily, that isn’t the brightest thing to do.

Further, Biden is rumored to want to rejoin the JCPOA. If he does that, he’ll scuttle the great work done by President Trump, Secretary Pompeo and Jared Kushner. That’s just the least of it. It’d take 8 years to clean up Biden’s mess. If Biden rejoins the JCPOA, that would become Biden’s legacy. Then again, Joe Biden isn’t the brightest bulb in the chandelier.

If Biden becomes president, it won’t take long for people to notice their quality of life drop significantly. Gas prices will increase. Terrorist attacks will start again. The Middle East will become destabilized again. Russia and China will return to making mischief again.

If anyone should worry about their legacy, it should be Joe Biden. He’s an idiot.

This Bloomberg article initially made me laugh. Then I realized that they’re serious. The article opens by saying “Joe Biden won the presidency promising to bring Americans together. But now his administration is sure to come under pressure from some Democrats to risk exacerbating divisions by investigating and prosecuting Donald Trump.”

Later in the article, it mentions “Prosecutors could revive the investigation into campaign-finance violations that resulted in a three-year sentence for Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen and re-examine the instances of possible obstruction of justice that former Special Counsel Robert Mueller uncovered in his probe into Russia’s 2016 election interference.”

The Special Counsel’s Office didn’t bring charges because their investigation didn’t find evidence of obstruction of justice. To obstruct justice, the person has to obstruct a criminal investigation. A criminal investigation didn’t start because a criminal investigation wouldn’t have been properly predicated. The investigators knew from Day One that the subsource for the Steele Dossier was a Russian spy known to specialize in Russia’s disinformation projects.

The DOJ can investigate all it wants. It’s a dry well. There’s a reason why nothing from Mueller’s investigation found its way into the Democrats’ articles of impeachment. Watch Jim Jordan utterly shred Mueller during a House Judiciary Committee hearing:

You want Mueller testifying? You can’t be serious.

Representative Mike Quigley of Illinois, a Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, which investigated Trump, said he believes some of the president’s actions warrant further scrutiny. “No one wants to give the perception of being vindictive,” Quigley said. “But, you know, I think there’s genuine concern with ongoing criminal activities. So, at the very least those should be looked at.”

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts has suggested forming an independent commission within the Justice Department to investigate the Trump administration and pursue criminal charges if appropriate.

It’s apparent that Democrats are vindictive to the Nth Degree. They’ve spent so much time investigating that they don’t know how to do substantive things that actually help people.

Ian Millhiser’s op-ed is a well-reasoned op-ed about Democrat sour grapes. (Actually, it isn’t that well-reasoned.) It contains some things, though, that will likely turn into Democrat talking points.

In his op-ed, Millhiser states that “In the incoming Senate, Democratic senators will represent at least 20,314,962 more people than their Republican counterparts — and that’s if we assume that Republicans win both runoff elections in Georgia.” Later, Millhiser makes an incendiary statement, saying “This is not what the American people voted for in November. But it is what a deeply broken Constitution, which effectively gives extra Senate seats to white conservatives in small states, has given us.”

That’s a thoroughly racist statement. Frankly, it’s disgusting to hear this. When the Constitution was written, Madison, Jefferson and Hamilton enshrined in their document the legislative branch, composed of the House and the Senate. The House was supposed to represent the people. It was elected by the people. The Senate was supposed to represent the states. It was elected by each state’s legislature.

Here’s why it’s imperative that Republicans maintain their Senate majority:

Similarly, if Republicans control the Senate in 2021, the GOP will have the power to prevent Joe Biden from confirming a Cabinet, to block everyone Biden nominates to the federal bench, to prevent Biden from signing any legislation, and even to shut down the government.

If Biden wants a return to a Obama-style cabinet, Republicans shouldn’t hesitate in rejecting people like Clapper, Brennan and Kerry. Republicans should tell him explicitly that deep staters that politicized the IC won’t be tolerated. Further, Republicans should tell Biden that a return to an Obama-style foreign policy won’t be tolerated.

President Trump, Secretary Pompeo and Jared Kushner made far too much progress on Middle East peace to have Biden piss that progress away. If Biden wants to cozy up to Iran and Russia, like Obama did, the answer should be an emphatic no. In terms of Biden’s China virus task force, this should frighten people:

Republicans can’t prevent the appointing of Biden’s task force but they can highlight Ezekiel Emmanuel as a member of it. Emmanuel is the father of the death panel provision in Obamacare. Another thing that they can do is highlight often is President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed, then compare Biden’s programs against that program. Republicans should highlight that President Trump pulled companies together that produced results like this:

President Trump put together the industry that produced the fastest effective vaccine in world history. Biden didn’t do that. Republicans should highlight the Trump policies that make people healthy, prosperous and safe on our city streets. Republicans should highlight how Biden’s decisions destabilized the world, our neighborhoods more dangerous and less prosperous. Biden ran on the notion that he’d fix the China virus. It’s apparent that President Trump did that.

In January, 2017 Joe Biden and Barack Obama were briefed on an illegal wiretap on the Trump transition team. This isn’t a rumor. Thanks to declassified documents, we know this with certainty. We know with certainty, too, that Biden wanted to know if the Logan Act of 1799 could be used to prosecute then President-Elect Trump. This came after Trump won election without controversy.

After that, Democrats spent the next 4 years lying about President Trump, making wild accusations about his campaign colluding with Russia. I wrote here that the Mueller investigation didn’t investigate a crime, making it an illegal investigation under the statute. The investigators knew from the moment they started that there was nothing to investigate. They knew that because the ‘investigators’ knew that the dossier subsource was a Russian agent. That should’ve stopped the investigation immediately.

Next, Democrats impeached President Trump based on hearsay evidence corroborated by deep staters. Adam Schiff’s articles of impeachment didn’t include a crime, much less a high crime. Saying that Democrats did their utmost to divide this nation is understatement. Now Democrats want the GOP to sing kumbaya? I don’t think so.

Further, while I want the US to succeed, that doesn’t mean that I’ll give Joe Biden the benefit of the doubt. That’s if he wins. That isn’t determined yet at this point. There’s still a bunch of lawsuits to be filed, each with lots of evidence. This video provides tons of detail:

Affidavits have already been signed in multiple states. These affidavits highlight systemic voter fraud, including postal workers being ordered to backdate late-arriving ballots. This still needs to work itself through the courts but the system seems to be in place.

If Democrats think that Republicans will forget the past, then they’re kidding themselves. I don’t want Republicans to turn into the conservative version of the Democrats’ Resistance that Kim Strassel wrote about. We don’t need to. It wasn’t too long ago that the out party from the White House was known as “the loyal opposition.” That meant cheering for our country without caving into the opposition party. That’s the type of patriotism I’d prefer. I’d prefer belittling Biden-Harris. Instead of naming major pieces of legislation like the Second Step Act, name it the Trump Second Step Act. Tim Scott’s police reform bill that Democrats filibustered should be named the Scott-Trump Police Reform Act.

I believe in the people unifying behind the Constitution, the Declaration and prosperity. If the politicians want to join, that’s fine. If they don’t they can get fired soon enough. The nation is infinitely more important than the politicians. Period.

In Election Day 2016, 538 predicted that Hillary Clinton had an 85% chance of winning. I’m still waiting for Hillary Clinton’s first executive order. This year, they’ve stated that Joe Biden has a 90% chance of winning the presidential election. This year, they’ll be badly wrong again.

Inside this article, it says “The electoral math is pretty simple. Biden needs to find 38 electoral votes on top of the 232 in the contests that Hillary Clinton won in 2016. He’s likely to win the one from Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District. Remember, the state of Nebraska allocates an electoral vote to the winner of each of its congressional districts.”

This isn’t just partisanship. It’s sloppy work. Joe Biden was in Nebraska once. Ditto with President Trump. The difference is that President Trump’s event attracted 43,651 people to it. Of those 43,651 people, 40.2% of them weren’t Republicans. Biden’s event attracted reporters and a handful of supporter. Further, Nebraska is a deep red state.

On top of that, Biden holds clear and significant leads in two states Trump won by less than a point in 2016: Michigan and Wisconsin. A CNN/SSRS poll on Saturday put Biden up 12 points in Michigan among likely voters, while Biden led in Wisconsin by 8 points in a CNN/SSRS poll and 11 points in a New York Times/Siena College poll released Sunday.

A week ago, Trafalgar, which got 2016 right, had Biden leading by 1. That Biden lead is gone now. Wisconsin is trending Trump now. Insider Advantage has Trump trailing by 2 in Michigan. Trafalgar has Trump leading by 2 in Michigan.

This is ridiculous:

Biden could also get to 270 electoral votes with North Carolina and its 15 electoral votes. A CNN/SSRS poll had Biden up by 6 points there yesterday, while the polling average puts the race closer to a 3 point edge. This is a race that Biden is favored to win, though one where an average sized polling error (about 3 points in competitive presidential races dating back to 1972) would be enough for Trump to emerge victorious.

Trump wins NC by 2-3 points. This tells me that the CNN poll is worthless and shouldn’t be counted.

In terms of vote counts from battleground states, it’s likely to be a close race. From an electoral vote count, though, Trump will finish with 306-330 votes.

Pete Buttigieg is a thoroughly annoying person. He’s also exceptionally dishonest. This article quotes Buttigieg as saying “He inherited the Obama-Biden expansion, slowed it down, but, the economy continued expanding until his disastrous handling of the pandemic–ran it into the ditch that it is [in] now in where we still have something on the order of 20 million Americans out of work.”

Democrats have tried peddling this BS for months. It’s time to expose it as BS. First, is Buttigieg saying that President Obama’s energy regulations created jobs while making the US energy independent for the first time in 75 years? Is Buttigieg saying that cutting corporate taxes didn’t lead those corporations to repatriate international profits that then triggered higher wages? Is Buttigieg saying that President Trump’s renegotiated trade deals didn’t have a positive impact on the economy? Finally, is Buttigieg saying that stopping illegal immigration didn’t have a positive impact on blue collar wages?

Then there’s this:

“President Trump’s idea of a good economy is one where the wealthiest are doing well. Joe Biden’s idea of a good economy is one where we all of us are doing well,” Buttigieg said.

This is dishonest. Income inequality shrunk during the Trump administration. It exploded during the Obama-Biden administration. This is how dishonest Buttigieg is:

The hole wasn’t created by mismanagement of the pandemic. It was created by the pandemic. Last Thursday’s GDP figure of 33.1% is a miracle compared with the pace that Obama-Biden achieved.

Simply put, Mayor Pete will never be president, partially because he’s dishonest, partially because he’s insufferable but mostly because he’s a know-it-all little punk who is wrong on the issues and has a failed record with African-Americans.

For months, I’ve heard that this year’s presidential election would be a base election. I’ve been skeptical of that declaration, to say the least. Saturday, President Trump held a rally at the Pittsburgh-Butler Airport. According to the Secret Service, more than 57,000 people attended the rally. According to RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel’s tweet, Democrats have reason to worry:

One-fourth of the crowd at Butler didn’t vote in 2016. That’s almost 14,000 new votes from Butler alone. Newt Gingrich puts things into perspective in this article:

A victory for Donald Trump would be an American populist uprising against all the large systems that would sell out to the Chinese, give up the American dream, and suppress the political right.

But will President Trump be re-elected? I think so. If you examine the crowds at the president’s rallies, you’ll find not only a significant number of people who have never before voted but also many Democrats. Plus, in virtually every state-wide poll, we see Trump, at a minimum, doubling his share of the African-American vote.

President Trump’s share of the Hispanic vote is increasing, too. That’s mostly because of his economic record but it’s also due to his American Dream Plan. While Joe Biden says that he’ll unite the nation, President Trump has brought people of different backgrounds together through prosperity.

President Trump has expanded his base through outreach. It’ll become apparent when votes start getting announced.

After his Super Tuesday victories, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden insisted that he was riding a wave of “Joementum.” At the time, Biden was riding wave of momentum. At the time, Biden said “People are talking about a revolution. We started a movement.”

In the final days of this election, virtually no momentum is visible regarding the Biden campaign. Democrats are worried, especially in Florida:

Democrats are concerned about lower enthusiasm among Latino voters in the final days of the 2020 campaign, warning it could cause the party and its presidential nominee Joe Biden to come up short in key states on Election Day.

Latino voters make up large portions of the electorate in a number of crucial states, including two top battlegrounds, Arizona and Florida, as well as Texas, where Biden’s campaign is mounting a late push, and Nevada, where President Donald Trump is seeking to broaden his own map.

That’s what nomentum looks like. I don’t know what these pundits were talking about:

I know what this looks like:

That’s what Trump momentum 2 days out from the election looks like. With a huge anticipated wave of GOP voters expected in the battleground states, things are looking good for Team Trump.
