President Trump: Florida Election Should Be Called for Scott and DeSantis Large Numbers of New Ballots Showed Up Out of Nowhere The Gateway Pundit

On election night last Tuesday Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis easily won their races in Florida.

Then Democrats in Palm Beach and Broward counties started manufacturing tens of thousands of new votes for several days.

By Saturday Scotts lead went from 83,000 to 12,562 votes in the Florida Senate race.
Desantiss lead also shrunk by tens of thousands of votes.

On Tuesday Broward County Elections supervisor Brenda Snipes reported 634,000 votes were cast in the midterm election in her county.

On Friday morning Broward County Elections officials now say 717,000 votes were cast in the midterm election.

Broward County Democrats have mysteriously found 83,000 votes in two days!

ALL Florida counties met the latest deadline on Saturday at noon to turn over their election totals.

Governor Rick Scott leads Sen. Nelson by 12,562 votes after three days of of Broward and Palm Beach County ballot manufacturing operations.
This is down from his 80,000 vote lead on election night.

Massive voter fraud is being witnessed by observers in both Palm Beach County and Broward County.

The Democrats are going to steal Florida if Republicans dont put up a fight.

The Democrats have already stolen Arizona, Montana, several Congressional seats in California and they are working on stealing Georgia as well.

There are Still 7 House Seats Too Close to Call All Republican Will GOP Leaders Allow Democrats to Steal These Seats Too? The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Joe Hoft

(pic from Grrrgraphics.com)

As of this morning there are still seven US House Seats that are too close to call.  All of these seats were held by the GOP before the election.  What are the odds the Democrats steal them all?

Ballotpedia reports this morning seven US House seats from last weeks 2018 mid-terms that are too close to call

All of these seats have one thing in common they are currently held by Republicans.  After recent events in close races throughout the country, what are the odds that these seats stay GOP?

We know that in Florida in the Senate and Governor races, after delays and unconstitutional actions, Broward and Palm Beach Counties are still counting votes.  Numerous corrupt and criminal actions have already been reported this election cycle and this is not new for these Democrat led strongholds.  One Broward County employee even filled out an affidavit claiming seeing Broward County elections staff filling out blank ballots.

In New Mexico, a GOP Representative was declared the winner on election night.  Within 24 hours after 8,000 votes appeared out of nowhere, the Democrat had stolen the election and was declared the winner.

Whenever there are close elections, they almost always go to the Democrats who will do all they can to win.  These 7 House seats will likely be no exception!

TRUMP Stares Down King of Morocco for Sleeping During WWI Commemoration Ceremonies (Video) The Gateway Pundit

The 100 year anniversary of Armistice Day was celebrated this weekend in France.
Several world leaders attended the event including President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.

The Trumps sat next to the King of Morocco during the ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe.

During Emmanuel Macrons speech the King of Morocco fell asleep during Emmanuel Macrons speech.

President Trump stared him down.

The US lost 100,000 soldiers in World War I.

Its not clear why Morocco was sitting next to President Trump at the ceremony.

MORE DEMOCRAT TRICKS: GOP Candidate Wins NM Seat in Congress Then Magic Stash of 8,000 Ballots Turns Up (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

Republican candidate Yvette Herrell was leading the New Mexico 2nd District Congressional race on Tuesday.

The race was called for Herrell when she went to bed.

But then Democrats magically found 4,000 new votes!
And now Herrell is out of a job.

Yvette Herrell spoke with Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night.

President Trump won the district by 10 points.

MSN.com reported:

Roughly 8,000 ballots were the deciding factor in who was elected to the 2nd Congressional District seat. Poll workers at the Doa Ana County election warehouse spent hours sorting through thousands of absentee ballots Wednesday.

After an additional day of counting ballots, Democrat Xochitl Torres Small was named the winner in New Mexicos 2nd Congressional District race.

Torres Small gave an emotional victory speech shortly after the secretary of state called the race.

This process doesnt fix our challenges. Only working together will do that. Thats why I am so grateful for everyone who has stood up in this moment to work together.

She thanked a lot of people, including her team and parents.

Coverage of Polands 100th Independence Anniversary is Coming Soon Matt Forney

The celebration of Polands independence in Warsaw yesterday was fantastic. Hundreds of thousands of patriotic Poles joined with a surprising number of foreigners in a beautiful march across the city. Bad, wet weather didnt stop anyone, with constant fireworks, flares, and patriotic songs filling the night air. The picture above was taken outside the PGE Narodowy Stadium, where the march formally ended and a stage was set up for people to give speeches and play music.

I had hoped to write up the event by today, but it will have to wait until I get home tomorrow. While I recorded several hours of footage, my Internet here is too slow to upload it to my YouTube channel. I will have the video and article up later this week. Thanks to everyone who supported my fundraiser to go to Warsaw.

THAT MISSISSIPPI SENATOR WAS SAYING A HANGING WOULD BE UNPLEASANT. HER REMARK WAS STILL RACIST. No More Mister Nice Blog

Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi believes she's being misunderstood:

A newly published video shows a white Republican U.S. senator in Mississippi praising someone by saying: "If he invited me to a public hanging, I'd be on the front row."

... The video ... shows a small group of white people clapping politely for Hyde-Smith after a cattle rancher introduced her.

"I referred to accepting an invitation to a speaking engagement," said Hyde-Smith ... in a statement Sunday. "In referencing the one who invited me, I used an exaggerated expression of regard, and any attempt to turn this into a negative connotation is ridiculous."



Mike Espy, Hyde-Smith's opponent in the runoff, was the first black person since Reconstruction to win a House seat from Mississippi.

I'll give Hyde-Smith this much: She's saying she'd do even unpleasant things for the man who invited her. You can tell from the first part of the clip. Her words are hard to hear, but what she seems to say about the man who invited her is this:
I would fight a circle saw for him.
I'm a Yankee and Id never encountered that expression before, but it's real. Here are a few places where it shows up.

Not Much Interest in the Economy bensozia

Robert Samuelson:

One lesson of the midterm elections is that economic growth is losing its power to unite the country and to reduce explosive conflicts over race, religion, ethnicity, immigrant status and sexuality. . . .

Despite many problems, the economy in 2016 seemed strong enough to put Hillary Clinton in the White House. When voters went to the polls, the unemployment rate was 4.6 percent, annual inflation was only 1.7 percent and median household income had increased 5 percent in 2015 from 2014. Nope, not enough.

Similarly and despite the usual midterm bias against the party of the incumbent president the economy seemed healthy enough to help Republicans retain control of the House in last weeks election. Unemployment was lower than in 2016 (3.7 percent), inflation was only a tad higher (2.3 percent). Median income has continued to advance. Nope, not enough.
It does strike me as interesting that the economy did not help Republican more this time, but that is hardly new: Nixon beat the sitting vice president in 1968, a year of economic boom, because the Vietnam War and cultural upheaval overwhelmed economic concerns. Which makes me wonder: what is it about our time that is intensifying political divisions? We have no issue like the Vietnam War to fuel the fires, but partisan hatred seems to be at record levels.

Some liberals think the underlying issue is white angst about becoming a minority, exacerbated by having a black man in the White House. I remain unconvinced; it just doesn't seem to me that racism is any worse than it has been throughout my lifetime. There is certainly economic uncertainly and unfairness, but, again, this does not seem to me to have gotten worse, and if this were the driver you would think our current economic boom would help.

I keep going back to the intense, widespread anxiety that seems to pervade our society. I find this deeply mysterious; I just can't see any reason why more people should be crippled by anxiety than ever before. If somebody figured out that the cause was some ubiquitous chemical, I would not be surprised, because nothing else makes sense to me. But wherever it comes from I think that when added to our already existing partisan divides over race, sex, sexuality, the economy and so on the result is the level of hate and fear that we suffer from now.

Woke Lindsey Graham: Theres Nothing Democrats Wont Do to Win The Law Means Nothing to Liberal Democrats (Video) The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Mike LaChance at American Lookout:

Lindsey Graham appeared on the Hannity show this week and said that Democrats will do basically anything to win the seats theyre contesting. He is right, of course. We are seeing it play out in Florida, Georgia, Arizona and California.

IJR reported:

Theres Nothing Democrats Wont Do to Win: Lindsey Graham Compares FL Vote Counting to Kavanaugh Confirmation

Sketchy behavior by vote counters in Broward County, Florida, has left many questioning whether Democrats are trying to mess with election results, including Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

The South Carolina senator hasnt had a lot of positive words for the Democratic Party since the confirmation debacle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Judge Kavanaugh represents the best in our legal community, Graham told Fox News prior to the election. He was treated like garbage, despicable, and I hope [Democrats] pay a price.

The senator is now comparing the current situation in Florida to the Kavanaugh hearing. In Broward County, according to the Miami Herald, official Brenda Snipes has already admitted to mixing up provisional and official ballots and has consented to having the provisional ballots inspected following pressure from Republican lawyers.

Ted Lieu Is Not Running For President... But Everyone Else Is DownWithTyranny!


I am certain that Ted Lieu is not running for president because:
1- Ted and his wife want him to spend weekends with his two young sons and you cant do that when youre running for president
2- Teds parents brought him to the U.S. from Taiwan when he was a child, making him constitutionally ineligible to be president.
Ted is virtually the only member of Congress whos made a name for himself who isnt running, or at least floating trial balloons about running. I have an idea that Bernie may make his announcement later in the month which could make some of the minor candidates back down. I hope so. As Ive mentioned before, I have persuaded myself that Im entitled to have one great president in my lifetime and I dont see an alternative, not now and not on the horizon. And think how fabulous it would be for the country and how needed after the worst and I hesitate to use the word president in history, bar none.

As Netanyahu Cuts Short Paris Trip, Additional Questions Are Raised About Trumps Fear Of Rain Mining Awareness +

The abiding mystery: Is Trump, who is the son of a mother born and bred in the windy, rainy, Outer Hebrides of Scotland, so afraid of rain that he was unable to go to a US war cemetery in France on Saturday, for World War I Armistice Day commemorations? https://twitter.com/Reuters/status/1061319137115430912 Or was this an excuse to have the meeting with Putin that he had previously planned, and/or Netanyahu? Possibly a secret trilateral meeting between Trump, Putin, and Netanyahu?

Trump and Netanyahu have been friends since the 1980s, when Netanyahu was friends with Trumps father. Trumps son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his son-in-laws parents were also friends with Netanyahu. Trump and Netanayahu also share a mutual campaign donor in the form of Sheldon and Miriam Adelson.

To be fair, we dont know the temperature at this golf game, nor if it was actively raining. Maybe it was colder in France

Woolsey Fire Burns Nuclear Meltdown Site that State Toxics Agency Failed to Clean Up Mining Awareness +

News Release from Physicians for Social Responsibility LA:
Woolsey Fire Burns Nuclear Meltdown Site that State Toxics Agency Failed to Clean Up
Nov 9, 2018
THE SANTA SUSANA FIELD LABORATORY (ROCKETDYNE) BURNED IN THE WOOLSEY FIRE, THREATENING TOXIC EXPOSURES FROM CONTAMINATED DUST, SMOKE, ASH AND SOIL. THE DEPARTMENT OF TOXIC SUBSTANCES CONTROL DENIES RISK THAT IT CREATED BY DELAYING THE LONG PROMISED CLEANUP.
For Immediate Release: November 9, 2018
Last night, the Woolsey fire burned the contaminated Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL), a former nuclear and rocket engine testing site. Footage from local television showed flames surrounding rocket test stands, and the fires progress through to Oak Park indicates that much of the toxic site burned.

A statement released by the California Dept. of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) said that its staff, do not believe the fire has caused any releases of hazardous materials that would pose a risk to people exposed to the smoke. The statement failed to assuage community concerns given DTSCs longtime pattern of misinformation about SSFLs contamination and its repeated broken promises to clean it up.

We cant trust anything that DTSC says, said West Hills resident Melissa Bumstead, whose young daughter has twice survived leukemia that she blames on SSFL and who has mapped 50 other cases of rare pediatric cancers near the site. Bumstead organized a group called Parents vs. SSFL and launched a Change.org petition demanding full cleanup of SSFL that has been signed by over 410,000 people. DTSC repeatedly minimizes risk from SSFL and has broken every promise it ever made about the SSFL cleanup. Communities throughout the state have also been failed by DTSC. The public has no confidence in this troubled agency, said Bumstead.

Nuclear reactor accidents, including a famous partial meltdown, tens of thousands of rocket engine tests, and sloppy environmental practices have left SSFL polluted with widespread radioactive and chemical contamination. Government-funded studies indicate increased cancers for offsite populations associated with proximity to the site, and that contamination migrates offsite over EPA levels of concern. In 2010, DTSC signed agreements with the Department of Energy and NASA that committed them to clean up all detectable contamination in their operational areas by 2017. DTSC also in 2010 committed to require Boeing, which owns most of the site, to cleanup to comparable standards. But the cleanup has not yet begun, and DTSC is currently considering proposals that will leave much, if not all, of SSFLs contamination on site permanently.

Dr. Robert Dodge, President of Physicians for Social Responsibility-Los Angeles, shares the communitys concerns. We know what substances are on the site and how hazardous they are. Were talking about incredibly dangerous radionuclides an...

It's Not About Centrism vs. Progressivism Booman Tribune

Matt Taibbi makes one unassailable point in his latest piece for Rolling Stone. Whenever the Republicans lose they say that their candidates were insufficiently conservative and whenever the Democrats lose the media say that the party needs to move to the middle. Because the Democratic Party leadership tends to listen to the media while the Republican leadership tends to listen to their own propaganda, the result is an inexorable march of American politics to the right. Beyond that, though, his long essay is a tiresome exercise in setting up a false dichotomy based on the flimsy premise that Big Ideas are the answer for everything.

Its fair to question if the media have any real grasp of what defines the middle or what the American people really want. Its fair to argue that the Democrats have tried to move to the middle in the past and have had uneven results at best. But one thing we know about losing campaigns is that the losers needed to get more votes from somewhere. If not from the middle, then from fringes or the apathetic. If not from cities, then from the suburbs. If not from the suburbs, then from the small towns and rural areas. If not from men, then from women. If not from the young, then from the old. If not from Florida, then from Michigan and Wisconsin.

In 2016, Hillary Clinton sought to run up the score in the affluent and well-educated suburbs and she succeeded. The Democrats built on that success in 2017 to make huge gains in Virginia and take back the governors mansion in New Jersey. They built on it again in 2018 to win back the House of Representatives. As far as I can tell, though, this hasnt really been as much a carefully calibrated success based on political messaging as a natural revolt of the educated and civil against whatever the fuck you want to call Trumpism.

It appears that Democratic candidates could use almost any message in the 2018 midterms and win provided that the state or district was at least somewhat invested in the idea that reality has a factual basis. On the other hand, if the education level of the state or district fell below a point certain, the Democrat could curse Pelosi as the devil and call their own party a bunch of loons or pitch Medicare-for-All and the abolition of ICE and none of it would make a lick of difference. They were going to lose.

This isnt the kind of 50-50 split any healthy country should want to see. In 2020, its quite possible that a Democratic contender will figure out how to get the 200,000 or so additional votes Clinton needed in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania to win the presidency, but that wont make them some kind of genius, give them some kind of mandate, or reconcile the other half of the country to their term in office.

Zoe Lofgren's Moment Has Arrived Booman Tribune

There are a lot of committees in the U.S. House of Representatives. Some are very prestigious. The Ways & Means Committee handles taxes and entitlements. The Finance Committee oversees Wall Street. The Judiciary Committee has a wide mandate and is responsible for looking into impeachable offenses. Obviously, there are weighty responsibilities involved with serving on the Armed Services Committee. In normal times, there isnt much prestige or even advantage associated with serving on the House Administration Committee.

They spend most of their time overseeing management of the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution and National Zoo, the Clerk of the House, the Sergeant at Arms and Capitol Police, the Government Publishing Office, the Architect of the Capitol, and the Office of Congressional Accessibility Services. In addition to that, theyre also responsible for providing the funding to other committees and individual members of Congress.

But they have one other responsibility that is periodically a very big deal.

The Committees jurisdiction over federal elections requires it to consider proposals to amend federal election law and to monitor congressional elections across the United States. The Committee was instrumental in the passage of the Help America Vote Act of 2002, which former Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter called the most meaningful improvement in election laws and voting safeguards in a generation. This law provided more than $3 billion dollars for the upgrades of voting equipment and procedures to make the voting process more accessible and to guard against fraud.

The current chairman of the committee is Republican Gregg Harper of Mississippi, a state with possibly the worst and most violent historical record on voting and civil rights in the country. A former chairman of the Rankin County, Mississippi Republican Party, Harper was assigned as an observer during the 2000 Florida presidential recount. Hes only served as chairman since the beginning of this Congress in January 2017. On the Democratic side, former chairman and current ranking member Bob Brady of Philadelphia is retiring. As next in seniority, its likely that Rep. Zoe Lofgren of California will serve as the chairperson of the committee when the next Congress convenes in January 2019. Fortunately, she has plenty of experience and has been overs...

Midnight Meme Of The Day! DownWithTyranny!

This is indeed your brain on FOX News! Remember that van Trump's pipe bomber fan had? Check this out! In the republican mind, this is a great ride! Think of the generations of inbreeding and meth use that goes into things like this. How much you wanna bet that it also serves as a home school for the kids! You know, the kids with fetal alcohol brain damage.

Seriously, though, in Germany in the 1920 and 1930s, it was a common practice for Nazi Party and Hitler supporters to decorate their vehicles in this exact way, and look where that went. Now that the midterm elections are done, the 2020 campaign season has begun. Can we expect to see more and more of these? As Sarah Palin (remember her?) would say, "You betcha!"

Trump Rains On The Parade In Paris DownWithTyranny!


Trump made an ass of himself on the international stage again and disgraced our country, as he always does. Hes a hateful little turd who thinks he can bully foreign leaders the way he bullies the cowardly careerists in his own party. He respects Putin even seems to genuinely like him and no one else.

Jonathan Swan reported this evening that hes as jazzed as ever about hitting foreign-made cars with steep tariffs. Just about every member of his senior economic team besides Peter Navarro believes this is a terrible idea. But they havent swayed him. With each passing month, his zest for car tariffs only swells. Trump now views the threat of car tariffs as his best leverage over negotiating partners. He has privately told aides that he got a better trade deal with Canada because he threatened Prime Minister Justin Trudeau with car tariffs. And he says the same about the Europeans, according to sources briefed on his thinking Trade law dictates that Defense Sec. James Mattis must provide a national security justification for any new auto tariffs. A source who spoke to Mattis more than a month ago said he was deeply skeptical about the idea, worrying that big new car tariffs could further strain relationships with allies. Mattis has not, however, made any final decision.

And speaking of bullying, , which is sees as a foreign colony and cant seem to conceive as an integral part of the U.S., a product of his lifelong prejudice and ugly bigotry and racism. He doesn't want to give Puerto Rico any more federal money for its recovery from Hurricane Maria, White House officials have told congressional appropriators and leadership. This is because he claims, without evidence, that the islands government is using federal dis...

America Goes to War LewRockwell

[Great Wars and Great Leaders: A Libertarian Rebuttal (2010)]

With the onset of war in Europe, hostilities began in the North Atlantic which eventually provided the context or rather, pretext for Americas participation. Immediately, questions of the rights of neutrals and belligerents leapt to the fore.

In 1909, an international conference had produced the Declaration of London, a statement of international law as it applied to war at sea. Since it was not ratified by all the signatories, the declaration never came into effect. However, once war started the United States inquired whether the belligerents were willing to abide by its stipulations. The Central Powers agreed, providing the entente did the same. The British agreed, with certain modifications, which effectively negated the declaration.1 British modifications included adding a large number of previously free items to the conditional contraband list and changing the status of key raw materials most important of all, food to absolute contraband, allegedly because they could be used by the German army.

The traditional understanding of international law on this point was expounded a decade and a half earlier by the British prime minister, Lord Salisbury:

Foodstuffs, with a hostile destination, can be considered contraband of war only if they are supplies for the enemys forces. It is not sufficient that they are capable of being so used; it must be shown that this was in fact their destination at the time of the seizure.2

That had also been the historical position of the US government. But in 1914 the British claimed the right to capture food as well as other previously conditional contraband destined not only for hostile but even for neutral ports, on the pretense that they would ultimately reach Germany and thus the German army. In reality, the aim was, as Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty candidly admitted, to starve the whole population men, women, and children, old and young, wounded and sound into submission....

Whats Worse Than Antiwar Propaganda on Veterans Day? LewRockwell

Shop all books by Tom Woods

Pro-war propaganda.

A fellow I do a fair amount of business with posted on social media today that this is not a day for antiwar propaganda.

Nonsense.

Veterans Day was originally Armistice Day, in commemoration of the cessation of hostilities in World War I. The armistice was signed in the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, in 1918.

For four years, Europe tore itself apart, and sent millions of men into a meat grinder for no good reason. Tens of thousands would die, and the front would move a matter of yards.

Especially on this hundredth anniversary of the original Armistice Day, how does anyone seriously expect to honor the fallen without any discussion of the madmen who sent them into this horror?

Did their deaths occur in some abstract realm, outside time, space, and causation?

Or were they killed in specific ways, under orders from particular people?

Anyone speaking in mere platitudes today is an enemy of mankind.

The left-liberals and neoconservatives alike, who always seem to put aside their pretend differences when an idiotic war is in the offing, and who make saccharine speeches about democracy and openness and peace, are enemies of mankind.

As a reminder of how deranged our cultural elite and political establishment are, how many major political figures of the past hundred years have been dismissed from polite society for urging too much war?

There are lots of things that get you demonized and ostracized in America, but that aint one of them.

Usually it gets you called a statesman.

This is deranged.

Especially on Veterans Day should we speak out against war and the lying propagandists who foment them.

And the state cheerleaders who make excuses for them. (Why, Saddam really did have WMDs! etc.)

Today (Nov. 9) I heard a black historian on NPR say that the civil war was fought in order to establish a framework for human rights.

He also said that black civil rights achieved by the war were overturned by the rollback of Reconstruction, put back in place by the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and was now being overturned again by Trumps response to the caravan from Honduras.

As best as I could tell, this was an Identity Politics explanation of history with all of its contradictions and factual errors.

Identity Politics is based on the accusation that the white male is a racist and a misogynist. This is inconsistent with the belief that Washington, totally in the hands of white males, chose to fight a bloody civil war in order to bring human rights to black slaves. If white males are this idealistic and willing to make such a sacrifice for blacks, how is it that the white males are racists?

The black historian cant have it both ways.

Moreover, how would the black historian explain how it possibly can be that the same Union army that fought to bring human rights to black slaves immediately on wars end was sent under the same generals, Sherman and Sheridan, to slaughter the Plains Indians. Why did the Union army fight for human rights for blacks and against human rights for native American Indians?

As every competent historian knows, there was no civil war. A civil war is when two sides fight for control of the government. The southern states had seceded and formed their own country. The Confederacy had no interest in controlling Washington. The war happened because Lincoln invaded the Confederacy. The Confederacy fought because they were invaded. The North fought to maintain the Union, as Lincoln said repeatedly. The South seceded because the Northern majority in Congress passed a tariff that benefitted the North at the expense of the South. Lincoln guaranteed the South permanent protection of slavery if they would stay in the Union, but did not offer to repeal the tariff. Historians have studied the diaries and letters of soldiers on both sides, and cant find anyone who was fighting over slavery. Lincoln said that blacks were not sufficiently developed to live in society with whites. His plan was to send them back to Africa, which might have happened, as the North didnt want them, if Lincoln had not been assassinated.

Under the Reconstruction that the North imposed on the South, the South was divided into five military districts in which civil rights for whites were scant and their property was stolen by carpetbaggers and scalawags as whites lacked the protection of law and self-government. The vindictive Union simply reversed the roles of black and white to the extent that they were able.

As Lawrence Stratton and I show in our book,...

Brennan and Clapper LewRockwell

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa made a dramatic announcement this month that almost nobody in America paid any attention to. Grassley released a statement saying that four years ago, he asked the Intelligence Community Inspector General to release two Congressional Notifications written by former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

Grassley had had his requests to declassify the documents ignored repeatedly throughout the last two years of the Obama administration. He decided to try again because all of the Obama people at the CIA and DNI are gone now. This time, his request was approved.

So what was the information that was finally declassified? It was written confirmation that John Brennan ordered CIA hackers to intercept the emails of all potential or possible intelligence community whistleblowers who may have been trying to contact the Congressional oversight committees, specifically to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Simply put, Brennan ordered his people to hack into the Senate email systemagain. Grassley is the longtime chairman of Judiciary Committee, and he was understandably appalled.

First, let me explain what a Congressional Notification is. The CIA is required by law to inform the Congressional oversight committees whenever one of its officers, agents, or administrators breaks the law, when an operation requires Congressional approval because it is a covert action program, or whenever something happens at the CIA thats potentially controversial and the Agency wants to save itself the embarrassment of explaining itself to Congress later.

Brennan apparently ordered his officers to spy on the Senate. Remember, back in 2014 his officers spied on Intelligence Community investigators while they were writing the Senate Torture Report. This time, he decided to inform Congress.

But Brennan and Clapper classified the notification. It was like a taunt. Sure, Im spying on Congress, which is illegal. But its classified, so what are you going to do about it?

Grassley went through the proper channels. And even though Brennan and Clapper essentially gave him the middle finger, he didnt say anything until the documents were finally declassified. Hes a bigger man than I.

I think Grassley missed an opportunity here, though.

First, its my own opinion that John Brennan belongs in prison. He has flouted U.S. national security laws with impunity for years. Thats unacceptable. In these declassified notifications, hes confessing to hacking into the Senates computer system. Thats a violation of a whole host of laws, from illegal use of a government computer to wire fraud to espionage. There ought to be a price to pay for it, especially in light o...

Outrage All Around LewRockwell

NEW YORKAn old-fashioned party is a gathering of friends invited by the host or hostess, who foots the bill. Old-fashioned parties are very rare in New York nowadays; actually, they are nonexistent, having been replaced by the charity shindig, where the guests pay, the host or hostess profits, the gossip columns get to write about it, and the charity sometimes even gets to see some of the moola the climbers paid to get in.

Last week I went to an old-fashioned party given by Prince Pavlos of Greece and his princess, M.C. The occasion was the princess sisters birthday, Pia Getty. I ran into a lot of old friends I hadnt seen in years, and sat at a table with four ladies, some of whom I had pursued when my hair was still salt-and-pepper. Needless to say, we talked only about politics, the upcoming election, and the jihad against Trump by The New York Times and the media. I was pleasantly surprised to hear some of the opinions of people I knew to be either center or center-left when it came to the media. As one of the ladies said, No criminal or foreign leader has been called such names as Trump has by the TimesI feel outraged and very angry.

Well, The New York Times doesnt give a damn if it polarizes the nation, as long as it can cripple the Trump agenda, and a recent poll showed that 64 percent of the country believes the media is dividing the nation. The vitriol against the Republicans has been relentless, and woe to those who dare to contradict the talking heads on the idiot box. Ill give you a brief example: One 6ix9ine, a Hispanic rapper whose real name I think is Hernandez, posted a vile video that he financed of a 13-year-old girl performing oral sex. The tattoo-faced rapper escaped jail with a plea bargain because of his notoriety as a black rapper. No talking head or newspaper expressed outrage. But no actor would survive in Hollywood, especially if he or she were white, if they expressed pro-Trump views.

The left in America has managed to change the racial character of the U.S., something I dont believe has taken place anywhere else on earth. An unprecedented government-sponsored campaign flooded the country with immigrants throughout the late 60s and 70s. It continues to this day despite Trumps efforts to halt it, his stance being called racist. The media, the think tanks, the political machines, and the universities cry the R-word the moment anyone says enough is enough.

Who Lost Crimea? LewRockwell

Yesterday Trump faulted Obama for allowing Russia to annex Crimea:

It was President Obama that allowed it to happen, he said.

Trump has said something like this before more than once. Earlier this year, he complained that Obama was the one that let Crimea get away and suggested that I may have had a much different attitude. The following week, Trump said, President Obama lost Crimea, because President Putin didnt respect President Obama. The assumption that Russian actions hinge on their leaders attitude towards ours is bizarre and ignores that Russia has agency and interests that have nothing to do with us or our presidents. Trump has repeated this often enough that it is worth spending a little time to pick apart this silly talking point.

Most reports on Trumps remarks have focused on his choice to blame Obama for the annexation, but that is not nearly as important as the implication of Trumps statement that he seems to think it is up to the American president to allow or disallow the actions of other major nuclear-armed powers. Saying that Obama allowed the annexation of Crimea presupposes that there was something that Obama could or should have done to prevent or reverse it. Short of starting a shooting war with Russia and presumably causing WWIII, there was nothing Obama could have done, and it is a measure of Trumps ignorance and his belligerent instincts that he thinks otherwise. Whether Russia controls Crimea or not is hardly a vital interest of the U.S., and it certainly isnt worth risking a war. If Trump believes otherwise, he is even more reckless and irresponsible than we thought.

Written in History LewRockwell

In 1987, Paul Kennedy, a British professor of history at Yale University, unleashed a political and intellectual firestorm with the publication of his great (677-page) book, The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers. Kennedy produced a magisterial overview of the competition for global power over the past 500 years from 1500 AD to the present.

Kennedy proposed the thesis that any power that achieved, imagined it had achieved or sought to achieve and maintain a dominant hyper-power role of global dominance was doomed to lose it and then rapidly decline in overall power, wealth, prosperity and influence.

Kennedy argued with a wealth of detail drawn from different nations over his vast period of half a millennium that the very attempt to achieve and maintain such power forced every nation that attempted it into a ruinous pattern of strategic overstretch.

This demanded every major global empire in their turn to devote ruinously far too many economic resources to unproductive military power and ever more costly global commitments and conflicts.

The more ambitious the commitments, the quicker came military defeat, economic ruin and national collapse, Kennedy documented.

Kennedy published his book however at exactly the wrong moment for its abundantly documented conclusions and arguments to be taken seriously in the United States. The Cold War was just ending. The heroic actions of the Russian people in rejecting communism and leading in the dismantling of the Soviet Union were being misinterpreted as an eternal and lasting victory for the United States and for the forces of free market capitalism and minimum government regulation.

Kennedy was therefore subjected to a furious firestorm of abuse, especially from the emerging neoconservatives who under President George W Bush succeeded in imposing their reckless policies on nations across the Middle East and Eurasia. Kennedy, unlike his enraged critics was a gracious and tolerant gentleman as well as great scholar and took the firestorm in his stride.

Now more than 30 years after Kennedy published his great work, we can see how prescient, wise and visionary it truly was.

In 2016 President Donald Trump was elected on a platform of dealing with domestic crises raging from economic ruin and impoverishment to an out of control drug and opioid abuse epidemic and the collapse of law and order across the long US land border with Mexico.

That outcome provided telling testimony to the previous US policies of wasting at least $2 trillion on entirely unsuccessful nation-building and government-toppling projects ranging from Iraq to Afghanistan and since extended into such nation...

Superbugs Pose a Very Real Threat LewRockwell

Superbugs, those pesky bacteria that have evolved to become resistant to antibiotics, are on the rise and pose a very real threat to humanity. Antimicrobial resistance is a large and growing problem, with the potential for enormous health and economic consequences for the United States and the rest of the world.

According to CNBC, the media outlet which reported on a new OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) report, released Wednesday, superbug infections could cost the lives of about 2.4 million people in North America, Europe, and Australia over the next 30 years unless more is done to stem antibiotic resistance, which is already high across the globe.

Resistance is also projected to grow even more rapidly in low- and middle-income countries. In Brazil, Indonesia, and Russia, for example, between 40 percent and 60 percent of infections are already resistant, compared to an average of 17 percent in OECD countries. In these countries, the growth of antimicrobial resistance rates is forecast to be 4 to 7 times higher than in OECD countries between now and 2050.

About 29,500 persons die each year on average in the United States from infections related to eight drug-resistant bacteria. By 2050, that number is expected to rise sharply.  It is estimated that antimicrobial resistance will kill about 1 million people in the United States, in just over 30 years.

The economic toll of this superbug crisis is huge: In the United States alone the health-care costs dealing with antimicrobial resistance could reach $65 billion by 2050, according to the OECD report. That is more than the flu, HIV, and tuberculosis. If projections are correct, resistance to backup antibiotics will be 70 percent higher in 2030 compared to 2005 in OECD countries. In the same period, resistance to third-line treatments will double across EU countries. CNBC

Earlier this year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned it had detected 221 strains of a rare breed of nightmare bacteria. This bacteria is virtually untreatable by antibiotics and have special genes that enable them to spread their resi...

When Gold Is Money LewRockwell

We are getting ahead of ourselves here. Gold does not circulate as money yet. It might never do so. Perhaps the end of government currency, fiat money imposed on us by government laws, may never be replaced by what for millennia has been the peoples money, gold. Do we even wish it? Given what we have to do to get there, probably not.

It is hard to think of a life without Nanny State giving us her money-tokens to buy our sweets, telling us what to eat and what medicine to take. But Nanny State is getting long in the tooth. When she was younger, she was less controlling. Her constant refusal to allow us, the ordinary people, to do what we want is an increasing source of friction.

Growing numbers of us can see Nanny State should pack her bags. But Nanny States favourites are frightened at the prospect of no nanny. Those of us who want a life without Nanny State cant agree what it should be, and dont know what happens when she goes.

Above all, theres a feeling our secure, controlled world is coming to an end. Increasing financial instability and economic uncertainty are our common destination. Nanny State has frittered away all our pocket money, and it turns out the cupboard is now bare.

We can see the state is irretrievably bust. But governments dont go bust, economists tell us, because they just issue more money to pay the bills. This is wrong: it is going bust by other means, and those of us who dont see it are driven by wishful thinking. Ultimately, government-issued money will reflect its issuers complete bankruptcy. And theres no point in following up the collapse of one fiat currency with another. The Zimbabwe dollar is followed by the bond note, and Venezuelas bolivar is being followed by the bolivar soberano. Bust is bust is bust. It is the logical outcome for all national currencies issued by spendthrift governments.

In the entire scope of human history, government money is always ephemeral. It dances above the water for a relative day or two before it is spent and dies. One day in the future, we will turn back to gold, as we always have in the past. Governments, as demonstrated by the Mnangagwa and Maduro regimes, will resist it to the bitter end. Like children robbed of all their pocket-money, the ordinary citizen will be left with nothing. The only exchangeable value will be gold, and probably silver as well.

Those who have gold will escape the poverty of those that dont. In time it will begin to circulate as the gold haves buy things from the have-nots, and gradually with the wider distribution of gold a sense of normality will return. It matters not if we price things in gold-grammes, or whether a slimmed-down government gives it a name. Sovereigns, eagles, krugerrands. It matters not if we use them electronically, so long as the bullion is readily there, and all credit is repaid in physical gold.

Author of How To End The Autism Epidemic LewRockwell

Discussing vaccines and autism isnt an explosive topic, its thermonuclear. Both sides of the argument feel, with great passion, that the health and welfare of children is at stake. Much of that passion is the product of several lies told repeatedly. These lies form a foundation for self-interested parties to deny, obscure, and misdirect the truth about whats happening to millions of children. They pit well-meaning parents against well-meaning parents. Remove the lies and youre left with a deeply disturbing explanation for why so many children seemingly have autism out of the blue.  JB Handley Author of How To End The Autism Epidemic 

How To End the Autism Epidemic  with many people saying is the best book on the link between vaccines and autism is already an Amazon best seller (it hit the list even before it was released) and has recently been sent to all of the senators in Washington.

Author, JB Handley, whose own son Jamieson, showed warning signs that very night after receiving his 6 vaccines given at his well baby appointment at two months of age.  Handley shares that something was clearly very wrong after that visit to the trusted family paediatrician, and his once perfectly healthy baby quickly morphed into a very sickly child.

Jamieson quickly regressed into autism and was often in constant pain with severe gut issues, his future now ruined.  This tragedy, that has also become millions of other parents far too eerily similar nightmare, propelled Handley on a journey that has become his lifes mission and purpose. Nothing fuels a parents fire to do something, more than that of their own childs suffering.  It also is the reason why parents of other injured children wont go away, until something is done about this crippling crisis.

JB, who studied at the prestigious Stanford University, has a very sharp grasp and innate ability to interpret and convey science, which is truly impressive. The research gone into this book is meticulous.

The book is written in a way that is concise and incredibly compelling, but most importantly, it is easy to understand.  This is a very important factor when discussing vaccine topics, simply because much of the vaccine science  in the last few decades has been manipulated, and you usually need a very sharp mind to see how this has happened.

The way studies are written actually go over most peoples heads, and this is why most dont look at the studies themselves in detail, for they simply do not understand what things mean, or how to question the data presented, let alone to see how the statistics were manipulated.

The Wonders of Real Free Market Medical Care LewRockwell

(Note:  Im doing this one as a long narrative based on my recent experience with the free market side of the health care system.  There are lots of links at the end of the article.)

Im a middle aged, reasonably fit, healthy male. I stay active in skiing, soccer (against players often 10-20 years younger) and other activities, and have been very blessed in that I havent needed surgery to repair an injury until recently.

I was skiing back in March with my daughter. When we were getting off a lift, the guy on my left somehow stepped on the back of my left ski with the back of his right ski, which pulled the back of my ski out to the side. I fell back on my butt with my lower left leg twisted nearly 90 degrees to the outside.  Significant and immediate burning sensation on the inner side of the knee the MCL area.

Ive had a couple grade 2 right MCL sprains in soccer. This felt the same but different. We were nowhere near the car, so I had to ski basically one legged the entire way back to the lift closest to the car because of the pain. I limped to the car, drove 4 hours home, and the knee was pretty swollen by then. RICE, RICE BABY.  (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation).  A couple days later, the swelling was pretty much gone.

Unfortunately, my company had dropped our medical insurance after Obamacare caused the price to more than double, and I hadnt picked it back up, so I was cash pay. I chose to rehab at home and not go to the doctor. Within 4-6 weeks, I felt ready to play soccer, although the knee still felt a bit weak. I figured it was just the new state of things, and I played soccer for about 3 months with the knee feeling a bit weak, but otherwise fine. I ran, cut, accelerated, stopped, and scored goals pretty much like I did in 2017.

However, in August, I was playing for my team against one of our primary rivals. I played a short pass with my left foot to my team captain about 15 feet away and felt the left knee shift/buckle inside a bit. It was disconcerting because it had never done that before but didnt hurt very much. I stayed on the field and walked it off because we had no subs. The discomfort went away in about 5 minutes, so I tried sprinting again, and the knee felt ok. The next time I had to cut and twist the left knee, it shifted/buckled a bit again. I walked off the field, done.  It swelled in the hours after the re-injury.

I tried rehabbing it again at home and saw some improvement, but even the slight twisting required to get in the car gave me that same shifting/buckling feeling. I went to see a local orthopedic surgeon that Im friends with. Upon examination, my ortho friend determined that both ACLs were intact and fine (WHEW), but found that I likely had a torn meniscus. He recommended an MRI. Given that I was a cash patient, I didnt want to do it at the local hospital, as the cost would be $2000+. I ran an internet search and found a place 1.5 hours from here that...

Former Hillary Clinton Advisor: Shes Running Again in 2020 The Gateway Pundit

Hillary Clintons former adviser Mark Penn is warning the public that we should brace ourselves for another run from the power hungry sore loser in 2020.

Penn co-wrote in a Sunday op-ed for the Wall Street Journal that she wont let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.

True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies, the op-ed that Penn authored with Andrew Stein claims. She wont let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.

Like a cockroach that just wont die, or the final boss in a video game that keeps obnoxiously coming back after each defeat Clinton just wont go away.

Penn said that by reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination.

You can expect her to run for president once again, he said. Maybe not at first, when the legions of Senate Democrats make their announcements, but definitely by the time the primaries are in full swing.

Last month, Clinton admitted that while she doesnt want to run again she would like to be president.

Even some of her closest allies want her to give it a rest though.

Shes more likely to win Powerball, Philippe Reines, Clintons longtime adviser, told The Hill.

While nobody really wants to hear that womans voice ever again at least the right can recycle all their best memes from 2016.

Richard Ojeda, West Virginia Lawmaker Who Led Teacher Strikes, Will Run for President The Intercept

Richard Ojeda is running for president. Ojeda, a West Virginia state senator and retired U.S. Army major, lost his congressional bid in the states 3rd District on Tuesday, but saw the largest swing of Trump voters toward Democrats in any district around the country overperforming 2016 by more than 35 points. Still, in a district Donald Trump carried by 49 points, Ojeda, who rose to prominence leading teacher strikes in West Virginia, lost by 12 points.

Ojedas case for his candidacy is straightforward: The Democratic Party has gotten away from its roots, and he has a unique ability to win over a white, black, and brown working-class coalition by arguing from a place of authority that Trump is a populist fraud. Hes launching his campaign with an anti-corruption focus that draws a contrast with Trumps inability to drain the swamp.

His authority and one of his greatest liabilities would come, in part, from his own previous support of Trump in the 2016 general election. After backing Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primary, Ojeda refused to support Hillary Clinton, seeing her as an embodiment of the partys drift toward the elite.

The Democratic Party is supposed to be the party that fights for the working class and thats exactly what I do.

I have been a Democrat ever since I registered to vote, and Ill stay a Democrat, but thats because of what the Democratic Party was supposed to be, he told The Intercept. The reason why the Democratic Party fell from grace is because they become nothing more than elitist, that was it. Goldman Sachs, thats who they were. The Democratic Party is supposed to be the party that fights for the working class and thats exactly what I do. I will stand with unions wholeheartedly and thats the problem the Democratic Party wants to say that, but their actions do not mirror that.

Ojeda turned on Trump early in his term, concluding that the presidents interest in improving the lives of working people like those Ojeda grew up with in West Virginia, or served with in the military, was fake. Now, he wants to break the spell Trump still holds on half the country.

We have a person that has come down to areas like Appalachia and has triedand has convinced these people that he is for them, when in reality the people that he has convinced couldnt even afford to play one round of golf on his fancy country club, Ojeda...

Patriotic Rep. Steve King Gives TGP Founder Jim Hoft a Shout Out from the Herring Hill in Iowa on Armistice Day (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

On November 11, 1918, the fighting from World War I  ended at 11:11 AM and an Armistice was signed. Around the world people celebrated the end to the final and greatest war.

Across America patriots celebrated the end to World War I.

The small community of Herring, Iowa joined in the julilation.  The towns people and area farmers gathered at the bottom of the Herring Hill near the center of town. They took two long poles and spliced them together with wire. Later that night the Herring folk celebrated the end of the Great War by hoisting the towering flagpole and proudly flying Old Glory in the town center. Ralph Dean was 12-years-old and helped raised the Herring flagpole.


The flagpole is pictured in this photo taken in 1929.

Herring at that time had a country store complete with post office, a grain elevator, a Northwestern Railroad Depot, a lumber yard, and a dance hall. The country school was down the hill by the train tracks. Herring was established as a trading town and at one time previously had a pool hall, a blacksmith shop, and a livestock yard for the railroad. Years later Ralph Dean and his wife Alice moved back to Herring to raise their three girls. Over the years the community slowly disappeared. The country store burned down in the 1950s. The dance hall was torn down after World War II. The houses and grain elevator are no longer standing.

The only structure left in Herring, Iowa today is the Armistice Day flagpole.

In 2012 Jim Hoft, the founder of The Gateway Pundit, went back to Iowa and purchased what was left of Herring the Armistice Day flagpole. You see, his grandfather Ralph Dean helped hoist the pole in November 1918.

This summer we celebrated the 100 year anniversary of the Herring flagpole. Local farmers, family members and friends came out to celebrate. Rep. Steve King (R-IA) stopped by and gave a wonderful speech for the occasion.

On Sunday Steve King sent The Gateway Pundit a video from earlier today. Steve was back on the Herring Hill this afternoon and took this video.

EXCLUSIVE: Infowars Sensation Owen Shroyer: We Knew We Would Be at This Place in History The Left Is Trying to Destroy This Country (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

Alex Jones and InfoWars have been hit the hardest by the the tech industrys aggressive efforts against conservative voices.  The tech giants used the excuse of  misinformation, to ban Infowars from Apple, Google, Facebook, Youtube and Spotify in September.

While the tech giants continue to severely restrict the reach of Jones and Infowars, and wiped out content of hundreds of other conservative outlets to American subscribers as part of their fight against fake news, the Trump administration is idly standing by. InfoWars host Owen Shroyer lamented the Republican Partys lack of concern in an interview with The Gateway Pundit.

InfoWars and alternative media platforms helped Trump winning the White House in 2016 by combating the mainstream medias propaganda and lies, Owens argued.

Lets really get to the core of this Who got Trump elected? It was InfoWars. It was Alex Jones. It was Michael Savage. It was Ann Coulter. That was the biggest audience that put Trump in office, that was with Trump from day one, that already had huge audiences of millions of people built up. So, thats what got Trump in office. Now, whos getting censored more than anybody? InfoWars. Alex Jones, Shroyer said. But, why isnt anything done. It really hurts.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump appeared on an InfoWars broadcast with Alex Jones and thanked Jones for his support.

Yet, in light of the InfoWars ban from the social media platforms, Trump campaigns digital advertising and data guru and 2020 re-election campaign manager, Brad Parscale, maintains that he doesnt know who Jones is and has never heard of InfoWars , Shroyer explained.

Brad Parscale, heres a guy who is apparently the social media guru. Heres a guy who writes an exclusive for Brietbart the same day I talked to him, and Brad Parscale talked to me and he said hes never heard of Alex Jones and said he had no idea who InfoWars is. But, he does know social media is censoring conservatives. But hes never heard of Alex Jones?

This is the genius who got Trump in office with social media and hes never heard of InfoWars and Alex Jones when Trump went on Alex Jones show. He has to know that InfoWars was m...

The Emperor Has No Mind DownWithTyranny!


by Noah

Nixon was pretty damn bad. We knew he was a bad guy. Hed given some signs of mental instability too, perhaps most notably with his 1962 You wont have Nixon to kick around anymore speech. Sadly we did 6 years later. But, it wasnt until he was heading for his exit that we learned just how wacked out he was. Now we have Donald Trump. Like with Nixon, the signs were there before he got "elected" President. It was even more obvious, but his voters went to the parade and saw what they wanted to see and saw what they were told to see by the corporate media.

What we have here in Donald Trump and his supporters is a variation of the old Emperor Has No Clothes thing. He acts like he should be bowed down to by all, as if he was an emperor or dictator. His enablers and supporters look at him and they refuse to see the reality that their "president" is stark, raving mad and could destroy us all, including them, if he isnt stopped. A madman can lose his mind but that doesnt mean he cant plot his trajectory, and ours, every day.

Crazy as he is, he is able to deliberately create chaos. He does it in order to achieve a result. History and comic books are full of truly evil and demented people like Donald Trump. Consider Trump a real life example of The Joker from the Batman comics, a twisted man bent on creating mayhem simply for his own gratification and personal gain.

FL Gov. Scott Takes Legal Action to Bar Broward County Canvassing Board From Including Ballots Counted After Noon Saturday Deadline The Gateway Pundit


Rick Scott

Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) filed two emergency motions in Broward County and Palm Beach County on Sunday as he ramps up his legal fight going into the recount.

Governor Scott also took legal action to bar the Broward County canvassing board from counting ballots produced after the Saturday noon deadline previously ordered by a judge.

The Hill reported:

Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) filed two emergency motions in Palm Beach and Broward County courts on Sunday, ramping up legal efforts as recounts began in the states contested Senate race.

The motions request that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and county sheriffs impound and secure all voting machines, ballots and tabulating devices when they are not in use.

Scotts campaign also filed a complaint in Broward court asking a judge to bar the county canvassing board from including ballots counted after a noon Saturday deadline in the final vote tally.

The Broward and Palm Beach County Supervisors of Elections has already demonstrated a blatant disregard for Floridas elections laws, making it more important than ever that we continue to do everything possible to prevent fraud and ensure this recount is operated responsibly, Chris Hartline, a spokesman for Scotts campaign, said in a statement.

Senator-Elect Rick Scott will continue to fight to protect the will of Florida voters.

ALL Florida counties met the latest deadline on Saturday at noon to turn over their election totals.

Governor Rick Scott leads Sen. Nelson by 12,562 votes after three days of of Broward and Palm Beach County ballot manufacturing operations.

THIS INTERVIEW WAS UNBELIEVABLE!

Leonard Samuels, a partner at Berger Singerman and Florida Democratic Party attorney, attended the Broward County Elections Supervisor press conference on Saturday.

Investigative journalist Laura Loomer also attended the protests and press conferences.

Laura was able to ask Samuels about Brenda Snipes who has a LONG record of incompetence and criminal activity.


From the interview:

Laura Loomer: Do you think that its appropriate for Brenda Snipes to overseeing this given the fact that a judge ruled that she already destroyed ballots in a race between Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Tim Canova? I mean, that seems a little unethical for her to be overseeing this?

Leonard Samuels: Of course she should oversee this. She was appointed by a Republican governor Jeb Bush. Shes been reelected several times by the voters of Broward County Theres been not one iota of fraud. Theres been not one iota of corruption.

Laura Loomer: There has though. A judge ruled she destroyed ballots in the race between Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Tim Canova. So how can you say that theres not any shred of evidence of corruption when she destroyed ballots? If youre an elections supervisor shouldnt destroying ballots be an automatic disqualification for overseeing elections.

Leonard Samuels: I dont qualify that as fraud or corruption.

Laura Loomer: You dont qualify the destruction of legitimate ballots as fraud or corruption?

Leanard Samuels: It was way, way after the election. Debbie Wasserman Schultz won that election.

Laura Loomer: You dont not think that is fraud? And youre a lawyer for the Democrat Party?

Andrew Gillum to Hold Count Every Vote Rally at Broward County Church Sunday Evening The Gateway Pundit

One day after un-conceding the election, defeated Democrat candidate for Florida governor Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum will hold a rally at a Broward County church Sunday evening sponsored by leftist political groups in support of the recount efforts that could upend the election day victory of Republican candidate Ron DeSantis. The rally is being called, Count Every Vote: A Faith Response to the Florida Recount.

Gillum rescinded his election-night concession in an address to the media Saturday.

Gillum will be the first major candidate involved in Floridas statewide mandatory recounts to hold an event to agitate supporters. DeSantis has issued a video statement but made no public appearances. Senate candidate Republican Gov. Rick Scott has spoken to the press and done interviews while Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson has issued a statement and a video. The Agriculture commissioner race is also under a mandatory recount but is not as controversial as the governor or Senate races.

The Gillum rally will be held at 5 p.m. EST at the New Mount Olive Baptist Church in Fort Lauderdale. It is co-sponsored by several leftist groups including the Dream Defenders, SEIU and the NAACP.

Gillum and the church promoted the rally on Twitter:

Will The New Congress Be Able To Accomplish Anything Substantive? DownWithTyranny!




Is there anything the new Congress can do is a question many people are asking. As we saw earlier today, potential if absurd presidential candidate, putatively as a Democrat, Howard Schultz, the Starbucks guy, is worried that the Democratic Party is wandering too far left. Hes an idiot. Norman Solomon, in an essay for TruthOut, is far more on the mark. He notes that pundits and conservatives are urging Democrats away from popular policies that are embraced by most Americans, if not by the super-wealthy. We should expect plenty of such advice during the months ahead as Democrats take control of the House for the first time in eight years, he wrote. It may sound prudent to urge affordable health care instead of Medicare for All, or subsidies for community colleges instead of tuition-free public college. But such positions easily come across as wonky mush that offers no clear alternative to a status quo that played a role in driving populist anger into the arms of the right wing in the first place.

One problem is that the conservative Democrats from the Republican wing of the party is exactly who the DCCC stocked the new Congress with. Many of the winners campaigned on affordable healthcare, for example, instead of on Medicare-for-All. Unfortunately, not many progressive were elected. The DCCC saw to that in candidate recruitment and candidate support. Plenty of Republican-lite careerists were elected. When political campaigns are deeply authentic from the grassroots, wrote Solomon, they serve as compost to prepare the ground for future victories. In sharp contrast, theres little left to build on after Election Day in the wake of top-down campaigns that promote moderate notions in response to extremely dire problems. While commonly applauded by mass media, centrism smothers the fires of grassroots excitement. So where do we go from there?
Incantations about the need for so-called moderate policies do little to stimulate a big turnout from the Democratic base and other voters oriented to voting against Republican candidates if their opponents draw sharp contrasts between advocacy for economic justice and flacker...

Amadorismo e delrios conspiratrios marcam primeiros passos da poltica externa de Bolsonaro The Intercept

Quando Trump ligou para parabenizar Bolsonaro pela eleio, no havia nenhum integrante da campanha preparado para traduzir a conversa. O filho de um empresrio amigo do presidente eleito foi escalado para a misso. A primeira conversa entre o presidente eleito e o presidente da economia mais forte do mundo foi intermediada por um youtuber de 24 anos. Parece uma cena de filme do Mazzaropi, mas o jeitinho estabanado com que o bolsonarismo tem lidado com a poltica externa.

Bolsonaro mal foi eleito e j apresentou seu carto de visitas para o mundo. E a primeira impresso no foi nada boa. Apesar do seu programa de governo prometer uma poltica externa sem partido, o que vimos at agora ideologismo puro e simples. O capito falastro e seus comandados ainda no se deram conta de que no h mais espao para retrica eleitoral e j colocaram o pas em muitas saias justas mesmo antes de assumir o poder.

Como aquele tiozo do churrasco que no sabe de nada, mas tem uma opinio ruim para tudo, Bolsonaro e sua equipe causaram estragos nas relaes com diversos pases. Criticaram a China, o Mercosul, criaram atrito com os pases rabes e ameaaram sair do Acordo de Paris. Mas ele tem voltado atrs de quase todas essas decises, talquei?

Illinois Woman Catches Democrat Voter Fraud in St. Clair County Where They Have a History of Selling Votes for Crack The Gateway Pundit

St. Clair County in Illinois has a long history of confirmed cases of voter fraud.

One St. Clair official Kelvin Ellis was also sentenced for attempting to arrange the murder of a witness to the countys rigged voting system.

In 2015 Belleville, Illinois resident Peggy Hubbard posted an epic rant on the police shooting of young black man in North St. Louis.

Peggy compared the black communitys reaction to the shooting of Mansur Ball-Bey in North St. Louis outside a crack house with the shooting death of 9 year-old Jamyla Bolden in Ferguson. Jamyla was shot dead while studying on her bed. Peggy was outraged the liberal media made more out of the crackheads murder than that of the little girl. Peggy was called an Uncle Tom, Aunt Jemima, the White Mans Bed Wench, and the White Mans Black B*tch for speaking her mind.

on Tuesday Peggy volunteered as a poll watcher in St. Clair County. Peggy later tweeted out that she caught drunks, dementia patients and voters who did not reside in the city attempting to vote on election day.

They date to the first half of the ninth century AD, when King Gudfred and his sons reigned.

Our Sovereign Lord the King chargeth and commandeth all persons, being assembled, immediately to disperse themselves, and peaceably to depart to their habitations, or to their lawful business, upon the pains contained in the Act made in the first year of King George the First for preventing tumults and riotous assemblies.

STUNNING! California Republicans Face More Losses as Late Votes for Democrats Continue to Trickle In #StopTheSteal The Gateway Pundit

Republican candidates who led their races on election night continue to suffer losses as Democrats across the nation have been able to manufacture tens-of-thousands of new votes since election day.

Democrats stole races in Florida, New Mexico and California since election results were announced on Tuesday night.

Democrats have mysteriously found thousands of new votes in Georgia on Saturday after losing the governors seat on Tuesday.

And now several California Republican candidates who led their races by significant margins on election night days later are losing their seats as Democrats produce new votes several days later.


Dana Rohrabacher is the latest Republican to lose his race after Democrats discovered several thousand ballots after election day.

Breitbart.com reported:

Several California Republicans who appeared to have held onto their congressional seats on Election Day saw their leads narrowed or reversed as late ballots continued to be counted, almost uniformly helping Democrats.

In the 10th congressional district, Democrat Josh Harder had taken a lead of over 3,000 votes over Republican incumbent Jeff Denham by Saturday evening. Denham led by a slim margin on Election Day.

In the 48th district, incumbent Republican Dana Rohrabacher saw a small Election Day lead reversed decisively, and the race was called for Democrat challenger Harley Rouda.

In the 39th and 45th districts, Republicans Young Kim and Rep. Mimi Walters narrowly clung to leads that had diminished to just over 2,000 votes in both cases, with many more ballots still to be counted.

And in the 50th district, which the Associated Press called for incumbent Republican Duncan Hunter, Democrat challenger Ammar Campa-Najjar has refused to concede, citing the possibility of late counted ballots giving him a win.

STUNNING! Criminal Palm Beach Elections Supervisor Accuses Trump and Rubio of Trying to Disrupt Our Democracy (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

Following Tuesdays election losses, Democrats ran a ballot production operation in Broward and Palm Beach Counties for several days.

On election night Governor Rick Scott was more than 80,000 votes ahead of Democrat Senator Bill Nelson.

Since then corrupt election officials in Broward County and Palm Beach County manufactured 83,000 votes.

Elections supervisor Brenda Snipes reported 634,000 votes on election night. Since then the number of manufactured votes in Broward County soared 83,000 votes.

In Palm Beach County elections supervisor Susan Bucher did not allow media cameras into the public ballot counting. Bucher did not allow Republican watchers into the counting room.

REPUBLICANS WON'T TRY TO SOLVE THEIR SUBURBAN-WOMEN PROBLEM BY APPEALING TO SUBURBAN WOMEN No More Mister Nice Blog

Karl Rove is concerned.

Republican guru Karl Rove is sounding the alarm after steep losses in suburbs across America cost his party control of the House of Representatives....

Weve got to be worried about whats happening in the suburbs. We get wiped out in the Dallas suburbs, Houston suburbs, Chicago suburbs, Denver suburbs you know theres a pattern Detroit suburbs, Minneapolis suburbs, Orange County, Calif., suburbs, Rove said Saturday during a panel discussion for the Washington Examiners Sea Island Summit.

When we start to lose in the suburbs, it says something to us, Rove continued. We cant replace all of those people by simply picking up [Minnesotas First Congressional District] farm country and the Iron range of Minnesota because, frankly, theres more growth in suburban areas than there is in rural areas.
But what can Republicans do? Republicans in Congress will pay with their political lives if they try to cross President Trump, so he won't be convicted if there's an impeachment and therefore he's almost certain to be the 2020 nominee. He'll continue to be despised by suburban women like the ones Michelle Goldberg writes about:
In April 2017, progressives across America turned toward Georgias Sixth District for the race to fill the House seat vacated by Tom Price, whod become President Trumps (short-lived) secretary of health and human services....

A great many local women ... threw themselves into [this] campaign.

[The Democratic candidate, Jon Ossoff,] lost.... But last week, some of that investment finally paid off.

On Thursday we learned that a year and a half after Ossoffs loss, Lucy McBath, an African-American gun control advocate, had flipped the seat.

... During the Ossoff campaign, we built an army of volunteers, said Stacy Efrat, a mother of three with a full-time job whod organized voter registration drives most weekends this year. We built the Resistance in the Sixth District, and we already had our infrastructure in place to work on the Lucy election.
What will the GOP do in response to the 2018 results? I think it will try to suppress the votes of suburban white women, just the way it's tried for more than a decade to suppress the votes of young people and, especially, non-whites. (Rove, of course, was a key vote suppressor a decade ago.)

How will that be done? I'm not as clever as a Republican trying to subvert democracy, but I can make a few guesses. I know that the use of "exact match" was...

Over 100,000 Americans lost their lives in Europe during World War I.

Following his remarks FOX News host UNLOADED on the French president:

Pete Hegseth: Its typical European arrogance. It really is. So we saved your ass. And then youre going to preach to us? No really, thats how Americans look at this. Twice we did. And youre going to turn around and preach to us because we love our country, we love our flags, we love our military, we love our cops, we love our Second Amendment.

Howard Schultz, left of Trump... right of the Democratic Party

If theres one thing that people seem to think Trump proved is that virtually anyone can run for president. I suspect, though, that once hed finally driven out of office, that isnt going to be a consensus. But in 2020 several ambitious but questionably-qualified candidates will give it a go unaccomplished congressmen, freshmen senators who have never done a thing but run their mouths, businessmen galore, self-entitled billionaires, cultural celebrities in the same way Trump was

Russia was the first to exit World War I, signing a separate peace, and Putin was the last to arrive at the Arc de Triomphe 100 year commemoration ceremony of the end of World War I. He first shook hands with Macron and Merkel, then shook hands with Trump and gave Trump a thumbs up. Most of the leaders walked slowy together in the rain, but Trump and Putin did not, arriving at the Arc de Triomphe separately in their own security detail.

On the 11th Month, the 11th Day, at the 11th Hour 100 Years Ago Today The Great War Ended! The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Joe Hoft

World War I ended 100 years ago today on Armistice Day, November 11th, 1918.  Millions died in the Great War that they hoped would be the last.

Around the world there were celebrations 100 years ago.  From rural Herring, Iowa, where farmers gathered together to celebrate the end of the war while erecting a flag pole in commemoration, to Wall Street, where Americans celebrated en masse.  The great war was over!

If you travel to Australia today, you will be reminded at 11:11 am of the sacrifices that Australians gave for the great war.  Everyone stops and a voice over the load speaker of whichever business you are at will call for a moment of silence in respect for those who gave their lives in World War I.

On Armistice Day, in 1918, Australians covered Martin Place in downtown Sydney to celebrate an end to the murderous war.  (pic from Australia War Memorial).

Unfortunately this was not the war to end all wars, it turned out only to be a precursor to World War II.

Americans began arriving in Europe towards the end of the war in 1917, after years of President Woodrow Wilson trying to keep the US out of the war.  Little did anyone know that with the USs help, the end of the war would come in a year and a half.

Many Americans who would later become famous for their efforts in World War II were also important to the first World War.  West Point graduates and future generals Patton and MacArthur met during World War I.  The only time they met in person:

100 Years Since End of WWI, Fears That US Sacrifices in Europe Forgotten
November 06, 2018 9:00 AM, by Henry Ridgwell

Sunday, November 11th marks the centenary of the signing of the armistice in World War I, when the guns fell silent across the Western front, marking the end of a conflict that had killed around 40 million people.

The U.S. entered the war in 1917 after declaring war on Germany, and by the following year its contributions were vital in tipping the conflict in the Allies favor.

The intervention marked the beginning of Americas deep involvement in European security. Henry Ridgwell reports. https://www.voanews.com/a/one-hundred-years-since-end-of-world-war-i-fears-that-us-sacrifices-in-europe-are-forgotten/4646369.html

Brenda Snipes says she recommends the canvassing board ACCEPT the mixed batch of 205 provisional ballots, including at least 20 illegal votes. Attorney for Bill Nelson says he has invited one voter whose ballot was deemed illegal because signature mismatch. Canvassing board discussing

It seems unfair to be to disenfranchise 205 voters at the expense of a small number, Snipes says. And if thats being unfair to anyone, I dont think its a large enormous gg number to effect the difference between who comes out of the recount as victor.

Broward canvassing board instructs staff to transmit current results (99.997%) to the State. It is our understanding that the batch of 205 provisionals will be included in those results. Republican attorneys assumed to challenge that.

ITS OFFICIAL: Florida Races Head to Recounts After Broward County Produces Thousands of Ballots Post Election The Gateway Pundit

The Florida Secretary of State ordered a recount of the Senate and Governor races Saturday afternoon, reported the Associated Press.

Broward and Palm Beach counties have been manufacturing ballots since Tuesday night.

Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes produced THOUSANDS of ballots after the polls closed earlier this week as Democrat lawyers descended on Florida to steal the election.

Here we are againFlorida is officially heading to a recount.

Via AP:

1:55 p.m.

The Florida secretary of state is ordering recounts in the U.S. Senate and governor races, an unprecedented review of two major races in the state that took five weeks to decide the 2000 presidential election.

Secretary Ken Detzner issued the order on Saturday after the unofficial results in both races fell within the margin that by law triggers a recount.

The unofficial results show that Republican former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis led Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum by less than 0.5 percentage points, which will require a machine recount of ballots.

In the Senate race, Republican Gov. Rick Scotts lead over Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson is less than 0.25 percentage points, which will require a hand recount of ballots from tabulation machines that couldnt determine which candidate got the vote.

ALL Florida counties met the latest deadline on Saturday at noon to turn over their election totals.

Governor Rick Scott leads Sen. Nelson by 12,562 votes after three days of of Broward and Palm Beach County ballot manufacturing operations.

This is down from his 80,000 vote lead on election night.

Because of ballot stuffing, a Democrat now leads the race for Agriculture Commissioner in Florida.

Where I stopped resisiting Vox's call to resist - it's a matter of distance Rabett Run

I wasn't thrilled reading the title and intro to Yglesias' article, "House Democrats must resist Trumps infrastructure trap":


President Donald Trumps infrastructure trap is back, and for the new House Democratic majority to succeed, they need to escape it.

Its forgotten now, but in the transition winter of 2016-17, a shockingly large and diverse set of congressional Democrats from both the progressive and moderate wings of the party and including some key leaders spent enormous time and energy making friendly noises toward Trump and suggesting that the result of his election should be some kind of bipartisan infrastructure deal.

....Trump rapidly fell into the clutches of congressional Republicans hard-right agenda. He continued to tout vaporware infrastructure plans, only to eventually come up with a scheme to make grants stingier and privatize some airports, which went nowhere.

But with Democrats now running the House of Representatives, infrastructure is back. And Trumpworld figures, looking at the polls, maybe Trump and the Democrats should come together around a random debt-financed increase in infrastructure spending that lets Trump regain his reputation as a dealmaker and lets Democrats say they accomplished something.

....Since Trump is not very subtle, his team even explicitly told a group of Washington Post reporters that the infrastructure dangle is a trap designed to weaken Democrats political position. But in case anyone doesnt get the message: This is a trap designed to weaken Democrats political position.

....Democrats of course cant categorically rule out the possibility of doing a legislative deal with him. But you also don't trade away the rule of law and the basic integrity of the American government for the sake of some pork barrel spending.

Then it got better:

....Democrats also cant afford to let Trump tour the country complaining that all Democrats want to do is investigate him while he is trying to fix the countrys infrastructure.

....This requires Democrats to come up with a plan that is striking and visionary enough that normal people stand a chance of actually hearing about and understanding it. But it needs to also be genuinely transformative in a way that would make it legitimately worth doing on the off-chance that Trump somehow decides to agree to it. ....[T]he country (and the world) really does need a transformative infrastructure plan. If Trump is desperate enough for a deal, maybe hed go for it.

But the key is to put ideas on the table that would genuinely alarm the conservative movement and, more important, the corporate interests who stand behind it and force Trump to make a serious choice about breaking wi...

HERE WE GO-> Gillum, Nelson Dem Lawyers Fight to Count Non-Citizens Vote in Florida The Gateway Pundit

We knew this was coming.

Lawyers for Democrat candidates Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson argued to include a non-citizens vote Friday evening according to a transcript of a Palm Beach Canvassing Board proceeding obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Screenshot of transcript provided by the Daily Caller:

Via The Daily Caller:

Michael Barnett, chairman of the Palm Beach Republican Party, told TheDCNF that the countys canvassing board was going through provisional ballots and quickly deciding whether to allow or disallow each. This exchange is of the first non-citizens vote they encountered. We had a court reporter that we hired to sit in the proceedings, which are public, he said.

The vote was disallowed despite the objections of the lawyers because two of the three members of the canvassing board ruled that it was an impermissible vote, he said.

Marc Elias, a lawyer for Nelson, told TheDCNF: The lawyer who was present was not someone we had authorized to make such an objection. Non-citizens cannot vote in U.S. elections.

Perhaps this is why Palm Beach County elections supervisor Susan Bucher strong-armed journalists Friday evening.

Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio sounded the alarm Friday night after Palm Beach elections supervisor Susan Bucher banned cameras from public ballot counting and threatened them with arrests.

We knew illegal aliens were voting in our elections.

MARCO RUBIO: Voter Finds Two Provisional Ballot Boxes Unattended in Broward County (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) brought attention to what appears to be boxes full of provisional ballots that are not being handled in accordance with the law.

A citizen found two unattended boxes marked provisional ballot box in the Tamarac Lakes Community Center.

The citizen called the Broward County Sheriffs Office after finding the unattended boxes.

The Floridian Press reported:

The controversy surrounding unaccounted for ballots in Broward continues as provisional ballots were found unattended in a the Tamarac Lakes Community Center.

Upon finding them Saturday night, a citizen called the Broward Sheriffs Office after finding election equipment and two locked boxes marked Provisional Ballot Box.

Lt. Ulvang was notified, and Dep. Sammarco and Sgt. Rivera are presently on the scene.

Sgt. Chenoweth of the Broward Sheriffs Office spoke to Javier Manjarres of the Floridian and told him that he was there to investigate and secure the scene. After the BSO concluded their investigation, The Floridian was allowed to enter and document the voting equipment and the provisional ballots that were left.

Senator Rubio posted video and photos of the unattended ballot boxes to his Twitter account Saturday morning.

RUBIO: I dont know whats in this sealed box found this morning by #BrowardSheriff. But this dysfunction in #BrowardElections is not acceptable.

At a minimum it undermines public trust in the election & creates opportunity for mischief.

Maybe this box found this morning has office supplies in it. But if it contains just a single vote, it should have been handled in accordance with the law, NO MATTER WHO IT WAS A VOTE FOR.

Tic-Toc SATURDAY NOON Is Deadline For Crooked Democrats in Broward, Palm Beach Counties to Turn in Election Results The Gateway Pundit

** Saturday at noon is the deadline for the corrupt Democrats in Broward and Palm Beach Counties to cease manufacturing votes and turn in their results.


Palm Beach County elections supervisor Susan Bucher and Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes.

Democrats have perfected ballot manufacturing operations in Broward and Palm Beach Counties.

On Tuesday Broward County Elections supervisor Brenda Snipes reported 634,000 votes were cast in the midterm election in her county.

On Friday morning Broward County Elections officials now say 717,000 votes were cast in the midterm election.

Broward County Democrats have mysteriously found 83,000 votes in two days!

In Palm Beach County elections supervisor Susan Bucher will not allow media cameras into the public ballot counting. She did not allow Republican watchers into the counting room. She continues to manufacture votes and last night she refused a court order to submit overvotes and undervotes to the Palm Beach County Canvassing Board to review.

The two counties were asked to stop their voter manufacturing operations by noon today.

CBS Miami reported:

Its deadline day in Florida. Noon Saturday is the deadline for Election Supervisors to turn in a countys first unofficial results.

Later in the day, Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner is expected to certify those results. If the margin in a statewide race is less than 0.5 percent, Detzner is required to order a machine recount.

Right now, thats the case for the U.S. Senate race between Florida Governor Rick Scott and incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, as well as the contests for state Agriculture Commissioner and Governor.

Roger Stone Speaks Out: The Lowdown on Brenda Snipes and WHAT RICK SCOTT MUST DO The Gateway Pundit

By Roger Stone

Roger Stone was the central figure organizing the Brooks Brothers Brigade in 2000 that saved the Bush presidency from being stolen by Democrats in Florida.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Three months ago I urged Florida Governor BOE Supervisor Brenda Snipes based on history of election fraud and incompetence. My call for Snipes ouster was based on the BOE handling of the Republican congressional primary in Broward County in which Snipes refuses to provide results of early voting, absentees voting or election day voting providing only grand totals that reveal that a perennial candidate that spent noting beat two better funded and organized challengers. This despite photographic evidence that some candidates names did not appear on the ballot at all and in many precincts more Republicans voted than our registered in the party.

It not as if this Snipes first venture at voter fraud. In May 2018, the Sun Sentinel reported a judge ruled the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office violated state and federal laws by destroying ballots from a 2016 Democratic Congressional race too soon and while the ballots were the subject of a lawsuit against the office. Once again Canovas name did not appear on the ballot in certain precincts and in some precincts more Democrats voted than are registered.

Progressive Tim Canova challenged Snipes in Court over the treatment of his campaign to unseat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the Democratic primary. In September Snipes actively approved the destruction of the ballots fraudulently signing a certification that said no court cases involving the ballots were pending.

Snipes, a close political ally of Wasserman Shultz said the action was a mistake during testimony she gave in the case, saying the boxes were mislabeled and there was nothing on my part that was intentional about destroying the contested ballots.

But this is just the tip of a long record of corruption and incompetence which would have provide Governor Scott sufficient reason to remove Snipes and appoint a Democrat with a reputation for integrity and honesty.

In August of 2016 CBS Miami reported the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office inadvertently posted election results 30 minutes before the polls closed at 7 p.m.

That caused Secretary of State Ken Detzner to send memos to the Broward County State A...

Ted Malloch: Remembering European Wars The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Ted Malloch author of Davos, Aspen and Yale

November 11th is Veterans Day.

Why?

Because in 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in World War I, then known as the Great War.

It is called Remembrance Day in the UK and Europe.

Patriots wear red poppies, the color of the blood stained fields of Flanders, to recall the tragic events of both European-made World Wars.

Europeans sunk their continent, and then America, into both sad episodes. It was German hegemony, imperialistic militarism and ideological arrogance that caused both sorry and costly affairs.

Some 17 million people were killed in WWI and 60 million in WWII.

This year on November 11th Presidents Trump and Macron and other European leaders will assemble in Paris to celebrate the end of the First World War.

It is the hundredth anniversary of the end of WWI.

Trump should gently remind them that America saved their ass, rebuilt their countries, and has sustained their peace.

They owe us a note of thanks and appreciation and should shoulder their own defense bills.
And perhaps occasionally, they should nod to the significant American sacrifice of blood, sweat and tears made on their behalf.

Macron, running in his globalist direction, wants to decry military power while calling for a new EU army, end the nation state, and contain rising populism.

He is for everything Trump is against and it is time to take note.

Trump should give him a history lesson.

You see, there is a tendency towards rewriting history on the European continent, which must be addressed.

What has evolved into the EU has mistakenly taken to claiming credit for the postwar peace.

That is a patent lie.

This was a peace, which was and is corner stoned by NATO, the American bases peppered throughout Germany, and the nuclear weapons we parked in Turkey and Holland.

The Pax Americana didnt come from the European Coal and Steel Community; it was not birthed or paid for by Brussels bureaucrats. Those institutions were part of the peace taking not their cause.

Never forget it was the American burden and our contribution in blood and might that secured European freedom.

Of course, parts of the Old World, being victimized under communism so shortly after Nazism, might rightly ask what peace we speak of?

Decades of oppression gave rise to the heroes of the anti-communist Solidarity Movement and Saint John Paul II the Great, who...

Democrats Who Voted to Deregulate Wall Street Got Wiped Out in a Setback for Bank Lobbyists The Intercept

The most high-profile bipartisan legislation of the Trump era turned out to be electoral poison or at least, not a prophylactic for the Senate Democrats who decided to support it, which could serve as a lesson for party leaders wishing to join with the president on other bills next year.

The Crapo bill, a bank deregulation measure co-authored by Senate Banking Committee chair Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, and several centrist Democrats, passed Congress this spring with the help of 17 members of the Senate Democratic Caucus and 33 House Democrats.

In the 10 states where Donald Trump won in 2016 and a Democratic senator stood for re-election this year, the three who opposed the Crapo bill all won a greater share of votes in their states than the seven who voted for it. Senators voting no averaged 54.7 percent of the vote and won by 10 percentage points, while the yes votes averaged 48.1 percent and lost by 1.5 points. The only Republican who lost, Dean Heller of Nevada, also voted for the Crapo bill, and fell by 5 points to Jacky Rosen, who voted against the legislation in the House.

The Crapo bill rolled back a number of elements of the Dodd-Frank Act, including, in particular, stiffer regulations on banks that have between $50 billion and $250 billion in assets. A recent proposal from the Federal Reserve, using authority granted by the Crapo bill, expands that deregulation up to banks with as much as $700 billion in assets.

Senate Democratic supporters justified their votes by casting the legislation as a tweak to benefit community banks in small towns and rural areas, despite its greatest impact occurring well up the chain. In fact, the bill has already led to accelerated consolidation and further disappearance of community banks.

In reality, the Democrats rationale was likely more cynical: They thought supporting the bill would unlock campaign contributions from the financial...

Fake Hate: Liberal Jew Arrested for Drawing Swastikas Threatened to Rape Woman Before 2016 Election You F*cking Republican The Gateway Pundit

Heath Levey, a liberal Jew, was arrested this week and charged with drawing swastikas in the Uptown area of Chicago this week.

In 2016 this unhinged Democrat was arrested before the 2016 election for threatening to rape a Republican woman. He told her, Im going to rape you, you f*cking Republican.

Heath Levey is gay.

An Uptown man who is charged with two counts of hate crime for drawing swastikas on fences and a garage in his neighborhood is Jewish and was arrested five days before the 2016 election for allegedly threatening to rape and kill an Uptown woman who he believed to be a Republican, according to court records and friends of the man who spoke with CWBChicago.

Heath A. Levey, 51, was arrested Wednesday afternoon outside his home in the 4200 block of North Clarendon after police identified him as the swastika- and graffiti-drawing man who had been recorded on surveillance video November 2nd, four days before Election Day.

But friends of Levey on Facebook, contacted by CWBChicago Friday, said he comes from a Jewish family and has been openly gay and a professed Democrat for years.

Court files reviewed by CWBChicago today reveal that days before the 2016 presidential election, Levey was accused of assaulting an Uptown woman and damaging her property.

Why Does Governor Rick Scott Refuse to Step in and Remove Criminal Palm Beach County SOE Susan Bucher? The Gateway Pundit

With each passing hour criminal Democrats are manufacturing votes in corrupt Palm Beach and Broward Counties in Florida.

Democrats run a ballot production operation in Broward and Palm Beach Counties and have perfected it.

On election night Governor Rick Scott was more than 80,000 votes ahead of Democrat Senator Bill Nelson.

Since then corrupt election officials in Broward County have manufactured 83,000 votes. Elections supervisor Brenda Snipes reported 634,000 votes on election night. Since then the number of manufactured votes in Broward has soared to 83,000 votes.

In Palm Beach County elections supervisor Susan Bucher will not allow media cameras into the public ballot counting. She did not allow Republican watchers into the counting room. She continues to manufacture votes and last night she refused a court order to submit overvotes and undervotes to the Palm Beach County Canvassing Board to review.

Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher have broken the law. They continue to break the law. Governor Scott continues to lose his lead in chunks. Yet he refuses to call in US Marshals.

BERNIE SANDERS ONLY KNOWS WHAT HE READS IN THE PAPERS No More Mister Nice Blog

After the midterms, Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi interviewed Senator Bernie Sanders. Among other things, Sanders said this to Taibbi:

And heres what I think, Matt, that maybe nobody else in the world believes. As you know, Trump is a 100-percent political opportunist, who has no political views other than how he can win elections.

Well, thats true.

Today, if he is a racist and a sexist, tomorrow he may be a great civil rights champion if he thinks it gets him five more votes. He has no core values. I would not be shocked that if the Democrats passed popular, good legislation, that Trump would look around him and say, Hey, why not? What do I give a damn? And he may come on board, because ultimately he doesnt believe in anything except winning. So I believe its terribly important that the Democrats come out of the gate full-steam ahead and start passing really good legislation that puts Trump and the Republicans on the defensive.
I agree with these folks that Sanders is completely off base:



But in answer to the question "Who believes that?!" I'll just point to the piece Robert Costa wrote for The Washington Post on election night. I quoted it the next day:
Conservatives who have learned to love President Trump, a relative newcomer to their movement, could emerge from Tuesdays election anxious that he might now leave them in the cold to cut deals with newly empowered congressional Democrats.

On the horizon are an array of hot-button issues that are top priorities for conservatives but could prove tempting areas of compromise for the famously transactional Trump as he seeks to repair his presidency ahead of the 2020 election....

He has carried the ball as effectively as anybody for the right, but the reality is, there is not a deep philosophical bent there, said Ed Rollins, co-chairman of the pro-Trump Great America super PAC. Hes always been about getting what you can get.

Ted Malloch: The Democrat Leading the Election Thieves in Broward County The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Ted Malloch author of The Plot to Destroy Trump

If you see this mug have him arrested.

He is the chief thief in the Democrat effort to steal the Florida election.

His name is Marc Elias.

He comes with lots of baggage.

In April 2016 the law firm Perkins Coie, on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, retained Fusion GPS to complete the notorious and fabricated opposition research on Donald Trump.

Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, and founded in 1912, Perkins Coie LLP is the oldest and largest law firm in the Pacific Northwest.

While it serves corporate clients, Perkins Coie is perhaps best known for representing political clients. One kind of political clients, Democrats.

The chair of its prestigious Political Law Group is one, Marc Elias.

His focus is on representing public officials, candidates, parties, Political Action Committees (PACs), and tax-exempt organizations.

As a lawyer, Elias advertises himself as knowledgeable in campaign finance, government ethics, lobbying disclosure, and white-collar criminal defense.

Elias is an avowed expert on the Foreign Agents Registration Act and the Lobbying Disclosure Act. He focuses on government gift rules, pay-to-play rules, and advises on voting rights.

Yes, voting.

He has represented numerous clients in political corruption charges.

As general counsel to Hillary Clinton for America, he was responsible for the presidential campaign of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

He did the same for John Kerry in 2004.

We would later learn from Michael Isikoff and David Corns book titled, Russian Roulette, released in March 2018, that Barack Obamas 2012 re-election campaign hired Fusion GPS to dig up dirt on his rival John Kerry.

According to Isikoff and Corn, the campaigns payments to Fusion GPS, which were not disclosed to the public, were reported as legal bills to the campaigns law firm, one Perkins Coie.

Eliass major clients include the Democratic National Committee, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Democratic Governors Association, and dozens and dozens of Democrat US senators, governors, and representatives and their campaigns.

He is in other words, Mr.Democrat.

Following the 2014 election, Elias was appointed by the DNC chair, Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Democrat from Florida, to review all key components of the role of the Democratic Party in elections.

Jesus vs White Evangelicals DownWithTyranny!




Wonderful video above; please watch the whole 3 minutes. It starts with GOP Jesus condemning a refugee child to a detention center. Ha, ha right? Currently, American evangelical Christians, in selling out to TV hucksters and snake oil salesmen, have allowed their lot to be thrown in with Trump, utterly forsaking the actual Jesus. 100%. So they have the Jesus in the video instead.

A couple of weeks ago, Samuel Smith, writing for the Christian Post reported, that according to new polling data from the Public Religion Research, most white evangelicals say immigration, increasing racial diversity harms America. White evangelical protestants are the only religious demographic in the United States in which the majority views immigrants as a threat to American values and sees the country's increasing racial diversity as a bad thing, a new survey has found.

Thats what theyve come to believe, the hell with Jesus message. And theyre at odds with all other identified religious groups on many questions relating to immigration, race, the #MeToo movement and of course, the illegitimate, fake president. And their self-satisfied bigotry goes well beyond the abortion issue. In contrast to their anti-Jesus beliefs, 80% of black Protestants, 75% of religiously unaffiliated, 74% of Hispanic Catholics, 73% of non-Christian religious Americans, 52% of white mainline Protestants and white Catholics hold a negative opinion of Seor Trumpanzee and his fascist orientation and policies.
While white evangelicals are known for having strong conservative stances on issues like same-sex marriage and abortion, the survey showed that white evangelicals are the religious group most opposed to immigrants and immigration.

As data shows that the U.S. will become a minority white nation by t...

When the Florida Broward County Elections staff member reported that he/she saw elections staff committing crimes by filling out of blank ballots, he/she was fired and told not to come back!

Former Florida Lieutenant Governor Jeff Kottkamp tweeted

The lawsuit Kottkamp is referring to is related to Republican Matt Caldwell The News-Press reported:

Matt Caldwell has followed Gov. Rick Scotts lead in filing a lawsuit Friday against the Broward County Supervisor of Elections in one of the states closest races.

The campaign of the Republican candidate for agricultural commissioner sent a news release Friday afternoon announcing that his attorneys filed a lawsuit in the 17th judicial circuit asking the court to protect the integrity of all ballots and all public records relating to the election for Commissioner of Agriculture.

Caldwell thought he had edged out a victory in the agricultural commissioner race Tuesday night when he had about a 40,000 vote lead over Democratic candidate Nikki Fried.

But the latest vote count shows Caldwell losing by 3,120 votes to Fried. The difference between the candidates is .04 percent, signaling an automatic recount, and a likely manual recount.

This whole thing should be shut down immediately and those involved arrested and put in jail.  This impacts the entire nation, not just the crooks running Broward County elections.
