    Sickening. No wonder the Democrats are yelping for the “caravan” invasion. It would insure their despotic future. Now is the time to get to the bottom of the decades-long escalation of Democrat vote fraud. This is the opportunity to drill down on the Democrats’ war on free and fair elections. Trump cannot do this alone. And it’s not just about Florida, Arizona and Missouri. The Democrats have been doing this for years. They wail about voter suppression, but their voter fraud crimes are the ultimate suppression of the American voter. https://gellerreport.com/2018/11/200k-fla- voters-noncitizens.html/

    The Democratic Party of Georgia tweeted Saturday evening that a "handful" of Georgia counties reported thousands of "new" absentee, early, and Election Day votes not accounted for by Republican candidate Brian Kemp. Kemp, who resigned as secretary of state on Thursday, maintains a lead and has asserted victory, even though Abrams has yet to concede.

  • Final Florida Vote Count (Scott+12562) (DeSantis +33684).

    Florida Department of Elections ^ | 11/10/18 | Florida Department of Elections
    All counties have completely reported everything except overseas and military ballots. https://floridaelectionwatch.gov/CountyReportingStatus There aren't any more ballots in Broward or Palm Beach. As I predicted in another thread, Scott holds a 12.5K lead. No recount ever, anywhere, in history has overturned a lead of that magnitude. The largest change in votes in a recount previously was Gore's attempted theft of Florida in 2000, and even with all the shenanigans and hanging chads, he only managed to turn about 1200 votes. This is 10x that number for Scott and nearly 30x that number for DeSantis.

    Miami Herald ^ | November 09, 2018 10:38 PM Updated 1 hour 2 minutes ago | Alex Harris
    Broward’s elections supervisor accidentally mixed more than a dozen rejected ballots with nearly 200 valid ones, a circumstance that is unlikely to help Brenda Snipes push back against Republican allegations of incompetence. The mistake — for which no one had a solution Friday night — was discovered after Snipes agreed to present 205 provisional ballots to the Broward County canvassing board for inspection. She had initially intended to handle the ballots administratively, but agreed to present them to the canvassing board after Republican attorneys objected.
  • James Comey discussed sensitive FBI business on his private email [hundreds of times]

    11/09/2018 6:38:20 PM PST · by springwater13 · 35 replies
    Fired FBI chief James Comey used his private Gmail account hundreds of times to conduct government business — and at least seven of those messages were deemed so sensitive by the Justice Department that they declined to release them. The former top G-man repeatedly claimed he only used his private account for “incidental” purposes and never for anything that was classified — and that appears to be true. But Justice acknowledged in response to a Freedom of Information request that Comey and his chief of staff discussed government business on about 1,200 pages of messages, 156 of which were obtained...

    FOX News ^ | 11/09/2018 | By Gregg Re
    A midterm election season that appeared quite settled Tuesday night has suddenly entered a bitterly contested overtime, with Arizona’s Senate candidates locked in a tight race and trading the lead as votes trickle in – and Florida reprising its 2000 role as the center of a ballot-counting brawl complete with armies of lawyers and allegations of local corruption. In Arizona, Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema suddenly took a narrow 9,600-vote lead over GOP opponent Martha McSally late Thursday, with some 400,000 votes left to count in a closely watched race that will determine the size and influence of the Republican Senate...

    Florida Republican Governor Rick Scott, who is involved in a tight contest with incumbent Democratic US Senator Bill Nelson for one of the state's US Senate seat, made claims on Thursday that officials in two Florida counties are tampering with election results. Scott, using his authority as governor, got involved in his own race by ordering law enforcement officials to investigate board of election actions in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Scott's US Senate campaign, along with the Republican Senate campaign arm, filed a lawsuit claiming that election officials in Broward County are refusing to release public records. “Every Floridian...

This new tranche of ballots triggered a mandatory machine recount in the governor’s race and a hand recount in the U.S. Senate race. UPDATE #2:...

    Sun Sentinel ^ | 11-8-2018 | Skylar Swisher
    Gov. Rick Scott’s campaign for Senate filed a lawsuit Thursday night against Broward County’s election head and questioned whether “rampant fraud” could be happening with the counting of votes in South Florida’s Democratic stronghold counties. Scott, a Republican, holds a 15,079 vote advantage over incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson. In a news conference at the governor’s mansion, Scott questioned how “votes are coming out of nowhere” in Democratic-leaning Broward and Palm Beach counties. He said he has ordered the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate. He blasted Palm Beach elections chief Susan Bucher and Broward elections head Brenda...
