  • Crunching the Numbers in the Florida Election Exposes Rampant Fraud

    DC Dirty Laundry ^ | 11/15/2018 | Tony Elliott
    Again, we have the perfect display of voter fraud and manipulation taking place in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties. It’s getting to the point that these two precincts, in particular, are expected to finagle the votes on every level and at any given election, Federal, state, or otherwise. To most people, when they hear the news that these counties are finding thousands of uncounted votes after the election is over, they think a recount is in order, nothing else because most simply cannot accept the thought that their government could be so corrupt as to fix an election. Since no...

    TALLAHASSEE — A federal court judge on Thursday ruled that thousands of voters whose votes weren’t counted because of issues with their signatures on their mail-in or provisional ballots have two more days to challenge the decision to reject their votes. The order from U.S. District Court judge Mark Walker came hours before a 3 p.m. deadline for counties to report the results of a machine recount for the U.S. Senate, governor and agriculture commissioner contests, throwing more uncertainty over a process that faces a spate of legal challenges...[snip].....

  • SINCE ELECTION DAY: Democrats Pick Off Over a Dozen GOP House Seats and 2 Senate Seats (tr)

    Democrats had a decent haul on election night but since Election Day the Democrats have had a spectacular run. In the US Senate Democrats picked up two seats since Election Day. ** In Montana Senator Jon Tester — who was behind on election day — had a huge haul overnight and won by 5 points. ** In Arizona Taliban-supporting Marxist Kyrsten Sinema was declared the winner a week after votes were cast after being behind on election night ** In Florida Democrats have discovered a secret stash of 83,000 votes since election day! Senator Bill Nelson is now surprisingly only...
  • Trump Era NICS Checks for October, 2018 remain high, over Two Million

    The number of National Instant background Check System (NICS) background checks for October of 2018 is slightly more than the number from 2017. In October of 2017, there were 2,030,391 NICS checks. In October of 2018, there were 2,086,895 background checks. This does not mean more firearm sales for October of 2018 compared to October of 2017, because the character of NICS checks has been changing.The number of NICS checks for carry permits and carry permit rechecks are now almost as numerous as the checks for firearms and any other purposes. The permit and permit rechecks for October of...
  • Miami-Dade is halfway through its recount. Broward hasn’t started yet.

    By noon on Monday, Miami-Dade managed to recount about half of the more than 800,000 votes cast in the 2018 election. Broward County had not yet started its state-mandated recount. The stark contrast in pace from Florida’s two largest sources of ballots highlights the pressure facing Broward as it tries to meet a Thursday afternoon deadline to recount the more than 700,000 votes cast in the largely Democratic county.

    Two former aides to the late senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) are publicly criticizing the Republican Party for seeking to cast doubt on the results of the Senate race in Arizona, where Democrat Kyrsten Sinema is narrowly edging out Republican Martha McSally. The tweets by Mark Salter on Saturday and John Weaver on Sunday come amid ramped-up scrutiny of the race, in which Sinema leads by a little more than one percentage point.

    Just tuned in this early am to see how the Miami media is treating the events over the weekend. Broward is said to have "a rough start"; but Palm Beach county is mostly ignored. Instead, the big story is MIAMI-DADE and how the NAACP is mad 'cause votes that came by mail on SATURDAY aren't counted. The only info on Palm Beach is the whining supervisor of elections who says she can't do the job. NOTHING on how the judges have ruled against the Broward and Palm Beach crooks.

    FULL TITLE: STUNNING! California Republicans Face More Losses as Late Votes for Democrats Continue to Trickle In #StopTheSteal 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 governor’s seat on Tuesday. And now several California Republican candidates who led their races by significant margins on election night...

    Is it on purpose? Is it bad luck? Or is it that she’s just terrible at her job? The courts have reprimanded Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes on multiple occasions for veering outside of state laws when it comes to her Election Day operations. She’s sent ballots with duplicate pages, left off a ballot initiative completely, which prompted a lawsuit, and she illegally destroyed congressional ballots in 2016 (via Miami Herald): Even beyond her own reprimand for authorizing the destruction of ballots, Snipes cannot deny the department’s patchy track record. In 2016, early voting results for Broward were posted...

    Two voting rights groups are asking Gov. Rick Scott to remove himself from any oversight of the 2018 election. They said that if he doesn’t, they will take him to court. In a letter to Scott released to the media, the League of Women Voters and Common Cause said he should step down to ensure there’s no appearance of any impropriety, undue influence or conflict of interest. The groups said that Scott intentionally “politicized” his oversight of the elections... ....the state’s election division, which Scott runs, said Saturday that its observers in Broward had seen “no evidence of criminal activity.”

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:...
  • Governor Rick Scott warns of 'rampant fraud' possible in Broward, Palm Beach counties

    Governor Rick Scott delivered a blistering report Thursday on the offices of supervisors of elections in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Addressing the media in front of the governor's mansion, Scott said there could be "rampant fraud" in the election practices of the two counties. Scott said at the end of election night, the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office said 634,000 votes had been cast. By 2:30 p.m. Thursday, the office reported 712,040 ballots counted with an unknown number of ballots remaining. Scott said his office has filed a lawsuit and is asking the Florida Department of Law Enforcement...

    After a hard-fought and often nasty campaign, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brian Kemp has won the race to become the state’s next governor over House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams. Kemp eked out a victory with fewer than 70,000 votes separating him from Abrams. Quixotic Libertarian candidate Ted Metz picked up just over 37,000 votes. Howard Dean ✔ @GovHowardDean She should not concede. The election was almost certainly stolen by a candidate who supervised his own “election”

    The Hill ^ | 11/8/2018 | Kristin Tate
    If there’s one thing that the left is consistently poor at, it’s managing expectations. Since President Trump’s inauguration, his opponents hung their fortunes on the idea of a massive blue wave to sweep away congressional Republicans in the midterms. Instead, we saw a modest Democratic gain in the House of Representatives and a strong Republican gain in the Senate. Democrats lost crucial races where they ran candidates too far left to carry moderate or conservative districts; it was moderate Democrats who had the best shots, while most of the hardcore leftists lost race after race Tuesday. The left believed that...

    While the headlines draw public attention to the sensation of the day, a relentless current of extreme leftist activism is eroding the shores of America’s heritage. Lost in the outcome of the November election is the precarious stability of our belief that America’s dedication to the ideal that we will always be free to determine our personal destiny will not disappear. In major races such as the Governorship in Florida and Georgia and the Senate seats in Texas and Arizona, committed far left socialist candidates came within a hair of defeating conservative republican candidates. This outcome should be a wake-up...

    CNN ^ | November 7, 2018 | Caroline Kelly
    Florida Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson called Wednesday for a recount in his race for re-election against Republican Gov. Rick Scott. In a statement from Nelson's office, the longtime incumbent said Scott had prematurely declared victory in the race, which CNN has not yet called. In Florida, an automatic recount is triggered when the final margin is less than .5% and is not triggered by candidate requests. Votes were still being counted Wednesday morning, but Scott's lead was within that margin, according to CNN projections. The initial vote count won't be finalized until Saturday at noon.
