  • What Happened to Lindsey Graham? He’s Become a Conservative ‘Rock Star’

    NYT ^ | 11/3/2018 | SHERYL GAY STOLBERG
    Mr. Graham, crisscrossing the country to turn out the Republican vote against the centrist Democratic senators who were once his natural allies, lapped it up. He has been basking in the exaltation of Trump backers ever since his lacerating defense of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh. His own transformation from Trump-basher to Trump defender seems complete.
  • GOP Cites Numerous Issues at Polling Sites Ahead of Likely Pennsylvania Recount (Rat cheating alert)

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | March 14, 2018 | Brent Scher
    Republicans are citing numerous problems at polling sites in Tuesday's special election in Pennsylvania, which remains too close to officially call but appears to be trending toward an extremely narrow victory for Democrat Conor Lamb. [Snip] Among the listed concerns are "miscalibrated" voting machines in Allegheny County, the only county of four in the district that went for Lamb, according to the source, who said there have been many reports of voters who intended to vote for Saccone ending up casting a ballot for Lamb. Furthermore, Republicans say their attorneys were ejected from polling sites as the absentee ballots were...

    Hackers competing in a contest at a Las Vegas convention breached the security of several voting machines, pointing to glaring deficiencies in the security of US elections. The Hill: Tech minds at the annual "DEF CON" in Las Vegas were given physical voting machines and remote access, with the instructions of gaining access to the software. According to a Register report, within minutes, hackers exposed glaring physical and software vulnerabilities across multiple U.S. voting machine companies' products. Some devices were found to have physical ports that could be used to attach devices containing malicious software. Others had insecure Wi-Fi connections,...
  • Kobach: 'We may never know' if Clinton won popular vote

    The Hill ^ | July 19, 2017 | Max Greenwood and Ben Kamisar
    Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state and vice chairman of President Trump's voter fraud panel, said the country "may never know" if Hillary Clinton actually won the popular vote. Pressed by NBC News's Katy Tur in a Wednesday interview about whether Clinton won the popular vote in the 2016 election, Kobach quickly cast doubt on the results, saying, "We will probably never know the answer to that question." But he said the votes that led to President Trump's electoral victory in November were "absolutely" in doubt, as well.

    NY Times ^ | December 14, 2016 | Dahlia Lithwick and David S. Cohen
    On Monday, members of the Electoral College will vote in Donald J. Trump as president. Though he lost the election by nearly three million votes and almost daily generates headlines about new scandals, the Democratic Party is doing little to stop him. If you've been asking yourself "Where are the Democrats?" you're not alone. Since the election, top Democrats have been almost absent on the national stage. Rather, they have been involved largely in internecine warfare about how much to work with Mr. Trump. The Hillary Clinton campaign, trying to encourage a peaceful transition, has gone almost completely dark, with...

    ZeroHedge ^ | December 12, 2016
    Paul Joseph Watson's latest video, once again, systematically deconstructs the hypocrisy of the left and their latest dangerous effort to undermine the entire 2016 presidential election by utilizing their friends in the media to spin the Russian election hacking narrative without a single shred of actual evidence. While the full video is posted below, as always below are a couple of our favorite lines. On the left's inability to process their loss and willingness to risk anything and everything to have it overturned: The post-election riots failed. The death threats against electoral college members failed. Jill Stein's recount failed. Your...

    NBC New York ^ | November 8, 2016 | Lisa Fernandez and Mark Matthews
    Two women, naked from the waist up, burst into a midtown Manhattan polling station early Tuesday, shouting: “Out of our polls Trump, out of our polls Trump!” The women were soon escorted out of the basement of P.S. 59 at 233 E. 56th Street, where Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is expected to vote later. The women wore jeans but no tops. One had the word “Trump” near her collarbone and the words “Grab your b---s” scrawled on her belly.

    Video: 30 seconds at link. EXCLUSIVE: An unidentified male on Sunday potentially violated Ohio election law by standing outside a polling station to hand out invitations to an event touting appearances by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and NBA star LeBron James. “It is clear that this is extremely questionable, if not illegal behavior,” a spokesman for Secretary of State Jon Husted’s office said after reviewing a video of the incident taken by the Fox News Channel. Husted told Fox last week that his office would investigate any allegation of fraud or tampering that is brought to his attention by...

    Brett Bartlett Mauthe arrived at his Texas polling place Monday morning ready to vote. It was the first day of early voting in Bulverde, a tiny town 30 minutes north of San Antonio. On his head he wore a hat supporting GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, Mauthe told KSAT 12 News. His T-shirt read “basket of deplorables,” a reference to a comment Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton made about Trump’s supporters. Mauthe was stopped before he could cast his ballot. According to the election code, not just in Texas but in many other jurisdictions across the country, campaigning for or promoting...

    Donald Trump is playing with fire. The Republican presidential nominee's claim that the election is being rigged against him represents the most outlandish moment yet in a campaign devoted to dismantling political norms. [Snip] Should he lose, it threatens the legitimacy of those left to govern after the most anarchic election in modern history. [Snip] His accusations alone, experts say, could inflict long-standing damage on the US political system itself by eroding trust in the probity of the electoral process.

    The Hill ^ | October 17, 2016 | Jessie Hellmann
    More than four-in-one of American voters think the election could be "stolen" from Donald Trump due to voter fraud, a poll released Monday shows. The Politico/Morning Consult Poll finds that 41 percent of voters think widespread voter fraud could cause the GOP presidential nominee to lose the election. Amid Trump's increased warnings about a "rigged election," 73 percent of Republicans think the election could be stolen from him, compared to 17 percent of Democrats. Over the past week, Trump has casted doubt on the American electoral system, saying he believes the results will be "rigged" at many polling places. "The...

    American Thinker ^ | October 14, 2016 | Jay Michaels
    The major firms need to get the election right if they are going to be trusted and hired. So this year they're overcounting Democrats. Buried deep in Reuters' article on the latest Reuters/Ipsos nation-wide poll, which showed Donald Trump slipping to an 8-point deficit after the tape furor and the debate, was the following information: ... Among the likely voters, the poll counted 798 Democrats and 586 Republicans. Why the sampling imbalance? [Snip] Could it be that the poll is trying to factor in votes that are coming in under the radar? If so, this is good news for Donald...

    Investment Research Dynamics ^ | September 12, 2016 | Stewart Dougherty
    I believe the Deep State postponed the election today, using Clinton’s probably staged “health event” as the opening act of a drama that will unfold over the next several days to few weeks. The Deep State is in the process of pulling Clinton out of the game. The Deep State knows several things. First, they know that the polls they manipulate showing that Clinton is ahead of or head-to-head with Trump are deliberate, doctored lies. They know that the true numbers demonstrate her campaign is disintegrating. This is reinforced by the fact that during her campaign appearances she plays to...

    The conditions of John Hinckley Jr.'s full-time release from a psychiatric hospital after a three-decade long commitment are a laundry list of dos and don'ts meant to help him assimilate into society — he can’t own a gun, he must work or volunteer three days a week, and he can't have any overnight guests while staying alone at his mother’s home in Williamsburg, Virginia. But one privilege that won’t be curtailed any longer is his right to vote - meaning that come November, the only living man to have shot a U.S. president could register to be among the millions...

    An unusual question is capturing the attention of cyberspecialists, Russia experts and Democratic Party leaders in Philadelphia: Is Vladimir V. Putin trying to meddle in the American presidential election? Until Friday, that charge, with its eerie suggestion of a Kremlin conspiracy to aid Donald J. Trump, has been only whispered. But the release on Friday of some 20,000 stolen emails from the Democratic National Committee’s computer servers, many of them embarrassing to Democratic leaders, has intensified discussion of the role of Russian intelligence agencies in disrupting the 2016 campaign.

    Bernie Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver said his team was "disappointed" by the emails from the Democratic National Committee leaked through WikiLeaks, which seemed to reveal staff in the party working to support Hillary Clinton. "Someone does have to be held accountable," Weaver said during an interview with ABC News. "We spent 48 hours of public attention worrying about who in the [Donald] Trump campaign was going to be held responsible for the fact that some lines of Mrs. Obama's speech were taken by Mrs. Trump. Someone in the DNC needs to be held at least as accountable as the...

    Israel Matzav ^ | 3/8/16 | Carl in Jerusalem
    Just about a year ago, the Obama administration, furious with Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, let everyone who would listen know that it deemed the Prime Minister's address to a joint session of Congress two weeks before the Israeli elections to be 'electioneering.' In the summer of 2012, the administration went out of its way to accuse Netanyahu of interfering in the US election by hosting Republican nominee Mitt Romney three and a half months before that election took place. Now, the shoe is on the other foot. With the media paying less and less attention to Obama, he wants a...

    Picking on the mainstream media is easier than offending radical feminists, and almost as much fun, but just because it’s barely a challenge doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it. We should. We must. All decent, patriotic Americans yearn for the day when the effects of emerging technologies combine with the mainstream media’s insufferable progressive cheerleading to finally destroy it. Its death throes are underway, but it won’t buy the farm overnight. The body of the mainstream media is still shambling along, wreaking havoc, long after it its brain has died. So we need to put down the mainstream media like...
