  • Sorry, Twitter, but Trump Is Right About Mail-In Ballots

    Inside Sources ^ | 05/28/2020 | Michael Graham
    President Donald Trump has had a problematic week on Twitter, engaging in political combat with foils like MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough has inspired a backlash beyond any he’s faced before as president. Part of the reaction was Twitter’s decision to stick a “fact check” label on two of Trump’s tweets about mail-in ballots. This decision, in turn sparked its own backlash around issues of freedom of expression and political bias. (Will President Stacey Abrams ever get a tweet fact-checked by Twitter? Probably not.) Overlooked in the social media scrum over Trump’s tweets, however, is the one issue most relevant to voters...

    We’re all going crazy and running out of things to do during this endless shutdown. We’ve painted the dog, counted pavers in the backyard, and rearranged the spice rack alphabetically and also by color. What we really need right now is a new game! Herewith I present the Quarantine Game that I, Ann Coulter, have invented. The rules are simple. Imagine you’re the Democratic Party. You have a stellar opportunity to win the White House and also ensure that the opposition party never regains it as long as Homo sapiens walks the Earth. But in a series of developments too...
  • Report: Kamala Harris Now The Frontrunner For Biden’s VP

    Liberals on Twitter are heckling Charles Gasparino for this report. “What would a Fox Business reporter know about what the Democratic nominee is thinking?”Well, replied Gasparino, you do realize there are some well-connected establishment Democrats on Wall Street, don’t you? I mean, the Bernie brigades will talk your ear off about just how many there are. The irony of people scoffing at this is that, if anything, it seems a little too obvious to qualify as newsy. Of course Harris is the frontrunner. How could it be otherwise? Scoop— Sources: Full vetting underway for 10 @JoeBiden VP candidates; @KamalaHarris...
  • Voting By Mail In 2020 Would Create Chaos To Advantage Democrats

    The Federalist ^ | May 26, 2020 | Sarah Lee
    Vote-by-mail would federalize a state-based electoral system, introducing something Democrats tend to use when they're desperate for a win: chaos. Leftists know that changing the rules of the game can bring victory, and have long tried to change election rules to do just that. When COVID-19 came, facing a contentious race with a populist incumbent president, Democrats turned to their vast network of money-men, many under the umbrella of the “dark money” empire known as the Arabella Network, and set about using the new crisis to their advantage. Their latest push is an expansion of vote-by-mail and its cousin, ballot...
  • Could The GOP Really Lose The Senate?

    Hotair ^ | 05/26/2020 | Jazz Shaw
    While everyone is focusing on the Presidential race and the electoral college this year, some GOP strategists are getting a bit nervous about the Senate. Of the upper chamber seats up for grabs, the GOP is defending more of them that look potentially vulnerable if Democrats get some momentum going. This is probably even more important than the question of who wins the White House. If Donald Trump manages to lose his bid for a second term, a GOP Senate majority is the only thing that would act as a check on the new Democratic president’s agenda, whether that...
  • Audit finds 2018 election in Broward County was marred by waste, extra votes, unnecessary delays

    South Florida Sun Sentinel ^ | 05/26/20 | Anthony Man
    Multiple shortcomings contributed to a problem-plagued 2018 election in Broward County, many of which were on public display while a national cable TV audience waited for Florida to recount votes in elections for governor and U.S. Senate. A controversial audit 18 months later is now detailing even more failings. Among the issues raised in the audit: Half of Broward County’s election precincts reported more ballots cast than the number of voters. Backlogs in processing mail ballots snarled reporting of results. Confusing ballot design may have led thousands of voters to inadvertently skip an important contest. Money was wasted on unneeded...

    I have been uncovering and exposing election fraud in Nevada for several years now. The problem is that no one in a position of authority Left or Right ever seems to ever care about it…and that’s likely because they’re all benefitting from it. Unchecked election fraud was one of the main reasons I decided to run for Congress, it’s why enacting voter ID, cleaning up our polls, and securing our elections is the number one core issue on my platform. I believe we will immediately start seeing change for the better in this country, once it’s the people making decisions…...
  • Can Republicans Win the House in November 2020?

    PJ Media ^ | 05/24/2020 | Rick Moran
    House Republican leaders are expressing optimism about their chances to flip the House from Democrats to the GOP in November. Despite the challenges facing the party — challenges that almost all political pros from both parties agree are daunting — there may, indeed, be room for looking on the sunny side of the contest. Most political experts dismiss Republican chances of winning back the House. They point to the 41 seats that flipped in the 2018 midterms, a record number of Republican retirements, and a big cash advantage for Democratic incumbents.But a large number of those seats that flipped during...

    Don't tell the mainstream media, but another case of "nonexistent" voter fraud managed to squeak a few times this week before "objective" journalists quickly jumped on top of the story and smothered it.... an election judge admitted to "literally standing in a voting booth and voting over and over, as fast as he could, while he thought the coast was clear." In a test run of their planned robbery, missing South Carolina mail-in ballots printed in Minnesota somehow ended up in Baltimore this week.... Republican legislatures should change the rules of the game entirely by giving each one of their...

    Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler said she had no plans to drop out of the contest to keep her Senate seat despite a stock-trading controversy. "Not only am I not dropping out, but I'm gonna win,” the Republican told Politico. “And no one's going to intimidate me into thinking that that's the right course for our party, for our state, for our country. I'm working hard to help reelect the president. I'm working hard to win my seat and keep the Senate in Republican hands.” Loeffler has had a rocky few months since being appointed to replace Sen. Johnny Isakson, who...

    The Atlantic appeared to have the right ingredients for a successful 21st-century publication: strong journalism, a thriving digital operation and the enthusiastic backing of a multibillionaire, Laurene Powell Jobs. But on Thursday the 163-year-old publication announced that it would lay off 68 employees, or 17% of its staff, evidence that even the most robust media businesses are vulnerable to the crisis that has ravaged news organizations nationwide. The announcement followed a burst of layoffs in the news media business last week: 155 jobs lost at Vice, 100 at Condé Nast, 90 at The Economist, 80 at Quartz. The cuts at...

    Wilson might as well have been hatched in a Federalist Society lab; his lengthy political record reveals a deep commitment to Republicans’ political goals. Alliance for Justice, a progressive group that has opposed most of Trump’s judicial nominees, compiled a record of Wilson’s many controversial positions. Examples of his partisanship are not difficult to find. Wilson called Barack Obama “King Barack,” “petty and small,” “a fit-throwing teenager,” the “Anointed One,” a “radical leftist,” and “shrill, dishonest, and intellectually bankrupt.” He charged Obama with running the “most paranoid and politicized White House since Nixon.” He has also called Hillary Clinton “Crooked...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that the Senate Intelligence Committee will vote to advance the nomination of Rep. John Ratcliffe to serve as director of national intelligence. Ratcliffe, a Texas Republican, is expected to win approval from the Senate Intelligence Committee after promising the panel to act independently of President Trump and “deliver the unvarnished truth.” If confirmed by the Senate, which appears all but certain, Ratcliffe will take over for acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell.

    Xochitl Hinojosa, communications director for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), sparked confusion this week after stating during an appearance on Fox News that it is crucial for the party to hold its convention, because they are “not officially nominating Joe Biden in order to take Donald Trump.” “There’s a real possibility the convention does not happen or it happens in a virtual sense. Is that correct as of today?” Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer asked. “First of all, our convention has to happen, because we are not officially nominating Joe Biden in order to take Donald Trump,” Hinojosa replied. “So...

    Just in case you were wondering, if Joe Biden is elected president in November he will not pardon President Trump. He promises he will not do that. What he doesn’t say is for what charge(s) Trump would request a pardon.It’s a comment Joe Biden made during Lawrence O’Donnell’s MSNBC show, The Last Word Thursday when a voter asked him if he would pardon Trump “under the pretense of healing the nation.” He doesn’t want Biden to “pull a Gerald Ford”, you see. So Biden, who is running under the pretense that he wants to unify the country, said no,...

    Defeated conservatives like to believe they are beautiful losers. The remnants of the Never Trump movement are convinced they were right in standing (as they see it) for principles, character, and competence against a Republican nominee lacking all three. They may be politically exiled and impotent, but they are preserving an unsullied conservatism.A new book from Oxford University Press, Never Trump: The Revolt of the Conservative Elites, provides an extensive account of the leaders of this movement. The authors, Robert Saldin and Steven Teles, are sympathetic to their subjects, whom they quote at length, and this book does not...
