Time To Clean House

 The Democrats knew they had no chance of impeaching Trump. That wasn’t  their goal.  They were trying to destroy not only Trump but the entire Republican Party, and chastise everyone who voted for Trump. They wanted to condemn in front of the nation all attempts to discredit the election and hence their puppet-president - Joe Biden. 

The entire kangaroo impeachment  trial was an absurd blending of unreasonable argument with no evidence.  As so-called evidence, the House managers showed outrageously misleading cuts of film and inflammatory footage showing the perpetrators of the intrusion of the Capitol, whom we all agree were wrong and should be dealt with under the law.  This did nothing to prove that Trump was the instigator. The only other support of their argument they had were reports from mostly left-winged news outlets. 


In his closing argument Trump’s lawyer expressed the outrage we must all feel at the bloated hypocritical theatre presented by the Democrats. He didn’t just speak for Trump. He spoke for us. It wasn’t just Trump on trial. It was us. All of us who supported and voted for a man who did some great things for our  country and stood by his promises to us.  


There were some who were not outraged. They likely didn’t vote for Trump. They are phony, arrogant politicians who shouldn’t be a part of the Republican Party. We know who they are, I don’t need to repeat the six names. Two will be gone on their own. The others need to go and we need to support any effort to be rid of them from representing the Party.

China Joe

 Now that Joe is no longer running some of his shenanigans or how he got rich schemes are coming out. Here is just one that has implications for decision making in the new administration. According to Politico:

At the University of Pennsylvania, there is a thing called the “Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement.” The man who has been running the Penn Biden Center since it was founded in 2018 is a guy named Tony Blinken, Biden’s nominee to be the new US Secretary of State.


The Penn Biden Center under Blinken’s leadership took in more than $20 million in anonymous donations from Chinese nationals. And the Penn Biden Center according to an article in Politico is now refusing to disclose the identities of those Chinese.


The  Penn Biden Center is almost entirely bought and paid for by anonymous Chinese donors. There are a few other people who worked there who are also moving over to the White House.  


The list includes White House counselor Steve Ricchetti, Brian McKeon who headed to the State Department, the new Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl, the new deputy UN ambassador Jeff Prescott, and three other people that Biden has appointed to the National Security Council.


All of these people are required, obviously, to fill out financial disclosures during the nominating process. But they’re all just going to write that they were paid salaries by this Penn Biden Center. And the Penn Biden Center is refusing to disclose its list of anonymous donors from Communist China.

Biden Strikes with First Leftist Acts

Eager to train wreck the successes of the Trump presidency,    Biden has been quick to initiate actions to dismantle Trump programs that increased economic prosperity in the country, grew jobs and provided the country with a more secure environment. Here’s just a shortlist of what he has been up to. More than ever Republicans have to work together through our Republican led states and other legal channels to fight this agenda

Here are just a few of the leftist pleasing actions Biden has taken in the nascent days of his Presidency. 


  • He rejoined the World Health Organization which covered up China’s role in spreading the coronavirus, rewarding them with upwards of $450 million a year for the privilege of being the WHO’s largest donor. 


  • Despite high unemployment and the pandemic, he put a moratorium on deportations of illegal aliens which has encouraged caravans from central America 


  • He revoked  the permit for the Keystone Pipeline which will kill thousands of good-paying jobs 


  • He signed an order letting boys compete in girls’ sports events if they identify as transgender putting biological girls in jeopardy of  losing their role in sports and scholarships.  


  • He halted new oil, gas and coal leases on public lands and water and rejoined the Paris Climate Accord is certain to be a job killer and will ultimately increase fuel prices

First Goal - Save Our First Amendment Rights

When I hear Katie Couric say on the lefty Bill Mayer show that Republican congressmen and women who were Trump supporters would need to be “deprogrammed” and listen to distainful remarks from Willy Geist regarding what constitutes almost half of America, I know something is terribly wrong.  These are not hard line political commentators. These are soft side not particularly erudite TV hosts that would in normal times be overseeing cooking segments with celebrity chefs or chatting up an actor on his new film. Yet there they are chirping out dangerous comments on the American people. 


They are part of a bubble that encapsulates the majority of our media. Most of the people they talk to and work with every day hold views similar to them — Trump bad, people who support or supported him, bad also. They believe they, the bubble brigade, represent the country. People who hold contrary opinions seem weird and even sinister to them or at best malprogrammed needing reprogramming or worst yet total silencing. 


But there is a more dangerous component to this. The  big tech leadership that controls modern communication and provides the screens  that our children spend a great deal of time using are intrinsically linked to this bubble. Hence, they provide the people who want to shut down opposing viewpoints the tools for doing just that. We only have to look at how the New York Post was stopped from echoing negative but accurate information on Joe Biden during the election and worst still how President Trump and other conservatives have been banned from the major social media platforms.  These corporations have grown so powerful that they can effectively squash free speech. It’s a new problem that requires new solutions, before unelected corporate elites who are part of the bubble control the flow of information for the entire country.


And the solution doesn’t lie just in finding and using other marginal platforms -  you already see what happens there, Parler is just an example. We have to stand together on issues that are important - free speech the main one of them. Start locally. Blast the local paper with letters now. Contact your local and state representatives on this issue now. Stay on the main stream social platforms and blast away going to the pages of elected officials and  influencers and insist that companies not be enabled to restrict our first amendment rights. It is nonsense to say that these social giants are private companies that can do what they want - they are monopolistic utilities that control access to huge populations.  These platforms are the printing presses of today and we can’t be silenced on them if we are to remain a free people. We also need to resort to email, snail mail and other traditional ways to get our message out.  - tmurtha

The Election Fix

Election Data Team to Call 1.25 Million Voters Over Anomalies in 6 Contested States
BY CHARLOTTE CUTHBERTSON November 13, 2020 Updated: November 14, 2020
WASHINGTON—The former data and strategy director for President Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign has canceled his vacation plans to comb through election data for voter fraud.
Matt Braynard and his wife had planned to be in the Dominican Republic, but “right now, this is where I’m needed,” he said on YouTube on Nov. 8.
Braynard has assembled a team to look for inconsistencies in the six contested states—Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Nevada.
So far, they’ve identified 1.25 million voter issues that they’re following up on through phone calls and against other databases.
The largest issue they’ve found so far is with voters who had submitted a National Change of Address form to the post office indicating they moved out of state, yet appear to have voted in 2020 in the state they moved from.
“We’re calling them to confirm whether or not they actually cast the ballot, or if that ballot was cast by somebody else in their name,” Braynard told The Epoch Times.
In Georgia, the team found 17,877 early or absentee voters who had filed out-of-state move notices—a higher number than the current vote differential in the state. The current vote tally in Georgia as of 1 p.m. on Nov. 13 shows Democratic nominee Joe Biden ahead of Trump by 14,164 votes.
Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has called for a recount and audit of the presidential race in his state, which began on Nov. 13 and is expected to conclude at midnight on Nov. 18. Georgia is obliged to certify its election results by Nov. 20.
Braynard’s team has also found conflicting out-of-state move notices and votes cast with 7,426 Pennsylvania voters, 6,254 Wisconsin voters, 5,145 Nevada voters, 5,084 Arizona voters, and 1,688 Michigan voters.
So far, they’ve confirmed 631 double-voters in Pennsylvania and 987 in Nevada—and that’s before they’ve checked the Election Day in-person voting information.
“I’m surprised by how many out-of-state national changes of address we found. Because that does indicate very strongly that somebody established residency somewhere else,” Braynard said. “And then they got mailed an absentee ballot, were able to get one, and they cast it. And in many cases, as we found, they not only cast that ballot, they cast a ballot in the new state they live in as well.”
Aside from the change of address issues, Braynard’s team is calling people who received absentee ballots but didn’t return them. They’re asking the person if they requested the ballot, and if so, did they return it, only for it not to be counted.
The third chunk of phone calls relates to precincts that had an extremely high turnout. They’re calling voters who had never voted before, but voted early or absentee in this election, to confirm whether they indeed cast that ballot.
So far, Braynard and his team have found “a few hundred” people who have been willing to sign declarations, which will then become affidavits if lawyers want to include that case. Braynard said he has passed all relevant information to the Trump campaign.
Stay tuned.

"Pennsylvania Election Violated Federal Constitution" - Trump's Brilliant Complaint

by James V DeLong 

The complaint filed in Pennsylvania by the Trump campaign is a superb piece of legal craftsmanship. It was filed in federal court, not state.  The gist is that some of the state's actions, and particularly the exclusion of Republican poll-watchers during the counting of hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots, violated federal constitutional requirements.

 The point is obvious enough once one thinks of it, but it's brilliant all the same.  It shifts the focus from state law, where a politicized Pennsylvania court has the last word, to federal law, where the U.S. Supreme Court rules.

As for the obviousness of the point, consider as a thought experiment a state law requiring that all votes be counted in secret by an unelected board named by the party in power.  Could it survive a constitutional challenge?

 As my old Harvard constitutional law professors would have said, "to ask the question is to answer it."  It is hard to count all the constitutional guarantees violated here: Equal Protection, Due Process, Privileges and Immunities.  Indeed, the complaint stacks up the Supreme Court precedents supporting its arguments, including the long line of ringing statements in the chain of one-person-one-vote decisions.

 Even the late Justice Ginsburg, who never met a progressive argument she could not support, would have trouble upholding such a law.

 Given this framework, the historic decision in Bush v. Gore becomes useful but unimportant.  The problem there was that the Florida Supreme Court pretended to be interpreting state law, and the legal convention is that the U.S. Supreme Court must defer on state issues, even though the Florida court was making up new law as it went along and changing its mind shamelessly.

 The U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Bush v. Gore was muddled by the need to wiggle around this problem without addressing it head-on, because it would not do to cast doubt on the integrity of fellow judges.  (The union is strong.)  Only a three-justice concurrence said flatly that the Florida Court was contradicting the Legislature, and that would not do.  Four justices went off on an opaque Equal Protection argument.

 A result of this muddle, say friends in academia, is that progressive legal scholars are contemptuous of the decision and dismiss it as irrelevant.

 Trump's Pennsylvania case does not have the complication of the state versus federal law interaction because it jumps over the state law and, as noted, relies on a host of U.S. SCOTUS cases about the importance of voting.

 The complaint has much more, designed to bolster its central point. Many other instances of fraudulent activity are cited, which lends credibility to the main accusation.  They are also indispensable to establish a factual case — that the exclusion not only occurred, but mattered, because thousands of ballots were counted in secret.

 Reading the news reports, it appears likely that similar complaints are going to be filed in other swing states and that perhaps we are seeing the exposure of a broad-based effort to corrupt the election.  Joe Biden claimed that the Democrats were mounting the biggest voter fraud effort in history, and a good rule for living is that when someone tells you he is about to screw you over, believe him.

 It is possible, then, that a number of cases will hit the Supreme Court in about three weeks.

 Everyone in the legal world assumes that the justices, bruised by the excoriation the Court has received over Bush v. Gore (even though the result was right), would never put itself in the position of reversing the apparent results of a presidential election.  This assumption is the reason for the Democrats' efforts to create an irresistible bandwagon effect, but the president's lawyers may have out-maneuvered them.  The justices may have no choice except to decide the election, one way or the other, and to be put to the choice of reversing the media-claimed results or ratifying massive fraud.

 The legitimacy of the Court could survive through, and even be enhanced by, a carefully explained reversal of initial results.  It could not survive a mealy-mouthed ratification of obvious fraud.  If Trump's lawyers make their case factually, the Court must agree.

 As Lincoln said: "we cannot escape history.  We ... will be remembered in spite of ourselves ... in honor or dishonor, to the latest generation."

When Democracy Died In America -Journalism Soviet Style

 THE BACKHOE CHRONICLES

When Democracy died in America-------- 


Joe Biden took questions from reporters today for the first time since Tucker Carlson’s interview with Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden who accused the Biden family of using their political influence to rake in millions from foreign governments.


But the media members on hand didn’t bother to ask about it. 


Biden briefly faced reporters after voting in Wilmington, Del. less than 24 hours after Bobulinski, a retired lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, raised concerns that in 2017 the former vice president's brother, Jim Biden, and Joe Biden had ties to a possible joint venture with a Chinese energy firm owned by the Chinese government. 


Reporters ignored the bombshell allegations, instead, asking the Democrat presidential nominee about ongoing looting and unrest in Philadelphia and the Affordable Care Act, before he hurried off into a waiting black SUV.


“What we saw there was another failure by the news media to ask Joe Biden about Hunter Biden and whether or not he will admit that he lied to the American people about his son’s foreign business dealings,” Trump 2020 campaign spokesperson Erin Perrine said on "Outnumbered Overtime."


“This is a story the media refuses to cover, even when they have the candidate there, taking questions, which he so rarely does.


Chronicle fans, this is Soviet-style journalism. Don't report on anything that might be negative about the party you support, yet run with ANY unsubstantiated allegations that might be negative about the opposition party.


OMG. 


Democracy died today.


Please, please, please....vote Trump.
