President Biden said there was no evidence of election fraud — or “fowl play” — as he took part in the annual Thanksgiving turkey pardon ceremony at the White House.
“The votes are in. They’ve been counted and verified. There’s no ballot stuffing,” Biden cracked — in an apparent dig at former President Trump’s false claims of fraud in the 2020 presidential election — as he prepared to pardon the turkeys in the gobble-filled tradition on the South Lawn on Monday.
Arizona Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright — with the Elections Integrity Unit — wrote a letter to the Maricopa County officials Saturday demanding an accounting for the widespread ballot tabulation and ballot printer problems seen during the general election on Nov. 8.
Among the most troubling issues raised in the letter directed to Thomas Liddy with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office was the apparent co-mingling of ballots in black duffle bags in at least one polling location, which were successfully run through the on-site tabulators with those put in “Door 3” to be sent to the Election Department’s downtown Phoenix tabulation center because they could not be read.
“The Elections Integrity Unit (“Unit”) of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office (“AGO”) has received hundreds of complaints since Election Day pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County,” Wright opened her letter.
Since Democrats have coined the ‘election denier’ catchphrase, applying it exclusively to Republicans who cast doubts on election integrity in 2020 and 2022, we’d like to refresh their memory on those in their own party who have denied election results over the years.
They’d like you to forget most of these instances, but fortunately, today’s information technology makes it easy to point out what absolute hypocrites these people are.
Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of The View, erstwhile actress, stand up comic and present-day radical leftist threatened to leave Twitter upon the social media giant’s acquisition by pro-free-speech entrepreneur billionaire Elon Musk. And it appears she’s done it.
Unlike her previous statements that she would consider leaving the United States if Donald Trump won the Presidency, (hint: she didn’t leave) Goldberg seems to have made good on this one. According to Breitbart, Goldberg deleted her Twitter account after saying “the place is a mess.”
We have pretty much burned our bridges at this point. Unless you’re prepared to mindfuck yourself, and gaslight yourself, and confess, and convert, there’s no going back to “normal” society (which we couldn’t go back to anyway, on account of how it doesn’t exist anymore) — CJ Hopkins
Thirty-seven billion more dollars for Ukraine? (That’s thirty-seven thousand millions of dollars, by the way.) Bringing the total this year to a click-or-two over ninety billion (ninety-thousand millions), on top of whatever Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX company funneled through that sad-sack international money laundromat — soon to be the darkest backwater of a European failed state since Field Marshal Melchior von Hatzfeldt of Westphalia left Bohemia a corpse-strewn wasteland after the Battle of Jankau (1645).
It really doesn’t matter how much more money we pound down that rat-hole, you understand, because by the time various parties — the weapons-makers, Volodymyr Zelensky, sundry members of the US House of Representatives, the Biden family, the World Economic Forum — are finished creaming off their fair shares, poor Ukraine won’t have enough cash-on-hand to replace six fuse-boxes in Zaporizhzhia.
One of two men accused of plotting to attack New York City synagogues is Jewish and the grandson of a Holocaust survivor, his attorney claimed in court Saturday.
Matthew Mahrer, 22, was ordered held on $150,000 bail at his arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court on charges of criminal possession of a weapon though his lawyer asked that he be released on his own recognizance.
“There are a lot of questions here,” defense attorney Brandon Freycint said of Mahrer, who has allegedly been diagnosed with autism, bipolar disorder, anxiety and ADHD.
“My client is of Jewish heritage. He resides with his parents and his grandfather is actually a 93-year-old Holocaust survivor — and my client is his part-time caretaker,” Freycinet said.
The Arizona Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright has said she will not certify the election between Republican Kari Lake and Democrat Katie Hobbs until she gets answers to the questions she said surround the voting in Maricopa County.
“These complaints go beyond pure speculation, but include first-hand witness accounts that raise concerns regarding Maricopa’s lawful compliance with Arizona election law,” the assistant attorney general said in a letter to a top elections official, The Daily Mail reported.
“Arizonans deserve a full report and accounting of the myriad problems that occurred in relation to Maricopa County’s administration of the 2022 General Election,” she said in the letter to Thomas Liddy, civil division chief at the Maricopa County’s Attorney’s Office.
“As the canvass is looming, and these issues relate to Maricopa County’s ability to lawfully certify election results – the Unit requests a response to the aforementioned issues on or before Maricopa County submits its official canvass to the Secretary of State, which must occur on or before November 28, 2022,” she said.
During a hearing brought by three doctors over the Food and Drug Administration’s interference in their professional discretion to prescribe the drug Ivermectin as treatment for Covid-19, a government lawyer claimed that the FDA’s position was merely a “recommendation.”
“The cited statements were not directives. They were not mandatory. They were recommendations,” the government’s attorney Isaac Belfer argued. “They said what parties should do. They said, for example, why you should not take ivermectin to treat COVID-19. They did not say you may not do it, you must not do it. They did not say it’s prohibited or it’s unlawful. They also did not say that doctors may not prescribe ivermectin.”
“They use informal language, that is true,” attorney Isaac Belfer told a Texas federal court in November, adding that, “it’s conversational but not mandatory.”
The FDA had directed physicians to “stop” prescribing the drug Ivermectin for Covid. On its webpage, “Why You Should Not Use Ivermectin to Treat or Prevent COVID-19,” it stated: “You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it.”
The FDA said in a second post: “Hold your horses, y’all. Ivermectin may be trending, but it still isn’t authorized or approved to treat COVID-19.”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) laid out the roadmap this weekend for Republicans to dominate politically in the coming years following Republicans’ blowout wins earlier this month in the midterm elections.
Disney fired CEO Bob Chapek in a dramatic development Sunday, bringing back its former boss and ending a disastrous tenure that saw the entertainment giant become a value-hemorrhaging caricature of wokeness.
Democrats won far too many races in this year’s midterms — far more than they were supposed to win, or historically would have won, thanks to mass mail-in voting — because too many Americans literally voted against their own interests for some reason.
While Democrats pulled off (meaning stole) a better than expected night on Nov. 8th, the party will face tremendous headwinds in maintaining their razor-thin Senate majority come 2024. Democrats will be defending 23 of the 34 Senate seats up for grabs next cycle. Of their 23 seats up for election, seven are in states won by former President Donald Trump in either 2016 or 2020.
Opportunities for Democrats to flip Republican-held seats are less encouraging. Sen. Rick Scott of Florida is considered one of Democrats' best pickup opportunities in 2024, along with Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's Texas seat. Both senators won by narrow margins in 2018.
While Florida has been swing state territory in the past, Republicans won big in the Sunshine State on Election Day. Gov. Ron DeSantis’ decisive victory, flipping historically blue counties like Miami-Dade and Palm Beach, suggests Florida is increasingly Republican ground – not to mention Sen. Marco Rubio's 16-point win over Democrat Val Demings.
