  1. Lindsey Graham just on Hannity; they are going to fight for Rick Scott, no doubt about it. That’s great, he seems to think GOP will win. That’s great, but my impression is they are fighting for Scott because he is one of them. Established elected official, but not able to transfer what is going on to other races/situations. I agree with poster above that said do you really believe all of these races are this close…no I do not…fix all across the country.

      THIS IS BS. Why should we have to FIGHT TWICE? We won. They cheated on a massive scale. Make no mistake about this – they cheated in NV and Heller lost, they cheated in MT and Rosendale lost, they cheated in WI and Walker lost, they are in the process of cheating in AZ against McSally. They attempted to cheat in GA. This is no over-exaggeration or hysteria. It is the truth. The GOP and DOJ must investigate now and prosecute those who have committed this crime that verges on treason – stealing of democracy. The Americans must not be disenfranchised.

      But let’s imitate the Democrats in one thing, which is, to pull their own people across the line, every one of them, every chance, every way they can. Today we win this battle and tomorrow fight another. Today we fight for Rick Scott, this is no time to find fault. The Democrats wouldn’t, would they. One fight at a time.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California encouraged then-President Barack Obama to use broad presidential powers to tighten immigration rules in response to a wave of migration from Central America in 2014.
    In a letter to Obama, Feinstein cited the same statutory authority that President Donald Trump invoked to make illegal border-crossers ineligible for asylum.
    That authority comes from Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which allows the president to “impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

      Of coarse. Dems ALWAYS delate, postpone, obsfucate, dither dicker deny, refuse to comply,..and then say Move On, NOTHING to SEE here,…and in the end, WHAT does it MATTER, really?

      B A R S T U D S!
      Perhaps, just perhaps, some Republicans will grow,a pair, as their blinders come of, and they see who the opposition really is.

      They thought it was ‘all about Trump’, and they were content to let him take all the arrows, while THEY could ‘work’ with these people, behind closed doors.

      The Kavanaugh, the assault on Scalise and team, the attacks in restaurants, etc.
      Just as citisens are Red Pilling, perhaps some R’s in Congress are starting to realise; the bell tolls for YOU.

      Regardless of the outcome in Florida and Az., DJT is right that those who embraced him early and unabashedly, and that he campaigned for did well, those that didn’t, or were slow and squishy, like McSally, and Gov. in Florida, IIRC, not so well.

      So, give us MAGA candidates, GOP, or stay home. Tired of your stinkin RINO’s, and if they TRY to appear MAGA, when they’re not, we’ll ‘stay home’. Thats apperently our message to GOP.

      Many independents are not rational voters. Its hard to grasp when you follow politics to attain discrete policy objectives, but many voters split their tickets for reasons that only make sense to them.

      One example, when Hillary was elected to the NY Senate, I remember talking with a bunch of people who voted for her just because they felt bad for her having to go through the episode with Bill. It wasn’t about policy, or anything else.


      • kathyca says:

        No offense intended to you whatsoever, but I don’t think there is ANY reasonable explanation — including stupid and/or random voters — of a magnitude needed to go from GOP gov at plus 15-16 to a dead heat with a socialist.

    Broward County and Palm Beach County are STILL “counting” Provisional Ballots and Mail-ins.
    They are going through the UNSIGNED ballots and my personal favorite, making the determine of “voter intent.”
    So, I assume that if you mailed in a blank ballot, Brenda can decide that you really intended to vote for Nelson and Gillum……OK…looks like we got another one!
    IMO…The obvious appearance of incompetence is the cover of choice when committing fraud.

      FYI…At this point in time, unsigned ballots are legally TRASH.
      By law, voters are granted the opportunity to “perfect” their ballot until 5PM the day before the election. In this case, that would have been Monday, November 5th.
      As of 5:01PM, all unsigned ballots will NOT be counted.

    Trying to see silver linings;
    While its too soon to tell, it LOOKS like the refugee proclamation, along with the military on the border, MAY be causing the migrant invaders in the caraban to have second thoughts,..
    DJT saying rock throwers would be shot, even though he later walked it back, may have helped.
    And perhaps not getting busses has contributed, since federal mexican officials advised Mayor of Mexico City he could be charged with “Human Trafficing”, if he supplied them with busses.

    Which means, anyone else who, in an ORGANISED FASHION, supplied them with transportation could be charged, as well. Hello, $oro$ stooges, this means YOU.

    However, whether the caravans come or not, we have the U.S. military on the border. Something many of us have been screaming for, for years.
    As yet, haven’t seen any indication of length of deployment. And, if proclamation withstands legal challenge, and how could it not, Pelosi suggested Obama use same law, it ENDS
    “Catch and Release”, permanently.

    Due to the ending of the consent decree, Repubs CAN be more aggressive, at pursuieng voter fraud.
    Lets see what they are able to do.

    But Hillary STILL isn’t POTUS, and VSGDJT IS!. And we have 7,000 troops on the Southern border, and more available if needed. IF the invader carabans do stop, its a great victory, as they won’t try it, again.

    Excerpts below, underneath the dotted line. Pay Close Attention To the Last 4 Paragraphs of the article. They explain that Tim Canova (a Dem) challenged in court his loss to Wasserman-Schultz. Court ordered Brenda Snipes to not destroy the ballots. SNIPES DESTROYED THEM ANYWAY, and Canova was never able to examine them, and his loss to Wasserman stood.

    Snipes GOT AWAY WITH IGNORING THAT COURT ORDER. So far, she’s gotten away with ignoring THIS COURT ORDER. The FL govt – from Governor Scott to FDLE, to the riot police, to the local beat cop – WILL NOT STOP SNIPES…………..but instead is PROTECTING HER AND HELPING HER STEAL THE ELECTION.

    Where are the armed citizens demanding entrance to the building? 100 armed citizens will make any PD retreat. 500 armed citizens will make the local PD and state pd retreat. 1,000 armed citizens will require the NG be deployed.


    On to the excerpts:
    Election Fraud Expert: Brenda Snipes Allowed Illegal Aliens and Felons to Vote; Illegally Destroyed Ballots

    Three statewide races in Florida are headed to a recount and all depend on results from a county whose supervisor of elections has a history of losing ballots and breaking laws by allowing illegal immigrants and felons to vote, as well as illegally destroying ballots.

    Broward County supervisor of elections Brenda Snipes’ office has admitted “they don’t know” how many ballots there are still to count.

    Snipes’ latest failure to finalize Tuesday’s election returns days after the polls closed is also in violation of Florida law, which requires elections officials to “report all early voting and all tabulated vote-by-mail results to the Department of State within 30 minutes after the polls close. Thereafter, the canvassing board shall report, with the exception of provisional ballot results, updated precinct election results to the department at least every 45 minutes until all results are completely reported.”

    This should alarm anyone hoping for fair and accurate election returns, as Snipes’ history in Broward is checkered with numerous examples of facilitating illegal voting practices.

    In 2017, Dr. Snipes admitted in court that her office had allowed non-citizens and felons to vote and was particularly vulnerable ahead of major elections.

    In 2012, a Broward elections official complained about Snipes tendency to “find” additional ballots in close elections. Ilene Lieberman, a Broward County Commissioner and Canvassing board member, told the Miami CBS affiliate in 2012, “When the canvassing board recessed on Saturday we were basically told there were between 150 and 165 ballots remained to be counted, that they had to double check, that they hadn’t been counted before. And when we came back on Monday the report showed 963 new ballots.”

    Snipes also presided over a “phantom voting district” of 2000 voters who were using illegal addresses, many of them at a UPS Store, claimed as their places of residence.

    Republican Party officials sued Snipes’ office in 2016 over the illegal counting of 180,000 mail in ballots, she admitted that she didn’t know the meaning of the word “canvassing.” Snipes’ office had been opening ballots illegally, without the legally required participation of other members of the canvasing board.

    But Snipes hasn’t just been accused of malfeasance from Republicans.

    A 2016 Democratic Congressional candidate, Tim Canova, challenged the results of his loss to Debbie Wasserman-Schultz in court, only to have Snipes’ office illegally destroy the ballots, preventing additional inspection.

    Medical Marijuana backers NORML sued Snipes office in 2016 after the constitutional initiative to decriminalize marijuana was left off of some Broward County ballots. Lawyer John Morgan, who endorsed Andrew Gillum in this year’s Governor’s race, accused Snipes of doing it intentionally.

    Morgain marveled, “Broward County was our best county last time. And I don’t believe in accidents.”
