Abrams Declares War on Arithmetic
American Spectator, by David Catron

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 11/9/2018 4:47:38 AM

Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate in Georgia’s gubernatorial election, has an adversarial relationship with arithmetic. This antipathy to math has long bedeviled her with regard to unpaid taxes as well as delinquent student loans, and it is now preventing her from seeing that it is mathematically impossible for her to become the Peach State’s next governor. In a Georgia gubernatorial contest, a candidate must receive at least 50 percent of the vote—plus 1—in the general election to win outright. If no one manages to reach that crucial percentage, the two candidates with the most votes must battle it out again in a runoff.

Never discount the possibility of massive fraud. Like we´re seeing with Desantis/Gillum, and McSally/Sinema. The Dims only goal is to WIN, it doesn´t matter how.

She cant win outright. The best outcome she can hope for is a run off election.

And that would be ugly. You will have to aggrieved voting groups. The normals who know sour grapes when they see them and the idiots riled up on claims of racism.

Georgia voters used to be sensible. The election should not have been at all close, with the morbidly obese, deep in debt candidate a joke.
And those provisional ballots, a process created by the Help America Vote law, are ridiculous.

Declaare away. Math is just there, makes no difference what you might think, say or do, math is unaffected.

You can pretend whatever you want, math is correct, has only one answer.

Democrats refuse to compromise on
border wall funding to end the shutdown
USA Today, by Mike Pence    Original Article

America has a national security and humanitarian crisis at our southern border, and President Donald Trump has promised to end it. We’ve already taken important steps, but rather than work with us to make further progress, Democrats in Congress have refused to compromise on the wall, leading to the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. The American people deserve better. Only the willfully blind — or politically blinded — could fail to see the scope and scale of this crisis. The facts speak for themselves. Over the past three months, an average of 2,000 illegal

On December 30, seven-year-old Jazmine Barnes was killed in a brazen drive-by shooting in Houston while in her family car, driven by her mother. Barnes’s teenage sister provided the sole description of the shooter to media and police: ‘He was white and had blue eyes.’ In interviews, the family expressed fears that they had been targeted because of their race. The response was immediate: national media, celebrities, politicians, and activists launched a crusade to find the racist white killer. Within days, activist Shaun King and his attorney Lee Merritt used social media to raise

The majority of American Millennials identify as socialist, according to surveys by both Reason-Rupe and the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation. That’s the bad news. The good news is that just 32 percent of Millennials can define socialism. The frequently-wrong but never-in-doubt freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., may indeed be the voice of her ignorant generation.During an interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” Anderson Cooper asked Ocasio-Cortez, “When people hear the word socialism, they think Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela. Is that what you have in mind?” He neglected to mention the vicious socialist regimes of Cambodia, Ethiopia,

Who Nullified Obamacare

One day after Nancy Pelosi and her modest but all too real Democratic majority in the House of Representatives voted to interfere in Texas v. United States, the lawsuit in which Federal Judge Reed O’Connor ruled Obamacare unconstitutional, a new survey found that nearly six in ten registered voters want O’Connor’s ruling to stand. Of that number, 27% say the law should be eliminated so we can return to the way things were before Obamacare was shoved down our unwilling throats, and 31% agree that it should be invalidated so it can be replaced by a program that works.

It’s starting to seem as though Jim Acosta is biased. His latest video report must truly be seen to be believed.(Snip)Of course, Acosta thought he was undermining Trump’s “national emergency” narrative by depicting a relatively peaceful scene along a section of steel slats in McAllen, Texas on Thursday. Were he not so blinded by his own bias and thirst for retweets, Acosta may have realized the “tranquil[ity]” he encountered actually kind of makes Trump’s point about the wall. But that’s asking a little too much.

Results not resistance. That’s what I think the American public was expecting when they brought Democrats back into power in the House.But instead, echoing Hillary Clinton’s ill-fated 2016 strategy, the Democratic leaders so far have fully planted a flag in simply opposing legislation, funding and appointments under the theory that putting lead boots on President Trump is the best way to get him out of office, even if the country is put on pause for another two years. This is a fundamental mistake, and just as going overboard with Spartacus moments opposing the nomination

A Stalemate as Trump Goes

The televised presidential address from the Oval Office, a staple of communication between the chief executive and the people in the second half of 20th century, has recently been in desuetude. Former President Barack Obama delivered only three such addresses in his eight years in office. President Donald Trump this week delivered his first one, just days short of completing half his term. It was a sober address, short but touching some emotive chords, carefully based on facts and proposals -- contrary to the Democrats´ meme that it would be based on fears, not facts.

Now that the nation has heard the President explain how he wants to address our immigration crisis, and we have all enjoyed the comic relief offered by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in lieu of a serious response, the media have launched a propaganda campaign they hope will pull the Democrats from the ditch they have driven into regarding “the wall.” But our friends in the Fourth Estate are approaching the project in a manner that merely highlights how divorced they are from the world beyond the Beltway. Their primary focus involves the heartrending human tragedy of … idle bureaucrats.

It wasn’t Demosthenean or Ciceronian, and we could have done without the sonic evidence that the president was inhaling normally, but it was a preemptive knockout blow of the robotic tandem that followed. The president was clear, factually unchallengeable, and credible, and Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer looked and sounded like a waxworks animated illustration of the embalmer’s art and her ventriloquist, the bearer of the broadest forehead since Pericles. The president spoke of a national-security, economic, and humanitarian crisis, and they spoke of the federal employees who are about to miss a paycheck.

Yes. Sausage-making. Here’s a fact check: Screaming and shouting and encouraging the media into the usual, bleating hysterics isn’t sausage-making.

In the first year or so of Trump’s presidency, Joe Biden hit the talk-show circuit, musing on his own wonderfulness. “I have regret that I am not president,” he said to one host. “Because I think there’s so much opportunity. I think America is incredibly well-positioned.” These days he is mulling a presidential run, telling fellow Democrats that he is the only electable candidate against Trump in 2020. But liberals are already throwing a wet blanket over his assumed candidacy. According to the New York Times, “He is viewed favorably by the vast majority of Democrats,

Has President Trump suckered Democrats and the Deep State into a trap that will enable a radical downsizing of the federal bureaucracy? In only 5 more days of the already-“longest government shutdown in history” (25 days and counting, as of today), a heretofore obscure threshold will be reached, enabling permanent layoffs of bureaucrats furloughed 30 days or more. Don’t believe me that federal bureaucrats can be laid off? Well, in bureaucratese, a layoff is called a RIF – a Reduction in Force (snip) if the guidelines are followed, bureaucrats can be laid off -- as in no more job

In recent days, many online essays have rightly ripped apart Gillette´s ugly new "We Believe" advertisement. One online critic dubbed it "feel-bad liberalism."

"The guy at the ad agency" is actually philosophically unpleasant feminist Kim Gehrig.

Gillette´s new ad, browbeating men through a #MeToo and "toxic masculinity" pitch, supposedly to persuade men to buy their razors, is so revolting it´s possible to think it´s satire. There is also a 30-second version, which doesn´t even seem to be about selling razors: Seriously, did a spy from Schick get into the Procter & Gamble´s advertising agency and concoct an ad very sure to turn potential customers off? Who would want to buy that after such a string of insults? Isn´t ad rule number one to not insult the customer? Well, this one does.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday asked President Donald Trump to reschedule his State of the Union address — or deliver it in writing — as long as the government remains shut down. "Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th," Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

A family dubbed Britain’s "first transgender family" has announced that they are encouraging the gender transition of their five-year-old son, Jayden. According to the family, Jayden, a biological male, likes dresses and hates "everything about being a boy." The little boy´s "step-dad," Greg Rogers, is a 27-year-old biological female who now identifies as a male. The child’s mother is a 21-year-old woman named Jody. Both Jodi and Greg are furious that concerned citizens (referred to as “trolls” by many U.K.-based outlets) have reported them to social services for apparent child abuse.

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined

Attorney General nominee William Barr said he told President Trump that Robert Mueller is a “straight shooter” when the president once quizzed him about the special counsel’s integrity. Barr, testifying at a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Tuesday, said he talked to Trump about joining the president’s defense team last summer. “He said, ‘Oh you know Bob Mueller, how well do you know Bob Mueller?´” Barr told the panel. He replied that the Barrs and the Muellers were good friends and would remain so even after the investigation was completed. “And he was interested in that, wanted to know
