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.

No blue wave, but a tsunami of hate

In the early evening following the midterm elections, Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s wife was home alone when she suddenly became startled by a loud thumping at her door. The thumping came from a group of Antifa radicals, whose desire it was to strike terror into the hearts of Mr. Carlson’s family. Susan Carlson ran upstairs as the mob of vigilantes that CNN prefers to refer to as “protesters,” screamed disgusting threats at the Carlson residence, spray-painted the driveway and continued to try to force entry through the front door, which they broke.

Clinton Claims Abrams Was Robbed In GA

Tuesday evening Hillary Clinton told a crowd that Stacey Abrams, the apparent loser in Georgia’s recent gubernatorial election, would have won the race if not for Republican chicanery. She claimed—without evidence, to use a term much beloved of the media lately—that the “people on the other side” were guilty of undermining the rights of Georgia voters: Stacey is really in the arena and she is fighting for the right to vote and have your vote counted … If she had a fair election, she already would have won.

But Who’s Counting?

A frequent complaint from reasonable Americanos is that political races and the annoying campaigns that accompany them last waaaay too long. Sometimes it seems they’re a permanent feature of our public landscape. Now it has become reasonable to object that election vote counting is too lengthy and tortuous as well. Take what’s happening in Florida. Please. The Middle Ages eventually ended. So do the NBA playoffs. Heck, even Fidel Castro’s speeches came to their exhausting ends. But will the Florida elections? Who will be first in with their results and conclusions? Florida or the Mueller investigation?

At this writing, the Senate and gubernatorial race results in Florida are officially in recount chaos, having triggered the “Election Lawyers’ Full Employment Act.” Surely, HBO is anticipating a sequel to "Recount," its 2008 movie about the state’s dramatic 2000 presidential election recount (starring Kevin Spacey with “hanging chads” in a supporting role). Eighteen years later, there is more high-stakes post-election drama because Florida is as politically split now as it was when Bush v. Gore transfixed the nation. As a Florida resident, I also know that the state relishes its center stage role as the largest presidential swing state,

How Trump can pull off ultimate trick
to make Mueller disappear
The Hill, by Jonathan Turley    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/13/2018 5:05:37     Post Reply
The appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general of the United States this week has raised a chorus of objections over what is viewed as an effort by President Trump to gain control over and possibly scuttle the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller. Many have cited Whitaker’s past comments criticizing the investigation as evidence of such a nefarious design. But what if the greatest threat to Mueller is not Whitaker’s personal views but Whitaker’s government position? As an official who was not confirmed by the Senate to serve in the Justice Department, Whitaker could prove to be a

Democrats and the Rule of Lawyers

Cicero is remembered today as a great Roman orator, but few recall that he was a lawyer by trade. In fact, he first rose to public prominence by using his rhetorical skills to secure the acquittal of a man accused of patricide. Cicero’s eloquence eventually enabled him to rise to the rank of Consul, in which capacity he presided over the execution without trial of five Senators. He was exiled for this unlawful act and, at length, was himself illegally executed. There’s a lesson here for the Democrats who increasingly employ lubricious lawyers to circumvent the rule of law.

Whitaker May Be a Bad Choice,
but He’s a Legal One

President Trump’s selection of Matthew Whitaker to serve as acting attorney general has provoked alarm across the political spectrum, and for good reason. But as troubling as Mr. Whitaker may turn out to be for the rule of law, Mr. Trump was acting within the scope of his constitutional authority. The move was legal, so long as it is temporary, which the law defines as up to 210 days. That’s not to say that Mr. Whitaker, who until Wednesday had been chief of staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, should take over the Justice Department even temporarily.

The Silence of Mueller´s Trump-Russia ´Canaries
Real Clear Investigations, by Paul Sperry    Original Article

No evidence has surfaced indicating that President Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Still, two years later, the president’s opponents insist the truth is out there and they know where – in the memory banks and computer files of Trump’s former associates who have struck deals to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.But people with direct knowledge of the situation say the premise of that speculation is false: It´s highly unlikely that these associates possess proof of collusion and are singing about it to Mueller. “It’s wishful thinking by Trump haters,”

If the midterms were a
referendum, Trump won

After flipping dozens of seats in the midterm elections, Democrats are set to take control of the House of Representatives. Many pundits and analysts have attempted to frame the results as a referendum on President Trump. Among these, there seems to be a consensus that the president has somehow been “repudiated.” Not so fast. To be sure, there are reasons for Democrats to cheer: Despite significant structural disadvantages and a difficult Senate map, some great ballot initiatives were passed, state legislatures got bluer in many instances, and Democrats won governorships in some key states.

Democrats face tough 2020 battle
after blowing chance at blue wave
The Hill, by Kristin Tate    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 11/11/2018 9:48:55     Post Reply
If there’s one thing that the left is consistently poor at, it’s managing expectations. Since President Trump’s inauguration, his opponents hung their fortunes on the idea of a massive blue wave to sweep away congressional Republicans in the midterms. Instead, we saw a modest Democratic gain in the House of Representatives and a strong Republican gain in the Senate. Democrats lost crucial races where they ran candidates too far left to carry moderate or conservative districts; it was moderate Democrats who had the best shots, while most of the hardcore leftists lost race after race Tuesday.

How Andrew Gillum lost
Florida’s governor’s race

It would be another 30 months before he´d know it, but Andrew Gillum´s campaign for Florida governor was over before it even began, killed in the spring of 2016 by poisoned filet mignon, twice-baked sweet potatoes and Southern-style strawberry shortcake. In the two-story All Saints apartment of Tallahassee lobbyist Adam Corey, Gillum, the mayor of the city, welcomed a few dozen consultants, businessmen and supporters to the first fundraiser for a political committee that would go on to fuel his as-yet announced statewide run. The $37,400 haul was modest, all things considered. People who attended barely remember the scene.

Fox News Channel announced Wednesday it will support CNN’s lawsuit against the White House over the temporary suspension of White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass” press credential, revealing the company will file an amicus brief in defense of the partisan network. Fox News issued a statement accusing the White House of “weaponizing” Secret Service passes for reporters: FOX News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential. We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized.

Sen. Jeff Flake announced Wednesday that he will not vote to advance any new judicial nominees through the Judiciary Committee, nor will he vote to confirm picks on the Senate floor, until he gets his way on unrelated legislation to prevent the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller. Mr. Flake made the announcement on the Senate floor minutes after his bid to pass the bill failed. His threat could block the committee from approving any more judges this year, since the GOP only holds a one-seat majority on the panel. It’s less catastrophic to approving judges on the Senate floor,

According to a report in TMZ, the lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels and one of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s less-credible accusers was taken into custody Wednesday after a confrontation “at an exclusive apartment building in the Century City area of L.A.” The celebrity-news site, citing “law enforcement sources,” said the reported attack by Mr. Avenatti took place Tuesday though.

Washington — Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York has joined about 200 climate-change activists as they stage a protest at the office of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. Protesters are calling on Democratic leaders to put forward a “Green New Deal” that includes a swift transition to 100 percent renewable energy in line with findings of a recent report on climate change by United Nations. Some protesters were being arrested Tuesday after refusing to leave a hallway outside Pelosi’s office.

Christine Blasey Ford is no longer in the headlines, but she’s still collecting cash through GoFundMe accounts set up by friends and fans who wanted to show their support for her attempt to derail Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s path to the Supreme Court. As of Monday, more than $850,000 had been pledged to the two biggest online solicitations, with one of them, personally blessed by Ms. Blasey Ford, still raking in more than $4,000 over the weekend. The organizers of the funds have been strikingly secretive about their operations, declining to respond to messages about the cash they’ve raised.

The election results for Arizona are in, and Democratic Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema has won, winning the seat held by outgoing Republican Sen. Jeff Flake. It´s a puzzling result, not the least because the vote count took a week. In mitigation, there were far fewer warnings of fraud than we are currently seeing in Florida, and the delay was solely the result of 640,000 mail-in ballots that had yet to be counted. (snip) McSally may have lowered her own voters´ enthusiasm factor by acting standoffish from Donald Trump at first
