PINE TOWNSHIP — Had you spent any space of time in this northern suburb of Pittsburgh listening to voters, finding out what things mattered to them when it came to schools, community growth, economic prosperity, and the emotional impact of COVID-19 lockdowns, you would have at least been skeptical of the media narrative and the polls that claimed suburban voters here are no longer center-right. Not Republican per se, just center-right.Most reporters certainly didn’t take the time to do so. Instead, they relied on the scolding of our cultural curators in sports, media, and Hollywood as an indicator of how these college-educated, affluent voters would vote.

What good did it do? I wish it made a difference but unlikely.

This is like Scarborough saying it was a repudiation of the Democrats. We really won. Don't fight.

Voters may have stood up to the culture and declared their center-right values; but the media have stood up to the voters and asserted their power to override everything.

Saturday’s Media Declaration
Is A Naked Attempt To Silence
Republicans, And Nothing Has Changed

Posted by Garnet 11/8/2020 11:33:47 AM Post Reply
Nothing has changed since Friday night. You might find that strange, given the media stampede to certify the election results for their man, but it’s crucial. The calls made Saturday morning are as arbitrary as they were last Tuesday, could just as easily have waited for Monday, and fly in the face of massive evidence of voter irregularities that, at minimum, should be heard in court before anyone considers calling the election.Add pending lawsuits and official recounts in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, Michigan and Wisconsin, and the conclusion is an attempt by the American media to pick our president and decide our election.

A House Divided Along New Lines 5 replies
Posted by Garnet 11/5/2020 5:45:07 PM Post Reply
America’s election reflects perfectly her psychological state. Divided and frustrated, citizens are realigning not along race or gender lines, but along philosophical ones. What does it mean to be an American? Who gets to define it? On one side: citizens of a Republic — Republicans. On the other side, the Oligarchy and the mob — Democrats. The two sides are fighting for control of America. Americans used to agree on certain things. They believed in God. They believed that America was a force for good in the world. They believed in the individual. They believed in protecting the innocent.

This morning at my site I had a post explaining the misery, at least from my perspective, of watching the American political system devolve into failure this week: My mood isn’t the result of despondency that the election is lost. I don’t think it’s lost. At least, I’m not sure it’s lost. What I’ve recognized, what that late night on Tuesday taught me, is that the election is just a symptom of something a whole lot worse. At the end of the day, it’s this: the game will continue until the Left says it’s over.

A Democratic drive to win control of the U.S. Senate appeared to fall short, with Democrats picking up only one Republican-held seat while six other races remained undecided early on Wednesday.Democrats defeated Republican Senators Cory Gardner of Colorado and Martha McSally of Arizona but lost the Alabama seat held by Democratic Senator Doug Jones. To win the majority in the Senate, Democrats would need to pick up three Republican seats if Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is elected president and Senator Kamala Harris wields the tie-breaking vote as vice president. But the Democratic path to victory narrowed sharply as results poured in and the final outcome may not

A Pennsylvania bakery that has successfully predicted the last three presidential elections with its cookie poll has revealed the final tally in its Trump-Biden contest ahead of Election Day. The results as of Sunday afternoon, while not the official tally, were the final numbers released by Lochel’s Bakery of Hatboro, Pa., before Americans find out who has won the actual presidential election. They show President Trump leading former Vice President Joe Biden handily, with a staggering 27,903 red Trump cookies sold compared to just 5,114 blue Biden cookies.

There is one clear leading indicator pointing to Donald Trump still having a chance to win the election — stores around America are fortifying themselves in anticipation of election-related violence. Businesses in cities like New York City, Washington, DC, Los Angeles and Chicago are boarding up as if a Category 5 hurricane is bearing down. Everyone tends to be coy about the reason why. The cops in Beverly Hills worry about “protest activity.” Tiffany refers to “potential election-related activity.” Saks Fifth Avenue says it’s taking precautions “in the event of civil unrest due to the current election.”
The Left Doesn't Fear Amy Coney Barrett,
It Fears the Constitution

Nothing threatens the progressive project more than the existence of a Supreme Court that adheres to the Constitution. It's really that simple. That's what the tantrum over Justice Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation is all about. The notion that the same Democrats who shelved the judicial filibuster and now threaten to destroy the separation of powers with a revenge scheme to pack the Supreme Court -- the same people, incidentally, so fond of smear-drenched confirmation hearings -- are sticklers for process or decorum is simply ludicrous.For one thing, no norms have been undone by the confirmation of Barrett. If Democrats won a Senate majority in 2016, Merrick Garland would already be ensconced

Democrat Delusions About Early Voting 9 replies

For those who rely on the legacy media for election news, it would be easy to conclude that early voters have already doomed President Trump’s chances of reelection. CNN analyst Harry Enten, for example, advises us that the current high volume of mail-in ballots confirms national polls showing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden with a comfortable lead over Trump. Likewise, Slate tells its readers, “The Early Voting Revolution Is Already Helping Joe Biden.” But we have seen such headlines before. Just prior to Election Day 2016, Politico ran a story titled, “Record-breaking early voting fuels Democratic optimism.” That optimism turned out to be delusional, as will this year’s premature exhilaration.

I do not like being wrong. Looking back on the journalism of the last few years, I have concluded this makes me one weird journalist. Most journalists, in fact most commentators, seem to prefer to be wrong — spectacularly, melodramatically wrong. In 2013, when I met Donald Trump for the first time, I concluded that he could be a successful politician. More than that, I concluded that if he ran for president he would win. He was not like any other politician I have known. He was smart, aggressive, and he knew enough about the issues to get by.
Another Pollster Sees a Trump Win 3 replies

The Trafalgar Group’s Robert Cahaly is an outlier among pollsters in that he thinks President Trump will carry Michigan, Pennsylvania, or both, and hence be reelected with roughly 280 electoral votes. (I explained his thinking here.) Last week another pollster, Jim Lee of Susquehanna Polling and Research, echoed some of Cahaly’s points about shy Trump voters being missed by pollsters. “There is definitely a submerged Trump vote,” Lee said. Asked for a prediction, he hedged a little but then predicted a Trump win: “I can’t call it. If the turnout is going to be what I think, Trump wins it.”

George W. Bush congratulated Joe Biden on his election victory Sunday—and delivered an unmistakable message to Donald Trump that he must now concede. The only living former Republican president broke his silence more than 24 hours after Biden was declared the winner in a call by TV networks and the Associated Press to say that he had spoken to the Democratic victor, and to Kamala Harris, the vice president-elect. 'I just talked to the President-elect of the United States, Joe Biden,' he said in a statement. No Republican leader has so far called Biden president-elect. 'Though we have political differences,

Suppose that you are an intrepid reporter — accent on the "intrepid." You witness voter fraud so vast that it reverses the outcome of a presidential election in a few states, enough to cause what should be the losing candidate to win. As a reporter, what do you want to do? (snip) If Fox wants to win back the respect of conservatives, it should unleash its intrepid reporters. Most conservatives would greatly enjoy learning how voter fraud can be committed, how much has occurred in past elections, and how successful prosecutions have been. They would also like to hear from judicial scholars

Wallace said, “It would seem to me that Republicans on Capitol Hill have a role to play in this. A very few of them have said, look, you pursue your legal options, but, you know, damn down the rhetoric, like Mitt Romney, like Pat Toomey.” He added, “There are a lot who are just silent.
