Karl Rove: Trump's legal efforts won't
change the outcome of the race

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 11/12/2020 10:55:32 AM

Karl Rove, the past political guru to former President George W. Bush, said President Trump’s legal efforts in a handful of states aren’t going to be enough to change the ultimate outcome of the 2020 election. Mr. Rove said the president is well within his rights to go to court over concerns about fraud and transparency in his race against Democratic challenger Joseph R. Biden. “But the president’s efforts are unlikely to move a single state from Mr. Biden’s column, and certainly they’re not enough to change the final outcome,” Mr. Rove wrote in the Wall Street Journal in a piece published late Wednesday.

"Let grievances go," says the criminal who'd sell his own mother for a dollar.

That is certainly not the way he talked during Bush v Gore. Perhaps it would be a good time for him to tell the Bush family to "let grievances go." I have to quit reading this stuff. It's making me sick.

I wasn't aware that Rove was in the loop on the Trump Team anti-fraud strategy. They were preparing for what occurred before the election, and I doubt that he was consulted. Then again, that never stops Karl Rove

I don't remember Karl Rove ever being right about anything, not do I remember him having the courage to stand up and say anything that was true, or defend those he works for. The man is obnoxious, unvisual, no speaking ability, and not intelligent. I have no idea why anyone hires him.

Sorry for the second post but I'm just wondering what kind of inside information Karl has to be so confident that PDJT can't produce the evidence of a tainted election. Also, I'm not the type to riot (like the other side), but I also won't forget.

Rove doesn't understand the Trump game plan. The intent is not to change the vote count but to show that the process used to count the votes in key states was unconstitutional and denied equal protection under law for Republicans. The goal is to have the courts block the certification of votes in states with rampant corruption. If they can't approve electors based on a certified vote then the state delegations will determine the outcome. The delegations are 28-26 in favor of Republicans in the House.

Forget Karl, the proof is not only the dead people voting, fake ballots pushing total votes higher than registered voters, trump votes thrown away or poll inspectors not allowed in. The strongest proof of massive fraud is the computer switched votes from Trump to Biden, and there is forensic tracked proof of that. Biden lost big time, and it will be shown in court.

What Potato Head Rove and the rest of these Republican Rhinos, Democrat Communists, Billionaire elitists, and of course the media pond scum do not comprehend is that we will not accept this election being stolen. There will be an outcry and outbreak of rage and determination to get our Republic back that will come as a complete shock. A storm of immense proportion is coming at these traitors that will shock and awe them. Carl Rowe is a money grubbing gas bag full of you know what.

I have no confidence that Biteme won't end up in the White House. At a minimum, Trumps lawsuits should expose the fraud that we all know happens. The other outcome will be that a huge percentage of voters will view Biteme as Thief in Chief. There will be hell to pay in 2022 regardless the outcome. No matter who wins in 2020, their presidency will be viewed as illegitimate. The democrats however, will rule as if they have a mandate.

Rove makes more money when the Democrats are in office, and he has Republican clients who spend a lot of money. When the incumbents are Republicans, Trump has their back, not Rove. Karl Rove is the "genius" who nearly blew two Presidential elections: GWB won both elections, each by only one state, Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004. Some genius.

Despite the opinions of the swamp and new world order guys, it's clear to me that if this fraud is allowed to go by our elections will FOREVER be compromised. I know it looks clearly uphill, but ONLY because the media called the election. In any event, if you had to name one person in America to fight for this right now, it would be ... Donald J Trump.

He may be right, since the main State is totally in the bag for the fraud and corruption - that being Pennsylvania. After all, they recently had elected officials convicted of fraud. But, the process has to move along, and see what legal challenges there are. It does beg the question how Biden has nearly 10 million more votes than Obama.

“To win, Mr. Trump must prove systemic fraud, with illegal votes in the tens of thousands. There is no evidence of that so far.” I see sufficient solid proof of systemic fraud, including hundreds of thousands of illegal votes. It all depends on the SCOTUS. If the SC, by nonfeasance, lets this Democrat voter fraud prevail, in my estimation it will be one of its greatest errors in history, and certainly will be in the top half-dozen. The SC has sufficient power and authority, but will Chief Justice Roberts and the eight justices exercise it? Their decision(s) in the next few weeks will affect the extent of presidential voter fraud for who knows how many years? Perhaps for decades, and certainly for 2024.

Is there a more worthless political pundit than Rove? But, you see, no matter how elections turn out, Karl rakes in the big bucks via his consulting company. So, lose-win, win-win, it's always a win for "the architect." I notice his white board is gone. Maybe after the last mid-terms somebody shoved it, um, somewhere where he can't get it out. Does his voice sound an octave higher?

Speaking of Karl Rove, I am thinking about George W. Bush. When he was campaigning in 2000, I remember him saying that Jesus was his role model. I was really impressed but it is short lived. Hey, George W Bush, please read James 4:17 - if we know the good we ought to do and don't do it, we sin. Guess what? President Donald Trump has the responsibility to every American citizen to tell us about the fraud going on. I guess George doesn't care. . .only when he wants a vote.

Certification is almost upon us. Yes, evidence is mounting of massive fraud, but how are you going to get any kind of meaningful relief from a state court that won't listen, or a state legislature that won't act (even though the Constitution expressly empowers them to do so)? I am starting to think the argument discussed by davew in Reply 12 is the best -- if Team Trump can convince the Supreme Court a Constitutional violation occurred, the Supreme Court may act (although I have my doubts about Roberts and Kavanaugh). If the Supreme Court blocks electoral votes from PA and a few other offending states, neither candidate gets to 270, it flips to a house vote, and Trump wins. Possible but challenging.

Without at least the clear threat of 71,000,000 Americans rising up to demonstrate a "scorched Earth" response to their looming disenfranchisement, the courts may not intercede and rule as this country's conservative majority expects. There wasn't even a tepid showing of incipient militancy when the president was being impeached last year. During the impeachment, the only "game plan" among conservatives was to overwhelm the dems at the polls, which we did. The dems and media conspirators responded by committing criminal acts, covered by mere fig leaves, willingly provided by those same media conspirators, to mask their real electoral failures. The courts may very well be reluctant to rule against the side that has shown the willingness and capability to riot, loot, and burn American cities vs the calculated likelihood of no real consequences.

I Apologize for a second post, but for the Weak of Heart, I offer this/these: Regardless of Legal Challenges Succeeding/Failing, Mr Trump has two (2) Aces in the Hole to retain His/Our Presidency. 1. Swing State Republican Legislatures will refuse to Certify their Vote Tallies forcing the decision into Congress. There are enough of these states to insure that Biden doesn't reach 270. Pennsylvania's House Leader has just announced words to that effect for Penn. 2. With more Republican States than DemoCrap States, and One (1) vote per state in each house of Congress, Mr Trump is a Sure-Winner, even when there are More Demo Reps than GOP Reos from a given state in the US House. Remember, it's the number of GOP States and not the number of GOP Reps that determine the voting pool in both houses. Our Founding Fathers were Geniuses by Providing this Path for 'We The People' to Select our President, because all Reps/Senators must Face 'Their People' in the final analysis. GOP State Legislatures are the Key to a Trump Win/Bidin Loss. They will direct their state's vote in each house of Congress. Any Sate GOP Legislator voting against Mr Trump is doomed in 2022. Hope this helps with those who feel defeated..... PS: There isn't enough DuckTape in the World to Safely Wrap Exploding Leftist's Heads, to protect Innocent ByStanders from Collateral Injuries, when the results of the Congestional Votes are announced. Also, watch for Massive Street Rioting in the Days following a favorable Trump Announcement and for weeks thereafter.

Gee, I would imagine the States' and U.S. Supreme Courts might take offense to this moron pollster making inane proclamations regarding their power. As Tokyo Rove must have missed in the discussions of the U.S. Constitution, the State Legislatures send the Electors to the Electoral College in December 14th for the vote. They can overrule the illegal "popular vote" and every single "swing State" is dominated by GOP majorities in both Senate and House. That was an "inconvenient truth" that Benedict Biden and George Soros failed to take into account. Sorry, Demonrats, the jig is up... Trump will be #46!

Regarding what the SCOTUS may or may not do, a thought occurred to me. Over my many years I have read they, like all citizens are influenced by public opinion and the news - which naturally makes sense. Are they really going to side with the team hellbent to add members to the court and dilute their individual power and influence? Perhaps even the liberals would not want that.

Karl is expecting PDT to go from left wing judge to judge, submitting evidence of fraud which they will summarily reject. Then go home with his tail between his legs. That is like the French generals who expected Hitler to attack the Maginot Line. Get bloodied and ask for negotiations. Trump has a completely different plan in mind. Creating an appropriate political background that will allow the five Conservative Justices of the SCOTUS to act. Watch and see.

By the way, per #50, #51 above, I'm certainly glad our Founding Fathers were FAR more intelligent than the trans-political pollster, Tokyo Rove, and put in protections to our Constitutional Republic for times such as this. Never in the history of the USA has there been such widespread corruption and cheating... thanks to George Soros and his Democrat employees.

Rove's stellar advice in the past includes telling GW Bush not to fight the WMD battle when actual WMDs were found all over Iraq. That is still costing the party, and GW's reputation. He is not a politician, he is a political consultant, and he serves himself, not his clients or the party. We are better off doing the opposite of whatever he says. They should hold a gala retirement party for Rove, then refuse his phone calls from then on. He is a loser and his advice will make you a loser too.

Rove's has no expertise in election fraud. His opinion is based on 60 yeas of successful Democratic voter fraud. He cannot comprehend that we live in a different world from when he cut his political teeth, smile, congratulate and plan for a career as political consultant . TRUMP makes winning the only acceptable alternative and he will use all the available legal avenues, technology and expertise to expose and eradicate the embedded fraud and lack of legal oversight in our state and local election boards. He may fall short of votes but the rules of engagement will have been established. The longer this continues, the better for our Nation. They won't soon forget that you can fight and at least try to win against Democratic corruption.

Right now I've reached a point I don't care about changing the outcome as much as I do in exposing the corruption in the voting system.

Rove may be an expert but he is neither omniscient or prescient. He should also be aware that there is a first time for any contingency. Trump is the first political candidate of any party (probably because he is NOT an establishments politician and does not follow the "unwritten" rules about forbidden subjects) to have seriously taken on the fight against allegations of electoral fraud and corruption, despite such allegations being spoken out of covered mouths and whispers in ears as known "facts of life" for 250 years of American politics.

A 12-year-old boy was shot multiple times in Chicago while picking up school supplies with his father, relatives and police said. Lamar Davis sat in a parked car with his dad Wednesday in the city’s Lawndale section, when someone in a maroon SUV rolled down a rear window and opened fire with a .45-caliber handgun, hitting the youngster in the back, hip, leg and buttocks, the Chicago Tribune reported. The boy was rushed to Stroger Hospital in fair condition; his father was not wounded, the Tribune reported.(Snip) “Kids can’t go outside, they can’t do anything,” added the worried mom,

A major world bank proposed a 5% tax on anyone working from home after the COVID-19 pandemic ends. Deutsche Bank researchers argued that people working from home enjoy economic privileges that do not extend to those forced to work in person. “Remote workers are contributing less to the infrastructure of the economy whilst still receiving its benefits,” analyst Luke Templeman wrote. In its “What We Must Do To Rebuild” report, Deutsche Bank said such a tax was long overdue. Researchers argued that remote workers don’t make as many daily purchases as in-person workers, therefore they should contribute to the economy in some other

A joint statement released by federal and state officials on Thursday described last week’s presidential election as the “most secure in American history” despite calls from President Donald Trump’s campaign that the election was “stolen.” The letter was signed by leaders of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the U.S. Election Assistance Commission and the National Association of State Election Directors, among others. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency was established two years ago as a branch of Homeland Security during the Trump administration.

President Donald Trump's post-election purge is about to pivot to the Department of Homeland Security, where a top cybersecurity predicts his head will roll after he set up a 'rumor control' website to debunk false election claims. Top U.S. cybersecurity official Christopher Krebs has told associates he expects to be fired by the White House, three sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. Krebs, who heads the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), did not return messages seeking comment. CISA and the White House declined comment.

Karl Rove, the past political guru to former President George W. Bush, said President Trump’s legal efforts in a handful of states aren’t going to be enough to change the ultimate outcome of the 2020 election. Mr. Rove said the president is well within his rights to go to court over concerns about fraud and transparency in his race against Democratic challenger Joseph R. Biden. “But the president’s efforts are unlikely to move a single state from Mr. Biden’s column, and certainly they’re not enough to change the final outcome,” Mr. Rove wrote in the Wall Street Journal in a piece published late Wednesday.

Ticketmaster could allow venues to ask people to prove they've had the coronavirus vaccine to get into sports events and concerts. Drug company Pfizer announced earlier this week that early data shows their vaccine is 90 per cent effective raising hopes that venues will be able to start hosting events again in 2021. Ticketmaster says it has been working on a post-pandemic plan that could use fans’ phones to verify their vaccination status or confirm they have tested negative before an event. The company says the plan would be based on their own ticket app, third party health information firms and vaccine distribution providers.

Washington—He’s been trashing the Trump administration’s COVID-19 vaccine plan but New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo stopped taking part back in June—skipping more than a dozen White House meetings and snubbing a one-on-one with Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, The Post has learned. Cuomo skipped out on 17 consecutive governor calls with the White House designed to brief state leaders on the vaccine development and rollout process, while calling them “circuses” and “a joke” in his frequent press briefings, a White House source confirmed. Cuomo on Monday blasted President Trump’s vaccine plan as “flawed” amid news of a Pfizer vaccine

President Trump’s campaign highlighted examples Wednesday of dead people registering to vote in Georgia, a contested swing state where presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden currently holds the lead. The Trump campaign has alleged widespread voter fraud as the president refuses to concede the election to Mr. Biden after several media outlets on Saturday named the Democrat as the winner of the Nov. 3 election. The president’s campaign claimed Deborah Jean Christiansen from Roswell, a suburb of Altalnta, passed away in May of 2019, yet someone registered her to vote Oct. 5, the day after the state’s deadline to register.

Ilhan Omar paid her husband's political consultancy firm $2.8million during the 2019-2020 election cycle, campaign finance records show. The Democrat congresswoman handed husband Tim Mynett's eStreet Group $1.6million between 2019 and July 22 this year, another $1.1million between July 22 and the end of September and paid an additional $27,000 since then.

The two largest payments in recent months were $404,338.75 paid on July 7 for digital advertising, and another $289,759.58 on July 24 for cable advertising.

At least 180 boxes filled with voting materials and uncounted votes from across Puerto Rico have surfaced since the Nov. 3 elections, the election commission said Tuesday, raising questions and concerns about the validity of the preliminary results. Initially, the Puerto Rico State Elections Commission placed the number at 40, but it has continued to rise since the boxes were first reported. Election officials blamed the new scandal on the volume of early ballots cast on the island, marking the second electoral debacle for Puerto Rico in a three-month period. In August, the U.S. territory was forced to suspend its primary elections

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla cashed in on his company’s coronavirus vaccine breakthrough. The executive sold more than $5.5 million worth of Pfizer stock on Monday—the same day the drugmaker said its experimental COVID-19 shot was more than 90 percent effective, records show. The groundbreaking development sent Pfizer’s share price surging as high as $41.99 that day, its highest level in more than a year. Bourla dumped more than 132,000 shares for $41.94 apiece, just five cents shy of that peak, according to a Tuesday securities filing. The filing says the sale had been arranged in advance under a so-called Rule 10b5-1

House Democrats have the majority and are ripping each other to shreds. Senate Democrats fell short for the third cycle in a row, but are only grousing about getting out-messaged by Republicans. The two caucuses are going about their soul-searching a little differently. The fallout in the House has been swift. Though Nancy Pelosi’s speakership appears safe, the chair of House Democrats’ campaign arm, Cheri Bustos, announced Monday she wouldn’t run for another term after more than a half dozen Democratic incumbents lost their races. Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Senate Democrats are expected to easily reelect their leadership team headed by

On Thursday, The Atlantic published an excerpt from former President Barack Obama’s forthcoming memoir, A Promised Land, set to be released next week. The excerpt echoes Obama’s classic style, praising America while furthering radical and subversive critiques. In one critical passage, Obama suggests he may have gone too easy on America’s faults during his eight years in office. “I recognize that there are those who believe that it’s time to discard the myth—that an examination of America’s past and an even cursory glance at today’s headlines show that this nation’s ideals have always been secondary to conquest and subjugation, a racial caste system and rapacious capitalism,
