The Appearance of Impropriety
Dogs This Election

In my last column, I noted the many “red flags” that have popped up regarding the 2020 presidential election. I won’t repeat that litany, except to say the appearance of impropriety is at least suggestive and, if you are the worrying sort, potentially damning. It’s partly a matter of what I think of as the Goldfinger principle, after the avid gold smelter and nuclear weapons amateur Auric Goldfinger. Goldfinger was a sensitive man. He didn’t like it when people began looking into to his business ventures with too much curiosity, largely, no doubt, because many were ostentatiously illegal and, in some cases, evidence of grandiose homicidal insanity.

The appearance of impropriety vs. the Biden Industrial Complex's stock response -- plausible deniability. And another chestnut from the past, the seriousness of the charge vs. the nature of the evidence. Enough of these bygone notions add up to one big honking swamp.

Just remember how long it took to turn this nation off track in the one year of virus - and imagine what 4 years of illicit Dem rule will bring. They now have a blueprint to follow. And every fraudulent vote not detected (and you have only 2 months now to find them) will be made permanent. One the Dems are in charge there will NEVER be an investigation to rid them.

The list of things that you have to believe in order to accept a Biden win is long indeed. Absolutely the one and only indicator of a Biden win was inflated polls. The quote Hillary, "we have to suspend disbelief"

The theft of President Trump's election victory was so brazen that it is best described by a statement frequently made by a friend: "A blind man with leather glasses on could see it". Again, the question arises, "What is ANYBODY going to do about it?".

I can understand how Hillary did not do that well in some of these cities in the battleground states, because I remember reading that she did not even visit some of these states and, effectively, took them for granted. What I would be curious about is, how well did Biden fare in these cities when matched up against Obama's results.

It's more than appearance, Roger, it's reality. The democrats cheated all across the blue states and they got caught. No amount of media masking, twisting, hiding or crying conspiracy theory is going to change that. The only people who refuse to see it are a few liberal acquaintences who will soon become history.

CNN analyst Mary Katherine Ham caused a great disturbance in the CNN energy on Saturday's Newsroom by decrying liberal double standards on COVID and conceding elections. Anchor Ana Cabrera began by expressing disgust at the MAGA protests: "Ryan, the president's supporters, they have poured into the streets of Washington this weekend to try to give life to these unfounded and baseless claims of a rigged election. We literally had far right groups like the Proud Boys marching down Pennsylvania Avenue.This election is over. How did this become normal?" Politico's Ryan Lizza replied it's "because the president has decided to delegitimize the crystal clear results of the election."

Democrat Joe Biden was called out on Saturday for his silence as left-wing extremists that journalists identified as being affiliated with Black Lives Matter and Antifa attacked pro-Trump demonstrators in Washington, D.C., who had gathered to show their support for President Donald Trump. Various public figures called out Biden after he repeatedly campaigned on “unity” and “healing” America. The Democratic Party tweeted on Saturday that Biden would “restore the soul of this nation and bring us together.”Most of the violence happened at night after the majority of Trump supporters had left the area after the “Million MAGA March,” which featured a brief appearance by the president.

Election Day 2020 was unusual for several predictable reasons involving high in-person turnout and veritable avalanches of mail-in ballots. One exceptionally odd event, however, took everyone by surprise — vote counting suddenly stopped for hours in several key swing states late Tuesday night. One of these mysterious halts occurred in Fulton County, Georgia, where election officials insisted that a broken water pipe necessitated a four-hour delay before counting of absentee ballots could resume. Yet evidence for what would have been quite a serious plumbing issue has been strangely elusive. There doesn’t appear to be any paperwork involving this leak.

Earlier today my RedState colleague Nick Arama reported that House GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is speculating that Nancy Pelosi may no longer have the votes in the House Democrat caucus to remaining Speaker of the House.A few days ago, when the late-deciding House races started to go against the Democrats, I wrote this story about the possible implications coming out of the House Democrat Caucus conference call where fingers of blame were being pointed over the losses that were suffered by various incumbents who had faced difficult races.

As far as almost all of the mainstream media and the half of the country that voted for Joe Biden is concerned, President Donald Trump and his supporters are sore losers.The president's refusal to accept the projections of media vote counters that he has lost the election, as well as his claims that the election is being stolen from him, is being put down as more than just poor sportsmanship. He is accused, along with many of the 71 million Americans that voted for him, of spreading "disinformation" about claims of voter fraud about officials in Democratic-run cities and states allegedly wrongly influencing the count

Elections don’t make democracies; free and fair elections do. Today, in the midst of post-election chaos, we find ourselves in a fight for the latter. In that sense, this election is about far more than Donald Trump the man, or even his policies. The question is this: either democracy survives or one political party will be allowed to bully, lie, cheat, and steal its way into power. The stakes, at this moment, in this country that we love, could not be higher. Some Republicans are used to losing and habituated to concession, but the President and the largest number of voters for any Republican in American history know

Joe Biden has made it clear that he will do his best to “unify” the country following an election in which more than 71 million Americans – nearly half the electorate – voted for Donald Trump. It is an admirable goal. But any chance of that happening depends on the American people having confidence that the election outcome resulted from a fair and honest process. Though never perfect, our electoral system has generally instilled confidence for the past 231 years, which is why it has worked so well. Under the contentious circumstances of this election, the traditional media’s decision to declare a victor before the official process

Like the Potemkin villages quickly erected to hide the squalor in which Russian peasants lived during the reign of Catherine the Great, a façade of legitimacy is under construction by the Fourth Estate to cover up the widespread voting irregularities that gave us “President-Elect Biden.” Never mind that the election was prematurely called for our erstwhile vice president by the same “news” media that steadfastly refused to report his well-documented history of racism, influence peddling, serial plagiarism, and conspicuous cognitive decline. They now expect the electorate to accept their word that Biden has won the presidency a month before he is elevated to that office by the Electoral College.

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.

Pennsylvania is planning to take additional steps to address a sharp increase in coronavirus infections and hospitalizations, including requiring masks to be worn indoors with limited exceptions, officials said Tuesday. In addition, starting Friday, anyone who enters Pennsylvania must be tested at least 72 hours before arrival, and if they can or do not get a test, they must quarantine for 14 days. The order does not apply to people who commute to neighboring states for work or health care, officials said, and will be largely self-enforced. Pennsylvania already has a statewide mask mandate, limits on indoor and outdoor gatherings and occupancy restrictions

As Michael Anton and others predicted months before Election Day, media and tech companies have launched a full-scale attack on our democratic process by rushing to name Joe Biden president-elect prematurely and to silence dissent. Even the supposedly conservative Fox News has resorted to outright censorship of legitimate challenges to this narrative.Everyone who stayed up to watch the news on election night remembers Trump’s massive, double-digit lead in the swing states. They also remember the media’s bizarre dawdling to call any of Trump’s obvious victories—Florida, Texas, even Alaska.

House Democrats nominated Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) to another term as House Speaker on Wednesday, with no other representative competing for the post, and she must now prevail in a floor vote in January to officially retain the gavel. Pelosi has served as House Speaker from 2007 to 2011 and again from 2019 to the present. Democrats also nominated House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland and Majority Whip James Clyburn of South Carolina to additional terms. The nomination comes after Democrats lost a string of House seats, which has considerably thinned the party’s majority. Republicans stand to gain as many as 13 seats once election results are finalized

Former President Barack Obama has written not one but two memoirs about himself, the second out this week, which I’m calling “Everyone Who Disagrees with Me is Racist, Part II.” His first memoir, “Dreams From My Father,” was a showy substitute for record and experience at the start of his first presidential term; his second memoir is meant as a defense of his two presidential terms, which were repudiated by the election of Donald Trump and the flow of minority voters away from the Democratic Party. Republicans built a big tent these last four years, while Democrats became older and whiter, and Democrats recognize this as a threat to their influence.

I know of one Christmas party I won’t be attending this year. The Centers for Disease Control have issued their guidelines for how to make merry during the holidays, and if it’s any indication of how the epidemiologists, researchers, doctors, and bureaucrats let their hair down for Christmas, I’ll take a pass. No singing Christmas carols, even outdoors. No drinking (I guess they didn’t feel it necessary to say “no smoking” either), and no loud music. I guess blasting out Handel’s Messiah while shooting B-52s and singing “Jingle Bells” at the top of my voice is out this year. Fox News:

Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock said in a 2011 sermon that Americans cannot serve God while also serving in the U.S. military. The newly unearthed comments threaten to complicate Warnock's candidacy in a tight Georgia Senate race: Georgia is home to the fifth largest active duty military population in the country, according to a 2018 Department of Defense report. "America, nobody can serve God and the military," Warnock said in the sermon delivered at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he serves as senior pastor. "You can't serve God and money. You cannot serve God and mammon at the same time."
