Nothing To Worry About’

Former HUD Secretary Ben Carson is calling for a “real, open” investigation of the 2020 presidential election.During an interview on Fox News, Carson told host Neil Cavuto that he agrees that Donald Trump “was robbed” of an election victory.“I think it’s certainly worthy of investigation,” Carson said.Carson voiced his full support for an open investigation into “credible” evidence and claims “so we can put it to rest once and for all.”“What disturbs me is when people say, ‘You can’t even talk about that.’ It’s like you stole the cookies from the cookie jar and you said,

The problem is that the Demonrats and Dominion know that they stole the election with massive fraud. They are desperate to keep it from being actually investigated.

If they have nothing to hide, they should welcome a detailed audit. My question is, what if they do find substantial voter fraud and international interference.......what happens next?

The chance of finding evidence at this late date to prove President Trump “was robbed” of an election victory is remote. In many states the procedures for verifying the integrity of the ballots county were eliminated. Just as it is impossible to prove many ballots were fraudulent, it is impossible to prove many ballots were valid. There is circumstantial evidence the proves President Trump “was robbed.” The gains made by Republicans down ballot showed that he had "coat tails." Never in past elections has the candidate providing the "coat tails" lost the election.

This is just an aside, but sometimes when I can't find my bookmark, I use a piece of paper from where ever to mark my place in what I'm reading. I found a book I was reading in November and on my scrap of paper bookmark, I had written 'President Trump 410 votes.' I had evidently seen it on TV and wrote it down. Dr. Carson is such a treasure and I wish he had spoken out earlier.

Dr. Carson is suggesting reasoning and logic. It is deceit, criminality, dishonesty driven by naked power hunger that we are dealing with. Of course the good doctor knows all of this. There IS value in raising this issue now. But very little value unless it is accompanied by action.

Okay people. While the outcome of the 2020 election may not be able to be changed, which I am not sure is true, we should still get the truth out in the public square. Just because it may not end with the result we want, it will be forever known just how corrupt and lawless the democrat party actually is. They should be made to own that they stole what what could not win. This fight is worth having. The exposure of all the cheating the democrat party committed must see the light of day. Democrats want this to go away or at least just remain a question in the public square because they believe they can set the narrative that people who question the results are crazy Trump supporters and white supremacists. It is our duty to reveal what they did. The online tampering of the voting machines alone would be devastating. We cannot relent. We must be as ruthless as the democrat party because that is the only thing that will save the Republic. The majority of the American people are interested and want to know the truth. The only ones fighting this are the democrats, globalists and media. We the people deserve to know what happened and if we do not fight to reveal the truth, it will never be known.

An old proverb, "Possession is nine tenths of the law" applies here." If Donald Trump had refused to leave the White House and surrounded it with the NG until the election fraud was resolved, he would still be there today. I can't understand why he left under the obvious coup that took place in November. At this point, the saying applies to Biden, he will be harder to remove now than a tick from a sheep dog even if all six states in question are proven to have cheated.

If your car were stolen from your driveway in broad daylight, would you wait FIVE MONTHS to call the police? We've known for 61 years that Chicago's mayor Daley stole the election for JFK. What happened? Nothing. If he hadn't crossed the CIA or whomever, he'd have served two terms. We know Baideng won't make that mistake.

How did a country that is so "systemically racist" allow a black man ... sorry, Black ... become a brain surgeon and a member of a white (White??) POTUS's cabinet? It's a wonderment. At least Dr. Carson speaks out when given the opportunity, so please don't chastise him. We haven't heard from others mainly because they are not being allowed on the air or interviewed by the print media. And because the law suits for "defamation" scare the lawyers, few will now say anything. That's what got Lou Dobbs thrown of the air in a New York Minute. Trump was blocking the Chinese from advancing and their running dogs were afraid the money spigot would get turned off so they united against Trump worldwide. Few realized the swamp was actually a living thing ... like a horror movie. It swallows everything against it.

Last night I had a dream. It might have been the scotch but more probably it was the pad thai chicken my wife made (she's great with ribs or mexican dishes but, thai?). In the dream, Biden finally crossed a line and the Supremes heard the Texas case. Several State courts allowed cases. AGs hadn't followed rules. There were ballots destroyed. Witnesses were listened to. The election was declared fraudulent. And then, it was decided that this was so unusual that something unusual had to be done. Trump was inaugurated. Not only was Biden removed (something he didn't even understand was happening) but EVERY EO, EVERY bill he signed, was declared null and void. I'm gonna have the same meal again tonight.

#7 makes an excellent point. If the election was not fraudulent, the democrats would have picked up several seats in the House, like they were predicted to. Instead, they LOST several seats. To me, the down-ballot issue is the smoking gun that proves fraud. Who goes into a voting booth and votes Republican all the way down ballot, then votes Democrat at the top of the ticket? Answer: Nobody! On top of that, Biden basically doesn't even campaign, and on the few occasion he wonders out of his basement, he draws maybe a dozen people. And we're supposed to believe this idiot gets 80 million votes? Yeah right.

To question by poster #6: "if audit shows fraud, what next?" While immediately kicking Biden out of office would be problematic, here's a possible path forward: 1. since both the White House and the dem majority in Congress are frauds, just freeze their ability to pass new legislation, regulations, or EOs; 2. hold the next POTUS election in 2022.

President Biden’s speech Wednesday night failed on all counts: It didn’t sell his latest spending plan, it didn’t sell his larger agenda — and, worst of all, it didn’t sell him.Start with the utterly bizarre “mask theater.” All the politicians in the room have been fully vaccinated, and Biden’s own CDC says that’s enough. So why the universal masking, and the social distancing? The message, cutting across the president’s occasional optimism, was that this nightmare will never end — which simply isn’t true.Equally, obviously false was Biden’s now-routine effort to claim all the credit for successful vaccinations: All that was set in motion before he took office.

President Joe Biden used his first joint address to Congress to call for a set of policies aimed at fundamentally transforming and enlarging the government’s role in the lives of American families. Biden pitched to the American people a vision of a society dominated by a centralized government, unfettered by counterweights or competing sources of security or authority. In Biden’s America, the youngest children will attend government pre-k, the government will deliver their parents child-rearing checks, subsidized child care, and offer tuition-free community college. It’s an America where the guiding hand of big government is everywhere from the cradle through the diploma.

And for the same reason: To tell the world that the sign-planter holds wonderful beliefs that he’s willing to impose upon and attribute to the rest of his family. It’s surely not because the sign-planter thinks he’s persuading anyone of the rightness of his position, as if the neighbors reading the sign will say to themselves, “Gee, ‘Democracy dies in darkness’ is a great point.
