isn't it INTERESTING, that EVERY TIME there is a recount demos get more votes?
isn't it INTERESTING, that EVERY TIME there is a election, 2 days later demos get more votes?
isn't it INTERESTING, that (according to demos) There is NO SUCH THING as voter fraud*


voter fraud* apparently, vote COUNTING fraud is a cat of a different color

A teacher in Florida found a container labeled “Provisional Ballot Box” in a storage area of her elementary school on Thursday.

Lakeisha Williams, of Broward County, said she discovered the ballot box two days after Election Day at Miramar Elementary School — where it was apparently left behind by election workers.

“I don’t know where it is now,” Williams said, noting that all fraud needed to be received by county officials before 5 p.m. Thursday.

gilbar said...

from wiki....
In elections in the United States, a provisional ballot is used to record a vote when there are questions about a given voter's eligibility that must be resolved* before the vote can count. The federal Help America Vote Act of 2002 guarantees that, in most states, the voter can cast a provisional ballot if the voter states that he or she is entitled to vote.[1]


must be resolved* must be needed to insure a demo victory

Isn't interesting that every time there is a voting issue it's always in a Democrat county and Democrat precinct. Florida has 67 counties, all of them except Democrat Broward and Palm Beach counties have no problem counting ballots. What do Broward and Palm Beach counties have in common? They are Democrat counties.

She's broken ribs before. But there comes a time when it's time to go home and play with the grandkids.

Let's assume Trump replaces her. There's a chance that Justice Thomas decides it's time to go home and play with the grandkids. Then maybe Breyer figures 'What's the point of holding on?"

5 Supreme Court nominations in one term? Not impossible. A 7-2 majority might convince Kagan to "grow" and all of a sudden the wise Latina is all on her own, and not in the best health herself.

Not at all.

The next Democrat president could make two or three times that many nominations.

Random Onlooker said...

So we're supposed to believe that an AZ senate race that was neck-and-neck suddenly has swung wildly in favor of the Democrat candidate two days later?

Maricopa County was a slight lead for Sinema on Election night, but the added "late early votes" blow it open.

Tonight's two sets of added results are heavily skewed in Sinema's favor - 55.7% of the first set of 133,659 added votes, and now 60.6% of the second set of 30,708 votes allegedly went to the Democrat candidate, who up 'til then was polling less than 50%.

Interesting.

Voting fraud is indeed alive and well.

mockturtle said...

Just read that Maricopa County still has 350K plus votes yet to count. Yuma County has yet to be counted, as I understand it.

bgates said...

Meanwhile in Broward County, they've found enough straight party Democrat ballots to swing three races -
Gillum for governor,
Nelson for Senator,
Hillary for President.

James K said...

This should be reversed: Isn't it interesting that every time there's obvious voter fraud, the Democrat "wins" the race?

Obvious in these cases meaning votes mysteriously not getting counted till long after the polls close, ballot boxes suddenly being discovered, or getting moved around without a chain of custody.

It looks like we're going to end up with 52 Senate seats for Republicans and 48 for Democrats as the Democrats steal two more elections.

Gotta keep looking for those ballots.

It's a real shame they only keep finding ballots in the Democrat strongholds. What a pleasant coincidence!

JaimeRoberto said...

Democrats won plenty of races and nobody is crying about vote fraud. But there are some specific suspicious cases going on right now, and somehow they all seem to be breaking for the Democrats.

buwaya said...

The scale of these cases is enormous. This surprised me, I didn't think they would dare go this far at this time.

And politically vastly important.

Its one thing to pick off a Senator when it doesn't change much, but here and now it is critical.

I do come from a place where political corruption is endemic, so my suspicions are reflexive.

I can only compare the scale of this to the Marcos administration, and he had complete control of all the counting, as well as the lawyers and the cops. But I have to say that after 1986 matters there have never occurred on this scale. If what is happening here right now were going on in that corrupt old place across the Pacific it would have many millions in the streets.

US society is, by this test, vastly more corrupt.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

Inga, goodbye.
You are vile and stupid and I dont care to see your foul posts.

When I was young we, my friends and I, risked life and fortune against a corrupt dictator given to stealing elections. I knew and dealt with many of his officers and operatives. None were quite as disgusting as you are. They were human beings, and in spite of their sinful state, they understood very well that they were doing evil, and were a bit ashamed.

M Jordan said...

OH Analytics has a Google doc you can download and punch in numbers in the remaining Arizona counties to see how it would effect the final vote. They provide present score, percentages so far in each county, and estimated number of remaining ballots. If all present percentages holds, Sinema wins by 20,000. But if Maricopa County’s remaining ballots go 53/47 to McSally, she wins by 9,000. (Sinema has a present 53/47 advantage there,). The remaining ballots are Election Day ballots which trended McSally’s way.

So this is far from over. McSally has many paths to victory. Betting markets have it at about 70/30 Sinema, which seems about right.

eric said...

In a neck and neck race in Arizona, McSally was 1% ahead. Then another 159.507 votes were counted two days after the election. Of those, McSally got 66,412 & Sinema got 93,095. That is to say, 42% to 58%.

eric said...

M. Jordan, it depends on where the ballots are left in Maricopa County.

You who lived here for over 30 years and took advantage of what this country has to offer and didn’t even think enough of it to become a citizen. YOU are the vile user America can do without.

Old Geezer said...

Inga and Chuck and all you other Life Long Republicans. Let me tell you a story about a Washington State gubernatorial election 15 or 20 years ago. The candidates were Dino Rossi--a Republican businessman and Christine Gregoire who was a Democrat and the Washington State Attorney General when she decided to run for Governor.

Washington State is pretty much (or at least was then pretty much) Republican east of the Cascades. King County (Seattle) and Pierce County (Tacoma and Olympia), Both are Democrat strongholds. The two counties together have maybe 40 to 45% of the state's population.

Dino won the governor's seat on election night. Gregoire demanded a recount. Additional ballots were found stuffed in trunks of cars. Gregoire got closer, but still lost. She demanded another recount. This time more ballots were found in the ladies bathrooms in the King County voter registrar's office. Gregoire still lost on the second recount. Yet more ballots were found (probably buried in the King County registrar's back yard). Gregoire still lost on the third recount. This charade went until finally enough ballots were found, or manufactured, for Gregoire to win on the fifth recount. She went on to serve a couple of terms as Washington State governor--or so I recall. All of these "extra" ballots were found in King County--where voter fraud and ballots growing like mushrooms in the dark are not a bug--but a feature.

steve uhr said...

if the dems are so skilled at voter fraud why didn't they win the senate in 2018 or the senate or house or presidency in 2016?

eric said...

Old Geezer, Gregoire won on the 3rd count of the ballots.

This happened before Minnesota started finding ballots in the trunk of cars to help comedians win close races.

FIDO said...

Because


a) Some States and Secretary of States provide sufficient oversight that they cannot indulge in such shenanigans


and/or

b) not every single Democrat is as morally bankrupt as they are in Broward County and Arizona.

But, yes, even if it is just a couple of bad apples, the entire party gets branded with this.

FIDO said...

Let them do this...and send the Federal Election Commission chock full of Republicans to audit the entire corrupt institution with a AG who WILL prosecute to the fullest extent of the law, with 3 pardons for the most verbose rats.

This will force the entire nation to do an electoral audit, PARTICULARLY Illinois, California and New York.

No charges brought...but public shaming, laws forced to change, hundreds of thousands of ineligible removed from polls...and lots and lots of Democrat tools being fired.


It is not so fanciful a prospect.

Yancey Ward said...

If all of this recounting were above board and honest- why did the counties claim all the votes were counted on election night but for provisionals? If you had hundreds of thousands of votes to count- why claim 100% early Wednesday morning? That is my problem with Arizona and Florida- Florida was called late Tuesday night because the counties themselves said they had counted 100% of the precincts and that they were finished- I literally watched the state county by county. And yet here we are today with Broward and Palm Beach County still counting while every other county seems to have had no more votes to count in numbers that matter. If the votes they are counting a legitimate, why have both counties refused to disclose what it is exactly they are doing, where the new ballots came from, and most importantly, why is it taking 3 damned days to do this- as a first impression, it appears that the counties don't want to declare a final number until they know exactly how many votes they need to defeat Scott and DeSantis.

The Democrats have already won the seat in Arizona- McSally suddenly lost a net 26,000 in margin with just the first 120,000 new votes counted- a margin much greater than she lost the particular counties according to the counts Tuesday night- exactly what I predicted would happen, and I think the reason is obvious at this point- it is fraud. Supposedly, the rest of Maricopa that hasn't been counted are election day ballots (still no explanation for why Maricopa declared its count 100% early Wednesday morning), so, statistically, McSally should finish ahead of Sinema in the remaining 345K votes- she ran much better than Sinema on votes made election day from what Maricopa reported Tuesday, but I again will predict that the percentages will be anomalous in favor of Sinema as were the vote dumps done this afternoon by Pima County. I think they race will be called for Sinema by tomorrow afternoon, and McSally will be pressured to concede by the media. The same is going to happen to Scott and DeSantis as soon as Broward "finds" enough votes.

This is how you start a hot civil war folks- shit like this done with no transparency or explanation.

Democrats are beta-testing voter fraud on a larger scale than ever before this Tuesday. If things go as hoped, we’ll know in few days whether Hillary will declare. The one thing that will keep her away is the prospect of losing.

In the 1976 Presidential election there was considerable vote fraud in Ohio (Cleveland, Cincinnati) and in Detroit (Wayne County)--all for Carter.

I know because I worked on ballot security and post-election investigations on behalf of the GOP. There were a lot lot lot of people registered at the address of the Cincinnati Municipal Parking Lot under names like Roosevelt Carter, Jerry Truman, etc. Just one example.

There were plenty of voters registered at vacant lots in Cleveland. And so forth and so on all over the place.

The Ford administration knew this--how do I know? I was in touch with two of President Ford's brothers, Tom Ford of Lansing and Dick Ford of Grand Rapids, and a bunch of other top Michigan GOP folks, etc. The Ford admin knew but they didn't want to fight it--they were afraid.

Great, huh?

I don't like Jim Acosta, and agree he should've lost his credentials long ago, but - when Guam's Catholic Church has just filed for bankruptcy because there's so many sex abuse cases against it - and I imagine how many lives those perverts have touched, and then I turn on the news, only to find they're talking about Jim Acosta defending his personal space, by impulsively touching a woman's arm, as a major aggression and topic of discussion - it boggles the mind.

Readering: Well, that's what the Dems wanted, nicht wahr? All the more reason to do the vote fraud investigation to end all vote fraud investigations. How about having Dr. Snipes go to jail over this?

Also, perhaps POTUS named Whitaker because he WANTS Whitaker as Acting AG, if only for a limited period of time, for a variety of reasons to which we're not privy.

"Two years and still not grown into job" seems untrue.

Matthew Sablan said...

Have the counties in Arizona and Florida at least told us how many votes they're counting yet, or is the number still in flux?

Matthew Sablan said...

"Lakeisha Williams, of Broward County, said she discovered the ballot box two days after Election Day at Miramar Elementary School — where it was apparently left behind by election workers."

-- If this isn't satire, then, sorry people whose votes those were: They don't get counted. The people who left it behind should face stiff penalties and questions, but those votes? Sorry. They don't count because we have no idea who else may have found them before Williams and tampered with them.

Sorry.

Matthew Sablan said...

"I don't understand why FL Republicans are not already in court over the broken election laws."

-- Because Republicans always want to win without taking on obvious cheating like this so that they don't have to deal with tons of news cycles about refusing to count votes and being for voter suppression. The right script for them to take is: Democrats and election workers should be for election regulation and oversight to ensure *boxes of ballots don't appear out of nowhere and undermine faith in elections.*

Matthew Sablan said...

"Its one thing to pick off a Senator when it doesn't change much, but here and now it is critical. "

-- Norm Coleman, in the Senate race for the 60th vote for healthcare, would like to have a word with you.

Matthew Sablan said...

Quote from an article about Arizona, found on Hot Air: "The suit alleges that the state’s county recorders don’t follow a uniform standard for allowing voters to address problems with their mail-in ballots, and that Maricopa and Pima counties improperly allow the fixes for up to five days after Election Day.

Lawyers who filed the suit say they’d be happy if Mahoney decided to order the state’s more rural counties to follow the same procedures, which would have the effect of expanding the vote count.

Currently, several other counties that lean Republican destroy mail ballots if voters don’t help verify their signatures before polls close on Election Day."

So, even if we end up allowing Republican districts to follow the same rules as the Democrat strongholds, it doesn't matter at this point any more, because by following the law, Republicans have shot themselves in the foot. It is always a bad idea to make following the rules more painful than not.

Civil War II would not involve blue and gray-clad armies marching and countermarching across the map, however. I would expect to see more people like James Hodgkinson directly targeting their political enemies. If the rule of law has broken down, if the electoral system is rigged to prevent redress at the ballot box, then only political violence is left if you see yourself, your family and friends threatened by the other side. As the mob in front of Tucker Carlson's house showed, everyone has a home address where they sleep at night. Senators and Congressmen, Supreme Court judges, even crooked Supervisors of Elections (I'm talking about you, Brenda Snipes of Broward County). And while the pawn-level people on both sides get great pleasure from fighting each other in the streets, it won't take long for someone to become the latter-day John Brown at Harper's Ferry. Then the shit really hits the fan.

In “Becoming,” (Michelle) Obama shares both pain and joy. She writes lovingly of her family and gives a detailed account of her courtship with her future husband, whom she met when both were at the Chicago law firm Sidley Austin LLP; she was initially his adviser. Secretaries claimed he was both brilliant and “cute,” although Michelle Obama was skeptical, writing that white people went “bonkers” any time you “put a suit” on a “half-intelligent black man.” She also thought his picture had a “whiff of geekiness.”

Interesting choice of words by Michelle. Which half of Barack is the intelligent half?

A report published to the country's parliament by a coalition of opposition parties said the annual rate had almost doubled since in the month since the most recent report was published in October...

The International Monetary Fund expects inflation to hit 1 million percent this year, with local economists expecting a further pickup in price rises as Christmas bonuses are handed out."

You guys should stop trying to be so ugly. You're already there.

Freeing slaves in the US was a huge issue from the founding that had roots in the enlightenment.

Interesting the US had to have a civil war, with a huge percentage of males of fighting age dead, to end slavery.

I believe we are the only nation to fight a civil war to end slavery.

Snarky comment:

So should the one drop rule be used for reparations?

Or use a percentage for payout amounts?

Are all with any African descended eligible?

What of those from the Caribbean? Their ancestors were often slaves.

Decendents of former slaves living in Liberia, Canada, etc?

Interesting the federal judge that stopped keystone is an Obama appointee.

Not mentioned in the articles I read about this.

It’s upsetting that the president that appointed a judge has that much relationship to theirs rulings.

And the decision happened after the election.

Not all blacks in the pre-Civil War US were slaves, regardless of what is taught today in schools.

As ugly as all the innercity violence?

if the dems are so skilled at voter fraud why didn't they win the senate in 2018 or the senate or house or presidency in 2016?

Overconfidence.

True, at a plantation I visited, the owner was Black. I can't remember which state that was in. I'm thinking Florida.

Would the owner be eligible for reparations if they were a former slave? Or descended from slaves.

Some Indians in the US were also treated as slaves. Are they eligible for reparations?

And originally Blacks, Whites, and others were treated as indentured servants. Basically slaves, but with an end date. How does work with reparations? Would Whites with ancestors who were indentured servants in the US be eligible for reparations?

No one is “stealing” any election you fools.

The fuck they aren't. It's the same, damn thing I personally witnessed in 2004 in Washington state.

But you don't care.

Seriously. Just how long do you think we're going to sit around and put up with this shit? Rules for all or rules for none.

Your choice.

See the Pigford settlement for your answer. The real goal, if those advocating for reparations could be honest.
A class action against the USDA for discriminating against African Americans. USDA settled out of court, admitting no fault for $50,000 per farmer. The Clinton USDA guestimated those affected numbered 2000. Up to date 94,000 farmers have filed claims...
