Join Jim and Greg as they discuss the stunning hypocrisy of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and her husband and other Democratic governors over Memorial Day weekend. Greg also shares a very disturbing story about voting by mail in his home state. They also shudder as President Trump spend time on Twitter trying to implicate MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough in the death of a congressional intern nearly 20 years ago. And they react to economic officials from the Clinton and Obama administrations admit they are terrified that the economy could be rebounding by Election Day.

    Just great. Michigan is going to replace Nevada, isn’t it? “Way to go, Michigan. Way to go!”

    You’re missing a lot of detail to the Pritzker story. All but one of the contractors working on Pritzker’s horse farm in Kenosha, Wisconsin drove up from Illinois to work there, and the work is ongoing. (News story from the Fox 32 affilliate here – one quibble with their reporting: the Wisconsin State Supreme Court is not “Republican”. They’re elected in non-partisan elections. Striking down Governor Evers’s unconstitutional lockdown order was a victory for the separation of powers, the rule of law, and individual liberty.) In addition to his wife and children flying down to their property in Florida when Pritzker had (and still has) an avoid non-essential travel order in place, this latest example further illustrates his “lockdown for thee, but not for me” hypocrisy. But hey, I’d want to escape an oppressively locked-down state too. Hence why so many FIBs left Illinois for Lake Geneva, Wisconsin and other places north of the Illinois border this past Memorial Day weekend.

    As the old Wisconsin tourism slogan and popular bumper sticker goes: “Escape to Wisconsin!”

    Whitmer knows Munson in Traverse City was never overwhelmed, not even close. Stuff for me, and not for thee. I did read her husband was not belligerent, and it seems just a pretty dumb thing to do. She’s killing the state without his help.

    “Greg also shares a very disturbing story about voting by mail in his home state.”

    To whit, he was sent a mail ballot application even though he hasn’t voted in Michigan since 1998.

    In other words, Trump has a point, about vote-by-mail. Admitting that would have been the large-minded move for the guys.

    Point #2: Multiple voting is difficult if you have to physically travel from poll to poll and stand in line over and over again. It’s another matter if it’s just a trip to the post office with a bunch of mail ballots.

    Point #3: I never hear anyone point out that a mail ballot is not a secret ballot. There is no way of knowing who actually filled it out, or whether coercion or pressure was involved. (Expect lots of Democrat votes from nursing homes.)

    And cemeteries, and razed bujildings, and buildings that never existed to start with… All of which happens now too, but it will get far worse.

    In those latter cases, it is at least possible to check if the addresses are real or not. But any questions about voting from nursing homes will be answered by charges the Republicans are trying to steal the voting rights of senior citizens.

    N.B.: After the 2000 Presidential election in Florida, a man noted that his father had submitted an absentee ballot from his nursing home, even though he could no longer recognize his own children. The nursing home workers union supported the Democrats; but the Democrats insisted that’s not proof the vote went for Al Gore.

    Only after the fact, really, when it’s too late. They get back vote registration confirmations that were undeliverable for one reason or another, but there’s no way to determine which ballot was cast by each “invalid” voter. If they even bothered to try, which they don’t.

    Remember, the Democrats and their media allies constantly insist voter fraud is insignificant; “not widespread” is the talking point. Hard numbers to show it is widespread are useful.

    Which is exactly why they refuse to gather hard numbers.
