Most of us remember just 4 short years ago. Much of America, from pollsters and especially to the pundit class and Washington insiders, confidently predicted a win by Hillary Clinton. It was heresy, even mock-worthy, to suggest otherwise.But “otherwise” happened. Much of the left never accepted the results, and the Obama-Biden Administration sicced federal law […]

Are We Watching Failure Theater? Because Team Trump’s Actions Don’t Make Any Sense.

 

Maybe Giuliani, Murtaugh, Stepien, etc. have some different, better course of action planned that I cannot begin to guess at, but otherwise what’s happening (or not happening) isn’t making any sense.

Let’s be honest; everyone knew from the onset that no judge is going to set aside the results, or delay the certification of the election, and no state legislature is going to send a different slate of electors without incontrovertible evidence of election fraud in sufficient volume to change the outcome.

People don’t like politics. They like when politicians do things for them but hate knowing how it was done. We all know the sausage metaphor.  If we were able to make Trump simply an orange yet silent silhouette would he have been easily reelected based off a growing economy, a successful foreign policy shift and […]

Since Trump’s 2016 election (and perhaps earlier), the assumption here in Chicago is that everyone is liberal and on board to rip Trump to shreds or at the very least, listen indulgently while someone else does it for you. That shredding session might take place in an Uber, the grocery store, while picking up your […]

A Primer on Wisconsin Election Corruption

 

I posted this as a comment in another thread, but this article by Dan O’Donnell, a Milwaukee WISN 1130AM talk show host, lawyer, and conservative columnist (bio info thanks to @WI Con) is worth reading and sharing.

Published Thursday, it provides a detailed background on the election law violations and controversies in Wisconsin during this past year leading up to the presidential election:

Is anybody else struck by the seemingly huge increase in turnout? Not just mail-in but election day voting too? Even in deep red Trump country, I’m surprised at the turnout given that Missouri is all but a lock for Trump. My Facebook feed is filled up with pictures of long lines and “I was xxx […]

OK, this is where I am at this moment with the Nov. 3rd election. Yes, very close, and here are 10 observations and explanations. In summary, Trump should win with a 275 vote Electoral College win despite losing, again, the national popular vote. But watch North Carolina, Michigan, and Arizona. 1) If it’s not close, […]

I am not an attorney. I don’t play one on TV, nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn last night. But I do pay some attention to election law. Experience in 35 congressional campaigns (House and Senate) over 25 years will focus the mind. I was even nominated by President Clinton to a GOP […]

New Website Doxxes Trump Campaign Contributors

 

Allow me to introduce you to a cute little website: Donald Trump Watch.

It’s a website designed to name, shame, intimidate, and target those who have made reportable contributions to the official Trump-Pence campaign account.
I’m on that website.
As a federal campaign election veteran, I knew full well when I made my two contributions that they would be publicly disclosed. I knew the risk that I was taking in doing so. I was also smart enough to list a Post Office Box as my address.
There are no known such sites designed to name, shame, and target Biden supporters, nor should there be. But please disclose it to me if you find one. I am not interested in targeting Biden supporters. This is a free country (for now, at least), and the Supreme Court has long determined that political contributions are speech protected by the First Amendment.

It doesn’t take a Ph.D. to realize the intent. We have seen reports from Kansas City and New Hampshire of warning letters being left on homes of people who have been identified as Trump supporters and warned to make sure their home insurance policies protect them against fire damage.

This may be a story worth paying attention to after the elections. Maybe even now. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is not just the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee but also on the ballot for reelection. His opponent, Jaime Harrison, has raised a whopping $57 million in campaign contributions, dwarfing Graham’s fundraising. The same is […]

When your morale is at the bottom of the well, few blessings are better than a cheery next door neighbor who actually gives a damn about you. I spotted mine in his driveway today, and we exchanged pleasantries as we always do.  He told me the weather was supposed to be in the 70’s this […]

Hi, kids! Yesterday, during our class on political corruption, we discussed “pay to play.” Today, we’re going to talk about the four ways to respond to accusations of wrong-doing, especially in politics or legal circles (they often overlap). And we’ll use the initial story about Hunter Biden’s “pay to play” foreign influence scandal as our […]

Did The Debate Commission Provide the Election’s ‘Galvanizing Moment?’

 

If you had the so-called Commission on Presidential Debates framing the issue that voters may well take with them into the voting booth on November 3 (or before) on your 2020 election bingo card, congratulations. Who thought an obscure, 33-year-old nonprofit organization might provide the potential galvanizing moment just weeks before Election Day?

As former GOP presidential nominee and ex-Senate Republican Leader Bob Dole has confirmed, the Commission is in the tank for Joe Biden, or at least against President Trump.

Ep. 262 – Senator Ted Cruz joins Whiskey Politics with Dave Sussman for a special in-depth, long-form discussion on the critical issues heading into Election 2020; SCOTUS, Spygate, did the Senator say the Election may be a ‘Bloodbath’ for Republicans? Senator Cruz also discusses his incredible new book One Vote Away detailing the most pivotal Supreme Court cases of our time, and will Ted Cruz accept a SCOTUS nomination from President Donald Trump?

I am tired of seeing this graphic on my Facebook page. I find it weird that many public officials and organizations consistently push “vote by mail” but also fret that many votes will not be counted because of errors by the postal service (1-3 percent of ballots are lost in the mail) but especially by […]
