Pennsylvania legislators formerly introduces bill to dispute 2020 election count

 Epoch Times: Republican state lawmakers in Pennsylvania on Monday introduced a resolution to dispute the results of the 2020 election. The text of the resolution, first previewed in a memo on Nov. 27, states that the executive and judicial branches of the Keystone State’s government usurped the legislature’s constitutional power to set the rules of the election. “Officials in the Executive and Judicial Branches of the Commonwealth infringed upon the General Assembly’s authority under the Constitution of the United States by unlawfully changing the rules governing the November 3, 2020, election in the Commonwealth,” the resolution ( pdf ) states. The resolution calls on the secretary of the Commonwealth to withdraw the “premature certification ” of the presidential election and delay certifying other races, declares the 2020 election to be in dispute, and urges the U.S. Congress “to declare the selection of presidential electors in this Commonwealth to be in dispute.” Members of the Pe

It is hard to see Georgia voting for radical leftist senators

 Red States: Last week, President Trump  tweeted out  his support for incumbent Georgia Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue and encouraged his supporters to  ignore calls  to boycott the January 5th Senate runoff races where Loeffler and Perdue will face off against Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff respectively. “…we must get out and help David and Kelly, two GREAT people. Otherwise we are playing right into the hands of some very sick people,” Trump  said  Friday. Donald Trump, Jr. tweeted out a  similar message  earlier in the week. Though Trump plans to visit the state on December 5th to help motivate voters to get to the polls and show their support, Republicans received an unexpected gift earlier today from Ossoff during an interview he did with CNN’s Dana Bash. Towards the end of the segment, Bash asked the failed Congressional candidate his thoughts on Sen. Bernie Sanders’ endorsement of his campaign, which Sanders tweeted out on Saturday: After Ossoff de

Trump has majority support in GOP for 2024 run

 Stacy Lennox: While the 2020 election continues to be litigated, some outlets are looking ahead to 2024. While Democrats and some in the GOP establishment have been hoping a Trump defeat would return the GOP to “normal,” don’t count on it.  According to a  Politico- Morning Consult Poll , if the 2024 Republican primary were held today, 53% of Republicans would vote for Donald Trump. Another 12% would vote for Vice President Mike Pence. This is more than the plurality with which Trump won the primary in 2016. This should send a message to the party leadership that they would be foolish to ignore, but not because one should assume Donald Trump would run in 2024 or that these numbers aren’t likely to move significantly as interested candidates work to raise their profiles. It seems evident that there is 65% percent approval among the GOP for the agenda this administration has pursued. Vice President Pence has been a staunch supporter of the president’s agenda, and this is clear from his

Obama's stupid deal with Iran has been a disaster

  Washington Post: Debate shifts from whether Israel killed Iran’s top nuclear scientist to why There is little doubt that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sees the crippling of Iran’s advancing nuclear capacity as Israel’s top security priority. It was easily one of the dumbest deals in history and it left the potential victims of Iranian aggression with little room to maneuver while they waited for nuclear annihilation by the Islamic religious bigots who rule Iran.  The only good thing that has come out of this awful deal is that it has led to other potential victims of Iran siding with Israel as a nuclear power that can help defend them. It is clear that Obama and Kerry did not comprehend how dangerous their deal was to others in the region.  The deal also failed to restrict Iran's push for missile technology that would endanger not only those in the region but also the US. When sentient people are faced with a threat like Iran they are going to act as a matter of self-

Biden's illegitimate vote count

  NY Times: Most Republicans Say They Doubt the Election. How Many Really Mean It? Survey research tries to sort out the typical partisan reactions to a loss from an erosion of trust that may be more lasting. In certain states, Democrats apparently cheated to win. They are accused of using Biden only votes in several  jurisdictions and then running them through the scanner multiple times. There has been no explanation for the  demographic of Biden only voters and why they happened in the states that flipped to Biden during the night . The media also played a role by censoring information about obvious corruption by Biden and his family.   They monetized his office to enrich the family.  A significant number of people has said if they had known  about the corruption, they would not have voted for him.  The media was colluding with Biden to suppress the  facts.

More on the election and the alleged German server raid

 Andrea Widberg: On Friday, a retired top Air Force intelligence analyst stated with certainty during an interview that special forces had secured a CIA-run facility in Germany that had computers showing election manipulation. If this report is real, we are witnessing the biggest coup attempt, sabotage, and treason in American history. No matter what, though, because this report is out there and comes from serious people, it deserves serious investigation. I have no idea whether this raid happened. Its having taken place, however, is consistent with  my ruminations  about Trump’s peculiarly-timed shake-up at the Pentagon: Firing defense secretary Mark Esper and replace him with Christopher Miller, a special forces man; moving special forces into their own command, rather than having them function as subsets of other military branches; and firing potentially disloyal members of the civilian Defense Policy Board. These actions indicated that Trump was clearing the decks for something big

US most powerful sniper rifle designed and made in a garage

 1945: Fact: The most powerful sniper rifle in the U.S. Military was designed in a garage — and handmade. The Origins The story of the M82 begins with Ronnie Barrett. Barrett, a photographer with no formal gunsmith training or experience, is said to have been inspired to design and build the M82 .50 caliber rifle while photographing a river patrol boat similar to the type used by American forces during the Vietnam war. In one of the resulting photographs, a .50 caliber machine gun is prominently silhouetted. Realizing that there was not a rifle chambered in the .50 caliber cartridge, Ronnie got started . The original design was drawn up on Barrett’s dining room table, and from the resulting blueprints, the original Barrett .50 rifle was built in a gravel floor garage from hand-machined parts. But despite the humble beginnings, the rifle was an immediate success. The large rifle was completed just in time for the Gulf War, where it made its combat debut with the United States Marine C

Supreme Court to hear case on Trump's exclusion of illegals in the census account for purposes of reapportionment.

 Washington Free Beacon: The Trump administration will press its bid to exclude illegal aliens from the population baseline for awarding House seats on Monday in the Supreme Court, a move that would shift political clout away from states with large undocumented populations. President Donald Trump's July order to exclude illegal aliens from the apportionment could be one of his most consequential acts in office. States like California, where approximately 6 percent of the population is undocumented, will lose out on congressional seats and untold millions in federal funds if the administration prevails. Blue states losing even a handful of seats would make the House's thin Democratic majority even more precarious. Congressional analysts suggest Democrats will lose the House in 2022 on the basis of reapportionment alone, since red states with growing populations are expected to gain seats. But right-leaning states like Florida and Texas could each pick up one seat fewer as a re

Democrats use of illegal votes to disenfranchise legal voters

 Clarice Feldman: A few days ago, I forwarded a note about the proposed joint resolutions of the Pennsylvania legislators to refuse to certify the results of a patently fraudulent election. I got a response which certainly anticipates the Democrats’ talking points: “Disenfranchising voters is not what conservatives do.” Of course not. It's what Democrats do by diluting their votes time and again with illegal and nonexistent voters. Refusing to recognize fraud by removing such votes from the tally at certification time is what conservatives should do. To fail to do so is to ensure that we will never have free, honest elections again and legal voters voting in accord with relevant laws will be disenfranchised while illegal and nonexistent voters will win.   Scott Adams observes correctly  that when people lose confidence in the regularity of elections, the orderly respect for government  and the willingness to comply with it will end.  To fail to do so, as well, means the legislature

Democrats move to the left behind Hispanic move to GOP

Bobby Jindal and Wes Anderson: Democratic strategists were euphoric after President Barack Obama’s historic victory in 2008. They had helped elect an African American president and believed they were witnessing a fundamental change in their coalition. The Democrats had replaced the culturally conservative working-class White voters who helped elect President Bill Clinton with minorities, millennials and socially liberal White voters. These rapidly growing demographic groups supposedly gave Democrats a permanent majority. After Obama’s reelection in 2012, the Republican National Committee commissioned an “autopsy” to supposedly explain how the party could appeal to an increasingly diverse nation. The Establishment responded by advocating joining Democrats in espousing identity politics. HISPANIC DEMOCRAT SAYS FAR-LEFT SOCIALIST MESSAGE IS 'KILLING US': REPORT Elites in both parties saw the election of President Trump as a temporary setback fueled by the last gasps of a shrink

Preservation order finally issued against those in possession of Dominion voting devices in Georgia

  Epoch Times: Judge Blocks, Unblocks, Then Blocks Georgia From Wiping or Resetting Election Machines     In a third order issued late Sunday night, a federal judge overseeing Sidney Powell’s Georgia lawsuit granted a  temporary restraining order  on elections officials in Cobb, Gwinnett, and Cherokee counties, to prohibit them from allowing “alteration, destruction, or erasure of any software or data on any Dominion voting machines” used in the 2020 elections. The judge’s decision allowed Powell to amend a previous complaint to include the counties in possession of the voting machines. ... There is much more.  The rush to destroy evidence was apparently related to a machine recount.

Iran responds to death of nuclear expert with blackmail threats

 Tom Rogan: On Sunday, Iran responded aggressively to  Israel's assassination on Friday  of its top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. The Iranian parliament passed legislation designed to blackmail Europe and threaten the incoming Biden administration with Iran's near-term rush to a nuclear weapons capability. Indicating Tehran's desire to avoid precipitating Trump administration military action, however, the legislation gives Iran's nuclear energy agency two months, or a timeline reaching past Jan. 20, 2021, to enact the mandated actions. Still, what's on the table is highly significant. The parliament says that Tehran's nuclear agency must enrich uranium to a concentration level of 20%, produce at least 500 kg of enriched material per month, and restrict international inspector access. It also requires further deviations from the 2015 nuclear accord if Europe does not restore full economic engagement with Tehran within three months. This is a clear signal

FBI to investigate people who voted more than once in 2020 election

 Epoch Times: The  FBI  has reached out to an  election  integrity researcher for evidence of potential crimes in the 2020 election, according to the researcher, who is also a former Trump campaign official. The evidence was collected by the Voter Integrity Project (VIP) led by Matt Braynard, former data and strategy director for President Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign. “The @FBI has proactively and directly requested from me the VIP findings that indicates illegal ballots,” Braynard said  in a Nov. 29 tweet . “By Tuesday, we will have delivered to the agency all of our data, including names, addresses, phone numbers, etc.” His account was backed by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, a conservative nonprofit that says it retained Braynard to conduct the work. “We’ve learned that Mr. Braynard was contacted by FBI Special Agent Young Oh of the FBI Los Angeles Field Office seeking our data. Mr. Braynard is fully cooperating with this request and we fully support him,”

Biden's rush to get back in Obama's terrible Iran deal is more evidence of dementia

 Washington Examiner Editorial: Why on Earth would the United States rush to rejoin the unreformed 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or the Iran nuclear accord? We have two observations here. First, there should be no doubt that the Iran nuclear deal was an unmitigated failure. One key failing is the accord’s inability to restrain Iran’s rampant research of ballistic missile technology. Cloaked under the absurd pretense of civilian satellite research, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has spent the past five years steadily improving its means to deliver a nuclear warhead. Considering the severe economic pressure Tehran is suffering, the fact that it continues to throw hundreds of millions of dollars at its ballistic missile program is good evidence for the regime’s desire to be able to wage nuclear war. Former Secretary of State John Kerry’s diplomatic masterpiece also retains totally inadequate inspection protocols. Iran has a 30 days’ notice grace period before it must giv

Small nuclear reactors in the works to create electricity

 Washington Examiner: Top energy officials in the Trump administration said they have positioned the United States to deploy small nuclear reactors this decade and enabled companies to compete in export markets dominated by China and Russia. Rita Baranwal, who leads the Energy Department’s nuclear energy office, and Ted Garrish, the agency’s top international affairs official, say the U.S. nuclear industry, plagued recently by cost overruns and early plant retirements, is in a better place than four years ago. “I am very confident the work we have done in the last several years has laid the necessary groundwork to deploy and demonstrate [small] reactors,” Baranwal told the Washington Examiner in a joint interview with Garrish. “Nuclear absolutely has to play a role in decarbonization efforts. We are really excited to be at a juncture to develop these technologies to be part of that effort.” Baranwal and Garrish expect President-elect Joe Biden to look to build upon the Trump administ

The failure of the Democrat unity message

 Roger Kimball: ... And that is my point. The strongest argument for Biden’s victory is not the vote tally. It is the monolithic narrative, pumped up like one of those inflatable play castles at a child’s birthday party. With every passing day, that narrative becomes more boisterous, more assertive, more uncompromising. It is a collective primal scream, emitted with eyes shut and ears plugged. There is a problem for the narrative, however. Or more to the point, there are 73 million problems. A major concession in the Biden-won-give-it-up-narrative is revealed by the hawkers of the “Unity Now” meme. Let us all come together as one nation, under Joe, and reassert the American normality that has been so sorely missing under the despotic reign of Donald Trump. No. No, that’s not going to fly, and not only because of the snarling viciousness that attended Donald Trump and his entire administration from the moment he was elected until now. Granted, Democrats are masters of hypocrisy. I will

The hit squad that killed Iran's nuclear weapons expert was huge

 NY Post: The assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was carried out by a highly trained hit squad of 62 people — pouncing in six vehicles after the local power supply was cut, according to local reports. The killers — who Iranian officials have insisted were sent by Israel — included a team of 50 giving “logistical support” to the dirty dozen who carried out the actual ambush Friday, sources told leading Iranian journalist Mohamad Ahwaze. All involved had “entered special training courses, as well as security and intelligence services abroad,” Ahwaze tweeted, as translated by ELINT News . “The team knew exactly the date and course of the movement of the Fakhrizadeh protection convoy in the smallest details,” Ahwaze’s sources told him, allowing them to cut the scientist off as he went to his private villa in Absard. Shortly before Fakhrizadeh drove through their ambush site, the team “cut off the electricity completely from this area” to slow reports of their a

Shia terrorist regime in Iran getting a taste of its own medicine

  NY Times: Brazen Killings Expose Iran’s Vulnerabilities as It Struggles to Respond After suffering a string of audacious attacks, Tehran faces an agonizing choice: embracing hard-liner demands for swift retaliation, or trying to make a fresh start with the Biden administration. Iran has been killing people all over the world who it deems to be enemies of their hope for imposing their radical vision for Shia Islam to dominate the world.  It has made no secret of its intent to destroy the whole state of Israel and to eventually attack the US.  I suspect that if it would drop those goals and agree to live in peace with others, it should not be suffering any attacks.  If the Biden administration makes the same mistakes as the Obama administration the attacks against Iran are likely to intensify.

Why would anyone inside the US fear a border wall?

  NY Times: A Rush to Expand the Border Wall That Many Fear Is Here to Stay Despite the president-elect’s vow to halt the project, the Trump administration is expanding the wall at a breakneck pace. Actually, only Democrat politicians fear a border wall because it blocks their project to import voters who will support their wacky agenda.  They also use illegals as a means for stealing House seats.  Without illegal sin the census they would lose seats in places like California.  That is what they really fear.  Without illegals Democrats would likely lose the chance to control the House and promote the evils of liberalism.

Biden's threat to renew Obama's bad deal probably led to killing of Iran nuclear weapons guy

  NY Times: Assassination in Iran Could Limit Biden’s Options. Was That the Goal? The killing of Iran’s top nuclear scientist is likely to impede the country’s military ambitions. Its real purpose may have been to prevent the president-elect from resuming diplomacy with Tehran. Biden must be among the few people in the world who thinks the Iran deal is worth salvaging. Certainly, no one else in the Middle East thinks it is. Obama and the Euros who backed this terrible deal never made a case for it that was persuasive.  The people most at risk if Iran gets nuclear weapons were never persuaded that a deal that put Iran on the glide path to nuclear weapons was worth the risks.  The countries that the Islamic religious bigots who rule Iran have threatened to destroy have good reason to believe them and respond accordingly.

Masculinity an important factor to survival on the battle field

 Michael Walsh: Heroism — the willingness to put your life on the line for family, tribe, duty, honor, country and God in the face of the greatest possible adversity — used to be considered one of the foremost masculine virtues. Indeed, the history of western civilization from the ancient Greeks to the recent present has been the history of heroism as well: the last stands at Thermopylae, Masada, the Swiss Guard at the Vatican in 1527, the Alamo, Khartoum, and Stalingrad are still names to conjure with, learn from, and celebrate. Indeed, just 70 years ago this week, the First Marine Division fought its way into the pages of history with their gallant stand at the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. In temperatures as low as minus-30 degrees, the Marines held off some 100,000 Chinese attackers and fought their way in hellish conditions back to the allied lines. Today, however, we live in a decidedly unheroic age, one in which the traditional masculine attributes of courage, physical streng
