Thought for the day

"The Elderly are useless eaters." -- Henry Kissinger, Quoted in the book "The Final Days".

We have no idea if any of these were ballot harvesting and even if we knew, how could you identify what ballots they dropped in and separate them? The point is you can’t! This is meant to show how easy it is to dump ballots in the box that don’t belong to you or your immediate family.

 

Republican candidate Kari Lake is calling for a partial do-over in Arizona’s governor election. It’s the most high-profile dispute yet to emerge in a midterm cycle that handed defeats to Lake and other candidates endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

The Democrat strategy of using mail-in ballots to vote played a pivotal role in last week’s election results. Pennsylvania Republicans are talking amongst themselves about how to react in the next election. Republicans have two views: get rid of mail-in voting—which seems unlikely with more elected Democrats in power—or learn how Democrats got an avalanche of mail-in votes and employ the same strategy.

If the 2022 midterm election taught Americans anything, it’s that every vote counts.

That lesson comes after many political races have come down to only a handful of votes or fewer — and now another Democrat has eeked out a victory after a recount.

Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake does not plan to go quietly into the night, at least not until her legal options are explored.

As of this writing, less than 17,000 votes separate Lake and Democrat candidate Katie Hobbs, which is .06 percent of the votes cast with ballots still being counted.

An automatic recount is triggered at when the difference is .05 percent or less.

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) appears to be the front-runner to replace Rep. Nancy Pelosi (R-CA) as House Democrat leader, even though he is an election denier.

As a lawyer from central Brooklyn, Jeffries is a self-described far-left Democrat who appears to be angling behind the scenes to win the Democrat House leadership position. He first assumed office in 2013 and has served as the chair of the House Democrat Caucus since 2019.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors was confronted by an angry activist over its poor handling of the week-long midterm election vote count.

“Once again, the eyes of the world are upon Maricopa County for another botched election. Am I here to accuse you of stealing the vote? Heavens no, because that would make me a terrorist, wouldn’t it?” Matt Baker told the board on Wednesday.
