Longtime conservative radio host Larry Elder has raised almost $4.5 million in the first 19 days of his campaign to replace Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom in a special recall election on September 14. “The fundraising numbers are tallied from July 12, 2021,More
We are barely past the 2020 election and already Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer are plotting to steal the 2024 election.
And they have no problem admitting it.
Here is Pelosi, her appearance on 60 Minutes written up by The Washington Examiner, bold print for emphasis supplied:
“In a 60 Minutes interview on Sunday, Lesley Stahl asked Pelosi a question by raising the prospect that ‘after all of this, there’s no punishment, no consequence, and he could run again for president.’
Pelosi acknowledged the possibility, saying, ‘And that’s one of the motivations that people have for advocating for impeachment.’”
And here is Schumer, as headlined in The Washington Examiner:
Schumer: Trump must be blocked from running for president again
The Schumer story says this:
“Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said the Senate must convict President Trump of an impeachment charge in order to bar him using the prospect of a 2024 campaign to “poison the public arena” for the new Democratic White House and Congress.
‘After what he has done, the consequences of which we were all witness to, Donald Trump should not be eligible to run for office ever again,’ the New York Democrat said Tuesday.
Schumer made clear during his floor speech Tuesday that the goal of an impeachment trial is to stop Trump from seeking office in 2024.”
In an appearance on Mark Levin’s Fox show Life, Liberty and Levin, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley effectively answered Schumer by saying this, as reported over at Newsmax:
“Democrats are seizing the Republicans’ Electoral College objections and the storming of the Capitol, using the ‘lie’ to grab ‘power,’ according to Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., on Sunday.
…Democrats are twisting the reasonable concerns of election fraud and the constitutional objection of the Electoral College certification, he continued.
‘What the liberals have said is, ‘Because you did that, you effectively incited violence [Jan. 6],’ Hawley told host Mark Levin. ‘That’s a lie. They know it’s a lie. They said, ‘He wanted to overturn the election.’ That’s a lie. They know that it’s a lie.’
‘They said that you know, ‘It’s equivalent to a violent insurrection, the objection you raised.’ That’s a lie. They know that it’s a lie.’
‘I think what we’re seeing now is an attempt by the left to lie about our motivations, to lie about our actions in order to grab power.’”
Hawley has it exactly right.
Pelosi and Schumer are pushing the stark, deliberate lie that the former President, Hawley and Senator Ted Cruz incited the Capitol riot. And they are using that lie in an attempt to steal the 2024 election by denying the American people their right to vote for the candidate of their choice. Which is to say, denying Trump his constitutional right to run again if he so chooses.
This is, as Senator Hawley has said, nothing but a blatant power grab. An attempt to stay in power in perpetuity by rigging an election so that a popular candidate is denied his right to run for president if he so chooses.
The real question here should be when will the House and Senate censure Pelosi and Schumer for their bold attempt to steal an election by rigging it – not to mention doing it a full three years before the election has even begun.
After protesters forced entry into the United States Capitol on Wednesday, Democratic D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser gave a scathing public speech. Condemning the protesters, she said they would be held accountable. Bowser also noted that she had asked for reinforcement from law enforcement agencies including police from both Virginia and Maryland.
First off, asking for law enforcement assistance is a far cry from what we have heard from Democrats over the last year who are usually expressing disdain and calling for defunding the police. Not this time. Turns out, even Democrats turn to police when wanting to protect their own agendas.
But Bowser’s hypocrisy is just one level of her deception. People around the world are asking “how could security have been so subpar as to allow a breach of the U.S. Capitol?” Here is at least one answer for you: Bowser actually rejected assistance before the riots took place.
While Bowser is crying, “what happened yesterday is textbook terrorism” it turns out “on Tuesday, Bowser preemptively rebuffed federal reinforcements in a public letter to the Department of Justice, explaining that ‘the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) is prepared for this week’s First Amendment activities” reported National Review.
Bowser actively went out of her way, writing a public letter, which explains the lack of backup. Nonetheless, the facts are not stopping liberals and anti-Trumpers from turning the catastrophe into a racial issue stating the incident occurred because it was “white supremacists helping white supremacists.” Bowser, a Black female, said the MPD was “prepared.”
Again, on Tuesday, long before the demonstration began, Bowser wrote: “The protection of persons and property is our utmost concern and responsibility. MPD is well trained and prepared to lead the law enforcement, coordination and response.” The letter was addressed to Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy and active Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller.
For those who are still unconvinced at the Mayor’s participation in the security failure, look at her tweet from January 5 alongside her letter: “To be clear, the District of Columbia is not requesting other federal law enforcement personnel and discourages any additional deployment without immediate notification to, and consultation with, MPD if such plans are underway.”
Fast forward less than 48 hours and the Mayor sings a different tune, saying she did not have jurisdiction to send police or National Guard to Capitol Hill. “I think a more robust presence on the ground” would have maintained order, she explained.
A Pennsylvania state official revealed this week it is still uncertain how many people voted in the November elections. One of the most lucrative battleground states which have heeded multiple lawsuits and voter fraud accusations, we appear to be no closer to definitive answers.
Just the News reports, “Pennsylvania was thrown back into the limelight this week when a group of Republican state representatives claimed to have found ‘troubling discrepancies between the numbers of total votes counted and total number of voters who voted’ in the state last month.”
A press release announcing the findings stated, “a comparison of official county election results to the total number of voters who voted on November 3, 2020, as recorded by the Department of State shows that 6,962,607 total ballots were reported as being cast.”
However, “DoS/SURE system records indicate that only 6,760,230 total voters actually voted” added the release. The SURE system stand’s for Pennsylvania’s Statewide Uniform Registry of Electors, the state’s registration database, which is run by the state’s Bureau of Election Security and Technology, administered by the Department of State.
Pennsylvania’s State Department disputed the representatives’ allegations of mismatched vote totals according to spokeswoman Wanda Murren. Oddly, Murren stated to Just the News, “at this time…there are still a few counties that have not completed uploading their vote histories to the SURE system. These counties, which include Philadelphia, Allegheny, Butler and Cambria, would account for a significant number of voters.”
When asked to clarify how the Department could certify the election without knowing the total number of voters, Murren replied: “Each county certifies the vote totals for each individual candidate. The secretary’s certification is based on the certifications from each county. In Pennsylvania, it is the counties that are authorized to administer all aspects of elections – from voter registration to canvassing the ballots.”
With answers and “clarification” like Murren’s, no wonder we are all left clueless.
As we head into the new year, it’s almost comical to look back at the left-wing media coverage in 2020. Jeffrey Lord appeared on The Ingraham Angle to review the worst offenders in the media over the past year.
“I think there is a serious rot that has come to underlie the national, liberal media, mainstream media. All of their standards are just gone with the wind. They’re open partisans and this, in a way, maybe one of President Trump’s biggest services is to out them,” he said.
“Decades ago, there were stories in the Kennedy days, of all days, I’ve gone back and read my history of reporters cheering for John F. Kennedy in the 1960 election and saying they all felt they were soldiers on the way to the new frontier with JFK,” he added.
“The only difference now is, it’s out there. Everybody sees it. The president has helped out them. There is a real rot there and I think they’ve got to do some serious soul searching about this. Not that that’ll happen.”
Perhaps one of the worst media offenses of 2020 was when the liberal media honored a top terrorist just because Trump killed him.
“Let’s just remember when the media thought it was a good thing when the president was Barack Obama and he took out Osama bin Laden and frankly, good for him. They all cheered him on,” Lord said.
“This is just so blatant at this point. If Donald Trump does something, it’s bad. If anybody else does something it’s good and it’s shameful and it, frankly, is damaging their own reputation,” he continued.
Another was when the media failed to admit the George Floyd protests throughout the summer were anything but peaceful.
“What’s always interesting to me is, they don’t care that you can see it,” Lord said. “It’s right there. It’s happening right in front of your own eyes, and yet they’re going to try and tell you that up is down and down is up, and the American people just no longer believe it. They no longer have credibility and seriously, that’s a big problem in the democratic society.”
The media even pushed the narrative that USPS was going to rig the election in Trump’s favor.
“They get to say anything they want and they’re never going to be held to account for it,” Lord urged. “Frankly, Lisa, that’s why conservative media – Rush Limbaugh, Laura, Sean, etc. – came to be, precisely because of this and that’s why they have an audience.”
It is no secret that the liberal media made the Hunter Biden story disappear. They refused to cover anything that would put their president-elect, Joe Biden, in a bad light. Lord warned that the media is playing games with our national security.
“Part of that Hunter Biden story was they want to ignore any and all ties of the Biden’s to China. This is going to have a serious impact if, in fact, Joe Biden takes the oath of office as president. What is going to be our China policy? What is our relationship here? They’re going to play hide the ball on this. This is not acceptable. This is the left-wing media machine playing hide and seek with national security. It’s not good.”
During the 2020 election, the media threw Biden softball after softball – asking easy, pre-selected questions.
“My favorite was, ‘do you like vanilla or chocolate ice cream?’ I’m not making that up. I mean, God Bless Peter Doocy from Fox out there trying to ask serious questions and they don’t want to do it,” he said.
“We’re going to be going through this for the next four years and the media itself is going to have to be held to account. As I say, there is a serious rot underlying the media when it acts like this and it’s not good,” he warned.
Progressives wanted a Democrat in office, and they’re already complaining about Biden’s decisions. Biden is utilizing officials with corporate ties to help him make the transition into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The Daily Caller reports “Biden’s advisory team helping his transition with White House’s Office of Management and Budget” includes “executives from Amazon Web Services, Lyft” and Airbnb.
Progressive groups including Demand Justice, Public Citizen and the Sunrise Movement urged Biden to “decline to nominate or hire corporate executives, lobbyists and prominent corporate consultants.” The demand was made in a letter in November, making reference to the staunch opposition Democrats’ had over similar nominations made by President Trump.
In the letter, the progressive groups wrote: “The [corporate-government] revolving door limits the trust Americans have in government and have time and time again led to bad policy outcomes.” Therefore, they wrote, “we urge you to take advantage of this unique and historic moment in American history to shut the revolving door and rebuild that trust.”
One of Biden’s top White House advisors and longtime aide has “strong ties to Amazon and its federal lobbying efforts” reports DCNF. The company also “recently hired his brother, Jeff Ricchetti, to lobby on COVID-19 and the implementation of the CARES Act.”
Richetti co-founded the lobbying firm Richetti Inc. after working as deputy chief of staff under President Bill Clinton. Biden’s incoming chief of staff Ron Klain worked with “AOL founder Steve Case in venture capital and warned about the impact government regulation can have on technology start-ups in a 2015 op-ed.”
Biden pulled a fast one over on the progressive groups and voters who believed he would keep corporate money out of politics. DCNF reports, “despite the ties between his developing administration and corporations, Biden took an aggressive stance against lobbyists and special interests during the campaign, pledging to reduce the influence of money in politics, heighten ethical standards, rein in financial conflicts of interest in the Executive Branch and more.”
