‘Upending the electoral process’?

Or playing by the rules?

The managers of the presidential election recount in Dane and Milwaukee counties tell the Werkes they feel good about prevailing. Clerks in those counties mailed out absentee ballots, unbidden by the voter. That violates Wisconsin black-letter law; that being, that the voter must request such a ballot. CORRECTION: A request for absentee ballot appeared in the mail box at Blaska Stately Manor; we did not ask for it onewe did not use it.

At the polling place on November 3, the head groundskeeper was puzzled why the short line did not seem to be moving. Until we saw that one person was dumping off a bag o’ ballots. That was first!

The Trump recount also contends that election workers filled out missing addresses for absentee voters and accepted absentee votes without identification. In a past election, such votes from cloistered nuns confined to their convent in Sauk County were denied for that reason.

Democrats, their theory goes, voted absentee by a greater percentage than anyone else. The two counties are the state’s most populous and most Democrat(ic). Leave it to State Rep.-elect Francesca Hong (D-Madison) to play the race card. Demagogues like Hong provide the political cover for the midnight riders and glass breakers.

Darn near Nicaragua!

In the last thrilling episode of the Werkes, we detailed the pornographic harassment — two weeks after the election! — of two neighbors who dared express their presidential preference in the form of a yard sign. 

Trump will need other dominoes to fall besides Wisconsin. In Michigan, two Republicans on Detroit’s County Board of Canvassers want to rescind their votes to certify their county’s results. They claim they were coerced by threats against them and their families by Democratic voters. 

Harassment? Progressives? The indispensable Jonathan Turley notes that Democrats are calling for blacklists. The Lincoln Project has led a national effort to harass any lawyers who represent Republicans or the Trump campaign. Mr. Turley reports:

The two canvassers signed affidavits that they were hit with a torrent of threats against them and their families after they demanded that the board address irregularities in what they said were 71% of Detroit’s 134 absent voter counting boards.  They were hit with personal attacks calling them racists and cult members. In a familiar campaign of post-election intimidation, they were doxxed and attacked

Over at Ann’s Althouse, a commenter reports opening his newspaper to find this lede sentence of the front-page story from the Associated Press (the print version of MSNBC): 

Getting nowhere in the courts, President Donald Trump’s scattershot effort to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victory is shifting toward obscure election boards that certify the vote as Trump and his allies seek to upend the electoral process, sow chaos and perpetuate unsubstantiated doubts about the count.

“Obscure” as in Wayne County, which encompasses Detroit, Michigan. Anne’s reader asks: “How many loaded opinion words can you count in the lead of this “news” story?”

Blaska’s Bottom Line: If Trump manages to overturn the reported results of November 3, what is left of American cities will burn.

    That’s what one might call a catalyst. The irrational anti-constitutional thugs setting the fires would blame President Trump for the ensuing flames that starts the conflagration. Retaliation would soon consume those that oppose the thugs illegal rioting, there will be blood in the streets.

      • When you back anyone or any group into a corner with violence or threats of violence they will eventually respond with violence, it is human nature, it is inevitable and it is exactly the human nature that the infantry in the military strives to actively engage and train with tactics and discipline.

        The question is how far are the violent anti-constitutionalist and anti-American thugs willing to push those they oppose. As far as I’m concerned, the violent anti-constitutionalist and anti-American thugs are trying to intentionally provoke those they oppose to violence so they can sacrifice some martyrs on their side to forward their cause.

          You keep on throwing in things like “Funded by Billionaires” and you start sounding like one of those Occupy lunatics and it ruins the core of your arguments.

          Think about this a bit more logically; there are very few billionaires that would actually profit from the kind of chaos that is currently happening and could happen if open civil unrest were to dominate our society; in fact, billionaires loose many, many millions of wealth dollars when chaos ensues and the stock market takes a dive. The only ones that would really profit are the few billionaires that are deeply invested in weapons, particularly civilian grade firearms and ammunition.

          You foolishly publicly opened your mouth to change socks.

          Let’s review a little bit of really recent history dad29.

          I literally wrote and you literally quoted my words stating “there are very few billionaires that would actually profit from the kind of chaos” and that literally means that there are a some billionaires that will profit from this kind of chaos. What I wrote does not mean or imply in anyway that there are no billionaires that will profit from this kind of chaos, which is exactly how you comprehended my words.

          In reality; the apparent deficiency in knowledge is yours not mine.

          “It’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.”

          This is one of those times where you removed all doubt.

          That said; even though I’m not positive that the global money changers are actually billionaires, I’m pretty darn sure that some of them are among filthy rich and that makes your point a very good point. I do have a related question; do you really think that the global money changers would intentionally fund and promote societal chaos that could very well lead to civil war so they could increase their profits in money changing? At some point in the chaos their game will likely have diminishing returns and border on them to loose everything especially if they are immersed in the chaos.

          Gg Mo wrote, “Take your own advice .’It’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.’ ”

          I take that into consideration with literally every comment I choose to write, every comment I choose to edit and every comment I choose not to write. In context with this particular conversation, this part of your comment was an unneeded and somewhat unwelcome exaggeration.

    The Trump campaign announced Wednesday that it has filed for a recount in two Wisconsin counties, Milwaukee and Dane.

    The campaign said it paid a three million dollar filing fee for the recount in the two counties, which the state has acknowledged receiving.

    Tonight we heard from a Republican officer from Dane County Wisconsin.

    According to our source the recount workers will be paid $30 an hour for their work in the two counties. And only 12 out of 176 names submitted by the Republicans were scheduled as recount workers.

    Wisconsin’s presidential election is under investigation of vast voter fraud, an audit and a recount. Right now, the difference between Biden and Trump is 20,544 votes. President Trump has paid $3 million to recount Milwaukee and Dane Counties. There’s 60,000 challenged questionable votes in Milwaukee County and 40,000 in Dane. It’s on. Mrs. GDHM and I volunteered to be part of this historic effort to #StopTheSteal and to insure that we are not disenfranchised.

    To insure voter integrity and faith inout system, every LEGAL vote must be counted.

    The Lefty lie that, “there’s no evidence of voter fraud”, has been laid to rest. It was akin to their last Lefty lie, “it’s mostly peaceful protests” as the burning, looting and murdering continued.

    Who are you going to believe Ms. Media and their proglobotic pollsters, or your own lying eyes?

    The hive-minded #GetTrump media will try to cancel, ignore, obfuscate and “Gosnell” this story, and have circled their satellite trucks defensively around their Chosen One, but in the long run, that behavior only serves to bring more attention to this issue of massive voter fraud by the Democrats.

    Obviously ignorance is bliss here at the werks. The bags of ballots you witnessed being dropped off, in Dane County absentee ballots are delivered to be counted in their proper ward. I live in Waukesha County( yes non-believers I actually do) and after requesting an absentee ballot for the April primary, I also was sent a ballot for the November election. The fact that poll workers can fill out missing addresses on absentee ballots in Wisconsin is a result of a 2016 lawsuit filed by….wait for it…….the Trump campaign. For my first absentee ballot request in April I had to submit a photo of my drivers license with correct address, so once my proof of existence is on file I don’t need to do it again.

    Oh, no need to harass any lawyers working for the trump campaign, if they file frivolous suits with no proof they face censure by the BAR.

    The ballot application you received was standard procedure. Every registered voter in the state who hadn’t already requested an absentee ballot for the Fall election was sent an application to get an absentee ballot by the WEC. That motion passed with a unanimous vote. Pray-tell how that violates “Wisconsin black-letter law”?
    https://www.wpr.org/wisconsin-elections-commission-votes-send-absentee-ballot-applications-2-7m-voters

    The delivery bag of absentee ballots you saw occurred at every polling place in the City, and most polling places around the state (every municipality that doesn’t have a Central Count location). That’s the reason Dane County’s votes are always submitted so much faster than Milwaukee’s or West Bend’s – in Madison they tally absentee ballots – delivered on election day – at each respective polling station, while in Milwaukee they tally every ballot at one central location. (You may also recall that despite all the attention Milwaukee got, Washington County actually reported their total results after Milwaukee for this very reason).

Our local USPS is absolutely TERRIBLE! For the record, I have a serious problem with those unsolicited application for ballots being sent out to all registered voters, I don’t care where they come from. Any request for an absentee ballot needs to be initiated by the individual voter with their district not inspired by a solicitation via mass mailers to registered voters.
