Someone hacked this blogge!
Who says bi-partisanship is dead? America has now achieved bi-partisan agreement that our elections are as crooked as one of those carrots in the TV drug commercials for Peyronie’s disease. (Poor Peyronie, we knew him well.)
As he proved in Arizona last week, #45 continues to pack ‘em in, thereby proving P.T. Barnum’s dictum in Federalist #4 about the reproduction rate of fools. The Oath Keepers’ defense is that they were only following Dear Leader’s orders when they stormed the Capitol. Jawohl! (Everybody knows it was FBI agents disguised as Antifa! Anyway, everyone stayed within the rope lines.)
Democrats forget the kristallnacht visited upon downtown Washington D.C. at Donald Trump’s inauguration. Within weeks, Adam Schiff and Rachel Maddow were hawking the Russian collusion hoax — that Putin elected Donald Trump.
Earlier this week, President Brandon said the next election could “easily be made illegitimate” now that Chuck Schumer’s Vote Back Better is stuck to the bottom of Kyrsten Sinema’s pumps. (One more Clean-up on Aisle 7 and Jen Psaki will need a new mop.)
Social media friends prove the Constitution is as foreign to them as The Epic of Gilgamesh. They claim the document allows the violent overthrow of government whenever it ceases to guarantee freedom. (That’s what Jefferson Davis thought.)
Here in Wisconsin, Campbellsport is one of our prettier places. Our guess is that the locals sent Timothy Ranthum to Madison as a civic improvement project. The state representative charged Speaker Robin Vos with working with Hillary Clinton to allow drop boxes for voting in the next election. Robin Vos — the Republican leader who wound up Mike Gableman and sent him chattering across the political landscape like one of those false teeth gag toys!
Abbie Hoffman wrote “Steal This Book”
That’s Blaska’s next campaign slogan: “Steal this election!” The only way the head groundskeeper can win in the Emerald City. Waiting long in line to vote? Enjoy a mini bottle of orange Stoli, complements of the Blaska for Mayor campaign! Democracy in the Park is like Thanksgiving turkey. Those drop boxes could use a little stuffing! Got bear spray?
Blaska already has JFK Junior’s endorsement!
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Does El Salvador or Honduras have an equivalent of Jimmy Carter — some superannuated caudillo who managed to avoid the firing squad and now is a beloved uncle figure? Could they send the Señor north to monitor the next American election? Would it be easier to storm the White House than the Capitol? Asking for a friend.
I’d guarantee them the Rodgers rate. (Car insurance? Now there’s a scam.)
David asked, “Do American elections need UN observers?”
I have been asking myself that very question since around 2012 and I haven’t been able to justify it until this week. It’s hard to admit and I don’t know it it would do any good but it’s looking more and more to me like the answer should be yes.
The problem with observers is they really can’t tell you whether existing election laws have been properly followed or if those laws have been violated or intentionally subverted¹ with extralegal² bastardizations³. Currently violating and subverting election laws with extralegal bastardizations is where we have serious issues.
¹Subvert: verb undermine the power and authority of (an established system or institution).
²Extralegal: adjective, (of an action or situation) beyond the authority of the law; not regulated by the law.
³Bastardize: verb change (something) in such a way as to lower its quality or value, typically by adding new elements.

American elections need better candidates most of all.

AMEN to that !!!!!!!
Holy hell, yes. But part of the problem is that few people beyond well-funded borderline psychotics are willing to subject themselves to the tortures of the American political system.
The worst VP in history — totally incompetent and the most prominent identity politics/ diversity hire in history — doubled down on Brandon’s questioning of the legitimacy of the 2022 midterms.
I thought questioning election integrity was a thoughtcrime. When are they going to be banned from social media and have their assets frozen?

Do we need UN observers? Hmmmm.
There is no such thing as too much transparency.
In the immortal words of America’s first Asian-American, Non-Trans Woman, Vice-President, – it is time.
“It is time for us to do what we have been doing, and that time is every day. Every day, it is time.”
I ask you, who could possibly argue with that?

That’s Frontier Gibberish or communication malpractice.
Yes, lucidity is clearly not her first language, if she has any experience with it at all.
The Democrat’s desire for a fast and loose approach to voting is “problematic”
BUT, just looking at the Blaska campaign poster above, underscores the obvious answer, HAKA, (the traditional Maori war dance, look it up on YouTube). Both sides assemble at polling places and counting sites, and perform their haka to establish dominance. (We’ll show you “voter intimidation”!)
I know what you will say, that “the Woke already have the bulging eyes, vein-popping facial contortions, foot stomping, and spittle-flinging yells down pat.” But the Woke will probably refuse to participate because, “cultural appropriation”, and all that. And besides, no one could take them seriously, much less be intimidated.
—but if they show up—
The plan is– Let them go first. If people laugh at them, we leave, call it a day, (after expressing our concerns about “woke” mental health to the media covering the event).
Call it what you want; but, I’m glad to see the state DOJ is finally going after those fake electors that the gop came up with. Now we can have the Feds investigate this nonsense.
Here are two excellent articles from the publication Imprimis that is published by Hillsdale college. The first is an article titled: “Is Ensuring Election Integrity Anti-Democratic?” by Professor John Lott Jr. https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/ensuring-election-integrity-anti-democratic/
In this article he points out that in 2005 there was a commission on federal election reform that was headed by Jim Baker and Jimmy Carter “that proposed a uniform system of requiring a photo ID in order to vote in U.S. elections.” That most countries in the world do have the same requirements.
The second article in the same publication is by Mollie Hemingway titled: “”Zuckerbucks” and the 2020 Election””. https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/zuckerbucks-2020-election/. I know that I have pointed out this article before but I still think that it is well worth the read.
People also need to remember that not all elections in this country were or are run fairly. People forget about illegal voting that has taken place in the past. Look at this article titled: “How to Steal an Election” by John Fund. https://www.city-journal.org/html/how-steal-election-12824.html
In this article he starts out by pointing out that “…….. at least eight of the 19 foreign-national September 11 hijackers had registered to vote in either Florida or Virginia.” Huh! In this article he outlines the way that many elections were rigged so that one side would win.
Then there is the Tammany Hall era of Boss Tweed. In an article by Aimee Lamoureux titled: “The Rise And Fall Of Boss Tweed’s Tammany Hall” https://allthatsinteresting.com/boss-tweed-tammany-hall she points out the way that Boss Tweed stole elections.
And who could forget the Richard J. Daley machine in Chicago?
Finally we have to ask ourselves why people or organizations try to steal elections? The answer to me is rather plain and simple. Money and Power!
Just take a look at this article in an online publication called openthebooks.com The article is from Forbes Magazine about how much money Dr. Fauci and his wife earned last year in salaries and investments. https://www.openthebooks.com/forbes-disclosures-released-dr-fauci-household-earnings-exceeded-17-million-in-2020–included-income-royalties-travel-perks-and-investment-gains/
When you and your wife can make 1.7 million a year as government employee’s, then you can see the potential for abuse.
Even in our own state of Wisconsin you can see what State, County and City employee’s make. For example I looked up our current Governor to find that he is now paid more than $10,000 more than Scott Walker got paid when he was in office. https://www.openthebooks.com/wisconsin-state-employees/?Year_S=0&Emp_S=Office%20of%20the%20Governor Gosh, didn’t know that the cost of living went up that much for a guy who lives rent free in the Governors mansion.
