In some American states, the mid-term vote discrepancies seem to have been a dress rehearsal for 2020, President Trump’s re-election year.

So many strange things have been happening since Tuesday, November 6, 2018, especially in Florida, where a state-wide recount took place.

Here is a partial summary of vote discrepancies.

South Carolina

Katie Arrington (R) ended up losing narrowly to Joe Cunningham (D) in a bid to represent South Carolina’s 1st District in Congress.

On election night, The State reported (emphases mine):

11 p.m.

With 52 percent of results now in from the slow-moving 1st District race, Arrington maintains her lead of 53 percent to 47 percent for Cunningham.

The next morning, The State reported that Cunningham had won in a surprise upset:

In a stunning upset, a Democrat has won South Carolina’s coastal 1st District for the first time in 40 years.

Political newcomer Joe Cunningham narrowly defeated Republican state Rep. Katie Arrington Tuesday, flipping from red to blue a district that Republican President Donald Trump won by 13 points just two years ago. The Associated Press called the tight race at 2 a.m. Wednesday

Cunningham will replace U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford, the Charleston Republican whom Arrington beat in the June GOP primary after highlighting the two-time congressman’s criticisms of Trump and pledging to support the president’s agenda in Washington, D.C.

Meanwhile, all five of South Carolina’s incumbent congressmen kept their seats in landslide victories.

Hmm.

New Mexico

New Mexico discovered several thousand Democrat votes after a Republican candidate gave her victory speech:

Curious.

Minnesota

Keith Ellison won his bid for Minnesota attorney general, despite being investigated for domestic abuse against his former partner:

It’s not just fraud. Add to that voter stupidity.

Ellison had represented Minnesota’s fifth Congressional district since 2007 and was appointed as Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee last year, so he certainly had name recognition.

Wisconsin

Scott Walker (R) lost his re-election bid to Wisconsin’s governorship to Tony Evers (D) by just over one percent. Hmm.

One Wisconsin voter, Bev, was furious:

Her message is an important one, even though it is all one paragraph. It explains how the Dems know how many fraudulent votes to manufacture.

Arizona

Arizona’s Senate race was controversial. Military veteran Martha McSally (R) lost to Kyrsten Senema (D), raising eyebrows in a state where a Republican — i.e. the late John McCain — was Senator for many years:

By November 10, votes were still being counted — continuing in Sinema’s favour:

That day, The Epoch Times stated:

On Friday night, the lead was about one percentage point of the two million ballots tallied, with Sinema at 991,433 votes and McSally at 971,331 votes. Some 80,000 ballots were submitted to the state from Maricopa County, tilting towards Sinema by more than 11,500, reported 12 News. More than 400,000 remain to be counted statewide, most from Maricopa.

Sinema for Arizona campaign manager Andrew Piatt said in a statement that Sinema will win. “Kyrsten will steadily build her advantage and be elected to the U.S. Senate. She will win this race,” he said.

And, lo, she had.

On November 12, Ricochet said that McSally had been too cautious a candidate and was unprepared for a determined Democrat GOTV (Get Out The Vote) campaign:

The Pima County Republican is very cautious. Very cautious. Instead of barnstorming the map and mixing it up with all comers, she carefully issues press releases and attends controlled events. She wouldn’t even agree to a debate with Sinema for months and then only participated in one …

McSally hails from Pima County, home to Tucson, while Sinema is from Maricopa County, home to Phoenix. More than half the state’s population lives in the latter, so they didn’t know much about the Tucson-based candidate. She needed to spend a lot more time defining herself since Sinema was already defined to a big chunk of Arizonans

If the GOP wants to win in the Grand Canyon State, they can’t rest on their party registration advantage and old trends. Instead, great candidates need to run great campaigns and, at the very least, keep up with Democratic GOTV innovations.

Larry Schweikart, who watched the mid-terms closely, has this analysis:

Sinema is, at heart, a radical. However, she was careful not to expose that side to the public.

I still maintain there were suspect votes in that count. So does the president:

Florida

As I write, the final recount totals appear to be in for Florida.

The initial count was still going on for two days after the election:

Senator Marco Rubio (R) pointed out that counties hit by Hurricane Michael were capable of getting their vote totals in on time:

That day, Rubio went further. Fox News reported:

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio on Thursday charged that two Democrat-controlled counties in the state, in possible violation of election law, have been reporting a “slow drip” of tens of thousands of additional ballots favorable to several Democratic candidates for statewide office, including incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson.

Liberal lawyers, Rubio said in an extraordinary series of tweets that alleged incompetence if not outright complicity by Florida officials, are “descending on” the state in a calculated attempt to “change the results” and “try and steal” races for Senate and agriculture commissioner.

Some former Floridians now living out of state received Florida ballots. Interesting:

President Trump was aware of the situation in the Palm Beach – Fort Lauderdale area:

Gateway Pundit discussed what was going on in Broward County (Fort Lauderdale) on November 8:

The US Senate candidates in Florida received 24,000 fewer votes than the Gubernatorial candidates.

How is this possible? (We know the answer already) …

Breaking update: Governor Rick Scott & the NRSC are filing a public records lawsuit against Broward election supervisor Brenda Snipes for failing to provide them with information about outstanding ballots that have yet to be tabulated

The lawsuit comes as Scott’s margins are shrinking v. Sen Nelson …

That same day, Gateway Pundit carried an eye-witness report on ballots in Broward County (emphasis in the original):

Florida voter JoAnn Knox captured Broward County Election Officials Transferring Ballots in Rented Truck on Election Night!

The article includes her full statement from Facebook, which makes for shocking reading.

Former Independent candidate Tim Canova tweeted this video:

More reports emerged:

On November 9, it looked as if Mike Caldwell (R) had lost his bid for Florida’s agricultural commissioner to Nikki Fried (D). The News-Press reported (emphases mine):

Caldwell thought he had edged out a victory in the agricultural commissioner race Tuesday night when he had about a 40,000 vote lead over Democratic candidate Nikki Fried.

But the latest vote count shows Caldwell losing by 3,120 votes to Fried. The difference between the candidates is .04 percent, signaling an automatic recount, and a likely manual recount.

“Over the course of the last two and half days, the Broward supervisor has continued to magically find boxes of ballots that have potentially altered the course of the race,” Caldwell said in an interview Friday. “And after all that time, we still cannot get a straight answer as to where they came from, when they were cast. We just heard there is another magical box of 2,100 ballots they supposedly found here (Friday).”

He said what is happening in Broward County is unacceptable.

Fried, he said, is from Broward County. Fried’s campaign team had no comment to make to News-Press at that time.

Florida’s congressman Matt Gaetz (R) had this to say about Florida’s election count in Broward:

In Palm Beach County, Democrats wanted non-citizens’ votes counted:

It seems as if Rick Scott (R) won his Senate seat by a narrow margin. Here’s the GOP chairwoman offering her congratulations. Incidentally, she is Mitt Romney’s niece:

Nelson was hanging tough, though:

It also looks as if Ron DeSantis (R) won the governorship over Andrew Gillum (D), again by a slim margin.

President Trump said:

This is how many votes Broward County’s election commissioner managed to find:

On Sunday, November 11, a criminal investigation was launched into voting in Broward and Palm Beach counties. According to the Gateway Pundit, all Florida counties met a deadline for final vote tallies on November 10.

Even so, on November 11, investigative journalist Laura Loomer who was in Fort Lauderdale at the time, reported a ‘bomb threat’ was declared at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Another box of ‘provisional votes’ had been spotted in a rental car last driven by a Broward County employee (this man, perhaps?). Laura Loomer has more on her website. Here is a brief video of an interview of a Republican Party lawyer. Here is another video of hers explaining what the sheriff’s office had to say. She alleges that some of his law enforcement officers are embarrassed.

She also managed to obtain a frank statement from a Democrat attorney on destroying votes:

Indeed, because as someone else explained, quick destruction means no trail:

Other states

On November 12, the Gateway Pundit reported that vote count irregularities had also occurred in Georgia and California:

Democrats have mysteriously found thousands of new votes in Georgia on Saturday after losing the governor’s seat on Tuesday.

And now several California Republican candidates who led their races by significant margins on election night days later are losing their seats as Democrats produce new votes several days later.

Conclusion

President Trump had set up an election commission to address fraud in 2017. However, because so many blue states refused to co-operate, it had to be abandoned in January 2018.

It’s apparent that something concrete and effective must be done before 2020 about vote fraud, which, contrary to what Democrats and their water carriers in the media say, does exist.

Enforcing the laws would be a start. Getting rid of early voting weeks before an election would be another. Stipulating that absentee votes must arrive on or by election day would be another. Non-citizens must be prohibited from voting (the Motor Voter programme registers nearly everyone applying for a driver’s licence). At least Texas governor Greg Abbott will investigate that in his state.

Until then, by golly, what a dress rehearsal by the Dems for 2020.

Politically and culturally, the whole of this year in the US has been a build-up to the mid-term elections.

I barely scratched the surface of everything I wanted to cover in this regard, so I might use that material to analyse the results in the days to come.

Two things are clear.

One: this is a referendum on Donald Trump’s presidency.

Two: the Democrat Party is dying. (I refuse to write ‘Democratic’, because they do not live up to it.)

That said, it is incumbent on independents and Republicans to go out and vote on Tuesday, November 6. Here are Cuban immigrants’ views:

The US needs another monster Republican vote to overcome voter fraud.

What follows are my final thoughts before Election Day, written at the end of October.

Trump and young black conservatives

By the time you read this, President Trump will have welcomed a large group of young black conservatives to the White House:

On October 23, the New York Post reported that the first ever Young Black Leadership Summit is sponsored by Turning Point USA (TPUSA), a conservative student organisation founded by Charlie Kirk (see tweets throughout this post). Candace Owens is TPUSA’s Director of Communications and has been pivotal in getting Kanye West to speak out about his support for President Trump.

The Post‘s article says, in part (emphases mine):

Owens, who was gaining traction as a black YouTube star with right political leanings, wanted to hold a forum for young black Americans who were “conservative curious,” as she once was, from day one.

“So my mission was always really clear when Charlie and I met. One of the first things he asked me was, ‘What do you want to do?’ And I said, really, in plain words, ‘I’d like to lead the black revolution against the Democrat Party,’” Owens told The Post.

While Owens joined the group in November, the plan to hold a conference for young black people got a shot of dragon energy in April.

Just days before he would put on the MAGA hat and pronounce his love for Trump, rapper Kanye West tweeted, “I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” the first online suggestion that he was more Republican-leaning.

Kirk said that West’s tweet made both Owens and Turning Point more prominent.

“And kind of gave more reinforcement to the idea of a black leadership summit because during that moment we saw hundreds of blacks across the country come out and say to Candace, ‘Oh my goodness, this is an amazing thing that you’re doing, we love you, we’re afraid to voice our mind,” Kirk explained to The Post. “Candace and I wondered, ‘I wonder how many there really are?’”

Turns out there are at least 350 to 400 young black people interested in hearing Trump speak.

Kanye was not at the conference and by Monday, October 29, had pulled away from the Turning Point organisation over a disagreement about Blexit (black exit) merchandise marketing.

That said, the crowd attending President Trump’s address to them was highly enthusiastic:

This is news bad for the Dems:

Border security

ICE have a tough job, especially as they are under-manned patrolling the southern border. That said, they rack up some incredible accomplishments, as TPUSA’s Charlie Kirk tweets:

Think about that, especially when Democrats, the media and other leftists plea for us to ‘think about the children!’

When it comes to illegal entry, there are a lot of bad, exploitative people crossing the border. When I think of the children among them, I think of the human and sex trafficking victims, exploited people.

Obama, when he was a senator, also said that the rule of law must be respected with regard to crossing the border:

The ‘caravan’

While the world still believes the Trump campaign is guilty of colluding with Russia two years ago at this time, there is little news associating the human caravan in Mexico — happening right before the election — with foreign interests.

Vice President Pence said it is being ‘financed by Venezuela’ which is a nuanced way of saying that foreign powers that own and influence the impoverished nation are behind it. The Conservative Treehouse (CTH) explains:

Announcing the migrant caravan is “financed by Venezuela” is a direct notification the Central American invasion force is being funded by Russia and China.  Venezuela doesn’t have any money to sustain its own operational government – let alone a 10,000 person convoy.  Venezuela is entirely reliant upon massive investment from Russia and China.

In fact China owns 49% of Venezuela’s state run PDVSA energy production. A collateral system where Beijing takes oil as payment for prior loans the Maduro regime cannot pay back.  With the crippling treasury department sanctions President Trump put on Venezuela last year, Trump has punched Maduro and Xi-Jinping hard.

With Mike Pence pointing a finger at Venezuela the politics behind the invasion force begin to make much more sense. The invasion objective takes on a geopolitical angle directly targeting a series of U.S. policies that are against the interests of Russia and China.

The post goes on to say that Trump and Treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin have sanctioned Venezuela and limited their ability to expand state oil revenue. China cannot trade directly with Venezuela at the risk of losing access to the US banking system. China continues lending to Venezuela, which will have little chance of repaying the loans.

Furthermore, the US has withdrawn $900m in aid from Pakistan in an effort to stop them enabling extremism in Afghanistan. As China is Pakistan’s main trading partner, Pakistan looks to them to fill the aid gap, unless the World Bank decides to bail them out.

Russia is being squeezed as the US increases its influence in the energy markets in Europe. European nations that were getting their energy supplies from Russia are increasingly turning towards the US for LNG, oil and coal.

The CTH post has more details, but, from this, we see that it is entirely plausible for Vice President Pence to conclude that ‘Venezuela’ is behind the human caravan just before the mid-terms. If so, this constitutes election meddling by a foreign power.

On that note, the Gateway Pundit reported that tens of thousands of migrants are already pouring across the southern border into the United States — including Chinese citizens:

Thousands of illegal aliens are swarming the Texas border this month in advance of the migrant caravan marching through Mexico, prompting Chief Patrol Agent Manuel Padilla, Jr., the Customs and Border Patrol Sector Chief of the Rio Grande Valley, to beg for help dealing with the onslaught of illegal aliens, gang members and drug cartel smugglers. Just on Saturday over 700 illegal aliens were caught, with over 12,000 caught in the past three weeks. In addition, safe houses have been busted and drug smugglers intercepted by the overstretched CBP in the Rio Grande Valley.

16,000 “family units” were reported caught in the last month in the RGV sector by CBP. All these illegals take manpower and resources to detain, process, house, clothe, feed, and give medical treatment.

Padilla sent out several tweets this weekend with the message, “We need “, in conjunction with video reports by on scene Fox News Channel reporter Griff Jenkins …

In his interview Sunday with Jenkins about the migrant caravan marching through Mexico, Padilla said that just the day before his sector reported 700 illegal aliens caught at the border, 8 human smuggling cases, one dead body recovered, a potential river drowning (body not surfaced yet), over 700 pounds of marijuana and 68 pounds of peyote seized–all on Saturday.

In a separate report, Jenkins noted a group of illegal aliens from China were caught.

This migration is being orchestrated. It is not a spontaneous ‘humanitarian’ movement. It is designed to provoke Trump into taking violent action before November 6.

Nationalism

Nationalism has been a dirty word for nearly 20 years, unless a Democrat uses it favourably. Then it’s okay:

At a recent campaign rally, President Trump described himself as a ‘nationalist’ in the MAGA sense. On October 23, CNN’s Jim Acosta, the son of immigrants, took him to task for it in the Oval Office. Trump replied that he is tired of seeing the US pay more than its fair share when it comes to NATO and trade. Trump’s answer is excellent and measured, especially to a journo who should have had his White House press privileges revoked last year:

Selected state races

Here is an update on a few state races.

North Dakota

On October 17, I wrote about the deleterious effect the Dems’ antics during the Kavanaugh hearings had on American voters. I mentioned North Dakota, where Heidi Heitkamp is running for re-election against Kevin Cramer. Up until the Kavanaugh hearings, she looked comfortable. Now, not so much. She also had to suspend campaigning after her team released an ad which identified victims of sexual assault:

Worse was to come. That day, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released an expose of her and her campaign team. Her campaign workers say that, if the Democrats win a majority, her political stance will move further to the left. Currently, she tries to present herself as a centrist, even refusing an appearance from Obama, so as not to offend Trump Democrats who might vote for her. However, it’s all for show:

Michigan

Another Democrat senator running for re-election is Michigan’s Debbie Stabenow. Her GOP opponent is a young veteran and West Point graduate, John James. Unfortunately, only lately has James’s campaign been getting much traction. That’s because he is a political outsider:

Here’s a short, honest advert from James. I hope he wins:

Florida

Andrew Gillum is the Democrat candidate running for governor in Florida.

He has influential money behind him, as the Tampa Bay Times reported on July 23, which was during primary season:

Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer’s group NextGen America made waves last month when it announced it is backing Democrat Andrew Gillum in the Florida governor’s race.

This week, the group is putting some more money where its mouth is.

NextGen America is making a six-figure digital ad buy in support of Gillum, pushing two new ads on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other online platforms, according to a release obtained by the Tampa Bay Times.

“We know that young voters are online, and a strong and smart digital campaign will be key to pushing Andrew Gillum across the finish line on August 28th,” Steyer, the president of NextGen America, said in the release.

Gillum won the Dem nomination, but questions arose soon afterwards:

Gillum admits the following is true and that he has a ’15-year relationship’ with another influential donor:

On September 3, this appeared:

In that interview, the show’s host Chuck Todd summarised Gillum’s platform:

You ran as an unabashed progressive Democrat. You’re for Medicare for all, you talk about getting rid of ICE …

No wonder those two billionaires are supporting him. That’s exactly what they want.

On October 14, online host Bill Mitchell did a little social media stumping for Gillum’s Republican opponent:

Meanwhile, Breitbart was digging into Gillum’s background. On October 17, they gave us more information about the Soros connection (bold emphasis in the original, the one in purple mine):

Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum graduated from an Oakland, California-based training school for progressive revolutionaries that has spawned a list of activists who have gone on to become the who’s who of the far-left leadership world, with many taking senior positions at organizations financed by billionaire George Soros.

In scores of cases, graduates of the Rockwood Leadership Institute founded or directed notorious Soros-financed activist groups, such as Black Lives Matter, Media Matters for America, MoveOn.org and the Tides Foundation, one of the nation’s largest funders of progressive groups.

Soros’s own Open Society Foundations sent top staff to Rockwood for training. Notorious radicals Van Jones and Linda Sarsour are among the many famous names listed as alums.

Gillum graduated from Rockwood in 2012, yet he told independent journalist Joe Biggs (see above tweet), that he has a ’15-year relationship’ with Soros. Interesting.

Breitbart‘s article describes how Soros donates to Gillum’s campaign (emphases mine):

Soros, meanwhile, has directly donated to organizations seeking to get Gillum elected. Days before Gillum’s Aug. 28 primary, Soros joined with billionaire Tom Steyer to lead a group of donors making a $650,000 infusion into Gillum’s coffers.

Soros also contributed to The Collective, a little-known but increasingly influential political organization that says it is seeking to build a “black political power” movement. The Collective reportedly injected nearly $2 million into Gillum’s campaign, funding television and radio ads, get-out-the-vote drives, and playing a key role in helping Gillum defeat his Democratic opponents, some of whom were better-funded and had more statewide name recognition. The group announced plans to continue backing Gillum during the current general election campaign.

On October 20, Breitbart reported voting irregularities among Gillum’s siblings:

Leon County voting records show Marcus Gillum voted by absentee in the 2012 general election, absentee in the 2014 primary election, and early voted in the 2016 general election.

But the trouble is, months before he cast that 2016 ballot in Florida, Marcus Gillum, in an affidavit for an unrelated court case, swore under oath he was a resident of Chicago.

Also, according to records, Marcus Gillum is still currently registered to vote in Leon County at a home that his brother, gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, sold over three years ago. The Leon County Property Appraiser indicates that Andrew Gillum sold 5325 St. Ives Lane on February 27th, 2015.

Furthermore, Florida Department of Motor Vehicle records show that Marcus Gillum has not had a valid Florida drivers license since 2011

This information was presented to Leon County Supervisor of Elections Mark Earley. “Based on this information I will initiate an investigation into potential voter ineligibility,” Earley said.

Earley also added that fraudulent voting is actually very difficult to prevent.

“It could be that (ineligible voters) consider Leon County to be their place of residence,” Earley said. “But the reality is until they notify us that it isn’t their residence, or we are notified by a different jurisdiction we have nothing to go on to remove them as an active voter.”

But voting irregularities involving Andrew Gillum’s siblings may not be confined to his brother Marcus. Voter records indicate that Monique Gillum, Andrew Gillum’s sister, voted in Florida despite questions about residency.

Monique Gillum voted absentee in the 2012 general election, absentee in 2014 primary election, early voted in the 2016 general election, and voted in the 2018 primary election.

However, like her brother Marcus, voting records also show that Monique Gillum is still currently registered to vote at the St. Ives address. However, the mailing address she provided to the Leon County Supervisor of Elections is a P.O Box in New York City.

Public records show Monique Gillum does have a current Florida drivers license with a Tallahassee address. However, the address is different from the two provided to the Leon County Supervisor of Elections.

Also, other records, including work she did as a registered lobbyist for the Southern Poverty Law Center, indicate that Monique resided in Montgomery, Alabama from 2014 to 2016 …

Hmm.

On October 23, news emerged that Gillum’s ticket to the musical Hamilton came from an undercover FBI agent:

The Miami Herald broke the story, which also involves Gillum’s aforementioned brother Marcus:

Undercover FBI agents paid for Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum’s hotel room and his ticket to the Broadway musical “Hamilton” during a 2016 trip to New York City, according to a bombshell trove of records that raises new questions two weeks before the Nov. 6 election for Florida governor.

Among the records released Tuesday: photos, a video and dozens of text messages between Gillum, who is the Democratic nominee for governor, former lobbyist Adam Corey and an undercover FBI agent. They appear to contradict Gillum’s explanation for the expenses, which have been made a major issue by his Republican rival, Ron DeSantis.

Gillum’s campaign has maintained — and continued to do so Tuesday after the records were released — that Gillum’s brother, Marcus, handed him the ticket the night of the show.

But text messages at the time of the trip show Gillum was told the tickets came from “Mike Miller,” an FBI agent looking into city corruption who was posing as a developer …

The campaign has not said how Marcus Gillum, who lives in Chicago, came by such a sought-after Broadway ticket, or whether Andrew Gillum asked his brother about it.

“These messages only confirm what we have said all along,”Andrew Gillum said on Facebook Live on Tuesday. “We did go to see ‘Hamilton.’ I did get my ticket to ‘Hamilton’ from my brother. At the time, we believed that they were reserved by friends of Adam’s, Mike Miller.

“And when I got there after work, got my ticket, we went in there and saw it, assumed my brother paid for it, and so far as I know, that was the deal” …

Once a close friend of Gillum’s, Corey is at the center of the FBI’s long-running probe into corruption in Tallahassee. No one has been charged, and Gillum has said that agents assured him he was neither a target nor a focus of the probe.

Gillum has repeatedly given vague answers to questions about who paid for the New York City trip. His avoidance of a direct answer became pronounced during a Sunday debate on CNN between DeSantis and Gillum.

“Did you pay for the ‘Hamilton’ tickets?” DeSantis asked.

But there’s more. The new information raises a question over how the trip to New York was financed:

They show that undercover FBI agents posing as businessmen were working for months to get an out-of-state meeting with Gillum, and that Gillum appeared willing to oblige them.

In June 2016, Corey texted Miller, the undercover agent, telling him that he would discuss options with Gillum.

“I just want to make it a good trip and Sweets and B will be booked on something else if we don’t lock something down,” Miller replied.

“Mike Sweets” and “Brian Butler” were the two other undercover FBI agents posing as businessmen

… they met in New York, while Gillum was attending a conference on behalf of the People for the American Way Foundation, a liberal advocacy group that employed him.

Text messages show Miller paid for the airfare and hotel room for Gillum’s brother, Marcus.

“Send me the mayor and his brother’s information and I will have my girl book their flights,” Miller wrote.

Corey replied that Gillum had already booked his flight, but he would send his brother’s information “ASAP.”

“Just tell them to let me know what their flights cost and I will cover it,” Miller said.

The ethics complaint was filed against Gillum in June this year, and Gillum met with investigators in early September

Tuesday’s document dump was the type of event Democrats feared when Gillum won the party’s nomination in August but hoped would never come. Though supporters generally dismissed the significance of the texts and emails between Gillum and Corey, one Democratic consultant acknowledged that anyone on the fence about Gillum could be deflated.

The timing of the release — exactly two weeks before Election Day and on the second day of early voting — comes during a key period for the Democratic Party, when voters typically begin showing up to the polls in large numbers and making up the advantage Republicans build during absentee voting …

On October 31, Project Veritas issued a damning video of Gillum’s campaign and a written summary. Gillum is left wing, not just left-of-centre. Omar Smith, the main campaign worker interviewed, said Gillum promises things he will not be able to accomplish. Be prepared for untoward remarks about Floridians:

James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, went to follow up. Omar Smith, the main speaker in the video, has asked that these videos not be circulated. This is bad news for Gillum:

From 1968 …

In closing, this 50-year-old poster about voting helped Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew win an election in a highly turbulent year in the US (Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination, Bobby Kennedy’s assassination and the riots by radicals during the Democratic National Convention in Chicago). It’s no surprise that Republicans won that year:

It has the same message that Republicans are trying to get out today, especially taking other people along so that they, too, can vote.

Fifty years on, here is the unofficial, but no less powerful, Republican slogan circulating online:

President Trump has tweeted several times recently, including in the tweet below with a short video from his Houston rally, promising what Republicans will continue to do to shore up the US:

PROMISES MADE. PROMISES KEPT.

Regardless about what one’s personal opinions are about the much-derided Stephen Bannon, his documentary about President Trump is one which must be seen, particularly with America’s upcoming mid-term elections in mind.

This is his complete video, Trump@War, which is well worth watching. It is one hour and 16 minutes long:

‘Explicit version’ in this instance does not mean anything a family cannot view together, unless they find President Trump’s manner of speech appalling. If they do, then this documentary is not for them. They are not Americans who respect the polity of the Great Republic.

The first third of the film explores Trump’s candidacy from the summer of 2015, complete with film of the escalator scene, through to 2016 with the Left’s unhinged violence.

After 40 minutes or so, Trump’s first term, the present one, unfolds, with its many accomplishments nationally and internationally.

Trump @War makes clear that the US president has many enemies at home, however, what is worth noting is that many of America’s former enemies respect the man who is attempting to wrestle them into a peace-loving proposition.

For this reason, please, America, vote a straight Republican ticket on or before Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Thank you. The world depends on it.

In closing, below are two important pro-Republican adverts to watch. I hope any Americans reading pass these onto their friends before November 6. (There’s rough language in the second, but it is good that it was left in, because it shows how much hate that guy has.)

Thank you in advance for passing these along!

The GOP — Grand Old Party — has come out with some good adverts in the run up to the mid-term elections.

A recent one is about the violence that Democrat legislators encourage.

Before getting to the ad, however, here are even more examples of how the unhinged Left are attacking Republicans, even wet ones like Senator Jeff Flake from Arizona:

The Secret Service has also been investigating people who have sent threatening items sent through the post to Republicans and their family members:

Now on to the recent ad from the Republican Party:

Here’s the YouTube version:

That’s former Speaker of the House (yes) Nancy Pelosi (D-California) indirectly advocating violence against political opponents. The Daily Wire‘s Ryan Saavedra reports her quote (emphases mine):

“We have to have total clarity about what we do when it comes to everything — a woman’s right to choose, gay marriage … whether it’s about immigration, whether it’s about gun safety, whether it’s about climate …” Pelosi said earlier this week. “I think that we owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose.”

Pelosi was Speaker of the House under Obama for a time and famously said of the bill for Obamacare:

We have to pass it to find out what’s in it.

Incredibly, millions of Americans believed that line.

One hopes they will not make the same mistake on Tuesday, November 6.

It would be a shame if Pelosi were once again Speaker of the House.

Vote Republican.

A lot of great interviews have been taking place in the run up to the mid-terms.

By way of introduction to the interview Rush Limbaugh gave Sean Hannity, let us consider this. The photo is of Air Force One in Missoula, Montana, where President Trump gave a rally on Thursday, October 18:

At that rally, Trump once again had much to say. Breitbart has a short report with highlights (emphases mine):

The choice could not be more clear: Democrats produce mobs, Republicans produce jobs,” Trump said during a campaign rally in Montana …

The president highlighted the Democrat effort to personally destroy Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during the Senate confirmation battle.

Trump said the protesters against Kavanaugh were “paid by Soros” and used professional signs in their rallies at the Supreme Court …

Trump said that Democrats would try to raise taxes, impose socialism, destroy health care and the Second Amendment, and support open borders.

Democrats have become the party of crime,” Trump said. “They would rather devastate America’s communities than defend America’s borders.”

Rush covered these topics in his interview with Sean Hannity that same day. This is one interview where Hannity does not interrupt his guest. This is probably because a) Hannity used to guest host for Rush and b) the interview was held in Rush’s office in Florida. Enjoy:

Rush is celebrating his 30th anniversary on national radio. He said it was more than he ever dreamt of.

He then went on to discuss the behaviour of the Democrats and the Left, which he said has no legitimacy in American society. By that, he meant that decent Americans do not want to be intimidated by violence to change their votes or their way of life. That’s not how America works.

He said he was puzzled that the Democrats think they can use violence to not only make Americans recant their support of Donald Trump but make Trump himself change.

He said that America is very fortunate that Hillary did not win the election in 2016, because she would have continued the decline that Obama started. He said that the United States would have experienced fewer jobs, a failing economy, poor foreign relations and more.

Rush was a bit late to the Trump party, even if he said here that he knew Trump would be the Republican candidate as soon as he saw him on the escalator in Trump Tower in 2015.

Rush also said that too many Americans still watch too much mainstream media news. I couldn’t agree more. It would be nice if Fox News gave him a weekend show of his own.

He also criticised the media for not engaging positively with Trump supporters, i.e. finding out why the president’s policies are important to them and to traditional American values.

I realise that a lot of people don’t care for Rush, but this is an excellent interview.

I would also recommend this video to readers who do not live in the United States and who still give credence to the Democrats, Hillary Clinton and Obama.

Senator Lindsey Graham is a bit of a wet Republican.

However, he is passionate in seeing Republican judges appointed, such as Justice Kavanaugh. The crazy Left gave him a lot of flak for that.

On Tuesday, October 16, 2018, he appeared on FOX & friends to give his viewpoint on voting Democrat in the upcoming mid-term elections:

The Democrats of the 21st century are all about chaos, intimidation, violence and open borders.

Vote Republican on or before November 6.

Tucker Carlson had a great segment on his Tuesday, October 16, 2018, Fox News show:

In seven-and-a-half minutes, he reviews all the recent Democratic craziness surrounding Justice Kavanaugh, Senator Elizabeth Warren’s false claim to be Cherokee and the violent protests on the West Coast (e.g. Portland).

I know many Britons who believe, thanks to media distortion on this side of the pond, that the Democrats are still the good guys. They, and others like them, should watch Carlson dismantle this notion big time.

Carlson says that the Dems could have used serious rhetoric against the Republicans. Instead, they chose to act unhinged.

Of course, Americans still need to actually vote Republican before or on November 6 to see the conclusive collapse of the Democrats.

On Monday, October 15, 2018, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released a bombshell video about Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri) who is running for re-election this year.

This is a must-see for everyone, especially those who do not live in the United States, because it shows the Dems’ dirty, hypocritical tactics:

McCaskill has presented herself as a moderate, especially to Missouri’s rural population, which is how she gets re-elected. Her campaign staff say in the video that she gets a decent amount of Republican votes.

However, the truth is far different. Claire McCaskill is no moderate. In fact, she sings the Democrat tune loud and clear away from the campaign trail.

Project Veritas has a summary of the video’s content.

Here’s more:

– On gun control, one of her staffers says that after voting for a ban on bump stocks and semi-automatic weapons — likely bills should the Democrats obtain a majority in the mid-terms — she would go further and ban private ownership of guns altogether.

– She has an advert from a Border Patrol organisation wherein its members say she supports strong borders. A member of her campaign staff says that the intention is to get Missouri voters to think that Homeland Security teams support her. The reality is that the Border Patrol organisation in the advert is, in fact, a union. McCaskill does not support tough border control at all.

– McCaskill purposely does not want Obama to come and campaign for her, because Missouri voters do not like him. If he stays away, she will be viewed more favourably.

– On impeachment, she says nothing, however, her team members say that she does support impeaching Trump. Should that happen (unlikely, unless the Dems win a majority!), and if she were asked about it, she would simply say that she couldn’t mention it during the campaign because it was a matter of national security. Should President Trump be impeached, she would say that it is time to move on to a better president, according to her staff.

Missouri voters, especially Republicans, should know exactly what Claire McCaskill is all about. She isn’t a moderate, that’s for sure.

The crazed Democrat reaction to Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court is the 2018 mid-term October Surprise.

It’s galvanised the GOP — Republican — base to the extent that, provided all these angry yet decent Americans vote between now and November 6, the Grand Old Party should hold both the House and the Senate, possibly with increased majorities.

The outrage is even spreading in Dem-dominated states, such as New Jersey. George S Bardmesser, a lawyer, wrote about it for The Federalist, ‘The Left’s Treatment Of Kavanaugh Fills Millions Of Americans with Rage’ (emphases mine):

This last Friday night, I spoke to my 81-year-old father. We talked of his health, and then he surprised me. “Can you believe this outrage in the Senate?” he said, his voice trembling with rage. “How can they do this to this man? How?”

We rarely talk politics

I didn’t think my father followed the goings-on in Washington. My initial response was: “I’d rather not talk about it, or I’ll pop an artery in my brain.” But then I told him: “You live in New Jersey. Guess what? Your senator is up for re-election, and he is a corrupt Democrat. Talk to your friends. Get them to vote for the Republican in November. This time, you have a chance.”

Again, he surprised me. He said he doesn’t need to talk to them, they are already planning to vote Republican. Every single one of them. “Tell them to talk to their friends,” I said. “Tell them to get every one of their friends to vote.” “I will,” he said, “I must.” So there will be a few more people voting against Sen. Bob Menendez five weeks from now.

Bardmesser writes that Kavanaugh’s speech in his own defence turned his nomination around. Let’s recall that Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations comprised a story full of unanswered questions. The Left — including Dems — accepted them as true. Bardmesser and many other Americans know this was not about Kavanaugh but American men in general.

He wrote this on October 2, when leftist accusations were at their peak, but it’s worth remembering what those first few days in October 2018 were like:

The next step in the progressive hate parade is straightforward: Kavanaugh is a serial rapist and killer who buries his victims in his back yard. (Pardon me, an alleged serial rapist and killer—he hasn’t been convicted yet, which is a minor inconvenience for the left, but only a minor one.) But worry not. Stormy Daniels and her reptiloid lawyer are on the case.

I shake with fury when I think about how Democrats are using Ford, a woman with memory and documented psychological issues, in a calculated vicious campaign of obstruction, character assassination, and destruction of one of our finest judges. If they can do this to him, they can do it to anyone. And we all know they will do it to anyone. We all know this is the new normal: weaponizing sexual misconduct allegations, however uncorroborated, however improbable, however lurid or bizarre, against Republican nominees. Everyone is vulnerable. Everyone.

Righteous anger at Democrats about Kavanaugh lanced a figurative boil, reminding Americans of everything else that infuriates them:

I shake with fury when I think of how this farcical confirmation process is symptomatic of what Democrats are doing to our country, from workplaces to universities, from old media to new media, from schools to kindergardens. Everyone is now vulnerable to the wildest accusations of sexual impropriety, with no proof needed, since the charges are inherently unprovable, and one must always believe the victim.

They will take that righteous anger to the ballot box, Dems.

That same day — October 2, when Dems were sure Kavanaugh would cave — Quinnipiac published a poll saying that Republicans were closing their deficit of voting enthusiasm, from 14 to 7 percentage points. Hot Air reported:

Quinnipiac has produced some of the largest gaps in the aggregated polling on the generic congressional ballot this cycle. Their previous poll, taken at the beginning of September, showed Republicans trailing by a disastrous 14 points with two months to go before the midterms.

Today, it’s seven points — among registered voters

Also worth noting: this is the lowest level polled for Democrats in the Quinnipiac series since at least the first week of July, after which they have remained at 50% or above until now. It also ties the highest level achieved by Republicans in the series from mid-August

Does this represent a Kavanaugh effect? The polling for this took place between Thursday and Sunday, meaning that three of the four days came after the televised hearings in which Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford testified, a hearing obsessively covered by the national news media. One might have expected Democrats to get a bump coming out of that hearing, especially given the tenor of the coverage it received. Instead, the momentum shifted in the other direction even among the wider population. It’s tough to directly correlate that to Kavanaugh, since Quinnipiac didn’t bother to ask any questions on the issue, but it’s tough to assume that it had no impact either.

Another state where the Dem lead is in trouble is North Dakota, home to Senator Heidi Heitkamp, whose re-election bid could be in trouble. On October 1, KFYR TV reported:

We start out with the latest numbers for the race for Senate. According to SRA, it surveyed 650 likely voters last month. And, Republican challenger Rep. Kevin Cramer leads incumbent Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp by 10 percentage points; 51 percent to 41 percent. Eight percent have yet to make up their mind …

Obviously a hot topic lately is the pending confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Sixty percent of voters in North Dakota support Kavanaugh with 27 percent expressing opposition. The poll was conducted during the recent disclosure that Kavanaugh may have engaged in sexual misconduct while in high school and college, but before the Sept. 27 testimony by Kavanaugh and one of his accusers before the Senate Judiciary Committtee.

And in national issues, the SRA poll say[s] an overwhelmingly that 21 percent of North Dakota voters have Kavanaugh as their biggest concern.

True, particularly among North Dakotan women:

Heitkamp voted against Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court on Saturday, October 6, so it will be most interesting to see how that plays out in November.

Her opponent, Rep. Kevin Cramer:

called Ford’s accusations “absurd” and criticized Democrats for orchestrating a campaign against the nominee.

“At some point Brett Kavanaugh deserves due process,” Cramer said in a radio interview. “You can’t just stage these allegations to delay the Supreme Court.”

On October 3, the New York Post reported that the Kavanaugh nomination process had galvanised Republican voters. Again, this was written before the confirmation vote took place:

Whatever the outcome of the immediate contest, it’s increasingly clear that Democrats and the media establishment made an enormous miscalculation by waging total war against Kavanaugh and his family

Whatever disputes we have on our own side, the thinking on the right now goes, we have to set them aside and stop a politics of personal destruction, fueled by a moral panic and an uncritical mainstream media that sees itself as an adjunct of the anti-Trump resistance.

These forces have combined to turn Kavanaugh into a folk hero, a stand-in for every American who has found himself falsely accused, or railroaded by malicious hearsay, or facing an unfeeling bureaucracy that treats juvenile missteps as unforgivable sins …

The result of all this: Republicans are now more fired up about the November midterm elections than Democrats. NPR reported Wednesday: “In July, there was a 10-point gap between the number of Democrats and Republicans saying the November elections were ‘very important.’ Now, that is down to 2 points, a statistical tie.”

This is particularly true for Republican women:

Crazed Democrat reactions to Kavanaugh have also had a big effect in Nevada — and across the country. Breitbart reports that support for Nevada’s Republican candidates has improved noticeably over the past few weeks.

Nationally:

A recent NBC News survey found that Republicans across the nation have matched Democrat interest in the midterm election.

Former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus recently contended that the Kavanaugh effect will give Republicans an extra boost in the midterm elections.

“Something incredible has happened over the last couple of weeks, and it’s called the Kavanaugh effect on Republican voters,” said Priebus.

“Before Kavanaugh, Democrats were at a ten [in enthusiasm] to defeat Trump. Republicans were at like a six. They were happy with the economy,” Priebus added. “They were happy with the wins that we had. But they weren’t at the level they needed to be. Well, now they are at a ten. So the effect is the Democrats didn’t go above ten. They are at ten. And now, the Republicans are at a ten. And so you get the juice that you need to run the machinery.”

On Friday, October 5, I heard a substantial part of the lengthy speech that Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) made regarding Kavanaugh. With its many historic references, it was her way of saying she was voting ‘Yes’ for his appointment to the Supreme Court.

Regardless of what Kavanaugh’s opponents said about her …

… Collins’s speech played well with sensible women voters who did not believe Christine Blasey Ford’s nebulous accusations:

Radical Dem water carriers are doing their side no favours by harassing Collins, especially privately. On Monday, October 15, a suspicious envelope arrived at her home. Her husband was there at the time. CBS News in Boston has the story:

It was unclear who sent the letter and why. But critics have hurled threats at Collins recently over her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Outside the house, a Bangor Daily News photographer captured an image of a person in a hazmat suit holding an envelope in a plastic bag. Later, the FBI arrived, along with vans carrying people in military uniforms, the newspaper reported.

Law enforcement officials were analyzing the contents of the letter. An FBI spokeswoman said Monday evening that preliminary tests on the envelope indicated there was no threat to the public.

Independent Sen. Angus King of Maine, who voted against Kavanaugh, came to his fellow senator’s defense.

“Regardless of any political differences, @SenatorCollins, her family, and her staff should not have to be subjected to these threats — there’s just no place for it in our discourse,” he tweeted.

Absolutely agree.

Here is more Kavanaugh polling …

… and more polling (‘Harvad’ should be ‘Harvard’):

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) thought the anti-Kavanaugh craziness resembled a Salem witch trial:

Crazed leftists were consumed with KDS (Kavanaugh Derangement Syndrome) and TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome). This tweet is too filthy to display.

Here’s one I can show:

The design lead at Google had to delete one of his tweets, although he kept an anti-Evangelical one and an anti-conservative one up for display. As for the one he deleted:

In the end, it was all good. Thanks, Dems!

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) thanked the Dems for energising the Republicans:

We can only hope that everyone fired up over Kavanaugh is ready to go out and VOTE REPUBLICAN between now and November 6.

Remember …

Please help President Trump Make America — and the world — Great Again!

On Wednesday, October 10, 2018, President Trump appeared at a rally in Erie, Pennsylvania, in support of Republican candidate for Senate, Lou Barletta:

It was yet another high-energy Trump rally, inside …

… and outside:

Fortunately, jumbotrons were provided for those who could not get in:

Trump always thanks the crowds via Twitter:

This year, he is emphasising the importance of voting in the mid-terms (content — Trump’s speech — will be available if you click on the tweet, which will open in a new tab):

This is one of Trump’s new angles:

Millie Weaver of Infowars interviewed several self-proclaimed ex-Democrats after the rally. This is an instructive 10-and-a-half minute video, especially for my readers who do not live in the United States:

Most of the people interviewed had voted Democrat in several elections, had voted for Obama at least once and came to realise the Democrats were not making America great again. They came to realise that Donald Trump was the only candidate who spoke out and up for them. One teenage girl noticed that Erie was starting to look better again since he became president.

A union man said he supports Trump because the unions weren’t preserving American jobs for their members. He said that he had seen more and more jobs go overseas.

A teenage girl, possibly just out of high school, said that she started to research Trump because the negative coverage about him piqued her interest. She discovered that Trump wasn’t at all the person the media portrayed. Her mother says she managed to ‘red pill’ the whole family.

Others reported that they lost close relationships with family and friends for supporting Trump. How sad.

A black man said that he was sick of the identity politics that the Dems go in for; he judges candidates by what they say and do and refuses to support Democrats just because he is an ethnic minority.

A young university student says that he was left-wing until he started looking at the Dem stance on gun control. He says that the Second Amendment is fundamental to American rights as citizens.

More and more people are waking up to the dirty tricks that the Democrats play. On Thursday, October 11, The Hill reported that Tucker Carlson’s book, Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution, toppled Watergate journalist Bob Woodward’s Fear from the top spot on the New York Times best-seller list. That is excellent news indeed.

The president tweeted his congratulations at the weekend:

The Hill noted:

Carlson consistently finishes in the top 3 from a ratings perspective in the cable news race along with Fox’s Sean Hannity and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. In the third quarter of this year, Carlson averaged 2.78 million viewers.

Carlson’s one of the good guys. Unfortunately, most pundits, presenters and reporters in Big Media are anything but. LoveBreedsAccountability says that most media people are helping to inflame violence against respectable Americans:

The violent, angry grassroots Democrats we’re seeing attack people and break laws, are inspired and enabled by the media. And because they’re liberals, they’re that awkward combination of ridiculous, terrifying and hilarious that make for great campaign ads. So President Trump and the GOP are using those mobs as evidence of why you should vote Republican in the midterms. And it’s working. The midterms are shaping up to be a lot more competitive than anyone thought, and so the media is pushing back hard against the “mob” characterization.

The post included a video clip from the Washington Free Beacon‘s Andrew Kugle who observed that the media are now trying to excise the word ‘mob’ from their coverage:

There’s also this comment from another Twitter user:

Indeed.

Eric Holder, Obama’s first attorney general, is the latest to suggest violence against Republicans:

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-Louisiana), who was shot and seriously injured at a practice session for the annual Congressional baseball game in June 2017, tweeted:

It took months for Scalise to recover from the injuries inflicted upon him by a shooter from Illinois. Therefore, he knows whereof he speaks.

The GOP has released a new ad with a montage of left-wing violence against not only Americans but also Canadians. Breitbart reports:

The new GOP ad also features a recording of a leftist man attacking a woman demonstrating against abortion in Toronto, Canada.

Democrats and their news media allies took umbrage with Trump’s aforementioned description of them, expressing support for left-wing and partisan Democrat activists who harass Republican politicians and their supporters.

However, this year has been very bad for Republicans, including women (emphasis mine):

Various Republicans have accused Democrats of inciting politically motivated violence — deliberately or negligently — through rhetoric. Sen. Rand Paul’s wife, Kelley Paul, recently told Breitbart News that she now sleeps with a loaded gun by her bed as a security precaution following threats against her husband, herself, and her family.

It cannot be emphasised how important it is for decent Americans to go out and vote in the mid-terms.

Vote Republican: the future of the United States and the world depends on it.
