Q: What do you call a Biden voter crushed by student-loan debt?

A: Sucker.

Good thing, too, since if he had canceled their loans, they’d be suckers with a 1099-C on the way, promising a hefty tax bill. All those $150,000 Woke Studies degrees would become taxable income with the stroke of a pen.

(not so coincidentally, there’s a new bill in Congress to allow student loans to be discharged in bankruptcy…)

Does unconstitutionally seizing the treaty power from Congress count as “high crimes and misdemeanors”? Asking for a friend.

It takes a village without a constable


Most of the whistleblowers, eyewitnesses, videos, and actual indictments alleging widespread election fraud do not point to a sinister secret cabal of mustache-twirling villains. They point to a bunch of little people, secure in the belief that when their side wins, there will be no consequences, even if they get caught.

Hopefully they’re wrong. That “social worker” who thought it was a great idea to vote 67 extra times in the names of her patients? Now facing 134 counts of election fraud. In Texas.

Was there also a larger, more organized fraud, the sort that results in thousands of late-arriving ballots with nothing on them but a vote for Biden? That allegation is before the courts, where it belongs. As are others.

we will heal the divide in our nation.
Also Democrats:
we’re making a list of collaborators, and they will be dealt with.

Dear Donald J Trump,

Until January 20, I think your priorities should be:

  1. appointing judges,

  2. signing executive orders,

  3. declassifying everything.

Not necessarily in that order.

Let your legal team handle both the apparent shenanigans and the confirmed ones.

“When did it stop?”

Which reminds me, for all the folks who simultaneously insist that Trump (and before him W) stole an election while there wasn’t even a hint of fraud in the elections of Democrats, when did election fraud go away?

We know it used to exist in America. Lots of it. At all levels. We know it still exists all over the world, everywhere that there’s even a chance at scoring cash or power by bending, breaking, or shooting holes in the rules. We still remember when Democrats were shouting from the rooftops that Diebold voting machines would deliver phony Republican victories.

But it’s all gone now. Never happens. Certainly never in enough numbers to sway a major election.

When did it stop? How was it stopped? How do we confirm that it hasn’t started up again? How do we ensure that it doesn’t go undetected?

The answer is to do a lot of things that Democrats are violently opposed to, like auditing the voter rolls every year, requiring ID to vote, requiring ID to register to vote, cross-referencing registrations between all states, openly and transparently auditing the results, etc. Funny old world.

Speaking of voter ID, we’re told that potentially millions of citizens would be disenfranchised by an ID requirement at the polls. Yet the people making this argument aren’t willing to help them get IDs.

After all, these millions of citizens without ID are unable to get a job, buy liquor, enter a courthouse, rent a car, open a bank account, board a plane, start a business, take out a loan, etc, etc, etc. People opposed to voter ID are somehow fine leaving them out of the rest of society, as long as they can vote.

Fair is fair


I think the amount of time Trump gets to contest this election should be no more than the Democrats took contesting the last one: four years.

😁

Republic, Bananas


To vote in person in California, as I just did, you must not only surrender the ballot that was mailed to you on the sole authority of the governor rather than by any law, but also the empty return envelope that came with it. No voter ID, though; that’s crazy talk.

Running scared…


Just now, I received a spam text message from MoveOn. It included a picture with the words “HELP US FIGHT TRUMP’S SECRET WEAPON”, and the following sentences:

Hi, John, it’s Colt with MoveOn. New data shows that Donald Trump is using YouTube to gain an under-the-radar advantage in the election. As people stay home and stream videos more than ever, YouTube may play an even more influential role than Facebook.

To defeat Trump, we must counter his YouTube advantage. Will you chip in $3 a week to help MoveOn create videos and use advanced analytics to precision-target high-potential voters in 17 battleground states? [URL deleted]

(Reply STOP to unsubscribe.)

Note that they don’t ask for $3/week “until the election is over”; this is an ongoing donation that they hope you’ll just forget about.

And despite clear evidence that Big Tech has their lips firmly planted on Joe Biden’s ass, with a bit of tongue left over for Kamala Harris’, they’re really, really hoping nobody’s heard about that, even after the events of last week.

True Colors


Democrats worried about Joe Biden’s mental functionality have been suggesting that he be replaced at the convention with a stronger candidate, like NY Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Who just signed an executive order to have the National Guard sieze medical equipment from upstate hospitals to serve New York City. But don’t worry, it’s only 10% 20% of their ventilators and protective equipment. And he promises to give it all back when he’s done with it.
