The Truth About Global Warming & Climate Change

James A. Watkins is an entrepreneur, musician, and a writer with four non-fiction books and hundreds of magazine articles read by millions.

Global Warming

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes says the world will end in 12 years if we do not address Climate Change/Global Warming with her Green New Deal. This has been roundly debunked even by leftist climate change promoting scientists.

Other Leftists/Globalists have suggested anyone who disagrees with the Global Warming/Climate Change Agenda should be arrested, or at least censored.

The average temperature on Earth is currently 61 degrees. A Swedish scientific study has found that the planet was about eight degrees warmer in ancient Roman times, and again in the Middle Ages than it is today. This confounds the propaganda that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are the main drivers of global warming. Scientific research supports the view that there is nothing unusual, unnatural or unprecedented about earth's current level of warmth.

NOAA released studies recently proving that there has actually been no global warming for at least 19 years. However, there has been severe global warming on Mars and Venus. Do you think man caused that?

NASA suggests global cooling, not global warming, is on the way. In the last two years, global average temperatures dropped 0.56°C. NASA scientists say, "Humanity is facing a long, cold winter which could see temperatures across the planet plunge to depressing lows. We fear that sunspot activity on the surface of our star has dropped so low that it could herald the arrival of a uniquely grim mini Ice Age."

I have Found the Secret Source of Global Warming

Even if it was True that the Planet is Warming Can Americans Stop it?

Even if it were true that global warming is about to cause a great catastrophe, listen to the blunt truths John Kerry has acknowledged:

"The fact is that even if every American biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what — that still wouldn't be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world.

"If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions — remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions — it wouldn't be enough, not when more than 65 percent of the world's carbon pollution comes from the developing world."

Globalists Are Behind It

The Club of Rome, a think tank for Globalists with close ties to the Climate Change Agenda, stated on page 75 of its publication ‘The First Global Revolution,' way back in 1990:

"In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself." The passage appears under the subtitle, ‘The Common Enemy Of Humanity Is Man.'

Bill Nye the Science Guy – who is not a scientist but a comedian playing a scientist – produced a video that is widely used by public school teachers to indoctrinate the young—to scare them actually—to believe man is killing the planet and we've got to stop him now.

According to Nye—whom teachers tell children is the authority on all things scientific—flooding, thunderstorms, fires, tornadoes, blizzards, and even terrorism are caused by global warming. If it is dry, it is global warming. If it is wet, it is global warming. If it is hot, it is global warming. If it is cold, it is global warming. What this is is the use of science—phony science at that—as a political tool to push a particular agenda: Globalism — a New World Order.

Was Al Gore Right?

Making dire predictions is easy. Al Gore's 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth and the 2008 ABC special Earth 2100 made some prognostications we ought to revisit. By this year, sea levels were supposed to have risen by 20 feet. LOL. The ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland should be gone. Greenland is the same, Antarctica has gained ice. Sea levels have been slowly rising ever since man has measured sea levels.

Gore said hurricanes like Katrina would be commonplace by now. The opposite happened. From the day Gore made his prediction, 12 years went by with no major hurricanes hitting the United States. Tornadoes were supposed to become daily occurrences, but there are fewer of them now. Polar Bears are supposed to be extinct, but there are more today than when Al Gore was born. The Arctic was going to be completely melted by now, but it has gained more ice.

New York City should be underwater by now, but there it is. Gasoline is supposed to be $9 a gallon and milk $13 a gallon. Shorelines were supposed to have moved way inland, wiping out ports and coastal cities all across America. We were going to be plagued by pestilence and disease. Has it happened?

Don't Do What I Do; Do What I Command You To Do

The fact is Al Gore not long ago bought a mansion on the same beach he claimed was about to disappear, an odd investment if he believes what he says. An odd place to live if he believes it is about to be swept away.

Why do leftists congregate on the coasts when according to global warming the coasts will soon be under water? Why aren't they selling before property values plummet or before the property disappears altogether? Why aren't they moving inland to escape the apocalypse? Because they know Climate Change is bunk.

Al Gore and his fellow hypocrite Hollywood stars leave gigantic carbon footprints with their massive multiple mansions and private jets while they lecture us on all we should do without, such as basic transportation and heat.

Just one of Gore's mansions burns 21 times the fossil fuels of the average home. In one month, his Nashville residence used as much energy as I do in three years. Al Gore uses as much electricity as six families use per year just to heat his swimming pool.

Falsified Data

There is no data proving that global warming is taking place and no evidence that humankind is changing the temperature of Earth. There is hard evidence suggesting that changes in climate are determined by the sun—you know, that massive ball of heat and radiation at the center of our solar system the size of 1.3 million Earths.

In fact, the Left, with its globalist agenda, has been falsifying evidence to pull off a gigantic global warming hoax. A brand new peer-reviewed bombshell study concludes that three key global temperature data sets used in recent climate change models have been ‘adjusted'—that's falsified to folks like us—in such a way as to not be ‘a valid representation of reality.'

The study, entitled ‘On the Validity of NOAA, NASA and Hadley CRU Global Average Surface Temperature Data & The Validity of EPA's CO2 Endangerment Finding,' states:

"The EPA's conclusions based off of all three GAST data sets were ‘invalidated.' Nearly all of the warming shown in the data sets are accounted for by the ‘adjustments' made by scientists to past temperatures. The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality.

"In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data. Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever — despite current claims of record-setting warming."

Obama Said 99.5% or 97% of Scientists Agree about Global Warming: But was that True?

Obama claimed that 99.5% of scientists and experts believe human beings cause climate change. There is no study claiming that 99.5% of scientists and experts agree with the climate change thesis, and even the - widely quoted in the media - study claiming a 97% consensus of scientists is total bunk.

Investigative journalists at Popular Technology reported that the '97% Study' falsely classified scientists' papers as supporting the global warming hypothesis - according to the scientists who published the papers. A more extensive examination by the New American reported that out of the nearly 12,000 scientific papers evaluated, only 65 endorsed the alarmist position. That is less than 0.97%.

According to the American Thinker: "The famous statement of ‘97% of climate scientists agree that man's activities cause warming' is so fatuous and misleading as to be without value.

"It's the classic example of a popular, neat-sounding cliché being repeated often enough that it's accepted as ‘true,' regardless of the actual facts.

"When one drills down deep into the study that produced the 97% figure, it turns out that it's not 97% of 12,000 climate scientists as popularly reported, but instead 77 of 79 self-identified climate scientists who had already taken a position in favor of human-caused warming and had also published more than 50% of their peer-reviewed papers. That's where the 97% comes from -- 77 out of 79, not 97% of 12,000!"

Maybe the Sun Affects our Climate

"Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewed Organizational Studies.

"By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.

"The survey results show geoscientists (also known as earth scientists) and engineers hold similar views as meteorologists.

"Two recent surveys of meteorologists revealed similar skepticism of alarmist global warming claims." ~ FORBES

Carbon Dioxide: The New Boogeyman

Carbon Dioxide has become the Boogeyman for the Left. However, is it a bad thing? Is it even a pollutant? Isn't it non-toxic?

Plants cannot live and flourish without carbon dioxide. I breathe it all the time with no ill effects. People with greenhouses pump it into their nurseries, tripling the amount of it so that their plants will grow stronger and healthier.

The current level of CO2 is 95% lower than at earlier times in our planet's history. United Nations climate scientists say even higher levels of CO2 would be better for us, "beneficial for both humanity and the biosphere generally."

Who is Polluting the Planet?

The Left loves to paint America as the culprit behind global pollution. However, is it true? No. According to the World Health Organization, the United States is among the cleanest countries in the world. Our air is "significantly cleaner in fact than the air in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, the UK, Japan, Austria, and France."

America's air is much less polluted "than that of any other country in the G7, except Canada with its scant population."

America has more cities than any other nation among the least polluted in the world. The most polluted cities are in India, China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and Pakistan. Sixty percent of cities in Europe fail to meet air pollution standards, three times the percentage in America.

The United States gave $1 Billion to the Global Green Climate Fund, but the world's top polluters gave nothing. China and India are the world's worst polluters by far, with China accounting for 28% of the world's pollution all by itself. As noted by the Heritage Foundation:

"For every ton of reduced pollution the United States emits, China and India produce almost ten more tons. This means it doesn't really matter how much America reduces its greenhouse gases because China and India cancel out any and all progress we make.

"Those who think they are helping save the planet by purchasing an electric car or putting a solar panel on their roof, or trying to shut down coal production in the United States are barking up the wrong tree. If we want to stop greenhouse gases, there is no way to make progress without China and India on board—which they clearly are not."

President Trump Leads the Way to a Cleaner Earth

Since the Election of President Trump, America has led the world in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Without a carbon tax, without cap and trade, without signing the Kyoto Treaty, and after pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, America reduced emissions more than any country in the world, according to the BP Statistical Review of World Energy. Meanwhile, the countries that signed the Paris Agreement have broken all their promises.

Democrats wailed that President Trump was "going kill the planet," but emissions have decreased under his administration. However, the European Union has significantly increased emissions of carbon dioxide since Trump won the election.

Paris Accord Flop

Paris Accord Flop

President Trump Pulled Out of the Paris Climate Accord

Thank God that President Trump got us out of the Paris Agreement.

American taxpayers would have been on the hook for $1 Trillion per year. The biggest polluters on the planet would have paid zero. Our natural gas production and manufacturing would have been cut 20-25%, along with a 70% cut in the production of clean coal, iron ore, and steel.

The price of everything would have gone up, especially energy. Millions of jobs would have been lost. It was a horrible deal that only could be liked by those who hate America and all it stands for.

The Paris Accord was a deal not to save the environment but to make the United States the piggy bank of the world. We got nothing from it. Wouldn't you rather have us keep our jobs, low energy costs and figure out a way to increase making clean coal like we've been doing?

Meanwhile, the biggest polluter, China, didn't have to cut emissions until the year 2030 and can produce as many coal plants as they want. The next biggest polluter is India, and they only agreed to that treaty because they are getting hundreds of billions of dollars over the next few years to be in the deal.

We have some of the cleanest air and water in the world, some of the highest standards, and we have to dish out Trillions to other countries while at the same time losing millions of our own jobs and prices skyrocketing here? Oh, by the way, this deal, if followed by every country precisely as written, would drop the temperature 2/10ths of one-degree Celsius by the year 2100. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?

Oh. Trumps buddy. Well, you should get all the Trump love you need there. And Scott is around. I’ve seen him in forums. With this new system, you can only comment on hubs from the feed. If Scott doesn’t catch a comment on here when it happens, he’s not likely to see it. No more clicking on hubs and being able to Comment, as I’m sure you know. I guess Randy has moved completely to mewe.

Hp is slowly dying and maven taking over. Lot of people wanted it, think comments are stupid anyway....

But it’s not true. Good dialogue is very important.

And Hp was one of the best....

Well, you should hit the forums more. It’s the only place left to exchange views here now.

Don’t bother with Parler.....it’s like a bunch of 12 yr olds, imo.

I have dropped Fox but not for OAN. I have moved over to NewsMax TV. Whatever happened to Belford?

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on November 24, 2020:

Now Kemp passed a law you have to have a car registered in your name to vote.....l

WHO suppresses votes?

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on November 24, 2020:

This showed up on my you tube feed......have you abandoned Fox for OAN, like many Trumpers?

But the head of Dominion shuts you down. Not that you listen, but he would know better than Qanon.

And I’m sorry.....if this was a dem gvt and you were complaining, it would make more sense. This is trumps gvt. And they say there is no voter fraud. I mean, trumps kookoo bird lawyer tried to say republicans in Georgia cheated to elect Biden! C’mon.......it’s lunacy.

It’s flooding the zone with sh*t, as Bannon suggested.

And the more sh*t you believe, the more they peddle.

Trump lost big. We the people came out in droves to remove this fascist coup. It’s over. Accept it, and move on. Sore loser.....isn’t that what I was called? Yes. And, if I didn’t like it, I could move. Well.......

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 24, 2020:

For years, Democrats have been making voter fraud easier. Here are some of the methods they've used:

• Motor voter registration (people are registered when they get a driver's license), creating a massive number of registered voters, most of whom don't vote.

• Refusing to clean up voter registration rolls, creating millions of registrations tied to people who died or relocated.

• Banning ID requirements at polling places.

• Banning poll workers from comparing signatures on ballot sign-up sheets or mail-in envelopes to those on record.

• Same-day registration.

• Extending voting to a month-long period.

• Absentee voting for anyone who desires.

• Mailing ballots to every registered voter.

• Voting only by mail.

• Ballot-harvesting, which allows activists to collect ballots from voters and submit them. Harvesters can fill out ballots or dispose of ballots with which they disagree.

• Judges and bureaucrats extending the voting deadline.

All of the above Democrat initiatives make the following types of fraud easier, particularly when paired with chicanery at the polling site, such as banning poll-observers:

• People voting using another person's ballot.

• Postal workers backdating mailed in ballots.

• Insiders obtaining and completing blank ballots en masse.

• Repeatedly feeding the same ballots into voting machines.

• Throwing out Trump votes.

• Completing incomplete ballots.

• Faking same-day registrations of non-existent voters.

• Throwing out mail-in envelopes to make it impossible to winnow out fraudulent ballots.

Peculiar patterns have shown up only in swing states where Trump was winning overwhelmingly, only to have his votes instantaneously transferred to Biden or to receive zero votes from mail-in ballots. Even Democrat-heavy mail-in ballots wouldn't behave that way. These are statistical impossibilities. In contested states, in the middle of the night, Trump stopped getting any votes and then lost votes or saw them transferred to Biden, another impossibility that can only be accounted for by computer coding. In Georgia, the Democrats went so far as to fake a water main problem to set up this fraud.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 24, 2020:

Have you noticed that whenever there is a "glitch" in electronic voting or tabulating discovered, the "glitch" always hurts Trump? How come there was no story election night of “100,000 new votes for Trump suddenly appeared at 4:00AM!” In Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia, we have seen counties that used Dominion Voting System report "glitches" or "irregularities" that, once fixed, flipped results. Votes were wrongfully attributed to Joe Biden and, once flipped, restored the lead to Trump in those areas.

Notice that there are no anti-Biden glitches or irregularities. They all end up hurting Donald Trump...

Dominion was also caught uploading a software update to their machines on the night before the election. This is a big deal. All electronic voting machines, regardless of jurisdiction, must be certified. That process requires neutral observers, or in some states even party officials, to test out the machine and certify that it is accurately counting ballots.

In Michigan, a Dominion contractor has now sworn, under oath, that she saw batches of ballots being counted multiple times to run up the count for Joe Biden. In case you don't know, an affidavit is a sworn written statement made under oath. If someone lies on an affidavit, it is no different than if they took the stand during a court case and lied under oath. The crime for lying in an affidavit is called "perjury" and it carries a 5-year federal prison sentence.

Dominion Voting Systems VP Eric Coomer is rabidly anti-Trump and pro-Antifa. He was overheard on a phone call reassuring other Antifa members not to worry and that Trump would not become President because 'he made sure of it.'

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 24, 2020:

The Million MAGA March took place last Saturday. On the one hand, there were tens of thousands of Trump supporters who showed up. They were cheerful, left no mess, sang, chanted “USA,” and prayed. Many children were there with their families. On the other hand, the BLM and Antifa crowd appeared too, when many Trump supporters had gone home. Like hyenas picking off the young in a herd, the BLM and Antifa supporters brutally attacked people, including children and the elderly.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 24, 2020:

The fact that President Trump received more than half of the white female vote is nothing short of astounding compared to the narrative of the past four years: That white, suburban women were leaving Trump and the Republican Party in droves.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 24, 2020:

Over the past nearly 40 years, presidential elections have observed an intriguing phenomenon: 19 counties in the nation have always voted for the winner, be it Republican or Democrat. They’ve been dubbed “bellwether counties” and until this year, no president since at least Ronald Reagan has missed even one. In 2020, all but one of the bellwethers picked President Donald Trump by a margin of some 16 points on average. Only one, Clallam County in Washington, went for former Vice President Joe Biden and only by about a three-point margin.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 24, 2020:

Leslie ~ The poll was by Rasmussen. And no, I do not believe that about Governor Kemp. What I said about that poll didn't get the headline, of course, but it is revealed further down: 75 percent of Republicans believe it is very likely (61 percent) or somewhat likely (14 percent) that the election was stolen from Trump. 30 percent of Democrats believe it is very likely (20 percent) or somewhat likely (10 percent) that it was. Let me repeat, nearly a third of Democrats believe it is likely that the election was stolen from President Trump. That’s a remarkable number. Huge, in fact.

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on November 23, 2020:

“The publicly-stated position of President Trump's legal team is that the reason Trump lost Georgia is because Georgia's Republican Gov. Brian Kemp has been bribed by a Venezuelan front company in cahoots with the CIA to throw elections to Communists.“

******

You believe this?

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on November 23, 2020:

Found it.

Gateway pundit:

“IT’S OFFICIAL: President Trump Is the Most Popular Sitting President in US History – He Set Record for Most Votes for a President and Most Votes Ever for a Republican …And That’s With Fraud.”

“The Democrats, the Deep State and their foreign accomplices, should have learned an important lesson, if you are going to try and steal an election, choose a President other than the most popular President in history.

We don’t really know at this time how many votes President Trump won in this election. We do know more fraud occurred in this election than any modern election in history. But based on the current totals for President Trump, which are likely understated in the millions, this election was the greatest win for any sitting President ever.”

*********

This is but one site......and not even the craziest. This is the stuff that passes as truth in your world?

Let me ask, do the rest of us even exist? I mean, if you can dismiss 80 million of us with such ease, I can see we really don’t.

Trumpland; Where what we say becomes reality. No matter what the reality really is.

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on November 23, 2020:

How many thought 2016 was stolen from Hillary? How’d that go?

I do believe the term was sore loser. Move on. And there was MUCH more reason then.

Hillary conceded that night. Called Trump and congratulated him that night. Even though she had 3 mil more in the popular vote, and exit polls in her favor.

Trump, what does he have? Again, less popular vote, but this time, solid loss in the EC.

3rd recount of Georgia......seriously?

And all these stupid ridiculous theories..... Hugo Chavez? Whatever it is they say.

It’s been 4 years of abuse by this mobster, with your blessings. Any dem who thinks Trump won is no dem in my mind. Just another brainwashed fool.

Oh, and where do you get that info, anyway?

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 23, 2020:

75% of Republicans believe the election was stolen from President Trump. But that ain't the shocking part. 30% of DEMOCRATS agree!

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on November 15, 2020:

Odd that you would have a “satanist baby killer” as a friend in the first place.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 15, 2020:

A Democrat close friend of mine (though oddly not as close since he learned of my support of President Trump a few years back) recently posted comments about "beginning to heal the nation" and "All of Us Together," to which I simply breathed a heavy sigh. Believing themselves to be the winners, despite the actual decision not yet being final, they are now climbing to the tip-top of the Moral High Ground to show how understanding and graceful they are, once again elevating the political discourse of the country to new heights of class and civility.

They seem to be conveniently forgetting the last four and a half years of their collective temper tantrum, wherein on an hourly basis they said about President Trump and anyone who dared support him the most vile and disgusting things imaginable. They called him racist, sexist, homophobe, Islamophobe, xenophobe. He was a Nazi, even Hitler himself. He was an a-hole, a sexual assaulter, a white supremacist. Prominent Democrat politicians called on Congress to "Impeach the MF-er," and the Hollywood elite talked giddily about blowing up the White House and featured Trump lookalikes in fantasy assassination scenarios in their music videos. The severed head of POTUS was held up by a D-list washed up celebrity as an "artistic expression."

Day after day, the airwaves were full of bile and hate spewed by people who simultaneously trumpeted themselves as tolerant and accepting, claiming they were "resisting" the alleged but never evidenced hatred coming from President Trump. So if you're keeping track at home, the plan was to fight hate with even more hate! It's the same approach that the left takes to fighting racism: Burn Loot Murder activists and Antifa toddlers all over the country have shown us the wisdom of this approach for the last eight months.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 15, 2020:

36 percent of Biden voters were not aware of the evidence behind claims that Joe Biden was personally involved in his son Hunter’s business deals with China. Thirteen percent of those voters (4.6 percent of Biden’s total vote) said that if they had known the facts, they would not have voted for Biden.

Such a shift away from Biden would have given Trump the election. In the critical weeks before Election Day, Big Tech and the legacy media took extreme measures to bury the unfolding story of Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s personal ties to his son Hunter’s notorious business deals in China, Ukraine, and elsewhere.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 15, 2020:

The plan was simple. Saturate the media with polls showing a blue wave and an inevitable victory. Discourage people from voting in person. And then, after tabulating the paltry votes of those who defied the media to vote in person, dump all the tampered, altered, and harvested ballots for Biden in key cities.

Once again, Democrats had overreached, committed a massive crime, and have been left with no choice except to ride the tiger. That’s what happened last time when the Obama administration allied with the Clinton campaign to eavesdrop on its political opponents. And then doubled down with investigations and indictments, not of the perpetrators, but the victims.

Despite the blatant irregularities in key battleground states, they’re doubling down again. The American Coup is underway. In classic Leninist fashion, its initial goal is to control the propaganda and the process. The media has declared Biden to be the winner while mass celebratory gatherings cheer the new order. Big Tech censors any skepticism about the election.

President Trump also went into Election Day with clear leads in mail-in ballots in key battleground states, including Wisconsin and Michigan. The tide of Biden ballots that arrived during the night resulted in implausible turnout figures. The photos, videos, and whistleblower accounts of poll and postal workers tampering with ballots didn’t take long to show up. And just as quickly to be censored.

The odd numbers mostly came out of urban areas run by notoriously corrupt political machines. It’s no coincidence that the areas at the center of the vote fraud controversy, Philly, Detroit, and Atlanta, are also some of the most corrupt cities in the country with plenty of jailed officials. All of them Democrats.

This year, Michael “Ozzie” Myers, a former Philly Congressman, was charged by the Department of Justice with "fraudulently stuffing the ballot boxes for specific candidates in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary elections, bribery of an election official, falsification of records, voting more than once in federal elections, and obstruction of justice." For just one example.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 15, 2020:

It’s like the Geico commercial: “When you’re in a horror movie, you make poor decisions… It’s what you do.” When you’re a Democrat, you steal votes; it’s what you do.

It’s perplexing how many otherwise sensible people are surprised by the crap the Party of Plunder is pulling this year to elect the Walking Dead – like counting ballots in rooms off-limits to Republican poll watchers and miraculously finding uncounted ballots, just when they’re needed most.

But, come on, when was the last time the Party of Boss Tweed, Landslide Lyndon, the Cook County machine and hanging chads didn’t try to hijack an election? It’s in their bones.

Democrats are the party of big-city machines notorious for their ability to produce ballots like a rabbit pulled from a magician’s hat. Boston had a four-term mayor whose campaign slogan was, “Vote often and early for James Michael Curley.” His last term was interrupted by a prison sentence for mail fraud.

Since theft is a foundational principle of the Democrat Party, is it so surprising then that they would try to steal elections too?

Democrats are the party of lawlessness. It’s no coincidence that Antifa and other progressive mobs target cities with Democrat mayors – New York, DC, Chicago and Seattle among them. Urban anarchists know that Democrats won’t try very hard to restore order – especially when they’re burning, looting and committing mayhem in the name of a progressive cause, like “racial justice.” They release criminals and handcuff the police. District attorneys elected with Soros-money won’t prosecute rioters. Mayors and city councils want to de-fund the police.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 15, 2020:

Last week, we were told “There is no evidence of fraud.” Now the phrase is “There’s no widespread evidence of fraud.” As the sworn affidavits and statistical impossibilities pile up, the story will soon be: “The fraud didn’t change the results.” In the meantime, the social media giants and mainstream media are fighting to suppress emerging evidence of fraud.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 15, 2020:

The exit poll asked the question: "Do you work full-time for pay?"

Voters who said no went for Biden over Trump by 57% to 42%. By contrast, voters who said they did work full time picked Trump over Biden 51% to 47%.

Then there was the divide between married and unmarried people. The exit poll asked voters: "Are you currently married?"

People who said they are not "currently" married voted overwhelmingly for Biden. He won 58% of their vote, while Trump won only 40%.

Meanwhile, Trump won 53% of married voters, while Biden won only 46%.

It did not matter whether the married person was a male or female. A majority of both husbands and wives voted for Trump over Biden.

Biden only won majorities among voters who said they rarely or never attend church or religious services.

Among voters who attend church or religious services once a week or more, Trump won 61% to 37%.

Among voters who said they "never" go to church, Biden beat Trump 63% to 35%.

Let’s play a little thought game.....

Pretend Obama is still president, and we know he’s going out— his term is over, but Hillary says, as sec of state, and overseas: “we look forward to a smooth transition to the next Obama administration”.......

This, after Obama had built a wall around the White House, and removed top officials at the Pentagon.

Reaction.......

Hahaha?

Calm indifference?

Blasé?

“Doesn't it seem odd that in Ballard County Kentucky the State Board of Elections shows 2285 registered REPUBLICAN voters as of Oct 2020 yet 3155 people voted for Mitch McConnell?

Ballard County also has 3966 registered Dems but Amy McGrath only got 936 votes?

In Bath County Kentucky with 2478 registered REPUBLICAN voters McConnell got 3537 votes?

And with 6730 registered Dems in Bath McGrath only got 1827 votes?

What are the chances that 1000+ registered Dems voted for Mitch & almost 5000 Dems didn't vote for Amy?

Elliott County Kentucky has 860 registered Republicans yet Mitch got 1958 votes?

Many other counties had this type of anomalies where Mitch got way more votes than they have Republican voters!

Not only is there a weird pattern of Mitch getting more votes than a county has registered Republicans but Kentucky hasn't counted all their Absentee votes.

655,000 people in Kentucky requested absentee ballots but only 329,869 were counted. What happened to the other 325,131?”

*******

Looks like Georgia isn’t the only state that needs checking.

I want all states where Repubs won checked for cheating!

Dems need to demand it.

It would explain how Mitch has such low approval ratings, but keeps getting elected.

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on November 11, 2020:

They say Trump won Alaska.....how are we to know?

And, the senate race was very close. How do we know republicans didn’t cheat?

We must count every state they trump wins. I don’t trust it at all.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 11, 2020:

500 affidavits have been signed, under penalty of felony perjury, by eyewitnesses to voter fraud, something never seen before in America.

Just for a few examples, a whistleblower in Nevada swore an affidavit declaring that he witnessed illegitimate processing of ballots as an election worker. Specifically, the whistleblower had been instructed to count ballots needing signature verification that lacked the requisite signatures. He was told by a supervisor — whom he names — to count them anyway. He was also told to ignore discrepancies with addresses. The affidavit makes clear that we’re not dealing with oversights or sloppiness. This was intentional criminal conduct.

Two observers who were at the TCF Center in Detroit during the absentee ballot counting process have signed affidavits that they witnessed workers create new voter files with information obtained from ballots. “I observed that none of the names on these new ballots were on the QVF or the Supplemental Sheets. I saw the computer operators at several counting boards manually adding the names and addresses of these thousands of ballots to the QVF system. When I asked what the possible justification was to counting ballots from unknown, unverified “persons”, I was told by election supervisors that the Wayne County Clerk’s Office had “checked them out.””

Poll workers in Wisconsin unlawfully altered thousands of mail-in ballots due to unlawful guidance from the state’s election commission. According to Wisconsin law, an absentee ballot requires that it be signed by a witness who also lists his or her address. Should the ballot not contain the a witness address, the ballot is disallowed. Clerks and vote counters in the state wrote in the witness signatures themselves. Election workers chose to write in the addresses because they were illegally advised to do so by the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC). The ballots are invalid. “The statute is very, very clear,” said retired Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman. “If an absentee ballot does not have a witness address on it, it’s not valid. That ballot is not valid.”

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 11, 2020:

Left-wing Democrats appealed for assistance in compiling lists of Trump supporters – an enemies list that reminds one of Stalin and Chairman Mao - so they could be held “accountable” for supporting President Donald Trump after the election. “Democratic socialist” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted: “Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?”

Michael Simon, a former staff member in Barack Obama’s administration, replied in the affirmative, linking to what he called the “Trump Accountability Project”: “Yes we are. Every Administration staffer, campaign staffer, bundler, lawyer who represented them — everyone.”

Jennifer Rubin, a Washington Post columnist and Never Trumper, tweeted that anyone challenging the 2020 election results should not only be disqualified from holding public office, but ostracized from society. “We have a list."

Pete Buttigieg staffer Emily Abrams directed the vengeful to the Trump Accountability Project. “If you know anyone who supported Trump, please add their names to our database. They will be dealt with in due course.”

The site is a self-described "permanent record" of those who elected the president, including Trump campaign staffers, Republican National Committee members, and affiliated PACs in 2016 or 2020. Individuals who donated a "significant amount" — $1000 or more — in efforts to re-elect the president and related campaign committees are also blacklisted. Others who worked in the Trump administration; endorsed the president in a public light; were appointed to federal boards, commissions, or the judiciary; and staffed law firms that represented the Trump name in any capacity are named.

And Biden says, “Let’s all be friends now.” Except you we have shipped to the Gulag, of course.

If and when the Leftists gain the upper hand in a Democrat administration, probably through extensive street violence, they will not hesitate to torture and murder their opponents, the way the victorious Castro revolutionaries, especially the bloodthirsty Che Guevara so idolized by American leftists, did.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 11, 2020:

In Antrim County, Michigan, ballots were counted for Democrats that were meant for Republicans causing a 6,000-vote swing against our candidates. The county clerk came forward and said tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the votes. Since then, we have now discovered that 47 counties use this same software in the same capacity. Antrim County had to hand count all of the ballots, and these counties that use this software needs to closely examine their results for similar discrepancies. After a discrepancy was found in Antrim County, updated results show President Trump, not Biden, won the county.

Democrats say it is ‘debunked’ because, and here is their statement: “The correct results always were and continue to be reflected on the tabulator totals tape and on the ballots themselves. Even if the error in the reported unofficial results had not been quickly noticed, it would have been identified during the county canvass.”

But that does not mean it is debunked. That means it happened as reported and was fixed after being discovered. Debunked would mean it never happened in the first place.

In another instance in Oakland County, a computer error led officials to declare Democrat Melanie Hartman the winner before they reversed it and declared incumbent Adam Kochenderfer, a Republican, the winner of the Oakland County’s 15th county commission District, the Detroit Free Press reported. Oakland County Director of Elections Joe Rozell told the paper that the error was due to a computer issue at a city clerk’s office. He didn’t elaborate on the issue or if it was the same software used in Antrim County.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 11, 2020:

POLL: 54% of Biden’s Voters Don’t Even Like Him! They were simply voting against President Trump because they despise America ("Burn that flag! A symbol of oppression"), Western Civilization ("Hey ho! Western Civ has got to go!"), Christianity ("Too many Christians in America and not enough lions"), the Free Exercise of Religion ("Christians should have no seat at the table"), Freedom of Speech ("Speech that offends me is 'violent' and people who use it should be arrested!"), and Free Enterprise ("End capitalism, and profit!").

President Trump got more votes from minorities than any Republican candidate since 1960 despite the daily drumbeat of the lie that he is a racist.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 11, 2020:

It was a very obvious pattern. The country goes to sleep and around 3 or 4 am, when everyone is sleeping, enough ballots get discovered to put Joe Biden ahead of Donald Trump in a swing state.

It happened in Georgia. After Donald Trump appeared to clearly win the state, county officials in and around Atlanta announced that they had found additional "absentee" votes. But instead of counting them on election night, they claimed that a "burst pipe" forced them to delay the count. Atlanta Counties waited until the dead of night to turn in their "votes," putting Biden ahead.

But when you look at the data, there are serious red flags. Democrat Senate Candidate Jon Ossoff received 100,000 fewer votes than Joe Biden did. By comparison, the GOP candidate, David Perdue, received 1,000 votes more than Donald Trump. We are supposed to believe that Joe Biden won Georgia because 100,000 people voted for him and him alone...

A similar phenomena happened in Michigan, with Joe Biden receiving 70k more votes than the Democrat Senate candidate. In Wisconsin, Joe Biden significantly out-performed Democrat House candidates.

And when you start thinking how this could happen, it starts making a little more sense. A female ballot counter in Delaware County, PA was caught - on video - filling in ballots. A ballot counter in Georgia was caught - on video - flipping the middle finger at a ballot he was reading and then crumpling a ballot up.

If you are going to fraudulently fill out ballots, it is a lot easier to quickly just vote for the Presidential race. The longer you spend manufacturing votes, the higher the likelihood that you will be caught.

We have seen solid evidence of dead people voting in Michigan and out-of-state people voting in Nevada. In Philadelphia, Trump poll watchers were barred from entering the counting facility, even after they had secured a court order requiring the City to let them in, In Detroit, after GOP poll watchers and challengers were kicked out of the counting room, election officials put cardboard on the windows to stop them from watching the count from outside of the room.

That combined with illegal ballot harvesting, and it becomes easier to understand how Joe Biden - a 78-year-old dementia patient - would be able to secure more votes than any other Presidential candidate in American history. More votes than even Barack Hussein Obama...

Republicans blew the Democrats away in State Legislature contests, Governors' races, gained seats in the House of Representatives, and only lost 1 Senate race. We are expected to just accept that the GOP won the down ballot election but lost the Presidential election. GOP Congressmen and Senators rode Donald Trump's coat tails to victory.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 11, 2020:

Just two weeks ago, Nancy Pelosi stated that "Trump may win on election night but Biden will be inaugurated in January." She knew then that there were plans in place to prevent the president's re-election. She was counting on them, certain they would succeed.

So when on Tuesday night it was clear that all the battleground states were going Trump's way, they acted. The networks shut down the state victory calls for Trump the moment all the betting odds were favoring a Trump win.

The Chinese yuan began to tank. Fox fatuously called Arizona for Biden long before it should have and refused to call for Trump the states that he had clearly won: North Carolina, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. All those states were won by Trump on Election Night. But all those states' leftist governors, AGs, and election officials knew what they were meant to do: put a stop to the Trump victory. In the middle of the night thousands of ballots suddenly appeared in those states to stop the Biden bleeding; all of those magic ballots were overwhelmingly for Biden. Imagine that!

The Barlow branch of the Post Office in Traverse City, Michigan has a principled employee on the job. On Wednesday morning, that employee reached out to James O'Keefe, of Project Veritas, to describe how his supervisor required postal workers to segregate ballots received after the deadline had passed and then stamp them with an earlier date so that they could still be counted.

The Project Veritas video below is short, but it tells you everything you need to know about what happened at the Barlow branch. As you think about the information revealed in the video, keep in mind that the National Association of Letter Carriers, which represents nearly 300,000 current and retired Post Office employees, endorsed Joe Biden, warning that their "survival" depended on his election. It beats me how it's legal for the people tasked with handling mail-in ballots are allowed to advocate an openly partisan stance, but that's America in 2020.

Whatever you think of Tuesday’s result, the idea that you can go door-to-door to “fix” ballots the rest of the week is ridiculous. No secret ballot, no Election “Day,” no real oversight. The Third World doesn’t even tolerate this. It’s legalized fraud.

Nevada was one of the states that made the decision to mail ballots to all registered voters, a totally uncontrolled method of sending ballots. As the completed ballots arrived, Nevada destroyed the envelopes, making it impossible to determine later whether the ballots were legitimate:

The Amistad Project’s Michigan lawsuit contains first-hand, eyewitness accounts of Democrat election observers filling out new ballots for votes that machines could not read without the participation of Republican observers. That is illegal.

Poll workers in heavily-Democratic districts gave incorrectly filled-out ballots back to Democrat activists to “fix” them. These actions, taken with the approval of Pennsylvania’s Democrat Secretary of State, violate established Pennsylvania election law.

Philadelphia’s sheriff refused to enforce a judge’s order that compels election officials to allow Republican observers adequate access to monitor the ballot count. Earlier on Thursday, Commonwealth Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon, a Democrat, ordered that effective immediately “all candidates, watchers, or candidate representatives be permitted to be present for the canvassing process … and be permitted to observe all aspects of the canvassing process within 6 feet.”

The election officials inside did move the barricade within 6 feet of the counting area but defied the court order by moving all of the counting machines to the back of the building where they cannot be seen

Anyone who can defend 89 percent turnout in Wisconsin, or 138,000 votes magically appearing in Biden’s column when none appear for Trump in Michigan, or Republican observers being barred from the room when votes are counted in Pennsylvania, Michigan, or Nevada, or mail-in ballots continue to be accepted after deadlines set by state legislatures in multiple states, without recognizing the corruption of the process inherent in these tactics, is either brazenly dishonest or a drooling simpleton.

Nobody has paid for the Trump–Russia hoax, for the Clinton Foundation scam or Hillary’s emails, or for what’s on Hunter Biden’s laptop. We’re talking about some of the most monumental scandals in American history, all of which completely dwarf Watergate, and yet there have never been, and will never be, consequences. And when there are no consequences to corruption, the corruption grows. Like Democrats trying to steal the 2020 presidential election.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 11, 2020:

Americans used to agree on certain things. They believed in God. They believed that America was a force for good in the world. They believed in the individual. They believed in protecting the innocent. They believed in the rule of law. They believed that all men are created equal but are not guaranteed equal outcomes. They believed in charity rather than subservience to government. They hated communism and socialism, loved the challenge of innovating, and took delight in the market’s response to their gifts. They hunted and fished and went to church and minded their own business and helped their neighbors.

In the current political realignment, these beliefs are no longer universal. Half the country holds them. These citizens are derisively referred to deplorables, but really they’re the same old people who consider themselves patriotic Americans. It’s the other half of the country that has changed.

Trump supporters own the businesses that Black Lives Matter and Antifa burned. They own the restaurants and bars destroyed by Democrat shutdowns due to COVID. They are union workers, devout Jews and Christians, small business people, independent contractors, families, the patriotic, tax-paying middle class are the Republicans.

Bureaucrats, technocrats, college professors, business executives, entertainment elites, media, journalists, activists of all sorts, and the poor people this oligarchy enlist to enforce their worldview make up the secular Left. They believe that the rubes do not pay them enough deference for their expertise. They despise any resistance to their rule.

Donald Trump’s voters just want to go to work, come home to their families, and be left alone. They’re proud of America. They wave their American flags proudly. They delight in President Trump.

Stevens said - "Mitch McConnell thinks Trump will be remembered as his (McConnell's) fool, and I think the odds are pretty good it’s going to be the other way around."

Scott Belford from Keystone Heights, FL on November 09, 2020:

Being president gives Trump a get-out-of-jail-free card while he is in office. He loses that protection on Jan 20, thank god.

You should read this James - "It is All a Lie" by Stuart Stevens. "He spent four decades helping Republicans—a lot of Republicans—win. He’s one of the most successful political operatives of his generation, crafting ads and devising strategies for President George W. Bush, Republican presidential nominees Mitt Romney and Bob Dole, and dozens of GOP governors, senators and congressmen. He didn’t win every race, but he thinks he had the best won-lost record in Republican campaign world.

AND NOW HE FEELS terrible about it.

"Stevens now believes the Republican Party is, not to put too fine a point on it, a malign force jeopardizing the survival of American democracy. He’s written a searing apologia of a book called It Was All a Lie that compares his lifelong party to the Mafia, to Bernie Madoff’s fraud scheme, to the segregationist movement, even to the Nazis. He’s pretty disillusioned.

"While Stevens is one of the most prominent “Never Trump” Republicans, and It Was All a Lie is predictably scathing about the failures of President Donald Trump, the book does not blame Trump for the failures of the party he leads. It essentially takes for granted that Trump is as bad a president and a human being as his worst Democratic critics say—and that he constantly violates supposedly BEDROCK Republican COMMITMENTS to FREE TRADE, FAMILY VALUES, LIMITED GOVERNMENT, and the CONSTITUTION.

His point is that Trump is a fitting representative of the modern GOP.

"It Was All a Lie is really about the party that spawned Trump and now marches in near-lockstep behind him—the party to which 67-year-old Stevens has devoted his career. The GOP’s abject surrender to its unorthodox and unconservative leader was a surprise to Stevens, but he has concluded that HE SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN SURPRISED.

"Stevens, a child of segregated Mississippi who has written powerfully about race in the past, says he always knew there was hostility toward minorities and immigrants and science within his party. But he thought that strain was a recessive gene, when it turned out to be the dominant gene. He was an unapologetic political hack whose job was helping Republicans win, BUT HE ALWAYS THOUGHT he was fighting for conservative policies and ideas, for a party that cared about something more than winning.

He doesn’t think that anymore, and his conversion story is getting a lot of buzz."

I am buying the book, you should to and learn something about yourself.

And Trump better be paying for these recounts, because I don’t think 20,000 is within the boundaries for a “close call”. And he’s 4.5 million ahead in the popular vote.

Trump is wasting all our time.

2016 was a true anomaly. Hillary was leading, the polls were with her, and she won the popular vote. It WAS questionable how trump won.

Not this time. We all saw the long lines to vote. Biden is wayyyyy ahead in real votes. And, he’s ahead in the contested states.

Not by small margins. Not 500 votes, like 2000.

This is another Trump production. Or maybe it’s Mark Burnett. Made for tv. Screw the American people.

And the violent trump goon squads better be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, not given passes like Barr does all the upper tier criminals.

Very funny.....I keep hearing people say we need to consider the 70 million who voted for trump.....

I never once heard anyone say trump had to consider the 65million who voted for Hillary in 2016. Not once!

Lucky for these people, Biden has already said he would. Me? I would have said “sit down and shut up”.

As Kasich said in 2000 or whatever, “we’re in charge now. You dont HAVE a say!”

I would only do that to the Trumpers, though. I’m quite fond of our repub gvr. I liked Bill Weld, too.

A mixed gvtmn can work. It was only since Gingrich that it got untenable. And McConnell is the worst.

He’s got 400 bills sitting on his desk. And they will remain there until he dies, I guess.

Who knows, maybe the Biden Irish charm can pull it off. Or the old boy networking.......the minority in the senate (vote wise) needs to loosen its grip.

James points out that "“If we just wore these masks,” Joe Biden said, at the final presidential debate, holding up a mask like a totem, “we can save 100,000 lives.” " - I think Joe has his "tenses" wrong.

It should have been "“If we just wore these masks,” Joe Biden said, at the final presidential debate, holding up a mask like a totem, “we could have saved 100,000 lives.”

followed by

"“If we wear these masks,” Joe Biden said, at the final presidential debate, holding up a mask like a totem, “we can save 100,000 lives.”

The point is, I know you don't believe this James, that wearing masks is the BEST defense we have, even better than a vaccine, against spreading the virus.

My view is that ANY person who is NOT CERTAIN they are contagious that gets within 6 feet of another person without wearing a mask for more than a few minutes should be charged with attempted murder in the second degree.

That includes almost all Trump supporters and several Biden supporters (since most do wear masks)

Biden has already started fighting Covid by standing up a REAL coronavirus task force led by experts and not politicians.

Maskless Texas has already passed the million mark all by itself. What does that tell you.

Let's Prove you wrong with numbers again James, since you like to mislead with them.

Ratio of Never Wear Masks to Always Wear Masks:

Ratio Case Death

Rank (highest) Rank (highest)

Philippines: .01 118th 100th

Thailand .01 204th 186th

Spain .01 18th 5th (outbreak started here)

Italy .02 49th 14th (outbreak started here)

Mexico .02 87th 11th

Japan .04 155th 147th

France .09 20th 17th (2nd case reported here)

German .10 86th 75th (outbreak started here)

US .24 15th 10th (came from Europe)

UK 2.68 41st 13th

Sweden 43.0 52nd 18th

Denmark 43.5 79th 78th

Notes:

1. France, Spain, Italy, and Germany racked up a lot of cases and deaths before they became fully aware of what was going on. Then they brought their numbers WAY down.

2. Conservative America worked against combatting covid.

3. Mexico was late in clamping down on covid.

4. America NEVER lowered its baseline rate much while mask-wearing Europe did. WHY?

5. Even with these rough numbers, it shows wearing masks works.

"When it comes to Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and the newer splinter groups that mimic their tactics, the media often seems to take their social-justice posturing at face value. " - WHY DOES the FBI only label the right-wing groups as terrorists then?

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 08, 2020:

“If we just wore these masks,” Joe Biden said, at the final presidential debate, holding up a mask like a totem, “we can save 100,000 lives.” The Democrat nominee’s plan for fighting the coronavirus was all about wearing masks. And indeed the only notable element of Biden’s plan has been a national mask mandate.

In July, France issued a national mask mandate compelling everyone to wear masks indoors in public spaces. Anyone caught not wearing a mask would face a fine of around $150. In August, Paris and a number of other regions imposed mask rules for anyone leaving the house. Inspectors marched through French workplaces to check that everyone was masked. 78% of French people polled claimed that they studiously wore their masks.

How well did that work out? Despite its strenuous mask regime, France became the country with the fifth largest number of cases. And it’s not alone.

In Spain, where 86% of people wear masks, the government has declared a six month state of emergency with nightly curfews and gatherings limited to 6 people. The only legal reason to leave your house after 11 PM or before 6 AM is to go to work or deal with an emergency. Spain hit the 1 million mark even before France did. And that's despite a nationwide mask mandate back in May,

Italy, where 81% wear masks, responded to yet another spike with a fourth set of lockdown restrictions, shutting down gyms and theaters, while forcing restaurants and bars to close by 6 PM. No one is allowed to watch soccer games in person or go to wedding receptions. Despite all the masks, Italy still holds the record for the second-highest death toll in Europe.

Meanwhile in Sweden, only 5% wear masks. The authorities have never recommended them believing that they are a waste of time.

But Sweden isn’t alone. In Denmark hardly anyone wears masks. And in Norway, less than a sixth do.

The European countries most obsessed with masks are doing the worst.

Yet American media says, “We’re not publishing pieces that say the science behind masks is unsettled or that masks are not effective. We believe that issue has been decided by health officials and scientists of all levels.”

Plenty of doctors and health experts are questioning the validity of masks, But, of course, they will not get airplay. The World Health Organization itself says widespread use of masks by healthy people is not supported by high quality or direct evidence.

A Danish study — important research because it was the first larger randomized controlled study on mask effectiveness specifically for COVID-19 — has not been able to find a publisher. Some suspect this is because its findings do not support the mask-up message that health authorities are pushing.

Sweden, where virtually nobody outside hospital settings uses masks, has had lower 7-days rolling deaths per capita than the U.S. for four months straight; lower than the mask-wielding and lockdown-prone U.K. for almost two months. Even the much-praised German experience now has more people dying from (and with) Covid-19 than Sweden does. Infection rates and spread too: the trends since the height of summer or beginning of fall look the same, regardless if you’re a massively mask-wielding country or not.

Joe Biden did say PUBLICLY a few days before the election, "We have put together the biggest election fraud in history!!”

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 08, 2020:

When it comes to Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and the newer splinter groups that mimic their tactics, the media often seems to take their social-justice posturing at face value. Leftist actors who claim to represent the cause of the oppressed are granted more moral license to use violence as a political tool.

The founders of BLM—Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi—have been candid about their anti-democratic agenda. Cullors, who is also a prison abolitionist and LGBT activist, has publicly stated that she and Garza were “trained Marxists,” and their rhetoric is regularly shot through with explicitly socialist ideas.

In 2015, Garza appeared at a gathering of Left Forum, which holds events with titles such as “Lenin: His Work’s Pertinence Here and Now.” Garza’s own panel was dedicated to the theme of “No Justice, No Peace: Confronting the Crises of Capitalism & Democracy.” She told her audience that “it’s not possible for a world to emerge where black lives matter if it’s under capitalism, and it’s not possible to abolish capitalism without a struggle against national oppression.” This was no one-off. It’s part of her consistent message. “Black lives can’t matter under capitalism,” she told the San Francisco Weekly. “They’re like oil and water.” She’s also stated that “social movements all over the world have used Marx and Lenin as a foundation to interrupt these systems that are really negatively impacting the majority of people.”

A study by the New York Times and Siena College has revealed that the most common female name for someone voting for Joe Biden is ‘Karen’.

Scott Belford from Keystone Heights, FL on November 08, 2020:

"The 2018 op-ed published by the New York Times said that he was just one of many officials in the administration WORKING AGAINST THE PRESIDENT." - ALL that proves is they LOVED America more than they did Trump. They were watching in real time Trump destroy what it took over 200 years to build and they weren't having it.

The Trumpster's will be happy to hear that the pollsters got it wrong in 2020. In 2016, you saw a tightening in the polls after the infamous Comey revelation which left most of the important ones within the margin of error. In 2020, they just didn't have time to adjust for the rally blitz by Trump whose lies, distortions and deceptions drove tons of salivating Red Hats to the polls. Consequently, in almost all cases I looked at so far, they underestimated Republican turn-out, even in states where Biden won.

""Anonymous" claimed that Trump was an idiot," - which any fair observer will agree with.

"claimed that it came from a "senior official in the Trump administration."" - I DON'T KNOW what world you live in, James, but in my world, the Chief of Staff to Homeland Security IS a SENIOR official with lots of access to the President.

His anonymity was to keep the eye on the truth and to prevent people like you changing the narrative away from Trump.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 08, 2020:

The Left always lies about everything, from the Biden bus “ambush” to who the “Boogaloo boys” really are. Miles Taylor revealed that he was the “anonymous senior White House official” who authored a critical op-ed of President Donald Trump. The 2018 op-ed published by the New York Times said that he was just one of many officials in the administration WORKING AGAINST THE PRESIDENT.

Taylor had very little access to the president, but the Times described him as a “senior” official at the time of the op-ed’s publishing. The New York Times proudly published an anonymously written piece from a purported "senior official in the Trump administration," knowing that this statement was a lie.

"Anonymous" claimed that Trump was an idiot, but that a brave band of "senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda." In fact, the author was Miles Taylor, a low-level functionary in DHS when he wrote the hit piece.

The anonymous article, published on Sept. 5, 2018, bore the lofty title, "I Am Part of the Resistance inside the Trump Administration: I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations." As noted above, to give the piece heft, the New York Times claimed that it came from a "senior official in the Trump administration." We now know this statement was an outright lie, for the Times admitted that the author's "identity is known to us."

Miles Taylor wasn't even on DHS's leadership page when he wrote the hit piece. DHS actually listed 64 individuals it considered senior at the department on the day the op-ed was published. Taylor was not one of them.

The New York Times editorial-page staff described him only as a "senior administration official," setting off a guessing game that it was White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, the attorney general or the secretary of defense. Instead, it was a 31-year-old chief of staff for the Department of Homeland Security, someone barely old enough to be elected to the Senate.

“I also didn’t realize the definition of ‘senior administration official’ could be *this* expansive,” tweeted Axios’ Jonathan Swan, himself a far left wing extreme extremist, pointing out that Taylor wasn’t “even an agency chief of staff at the time the op-ed ran.”

Even the Far left wing extreme extremist Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias suggested that Taylor’s identity was intentionally obscured in order to make him sound “more authoritative.” “There’s a legitimate role for anonymity in journalism but that op-ed embodied one of its worst uses, where you obscure the source of information primarily to make the source sound more authoritative than he really is,” Yglesias tweeted. The anonymity in the original op-ed combined with these paragraphs is used to create the false impression that we are reading the thoughts of a cabinet officer with direct knowledge of these conversations, not a Schedule C rehashing press reports.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 08, 2020:

For five months, Americans have lived in terror of the left’s violent mobs, who have looted cities, ripped down statues, and even attacked police with the approval and endorsement of the Democratic Party. Now, Democrats are trying to shift the blame for their violence onto the right. Their latest tactic is to blame the “Boogaloo Bois,” sometimes known more vaguely as the “Boogaloo movement.” According to the press, the Boogaloo Bois are right-wing extremists, and the ones really responsible for the violence in America’s cities last summer.

This is a lie. The Boogaloo movement is not a “far right militia” or a network of “right-wing extremists.” To the extent the group has a coherent ideology at all, it is best described as a “woke” “anti-racist” group with a left-wing anarchist twist. It is similar to Antifa in its “woke” “anti-racist ideology” and violence.

If “right wing” could accurately describe a radically anti-racist, pro-BLM group that shot up a police station while shouting “justice for George Floyd” then the term right -wing has no meaning whatsoever. The entire premise is absurd.

Rather than admit this, the press routinely lies, using “far-right” as a dishonest trick to link Boogaloos with the left’s enemies. A recent article from the Star Tribune of Minnesota illustrates the press’s typical approach to covering Boogaloo business: Feds say Texas adherent of far-right group fired on precinct building, conspired with cop killer to ignite civil war. The Star Tribune repeats the claim in the second sentence of its article, once again calling Boogaloo extremists “far-right.”

But the details of the story show the exact opposite: “the Boogaloo Bois helped burn down a police station, targeted police officers, proudly allied with Black Lives Matter, and embraced the left’s agenda of committing felonies to achieve amorphous change. Boogaloo activists Hunter and Carrillo were both earnest supporters of BLM’s anti-cop agenda.”

Nothing about this is right-wing.

There are more examples. In August, two other Boogaloo Bois were arrested for plotting to aid Hamas. Sympathy for Hamas is common enough on the left, but unheard of on the right. Boogaloo leader Teeter said he was a non-voting “left anarchist” and a member of the LGBT community.

More than 30 Boogaloo Bois showed up in Kenosha to participate in the rioting there. They called themselves anarchists, and explicitly denied any connection to Kyle Rittenhouse. Once again, they are clearly aligned towards the left, and once again, the “far-right” Boogaloos are totally missing.

In a profile of the Boogaloos published last July, the U.K.’s left-wing Guardian newspaper admitted that while white supremacists have appeared on Boogaloo-related Facebook groups, the group’s administrators instead “want to stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter.” Ridiculously, in the same article former DHS analyst Daryl Johnson claims that Boogaloo is right-wing because it is “primarily white.”

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 08, 2020:

All Karen broke loose as the Biden bus was spontaneously surrounded by cars bearing big pro-Trump flags and banners, putting on a show for the cameras. Nobody was violent, nobody was threatening. It obviously was an exuberant joie de vivre event.

Look at whining, hectoring outrage among Democrats: "This was Harassment. A Blockade. Voter intimidation. An Ambush. Why, they was Armed!" The hysteria mounted: “This is an attempted homicide. Why hasn’t anyone been arrested?” LOL One of them even called 911, suddenly taking a shine to the cops they otherwise want to defund.

The hypocrisy runs thick, to start. This, after all, is the party whose candidate is endorsed by Antifa. The party of looting, rioting, and burning, the party of CHOP, the party of restaurant disruptions, the party of shooting into Trump processions, as happened in Sherman Oaks. "Get in their faces," as Rep. Maxine Waters put it, calling for mobbings of Republicans in public places.

Now we see the whimper of the punched bully, the acts and language of the Karen, crying victim. And it ends up, the only violence was a Biden supporter in an SUV sideswiping a Trump supporter on purpose.

On Monday morning, the day before Election Day, the woman who is the president of the World Mental Health Coalition and a frequent guest on CNN and MSNBC where she comments on mental health, Dr. Bandy X.

A new video featuring sworn testimony from Planned Parenthood leaders presents evidence that the abortion chain lied to Congress and the media about its aborted baby body parts trade in Texas. The video shows Melissa Farrell, the vice president of research at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, admitting under oath that her affiliate provides the “products of conception in its entirety” – which includes the aborted baby’s body — to a university.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 08, 2020:

According to a search warrant affidavit recently unsealed in federal court, one of the leaders of the plot to kidnap the governor "also threatened to hang President Donald Trump" and kill the Republican governor of South Carolina, Henry McMaster. Barry Croft, the Delaware crank facing a federal charge of conspiracy to kidnap Whitmer, posted on Facebook in June that he's "for hanging Democrats, Republicans and Libertarians." As for Trump, Croft sounds remarkably simpatico with Rashida Tlaib, saying he'd like to "hang this mf'er too."

All of this blows to pieces one of the left's most useful fables. Until now, the unquestioned story has been that the plotters — a hodgepodge of underachievers referred to by the feds as the "Wolverine Watchmen" — were Trump-supporters.

Governor Whitmer, who happens to be one of the Biden campaign's co-chairs and "surrogates," leapt at the political opportunity to trash her boss's opponent. She ran to the media to announce, without a shred of evidence, that the president was "complicit" in the plot, and "that those who were plotting to kidnap her had 'heard the president's words not as a rebuke but as a rallying cry— as a call to action.'" Jesse Jackson claimed that the "connections" were "inescapable" that "[t]he plotters were emboldened" by Trump's "stand by" phrase. Rashida Tlaib knew that the kidnappers acted because Trump "didn't do enough to condemn white supremacists."

But we know now that Barry Croft and his pals hated Trump and definitely weren't looking to him for orders. There had been earlier reports, largely ignored, that at least one other conspirator was a BLM-supporter, and another was an anarchist who hated Trump and hated law enforcement. In other words, these guys didn't share the values that draw tens of thousands to cheer themselves hoarse at Trump rallies.

James A Watkins (author) from Chicago on November 08, 2020:

One major factor complicating the COVID-19 death toll in the U.S. is our obesity rate. Trust for America's Health recently published a report titled "The State of Obesity 2020." According to data available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, from 2017-2018, 42% of American adults were obese. Not merely overweight -- obese. Nine percent were "severely" obese. (How do we compare with the rest of the world? America has the 12th highest obesity rate among 191 countries. South Korea, by comparison, is 183rd, with only 4.7% of its population obese.)

This is the highest number ever recorded, and it is part of a disturbing trend. Not only are more adults obese but levels of obesity in children and young people are increasing as well. The Global Pediatric Health journal calls obesity in youth an "epidemic," reporting that obesity has doubled in children and tripled in adolescents just since 1990.

These numbers are terribly important because obesity is closely associated with other serious health disorders including respiratory problems such as asthma, sleep apnea, arthritis, gout, hypertension (high blood pressure), heart attacks, strokes, Type 2 diabetes and even certain cancer. The human toll obesity exacts is heartbreaking and immeasurable. The financial toll, however, is measurable. The CDC also estimates the health care costs associated with obesity to be $147 billion each year.

America's weight problem and related disorders are also playing a huge and underarticulated role in COVID-19's fatality rate in the United States. A much-misinterpreted CDC report revealed that 94% of all COVID-19 deaths occurred in individuals with one or more co-morbidities -- serious health problems that were contributing causes to death. Some of those co-morbidities -- most notably, pneumonia -- were caused by COVID-19 itself. But many others, such as heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and renal failure -- preexisted the viral infection; COVID-19 dealt the final blow.

Obese people who contracted COVID-19 were "113% more likely than people of healthy weight to land in the hospital, 74% more likely to be admitted to an ICU, and 48% more likely to die." A study conducted by Genentech examined 17,000 hospitalized COVID patients; almost 80% were overweight or obese.

Similarly, obesity rates by ethnicity or racial identification are relevant to death rates but disproportionate to their share of the U.S. population. Non-Hispanic Blacks represent 13% of the U.S. population but have the highest COVID-19 mortality rate of any group -- two times that of whites and Asians. The next highest mortality group is among indigenous peoples (less than 1% of the population), followed by Latinos (only 16.7% of the population). Asian Americans have the lowest mortality rate from COVID-19.

These results are closely tracking obesity rates. Non-Hispanic Blacks have the highest obesity rate in the U.S. (49.6%), followed by Native Americans (48.1%), Hispanics (44.8%) and non-Hispanic whites (42.2%). Non-Hispanic Asians have the lowest rate (17.4%).

The multi-trillion-dollar Green New Deal; $1.4 billion in slavery reparations; open borders; taxpayer-funded college, health care, and housing for illegal aliens; Medicare for All (Squad member Jayapal co-chaired Biden's health care task force); ending Israeli military aid; court-packing; expansive regulations overseeing every aspect of our lives including regulating the destruction of suburbs; federally funded abortion on demand; expanding unions by repealing right-to-work laws; defunding the police; restricting gun ownership; ending fossil fuels and rejoining the Paris Accords; skyrocketing taxes; and empowering Iran and China — these are but a few of the Democrats' plans.

Voter fraud is a distinctively American problem with deep roots in the Democratic Party. A significant portion of the Democrat voting public approves of the illegal manipulation of electoral results. And there is not the slightest doubt that the “week in ballot shenanigans” is upon us once again: ballot harvesting, voting rules changed overnight, ballot dumping, stolen ballots, extended voting, multiple voting, the attempt to count unpostmarked ballots, and so on. Indeed, every conceivable form of ballot tampering is par for the course, including the latest iteration of the grave robbing vote in Florida.

And Kasich is telling US, we must now listen to YOUALL......as if any of you cared one whit what we had to say.

F your feelings, cry liberal tears, remember?

And Kasich says this after Biden won!

So far, I see no intention of trump party giving an inch.....even though it’s what America wants.

And I have a bad feeling about how many really of his army are everywhere. He’s had 4 years to assemble them.

I worry most about those public figures who spoke out against him.

This may sound ridiculous, but trump reminds me of the Jack Nicholson character from Witches of Eastwick.

"Good God Scott, is the ..." - NO, there is no end to my truthfulness! If you had bothered to pull your head out of the sand and looked around you would have seen that 1) I didn't say a word about Clinton or Obama, 2) they faced MAJOR opposition from Democrats and needed Republicans to get NAFTA passed, and 3) Republicans were all ON BOARD for both NAFTA and TPP.

Try joining the real world for a moment, you might enjoy it.

You forget, Leslie, that Trump and his flock rely on Russia propaganda for their alternative version of reality. (maybe it would be correct to say it is the Russian view of reality)

Dejoy may have cost Biden Florida. He is already in contempt of court and needs to go to jail for it. This needs further investigation. I guess Trump will have to issue YET ANOTHER friend a Pardon.

BTW James, I watched poll workers filling out ballots as well - they were a judge and two commissioners, all Republicans, under the supervision of the commissioner of elections. Why were they doing that? To transfer the votes from damaged ballots or military ones that were faxed in. See, not EVERYTHING is a conspiracy in the real world.

"In one Michigan county, they found 6,000 votes ... " -- DEBUNKED, conspiracy theory.

"In Nevada, just a cursory look has already found over 3,000 fraudulent votes,..." - DEBUNKED, conspiracy theory

"In Philly, they did. From 150 feet away! lol ... " - CHECK your facts, it was 6 feet.

Why a recount in Nevada? Biden's lead is 1.8% and growing. You really don't think Trump will pay for it do you since he doesn't qualify for an automatic recount? He is going to be broke now that he won't be able to make millions off of being president and his brand tanks.

Biden is well on his way to a, by your definition, a LANDSLIDE!

Well, then they better take into account that DeJoy sabotaged the mail!

Btw James, Biden is ahead of Trump more than trump was ahead of Hillary when they called the election in 2016.

Even the most far left wing extreme extremists admit Bush won that election. Check your New York Times exhaustive study of it, or Washington Post.
