California Democrats Found a New Technique for Stealing Elections
California Democrats Found a New Technique for Stealing Elections
Democrats are masters of doublespeak and dishonesty.
They said Donald Trump was crazy for questioning election integrity while claiming he and other Republicans stole elections.
But the Democrats are the ones using shady methods to secure election wins.
On the night of the 2018 midterm elections, California Republican Congressman David Valadao had a huge 6.4% lead over his Democratic challenger T.J. Cox.
Three weeks later, Cox officially won the seat.
On election night 2018, California Republican challenger Young Kim held an 8,000-vote lead, and she was labeled the first Korean-American elected to Congress.
She even attended freshman orientation in Washington, D.C.
A few weeks later, her Democratic opponent Gil Cisneros was proclaimed the winner of the seat.
This was a common story in California.
Four seats flipped from red to blue well after election night in the once reliably Republican Orange County.
Late flips in races that are nearly too close to call aren't unheard of, but comfortable leads (including a ridiculous 6.4% spread) rarely evaporate.
The Democrats employed a strategy called ballot harvesting.
That allowed them to add roughly 250,000 late votes in Orange County, turning all six seats in the county blue.
Ballot harvesting allows anyon not just relatives and roommates, as was the previous standard to collect ballots from voters and dump them off at polling stations.
The practice is illegal in most states, and comes with jail time in Texas, New York, and Pennsylvania.
The California bill allowing harvesting passed in 2016 with little fanfare, but some opponents of the bill foresaw the obvious problems.
They highlighted the fact that ballot harvesting is susceptible to vote-buying, coercion, and fraud.
It's also unnecessary when voters can simply mail in their ballots.
Democrats keep finding creative ways to win elections.
Former Minnesota senator Al Franken, who was pressured to step down after allegations of sexual misconduct, originally won his seat against Norm Coleman by a razor-thin margin of 312 votes with ballots that shouldn't have been counted.
Franken received hundreds of votes from convicted felons who weren't legally allowed to cast ballots.
In Virginia, a Democrat volunteer was sent to jail for enrolling dead people on voter rolls.
In several California districts, there are more registered voters than actual people according to census data.
In Texas, poll workers were caught on camera encouraging illegals to vote.
In an Arizona senate race, Republican Martha McSally held a narrow lead on election night, but Democrat Kyrsten Sinema surged ahead after thousands of ballots were discovered in a high school.
In Florida, Andrew Gillum almost pulled off an eleventh hour victory when Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes couldn't, and wouldn't, submit a ballot count.
Gillum rescinded his concession in hopes that enough Democrat votes would magically materialize.
One video even captured a van pulling up to a polling station and delivering votes, but Gillum still couldn't find enough votes.
Gillum conceded once again, and Snipes resigned in disgrace.
This is just a snapshot of election shenanigans that have recently taken place, and they always break in the Democrats favor.
Strange how that happens.
If ballot harvesting becomes a normal practice, Democrats could start pulling off even more election miracles.
There goes Fox News !!!
Soros bought out Fox News ! The ONLY source of conservative news is in the crapper !!! How long will it take Soros to replace the news people on Fox ???
Military people are going to boycott FOX
I have written 4 or 5 emails or Internet links to FOX. I told them I will no longer watch there channel since they seem to be in favor of Islam and hired that creep Donna Brazile .
I was looking on the web and lots of Military people are going to boycott FOX do to there suspending Judge Pirro for asking a question of the Jew-hating Muslim in Congress. I guess we can't ask questions anymore.
Sure glad there is One America News. It's on DirectTV 347, better than FOX!
When you were 16 years old were you ever interested in politics???
Democrats want to lower voting age to 16....What do you think about it???
Is hate necessary to disaprove of a person's words, actions, and character?
I have a daughter and most of us have children. If they lied, acted like a bully, or did not stand up for a friend in trouble, what do we do? Hate them to make or help them change? No. We lovingly show how what they did is wrong, how their behavior actually hurts themselves and often others. We do not ignore what they did. We do not excuse it. We do not cuddle them. We confront and resolve these issues.
A public figure is somewhat different, especially one holding the highest office in our nation and the image of the Free World; an appointed model for our country's values, principles, ideals, and laws, never mind for the future of Democracy on the planet. Such a person is to rightfully be held to a higher standard. Failing to do so is failing this Republic and worldwide hopes of liberty. Any patriot, anyone who really loves America, is duty bound to hold the president to this higher standard (or some standard of decency) and demand accountability.
Many on the Right calls this true patriotism just the act of "haters" and dismisses it, blindly attacks it. How do they possibly excuse their duty to country to maintain, strengthen, and enhance this great nation by refusing, deflecting, and ignoring to challenge the president's confirmed lies and misdeeds and questionable policies, his mad Twitter rants that convict him of low character, and continue to think that they are true Americans?
mc cain? mr.death on a carrier deck.
Ever notice the types of persons, sons and daughters , who have very successful, and famous parents? What they actually develop to or become in society? some kill themselves at 40 or become absolute drunks, drug takers and end up on the streets or worse. Jr. Mc C probably realized early on he could never duplicate his father's success and fame. so he acts out on a carrier deck "i'll show him what a great son i am" (father an admiral) costing several navy deaths and extensive very high priced equipment damage to planes and the carrier itself. Trump sensed what was beneath mc cain's overblown fake shell and realized what an incompetent ass he was facing despite the fake "war hero" b.s. congress had given him because nc cain was held as a prisoner of war in vietnam. Trump is right. He is no war hero.
Trump is truly bringing dignity back to the presidency
Mirrors MY thinking - - how about YOURS ???

Trump's attacks on McCain and Conway are truly bringing dignity back to the presidency
Since Donald Trump became president, so many amazing things have happened, according to Donald Trump.
But the thing I most appreciate is how he has, at long last, restored dignity to the office of the presidency.
Why, just Wednesday morning, he responded to criticism from the husband of one of his top advisers, Kellyanne Conway, by dignifiedly tweeting: “George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted. I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”
This is a textbook presidential display of dignity. In fact, there’s an entire chapter on it in my soon-to-be-published book “Presidential Dignity Throughout American History” that recalls how, during the 1860 presidential campaign, Abraham Lincoln sent what was known then as a “parchment tweet” describing his Southern Democratic opponent John Breckinridge as a “TOTALLY STUPID LOSER and henpecked husband from hades!”
A total class act.
In other recent acts of dignity, Trump has resumed his attacks on John McCain, a war hero and longtime Republican senator who died of brain cancer last August.
From the Oval Office on Tuesday, Trump said: “I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be.” Over the weekend, he falsely referred to the senator in a tweet as “‘last in his class’ (Annapolis) John McCain.”
Any student of presidential dignity knows that a true statesman waits until after a highly respected politician and war hero is dead and unable to defend himself before insulting that politician’s intelligence and telling the world you hate him.
In a series of more than 50 dignity-heavy tweets this weekend, the president of the United State of America attacked: an Ohio union president; a former secretary of state (“Crooked Hillary”); a former Vice President Joe Biden (“low I.Q. individual”); the entire Democratic Party (“The Radical Left Democrats”); “Saturday Night Live” ("not funny/no talent”); and the free press (“Corrupt Media” and “FAKE NEWS MEDIA!”)
He also achieved peak office-of-the-presidency dignity by retweeting comedian Larry the Cable Guy, who was retweeting actor and conspiracy theory peddler James Woods.
It’s just refreshing to have a president who gets the basic standards of American political decency and decorum.
Unlike that former occupant of the White House, Barack “Hussein” Obama.
Remember back in 2015 when Obama appeared in a lighthearted BuzzFeed video promoting the Affordable Care Act? It was disgraceful, and it led Fox News host Greta Van Susteren to say: “I yearn for my president looking presidential and serious right now.”
She was white about that. The yearning was so great.
Also in 2015, Obama de-dignified the office of the presidency by allowing himself to be interviewed by three popular YouTube stars, who asked him questions on foreign policy, education and other issues.
Conservative radio host and dignity warrior Rush Limbaugh declared: “You talk about beneath the dignity of the office, maybe setting a new low. President Obama with YouTube interviews.”
It’s a wonder the nation managed to recover.
In 2014, Republican House Speaker John Boehner described Obama’s use of “execution action” in an op-ed published on CNN’s website: “It is utterly beneath the dignity of the office.”
(Obama’s executive actions were notably different from Trump’s recent executive action to circumvent Congress and fund a border wall because Trump’s executive action is heroic and, if anything, above the dignity of the office.)
For all intents and purposes, Obama sucked the dignity out of the office of the presidency.
So we should thank our lucky stars that President Trump has now filled the Oval Office to its rooftop with dignity by appropriately labeling people losers, husbands from hell and stupid dead war heroes.
Trump has done it his way. And we can conclude from the past comments of Obama’s many critics — those who now praise Trump’s behavior as bold and authentic — that Trump’s approach is truly the white way to preserve the dignity of the office.
How Can A Person Who Didn't Win An Election Do A Report On Someone With My Greatness???
Oh brother, more whining and crying...
This is what you all have to look forward to, the whining and crying tour... poor me.
He gave McCain the funeral he wanted, he didn't have to, he got no thanks...whaaah
Conway is such a loser...whaaah
I just won one of the best elections in history and now I have "someone" writing a report on me...whaaaaah
This is going to be a long year for those supporting Trump
More of how the trump chumps are helping the working class
With no fanfare in early March, the Treasury Department issued a notice that allows employers to buy out current retirees from their pensions with a one-time lump sum payment. The decision reverses Obama-era guidance, issued in 2015, that had effectively banned the practice after officials determined that lump-sum payments often shortchanged seniors.
I don't know who got to whom ,but the network has taken a sharp left turn very quickly.
Maybe someone got a note from the Cliton suicide squad.
