By any means necessary

The Democrats clearly do not intend to honor any facet of our system of government that does not result in their gaining power.  Senator Marco Rubio sounds the alarm:

Broward County – a heavily Democratic area whose supervisor of elections illegally destroyed ballots in a previous election.  (Why is she still in the position?)  Broward County – a heavily Democratic area home to Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who (among many other things I don’t have space to list here) stated publicly there are “many things” that can be done to rig an electionBroward County – a heavily Democratic area known for being home to the “Broward Cowards” — Sherriff Israel’s police force that failed to actively intervene during the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.  (Like the supervisor of elections, the Sherriff still has his job, despite losing a vote of confidence by his own department’s union.)

The problem is not limited to the whisker-close races in Florida, either:

Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema took a narrow 9,610-vote lead over GOP Rep. Martha McSally Thursday evening as Arizona’s election authorities counted more ballots in the state’s uncalled Senate race.

…depending on the results in Arizona and Florida, the Republican majority in the next Senate could be as small as 52 seats or as big as 54. That spread could be significant on legislation and judicial confirmations over the next two years…

Especially since Senator-elect Romney will undoubtedly take the RINO role previously held by the late Senator McCain, poking his finger in his own party’s eye when it suits him.  President Trump announced before the election that the Federal Government would look closely at improper actions and allegations of fraud.  I sincerely hope they are doing so, and are prepared to make very public examples of anyone found putting their thumb on the scale.  We keep hearing that Trump’s election somehow made Democrats lose faith in our Constitutional system.  As one writer points out, that’s not the case.  They haven’t lost faith in it… they just don’t like how it gets in their way.  That’s why places like Broward County will try to continue “finding votes” until they have enough to get the election results they wanted.

This is outright attempted electoral theft.  It cannot be tolerated.  Period.  The public must demand accountability for this process.  If the Arizona and Florida races are shown to be stolen by the Democrats, the Senate MUST refuse to seat the alleged winners.

Americans have long been cynical about their own elections — but have been willing to abide by the results of record.  If that ceases to be the case (and the Democrats’ collective tantrum after 2016 was a huge step in that direction), we will have anarchy in very short order.  Are you prepared for that contingency?

This-n-that

* More thoughts about the milestone noted yesterday — the 5 biggest lies about our national debt.

* The Oath Keepers illustrate do-it-yourself community security–to the ire of authorities who will brook no competition or breaking of their monopoly, regardless whether that enforcement power is actually protecting anybody:

Rhodes also gave Vice this explanation for the Oath Keepers’ interest in the situation:

…in Ferguson, what they’re being told is you only have two choices: 1) a hyper-militarized police state to stop violence, including arson, or 2) let it go and burn the town down. Twenty different buildings have burned to the ground. That’s a false choice.

For Ferguson in particular if…they don’t believe that the police department is legitimate, they should be protecting themselves and secure themselves because the more they secure themselves, the less reason there is for the police to be in their neighborhoods and communities. So they should take care of themselves for both reasons—to be secure, but also to be more free.

* In the logic of some, a police shooting justifies burning down businesses that had nothing to do with the event.  If that’s the standard, what does five ‘youth’ beating a man to death with hammers in front of his fiancee justify?  If the expectation is that this man’s family and friends should calmly await justice (and that’s what civilization entails) and accept its verdict, then why do we expect so little of the Ferguson protestors, or make excuses for them?

* Surprise, surprise: the GOP campaigning in last month’s election that they would “reign in” Obama’s unconstitutional mandates will, in the end, amount to Shakespeare’s “sound and fury, signifying nothing.”     Dear Republicans: either steadfastly confront and defund the usurper’s edicts, or shut up and stop trying to pretend you offer an alternative to unconstitutional government.  It’s not like your own bona fides from being in power are all that authentic to begin with…

* It’s nice when our leaders encourage citizens to be involved.  It’s NOT nice when they encourage citizens to vote early and often…  Dear Louisiana: why is there not an immediate movement to remove this individual from office?  Any elected official that encourages lawbreaking–whether he claims to be “joking” or not–does not deserve to be in a position of public trust.  By leaving this individual in office, you are by default giving your consent to this.  PS: note that this mayor’s son is on Senator Landrieu’s staff, and consider that accordingly in the special election…

* This particular minute of wisdom doesn’t just apply to banking and finance.  You get more of WHATEVER you reward–something our society really needs to take into account.

* And finally, just an idle question: can anyone vouch for Igor’s  whereabouts?
