Early Voting and the Costs of Lessons Learned
Illinois Review ^ | October 26, 2020 A.D. | John F Di Leo

Some of us have been warning you all about the many risks in “early voting” for quite a while... there is always more to learn about candidates, and, strangely enough, most of it hits during the month of October.

Some of you, for example, voted early, for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris... before the most recent debate, before the huge revelations about Joe Biden's family and their corruption network, which has now proven to be so much bigger than most of us ever suspected.

How many Americans voted for Biden, days or weeks ago, and are now kicking themselves for voting before all the information was in?

What have we learned in recent days, after the first 40 million Americans had already voted?

Well, we learned that Joe Biden intends to "transition America away from petrochemicals." It's not just that he wants to ban fracking, which releases oil and gas more efficiently than we ever could before, and has helped us become an energy-independent nation for the first time.

Oh no, Joe Biden wants to ban oil completely. So, what if you work in that industry, or in one of the industries dependent on oil (which, frankly, is virtually all industries)? Oh, Joe doesn’t care about you.

We learned that Joe Biden intends to complete the path to socialized medicine that Obamacare started. His plan is to apply even more force than Obamacare did, to push even more people into Medicare and Medicaid – the state and federal programs that bankrupt the medical profession, reducing the healthcare options to the public while ruining whole career paths for aspiring professionals.

What if you're in that industry, or dependent upon it, and you're aware of how many clinics and hospitals Medicare and Medicaid have caused to fail? What if you recognize that healthcare was always both an honorable and lucrative career path, perhaps you were considering it yourself, and you now find that you must abandon the choice because of his policies? Well, Joe doesn’t care about you.

We learned that Joe Biden fully supports the Green New Deal - he doesn’t admit it out loud to a televised audience, but it’s been on his own website for months. He believes in the hoax of “manmade global warming,” so he supports the entire crazy extremist, collectivist agenda of AOC, Kamala Harris, and the whole environmentalist Left.

That means banning oil, banning cattle, banning coal, banning airplanes... it’s endless, really. All human activity produces carbon, after all, so the quest for “zero emissions” is really a quest for an end to life on this planet. So, what if you believe we deserve to enjoy the technology and convenience of modernity? What if your job depends on them? Sorry, you’re out of luck; Joe doesn’t care about you.

We learned that the Biden/Harris team have gone all-in with the concept of court-packing... not just adding enough justices to the Supreme Court to render non-leftists a permanent minority, but totally redesigning the American judiciary. They have quietly released a commitment to their donor base, declaring their intent to redesign the lower federal courts, creating new opportunities to build whole unanimous panels of "judges" committed to their assertion that the Constitution is nothing but a museum artifact.

What if you believe in the American system of an independent judiciary? What if you believe in the traditional American criminal justice system, assuming innocence until guilt is proven, with a judiciary that applies the law, but doesn't intrude on the legislature's role to make the law? Joe Biden thinks your ideas are outdated; he doesn't care about what you think.

We learned that Biden’s personal corruption was far worse than most of us ever dreamed... that the relatives and friends who have gotten rich in his orbit for years, selling access to a US Senator and then a US Vice President, had actually been kicking in a portion to him all along. He gets them a foreign gig, he does them favors, and they kick in a share to The Big Guy. This is exactly the kind of public sector bribery that the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Anti-Bribery Law, and a host of other EU and foreign country anti-corruption laws were designed to combat.

Over the past half century, a major goal of the Western nations has been to try to purge the third world of political corruption like this; by contrast, Joe Biden has brought it to America on a grand scale. In the worldwide fight against political corruption, Joe Biden has demonstrated that he’s on corruption's side.

We all knew of the sleazy way that Kamala Harris started out in politics, and many have long suspected Joe Biden of sexual improprieties... we long suspected his son Hunter of them as well, but not until this week did we begin to learn the depths of depravity to which the Biden family descends. The revelations on the now-famous "laptop from Hell" - quickly corroborated by unimpeachable witnesses - have shocked even the most jaded Biden-watchers.

There are likely to be yet more shoes to drop on this one. But Joe Biden himself has never been prosecuted for it, so he sure doesn’t care about these laws either. Joe assumes laws are for the little people, not for him.

We learned that Joe Biden’s plans for the economy are worse than we expected. He has promised massive, unaffordable tax increases, propelling our corporate tax rate well beyond our foreign competitors, erasing the Trump tax cuts completely, and opening up your retirement savings to taxation as well. Between the millions of jobs his energy policy will destroy, and the millions of jobs his taxes will destroy, Americans won’t have much left in their pockets to tax, but he promises to go after whatever little is left, anyway.

What if your business was closed by the illegal statewide Covid lockdowns? What if your retail career was destroyed by the mask mandates and wanton violence that have destroyed our big cities’ downtowns and emptied our shopping malls? What if you’re desperately in need of an economic revitalization to create new jobs for yourself and your family? Sorry, but you’re not on Joe Biden’s radar either. He’ll just tell you to “learn to code,” like he famously snapped at coal miners in Pennsylvania recently. Joe doesn’t care about you.

This isn’t all completely new. The American Right has known about much of this, though usually not the full extent of it, for years. That’s one of the key reasons why much of the Right never believed Joe Biden would be nominated in 2020 – knowing that Democrats knew even more about Biden than Republicans do, how could they possibly hitch their wagon to such a horse?

But they did, against all odds, and here we are in 2020, with the most publicly corrupt national candidate in American history running as the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee. It’s inconceivable, but it is happening. The Democrats’ allies in the mainstream media did their dirty work for them for years, keeping this information buried as long as they could, but the dam has finally burst; they can’t hide the truth anymore. If you wondered why the Democrats have been pushing early voting so hard this year... now you know. They knew what was coming.

And so, with every day remaining in the campaign, we learn even more about Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and their entire corrupt, socialist candidate roster, from top to bottom... all of it damning.

This is clearly not your grandfathers’ Democratic Party; they’re worse than ever, on every front. And there’s still more to be revealed.

#WalkAway, folks, just #WalkAway.

And never vote early if you can possibly avoid it; there’s always more to learn, right up to Election Day. Don’t do something you might regret.

FORCE Schools To Let Male Athletes Compete In Girls’ Sports...Any Dem congressman who didn’t support this got kicked out by holding their primary in remapped districts. Why isn’t this an issue in this 2020 campaign by the Republicans ?

.. Democratic candidate for America’s Vice President California Sen. Kamala Harris sponsored a Senate bill that would that would force funding public schools to allow biologically male athletes who identify as transgender on girls’ sports teams.

In March 2019, Harris cosponsored the Equality Act, which would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 . Among other things, the bill would force public schools to expand female athletic teams to include biological males who identify as transgender girls
.Also did this and this


.. And why there is no such thing as a Conservative Dem in Congress An example is Illinois 3rd district
.. Todays Democrats weren’t happy with this father then son votes against abortion and the son’s being the only congressional democrat to vote NO on allowing men to to call themselves a women and compete with women in college sports. To stop this the demoncrats decided to remap the areas which supported them for their primary. The ward (the 23rd) and the congressional district formerly the 5th which they changed into being the 3rd Illinois congressional by taking ward areas which are dominated by hispanic fore names and placing them into the Louis Gutierez district.

In the reshaped 3rd Congressional district primary Daniel Lipinski lost because of redistricting. Of a district which had previously included adjacent Chicago city wards to his 23rd. which was “re-mapped in 2012 after former alderman and ward committeeman now congressman William O Lipinski annouced his retirement and wanted his son for his congressional replacement .

The remap was replacing ward boundaries of the 14th known as the stockyards which had experienced demographic changes. They chopped up and called sections of not only the 23 rd but the of adjacent 12th and 15th wards now the 14th ward

Where because Chicago alderman oversee routing of such things as garbage collections it affected getting city services . Some have complained of seeing rodents since as well as complained of poor road maintainence in their distrct.Now with this remap if your residence was in one ward. Now has your neighbor across the street or a block down is in another ward

.. The 5th was a district in the 1950’s which was a part of the third largest school district in the country run by the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago. Those city wards were primarily composed of dozens of traditional value family oriented Catholic/Christian communities centered around their churches and their schools. Hence opposed to funding such things as abortion and LGBT activities rather for issues that dealt exclusively with city issues such as a subway L service and the Stevenson Expressway.

Those Wards once were reliable supporters of Dan’s father, William O Lipinski. But after the 2012 redistricting the number of precincts in the 23rd were cut back to 39 and even their ward headquarters location was stuck in another ward.

And where many wards had areas with hispanic last names those areas were redistricted and assigned to the Louis Gutieriez’s district. Where areas where buildings were abandoned affected by the no money down home mortgages or had changed because of this. The ward such as the 14th known as Back of The Yards because of the former stock yards which has since relocated was remapped to include portions of other wards mainly the 23rd which Those results are posted below which actually tear up the concept of a neighborhood and pit people against each other by using division.

In some of those wards areas of city blocks which were zoned exclusively for single family dwellings residents suddenly found their neighborhood having houses torn down and being replaced with multiple apartments with the units not required to furnish parking facilities and many renters were illegals. Much of which fit the plans for the suburbs

Same here with me (Illinois.).

Me too early voted in person in Texas. Main reason is my job can send me out of town in short order. There’s no way I’d vote DemoRat so my ballot is carved in stone from the outset.
