    The Hill ^ | 12/01/2022 | Jared Gans, Caroline Vakil
    President Biden on Thursday endorsed a major shake-up of the Democratic presidential nominating process that would make South Carolina the first state to vote.... In a separate letter to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) made public, Biden emphasized the first contests should represent the diversity of the party and country.... Biden said in the letter that voters of color must have a voice in choosing the party’s nominee much earlier than they currently do.... Biden said the early voting states should reflect the party and country’s economic, geographic and demographic diversity, adding that union households should be represented in greater...
  • It Looks Like Jim Banks Is Closer to His Next Big Move (senate run to replace Braun)

    12/01/2022 5:55:54 AM PST · by cotton1706 · 2 replies ^ | 12/1/22 | Rebecca Downs
    There's been chatter for some time now about Sen. Mike Braun's (R-IN) next move. Braun was first elected in 2018, beating out one-term incumbent, then Sen. Joe Donnelly, a Democrat. Rather than run for reelection, though, it's looking more likely that he'll run for governor to replace term-limited Eric Holcomb, a Republican who's considered something of a RINO. As POLITICO's Adam Wren reported on Wednesday, Braun filed paperwork to run for governor on Tuesday. When it comes to who will fill Braun's seat, that could very likely be Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), who there's been just as much chatter about....

    Newly minted Twitter CEO and owner Elon Musk revealed Wednesday that under previously leadership, the social media giant did in fact interfere in elections.

    Oakland, California, is set to give adult residents vouchers to donate to candidates for local office every other year, according to The San Francisco Chronicle. Nearly 74% of the city’s voters approved Measure W, mandating that the city biannually send four $25 dollar vouchers to residents 18 years of age and older for donations to mayoral, City Council or school board candidates, the outlet reported. The program will be paid for with city general funds and include legal permanent residents who lack U.S. citizenship.

  • WE’RE BEING LIED TO: Results Provided by Media Are Not Derived from Flashdrives Coming from Precincts

    gateway pundit ^ | 11/29/2022 | joe hoft
    The use of flash drives in the election process has been well documented. New evidence suggests that these flash drives aren’t used for reporting election results by the media. We first became aware of the use of flash drives during the 2020 Election when an individual in Milwaukee misplaced a flash drive and was forced to turn around and go get it at about the same time that 145,000 votes were recorded for Joe Biden only in the state. There were other reports on the misuse of flash drives and the related lack of controls that we shared over the...
  • County Election Officials in Arizona, Pennsylvania Refuse to Certify Midterm Election Results

    American Greatness ^ | 29 Nov, 2022 | Eric Lendrum
    On Monday, election officials in two counties in the swing states of Arizona and Pennsylvania declined to certify the results of the midterm elections in their respective counties, potentially bringing overall certification to a halt for both states. ABC News reports that Republican election officials in Cochise County, Arizona and Luzerne County, Pennsylvania voted to reject their official certification measures. Cochise voted straight Republican on November 8th, supporting gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake and U.S. Senate candidate Blake Masters, while Luzerne County voted for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Josh Shapiro and Republican Senate nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz. The vote in Cochise County...
  • McCarthy says he will not drop out of speaker contention

    House Republicans’ speaker nominee Kevin McCarthy does not yet have enough votes to win a floor election in January, but he told reporters Tuesday he will not drop out of the running and plans to take the fight to the floor if necessary. “We’ll have 218,” the California Republican said, referring to the number of votes necessary to win a majority of the House in the floor election. “I'll get there.” Before the Thanksgiving recess, the House Republican Conference nominated McCarthy for speaker. He earned 188 votes in the secret-ballot conference nomination. His opponent, Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs, earned 31...
  • Charitable journalists giving Ron DeSantis sage advice on how to win in 2024

    I mean, clearly these leftists in the media have the conservative’s best interest at heart. Ron DeSantis just won the previously purple state of Florida by 20%, and now altruistic leftists are giving him advice on how to win a national election. These people, thinly disguised as journalists, have no desire for a Republican to win the presidency, or anything else, so conservative leaders should never take their “advice.” Their “advice” is meant to reduce a candidate’s support among Republicans, derailing the conservative cause. In a recent piece published by The Hill, journalists Amie Parnes and Max Greenwood lamented DeSantis’...

    A county in Pennsylvania that didn’t have enough paper ballots on Election Day failed to certify the results of the Nov. 8 midterms by the Nov. 28 deadline.The Luzerne County Board of Elections split 2–2 to certify the results, while one member abstained from voting. It’s unclear what the next steps are.Republican board members Alyssa Fusaro and Jim Mangan voted no, while Democrat members Denise Williams and Audrey Serniak voted for the certification, according to the Times Leader. Daniel Schramm, also a Democrat, was the lone board member who abstained.Fusaro and Mangan said the ballot shortage on Nov. 8 that...

  • McCarthy: If GOP Plays Games in Speaker Elections, Dems ‘Could End Up Picking Who the Speaker Is’ (then step aside!)

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said Monday on Newsmax TV’s “Spicer & Co.” that if Republican members “play games,” the Democrats may end up picking the next House speaker. Anchor Sean Spicer said, “We’ve had a couple of these folks that say that they won’t vote for you on the show. When we ask them what they want, they list a couple of rules, concessions that they want. And we say, well, if you get those concessions, will you vote for McCarthy, ‘Well, we’re not sure.’ Well, then, who do you want your candidate to be? ‘We don’t know...

    The Diplomat ^ | November 23, 2022 | Sebastian Strangio
    The country’s main Islamic party, PAS, successfully capitalized on the public’s growing disenchantment with the Malay political establishment.At the time of writing, Malaysia remains in political limbo after the country’s fifteenth general election delivered a hung parliament. With none of the major parties or coalitions able to form a government on their own, the country awaits the intervention of the country’s king to decide whether the next government will be headed by a multiethnic, progressive bloc led by veteran opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, or a conservative Malay Muslim coalition led by former prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin. But whoever ends...
  • The feds investigated McDonalds’ broken ice cream machines; but we’re told not to complain about Arizona’s broken voting machines

    Even the mainstream media admits there were “widespread glitches” with Arizona voting machines on Election Day this year. But for some reason official don’t seem concerned. How different from reports last year that the Federal Trade Commission was investigating McDonalds over breakdowns in ice cream machines. See, for example, this NPR article: “Feds Are Reportedly Looking Into Why McDonald's Ice-Cream Machines Are Always Busted”. Double-scoop standard, anyone?

    After a disappointing midterm, there is nothing more important than getting your mind right for the road ahead. A lot of clear-eyed, hardworking, patriotic Americans are down in the dumps right now. Understandably so. The midterms were an utter disappointment. Midnight mail-in ballot hauls have completely upended elections, transforming almost certain MAGA victories in Arizona and elsewhere into uphill legal battles likely to suffer slow strangulation in Establishment-coddling courts. If America had properly functioning democratic elections where only legal citizens voted secretly and securely after first establishing their identification, Republicans would have a hundred-seat margin in the House. Instead, centrist...

    There has been a great deal of discussion of late about how the midterm elections were rigged, if not with outright fraud, at the very least with mail-in ballots and in so many other ways that elections can be manipulated to achieve the desired result. But what is the end game? Where does the Democrat Party want to be in five years, or ten or twenty? We saw that very clearly on September 1, 2022, when Joe Biden made his infamous speech with the red and black background. Biden gave a speech that was without parallel in American history. It...
  • Taiwan's voters appear to be tired of US-China tensions: President Tsai Ing Wen's Party suffered multiple losses in local and municipal mayoral elections.

    Something unusual just happened in the wake of the latest round of elections in Taiwan and we should probably be paying closer attention to this. Following the announcement of the election results (which they somehow managed to tally in a single day, though that is now apparently impossible in the United States), President Tsai Ing-wen immediately stepped down as the head of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), the ruling party on the island, for now, at least. She’s not leaving office as the President since she wasn’t up for reelection this week. But her party suffered multiple losses in local...

    A Williamson County municipal election on October 26, 2021, “produced end-of-day tape reconciliation reports that seriously undercounted the number of ballots actually cast.” If not for an astute poll worker and a small group of concerned citizens who formed a group called the Tennessee Voters for Election Integrity (TVEI), the anomalies and QR code failure errors would not have been investigated. The undercount and other issues were found in six Dominion scanners in three distinct voting centers in Franklin, Tennessee. While these were not the only issues found in Williamson, the undercounted ballots were of interest to two men investigating...

    aiwan President Tsai Ing-wen resigned as head of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) on Saturday after her strategy to frame local elections as showing defiance to China's rising bellicosity failed to pay off and win public support. The elections for mayors, county chiefs and local councillors are ostensibly about domestic issues such as the COVID-19 pandemic and crime, and those elected will not have a direct say on China policy. But Tsai had recast the election as being more than a local vote, saying the world is watching how Taiwan defends its democracy amid military tensions with China, which...
