    [about 75% of the way down the web page] [allegations] on February 13, 2023, the U.S. House Committee on Armed Services and U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Accountability disclosed the Air Force had improperly revealed the unredacted records of at least 11 Republican congressional candidates, who are Air Force veterans, to the research firm Due Diligence Group. The Due Diligence Group is a vendor for Democratic Party campaign committees. “The USAF leaked information of USAF candidates in the 2022 midterms to a DEMOCRAT OPPO research firm,” Luna tweeted on February 27, 2023. “Yes, I also have reason to believe...

  • Election Integrity Watchdog Finds California Lost 10.9 Million Mail-In Ballots in 2022 Midterms

    An election integrity group said 10.9 million out of a total 22.1 million ballots that had been mailed out to registered voters during the 2022 midterm elections went “unaccounted for,” according to a Jan. 18 report.“Mail voting practices have an insurmountable information gap,” the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) said on Monday. “The public cannot know how many ballots were disregarded, delivered to wrong mailboxes, or even withheld from the proper recipient by someone at the same address.”The watchdog released the two-page report (pdf) detailing what it called “the failures” of California’s first mass-mail balloting election following the passage of...

    After flooding local election offices with private money to alter election operations in key battleground states ahead of the 2020 presidential contest, Democrat-aligned groups have been looking for new ways to take over America’s future elections — and a new bombshell report reveals just how they plan to do it. Released by the Honest Elections Project (HEP) and the John Locke Foundation, the shocking report reveals how the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence — a self-professed “nonpartisan collaborative” claiming to bring together election officials for the stated goal of developing “a set of shared standards and values” — is actually...
  • Trump says ‘abortion issue’ responsible for GOP underperforming expectations in midterms

    Former President Trump blamed the “abortion issue” for Republicans underperforming expectations in the 2022 midterm elections. Trump said in a post on Truth Social on Sunday that many in the GOP handled the issue poorly, especially those who “firmly” insisted on no exceptions to bans on the procedure, including in instances of rape and incest. He also said he is not to blame for the party’s performance, responding to many in the GOP who have pointed to him as a reason for its losses.

    President Biden’s approval rating has ticked up following the 2022 midterm elections, but remains lower than it was at this time last year. CNN’s December survey found 46 percent said they approve of the job Biden is doing as president, up from 41 percent in late October. Last year, 49 percent of those surveyed said they approved of the president’s job performance, but his rating has been steadily below that number since December 2021. Respondents rated Biden lower on economic issues than overall job performance, with 36 percent expressing approval for the president’s leadership of the economy. Thirty-three percent of...

    President Biden’s job approval rating is holding steady in the wake of the midterm elections, with around 43 percent of Americans still supporting him, according to a new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll. An October AP-NORC poll found a similar 43 percent approval rating for the president. The polling shows there hasn’t been much change, at least for Biden, since the midterm elections, when Democrats exceeded some observers’ expectations — beating back a red wave in the House and capturing the Senate. Taking a step back, Biden has dropped from a 48 percent approval rating a year...

    It was quite head-spinning to see how instantly and gleefully many Republicans of the high forehead class leapt to blaming Donald Trump for the less-red-wavy-than-expected 2022 Midterms. And leapt from there to condemning his 2024 presidential run. But before lifting new champion Governor DeSantis to their shoulders, the Trump-trashers would do well to praise Caesar rather than burying him. The Trump magic is clear in the Midterm numbers - 92% of Trump’s endorsees won their primaries, as did 86% of his general election picks. The nay-sayers claiming his 2020 coattails were toxic in 2022 - even though he had no...

    Democratic consultant and political commentator James Carville said Monday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that in November’s midterm elections, early numbers are looking like black voter turnout was down. Carville said, “There is a potentially troubling sign, you have to wait until the analysts and these people get ahold of the final numbers of who turned out, but a lot of good ones think black turnout in Georgia is as low as it was since 2006.”

    *snip* In the midst of a terrible economy and a crime wave, Democrats were boosted by a demographic least likely to share adult concerns about the economy, schools and public safety, and most likely to be animated by phantom ideological narratives about social justice, abortion and global warming. Democrats enjoyed the highest turnout for younger voters in a generation with a 31% turnout. Especially in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Michigan. That doesn’t just happen. Rock the Vote, which claims to be nonpartisan and can only operate only on the condition of not expressing a party preference, published an officially branded table,...

    I don’t trust the results of the midterms. I suspect I will not be confident in election outcomes until verified citizens must sign-up during a short registration period immediately before elections and the voting only takes place at the polls on Election Day. It could be a long wait. The reports and common-sense indications of fraud are everywhere. Mail-in ballots are, once again, the primary suspect but voting machines and corrupt officials seem to be implicated as well. Anecdotally, Kari Lake was up by 10 points in the run-up to the Arizona Governor’s race. She ended up losing by a...

    The red wave ebbed into a pink splash. The Democrats are crowing and claiming victory while Republicans look for scapegoats. But what can you expect when it isn't a level playing field, and the non-socialist team is fragmented? During the 2022 campaign, I chuckled while seeing ads where the same Democrats who voted for all of Biden's destructive programs tried to sound reasonable while calling all the Republicans "extremists" for opposing programs that were destroying the economy, the police, and the military. Well funded Democrat ads ran all day, far outpacing Republican ads. At the same time, most news programs...

    Democrats would not have had such a good election night without the support of independent voters. ...Despite plenty of polling this year showing that independents were, like Republicans, primarily concerned with the state of the economy and inflation, they ended up making nuanced decisions in key statewide races — and that worked to benefit Democrats.... ...Perhaps the most confounding result for pundits across the spectrum was how the negative perception voters, and especially independents, had of President Joe Biden’s job performance and the state of the economy did not translate into a massive swing for Republicans. But voters weren’t viewing...

    For many Republicans, the final midterm election results were surprising— especially in the states of Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania. Based on polling, it looked likely that Kari Lake, Adam Laxalt, and Mehmet Oz would win their contests. I believe that there are only three likely explanations for the unexpected results: late campaign surges, polling error, or aggressive ballot-harvesting.A late surge?Some Republicans are falling for an illogical narrative put forth by Democrats and the mainstream media. It goes like this: Although Republican candidates were higher in the polls, at the last minute people voted for Democrats because:they feared the end of...

    The congressional midterm elections are thankfully over. Predictions of a red wave, including by yours truly, didn’t materialize. Instead, it was more of a pink trickle with the GOP flipping the House. The Senate is still up for grabs, with the best outcome for the GOP being a 50-50 split, depending on the Georgia run-off results. Red wave predictions made sense at the time, given President Biden’s unpopularity and incompetence, leading to a declining America. This includes 40-year high inflation, a recession, open borders, energy shortages, supply chain disruptions, World War III simmering in Ukraine, and a woke culture ruining...

    When the 2020 presidential election produced surprising results leaning toward Democrat candidates, eyebrows were raised. But in the recent midterm election in Arizona, given the previous election snafus, situations arose that even go against the state laws regarding elections.Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake’s campaign was confident that she had the votes to win, but at the last minute, her competitor pulled ahead amid questionable circumstances. Lake and her campaign have now called for a redo of the election in Maricopa County in light of all the problems that occurred on Election Day, and her call has been answered by...
