How Crooked Will the Crooked Dems Be When Counting Votes?

Trump thinks he has a chance in Pennsylvania

By Andrea Widburg

President Trump has a big challenge in Pennsylvania. In an honest election, he could win that bellwether state. However, it’s likely that the election won’t be honest. Thus, if Trump wishes to win, he needs to get such an overwhelming number of votes in that state that the Democrats cannot pull together sufficient fraudulent votes to knock him out. On Saturday, Trump held four rallies in Pennsylvania, showing that he thinks he can beat the fraud. It helps that he promised to protect fracking, something Biden will un-do.

According to Robert Cahaly of Trafalgar Group, Trump should win in Pennsylvania. The problem is potential fraud:

Trump isn’t there yet in Pennsylvania, according to Cahaly. “Right now, we’ve got him down in Pennsylvania,” he says, “I think if it were held today, the undecided would break toward Trump and there’d be some hidden vote. He’d probably win Pennsylvania. But I’m going to give a caveat on only Pennsylvania. I believe Pennsylvania to be the No. 1 state that Trump could win and have stolen due to voter fraud.”

Chief Justice Roberts helped the potential for fraud by being the deciding vote that allowed the all-Democrat Pennsylvania Supreme Court (rather than the legislature) to change the voting rules. Pennsylvania can now count votes through Friday, November 6, provided that the absentee ballots are postmarked by November 3. The Democrat Pennsylvania court reached this holding because 16,000 votes arrived late in 2016 and remained uncounted. Trump won Pennsylvania by only 44,000 votes.

Trump is therefore determined this time around to win Pennsylvania by a huge margin. On Saturday, the human dynamo held four rallies in Pennsylvania. All four rallies were incredibly well-attended:https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1322583834446172160&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.americanthinker.com%2Fblog%2F2020%2F11%2Ftrump_thinks_he_has_a_chance_in_pennsylvania.html&siteScreenName=AmericanThinker&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px

Thank you, PENNSYLVANIA!— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) November 1, 2020

That kind of passionate support from long-time Trump supporters and newbies promises a strong voter turn-out, one Trump hopes will defeat any efforts at fraud. He’s relying on the fact that, while Philadelphia may be Democrat territory, outside of the big city, people are conservative. (Note: Philadelphia may not be quite so Democrat-oriented if the Firefighters Union is anything to go by. It just endorsed Trump by a two-to-one margin.) While non-urban conservatives historically have had low voter turnout, this year could be different.

Trump’s also not taking any chances. While in Butler, Trump announced that he’d signed an executive order to protect fracking:

“Moments ago I signed an executive order to protect Pennsylvania fracking and block any effort to undermine energy production in your state,” Trump told a crowd in Butler, Pa., earlier Saturday. 

“So if one of these maniacs come along say end fracking, I signed it on the beautiful Marine One,” the president said.

In addition, Trump would ask officials from the Energy Department and Interior Department to advise on how technology or land management could be used to expand the use of fracking, but the details at that time were still being finalized. 

Fracking is a good thing all around. It brings jobs to America, sees energy production taking place in a nation with strong environmental protections, lowers energy costs that drag down the economy, means America is no longer dependent on foreign countries, and defunds dictatorships. Indeed, part of why Arab nations are lining up to make peace with Israel is because their leaders recognize that they will see less oil revenue in the future. They need to diversify their economies, with Israel being a big player in any future regional diversification.

Looking at those Pennsylvania crowds and looking at Trump making good on his promise to bring jobs and energy back to America, it’s hard for a pessimist like me not to feel some scary optimism trying to creep up. I already did my bit by voting, and you should too. The lines will be long on November 3, and it’s best to vote while you can.

Senile Joe’s Not Awake!

 BY JOHN HINDERAKER  at PowerLine:

WHO CAN TELL AN EAGLE FROM A BLUE HEN?

Not Joe Biden, apparently. In his latest campaign brain failure, Biden touted his longstanding association with Philadelphia by pointing out that he was wearing an Eagles jacked. Only he wasn’t:https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?creatorScreenName=powerlineUS&dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1323018859301974017&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.powerlineblog.com%2Farchives%2F2020%2F11%2Fwho-can-tell-an-eagle-from-a-blue-hen.php&siteScreenName=powerlineUS&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px


It’s a small thing–or would be, if Biden could go ten minutes without displaying his rapidly failing mental capacity. Meanwhile, I have long wondered: what is a blue hen, anyway? And why is it the mascot of the University of Delaware?

Those who know can answer in the comments. For now, here are the logos of the Philadelphia Eagles and the University of Delaware Blue Hens. They are not easy to confuse, although, to give Biden his due, both are birds:

Biden, the Joe, IN MORE TROUBLE!!

Joe Biden’s Hand in Corruption, Subversion and Crime in Guatemala

By James Simpson at American Thinker:

In 2014 and 2015, then-Vice President Joe Biden traveled to Guatemala three times to pressure the government to maintain a United Nations body known as the International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG). CICIG was established in Guatemala in 2006 under the pretext of prosecuting “crimes committed by members of illegal security forces and clandestine security structures,” during Guatemala’s long civil war. Instead, CICIG — an international body unaccountable to Guatemalan law, worked with Guatemala’s Justice Ministry to arrest and jail the left’s opponents. Many remain illegally detained to this day without trial. Two prominent doctors and a Guatemalan congressman died in jail. All suffered ill health, did not receive proper treatment and were detained much longer than legally allowed. None got a trial. All were absolved following their deaths.

Biden met with then-Guatemalan President Otto Pérez Molina, who did not want to renew CICIG’s charter. The Obama administration had promised a $1 billion aid package to Northern Triangle countries (Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador), but Biden made the aid and upcoming trade agreements contingent upon renewing CICIG’s contract. First cajoling then threatening, Biden finally announced, “The CICIG is staying, period.” Biden used this same tactic in Ukraine, where he bragged about threatening to withhold loan guarantees until the Ukrainian government fired the prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden. Biden also sought Pérez’s help in extending CICIG’s rule to El Salvador and Honduras.

Pérez reluctantly agreed to renew CICIG’s charter. He was then pressured to resign under accusations of corruption and stripped by the Guatemalan Congress of legal immunity. The day after he resigned he was arrested and thrown in jail. He has remained there ever since, without trial. In a Daily Caller interview from jail, Pérez called these efforts, “a coup without bullets.”

Pérez said that, “CICIG amounts to a new form of U.S. interference in Guatemala’s affairs and that his country has surrendered its sovereignty over its justice system by allowing the unit to operate.”

CICIG’s litany of abuses includes arbitrary arrest, detention and interrogation without charges or trial, fabricated evidence, illegal break-ins and denial of due process, pretrial detention for years longer than allowed by Guatemalan law and many other abuses. Some of the charges it has brought are valid, given endemic corruption in Guatemala. But CICIG’s goal was not to stem corruption, rather to use it as a pretext to dispatch the left’s enemies and install vastly more corrupt individuals who will advance the Communist cause in Guatemala.

CICIG’s leader from 2013 forward was Ivan Velásquez Gómez, a former judge from Colombia with close ties to the Colombian narco-terrorist group, FARC. Former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe has said that as a judge, Velásquez battled to absolve the Colombian narcoterrorists of their decades of crime and terrorist atrocities.

In addition to Velásquez Another key player has been Claudia Paz y Paz, chosen to be Guatemala’s Attorney General in 2010 under pressure from CICIG and Obama’s Ambassador to Guatemala, Stephen McFarland. Paz y Paz is a communist guerrilla sympathizer. Her father was a member of the Castro-supported Rebel Armed Forces (FAR) that assassinated U.S. Ambassador John Gordon Mein in 1968 and Germany’s ambassador to Guatemala, Karl von Spreti, two years later.

Paz y Paz oversaw numerous extra-judicial arrests and confinement of political opponents. She was accused of giving illegal orders to judges and her own prosecutors, and shielding from legal action bands of armed leftist militias who roam rural areas terrorizing the indigenous peoples. The militias are remnants from Guatemala’s civil war, in truth a Castro-supported communist insurgency (1960-1996).

She particularly targeted the military, which defeated the communist insurgency with help from the rural population. Military men have received multiple life sentences for “crimes against humanity” while judges disbar evidence proving their innocence and guilt of the guerrillas.

In 2012, a young prosecutor named Gilda Aguilar attempted to arrest members of one of these militias. Paz y Paz dropped the charges, calling the militia a “human-rights group.” She threw Aguilar off the case and launched an investigation of her. Three weeks later Aguilar narrowly escaped an assassination attempt by the same group. Instead of investigating, the prosecutor asked the court to dismiss the case — as though it had never happened. Aguilar quit and brought dereliction of duty charges against Paz y Paz.

The Obama administration pressured President Pérez to assure Paz y Paz’s reappointment when her term was up in 2014, knowing full well the allegations against her. They similarly supported appointment and advancement of many other radicals, and the State Department continues to do so.

The indigenous populations of Guatemala have faced the brunt of the communist offensive in Guatemala since the beginning of the civil war. With the Obama administration’s full knowledge, armed leftist militias, Paz y Paz’s “human rights groups” control rural areas, sabotage or block desperately needed economic development and engage in terrorism and crime. The 20-minute video embedded below shares moving testimony from people terrorized by these groups:

The militias’ spread was enthusiastically supported by the Obama administration. Their activities dramatically increased with the administration’s promotion of leftists like Judge Gloria Porras and Attorney General Paz y Paz to influential positions in Guatemala’s legal system. The increase in crime over this period is shown in the colored areas of the map below. They are referred to charitably as “Social Conflict Zones.”

Let Us Pray President Trump Will Beat the Biden Fascists!

MY ELECTION PREDICTIONS

Late Thursday night, I taped an appearance with host Rowan Dean on Australia’s Sky News. In that interview, I previewed the predictions I made last night during our VIP Live broadcast. This is the edited version of my interview as it appeared on Australian television:

I think President Trump will be re-elected, and I think the Republicans will hold the Senate, narrowly. The tide is obviously moving in a Republican direction, and I expect that to continue for the next three days. Joe Biden’s inadequacy is obvious to everyone who pays attention, and I think the press’s efforts to protect him have become not just transparent but laughable. So I think Tuesday night will be enjoyable for conservatives.

But enough of predictions. We will know soon enough–within the next seven weeks or so, at any rate. But I don’t think the election will be close enough to turn on either voter fraud or lawsuits.
