Thieves

Ugh.  Yesterday in Comments came some apprehension about the godless Socialists preparing to steal the election via vote fraud.  Then I saw this:

A total of 353 counties in 29 U.S. states have 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens, according to an analysis by Judicial Watch.
In addition, eight states, including Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont, were found to have statewide registered voter totals that exceeded 100 percent of eligible voters, according to the nonprofit government watchdog.
Judicial Watch compared the registration data available for 37 states with the U.S. Census Bureau’s most recently available American Community Survey (ACS) numbers for the period 2014–2018 on a county-by-county basis.
“This new study shows 1.8 million excess, or ‘ghost’ voters, in 353 counties across 29 states,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement announcing the study Oct. 16. “This data highlights the recklessness of mailing blindly ballots and ballot applications to voter registration lists. Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections.”

I’m not quite sure what we can do with this — by “we”, I mean us ordinary folks — but I sure as hell hope that POTUS has a contingency plan or two up his sleeve.

And then there’s this:

Trump Resistance Plans ‘Mass Mobilization’ After Election To Shut Down The Country If Biden Doesn’t Win
What kinds of actions these might be are stated in a “Strategic framework for action following the 2020 election” that sketches out their plans for rioting and attacking American institutions and life until Biden is installed as president. It claims if Trump declares victory that will mark “the start of the coup.”

And this:

President Trump supporters in two small New England towns have gotten menacing letters threatening to burn down their homes.

And this:

A supporter of Democrat candidate Joe Biden was arrested after he shot at two Trump supporters who honked at him in a pick-up truck while he was putting up a Black Lives Matter sign.

I think I’m going to spend the rest of the day at the range.

Not kidding, either.

5 Worst Notes

…that Amy Coney Barrett could have written on her pad while being interrogated  grilled  questioned by the Senate Democrats.

I’ll start the ball rolling:

  • “Check out Becky’s new beef stew recipe on Facebook.”
  • “If Scalia could see this clownshow, he’d be laughing his ass off.”
  • “# questions that have bothered me:  ___”
  • “Pick up eggs at 7-11 on the way home.”
  • “Also cream.”

Sleeping Dragon

I’ve heard the conservative-leaning electorate described as the “slumbering giant” or similar, and this article gives several good reasons why we are quietly waiting our turn to vote rather than burning down Harvard or the New York Times  building.  (Okay, also because that would be illegal, and we have jobs and such.)

More to the point is why we are quiet at the moment.  Just out of curiosity, can anyone give me a single instance where a conservative voter has gone around yanking “Biden” or “Clinton” yard signs out of people’s gardens?  Not one?  I can’t think of any either.  Nor, by the way, have I read any reports of cars being keyed or otherwise damaged simply because they sported a “Howard Dean For President”, “Clinton/Gore” or “Biden/Harris” bumper sticker — and in both the above, had there been any such incidents, you can be damn sure that it would have got full coverage on the nightly news or in the Washington Post.

No:  all such hostility has come from the Left, pretty much as it always has.

That said, just because we aren’t crucifying the board of the Soros Foundation en masse  or hanging random Pantifa rioters from lamp posts does not mean that we aren’t seething with rage — and believe me, we have every good reason to be enraged, not just at the above but also at the way that Big Government has become the equivalent of a giant weight pressing down on all of us.  (Here’s a little boo-hoo article from City Journal which talks about the topic in detail.)

In three weeks’ time we’ll see of all the above is true enough to bring out the conservative vote in droves, and keep the Left away from the levers of power.

Just don’t believe the polls.  As the first linked article suggests, they’re asking questions in a frame which no longer exists, and in any event, the Left has a real interest in making us think that we don’t stand a chance — just as they did when that Trotskyist bitch Hillary Clinton ran for office in 2016 — so the polls are not to be believed.

Here’s what I think:  the sleeping conservative dragon is going to wake up, and I don’t think the Left are going to like the results.  If it were me, I’d be warming up the helicopters’ engines and handing out pre-noosed ropes — we already have sufficient guns and ammo — in preparation for the Glorious Day (as Mr. Free Market puts it).

But like all conservatives, I’d be satisfied with a massive Trump / Republican electoral victory next month.  And for that, the Left should be grateful.

Sun Sets In West

…and Democrats lie.

A Texas Democratic House candidate voted as recently as last year using her parents’ Dallas address while she was living and working in California.
Helane “Lulu” Sawsan Seikaly, who is challenging Republican incumbent Van Taylor in Texas’s Third Congressional District, worked in California until at least last year as an attorney for a Sacramento-based law firm and as a professor at the University of California Davis. Using an address linked to her parents, however, Seikaly voted in Texas in both 2016 and 2018, public records show.
A couple of weeks after filing to run for the House last December, Seikaly switched her registration from Dallas to Collin County, Texas.

Not that it matters, because she’s going to get her ass handed to her in November.

How do I know this?  Because this is my district, and in the last presidential election Taylor had a greater margin of victory (64%) than Trump (62%).  He has an A+ from the TSRA, and we loves us our guns here.  (From memory, Seikaly declined to answer the TSRA’s questionnaire on guns and gun rights, which is a dead giveaway in Texas.)  Taylor’s also a serious conservative — I’ve met him — and he has pretty much continued in the tradition of our long-time, beloved (and much-missed) paisan, Sam Johnson, who retired in 2016.

“Lulu” has no chance, none.

A corollary to all this is that if the polls are showing that Seikaly is only one point behind Taylor, the polls are hopelessly biased, just as they were in 2016.  But we all knew that anyway.

All The Usual Crap

Oh, this is just too precious for words.  From our favorite Commie politician comes this little zinger:

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) touted her intersectional oppression in a recent interview with the New York Times, lamenting that she constantly has to “deal with the hate of anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, anti-blackness, but also with sexism” in the United States.

I haven’t seen that many cards played since the last World Poker Championship.

I dunno, Omar;  I have no idea what you are like as a person — although there seems to be mounting evidence that you are a fairly unpleasant and dishonest individual — but your religion, ancestry, skin color and gender have nothing to do with the reason people dislike you and attack you.

We conservatives dislike and attack all Communists, of which you are an examplar.  Your policies and political positions are, to be honest, anti-American, and you are the worst kind of immigrant — one who arrives in a new country and then sets about trying to change it to resemble more their country of origin.  Then, when people use their freedom of speech (a freedom not especially common in your homeland) to attack your politics, you cry foul and assume that it’s all because you’re a Black Muslim immigrant woman.

It isn’t.  It’s because you’re a fucking seditious Communist, you rancid bitch.

Signed,

Another, but totally different, immigrant from Africa.
