2020 Election

Query the Google effect

Featured image I wasn’t familiar with the work of Robert Epstein on the impact of big tech on our elections before Tucker Carlson had him on last night to discuss the possible impact of Google on the 2020 elections. I have posted the video below. Epstein is an interesting guy. He is a psychologist by training and is in fact the former editor of Psychology Today. Among his research papers is one »

Democrats confront a new reality — a tiny majority in the House

Featured image When the dust settles from the 2020 election, House Democrats will find themselves with a very slender majority, possibly just four seats more than the majority threshold of 218. Whatever the precise number, the margin will be the smallest in the House in two decades. Thus, just a few defections on any legislation will prevent the Democrats from passing it, unless some Republicans join them. Few if any Republican are »

Electing radical judges, the new frontier in wrecking our justice system

Featured image We have written often about the Soros-funded campaign to elect radical prosecutors. Its success has helped undermine the criminal justice system in St. Louis, for example. The next step for the same hard-left crowd might well be to elect radical judges. Doing so can erect a second barrier — a backup — to punishing criminals. In Maryland, four outside challengers won election to circuit courts this month. It’s extremely rare »

Trump Team Disowns Powell

Featured image Sidney Powell’s claim that the presidential election was stolen using Dominion voting machines has dominated post-election controversy over voter fraud, but the Examiner reports that the Trump campaign is distancing itself from that claim: With Trump-allied insiders distancing themselves from massive and unproven election fraud allegations being made by Sidney Powell, the president’s legal team announced on Sunday that the attorney has no direct role in their efforts.

A word with Elise Stefanik (2) [with comment by Paul]

Featured image This concludes my report on an interview with Rep. Elise Stefanik yesterday afternoon. I posted the first installment here, including my daughter Eliana’s 2014 NR profile of her just before she became the youngest woman elected to Congress at the time. I mentioned to Rep. Stefanik how much I admired women standing up to run for office on our side because of the abuse to which they subject themselves. Unlike »

A word with Elise Stefanik

Featured image After noting the strong women candidates who contributed to the Republican pickups in the House when I wrote about them this past weekend, I thought it might make sense to speak with Rep. Elise Stefanik. She had a hand in all those races and kindly gave me a telephone interview this afternoon. Indeed, she stayed on with me until she had answered all my questions. Do you have anything more, »

Georgia on not enough minds

Featured image RealClearPolitics has posted Matt Towery’s knowledgeable take on the Georgia Senate runoffs. Towery’s column is “A realistic take on Georgia’s Senate runoffs.” Towery’s “realistic take” injects a sobering dose of reality from a variety of perspectives into our view of the the races. I hope President Trump can find his way down there to do his thing for Senators Perdue and Loeffler and that Republicans can otherwise find their way »

Do Trump’s Lawyers Know What They Are Doing?

Featured image Today several of President Trump’s lawyers, including Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, held a press conference in which they alleged that they have convincing if not conclusive evidence that the presidential election was rigged, and that in addition to garden variety voter fraud, hundreds of thousands of votes were added to Joe Biden’s totals through electronic manipulation. This is the familiar issue that involves Dominion and SmartMatic software. Here is »

Warnock’s greatest hits

Featured image The Free Beacon’s Elizabeth Matamoros draws attention to the video by Nikki Haley (via her Stand For America PAC) putting the knock on Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock. The video gives us the Reader’s Digest version of Warnock’s greatest hits in 90 seconds (below). Haley tweeted it out yesterday afternoon. Point 1 highlights Warnock’s defense of Jeremiah Wright as “a preacher and a prophet.” Does the context support the »

Will Gun Owners Swing Georgia Senate Races to GOP?

Featured image Democrats are pouring into Georgia from across the country, trying to wrest control of the Senate away from Republicans. Some are talking about establishing fake residence so they can vote, others are going door to door, manning phone banks and so on. But one issue they probably won’t talk about much is gun control. With good reason. The Washington Free Beacon calculates that Joe Biden’s gun proposals would amount to »

Warnock’s Wright stuff (2)

Featured image I’ve been saying for a while now that Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock revives the spirit of Jeremiah Wright and reveals the true spirit of the Democratic Party. Warnock is the perfectest herald of the spirit. The Washington Free Beacon has assigned reporter Alana Goodman to the Warnock beat in advance of the Georgia Senate runoff in January. From her most recent discovery in the Warnock archives we can »

Voter Fraud: The Crime That Must Not Be Mentioned

Featured image Following the election, the social media monopolies did their best to ban discussion of voter fraud, lest confidence in Joe Biden’s “victory” be shaken. Today, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on their platforms’ political biases and influence. I don’t know what to make of Dorsey. He looks like a homeless person and, based on videos I have seen of his »

Warnock Hates the Military [with comment by Paul]

Featured image The Democrats’ hopes of regaining control of the Senate rest on the “Reverend” Raphael Warnock. Warnock is a hard-core leftist and bigot in the Jeremiah Wright mold, as Paul has shown in several posts. Today another Warnock video came to light, this one perhaps the most devastating of all to his candidacy. In 2011, Warnock said in a sermon that “nobody can serve God and the military.” Here is the »

Warnock’s Wright stuff

Featured image The Reverend Raphael Warnock is working his Ossoff to revive memories of Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Wright is a toxic figure who served as an omen of the future of the Democratic Party. Back in 2008, Wright proved so toxic that Obama implausibly sought to distance himself from Wright with Obama’s ridiculous speech on race, another sign of things to come. As a Senate candidate, Warnock needs to distance himself from »

Raphael Warnock, God’s gift to the GOP

Featured image If you’re a Democrat and you’re not unhinged, the best reason to support Reverend Raphael Warnock for the Senate — maybe the only reason — is to help Democrats regain control of that body. There’s little else to recommend electing the wild-eyed radical race hustler. But the Reverend isn’t having it. He insists that his race against Sen. Kelly Loeffler isn’t about control of the Senate. Instead, it’s “about the »

Conspiracy Theory, Or Stolen Election?

Featured image In the aftermath of the election, many questions have emerged not just about individual instances of voter fraud or vote suppression, which are legion, but more systematic issues involving software and electronic vote tracking. We know, for example, that thousands of votes that were cast for President Trump in Michigan were improperly shifted to Joe Biden due to an alleged software “glitch.” I have no opinion on whether the election »

12 Republicans who flipped House seats

Featured image As of this morning, with five races yet to be called, RealClearPolitics notes that Republicans have picked up a net of 9 House seats. RCP projects that Republicans will pick up a net 10-13 seats when the counting is done. A few more excellent candidates helped the GOP hold House seats where there was no incumbent. I am thinking, for example, of Beth Van Duyne, one of the successful candidates »
