Voter Fraud

Conservatism Is Prohibited

Featured image I wrote earlier today about the Democrats’ unprecedented attempts to criminalize disagreement with their policies or criticism of their regime. These are more examples, from today’s news, of the suppression of conservative thought, not necessarily through criminal prosecution. First, Scott Adams’ “Dilbert” comic strip has lost 77 newspapers, apparently because it ridiculed “woke” doctrine: The cartoon strip Dilbert has been removed from almost 80 US newspapers after it started poking »

Fraud Pays

Featured image It is no secret that our federal, state and local governments waste enormous amounts of money. Neither is it a secret that outright fraud accounts for a significant part of that waste. My organization, which conducts quarterly polling in Minnesota, has twice asked the question, “What is your best estimate of the percentage of state spending that is wasted?” The results were identical: the first time, the median answer was »

An “Election Denier” Strikes Back

Featured image The “election denier” theme is one of the Democrats’ most obnoxious, given that the last time they accepted the election of a Republican president as legitimate was 1988. As Scott noted, Peter Doocy pointed out earlier today that White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is herself an “election denier.” In Arizona, gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake was on the receiving end of a question from a Democratic Party reporter: “You feel »

It Isn’t Hard to Cheat

Featured image Why does Joe Biden say Republicans are a “threat to democracy”? In part, because they worry about election fraud. From his infamous speech: They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election. … And they’re working right now, as I speak, in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers »

Election Integrity In Wisconsin

Featured image In the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election, President Trump and his allies brought numerous lawsuits, seeking to overturn the reported result in various states. Those efforts all failed, not necessarily because the cases’ arguments were not meritorious, and certainly not because voter fraud didn’t occur, but because there was no time to litigate the necessary factual issues between the election and Joe Biden’s inauguration. Wisconsin is a case in »

Who Are the Election Deniers?

Featured image Recently the Democrats have coined the phrase “election deniers” to smear those who worry about our lack of ballot security, as reflected in the 2020 election, by associating them with Holocaust deniers and other cranks. But who are the real election deniers? The Democrats haven’t conceded that a Republican was legitimately elected president since George H. W. Bush carried 40 states in 1988. The RNC put together this 12-minute video »

Move On? Please!

Featured image This morning Donald Trump emailed a “Statement” to his supporters about the Alabama Senate race. While nothing he said was surprising, I did find it clarifying: Last year I endorsed Mo Brooks for the U.S. Senate because I thought he was a Fighter, especially when it came to the Rigged and Stolen Presidential Election of 2020. The evidence is irrefutable. Then, out of nowhere, and for seemingly no reason, Mo »

Voter Fraud Today, Voter Fraud Tomorrow, Voter Fraud Forever!

Featured image Last week, the New York Times published a hit piece on our friend Cleta Mitchell. Cleta, a top-notch lawyer, was a partner in an international law firm until she had to resign because leftists besieged her law firm’s clients, demanding that she be fired. She is now working on election integrity issues for the Conservative Partnership Institute. The Times story lies from the top, beginning with its headline: “Lawyer Who »

From the Annals of Leftist Hysteria

Featured image Remember last year how Georgia’s new voting law was decried in newsrooms and boardrooms from sea to shining sea, and caused Major League Baseball to move the All Star game from Atlanta to Denver? Remember what President Biden said? Pepperidge Farms (and the internet) remembers: Well that was then, and this is now: Nice to see the Post refusing to back down from the adjective “controversial” to describe a voting »

A mule of our own

Featured image I haven’t seen Dinesh D’Souza’s 2000 Mules yet and can’t comment on it, but we have our very own mule in Minnesota. We have a pack of them, but I am thinking of the just-convicted mule Muse Mohamud Mohamed. Last year Mohamed testified before a grand jury conducting in an ongoing federal investigation of Minnesota’s system of “agent delivery” of absentee ballots He was convicted this week on two counts »

White House Spokeswoman Says 2016 Election Was Stolen

Featured image Jen Psaki is riding off into the MSNBC sunset, to be replaced by Karine Jean-Pierre, who, as we noted here, has freely engaged in both race-baiting and disinformation. The disinformation was about the 2018 Georgia governor’s race, which Jean-Pierre said was “stolen” by Governor Brian Kemp, who won by 54,000 votes. It turns out that Ms. Jean-Pierre has a broader affinity for election conspiracy theories. Today it came to light »

Stolen Elections, Then and Now

Featured image Jen Psaki is departing the White House to make money at MSNBC. Her replacement as White House Press Secretary is Karine Jean-Pierre, a lunatic lefty on several counts. But for now, let’s go with this: Jean-Pierre alleged that Georgia’s election for governor in 2018 was stolen: Stacey Abrams has made a career out of claiming that the 2018 election, which she lost by 54,000 votes, was fraudulent. Democrats across the »

More Evidence of 2020 Voter Fraud

Featured image John Lott has published a paper in which he applies three tests for voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. (I wrote about Lott’s analysis while it was still a work in progress here.) The paper is here. Lott begins by looking at adjacent precincts that are in different counties. He did this for Fulton County, Georgia and Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. The operative assumption is that precincts across the street »

Is ensuring election integrity anti-democratic?

Featured image Of course not. Yet Democrats and their media allies insist that it is. Take for example, the lead article in the Washington Post’s Sunday Outlook section. It’s by Sam Rosenfeld, an associate professor at Colgate University. Rosenfeld claims that democracy is “on the brink of disaster” in America. As evidence, he moans that “in 2021, Republican state legislatures passed new restrictions on voting access.” But these restrictions tend to ensure »

Final Thoughts On January 6

Featured image I had not intended to write anything about the protest that took place at the Capitol a year ago, but I was on two radio shows today and both hosts asked about it. There seems to be a good bit of interest. So here, for what they are worth, are my thoughts on that event, one year later. * My position on riots is simple and consistent. I am against »

E.J. Dionne’s bad advice to Democrats

Featured image E.J. Dionne advises Democrats on how they can avoid a “thumpin'” in this year’s congressional elections. Notice that Dionne isn’t offering a prescription for retaining a majority in the House. He’s merely talking about how not to “get crushed.” Dionne thereby exhibits realism. However, the same cannot be said of his strategy for escaping a shellacking. Dionne says the Democrats’ best hope is to make the 2022 election about democracy. »

Americans Don’t Buy the Democrats’ Line on Election Integrity

Featured image Democrats insist that there was little or no cheating in the 2020 election, and that election integrity measures are not just unnecessary but “racist.” Today’s Rasmussen survey indicates that a substantial majority of Americans don’t buy that line. First, these are the questions that Rasmussen asked: 1. How closely have you followed news stories about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s efforts to influence U.S. elections? 2. It has been reported that »
