Rudy and Sidney’s Krakentastic Spectacle, and What It Could Mean
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
We’re all in a terrible fix. The corruption of our institutions has stripped away the limits to which people will go in search of political power. Now is a good time to pray. Pray for Giuliani and Powell that they might bring the truth to those who can act on it, pray for those judges and legislators that they might have the courage to do the right thing despite the pressure, and perhaps real threats of violence, they’ll surely face, and pray for the country that we might resolve this mess with truth and justice.

The Plot Against Sidney
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
The biggest issue here is the integrity of electoral systems world wide. It is, in a word, democracy. Are computers subverting it? Have they made democracy obsolete? If this is true, and she is able to stop it, Sidney Powell may deserve a monument the size of Washington’s. Do I know for sure that these machines are corrupt or agents of corruption? No. But we absolutely need to find out. They should be confiscated, taken apart and subject to a thorough forensic examination from all angles, as should the software.

Waiting for Sidney
Roger Kimball, American Greatness
Attorney Sidney Powell promises that her team will begin making evidence of their claims available as early as this week. Her team has suits teed-up in all the swing states and hundreds of affidavits to back them up. Of course, an affidavit is just a sworn statement. It might or might not be true. To verify would, I believe, require further evidence. Does Powell have that evidence? She says she does. For now, though, we are all caught in a postmodern version of a Beckett play, Waiting for Sidney. Will she arrive?

After years of Democrats' lectures, it turns out that hate wins
Charles Hurt, Washington Times
Republican canvassers Monica Palmer and William Hartmann were pilloried and bullied as “racist” because Wayne County includes the city of Detroit, which is mostly Black. “The Trump stain, the stain of racism that you, William Hartmann and Monica Palmer, have covered yourself in, is going to follow you throughout history." Nothing says “love” like telling someone — without any evidence — that they are racist. Their grandchildren will hate them. And that they will die and burn in hell. Where do such animals come from?

Going Soft on Georgia's Rev. Wright Acolyte
Tim Graham, CNS News
Now that Georgia has only the Senate races left for the media to cover, our "objective" media firmly placed any criticism of Warnock in the "Republicans Pounce" category. Warnock's mentor was Rev. Dr. James H. Cone, the Marxist father of black liberation theology. And he publicly defended another Cone-head, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., who says "God damn America" in his sermons and who preached after 9/11 that "America's chickens are coming home to roost." But ABC, CBS, and NBC have shown no interest in these extreme sermons.

Obama can't credibly racialize his party's failures
Editors, Washington Examiner
Obama's personal triumph failed to transform the nation as he had promised. He left behind him a party, which was a dominant majority party in 2008, a withered husk from top to bottom, desiccated in every office, from Congress to state legislatures. Democrats are already loath enough to admit that their ideology or party would lose favor with voters. But their brains simply cannot process the idea that the voters, many of them ancestral Democrats of long pedigree, would find them so distasteful as to prefer Trump.

Can the Georgia Senatorial Runoff Possibly Be Trusted?
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Are the computers going to be functioning any better, the software corrected, so-called “back doors” slammed, by Jan. 5?  The current recount of the election does not include signature verification, which makes it, frankly, absurd. The Georgia GOP, including the governor, does not seem to be on the side of the president, but more in the self-preservation mode of a high tech version of the corrupt old Southern politics out of a Robert Penn Warren novel. Trust it? It’s impossible to answer in any way but the negative.

Irony Abounds as the Left Politicizes the Coronavirus
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
Weeks before the election Joe Biden had scoffed: “I trust vaccines. I trust scientists. But I don’t trust Donald Trump.” Kamala Harris demonized a potential Operation Warp Speed vaccine during a vice presidential debate: “If Donald Trump tells us to take it, I’m not taking it.” Irony abounds. Those who accused President Donald Trump of playing politics with the virus made him look like a relative amateur through their own machinations. Those who claimed they were guided by science proved unscientific in their partisanship.

Biden’s November 7th Declaration
R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator
I would say whole years can go by and I never hear a racist thought. Americans do not talk like that nor do they act like that. Put another way, there is no systemic racism in America. This Critical Race Theory is a lot of claptrap and only prolongs bigotry. If Joe Biden is serious about what we can now call his November 7th Declaration, we can now extend our elbows across the aisle in peace and harmony. We can now refer to each other as wrong-headed or simplistic, but we are not going to be abusive. Joe has decreed it.

Let’s Give Free Money to Gender Studies Majors
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Let’s destroy academia. It’s a commie conformity factory that generates idiots while providing subsidies to the worst people in the world – academics. Student loans are a giant scam designed to let universities charge more and more while delivering less and less. They are super spreaders of woke communism, and it’s time to flatten the curve. Let’s look on liberal stupidity as an opportunity, an opportunity to destroy it once and for all. After all, there’s nothing that makes people hate liberalism like experiencing it.

Barack Obama bashes America (again)
Joseph Curl, Washington Times
President Donald Trump, he claims, “promised an elixir for the racial anxiety” of “millions of Americans spooked by a black man in the White House.” Those Americans — whom Mr. Obama implies are racist — were prey to “the dark spirits that had long been lurking on the edges of the modern Republican party — xenophobia, anti-intellectualism, paranoid conspiracy theories, an antipathy toward black and brown folks.” Perhaps Mr. Obama — now worth some $40 million — will one day see himself as emblematic of America’s promise.

The Aerobic Adoration of Obama
Tim Graham, CNS News
After four years of reflection (and a reported $65 million his and hers book advance), the Almighty Barack Obama has come forward to bless the media with a 768-page memoir — and it's only volume one. This takes the Obama-loving reader through the victorious takedown of Osama bin Laden in May 2011. Only a handful of interviews were granted before this doorstop of a book is available in stores. But we can already see that, as Bernard Goldberg memorably described in his book title, this "slobbering love affair" never ends.

Hurry Up With That Kraken, Will You?
Scott McKay, The American Spectator
When Powell and Wood, who are lawyers with well-established reputations as stars in their profession and who are not kooks, are confidently stating not only that the election was plagued with massive fraud and abuse, but Trump will ultimately be declared the winner once it has all shaken out, that ought to be taken seriously. Even if what’s being said appears, before we’ve seen the evidence, to be a bit on the fanciful side. And despite how hard those foul political winds are blowing. Let’s see that Kraken for ourselves.

Democrats' plea for 'unity' rings hollow
Tammy Bruce, Washington Times
The issue is not condemning violence in general. Most people do. The issue confronting Democratic leadership, including Joe Biden/Kamala Harris, is condemning political violence by these specific groups applied against those who are perceived as political opponents. It’s telling they find that too high a mountain. Of all the things Americans are learning through the Democratic Party’s hypocrisy and coy remarks about political violence, is when the Democrats patronizingly speak of unity what they really mean is submission.

The Appearance of Impropriety Dogs This Election
Roger Kimball, The Epoch Times
Powell alleges she has evidence that the voting machines that featured in key battleground states, machines from the Canadian company Dominion Voting Systems, were programmed to alter votes in favor of Biden. The company denies it, and Wikipedia puts the controversy down to a “conspiracy theory.” According to Powell, however, contrary evidence is coming through like water through “a fire hose.” The clock is ticking. Certification of the electors is coming up in early December. Does Powell have the goods? We shall see.

Appoint a special counsel to look into Hunter Biden deals
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
Something worse than a news blackout looms if Biden becomes president. The complete truth about his family’s lucrative and suspect connections with foreign powers would never see the light of day because a Biden DOJ would almost certainly deep-six evidence of wrongdoing. There is no absolute way to prevent the FBI from burying the case. But there is one way to make that step more difficult to take and impossible to conceal. While he still has the job, AG Bill Barr should name a special counsel to take over the Biden probe.

Why the Media Trash Trump's Superrecovery
Stephen Moore, CNS News
The faster the economy heals, the more it is disparaged as "slowing down." America's newsrooms see some phantom job killer just around the next corner — except the real one, Joe Biden — and the reporters seem visibly disappointed when it doesn't show up. Democrats and the media know Joe Biden will perform much worse on the economy than Trump. So, they want to set that starting hurdle so low that no matter how dismally Biden performs, he will still be heralded as the guy who saved the economy, not the one who capsized it.

The Radicalism of Raphael Warnock
Editors, National Review
Raphael Warnock is trying to run away from his radical left-wing record in his campaign to persuade Georgia voters to elect him and hand Democrats unified control of Congress and the White House. In a November 9 interview, Warnock dodged questions about whether he would vote for legislation increasing the number of justices on the Supreme Court and vote for legislation adding two new states. That Warnock continues to dodge the question even after the issue of Court-packing may have cost Democrats Senate seats is telling.

What We Must Believe to Believe Biden Won
David Catron, The American Spectator
We must believe the voters hammered the Democrats in congressional, state, and local elections, yet decided to elect the “leader” of their party president. We must believe that he dramatically underperformed among minority voters, yet received 10 million more votes than Obama. We must believe that virtually all of the reliable election bellwethers were wrong. We must believe that all of the elections in the swing states were conducted honestly and the software used to tabulate the votes was secure. All of this beggars belief.

Beijing Sends Biden a Warning
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Biden repudiates an "America First" foreign policy that puts U.S. security, sovereignty, liberty and vital interests above the interests of any other nation. But what is it, then, that Biden puts first? Globalism. A New World Order. A Crusade for Global Democracy. Been there, done that. Sixty years ago when Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy faced off, the foreign policy debate was over whether the U.S. should fight Mao's China to defend the tiny offshore islands of Quemoy and Matsu. Kennedy thought not. Kennedy won.

Marching into Georgia, with the Senate in Sight
Victor Davis Hanson, National Review
Georgia might at least remind us (again) of the new progressive convergence of unverifiable early/mail-in voting, looming threats of street violence, third-party vote harvesting, court-ordered nullification of constitutionally and legislatively sacrosanct state election laws, massaged polling, 1984 Big Tech Trotskyization, billionaire gifting, celebrity vanity, and pathetic elite appeals to alter the voting electorate — all in service of the noble cause of ensuring a packed Supreme Court or ending the Electoral College.

Encountering Antifa in Front of the Marriott
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
One of the Antifa came closer, as if he were about to attack someone, daring us to respond. For a split second, he was staring straight at me. He appeared not like any sort of political activist I had seen but a complete psychopath, more like The Joker as portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix in the latest Batman movie, only this joker had long, bedraggled blonde hair and the deadest grey eyes you could imagine. This was pure evil, beyond psychoanalysis or any ideology I could think of. Then he moved past deeper into the crowd.

Biden could help fix politics by condemning the violent Left
Editors, Washington Examiner
Leftists are unlikely to get what they want, so mor violence is likely. Businesses didn’t board up their storefronts because they feared militia groups or “Proud Boys” or other right-wing rabble-rousers, let alone Trump supporters. They feared what the Left would do in the event of a loss. If we’re worried about violence, Biden needs to put the finger where it hurts and start calling out a political Left that seems increasingly incapable of taking offense without beating someone up, smashing a window, or setting a fire.

Vichy Amanpour sees Nazis, but has no spine
Charles Hurt, Washington Times
If President Trump is Hitler and his 73 million supporters are Nazis, then she is basically a Nazi-sympathizer. She folded like a pleated skirt. Vichy Amanpour, she is. And same to all the weaklings here in America who share her vicious disdain for the 73 million Americans who voted for Mr. Trump. The evil of racism is that it is founded on ignorance, prejudice and fear — all weaponized to destroy a class of people while lifting the racist up in her own sick mind. Tell us, Vichy Amanpour, who is the true racist here?

The Trump CT Scanner
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
In their obsession with President Donald Trump, in their lust to return to power or regain influence or reestablish national attention, to remind us of their connections and arguments from authority, to prove that the successful upstart Trump’s record was a failure, and that own their dubious expertise and unappreciated commentary were seminal and invaluable, elites revealed to the nation what they were—and perhaps had always been. And the resulting penetrating imagery showed their own growing malignancy inside and out.

Can We All Agree: Donald Trump Is No Dictator?
Doug Bandow, The American Spectator
Dictators don’t lose. I predict Biden will take the oath of office for the presidency on January 20th. And none of the biblical plagues and the parade of other horribles that we were warned would happen if Trump was elected will have happened. So how about it? If I am right and Biden ends up occupying the Oval Office, will the lefties finally admit that Donald Trump is not and will not become a dictator? Even after Biden is in, I suspect the “Donald Trump as dictator” meme will reemerge. The only question is, how soon?

Democrats calling for unity but vow for vengeance
Robert Knight, Washington Times
Although Mr. Biden has gone back on his word not to claim victory until the election is certified, and has created an “Office of the President-Elect,” complete with an official looking seal, he has at least issued the standard call to unite the country. But, more than 70 million Americans who voted for President Trump might be forgiven for asking, “Really?” In 2016, Democrats not only refused to accept Hillary Clinton’s loss but have engaged in a four-year coup attempt to remove Mr. Trump and smear his supporters as racists.

For President Trump, a larger fight endures after 2020 election
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
Trump brought a much-needed course correction to Washington and remade the Republican Party. His economic populism is turning the GOP into a multiracial, multiethnic party of working-class strivers and America Firsters while forcing Dems to choose between the radical far left and the remnants of traditional liberals. Whatever the president decides about his personal future, Trumpism lives. That alone is conclusive proof that Trump was a hugely consequential president whose policies made life better for millions of Americans.

Pfizer, Biden, and the Birth of ‘Socialism With American Characteristics’
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
It’s oligarchic capitalism similar to Russia. Ours will be a country governed by an alliance of corporate giants from tech to Big Pharma (see Pfizer) in league with self-described liberal or progressive politicians who profit directly and/or indirectly from them. The masses would remain, well, the masses. In other words. “Socialism with American Characteristics” would be post-modern serfdom. How do we stop it? For now, elect GOP senators in Georgia to put a temporary brake on things. Then we have a lot of thinking to do.

Biden Would Be the Weakest President Ever
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
So, if Biden does win he comes in barely having won, with a big, fat asterisk after it because of the manifest irregularities and fraud, with a crippled Botox Nan and the Doom Tortoise in the Senate just aching to make his life a living hell. He’s got to deal with the Chinese coronavirus and he plans to listen to the same dummies who screwed it up in the first place. Remember, the best and the brightest of the libs are singularly unaccomplished jerks whose worth is approximately 1/1000th of their inflated self-worth.

About Atlanta’s Election Day Pipe Dream
David Catron, The American Spectator
Honest people don't riot. President Trump believes he and his supporters have been wronged and, unlike the autocrat his critics imagine him to be, he is seeking legal redress in the courts. This is the right thing to do. Every vote that was potentially created while those Fulton County election officials used the “broken water pipe” to buy time constitutes the very real theft of someone’s right to vote. It is, to use a favorite Democrat trope, voter suppression. Election fraud is all too real, and this why it matters.

Pro-Biden Bug Also Suspected in Georgia's Vote-Counting Software
Paul Sperry, RealClearInvestigationsVoter GA co-founder Garland Favorito of Atlanta said the Fulton County shift was so dramatic it seemed as if someone had “dumped" a huge batch of mail-in ballots for Biden into the system overnight. “One candidate could not go up by 20,000 and the other do nothing — in Fulton County or any county in Georgia,” he asserted. “That’s just not going to happen." Added Favorito: “I think they’re going to find the root cause of the irregularity was something electronic, and I think it’s going to change the results substantially.”

Harvesting the 2020 Election
Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal
Republicans fought the worst of Democrats' mail-in changes but were up against the virus excuse. The question is whether they now understand the stakes. This election was a mere glimpse of the system Mrs. Pelosi wants nationwide, and she has already suggested “election reform” might again be her first priority in 2021. The GOP’s job is to harness voters’ frustration about the murky mess that was this year’s vote into a movement that demands transparency and renewed integrity of the ballot. Or risk a lot of 2020 repeats.

Who Owns the Future? Dems or GOP?
Patrick J. Buchanan, Creators
Who owns the future? If Democrats can kill the filibuster and pack the Supreme Court, if they can add four new senators from Puerto Rico and D.C., and if they can pack the electorate by turning millions of migrants, legal and illegal, into U.S. citizens and regular voters, then you don't need to be a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing. Yet, as seen in California, conservatism is not dead. The left's appeal to diversity, and affirmative action to achieve it, was rejected by a majority of Golden State voters.

Chaos on the border
Charles Hurt, Washington Times
In his first term, President Trump built roughly 400 miles of his wall. He would have built much more if not for Democrats in Congress and federal court judges who conspired at every turn to thwart his effort to simply enforce our borders. Interestingly, Mr. Trump’s 400-mile wall is a little more than half of what Congress approved of building back in 2006. Among those in the United States Senate who voted to build a 700-mile barrier along the border was one Sen. Joseph R. Biden of Delaware. Long gone is that Joe Biden.

Raphael Warnock's radicalism is catching up with him
Editors, Washington Examiner
Georgians are getting a clearer picture of Warnock, and it’s not the one he’s projected. Warnock actively embraced the “God damn America” line of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, going on television to defend Wright in 2008 at the very moment when then-Sen. Barack Obama was wisely disowning him. There are further concerns about Warnock, who has been accused of dissuading witnesses from immediately cooperating with police in a child abuse case 18 years ago, when similar problems within the Catholic Church were first coming to light.

The Left’s Civility Claptrap
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
The de-Christianization of the country, which Biden has championed, also makes any new era of civility impossible. Biden has no kinder, gentler view of America; his vision is rooted in the nihilism of Planned Parenthood and Black Lives Matter. He ran with a San Francisco radical whose idea of charity is to spring rioters chanting for the death of cops from jail. Biden seeks not unity but submission, not civility but unchallenged power. The “grim era of demonization” will not close but enter a new and even uglier chapter.

The Realignment Is Real
Jonathon Van Maren, The American Conservative
The 2016 election upended conventional wisdoms and inaugurated political chaos, with Donald Trump at the center of the maelstrom. Democrats have been desperately hoping—even assuming—that Trump was a one-off detour on the long march towards Progress (a goal that is forever just beyond the horizon.) Instead, the 2020 election results prove that the conservatives who gathered last year are not delusional—they’re on to something. Demography is not destiny. A new fusion of economic populism and social conservatism just might be.

Libertarian Ideas Are Great, Voting Libertarian Self-Defeating
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
The more libertarian ideas are debated within the GOP, the more that party’s candidates will have to respond to them and, potentially, espouse them. They will have real world implications. When you waste them on something as inconsequential as a fringe and almost entirely ignored Libertarian Party, particularly in something so hotly contested as a presidential election, you vitiate them and are ultimately self-defeating, not to mention, as we have seen, sabotaging the only viable candidate who best carries your ideas.

Go On the Offensive In Georgia
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
The Senate is the Big Enchilada after the presidency. There’s no reason to half-step. We need an aggressive, pre-election legal offensive to ensure that this nonsense does not happen again. So, what can you do? If you’re a lawyer, you go down there and do lawyer stuff. You might see me there. If you are a regular citizen, you can volunteer to help turn out voters before and then to stand in the counting rooms at 3 a.m. watching. If you are out of state, you can call voters, or you can give money. You need to do something.

Will Trump Ride Off Into the Sunset?
Victor Davis Hanson, PJ Media
In 2016 the peasants sought outside deliverance and so it came — orange skin, dyed hair, Queens accent and all. The more Trump beat back Mueller’s dream team, impeachment efforts, the more his beneficiaries worried about his tweets, his bluster and his self-absorption, and the more the public could afford to listen to charges of Trump excess. Often, Hollywood epics and even some Sophoclean tragedies have a sequel. And perhaps Donald Trump will too, even if he is forced to ride off into the 2021 sunset — at least for now.

Democratic blacklists and other odious hypocrisies
Editors, Washington Examiner
It was already evident last week that Democrats’ expected gains had failed to materialize in the Senate. But, stunningly, not a single Republican House incumbent who voted against Trump’s impeachment was defeated in the election. Democrats appear on pace to lose a dozen House seats on net, with their only three pickups coming due to court-ordered redistricting in North Carolina and a retirement in Georgia. Republicans also gained ground in state legislatures. Angry voters found a way to express it while rewarding Republicans.

Don't Give an Inch
Rachel Bovard, The American Mind
The militant Left that has lied to America countless times cannot be trusted suddenly to tell the truth about what’s happening. Open the count, line up observers, ensure every vote cast is a legal one. If there are discrepancies, they must be explained rather than dismissed. Our self-government requires consensus. That consensus is fragile. Without trust at its foundation, it will shatter. The 71 million people who cast a vote for President Donald Trump deserve this transparency as much as every other American voter.

I Won Again!
R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator
Whom have we elected as president? Democrat Joe Biden a proven plagiarist, a law school cheat, and a candidate who ran on his spotless character in a race to the White House in which a business partner to his son charged the son and the father with grave acts of corruption. What can we say of this electoral farce? Well, the best that I can say is that in 2020 I called the election right once again. There was no Democratic wave, and a week after the election it appears the most corrupt candidate in memory is ahead.

Was Pfizer’s Vaccine News Slow-Walked Until After the Election?
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
It’s hard to believe that Pfizer wasn’t in talks with the Joe Biden 2020 campaign. And it’s worth noting that Big Pharma donors favored Biden over Trump during the 2020 election cycle. Joe Biden and the media have exploited coronavirus relentlessly for political purposes. Collaborating with Big Pharma to slow-walk good news about a vaccine until after Election Day is another example of their shamelessness. Half of America doesn’t trust this potential president, his people, or the news media—and this is exactly why.

Democrats want it all now
Byron York, Washington Examiner
Some Democrats not only want President Trump to leave office, they want him to do so, and be replaced by Democrat Joe Biden, immediately. Other than the basic civics of presidential terms and succession, it seems to be that the people who have been driven 'round the bend by the Trump presidency are still 'round the bend, even as the process to formalize a successor is under way. Then the question is: Will they suddenly become rational actors once January 20, 2021 arrives? Or have they permanently lost their senses?

Unhinged Democrats take aim at Republican voters
Tammy Bruce, Washington Times
As Joe Biden's supporters imagine they have a mandate to continue their obscene cancel-culture and Stalinistic purges, they should take notice of what else happened during this election — Democrats were rejected at every level of government. The down-ballot mini-Red Wave was a statement rejecting socialism and the extremism controlling the Democratic party. If the Democrats continue to indulge their soul-rotting hatred of half the country, the 2022 midterms will remind them again, in a much more significant way.

CNN'S Preposterous Call for Unity
Tim Graham, CNS News
Media outlets like CNN should expect hostility toward the call for unity, because hyperbolic abuse has come out of the network for years. There will be no unity, because there is not one ounce of regret from CNN. You cannot spend four years with people such as Don Lemon denouncing Trump fans as "people who will lie, steal and cheat, lie to their own mother, lie to themselves" and expect unity. CNN's own continued abuse in between the "unity" commercials should underline why their Xeroxed Biden message is preposterous.

Why Trump Shouldn’t Concede
David Catron, The American Spectator
The Constitution provides no authority whereby a court may override the manner in which a state legislature chooses its electors. The Elections and Electors Clause is the primary cause of action in the lawsuit just filed by the Trump campaign against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Trump will win this lawsuit and most of the others his campaign has filed because the states involved circumvented the Constitution. Trump would be crazy to concede the election. If only legal votes are counted, he will be reelected.

In the Fight
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
Reject the gaslighting. This election was not normal. It was not regular. It was not worthy of your blind deference. Is it some sort of coincidence that all the problems arose in big urban centers in swing states run exclusively by Democrats? That they flooded the electorate with uncontrolled ballots? That they just stopped counting on election night, often with President Trump ahead? That they just kept counting until Biden was allegedly ahead? Win or lose we have to fight it or this planned chaos will become the norm.

Bret Baier Deletes Tweet That Exposed Exploding Backlash Against Fox News
John Nolte, Breitbart
More proof that Fox News is in real trouble. The backlash is so fierce, so grassroots, so overwhelming, Baier is forced to wishcast it all away with the cowardly deletion of a tweet — as though that somehow means it didn’t happen. Fox’s ratings will likely remain high until the presidential election is resolved, but I am truly interested to see what happens after… Fox News has lost its base of support, and when you lose your base of support, you are in very serious trouble. Ask the NFL, the NBA, ESPN, Megyn Kelly. 

Will Georgia Halt the Radicals' Revolution?
Patrick J. Buchanan, Creators
The stakes in Georgia senate races are second only to the presidency. Minutes after Biden declared victory last week, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, exulted, "Now we take Georgia, and then we change the world." Schumer was referring to the two Senate races that will be decided Jan. 5, both runoffs where none of the four candidates got the Georgia-required 50.0% of the vote on Nov. 3. all that is needed to block this rising radical revolution is for the GOP to win one of the two Senate seats at issue Jan. 5.

An Election Day Bridge Too Far
Victor Davis Hanson, National Review
After being lectured by Clintonites, by the media, and by big tech for years that voting was likely to be suspect, the Left did all it could by lawsuits and radical changes to voting statues to ensure that the count would be, well, suspect by its own prior standards. The realization that a transparent Election Day vote is a distant memory is what enrages Barack Obama’s clingers, Joe Biden’s dregs, chumps and ugly folk, and Hillary Clinton’s deplorables and irredeemables—-the final injury after a host of insults.

Biden and Dems' version of 'healing and unity' means bowing to their policies
Cal Thomas, Washington Times
The mystery is why so many Americans vote for Republicans in one election and Democrats the next. Too many it seems vote mainly on personality and superficialities, not substantive policies. It was the media’s job to dig under the superficial and reveal the true Joe Biden (and Kamala Harris, who could likely become president sooner than later). They failed, becoming an extension of the Democratic Party and anti-Trumpers. If Mr. Biden’s policies fail, don’t expect Democrats to admit it; they will blame Republicans.

The NeverTrump Never Again
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
The NeverTrump Trumpers feel they are under no compulsion to defend the agenda’s author. Perhaps bad men can do a few good things, but they cannot do a lot of good things. And Trump did a lot more good for the country than had prior supposedly good presidents. In the end, most Trumpers appreciated that Trump took risks to enact a populist agenda that could save conservatism from its theorists and unite the formerly suspicious of different backgrounds and races, in a common belief in an America worth conserving.

Crucial Provisional Ballots: Why Pennsylvania (and This Election) Isn’t Over
Paul Kengor, The American Spectator
Which other crucial battleground states have provisional ballots yet to be counted? Do they exist in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, or in Michigan and Wisconsin? Is this being considered? Is the Trump campaign aware of it? These provisional ballots state by state will favor Trump because they are mainly Election Day ballots, and Trump won most of these states’ votes on Election Day. In a presidential race this razor-thin, these provisional ballots could be a game-changer, and not just in Pennsylvania.

Media ‘Calling’ Elections in a Democracy Is Post-Modern Fascism
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Media calling elections is akin to their outrageous polls we have witnessed that also operated as psy-ops designed to depress the vote and financial contributions to the GOP candidate. That the supposedly more conservative Fox News participates was illustrated not only by their extremely inaccurate polling in 2016 and 2020 but by their “calling” Arizona, which now looks virtually a toss up, for Biden very early election evening while declining to call Florida for Trump, which was close to a romp for the president.

Don’t Believe the Hype: GOP Favored in Georgia Runoffs
John Fund, National Review
Georgia is more competitive than it has been due to demographic changes and a drop-off in suburban women supporting Republicans. But it is easy to exaggerate the change. A tough two months of runoff campaigning lie ahead. But the likely outcome in Georgia is that the incoming Biden administration will take office with no mandate and seeing its candidates repudiated in Georgia just before the president takes office on January 20. Even Chuck Schumer would recognize that’s not a platform from which to “change America.”

Unity with Trump supporters? OK, prove you mean it, Joe!
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
Biden should not scoff at the lawsuits and challenges in the most contested states. Giving legitimacy to those disputes would be unusual, but we live in unusual and dangerous times. If Biden were to shut his eyes and pretend that all Americans fully accept the outcome as untainted, he would be making a colossal mistake that could haunt him should he be formally declared the winner. If he trusts the results are honest and accurate, he must do what he urged others to do — be patient and calm “until every vote is counted.”

Trump accuses Democrats of cheating? What goes around comes around.
Byron York, Washington Examiner
the cheating allegation had gone on and on — from mid-2016 until mid-2019. It was started and perpetuated by Democrats who sought to accuse Trump of cheating in the 2016 election. Some cling to it even today. In any event, it deeply, and unfairly, scarred the Trump presidency. Now, some Democrats say it is time to "heal." And President-elect Joe Biden asks that the accused and those who targeted them "give each other a chance" in the new Democratic administration. Surely no one will be surprised if that doesn't happen.

The Voters Versus the Vote Counters
David Catron, The American Spectator
Trump can’t win without Pennsylvania, so the court will be forced to decide another case like Bush v. Gore. The republic won’t survive a political environment in which state courts arrogate prerogatives constitutionally reserved to the legislatures, election officials ignore the law governing mail-in ballots, and large numbers of votes mysteriously appear in one candidate’s totals in the dark of the night. It will eventually come down to the voters versus the vote counters. Our liberty depends on the victory of the former.

Trumpism Lives On!
Patrick J. Buchanan, American Conservative
Bottom line: Joe Biden is not going to be the "transformational" president of his imagining. Nor is he going to be the "most progressive president since Roosevelt" as some Democrats have been promising. And the reasons are obvious. FDR had massive Dem majorities in both Houses of Congress throughout the 1930s. In 1936, he carried 46 of 48 states. Biden has no such mandate and no such power base, and he lacks the natural gifts of FDR. Sorry, but there is no new "Era of Good Feelings" in store for America. To the contrary.

Sleepy Campaign Strategy Mystery Solved
Roger Kimball, American Greatness
Biden didn’t really campaign because he—or at least his handlers—knew the fix was in. They knew that compliant polls would cook the numbers to show that Biden was 10, 15, or even 17 points ahead nationally and in all the battleground states. The psychological, which means the political effect of that, was to insinuate an element of unreality into the whole campaign and to present the public, and the pundits who were there to spoonfeed them, with a false narrative about the performance and prospects of the two candidates.

The Disastrous 2020 Election Will Never Be Resolved
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
No one will ever really know what happened. Once they get through with the referrals that will doubtless include the Banana Republic-style actions of election officials and workers in Philadelphia, Detroit and elsewhere who, despite court orders, prevented Republican poll watchers from doing their jobs, moving vote scanners to avoid supervision as if they were those proverbial goal posts, there should, if we lived in a just world, be enough to keep the dockets full of cases to be prosecuted until election 2024 and beyond.

2020’s Biggest Election Losers
Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal
This election’s clearest losers were Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the public faces of the unhinged left. Will Democrats learn? Assuming the GOP keeps the Senate, we will continue with divided government. Americans sent a message on Tuesday that they are done with the hoopla and want to see Washington address the real problems of the day, of which there are plenty. America remains a center-right country, and there is great political upside for politicians who govern in a center-right fashion. And real losses for those who don’t.

The Absolute Failure of Pollsters
Tim Graham, CNS News
Everyone — including conservatives who don't trust the media — makes political and journalistic decisions based on these badly concocted polls. The media pollsters assume the American electorate is always more liberal than it actually is. They have spent five years churning out surveys suggesting Donald Trump was unelectable. Being wrong in 2016 never slowed them down. Does anyone expect the major-media polling "experts" to assemble for an autopsy to evaluate how wrong they are, and how untrustworthy they have become?

The Disinformationists
Victor Davis Hanson, National Review
There are lots of reasons to worry that something is terribly wrong. If Biden wins, we should assume that in late January 2021 these same forces will regroup to frame a new post-election narrative. Expect our Big Brothers to say the COVID-19 pandemic is mutating into little more than a bad flu. The “Biden vaccine” and miraculous “Biden recovery” will have ended the need for Trump-era lockdowns. And the rioting, looting and arson? They will all have miraculously disappeared because disuniter and divider Trump is now gone.

A House Divided Along New Lines
Melissa Mackenzie, The American Spectator
Divided and frustrated, citizens are realigning not along race or gender lines, but along philosophical ones. The West has gone through a period of self-flagellation and looks to America to set the tone. The Left sees no redemption for America or the West’s sins except through a diminishment, a redistribution, a shame. Trump and his followers see no redemption for the world without God and America, warts and all. These are starkly different visions for America, and America is having a difficult time deciding which way to go.

Election night showed why Trump voters don’t trust the media
Michael Goodwin, New York Post
The media demonized the president for five years and encouraged his impeachment. Their coverage of his supporters ranges from shock to contempt, as if their backing of the president makes them idiots unfit for America. Which, of course, is exactly why Trump was elected in the first place and got more than 68 million votes Tuesday, or five million more than in 2016. Whatever the final score, it’s already a given that the 2020 campaign has deepened the chasms tearing our country apart. In that sense, the future is spoken for.

Voters just denied the Left a mandate
Editors, Washington Examiner
The most likely outcome is that Biden will win with razor-thin margins in a few states; that Democrats will lose seats in the House; and that Republicans will maintain control of the Senate. In the worst case for Democrats, Trump could ride a narrow path to victory. At best for Democrats, they will have a 50-50 Senate and centrists will be the tie-breaking votes. This is not the position from which to nuke the filibuster, pack the courts, ban fracking, dramatically expand Obamacare, implement the Green New Deal, and so on.

Hope in the 'Great Blue Wave' of 2020
Charles Hurt, Washington Times
Defying media predictions, the “Blue Puddle” makes clear that voters are not desperate to see Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia added as states so that Democrats would get four more senators. What still remains unclear is whether anybody in the media will learn any lessons out of this election that they failed to learn in 2016. As for the tens of millions of dollars poured into South Carolina and Kentucky? Thank you for wasting all your money in a couple of great American states. It will be a Merry Christmas indeed.

The Other Winners and Losers
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
It’s not only the politicians who won or lost – there are plenty of other winners and losers to go around. Let’s praise and mock them respectively. LOSER: The Pollsters. WINNER: The Republican Party’s Populist Wing. LOSER: Fox News. WINNER: Alternative Conservative Media. LOSER: Never Trumpers. They imagined that after the GOP collapsed in ruins because of their mean tweets and unseen ads, we would come to them to help rebuild the party as…what? A second, even less masculine Democrat Party? They are nothing. Ahoy, losers.

Trump's track to victory — plus Democratic dreams die on Capitol Hill
Byron York, Washington Examiner
There will be no packing the Supreme Court. No making Washington DC or Puerto Rico a state. No getting rid of the Senate filibuster. But still there is the presidential race. Donald Trump might lose. Or it might take an unexpected course. For example, if he wins Georgia and North Carolina, and then wins Pennsylvania, there is a possibility that Nevada might put him over the top. It's impossible to say now. But this has not turned out to be the glorious Democratic triumph that some Democrats and their allies in the media wanted.

The Endless Election of 2020, So Far
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Whatever happened, the closeness of the election already led to one conclusion. Donald Trump had changed the GOP in an extraordinary way that was, in the short run at least, irreversible. The Democrats and the Republicans had switched roles. The Republicans had become the party of the working class. The Democrats were now the party of elites and quasi socialists who rely on identity politics for victory. Democrats may have problems ahead because Hispanics in particular and blacks were starting to leave the fold after decades.

What We Have Learned So Far
George Neumayr, The American Spectator
If Biden manages to back into the presidency, it will be due in no small part to America’s monstrously manipulative media and Big Tech tyranny, which has treated every moment of Trump’s presidency as a national emergency. Even in the early hours of Wednesday, this behemoth was still at it, censoring tweets. Biden, if he wins, will have been carried into the White House not by the people but by a press that operated as a shameless opposition party to the president. It wasn’t a fair fight, and yet Trump could still win it.

Will the Plywood Party win?
Roger Kimball, The Spectator
Just as we have been warned to cover our faces against the insidious threat of the virus, so we have been warned to cover the faces of our stores against the insidious threat of unhappy voters. I don’t think most people have yet taken on board how odd this election is. The Dems like the word ‘democracy’. But what they seem to mean by it is ‘We get to run things.’ It follows that a democratic election is one that they win. An ‘assault on democracy’ is what they call it when the other guy wins. Nice work if you can get it.

Biden's War Against the South
Stephen Moore, CNS News
The cost to Southern states is more than $1.5 trillion over 10 years. It's an enormous tax on red-state America. The purpose is to handicap states such as Texas and Florida so they grow slower and blue states catch up. Meanwhile, about 3 million people have left New York, California, and Illinois over the past decade. Residents of Southern states should rise up in protest against policies that will make the South look like New Jersey and Rhode Island. This makes as much sense as trying to make Hong Kong look like bankrupt Venezuela.

Do leftist Democrats really think life would be more pleasant without cops around?
R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The Washington Times
The Democratic candidates feel the police are the cause of urban unrest. Already the City Council of Philadelphia has denied them the use of tear gas. Last week, 58 police officers in that city were injured and one had her leg broken when a peaceful protestor ran over her in his pickup truck. During last week’s riot 442 incidents of looting were reported and rioters used explosives to break into 22 automated-teller machines. I wonder if Kamala and the Biden 13 sent any donations to the Philadelphia cop with the broken leg.

Can a Disintegrating America Come Together?
Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News
Can this nation come together again? And if it cannot — a real possibility — what form will America take as it disintegrates? Today, we are divided over ideology, morality, culture, race and history. We are divided over whether America is the great nation we were raised to revere and love or a nation born in great sins and crimes — such as the near annihilation of indigenous peoples and their cultures and the enslavement of Black peoples from Africa. How many yet see America as "a city upon a hill, a light unto the nations"?

Sorry, America. Reconciliation Is a Long Way Off After the Election
Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times
Normally optimistic, I'm pessimistic now. It will be a long time before there will be “bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover” for the U.S.—or for the UK for that matter. Neither side is prepared to accept defeat and reconcile. to return to the halcyon days of that democratic republic of people caring about each other described eloquently so long ago by Alexis de Tocqueville? Are there enough people who even care? For those who do, three words of advice: Reform our schools. That’s the most important thing and where you start.

The Democrats’ Grand Delusion
Julie Kelly, American Greatness
Democrats, in reality, are the party of grand delusion. No tale is too wild, no anonymous accusation is too far-fetched to warrant a modicum of healthy skepticism. QAnon has nothing on these political automatons; programmed daily with party-approved talking points, rank-and-file Democrats dutifully recite the conspiracy du jour with just the right amount of humanlike fear and fury. Joe Biden is wrong, as usual. Democrats do not choose truth over lies or fact over fiction. To the contrary, Democrats are the masters of delusion.

Massive voter turnout shows that American democracy is strong
Editors, Washington Examiner
2020's enormous turnout indicates a vibrant democracy, not the hollowed-out shell that you would expect if you've been listening to Chicken Little. This should not be a surprise, given the importance of the election. But it stands in sharp contrast to the past four years of breathless coverage warning that Trump’s election was a threat to the future of American democracy. It's not much of a surprise, unless, like much of the media and establishment class, you've been spending the last four years in a constant unnecessary panic.

2020 Election and the Secret Ballot
David Catron, The American Spectator
Americans take for granted that, when we step into the voting booth to vote, the choices we make will remain secret unless we voluntarily reveal them. By definition mail-in ballots are filled out far beyond the supervision of election officials. Moreover, studies confirm that at least a third are done in the presence of other individuals unknown. Consequently, at the very least, social coercion rears its ugly head yet again. The only way to protect the secret ballot is in-person voting at properly supervised polling places.

Twitter is losing users, just as censorship fatigue hits hard
Cheryl K. Chumley, Washington Times
Either Twitter has been busily booting even more conservatives that make the news, or users are abandoning the platform at a high rate. Smart money is on option two. Minus the hard left, Americans by and large cherish their freedom of speech. And they don’t take kindly to rich, elitist tech giants going to Congress and lying their butts off, pretending as if they don’t censor. The “who, me?” line gets old, but quick. If Twitter’s losing its users, that means one thing and one thing for sure: Free speech is seeing a resurgence.

Donald Trump, Counterrevolutionary
Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness
What tools did Donald Trump have to wage these many counterrevolutions? The media? America’s Fortune 400? Academia? In fact, none of them. All had joined or enabled the revolution. Against all that money and clout, the counterrevolutionary Trump had only one asset, the proverbial people. He had solely the under-polled and the written-off. They came out to his rallies in the tens of thousands, deluded the pollsters, and told the media less than nothing, but voted and will vote in waves to save America from what it was becoming.

If We Reach Election Overtime and Confusion on Tuesday, Here’s Why
John Fund, National Review
There’s a real chance the race could still be close in the Electoral College. That could mean that various scenarios are possible in which a winner isn’t clearly known for a while. We used to know by the morning after Election Day what the basic contours of any results were. Now Election Day appears to be simply a starting-off point of controversy for any race close enough to be litigated and recounted. Sadly, we have managed to politicize just about everything in our society — from how to fight a pandemic to how to count ballots.

Forget the Polls — Trump Is Still Winning
Robert Stacy McCain, The American Spectator
A narrow Trump win is entirely feasible, even if pollsters tell us it’s a long shot. Conservatives should be cheerful, knowing that liberals are living through a nightmare of anxiety over their fears that somehow Trump will beat the odds to win again. Back-to-back miracle victories may seem too much to ask for, but plenty of prayers are being offered for divine intervention, and who knows? We’ll soon see. In the meantime, just tune out the bad news and ignore the polls. As I keep telling friends: Keep calm and vote Donald Trump.

Yes, there is a hidden Trump vote
Byron York, Washington Examiner
There have been four years of anti-Trump media coverage. The anger that some voters feel when the name Trump is mentioned has only grown. It is not a surprise to hear so many Pennsylvanians say they know someone who plans to vote for Trump but doesn't want to talk about it. It is not a surprise to hear that some centrist Democratic officials, dismayed at their party's turn left, plan to vote for Trump, too. In this nation of the secret ballot, there are plenty of reasons some people don't announce their vote, perhaps more than ever in 2020.

A Momentous Choice Faces Us Today as in 1776
Roger Kimball, American Greatness
In 1776, the choices made by George Washington and other American patriots put the colonists on the road to victory. It was a long and difficult road, but the rewards—beginning with weighty perquisites of self-government—were rich. America faces a kindred choice on Tuesday on Election Day. You may or may not approve of Donald Trump’s style. But the substance of his leadership has yielded the most astonishingly successful first term in decades, maybe ever. What happens in this election will make an outsized difference in the world.

It’s Too Late for a Late Hit
Kurt Schlichter, Townhall
This election result is baked in. Everyone knows Donald Trump, and they either love him or hate him. Everyone knows Biden, and they either tolerate him because they hate Trump, or prefer Trump because either they are conserva-woke or because the thought of voting for that desiccated old crustacean is too much to bear. The late hit won’t amount to much because America has decided. It’s all about putting the ballots in the box now (and watching them being counted). So, get out there and vote, and get other patriots out there too.            

America itself is on the ballot
Charles Hurt, Washington Times
Mr. Trump is a constant presence on the campaign trail, blazingly open and always eager to share his every opinion. Sometimes to his detriment. Mr. Biden, meanwhile, is literally hiding from voters, hoping to burn out the clock until Election Day. It appears that Mr. Biden is so mentally enfeebled that his campaign handlers hope Mr. Trump’s name alone — and the voter exhaustion that comes with it — will be enough to get Mr. Biden elected. But it is not just Mr. Trump on the ballot. It is the Constitution and America as we know it.
