Massive rally / no one showing up? It’s all in the camera angle.

Worst case the press will fill in for each other, as in the past. Fake news for fake issues is the path to commieland.

Injunction granted... Broward County can’t open the ballots in secret, must follow law. I wonder how many votes the snuck in before the court order.

Pam Bondi is gone. The Secretary of State appointed by Scott is a Dem.

I am 50/50 if Nelson and Gillum's challenges get through.

Second time RBG has fallen and broke ribs. Plus she has a stent and some other issues.

This level of arrogant embarrassment of one's spouse is worthy of divorce.

I was thinking the same thing when I read about it. What kind of a guy would do something like that?

My wife irks me about a lot of things but in one area she's gone the extra mile consistently: supporting me at the workplace. That includes putting up with ungodly work schedules including extensive travel and buying gifts for people I supervised. Kellyanne's husband really deserves to have his teeth kicked for these embarrassing high profile stunts.

Thank you for that link.
Thank God they are not asleep at the switch down in the Florida statehouse.
What about missing the deadline?
Will that be challenged?
Unfortunately for us Virginia and Nevada are now officially blue states.

Andy McCarthy cites the Vacancy Reform Act of 1998 demonstrating the legality of the temporary 210 day appointment of Mr. Whitaker to AG.

"Matthew Whitaker joined the Trump Justice Department as Sessions’s chief of staff in October 2017. The date is relevant. The president has named him as acting attorney general under the Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 (the relevant provisions are codified at Sections 3345 and 3346 of Title 5, U.S. Code). There has been some commentary suggesting that because Whitaker was in a job (chief of staff) that did not require Senate confirmation, he could not become the “acting officer” in a position (AG) that calls for Senate confirmation. Not so. The Vacancies Act enables the president to name an acting officer, who may serve as such for 210 days, as long as the person named has been working at the agency or department for at least 90 days in a fairly high-ranking position. Whitaker qualifies."

Suck it Deep State. Whitaker is a hungry dawg. Let him eat, Mr. President. Let him eat.

More detail on Whitaker's prospects to become full-time AG:

from Andy McC:
"
Matthew Whitaker is well credentialed and appears to be an excellent choice to assume the duties of attorney general, at least temporarily (and perhaps permanently, though under the Vacancy Act, he could not be nominated to be AG while serving as acting AG)."

Arizona is proving the once and for all the migration of California to Arizona but for all the wrong reasons. Same in Nevada.

Both states have the largest migrant CA and NV populations be cause of taxes, and other stupid CA shit. Yet when they get there they act like they are still back in CA.

Really, we are living in another dimension no one warned us about.

Amazing what can be cobbled together in less than a day. Permits must have been expedited.

Nevada has no income tax and below average property taxes. The state has a beefy sales tax. Nowhere near Califiducication levels. Just sayin.

KK,

Armistice Day in the UK is our Memorial Day. There is no Veterans Day in the UK.

So, even though we give out poppies for Veterans Day, it is an anomaly, that even the VFW and American Legion decided long ago to not fix. Too confusing.

Flodigarry, permits are optional. How many live evening news TV cameras showed up?

I see that TM's banning weapon has malfunctioned again.

Who keeps thanking him for covering the troll with a blanket?

Just a terrible use of time to even have to use killfile.

Extraneus

It isn't any easier for him, Jack. The Typepad banning system probably isn't nearly as convenient as killfile.

I appreciate what he's been doing lately and he already said we should try registration. I assume that means we'll be doing that when it starts working again. Meanwhile, he's whacking a f'n useless excuse for a mole, just like we are.

I think Max Boot is the most phony man in Conseritive circles. How that complete fake can be considered anything than a progressive asshat is beyond me. When did appear he was a conservative? He is not or never has been. Ban guns? That is Rachel Maddow, and Linda Sasour territory.

Pam Bondi is gone. The Secretary of State appointed by Scott is a Dem.

Local Alaskan Headline: Sitka’s mysterious missing ballots


But only 1,276 votes were counted for Kreiss-Tomkins, and 974 votes counted for challenger Richard Wein.

What happened to about 4,000 votes that have just gone missing?

According to reports from local residents, two voting machines in Sitka (Precinct 1 and 2), as well as one each in Craig, Klawock, Prince of Wales Island, and Kake, are said to have malfunctioned.

No other voting machines around the state failed — only six, and all in District 35. What are the odds?

Governor Scott and also Senator Elect Scott is on with Hannity, and when Hannity isn't interrupting him Governor Scott is relating some awful stuff about Florida:

Hannity: On Election Day you were up 57,000 votes. What is the number now?

Gov Scott: Now it's down to 15,000 Votes. So its clear we've got some Left-Wing Activists, we've got some Democrat DC Lawyers, who are down here for 1 purpose---To Steal This Election...

Hannity: Florida Law says that all absentee/early voting numbers must be reported within 30 minutes of the Polls closing, correct?

Scott: Absolutely. Sean, they've found 78,000 new Votes since Election Day two days ago in Broward County, and 15,000 more Votes in Palm Beach. We don't know how many more Votes they're going to come up with, but it sure appears they are going to keep on finding as many Votes as it takes to try to win this Election. I've asked the Florida Law Enforcement Department to immediately do an Investigation, we've filed Law Suits. We're going to fight this and we're going to win.

daddy

Scott: ...Well what I've done is I've asked for an investigation, but we have examples. The Palm Beach County Supervisor won't allow normal Party Officials that are supposed to be reviewing ballots, they're not allowing them to do it properly, that's a violation of the Law. They were supposed to report all these end results, they're not. But how did they come up with 78,000 more votes just in Broward and 15,000 in Palm Beach? No other Florida Counties are having these problems. We had a horrible Hurricane in the Pan Handle. It didn't happen there...We won. I'm going to fight this all the way. We are looking at every legal remedy we can exercise. We are going to fight this, and we are going to win this.
======================

Governor Scott has more faith in the Legal System than I do. Good luck Senator Elect Scott.

From Georgia - in the Kemp/Abrams race - Kemp is 63,166 votes ahead. There are 21,358 "provisional" ballots uncounted.
Even if all 21,358 votes were good ballots (unlikely) and were for Abrams, Kemp would still have 50%+1 with another 12,813 votes to spare. The number of outstanding non-provisional votes, i.e., absentee, overseas, is reported to be between 2600 and 3000. It's over.

But Abrams is bringing in lawyers (of course!)

daddy

Porch,

I don't know who is to fault except for the cheating Democrats. It does appear that Governor Scott in Florida (who should have been more prepared than anyone) and Rona Romney at the RNC are doing what they can but it seems to me like it is all in the hands of the Local Judges prior to appeals to the Supreme Court. And since Atty General Sessions was only let go yesterday and he sorta' ran the DOJ, I suppose he deserves a bit of the blame as well, but my guess is he wouldn't have lifted a finger anyhow with any passion, so lets see what Acting Atty General Whitaker can come up with.

Bernardi Dr la paz

Yes Broward is well its Chinatown daddy, and palm beach well remember the butterfly squirrel.

Sessions surely knew he was done, daddy. The transition could have waited.

It's totally obvious that no one realized what was happening until today. This afternoon, even.

They should have mobilized for this weeks ago. The Dems surely did.

There was no room for error. The Dems are locked and loaded all the way down to the lowest DNC apparatchik. We knew this because they always are.

Y'all know I almost never criticize Trump. I thought they had this handled. I'm sick over this.

Well I personally can't blame Trump. He busted his ass these last many months doing a Herculean job of campaigning night after night across the country. Sometimes the Captain of the Ship has to rely on the "expertise" of his subordinate Officers to do what they're supposed to be doing. Trump can't do it all, and in this case I don't know what else he could do.

I'm sick over this as well.

In addition to FL and AZ, this calls into question Walker's loss, and the MT senate race, at least. The MT vote count took suspiciously long, with all the delays coming from blue districts.
