Voter Fraud: An interesting analysis is attached at the end of this week’s newsletter showing there was some voter fraud, but nowhere near enough to change the results of the last presidential election.
There were clearly irregularities, “interpretations” of procedures and many suspicious activities that raised questions amongst many about the integrity of the elections. That’s why it is VERY important to continue to address voter integrity, pass laws that make it easier to vote but harder to cheat, and restore faith in our electoral system.
I think the concerns so many raised are very well laid out in Mollie Hemingway’s book call “Rigged” which best describes what actually happened and what can be proven. There is no question the system was used and rigged to favor the Democrats, and that should NOT be the role of local or state governments. Partisan voter activities should be left to the parties and carefully regulated.
I would encourage everyone to read the analysis below and read Mollie’s book. Understand what is at stake and continue to insist on fair, transparent, and verifiable elections. It is incumbent on political leaders engaged in electoral politics to make the changes necessary that will make everyone more confident in the fact our democracy works.
Make it easier to vote and harder to cheat.
Attributed to Nikita Khrushchev: “Your children’s children will live under communism. You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright; but, we will keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you will finally wake up and find you already have Communism. We will not have to fight you. We will so weaken your economy, until you will fall like overripe fruit into our hands. The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not”
Socialism leads to Communism. How do you create a Socialist State? There are eight levels of control:
1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people
2) Poverty – Increase the poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them.
3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state.
5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect (food, housing, income) of their lives because that will make them fully dependent on the government.
6) Education – Take control of what people read, what they listen to, and take control of what children learn in school.
7) Religion – Remove the belief in God from the government and schools because the people need to believe in ONLY the government knowing what is best for the people.
8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. Eliminate the middle class. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to tax the rich with the support of the poor.
Just saying…if the shoe fits… she how the liberal, progressive Democrats have come such a long way!?! Regardless of who said the above quote and when, it reads like today Democrats manifesto.

Sounding the alarm over Joe Biden
President Joe Biden’s reelection prospects have seemed doubtful for months now. Many voters think the nation’s oldest president ever — he turns 80 in November — is too old for the job and is certainly too old for a second term. Many others think he’s simply doing a bad job. Many think both. And that includes Democrats who voted for Biden as well as Republicans who didn’t.
Now, we seem to have reached a turning point. In recent days, the most influential media voice among Democrats, the New York Times, has published two articles that appear to lay a foundation for pushing a reluctant Biden out of a reelection race in 2024.
Biden’s aides acknowledge that he “looks older than just a few years ago,” the New York Times reported, calling that a “political liability that cannot be solved by traditional White House stratagems like staff shake-ups or new communications plans.” While the New York Times called Biden’s energy level “impressive for a man of his age,” it nevertheless said Biden’s energy “is not what it was, and some aides quietly watch out for him.”
The Inflation Tax on Workers
Average real weekly earnings are down 4.4% in the last 12 months.
Well, that was ugly. Inflation in June roared to its highest mark to date this year, rising 1.3% for the month and 9.1% over the last 12 months. This means greater declines in real wages and more Federal Reserve tightening that is likely to hit asset prices. No wonder Americans are in a sour mood.
The price increases were “broad-based,” as the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) put it, especially for food and energy. The price index for food at home rose 1% for the month, the sixth month in a row of 1% or more and 12.2% for the last year. Energy prices rose 7.5% in the month, led by an increase in gasoline prices, as every American who has filled a gas tank knows.
Some analysts, including those at the White House, are finding solace because the “core” price index, sans food and energy, rose only 0.7%, or 5.9% over 12 months. President Biden hit this point in his statement Wednesday. But core prices accelerated in June from May, and are up at an annual rate of 8% in the last three months. Inflation can’t be dismissed as largely the result of energy prices and Ukraine…
… The greatest tragedy is for American workers, who are suffering the largest reduction in real wages since the 1970s.
House GOP marches into deeper blue terrain as Dem prospects fade
With just four months until the midterms, Democrats were already on the defensive in at least 30 highly competitive districts.
Rep. Kim Schrier called it an “honor” to welcome President Joe Biden to suburban Seattle for a health care speech in April. Then, nearly three months later, the Washington Democrat used a TV ad to boast about “taking on” the Biden administration over gas prices.
This kind of pivot in a House battleground — which Biden won by 7 points just two years ago — isn’t an anomaly. Recent GOP polling in roughly a dozen swing districts offers a bleak portrait of how President Joe Biden’s anemic approval ratings are threatening to doom battle-tested swing-seat incumbents — and nudge once-safe districts into the middle of the danger zone.
“I literally laughed out loud,” Army veteran Jesse Jensen, one of Schrier’s GOP opponents, said of the first time he saw the ad. “She is claiming — because she finally looked at some polling and realized that he’s unpopular — that she’s this independent-minded free spirit that is fighting the administration. And she’s been a rubber stamp for him every single step of the way.”
With just four months until the midterms, Democrats were already on the defensive in at least 30 highly competitive districts. But Biden’s toxicity has given the GOP optimism about seriously contesting a fresh crop of about a dozen seats that the president won in 2020 by 9 points or more — from western Rhode Island to California’s Central Valley to the suburbs of Arizona’s capital.
The result is a House map that has expanded to an uncomfortable place for Democrats. Survey data obtained by POLITICO shows the president underwater by double-digit margins in 11 districts he carried.
Candidate challenges, primary scars have GOP worried about Senate chances
Four months from Election Day, Republicans are struggling in several of the marquee races in the fight for control of the upper chamber.
At a recent Republican donor retreat in Chicago, Herschel Walker was asked a question about fiscal discipline and balancing the budget. The GOP nominee for U.S. Senate in Georgia replied with a long answer on Black Lives Matter and the police, failing to address the question, according to people with knowledge of the event.
The surprised reaction to Walker’s response was familiar to Republicans who have been tracking his struggling bid in one of the most competitive Senate contests in the nation. Since easily winning his primary, his polling edge against Sen. Raphael G. Warnock (D) has become a deficit amid erratic campaigning, verbal flubs and disclosures about three children he had not previously spoken about publicly.
The result has been a rescue mission, helmed in part by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which has led to several veteran staff hires by Walker’s campaign, including Brett O’Donnell, the party’s most celebrated debate prep strategist. It is just one of the ways GOP leaders have found themselves dealing with cleanup efforts as they round the summer bend on what should be a banner Republican election season.
Democrats are in denial about why they are losing Hispanic voters
Recent brouhahas over Jill Biden comparing Hispanics to tacos, the purchase of conservative Spanish-language radio stations with George Soros’ money and the plucky campaigns of four GOP Latinas in Texas and Virginia are symptoms of something deeper and perhaps more durable than progressives want to admit.
In fact, a reason progressives dismiss what is taking place is probably that they know that their extreme and irrational ideology is the force driving a political realignment that may rival that which took place in the 1850s, which gave us the Republican and Democratic parties.
If you want to know the catalyst for the Great Migration of voters with ancestries in Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, Cuba, etc. to conservative radio and the Republican party, look no further than this week’s surreal exchange between Sen. Josh Hawley and a Berkeley law professor insisting that men can and do get pregnant. Yes, that happened, in a Senate hearing.
You say that to an abuela, and the most likely response will be “que?” followed by a quick “adios!” That type of deep societal confusion gets you quickly to inflection points.
In the 1850s, the boiling, stinking cauldron of slavery destroyed the Whig Party and divided the Democrats. The two parties that we still have to this day emerged from the ashes.
White House faces disaster with young voters
President Biden is facing a disaster with young voters, increasing fears among Democrats that they are in danger of losing a generation if he doesn’t improve his standing with Generation Z.
Biden’s approval rating has declined across the board among Democrats, but the figures with people under 30 years old is cratering.
A New York Times-Siena College poll this week found 94 percent of Democratic primary voters ages 18 to 29 saying the party should nominate someone other than Biden in 2024.
Biden, 79, has never been the candidate for younger Democrats, though they did rally to help him win the White House in 2020 as the president endorsed key progressive policy initiatives to address climate change and other issues.
Now the polls suggest they could abandon him altogether amid frustration with a lack of progress in Washington on everything from climate change to abortion rights.
“A lot of the young people that I’m talking to in particular right now are asking what the point is of having a Democratic trifecta if our rights are still being ripped away,” said Ellen Sciales, communications director at the youth climate activist group the Sunrise Movement.
“Like, what’s the point of voting? And obviously we’re pushing people to vote, but it’s going to make it so much harder for us to do our jobs,” she said.
A 2020 Election Report ‘By Conservatives, For Conservatives’
Former judges, senators, and politicos take a deep dive into claims of fraud and find them baseless.
Eight prominent conservatives released a report on Thursday examining “every claim of fraud and miscount put forward by former President Trump and his advocates” following the 2020 presidential election and reached an “unequivocal” conclusion: “Joe Biden was the choice of a majority of the Electors, who themselves were the choice of the majority of voters in their states.”
Former federal judge Thomas B. Griffith, who spearheaded the report’s creation and recruited other members of the group that produced it, told The Dispatch the report has been in the works for nearly a year and a half. Along with Griffith, the signatories include two other former federal judges (J. Michael Luttig and Michael W. McConnell), two former senators (John Danforth of Missouri and Gordon H. Smith of Oregon), former U.S. Solicitor General Theodore B. Olson, Republican election lawyer Benjamin Ginsburg, and David Hoppe, former chief of staff to Paul Ryan. Two of the signatories—Ginsburg and Luttig—have testified before the House committee investigating January 6.
Motivated in part by a “fundamental dissatisfaction with having to rely on others for the information,” Griffith recruited others of like mind to volunteer for a fact-finding mission.
“I just got on the phone and started calling fellow conservatives who I trusted,” Griffith said. “Let’s do a deep dive. Let’s—don’t rely on what others are telling us, let’s look at it ourselves. And, you know, if we come to the conclusion that there are serious problems with our election system, that it’s rife with fraud, then let’s be the advocates for getting that fixed, because that’s not sustainable. On the other hand, if we find out that those stories aren’t true … then let’s get out and tell folks that.”
