There was talk leading up to the “election” of Nov. 3 that this may be the last presidential election in the United States if things do not change. This argument was made by both sides.

Looking over the debris of the Nov. 3 debacle, I will contend that the last real presidential election already occurred – in 2016. In fact, if the mess in this current “election” is not straightened out, I for one will likely not participate in a “presidential election” again.

I will not be a sheep for the corrupt left-wing crowd that manipulated the “election” just past. If it looks like this will continue in the future, the best thing to do is not participate; for by participating, one adds an air of legitimacy to what is going on.

There is credible evidence of chicanery and malfeasance in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia. It looks like there was just plain incompetence in Arizona.

Hopefully, the courts will straighten it out.

But a few more tidbits for you to consider. Judicial Watch has a newly released study that shows 353 U.S. counties have 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens. If you are not familiar with Judicial Watch, they have some teeth.

From their site: “In 2018, the Supreme Court upheld a voter-roll cleanup program that resulted from our settlement of a federal lawsuit with Ohio. California settled a NVRA [National Voter Registration Act] lawsuit with us, and last year began the process of removing up to 1.6 million inactive names from Los Angeles County’s voter rolls.

"Kentucky also began a cleanup of hundreds of thousands of old registrations last year after it entered into a consent decree to end another Judicial Watch lawsuit. In September 2020, we sued Illinois for refusing to disclose voter roll data in violation of Federal law.”

Rasmussen has conducted a survey since the “election” that determined that 44% of the Democrat presidential election voters did not vote for the Democrat candidate, but against President Trump.

Fox News did a similar survey and determined that 51% of the Democrat presidential election voters did not vote for the Democrat candidate, but voted against President Trump.

So, in other words, these people would have voted for Lassie, if Lassie had been on the ballot. Therefore, the Democrat candidate plus Lassie received the biggest vote in history. This type of voting is cutting off your nose to spite your face.

Cleaning up an issue from last week. Some of you don’t like the adjective I put in front of the Democrat candidate’s name recently. It is curious, you don’t seem to be proud of what he is. But I am nothing, if not accommodating. Henceforth, I’ll call him Lassie and perhaps call his partner in crime Scooby-Doo.

The chicanery isn’t over.

Out-of-state Democrats are temporarily moving in with relatives in Georgia so they can vote in the famous January Senate runoffs. We know this from people we know who are taking in their relatives to do this. There is no residency length requirement here, but they will have to get a Georgia issued ID in order to vote (Georgia somehow is able to enforce a voter ID law). The two Democratic candidates already have ads on television here this week (not a crime).

As an aside, and as a public service, if you conservatives are struggling to find a news source that gives the whole story, not just the leftist side, I have done the research and here are a few: www.spreely.com; www.nationalfile.com and www.parler.com.
