Holding my Breath – What if there is Fraud again?

This should be a “red wave.”

All of the polls say that Republicans will take the House and the Senate by relatively wide margins. The Real Clear Politics polls page is showing a lot of red, and since everyone knows that the polls are all skewed blue, they have applied “correction factors” and show a Republican victory in many close races.

Even Politico admits that the House will change hands and that there is a better than even chance in the Senate. And those liberal propagandists would do anything to convince their readers they have a chance.

It appears that none of the candidates have slowed down their campaigning, they will go up to the last minute. I’m getting over 600 campaign emails per day – some from campaigns I am following, others from campaigns I have never heard of.

I should be elated. Not just one poll, but almost all of the polls are showing a resounding victory for Republicans.

And yet…

For some reason, I’m nervous. I’m holding my breath.

What if there are midnight surprises? Surely we are prepared for those, but once votes come into the system and are separated from their identity information, the fraud can no longer be proven. To cheat in an election is a criminal act, but the criminals are intelligent and have the advantage. They can plan months in advance, they can arrange for opportunities in the shadows, they have the advantage of surprise.

And what if the Democrats have found new ways to cheat? Republicans have already filed lawsuits in swing states. This is a good strategy because it will require that chains of evidence are maintained. What will they find?

I don’t condone political violence. President Biden has said there is no place for political violence in America (while overlooking political violence in places like Portland, the hypocrite…).

But to undermine elections, to interfere with the very essence of democracy is a crime of great magnitude, an existential threat to America, as certain a death to our Constitution and our freedom as being conquered by the likes of Putin or Xi.

I’m holding my breath because I remember. I remember soldiers who have fought for our country, throughout history. I remember in my government days concluding that if I died for my country, it would have been a well-lived life. And I remember Thomas Jefferson:

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants

Does this still apply?

    A lot of us are still wondering why you keep using the word again?

    Sort of like in: “holding my breadth, what if the world is flat again.”

    • Tom

      Funny thing is, every time Trump demanded a recount, he lost votes. And what about that famous Trump statement, “Just find me 12,800 votes!” You have to watch Joe, he is a crafty little word smither! He uses the word again so that you will think, “Its a foregone conclusion that….” He did it to me in a recent blog where he restated what I said and replaced the word “the” with the word “her” so as to make people think I said that the lady owned the company, when what I really said was “her and THE company”. So watch Joe, he will word smith you right in to an alternate reality if you let him!

    “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants”

    We’re still waiting for blood from the wannabe tyrant Trump…

    • Sam

      That could happen. But you’re scared of trump. Your chicken shit party is afraid of trump. Lol. And you people ain’t fit to kiss his ass.

      • frank stetson

        Luckily you are extremely fit enough to kiss his fat ass. Hard to miss your target on that one, but you already know that. Pucker up, butter cup.

      • B

        Trump, since he LOST to Biden BIGLY, is now our best friend… Anywhere he goes to “help”, Republicans lose. And it will be so satisfying when he’s indicted for treason, insurrection, election tampering, and maybe a few other things.

        And if anyone is scared, it’s Republicans, who keep trotting out Clinton, Hunter Biden, Soros, and even “big tech” whenever they lose an election. You never stop to think about whether it might be related to taking away voting and women’s rights, or support of violent right wing “patriots” that attacked the Capitol, threaten people at the polls, and attack politicians, or the racism that Trump followers show, or “low quality candidates” (i.e. fucking idiots) who spout conspiracy theories.

    • Tom

      Sorry to inform you that you will have to wait a little longer to get blood from turnip Trump. He is still busy exacting blood from his own party – with the latest be DeSantis where he named him De Sanctimonious. I guess Chaney blood was not enough for him and his bitch McCarthy.

      Hunter loves you

      • Tom

        I was not aware that you knew Hunter this well!

        • frank stetson

          Well you know Hunter has a new hobby after the crack n prostitute phase.

          Now he does art. :>)

          • Joe Gilbertson

            And says his art at high prices to rich people. I’m thinking “the big guy” gets his cut.

    • Joe Gilbertson

      If Trump had actually wanted blood, you would have had it. But Trump is civilized, unlike the Democrat sponsored BLM and Antifa rioters who actually DID spill blood – and not for the tree of liberty, but because of Democrat lies and propaganda.

      • frank stetson

        I truly hope you get your desires. At this point, why the fuck not.

        I really don’t think Hunter is funding Joe. You can say what you want, but when you pull it out of your ass like this, it just smells.

        Trump got his blood. It’s called 1.6. Plus the Summer of Floyd, BLM,, Antifa —- it’s all on TRUMPS WATCH. He could have stopped it. He could have toned it down. He just makes it worse and then blames someone else.

        Where’ Ben? Did you ban Ben?

        Do you think Trump coined DeSantimonious after reading your site? That would be uber cool, and I think I taste a bit of vomit in my mouth at the same time :>)

        Seriously, do you think your calling for blood, predetermining a Democrat win MUST be fraud. How can you say you don’t condone political violence when you then paste a quote calling for political violence? Hypocrite or just really stupid? Do you think you are fooling anyone? Like Trump, if people actually believe your bullshit and spill a little blood, you will be no where to find, hiding under your rock, cowering, while telling everyone you were a secret agent that can’t keep a secret.

    my feeling there will be fraud on a massive scale. The left will then refuse to investigate it. Pretty much what are you going to do about it. Pissing off the right leaning population. The left want to spark a war where they can instill Marshal law and close everything. They want a all out war against the public Just look around the country where early cheating has already been exposed. Let’s just hope that red states do the right thing!

    • Tom

      I seem to recall that the strategy of declaring Marshall Law was what Trump wanted to do. I guess Trump is a RINO too!

      • frank stetson

        ssssh, that’s a secret Tom…..

        • Tom

          Oops! Sorry Frank!

    • frank stetson

      65 court cases, a half dozen recounts, we don’t have to investigate, you need to bring something more than bullshit to the table.

      Marshall law was your plan for 1/6/2021, don’t put it off on us, brother.

      Where has early cheating been exposed?

      Now, we do have a whole bevy of Republican election deniers who will make sure only Republicans win going forward. At least that’s what some claim.

      Let’s just hope that you come to your senses and start smelling the coffee. The 2020 election was fair and balanced. You lost. You tried to prove fraud. You lost. You tried again. You lost. You stormed the Capitol. You lost your freedom and are going to jail. Now you say: “please sir, can I have some more?” Wake up and smell the coffee.

      • Joe Gilbertson

        All investigations by the people who committed the fraud, and all after the evidence had been removed. It was well planned. Sometimes the bad guys win.

        But what happens if we wake up tomorrow and the Democrats have won again? Even you have to be suspicious in that case.

        • frank stetson

          I will be suspicious if the facts lead me to be. Democrats winning what is arguably the tightest midterm in awhile is not an automatic on that.

          Your supposition that the investigators perpetrated a fraud, a well planned one that our most brilliant Republican minds can neither figure out or find, much less prove with evidence viable in court, is like an enigma wrapped up in a ti foil hat conspiracy. It’s stupid enough to be true. In Trump land at least. By Trumpers.

          Now that we know what you know before you even know it, if Democrats win a race, it’s as clear as mud. You are crazy, or at least you have crazy thoughts.

  4. Andy

    The only fraud I know about is the entire Republican Party.

    • Sam

      So go ahead Andy. Vote for Marxist commies. But know this. They will never rule over most of us. Just you liberal ass kissers

      • frank stetson

        Wow Sam, what a patriot. If you don’t like a fair election, you refuse all government. That’s democracy, brother. Just like to know how you plan to do that? How does one avoid rule by a government of the opposing party?

        • Tom

          Easy Frank, you try to declare Marshall Law! And we all know who tried that in 2021!

          • Sam

            The courts refused to do the right thing. Why do we care now? Trump will probably never get the nomination, which is step one to being elected. Call me a believer in the “ big lie” or whatever. I truly believe that trump won the election. But that’s then. Nothing will change. It’s just hard to imagine most Americans being stupid enough to elect Joe Biden. If trump were to be re-elected we would have a much stronger and prosperous country. And safer for many reasons. But I chose to go forward and live my life. At least baby murder took a hit. The 2nd amendment is safe (for now) Afirmitive action is going down. Religious freedom is being protected. And the list goes on. So looking back, I’m grateful for president trump and his 4 years in the White House. And no, I’m not caving to socialism and Marxist government. And there’s plenty more of us Don’t doubt it. Our government has already been weaponized against us and if we don’t stick together we will hang separately.

        Josef Stalin said it best “It isn’t who votes that count, It’s who counts the votes”.
        Remember, all the big urban centers are controlled by the Democrats, and who
        counts the votes there?

        • frank stetson

          K Sny , some clarification so you don’t look stupid.

          Stalin never said that. It’s right-wing blogosphere urban legend. Biden did say something like it…..for this year’s election.

          First, most cities are Democratic, but clearly, not all. To find the Republican held cities, just look for the highest crime rates. Just kidding but pretty true. Can you say Bakersfield.

          Meanwhile, to preserve the election fairness, up to 48 states mandate a specific political party ratios for poll workers and vote counters. And in the cities, Republicans DO NOT have to have a red R branded on their forehead. IOW, the Dems don’t even know where they are. OMG.

          Besides those errors, you were spot on.

          Sometimes I have to ask myself, do Republicans check anything before they open their mouths to spew such easy errors.

      • frank stetson

        I thought we were Trump ass kissers.

        Can’t you get your asses right?

  5. Darren

    Have any of you people against Trump ever bothered to look up the things he accomplished as President with all the turmoil he was under.
    You have to check specifically to see what he did as president.
    The news never commentated on anything positive. His accomplishments were outstanding and a lot of them firsts for a president.
    Trump did what an elected official is supposed to do, he listened to his constituents.
    Bush did nothing the people asked for, he went about his own agenda like the Democrat’s would have done.
    Trump is not bought and paid for like other presidents that have been in office. Both Republican and Democrats are scared of him as he threatens their way of life. If everything in your life is great, Cheap gas, cheap food, great life, you do not need your elected official for anything of importance. When this happens THEY are mitigated to just their income from their job. God forbid there is no crisis in any ones life to put them in a position of importance were their is a chance to make real money from leverage of the job.

    • Mike

      Darren, the only “accomplishments” you mention for trump were actually things he inherited from Obama. And somehow you managed to overlook the increased deficit, the fact that farmers had to be bailed out due to his trade restrictions and the disastrous foreign policy under his watch-our Allie’s trusted us to follow through on agreements prior to trump-No longer…

    • frank stetson

      That’s a Larry post, look it up.

      We even agreed to some.

      But, so what? Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

      Trump did not listen to the majority of the country. He started by saying his landslide victory gave him a mandate. He lies. He had no landslide in the popular vote and he wrote off anyone who voted against him and did what his faithful wanted. Worse yet, he just did what various senators, representatives, right-wing cable news butchers, and the pillow guy wanted.

      Taxes = ryan
      Immigration and the border = sessions
      health care = oh fuck, never mind, he did nothing for healthcare, the number one issue of his voters and the other ones too.

      and so on and so on.

      Let’s face it, the guy may “manage” well, but he does not have an original idea. He just had a decade’s worth of tea party bills and some ready-made EO blisterpacks he could sign. He even said once: “I don’t care, give me anything and I will sign it.” Puts new color in the old “have to pass the bill so people could find out what’s in it.”

  6. Mike

    Joe, You really don’t have to worry about fraud-trump is not on the ballot so doubtful that his followers will attempt to vote multiple times or cast votes for their deceased mother. Or were you lying to us instead and referencing toe non-exultant fraud that continues to be alleged by right wing idiots? The fraud that trumps own administration called non-existent? Or were Krebs and Barr simply “Rinos” in your opinion?

    • Joe Gilbertson

      If Trump were perpetrating fraud, do you honestly think he would have lost in 2020?

      • B

        That’s how he won 2016, but Democrats recognized it and prevented it in 2020. Plus, Trump really pissed off a lot of people and motivated them to vote for Biden.

  7. frank stetson

    He didn’t say he was good at it.

    Just toss your burger at the wall and move on.

    At least wait for results before lying about more voter fraud.
