The Morning Report 11/10/22

Good morning, kids. Thursday and 24 hours later, I still don’t know how to process the aftermath of what by all logic and reasoning should have been, if not the massive red tsunami that was pimped in the media, at the very least a clear victory that took back both chambers of Congress and gave us more governorships. I do not know how we fared down-ballot in state legislatures and those are proving absolutely crucial insofar as attempting to reverse course. But I am digressing and I’m not even out of the first paragraph.

Yesterday’s editorial focused in on my fears of electoral shenanigans. I still stand by that assessment, but perhaps now not as the sole factor but a big factor. That’s bad enough, but the big fear I have is what if my perspective as a near senior citizen raised by normal parents in a relatively sane society and culture (the madness of the 60s and 70s notwithstanding) is now completely out of phase with that of the younger generations who are now adults that were brainwashed in the propaganda mills of American academia?

Robert Spencer’s analysis echoes my fears:

The establishment media was setting us all up to accept a steal, proclaiming that on Tuesday evening, there might be a “Red Mirage,” that is, the appearance of overwhelming Republican victories that would later be overturned by bogus mail-in ballots, as soon as those who fix elections knew how many they needed. As it turned out, either the shenanigans are now so baked into the system that no prolonged period of fiddling with the totals is needed, or massive numbers of Americans actually like the way things are going under the misrule of Old Joe Biden’s handlers.

Embrace the power of “and,” Robert.

As Ace pointed out yesterday, abortion turned out to supposedly be a massive driver of Democrat voters, especially women. And yet, polling in the months after Dobbs consistently showed abortion as virtually a non-factor in all but the most diehard of leftists. In fact, polls have consistently shown a clear majority of Americans, over 60% IIRC, favored at least some restrictions on pre-natal infanticide. That percentage has been gradually increasing over the years, not decreasing. So, if Dobbs supposedly was a motivator for the Democrats, you would think that it would energize Republicans as much if not more. So, how are we to reconcile that? And that’s just one “social” issue, in the midst of the rapid disintegration of our economy, the border and a national crime wave. It makes no sense to me.

Are we fast becoming a minority headed for extinction, naturally or otherwise? And yet, to completely ignore the fact that we no longer have an election day but an election season, whose only purpose is to give the Democrat Party enough time to produce enough phony ballots to overcome a defeat at the hands of a Republican candidate, is sticking our heads in the sand. Daniel Greenfield nails it.

We don’t have Election Day anymore. We have Election Week and Election Month.

Over 42 million early votes were cast this election. That’s not as bad as the catastrophic 2020 election of over 100 million votes where the deciding electorate seemed to be ballot harvesters, but it takes us back to 2018. And that was bad enough because it’s becoming the new normal.

In 2014, there were 21 million early votes. We’re at double that.

In presidential elections, they want to make 69% of the country voting by mail or early voting, the way it happened in 2020, into the floor. And then go up from there.

And that means we don’t have elections anymore.

What happens when you have Election Month? The dead vote and the dead get elected.

Rep. Tony DeLuca died in October at the age of 85. The longest serving representative was reelected anyway.

“We are proud to see the voters continue to show their confidence in him and his commitment to Democratic values by re-electing him posthumously,” Pennsylvania House Democrats said.

How the hell does something like that happen?

Early voting begins 4-6 weeks in Pennsylvania. That was enough time for Tony to die even as he was cruising his way to a re-election.

70% of the over 1.4 million voters requesting mail ballots came from Democrats. The majority of those flooded in from Allegheny County and Philadelphia.

When the system is so broken that a dead man can win because voters are literally voting for the walking dead, it needs change. And, speaking of the voting dead, congratulations to Senator-Elect Jon Fetterman who benefited from voters not realizing that he’s a zombie.

That’s what the new regime where half the country engages in early voting means. . . 

. . . Elections are supposed to empower the people to choose the government. The Democrats have made elections into a complicated system that allows them to find votes without regard to voter turnout. The system they’ve created represents a power shift from the people to the parties in which the people who show up to vote are swamped by the garbage votes mined by activists.

Instead of the people choosing elected officials, the officials choose the voters. Election Month and ballot harvesting complete the process that began with gerrymandering. They make votes into just another commodity that can be harvested regardless of public sentiment.

Elections like these don’t turn on polls or what the public wants, but whether the resources of the leftist political machine can outweigh the voters with their voter harvesting campaigns.

Look, I am not saying that the societal dissolution that has completely fucked up the minds and souls of at least two to three generations of Americans is not a factor. Everywhere you turn, from transsexualism to the push to normalize pedophilia to the Malthusian, nihilistic desire to save the planet by wiping out millions of humans and forcing those allowed to remain alive to eat bugs and worms or tree bark (PETA vs the ELF in a steel cage match), this is the mindset of those who voted (actual real votes) for the literal ham sandwich, in the form of a goon failure of a Marxist stroke victim to be a US Senator. Worse, you have a supposed “journalist” actually claiming said Lump could be a great presidential candidate. It’s only a little after 6:00AM and I need a drink.

Yet there are positive signs in the middle of this pitch black nightmare world. 

Grassroots organizations, focused on parental rights in education, are celebrating key victories in school board races across the country.

Moms for Liberty, a coalition of parents working towards transparency in education, and the 1776 Project PAC, a political group that helps school board members against Critical Race Theory get elected, saw many of their endorsed candidates win seats on school boards. Their wins in states such as Florida, Maryland, Indiana and Michigan flipped several school boards, the organizations told the Daily Caller News Foundation. 

“Last night was a disappointing night for Republicans in many parts of the country, but we’re happy to say we were very successful in key races in Florida, Oklahoma, Ohio, Maryland, which were by far the biggest places we targeted,” Aiden Buzzetti, head of coalitions and candidate recruitment for the 1776 Project PAC, told the DCNF. “We also officially flipped our 100th school board since our first election in November 2021.”

While one cannot escape the feeling that 60-plus years of Marxist indoctrination in the schools and the fading away of the collective memory of what America and a sane society is supposed to be is what did the trick, these parents and their children represent the future. They know that what’s happening to them and to their children is absolutely wrong. Worse, evil. Like the state legislatures, the community boards and school boards are really where the action is, insofar as resisting the Deep State and more crucially preventing the brainwashing of yet another generation of American children.

And here’s another indicator of, if not good news, then at least of a great realignment (I am loathe to use the word “reset” for obvious reasons).

“The populist GOP’s share of the Latino vote jumped by a third to almost 40 percent, compared to 2018, according to the exit polls. Eleven percent of the electorate are Latinos, so this 2018 to 2022 shift is a gain of 1 percent nationally. That 1 percent shift is more than enough to decide many close races.”

No doubt perhaps more than just a handful of those races were decided on Tuesday because of this shift. Beyond elections, this is yet another indicator that politics as usual cannot and will not go on as they did pre-2020.

For sure, the Democrats will cement voter fraud wherever they can. Yet, their policies will continue to drive people away from Leftist fiefdoms and into places like Florida, without becoming as Mark Levin coined them “locusts,” who flee what they voted for only to continue voting for that which they fled. 

Sunshine State observers said after Tuesday saw Democratic leaders re-elected or voted in — coupled with Gov. Ron DeSantis’s landslide entrenchment — they expect the exodus to Florida will continue. “People are leaving these states for a lot of different reasons,” said Laura Gambino of Global Real Estate Advisors in Palm Beach. “Crime, quality of life, taxes. I think with the elections going the way they did, the trend is going to continue. . .

. . . “The crime, the mandates, the general insanity,” she said. “I think people are just looking at their lives and thinking there has to be a better place to raise their children.” Illinois native Robert Cowhey, who left the state for Florida a decade ago said his son, who lives in Chicago, was plotting his departure Wednesday morning after Gov. J.B. Pritzker re-election. “I talked to my son and my cousin today,” he said. “They want out. Crime is a major issue. They don’t like Pritzker, they don’t like Lori Lightfoot, they don’t like any of it. I think people are just going to continue to leave.”

Florida Atlantic University Prof. Ken Johnson, who specializes in migration trends, said he expects outside interest in the state to persist due its recent economic development and diversification. “From what I hear on the ground, people come to Florida because it’s prospering,” he said. “It used to be the sunshine. Now it’s the sunshine and the economy.”

I’m still confused about what all this really means. The only thing we can be sure of is that we are still in a period of transition. Say what you will about Donald Trump (and do not blame him for Tuesday’s fizzle), but he opened up a lot of eyes and raised a lot of consciousness about what’s really going on, and the possibilities for what could be. Whether he or Ron DeSantis carries the banner going forward remains to be seen. To be sure, before things get better, and please God if things get better, we are going to endure a lot of pain and suffering before our deliverance. That is the price that has to be paid for seeing things as they are and being forced to make a choice, not between Trump and DeSantis, but between living on our knees or dying on our feet.

Let’s hope that last bit is rhetorical and not literal. Onward.
