The Morning Report - 12/7/20 [J.J. Sefton]

Good morning, kids. Monday, December 7th. The 79th anniversary of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. Funny how the names Arizona, Pennsylvania and Nevada have particular meaning all these many years later. May G-d bless the memory of those who were killed that day as well as the survivors, who grow fewer and fewer with each passing year, who are still with us. I cannot begin to imagine what they must think of the nation as it is today, considering what they sacrificed so much for in trying to preserve it. The irony is beyond tragic that subsequent generations of their progeny are now actively embracing essentially the same ideology which that generation fought and died to protect them against. But here we are.

Turning our attention to the situation at hand, on the plus side of the ledger, Team Trump scored a pretty important win on Friday.

A judge in Michigan is allowing a forensic investigation of 22 Dominion vote tabulation machines in rural Antrim County over claims that the votes there were compromised.

"Our team is going to be able to go in this morning at about 8:30 and will be there for about eight hours to conduct that forensic examination and we'll have the results in about 48 hours, and that'll tell us a lot about these machines," attorney Jenna Ellis said...

...Jeremy Scott, Antrim County spokesperson said forensic images will be taken from the county precinct tabulators used in the November 3rd election. The president's legal team was not responsible for the lawsuit, it was filed by a voter, William Bailey, who alleged the ballots were damaged during a recounting of ballots in a village marijuana proposal that barely passed.

Elsenheimer's order doesn't mention the presidential race but, Antrim county did experience strange voter irregularities. Initially, the ballot count in this deep red county showed that former Vice President Joe Biden won however after a recount was done results showed that President Trump won by several thousand votes.

Meanwhile, the Constitutional aspect of the case, vis a vis the state's courts interfering with the legislative branch's authority to run election, looms large in Pennsylvania. Constitutional and legal expert Mark Levin is calling for SCOTUS to intercede:

"What we see here is fraud perpetrated against the people of Pennsylvania, against the American people and the Electoral College process by politicians who violated the constitution repeatedly, who have violated the rule of law by a rogue state supreme court," Levin stated. "And unless the U.S. Supreme Court -- as it did in Bush versus Gore -- exercises legitimately its power of judicial review. We have a potential constitutional crisis in this matter. And in one way or another, Congress will have to resolve it on January 6. But the U.S. Supreme Court shouldn't just sit there and take a pass when in fact it is time for the U.S. Supreme Court to intercede, which is exactly what the petitioners are asking it to do."

The Great One also interviewed Patrick Basham, the founding director of the Democracy Institute on his Life, Liberty and Levin show yesterday, where he broke down a lot of the anomalies that serve to underscore the eyewitness accounts of fraud and other specific hard evidence showing beyond any reasonable doubt that the election was indeed stolen:

At bottom, it's completely bizarre that Biden did not sweep the United States. Instead, he swept a few specific precincts. If Biden were as popular as his victory indicates, wouldn't his support have been enormous in every state in which he won? It's simply inconceivable to a logical person that every non-polling metric predicted a massive Trump victory, only to have Biden win in a handful states that had election anomalies never before seen in an American election -- but often seen in a Venezuelan one.

In Georgia, we have two varieties of anti-American crackpot vying for the Senate seats in a dual runoff election that more than likely was nearly stolen from the two iffy Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. Yes, for now we have to drag them over the finish line to preserve our hold on the Senate. That does not diminish in any way, shape or form my loathing of the GOP. That party will have to go the way of the dodo at a time when temporary emergency political expediency will no longer be a factor in having to deal with them.

Two great essays from Victor Davis Hanson (here and below) and Bruce Thornton (here and below) put this past year and all its madness in perspective. No matter who is sworn in come January 20th, the madness will no doubt continue. It's just that with Trump, we still have a chance at survival, as a nation and perhaps even individually.
