Project Veritas Videos on Dem Voter Fraud and Intimidation at Rallies

On October 11, Project Veritas released a video from December 2015, in which Alan Schulkin, one of the commissioners of the Board of Elections of New York City stated plainly that people are bused from one polling site to another (to another to another) to vote multiple times on the same Election Day. Do you have a friend whom you suspect never shows up to vote? You can show up in his place? Is your deceased aunt still on the voter rolls? Here's your way of keeping her spirit alive!

New York is one of the many states that does not require photographic identification from people voting, which enables fraud like this to take place -- fraud that we're ensured over and over again never happens. Schulkin acknowledges in the video that asking for ID really should not be a big deal. He is also getting more and more conservative every day, and, now that this video is out, maybe the poor, soon-to-be-ostracized fellow will feel free to drop the façade and swing over.

Then, this week came the video of Scott Foval, who has since, uh, "resigned," essentially confirming (and then some) what Schulkin had said. From this video we have proof that state lines are often crossed (e.g. Iowa) for the voter fraud to continue, and that rental cars are being considered as "safer" (i.e. less vulnerable to being caught) alternatives to buses. Foval has also said that they were giving people financial compensation to stir up trouble at Donald Trump rallies.

If there's some context that makes this footage somehow less damning to Democrats, I can't conceive of it.

Much has been said about Trump's comment that the election is "rigged." "Rigged" means it's already decided, which most people don't believe. An election doesn't have to be "rigged" for large portions of voter fraud to have an effect upon it, however. Those are two separate things.

A rigged baseball game means the umpires have decided to let one team win. They don't need to
do that in order for one team to win by cheating, however.

Anderson Cooper didn't hesitate to bring up Donald Trump's comments about women (perhaps rightfully so). Will this massive fraud be brought up tonight?

Your move, Chris Wallace.

Three Women Point Out the Hypocrisy in the Reaction to Trump's Denigrating Words

As I've written before, I found Trump's conversation with Billy Bush in 2005 to be putrid and objectifying, and I'm tired of those who will dismiss it as "just how men talk and think." I bristle when anyone paints the entire male gender as a horde of lechers, and this isn't helping.

...but I'm also tired, also as I've written before, of selective outrage. And (at least) three fairly prominent female columnists agree with me. (Click on the links for the entire pieces.)

Heather MacDonald: "If any of these newfound exponents of female modesty felt any comparable nausea at the blatant display of female Beyoncé’s acclaimed rock video “Formation,” say, they kept it to themselves. Beyoncé and her female chorus line rhythmically thrust...while Beyoncé brags of her sexual prowess...No objections to that destruction of the innocence of childhood from the DNC."

D.C. McCallister: "I find this reaction to Trump's private conversation rather ironic. It's ironic coming from a secular culture that long ago declared objective morality dead. It's ironic coming from politicos and media bottom-feeders who defended the abusive and disgusting behavior of Bill Clinton, not when he was a private citizen but when he was a sitting president."

Margot Anderson: "The chief offense Trump is being accused of is 'objectifying women,' i.e. denying their dignity and humanity. But what about treating human life as a disposable clump of cells?"

Hillary Clinton Colluding with Press -- oh, and Has a Mouth to Rival Trump's

While I have a few backlogged posts I've been working on for a few months -- even in my head -- it's been an eventful few days. Donald Trump's unearthed comments, whether an unserious "joke" or not, were horrid. Simply put, I cringe at a man's comment that he grabs a woman "by the p---y." For the record, I also cringe at any woman's comment about grabbing a man "by the b---s," although we all know that too many people don't bat an eyelash upon hearing that.

While I don't know if Hillary Clinton has ever made such a comment, it appears she's said plenty of things, usually in a rage, that Trump or any other man would be castigated for. The Intercept has just such a list of quotations attributed to HRC, taken from books written about the (first?) Clinton White House. Even with words slightly censored, I apologize for the implied profanity, anti-male slurs, and anti-semitism:

"F**k off! It's enough that I have to see you ****-kickers every day, I'm not going to talk to you too!! Just do your G*damn job and keep your mouth shut." -- (American Evita by Christopher Anderson, page 90. Hillary yells at State Troopers after one allegedly told her "Good Morning.")

"Where's the miserable c*ck sucker?" --  (The Truth About Hillary by Edward Klein, page 5. Hillary Clinton screams this at a Secret Service agent.)

"Stupid k**e." -- (Hillary Clinton: The Other Woman by Dolly Kyle. Hillary used the epithet about Jewish people.)

If she's still (allegedly) making such comments, we don't know, but her campaign has been busy constructing a rather extensive naughty-and-nice list of members of the MSM. Glenn Greenwald's piece also explains that the campaign is also giving marching orders to their media allies:

At times, Clinton’s campaign staff not only internally drafted the stories they wanted published but even specified what should be quoted “on background” and what should be described as “on the record.”

Yes, Trump makes many of us ill. But one of the many problems with him is that he is allowing the mainstream media to ignore Clinton's many indiscretions. They would be attempting to do so regardless of who her opponent was, but another opponent wouldn't be making it this damn easy for them.

Fallon Causes Left-Wing Freak-Out, Part II.

Still shaking my head at the hissy fit the American left had over Jimmy Fallon's Trump interview a couple of weeks ago. The main charge this time was that Fallon had "humanized" Trump by giving him a regular interview, and playfully mussing his hair. Say what you will about Trump, but he is a person, and it's hard to "humanize" a human being.

One columnist, in particular, pointed to David Letterman as an example of a late-night host who found some sort of balance between comedian and water-carrier for the Democrat Party (probably not how he put it, exactly, but hey...). Hello? Anyone remember Letterman's last few years at CBS? He was unsufferable -- a partisan, bitter man. I remember a few weeks after President Obama's SOTU addresses, when Dave replayed the clip of Marco Rubio sipping some bottled water for maybe ten straight shows, apropos of nothing: "Hey, Paul, are you thirsty? Are you thirsty, Paul?" And Paul Shaffer would pretend to laugh, while the audience also pretended to laugh.

There's a precedent for the left-wing freak-out. Remember when Fallon had Sarah Palin on -- long after 2008, not to ridicule her, but to have her do a Vladimir Putin sketch with her? People lost their s---. That Fallon had had President and First Lady Obama on for sketches didn't matter to them; the reaction was that Fallon was "DEAD" to them from now on. "DEAD." And the reaction this time is even stronger, because Trump is kinda sorta more relevant than Palin was at the time.

The fact that Fallon had Hillary Clinton on and didn't grill her on her 38 different scandals should pacify some of these libs...but it won't, of course.

Here is a great guest column from Dave Berg about how Colbert/Bee/Oliver/Meyers have relinquished their role as comedians and are now doing one-sided advocacy.

Thanks, Famous Actors

...I know this is kind of a weird year, and many of us believe we're caught between a rock and a hard place, but when I view this parody that features ordinary, relatively unknown Americans (, I'm reminded of William F. Buckley's famous line, "I'd rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University."

Replace the Harvard faculty with oh-so-endearing celebs such as Mark Ruffalo, Neil Patrick Harris, and Rosie Perez, and Buckley's comment gets multiplied by about nineteen. Watch and love.
