It's my lucky day. I have two letters to respond to, one from Kelly Scoles, and one from Art Sandford Sr. Thank you both. I'll do my best while trying to leave some space for myself.

Mr. Sanford Sr. first.
Hello Art, I've grown old and grey with Pebbles the Wonder Dog since we last spoke in the Gazette. To save space, let me answer your comments bullet-wise.

Trump did not bully his way through the 2016 Republican primaries. He just showed strength in the midst of weakness, and voters were fed-up with weakness.

Is there something wrong with being "primarily high school-educated, white (88%) conservatives"? This is the most blatant racist remark the Gazette has reported in many years. "Unfiltered" or on the rocks, most voters were (are) hungry for traditional American populism - I remember when "Truth, justice, and the American way" was more than a mere comic book slogan.

Thanks for the congratulations on Republican wins. You mock allegations of a rigged election due to "massive fraud", but how can you answer now-emerging, forensic evidence of such massive election fraud? More in my response to Kelly Scoles. However, let it suffice here to refer you to Russell Ramsland, of Allied Security Operations Group, LLC (ASOG), who just completed his forensic analysis of Dominion machines in Antrim County, Michigan. There is no "conjuring" here, just lead-pipe cinch facts. Why not present to court? We are trying on many levels, in several courts. Latest theory on rejections - death threats (and lethal incidents) against judges and families. On all other questions, see Russell Ramsland, or several other expert forensic scientists' analyses proving sophisticated, systemic, election-turning fraud.

Nice talking with you again, Art.

Hi Kelly (Scoles),
It's always a challenge to respond to your statements and opinions because they are, as here, so numerous. You question sources, statistical anomalies, adequate proof of fraud, court decisions, Gore v. Bush rationale, Republican reaction to fraud, Hillary Clinton's loss, Dems suspicions of (eternal) Russian interference, Hillary's tardy concession, Trump's alleged "emotional problems", the totality of Trump's "grift" and "malignant despotism"! Holy cow! Let's agree to disagree on all of the small stuff and concentrate on the central issue: systemic criminal election and voter fraud sufficient to invalidate the election.

By doing this I agree to avoid unloading that warehouse of conclusive evidence of Biden family crime (i.e. Tony Bobulinski documents.)

The volume of evidence proving election-voter fraud in the 2020 election overwhelms the normal ability to even present it to courts in the short time available. The race is on between frantic cover-up agents and patriotic whistleblowers. The Democrat criminal alliance of Party, media, big tech, Wall Street, state politicians, federal politicians (deep state), government agencies, and revealed foreign players, demands a heavy boot on the brakes to enable a timely, orderly disposition of facts. This evidence of fraud is dispositive. We have till January 20, by Constitutional writ, to implement a cure, and save our Republic. Let's count two basic ways this fraud demands invalidation of this election (Way over my word allotment):

(1) On the issue of voter fraud there are more than 1,000 sworn affidavits from eye-witnesses to illegal ballot processing and denial of Republican observation, etc..

(2) Formally documented fraudulent voting machines and software. Big data mathematical analysis reveals impossible national vote outcomes by unnatural anomalies. See: Russell James Ramsland, Jr.
www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/12/interesting_nuggets_from_the_antrim.... 1. My name is Russell James Ramsland, Jr., and I am a resident of Dallas County, Texas. I hold an MBA from Harvard University, and a political science degree from Duke University. I have worked with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), among other organizations, and have run businesses all over the world, many of which are highly technical in nature. I have served on technical government panels....

1.The purpose of this forensic audit is to test the integrity of Dominion Voting System in how it performed in Antrim County, Michigan for the 2020 election.

2.We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results. The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail. This leads to voter or election fraud. Based on our study, we conclude that The Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan. We further conclude that the results of Antrim County should not have been certified.

"Additionally, the software was illegally changed, violating a legally mandated safe harbor period, including changes between tallies. Basic security was ignored. Logs were removed, and someone tried to delete the entire voting record." "This was a preliminary report, so you can expect more information. If what happened in Antrim County was repeated wherever Dominion systems are used, there's no doubt that a huge percentage of write-in votes were rerouted to people (some or all of whom may have been overseas). These people "adjusted" the votes to achieve a desired, Biden-esque outcome."

See also: Election Fraud Evidence - Jovan Hutton Pulitzer - YouTube "Jovan Hutton Pulitzer sets out how he can determine if there was wide scale voter fraud by means of scientific data" - high speed scanning of ballots alone (millions per day). Finding absolute proof quickly and easily without any concern for machine codes or Dominion software. "It is not necessary to establish who committed the fraud for the purposes of obtaining the correct results, his software can identify the exact number of fraudulent ballots and remove them from the count, declaring the true election results." Check his unimpeachable credentials as world renowned expert. This is a new way to determine fraud. This test should be done immediately. "This will determine if our vote will ever count again." Why would anyone object?

It's time to remove this pretender from his self-styled "Office of the President Elect". Our nation has not faced such a critical fight since the Civil War. As many are saying today: this a hill on which to die. The Supreme Court is our last hope. What happens two to four years from now is irrelevant. Our government cannot fall into the hands of two rank grifters. This election steal must be STOPPED - NOW.

So, Let's Roll!

 


 

Response to Kelly Scoles’ "Second Opinion" Letter to the Editor

Hi Kelly,
On the Republican side of this election there are no "baseless doubts" concerning election and voter fraud, as never before experienced in America. Their beliefs are based upon hundreds of documented cases. I provided a few links last week. I could provide hundreds more. You won't find them on any TV station, including FOX. A quick way to find these links is to consult the many "new" scrupulously, meticulously, mathematically accurate online blogs. A good start would be American Thinker. All provide solid facts concerning the massive, election-stealing fraud taking place. Check out Jay Valentine, Russell Ramsland, Navid Keshavarz-Nia, or Dr. SHIVA Ayyadurai, MIT PhD., all noted experts in their fields. You will find no honest examiner of the technical data and eye-witness evidence (sworn affidavits) of election and voter fraud to dispute this conclusion. Those who allege disbelief are either ignorant or dishonest.

Therefore, I have to believe you are ignorant of facts - have not confronted the evidence sufficiently before believing "The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history." This statement is the official lie of the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council (GCC) Executive Committee – Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). I guess the biggest lies require the biggest titles. Have you at least read Powell's complaint? The judge didn't either.

Even the most naĂŻve political neophyte anticipated fraudulent activity in this historical election, but not the scope. And the Republican Party was not naĂŻve - just (as usual) not assertive enough. Again, no one anticipated the enormity of this orchestrated fraud. A few, like Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Rep. U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly, Senator Ted Cruz, and others filing scores of lawsuits seeking hearings in state and federal courts, have fought to be heard. The extent of judicial rejection so far indicates the depth of Judicial-political corruption.

About AG Bill Barr. He remains a mystery, acting like some fifth column ringer. For "Attorney General William Barr [to declare] Tuesday the U.S. Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election" appears to be a breathtaking betrayal of Trump and the truth. It is inexplicably stunning. But I'm not omniscient, and evidence is supposed to be examined before judgment can be fairly passed. For some reason Barr ignores manifestly present fraud.

You wonder why the Dominion and Smartmatic voting system could only "negate votes for Trump"? Well, that's the central point of the whole investigation. Again, go back to Jay Valentine for an explanation - and demonstration. These machines are designed and guaranteed to produce a pre-determined winner, regardless of the ballot count. This system is notorious for creating fraudulent results, on command, by way of its Smartmatic software. This is not a "mystery", it's a known fact. So, knowing this, why did the State of Georgia buy Dominion-Smartmatic systems for a cool $100 million dollars? And, by golly, it paid off! Paper ballots would be both cheaper and safer. Computer election systems should be banned because of inherent cheating capabilities.

As for Sydney Powell, she is attempting to find an honest court to take her 200-page complaint for a hearing. So far, no success. She is a bright, gutsy woman, demanding a fair presidential election. Because, as J. Robert Smith has said:
"If the presidential elections fraud succeeds, 74 million citizens will have their votes nullified. What would this act of disenfranchisement be other than war by other means?” And my vote was one of the 74 million.

You mock my statement about evidence of fraud being "too numerous to mention here." I've given you several links. Read them, inform yourself, it's exciting to view the largest election fraud in American history unfold. Learn about the internet connections, foreign ballot tabulation, distribution to communist China, Germany, Spain. Learn about all the ballot printing, dumping, re-scanning, missing thumb drives, etc. Learn of the bullying and exclusion of Republican vote watchers, stopping the ballot count, sending Republican observers home, then continuing the count unobserved for hours. It's all very exciting; issues too numerous to mention here - but easily available for honest inquiry.

Please study the details on election and voter fraud mentioned here. There'll be a quiz on Monday.

In all seriousness, what Jay Valentine discovered as industrial scale fraud in our 2020 presidential election must be acknowledged by our judicial system. It's my prayer that, at least, our Supreme Court is sufficiently bias free to render a verdict of no confidence in this year's election - necessitating either a fresh election or a declaration of Donald Trump's reelection. The civic health of our nation demands this - most Americans will not live under socialism.

American society is staggering under the weight of 40-plus years of political corruption. Cleaning things up will be a Herculean task. But if Hercules could flush-out the Augean stable in a day, Donald Trump can flush-out the deep state swamp - after a new, honest election - with another four years.

Otherwise, our Republic has come to an ignominious end.

 


 

The life of our Republic hangs by a thread today, due to an all-embracing election fraud perpetrated by the Democratic Party and its co-conspirators. The American electorate has never before experienced fraud of this magnitude. Besides the DEMs, Trump is facing the media, Big Tech, Wall Street, the education industry, corrupt judges-lawyers, crooked governors, mayors, Members of Congress - and criminal computer companies peddling their fraudware.

The conspirators themselves can best be understood as a group of energized, Trump-hating sociopaths, determined to destroy the President at any cost. Despite this juggernaut of evildoers pursuing him, Trump will finish as conquering hero. There is now an insanely intense race by all Never-Trump conspirators to halt fraud investigations cold, by intimidation, physical attacks, even death threats.

By keeping his promise to drain the DC swamp, the President has disturbed the deep lair of swamp monster, Joe Grendel Biden. It's now the task of Beowulf Trump to cut his head off. Excuse the awkward metaphor, but we are dealing with monsters here and courage is compulsory.

Here are the facts:
President Donald Trump has won the 2020 election by a documented landslide! Documented as well are the facts proving the time, methods and instruments used in the criminal attempt to steal this election. I say "attempt" because I have confidence in the courage and determination of lawyers like Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, the large number of expert mathematicians, cyber engineers, acknowledged software and hardware specialists, who have studied the evidence and presented it for court hearings - with the hundreds of eye witnesses having provided sworn affidavits to the courts, of massive election fraud. Read what Russell Ramsland, co-founder of Allied Security Operations Group, has to say about it, as well as many other top experts.

Read the history of Dominion, as I have, and the legal-political confusion will make your head spin. This product was specifically designed by gangsters to cheat, to guarantee a winner - for a high price (paid by Democrats).

Absolute proof of criminal design in the Dominion election computers is provided by indisputable expert testimony, like Ramsland, whose complete demonstration of Dominion's fraud capabilities is shown online. His video is "a primer, not about the 2020 election, but about the way in which Dominion systems (and other voting machines) are structured to allow bad actors to manipulate votes to achieve fraudulent outcomes". See also: "Big Data to the Rescue: The Electoral College Meets Data Pattern Science," by Jay Valentine. "Here’s the summary: For the election returns in many precincts to happen the way they did, Biden would have to flip a coin 1,000 times and get heads every time. We aren’t done here. He would also have to do it over and over again, in scores, perhaps hundreds of precincts. Welcome to big data analysis." "...Using big data, measuring against historical trends, enables many of the math geeks who inhabit the internet to find these frauds."

See also: Navid Keshavarz-Nia, and Dr. SHIVA Ayyadurai, MIT PhD. Inventor of Email, @va_shiva: This count "can only be done by computer algorithm. Is so precise over so many precincts. A computer algorithm was in place to lower Trump's votes as a function of % of Republicans in a precinct. (In this case linearly)."

In Sidney Powell's 104-page complaint detailing everything she asserts took place in Georgia, she also gives a history of the Dominion computers. She quotes a Venezuelan whistleblower's direct testimony about the two systems (Dominion and Smartmatic voting machines) including, "Chávez's requirements that the software would hide vote manipulation from audits. The computers were designed to enable virtually endless vote manipulation throughout the voting process, whether printing ballots, feeding them into the counting machine, or actually counting them. The computers were also connected to the internet, so, when it came to data manipulation, no one had to be physically present with the computers. The systems have been associated with election fraud in various countries."

The 2020 election was rigged, by old-fashioned ballot stuffing, printing, and deletion, but mainly by the systemic use of fraudulent Dominion and Smartmatic voting machines and software, purposefully designed to guarantee one of the candidates will win the election; here, Joe Biden.

Evidence of systemic fraud is more than sufficient proof to invalidate the election. It is simply overwhelming, too voluminous to begin listing here.

The fate of the United States of America lies in the hands of (hopefully) honest state legislatures, District and Circuit Courts, our new Supreme Court - and oceans of prayer. That's it. If the Democratic Party is allowed to steal this election in full view of this massive fraudulent conspiracy, our Republic is lost. The Republican electorate must demand a new, honest election.

NEW ELECTION - PAPER BALLOTS ONLY!!

 


 

A combination response to Mary Scoles letter to the editor:

Hi Mary,
Some corrections to your conclusions (online Letter to Editor) are in order. First, the election is not over yet. Second, Republicans expect "significant change" in both the vote count and evidence of massive, systemic fraud. (In the law at least, "Fraud vitiates consent.") See the Supreme Court case of UNITED STATES v. THROCKMORTON, (98 US 61), finding that "Fraud vitiates everything." In this case the systemic fraud in voter count would (I believe will) invalidate the entire election. I believe the Supreme Court will decide the winner - Donald Trump. This is a scandal, in the words of attorney Sidney Powell, of "Biblical proportions."

Attorneys Sidney Powell and Lin Wood are proceeding with their federal cases based upon this historically pervasive fraud at multiple levels, nationally and internationally. America, in its two hundred forty years of existence, has never before experienced anything close to this massive, obvious cheating, by ballot, machine, software, servers, and hands-on ballot stuffing.

Statistician and fraud expert Jay Valentine ends his American Thinker column, entitled "Why Industrial Scale Fraud Is Just So Hard To Hide" with, "Get some sleep". Valentine led the team that built the eBay fraud detection engine. To affect a successful fraud investigation he says we need the source codes, log and transaction files, and the Dominion voting machines. Reports claim we have all of these materials, despite Dominion's panicked retreat from inquiring experts.

Basic forensics accounting will show sufficient criminal manipulation on a national scale to overturn an election of this magnitude.

If we look at published data pattern analyses, they show the same algorithm is used across 6-7 precincts. Where a greater proportion of straight Republican votes are found, so-called Weighted Race votes moved from Trump to Biden, Biden votes given more weight in the program. This Weighted Race aspect is a special feature which can guarantee the winner in any political race.

Centrally organized fraud was certainly occurring on a national scale. Democrats used the same type of pattern across multiple data stats in multiple states. "The trends, curbs, and algorithms were identical, and this can only happen if a centralized authority is manipulating from multiple locations. It was the pattern in 3-3 states. Dr. SHIVA Ayyadurai, MIT PhD, the inventor of Email (at age 14), scientist, engineer, tells by pattern recognition analysis, "there were mathematical impossibilities in the vote count." "We need to get Dominion machines, look at source code, and log files. Then, look at published data pattern analyses, which will show the same algorithm is used across 6-7 precincts, where they voted straight Republican ticket.” As GOP votes grew, a greater proportion of those votes moved from Trump to Biden. Curves and graphs are available that anyone can understand. From [a] layman's point of view, it's the same as flipping a coin 1,000 times and landing heads each time. This happens in not just one precinct, but in all 5-5 precincts, (the equivalent of a mathematical impossibility) and this shows the "fire" in the software for these voting machines. "A change has taken place. Computers don't glitch."

Valentine once again: "Industrial scale fraud is not sustainable because lies that big just cannot be hidden."

*****

I started out trying to show how the American people have been defrauded of an honest 2020 presidential election. I ended up getting tangled in too many details. But what is shown beyond doubt is that Donald Trump has been reelected to the presidency, by an apparent landslide. Joe Biden and his corrupt Democratic Party minions have instigated this enormous criminal conspiracy to steal the election with their magical Weighted Race software feature, phony hardware, and thousands of corrupt facilitators.

All those clamoring for proof of these facts will soon be satisfied when at least five federal lawsuits will soon be filed.

Of particular interest are lawsuits being filed by attorneys Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, and their team. Powell, as above, promises her evidence will be "Biblical." As Jay Valentine tells us: "... One honest person or two, here, are Kryptonite to industrial scale fraud." And, that scale of fraud will overturn this election.

Our hope is in the Name of the Lord - and our new, Constitution-respecting Supreme Court.

 


 

I think this will be one of the most difficult columns I've ever written. Not in terms of any great dilemma, because the required action is absolutely certain. And, not because the issue is difficult to understand; it's clear and present. The difficulty is in convincing citizens of good will to act immediately in the very short time left to save our nation - for we are close to losing it.

Though I watched closely as election day approached, and even more closely as it has passed, I only began to understand the urgency of the problem during the past week as startling details of truly massive election fraud have emerged from the confusion. President Donald J. Trump has won reelection by a landslide, though a corrupt media proclaims he has lost the election by that infamous "razor-thin margin".

Here is the truth: "The object here is to dispel this myth that Joe Biden won the presidential election." The urgent message here is for states that used the Dominion Voting Systems in their ballot counting to not certify the final count, because all voting has been infected by systemic, fraudulent software. And no, this is not some hysterical conservative alarm. The information is based entirely on mathematical analysis by eminent mathematicians, such as Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai, MIT PhD. (@va_shiva) Inventor of Email, (at age 14) and the most highly respected lawyers such as Sidney Powell.

A clear explanation of how the Dominion software is (intentionally) fraudulent can be found on numerous websites today. It was slow in coming in, but as Sidney Powell now says, it's coming in as if "from a fire hose."

Proof of systemic fraud which dramatically changed the election outcome is mathematically solid. Dr. Shiva compares the certainty of the fraud to Joe Biden "flipping a nickel one thousand times and having all flips turning up heads." His conclusions have been validated, and he challenges anyone to "Prove us wrong!"

I'm flooded with election fraud and Dominion machine history. I only have time to provide some links here, but they are all instructive if not electrifying.

Joe Oltmann was interviewed on Machel Malkin's program recently, machelMalkinLive. Oltmann is a highly respected blogger-political activist who has deeply researched the Dominion company, and one Director, Eric Coomer. Coomer is described as both a PhD nuclear physicist, VP for Security and Strategy, major shareholder - and alleged sociopath. His social media shows not only his hatred for Donald Trump, but for America in general; filled with hateful statements, vitriol, hate for police, etc. Apparently, Oltmann has copied much of Coomer's Facebook information, with very scary selfies of Coomer holding weapons, etc. This man is also a salesman for Dominion. See Malkin Live for more info. See also American Thinker for additional info.

For some reason FOX news has been quiet about the details of this astounding, election-invalidating fraud accusation. The rest, the corrupt CNN, etc, are virtually silent on the issue.

In short, our 2020 presidential election has been mathematically proven to have been systemically fraudulent, which should invalidate the outcome entirely.

The incidents of fraud are numerous, from deleting ballot images (violation of USC code 20701-20702), to vote transfers. These fraudulent vote transfers from Trump to Biden were facilitated by a (notorious) computer algorithm, "a Weighted Race Algorithm method, transferring a percent of votes from one candidate to another, a weighted decimal value."

Diebold (voting machines) had original feature which was sold to other companies. Dr. Shiva asks if a coup is underway.

What should cause American citizens to "take arms" (politically) is the fact that the Dominion machines are purposely designed to cheat, to switch votes - that's the only reason a city, state, or country would want to purchase one with this software feature. These machines have been used in Cuba to guarantee victory for Castro's successor; and in Venezuela, to guarantee a dictator's victory. What’s more, our CIA and FBI have known about this for years. The deepest of the Deep State is here exposed.

In conclusion, research these allegations (and proofs) for yourself. This election must be invalidated. President Trump has been reelected in a (covered-up) landslide!

 

It's possible, now even probable, that this election may prove to be the most stunning embarrassment in American history, for the Democratic Party.

I know the odds are wildly against this happening, just as they were in 2016, when Hillary had ordered the fireworks and the media was drunk with joyful anticipation. But, hey, at my age I can deal with whatever rebuke I may bring upon myself if wrong. After all, I'm among those "deplorable" conservatives.

As I see it, Joe Biden has welcomed accolades from around the world as winner of the race for President of the United States. He has given speeches outlining his new policies and named a few cabinet members. He also failed to thank President Trump for his efforts during the past four years in office. Not very gracious for a self-styled President Elect.

Meanwhile, back in the Oval Office, duly elected President, Donald Trump is busy flushing out unprecedented masses of election fraud, of a criminal and unconstitutional nature. It appears that, despite Democrat denials, the 2020 election is rife with fraud. Trump ballots have been stolen and dumped out. Biden ballots have been manufactured and dumped in. Republican oversight demanded by law has been obviously denied, with counting room windows and doors covered and locked. Sworn affidavits of the above fraudulent activity are coming in by the hundreds.

But the single greatest example of wholesale ballot fraud has been discovered in the manipulated voting machine itself. This appears to be a longstanding, cryptic plan to guarantee a Biden win. I'm surprised and a little troubled that this information has been so slowly released by the media because the problem is so systemic, involving massive numbers of Biden ballots appearing and Trump votes disappearing. This is how hundreds of thousands of Trump votes vanished almost magically overnight.

But Joe Biden moves boldly along. "President-elect" Joe Biden dismissed President Donald Trump's refusal to concede, noting Biden's team has already begun the transition process. This is the nub of what I foresee as one of the most embarrassing events in human history for the proclaimed new "president elect." Just suppose that, after framing his new foreign policies, naming his cabinet, now dressed in his inauguration tux, his Obama-awarded Presidential Medal of Freedom (highest civilian honor in the U.S., festooned upon his chest) - then notice arrives from the Justice Department informing him that he is still only Mr. Sleepy Joe. All fraudulent votes have been struck from the final tally leaving Donald J. Trump in office. At this point "President Elect" Biden is seen on the podium butt naked - the proverbial president has no clothes. But he can keep his medal.

The result here may be more than a dream. The uncovering of the plot to dethrone Trump has just begun. The question is, how fast can the evidence be produced, presented, and judged? Here are some facts:

The voting machines in question are manufactured by a company called Dominion Voting Systems. "Along with controlling roughly one-third of the voting machine market, Dominion has contracts in all of the key swing states where Trump’s campaign team is mounting legal challenges, plus Nevada and Arizona."

"Former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell recently raised alarms over Dominion’s ties to the Democratic Party. Powell pointed out that Nadeam Elshami, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) former chief of staff, became a lobbyist for Dominion last year. Richard Blum, Senator Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) husband, is also a significant shareholder in the company. During an interview, Powell said no fewer than 450,000 ballots have been identified in key states with only a mark for Biden and no other down-ballot candidate."

As usual, Republicans are slow to attack this problem. The evidence has to be pried from Democratic Party affiliations and presented to the Justice Department. Time is of the essence. For 172 million conservatives who voted for Trump, there is still hope. Democratic fraud should clearly determine Trump's reelection.

 

A quick response to a letter from Kelly Scoles:

Thanks for the note, Kelly. I can agree with most of your concerns but disagree with many suggested solutions. I truly hope there is no voter fraud but experience tells me to beware the count in Pennsylvania.

********

I'm tired! Stayed up too long last night after I saw FOX call Arizona for Biden, with nearly a million votes as yet uncounted. Then several important states were not called despite the fact they were strongly for Trump. An official working for the company that does the voter computing for FOX came out and provided a complicated (if unsatisfactory) explanation. Things not much better this AM.

Even though Biden has finally come out of his cellar with a big smile, without his usual double mask, his boast of effortlessly winning the election, I hope proves to be delusional. Absent serious cheating President Trump has been reelected. If not, count on quickly experiencing the great American demise.

For starters, all of the traitorous scoundrels who attempted a presidential coup during the past four years will go unpunished. The traitors at the CIA, FBI, NSA, DIA, will escape justice. Mega liars like little Adam Schiff will also escape the lash he so justly deserves. In short, America's justice system will wear an indelible mark of infamy, never to be trusted again.

The numerous good things that Trump has accomplished during the past four years will be undone, such as the extraordinary treaties of peace in the Middle East between Israel and an increasing number of Arab countries. Also historically deep tax cuts will disappear. Just too many accomplishments to list here.

Above all, America, without a Trump second term, will be severely diminished, morally, and distrusted internationally. Abortion mills will grind away without reserve. China will also dominate us because Joe Biden is so completely compromised by his criminal family financial dealings in that communist country. U.S. business will once again flock to China, creating new American rust belts and destabilizing our economy.

And, the Biden Family Crime syndicate would never see a Grand Jury.

But, I pray we can avoid this threatened disaster. I believe President Trump will be reelected. He is a true patriot with an historically brilliant list of solid accomplishments.

 

This is the last edition of the Gazette before Election Day. I think it was Mark Twain who said, "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics." Polling statistics come quickly to mind today, mostly those telling us that Joe Biden has a 90 percent chance of winning. But I would tell Joe not to order the fireworks just yet.

The embarrassing polls of 2016 also come to mind when I hear these things. and I fear the outcome of another such debacle. The entire Democratic Party apparatus suffered such an apoplectic shock that year from which it has never recovered - even after 4-years! My fears lie in thinking Democratic Party mass hysteria could happen all over again.

It seems like every manifestation of American civilization (except FOX News) has combined to crush President Trump's chances of winning. Nothing of this magnitude has ever happened before. Both national and international forces have combined to destroy the last, best hope of Democracy in America - Donald J. Trump's leadership.

I do not exaggerate; it is easily demonstrated.

At home we see the Democratic Party, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, CNN, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, NPR, etc. all attacking Trump with extraordinary bias. Ninety two percent of this "news" has been officially analyzed as negative Trump coverage. Even Matt Drudge, with his popular DRUDGE REPORT, a strong supporter of Trump in the 2016 election, has turned against him.

Communist China is playing a strong part in efforts to defeat Trump with its multi-faceted ownership in the above companies. In fact, all of the communications, except DRUDGE, are compromised by communist Chinese ownership - they are not American companies as historically understood.

Even Catholic Church members (especially the Vatican) are Biden-Harris supporters. This, despite the fact that the Biden-Harris cabal pushes abortion to the limit, while Church teaching condemns abortion as dogma.

To anyone paying attention to the Catholic Church's hierarchy this is not surprising. On the other hand, the vast majority of faithful Catholics are ignorant of this fatal corruption. The Church is now totally compromised by the Chinese Communist Party's $3 billion annual bribe to the present Pope, which has betrayed the Church in China - a complete sellout.

With these poisonous globalist-Marxist groups activated against a Trump reelection, it's no wonder the Never-Trump pollsters are hyperventilating with anticipation. It's like watching the attack of the Dark Lords' Orcs in Lord of the Rings. From fiction to alarming facts, the forces lined up against Trump are pure evil, anti-Christian, anti-democracy, and completely un-American. They are determined to change our country. From the financially corrupt predators, homosexual bishops with their heretical Pope Francis on the take, to corrupt media and BLM anarchists, the stage is designed for election chaos. Whether Biden wins or loses, the dark forces of Marxist globalism have been invited to cause confusion, hatred, and violence. It's what they do and have always done.

So, I am greatly encouraged to see those exuberant crowds standing in line for hours to squeeze into the Trump rallies. This is an election which will either successfully defend traditional American Judeo-Christian mores and values or surrender to the dark side of communism and spiritual subversion, of abortion, same-sex "marriage", and military weakness.

An obvious example of these enemies of freedom and democracy is the blatant cover-up by our news media of outrageous corruption in the Joe Biden family's dealings with China, and a dozen other foreign nations. Here we see one corrupt Never-Trump organization assisting another. With only a week to Election Day, and such early voting, it's too late for Americans to learn of this gigantic, long-running, billion-dollar Biden family conspiracy - which is confirmed!

I've run on too long. My prediction - President Trump will be reelected, impressively - due to a massive prayer tsunami. Unless, of course, Almighty God will call a time-out for un-Christian-like conduct.

You Catholics out there, remember - a vote for Joe Biden is a vote for more abortion.

 

A response to a letter from Kelly Scoles:

Hi again, Kelly:

I have to say your letter characterizing Judge Amy Coney Barrett as "...a justice who knows '"nuthin' 'bout nuthin." is a little unfair. After all, she graduated summa cum laude from Notre Dame, and her dean thinks well of her: "Marcus Cole, the law school’s dean, described Barrett as an “absolutely brilliant legal scholar and jurist. She is also one of the most popular teachers we have ever had here at Notre Dame Law School.”

And on a personal note, Cole said Barrett “is one of the most thoughtful, open-minded, considerate and kind people I have ever met. She lives a life of humility and grace, devoted to her family and community. Judge Barrett has served our nation with true distinction from the bench and would continue to do so if she were confirmed to serve on our nation’s highest court.”

Frankly, after observing the antics of Supreme Court Justices for the last 50 years, Amy Coney Barrett is nothing short of a judicial benediction. (Just a little jolt).

About those questions that she "couldn't answer". She, and every other nominee to the court must follow the "case or controversy rule": The Supreme Court first considered Article III's "case or controversy" limitation on the judicial power when President George Washington forwarded to the Court a request for guidance as to how best to maintain neutrality during an outbreak of hostilities between England and France,... Chief Justice Jay responded by informing the President that the Court was without power to help (the President had said he would be "much relieved" if the Court answered his questions). Jay said that the Constitution authorized the Court to interpret the law only in the context of a real case or controversy--it had no power to render an advisory opinion about the law."

No, I didn't remember this case, had to look it up. (Burned through a lot of words here.)

You mock Judge Barrett's "towering IQ"? But one doesn't come away with a summa by being dumb. One of her deans also commented that Barrett was "...the most brilliant student he had ever taught."

As for "originalism", a great book has just come out: "The Essential Scalia" on the Constitution, the Courts, and the Rule of Law." I was stunned to see the foreword was written by Justice Elena Kagan! Oh well, Justice Scalia was also a close personal friend of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I guess opposites can attract each other personally, and repel, professionally.

The word just stands for "original meaning", it's "not an attempt to get inside James Madison's head. Scalia is simply saying that, in a democracy, the standard of interpretation should be what the people who voted for the Constitution and its amendments understood the texts to mean when they voted." The Constitution should not "live" virus-like, to be shaped like nutty putty by liberal Justices to mean whatever they wish it to mean. That makes sense to me, like Scalia himself. And Barrett was Scalia's clerk. But it is really not a "brain-dead view" of interpreting our Constitution. It reins in constitutional cowboys who dream of halting climate change by their judicial fiat.

This issue has prompted a memory from years ago when I was invited to hear Justice Scalia speak at Thomas Aquinas Collage by a dear friend, the late Joseph Kern - may he rest in peace. It was a memorable honor.

As to "Kavanaughing" Barrett, Senator Mazie Hirono came close enough with her swinish sexual interrogation. What a pig she is. How can Hawaii be proud of that? And there was that sensational, washed-out liar, Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed (falsely under oath) a fear of flying, to avoid testifying in D.C. - though she regularly flies all over the world for fun. Like Mazie the Senator, her testimony was scurrilously mendacious, accompanied by that same offensive carnal scent.

You say "...she did not snivel and accuse the Senate Judiciary Committee of malice in their questions." Again, you allude to Justice Kavanaugh's defense of himself as "sniveling", against what is now established defamation per se? It was pure malice indeed that guided the Democratic senators during the Kavanaugh hearings - unprecedented, acidic malice.

God willing, and I think He is, Judge Amy Coney Barrett will soon be Justice Amy Coney Barrett of our Supreme Court. Welcome Justice Barrett, latest survivor of the Democratic Party acid bath confirmations. God bless you and your wonderful family.

 

Election Day is upon us, and I have neglected to keep up with City Council decisions as I used to before the China virus scattered Gazette production into three departments. I will do my best to summarize the state of the city next week.

********

A response to Mary Scoles letter:

Hi Mary, I regret that the Gazette's wheelhouse has notified me that I must keep this response to under 500 words. This challenges me like a three-legged tap dancer on ice.

Today you question President Trump's leadership ability. After watching him for four years, whether you like the results of his decisions or not, objectively, they are most impressive. As a liberal, or progressive, I would think you would find many of Trump's accomplishments praiseworthy (Good grief; I'm already past word 87).

Liberals have always wanted the U.S. to get out of foreign wars. Trump has pulled our troops out of Afghanistan, Syria, and Iraq, except for a remnant for protecting against a resurgence of terrorist groups. This, often against strong military objection.

He cut through the red tape and confounding regulations which have bedeviled our economy for decades.

He has dealt strongly with China, which habitually lies, steals, and cheats America, threatens us militarily, and has assaulted us with a militarized Covid-19 virus. Joe Biden and family has, instead, been paid billions from China, et al, in dark money deals. How would Biden be expected to behave as president with China?

Trump has led the country in real terms by building a defensive wall on our southern border.

Trump has reacted with great speed in responding to the Chinese virus, providing respirators, masks, gowns, and special emergency facilities.

But I think too many people already forget the financial miracle Trump achieved in the three years before the Chinese virus attack. This was the greatest economic achievement in U.S. history! If reelected, he will do it again.

How about Trump's leadership in fixing prescription drug prices: (Bloomberg) — "President Donald Trump announced new policies Friday aimed at lowering prescription drug prices under Medicare by linking them to rates paid in other countries and allowing Americans to buy prescription medication imported from Canada." Speaking for myself, this has worked dramatically.

How about his leadership in overhauling veteran's care? Again, dramatic success. What about his revolutionary rehab of our military - and pay increases?

How about his decisive action in destroying 50 Syrian military facilities after President Bashar al-Assad murdered thousands of his own men, women, and children with poison gas? Even though Trump had been in office less than two years, our enemies then knew he was a serious leader.

I'm down to word 451. Can't possibly enumerate all of Trump's achievements, appointing outstanding judges and justices, protecting Constitutional rights - being a manly leader guiding an effete Congress.

I predict the wall will be finished before Joe Biden is able to lead Boy Scouts in the Pledge of Allegiance.

 

Response to Kelly Scoles' letter:
"The lady doth protest too much, methinks" Sorry for hijacking the Bard's words, but you really are too worked-up over someone else's (President Trump's) honest difference of opinion. He relies upon his best scientists and you think your scientists are better. He respects masks when he thinks they are important and has ignored them when he believes they are unnecessary.

He takes reasonable risks, as true leaders do, but is not intimidated by public criticism. He doesn't sequester in his basement for months on end, refusing to take questions, like Joe Biden. And, Isaac Asimov (brilliant author, but no physician) also said: " People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do." Just kidding, a little, Kelly. But, from what I've seen these past four years, Trump knows a lot more than anyone else on deck about leadership. I pray for his, and his family's, swift and complete recovery.

*****

I have to say that watching the American political and social scene these days leaves me depressed. It's not an exaggeration to believe that a national conflagration is facing us. The traditional Constitutional force of our Judeo-Christian culture is defending against the multi-billion-dollar juggernaut of globalist-communist, (and profoundly anti-Judeo-Christian) revolutionaries. We may grow tired of hearing that this election is the most important since the Civil War, but it's true. If Biden and Harris win, the toilets on the ship of state will flood the nation with radical Democratic Party excrement.

Joe Biden is perhaps the most corrupt member in the history of the U.S. Senate - but it has been covered-up by the media for decades, only now being revealed. Kamala Harris, recognized by both parties as the most radically liberal member of the Senate, would prove to be Biden's pet puff adder if he wins, striking at any conservative threat - like the Little Sisters of the Poor.

But I take solace in anticipating the appointment of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to our Supreme Court. She is a truly remarkable woman. "Judge Barrett is an originalist in the mold of her late mentor Justice Antonin Scalia." A conservative in temperament, Judge Barrett has distinguished herself as a professor and practitioner of the law, now serving on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals: a Catholic, pro-life, and a mother of 7 children, two adopted. It's no overstatement to say she is a diametric opposite of the late, aggressively pro-abortion, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Judge Barrett is a breath of fresh air. She will assist the Court in construing our Constitution by paying attention to the actual intent of the words, as given us by the Founders - instead of abetting liberal members creating novel concepts and unsupported laws, such as so-called "same-sex marriage", and unlimited abortion.

God bless Judge Barrett and family. Now more babies may be able to take that first breath and enjoy the sunshine with the rest of us!

 

In Memoriam:

I lost a very good friend on Sunday, September 6th, Norbert (Bert) Castel de Oro. He was husband to an equally good friend, his wife Wanda.

I often think back to the day I suffered a serious injury which left me utterly helpless and remember Bert and Wanda. Both were responsible for my immediate care. I couldn't walk, I couldn't stand; they came to my rescue then and through the following days and months, at great personal inconvenience.

Bert and Wanda were true Good Samaritans (Gospel of Luke) and responsible for sustaining me through a lengthy recovery. At great effort they moved my wheelchair (in the rain), transported me to hospital, and supplied my food. Their efforts on my behalf were far and away beyond the call of duty. It is that assistance, when I was in great need, that I will forever remember.

Bert was an essential part of that mission of mercy and I continue to thank him through a perpetual stream of prayer. For more than twenty years I was privileged to have Bert as my friend and counselor. With his bevy of happy grandchildren, he enriched my life.

Thank you, my friend.

May you rest in peace with all the faithful departed.

******************************************

A brief response to Mary Scoles' letter:

Hi Mary,

About the handling of the Breonna Taylor case, and boyfriend Kenneth Walker:

In short, police were attempting to serve a warrant for the arrest of a former Breonna boyfriend, a drug dealer who left his product at this address in the recent past. The facts in this case were erroneously reported by the media long after corrections were available. This was not a no-knock warrant service (as reported)- the police identified themselves, and a witness testified to that fact. The warrant was issued for her prior boyfriend, but unbeknownst to the police, she had switched boyfriends. Boyfriend Walker fired at police, hitting two officers. As standard operating procedures demand, police returned fire, accidently killing Breonna in that dark room.

The Grand Jury indicted, and the DA dropped charges (no doubt in fear of riots). How do you know that the "police did not effectively identify themselves”? one witness heard the demand. I do, however, fault the police in this case for insufficient firearms training; 16 shots into the upper apartments? If so, that's bad. But would you expect the police to run away after being fired upon? The usual rule is for police to fire until the threat is eliminated. In this case I guess the threat ended when Walker finally stopped shooting at the police - too late for Breonna.

Mary, we don't "allow" guns to everybody so they "feel safe"..." Gun ownership is not a privilege to be trifled with - it's a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT, God given, which cannot be infringed upon! Big difference. It's your right, why not acknowledge and be thankful for it? Millions continue to sacrifice their lives to assure its preservation.

You say "...violence is almost never the correct response." Well, it certainly wasn't the correct response in boyfriend Walker's case. He was the proximate cause of Breonna's death. Would your assessment apply in a rape threat if the victim could resist, with a firearm?

Takeaway: Had boyfriend Walker not fired those reckless first shots this incident would never have happened. Am I to conclude from your statements that further million-dollar riots and mayhem are justified following Breonna's tragic death?

 

A response to Kelly Scoles letter:

Hi Kelly,

I have to condense my responses for reasons of time and space. You insist on pouncing on two of my last columns, challenging something like 15 issues. I'll give it a try.

The masks. The whole idea is debated among the world's most eminent experts, some saying they're useless, even harmful, others saying they are essential. Who's right?

Trump "not a politician?" He came into public service intentionally to disrupt the political status quo, not to spend 47-years at the public trough, like Joe Biden.

Doesn't represent "all of the citizens". He does so, by refocusing on Constitutional restraints, to protect our traditional rights and duties (with new court) as that document dictates, and to defeat communist-oriented traitors and anarchists like Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and their ilk.

Kelly, you think my reference to Civil War is wild exaggeration, like most liberals. Black Lives Matter, Antifa, et al, are the militant wings of today's Democratic Party, and they brag about destroying democratic America. Have you gone to their websites? Have you been watching the flaming anarchy taking place in so many Democratic-ruled cities and counties throughout our nation? About two billion dollars-worth of destruction is the result so far. This is a professional insurrection - paid for by numerous billionaires (see last week's names) and a long list of non-profit corporations (Ford Foundation gave 100-million dollars to BLM, George Soros, 30-million, Nike promises $40 million... to social justice organizations that support the Black Lives Matter movement.). Fueling this 6-month series of non-stop conflagrations are some of the largest and most powerful corporations in the world. These BLM groups boldly proclaim their anti-American mission; read about it!

The primary purpose of our Second Amendment (logically coming right after the First) is to enable the people to defend themselves against tyranny, which comes from government.

You are apparently ignorant about the chaos in our streets, the toppling of monuments and statues, the burning of businesses, churches, homes, the shooting of our civilian population, the robbing, raping and looting - and threats of more. You must have been watching CBS, NBC, ABC MSNBC - they don't cover these issues. Switch to FOX, they do. And, since so many District Attorneys have been seated by billionaires like Soros for the purpose of not prosecuting these felons, the fiery circus continues.

If a mob crashes into your property with arson or murder in mind, you have not only the right to shoot those felons, you have a duty to protect family, friends, and property. Check the film of Chicago Mayor Daily during the 1968 riots. Hear him again: "Mayor Daley gave police the authority to shoot to kill any arsonist or anyone with a Molotov cocktail in his hand ... and ... to shoot to maim or cripple anyone looting any stores in our city."

Kelly, it's the Democrats and their anarchist friends who are causing this lethal chaos - not Republicans! They proudly admit to supporting BLM and Antifa (contributing financially). Law-abiding Americans have the right to defend themselves: "In the 2008 case District of Columbia v. Heller, the Supreme Court held that the "Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home."

Wish I had more time. My advice to law-abiding American citizens, as we encounter the anarchist wing of the Democratic Party, is to be thoroughly knowledgeable about firearms and their safe, proficient and legal use. And if threatened, as is happening in New York, Oakland, Sacramento, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Birmingham, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Kenosha (could add 50 more), exercise your God-given, inalienable, Constitutional right to keep and bear arms for self defense - unapologetically.

Americans who know their heritage and the bloody price paid for it should react to BLM's treasonous rebellion today as quickly as the Minuteman reached for his flintlock above the cabin hearth at hearing "The British are coming!"

 

I might as well start with good news since there seems so little going around these days.

President Trump orchestrated the signing of historic diplomatic pacts between "Israel and two Gulf Arab states at a White House ceremony that President Donald Trump declared will mark the “dawn of a new Middle East,” casting himself as an international peacemaker at the height of his reelection campaign.” The bilateral agreements "formalize the normalization of Israel's relations with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in line with their common opposition to Iran."

I'm waiting to see how the American press attempts to diminish Trump's truly historic achievement. It will be hard to do, but our "drive-by" media will find a way. Amongst the staggering number of achievements Trump can claim during the past 4 years, this is certainly the greatest. He deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for this one. But watch our infamous Democratic media grind their teeth at talk of such a possibility. They already have him "casting himself" as a peacemaker. Let's pray that this is truly "The dawn of a new Middle East" and give credit where it's due.

*******

Our country is heading for another truly violent Civil War triggered by the planned new massive Universal Mail-In Voting. This is not the same as Absentee Voting, where the voter has requested his ballot because he would otherwise be unable to vote. As the President has warned: this massive, indiscriminate sort of mailing "...will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???”

This "Universal mail-In Voting would scatter 80 million ballots like confetti into every address box in the nation, regardless of who might be the resident, real, dead, moved, or vacant. This would promote a massive cloud of confusion, and fraud of every conceivable kind. This is exactly what the Democratic Party admits it intends to do. If this massive confusion can remain beyond election day eventually the House will choose the president, maybe "crazy" Nancy Pelosi with Kamala Harris at her side.

This is a well planned scheme by the Democratic Party and (according to reports by TV commentator Laura Ingraham) hundreds of liberal billionaires are funding the effort. For example: Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Mark Zuckerberg, Michael Bloomberg, Larry Page, George Soros, George Lucas, Jack Dorsey, Howard Schultz, Oprah Winfrey, Tom Steyer, et al. Billionaires are overwhelmingly liberal Democrats. Today, they are what I call Deus Ex Machina ("god from the machine" an ancient device for moving things on stage). It works here because these guys are the malignant parts of the Democratic machine. They, with the media, Wall Street, Antifa, and Black Lives Matter, are out to steal the election from Donald Trump and destroy America as we have known her for 244 years. These are the enemies of our nation. These are today's self-styled demigods.

That's a tremendous amount of money for Republicans to fight off. This is why "crazy" Nancy and three-time loser Hillary Clinton command Biden never to concede the election, even after a landslide win for Trump. They count on Massive Universal Mail-In voting to cause such election chaos it could take months to reach an official tally - enough time for the Democratic House of Representatives to vote their favorite into office. That may also be when our Second Amendment might direct some of the 393 million civilian-owned firearms into action - the primary reason for our Second Amendment.

This is a looming reality, never before seen in America. The world watches, uneasily.

 

An answer to Mary Scoles' letter.

Hello again Mary,
As I read through the first half of your letter I was haunted by the feeling that I had heard the words before. Then you refreshed my memory, always appreciated these days. You were reciting, what should be recognized as the most famous words in American history, Lincoln's Gettysburg address at the (now) Arlington National Cemetery.

Many in the audience that day (especially the press) were disappointed with Lincoln's short address - three minutes - while admiring the two-hour speech by 40-year career professor, diplomat, and statesman, Edward Everette at that same time. Lincoln's speech was composed of only 10 sentences and 272 words. Of course Lincoln is an acknowledged genius. No other politician, or president, since his time can approach his greatness, so attempts at comparison are futile.

Your attempt to do so, therefore, is futile. I fully admit that the statement made by Trump concerning Senator John McCain not being a "war hero" was the worst of several disparaging remarks he has made in the heat of political battle. Trump and McCain hated each other, so lethal sparks often flew.

As for (former Trump chief of staff) Gen. John Kelly's alleged Trump comment while on a visit to the grave of Kelly's son, killed in Afghanistan in 2010, it is so incomprehensibly scurrilous I have to believe it is a lie. Condensed grief can create a lie, even in a hero like Kelly. Several of Trump's former advisors and Cabinet members bear white-hot hostility for the President. That they would turn on their former Commander in Chief speaks of political instability. Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman, former NSC aide and impeachment witness, is another impassioned turncoat who savored betrayal. You will not find this sort of villainy in America's past, except for traitors such as Benedict Arnold (erstwhile war hero). True heroes, all.

McCain stands as a singular American military hero, and I greatly admire him for that. Among many heroic American military men captured, tortured, and held under inhumane conditions in Vietnam for years, he endured. Within this list of heroes are Everett Alvarez Jr. USN pilot, "the first American airman shot down over North Vietnam and the second longest held prisoner of war in American history," and Floyd Thompson, USA Special Forces, POW for nearly nine years, and the longest held prisoner of war in American history.

So John McCain was in good company. To search the list of our Vietnam POWs is to be proud and thankful. Those were McCain's most distinguished military years. He returned as a Republican politician, espousing left-leaning ideas. For example, He supported LGBT rights, and gun regulations. McCain's refusal to support Trump's presidency sparked true rancor between them. McCain's rejection of Trump was never forgiven, nor regretted by McCain. They hated each other. As a military man I admired McCain. As a showboating Republican Senator (a RINO) I hated his guts.

Mary, like most liberals, you immediately assume every slander against Trump is truthful, even in the face of the strongest refutation by eye witnesses. The WW1 Belleau Wood trip cancellation is a good example: he didn't go because "He was worried that the wind and rain would ruin his hair."This absurd statement was a fruitless attempt to embarrass the President. This should be ignored as food only for the clucking credulous.

Also, much is always made of comments intended by the President to be humorous or hyperbolic. After all, he is the leader of his party and head cheerleader for democracy and free enterprise. He struggles to advance the security, health, and economic energy of our nation, against the army of lugubrious Democrats.

Bottom line: I dislike in the extreme a few of the President's comments, but understand he is a businessman not a politician, and someone who has suffered 4 years of scathing Leftist defamation - personally, politically, and against his family members. Had Andrew Jackson been in his place the House and Senate would have been busy recovering the bodies. So, I can't fault him for "punching back."

Likewise, I forgive his exaggerations, counter-fire, and occasional ineptitude, while I admire his courage, honesty, and persistence in the pursuit of Truth, Justice, and the American Way. (Plagiarism intended).

 

My thanks to Pastor Leslie R. Lanier, Wayfarer's Chapel Lutheran Church, for his letter of support for the former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz. Holtz has characterized the Biden-Harris Democratic ticket as "..the most radically pro-abortion campaign in history. They and other politicians are Catholics in name only."

Both Pastor Lanier and Coach Holtz are correct. As a Catholic myself, with 16-years of education in the faith, the Pastor's comments on the Biden-Harris ticket are absolutely correct. Joe Biden is only one of a host of politicians who identify themselves as both Roman Catholics and members of the Democratic Party. A quick online search for Catholics in Congress produced this result: "Of the 96 newly elected members of Congress, 78 are Christian, including 28 who are Catholic. Overall, there are 141 Catholics in the House, or 32 percent of the chamber; 22 of the 100 U.S. senators are Catholic."

As Pastor Lanier points out, however, saying is one thing, doing is another. Saying you're a surgeon does not make you one; and holding yourself out as such without proper authority makes you a fraud. In short, one can be Catholic (or Christian) only to the extent one believes and practices the tenets of the faith. To the extent we disbelieve any of the foundational tenets or teachings of the faith, we become apostates or heretics and are no longer part of that body.

And here is the rub for all Democratic Party "Catholics": the principals of that Party are in absolute contradiction to Roman Catholic articles of faith. One cannot be a member of that Party without offending against the basic commandments of the faith. When Catholic members of the Democrat Party vote, for example, to approve abortions, they (by the Church's commandments) commit what is called a "mortal sin" immediately cutting themselves off by self-excommunication (Latae sententiae - a Latin phrase, meaning "sentence (already) passed"). No formal declaration is needed. Therefore, attempting to cure the problem with novel excuses, without repentance, is futile - regardless of what member of the episcopacy may seek to overrule the result. Catholicism is not a smorgasbord religion where you may take this article of faith and reject another. However, due to the extraordinary corruption in the Catholic hierarchy today, such attempts to ignore even the most blasphemous changes to traditional teachings are frequent.

For those who may be angry about these comments, please remember I'm speaking only about my religious faith, Roman Catholicism. I respect your own views concerning your own religious beliefs.

For corroboration of my conclusions here I strongly recommend Church Militant, The Vortex, by Michael Voris (churchmilitant.com), especially his most recent two short videos (Sept. 1, "Arrest the Democrats", and Sept. 2, "Overthrowing America"). His organization is dedicated to exposing and cleansing the Church of the infestation of homo-predator bishops and their minions. It's a remarkably transparent, no-holds-barred organization created to get to the truth in all matters of sexual predation, financial fraud, and cover-up in the Church. It is utterly factual.

Bottom line: One cannot be both a faithful Catholic and a member of today's Democratic Party, nor support Joe Biden or Kamala Harris, with a clear conscience, because they both approve of abortion. A faithful Catholic is obligated, among other things, to recognize that abortion is murder at any stage of fetal development. Again, one cannot condone abortion and be a Roman Catholic.

********

To Kelly Scoles. Sorry again, no time or space. Will try to answer your letter online. May create a new page for this purpose in future.

 

It is sad to hear that former Liberty University President, Jerry Falwell Jr. is involved in a sexual scandal which has shaken the school his father founded in 1971, and forced his resignation. But he will not be leaving without the $10.5 million contracted with the university.

Sexual misbehavior, particularly in the U.S., has caused, and is causing, unparalleled corruption in the nation’s culture. It is a powerful sort of social crud which contaminates the nation's institutions from within.

It is this type of perversion which the Soviet Union introduced into the Catholic Church shortly after WWII. The plan was to destroy Christianity from within, more specifically, the Catholic Church. This was testified to on multiple occasions by Bella Dodd, a high-ranking member of the U.S. Communist Party. She herself claims to have orchestrated the placement of 1,100 [homo-predator] men into U.S. seminaries. Regardless of classification, the issue is sexual perversion. Michael Voris of Church Militant, has the corroborating details available at his website, as well as others.

"A key component of the [communist] plans involved infiltrating seminaries with young men who would work to undermine the Church's teaching in the area of morality." It has proved to be spectacularly successful, the main cause of the wholesale corruption of today's Catholic episcopate - morally, monetarily, politically, and of course, pastorally. The fish usually rots from the head first. In this case it began at the bottom, with seminarians, who ingratiated themselves up the stairs of ecclesial hierarchy.

What has this to do with Jerry Falwell Jr.'s recent fall? He's just the latest part of the oncoming avalanche of Christian moral apostasy. It is closely attached to the political far Left (Democratic Party) which is attached to revolutionary groups such as Black Lives Matter, Antifa, etc, which are paid by (in the church's case) Communist China, George Soros, and many large commercial companies and non-profit organizations. In total, we are talking about billions of dollars. The activists who are burning down America, looting and killing innocent citizens, are Marxist, communist, and socialist by design.

As with Falwell, it's all associated with the corruption of our society. Look at what has happened to so many executives in Hollywood and entertainment, men and women; TV personalities, heads of huge corporations, Boy Scouts and other community groups. Money is usually part of the social collapse seen in the sexual revolution. But at the center of the problem is the destruction of the traditional family, which is the heart of our western civilization. Divorce, leaving children without a two-parent family to nurture them, and pornography, the acid in the development of normal intellectual stability, all accelerate the corruption and collapse of our culture.

The difficult thing here is to show how all this is happening and how it is all connected; the Communist Chinese who bribe the Pope, who blesses with investiture a new homo-predator bishop, who then is installed in his new diocese mansion, who then promotes heretical sexual groups such as LGBTQ, same sex marriage, abortion, ad infinitum. All this feeds the political revolution with the likes of Antifa, Black Lives Matter (a Marxist group), and all of which violently oppose democracy and President Donald Trump.

The end game for this lethal, pestiferous juggernaut, of which Jerry Falwell is a small if similarly disgusting part, is the destruction of America as it was created by the Founding Fathers, and blessed by Almighty God.

Yeah, I know, it's a lot to believe, but so is the reality of evil in a world made "very good". A vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will speed our demise as a free Judeo-Christian country.

 

Running late again but must quickly respond to Kelly Scoles' letter first.

Kelly, after so many years writing this column I find it most aggravating having to respond to questions and statements the answers to which are patently obvious. It's not the complicated issues that bother me - it's the simple ones with clearly common-sense answers which keep presenting themselves as problematic. Fake issues presented as serious questions.
I not only watched the entire Kavanaugh hearing, but to refresh my memory of Kamala Harris and her witchery I replay portions of the video from time to time.

To the average reasonable person, using traditional Judeo-Christian ethics and common sense, Kamala Harris' questioning of D.C. Circuit Court Judge Kavanaugh was an example of clearly disgusting stagecraft, a spectacle designed for self-aggrandizement. The whole point of her questioning was to falsely impute to Kavanaugh outrageous defamatory allegations of sexual crimes; this all staged on the floor of our United States Senate! This was a conspiracy to destroy the life and legacy of a most revered judge, known for living an exemplary Christian life, with wife, children, and professional associates. A perfect target for Democrats.

You claim it was "a legitimate issue in the nomination process..." Hogwash! You find my description of Harris to be "vile"? Which is to say morally bad. It is indeed rough, but a true characterization of Harris, as a person and as a politician. There can be no excuse for her abominable treatment of Judge Kavanaugh, and the same goes for the entire Democratic side of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which left an indelible stain of judicial injustice in that governmental body. It remains unforgettable - and unforgiveable.

I realize that many Americans today live in a so-called "woke" cocoon, impervious to clear thinking. Let's not forget, however, that the allegations pushed by this Star Chamber alleged against Kavanaugh were entirely specious, utterly false, and the presumption of innocence seemed forgotten. To make matters worse here, these false allegations were concocted entirely for political purposes - something anathema to our Constitution.

Right-thinking American citizens should always remember this case as a prime example of corrupt judicial process - and the political party that perpetrated this travesty.

Kelly, you say, in defense of Harris, "Even if she were making a comment about his past sexual behavior, that would not make her a "political slut,".... His "past sexual behavior"? What behavior are you referring to? Have you concluded with his guilt? He is not a rapist or abuser of women, as pathetically false accusations surfaced from the likes of weird and incredible female ghosts of high school past. Kavanaugh would certainly have won treble damages in a lawsuit for defamation per se. That, however, would have been just too inappropriate under the circumstances.

So, despite the destruction done to his reputation by Democratic political pimps, and their political slut, Kavanaugh was seated on our Supreme Court as its newest Justice. God bless and prosper him.

By the way, Justice Kavanaugh is also a devout Catholic. Harris is known to be devoutly anti-Catholic. We will soon learn much more about Kamala Harris and her political proclivities.

Sorry, Kelly, I got carried away. Absentee ballots are fine if they are requested. Mass mailings are an invitation to fraudulent voting, they are bad. The postal service has frozen all reorganization plans until after the election.

Be well.

 

Truly at the last minute, I received a thoughtful email from Mary Scoles commenting on last week's Realities - school closures.

Mary, two observations only: Teachers' unions are a notorious part of the Democratic Party movement to oust President Trump. Emphasis on the word "notorious". Secondly, and sadly, even science has been politicized in this pandemic war. A central part of the controversy is the issue of keeping schools open - or closed. Closed schools are catastrophic for our children - say the most experienced experts. It is more likely that a child is struck by lightning than to die from COVID-19.

DRUDGE ran a piece today that warns Trump not to "demean or insult" Kamala Harris because this will anger women voters "who already overwhelmingly support Democrats."

So, allow me to sit-in for Trump, because her nasty public persona deserves a good editorial shagging.

Well, maybe "infamous" would be a better word to describe the Senate's most insolent radical. Harris's personality was indelibly etched on my memory during the Judge Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, when Sen. Kamala Harris asks Judge Kavanaugh: "Can you think of any laws that give government the power to make decisions about the male body?" This related to defamatory rumors circulated by Democrats about Kavaanaugh's high school days. Only a political slut would have behaved in this way.
Harris's impudence in her questioning of one of this country's most eminent and well-loved jurists was simply astonishing - in the eyes of normal civil society. But I'm not astonished that she is now chosen to provide youth and stability to Biden's age and uncertainty. It's a match reminiscent of her salad days in California, when then Democratic speaker of the California State Assembly, Willie Brown, placed her on the California Medical Assistance Commission in 1994 (at $120,000 in today's money). The commission met twice a month."Harris began dating [Brown]in the spring of 1994". Brown was 30-years her senior. This exemplifies the history of her political and ethical education.

Harris is a lean and hungry politician. Joe Biden doesn't stand a chance in what would be his efforts to actually undertake the duties of Commander in Chief of the United States. The Leftist buzzards of the Democratic Party would eat his lunch - and then some.

Harris' policies show her to be the most extreme Leftist in a bevy of radical Democratic leftists. Conservatives should know Harris is a devout facilitator of abortion at all stages. She has shown little mercy for petty criminals: "In the Democratic primary debates, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said of Harris, "She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana." True. She's a communist at heart seeking single pay health care. She is anti-police, supporting Black Lives Matter terrorism: "... we must ask ourselves: how many more times must our families and our communities be put through the trauma of an unarmed Black man or woman’s killing at the hands of the very police who are sworn to protect and serve them?" (note: Kamala is not African American.) I can find no evidence that Kamala Harris disagrees with any of the most extreme edicts of the Black Lives Matter or Antifa organizations.

Time Out. I'm over 500 words.

 

It's time to open our schools! This is a summary of why we should do so.

"There’s nearly universal agreement that widespread, long-lasting school closures harm children. Not only do children fall behind in learning, but isolation harms their mental health and leaves some vulnerable to abuse and neglect. But during this pandemic, does that harm outweigh the risk—to children, school staff, families, and the community at large—of keeping schools open and giving the coronavirus more chances to spread?" Posted in: doi:10.1126/science.abc9565

The answer: THERE IS NO SUBSTANTIAL RISK. "UNESCO estimated in March that 91.3% of the world’s students were out of school. But Swedes under 16 were not among them." And while Sweden reports a high death rate in nursing homes, studies do not show that school children had much if anything to do with that.

"While Sweden’s no-lockdown approach was shunned by its Nordic neighbors, health officials in Denmark and Norway came around to Sweden's stance on schools. Both made reopening them one of their first steps out of lockdown. Neither has seen a resurgence since." Most of Europe has reopened its schools with no ill effect.

Since I am certainly no expert on COVID-19 issues, I have to rely on those who are. Here are some of the most respected medical conclusions:

"Globally, according to a research review published recently in The Lancet, a leading medical journal, the number of Covid-19 deaths prevented by school closings has been vanishingly small. The same can’t be said about the closings’ educational effects, which have been devastating."

So, by all means, let's avoid the "devastating" effects of closed schools.

Time to let the sun shine in. But political shade, from the all-powerful teachers’ unions, prevents this. The unions insist upon avoiding normal face to face teaching again until there is nearly perfect protection against COVID-19 virus infection - a zero risk demand. Note to the unions - life has never worked that way. We all face a 24-7 cloud of risk every day which we acknowledge as normal to the human environment. We seek to avoid those we can, without becoming hypochondriacs. Illness is one of those risks we try to avoid. Pandemics are super risks we rightfully dread. So, when faced with a super viral pandemic we trust expert medical advice will help us stay well.

The problem today is the fact that there is no agreement in scientific opinion on how to avoid COVID-19 infection. To make matters much worse, the debate on this issue is infected with political bias. Despite the seriousness of the threat, radical Liberal factions are attempting to use the pandemic to increase the burden of social confusion on President Trump’s reelection efforts. They see this as an opportunity to act on former Chicago Mayor Rom Emanuel's advise: “Never let a crisis go to waste." This is Liberal Left permission to slow things down, to obstruct normal solutions to the problem, and, again, damage President Trump's chances at reelection.

Some U.S. schools are reopening. Others will remain shut down by order of Teacher's Unions and their fellow travelers, like California's radical Democratic governor, Gavin Newsom. California's school children will suffer significant educational and psychological damage due to union political bias, and let's say, selfishness.

I hold the teaching profession in very high esteem. It is a most noble calling - when unadulterated with political bias. Keeping schools closed is extraordinarily damaging to our children, and, with the pandemic, damaging to Trump's reelection efforts.

Online teaching for K-12 school children has proven to be a deficient substitute, especially for younger children. Children greatly miss classmates during the shutdown. Children miss school breakfast and lunch. Children face more abuse at home during the shutdown. Children are falling seriously behind their learning schedules. Children are much more susceptible to flu than to COVID-19.

It's time for teachers to accept the small risk of viral infection in the classroom and save our children from the "devastating" effects of being locked out of school.
