Pulling A Rosie Ruiz: The Risky Business of Calling American Presidential Elections

YouTube Screenshot

Being a legal analyst often makes you a killjoy at a party.  As millions broke out in celebration over the calling of the election for Joe Biden (including most of my immediate family), I watched with a mix of shared excitement and silent apprehension. It does appear that Biden won this election and his speech last night was the perfect pitch and message for a divided nation.  However, there are still legal challenges being filed in a half dozen, new affidavits containing troubling sworn allegations, and relatively close state contests. As someone who has covered presidential elections for networks going back to 2000, those challenges are like live torpedoes in the water – you do not know if one could actually hit below the water line. The issue for legal analysts is that, with the tabulations still occurring, there is little ability to judge allegations of voting irregularities.

We still do not know if there is evidence of systemic fraud or irregularities. Indeed, I am getting the feeling that the Trump campaign does not know. Thus far, the Trump legal team has not submitted hard evidence as opposed to heated allegations.

However, as millions celebrate at what they believe is the finish line, the greatest danger is a Rosie Ruiz election.

Forty years ago, Ruiz became an infamous figure when she was declared the winner of the 84th Boston Marathon in 1980 as the fastest woman. After all, she was seen crossing the finish line before any other woman. The problem was that eight days later, she was found to have crossed the finish line by way of the subway.

The difference between the Boston Marathon and the presidential election is that the latter is designed to avoid a short-cut president-elect. First there is tabulating of ballots, followed by the canvassing of ballots, and then certification of the results. Challenges can continue through the certification stage that should end on December 8th.

There is a certain Rosie Ruiz strategy that is used in elections, particularly in orchestrating a splashy finish and a victorious celebration.

That was the case in 1960 with the election of John F. Kennedy.  Many historians believe that Kennedy actually lost the race to Richard Nixon. Instead he was declared the winner with 49.80% of the popular vote.  Widespread voting fraud was reported in Illinois and Texas that put Kennedy over the top.  Much of those allegations were hashed out after the media declared Kennedy the winner and the campaign set the narrative with celebrations and transition announcements.

After Bush led in Florida by only 1,784, his campaign rushed him out for a victory lap to create the image of the presumptive president elect. Thus, when the Democrats challenged the results and filed a flurry of lawsuits demanding recounts, they were viewed as fighting to reverse the will of the voters in seeking to strike ballots. The recount led to a change of only roughly 900 votes before, 41 days later, the election was effectively ended by the Supreme Court in Bush v. Gore.

What happened next is often overlooked. Multiple studies found that Gore likely won Florida.  However, by that time, George Bush was already sworn in as the 43rd President of the United States. The point is clear.  The important thing is not whether you were in fact victorious but whether you were victorious when you passed the line of certification.

Nevertheless, Mayor Kenney was demanding a concession “just as Al Gore did.” In reality, Gore did challenge that election and forced a recount that lasted 41 days. It turned out that the recount may not have identified the true vote count.

To the credit of Joe Biden, he showed admirable restraint in claiming victory. The question is whether he will now show even greater leadership in supporting a full and open review of key state races.

For its part, the Trump legal team will have to ramp up its game. Thus far, there has been a lack of focus and discipline . . . and a notable lack of real evidence. On Friday, a challenge in federal court in Las Vegas fizzled out for lack of such evidence in front of a clearly exasperated federal judge.

In fairness to the Trump campaign, it is difficult to produce evidence if you have not been allowed access to balloting or key records. Moreover, there is some skepticism over claims that this election was effectively flawless, even in cities with long and checkered histories with voting irregularities. We have never had an election based on such massive numbers of mail-in balloting and there are obvious concerns over authentication of ballots.  The primary concern is not that tabulation workers are filling out ballots or burning ballots. Rather the concern is how mail-in ballots were sent out, authenticated, and processed.  There are many accounts of people receiving multiple ballots, groups filling out ballots on behalf of voters, and even some cases of votes filed for deceased individuals.

In truth, the current allegations are more difficult to track than those in 2000. The Florida recount was largely mechanical and obvious. You had a bizarre “Butterfly ballot” and hanging chads on punch voting cards. The 2020 election involves questions of the authentication of ballots and calibration of tabulation equipment. If such standards are set too low, there would be virtually no instances of irregularity because the threshold standards are too low.  We simply do not know and would not know until there is greater access to information.

All elections have such problems even without the use of tens of millions of mail-in ballots. The question is whether such irregularities are systemic or merely episodic. The current margins in states like Pennsylvania are not likely to be overcome by aggregating small pockets of challenged ballots.

The Democrats have sought to present recounts or judicial review, the opposite position taken in 2000. The concern is that we still have had no meaningful access to the underlying evidence and, while the odds are not high, it is still possible that challenges could find traction in the courts. If there proves to be a real problem in a key state, the massive celebrations could change in character dramatically.

Again, there is currently no evidence of systemic fraud in the election but there is ample reason to conduct reviews. Biden himself should tell the Democratic Party to support such scrutiny and transparency now that the initial tabulations are being completed. That is not easy for any politician, but it would be the ultimate presidential act by the presumptive president-elect. Biden is no Rosie Ruiz. Biden has shown a respect for the process and this was a hard fought victory. He can cross the line without mass transportive assistance. This is the way to show it.

  1. 28 states appear to have been caught using voting rigging software, CIA/Dem/Rino “Scorecard”. Interesting, hell it might be Nancy likely has lost San Fran & the dem controlled house & a Repub pickup in the Senate.

    Trump just needs to release “Everthing”, a full gov info data dump going back decades on these Traitors… the Bushes, Bidens, Clintons, John Roberts, John Durham, Comey, Brennan, Sally Yates…. etc. Let us now just sort out those who are the criminals

    Trump needs to file those claims in every state & tell the citizens it’s open season on people who are found in the wrong place doing illegal acts that they shouldn’t be doing, such as the Fascist Antifa/BLM Terrorist.

  2. Hysterical. it’s getting harder to tell all of the grifters apart. Lincoln Project, Hunter Biden, Donald Trump, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Hillary, AOC, Pelosi, McConnell, Lindsey Graham, ….

    Americans did this to themselves. LOL

    Mr. Biden also is seeking new money for legal battles.

    His legal fund solicitations don’t include language about debt retirement. But the first $142,000 of any contribution is earmarked for the Democratic National Committee, and the next $2,800 goes to Mr. Biden’s recount account, according to the fine print.

    The Biden campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

  3. Pennsylvania, Michigan, Nevada, Wisconsin, and Georgia need immediate digital audits overseen by Bill Barr. Also, I don’t understand how Turley can claim Biden had a hard fought victory; Biden barely campaigned. Also, how can Turley support Biden when we know he literally sold us out to China?

  4. Actually there is evidence of fraud. Whether it holds up or not under further analysis is an interesting question but one we are unlikely to ever know as currently, Facebook and Twitter are blocking links to such mathematical analysis. This a mathematical, not a political analysis so there seems no good reason other than suppression of unwelcome views for Twitter and Facebook to block.

    1. Thanks, Steven.

      Twitter does not appear to be blocking the subject here: https://twitter.com/DatElefan/status/1324838425170595840

      Independent international elections observers should be able to debunk or validate the use of Benford’s Law in this way for this case.

      Including in court, if warranted.

      The method appears a subject of some debate:


      “The proliferation of elections in even those states that are arguably anything but democratic has given rise to a focused interest on developing methods for detecting fraud in the official statistics of a state’s election returns. Among these efforts are those that employ Benford’s Law, with the most common application being an attempt to proclaim some election or another fraud free or replete with fraud. This essay, however, argues that, despite its apparent utility in looking at other phenomena, Benford’s Law is problematical at best as a forensic tool when applied to elections. Looking at simulations designed to model both fair and fraudulent contests as well as data drawn from elections we know, on the basis of other investigations, were either permeated by fraud or unlikely to have experienced any measurable malfeasance, we find that conformity with and deviations from Benford’s Law follow no pattern. It is not simply that the Law occasionally judges a fraudulent election fair or a fair election fraudulent. Its “success rate” either way is essentially equivalent to a toss of a coin, thereby rendering it problematical at best as a forensic tool and wholly misleading at worst.”

  5. “The role of declaring the winner of a presidential election in the U.S. falls to the news media.” – Now deleted Tweet by the NYTimes

    That is what is known as “parapraxis”: “An error in speech, memory, or physical actions that occurs due to the interference of an unconscious subdued wish or internal train of thought”.

    Once the dumbsh*ts at the NYTimes realized that they had fallen victim to their “unconscious subdued wish or internal train of thought” and made a major :error in speech”, they deleted the Tweet and made this correction:

    “Correction: We’ve deleted an earlier tweet that referred imprecisely to the role of the news media in the U.S. presidential election. The news media projects winners and reports results; it does not declare the winner of the election.”

    Well, I declare! It appears that the old grey lady is as senile as old Uncle Joe.

  6. Per Rick Santorum (former GOP senator from Pennsylvania) yesterday morning on CNN:

    In SW Pennsylvania (and really almost all of the state) Biden increased Hillary’s percentage in red and blue, counties by 3-4%. Pittsburgh he’s up about 3.5%. No, they does not indIcate vote fixing.

    In SE Pennsylvania, same thing, Biden increasing Hillary’s margin in red and blue counties by about 3-4%. In Philadelphia, the big bad blue machine where supposed vote rigging would be most likely, BIDEN’S MARGIN IS 3.5% LESS THAN HILLARY’S. That’s the opposite of vote rigging and so much for that a..h..e Lindsay Graham’s claim that elections in Philly are crooked as snakes.

    Wake up to this BS campaign.

    1. So then, an investigation and recount will only further validate Biden’s win, put all doubts to bed.

      Why would anyone oppose such a thing?

      1. It’s been done by number one Fact Checkers at JustFact. showing Biden won because of illegal votes so suck it up snowflake your side may be having a very short administration if they are allowed any time. It’s up to The Supreme Court now.

        1. I’ll take that bet Michael. I missed out on a lot of easy money from confident Trumpsters – almost all of whom have now disappeared – before the election. How can we set that up?

        2. Really, “number one Fact Checkers at JustFact”? What makes these people that nobody’s ever heard of the number one fact checkers?

          Also no it’s not up to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is unlikely to heart any cases that would be relevant to the outcome of this election.

      2. Sure anonymous, when Republicans agree to investigations and recounts in all the elections Republicans won. OK?

        1. I’m certainly not opposed to it Joe.

          So then, it looks like we agree, there should be fraud investigations and recounts in every voting precinct in America.

        2. Joe, they’re all trying to say that Biden’s lead of 4.1 million Popular Votes is somehow irrelevant. We’re supposed to think Trump was entitled to another Electoral-College-Only victory.

    2. In Arizona were Republicans have filed a case claiming purposeful or negligent spoiling of ballots because of “overvotes” – that is ballots with marks which bleed over the boundaries of the dot. Putting aside the fact that poll workers wouldn’t know which ballots to spoil if they had a purpose, the % of ballots with overvotes is normal compared to the last 4 elections and less than half the number in 2016 (.23% vs 1.35%).

      If you’re buying this BS you’re being taken for a ride and helping to damage our democracy. Stop it!

        1. Anonymous, I heard Santorum in real time and it was yesterday morning, I don’t know if their shows are available. I can tell you I listened closely and was unusually impressed that he was relating this, given he is the GOP voice on CNN. I have related it truthfully and given his political position I doubt he was lying. He also knows Pennsylvania, being a native, past senator, etc.

      1. If you’re buying this BS you’re being taken for a ride and helping to damage our democracy. Stop it!

        Bwahahahahaha! The irony of that statement is precious. Live by the sword, die by the you know, the thing, sword. 🤣

        1. Olly has already announced his hatred of 1/2 of America and Americans so his lack of concern for our future and our shared government is consistent.

          1. 😉 At least you’re consistent. Now prove it or retain your status as a lying SOS.

    Wait Just a Minute! Some Very Good News May Be Coming
    By Jay Valentine

    Like many, I spent the last few nights waking up at 2:03 A.M., no reason, then looking at my phone for news, any news, that might be positive for President Trump. I survived on Rush, Bongino, Mark Levin. When the news continued to be ugly, I even checked in on ridiculous bloggers promising that ballots were watermarked and D.J. (our household name for a president we love) was actually launching a sting on the Deep State.

    Enough already. Stop the madness.

    Hey, I have a degree in statistics, and I have some level of critical thought. If there is such pessimism in my tribe, I am not going along.

    So today, I started to dig into the numbers, and as I did, I fought my confirmation bias at every step.

    I realized that I, like millions of others, had been numbed into despondency by the overwhelming press, media, social media push to certify President-Elect Biden. (I put that in there so you can see how repellent it is.)

    Hey guys, this thing is not only not over; it is scary for Biden. I mean really scary, and most of all, the media know it. Thus, the rush to get everyone in line with the narrative that a 78-year-old, early-dementia former V.P., who could not draw a crowd larger than a dozen, just beat D.J. in a fair election.

    Process that for a moment.

    Start with Pennsylvania. Biden, as of this writing, is at 290 electoral votes. Pennsylvania is 20.

    I read the Justice Alito opinion, and it is pretty clear that he wants the after election night at 8:00 P.M. votes separated for a reason. Biden is going to lose at the Supreme Court, and they know it. Four justices already said the Pennsylvania Supreme Court cannot adjust voting rules. A new arrival, Justice Barrett, says she is there to apply the rules in the Constitution. OK, wanna bet she does?

    Remove the after 8:00 P.M. ballots, and Biden loses Pennsylvania. Biden 270.

    Let’s visit Nevada. I have lots of friends in California who have condos in Nevada to evade state taxes. There are not a couple of people doing this; there are tens of thousands. Everyone knows it, and California seeks them out.

    Our old pal Harry Reid knows it as well, and he apparently has them voting in droves in this election. Probably not a big D.J. constituency. Within 72 hours of the election, the Trump team found, validated over 3,500 of them. I do not suspect that Trump’s people stopped counting.

    Every one of these is a ballot reduction for Biden

    Nevada, as of now, is well within reach for DJ and the Trump team — particularly when the California crowd is reduced. And a few of them may testify since a false vote is a very bad thing, with jail time if convicted. Maybe a bigger story here.

    Remember where we are, people. Biden is at 270 after a highly probable Supreme Court decision (read Alito and concurring opinions).

    Lose Nevada, lose the election.

    But wait: it gets better.

    Let’s visit Wisconsin. Right now, it is 20,000 votes in Uncle Joe’s direction. Lots of stories out there, well below the Google fold, that there are way more Wisconsin votes than there are registered voters. OK, maybe the dead can vote up there — probably a Midwest thing.

    Well, last night, we found that Wisconsin election clerks were told, and followed the direction, to modify mail-in ballots and fill in the blanks where witnesses left out critical info.

    I am sure it was just a good customer service thing and they meant no harm. The problem is every such ballot is now toast.

    There were “thousands” of such prima facie wrongful votes. Oops. Biden up 20,000 — now that number is in question. No more truckloads of votes coming in, so every ballot D.J.’s team eliminates gets President-Elect Biden on step closer to former V.P. Biden who lives in a basement. Not good here.

    North Carolina. That one pretty much looks like as though it is over and D.J. won it. Fox News is rumored to call it for Trump around April 2021.

    Remember where we are here. Biden is probably going to lose Pennsylvania, so if he loses even one state, even one Electoral College vote, ouch!

    Either D.J. wins outright, or it goes to the House, which means that D.J. has four more years.

    We’re not done yet.

    Michigan. Oh, yes, the land of the “glitches” in the voting machines. Six thousand votes for Trump given to Biden in one of 47 counties where that software is used. About 150,000 votes in Biden’s favor right now.

    Google the 130,000 Biden votes that showed up in the middle of the night, and you can see how the wonderful people at Google are fact-checking this “debunked” story. In fact, for fun, Google “Michigan voter fraud,” and you get literally three pages of “this was fact checked and proven to be false.” Why would Google be so assiduous?

    They too see that if Amy votes with the four, Biden is one vote away from the basement.

    Lawsuits in Michigan and the other states are being launched, and discovery will take place. Google will not be there.

    Voter fraud is kind of like larceny. A little is OK. It is even kind of entertaining.

    Dead people have been voting for a hundred years in Democratic cities. It is such a constant that one would think the Republican Party would consider a Dead Voter Outreach program to get their share.

    But voter fraud on this scale is just not sustainable. It does not pass the common sense test.

    We have bloggers with lots of time on their hands going through voter rolls and showing that person after person who voted in a swing state also fought in the Civil War or maybe the War of 1812. It was funny at first, but the overwhelming number now goes beyond humor and rubs our faces in it.

    I think D.J. has to swing one state. Actually, one electoral vote. Not only is this thing not over, but the Biden team must be sweating bullets.

    Voter fraud at scale seemed like a really cool idea until D.J. went to the mattresses. Now that he is fighting it out one voter at a time, with the Supreme Court likely to create the starting point at Biden 270, Biden has everything to lose.

    Perk up!


    1. Valentine writes: “Remember where we are, people. Biden is at 270 after a highly probable Supreme Court decision (read Alito and concurring opinions).”

      Goldstein provides a counterpoint:


      “I assume that a majority of the court would agree with the Republicans on the merits and would reverse the Pennsylvania Supreme Court — i.e., they would hold that the federal Constitution requires enforcing the state legislative deadline for receiving mail-in ballots. Four justices strongly signaled that they agree with that view when they dissented from the denial of the stay application. I assume Barrett would agree as well, as might the Chief Justice John Roberts (who voted against the stay) if he reached the merits.”

      “But even with all the assumptions I laid out above, for several reasons, it does not seem that an injunction is necessary here. First, these votes are beyond exceptionally unlikely to make a difference. The election has been called. In turn, it is very unlikely that the court is going to hear the challenge to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s ruling.”

      “Given all that, and the high stakes for the public’s perception of the court, there seem better options for addressing the Republicans’ serious concerns with the late-arriving ballots. The court can leave the administrative stay in place for a day, in order to give Republicans time to go to state court, and otherwise deny it without prejudice. Anything more is likely to be caricatured for the general public as calling the election into question and a partisan power play in support of the president.”

    2. “Lots of stories out there, well below the Google fold, that there are way more Wisconsin votes than there are registered voters.”

      Those stories are wrong. They miss that Wisconsin voters can register day-of, and actual voter turnout was around 70%.

  8. The only systemic problems I saw in this election so far are Trump slowing down the US mail so absentee ballots are delayed, and Republicans closing down polling places in minority neighborhoods for years so the lines end up being really long and people give up on voting.

    Those things should continue to be investigated – even after the election. Trump has raised no problems of that magnitude.

    1. This “investigation” is a con game to sucker Trump supporters again and to make the coward in chief feel better while they try to talk him down. You’re all being played and to the damage of our country and our democracy. Grow up and grow a pair. You lost.

      1. If Trump lost legitimately, so be it. I’ve been voting for over 40 years, sometimes my guy loses, life goes on.

        However, if there are substantive questions/concerns about possible election fraud, those concerns should be investigated. I mean, no one would want to win the presidency as a result of election fraud…right?

        1. Anonymous, Hillary lost the same 3 upper midwestern states in 2016 that Trump is losing now, and in both cases they are the deciding factor in the election. She lost them by a significantly smaller per cent of the vote and yet the next day conceded the election and wished Trump well, She showed up at the inauguration to show support for our government. She didn’t pull this toddler routine, and it is not without consequences for all of our’s faith in our government. That is a necessary ingredient in a democracy and there is no reason to doubt it based on this election. Suck it up. Face the music.

  9. “Multiple studies found that Gore likely won Florida.”

    LOL @ “studies”

    Multiple media outlets conducted multiple recounts, and every recount validated Bush’s victory in Florida.

    1. They had already taken the action he stated before he stated it. The disputed ballots have not been counter and are irrelevant to the out come.

      1. “Start with Pennsylvania. Biden, as of this writing, is at 290 electoral votes. Pennsylvania is 20.

        I read the Justice Alito opinion, and it is pretty clear that he wants the after election night at 8:00 P.M. votes separated for a reason. Biden is going to lose at the Supreme Court, and they know it. Four justices already said the Pennsylvania Supreme Court cannot adjust voting rules. A new arrival, Justice Barrett, says she is there to apply the rules in the Constitution. OK, wanna bet she does?

        Remove the after 8:00 P.M. ballots, and Biden loses Pennsylvania. Biden 270.”


  10. In the penultimate paragraph, Dr. Turley states that: ‘The Democrats have sought to present recounts or judicial review, the opposite position taken in 2000. The concern is that we still have had no meaningful access to the underlying evidence and, while the odds are not high, it is still possible that challenges could find traction in the courts.’ Did he mean to say ‘sought to ‘PREVENT’ instead of ‘PRESENT’ . The wrong word changes the import of the sentence.

      1. Seriously? No one? Be more precise in your language: YOU don’t care and YOU don’t take him seriously.

          1. You do realize that progressive writers, 3 gay, 1 Jewish, 1 woman and 1 token straight dude, all denounce your networks, so suck it up Joey….your credibility is dung…

  11. The Supreme court will look at will be the results of the recounts where Trump and Biden are neck-and-neck, according to tallies in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin.

    Especially in Nevada and Pennsylvania. Which if Biden loses the election is back to where it was at 9:30 PM Election night, Nov. 3rd.

    There will be recounts in Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin and Arizona.Which the corrupt Associated Press called for Biden far too early and which it appears Trump will win.

    Meanwhile, the entire MSM news organizations (including Fox News) compliance in this charade will be completely exposed, along with Twitter, FB, and Google.

    The TDS/PTS sufferers will be jumping off of buildings, ala 1929.

    So Jonathan, you’ll be finding out the hard way that your “silent apprehension” yesterday was well founded.

    If you’re going to be a lying, cheating, thief, be good at it. This thievery became amateur hour from start to finish as soon as Trump won Florida Tuesday night around 9:30 PM ET.

    The irony of which is very rich if you look back on the 2000 Bush vs Gore election, when it all came down to the hanging chads in Florida. But had NBC, ABC, and CBS not called the election for Gore that evening while the polls were still open in the Florida panhandle (which is CT, not ET) thousands of Bush voters would not have have given up waiting in line, and gone home. Had they stayed, they would have delivered Florida to Bush easily.

      1. Perfect that you would bring up the Wizard of Oz.

        Here’s a clue for you, Anon.

        What did Toto do right before Professor Marvel (aka/ The Wizard of Oz) started handing out medals to the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion, prior to Dorothy clicking her heels together?

        Toto’s headed towards the curtain…..

  12. And better yet, moving forward, let’s undertake a full examination and accounting of the Trump family use of the office of the president to benefit their personal finances. Trump kicked off a number of new trends re the presidency, they have to be documented in order to be prevented in the future….

    It’s definitely not the time to let him skate out of town the way Nixon did.

    1. Bitter lame duck pressure on the Trump family = bitter lame duck pressure on Hunter Biden?

      Biden has made COVID-19 his first order of business, not vengeance.

      If new daily COVID-19 cases remain high, and the positivity rate continues to climb, a national mask mandate and even a second national lockdown must be on the table. But a credible national mask mandate would seem to imply a federal obligation to supply every American with N95s, in the same way that a credible national health insurance mandate implies a federal obligation to provide all Americans with a truly effective and affordable health insurance plan. How will the US meet a universal national demand for N95 equivalents moving forward?


      The purpose of the ACA mandate was universal buy-in, but it’s method was unconstitutional (and deeply insulting). Is a Constitutional universal buy-in mechanism severable, or inseverable, from the remainder of a sustainable national healthcare law?


    2. People do not expect to find chastity in a whorehouse. Why, then, do they expect to find honesty and humanity in government, a congeries of institutions whose modus operandi consists of lying, cheating, stealing, and if need be, murdering those who resist?
      H. L. Mencken
      professor Turley with all due respect Biden did not fight a hard campaign maybe his staff did. he basically sat in his living room and made a few statements mostly blaming Trump for 200,000 deaths or 200 million depending upon the instant. the entire press corps carried water for him.Antifa and BLM served as excellent brown shirts I expected Ernst Rohm to pop up in any second. tearing down signs intimidating people attacking senior citizens. doing over 2 billion dollars worth of damages and Biden and crew denying it. of course Trump it is very best to sabotage himself.As for JOe your crew burn down our Business physically assault us ,tear down our history, burn our flag, teach our children to hate our country now you want Kumbaya? I don’t Doubt that there were some irregularities but Joe Biden still won fair and square by having anything he did or a son dead censored, censoring anyone social media thought might be a danger to him. it is very funny to have the Russiagate crowd complain about Republicans not accepting the election. What a chutzpah. The Communist Chinese have now changed their approach to Taiwan saying they will take it back using Force, and what better time when China Joe is in power. It’s a mandate to fix systemic racism now that is rich, since about 90% about interracial assaults are black on white. however that’s not racist and that’s just I knew entitlement I guess. they can now be free to drive while being black but if you are a cracker I suggest you do not take a walk in the hood particularly if you look Jewish. you will notice that Amy Comey Barrett will not put her children on public transportation in DC or send them to a DC School unless she’s a total idiot. there are literally hundreds of hours of self-made mini movies a black folks kicking the hell out of white senior citizens and white children. DC is one of the worst places possible. don’t think those 2 Haitian kids wouldn’t be in the targets either. Average over six consecutive years: Sexual Assault DOJ stats White on Black: 0 Black on White: 22,534 Black on Black: 24,730T]here were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (excluding homicide) between blacks and whites last year. … Blacks committed 537,204″ of them.

      I don’t think there’s any chance she’ll serve out his term and Kamala will be the biggest bait-and-switch in history. hHalf the countryy doesn’t like the intersectional carnival of critical race Theory demonizing history. there’s no question of my mind Professor that nullification will save many black criminals. The only hope for America now it’s either secession or insurrection. we’re black lives matter terrorist come to your front door and threaten you and you have a gun or show them a gun well if they’re going to throw you in jail and give the Thugs and NAACP award.
      I’ve been in sub-Saharan Africa the average yearly income is about $800 rapist a national sport in South Africa overtook rugby a long time ago. some states like Kenya and a few others are great places with great people but surrounded by Islamic lunatics.
      my advice for those of you who do not share the radical leftist position the Democrats is to prepare for war not necessarily one with guns back one with Terror the same kind of care they impose on you restaurants, on the sidewalks in front of your home. The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can’t get and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is sort of an advance auction sale of stolen goods.

      1. “Biden did not fight a hard campaign maybe his staff did. he basically sat in his living room and made a few statements mostly blaming Trump for 200,000 deaths or 200 million depending upon the instant.”


  13. Turley writes another excellent post. Meanwhile, Trump tweets: “We believe these people are thieves. The big city machines are corrupt. This was a stolen election. Best pollster in Britain wrote this morning that this clearly was a stolen election, that it’s impossible to imagine that Biden outran Obama in some of these states.”


    Trump’s digital White House platform is harder for Big Tech to interfere with than a Twitter feed:


    “Democrat officials never believed they could win this election honestly. I really believe that. That’s why they did the mail-in ballots, where there’s tremendous corruption and fraud going on. That’s why they mailed out tens of millions of unsolicited ballots without any verification measures whatsoever.”

    Are the Justices of the Supreme Court really supposed to believe that COVID-19 had nothing to do with the unprecedented use of mail-in ballots in PA and other states? POTUS did not mention COVID-19 once in his entire 5 November 2020 remarks from the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room.

  14. Hello Mr. Turdley,

    I am interested in contesting the election. How do I do it? Please write a blog about it.

  15. Agreed, Turley. Not only would a full review be very presidential of Biden, it would probably extend his lead and throw several races into a new light. Really curious to know wtf happened in South Carolina with the Graham/Harrison race, actually…

    And I’m truly entertained by your leaning on the Rosie Ruiz metaphor without talking of Trump’s election night attempted gignap — which is literally the perfect match for the Ruiz analogy. But I’ve come to expect that from your prognisticating and water carrying for the Repub side.

    “We still do not know if there is evidence of systemic fraud or irregularities. Indeed, I am getting the feeling that the Trump campaign does not know. Thus far, the Trump legal team has not submitted hard evidence as opposed to heated allegations.”

    Good that you’re getting the idea the trump team doesn’t know, because they clearly don’t. And lets not try too hard to act like the Kobach voting irregularity commision didn’t disband due to lack of evidence, shall we?

    Looking forward to seeing how you bring your trump surrogacy in for a landing in the election aftermath, Jon. When the worm turns is always the most fun time to watch you dance.

  16. Re: “I don’t see any evidence.” “I demand evidence, this second.” “There is no evidence.” “The evidence is flimsy.”

    Some do not grasp the fact that investigations proceed in *stages*. Only an immature child demands of a prosecutor, who’s standing over a still warm, dead body: “I demand evidence right now of who did it.”

    1. Sam, I’m sure then you support investigations into Graham,McConnell’s, and any other Republicans who “won” election results. Why not? We must remove the cloud that hangs over them.

      1. Bear in mind that Graham and McConnell’s reelections weren’t even close. Fraud occurs in close elections, not ones won by large margins.

        1. The Biden victory was by a greater margin than Trump’s in 2016 and in the same 3 states and yet Hillary conceded the next day, wished him wel, and had the balls to show up at the inauguration. Let’s see if the puny c..s…,.r in the WH has any.

      2. “other Republicans who “won” election results”

        What happened to your “blue wave”?

        The DNC made a huge mistake funneling $67 million to the never Trumpers at The Lincoln Project.

        When you decide to employ a “The enemy of my enemy, is my friend.” strategy, it is always a good idea not to choose another enemy, and then expect them to act like your friend.

        1. zerohedge? Yes I’m sure that “Tyler Durden” has some brilliant analysis as always. Emphasis on “anal”.

  17. I feel kinda bad for Rosie Ruiz. She was probably hoping her cheating had been forgotten. She has to live with that shame; now it’s in the public eye again, 40 years later.
