Florida fights back against Biden’s election monitors


This story was originally published by the WND News Center.

WEST PALM BEACH, Florida – The state of Florida is pushing back against the federal government’s “monitoring” inside polling places on Election Day, saying it violates state law.

On Monday, the Florida Department of State sent a letter to Joe Biden’s Justice Department, notifying officials that “federal election monitors” are prohibited from going inside polling locations.

The Justice Department announced it was sending monitors to 64 jurisdictions in 24 states, stating: “Monitors will include personnel from the Civil Rights Division and from U.S. Attorneys’ Offices. In addition, the division also deploys monitors from the Office of Personnel Management, where authorized by federal court order. Division personnel will also maintain contact with state and local election officials.”

“Department of Justice monitors are not permitted under Florida law,” wrote Brad McVay, general counsel for the Florida Department of State in his letter of objection.

“Even if they could qualify as ‘law enforcement … the presence of federal law enforcement inside polling places would be counterproductive and could potentially undermine confidence in the election.”

The federal agents are targeting three Florida counties with large Democrat majorities: Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County.

McVay says the Justice Department did “not detail the need for federal monitors in these counties. None of the counties are currently subject to any election-related federal consent decrees. None of the counties have been accused of violating the rights of language or racial minorities or of the elderly or disabled.”

Fox News Voter Analysis: Majorities in key states fault Biden’s handling of border security


Voters in states with key midterm races are faulting President Biden for his handling of securing the southern border — amid a historic surge in migration and despite claims by the administration that the border is “secure.”

The Fox News Voter Analysis survey found that majorities of voters in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin all disapproved of President Biden’s handling of border security.

In Ohio (62%) and Wisconsin (63%), both with tight Senate races in play, more than 6 in 10 voters said they disapproved of Biden’s handling of border security. 

In Pennsylvania, where the Senate race between John Fetterman and Mehmet Oz could decide which party controls the Senate, 61% of voters disapproved of Biden’s handling of the border, while just 39% approved.

In Georgia, where Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., is locked in a tight re-election race against Republican challenger Herschel Walker, 60% disapproved and 40% approved.

Meanwhile in Florida, where Gov. Ron DeSantis defeated challenger Charlie Crist, 61% disapproved of Biden’s handling of border security. DeSantis has been a fierce critic of the Biden administration’s handling of the migrant crisis, even going so far as to fly migrants to Martha’s Vineyard.

Dems Accused of Scheming to Claim Election Victory No Matter the Votes


This story was originally published by the WND News Center.

Democrats, reacting to President Trump’s claims of a stolen 2020 presidential election, launched into a campaign against “election deniers” that they still pursue, despite the fact members of their own party are outspoken “election deniers” after any election won by a Republican.

Of course, after the fact, we learned that in the 2020 race the FBI lobbied Big Tech to suppress damaging information about the Biden family’s business dealings, and Mark Zuckerberg handed out, through foundations, $400 million plus, and the evidence shows either one of those factors likely changed the election winner from President Trump to Joe Biden.

But they still claimed that Trump was doing anything to hold onto power.

Now THEY will, charges John Daniel Davidson, senior editor at The Federalist.

In a column at that publication, he pointed out that Democrats and corporate media on their side “have been pushing hard the message that we won’t know the results of key races for days, maybe weeks.”

“It’s not just about counting absentee ballots, it’s about getting the rigging in place, either to claim victory or deny the legitimacy of the vote. Whatever Democrats say they fear Republican ‘election deniers’ might do, they themselves are preparing to do the same or worse,” he wrote.

He pointed out Democrats have built their power by aligning “with elite interests and woke morality,” and now control the White House and the administrative bureaucracy and are supported by corporate media and Big Tech.

Trump lawyers who fought election results saw Thomas as key


WASHINGTON (AP) — Lawyers who aided former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election regarded an appeal to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as a “key” to their success, according to emails provided to congressional investigators and made public Wednesday.

The emails from December 2020 show the lawyers discussing ways to delay the certification of results in Georgia, a closely contested state won by Democrat Joe Biden. One lawyer, Kenneth Chesebro, suggested that an appeal to Thomas, as the justice who handles emergency appeals from Georgia, could “end up being the key here.”

“We want to frame things so that Thomas could be the one to issue some sort of stay or other circuit justice opinion saying Georgia is in legitimate doubt,” Chesebro wrote. “Realistically, our only chance to get a favorable judicial opinion by Jan. 6, which might hold up the Georgia count in Congress, is from Thomas.”

Another lawyer, John Eastman, responded that he was in agreement, saying that if Thomas were to act, “that may be enough to kick the Georgia Legislature into gear.”

The emails were disclosed to congressional investigators as part of a long-running lawsuit involving Eastman, a conservative lawyer and an architect of Trump’s last-ditch efforts to stay in office, and the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Supreme Court Rules That Lindsey Graham Must Testify in Georgia Inquiry

  • Understand Georgia’s Investigation of Election Interference

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to block a Georgia grand jury subpoena seeking testimony from Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, about his activities in the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election.

    The court’s order was one paragraph and did not note any dissents. It said that Mr. Graham had been afforded substantial protections by lower courts, which had ruled that he did not have to testify on subjects related to his official duties.

    “The lower courts assumed that the informal investigative fact finding that Senator Graham assertedly engaged in constitutes legislative activity protected by the speech or debate clause” of the Constitution, the order said, “and they held that Senator Graham may not be questioned about such activities.”

    But the Supreme Court’s order refused to block rulings by lower courts that permitted questioning on other topics, and it noted that Mr. Graham remained free to object to questions that implicated his legislative activities.

Live updates: US midterm election and early voting news




Former Vice President Mike Pence asked Georgians to vote – and pray – for Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, along with his family and “all that they’ve endured” while speaking at a rally Tuesday in Cumming, Georgia, just days before Election Day.

Pence stood alongside Kemp, whom former President Donald Trump sought to unseat earlier this year in a Republican primary, and praised the incumbent “as singularly one of the most successful conservative governors in the United States of America.”

“I want to encourage you, if you’re inclined to bow the head and bend the knee from time to time, the next six-and-a-half days would be a good time to do it,” Pence said. “I want to encourage you to pray for this good family. Pray for all that they’ve endured for you to make Georgia more prosperous and more secure.”

Biden Votes With Granddaughter, Trips Over His Hypocrisy and Compares Himself to Fetterman

Biden Votes With Granddaughter, Trips Over His Hypocrisy and Compares Himself to Fetterman

Joe Biden voted in Delaware in early voting on Saturday with his 18-year-old granddaughter Natalie Biden, daughter of Beau, who was voting for the first time.

Even though Biden attacked Georgia over the election law that they passed last year claiming that it was “Jim Crow on steroids,” Georgia has more opportunity to vote than Delaware. You may notice something else when the two of them vote — they both have to show ID. It even looks like they have signature verification as well.

So if an ID is racist, as Democrats have told us, why is that happening in Joe Biden’s state and why isn’t he objecting, if it’s suppression? Because of course, it’s not suppression, he knows that, he’s engaged in it for years. It’s normal in Delaware, in much of the country, and in a lot of places elsewhere in the world. It’s only the Democrats who try to make some ridiculous lie that requiring an ID is suppression. But they only attack the red states over it. It shows how completely hypocritical Joe Biden was in his criticism of Georgia.

Natalie, who just turned 18, was so thrilled to be able to vote for the first time. Joe Biden put a sticker on her chest, indicating she voted, then kissed her. That interaction got a lot of comments on social media.

Obama, campaigning in Georgia, warns of threats to democracy



COLLEGE PARK, Ga. (AP) – Former President Barack Obama returned to the campaign trail Friday in Georgia, using his first stop on a multistate tour to frame the 2022 midterm elections as a referendum on democracy and to urge voters not to see Republicans as an answer to their financial problems.

It was a delicate balance as the former president acknowledged the pain of inflation and tried to explain why President Joe Biden and Democrats should not shoulder all the blame as they face the prospect of losing narrow majorities in the House and Senate when the votes are counted together. Nov 8 But Obama argued that Republicans bent on making it harder for people to vote and — like former President Donald Trump — willing to ignore the results also can’t be trusted to care about Americans’ wallets.

“The very foundation of our democracy is being called into question right now,” Obama told more than 5,000 voters gathered outside Atlanta. “Democrats aren’t perfect. I’ll be the first to admit that. … But right now, with a few notable exceptions, most of the GOP and a whole bunch of these candidates don’t even pretend the rules apply to them .”

Continued record voter turnout in Georgia following the Biden administration’s lawsuit against the state alleging racist voting practices and the president’s accusation that the system is “Jim Crow 2.0” has at least one Georgia election official looking for an apology from the administration.

“How many turnout records do we have to break before Stacey Abrams and President Biden apologize to Georgia?” Gabriel Sterling, Chief Operating Officer of the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office, told Fox News Digital in a statement Friday after his office released numbers showing a continued surge in voting in the Peach State.

The state of Georgia has experienced a record early voting turnout since the first day of early voting began on Monday, Georgia’s Secretary of State Office said in a press release this week.

The press release said that just under 400,000 voters have cast their ballots so far and Wednesday’s total number marks a 63% increase from the same time during the 2018 midterm and is just slightly lower than the three-day total of early voting from the 2020 presidential election.
