The Morning Report - 11/3/20

iwomoment.jpg

Good morning, kids. We have reached a moment of truth in the life of this nation unlike anything we have ever experienced, and G-d forbid, we should ever have to experience again. But the situation is what it is. It's in your face and to not see it - especially now - is to live in a state of denial so intense as to warrant seeking psychological help. I am not one for cult of personality type adulation of individuals, but this nation, that is those who believe in its promise as set forth by its founders, owe a debt of gratitude to President Donald Trump that can never be repaid.

There is an apocryphal quote attributed to a witness of the execution of Charles I. As the axe fell he reportedly said, "that so good a man should be so bad a king." Disregarding the circumstances surrounding the utterance of that phrase, in terms of Trump, perhaps it's appropriate to say "that so flawed a man should be so outstanding a president." But having said that, what really are this man's "flaws?" In the cold light of day, they are petty and meaningless. "Make America Great Again" is not just a catchy phrase or a campaign slogan. For Trump, it is a mantra and a way of life. Whatever he has achieved in his life because of his education, skills, drive and support from his family could not have happened anywhere else. It was the greatness of America, the freedom to succeed or fail and start over on one's own terms that made him great. One of the rhetorical kill-shots of the final debate (not quite two weeks but which seems like it was ages ago) was when Trump said...

"You know, Joe, I ran because of you. I ran because of Barack Obama, because you did a poor job. If I thought you did a good job, I would've never run. I would've never run. I ran because of you. I'm looking at you now, you're a politician. I ran because of you."

Those words are just pregnant with meaning. More than mere policy, or problem-solving, Trump understood that it was not only what those two, their party as well as the GOP-e collaborators didn't accomplish in eight years, but what they were complicit in for years and even decades before Donald J. Trump even entertained the possibility of running for office: the methodical dismantling of the very things, stated above, that made not only the success of Donald Trump but every other hard-working, G-d-fearing, law-abiding American possible. Look at what he, his family, friends and his loyal team have been put through since he came down the escalator at Trump Tower five-and-a-half years ago. To say it's been a living hell is an understatement.

Look at what we who supported him have been put through: everything from cement hate-shakes, bike locks, beat downs, blood-libeling, bullets and arson, to censorship, ridicule, intimidation and loss of employment for daring to exercise our rights to express our opinion guaranteed in a sacred document; one which those who abuse us seek to destroy while conveniently hiding behind its very protections when called out.

No, Donald J. Trump did not need to do this. Donald J. Trump felt he HAD to do this.

The final sentence before the signatures on The Declaration of Independence reads:

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

The 56 men who signed that document on July 4th, 1776 knew full well that had they not gained independence for the colonies, they were signing their own death warrant. Even if, please GOD, President Trump wins reelection, when he leaves office at noon on January 20th, 2025 he, his children and his grandchildren will be targeted for retribution for all time by the forces who, until he came along, were well on the way to "fundamentally transforming" America into a vassal state of surpassing mediocrity and misery to be lorded over by puppets of a global government, itself controlled by the Chi-Coms.

To risk all of that, with one's eyes wide open, truly takes an individual with character, faith in the Almighty and when you get right down to it, guts. I cannot even put into words how I personally feel about being proud for the first time in my adult life to cast a vote for someone. It's up there with the trepidation I feel about who comes after this president. Trump cannot be a one-off. He must not be a one-off. The enthusiasm and energy of tens of thousands of people at those rallies just can't be for one man; it has to be for a movement that heralds a national revival.

Yes, we owe a debt of gratitude to President Donald Trump that can never be repaid -- except of course to go out and cast a vote for this man.

There are far too many links to analyze and digest. In any case it's all there in the link titles and descriptions. On a personal note, a big thank you to commenter Dave in FL for his insights and prognostications. Whatever the outcome, he approached things honestly and relied on the broadest possible sources and methodologies to come to a conclusion in as unbiased and neutral a way that he could. Outstanding, sir!

Now on to the link-a-palooza. If you are in a BLM/Antifa target area, please stay indoors and be prepared. GO TRUMP!!!! GO AMERICA!!!!

Boarding up with required submission posters and slogans painted on, of course.

32 13 people in my Voting Convoy for Operation Save America. Very heavy turnout at 0600. We waited about an hour to vote. This county went for Hillary in 2016 by about 51%. Seemed like a lot of Trump supporters, but hard to tell. I wouldn't let my guard down though. Democrats are being told to show up.

--

I wonder this myself. I come to the conclusion that He does care about such human proclivities. Why? Because a totalitarian globe (which is the globalist end game here) is the work of the Satan. With respect to America, what affects us here affects the entire world for better or worse. I have to believe G*d is with us and knows our humanity is either going to be controlled by Satan in the end, or will be free. Simplistic, but that's where I am on it.

46 Re-copying Fenelon's excellent prayer from the EEMT:

Almighty God, I thank You for the leadership of President Trump and his efforts to fundamentally change the course of this nation back to its founding principles. Your Word promises wisdom to those who ask. I
ask You to give President Trump the wisdom of King Solomon. Anoint his mind and give him stamina, knowledge, strength, and vision. Surround him with people who believe in God and want the well being and success of our country. May people who provide his security be those who take seriously their job to protect him from enemies, foreign and domestic. Lord, I pray that you give the people who support him a spirit of courage, power
and a sound mind and the ability to vote in person or by mail in ballots, and that we might have an honest election, and that if it's your will he might be returned to lead us. Most especially we pray for mercy and healing for our country and that forces against faith and
democracy and our Constitution be defeated by your mighty arm and power. We ask it in Jesus' name. Amen.

I have filed suit in HI, and the Hawaiian Judge has already ruled that the polls in all states shall stay open until midnight Dec 3, ballots cast in all forms shall be accepted until then, registration shall remain open, and it is hereby illegal to check if a voter has already cast a ballot, but shall accept all ballots for immediate counting.

60 The GF and I went out to get in line at our polling place in Greenwich Village at 6. The line was 2 blocks long and growing, which isn't a surprise. 2 places ahead of us was a 'retired journalist' about age 50 who was practically a stereotype. He was talking very loudly about the deplorables, and the rubes who 'live in a totally different reality' than normal people. You kind of expect that in Greenwich Village. What I didn't expect was all the eye rolling his loud talk inspired. With social distancing, there was probably only 10 or 12 people within ear shot for him. But all but the woman he was speaking directly to all gave me a version of it. They all very clearly thought he was ridiculous, and out of line.

JJ, I think you can confirm... if you're a Republican in Manhattan, voting isn't seen as a high priority. You know you're wildly outnumbered so if you lose by 10 or 10,000, NYC politics is going to go where it goes. But this year, I think it's going to be very different. It won't be enough to win the city, but it might be enough to send a message to any of the members of the left who haven't yet completely lost their minds.

76 The fact that so much rides on this election is a bright red flag that something is so seriously wrong in this country. I don't want to go through this every 4 years, this do or die, this "battle for the soul of the nation" tug of war. The Democratic Party has been overtaken by socialists and communists, of that there really isn't any arguable point. Those that aren't there yet will be replaced soon enough. Every ideal they now hold is anti-American in nature. Are we really going to go through this struggle every presidential election now? They aren't moving back to the center, even if they get creamed today. Many people argue we need to hold together as a nation. I don't see how. I want a split, somehow someway.

JJ, I think you can confirm... if you're a Republican in Manhattan, voting isn't seen as a high priority. You know you're wildly outnumbered so if you lose by 10 or 10,000, NYC politics is going to go where it goes. But this year, I think it's going to be very different. It won't be enough to win the city, but it might be enough to send a message to any of the members of the left who haven't yet completely lost their minds.

The GOP here and in the state in general sucks. That said, I think enough people are sick to fucking death of the Marxists. Even an old-fashioned machine Democrat like Bill Thompson (if you know who he is) could build a coalition of SANE people to take back city government.

As of now, the only candidates we have are John Catsimitidis and Curtis Sliwa. Neither is ideal, to say the least. But there is an opportunity if only some good people with enough money can get the ball rolling.

I arrived at the school at 6:50am. About fifty people in line, all spread out making the line look very long. All Masks. They opened the doors at 7am and we zoomed right in, waiting for just a couple of minutes.

Lots of voters streaming in as I left. Very busy. Turnout is gonna be big.

When I checked in, the gal told me I was her first ever check in. It was her first time working an election. I told her it was my first time voting in Maryland. I was also the first vote cast on the machine I used. I don't know if it is auspicious or not. All I know is, I did my part. Feels good. Almost as good as walking out of Confession.

Unfortunately, I don't think we could find a handful of civilian patriots who would have the courage and resolve to take that risk again. PDT certainly has, as J.J. so eloquently pointed out.

One who has been in office half a century, has made himself and his family fabulously wealthy as a result, one who is corrupt beyond measure, who would sell out America for the right price, is arrogant beyond measure, mean, nasty, full of himself in the extreme, and stupid beyond compare. Add in his obvious mental decline. If you can vote for that, as well as what the Democrat party has evolved into, my respect for you is non-existent.

they'll be calling states way too early for Beijing Joe, even those he ultimately loses, and will hide Trump victories until the very last second, which they did to a lesser extent four years ago.


I'm hoping that both OANN and NewsMax will take this golden opportunity to steal the spotlight and viewers away from the MSM and FOX and the other anti-news outfits,

and broadcast the real numbers as they happen and, more importantly, act as honest brokers.

YUGE business and actual public service opportunity for OANN and NewsMax should they choose to seize it.

Posted by: garrett at November 03, 2020 08:09 AM (0X+Qu)

247 My Prediction:

Go Vote! This prediction is based on the voters who haven't voted yet showing up on Election Day and casting a ballot. Estimates for turnout this year are 140 to 150 million. According to TargetEarly, 87 million people have voted so far. That means 53 to 63 million voters have yet to vote. Polling and tradition says the majority of those voters will be GOP. Some models say as much as 69% of the partisan vote today will be Republican. But they have to do what they've said they are going to do and vote. Democrat votes are way below the margins they wanted going into Election Day, in particular the youth and Black vote is severely underperforming.

But if we don't vote TODAY, then it is all for nothing. This is a realignment election. Many of you say we aren't voting ourselves out of this. This is one of those rare times when you truly get to change the course of history. It comes perhaps once in a generation. So get out there and cast you vote for Trump and every Republican on that ballot. And for God's sake quit worrying about fraud! As I wrote over a month, if you vote in person they can't steal your vote. If we put up enough votes, the Dems can't steal the election.

States that are over, Trump will win them:
Arizona, Texas, Iowa, Ohio, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Nebraska-2, Maine-2 : Trump has a base of 260 electoral votes.

The "conservative" prediction, this assumes Trump performs as expected or slightly below and fights for the remaining swing states, fraud is a significant factor:
Trump also wins Pennsylvania and Michigan : Trump's final vote is 296 EVs.

The "red wave" prediction, this assumes Trump's acceleration continues and surges in some of the harder swing states. I consider this the most likely outcome:
Trump also wins Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and New Hampshire. He also has a 50/50 shot at Nevada : Trump's final vote is 320 or 326 depending on Nevada fraud. This is the exact prediction that the Democracy Insitiute poll is giving (only one that got 2016 and BrExit right)

Additional predictions, these are here to just keep some markers I put out previously, on the table:
Trump will win Florida by 400K+ votes, based on increased support in Miami and the Atlantic Coast.
Trump will win Texas by 10 points.

Senate:
GOP wins - Arizona, Texas, Iowa, Montana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, both Georgia seats, and Maine. I think a Michigan pickup is likely, but Minnesota will be harder.
GOP loses - Colorado
Final results will be R+0 to R+2

House:
GOP will gain seats. If the rallies in places like Beverly Hills are meaningful, then Pelosi will be fired.

250 Trump is being brutally blunt and honest on Fox and Friends about that network's descent into leftism. Great line: the Deep State wants a president to do nothing but accede to them. Absolutely true.

270 I live in the most yuppie, New England upper class snobbyass town you can possibly imagine. These people think that they're all God's gift to enlightened, intelligent, empathetic thought. The BLM signs outnumber the Trump signs 15:1 in town. Every day I have to leave my house and go through the town I'm constantly reminded of *how much they hate me*. I'm in their professional class... I have infiltrated their social circles. I enjoy the same establishments they do - but I'm not like them. Every social event I go to, I'm constantly exposed to behavior that, if is not outright progressive preaching, is a bad attempt at masking it as polite conversation.
One of my neighbors is head of the state teachers union. Another is Scott Lehigh - a Boston Globe opinion columnist. Another has about 20 BLM signs in her yard while her husband suffers from such severe dementia that he gets lost about twice a year in the woods behind our neighborhood. You guys wonder why I'm such an eeyore - this is what I'm surrounded with here.

But this morning - I'm sooo looking forwards to pulling into the polling place around 11AM, wearing my camo and hunters' orange and getting out of my H1, doing my best to proclaim that I am not one of these people who think they are so smart but are really petty tyrants. It's going to feel good.

286 The Day the Jackass Died

A long, long time ago
I can still remember how that flag used to make me smile
And I knew if we had our chance
That we could make our country dance
And maybe we'd be happy for a while

But November made me shiver
With every paper I'd deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more step

I do remember that I cried
When I read freedom up and died
Then something touched me deep inside
The day the jackass died

[Chorus:]
So bye, bye, all those Democrat Lies
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey 'n rye
Singin' this'll be the day that it dies
This'll be the day that it dies

[Verse 1]
Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so?
Now do you believe in stars and stripes?
Can freedom save your mortal soul?
And can it teach us how to love our own?

Well, I know that you're in love with him
'Cause I saw you screamin' in the gym
You both kicked off your shoes
Man, I dig that red white and blue

I was a lonely midaged broncin' buck
With a pink slip and a pickup truck
But I knew I was back in luck
The day the jackass died

[Chorus:]
So bye, bye, all those Democrat Lies
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey 'n rye
Singin' this'll be the day that it dies
This'll be the day that it dies

[Verse 2]
Now for eight years we'd been on our own
And lies grew fat there in Rollin' Stone
But that's just how it had to be
Then the badger sat in for the king and queen
In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
And a voice that came from you and me

Oh, and while the king was looking down
The badger stole his thorny crown
The courtroom was adjourned
No verdict was returned

And while Lenin read a book on Marx
Pantifa practiced in the park
And they sang hymns there in the dark
Until the day the jackass died

[Chorus:]
So bye, bye, all those Democrat Lies
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey 'n rye
Singin' this'll be the day that it dies
This'll be the day that it dies

[Verse 3]
Virus raging in a summer swelter
The karens flew off in a fallout shelter
The sick miles high but falling fast
It landed foul on the grass
The doctors tried for another pass
With the badger on the sidelines in a cast

Now the October air was sweet perfume
While the sergeants played a marching tune
We all got up to dance
But would we get the chance?

Then the doctors tried to take the field
But the badger he refused to yield
Do you recall what was revealed
The day the jackass died?

[Chorus:]
So bye, bye, all those Democrat Lies
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey 'n rye
Singin' this'll be the day that it dies
This'll be the day that it dies

[Verse 4]
Oh, and there they were all in one place
A generation lost in space
With no time left to start again
So come on, Joe be nimble, Joe be quick
Pantifa threw a candlestick
But fire was never the jackass' friend

Oh, and as I watched him on the stage
My hands were raised in fists of rage
No angel born in Hell
Could break the badger's spell

And as the flames climbed high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite
I saw Satan weeping in despair
The day the jackass died

[Chorus:]
So bye, bye, all those Democrat Lies
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey 'n rye
Singin' this'll be the day that it dies
This'll be the day that it dies

[Outro]
I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just screamed and turned away
I went down to the sacred place
Where I'd sung the music just days before
And the man there said the music'd play forever

And in the streets, the children cheered
The lovers cried and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were ringing

And the three men I admire most
The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
They heard the voices of the faithful prayers
The day the jackass died

[Chorus:]
So bye, bye, all those Democrat Lies
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey 'n rye
Singin' this'll be the day that it dies
This'll be the day that it dies

[Chorus:]
So bye, bye, all those Democrat Lies
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey 'n rye
Singin' this'll be the day that it dies
This'll be the day that it dies

It boggles the mind that anybody could believe that sleazy Joe Biden is a good man. Even before his crack-head son left a laptop full of evidence of pay-offs in a repair shop, Joe Biden was known for being on the take. He wasn't known for years in the senate as "the senator from MBNA" for nothing.

That's great! I see there's even a rainbow flag waving in the back. Now, I hope those guys got out and actually voted, and changed the minds of those around them. Black Americans are so ingrained with voting Democrat, it's going to take their own people to dismantle the addiction to that disastrous, rote voting habit.

Posted by: Lady in Black at November 03, 2020 08:04 AM

Agreed. Donald Trump and others can show them the path, but they still need to make the decision to walk it.

I think 2020 is the "fork in the road" for black Americans, politics-wise.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.


Black Americans have been voting Democrat for decades, taking the road more traveled by. Hopefully this year and going forward, they see that taking the road less traveled by will make all the difference for success in their future.

I do not envy their situation. There is a LOT of pressure on black Americans to stay on the leftist Democrat plantation. From family, friends, church, social media, celebrities, professional athletes, neighborhood gangs, classmates, etc. Takes a lot of courage to stand up to that.

But I think the more black Americans stand up to it, the more it will inspire others. Strength in numbers.

370 I voted. Wow. Just, wow. Got there at 6:20 and got into line - about 50 people ahead of me. Outside. 34 degrees. Line started moving about 6:32. Inside, finally, where it was warm - election workers come out in hallway and tell us "the system" is down and it'll be 1/2 hour until things start. We better not stay if we have to get to work - WHAAT? After 20 min, the line starts moving - the tablets weren't working, so it was old school look-names-up-in-the-book. All in all, about an hour and a half.

This stuff always happens for the big elections. Always, always, always. I'm glad it's over, but now I'll be crabby the rest of the day.

Posted by: runner at November 03, 2020 08:22 AM (zr5Kq)

=============

Good. Like many cities, it's made up from a few stitched together communities. The peninsula, especially south of Broad Street, is where the richest live. Historic houses and shit that probably have higher flood insurance premiums than mortgage payments. The outlying communities are Mount Pleasant, James Island, Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island, North Charleston, Hanahan, West Ashley, and Summerville. Mostly residential in nature, these communities range from the nicest like Isle of Palms to the least like North Charleston.

It's growing fast. A neighbor works in construction and told me about the massive buildup in Summerville, the community furthest from the coast, since the lockdown which ramped up our growth. Locusts be coming. So, I'm hoping that they're the good kind who have learned their lessons.

400 Thank you, JJ. Great Morning Report. To items on this, with a couple of links of my own.

First, to the "lives, fortunes, sacred honor" piece, the inestimable Paul Harvey did a spectacular short film about this in particular, and the men who lived it to liberate this land and form this Republic. I watch it every Independence Day, and I strongly recommend it:
https://youtu.be/s7vqzJC0r7A

Second, to the picture at the top, it is doubtlessly one of the most iconic pictures in American history. It gut-punches me every time I see it, and I have seen it countless thousands of times. And this picture was also the first time I really saw the deep-seated contempt that the Left has for our culture, and that there are no limits to their cultural corruption. This was once an environmentalism-related magazine cover from Time, about the need to tackle global warming:

402 Update from Greenwich Village, the polling place on 10th and Broadway no longer has a line. (GF just got back from the morning dog walk) At 6:00 AM the line went around the block and down 11th street. Now, nothing. You can't extrapolate this to anywhere else. Greenwich Village is a bubble all to itself. But the worst of the NYC riots happened within line of site of this polling place, and maybe that's having some effect. More early voting for lefty or lower turnout due to relocation. I don't know. Just thought there might be some interest in the data point.

During all the High Holy Days services I have ever attended (I was raised Reform, but have attended services in Reform, Conservative and (sigh) Reconstructionist synagogues), there is always a prayer for Israel and a separate prayer for the country. It is good, and while I said it during the High Holy Days this year, I am saying it again tonight and tomorrow for good measure.

These are all a little bit different (depends on the synagogue, the denomination, the specific prayer books and liturgy any given congregation uses, etc.), but this one is pretty close to the one with which I am familiar:

On a personal note, a big thank you to commenter Dave in FL for his insights and prognostications. Whatever the outcome, he approached things honestly and relied on the broadest possible sources and methodologies to come to a conclusion in as unbiased and neutral a way that he could. Outstanding, sir!

Thank you JJ.

I feel truly blessed that I was able to provide a voice of rationality and calm. And very thankful of others like you, CBD, TJM, JackStraw, and Zombie who stood firm in their beliefs and refused to accept the narrative.

I am very confident in my prediction this year, but we have to vote. I'll be taking my wife to the polls in about an hour, and will be casting my ballot with joy and conviction. We are going to win.

Here in the middle of nowhere Kentucky, almost half of the registered voters voted early. The normal voting sites have been reduced by half, only six locations open (I did say nowhere - population 13,000.) I always vote on my way to my office, and never have more than 4 or 5 people in line, sometime none.

I will vote later today, the polling location had three dozen cars in the parking lot, and some on the side of the street. It will be a record turnout. And, the good news...the county votes 85%+ Republican!

They don't want to understand it because it gets in the way of them more easily stealing elections. If their easiest path to a guaranteed victory was via Electoral College they would say they understand it.

It's no different from Lefties decrying the unfairness of having the same number of Senators from Wyoming as NY and CA have. They want to get LIVs fired up w/this feigned misunderstanding of how our government was set up to prevent mob rule and to balance state rights against federal power.

I heard a black conservative on the radio this morning. He thinks black support of Trump will be around 12-13%. 25% with black men but much lower with black women.

Posted by: Scott-high plains deplorable at November 03, 2020 08:44 AM (wdmSt)

=========

This is essentially the same as complaining that Trump isn't your style of politician, despite the conservative goods, so you're thinking of voting for Biden.

Sasse isn't helpful when he comes out saying things against Trump, but did we ever, ever have to wonder if he was going to vote against Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, or ACB? No. He was a lock.

The problems with Sasse are style problems. Nebraska would be sending someone who would definitely not have voted for any of the three justices instead if he loses.

1. You can't ever search for the truth
2. If you accidentally stumble across the truth, you have to be willing to accept that it is Russian Propaganda.
3. You have to hate the other guy. Really, really hate.
4. You have to hate working.
5. You have to cower in fear at the thought of being independent from the government mother.
6. You have to lie.
7. You must be okay with rewriting history books and purging books which disagree with your dogma.
8. You must believe that science is fluid, capable of being bent to your current belief system.
9. You must also believe DNA is also fluid, capable of flipping between male and female at any time, upon command.
10. You must hate any religion that doesn't meet your belief system.

539 Got to the polls at 6:40, about 10 minutes after opening, already a line well out the door (though socialist distancing didn't help there). Everything went pretty smoothly, though -- probably took about 20 minutes to get in and out, all told. Had to go to a verification table first to get ID checked and tell them my name/address while they had it. Got a little stylus and a ticket to let me vote, voted straight R, printed a paper ballot, took it to a different machine and fed it in. And then, back to the house for some coffee. I'm hoping the high turnout means something good, though I would imagine that Trump inspires as much passion in his enemies as he does in his supporters.

561 I'll try to dispense some fear. The poll watcher thing is a game they play in Philly every year. That watcher will be allowed in in a few hours. They will steal some votes in the meantime.

This fraud is already baked into the election framework, it was used in 2016 too. The rest of PA is used to it, and they compensate for it.

This is why no one in PA votes early, they don't want Philly to know how many votes they need to manufacture.

Don't get worked up over Philly, they don't have the votes to over turn an election. Keep an eye on turnout in Scranton, NE PA, and western PA. That is what will determine the election. Philly doesn't have enough votes, even with cheating.

The Pittsburgh paper that endorsed Trump the other day listed, as one of Trump's negatives, something to the effect of: 'He refuses to learn politics.'

Exactly! I went into the voting booth with that phrase stuck in my head this morning. As mentioned by others, I am not into being a follower of politicians but I found myself beaming with pride as I walked away from that church. First time for everything I suppose.

Washington DC did not change Donald Trump, Donald Trump changed Washington DC and THAT is why I vote with pride.

[n]Posted by: SaltLifeLurker at November 03, 2020 08:32 AM[/n]

As I have paid attention to politics since 09/12/2001, I have learned that "politics" is -- as far as the GOP is concerned -- promising one thing to get elected, then doing nothing about those promises once in office.

President Trump has been the complete opposite of what we have all come to know a GOP politician to be. And it has been a breath of fresh air and then some.

Not only does he keep his promises, he also defends himself AND attacks the other side -- leftists, Democrats, media, celebrities, etc -- and calls them out on their bullshit.

THAT is what I have been waiting for in a Republican/conservative candidate since I started paying attention to politics and saw how dirty the other side played the game.

We were told for years by our "bettors" that we could never win with a candidate like Donald Trump. We had to be "above the fray" and stay away from divisive topics. Donald Trump said to hell with that and put the lie to all the conventional wisdom.

Enough of the "losing with dignity" horseshit.

If this is "not learning politics", then I hope every Republican from here forward refuses to learn politics in the same way he has done.

591 First of all, Happy Birthday JJ! Your Morning Report has been a daily habit of mine for years! Thank you so much for all you do.

I voted this morning here in the Metro East (in Illinois, near St. Louis) before 7 am. My husband unfortunately is liberal so our votes cancel each other out. At least we both voted that our state politicians can't give themselves automatic raises!

We were 33/34th in line to vote. The parking lot at our polling place looked like it should be 5pm, not 6:45 am. I honestly have no clue what that means - we're in Illinois, so I'm not holding my breath that Trump will carry the state. As absolutely glorious as that would be!

Finally, could I have some prayers from the Horde? I am currently 20 weeks pregnant. It's a high risk pregnancy. So far everything has gone well, but I worry. I would like nothing more than our child to be born safely, and to grow up to love God, his or her family, and this country as founded. And to be a future Moron. Thanks.

668 I usually vote on Election Day, but I went ahead and delivered my ballot in person yesterday. Everything is so unpredictable that I wanted to make sure I had time for several attempts if the line was too long on the first try.

There were no 6-ft markers, which was nice. And while I can't really compare with prior years since I have never gone the day before, there did seem to be more voters this year. We are a pretty deep-red county.

Something I discovered this year while looking at election maps from 2016: Pueblo, CO, which is a blue union town, went for Trump in 2016. Interesting.

Ya know, this could perfidious but it could also be an equipment failure. Using a punchcard or a machine-read inked card (like you use on a standardized test - essentially a Scantron form) rarely fails. Tabulating can be done on a computer (and should be), but I hate computerized voting machines. Why complicate it? Sure, it is a bit a cheaper and I get that, but ...

We finalized our sale and buy right before the panic set in nationwide. We thought that everything would fall apart, that our buyers would pull out, but thankfully they stayed with it.

I could not imagine working from home with Dolley, the two boys, and the dog in a house half as big as this one.

Homes are going up so fast that when they have "issues" with them the builders will buy them back and build another replacement in another neighborhood...

Posted by: Silent at November 03, 2020 09:02 AM (CrU4U)

678 Dave, do you adjust your projection during the day? Do you get any turnout or other data today to let us know how it is going?

At what point if turnout is lower than expected (I know it looks unlikely from what we are seeing), do you start to change your projection for any state?
Posted by: I come here for Dave's comments
--------------
No, I will live and die on what I posted above. My predictions are based on turnout models and looking at actual votes cast. If the turnout is on par with 2016 (including the voter registration increases) or higher, then Trump will win easily.

The only way there is a problem is if there is very low turnout today, which early reports say we aren't getting.

I'll keep up during the day on turn out in key areas, like Collier County Florida. I'm looking for red strongholds to show up at the polls.

Blue areas I'm looking for low turnout. So seeing that no one was in line in Fairfax VA is a good sign. Youth and Black vote is way down, and we want them to stay down today.

So today, I just get to watch and see if I was right.

Conventional wisdom from market friends who know things is that Biden will dump even more debt into propping up the markets than Trump has so it will likely go even higher if he wins. That's why the market hasn't been much of an indicator this election cycle. Either way it goes up.

So liberal, I dont think any of the guys are telling their wives. I called them on it for fun but it still seems to mean something. Not that WA will go for Trump.

Also, I find it hilarious that all 3 wives (who are white) rant and rave about how racist Trump is and their husbands are voting for him. (Probably their first R vote ever.)

891 Looking at Facebook, they've added a helpful post on elections from the trustworthy-sounding "Bipartisan Policy Center", which I'm sure is a leftist front. They'd like you to know that:

"When going to vote, you have certain rights (that aren't described)"

"Some election results may not be available for days or weeks. This means things are happening as expected" funny how it hasn't been an issue in all the other elections of the modern era.

"In most states, poll observers are appointed, and watching the polls is against the law for everyday citizens." Ah yes, the government will appoint watchdogs over itself. Totally trustworthy!

905 voting report from our tiny town in west central Wisconsin:

I was in the first 10 in line when the polls opened, antifa / blm nowhere to be seen, all calm and orderly.
Everyone was grateful for the reasonably nice weather for standing in line; mostly masked, some not, poll workers were not enforcing the 'everyone must wear a mask' signs. One voter at a time inside the polling place, show your ID, sign the book, fill out the ballot and feed it into the machine, which then dumped it into a sealed container
Paper ballots like an old-time test paper, fill-in-the-circle style, the same form as an absentee ballot for ease of counting all the absentee ballots along with the in-person ones from today.
Exit-poller was present but didn't ask me anything.

In short, all was well, now it's just waiting for the results.

For the record I am still expecting a Red Tsunami of epic proportions.

Early voting in TX yielded more votes than all of 2016, so there's a chance that today's turnout will be small because of it. Especially in more rural areas.

Over 700,000 more people early voted than all of 2016 votes cast.

967 >>Just found out that 3 of my friends back in Washington State are voting Trump. . . Not that WA will go for Trump.



After 2016, blue state residents (myself included) know that you must vote to be included in the national results. Thanks to Hillary and activists trying to abolish the Electoral College, we have to make sure they don't overcount support for the Dem candidate. No more sitting out because your state's not a contest.

968 Patton's chaplin must have written the weather prayer for the US last night, because by God, the nation is enjoying very favorable temperatures and little rain so that the army of voters swelling the poles for Trump can do so unimpeded.

BREAKING: Voting machines in a New York City polling place broken & completely locked; this is after opening 30 minutes late.

Those machines will be reopened at 8PM with a few thousand votes each on them. That was a typical NJ play back when they'd use the older style machine, Dems might be trying to reach in to their bag of tricks in order to again boost the overall numbers for Biden so they can scream about PV vs. EC, easier to just steal votes in states you're assured of winning, where no one is watching, since New York going 64% for Biden instead of 63% won't really make people suspicious.

970 I've been a lurker here (for the most part) for at least 15 years. This place got me through the debacles of 06, 08, and 2012. And then came 2016. Just wanted to pop in and say how much I enjoy the comments. I'm looking forward to a fun evening.

971 Dave in FLA - you are a National Treasure, well, at least an AoS Treasure for sure. Thanks for your excellent efforts.

What if they're doing it to suppress votes that could actually give Trump a chance even in New York?

One neighborhood I see is heavily Jewish - Flatbush/Midwood. Where I grew up. You know that a lot of folks there are voting Trump.

973 Ok I just voted in my blue Hell. Everything ran quickly although earlier the poll person told me there was a long line.

@PhillyGOP

Certified Republican poll watchers are being kicked out of Mitchum Wilson Funeral Home, Wharton Rec Center, AND Greater Mt. Sinai Baptist Church. Watchers are told their certification doesn't mean anything. @CouncilmemberKJ , what's going on in your district?

Send in the lawyers.

This was expected so I'm sure they are on it. They should have made sure they didn't get kicked out in the first place as this is one of the methods the Dems always use.

979 I voted at 10:00 AM in a distant Atlanta suburb. No wait for me at all.

980 I voted against that asshole AG in Pennsylvania this morning. The idiot who said if all the votes are counted in PA then Biden wins. Fuck that guy.

981 My attempt to help reach 1,000:

I voted straight GOP, but I'm concerned about a state legislator who is running for election.

NONE of his signs or mailings mentioned his party affiliation. I had to check his website.

Also, his mailings were all about school funding.

I fear we have a RINO on the ballot.

available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.
