This is what the end of summer looks like here in the Valley of the Sun. It was bound to happen sooner or later, even after the kind of summer we have had here. I had just started falling asleep last night when a big whoosh of wind hit the house and a deluge of rain hit us for five minutes. After that? Nothing. But the temperatures have dropped here and it means great sleeping weather for the next five months. Arizona winter is upon us, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Lots of folks are probably wondering about what I’m thinking as far as the election results are concerned. The fact of the matter is, the mainstream media can call elections in one person’s favor or another; last time I checked, it’s the Constitution that has the say here, and until “Slo’ Joe Biden has 270 electors who are willing to go on record to confirm his status as President-elect, Donald Trump is still the President of the United States. There is zero – zero – doubt in my mind that massive fraud took place on a wide scale; we’re all just going to have to sit back and let the court challenges have their way. It might go well for Trump. It may not. But I’m willing to let the legal battles have their way.

There are five givens no matter what happens from here on out:

1. They obviously don’t care about it, but FOX News has irreparably harmed their brand with their Election Night coverage. Martha MacCallum (who I still think is a fox, BTW) is nothing but a Trump-hating shrew, and Brett Baier lost all credibility to me for not questioning their Decision Ddesk’s calling of Arizona for Biden while not calling Georgia or North Carolina. Mark my words: Trump is going to win Arizona, and FOX News’ former viewers are leaving in droves, never to return. I can tell you I will never watch it ever again. Period. (Sorry, Greg Gutfeld and Tucker Carlson)

2. I was still awake when, within the course of 45 minutes, you had vote massive vote dumps of 100K or so for Biden in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. There is zero doubt in my mind Trump won those states. Sure, it’s going to be a difficult (though not inconceivable) reach, but I think he ends up winning all those states as long as a canvas – not a recount through the machines- is taken.

3. If Biden does indeed wins, he will be a lame duck from the moment he takes the oath of office. Not only will his administration be tarnished with the stain of election illegality, but the gains Republicans made in the House and – more importantly – down ballot in state legislatures – makes his status as a one-term president a virtual certainty. Whether he is re-elected or not, Donald Trump has ignited a populist movement in the United States that is not going to go away anytime soon. Democrats are going to find out in 2022 (and 2024) what a pyrrhic victory Biden’s was.

4. Keep in mind, Trump only has to win Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Nevada to win re-election. Ask me in a week if I think this isn’t insurmountable given all the fraud that has taken place.

5. Isn’t it interesting that, even after the media proclaimed Biden the winner there wasn’t widespread rioting in cities across America? I guess that tells you everything you need to know about who the adults are in the room.

Oh, and to all you Trump haters out there: if you think The Great White Shank is having trouble sleeping, crying his eyes out, or seeking psychiatric help at the prospect of a Biden presidency, I’m sorry to disappoint you. You see, unlike you, I have a life outside of politics. My Hemingway daiquiris and Pusser’s Painkillers still taste as good, the mourning doves gathering in the late afternoon light on the wall by the pool fountain are still a joy to watch, and Pink Floyd still sounds good in the November daylight. Unlike you, my life doesn’t revolve around who happens to be the occupant in the White House at any given time. I have a life.

Man, did I get out of Massachusetts just in time.

  1. And if it is “PROVEN” by all means possible that there was no voter fraud and ballots were counted properly, then what? I have been flipping to all the channels for any information supporting massive voter fraud, even in the swing states with Republican governors, and so far there is no substantiation anything was done illegally. The main source of fraud has always been Trump and has never been substantiated and quite the opposite has been reported. Until there is actual proof I trust that my vote was counted as submitted. I trust for your sake there is no voter fraud proven as that would undermine all that our democratic system and Constitution stand for. I don’t recall any other sitting president to ever insist that their loss is due to voter fraud. Has any other sitting president ever refused to concede his loss? Has any other President elect ever won with the highest number of popular votes ever cast? I am not stating this from a political party affiliation but trusting that the people of this country made their preference known. I really would like to know what sources can verify without a doubt that voter fraud was committed because if that is true, I will never vote again.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Jana! All I can say is we’re going to find out one way or the other how much (or how little) vote fraud there was over the coming weeks when ballots are hand-counted in the states and counties where the Trump campaign suspects the numbers are fraudulent. Not sure what Trump “fraud” you’re talking about – it’s a well-known known fact that Democrats through their urban-area political machines have been committing fraud in elections for decades; heck, were it not for Mayor Daley’s Chicago machine Richard Nixon would have defeated JFK In 1960. And it hasn’t gotten any better since. For gawdsakes, this is 2020! We should be able to accurately and quickly count all votes within an hour or two of the polls closing; the fact you still have states out there counting ballots days later is bullshit.

    Me? As someone with a IT background, I’ve been wondering about all those vote dumps in Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia, and Pennsylvania that just so happened to coincide with announcements that vote counting had stopped. Sgt. Friday on Twitter has, I think, a compelling explanation here:

    One final note: as I reminded Tracey yesterday, just because certain news outlets and cable news networks have called the election for Biden means nothing. They called the election for Gore in 2000 and then had to walk it back until Florida was resolved by the Supreme Court and electors could be chosen as per the Constitution. There’s no need for Trump to do anything right now until he’s satisfied that he lost as fairly and squarely as possible to know. And as far as your comment about the winner being the one getting the highest popular vote count ever? So what? We don’t live in a democracy where the highest presidential vote-getter wins; we live in a constitutional republic where the one with the most electoral votes wins. Ask President Hillary Clinton how that works. 🙂 So I’m more than happy to just sit back and see where this goes. Nothing really has to happen until (I think) Dec. 14 when electors must be chosen.
