Rick Scott Launches Lawsuit, Demands Investigation of Liberal Election Officials. Here’s Why.

Wow.

Published

on

Florida Gov. Rick Scott does not play around when it comes to fraud, which he alleges is being conducted by “unethical liberals” in two deep blue counties that seem to be producing more and more ballots out of thin air.

The reason this is such a big deal is because Florida law requires reporting and transparency about all outstanding ballots, a legal obligation that’s apparently not being met by the counties in question.

Scott, who is locked in a tight race for U.S. Senate with incumbent Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson, filed lawsuits Thursday against the supervisors of elections in Broward County and Palm Beach County, Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher, for “rampant fraud” and is calling on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate their actions.

Scott currently leads Nelson by fewer than 22,000 votes. He once had a more sizable lead, but Broward County has continued to release more results while failing to adequately disclose their ballot counts. The margin, which is only 0.2 percent, has triggered an automatic machine recount required for results with a margin of less than 0.5 percent.

“Every day since the election the left-wing activists in Broward County have been coming up with more and more ballots out of nowhere,” Scott told the press Thursday, ABC reports. “I will not sit idly by while unethical liberals try and steal this election from the great people of Florida,” he added.

Scott’s legal challenge has been joined by the National Republicans Senatorial Committee (NRSC), which likewise filed suits against both Snipes and Bucher.

Apparently, Snipes has a rich history of violating voting laws, something that was recently detailed in the Sun Sentinel:

The Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office violated state and federal laws by destroying ballots from a 2016 Congressional race too soon — and while the ballots were the subject of a lawsuit against the office, a judge has ruled. … The decision stems from Canova’s bid to unseat Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the Democratic primary, a race he lost convincingly, at about 57 percent to 43 percent, or 28,809 votes to 21,907.

Canova, who was checking for voting irregularities in the race, sought to look at the paper ballots in March 2017 and took Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes to court three months later when her office hadn’t fulfilled his request. Snipes approved the destruction of the ballots in September, signing a certification that said no court cases involving the ballots were pending.

Snipes was fined for over $200,000 and her office was placed under close watch by the Department of State.

At the end of the day, this is definitely something that needs to be investigated, as the very integrity of our voting system is at stake in such matters.

One of the ways our republic functions is by allowing the people to govern themselves by having an active role in choosing their representatives. When the system that makes that possible comes under attack, it threatens the voice of the people.

The left, who tend to think they’re worldview is what’s best for the country, will do anything, including lie, cheat, and steal, in order to push their agenda. It’s critical then, that any time there appears to be fraud, especially in deep Democrat territory, it be investigated immediately.

Let’s hope the truth comes out and the voice of the people is protected from those who wish to corrupt it.

Enormous Confederate Carving Subject of Renewed Debate

Will Stone Mountain be vanquished by an army of virtue signalers?

Published

Over the course of the last several years, and with a vast acceleration in 2020, municipalities around the nation have been removing, renaming, and re-dedicating a number of Confederate monuments now deemed offensive in the wake of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Not everyone is a fan of the move, however, with opponents often suggesting that this is a revision of history, and that these men were also American soldiers, in a way. Now, one of the largest Confederate monuments in the world, the carving on the side of Stone Mountain in Georgia, is facing renewed calls for removal. Crowds are growing larger at the monthly meetings of the Georgia board considering what to do about the giant carving of Confederacy leaders in Stone Mountain. But officials seem no closer to an answer. The Stone Mountain Memorial Association decided to make a few changes last month, but they weren’t enough to placate people who want the monument removed. A museum exhibit will tell the story of the carving, as well as the site’s ties to the Ku Klux Klan. But having to make those decisions could increase the volume and the pressure on the board, NPR reports. Critics have pointed out that the carving is a modern piece, and not a relic of a bygone era. “Where we go from there?” asked the board’s chairman, the Rev. Abraham Mosley. “I don’t know.” Putting the site in a Georgia context seems like a challenge. None of the three men—Confederate Gens. Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, and Confederacy President Jefferson Davis—was from the area, and no battles were fought there. As a piece of history, it’s not that historic, having been completed in 1972. The monument sits within Stone Mountain Park, an amusement park of sorts, that has lost a number…

Russia Continues Harassment of American Military Just 35 Miles Off US Coast

That’s a little too close for comfort.

Published

on

When it comes to dealing with Russia, much of the US policy is straightforward, and likely on account of the fact that the Kremlin has been pulling the same, silly stunts for decades now. In fact, it’s getting a little stale. Russia loves to use her military as a nuisance to the United States, posing danger at times, certainly, but most often just being undeniably annoying. This week was no exception. Russia’s defense ministry has announced it sunk an aircraft carrier just 35 miles off the coast of Hawaii in a huge war games exercise that has alarmed the US. At least 20 Russian warships, submarines, and support vessels, flanked by 20 fighter jets, are taking part in the exercises – the biggest since the Cold War. Russia says that they are 300 miles off the coast of Hawaii, yet unconfirmed satellite images from June 19 appear to show them much closer – within 35 miles of the U.S. state. The moves have forced the US military into action. Twice this month – on June 14 and 18 – the U.S. scrambled F-22s from Hawaii in response to Russian bomber flights. Neither time did the bombers enter the U.S. Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) perimeter, and so they were not intercepted. On June 17 the Navy admitted that the USS Carl Vinson and her strike group were operating near Hawaii, without revealing when they had arrived, or why. It has been only a few days since Russian President Vladimir Putin met with US President Joe Biden in Geneva, in a meeting that both men seemed to suggest was a success. This latest Kremlin aggression begs to differ.
