  1. Like Cuomo and Wolf, Murphy has much to hide. These deaths are on them.

    “After NorthJersey.com request over veterans homes mask issue, NJ sends redacted emails”

    “In response to a public records request by The Record and NorthJersey.com for communication within the Murphy administration over a lack of mask-wearing at the state veterans home as the COVID pandemic spread in the spring, the state has released a handful of new emails, but they are so heavily redacted that it’s impossible to know what they might say.

    The short string of emails released by the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office include communications between Jared Doherty, an attorney for the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, and officials in Murphy’s office regarding face masks.

    Emails released earlier this year under prior records requests by The Record and NorthJersey.com showed that on March 26, Doherty told Elizabeth Schiff-Heedles, the CEO of the Menlo Park veterans home at the time, that he would draft an order barring a longtime nurse from wearing masks or handing them out to her staff. The next day, Doherty said he received guidance from the governor’s Office of Employee Relations about how to discipline nurses caught taking and using masks without permission.

    The Record and NorthJersey.com made three requests via the state’s Open Public Records Act, or OPRA, for communication between Doherty and the governor’s office over the mask policy. All three were denied for being “over broad” — even though each new request asked for more specific documents than the one before it.”

    “Now the state has released new emails in response to those requests, but they are so thoroughly redacted — right down to the subject line — that there’s no way to know what they actually might reveal. State officials blacked out nearly everything aside from pleasantries, email addresses and a brief description of the Menlo Park Memorial Veterans Home, where the virus eventually killed at least 63 residents and a nurses’ aide.”

    A Georgia judge—the sister of former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams—refused to recuse herself from an election case, instead ruling against the purge of more than 4,000 voters from state rolls before the Jan. 5 runoffs that will decide which party controls the Senate.”

    The 11-page ruling by US District Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner on Monday came after two counties voted to remove a tranche of names from their voter rosters based on two separate complaints that alleged that public voter registration data matched unverified change-of-address records by the US Postal Service.”

    “Newt Gingrich: Democrats Are Using Schools to Brainwash the Young

    “a Democratic party driven by a cultural belief system that they’re now trying to drive through the school system so they can brainwash the entire next generation”

    “Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said in a recent interview that the Democrats use the education system to brainwash the next generation.

    When we see classical literature removed from curricula and teachers making crazy race-based demands, it’s hard to disagree.

    Carly Roman writes at the Washington Examiner:

    Newt Gingrich: Democrats will ‘brainwash the entire next generation if they can get away with it’

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said the Democratic Party is weaponizing the U.S. education system to convert young hearts and minds to its ideology.

    The Georgia Republican delivered the scathing assessment of his political opponents in an interview with the Guardian on Tuesday.

    “What you have, I think, is a Democratic Party driven by a cultural belief system that they’re now trying to drive through the school system so they can brainwash the entire next generation if they can get away with it,” he said…

    “You look at these Democratic governors who are petty dictators, and you look at the challenges facing us — whether it’s a collapsing education system, a collapsing infrastructure, [or] competing with China — and you know that the Democrats, as the party of government employee unions and liberalism, aren’t going to be able to deal with any of this,” he added.”

    “Lies, Damned Lies, And Insane Statistics

    By the same standard of statistical analysis that the left applies to everything, it is easy to prove that the election was stolen from Donald Trump.”

    “The presidential election is all but over now—“all but” because it was so obviously stolen that there is still a chance truth and justice will prevail, with Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) yesterday becoming the first senator to announce plans to object to congressional certification, which will force the House and Senate to vote on whether to uphold Biden’s contested victory in the Electoral College. The wokies are beyond ecstatic, humming “Hail to the Chief” whenever they think of Joe Biden—or even Hunter Biden, China Joe’s son, under investigation by the Justice Department since late 2018.

    The woke media—a media too corrupt to print, during the presidential campaign, stories of the Biden family’s years of corruption—was oh, so uninterested in the statistical disparities in voting that clearly indicated election fraud. They were willing to bear any burden, pay any price, including the traducing of democracy, to get rid of Donald Trump.

    Let’s face it: everyone who pays attention to politics knows the election was stolen. Here’s how you can tell.

    A 35-page report issued by Peter Navarro, assistant to the president, director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, and national Defense Production Act policy coordinator, lists a number of statistical anomalies in the battleground states, including significant changes in absentee ballot rejection rates from previous elections, and excessively high voter turnout (at times exceeding 100 percent).

    The Navarro report says that “in Nevada, the overall rejection rate dropped from 1.6% in 2016 to 0.58% in 2020. In Pennsylvania, the 2016 rejection rate of 1.0% dropped to virtually nothing at 0.28%. The biggest fall in the overall absentee ballot rejection rate came, however, in Georgia. Its rejection rate fell from 6.8% in 2016 to a mere 0.34% in 2020.”

    And the report says, “In the 2020 race, Georgia election officials received 1,320,154 mail-in and absentee ballots. If these ballots had been rejected at the 2016 rate of 6.8% instead of the 2020 rate of 0.34%, there would have been 81,321 ballots rejected instead of the 4,489 ballots that were actually rejected.

    “Under the conservative assumption that 60% of these mail-in and absentee ballots went to Joe Biden, this dramatic fall in the rejection rate provided Joe Biden with an additional 16,264 votes. That’s more than the margin of the alleged Biden victory in Georgia.”

    The Navarro report also says, “Cybersecurity executive and former NASA analyst, Russ Ramsland, testified that in Wayne County, Michigan, where Dominion Voting Systems equipment was used, 46 out of 47 precincts in the county displayed greater than a 96% voter turnout. 25 out of those precincts showed a 100% voter turnout.”

    Ah, yes, the wokies say, but those are just statistics. We didn’t see any actual evidence of fraud, and man can’t live by statistics alone. But in fact, wokies have been living by statistics for decades. Look at their claims of racial profiling by police and by housing lenders.

    Justice O’Connor may have given birth to the statistical disparity business in Richmond v. J. A. Croson Co. (1989) when she wrote: “Where there is a significant statistical disparity between the number of qualified minority contractors willing and able to perform a particular service and the number of such contractors actually engaged by the locality or the locality’s prime contractors, an inference of discriminatory exclusion could arise.”

    It’s been statistics ever since.”

  6. What good is a signature audit if it is based on two false signatures?
    If a mail in voter registration requiring no check of ID is on file and then an absentee ballot is sent in with a signature that matches what was on the voter registration, well, what good is that? The claim for one county here is nearly 100% match. Interesting what the news focus is on and what is lacking from the reporting.

  7. There has never been anything close to the extensive national election fraud found in this election. This was truly massive – millions and millions of votes throughout many states.

    This election was decided by printing presses, Dominion voting system algorithms, and Democrat crooks. President Trump won, and he actually won by a landslide.

  8. From a friend’s post on Facebook:
    “It was a loooong line, but we voted!

    There was a whole “social change” booth in the parking lot. I’ve never seen such deceitful political advertising as I have this election season. Righting all racial tensions and helping the underprivileged sounds like such a great thing. I think everyone who knows me knows I love people of all backgrounds and want to bless them all. But the change democratic candidates here are really about is socialism–redistributing all wealth. In the end, that does not help anyone. It goes against biblical principles of working for food (2 Thessalonians 3:10), sloth leading to poverty (Proverbs 13:4, Proverbs 12:24), etc. Not to mention God’s call for helping the poor is to individuals, not the government (the government’s roll is to punish evil doers (Romans 13:4)), and that government overspending goes against the biblical principle of living within one’s means.

    And even more concerning, the social change the democratic party is proposing is a change in a society where murder of babies is encouraged, disregarding God’s design for marriage is celebrated, and any business or nonprofit who faithfully preaches God’s Word on these issues is silenced.

    Please, please, please look beyond the surface of the political ads. I’ve included in this post a short summary of where the candidates stand on issues. Please look, compare the positions to biblical ones, and then go vote–and pray. We all need to individually and corporately turn from any sin and seek God’s face, that He might have mercy. God will be God whatever the outcome, but as His people, we should use whatever is in our power to promote laws that line up with His Word.

    (And if you’re not in Georgia but would be interested in helping get the vote out, let me know. You can make calls from anywhere…and above all, pray.)”

  10. Why should she recuse? Her sister isn’t running for office here.

    I don’t understand the signature matching for absentee votes….does this expose your secret vote? My signature is a scrawl and often doesn’t match depending on when and where i sign something. It seems a fairly weak item to use to guard against fraud. And an easy way to disqualify votes and voters you don’t like. A rejection rate of over 5% based on signature is obviously voter suppression. Oregon has 100% mail in votes — do they have a high rejection rate? Many countries have internet voting as well as mail in voting without signature requirements — looking from the outside, I see an opportunity of voter suppression with this requirement.

    Anyway — here’s hoping 2021 is better than 2020 and we learn to get along. Enjoy your new year.

  11. Tychicus, I saw your answer yesterday. Thanks. I figured that’s what they were claiming, but it wasn’t explicit in the article, nor (that I saw) did they offer any actual proof. Example: When I worked on yearbook, I heard that the year before I was editor, students came in to get yearbook photos using false names, just a practical joke really, and one college students are entitled to try.

    The problem is twofold: One, the reports I heard from the year before had students getting away with using false names with double entendres in them, and that wasn’t going to happen on my watch. Two, you get enough false names, and you’re wasting yearbook pages. So I figured they were playing a game and hoping not to get caught. I played the game too–and caught them. I looked up every student in the student directory, and pulled any photos that weren’t in the directory. All the photos that got pulled (and there were a good number of them; this is apparently a common prank), I called student development to verify whether the person was actually a student. A few were, and they made it into the yearbook, but the ones that didn’t show up in either the directory or student development’s records were discarded.

    I was looking for the article to say that the researchers something like that. They took random names from the list, every fifth name or whatever, and looked up a thousand names in state records, voting records themselves if they had access. But it never said that. It only said that a lot of them were names that only one person in the state had. Well, that looks “suspicious,” but I have no idea how many names are unique. The same with a lower incidence of names such as Smith. Noting that the names look like funny business is involved is only the first step. If I’d been editing that piece, I would have told the writer we can’t publish it. You’ve only suggested a hypothesis; you haven’t proved it, or even given any real evidence. Come back with evidence, and we’ll publish it.

  13. 40% of LA healthcare workers are refusing the vaccines.

    https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-12-31/healthcare-workers-refuse-covid-19-vaccine-access

    “They are frontline workers with top-priority access to the COVID-19 vaccine, but they are refusing to take it.

    At St. Elizabeth Community Hospital in Tehama County, fewer than half of the 700 hospital workers eligible for the vaccine were willing to take the shot when it was first offered. At Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills, one in five frontline nurses and doctors have declined the shot. Roughly 20% to 40% of L.A. County’s frontline workers who were offered the vaccine did the same, according to county public health officials.

    So many frontline workers in Riverside County have refused the vaccine — an estimated 50% — that hospital and public officials met to strategize how best to distribute the unused doses, Public Health Director Kim Saruwatari said.

    The vaccine doubts swirling among healthcare workers across the country come as a surprise to researchers, who assumed hospital staff would be among those most in tune with the scientific data backing the vaccines.”
