Here's an entire piece by Republican McBroom about the report and his involvement.


Senate Oversight Committee releases report on November 2020 General Election
June 23, 2021
Senator Ed McBroom

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Ed McBroom, chairman of the Senate Oversight Committee, on Wednesday announced the publication of the panel’s report on the November 2020 General Election in Michigan.

"LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Ed McBroom, chairman of the Senate Oversight Committee, on Wednesday announced the publication of the panel’s report on the November 2020 General Election in Michigan.

“As chair of the Senate Oversight Committee, I made it clear from the start that the investigation into the November 2020 General Election would be taken with a firm commitment to truth and a goal of reassuring the citizens of this state that their votes counted,” said McBroom, R-Waucedah Township. “People are, understandably, confused by recent changes to election laws, as well as by practices, orders and determinations made by state and local governments in response to the pandemic. They are right to demand answers and deserve nothing less than the truth amidst so much shouting and misrepresentation from both sides of the political spectrum.

“This investigation was lengthy, thorough, and revealing. We found both real vulnerabilities and resiliency within the state’s elections system. We also discovered the extent to which our elections officials go to facilitate them. The committee’s report goes into considerable detail on many of these issues, and I hope the public is reassured by the security and protections already in place, motivated to support necessary reforms to make it better, and grateful for our fellow citizens who do the hard work of conducting our elections.

“After innumerable hours over many months, watching, listening, and reading both in-person testimony and various other accounts, I am confident in asserting that the results of the November 2020 General Election in Michigan were accurately represented by the certified and audited results. However, if genuine issues arise from continued investigation, I will not hesitate to ask the committee to consider recommending an audit or amending this report in the future.

“I sincerely thank all who participated in this process — especially the concerned voters who want nothing but the best for our state and its people. An active and passionate citizenry is critical to maintaining our republic and the public’s participation has been reassuring that our system of government is alive and well in our state.”

The committee began its investigation into allegations of fraud and security failures just days after the November 2020 General Election. To date, the committee has:

Conducted nearly 30 hours of public hearings;
Heard from 87 eyewitnesses, experts and concerned citizens, many under oath;
Reviewed over 400 pages of testimony; and
Subpoenaed key documents from the secretary of state and cities of Detroit and Livonia.

Every major concern about the election was closely investigated, including compromised voting tabulators, incidents at the TCF Center in Detroit, misreporting of results from Antrim County, deceased people voting, and many more.

Vulnerabilities identified through the committee’s work are addressed in many of the 39 bills included in the election reform package that seeks to ensure the integrity of Michigan elections for generations to come.

Sorry for the repetitive postings.

Barry Pruett

You have been linking to the wrong report all day. lol. My comments stand.

"As the state’s chief election officer, the Michigan Election Law provides the Secretary of State [Democrat Jocelyn Benson] with the authority to prescribe the procedures with which audits will be conducted across the state." A democrat set the scope of the audit.

Once again Paul, you trust the government. I don’t. Republican or Democrat. I don’t trust any of them. It is quaint that you still trust these self-serving politicians. We, the People, need to verify what the government is telling us. Government auditing itself (Michigan) is good. Private individuals auditing government (Arizona) is bad. That's all you needed to tell me. Got it.

Speaking of courts Emery,, the 9TH circus court has no love for the 2ND Amend. The most overturned court in the land.

RXCross

Barry 1:43. ..." you trust the government. I don’t. Republican or Democrat. I don’t trust any of them."... I agree Barry, I don't trust any of them either. They are all on someone's payroll either via campaign donations, dark money or a suitcase full of cash. There are a few, in both parties, that offer honest government based on the people rather than the donors. But given the role of high dollar campaigns in election success, they are few and far between.

"Government auditing itself (Michigan) is good. Private individuals auditing government (Arizona) is bad."

Personally, I would rather trust a public servant, who probably makes a hundred grand a year and has their job because somewhere ing the back caverns of their minds they want to serve what they perceive to be the greater good rather than themselves, over a hired gun who is driven by partisan bias and is handsomely paid.

Come on...the Arizona audit is a sham. Cyber Ninjas is a one man act who walks in with a predetermined viewpoint (there was fraud) and a determination to find it. Looking for bamboo particles on fake Chinese ballots should sound pretty sketchy to anyone who values truth and puts the country before the party .

Actually, Trump looks pretty decent:

Shorten the time period to thirty years. You see a relatively stable number for decades, a huge increase (really huge) under Obama (64% to 103%), and then a stable number under Trump until the COVID Black Swan. The COVID situation didn't even have the same increase as the Obama years.

Honestly, I'm surprised that Obama did so poorly in this metric. I don't remember that much money being spent or taxes going down.

Bill Tozer

Good Timing, Krugman!

“Inflation panic is so last week.”

“New York Times columnist and economist Paul Krugman, writing Monday, June 21, 2021: “for those paying closer attention to the flow of new information, inflation panic is, you know, so last week. Seriously, both recent data and recent statements from the Federal Reserve have, well, deflated the case for a sustained outbreak of inflation.”

The news this morning: “A key inflation indicator that the Federal Reserve uses to set policy rose 3.4 percent in May, the fastest increase since the early 1990s, the Commerce Department reported Friday.


scenes

Poll Emery: "Debt to GDP ratio grew to 127% by the end of Trumps Pres. It was on the link you provided."

Exactly. It all happened in one fell swoop due to COVID. Essentially the same as you see in the UK.

https://tradingeconomics.com/united-kingdom/government-debt-to-gdp

or France.

https://tradingeconomics.com/france/government-debt-to-gdp

But that increase under Obama is pretty wild, and it's a lot larger than the increase even under the emergency conditions of COVID.

I need to refresh my memory on just what all Obama blew the money on. I mostly just think of him as an empty suit who could read a teleprompter well (and, like most people, favored folks who look like him). I might need to go over the Federal budget over those years.

(otoh, check out these numbers.

Also scenes did you support Trumps 7.8 trillion increase to our national debt during his 4 years?

🐟

Posted by: Paul Emery | 25 June 2021 at 08:34 AM


For somebody who claims to be a pugilist you seem you voluntarily walk into an awful lot of punches.

scenes

" Also scenes did you support Trumps 7.8 trillion increase to our national debt during his 4 years? "

To tell you the truth, I don't much care. We'll probably have to go through a destruction of the currency to get the numbers to a 'normal' level, assuming there isn't some sort of singularity style change in the economy. It'll be now or later. The Free Shit Army makes it nearly impossible to cut spending in any real sense.

It's hard to put together a financial solvent situation when the underlying culture has veered so much from WASP-style saving/working behaviors. Looking overseas, at least part of the problem has been importing too many Greeks.

scenes

To be more complete, overborrowing is only part of the problem. A lot of the over-valuing of the US currency (and the gubmints ability to borrow to keep the Free Shit Navy afloat) is based on the dollar's use as an international currency...largely based on the efforts of the 17 intelligence agencies, control of other country's resources, grossly oversized military/world police.

As that breaks down, and it always does, hilarity ensues.

Frankly, everyone should become better friends with their neighbors, attempt to learn more useful skills, and ignore the state of the government whenever possible. The .gov will do whatever it takes to keep itself on the gravy train and throw everyone else to the wolves, one by one.

Paul Emery

Re PaulE 630am - It continues as a point of humor to note that Paul never describes the economy that Trump inherited from Obama. Somehow that little disaster is always skipped over.

Was the economy that Trump inherited worse in your opinion than the one Obama inherited from Bush? Granted it was a slow recovery but it was the Great Recession as it is called under Bush and Obama inherited .

PaulE 1022am - Trump got a better economy, but harder to bring back up to par (which he did in spades), from Obama. Obama got a worse economy, but much easier to fix, from Bush2. (All he had to do was to leave it alone, instead of spending eight years throwing sand into the gears.)

To be fair, the system doesn't seem to choose great minds at this point. It's an eye opener to read speeches from the 19th C. and consider that the orators were the writers. Personally, I think of Nixon as the last heavy hitter. Biden is the product of warring tribes hoping for a profit, and his immediate staff just hopes for the best.

He's back!!! Here's some great news for the Dems, the biggest loser in modern political history is making a comeback. He's truly the Pete Rademacher of politics-start at the top and work down.

"Former President Donald Trump is bronzed, rested and politically bloodthirsty.

Having spent months in semi-retirement after his election loss in 2020, Trump is set this weekend to kick off a series of political events. Aides and confidants say the goal is to boost his standing in anticipation of a possible future run and to scratch that never-soothed itch he has for publicity. But it’s also to exact some revenge."

Biden’s Idea of ‘Unity’ Is an Infrastructure Double Cross

He reaches a “deal” with a bipartisan group of senators only to renege two hours later.

Larry Elder, the Elder Statesman, makes the Friday quotes:

Insight: “The interest of the people lies in being able to join organizations, advocate causes, and make political ‘mistakes’ without being subjected to governmental penalties.” —Justice Hugo L. Black (1886-1971)

Upright I: “What is destroying this country is not the prevalence of guns. It isn’t the police. It isn’t systemic racism. It isn’t poverty or income inequality. The problem is this country’s sick sexual culture, its marginalization of fathers and the corresponding destruction of the family. …We refuse to connect the dots, because doing so would mean admitting that the sexual revolution went off the rails. And that runs afoul of both those who make millions selling sex and those who need constant validation for their own behavior. As a result, the innocence, health and well-being of children has been sacrificed for adults’ sexual selfishness. It is no accident that girls see themselves increasingly as sexual objects or that fatherless young men, without adequate role models for healthy behaviors, fall into deeply destructive ones. Without stability, without security, without a proper sense of themselves, they seek validation in sexual conquest, belonging in gang membership, and excitement in drug use and violence.” —Laura Hollis

Upright II: “Unless one is prepared to argue that Blacks are simply genetically more inclined to commit homicide, where is the discussion about ‘root causes’? When there is a horrific urban shooting, Democrats are quick to call for more gun control legislation. Democrats, when there is an alleged case of police abuse against a Black suspect, demand police reform, with some elected officials even calling for a defunding of the police. Democrats, when it comes to disparities in homeownership or net worth, readily talk about the ‘legacy of slavery and Jim Crow,’ while failing to address, let alone explain, the increase in the rate of unmarried motherhood in America following the ‘60s 'war on poverty.’ And despite clear evidence about the relationship between crime and fatherlessness, the left does not want to talk about that 'root cause.‘” —Larry Elder

For the record: “Why would anyone, regarded by Iran’s leaders as secular infidels, think they can negotiate with religious fanatics who want them dead, and their country destroyed? How can anyone negotiate with those who want to rule and dominate the world? Do westerners sincerely believe they can sway those who proclaim to take direct orders from their god? These religious zealots believe their god wants them to pursue an agenda of death to Jews and to eliminate Israel, Western Europe and the United States. Recall it was the late Libyan dictator, Muammar Gaddafi, who suggested Islam will conquer Europe through immigration and without firing a shot. Financial advisers and brokerage firms are required by law to tell clients 'past performance is no guarantee of future results.’ In the case of Iran, past (and current) performance IS a guarantee of future results.” —Cal Thomas

Tongue-in-cheek: “Recently I learned that Critical Race Theory is NOT being taught in schools, corporations, or the military. They are only learning the most toxic parts as individual lessons. That’s totally different.” —Scott Adams

Non compos mentis: “Former president Donald Trump is America’s premier culture warrior. No other modern politician has displayed as much talent at dividing Americans, peddling disinformation, demonizing minorities and exacerbating social problems. … [Florida Governor Ron DeSantis] is setting himself up as Trump’s running mate or successor by showing a genius for appealing to every disreputable prejudice of the GOP base.” —Washington Post columnist Max Boot

Nanny state: “We can’t expect Americans to succeed if we don’t first give them the tools to do so.” —Nancy Pelosi with one of the most maternalistic comments ever

The BIG Lie: “These are all facts. I don’t do opinion. And I know — the difference for me is, I do point of view.” —CNN talkinghead Don Lemon asserting a distinction without a difference when asked if he mixes opinion with facts

Race bait I: “Speaking about, you know, the maggots — I’m sorry, the MAGA. … We have borne the brunt of being disloyal to this nation. And we have stood by to see mediocre, mealy-mouthed, snowflake white men who are incapable of taking critique, who are willing to dole out infamous repudiations of the humanity of the other and yet they call us snowflakes and they are the biggest flakes of snow to hit the Earth.” —professor Michael Eric Dyson

Race bait II: “Opposition to critical race theory is obviously rooted in racism and has just become the newest dog whistle for racists.” —Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib

Missing the forest for the trees: “I personally find it offensive that we are accusing the United States military … of being quote ‘woke’ or something else because we’re studying some theories [like CRT] that are out there.” —Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley

And last… “It has been edifying to learn over the course of … 24 hours that in the view of this administration, the military exists primarily to serve two functions: social engineering via CRT education, and nuking Americans who have guns.” —Ben Shapiro

WOW!! I sure lit the fuse, and ran out the door.(So the LIB tax man can take it out of my hide.)
You still don't get it. It real simple. You never give a rats ass about LIB spending.. NEVER. You just whine and complain ONLY when it's a Repub. doing any.

So your just a hypocritical two faced bastard.
Hw many times did I ask you if Trump should have shut the government down to get a better deal on spending? Did I ever get an answer from you? F*ck no.

State PTA Threatens To Disband Magnet School PTA After Its Asian Parents Reject Anti-Merit Woke Policies

Parents were shocked. “The fact that a white woman is actively working to install another white woman into a position of additional authority over the will of a majority of minority parents is shocking and disturbing and a reflection once more of the unwelcome and hostile environment in FCPS against minority parents who dare to speak up,” Asra Nomani, a previous member of the EC, wrote.

“The Virginia PTA likes its Asian and minority parents when we are submissive and compliant, but when we question FCPS policies or actions, you turn on the parents.”

On Wednesday, the state PTA interceded again, writing to all parents that the state organization would take steps to shut down the group because of a “disregard for the authority of Virginia PTA” (notwithstanding that the parents had a “majority vote”).

https://currently.att.yahoo.com/news/biden-celebrates-infrastructure-deal-at-white-house-191727472.html

But during his Thursday remarks at the White House, Biden said he expected the deal to make its way to his desk, and praised several Republican senators for their work in the negotiations, including Mitt Romney of Utah, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine.

“Mitt Romney has never broken his word to me. You know, the senator from Alaska, the senator from Maine, they’ve never broken their word,” said Biden, who was accompanied by Vice President Kamala Harris. “They’re friends. The people I was with today are people that I trust.”

Administrivia - I draw your kind attention to the 'Juneteenth' piece addendum.

scenes

Ms.Cross: "Here is an idea.. why don't you people stick your heads in the sand and put on your trumpphones so you don't have to hear any real news stories you don't like."

I'd say that the major problem is that the 'Right' (whatever that means anymore), ranging from just reg'lar tradesmen to the occasional torch-bearing Evilguy, simply don't produce much news currently.

We've been drowning in the crazy takeover of schools, statue tumbling and building burning, Men In Dresses, and now President Potato going through his predictable political payoffs, for some time. I'm super sorry that Buffalo Horn Guy (and the 200 or so other folks kept in isolation for wandering into the Capitol) and the murder of Ms. Babbitt by the unnamed mall cop just don't produce enough novel controversy at this point.

About all that's left will be the inevitable anti-Trump lawfare via highly politicized state attorneys, and really that ain't much and hard to get excited about.

If Trump gets rolling again as a political figure, there might be something to talk about. In the meantime I'm afraid it's just the ongoing destruction of the West by the Woke. Ms. Cross, perhaps you could bring up some international news. It'll probably require an international newspaper or something like RT.

“If Trump gets rolling again as a political figure, there might be something to talk about.”

No need to do your homework Emery, someone did it for you.
Told ya' Biden was full of shit.
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/06/26/fact-check-biden-falsely-claims-you-couldnt-buy-a-cannon-under-2nd-amendment/
"Biden said, “The Second Amendment, from the day it was passed, limited the type of the people who could own a gun [and] what type of weapon you could own. You couldn’t buy a cannon.”

Biden’s claim about not being allowed to purchase cannons is not new. He made it on May 21, 2020, and it was, at that time, shown to be false by PolitiFact.

PolitiFact noted Biden comparing “assault weapons” to cannons, saying: “They have no rationale for being owned by individuals on the street. They should be outlawed… From the very beginning you weren’t allowed to have certain weapons. You weren’t allowed to own a cannon during the Revolutionary War as an individual.”

Julie Anne Sweet, director of military studies at Baylor University, told PolitiFact: “It seems highly unlikely that there were restrictions on the private ownership [of cannons].”

Independent Institute’s Dave Kopel told PolitiFact, “I am not aware of a ban on any arm in colonial America.”"

That was a LIE Emery.. Now what was your stance on liars again?
