Well, with the usual places having polling booths going off line (still can do drop off, it will be counted when they get to it) in Pennsylvania and Maricopa County, AZ and with wrong ballots already sent out…..well, the best line I have heard so far is ‘with all this delayed vote counting, when will we know when democracy ends?’

Maricopa County, Arizona, Experiences Large Number Of Voting Machine ‘Malfunctions’ Early Tuesday

https://www.dailywire.com/news/maricopa-county-arizona-experiences-large-number-of-voting-machine-malfunctions-early-tuesday

What I say, what in the tarnation is going on? Katie Hobbs is Sec of State. She only has one friggin job to do. Just one. Not complicated. She spent just 19 days at her office in the last six months and boy does it ever show. Man does it. And she is running for Governor of The Great State of Arizona! Unbelievable.

Have liked two things in the AZ gov’s race so far.
1) The Dems poured millions (invested) into Kari Lake and other extremists’ MAGA Election Deniers R primary candidates to make sure THEY choose for us who will win the primaries. Some will win tonight, some will lose. Err…some will win tonight, some will lose in a couple weeks.
2) Really liked it when right after the primaries with Hobbs ditching Lake and Kari walked right into a Hobbs Townhall and sat down and Hobbs saw her and left the stage and hid in the back and refused to come out until Kari was removed from the building, ROFLMAO.

‘If we couldn’t laugh, we would all go insane.’ Run Forrest run! Run Herschel run!

From your man on the scene in Idaho:
My gorgeous wife and I headed over this morning at our usual time of voting after breakfast to the Mormon Church nearby to push all the buttons and get a virtue signalling sticker (I Voted!) for our foreheads.
Whoa! There was a 1/2 hour wait in line. Had never seen such a crowd in years! Maybe everyone had the same idea of when to vote this year? Dunno. We used to vote when the polls opened in Nevada County and then hie over to the South Pine and pig out. Sigh.
Maybe a week from now we can get a few official results. The only drama in ID is how many votes Bundy can draw away from Brad Little in the governor's race.
Stay tuned!

What's the story behind the poll watcher v. Election orificer kerfuffle? Can't find it in The Union.

Bill Tozer

Well, I am disappointed. Red Wave turned to red ripple, the wave started and stopped in FL, and all the other stories. And it was generally a good night for incumbents, always hard to replace. I should have taken Dr. Rebane’s two analyses more seriously about data of the American voter. But, it never a good idea to blame have the country. :).

Or, I should have listened to my own counsel and not taken off the armor before the real battle begins.
Disappointed, yet not discouraged. Lots of lemonade to make. Another member of Nancy’s chosen for her select committee went down. NY district. First DCCC chairperson to go down in 40 years. See, lemonade!

DeSantis took 55% of the Puerto Rican vote and I amused myself visualizing AOC’s mother and aunt as being part of that 55%.

WITH THE DISCLAIMER OUT OF THE WAY, it ain’t over til the lady sings.

Fetterman Wins, Laxalt Pulls Ahead, Senate Hangs in the Balance

“Three other Senate races remained too close to call as of Wednesday morning: Arizona, Georgia, and Wisconsin. If Wisconsin Republican Sen.

No that I'm trolling the fascists...but...any doubt that Nevada County is a "blue" county, a topic which has been opt debated here, is over. It's blue. What a hoot!

You have to wait. Punchy will be gearing up for that, looking for any takers, in a day or two. At least he waits and waits until all the voting is counted….besides the few outstanding. Patience. Grass Hopper, patience. I know your brain is squiring like….like a toad.

Once again Nevada County is solid blue. That's not news, it's an established fact.

Solid blue? We're 41% Dem and Green registrations in Nirvana County, meaning 59% not on the left. Centrist and Right. Not Fascist... that's the Democrats and their minions, Steven.

"Gregory emulates his hero Trump in that he hates to lose and will embarrass himself in the process..."

This is purely false and defamatory, easily disproven. I've been registered Libertarian for 42 years; if I hated to lose, I'd have switched parties to one that might win years ago.

And, again, I've not voted for Trump. Never, meaning not ever. And I've never changed registration to vote in another party's primary. But then, you knew that and lied about me anyway.

If you show me a couple of examples of your being critical of Trump I might consider changing my mind. It's up to you.

By the way even our host acknowledges Nevada County is a Blue County.

Here's a quote from todays post:

"RR has acknowledged for years that the county is blue, not quite as badly as California, but close enough for government work."

Gregory

So, in "quote from this post"'s view at 1pm, not being known to be critical of Trump is equivalent to supporting Trump?

You are a blithering idiot. I have never written anything that any sentient being could ever bend to "Gregory emulates his hero Trump" which was your claim.

Do you support the efforts of states that have legalized abortion through State laws in this weeks elections. As I recall you had no particular problem with legalized abortion as long as it is adopted on a State level.

George Rebane

PaulE 305pm - Yes.

Gregory

Punchy, do you think a woman should have the right to decide to change from a live birth to an abortion when the baby is crowning?

That's what was voted on yesterday.

Gregory

"I want it dead now!"

Paul Emery

That's not the way the law is applied in California Gregory. Do your research and get back to me. Show me one example of that happening.

Gregory

It hasn't been in the California constitution before, Punch. This is brand new.

If the baby (aka a bunch of cells) are within a woman's body, she now has a right to abort, until the baby draws a breath outside the birth canal.

I thought you knew.

Scott O

re the issue of CA prop 1 - it does look like it will open up a can of worms and not in ways that were intended.
Since abortion is already legal in CA, it's a fair question to ask why the need? If there is a federal ban it doesn't protect at all. If CA goes that far to the conservative side that the courts will rule abortion illegal then prop 1 will have already been stripped right back out of the constitution via another prop. So - it "protects" nothing. So - why have it on the ballot?
It does a good job of ginning up fervor in the howler monkey sector of possible voters who might otherwise be too stupefied by drugs or the Home Shopping Channel to be bothered to vote.
It also (most importantly) opens the legal door to partial birth abortion.
However - the door is now also open to the father of the un-born child to assert his rights. Gender is not mentioned in the text and the law cannot discriminate according to gender.
There are lots of lawyers in CA with time on their hands and agendas to see to. Paul's usual idiocy of "it hasn't happened yet, so it will never happen" is on full display here. We will wait and see.

Steven Frisch

AS usual, Gregory is full of shit when he says, "If the baby (aka a bunch of cells) are within a woman's body, she now has a right to abort, until the baby draws a breath outside the birth canal."

"California Health and Safety Code 123466. The state shall not deny or interfere with a pregnant person's right to choose or obtain an abortion prior to viability of the fetus, or when the abortion is necessary to protect the life or health of the pregnant person."

‘Democrats Muddy The Waters To Ensure Support For California’s Late-Term Abortion Amendment’

“Proponents of the bill, such as California Attorney General Rob Bonta, say Proposition 1 does not lead to late-term abortions but simply enshrines the constitutional “right to abortion.” On the contrary, the language is vague and lacks specifics. In fact, one doctor who contributed to authoring the amendment is on the record explaining the vague language was “on purpose.

Dr. Pratima Gupta, a San Diego OB-GYN who consulted on Proposition 1, told KQED they intentionally left out the word “viability” — the key descriptor in determining the limit, if any, at which point during gestation an abortion can legally be performed.

“Every pregnancy is individual and it’s a continuum,” Gupta said. “If I see a patient who has broken their bag of water at 23 weeks of pregnancy, that doesn’t mean that it’s viable or not viable.”

Under laws already on the books such as the California Reproductive Privacy Act of 2003, abortion is limited to “before the viability of the fetus.” The text of Proposition 1 would embed a “fundamental right to choose to have an abortion” without any limits or qualifications about the viability of the baby. California’s own Voter Information Guide states that the amendment “will allow unrestricted late-term abortions” and “will allow late-term abortions at taxpayer expense without limitation for any reason at any time up to the moment of birth — even when the mother’s life is not in danger, even when the healthy baby could survive outside the womb.”

Catherine Hadro, director of media relations for the “No on Prop. 1” campaign, told The Federalist that even some pro-abortion Californians are against the amendment because they fear future court battles will lead to more restrictions on California abortion laws.”

https://thefederalist.com/2022/11/04/democrats-gin-up-false-emergency-to-ensure-support-for-californias-extreme-late-term-abortion-amendment/

Drop the words ‘viability’ and ‘non-viability’, call it health and there you are with at last second before birth abortion and even infanticide.

Here’s A List Of Major GOP Wins From Last Night That Legacy Media Won’t Tell You About

https://thefederalist.com/2022/11/09/heres-a-list-of-major-gop-wins-from-last-night-that-legacy-media-wont-tell-you-about/

Today I received a text thanking me from somebody named Markwayne Mullin.

“Thank you so much for your support! Without you, we could not have done it. Now on to the Senate!—Markwayne Mullin”

Of ya, I forgot the Okie a few dollars. Forgot his name, lol.

Markwayne Mullin has made history as the first tribal citizen to win election to the U.S. Senate in nearly two decades.
With more than 93 percent of precincts reporting, Mullin received nearly 63 percent of the vote as of late Tuesday night, according to unofficial results from the Oklahoma State Election Board. His Democratic challenger Kendra Horn only had about 34 percent — too far behind to overcome the Republican victor’s lead.
“There isn’t a person in this room that has sat back and done nothing,” Mullin, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation, said in an election victory speech at the Stokely Event Center in Tulsa. “You guys have all been involved. You guys have all been in this fight with us…….
(.)
During his time in the House, Mullin has been a part of the Congressional Native American Caucus, a bipartisan group of lawmakers that works to advance Indian Country legislation. In the 117th Congress, the current session, he is one of five tribal citizens in the chamber — a record number, though the fifth just joined after a historic special election in September. Overall, six lawmakers of American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian origin are serving, a first in U.S. history.
But once he’s sworn into the Senate in January 2023, Mullin will be the sole tribal citizen there. He referred to himself as the “only true Native American in the Senate when I get elected” during the 39th annual National Tribal Health Conference in D.C. on September 28.

Though the event, which was hosted by the National Indian Health Board, was not technically a campaign stop, his speech marked one of the few times he has spoken about Indian issues during his Senate run. He highlighted his efforts to bring adequate funding to the Indian Health Service, the federal agency that serves more than 2.5 million American Indians and Alaska Natives across the country.

“I don’t care if you’re Republican or Democrat, I don’t care,” Mullin told tribal health leaders in the nation’s capital, after noting that he has received care from the IHS in the past.

“When we’re fighting for Indian Country, we’re fighting for Indian Country,” Mullin said. “And that’s first.””

Well, he do better and honor his roots better than Lizzy Warren anyday. Warren looks like she just stepped off the Mayflower.

Here's details on the current law on abortion right in California recently signed by Newsom.


"4. How late can you have an abortion in California?

There is no strict cut-off date as to when a pregnancy may be terminated. But absent special circumstances, abortion services cannot be performed once the fetus becomes viable. By definition, a fetus becomes viable if it is likely to sustain survival outside of the uterus. It has to be able to survive without extraordinary medical measures.10

Doctors determine whether a given fetus is viable. They make this decision on a case-by-case basis.11

Typically, a fetus becomes viable around the 23rd week of pregnancy. Doctors also consider a fetus to be viable once it weighs at least 500 grams.12"

What we have here is a failure to communicate.
———-
Scott O @ 7:38 pm

But…but…..but He is soo authentic! His authenticity is what attracts people to him.

MSNBC’s Katy Tur suggests Fetterman could run for president: 'Makes you wonder about his future'
Tur suggested that Fetterman gaining more support in Pennsylvania's deep red areas makes him a potential candidate for president

Where to begin? Fetterman buys a house and land with his non-profit parent’s money for $75,000 in Braddock, Pennsylvania. House didn’t cost nothing after selling himself back the land for $75,000. Anyway, let’s scratch the surface, shall we.

“Braddock's first industrial facility, a barrel plant, opened in 1850.[6][dead link] The borough was incorporated on June 8, 1867.[7] The town's industrial economy began in 1873, when Andrew Carnegie built the Edgar Thomson Steel Works on the historic site of Braddock's Field in what is now North Braddock, Pennsylvania. This was one of the first American steel mills which used the Bessemer process. As of 2010, it continues operation as a part of the United States Steel Corporation. This era of the town's history is depicted in Thomas Bell's novel Out of This Furnace.

Braddock is also the location of the first of Andrew Carnegie's 1,679 (some sources list 1,689) public libraries in the US, designed by William Halsey Wood of Newark, New Jersey, and dedicated on March 30, 1889. The Braddock Library included a tunnel entrance for Carnegie's millworkers to enter a bathhouse in the basement to clean up before entering the facilities (which originally included billiard tables). An addition in 1893, by Longfellow, Alden and Harlow (Boston & Pittsburgh, successors to Henry Hobson Richardson), added a swimming pool, indoor basketball court, and 964-seat music hall that included a Votey pipe organ. The building was rescued from demolition in 1978 by the Braddock's Field Historical Society, and is still in use as a public library. The bathhouse has recently been converted to a pottery studio; the music hall is currently under restoration.

During the early 1900s many immigrants settled in Braddock, primarily from Croatia, Slovenia, and Hungary.

Braddock lost its importance with the collapse of the steel industry in the United States in the 1970s and 1980s. This coincided with the crack cocaine epidemic of the early 1980s, and the combination of the two woes nearly destroyed the community. In 1988, Braddock was designated a financially distressed municipality. The entire water distribution system was rebuilt in 1990-1991 at a cost of $4.7 million, resulting in a fine system where only 5% of piped water is deemed "unaccounted-for."[citation needed]. From its peak in the 1920s, Braddock has since lost 90% of its population.[6][dead link]

John Fetterman, mayor of Braddock from 2006 until his 2019 inauguration as Lieutenant Governor of Pennsylvania, launched a campaign to attract new residents to the area from the artistic and creative communities.[6][dead link] He also initiated various revitalization efforts, including the nonprofit organization Braddock Redux.[8]”

Ok, some he moves into an old RustBelt Steel Town like the tombstones littering the landscape as Trump’s Dark Dark Gloomy Inaugural Speech aptly described. Town is dead, about 1,700 people left.
Fetterman tells them he is going bring back jobs, fix up the town, and put it on the map again. Bring in new businesses, revitalization time. Affordable housing!
10 years later as Mayor, it’s the same as he found it….with no jobs.

And this is who the folks of the Great State of Pennsylvania voted for. Birdbrains of a feather stick together. Idealism comes before politics or common sense.

Do you have a link for your 8:37? I've never seen any numbers that showed 30% of Dems believe the election was stolen from Trump. .

MSNBC’s Katy Tur suggests Fetterman could run for president:



How could there be any doubt? The current Oval Office squatter has set the bar.

AMERICA’S NEWSPAPER OF RECORD: Republican Party Staves Off Red Wave.

“This was a close call,” said one Republican leader in Washington. “We were worried that we would achieve massive victories tonight, but we thankfully snatched defeat from the jaws of victory to achieve a much more proper and sensible red trickle, like the proper gentlemen we are.”

Some Republicans achieved major victories, which were largely ignored by party leadership due to the fact that those Republicans were loud and icky “MEGA-MAGA” culture warriors. “Ron DeSantis won by double digits, and frankly, we find that quite uncouth,” said a D.C. consultant while holding up a glass of red trickle victory champagne. “Everyone knows the key to being a good Republican is to muddle your message and make it really squishy so no one knows what you stand for and everyone will like you. Duh!”

Everyone in the room then golf-clapped politely.

MSNBC Predicts Lauren Boebert Will Do Porn if She Loses House Seat

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/kevin-tober/2022/11/09/msnbc-predicts-lauren-boebert-will-do-porn-if-she-loses-house-seat

1) What will Boebert do if she loses he House seat? Why, she will go back and run her successful restaurant/bar with waitresses wearing sidearms just like she did before she got into politics. That is something no one on the MSPMS panel can claim.

2). If Boebert did get into porn, she will have a good following and make some money unlike Joy Reid, McCaskill, or any member of her panel. Imagine watching Sloppy Joy or Claire McCaskill disrobing without mega super duper multiple trigger warnings? That would enough to gag a maggot.

File this under things that I could have gone an entire lifetime without wanting to think about!

Punch, look harder, and I didn't specify "believe the election was stolen from Trump".

How your people thought that $100k of Russian fakebook ads no one saw threw the election but $419 million spent by Facebook's founder, laundered through a 501c3, to run election offices in Dem areas in swing states just ensured fairness is beyond belief.

Be sure to tell the NC Poooollice in preparation for our next face to face meeting in town that you made a public charge that Trump was my hero and you refused to retract it, and your evidence for said claim by you was that I never participated in the 2 Minute Hate regularly scheduled over the past 6 years.

‘These Pro-Life Republican Victories Show Abortion Radicalism Isn’t The Winner Democrats Want It To Be’

More day-after-the-election fun:
The good voters of our co-neighbor (OR) have shoved themselves into a bit of a political and financial quagmire. Props 111 and 114 seem to have gotten the nod. 111 claims that every 'resident' has a right to 'affordable' health care. Just who is a resident and what affordable is have been left for the politicians, advocacy groups, lawyers and the courts to squabble over for the next few years. In the meantime, you can believe that some one with no money and the need for an expensive operation and rehab will probably want to hie over to Oregon and set up housekeeping at one of the many camping facilities in downtown Portland.
114 is an idiot F-You to the NRA and about half of the population of Oregon. The sheriffs of OR have already pointed out they haven't got the man-power or the funds to administer the new law and that it will not affect in any way the criminals that use firearms. This will be another court battle and eventually struck down as un-Constitutional - but "golly, didn't we feel really good when we voted for it?"

Paul Emery

The Wall Street Journal, who is on your recommended reading list, agrees with me that Trump is a big assert to the Dems calling him "the biggest loser".

"The Wall Street Journal editorial board this week put the blame for Republican losses in the midterms at the feet of former President Trump, calling him the GOP’s “biggest loser.”

Gregory

What then did you "specify" ?

Clumsy dodge on the stolen election numbers. You are like Trump, you hate to lose even when it's obvious you were wrong in your comment.

Once again can you show some documentation to verify your statement about stolen elections or however you decide to interpret it?

George Rebane

PaulE 1004am - Not only that, but the WSJ also claimed that Trump was a big asset to the Dems in this election.

Actually psul you agree with the WSJ and they are now just making the argument now that Trump has exhausted any usefulness he may have once had. Nobody is looking to you for any keen political insight.

A case of blind squirrels and acorns.....

Bill Tozer

If you want to see some Trump bashing, check out the National Review. Everybody has a take on the results of the Red Ripple Vine Bottle. NRO has always been not fond of Trump. I can see Paul Emerytoad now. Clue dream sequence for effect.

“National Review, a VARY CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN RESPECTED PUBLICATION agrees with me about your boy Trumptf, Gregory.”

Nobody want s to play with Charlie Brown.

NRO has never warmed to Trump, but the writers are good on issues I care most about. First Amendment, policy, around the world. They have their take on Ukraine and daily pics from Ukraine as well. Issues. There are a whole bunch of them daily.

BTW, Paul or Dr. Rebane or Gregory: Do you remember those Ripple Wine bottles. Not bad for the cheapest wine hitting the market. Before that everybody had a Spinada bottle in their abodes. Very stylish, part of the interior decorating.

Ripple bottles gave cheapo wine some glass. Now it comes in a box.

Gregory

Punchy, see you in town.

George, while I wouldnt be surprised if Trump's "me, me, me" dance on the eve of the election had a bad effect, i think the chants of "save our democracy " and warnings of impending fascism motivated the silly and easily scared.

Democrats interfering with Republican primaries is Dirty Pool and should stop.

I see no one as yet to mention White Port. I got so ripped on Boone’s Farms Apple Annie (?) once. It was definitely Boones Farm. Moi was at the premier of Star Wars and those 99 cents a bottle apple wines hit and I plunked up in my popcorn bag and snorkel loudly through the end of the movie. At least more than half of the Premier. May the force be with you.

Here is one for the ponytail of ignorance -

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced an investigation on Thursday into a Chicago-based nonprofit, alleging that it may have used funds to "support partisan electioneering efforts" while soliciting donations "under the pretext of protecting voters from COVID-19."

A Civil Investigation Demand addressed to the Center for Tech and Civil Life (CTCL) on Thursday requests various documents related to tax filings, charitable registration forms, and donations from Texans.

"Charities cannot mislead their donors and misrepresent the purpose of their fundraising," Paxton said in a statement. "Further, in Texas, as in other states, it is the duty of state and county officials, accountable to the people of Texas, to ensure that elections are fair, safe, and free."

The CTLC received at least $300 million in 2020 from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, an organization established by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife.

I placed my ballot in the box in the Rude Center parking lot at about 6PM on Tuesday. Just got a text that they received it and counted it.

They'll sit on the numbers until next week... as Natalie Adona explained in today's The Union, they got 30 days so what's the hurry?
