Somethings you knew would not change, didn’t. For example, President Trump gives new meaning to the word “fighter.” He continues to sue in states where he believes the count has not been honest. The President insists an honest tabulation in places such as Arizona and Pennsylvania would mean a second term.
Other examples of consistency.
Twitter keeps blocking even marginally pro-Trump tweets for no discernible reason other than it doesn’t like them.
The major media continues to portray President Trump as a sore loser, nothing more, nothing less (well, actually a lot less, but let’s not go there).
Ballots keep showing up, often in massive numbers, and always to the benefit of pro-abortion Joe Biden. And
Some areas, such as Allegheny County, and the state of Arizona just take time off from tabulating results!
According to Trip Gabriel [@tripgabriel]
Allegheny County, PA still has 35,413 uncounted mail-in ballots, but elections staff is taking today off for “administrative work” and will not resume count until Friday. “I can’t get an answer as to why,” says @bethanyhallam, a member of county elections board.
So, here are some intriguing headlines and nuggets.
*“SCOTUS Orders Pennsylvania To Respond To GOP Lawsuit By Tonight”—Ed Morrissey
According to the Washington Times
The Supreme Court ordered Pennsylvania Democrats to respond by Thursday evening in a case challenging the state’s three-day extension for counting mail-in ballots.
President Trump has moved to intervene in a lawsuit brought by Pennsylvania Republicans, arguing the state’s Democratic Party and Secretary of State violated the law by extending the time for counting mail-in ballots to Nov. 6 at 5 p.m., despite the state legislature setting the deadline as Election Day.
*“Nate Silver Wants AP and Fox News to Retract Calling Arizona for Biden”—Daniel Villarreal
Villarreal’s lead reads
Nate Silver, the founder and editor-in-chief of the data journalism site FiveThirtyEight, has said that the Associated Press and Fox News should retract their call of Arizona for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
“I don’t know, I guess I’d say that Biden will win Arizona if you forced me to pick, but I sure as heck don’t think the state should have been called by anyone, and I think the calls that were previously made should be retracted now,” Silver wrote in his website’s blog.”
*“Though Democrats invested millions of dollars in races across Iowa, they saw few bright spots as returns began rolling in. Instead, President Donald Trump helped drive a surge of Iowa voters Tuesday, lifting Republican candidates across the board in a red wave that surprised Republicans and Democrats alike” –Brianne Pfannenstiel
*“It has to go through Pennsylvania, which is necessary but not sufficient. He needs to take Pennsylvania, hold onto Georgia and North Carolina, then take either Arizona (for 279 electoral votes) or Nevada (for 274). Biden leads in both of those states. But Trump is gaining in Arizona, and it’s entirely conceivable that he could overtake Biden there (despite Fox and AP prematurely calling it for Biden)” —Rich Lowry [Nationalreview.com]. Lowry is assuming that President cannot win Michigan or Wisconsin.
And Trump’s outreach to Black and Hispanic Americans paid off.
*“The electorate, at least as measured in the exit polls, was 65 percent white and 35 percent nonwhite. Trump won white voters 57 to 42, while Biden won nonwhite voters 72 to 26. But Trump’s 26 percent was big, for a Republican. He won 12 percent of the black vote — 18 percent of black men and 8 percent of black women. He won 32 percent of the Hispanic vote — 36 percent of Hispanic men and 28 percent of Hispanic women. He won 37 percent of men and women of other races”—Byron York
To come full circle, the President’s team is doing everything humanly possible but they face the hole in the bucket in reverse. Every time he is closing the gap, another boatload of ballots comes in to fill up Mr. Biden’s totals.
An uphill fight? Sure. But it’s hardly the first one our Movement, or, in this case the most pro-life President in history, has faced.
