I wish to respond to David Pruett’s open forum (Dec. 18) asking Ben Cline to apologize for supporting President Trump’s efforts for us to have an honest presidential election.

I have voted in presidential elections for 70 years. During that time, I never voted along party lines. I always voted for the person.

On Election Day I would go to the polls, show my identification, be confirmed that I was duly registered, given a ballot on which I would vote, and go home. By the next morning, I would know the outcome of the election.

This election was different from all the others. After the polls were closed on Election Day, “mail-in” ballots started pouring in, not for just days after the polls closed, but for weeks afterward. There were reports that thousands were from “dead” people; yet, they were “excused” because there was not enough fraud to make a difference. There were many other reports of impropriety that were also ignored.

We actually had two elections: One which followed years of tradition-mandated identification, and one which identification was actually not a consideration. One that recognized those votes cast on Election Day only, and one which counted votes no matter how many weeks they came after the polls had closed.

There were many other alleged improprieties, including not letting poll watchers get close enough to determine what was actually taking place, to having “new” ballots “appear” after the poll workers had gone home for the night.

What we have been witnessing is how the communists take over a government. I witnessed that the communists have hijacked the Democratic Party when all 12 candidates for president raised their hands when asked, “Who supports the Democrat/socialists?” I recognize also that there are many “Republicans” (too many, in fact) that are really not Republicans but pose as one. We call them “RINOs, Republicans in name only.”

Thank goodness we have people like President Trump and U.S. Rep. Ben Cline who will stand up and fight for the freedoms that our forefathers provided us, and for honest elections. These freedoms will be denied us if Biden’s presidency prevails. In fact, he has already told us his plans to make us a socialist nation. Ben Franklin’s statement that “We have a Republic, if we can hold on to it!” means more now, I believe, than ever before.

I regret that Mr. Pruett does not see the dangers of this election as I do. But in my estimation, the only true solution is for all ballots received after Nov. 3 should be null and void, as they would have been in all previous elections. Then the winner would be the legitimate one.

About time for the DNC to stop counting in GA so they can truck in some more bogus ballots... LOL

DeftCurmudgeon

Dominion voting machines down in 3 heavily red counties in GA, all working in blue counties.

Imagine that.

LVW

Even if true, don't fret; they'll count all the votes. You know, normally I'm a fan of divided government, so I would generally root for the GOP to keep control of the Senate, but all of Trump's outrageous actions have me rooting for the Dems in this race.

sbsheridan

My understanding is that those three heavily red counties are also very lightly populated.

LVW

This is yet another gem from the Holy Roller. He, like others in the MAGAverse, bases his election delusion on smoke emanating from Trump's backside. Also, maybe someone should point out to Roller that the true "Republican in name only" is none other than Donald J Trump. He has succeeded in bifurcating the Republican Party, and now he has moved on to trashing our electoral system for his own selfish goals. And his followers are cheering him on. Meanwhile, Putin smiles at a job well done.

In many states across the country, postmark dates and receipt deadlines varied. States were in control of this entirely legal process. All legal votes were counted; illegal votes weren't.

Does Mr. Roller disagree with all those states? Yep. Go for it. That's what we do in America. Is he wrong? Yep. Scoreboard: 2-60.

In Pennsylvania, only 10,000 ballots were received after November 3. Not enough by far, to affect the outcome.

Never underestimate the number of ballots that can be ultimately found under soiled mattresses, at rent by the hour motels in places like Atlanta, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, and Detroit.

Excellent Open Forum Mr. Roller, and spot on. The only quibble I have with your piece is this: Election fraud has not been "alleged". It has been clearly proven with a mountain of evidence, thousands of sworn affidavits, and actual video of the fraud while it was occurring. President Trump not only won this election. He won in a huge landslide that forced the Demokkkrats to be so blatant with their fraud that they made it obvious to all but the most willfully obtuse citizens. The big problem that the Demokkkrats now have is that literally no one believes that the presidency of Joe Biden is legitimate, even those who claim that they see no evidence of fraud. They simply hate President Trump, his voters, and our nation so much that they are willing to look the other way. It's shameful really.

Excellent post, Prince Prodigal. Your second to last sentence pretty much sums up the situation.

PS. Happy New Year to you and your trophy wife.

"To make an untrue statement with an intent to deceive."

This is a perfect description of Mr. Trump's campaign against election security that began in 2016. He's repeated this lie until his supporters believe him. (Yep, that's me agreeing with that second to last statement.) Just a reminder, there are millions more that don't believe Mr. Trump and millions who pray for those who do.

Also, remember that there is a fix for this election fiasco that doesn't involve the disenfranchisement of millions of voters.

bishopsboy

Dearest bkn, I don't believe something just because President Trump says so. I believe it because I've evaluated the data myself and come to a rational conclusion based upon a self-consistent interpretation of the data. For example, the data is that PA did not follow it's election laws as established by the state legislature for counting ballots - that's a simple fact. It's perfectly rational therefore for me to believe that election misconduct occurred in PA regardless of what President Trump or anyone else says.

LVW

Bb: LOL. Act 77 was passed by the state legislature of PA with bipartisan support to extend the types of mail-in votes allowed because of COVID. Republicans only started bellyaching about it when Trump lost the state (by a whopping 80,000 votes, by the way). The state supreme court rejected the silly lawsuit by Rep. Mike Kelly, and the Supreme Court wanted nothing to do with it either. So, where are you getting this news you are digesting, other than from Trump's backside?

bishopsboy

Sorry, LVW, but Act 77 stands in violation of the PA State Constitution and is therefore unconstitutional.

LVW

Bb: But both the PA state supreme court and the US supreme court seem to disagree with you. Hmm ... who to believe?

bishopsboy

LVW: the SCOTUS was split 4:4. Let’s let Barrett vote.

I strongly disagree that election fraud has been "clearly proven with a mountain of evidence, thousands of sworn affidavits, and actual video of the fraud while it was occurring." Such proof exists only in the minds of Trump supporters and on websites frequented by those supporters. In reviewing (and then dismissing) more than 60 lawsuits alleging fraud, no court in this country has accepted this material as proof of fraudulent election activity. Prodigal's statement that "literally no one believes the the presidency of Joe Biden is legitimate" is also an enormous lie. Joe Biden has millions of supporters, as does Trump. Finally, you claim that those who see no evidence of [systemic, widespread] fraud "simply hate President Trump, his voters, and our nation..." How dare you make such assumptions about that majority of citizens who voted for Biden! How dare you classify me, my friends, and even former Attorney General Bill Barr as nation-haters because we don't agree with you! This is a tactic right of Hitler's plan for taking over Germany. That statement CAN be found in legitimately reviewed and published histories of the time.

Good afternoon Mother Superior, and thank you once again for your thoughtful comments. Actually, yes, I have every right to express my thoughts on this thread, the same as you do. You can disagree all you wish, but the truth of the matter is that there is far more evidence than is needed to prove that the Demokkkrats stole this election, and you know it. That's what makes you so angry. You want desperately to pretend that Joe Biden is a legitimate president, and you know in your heart that he is not, and never will be. Literally no one truly believes that he won this election. It's that obvious. Now, back to a question that I posed to you on another thread. Why did you lie about not posting on this site after January 1st 2021? You stated that you were going to stop posting, and then you went back on your word. Now please, put your mask back on, and get inside your circle.

sbsheridan

You have a unique talent for making baseless assumptions, twisting words, and completely mis-interpreting situations. You have the right to express your thoughts, but I suggest you make greater use of the phrase "I think" and much less use of "the truth of the matter is." You think there is more evidence than is needed, but millions of people and many in the judicial system do not agree. You go on to tell me why I'm angry and what I want. Much better to say, "It appears that you are angry"; you really do not know me and my motivations at all. Finally, you can't truthfully say that "Literally no one truly believes that he [Biden} won this election," since you know that I and other contributors here are not believers. As for your last question, I answered it on the other thread.

Driller

Prod, As I have said before, Where is your evidence? If you have it, please share it with us and Con Don's high priced lawyers . His lawyers have been trying to prove fraud for nearly 2 months and have no evidence. All the courts headed by Democrat and Republican judges and even SCOTUS has thrown out all of Con Don's lawsuits. Why? Because they didn't have any EVIDENCE!! Maybe if you'd quit watching FOX, Newsmax and other far right channels, you might see many of your so called "evidence" pieces were debunked. I get so tired of hearing election fraud from Con Don's followers, but they never have any proof. If you have definite proof then show us and if not shut your mouth!

prodigalson

Good afternoon Driller. I wish you a very Happy New Year, my Brother.

Driller

Prod, Where's your evidence? I guess you will now eat your cheese and shut your mouth. I'm watching FOX and Friends now and they are crying and telling it is every ones fault, except for Con Don. They don't have enough towels to soak up the tears and excuses ,The Fox and Friends people are letting loose. I haven't heard on Fox that Con Don supporters clashed with police last night in Washington and many were arrested. Looks like Pence is going to be the fall guy for Con Don's lapdogs and their insanity. Have a great day my camel dung smoking friend. BTW Looks like Con Don's lying is going to cost the Republicans the Senate. This should show you Con Don is out for himself and not for anyone else, including other Republicans. Thanks, Con Don for going to Ga. and crying the election was rigged.
