Voter Fraud Is Real. Here’s The Proof, John Gibbs, The Federalist

Common Sense Commentary: The author doesn’t offer “proof” for voter fraud in our opinion, but he does offer a good argument for why there may very well be voter fraud. And sound reasoning against the argument that there is definitely not voter fraud. As this site explains (though it may have a liberal bias, the reasoning appears sound here), the dots have yet to be connected by anyone on whether voting fraud exists. Though one source insists there have been almost a million false votes, a more in-depth investigation into voting practices will have to ensue before it is possible to “prove” anything about national voter fraud.

When Is It OK For A Company to Refuse Service? Maybe Trump Supporters Should Think Twice About Flying Delta, Bre Payton, The Federalist

Common Sense Commentary: Delta definitely overreacts here, but we don’t agree with everything expressed in this article. Delta isn’t “cheap jerks” just because it buys used planes in an effort to keep its margins in the black. And it has one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry. If you really want to airline slum, try flying United.

Jimmy Carter Urges President Obama To Divide Land of Israel Before He Leaves Office, Michael Snyder, Charisma

Common Sense Commentary: CS encourages the reader to also read the source article, by Jimmy Carter, an op-ed in the NY Times, here. For why this UN resolution would be catastrophic for the US, read Snyder’s former piece, here. News was that Obama intended to back off of this initiative, but this article leaves a UN resolution still open. This article, Why Carter Gets It Wrong On Israel, responds to Carter’s false assumptions and arguments.

Trump’s 100 Day Contract To Make America Great Again

Live Presidential Election Results, Fox News

Note: At present, Clinton has about 1,300,000 more votes nationally than Trump, though there are different estimates. Cook Political Report has the lead at 2.5 million votes (though Cook declares itself non-partisan, its accolades and background are suspiciously liberal). ABC/Post estimate is the same as that of Fox. Michigan certified Trump as winner on 11/28, giving him 306 electoral votes. The Electoral College convenes on December 19th this election cycle, and generally, motivated by both custom and law, confirms the election result.

How Steve Pieczenik And Other Intelligence Officials Stopped The Clinton Coup, You Tube

Common Sense Commentary: Who is Steve Pieczenik? One rumor is that he was the real life model for the Jack Bauer character on the TV series, 24. Others suggest Jose Rodriguez, former chief of the CIA’s Clandestine Service as more likely, still others say it wasn’t based on anyone. At the very least Pieczenik is a controversial character with mucho smarts and a varied resume of government and intelligence experience. His Wikipedia bio may be accessed here. In this video he explains how a silent and 2nd American Revolution is occurring right now. For more on Pieczenik’s background and a fairly objective appraisal of some of his crazier – and apparently incorrect predictions and views – see this recent video from The Michael Trimm Show, which also includes an amazing explanation for why FBI Director Jim Comey could not indict Hillary, at about the 27:00 mark.
