ABOUT THOSE TIN FOIL HATS

Let's start with the media's latest talking point. That is "If you don't believe that Joe Biden won the presidential election, you're a right wing kook in a tin foil hat."

Next, let's restart with what we know is true.

First: For almost 2-1/2 years so called journalists did everything they could to convince the American people that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to win the 2016 elections. They broadcast from the mountain tops Adam Schiff's libelous claims that he had proof of the collusion. They applauded the solemn pronouncements made by discredited Obama minions James Clapper and John Brennan. They fawned over characters like Michael Avenatti. And they assured us that Robert Mueller's report would soon provide the evidence needed to rid the DC beltway of Donald Trump once and for all. Then, when it became evident that Obama's FBI was in fact spying on a presidential campaign and trying to unseat a duly elected president, just as President Trump had said all along, they suddenly lost interest.

Next they promoted the narrative that President Trump committed "high crimes and misdemeanors" by asking the Ukranian president to investigate whether Joe Biden intervened in Ukraine to protect his son Hunter's business partners - a story line that was so clearly contrived and partisan that not a single House Republican, not even the never Trumpers, voted for impeachment.

And when the truth did come out about Hunter Biden's business dealings in Russia and China, these same arbiters of the moral high ground, didn't even raise an eyebrow. Instead, they gave the American people a condescending pat on the head, and told us that there was nothing to see there. (Imagine if Hunter's last name was McCarthy, McConnell or Trump.) Most importantly when allegations of serious misconduct by Joe Biden himself were made by Hunter Biden's business partner, rather than investigating, the "mainstream media" buried the entire story - just weeks before the election.

Meanwhile media's big tech allies censored a sitting American president and anyone who supported him on Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere. Simultaneously they strove to demoralize President Trump's supporter's - refusing to cover rallies attended by tens of thousands, while simultaneously publishing ridiculous polls that forecast a Biden landslide and big blue wave that would wipe out the GOP in Congress.

Now they want us to disregard facts about the November 3rd election that even the likes of CNN and MSNBC don't refute.  They want us to believe that a lethargic, career politician who spent 47 years in Washington, campaigned largely from his basement and couldn't draw a crowd of 1,000 supporters, somehow was elected president, even though we know the following:

1) President Trump received more votes than any previous incumbent seeking reelection. He got at least 11 million more votes than in 2016. By way of comparison, President Obama was comfortably reelected in 2012 with 3.5 million fewer votes than he received in 2008.

2) President Trump grew his support among black voters by 50 percent over 2016. While nationally, Joe Biden’s black support fell well below 90 percent, the level below which Democratic presidential candidates usually lose. Yet, Biden supposedly led in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin because of an apparent avalanche of black votes in Detroit, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee? Biden’s ‘winning’ margin was derived almost entirely from such voters in these cities, and his black vote spiked only in exactly those locations that were necessary to secure victory. What an amazing coincidence.

3) President Trump increased his share of the national Hispanic vote to 35 percent. In some areas he probably exceeded that amount. Why does that matter? Because, with 60 percent or less of the Hispanic vote, in states like Florida, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico it is mathematically impossible for a Democratic presidential candidate to win election.

4) Bellwether states swung further in President Trump’s direction than in 2016. Florida, Ohio and Iowa each defied America’s media polls with huge wins for Trump. Since 1852, only Richard Nixon has lost the Electoral College after winning this trio, and that 1960 defeat to John F. Kennedy is still the subject of great suspicion.

5) Current tallies show that, outside of a few cities, the Rust Belt swung in President Trump’s direction. In Ohio he won both Mahoning and Trumbull Counties, probably the first Republican to win there in 50 years, not to mention cities like Parma locally. Why would he not have won over similar voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin?

6) We are told that Biden won more votes nationally than any presidential candidate in history. But he won a record low of only 17 percent of counties - he only won 524 counties, as opposed to the 873 counties Obama won in 2008. Yet, we are supposed to believe that a robotic Joe Biden somehow outdid Barack Obama, the reigning Democrat superstar, by 13 million votes?

7) Of the 19 bellwether counties in the United States that have consistently voted for the presidential winner since 1980, all but one chose President Trump. Washington state’s Clallam County was the narrow outlier, backing Joe Biden in a state he won by more than 19 points, but by only about 3 points in that county.

8) Victorious presidential candidates, especially challengers, usually have down-ballot coat tails; Biden did not. President Trump did. There was not a huge blue wave in the Senate, and the GOP in fact enjoyed a ‘red wave’ in the House, where we gained a comparatively large number of seats, while winning all 27 toss-up contests. With President Trump at the head of the ticket, Republicans did not lose a single state legislature and actually made gains at the state level nationwide.

9) Finally there is the key anomaly that is found in the comparison between the polls and non-polling metrics. As we've discussed previously, non-polling metrics include party registration trends; the candidates’ respective primary votes; internal polling data, candidate enthusiasm among supporters; social media followings; broadcast and digital media ratings; online searches; voter contacts  made by volunteers; the number of (especially small) donors; and even the number of individuals betting on each candidate. In terms of these non-polling metrics, President Trump left Biden in the dust.

10) Further, we know that the main stream media polls were all baloney. Frankly, they often are. But the non-polling metrics have a 100 percent accuracy record, and every one of those non-polling metrics forecast President Trump’s reelection. For him to lose the election, the mainstream polls needed to be correct, which they were not. For the President to lose, not only did one or more of these non-polling metrics have to be wrong for the first time in US History, but every single one had to be wrong, and at the very same time. If you believe that happened, please call the CVR.  We have some ocean front property in Arizona for sale at bargain prices.

And now we have the video from State Farm Arena in Atlanta.  As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and according to Rudy Giuliani, this picture is just the tip of the iceberg. Clearly there is reason for objective thinkers to question the results of such a strange election.

So perhaps it is not the millions of President Trump's stalwart supporters who are wearing tin foil hats. Perhaps it is those among us who are content to be treated like lemmings, more concerned about the NBA playoffs or which model SUV they'll buy so that they can keep up with the Joneses, rather than being concerned about something that they foolishly think won't really affect their comfortable suburban lifestyles one way or the other - something like protecting the integrity of a presidential election.

Just because a majority of the media, aided by some shameful, self-serving Republicans, says there was not voter fraud, that doesn't make them right. If there is one thing that thoughtful, fair minded voters of every political ilk have learned by now, it's that these people are not to be trusted. This, their latest and most egregious attempt to con the American people brings to mind an old saying. "You can put a thousand dollar saddle on a donkey, but anyone with half a brain will see that it's still just a donkey."

Did you ever wonder what CNN's commentators would look like in tin foil hats?

Perhaps we'll soon get a chance to see for ourselves.

Meanwhile, the Cuyahoga Valley Republicans are proud to stand with President Trump.
