2,000 Mules: Belly Laughs, Belly Aches from Film’s “Proof” that Trump Won

In his film 2000 Mules, Dinesh D’Souza sets out to prove a giant criminal conspiracy to stuff ballot boxes with fraudulent votes. The proof? Well, you can see it with your own eyes: There’s a BLACK man and he is dropping off BALLOTS in a ballot drop box. Case closed! You can laugh now. But crying time is coming. I predict … READ MORE

The January 6th Committee and the 7 sets of phony electors
"You can smell the mendacity and the subpoenas”

The January 6th committee has subpoenaed 14 GOP operatives from 7 states to ask them who is behind their very strange, and very dangerous attempt to overturn the election, by providing 7 sets of phony electors.

There were 29 phone calls between Trump and Raffensperger
What was said in those other calls?

The Ex-Con Con-Job
North Carolina to allow ex-cons to vote, too bad the Dems are MIA on registering them.

North Carolina courts ruled to allow ex-cons to vote even if they haven’t paid old fines. The GOP is freaking. Here’s why: a University of Minnesota study found 89% of ex-cons vote Democratic, no matter their color.
