Commentary by Ann Coulter  

Election recounts would be more plausible if Democrats occasionally let the Republican win. But they don’t. Ballots miraculously discovered days and weeks after the election — in the back seat of a car, after helpful “corrections” to the ballots by election supervisors, etc. — invariably result in a surprise win for the Democrat. Voters are just supposed to accept that, unless Republicans win an election by an insuperable margin, the Democrats will steal it.

And the thieving is cheered on by our media. Whenever President Trump has the effrontery to mention that GOP victories are being stolen by corrupt Democratic officials, the media snippily note that his claim is “UNSUBSTANTIATED.”

Thus, for example, in the first 60 seconds of CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront” on Monday, Burnett said:

“(The email from Trump headquarters) without providing any evidence … warns that, quote, corrupt Democrats are trying to, quote, steal election victories in Florida. …

“It’s a baseless claim that President Trump has been pushing for days. …

“(Gov. Rick) Scott (is) talking about rampant fraud without providing any evidence. …

“Now, ‘steal an election,’ ‘committing fraud’ are big claims to make without having evidence.”

Hey! I have an idea! Why doesn’t CNN rustle up some reporters to go and investigate the biggest story of the year?

No, the burden is on random Republicans — who have jobs other than “reporting the news” — to produce bulletproof evidence of voter fraud. Otherwise, it’s just a wacky coincidence that these “recounts” always result in mysterious new votes for Democrats.

If a freelance investigative reporter like James O’Keefe actually does produce the evidence that our media are too lazy and biased to get for themselves, they sneer that O’Keefe can’t be trusted. He’s not a real reporter!

What a real reporter does is call up some left-wing outfit, get a quote, and peremptorily announce that there has never been an illegal ballot cast in any election, ever.

We called the Brennan Center for Justice, and they assured us that voter fraud doesn’t exist. I can prove I called — I’ll show you my phone records! We’re not going to send our reporters on a snipe hunt. Oh, and we also got an interesting brochure on voter suppression, such as the Nazi-inspired idea that voters should know how to spell their own names.

That’s what we get from our crackerjack media. Journalists’ phones should be taken away, so they’d be forced to do actual reporting.

Republicans control the state legislature and governor’s office in Florida. They control the U.S. Congress and the presidency. If that’s not enough to prevent two statewide Florida elections from being stolen, the GOP is more useless than I’d already imagined.

Here’s a primer for Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan on how to deal with all the Senate and House election “recounts” that keep magically flipping seats to the Democrats.

In 1974, Republican Louis Wyman won his race for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, beating Democrat John Durkin by 355 votes. Durkin demanded a recount — which went back and forth by a handful of votes until the state’s Ballot Law Commission concluded that Wyman had indeed won. Wyman was certified the winner by the New Hampshire secretary of state and was on his way to Washington, D.C., when … the Senate refused to seat him. New Hampshire’s certification of Wyman as the winner meant nothing, because, you see, Democrats held a majority in the Senate.

The Senate spent months examining disputed ballots. Unable to come up with any method whereby they could declare the Democrat the winner, the Senate forced New Hampshire to hold another election.

Demoralized Republicans stayed home and, this time, the Democrat won.

Hey, Mitch! Don’t Republicans hold a majority in the Senate?

In 1984, Democrat Frank McCloskey won a razor-thin re-election to the House from Indiana’s 8th Congressional District. The state held two recounts, both of which the Republican won. The Washington Post reported that there were “no allegations of fraud” in the recount, and 90 percent of ballot disqualifications had been agreed to “by election commissions dominated by Democrats.”

Consequently, Indiana’s secretary of state certified Republican Rick McIntyre the winner.

But the Democratic-controlled House simply refused to seat McIntyre. Instead, the House undertook its own “recount.” You’ll never guess who won!

Don’t Republicans have a majority in the House for six more weeks?

In 2008, Sen. Norm Coleman of Minnesota won his re-election bid against challenger Al Franken by 725 votes. But for several weeks after the election, Democratic precincts kept discovering new votes for Franken — including ballots sitting in cars, as well as a write-in vote for “Frankenstein” — which was counted as a vote for Franken. (Duh.)

These late-discovered ballots eventually put Frankenstein ahead by 312 votes, whereupon he was immediately certified the winner by the George Soros-backed secretary of state.

The U.S. Senate was in Democratic hands, so there was no question but that Majority Leader Harry Reid would seat the cheater, Franken. And that, kids, is how the Democrats got the 60th vote for Obamacare.

Four years later, we found out that more than 1,000 felons — ineligible to vote — had cast ballots in the 2008 Minnesota election. (To state the obvious, felons support Democrats by about 10-1.)

In the middle of the Democrats’ open theft of the Indiana seat in 1984, The New York Times pompously reminded readers of the “basic constitutional principle that Congress is the judge of its own membership and that lawmakers can overrule state laws in making that determination.”

You’ve already caved on Arizona, Mitch. How about taking a page from the Democrats’ playbook? You don’t have to go full Daley Machine. Democrats steal elections they actually lost. Republicans just want you to hang on to the seats they won.

Russell Moore SBC tweetA documentary filmmaker says he is hard at work exposing the growing influence of radical far-left activism in evangelical congregations.

Documentary producer Trevor Louden says the 2016 film “Enemy Within” about communism’s influence in American politics opened his eyes to the threat, and he is now working with director Judd Saul to expose that influence in churches and their leaders.

The producer and director described their upcoming church documentary in a Nov. 9 interview on the “Sandy Rios in the Morning” radio show, where they described how communism has managed to influence people by hijacking movements.

“I’ve studied how the left operates through the peace movement, through the Black Lives Matter movement, through the women’s movement, through the labor movement,” said Loudon. “And they use the same methodology in the churches.”

The far-left goal in politics has always been to move government toward socialism and eventually communism, Louden said, and a similar goal is now under way to move churches leftward, too. Over time, he warned, that leftward drift affects the voting base inside those conservative churches, which is the ultimate goal of the far-left provocateurs.

The gospel message is still preached, he told Rios, but it’s “what they add on that is the problem.”

That is why church members are hearing more about social justice and “white privilege,” warnings from the pulpit about global warming and a fragile planet, and sympathy for illegal immigrants and refugees attempting to enter the United States, the filmmakers said.

Southern Baptist ConventionThe filmmakers told Rios one organization that drifted left in recent years is World Vision, the child relief organization, and a second one in danger of that far-left drift is Cru, formerly Campus Crusade for Christ, founded in the 1950s by Bill Bright.

Louden said he was informed by a Cru employee about the drift away from its gospel roots and was told to expect an exodus of employees, unwilling to follow that drift, in the near future.

One unsurprising named dropped by the filmmakers is Jim Wallis, the controversial Sojourners founder whose namesake magazine publishes stories such as “A Radical Redistribution of Love” that all but compares communism to brotherly love.

 A second name dropped by the filmmakers on the radio program is Russell Moore, the controversial Southern Baptist figure who now leads that denomination’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) based in Nashville, Tenn.

Moore has already caused problems within the conservative denomination, such as ridiculing Southern Baptists who voted for Donald Trump, among other questionable decisions. But the filmmakers told Rios their upcoming documentary will describe how Moore attended a “strategy session” with leaders from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a powerful homosexual-rights group based in Washington, D.C. The filmmakers were likely referring to a 2014 ERLC conference on same-sex marriage that was described in a HRC press release, which complained about the SBC but made it clear HRC was sending leaders to sit down with Moore.

The filmmakers claimed in the American Family Radio interview that Moore met with HRC as an ally, not a SBC official hoping to exchange views. OneNewsNow contacted ERLC for comment about the filmmakers’ accusations but did not get a response from the organization.

“These are hard things to talk about,” Rios observed at one point, when the filmmakers accused author-pastor Tim Keller of flirting with far-left activism, too.

“This is pretty sinister and pretty deep,” Louden told the radio program. “This isn’t just a bunch of liberals who had taken over some churches. This is an organized Marxist program to pervert and corrupt American Christianity.”

 Rios: not surprised at allegations

Billy Davis, OneNewsNow.com

A veteran radio talk show host says she was not shocked by accusations that evangelical churches are the target of far-left activism.

Sandy Rios interviewed documentary filmmakers Trevor Loudon and Judd Saul for most of her one-hour program Nov. 9, allowing them to describe their claims and allegations to the American Family Radio audience. The targets of their upcoming documentary include The Gospel Coalition, ERLC leader Russell Moore, pastor-teacher Tim Keller, and organizations such as Cru, formerly Campus Crusade for Christ.  

Sandy RiosRios, who worked as a talk show host in Chicago, tells OneNewsNow she has enough experience with the Left’s infiltration into Christian organizations that she is not easily shocked by the claims.

The most serious allegations aired on the show, she says, is that Moore and Keller “might be willing infiltrators/manipulators” to an unsuspecting Church.

“Both have large evangelical audiences and followers,” she says, “and to accuse them of this is no small matter.”

Rios can’t personally affirm the filmmakers’ allegations, she adds, “but I know them well enough to know we should heed their warnings and ‘test the spirits to see if they be of God.'”

Just remember: You can never, ever call counting votes that mysteriously appear out of nowhere “voter fraud.

The number of votes cast keeps on mysteriously increasing for no good reason in a county where the person in charge of the count is famous for illegally destroying ballots in a primary? That’s not fraud, you Infowars-watcher.

Lawyers trying to get ballots from non-citizens counted? You’re clearly an irredeemable racist if you’re concerned about that.

Ballots being found pretty much everywhere aside from behind the soft-serve machine at a Jacksonville Dairy Queen? Why do you hate democracy so much?

Yes, new ballots seem to be popping up everywhere, particularly in the southeast corner of our fine nation. The latest bunch is from Georgia — which has already seen a good deal of apparent Democratic hijinks in this election. And — what do you know? — the new ballots seem to favor the Democrats!

“BREAKING: A handful of Georgia counties just reported thousands of new *absentee*, *early*, and *Election Day* votes that @BrianKempGA’s numbers did not account for, significantly closing the gap,” a Saturday tweet from the Georgia Democrats read, along with the hashtags, “#CountEveryVote #gapol”

“The latest vote tally on the Georgia secretary of state’s website shows Kemp leading by more than a percentage point. Kemp had 1,975,806 votes to Abrams’ 1,916,931 — a margin of 58,875 votes — leading 50.28 percent to Abrams’ 48.78 percent,” the Washington Examiner reported Sunday.

The Libertarian candidate, Ted Metz, had a mere 37,149 votes and 0.95 percent of the vote.

“Earlier in the day, Kemp’s campaign argued that it was ‘mathematically impossible’ for Abrams to pull ahead or get close enough to trigger a recount, even with the remaining uncounted provisional and military ballots.”

However, the Democrats argued that they were getting closer and closer to a runoff, which would be triggered if Kemp got under 50 percent of the vote — and Abrams’ campaign manager claimed that Kemp had “lied” about the number of ballots left.

However, one Twitter user had the perfect reaction:

Yes — why are all these votes suddenly being found? Why are they all Democrat? Why does this never seem to happen in majority-Republican districts?

I’m not saying that it’s fraud. It could very well be mass incompetence. If so, I expect to see resignations across the board. Something tells me that’s not going to be happening — which should tell you a lot about where the Democrats are these days.

They’re not willing to talk about their massive incompetence when it comes to election machinery, and you’d best not bring up voter fraud unless you want to be labeled a tinfoil hat-wearing bigot.

This is an absolute farce.

Could the Active Denial System be the answer for possible border problems? Conservative commentator Glenn Beck thinks so.

You may not have heard of the ADS, which has been a topic of debate for over a decade now. The non-lethal deterrent system been labeled by both military personnel and press alike as a “pain ray” — which, I suppose, is a catchier way to refer to it than ADS.

The U.K. Telegraph, describing the system back in 2010, said that military officials described it as a “non-lethal, directed-energy, counter-personnel weapon.”

“Compared with most military vehicles, the device looks relatively harmless — like one of the broadcasting trucks you see outside big sporting events: an anonymous-looking military transport with what appears to be a square satellite dish mounted on top. But it contains an extraordinary new weapon, capable of causing immense discomfort from half a mile away without – its makers claim – doing any lasting damage,” the newspaper reported.

“The ADS works by projecting a focused beam of 3.2mm wave electromagnetic radiation at a human target. This heats the water and fat molecules on the skin, causing their temperature to rise by up to 50C (122 degrees Fahrenheit).

“Philip Sherwell, a Sunday Telegraph reporter who tried out the ADS in 2007, describes it as ‘unbearably uncomfortable, like opening a roasting hot oven door.’ The immediate instinct is to escape the beam and seek cover — at which point the effect subsides.”

A Pentagon’s description is less dramatic, but just as persuasive.

“The Active Denial System is needed because it’s the first non-lethal, directed-energy, counter-personnel system with an extended range greater than currently fielded non-lethal weapons,” a FAQ from the Pentagon reads.

“Most counter-personnel non-lethal weapons use kinetic energy (rubber rounds, bean bags, etc.). A kinetic-based system has a higher risk of human injury, and its effectiveness varies in relation to the size, age and gender of the target. The Active Denial System, however, is consistently effective regardless of size, age and gender and has a range greater than small-arms range. The Active Denial System will provide military personnel with a non-lethal weapon that has the same effect on all human targets.”

The system can hit targets at 700 yards. That’s impressive, but even more so is how the military says it could be deployed.

“The Active Denial System will support a full spectrum of operations ranging from non-lethal methods of crowd control, crowd dispersal, convoy and patrol protection, checkpoint security, perimeter security, area denial, and port protection, as well as other defensive and offensive operations from both fixed-site or mobile platforms,” the FAQ states.

A Pentagon video shows how it works.

That means that it could be used in the event of a large group of people trying to force their way over the border — something that’s always a concern when it comes to caravans. And, as you can see above, this is basically a high-energy invisible wall.

That didn’t escape the notice of Glenn Beck.

So, could this be a tool used for caravans or similar situations involving border incursions?

The Telegraph notes that it can produce second- and third-degree burns if not used correctly and that weather conditions like rain, snow and fog can limit how effective it is. Also, reflective surfaces can limit its efficacy, meaning there are ways to beat it.

However, if you’re looking to mitigate the possible danger from large masses of people trying to make a run on the border — always a possibility with caravans — the ADS could just be the future of dealing with such threats.

Emergency Democrat Votes
Emergency Democrat Votes

Funny how in these times, whenever a Democrat loses and election to a Republican – especially if said Dem is a Black and the Republican a White – and the votes are close, there’s now always some issue and there’s always some number of extra Democrat ballots found by them after the fact. 😯  It seems an awful lot like they have a supply of Emergency Democrat Votes, doesn’t it?

And it’s these sorts who rant so stridently that President Trump, the Electoral College, and anything, everything, and anyone except themselves is a threat to America’s democracy and the integrity of our electoral process.

Imagine an ad on your television. It shows an adorable baby calf, frolicking in the barnyard. It couldn’t be cuter. Then the screen cuts to black and you see the text, “This could be your next meal. Come to Rudy’s House of Veal and this little sucker could be on your plate, drenched in our signature gravy.” 

Not really the most effective advertising, no? Well, at least the calf had a chance to live and at least it’s livestock — which means, you know, something that’s being raised for meat. And that very much means it’s not a human life that’s being talked about.

If only the hypothetical ad agency that hypothetically dissuaded Rudy’s House of Veal from running that hypothetical creepy TV spot had hypothetically gotten in contact with pro-abortion advocates, maybe we wouldn’t be stuck watching what might be the most bizarre, amoral, counterproductive and macabre pro-abortion advertisement that’s ever been cobbled together.

According to LifeSite News, the ad was created in 2015 by the pro-abortion Agenda Project. The spot opens with a picture of an adorable, giggling baby with stock music-box soundtrack behind it. It looks, in fact, like the beginning of at least 72 percent of diaper ads.

The screen then goes black. “She deserves to be … loved,” the white text reads. Well, of course she does. I mean, you could say that for any child, especially one this cute.

So then we get more baby and more lullaby music. Fade to black again.

“She deserves to be … wanted,” it reads this time. If you didn’t read the first few paragraphs, you might think this was an adoption commercial or maybe Luvs was really short on ad copywriters that day. Only the bleakest, darkest hearts among us would think it was going, you know, there. But go there it does. More cooing baby, then: “She deserves to be … a choice. #StandWithPP.


While the video is three years old, it recently made the rounds on social media again — and sparked plenty of outrage.




My fingers are frozen, as if they don’t know what affront to our common humanity to type about first. There’s so much revulsion vying to get out it’s like 22 people trying to jam their way through one turnstile.

I think we can start by examining what appears to be the premise of this ad:

“See this baby? If it’s yours, you should have been able to kill it.” Yes, that’s a cynical view of it, but certainly not an incorrect interpretation. Let’s also keep in mind the most shocking thing about this clip — the pro-abortion side is actively admitting here that a baby is a baby. The image presented to you isn’t just a “clump of cells.” It’s a human being — and it’s a human being whose right to exist ought to have been up to you, they’re saying.

I mean, I wholeheartedly agree with everything but that part about the choice, but I wasn’t under the impression that the Cecile Richards regiment of the American left was actively trying to forward this line of thinking.

Beyond examining the semiotics of using a child to convince Americans that unborn children ought to be killed, let’s talk about the visceral effect of this ad. You present a cute, healthy baby girl and then make an argument she doesn’t have to exist if you don’t want her to.

Is everyone on the “pro-choice side” so far gone that nobody had the common sense to talk someone in a position of power out of releasing this? Did anyone involved with this abomination think those without strong feelings about the ethics of abortion were going to see this and take Planned Parenthood’s side?

Without showing the grisly horrors of the procedure, I couldn’t have made an ad more damaging to the pro-abortion cause than this. That a pro-abortion group released this in support of their cause is evidence of moral rot far beyond anything I could have imagined.

I thought there was almost nothing that could surprise me about the perfidies of America’s abortion industry. Thanks for proving me wrong, I guess.
