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! Read More »
