Ten days have passed since election day and there are still many questions to be answered. It appears we will get closer to at least one answer as Georgia begins to recount almost 5 million ballots.
The state has not voted for a Democrat since 1992, but Joe Biden holds a lead of just over 14,000 votes. In an unusual development, the vote counting in Atlanta’s State Farm Arena was halted due to a “burst pipe.” Officials have not been able to produce any proof that a work order was issued for the “burst pipe.” However, arena officials have called the incident “highly exaggerated” and called the issue a “slow leak” that they quickly managed.
The audits in Georgia will begin Friday morning and are required to be completed by November 18th.
In Pennsylvania a judge ordered the votes of those who failed to submit proof of identification before the November 9th deadline be disqualified, a win for the Trump campaign. However, Biden’s lead in the state is currently outside the minimum needed to call for an automatic recount.
In Arizona the votes continued to be counted. As of this writing we do not know if the separation between the two candidates will call for a recount.
An interesting development in the last 48 hours is the questioning of the Dominion voting machines that were reportedly used in multiple states, including the battleground state of Pennsylvania. The President and his team have made claims that the machines may have deleted more than two million of his votes.
The situation in many states remains fluid with the proper officials continuning to gather information and the Trump campaign investigating claims of voter fraud around the country.
Malliotakis Flips Rose
Max Rose officially conceded the race in New York’s 11th Congressional District to Nicole Malliotakis on Thursday putting an end to their three-day absentee ballot counting expedition that was not wielding the results he needed or hoped for.
With a lead of more than 37,000 votes, this race was all but settled on election night. Yesterday, what we knew all along, became official.
Nicole becomes the only Conservative/Republican to represent any part of New York City in Congress.
Running as the law and order candidate with the backing of every police union in the city, Nicole’s message of supporting the police against violent mobs and preserving the integrity of Staten Island and South Brooklyn, resonated to voters.
Outmatched dollar-to-dollar by the incumbent Max Rose, with Nancy Pelosi and the Congressional Leadership Fund pouring millions and millions more into the district, Nicole and her team outworked their opponent at every step.
In a race that is ultimately expected to be decided by ten to fifteen thousand votes, the Conservative Party is approaching nearly 11,000 votes in the district.
Congratulations Congresswoman-elect Nicole Malliotakis!
Mario Cuomo: The Myth and The Man by George Marlin
George J. Marlin sets the record straight on Mario Cuomo.
In the book, Marlin traces Cuomo’s political rise and documents how and why he abandoned his public opposition to abortion to be elected New York’s chief executive.
Marlin describes the protracted conflict between Cuomo and his church on abortion and refutes the governor’s claim that his “position on abortion is absolutely theologically sound.”
He critiques Cuomo’s famous 1984 Democratic convention speech as nothing more than the usual high-toned partisan liberal bromides that offered little, if anything, that hadn’t been touted by his party for half a century.
The book also uncovers New York State’s fiscal, economic, and social decline during Cuomo’s 12 years as governor. It explains why voters repudiated Cuomo’s version of a welfare state when he sought a fourth term in 1994 and why, in the words of his son, Governor Andrew Cuomo, his father was “more accomplished as a speech-giver than as a governor.”
Next week our email list will be sent more information on how to get a signed copy directly from the Conservative Party.
King Cuomo Cancels Thanksgiving
Andrew Cuomo has limited gatherings to no more than 10 people. No, not in restaurants, not in bars or taverns, not in catering halls. He has put a limit on how many people you can have in your own personal residence.
“I’ll be having more than 10 ppl at my house on Thanksgiving,” Staten Island Councilman Joe Borelli said in a tweet Wednesday. “Some family will come from (gasp!) New Jersey. Kids will see their grandparents, cousins will play in the yard, sis in law will bring strawberry rhubarb pie, & a turkey will be overcooked” he continued.
This new mandate from the Governor was issued along with ordering bars and restaurants to be closed by 10pm starting tonight and ordering all gyms closed.
Beyond attempting to put ridiculous restrictions on how many family members you can have over for the Holidays, the Governor seems hell bent on ensuring hundreds of more businesses shutter their doors for good throughout New York City.
The Governor remains drunk on power and completely unapologetic for contributing to the deaths of thousands and thousands of senior citizens.
