A Maricopa Footnote

I do not wish to beat a dead horse.  It seems that the majority of American citizens, including many Republicans, wish to move on from the 2020 election.  However, that dead horse continues to emit a nauseating stench. The recent Maricopa County audit report included an interesting item that appears to have been totally ignored […]

A House Divided

As I have noted previously, it is interesting how persons with reasonable intelligence, good educations, and similar values can look at current events and arrive at opinions that are so diametrically opposed.   One’s viewpoint is largely dependent on his or her news sources. An example is afforded by different perspectives on the 2020 election.  Trump […]

Ghost Riders

Several months ago there was an Arizona Senate authorized audit of voting in Maricopa County.  It was done over a period of some weeks and was very extensive. Part of the cost was defrayed by contributions from interested citizens, mostly Republican, who were convinced that there were election irregularities in November 2020.  Democrat spokespersons have […]

Thou Doth Protest Too Much

(Prior to posting the following I learned that the Antrim, Michigan, lawsuit had been dismissed.  The judge did not allow Attorney DePerno to present his evidence but ruled that the Michigan secretary of state had already done an audit, and a further one was unnecessary. At the same time, there is fierce opposition to continuing […]

Go in Peace!

Many of Trump’s former allies are turning on him.  A few cabinet members and other high officials have resigned. Some accuse him of inciting the recent riots in Washington by his refusal to accept the election results. Trump responds with vicious assaults against these one time friends and supporters of his administration. I detest fair […]

Finally Over?

Too bad the election season is ending in riots.  There is no excuse for violence.  We are a nation of laws.  The law gets it wrong on occasion, but we must accept its decisions.  Trump alienated many of his supporters by his refusal to accept a result that appeared inevitable. Now, after the outbreak of […]

They Stole It Fair and Square

On December 14th the electoral college cast its ballots for Joseph Biden as the next President of the United States.  Trump’s lawyers continue to fight the decision in state courts and legislatures, but I believe their prospects of success are about equal to the chance of a snowball surviving in the nethermost regions of Hades. […]

Riots and Revolution?

A month has elapsed since the election, and there remains a boiling undercurrent of uncertainty about the outcome.  Our citizens are divided into the following camps.  Those who believe that Joseph Biden won the election legitimately, and election fraud was minimal.  Biden is their President. Those who believe that there may have been considerable fraud, […]

Thoughts on the Election

Results from the recent Presidential election are still being fought out in state legislatures and in the courts.  The role of the legislatures is very important because, as the United States Constitution directs, “each state shall appoint, in such manner as the legislature thereof may direct” the electors that determine who will be President. As […]
