Ep. 853 I Warned You About This

In this episode I address the suspicious reemergence of Barack Obama’s “fixer” in the scheme to take down Trump. I also address the election troubles in Broward County and how these troubles could impact conservatives in future elections. Finally, I debunk liberal economic myths being picked up by a new generation of liberals.

Broward County “Misplaced” Over 2,000 Ballots

In the midst of the Broward County hand recount on Saturday, Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said her office misplaced over 2,000 ballots.

According to the Florida Sun Sentinel: 

The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack.

One thing she said she was sure of: “The ballots are in this building.”

“There would be nowhere else for them to be,” Snipes said. “The ballots are in the building. The ballots are in the building.”

Snipes claimed an election worker likely misplaced the ballots saying, “I’m not blaming anyone, but many of our team members were not as well trained as some others.”

The embattled official has come under fire for her handling of elections throughout the years. She has a long history of destroying ballots, losing ballots, and allowing illegal aliens and felons to vote.

She recently suggested that racism–and not her inability to effectively and accurately oversee elections–was the likely reason for the backlash against her.

When asked by The Guardian if race was a factor in the backlash, Snipes replied “Probably. Probably.”

Many have called on Snipes to resign and–it appears–they may get their wish.

She told reporters earlier this week that it was “time to move on,” but that she has to speak with her family first.

 

 

 

The Hidden Significance of Gun Control in the Florida Election Recount

One of the most pressing–and underreported–issues surrounding the Florida midterm election recount is gun control.

The state of Florida is unique in that instead of having law enforcement or the courts handle concealed weapons permits, they’re issued by the Department of Agriculture.

As the American Thinker puts it, “…capturing the Florida agriculture commissioner’s post would be a key victory in the liberal and progressive push for gun control.”

GOP Agriculture commissioner candidate Matt Caldwell declared victory last Tuesday evening, after  leading the race by 40,000 votes. However, as of Nov. 10, Democrat candidate Nikki Fried led Caldwell 4,030,337 votes to 4,025,011, a difference of 5,326. The vote difference falls within the .5 percent margin requiring a recount.

Caldwell filed a lawsuit against Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes, “asking the court to protect the integrity of all ballots and all public records relating to the election for Commissioner of Agriculture.” (Snipes has a history of losing ballots, destroying ballots, and allowing illegal immigrants and felons to vote.)

Caldwell discussed his lawsuit with WLRN, telling the station,  “Any supervisor in the state is able to tell you what kind of votes they had cast — whether it is vote by-mail, early votes or Election Day votes — and when those were tagged into the system in order to prove … that they were cast before 7:00 on Tuesday night. And the Broward supervisor has been unable to answer that question. On Wednesday we asked, Thursday we asked, and Friday we asked … so we ultimately filed a lawsuit just to produce all the records to see what that situation is.”

Fried, as the American Thinker points out, is no friend to the Second Amendment, and is in favor of more gun control, as well as making concealed carry permits much more difficult to obtain.  She, “openly states that her goal is to make it much harder for Floridians to exercise their Second Amendment rights. And she apparently thinks she’s running against the NRA rather than her GOP challenger, Matt Caldwell.”

Finally: Is Broward County’s Brenda Snipes Resigning as Elections Supervisor?

After receiving heavy criticism from Republicans across the country for her handling of the midterm elections, Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes, is telling reporters “it is time to move on.”

The infamous supervisor of elections, who has a history of losing ballots and allowing felons and illegal immigrants to vote, told reporters Tuesday that it was time to move on, but that she has to speak with her family first.

LISTEN: Dan discusses the recount battle in Florida and the real reason the Democrats are fighting against transparency.

Get ready, for this one, folks: Snipes says she believes she served her purpose, “which is to provide a credible election product for Broward.”

Snipes’ announcement came after a reporter asked her opinion of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s tweet, in which he wrote, “There is no question that Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes failed to comply with Florida law on multiple counts, undermining Floridians’ confidence in our electoral process.”

Snipes was also asked Monday about lawsuits being filed regarding “issues” with ballots, forcing her to defend her character.

“I think the lawsuits, as they are written, certainly cast Aspersions on my character and usually we build character over a period of time and character is always on display and I’ve worked here for about 15 years and I have to say this is the first time that this office or I have been under such attacks.”

When asked if “mistakes” had been made in the handling of some ballots, Snipes replied, “There have been issues that did not go over the way we wanted it, so we can call it a mistake. We can call it whatever you want to call it.”

Broward County Stole my Vote in 2000, Brenda Snipes Helped Cover it Up

Given the current election antics in Florida, this should come as no surprise: A retired Army Colonel claims that Broward County stole his vote, and the infamous Brenda Snipes “helped cover it up.”

Colonel Dave Lowry writes in the Washington Examiner that he had to vote by absentee ballot in the 2000 Bush v. Gore election. Because he was up against the deadline, Lowry decided to send his ballot in through UPS.

He tracked the package and was relieved to see that it arrived at 3:09 p.m. on Tuesday, November 7, 2000 and was signed by someone named “Benson”. The deadline was 7 p.m.

Seven months later, Lowry was contacted by a New York Times reporter who informed him his name was on a list of thousands of absentee ballots that had not been counted.

Stunned, Lowry spent four years trying to get to the bottom of what had happened. He made repeated requests for a copy of his ballot, but the Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Miriam Oliphant, stonewalled until the statute of limitations had expired. In November of 2003, Jeb Bush suspended Oliphant for incompetence.

Eventually he received a copy of his voided ballot and–in late 2003–presented it to the Florida Elections Commission which validated his claim and sent a letter to the new Supervisor of Elections, Brenda Snipes, requesting that his ballot be counted in the official result.

Lowry writes:

Brenda Snipes never responded to the letter. To date, my ballot has never been opened or counted.

I believe that thousands of Floridian absentee ballots from that election were fraudulently stamped with incorrect dates of receipt. The Supervisor of Elections knows there is no tracking system on ballots handled by the U.S. Postal Service. With no tracking, the receiver can stamp them as “late” without fear of being caught. It’s the perfect crime.

I can’t speak to the motive. Some election workers might just be lazy. But let’s say an unscrupulous hyper-partisan entity decided to sort the ballots by party registration and decide which ballots to open and count, and which ones to mark “late”?

Dr. Brenda Snipes, took no action to count my vote. She just swept it under the rug.

My vote was stolen by some unscrupulous government servant. Unfortunately, Miriam Oliphant was never charged with a misdemeanor for stealing my vote, because she stonewalled and denied access to the evidence I needed to prove my case. Oliphant’s replacement, Dr. Brenda Snipes, took no action to count my vote. She just swept it under the rug.

But I did succeed in proving that George W. Bush won by 538 votes, not 537. I guess that’s something.

The question now is: What about Brenda Snipes? It would be unwise for Governor Scott to suspend Snipes. His name is on the ballot in a close contest. Scott has a glaring conflict of interest. Florida Secretary of State Ken Dextner needs to act immediately to suspend and replace Snipes before she completely destroys what little remains of Broward County voter confidence. It’s overdue.
