They Have So Many Empty Apartments, They’re Desperate

A report from the Daily Journal in California. “In San Mateo, rents have dropped an average of almost 15% since this time last year, according to reports from rental databases Zumper and Apartmentlist. The county’s median home sales price reached $1.8 million in August, up about $170,000 from April when the spring’s quarantine put a damper on what would typically be the start of the sales season. Once restrictions were lifted and transactions could begin again, prices gradually ascended through the summer — reaching a peak in August and since dropping down to a median sales price of $1.6 million in October.”

From Westside Today in California. “A recent report shows the average rent in a Westside city has decreased 13 percent since the start of the pandemic in March, a steeper drop than experienced in any Southern California city. According to a November report from Apartment List, Santa Monica rents have declined ‘decreased sharply’ by 12.8 percent in comparison to the same time last year. In addition, Santa Monica’s year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of -5.0 percent, as well as the national average of -1.4 percent.”

“According to Apartment List, Santa Monica’s annual 12.8 percent rent decline is the steepest decline of any city in Southern California included in the report. Only the Northern California cities of San Francisco (-23.4 percent), Mountain View (-21.1 percent) Sunnyvale (-17.9 percent), Redwood City (-15.4 percent) and San Mateo (-13.2 percent) experienced sharper declines than Santa Monica.”

“Other Southern California cities that experienced rent decreases this past year include Burbank (-9.7 percent), Los Angeles (-8 percent), Pasadena (-7.7 percent), West Hollywood (-7.3 percent) and Irvine (-4.8 percent). While the report did not include nearby cities of Beverly Hills and Culver City, other estimates show respective -7 percent and -5 percent decreases experienced the past year in those cities.”

The Wall Street Journal. “A number of New Yorkers are seizing on the exodus of renters during the pandemic and the market’s new softness to upgrade and cut costs within city limits. ‘Landlords right now are willing to negotiate,’ said Soraya Selles, a broker at the BOND New York firm. ‘They have so many empty apartments. They’re desperate.'”

“Manhattan had nearly 16,000 empty rental apartments as of September, which was 5.75% of the borough’s total apartment inventory. That’s the highest vacancy rate in at least 14 years, according to a report from brokerage Douglas Elliman and appraiser Jonathan Miller. The lower demand has pressured landlords to capitulate on price in a way most New Yorkers have never witnessed before.”

“Median rent is down 11% in Manhattan on an annual basis, according to the Elliman report, reaching its lowest point in nine years this fall. Landlords are also picking up broker fees typically paid by tenants. They are offering more deal sweeteners, such one or two months of free rent. A record 44.7% of apartments in Manhattan had discounted asking rent during the third quarter of 2020, according to StreetEasy.”

“Stephanie Goldklang was living in a 369-foot studio apartment and paying $2,500 a month in a doorman building on West 71st Street. With her lease ending, she found a 525-square-foot one-bedroom in a high-rise with new finishes and building amenities like community workspace and a clubhouse. It had been on the market for nearly $4,000 a month two years ago, according to a listing on StreetEasy, but Ms. Goldklang rented it for $2,800.”

The Ahwatukee Foothills News in Arizona. “The average sale price of an Ahwatukee home last month jumped 24 percent over the average of October 2019 while the number of units sold was up 27 percent in the same time frame. Properties are selling in a matter of days. While we are still seeing buyers who are not willing to overpay for a property, the number of October listings that required a price reduction declined to 30 percent of the closed listings.”

“So why are 35 percent of the properties that came on the market in October still waiting for an offer? The answer is in the numbers. When we look at the October sales summary of closed sales, we can see that 47, or 30 percent, required a price reduction to get an offer. Month after month, we find that 30-40 percent of the listings require a price reduction to get an offer.”

“Buyers will offer a few points above what the comparable sale data would indicate. However, they are not going to overpay even in this market. If they did, it would still have to appraise and while appraisers will come up a few points over comparable sales values, they will not appraise property at a price that is unreasonable and unsupportable. If a nice property stays on the market longer than similar, comparable properties, there is obviously a pricing issue and a price reduction is in order to get an offer.”

The Denton Record Chronicle in Texas. “New York City developer Park7 Group is facing millions in alleged unpaid construction work conducted by subcontractors for an unfinished five-story student housing complex on Scripture Street. Construction has begun for the project — a five-story, 155-unit single-room occupancy complex planned to feature multiple interconnected buildings — at a lot near the University of North Texas. Construction has been in progress at the Scripture Street lot since at least January, but Park7 now faces millions in unpaid construction work from several subcontractors.”

The Daily Iowan. “The fall season marks the time of year college students begin looking at apartments for the next year. Every student seems to have the same priorities when searching. What are the biggest concerns? Something affordable and close to campus. On the contrary, Iowa City seems to be focusing more on providing luxury apartments that most students cannot afford.”

“Financial experts recommend college students spend no more than 30 percent of their monthly income on rent. Studies show that the median salary for college students who have a job is $13,880 a year or about $1,157 a month. This means then the average college student can only afford around $347 to spend on rent each month.”

“However, buildings like Rise at Riverfront Crossing Rent can cost between $899 to $1,259 per person for a two bedroom and bathroom unit. In addition, a rental condo at the Edge starts at $2,850 per month for a two bedroom and bathroom unit. Buildings like these can cost students paying for $10,000 a year for rent-something which most cannot afford. This is also without factoring in utilities like water, electricity, and WiFi, which adds an additional cost.”

“Instead of investing in luxury apartment buildings, Iowa City and the UI should consider creating more affordable options for students to live in. We’re not looking for a fancy gym or study rooms — we just want something we can afford to live in.”

From Seattle PI in Washington. “Seattle ranked as one of the top 10 metro areas across the country that has invested the most in high-density housing, according to a new study. The study, from Porch, looked at 2019 building permits in cities and states across the U.S. and ranked locations based on the share of building permits issued for housing units in structures with five units or more. The study found in the Seattle metro area, more than 61% of building permits issued in 2019 were for high-density housing, putting the city in the sixth spot on the list. Nearly 30% of existing housing units in Seattle were in high-density structures, according to the study.”

“According to the study, the coronavirus pandemic could have an impact on the future of high-density housing. ‘For decades, metropolitan areas throughout the U.S. have invested in high-density housing — building more apartment buildings, condos, and other multi-unit complexes,’ the report said. ‘However, the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting this long-standing demand for housing in high-density areas and buildings. Even as the distancing measures from COVID ultimately subside, recent research suggests that people may continue to seek housing in less densely populated areas and structures. Cities that have invested heavily in high-density housing may have trouble finding residents to fill these new units.'”

    1. The reason I’m posting this is the media has a complete blackout of the facts. Election fraud is not difficult and it is common, just never on a scale like this.

      We are witnessing something like the 2nd Iraq war and September 11, 2001. They are trying to demoralize us. Don’t let them.

      1. DJT was right when he said “the media are the enemy of the American people.” 70+ million people who voted for him are not going to go down without a fight…

        1. A few weeks ago that crook and his commie running mate flew into Mesa, outside of Phoenix, for a rally. 8 people showed up. It was so embarrassing, they slinked out of town the next morning.

          But the President can give two days notice for a rally in Bullhead City and have tens of thousands show up. Then he flew down to Phoenix a few hours later to an even larger crowd.

          The support for the President in Arizona is off the chain. But these scumbags say not to believe my own eyes. There ain’t no way in hell the President lost Arizona.

          Has there ever been so much in yer face censorship? It’s across the board, seamless. The media is the enemy of the people. Fight back!

          1. Fascistbook and others are trying to blackout this news. Why bother if it’s in the bag?

            ‘With the 2020 elections marred by legal challenges and fraud allegations, some have used statistical analysis to try to determine if foul play was involved. In several states, analyses of election data indeed show statistically odd phenomena in the tallies of votes for the Democratic candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden.’

            ‘One of the most common arguments is that in some localities, vote counts for Biden violate Benford’s Law. The law has been used to identify fraudulent financial records and other illegal activities. Walter Mebane, a political science professor at the University of Michigan, used the law to back ballot-stuffing allegations in the 2009 Iran election (pdf). Some researchers also used the law to check for irregularities in the 2016 election in Wisconsin (pdf).’

            ‘While the result in Georgia and Florida generally adhered to Benford’s Law, there were significant deviations in votes for Biden in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Pennsylvania.’

            ‘One Twitter user went deeper on the Milwaukee analysis and found that in many city wards, votes counted after 3 a.m. on Nov. 4 went to Biden by a much larger margin than those counted before. Sometimes, the difference was as high as 40 percentage points.’

            ‘Another internet sleuth noticed that in Pennsylvania, nearly 10,000 votes were removed from President Donald Trump’s count at around 9 p.m. on Nov. 4. He said the losses came from three counties: Allegheny (-1,063 votes), Bucks (-2,972 votes), and Chester (-7,135 votes).’

            ‘Then, around 9 a.m. on Nov. 6, more than 27,000 votes were added to the count, nearly all of them to Biden, he said.’

            https://www.theepochtimes.com/statistical-anomalies-in-biden-votes-analyses-indicate_3570518.html

          2. Then, at 6:18 a.m., the firm posted another update, which added 158,902 votes to the Biden tally and 29,295 votes to Trump’s. Those votes split roughly 85 percent for Biden—an exceptionally high ratio.

            One explanation could be that those votes came from a deep-blue county and only included absentee ballots, which were expected to heavily favor Democrats.

            However, even absentee ballots in Washtenaw County, which went for Biden by the largest margin, split in his favor by less than 82 percent. In addition, the candidate only picked up 125,927 absentee votes there, so many would have had to have come from another county less favorable to Biden.

            Nothing to see here. Move along now.

      2. Your right that this power grab by fraud is like a military attack by enemies of the State, and that’s how I view it.

        I actually look at it like Pearl Harbor or Hilter declaring War on us.
        In the one case the attack is. by military force. In the current case the attack is by deceit, fraud, treason, and the enemies from within.

        Those shitbags Biden/Harris are puppets and I wonder when they will have that flake Harris take over China Joe..

      3. Media blackout, heh. I put in a comment on Marketwatch. Can you guess what happened?

      4. Media called the election for Pedo Joe minutes after Trump announced Rudy’s press conference on election fraud. There was nothing in terms of vote counts to precipitate that announcement at that time.

        The press conference was in an unlikely place, out front of a landscaping business (Four Seasons landscaping) in filthadelphia. Its likely the cameras on that buliding caught some demscum operatives committing voter fraud by destroying ballots or some such in the crematorium across the street. Very dem connected.

    2. At 31:30 in the video, he explains how Trump was comfortably ahead in all the 5 key battleground states, and suddenly all 5, AT THE SAME TIME, quit counting and went offline for 3 hours.

      Then when they came back, suddenly there were massive numbers of found votes and were all for one candidate and one candidate only (Biden). Statistically impossible.

      1. I was watching until late in the night and noticed when they stopped counting. It was odd. Then I checked first thing the next morning and EVERY STATE had flipped. It was then I knew the fix was in. My gut was all I needed. When you need 5 holes in one to win a golf match it’s over – unless you’re Joe “Magic” Biden. What a great ripoff of the American people. Just sickening. It’s a very, very dark time in our country, probably the worst ever.

  1. BTW, I’ll continue to expose the REIC fraud too. But I own this site, and can’t be smothered like Fascistbook and the scoundrel Dorsey are trying to do.

    1. Ben, sent a $50 donation your way in appreciation of you fighting the good fight against globalist media efforts to censor and suppress independent voices. HBB readers, now more than ever we need to be supporting citizen journalists who still speak truth to power, despite the increasing costs and risks. Ante up, bitchez…freedom isn’t free.

      1. Thanks, that’s helpful as google sent me an email 6 or 8 weeks ago saying they had taken down ads because a post was “dangerous or derogatory.” I looked at the post from May and there was nothing dangerous in it, and I’ve been derogatory of the REIC for the 16 years next month that I’ve had this blog. I ignored it as their cheap a$$es only paid a couple hundred bucks a month anymore.

        I would be doing this if I had a washing machine blog. Please send this link to anyone interested to get the word out. I have a subscription to ET and the more people who see the video at the top of the comments the better.

        1. taken down ads because a post was “dangerous or derogatory.”

          This level of censorship is disgusting and very telling in what these puppets and their masters are striving towards. F them! Matching Boo’s contribution. Thanks for your service Ben! Keep up the good fight in exposing these greedy fraud SOB’s!

          1. I noticed the censorship REALLY increased late in this election cycle. But the TDS-afflicted Hwy50 types were never censored.

  2. ‘Median rent is down 11% in Manhattan on an annual basis…They are offering more deal sweeteners, such one or two months of free rent’

    It’s down a lot more than 11%.

    ‘she found a 525-square-foot one-bedroom in a high-rise with new finishes and building amenities like community workspace and a clubhouse. It had been on the market for nearly $4,000 a month two years ago, according to a listing on StreetEasy, but Ms. Goldklang rented it for $2,800’

    Why yes it is down a lot more. That’s the spirit!

  3. ‘Park7 Group is facing millions in alleged unpaid construction work conducted by subcontractors for an unfinished five-story student housing complex’

    Recession proof!

    ‘This means then the average college student can only afford around $347 to spend on rent each month. However, buildings like Rise at Riverfront Crossing Rent can cost between $899 to $1,259 per person for a two bedroom and bathroom unit. In addition, a rental condo at the Edge starts at $2,850 per month for a two bedroom and bathroom unit. Buildings like these can cost students paying for $10,000 a year for rent-something which most cannot afford. This is also without factoring in utilities’

    This is an example of the lies we have to live with. Sure, go into massive debt so these dogs can rub out their 5% cap rates! Fudge em.

  4. ‘So why are 35 percent of the properties that came on the market in October still waiting for an offer? The answer is in the numbers. When we look at the October sales summary of closed sales, we can see that 47, or 30 percent, required a price reduction to get an offer. Month after month, we find that 30-40 percent of the listings require a price reduction to get an offer’

    So this price increase you talk about looks like another farce. Why not just wait a month and rake in that sweet equity UHS?

    ‘they are not going to overpay even in this market. If they did, it would still have to appraise and while appraisers will come up a few points over comparable sales values’

    Open discussion of appraisal fraud – check!

    ‘they will not appraise property at a price that is unreasonable and unsupportable’

    So they’ll commit a little fraud, just not a lot. This is however, why you should never believe these double digit gains if they need financing.

  5. So with all that factored in…

    Rents are, in reality, down 25% with no end in sight.

    “Median rent is down 11% in Manhattan on an annual basis, according to the Elliman report, reaching its lowest point in nine years this fall. Landlords are also picking up broker fees typically paid by tenants. They are offering more deal sweeteners, such one or two months of free rent. A record 44.7% of apartments in Manhattan had discounted asking rent during the third quarter of 2020, according to StreetEasy.”

  6. “Buildings like these can cost students paying for $10,000 a year”

    LOL@ I rented one house with three roommates at Football Factory State University where we each paid $131.25 a month in rent.

    The higher ed bubble popping is going to be glorious. And let’s not forget the center of the problem (hint: it’s not rock climbing walls at the student rec center), it’s bloated administrator (non-instructor) salaries.

    1. These super expensive student towers have been going into foreclosure since 2016. They paid too much for the land, and disregarded fundamentals. We’ve seen them flood some towns where enrollment is shrinking!

  7. Back in the day…

    College dorm rooms were metal bunk beds and a metal desk. In a cinder block room.

    With a bathroom at the end of the hall.

    And that was a step up from my army days 50 man open bay barracks with an open three toilet/three shower/three sink bathroom.

    It is amazing how quickly you can get used to it. And be productive and efficient…

    “Instead of investing in luxury apartment buildings, Iowa City and the UI should consider creating more affordable options for students to live in. We’re not looking for a fancy gym or study rooms — we just want something we can afford to live in.”

    1. We’re told we want to live in storage containers and dog-house sized “tiny homes.” That we should pay many multiples of what our parents did in income to prices. And they used 15 year loans, whereas we should knuckle down for 30 years. We have been conditioned to accept gotdam lies for decades!

      1. Son: “Daddy, does achieving final victory produce a sound?”

        Mr. Banker: “Yes, my son, and it sounds exactly like this:”

        “We have been conditioned to accept gotdam lies for decades!”

        Bahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

    2. And that was a step up from my army days 50 man open bay barracks with an open three toilet/three shower/three sink bathroom.

      We still had those in 1987 on Tank Hill at Fort Jackson and I lived in one for 8+ glorious weeks. Went back there in the early 90s for ARNG PLDC and they were still there and still being used. Now they are gone.

    3. In my observation, one of the things that kicked off this student housing binge was the pricing that the universities were charging for “…metal bunk beds and a metal desk. In a cinder block room. With a bathroom at the end of the hall.”

      The initial student developments were able to provide a higher quality of housing for about the same money as the overpriced dorm room on campus.

      The bloated admin salaries are certainly a contributing factor, as is the increase in student loans. The colleges and universities have done a masterful job of raising their tuition, fees, and the like to capture the increased dollar flow through student debt.

      These young kids are getting screwed.

      1. These young kids are getting screwed.

        Yes they are, and to add insult to injury, their vastly overpaid Cultural Marxist professors are indoctrinating them to view groups like BLM and Antifa as the good guys, instead of minions for the same globalists who destroyed their change for the kind of decent middle class life their parents probably enjoyed.

      2. Rutgers U [NJ] always said it was only breaking even on room & board. Now somehow with no students on the New Brunswick campus, it is losing $. The magic of intellectual thoughts.

    4. When I was a student, we were so poor that one day a burglar broke into our rental hovel, and we robbed him.

      That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

  8. From the lowlife Los Angeles Times:

    ‘Efforts by President Trump and his supporters to sow doubt in the integrity of election results continue to pose challenges for Facebook and other social media companies, as the vote-counting process remains underway.’

    ‘Twitter has worked to restrict tweets from the president that spread false narratives undermining the election, flagging many of his posts as potentially misleading, but baseless claims of election fraud have continued to percolate across the platform at speed.’

    ‘A Facebook group called Stop the Steal 2020, which attracted more than 360,000 members before it was suspended by the social giant Thursday, provided a notable example of how the false narrative is spreading.’

    ‘The group was created Wednesday by Women for America First, a political nonprofit founded in 2019 to organize protests against the impeachment proceedings against Trump. The group has gone on to organize anti-lockdown protests across the country.’

    ‘Facebook suspended the group before 11 a.m. Thursday.’

    “In line with the exceptional measures that we are taking during this period of heightened tension, we have removed the Group ‘Stop the Steal,’ which was creating real-world events,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “The group was organized around the delegitimization of the election process, and we saw worrying calls for violence from some members of the group.”

    ‘The social media company declined to answer additional questions about the timing of the decision, but it broadly aligns with election-related misinformation policies that Facebook laid out in preparation for what was expected to be a long vote-counting process.’

    What are you afraid of Fascistbook?

      1. I told someone about Maria Bartiromo’s Sidney Powell interview on Fox that was posted here yesterday and they said they searched it everyway they could and couldn’t find it last night.

        1. Exact same thing happened to me. I saw the title and subtitle somewhere, and I did many searches, nothing came up. This is how desperate they are. Even an interview with a credible attorney on fox gets blacked out. This is why I’m fighting.

          FOOK YOU google!!

          1. Some of us have been trying to warn people about the synagogue of satan members taking over every single media outlet and their desire to crush humanity but were uniformly censored at every turn, even here.

            Not looking so crazy now, is it?

          2. The prepper community is getting axed left and right now. It was clearly coordination. As soon as the AP declared Biden, they assumed they had free license to unleashed the dogs of censorship.

          1. If Tucker Carlson interviews Tony Bobulinski in a forest and it is not reported by the MSM, did the interview actually happen?

          2. Somehow Youtube has escaped the censorship gestapo. Yes, videos are being demonitized and taken down, but comment sections seem to still be operating.

        2. Jeff, that why I always read posts and look at tapes quickly before they take them down. It takes them a little bit of time to take the stuff down. . Michael Savage and Mark Kevin said they were getting all kind of stuff they were posting deleted.

  9. Well I hope bay area rents and prices crash! I used to live there and prefer the cooler weather to inland Sacramento heat. If bay area gets affordable and Sacramento expensive, I move there and enjoy the ocean and better weather. Will see.

  10. ‘The Trump campaign on Sunday described a sworn affidavit from a whistleblower in Nevada who alleges to have witnessed people inside a Biden-Harris van opening, filling out, and resealing mail ballots.’

    ‘The whistleblower, who the campaign did not identify, witnessed the alleged incident while on lunch break. He said the people inside the van were using letter openers to open the ballot envelopes. Once the people became aware they were being watched, they formed a human shield around the van to purportedly cover up the activity.’

    ‘The Biden campaign did not respond to a request for comment.’

    ‘Trump campaign representative Matt Schlapp detailed the allegation during a press conference in Las Vegas on Sunday. Schlapp described other instances of potential fraud, including 9,000 ballots cast by people who have moved out of the state, two examples of ballots cast using the identities of dead people, and voter registrations issued to minors under the age of 18.’

    ‘Schlapp said that the campaign is also working through documenting hundreds of cases in which Republicans were denied the chance to vote.’

    1. ‘Attorneys general in Missouri and Kentucky have joined a Republican lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania mail-in ballots before the U.S. Supreme Court, according to multiple reports. A spokesperson for Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt was cited by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as saying that Schmitt intends to add his name to an amicus brief—a legal document that can be filed by a non-party in a given case—in a lawsuit brought by the Pennsylvania Republican Party challenging the state’s Supreme Court decision to extend by three days the deadline for receiving mail-in ballots, provided they are postmarked by Election Day.’

      ‘Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron will also join the court filing, according to the Louisville Courier Journal, citing plans for attorneys general from Louisiana, Georgia, and Missouri to hold a virtual conference later Monday on what the outlet characterized as “major legal action.”

      ‘Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, who heads the Republican Association of Attorneys General, said in a series of statements on Twitter that the legal process should be allowed to play out before declaring a victor in the 2020 presidential election.’

      “No outlet or campaign should rush to calling the 2020 race until every LEGALLY cast vote is counted,” he wrote, adding, “While the mainstream media and big tech want to immediately declare a winner, the American people have and can again wait a couple days or weeks more to guarantee the legitimacy of this election.”

  11. Oh, Trump voters can’t protest election fraud or anything against the fake narratives. The Commie Looters peaceful protestors get any voice they want , but not the screwed over Trump voters.
    So people like Jack Dorsey get to decide to squash freedom of speech.
    Very disturbing how much power all these forces have.

    This is worse than monarch control that caused the American Revolution to begin with.
    These power hungry turds want to control your life in every way.
    This is not what America always stood for.
    When powers act in this way its by force rather than consent of the people because their ideas are evil to begin with.

    1. Even in blue California liberal narrative is far from a slam-dunk.

      “Both in California and across the country, we’re not witnessing a repudiation of Trumpism that we’d like to see,” said Vincent Pan, executive director of Chinese for Affirmative Action and a co-chair of the campaign.”

      Prop. 16: Why California voters refused to lift affirmative action ban
      https://www.sfchronicle.com/politics/article/Prop-16-Why-California-voters-refused-to-lift-15702261.php

      1. From the article:

        By Wednesday, the measure trailed by 12 percentage points, a slightly larger margin than the one in the 1996 election in which California outlawed many affirmative action programs….
        The “yes” campaign, which vastly outspent opponents and drew high-profile endorsements from across the political spectrum, was still assessing Wednesday what happened.

        We know what happened. The globalists didn’t execute their fraud operation in blue California, and therefore we saw the true mind of the voters.

  12. ‘Tens of thousands of unsealed, unsecured ballots—all cast for Democrats—arrived in vehicles with out-of-state license plates in Michigan’s Wayne County at 4:30 a.m. on the morning after Election Day, according to a lawsuit filed on Nov. 9.’

    “At approximately 4:30 a.m., tens of thousands of ballots were brought in and placed on eight long tables. Unlike the other ballots, these boxes were brought in from the rear of the room,” a sworn witness affidavit signed by Andrew Sitto states. “The same procedure was performed on the ballots that arrived at approximately 4:30 a.m., but I specifically noticed that every ballot I observed was cast for Joe Biden.”

    “I heard other challengers say that several vehicles with out-of-state license plates pulled up to the TCF Center a little before 4:30 a.m. and unloaded boxes of ballots,” Sitto testified.’

    ‘Sitto’s witness statement is one of six cited in a lawsuit (pdf) filed in Michigan on Monday by the Great Lakes Justice Center. The lawsuit alleges that poll workers were instructed to ignore signature mismatches, backdate ballots that arrived late, and push through ballots despite questions about their validity.’

    ‘Sitto said the election official subsequently blocked the windows of the room he was in with cardboard and refused to let him reenter after he left for a break.’

    ‘According to another sworn affidavit, the names on the ballots that arrived in the boxes did not appear on either the qualified voter file (QVF) or the supplemental lists for voters who registered shortly before Election Day.’

    “I saw the computer operators at several counting boards manually adding the names and addresses of these thousands of ballots to the QVF system,” Robert Cushman, a poll challenged in Detroit, said in a sworn affidavit. “When I asked what the possible justification was to counting ballots from unknown, unverified ‘persons,’ I was told by election supervisors that the Wayne County Clerk’s Office had ‘checked them out.’”

    ‘Cushman challenged the process of counting those votes and noted that the poll workers entered the birthdays for each of the purported voters as 1/1/1900.’

    “When I asked about this impossibility of each ballot having the same birthday occurring in 1900, I was told that was the instruction that came down from the Wayne County Clerk’s office,” Cushman said. “I was surprised and disappointed at the preponderance of dishonesty, irregularities, and fraudulent tactics at the November 3, 2020 election at the TCF Center.”

    ‘According to another poll watcher, Daniel Gustafson, the ballots arrived in mail boxes with open tops and no seals at the TCF Center in Detroit. “The ballot bins were not marked or identified in any way to indicate their source of origin,” Gustafson said.’

    1. ‘Sitto’s witness statement is one of six cited in a lawsuit (pdf) filed in Michigan on Monday by the Great Lakes Justice Center. The lawsuit alleges that poll workers were instructed to ignore signature mismatches, backdate ballots that arrived late, and push through ballots despite questions about their validity.’

      A sword statement. Under penalty of perjury. Born in 1900 should be easy to prove there was shenanigans out the ying yang.

      ‘Sitto said the election official subsequently blocked the windows of the room he was in with cardboard and refused to let him reenter after he left for a break’

      This is what the video with Pattie said the other day. They actually told everybody to take a break and then wouldn’t let them in afterward. That left two GOP observers for 150 counting tables. They had no food, no water.

      Pretty easy to prove if it didn’t happen. If it did, oh dear…

      1. ‘Jessy Jacob, a city of Detroit employee, signed an affidavit saying she was instructed to backdate mail ballots and not to look for any deficiencies with the ballots. She also claimed she was told not to ask for identification when voters arrived to vote in person. “I directly observed, on a daily basis, City of Detroit election workers and employees coaching and trying to coach voters to vote for Joe Biden and the Democrat party,” she says in the affidavit, adding that she witnessed them “encouraging voters to do a straight Democrat ballot.”

        ‘Several poll challengers also signed affidavits attesting to alleged election fraud. Zachary Larsen, an attorney and former assistant attorney general for the state of Michigan, said he saw an election official violating guidelines on how to count ballots by adjusting a secrecy sleeve meant to keep individuals’ information private and peeking into envelopes. A second official was also, at times, removing the secrecy sleeve to observe the ballot.’

        ‘Larsen said he conferred with another challenger, who said he observed similar irregularities. That challenger raised the issue with a supervisor, who asked, “why does it matter?” and “what difference does it make?”

        ‘Larsen identified another issue. He said he saw ballots being put aside as “problem ballots” because they lacked a secrecy sleeve even though other ballots that did not have the sleeve were being passed along and processed as normal. A supervisor said the ballots were put into the “problem ballots” box for efficiency, Larsen said.’

        ‘The former prosecutor also said he was illegally pressured to only observe ballot counting from a distance. Larsen and a colleague left for lunch and were allegedly not allowed back in when they tried re-entering the room. Officials said the room was full.’

        ‘Another poll challenger, Andrew Sitto, said he was at TCF Center from 9 p.m. on election night into the early hours of the next morning. Sitto said he thought everyone was going home at 4:30 a.m. on Nov. 4 but one of the men in charge of counting announced that a shipment of absentee ballots would be arriving and would have to be counted. Sitto said he overheard other challengers say that vehicles with out-of-state license plates pulled up outside the center just minutes before and unloaded boxes of ballots.’

        ‘Soon, tens of thousands of ballots were brought in and placed on eight tables. Unlike other ballots that had arrived, the boxes were brought in from the rear of the room. Every ballot Sitto witnessed being counted was cast for the Democratic presidential nominee. He also overheard counters say ballots they were counting were for Biden.’

        ‘A third poll challenger, Robert Cushman, said he witnessed thousands of ballots that were from unknown, unverified persons being counted. When he raised concerns, election supervisors told him the Wayne County Clerk’s Office had “checked them out.”

        ‘Cushman said he challenged the entire process because the names were not in the Qualified Voter File or supplemental documents. In addition, all the date of births were marked 01-01-1900, he alleged.’

        ‘The workers continued counting the ballots.’

        ‘The 78-page lawsuit was brought by the Great Lakes Justice Center on behalf of Cheryl Costantino and Edward McCall. While the case is being decided, the plaintiffs are seeking a temporary restraining order on ballot counting.’

        ‘David Kallman, senior counsel with the center, said in a statement: “This type of widespread fraud in the counting and processing of voter ballots cannot be allowed to stand. Michigan citizens are entitled to know that their elections are conducted in a fair and legal manner and that every legal vote is properly counted. Such rampant fraud cannot be undone. We ask the Court to enjoin the certification of this fraudulent election, void the election, and order a new vote in Wayne County.”

        https://www.ntd.com/election-fraud-lawsuit-alleges-backdating-of-ballots-took-place-in-michigan_526147.html

        1. ‘he challenged the entire process because the names were not in the Qualified Voter File or supplemental documents. In addition, all the date of births were marked 01-01-1900, he alleged….The workers continued counting the ballots’

          Should be easy to prove or disprove.

    2. I’m more interested in those out-of-state plates on the delivery vans. Sharpies and dead voters are nice, but it doesn’t buy you large amounts of votes. Like, 70,000 votes in PA.

      1. Pattie said they had a photo of one vehicle tag. Also said one was a Ferrari, and a black Mercedes they looked up and it was reported stolen. A couple of things: I looked up this lawsuit and only the Epoch Times sites were returned. So is the media going to be able to cover up this lawsuit as it moves forward? I doubt it.

        Where are the sworn statements saying this didn’t happen? There had to be cameras around.

        Showing up at 4 AM indicates they were getting desperate at the end. People not registered to vote being counted by the tens of thousands, not difficult to get those thrown out. Last gasp effort, IMO.

        1. ‘Voting machines used in Michigan’s Wayne County appeared to have been connected to the internet, according to a sworn affidavit signed by a poll watcher.’

          ‘At approximately 11 p.m. on Nov. 3, Patrick Colbeck observed an icon identifying an active internet connection on the screens of the computers used to tabulate and adjudicate ballots.’

          “All it takes to confirm the connectivity status of a Windows computer is to roll the cursor over the LAN connection icon in the bottom right comer of the display,” Colbeck’s sworn affidavit states. “When there is no internet connection, a unique icon showing a cross-hatched globe appears. I proceeded to review the terminal screens for the Tabulator and Adjudicator computers and I observed the icon that indicates internet connection on each terminal. Other poll challengers can attest to this observation as required.”

          ‘Colbeck, a poll challenger and former Michigan state senator, said that the area had wireless routers set up with networks called “CPSStaff” and “CPSStaff” broadcast in the area. He added that a security incident that occurred at 10 a.m. on Election Day may have been caused by the voting equipment being connected to the internet.’

          ‘Colbeck’s affidavit is one of six sworn witness statements cited in a lawsuit (pdf) filed in Michigan on Nov. 9. The lawsuit alleges numerous instances of voter fraud. According to the court documents, after election officials announced that the last batch of absentee ballots had been received, trays of unsealed, unsecured ballots without envelopes arrived at the TCF Center.
          michigan ballots.’

          “There were tens of thousands of these absentee ballots, and apparently every ballot was counted and attributed only to Democratic candidates,” the lawsuit states. The ballots allegedly arrived in vehicles with out-of-state license plates, a separate sworn affidavit states.’

          ‘Elections officials instructed poll workers to backdate ballots that arrived past the deadline, ignore signature mismatches, and push through ballots despite questionable validity, the lawsuit alleges.’

          “I processed absentee ballot packages to be sent to voters while I worked at the election headquarters in September 2020 along with 70-80 other poll workers,” Jessy Jacob, a Michigan poll worker wrote in a sworn affidavit. “I was instructed by my supervisor to adjust the mailing date of these absentee ballot packages to be dated earlier than they were actually sent. The supervisor was making announcements for all workers to engage in this practice.”

          ‘Voters who showed up at the polling site but could not be found on the voter files had ballots assigned to them from a random name on the qualified voter files, according to another sworn affidavit.’

          “The fraud and blatant disregard for chain of custody observed at the Detroit Absentee Voter Counting Board may be responsible for well over the 146,123 votes currently promoted by media outlets as the Biden margin of victory in Michigan, not to mention the margin in favor of Peters in the U.S. Senate Race,” Colbeck wrote in an email to The Epoch Times.’

          https://www.theepochtimes.com/election-systems-in-michigan-county-appeared-to-be-connected-to-internet-sworn-affidavit_3571578.html

          1. ‘The supervisor was making announcements for all workers to engage in this practice’

            “Yer Honor, for my next witness…”

          2. I knew it was bad, but this is even worse than I thought it could be. I read many corporate news sources to stay apprised of the given Narrative du Jour, and the level of fraud is being summarily ignored.

            The media *IS* the enemy of the American people. Instead of throwing a brick through the window of Starbucks like the media’s brownshirt fascists do, all I have to do is NOT GIVE THEM MONEY.

            No cable TeeVee (going on close to 15 years without it), no Netflix, no magazine or newspaper subscriptions, no movie theater tickets (I made an exception to see Joker last year), ad-blockers on both phone and PC browsers (only view YouTube via web, not on their app).

            STOP GIVING THEM MONEY, even if only passively. I understand our blog host subscribes to publications to better give us our dose of daily crater, but the rest of us don’t have to. Don’t give them money, it’s easy, and your life will be better from it.

          3. STOP GIVING THEM MONEY

            The problem is that they are propaganda outlets, meaning that the enemy will subsidize them.

          4. Unfortunately you can’t boycott them out of existence. The Star Wars/Marvel community discovered this the hard way.

            The saying used to be “Get woke, go broke.” Now it’s “Get woke, keeping making shi!t with printed money anyway.”

          5. Colorado and Oxy you are correct. But I am one person, with money, and I don’t have to give these people / organizations / corporations my money.

            I took an expensive vacation to Florida last winter before the ‘Rona to celebrate a milestone birthday in the family, and to me, it was worth it.

            Having zero debt, and not spending money, is the greatest feeling in the world. Just because I have it doesn’t mean I need to spend it on something else.

            There’s nothing out there I want or need that requires spending money. It is a feeling of freedom that so many people will sadly never know.

          6. The Star Wars/Marvel community discovered this the hard way.

            FWIW, Disney (Star Wars/Marvel) is on its knees. It lost almost $5B last quarter and IIRC they report next week, and it will be a lot of red ink. Marvel has been hit with big layoffs. Disney CEO Bob Iger had a hissy fit when His Newsomeness told him he still can’t reopen Disneyland.

          7. But I am one person, with money, and I don’t have to give these people / organizations / corporations my money.

            As a matter of principle I do the same. But I don’t kid myself, I know that my personal boycotts have little effect. For every boycotter like me there are ten people willing to borrow up the wazoo to buy the toys, take the trips and shop until they drop.

    1. 401, I hear people talking about pulling their kids from public school, withholding their taxes, not using any big Corps for products, only buy American made, disconnect from Facebook and Twitter. Turn off media except for the very few , shore up on supplies, food etc, turn off Hollywood fake narrative shows and Pro China anti American sports.
      I know that’s a change but how else do you deflate their power. They wanted to take your power .
      Any other suggestions?

        1. Yes and I just posted above minutes ago before I read these comments.

          I’m not a rock thrower or arsonist. Not giving money to the forces that want to take away my freedom is what I can do and have been doing and will continue doing.

          A friend of mine lost his father and brother in the civil war in Yugoslavia and moved to the United States in his late teens as a war refugee. If we ever get to that point, the tone and direction of this discussion could change.

          P.S. Read more books.

          1. Not giving money to the forces that want to take away my freedom is what I can do and have been doing and will continue doing.

            Unfortunately they will pass legislation to further confiscate your hard earned money and give it to more deserving BIPOCs

          2. Since public libraries have gone to crap, I’ve been treating my used bookstore as a library. I buy a pile for $15-20 and when I’m done I donate them back to be sold again. There are no due dates, and they have a better collection than the real library anyway. Much better than dodging the game-playing kids and the homeless.

          3. 401, I cut off most of these entities 15 years ago when they bailed out the Banks in 2009. I never was a debt donkey
            Your suggestion to read is great. I started studying history and other stuff because I strangely thought I better do it now while the getting is good. Now they are trying to rewrite history and ban books and words and cram a false narrative down our throats. I tend to read stuff they haven’t got to yet. Is this 1984 or what.
            This fake call to unity by Biden is a outrage in light of all they have done to steal this Country by Hilter type methods. Unreal

  13. According to a November report from Apartment List, Santa Monica rents have declined ‘decreased sharply’ by 12.8 percent in comparison to the same time last year.

    Not coincidentally, Santa Monica, a wealthy enclave that prides itself on its progressiveness, discovered the hard way that staffing emergency services with diversity hires might end badly when BLM and its mostly peaceful protests come to town.

  14. “Manhattan had nearly 16,000 empty rental apartments as of September, which was 5.75% of the borough’s total apartment inventory.

    Is that a lot?

  15. The lower demand has pressured landlords to capitulate on price in a way most New Yorkers have never witnessed before.”

    You ain’t seen nuthin’ yet, New Yawkers.

    1. Zillow is scrubbing data like an Irish washerwoman. The property’s history doesn’t even show the last sale price. Luckily, realtor.com is a little better:

      Did they really do this reno in two weeks? It’s possible, but more likely the reno overlapped with the contract period. Who uses flooring material on the side of an island? Oh, right, flippers. And sorry, but a gas stove in the middle of the room is a deal-breaker for me.

      1. a gas stove in the middle of the room

        The wires for the future exhaust hood are dangling from the ceiling.

        1. Imagine your kid homework on the peninsula, on someone dropping off groceries like a cereal box, while you’re make grilled cheese on the open-flame stove. 💥

          1. I have a gas cooktop (not on an island). Stuff gets dumped next to it all the time. So far nothing has caught fire.

          1. Ive been out there too from the Grand canyon the painted desert, Yuma to tucson, in 110 degrees in a plymouth station wagon with no AC… in my youth, even went to san felipe and i remember out in the middle of nowhere the end of the road and there were parking meters there.

      1. Well, there’s always that dark brown run in the bedroom to complement the gray walls. 🙄 In my area most of the Cold War houses have hardwood flooring. That still doesn’t stop flippers from painting the walls that flat dimensionless gray. Looks terrible. But that’s what is in the 5-gallon buckets at Home Depot. I long for the days of Behr Swiss Coffee.

    2. “Look at the photos of the interior and compare that with the exterior and shacks around it.”

      Yeah, that blend of black, gray and beige is way out of place in an arid region. A blend of desert brown, orange and yellow would better fit the region, but not in that neighborhood, which should have a broken-down junker on a wobbling bumper jack with a couple of chickens on the roof.

        1. A few years ago you could buy a shack like that for 20k.

          And for good reason. I wouldn’t want to live there for free. That’s the kind of gotforsaken place where you blow your brains out.

  16. “Seattle ranked as one of the top 10 metro areas across the country that has invested the most in high-density housing, according to a new study.

    What is it with libtard malgovernance and their obsession with high-density housing? Is it easier to control people in such structures?

    1. Well, they tend to not have cars, so if you shut down public transport everyone is pretty much stranded and at .gov’s mercy.

      1. Speaking of which, I hope Redpilled Redhead got a copy of 1984 before they ban it. I got rid of my hard copy in a book purge and bought the i-book version. Next time I’m at the used bookstore I might get another hard copy.

          1. Unfortunately, studying to become and practicing as a patent attorney has ruined what little enjoyment I had in reading.

  17. The Epoch Times: GSA Responds to Biden Campaign: ‘Ascertainment Has Not yet Been Made’ on Power Transfer

    As the campaign for Joe Biden attempts to push the General Services Administration (GSA) to approve a transfer of power, the agency said that it has not made an assessment of the situation.

    “An ascertainment has not yet been made. GSA and its Administrator will continue to abide by, and fulfill, all requirements under the law,” a spokesperson with the GSA told Epoch Times on Monday morning.

    The agency said that the GSA administrator, Emily Murphy, will only initiate the transition when a “clear winner is clear based on the process laid out in the Constitution.”

    1. Given that there are more chicas than sistahs, she was probably right. Hispanics need to wait another 20 years, then they’ll have the numbers to call the shots.

    1. It’s too bad JFK wasn’t as honest as Keith Richards and leave behind some quips combining adultery and prescription drug addiction.

  18. So, what should we expect beyond more $1200 checks in the next round of stimulus (assuming the left’s heist is successful)?

    More $1000 a week for the unemployed?
    Bailouts for malgoverned states and cities?
    Bailouts for state and municipal pensions?
    More Fed balance sheet expansion?

      1. underground jobs… a 5-10% national sales tax will be up next. Let alone a 25-50 cent gas tax increase, car registrations to double, all so they dont increase payroll taxes….and they can brag about it.

          1. a 25-50 cent gas tax increase

            Oh, I expect that to be much, much worse. Think at least $2 a gallon in new taxes. It’s to save the world, you know?

          1. From what I have heard most of Europe is locked down and the borders are sealed again.

            As far as Prime Minister Clouseau, anything goes.

      2. “The unemployment rate has dropped below 7%.”

        Indeed, after six months those data are not included. The U3 rate is the most commonly reported rate of unemployment in the United States and represents the number of people actively seeking a job. The U6 includes discouraged, underemployed, and unemployed workers in the country.

    1. Easy credit definitely inflated the prices of tri-cities (Pasco, Kennewick and Richland) housing. But the area’s economic gut-punch was when the Superfund money dried-up at the nearby Hanford Nuclear reservation.

      1. Superfund money dried-up at the nearby Hanford Nuclear reservation.

        I know of a family whose father got a massive settlement for exposure there. They bought a few small businesses and land with the money. The kids are total losers who just lived off it all.

        1. Exposure there was widely understood, and the high wages reflected it. The deal was, you put in your five years, stack cash and move on. But there were the under-educated souls who lacked planning skills, had fewer opportunities as they aged and like covid-19 thought they could beat the odds. Then they play the victim card.

  19. Oregon elections director fired after he details problems

    SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon’s elections director was abruptly fired in a text message by the secretary of state after he pointed out serious issues with the state’s aging and vulnerable technology for running elections.

    Elections Director Stephen Trout learned in a text message Thursday night — as his department and county elections officials were still counting votes from the Nov. 3 election — that he was out.

    On Friday, Secretary of State Bev Clarno, a Republican appointed to the position by Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, announced to county clerks and other elections officials in Oregon’s 36 counties that “today is also Steve Trout’s last day with the Agency.”

  20. Tonight Tucker is talking about CNN and others making threats to those who don’t obey and how future employers would look upon those who didn’t accept the election results.

    1. Anybody who has been reading here for a while knows it isn’t a surprise. Do they want Yugoslavia? Do they want South Africa?

      History is fun. Turn off the TeeVee.

    2. These people are truly insulting and dangerous. Its almost like a rise in the most base of emotions and lack of logic , using false narratives and demanding compliance to this made up deceit. Very Hilter and Commie tactics. The real power brokers behind the power grab know it’s brainwashing, But ,the vicious true believers that have been brainwashed are the crazed for evil. The ends justify the means they are taught, as well as manufactured hate at a manufactured enemy, like Hilter projected on the Jews.
      Unreal, just unreal.

      1. Big Mike is setting the tone when it comes to demonizing Les Deplorables. History records what invariably happens after the collectivists demonize entire categories of “enemies of the people.”

        “Let’s remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division. We’ve got a lot of work to do to reach out to these folks in the years ahead and connect with them on what unites us,” the former First Lady [Michelle Obama] wrote.

          Fock you, beyatch. How does that sound?

        1. I guess the comment nesting is off, but I was responding to

          “CNN and others making threats to those who don’t obey and how future employers would look upon those who didn’t accept the election results.”

          One of the goals/objectives of the Trump Accountability project is to identify and blackball anyone who took a paycheck for supporting Trump. That includes political preference as a justification for denying employment.

          1. oxide, do you realize how Stalin and Hilter punishment for political desent is. The black list. Outrageous, but again they are showing their vicious true colors.

    1. I think it has more to do with people cutting the cord than anything. That, and the fact the ESPN has almost no means of generating its own content so there’s no way to attract the remaining eyeballs when sporting events are scarce. You’d think that Disney would lend some creative muscle, right? I think Disney itself has a growing creative deficit.

      1. CBS just mandated that 50% of the cast in its reality shows have to be “diverse.” TeeVee is about to become even more unwatchable as these “woke” mandates get implemented across the board. Cut the cord, starve the beast!

      2. I haven’t watched a single football game this season due to the NFL adopting the “woke” culture; phuc ’em!

          1. I will admit that I did sneak a peak on Sunday. What little I saw of the game was forgettable. What caught my eye were the TV ads. If I was a foreigner who only got to see America through the lens of those TV ads, I would think that all American couples are mixed race.

            Anyway, after about 10 minutes I had seen enough and turned it off.

    Fox News Cuts Away From Kayleigh McEnany’s Baseless Claims of Democratic Party Voter Fraud

    Lindsey Ellefson | November 9, 2020 @ 2:47 PM

    “Whoa, whoa whoa. I just think we have to be very clear,” he said. “She’s charging the other side is welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue showing you this.”

    (1:28 video is worth watching)

    https://www.thewrap.com/fox-news-cuts-kayleigh-mcenany-claims-democratic-voter-fraud/

    1. I’ve already seen one YouTube comment to the effect of “Well, it was on Fox News, therefore it’s got to be right, after all, they are the conservative network, right? Right? RIGHT?

      Just like we predicted. Build up a reputation, and then eff it up while pretending to still adhere to the old reputation to convince the regulars. The same tactic was used on everything from Star Wars to “safe” mortgage-backed securities too. 🙄 But as I said, few people are falling for this, except maybe the very elderly who signed up for reverse mortgages too.

      1. Keeping the population distracted with D vs R so it’s not focused on nationalism vs globalism. Ds and RINOs are globalists.

        1. Red Thats part of it, but to me its the total repudiation of MLK by always putting race first and not behavior. Once you put behavior first the leftist progressive agenda crumbles. Ohbahma made that clear by his “if i had a son” when they sealed trayvons school records the day after he was shot. Then his parents sued to keep it out of the Zimmerman trial and focus only on the race issue.

          We can go on and on mike brown was never going to college, eric garner had 30 arrests so why didn’t he go quietly on his 31St.

        2. R & D are two hairy ass cheeks around the same stinking bunghole: predatory globalism. Both parties are on the make and on the take, with no true principles or convictions other than a desire to fool enough of the sheeple to earn another turn at the trough. They serve only their .1% masters, not the rubes who elected them. The sooner the sheeple figure that out, the better.

  22. Average Rents in London Are at Their Lowest Since 2014, Research Says

    https://www.vice.com/en/article/v7meyb/average-rents-in-london-are-at-their-lowest-since-2014-research-says

    London rents have fallen to levels not seen since 2014, creating a two-tiered system between the capital and the rest of the country, which continues to see rents rise despite the pandemic.

    According to letting website Zoopla’s September UK Rental Market Report, average rents in London have fallen by 5.2 percent, whereas outside the capital, rents have risen by 1.7 percent.

    The report attributes the fall in London prices to changing demand from renters during the pandemic, which has seen many flee the expensive capital while work from home policies are implemented.

      Well, the NY Times is owned by crony capitalists. I’m sure that any “reporters” who don’t toe the line will be shown the door.

    Versus … his x16 repubican opponents:

    Here’s how Trump has dispatched the contenders who stepped into the ring with him:

    #5 Dec 29th 2015 George Pataki, former BY Governor:

    The former New York governor called the Republican race a “reality gong show” in November, and the gong sounded on him several weeks later. The three-term governor couldn’t even reach the 1% threshold in national polls to make the undercard debate stage in November. He was among those Trump didn’t want to drop out because they were beatable. When he did, Pataki said the country needed the unity it had on 9/11. “”On that day and the days that followed, we weren’t black or white, rich or poor, Republican or Democrat, we were just Americans. We need to recapture that spirit.”

    #6 Feb 1st 2016, Mike Huckabee former Arkansas Governor:

    The former Arkansas governor had won the Iowa caucuses the last time he ran, in 2008, but he barely made a showing this time around and dropped out on the night of the caucuses because, he joked, “voters are sick of me.” He said in January that he found the race “bewildering … because it’s almost as if the more experience, the more preparation one has had for this job, it’s almost like it’s a detriment.” A few days before quitting the race, Huckabee lamented media coverage of Trump, saying it was drowning out his message.

    #7 Feb 3rd 2016, Rand Paul Kentucky US Senator:

    The Kentucky senator also dropped out after a poor showing in the Iowa caucuses. He had hoped Libertarian support would help propel him toward the nomination, but he never built the kind of following he needed. Paul issued a three-page statement in August accusing Trump of being a “fake conservative,” and the billionaire quickly hit back calling Paul “truly weird” and likening him to a “spoiled brat without a properly functioning brain.” Notably, Paul is one of the few candidates who has said he will support Trump if he’s the nominee.

    #8 Feb 3rd 2016, Rick Santorum, Pennsylvania US Senator:

    In 2012, the former Pennsylvania senator ran as a crusader for Christian values in 2012, scored an upset victory in the Iowa caucuses and was the last major candidate standing between Mitt Romney and the nomination. In 2016, Santorum could not catch fire a second time. He never got high enough in the polls to stand on the same debate stage as Trump, though he and Huckabee weirdly showed up at a Jan. 28 veterans fundraiser Trump organized as part of a boycott of a Fox News debate. Santorum took only 1% in the Iowa caucuses Feb. 1 and quit the race a few days later. Santorum promptly went on MSNBC to endorse Marco Rubio, only to admit that he could not name anything Rubio had accomplished.

    #8 – # 16 👆 to bee continued tomorrow … Lord.willin.&.thee.crick.don’t rise!

  24. New York Times — Businesses Trying to Rebound After Unrest Face a Challenge: Not Enough Insurance

    “The night after her shop was broken into, she stayed inside to guard it and watch what was happening. She was shocked, she said, to see so many white protesters destroying property in the name of Black lives. And they seemed to be well-off young people, with little sense of what a storefront means to a family like hers.

    “It’s some blue-haired, latte-drinking hippie in Seattle coming here to raise hell while they go home to their nice beds,” said Ms. Tolliver, who is in her late 50s. “They don’t care about any of us.”

    1. I can only imagine how insurance rates for businesses in Democrat-maladministered cities are going to skyrocket, since Soros-installed DAs refuse to press charges against the few “mostly peaceful protesters” the police manage to arrest.

      1. Note how many of the owners of destroyed businesses are immigrants. I’m surprised they allowed this to be published.

        1. Note how many of the owners of destroyed businesses are immigrants.

          Hopefully they will learn to not open their next business in a sh!thole.

  25. Not quoted in the excerpts but this article does include references to “Biden’s victory” because Real Journalists are liars:

    “After the presidential race was called for Democratic candidate Joe Biden, Republicans’ trust in the election system plummeted, while Democrats’ trust soared, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.

    Multiple new organizations announced Biden as the election winner on Saturday after four days of counting in several swing states. Following the news, 70 percent of Republicans now say they don’t believe the 2020 election was free and fair, a stark rise from the 35 percent of GOP voters who held similar beliefs before the election.

    Among Republicans who believed that the election wasn’t free and fair, 78 percent believed that mail-in voting led to widespread voter fraud and 72 percent believed that ballots were tampered with — both claims that have made a constant appearance on the president’s Twitter thread. Like President Donald Trump, a majority of the people that thought the election was unfair, 84 percent, said it benefited Biden.”

    https://www.politico.com/news/2020/11/09/republicans-free-fair-elections-435488

    70 percent of 70 million is 50 million voters. What are the logistics and necessary infrastructure of incarcerating 50 million kulaks in the re-education camps?

    1. What are the logistics and necessary infrastructure of incarcerating 50 million kulaks in the re-education camps?

      I dunno, 401, but we probably should be keeping an eye on FEMA “requests for proposals” to build new infrastructure. You know, for those displaced by natural disasters.

    2. And that was a poll from left-wing Politico — remember Trump supporters either lie or don’t answer. I would bet that the number is closer to 90% think it was unfair and 100% of those think it benefitted Biden.

    1. I know A LOT of people who have boycotted Nike. I never wore the brand so I can’t take credit. I wouldn’t from here on out, though.

    1. The city just needs to contact Omni Consumer Products. I understand that they have a promising law-enforcement product in active development. They just need a few “volunteers”…

      (…or maybe just get some ED-209s?)

      1. 😀 I figured it had to be Robocop.
        Man’s best friend turned into a robot weapon (Boston Dynamics, Metalhead/Black Mirror) is the worst.

    1. They’re canceling Trump and anybody who supports him. The fix was in way before the election. This is too big to not blow up in their faces.

    2. Almost every letter generated by the government will include a citation of whatever law (USC United States Code) or regulation (CFR Code of Federal Regulations) is applicable. This letter includes no citations at all. Plus, the language is distinctly non-lawyer like.

      This sounds like a made-up letter.

      1. sounds like a made-up letter

        Or there’s no legal basis for it and it’s meant to intimidate. I agree that the specific Michigan law should be cited.

  26. Contract law means nothing in the #NewNormal:

    “Earlier this fall, Democratic Senators Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren introduced a resolution urging the next president to immediately cancel up to $50,000 in student debt. Schumer reiterated his support for that proposal in an interview with author Anand Giridharadas, arguing that student debt cancellation could be part of a suite of FDR-style proposals in the first 100 days of a Biden administration.

    “We believe that Joe Biden can do that with the pen as opposed to legislation,” Schumer said of student debt cancellation in the interview.

    1. The student debt isn’t “canceled.” It’s transferred to taxpayers like me, who are already paying for our own kids to go college.

      F**k you, Democrat collectivist scum.

      1. This is the most direct route to a taxpayer revolt in which the Free Sh*tters discover how badly outgunned they are.

        It just keeps getting worse every day.

      2. won’t even get a thank you All I got was a note from the lender saying my loan obligation had been paid in full.

    1. The taxpayers get charged for their looting. It’s a looting game with their rigged markets and monopolies with the Government as their pawn.
      I don’t believe that more than 30% actually went for the fake crook Biden . This election was stolen and it’s most likely that 75million went for Trump.
      Biden and Harris didn’t campaign, they didn’t even answer questions. Fake polls, fake media, suppression of valid news and a rigged election is all you need .
      They just stuck a finger at about 75 million people in favor of their evil top down control .
      The 4 years of fake news , Russian Hoax, fake impeachment, fake narratives didn’t take Trump out, so last resort rigged election using Covid-19 to pull it off.
      The medical Cartel wasn’t about to let Trump reduce Pharma prices or change the Obamacare Commie Medical Monopoly , which is another rigged system to loot.
      Capitalism is dead, it’s all rigged systems.
      The 2009 Bail out of lawlessness was a portent of what was to come. The rigged Obamacare was the next step in the Medical Cartel control of cattle. Now they have you locked down and medical false narratives regarding Covid 19 is used to
      take your freedom and rig a election.
      The big players are going to get the lion shares of the bail outs, or the bribed parties on Commie programs. The big Corps will pick up the lion share of the small business destroyed by the lock downs.
      All I can say is that there will be a unpredictable affect from such a power grab that cancels IMHO about 75million voters.
      The next question is will the High Court go along with this fraud. Don’t know.

      1. The big Corps will pick up the lion share of the small business destroyed by the lock downs.

        Yup. Say goodbye to your independent tire dealer, muffler shop, printer, restaurant, baker, coffee shop, etc.

        1. In Colorado,
          China is rejoicing in their boy China Joe making it possible for them to destroy the USA.
          Some people think that’s why they went after Flynn who knew it was China that was the threat.

    1. thinking?

      They have been told for four+ years that he is a horrible person, motivated only by greed and vanity. That he is a congenital liar and commits two serious crimes every single day. Anything, anything is worth doing if it gets him out of office, to save the country and such. Now they are told that Joe is a really nice guy. He will heal the nation and make other countries like us again.

      And there’s a puppy!

  27. When i arrived from the USSR about 39 years ago, i thought that i will live in the country where freedom, democracy and law is a number one priority. I feel that things have changed quite a bit. Are we really going to lose all this after so many in the US fought for the rights of the citizens? We are teaching other countries how to do it, and here we ourselves are facing this horrendous fraud? Unbelievable!
    Wonder when are we going to start building gulag’s for those who worked in Trump administration or supported him?

    1. We are teaching other countries how to do it, and here we ourselves are facing this horrendous fraud?

      Your points are all valid. All I can say regarding this one is I don’t think we’ve taught anybody how to have a true honest election where their decision will really steer the country in quite a while now.

    2. Americans deep down are different from all other people in history. Americans are independent but can turn on a dime and unite with a common purpose, like they did in World War II. And the other difference is the Second Amendment. There are more guns in America than there are people and over a trillion rounds of ammunition. There’s going to be a rally and march in Washington DC this weekend. Tens of thousands (at a minimum) will show up. How hard will it be to round up that mob if they all came armed to the teeth with 400 rounds in clips (M1 Garands) and magazines (for everything else) loaded down in bandoliers?

      In 1942 under FDR’s Executive Order 9066 they rounded up 110,000 Japanese Americans and herded them off to remote “relocation camps”. Japanese Americans were a tiny minority hopelessly outnumbered. And besides, there were plenty of ordinary Americans who made sure that atrocities wouldn’t occur to them.

      How hard is it going to be to round 70,000,000 Americans who have 10 times the number of firearms than the Soy Boy Elite Antifa “Warriors”? It will never happen.

      1. “In 1942 under FDR’s Executive Order 9066 they rounded up 110,000 Japanese Americans…”

        IIRC, FDR was a Democrat.

        1. Yes FDR was a Democrat. But he was more a product of the age that still regarded all Japanese as being “oriental”. Also, the fact that the majority of the immigrant Japanese had only arrived in this country less than 50 years prior, people like FDR could not fathom that Japanese Americans could have assimilated into American culture. Unlike today, back in the old days of America ALL immigrants to America were expected to assimilate and become “Americans” with a common language, culture, civics and values.

          Today with this nonsense called “multiculturalism”, ethnic and racial minorities are expected to retain their “color” or whatever, they never can become Americans like “white” people. Minorities that do regard themselves as simply “Americans” are called names like Uncle Toms or sell-outs and are disgraced for being traitors to their true culture and identity.

          Well back then the second generation “Nisei” Japanese Americans (first born generation in America) were very much American culturally and identity wise. My dad was a Nisei and he was as American as John Wayne–he played starting full back in his high school football team and his first language was English (he could barely speak Japanese properly). He knew the Constitution front to back and read “The Federalist Papers” in high school and could put any modern high school student to shame in a contest of the founding principles of America.

          He ended up a sergeant in the Army in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and fought in Italy and France. His commanding officer was a Texas A&M graduate and all of his officers at first were white of similar backgrounds. But there was no friction, discrimination or “racism”. In fact, my dad experienced no racism in the Army–sure there were some misunderstandings, but even though the vast majority of Americans in the Army had never met or even seen a Japanese American, they didn’t treat Nisei like my dad differently because the Nisei were really Americans just like German Americans and Italian Americans.

          During the war “Talk was cheap”, my dad used to say. The only thing that counted was how an outfit performed in combat and the 442nd performed as well or better than any outfit in Europe. Their reputation preceded them where ever they went so there was nobody brave enough to give them any crap since they were a lot tougher than the average G.I. And the 442nd had the casualties and medals to prove their valor–they bought and paid for the privilege to be called “Americans”. Anybody can say that they are “Americans”, but how many people ever really prove that by putting their life on the line? That’s how my dad used to talk and what he meant when he said that “That talk was Cheap.” The War wasn’t like Hollywood’s version or “Saving Private Ryan”, okay? There were no “tough guys” or hero types in an infantry company. In fact, guys that were that way in training invariably ended up $hitting in their pants when the first 88 artillery shell landed. The best soldiers were the quiet ones who kept their heads even as the MG-42 machine gun bullets flew inches over their helmets.

          Back in those days Americans had more in common with each other than what you see today in this divisive liberal multicultural world.

        2. Even though FDR signed EO 9066, the decision to intern Japanese Americans on the West Coast was complex. Everybody today just says that FDR was a racist just like the rest of the people in government and the civilian population. This is not true. The Attorney General, Francis Biddle, was completely against the mass round-up and removal. He waged a bitter fight against it arguing that there was this problem with the “Constitution.”

          The main driver for the removal was Lt. Gen. DeWitt who was the Western Defense Commanding General. In the end Biddle lost the argument but refused to have the Justice Department do the removal. The actual removal of Japanese Americans and the setting up of the assembly centers was an Army operation.

          The War Relocation Authority, a civilian agency, was set up to build and operate the Relocation Camps. The first director of the WRA was Milton Eisenhower, brother of Dwight Eisenhower. But he quit after only 90 days. The camps were never run by the War Department, they were run by civilians and only had small Army security details. Later the camps were put under the Department of the Interior. Civilians were hired to operate the camps and supply personnel. The camps were never like POW camps or prisons.

          Great efforts were made to accommodate the internees with everything from schools, hospitals, vocational and adult school classes, entertainment and recreational facilities. It didn’t take very long for the Japanese Americans to change barren landscapes and the camp barracks which were only built to “temporary” housing specifications into a somewhat decent place to live. And as soon as the front doors to the camps were closed, the back doors opened to let out internees.

          Japanese Americans college students were the first to leave followed by agricultural workers. By 1943 Japanese Americans were leaving the camps in large numbers going to cities in the Midwest and East Coast either to work or study. Basically people were free to leave if they swore that they weren’t going to blow-up Willow Run or shoot soldiers on leave. The government arranged transportation, housing, jobs and/or school enrollment (e.g. colleges or universities). They just couldn’t return to the West Coast. By the end of 1944 about half of the people had left the camps. The largest number of people who left were young adult Nisei who took advantage of the situation to travel and find jobs in everything from war production plants or to attend universities on the East Coast.

          A relative on mine ended up going to Northwestern Dentistry School and settled in Chicago and became a successful dentist after the war. Another family friend went to Yale University to finish his architecture degree and then attended Harvard for his Master’s Degree in architecture. Thousands of Japanese Americans ended up in New York, Chicago and Washington D.C. and many never returned to their home states on the West Coast after the war.

          For the most part Nisei who left the camps during the war faced little discrimination or hardships because of their race. I had relatives that settled in small towns in Illinois to living and working in New York City. You couldn’t say that American a fundamentally “racist” country in regards to Japanese Americans because of their treatment under EO 9066. That decision was made by FDR–it did not represent the views and beliefs of the rest of America.

          So to say today that America has a problem with structural “racism” today is just a load of bull. That wasn’t true in 1942 and it isn’t true in 2020. Critical Race Theory is just a fancy word for insane liberal fascism bent on turning the world into a living hell where the masses will be brainwashed by the enlightened terrorists.

          1. Wow, thanks for that, zzy, and welcome aboard! And I agree these are indeed very interesting times where criminals like “doting dad” George Floyd are elevated above us by the curators of woke in the MSM whose desire is that we should take a subservient knee to the BLM terrorists.

          2. Even though FDR signed EO 9066, the decision to intern Japanese Americans on the West Coast was complex. Never forget that the US Supreme Court ratified the whole process as it was happening, and never went back on that decision. That was a disgrace, and still is.

          3. Even though FDR signed EO 9066, the decision to intern Japanese Americans on the West Coast was complex.

            I grew up within sight of the Heart Mountain camp in Wyoming and most farms in the area still have outbuildings made from the old barracks. There is a very nice visitor’s center/museum there now and I would encourage anyone interested to visit it. I enjoyed growing up in Northwest WY, but if I had lived there involuntarily I wouldn’t have liked it at all. It’s a harsh environment in the winter for anyone who grows up near the ocean.

          4. Executive Order 9066 was not challenged immediately in the Supreme Court. Three test cases finally made it to the Supreme Court, Hirabayashi, Yasui and Korematsu where they all lost. Later after the discovery of government documents that showed that Japanese Americans were not an immediate threat and that didn’t support the evacuation, these cases were appealed in the 1980’s and were overturned by lower Federal Courts. Also, the sentences of all three were vacated. However, the Supreme Court has never taken up any of these cases so the legal saga of these cases is one very complicated mess that has filled volumes of books.

            The point is moot as far as I’m concerned since if there ever was a situation where habeas corpus should’ve been suspended and a wholesale roundup of potential terrorists or spies should have taken place, the 9/11 attack was the instance when the POTUS should’ve issue a similar Executive Order. But that didn’t occur because it wasn’t needed.

            All of the hand wringing and wailing about EO 9066 and the Japanese American internment, that this “Should Never Again Happen In This Country!” is just a civil liberty talking point. No one has ever suggested that such an action should be taken, and as I said, nobody called for that after 9/11. Our regular law enforcement and intelligence agencies were more than up to the task of rounding up the bad guys post 9/11.

            Politically active Japanese Americans are virtually all dyed in the wool liberal Democrats and they use the internment as a weapon to attack any effort by anybody in this country who attempts to protect America from foreign terrorists and others who might do us harm. It’s a dead horse, EO 9066. It was a once in a country’s lifetime event that will never re-occur.

            If there was to be another wholesale violation of the civil rights of Americans, we’re living in it right now! As Attorney General Barr said, the current restrictions and lockdowns are the biggest violation of civil rights in this country’s history except for slavery. The government has ordered the closure of businesses and commerce and in some cases virtually locked up people in their homes. And it’s still occurring.

            The current situation is MUCH worse than what happened to Japanese Americans in 1942, since that involved only 110,000 people. The current government atrocities affect everybody in the United States, all 328,000,000 people! So who cares about 9066 when we can’t even go to church, Disneyland or a sit down restaurant.
