"The “what happened to the red wave” finger pointing is getting kind of tiresome. Blue state voters voted blue and purple state voters voted purple. Shocker. Well, those of us living a life of freedom in red states cannot vote any harder to liberate Americans living in blue states from the tyranny they keep voting upon themselves."
The other "big" story is the sudden, post-election fall of Democrat mega-donor, second behind only George Soros in the last election. Shades of Hunter's laptops. Stacy McCain, Sam Bankman-Fried: MIT-Educated Crypto Swindler Scammed Billions, Donated Millions to Democrats
Is anyone really surprised by this? Of course, there are shady people in the financial world who are Republicans, but the 30-year-old MIT-educated billionaire slob? The “effective altruist” who cares about climate change and has a girlfriend who’s a Harry Potter fan?
No, he’s a Democrat. It only makes sense. As the tangled web of SBF’s multi-billion-dollar swindle is unraveled, we should keep this in mind: Democrats collected tens of millions of dollars in campaign contributions from a scammer who defrauded investors around the world. The damage inflicted by Sam Bankman-Fried is only beginning to become apparent. It’s possible that SBF’s swindle may collapse the entire crypto-currency market and, I repeat, people were warned it was a Ponzi scheme.
Miranda Divine: Amid all the jubilation and gloating by Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer and pals over the Democrats' better-than-expected showing in the midterms comes a disturbing story that may explain something about how they won such a curious election.
Biden's second-biggest donor, cryptocurrency billionaire wunderkind Sam Bankman-Fried, a k a SBF, saw his business file for bankruptcy days after the election, but not before pumping $40 million into the Democratic Party to spend on "get-out-the-vote" and other shadowy ballot-harvesting mechanics for the midterms.

At Am Great, the great Victor Davis Hanson is done with Trump, Tragically Trump. "Will Trump rest on his considerable laurels and ride out gracefully to Mar-a-Lago? Or will he choose the tragic hero path?" On the other hand, at Town Hall Kurt Schlichter says Let’s Talk About Trump
But while Trump, like many others – RINOs, pundits, us voters – own a hefty share of this Jeffrey Toobin Zoom call of an election night, it’s all a little too simple, a little too easy to think that we’re good to go if only Trump gets up and goes. Trump is not the GOP's only problem. It was out of touch with most voters before he took over – hell, that’s why he was able to take over. And the problems with the GOP that led to Trump will not be fixed even if Trump vanishes tomorrow.

If they refuse, they can be subpoenaed." Jazz Shaw at Haut Hair, AP: Whew! We avoided the mega-MAGA massacre somehow "Notice how the author talks about the shocking “sense of normalcy” around the country on election day and how it may be here only “for a moment.” You know how those crafty mega-MAGA Republicans are, right? All of the “election deniers” are probably just biding their time until they can strike when liberals and mainstream media figures are least expecting it."
At Am Think Ted Noel is thinking about Viewing DeSantis Versus Trump Through The 2022 Election Filter "If it sounds like I’m conflicted, you’re an astute student of the obvious." Paul Gottfried at Am Great questions Does DeSantis Have National Appeal? The notion that Republicans could win statewide elections in any other state by fielding a candidate like Florida’s governor is questionable."

Bill Sullivan at Am Think wants to Abolish ‘Voting Season’ and Bring Back Election Day. I tend to agree, but, alas, the Democrats get to vote too. Eddie Scarry at Da Fed is more my liking, Republican Leaders Have A Choice: Roll Back Early Voting And Mail-In Ballots Or Learn To Take Advantage Of Them. You can do both. Jay Valentine at Am Think, How Wisconsin Streetfighters Disrupted a Democrat Ballot-Gathering System
The Wisconsin team proved, in this election, that adding even a small amount of friction – removing thousands of phantom names and identifying several hundred thousand incorrect addresses — has a massive impact on the ballot-gathering system.
Our Wisconsin election heroes applied Fractal Programming technology, funded by Mike Lindell, at scale to find and challenge phantoms. The process is explained at www.Omega4America.com.
They went to scores of county registrars and challenged thousands of phantoms — proof in hand. Quietly, below the radar, they showed registrars, whose job it is to deal with this sort of thing, that Bill Jones was not a real person. They helped clean up addresses that were wrong — either typos or fake.
Any one of those addresses was a landing pad for a loose ballot.
On Election Day, the Wisconsin Democrats did not have enough phantoms or mail-in ballots to go around. A Republican senator might have been saved by these actions.
