Barr upgrades Durham to Special Counsel status…

December 1, 2020

Yesterday morning, we asked: Are Comey, Brennan and friends now off-the-hook?

And, we offered President Trump some specific advice: Coax Barr to name a Special Prosecutor.

Well, I don’t want to claim all of the motivating credit, but here’s what just got announced:



According to the WSJ:

Attorney General William Barr has named Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham a special counsel, giving him extra protection to continue during the Biden administration his investigation of the origins of the FBI’s 2016 Russia probe.

Mr. Barr appointed Mr. Durham special counsel under the same regulation used to name Robert Mueller to take over the Russia investigation.

I guess Comey & Brennan aren’t off the hook after all.

Ball’s in your court, Joe.

Survey: Was the election free of widespread fraud?

December 1, 2020

Rasmussen surveyed a variant of that question:

How likely is it that Democrats stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots in several states to ensure that Biden would win?

The answer may surprise some folks…


About half of all respondents (47%) thought it was somewhat or very likely that Dems stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots.

Predictably, 3 of 4 Republicans thought it was true.

The surprise: nearly 1 in 3 Democrats thought it was somewhat or very likely that Dems stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots.

Gee, even a statistically significant number of Dems think that there was widespread fraud.

Rasmussen didn’t ask the question, but I bet practically all of them think the ends justify the means.

So much for election integrity.
