Thought for the day

"Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes… known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.… No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare." -- James Madison

The Nevada Supreme Court has rejected a request to halt the hand counting of ballots in a rural county.

The hand count began after all ballots cast in the midterms were tabulated with machines and is essentially an audit, which is not allowed under state law, the Brennan Center for Justice and the American Civil Liberties Union argued in an emergency motion on Monday.

Election machines reported more votes than physical ballots cast in two precincts in an influential Virginia county, raising concerns about election administration in the midterms after the county's former registrar was charged earlier this year with multiple election-related offenses.

Supporters for Kari Lake call for military intervention to stop the steal in her governor’s race

Supporters of Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake are desperately seeking help to stop operatives from snatching away her victory over Democratic opponent and Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.

Political commentators are crying fraud after vote tallies show more people voted for the Republican candidate in Arizona’s Treasurer race than voted for the GOP candidate in the state governor’s race.

The bizarre discrepancy can be observed in official vote tallies from the New York Times, which receives its election results from the Associated Press.

Multiple news outlets including the Fox News Decision Desk are calling the Arizona governor’s race: Democratic gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs has defeated GOP opponent Kari Lake: 50.4% to 49.6%. If the final tally ends up being within half of a percentage point, a recount may be triggered under Arizona state law.

The outcome of some elections this year will be affected by cheating, most voters said, according to a Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey released Monday.

More than half — 57% — of likely American voters held this view, including 30% who said it is very likely; 40% do not think election outcomes this year are likely to be affected by cheating, including 18% who say it is not at all likely.

The US midterms revealed that politicians have failed to fix a deeply flawed election process which lags behind many other countries, Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity Director Daniel McAdams told Sputnik.

The US held its midterm elections on Tuesday, November 8, but the results of the Arizona and Nevada senate races were not known until after several days of ballot counting, largely due to complex mail-in voting rules and technical malfunctions.
