Survey Finds Democrats’ Greatest Concern Is Scary Trump Supporters

A new poll has found something that is at the same time disturbing and hilarious.

It asked people about their greatest concerns.

Republicans listed traditional issues like the economy and illegal immigration. The number one issue for Democrats was how scared they are of Trump supporters. Seriously.

The Blaze reports:

Survey: GOP is concerned about policy issues, while Democrats are most concerned about ‘Trump supporters’

A new survey found that while Republican voters are mostly concerned with policy issues, Democratic voters are primarily concerned with Trump supporters and the growth of various “-isms” in the country such as “systemic racism” and “white nationalism.”

The survey, conducted by Echelon Insights last week, found that the top concern among Republican voters was illegal immigration, with 81% of respondents reporting that they are very concerned about the issue. Following behind is the lack of support for police in the country, with 79% being very concerned, and high taxes, an issue that 77% said they were very concerned about.

Republicans also did express concern over issues not necessarily related to specific policy — such as liberal bias in the media, the general moral decline of the country, and socialism — but those concerns did not top the list.

Among Democratic voters, however, non-policy-related issues were of greatest concern. In fact, the No. 1 “problem” causing concern for Democratic respondents was not an issue at all, but a group of people — Donald Trump supporters — at 82%.

A lot of this can be blamed on the media.

It’s just absurd.

Maricopa County Releases Junk Audit Reports – 12% Ballot Adjudication and Dominion Employee’s Use of Prohibited Orange External Drive Omitted from Report

Guest post by Mark

Maricopa County in Arizona recently released reports by two vendors who conducted election audits in early February. Witnesses working at the (MCTEC) Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center testified that 12% of all ballots were being sent to adjudication. Numerous supervisors offered this data when struggling to assign this large amount of ballot files to adjudicators.

So one in eight ballots were being sent as a digital image to humans at computers. These adjudicators would review and could change the circles voters selected on these ballots. Changing a ballot is as easy as checking a box on a PDF form. But neither audit discloses this unusually high rate of adjudication or why it happened.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors provided both audit organizations a “test deck” of ballots. The audit by Pro V&V states they processed at least 1,549,703 ballot positions. If their test was truly replicating the election, then 186,000 of these ballots should have been sent to adjudication. But there’s no mention of this or any recurring scanner issues. Other than 2 ballot jams, their report simply says “Ballots were imported into RTR and adjudicated resulting in accurate numbers.” The reports are purposely void of any details. It should be noted the MCTEC center was staffed with anti-Trump zealots, just not as bad as the TCF center. These were the people adjudicating ballots.

There is a major difference between an investigation and an EAC accredited audit. With an EAC “audit” the vendors are given a strict scope of work by the customer. Anything outside these parameters is not investigated or disclosed. This 12% of adjudication would have created a tremendous amount of errors in the logs. Did these auditors choose not to disclose this? Or did their “test deck” not produce many adjudicated ballots? If so, why? No one knows because it was not in the scope of the audit. An investigation would get to the bottom of this. Investigators would compare “ballot images” against the actual paper ballots.

As another example, Maricopa instructed auditors to check devices for internet connectivity between July 6th and November 10th. So SLI looked at the logs of a couple of servers, some adjudicator workstations, and 35 of the 315 precinct scanners. They only checked the logs for signs of internet connectivity. No other analysis was documented because it wasn’t ordered by the Maricopa Board of Supervisors. It says no evidence of internet connectivity was found, but farther down discusses reviewing browser history and search terms. Analysts have noted that Dominion software allows logs to be edited, replaced, and completely deleted while leaving no audit trail of that users credentials.

These publicly released audit reports are noticeably void of dates, especially when software was installed. During the “investigation” conducted by Allied Security for Antrim County, they found the Dominion ImageCast Precinct Cards were reprogrammed. This software affects how ballots are read and tabulated. The programming was changed just before the election on 10/23/2020. Then two days after the election on 11/05/2020  it was changed to a compliant software version most likely to hide fraud. When an audit just checks the software version or hash numbers it could conclude this recently installed software was compliant and everything was OK.

SLI Compliance states they inspected many aspects of EMS (Election Management System) from the registry to the USB history. Several witnesses stated a Dominion employee used an orange external drive to back up the entire system. The device was removed at night, taken off-premise, delivered to someone, and reconnected to the servers via USB in the morning. The Dominion employee admitted there was no chain of custody and would not disclose his offsite handoffs. There is no mention of this USB activity or any EMS activity like this in either audit report. Again, this is the difference between and EAC accredited “audit” and a real investigation.

SLI Compliance states they audited all 9 of the ImageCast Central Count (ICC) high-speed scanners used at MCTEC. Witnesses testified that ballots were dropped off by Runbeck Election Services trucks on November 4th, 5th, 6th and daily until the 12th. Supervisor explanations on these deliveries was always the same: “Runbeck has high speed scanners.” Their facility is 6 miles away from MCTEC. But there is no mention of Runbeck or these offsite scanners in either audit report. Bryan Dandurand, VP of Operations for Runbeck, was contacted for further clarification and has not yet responded.

It’s likely there is more documentation from these audits than what is provided to the public. Only 14 of the 60 pages from SLI Compliance report contains useful information for the public. About 7 of the 10 pages in the Pro V&V report is useful. What’s noticeable is that EAC accredited audits never seem to look at known issues and whitewash the obvious. A real election investigation focuses on the known issues, looks at all aspects of information, and follows the evidence.

Maryland Teacher Seen Masturbating During Zoom Lesson with 8th Graders – Says It Was “Dumb Luck” After He Is Caught (VIDEO)

Maryland teacher’s aide Mark Schack was caught on camera masturbating during an 8th grade virtual lesson earlier this week.

When Schack spoke with FOX 5 reporters he said it was not on purpose and that it was just dumb luck that students were able to see him.

Schack is currently suspended – but is not out of a job.

The New York Post reported:

A teacher’s aide in Maryland masturbated during a Zoom call with eighth-graders — but insists he thought the online lesson had ended.

Marc Schack, an assistant for special education students at Shady Grove Middle School in Gaithersburg, told the Bethesda Magazine Wednesday he was unaware his self-love session had been captured on the virtual call until being interviewed.

“I thought I was logged out when class was over,” Schack told the bimonthly mag. “I had no clue that Zoom was still on. Why would I do that? That’s my job. I had no clue that Zoom was on. I mean, that’s just crazy behavior.”

A 13-second clip — later posted on social media – shows Schack gaze at his screen before standing up, taking a few steps away and beginning to pleasure himself, according to the report.

BREAKING: Senate Parliamentarian Says Including $15 Minimum Wage in Democrats’ COVID Package Violates Budget Rules

NEW YORK, NY – NOVEMBER 10: Low wage workers and supporters protest for a $15 an hour minimum wage on November 10, 2015 in New York, United States. In what organizers are calling a National Day of Action for $15 and hour minimum wage, thousands of people took to the streets across the country to stage protests in front of businesses that are paying some of their workers the minimum wage. Home care workers, employees in retail and fast food restaurants say that the current minimum is not a living wage. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

The Senate Parliamentarian on Thursday ruled that including $15 minimum wage in Democrats’ COVID package violates Senate budget rules.

The Huffington Post reported:

Democrats’ push to pass a $15 minimum wage in their $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package violates Senate rules, according to the Senate’s parliamentarian, who delivered a likely fatal blow Friday to the effort to give tens of millions of workers a raise.

For weeks, Democrats have been waiting for a ruling from the Senate parliamentarian, who oversees Senate procedure, on whether they can raise the minimum wage through the budget reconciliation process, the legislative maneuver that will allow Democrats to pass legislation with a simple majority.

House Democrats are expected to soon vote on a COVID-19 package that includes raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour in stages over the next four years. The provision also eliminates the tipped minimum wage, which currently allows employers to pay workers a lower base wage as long as the workers receive gratuities.

The proposal would give an estimated 27 million workers raises over the next four years. The current federal minimum wage is $7.25 and has not been increased in more than a decade.

China Gave Biden Officials Anal COVID Swab Tests “In Error”

China sticks it to the man.

The Chinese government gave Biden Administration officials anal COVID swab tests upon arriving in China.
The Chinese government say the anal swab tests were given to US diplomats “in error.”

Welcome to China!

VICE.com reported:

The Chinese government has promised to stop using anal swabs on American diplomats to test for COVID-19 after Washington complained that the practice was undignified, the U.S. State Department said.

“The State Department never agreed to this kind of testing and protested directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when we learned that some staff were subject to it,” a State Department spokesperson told VICE World News on Wednesday.

The spokesperson said Beijing had assured Washington that the test was given “in error” and that diplomatic personnel were exempt from the test, which was mandatory for incoming travelers in some parts of China.

“We have instructed staff to decline this test if it is asked of them, as was done in the past.”

Female Athlete Shreds Biden Administration To Withdraw Lawsuit: We Deserve To Be The Best, Biological Males Are Taking It Away

The Biden Administration’s Department of Justice decided to withdraw its support of a lawsuit this week, pushed by three high school female athletes that would block biological males (transgender females) from competing in girls’ sports in Connecticut. Former Attorney General Bill Barr supported the lawsuit because he said Connecticut’s law allowing this to happen does violate the Title IX protections in place.

The lawsuit was filed in a federal court in 2020, “by three high school girls and their mothers against the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC), which has permitted boys to compete in events and win awards that would otherwise have gone to girls,” Daily Wire reported.

“Selina Soule, Alanna Smith, and Chelsea Mitchell, represented by Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), were denied opportunities to compete at higher levels as boys took home the prizes. CIAC’s policy allowed two males to compete in girls’ athletic competitions beginning in the 2017 track season. Those boys have taken 15 women’s state championship titles (titles held in 2016 by nine different Connecticut girls) and have taken more than 85 opportunities to participate in higher level competitions from female track athletes in the 2017, 2018, and 2019 seasons alone.”

Two Races from 2018 made headlines when ‘Two Transgenders Blow Out Girls In State Meet” Connecticut had its State Open track and field where one person broke the State Open records for girls in both the 100 and 200-meter runs.

Attorney Christiana Holcomb appeared Wednesday night with Alanna Smith, who is one of the three girls pushing the lawsuit on Fox News to discuss the Biden Administration’s reversal. Smith said people need to realize that many biological females are taking things away from them and how fairness needs to be restored in her sport as well as all other women’s sports.

Smith said she filed this lawsuit because, ““I got involved after I ran against the biological males at the New England meet because in the 200 meter I took third place when I  should have gotten runner-up, and it’s not really about placement but it’s all about knowing that I work so many hours a week to be able to get runner-up in New England’s [championships] as a freshman. And I am really disappointed in the news, because me and the other girls, Selina and Chelsea, have worked really hard to get our stories out there, to get people to realize that fairness needs to be restored in our sport and all other women’s sports.”

Fox News host Katie Pavlich called out the administration, “The left claims to always stand up for women, they’re the party of women, and yet here we are with policies that disenfranchise female athletes.”

Pavlich asked Smith’s attorney, “And I have serious questions abut what this means in terms of harassment of female athletes. Does this mean that biological males are not allowed to go into the locker room as well as compete against them and take away scholarships and placement in state championships? I know that the lawsuit is going to move forward despite DOJ pulling their support for it? So where are you going from here?”

Holcomb answered, ““Well, the lawsuit absolutely moves forward, but as you mentioned, this was clearly a politically motivated decision to side with radical activists over female athletes like Alanna, but what’ s even more concerning is this effort to gut legal protection for women is not just isolated to what we see in Connecticut. Even now, the Biden administration is pushing the so-called Equality Act, which ignores the real physical differences between men and women and threatens women’s privacy, women’s homeless shelters, and yes, even women’s sports on a national level for female athletes like Alanna.”

Pavlich asked Smith to elaborate more, “But in terms of athletics, Alanna, when it comes to the things that you’ve missed out on, people say ‘it’s only fair’ to allow biological males to compete against you, What is your response to that?”

Smith stated, “That people should realize that a lot of biological females have missed out on making it to meets that really matter, like states and regionals, and the transgender athletes have taken spots on the podium that belong to biological females,” Smith stated. “We train for so many days a week, so many hours to be able to be the best in our state and the best in our region, and these biological males are just taking it away from us and we really deserve it.”

Smith’s attorney shared, “Title IX was designed to ensure that girls like Alanna have a fair and level playing field, have a chance to showcase their talents, to be champions, and frankly, to earn those college scholarships. So we want to move forward and we want to see women’s sports protected across the country.”

Breaking: Biden Bombs Syria to Punish Iran for Attacks on US in Iraq

Joe Biden personally approved US airstrikes on Syria Thursday in response to recent Iranian-backed militia attacks on US forces in Iraq, Reuters was first to report. The Biden airstrikes reportedly targeted a facility in Syria belonging to Iranian-backed militias.


Two days after Biden took over the White House last month, U.S. troops were seen entering Syria from Iraq, signaling a reversal of President Trump’s efforts to end U.S. involvement in ‘forever wars’ in the Middle East.

Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin posted more on Twitter, “Senior US official confirms the US military carried out a single airstrike in Syria against a single location used by Iranian backed militias- multiple facilities struck tonight. Pres Biden approved the attack. Strike designed to deter rocket attacks against US forces in Iraq.”

On Tuesday Reuters reported an Iranian-backed militia in Iraq denied responsibility for a streak of three attacks on U.S. forces in recent weeks:

An Iran-aligned Iraqi militia group on Tuesday denied any role in recent rocket attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq, but said an attack against Saudi Arabia last month was justified.

It is a rare direct denial and the first time the Kataib Hezbollah group, one of the Iraqi factions closest to Iran, has commented on the most serious incident this year, a rocket attack in Erbil on Feb. 15 that killed a contractor working with U.S.-led forces.

…In the Feb. 15 attack, rockets hit the U.S. military base housed at Erbil International Airport in the Kurdish-run region killing one non-American contractor. Another salvo struck a base hosting U.S. forces north of Baghdad days later hurting at least one contractor.

Rockets hit Baghdad’s Green Zone on Monday which houses the U.S. embassy and other diplomatic missions.

On Tuesday, Jack Posobiec posted this observation on Biden and Syria, “One thing people aren’t picking up on is how focused the Biden White House is on Syria. They want Assad and his generals gone. This is taking up way more of their time than they are letting on publicly.”

UPDATE: Hasbro Keeps ‘Mr.’ Potato Head, The ‘Modern Makeover’ Of ‘Gender-Neutral’ Name Will Not Happen

Hasbro revealed Thursday that it was renaming Mr. Potato head toy a ‘gender-neutral’ name and the Mr./Mrs. ‘pronouns’ will be dropped from the toy’s characters. This change was set to appear in the fall and Hasbro thought after 70 years it needed a ‘modern makeover’

Now Hasbro has decided to announce again that the ‘Mr. Potato Head’ will not be going anywhere as well as Mr. and Mrs. will remain as their own characters. It is more obvious now when the first announcement happened, the company wanted to test the waters as to how the internet would react.

Toy story GIF on GIFER - by Taushicage

Daily Mail reported, “The new range will also include box sets that don’t present the traditional family structure so children can make same-sex or single-parent potato families in line with changing societal roles.”

Some saw the decision as “Just a marketing gimmick designed to increase demand for both the old ‘Mr. Potato Head’ product and the new ‘Potato Head’ product.”

Matt Walsh of Daily Wire mocked Hasbro’s decision with what woke leftist would say, “I told my 7-year-old daughter that Mr. Potato Head is gender neutral now and she smiled and said, ‘This is the greatest day of my life. Finally I can be at peace.’ We hugged and I started sobbing. It was so beautiful.”

“We Don’t Find It Safe Enough” – EU Lawmaker Jérôme Rivière: Mail-in Ballots and Voting Machines Banned in France (VIDEO)

In the aftermath of the 2020 elections, honest Americans are looking to make widespread reforms to the voting systems and procedures used in America.

One America’s Jack Posobiec spoke with a French member of the European Parliament Jérôme Rivière to see whether foreign countries use the same kinds of election practices as the U.S.

Riviere told One America News France banned mail-in ballots in 1975 because it was too easy to cheat. Now the Macron government is pushing early voting through machine voting but the senate refused to pass the amendment. Jerome says, “We don’t find it safe enough.”

Ireland and The Netherlands also banned electronic voting in recent years.

Facebook Removes Video of Dem Rep. Putting Up Trans Flag for ‘Hate Speech’ — Quickly Restores and Begs for Democrat Forgiveness

Facebook removed a video of Democrat Rep. Marie Newman putting up a trans flag outside her office to spite Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for “hate speech” on Thursday.

The Democrat rep. was furious that the censorship they push was being used against her.

Meanwhile, Greene’s response video was still up and active on the platform — which had Rep. Newman extra salty.

Facebook quickly bent the knee and groveled for Democrat forgiveness, claiming it was done in error.

Rep. Newman had a tantrum on Wednesday after Rep. Greene voted against the so-called “Equality Act,” which would force girls to compete with biological boys in school sports and stomp on religious liberty laws.

The petulant Democrat decided to post a video of herself hanging a transgender flag outside of her office, which is directly across from Rep. Greene’s.

“Our neighbor, @RepMTG , tried to block the Equality Act because she believes prohibiting discrimination against trans Americans is ‘disgusting, immoral, and evil.’ Thought we’d put up our Transgender flag so she can look at it every time she opens her door,” Rep. Newman wrote, adding the winking and trans flag emojis.

In response, the firebrand Republican had a sign made that says “there are two genders: male & female” and “trust the science” and posted a video of herself hanging it, mocking Newman’s video.

“Our neighbor, @RepMarieNewman , wants to pass the so-called “Equality” Act to destroy women’s rights and religious freedoms. Thought we’d put up ours so she can look at it every time she opens her door,” Rep. Greene fired back with a winking emoji and an American flag.

In a subsequent tweet, to be clear, Rep. Greene asserted, “God created ONLY TWO genders.”
