Joe Biden is the presumptive President-Elect of the United States, but the government he will preside over will be divided on partisan lines.
The hype concerning a “Blue wave” came to a crashing halt after Republicans defended the Senate and not only kept the Democrats from making gains in the House, but also narrowed their majority.
Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns of the New York Times observed that “leaders in both camps are acknowledging that voters seem to have issued not a mandate for the left or the right but a muddled plea to move on from Trump-style chaos.”
Due to the growing urban vs. rural divide in America, the country is going through a significant political realginment were traditional political strongholds are now up for grabs. Martin and Burns noted that the “election also represented a continuation of this trench warfare between two parties that are increasingly defined by their activist flanks and limited to only incremental advances.”
“We are more divided than any other time in my lifetime,” declared Haley Barbour, a former governor of Mississippi. “But usually when we’re at parity we’re bunched up in the middle — now we’ve got parity but with extreme polarity.”
The biggest highlights for Democrats was how they flipped Arizona and Georgia, states that used to comfortably go Republican. However, Republicans maintained Florida and Ohio — two states that Democrats could occasionally turn blue — and consolidated their gains. Most importantly, Republicans denied Democrats a federal trifecta by keeping the Senate.
Democrats’ radical embrace of defund the police movements along with the progressive faction’s obsession with socialism and the anti-working class push to destroy the natural gas industry alienated many potential voters who would have pulled the lever for Democrats under normal circumstances.
Florida Congresswoman Donna Shalala, who was ousted by Maria Elvira Salazar on November 3, observed that the Democrat party did not distance itself from the socialist label.
“Defund police, open borders, socialism — it’s killing us,” declared Congresswoman Vicente Gonzalez. The Texas Democrat who represents the 15th district in South Texas only won 50.7 percent of the vote, after dominiating his race by a vote of 59.7 percent to 38.8 percent in 2018. “I had to fight to explain all that,” Gonzalez stated.
Gonzalez argued that the “average white person,” connects socialism with Nordic countries. However, for Asian and Hispanic migrants, socialism reminds them of authoritarian “left-wing regimes.”
Chuck Rocha, a veteran Democrat consultant and campaign adviser to Vermont Senator Bernie Sander,s is of the opinion that too many white Democrats “see Black and brown people as the same” instead of talking to Hispanics like they are swing voters who need to be convinced.
“Our community is not a get-out-the-vote universe,” declared Rocha. “We’re a persuasion universe and should be treated like whites.”
The Democrats’ constant appeals to political correctness perhaps have limits. In addition, radical anti-business and ant-law enforcement likely puts off many independents, centrists, and minorities. If Democrats actually want to see blue waves, they should probably tone down their message.
In the meantime, Republicans should continue painting their opponents as radicals and offer policies that actually benefit middle Americans.
DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County
Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.
Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:
“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”
The rest of Judge’s Thomason’s ruling can be found here.
“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”
Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
BREAKING: A judge ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million ballots from Arizona’s most populous county so it can audit results of the 2020 election.
