Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Now that it seems that The Dread Deadbeat Pro-Se Kimberlin has had his butt kicked in enough LOLsuits, it looks as if he’s tried to make a career change to protecting our elections. He’s renamed VelvetRevoultion.US as Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc. and is trying to make a go of the role of The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin. However, he doesn’t seem to be making much impact providing “oversight of elections,” something Protect Our Elections claimed it does in a suit against the Federal Election Commission.

The Protect Our Elections website has so little traffic it can’t be reliably ranked. None of the content posted in 2019 was original. The half dozen posts were lifted from Politico (twice), The Daily Beast, The Rolling Stone, Salon, and the Puffington Host. The last post that appears to contain any original content was about the disputed North Carolina House District 9 contest. I went up last December. Nothing posted in the past year has generated a single comment. Not. A. Single. Comment.

Moreover, The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin did not properly oversee this week’s special election to settle the NC-09 House election. Brett Kimberlin isn’t doing any better protecting our elections than he did smuggling dope into South Texas. Kimberlin, as Judge Hazel said, “has failed …”

I’m Not Making This Up, You Know


A pro-abortion candidate for the Democrat’s presidential nomination tweeted this—Of course, dead babies can no longer be mistreated, but still …

BTW, when Harris was a prosecutor in California, she did nothing to change that state’s legal procedures which separate the children of detained parents from those parents.

An Unintended Consequence


Hillary Clinton carried Colorado during the 2016 election, but when the state’s electors met to vote, one of them refused to vote for her. The Colorado Secretary of State replaced that elector with one who would vote for Clinton. The original elector sued the Secretary of State, claiming that his removal was illegal and that the State could not bind him to vote in a particular way. Yesterday, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in the elector’s favor.

One consequence of a state’s inability to bind electors to vote a particular way is that the states who are members of the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact cannot legally require their electors to cast their votes in any particular way.

The Democrats’ plan to sabotage the Electoral College may have been stopped by the action of a Democrat elector.

Success Is Not An Option


Paul Mirengoff has a post over at PowerLine about why Kamala Harris is dropping in the polls. Among the reasons he suggest is her record as a prosecutor in California.

Her main problems, though, stem from her time as a prosecutor. I think they are symptomatic of problems that Democrats will have running for president if they were actually in charge of something governmental.

There was a time when running something governmental, as opposed to being a legislator, appeared to be an advantage in a presidential run. State Houses were a fertile ground for successful presidential candidates.

But that was before the Democratic Party turned sharply to the left. Now, the things one must do as an elected state official, such as prosecuting criminals, are likely to upset the left.

Congresscritters can promise pie in the sky with ice cream by and by, vote for the Right Causes, never actually deliver (Bernie as a total of three bills passed into law) all that free stuff (Bernie as a total of three bills passed into law)—and still stay in the good graces of the Democrat base.

With Harris stuck at 5 percent, along with Pete Buttigieg who governs a city, the three poll leaders are Senators or former Senators. I don’t count Biden’s vice presidential days as running anything. Nor should Sanders’s time as mayor of Burlington, Vermont 30 years ago count for much. (As for Hillary Clinton, the most recent Democratic nominee, her Senate time caused fewer woes than her time running the State Department).

Read the whole thing.

I believe Mirengoff is correct. We should expect the Democrats to nominate a candidate without a record of successfully making things happen in the Real World but with plenty of politically correct legislative votes.
