Let us strive to comprehend the mystery. The reason God is in the flesh is to kill the death that lurks there. As diseases are cured by medicines and assimilated by the body; and as darkness in a house is dispelled by the coming of light, so death, which held sway over human nature, is done away with by the coming of God.
And as ice formed on water covers its surface as long as night and darkness last but melts under the warmth of the sun, so death reigned until the coming of Christ, but when the grace of God our Savior appeared and the Sun of Justice rose, death was swallowed up in victory, unable to beat the presence of true life. How great is God’s goodness, how deep his love for us!
Let us join the shepherds in giving glory to God, let us dance with the angels and sing. Today a Savior has been born to us. He is Christ the Lord. The Lord is God and He has appeared to us, not as God which would have been terrifying for our weakness, but as a slave so as to free those who live in slavery.
Who could be so lacking in sensibility and so ungrateful as not to join all here present in our gladness, exultation and radiant joy?
The feast belongs to the whole of creation. Let everyone join in and be grateful. Let our voices too ring out in songs of jubilation!
Vivek Says USA In Cold Civil War — Vivek Ramaswamy gave an excellent answer at a Iowa campaign event regarding the Civil War. He said it occurred because there was a “value system that was fundamentally different in two countries that shared the same geographic space.”
He said the same thing is happening today and that there is “cold war” between those who love the United States of America and those who hate this country and what we stand for.” He said the two sides have an incompatible view. “Either you believe in merit or you believe in group quotas . . . either you believe in free speech or you believe in censorship . . . either you believe in American exceptionalism or you believe in American apologism . . . you cannot have both.”

Raffensperger Fears Testifying About Georgia Voting System — Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is appealing an order from a judge that he defend under oath Georgia’s computerized voting system.
A lawsuit is seeking to find before the presidential primary if it’s vulnerable to hacking.
Raffensperger was ordered to defend it by U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg and Raffensperger is asking the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to please don’t make him.
Raffensperger is the Republican who infamously rejected President Trump’s request to act on obvious election discrepancies in the 2020 election that would have flipped the state from Biden.
A tape of Trump’s phone call to him was leaked to the public, distorted by the mockingbirds and is now being used in the indictment against The Donald alleging that he committed racketeering by questioning the election.
Judge Totenberg is a Democrat appointed by Barack Obama.
Which gets us to one huge, glaring, unpleasant question which has only one huge, glaring unpleasant answer.
Why is Raffensperger afraid to testify under oath about Georgia’s election system?
And why are the powers that-be desperately fighting the simplest and most reasonable attempts to investigate our elections?
Dominion officials refused to tesify before the Pennsylvania House just after the 2020 election, an action that was either defended or ignored by the establishment media.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled in March 2022 that neither Fulton County nor the Pennsylvania Senate can audit Dominion voting machines, a ruling that was just peachy with those who still give many Americans their news.
That’s kind of unexpected, don’t you think?
The traditional media defending business instead of election transparency? A corporation instead of voters?
So we ask why and are left with one huge, glaring unpleasant answer.
People get ready. People get mad, ask questions and demand answers. You are allowed.
Raffensperger Fears Testifying About Georgia Voting System
What Happened at the Northhampton County Election Board — Someone described as is very active in Northampton County (Pa) politics sent this to our friend Kim Kennedy who sent to us.What we find puzzling is the claim by the board’s solicitor that it is mandated to certify electionsby a deadline. Certify, after all, has a meaning:
To confirm formally as true, accurate, or genuine.
intransitive verb To guarantee as meeting a standard.
A boardcan’t declare something to be true if it believes it isn’t, unless the board knows its lying. The mandate makes our entire election system a lie.
Overview of Nov. 21 Northampton County (Pa.) Election Board Meeting
The Board meeting had to be moved to the cafeteria due to well over 100 citizens participating in the meeting, spilling into the hallway. I arrived about 2 pm to meet with people I had emailed to come early in order to strategize and pass out an agenda, issues to raise and PIN materials by Bill Rodebaugh. A press table was set on the side for 4 staff, including LV Live News and Armchair writers, MCall, Bernie O’Hare and a young man who was quite busy on the phone. I made connections for the future with all plus a photojournalist, passing my card out to them and all in the room who was interested. (There was some conflict initially with a few in the audience decrying the reporters putting their pictures in the news. The answer was that “it is a public place and photos are allowed. Call my editor.”)
Eventually it became very warm in the room as the meeting dragged on for four hours till seven pm. Many left after the “Courtesy of the Floor”. I noted to a lawyer that the certifying of the election came before the comments and he was unconcerned, stating the certification was mandatory implying that comments would not change that. I spoke to a Republican Board member and asked this to be changed and it was, not only due to my input but aided by it.
Notable persons in the audience I saw: Glenn Geissinger, Ryan and Milou Mackenzie, Annamarie Robertone, Tom Giovanni,, Andrew Azan, Tom Carroll, Charles Dertinger, Kevin Danyi, Matt Munsey, and Dr. Tom Little. It was largely a mix of LVTP, PIN, and NCRC members with about ten Democrats and several unattached voters.
The process of counting the votes was delayed till that very day due to the “machine glitch”. The county’s 300-plus machines in all 156 precincts flipped “yes” and “no” selections for the two candidates on the printout that voters reviewed on the machine before taking the final step to cast their ballots. No other contests on the ballot were affected, swore Executive McClure at the prior Council meeting. Counting the provisional ballots — about 2,400 total — occurred over the previous few days. 44,791 votes were cast on voting machines and 25,587 by mail. Votes statewide must be certified at the county level by Nov. 21 and submitted to the state no later than Nov. 27, which may have accounted for most of the passion in the room.
There were 45 persons signed up to speak, but three left early. Many of the 45 were quite upset with the county-wide election irregularities that were unable to be fixed and the county having had no backup plan. Voters are at their “peak of mistrust” with the voting system. “ The third speaker complained of switched poll books and machines at Williams Township. I spoke after her and was unable to fully get through Frank DeVito’s two page comment, so the applause surprised me. Others addressed issues including lack of emergency ballots (10 to 25 at most at the polls.), one and a half hours of locked doors at Forks Twp. (a federal offense actually!), people told not to vote at Hanover Twp., that Republicans are the usual victims of error, lack of transparency , and poor communication with election judges. Representative Milo Mackenzie was very passionate about this unAmerican election and demanded McClure’s resignation or there will be national repercussions in 2024. She stated “This is not a Communist country.
It was noted that the “glitch” proved the machines could be programmed to commit fraud. Many demanded paper ballots be used. Glenn Geissinger, NCRC chairman, noted that turning people away from the polls constituted voter suppression and implored the Board not certify the election and not to use these machines again. Geissinger said his research would result in a lawsuit if he finds large numbers of voters were disenfranchised by the machine failures. One asked for a do-over election and about seven who had either won their elections or had their Saucon Valley candidates elected asked to certify the election. Since there was only one microphone to be passed among 8 persons at any time, there was further delay in hearing all the issues, explanations and apologies.
It was obvious that the election judges lacked training in some cases. The decision was made to train every judge, clerk and poll worker in person for the next election. Even though Judge Sam Murray gave a Court order to follow early in the day, communication was poor and not all were able to follow the orders. All provisional ballots were said to have been counted.
Only party chairs were informed of the L&A (logic and accuracy) testing and apparently no Republican showed up, only County and Election Systems and Software (ES&S) staff.
The ES&S VP, Alex Carbullido, apologized profusely and said there would have been no way to fix all the machines on election day. In 2019 the problem was the touch screens were too sensitive which made it difficult to vote one’s choice. In both elections the problem was blamed on human error.
The Board stated they were not consulted on procedures, not informed at the moment and their previous recommendations to Council had been ignored. Scott Hough whose term ends the end of this year along with the other four members, was especially incensed, had many questions and was the only Board member to refuse to sign the certification of the election, so it passed 4 to 1 over many objections. He said there was no way to know how many voters were turned away which put the election results in question. Hough said he had also requested a special meeting for the public to be heard but his request was denied by the Registrar, Christopher Commini. He also asked again for a special meeting to thrash out solutions and Dertinger promised to look into it.
Board member Daniel Lopresti also wanted a written report from ES&S on what had happened, provision of enough paper ballots and better communication with the poll workers.
Board Solicitor Richard Santee explained it was mandatory for the Board to certify the election and send the results to Harrisburg by the 11/27/23 deadline as they had no discretion or authority in the matter. The process is controlled by the administration. The Board spent hours taking the heat for an election they did not actually run. The District Attorney could act on election complaints from the Board, but only a Common Pleas Judge could overturn an election.
It was also noted that the Nazareth area will be split into four voting districts.
(Dertinger has since resigned and I’ve been speaking with others who believe other races were fixed.)
Mostly I read the Delco Times, Jewish Currents, and National Geographic and a smattering of articles, other magazines, the internet, and poems, but usually don’t invest my time in a book.
The Parallel Election by Leah Hoopes and Gregory Stenstrom is the only book I’ve read this year.
However, after buying a copy from Leah at the 2023 Bill of Rights Banquet, ostensibly for a friend, I decided to at least start the book. Four hundred pages later, I realized how extensive the level of fraud was in 2020. I was truly gobsmacked.
Now in one of my my previous lifetimes, volunteering for the Greens, Independent, and Libertarian candidates, we knew the Democrats and Republicans would fight every signature to keep us off the ballot. They would use every means, financial and legal and— If we finally made it on the ballot, we had exhausted all our financial and volunteer resources and could not win, except for occasional Judge of Election races, but nothing that could change the dynamics of uniparty rule. Period, end of sentence, as they used to say in South Philly.
But this book reveals a whole new level of cheating, shall we say the “Super Bowl of Cheating”. Much better than either Northeast or South Philly, where the dead continued to vote, but only for “the right Party.” This was the attack of the “Uniparty”, both Democrat and Republican.
The evidence here was shocking. Yet the evidence couldn’t be presented nor the results definitively challenged.
How is our system different from a totalitarian regime?
Consider an example of cheating in a non political world.
That happens, too.
The Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2017 World Series through a unique sign-stealing plan. Major League Baseball finally (January 2020) confirmed this even though the record books still list the Houston Astros as the winners in the 2017 World Series. Steps were taken to prevent this happening again and, presumably, are effective.
Let me end this, not with an answer, but with a question.
Having said all that, how do we approach changing the rules of the 2024 Primaries as opposed to changing the results of the 2020 Election?
