(Chuck Muth) – When President Trump and his supporters say “stop the count,” they’re NOT saying don’t count legally cast ballots. They’re saying stop counting ballots until the ballot-counting process can be properly observed.
As former Soviet Union dictator Joseph Stalin famously is quoted as saying, “It’s not the people who vote that count, it’s the people who count the votes.”
One need not be a conspiratorialist to acknowledge that the new election system imposed on Nevadans by Gov. Steve Sisolak and the Democrat-controlled Legislature back in August (AB4) – just three months before a major presidential election! – is a complete mess.
The biggest problem, of course, is that ALL voters were automatically mailed ballots even if they didn’t request a mail-in absentee ballot. That was a recipe for disaster for all kinds of reasons and everybody knew it.
Sisolak and the Democrats did it anyway.
The biggest problem is that people who should have been removed from the voter list…weren’t.
Which means ballots were mailed to people who shouldn’t have been mailed to – including a suspected 80,000 people who SHOULD have been removed from the Clark County list after the primary. An example…
Let’s say your spouse passed away seven years ago.
And let’s say you failed to notify the Election Department – which surely happens because, let’s face it, when you lose a loved one, probably the last thing you worry about is calling the Election Department.
And why would you? Your spouse can no longer vote, right? After all, they’re dead. So what’s the big deal, right?
Your deceased spouse then doesn’t vote in the next few elections. As such, the Election Department mails your spouse a postcard, suspecting that your spouse either moved or passed away. And if the post office returns the postcard indicating your spouse no longer lives there, then your spouse can be removed from the voter file.
But since YOU still live at the address, the postcard is delivered by the post office and not returned to the Election Department. As such, your spouse remains on the voter file.
Which, in the “old days” before AB4, wasn’t such a potential problem. After all, your spouse wasn’t going to show up on election day and try to vote, right? And unless you really intended to commit voting fraud, you’re not going to request an absentee mail-in ballot on behalf of your deceased spouse.
So the potential for the dead fraudulently voting was minimal.
But under the new Sisolak System, all the dead voters who were still on the voting list were automatically mailed an unsolicited ballot. Which made it easy and convenient for anyone willing to cast an illegal vote on behalf of a dead person.
All you do is fill out the dead person’s ballot and sign it as closely as you can to the deceased person’s signature and mail it in. The odds of such an unscrupulous individual getting caught is practically nil.
The solution is simple: Stop automatically mailing ballots to dead people. Duh.
And the only way to do that is to stop automatically mailing ballots to everyone UNLESS they specifically request a mail-in ballot.
So let it be written; so let it be done.

RINO Hunt Update
As I reported last week, there is an internal struggle within the Nevada Republican Assembly Caucus over The Three RINOs – Assistant Minority Leader Jill Tolles, Assistant Minority Leader Tom Roberts & Political Director Glen Leavitt – who are currently in leadership positions and ought to be replaced.
The leadership election is scheduled to take place on Friday at a caucus meeting in Las Vegas.
There are currently four members of the caucus who appear to be undecided on whether to keep The Three RINOs in their jobs or replace them with more-principled conservatives: Assemblywoman Lisa Krasner, Assemblywoman Melissa Hardy, Assemblyman Greg Hafen and Assemblywoman-elect Heidi Kasama.
If you’re unhappy with the direction and management of the “go along to get along” leadership of the Republican Assembly Caucus and want to see new leadership, here’s the contact information to reach out and make your voice heard.
Phone: (775) 420-8411
And, of course, these caucus members who are considering supporting The Three RINOs need to be reminded that there are only 16 months to go before filing opens in GOP primary races for 2022.
Speak now or forever hold your peace!
* Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak – “Daddy Dearest” – did another of his “Don’t make me come in there!” press conferences yesterday and threatened Nevadans with a new #SisolakShutdown 2.0 “emergency” order. How much longer will Nevadans stand for this systemic destruction of our lives and livelihoods?
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“You have to actually have people at home, close nonessential businesses, stop bars, stop indoor dining, have everyone wearing face masks. These are the things we need to do. And, by the way, just doing it in isolated places is not going to solve it either. You need to do it nationwide.” – Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a member of Joe Biden’s coronavirus advisory committee
