I awoke at 4:00am and wondered if clouds had moved in overnight to obscure my ability to see the “Blood Moon” total eclipse. These celestial events usually are obscured for me in my area. Not this time. My weather app told me it was cloudy out and I really couldn’t tell from eastern view out my bedroom window. So, I got up, put on my boots and coat and went to my kitchen door to step outside and see stars in the sky, no clouds. I looked around the corner of the house and there was the red moon in the process of its lunar eclipse hanging in the western sky of my front yard. It was just above ‘freezing’ this morning here in NE Ohio, so, I came back in for warmer layers and woke my husband to join me in our driveway. I took several photos with my iPhone over the course of two hours. This is the best total eclipse blood moon my iPhone could do at just before 6:00am in west above my neighbor’s house. The moon was actually even darker than depicted here. It doesn’t help all the homes on my street have outside security lights. When I get a new phone it needs a better camera! We were able to see some super bright stars and even a faint Milky Way band or two. Anyhow, as I looked high into the twinkling of God’s candles in the endless lonely darkness, I said a prayer for the best outcome as possible today for the elections in order to halt the rabid insanity being inflicted on this nation. God, please help us to help ourselves. That’s sincerely all we ask, Lord.
There are a couple of things we need to get absolutely clear right now.
1.) When you hear somebody, especially a leftist/democrat, bemoaning this is “a fight for the soul of this nation,” guard like Hell your soul, folks, and remember these are the same damn people that sharpen their claws whenever there is a Christian (of any stripe) political candidate, or Justice/judge nominee, and frantically warn of a “theocracy” should these candidates gain a seat in the chamber(s). These are the same people that just decades ago demanded “don’t hang your morality around my neck.” And their messiah constantly chided us “This is not who we are” whenever there was opposition to what was being crammed down our collective throat/mind. O’Holy Bama is still at it…
The kind of slash and burn politics that we’re seeing right now, that doesn’t have to be who we are. We can be better – and your vote tomorrow will help us get there. pic.twitter.com/e8LclYphIK

Oh, there’s that smug superiority “not who we are” claptrap again.

2.) Which brings me to … Understand that the dems/left are using the recent SCOTUS ruling on “Dobbs”, which did not outlaw abortion. It put the matter back into the states where it belongs. This alleged “right” is not in the U.S. Constitution, therefore is the responsibility of each individual state to write in detail, present to the state’s citizens, and then put it on election ballots for the people to vote on. The left’s obsession of abortion is quite telling. They are insisting that this one issue outweighs all things you are deciding on as priorities for you and your families, not our economy or ability to work and provide for ourselves and our families, what our children are exposed to as “education” but is seriously just cultural indoctrination. We are being told/bullied into accepting the racist/gender/sexual social-construction BS. But yet, they predicate their exasperated imploring of the plebe masses to vote for democrats, not for republicans, on killing unborn babies and back it up with this unhinged crap …

Isn’t this the bloke that just a couple years ago was crying on TV about his sick newborn son? And here are the child’s parents promoting abortion. Begs a question I could propose but won’t.

3.) They keep breathlessly frothing at the mouth while warning that if democrats do not prevail against the projected ‘red wave,’ well then, “democracy” is dead. Period!!! Shut out the lights. Lock the door. Uh-huh …
Paul Joseph Watson: Analyst Warns “There Probably Won’t be an Election” in 2024: Martin Armstrong claims the United States won’t exist after 2032.
… While we have rejected their version of the meaning of the word “democracy” we also must thoroughly recognize and understand what’s really going on behind their words. They (dems/leftists/MSM) are very actively in the process of fulfilling Barack Obama’s vow to “fundamentally transform,“ and that means blowing-up our actual status of a Constitutional Representative Republic, not a “democracy.” In 2016 Hillary Clinton was supposed to win the election Obama and the DNC/MSM had set her up for and continue his agenda, but she didn’t win, thankfully, and Trump won and dragged us back from the anti-American(s) precipice Obama had set up for us. Cuba calls itself a democracy. Venezuela calls itself a democracy. China and North Korea argue they are democracies. Why? Because they hold “elections” (even if it’s just one name selection on the ballot). Other than that, their peoples can just suck-it and do what they’re told, including who they vote for under penalty of something really bad happening to them. We, the U.S.A., DO NOT ever want to be a “democracy.” Ever.
When I was a kid they called themselves the “Democrat Party”. About 20yrs ago I noticed they began insisting it’s the “Democratic Party”. I guess after they lose today it’ll be changed to the “Democracy Party”. https://t.co/d2d7xxi9Br

FNC (LIVE UPDATES link): MIDTERM MANEUVER – How a Dem-run city’s last-minute rule change could slow down the vote-counting process
Philadelphia imposes last-minute election change that will slow down vote count
Philadelphia officials voted Tuesday morning to impose a last-minute rule change that will draw out the vote-count process.
The city’s three-member elections board voted 2-1 in favor of imposing poll book reconciliation, a lengthy process intended to prevent double votes, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Tuesday. The reconciliation process would flag any mail-in ballots from voters who also cast ballots in person.
City commissioners made the eleventh-hour decision at a 7 a.m. meeting on Tuesday. The board is comprised of two Democrats and one Republican . The Republican voted in favor of the change, along with one of the Democrats, while the second Democrat objected.

ABC News: Justice Department to monitor voting rights across 24 states: The Justice Department is sending monitors to 24 states in an effort to ensure compliance with federal voting rights laws in the midterm elections
Brianna Herlihy: ACCESS DENIED – DeSantis bans Justice Department from putting certain monitors inside polling places
DeSantis administration says federal poll monitors ‘not permitted’ at Florida polling sites
The DeSantis administration warned Biden’s Department of Justice late Monday that federal Election Day poll monitors are “not permitted” inside polling places under Florida law, and said Florida will send its own monitors to “ensure there is no interference in the voting process.”
On Monday, the DOJ released a list of 64 jurisdictions within 24 states in which the department plans to send attorneys to “monitor for compliance with federal voting rights laws” on Election Day. Included in that list are Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties in Florida.
Brad McVay, general counsel to Florida’s Department of State, told the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department in a Monday letter that the DOJ “seem[ed] to indicate” that these monitors will be placed inside polling places. However, he said that is not permitted.
“Section 102.031(3)(a) of the Florida Statutes lists the people who ‘may enter any polling room or polling place,’” McVay wrote. “Department of Justice personnel are not included on the list.”

Many states don’t allow mail-in ballots to be counted before Election Day.
But many races can’t be called until mail-ins are counted, which can take over 24h.
This is normal, but some GOP are laying ground to claim any race not called tonight is suspicious. Don’t fall for it.

Kerry Picket: Hochul accuses Zeldin of ‘hyperventilating’ about crime in New York
Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul claims her GOP challenger Rep. Lee Zeldin is “hyperventilating” over the crime problems in the state.
During a campaign stop Monday at the 72nd Street subway station in Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Mrs. Hochul said Mr. Zeldin has been “trying to scare people for months” over the crime issue.
“And New Yorkers are on to it,” the governor said. “All the legitimate media organizations have called him out for what he is doing — fear-mongering,” she said. “That’s not just here in New York. That has been the Republican playbook all across this country.”
Asked by The Washington Times why her campaign has taken a “mocking tone” with New Yorkers who have experienced legitimate fear about crime in the city, particularly in the subways, Mrs. Hochul called that “an absurd assessment.”
“We have been in the subway,” she said. “I stood there with Mayor Adams just a few days ago, talking about an intelligent plan, not just to scare people to say that’s over here. And you can scare people, but I’m working on a real solution,” referring to her announcement with Mr. Adams in late October known as the “Cops, Cameras, Care” initiative…
Are we supposed to infer that since she and the Mayor weren’t assaulted while in the subway that it’s ridiculous to believe the subways aren’t safe? Because I’m pretty damn sure both she and Adams had more than enough armed law enforcement with them to scare-off anyone looking for trouble. Just sayin’, Kath.

I&I: FBI Buries the Data on Murder Rates
Based on a misunderstanding of new FBI data, NewsNation is reporting that 14,677 murders occurred in the U.S. during 2021, a supposedly large decline from 2020. In reality, that figure is far from complete, and comprehensive records from death certificates show that about 24,493 people were murdered in 2021. This is about:
- 1,000 more murders than in 2020.
- 6,000 more murders than in 2019.
- 10,000 more murders than NewsNation reported.
Murders have become so common over the past two years that if the murder rate remains at the 2021 level, one out of every 179 people in the U.S. will eventually be murdered. Yet, certain politicians and media outlets are downplaying this bloodshed, while others are blaming it on Covid—a claim at odds with the facts…
