Truth is stranger than fiction
Only days before the election, Oct. 24, 2020, Joe Biden publicly stated “We have put together the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”
Reuters quickly said it was a slip of the tongue, he meant “voter protection” not “voter fraud.”
After the election, Republicans screamed “voter fraud,” the Democrats cried that’s a “Big Lie.”
The documentary “2,000 Mules” presents convincing evidence that vote fraud actually determined the election.
Nonprofit “True the Vote” analyzed 10 trillion cell phone pings and 4 million minutes of security camera footage from ballot drop boxes.
The movie has helped local law enforcement identify, arrest and prosecute some Democrat operatives.
Evidence of impersonation, fake voter registration, duplicate voting, fraudulent use of absentee ballots, votes flipped from R to D, fraud workers paid, dead people voting, ineligible voters and ballot stuffing in drop boxes late at night are found.
Cases of fraud have been found across the country resulting in convictions and guilty pleas.
Yuma County Arizona now reports impersonation and other fraudulent voter registrations just ahead of their Aug. 2 primary.
As the J 6 Committee Hearings were heating up, Hillary Clinton claimed the protest on Jan. 6 was a conspiracy to overturn the election, an attempted coup.
This after four years of investigating her Trump/Russian collusion hoax, costing tax payers $31.7 million, to help her win the 2016 election.
A recently uncovered old newspaper article indicates voter fraud is a “democrat tactic” handed down through generations.
The old article “ELECTION FRAUDS SIMILAR,” describes cases in Kentucky, Alabama and Missouri detailing; republican election officials replaced with democrats, republican ballots fraudulently counted for democrats, fixed judges and clerks, voters told their name had already voted, ballots illegally removed and boxes ‘stuffed’ with substitutes, fraud workers paid off and much more.
The article was on the front page of St. Louis Weekly Globe-Democrat, Friday Morning, Dec. 27, 1901.
The old paper was discovered by Mt. Pleasant Glass behind a broken mirror of an antique dresser that had been purchased at an estate auction by Dr. Alfred Savage from Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.
A Rasmussen survey finds 52%, including 34% of Democrats, believe fraud affected the 2020 election even though we the people have paid with blood and treasure for the right to confidence that we have a lawfully elected president.
Fairfield Farmers’ Market is great
The Farmers’ Market on Saturday is one of the best things about Fairfield in the summer. It’s good for your family’s health, good for your social connections, and good for the family farms around Fairfield.
Fresh tomatoes, lettuce, vegetables. Onions, carrots, and fresh herbs. Organic produce.
Home baked pies and breads, pastries and honey, Custom made sandwiches and many lunch options. Tea, chai, and jellies. Soaps and salves. Fresh flowers, hand-crafted note cards and jewelry. Starter plants for your garden. Eggs in all colors (green are my favorites). Local vendors grow, make or bake all items that are offered for sale.
The playground abounds with children clambering, swinging and sliding, thanks to the Fairfield Kiwanis, The Greater Jefferson County Foundation, the Cambridge Foundation, the Rotary and many more. Children are lovingly watched over by mothers and grandmothers, fathers and grandfathers.
Live music reaches your ears from the gazebo. Sweet singing, delightful harmonies, beautifully played instruments.
As you stroll under the shade of immense oaks and maples at Howard Park, reflect on the many volunteers and community leaders who made it all possible. It’s a great chance to forget partisan differences and enjoy the kindness of strangers, neighbors finding common ground in food, crafts, and reliable Iowa virtues.
Your stomach will thank you. Your friends will be thrilled to see you. And your heart will delight in the abundance of goodness.
More needed to address teen suicide
The June 17 article on “It’s not too late, call 988” was a very good. I am glad that teen suicide is being brought to the forefront. It is sad that so many young people in our state, not counting the ones that did commit suicide, felt so desperate and down that they have considered or tried to commit suicide. This article addresses only a small portion of those in our state that are in the same situation. How do we help them when they reach out?
What happens when they do call 988 or family tries to intercede? Our mental health care system has deteriorated over the last several years. With less than 100 state mental health beds for a population of over 3 million people and only two access centers falling short of the goal to have six by 2021 someone that needs help quickly may wait 6 months to get into a facility or may have to go to the other side of the state for a bed. I don’t have to tell you what could happen in six months to someone that is suicidal. How would you feel if this were one of your children or family members? We have also heard reports of the lack of psychiatric doctors to treat those with mental health issues. What is our Governor doing to get more qualified psychiatric physicians?
Under Governor Kim Reynolds and Republican legislature, our health care system has taken a hit with lack of personal, inadequate facilities, harmful privatization and inadequate funding. Our small rural communities are hit the worst as more hospitals close. Instead of using our tax dollars to have a healthier more productive population by improve our health care system, the Governor has put millions into a trust and initiated the flat tax that will benefit the more affluent.
Isn’t a trust fund like leaving water in the well for when we need it more when the house is burning down? Having a good healthcare system in Iowa will help keep our adult children here or encourage them to return. Economic development is easier when we show that we care about Iowans. We can do better!
The streets of Mt. Pleasant
I grew up in Mt. Pleasant in the 1950s and 1960s. One of the things that made it a cool town different from many others was that it had brick streets throughout the town. Tires would hum a certain way on these streets. And they always looked good. No repair patches. No potholes.
And the repair crews could come out and tear an entire section out for leveling or for sewer work and have it all put back together like it never happened.
I’ve always wondered who it was that convinced the town to cover all those brick streets with asphalt. They made a pretty penny and you know they did NOT tear out those brick streets, they just covered them over.
I’ve daydreamed of being mayor and getting everyone on board to strip all that asphalt away down to the bricks. Just turn them over and voila! You’ve got a unique town again, with easily repairable brick streets!
