Looking for a ‘Bush v Gore’ in Ecuador

leave a comment »

Ecuador Map

 

A couple of Sundays ago, Ecuador had a presidential election, and a leftist named Lenin Moreno defeated a center-right businessman, Guillermo Lasso.

It was so close that Mr. Lasso called for a recount, especially after some “irregularities” showed up.  

So the left opted for the Gore gambit, or a partial recount of the votes (via Fausta’s Blog).

Guess who won the partial recount!  Who else but the leftist named after Lenin?  Whom else did you expect when the incumbent president running the recount was committed to the leftist winning?

This is from the BBC:

Following a recount of almost 1.3 million votes in Ecuador, the electoral council has confirmed left-wing candidate Lenín Moreno as the winner of the presidential poll held on 2 April.

The recount slightly boosted Mr Moreno’s margin over his conservative rival, Guillermo Lasso.

Mr. Lasso had demanded a full recount citing allegations of fraud but the national electoral council only agreed to a recount of 10% of the votes.

Mr. Moreno will be sworn in on 24 May.

As I was reading this story about the partial recount, it occurred to me that Ecuador could have used their own version of Bush v. Gore, the Supreme Court decision from 2000 that shut down partial recounts in Florida.

I appreciate the U.S. every day that I watch the left steal elections in Latin America.

God bless the USA and Bush v. Gore!

Destroying Bill O’Reilly

leave a comment »

bill-oreilly-fox

For quite some time, I’ve watched The Factor at 7 pm or later at 10pm. I always found the segments interesting, stimulating and often funny, such as Miller’s weekly contribution.

We learned that Fox said “No mas” and O’Reilly is off the air. Put me down as one of those 4 million who isn’t happy.     

Let me be clear that I don’t support sexual harassment or the mistreatment of anyone in the work environment.   

I do see a lot of selective indignation, specially when the allegations came from an article in the New York Times. Isn’t this the same paper that endorsed Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton and loves Ted Kennedy?

Is Roger Simon right that this is really about Trump? I think that Roger is on to something here:    

 

The real target in the defenestration of Bill was not O’Reilly himself but very obviously Donald Trump.  He’s the Big Kahuna the obscenely named “Resistance” (hey, you idiots, that was about Auschwitz, not tax reform) is after and Bill was only a stop along the way.

Indeed, several of Bill’s accusers, represented by the daughter of Gloria Allred, appear to be people who find Trump particularly loathsome. 

And the original story was broken by the New York Times, the literary capital of the “Resistance.”

And how all of the advertisers were put together to unite against O’Reilly? It’s all too cute and organized for me!   

By the way, does anyone at Mercedes Benz, one of the advertisers that pulled out, really think that people will buy more of their cars now because they pulled their ads? Are they checking on the moral character of all of the other places where they advertise?

In a perfect world, men would treat women with respect, ladies would not seek professional or economic sugar daddies, MSNBC would do segments on the women who accused Bill Clinton, the feminists would refuse to support Hillary Clinton because she enabled her husband’s misconduct and “the flakes” in Harvard would call for the removal of everything Kennedy from the college because of allegations about their past.   

Of course, we don’t live in a perfect world.   We live in one where the left is out to destroy anyone who they disagree with. In other words, this is not about sexual harassment but rather Fox News. I hope that Mr. Murdoch’s sons have figured that out! It won’t be long before another effort is made to bring down Sean Hannity or Tucker Carlson because they promote “hate” or challenge guests on global warming.
