I think we all know the Roy Moore vote was skewed, don’t we? Probably in multiple ways.
First we have George Soros plowing millions of dollars into the race. Then we have the regstration of felons to vote at record paces. Then of course we have the hit job against Judge Roy Moore, with the false accusations.
But now we have numbers.
It appears like the numbers are extremely out of line for what should have been expected in this election. The voter turnout was nearly the same as a Presidential Election, which NEVER happens. Usually it’s 30% less or more.
Now, how could that have happened? Oh I don’t know, busing in felons and illegals and registering them to vote in mass numbers? Now if only we had someone who could fund that operation (hint hint Soros).
Take a look:

A co-founder of the opposition research firm Fusion GPS acknowledged in a new court document that his company hired the wife of a senior Justice Department official to help investigate then-candidate Donald Trump last year.
The confirmation from Glenn Simpson came in a signed declaration filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., and provided a fuller picture of the nature of Nellie Ohr’s work – after Fox News first reported on her connection to Fusion GPS.
Her husband, Bruce Ohr, was demoted at the DOJ last week for concealing his meetings with the same company, which commissioned the anti-Trump “dossier” containing salacious allegations about the now-president. Together, the Fusion connections for Mr. and Mrs. Ohr have raised Republican concerns about objectivity at the Justice Department, and even spurred a call from Trump’s outside counsel for a separate special prosecutor.
Simpson’s statement shows Mrs. Ohr was indeed involved in the Trump research. He said bank records reflect Fusion GPS contracted with her “to help our company with its research and analysis of Mr. Trump.”
Robot platforms that make life-changing decisions are innately racist and sexist, according to computer science experts.
A report by the Telegraph noted experts highlighting artificial intelligence (AI) used to assess people in decisions, such as bank loans or university places, being discriminatory against women and non-white people.
One researcher noted to the BBC that the bias came from faulty data simply reflecting society's own inequalities, rather than working towards eliminating them.
"If you want to take steps towards changing that you can't just use historical information," expert Maxine Mackintosh said.
Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai is facing an online backlash after joking about the implications of repealing net neutrality.
Pai appeared in a video wielding a fidget spinner and performing the Harlem Shake just one day before a decisive vote is cast over whether to repeal net neutrality—the principle that internet service providers should treat all online traffic equally.
The video appeared on conservative news site The Daily Caller on Wednesday, ahead of Thursday’s vote by the FCC that is expected to reverse the Obama-era “Open Internet Order” regulations.
“Recently, there’s been quite a bit of conversation about my plan to restore internet freedom,” Pai said in the video’s introduction. “Here are just a few of the things you’ll still be able to do on the internet after these Obama-era regulations are repealed.”
Rep. José Serrano (D-NY) was knocked over by a giant clock during a Net Neutrality Rally in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.
Serrano was delivering his closing remarks when the giant fake clock behind him fell over and forced the congressman off stage.
“Wow. I’ve never been hit that hard in the South Bronx,” Serrano joked after getting to his feet.
PBS has suspended late-night talk show “Tavis Smiley” amid misconduct allegations against its host and namesake.
“Effective today, PBS has indefinitely suspended distribution of ‘Tavis Smiley,’ produced by TS Media, an independent production company,” the public broadcaster said. “PBS engaged an outside law firm to conduct an investigation immediately after learning of troubling allegations regarding Mr. Smiley. This investigation included interviews with witnesses as well as with Mr. Smiley. The inquiry uncovered multiple, credible allegations of conduct that is inconsistent with the values and standards of PBS, and the totality of this information led to today’s decision.”
Sources close to the production told Variety that PBS hired attorney Sarah Taylor Wirtz of the firm MSK to oversee an investigation into Smiley’s behavior after receiving allegations of misconduct by Smiley, who hosts and produces the talk show. Wirtz declined Variety‘s request for comment. According to sources, MSK took reports from 10 witnesses, a mix of men and women of different races and employment levels in Smiley’s organization, most of them former staffers.
The investigation found credible allegations that Smiley had engaged in sexual relationships with multiple subordinates, sources said. Some witnesses interviewed expressed concern that their employment status was linked to the status of a sexual relationship with Smiley. In general, witnesses described Smiley as creating a verbally abusive and threatening environment that went beyond what could be expected in a typical high-pressure work environment. Several expressed concerns about retaliation.
In a statement posted Thursday evening on Facebook, Smiley said, “I have the utmost respect for women and celebrate the courage of those who have come forth to tell their truth. To be clear, I have never groped, coerced, or exposed myself inappropriately to any workplace colleague in my entire broadcast career, covering 6 networks over 30 years.”

HUNDREDS of youths have allegedly bashed and robbed tourists amid a series of wild brawls on Melbourne’s St Kilda’s foreshore this morning.
Police struggled to contain the situation as young people of African appearance fought each other and assaulted bystanders early Thursday morning.
Shocking video has emerged showing young men and woman kicking, punching and slapping each other as dozens of onlookers shout abuse.
Police were called to The Esplanade about 2.55am after 60 youths trashed a McDonald’s restaurant, throwing chairs and smashing a window.
It followed a series of assaults and robberies along the Esplanade earlier in the evening which police described as “unacceptable”.
Inspector Jason Kelly said police were investigating.
“Unfortunately last night we had a large number of youth attend, of African appearance, who have engaged in anti-social behaviour.
“They’ve committed crimes, they’ve been involved in a number of assaults on the foreshore of St Kilda.
“Their behaviour was just totally unacceptable and I’d call on them to come forward and hand themselves in before we track them down.”
Dismissed Trump aide Omarosa Manigault gave an explosive exit interview to Good Morning America on Thursday. She said she resigned her position, that she was not fired. In fact, Manigault claims her resignation isn't effective until January the 20th. Manigault's official title is Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison.
GMA host Michael Strahan asked her to explain reports that she was distressed with President Trump's reaction to Charlottesville and his public support of Roy Moore. Manigault said she has to be "very careful" about her response because, according to her, "I have to go back and work with these individuals."
"I have to be very careful about how I answer this but there were a lot of things that I observed during the last year that I was very unhappy with, that I was very uncomfortable with, things that I observed, that I heard, that I listened to," she said.
However, in true reality show fashion, Omarosa teased she has a "story to tell" and she will do so when she officially leaves the White House.
"But when I have a chance to tell my story to tell -- quite a story -- as the only African-American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people and when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear," Omarosa promised.
"I had more access than most and people had problems with that, people had problems with my 14-year relationship with this president. I’ve always been loyal to him," she said.
Omarosa, however, did not bash Trump.
A large poster of Kate Steinle was torn down at the University of California, Berkeley hours after students held a vigil to reflect on her life and mourn the acquittal of the illegal immigrant charged in her death.
The Thursday night vigil wasn't without controversy; as some students spoke, others nearby chanted in dissent.
“They were shouting during my remarks, and throughout the vigil. Before, during and after,” Naweed Tahmas, external vice president of the Berkeley College Republicans, told the College Fix.
After the vigil ended, a small memorial was left behind on the steps of Sproul Hall, including flowers, candles spelling out "Kate," and an easel with a large picture of Steinle’s smiling face. Before dawn, the poster of Steinle’s face was torn off the stand and put in the trash.
Thirty-two-year-old Steinle was shot and killed in 2015 by a ricocheted bullet on Pier 14 in the Embarcadero district of San Francisco. President Trump frequently raised her death on the campaign trail, and her killing has been at the center of the debate over immigration laws and so-called sanctuary cities in the United States.
“Last night we held a candlelight vigil in honor of Kate Steinle. This morning someone tore up our poster of her and threw it in the trash. This is typical at UC Berkeley, where honoring the legacy of someone who was killed by a 7-time felon and 5-time deportee is offensive,” the Berkeley College Republicans posted on Facebook Friday.
Scorning the reappearance of his female accusers, President Trump on Tuesday went after Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), who called for his resignation on Monday. "Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office 'begging' for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!" -- ("Crooked" is a reference to Hillary Clinton. Gillibrand recently said that in retrospect, Bill Clinton's should have resigned during the Monica Lewinskey scandal.) In response, Sen. Gillibrand tweeted to Trump: "You cannot silence me or the millions of women who have gotten off the sidelines to speak out about the unfitness and shame you have brought to the Oval Office."
Gillibrand has made a name for herself by standing up for the many women who have alleged sexual improprieties on the part of politicians or other famous men. Gillibrand was the first Senate Democrat to call on fellow Democrat Al Franken to resign. Trump's critics in the media went wild over the president's tweet, berating him for suggesting, they said, that Gillibrand performed sexual favors for Trump's campaign money. "Morning Joe's" Mika Brzezinski said she was literally shaking with anger after Trump's 8 a.m. tweet. "Let's just say it!" she said. "He's suggesting that Kirsten Gillibrand would have sex with him in order to get campaign contributions. The president actually tweeted that this morning!" -- "That's delusional," contributor Elise Jordan said. The show's hosts said it's time for the women around Trump to speak out or quit:
"Maybe it's Ivanka Trump -- maybe she will finally stand up for what is right, since her father just literally sexually harassed in a cruel way a woman on Twitter," Brzezinski said. Elise Jordan said Trump has "weaponized his platform in a way that no politician in this country ever has agaainst a gender." Jordan said she doesn't think it will be tolerated, "because this country is having a cultural moment right now." "We're done," Brzezinski agreed. In an earlier tweet on Tuesday, Trump wrote: "Despite thousands of hours wasted and many millions of dollars spent, the Democrats have been unable to show any collusion with Russia - so now they are moving on to the false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don’t know and/or have never met. FAKE NEWS!" Three of the women who accused Trump of sexually harassing them during the campaign appeared Monday on Megyn Kelly's show on MSNBC, then held a news conference, demanding that Congress investigate Trump for his alleged misbehavior.

A gang who flew drugs , mobile phones and TV boxes into prisons using hi-tech drones were jailed on Wednesday after they were caught on cameras set to film wildlife.
The group, led by a serving inmate, smuggled goods into seven prisons in England and Scotland using the technique.
Members of the gang flew the remote-controlled drones equipped with a fishing line and hooks to cell windows.
Inmates in contact with the pilot then used tools such as extendable broom handles to retrieve the contraband.
Jail CCTV showed other prisoners visiting the cells and walking out with packages containing the goods.
But cameras set up to film wildlife outside HMP Hewell in Worcestershire caught the gang by chance while they were smuggling contraband into the prison.

In the clip, a young girl can be seen throwing the concrete block at the terrified animal several times while she is encouraged by people laughing close by.
After the heartless attack the kitten is left for dead, while a girl off camera can be heard saying "put it on the concrete or else it won't f****** die".
The footage is believed to have been filmed in Invercargill, on the South Island, New Zealand, and has already been shared almost 250,000 times.
A young girl can be seen hurling the kitten onto a patch of grass before another person throws a block of concrete at it.
Animal rights groups have now called for those responsible for the sickening attack to be publicly named and shamed.
Paw Justice wrote on Facebook: "We made the very hard call to post an horrific video of a kitten being stoned to death. We did that because we know sometimes the hardest truths are the only ones that get results.
"You cannot un-see what you have seen, and we cannot undo what has been done to that little kitten. Animal abuse is an ugly, messy reality and we believe the fight must be made public."
Furious viewers responded to the footage being shared on social media.
Ainslie Jalfron said: "This is where the law must upheld to the fullest extent to denounce and deter this despicable behaviour. And these kids need a serious intervention along with their punishment."
Helen Anderson added: "As the offenders of this horrific act of cruelty are all underage, their parents should be held accountable for their actions and prosecuted."
And Karina O'Brien said: "RIP little kitty my heart is heavy with sorrow for an innocence life so violently taken. I hope justice is served and these cruel vile beings are punished properly."
This is the harrowing moment a herd of deer jumped from a motorway bridge to their deaths in front of horrified motorists.
The buck and three does were spotted walking down the highway in Cedar Springs, Michigan, over the weekend.
Witness Catherine Veerhusen and her husband said they slowed down and were hoping the deer would retreat when they inexplicably bolted.
To their horror, the buck led the group towards the bridge and leapt over the 30ft drop.

She later told the Des Moines Register: "I've never seen anything like this.
"No words, no words."
This is the shocking moment an 'unlicensed' driver speeds in the wrong direction and crashes her brand-new BMW into nine cars, a scooter and a bicycle.
The woman suffered serious injuries during the crash and is one of three people still receiving treatment, while the cyclist she slammed into sadly died at the scene.
She does not have a driving licence, according to local media.
The accident was captured by CCTV cameras in Shantou City in China's southern Guangdong Province and is said to have taken place outside the Vienna Hotel.
The clip shows the woman's white BMW, which was still using temporary number plates, veering into the opposite lane and slamming into the cyclist who flies up into the air during the horrific accident.
The BMW then crashes into the parked cars, damaging no fewer than nine of them while also destroying an electric scooter in the process.
Local authorities rushed the injured to a local hospital before detaining the driver and getting her medical treatment.
Fortunately, the cars she crashed into were all unoccupied at the time.
The three other injured included the driver and two pedestrians, the police said.
The woman has been identified as a local hotel employee.
The police are still investigating.

This is the moment Santa came to the rescue when a woman took a nasty tumble on the pavement - banging her head and flinging her shopping across the road.
Luckily Father Christmas was driving past the scene in Watford and leapt out of his car to help - as dashcam footage showed.
The video shows the car in front skidding to a halt next to the woman who was lying on her back, unable to get up.
Despite the icy conditions he dashes across the road - just about managing to keep himself from falling too.
He tries to pick her up but she falls down again, unable to get a grip on the icy pavement.
But eventually he lifts her to her feet.
Luckily, apart from a few bruises, it appears the woman was fine as she grabbed her shopping trolley which had also toppled over in the process.
The man then picks up her shopping off the road and puts it back into the bag. He even manages to put the lady's woolly hat back on her head.
After this good deed this man will be on Santa's nice list for sure.

This is the shocking moment an 11-year-old girl screamed in terror and pleaded "No!" as police officers held her at gunpoint and handcuffed her.
Police were searching for the youngster's aunt who was wanted for the attempted murder of her sister.
But instead of finding her, police ordered Honestie Hodges to leave her home and marched her into a police car in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
In the upsetting bodycam footage, Honestie screams: "No! No! No!"
Police tell her: "You’re not going to jail or anything, put your hands behind your back. "
They also tell her: "Stop yelling. You’re going to walk backwards to me, ok?
"You’re fine, you’re alright."
All the while, Honestie, clearly distressed, keeps crying and shouting "No!".
Honestie and two other women were detained.
The Grand Rapids Police Department said they detained the women and Honestie because officers had not determined if they were suspects.
None of the women were armed and were released.
Grand Rapids Police Department spokeswoman Cathy Williams said Honestie was handcuffed for two minutes and police patted her down to make sure she wasn’t carrying a weapon.
Honestie said: "I’m afraid to open or go near my back door because of what happened.
"It made me feel scared and it made me feel like I did something wrong."
She also said she previously wanted to be a police officer, but now she wants "nothing to do with it".
Police said in a statement: "The Grand Rapids Police Major Case Team is currently investigating an attempted murder stemming from the December 6th domestic-related stabbing in the 1300 block of Hamilton Av NW.
"Once onscene, officers determined that the suspect fled the residence still armed with the knife.
"Their investigation led to a second Westside Grand Rapids home where it was believed the suspect may have fled to.
"As officers were setting up a perimeter, three females simultaneously exited the home, two adults and one 11 year old juvenile.
"Until it could be determined that the individuals were not the suspect, nor armed with a weapon, the three were ordered back to officers and detained.
"The homeowner gave consent to search the home, and it was deemed that none of the three individuals that exited the home were the suspect officers were searching for nor was the suspect in the home.
"The females were subsequently released.
"Following a complaint filed on behalf of the 11 year old female, the Grand Rapids Police Department opened an internal investigation which is still ongoing."
This was the horrifying scene at a branch of McDonald's when a violent mass brawl involving rival women broke out.
Footage of the fight shows a multitude of punches and kicks being traded as numerous customers weighed in.
The video was captured on a mobile phone at a branch of the fast food restaurant in Michigan, USA, and posted on LiveLeak this week.
It is not known what caused the fracas, with a group of at least four brawlers seen slapping a woman in a red top in the face.
As she fights them off, a number of individual confrontations break out as the scene descends into chaos.
During the 40 second video, she is seen being forcibly pushed out of the door.
The mobile phone footage shows another group of three women pulling each others' hair and landing slaps.
Two of them continue to lash out at each other as they fall to the ground.
According to the caption, it was taken at a restaurant in Berrien, Michigan, but no further details are given about whether any of those involved were arrested.
A mysterious red beam pictured close to the International Space Station (ISS) proves that an alien mothership is trying to destroy it, according to UFO enthusiasts.
NASA footage shows the red light in footage taken from the space station, which orbits more than 200 miles above the earth.
When it was posted on YouTube, with the title 'UFO fires red beam at the ISS', one commenter wrote: "I’ve wondered many times if the ISS has been contacted and/or visited, docked, by a ‘visitor.’
"What was that red beam? All of the astronauts on the ISS have info we can only imagine about.
"That beam could be anything from information or even teleportation. We don’t know so we can let our minds roll with it. That beam is real, the only definite we have!"
A plane was forced to make an emergency landing after an unruly man began biting and even hitting fellow travellers.
Video footage shows how stunned passengers were asked to help restrain him as crew desperately tried to get him under control.
The mid-air drama unfolded as the JetBlue flight was flying over the US state of Utah.
Shocking footage shows the man, wearing a red T-shirt, lashing out at those sat next to him.
His arms flail in the air as he tries to strike those closest to him and screaming can be heard.
He started biting his seatmates before hitting others on the flight from Los Angeles to New York.
Doctors on board were asked to check on the man, but they were also attacked.
Another passenger intervened and held the man's arms behind his back until flight attendants could put restraints on him.
But in the footage the man can still be seen biting down in mid-air as if getting ready to strike again.
The man apparently knew the people he started biting on the Sunday flight, CBS News reported.
But the mid-air assault forced the pilots to divert and land in Las Vegas, where he was escorted off the aircraft by police.
The passenger who intervened, named only as Tom, said: “He was punching the passengers next to him, flailing his arms around, just acting irrational, crazy."
He added: “I grabbed his hands behind his back and held him there while the flight attendants put the restraints on him.
"At that point, he started yelling and tried to come towards the flight attendant, behind me, at the time. I really had a hell of a time keeping him in place there.”
JetBlue confirmed the man had been removed from the aircraft after the flight landed in Las Vegas. And in a statement it added: "Remaining customers resumed their scheduled flight to New York without further incident".
The flight arrived in New York hours late.
Las Vegas police told local media that the man was not charged.
Eerie footage of a Bible and a cushion moving on their own has convinced a startled dad that a former landlady is haunting her old pub.
Ghost hunter Sean Reynolds claims the ghost of the woman, named Betty, revealed herself at the building in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, while he was filming.
The landlady died in 1893, but Sean, 34, believes she was captured pouring herself a Christmas tipple.
He is seen urging the ghost to make herself known before alarms on his paranormal detection kit go off.
Sean said he felt a blast of ice cold air whisk past him before a camera set up in another room picked up spine-tingling footage of a cushion and bible visibly being moved.
A 32-year-old maniac stripped naked on a busy motorway, climbed on top of vehicles and started stabbing them with a cutting tool in a bizarre road rage incident.
Footage even shows the naked man jumping on top a moving flatbed truck and repeatedly stabbing the roof of the cab.
Shocked drivers could not believe what they were seeing when they filmed the strange turn of events on Route 28 in Fairfax County, Virginia.
The scenario started as a three-vehicle accident which then led to a fight between two men - one of them being Jose Gonzalez Flores who soon stripped naked.
Last July, Tiffany McNeil would walk into the Branch County Jail in handcuffs only to leave in a stretcher moments later after being brutally assaulted by a police officer and knocked unconscious.
What happened while McNeil, 31, was being processed into jail that fateful day is now the subject of a federal lawsuit alleging that police used excessive force and then lied about what happened. The incident—in which a half dozen cops stood by and watched their brother in blue smash a handcuffed woman’s face into the pavement—was also captured on video.
“It was absolutely egregious, disgusting, thug-like conduct,” McNeil’s attorney, Solomon Radner, said. “You don’t expect that from police officers, and it shouldn’t be tolerated.”
On July 24, police were called to McNeil’s home by her husband during an argument. According to the lawsuit, McNeil had been drinking which sparked the argument.
McNeil was arrested and brought to the Branch County Jail to be processed for the incident. As police bring her into the secured entrance, we can see this disturbing scenario unfold.
The woman-beating cop, identified in the lawsuit as Lewis Eastmead, is seen shoving McNeil’s face into the concrete wall for several minutes. The entire time, McNeil is non-combative and not resisting in the least—not to mention, she’s in handcuffs.
All of the sudden, the officer begins pressing her face into the wall with both hands before pulling her backward and slamming her face-first into the concrete floor. McNeil was knocked out immediately.
During the attack on the restrained woman, five other cops watched as their brother in blue degraded the young woman by shoving her face into the wall and not a single one of them intervened as he slammed her to the floor.
A woman was saved by a heroic bus driver while being attacked by a Tibetan Mastiff in the middle of a road in east China.

A 36-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a waitress was pushed under a train in Romania.
Alina Ciucu, 25, was killed after she was crushed under the carriages of the metro at the Dristor 1 subway station in Bucharest on Tuesday night.
Passengers initially believed the young woman had committed suicide but, after reviewing CCTV footage of the incident, police determined that she had been pushed.
Authorities released images of the suspect and a woman was arrested overnight.
The suspect told officers she did not have a home and often slept in Bucharest's Gara de Nord station overnight.
Footage of the horrific crime shows Ms Ciucu being shoved from behind with great force by her attacker.
The victim falls on to the tracks as the other woman, who is dressed in black, kicks at her hands to stop her climbing back on to the platform before the train enters the station.
It is alleged the suspect had tried to attack another woman at a different subway station earlier that day but had been fought off.
Police said the woman who had been arrested admitted that she was the person in the CCTV images.
Neither victim was known to the suspect and officers believe she may be mentally ill.
The leader of Islamist militant Hezbollah has sworn to 'end' the U.S., calling for 'martyr' terror attacks in Jerusalem after Donald Trump's recognition of the city as the Israeli capital last week.
Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary General of the Lebanese militant group, made the impassioned televised speech to thousands of followers, inciting the crowd to chant 'Death to America'.
This was followed by a warning to Lebanonfrom Israel's Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz, who said that if Hezbollah attacked Israel, the country would return the whole country 'back to the Stone Age'.
In his speech this week, translated by the Washington D.C.-based Middle East Media Research Institute, Hezbollah leader Nasrallah appeared to urge followers to carry out terror attacks in Jerusalem.
'It is time that everybody knows that America is not the sponsor of peace in Palestine and the region,' he said in the televised speech
'America is the sponsor of terrorism, of occupation, of Judaization, of deportation, of burning, of destruction and of civil strife.
'America created ISIS and the takfiri [apostate] groups.
He said the only position the Islamic nation can take regarding the United States is 'Death to America', which was followed by a crowd of hundreds brandishing Palestine flags repeatedly chanting the threatening words.
He urged followers to turn Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital into the 'beginning of the end' for the U.S.and Israel 'for all eternity'.
He also called for 'millions of martyrs' to march on Jerusalem, potentially inciting terror attacks.
Israel and Hezbollah fought a war in 2006 and often trade warnings. But in an interview on Wednesday, Intelligence Minister Katz warned that if the organisation resumed a military conflict 'all of Lebanon will be a target.'
'What happened in 2006 would be a picnic compared to what could happen...
'I say Lebanon will return to the stone age.'
