CNN may wish to take into account rebranding itself. Prompt new identify: “The Professional-Biden Miracle Community.”
The suggestion arises as a result of twice this week, the community has damaged out the m-word on behalf of pro-Biden causes.
On Wednesday, we caught New Day co-host John Berman hailing as a “miracle” President Biden’s declare that by Could, there’d be sufficient vaccine obtainable for all American adults. Anybody recall CNN describing as a “miracle” the success of Trump’s Operation Warp Pace, which led to the event of secure and efficient coronavirus vaccines lengthy earlier than the “consultants” thought that might be attainable? Neither do I. And but that achievement far out-miracles the present ramping up of manufacturing.
As we speak, it was CNN political commentator David Gregory’s flip, calling it a “miracle” that regardless of the pandemic, “this was,” as Alisyn Camerota had simply said, “the most secure and most safe election in our historical past.” Gregory added that there was “no proof of irregularities or fraud.”
No proof, actually? It is true that the presidential election outcomes haven’t been overturned in any state, and that William Barr, the legal professional normal appointed by President Trump, discovered no proof of “widespread” fraud. However no fraud or irregularities in any respect? in her New York Publish column, Miranda Devine offered a very good abstract of a report on irregularities that had been propared by Trump commerce adviser Peter Navarro. Along with citing particular cases of fraud, Devine famous:
The place the report is most compelling is in its thesis that, beneath cowl of the pandemic, Democrats and allied voting-rights activist organizations managed to get voter ID necessities relaxed to such an extent that widespread poll harvesting or outright fraud was in a position to happen with out detection.
For instance, the report cites 130,000 questionable votes in Wisconsin on account of relaxed voter ID necessities for “indefinitely confined” voters who mentioned they had been unable to get to the polls in individual. These voters had been seen “attending weddings, driving their bikes, happening trip and in any other case [being] something however confined.” But they evaded the rigorous ID checks required for in-person voting.
The variety of “indefinitely confined” voters in Wisconsin virtually tripled from 2019 to 2020, when 200,000 folks took benefit of relaxed voter ID legal guidelines as a result of pandemic.
“This 130,000-vote increment of latest indefinitely confined voters is greater than 5 occasions the Biden victory margin in Wisconsin.”
Throughout battleground states, relaxed ID necessities for mail-in and absentee ballots “disproportionately benefited [Biden] as a result of President Trump had a a lot increased proportion of in-person voters.”
The report additionally cites indications of poll harvesting — as an illustration, 25,000 ballots requested from nursing house residents in Pennsylvania on the identical time.
In Nevada, it claims Native Individuals had been “bribed” to vote by Biden operatives with Visa present playing cards, jewellery and different swag.
Maybe the most important “inform” that one thing was amiss was the obstruction of Republican ballot watchers in Georgia, Michigan and Pennsylvania, the place they declare they had been denied entry to ballot-counting facilities or “directed to face at unreasonably prolonged distances from poll counters.”
Observe: in the course of the section, Camerota additionally learn at size from a twitter assertion by Michelle Obama in assist of a H.R. 1, a invoice handed by the Home that supposedly promotes voting rights however in actual fact opens the door to fraud by mandating, amongst different issues, on-line and identical day registration.
So, what Biden “miracle” will CNN hail subsequent? For the reply, keep tuned to the Professional-Biden Miracle Community: you should not have to attend lengthy!
CNN’s David Gregory hailing as a miracle that the 2020 election was supposedly “the most secure and most safe election in our historical past” was sponsored partially by Land Rover, Publishers Clearing House,Tempur-Pedic, and Liberty Mutual.

ALISYN CAMEROTA: Republicans, as , David, in I believe one thing like 40-plus state homes across the nation, are actually centered on what they name election safety, what Democrats name voting rights restrictions. And, I imply, typically, Republicans have even admitted they’re trying to type of sport how they’ll win once more. And so they should put a few of these provisions in, they consider.
. . .
I imply, as we all know, from the folks in cost, Republicans, even, this was the most secure, most safe election in our historical past that we all know of, or our latest historical past. And so the concept all these measures are being fought for. How are we to interpret that?
DAVID GREGORY: Effectively, I believe it is such an necessary level. And simply to underline what you mentioned. This was such a secure and safe election. It was a miracle we did it in a pandemic. And there was no proof of irregularities or fraud.
