A massive global cyberattack is underway, making the services Reddit, Tumblr, Netflix, Twitter, Bit.ly among others completely or partially inaccessible in the United States as of 12:57pm local time.
C.E. Dyer writes that at the third and final presidential debate on Wednesday night, Donald Trump said that he would decide at the time whether or not he would concede the results of the election. The mainstream media jumped on Trump’s commonsense answer, but history proves them to be hypocrites once again.
In the 2000 presidential election between Al Gore and George W. Bush, Gore and the left asserted that Bush stole the election. Gore refused to concede the election, saying:
The effort that I have underway is simply to make sure that all of the votes are counted, and when the issues that are now being considered in the Florida Supreme Court are decided, that will be an important point. But I don’t want to speculate what the court will do.
Gore also said, “I am very troubled by a lot of the stories that have been reported,” in reference to his belief that blacks were being discouraged from voting.” He added, “Whenever you have allegations of those kind, that is a matter the entire country ought to take seriously.”
During a speech in Nigeria on Aug. 12, 2009, Clinton was still complaining about the results of the 2000 election and even claimed that former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida had something to do with fraud that was never proven after rigorous investigations. Sounds like quite the conspiracy theory; perhaps a vast left wing conspiracy…
Anyway, from Clinton’s speech:
“Now, our democracy is still evolving,” Clinton said. “We had all kinds of problems in some of our past elections, as you might remember. In 2000, our presidential election came down to one state where the brother of the man running for president was the governor of the state, so I mean, we have our problems too. But we have been moving to try to remedy those problems as we see them.”
According to Clinton and the left, Trump should concede the results of the election even though she — years after investigations commenced and the Supreme Court upheld the results of the election — was still going around the world and refusing to concede the results…
We have proof of how bad voter fraud has gotten and we know, thanks to WikiLeaks and Project Veritas, the lengths to which the left has gone to rig elections. Trump’s answer was an intelligent and legitimate response.
It would be absolutely absurd for Trump to sound the alarm about voter fraud and rigged elections but then turn around and say, “meh, I’ll just roll over and accept it.”
Establishment Republican globalists — because globalists are one in the same and just use the two-party system to obfuscate from the fact that they’re all in on it — have rolled over and taken it for too long. That’s part of the problem.
If Trump and others believe that we have a serious problem with voter fraud and rigged elections — which we do — then there’s no way he should close the door on the possibility of fighting back once the election is over.
Before everyone starts clutching their pearls, he’s clearly talking about using legal means to fight back, just like Gore did in 2000. That’s what you should do if you suspect fraud. You shouldn’t just roll over and take it.
Republicans have rolled over and taken it for years and given away our country in the process. If we don’t fight now, especially if Clinton wins and it can be proven that fraud put her there, that will give our country away for good.
That’s what establishment Republicans want, and they have hidden behind the myth of “taking the high road” to get the American people to shut up and take it for too long. Trump isn’t an establishment Republican — and thank God for that.

A majority of Republican voters say Republican nominee Donald Trump better represents their views than Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI).
As Ryan and Trump have traded jabs throughout the 2016 election, a recent Bloomberg Politics poll asked Republican voters, “Which person’s view better matches your own view of what the Republican Party should stand for?”
The results show that 51 percent of Republican voters say Trump better represents the view of their party than does Ryan, who received 33 percent in the poll.

The poll, which was conducted Oct. 14 through Oct. 17, questioned 404 likely voters that identify as Republican — or leaning Republican — and has a plus or minus 4.9 percent margin of error.
Bloomberg Politics also asked GOP voters who they would like to be the face of the Republican Party if Hillary Clinton wins the 2016 election.
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence — Trump’s running mate — ranked number one with 27 percent. Trump came in second with 24 percent and Paul Ryan came in fourth behind Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) with 15 percent.
