Democrats have been thwarted in their attempts to stop the audit of ballots in Arizona’s largest county. Now they are working overtime to discredit the effort to verify that the count was on the up and up.
Dems flooded Maricopa County with armies of legal operatives, and most recently pushed to get Joe Biden’s highly partisan Justice Department to intervene. Nonetheless, the process is ongoing, and for some peculiar reason this has Democrats and their media partners very, very worried.
On Sunday, CNN trotted out Cindy McCain, the widow of the deceased Senator John McCain. He was an unrepentant warmonger and virulent Trump hater right up until the day that he died from brain cancer in 2018.
Cindy McCain calls the Arizona audit of 2020 election ballots in Maricopa County "ludicrous."

Mrs. McCain was hosted by CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State Of The Union” where she decried the efforts for election transparency as “ludicrous”. She opined that it is time for Trump supporters to shut up and fall into line behind Biden.
According to McCain, “Listen, this whole thing is ludicrous, quite frankly. It’s ludicrous. And this also comes from a state party in Arizona that refused to be audited themselves on votes that were cast within their own party communications. The election is over. Biden won.”
McCain continued, “I know many of them don’t like the outcome, but, you know, elections have consequences. And so … this does not surprise me, you know, that things are just aloof and crazy out there right now with regards to the election.”
Senator McCain has been venerated for decades in the swamp that is Washington. His funeral was an opportunity for a weeklong “bipartisan” show of strength by the establishment against former President Donald J. Trump, who turned the memorial service into a political event.
With McCain himself now having gone to his great reward, Mrs. McCain remains an influential figure. With the likes of Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and more recently George W. Bush, she is presented with this group as one who is able to transcend bipartisan differences.
And there is nothing that is as bipartisan today as ending the Maricopa County audit.
Prior to the push to discredit the Arizona recount hitting the Sunday morning “news” shows, it was being assailed by DNC-Deep State mouthpieces like Rachel Maddow. Shows like hers often serve as the launching pads for the week’s official propaganda talking points.
MSNBC’s reigning conspiracy queen has been completely hysterical since the recount began, and this week she took to the airwaves to rave about what she claims will be another “end of democracy.”

According to Maddow, “It is so stupid. And, you know, if they can do it, and do it right, it’s also kind of the end of democracy. At least, the end of our democracy to the extent that our democracy is built on the principle of two major parties competing with governing visions that are fought out in contests where the people vote with ballots, they are tallied in a technocratically sound way, we accept the results, the loser lives to fight another day, and the winner gets to govern,” she said.
When it comes down to it, the Democrats and their allies act so certain that Biden’s victory was completely legitimate and that there was no hanky-panky. One would think that they would welcome such an audit to put to rest any lingering questions.
The fact that they are fighting it this fiercely only provides the skeptics with more reason to believe that they are deliberately hiding something.
