Electronic Voting, Voter Fraud, and Other Election Day Issues

People who can't figure out how to mark a paper ballot (or use a punch card ballot) really shouldn't be voting.  How hard could it be?  Even if English isn't your native language, it shouldn't be a great challenge to recognize your favorite candidate's name (or the party name) on a ballot.
This material came from akdart.com

As we've seen in places like Louisiana and Chicago and Florida, when there's a close contest and the Democrat is losing, it is likely someone will "find" a bunch of "lost" ballots in a warehouse somewhere that are just what the losing candidate needs to pull into the lead.  If you think such shenanigans are a problem now, just wait until the ballots don't even exist, and all it takes is the manipulation of a few bytes in a computer to change the outcome of an election.  Who will be able to say with any certainty that a fair election took place?  Unfortunately, when that day comes, I predict that it will result in widespread voter apathy rather than a revolt.  And if there is a massive public outcry, it could be that the "solution" will be a National ID Card.
...or a barcode on your forehead.

Please note that some of the material on this page relates to voting problems in general, not just to electronic voting, but these are problems which will not be solved (as some claim) by switching over to electronic ballots.

Rebecca Mercuri wrote her PhD thesis on the subject of electronic voting, and it is well worth reading."  She says,

"I am adamantly opposed to the use of fully electronic or Internet-based systems for use in anonymous balloting and vote tabulation applications.  The reasons for my opposition are manyfold, and are expressed in my writings as well as those of other well-respected computer security experts.  At the present time, it is my strong recommendation that all election officials REFRAIN from procuring ANY system that does not provide an indisputable paper ballot."

The Editor says...
Voting by mail, voter impersonation, dead voters, illegal alien voters, ballot harvesting, voter ID, and duplicate voting, are all separate issues.  In counties that use electronic voting booths at numerous polling places, the biggest problem is that the vote tally at the end of the day is stored on a removable (USB) memory card, which can then be taken someplace by a corrupt official to be altered.  Obviously voting machines need to have tamper-proof voting machine memory cards.  Voting machines in Dallas County and many other places currently use a USB thumb drive to store the results of a day's voting.  This device can be taken by a corrupt election judge to a secret location to be edited (on anybody's computer!) and altered before turning it in to the central counting room.  Allow me to propose a solution:  [#1] The memory device should not use a standard connector that everybody's computer has.  Certainly not USB, RS-232, Firewire, or Thunderbolt.  [#2] When Election Day's voting is finished, and the voting machine is told to finalize the results, the machine should blow a fuse — inside the removable memory device — which will turn it into a read-only memory -- except for a memory partition big enough to hold the data for point #3, which is next.  At the same time, it should make a copy of the day's results in a separate memory  unit  partition within the same memory card, accessible only through some elaborate means known only to a few.  In addition, the voting machine itself should make a copy of the final results, without telling anyone.  [#3]  Thereafter, the removable memory device should record the MAC address of every computer that reads the memory card or attempts to write to it, along with a hash code (written obscurely somewhere) to make alterations impossible.  [#4] Attempts to write to the device after the fuse is blown (in step 2) should be fruitless, but recorded anyway.  [#4A] Alternatively, let the hacker read an write at will, generating evidence against himself, while leaving the secret copies unchanged.  [#5] It is not necessary to tell the poll workers how the system works — only that there are security features included to prevent tampering with the data.  The number of people who know how it all works should be tightly limited; however, sooner or later some of the details will leak out.  By that time, an even better system can be implemented.  If the technical details can be kept secret for two or three election cycles, that would probably be enough to catch several corrupt officials and make their lives difficult from that day forward.

American Democracy Is in Extremis.  The 900-pound gorilla lurking in every voting place in America as we enter the last month before the midterm elections is the fact that the national political media are continuing to repeat, almost in unison, that any possible dispute over the legitimacy and authenticity of the 2020 presidential election result has been resolved.  The evidence for this claim has been the failure of the many actions undertaken by Rudolph Giuliani on behalf of then President Donald Trump, and Sidney Powell acting independently but in the same interest, which made exaggerated claims and sought unrealistic remedies from the courts.  The national political media were approximately 95 percent hostile to Trump according to independent media surveys by Pew Research and the Harvard Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy.  They reckoned that by debunking the Giuliani-Powell efforts, they would discredit all concerns about the authenticity of the election result.  There were 19 actions challenging the constitutionality of the voting and vote counting changes, supposedly to facilitate voting in the pandemic, particularly in the swing states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.  Most important was the action of the attorney general of Texas against those states, and he was joined in his complaint by 18 other state attorneys general, directly to the U.S. Supreme Court as the forum for inter-state lawsuits.  This action alleged violation of the constitutional obligation of all states to ensure through their state legislatures, and not the executive or judiciary in those states, that presidential elections are fairly conducted within their jurisdictions.  None of these cases was heard on its merits, a fact which received almost no publicity.  Process objections were raised:  lateness, wrong courts — everything was shuffled off until the clock ran out.

How Much Longer for COVID Scare Tactics?  [Scroll down]  For the Democrats, COVID has always been about political control, a means to an electoral end, a method to remove President Trump by any way possible.  Transmissibility and the requirement for social distancing gave rise to the oh-so-essential need for mail-in balloting for the 2020 presidential election.  That led to astonishing — and quite intentional — voter fraud, including:
  •   Numerous counties where the voter participation rate somehow exceeded 100% of registered voters
  •   Late-night ballot discoveries where thousands of Biden votes (and virtually no Trump votes) were miraculously added to the totals
  •   Documented — but unacted upon — instances of duplicate ballots and mail-in ballots without verified signatures
  •   Unconstitutional voting rule changes in many states, including allowing mail-in and absentee ballots to come in and be counted several days after Election Day
None of this has been disputed or disproved by the Democrats or the liberal media. It's either simply been ignored, dishonestly dismissed, or they cite the blatherings of a random never-Trump Republican as "proof" that the election was on the up-and-up.  Unfortunately and undeniably, the Democrats got away with it.  They desperately want to keep this system in place and they see COVID as their ticket to do so.

Gen. Flynn Exclusive: 10 Indisputable Facts on the 2020 Election That Argue for Audits.  The one seminal event that continues to fester like a boil on the American psyche is this past Nov. 3, 2020, presidential election.  Why does it continue to fester?  It festers because people of all stripes and backgrounds believe there were elements of election fraud, misrepresentations of the truth, dishonesty due to lawfare and, in certain cases, severe obstruction by politicians at all levels of government.  In the days following the presidential election, there were vast claims of a "conspiracy theory" that the election was somehow stolen in the middle of the night.  In fact, many people believe the "theft" actually occurred during the days prior and subsequent to Election Day.  According to some accounts, the theft occurred as a result of machine configurations and settings, misappropriated and fraudulent mail-in ballots, false or fake paper used for ballots, multiple scans of the same ballot, ballots in excess of the number of registered voters and much more.  The claims of fraud in this election seemed never-ending.  These "conspiracy theory" claims continue to be challenged and debated across the United States without any serious examination of the facts surrounding the election itself. [...] What I want to offer for both believers and non-believers are some facts.  These facts and the data behind them come from research and analysis of information gathered directly from federal, state and county websites.  These facts compare past elections to November 2020, and all that is required to understand them is simple common sense.  I will offer some analysis and thoughts at the end, but as we continue to move forward in our country, we the people need to be fact-driven and knowledgeable about what occurred.

What if We Find The Fire From the Smoke of Election Fraud?  As much damage as Covid did — and far worse, the "lockdowns" it was used to inflict — that's nothing compared to the damage another "conspiracy" has done and will do.  That, of course, is the "thoroughly debunked" notion that the election of 2020 was stolen, and that Joe Biden is in the Oval Office today because of election fraud.  But of course that's just some tin hat conspiracy theory.  We've been told that "There's no evidence of election fraud" and Trump "Lost Nearly 60 Election Fights In Court."  The latter of course is fiction.  Given that we heard similar things for the last year about the origins of Covid, the question is, what happens when proof unequivocally demonstrates that the election was indeed stolen?  The smoke for that conclusion has been around since the wee hours of November 4th.  The stopped counting in key states on election night.  Mark Zuckerberg's wholesale purchase of the voting apparatus in key states and counties.  The unconstitutional changes to voting laws that crisscrossed the country — many empowered by the politicization of Covid.  And then of course there is TIME magazine piece that laid out in black and white the "inside story of the conspiracy to save the 2020 election", chronicling widespread coordination of everyone from the Democrat party, Silicon Valley, BLM, unions, the Chamber of Commerce and various other players to get rid of Donald Trump.

The Most Important Question About the 2020 Election.  The anomalies:  In 132 years, no president has received more votes in his run for reelection and lost.  Yet Donald Trump received 10 million more votes in 2020 than in 2016 — and lost.  Trump won 18 of the 19 counties both Democrats and Republicans regard as the "bellwether" counties that virtually always go with the outcome of presidential elections.  Yet he lost.  He won four bellwether states — Florida, Ohio, Iowa and North Carolina.  Yet he lost.  Republicans held onto all the House seats they were defending and gained another 13 seats.  Yet, Trump lost.  Add the following to the anomalies:  Unprecedented efforts were made in some states to change election laws.  Mostly Democratic states sent out tens of millions of ballots or applications for absentee ballots to people who never requested them.  Voting began in some states six weeks before Election Day.  People have submitted sworn affidavits at great personal cost and with possible perjury charges that they witnessed ballot tampering on election night.  But all these things would matter little if Democrats involved in ballot-counting felt morally compelled to count votes honestly.

Next Step in Democracy's Destruction?  Enduring Election Fraud.  Well in advance of the election, the Democratic Party hierarchy and their allies calculated that even with the support of media outlets that function as the propaganda arm of the left, even with Trump's unpopularity amongst segments of the population and even with the deliberate destruction of the economy on the pretext that it was necessary to fight COVID-19, they could not defeat Donald Trump.  His supporters were highly enthusiastic.  Joe Biden's were lukewarm at best.  It was necessary then to do two things.  First, it needed to made possible for even those tepid Biden supporters, those who would never get off the couch to go to their polling place, to vote from the comfort of their living rooms by doing nothing more than licking a stamp.  That meant the massive implementation of no-excuse mail-in voting.  Second, since even then it was likely Biden would fall far short, the door needed to be opened to electoral fraud on a massive scale.  They needed to gut the system of all checks that were in place to determine the validity of ballots received in the mail.  So, while Trump's supporters and the GOP apparatus slumbered, the Democratic Party and its allies went out and made this happen.

Some Hard Truths We Face as Patriotic Americans as We Near January 6th:  Americans have absorbed the truth that the institutions long depended upon for redress are compromised.  For years we had always suspected this, but in the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election this has been confirmed with much dismay and sadness. [...] Here are 25 hard truths Americans can no longer rationalize away:
  [#1]    A presidential election was stolen from President Donald J. Trump in the most brazen and in your face way possible.
  [#2]    The government elites in all three branches, and in both parties, appear to be in on or complicit in the steal either by omission or commission.
  [#3]    The strings of our government are being pulled by China and other global interests that have no qualms about tearing down our time-honored values of freedom of speech, freedom of association, and freedom of religion.
  [#4]    The Supreme Court, except for Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito has allowed partisanship, virtue signaling and cowardice to influence the merits of the cases they have deigned to accept or reject.
  [#5]    There is no Democrat and Republican Party, only a UniParty.  Both parties are merely two sides of the same coin, dedicated to selling out the country to China for power and enrichment.
  [#6]    News is not what the corporate media delivers, only leftist/globalist propaganda that rarely speaks ill of China or George Soros. [...]
  [#8]    If Joe Biden is sworn in as president, he will make a mockery of American ideals of honesty, integrity, and fair play. [...]

Farewell to a Dreadful Year.  Against this backdrop we held an unprecedented presidential election.  COVID provided the pretext for the country to adopt a new system of voting.  While it was deemed entirely safe for people to cram into a Wal-Mart, voting in person was deemed to be so unsafe that a new regime of mail-in voting was adopted, at the urging of the Democrats.  Hans von Spakovsky, an election law expert at the Heritage Foundation, previewed all of the potential problems with mail-in voting back in August: mail-in ballots are more vulnerable to being altered, stolen, or forged; they run the risk of being miscarried or not delivered by the postal service; and they run the risk of not being not being postmarked, making it impossible to determine if they were mailed on time.  For the Democrats, of course, these irregularities were a feature, not a bug. [...] It was little wonder that millions of Americans concluded that the election was a farce.

The Ridiculous and Outmoded Way America Holds Elections.  This year, I took up the challenge to "put your money where your mouth is" by becoming a Republican election poll worker in my precinct in Ohio.  Having now worked 17 straight hours on the inside of the election process, checking in and processing voters, as well as being one of the two persons responsible for delivering my precincts votes to the local Board of Elections, one irrefutable fact emerges from that experience:  the way in which we hold our national elections is ridiculous and inexcusable.  This is the untold story of the 2020 elections and a question everyone needs to ask. [...]

Is Voter Fraud Real?  What is the greatest threat to free and fair elections in America?  Here's a hint:  it's not Russia, or any other foreign power.  It's not a person, either.  It's something much more subtle, and much more dangerous.  [Video clip]

Voting against mob rule.  Most of the Founders were scholarly, erudite men.  Our founders were not only writers but readers of the great teachers of bygone eras.  Not only did they search the Bible, but the classic works of teachers and students of Grecian and Roman governmental innovation.
  •   Nowhere in the Bible is authorization for man to enjoy the right to govern himself through majority rule.
  •   The most infamous vote for justice (or injustice) was in the ballot to save Barabbas over saving God himself.
  •   The execution of Christ is one of history's most significant examples of "mob rule."
  •   When humanity received the Ten Commandments, there was no vote on its legitimacy
As they were writing the Constitution and its Amendments, the writings of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle were fresh in the founder's minds.  In reading their work, no Constitutional amendments uses the phrase "right to vote."  Not in the original text nor the Bill of Rights.

The Plan to "Make America, American Again".  California Dems made sure the people of Mexico and other foreign countries understood the borders were open, no one would ever be sent back, and Democrats would give them every form of welfare for free.  Then they gave illegals drivers licenses.  They registered illegals automatically at DMV.  They made sure there was no Voter ID at the polls.  Recognize the plan?  Gavin Newsom gave it away.  This is now the national plan for Democrats.  Make the whole country into California.

Cloward-Piven Strategy.  [Scroll down]  All three of these organizations — ACORN, Project Vote and Human SERVE — set to work lobbying energetically for the so-called Motor-Voter law, which President Bill Clinton ultimately signed in 1993. At the White House signing ceremony for this bill, both Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven were in attendance.  The new law eliminated many controls on voter fraud, making it easy for voters to register but difficult to determine the validity of new registrations.  Under the new law, states were required to provide opportunities for voter registration to any person who showed up at a government office to renew a driver's license or to apply for welfare or unemployment benefits.  "Examiners were under orders not to ask anyone for identification or proof of citizenship," notes Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund in his book, Stealing Elections.  "States had to permit mailing voter registrations, which allowed anyone to register without any personal contact with a registrar or election officials.  Finally, states were limited in pruning 'deadwood' — people who had died, moved, or been convicted of crimes — from their rolls.

Five Truths About Elections.  [#2] Elections are the fulcrum on which our unique system of government balances, therefore our elections are crucial.  They are also under attack.  Whereas the Russians don't seem to have been very effective, if, in fact, they were tinkering with our presidential choices, forces inside America are working hard to make elections pointless.  The integrity of the voting process itself must be protected.  We learned that in the hanging-chad election.  Without assurance that our votes are not being canceled out by infected voting machines, or dead, illegal, or felonious voters, we lose our ability to choose our future.  Without the enforcement of election laws, we make a mockery of the whole system.

Voter fraud exists — Even though many in the media claim it doesn't.  For example, to improve the accuracy of Georgia's records, state legislators last year required that information on a voter registration application match a "driver's license, state ID card or Social Security record." Inconsistencies can cause a voter's registration to be flagged as "pending" while the discrepancy is investigated.  Brian Kemp, the GOP candidate for governor and current secretary of state in Georgia, is being accused of "voter suppression" because of this law.  But a "pending" status does not prevent anyone from voting as long as he or she has a government ID that substantially matches the registration application.  In any event, every voter can cast a provisional ballot that will be counted once the registration information is verified.  As the secretary of state told radio host Erick Erickson, there are 75,000 pending voters among a record total of 7 million registered in the state.  Of these, 9,224 are minors under 18; 2,935 used a fake address; 3,393 are not citizens, and 5,842 were already registered.  Of the remaining applications, 75 percent submitted erroneous Social Security information.  Almost a quarter of those "sloppy forms" came from a registration effort by the New Georgia Project, a group founded in 2014 by Stacey Abrams, the Democratic nominee for governor.

Voter Fraud Is Not a Myth.  Democrats keep claiming that voter fraud is a myth.  But voter fraud has mattered in plenty of American elections.  Take Lyndon Johnson's election to the U.S. Senate in 1948, when LBJ won by manufacturing enough fake votes to turn a 20,000-vote deficit into an 87-vote win.  Others point to voter fraud in Illinois and Texas during the 1960 presidential election; indeed, we may never know whether Kennedy actually "won."  Chicago was infamous for counting the votes of dead people.  In 1982, U.S. Attorney Daniel Webb found that at least 100,000 fraudulent votes were cast.  In 1994, Democrats obtained control of the Pennsylvania state Senate through large-scale voter fraud using absentee ballots.  In 2008, illegal voting made a decisive difference in a U.S. Senate race, giving Al Franken a seat from Minnesota — one could argue that Franken's vote allowed Obamacare to get through the Senate.  Make no mistake:  Voter fraud is still a problem — even in the 2016 election cycle.  Take these cases discovered during just the last month and a half: [...]

What Leftists Stand For
  [#16]   They believe that illegals should be counted along with Americans when apportioning House seats.
  [#17]   They can't win elections, so they import immigrants and illegal aliens who will vote for them.
  [#18]   They want to give convicted child-molesters, murderers, rapists, and major drug-dealers the right to vote.
  [#19]   They work hard to keep the folks in the military from voting.
  [#20]   They support policies that increase people's dependence on government in order to get more votes, even though that subjects people to miserable lives.

The Clinton Record.  [Scroll down]  Look at the evidence and decide for yourself:
  •   A 2012 report by the Pew Center on the States found that 24 million voter registrations — one-eighth of all registrations nationwide — were either invalid or inaccurate, including more than 1.8 million dead people who were still registered.
  •   A 2014 study found that two years earlier, some 155,692 registered voters in North Carolina alone had first and last names, birth dates, and final-four Social Security Number digits that matched those of voters who were registered in other states.
  •   The same study also found that 35,570 people who had actually voted in North Carolina, had first names, last names, and birth dates that matched those of voters who had cast ballots in other states.
  •   In 2008, Democrat Al Franken won a highly controversial U.S. Senate race in Minnesota by just 312 votes.  It was later discovered that 1,099 felons — all legally ineligible to vote — had cast ballots in the election, almost exclusively for Franken.
  •   A 2006 study found that 77,000 dead people were listed on New York's statewide database of registered voters, and that as many as 2,600 of them had somehow managed to cast ballots from the grave.
  •   In Milwaukee in 2004, approximately 5,300 more ballots were cast, than voters who were recorded as having shown up at the polls.
  •   In 2008, election officials nationwide had to discard at least 400,000 bogus voter registrations submitted by ACORN, the now-defunct criminal operation masquerading as a "community organization."
  •   In 2011, a Colorado study found that of the nearly 12,000 non-citizens who were illegally registered to vote in that state, about 5,000 had taken part in the 2010 general election.
  •   In ten Colorado counties in 2012, voter registrations outnumbered the total voting-age population by between 4% and 40%.
The foregoing examples represent only the barest tip of a colossal election-fraud iceberg.

Timely news and commentary:

Our Institutions Have Betrayed Our Trust.  Unless we are able to replace our greedy and compromised elected officials by fighting back against our corrupt electoral process, we will forever be slaves, subject to the lies and intimidation of those currently in charge and forced to live with the rampant crime and ruined economy of a nation in decline with undefended borders.  It all comes down to restoring honest and fair elections, starting with exposing state voting rolls that are currently flooded with inaccurate data rendering results invalid.  Local and state Board of Election officials who sign off on election certifications are guilty of serious federal and state crimes if they fail to follow laws scrupulously.  Brave citizens in over 25 states have come forward to investigate and expose the blatant disregard for basic election procedures.  We must support their efforts and demand our state legislators take back control of election procedures from governors, judges and bureaucrats.

Why I Still Doubt the 2020 Election.  When I said in a TV interview that I didn't know who won the 2020 presidential election, I was expressing a view similar to that held by a very large cohort of Americans.  That didn't stop two left-leaning news websites from targeting me last year with investigative stories.  Why?  Perhaps they were trying to get me hauled up before the House of Representatives Jan. 6 committee.  In American history there have been several contested presidential elections, including in 1960 and 2000.  Some people doubted the certified results.  But the victors either debated the doubters or ignored them.  I don't know of any election after which the victors excommunicated doubters as secular heretics — "election deniers." [...] I suspect that some of the election affirmers have their own secret doubts.  Secret doubts may explain why the establishment media so loudly denied any serious irregularities only hours after the election, before anyone could have conducted a serious investigation.  Secret doubts may explain the haste to cite the failure of President Donald Trump's courtroom strategy as "evidence" of the absence of problems — although nearly all his lawsuits were dismissed on procedural grounds, not on the merits.

2020 Election Results Explained By Biden "Spikes".  Physicist John Droz joins ITN to discuss his team's incredible analysis of the 2020 presidential election results.  [Video clip]

More than 43,000 people went to the polls for a Louisiana election.  A candidate won by 1 vote.  In the northwest corner of Louisiana, a candidate for parish sheriff demanded a recount Wednesday after losing by a single vote in an election where more than 43,000 people cast ballots.  The tight race shines a spotlight on Louisiana's recount process and its outdated voting machines, which do not produce an auditable paper trail that experts say is critical to ensuring election results are accurate.  States' recount abilities have proven to be exceedingly important, especially following the 2020 presidential election when multiple battleground states conducted recounts and reviews to confirm President Joe Biden's victory.  "This extraordinarily narrow margin ... absolutely requires a hand recount to protect the integrity of our democratic process, and to ensure we respect the will of the people," John Nickelson, the Republican candidate who trailed by one vote in last week's election for Caddo Parish Sheriff, posted on social media Wednesday.

Lancaster County Voters Seek Answers from Postal Service as Mail-In Ballots Missed Election Deadline Resulting in Disqualification.  Voters in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania are demanding explanations from the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) following the disqualification of over a hundred mail-in ballots.  A substantial delay resulted in ballots, postmarked by the required date, arriving too late to be counted for the past election.  The ballots, all postmarked on October 30th in Harrisburg, sat undelivered for two weeks, missing the 8 p.m. deadline on Election Day, November 7th, LancasterOnline reported.  As a consequence, when they arrived on November 13th, six days too late, election officials had no choice but to reject them.  The exact number of affected ballots remains unconfirmed, though estimates range from 100 to 150.  Angered and frustrated voters reported receiving automated messages on or about November 14th informing them of the rejection due to the ballots not meeting the delivery deadline.

The Editor says...
[#1] Boo hoo.  Maybe you should have reported to the polling place in person on Election Day.  [#2] The postal service is not a ballot box.  The postal service cannot be trusted to deliver important letters in a timely manner, or deliver them at all.  (The popular illustration for this is, "Put $500 in an envelope and mail it to yourself."  Could you be sure you would get the money back?  If you repeat this process once a week, how long would it be until the money was lost, i.e., stolen?)  Postmarks can be forged as easily as ballots can be counterfeited.  Bogus ballots presumably can be inserted into the postal delivery system by those with the audacity to produce phony ballots.  I'm opposed to absentee voting, except for members of the armed services deployed overseas.

Why All the Secrecy and Fallacy?  [Scroll down]  Similarly, there were many videos showing seemingly fraudulent activities while processing and counting the votes during the 2020 presidential election that raised a reasonable doubt in the validity of the election's result.  Also, real-time statistical distributions of numeric data during the vote counting exhibited a considerable number of anomalies that could suggest systemic manipulations of the prescribed counting process.  Yet, rather than thoroughly investigating all the election's "red flags" noticed, recorded, and reported, those advocating the official version claimed, without providing proofs of their claims, that the 2020 presidential election was the safest and most fair and honest in American history and that fraud and cheating — if they did happen — were not "outcome-determinative." [...] If emotionally-loaded fallacious reasoning, threats, and name-calling are the best proofs of the official versions of the events discussed above, then perhaps they are not as correct as the officials and the so-called "mainstream" media insist.

The ridiculousness of signature matching for election integrity.  Signatures have always been used for two purposes: to show our authorization of a transaction, and as a means of identification.  That second function — identification — is fast becoming obsolete, at least with regard to voting.  Prior to the creation of Social Security, there was no national registry of citizens.  Signatures were all that we had and all that we needed for voter identification.  After all, we almost always voted in person, right in our own neighborhoods.  We now have unique ID numbers — courtesy of Social Security and other systems such as driver licensing bureaus and state identification systems.  We no longer need to rely on signatures for identification.  Furthermore, signatures don't work in this era of mail-in ballots.

Judge Makes Massive Absentee Ballot Ruling In Wisconsin.  A Waukesha judge ruled Wednesday that Wisconsin voters cannot cancel an absentee ballot that they have already mailed back just so they can cast a new ballot.  Former Republican Attorney General and Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Brad Schimel granted a permanent injunction "which will contain substantially the same terms" as the injunction he granted in October of 2022.  The suit was launched in September of 2022 by Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections on behalf of voter Nancy Koranic who claimed that the Wisconsin Elections Commission illegally told clerks in August of 2022 that so-called "ballot spoiling" was legal.  Both the Democratic National Committee and Rise, a left-leaning group, intervened on behalf of the state commission.  Schimel ruled that Wisconsin laws contain no language "that would authorize the scheme whereby a clerk spoils the ballot for the elector, at their request and sends out a new blank ballot for a do-over."

Feast Your Eyes On All This Election Fraud!  As I've been saying for some time, the rampant corruption of America's rigged elections is even more comically obvious in 2023 — than it was in 2021 and 2020.  Just look at last week's news from Pennsylvania, where a county official has resigned over the "failures" of the elections he supervised!  It's time to draw the monstrous outline of the rampant corruption of America's elections — and so I've compiled 58 articles on one page for my readers to digest.  The place to begin this story — the tale of how our national security state turned our constitutional republic into a shadow oligarchy — is at the beginning.  That's why I want you to start by reading about a young man who worked at a printing company named Robert J. Urosevich.  The year is 1974.  That's when an otherwise unremarkable salesman had one of history's worst ideas:  could a machine read an election ballot?  Unfortunately, Bob Urosevich would live long enough to find out.

Dem AG Unveils Indictment Against Republican Election Officials Who Pushed For Hand-Counting Ballots.  Arizona's Democratic attorney general announced today that a grand jury has decided to indict two election officials for conspiring to delay the certification of votes in their county over their desire to hand-count all election day and early ballots.  Peggy Judd and Terry Crosby, Republican county supervisors from Cochise County, were indicted by the state of Arizona on Nov. 29 on counts of conspiracy and interference with an election.  Judd and Crosby wanted to hand count ballots in their county, citing their distrust of voting machines, and delayed the certification of their county's election results over those concerns.

Court papers say ex-Virginia election official on trial 'altered election results' in 2020 election.  The former general registrar of Prince William County, Va., allegedly "altered election results" during the 2020 election, according to court documents recently obtained by Just the News.  However, the current general registrar says that his predecessor's alleged conduct didn't impact any election outcomes.  In a county where President Joe Biden received 54% of the vote in the 2020 presidential election to former President Donald Trump's 44%, an election official at the time allegedly "altered election results" in the state's reporting system, leading to three grand jury indictments last year.  In September 2022, former Prince William County general registrar Michele White was indicted by a grand jury on two felony counts alleging corrupt conduct as an election official and making a false statement, and one misdemeanor indictment of willful neglect of duty by an election officer.  White's jury trial is set to begin on Jan. 16, 2024, and go until Jan. 26.  White had abruptly resigned in 2021 without explanation.

Dr. Robert Epstein Launches 'America's Digital Shield' Exposing Big Tech Meddling in 2024 Elections.  Research psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein is launching America's Digital Shield, a website that exposes Big Tech meddling in the 2024 elections through real-time "ephemeral manipulation" that can shift millions of votes.  Epstein announced the release of a "public data dashboard" that shows how Big Tech giants like Google, Bing, and Yahoo are manipulating online content to influence votes in the elections, according to a press release sent to Breitbart News.  The new public dashboard, named America's Digital Shield can be viewed here.  The findings presented by Epstein, a Harvard-trained senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology (AIBRT), raise concerns about the integrity of the democratic process amid Big Tech corporations' ability to wield unparalleled amounts of power with regards to public consumption of online content.

Poll: 56 Percent Of Voters Believe Cheating Is Likely To Happen In 2024 Election.  More than half of American voters expect the highly consequential 2024 presidential election to be marred with cheating and fraud and believe mail-in voting impedes election integrity, according to a recently conducted survey.  "How likely is it that the outcome of the 2024 presidential election will be affected by cheating?" Rasmussen Reports asked 1,029 voters on Nov. 13 to Nov. 15.  Fifty-six percent of respondents believe cheating is likely to affect the election results while 31 percent anticipate election fraud is "very likely" to skew the outcome.  Additionally, the survey found a majority of voters believe mail-in ballots facilitate voter fraud.

The Left Conspires To Keep Election Fraud Quiet.  A Lawrence, Massachusetts voter who had been turned away from the polls on Election Day and told he had already voted found out he was the victim of fraud.  He checked the footage on the video camera outside his front door and saw that a woman had removed mail-in ballots from his mailbox.  He called the police.  It's happening in many places.  On Tuesday, Fight Voter Fraud, Inc., a nonprofit voter rights group, appeared in Connecticut Superior Court to demand the arrest of a woman alleged to have been caught on video committing mail-in ballot fraud in the 2019 Bridgeport Democratic mayoral primary and again in the 2023 primary.  The group, protesting that city officials pretend there's no problem, also called on the Connecticut legislature to appoint a special prosecutor.  A staggering 60% of likely voters nationwide consider election cheating a problem, according to Rasmussen Reports.  Yet the Left denies it's happening.  The Washington Post calls it a "myth" and a "fantasy offense."  Worst of all, the federal government is suppressing the evidence and censoring anyone who complains about election cheating.

Legalizing Ballot Fraud in Pennsylvania.  On November 22, 2023 it was reported that a federal court in Pennsylvania changed the legal requirements for counting mail-in ballots by county boards of elections.  When no-excuse mail-in balloting was permitted in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, we were told that such voting was secure and that safeguards would prohibit fraud.  Doubters and skeptics are forcefully reminded that the 2020 election was the "most secure in history."  Last week's court decision is one more example of the alleged safeguards being eroded.  One year earlier the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that all mail-in ballots must be dated and must be rejected by county boards of election if the date is invalid.  This week's ruling would change that requirement so that undated and misdated mail-in ballots must be counted.  Groups pushing for that change claim that the date on the ballot envelope is trivial.  Those claims are amplified by a compliant media that obscures the issue.

Pennsylvania Voters Reach 'Peak of Mistrust' After Voting Machines Glitch for Second Time.  Pennsylvania voters are doubting the integrity of local elections in the swing county of Northampton after issues with touchscreen voting devices arose on the most recent Election Day.  The glitches were similar to those seen in the county's 2019 judges race.  Election officials are scrambling to ensure trust in the voting system as voters and local leaders alike are sounding the alarm, a Saturday Politico report revealed.  Northampton used Election Systems & Software touchscreen machines for the first time in 2019 and saw a "programming glitch" that caused a significant "undercount" of votes in the local judge's race, the publication reported.  Then, on November 7, 2023, suspicion grew when voters discovered that their printouts meant to confirm their votes on the devices did not match their choices for two down-ballot judges races.

Oliver Stone shocks Bill Maher by telling him he thinks the 2020 election was stolen from Trump.  As usual, Maher brings up the sheep talking points, "But all the lawsuits were dismissed and laughed out of court."  What Bill and many other people with negative IQ don't realize is that the majority of the cases were not dismissed after discovery & evidentiary hearings they were dismissed on procedural grounds (such as lack of standing, jurisdiction, mootness, ripeness, etc).  In other words, the courts failed the Constitution by refusing to hear the election challenges.  Of the cases that were heard on the merits, Republicans and/or Trump prevailed in two-thirds of them.  Since the 2020 election, it's also important to note that many courts have made critical decisions such as the decision from a Wisconsin judge that ruled ballot drop boxes were illegally implemented and used in 2020, the decision from the Georgia Supreme Court that concluded voters had standing to challenge the results of their own elections (duhh).  The fraud in 2020 was rampant and anyone who denies it lacks intelligence.  [Video clip]

Chester County Wipes the Protected Count From Voting Machines.  The Voter Services department in Chester County, Pennsylvania has wiped the "protected counts" off their voting machines, raising questions about their motives.  This unexpected act was revealed to observers while voting machines were undergoing normal "logic and accuracy" testing in preparation for the upcoming November 7, 2023 Municipal Election.  As explained by Karen Barsoum, Chester County Director of Voter Services, the protected count on a voting machine should be the total number of ballots put into the machine over its lifetime, which accumulates up like a car's odometer.  When thinking of a car, you can reset the trip odometer, but should not be able to roll back the lifetime odometer.  Since the protected counts on voting machines are supposed to be "protected," hence the name, why would the county eliminate this history?  Why would county elections officials not want anyone to be able to see on the machine itself how many ballots went into it previously?

Wrongthink to Avoid.  [Scroll down]  On the topic of useful idiots, our partisan, Big Government bum-kissing media tells us the 2020 election was the most secure and above-board election ever.  Never mind that the Democrats unilaterally engineered a million ways to cheat electorally, and that the courts and the feds brazenly refused to investigate any of it.  Disregard that President Trump and other Republicans were comfortably ahead on Election Night, only to suffer mysterious setbacks in the following days or weeks.  Although it had never been easier to cheat electorally than in 2020, our thoroughly despicable media informs us no one cheated!  It was a miracle, an article of faith that you'd better take to heart if you know what's good for you.

Elections are rigged in Idaho.  Now, we're not talking about hordes of dead people being conscripted to vote in the most recent elections, or vote-by-mail programs wherein certain ballots never arrive, or ballots that favor a particular candidate show up at the last minute.  We're talking about a system that is designed to favor leftist candidates in local odd-year elections.  Conservatives didn't do well in the Nov. 7 general election because the system is rigged against them.  It's a system that was designed by the state Legislature and maintained through the expansion of government.  Idaho Freedom Foundation President Wayne Hoffman looked over the latest election results and provides clarity about why Tuesday's elections predictably favored leftist candidates and how the system could be set up to be more fair in the future.  There's also a government spending angle that deserves consideration as well.

The Errors, The Lie, and The Cover-Up in Georgia's 2020 Election — Part I.  After the 2020 Election a Risk Limiting Audit (RLA) was carried out by Georgia's Secretary of State's (SOS's) Office.  The results of this exercise confirmed the 2020 Election results.  However, thanks to the efforts of Georgian Joseph Rossi, 36 errors were found in the Fulton County data in the RLA report posted on the SOS website.  Rossi doggedly went after those in authority in the state to review his data.  He was turned down and ignored numerous times.  But eventually after a series of events, Rossi was able to get these errors in front of members of Governor Kemp's office.  As a result of Rossi's work, the Georgia State Elections Board (SEB) initiated an investigation into the Fulton County data from the RLA report.  This investigation was labeled SEB2021-181.  Eventually the SEB identified violations and errors in the recounts of the 2020 Election in Fulton County.

Obama-Appointed Judge Rules in Favor of Those Challenging Voting Machines.  Not only will a lawsuit against the state of Georgia regarding its election security measures go forward, but a judge said in her ruling that the "evidence does not suggest that the Plaintiffs are conspiracy theorists of any variety."  The only way to make that any better would be if this judge were appointed by, say, former President Barack Obama.  And lo and behold, she was!  In a 135-page ruling issued Nov. 10, U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg of the Northern District of Georgia allowed a lawsuit from the Coalition for Good Governance to go forward, noting in her decision that the issue might be better decided outside of courtrooms.

6 Bizarre Examples of How Voter Registration Fraud Happens.  [#5]  In 2021, police reported catching Zul Mirza Mohamed — a candidate for mayor of Carrollton, Texas — in the act of stuffing envelopes with Dallas County absentee ballot applications.  But his activities allegedly ran even deeper.  Investigators determined the candidate forged at least 84 voter registration forms.  The Texas Attorney General's Office charged him with 84 counts of mail ballot fraud.

Argentina managed to count all 30 million of its ballots by midnight.  One thing Argentina did right during its election Sunday which saw the election of Javier Milei to the presidency was to get all its ballots counted by midnight.  That's the sort of thing we don't see in the U.S. anymore, now that election night has become election month, raising very valid suspicions among voters about fraud. [...] Long and extended counting periods are open doors to electoral fraud.  That's true whether there is fraud or not, because the extended time window gives certain observers time to figure out how many more ballots are needed for their party or candidate to win the race, and then produce those ballots to ensure a just-over-the-line victory.  In forensic accounting, as one commentator noted, when fraud is sought, one indicator of it is that the accounting system has been made as messy, complicated, and unintelligible as possible.  That's how investigators know there's likely to be something hidden to enable and conceal fraud.  Sound like any elections you know?

Mail ballot security is under nationwide assault.  The Left loves to tout universal mail voting.  Liberal enclaves like California, Hawaii, and Oregon have implemented it, while activists push aggressively to impose mail-in voting on Americans.  But even as they push it, despite repeated instances of fraud, the Left simultaneously attacks any efforts to make vulnerable mail voting more secure.  Indeed, the Left holds outright disdain for even minimal safeguards for mail ballots.  Right now, the Left's nationwide assault on election security is playing out primarily in the courts.  Any obligation to provide proof that the person returning the ballot is the correct person will be challenged.  They are fighting common sense laws in Texas, Georgia, Wisconsin, Arizona, Michigan, and countless other states.  On Friday, the most recent battle played out in the Kansas Supreme Court.  There, Marc Elias, the Left's primary litigator/tweeter, and his team fought to eliminate two utterly routine mail ballot security measures passed by the Kansas Legislature.

Ranked-Choice Voting Advocates Are Forced To Lie About 'Fairness' To Get Voters On Board.  States and localities are finding out in real-time how terrible ranked-choice voting (RCV) is for their respective elections.  From Alaska to Virginia, the leftist-backed election system gaining traction throughout the country is leading to undesirable election outcomes and confusion among voters.  Under RCV, often dubbed "rigged-choice voting" by its critics, voters rank candidates in order of preference.  If no candidate receives more than 50 percent of first-choice votes in the first round of voting, the last-place finisher is eliminated, and his votes are reallocated to the voter's second-choice candidate.  Despite the many failures associated with its use, RCV proponents are searching for ways to deceive voters into adopting the system for their local and state elections across the nation.  A polling memo obtained by The Federalist shows exactly how they intend to do it.

Court: Unless Congress Clears Up The Voting Rights Act, Only The AG Can Enforce Section 2.  Afederal appellate court upheld a lower court's decision dismissing an NAACP challenge to Alabama's 2021 redistricting plan on Monday, holding that the advocacy group could not sue under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act (VRA).  Rather, according to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, only the U.S. attorney general could maintain a lawsuit under that section of the VRA.  The decision left Democrats and the left-wing press deriding the decision as rolling back "increased minority power and representation in American politics," while Republicans and conservative media outlets praised the decision as protecting election-integrity efforts.  In reality, though, the opinion concerned solely a question of statutory interpretation and the role of the courts in creating claims omitted by Congress.

The Voting Machines Need to Go.  The voting machines America is currently using need to go.  They breed mistrust, and there's a reason for that:  They are not trustworthy.  They are also inherently undemocratic.  No, I'm not talking about 2020 — well, not as such.  I'm talking about all the past elections since we started using these machines, as well as all the future ones until we come to our senses.  Let's do the second problem first.  Here's a question that pretty much answers itself:  Can a system be democratic if the people are not permitted to know how their votes are counted?  It's not a democratic system unless the people have freedom to vote and have some understanding of how their votes are counted.  So why are we using machines that have secret coding to count the votes?  That's one reason why the voting machines need to go:  Their coding is kept secret.  Get rid of those machines, and replace them with paper and pen, or with machines that use open-source software.

Santa Ana, California, May Give Voting Rights to Illegal Aliens.  Voters in Santa Ana, California, a deep-blue city in Orange County, will soon decide whether or not to give local voting rights to potentially tens of thousands of foreign nationals, including illegal aliens.  Next year, during the November 5 election, voters in Santa Ana will be asked whether or not they want to approve giving the right to vote in municipal elections to foreign nationals, including illegal aliens, which would then go into effect by 2028.

Legitimacy.  In the era of great pretending this letter ranks at the top of the 2023 hubris scale.  Having attained her position using ballot manipulation and collection, the fraudulently installed AG in Arizona, Attorney General Kris Mayes, is threatening to arrest anyone who does a hand recount of ballots in Mohave County.

How Joe Biden Gets 81 Million Votes.  In the video below, Dan Bongino talks about one of the ways Democrats win elections illicitly and get 81 million votes for someone who is visibly deranged.  Bongino reviews an article by Jason Cohen at The Daily Caller in August.  It is the reason that people should not support mail-in balloting.  Republicans always lose in the mail-in ballots.  Bongino specifically addressed The Voter Registration Project, a "Democrat get out the vote machine."  In this scheme, they don't really care if after you register you're the one who voted under your registration as long as they can get a ballot out to you and that ballots returned."  This is how the cheating starts.  Then, after they're done with all the cheating they stop people from talking about it.  It's a way to keep [it] going.  That's why they needed COVID.  [Video clip]

Georgia's State Election Board Now Admits To Violations In 2020 Election!  The Georgia State Election Board has scheduled a meeting for December 19th at the Georgia State Capitol.  It now admits that "violations" in the 2020 election have been found — duplicate ballots and missing ballot images — after being "investigated by experienced investigators."  How many people are going to show up for this meeting?  My bet:  plenty more than the corrupt politicians in Georgia would like.

Kari Lake Lawsuit Accuses Maricopa County Of 'Unlawful' Certification of Voting Machines.  Republican Kari Lake's legal team filed a brief at the Arizona Court of Appeals Tuesday arguing Maricopa County broke the law by falsely stating voting machines were certified prior to the November 2022 general election when she was a candidate for governor.  In May, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson ruled against Lake concluding she had not provided sufficient evidence that Arizona election law was not followed during the contest, which Democrat Katie Hobbs won by less than one percent of the vote.  Lake then appealed the ruling in June.

Kari Lake's Attorneys File New Brief & Petition to Transfer Election Case to AZ Supreme Court.  Attorneys for Kari Lake have made two more filings in their ongoing fight to overturn the stolen Arizona gubernatorial election, including a Petition for Transfer to send her appeal directly to the Arizona Supreme Court.  The Gateway Pundit has reported extensively on the evidence of illegalities presented in Kari Lake's lawsuit.  Newly discovered evidence shows that machine failures affecting tens if not hundreds of thousands of voters on election day were likely caused by intentional misconduct.  Incorrect machine settings, printer settings, and ballot paper sizes utilized by Maricopa County caused machines at 60% of voting locations to fail on the day that Republicans turned out 3:1 to vote for Kari Lake and Republican candidates.

There's more going on with the Georgia ballot case and attorney resignations than you're being told.  As you've probably heard, in a surprising development, two defense attorneys abruptly resigned from the Georgia ballot case.  The case surrounds the accusation that thousands of GA ballots were actually counterfeit.  So, why did the two defense attorneys jump ship like that?  An IT expert named Kevin Kelton suggests that the county might be gearing up to admit they've destroyed the ballots in question.  If true, this puts Fulton County in a heap of legal trouble.  Destroying evidence during a case often signals guilt.  But there's more at stake here — are we witnessing a coverup?

Boston Democrats Look to Extend Voting Rights to Foreign Nationals.  Democrats on the Boston City Council are looking to extend local voting rights to foreign nationals in the United States on visas, green cards, and other forms of legal status.  Councilwoman Kendra Lara (D) introduced the measure, which would allow foreign nationals on green cards, visas, and other forms of legal status to vote in Boston municipal elections.  The measure is likely to gain widespread support from the council, which is made up of 12 Democrats.

And Now, a Few Words from Election '24.  Do you see me?  We haven't met yet, but we will. [...] As I see it, any interruption to Trump's advance toward the presidency is not off-limits for this deep state.  On the other hand, if I'm able to proceed as normal, what about election fraud?  Election '20 underwent the most serious abuse in terms of election integrity.  Am I to believe that we won't see things like the use of the judicial system to subvert the law or the illegal use of drop boxes?  I have already noticed that this past Election Day, voters in 18 states had issues, and there were "gas leaks" for Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Texas.

When Citizens Have Better Computer Technology Than Their Government — Minnesota Investigation finds 172,000+ Voter Issues.  For the first time in history, citizens have better computer technology than their government.  Today's video of Minnesota voter rolls shows, using Fractal technology, that citizens can identify anomalies in government voter rolls that existed for over 100 years — eluding all the obsolete technology Minnesota could bring to bear. [...] Voters living in UPS offices.  Voters living in convenience stores.  Voters living in an 800 square foot house with 15 other adult voters — which the health regulations would never allow — we show these in video after video.  In 2021, voter integrity teams in 12 states started using Fractal — and as you can see in today's video — Minnesota — Fractal makes a mockery of the Minnesota voter rolls.

Congress on a Hamster Wheel.  In nine states, ballots are still sent to everyone, regardless of need, request, or a pulse.  It bodes poorly for America's salvation that two-thirds of Democrats and half of Republicans have indicated a strong likelihood that they will vote by mail rather than drag themselves to a polling station.  The battle cry to count every vote is still a call to arms for digging up tranches of uncounted ballots in the wee hours and days after the polls close, culminating in sudden reversals of political fortune that favor Democrats.  Drop boxes, the dumpster of choice for illegal ballot deposits by political operatives called mules, continue to be utilized in at least 32 states, with little to no federal prosecutions of known offenders.  Although in receipt of credible whistleblower and video evidence, the FBI has downplayed or contested egregious incidents of hundreds of thousands of ballots crossing state lines and unmonitored after hours ballot counting at polling stations.  A three-year investigation undertaken by the Postal Service recently proved the FBI wrong in one case; however, no further action has been taken.

Video Released Showing Georgia's Ruby Freeman Saying She Doesn't Want to Talk with "WHITE GUYS".  Ruby Freeman, who was one of the individuals who stuck around on Election Night 2020 in Fulton County Georgia's State Farm Arena and shoved ballots through machines multiple times was caught on video in a racist rant complaining about "white guys."

A Trump-Tucker ticket?  A Trump Tucker ticket for the presidency in 2024.  Just imagine it. [...] An unashamed and without apology Trump-Tucker ticket might just be the political platform and personalities that save the American empire from the dustpan of history.  Now, if there is election interference and voter fraud like there was in 2020, it will not matter.  If in the toss-up states, they stop counting the votes at 11:30 p.m. and after everyone goes home, start up again at 2:30 in the morning, it won't matter.  If Fulton County, Georgia counts Biden votes multiple times, it won't matter.  If the upper Midwest states use Zuckerbucks again, it won't matter.  If the management and upper echelons at Fox News appear to be willing participants, it won't matter.  If state election officials in Pennsylvania are once again allowed to purposely ignore their very own state legislated election laws, it won't matter.  If 2024 election tabulations are counted just as they were in the Purple States in 2020, it won't matter.

Systemic voting fraud in America?  In recent years, concerns about voter fraud have grown significantly, with many individuals asserting that there are systemic issues within the American electoral system.  One striking example cited by those raising concerns about voter fraud is the Kentucky gubernatorial election, which looked like a close race, with the Democratic nominee, Andy Beshear, defeating Republican incumbent Matt Bevin by just over 5,000 votes, or 0.37%.  This made it the closest gubernatorial election in Kentucky since 1899 by votes and the closest ever by percentage.  The discrepancy in the voting patterns in this election raises eyebrows and sparks suspicions among those alleging voter fraud.  While Kentucky Republicans voted overwhelmingly for their party's candidates for other statewide offices, such as Attorney General and Secretary of State, they simultaneously chose a Democrat for the governor's position.  This divergent behavior among voters, especially within the same party, appears perplexing and contradictory.

Election Fraud Deniers Are The Real Threat To Democracy.  If you are like us, you're sick and tired of being labeled a "denier" any time you challenge the left's agenda.  Don't believe the earth will be destroyed unless we all live like cavemen?  You are a climate denier!  You worry about side effects from an experimental new vaccine.  Vaccine denier!  And if you suspect that election fraud is a real problem, you're an election denier!  The problem is that the "deniers" keep turning out to be right.  The latest example came out of Bridgeport, Connecticut, earlier this month, when a judge overturned the primary election for mayor because of an "unprecedented" volume of evidence showing ballot fraud, including surveillance footage exposing supporters of the incumbent stuffing stacks of absentee ballots into drop boxes.  Even CNN, which can always be relied on to dismiss election fraud as a myth, was forced to admit that "the Connecticut case does highlight the potential vulnerabilities with mail-in voting."  Just as a reminder, this is exactly what "election deniers" have been saying since 2020, when Democrats used COVID as an excuse to implement widespread mail-in voting schemes across the country.

Seattle Doesn't Expect To Have All Votes Counted Until 3 Weeks After Election Day.  The Seattle City Council general election results have not been announced nearly one week after election day as the elections committee continues to count votes.  Election results will not be made official until Nov. 28, although the King County Elections (KCE) will continue to update the unofficial results daily until all votes have been accounted for, according to the KCE website.  Most voters could only submit their ballot through the mail or at a drop-box location, meaning many ballots will not be received until days after the official election day.  [Tweet]  Only three out of the seven original council members up for reelection ran in the 2023 race — Democrats Tammy Morales, Dan Strauss and Andrew Lewis — leaving four seats open to newcomers, KIRO 7, a local news network, reported.  Initial reports showed that the incumbents were all trailing in their races, but Morales and Strauss quickly gained more votes as mail-in ballots trickled in on the days following the race.

Federal Judge Sets Trial over Dominion Voting Systems' Vulnerabilities in Georgia.  The question of whether Georgia's electronic voting system has major cybersecurity flaws that amount to a violation of voters' constitutional rights to cast their votes and have those votes accurately counted is set to be decided at trial early next year.  U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg issued a 135-page ruling late Friday in a long-running lawsuit filed by activists who want the state to ditch its electronic voting machines in favor of hand-marked paper ballots.  The state had asked the judge to rule in its favor based on the arguments and facts in the case without going to trial, but Totenberg found there are "material facts in dispute" that must be decided at trial.  She set a Jan. 9 bench trial, which means there will be no jury.  But she also suggested that the two sides work together to reach a resolution.

Is This The Definitive Proof That The Elections In 2020 Were Stolen?  Italian Intelligence along with U.S. sworn testimony confirms the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election was stolen from President Trump.  Satellites being controlled from Italy added votes to Biden to defeat Trump.  Joe Biden is not the lawful U.S. President.  Leonardo Aerospace, Defense and Security along with a U.S. State Department employee, the CIA, Italian Citizens and a Dominion Employee were all involved in the fraudulent stealing of the U.S. 2020 Presidential Election.  Joe Biden, once installed as the unlawful President of the United States, orders Mateo Renzi the Former Prime Minister of Italy to take down the current Prime Minister of Italy Guiseppe Conte.  This is done by paying off Conte with millions of dollars in cash to keep him quiet.  U.S. Federal Prosecutor John Durham has in his possession documents of evidence that shows Barack Obama illegally moved $400 Million dollars in cash on pallets through the Dubai Embassy with the help of the Italians.  They stole $400 Million dollars from America and put the money into a Merrill Lynch account in Geneva Switzerland.

It's not about Israel:  We are the target.  [Scroll down]  But there is an approach that allows you to cut through the hype and see what's really happening.  It's called "Occam's Razor."  The best definition is "The simplest explanation is usually the best one."  Doesn't that make sense?  Truth rarely needs 2,400 words to explain itself.  Take election fraud as an example.  On one side you hear that Republicans have embarked on a vast conspiracy to deprive all minorities of their rights to vote.  For some reason, black people are unable to get proper identification.  Therefore, we must eliminate the need to present proper identification when voting.  Voting is too inconvenient, so we must allow voting to go on for a month prior to each election, and we must mail absentee ballots everywhere, even if they go to the wrong address.  We must allow others to collect ballots and rely on them to be delivered honestly on our behalf.  All changes to election laws favor less security controls.  The other side is simpler:  Almost all voting errors favor the Democrat.  Almost all recounts favor the Democrat.  Democrats are cheating.  One hundred words vs. 16 words.  The most likely conclusion is that Democrats are cheating.  If incompetence is involved, the errors would cancel each other out.

Election Fraud Is Real — And It Needs To Be Fixed Before 2024.  On Nov. 1, Connecticut Judge William Clark overturned the results of the Bridgeport mayoral primary, calling video evidence of potential fraud "shocking."  Wanda Geter-Pataky, the vice chair of the Bridgeport Democratic Town Committee, appears to have been caught on video stuffing handfuls of ballots into a drop box outside City Hall.  On Oct. 25, in Paterson, New Jersey, the sitting president of the City Council, Alex Mendez, was charged with personally collecting large numbers of mail-in ballots in his district, destroying ballots that did not favor him and replacing them with ballots that falsely chose him.  New Jersey's Attorney General Matthew Platkin states that Mendez "personally observed from his wife's vehicle as a large, heavy bag, completely filled with ballots, was emptied into the Haledon postal box prior to the election."  On Nov. 2, in Springfield, Massachusetts, mayoral candidate Justin Hurst was nailed by city election officials for allegedly buying votes during early voting.  Videotape shows individuals being dropped off in black Suburbans and Expeditions, and entering City Hall to vote.

Lawyers for Fulton County Withdraw from Case over Missing Ballots.  Two high-powered criminal-defense attorneys have withdrawn from a 2020 election-fraud case in Fulton County, Georgia, prompting speculation that things look bleak for the fraud deniers, Becker News reported.  Attorneys Donald F. Samuel and Amanda R. Clark Palmer, who were defending the county, motioned to withdraw themselves from the Favorito v.  Wan case dealing with the fallout from the increasingly-probable election fraud in Georgia during the 2020 election.  Although Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger adamantly denied any widespread mishandling of ballots and refused to investigate claims to the contrary following the election, considerable evidence has since revealed the extent to which left-wing activist groups appeared to interfere, likely delivering the state to Democrat candidates — including Joe Biden, as well as Sens. Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, by razor-thin margins.

Why Are Fulton Attorneys Leaving A Case? — And Where Are the Ballots??  Donald F. Samuel and Amanda R. Clark, attorneys for Aaron Johnson and Teresa Crawford, have filed a motion to withdraw themselves from the case of Garland Favorito et al v. Alex Wan, et al.  A key issue in the case are 150,000 Fulton County absentee / mail-in ballots some of which are reportedly without fold creases and which did not appear to be hand marked.  When a voter marks and completes an absentee ballot, it is then folded and placed in a sealed envelope to submission or mailing to the County election department.  Ballots without creases or those appearing to be marked other than by hand would raise questions about the validity of the ballot.  Sources state that Fulton County has responded that the ballots in question are still under seal, however given the County's poor track record on transparency, the question of the condition, availability and number of retained ballots remains unknown.  These ballots are once again in the spotlight since Harrison Floyd's defense council is seeking to have them unsealed in preparing their defense to answer the charges made by Fani Willis.  Floyd is one of 19 defendants including President Trump, indicted by Fani Willis in what many are calling "prosecutorial misconduct."

Washington State Vote Counting Stopped by Antifa Threats.  Yesterday the news came out that a number of vote-counting stations in Washington State were temporarily closed when envelopes containing white powder instead of ballots were opened.  At least some of them contained fentanyl. [...] Obviously, nobody can be certain at this point who sent the flyers and fentanyl, but the claim that there was no obvious political motive seems something of a stretch.  But this is Washington State, where the politicians bend over backward to appease Left-wing radicals and dismiss the violence they inflict.  Had these been Nazi symbols there would be press conferences screaming about Donald Trump and MAGA, but Antifa disrupting elections is no big deal at all.  They like Trans people after all.  They must be good.  Transtifa has a history of violence, and the most common reaction is to blame the victims for inciting it.  Here you can't do that because the victims are government workers, so they do the next best thing:  cover up who did it.  It's appalling, but it works.  Propaganda works.  Memory holing inconvenient facts works.  Especially because the media is in on it.

What other tabulating machines have this problem?  Name one!
Voting Machine 'Error' Flipped Ballots In Pennsylvania Election:  Report.  A "coding error" was to blame for a voting machine flipping votes in a local election in Pennsylvania earlier this week, a mistake that will likely prompt new criticism of such machines and a call to return to paper ballots.  "A coding error in Northampton County, Pennsylvania's voting machines, caused a significant issue during a recent election.  The glitch resulted in votes being incorrectly flipped on a ballot question concerning the retention of two state judges," Resist the Mainstream reported.  The malfunction affected votes for candidates running for the Pennsylvania Superior Court, Judges Jack Panella and Victor Stabile, according to The Associated Press.  Votes marked "yes" to retain one judge and "no" for the other were switched on printouts from touchscreen ballot machines, County Executive Lamont McClure said, per the AP.

The Editor says...
If there really was a "coding error," it would have been found during the testing done by the state after the machines were delivered.  The machines were tested, weren't they?

Threats to the United States now at a Whole New Level.  The deep-state plan may include allowing terrorist attacks in the U.S. homeland to justify the imposition of a lockdown and then a shutdown of the November 2024 election.  That is unequivocally not an option.  America has lived through many wars, including the Civil War, which brought unprecedented destruction to the southern states — and we never considered delaying or cancelling elections.  Instead, we must use the opportunity of troubled times to defend the homeland and ensure we have honest elections no matter what the circumstances.

VP of Customer Operations of Voting Machine Company that 'Flipped' Votes Says "It Was a Human Error Someone From Our Team Programed the Election".  As The Gateway Pundit reported earlier, several voting machines in multiple districts across Northampton County had to issue emergency paper ballots due to "votes getting flipped and not recording properly" on their voting machines.  Shortly after the error occurred Northampton County Executive Lamont McClure was clearly frustrated about the problems at the polls and told Lehigh Valley News "I'm livid at the election folks and ES&S."  ES&S (Election Systems & Software) ExpressVoteXL machines were used in Northampton County elections.  Shortly after the machine errors occurred Northhampton County held an emergency press conference and invited Linda Bennett the Senior Vice President of Customer Operations at Election Systems & Software to explain why votes were switched in the retention race between Judge Jack Panella and Judge Victor Stabile for the Pennsylvania Superior Court.

Voting Machines Flip Votes Causing Panic On Election Day, No One Trusts Elections.  [Video clip only.]

Stop Drinking the Political Kool-Aid, America:  Voting Will Not Save Us.  We are one year out from the 2024 presidential election and as usual, the American people remain eager to be persuaded that a new president in the White House can solve the problems that plague us.  Yet what is being staged is not an election.  It's a con game, [...] We're being duped into believing that this mockery of a choice between two candidates who are equally unfit for office actually translates to having some say in how the government is run.  To the contrary, this particular con game is part of a long-running, elaborate scam to keep the Deep State in power and leave the populace deluded, distracted and incapable of demanding accountability, transparency and decency from the government and its cohorts.

Voting machines down in Pennsylvania; votes getting flipped.  Multiple polling locations in Pennsylvania experienced voting machine issues Tuesday morning, forcing election officials to offer voters provisional ballots.  According to Lehigh Valley News, a local publication, the county's ES&S ExpressVote XL machines experienced programming errors that caused votes to flip.  The Northampton County Elections Office stated, "It appears that when a voter selects a 'Yes' or a 'No' for one of the candidates for retention to the Pennsylvania Superior Court, the selection is recorded on the paper ballot and on the machine for the other candidate."  "The issue is limited to the retention of Superior Court Judges and is only an issue when recording the votes for when a voter selected a 'Yes' for one candidate and a 'No' for another candidate," the statement added.

Voting Machines Down in Several Districts in Pennsylvania Due to "Votes Getting Flipped".  Election Day got off to a rough start in several districts in Northampton County, Pennsylvania.  Lehigh Valley News has reported several voting machines in multiple districts across Northampton County are down due to "votes getting flipped and not recording properly."  Voting machines went down in Palmer Township, Bethany Wesleyan Church in Lehigh Township, College Hill Presbyterian Church in Easton, and at the Allen Township Fire Hall.  The voting machines only flipped votes in the retention race between Judge Jack Panella and Judge Victor Stabile for the Pennsylvania Superior Court.

Early Voting Is Against The Law.  Not long ago, Election Day found hundreds of millions of Republicans, Democrats, and independents with heads full of knowledge about candidates and causes.  Beyond the infirm and the absent, Americans walked with dignity into their precincts at schools, firehouses, and libraries.  And on one glorious autumn day, we decided en masse — who would lead us in Congress and the White House.  Today, the same crowd that cannot tell a man from a woman has demolished this beautiful picture, too.  Election Day teeters on extinction.  Americans now vote across Election Quarter.  Elections start about Labor Day and end around Black Friday.  Not good!  But this need not be.  And Americans who want to restore Election Day have a powerful weapon:  The Law.  Federal elections are required to occur on "the Tuesday next, after the first Monday in November."  This date is not based on something that Mark Twain whispered to Ulysses S. Grant.  It is neither optional nor suggested.  According to 2 US Code § 7, that Tuesday "is established as the day for the election... of Representatives and Delegates to the Congress."

Three new cases of election fraud.  Election fraud is making headlines in three Democratic states — Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. [...] Democrat Henrilynn Ibezim, a former candidate for Plainfield mayor in 2021, found himself charged with "election fraud and other crimes."  These charges include:
  •   Election fraud.
  •   Criminal attempt to commit false registration or transfer.
  •   Tampering with public records.
  •   Forgery.
  •   Hindering apprehension or prosecution.
  •   Falsifying or tampering with records.
These charges stem from an Office of Public Integrity and Accountability's (OPIA) Corruption Bureau investigation.  Ibezim allegedly directed associates and campaign volunteers to complete blank voter registration applications based on forms with voter information he provided to the group.  He then allegedly brought a large white garbage bag filled with nearly 1,000 of these fake voter-registration applications to the post office to mail to the Union County Commissioner of Registration.  The investigation into Ibezim fits into the larger context of election fraud in New Jersey in several ways: [...]

Pennsylvania's 2020 Election Was Invalid — Says Who?  Pennsylvania has a unique voter registration system, called SURE.  Like every other voter registration system, the SURE system comprises all legally registered voters in the state.  However, it also includes a subcategory of registered voters:  the ones who actually voted in the last election (in this case, the 2020 election).  Because of that special subcategory (registered voters who actually voted), it is possible to compare the total ballots cast in the 2020 election to the total voters who participated in that election.  The numbers must match because there has to be a one-to-one relationship between voters and ballots.  If parity does not exist, something is wrong.  Verity Vote (V.V.) is a Pennsylvania data analysis firm headed by Heather Honey.  For the 2020 election, V.V. prepared a careful and detailed comparison of voters who participated in the election vs. ballots cast.  Here are the V.V. findings:
  •   When PA certified its election on November 24, 2020, there were about 202,000 more ballots cast than identifiable voters.  In other words, there was a large voter deficit.
  •   In late January 2021, when the 67 PA counties finally posted all voter information into the SURE registration system, there was still a voter deficit — about 121,000.

The Noncitizen Voting Scam.  If you think offering migrants luxury hotel rooms, free meals, laundry service, transportation, health care, and immigration lawyers is excessive, just wait until they can vote.  Democrats are pushing to allow noncitizens to vote in local elections in New York City, Boston, and other municipalities, and statewide in Connecticut.  The number of migrants pouring across the southern border has hit a record high, according to data released on Oct. 21.  Illegal immigrant crossings soared 21 percent over the previous month.  On a yearly basis, the figure hit 2.48 million.  Democrats may feign shock and distress.  Don't be fooled.  Democrats see these newcomers as their guarantee of a permanent voting majority in local elections.  Not years from now, after the newcomers become citizens.  Right now.

Why Democrats will not close the border.  In keeping with the Biden administration's apparent indifference to the flood of child-trafficking and opioids plaguing our country, there is no indication that it is wavering on its lackadaisical border policy.  Why is the porous border so important to Democrats?  In some respects, migrants are treated better than citizens in similar economic straits.  More to the point, how many voting migrants will it take to turn the country irrevocably blue?

One judge in Connecticut shows how to do it when faced with election fraud.  If you've watched Dinesh D'Souza's 2000 Mules, he makes one overarching point:  In multiple contested election precincts in America, people were caught stuffing all the ballot boxes made possible through COVID.  They were caught either directly, with video footage showing them stuffing those boxes, or indirectly, with cell phone data showing them making repeated trips between Democrat non-profits and drop boxes.  Trump supporters tried to bring this evidence before the courts, but judge after judge, either because of political ideology or cowardice (I'm talking to you, United States Supreme Court justices), refused to touch those claims.  And after too much time had passed, the egg seemingly couldn't be unscrambled.  One judge in Connecticut, though, reversed a local election, showing that it can be done.  He did so because he was confronted with "shocking" evidence of election fraud through dropbox stuffing.

A Connecticut Democrat Judge Has Overturned the Bridgeport Mayoral Primary Results and Ordered a New Election.  In a significant turn of events, a Democratic judge in Connecticut has made a game-changing decision by overturning the results of the Bridgeport Democratic mayoral primary.  Superior Court Judge William Clark has ordered a new election to take place, citing compelling video evidence of election fraud as the foundation for his ruling.  This decision carries implications that extend far beyond Bridgeport, as it establishes a precedent for addressing mail-in ballot fraud in ongoing and future cases.  Back in September, The Gateway Pundit reported on an explosive video released by mayoral candidate John Gomes' campaign.  This video presented damning evidence of election fraud during the Bridgeport Democratic primary, prompting the Bridgeport Police Department to launch an investigation into potential misconduct.

Connecticut Judge Throws Out Election Results and Orders New Primary After "Shocking" Evidence of Democrat Ballot Fraud.  In Bridgeport, Connecticut, State Judge William Clark has thrown out the results of the September Democrat primary election and ordered a new primary to be scheduled and conducted.  The issue was ballot harvesting and ballot fraud — both violations of state law.  The Judge reviewed CCTV footage showing Wanda Geter-Pataky, vice chair of the Bridgeport Democratic Town Committee and operations specialist for the city, and Eneida Martinez, a former City Council member, working to support the party approved candidate.  Both Ms Geter-Pataky and Ms Martinez participated in absentee ballot fraud, ballot harvesting and ballot stuffing at drop boxes.  Both women invoked the Fifth Amendment when confronted as witnesses by the judge.

Bridgeport Ballot Fraud Update:  Judge Orders New Democratic Primary For Mayor In Gomes Case.  Superior Court Judge William Clark has ordered a new primary in the shocking case of ballot fraud brought forth by Bridgeport Mayoral candidate John Gomes.  Judge Clark said that the totality of evidence presented was "sufficient to demonstrate that a substantial number of ballots were handled improperly in violation of mandatory provisions of Connecticut law."  The municipal election is scheduled for November 7th, but the November 1st ruling requires a new democrat mayoral primary within 10 days, meaning the primary could conceivably happen after the municipal election on November 7th.  How that will impact election day in Bridgeport remains unclear at this time.  In theory, both Ganim and Gomes would appear on the ballot, Ganim as a Democrat and Gomes as an Independent.

Consequences of American Communism.  [Scroll down]  Ken Paxton, the Texas Attorney General was one of the several Attorneys General who sued to have the election nullified.  He sued the Biden Administration over the border issues and what happened?  A Bush-supported group in Texas convinced enough people in the state House to impeach him largely because Paxton had filed over 900 election fraud cases just within Texas.  That was a sin, because it looked bad for their "no evidence of voter fraud" narrative.  Then, the House passed a bill to keep him from trying election cases.  That's how it's done and to keep him from pursuing it any further, they tried to have him removed.  This was all at the behest of the Bushes in Dallas and they continue to use their globalist backers and whatever other means available to stop Paxton from pursuing the issues the people of Texas, and the country, care about.

Ranked-Choice Voting Is The Monster Under The Bed Of American Elections.  Democrats are using ranked-choice voting (RCV) to benefit their party and disenfranchise voters in elections across the country, a new report provided to The Federalist found.  Published by the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA), the new analysis unearths how Democrats use the complexities associated with RCV to diminish confidence in elections among U.S. voters.  Under RCV, often dubbed "rigged-choice voting" by its critics, voters rank candidates in order of preference.  If no candidate receives more than 50 percent of first-choice votes in the first round of voting, the last-place finisher is eliminated, and his votes are reallocated to the voter's second-choice candidate.  This process continues until one candidate receives a majority of votes.  While both major political parties have a history of promoting RCV, it's primarily Democrats who are pushing states and localities to adopt the practice for future elections.

Wisconsin Is Working to Fix the 2020 Election Fraud to Avoid a Repeat in 2024.  Thanks to the courage, conviction and commitment of a handful of legislators (Ramthun and Brandtjen) and election integrity supporters, volumes of evidence have been cataloged that would clearly hold up in a court of law to show how the administration of elections in Wisconsin were severely compromised if not outright illegal in the 2020 Presidential Election based on many settled court cases since then.  Rather than looking backward, pointing fingers, going down rabbit trails, placing blame and the proverbial "...could-a, would-a, should-a", we must learn from 2020 and make sure there isn't a repeat in 2024.  We must have an "all-hands-on-deck" approach to bring all of the political party, patriots and practitioners together while exhibiting forgiveness, humility, trust, approachability and a pathway forward to make sure Wisconsin's 10 Electoral College Votes are legally certified in 2024.

New Jersey Democrats Face New Charges Over Election Fraud Involving Mail-In Ballots and Voter Registrations.  New Jersey's Attorney General Matthew J. Platkin has added new charges to an ongoing election-fraud case involving Democrat Alex Mendez, the Paterson City Council President, and several alleged co-conspirators.  According to the Attorney General, the defendants are accused of attempting to rig the election, tampering with ballots, and obstructing the course of justice through witness tampering.  Mendez was initially indicted on election fraud charges in 2021.  Now, fresh charges have been brought against him, his wife Yohanny Mendez, and two other Paterson residents, Omar Ledesma and Iris Rigo.  The revelations came after an extensive investigation by the Office of Public Integrity and Accountability (OPIA), which itself was prompted when the U.S. Postal Inspection Service found hundreds of mail-in ballots for the May 2020 Paterson municipal election suspiciously stashed in a mailbox in a neighboring municipality.

It's almost like there's a conspiracy against Trump.  [Scroll down]  Dr. Anthony Fauci's Wuhan virus coincidently escaped the lab.  Aware, and against Trump, the CCP permitted thousands of infected passengers to enter the U.S. where it created a pandemic.  Anticipating it and seemingly prepared for it, the Democrat party exploited it to create a seismic, unprecedented distortion in public policies around economy-killing lockdowns, and in voting rules, increasing unverifiable ballots by previously unheard of multiples.  It coordinated with its champions in social, print and network media to censor and suppress [embarrassing] information about its own candidate and his depraved family.  They were so certain that they could cheat out a victory that they kept their candidate, lifelong liar and incompetent Joe Biden, in his basement as Trump held massive rallies.  Trump went to bed election night well ahead.  By morning he had lost.  See Dinesh D'Souza's documentary, 2,000 Mules.  Myriad legitimate legal appeals were filed.  All were rejected by the courts, either because of cowardice, complicity, or both.

Democrats' Campaign To Disbar John Eastman Is Designed To Criminalize Republican Election Challenges.  After having his phone seized by the FBI, enduring harassment from House Democrats' J6 Committee, and getting indicted by a corrupt Fulton County district attorney, constitutional scholar John Eastman has once again found himself the target of Democrats' crusade to weaponize the legal system against their political opponents.  Over the past several weeks, prosecutors representing the State Bar of California (SBC) have been working in state court to strip Eastman of his ability to practice law and, effectively, destroy his livelihood.  In January, the SBC announced it was charging Eastman for advising former President Donald Trump over the latter's legal challenges to the 2020 election results.  This announcement came nearly a year after the agency revealed it had been investigating Eastman for potential "violation[s] of California law and ethics rules governing attorneys."

N.J. council president 'personally collected ballots' in local voting fraud scheme, AG says.  The sitting president of the Paterson City Council, already under indictment in a 2020 election fraud probe, faces new charges after state authorities say they uncovered evidence that he "personally collected ballots" in violation of New Jersey election law and tampered with witnesses in the case.  The fresh accusations against Alex Mendez provide new details in an long-looming vote-by-mail fraud probe that drew national attention after former President Donald Trump invoked the case in his attacks on the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential race.  Mendez, who represents the city's 3rd Ward, now faces nine counts ranging from conspiracy to commit election fraud to forgery and witness tampering, according to the state Office of Public Integrity and Accountability, which brought the charges.  The accusations stem from Paterson's May 2020 municipal race.

The Late Hour of Our Republic.  It is my belief, and solely my own, that we, the United States of America, have been captured by the powerbase of the elite and that our representatives and senators now respond to that powerbase, that the people, that are the powerbase of America, have been conquered.  It was done in secret, behind our backs, not in a war or through attrition, but by trickery and now whatever fighting we do for our nation is done for the powerbase of the elite. [...] I tell you that the disinterestedness of our elected officials in our pleas to rectify the election process is a symptom of this capitulation to the powerbase of the elite.  They don't care, because they don't have to.  Anything that could implicate them in the fraudulent elections is discarded by those same elite.  This is the same with the immigration laws, with the laws against theft, rape and murder.  They don't matter, because we do not live in a constitutional republic.  Our rights have been subsumed by their system of graft and clout, of power and prestige.

The Extreme Danger of Mail-In Voting.  Mail-in voting has made the secret ballot a thing of the past.  That will be the death of democracy, with new threats from the far left.  Loss of secrecy is one of the worst but hardly ever discussed dangers with mail-in voting.  What do you think is going to happen in light of recent reports of leftists openly threatening to "deprogram" and persecute Trump voters?  Do leftists ever feel any shame for what they have done to this country by voting for the current regime and tacitly supporting it with their silence?  Dinesh D'Souza was recently on the Glenn Beck Program discussing his new film, Police State, going through the features of this kind of regime, with many uncannily already in place, as brought on by Biden or his hidden handler therein.

'Stand for America' means to force states into conducting clean, honest, fair, elections.  Two years ago, a group of New Yorkers — busy, like you — felt that something had gone terribly wrong in our state. [...] Finally, we watched as massive, blatant election misconduct went unanswered in 2020 and 2022.  Against this stark landscape, we set forth to determine if our elections were fair and honest.  What we found is stunning:  New York elections appear to massively violate state and federal law.  The problems are dismissed by officials who steadfastly resist the efforts of honest, well-intentioned citizens to get answers regarding their legitimate findings.  Certification of the 2020 and 2022 elections in New York was provable misconduct:  a civil rights violation, acting under color of law, of the entire U.S. citizenry.

What happened to Sidney Powell?  Shortly after January 6, Powell was, apparently, part of a group that sought to test one of the Georgia voting machines.  This is being portrayed as the crime of the century, and it led to Powell's recent plea deal.  By now you have heard that Sidney Powell pleaded guilty in the so-called Georgia election interference case.  However, it seems that she has not recanted her views regarding election fraud.  Her guilty plea concerns only a misguided effort to test an election machine in Coffee County.  It is barely a crime at all, since there was no criminal intent.  The so-called Powell conspirators made pictures of ballots after getting permission from Misty Hampton, the Coffee County elections administrator.  No one was trying to destroy records, change votes, or damage equipment.  Big deal!

DC Board of Elections breach may include entire voter roll.  Abreach of Washington, D.C. voter data may have been broader than initially understood and may have included the entire voter role, the District of Columbia Board of Elections said in a statement Friday.  The board first learned of the breach after voter data was offered for a sale in an online forum earlier this month.  Initially, the board believed the affected data amounted to 600,000 lines, but in a call with its hosting provider on Friday learned that the breached database included a copy of the full voter roll.

Texas Secretary of State Releases Election Audit Findings, And They Are Deeply Troubling.  Recent preliminary findings from a state audit of November 2022 Harris County, Texas, election are highlighting the vital importance of upholding the integrity of our democratic processes.  Texas Secretary of State Jane Nelson released preliminary findings of the audit stating, "Harris County clearly had multiple failures conducting the election and violated election law for estimating needed ballot paper," according to KPRC-TV.  "Mistakes like these led to a poorly executed election which left many Harris County residents frustrated and may have prevented them from voting.  It is important to talk about these issues now in order to address them before the 2024 election cycle," Nelson added.  Nelson's statement highlighted a range of issues uncovered during the audit.  These problems include discrepancies in voter registration data, a failure to deliver essential supplies to polling locations, equipment malfunctions, and incomplete paperwork.

The Curious Case Of Miami-Dade 'Blank Ballots'.  As part of the ongoing efforts to clean up the rampant corruption in Florida elections and hold those responsible for the theft of our elections accountable, we have been doing massive public records requests.  These efforts led to significant impact in Florida, Maryland, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona election integrity efforts in exposing the depth of the voting machine use in widespread election fraud.  The latest development was recently in Miami-Dade county long known as a haven for rampant election and voter fraud.  We had requested data regarding the conducting of elections, and the required filing of election data with the state of Florida.  Over the past few years, we have been peeling back the layers of election fraud being conducted within the Supervisor of Elections Offices across the State of Florida, supervised by Maria Matthews and Cord Byrd.  We brought massive irrefutable proof to Byrd, DeSantis, Moody and the farcical "Elections Crime Unit" that Ron DeSantis used to round up disenfranchised felons who were misled into thinking that they could vote in elections.

The High-tech Lynching of America.  The COVID-19 lockdowns and the death of George Floyd in May 2020 created an environment of fear.  And fear of going to the polls gave Democrat activists and lawyers the opportunity to change election laws and protocols in key swing states to expand the utilization of mail-in ballots, ballot harvesting, and lengthening vote counting deadlines.  These initiatives enabled paid activists to manipulate voter registration and the vote count through fraudulent ballots — undertaken to deny Donald Trump a second term.

Fight for Hand Count Ballots.  During the four days of the Douglas County Fair, the Republican Party Booth offered the public a citizens petition to sign in support of hand counting ballots within the county.  The volunteers manning the booth reported that about 90% of the fair goers that stopped at the booth also signed the petition.  There were 372 total signatures, mostly from the fair booth.  An associated list kept of people who would be willing to volunteer on the counting board received 90 signatures.  Thanks to the fairgoers for confirming that the people of Douglas County want their ballots counted by humans, not machines.  The Douglas County Clerk in Oregon, Dan Loomis, has denied 6 "Prospective Initiative Petitions" that would allow petitioners to have the formal petitions needed to gather signatures for getting "hand counting of the ballots" on the Douglas County ballot for the 2024 primary.

North Carolina Republicans override Dem governor's vetoes of two election integrity bills.  North Carolina Republicans in the state legislature overrode Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper's vetoes on two election integrity bills, passing the bills into law.  On Tuesday, the Republican-controlled North Carolina state legislature overrode Cooper's vetoes on Senate Bills 747 and 749, The Carolina Journal reported.  The House overrode the vetoes of both bills 72-44 and the Senate followed suit, 30-19.  SB 747 requires absentee ballots to be received by Election Day and bans Zuckbucks — the injection of private money into public election administration.  SB 749 splits the appointments of the state Board of Elections between the state legislature majority and minority party leaders.  Previously, the governor would make the appointments on the recommendations of the two largest state parties and choose his own tie-breaker.

There Is No Election Integrity, It's up to Us.  In a commonsensical way, United Sovereign Americans, the New York Citizens Audit, and the other state audits now underway are doing no more than trying to ensure that the civil rights of all voting Americans are protected and that the pertinent laws were followed to the letter by civil servants and government-appointed officials when they certified the elections.  A copy of the New York Citizens Audit was sent to the New York Commissioner of Election Integrity, but the Audit has yet to receive a reply from that entity.  What it did receive was a cease-and-desist order from New York's Attorney General Letitia James, who — after receiving a copy of the Audit — demanded that the Audit's staff stop portraying themselves as "election officials," something they have never done.

Physicist Testifying at Disbarment Trial of Trump's Former Attorney John Eastman Discusses Report That Found 130,000 Instances of 'Voter Fraud' in Nevada.  Physicist and auditor John Droz testified all day Thursday in the ongoing disbarment trial of Donald Trump's former attorney and constitutional scholar, John Eastman.  California Disciplinary Court Judge Yvette Roland, who contributed to Democrats while on the bench, spent a large portion of the day successfully attempting to keep Droz's investigative reports into the 2020 election and his testimony from being admitted into evidence.  Some of his testimony that was struck from the record afterward discussed a report that attorney Jesse Binnall delivered to Congress, laying out what he found as 130,000 incidents of voter fraud in Nevada's 2020 election. [...] [Eastman's attorney, Randy] Miller next attempted to ask Droz about a report he and his team authored on vote spikes for Biden on election night in 2020.  They found 26 large net vote dumps for Biden of 25,000 or more in 14 states suspected of election fraud.  Some had more than one spike — Pennsylvania had four spikes.  Not a single spike occurred in favor of Trump, the report found.

Retired DoD Analyst Reveals Biden Got Fewer Votes Than Hillary In Philadelphia.  The disbarment trial of Trump's former attorney and constitutional legal scholar John Eastman entered into its seventh week on Tuesday, with two of Eastman's witnesses returning to the witness stand for cross-examination.  Physicist John Droz discussed the reports he oversaw on election anomalies in the 2020 election, and retired Department of Defense analyst Ray Blehar revealed that despite the huge increases in votes for Joe Biden compared to Hillary Clinton in 2016, Biden got fewer votes than she did in Philadelphia.  The proceedings began with a discussion of whether Eastman's witnesses would be allowed to testify about the vote spikes report, which revealed large net dumps of votes solely for Joe Biden on election night.

Automatic voter registration will lead to foreign nationals getting on voter rolls.  With great fanfare, Pennsylvania Gov. Josh Shapiro announced that the commonwealth will begin implementing automatic voter registration.  Automatic voter registration means that when Pennsylvanians get driver's licenses or state-issued government IDs they will automatically be registered to vote unless they opt out.  Currently, people opt in to register to vote.  This may on the surface sound like a good thing.  After all, we all want every American who wants to exercise his or her right to vote to be able to have their voice heard at the ballot box.  But a deeper look at automatic voter registration reveals it often exacerbates errors on the voter roll.  Based on real data, Pennsylvania is the last place that should be implementing this risky plan.  Over the last 20 years, no state has performed worse in keeping ineligible, duplicated and even foreigners off state voter rolls.

Registrar Accidentally Sends Around 7,500 Duplicate Ballots for Nov. 7 Special Election.  The San Diego County Registrar of Voters office found that around 1% of voters for the Nov. 7 special election may have received duplicate ballots, it was announced Wednesday.  According to the registrar, the mistake impacts voters in the county Board of Supervisors District 4 special election and less than a dozen voters in the city of Chula Vista special election.  Following discovery of the duplicate ballots, the registrar's office "immediately contacted the print and mailing vendor to determine what happened and how many voters were impacted," according to a statement from the office.  "After researching, they reported that around 7,500 or a little over 1% of voters out of the nearly 600,000 voters who were mailed a ballot, have inadvertently received a duplicate mail ballot packet."  One of the two ballot packets had already been suspended in the computer system and should not have been mailed.

Democrat Election Clerk Admits She Has Not Been Following the Law on Mail-In Ballots.  For the first time on Thursday, a judge began examining evidence in the legal case aimed at reversing the outcome of the Bridgeport Mayoral Primary.  The investigation comes in the wake of a scandal that has rocked the state's largest city, where surveillance footage captured a woman inserting multiple pieces of paper into an absentee ballot drop box just one week before the mayoral primary election.  The Gateway Pundit previously reported that mayoral candidate John Gomes' campaign released a damning video last month showing evidence of election fraud in the recent Bridgeport Democratic primary.  The video has prompted an investigation by the Bridgeport Police Department for "possible misconduct."  The video on the Gomes campaign's Facebook page shows a woman dropping stacks of 'illegal' ballots into an absentee ballot box outside the Bridgeport government center, where the city's Registrar of Voters office is located, CT Mirror reported.

An Old Man Looks at America.  For most of my life, voting required a certain amount of discipline.  Depending on where you lived, you might have been required to pre-register to vote, typically requiring ID; you had to actually show up on Election Day, register or show ID; and then cast a single vote, with the results to be known late that night or early the next morning.  Now voting is a bad joke, with more moving parts than an old merry-go-round.  There's [...] early voting, Election Day voting, late voting, remote voting, automatic vote registration, mail-out ballots, mail-in ballots, harvested ballots, lost ballots, found ballots, and the always popular ballot boxes.  And the results won't be known for days, with strange vote total turnarounds now commonplace.  All I can say to that is, if you think the Dems unilaterally engineered a million ways to cheat electorally and then didn't utilize them, you're truly a fool of the first order.  And you'll soon part with ever more of your money as big government manages more and more of your life.  It's happening now.

A request for help from John Eastman.  The crux of the State Bar's case against me is its claim that there was no evidence of significant fraud in the 2020 presidential elections and my legal filings on behalf of President Trump and my public statements to the contrary show that I am unfit to be a lawyer.  This is the outrageous and false position that State Bar prosecutors have staked out in court for week after week.  But now, finally, I have been able to begin to present my defense.  Through the efforts of my legal team and the blockbuster testimony of my amazing witnesses, the American people are finally seeing all of the election illegality and fraud that we all saw with our own eyes back in 2020 get its day in court.  This attack against me by the California State Bar mirrors the charges of a partisan lawfare group that is determined to put me, President Trump and all of his defenders in prison.  I have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending against these outrageously false charges, and I am looking at over $1 million in additional costs.

Drop boxes have become key to election conspiracy theories.  Two Democrats just fueled those claims.  A woman approaches a drop box in the dark with what appears to be handfuls of ballots.  At a different drop box, someone else is seen making multiple trips to insert ballots.  At yet another, the same car stops on at least three separate occasions, with different people stepping out and heading to the box.  It's not a trailer for the latest conspiracy movie about rigged elections.  Instead, the video footage has become central to a real-world controversy over potential fraud involving ballot drop boxes, a favorite target of right-wing conspiracy theorists since former President Donald Trump's loss in the 2020 election.  The accusations of drop box fraud are not coming from those pushing fringe election claims or from skeptical Republicans who have long favored eliminating or severely restricting use of the boxes.

Connecticut manages to get the AP to notice ballot drop box problems.  For the past few weeks we've been covering the disputed mayoral election in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where a woman was caught on video stuffing ballots into drop boxes in the middle of the night.  The race came down to a couple hundred votes and the "loser" is currently in court fighting to have the results vacated.  The woman with the envelopes full of ballots is under investigation, just as she was in the previous election.  The dubious results have attracted national attention and once again highlighted the problems with mass mail-in voting and public ballot drop boxes.  The situation has created such a stench that even the Associated Press felt compelled to cover this story this week.  Of course, as we would expect, they're trying to imply that the drop boxes couldn't possibly be the real problem.

'We've Lost Everything': MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell Says Election-Fraud Lawsuits Have Ruined Him.  Mike Lindell, CEO and Founder of MyPillow, hasn't a dime left thanks to the lawfare waged against him over claims of a stolen election.  According to NBC News, Lindell's lawyers at Parker Daniels Kibort LLC (PDK) are pushing him out due to millions of unpaid legal fees: [...] Lindell claimed the 2020 election was stolen through voting machines created by Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems who claim their reputations were ruined by Lindell's claims.  A third lawsuit was brought against Lindelol by former Dominion employee Eric Coomer.  Lindell told NBC that if he had the money, he would gladly pay his lawyers whom he referred to as "brave and courageous."  "We've lost everything, every dime," he told NBC News.  "All of it is gone."

10 Ways Democrats Are Already Rigging the 2024 Election.  Sometimes the only way to win the game is to change the rules in your favor — and that's exactly what Democrats have been doing to America's election laws.  After expanding insecure voting practices such as mass unsupervised mail-in voting and the use of ballot drop boxes during the 2020 election, Democrat-controlled state legislatures have sought to enshrine these policies into law across the country.  States such as New Mexico, Minnesota, and Michigan have all adopted sloppy election procedures under the guise of "democracy" and so-called "voting rights." [...] Shortly after taking office, Biden took the unprecedented step of ordering hundreds of federal agencies to interfere in state and local election administration.  Executive Order 14019 mandated all departments use U.S. taxpayer money to boost voter registration and get-out-the-vote activities.  Agencies were also instructed to develop "a strategic plan" explaining how they intended to fulfill this directive.  While the Biden administration has routinely stonewalled efforts by good government groups to acquire these plans, available information reveals an apparently partisan venture aimed at registering voters who are likely to support Democrats.

They Are That Evil.  No one with a brain and the ability to do math believes that Joe Biden won the 2020 election.  Everything logical speaks against it.  The rock-star-like reception Trump gets everywhere he goes and the sparse crowds that accompany Joe Biden make that narrative an obvious lie.  No one has been willing to examine the votes taken or the illegality of the law changes at the last moment before the election (most of which required an alteration of the state constitution to change the law).  They just don't want to see it.  But the people know.

AVR: The Newest form of election cheating.  To many state administrators, it is not good enough to permit citizens to register to vote when they get a driver's license.  They must be registered automatically when they interact with any state agency — not just the DMV.  Oregon became the first state to implement AVR (Automatic Voter Registration) in 2016.  Since then, the concept has spread like wildfire, mostly among Democrat-controlled states.  As of February 2023, there were 23 states trolling for extra voters with the AVR system.  However, the systems are not all the same.  There are "front end" AVR states, where the individual can opt out of registration right away.  There are "back end" AVR states, where the person is registered unless he opts out at home — some days later, when he is informed of the registration with a postcard.  Of course, he may not be able to read that postcard if English is not his native tongue.

11 HERO Lawmakers Sue MI SOS Jocelyn Benson and MI Director of Elections In Federal Court.  Eleven Michigan state legislators have filed a lawsuit today in federal court against state election officials.  The lawsuit claims the 2018 and 2022 state constitutional amendments regulating the times, places, and manner of federal elections are legally null and void.  The U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 4 (the Elections Clause), requires the state legislature to regulate the times, places, and manner of federal elections.  However, Michigan's constitutional amendments (Proposal 3 of 2018 and Proposal 2 of 2022) bypassed the state legislature and, in doing so, usurped the legislature's federally mandated constitutional authority.  These state constitutional amendments included provisions that allow voters to sign affidavits instead of presenting valid identification when voting in person or applying for an absentee ballot; nine days of early voting; private funding of election administration; no-excuse absentee voting procedures; same-day voter registrations; state-funded absentee ballot drop boxes, and independent redistricting commissions.  The lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan, names as defendants Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Jonathan Brater, Director of the Bureau of Elections.

FBI Hides Evidence of Nationwide Voter Registration Fraud.  You may or may not have heard of the nationwide voter registration fraud scheme.  And you won't hear much about it now in the media.  It involves tens of thousands of fake voters.  The FBI is hiding the information using the usual excuse that it's an ongoing investigation.  Just the News confirmed the FBI will not release the information.  The probe began in Michigan and has the potential to be very widespread.  The FBI took over a 2020 probe into voter registration fraud.  John Solomon's Just the News confirmed, "According to the dozens of pages of police reports from the Muskegon Police Department and Michigan State Police, a firm called GBI Strategies was under scrutiny as an organization central to alleged voter registration fraud in the 2020 presidential election.  The matter was initially investigated by city and state authorities before the FBI took over."

28% Of Americans [are] 'Not Confident' That 2024 Vote Will Be Fair And Accurate:  I&I/TIPP Poll.  Will the 2024 election be fair, or marred by systematic cheating?  Based on how Americans feel about recent elections and the coming presidential contest, most are confident the election will be fair.  But there's a huge political gap on the issue between Democrats on one side, and Republicans and independents on the other, the latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows.  First, the good news:  65% of the 1,223 registered voters queried in the national online I&I/TIPP Poll, which was taken from Aug. 30 [to] Sept. 1, called themselves either "very confident" (42%) or "somewhat confident" (23%) that the 2024 election "will be conducted fairly and accurately."  The bad news: 28% of Americans expressed being either "not very confident" (17%) or "not at all confident" (11%).  So more than a quarter of the electorate harbors doubts about the legitimacy of the coming presidential election.  The poll has a 2.9 percentage-point margin of error.

Smartmatic Voting Company Implicated in Massive Scandal, DOJ Steps In.  Voting tech company 'Smartmatic' has just come under fire, as new details have emerged on a huge controversy.  The company is now facing money laundering charges from the Department of Justice (DOJ) against four executives.  Now, former Filipino election official Andres Bautista has been accused of being involved in a bribery scheme with Smartmatic.  These individuals are accused of transferring $4 million to former Filipino election official Andres Bautista "in violation of US money laundering laws".  It is reported that Bautista was given $199 million in contracts for almost 100,000 voting machines and tabulation services for Philippine Presidential elections back in 2016.  In response to this accusation, Bautista took to social media stating he "did not ask for nor receive any bribe money from Smartmatic or any other entity."  Despite his defense, it remains unclear as to whether there was any wrongdoing on part of Smartmatic or Bautista himself.  A spokeswoman from Smartmatic also attempted to deny these allegations by claiming that they have never won a project through illegal means and that these claims are not related to their security and integrity measures when it comes to elections.

The Democrats Broke The Constitution In 2020, But There's An Upside.  I spent much of the two months following the 2020 election arguing with Democrats who pretended that Joe Biden actually won.  Their line was: "Prove it was fraudulent".  I couldn't.  "There was no fraud," we were told by the media, every branch of government, academics, Democrats, and the TDS-afflicted GOP establishment types.  That fiction continues to this day, and the truth is, they have a point.  As of today, there is not a single court case that has established any significant coordinated effort to steal the election.  Every single case brought by Donald Trump and his compatriots either failed in court or failed to be considered by courts because of "standing" or some other technicality.  Now, however, three years later, with everything from Molly Ball's TIME magazine boast to Mollie Hemingway's brilliant Rigged to the poorly made but tantalizing 2000 Mules to the Twitter files, it's as clear as day to anyone with a functioning brain that the Democrats conspired with the rest of America's elite leftist cabal to steal the election, and succeeded.

Who's Responsible For Georgia's Disastrous 2020 Election?  Governor Kemp and Secretary of State (SOS) Raffensperger want Georgia voters to move on from the 2020 election.  Correspondence and official decisions made over the summer indicate the State Election Board (SEB) wishes the same.  While this may work for politicians and government officials, President Trump and 18 others, including Georgia voters, are under indictment for the 2020 election.  CNN reported that all are being charged with serious crimes that, if not disproven, could alter the course of their lives.  Some believe it is a witchhunt prompted by bitter disdain for the former President.  In any case, the charges make it exceedingly difficult for the indicted to leave 2020 behind unless they can prove the election resulted in anomalies and errors that should have rendered its certification a certifiable sham.  Several of the indicted were longstanding and earnest election officials who witnessed problems with tabulators and other election-related snafus.  When they investigated, they were doing their jobs.  However, it's not the way their actions are being portrayed.

Maricopa County Recorder to Testify in Kari Lake Lawsuit against County.  Next week could get interesting in Arizona.  Kari Lake (R) has a lawsuit to go to trial against Maricopa County relative to issues in the 2022 election, where she supposedly lost to Katie Hobbs (D) for governor.  The trial is set to be held September 25 and 26.  Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer (R) has been subpoenaed to testify to defend Maricopa County's mail-in ballot procedures and refusal to be transparent.  The County Recorder oversees mail-in voting operations, which appear to be manipulated to steal the election from Lake.

The plan to give all illegal aliens the right to vote.  [Scroll down]  The key here is the "state ID."  Biden plans to hand out photo ID's to illegals. [...] Then blue state Governors can decide to accept those holding these photo ID's as valid voters.  Illegal aliens will be able to neutralize the votes of American citizens- in particular, Republicans.  I ask you- in what country in Earth can you enter illegally, get financial support, stay in swanky hotels, get a photo ID and free i-phones and vote as an illegal?  Eventually this will marginalize all American citizens and destroy what it even means to be an American.

Federal Court:  There's Nothing Racist About Election Integrity Laws Like Florida's.  A full federal appeals court declined to take up Democrat groups' challenge of Florida's 2021 election integrity law on Thursday, marking a major win for Gov. Ron DeSantis and the GOP-controlled state legislature.  According to the Orlando Sentinel, Thursday's decision by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals "let stand an April ruling by a three-judge panel of the [court] that sided with the state on major issues in the case."  The 11th Circuit's April decision effectively overturned a prior ruling issued by U.S. District Judge Mark Walker — an Obama appointee — who baselessly claimed the law in question discriminated against black voters.  "What are the supposedly racist provisions that the district judge enjoined officials from enforcing?" Chief Judge William Pryor wrote of the court's Thursday decision.  "They are unremarkable, race-neutral policies designed to bolster election security, maintain order at the polls and ensure that voter-registration forms are delivered on time."

NY Governor Signs Cheat By Mail Bill, Is Immediately Sued As Violating NY Constitution.  [Scroll down]  The lawsuit was filed immediately upon Hochul signing it, and, it does violate the Constitution, as absentee ballots are only for voters with a medical or physical disability or proof they'll be out of their county of residence or New York City on Election Day.  They aren't for everyone.

Is the vote sacred, or just a formality?  One major factor in holding the Republic together is the vote.  If one disagrees with government policies, one can hope to remove that government at the ballot box. [...] But what happens when large portions of the public cease to believe that their votes count?  The 2020 election was fraught with irregularities, to say the least.  Even if one disbelieves that fraud was involved, competence is called into question.  There were photos of counting stations with large obstructions that prevented legally required observation of the process.  There is video of boxes of ballots being counted after — after — observers were expelled.  At least one precinct, in Detroit, counted more votes than were cast, all for Democrats.  One might argue that these and other items of evidence were falsely portrayed, but without an honest investigation, how would we know?  It is certainly reasonable to ask how it came about that the vote count on Election Night, which favored President Trump, was reversed only after midnight, and under dubious circumstances.

Report: Joe Biden's DHS Plans Photo ID Cards for Illegal Aliens Freed into U.S..  President Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is reportedly planning to give photo identification (ID) cards to border crossers and illegal aliens before they are released into the United States.  Leaked images of the photo ID cards for illegal aliens were first published by Adam Shaw at Fox News, showing space for the carrier's photo, a QR code, and information about the carrier, including name and age — similar to a driver's license or state-issued ID.  The ID cards, part of a DHS pilot program, could be used by Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents at airports or to access public benefits.

Ken Paxton's Tucker Carlson interview and Texas's Vichy Republicans' war against conservatives.  As you know, Ken Paxton is a conservative attorney general and he's been a thorn in the side of the Biden administration.  He's filed suit after suit against Biden's executive orders and, if he gets to court, he often wins.  In addition, within Texas, he's been fighting a valiant battle against election fraud.  Incidentally, Paxton thinks the big threat to America isn't voting machines.  Instead, it's mail-in ballots.  Mailing them to everyone makes it impossible to know who is returning those ballots or how many are honestly returned.  One would think that, in a red state like Texas, election fraud and other chicanery wouldn't be a problem.  However, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston are all hard left, and leftists control the election systems in those cities.  Paxton was trying to sue to correct fraud there and, when he got to court, he won.  So, the Karl Rove/Bush branch of the Republican party, via judicial fiat, stopped that.  In other words, between election fraud, corrupt politics, and open borders, Texas is heading for the blue side of the political spectrum and, once it does, the biggest bulwark against permanent Democrat power in D.C. is gone.

Lawsuit: Democrats' No-Excuse Absentee Voting Law Violates New York Constitution.  New York's new no-excuse absentee voting law violates its state constitution, a new lawsuit filed by a coalition of Republican groups and politicians alleges.  Filed on Wednesday by the Republican National Committee and other Republican-affiliated groups, the suit contends that a law signed by Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul "allow[ing] any registered voter in the state to cast an early ballot by mail" breaches the New York Constitution.  Under New York's top legal document, absentee voting is strictly reserved for qualified voters who may be "absent from the county of their residence" or "unable to appear personally at the polling place because of illness or physical disability."  The RNC alleges that New York's new voting law ignores this provision by permitting "qualified voters to vote by mail rather than in person, even if they do not satisfy either of the two limited exceptions set forth" in the state constitution.  "The Mail-Voting Law was enacted by the Legislature in open and knowing defiance of Article II, § 2, ignoring and subverting the will of the People whom the Legislature is supposed to represent," the lawsuit reads.

Presumed Rigged Until Further Notice.  [Scroll down]  The 2020 presidential election fraud deniers claim, without supporting proof, that there is no proof of "outcome-determinative" fraud.  As a matter of fact, a large number of videos, eye-witness testimonies, and statistical anomalies during the vote-counting process have been recorded, some of them readily available on the web.  Virtually none of the above has been factually disproved, or even investigated.  So, it is not unreasonable to question the "most secure election in history" claim.  But let's pretend that there is no unsightly evidence of "outcome-determinative fraud" hovering in the wings, waiting for a judge to permit it to enter the public legal record.  To my best knowledge, at the time of this writing, there has been no publicly-presented proof that there wasn't any "outcome-determinative" fraud.  Therefore, the bottom line is that, as of now, it is not known what happened.  In other words, President Trump's claims may be considered unproven at this time, but claims of his deniers also remain unproven.  And there is no factual and rational basis to award the deniers any benefit of doubt in this matter.

Democrat Mayoral Candidate John Gomes Files Lawsuit to Block Certification of Stolen Connecticut Primary Race.  On Monday, Democrat Mayoral candidate John Gomes filed a lawsuit challenging the results of his party's primary in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and requesting a new Democratic primary.  This comes after a video surfaced showing a Democrat clerk inserting illegal ballots into a drop box, which prompted an investigation by the Bridgeport Police Department for "possible misconduct."  The Gateway Pundit reported that Gomes' campaign released a [...] video on Saturday showing evidence of election fraud in the recent Bridgeport Democratic primary.  The video posted on Gomes campaign's Facebook page shows a woman dropping stacks of 'illegal' ballots into an absentee ballot box outside the Bridgeport government center, where the city's Registrar of Voters office is located, CT Mirror reported.

Maybe This Latest Blatant Ballot Box Stuffing Scandal Will Be the Last Straw.  Whether it's because they have no fear of consequence or because they really are that stupid, Democrat operatives regularly stuff ballot boxes in full view of cameras.  The pattern is nauseatingly familiar at this point:  First, Big Left's candidate comes from behind to win an election with a handful of mail-in or absentee votes.  Then, video, sworn testimony, and/or official complaints of ballot harvesting and ballot box stuffing emerge.  The matter is referred to law enforcement, which opens an investigation.  And then... nothing.  In the film "2000 Mules," rampant ballot harvesting — which is illegal in Georgia, one of the states featured in the film — was documented.  The matter was referred to Ga.  Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, whose office launched an investigation. "If Georgia's investigation into organized ballot harvesting leads to actual arrests and punishment, it will be a great day for America," I wrote at the time.  "We are all weary of lengthy investigations that go nowhere and accomplish nothing, but perhaps this time will be different."  LOL, it was no different.  Raffensberger declined to proceed without one of the film's producers, election integrity non-profit True the Vote, giving up the name of a confidential source, which they refused to do.  One source — out of the mountains of data and evidence the group provided — was the excuse for halting the investigation.

Voter Registration Charities:  A Massive, Overlooked Scandal.  "Nonprofit voter registration" doesn't sound interesting.  Yet nonprofit voter registration, or the use of tax-exempt charitable organizations to conduct and fund voter registration drives, is one of the most important and underreported political scandals of our time.  Nonprofit voter registration, and the get-out-the-vote (GOTV) activities that usually accompany it, have become the heart of a billion-dollar industry in America.  According to Candid's Foundation Funding for U.S. Democracy database, since 2011 nearly 60,000 grants have been made for "Voter Education, Registration, and Turnout" and "Civic Participation," benefitting 15,000 different organizations to the tune of $5.9 billion dollars.  Most of the largest grantors and grantees in this industry are left-leaning.  Despite IRS rules prohibiting 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit groups from engaging in partisan electioneering, it has long been an open secret that the purpose of their work is to register voters from favorable demographics in order to help get Democrats elected.  The voter registration industry has always retreated behind the fig-leaf of "nonpartisanship" when necessary, which has protected it from serious scrutiny.

Everything is automatic, to make it easier for illegal aliens to vote.
Pennsylvania Rolls out Automatic Voter Registration with Driver's Licenses.  Pennsylvania has become the latest state to roll out automatic voter registration when a citizen receives or renews their driver's license.  The move makes Pennsylvania the 24th state to implement automatic voter registration, NBC News reported. [...] Since 1993, Americans have been able to register to vote at a state motor vehicle agency.  And now in Pennsylvania, the process went from 19 screens of questions to 11 with automatic voter registration.

Evidence Shows Key Signatures Are Missing on Wayne County's 2020 General Election Certification.  The official narrative promoted by Michigan election officials has long been that Joe Biden defeated President Donald J. Trump in the 2020 General election in Michigan by 154,188 votes, thereby awarding Michigan's 16 electoral college votes to Joe Biden.  On the basis of this narrative, on July 18, 2023, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel indicted each of the alternate 16 Republican electors with eight felony counts, including forgery and conspiracy charges.  These charges hinge upon the assertion that the 2020 election was lawfully certified.  Was it?  Wayne County, MI, is the largest county by population in the State of Michigan.  According to the official Wayne County election records for the 2020 General Election, 597,170 votes were cast for Joe Biden and 264,553 for President Trump for a vote margin of 332,617 in favor of Biden.  If these votes were not lawfully certified, the statewide vote margin would flip to reveal a 178,429 margin of victory for President Trump in Michigan.

The 2020 Election Plot Thickens.  I have previously pointed out the craziness of the epistemic standard that is being deployed against Donald Trump in the election-interference cases.  The epistemic standard in question is the belief, or more precisely the assumption, universally shared by Trump's opponents, that it's unreasonable to believe that the 2020 election was stolen.  Here's an innocuous-seeming but flagrantly question-begging recent example from The Bulwark:  "The widespread conspiracy to overthrow the 2020 election, depicted in both the federal Washington, D.C. indictment and the Fulton County, Georgia indictment, was an attack on the foundations of the republic."  This is to assume what must be proved.  What must be proved, in order for the anti-Trump unreasonableness postulate to be justified (i.e., that it's unreasonable to believe the 2020 election was stolen), is the assumption that the election clearly was not stolen.

Democrat Produces Video Alleging Bridgeport Mayor Stole Election By Stuffing Ballot Boxes.  According to the Brookings Institution, "There is no evidence that mail ballots increase electoral fraud." USA Today purports to "fact check" the "False claim that mail-in voting is connected to bad actors, fraudulent ballots."  The Brennan Center for Justice informs us, "Extensive research reveals that fraud is very rare."  While it's important not to make claims about the existence of voter fraud you can't prove, what's also true is that nearly all of the analyses dismissing concerns about voter fraud and mail-in ballots rest on a logical fallacy:  The absence of evidence is evidence of absence.  In other words, the assumption is that voter fraud is not happening because there are very few criminal convictions related to voter fraud.  Republicans, however, have long contended that those governing the areas where voter fraud is most likely to occur — Democrat-run cities with a high density of votes — have no incentive to root out and prosecute voter fraud because they benefit from it politically.

On election fraud and mail-in ballots.  It seems intuitively obvious that mail-in ballots and drop boxes are a recipe for trouble.  Prior to 2020, that used to be a universally accepted concern.  Now the MSM and the Democrats want us to believe that such things are always highly secure — that is, unless the battle is Democrat to Democrat in Bridgeport.  Or unless the Republican wins, as in 2016.

Police Launch Investigation into Fraud After Video Evidence Uncovered of Town Clerk Dumping Multiple Illegal Absentee Ballots Into a Drop Box.  Mayoral candidate John Gomes' campaign released a damning video on Saturday showing evidence of election fraud in the recent Bridgeport Democratic primary.  The video has prompted an investigation by the Bridgeport Police Department for "possible misconduct."  The video on the Gomes campaign's Facebook page shows a woman dropping stacks of 'illegal' ballots into an absentee ballot box outside the Bridgeport government center, where the city's Registrar of Voters office is located, CT Mirror reported.  The Gomes campaign was able to identify the woman in the footage as Wanda Geter-Pataky, the Vice Chairwoman of the Democratic Town Clerk and a vocal supporter of incumbent Mayor Joe Ganim, who is seeking reelection.  Gomes' campaign claims that the video shows Geter-Pataky dropping off stacks of absentee ballots ahead of the September 12th primary.

Kari Lake Files 74-Page Lawsuit Against Katie Hobbs, Election Officials.  After 10 months of court battles over the 2022 election, Arizona Republican Kari Lake still has some fight left.  Lake has claimed that the election for governor, which she narrowly lost to Democrat Katie Hobbs, was tainted by misconduct that included malfunctioning election systems and improper signature verification of early voters' ballots.  She launched multiple efforts in Arizona's state court system to have the results overturned but has not been successful.  She filed her latest appeal of a court ruling that went against her in May, according to the Arizona Republic.  That appeal, which dealt with election issues in Maricopa County, was transferred to an appeals court based in Tucson.  Lake's opening brief in the case says there is new evidence to support her allegations.

The Dems' Big Lie.  'The big lie' is the phrase Democrats ironically have chosen to hang onto Trump's unwillingness to accept his 2020 election 'loss.'  Why is this choice ironic?  Two reasons.  First, Democrats also don't accept election results.  Second, Democrats lie.  First, Democrats, in 2004, challenged George W. Bush's victory by citing false and baseless conspiracy theories about voting machines.  They defend Hillary Clinton's refusal to accept her loss in 2016 based on a conspiracy theory that Russians stole her election.  Stacey Abrams continues to deny election result because of, she claims, a massive behind-the-scenes conspiracy to prevent blacks from voting.  Lying Democrats have attempted to block the election of every Republican presidential victor since 2000.  Second, lies are essential for Democrat success.  They'll therefore continue to push lies, misrepresentations, disinformation, and propaganda.

Nothing Adds Up in Fulton County: 17k Missing Ballot Images, 10 "Phantom" Tabulators That Account for 20k Votes.  [Scroll down]  In claim #2 above, based on evidence provided by officials they showed that the original count on November 3 was missing 20,713 ballot images and count-confirming tabulator tapes.  Furthermore, this count of 20,713 ballots came from ten Advance Voting tabulators that have no record of existing.  Open Records Requests were made for public documents explicitly regarding those ten tabulators, to which Fulton County responded they had "No such records."  This means that there are no poll tapes.  There are no daily status tapes.  There are no poll closing tapes.  They are not in the Logic and Accuracy testing logs.  They do not appear in the equipment distribution logs nor the machine pick-up logs.  They apparently don't exist.

The Paper Ballot is the Vote of Record.  The lifeblood of our American Republic is free and fair elections, and right now we're hemorrhaging profusely due to illegal elections by far-left fascists, but we can stop the bleeding of our rights and freedoms by restoring legal integrity into state and federal elections.  The validity of elections depends on the legal vote counts; sounds simple enough, right?  To get a legal vote count, election officials need to count the legal version of a voter's vote.  The legal version of the vote is what it is... it is the "vote of record."  The vote of record in elections will always be the historical document kept on file of a voter's original intent — the paper ballot.  If you follow simple logic and the codified law enforced in state and federal elections, counting the vote of record seems to make sense.  However, state, and federal elections have become needlessly complex due to the implementation of electronic voting systems into the voting process.

Expert to Arizona Legislature:  Kari Lake Would Have 'Won Easily' If Google Hadn't Interfered in the 2022 Election.  State Representative Alex Kolodin (R-Scottsdale), chair of the Arizona House Ad Hoc Committee on Oversight, Accountability, and Big Tech, held the first of a series of hearings last week investigating the impact of Big Tech's election interference.  The first half of the four-hour long session featured testimony by Harvard-educated academic Dr. Robert Epstein, who discovered how Google influences election results.  The second half consisted of testimony by First Amendment attorney James Kerwin of the Mountain States Legal Foundation, who discussed where the law is in regard to officials pressuring big tech about posts. [...] Kolodin said some presenters invited to speak at the hearing dropped out due to fear.  Epstein, whose speech was titled "The Impact of Big Tech's Election Interference and How we Can Stop it," admitted he voted for Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, said Google is the "biggest mind control engine that's ever been invented."

9th Circuit Court of Appeals Hears Kari Lake Vote Tabulator Case.  A lawsuit brought by former gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake prior to the 2022 elections was heard by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on Tuesday.  Lawyers representing Lake, Arizona Secretary of State Adrian Fontes (D), and Maricopa County were in court at the Sandra Day O'Connor U.S. Courthouse in Phoenix before a panel of three judges. [...] Andrew Parker, the attorney representing Lake, argued that the right to vote is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, providing Supreme Court cases as precedent and clarifying to the panel his position that vote tabulating machines in Maricopa County and Pima County were vulnerable, leaving votes open to be diluted or deleted from the system.  "The unreliable nature of what can occur when a malevolent actor intrudes into an election system and how the votes are being counted is what our complaint is all about," Parker told the judges.  He later added that Lake's complaint alleges such malevolent actors could gain access "to switch votes, to dilute votes, to add votes, to diminish votes, in an undetected way" and noted experts Lake's team interviewed to make the determination.

Competing Slates of Electors Have Happened Before.  Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and her leftist comrades moan about "Donald Trump's fake-electors scheme" as if it were a cutting-edge conspiracy concocted at his Mar-a-Lago compound in the wee small hours of the morning.  In fact, "fake electors" are neither new nor nefarious.  And they are not fake, either.  Believe it or not, a Congressional Research Service paper discusses how to proceed when a state sends to Washington two separate slates of presidential electors — as has happened in the past!

Police Report Verifies Law Enforcement Went Door-to-Door Confirming Fraudulent MI Voter Registration Ring.  A second police report, this time from the Muskegon Police Department, describes the rampant voter fraud in the 2020 election in Muskegon further confirms the accuracy of the Gateway Pundit reporting earlier this month.  On August 8th, the Gateway Pundit exclusively broke the news that a police report from the Michigan State Police showed that a major effort to fraudulently register over 10 [to] 12,000 voters in Muskegon, Michigan prior to the 2020 election was not only caught, but that the investigation into the well-funded and well-networked left-wing organizing group GBI Strategies was stalled by the FBI for three years.  This news answered the question about whether the 2020 election was the "most secure in history" as Americans have been told endlessly.

The Swamp Is Trying to Cancel Nearly 4.3 Million Votes.  During Donald Trump's norm-shattering 2016 campaign, he famously promised to "drain the swamp," referring to the concentration of power and the penchant for corruption among Washington's political elite and bureaucratic class.  The highlight of this effort was probably when Trump sacked FBI Director James Comey a few months after he became president, ostensibly for botching the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private server and leaked emails, though it was really an attempt by Trump — as he admitted — to quash the agency's investigation into frivolous claims of Russian election interference.  That decision was the tipping point in the events that led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel to continue the flawed Russia investigation, which we now know was initiated in response to claims fabricated by Hillary Clinton's campaign.  Although the investigation found no evidence of collusion between Trump's campaign and foreign sources, it crippled his administration for nearly two years, which might partly explain Trump's resistance to firing Anthony Fauci after it became apparent the policies he was pushing in response to COVID-19 were bogus.  Regardless, although the D.C. swamp has been exposed, the monsters living there want to let the American people know they're still in control, and now they're coming after Trump and anyone close to him with a vengeance.

Without a Proof.  A careful examination of articles posted in the so-called "mainstream" media reveals a telling bias.  All claims, including those made by President Donald Trump, that the official 2020 presidential election's results were invalid (that is, that without fraud, cheating, interference, and rigging, President Trump would have declared the winner) have been summarily dismissed — without meaningful in-depth analysis of all the evidence, witness testimonies, and observed statistical anomalies during the counting process — as "unproven."  But how can one prove that the 2020 presidential election was "stolen" (if it was "stolen"), when the courts mostly refused — based on such technicalities as a lack of standing of the plaintiffs or a lack of jurisdiction of the respective courts — to evaluate the presented evidence based on its merit, and FBI and other law-enforcement agencies mostly refused to seriously and thoroughly investigate numerous claims, supported with evidence and eye-witness testimonies, indicating wide-spread election fraud, cheating, and other significant "irregularities"?  It appears that those who had the authority to investigate complaints related to elections, and the so-called "mainstream" media, just did not want to see the voluminous evidence that might likely constitute the proof invalidating the official results of 2020 presidential election.

Kari Lake Releases Statement on Judge's Order Declaring Maricopa County's Election Procedures Unlawful.  Kari Lake released a statement yesterday, highlighting a recent court order related to Maricopa County's fraudulent signature verification and telling Americans she has the "utmost confidence" in her upcoming trial on September 21.  A Yavapai County judge last week rejected Defendants' Motions to Dismiss the Arizona Free Enterprise Club and Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections' recent lawsuit to prohibit the Arizona Secretary of State from enforcing illegal election procedures relating to mail-in ballot signature verification.  This ruling confirmed that Maricopa County has been conducting elections unlawfully.  The Judge ordered that "the language of the statute is clear and unambiguous," and the current procedures for verifying mail-in ballot signatures "do not have the force of law."

Arizona Court Rules Against State's 'Unlawful Signature Matching Process'.  The public interest group Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections declared it had secured a "massive win" for election integrity following a Friday Arizona court ruling in its favor.  In March, RITE sued Democratic Arizona Secretary of State Adrian Fontes arguing his office's Elections Procedures Manual violates the law regarding the mail-in ballot signature verification process.  "While state law requires county recorders to match mail-ballot signatures with signatures in the voter's 'registration record,' the Secretary instructed them to use a broader and less reliable universe of comparison signatures," the group said in a Monday news release.  "That means the Secretary was requiring ballots to be counted despite using a signature that did not match anything in the voter's registration record.  This was a clear violation of state law," RITE asserted.

Newly Discovered Michigan Election Corruption Parallels Georgia!  [Scroll down]  Eight known smurfs were used to "Follow The Money".  It was found that all 8 smurfs contributed money to DSCC (Democratic Senate Campaign Committee) and Biden Campaign which in turn paid for the services of GBI Strategies.  It was also found that all 8 smurfs contributed money directly to Michigan's Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Senator Warnock of Georgia and Senator Mark Kelly of Arizona.  All of the smurfs met the typical smurf definition of large total dollar amount of donations, large number of donations, small average donation and elderly with majority out of state.  The eight smurfs averaged giving $57,046.94 each with 9,325 donations each while only averaging $10.57 per donation.  The average age of the smurfs was 74 years old.  This precisely fits the M.O. of the established smurf impersonations by the persons or entities that have stolen these seniors identities for this illegal, illicit purpose.  The current working theory is that the FEC and/or ActBlue and or a consultant company known as GMMB are complicit in this money laundering that is believed to be over $200,000,000 and possibly into the billions!

Democrat County Supervisor Accuses Democrats of Rigging Primary After Discovering Massive Election Fraud.  Hinds County Supervisor David Archie accused his Democrat opponent of cheating during the recent primary election for County Supervisor.  Archie held a press conference Thursday where he announced he now has videotape of County Democrat Party Chairwoman Jacque Amous bringing thumb drives and ballots into the the counting room and inserting them in the ES&S machines.  David Archie told reporters he has photos of the cheating.  [Tweet with video clip]

Wisconsin Republican Senate Hold Historic Hearing on Appointing a New Administrator of Elections.  In what can only be described as "historic", the Wisconsin Senate Committee on Shared Revenue, Elections and Consumer Protection held an Informational Hearing on the consideration of the Wisconsin Election Commission's unanimous recommendation to nominate the current Administrator of Election to be reappointed for a new 4-year term to end on July 1, 2027, per Wisconsin State Statute 15.61. [...] Realizing that liberal progressive democrats were angling to break the law and to keep the current Administrator of Elections in place indefinitely, the Wisconsin State Senate unanimously passed SR 3 on June 28, 2023, to have the Senate follow the law per State Statute 15.61 and consider the nomination of the current Administrator of Elections for a new 4-year term to end on July 1, 2027.  There is no "vacancy" for the position of Administrator of Elections.  There is a recommendation of the Wisconsin Election Commission to the Wisconsin Senate to reappoint the current Administrator of Elections to a new 4-year term to end on July 1, 2027.

Michigan police memos raised concern about possible nationwide voter registration fraud scheme.  Michigan authorities suspected there was a possible voter registration fraud scheme occurring across multiple states during the 2020 election and were concerned enough to bring in the FBI, according to police memos reviewed by Just the News.  But what happened since remains mostly a mystery.  According to the dozens of pages of police reports from the Muskegon Police Department and Michigan State Police, a firm called GBI Strategies was under scrutiny as an organization central to alleged voter registration fraud in the 2020 presidential election, which was first investigated by city and state authorities before the FBI took over.  Contacts between local law enforcement and the FBI continued into 2022 but there is no evidence of what happened after that in the memos obtained by Just the News through state Freedom of Information FOIA requests.  Police from Michigan interviewed GBI Strategies employees there and cited specific instances of registrations that appeared suspicious or fraudulent, the memos show.  One State Police memo described the possible crime being investigated as "Election Fraud by Forgery."

The True Big Lie.  The entire case against Trump and his fellow defendants in the 2020 election-interference prosecutions can't even get off the ground unless it is more or less evidently true that the election was not stolen.  The fact of the matter is that it's not unreasonable to believe that the election was stolen, and consequently it isn't possible for it to be (more or less) evidently true that the election was not stolen.  That is why the case against Trump and his collaborators necessarily collapses, whether or not a corrupted legal system recognizes this.  There is no case against Trump and his confreres insofar as it's reasonable to believe that the 2020 election was stolen.  Trying to stop an apparently stolen election is what everyone should do.

Trump Co-Defendant Eastman:  If We Don't Fight Back, We Will Never Have a Fair Election Again.  Wednesday on FNC's "The Ingraham Angle," Trump co-defendant John Eastman argued efforts to focus on alleged wrongdoing during the 2020 election were justified.  Eastman told host Laura Ingraham those aligned with former President Donald Trump had to fight back or face the possibility of never having a "fair election" again.  "The answer is not to just, you know, take a powder and concede because then it will get worse on the next go around," he said.  "The answer is to fight it with everything we've got because what's at stake here is too important. [...]"

We Won't Be Fooled Again.  [Scroll down]  [The US government] has been busy surrendering the authority of all its other parts for years now, to the point that the whole enterprise is untrustworthy and in need of a severe housecleaning.  Traditionally, elections are the mechanism for cleaning that house, but our elections have lost their authority, too?  Really?  How so?  Because the untrustworthy officials in charge of them employ dubious systems for gathering the vote:  mail-in balloting that invites fraud and hackable vote-counting machines that are connected to the Internet.  The defects of these things are so obvious they can hardly be ignored.  And the remedy is obvious and simple, too:  paper ballots hand-counted in small precincts of manageable size, all done on one day, which we call Election Day (and which should be a national holiday, so more working people can get to the polls).  Somehow, though, we are unable to avail that remedy, probably because the untrustworthy people in charge would lose their jobs and the power they enjoy in a truly fair election.  So, they conclude, let's not have that.

Left Seizes Election Worker Training Organization.  A nonpartisan organization that trains election workers from across the country is now being run by two liberal voting activists — one who previously worked for the nonprofit that distributed hundreds of millions of dollars of Mark Zuckerberg's election grants during the 2020 elections.  The grants were supposedly to "help" local governments run elections, but most of the money went to election offices in Democrat-run localities.  Meanwhile, most board members of the National Association of Election Officials, commonly known as The Election Center, are current or former elections officials from heavily blue counties.  "Left-wing activists want to insert 'progressive' groups into our election machinery, making partisan actors a permanent part of how we count ballots in all future elections," Hayden Ludwig, director of public policy research at conservative advocacy group Restoration of America, told The Daily Signal.

The Establishment's 'Gallipoli Campaign' against the American People.  [Scroll down]  Then came the COVID-contorted, mail-in ballot — manipulated, fraud-filled 2020 election.  The stolen election was never as important as the all-out effort to humiliate and vilify Trump and dispirit his voters.  So they locked up J6 election protesters as political prisoners.  They labeled all political dissent as "disinformation."  They promoted Capitol Police lieutenant Mike Byrd for gunning down unarmed veteran Ashli Babbitt in cold blood.  They prosecuted anyone who questioned how a dementia-addled, child-sniffing, lifetime politician who had never been popular outside Delaware could have won fifteen million more votes than "rock star" Obama and more votes than any politician in U.S. history.  Destroying what is left of the "rule of law," corrupt political partisans posing as prosecutors now seek Donald Trump's lifetime imprisonment for the Establishment-engineered "crime" of refusing to consent to the ruling class's treachery.  How have Americans responded?  President Trump's popular support has only risen.

Georgia: TTV says They "Have the Goods" on State Voter Rolls in 2020.  Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips of True the Vote (TTV) believe they have the goods to prove that "Trump was right" about the 2020 election in Georgia.  Their work concerning the state's voter rolls allegedly proves that at the time of Raffenperger's Nov. 20, 2020 certification, there were, according to Engelbrecht, "364,000 ineligible voter records," of which approximately 67,000 actually voted in the 2020 election.  UncoverDC spent some time this week talking with Engelbrecht about TTV's investigation of Georgia's voter rolls.  Engelbrecht and Phillips both unequivocally believe Trump was justified in questioning Georgia's results during his Jan. 2, 2021, phone call with Raffensperger and others.  Ironically, Engelbrecht and Phillips appeared in court on Thursday in Fulton County to request the dismissal of their 2000 Mules lawsuit with the Georgia State Election Board (SEB) blocks away from where Trump would turn himself in because of his alleged "election interference" case.

Stop pretending this is normal.  The Constitution says we will have a national election in a bit more than a year.  That is one of the more certain things and even that is being questioned.  Pundits are pretending that the coming election will happen and that it will happen with all the normal ups and downs.  Polls are questionable in normal times.  Prognosticating the future can be done with some accuracy in normal times.  This is not a normal time.  This is a roller coaster in a freezing tornado:  Not normal.  It is like the weather, a coupled, nonlinear chaotic not normal system.  No prediction beyond the next sunrise is certain.  We are in a "hold tight and ride" mode and we do not know when this ride will end.  Maybe it will never end.

Was New York's 2022 General Election Valid?  I am a homeschool mother and dairy goat farmer in the state of New York.  After the 2020 election, I founded New York Citizens Audit, a miraculous grassroots team of over 2,000 New Yorkers that has spent tens of thousands of hours analyzing New York's voter rolls and election law.  The most stunning fact we discovered is that New York's 2020 general election was certified as accurate with 338,000 more votes counted than voters who voted.  338,000 votes are simply unaccounted for.  No one knows who cast them.  That number should be zero.

The FBI and Attorney General Nessel Hid These from the People of Michigan — Piles of Fraudulent-Manufactured Ballot Registrations from the 2020 Election.  Two weeks ago, The Gateway Pundit published our exclusive report on MASSIVE 2020 voter registrations fraud that our sources uncovered in Michigan.  The report included information on 8,000-10,000 fraudulent registrations and a police raid on a Democrat election registration group's office in October 2020.  The police found semiautomatic weapons, silencers, burner phones, bags of pre-paid cash cards, and blank registrations in a GBI Strategies' voter registration manufacturing center.  After several days Michigan Attorney General finally responded to our explosive investigation and confirmed our earlier reports.  We continue to hear back from individuals with intimate knowledge of this scandal.

Attorney John Eastman, When Asked if He Still Believes the 2020 Election Was Stolen, "Absolutely, No Question in My Mind" He Replies.  Constitutional lawyer Dr. John Eastman Esq is one of the nineteen co-defendants in the malicious lawsuit brought by Fulton County prosecutor Fani Willis.  Eastman appeared in Atlanta, Ga, today to turn himself in and assert his innocence.  Dr. Eastman gave direct, deliberate and non-pretending remarks to the assembled press pool at the courthouse, and when asked if he still believes the 2020 election was stolen, Dr. Eastman replied, "absolutely, no question, no question in my mind."  Dr. Eastman is looking forward to presenting evidence that will exonerate all the defendants in the case.  [Video clip]

The 2020 Election WAS Fraudulent — And GA GOP Leadership (Among Others) Are Complicit..  [B]y eliminating Border enforcement, the Biden Administration has embarked on what must be most sweeping flouting of law by any Administration in U.S. history.  And the most consequential.  I ask myself:  if they can do this to Immigration law, why wouldn't they have done this to election law?  And what about 2024?  For anyone not a rabid Democrat, late on election night November 3rd/4th 2020, the strong stench of fraud swirled across America: [...] I believe I have watched every Presidential election count to the death since 1968.  I cannot recall any with such a hiatus in counting/reporting, nor one with such decisive late reversals.  Very many others held the same opinion.  They would very likely have joined with President Trump in being suspicious.  This crucial subjective aspect has been largely memory-holed by the MSM.  This pattern of the Democrats almost invariably winning close protracted counts has become more glaring in recent years.

Did the CIA work to rig the 2020 election?  Not steal.  But rig as in distorting the political landscape.  A "rigged" election is not the same thing as a stolen election; stealing requires changing votes.  "Rigging" is about changing the rules, the information landscape, or other factors that can influence voters using illegitimate means.  Spreading misinformation can be a form of rigging, as of course censorship or "debunking" of true information.  I couldn't say if the 2020 election was stolen — there certainly were irregularities as there always are in elections — because any vote changes or illegal ballots have to be in the right place in the right numbers, and no evidence has been accepted by courts indicating that enough illegal votes to change the results were cast.  [Tweet]

How Charities Secretly Help Win Elections.  This investigation reveals the shocking true story of the Everybody Votes campaign — the largest and most corrupt "charitable" voter registration effort in American history — that may have decided the 2020 presidential election and could decide 2024.  Commissioned by Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, funded by the Democratic Party's biggest donors, and coordinated with cut-throat Democratic consultants, the Everybody Votes campaign used the guise of civic-minded charity to selectively register millions of "non-white" swing-state voters in the hopes of getting out the Democratic vote for a 2020 presidential win.  It worked.  Our exclusive research reveals how a little-known organization called the Voter Registration Project (VRP) leveraged connections with billionaire private foundations, Sam Bankman-Fried's mother, and foreign billionaires with a history of breaking U.S. election law to raise $190 million for the Everybody Votes campaign and register 5.1 million people.

Trump Can Prove It.  Establishment politicians and mainstream media have fought harder than on any other issue to convince the public that voter fraud is a conspiracy theory.  But unconstitutional changes to state election laws, unsupervised ballot drop boxes, voting machine errors, mathematically improbable voter turnout, and other examples of outright voter fraud that were denied a chance to be presented in court between the 2020 election and Biden's inauguration can't simply be chalked up as coincidental.  All those things occurring simultaneously make the fraud seem coordinated.  In response to the most recent indictments, Trump's attorneys indicated they finally have a platform to "fully re-litigate every single issue that occurred during the 2020 election," of which there were many.  The most important issue in America may finally get its due.

Georgia Election Workers Caught Jamming Stacks of Ballots Through Machines Multiple Times After Observers Removed from Building.  A new report released in June by the FBI concluded that the female and male Georgia Poll Workers who jammed stacks of ballots through voting machines numerous times on election night 2020 after observers were sent home — did nothing wrong!  According to the report that was recently released the "bulk of the investigation appears to have been conducted in December 2020 and January 2021, but both the State Election Board and the Georgia Secretary of State's office was backed up reviewing claims."  Here again is video of the election workers pulling hidden suitcases out from under a draped table, jamming the ballots through the machines multiple times.  It should be noted that this was not just happening at one table but according to The Gateway Pundit research the election workers were doing this at multiple tables.

Ukrainian Corruption Disqualifies Biden From Serving Another Term.  [Scroll down]  When Trump produced a vaccine years ahead of what had been thought possible and the country started to reopen, recourse was had to the amendment of voting and vote counting rules in the most closely contested large swing states, on the authority of Democratic governors or Democrat-dominated state courts and not the state legislatures as the Constitution requires.  This produced tens of millions of ballots which could not be verified and which were collected and cast by unidentified people and were not the ostensible voters whose ballots they delivered to improvised polling places.  In an election with 160 million votes where 50,000 flipped ballots in three swing states would have changed the outcome, and the courts declined to judge on their merits the 19 lawsuits brought contesting the legality of the voting and vote counting changes, Trump's enemies appeared finally to have disposed of the Trump phenomenon.  An air-tight media consensus has been imposed dismissing Trump's concerns about the elections, but at least half the country has its doubts.

Report Shows GBI Strategies as Part of Massive Left-Wing Dark Money Voting Operation by Democrats in 2020 Election.  The firm at the center of a three-year long voter fraud investigation is also featured in a report this week from the Capital Research Center, identifying the massive 'dark money' used to prop up Joe Biden's flailing 2020 campaign.  The firm, GBI Strategies, was paid millions in non-profit money to 'organize' voters for purposes that appear to be thinly-veiled campaigning.  Meaning that, left-wing billionaires routed money through non-profits to give to GBI Strategies, money that would be difficult to trace and would be spent affecting elections.

Trump And His Team Are Being Indicted In Georgia For Exposing Massive Election Fraud.  Georgia Fraud was the worst of all:
  2,056 felons illegally voted
  66,248 under 18 voted
  2,423 weren't registered at all
  1,043 used a PO Box
  4,926 voted past the reg. date
  10,315 died before the election
  395 voted in two states
  15,700 moved out of state
  40,279 changed county

Muskegon Cover-Up:  Gateway Pundit Investigators Find FBI Has Stalled Investigation and Silenced Officials, No Prosecutions in 3 Years.  Critical information for investigating the Muskegon Michigan voter fraud in 2020 is being illegally withheld from public review.  Investigating systemic voter fraud in the 2020 election in Muskegon requires examining the 8,000-12,000 likely-fraudulent voter applications submitted by Biden campaign-financed GBI Strategies in October 2020, but those files have been withheld from public review on the argument that they are part of an 'ongoing investigation' by law enforcement.  This tactic for evading FOIA at the state and federal level is well-known, but its use here to deny access to public records by removing them and not including a duplicate, is unique.  According to far-left Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, these admittedly false and fraudulent voter applications were never added to the voter rolls.  But no one can know for sure because the files themselves, in violation of state law, have been sealed and have been 'under investigation' by Nessel's office and the FBI for three years for a criminal case with no prosecutions.  There's no way to know whether a fraudulent application wasn't approved or later resubmitted in a less suspicious way in time to commit voter fraud in 2020.

The Democrats are Certain They Will Never be Held Accountable for the Trump Indictments and Biden Cover-Up.  The success of the Democrat cabal in unconstitutionally changing state voting laws, ballot harvesting and legalizing mass mail-in voting dramatically altered the voting landscape of this nation in 2020.  These steps together with the usual ballot fraud and manipulation by the Democrats in every election cycle resulted in the disputed and questionable win by Joe Biden.  In the wake of the 2020 debacle, many red states shored up their election laws and made changes to mail-in voting.  The blue states have done essentially nothing to ensure voting integrity.  Thus, the solid red states will remain Republican, and the solid blue states will remain Democrat.  Therefore, the 2024 presidential election will hinge on five battleground states:  Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

Trump's Georgia Indictment is the Final Proof the 2020 Election Was Stolen.  The 2020 election was stolen.  The debate is over.  How do I know?  Because both the feds and Georgia just indicted our President for talking about, questioning, and trying to investigate a stolen election.  When the communist thugs, bullies and tyrants make it a crime to question a stolen election, in a country built around free speech, it's 100% proof they stole the election.  There is a perfect precedent.  In the NFL.  The game was called "The Miracle in the Meadowlands."  Everything about that fixed game reminds me of the 2020 stolen election.  It's a perfect match.

Michigan State Police Officer Confirms that GBI Strategies Is Operating in Numerous States.  As previously reported at The Gateway Pundit[,] Democrat operatives were caught in October 2020 in Muskegon, Michigan, a city of 38,000, dropping off 8,000 to 10,000 fraudulent voter registrations in a single drop.  Many with the same handwriting and fake addresses.  Police investigated and found guns with silencers, burner phones, rental cars, and temporary businesses where registrations were stored.  All of these efforts were funded by Democrat campaigns to GBI Strategies.  The firm in Muskegon was not only filling in bogus registrations by the thousand but they were also sending packages of registrations to nearby communities.

Ballot Harvesting and Election Integrity in Michigan.  The world of U.S. election fraud tactics changed forever — in the most fundamental of ways — last week with the Gateway Pundit publication of the alleged 2020 Michigan ballot manufacturing factory.  Days later, the Michigan Secretary of State confirmed that indeed this event did take place, adding a little different spin — the system caught this fraud before it impacted an election.  Interesting that now, three years later, an admitted massive election fraud event did occur — yet not one person has been jailed.  Not one prosecuted.  Not one indicted.  Crickets!  One would think Michigan would have announced such a "catch."  But no, only diligent citizens who dug out a State Police report that would otherwise have lain dormant — forever.  Anyone who now believes Republicans will win 2024 ballot harvesting, while leftists can print new ballots in the basement, is delusional. [...] The election integrity world is different today because the Gateway Pundit outed an official 2020 Michigan State Police report with all the pertinent info.  As sleuths dug in, they found this ballot manufacturing scheme tied to an entity, GBI, operating in 20 states.  Fake, pre-printed ballots by the thousands.  Fake addresses, guns, gift cards.

Muskegon: Who says 'heroes are hard to find?  Muskegon, Michigan's city clerk, Ann Meisch, is a hero.  She noticed something odd about a woman dropping over 8,000 completed voter forms at the city clerk's office and did something about it.  She made a phone call to the Muskegon Police Department and asked them to investigate.  The result is an unfolding story that has uncovered an election fraud ring operating across the country. [...] Meisch, who has worked in city clerk offices for 33 years, noticed that "...in her opinion a quantity of the voter registration forms were highly suspicious and possibly fraudulent... numerous forms appeared to have been completed by the same writer and upon initial examination, addresses on multiple forms were invalid or non-existent."

What Did Michigan Just Hand Over to the FBI?  With Donald Trump's fourth indictment looming and more tidbits dropping about the emerging Biden bribery scandal, I can see why this development in Michigan fell through the cracks.  It's a story that the Left doesn't want to talk about in their news coverage: voter integrity.  It would appear as if the FBI will be taking over a Michigan investigation into 2020 voter fraud in which thousands of fraudulent voter registrations were discovered. [...] Not to be a wet blanket, but this won't remove Biden from office, nor will the FBI take this seriously.  They're too busy covering their tracks over their interference in the Hunter Biden investigations.  Yet, the case does speak to the more significant need for laws that enhance the security of our elections.  Voter integrity provisions are popular, including voter ID laws.  Notice how the latter has evaporated from the Left's grievance list.

nationwide cellular network connects election equipment and gives federal government access to election systems at the precinct level.  A growing majority of Americans know the 2020 election was fraudulent.  Many analysts who have been studying election integrity have concluded that there had to be a two-way connection between local election electronics (electronic poll pads, tabulators, election management systems, voter databases, etc.) and a centralized data collection system responsible for monitoring and manipulating the election.  Fingers have rightly been pointed at all-inclusive election management software, the Albert Sensor system, Scytl and Edison, and the Election Infrastructure Information Sharing and Analysis Center (EI-ISAC).  This incestuous collaboration between the Department of Homeland Security, the Election Assistance Commission, leftist/globalist funding, foreign companies, and their private partners, allowed for the real-time monitoring of all election data, and more importantly, the ability to change the results.

6 Reasons Why Computers Should Not Be Used in Elections.  Dr. Walter Daugherity sits down to talk about his 6 reasons why computers should not be used in elections.  He also talks about how local election officials could not detect attacks, even with L&A tests or audits.  Dr. Walter C. Daugherity is a computer consultant and also Senior Lecturer Emeritus in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University.  He graduated from Oklahoma Christian University with a degree in mathematics, and then earned master's and doctor's degrees from Harvard University, which he attended on a Prize Fellowship from the National Science Foundation.  As a computer expert he has consulted for major national and international firms, and for government agencies.  He helped develop the national computer keyboard standard and invented integrated user training within computer applications as well as various electronic computer interfaces.  [Video clip]

How Can Mail-In Voting Be 'Secure' When Postal Theft Is Rampant?  Democrats' deceptive talking point that universal mail-in voting is completely "safe" and "secure" is collapsing as postal theft becomes rampant throughout the country.  Within the last week alone, CBS News Chicago released several articles detailing a series of incidents involving mail theft and crime throughout the Windy City.  On July 31, for instance, the outlet reported blue drop-off mailboxes in Frankfort and Orland Park "were cut open by thieves," with local law enforcement advising residents to "monitor their financial accounts or credit profiles for fraudulent activity."  On the same day, CBS News Chicago revealed it obtained data from the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) purportedly showing that the agency "hadn't been keeping track of arrow key thefts until 2021" and "hadn't made a single arrest for an arrow-key-related theft between 2020 and March 2023."  For context, arrow keys are used to open blue drop-off boxes and larger mailboxes found in apartment complexes or condos.  An official with the U.S. Postal Inspectors, USPS's law enforcement arm, claimed he felt such information "might not be 100 percent correct."  CBS News Chicago also released two additional articles in the following days detailing other mail-related crimes in the city.  But Chicago is hardly the exception.

Four weird U.S. drinking laws.  [#3] Alaska Requires Sobriety on Election Day:  Alaska bans the sale of alcohol on election day until the polls close.  It's one way to encourage as many people as possible to vote.  In addition to prohibiting alcohol sales on election day, it's illegal in the state to be inebriated at any establishment that sells alcohol.  It's also against the law for bars to sell alcohol at a reduced rate unless it is applicable all week.

What Is the Solution to Save US Elections?  Mike Lindell to Reveal His Plan on Thursday.  This week in Springfield, Missouri, entrepreneur and American icon Mike Lindell, known to many as the "My Pillow Guy", will unveil the solution to save America.  Lindell has worked tirelessly for many months since the 2020 Election with many concerned citizens across the country to ensure that US elections going forward are free and fair.  Lindell's "Election Summit" will take place on Wednesday and Thursday in Springfield, the site of last year's event.  Many Americans from across the country will be there to participate and to take in the information shared. [...] The event will also include a number of election experts and local patriots who have worked tirelessly across the country to ensure the next election is not stolen like in 2020.

Anomalies in Vote Counts and Their Effects on Election 2020.  In the early hours of November 4th, 2020, Democratic candidate Joe Biden received several major "vote spikes" that substantially — and decisively — improved his electoral position in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia.  Much skepticism and uncertainty surrounds these "vote spikes."  Critics point to suspicious vote counting practices, extreme differences between the two major candidates' vote counts, and the timing of the vote updates, among other factors, to cast doubt on the legitimacy of some of these spikes.  While data analysis cannot on its own demonstrate fraud or systemic issues, it can point us to statistically anomalous cases that invite further scrutiny.  This is one such case:  Our analysis finds that a few key vote updates in competitive states were unusually large in size and had an unusually high Biden-to-Trump ratio.  We demonstrate the results differ enough from expected results to be cause for concern.  With this report, we rely only on publicly available data from the New York Times to identify and analyze statistical anomalies in key states.  Looking at 8,954 individual vote updates (differences in vote totals for each candidate between successive changes to the running vote totals, colloquially also referred to as "dumps" or "batches"), we discover a remarkably consistent mathematical property:  there is a clear inverse relationship between difference in candidates' vote counts and and the ratio of the vote counts.  (In other words, it's not surprising to see vote updates with large margins, and it's not surprising to see vote updates with very large ratios of support between the candidates, but it is surprising to see vote updates which are both).

No US Presidential Election in 2024?  In January 2023, US special counsel Jack Smith applied for and received a subpoena for Twitter, specifically for all of Donald Trump's utterances at the site through the years, including the ones he may have never published.  Note: the subpoena came long after Trump left Twitter. [...] Trump left Twitter (was cancelled) on Jan 8 2021, Elon Musk bought it on October 27 2022, and renamed it "X" in late July 2023.  Just so we get our horses and dogs in line.  Special counsel Jack Smith received his Twitter/Trump subpoena with the added provision that it had to be entirely secret, not even Twitter or Trump could know.  US District Court Judge Beryll Howell gave Smith what he wanted, agreeing that if Trump's years-old Twitter past was known, he would become a flight risk.  But both Smith and Howell knew this was absolute nonsense.  Not only is Twitter the last place you turn to when you have nefarious secrets to hide (it's the opposite!), but the man is running for President[...]!  And because of some 5 year old (or so) tweets he would pack in the family and disappear to an (underground) bungalow on Vanatua, never to be heard from again?  I would put this down as the moment when it became impossible for the US to have a presidential election in 2024.  We've had some 8 years of this anti-Trump circus now, non-stop, Hillary, Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Robert Mueller, yada yada yada, but I don't think we've reached the point before where the elections might as well be cancelled.  We're there now though.  And that is a BIG point.  We've let it come far too far.

Biden Won In 2020 The Same Way Soviet Basketball Won Gold In 1972.  Corporate media are returning to their favorite question to ask of any and all Republicans who care about the integrity of elections:  Did Joe Biden win the 2020 election?  A New York Times employee asked Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis the question in Iowa last week.  NBC News correspondent Dasha Burns asked a variant of the question, to which DeSantis gave an extended reply about the proper and improper way to run elections.  Completely uninterested in his substantive reply, she followed it up with: "Yes or no, did Trump lose the 2020 election?"  The question is never asked in good faith, and you can know that with certainty because none of these reporters even came close to asking it from 2016-2020 when the entirety of the Democrat Party refused to accept the legitimacy of Donald Trump's election.  In fact, they eagerly and actively participated in the Russia-collusion information operation designed to overturn the results of that election.  Hillary Clinton was claiming the 2016 election was stolen throughout 2019, and the media generally cheered her on.  But if you need help understanding why the question is never asked in good faith, let's step out of the realm of politics for a minute and consider the men's gold medal basketball game of the 1972 Olympics.

MI AG Dana Nessel Confirms 8,000 to 10,000 Suspected Fraudulent Registrations Delivered to Muskegon Clerk October 2020.  Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel on Thursday confirmed that 8,000 to 10,000 suspected fraudulent registrations were delivered to Muskegon City Clerk prior to the 2020 election.  The far-left Detroit News reported on this latest development on Thursday after reporting by The Gateway Pundit earlier this week.  A redacted police report describes how Muskegon City Clerk Meisch encountered a woman dropping off 8,000 [to] 10,000 completed voter registration applications.  The Gateway Pundit reported that the "registrations included the same handwriting, non-existent addresses, and incorrect phone numbers."  An investigation found that the woman worked for GBI Strategies.  GBI Strategies was funded by dark money super PAC 'BlackPAC,' which paid them $11,254,919 to register voters for Joe Biden.

Why we can say, conclusively, the 2020 vote was rigged.  The Chinese Communist Party, Joe Biden's bankers, have become more than a suspect in the 2020 debacle.  They have been caught red-handed and could do the same in FUTURE elections.  As WND reported exclusively this week, the Chinese-owned company Konnech has signed contracts with 32 major American cities to perform "election services."  By being a part of U.S. election administration, Konnech already has far more details about the people they work with than any American company could acquire legally.  With the assets they have, they could throw any election in the U.S. starting in 2024.  Now, who do you think they are likely to throw the vote to — Joe Biden or Donald Trump?  FBI agents were looking into it through a counter-surveillance sting investigation with True the Vote but were stopped by the brass when the probe landed on their desk.  Thank you once again, Chris Wray.

Will Dems mysteriously turn red Iowa blue?  Bet on it.  The Wall Street Journal this week ran a compelling story entitled, "Why Democrats Lost Iowa," pointing out that Iowa was a "key state that helped elect Barack Obama president."  It observes, "Iowa was once a center of gravity for both political parties during presidential elections and a key swing state.  In recent years it has turned so red that Democrats have little political power in the state and the party's candidates have few reasons to go."  No doubt, Democratic Party leaders read the story and reached the same conclusion about the suddenly red, inconvenient flyover state.

You'll Never Guess Where the Headquarters of the Multimillion Dollar GBI Strategies LLC Is Located.  GBI Strategies LLC, the firm connected to the police report that was covered up in Michigan since before the 2020 Election, has multi-millions flowing through its books and yet it's [sic] reported headquarters is a house. [...] On October 8, 2020 a person dropped off between 8,000-10,000 completed voter registration applications in Muskegon, Michigan.  City Clerk Ann Meisch obviously noticed.  Per a review of the voter applications, it was uncovered that:
  •   numerous forms appeared to have been completed by the same writer
  •   addresses on multiple forms were invalid or non-existent
  •   phone numbers were erroneous
  •   signatures didn't match

Guns, Burner Phones and Fake Registrations — The Buried Michigan Voter Fraud Scandal.  On October 8, 2020, only one month before the 2020 general election, Muskegon, MI City Clerk Ann Meisch noticed a black female, whose name was later redacted from the police report, dropping off between 8,000-10,000 completed voter registration applications at the city clerk's office.  Clerk Meisch immediately noticed that the stacks of registrations included the same handwriting, non-existent addresses, and incorrect phone numbers.  The Muskegon Police Department was contacted and asked to investigate.  On 10/21/20 First Lieutenant Mike Anderson was contacted by Tom Fabus, Chief of Investigations for Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel's Office.  According to the MI State Police report, Fabus asked for Michigan State Police assistance with a joint investigation of alleged voter fraud being conducted by the Muskegon Police Department and the AG.  An investigative task force was formed, and an investigation was initiated.  During their investigation, the state police discovered the women worked for GBI Strategies.  This was included in their police report.  The group had temporary offices in numerous Michigan locations.  The police also identified Gary Bell as the head of the organization.

A Modest Proposal to Defeat the Political Class.  Our political process has had the pungent stench of partisanship and self-dealing for too long.  From the Chicago political machine to the White House Plumbers, from election shenanigans to measures undertaken in the name of a Covid-19 "emergency," most Americans realize our political processes have been corrupted.  Marxist policies and progressivism are layered over our old politics, further suppressing two of the most important identities Americans, regardless of political beliefs, have historically had in common — a strong sense of national unity, and a belief in the sacredness of the election process.  (The death of free and fair elections comes with endless long voting).  Can't we all agree that it is in our national interest to count the vote on election day?  Who could be against that?  (Massive voting by mail could be tied to the undoing of our country.)  If they have nothing to hide, then why not fix this unnecessary and divisive fear for millions of us for the sake of national unity?  This is the nexus for many conservatives who rightfully don't trust Democrat marionettes, because we know there's a puppet master behind the curtain.

Fake ballots in Michigan.  Muskegon, MI City Clerk Ann Meisch is a hero.  She noticed something odd about a woman dropping over 8,000 completed voter forms at the city clerk's office and did something about it.  She made a phone call to the Muskegon Police Department and asked them to investigate. [...] Information was sent to the FBI, which did nothing.  "The FBI failed to follow-up on the alleged election crimes according to Michigan election investigator Phil O'Halloran... the Election Integrity Chair of the Michigan Republican Party."  The Michigan State Police continued to investigate and issued a report that detailed a widespread and well-funded effort to create fake registrations and absentee ballot forms.  It "names 'GBI Strategies' as the organization engaged in what O'Halloran claims is widespread, systemic voter fraud.  The Tennessee group is heavily connected to the Biden campaign and various Democrat campaign committees."

Newly-unearthed memo lays out 'controversial' strategy for Trump to overturn 2020 election: report.  A previously unknown internal memo drafted by a lawyer allied with former President Donald Trump outlines a plan to overturn the 2020 election using fake slates of electors, according to a report.  The lawyer, Kenneth Chesebro, admitted that he was proposing "a bold, controversial strategy" that the US Supreme Court would "likely" reject, according to a copy of the Dec. 6, 2020, memo obtained by The New York Times.  Still, he argued, it would focus attention on alleged voter fraud and buy the campaign time "to win litigation that would deprive Biden of electoral votes and/or add to Trump's column," the paper reported.  Prosecutors say the missive — which was discovered during Trump's third indictment last week — is a critical link to show how Trump and his allies' plot morphed into a criminal conspiracy, the Times reported.  It lays out Chesebro's plan to have false Trump electors cast their electoral votes on Dec. 14.

Michigan State Police Discover Widespread 2020 Voter Fraud and Turn Over Evidence to FBI — Who Apparently Did Nothing.  Stunning discovery being shared by Gateway Pundit about a network of massive ballot fraud and voter registration fraud in Michigan as a result of a city clerk notifying local police.  The investigation uncovered a multi-state voter registration operation and the details within the state police report are quite remarkable.

Massive 2020 Voter Fraud Uncovered in Michigan — Including Estimated "800,000 Ballot Applications Sent to Non-Qualified Voters".  On October 8, 2020[,] only one month before the 2020 general election, Muskegon, MI City Clerk Ann Meisch noticed a black female (whose name was redacted from the police report), dropping off between 8,000-10,000 completed voter registration applications at the city clerk's office.  The Muskegon Police Department was contacted and asked to investigate.  On 10/21/20 First Lieutenant Mike Anderson was contacted by Tom Fabus, Chief of Investigations for Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel's Office.  According to the MI State Police report, Mr. Fabus asked for Michigan State Police assistance with a joint investigation of alleged voter fraud being conducted by the Muskegon Police Department and the AG.  An investigative task force was formed, and an investigation was initiated. [...] The Muskegon city clerk became suspicious when the female, (whose name is redacted in the first part of the police report, but then later, is unredacted), hand-delivered thousands of voter registrations to her office, many of them in the same handwriting.

A New Day, a New Type of Election Fraud.  [Scroll down]  Meet the "shape shifters."  The excellent Wisconsin team, with whom we collaborate, found citizens who moved from all over the state to a single state rep district for a primary.  They moved a couple of months before the election.  They all voted.  Now the good part.  They moved back shortly after the election — to their original homes!  Now that's an artifact.  From that artifact, the Fractal team creates a query we can now run in any election in any county in America — testing for people who left one address, moved to a district with a tight election, voted, then moved back to their same address in less than X months.  This is particularly powerful in stopping leftists from jacking with school board elections.  This organized fraud variant — now called shape shifters — likely existed for decades, but one diligent team found it, and now if it ever happens again, Fractal finds it, reports it, makes it public.

America and the Common Characteristics of Authoritarian Regimes.  [#1] Rigged Elections:  Dictatorial regimes are aware that the world looks upon them with consternation due to their repression of the citizenry.  Hence, they stage periodic elections where the result is predecided.  The leader anointed by the establishment always wins with an unprecedented majority.  To achieve this landslide victory, ballot boxes are stuffed, counting is rigged, electronic voting machines are tampered with, opposition candidates are baselessly smeared, voting rules manipulated to facilitate easy rigging, and neutral observers are banned.  In North Korea, voting is mandatory, but you receive a ballot paper with just one name on it.  There's nothing to fill in, no boxes to tick.  You put the paper into the ballot box.

Infographic: Summarizing the Allegations of Vote Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.  Former President Trump has asserted that the results of the 2020 election were tainted by several factors.  As a result, the Biden administration's special counsel indicted Trump for expressing his concerns.  Aside from large-scale Democrat funding operations (e.g., "Zuckerbucks"); state Supreme Courts unconstitutionally altering the methods, times and places for voting; etc., there are additional and noteworthy allegations.  The following infographic summarizes the election-rigging claims. [...]

Arizona RINOs Vote AGAINST Hand Counting Ballots, Say Election Integrity Too Expensive.  "Republican" officials in Mohave County, Arizona have voted down proposals to strengthen election integrity by hand-counting ballots in 2024.  They claim that secure elections would be an unaffordable indulgence.  The Board of Supervisors for the county — comprised entirely of so-called Republicans — decided not to swap dubious machine counting for a traditional hand count by three to two, with one of those who voted against the proposal, Supervisor Travis Lingenfelter, saying that "the first thing that we have to do in Mohave County in good conscious [sic] is to balance the budget."

Desperation Creeps In.  So, the best they could do was to charge Mr. Trump with objecting vocally to an election that looked as rotten as Hunter's uncapped teeth?  We all saw what happened overnight November 3 and 4, 2020:  what the numbers looked like in the swing precincts at midnight and the magic mathematics that swapped tens of thousands of votes over from the Trump column to the Biden column (say, whu?) ... the shutdown of the Fulton County State Farm Arena due to a supposedly leaking toilet and the ensuing monkey business with rolly-bags full of ballots under the tables captured by the closed-circuit cameras... the miraculous wee-hour harvest of ballots in Milwaukee... US Postal Service truck full of completed ballots out of Bethpage, Long Island, that turned up in Philadelphia... Mark Zuckerberg's $419-million-dollar operation using two front orgs, the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) and the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR) to staff precinct election boards with party shills and buy votes... the thumb drives and modems in the vote-counting machines....  Special Counsel Jack Smith may find it difficult to prove that expressing an opinion about all that is some kind of crime.  Meanwhile, he's turned Mr. Trump into the poster boy for the many other aggrieved victims of a government weaponized against its own people.

Mississippi's ban on felons voting is struck down... for now.  Last year, activists in Mississippi began an effort to prevent the state's Secretary of State from enforcing a provision in the state constitution that permanently prohibits people convicted of certain felonies from voting.  Republican Attorney General Lynn Fitch rejected the request and the matter was sent to the courts.  Yesterday, a three-judge panel from the Fith Circuit Court ruled in favor of the activists and ordered Fitch to stop enforcing the rule because they declared that it violates the cruel and unusual punishment clause in the federal Constitution.  It was a narrow, 2-1 decision and Fitch is planning to ask the full circuit court to reconsider the ruling as soon as possible.  But if this decision stands, it could have an impact on the upcoming elections.

The Left's Election Litigation Racket Abuses Democracy To Line Their Own Pockets.  In April, the Democratic Party announced it would no longer use its longtime lawyer Marc Elias, and now we know why.  The Democrats got tired of losing, or as Axios put it, Elias' approach often "backfired."  Elias himself does not tire of losing, and here's why.  His lawsuits — parading as a fight for "democracy" by tearing down voter ID, secure drop boxes, and signature matching — have nothing to do with our nation's interests.  Instead, as Elias' allies admitted to Axios, his work is nothing more than "a political strategy that is actually a business strategy," one that lined his pockets with roughly $20 million in revenue from just two clients during the 2020 election, all while generating crazed headlines about Republicans.

Still Doubting the 2020 Election.  NBC is reporting — with a supposed sense of shock — the results of a Monmouth poll that nearly one-third of Americans think the 2020 presidential election was rigged.  And they further reiterate that there is no evidence for fraud.  ["]There's no evidence widespread fraud affected the outcome of the 2020 election, but Trump and allies have spent years undercutting the election's legitimacy.["]  Wow!  It must be so.  The main stream media assure us that the election was honest.  Yet one third of Americans still believe the election was a fraud.  I am shocked, shocked.  Anyone who questions the election result is called a fascist or subjected to a lawsuit or prosecution.  So for the moment, we will not question the integrity of write-in ballots, nor the security of voting machines — to avoid pernicious litigation.  Let us just look at the official results[,] from the official federal government figures.
  In 2016, Donald Trump got 62,984,828 votes, while in 2020, he got 74,223,975 votes — an increase of 11,239,147.
  In 2016, the Democrats got 65,853,514 votes, while in 2020, the Democrats got 81,283,501 votes — an increase of 15,429,987.

Ron DeSantis Effectively Ends His Race for President — Says "Theories" by Donald Trump about 2020 Election Being Stolen Were "Unsubstantiated".  According to a FOX News poll in December 2021, 78% of Republicans believed the 2020 election was stolen.  At least 70% of Republican voters still believe Joe Biden's win was illegitimate, according to a recent poll this week by far-left CNN.  In January 2022, only 17% of Republicans and right-leaning independent voters said they would vote for a candidate that believes Joe Biden won the 2020 election.  On Friday, Governor Ron DeSantis said that the theories by President Trump about the 2020 election being stolen were "unsubstantiated."

The State Farm Late Night Ballot Stuffing Video Was NOT Debunked.  We all know the story, election officials announced they would shut down counting early on election night.  The counting room was then cleared of all election observers and local media reporters.  Then several minutes later, after the room was emptied, at least five election workers entered the counting room, dragged a seemingly hidden suitcase of ballots out from under a table, and began counting ballots again and apparently shoving stacks of ballots through the machines numerous times.

Truth, Accuracy, and Election Fraud.  Examples in the DOJ document abound regarding conduct that constitutes federal election fraud.  A pivotal "Achilles heel" moment occurs at the moment of certification, when the election official attests to the accuracy and legal compliance of the election.  If results are later proven to be inaccurate, the following claim is valid, regardless of "intent":  ["]Malfeasance by election officials acting "under color of law" by performing such acts as diluting valid ballots with invalid ones (ballot-box stuffing), rendering false tabulations of votes, or preventing valid voter registrations or votes from being given effect in any election, federal or non-federal (18 U.S.C. §§ 241, 242), as well as in elections in which federal candidates are on the ballot (52 U.S.C. §§ 10307(c), 10307(e), 20511(2)).["]  The appalling inaccuracy of the nation's voter rolls is not a clerical error, as election officials would have us believe.  It is an offense.

How Did the Dems Win in 2020?  The problem here is that there is no way to definitively know the answer without meaningful (forensic) post-election audits in key states.  This is one of the main reasons why the Left has resisted such audits.  The disturbing reality is that zero states have meaningful (forensic) post-election audits!  None.

Errors found in Fulton County 2020 election audit:  Georgia investigation.  Multiple errors occurred during the audit of Fulton County's 2020 presidential election, according to a consent order approved by the Georgia State Election Board.  "Human error" was the cause for mistakes in the audit, according to state investigators, as the process required paper ballots being sorted by candidate, hand-counted totals being written on paper and then transcribed into computers.  The Atlanta Journal-Constitution obtained the consent order and investigative files through a public records request.  The outcome of the audit wasn't changed by the finding, which still showed Joe Biden receiving more votes than then-President Donald Trump.  The State Election Board approved the consent order June 21, when it also decided to not replace the county elections board, after considering taking it over.

Beware the 'Long Count'.  We need little data to analyze the results of the 2020 Presidential election and the 2022 Arizona Gubernatorial election.  We have been so propagandized that it is as easily recalled by Americans as Mao's little red book is for the Chinese.  Though barely campaigning, unable to speak, and drawing massive crowds, measured in dozens, waving to nobody, on the rare occasions when he was able to muster the energy to leave his basement, Joe Biden remarkably received the most votes of any candidate in US history.  However, his historic popularity notwithstanding, his debatable victory nevertheless still required eking out miraculously close races in the hyper-partisan Democrat strongholds of Atlanta, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Las Vegas, each of which employed the Long Count.  The Long Count is defined as counting votes well past election day.  Long Counts took place in these cities (and others) because, said the Democrats, "every vote must be counted," even though, in many jurisdictions, early voting was available for months prior to election day on November 3, 2020.  Even with modern technology, for some reason, 21st-century Americans are unable to count votes, even over a period of two months, so we now also count votes well past election day.

Forensic Study Into 2020 Detroit, Michigan Election Finds Up to 34,000 Illegal Ballots.  A national expert in criminal forensics completed a report into the 2020 election in Michigan and has found further evidence of chronic, systemic, voter fraud especially among absentee ballots in that challenged election.  The firm is Speckin Forensics and they have wide national experience testifying in criminal trials.  Through their investigation where they were allowed limited access to the 2020 ballots in Wayne County which covers Detroit, they found:
  •   A significant number of absentees in different precincts illegally had no signed ballot application.  Many absentee ballots had no request whatsoever, in the two primary precincts examined the rates of illegal ballots were 12% and 20%.
  •   Absentee ballots often had a lighter tone and shade to the printing.  The Detroit clerks even commented to the Speckin team that the type of paper felt different.
If the numbers of absentees missing a ballot request are extrapolated out to the rest of Wayne County, Speckin reports, "with approximately 170,000 AV ballots, the range at 8%-20% would be 13,600 to 34,000 ballots with no application requesting the ballot."

US election officials are quitting at an alarming rate.  The first job many people take out of college usually doesn't come with a lot of responsibility.  Adam Byrnes's first job is to make sure democracy works in a critical US swing state.  Before graduating with a political science degree from Emory University, Byrnes, 21, applied to be the director of elections for Swain county, a mountainous region of about 14,000 people in western North Carolina.  He was offered the job before he had a diploma in hand and started at the end of May.  He's currently preparing for municipal elections in the county seat of Bryson City, which take place in November, while also laying the foundations for the 2024 presidential contest. [...] The decentralized system of elections in the United States places a lot of responsibility on county-level officials like Byrnes.  And while he may be North Carolina's youngest election director, he's far from the only one learning the ropes during a crucial period for American democracy.

If this is true, the minimum voting age should be 25 or higher.
Dem rep advocates for lesser penalties for teen criminals, saying 'the brain doesn't fully mature until at least 25 years old'.  Rep. Mike Johnson pointed out a rather shocking change in perspective from Democrat California Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee as he headed up the House Judiciary Subcommittee's hearing on "The Dangers and Due Process Violations of 'Gender-Affirming Care' for Children" on Thursday.  Lee had previously stated that teens are not fully capable of making permanent, life-altering decisions until their brains fully mature at 25-years-old, but when it comes to sex changes, she apparently is entirely on board with kids making these kinds of decisions at incredibly young ages.

Why Are Those Who Lawfully Challenged The 2020 Election Being Charged With Crimes?  On July 18th, The Gateway Pundit reported that Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel had criminally charged 16 people who in 2020 were selected to represent the concerns of Michigan voters and serve as an alternate slate of electors, following the 2020 election.  The charges included a list of violations totaling a possible 66 years in prison for the defendants.  Nessel's statement on the case appears below.  [Tweet with video clip]

They are rubbing our noses in their filth.  The deep state stole the 2020 election right from under us.  Biden was chosen because everyone in DC knew he was dumb and corrupt, which made him the perfect figurehead for a government out of control.  Our DC overlords made no attempt to mask their election theft because they wanted to extinguish dissent.  Like the Borg in some Star Trek series, their message is resistance is futile.  Biden stayed in the basement cutting deals while the vote rigging took place elsewhere.  A press that set up cameras in the lobby to document every visitor to Trump Tower after the 2016 election has never bothered to check the records at Wilmington Airport to see whose private jets landed in Delaware to pay tribute to the next president.

True the Vote's Catherine Engelbrecht Responds to GA Charges and Media Smears — With Hard Evidence!  The Georgia State Election Board sued True the Vote, Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips earlier this month to disclose evidence behind the claims made in their popular documentary on organized election fraud and ballot harvesting in the state. [...] True the Vote shared its information with Georgia's Governor Kemp and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) back in April 2021.  Months later in September 2021, True the vote received a response from Governor Kemp's appointee at the GBI, minimizing the evidence provided and providing their decision not to perform any investigation into the ballot trafficking operation.

The GOP Death Wish.  The 2020 election was rigged, much like past elections, with the federal government acting as candidate Biden's campaign arm, colluding with big tech and social media to promote anti-Trump propaganda and suppress anything potentially detrimental to the Biden campaign.  One in six Biden voters would have changed their 2020 vote if they had known the full Hunter laptop story.  But 51 former intel officials, lied through their teeth, burying the story, and interfering in the election.  Talk about sedition.  The corporate media barked and clapped along like trained seals, abandoning any pretense of journalism in favor of serving as state-run propaganda outlets.  When rigging alone didn't work, Democrats stole the election by shutting down election night vote counting, without precedent or scrutiny, only to "find" enough ballots overnight to flip a few counties in a few swing states, enough to turn the election from Trump to Biden.  Where were Republicans?  Such vote shenanigans likely cost Republicans the Senate and almost the House.  Yet any discussion of dodgy elections is labeled as hate speech or insurrection, with elected Republicans staying silent.

Florida Democrats Scurry to Rebuild Mail-in Voter Rolls After New Law Wipes Them Clean.  Florida's wide-ranging new voting law, SB 90, is chock-full of rules that button up election integrity.  Among its many actions is this one:  "limiting the duration of requests for vote-by-mail ballots to all elections through the end of the calendar year of the next regularly scheduled general election."  It's part of Florida's move of mail-in voting from a four-year to a two-year registration window.  This is a smart way to keep the rolls of voters registered to have mail-in ballots automatically sent to them from going stale and accumulating invalid names and addresses.  For engaged voters, this simply means logging onto the state website every two years instead of four to renew their requests for mail-in ballots.  It's as easy and convenient as clicking here and answering the questions.  And of course, being eligible to vote in Florida.  But as any Democrat official will tell you (in so many words), Democrat voters are too stupid to participate in their own society by doing things like having a valid ID or using a computer.  So naturally, party officials are simmering with outrage at the harsh new law.

The Achilles Heel of Mail-In Ballot Fraud.  The difference between the Republican ballot operation and that of the leftists that is the leftists manufacture ballots, whereas Republicans only collect them.  Elections are for big stakes.  Pretty much everything is political, and thus, who controls the Legislature gets the goodies.  If you are a government pro, you live or die according to whether your team is in power.  You do what the pros do — you make sure you control your food source.  The laughable RNC "out-ballot-harvest the left" plan is one any sentient adult knows cannot work.  That of course leaves out Republican state operatives, for whom hope exceeds common sense.

Michigan Election Interference: The Real Story.  [Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn] Benson truly did break the law in a very major way, and her illegal actions changed the election.  Let's make a point by point comparison between Benson's illegal actions and those of the 16 "fakers."  First, however, we need to review the four aspects of the Jocelyn Benson fake election plan:
  [#1]   First, she prevented the adoption of voter ID requirements (e.g., drivers license number or 4 digits of SS number) by claiming that "a voter's signature is the primary and most reliable way of protecting against the possibility of fraud."  Benson made that very false statement at various times and venues.
  [#2]   After touting signature matching as the "primary" method of protecting against fraud, Benson got rid of it.  The secretary did that by telling county election clerks to just "presume" the signatures sent in with the ballots matched the registration signatures.  Why did she do that?  Who knows?
  [#3]   Four months after the election, a judge ruled that Benson broke the law, but by then, the damage was done.  Benson did not appeal.  Why would she?  Her guy won!
  [#4]   Before the 2020 election, the Secretary of State mailed out 7.7 million ballot applications, even though only 3.3 million would be used.  This was not the normal practice in Michigan, but the extra 4.4 million applications came in handy.  Up to 225,000 would be used by ballot harvesters, in the estimate of True the Vote.

Biden Campaign had Plan to Send Alternate Electors if Needed in 2020 — Now They Are Suing Republicans for Doing the Same.  Trump prosecutor Jack Smith has been investigating the process of sending alternate electors for possible prosecution.  This week, far-left Democrat Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel charged 16 of the 2020 Trump electors with eight felonies each.  Many of the Michigan Trump electors are retirees in the 70s and 80s.

What is Election Certification?  We are at a crossroads many did not see coming.  George Orwell's prescient novel, 1984, predicted the dystopian realities that face us today.  One of the famous quotes from 1984 refers to human society in general:  "The choice for mankind lies between freedom and happiness and for the great bulk of mankind, happiness is better."  Today the question is, will we choose the dwindling illusion of happiness or secure our grandchildren's freedom?  The key that turns every lock bolted against freedom is elections.  We cannot simultaneously have representative government and compromised elections.  The king of America, the law, is tethered to the sovereign, the people, through the elective process.  The loyalty of those we temporarily assign the privilege of writing and enforcing law is checked only by the honesty of our elections.

Getting Biden Wrong.  What should be a priority for those who are working to defeat the present administration is a well-considered ground game.  Telling us more about Democratic outrages will not likely help the GOP. What may is avoiding a repeat of 2020.  Getting the election to take place entirely on election day under bipartisan supervision would be ideal.  If that's no longer doable, then Republicans should make sure that all mail-in ballots are filled out and submitted according to strictly enforced rules.  Drop boxes, where permitted, should only be used during a restricted time period.  Ballots that have been dumped late at night should not be counted; and any mass dumping of ballots of the kind that took place in Philadelphia and Atlanta in 2020 should bring immediate investigation.  Republican officials, if forced to play by the other party's rules, must make sure they collect mail-in ballots as energetically as their adversaries.  Needless to say, Republicans should fight to make sure that voter identification is in force everywhere.  Republicans must work to avoid a repetition [of] the election "rigging" that Molly Hemingway and Miranda Devine found in the last presidential race:  e.g., meetings between electronic media heads and other corporate interests together with BLM representatives to discuss how they could use their combined influence to ensure a Democratic victory.

Arizona's 'Fake' Electors Are The Next Target..  An investigation launched by Arizona's Democratic Attorney General Kris Mayes is seeking another round of indictments against so-called "fake electors" in Arizona, or rather, people who believed former president Donald Trump won the state in 2020.  Mayes — who campaigned during the 2022 midterms on a pledge to investigate the Republican electors — assigned a team of investigators in May to consider charges against a group who lawfully contested the 2020 election results in Arizona.  The investigators are said to have already made "direct" contact with the electors involved.  These so-called "fake electors" include current state representative Jake Hoffman, former state representative Anthony Kern, US Senate candidate Jim Lamon, the chairman of the Arizona GOP Dr. Kelli Ward, and Tyler Bowyer, CEO at the Arizona-based Turning Point USA.

In Michigan, prepping the groundwork for stealing the 2024 election.  In some banana-republic-like maneuvers against dissidents ahead of election time, the State of Michigan has charged 16 Republican state electors with multiple felonies for allegedly attempting to "overturn" the results of the 2020 election.  Their crime?  Reacting to the obvious fraud that happened right before their eyes in that hotly disputed election.  But that's not how the Michigan attorney general playing her own version of Vyshinsky put it. [...] Anyone questioning that and the extraordinary circumstances seen in this Michigan election, and having the temerity to complain about it now faces 29 years in prison.  That's serious third-world, or even Soviet-style repression of free speech.  What exactly are electors expected to do when they see widespread fraud?  Based on Michigan Vyshynsky, they're supposed to bow down and assert what they know to be untrue, the way Stalin did to keep his sycophants in line.  And what's remarkable is that it's being done three years after their side "won" the 2020 election.  You'd think they'd have more serious priorities, given that whatever the Republican electors did, it didn't matter as far as the results went.

Two MI GOP Electors Explain Why They Cast A "Back Up Slate" of Electoral Votes in 2020 Election — Blows Up Fake Case by Activist Dem AG.  The 2020 election results in Michigan were some of the most hotly contested in the United States.  The Gateway Pundit shared multiple videos showing surveillance footage that shocked Michigan residents and people across the United States, who believed they were likely watching mass-organized voter fraud take place on camera.  Curiously, MI AG Dana Nessel and Michigan's Soros-funded SOS Jocelyn Benson didn't feel compelled to investigate any of the videos that went viral after the Gateway Pundit made them public.

Michigan Charges 16 People — Average Age 69 — for Believing Trump Won.  Sixteen Republicans in Michigan — including former state co-chairwoman Meshawn Maddock — are being prosecuted by Democrat Attorney General Dana Nessel for putting themselves forward as alternative electors after the 2020 election results were contested.  AG Nessel accuses the would-be electors — who average out at 69 years old between them — of having "undermined the public's faith in the integrity of our elections," and has hit each of them with eight felonies, among them forgery, conspiracy to commit forgery, and election law forgery.  Several of the charges carry prison terms of up to 14 years.  "Undoubtedly, there will be those who claim these charges are political in nature, but where there is overwhelming evidence of guilt in respect to multiple crimes, the most political act I could engage in as a prosecutor would be to take no action at all," the Democrat claimed.

The Left's 2020 'Fake Electors' Narrative Is Fake News.  Headlines recently proclaimed that eight of Trump's "fake" electors accepted immunity deals.  Of course, in reporting the news, the corporate outlets all missed the real story — that the electors' testimony failed to incriminate anyone, including Trump, and that the county prosecutors engaged in massive misconduct.  Equally appalling, however, was the corrupt media's continued peddling of the "fake electors" narrative.  There were no "fake" electors.  There were contingent Republican electors named consistent with legal precedent to preserve the still ongoing legal challenges to the validity of Georgia's certified vote.  Nor was appointing an alternative slate of electors some cockamamie plan devised by Trump lawyers.  On the contrary, Trump's election lawyers and the contingent electors followed the precise approach Democrats successfully used when the date Congress established for certifying an election came before the legal challenges John F. Kennedy had brought in Hawaii were decided.  And that approach allowed Kennedy to be certified the winner of Hawaii's three electoral votes on Jan. 6, 1961, even though the Aloha State had originally certified Richard Nixon the victor.

New Database Shows a Single Vote Has Altered Outcomes in Hundreds of Elections.  Most people in the media don't want you to believe that election crimes are committed.  They say it is easier to find Bigfoot.  But election crimes are not a myth, and The Heritage Foundation has been systematically documenting them for years.  When those who deny the crimes occur are forced to confront the data, the response sometimes shifts to "It doesn't matter anyway."  After all, does it really matter if a single vote is improperly or criminally cast?  A new database created by the Public Interest Legal Foundation shows that one single vote has altered the outcome of hundreds of elections.

The Editor says...
I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Democrats often win by one vote, but I don't think Republicans are so fortunate.

Can elections have integrity?  To be accurate, elections must meet extremely stringent standards established under federal law by the "election deniers" of 2000: Democrats.  The allowable error rate in a federal election, in order for that election to be valid and therefore certifiable, is 1/10,000,000 ballot positions or 1/125,000 ballots (see 3.2.1).  According to the federal election assistance commission that set this legal standard, "this rate is set at a sufficiently stringent level such that the likelihood of voting system errors affecting the outcome of an election is exceptionally remote even in the closest of elections."  When it comes to federal elections, there are no honest mistakes.  New York's 2020 general election provides countless fine examples of how this standard is being ignored.  With a claim of 8.6 million votes cast, the board of elections is allowed grace regarding exactly 69 ballots.  Yet the NYSVoter database, the official registration record according to the law (Title III, Sec. 303 [a][1][A]), shows 740,000+ votes cast by registration records that are illegal or invalid.

10 Paradigm Shifts that Shatter Establishment Illusions.  [#5] Every presidential election this century has been tainted by allegations of fraud.  Instead of remedying this public perception, election officials and courts have made things worse.  Voting has turned into a months-long affair that begins before candidates have even debated and often extends many weeks past Election "Day."  Electronic voting machines remain vulnerable to hacks.  Mail-in balloting devoid of fundamental security, identity checks, or signature verification has transformed contests into ballot-stuffing fraud-fests orchestrated by paid political operatives.  Secretaries of state refrain from enforcing election law; attorneys general refrain from prosecuting crimes; courts rewrite statutory law to tilt elections.  Battleground states routinely suffer from inexplicable counting problems that delay the timely reporting of results.  Vote-counting lacks transparency and reproducibility.  When lawyers attempt to challenge results, their professional licenses are often threatened.  Americans overwhelmingly believe that election cheating is pervasive.

Police forcibly remove woman from Georgia county Board of Elections meeting for questioning the 2020 elections.  A woman was forcibly removed by police from a Chatham County Board of Elections meeting after officials said she refused to yield her time during public comment.  Beth Majeroni of Savannah identified herself to WTGS as the woman in the video.  During the regularly scheduled Board of Elections meeting on Monday, Majeroni was removed from the building by law enforcement before they say she eventually tried to reenter the building three more times.  Majeroni said this was because she needed her keys, phone and other belongings in the building.  [Video clip]

Gen. Flynn and Steve Bannon Must Go Under Oath In Smartmatic Case.  Gen. Michael Flynn and Host of War Room Steve Bannon must go under oath and answer questions regarding to Smartmatic's lawsuit against Newsmax.  New Court filings from a Delaware court reveal Smartmatic served subpoenas to both Flynn and Bannon to go under oath and answer questions.  Currently, Smartmatic has accused Newsmax of "knowingly spreading false claims that the voting software maker was part of a scheme to rig the election."  Smartmatic has also sued Fox News and several Trump lawyers for a sum of over 2.7 billion dollars.

Will Someone Please Wake Me From This Nightmare?  There is considerable evidence that the past two elections were rigged against Republicans, yet no measures are taken to insure this does not happen again.  If this is not corrected it could spell the end of our constitutional republic.

Ohio Launches Election Integrity Office To Ensure Transparency In Future Elections.  Ohio is launching a new office dedicated to ensuring transparency in its elections, Secretary of State Frank LaRose announced last week.  According to a LaRose press release, the Office of Data Analytics and Archives, which will be housed within the secretary of state's office, signifies "the first-ever substantive effort by any state to adopt a clear and consistent method for retaining election data."  The office received funding via the DATA Act, which was included in the biennial operating budget recently passed by Ohio legislators.

That's great, but what about investigating previous elections?

Democrats in Massachusetts Look to Give Voting Rights to Foreign Nationals.  Democrat legislators in Massachusetts are looking to give foreign nationals on green cards the right to vote in municipal elections.  A series of bills filed by Democrat legislators in the Massachusetts House and Senate would open municipal voting rights to foreign nationals living in the state on green cards.  In practice, the policy would mean foreign nationals could cast deciding votes in Massachusetts towns and cities for mayor, school committee, city council, town council, board of selectmen, select board elections, school committee referendums, local ballot referendums, or other municipal races.

In a few years, when everybody has accepted this terrible idea, there will be a tiny little incremental change to allow illegal aliens to vote in every election.  By the time the Supreme Court hears about it, the damage will have been done already.

Is the 2024 Election the Last Gasp for America?  If sanity doesn't return to American culture and governance, where are we headed?  Can the elections even be trusted?  I discussed this issue last week concluding that they cannot be trusted.  Are electoral outcomes predetermined?  Are voting machines still connected to the internet?  Will thousands of undeliverable ballots be harvested by postal workers, delivered to unknown locations, to be filled out by Democrat operatives and delivered to selected precincts, run through vote tabulators multiple times until the preordained candidate takes the lead?  Democrats aren't even concerned about the 2024 election.  Biden has few campaign workers and no headquarters.  Why should he?  He already has the necessary votes, as he did in 2020, confident that his vote tally will exceed that of any opponent.  For Democrats, the fix is in, the campaign is theater.  Has Trump or the GOP fixed anything since 2020 effecting a different outcome?  Or will elections even happen?  Will there be a false flag event leading to delayed or cancelled elections for "public safety"?

Why Has Election Day Turned Into Election Month?  Remember when Election Day used to be an actual day?  You'd gather with your family and friends to find out who the next president was going to be.  It was a time to celebrate our republic as Americans went to have their voices heard at the ballot box.  The Public Interest Legal Foundation, of which I am president, is fighting in federal court to restore the "day" in Election Day.  We filed a federal lawsuit in North Dakota to enforce federal law and stop the state from accepting ballots up to 13 days after Election Day.  We allege that North Dakota's law allowing the election to drag on for almost two extra weeks conflicts with federal law.  This case doesn't claim that anyone stole the North Dakota election.  Indeed, North Dakota is only involved in the case because it is one of the most extreme states in accepting ballots weeks after the election.

There are ways to stop voter fraud that uses undelivered ballots.  Jay Valentine makes a strong case that ballots should not be mailed out to addresses for which mail cannot be delivered (vacant lots), at which voters cannot reside (commercial or industrial addresses), or where mail cannot be accurately delivered (apartment or dorm buildings with no apartment number or dorm room number.) He recommends purifying voter rolls so that ballots will not be mailed out to addresses where mail cannot be delivered or voters cannot live.  This can be done by compiling the Undeliverable Ballot Database (UBD).  To support his argument, Valentine quotes a message from a retired mailman who said that he saw hundreds, or even thousands, of returned ballots put in a basket at the post office for "returned/undeliverable mail" until someone came by and picked them up.  It is important to note that these mailed-out ballots are "live ammunition" that can be voted by anyone who picks them up and votes the way they want to.  Some states (such as Texas) require that the voter include parts of a social security number or driver's license number in the returned ballot.  However, this is certainly not a foolproof method, as the requested data is accessible via commercial databases, and fraudsters can find and supply it.

Judge Delivers Major Ruling on Kari Lake's Lawsuit — It's On!.  A judge in Maricopa County, Arizona, has decided not to halt former Republican gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake's attempts to access vote affidavit envelopes from last year's election.  Lake continues to combat what she perceives to be fraudulent acts that she claims contributed to her loss.  Maricopa County had maintained that the signatures on the ballot affidavit are confidential because they are an integral part of the voter registration record, which is protected by state law, with the exception of a few instances in which county attorneys believed Lake fell short.  According to the AZ Capitol Times, late last month, Judge John Hannah rejected the argument based on the fact that county recorders routinely include ballot affidavit envelopes in voter registration records, though not always due to legal requirements or explicit instructions.

Enough!  Do you realize that once you accept the fact that every vote you make now will be swarmed by several fake and fraudulent votes that the gig is up and there's nothing between that knowledge and confronting the criminals in the street?  That anything less is merely a delaying tactic while they better supply and prepare their troops? [...] We cannot let them have this nation without a fight.  We cannot allow our land and sovereignty to be used as collateral for their grift.  I'm looking for a leader, a general to marshal the troops.  This is so far past anything reasonably akin to our founding that thousands of such people must know it as well as I do.

Mike Lawler Introduces Bill To Ban Ranked-Choice Voting In DC.  Republican Rep. Mike Lawler of New York has introduced a bill to ban the practice of "ranked-choice voting" in Washington, D.C., which left-wing activists have sought to propose as a ballot initiative in 2024.  A left-wing group, Make All Votes Count D.C., filed a ballot proposal to impose a system of ranked-choice voting in the district, whereby voters would rank all candidates on the ballot for an office according to their preferences, instead of voting for only one candidate under the current system.  Lawler's bill, known as the "District of Columbia One Vote One Choice Act," would bar the district from this practice and empower the Attorney General to sue D.C. for compliance, according to a copy of the bill that was obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Watchdog Sues North Dakota for Counting Ballots After Election Day.  The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an election integrity group, has filed a federal lawsuit against North Dakota election officials for the state's law allowing mail-in ballots to be accepted and counted after election day.  On Thursday, PILF filed the lawsuit in the district court, claiming that North Dakota's law that allows state election officials to accept and count mail-in ballots up to 13 days after election day violates federal law.  "Election day has ceased to be a day," PILF President J. Christian Adams said in a statement.  "Instead, we have election month because states accept ballots that arrive days and even weeks after election day."

Do Americans Still Trust Our Elections?  Were the votes counted honestly or accurately?  Remember how Fox News called Arizona for Biden with only a few percent of the votes tabulated.  And how several swing states immediately thereafter stopped counting votes on election evening with Trump leading, only to resume the next day, Biden now ahead.  All delayed counting gave votes to Biden, not to Trump.  What are the odds of that?  This Twitter thread by Tom Elliott chronicles multiple episodes of election corruption and interference at the hands of the federal government in collusion with big tech and social media giants.  Aside from ballot-counting irregularities and voting machines connected to the internet, federal intelligence and law enforcement agencies influenced past elections by spying on one candidate and ignoring potential crimes of another candidate, both in 2016 and 2020.  They had the willing and eager cooperation of corporate media, big tech, and social media to push or suppress news beneficial or detrimental to their favored candidate.  Can we trust our election results?

Attorney who challenged Trump 2020 election results relinquishes law license.  Attorney Lin Wood, known for filing challenges seeking to overturn former President Donald Trump's 2020 election loss, is giving up his law license instead of facing possible disbarment.  On Tuesday, Wood asked officials in Georgia, his home state, to "retire" his law license in light of "disciplinary proceedings pending against me."  In the request, Wood acknowledged that after relinquishing his license, he is "prohibited from practicing law in this State and in any other state or jurisdiction and that I may not reapply for admission."  Several states have considered disciplining Wood for pushing the former president's debunked claims that widespread election fraud led to President Joe Biden's victory.

Obama-Appointed Judge Blocks Florida's Election Law Banning Non-Citizens From Collecting Voter Registration Forms.  An Obama-appointed federal judge on Monday issued a preliminary injunction against Florida's election law that imposed limitations on third-party voter registration organizations.  In May Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) signed SB 7020, a law that barred non-citizens from handling or collecting voter registration forms.  One of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit is an immigrant from El Salvador who works for "Mi Vecino," a third party voter registration organization.  US District Judge Mark Walker said the election law banning non-citizens from handling voter registration forms is unconstitutional.

A Line of Defense Against Mail-in Ballot Fraud.  The only way to stop the government, in particular the United States Post Office, from gathering hundreds of thousands of loose ballots, all of which go somewhere other than to Republican candidates — is to stop those ballots in the first place.  We know, from numerous sources, that the Post Office is one of several ballot-gathering apparatuses of the Left.  How much ballot harvesting at evangelical churches is needed to make up for government-sponsored ballot harvesting — industrial scale?  A key to winning in 2024 is to identify every, or as close to every as technology and diligent work can enable — every ballot being sent out that will land in that "basket" that "somebody" later picked up.  What are the addresses on those ballots?
  •   Ballots mailed to vacant lots — or in Arizona, street corners.
  •   Ballots sent to apartment buildings without the unit or APT number.
  •   Ballots sent to college dorms for students registered there for decades.
  •   Ballots sent to fraternities with a 105-year-old student.
  •   Ballots sent to churches — which have no bedrooms, thus cannot be someone's domicile.
  •   Ballots for the person who moved — over a year ago.
  •   Ballots mailed to hotels and casinos.
  •   Ballots where the address was modified — by the voter commission (as in Arizona) — the week those ballots went out, thus missing the recipient.
  •   Ballots sent to Manchurian restaurants, laundromats, banks, and 7-Elevens — all of which are not valid addresses for voters.
  •   Ballots sent to UPS and FedEx boxes — sometimes to a dozen people living in that little box.

In Defense of Donald Trump.  [Scroll down]  The number of written affidavits submitted by witnesses to 2020 election malfeasance in Georgia is uncertain here.  However, between January 9 and January 14, 2020, over forty of these witnesses gave videoed testimony at Cobb County Republican Party Headquarters.  Half of those testimonies are featured on this NTD web site.  At least six of these witnesses, each in separate instances, in three separate counties — Cobb County, Fulton County and Clayton County — report to encountering, between them, thousands of mail-in ballots, in pristine condition — without creases in the paper; showing that these ballots were never folded and mailed.  All these ballots were identically marked for Joe Biden.  Add to those six witnesses a poll manager in Fulton County who testifies, under oath, that she and a co-worker, also came across a "batch" of uncreased mail-in ballots.  "Every single ballot was absolutely identical.  They appeared to be printed..." she reports.  "98% of these ballots were for Joseph R. Biden."  Two ballots were for Donald Trump and one for Joe Jorgensen.  So now we have at least seven individuals who witnessed significant quantities of mail-in ballots that were clearly counterfeit.

Harris County Elections Administrator Fails to Appear for Court Deposition.  Harris County Elections Administrator Clifford Tatum did not show up for a scheduled deposition last Friday over pending legal challenges to the county's 2022 general elections.  Attorney Elizabeth Alvarez, who represents 17 of the 21 Republican candidates contesting elections, was scheduled to depose Tatum via Zoom last Friday at 10:30 a.m., but according to a certificate of non-appearance filed by the court reporter, Tatum failed to attend.  Judge David Peeples, assigned to hear all the Harris County election contests, did not take up discussion of Tatum's failure to appear during a conference hearing Thursday, since attorneys representing Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo are on vacation this week.  Tatum participated in a deposition last month for the case filed by Republican Erin Lunceford against Democrat Tamika Craft regarding the contest for the 189th District Court, but no explanation for his non-appearance regarding the other contests last week has been filed.

The Democrats' Definition Of Democracy Is Like The Marxist Definition Of Peace.  The criminalization of politics is only one iteration of the left's doctrine that politics are war by other means, though.  The Democrats, with in-kind aid from the media, are also trying to bully the Supreme Court into submission to their will.  Their message to the Court's conservative justices:  Rule our way or we will harass you until you resign.  In this war with multiple fronts, the Democrats are attempting to establish a permanent majority through a direct assault on elections.  We're talking about far more than the "cabal" that was mobilized in 2020 to guarantee the presidency for Joe Biden.  The party is determined to federalize elections with rules that would put our voting system in the hands of Deep State bureaucrats and political insiders rather than the locals we live among, and codify practices that are illegal in most of the country.  This would end our political system as we've known it, with its crucial checks and balances, and eventually replace it with a Democratic Party dictatorship.

Records: 1,400 Voters Flagged as Foreign Nationals in North Carolina.  The North Carolina State Board of Elections (NCSBE) flagged more than 1,400 registered voters as foreign nationals prior to the 2014 midterm elections, records obtained by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) reveal.  In a detailed report, PILF researchers unveil the extent to which the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993, known as "Motor Voter," has made it easier for states to wrongfully register foreign nationals to vote.

Georgia Won't Fix Its Dominion Machines.  PhD Scientists Are Mortified..  Technology experts are warning that the state of Georgia's election results will continue to be viewed with suspicion if Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger refuses to address the grave concerns published in the recently released Halderman report.  "Raffensperger has lumped us with the election deniers," David Jefferson, a computer scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and an expert on election technology told POLITICO.  "But we cannot, out of fear of that confusion, stop talking about these vulnerabilities.  They are real, they are there, and they must be addressed."  The Halderman report uncovered nine "critical vulnerabilities" in Dominion Voting Systems' machines and found that a "dishonest election worker... with just brief access to the scanner's memory card could violate ballot secrecy and determine how individual voters voted."  But Raffensperger, who is ultimately in charge of election oversight, doesn't seem concerned, [...]

Unspooling the Coffee County, Georgia Voting System Breach and Continuing Cover-Up.  At first glance, a closed-door executive session of the Board of Elections at the Coffee County Courthouse in the battleground state of Georgia appeared to involve nothing more than discussion of that day's resignation letters from then-Election Supervisor Misty Hampton and her assistant over their purported cheating on timesheets.  But the previously undisclosed, simultaneous presence of an unacknowledged quorum of County Commissioners at that executive session — a secret meeting during a secret meeting, a game-changer confirmed by The BRAD BLOG — combined with curious doth protest too much efforts the County is still using to defend its secrets about the supposedly humdrum assembly, indicate the February 25, 2021 meetings (now known as meetings plural) and surrounding events were the nexus of a much broader statewide, perhaps even nationwide, cover-up.

2024: How to Out-Compute the Left.  The left owns the election apparatus — voting equipment, ballot-manufacturing, vagrant habitats, election commissions, media intimidation of judges not to look at election fraud and driving out any lawyer who raises a valid case.  Electioneering, by both sides, currently runs 1970s technology. [...] Ninety percent of current election fraud comes in two buckets: election commissions jacking with voter rolls like Arizona and Wisconsin and mail-in ballots collected and illegally voted like everywhere.  Neither fraud bucket is thwarted by organizational solutions — both can be stopped with real-time compute power.  Let's define the terrain.  Twenty twenty-four will be won or lost in six swing states.  In each swing state, 2024 will be won or lost based on fraud turnout in two or three counties.  The leader of the free world, the end of the Deep State, for many the future of America as they have known it depends on about 17 counties.

A Look at Society Shows an Orchestrated Decline.  Something fundamental has been lost for us all, and that is too many people have lost faith in our system.  Many election officials are openly partisan with little to no interest in open, free, and fair elections.  According to the Census Bureau regarding the 2020 presidential election, "Many voters used alternative voting methods, and there was a large shift to early voting and voting by mail."  Voting by mail is an invitation to fraud and disproportionately benefits Democrats.  It undercuts the importance of taking the time and effort to show up at the polls on a particular day and participate in a sacred manner enshrined within the American experience.

Saying the Quiet Part Out Loud.  Whenever I hear someone say that the battle for America's future is already lost because of institutionalized election-rigging, I always think, "The more that people understand the voting process as rigged, the less important fraudulent elections become."  The recognition of injustice is far more potent than its imposition. [...] So, if Americans today no longer trust elections that have turned into months-long affairs inundated with mail-in ballots devoid of voter identification or secure chains of custody, that's a good start.  If voters are fed up with elections that lack transparency, statutory fidelity, timeliness, and prompt reproducibility, then we're moving in the right direction.  When elections are correctly understood as tainted by fraud, then we can finally have a "national conversation" about election illegitimacy.  We can talk about the unbelievability of Joe Biden winning more votes than anyone in history.

The GOP is Losing the Vote Fraud War.  A Rasmussen poll taken in October of 2021 found that 56% of all likely voters believed that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.  Another Rasmussen poll dated April of 2023 revealed that 60% of all likely voters believed that cheating affected the outcomes of many 2022 midterm elections.  Unsurprisingly in a Rasmussen poll published on June 14, 2023, 54% of all likely voters believe that cheating will determine the outcome of the 2024 presidential election.  For a majority of the American electorate, and for a much higher percentage of Republicans, the issue of whether there was rampant cheating in the past two election cycles is no longer in question and their concern about the outcome of the 2024 election is fully justified.  The Republican National Committee (RNC), beyond issuing the usual fatuous press releases and reports about what they are going to do, has done nothing of substance on the ground to offset unabashed Democrat cheating.

Dominion Voting Machine Farce — Going Bankrupt After Getting $787M?  As reported, the Halderman report is out, which details all the ways the Dominion machines could be hacked.  The information was hidden until now by Judge Totenberg, a far-left judge whose sister Nina Totenberg writes for the far-left at NPR.  Halderman's report was hidden because it shows the election could be hacked, but he also claims there is no evidence the machines were breached.  Some of the flaws he cites would make it very difficult to detect, and we don't know how hard he tried to detect hacking.  Halderman concluded there were "multiple severe security flaws."

How This Legal Group Plans To Halt Democrats' Jihad Against Election Integrity Laws Ahead Of 2024.  It's no secret by now the 2020 election was fraught with complete chaos and confusion.  In addition to leftist billionaires pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into local election offices to alter election operations, the contest was marred by Democrat-backed groups' orchestrated legal campaign to change state election laws in their favor.  Regime-approved media were even running stories months before the election forecasting such a strategy.  In February 2020, for instance, Politico ran an article detailing how "a constellation of left-leaning groups" were "spending millions of dollars" to launch "an avalanche of voting-rights lawsuits against state laws they say suppress participation in elections." The lawsuits were widespread in nature, targeting provisions related to voter ID requirements, voter-roll maintenance, ballot signature verification, and more.  Whether it was Wisconsin, Georgia, Pennsylvania, or Michigan, states all over the country were barraged with Democrats' legal blitz.  In order to prevent similar chicanery from continuing in future electoral contests, an election integrity group known as Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (RITE) is launching its counterstrategy ahead of the 2024 election.

Halderman Report Released in Georgia.  Obama Judge Amy Totenberg sealed and covered up the results of an investigation of voting machines in Georgia.  This report has still not been released.  This week CISA released a report showing material discrepancies in these systems while attempting to downplay these material issues. [...] Obama Judge Amy Totenberg is the sister of NPR's far-left correspondent Nina Totenberg. [...] In 2021, Judge Totenberg committed her gravest offense as a judge.  She sealed and covered up the results of the Halderman report in Georgia.  Up until this week, we did not know what is in this report.  Halderman's investigation into the voting machines in Georgia started before the 2020 Election and was completed in July 2021.  Steve Bannon interviewed Kurt Olsen about cybersecurity analyst J. Alex Halderman, who found flaws in Dominion voting machines, and warned about the potential for future attacks.  Judge Totenberg sealed the report.  According to court documents, Halderman wrote his report after he was given 12 weeks of access to an unused Dominion ICX voting machine.

The 2024 Reality TV Show to Blow Up Leftist Election Fraud.  We have written about how the data for the six swing states show enough sovereign voter fraud (the election commission is in on it) and phantoms to overcome any likely Trump vote majority.  Accumulating events indicate that leftists may be helping Trump blow through their fraud firewall.  In each swing state, there are from 200,000 to 400,000 phantom voters or addresses or both locked into the voter rolls.  Three years of volunteer election integrity work has done little to reduce these numbers.  While phantoms were found by the tens of thousands, few were removed.  Little has been done to thwart county or state officials augmenting voter roll data to help leftist candidates.  Trump is currently unlikely to win any swing state by enough votes to overcome the fake ballot stash each state's leftists and RINOs prepared against him.

Box of 289 Absentee Ballots from 2020 Election Discovered in Michigan Storage Unit.  A Michigan official says approximately 300 absentee ballots from the 2020 election were discovered in a storage unit in Genesee County.  Thetford Township Supervisor Rachel Stanke found the ballots thanks to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Just the News reported Friday.  Stanke then brought the issue to the attention of the township board and its residents.

OKI Ballot Printer Company Sends "Response to Factual Errors in Maricopa County Elections Report".  Maricopa County's ballot printer source, OKI Data Americas, recently responded to the County's sham ballot printer investigation, debunking false claims and demanding a corrected report from the Maricopa County Attorney's Office.  According to OKI's statement, Maricopa County did not even contact the company, and they were "completely unaware that an investigation was underway."  The Gateway Pundit reported on Maricopa County's Ballot-on-Demand Printer Investigation led by former Arizona Supreme Court Justice Ruth McGregor.

If the Electoral System Were Actually Free and Fair.  If elections were free and fair, then we would see the best Americans elected to federal, state, and local governments, usually though we don't.  If elections were free and fair, then the least fit to govern candidates would not keep "winning" seats, but they often do.  If the elections were free and fair, then our government would not need to weaponize its agencies against its critics, but it does.  If the elections were free and fair, then our elected officials would not act in a blatant disregard of their voters' will... but many of them do.  Take, for example, Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon, who continues to release violent criminals to the streets despite the (often deadly) consequences for countless victims, widespread criticism by law enforcement, and the public outrage his pro-crime approach elicits.

RNC Canvassing Lists: The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight.  There is nothing more fundamental to electioneering than taking a list of registered voters, knocking on their doors, pitching your candidate, handing each a flyer, and getting them all out to vote.  This is the building block of election management.  It is stunning how absolutely incompetent the Republican Party is performing this fundamental task.  Last week, NBC News did a story about how the canvassing for Republican candidates was so bad that it likely lost the Senate elections in Nevada and Georgia, and probably others as well.  Our Republican Party pals could not deliver a list of voters that was close to accurate!

Postal Service Releases Final Report — Contract Driver Jesse Morgan Vindicated.  As The Gateway Pundit reported in 2020, election fraud whistleblowers came forward in December following the controversial election, including one who witnessed the shipping of an estimated 144,000-288,000 completed ballots across three state lines on October 21.  The new information was made public at a press conference by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, a national constitutional litigation organization.  The Amistad Project said that they have sworn declarations that state over 300,000 ballots are at issue in Arizona, 548,000 in Michigan, 204,000 in Georgia, and over 121,000 in Pennsylvania.

The Razor-thin Margin.  [Scroll down]  Consider the 1960 results in the states of Texas and Illinois.  In Texas, Kennedy received 1,167,567 (50.52%) against 1,121,310 (48.52%) for Nixon, for 24 electoral votes.  In Illinois, Kennedy received 2,377,846 votes (49.98% of votes cast) versus Nixon's 2,368,988 (49.80%) and therefore gained the state's 27 votes. [...] The Washington Post noted one instance in Texas:  "In Fannin County, which had 4,895 registered voters, 6,138 votes were cast, three-quarters of them for Kennedy."  More votes cast than registered voters — where have we heard that recently?

Are National Events Today Being Staged?  [For example,] The 2020 Presidential campaign whereby Joe Biden sat secluded in his basement without campaigning at all while Trump crisscrossed the nation, holding rallies with tens of thousands of people showing up to listen to him all over the nation.  [And] The 2020 General Election whereby vote counting tabulation stopped for the first time in the history of America with Trump ahead, only to have his lead vanish when vote counting resumed.  People in New Zealand actually reported they saw the vote count flip on live television, with the numbers of votes for Donald Trump going to Joe Biden in an instant.  The multiple predictors of election outcomes that had been right in the past suddenly wrong in predicting Trump over Biden.

Jesse Morgan and the 200k Missing Ballots — an Update.  Jesse Morgan drove a tractor trailer for a contractor working for the U.S. Postal Service.  Shortly after the 2020 election, Morgan made these claims at a press conference held by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society:
  •   On October 21, 2020, Jesse drove his truck and trailer from Bethpage, New York, to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, loaded with as many as 288,000 completed ballots.  In addition, there were two large trays of mixed mail, bound for Lancaster.  Those were in the front of the trailer.
  •   Jesse drove the trailer to Harrisburg, but was not allowed to unload.  After a six-hour wait, he was told to drive to Lancaster, without unloading at Harrisburg.  In addition, the supervisor in Harrisburg refused to give him any paperwork to document his arrival in Harrisburg or his six-hour wait, which normally would justify extra compensation.
  •   Jesse Morgan was perplexed by these instructions because "95 percent" of the load was for Harrisburg, and that mail would have to be unloaded before anyone could get access to the Lancaster mail bins.  After that, the Harrisburg mail would have to be returned to the trailer and driven back to Harrisburg.  Even for the government, that is slightly inefficient.
  •   As instructed, Morgan drove the tractor trailer to Lancaster, and parked it in his usual spot.  The next morning, the trailer had disappeared, without explanation.  The trailer and the ballots were gone, and no one would explain to Morgan, or anyone else in this world, what had happened.

How did hundreds of noncitizens end up on Chicago's voter rolls?  Hundreds of noncitizens have been kicked off Chicago's voter rolls after admitting they were never supposed to have been registered in the first place, according to a new study that blames the Motor Voter Act for how the names got added in the first place.  Since 2007, the city has removed 394 people from its voting lists after deciding they were actually foreign nationals who, under the law, are ineligible to vote.  City records show that 20 of the noncitizens did actually vote, casting a total of 85 ballots, according to data compiled by the Public Interest Legal Foundation.

Maricopa County Elections Officials Illegally Break into Sealed Election Machines after they were Certified and Before the Election — Inserting Reprogrammed Memory Cards.  A new video exposes Maricopa County's secret machine tampering, where they reprogrammed the voting machines on October 14th, 17th, and 18th so that 59% of them would fail when Republican voters came in to vote on Election Day in 2022.  As The Gateway Pundit recently reported, newly available records show that Maricopa County began "secret" Logic and Accuracy testing on October 14th, after the statutorily required October 11th test, and the legally required public notice was not given.  This is a smoking gun in Kari Lake's stolen election contest.  Lake attorney Kurt Olsen concluded that "this evidence would support our allegation that this election was rigged."

NEW Video Seems To Show Maricopa Officials Breaking Into Sealed Voting Machines.  New *video evidence* of Maricopa election officials illegally breaking into sealed election machines after they were tested, reprogramming memory cards, and reinstalling them.  59% of these machines would shut down on election day in GOP areas.  [Video clip]

It Was Always Only About Power With the Left.  Prominent leftists from Jimmy Carter to Hillary Clinton also had been on record following the 2016 election claiming that Trump was an illegitimate president and the 2016 election had been rigged in Trump's favor due to the hoax of Russian collusion.  Hillary Clinton — who paid Christopher Steele to use Clinton-related fake sources to compile fabrications and destroy her 2016 rival — later even bragged she was joining "La Résistance."  The chairman of the January 6 committee that damned Trump's supposed election denialism, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), himself was an election denialist par excellence, who absurdly voted in the Congress to reject George Bush's popular vote victory in Ohio that decided the 2004 election.  By any fair measure the violence of 2020 was a far greater and more deadly threat to the republic than anything occurring on January 6, 2021.  But most of the 14,000 arrested perpetrators who were responsible for that incredible summer of violence were exempted because their mayhem was deemed politically useful — in the same fashion it was advantageous to turn the buffoonish Capitol protesters into seasoned revolutionaries.  The common denominator was only the Left's efforts to warp events to achieve power.

Five Questions for Prospective Republican Candidates.  We may well be living in a "fake election" era, when legalized ballot fraud, months-long voting, and nonexistent voter identification requirements give the Uniparty insurmountable advantages in "selecting" compliant "representatives" for the people.  But voting in the largest numbers possible will continue to highlight the obvious election rigging.  If for no other reason than that it makes the fraudsters' jobs that much harder, voting still matters.  Force them to explain how precincts can turn out more votes than residents!  There's a reason the State-controlled media never point out that Joe Biden supposedly won fifteen million more votes than Barack Obama did in 2012 and more votes than any presidential candidate in history:  nobody would believe that reality if forced to confront it.  That's why, even as the Pravda press covers up the Biden family's quid-pro-quo crimes and pretends Dementia Joe's gibberish proves anything other than idiotic incompetence, the Baghdad Bobs on TV never trumpet Biden's 80 million votes. [...] What I want is for Republican candidates to verbally acknowledge that numerous instances of statistically improbable results, days-long vote-counting, anonymous mail-in ballot dumps, late-night vote-tally flips, and unbelievable hijinks occurring in Democrat precincts where voting machines inexplicably break down, vote centers randomly flood, and ballots are miraculously "found" all add up to a well organized, well funded, and systemic vote fraud operation that has cheated voters and invalidated many recent elections.  Even when it is clear that mass mail-in balloting has enabled Democrat-controlled cities to print enough ballots to throw statewide elections, the Paul Ryan RINO coalition sees nothing.  Even when fifty-plus Intelligence Community officers push propaganda and censorship to manipulate election outcomes, Uniparty Republicans see

The Vote Fraud Monster Is Coming for Ted Cruz.  We deal in a world of imperfect pols — it's just frustrating to see our imperfect pols treated with different rules from their imperfect pols.  Texas, like a lot of conservative states, is run by leftists and RINOs.  Take Wyoming — one of the most overwhelmingly red states — yet its Legislature is RINO city.  In Texas, the house leadership was often, and currently is, RINO.  It's a stupid thing.  It's what elected conservatives do:  they run as a conservative, win, then sell out by electing leadership that will eviscerate conservative programs.  They all do it.  There's a bigger story here.  Texas is preparing to go purple in 2024 and take out Ted Cruz.  To do that, there must be industrial-scale voter fraud from the large cities.  Ken Paxton stood in the way.

AI presents political peril for 2024 with threat to mislead voters.  Computer engineers and tech-inclined political scientists have warned for years that cheap, powerful artificial intelligence tools would soon allow anyone to create fake images, video and audio that was realistic enough to fool voters and perhaps sway an election.  The synthetic images that emerged were often crude, unconvincing and costly to produce, especially when other kinds of misinformation were so inexpensive and easy to spread on social media.  The threat posed by AI and so-called deepfakes always seemed a year or two away.  No more.  Sophisticated generative AI tools can now create cloned human voices and hyper-realistic images, videos and audio in seconds, at minimal cost.  When strapped to powerful social media algorithms, this fake and digitally created content can spread far and fast and target highly specific audiences, potentially taking campaign dirty tricks to a new low.

Catastrophic "Loss of Control" Data Breach in NY Elections.  A peer-reviewed study in the Journal of Information Warfare (JIW) confirms a "Loss of Control" breach has occurred in the NYSVoter Database.  A peer-reviewed paper of their results in a respected journal is a hard-won and "significant milestone," according to Marly Hornik, Executive Director of the NY Citizens Audit.  The audit of the voter rolls was led by Marly Hornik and Andrew Paquette, Ph.D., Director of Research, who submitted the paper to JIW.  Paquette "co-founded the International Game Architecture and Design Academy (now BUAS) in the Netherlands after a career in the feature film and video game industries.  He received his Ph.D. from King's College, London, in 2018 for a thesis on the development of expertise."  In July 2021, Hornik and Paquette assembled a group of volunteers in New York that has grown to around 2000 individuals statewide to investigate the state's voter registration rolls.  Hornik presented the group's preliminary findings to attendees at The  Pit, sponsored by True the Vote, in August 2022.

Voter Fraud Convictions Result in Light Sentences.  Election integrity advocates have been warning that the trend of light sentences for those convicted of election fraud will not result in any actual deterrence from further election fraud crimes being committed in upcoming elections.  As reported by Just The News, while prosecutors have been going after those accused of perpetuating voter fraud, the final sentences are often produced as a result of plea deals, and thus often lead to little or no jail time.  "The good news is [prosecutors] seem to be more aggressive about going against these kinds of cases," said Ned Jones, deputy director of the Election Integrity Network.  "But the sentencing is ridiculous.  It's not harsh enough."

KT McFarland: We Now Have Hard Evidence Of Election Interference By Intel Agencies In 2016 And 2020.  K.T. McFarland, who served as President Trump's deputy national security advisor under Mike Flynn for the first few months of the Trump administration, told FBN's Maria Bartiromo on Sunday [5/21/2023] that she believes the FBI, CIA, and the intelligence community will try to interfere in the 2024 election to "protect their own hides" by covering up evidence of interference in 2016 and 2020.  "They will absolutely interfere in 2024.  We're not sure how but they will absolutely interfere, not only because they're not going to like whoever the Republican candidate is, but to protect their own hides," McFarland said.  "They knew they were doing stuff wrong.  They knew they were going to be liable for prosecution."  "They can't possibly admit they were wrong because that undercuts their whole reason for being.  So they're going to continue to have this fake narrative and continue to cover up and pretend that nothing bad went on," she said.

Why Kari Lake Couldn't Close the Deal.  The 2022 stolen Arizona governor's election is an ideal template for 2024 — and it is equally a mirror reflection, with all the moving parts, of 2020.  This week, Kari Lake lost, again, in a court that wouldn't have given her a victory had 240,000 citizens signed affidavits saying their ballots were stolen and changed at gunpoint.  The courtroom exhibits may not have swayed the jurists, but those signature mismatches showed plenty of evidence that Kari Lake's election was stolen by a lack of signature verification — and more.  Kari Lake's election is the template for important American elections from now on.  Lake is a massively charismatic MAGA candidate who politicos know has the legs to go the distance.  She handles the press like how a kindergarten teacher handles unruly kids — except the teacher doesn't make the kids look stupid.  Kari does.  Kari lost because she is naturally gifted and could upend established order.  The leftists pulled out all the stops — just like 2020 and, soon, 2024.

This article is very much like an infomercial, but it may be of some benefit.
Closing Signature Verification Loopholes.  In this FIREAXE.ACADEMY presentation we are going to take a critical forensic look at the Arizona Courts ruling regarding the Kari Lake Signature Verification Lawsuit and its dismissal.  I have already narrated the complete Judges ruling and you can listen to my narration [elsewhere].  However, for the sake of education on this critical matter, for use by a wider audience to understand the importance/relevance of this egregious break in our systems, not to mention those who are interested in assuring our elections in the future are safe and secure[,] I am making this particular FIREAXE.ACADEMY session open for all to hear and review.

A lot of Strange Magic going on with voter rolls and registrations lately.  I do not know how it feels to be a Democratic official, to whom the improbable and miraculous seem to be daily occurrences.  Most times, it appears that even if malfeasance is blatantly obvious as a root cause of said miracle, an "Oops," or "Mistakes were made/lessons learned" or similar pablum is enough to extricate said officials or officials from any serious jeopardy.  Then on they go to the next wonderous happening to appear out of the blue.  Excuses, mind you, that would never in a million years fly for the opposition should they find themselves in similar circumstances.  Getting busted on something blatant is a bump in the road to political dominance for Democrats.  It's been a good couple weeks for examples.  The biggest miracle of the week was in the Republican stronghold of Nassau County, New York.

Leftist Reporter Starts Swearing at Press Conference After Kari Lake Shoves the Truth in His Face.  Kari Lake held a press conference on Tuesday following her three-day Maricopa County Superior Court trial fighting Maricopa County's fraudulent mail-in ballot signature verification procedures.  As revealed at trial by Lake's attorneys and Maricopa County's own data, Maricopa County did not accurately verify tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of mail-in signatures; they couldn't possibly have.  Judge Peter A. Thompson again ruled in favor of Defendants late last night, claiming that "level one and level two signature review did take place in some fashion."  This is a complete lie and he knows it.  But it plays into the Democrat Party's integrity-free election plans.  Anything goes.  Everything will be counted.  This is the end of America.  But Democrats want power.

AZ State Senator Borrelli Orders County Supervisors to Comply With SCR1037 Which Bans Foreign Voting Machines in Arizona.  Arizona State Senator Sonny Borrelli put Arizona County Supervisors on notice this morning with a notice to stop using foreign machines in their elections.  Article 1 Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution gives State Legislatures the power to "regulate the 'Times, Places and Manner of holding elections for Senators and Representatives.'"  As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, The Arizona House and Senate passed Senate Concurrent Resolution 1037, setting official requirements for the use of electronic voting machines in the state and banning the use of those that use foreign components.

Judge Hands Kari Lake Another Loss in Arizona.  A Maricopa County judge on Monday night handed former Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake another loss in her latest election lawsuit.  Lake, a Republican and former local news anchor, lost the battleground state governor's race to then-Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, a Democrat, by roughly 17,000 votes — less than one percentage point — in November.  However, Lake has refused to concede the election and filed a lawsuit over the results, alleging that irregularities in Maricopa County prevented her from winning the county, and disenfranchised Republican voters.  She faced her latest courtroom loss after Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson rejected her claims that Maricopa election officials improperly verified the signatures on thousands of ballots, tilting the outcome in the state's largest county that is home to Phoenix against her.

Election Integrity Experts Release Video on Ranked-Choice Voting.  The Heritage Foundation, in collaboration with the Honest Elections Project and Save Our States, has released a video detailing their concerns over the push to implement ranked-choice voting in states and local jurisdictions.  The video features Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, Jason Snead, executive director of the Honest Elections Project, and Trent England, founder and executive director of Save Our States.  Ranked-choice voting is a confusing and chaotic process that forces voters to rank multiple candidates in every race from first to last choice instead of just voting for one candidate.  If no candidate wins more than 50 percent of the first-place votes, then the candidate with the least support is eliminated.  Voters who selected that candidate as their number one choice automatically have their votes changed to their second choice, and another round of vote tabulation occurs.

Maryland Election Technology Not Certified, Requiring Immediate Decertification Of Machines.  Election integrity activist Chris Gleason has uncovered information which may show that technology used with Maryland's election machines was never certified, and therefore Maryland election machines must be immediately decertified.

Governor Hobbs Thumbs Nose at Election Integrity and American Manufacturing.  The integrity of our electoral process is vital to maintaining the foundations of democracy.  Reliable and secure voting machines play a crucial role in the faith, trust, and confidence of our elections.  Knowing and understanding this, the Arizona Legislature just passed H.B. 2613, which would have mandated voting machines used in state elections be made in America.  Furthermore, this legislation would have required all those voting machines to have 100% of their parts and components sourced and assembled in the U.S.  Unfortunately for the people of Arizona, Governor Hobbs vetoed the legislation.  In doing so, she turned her back on American manufacturing and election integrity.

Information Warfare in New York.  [Scroll down]  Although there is a question why the algorithms exist in the voter rolls, it is hard to find a legitimate explanation for their presence.  They perform no clear security function, largely because the voter rolls are public and none of the data is masked.  Likewise, the algorithms likely were not designed to optimize database performance.  This is because, if anything, they seriously retard database performance.  Every county official I've spoken with about this subject (they wish to remain anonymous) has stated they had no idea the algorithms existed.  None had seen any sign of their existence.  This raises an important point.  The algorithm relies on CID and SBOEID numbers.  County officials do not have direct access to SBOEID numbers.  They can access them on an as-needed basis.  Therefore, using the data that is normally available to them in their offices, it is literally impossible for any county official to discover the presence of the algorithms.

K.T. McFarland: FBI, DOJ, and CIA rigged the last 2 elections, and they will rig 2024.  Former deputy National Security Advisor K.T. McFarland, who worked for General Michael Flynn — unjustly forced from office, offers a chilling and highly realistic view of what we face: a coup by the deep state that they are planning to repeat in 2024 because they don't want their crimes prosecuted by a Republican president and AG.  Speaking with Maria Bartiromo on her Fox Business Network program, McFarland laid out the grim reality that, strangely, does not bother any of the people who rage about "protecting democracy" from Donald Trump.  Kanekoa The Great summarizes her views and presents a two-and-a-half minute clip of her.  I urge you to watch the whole thing, as there is a lot of richness that doesn't make it to this summary.  [Tweet with video clip]

'298,000 Ballots in 36 Hours?': Arizona Trial Exposes Suspicious Election Activity.  Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake just dropped a bombshell regarding election integrity in Arizona as the trial for her lawsuit against Maricopa County continues. [...] The Maricopa County trial commenced Wednesday, placing the spotlight on serious allegations concerning election procedures and the rapid processing of a substantial number of ballots.  Lake's claim takes center stage, accusing Maricopa County of failing to comply with state law by neglecting higher-level signature reviews for early ballots flagged by low-level signature verifiers.  Moreover, questions surrounding the astonishing speed of processing 298,000 ballots within a mere 36 hours have sparked additional concerns about the integrity of the electoral process.  Lake's specific allegation focuses on Maricopa County's failure to perform higher-level signature reviews for early ballots with inconsistent signatures.  According to the claim, instead of conducting the necessary scrutiny, all flagged ballots were counted without further examination.  This alleged non-compliance with state law and election procedures raises fundamental questions about the accuracy and fairness of the electoral process.

President Trump Responds on Pennsylvania's 2020 Election.  Here are just a few examples of how determinative the voter fraud in Pennsylvania was:
  •   71,893 mail-in ballots were returned after Nov. 3, 2020, at 8 p.m., according to Audit the Vote PA.  None of these should have been counted according to the U.S. Constitution and the state Legislature, which didn't approve this change.
  •   10,515 mail-in votes from people who do not exist on the Pennsylvania voter rolls at all.
  •   120,000 excess voters are not yet accounted for by the Pennsylvania Department of State — far more votes than voters!
  •   From 2016 to 2020, during my term as president, Republicans out-registered Democrats 21 to 1.  This translated to a 659,145-vote lead at 12:38 a.m. on election night, with "Trump" up a full 15 points.
  •   Hundreds of thousands of votes were unlawfully counted in secret, in defiance of a court order, while Republican poll watchers were thrown out of buildings where voting took place.
  •   39,771 people who registered to vote after the Oct. 19, 2020, deadline, still voted in the 2020 election — simply not allowed.

Every Registered Voter In Republican-Leaning New York County Turned Democrat After 'Human Error'.  Republican and independent voters in Nassau County, New York, this week were shocked to find out that they had changed parties after all the voter information cards mailed out before an upcoming primary mistakenly identified every voter as a Democrat.  The mistake, which drew condemnation from local Republican leaders, was made by "human error," according to Phoenix Graphics, the company responsible for sending out the voting cards. [...] According to local outlets, there are over 500,000 non-Democrats in the county and the mistake will cost about $300,000.

Printer Error Turns Almost a Million Registered Voters in Nassau County, New York Democrat.  A printer error in Nassau County, New York turned every registered voter in the county Democrat.  The printer reportedly botched over 976,000 voter registration cards and labeled every voter in the county Democrat.  Republicans make up over 60% of registered voters in Nassau County which left many Conservatives in the county feeling absolutely blindsided by the error.  Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman told NBC 4 News "We're already starting to get phone calls from people, saying 'I'm a registered Republican, I'm a registered Conservative — how come I'm being identified as a Democrat?  Who changed my registration?'  And they're quite upset about it."

Isn't it strange that every accident, error, machine malfunction, and coincidence benefits the same political party?

Expert Testifies During Second Day of Kari Lake's Election Contest That 3-Second Signature Verification Was Impossible.  The second of three days scheduled for Kari Lake's second election contest trial, which focused only on signature verification problems, wrapped up on Thursday, with Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson declining to grant the defendant's motion for a directed verdict.  Witness testimony focused on the speed that signature reviewers went over voters' signatures on mail-in ballots, with many reviewers taking less than two seconds to compare signatures to see if they matched.  Lake tweeted after the second day of the trial concluded, "John Hancock was one of our founding fathers.  He was a truly accomplished man.  But the thing we most remember him most for is signing his own name.  A lifetime of service summed up with a signature.  A signature means a lot to this country.  It means nothing to Maricopa County."

The Cataclysm to Come.  [Scroll down]  And it all culminates with the elections in November 2024.  Democrats can win only by cheating, and since they did it successfully in 2020, you can expect them to do it again.  While some election integrity measures have been increased in some states, almost nothing has been done anywhere to require open-source computer programming code of voting machines so we can be assured they are counting votes correctly.  Moreover, nothing has been done to prevent voting machines from being hacked to alter election outcomes.  At this point, the left has become brazenly indifferent as to whether anyone even knows of its cheating.  Court challenges almost always go the leftists' way.  Regardless of who is declared the winner, there will be unrest.  There could be a breakdown in civil order nationwide.  If the left loses, leftists will riot and loot in a replay of the 2020 BLM riots.  If the right loses, this will be a turning point, as we can't go on being lied to and threatened by the left.  Another stolen election will break our country.

We've won the culture war, but that's not enough.  True Americans are fed up with being reviled and forced to accept the vilest things as normal.  But as Joe Biden said, "We have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics."  And no Republican Party organization I am aware of is actually tackling the fraud that the Dems have put in place in Elections and Post offices.  Even Donald Trump, with his focus on personal loyalty, has no interest in hiring people who will actually get the job done.  Jay Valentine has extensively documented the fact that Democrat election fraud has many tentacles, all of which can be chopped off easily by local officials if they are willing to look.  We all know about dead people who vote, and there are some, but not enough, of these votes to swing many elections.  Changed zip codes that allow mail-in ballots to be gathered by a cooperating postal worker for Democrat workers to vote are another tentacle.  Multiple elderly people registered at college frat houses, and empty lots with multiple voters are others.  The list is long and distinguished.  And it points out a simple fact.  We have already won the hearts and minds of most Americans.  The truly radical Left that runs the Democrat Party is a small minority of the population.  As long as candidates "paint in bright colors," the Dems won't have a chance to win the vote.  But they can still put more ballots in the box.

The Fingerprints of Fraud.  The General election of 2020 was perhaps the most contentious election in our country's history.  It was certainly the most contested and displayed the most concerning irregularities.  Since the election, many researchers, election experts, and concerned citizens have performed an unprecedented evaluation of the election procedures and data.  Many have found hard evidence of manipulation and fraud at the state, county, and local levels.  To date, the judicial systems of those locales have been unwilling or unable to give a fair hearing to the findings, leaving our country in a divided condition where a majority of the population no longer trusts the election system.

Rensselaer County Officials Indicted for Civil Rights Conspiracy.  Richard W. Crist, age 55, of Nassau, New York; James R. Gordon, age 42, of North Greenbush, New York; and Leslie A. Wallace, age 35, of Troy, New York, were arrested and arraigned today on an indictment charging them with conspiring to violate the rights of Rensselaer County voters in connection with elections held in 2021.  United States Attorney Carla B. Freedman and Janeen DiGuiseppi, Special Agent in Charge of the Albany Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), made the announcement.  Crist is the Director of Operations for Rensselaer County, Gordon is the Director of the Bureau for Central Services of Rensselaer County, and Wallace works for the Rensselaer County Executive's Office.  The indictment alleges that during local elections held in 2021, Crist, Gordon and Wallace conspired to use their official positions, and actual and apparent authority over Rensselaer County employees, to obtain absentee ballots in voters' names through fraud and intimidation; these voters did not intend to request absentee ballots, nor did they seek voting assistance from Crist, Gordon or Wallace.

Biden DOJ Asks Supreme Court to Dismiss Major GOP Election Lawsuit.  The Biden administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court to dismiss a high-profile case in which Republicans want the court to recognize state legislatures' power to regulate federal elections without interference from state courts, which they say the U.S. Constitution requires.  At issue is the once-obscure independent state legislature doctrine, under which Republicans argue that the Constitution has always directly authorized state legislatures alone to make rules for the conduct of federal elections in their respective states.  Democrats say the doctrine is a fringe conservative legal theory that could endanger voting rights, green-light partisan gerrymandering in the redistricting process, and cause upheaval in the electoral process.  The doctrine is at the heart of a case, Moore v. Harper, that's currently being deliberated by the justices after it was argued in December 2022.

The Editor says...
The case has already been argued, and is now in deliberation.  By demading a particular outcome, the White House is interfering with the operation of the Supreme Court.

2024: The End of Elections — or of Election Fraud?  Try this: Trump's popularity and national fatigue with leftist outcomes — transgender beer, rampant crime, invasion of illegals — and America has enough and gives Trump more votes than the other guy in 2024 — obvious to all.  Then, the election is stolen!  The Trump campaign focuses on not getting screwed with ballot-harvesting — blind to the dozen other forms of fraud coming their way. [...] Election fraud infrastructure is layered and multifaceted — it's not simply about mail-in ballots.  Voter registration time-series data shows the active intercession of governmental election commissions altering data, illegally changing voter rolls, giving non-government, leftist actors illegal access to voter rolls during elections — thus rigging elections.

Trump Takes a Hammer to the Carefully Maintained Delusions Inside the Left-Wing Bubble.  But it is left-wing commentary around the 2020 election that is most fascinating.  Pundits like Anderson Cooper speak about it as if only kooks at the local Elks Lodge would be raving about a rigged election, but because Cooper and Co. live in a left-wing bubble, they don't understand that skepticism around the election is far more pervasive than that.  First of all, you don't have to believe that voting machines were hacked, or that millions of fraudulent ballots were collected and counted, to understand intuitively that the election was rigged.  The very best explanation as to how that happened was delivered by a pro-Biden conspirator at TIME, Molly Ball, who speaks of how a "shadow campaign saved the 2020 election":  ["][T]he participants want the secret history of the of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a fever dream — a well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information.["]  I'm not sure that her confession was necessary, but the American people believe her.  According to a poll observed in late 2020, 40% of Americans believe the election was "rigged or stolen."  Of note, only 36% disagree would say that it wasn't "rigged or stolen."  The remainder said that they "neither agreed nor disagreed" or "didn't know."  That's hardly a consensus against the "rigged election" theory.  And when you look deeper, it gets more telling.  Of that 36% who disagree that the election was "rigged or stolen," one-in-three find it "understandable" that others would think it was.  What this means is that only one-in-four Americans agrees that the 2020 election was absolutely honest and fair.

Pressed by Judicial Watch, Pennsylvania Cleans Up Its Voter Rolls.  Judicial Watch settled its election integrity lawsuit against Pennsylvania after the commonwealth acknowledged it removed more than 178,000 ineligible registrations on its voter rolls, the watchdog group announced Thursday [5/11/2023].  The settlement commits the commonwealth and five of its counties to publicly reporting the number of registered and eligible voters, both active and inactive, for the next five years.  "[Pennsylvania] also agreed to publish the total number of address confirmation notices sent to registered voters and the number returned as undeliverable or not responded to," according to Judicial Watch, and "the total number of voters removed from the registration rolls on account of death, or for failing to respond to an address confirmation notice and failing to vote in the two most recent federal general elections."  Additionally, Pennsylvania must cover $15,000 in Judicial Watch's legal costs and fees.

IRS, Inmates, Obamacare Eyed in Biden's Get-Out-the-Vote Plan, Liberals Boast in Report.  President Joe Biden's Executive Order 14019, which requires federal agencies to get involved in boosting voter participation, is a little over 2 years old.  However, members of Congress, the press, and watchdog groups unsuccessfully have sought information on how Biden's order is being implemented.  The Justice Department has claimed presidential privilege to shield related documents from release.  Yet, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights spearheaded a "progress report" on implementation of Biden's get-out-the-vote order.  It was joined by more than 50 other liberal organizations, including the SPLC Action Fund (affiliated with the controversial Southern Poverty Law Center), the American Civil Liberties Union, Demos, Public Citizen, and the Sierra Club.  "The executive order is unconstitutional.  States are supposed to be in charge of election laws," Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C., told The Daily Signal in a phone interview Monday. "The administration has not been telling the American people what they are doing."

Conservatives, Get Busy Ballot Harvesting Or Get Busy Losing.  Joe Biden has announced he will seek reelection as president.  This comes as he is experiencing the lowest approval ratings of his presidency — 37 percent, according to Gallup.  Former President Donald Trump or Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will almost certainly be the GOP nominee.  The blunt reality, however, is that regardless of who the GOP puts up against Biden, they will lose if the party isn't prepared to get down in the mud and beat the Democratic National Committee (DNC) at their own dirty game:  ballot harvesting. [...] While voter fraud exists, the reality is that there was no massive election fraud, the DNC simply worked harder, played dirtier, bent every rule, and didn't care about how they looked as long as they won.  It is a mentality that the Republican National Committee (RNC) will have to adopt.  In politics, it is better to be a dirty winner than a gracious loser.  So what will winning require in 2024?  The first step is to get meaningful voting integrity legislation passed in time.

Kari Lake Lawsuit: Attorney Kurt Olsen Makes Claim of "Extraordinary Findings of Misconduct" By Maricopa County.  Kari Lake and her attorneys appeared in a Maricopa County Superior Court status conference earlier today outlining the schedule for the remanded fraudulent signature verification claim.  Judge Peter Thompson previously dismissed the lawsuit on Christmas Eve, despite the evidence of massive voter disenfranchisement targeting Republicans and obviously false trial testimony by County Elections officials.  As The Gateway Pundit reported, The Arizona Supreme Court ruled in Lake's favor and remanded the "erroneous[ly]" dismissed signature verification fraud count back to the trial court for further review; however, Maricopa County still refuses to allow her legal team or We The People AZ Alliance to review ballot affidavit signatures from the 2022 Election.

How Corrupt Is Our Current Situation?  It's Worse Than Most Can Fathom.  Everything that preceded the 2020 federal election was a complex system of control by a network of ideologues, federal agencies, allies in the private sector, financial stakeholders and corrupt interests all working toward a common goal.  There's no need to go through the background of how the election was manipulated and how the government and private sector, specifically social media, worked to influence the 2020 outcome because you have all seen it.  Whether it was local election officials working to control outcomes, federal agencies working to support them (CISA, FBI, DHS), financial interests working to fund them (Zuckerberg et al), or social media platforms controlling the visible content and discussion (Twitter Files, Google, Facebook etc.), the objective was all the same.  It was a massive one-sided operation against the freewill of the American voter.  In the aftermath of the 2020 election, those same system operators, govt officials, corporate media, private sector groups and social media platforms then circled the wagons to scatter the evidence of their conduct.  If you questioned anything you were a threat.

Patrick Byrne [Publishes an] Article About Smartmatic.  Overstock founder Patrick Byrne has been fighting to expose massive, widespread voter fraud since the stolen 2020 election.  His latest efforts point to an article from Venezuela of all places that highlights the corruption within Smartmatic, a company that has been at the heart of election scandals... at least it would be if our corporate media did its job.

Arizona Supreme Court Reverses Their Own Major Decision.  Arizona's Supreme Court delivered a slap on the wrist to Republican Kari Lake's attorney on Thursday while demanding one of Lake's core concerns finally get attention.  The good news-bad news ruling came as part of Lake's effort to show that misconduct impacted the 2022 election for the governor of Arizona to the point where the victory of Democrat Katie Hobbs over Lake should be thrown out.  Although Lake has lost most of her court appeals, in March, Arizona's Supreme Court directed a lower court to hold a hearing into Lake's allegation that Maricopa County did not follow its signature verification process in the 2022 election.  That has not yet happened, but it will now.

Savor Trump's Electoral Landslide — Until the Phantoms Vote.  RINOs, psyops, controlled opposition like Breitbart and Fox and the grifter consultant class are selling the narrative that Trump wins the nomination bigly — then takes the Electoral College.  Joe Biden is on wobbly knees, at the edge of the actuarial life chart, leaving America with the most ridiculous replacement president.  His own party doesn't want him to run — but the party owners are stuck with him.  That too favors Trump.  Blissfully count the new Senate majority, the expanding House majority, and the keys to a White House that will finally drain the swamp.  Then, have a coffee, sit down and remember 2022.  That felt great too — until the day after the election.  To become president, Trump must win a bunch of swing states.  To win each state he needs more ballots in his pile than the other guy.  It's baked into the data — which we look at every day — that Trump is not going to win those swing states.  None of them.  It's not his fault.  He will probably get more votes, just not more ballots.

Elon Musk Responds To Jarring Ballot Irregularities In Maricopa County.  Maricopa County's ballot irregularities have been making headlines, and now Elon Musk has added his voice to the conversation.  On Twitter, Musk commented on the strange events surrounding Maricopa County's ballot counting and pointed to the county's inability to provide a chain of custody for a number of ballots, which was twice Kari Lake's opponent's margin of victory.  "Strange", he simply said in response to a few jarring irregularities.

A Guide to Understanding the Hoax of the Century.  In February 2021, a long article in Time magazine by journalist Molly Ball celebrated the "Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election." Biden's victory, wrote Ball, was the result of a "conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes" that drew together "a vast, cross-partisan campaign to protect the election" in an "extraordinary shadow effort."  Among the many accomplishments of the heroic conspirators, Ball notes, they "successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears."  It is an incredible article, like an entry from the crime blotter that somehow got slipped into the society pages, a paean to the saviors of democracy that describes in detail how they dismembered it.  Not so long ago, talk of a "deep state" was enough to mark a person as a dangerous conspiracy theorist to be summarily flagged for monitoring and censorship.  But language and attitudes evolve, and today the term has been cheekily reappropriated by supporters of the deep state.

This Red-State Election Reform Is A Big Mistake.  America's descent to hyper-partisanship has led to blindness, especially about our elections.  The Left has become the nothing-to-see-here crowd, where every election is rainbows and butterflies.  They tell us that elections are free from any blemish, any ineligible voters, and any flaws at all.  But the Left's willful blindness is sometimes met with fanciful fears.  Consider the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC). [...] After a campaign against ERIC, accusing it of partisanship and refusal to agree to reforms, seven Republican-controlled states left — Alabama, Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Ohio, and West Virginia.  Now, the Texas legislature is considering a bill to withdrawal from ERIC.  No state should leave ERIC until a replacement exists to deal with people registered in multiple states, and that includes Texas.

Democrats Are The Nigerian Princes Of American Politics.  Finally, in 2020 when Americans went to bed with Donald Trump ahead in the polls in states like Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, only to wake up the next morning to find that Democrat-run cities had stopped counting the votes for hours and, then, when they restarted, Biden was magically ahead.  Again, with straight faces, they tell us a guy who couldn't fill a phone booth for his rallies beat a guy whose supporters overflowed football stadiums across the country, and the guys we see on video walking around with flags inside the Capitol on Jan 6th represent the biggest attack on America since 9/11.  The Nigerian Price scammers are pikers when compared to the Democrats.  All they want is to empty someone's bank account.  Democrats want total control over everyone's lives.

Irrefutable Evidence That the 2020 Election Was Stolen.  On The National Security Hour on the America Out Loud Talk Radio Network, Dr. Mike Scheuer and Colonel Mike were delighted to have U.S. Air Force Lt.  General Thomas McInerney (Ret.) and auditor/author Joe Freid for a discussion of the manner in which Democratic scoundrels and their lackeys cheated Biden into the presidency in 2020.  Though this is a much-discussed subject, the combination of Mr. [Joe] Freid and General [Thomas] McInerney offers a fresh look at the way human and cyber cheating worked to create the absolutely false impression that Biden won more votes than any other U.S. presidential candidate.  To accept that as truth, of course, you would have to believe that 81 million Americans were ready to vote for a barely animate person whose only accomplishments in life — as was clear then and as is clear now — are successful criminality and deliberate treason.  Mr. Freid's most recent book on the 2020 election, called Debunked, An Auditor Reviews the 2020 Election — and the lessons learned, and especially his discussions therein of the obvious cheating in the swing states, the refusal of the country, state, and federal governments to act on the overwhelming evidence of Democratic cheating, and the assistance the Democrats received from government agencies at all levels and in both Republican and Democratic states is breathtaking.

Michigan Democrat Sentenced For Sabotaging 2020 Election Ballot Box.  Yes, the Mockingbird media continues to claim that there is zero evidence of election fraud during the 2020 election.  Yet, here is just another case in which a Michigan Democrat, who was running for town clerk, sabotaged a ballot box in order to win the primary for her town clerk position.  Kathy Funk, 59, was sentenced Monday to six months house arrest by Michigan 7th Circuit Court Judge Mark Latchana.

Michigan Dem Sentenced To House Arrest For Sabotaging Ballot Box In 2020 Election.  A local official in Flint, Michigan, was sentenced to six months of house arrest Monday for misconduct in office after sabotaging a ballot box in her own election in 2020.  Kathy Funk, a Democrat and former Flint Township Clerk, was accused of breaking a seal on a ballot box to ensure that the votes couldn't be recounted.  Funk must wear an ankle monitor and write a public apology for her actions during the election, the Associated Press reported. [...] After votes were cast in the 2020 primary election for her seat as township clerk, Funk sabotaged the ballot box, making the ballots ineligible for a recount, according to investigators.  There was no recount, even though the township clerk won her primary election by just 79 votes.  She went on to win the general election later that fall.  Funk told police that someone broke into the township hall where the ballots were kept and broke the seal on the ballot box.  At her sentencing, the judge admonished her for her break-in theory, the AP reported.

Florida Scores Huge Win for Free and Fair Elections Over Marc Elias and an Obama Judge.  On Thursday, a panel of the 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals handed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis a huge victory over Marc Elias, judicial overreach, and industrial strength stupidity.  By a 2-1 decision, with an Obama judge dissenting, the panel upheld nearly all of Florida's overhaul of voting rules in May 2021.  I would call it controversial, but it was only controversial to people whose lives depend upon supporting vote fraud. [...] Because all of this is common sense, it must be racist.  And almost immediately upon Governor DeSantis signing the bill into law, Marc Elias's Democracy Docket sued using the Democrat AstroTurf group, League of Women Voters (this is the kind of thing that can convince a feminist that the 19th Amendment was a bad idea) as a plaintiff.  The suit landed before Chief U.S. District Judge Mark Walker of the Northern District of Florida, who was appointed by Barack Obama.  So despite Chief Justice John Roberts getting the heebie-jeebies whenever someone comments on who appointed a judge to the bench, that does make a difference.

Pinellas County Elections Officials Refuse To Provide Data Required By Law Which Could Prove Machine Election Fraud.  The Miami Independent has reported for months now on alleged election fraud taking place in the so-called 'free state of Florida'.  Florida is anything but free.  We have highlighted the issue of 'blank ballots' allegedly being produced by election machines and their alleged ability and track record of forging votes unbeknown to the voter.  According to analyst Chris Gleason, this is being done by the machines designating a high percentage of ballots cast as 'blank', and then adjudicating them with software.  We have highlighted the attempt by the GOP-controlled Florida legislature to cover up this alleged fraud by changing legislation (SB 7050) to prevent disclosure of the machine data, which is currently required by Florida law.  Now Pinellas County election officials are refusing to provide election data that is required by law to be released to citizen analysts.  Analyst Chris Gleason has filed court documents to force the release of the reports that could prove machine election fraud on a massive scale.

Virginia Elections Department Discovers Nearly 20,000 Deceased Registered Voters.  The state released a notice last week concerning a Virginia Department of Elections (ELECT) update.  Integral to an improvement initiative, the department is making multiple changes to its "current operations, spurred by both feedback from the field as well as internal evaluations of existing processes."  As part of the upgrade, ELECT has "streamlined the reporting of voters who are known to be deceased."  Going forward, family members will be able to report the death of a relative directly to their general registrar.  And a national database will allow registrars to verify deaths out of state.  Previously, "general registrars experienced difficulties confirming the death of Virginia voters who died in out-of-state hospitals or facilities."  The change seems especially important, given a major Department of Elections confession.  Apparently, administrators haven't been sticklers for accuracy.

Judge Rejects Arizona AG's Attempt to Revoke Elections Agreement With County Recorder.  An Arizona judge has rejected state Attorney General Kris Mayes's attempt to terminate an agreement between Cochise County and the county recorder in a Thursday ruling.  The agreement, which was drafted in February 2023, permits the Cochise County's recorder to be granted control over "almost all of the powers and duties of the election conferred by statute upon the Cochise County Board of Supervisors," the document states.  After the initial agreement was written, Mayes filed a lawsuit in March on behalf of Arizona against the three Cochise County supervisors and the county recorder, citing that the agreement violates the Arizona Constitution and Arizona law, according to the documents filed.

Fried: Here Is the Rot in the Fox-Dominion Settlement.  When Jeff Zucker ran CNN, he famously had company-wide conferences every weekday morning at 9 a.m., and he would instruct his TV personalities regarding the appropriate messaging for the day.  Some employees lamented the straitjacket.  For example, CNN media coordinator Nick Neville candidly expressed hope that CNN "could let the news people decide the news and have the executives stay out of it."  Fox News does not use the CNN approach.  For example, the views of Tucker Carlson on the Ukraine war are diametrically opposite the views of Sean Hannity, and it is also clear that people at Fox had differing views about the 2020 election. [...] This morning I saw a few minutes of MSNBC (my limit) and heard Joe Scarborough wonder if Carlson will now have to stop questioning issues related to the Jan. 6 "insurrection."  That is wishful and rather obtuse thinking.  The Dominion-Fox case was very narrowly focused on the claims of Powell and one particular voting machine vendor.  The issues of election fraud and the Jan. 6 riots are immensely larger.  Unfortunately, people like Scarborough may try to use the Fox settlement as an argument for the increased censorship of anyone who questions the validity of any aspect of the 2020 election or its aftermath.  That could affect people like me because, when I appear on a radio show or podcast, I itemize numerous irrefutable facts that call into question the validity of the 2020 election.  I plan to continue.

After Englebrecht and Phillips Publish Proof of Election Data Compromise, Konnech Corp Drops Lawsuit Against True the Vote.  Last year, True the Vote founder Catherine Englebrecht and election data security analyst, Gregg Phillips, were held in contempt of court and placed in jail for failing to outline the participant sources in a 2020 hotel discussion that revealed a Konnech Corporation election data compromise that was transmitted to Chinese networks.  Eventually a higher court dismissed the contempt charge and forced the release of Englebrecht and Phillips, but the lawsuit brought by Konnech against them continued.  On Monday Englebrecht and Phillips dumped the Konnech election data into open public source format showing the scale of the election security compromise.  On Tuesday, Konnech dropped the lawsuit against Englebrecht, True The Vote and Phillips.

Gov. Youngkin's Election Officials to Remove 19K Dead People from Virginia Voter Rolls.  Election officials, appointed by Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R), are set to remove nearly 19,000 dead voter registrants from Virginia's voter rolls.  This week, Virginia Department of Elections Commissioner Susan Beals, appointed by Youngkin last year, announced that close to 19,000 dead registrants were recently discovered on the state's voter rolls.  The dead registrants were found after officials reviewed death records from the Virginia Department of Health dating back to 1960 that were not previously shared.

Fox News Settles Dominion Voting Systems Defamation Lawsuit for $787 Million.  The trial of Dominion Voting Systems defamation lawsuit against Fox News was to start today.  When the opening statements were delayed by several hours, I suspected there was a last minute settlement.  And there was.

Arizona House Expels Republican Legislator Liz Harris After She Presented Witness Who Alleged Crimes by Officials.  The Arizona House voted 46-13 to expel State Rep. Liz Harris (R-Chandler) on Wednesday after conducting an investigation into her bringing a witness to testify to the Senate Elections Committee, who accused legislators and other public officials of committing crimes.  Jacqueline Breger told the committee that Democratic Governor Katie Hobbs, State House Speaker Ben Toma (R-Peoria) and others executed fraudulent deeds as part of a bribery scheme involving the Sinaloa drug cartel, along with other accusations.  Various legislators say that Harris was not truthful when she said she did not know what Breger was going to say.  But Harris told The Arizona Sun Times it wasn't that she didn't know about the criminal accusations — she had instructed Breger only to address election integrity.

Can We Do Anything About America's Decline?  America's former strength — the most transparent, accurate, and trustworthy elections in the world — have descended into its greatest liability.  In the space of a mere eight years, and especially in reaction to radical political changes made under the cover of the COVID lockdown, we have gone from 70 percent of the electorate in most states voting on election day to a mere 30 percent.  Yet the ballot rejection rate somehow diminished, with the flood of non-Election-Day ballots that overwhelmed accustomed audit and verification.  Election night is a mere construct.  It is mostly meaningless.  Local, state, and federal election results are stalled and descend into days, weeks, and sometimes even months of bickering, counter charges of ballot tampering and fraud, ballot harvesting and curing, and a loss of confidence in the integrity of the final result.

2020 election: The evidence of fraud is abundant!  Why aren't people talking about the 2020 election anymore?  Is it old news?  Millions of us believe it was rigged — which raises the question: Why vote again if the system is rigged?  On Nov. 3, 2020, our votes for president were counted.  Our choices were 1) pro-abortion (senile) Joe Biden who drew no crowds to his rallies and stayed in his basement, and 2) pro-life (energetic) incumbent Donald Trump who drew huge crowds to his rallies and who in only four years had boosted our economy, lowered unemployment, strengthened our military and protected our borders.  The choice was a no brainer.  We watched the count reported on TV.  Trump won.  In the middle of the night, however, everything mysteriously changed.

School board throws out duly elected member, claiming election as an error.  A lawsuit has erupted in Wisconsin after Eric Meadows was elected to a three-year term on the Kenosha Unified School District board, and then after the election he was told it was for a one-year term only.  The Thomas More Society said the controversy developed when a Wisconsin Elections Commission worker said there was a clerical error in the vote.  Now the society has filed a petition in Kenosha County's Wisconsin Circuit Court that details how the public school district insisted Meadows vacate his seat after only a year in office, despite being elected to a three-year term.  Orders from the district came on Feb. 1, 2023, that Meadows vacate his seat.

Envelopes.  Nothing, not one single thing about candidates, debates, endorsements, media support, branding, imaging, leadership, effectiveness, policy, polling, communications, digital outreach, social media platforms, rallies or love of country matters in the 2024 election.  None of it matters.  The outcome of the 2024 presidential contest will be determined by only one thing:  ENVELOPES!  That's it.  That's the sum total of what matters.  Envelopes containing ballots. [...] Debates don't matter.  Did you forget Arizona 2022?  Katie Hobbs giggled when asked about why no debates.  Candidates don't matter.  Did you forget Pennsylvania 2022?  When grunge clad, hoodie-wearing, John Fetterman promoted pancake syrup as the best solution to the Medicare crisis (or something equally as [...] crazy from his compromised mental state).  Rally size doesn't matter.  Did you forget the Biden campaign audiences that could fit into one mid-sized SUV?  Qualifications do not matter.  Intelligence, policy, legislative accomplishments, executive experience, success or lack thereof in any life endeavor, NONE of this matters.  All of these former aspects of the political industry are gone, they have absolutely no bearing on the outcome of federal elections.  The only reason these insufferable discussions still exist is to maintain the illusion of a political business that generates money.

Two More Reasons Why The GOP Has No Chance In 2024.  The GOP has done virtually nothing to prevent the 2024 election from being rigged in the same manner the 2020 election was rigged.  What's the plan to prevent regime-media/Big-Tech censorship?  What's the plan to combat "Zuckerbucks" and copycat Zuckerbuckers?  What's the plan to compete in vital swing-states where election-day has been replaced with a month(s)-long ballot-harvesting contest?

Biden is the most amoral President in US history.  Biden is a dim bulb and the people who engineered his installation as president surely knew that.  Whoever his handlers are, they committed many serious crimes, many breaches of the Constitution, to rig the election, secure in the knowledge that "they," whoever they are, would be running the show.  They surely knew that Biden is a schlump, an empty suit, a man without a moral core; a man they could manipulate and manipulate him they certainly have.  There is more than enough proof that Biden is indebted to China; his family has been fabulously enriched by the CCP's purchase of his servility. [...] Biden will go down in history as the most corrupt, the most nationally and globally disastrous and the dumbest President in American history.

Why 2020 still matters and what to do about it now.  Imagine what things might have been like had the 2020 election been honest. [...] All it took was a manufactured virus that could be used to spread fear and justify suspension of nearly every Constitutional right for almost two years.  Most importantly, it would justify use of near universal voting by mail.  As I wrote in a prior article, a thirty-year-old law had prepared the ground for massive election fraud by enabling the accumulation of invalid voter roll entries — ghost voters — throughout the nation.  Voting by mail allowed these ghost voters to be mobilized to vote for the candidates of the Left.  Because the chain of custody was destroyed by the vote by mail process, millions of votes could be generated, inserted into the election system and counted just like legitimate votes with virtually no risk of discovery.

Idaho Takes An Axe To Ranked-Choice Voting In Elections, And North Dakota And Arizona Could Follow Suit.  Idaho scored a major win for election integrity last month by banning the use of ranked-choice voting (RCV) in elections, with North Dakota and Arizona potentially following suit.  On March 24, Idaho Gov. Brad Little signed HB 179, which prohibits county election offices from using "ranked choice voting or instant runoff voting to conduct an election or nomination of any candidate in this state for any local government, statewide, or federal elective office."  The bill passed the Idaho House of Representatives (56-12) and Senate (28-7) earlier last month.  Under RCV, which critics often refer to as "rigged-choice voting," voters rank candidates in order of preference.  If no candidate receives a majority of first-choice votes in the first round of voting, the last-place finisher is eliminated, and his votes are reallocated to the voter's second-choice candidate.  Such a process continues until one candidate receives a majority of votes.  In addition to Idaho, South Dakota banned the use of ranked-choice voting last month.  Florida and Tennessee also passed similar bans last year.

Is 2024 Only A Mirage?  Will the Democrats again attempt to rig the elections as Biden did in 2020?  Some may say, "We won't let them do that again this time around."  But that assumes they will even care whether you witness their cheating in 2024, which, in turn, denies the truth that, at this point, they have become completely indifferent as to whether anyone even knows of their cheating any more.  This was clearly demonstrated in 2022 with the otherwise inexplicable upset of Kari Lake in Arizona and the equally inexplicable victory of John Fetterman in Pennsylvania.

Kari Lake claims 2024 candidates who do not believe her election was stolen is 'a big red flag'.  Former GOP Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has argued it is a "big red flag" if any 2024 Republican presidential candidate does not believe her 2022 contest was stolen from her.  "I ask you that every candidate who comes through — when they stand on this stage, when they're shaking your hand, when they're walking through town, taking your questions — that you ask them where they stand on election integrity," Lake said at a GOP event in Nevada, Iowa on Thursday, according to the Hill.  "And I think you should get even more specific, 'Was the 2022 election for governor in Arizona stolen?'  And if they won't say 'Absolutely, yes,' that's a big red flag.  That's a big red flag.  Ask all of them."

Donald Trump, Tiberius Gracchus, And America's Imminent End.  [Scroll down]  America has become a tyranny where the people in power no longer feel the need to seek validation from the citizens.  They decide on the outcome and manipulate the numbers to produce the result without even a fig leaf hiding their disdain for citizens.  Whether it was Bernie Sanders in 2016, Donald Trump in 2020, or Kari Lake in 2022, the Democrat party and its entrenched government comrades have decided they no longer need to subject themselves to the will of the citizenry and, if anyone objects, they use the judiciary to crush that person.

Wisconsin Supreme Court Race Marred by Yet Another Voting Machine Malfunction.  Another contentious election, another voting machine controversy.  As reported by local Fox affiliate WLUK, a voting machine in Green Bay broke down and needed to be replaced during Tuesday's election.  "City clerk Celestine Jeffreys said the machine at the Green Bay Botanical Garden wasn't working," WLUK reported.  "Backup machines also did not work."  The city had to borrow a voting machine from Brown County.  "Those machines had been serviced, so we have to take a much more close look after this election as to whether or not we need to purchase new machines and exactly how we can ensure that that doesn't happen again," Jeffreys said.  "It's the same problem we've been having at that ward for a couple of different election cycles."

The Editor says...
Oops!  The voting machines malfunctioned, and the leftist won the election.  Where have I heard that before?

Missouri County Goes Completely Machine-Free with Paper Ballots Only — Massive Win for Election Integrity.  There is now one place in America that will no longer have to worry about faulty machines plaguing our elections.  Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow and one of America's foremost election integrity advocates, made a historic announcement on Frank TV yesterday that Osage County, Missouri became the first place in America to completely ditch machine voting and move exclusively to hand-counting election results.  Make no mistake:  this is a game-changer for election integrity.  Osage County is not alone.  Several counties across the US are moving to paper ballots.  Shasta County in California voted to go to paper ballots recently.  And Nye County in Nevada counts ballots by hand now.

Republicans Need a Tech Manhattan Project.  Republicans are burdened with obsolete infrastructure in both national voter integrity organizations and national party apparatus, that desperately fears change.  They are happier losing than changing. [...] Republicans have no shortage of national voter integrity organizations.  The Fractal team had calls with over a dozen.  In every case, they were completely cool with current technology — ancient SQL-based databases — to fight voter fraud even though it failed in the last two major elections.  They are about donors and Zoom calls — not winning elections.  We showed them tech innovation and they did not want to see it! [...] In the Kari Lake election, you see the elected voter commission changed people's zip codes when ballots were mailed out.  Voters didn't get them — but someone did!  In Nevada, 4,000 or more people are allowed to register at vacant lots!  There were 1,000, then over the 90-day time series (invisible to all current tech from current voter integrity orgs), the number grew to 4,000 as the 2022 election approached.

Exposed: RICO Election Crimes in Washington State.  If you think that the Organized Racketeering (RICO) Elections Crimes being exposed around the country (Arizona, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and other states etc.) are not happening in Washington State, then you are sadly mistaken.  We are on to them, and are finding many ways the criminals are illegally manipulating (stealing) our elections.  As just one example, to see how large scale and serious the election fraud is in our state, go to the Federal Election Commission Website [elsewhere], on the left side of the page type in ANY Zip code in the provided field, and Not Employed in the Employer filter.  You will then see a screen of the names of the Contributors, notice the vast majority of their donations (.01 to $20) end up going to ActBlue (Dem Operatives).  The problem being, the record reflects that many of the individual donors are EACH donating, in many cases, hundreds or THOUSANDS of times between 01/01/2021 and 12/31/2022.

How Was ERIC Used to Steal Elections?  Keeping America's voter rolls "up to date" seems a worthy mission for a non-profit.  That's why 30 states signed up (at one point) to use this supposedly "non-partisan" system.  It turns out that ERIC was not really a "non-partisan" system of course — since it was used by Democrats to cheat in our recent elections.  How was ERIC used maliciously in recent elections exactly?  In a bombshell report, Hayden Ludwig has uncovered records full of coordination between state election officials using ERIC and Mark Zuckerberg's Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR) going back to 2020.  Emails showed election officials in Georgia and Rhode Island sharing voter information from ERIC with Zuckerberg's Democrat activists.  Georgia elections officials actually sent ERIC data to CEIR to generate a list of eligible-but-unregistered individuals (to target with registration mailers) that was sent back to ERIC and then sent along to Georgia!  In other words, ERIC was a Democrat activist group pretending to be a non-partisan voting rights organization.

AZ Senate Elections Committee Chair Senator Wendy Rogers Fires Off Public Records Request to Inspect Maricopa County 2022 Ballot Signatures.  Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers demanded an opportunity to inspect "the affidavit envelopes and signature exemplars from Maricopa County records used in the 2022 election" from the Maricopa County Recorder earlier today [4/3/2023].  Senator Rogers, Chairwoman of the Arizona Senate Elections Committee, fired off the following tweet with a photocopy of her new public records request.  [Tweet]  Maricopa County refuses to provide Kari Lake's legal team with the allegedly fraudulent ballot signatures.  This is despite a recent ruling from the Arizona Supreme Court ordering the trial court to reconsider the issue of signature verification fraud.  Senator Rogers' public records request for "legislative purposes" comes after Maricopa County denied a similar request from Kari Lake's legal team.

Stolen Election Confirmed Again.  Audio recordings from a 1977 interview detailing how the late President Lyndon Johnson stole the 1948 Senate contest in Texas were posted this week on the archival website of the LBJ Presidential Library and Museum on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. [...] When the polls closed in the hotly contested race between Johnson and Texas Governor Coke Stevenson in 1948, it appeared that Johnson's political career was essentially over.  He had lost a previous race for the Senate in 1941, and this second loss probably meant that Johnson would be a mere footnote to history.  In the days following the election, however, it was announced that some uncounted votes had been found in a ballot box, known as Box 13, which, amazingly enough, were all for Johnson, except for two votes, enough to swing the election from Stevenson to Johnson by a margin of only 87 votes — out of over one million cast.  Mark Lawrence, the director of the LBJ Library, said that later research conducted by Robert Caro, who wrote a multi-volume biography of Johnson, including The Path to Power, "essentially reaffirmed" Mangan's 1977 story and built on it.

LBJ's stolen election.  The Associated Press has an interesting walk down memory lane this week discovered in a set of tapes that were donated to the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library and Museum last summer.  On the tapes, a former South Texas election judge told a reporter that the 1948 Texas Senate primary election was stolen in favor of LBJ and he described exactly how it was done.  Democratic officials "found" some extra votes for Johnson in a box that became known as "box 13." [...] As I suggested at the top, the method of election fraud used in 1948 isn't much different than stories that we sometimes hear in the modern era.  We still have election officials "finding" boxes of ballots at the last moment.  Some of those may turn out to be completely legitimate votes while others seem far more suspicious.  Look no further than the boxes of ballots found in an election official's car putting Al Franken over the top in the 2008 election.  So when you see things like that happening, don't be cowed into silence by claims that it's all a conspiracy theory.  Demand transparency.

Forget 2,000 Mules; O'Keefe Points to 2,000 Donors.  Remember the documentary 2,000 Mules, where it was alleged that Democrats were illegally stuffing drop boxes by hiring agents to drop off ballots in the middle of the night?  Well, turns out that's not the only way Democrats have been manipulating elections.  James O'Keefe brings a new allegation of illegal campaign work.  This time via donations.

NY Citizens' Voter Audit Challenges Blue-State Hegemony.  When you first hear about the group New York Citizens Audit (NYCA), you wonder why it took so long for regular citizens to start scrutinizing their own voting rolls. [...] Whatever happens, it's clear that NYCA has started a movement of the people to ask questions and demand answers.  Their goal is an end-to-end audit of the voting process, from voter registration to certification of results.  [Marly] Hornik sees their work as a way forward, toward exposing the corruption of what she calls "blue state regimes."  She concluded:  ["]The Democrats have put their stake in the ground here. ... In the minds of the vast majority of Americans, New York is just crazy.  People in New York are nuts, and they vote for this.  But when you say "New York is gone forever.  California is gone forever.  Illinois and New Jersey are gone forever.  Looks like Arizona's on the fence.  Pennsylvania's gone forever"...you realize they'll never win again in the Electoral College.  So supporting this effort in New York State is actually a national issue for anyone that's interested in ever electing another conservative president.["]

Voter Suppression Is Real And It's Not What You Were Told.  Luzerne County was coal country and once a Democrat stronghold, before Donald Trump ran for president in 2016, when the county voted Republican.  The county's election administration in 2022 was, according to the lawsuit, a "catastrophic failure."  More than 40 precincts had an insufficient number of ballots, many running out early in the morning on Election Day.  The county implausibly blamed high voter interest, but Pennsylvania law requires counties to have enough ballots for every registered voter.  Election workers were sent scrambling to office supply stores for paper, and were left untrained for the disastrous day.  A court had to intervene to allow a few more hours of voting.  Judge Lesa Gelb wrote in her order, "Voters in Luzerne County through no fault of their own, were disenfranchised and denied the fundamental right to vote."  Left-wing groups pressured the county election board to certify the election results, even though the first vote to certify failed to pass.  The county election board bowed to the pressure.

Maricopa County Superior Court Rescinds Order Setting Dates for Kari Lake's Ballot Signature Fraud Challenge.  Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson issued a Minute Entry on Saturday, rescinding his previous order outlining the schedule for supplemental memorandums of law and oral argument.  As The Gateway Pundit reported, Thompson, last Thursday, issued a new order, setting the schedule for review of Kari Lake's signature verification challenge after the Arizona Supreme Court ruled that the trial court must reconsider this issue.

Was Massive Vote Fraud Confirmed with a Fishtail?  Sometimes fraud is so far beyond the pale, so egregious, that it is difficult to accept that it happened.  But evidence can be too blatant to explain away, especially when two totally different sources of information confirm the existence of the very same fraudulent activity.  Such a convergence of evidence occurred in the 2020 election.  An explosive allegation was made: In Pima County, thirty-five thousand (35,000) votes had been added to each Democrat candidate in the election, including Joe Biden.  The allegation was made anonymously by someone claiming that he or she met with Democrat Pima County election officials on September 10, 2020, where a plan to rig the vote was hatched. [...] What does it mean?  It appears extremely likely that those extra 35,000 votes were dumped into certain Pima county precincts, and/or votes were switched between the two presidential candidates.  Adding in the 35,000 phony ballots is what made the turnout rates so high and caused Biden to win the state.

Meet the Young Attorney Who May Have Saved Kari Lake's Election Challenge.  Ryan Heath is a 31-year-old new attorney in Arizona who started The Gavel Project, an "anti-woke nonprofit" that fights for "civil liberties on behalf of victims suffering from the abuses of woke ideologues."  He's filed and threatened lawsuits over masks, CRT, and mutilating children in the name of "affirmative care."  In January, unlike most "conservative" attorneys who run from cases involving voter disenfranchisement of Republicans, due to the risk of being disbarred by left-wing dominated state bars, Heath jumped right in and sued the judge who dismissed Kari Lake's election contest with a writ of mandamus.  He demanded that Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson vacate his ruling and award the election to Lake.  Heath relied on Reyes v.  Cuming, a 1997 Arizona case involving similar circumstances, where voters' signatures on the ballot envelopes were not compared to the voter registration list, which violated a non-technical statute so the court held it was material.  Strangely, the Reyes case was mysteriously suppressed from legal research, so it was almost impossible to find until Heath stumbled on it.

Dominion's Weak Case Against Fox.  The mainstream press has reacted predictably in recent weeks after Fox News's internal communications and witness depositions were disclosed in Dominion Voting Systems' defamation lawsuit against the network.  Blinded by resentment at Fox's success as an alternative media voice, many media organizations offered a distorted narrative — largely parroting Dominion's spin — that the disclosures doom Fox's legal defense.  Commentators from the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and other outlets, gleeful at the prospect of a Fox setback, cheer on as the defamation case heads toward a trial date.  But the real significance of the disclosures is exactly the opposite of what these media outlets claim.  Two things are clear:  First, if the applicable law is faithfully applied, the facts completely upend Dominion's defamation claim against Fox.  [Paywall]

Jenna Ellis Settles Her Ethics Complaint, Saving Herself But Damaging Trump and Election Integrity.  The left is upping the lawfare against conservatives, even attempting to prosecute them, as they proceed to indict former President Donald Trump.  The 65 Project was specifically created to disbar conservative election attorneys.  Any election attorney who dares to get involved in litigation regarding the botched 2020 presidential election, or other elections like Arizona's 2022 midterm where Republican voters were disenfranchised, risks losing their license to practice law due to left-wing dominated state bars.  The 65 Project filed a legal ethics complaint against Trump's former attorney Jenna Ellis in her home state of Colorado a year ago, demanding discipline — including possible disbarment — for public statements she made defending Trump and his efforts to combat election fraud.

Election System Discovered — Used in Multiple States — Internet Connected, Uncertified, and Accessible to Numerous Govt Agencies.  A team of election experts in New Mexico uncovered an election system that is being used in that state and multiple other states that do not comply with election laws.  Election experts in New Mexico established that the post-election canvass reports in all 33 New Mexico Counties are being illegally prepared.  Complete election records are being uploaded to an uncertified, centralized software under the control of the Secretary of State (SOS) called SERVIS, which is then used to create the official election results.  Use of any uncertified software for this part of the election process is a violation of federal and state law.  And according to state law, the SOS is not to have access to the complete election record from any county until the election has been certified.

Kari Lake on the verge of conquering the hell that is election impropriety.  Over the years, Arizona has been in the hot seat for mismanaged and questionable election processes — there's probably not a more well-known county in America than "Maricopa."  Highly-suspicious problems on election day that disproportionately (or entirely?) affect Republican voters and candidates, especially when they occur consistently would indicate the potentiality of a scam; [...] Lake and her legal team alleged that under the direction of Democrat Adrian Fontes, the Maricopa County Recorder's office failed to follow the law during the signature verification process for mail-in ballots.  The overwhelming number of potentially problematic ballots has the possibility to alter the victor of the governor's race, and if these ballots are in fact fraudulent or invalid, the installation of Katie Hobbs could transcend plausible speculation and become proven fact in a court of law.

Arizona Supreme Court Greenlights Review Of Kari Lake Election Fraud Claim.  The Arizona Supreme Court ruled Wednesday a lower court must review one of gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake's election challenges that alleged a ballot counting issue.  Lake lost the election to current Gov. Katie Hobbs by approximately 17,000 votes but has challenged the results.  Lake has argued that a ballot printer issue and the application of signature verification processes in Maricopa County were to blame.  A court of appeals denied Lake's request for review in February to toss ballots she alleges were riddled with errors, thus overturning the results of the election.  Lake's team argues that Republican voters were disadvantaged in Maricopa County because the chain of custody for ballots was improper, according to KOLD.

Auditing Biden's 'Victory'.  I've never heard of Joseph Fried before, and it was only a few days ago that I became aware of his four-month-old book Debunked: A Professional Auditor Reviews the 2020 Election.  But it turns out that this veteran MBA and CPA, who recently retired from his own auditing firm and now writes at Substack, has given us what must surely be the definitive work on the topic.  Having "professionally conducted and reviewed hundreds of audits," he brings his decades of experience in that field to bear on the administration of the 2020 presidential election in each of the six swing states that were awarded to our current dotard-in-chief, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.  Throughout the book, Fried's objective is to "analyze the major claims of fraud or irregularity, the credibility of those claims, the available evidence, and the threshold audit standards the states applied, or should have applied, relative to those claims."

Arizona Supreme Court Sends Essential Part of Kari Lake Election Lawsuit Back To Trial Court.  The Arizona Supreme Court issued a new order on Wednesday, sending a key piece of Kari Lake's Election lawsuit back to the trial court for further review.  "IT IS ORDERED denying review of issues one through five and seven.  The Court of Appeals aptly resolved these issues, most of which were the subject of evidentiary proceedings in the trial court, and Petitioner's challenges on these grounds are insufficient to warrant the requested relief under Arizona or federal law," states the order. [...] As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Kari Lake's lawsuit went to trial in the Maricopa County Superior Court on the issues of missing ballot chain of custody and Election Day machine failures.  The issues regarding fraudulent mail-in ballots and signature verification were tossed and were not considered in trial.

There Are Compelling Pragmatic Considerations Behind Supporting Trump Or DeSantis.  [M]any patriots respect both Trump and DeSantis and would gladly vote for either man.  But they also think that without election integrity, it does not matter whom the Republican party nominates for president.  They believe Democrats plan to steal the 2024 presidential election just as they did in 2020.  And through it all, they are convinced that the UniParty GOP will have done little to nothing before, during, or after.  Patriots must contact their local and state GOPs and ask what they are actively doing to promote fair and honest elections. [...] Many local and state GOPs form election integrity committees that rarely or never hold meetings.  Instead, these committees were created primarily to make Republicans think the GOP is doing something.  Then the GOP uses the nearly non-existent election integrity committee for fundraising.

Fulton County, Georgia, is also contemplating lawfare to derail Trump's presidential run.  Fulton County, of course, is one of the counties in which vote counting stopped for six hours in the middle of the night after the election.  Going into that six-hour pause, Trump was in the lead.  Coming out of it, Biden was in the lead.  There were other significant irregularities in Fulton County, all of which the political establishment protected from any investigation.  And of course, that's all Trump was asking for: An investigation.  Anyone with more than a handful of active brain cells understands that there wasn't some devious plot to undermine elections in Georgia.  Instead, it was a request for an investigation, something that the Georgia political system wanted to block at all costs.  What we're witnessing here, two and a half years after the election, is not the rule of law playing out.  Instead, we're seeing a determined effort to use the legal system to prevent a strong opponent of the Democrat party from running for office.

Biden's Plan to Rig the 2024 Election for Democrats.  Roughly two years ago, President Biden issued an executive order that went relatively unnoticed and has been mostly forgotten by now, but which endangers the integrity of our elections.  Executive Order 14019 instructs federal agencies, some of which are unrelated to election administration, to collaborate with external private groups to "promote voter registration and voter participation."  As innocuous as this sounds on its face, the White House is emulating billionaire Mark Zuckerberg's efforts to influence the 2020 election and turning it into a publicly-funded operation.  That's right:  who needs Zuckerbucks when taxpayers like you can fund Democrat voter outreach?  And before you say that's unconstitutional, since when has that mattered to the radical left that feels entitled to power and will do anything to preserve it?

A Gigantic Egg All Over Brad Raffensperger's Face.  Last week, when Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger publicly supported ERIC after it was tossed out of Florida, West Virginia, and Missouri, we issued the Raffensperger Challenge.  The Raffensperger Challenge is the application of Fractal analysis to any entity that currently uses ERIC.  This week, we finished the first, in Washoe County, Nevada.  Brad Raffensperger says anyone outing ERIC is "extremist."  Today, two more extremists joined in: the secretaries of state of Iowa and Ohio.  Looks like lots of extremists showing up for work.  Is there anyone in politics who believes that elected officials in the two most benign states of Iowa and Ohio are extremist?

The coming Trump arrest is a very dangerous power play.  The economy was booming, China was being constrained, illegal immigration was diminishing, peace was blossoming in the Middle East, and there were no new wars or concentration camps.  Something needed to be done.  Enter COVID.  Democrats use COVID to shut down the economy, close schools, censor speech, and institute mail-in balloting that, in many states, was illegal according to their own constitutions.  Most significantly, they use the self-inflicted death of a felon with major heart disease who'd taken fatal levels of illegal drugs as an excuse to launch the BLM revolution.  And it was a revolution, designed to overthrow the government through hysterical racial division and attacks on America's infrastructure: cities burned, and activists targeted the White House, law enforcement, and the federal judiciary.  The election results are ludicrous.  A hugely successful president who managed rallies with tens of thousands of people despite COVID and who had caused significant numbers of minorities to cross to his side lost to a corrupt, demented, racist, and very stupid puppet who campaigned from his basement, in an election riddled with manifest problems, everything from mail-in voting (with all the evidence and envelopes immediately and illegally destroyed), to counting stoppages in the middle of the night.

Report: Leftist Groups Have a Billion to Spend Influencing Elections and Voting Procedures in 2024.  Left wing groups have a fortune to spend on election and voting procedures in 2024, which means what began in 2020 is only going to get worse.  This is not money that will be spent on campaign ads.  It will be spent on vote harvesting, election workers, getting out the vote, and mail-in voting.  This is what worked for Democrats in 2020 and 2022.  They are not going to drop these methods, they are doubling down on them.

Legacy Media Ignored Voting Irregularities in 2020 Election.  From "Russiagate" to the origin of COVID; from Hunter Biden's laptop to the efficacy of masks; and from Critical Race Theory "only being taught in law schools" to the "security" of our southern border, everyone now knows (including those who know but aren't unhappy about it) that the media have devolved, on issues with a political dimension, into propagandists for Democrats and the woke.  But there's another issue, indirectly related to the Fox case, that the media have bungled ... by ignoring it almost completely:  the many anomalies that attended the 2020 election results.  None of these anomalies turn on questions related to the Dominion machines, but instead, like those here, here, and here, raise compelling questions about the bizarre nature of the vote patterns by time of day, historical results, and multiple other metrics.  Virtually none of the legacy media examined or even reported on these baffling anomalies, instead suggesting that all challenges to the vote were "misinformation," and that all such that went to trial were thrown out by the courts. (That the courts rejected almost all of these cases on procedural grounds without even considering the merits is rarely if ever acknowledged in media accounts.)

Democrat Activist To Resign From Voter Roll Operation After Pressure From GOP States.  After Missouri, Florida, and West Virginia announced their withdrawal from the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) last week, nonvoting board member and founder David Becker tweeted that he would not accept renomination to ERIC's board.  As previously reported by The Federalist, ERIC markets itself as a voter roll management system used by at least 30 states and the District of Columbia.  It operates under the guise of helping states update their voter rolls by removing dead and duplicate registrants and comparing data with other member states.  But ERIC does more to inflate state voter rolls than clean them, as it requires member states to engage in partisan voter registration outreach.  Becker founded ERIC in 2012, but later changed his role to be a nonvoting member of ERIC's board.

Elections Have Consequences; Stolen Elections Have Catastrophes.  "Put the adults back in charge," they whined.  "Donald Trump will break the world," they lied.  Well, they manipulated election rules to certify suspicious vote totals that preposterously portrayed senile Joe Biden as the most popularly elected president in history; censored and locked up anyone who complained; and covered up their crimes with J6 show trials drenched in untruths meant to hide from history the Uniparty's underhanded machinations in outright stealing a presidential election.  The whole mess was so banana-republic-yucky that Biden was inaugurated behind barbed wire and a show of military force befitting the small junta who attended the successful coup's celebration.  And as a result of the Uniparty's installation of Dementia Joe as White House marionette, the American people have been plagued with crime, inflation, political persecution, COVID tyranny, deadly battlefield retreat, open borders, staggering drug deaths, proxy wars, bankruptcies, bank runs, endless new regulations, a plummeting standard of living, economic panic, and social volatility.

Whistle Blower Speaks Up On Illegal Ballots In 2020 Election.  A former top election watchdog in Florida who was fired for citing misconduct among Orange County officials is coming forward with more to say about the alleged mishandling of ballots in the battleground state.  Brian Freid, a whistleblower and former information systems director for the Orange County Supervisor of Elections, submitted an affidavit with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement alleging he witnessed a "gross lack of governance, oversight, rules, ethical standards, and regulations" in the handling of ballots during the 2020 presidential election.

Media Slander GOP States as 'Conspiracy Theorists' for Rejecting Voter Database that Compels Pro-Democrat Outreach.  After Florida, Missouri, and West Virginia announced last week that they would be withdrawing from the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC), a leftist-controlled group that fuels partisan voter outreach under the guise of simple voter roll maintenance, Democrats and their allies in the corporate media have been quick to label such states' concerns as conspiracy theories.  As previously reported by The Federalist, ERIC markets itself as a voter roll maintenance organization made up of over 30 states and the District of Columbia.  It was started by partisan, left-wing activists under the guise of helping states clean their voter rolls, i.e., remove dead and duplicate registrants by comparing DMV and social security data across states.  But according to good government group VerityVote, ERIC does more to inflate state voter rolls than clean them.  Under the ERIC membership agreement, states are required to send voter registration mailers to unregistered but likely — and usually Democratic-leaning — voters.

RNC, Vermont GOP Sue City Of Winooski For Letting Noncitizens Vote On Spending State Funds.  On Thursday, the Republican National Committee and the Vermont Republican Party announced they are suing the city of Winooski, Vermont for allowing noncitizens to vote in school board elections and on education budget referendums.  Two concerned Winooski residents are also a part of the lawsuit.  The lawsuit comes after the Vermont Supreme Court ruled against the RNC's previous lawsuit asking judges to find noncitizen voting unconstitutional.  While the court argued the Vermont Constitution did not categorically bar noncitizen residents from voting in municipal elections, it did find that votes with statewide implications would require United States citizenship, an RNC spokeswoman told The Federalist.  That is why the RNC's lawsuit is narrower in scope this time.  It only argues that allowing noncitizens to vote on Winooski's school board members and education budget is unconstitutional.

Mexican president threatens to meddle in US elections with 'information campaign' against Republicans.  Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Thursday threatened to launch an "information campaign" in the U.S. against Republicans, telling Mexicans and Hispanics not to vote for them unless U.S. lawmakers change their treatment of Mexico — an apparent threat of election interference by the head of state in response to U.S. calls for action against cartels smuggling fentanyl across the border.  "Starting today we are going to start an information campaign for Mexicans who live and work in the United States and for all Hispanics to inform them of what we are doing in Mexico and how this initiative by the Republicans, in addition to being irresponsible, is an offense against the people of Mexico, a lack of respect for our independence, our sovereignty," he said.

The Editor says...
AMLO is wasting his breath, for indeed, Mexicans — even if they "live and work in the U.S." — are not supposed to vote in U.S. elections.

Some are now trying to turn a blind eye to the massive security failure on January 6, 2021.  [Scroll down]  Also, why is it hard to understand that when an election takes place during a pandemic, with millions of people shipping ballots rather than showing up at voting centers on election day, many people would be skeptical about the results of that election, especially when the candidate who lost won the election day vote?  Instead of labeling people election deniers, is it not better to ensure that even the appearance of fraud is eliminated by having most people vote in-person on election day and with proper identification?

Activists Are Screwing Up Wisconsin's Elections.  It's Time To Stop Them.  As Wisconsinites get ready to cast their votes for Supreme Court justice on April 4, one leftist group is busy bungling the election across the state.  Earlier this month, the Center for Voter Information flooded Wisconsin with pre-filled absentee ballot applications to gin up support for Democrats, most notably far-left Supreme Court candidate Janet Protasiewicz.  There was only one problem: The center botched voters' names, creating confusion and alarm in a state already troubled by election mistrust and security.  It got so bad that the Wisconsin Elections Commission issued a warning to voters about the center's "misleading mailers," adding that even the center didn't know how many mailers it had issued statewide.  Worse, no one seems to know what will happen to the countless mis-delivered ballot applications, a further recipe for fraud and election mischief.  But this is far from the Center for Voter Information's first offense — or its worst.

The American Left Rigs Elections Everywhere Else, so Why Wouldn't They Do It Here?  "If we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win," said then-Sen. Hillary Clinton in a 2006 interview with the Jewish Press.  She was talking about an election of the Palestinian Legislative Council (the legislature of the Palestinian National Authority) that was won handily by Hamas, to the chagrin of the United States.  The UK Observer, which listened to the one existent audio recording of the interview, quoted Hillary in October 2016.  At that time, Donald Trump was catching flack for saying that the upcoming presidential election was already rigged.  Hillary's nonchalant admission — that rigging elections is SOP for America's establishment elite — remains just as shocking and revelatory today.

Why Judges Won't Rule There Was Voter Disenfranchisement When it Happens to Republicans.  As Arizona experiences a repeat of the 2020 election, where MAGA candidates allegedly lost to poor Democratic candidates like Katie Hobbs who refused to debate, some are turning on the MAGA candidates and blaming them instead of election fraud.  The candidates' lawsuits are predictably going nowhere, as judges throw them out for supposed "lack of evidence" or narrow technical reasons such as "lack of standing."  The judges pretend that witness testimony and affidavits don't constitute evidence, but every first year law school student learns that of the 11 sections of the traditional Rules of Evidence in law, an entire section, section 6, is devoted to witness testimony.  Witness testimony throughout history has been the smoking gun in many cases; defendants have gone to the death penalty based on witness testimony alone.  Jenna Ellis, former attorney for Donald Trump, tweeted on Friday about Kari Lake's election contest lawsuits, "She hasn't and won't win any of her lawsuits.  It's just fundraising at this point (ie grifting).  I was one of the first that endorsed her and supported her as a candidate, but this will set back the conservative movement for election integrity."

Now convicted felons can vote in Minnesota.  Formerly incarcerated felons in Minnesota will now be able to vote after a new law restoring their rights was signed by the state's governor.  Minnesota Governor Tim Walz signed a bill on Friday which gives convicted felons who have completed their jail time the right to vote.  Now, 55,000 individuals who were previously deprived of those rights can register to vote, the most significant expansion of that right in Minnesota in a half-century, according to the governor's office.

If The Dominion Defamation Lawsuit Is A Slam Dunk, Why Are CNN And The New York Times Lying About It?  Maybe a jury will decide Fox News really is responsible for tarnishing the reputation of a vote-tabulating tech firm.  I don't care.  But if not, maybe CNN viewers and New York Times readers should get ready to sue those two for lying about the details of the lawsuit.  As gleefully told by CNN and the Times, new legal documents prove that prominent Fox executives and primetime hosts knew that allegations from Donald Trump's 2020 campaign advisers about machines manufactured by Dominion Voting Systems corrupting the 2020 election were false, but repeated them to the Fox audience as true anyway.  That would mean Fox is liable for the defamation of Dominion for the purpose of, Dominion says, satisfying the cable channel's Trump-loving audience.  The evidence to back it up — or, as CNN and the Times suggest, indisputably prove it! — is in the court filings by Dominion, which include comments made publicly by Fox personnel and private messages between primetime hosts and executives.

Drop Box Ban Passes in South Dakota House, Bill Heads to Governor.  The use of ballot drop boxes has effectively been banned in South Dakota, with the state House passing the final version of an election bill on Wednesday following the Senate's passage earlier this week containing the amendment adding drop box changes.  The bill is now headed to the desk of Republican Gov. Kristi Noem for her signature.  Noem has in the past expressed support for banning drop boxes in the state.  The bill, HB1165, is a clean-up of absentee voting laws, Republican state Sen. Jim Stalzer said prior to the bill's passage in the Senate on Monday.

How to Lose in 2024.  Industrial-scale fraud, committed by organized actors, accelerates over time like a drug-resistant bacterium.  If you want to know how America is going to get screwed in 2024, follow the dough.  That is the Zuckerberg dough.  Zuck and pals are spending tens of millions of dollars, not padding voter rolls, not fighting lawsuits, not getting voters out early... they are spending the dough infiltrating and controlling election commissions.  For those who think cleaning the voter rolls and voting early are enough protect 2024, our data proves you are delusional.  The Left is all in controlling election commissions.  Expect Kari Lake's outcome to move from an outlier to a standard outcome in 2024. Election commission fraud, which we coined as sovereign fraud two years ago, has attractive characteristics for the Left.  It always works — because it is invisible.

Biden's DHS Just Revealed How It Plans To Use Your Tax Dollars To Interfere In U.S. Elections.  In its latest attempt to interfere in the electoral process, the Biden administration announced on Monday that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is planning to award millions of taxpayer dollars to local governments throughout the country for so-called "election security" purposes.  In an agency press release, the department revealed its plans to provide "more than $2 billion in funding for eight fiscal year 2023 preparedness grant programs," which it claims are designed to "help state, local, tribal, and territorial officials prepare for, prevent, protect against, and respond to" so-called "acts of terrorism."  Under Joe Biden's presidency, DHS has routinely identified targeting "domestic violent extremism" as its top priority.  Of course, such proclamations are never in reference to violence carried out by leftist groups such as Antifa or Black Lives Matter, but rather right-of-center people and organizations that threaten the regime's narratives and policy goals.

Election Reformers Get New Tool to Pressure States to Clean Up Voter Rolls.  A new interactive website database is now available free to individual citizens and election reform groups across the country to help in the fight to get all states to obey a federal election law mandating regular voter roll maintenance.  The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), a national, non-profit, law firm dedicated to election integrity, announced the launch of the website on Feb. 27.  The data provided on the website is designed to encourage some defiant state election officials to comply with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA).  "We hope this interactive database will draw attention to the hundreds of thousands of errors in the voter rolls.  Every error in the voter rolls is a vulnerability in our elections that can lead to fraud and abuse.  Election officials must do their job and keep accurate voter rolls," said PILF president J. Christian Adams in a press release.

Chicago mayoral election results may be delayed DAYS due to mail-in voting.  Paul Vallas, former CEO of Chicago Public Schools is the first candidate for Chicago mayor to advance to the April 4th runoff election.  The AP announced Vallas' victory at 7:45pm EST.  If no candidate wins 50% or more, the election on April 4th will be necessary.  Local News ABC 7 reports that an initial slow turnout "may be due to a surge in voters choosing to mail in their ballots — which could lead to a dayslong delay in learning who makes the runoff."  As a result of this, the results of the election may not be known for days[.]

DC passes bill into law allowing illegal immigrants, other noncitizens to vote.  The Washington, D.C. city council made it official on Monday, illegal immigrants and other non-citizens can now vote in local elections.  The Democrat-run district that serves as the nation's capital went so far as to allow foreign diplomats to cast a vote.  That's according to various reports that the city council passed the Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act after a 30-day congressional review period ended — the GOP-led House pushed to block the D.C.  law from taking effect but the Democrat-run Senate let the clock expire without taking action.  The law requires a person to be 18 and to have lived in D.C.  for 30 days to be eligible to vote, providing they do not claim voting residence in any U.S.  state or U.S.  territory.

With A Split Congress, Democrats Are Taking Their Election Takeover Scheme To The States.  In blue state legislatures, leftists are working to advance election bills that seek to dramatically overhaul state elections by enshrining Democrat-backed voting practices into law.  The widespread effort is an attempt to implement national Democrats' HR 1 policies in states across the country.  Deceptively labeled the "For the People Act," HR 1 was a bill supported by congressional Democrats and President Joe Biden during the early months of 2021.  The legislation was a concentrated bid by Democrats to cement many of the unsecure practices used throughout the 2020 election into federal law and allow the federal government to oversee and control the electoral process.  The measure's many changes to election administration include provisions effectively banning voter ID requirements, mandating universal mail-in balloting, and legalizing widespread use of ballot drop boxes, among others.  The bill furthermore violates core provisions of the Constitution, such as the Elections Clause of Article I and the Electors Clause of Article II, which stipulate that the states, not the federal government, are tasked with administering and overseeing elections.

Proof Kari Lake lost her election.  [Thread reader]  Expert Witness: Democrat Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs, who was Secretary of State presiding over the gubernatorial election against Republican Kari Lake, has a long and demonstrable history of corruption that includes using Mexican cartel money to steal multiple state elections.  The witness Jacqueline Breger, an insurance agent in Arizona, presented compelling testimony and evidence to the Arizona Joint Elections Committee on February 23, 2023, regarding massive corruption and collusion between appointed government officials, and the Sinaloa Cartels.  The money laundering and racketeering scheme allegedly uses fraudulent mortgages, real estate transactions, and insurance claims in Maricopa County to hide money made through drug trafficking, and bribery of elected officials, and to rig elections.  Harris/Thaler Law Corporation has been investigating multi-state racketeering and corruption.  In 2018, Mr. Thaler discovered, in an independent matter, a series of trust deeds evidencing that cash laundering through single-family residences in Arizona was pervasive and ongoing.

Chicago Inmates Claim Guards Are Trying To Get Them To Vote Illegally For Mayor Beetlejuice.  Chicago inmates have claimed they are being pressured to illegally vote in the city's mayoral election.  The inmates, some who are accused of murder, argued guards at Cook County Jail were pushing them to vote - despite some being registered in a different jurisdiction.  They claimed the guards were receiving orders from higher up and were 'just doing what I'm told' when confronted over the move.  It comes amid fears of ballot harvesting as insiders claimed the jail was the 'ideal environment' due to no cameras or election observers.  [Video clip]

Los Angeles County Scrubs 1.2 Million Names from Bloated Voter Rolls Thanks to Work by Judicial Watch.  Los Angeles County removed 1,207,613 ineligible voters from their voter rolls as part of a lawsuit settlement with Judicial Watch.  [Tweet]  Judicial Watch reported in January 2020 that the organization had found MILLIONS of extra registrants on voter rolls across the country.  The organization warned several states that lawsuits were coming if they did not clean up their voter rolls.

Writing code to flip votes 'very easy to do' but 'hard to stop,' programmer warns Arizona Senate.  A computer programmer testified this week to an Arizona Senate committee that voting machines are susceptible to manipulation as the panel seeks to require that voting machine components are made in the U.S.  and that the source code for the machines used in the state is available to government officials.  Attorney and computer programmer Clinton Eugene Curtis told the Arizona Senate Election Committee Monday that there are multiple ways voting machines can be hacked to change election results.  Curtis, a Democrat, began his presentation with a video clip of him testifying before Congress following the 2004 presidential election about how he believed that the election in Ohio was hacked.  In the video, Curtis explained that in 2000, at the request of a Florida politician, he created a program that "would flip the votes 51-49 to whoever you wanted it to go to and whichever race you wanted to win."  He added that elections officials wouldn't be able to detect such a program.

The Solution to Ballot Fraud.  The irresistible force is mail-in ballots, nonexistent signature verification, phantom voter rolls, a feckless Republican Party, Republican governors donating tax money to a George Soros-funded entity to clean voter rolls — election commissions changing ZIP codes so mail-in ballots stack up — courts refusing to remove dead people from voter rolls unless they miss two consecutive elections, and a Republican presidential candidate who thinks he can win with ballot-harvesting.  What could go wrong in 2024?  In 2000, the national realization was that election fraud is industrial-scale, committed by election commissions or with their acquiescence.  It is a sovereign crime.  The 2020 realization is that voter integrity teams cannot remove phantoms from voter rolls — even with death certificates.  This irresistible force will not dissipate.  Wisconsin advanced the state-of-the-scam to further flood voter rolls with anyone claiming existence.  Forty years of Republican acquiescence and temerity brought us here — the end of free and fair elections.  Election fraud is baked into every state's voter rolls — protected by government.

Social media mogul funds recruitment of progressives to administer elections.  The injection of private money into public election administration — or "Zuckerbucks" — is continuing in a new form, as left-leaning candidates are being recruited to run for local elections offices by an organization that receives funds from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.  The U.S.  Alliance for Election Excellence, a project of the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), is awarding funds to counties and municipalities under the Centers for Election Excellence program.  The alliance will provide $80 million over five years "to envision, support, and celebrate excellence in U.S.  election administration," according to CTCL.  CTCL poured nearly $350 million into local elections offices managing the 2020 election, with most of the funds donated to the nonprofit by Zuckerberg.  The nonprofit has claimed its 2020 election grants — colloquially known as "Zuckerbucks" — were allocated without partisan preference to make voting safer amid the pandemic.

Trump rages at Mark Zuckerberg amid claims group linked to Facebook boss gave $2 million to Georgia elections board.  Donald Trump is calling for Mark Zuckerberg to be prosecuted amid revelations a group linked to him gave $2 million to the Georgia elections board.  The former president laid out the allegations against the Meta CEO on his Truth Social platform on Sunday while sharing an article about the controversial donation.  'He [Zuckerberg] cheated on the Election(s).  The whole system is RIGGED.  Why isn't he being prosecuted?  The Democrats only know how to cheat.  America isn't going to take it much longer!' he wrote.

Election-Rigging from Abroad?  I Am Shocked, Shocked!.  Forget about the stories about the Israeli judicial reforms. Its critics are exaggerating, but now we have another exaggeration about Israel floating up to the top of the news.  Some Israelis — supposedly affiliated with a firm called Team Jorge — have been caught rigging elections. [...] I have no doubt that something was going on.  But the fact that it was exposed leads me to believe that the firm was not that competent, or it would not have been exposed.  When it comes to hacking, it is a signature of teenage hackers to brag about their exploits.

AZ Senate/House Elections Presenter Claims That Sinaloa Cartel Uses Bribes, Money Laundering, Election Fraud to Control Elected Officials.  Tempe Police Interim Chief Josie Montenegro, Phoenix DEA Special Agent in Charge Cheri Oz, and questionably elected Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes held a joint press conference Thursday to discuss the massive narcotic seizures in the Phoenix area, including over four and a half million fentanyl pills and over 140 pounds of fentanyl powder.  These dangerous drugs primarily come from criminal illegal drug traffickers with the Sinaloa Cartel, says Cheri Oz.  It is unclear how many narcotics were seized in 2023 to date.

Why the 2020 Election was Unverifiable.  Joe Biden acquired his job through a legal process.  However, he did not earn enough verifiable votes to justify the certifications in six key swing states.  This issue is addressed in my new book, but here is some of my reasoning.  I have limited myself to one example of unverifiable votes for each of those swing states.  At an Arizona Senate Committee hearing on January 24, 2022, we learned that precisely 95 percent of Maricopa County overseas military members (and their families) voted for Joe Biden.  That is an amazing (as in phony) percentage, given that the overall county-wide vote was fairly even between Biden and Trump (51 to 49%).  Winning the military vote in Maricopa County with a 90 percent margin strongly suggests the likelihood of fraud.  The findings were presented at the Committee hearing by Paul Harris, a corporate executive who had been asked to conduct the review during the Cyber Ninjas audit.  These are key points from the presentation.
  •   The "ballots" were simply unsourced sheets of copy paper.
  •   The number of ballots had jumped dramatically, from 1,600 in 2016 to 9,600 in 2020.
  •   Exactly 95 percent of the votes were for Joe Biden.  Harris estimated that these copy paper ballots provided 8,000 net votes to Biden, who ostensibly won the state by just over 10,000 votes.
Paul Harris analyzed just one county.  In Pima County, a witness named Kathleen Alby testified that "thousands" of "military faxes" were processed:  "At one point that's all that they were processing were the faxed ones."  And, as in Maricopa County, there was no chain-of-custody documentation.

Key Dominion exec admitted company products 'riddled with bugs' days before 2020 vote: Fox lawyers.  Dominion Voting Systems employees have acknowledged serious problems with the company's technology, saying, for example, that a bug led to "INCORRECT results," according to discovery cited in the defense brief in Dominion's defamation lawsuit against Fox News.  Dominion is suing Fox News for $1.6 billion for defamation after becoming a target of alleged conspiracy theories regarding its voting machines being hacked and flipping election results.  In a legal brief made public Thursday, the news outlet cited information obtained from Dominion through discovery.  In a 2018 email Fox News obtained from Dominion Director of Product Strategy and Security Eric Coomer, he acknowledged the company's technology was marred by a "*critical* bug leading to INCORRECT results."

SCOTUS again denies hearing 2020 election case alleging Biden, Harris, lawmakers ignored fraud.  The Supreme Court announced Tuesday [2/21/2023] it will not hear a 2020 election lawsuit against former Vice President Mike Pence, President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, 291 House members and 94 senators, after a petition to reconsider was filed last month.  The lawsuit alleges the respondents violated their oaths of office by refusing to investigate evidence of fraud in the 2020 election before accepting the electoral votes on Jan. 6, 2021, allowing for Biden and Harris to be "fraudulently" inaugurated.  The court held a private conference Friday to vote to reconsider whether to hear the case, releasing its decision Tuesday.  Four of the nine justices must vote to hear a case for it to move forward.  After the Supreme Court initially declined on Jan. 9 to hear the lawsuit filed by Raland J. Brunson.  He filed a petition on Jan. 23 for reconsideration.

To Save Wisconsin Elections, Republicans Must Kill Automatic Voter Registration.  On the extensive list of ugly election "reforms," you'll find automatic voter registration at the very top.  No wonder Democrat Gov. Tony Evers, who's never seen a far-left idea he didn't like, wants to dump it on Wisconsin.  Republicans, don't be fooled by claims of "saving democracy" or "protecting voting rights" — thin cover for a "progressive" power grab.  Automatic voter registration is the surest way to cripple Wisconsin's already questionable voter rolls and hand Democrats a permanent advantage in future elections.  These are the facts left-wing activists don't want you to know.

California Democrat Arrested, Charged With Mail-In Ballot Fraud.  A California city council member was arrested for allegedly committing election fraud.  Lodi City Council member Shakir Khan, a Democrat, was arrested on Thursday for multiple election fraud charges, including allegedly stashing 41 mail-in ballots at his home, falsifying voter registration documents, and pressuring residents to vote for him.  Investigators claim, based partially on body cam footage of police interviews, that Khan registered 23 people to vote at his home address and used his phone number to register 47 people to vote.

Supreme Court or Bust: Kari Lake Is Taking Her Lawsuit Onward and Upward.  Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake is setting her sights on the highest court in the state after the Arizona Appellate Court affirmed the superior court's decision to confirm Democrat Katie Hobbs as the state's governor.  Lake has previously filed a lawsuit against Maricopa County election officials and former Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, presenting evidence of widespread election irregularities and problems on Election Day in November 2022, therefore challenging the legitimacy of the gubernatorial election results.

The Democrat War on Election Integrity Continues.  ntil a couple of decades ago, voting in the United States was a straightforward exercise that required registered voters to appear at local polling places on Election Day and cast their ballots in person.  A small number were permitted to vote absentee if they were stationed overseas in the military or could show that they were otherwise unable to get to the polls.  This system, with minor variations, was used in all 50 states and revealed the winners of most elections with alacrity.  Though not perfect, it was generally efficient, secure, and trusted by the vast majority of voters.  Nonetheless, in the late 1990s, the Democrats began pushing for a number of fundamental changes to this system.  They insisted that it contained all manner of "flaws," but the actual impetus for "reform" was their decreasing ability to win majorities in federal and state elections.

Fox vs. Dominion Discovery Docs Show Employees Admitting Product "Riddled" With "Critical Bug".  In the wake of the 2020 election, there were widespread questions about the legitimacy of the election and even accusations of fraud, specifically pertaining to Dominion Voting Systems.  Fox News was willing to discuss the questions and concerns of many Americans even though they didn't fit the reigning Leftist narrative of a free and fair election with absolutely no ballot harvesting or manipulation of votes.  You know, the narrative where it's totally normal to take days to count votes and end up with middle-of-the-night ballot dumps overwhelmingly in favor of Democrats, ending with demented Joe Biden being the most popular president in history.  So Dominion Voting Systems sued Fox News for daring to report these questions and concerns.

Judge Overrules Board of Elections' Refusal to Recount Ballots in Sharp Rebuke.  It starts at the precinct level — the smallest political entity that may be a few city blocks or, in less populated areas, a few square miles.  And here's the deal in the Keystone State:  If only three voters in a precinct think there's a problem with an election, those voters can file a petition with the county election board and, until the issue is resolved, the election board cannot certify the election.  But the Chester County Board of Elections thought otherwise, despite valid petitions to recount ballots from the November election.  When the voter recount petitions went before Judge Jeffrey Sommer in the Chester County Court of Common Pleas, Sommer scheduled a hearing to examine the claims, the Delaware Valley Journal reported.

Kari Lake vows to take Arizona gubernatorial defeat to state supreme court.  Election denier Kari Lake promised to take her gubernatorial defeat lawsuit to the Arizona's supreme court after it was tossed for the second time on Thursday — less than two months after it was rejected by a Maricopa County judge.  The ruling from the Arizona Court of Appeals — the second and penultimate tier in the state's court system — came as the latest defeat for Lake, who in December lost the race to be Arizona's next governor by about 17,000 votes.  Immediately chalking up the loss to voter fraud, the 53-year-old former Phoenix journalist filed a suit alleging that problems with printers and election day protocol cost her a victory over Democrat Katie Hobbs.

The Editor says...
If the entire state of Arizona is corrupt, it won't do any good to appeal to the state supreme court.  And if that is the case, it wouldn't do any good to hold the office of Governor.  Or to vote.

Mattress Mack files lawsuit over elections issues in Harris County.  Houston businessman Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale, affectionately known as "Mattress Mack," has filed a lawsuit over issues with the 2022 midterm elections in Harris County.  McIngvale made the announcement Tuesday alongside media consultant, Wayne Dolcefino.  According to a news release, the lawsuit was filed as a way to "force transparency in our elections."  The lawsuit alleges the case is about providing the public with access to information to "ensure trust and confidence" in Harris County elections.

The 'DeSantis Is Trump Without the Baggage' Crowd is in for a Rude Awakening.  The first and most important angle to consider when analyzing this stance is the present reality of American elections.  President Trump's seemingly insurmountable election night leads in 2020, which were significantly larger than his leads throughout the night in 2016, somehow vanished into slim Biden victories.  In other words:  Without our corrupt election systems being corrected, it doesn't matter who runs since the winner is predetermined.  Trump didn't cost us; the election was stolen.  But for the sake of this discussion, we'll say that our elections are free and fair.  Despite his alleged loss, Trump gained more than 12 million votes from 2016 (and likely more,) the largest increase in vote total for any sitting president in American history and the highest vote total by any presidential candidate ever, aside from Biden's highly suspicious 81 million votes that same year.

The GOP will win by making voting harder for everyone.  Now that the midterms are over, this is not the time to relax.  Here is an early warning for the GOP:  Today is the day you must begin securing 2024's election.  Not a year from now.  Not six months from now.  Not next week.  Today.  Make voting much, much harder for everyone. [...] Vote harvesting must end.  No one should be permitted to submit ballots in any other person's name.  Thousands of "harvested" ballots were submitted by live people on behalf of dead ones, people who were coerced into voting a certain way, and people who were paid for their Democrat votes.  We learned via Dinesh D'Souza's expose, 2000 Mules, that drop boxes were being stuffed with phony ballots to a degree that would make Chicago blush.  Suspect machines and printers were used in Arizona, no doubt tampered with so that wait times to "fix" the machines were often several hours long, disallowing a voter to vote.  In this way, votes were suppressed.  Kari Lake should have won her election, but her voters were turned away and told to go to another precinct sometimes hours away and with long waits once again.  This was deliberate and obvious fraud in only her heavily Republican county.  All voting machines should be tested a week before the elections, again on voting day before polls open, and any anomalies fixed before polls open.

It's time for Republicans to get creative in the election integrity fight.  It goes without saying that voter fraud is nothing new.  Think Tammany Hall and Chicago's "city bosses," including Cook County in the 1960 presidential election.  Or read "Means of Ascent," Robert Caro's masterful account of "landslide" Lyndon's shenanigans at the ballot box during his 1948 Senate run-off in Texas.  And who can forget (except the media) the more recent FBI investigation into the corrupt "community organization" ACORN that resulted in the arrests of eight workers in St. Louis for a host of election law violations?  Pretending voter fraud doesn't exist is political strategy, not reality.  That's why partisans screaming the loudest at so-called "election deniers" have to rely on gaslighting and online censorship.  The Democrat/Media complex looks at ballot integrity precisely the same way it looks at climate change or vaccine mandates — there is no debate.  Of course, it's political crossdressing on an epic scale.  Democrats who've made a career of questioning elections suddenly irate over the sloppiest one in modern memory?

South Dakota House Passes Bill to Ban Use of Absentee Ballot Drop Boxes.  The South Dakota House of Representatives has passed a bill that would make it illegal to deposit absentee ballots in drop boxes for all elections.  This bill, which would require all voters to return mail-in ballots either by mail or in person, was advanced to the state Senate after the lower chamber voted 57-11.  The new legislation would prohibit the distribution of pre-filled mail-in ballot applications, as well as increase punishment for mail-in voting misdemeanors.  In addition to the restrictions placed on turning in absentee ballots, county auditors will also be unable to send out absentee ballots following the Monday before Election Day.  Republican state Rep. Kevin Jensen praised the legislation, saying, "It will clean up our elections.  It doesn't infringe on anybody."

Maricopa Heat Maps: The Story Keeps Getting Worse.  Last week at the "Save Arizona" rally, Republican candidate for governor Kari Lake made a startling revelation.  She started by showing a picture of the "Heat Map" of Republican voter turnout located in the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center (MCTEC).  The heat map was first disclosed by Richard "The People's Pundit" Baris and reported on by UncoverDC (UDC).  Lake next showed a map of voting centers that experienced highest rejection rates of ballots being run through tabulators on Election Day 2022.  When the two maps were overlaid, the results — though not completely unexpected, as Baris had alluded to it on his Inside The Numbers podcast — were stunning nonetheless.  A closer look at the map really tells the tale.  The red "pins" represent the Voting Centers that had a 50% or higher ballot rejection rate with their tabulators.  The blue pins represent locations with lower rejection rates but still experienced issues.  The Voting Centers with the highest rejection rates almost entirely fall within the heaviest concreted Republican areas or just on the outskirts.

Christina Bobb Knocks it Out of the Park.  One has to admire the brilliant highjacking of the American election process.  It was multi-level, using hundreds, if not thousands of tactics, and planned down to the last compromised County Councillor and State Elections Official.  Laws were ignored, ridden over, broken, transduced and corrupted into worthless paper.  Last week Christina Bobb, one time OAN anchor, former Marine and Judge Advocate, now President Trump's attorney, released her book describing what happened after the 2020 steal.  Bobb covered the election on the day, and in the weeks afterwards travelled ceaselessly, reporting on the aftermath.  At one juncture she started raising money to fund investigations.  She flew politicians to the Arizona audit and followed every court appearance.  Her book is an exciting, infuriating, massively valuable account of what happened.

Arizona is corrupt.  Just the News published a great article that I encourage you to read.  The recently stolen role of Secretary of State in Arizona is currently occupied by Adrian Fontes.  Fontes is seeking to have Lake prosecuted for tweeting evidence from the public Senate hearings, specifically regarding the mismatched ballot signatures that we've all seen a thousand times by now.  So what's really happening here.  Well, Katie Hobbs and her organized crime crew — the same Katie Hobbs that abused her power by requesting her political opponent be censored in an election she was overseeing and competing in and who threatened to have election officials arrested for not certifying her fraudulent election — is now attempting to intimidate Kari Lake for questioning her and her gang's corruption.  If we the people, don't stand up to this, we can kiss our elections goodbye; our votes will never count.  This election was stolen, and the evidence is as clear as day.

Your Government Wants to Keep You from Seeing Voter Rolls.  The narrative about "free, safe, secure elections" changed 180 degrees since November 2022.  Almost nobody is crazy enough to say America has free, fair elections.  After Kari Lake and Adam Laxalt, the most wimpish George Bush RINO hesitates to say "elections are fair."  Since our team processed billions of election roll "snapshots" taken since 2020, we run the largest election database in the world.  We concluded that U.S. elections are rigged by both parties, and they are rigged with the active help of election officials or their acquiescence.  Sovereign fraud — institutional election fraud by your government, first discussed on American Thinker — is real.  We have the data to prove it! [...] Why was the election fraud, which existed years before Trump became a candidate, so invisible?  Election officials of both parties do not want pesky citizens looking at voter rolls.  We know this because we have been in the room with them, virtually, demonstrating the most egregious voter roll anomalies, and they just refuse to see them.

When Will California Realize Its Vote By Mail System Is A Total Disaster?  The California Secretary of State just issued data that show the 2022 election was a mess.  Why?  Because of vote by mail.  Indeed, this was California's first election that relied on the United States Postal Service to get the mission accomplished.  In September of 2021, Sacramento passed new legislation that said everyone registered to vote — dead or alive — is automatically sent a ballot in the mail, every election.  That might sound good, but the new data prove that mass vote by mail should have remained a pandemic experiment.  An analysis by the Public Interest Legal Foundation shows over 226,000 mail ballots were rejected by election officials.  That's a quarter million citizens who thought their ballot would count, but it didn't.  The number one reason for rejection was the ballot arrived too late.  That's what happens when you put the post office in charge.  The United States Postal Service has a 94% success rate for timely delivery of political mail.

Arizona voting patterns challenge the Democrats' 2022 election narrative.  Did Trump-endorsed candidates really lose in Arizona?  Currently, the debate is about specific acts of election interference in Maricopa County.  However, looking at election patterns across Arizona, there's a compelling argument to be made that Trump did not lose Arizona and that only chicanery can account for Maricopa's gubernatorial and other high-office outcomes.  Kari Lake has been busy assembling evidence showing that Arizona's 2022 November election was manipulated in the statewide races thanks to shenanigans in Maricopa County.  However, it's easier to understand the corollary evidence for this accusation, which lies in the simple reality that, statewide, Arizonans voted for House Congressional Republican candidates by a large margin — 56.4% to 42.8% over Democrats.

Who is running our government?  [Scroll down] Pelosi's Congress was no slouch either and impeached him a second time, even after he left office (with the first impeachment over a phone call!).  Then came the most stunning election upset in history, after Joe Biden stayed in his basement for the entire election campaign while the media campaigned for him.  Biden brought nothing to the election — no soaring rhetoric, no catchphrases, no crowds, yet somehow not only unseated Trump but also garnered the most votes in American history.

Governor Abbott: election irregularities in Harris County may necessitate new elections.  Harris County Texas is huge.  If it were a state it would rank 25th in population, just behind Alabama.  Almost 5 million people live there.  Nine members of the U.S. House of Representatives hail from or represent the county, as well as 24 state representatives.  At its center is Houston, which is reliably Democrat, but the county as a whole is a swing district these days with both Democrats and Republicans winning elections.  In other words, how well the elections are run matters a lot, not just to the citizens of the county itself, but to the overall balance of power in the state and country.  Guess what?  The elections were run rather poorly last year.  So poorly, and suspiciously so, that Governor Greg Abbott is suggesting that new elections may have to be held.

State Lawmakers Should Follow The RNC's Lead And Reject Ranked-Choice Voting.  While most corporate media coverage of last week's Republican National Committee (RNC) meeting was devoted to the contested leadership race between Ronna McDaniel and Harmeet Dhillon, the organization's conference yielded a significant win for election integrity.  During the meeting, RNC members unanimously passed a resolution rejecting the use of ranked-choice voting (RCV) in U.S. elections.  In an RCV system, voters rank candidates in order of preference.  If no candidate receives a majority of first-choice votes in the first round of voting, the last-place finisher is eliminated, and his votes are reallocated to the voter's second-choice candidate.  Such a process continues until one candidate receives a majority of votes.

This #GoogleLeaks thread could be a bigger deal than the Twitter Files.  In a "Twitter Files" style thread, one independent journalist made the case for Elon Musk to further expose the unseen machinations of his social media company based on 2019 leaks that demonstrated Google's influence over elections.  Going by the name KanekoaTheGreat, the previously banned account that was restored by the billionaire entrepreneur, took to Twitter Monday with a link to a September substack he posted that declared "Google Rigged The 2020 Election."  The piece called back to the 2019 report by Project Veritas which spoke with Google insider Zachary Vorhies who leaked nearly a thousand pages of internal documents that detailed alleged censorship and suppression of conservative content.

Arizona Regime Is Investigating Kari Lake For Exposing Election Fraud.  The newly selected regime heading up Arizona's top statewide offices is now targeting Kari Lake with potential felony charges for speaking out against the rigged election in Arizona.  Questionably elected Arizona Secretary of State Adrian Fontes, a former lawyer for Mexican drug cartels, sent out a new letter on Monday, asking questionably elected Attorney General Kris Mayes to "investigate and take appropriate enforcement action against Kari Lake" for sounding the alarm about the stolen 2022 Election.

The Case against Trump 2024.  [#2] Elections.  When asked if the 2020 votes were fairly counted, my response is "I don't know, and neither do you."  The numerous anomalies make the answer unknowable.  What we do know is that the often illegal changes in the election laws in several states mean that the election was neither free nor fair.  For example, the mass mailing of ballots invites votes from people who either are dead or have moved away.  The bigger problem is that mass mailing denies everyone a secret ballot.  A ballot-harvester who knows you have a ballot could be an employer, a union leader, or a gangbanger.  Trump used these anomalies to naïvely insist that he be installed as president and that Kari Lake be installed as governor of Arizona — too little, too late.  That talk more than anything else will cost Trump the 2024 election, by costing him independent voters, who view these demands as attempts to override the Constitution[.]  The time to fight voting problems was before the election.

Top-to-Bottom Vindication for Georgia's 2021 Election Law.  As Dominic Pino pointed out yesterday, a recent University of Georgia poll hammers yet another nail in the already firmly shut coffin of the spurious "voter suppression" allegations about Georgia's voting laws.  In the poll, none of the respondents had a poor experience with voting:  ["]That's right:  0 percent of black voters in Georgia said they had a poor experience voting.  Zero.  On the positive side, 72.6 percent of black voters said their voting experience was excellent, almost identical to the 72.7 percent of white voters who said so.  Only 0.8 percent of black Georgia voters rated the job performance of election officials[."]

Tracking a Fraudulent Ballot in Real Time.  If you do not think the government's election commissions are in on the massive voter fraud inherent in every state's voter rolls, you can stop reading here — because they are, and we can prove it in state after state. [...] Anyone can compare voter rolls with NCOA (the National Change of Address database) and find people who moved.  Any high school math kid can run statistics against voter rolls and find anomalies growing on trees.  Any tech quant, living in his parents' basement, can run an obscure algorithm showing vote numbering inconsistent with historical patterns.  Come to think of it, in 2021 and 2022, these guys were everywhere — and they didn't remove fake voters.  Time to move on — they failed, and the Republicans failed with them.  We know phantom voters are the seed bed for fake ballots.  The ballots aren't fake — they are quite real, but called "fake" because they aren't voted by the name on their envelope.  We know that fake ballots are mailed, at industrial scale, to legitimate voters, fake voters, dead voters, voters who moved.

'I'm going to win': Kari Lake sets the record straight on gubernatorial fight, Senate rumors.  On Wednesday, Arizona's Kari Lake addressed speculation that she may be angling for a Senate run following her unsuccessful gubernatorial race.  While speaking to reporters at the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach where the Republican National Committee winter meeting was taking place, Lake completely dismissed the rumors.  "I'm going to win this," she stated, referring to her lawsuit regarding the 2022 gubernatorial race, which was called for her Democrat opponent Katie Hobbs.

Shelby Busch Discusses Over 1,800 BLANK Ballot Envelopes, Dead Voters, Incorrect Signatures In Maricopa County.  We The People AZ Alliance co-founder Shelby Busch joined Steve Bannon's War Room on Wednesday to discuss the bombshell findings from the group's Monday presentation on 2022 Election failures in Maricopa County.  The newly formed Arizona Senate Elections Committee, chaired by State Senator Wendy Rogers, heard this presentation on Monday.

How Democrats Stole Pennsylvania in 2020.  My former OANN colleague Christina Bobb has shared an exclusive excerpt from her new book Stealing Your Vote — which came out today. [...] From Stealing Your Vote:  ["]Despite Congress's failure to act, Pennsylvania could well go down as the worst case of election theft in our country's history.  When election officials halted the count on election night, President Trump was ahead by 700,000 votes.  But three days later, they declared that Joe Biden had won.  President Trump was winning by the greatest margin on election night, that I believe Democrats were convinced they couldn't catch him.  So, Democrats stopped the counting, blocked Republicans from even entering the building, and then somehow counted an alleged 1.4 additional million ballots without oversight.  That gave the race to Biden ... three days later on November 7.  Pennsylvania voters wanted an explanation for how Joe Biden made up a 700,000-vote deficit with no oversight, and then won the state by 80,555 votes.  So, where did the votes come from?["]

There's Another Bombshell in Kari Lake's Election Lawsuit.  In a court filing from last week, "Governor" Katie Hobbs (D-Ariz.) requested that Kari Lake's election lawsuit be thrown out, claiming that Lake failed to prove that Arizona voters were disenfranchised in the 2022 elections.  "Despite seven witnesses, hundreds of declarants, and thousands of pages of exhibits, Lake failed to demonstrate any violations of Arizona law and offered no evidence that absent alleged violations the outcome of the election would have been different," the filing reads.  But on Monday, Lake's team indicated that more evidence is on the way, and this evidence could be game-changing.  "Yesterday @katiehobbs filed to get our lawsuit thrown out," the Kari Lake War Room account tweeted.  "Today, records revealed nearly a quarter of a million ballots were rejected on Election Day in Maricopa County in a race that came down to just 17K votes.  She's illegitimate & she knows it.  More evidence to come."  [Tweet]

Do You Trust the Integrity of Our Elections?  We can no longer allow some states to cheat by allowing non-citizens to votes, or by allowing political operatives to cast votes on behalf of unsuspecting residents.  That is why we need a national baseline of a few essential voting requirements, such as these:
  •   A ban on ballot harvesting, with a few limited exceptions for spouses or for people with disabilities
  •   A hard ID requirement — preferably with photos
  •   Mandatory citizenship verification when a person registers for the first time
  •   A uniform national Election Day cutoff for voting

What Would Happen if They Held a Voter Suppression Election and No Voters Got Suppressed?  Last January, Joe Biden set the Democratic base ablaze with the incendiary charge that Republicans were suppressing the votes of minorities.  "Jim Crow 2.0 is about two insidious things:  voter suppression and election subversion," Biden told a crowd at Atlanta University. "It's no longer about who gets to vote; it's about making it harder to vote.  It's about who gets to count the vote and whether your vote counts at all."  "It's not hyperbole; this is a fact."  At the time, it was a supposition, not a fact, to claim that the Republican election reforms would suppress the black vote.  And as it turns out, it certainly was hyperbole.  It was a supposition that was so pervasive that it forced Major League Baseball to cancel its all-star game set for Atlanta later that summer.  And numerous corporations punished the state for its supposed efforts to suppress the vote.  So where does Georgia go for an apology?

Removing Phantoms With Technology and 'Gentle' Persuasion.  If incoming email is any judge, there are large swaths of our citizen friends who want to get involved in fighting voter fraud — "just do something!"  Two years ago, most Americans thought phantom voters were comic book characters.  Nobody had ever seen one.  This week, we reached our 5,000th volunteer request (in 60 days) to help clean voter rolls — and we never asked for a single volunteer.  We are just technology guys.  Americans are fed up; they get it that their elected officials are not going to clean voter rolls.  Perhaps some people did not dig the Big Steal for the Trump election — but after Kari Lake, the Senate in Nevada, and dozens of local races, they are on fire now.

Watchdog Finds That 10.9 million Ballots Were 'Unaccounted' For In California.  As concerns continue to grow over mail-in ballots, a new report from a watchdog organization known as the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) found that almost half of California's 22.1 million mail-in ballots cast in the 2022 midterm elections were unaccounted for.  While PILF concedes that many of the ballots were likely thrown out or not sent back in, it is impossible to know what exactly was done with them after they were mailed to California residents, leading to 10.9 million of the state's mail-in-ballots being unaccounted for.  The organization is concerned that some of the ballots were withheld for their intended recipient or mailed to the wrong address, disenfranchising voters.

In Arizona, bombshell new evidence of Maricopa County election wrongdoing.  Maricopa County is the most populated part of Arizona.  When it comes to local government, it's strongly conservative.  However, abruptly and surprisingly, in both 2020 and 2022, Maricopa County suddenly started voting Democrat. [...] Maricopa County had 4,420,568 residents according to the 2020 census, making it the fourth most populous county in America, with over 60% of Arizona's total population.  Historically, it's been a consistently conservative county.  Before 2020, the county voted for every Republican presidential candidate going back to Eisenhower's first run. [...] Kari Lake filed suit alleging that election wrongdoing in Maricopa made the difference between winning and losing the race.  What happens in Maricopa matters because Lake allegedly lost all of Arizona by a hair over 17,000 votes.  Significant wrongdoing in Maricopa should invalidate the whole election.  So far, the judge hasn't yet tossed the case — and, after today's bombshells, he may not be able to do so, no matter how much he wants to.

Biden's 'Jim Crow 2.0' Lie About Georgia's Election Law Just Got Shredded.  The election security law passed by Republican lawmakers in Georgia and signed into law by the Peach State's GOP Governor Brian Kemp drew some of the most outlandish claims from Democrats who, for some reason, oppose making it harder to cheat and easier to vote in elections.  President Biden called the election security law "Jim Crow 2.0" and urged Major League Baseball to yank the All-Star Game from Atlanta, which they did — all based on a lie.  Woke corporations signed an open letter and used it to virtue signal their opposition to what they alleged would be racist disenfranchisement of voters in Georgia.  Celebrities took to their Instagram and Twitter followers to smear the law, furthering false claims.  Failed Democrat candidate for governor Stacey Abrams declared that the law proved definitively that Georgia Republicans were racist and wanted to return, as Biden had hinted, to some revamped iteration of disgraceful Jim Crow policies.  But then the 2022 primary election happened, and voter turnout records were broken.

Here Are Over 1,400 Proven Cases of Election Fraud, and That's Just the Beginning.  According to the Democrats, election fraud doesn't happen — except for when Republicans win elections... in those cases, it was probably Russia, who somehow hacked in and changed votes.  I mean, how else could a Democrat lose?  Right?  Meanwhile, we're all supposed to collectively turn a blind eye when Democrat wins an extremely close election under suspicious circumstances.  When that happens, we're told that election fraud is a myth, that our elections are perfectly secure, and if you dare ask questions, you'll get censored by social media because you are a threat to democracy!  But election fraud is not a myth.  In fact, 1,412 confirmed cases of election fraud have been documented in the Election Fraud Database maintained by the Heritage Foundation's legal center.

To Save America, Repeal the 19th Amendment.  The only iron law of history is that imbalances will be corrected, sometimes violently.  Based on current voting patterns, if women didn't vote, there would never be another Democrat president.  Now, who wouldn't make that trade?  Come on, ladies, do your duty to God and country, and give it up for America.

Vote machine tabulation error shifts one local race in Monmouth after irregularities discovered.  A possible malfunction of the vote tabulation system in Monmouth County led to the double counting of votes in six voting districts in four municipalities and appears to change the outcome of a school board race in Ocean Township.  Election Systems and Software (ES&S), Monmouth County's voting machine vendor, has acknowledged an error in their vote tabulation system that caused irregularities that were not discovered until an unrelated issue caused the Board of Elections to launch an internal investigation, according to an election official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.  The company called the issue an "isolated incident occurred due to a human procedural error.  An audit of the system yielded this information."

Election Integrity Watchdog Finds 10.9 Million 2022 Midterm Mail-In Ballots 'Unaccounted For' in California.  An election integrity group said 10.9 million out of a total 22.1 million ballots that had been mailed out to registered voters during the 2022 midterm elections went "unaccounted for," according to a Jan. 18 report.  "Mail voting practices have an insurmountable information gap," the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) said on Monday. "The public cannot know how many ballots were disregarded, delivered to wrong mailboxes, or even withheld from the proper recipient by someone at the same address."  The watchdog released the two-page report detailing what it called "the failures" of California's first mass-mail balloting election following the passage of Assembly Bill 37 (AB 37), which requires that ballots automatically be mailed to all active registered voters statewide.  The bill, signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom in September 2021, makes vote-by-mail ballots, a practice implemented in the 2020 general election in conjunction with the COVID-19 pandemic, permanent for all elections.

California: 10.8 Million Mail-In Ballots [are] 'Unaccounted For' in 2022 Elections.  More than 10.8 million mail-in ballots went "unaccounted for" in California's midterm elections last year, data published by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) reveals.  In 2022, California election officials mailed out more than 22.1 million ballots to registered voters, the data published by PILF shows.  Of those, more than 10.8 million went "unaccounted for" as researchers said election officials can only make assumptions as to what happened with the ballots. [...] Meanwhile, more than 226,000 mail-in ballots were rejected in the 2022 primary and general midterm elections in California, including more than 120,000 mail-in ballots that were thrown out in the general election.  The data published by PILF finds that more than 800 mail-in ballots were rejected after California election officials discovered the person who cast them had already voted.

2024: Republicans on Course to Get Blown Out by Phantoms.  Trump or DeSantis?  It doesn't matter.  Phantom voters will decide 2024.  The phantoms are not voting for either.  Those working deep in swing state voter rolls can tell you with 100% certainty that unless Trump or DeSantis wins with a 5%-to-18% margin in swing states, they will lose every one.  Let's do some electioneering math.  To win the presidency, about a dozen swing states matter — we all know who they are.  Some will add Georgia, Virginia, and Arizona, some not.  President Trump won in 2016 because he caught the leftists off guard.  Perhaps even Trump was surprised on Election Night — the surprise was so complete!  In 2020, the Dems took no chances.  They had everything wired — but our boy Trump surprised them again — so they shut down the election apparatus at 11:00 P.M. and took matters into their own hands.  Nine hours later, problem solved:  Joe Biden emerges from a basement, incoherent, to take the oath of office.  That, people, is hardball — professional, take-no-prisoners electioneering.  You may hate that the country is being lost, but you must stand back at the sheer breathtaking gall it reflects.

Fox News MIA on Lake lawsuit.  "Fair, Balanced and Unafraid" is now a distant memory.  Whatever the cause, considering the Fox News Channel to be a name to trust is a complete waste of time.  The fix is in.  Fox News reports on what they are told, not what is important for the country.  This includes the most popular shows in the evening, Jesse Waters, Tucker Carlson, Shawn Hannity, and Laura Ingraham.  All four still appear to be fighting for our country, but only on approved stories.  This has been going on for quite some time, but the absolute proof is that — based on what I saw — Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake's lawsuit against election fraud in Maricopa County wasn't given even one second of airtime last night, even though she has appeared as a guest on most of those shows in the past.  The lawsuit was filed at close of business Friday, and I'm sure that Lake could have appeared on one of the shows last night, but nothing — nada. [...] As far as I can tell, there has not been a peep on all of Fox about perhaps the most important lawsuit of the year, contesting the greatest political crime in history.  In an article yesterday, I explained why the numbers in Arizona are impossible without massive fraud.  Other networks and newspapers have covered the story — usually to declare it as a desperate move from a failed candidate.

Election Fraud Database Tops 1,400 Cases.  The Heritage Foundation's Election Fraud Database now includes 1,412 proven instances of election fraud, and our legal center is monitoring many other ongoing prosecutions.  The database, which provides a sampling of recent election fraud cases, demonstrates the vulnerabilities within the electoral process and the need for reforms to secure free and fair elections for the American people.  The database doesn't list potential fraud discovered by election officials and others that is never investigated or prosecuted, and it obviously cannot list fraud that goes undetected when states with poor security don't have the tools in place to even realize such fraud is occurring.  But states — especially now that many state legislative sessions are beginning — should make stopping fraud and ensuring the integrity of their elections a top priority.

The Manic Methods of Mad Democrats.  Before any presidential or midterm election, strict news suppression ensures that all bad news will follow, not precede, the voting.  The Twitter files, Project Veritas ambush interviews, the Podesta emails, and occasional left-wing braggadocio like Molly Ball's now infamous post-2020 election revelations in Time magazine, confirm the fusion between the media and the Democratic Party.  To the degree there is any independent journalistic inquiry about Biden — such as we are only now seeing with Biden's security violations — it is likely only because the party wants the 80-year-old enfeebled Biden out of office.  The Democratic-media-deep-state nexus quashed all 2020 pre-election revelations about the embarrassing Hunter Biden laptop.  Its contents more or less proved that the Biden family was corrupt.  Twitter and Facebook confessionals show how, in lapdog fashion, social media forbade coverage of the truth about the laptop.  More than 50 former intelligence officers, organized by the confessed liars John Brennan and James Clapper — both of whom have admitted to deceiving Congress while under oath — used their former titles to fortify the pre-election lie that Hunter's laptop was likely Russian disinformation.  A poll conducted after the election revealed that those voters who knew of the story might have changed their vote had they known the truth.  Neither Clapper nor Brennan nor any of their subordinates has ever apologized.

Wife of Woodbury County elected official faces 52 counts of voter fraud.  The wife of Woodbury County Supervisor Jeremy Taylor faces 52 counts of voter fraud for an alleged scheme in which she fraudulently filled out absentee ballot requests and voter registration forms and cast absentee ballots on behalf of others during Taylor's unsuccessful run for Congress in the 2020 primary election and his re-election to the county board in that fall's general election.  Kim Phuong Taylor, 49, was arrested Thursday and pleaded not guilty to 26 counts of providing false information in registering and voting, three counts of fraudulent registration and 23 counts of fraudulent voting.  She was released on a personal recognizance bond and ordered to surrender her passport and may not apply for a new one.

Just What Kind Of A Republican Is Mitch McConnell?  The 2022 Arizona gubernatorial election was eerily like the 2020 presidential election.  As highlighted in Republican candidate Kari Lake's lawsuit, there were massive and obvious voting irregularities.  The first sign of trouble was the elongated time frame that Maricopa County (home to 60 percent of Arizona voters) required to "count votes."  How could it be that the Election "Day" was November 8, but the final vote tabulation was not completed until November 21?  Signature verification issues and boxes of ballots bundled with no seal or chain of custody documentation alone amounted to hundreds of thousands of possible illegal votes that could have easily changed the outcome.  Consider, too, that Arizona's population is 7.3 million.  Texas, with a population of 29.1 million, and Florida, with 22.25 million, completed their tabulations on Election Day eve.

House, Senate Republicans Seek to Overturn D.C. Law Allowing Illegal Aliens to Vote.  House and Senate Republicans are seeking to overturn a new law, approved by Democrats on the Washington, DC, City Council, that extends municipal voting rights to illegal aliens.  In October 2022, the D.C. City Council voted 12-1 to advance a bill that will allow foreign nationals, regardless of if they have visas or are illegally in the United States, to vote in local elections such as school board races and mayoral elections.  About 50,000 foreign nationals and illegal aliens could be eligible to vote in local elections across D.C. if the measure is not thrown out by Congress before taking effect.

Fulton County 2020 Election Case Has Been Reinstated.  A 2020 election case that had been dismissed by a county superior court for "lack of standing" has just been reinstated by the Georgia Appeals Court.  The appeals court reinstated the Garland Favorito, et al. v. Alex Wan, et al. case, which alleges that counterfeit ballots were included in Fulton County's absentee votes in 2020.  The lawsuit against the county Board of Registration and Elections was originally filed in December 2020 by VoterGA, an election integrity nonprofit organization.  Henry County Superior Court Chief Judge Brian Amero had dismissed the case in July, which was upheld upon appeal.  "A judge on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit that alleged fraud in Georgia's most populous county during the 2020 election," the Independent had reported.  "The suit sought a review of some 147,000 absentee ballots in search of illegitimate votes, but no evidence emerged to justify such a broad search, the judge said."

Arizona Court Of Appeals Schedules Conference In Kari Lake's Election Lawsuit, Agrees Case Should Be Expedited!  The Arizona Court of Appeals has ordered an expedited conference to be set for February 1 in Kari Lake's historic lawsuit to overturn the botched election in Arizona.  The Gateway Pundit previously reported that the court scheduled the morning of January 24 for a conference and oral argument in Kari Lake's appeal against Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson's dismissal of her lawsuit to overturn the 2022 Midterm election.  According to a new report, the court date would likely have been in March.  However, the court issued a new order setting a conference date and agreeing to consider Lake's 'Petition for Special Action'.  As The Gateway Pundit reported, the Maricopa County 2022 Election was a disaster.  In Maricopa County, over 50% of tabulators and printers failed the moment that polls opened, causing voters to be turned away from the polls and creating long wait times of four hours or more.  According to cybersecurity expert Clay Parikh's testimony, this was an intentional act aimed at disenfranchising Republican voters who turned out 3:1 for Trump-Endorsed candidates.  This and other election catastrophes in Maricopa County possibly stole the election from Kari Lake, Abe Hamadeh, and other Republican candidates.

Like Paul Revere, a Massachusetts Republican Sends Warning.  [Scroll down] Florida's election proved it — 'If they can't cheat, they can't win.'  Florida made a national laughingstock of itself during the 2000 presidential election.  It was a three-ring circus, complete with 'hanging chads'.  Since 2000, successive conservative governors and representatives in Florida, including Ron DeSantis, have worked to repair all the loopholes that enabled that embarrassing debacle.  Cheating in Florida was prevented through ironclad voter I.D. laws, tight absentee ballot rules, and keeping accurately maintained voter rolls.  Florida enacted prohibitions against mail-in ballots and ballot-harvesting.  These steps are essential to protect every state, too.  In addition, legislators must insist on paper ballots only and set a firm deadline for accepting ballots — no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, no exceptions.  They must commit to finishing the count on election night, and plan to announce the results by 11:00 p.m.

Colorado Deploys Smokescreen To Avoid Explaining How Foreigners Received Voter Registration Notices.  When 31,000 foreign nationals are mailed information from state election officials about how to register to vote, there is a problem.  That happened in Colorado just before the 2022 elections.  After the news broke about these mailings in October 2022, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold didn't have an answer why it happened.  The office blamed the invitations to register to vote to the 31,000 ineligible residents on a comparison between the Colorado statewide voter roll and the master listing of licensed drivers in the state.  The Public Interest Legal Foundation, of which I am President, investigated how this error occurred and how to prevent it elsewhere, particularly in states that are members of the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC).

Court of Appeals Agrees to Expedite Kari Lake's 2022 Election Case.  The Arizona Court of Appeals agreed to expedite consideration of Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake's lawsuit alleging that the 2022 election was flawed.  In a brief order, issued on Jan. 9 and made public the next day, the court ordered a reset of "the matter for conference on February 1, 2023," and agreed with Lake's arguments that her challenge should be handled as a "special action petition."  The court date was reportedly scheduled for March.  Lawyers for Democrat Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs, the state's former secretary of state, has until Jan. 17 to respond and argue why Lake's challenge should be rejected, according to the order.  Lake had petitioned both the state's Appeals Court and Supreme Court after a Maricopa County judge rejected her case after a two-day trial in December.  But earlier this month, the Arizona Supreme Court denied Lake's petition to transfer her election lawsuit to the high court and said it will be heard before the Appeals Court first.

Ranked-Choice Voting Keeps Rigging Elections.  As different states and municipalities across the country adopt ranked-choice voting, it's become obvious this mind-boggling election system deserves a new name: rigged-choice voting.  After nearly two months of tabulation, Alameda County, California, — one such ranked-choice voting (RCV) adoptee — announced it got the count wrong for its Nov. 8 election.  As The Wall Street Journal reported, the California county admitted it made systemic errors while tabulating ballots.  As a result of the snafu, an Oakland School Board race flipped:  The top vote-getter (and certified winner) must now hand his board seat over to the third-place finisher.  While gross negligence on the part of some Alameda County election officials is not only probable but likely, RCV's Byzantine election system must also take the blame.  In it, voters rank candidates in order of preference.  If no candidate receives a majority of votes in the first round, the last-place finisher is eliminated, and his voters are reallocated to the voter's second-choice candidate.  The process continues until one candidate receives a majority of votes.  For the Oakland mayor's race, it took nine baffling rounds of RCV for one candidate to receive the narrow majority.  The local NAACP chapter demanded a manual recount but scrapped it due to the expense.

Has election integrity fallen between the cracks?  Last week, we all watched our Congress in an upheaval, largely because a few courageous conservatives refused to auto-endorse a swamp-creature to be Speaker of the House.  Although Kevin McCarthy ultimately prevailed, the conservatives are heralded for enforcing compromises to obtain their votes.  That's all good as far as it goes.  But did any of the concessions the House conservatives were requesting include mandates that the integrity of our elections be restored?  If so, many of us out here beyond the Beltway have yet to hear anything about it.  Funny how those already elected to office don't seem to care a whole lot about discussing whether the elections that put them there were honest.  Meanwhile, the much-lauded election integrity case brought by the Brunson brothers was not surprisingly turned away at the door by the Supreme Court.  Again, the message the justices are sending us is clear.  If there is any election cheating going on anywhere out there in any of the 50 states, the Supreme Court just doesn't seem to care and don't want to even hear about it.

US Supreme Court Also Decides NOT to Look at Bonner Case on Legality of Mail-in Ballots.  The US Supreme Court not only decided not to look at the Brunson brothers' case, but also decided not to take up the Bonner case challenging the legality of mail-in ballots.  Such a shame.  The US Supreme Court is absolutely frightened to take up strong cases that challenge corrupt elections or corrupt practices.  Yet this is the biggest issue facing our country right now and the biggest threat to our Constitution.

Election Fraud Infrastructure: Your Government At Work!  There is nothing so unnerving as government-initiated election fraud, perpetrated by both political parties, hiding in plain sight.  This is the world we live in — the one Republicans are about to encounter.  The most basic ingredient for industrial-scale voter fraud is the voter roll, fat with phantom names and addresses.  Someone may be able to transport 250,000 paper ballots from New York to Pennsylvania, leave the truck in the parking lot, and find it gone when he returns.  Those ballots are useless paper if not tied to an identity at a real address.  The hard part is creating people and addresses — it is an industrial-scale operation.  Just think how hard it would be for you and your pals to create 250,000 fake names and tie each to a real address.

The Uniparty Sure Hates Democracy!  [Scroll down]  It is much more elegant when ballots can be printed, signatures forged, and elections certified according to the wishes of the ruling elites.  The appearance of democracy in the absence of it is ideal.  The practice of actual democracy would bring the whole government's house of cards crashing down!  Huge majorities of Americans, after all, have for decades despised illegal immigration, wasteful government spending, central bank money printing, endless foreign wars, the purposeful offshoring of America's manufacturing and industrial self-sufficiency, the forced replacement of cheap hydrocarbon energies with windmills and "green" dreams, and multinational corporate lobbying interests superseding Americans' wishes.  If democratic majorities of Americans were actually allowed to get their way, the small faction of Uniparty elites running the country into the ground would have no means to money-launder their poor decisions into personal financial gain!  Chalk this up as yet another gloriously enlightening example of piercing through the Uniparty's lies and illusions.

If You Live In a Western Democracy, This is How You Have Been Disenfranchised.  Look at any set of problems we now face:  the corruption of public health, the economy built on debt and financialization, the stolen voting, the theft of our resources, the growing biomedical security state and you will find this same methodology.  It works for every problem.  It is the Mark of the Beast.  Everywhere there is injustice, theft of the people's energy, this is the system they use to oppress and silence us, to impoverish the future, to ruin the present.  This is how they steal elections and destroy independent businesses.  I illustrate these steps with excerpts from a SCOTUS case before the court now, regarding the theft of the 2020 election in Delaware County, Pennsylvania.  In that case, 327,000 mail in ballots had no chain of custody.  None.  Evidence was illegally destroyed.  Hard drives were lost.  Tens of thousands of misdemeaners were committed by election officials[.]

DSCC paid illegal alien for campaign services, a likely FEC violation.  During the 2022 midterm elections, the Democrats paid half a million dollars to an Arizona company called La Machine Consulting for canvassing work and other campaign services.  There's nothing wrong with that since many such companies do business all over the country and both parties make use of their services.  Or at least there wouldn't be anything wrong with that except for one potentially glaring problem.  As Chuck Ross reports at the Free Beacon this week, La Machine Consulting is owned by Antonio Valdovinos.  And Mr. Valdovinos proudly portrays himself as a "dreamer," meaning that he's not a citizen and is not in the country legally, even though he received a deferment under DACA.  And the FEC frowns on that sort of thing.

Maricopa County announces investigation into Election Day printer issues.  Officials in Arizona's largest count have launched an investigation into significant issues reported with election center printers during the 2022 midterm elections.  Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates and Vice Chairman Clint Hickman announced Friday the investigation via a statement released on Twitter.  "This Board of Supervisors has always been committed to continuous improvement.  When things don't work, we find out why," the statement said.  The two chairs said former Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice Ruth McGregor will lead the inquiry.

Colorado Won't Name 31,000 Foreign Citizens It Sent Voter Registration Info, So Counties Have No Idea If They Voted.  Colorado officials are still refusing to cooperate with local counties after the secretary of state's office sent more than 31,000 foreign nationals postcards on how to register to vote in time for the 2022 midterms.  According to a newly released report by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), the Colorado secretary of state's office has refused to give county election officials the names of foreign nationals who received voter registration instructions in their counties back in October.  According to documents obtained by PILF, Deputy Secretary of State Christopher Beall refused to give the names of 54 foreign nationals who were mailed the voter registration postcards in Moffat County.

A Mulligan for the Supreme Court.  Many would argue that the Supreme Court had a terrible "first shot" in regards to the election of 2020, when they refused to become involved in the many issues raised by the Presidential election.  Perhaps the most notable of these was Texas vs.  Pennsylvania, in which the State of Texas asked that Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin not be allowed to certify their 2020 election results because changes in their election procedures made by courts, governors, and election officials violated the Constitution, which rests the power to define the "times, places, and manner" of federal elections solely in the hands of state legislatures, an argument commonly referred to as the "Independent State Legislature" (ISL) theory.  The Court refused to consider the case, not on the merits of its argument, but on a technicality, claiming that Texas had not demonstrated a "judicially cognizable interest" in the manner in which another state conducts its elections.  As a result, we have seen nearly two years of the rapid destruction of our nation, including fiscal irresponsibility that is led to staggering inflation, a steady decline in the stock market, enactment of policies that have reduced us from energy independence to a nation that must look to countries such as Venezuela and Iran to meet our basic needs and, perhaps most frightening, the politicization of the Department of Justice (including the FBI) into organizations resembling a third-world police state.  Fortunately, there are cases currently before the Supreme Court that offer them the opportunity for a "do-over."

As Republicans launch new legal strikes, Arizona's largest county says 4,849 ballots [have] not [been] counted.  Arizona Republican candidates Abe Hamadeh and Kari Lake have launched new legal maneuvers to contest the November election as the state's largest county gave its most detailed explanation to date on why it did not count more than 4,800 provisional ballots cast two months ago.  Hamadeh, the GOP's attorney general nominee. on Tuesday filed a motion for a new trial after a Mohave County Superior Court judge dismissed his and the Republican National Committee's election challenge just before Christmas.  [Tweet]  While Hamedeh lost Dec. 23, he forced into public new evidence of voting problems in Pinal County that even Arizona's new Democrat secretary of state concedes was troubling.  That new evidence is one focus of his request for a new trial.

The Coup We Never Knew.  Did someone or something seize control of the United States? [...] Since when did the people decide that 70 percent of voters would not cast their ballots on Election Day?  Was this revolutionary change the subject of a national debate, a heated congressional session, or the votes of dozens of state legislatures?  What happened to Election Night returns?  Did the fact that Americans created more electronic ballots and computerized tallies make it take so much longer to tabulate the votes?

Wisconsin Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos Accused of Suppressing Election Fraud Evidence from 2020 Presidential Election.  Wisconsin election integrity expert Peter Bernegger went public last week publishing an exhaustive list of apparent election fraud evidence in a string of over 100 Twitter postings and appearing on the conservative Talk Show, The Schroeder Show, WTAQ, in Green Bay.  Bernegger implicated Wisconsin Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) in a cover-up of evidence that clearly affected the outcome of the 2020 Presidential Election in Wisconsin.  Twitter has not pulled these postings down nor have they censored Peter Bernegger.  The 2020 Wisconsin Presidential Election was allegedly decided by just 20,682 votes with President Trump leading by some 110,000 votes at midnight with all precincts having reporting their results.  Then at 3:26 A.M., a massive vote dump from a supposed missing flash-drive on Wednesday, November 4th, of some 170,000 votes by the City of Milwaukee Elections Director Claire Woodall-Vogg, showed President Trump's lead having completely evaporated in an 18-minute time-period.

They are the insurrectionists.  The Brunson v Adams case focuses on a breach of national security that could, if ruled on properly, unwind the corruption that led to the 2020 election debacle.  The case would see most of the congress dismissed for that national security breach by failing to investigate charges brought by members of the House that election laws that were not obeyed during the 2020 election led to a breach of national security, i.e, removing a duly elected president in favor of an illegitimate one.  Which is what obviously happened.  Bill Barr, head of the Justice Department, went on national news programs and declared there was no election fraud in the 2020 election without having a single investigation into the multitude of charges and accusations referred to the Department of Justice from around the country.  He simply lied and said what it would take to keep the coup from being exposed, nothing else.  This is a serious violation of law, a serious violation of ethics, protocol and morality for which he has paid no price.  Had Barr instead honestly investigated the charges brought to him, the outcome of the election would have been in doubt until that investigation was complete.  It would have forestalled the inauguration on grounds that until an election is verified as free, fair and legal, there should be no change in the current administration.

Dem-Led Swing States Are Seizing The Opportunity To Rewrite Voting Laws.  Democratic-led swing states are jumping at the chance to rewrite voting laws ahead of the 2024 presidential election, Politico reported.  Currently, more than 100 election-related bills have been pre-filed for the 2023 legislative session, according to the nonpartisan group Voting Rights Lab, which tracks election laws across the states.  Democrat-led states are more likely to favor laws which loosen voting restrictions, such as by expanding early voting or adopting automatic voter registration, according to Politico.  In Minnesota, where voters swung for President Joe Biden by 52.4% in 2020, state leaders may consider proposals to restore voting rights to convicted felons and adopt automatic voter registration, which immediately registers citizens to vote who interact with any government agency unless they request to be opted out.

10 Scandals To Keep Your Eye On In 2023.  [#5] Eugene Yu Versus True the Vote:  Last year ended with the L.A. County district attorney's office dismissing criminal charges against Yu, the founder of the Michigan-based election-management software company Konnech.  The L.A. County D.A. had previously announced Yu's arrest, stating in a press conference on Oct. 4, 2022, that "under its $2.9 million, five-year contract with the county, Konnech was supposed to securely maintain the data and that only United States citizens and permanent residents have access to it."  Yet according to the press release, "District Attorney investigators found that in contradiction to the contract, information was stored on servers in the People's Republic of China."  Shortly after Yu's arrest, the self-proclaimed "nation's leading voters' rights and election integrity organization," True the Vote, announced that it had "played a small role" in the investigation of Konnech and applauded the L.A. County D.A.'s office for its work on the case.  True the Vote's involvement in the case apparently prompted the far-left D.A. to rethink the charges and eventually led to the dismissal of the criminal case, because of its concerns "about both the pace of the investigation and the potential bias in the presentation and investigation of the evidence."

Over 333,472 Misdemeanors Committed in Kari Lake's Election, But Trial Court Judge Shrugged Them Off.  Distrust in the justice system over its refusal to stop voter disenfranchisement is spiraling after Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson dismissedKari Lake's lawsuit challenging the results of Arizona's botched midterm election, where Democrat Katie Hobbs was declared the winner.  Hobbs was losing in almost every MSM poll and didn't bother to debate Lake, prompting one of the most prominent progressive journalists in the state to denounce her hiding in her basement as "political malpractice."  Hobbs was such an unremarkable candidate that she has only 177k Twitter followers to Lake's 834k followers, over 400% fewer.  The Republican Party has a 4% voter registration over Democrats in both Maricopa County and statewide.  Despite this, 14% of voters supposedly flipped to oppose Arizona's top Trump candidates.  Just like how no one believed Donald Trump lost the state in 2020 when he led Joe Biden three or four points going into the election, no one believes Hobbs won.  This is why instead of being happy and gloating at their win, the left is reacting with a bizarre level of intense anger towards the right.

Fishing as a Guide to Election Integrity.  Some people think my hometown of Cleveland is a dull place, but we have plenty of excitement here.  For example, there were two men who nearly won $30,000 in a 2022 walleye fishing tournament on Lake Erie.  And they won lots of money before, including about $150,000 worth of prizes in 2021.  What was their secret?  Their fish weighed more than anyone else's fish.  It's pretty simple, right?  In the last competition, however, a skeptical judge did something that had never been done before:  He sliced open one of the fish, and inside he found an amazing amount of weight that looked like lead balls.  Unless those were humongous kidney stones, the men were cheating.  They are now charged with multiple criminal offenses, including attempted grand theft and possession of criminal tools.  In a fishing competition, it is not good enough to merely count the pounds:  It is necessary to make sure you are counting pounds of real fish, not lead balls.  That same principal should apply to our elections.  In most cases, however, election administrators simply count the ballots without making sure that they represent real voters.  We just saw a great example of this with the Kari Lake-Kattie Hobbs governor's race in Arizona.

GOP's Hamadeh calls to inspect all ballots after recount narrows opponent's lead.  Arizona Republican attorney general candidate Abe Hamadeh called on Thursday for the inspection of all ballots in the very close statewide race after a recount saw his opponent's lead narrow by nearly half.  Democratic candidate Kris Mayes emerged ahead of Hamadeh by 511 votes in the original tally, which subsequently dropped to a mere 280 following the recount.  Hamadeh contends that such a discrepancy warrants further review of the contest.  "This is a battle fighting for the transparency of Arizona elections and we continue to uncover significant issues within our flawed systems including over 4000 provisional ballots that remain uncounted.  Transparent elections are fundamental to a democracy," he said in a statement.

Poll shows huge majority of voters want election changes scrapped.  Mass mail-in ballots, sent out whether a voter asks for such a ballot or not, and done off dirty voter rolls full of dead people, people who have moved, illegal aliens, and voters registered at Mongolian restaurants, as Jay Valentine noted in his piece here, with corrupt secretaries of state temporarily changing an address letter or two to ensure non-delivery of the mail, are wide-open opportunities for ballot-harvesters.  The latter gather ballots and fill them in based on who's paying them for their "deliveries" and the stuffed ballot boxes, often arriving well later than election day, becomes the election result.  The failure to enact voter-ID ensures that anyone can claim any identity and cast a ballot.  Illegals, felons, people with multiple names, people with fake names, people who have registered their dogs to vote, people voting in the name of other people, you name it.  Once the cast ballot is into the tub, it's gone, off to be counted even if it was cast illegitimately, and if the real owner of that name comes in asking to vote, too bad for him.

Maricopa County Election Director Scott Jarrett Testifies He Had No Idea How 19 Inch Ballot Image Could Be Printed On 20 Inch Paper.  Maricopa County Election Director Scott Jarrett likely perjured himself in a court of law by lying about the ballot printer settings that caused tabulation failures and disenfranchised thousands of election day voters.  Jarrett testified under oath during Kari Lake's historic election contest trial against Democrat Katie Hobbs and the Maricopa County election officials.  On Election Day in Maricopa County, over 50% of tabulators and printers failed the moment that polls opened, causing voters to be turned away from the polls and creating long wait times of four hours or more.  According to cybersecurity expert Clay Parikh's testimony, this was an intentional act aimed at disenfranchising Republican voters who turned out 3:1 for Trump-Endorsed candidates.

The End of Free Elections?  Leftists and RINOs have spent the last 40 years transforming election machinery to end your right to vote — and they are about to finish the job.  This week, the governor of Minnesota took the lead by planning to register, automatically, teenagers not old enough to vote.  On election day, there will be tens of thousands of names, with little history, who can be voted by election commissions when needed.  Democrats are proposing laws making it a felony to question an election.  Of course they are!&nb sp; Breitbart, Fox News, and about every other mainstream controlled opposition are cowed into submission.  Election commissions regularly add to election rolls, automatically, every person using any state service — even if that person has not requested to be an elector.  Your illegal migrant, getting welfare or a driver's license can be automatically added to the state rolls.

Harvesting Low-Effort Votes Is Working Great For Democrats, So They're Going For More.  The dust of the 2022 midterm contests has barely settled and Democrats — invigorated by the Red Wave that evaporated under extended lax voting policies — are out to make sweeping changes to our nation's election laws once again.  Think back to 2020, when Democratic governors and unsuspecting Republican lawmakers made unprecedented changes to state election policies in the name of Covid that included mandating universal mail-in balloting and a month of early voting.  Some states have kept these changes permanently.  But Democrats are not satisfied, and why should they be?  With their gubernatorial power retained (they kept all but one of the governor's offices) and newfound control of state legislatures in both Michigan and Minnesota, Democrats are keen to ram through a whole gamut of unprecedented and unconstitutional changes.  It's working, so they're going to keep doing it.

Kari Lake Finally Scores a Win Against Katie Hobbs.  With the dismissal of Kari Lake's lawsuit over Arizona's 2022 election, a contentious saga was brought to an end.  Despite issues with voting machines and questions about the chain of custody of ballots, the judge in the case said the Lake campaign did not meet the legal threshold needed to provide any remedy.  Ultimately, as I wrote initially when the lawsuit was filed, it was always likely to be too difficult to prove intent (required under the law) and that voters were actually disenfranchised.  Supposition, as much as it makes for good internet chatter, wasn't going to do it here, and without direct evidence that ballots were improperly discarded or tampered with (i.e. votes changed somehow), the end result was inevitable.  Regardless, Hobbs, being the insufferable Karen that she is, couldn't just walk away victorious.  She instead requested the judge sanction Lake as punishment for even challenging the election.  On that front, Lake has finally scored a win, albeit one that probably won't be much consolation.

Lake v. Hobbs, the Ruling.  The court permitted two counts from the original ten in the Complaint to proceed to Trial: 1) the claim that ballot-on-demand ("BOD") printer malfunctions experienced on Election Day were caused intentionally and that these malfunctions resulted in a changed outcome (Complaint Count II); and 2) the claim that Maricopa County violated its own election procedures manual ("EPM") as to chain of custody procedures in such a way as to result in a changed election outcome (Complaint Count IV).  After laying out the "clear and convincing" burden of proof Lake needed to carry, the court summarized and evaluated the witnesses and evidence Lake presented.  The court looked to Arizona case law going back to 1898, before we became a state in 1912, for the proposition "it is ... unwise to lay down any rule by which the certainty and accuracy of an election may be jeopardized by the reliance upon any proof affecting such results that is not of the most clear and conclusive character." [...] Much of Lake's case was hearsay.  Ms. Honey relied on what another person said in an affidavit about ballots being added to the stream of ballots by Runbeck employees without a chain of custody for them and in violation of law.  She did not see this happen with her own eyes.  Defense counsel was unable to cross examine the person who allegedly saw the deed take place.  Freshman law students will tell you those statements were not made in person inside the courtroom, were not subject to cross examination at trial, and are hearsay on their face.

Katie Hobbs, Maricopa County File Lawsuit Demanding Sanctions Against Kari Lake.  A new lawsuit has been filed in the ongoing feud over the 2022 Arizona gubernatorial election, as Secretary of State (and incoming Governor) Katie Hobbs joins the Maricopa County board of elections in taking gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake to court over her claims and previous lawsuits.  According to the suit, Maricopa County contends that "Before a single vote was counted in the 2022 general election, Kari Lake publicly stated that she would accept the results of the gubernatorial election only if she were the winning candidate" but that "she has not simply failed to publicly acknowledge the election results."

Kari Lake failed to meet a standard that is impossible to meet.  Kari Lake has just lost her trial to overturn the election in Arizona.  She presented uncontroverted testimony that the dimensions of the ballot on Election Day were changed from the dimensions that were tested before the election.  This caused the ballot readers great difficulty, since they are programmed to look for marks in specific locations, and the size change moved those marks.  This then led to great confusion, delays, and departure of voters who could not continue to wait their turn.  Those non-voting voters were mostly in dark red areas, so the "errors" disenfranchised Republicans.  Lake presented uncontroverted testimony that the printers were reset to print on the different-sized paper, showing that election officials knew that there was a problem.  She presented even more uncontroverted testimony that election officials did not tally the total number of ballots before transmitting them to the central office, contrary to bright letter regulations and law.  And finally, she presented uncontroverted testimony that over a quarter million ballots were counted but had no chain of custody, again contrary to law.  That "oversight" could allow many thousands of ballots — not votes — to be snuck in to be counted.

The Dismissal of Kari Lake's Election Lawsuit Shows Voter Disenfranchisement No Longer Matters.  The trial court judge in Kari Lake's election lawsuit predictably threw out her case on Saturday, putting on a sham trial that on the surface looked fair to the general public that doesn't know any better, but to legal minds was a travesty of justice.  Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson only gave her two days for a trial and issued his ruling immediately afterwards, even though he could have taken several days, and it was one of the biggest, most important cases in the country.  Legal experts believe his decision was ghostwritten, they suspect top left-wing attorneys like Marc Elias emailed him what to say.  The standard should have been whether voters were disenfranchised, not all the additional hoops Thompson added.  If inner city blacks had been disenfranchised, Thompson would not have added all those extra requirements, he would have made the law fit.

Judge Peter Thompson Rules Elections with Broken Machines in 60% of Precincts and No Chain of Custody for Ballots Are Free, Fair and Certifiable.  A gutless Arizona judge on Saturday dismissed Kari Lake's election lawsuit against Democrat Katie Hobbs in the stolen 2022 midterm election.  Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson found Kari Lake's lawyers had not proven Maricopa officials committed any kind of misconduct.  Kari Lake will appeal the ruling.

Don't Buy What Democrats Are Selling as Reality.  Under their new pseudo-reality, the Democrats would have us believe that all U.S. elections are free and fair when many are plainly not.  Democrats act as though once an election is complete, it is automatically fair and finished.  They then label anyone contesting election results as a perpetrator of fake news.  The facts are that in the 2020 and 2022 elections, the Democrats ignored or discounted hundreds of sworn and [plausible] affidavits by disenfranchised voters, poll-watchers, and ballot support personnel.  They ignore credible expert testimonies from statistical analysts and auditors who say the chances of Democrats to have won some elections in the way they did are astronomically tiny (unless fraud is factored into the equation).  Regarding election fraud accusations against Democrats, they choose not to prove their innocence, but instead just declare themselves innocent absent proof.  Meanwhile, they fight commonsense election reforms like voter ID and signature verification (and a whole list of others) with every ounce of opposition they can muster.  These denial actions project guilt, not innocence.  Democrats label non-Democrats who doubt election results as election deniers.  The Democrats themselves are obviously election fraud deniers in the face of massive evidence of election malfeasance.

The Arizona Printer Problem.  [Scroll down] Taking the list of ballot IDs not counted at the polling location, and running that list against the ballots accepted and counted at the main tabulation center, this would then validate the number of ballots that had an issue at the polling place being counted.  The final audit check I would perform is to take some samples from this data set, and run them through the machine to confirm the proper tabulation of the ballots.  I.e. hand count 200-300 ballots that you run through the machines and confirm the results.  Optical readers are set pretty precisely, and reading a ballot not printed perfectly could directly impact the ability to read that ballot.  I think it possible with the right technical expertise to properly scope the problem and answer the question — were enough voters impacted by the problem to change the election?  And were all the ballots cast properly counted?  I write this in part because Maricopa County and the Secretary of State seem determined to swear in Katie Hobbs.  Maybe she won the election outright.  But after admitting there was a problem, the courts now owe the good people of Arizona a thorough vetting of the problems, the troubleshooting, and the final counts.

Judge dismisses remainder of Kari Lake's election lawsuit following two-day trial.  An Arizona judge on Saturday ruled against Kari Lake in her challenge of Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs's (D) victory, dismissing the highest-profile case challenging the midterm election results.  Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson following a two-day trial found that Lake had not proven that election officials committed intentional misconduct sufficient to change the race's outcome.  Lake, who lost to Hobbs by about 17,000 votes, had alleged election officials in Maricopa County intentionally sabotaged her victory by causing Election Day printer malfunctions and violating chain of custody procedures.  Lake asked the judge to declare her the rightful winner or order a new election in Maricopa County.  Hobbs will be inaugurated on Jan. 2.

Judge Rules Against Kari Lake in Election Trial, Confirms Hobbs as Governor-Elect.  Maricopa Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson issued a ruling Saturday in the case of Lake v.  Hobbs, ruling against Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake on the two remaining counts in her lawsuit challenging the results of the election.  As RedState has reported, during the two-day trial it was revealed that a change in printer setting that occurred on Election Day resulted in massive tabulation errors, as the ballots printed with those faulty settings were unable to be read by the machines.  In addition, Lake's team presented the court with evidence of chain-of-custody issues and affidavits from voters who were unable to vote due to the chaos that ensued.

Maricopa County Attorney Argues That Voters Who Wait Until Election Day to Vote Then Encounter Problems Reap What They Sow.  During day 2 of the Kari Lake election trial in Phoenix, Arizona, Maricopa County attorney Tom Liddy argued that it was "political malpractice" for a campaign to tell voters to vote in person on election day instead of voting early, and that "you reap what you sow," meaning that Lake's campaign lost because of strategy, not because of a printer malfunction error that rendered the ballots incapable of being machine read, long lines that led to voters being unable to vote, or other malignantly incompetent actions on behalf of Maricopa County officials.  Now, playing devil's advocate, it may well be that even with all of the malignant incompetence on behalf of the county that Hobbs still won.  However, for a county attorney to excuse all of that away with references to those who want answers as "election deniers" who shouldn't have any expectation of working voting machines on Election Day is reprehensible.

Ballot printer questions in Arizona.  I am pretty technical.  I was surprised that shrink to fit became a talking point at the hearing on Thursday in Maricopa County.  I primarily know of one program that offers a shrink to fit option: Excel.  Shrink to fit is, in my understanding, an application-level setting.  Some copiers have a shrink to fit option, but it takes a literal picture and resizes it.  That process does take some time and computing resources, and that copier is usually on the expensive side of the equation.  What I missed Thursday is where they allege that the shrink to fit option was set.  If they are alleging that it was set in the voting application software, the software should have audit trails for changes, and we should be able to see if that was indeed the case.  If they are alleging that the change was made in the printer, then did anyone check the printer manual to see if that was indeed an option?

Expert in Kari Lake election suit: 'No doubt' she would have won without Maricopa Election Day chaos.  Election modeling expert Richard Baris said Thursday in the Kari Lake election lawsuit that his projections showed as many as 40,000 voters were disenfranchised over Election Day chaos in Arizona's Maricopa County, causing him to "have no doubt" that she would've won the gubernatorial election had there been no problems at polling centers.  Baris is the final witness for Lake in the scheduled two-day trial for her election lawsuit.  Baris testified that 25,000 to 40,000 voters were disenfranchised in the county as a result of roughly one in five vote centers suffering problems with ballot tabulator machines in the first hours of Election Day[.]

Texas 2020 election audit find 'serious issues' in Harris County, 'phantom voters' in Dallas County.  The Texas Secretary of State office has released the final part of its 2020 general election audit for Collin, Dallas, Harris and Tarrant counties, with the most serious issues reportedly occurring in Harris, the state's most populous county.  The report released Monday states Texas voters overall can have a "very high level of confidence in the accuracy of the outcome of Texas elections" when state election code and local procedures are followed.  However, the audit found Dallas County had two large problems including "phantom voters," according to the Epoch Times.  Secretary of State John Scott ordered the full forensic audit last year amid concerns about voter fraud.  It was designed to represent the two largest Democrat-controlled and GOP-controlled counties, Dallas and Harris and Collin and Tarrant, respectively, according to the report.  In Harris County, the problems were severe enough that the Secretary of State's office notified the county of the audit's preliminary findings ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, the 359-page report also shows.

Maricopa County Elections Director Confirms 'Bombshell' Error in Arizona Election That Was Caused ON Election Day.  There was a 'bombshell' revelation divulged in court on Thursday in a lawsuit brought by Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake against Secretary of State and Governor-Elect Katie Hobbs.  Maricopa County Elections Director Scott Jarrett confirmed in court that the ballot printer and tabulation errors that sowed widespread chaos in the Arizona election was caused on Election Day.  [Video clip] [...] Also in Thursday testimony, election modeling expert Richard Baris said that his projections showed as many as 40,000 voters were disenfranchised over Election Day chaos in Arizona's Maricopa County.  Baris said he would "have no doubt" that she would've won the election had there been no issues at polling centers.

Texas 2020 Election Audit Finds 'Very Serious Issues' in Harris County.  Secretary of State John Scott's office has released the final phase of its 2020 general election audit of Collin, Dallas, Harris, and Tarrant Counties.  The audit released on Monday showed the most serious issues occurred in Harris County, followed by Dallas with two large problems, including "phantom voters."  Tarrant County administered a "quality, transparent election" with minor findings, and Collin County "proved to be the model of how to run elections in Texas."  Overall, Texas voters can have a "very high level of confidence in the accuracy of the outcome of Texas elections" when state election code and local procedures are followed, according to a state election audit report.  Scott ordered the full forensic audit last year amid concerns about voter fraud.  To ensure the transparency of the assessment, the 359-page audit represents the two largest Democrat-controlled counties, Dallas and Harris, as well as the two largest Republican-controlled counties, Collin and Tarrant, according to the report.

Kari Lake Expert Witness: Missized Ballots That Caused Election Day Chaos Could Not Have Been An Accident.  On the first day of trial in Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake's election challenge Wednesday, her lawyers focused on the Maricopa County election equipment failures that caused chaos on Election Day and disenfranchised voters.  Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson previously dismissed eight out of the ten claims Lake made in her lawsuit.  In his order allowing Lake's case to go forward, Thompson said that she would have to prove that misconduct occurred, and that it resulted in "identifiable lost votes" affecting the outcome of the election.  Lake's lawyers attempted to make that case with their bombshell revelation that a review of random ballots found that 48 out of 113 (42.5 percent) were "19-inch ballots produced on 20-inch paper," causing them to be rejected.  Clay Parikh, a witness who examined the defective ballots on behalf of the Lake campaign, said someone must have changed the printer configurations.  "These are not a bump against the printer and the settings change," he explained.  "There are security configurations.  I've reviewed the evidence, and the printers are configured via script, which by any large organization that has to do multiple systems is the standard."

House GOP to Investigate Biden's Secretive Order on Voting.  The House's new Republican majority is poised to investigate the Biden administration's secretive, all-of-government effort to get out the vote.  President Joe Biden's executive order of March 2021 calls for every federal agency, in partnership with private organizations, to "consider ways to expand citizens' opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process."  With some exceptions, most federal agencies haven't provided records on implementation of Biden's executive order after requests for public records were made by Congress, news organizations, and government watchdog groups.  In October, the Justice Department invoked "presidential privilege" to shield related documents.  "Our federal agencies should never be utilized for partisan, political purposes," Rep. Bryan Steil, R-Wis., a member of the House Administration Committee, told The Daily Signal in a statement.

The Election Integrity Battle Must Be Won before It Is Fought.  Republicans should have learned that once the votes are cast, it is nearly impossible to litigate fairness.  They did not.  It's fair to say that in spite of all the talk after the 2020 election about fixing election integrity, very little was done that actually improved things.  I must have heard Jenna Ellis bloviating a hundred times about how her Election Integrity Alliance was going to make sure everyone working on integrity was moving forward, getting it done.  Fail.  It's even worse, as the left is now refining its tactics and focusing on taking over the election process for good.  Leftists even enlisted the federal government in registering voters who are unlikely to cast a ballot so they can cast one for them.  Democrats have a long history of fiddling with elections.  Fast-forward to 2022, and we find ourselves with a disappointing outcome, particularly in same five states as in 2020:  Pennsylvania, Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, and Wisconsin.

Kari Lake's Lawsuit Is Looking Anything but 'Frivolous' Now.  While much of the country is in full holiday "wait until next year" mode, Kari Lake is spending her run-up to Christmas weekend using the legal system to get some answers about what went wrong in Maricopa County on election day.  Last week, I wrote of my admiration for Lake's unwillingness to roll over and play dead for the Democrats and their flying monkeys in the mainstream media.  The lawsuit brought by Lake's legal team was originally dismissed as "frivolous" by an Obama hack judge.  A new judge took it more seriously and some weirdness is being unearthed now.

Judge Allows Case by AZ Republican AG Candidate who "Lost" By 511 Votes to Go to Trial.  Adding to the fight against Arizona's Maricopa County election results, an Arizona judge has ruled that a lawsuit filed by Republican Attorney General Candidate Abraham Hamadeh's lawsuit can go to trial.  Hamadeh, who lost his election to Democrat Kris Mayes by just 511 votes out of 2.5 million, filed a lawsuit in Maricopa County alleging "errors and inaccuracies" at voting locations.  On Election Day, Maricopa saw significant issues at its polling locations including malfunctioning voting machines and improperly printed ballots.

In Elections, It's Not The Votes That Count, It's The Ballots That Count.  Politics may be a blood sport, but frankly, when the stupid party (Republicans) insists on "issues," the evil party (Democrats) quietly laughs.  When you're at war, you must overwhelm the enemy, and that's what Dems do.  With ballots, not votes.  Ballots are the lifeblood of politics, while graft is the mother's milk.  Get enough ballots, and you win.  It's just that simple.  Until the Republican Party understands this, it will always lose, and America can't survive much more losing.  Mail in ballots.  In-person early vote ballots.  Election Day in-person ballots.  Ballots that arrive days after the election is "over."  Those are what get counted, and that's not what should be counted.  The audit of the Maricopa County election in 2020 recounted all those ballots, and came up with... Bupkis.  The machines did a good job of counting ballots.  They couldn't identify bad ballots because that's not what they're built to do.

The Problem With Voting Machine Certification In Arizona.  During the 2020 election, COVID meant many things were ignored or exploited, e.g., voting machines, mass mailing early voting ballots, late suspicious ballot drops, and delays in counting that altered the final count. [...] The DOJ, the FBI, the Dept. of Homeland Security, and others have gone rogue and full Stasi in support of the radical left.  This criminal enterprise aimed to overthrow a duly elected President and undermined his election in 2020.  We must have confidence in our elections and accountability for those involved for our constitutional republic to survive.  We are facing a situation that WWII American soldiers returning to Athens, Tennessee, faced in 1946, only to discover that corrupt local politicians had rigged elections.

Commentary: We watched a New York ballot 'audit.' What we saw was a sham.  New York state election law guarantees that volunteer observers can watch 3 percent of the ballots, selected at random, as they are manually counted and the numbers compared with the official public machine count.  If we can see the ballots and count the votes ourselves, and if the numbers we got agree with the machine count, and if those ballots were truly a random sample, then we can safely and confidently assume that the rest of the ballots were also correctly tallied.  It is called an "audit" and it is the best way to assure the public that the counting is being done honestly.  At least, that is the intent.  The problem is, the audit itself has been corrupted.  It is not working as intended.  The two of us attended the 3 percent audit for Rensselaer County on Nov. 18.  We were treated to a show, not a true audit.  The election commissioner selected the three ballot scanners to be audited using a bingo ball machine.  That part was fine.  We were assured that the machines to be audited were selected at random.  The rest was more or less a case of take-my-word-for-it.

Katie Hobbs Files Emergency Motion To Quash Her Subpoena For Appearance At Kari Lake's Trial — Lawyers Withdraw Hobbs' Subpoena.  Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs has filed an emergency appeal in Kari Lake's historic lawsuit asking the court to reconsider a previously filed Motion to Quash Subpoena for Appearance at Hearing.  Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer and Katie Hobbs filed Motions to Quash their subpoenas earlier this week, alleging that they will be subjected to undue burden or expense.  Hobbs also argued that she "was not served with a subpoena to testify in her personal capacity.  She was subpoenaed to testify at trial in her official capacity as Arizona Secretary of State.  Indeed, she was not personally served with a subpoena, and no one contacted her lawyers in her capacity as Governor-Elect to accept service."  Judge Peter Thompson denied these motions last night.

Not Your Grandfather's Election Day.  Republicans are still recovering from the midterms hangover after suffering a stiff dose of how probabilistic mathematics, statistics, blood-red election maps, armchair predictions, and century-long historical trends are collectively no match for the underhanded ground game of one's opponent.  Giddy Democrats have again put one over on the American people, somehow dodging retribution for a miserable economy and two years of demonizing half the electorate.  Even with majorities in both houses, the Dems faced stiff political and public resistance in their failure to pass H.R. 1, For the Peoples Act, a misnamed Democrat effort to federalize state elections.  Undeterred, state Democrat parties have teamed up with Democrat national campaigns to achieve a permanent, quasi-legal destruction of the election process and institutionalized fraud through the pursuit of early mail-in voting and extended ballot deadlines in states that prohibit or curtail these practices.  This campaign is virtue-signaled through baseless and easily refuted claims of voter suppression, racism, and vintage pandemic concerns.

Kari Lake scores major win as Arizona judge orders trial on election challenge.  Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake's election challenge will head to trial after a judge declined to dismiss her case and allowed the suit to proceed.  Lake announced the development via Twitter, saying "Katie Hobbs attempt to have our case thrown out FAILED.  She will have to take the stand & testify.  Buckle up, America.  This is far from over."  The Arizona Republican lost her gubernatorial bid to Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, but has since alleged that rampant voting irregularities in Maricopa County prevented many would-be Lake voters from casting their ballots.  Last week a Maricopa County Superior Court judge approved Lake's request to inspect random ballots from the county, both in-person and mail-in, in order to prepare for a potential trial.

Kari Lake's election fraud case WILL go to trial.  Kari Lake on Monday said she was confident of victory when a court finally hears evidence that the election was stacked against her as a judge in Arizona said her voter fraud case will go to trial this week.  Lake lost the race to be Arizona's next governor last month by about 17,000 votes to Democratic candidate Katie Hobbs.  But she has argued ever since that problems with printers and election day protocol cost her the election.

Maricopa County Judge Orders Two-Day Trial in Kari Lake Election Lawsuit.  Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake's lawsuit against Maricopa County will go to trial, a judge ruled late Monday [12/19/2022].  Lake filed the lawsuit December 9, alleging that "hundreds of thousands of illegal ballots infected" the Nov. 8 election and led to Hobbs being declared the winner, and "contains more than 270 exhibits of evidence."  Lake's suit also relies on expert witness testimony.  [Tweet]  Last week Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson agreed to allow Lake's legal team to "inspect a small number of printed and early ballots from the election, including 50 that were marked 'spoiled' on Election Day."  That inspection has not occurred yet; it is scheduled to begin Tuesday, December 20.

Ballot Harvesting: How Democracies Perish.  Judging from so many disputed elections and the resulting court cases, there is ample evidence to doubt the outcomes of the 2020 and 2022 elections. [...] The Prog victory in 2020, such as it was, rested on the usual ineptitude of many Secretaries of State, the usual failures of the U.S. Post Office, improvements in "flaps and seals" technology, the pandemic-induced flood of mail-in ballots, thousands of unmonitored ballot boxes, the advent of computer software and sophisticated printers capable of producing virtually undetectable counterfeit ballots, the hacking of some voting systems, and most importantly the money to train and hire an army of foot soldiers to pillage unprotected ballot boxes, to go door-to-door, to go to senior centers and nursing homes with offers to "help" homeowners and senior citizens understand complex ballot issues and — here's the key — to allow the harvesters to gain physical possession of millions of ballots.  Some Secretaries of State fail to purge their registered voter database of the dead, of convicted felons, and of those who moved to other States.  In all mail-in ballot States such as Colorado; the all-too-often incompetent U.S. Post Office is given millions of ballots to deliver to a list of addresses that is approximately over twenty percent in error.  Incompetence, however, is not illegal.

Kari Lake says she will take her fight all the way to the Supreme Court.  Kari Lake promised Sunday [12/18/2022] to take her fight all the way to the Supreme Court if her case that is thrown out in a hearing on Monday.  Lake was the Republican nominee for governor in Arizona and has launched legal action to have her defeat overturned or have the election rerun because of problems at polling stations.  'I'm not going to stand down,' she told supporters at a gathering of conservatives in Phoenix.  'These people are corrupt.'

10 Steps to Save America.  Elections are a mess.  The greatest political revolution in our election history has been the change — accelerated under the cover of COVID and the George Floyd riots — in many key states from a 20-30 percent "absentee ballot" vote to 70-80 percent early/mail-in balloting.  In a mere four years we have all but destroyed Election Day voting and Election Night final tabulations as we had known them for decades.  All discussions of voter IDs, fraud, and charges and countercharges of election denialism are irrelevant if there is no real mechanism to validate the authenticity of mail-in ballots that have incomplete or false addresses, names, and signatures, or do not match registration rolls.  Third-party ballot harvesting and ballot curing should be outlawed at the federal level, and we should return to the requirement of requesting absentee ballots rather than automatically sending them out.  Otherwise, no future election will again win the confidence of a majority of Americans.  And without trust in balloting, consensual government becomes nonexistent.

Mohave County Board Of Supervisors to Discuss Litigation Against Maricopa County Following Fraudulent Election.  Mohave County certified the fraudulent election under duress after corrupt Katie Hobbs, who oversaw the disaster of an election as Secretary of State, threatened to jail the County Supervisors.  The issues that occurred in the bellwether for statewide elections, Maricopa County, on Election Day disenfranchised all voters in all other Counties.  On November 8, 2022, more than 50% of the tabulators or printers were not operating on Election Day in Maricopa County.  This caused up to four-hour wait times and voters being turned away from the polls.  Thousands were told they could vote at a different precinct after they signed in, which they couldn't.  And tens of thousands were told to dump their ballot into a bin that would be counted later.

Top Maricopa election offices couldn't reconcile 15k disparity in outstanding votes: internal email.  Recently disclosed internal communications between top election officials in Arizona's Maricopa County in the immediate aftermath of Election Day reveal that they struggled to reconcile a discrepancy of almost 16,000 in outstanding ballot totals.  The governor's race in Arizona was decided by a margin of just over 17,000 votes.  Maricopa County was plagued by numerous issues with ballot machines at many of its vote centers on Election Day, resulting in delays and long lines.

A 16,000-ballot discrepancy in Arizona?  Another chip falls for Kari Lake.  Fresh from a court victory granting her the right to examine a random sample of Arizona's ballots from its skeezy midterm election, Kari Lake has managed to notch another advance in her quest to halt the obviously fraudulent election of her Democrat rival, Katie Hobbs. [...] Obviously, somebody knows the answer as to why there were nearly 16,000 more ballots than estimated ballots to be counted, and they aren't saying anything.  Weeks may pass and they may cook up some explanation, but if this were an honest operation, the answer would be right out there now, with no need for an FOIA query and unanswered calls for explanations to shake it out of them.  Something is going on and those nearly 16,000 ballots need to be explained somehow.  Were they 'ghost' voters from dirty voter rolls where ballots were mailed to errant addresses or vacant lots or nursing homes or group homes for the mentally disabled, as described by Jay Valentine [...]?  Were they stolen ballots?  Were they from some trunk stash of ballots collected with the cooperation of Arizona secretary of state Katie Hobbs who just conveniently for herself was both running for office and in charge of counting the ballots to her own election?  Each and every one of these deets forms the mosaic puzzle that explains a monstrous picture of electoral fraud, which seems to have gone on in Arizona.

Arizona judge approves Kari Lake's requests to examine midterm ballots.  A judge in Maricopa County, Arizona, has approved Republican Kari Lake's requests to inspect some ballots before the trial in her challenge to the Arizona gubernatorial race results.  Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Peter Thompson issued a ruling Thursday that approved three of Lake's four demands for inspecting random ballots from the county.  The three types of ballots Thompson approved Lake's team to review included 50 random "ballot-on-demand" printed ballots that were cast on Election Day, 50 random early ballots cast from "six separate Maricopa County batches," and 50 random ballot-on-demand printed ballots that were marked as spoiled.  Lake's request to inspect 50 random early ballots from ballot envelopes was denied due to state law, per the judge.

Arizona 2022 Midterm Elections and Election Fraud — Ballot Harvesting.  While political polling is an art, statistically rigorous polls are generally within the ballpark — yet Arizona 2022 election results don't make sense.  For those seeking integrity in elections, the Arizona midterm election is a hill worth dying on.  Maricopa County, Arizona, was problematic in the 2020 election.  Maricopa County officials stymied legislative and court oversight.  The Board of Supervisors and others allegedly obstructed Arizona's Senate 2020 election audit: "In every way imaginable, the county refused to cooperate with the Senate's designated auditors, the Cyber Ninjas." [...] According to the Gateway Pundit, Maricopa County had another problem in 2020:  It lacked proof of chain of custody for at least 740,000 ballots.  Why?  What is Maricopa County hiding?  The Kari Lake and Katie Hobbs race for Arizona governor was very close, with Hobbs leading by less than 0.6%.  There are many irregularities, including Hobbs's refusal to recuse herself, even though she was responsible for the election as Secretary of State.  Therefore, a real forensic recount/audit is necessary regardless of what Maricopa County may say.The least of which was that 20% to 30% of the vote tabulation machines failed, forcing people to submit their ballots via "Door 3," which then led to reports that Door 3 ballots were comingled with counted ballots.  However, an election judge reported that the tabulation machines were working the night before.  These machines must be isolated/quarantined.  The log files must be examined before they can be altered.

Election-Fraud Corruption Is Deeper than Anyone Can Imagine.  Multiple polls conclude that upwards of 70 percent of Americans think our elections are filled with fraud.  But we're learning it's deeper and more organized than just a few thousand mules dropping fake ballots into election boxes.  The corruption involves both political parties.  Big Tech manipulates search engine results, and takes down "dangerous" websites.  With Elon Musk's revelations, we now see that our own FBI is working actively with Twitter to censor conservatives and silence dissenting speech.  It's next to certain that Twitter wasn't the only social media giant the FBI was giving orders to.  And the mainstream media are all in on ridiculing, dismissing, or attacking people willing to speak out.  Anyone who floats the idea that the Republican red wave disappeared because of poor GOP tactics, or inadequate candidates, is either stupid or part of this conspiracy.

Wisconsin, Drop Boxes, and the Taint of "Zuck Bucks".  Time has only revealed more evidence of serious irregularities in the 2020 election.  Millions of Americans are asking important questions about the trustworthiness of our elections — and the corrupting influence of professional partisans in them, starting with Wisconsin.  The Badger State was the first to be targeted by COVID-19 "relief grants" from the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL), a sleepy Chicago nonprofit raised to national infamy after Mark Zuckerberg pumped roughly $350 million into the group a few months prior to the 2020 election.  Donald Trump won this battleground in 2016 by just over 27,000 votes — a stunning defeat for Hillary Clinton that Joe Biden's presidential campaign had to reverse to win the presidency in 2020.  Biden ultimately took the state by less than 21,000 votes.

Why Moore v. Harper Terrifies Democrats.  he U.S. Supreme Court finally heard oral arguments in Moore v. Harper last week.  The case involves a mundane constitutional issue concerning the definition of "legislature" as used in the elections clause.  Yet it has produced panic among Democrats and a torrent of portentous predictions about the death of democracy from various leftist law professors.  In the Washington Post, for example, Harvard University's Noah Feldman expressed alarm that the court took up the "insane" case at all.  Is Moore v. Harper really insane?  Of course not.  The case arose early this year when the North Carolina Supreme Court struck down a redistricting map produced by the state Legislature, then replaced it with a redistricting scheme of its own.  The North Carolina General Assembly petitioned SCOTUS for relief on the grounds that this action violated Article I, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution.  Moreover, the petitioners are on solid legal ground, as constitutional lawyers David Rivkin Jr. and Andrew Grossman explain in the Wall Street Journal: [...]

Cooking the Books: Why Republicans Always Come up Short.  Election records begin with the voter registry.  A voter, candidate, election official or a curious person with too much time on their hands can review these.  They are usually available to candidates and political parties; sometimes costing thousands of dollars — sometimes free.  Depends on the state.  Republicans don't understand there are two sets of books.  One set we just noted — election rolls — everyone sees.  The hidden set of books contains the ballot and phantom and address inventory.  These three ingredients win elections.  NGOs, leftist entities like homeless shelters, churches, and other groups sponsor registration drives whose registrants are frequently people of no known address who will depart the area shortly after their registration is complete. [...] We ran the voter registration rolls against church addresses in a dozen states and found thousands of people registered at a church in which it was clear there was no place to sleep.  The leftist objective is not to build an army of homeless and get them into civics; it is rather to create an inventory of identities who never vote.  It's important that they never vote — or if they do, their manager fills in the ballot.

Showdown in Arizona: Will Kari Lake Prevail in Her Election Lawsuit?  The election contest alleges that several separate actions or omissions on the part of elections officials constitute "misconduct" within the meaning of the Arizona statute.  The suit also alleges that multiple categories of illegal votes were erroneously included in the canvass.  Finally, the suit alleges Federal Equal Protection and Due Process violations.  Among the claims made in the suit:  (1) The tabulator and printer errors encountered by Election Day voters in Maricopa County were far more widespread than the county claimed, causing extraordinarily long wait times at vote centers all over the county, resulting in disenfranchisement of in-person voters who favored Lake by a 3-to-1 margin. [...] (2) The tabulators and printers used in Maricopa are claimed to be uncertified in violation of ARS §16-442 (which requires the equipment to be certified and in compliance with the Help America Vote Act of 2002), based on the declaration of cyber-expert Clay Parikh, who spent nine years performing security tests on vendor voting systems for the U.S. Elections Assistance Commission. [...] (3) many of the voters who encountered the tabulator or printer "malfunctions" on Election Day were prompted to place their ballots in "Door 3," which was for uncounted ballots. [...] (4) The Maricopa County elections officials failed to adhere to the signature verification requirements of ARS §16-550 with respect to early ballots. [...] (5) The Maricopa County officials failed to generate and maintain the chain-of-custody (COC) documentation required for drop box votes. [...] (6) The suit further alleges First Amendment violations and conflicts of interest against secretary of state Katie Hobbs and Maricopa official Stephen Richer.

Election integrity volunteers 'afraid' to attend recount after Michigan AG threatens prosecution.  An apparent threat by Michigan's Democrat Attorney General Dana Nessel to arrest and prosecute local activists promoting election integrity and anti-voter fraud efforts caused many of them to steer clear of a contentious monitoring effort out of fear of being targeted by the government, according to a Michigan attorney deeply involved in the situation.  Across Michigan on Wednesday, dozens of counties and hundreds of precincts began a recount for two controversial ballot proposals that were approved by voters on Nov. 8.  The first measure in question is Proposal 2, which establishes early voting, expands access to absentee voting and preempts Republican efforts to enact more stringent voter ID rules.  The other measure is Proposal 3, which enshrines abortion rights in the state's constitution.

Arizona Attorney General Nominee Abe Hamadeh Files Election Contest Lawsuit.  Trump-Endorsed Arizona Attorney General Nominee Abe Hamadeh filed a lawsuit on Friday, contesting the fraudulent Midterm Election in Arizona.  Hamadeh is down by 511 votes out of more than 2.5 million ballots cast in his race, and there is an ongoing recount to determine the winner.  The Gateway Pundit reported on Friday that Kari Lake filed a lawsuit to nullify the election for Governor and approve a full audit of signatures and machine failures.  It was revealed by a Runbeck whistleblower in Lake's filing that hundreds of thousands of ballots did not have any chain of custody documentation.

The terrible consequences of stolen elections and government corruption.  The left cheats; they can't win if they don't cheat so they regularly cheat.  Nothing makes that clearer than the 2022 midterm elections in Arizona, Michigan and Pennsylvania.  Polls show that about sixty percent of the American people believe the 2020 election was stolen; those people are not all Republicans.  Chances are that in their heart of hearts, ninety percent of Americans know it was stolen.  The Democrats steal without shame, as if it's their divine right.  They do it blatantly because they know they can get away with it.  The GOP leadership are spineless pushovers as it happens; Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lindsey Graham, Thom Tillis, et al. who gladly do the Democrats' bidding.

Kari Lake Files 70 Page Lawsuit to Throw Out Fraudulent Arizona Midterm Election Results.  Republican Kari Lake on Friday filed a lawsuit to nullify the 2022 midterm election results for the governor's race in the state of Arizona.  On Thursday Trump Attorney Christina Bobb previewed this historic filing.  [Tweet]

Maricopa or Die.  It's been a month since the November elections, and it's obvious that serious irregularities exist in our voting systems.  Unless they are exposed and fixed, our country will have been taken over by our internal and external enemies, and we will never recover.  All of the efforts to fight back against the fraud nationwide have been unsuccessful except for in Maricopa County, Arizona.  Kari Lake, the gubernatorial candidate, is still fighting — filing lawsuit after lawsuit in an effort to overturn the "results" in her campaign, where the current secretary of state in charge of the election, Katie Hobbs, was her opponent.  Hobbs wouldn't recuse herself despite the fact that she would be overseeing her own election.  Unbelievable!  When outrageous election problems caused some counties to withhold their vote certifications, Hobbs threatened them with class 6 felonies.  Not only did Katie Hobbs bully her own county supervisors, but Elon Musk's recent revelations show how she worked with Twitter to silence her critics.  The mainstream media have been working overtime to repress the story and trash the credibility of Kari Lake.  But there are a few brave souls tilting against the windmills of organized propaganda — if you know where to look.

Kari Lake Moves Forward With Lawsuit Challenging "Fraudulent" Election Results.  Just days after Arizona Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs certified all but two contests in the November 8 midterm elections — including her own race for the governor's seat — her Republican opponent, Kari Lake, has filed a second lawsuit challenging the outcome, claiming that thousands of illegal votes cast "far exceed" the 17,117-vote margin of victory for Hobbs.  Lake earlier this week guest-hosted Sebastian Gorka's radio talk show America First, telling listeners, "We have a lot to fix here in Arizona.  And that's why our movement is so powerful."  The former TV anchor has repeatedly called out the mainstream media's slanted coverage of the voting issues on November 8 as the reason why these issues are not known or understood on a national scale: [...]

Philadelphia Man Charged With Postal Crimes Was Also Found With Stolen Mail-In Ballots.  Authorities say a Philadelphia man found with about 15 mail-in ballots that had been stolen from U.S. Postal Service collection boxes faces numerous postal-related charges.  Zachkey James, 27, was charged with impersonation of a U.S. Postal Service (USPS) Mail Carrier, unlawful possession of three USPS arrow keys, mail theft, and possession of stolen mail, U.S. Attorney Jacqueline C. Romero said in a statement.  The arrow key is a universal master key that opens USPS mail boxes and the master door panel for clusters of mail boxes such as those found in apartments.  A July 2022 indictment alleges that while pretending to be a USPS mail carrier, James stole undelivered mail from a collection box near the Kingsessing Post Office in Philadelphia.  In October 2022, while again allegedly pretending to be a mail carrier, James is accused of stealing undelivered mail from a collection box near the East Germantown Post Office in Philadelphia.  And in November 2022, James possessed three arrow keys and approximately 15 mail-in ballots that had been taken from USPS collection boxes, the indictment said.

Yes, the 2020 Election Was Stolen.  For two years, the constant shouting of childish epithets at anyone who would dare question Joe Biden's legitimacy has suppressed a necessary reckoning with an election that was, in every sense, a complete aberration.  It's true Donald Trump and many of his supporters did themselves no favors by embracing some of the more outlandish theories about what happened.  But the story we have been told again and again — that the 2020 election was not only fair, but some miracle of democracy — is propaganda, pure and simple.  Despite the media's heavy-handed narrative, we do not and never will really know what happened in the early morning hours of November 4, 2020, and those chaotic days that preceded Biden's media coronation.  It is disingenuous to dismiss the role of fraud in such an unprecedented scenario:  an election with historic turnout that, thanks to the widespread adoption of an unconventional voting method prone to cheating, was not decided until an unusually dilated, shadowy tabulating process had run its course in a handful of heavily partisan jurisdictions.  If an election so strange had gone the other way, we can be sure the Left would not be mocking voter fraud theories but treating them like orthodoxy.  In the end, Trump lost the Electoral College by about 50,000 votes in a few swing states.  It has never been proven that the election was stolen at the ballot box.  But to anybody not blinded by partisanship, it has never been an implausible question.

The media loves to pretend that the 2020 election was clean.  The media is making a big deal about President Trump's recent expression of frustation at the electoral rigging that went on in the 2020 election. [...] The author knows that the media, including Yahoo!, Google, Facebook, and Twitter, intentionally buried the well-researched article by the New York Post about massive corruption in the Biden family, but they still doesn't want the public to know.  Meanwhile, all of these same entities that buried the truth about the Bidens also interfered in all the elections since 2016 with the intentional lies about Russian collusion to destroy Donald Trump.  The media is excusing their non-reporting on the Biden family corruption by stating that they couldn't verify the story but that is [false].  They repeatedly will parrot or reprint stories from the New York Times, the Washington Post, USA Today, ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR without doing any verification.  They repeat stories that push the leftist agenda and go after Republicans while intentionally hiding the truth about the candidates they support.

Maricopa Mulligan.  I must ask the obvious question:  why was the Arizona Secretary of State, the office responsible for overseeing elections, not forced to recuse herself from overseeing an election where she was running for Governor?  You can bet that if this were a Republican SecState, the leftists would have again been screaming from the rafters.  And then there is the Supervisor of Elections in Maricopa County who was running to be the next Arizona SecState.  Yeah, move along, nothing to see here, just everyday coincidences in the largest voter population county in Arizona.  Why is it, in a State with a Republican-controlled legislature and governor, that all this was allowed to happen?  There is no argument, unconstitutional voter disenfranchisement occurred in Maricopa County, Arizona.  This level of incompetence, or possibly purposeful nefarious actions, resulted in the failure of election systems that should have been Beta tested prior to election day.  Therefore, honest Arizonans looking to cast their ballot were denied.  What happens now?  I do not think it is wrong to say the 2022 midterm election in Maricopa County, Arizona must be redone ... in golf it is called a Mulligan.  If that is not the case, then we have accepted the unconstitutional practice of voter suppression and disenfranchisement in the United States ... meaning there will be more.

More Circumstantial Evidence of Vote Fraud: Arizona's Numbers Don't Add Up.  Florida and Arizona are, respectively, 52.7 percent and 53.2 percent non-Hispanic white, with Latinos comprising more than a quarter of each state's population.  Yes, Hispanics, who traditionally lean Democratic, comprise a larger share (32.3 percent) of Arizona's population than they do of the Sunshine State's (26.8).  On the other hand, black Americans have for decades been more solidly Democratic (90-plus percent) than any group, and they comprise 15.5 percent of Florida's population but only 4.7 percent of Arizona's. [...] DeSantis and Florida's legislators had taken steps to eliminate vote fraud in their state — in particular, the mail-in ballot variety, the kind most prone to fraud.  And now there's yet more circumstantial evidence of vote fraud, another anomaly within the anomaly:  That up-ballot Arizona blue wave was, oddly, accompanied by a down-ballot red wave.  American Thinker's Dennis Lund provided the numbers recently.  Calculating an average of the votes for the four up-ballot races won by Democrats — governor, Senate, attorney general, and secretary of state — informs that the Democrats got 1,285,500 average votes per candidate while the Republicans got an average of 1,219,750, for a differential of 65,750.

President Trump Was Correct About the Constitution and Elections — Kari Lake's Lawsuit Shows Why.  What President Trump is noting, is the exact same reason why Kari Lake's lawsuit, like every other election lawsuit before it, will fail.  Our U.S. Constitution permits election fraud and manipulation, as long as that state level election fraud and manipulation does not break federal law.  [Video clip]

Supreme Court Makes Decision on Dominion Voting Systems Case.  The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear a case alleging that Facebook and Dominion Voting Systems had an illegal and undue influence on the 2020 elections.  The court rejected the appeal from eight Americans without comment.  The group was led by Kevin O'Rourke and had lost two previous rounds in court.  In May, U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Tymkovich rejected the suit.  The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals followed suit, leading to the request for the Supreme Court's intervention, according to The Hill.

Interesting SCOTUS case hit the docket: Brunson vs Adams, et al.  Their case hinges on constitutional amendment violations of the right to due process.  When an election has concerns of fraud, constitution allows for a 10 day investigation to look at the potential fraud questions and determine if fraud did or did not occur.  This case is NOT one of election fraud, it is about congress and the senate NOT doing their oath of office and violating Amendment I to the constitution, Article VI of the constitution, the 14th Amendment of the constitution, section 3, the 5th and the 9th Amendment of the constitution, as well as a couple of Utah State Constitution articles.  Most pertain to due process, the right to investigation, and not performing the 10 day investigation when questions of election fraud were presented to congress.  It began in the state of Utah, then transferred to federal court when there were originally 3 defendants listed, Biden and Harris as well as Nancy Pelosi, and then 381 other defendents AND over 100 Jane/John Does to the defendent list.  All are Federal Government members that are named so far.

Extreme Danger: "Boring" Election Issues.  People say to me, "Was the 2020 election stolen?"  Answer, "Yes."  But the hard part is how.  There were three main things that made the difference.  Number one, suspension of the rules.  In other words, because of COVID, the laws we agreed to ahead of time to run an election were suspended.  One of the beautiful things about a democratic republic is you agree on the rules in advance. [...] The second thing that happened, and this is the most important.  Philanthropy, primarily through the Center for Technology and Civic Life, started pouring money through 501(c)3s.  The Mark Zuckerberg-funded C3s, poured money into state and local election offices.  They would give the state and election office money and say, you now need to enact these policies.  In the old days, giving a government official money and telling them what to do with it was called a bribe, right?  It was.  It was a bribe.  If I were to give money to a government official and say, you need to now do this, I would be arrested.  But that is what happened all over the country to the tune of almost $600 million, according to 990 filings.

Democrat Voter Fraud: A Brief History.  The 2004 Washington state gubernatorial contest between Republican Dino Rossi and Democrat Christine Gregoire ended with Rossi up by 261 votes.  A machine recount left him still ahead by 42 votes.  The state Democrats paid over $700,000 for a hand recount, and whaddaya know...  Votes started appearing from any and all conceivable sources.  A bag containing votes here, an electoral official's car there, it's surprising they didn't start falling out of the sky like the frogs in Magnolia.  By the end of the year Gregoire was ahead by 130 votes and was inaugurated on January 12.  Rossi [...] continued fighting, taking Gregoire to court over the blatantly illegitimate votes.  A Pierce County judge tossed the votes out, only to be overruled by the Washington State Supreme Court.  A final decision didn't come for six months, when Judge John Bridges, a Democrat appointee, tossed aside the concept of "chain of custody" to find in favor of Gregoire.  Rossi should have continued on to the U.S. Supreme Court — after all, a critical legal concept was being overthrown — but he does get an E for Effort, since he did more than any other Republican in recent memory.  The Washington case enshrined the concept that all Democratic votes, whether they emerged from a portal into hyperspace or were discovered in a 2000 B.C. Sumerian temple, had to be counted no matter what the circumstances.  GOP votes... not so much.

Twittergate — The Fix Was In.  After years of denial and deplatforming of those who dared question the collusion of Big Tech with Leftist deep state officials to influence the 2020 presidential election and make sure that Donald Trump was not reelected, the facts have been revealed.  Elon Musk on Friday night revealed through Matt Taibbi (who though he is a Leftist seems actually to be a genuine journalist), how Twitter spiked the story of Hunter Biden's laptop and prevent the sordid details of his influence-peddling for The Big Guy to get out to the public, and possibly tip the election in Trump's favor.  Since the revelation, the establishment media and leading Democrats have been in furious damage control mode, insisting that the revelations don't reveal what everyone can see they reveal, and even if they do, they don't matter.  But it's undeniable now:  the fix was in.

That stench from Arizona grows.  It wasn't just Democrat operatives from Biden campaign who were directing Twitter to censor posts unfavorable to Joe Biden's presidential prospects behind closed doors.  Arizona Democrat gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs, whose job at the time was sitting secretary of state, also got in on the act. [...] The Post Millennial doesn't mention the topic, but the tweets in question concerned claims by some obscure character with a low follower count that Arizona's electoral system was owned by foreign interests.  Why that was so important at the time is something of a mystery, given the variety of claims out there, but it is known that Chinese involvement in electoral infrastructure did result in an arrest in California shortly after the New York Times reported that the claim was absurd.  That Twitter jumped to the request to make the deletions without verifying whether Hobbs's office was telling the truth is questionable activity right there.

The Left is Using Lawfare Including Threats of Prosecution to Ignore Massive Voter Disenfranchisement.  We are living in an unprecedented era, where the left has now mastered voter disenfranchisement and suppression, largely by controlling the legal system where statutory violations and crimes normally would be stopped.  Instead, the left comes up with excuses to explain away every anomaly, even though the statistical odds of all of them taking place — almost exclusively hurting Republicans — are unbelievable.  Of the 70-plus vote centers in Maricopa County that were plagued by bizarre printing problems affecting people's ability to vote, almost every one was located in an extremely Republican area, averaging more than 300 percent more Republicans than Democrats.

If They Want To Win, Republicans Must Beat Democrats At Their Own Game.  Turns out, perpetually masked Covidians afraid of their own shadows do vote, or at least they can be convinced to turn in their mail-in ballots to Democratic operatives for delivery to the nearest polling place.  You can cry cheating, and many, including Trump, did ad nauseam, but you can't argue with the effectiveness of the strategy.  Use Covid as an excuse to send a mail-in ballot to EVERY voter, then make sure as many ballots as possible that are returned survive any challenges and are counted.  You don't need hacked voting machines to ensure victory if you do that, because we know who is most likely to commit shenanigans on those things during the [...] many points of contact they have before they are actually in official — even honest official — hands.

Arizona Democrat Katie Hobbs certifying her own election in her favor seems like an actual 'threat to democracy'.  It is certainly not a "threat to democracy" when people challenge elections, especially when many state election officials intentionally violate their own state laws.  Speaking of which... Arizona law, A.R.S. § 38.503 dictates that:  ["]Any public officer or employee who has... a substantial interest in any decision of a public agency... shall refrain from participating in any manner as an officer or employee in such decision.["]  Well what's a "public agency"?  Well, per A.R.S. § 38.502, a public agency is, among other things, "[an] administrative body of the state" — and whether intentionally or not, A.R.S. § 38.510 requires that anyone who violates the aforementioned law, "shall forfeit his public office[.]"  [Indeed], now of whom does that remind you?  If it were me, I'd say that Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (a public officer) has a "substantial interest" in the certification of election in which she is a candidate, and the only appropriate, and more importantly, as it appears, legal response to "decisions" ought to be one of recusal.  But I'm no lawyer, so what do I know?

'Twitter Files' Fallout Rains Down On Arizona.  Elon Musk's release of information detailing how Twitter suppressed speech during the 2020 presidential election is only the beginning of the story, according to one Texas congressman.  "Investigations are coming," Republican Rep. Troy Nehls of Texas tweeted Friday [12/2/2022].

Did postal workers steal thousands in campaign donations to Elise Stefanik?  You might have thought you were having trouble with your mailman (or woman) but hopefully, it's nowhere near as bad as what allegedly happened to New York Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik.  In a complaint filed with the Postmaster General, Stefanik's attorneys claim that postal workers ripped open packages destined for her campaign offices during this year's election, stealing as much as $20,000 in campaign donations and exposing hundreds of donors to potential identity theft or fraud.  Photographic evidence of the destroyed packages was provided, but the USPS doesn't seem to have made any progress in tracking down the thieves.

Katie Hobbs' Office Threatened County Board With Arrest, Felony Indictment If They Didn't Certify Results.  Democratic Arizona Secretary of State and Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs' top deputy threatened the Mohave County Board of Supervisors with prosecution if it didn't certify her election results before a Monday deadline, according to emails and documents reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation.  Arizona State Elections Director Kori Lorick wrote several letters and emails to members of the board, warning them of criminal charges if the refused to certify the results in time.  The letters included threats of lawsuits against the members for "nonfeasance," as well, per the emails.

Deposition Reveals Complex Plot by the FBI to Influence the 2020 Election.  The 2020 election remains one of the most contentious in history, and the more we learn about how deep the government's interference went, the more disturbing things get.  According to Eric Schmitt, the current attorney general of Missouri and its newly-elected senator, the FBI was having weekly meetings with social media companies prior to election day in 2020 to collude on suppressing information.  That was revealed in the deposition of Elvis Chan, the FBI's liaison in the scheme.  [Tweets]  According to Schmitt, the FBI was colluding with social media companies, giving them specific direction on what content to suppress.  That means specific URLs and accounts.  The social media companies, all led by leftwing hacks at that point, were apparently more than happy to play along. [...] In this case, the FBI was running a complex scheme, colluding with social media companies to target specific accounts and news stories, with seemingly all of the moves made being politically beneficial to Democrats.  In doing so, they shut down a verifiably true story about Hunter Biden's laptop that could have swung the entire election.  The suppression of information regarding COVID-19 just so happened to help Democrats as well.

Advice for Kari, Blake, and Mark.  It appears that Democrat candidates won most of the Arizona midterm political contests, and that is a fact we should all accept.  However, many citizens have doubts about whether it was fairly counted, and those doubts will not be resolved without analysis, testing, and transparent reporting.  Standard ballot recounts will not suffice. [...] If there was fraud in this election, it won't be detected by a simple recount.  A real audit should be designed to determine the validity of the ballots that were cast.  Until we restore election integrity by requiring hard forms of identification to accompany all mail-in ballots (not just signatures), post-election auditing will have to be expanded and strengthened.  There will be much opposition to these audit procedures, and some may be blocked; however, it is essential.  Without it, the public will be skeptical of election results, and with very good reason.

Ohioans Vote In Favor of Banning Non-Citizens From Voting In Local Elections.  Ohio Republicans are seeking for Ohio to become the seventh state to ban noncitizens from voting in elections.  On November 8th Ohioans voted on Issue 2 which was an amendment to the state's constitution that would no longer allow noncitizens to vote in local elections in Ohio.  Over 3 million Ohioans voted against noncitizens from voting in local elections whereas 900,000 voted in favor of noncitizens voting in US local elections.

Secretary of State's Office confirms it has received Cochise County certification.  Compelled by a court order, the Cochise County Board of Supervisors certified the results of the Nov. 8 election Thursday on a 2-0 vote.  The vote means all Arizona counties have agreed to send their results to the Secretary of State's Office and ends a weekslong election drama spooling out of the southeastern Arizona county.  The board's two Republican supervisors since October have raised doubts about the reliability of vote tabulation machines.  Their actions resulted in a series of losing court battles, the most recent coming Thursday, when a judge ordered them to canvass the election results and get the results to the Arizona secretary of state by 5 p.m.  The Secretary of State's Office confirmed Thursday evening that it had received the Cochise certification, which will allow it to proceed with the statewide canvass, scheduled for 10 a.m.  Monday.

Poll Worker Turned Whistleblower Exposes 84% Of Maricopa County, AZ Poll Workers Think the Election was Rigged.  How many more elections are people going to let Democrats flat out steal before people finally rise up and take back their state legislators and arrest the criminals behind it all? [...] Anyone who believes Democrats won this past election or the 2020 election need to have their heads examined.  [Video clip]

Apparently, No Lawyer Wants to Defend Cochise County's Refusal to Certify Election Results.  The increasing ridiculousness of the stance of the supervisors in Cochise County, Ariz., appears to be another hard lesson of, "Don't elect lunatics to positions of serious public responsibility": [...] When no lawyer wants to take your case, that's probably a sign that you've stumbled into a position that is exceptionally difficult to defend in a court of law.  If you are a Republican officeholder, you enjoy the same First Amendment rights as anyone else and have every right to publicly argue that the Arizona election had too many problems to be legitimate.  You would be wrong on the facts, as Maricopa County's elections department — and county lawyer Rachel Mitchell — have declared, repeatedly, that "every voter was afforded the ability to legally and securely cast their ballot," despite the problems with the printers printing too lightly to be scanned.  Every ballot was legible to the naked eye; it was simply a matter of whether those ballots could be tabulated in the machine at the polling place.

Election lawsuits pile up in Arizona, as counties, candidates challenge 2022 midterms.  As the 2022 midterm election is nearing certification in Arizona, lawsuits and court rulings are piling up amid continuing revelations of myriad failures in the administration of the election in Maricopa County.  After Maricopa experienced a host of problems on Election Day at many of its vote centers, one county subsequently chose not to certify its election by the Monday deadline, while another county certified "under duress," according to two supervisors on the county board.  The Mohave County Board of Supervisors received an email from Secretary of State Katie Hobbs' office on Monday saying that they could face felony charges if they didn't certify the election that day.

Democrat Katie Hobbs Demanded Mohave County Certify Election Results for Her or Face 2 Years in Prison.  According to a bombshell new report by the Daily Caller, Democratic governor-elect of Arizona, Katie Hobbs' top deputy sent a shocking threat to the Mohave County Board of Supervisors, demanding that they certify election results in her favor or else be met with prison time.  Arizona State Elections Director Kori Lorick sent multiple threatening letters, saying they would face lawsuits and prison if the election results were not certified.  "The Secretary of State did contact our County and cited A.R.S. Section 16-1010 as a statute that could be used to prosecute [the board] if they did not certify the election," said Mohave County Attorney Matt Smith, the Mohave County Attorney.  The cited statute is a Class 6 felony that could result in two years in prison.

PA County Cements Suppression Of 'Thousands' Of Voters By Flip-Flopping To Certify Disaster-Plagued Election.  After refusing to certify its general election results due to widespread failures that potentially disenfranchised voters, the board of elections for Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, has flip-flopped and voted to certify its election results anyway — after pressure from a lawsuit by known Democrat election meddler Marc Elias.  This past Monday, Luzerne's board of elections voted against certifying its results from the Nov. 8 election after voters experienced significant problems casting their ballots.  About a third of Luzerne's precincts were out of ballot paper as early as 9 a.m. and turning away voters for several hours, according to election observers affiliated with the Committee on House Administration, a U.S. congressional committee that helps oversee elections.  As a result, thousands of Luzerne County residents were affected and likely did not cast ballots.

Katie Hobbs' Office Threatened County Board With Arrest, Indictment If They Didn't Certify Results.  Democratic Arizona Secretary of State and Gov.-elect Katie Hobbs' top deputy threatened the Mohave County Board of Supervisors with prosecution if it didn't certify her election results before a Monday deadline, according to emails and documents reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation.  Arizona State Elections Director Kori Lorick wrote several letters and emails to members of the board, warning them of criminal charges if the refused to certify the results in time.  The letters included threats of lawsuits against the members for "nonfeasance," as well, per the emails. "The Secretary of State did contact our County and cited A.R.S. Section 16-1010 as a statute that could be used to prosecute [the board] if they did not certify the election," said Matt Smith, the Mohave County Attorney, to the DCNF.  The statute is an Arizona felony statute regarding election officials who "fail to perform their duties" under the law; as a Class 6 felony, upon conviction, it could result in up to two years' imprisonment.

Pennsylvania's Delaware County, Pennsylvania, is the undisputed leader in ballot harvesting.  [Thread reader]  Nearly [two thirds] of all Democratic Mail-In Ballot Applications happen in the Spring.  That's because counties are statutorily required to mail the prior year's Mail-In Ballot Applicants if they wish to re-enroll for the current year.  Essentially, Democratic campaigns "chase" those county mailers with digital ads, texts, robocalls or even their own mailer to get Democratic voters to re-enroll for a Mail-In Ballot.  Democratic campaigns leverage taxpayer-funded mailers to do most of their ballot harvesting and save money.

Here's How They Did it: Real-time Election Fraud.  Database latency — a geeky term, but that's how they did it! [...] County election managers change the zip code of 31,000 voters on September 3.  Ballots go out that week.  Those 31,000 are undeliverable.  Someone collects those valid ballots.  On September 15th, those addresses are quietly changed back.  National Change of Address Database (NCOA) will not pick up those address changes.  They didn't happen because there is no history.  The 31,000 citizens were getting their mail just fine — except for ballots.  Ballot addresses were driven by the county mail-in ballot database — the one that was changed, then changed back.  Many states send ballots to everyone; the recipient is none the wiser that they never received a mail-in ballot.  They may vote in person.  Oops!  "You already voted!"  Ever heard that?  Welcome to database latency.  Our bad guy pals know they can change voter rolls, take an action, then change them back.  Who would know?  A thousand voters are changed from inactive, voted, then changed back, and how would you ever know?  With lots of complex footwork, you could eventually tell from their voter history file — months after the election.

Citizenship and Intervening in Elections.  With the ongoing invasion over the last two years by millions of foreigners at our southern border, America has a much bigger election integrity problem than before Joe Biden became president.  So, just how did California, Arizona, New Mexico and other states with large enclaves of illegal aliens ensure that the recent invaders (as well as the millions of previous invaders from decades past) didn't vote in the November 8 federal elections?  You see, noncitizen voting in federal elections is illegal.  But Democrats seem to see nothing wrong with the invasion.  Indeed, the Left wants illegal aliens to be able to vote in America's elections; see "Why Non-Citizens Should Be Allowed to Vote" by Ron Hayduk at Jacobin.  (Americans who believe in the ideal of citizenship won't approve of Mr. Hayduk.)  However, if anyone can vote in America's elections, then just what is the value of American citizenship?  Given all the freebies the feds are handing out to the invaders, some citizens may see the invaders as having more rights than they have.

Election Predictions and Other Mistakes.  [Scroll down] Beyond the lies, there were also possible Democrat shenanigans.  For example, in Maricopa County, Arizona, ballots were not printed dark enough to be read by tabulation machines.  This reportedly caused problems at 70 out of 223 voting centers, or roughly 31%.  A second report claimed that the number of voting centers affected by printer/tabulator problems was almost 63%, accompanied by long lines at most voting centers.  Was this a simple mistake?  The voting system was tested before Election Day as required by state law.  However, Republican Party chair Mickie Niland said pre-election testing of the printer/tabulator system had been largely ceremonial and insufficiently broad to catch the printer problem. [...] Many of our present election problems began during the run-up to the 2020 vote.  Some states altered election requirements under cover of COVID-19.  Universal mail-in balloting was allowed in some places, and early voting was extended in others.  In some cases, ballot-harvesting was allowed, and rules for signature-matching for mail-in ballots were relaxed in others.  Judges or state election commissions made some of these changes in violation of established election laws.  Why are these changes significant?  Mail-in balloting and early voting favor Democrats because turnout is often a problem for them.  If you give every registered Democrat a ballot, maybe fill out a few ballots for the deceased and those in nursing homes, and give them lots of time to get those ballots submitted, you solve the turnout problem.

The New Voting System that Gave Democrats a GOP House Seat is Dangerous.  Alaska's sole congressional seat, which had been in GOP hands for 49 years, was recently captured by Democrat Mary Peltola.  The victory has been touted by liberals as either vindication of their agenda or as portending the end of the career of Sarah Palin, Peltola's most high-profile opponent.  Yet the result, which took weeks to finalize, was easily explainable:  It was a function of Alaska's new ranked-choice voting (RCV) and Top-four Primary (TFP) system — a system electoral engineers would like to institute nationwide.  In essence, this system created a situation in which Palin and another Republican, Nick Begich, were both running against Peltola in the general election and divided up the GOP vote.

Is this the Supreme Court case that will drain the swamp?  Loy, Raland, Deron, and Gaynor Brunson all witnessed what they believed to be the theft of the 2020 election and decided to file suit.  However, the interesting approach that they have taken is not to make a formal complaint that the election was stolen; instead, they have chosen to sue members of the U.S. Congress who voted not to investigate whether any election irregularities may have occurred that could have affected the outcome.  In other words, the Brunson Brothers were motivated to sue because these elected officials broke their oaths to protect the Constitution of the United States.  The Brunson Brothers believed that, to support and defend the Constitution, an investigation into possible fraud needed to take place.  Otherwise, how could anyone know with certainty whether the election had been secure?  What shocked the Brunson Brothers was that only 147 members of the US Congress voted in support of the proposed ten-day audit of the election before certifying the ballot count of the Electoral College, while, according to the Washington Post, 377 members voted against the proposed ten-day investigation, and eight abstained.

Arizona County Chair Reveals He Was Forced to Certify Katie Hobbs' Election 'Under Duress'.  The Chair of the Mohave County Board of Supervisors stated earlier that he was only voting to certify the state election under legal duress.  "I found out today that I have no choice but to vote 'Aye' or I will be arrested and charged with a felony," Gould said.  The Arizona Secretary of State has threatened to charge election officials with Class 6 felony charges if they don't certify her election.  Secretary of State Katie Hobbs has filed a lawsuit against Cochise County, which refused to certify the Arizona state election by the Nov. 28 deadline.

Republicans in Arizona county refuse to certify 2022 election.  Republican officials in one Arizona county said Monday they will not certify the 2022 election results that have Democrats winning races for governor, US Senate and other statewide offices — setting up a showdown with the Democratic secretary of state and governor-elect, who vowed to sue if the deadline was missed.  Two Republican members of the Cochise County Board of Supervisors voted to delay certifying the results amid claims that the county's voting machines weren't properly accredited — even though state election officials have said they have provided proof that they are.  "In that group's opinion, the secretary [of state] has not been responsive in providing proof of lawful accreditation of voting machine laboratories," GOP Supervisor Tom Crosby said.

Arizona county voted to certify election "under duress".  The 2022 midterm "election that never ends" in Arizona is still managing to stir up controversies even after the deadline for certifying the election passed yesterday.  Maricopa County remains the focus of attention for much of the current clown show.  They somehow certified their election results last night, though court challenges are still playing out.  But other counties have been witnessing additional drama as well.  Mohave County, located in the northwestern corner of the state, is far less densely populated than Maricopa, but their Board of Supervisors raised eyebrows last night when two of the members voted to certify the election results, but only did so "under duress" after they were threatened with jail time if they failed to vote "aye" during the roll call.  One of the members raised the obvious question of why they should bother to have a vote if the decision to certify is mandatory.

Arizona county board supervisors say they voted to certify election 'under duress'.  Two members of Arizona's Mohave County Board of Supervisors said Monday voted to certify the results of the Nov. 8 elections "under duress," claiming he was forced to do so under threat of jail time.  "I vote 'aye' under duress.  I found out today that I have no choice but to vote 'Aye' or I will be arrested and charged with a felony," Gould said while casting his vote.  "I don't think that that is what the founders had in mind when they used the democratic process to elect our leaders." [...] Arizona has been mired in allegations of electoral fraud since the 2020 presidential election, when President Joe Biden narrowly edged out former President Donald Trump and the state became a focal point for his narrative that mass ballot fraud altered the final result.

Recording Shows Warnock Campaign Calling Out-of-State Residents for Votes.  The Georgia runoff election is quickly approaching, with Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock battling it out for the last undecided, US Senate seat of the cycle.  Naturally, that means electioneering is in full swing.  Warnock has famously received a metric ton of out-of-state cash, and now, he's apparently contacting out-of-state voters to vote for him.  Yeah, I'm as confused as you are.  Dom Lucre, who is a resident of Tennessee and hasn't lived in Georgia in years, was called by the Warnock campaign, and he recorded the entire exchange.  Here's what it sounded like.  [Tweet]

How Will Anyone Trust The Georgia Runoff Results When There's Enough Illegal Voting To Tip The Scales?  Initial data from the November 2022 general election indicates more than 25,000 Georgians may have voted illegally in the general election.  And the problem appears poised to repeat itself when voters cast their ballots in the state's runoff election for senator on Dec. 6, 2022.  Absent a win by a substantial margin by either Republican challenger Herschel Walker or Democrat incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock, litigation, with the potential ordering of a new election, seems likely — a scenario that would have proved disastrous to the country had control of the Senate remained in play.  In a complaint filed earlier this month with the Georgia State Board of Elections, Mark Davis, an expert in voter data analytics and residency issues, alerted the state to data indicating that in both November 2020 and November 2022, thousands of Georgians may have voted illegally by moving but then, rather than re-registering to vote as required by the state's election code, casting ballots in the county in which they no longer resided.  Davis's complaint noted that due to space constraints, he was providing his supporting data in a detailed letter to State Board of Elections member Ed Lindsey.

Maricopa County Response to Arizona AG Materially Conflicts with Instructions on Election Day.  Maricopa County sent a haughty letter to Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright in response to her office demanding answers regarding voter suppression on Election Day.  The Gateway Pundit reported on the serious issues in Maricopa County's General Election on November 8.  Due to the incompetence of Maricopa County and Katie Hobbs, tabulators were down, printers ran out of ink, and long, long lines kept Republican voters waiting to cast their ballots.  Republican voters were told to drop their ballots into "box 3" to be counted later.  Election experts and election workers later reported that these uncounted ballots were mixed with already counted ballots, leaving no way of knowing if all legal votes were counted!  Republicans had at least 72% of the turnout on election day, and this was a deliberate attempt to silence the largest County's Republican voters.

Two House Races Still Wait For Final Results More Than Two Weeks After Midterms.  Seventeen days since voters went to the polls to cast their ballots in the midterm elections, two U.S. House races remain undeclared.  Republican John Duarte leads by fewer than 600 votes in California's 13th district against Democrat Adam Gray with 99% of the votes in, according to the Associated Press.  In Colorado, incumbent Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert declared victory after her Democratic opponent Adam Frisch conceded last week, but only 550 votes sit between them, triggering a recount and more delayed results.  Both races that are holding up the final results of a tumultuous midterm election season sit in blue states with lax rules on mail-in ballots, marking a stark contrast between the laws that allow for quick results from some Republican-led states.

The Uniparty, FTX, and Electoral Fraud.  Our country may be nearing the conclusion of the most dangerous game of political "chicken" in history.  We have just experienced the second great election steal in two years.  Will the Uni-Party of Democrats and RINOs succeed in evaporating the Red Wave?  RINO politicians and media are complaining that conservatives were too lazy to vote in November, but Republicans, independents and even Democrats turned out in such huge numbers that the cheating had to be so blatant that it is now impossible to overlook.  The "big four" shows on FOX, normally famous for exposing Democrat stupidity and corruption, could have focused on the fraud in a different city or state for each segment since the election, but instead have prattled on about every shiny object except 2022 fraud.  Will corrupt legislators, governors, and politicians succeed in quashing the protests and legal challenges?  A series of developments is providing hope that the entire web of deceit, manipulation, and corruption may soon be unraveled.  People all over the world are figuring out what is going on with tainted elections and are protesting.

No-Spot Dice and Modern Elections.  For a long time now, but especially in 2020 and 2022, American elections have been compromised by vote fraud.  New York's Tammany Hall was the most famous example in the 1800s.  Everyone knew that LBJ stole his first congressional seat in Texas with Ballot Box 13.  It's been so well accepted that Chicago vote fraud put John F. Kennedy over the top in 1960 that politicians, including JFK himself, have joked about it for generations.  So, Democrat vote fraud in America is nothing new.  It's been so deeply factored into American politics that every Republican candidate, in planning his campaign and reviewing his polling, asks not the question "can we win?" but rather, "can we overcome the margin of fraud?"  Three things have changed in recent years.  First, the universal knowledge that vote fraud was baked into the system has suddenly become an unspeakable statement.  Acknowledge its existence and you're called an "election denier."  You must join the establishment in parroting the pretense that "there is no vote fraud at all," or you are cancelled.  Second, Democrats have become more and more blatant about it.  If we were told that Republicans lost cities like Chicago, Cleveland, and New York by margins of four to one, or even five to one, we began to believe that such wipeouts might indeed be possible.  It probably never was.

Voter Suppression?  Average Wait Time To Vote In Georgia Is Two Minutes.  Georgia polls have an average wait time of two minutes per voter across the entire state according the Georgia Secretary of State's office, WABE News reporter Rahul Bali reported Tuesday [11/8/2022].  Bali reported that the polls had maintained a two-minute wait time, and pointed to results as early as 7 p.m. EST, despite claims that Georgia's voter laws are "suppressive."  In past elections, Georgia voters have reported voter suppression after waiting in long lines, but early voting and an updated voter information page seem to have brought wait times down.  When early voting opened for Georgia in October, record turnouts were reported with 434,567 Georgians casting their vote; however, Democratic challenger Stacey Abrams continued to criticize Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, claiming he was working to suppress voters.  "It does not mean voter suppression doesn't exist," Abrams said during a rally.  "But we're stronger, better, and faster than it."

California Still Has More Than 250,000 Uncounted Ballots.  While Arizona's handling of the midterm election has been the focus of media outlets and pundits for some time, California still has more than 250,000 uncounted ballots across the state.  It's been more than two weeks since America voted in the 2022 midterms, yet the largest state in the country is still counting ballots.  The vast majority of the uncounted ballots are from people who voted by mail, with Sacramento County failing to count a whopping 84,000 mail-in ballots. [...] The remaining ballots represent a tiny fraction of the total votes cast in the Golden State in 2022, but it's prompted some to ask what is taking so long.  The answer is simple:  In 2020, during the pandemic, California, along with other states, began mailing ballots to all registered voters.  The practice became permanent in 2021, CNN reported, and ballots postmarked on or before Election Day must be accepted for up to seven days after the polls close.

Surprised by the Midterm Election Results?  Take a Look at the Data.  It is just a theory, but I believe that aggressive ballot-harvesting is the most likely explanation for the disparity between pollster predictions and actual results in the 2022 midterm elections.  In the movie, 2,000 Mules, True the Vote (TTV), the organization run by Catharine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips, described the prevalence of ballot-harvesting in the 2020 election.  Although its estimates are only rough approximations (based on cell phone analysis), TTV believes there were up to 200,000 and 275,000 harvested ballots in Arizona and Pennsylvania, respectively.  Nevada was not included in the TTV analysis, but since the end of 2020, Nevada has taken all restrictions off of harvesting.  It is now legal to harvest ballots in Nevada, and it can be done anonymously in any quantity with ballots from unregistered homeless people, drug addicts — anyone.

Hard Truths and Radical Possibilities.  Mollie Hemingway showed in her excellent book, Rigged, that the technically legal though unscrupulous maneuvers undertaken by the Left — including legacy and social media propaganda and censorship, last-minute changes to election laws, and private money poured into partisan "voter education" efforts — were more than enough to alter the outcome of the 2020 election.  This new reality became even clearer this month.  The highly manipulative practice of ballot harvesting — which reached new lows of cynicism in the recent midterms — makes a mockery of elections as an expression of popular deliberation and rational will.  As Daniel Greenfield has written, the Democrats didn't beat back the red wave because the voters chose them; they won by choosing their voters.  It is hard to see how elections under these circumstances are substantially different from the artificial voting rituals practiced by the "people's republics," i.e., communist regimes of the 20th century.

VoterGA Announced Yesterday that It is Suing Certain Counties in Georgia.  Garland Favorito and VoterGA held a press conference yesterday [11/22/2022] where they announced that they were suing three counties in Georgia to prevent them from destroying ballots from the 2020 Election.  VoterGA shared its press release from yesterday where the team is demanding from the court that certain counties in Georgia retain their paper ballots from the 2020 Election.  These same counties destroyed their electronic ballots, which is against the law during the period that the law stipulates they be maintained.

Anatomy of the 2022 Steal, Part 2.  Delaware County was in court for 9 hours Monday [11/21/2022] on a chain of custody issue.  The thumb drives and votes disappeared into a closed building for six hours and no official poll watchers were allowed in.  In Arizona, there is so much evidence of fraud, three of Arizona's 15 counties have delayed certification. [...] In almost every township or county, the people who run elections are funded by those men (generally) who provide county services.  It is absolutely critical to them that their gravy train continue.  Stenstrom and Hoopes describe the pattern in Delaware County, Penn.  It is a "very tight-knit collaboration between the Uniparty and variously {sic} business interests that include closely held law firms, family accounting firms, local and county law enforcement departments that might be cooperative, local justice departments, and members of the judiciary.  All of whom work together when it suits them, and any other personage with a substantial financial interest in creating an integrated political, law enforcement, and justice environment that will be favorable to them in myriad legal and financial transactions between elections.  It is within this corporate fabric that the machinations of election fraud are perpetrated."  In essence, The Machine consists of everyone who profits off the contracts and public money given out by the politicians who win.  The Machine is a malignant co-operative, a unified malevolence.  It consists of the men and some women in the community who sit on your county council or work for the Board of Elections.  They are criminals involved in a criminal conspiracy.  This is why, despite the 2020 mess in Maricopa, the same election officials were "reelected".  They are not elected, they are installed.

Arizona Attorney General Nominee Abe Hamadeh Files First Lawsuit Contesting Rigged 2022 Election In Arizona.  Arizona Attorney General Nominee Abe Hamadeh has filed the state's first statement of election contest in the Arizona Superior Court.  Abe Hamadeh currently trails radical left Democrat Kris Mayes by just 510 votes, and there is expected to be a recount.  However, the Arizona election was an uncertifiable mess due to voters having their ballots stolen, not counted, or being prevented from voting altogether.  The Gateway Pundit reported on the serious issues in Maricopa County's General Election on November 8.  Due to the incompetence of Maricopa County and Katie Hobbs, tabulators were down, printers ran out of ink, and long, long lines kept Republican voters waiting to cast their ballots.  Republican voters were told to drop their ballots into a separate container called box 3 to be counted later.  Election experts and election workers later reported that these uncounted ballots were mixed with already counted ballots, leaving no way of knowing if all legal votes were counted!

Arizona AG Demands Maricopa Officials Answer For Reportedly Mixing Counted And Uncounted Ballots.  Arizona ballots that couldn't be counted due to broken machines were mingled in some locations with already tabulated ballots, according to the Elections Integrity Unit of Arizona's attorney general's office.  State officials listed numerous ways Maricopa County, Arizona, election officials failed to properly segregate, count, tabulate, tally, and transport ballots during the midterm 2022 elections, which likely resulted in significant disenfranchisement of Election Day voters.  In a letter sent to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office by Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright, the Elections Integrity Unit of Arizona's attorney general's office notified the county that they had "received hundreds of complaints since Election Day pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election" and as a result, are demanding Maricopa County election officials provide answers for the chaos, confusion, and mismanagement of the voting process in a report to be submitted on or before Nov. 28, when Maricopa must send its official canvass to the secretary of state for certification.

If Ray Epps shows up, just ignore everything he says.
Patriots In Arizona Plan Huge Protest In Front Of AZ Capitol This Weekend.  Patriots in Arizona demanding a redo of the 2022 general election have organized a protest near the Arizona Capitol this Friday at 9 am and through the weekend before counties canvass the results.  The protest will include a peaceful gathering and opportunities to hold signs and banners on highways across the state.  The Arizona election was an uncertifiable mess due to voters having their ballots stolen, not counted, or being prevented from voting altogether.  The Gateway Pundit reported on the serious issues in Maricopa County's General Election on November 8.  Due to the incompetence of Maricopa County and Katie Hobbs, tabulators were down, printers ran out of ink, and long, long lines kept Republican voters waiting to cast their ballots.

Arizona AG Opens Inquiry into Maricopa County Election Irregularities, Possible Legal Violations.  The Arizona attorney general's office has opened an inquiry into Maricopa County's handling of the mid-term elections, demanding a full report of well-publicized irregularities and warning there is evidence of "statutory violations."  The letter from Attorney General Mark Brnovich's election integrity unit marks a major escalation in the dispute over how voters were treated on Election Day in the state's largest county, where scores of ballot tabulators had problems because of printing problems.  The problems have delayed the declaration of a winner in the razor-thin state attorney general's race and led GOP gubernatorial candidate KariLake to question as premature the media's declaration that her opponent, Democrat Katie Hobbs, won that race.

Elections for dummies.  It is clear that Americans consider it very important to vote in order to be an upstanding member of society.  Less certain, though, is whether our voting system is on the up and up.  With each passing election, evidence mounts that the U.S. electoral process is flawed, and voters are not supposed to notice.  It's elections for dummies — but without one of those yellow guidebooks to explain it all.  A recent Pew Research Center survey finds that 69% of U.S. adults consider voting a civic duty.  Only 46% of eligible voters, however, actually bothered to cast a ballot in the 2022 midterms, according to statistics gathered by The Associated Press and the U.S. Elections Project.  As the world's oldest continuous democracy, the United States should be a natural leader in voter turnout.  It is not.  Rather, the U.S. ranks 31st among 50 nations surveyed — between Colombia and Greece — according to Pew.

Understanding Why This Arizona County Still Has Election Problems.  On Election Day, Cathi Herrod received calls and emails about problems in Arizona's Maricopa County about voting machines not accepting ballots, ballot tabulators being broken, and other questions regarding paper ballots.  "Voters are skittish in Maricopa County about election integrity," Herrod, president of the Center for Arizona Policy, a conservative think tank, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview Thursday.  "People wonder why it is that Florida is so quick to count votes and it takes Arizona days."  For the second consecutive election cycle, Maricopa County is in the national spotlight for problems during and after the voting.

Have the Democrats Destroyed Our Election System?  Do you get the feeling that you've been had?  That terrible sick-in-your-stomach sensation when scam artists laugh and you realize they've done it again?  When all of our hopes for the conservation of liberty have been destroyed by the same type of schemes that we all should have seen coming a mile away?  How does a party trying to destroy our constitutional republic for two years with poll after poll screaming that we are on the wrong track avoid a humiliating defeat at the ballot box?  How does a party steeped in the worst aspects of fascism and socialism in a collectivist witch's brew even have a chance after everyone has seen what they are at their core?  What did they offer?  More of the same only worse, and we were supposed to believe Gen Z and everyone else couldn't wait to get all their ballots in?

Alabama Withdraws From Democrat Operative-Controlled Voter Registration Database.  Alabama's Secretary of State-elect Wes Allen has announced that he will withdraw the state from the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC), a voter-roll management system with politically compromised ties.  "I made a promise that I would withdraw Alabama from ERIC and I am keeping that promise," Allen said in a statement.  "I have informed them, via certified letter, that upon my inauguration on January 16, 2023, Alabama will immediately and permanently cease to transmit any information regarding any citizen in the State of Alabama to their organization and that we will no longer participate in any aspect of the ERIC program."

Voters Aren't Choosing Dems, Dems Are Choosing Voters.  Democrats began by choosing a new electorate, one that was strategically defined by Senator Ted Kennedy and others as being more demographically friendly to its political machines.  Into the urban political machines that had begun to lose their old immigrant bases as the Irish, Italian and Jewish immigrants that had sustained them moved on to the suburbs, mass migration poured in a new electorate that would be more pliable and obedient to the party.  The combination of open borders and third world mass migration reshaped the political landscape.  Cities, always prominent, became the 800-pound gorillas of politics, turning entire states in their direction.  The nation's demographics changed as rapidly as its politics did.  But that was only the first step.  The second step, now well underway, was reshaping the structure of elections to allow Democrats to find the voters, instead of the voters finding them.

Arizona attorney general wants report on voting machine problems.  Arizona Republican Attorney General Mark Brnovich's office has demanded that Maricopa County officials provide a report on the voting machine problems that caused some delays in the battleground state during this month's midterm elections.  A letter dated Saturday by Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright calls for county officials to report by Nov. 28 on the specific problems related to the printers at each location as well on how poll workers were trained.

Has the GOP Learned Anything After the Midterms?  [Scroll down] Republicans focus on winning votes while Democrats concentrate on gathering ballots.  There are quasi-legal ballot maneuvers including ballot-harvesting, mass mailings of ballots weeks or months before the actual election, extended counting, ranked voting, and similar election procedures enacted with Republican support or minimal resistance.  Then there are seemingly illegal maneuvers, many outlined in Dinesh D'Souza's documentary, 2,000 Mules.  Funny how vote counting stopped on election night in swing districts, only to resume the next day with a winning Republican on election night replaced by a winning Democrat when the sun came up.  Or voting machines mysteriously malfunctioning on Election Day in high GOP turnout precincts.  For example, in this midterm, 48 percent of Maricopa County election centers suffered problems.  Or random vote count spikes always favoring the Democrat candidate.  Or phantom ballots and voters based on neglected voter rolls.  2022 was a repeat of 2020, with Republicans caught flat-footed once again, or else complicit in another "selection" rather than an "election."

[Suspicious activity] at the Maricopa County Dropboxes.  Watch as vehicle after vehicle pull up to these Maricopa County dropboxes and individuals drop off what seems like dozens of ballots.  Dropboxes are legal in Arizona but ballot harvesting is not.  You are allowed to drop off ballots for your family but many of these individuals seem to have freakishly large families.  Just before election day, The Justice Department stepped into an ongoing Arizona election lawsuit supporting a claim by the League of Women Voters of Arizona that monitoring ballot drop boxes can amount to illegal voter intimidation.  [Video clip]

Saving Arizona and Other States: 10 Proven Reforms for Fairer Elections.  Did someone say election day was a "great day for democracy"?  Maybe it was in states such as Florida, Tennessee, and Missouri.  They welcomed eligible in-person voters, also offered absentee paper ballots with proper safeguards, counted votes quickly, and reported totals on election night and the next day.  Election results in those states were not totally unpredictable.  Most reasonably corresponded to prior polling, midterm election patterns, and voter expectations.  But in other states such as Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania, it was a great day for compromising democracy.  They seemed to care more about collecting ballots than counting real votes or serving real voters, some of whom they turned away.  Based on 2020 "COVID" election changes in 17 states that favored absentee ballots over more secure in-person voting, these states cranked out endless paper ballots, dragged out counting for days, and reported results defying predictions.

Universal Suffrage in an Age of Rigged Elections.  Now, I believe that the elections, at least as far as I can tell, were rigged.  Whether or not there was any actual vote tampering or fraudulent counting, I of course cannot prove in a legal sense.  However, I cannot see why anyone thinks that politicians would not break the law in order to steal votes.  They already steal your money.  Why should we think they won't steal other things too?  In addition, the fact that the Democrats repeat the phrase "free and fair election" over and over and over again is, for me, almost a guarantee that the opposite is true.  I have about as much confidence in a politician saying, "free and fair election," as I do in a politician saying, "safe legal and rare" or "safe and effective."  Furthermore, given the dodgy nature of mail-in voting and the fact that people can vote without ID, I think I would have to be an idiot to think that a political opportunist would not take advantage of such a loophole.

GA SoS Raffensperger's War On Coffee County.  On April 7th, Georgia Secretary of State (SOS) Brad Raffenserger announced his office would investigate three counties for failing to complete mail-in ballot drop box transfer forms in recent Georgia elections.  The forms are required to be filled out to document transfers of mail-in ballots picked up from locations where drop boxes may have been installed throughout a county.  One of those counties that Raffensperger announced he would investigate is Coffee County.  The problem with the announcement is that if there is anyone in the SOS office who wanted the truth they only needed to make one phone call to know there is nothing to investigate.  Coffee County did not place any drop boxes in remote locations.  The only drop box was located at the county elections office.  County Elections offices have never been required to fill out forms if they receive mail-in ballots at the office.  So, what was the real motive behind this obvious publicity stunt and latest example of disinformation emanating from the SOS office?

Maricopa County: Eyewitness Accounts Suggest Election May Be Uncertifiable.  The Maricopa County election may be uncertifiable if the accounts of election workers at the polls are true.  Multiple Arizona poll workers have come forward, sharing documentation of their election day observations with UncoverDC. These poll workers — an election judge, three clerks, and an election marshal — worked at the same voting center all day on election day.  None of these poll workers knew each other prior to working on Election Day.  There were a total of 1 inspector, 2 judges, 1 marshal, and 7 clerks at this location. [...] Cynthia Schlesinger was the Marshal at the voting center.  She noted many of the issues described by Karla Sweet.  However, as Marshal, one of her duties was to assist with curbside duties.  She states that the county election workers — Mark McCall and Yamille Martinez — "[did] this against all rules."  As a result of McCall's presence outside, the poll workers had to repeatedly go outside to retrieve him when they needed assistance.  Schlesinger reports she was "supposed to be spoiling the ballots as needed, but Mark gave this job to his cohort Yamille [Martinez]."  Schlesinger also noted that her colleagues, Pam and Sue, counted the ballots, noting a discrepancy from Monday.  Schlesinger writes:  "Mark said there was 767 ballot paper in the box, there should have been [many fewer] as we had more than 30 voters and test prints.  When we brought this to his attention his response was 'oh well, they can fire me'."  Schlesinger also states that she and the others were not sworn in according to the rules but were merely "signed in."  Additionally, she said the mail-in ballots were "left in the collector box overnight when they should have been picked up."

Breaking: Ariz.  AG Takes Action - Ballots Reported in Black Duffle Bags - Officials Broke Election Laws.  Arizona Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright — with the Elections Integrity Unit — wrote a letter to the Maricopa County officials Saturday demanding an accounting for the widespread ballot tabulation and ballot printer problems seen during the general election on Nov. 8.  Among the most troubling issues raised in the letter directed to Thomas Liddy with the Maricopa County Attorney's Office was the apparent co-mingling of ballots in black duffle bags in at least one polling location, which were successfully run through the on-site tabulators with those put in "Door 3" to be sent to the Election Department's downtown Phoenix tabulation center because they could not be read. [...] Wright recounted that based on information provided by the county at least 60 polling locations' ballot on-demand printers were configured improperly, leading to the inability of the tabulators to read the ballots.  Ballots are printed on demand because voters are able to check in at any location in Maricopa County, which includes multiple congressional, state and local districts.

48 Percent of Maricopa County, Arizona Election Centers Had Ballot Processing Malfunctions on Election Day.  News from Rasmussen Reports shows that 48 percent of election centers in Maricopa County featured significant malfunctions on election day, with none of those problems being reported from computers during the early voting period.  [Tweet]  Some of the abnormalities that happened on election day in Arizona can be seen here:  [Tweets]  There have been multiple whistleblowers who have come forward to attest to the fraud that happened in the elections in Arizona:  [More tweets]

Georgia county election officials reverse course after finding more votes.  Election officials in an Atlanta-area city were left with egg dripping from their faces when they were forced to reverse results in a city council race after the results had been certified due to a memory card with additional votes being discovered, not exactly something that bolsters voter confidence with the critical Senate runoff between Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock only weeks away.

The Editor says...
[#1] The election was eleven days ago.  Why weren't all the "memory card" devices accounted for within a few hours of the polls closing?  [#2] When votes are "found" and the outcome of the election changes after more than a week, the entire system reeks of corruption.  Let the polygraph tests begin!

Ohio Sees a Red Wave Amid Secretary of State's Election Integrity Measures.  As vote counting continued in the Arizona gubernatorial and Senate races days after Nov. 8, Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose shared his outspoken opinion about the subject on Twitter.  "Dear Arizona, need some advice on how to run an election the right way?" said LaRose, a Republican who was elected to another term.  "Your process is obviously not working."  LaRose praised his office's emphasis on election integrity and the commitment of county election boards to produce timely reports on races.  "Election night results were reported on election night, and that is something Ohioans expect," LaRose told Fox News last week.

Georgia judge hands Warnock, Georgia Democrats a victory on early voting rules.  Fulton County Judge Thomas A. Cox handed a legal victory to Georgia Democrats and Raphael Warnock's campaign on Friday.  The Georgia Secretary of State cannot prohibit counties from voting on the Saturday after Thanksgiving as is currently stated in Georgia election law.  The Democrat Party of Georgia sued Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger's office to allow early voting on Nov. 26, the only Saturday in the early voting period for the run-off race between incumbent Democrat Senator Warnock and Hershel Walker, his Republican challenger.  Georgia election law reforms put into effect by state legislation shortened early voting in a run-off election to a week.

Mysteriously Discarded Ballots That Were Found On A Highway Have Been Verified And Most Of Them Will Be Included In The Election Results.  The United States Postal Service and the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters have launched an investigation to determine how a dozen or more Santa Clara County ballots wound up in a ravine in the Santa Cruz mountains, according to communications officer Michael Borja of the registrar's office.  As for how the ballots ended up on side of the highway, it's still a mystery.  On Nov. 11, a member of the public reported that ballots had been found near Hwy 17 along with other mail and parcels.  The ROV says it appears that the ballots had been returned by mail and went missing while in possession of the USPS.  The ballots were discovered in a pile of other mail, discarded in the woods near Sugarloaf Road off Highway 17, Borja said.

The appearance of impropriety.  Unfortunately, our election rules are riddled with appearances of impropriety.  Consider voter ID.  Most advanced countries require ID to vote.  Under our Constitution the right to vote for federal elections is limited to U.S. citizens of legal age (18).  State laws cannot change this.  The only way to verify these two criteria is with a government-issued ID.  There's a lot of bluster about voter ID laws being unfair or racist, but this is spurious because no one expresses outrage for the long list of other activities that require ID:  bank account, welfare, Social Security, job, airline travel, marriage, cell phone, hotel, etc.  In fact, suggesting that some groups are incapable of obtaining ID on their own could itself be construed as racist. [...] The solution is simple:  pass a federal voter ID law and offer free IDs to every U.S. citizen before the next election.  The same goes for voting by mail.  If people are allowed to vote in the privacy of their own homes, how do we know if they are the ones who voted or made the choices?

The 2022 Steal - Part 1.  The 2022 midterms were meant entirely, entirely, to weaken MAGA, to weaken populism world-wide, because if there had been a red wave, populists the world over would have taken heart and swept the polls.  The polls are, in every country, cheated.  The WEF, with the most brilliant (and unethical) people at their command have figured out how.  And we're finally figuring it out too.  Brazil is on the streets, demanding the election be redone.  Mexico is on the streets, refusing mail in ballots, because they know it's a cheat.  Berlin has decided to repeat their elections.  Why?  Weaponized incompetence, one of the main methodologies, as I will describe.  November 7 was a WEF take-over, just like the installation of Rishi Sunak in Britain.  Not even the conservative caucus wanted Sunak, much less the voters.  Lula in Brazil, ditto — Trudeau, Macron, that weird girl in New Zealand — same.  Stolen, manipulated, cheated.  Nor was November 7 just the Democrats.  It was the Uniparty, RINOs who want their power back, their license to loot — Romney, Lindsay Graham, Karl Rove and the Bushies.  They are so transparent, they don't even try to hide.  They know they stole, they know we know, but they don't care.  They don't care because they are desperate.  What happened in Florida would have happened in state after state after state, if they hadn't cheated.

Lazy Voters Enable Democratic Fraud.  First, let's take a step back and lay down some background info: Anyone with any semblance of either lucid observational powers or intellectual honesty/courage knows that Joe Biden is not the president.  He never has been.  Biden has been nothing more than a figurehead, a placeholder, ever since the astonishing fraud of the 2020 election was perpetrated upon the American electorate.  The Democrats successfully orchestrated their deception and left the naïve Republicans twiddling their thumbs and crying foul.  No amount of outright lying from the liberal media can even remotely explain how Republican poll watchers were forced out of several tabulation areas, the filmed evidence of Democratic mules stuffing ballot boxes late at night, how so many precincts had over 100% voter participation, how thousands of new ballots mysteriously appeared out of nowhere, always to the Democrats' advantage, and how state voting laws and deadlines were illegally changed, again, always to the Democrats' advantage.  None of this has been explained, much less "debunked," to use the liberal media's favorite word.  The fraud was simply ignored and swept under the rug, and if you bring up any logical counterarguments, protected by the 1st Amendment, you're somehow a threat to national security.

What Happened?  As of this writing, most states have counted their 2022 election ballots.  California, being California, continues to turtle toward its final vote tally.  About 2 million ballots remain to be counted there.  We nevertheless have a rough idea of how things are poised to shake out. [...] Obviously, this is not the result that Republicans had hoped for.  What makes it all the stranger is that it looks like Republicans will notch a significant victory in the popular vote.  As of this writing, they've received 51.0% of the vote to Democrats' 47.1%. [...] As things stand, we are seeing roughly a 7-point swing from 2020, when Democrats won the popular vote by a 50.8% to 47.7% margin.  Had you showed any major analyst these results, along with exit poll findings that Biden would be at 44% job approval, no one would have expected this outcome.  Overall, it's a strange election.

Arizona's numbers don't add up.  [Scroll down] In other words, it would appear that approximately 163,000 more votes were cast for Republicans than for Democrats.  Now compare that number to the up-ballot numbers, which indicate that about 98,000 more votes were cast for the Democrat candidates than for the Republican candidates.  The conclusion would be that about 68,000 voters who preferred the Republican for Congress voted Democrat for governor, senator, A.G., and secretary of state.  Additionally, the numbers indicate that 150,000 more people voted for all nine Republican candidates than voted for the four statewide offices under consideration for this exercise.  Both of those facts defy logic.  When we consider the travails of Election Day experienced by many voters, the unacceptably high numbers of equipment issues, and the fact that the Democrat secretary of state refused to recuse herself from the election tabulation, one has to believe that there were serious issues regarding the fairness of the election.

Election Fraud 2.0! O.K., So What Are You Gonna Do About It?  Only in politics could 2022 players be surprised by the "innovation" of a mail-in ballot-led strategy exactly the same as was used in 2020. [...] The next morning, I had to present the voter roll phantoms to its Secretary of State, via a Zoom call.  I had two hours to find at-scale phantom voters in one of the reddest states and present them to a group of 20 lawyers after my first cup of coffee the following morning.  It wasn't hard.  Voters registered in prison.  People voting from homeless shelters — for 20 years.  (Homeless shelters do not have 20-year residents, don't email me about this).  Active voters in a frat house who were 106 years old, and a voter who was 1,900 years old who registered to vote, just before the 2020 election.  The response from this Republican secretary of state was complete denial.  No matter how crazy the phantom's address was — like a jail — he refused to concede there was any phantom inhabitation of his state's voter rolls.  We now run about 20 states and they are all like this.  Phantom voter fraud is the heart and soul of ballot-harvesting election-stealing.  If we eliminate phantom voter fraud, people will still screw with machines, Maricopa County will make sure its voting machines do not work in Republican precincts, but the fake-ballot harvesting at scale will end.  It's where the big votes are!  Election fraud is an industry.  It is core to the fabric of both Democrat and Republican establishments.

No Way to Win?  Then Fix the Machine!  Currently, 28 states are governed by Republicans who could enact new laws clearing the rolls of ineligible voters if they have the red legislature to support such changes.  Unfortunately, Congress also has the power to overturn state laws so it would be a must for the GOP to control Congress.  But even if a Democrat Senate tried to undo that attempt, conservatives have to pull out all stops and demand why.  Why would they want ineligible foreign votes to decide how this country is run?  Why would they think that insisting voters show IDs would be voter suppression when everyone who receives government checks has to have proper government issued ID?  What we have now is pretty much what we used to call a "banana republic' in the sense that elections there were always a slam dunk for the dictator in charge because they were rigged.  The Deep State and the left have built a massive voting machine designed to favor their candidate and it has been in place for years.

How the Game is Fixed.  Imagine a Super Bowl where the Reds were ahead 27-25 with a minute to go.  All of a sudden, the power went out in the entire stadium.  When the lights came on after a couple minutes of chaos, fans noticed the scoreboard showed 27-29.  Anyone witnessing such an event would be beyond outraged. [...] So why is it that multiple unusual occurrences in a nationwide election are ignored and voters are expected to just accept the results they are given?  In Dallas, Texas there are reports of hundreds of votes being added at poll closing time.  A Democrat in New Hampshire was awarded 1,106 votes in a town with about 700 people.  Why is Maricopa County, Arizona the only place in the country where there is no chain of custody for mail-in ballots?  In the same county an elections clerk claimed that uncounted "Slot 3" ballots were mixed in with already counted ballots.  In Maryland there were 1,000 votes left to count in a House race, but overnight 10,000 votes were added, leading to a Democrat victory.  In Santa Clara, California, a bag of mail-in ballots was found deep in a ravine.

PA Gov. Elect Josh Shapiro Arrests Democratic Consultant For 'Wide Scale' Ballot Fraud.  Democratic Pennsylvania Governor-elect Josh Shapiro charged a former campaign consultant Wednesday with "wide scale" voter fraud, according to authorities.  Philadelphia political consultant Rasheen Crews was arrested Wednesday and charged with forging signatures on nomination petitions so that he could get his Democratic clients on the ballot during the 2019 primary races in the city, Shapiro's office announced.  "In advance of the 2023 municipal elections, this arrest is an important reminder that interfering with the integrity of our elections is a serious crime," Shapiro said in a statement.

Just Call It What It Is: Massive Election Fraud.  Nothing works in America 2022:  there's inflation through the roof, expensive food, expensive energy/gas, war in the Ukraine with the potential to go nuclear, debt through the roof, everything sucks basically.  Yet, the Democrats managed to pretty much remain in power after the midterms.  The Senate is 100% in blue hands and keep in mind that Republicans always betray their voters and join Democrats when it's something big that needs to pass through the House.  DEMs never do that by the way.

Early-Vote Malignancy Metastasized in Midterm Elections.  The mad rush toward early voting accelerated thanks to another disease:  COVID-19.  Like so many things wrong in America today, COVID lurks just beneath the surface.  Because voting in person was "too dangerous," opportunistic Democrat lawyers sued like ambulance chasers in 2020 to widen and deepen early voting beyond its earlier, lower profile.  This year, with COVID in the rear-view mirror, 2020's "emergency" measure has become the new normal.  The Democrats' ever-leftward ratchet mechanism always works this way.  Yesterday's temporary concession becomes tomorrow's permanent civil right.  What [...] is the hurry to cast ballots before seeing the complete picture that voters face each federally defined Election Day?

Philly Dem Consultant Accused of Faking 1,000 Signatures.  As bad as Arizona may be, there's a reason that Philly still leads the nation in fraud in contested statewide elections.  (I'm not going to bother mentioning New York or Los Angeles, where Karen Bass was predictably appointed mayor by way of a whole lot of late-arriving ballots for the second time.)  What's remarkable is not that things like this happen in Philly, but how unremarkable they are. [...] What's striking about these stories is the sheer level of chutzpah, the brazenness of the corruption in question.  That's a fundamental characteristic of the kind of hard-core corruption in the urban Dem political machine.

Google attempts to deter 'election fraud' searches with suggestions like 'ejection fraction'.  Google appears to be attempting to deter searches on "election fraud" by using auto-fill suggestions unrelated to elections.  Upon typing "election fr" or "election "fra" into Google's search engine, instead of auto-suggesting phrases that begin with "election," as would be typical, Google primarily suggests variations of "ejection fraction."

Another Brick in the Blue Wall of Fraud.  There is an international consensus that secure, trustworthy elections means strict voter ID requirements and in-person voting rather than drop boxes or vote-by-mail.  In response to the chaos of the 2020 election, in which many Detroit precinct totals simply didn't add up, the Michigan legislature passed an effective voter ID law, which Governor Gretchen Whitmer vetoed.  To prevent any threat of honest elections in Michigan's future, Michigan Democrats came up Proposal 2, amending Michigan's Constitution to mandate drop boxes, allow unlimited third-party funding of ballot harvesting, prohibit election audits except as conducted under the supervision of the secretary of state, and ban effective voter ID laws.  Drop boxes and ballot harvesting means that canvassers can cajole, bribe, or scare you into voting their way and then drop off the ballot anonymously.  The prohibition on legislative or independent election audits means that there is no effective check on any fraud scheme to which the secretary of state is a party.  The ban on effective voter ID laws means that all anybody has to do to vote as somebody else is to sign in as them at the polling place.

The Unpopular Cure for Our Electoral Woes.  Here we are, a week after the 2022 elections, and we are still in the fog of ballot-counting.  A nation who put a man on the moon a half-century ago somehow cannot tally the votes of the people in a day.  Read into that whatever you wish.  Over at the Conservative Treehouse, site owner Sundance provides an excellent article distinguishing the difference between ballots and votes.  Votes are the expressed intention of a voter for a particular government leader.  Ballots are filled out pieces of paper that express the choice of a particular leader.  Both are counted for an election.  In the current system, ballots are gathered or harvested either, legally or illegally, and submitted.  Given the lack of prosecution, the legality of it apparently does not matter.  Votes represent the will of the people; ballots may or may not.  This disenfranchising process could not happen if one political party vehemently opposed it.

Harris County DA Kim Ogg launches 2022 election investigation, asks Texas Rangers to assist.  Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg has opened an investigation into possible criminal conduct in the county's administration of last week's midterm election, when some polling places opened late and others ran out of ballot paper, among other issues.  She also has asked state authorities to assist with the probe.  Ogg confirmed the investigation, first reported by the New York Times, in a Wednesday statement to Houston Public Media.  She made her request for assistance in a M0nday email to the Texas Rangers, saying her office had received a referral from the Texas Secretary of State's Office about "alleged irregularities" that "potentially may include criminal conduct" in Harris County, according to the Times.

Two Maricopa election officials are anything but neutral.  One of the hardest fought 2024 races was that for Arizona governor.  On the one hand, there was Katie Hobbs, a bovine candidate who campaigned as Joe Biden did: infrequently and incoherently.  It's almost as if both knew that they'd win no matter what.  On the other side was Kari Lake, one of the most dynamic candidates to appear on the American scene in years (or decades).  Now, thanks to Maricopa County, Hobbs has been declared the winner, and people have questions — especially because it's been revealed two of the campaign officials are anti-MAGA activists. [...] The Post Millennial did some digging and found something interesting about two Maricopa County election officials who have the all-important job of making sure all legitimate votes get counted, and that all illegitimate votes do not.

Within Minutes of Arizona Gov Election Call, Twitter, DHS and Big Tech Begin Blocking Discussion of Difference Between "Ballots and Votes".  I'm going to skip noting that Elon Musk Twitter is essentially unchanged, regarding the relationship between Twitter, the Dept of Homeland Security and the disinformation police, as many keep saying Musk Twitter has not had time to reformat.  That said, five days after our post-election review of the difference between ballots and votes, and within minutes of the controversial Arizona governor contest being announced by DHS media outlets, suddenly any discussion about "Ballots -vs- Votes" is considered a risk to democracy.  The need for control is a reaction to fear.  Twitter specifically, and Big Tech writ large, has now placed a warning on the CTH article where we draw attention to the general difference between ballots and votes.  The timing of the intervention, as related to the content discussed, is transparent.  Sunlight is a great disinfectant and must be controlled at all costs.

Warnock, DSCC Sue To Allow For Extra Day Of Early Voting In Georgia Senate Runoff.  Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock of Georgia, along with party allies, have sued the state to allow for an extra day of early voting before the U.S. Senate runoff election on Dec. 6.  Warnock, joined by the Democratic Party of Georgia and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, has filed a complaint for an injunction in the Fulton County Superior Court, seeking to force Georgia to allow early voting on Saturday, Nov. 26.  Early voting in the race is scheduled to begin on Monday, Nov. 28 and run until Friday, Nov. 29, the mandatory five days required by state law.  Georgia elections law prohibits early voting on a Saturday if a holiday falls within two days of it.

Republican Leaders Have A Choice: Roll Back Early Voting And Mail-In Ballots Or Learn To Take Advantage Of Them.  Republicans apparently learned very little from the 2020 election which turned voting and vote counting into a chaotic multi-week affair, all to the great advantage of Democrats.  After finding their party blown out of the water by early votes and mail-in ballots, both vastly expanded to accommodate the pandemic hysteria, elected GOP leaders seem to have thought to themselves, "Well, better luck next time!"  And here we are.  In an election year that should have seen major gains for Republicans across the board, the party failed to take the Senate, could still (a week after Election Day) fail to secure the House, and is now on life support for the governorship in Arizona.  There isn't just one reason for the shortcomings but none are more important than the party's neglect in adapting to our new jungle of an election process.  For the past two years, every Republican should have been either attempting to beat back the flood of "no excuse" mail-in ballots saturating swing states, or building up a party network that could adapt to it.  There were some efforts to manage the mail-in voting problem in Arizona and Georgia but otherwise the party said its prayers and hoped for the best heading into the midterms.

Maricopa County Election Judge Speaks Out.  No matter what the results of the midterm elections are in Arizona, Maricopa County is yet again at the center of controversy, and for a good reason.  Election judge Michele Swinick has come forward to report what she experienced in Maricopa County on Election Day.  She worked Election Day as a judge at the Islamic Voting Center in Scottsdale, AZ.  She reports that the center is heavily Republican, with "no party" designated voters as the second most populous demographic, followed by very few democrat voters, evidenced by the fact that she checked in very few of them on Election Day.  She reports she spent the entire day checking in voters.  Swinick says that the tabulators all worked "perfectly" during the test the night before the election.  The problem with scanning began immediately with the first ballots.  Voters scanned their ballots between 4 and 12 times with very minimal success.  Poll workers estimated about 1 in 10 ballots were being read for the first three hours of voting.  Voters were given options to either spoil their ballots and try again or drop them into a different section called "Door 3."  As per Swinick, their inspector had to empty the ballots from "Door 3" three times throughout the early afternoon because of the volume of ballots.

Election Night Follies.  Few candidates are willing to come forward to so much as question the "irregularities" taking place in their districts.  Or even state the obvious:  We now have an electoral system compromised by the most pregnable and vulnerable aspect of the voting process:  "mail-in ballots."  This has been regarded as the weakest link in the chain to an honest and fair election outcome.  Democrats are truly accomplished at silencing any concerns conservatives may entertain about the outcome of today's voting systems (i.e. multiple extensions and 10,000,000 mail-in ballots). [...] Confusion was rife on the night of the election — especially in toss-up candidacy regions where a red wave was predicted.  That confusion includes headlines involving repeated "programming glitches" in Mercer, NJ.  My personal favorite — in terms of appreciating the absurdities in life — is the breakdown of counting votes in Dallas, TX.  Miraculously "poll pads caught adding hundreds of voters in real time as poll is being closed."  That means hundreds of votes — jumping from 1,080 to 1,139 to finally 1,259 — managed to appear on a computer screen without a poll worker entering the data.  We're supposed to believe that the data entered itself.  That brings to mind a Democrat registered voter arrested in Colorado for inserting an unauthorized USB thumb drive into a voting machine, according to the Associated Press.

Patriots in Arizona Call for a New Legitimate Midterm Election on December 6.  The Arizona election is a total mess.  It's full of corruption in almost every area.  It is uncertifiable as a result.  A new free and fair election is demanded.  Secretary of State Katie Hobbs should have recused herself due to her running for governor in this election but her conflict of interest was ignored.  The same people involved in the uncertifiable 2020 Election were also involved in this election.  They too should have been removed.  The systems are the same systems with still unanswered questions from the 2020 Election.  As a result a group of citizens in Arizona released a statement last night calling for a new election.  They request that this election in the state be held on December 6.

Here's what Kari Lake said about the last ballot dump just before it dropped and put Hobbs ahead.  The Associated Press called the Arizona gubernatorial race for Democrat Katie Hobbs at 9:30 pm Monday night.  Hobbs, who stared down calls to recuse herself from overseeing her own election as Arizona's secretary of state, is expected to certify her own election near the end of the month.  Hobbs' opponent, Kari Lake, who had been widely expected to win, may not go quietly into the night.  Shortly before the "vote dump" that preceded the call, Lake was on Fox News's "Jesse Watters Primetime."  [Video clip]  "What's going to happen when we hear about this vote dump?" asked Watters.  "I don't know... We think we should be in good shape," she said, the former confidence in her tone replaced by transparent chagrin.  She complained that in Maricopa County there were still 94,000 uncounted votes out of 158,000 total ballots that were presumably in the vote dump.

Nevada County Confirms Livestream Video Of Vote-Count Areas Went Dark For 8 Hours, Responds To Criticism.  County officials in Nevada over the weekend confirmed that cameras live-streaming vote-counting areas on Wednesday night and Thursday morning went dark for a total of eight hours.  "We know that our election livestream cameras went dark overnight.  We investigated what happened and how to prevent it happening again," Washoe County's Twitter account posted Thursday afternoon.  Unsurprisingly, the tweet went viral, racking up thousands of reactions, which included questions concerning election integrity.

Texas Gov. Abbott calls for investigation into Harris County's Election Day problems.  Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called for an investigation into Harris County's elections after several polling places failed to open on time and ran out of paper ballots on Election Day last week.  "The allegations of election improprieties in our state's largest county may result from anything ranging from malfeasance to blatant criminal conduct," Abbott said in a statement.  "Voters in Harris County deserve to know what happened.  Integrity in the election process is essential.  To achieve that standard, a thorough investigation is warranted."

About "Deniers".  It all started with Holocaust deniers.  That phrase has a clear meaning:  it refers to someone who denies that the Holocaust took place.  But liberals saw potential in the locution, an opportunity to disqualify their opponents without actually making an argument.  Thus, they started labeling people as "climate deniers." [...] Liberals must have thought that strategy worked, because now we have "election deniers."  Again, one asks, what is an election denier?  Someone who denies that we have elections?  No.  An election denier is anyone who worries that our elections might not be entirely on the up-and-up.  Someone other than a Democrat, of course. [...] Poll after poll has shown that Americans of both parties want honest elections.  Something like 70% to 75% of Americans want voter ID requirements, which the Democrats have desperately tried to make illegal.

We're getting played when it comes to who's the real 2022 winner.  Oh, and here's what I believe is the most significant factor:  mail-in ballots.  In states with mail-in ballots, the Secretary of State mails ballots to every person on the registrar's list.  It's irrelevant that many have moved, are dead, or are manifestly fraudulent.  At apartment buildings, you may see dozens of ballots sitting in piles in the lobby, addressed to people who long since moved away.  The ballots then get mailed back in again.  The Secretary of State has no idea who filled out the ballots or popped them in the mailbox.  He or she doesn't care that 1,000 are returned from the same 30-unit apartment building or temporary homeless shelter.  The ballots are then taken from their envelopes, effectively removing all identification, and "counted."  This is a process without any brakes on fraud.  And if the current crop of ballots doesn't provide a victory for the Democrats, it's perfectly easy to slip in a few more ballots that are untethered to a real person to tip the "correct" candidate into the winning pile.

America's Great Political Unraveling.  What's worse — how much of a joke America's "elections" are or the contempt with which election officials treat voters who have the nerve to demand answers on election night?  Days of mail-in ballot counting have turned Republican Senate leads into Democrat Senate victories, while control of the House is still up for grabs; but the praetorian news pundits who defend the Deep State's virtue as if they were protecting the disputed honor of a blushing bride still find it more appalling that voters could question the legitimacy of America's elections than the reality that vote-counters have turned elections into long-term, unbelievable affairs.  It takes an awful long time to track down all those rascally elusive ballots temporarily lost in the mail.  Perhaps any unused leftovers can just be scooped up and used again for the Democrats in two years — whatever might move this whole farce along more quickly in the future.  This debauched civic ritual has become so dirty that there's not enough soap to wash off the stench.  In states where voter identification rules are somewhat enforced and mail-in and absentee ballots are reserved for exceptional cases, Republicans won overwhelmingly.  In states where anonymous, unsecured mail-in ballots are the new norm, Republicans got trounced.

Dozens of Arizona Republican Voters Describe How Ballots Were Not Counted, Ballots Were Tossed in a Box, and People Were Not Allowed in to Vote.  On Tuesday morning, The Gateway Pundit reported that when polls opened in Maricopa County at 6 am on Election Day, voters were told that the tabulators were not working.  This was happening across Maricopa County and resulted in long lines and voters being told to go to another location to vote.  Katie Hobbs is the current Secretary of State in charge of elections.  Instead of tabulating their ballot directly, voters were also told to put their ballot into a box under the tabulator so that their ballot may be tabulated at a later time downtown.  Voters were told to just drop their ballot into the open door seen below.  [Photo]  This took place at 30% of the precincts in Maricopa County on Election Day.

The Modern Electioneering Process of "Ballot Submission Assistance" is Taking Center Stage.  If CTH had a small part in helping people to reset their reference points around modern electioneering, well, that's a good thing.  The difference between "ballots" and "votes" is previously explained and absolutely critical to understand before moving forward.  Thankfully a large percentage of conservatives, intellectually honest independents and even some establishment republican donors have read our research and are now starting to have the 'votes' vs 'ballots' conversation.  That understanding is critical, because any conversation that does not accurately identify and accept the problem is futile.

America's Fourth World Election System Is A Global Embarrassment.  The whole world is laughing.  "US election results: When will we know who won?" the BBC wondered.  AZCentral.com columnist Jon Gabriel wrote: "Friends in Hungary and Brazil asked how their entire nations can count votes in a few hours, while it takes Arizona a week or longer." [...] Mechanical breakdowns, baffling "ballot dumps," and inexplicable pauses in tabulation have buried the Arizona and Nevada senatorial and gubernatorial results in sand.  Alaska has soiled itself with a new, needless and odious rank-choice-voting process.  Rather than Tuesday's top vote-getter winning the Senate seat, Republicans Lisa Murkowski, Kelly Tshibaka, Buzz Kelley, and Democrat Patricia Chesboro are mired in a glacial redistribution of each losing candidate's votes to those ranked higher.  This ballot buffoonery could continue for weeks.  In the U.S. House, 23 seats remain uncalled.  Republicans have yet to secure their expected slim majority, thanks to dilatory vote counts and mail-in ballots that land more slowly than falling autumn leaves.  Who will be the next mayor of Los Angeles?  At this writing, 64 hours after polls closed, nobody knows.  Some 900,000 ballots await tabulation!  In 10 California congressional contests, only around half of the ballots have been counted, per Politico.  In the Sixth District, only 52% of ballots have been tabulated!

The Red Tsunami Was Stopped by Massive, Widespread, Ongoing Voter Fraud.  It appears Democrats are going to not only retain control of the Senate, but may pick up a seat and potentially have the power to take out the filibuster.  The House, which was all but assured for Republican majorities for weeks before the election, appears to be heading toward giving razor-thin control to the GOP... and it still has a chance of remaining in Democrats' hands.  The red tsunami didn't materialize.  Or, to be more accurate, it was stolen.  That seems to be hard for many to accept as even some of the most outspoken conservative and alternative news outlets following the 2020 theft have gone silent on 2022.  They're blaming everything other than voter fraud for some reason.  I've seen far too few outside of The Gateway Pundit, Wayne Allyn Root, and a few others in media who are discussing in public what seems to be blatantly clear, at least to me. [...] I fought and continue to fight for the truth about the 2020 election to come out and I'm even more certain that 2022 was stolen.  Yet, it appears those of us who believe that are a very tiny minority. [...] We are already being told to "move on" and the votes haven't even been fully counted yet.  This is worse than the 2020 steal because it affected dozens of states, not just 7 or 8 swing states.

Maricopa County Election Judge Believes the Machines Were Programmed to Reject Ballots on Election Day.  Michele Swinick was an election judge in Maricopa County on election day last week.  Following the election Michele stepped forward to discuss what she experienced in Maricopa County on Election Day.  Michele worked at a center in a heavily Republican district.  According to Michele, the tabulators worked perfectly well the night before the election.  Then on Election Day they quit working.  Only 1 in 10 ballots were accepted through the tabulators.  The officials were told to put the defective ballots into a different section called "Door 3."  Michele believes this was all planned.  The election officials knew that republicans were going to come out in force on election day as they did in the primary.  This was a planned operation.

This wasnt an election.  On Election Day 2020, we went to bed with Trump as the obvious victor — he had to win only one of the several states still in play.  We woke up with Trump as the likely loser.  I had a feeling we'd been cheated.  Of course it was only a feeling, but I noticed it was shared by a surprising number of people in "deep blue" Connecticut:  Enthusiasm for Trump 2020 had run higher than for any presidential candidate people could remember.  Higher than it had for Obama the first time around.  And it was all just a mirage?  I was — still am — a full-stack software developer.  I got a call from a voter integrity nonprofit who'd been in business long before I'd considered voter fraud a serious problem.  They asked me to put together an emergency team to analyze the 2020 election results.  My team focused on statistical analyses — studies of the very unlikely.  Trying to find explanations for why certain late-reporting precincts were three standard deviations from their neighbors (think 1-in-1,000 shot) in areas like ballot-splitting.  We found state databases where votes that had already been counted were subsequently deleted, or where thousands of mail-in ballots were received back by the government before they'd even been mailed out (Pennsylvania).

How Wisconsin Streetfighters Disrupted a Democrat Ballot-Gathering System.  When Election Day became Election Month, mail-in ballots replaced in-person voters, and the electoral world changed forever.  It is not changing back.  Democrats, expert in anything government-related, drove states to change laws, increase voting days, loosen voter standards.  Republican leadership dozed.  Democrats, leftist non-governmental organizations, Big Tech invented every conceivable way to manipulate the ballot process:  collect ballots, drop into streetside bins, fill them out if the voter doesn't.  That is a ballot-gathering strategy.  It works! Republicans remained stuck in the same "voter strategy" for the last decade: yard signs, fundraising, obscure websites, TV ads.  The raw material of the ballot-gathering strategy is the phantom voter or address.  Every ballot needs to tie to someone — even if only a name on a list.

When Election Day Lasts For A Month.  We don't know how many races, if any, the Democrats have stolen or are stealing in this year's midterm elections.  But they have a reputation for fixing elections.  Think of 1960 and Mayor Richard Daley's Chicago machine and John Kennedy's tight win over Richard Nixon.  Historian and Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson biographer Robert Dallek, believed that Daley "probably stole Illinois from Nixon."  Start with that history, then add to it the fact that Democrats are thoroughly convinced of the righteousness of their policy positions, blend in their taste for exercising raw political power, and the dish that's produced is poisonous to fair elections.  What we do know for sure is that Democrats were part of the rancid cabal (not our word) that rigged the 2020 election for Democrat Joe Biden.  Time magazine reported about this "conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes," "an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans," a confederation of schemers "working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information."

About the GOP Winning That Popular Vote in the House Races.  I've seen a lot of rationales being tossed around for why the Republicans didn't win more despite what all the polls and data points suggested.  I must confess, I'm not particularly satisfied with any of the answers I've seen.  Yes, could some candidates have been better?  No doubt.  But Democrats got John Fetterman in and even voted for a dead man.  So let's not even pretend the quality of the candidate or even being alive truly matters.  If you voted in Fetterman, it's all based on wanting power for your party, no matter what.

How Did Maggie Hassan Get 1100 Votes in NH Town With a Population Under 700?  We've got something for you if you're looking for irregularities in your local elections.  Columbia, New Hampshire.  It's way up north.  A tiny little town that, according to the 2020 US Census, had 695 residents.  But according to the Secretary of State, Maggie Hassan received 1,106 votes from the same town.  The State Website reports Columbia, NH, had 735 residents in 2019.  Columbia, NH's website says the population in 2010 was 798.  Wikipedia cites a decline based on the 2020 census to 695.  How were over 1300 votes cast in a town with a population under 700 at least and under 800 at best?  Someone up there might want to request the same-day registration list.  Your town doubled in size overnight.

Arizona on my Mind.  Election Day is increasingly looking like election month, and frankly, unless state residents under our federal system get control of this, I see no end to it.  In the worst cases, ballots are emailed to everyone who has ever been registered to vote whether or not they've died or moved away, faulty ballot printing results in valid ballots being tossed, equipment failures misregister votes, ballot drop boxes are left unmonitored, and so on — all of which contribute to an atmosphere in which corruption flourishes.  The more this happens, the more voters believe they cannot vote themselves out of policies and politicians with which they disagree.  That is not an insignificant problem.  Arizona once again leads in sloppy election handling.  One can blame incompetence, but as these sloppy procedures seem to always favor the Left, there's reason for suspicion.

Here's Where the House Race Stands With Yet Another GOP Flip.  It has seemed that they're slow-walking the calls for the outstanding races in the House, even when some of them are separated by more than a couple of points.  It's five days after the election and we still don't know the results for control of the House.  I last updated this two days ago.  But if there's anything that needs to be addressed going forward, it's this concept being pushed that it's somehow normal to take "days" or even "weeks" to get to a result in the election.

Arizona Count Drags on: Hundreds of Thousands of Ballots Outstanding.  Maricopa County's estimated 185,000-195,000 remaining outstanding ballots include an estimated 5,000 "Election Day ballots," 171,227 estimated "early ballots left to process and tabulate," about 10,159 "early ballots left to cure," and an estimated 430 "provisional ballots left to research."

Lt. Gen. McInerney: 330k Votes Were Shifted From Dr. Oz To Fetterman, 36k Shifted From Lake to Hobbs.  The Two Mikes were joined about an hour ago by Lt.  General Thomas McInerney (ret'd), who presented a brief report on last night's election results.  General McInerney said the election was a repeat of 2020 with widespread vote manipulation by the Democrats and their Chinese paymasters.  The general pointed especially to Pennsylvania and Arizona, reporting that 330 thousand votes were shifted from Dr. Oz to Fetterman, and in Arizona about 36,000 were shifted from Kari Lake to Hobbs.  This kind of thing, he said, occurred across the country.  General McInerney recommended that all losing Republican candidates who believe they were the victims of cheating should ask for an audit and not a recount.  A recount merely counts the paper ballots and that includes the ones that were illicitly moved.

Unreal midterm elections and the search for sanity in America.  The election last week defied reality.  For example, John Fetterman, the Democrat who won the U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania, promised more inflationary spending, more lenient treatment of felons amid a violent crime wave and more of the left's radical, parent-dissing sexual agenda.  Yet he won. [...] Finally, in some areas, vote fraud may be baked into the system, especially in one-party urban districts.  Although some states tightened election security after 2020, others still have COVID-excused extended early voting, no photo ID, unmanned drop boxes and millions of mailed ballots from compromised registration lists.  Plus, hackable voting machines.  Does this prove that vote fraud occurred?  Nope.  Fraud is hard to detect and hard to prove.  Looking at election anomalies that defy rational explanation is like detecting a huge, expanding ripple in the sea.  You didn't actually see the tail, so you can't prove a whale was just there.  But you know something big was.  Anyway, while the rest of the country scratched its head in disbelief over so many Democrat wins, Texas and Florida excelled for the GOP.

With This Obstacle in Place, Republicans Can't Get the White House.  Surveying the wreckage of the disappointing Republican midterms, voters were left scratching their heads, trying to figure out what went wrong. [...] While I've seen plenty of postmortems already, the single biggest issue that wrecked the wave was mail-in voting combined with ballot-harvesting, which all but eliminated Republican hopes in states where Democrats control the voting rules.  This is why Senate polls were so wrong in these states.  The two states where the impact was most obvious were Pennsylvania and Michigan, but it snuffed out real Republican chances all over the map in states where the Democrats control voting laws.  Pennsylvania literally elected a dead man, and I'm not even talking about the pro-crime radical with such severe brain damage that he can't form a coherent sentence.  With two of our kids having gone to college in Michigan, we spend a fair amount of time visiting there.  As near as I can tell, the only Michigan residents who actually like Gretchen Whitmer are in her immediate family.  And yet she easily beat an impressive Republican candidate.  In a fair election, Tudor Dixon wins that race easily.

Nevada Republican Adam Laxalt's Senate campaign 'bracing for a loss,' prepping for recount: report.  As Republican Adam Laxalt's lead in the Nevada Senate race dwindles with 93% of the vote counted, his campaign is reportedly "bracing for a loss" and weighing asking for a recount.  Laxalt is ahead of incumbent Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto by just 800 votes after 23,000 mail-in ballots were tabulated in Clark County on Friday.  The results from the mail-in ballots are favoring Cortez Masto at a 2-1 rate.  Clark County, home to Las Vegas, reportedly has about 27,000 mail-in ballots left to be counted.

These Counties Experiencing Election Issues Have One Thing In Common.  It suffices to say that Election Day didn't go as planned for some polling places that experienced and are still experiencing ballot-counting issues.  Despite the varying election-related difficulties, multiple jurisdictions share one foreseen commonality.  There's a common thread connecting five counties spread across several states that were in disarray on Election Day:  federal "monitors."  On the eve of the elections, the Biden administration's Department of Justice announced Monday it would be dispatching such monitors to as many as 64 jurisdictions in almost half of U.S. states on Election Day to oversee federal election law "compliance."  According to the DOJ's watch list, Pennsylvania's Luzerne County, Texas's Harris County, Arizona's Maricopa County, and Pima County, and Nevada's Washoe County all had the feds there "monitoring" polls.  The nationwide deployment is a notable expansion.  Nevada wasn't on the DOJ's roster two years ago during the presidential election cycle in 2020.  Still, it was on the DOJ's radar this time, and Pima County — Arizona's second-most populous, which holds Tucscon — is among the new additions.

The battle over a 100% hand count in Arizona pulls back the mask.  Some day, perhaps even sometime this year if we're lucky, when election officials in Arizona finally find someone capable of mastering preschool mathematics and they finish counting their ballots, we may know the outcome of the 2022 midterm elections.  But that day is not today, my friends.  They are somehow still flummoxed by the task of gathering up hundreds of thousands of ballots and feeding them into machines of dubious efficacy.  Meanwhile, a different set of election supervisors appears to be ready to move forward with a hand count of nearly all of the ballots.  Those officials are facing threats from state Democrats, however.  The liberals have gone to court and obtained an order to forbid any such action, though the ruling seems to defy the state's election laws.

Arizona Ballots Make [a] Stop at Runbeck Printing Company to Scan Ballot Envelopes Before They Are Sent to [the] County.  Ben Bergquam was outside the Maricopa County election center and followed a Penske truck leave the center and return to Runbeck.  Once at Runbeck, the gate is closed.  Every mail-in ballot that is returned in the county is sent to Runbeck first.  Runbeck is scanning the Maricopa ballots before they are sent to the Maricopa County Elections Center.  [Tweet with video clip]

The Editor says...
That's an interesting report, but how does the reporter know what's happening to the ballots behind closed doors (and gates)?

Republicans need to figure out mail-in voting.  What was the determinative fix in the 2022 midterm elections?  Early, mostly mail-in, voting.  It is perfectly legal.  But it undermines a fair and open electoral process.  Were I a Democrat, I might even say that it "threatens our democracy."  Why?  Because it allows for the wholesale manipulation of the vote.  It also dilutes the integrity of an election by transforming it from an event into a process.  I should add that "mail-in ballots" is an equivocal term.  It can mean different things in different contexts and in different states.  The practice is obviously open to more interference and manipulation than same-day voting is. [...] The real issue is that the wholesale practice of early or mail-in voting makes a mockery of elections.  If you say that an election is to be held on November 8, but millions of ballots are already docketed, if not actually counted, by the time November 8 rolls around, why bother to have Election Day at all?  Why not have Election Week, or Election Month, or Election Quarter? [...] There is also the elephant, or rather the donkey, in the room:  mail-in voting is largely a Democratic concession, encouraged and abetted by Democrats in order to help influence the course of elections.  My own feeling is that the practice should be sharply curtailed, if not outlawed.

What's the Matter With Arizona?  [Scroll down] When some ballots refused to go through the scanners, some voters were told just to go to a different polling place and try again.  Once they got to the new place they were told that since they had checked in and received a ballot at the prior location they would not be given another ballot.  Makes sense, but not if your first ballot was trashed.  Which brings me to "drawer 3."  Apparently some of the unscannable ballots were placed into a "secure lock box" where the authorities essentially said we intend to scan these somewhere else at a time to be determined.  Since the ballot would not scan where it was filled in, who believes it will scan downtown?  Hand tally anyone?  Don't forget that our Secretary of State, Katie Hobbs, has ultimate supervisory responsibility for running a "free and fair" election, but is herself running for governor and is locked in a very tight battle with none other than Kari Lake.  Apparently, the appearance of impropriety is the standard they use there.  Plus, the SOS's office has been closed for two years due to Covid, and the team was working from home via Zoom.  Seems unlikely to me all those printers and scanners were checked out via Zoom.

What's happening in Nevada?  Arizona?  Upstate NY?  Whitney Webb's One Nation under Blackmail published late last month, explains in exhaustive detail how the American government was taken over by well-dressed thieves.  Webb writes from the left, but she is dispassionate.  In 1,000 pages, she explains the history of the turning of democracy, starting post WW2 with the heinous Dulles brothers, moving through Reagan with country club thugs calling themselves The Enterprise, to Jeffrey Epstein's seduction of Bill and Hillary Clinton.  Promising riches beyond their imaginings, the seduction led the couple, by increments, to sell out the country to China and Wall Street.  Webb explains how Epstein set up the Clinton and Gates Foundations promising a new iteration in 'charity', one that made profits, and pushed forward the founders as Saviours.  Clinton in her years as Sec State, flew around the world eating brownies and demanding tithes for herself, in return for every beneficence she gave courtesy of the American taxpayer.  The '08 crisis was brought to us by the same crooks, and the same methods, chipping away at regulation.  The head Fannie and Freddie Mae bureaucrat, James A Johnson walked away with $100 million leaving the world in crisis.  Tens of millions lost everything. [...] Add in the Covid mess, and another bunch of corporate and government thieves walked away with $3 Trillion, in the US alone.  Do you really think they'd allow the endless prosecutions they deserve?  Do you really think they want to give back the money they stole?  Do you think they would allow a landslide which gave us the power to investigate?  No and no and no and no.

Maricopa County Supervisor Says 'It's Offensive' To Expect Votes To Be Counted Faster.  Maricopa County Supervisor Bill Gates criticized Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake of Arizona Thursday [11/10/2022] over her criticism of the slow pace of the vote count.  "Quite frankly it's offensive for Kari Lake to say that these people behind me are slow rolling this when they're working 14 to 18 hours.  So I really hope this is the end of that now.  We can be patient and respect the results when they come out," Gates said in remarks to a local station that were broadcast on CNN Friday.  Lake, who currently trails Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, 50.7% to 49.3% with 78% of the votes in according to the New York Times, accused election officials of "slow rolling" the count during a Thursday appearance on Newsmax, telling guest host Bianca de la Garza that she expected to win and changes to the state's election processes would be a top priority.

DeSantis 2024? Think Again.  There really was a red wave in the midterms, but it was macro-engineered to a trickle, as should have been expected.  The scam of "malfunctioning" voting machines, the shortage of paper ballots, the tsunami of mail-in and late ballots, the temporary closing and slow-downs of polling stations, and so on would have been sufficient to determine an electoral result.  2020 was an early run for 2022, which in turn should be regarded as a template for 2024.  I am absolutely sure that the Dems are now, even as we speak, preparing favorable ground for the next presidential election. [...] In a rigged electoral system, no Republican candidate, not even DeSantis, can be expected to win a national election. [...] If the system is not repaired and made answerable to the people, there will never be a Republican president again.

Abolish 'Voting Season' and Bring Back Election Day.  Simply put, no one could doubt that, for a long time, Democrats have owned the dishonest ground game in politics.  But on that last point, Democrats have taken it a step further.  On April 7, 2020, Elizabeth Warren called for new "badly needed vote-by-mail reforms," for example, expressing a goal to "allow as many Americans as possible to vote from home."  Though vote-by-mail introduces countless risks to election integrity, Democrats have embraced it for reasons that should be obvious.  There is no need to present yourself at the polling location, so there is no need for buses and paid operatives to canvas your neighborhood and talk you into voting.  And if grandma is senile and has no idea what the issues are or who to vote for, and your live-in college student daughter claims to love the Democrat candidate but can't be bothered to go to the polls and vote, why not fill out and mail in their ballots?  That way, your one vote against whatever Republican fascist is on the ballot becomes three votes, lickety-split.  Yay, democracy is saved!

Livestream Cameras Capturing Vote-Count Area Go Dark, Take 8 Hours to Come Back Online.  While Democrats were clinging to slim leads in Arizona and Georgia on Friday (the latter of which will have a runoff election on Dec. 6), an upset appeared to be brewing in the Nevada Senate race.  Republican Adam Laxalt, whom polls showed to be several points behind for much of the campaign, had a slim lead over incumbent Democrat Sen. Catherine Cortez Mastro on Friday morning.  That's good, if you're rooting for a GOP majority.  However, controversy reared its ugly head when a camera issue caused all manner of speculation to run rampant about the Nevada race.  That's bad, regardless of your political affiliation.  Washoe County had been running livestream cameras to show the vote counting taking place at its complex in Reno.  On Wednesday night, those cameras inexplicably went dark, and they remained so until Thursday morning, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal.

New Jersey Mayor Says Ballots Went Missing: 'We Will Not Rest Until We Get to the Bottom of This'.  Robbinsville, New Jersey, Mayor Dave Fried said in a Nov. 9 statement that officials were notified at approximately 5 p.m. that "the ballots of one of our districts had gone missing."  "The fundamentals of Democracy is that every vote would be counted.  Clearly, this has yet to happen in Robbinsville, as approximately 11 percent of our residents' votes have yet to be safely delivered and counted," Fried said.  Fried said officials are working with the county, which is in charge of the election.  "We will not rest until we get to the bottom of this unconscionable mishap, and we will not consider the 2022 election over in Robbinsville until every single ballot is counted and done so securely," he said.

Clark County Will Need Three More Days to Count 50,000 Ballots.  Election officials Clark County, Nevada — the state's most populous county that includes the Las Vegas area — have stated that they will need an additional three days to count upwards of 50,000 outstanding ballots.  Mail-in ballots postmarked prior to election day can be counted if they arrive as late as Saturday, meaning that Nevada does not yet have a final count on the number of outstanding ballots.  The state is home to one of the nation's most closely watched races, as Republican Senate candidate Adam Laxalt currently leads incumbent Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto in a race that could decide the balance of the U.S. Senate candidate.

AP: Stop talking about the Maricopa voting machines, peasants.  The votes from Tuesday are still being tabulated in a number of places since we apparently aren't as smart as France when it comes to counting ballots.  But malfunctions and discrepancies have once again raised suspicions or at least questions about the election equipment being used around the country.  The most glaring example is obviously the breakdown in Maricopa County on Tuesday morning.  The voting machines (we're supposed to call them "tabulators") in dozens of precincts across Arizona's most populous county left people standing in long lines or being "checked out" so they could go find another location to "check" in and hopefully find a functional machine.  Other voters were given provisional ballots to drop into a container with an assurance that election workers would absolutely scan them in when the equipment was back up and running.  But the Associated Press has already leaped into action, warning people on social media not to ask any questions because that would just be dangerous misinformation.

Maricopa County now says counting of ballots won't be done until next week.  Maricopa County officials have shifted the goalposts on when Arizona's largest county will complete the counting process from Tuesday's midterm elections, another inexplicable delay that further drags out a problem-ridden process and undermines voter confidence.  On Thursday, CNN caught up with the chairman of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, Bill Gates, who told a network reporter that there are around 400,000 ballots left and that the job won't be finished until "early next week," keeping the nation in the dark on the critical Senate race that could determine which party controls the upper chamber of Congress as well as whether Republican Kari Lake will be elected as governor with the job of cleaning up the mess that has made the state into a laughingstock.

Harris County officials vow to sort out 2022 election day issues.  Harris County Elections Administrator Clifford Tatum says his team will be working to sort out the issues that caused problems on election day.  Harris County experienced many issues from polling sites opening late, machine malfunctions, and even some polling sites running out of ballots.  Wednesday morning, election workers were still counting emergency ballots at central counting at NRG Arena.  "We will assess our election operations from early voting through election night through today," he said at a Wednesday afternoon presser.  Polling sites were scheduled to open at 7 a.m. but officials said four locations opened late.

Election Livestream Goes Dark At Vote Counting Facility In Key Nevada County.  In order to have some kind of "transparency" many of Nevada's counties have been live-streaming ballot counting.  One of those counties counting ballots while live streaming is Washoe County.  Last night, however, "transparency" went out the window because at 11:24 PM Washoe County's live stream went offline which led to viewers staring at black screens.  [Tweet]

Delayed Results Are Killing Americans' Trust In Elections.  Democrats tried to frame the 2022 midterms as a referendum on Republicans, whom they've branded a "threat to democracy," but the real threat to our nation is how little Americans can trust elections that drag on for days or weeks.  Many Americans already have a hard time believing that although nearly 75 percent of voters think the country is on the wrong track, they chose to keep many of the same crises-causing candidates.  But assuming that discrepancy can be explained by the Democrats' get-out-the-vote machine and other factors, Americans have bigger doubts — namely that three days after polls closed, voters still don't know who controls the House of Representatives and the Senate, nor who will govern several western states.  Thanks to complications on Nov. 8 and hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots to tabulate, Arizona and Nevada aren't expected to deliver their final tabulations until next week.

Three Primary Factors Stopped That Red Wave.  Early voting is the sleeper contributor to last night's losses.  It gives both parties an advance detailed picture of how many people voted, who voted, who is likely to vote but hasn't yet, and what party voters support or belong to.  With all the massive databases out there and modern computers, they have a pretty good idea of how many votes they need to produce to win an election and where to go to get them, days before election day.  Then, all that the parties must do is go round up their laggards and either run them to the polls or lockboxes or collect their ballots.  The Democrats have a huge advantage with legions of union foot soldiers who excel at rounding up their lightly-motivated voters and strong-arming them if necessary.  My experience with leftist voters is that they're more emotional than rational, so the Democrats just need to scare them about some issue, and voila!  They get their votes.

Democratic meddling in GOP primaries paid off in a big way on Election Day.  Democrats' strategy of spending millions to boost pro-Trump candidates in Republican primaries appeared to pay off Tuesday as the party ended the night with a clean sweep of the races in which it chose to meddle.  All six of the Republican candidates who seemingly benefited from the meddling in their primary victories fell to their Democratic opponents.  Those races include a number of key House and gubernatorial races, as well as the New Hampshire Senate race.  Democrats spent more than $40 million boosting those six GOP candidates, all of whom expressed support for former President Donald Trump as a leader of the Republican Party or were backed by him.

The Arizona Voting Machines Disaster in Maricopa County is Even Worse Than We Thought.  Arizona election officials' use of voting machines in Maricopa County has once again cast a dark cloud over a highly contested election.  On Election Day, when most Republicans turn out to vote in elections, it was reported that voting machine problems caused delays in an estimated 20 percent of the polls in Maricopa County.  Kari Lake on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" said that the voting machine delays caused issues in predominately Republican-leaning precincts in Maricopa County.

Democrat New York Election Inspector Deceives Voting System to Secure Official Republican Position at Polling Location.  "If I wanted to work and change the system, from [the inside], I had to be a Republican."  [Video clip]

Tuesday Takeaways.  During the COVID-19 lockdowns, American elections radically changed to mail-in and early voting.  They did so in a wild variety of state-by-state ways.  Add ranked voting and a required majority margin to the mess and the result is that once cherished Election Day balloting becomes increasingly irrelevant.  Election Night also no longer exists.  Returns are not counted for days.  It is intolerable for a modern democracy to wait and wait for all sorts of different ballots both cast and counted under radically different and sometimes dubious conditions.  The Democrats — with overwhelming media and money advantages — have mastered these arts of massive and unprecedented early, mail-in, and absentee voting.  Old-fashioned Republicans count on riling up their voters to show up on Election Day.  But it is far easier to finesse and control the mail-in ballots than to "get out the vote."

NJ County Seeks Inquiry After Dominion Scanners Reject Votes.  The official charged with certifying elections in Mercer County, New Jersey, has asked county Prosecutor Angelo Onofri's office to investigate after as many as 600 Dominion Voting Systems Inc. machines failed to accept ballots on Tuesday. [...] "I absolutely reported it this morning for a complete and full investigation," county clerk Paula Sollami Covello, who attests to results, said in an interview.  "It could have been an error on the part of someone.  It could have been intentional and criminal." The prosecutor's office said it was looking into the issue.

How Could John Fetterman Have Won?  Every Possible Answer Is Bad in a Different Way.  The immediate possibility, of course, is that Fetterman's victory is due to chicanery at the ballot box.  Over at Townhall, Mia Cathell reported Wednesday that "in an undercover video filmed by Project Veritas Action (PVA) journalists at a Philadelphia polling location, Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe alleges that the investigative group's journalists were told whom to vote for mere feet outside of one of the city's polling places.  Two of the interactions were captured on camera."  The person telling voters how to vote was, of course, a Democrat Party operative.  O'Keefe explains, "This is referred to as electioneering."  It's also illegal.  This is striking, but it isn't evidence of large-scale ballot box tampering.  In a clear sign that they suspected they would have to cheat in order to win, the Fetterman camp filed suit the other day to have ballots counted even if they were marked with the wrong date.  But as it turns out, they didn't even need the tainted ballots to put their man over the top.

The New "Normal" Casts Doubt on Election Results.  In 2020, the excuse for long delays in vote-counting, for keeping Republican monitors away from watching the vote-counting, for disregarding state constitutions and long-established election integrity laws, for the use of unverifiable mail-in voting, and the like was the Covid pandemic.  In the 2022 mid-term elections, it appears that Democrats, pleased with how all of that helped them in the last election, want to normalize such practices that cause serious questions about election integrity. [...] It is not surprising that Pennsylvania's Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman has actually filed a lawsuit to mandate that undated mail-in votes be counted, despite the fact that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has already ruled recently that they could not be counted.  Furthermore, VOX reported, "We won't know all the midterm results on election night.  That's normal."  If it were just one media source making that argument, then it could be dismissed, but it is almost as though they have circulated a memo to convince Americans that this is the new normal.  But this is not "normal."  In France, for example, all votes are by paper ballot and mail-in votes are not allowed.  And the results are reported within 24 hours.  That is the way it pretty much used to be in the United States.  Writing on Twitter, columnist Auron MacIntyre observed, "They are literally going to tell us every election now that sure it looks like the GOP won but just wait, we'll count the votes until they didn't."

As Usual, I Was Wrong.  [Scroll down] Maricopa County?  A mess as usual.  The secretary of state there, Katie Hobbs, didn't recuse herself and no one forced her to, and so the Democrat running for governor is in charge of the elections across the state.  Apparently, no one saw a problem with that.  We'll see how the race turns out, but, at this writing, Hobbs is ahead.  Kari Lake was 11 points ahead of her in polling.  How did that happen??  Harris County, Texas, is a mess, too.  The Republican part of the county up north, a planned community called Kingwood, ran out of paper ballots.  Now, how does that happen?  This is important because a big race in Harris County, the one for county judge, was won four years ago by the AOC of Texas, Lina Hidalgo.  She's incompetent and corrupt.  Nearly all her advisers are being indicted.  This race was, is crucial.  Right now, Hidalgo has a razor-thin margin.  Voting has been extended in the county to account for the ballots, but who knows?

Righteous outrage builds over Arizona's 'national disgrace' of a voting process.  There is trouble on many fronts in Arizona, where officials are having issues counting votes.  Yet collecting and counting votes is basically the full description of their job.  Republicans are seeing red, as it were, and registering their outrage in interviews and on Twitter.  The problem receiving all the focus is in Maricopa County, which is the most populous county in the state.  About 20% of the polling sites there reportedly had issues with tabulation machines reading ballots.  Believe it or not, the Maricopa County Supervisor's name is Bill Gates.  Gates' crack team of vote counters estimated that about 7% of the votes in the county were affected — about 17,000 ballots.  The tabulators were not the real source of the problem, though.  There was a printing "mishap" that prevented machines from reading them.  The printers were not producing dark enough ink.  Gates apologized.  Sorry about that.

Republicans Have Won 6 Million More Votes than Democrats in House Races, But Gained Relatively Few Seats.  Republicans have won nearly six million more votes nationwide in races for the House of Representatives, but have flipped relatively few seats, suggesting talk of a "red wave" may have anticipated the overall mood of the country but not the final result of the election. [...] The mismatch between overall votes cast for Republicans and the actual result reflects the polarized nature of congressional maps.  It also reflects the fact that Republican losses against many Democratic incumbents were very narrow.  However, it could also suggest that Democrats ran a more effective campaign, concentrating resources where they were needed to defend their vulnerable positions.

Unexplained Ballot Drop in GA Senate Race Likely Prevented Herschel Walker from Winning Race Outright.  The crooks and criminals are stealing US Elections in multiple ways.  One of the biggest ways they stole the 2020 Election for President was the "The Drop and Roll" method.  In the Drop and Roll incidents in the 2020 Election, we identified that at around the point where 90% of the expected ballots were returned, a large batch of ballots was "dropped" with nearly every ballot going to Joe Biden.  These batches were as large as 330,000 ballots for Biden in Virginia at one time.  Then, after that point, nearly all the batches of ballots recorded in the election were at the same ratio of Biden to Trump with Biden always receiving more ballots than President Trump.  These results were not random and clearly not legitimate.

Deceased Pennsylvania State Rep. Reelected in Landslide.  A state lawmaker in Pennsylvania has been reelected to another term in office on Nov. 8 despite already passing away last month.  State Rep. Tony DeLuca, a Democrat, died at age 85 on Oct. 9 due to lymphoma.  The timing of his death was too late for election officials to change the ballots.  DeLuca had served as a representative in the Pennsylvania state legislature for 39 years.  He received more than 85 percent of the vote in the 32nd District in Allegheny County.  This accounted for nearly 14,000 votes on Election Day, and more than 7,000 votes via mail.  DeLuca had served on the House Insurance Committee and the Democratic Policy Committee.  His opponent, Green candidate Queonia "Zarah" Livingston, received roughly 14 percent of the vote.

Florida Counts Votes Swiftly While Other States Slow to a Snail's Pace.  Florida closed out the midterm Tuesday night with swift vote results while other states like Arizona, Alaska, California, etc., slowed to a snail's pace, prompting comparisons to the 2020 election and questions regarding efficiency.  Americans can recall the Bush v. Gore 2000 election when Florida had little to boast about election efficiency as the country waited for weeks between recounts and litigation for a winner to be declared, but 20 years later, that nightmare has been reduced to a distant memory in the Sunshine State.  What changed since then?  As WPTV political analyst Brian Crowley put it after Trump handily won Florida in 2020, it all comes down to the state's investment in the right equipment and its counting of mail-in ballots 22 days before the election.

Democrats' midterm Plan B seems to be working.  Is it just a coincidence that a slew of articles appeared in the nation's socialist media with almost the same storyline to expect delays in election results?  Up until a few days ago, the nation's far left and the nation's socialist media were silent about how long it would take for the midterm results to be resolved.  Then, as someone else noticed, they all published almost identical versions of the same article:  "prepare to wait for election results that could take many days."  Almost all of them within the same narrow timespan: [...] Isn't it curious that this issue suddenly cropped up almost overnight?  If you were suspicious or not very trusting of the socialists of the sinister set that we know and loathe of the nation's left, you would be of the mindset that they waited until the last minute, hoping against hope that they would pull this off, and once it was all falling apart, they would be on to plan B for "ballot."  And it seems to be working.

Pennsylvania Democrat State Representative Reelected Despite Being Dead.  A state lawmaker in Pennsylvania was re-elected on Tuesday despite passing away last month.  Early voting numbers Tuesday indicated that the dead Democrat had a sizable lead over the Green Party challenger.  It's not hard to see why brain-dead Fetterman won in Pennsylvania!  This is a big loss because it may cost the GOP control of the Senate.  But in Pennsylvania, they vote for the party and not for the person they want to represent them!  Late state Rep. Tony DeLuca won his seat in the 32nd District, triggering a special election to fill that seat at a later date, in one of the first state House races called Tuesday night by the Associated Press.  Early voting numbers Tuesday indicated that Mr. DeLuca, a Democrat, had a sizable lead over Green Party challenger Zarah Livingston.  Mr. DeLuca, the longest-serving member of the state House of Representatives, died last month at age 85 from lymphoma.

If voters must be living when they cast a ballot, the candidate should face the same requirement on Election Day.

Win or Lose, Republicans Should Maintain a Healthy Level of Distrust in the Voting System.  I want to start this out by saying there's nothing wrong with distrusting the system that is the gateway to our country's future.  You should.  Having a healthy dose of paranoia around how the system works and operates makes it that much harder for anything to go wrong.  It never sat right with me that it became taboo to even question the 2020 election in mainstream society.  Even if there wasn't any cheating and it really was the "safest election in history" the fact that we weren't allowed to talk about it was only ever going to stoke doubt.  To this day a lot of questions still hang in the air that aren't going answered, and getting angry with people who have these questions says a lot more about the people refusing to answer them than it does the askers.  Right now, there are some very odd things happening in Arizona.  Maricopa county is seeing one in five polling locations experience trouble with their machines.  The fact that gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake went down to a heavily blue area only to find their machines worked fine only makes this look worse.  As of this writing, Maricopa is severely under where it should be in terms of turnout.

Republican-Led States Reject the Intrusion of DOJ Poll Monitoring.  Merrick Garland's Department of Justice informed several state attorneys general that it would be sending election monitors to jurisdictions within their states on Monday.  The memo released the day before Election Day named 64 jurisdictions in 24 states where employees from the DOJ's Civil Rights Division Voting Section, U.S. Attorney's offices, and the Office of Personnel Management will monitor the process. [...] While this activity may have gone on in the past, the DOJ's most recent notice has raised the ire of several states.  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton appeared on Glenn Beck's radio program yesterday and said he was researching state law to prevent the DOJ from entering polling places.  Early Tuesday morning, the Florida Department of State sent a letter to the DOJ banning the agency's monitors from polling places in the state.  According to the memo, DOJ monitors are not allowed inside polling places under the Florida statute that lists who is allowed in polling places.

This is not normal at all.  Don't let anyone tell you it is.  Seriously: Anyone who tells you this is normal or even temporarily acceptable is lying and probably has an agenda of some kind: [...]["]The Philadelphia City Commissioners voted 2-1 at a special early morning meeting to reinstate a process called "poll book reconciliation," which is designed to eliminate the duplication of in-person votes and those already cast as mail-in or absentee ballots. ... Seth Bluestein, one of the three commissioners, said after the vote that the decision will mean that an estimated 15,000 to 30,000 paper ballots will not be counted on election night so that officials can make sure there is no double counting.["]

Arizona [is being] told to 'prepare' for days of counting.  Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who is running for governor, told voters to "prepare" to wait days for votes to be counted in this year's midterm elections.  Hobbs, Arizona's top election official, is facing Republican candidate Kari Lake in a closely watched race that has been deemed a toss-up for weeks leading up to Election Day.  "Every single vote matters, and every single vote counts equally — whether you voted by mail, dropped off your ballot at a secure drop box yesterday, or voted in person today," Hobbs said in a statement Tuesday evening.  "We must all be patient and wait for every last vote to be counted."

Thanks to Insane Ranked-Choice Voting, Sarah Palin Has Election Taken from Her Again.  Thanks to the GOP voting in ranked-choice voting, Sarah Palin has election taken from her again.  Sarah Palin deserves a special medal of honor for her attempts to make America a great country.  The former governor of Alaska offered to help the helpless John McCain in his run for President and she was hammered by the media like no politician up to that point in history.  After helping McCain increase his popularity with the public, McCain threw her under the bus when he lost.  This past year, Palin ran for office again, this time for US Rep from Alaska.  She ended up losing the election after the GOP had more votes due to the GOP pushing through ranked choice voting in the state.

'Illegal Electioneering' for PA Dems Fetterman, Shapiro Caught on Camera: Project Veritas.  In an undercover video filmed by Project Veritas Action (PVA) journalists at a Philadelphia polling location, Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe alleges that the investigative group's journalists were told whom to vote for mere feet outside of one of the city's polling places.  Two of the interactions were captured on camera.  "This is referred to as electioneering," O'Keefe asserts.  "This is a Democratic Party form," says a "committee person" whom PVA identifies as Rudy Stewart.  The self-identified committee member presents a stack of papers titled "Official Democratic City Committee Ballot" for the 2022 general election in Philadelphia County.  "Here's the ballot," Stewart says while speaking to an undercover PVA reporter.  At another point in PVA's footage, Stewart states to presumed voters passing through: "Anyone need Democratic Party information?"  Stewart then hands out the material to the passersby.  Later on, pointing to Fetterman's Republican opponent Dr. Mehmet Oz's name listed on a table of Pennsylvania candidates pinned to a wall, Stewart says, "We're scared of him."

Arizona Election Worker Caught On Video Misleading Voters.  In this Maricopa County video, the voter inserts his ballot into the tabulation machine.  The poll worker instructs the voter there is a problem with his ballot.  She explains one or more races have not been marked properly.  The voter admits he made a mistake with the felt pen when marking the ballot.  She influences him to accept the ballot in its current condition.  He just needs to hit the green "Cast" button and his ballot will be accepted.  Because there is a mistake on his ballot, the voter has no idea it will now go to adjudication.  This often takes days.  This voter did have the option to complete a new ballot.  But this was not explained properly.  He needed to hit the red button to "Reject" the ballot.  The tabulating machine would then spit out his ballot.  The polling place spoils this ballot and issues the voter a new one.  Because he was not properly informed, his ballot will go to adjudication.  [Video clip]

Republican Congressional Candidate, Billy Prempeh caught poll workers on video electioneering for his opponent.  Congressional Candidate, Billy Prempeh caught poll workers on video electioneering for his opponent, BillPascrell in Paterson, NJ at School 10.  Billy Prempeh was born in Paterson, New Jersey.  He served in the United States Air Force from 2009 to 2011.  Prempeh received an associate degree from the Community College of the Air Force in 2010.  His professional experience includes working in marketing and sales.  [Video clip]

Midterm Updates and Silver Linings.  The problem with calling what was to come a Red Wave was always that many races were tight.  Polling was close in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Nevada.  If GOP victory was to be a near-certainty, then the media would frame anything less as a defeat.  Well, here we are. [...] Arizona remains in play, although the media's consensus is that Democrat Mark Kelly is likely to prevail over Republican Blake Masters.  We're not so sure about that.  Arizona has somehow only counted 68% of its ballots as of noon Eastern — an achievement worthy of the third-world — and Masters performed well on election day.  It'll be close.  But complicating matters is the fact that Maricopa County has 275,000 early ballots they have yet to count.  (That is only part of Maricopa County's problems, which included non-functioning voting machines that likely disenfranchised thousands.)

The Left's 'Red Mirage' Narrative Is Nothing More Than A Cover For Election-Rigging.  On the eve of Election Day, when a red wave is expected to sweep the country, Democrats and their allies in the corporate press ramped up their propaganda campaign to normalize delayed election results.  Prepare for a "red mirage," they warned.  It was a coordinated effort across corporate media.  Headlines ranged from "Why The 2022 Midterm Election Results Might Not Be Known Right Away" (CBS News) to "Be patient: this election is probably going to go on awhile" (NPR) to "We won't know all the midterm results on election night.  That's normal" (Vox) and finally this kicker from ABC:  "Early election night results might not indicate final tallies (and why that's ok)."  Note ABC News' framing, which posits that while early election night results might point to a red wave (as polls overwhelmingly suggest), it will all be a "mirage" as Democrats will catch up to (and surpass) their opponents once mail-in and absentee ballots are calculated in the coming days.

WH, Dems, media lapdogs out in force parroting narrative it will take days, or weeks to count votes.  WHY?  The Biden administration, Democrats, and the leftist media are all out in force repeatedly telling Americans it will take days if not weeks to count the votes and that it has always been that way.  The Washington Post, for example, is bleating, "Results are not official on Election Day.  States often take weeks to announce the final results."  But that is a recent development created by Democrats instituting mail-in voting and other political shenanigans to give them an edge in competitive races.  "You may see stories or social media posts Tuesday evening that declare winners.  But even in this time of powerful computers and other speedy technology, the election process isn't completed in a few hours or the next day," the leftist media outlet proclaimed.  White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted at a press conference, "We may not know all the winners of elections for a few days.  It takes time to count all legitimate ballots in a legal and orderly manner.  That's how this is supposed to work."

The Editor says...
No, Election Day is supposed to be one day, and it should take a maximum four or five hours to count all the votes.  Any votes that are "found" after midnight on Election Day should not be counted.  Count every legal vote.  Count every legitimate vote from living U.S. citizens who are properly registered to vote, and exclude all other ballots.

Judge Orders Pennsylvania County Polling Sites to Stay Open Late Due to Paper Shortages.  A judge in Pennsylvania's Luzerne County ordered all polling sites to remain open for two additional hours after paper shortages cropped up during the midterm elections.  Court of Common Pleas Judge Lesa Gelb entered the order after hearing from county officials, who lodged a petition on Nov. 8 for extended hours.  "Voters in Luzerne County through no fault of their own, were disenfranchised and denied the fundamental right to vote," Gelb said in her order, which was made "in an effort to protect and maintain the integrity of the 2022 General Election and to protect the voters of this County."  The sites, originally slated to remain open until 8 p.m., were ordered to remain open until 10 p.m.

Illinois County Clerk Reports Cyber Attacks on Servers, Voters Asked to 'Stay in Line'.  Authorities in Champaign County, Illinois, said Tuesday that a cyberattack is affecting server performance during the 2022 midterm elections.  The Champaign County Clerk's Office said it is "is aware of connectivity issues and computer server performance being impacted.  The Clerk's Office believes these are due to cyber-attacks on the network and servers," according to a statement posted on social media on Tuesday afternoon.  The office said its websites have been subject to distributed denial-of-service, or DDOS, attacks for the past month.  "Fortunately the reinforced security and response from the Clerk's IT team has prevented these attacks from being successful and the Clerk's website has remained secured," it said.  "No data or information has been compromised and the election is secure."

More Reports Flood In About Dominion Voting Machine Malfunctions In Texas, New Jersey.  Republicans are becoming heavily skeptical as reports begin flooding in about Dominion voting machines being "broken," "down," and "not warmed up yet" across the county.  Three areas with the most reports include Arizona, Texas, and New Jersey.  Which are posed to hold very tight elections.  Maricopa County, the most populous county in Arizona, is already facing issues with voters turning in their ballots.  In one now viral video, a poll worker is shown informing a line of Arizonans waiting to cast their vote that their two tabulators are not working properly.

Florida Rejects DOJ Plan to Place Monitors Inside Voting Locations.  U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) workers are not allowed inside polling locations, a Florida official has told the agency.  Brad McVay, general counsel for the Florida Department of State, told DOJ election official John Russ that Florida law does not permit DOJ monitors to be stationed inside of polling places after the DOJ announced it would monitor compliance with federal voting laws in three Florida counties.  "Earlier today, the Florida Department of State received copies of your letters to Miami-Dade and Broward Counties in which you seem to indicate that the Department of Justice will send monitors inside polling places in these counties.  We also understand you sent a similar letter to Palm Beach County," McVay wrote in a letter.  "But Department of Justice monitors are not permitted under Florida law."

Did Sunny Hostin just admit on air to breaking the law by voting for her son?  Sunny Hostin, cohost of The View, set off a flurry of questions after admitting Tuesday on the ABC daytime talk show that she voted absentee ballot for her son.  The liberal harpies on the show were doing their part to disparage the voting process in the midterm elections, setting the stage for questioning the legitimacy of what is widely expected to be a Republican rout, where even in New York there's a possibility that GOP challenger Lee Zeldin will defeat Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul.  At one point, co-host Whoopie Goldberg reprimanded Hostin for being on her smartphone, telling her colleague, "Put that phone down, girl!  God bless you."  "It's my son," Hostin replied.  "Who by the way wanted to make sure that his absentee ballot was — that I did that.  And I had trouble actually voting for him, absentee ballot today, that made me very concerned." [...] Of course, there is a lot of ambiguity in her remarks, but in saying she was "voting for him" Hostin opened up the critical question of who filled out the ballot.  A question some on social media jumped to answer, suggesting that she admitted on air that she broke the law — given what little is known, it's impossible to say for certain that she did.  She may have been just dropping off a ballot her son had already completed.

Did Sunny Hostin just admit to illegally voting on behalf of her son on live TV?  So, I may not be a legal expert, but Sunny Hostin just went on live TV saying she voted FOR her son and complained about the process of turning in his ballot. [...] I know you can drop off someone else's ballot, which would make Hostin a ballot harvester.  But she says she voted FOR him.  That's something else entirely.  Why can't Sunny Hostin's adult son mail in his own absentee ballot?  Why does his mom have it?  Did he actually fill it out?  Who signed the envelope?

The Editor says...
Incidentally, syndicated TV shows are almost never shown "live," even if the programs are represented as such, and have "Live" in the title, e.g., Live with Regis and Kelly, or whatever that show is called now.  As far as I know, the only live television shows are network sports coverage and local newscasts — and even some of the local news shows are pre-recorded.

Maricopa County Says It's Found a Solution for Tabulation Issues, Blames Printer.  Authorities in Maricopa County, Arizona, said they appeared to have found a solution to tabulation issues in dozens of polling stations in the county.  Earlier Tuesday, election officials during a 10 a.m. ET news conference said that tabulators in about 20 percent of polling sites in Maricopa County were malfunctioning.  According to election officials, the problem did not prevent people from casting their ballots saying voters could deposit the ballot in a drop box.  At around 4 p.m. ET, a statement released by the Maricopa County Elections Command Center said officials "identified a solution" to the problem and said "printer settings" were the cause.  "County technicians have changed the printer settings at about 60 Vote Centers," the statement said.  "It appears some of the printers were not producing dark enough timing marks on the ballots," it added, saying the solution worked at 17 locations so far.  Officials said technicians are now working to resolve the issue around Maricopa County, which includes Arizona's most populous city, Phoenix.

The Editor says...
If the printers have problems of this sort, they should have been discovered when the entire system was tested a few days ago.  I mean, the entire system was tested, wasn't it?

The Fix Is In: Democrat John Fetterman Tells Reporters to "Buckle Up" Because Ballot Counting Process Could Take "Several Days".  Democrat Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman said in a memo to reporters to "buckle up for a long week" because the ballot counting process could take "several days."  Why?  The only reason why Democrats need to count ballots for several days after Election Day is to overcome the Republican candidate's vote count and steal the election.  Fetterman used the 2020 election as an example in his memo to reporters and recalled how Trump was ahead by more than 700,000 votes at midnight on Election Day in Pennsylvania but still lost after the Democrats counted ballots in secret for Joe Biden for 2 weeks.

The Fix Is In — Election Day Tabulators Across Maricopa County Are Not Working Again.  Multiple videos that we received this morning show long lines in Anthem, Arizona with poll workers explaining that the Maricopa County machines are not working.  Instead of tabulating their ballot directly, voters are being told to put their ballot into a box under the tabulator so that their ballot may be tabulated at a later time downtown.  Voters are told to just drop their ballot into the open door seen below.  [Video clip]

The water main break has been postponed until 7:15 p.m.
All Voting Machines Down in Mercer County, NJ.  Election irregularities have been reported across Maricopa County, Arizona, and now all voting machines are also reportedly down in Mercer County, New Jersey.  Because elections have never been more safe and secure.  Action News on 6abc tweeted, "#BREAKING All voting macines are down in each district across Mercer County, New Jersey, according to officials.  Voters can still vote using a standard ballot at their polling locations."  6abc's article said, "More than a quarter of the state's [NJ] House seats are considered competitive."  Machine malfunctions wouldn't by any chance help stem a potential red wave, would they?

Arizonans Report Issues With 'Broken' Dominion Voting Machines.  Maricopa County, the most populous county in Arizona, is already facing issues with voters turning in their ballots.  In one now viral video, a poll worker is shown informing a line of Arizonans waiting to cast their vote that their two tabulators are not working properly.

168,000 Georgians Moved Right Before The Midterms.  How Many Will Vote Illegally This Time?  Evidence gathered since 2020 indicates more than 12,000 Georgians may have cast illegal ballots in that presidential election.  A repeat analysis just completed on voter files shows thousands of residency issues involving Georgia voters, indicating a potential repeat of the illegal voting scenario in this year's midterm elections, according to an expert on voter data analysis.  While early efforts to bolster election integrity following the 2020 election have proved successful, much work remains.  Until that happens, the public will continue to question election results — and rightly so.  On Tuesday, voters across America will have a final chance to cast ballots for the 2022 midterm elections.  With control of the House and Senate at stake, several battleground states such as Georgia will find themselves in the spotlight again.

Here Are The States Where Election Machine Failures Are Reported So Far.  Reports of voting machine malfunctions are happening all over the US, from the west coast to the east coast.  For starters, Maricopa County is reporting broken voting machines in Anthem, which is said to be the 'deep red' part of Maricopa County:  Instead of tabulating their ballot directly, voters are being told to put their ballot into a box under the tabulator so that their ballot may be tabulated at a later time downtown.  Voters are told to just drop their ballot into the open door.  [Video clip]

Maricopa County Confirms Tabulators Are Malfunctioning on Election Day.  Authorities in Maricopa County, Arizona, confirmed Tuesday morning at a news conference that around 20 percent of the vote centers in the county are experiencing issues.  "In about 20 percent of the vote centers ... when people will go and try to run the ballot through this tabulator, maybe one out of every five or so, of those ballots are not going through," said Maricopa Board of Supervisors Chair Bill Gates.  "It's not like both of the tabulators in these 20 percent of locations are having these issues.  It might only be one."  Gates said that the problem is not preventing people from casting their ballot, saying that voters can deposit their ballot in a drop box.

Fetterman Campaign Sues Pennsylvania Election Officials To Have Ballots Without Dates And Incorrect Dates Counted.  Pennsylvania Democratic lieutenant governor John Fetterman's U.S. Senate campaign filed a lawsuit Monday against state election officials, arguing that mail ballots with an incorrect or blank date should be counted in Tuesday's election.  Plaintiffs have asked a federal judge to order all mail ballots to be counted regardless of the date voters pen on the envelope.  The lawsuit comes a week after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that officials should set aside and not count mail ballots with an incorrect or empty date.

Does Joe Biden Know The Fix Is In?  On November 3, 2020, as election night rolled into election morning, Jill and Joseph Biden walked out alone on stage to stand before a crowd of brand-new Jeeps.  "We feel good about where we are.  We really do," Joe Biden said to the occasional honk from the vehicles. [...] Yet, in the wee hours of the morning, here was Biden, standing confident.  "Feeling good... We really are.  We are still in the game in Georgia, although, that's not one we expected," Biden says and smirks slyly at the time.  "Feeling real good about Wisconsin and Michigan.  And by the way — it's going to take time to count the votes, but we are going to win Pennsylvania.  Talking to the folks in Philly, Allegheny county, and Scranton and they're really encouraged by the turnout and what they see...."  At the time, Biden was down by 700,000 votes in Pennsylvania with vote counting "paused" until the morning.  And yet here he was, smiling that crooked Cheshire cat smile.  Saying unequivocally that they were going to win.  How did he know?  It is fair to say that people had questions even before Donald Trump insinuated that there might have been funny business at hand.

Chaos in Pennsylvania voting Already: Voters line-up to fix mistakes after Supreme Court ruled inaccurate ballots will be thrown out.  Pennsylvania voters lined up for hours last night to fix voided mail-in and absentee ballots in a last-ditch effort to sway one of the closest races in the country between Democrat John Fetterman and Republican Mehmet Oz.  At Philadelphia City Hall, voters lined up for three hours to ensure their votes would be counted after a Supreme Court ruling last week canceled 3,800 mail-in and absentee ballots across the state.  Republicans have sued all over the country to cancel mailed votes that do not have dates written on their envelopes.

ABC News Explains Why a "Red Mirage" Will Occur Tuesday — Reveals Which States Democrats Are Going to Try to Steal.  ABC News explained why a "Red Mirage" will occur Tuesday on Election Day.  "[Republican candidates'] leads will dwindle, or crumble completely, after perceived "dumps" of votes are recorded by state election officials who count mail-in and absentee ballots in the days — or even weeks — following Election Day." ABC News said.  ABC News revealed which states the Democrats are going to steal with post-Election Day ballot counting.  "[The Red Mirage is] likely to occur in some of the same states where the phenomenon presented itself last cycle — in states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin — battleground states that also happen to feature some of the most hotly-contested races of the election season." ABC News said.

Pennsylvania Voters Line Up to Cast New Ballots as GOP Loses Lawsuit to Block Voters From Fixing Mail-In Ballots with Incorrect Dates.  Pennsylvania voters are lining up to cast new ballots after GOP efforts to block voters from fixing errors on their mail-in ballots failed.  The Pennsylvania Supreme Court last week invalidated thousands of ballots because of incorrect or missing dates.  Thousands of Pennsylvania voters were notified of the errors and given a chance to fix their ballots.  The line at City Hall in Philadelphia 'snaked outside the building,' according to the Washington Post.

Why Wait?  Fetterman Sues in Federal Court to Force PA to Count Undated Ballots.  Should mail-in-votes that are undated or incorrectly dated be counted in Tuesday's midterm elections?  Common sense, state law, and a Pennsylvania court all say "no," but Democrat Senate wannabe John Fetterman thinks otherwise and took his case to court Monday.  Fetterman, who's in a tight race (notice I didn't say "neck and neck") with Republican candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, joined the Democrats' U.S. House and Senate campaign arms and two Democratic voters to sue in a federal court in Pittsburgh, arguing that the handwritten date requirement is a burden and an attempt at voter suppression.

Watch for delayed election results.  The polls all say the same thing: Republicans will reclaim the House and Senate.  The Republicans know this.  The Democrats know this.  And most alarming, the political operatives know this. [...] What should concern Republicans now, given that victory is within reach?  Cheating.  The Democrats cheated their way into power in 2020, so look for some of the same techniques employed to rear their ugly heads again.

After the Election.  Barring a 3 A.M. multi-million ballot dump, the Republican Party is set to take control of both the House and the Senate.  From this result, I foresee two scenarios unfolding. [...] First and foremost, they'll blame their Useful Idiot, and before 2024 they'll [replace him] to make way for a more cognizant sock puppet.  They'll blame Big Tech for not sufficiently censoring "misinformation."  They'll blame suburban white women.  They'll blame nonexistent voter suppression.  They'll blame white supremacy, transphobia, and ableism.

Dem poll worker ejected for pre-selecting 'straight Dem ticket' on voting machine, calling Rs 'racist'.  An Indiana election office reportedly ejected a Democrat poll worker over allegations that he had pressured poll-goers against voting for certain candidates and even pre-selected Democratic candidates on a voting machine last week, local election officials told Fox News.  The incidents took place at a polling place in Carmel, Indiana, under the Hamilton County Election Office.  Hamilton County election administrator Beth Sheller declined to confirm the poll worker's identity in an interview with Fox News Digital, but detailed a report from the inspector at the polling location.  Sheller stated that the inspector had learned of two separate incidents that may constitute electioneering and election interference.  The poll worker, first identified by Chalkboard Review executive director Tony Kinnett as James Zheng, is now reportedly being investigated by the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, and Sheller says she hopes to see Zheng prosecuted.

Biden Makes It Official: Grand Theft Election II is On.  Since this "Big Lie" puts "our democracy ... under threat," Hunter's proud papa called for voters to be "patient" for "a few days" of vote delays.  Why?  He was preparing Americans for a repeat of the uncertainty that followed the last election while "all legitimate (read: manufactured) ballots" are counted in a "legal and orderly fashion" (meaning: in the dark of night with observers held at a distance) and Democrats are declared winners in multiple races within the margin of error.  The most likely settings for such shenanigans?  Exactly the same as in 2020:  Philly (Oz-Fetterman).  Atlanta (Walker-Warnock).  Detroit (Dixon-Whitmer).  Milwaukee (Michels-Evers).  Phoenix (Masters-Kelly).  And now, with accidental Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul stumbling neck-and-neck to the finish line against GOP challenger Lee Zeldin, let's add New York City for good measure.  2020 isn't the only time the Democrats have gotten down with this particular dance.  A week after the razor-thin 2008 Minnesota U.S. Senate election, the Wall Street Journal noted, "When Minnesotans woke up last Wednesday, Republican Senator Norm Coleman led (comedian Al) Franken by 725 votes.  By that evening, he was ahead by only 477.  As of yesterday, Mr. Coleman's margin stood at 206.  This lopsided bleeding of Republican votes is passing strange considering that the official recount hasn't even begun."

Detroit Election Officials Signed 2020 Contract to Use China-Linked Konnech Systems to Mass Scan Absentee Ballots and Check Ballot Signatures.  Michigan Judge the Honorable Timothy M. Kenny recently held a hearing on signature validation in overseas ballots.  During the hearing in the 3rd Circuit Court of MI Judge Kenny repeatedly berated Attorney Dan Hartman and allowed the defense lawyer David Fink to go off on political rants about "right-wing fever dreams" and "election deniers." (around the 3 hour mark)  Attorney Fink accused Hartman of racism despite the fact that the lawsuit was filed by Kristina Karamo who is a black female conservative running for Secretary of State in Michigan.  Detroit Election Consultant Chris Thomas explained during the hearing how mailed absentee ballot signatures are verified.  When Hartman asked how Detroit verifies signatures on ballots emailed to military overseas, Judge Kinney blew up at him and suggested he was attempting to disenfranchise the votes of military members, adding that he has a son who served 5 years overseas, which of course, had no relevance to the case.  This was a bogus argument.

USPS District Mgr Confirms:  MI SOS Jocelyn Benson LIED When She Claimed It's "Normal" and "Legal Activity" For Postal Workers to Drop Stacks of Absentee Ballots Into Drop Boxes.  On June 13, The Gateway Pundit and 100 Percent Fed Up released Detroit drop box surveillance footage showing a US Postal worker wearing credentials around his neck and wearing what appears to be blue jeans, exiting an official US Post Office vehicle with a large stack of ballots.  The ballots were deposited on October 26, 2020, SIX days before the general election.  As he leaves the US Postal vehicle, the passenger heads to the absentee ballot drop box, where he drops multiple ballots into the drop box while discreetly using his cell phone to take photos or a video of his activity.  He's holding the cell phone in his hand in the screenshot below.  [Not shown here.]  The incident occurred at a drop box in front of the Liberty Temple Baptist Church at 1300 E. Seven Mile in Detroit.  There is a US Post Office located only two miles away from the drop box used by the passenger of the US Postal vehicle.

Election "Deniers" are Election Realists.  The mainstream media would have us think that to believe the 2020 election was stolen, you must be a fringe character, a person who'd protest with a painted face beneath a fur hat and horns.  But a new poll reflects a very different reality:  Americans are more likely than not to believe the 2020 presidential contest was rigged or stolen.  In fact, it's people who insist that the election was valid and can't imagine how anyone could suppose otherwise who are quite the minority — less than a quarter of the nation.

Florida woman arrested by election crimes unit, faces felony charges for voting in two states.  The new Florida election crimes unit is on the job sniffing out fraud with the all-important midterm elections only days away and has announced the arrest of a woman who faces felony charges for casting ballots in two states in the same election cycle.  On Friday, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement announced that 55-year-old Cheryl Ann Leslie of Loxahatchee, a registered Democrat, was charged with voting in both Florida and Alaska in the 2020 state and federal primary elections.

How many people visit (or reside in) both Florida and Alaska in the same year?

If Republicans Win On Tuesday, Thank The Election Integrity Movement.  If Republican candidates do as well as expected on Tuesday, they can credit the new, widespread, and coordinated effort to begin securing U.S. elections, helping give candidates the best opportunity possible to win a fair fight in the new voting environment of mail-in balloting.  The Republican National Committee, other party entities, and dozens of public interest election nonprofit groups built over the last two years a multimillion-dollar election integrity infrastructure that passed laws improving voter ID and other election security measures, defended those laws from legal attacks by Democrats, and sued states and localities that failed to follow the law.  They also recruited, educated, trained, and placed tens of thousands of new election observers and other workers throughout the long midterm voting season.  And they did it all in one of the most hostile propaganda environments on record.

Absentee Ballot Fraud Uncovered in Battleground State, Election Worker Has Been Fired.  Absentee ballot fraud has been uncovered in a 2022 midterms battleground state.  The alleged plot involves a Milwaukee election official requesting military ballots and sending them to a Republican lawmaker.  A Milwaukee election official could face criminal charges accusing her of fraudulently requesting absentee ballots reserved for members of the military.  "Milwaukee Election Commission Deputy Director Kimberly Zapata, 45, of South Milwaukee was fired by Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson this week after Johnson discovered she had requested the ballots," the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

The Big Lie about 'The Big Lie'.  With only a few days left until the 2022 midterms, Newsweek laments a new poll by Redfield and Wilton Strategies showing that 40 percent of Americans still believe that the 2020 presidential election was "rigged or stolen."  This is presented as a shocking revelation about the number of Americans who still buy into the "Big Lie," despite its "being proven false," according to the article.  Newsweek buries this particular poll's more interesting observations.  For example, only 36 percent of respondents disagree that the 2020 election was rigged or stolen.  Of that group, more than one in three find it "understandable" that others might believe that the election was rigged or stolen.  Another 15 percent of respondents neither agreed nor disagreed, and 8 percent signified that they "didn't know." [...] A far more accurate way to characterize these data, though, is to recognize that there are more Americans confident that the election was rigged than there are Americans who are confident that it was all on the up and up. [...] After a lifetime of being accustomed to, except in very rare and localized instances, elections being decided on Election Day, it was demanded that we accept, without question, the unprecedented circuit breaker that we witnessed on Election Night in several key states.  We watched helplessly as the outcome shifted to conform with the presaged and oft-parroted notion of a "red mirage," with each new batch of undiscovered-and-uncounted-on-election-night ballots that became newly-discovered-and-totally-legitimate votes in the Democrat cities of crucial swing states, like Philadelphia, Atlanta, Milwaukee, and Detroit, in the days following.

We Must Restore America's Faith in Its Elections.  A Monmouth University poll released in late September 2022 found that fully one-third (32%) of all Americans and 61% of Republicans still believe election interference was the cause of Donald Trump's defeat — despite 23 months of non-stop and increasingly threatening media propaganda, a ludicrous Congressional show trial of "mostly peaceful" election protesters, and even calls by Democrat politicians to make questioning election results a crime.  According to a 2021 Rasmussen Reports survey, fully 56% of respondents said "it's likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 41% who said it's 'very likely.'"  These are the incalcitrant "election deniers" Joe Biden has denounced as "semi-fascists" and a "threat to democracy" — including nearly 300 candidates for elected office across America.  How can people hold such a ludicrous opinion, especially when every corporate-owned news outlet in America, and dozens of courts and citizen-watch organizations, insist the opposite; namely, that America's elections have never been more secure and fair?

Arizona State Senator Sonny Borrelli Says The 2020 Election Was "Uncertifiable".  Arizona State Senator Sonny Borrelli appeared on Steve Bannon's War Room today following yesterday's bombshell presentation on voter fraud in the 2020 Election.  Borrelli reviewed the findings from yesterday with Steve Bannon, and he said the 2020 election in Arizona was "uncertifiable." [...] A team in Maricopa County reviewed voter registration forms and compared them with signatures on over 100,000 ballot envelopes, and they identified a staggering 20% error rate in signature verification.

Wisconsin Court Shoots Down Attempt to Change Rules for Absentee Ballots Before Midterms.  A Wisconsin judge on Wednesday dealt a blow to a group in the state who hoped to change rules governing absentee ballots, denying their request that local election clerks accept absentee ballots that contain partial addresses of witnesses.  Dane County Circuit Judge Juan Colas said in his ruling that in the past 56 years that Wisconsin elections have been conducted, and absentee ballots counted, they have apparently been done so "without a legally binding definition of the witness address."  The judge noted that the nearly 60 years of precedent was enough to determine whether an absentee ballot has enough of a witness address to count.

The Midterm Election Rigging Is Underway.  Election Day results, like clean streets and easily available products in supermarkets, have become artifacts of a recent glorious past.  Don't count on finding eggs and milk at the market or finding out who won the election on Election Day.  The 2022 midterms, like the 2020 elections, are a work in progress that will, one day, when the right ballots are found, elect somebody.  Acting Secretary of State Leigh Chapman, the leftist election rigging activist appointed by Gov. Tom Wolf, warned that it will take days to determine who won.  At a "virtual press conference", the virtual election boss, who hasn't actually been confirmed by the legislature, warned that it would take "several days worth of work" to determine who won what.  And who didn't.  Chapman, a veteran of The Advancement Project, funded by Soros and the Ford Foundation, which worked against voter ID rules to stop voter fraud, and Let America Vote, a leftist group to eliminate election security regulations, urged voters to "feel confident in our election system and in the final results." Nothing creates confidence in an election system like a radical partisan activist being put in charge of it and then warning that the FBI will target any critics.

Biden Says We Won't Know the Results of the Midterm Election Until Days After Polls Close November 8th.  It would appear that national democrats are setting the stage for fraudulent ballot collection again.  During his insufferable remarks today about Democracy vs. Autocracy, a speech fraught with cognitive dissonance, Joe Biden proactively warns Americans that the results from the midterm election will not be known until days after the election takes place.  [Video clip]

The Fix Is In: Joe Bidens Warns Americans Several Races Will Not Be Called for Several Days After the Election So "Be Patient".  In an unprecedented move, Joe Biden used the Office of the President to smear Republicans just days before the 2022 midterm election.  It was 25 straight minutes of attacks on President Trump, Republicans, MAGA supporters, and the American people.  This was Joe Biden's attempt to move the needle before the elections next week.  At one point during his speech, Joe Biden warned Americans that it will take several days to call the elections.

The latest scheme to rig elections In Michigan.  The witches brew of election rigging continues to bubble over.  Michigan citizens will soon decide the fate of election integrity and security in their state as the Nov. 8 mid-term election approaches.  Proposal 2, known as the Right to Voting Policies Amendment or more commonly, the Promote the Vote initiative, is a cauldron of potential election malfeasance.  If it passes, it will become embedded in the state constitution.  We have previously discussed egregious aspects of this proposal.  However, one little known aspect of Proposal 2 is that it would permit the combining of precincts together through absentee voter counting boards.  This would result in the loss of precinct level results.

Biden to deliver unscheduled DNC speech at Union Station near Capitol.  President Biden will deliver remarks on "preserving and protecting our democracy" at a Democratic National Committee event in Washington, D.C., White House officials and the DNC said Wednesday.  The president is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. ET at the Columbus Club in Union Station, where he will address "the threat of election deniers and those who seek to undermine faith in voting and democracy," according to a DNC advisory.

A New York Judge Strikes A Mighty Blow For Election Integrity Against Corrupt State Government.  New York is the state many conservatives love to hate because of its stridently anti-Second Amendment laws and public policies (most recently, reflected in a new law undermining the recent U.S. Supreme Court's Bruen decision that declared unconstitutional the state's century-old Sullivan Law that made it next to impossible for a law-abiding citizen to obtain a concealed carry permit).  However, an Oct. 21 decision from Saratoga County trial court Judge Dianne Freestone, reminds us that even in the dark "blue" state of New York, reason can prevail, despite the overwhelmingly Democrat state legislature, the ultra-liberal governor, and the far-left wing state attorney general.  The judge's decision resulted from a constitutional challenge to an absentee voting law passed by the legislature in Jan. 2022.

The Democrats' 'election denier' sophistry.  [Scroll down] The editor at the Erie Times starts out promisingly when he begins by admitting that "The term election denier is a loaded one, but the definition isn't always clear."  That is correct.  Will the Erie Times will provide a neutral (fair) definition of "election denialism"?  On the contrary, the editor explains that "it's important to define it for the purposes of this USA TODAY package detailing candidates ... we've labeled 'election deniers.'"  That is, the editor narrows down the range of "election deniers" to "this year".  Miraculously, therefore, the expression does not apply to Al Gore in 2000, Hillary Clinton in 2016 or Stacy Abrams in 2018!"  None of them, by definition, have committed the unforgivable sin of "election denialism". [...] In addition, an "election denier" is, by definition, a Trump supporter in 2020!  How convenient!  The Democrats win automatically.  No questions, no investigations, no discussions and, most of all, no free speech permitted in this case.  Just check the dictionary!  Case closed!

Election fraud deniers at the Wall Street Journal.  A number of election fraud deniers, including the Editors of The Wall Street Journal, have been committing serial cognitive dissonance.  In a series of editorials, the Journal's Editors have, on the one hand, claimed there is "no evidence" of massive voter fraud and that everyone questioning the legitimacy of the 2020 election should be quiet and stop indulging in the "big lie".  On the other hand, however, they have admitted that there were numerous irregularities that need to be addressed, in particular the fact that in State after State, including all the crucial swing States, the rules were changed at the behest of the Democrats without the approval of the State legislatures.  Bypassing the legislatures is illegal and unconstitutional.  By what logic is the conduct of an election by illegal rules not massive election fraud?

Voter Attempts to Drop Off Ballot and Finds Keys Left Inside the Lock of the County Ballot Drop-Off Box.  We're already seeing an example of either gross negligence or deliberate tomfoolery regarding early voting.  This morning we received a video from California where we can see that a voter in Woodland Hills finds both keys to the ballot drop box in the locks when dropping off the ballot.  The voter did the right thing and called it in, an hour + later the keys were still in the same spot.

PA Supreme Court Rules Undated Mail Ballots Can't Be Counted.  The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Tuesday sided with an argument made by Republicans in their lawsuit seeking to prevent the counting of improperly completed ballots in next week's general election, throwing out a lower court's ruling that would have allowed PA election officials to count absentee and mail-in ballots that were not correctly dated and signed.  PA's Supreme Court justices vacated the 3rd US Circuit Court of Appeals' decision that would have allowed the counting of ballots that were not completed as the Keystone State election laws require, and ruled that the "Pennsylvania county boards of elections are hereby ordered to refrain from counting any absentee and mail-in ballots received for the November 8, 2022 general election that are contained in undated or incorrectly dated outer envelopes."

True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht, former board member Arrested for not outing informant.  True the Vote leaders Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips were taken into custody by US Marshalls on Monday for refusing to identify a confidential informant to a judge.  Federal Judge Kenneth Hoyt found both of them in contempt of court after they declined to out the informant, according to independent journalist Ivory Hecker. [...] The judge ordered that Engelbrecht and Phillips be held in custody for at least 24 hours or until they give up the informant, according to The Post Millennial.

Catherine Englebrecht and Gregg Phillips [have been] Put in Jail for Refusing to Outline Sources Who Revealed Konnech U.S. Election Data Transfer to China.  True the Vote founder Catherine Englebrecht and election data security analyst, Gregg Phillips, have been held in contempt of court and placed in jail for failing to outline the participants in a 2020 hotel discussion that revealed the Konnech election data compromise that was transmitted to Chinese networks.  On October 4th, the CEO of Konnech — a company specializing in proprietary PollChief software to manage election workers — was arrested.  Konnech Corporation Chief Executive Officer Eugene Yu was arrested for exploiting access to U.S. election data, including election worker information, and transferring the files to China.  The information that led to Yu's arrest was the information given to the FBI and first revealed to Englebrecht and Phillips.  However, the Konnech corporation filed a civil lawsuit against Englebrecht and Phillips claiming defamation.  A Texas federal judge allowed the civil lawsuit to continue despite the arrest of Eugene Yu.

When is a fact check not a fact check?  The story was big:  Pennsylvania had sent 255,000 mail-in ballots to unverified voters.  The basis for this claim was the fact that the statewide computer system showed that 255,000 mail-in ballots that had already been mailed had the designation "NV" or "not verified."  The AP countered this claim with a "fact check" claiming this assertion is False.  Except that, when you read through the AP article, Republicans are correct:  255,000 mail-in and absentee ballots went to people who did not prove their identity at the time they applied for those ballots. [...] The AP rates the story as "false," but then, through a wall of words, proceeds to validate the claim. [...] The greatest likelihood is that ballots will come in and, whether they were verified or not, counties will treat them as valid.

The 'Big Lie'? A Democrat forte.  Democrat Stacey Abrams still purports to believe she won the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race.  Abrams, who lost by more than 50,000 votes, once told Axios that she doesn't want the American people to be in a place "where we cannot legitimately question" and criticize voting systems in order to improve them.  Try to "legitimately question" the 2020 presidential election, and you will be kicked off social media, labeled a "denier," otherwise ostracized, canceled, and labeled in need of psychiatric attention.  Democrats were sure that the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections were stolen from them by way of Republican shenanigans.  And they spent years telling us all that Trump stole the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton with the aid of those damn Russians.  Corruption was rampant, election integrity nonexistent.  There was no other way Trump could have beaten Hillary, you see.  Yet, they boldly assert that the 2020 presidential election was accurate [...]

Pennsylvania's Department of State Has Sent Out 249,000 Ballots to Unverified Voters in 2022 Election.  In Pennsylvania, the Department of State has allowed at least 249,000 unverified voters to receive mail-in ballots for the 2022 general election, owing to an odd process for verifying the identity of those requesting mail-in ballots, where people vote first and verify their identification later.  The Department of State also recently changed directives for county election boards, creating procedural confusion and drawing fire from 15 Pennsylvania House members in the form of a letter demanding that the department immediately correct its guidance and tell counties they may not count the ballots of unverified voters until proof of ID is received.  There are two things to know about voter registration.  First, the state must follow the federal Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA), a law that requires anyone registering to vote in federal elections to provide identification in the form of a driver's license number or the last four digits of their Social Security number.  And second, HAVA requires that states verify the accuracy of the information provided by the applicant by matching their ID information to the state motor vehicle database or the federal Social Security number verification system.

Two leaders of True the Vote jailed by federal judge for contempt of court.  Federal marshals escorted the leaders of True the Vote out of a Houston courtroom on Monday morning and into a holding cell.  Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips have been held in contempt of court for refusing to release the name of a person of interest in the defamation and computer hacking case against them, who they claim, without proof, is a confidential FBI informant.  They will remain in jail until they release the name of the man.

2000 Mules Investigators Gregg Phillips and True the Vote Founder Arrested and Taken Into Custody One Week Before Mid-Term Election.  This morning, Federal Judge Kenneth Hoyt held True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht and True the Vote investigator Gregg Phillips were arrested and held in contempt of court over their refusal to identify a confidential informant who helped them obtain information that led to the discovery and later, evidence that the E. Lansing, MI based election software company Konnech was storing election-related data on servers in China. [...] Engelbrecht and Phillips were the duo behind the bombshell documentary 2000 Mules that used geofencing data to uncover an alleged massive ballot-harvesting operation in several key states across America in 2020.

We really need to talk about Democrats' efforts to pre-delegitimize our elections.  Democrats have been doing this for decades, declaring certain elected Republicans frauds and imposters.  It's not that they truly believe the 2000, 2004, and 2016 presidential races, the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race, etc., were rigged.  Rather, they understand that casting doubt on election outcomes weakens the Republican position, putting duly elected officials in a state of constant defense.  Democrats are taking this astonishingly cynical strategy one step further.  They're questioning the legitimacy of GOP victories even before the votes have even been cast.  "Right-wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election.  And they're not making a secret of it," two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said this month.  "The right-wing-controlled Supreme Court may be poised to rule on giving state legislatures the power to overturn presidential elections."

Big ballot-havesting operation busted in Orlando, Florida.  Ballot harvesting, according to the California Democrats who'd like to take it national, is an innocent practice where union members and activists, some of them illegally present in the country, do voters the favor, see, of helping voters fill out their ballots and then collecting those ballots for them so that they need never go to the polls.  They call it "a new service."  It's part of their "make every vote count" agenda, and who could be against that?  But out in Florida, where there's still some semblance of objectivity, investigators found another story. [...] TheCoercive operatives with money on their minds thug up to people's doorsteps and make them fill out ballots to their liking, or the ballots get thrown away, and you can bet the voters go on some sort of list.  If they hand over their ballots, they can get their votes changed, they can get them discarded, they can get silenced and intimidated into voting the political operatives' way or else.  One wonders how many Republicans would have won in that Disney-happy area had there not been this ballot-harvesting operation going on with nobody saying anything.  How many bad laws since passed would not have seen the light of day if the elections didn't have this kind of cheating?

Democrat blows whistle on alleged ballot harvesting scheme, Florida opens criminal probe.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' new election crimes unit has recommended state police open a full criminal investigation into a Democrat whistleblower's detailed complaint of a long-running, widespread ballot harvesting operation in the African-American communities in politically important central Florida.  Former Orange County Commissioner candidate Cynthia Harris filed a sworn affidavit in late August with the Secretary of State's office alleging that illegal operations to collect third-party ballots have been going on for years in the Orlando area where voting activists are paid $10 for each ballot they collect.  She described an intricate system funded by liberal leaning organizations that dispatch ballot brokers into black communities to pressure voters to turn over their ballots.  The $10 fee per ballot is divvied up among the parties who help complete the harvesting.  The collection and delivery of ballots by third parties is illegal in Florida.

Election fraud in Pennsylvania — and how to stop it.  If you believe that there was significant electoral fraud in the 2020 election, the big question you have today is: "What's changed?"  What will make the 2022 midterms any different from 2020? This is even more pressing in places where there is any question of fraud in the primaries.  It's late, but there is still time to address the problem, as we must if we wish to avoid seeing our representative republic — in which voters choose their representatives — suffer a fatal blow.  We write as citizens who have published a book filled with hard, physical evidence that the 2020 election was stolen.

Judge allows group to monitor local ballot dropboxes in Arizona.  A federal judge on Friday declined to prohibit a local group from monitoring ballot drop boxes in Arizona.  "The Court cannot craft an injunction without violating the First Amendment," District Court Judge Michael Liburdi wrote.  He did not end the case and said he would allow the Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans to again make a case against Clean Elections USA, per Politico.  The ruling follows reports of armed and masked individuals monitoring ballot boxes in Arizona counties ahead of the midterms, the outlet noted.  Ballot drop boxes have long attracted scrutiny from election integrity watchdogs over the potential for fraud.

[A] Nevada County [has been] Ordered to Stop Hand Count of Ballots.  As previously reported, hand counts of ballots were supposed to take place in rural Nye County, Nevada.  The Nye County Commission had voted to ditch electronic voting machines and use hand-counted paper ballots.  The 4-1 vote led to the resignation of Nye County Clerk, Sandra "Sam" Merlino.  The commission then voted to appoint an interim clerk, Mark Kampf, to oversee the election.  Kampf is a Republican on the midterm ballot running for the county clerk seat.  In August, the Nevada Secretary of State held a virtual workshop for the public's input on proposed regulations for tabulating ballots by hand, ahead of a virtual hearing on August 26.  During the August hearing, an amendment was prompted by Kampf's opposition to the proposed language during the workshop.  The regulation should only apply to counties that use only hand counting, while Kampf's proposal runs ballots through mechanical tabulators and checks results by hand count.

DOJ's election plan raises threat of 'selective enforcement' against red states, watchdog warns.  The Justice Department this week outlined the steps it will take on Election Day to ensure a fair election process, but a government watchdog is warning that the plan leaves out critical details that open the door to selective enforcement against red states.  The Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) said the lack of detail in the DOJ announcement likely means "selective transparency and selective enforcement, something we've come to expect from the Biden administration's two-tiered approach to justice."  The Justice Department released a summary of its "comprehensive" Election Day plan Wednesday and said it is aimed at ensuring that "all qualified voters have the opportunity to cast their ballots and have their votes counted free of discrimination, intimidation or fraud in the election process.

Democrats are Aboard the Big Data Titanic.  Nobody ever changed the game in any industry, or election, by applying demonstrably obsolete technology. [...] Mike Lindell and Sheriff David Clarke asked us to run the Wisconsin voter rolls with our disruptive Fractal technology.  Voter integrity teams were ferociously analyzing state voter rolls with SQL, relational, Mongo, Excel type systems — the equivalent of emptying a swimming pool with a spoon.  We loaded Wisconsin and within hours had it in their hands — no charge — finding registered voters living in laundromats and UPS boxes.  Word spread and we now run about 15 or 20 mostly swing states.

After the Elections.  [Scroll down] The people who are currently in charge will cheat in the upcoming election.  There can be no reasonable doubt about this.  The question isn't one of if — it's only how.  It is a question of whether or not they'll be successful, or whether or not enough people of our side will show they have the functional remnants of a backbone.  Whatever shakes out after the circus of mail-in ballots, ballot-harvesting, and all the other tricks we've come to expect — we must remember that the leadership of the Democrat party does not believe in elections even in principle.  They will not consider any manipulation of the electoral process to be cheating.  In their view, they're entitled to win.  If I eat a piece of steak, I do not moralize at all about the unfair slaughter of the beast that it was taken out of.  Our political rights, in the eyes of most of the political class, are something on the order of civil rights of cattle.  This is to say — they are rights they don't believe exist.  Now, it naturally follows from this situation that we need to stop expecting a fair win just as we no longer believe in the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus.  Our victories are going to be denied; litigated; and, if at all possible, overturned.

Hilarious: leftists are pivoting on election denial in real-time.  Hillary Clinton jumped the gun predicting a plan to steal the next Presidential election, pivoting to the dreaded scourge of our time 'election denial.'  Hillary Clinton recently predicted that 'Right-wing extremists' already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election, in a story overed by Sky News Australia.  But none of the socialists of the American media reported this aside from Mediaite, why?

Dem Blows Whistle On Widespread Orlando Area Ballot-Harvesting Operation In Black Communities.  For many Americans, the Dinesh D'Souza 2000 Mules movie, based on investigative work by True the Vote founder Catherine Englebrecht and Gregg Phillips, tracked thousands of ballot mules across several key swing states in 2020 using geofencing tracing data was an eye-opener.  Without naming names, over the fear of being sued, Gregg Phillips has repeatedly stated that the stash houses they've identified that were used by ballot harvesters to make their mule operations possible were ALL funded by left-leaning NGOs (non-governmental organizations).  During their testimony in front of the AZ Senate on June 2, Engelbrecht and Phillips released a bombshell video featuring investigator Gregg Phillips and a whistleblower in Yuma, Co., Arizona, who revealed how the elections were stolen in her community.

How many early voters want their votes back?  On Tuesday night, we finally saw Lt.  Governor John Fetterman debate GOP candidate Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania.  It was painful to watch.  By the end, I felt sorry for Fetterman and was angry at his family for allowing this to happen.  How does a wife allow permit this?  How badly does she want to be a senator's wife?  According to Reuters, Democrats are in massive damage control.

Pennsylvania: 255,000 Unverified New Voters [were] Sent Ballots.  Pennsylvania Democrat officials sent out 240,000 255,000 ballots to people they could not verify either by their Social Security or Driver's License numbers.  The ballots should never have been sent out to these voters.  Fifteen Republican State Representatives sent a letter to Acting Secretary of the Commonwealth Leigh Chapman after they discovered that over 240,000 illicit ballots were sent out in the state prior to the 2022 midterm elections.  Deputy Secretary Jonathan Marks testified in September before the Pennsylvania House that counties are responsible to verify the voter ID when a completed ballot arrive to the county.  The counties argued that this was nonsense.  The ID must be verified before a ballot is even sent out.

The Left's Taxpayer-Funded Voter Registration Machine.  Perhaps the greatest trick the left ever pulled was convincing conservatives there was ever anything nonpartisan about conducting elections.  In the battle over election integrity, one of the least-discussed but increasingly important groups is the little-known Electronic Registration Information Center — better known as "ERIC."  ERIC is a private 501(c)(3) organization, not a government agency, yet it has incredible access to sensitive information on tens of millions of voters across 30 states and the District of Columbia.  ERIC matches death information published by the Social Security Administration to an individual voter's full name, date of birth, address, phone number, driver's license number, and partial Social Security Number provided by state departments of motor vehicles (DMVs) to form a picture of where a voter has lived and registered to vote.  It's unknown exactly how many people are in ERIC's system, but together those 30 states represent nearly 204 million people — 61 percent of the country's total population.

Delaware Supreme Court Strikes Down State's Vote-by-Mail and Same-Day Voter Registration.  Judicial Watch reacted today [10/20/2022] to the recent move by the Delaware Supreme Court to strike down the state's vote-by-mail and same-day voter registration statutes for violating the Delaware Constitution.  In making its ruling, the court effectively concurs with the amicus curiae brief Judicial Watch submitted in the case, which argues the Delaware statute impermissibly expands those practices far beyond the limits set in the Delaware Constitution.  The October 7 decision comes in the case Albence v Higgin et al. (DE Vote by Mail 342,2022), in which the court considered the constitutionality of two state laws passed by the Delaware General Assembly that attempted to grant every voter the opportunity to vote by mail and register to vote up to the day of the general election.

A Constitutional Crisis Is Brewing in Pennsylvania Over Mail-In Ballots.  As RedState previously reported, the Supreme Court vacated a state court decision requiring Pennsylvania to count un-dated mail-in ballots.  The plain letter of the law requires that a mail-in ballot must be filled, signed, and dated in order to be counted.  Despite that, Democrat state officials have pledged to defy the law, giving guidance to counties that they not only should un-dated ballots be counted, but they aren't even required to be sequestered pending further legal action.  Their reasoning?  That voters shouldn't be disenfranchised based on a "technical violation."  Who gets to decide what "technical violations" can be ignored?  That would seem to be a dangerous road to go down in regards to simply shunning the law based on an arbitrary judgment by a partisan state official.  Pennsylvania's mail-in voting law isn't ambiguous.  It pointedly says that ballots must be dated to be counted.  It's incredibly revealing (and somewhat shocking) that Democrats in the state don't even try to pretend they have a real legal case.

Report: Half of Pennsylvania Vote-by-Mail Ballots [were] Cast Before Fetterman's Disastrous Debate.  Nearly half of all vote-by-mail ballots in Pennsylvania had already been cast before Tuesday night's U.S. Senate debate, which was judged a disaster — even by Democrats — after Lt. Gov. John Fetterman (D), recovering from a stroke, struggled to form coherent sentences.  Fetterman had sought to avoid a debate, and his campaign has restricted his public appearances.. When he finally agreed to one, Democrats sought to delay the debate until ballots were already being cast by mail, since Democrats are more likely to use that method and more of the party's vote would already be cast.  However, given that 82% of viewers said that Republican nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz won the debate, it is likely that some of those Democratic would make a different choice today.

The Editor says...
Early voting is just wrong.  So many things happen in the last few days before an election.  Voting early is like half of a jury declaring a verdict in the middle of a trial, and the other half waiting to see all the evidence.

Democrat PACs Are Already Tracking 2022 Midterm Votes Cast, By Party, By Age, By County, and Gender — Why Is This Allowed?  Obviously, the Republican Party was caught flat-footed on Election Day on November 3, 2020, when President Trump exceeded all expectations and gained the most votes ever for a sitting president but ended up losing the election several days later in the greatest theft in US history to a corrupt, imbecile who spent most of his time in his basement during the campaign.  For some reason, Ronna McDaniel did not resign in shame at the time.  She should have.  And, do not forget, when President Trump called supporters to the Ellipse in Washington DC on January 6th, one million patriotic Americans turned out in the cold while the GOP elites met at a Ritz Carlton resort on Amelia Island instead. [...] Early voting has started in several states including Arizona.  Democrats, with Joe Biden, were able to manufacture enough ballots following election day to steal the state in 2020.  And we now have proof they are tracking all of the votes cast so far in Arizona.

Rural Arizona county votes to hand-count ballots despite legal threats from Dem candidate Katie Hobbs.  A rural Arizona county is bucking the system.  Refusing to bow to pressure from the left and despite dire warnings of litigation, the southern Arizona county added a step to "protect their voters from potential fraud."  The Cochise County Board of Supervisors, situated 90 miles southeast of Tucson, voted 2-1 to approve a measure requiring a full hand count following the November 8 election.  During the four-hour meeting, including public testimony, Republicans Tom Crosby and Peggy Judd voted for the measure drafted by Crosby, while Democrat Ann English voted against it.

Election Denial Will Win.  All indications now are that the Democrats are finally about to pay for using hate of Donald Trump as a substitute for governing for two years, just as, for four years prior to that, they used Trump hate as a substitute for normal opposition.  The entire fabric of myths, frauds, and defamations that the national political media have conveniently held up as a safety net for the Democratic Party and this terribly incompetent administration is about to disappear, and the Democrats will finally carry the can for 14 years of incompetence and venality — 10 failed years under Barack Obama and Joe Biden, with a four-year interlude when frenzied antagonism to the Trump administration was a divertissement of shamefully unconstitutional and obstructive opposition.  The greatest liberation of all in the national purgation that now seems likely in the midterm elections in two weeks will be the debunking of the totalitarian fiction that the 2020 election was unquestionably fair.

'Pre-denying an election?' Hillary issues warning of right-wing plot to steal the White House in 2024.  The tide has decidedly shifted against Democrats in the crucial midterm elections that are the first national referendum on their disastrous one-party rule since Joe Biden took over and the focus could soon shift to protecting their control of the White House with failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton taking the lead in pre-denying the results two years in advance.  On Monday, the embittered sore loser who blamed her 2016 historic loss to political newcomer Donald J. Trump on everyone and everything except her own failures to even attempt to appeal to working-class voters in the Rust Belt, posted a creepy pre-Halloween video to social media claiming — without a smidgen of evidence — that there is a vast right-wing conspiracy to steal the presidency in 2024, lighting the spark for a narrative that will likely soon spread like wildfire.

White House Claims Voter Suppression in Georgia, With No Evidence.  During the daily briefing at the White House Tuesday afternoon, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked about record voter turnout in Georgia just two weeks out from Election Day.  When asked specifically about President Joe Biden calling new voter integrity laws in the state "Jim Crow 2.0," Jean-Pierre claimed suppression is still present even with record numbers.  New numbers released Monday from Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger confirm the state's new voter integrity laws, passed last year and signed by Republican Governor Brian Kemp, have juiced record turnout just two weeks away from Election Day.

Federal Lawsuit Filed to Prevent Ballot Drop Box Watchers.  On Monday, a lawsuit filed by two organizations in federal court asked a judge to prevent members of Clean Elections USA from being "within sight" of ballot drop boxes in Arizona.  Plaintiffs Voto Latino and Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans represented by Elias Law Group claim that Clean Elections USA's founder and members are intimidating voters.  Though, Attorney Daniel Arrellano has not alleged violence.  Arrellano implored U.S. District Court Judge John Tuchi to act immediately with just 15 days remaining in the election.  The plaintiffs claim that some members of the group are known to openly carry firearms or wear tactical gear.  The lawsuit comes after a string of reports last week of real or imagined intimidation, with three incident reports referred from the AZ Secretary of State to the AZ Attorney General and US Department of Justice.

RNC Launches 73 Election Integrity Lawsuits Across 20 States.  In the year 2022 alone, the Republican National Committee (RNC) has filed 73 different lawsuits in 20 different states, alleging various violations of election procedure and resulting in several key victories, with two weeks to go before the midterms.  As reported by Fox News, the lawsuits focus on such matters as the counting of ballots that are either undated or mismarked, as well as the rights of poll watchers to directly observe the counting of ballots.  The large-scale legal action by the RNC comes after widespread accusations of voter fraud in the 2020 election cycle, which many believe was enough to swing the results away from President Donald J. Trump and in favor of Democrat Joe Biden.

The DOJ Is Hiding Information About Biden's Attempts To Interfere In U.S. Elections.  The Department of Justice (DOJ) is slow-walking its response to a federal court order mandating that the agency forfeit records pertaining to President Joe Biden's March 2021 executive order that directed federal agencies to develop plans for federal interference in state election administration.  On Thursday evening, the agency filed a motion for summary judgment with the Fort Myers Division of the U.S. Middle District Court of Florida in an attempt to conceal communication records related to Executive Order 14019, which required all federal departments to "consider ways to expand citizens' opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process."  In law, "summary judgment" is a decision issued by a court based on statements and evidence for one party against another without going to a full trial.

DOJ Cites 'Public Confusion' as Reason to Keep Documents on Biden Order Secret.  The Biden administration is claiming "presidential communications privilege" in federal court to prevent release of information about an executive order instructing federal agencies to help register more voters.  In a filing late Thursday, the Justice Department argues that releasing information on President Joe Biden's order would cause "public confusion."  The Foundation for Government Accountability, a conservative watchdog group, sued the Justice Department in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida to get information about how the department would implement Executive Order 14019, which Biden signed in March 2021.  As previously reported by The Daily Signal, Biden's order requires every federal agency to promote voter registration and voter participation.

The Democrats' Bizarro World.  [Scroll down] Another foundation of our democratic republic is free and fair elections.  While money has long been problematic for our electoral process, Americans used to at least be able to count on the candidate receiving the most votes being elected.  No more, thanks to the deliberate efforts of the Democrat Party to gain and hold onto power, whatever it takes.  Long known for their urban political machinery and "voting irregularities" stretching back to the Boss Tweed era in the late 1800s, the media pretends to be shocked at the mere suggestion that their Democrat Party pals would ever stoop to such a thing.  The right to vote is a privilege bordering on the sacred, and as long as there are provisions for people unable to go to the polls on election day (the sick, military personnel serving overseas, etc.), then it should be a point of honor for Americans to get themselves to the polls to vote.  But instead of extremely limited mail-in ballots, distributed only by individual name to eligible voters who request them, in 2020 the Democrats mailed out millions — that's right, millions — of blank ballots in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, North Carolina, Nevada, et al.

RNC has launched 73 election lawsuits in 20 states: 'Most litigious' election cycle.  The Republican National Committee (RNC) has launched 73 lawsuits on election integrity issues in 20 states during the 2022 midterm election cycle, an increase from 2020 that has already secured GOP victories in battleground states this year.  The scope of the legal challenges stretches from the rights of poll watchers to observe the counting of votes to the illegal counting of mismarked absentee ballots.  This aggressive legal approach is an effort to meet RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel's vision of making this cycle the RNC's "most litigious," according to an RNC spokesperson.  The strategy includes offense-minded lawsuits, such as suing Democratic secretaries of state and challenging Democrat-friendly election laws, and defensive actions that include intervening in lawsuits brought by the Biden administration in Republican states.

When Being An 'Election Denier' Didn't Get You Branded A Liar.  The press automatically appends the word "lie" anytime anyone suggests that the 2020 election wasn't on the up and up.  Democrats portray November's election as a "fight for Democracy" because a vote for a Republican is a vote for election-denying-Jan. 6-terrorist-sympathizing fascists.  Just bringing up the idea of election fraud is tantamount to treason.  Big Tech tries its best to suppress any form of this dangerous "misinformation."  Well, the other day we came across this video and were truly shocked at how widespread election denialism has become.  This video is a collection of clips of prominent politicians and personalities claiming outright that the election was stolen and that the president is illegitimate, and that the Electoral College should ignore official vote tallies and appoint the next president.

Not Consensus, But Truth.  Perhaps the most popular meme floating about in polite society today is the contention that any hint of the 2020 presidential election being tainted is a "Big Lie."  It is so popular, in fact, that some journalists and politicians appear to present themselves to the Office of Acceptable Propaganda each day before setting off on their rounds.  They collect their allotted quota of different ways of ridiculing and dismissing those imprudent enough to suggest that, as a matter of fact, there were lots of problems with the 2020 elections.  It is important that these approved scribes and politicians engage in this ritual because there are many different ways in which this rhetorical epithet needs to be expressed if it is to achieve its goal:  to silence debate by intimidating people. [...] The obloquy is directed not simply against certain ideas, but also against the people who express, or might express, them.

MI SOS Jocelyn Benson Loses Another Court Case.  On Oct 10, we reported about five individuals in Michigan who sued Michigan's dishonest Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, and MI Director of Elections Jonathan Brater over their sudden creation of a new set of rules titled "The Appointments, Rights, and Duties of Poll Challengers and Election Workers," only months before Michigan's August 2, 2022, Primary Election.  The lawsuit, which was filed by Attorney Ann Howard in the MI Court of Claims, was joined together with a similar lawsuit filed by the RNC.  The suit asked for an emergency injunction to compel MI SOS Jocelyn Benson and Jonathan Brater to rescind the changes to their newly created "guidance" for poll challengers that was first implemented in the August 2022 Primary Election.

The Midterms.  When posted overseas, I was pretty good at analyzing and predicting political events in foreign countries, but US politics?  Not so good.  Too many variables, too much volatility, and, of course, unreliable vote counting make it very tough.  We also have one of the sloppiest vote collection and tabulation systems in the world.  We have no clear idea of just who is voting, and how the votes are counted.  It's a disgrace.  In much of the country, we have voting systems and regulations designed when we were a much more homogeneous and even rural, small town, country where we all knew each other.  Ain't that way now.  We need a complete election system overhaul, e.g., voter ids, clear laws on only citizens voting, and simple counting measures that do not involve inserting a ballot into a mysterious machine that then "counts" the votes.  Go back to paper and pencil with government and political party monitors keeping a close eye to avert the sort of electoral travesty we saw in 2020.

Republicans win major election integrity ruling against Michigan secretary of state.  The Republican Party has won an election integrity lawsuit against Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson over restrictions she imposed on poll challengers.  Benson, per the Republican National Committee, had imposed restrictions on poll challengers, including a new credential form, an "artificial deadline" for appointing them, and limiting the poll workers with whom the challengers may communicate.  "This ruling is a massive victory for election integrity, the rule of law, and Michigan voters," RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a press release. "Jocelyn Benson not only disregarded Michigan election law in issuing this guidance, she also violated the rights of political parties and poll challengers to fully ensure transparency and promote confidence that Michigan elections are run fairly and lawfully.  This legal win will help deliver the transparency at the ballot box that Michiganders deserve with midterm elections in 19 days."

An 'Unusual' Thing Happened Before a Virginia Elections Director Was Mysteriously Charged with Two Felonies Over the 2020 Election.  The Virginia Election Integrity Unit earlier dismissed a county elections official for 2020 voting irregularities and charged her with two felony counts of corrupt conduct and making a false statement.  While it is not entirely clear what happened, the reported backstory reveals that the Democrats' complaints about her dismissal are hollow, indeed.  The Washington Post recently reported on the felony counts facing the ex-voting official and her summary dismissal.  It is essential background reading for understanding a glaring anomaly in Virginia's 2020 election that has raised red flags with some veteran political observers.

Who denies election results?  A Democratic myth has arisen that former President Donald Trump's denial of the accuracy of the 2020 vote was "unprecedented."  Unfortunately, the history of U.S. elections is often a story of both legitimate and illegitimate election denialism.  The 1800, 1824, 1876, and 1960 elections were all understandably questioned.  In some of these cases, a partisan House of Representatives decided the winner.  Presidential candidate Al Gore in 2000 did not accept the popular vote results in Florida.  He spent five weeks futilely contesting the state's tally — until recounts and the Supreme Court certified it.  The ensuing charge that former President George W. Bush was "selected not elected" was the Democrats' denialist mantra for years.  In 2004, Senator Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. and 31 Democratic House members voted not to certify the Ohio election results in their unhinged efforts to overturn the election.  Those denialists included the current sanctimonious chairman of the January 6 select committee, U.S. Representative Benny Thompson, D-Miss.  After 2016, crackpot Democratic orthodoxy for years insisted that Trump had "colluded" with Russia to "steal" certain victory from Hillary Clinton.

AZ Election Official Stephen Richer Ran On Election Integrity, Now He's Accused Of Law-Breaking And Politicking.  Stephen Richer campaigned in Maricopa County, Arizona, in 2020 on the slogan that he would "make the Recorder's Office boring again."  By any measure, he's failed.  The self-styled "hardcore libertarian" was elected as a Republican after he drafted a blistering 228-page review of Maricopa County's 2018 election administration as well as a 48-page audit lambasting the Democrat running the county's elections. [...] He now uses his perch as an opportunity to regularly defend the Democrat-run 2020 election in Maricopa County, write op-eds at CNN against the type of election audits he conducted to gain power, draft lengthy screeds lambasting Republican leaders and voters for their election integrity concerns, and push ranked-choice voting and other efforts critics say are disastrous for voter confidence in elections.  He even set up a Democrat-funded political action committee to support Arizona candidates who share his views, a move strongly rejected as unethical by ethical election officials.

18 Questions for Ronna McDaniel and the RNC as the 2022 Midterm Quickly Approaches.  [#4]  Where is the RNC litigation that mandates State and County election officials report the total number of ballots in their possession on election night?  The old term "Total Ballots Cast" was applicable when everyone voted in person, on election day.  It should probably now be called "Total Ballots Collected" or similar.  Knowing this total on election night can prevent late ballots from being added.  Elections now only report the ballots counted, then update this each day after the election.  [#5]  Where is the RNC's aggressive fight and litigation to clean up voter rolls?  There is no visible offense by the RNC here.  The only movement is from the Public Interest Legal Foundation who file a few lawsuits each year.  This issue needs a grenade, not ticky tack lawsuits over 73 dead people.  Many feel this matter should be pushed to the Supreme Court once and for all.

The View Defends Felons Committing Voter Fraud in Florida.  Leave it to ABC's The View to take up the position that murderers, pedophiles, and other sex offenders deserve to vote and commit voter fraud.  That was the hill they wanted to die on Wednesday after body-camera video surfaced showing Florida law enforcement officers arresting individuals accused of illegally voting.  The cast didn't seem to know what the law was with one claiming they were illegally arrested and another claiming the Republicans were cheating to win.

DOJ Is Hiding How It's Complying with Biden's Voter Registration Drive, Rep. Norman Says.  Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) is demanding answers from the Department of Justice (DOJ) after the agency refused to release all documents regarding how it intended to implement a 2021 executive order on expanding voter access.  Republicans have opposed this order as an unlawful exercise of federal power over elections.  In March 2021, President Joe Biden signed an executive order (EO 14019) directing the head of every federal agency, including the DOJ, to come up with a strategic plan on how to "promote voter registration and voter participation."  Their plans should be submitted to Susan Rice, the president's domestic policy adviser.  The executive order also mandates that these agencies work with "approved" third-party organizations to provide voter registration services on federal agency premises.  Since then, Republican lawmakers have questioned whether the administration has the constitutional and statutory authority to enact such an order.

The Politicization of the Department of Justice.  The 2020 election was rampant with reports of irregularities.  Some of these reports were more accurate than others.  But states were right to take appropriate steps to increase the security of their elections in the wake of such reports.  And yet, from its first days, the Biden administration has been bent on waging an intimidation campaign against states attempting to bolster election integrity.  Consider Georgia.  The midnight ballot dump that pushed Biden ahead of Trump had all the appearances of manipulative ballot stuffing.  That was followed by days of uncertainty about who won.  Reports soon surfaced of massive ballot harvesting — illegal in Georgia — as well as deeply concerning evidence that Mark Zuckerberg-funded nonprofits had placed personnel in election operations in blue counties with the effect of decreasing signature-matching efforts.  Given the backdrop in which the 2020 election took place — with new and expansive vote-by-mail procedures — it's not surprising that alarms went off and that many citizens questioned the final vote tally.

Riverside, California registrar mails 5,000 voters duplicate ballots.  [Scroll down] Nothing to see here, little technical glitch, just throw that extra ballot away, and move along.  They've got this.  Elections are always clean in California.  Problem over, right?  Not exactly.  Start with the technical claim that the second ballots sent cannot be counted.  On Twitter, one person did argue that such things aren't exactly as cut-and-dried as the Riverside County registrar of the voters, Rebecca Spencer, claims:  [Tweet]  If that's true, a great gaslight is going up about the security of the mail balloting system and whether two votes can be cast from one voter.  One wonders what becomes of the thrown-away ballots, assuming the duplicates are thrown away, as well as those that are cast twice.  The L.A. Times, though, takes the registrar's word for it that the problem is all fixed.

Body Cam Footage Shows Police Cracking Down On Illegal Voting In Florida Leaving Perps Dumbfounded.  In April, Governor Desantis signed a bill creating the Florida Office of Election Crimes and Security, an election police force.  This was instituted as Republicans increased their efforts to crack down on what they believe was widespread fraud after the 2020 Presidential elections.  Desantis announced 20 arrests claiming these citizens had illegally voted for various reasons.  However, as the Times shows, there has been a lot of confusion, particularly with citizens who claim election officials had told them they were eligible to vote.  Body-worn camera footage recorded by local police captured the confusion and outrage of Hillsborough County residents who found themselves in handcuffs for allegedly illegally casting a ballot following investigations by Gov. Ron DeSantis' new Office of Election Crimes and Security.  The voters caught in the "gotcha" arrests are former felons, most of them Black. "Voter fraud?  Y'all said anybody with a felony could vote, man," Tony Patterson said as police arrested him.

Is It Possible The Chinese Really Did Hack Our Elections?  I do a lot of speaking on election integrity.  I say frequently[,] while there are endless problems with the security of our elections[,] I don't believe the Chinese "hacked" the 2020 election.  Maybe I was wrong.  A number of weeks ago True the Vote broke the story that a company called Konnech in Michigan was storing data on American election workers on servers in China.  True the Vote leaders Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips were, of course, ridiculed by the so-called mainstream press.  Then, Los Angeles arrested the head of Konnech and charged him with violations of U.S. laws on the handling of personally identifiable information — by storing it on servers in China.  The ridicule stopped. Even the New York Times had to issue a retraction.  It has gotten much worse since then.  Konnech wasn't just storing data in China.  Konnech was using contractors inside China to do work in the United States on American election systems.

Republicans Sue Pennsylvania Officials Who Said They'll Accept Mail-In Ballots Without Dates.  Republicans are suing Pennsylvania officials after the state's top election official said mail-in ballots without dates will be accepted, in contravention of state law.  A group of Pennsylvania voters, the Republican National Committee, and the Pennsylvania Republican Party filed the lawsuit with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, asking justices to quickly declare illegal the guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of State regarding ballots that don't have dates.  Acting Pennsylvania Secretary of State Leigh Chapman said on Oct. 11 that "every county is expected to include undated ballots in their official returns for the Nov. 8 election, consistent with the Department of State's guidance."  The guidance, last updated in September, states that "any ballot-return envelope that is undated or dated with an incorrect date but that has been timely received by the county shall be included" in the vote count.

San Luis, AZ Democrat Ballot Trafficker Gets 30 Days In Jail.  Guillermina Fuentes has been sentenced to 30 days in the Yuma County Detention Center after she was caught on video trafficking ballots in San Luis.  The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Guillermina Fuentes finally pleaded guilty more than 15 months after she was indicted on four felony charges.  The heavier charges of Forgery and Conspiracy were dropped in Fuentes' plea agreement, and she only pleaded guilty to one minor count of ballot abuse.  We later reported that prosecutors were seeking a one-year prison sentence for Fuentes' voter fraud.

Score One for True the Vote.  Konnech is an election software company which provides Poll Chief software for election worker management.  It is used in a number of counties, including DeKalb in Georgia, Washoe County, Nevada; Fairfax County, Virginia; Detroit, Michigan; Los Angeles County, California; Prince William County, Virginia; Johnson County, Kansas; and Allen County, Indiana.  True the Vote, which seeks to ensure election integrity, investigated the company and was sued by it, alleging unauthorized access and "distribution of material gotten through such access."  It claimed in its complaint that "All of Konnech's U.S. customer data is secured and stored exclusively on protected computers located within the United States."  Upon its allegations it received an immediate temporary restraining order.

The Left Is Pushing To Reshape Voting Systems Across America — Here's How.  The left's latest ploy to remake elections is a complicated scheme called "ranked-choice voting" (RCV).  Advocates claim it strengthens "majority rule" and leads to a healthier democracy, and they've pushed dozens of municipalities and two states to use it.  Nevada is their latest target.  Voters there will decide on election day if they want to join in this nationwide experiment.  If experience is any judge, they'd be wise to sit this one out.  If the measure known as Question 3 eventually passes (it would have to pass again in 2024), Nevada's traditional election system will be upended.  Party primaries will be replaced with a California-style "jungle primary."  The five candidates who get the most votes will advance to the general and ranked-choice voting would be used to determine the final winner.  That sounds simple, but RCV is far more complex than its proponents make it out to be.

Election Software CEO Surrenders to LA Authorities; Prosecutors Allege 'Massive Data Breach'.  Los Angeles prosecutors on Oct. 14 accused the CEO of a Michigan-based election software company of being involved in a "massive" data breach affecting at least thousands of victims, including minors.  Eugune Yu, 64, who heads Konnech, a company that provides software to electoral districts for the management of poll workers, was charged with the felony crime of embezzlement of public funds.  He appeared in a Los Angeles County court on Oct. 14.  The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office has accused Yu of stealing personal identifying information of poll workers.  The office alleged that such data was stored on servers in China, in violation of Konnech's contract with Los Angeles County.  Superior Court of Los Angeles County Judge Victoria Wilson ruled that Yu be released on a $500,000 bond and remain in house arrest until his next hearing, which is set for Nov. 17.  Yu was ordered to remain in Los Angeles County and wear an ankle monitor.

Arizona AG asks FBI, IRS to investigate election integrity watchdog True the Vote.  Republican Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has asked the IRS and FBI to review the financials of the conservative nonprofit group True The Vote for allegedly raising money on false statements about widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.  In a letter obtained Friday by Fox News Digital, Chief Special Agent Reggie Grigsby of the Special Investigations Section for Brnovich's office accused True The Vote (TTV) of repeatedly failing to provide promised information about alleged ballot stuffing and voter fraud to his office while publicly asserting they did so in order to raise funds.

GOP US Senate Candidate's Name Omitted from Ballots in Illinois County.  Republican US Senate Candidate Kathy Salvi released a statement this week after the Schulyer County ballots omitted her name.  [Text of Ms. Salvi's statement omitted for brevity.]

Republican US Senate candidate's name not on ballots distributed in Illinois county.  Some early voters have already cast their ballots in Schuyler County, Illinois, despite Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kathy Salvi's name not being listed as a choice.  Instead of Salvi's name, the name of her defeated primary opponent Peggy Hubbard is listed on the ballot as an option.  Salvi won the seven-way Republican primary on June 28 by a significant margin.  Salvi, who seeks to unseat the incumbent Democrat Sen. Tammy Duckworth, is demanding accountability, claiming that the proposed remedial efforts do "not solve the most pressing problem of election integrity and transparency" and that voters have "been potentially disenfranchised."  She noted that the issue was brought to her attention on October 11.  "Ballots drafted by the Schuyler County Board of Elections, and approved by the Illinois State Board of Elections, incorrectly listed one of my primary opponents as the Republican nominee for the United States Senate," said Salvi in a statement issued on Wednesday [10/12/2022].

Voter Fraud Comes in All Shapes and Sizes, But Can Sometimes Swing Elections.  Voter fraud is surprisingly common.  Prosecutions for it can range from small-scale cases, like someone with two residences voting in both states, to large-scale crimes that changed electoral outcomes, affected hundreds or thousands of votes, and ranged across multiple states.  An extensive voter fraud database maintained by the Heritage Foundation has logged 1384 proven cases of voter fraud, resulting in 1191 criminal convictions, 48 civil penalties, and 103 defendants ending up in diversion programs.  And the foundation says the list doesn't come close to being comprehensive.  The database, which goes back to 1992, lists 19 elections overturned due to fraud, 16 of those since 2000.

How Winners are Losing in American Elections.  Who exactly are the winners of this new and confusing electoral system called ranked-choice voting (RCV)?  It's not the thousands of voters that show up to the polls in RCV elections only to have their votes thrown out.  The winners of RCV are partisans and special interests who use the system's design to manipulate election outcomes and undermine states' efforts to safeguard election integrity.  Take Maine, for example.  In the 2018 2nd Congressional District election, Jared Golden, the Democrat, was declared the winner despite losing in the first round of tabulation with 45.58 percent to the Republican Bruce Poliquin's 46.33 percent.  To declare Golden the winner, more than 8,000 votes were systematically thrown out.

Election Watchdog Probes Colorado Offer of Voter Registration to 30,000 Noncitizens.  An election watchdog group is seeking more information about why Colorado sent 30,000 postcards to noncitizens, inviting them to register to vote.  Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold admitted Monday that her office sent out the notices and called it an error that she is trying to address.  The Public Interest Legal Foundation announced Wednesday that it has made an inspection request to Griswold's office under the National Voter Registration Act for documents specifying how the office filters out noncitizens from receiving such notices, how the office caught the error, and listing noncitizens who were sent the postcards.  "Noncitizens cannot register to vote," J. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, said in a prepared statement.  "We have asked Colorado to document instances where the checks they presumably have in place to prevent aliens from registering actually worked.  If we don't receive the documents we requested, we will exercise rights under federal law."

Pennsylvania to count undated ballots, election official says, despite US Supreme Court ruling.  A top election official in Pennsylvania says the state will disregard the U.S. Supreme Court's guidance on counting mail-in ballots arriving in envelopes with typos or incorrect dates, saying that the state's Commonwealth Court has already established the practice as licit.  Pennsylvania's election laws have historically required voters to include a signature and date on the outside of return envelopes when voting by mail.  However, acting Secretary of State Leigh Chapman announced that Pennsylvania election officials should continue counting ballots that arrive with improperly filled-out envelopes, in accordance with the Commonwealth Court's previous ruling on the matter.

Did Inflated Voter Rolls And Botched Signature Review Wrongly Thwart Recall Of Woke L.A. DA? Lawsuit Says Yes.  After its push to oust L.A. County District Attorney George Gascon failed because nearly 200,000 petition signatures were invalidated, the campaign to recall Gascon announced it is filing for injunctive relief after an initial review showed 39 percent of the signatures invalidated by the L.A. County registrar were likely wrongfully rejected.  "The initial review of invalidated signatures demonstrates the Registrar's counting process was seriously flawed, resulting in substantial errors, the wrongful invalidation of many valid signatures, and the disenfranchisement of thousands of Los Angeles County Voters," the campaign wrote in a press release. [...] Examples of improper invalidation by the registrar include:
  •   Signatures "invalidated as 'non-matching' despite showing substantial similarities to the signatures on file."
  •   Signatures invalidated as "not registered" despite the signature belonging to a registered voter.
  •   Signatures "incorrectly invalidated as 'duplicates' without the Registrar counting at least one of the alleged duplicates as required by law."
  •   Signatures invalidated over confusion regarding changes to voters' addresses.

Non-Partisan Elections Are Non-Existent.  In today's very partisan environment, where Democrats and Republicans have completely opposed views on critical issues, it is imperative to know the political registration of all people running for local offices — especially city councils and school boards.  For most Americans, the political party they are registered with is an introduction to their personal values and core beliefs.  Learning a city council and school board candidate's party affiliation should be the first step in reviewing their bona fides.  However, we can no longer assume party affiliation is enough information.  For instance, Liz Cheney is a registered Republican and former Democrat-now-Independent Tulsi Gabbard is a registered Democrat.  Which one would you vote for?  Plus, many Republicans have switched to no party preference (NPP) or Independent.  Once you know their party affiliation, there's more to do since the Republican candidate might not share your conservative values.  The second step is learning their positions on major issues.  For incumbents, it means reviewing their voting record.

Another voting registration 'accident' with 30,000 non-citizens mailed notices, this time in Colorado.  There's a reason voters don't trust elections as honest mechanisms anymore, and a Democrat secretary of state in Colorado has shown us all why. [...] Ahhh, a mistake.  Unwitting.  Accidental.  The staff did it.  And somehow, it's only Democrats who do this.  A basic function of a registrar of voters is to maintain clean voting rolls.  The staff knew that citizens and noncitizens were all mixed in in the driver's license database, yet they chose to ignore that issue and mailed away to let the illegals know they too could vote.  If you were an illegal and constantly heard news about the trend of getting noncitizens to vote in big cities, why wouldn't you think the state of Colorado wanted you to register to vote, particularly since the notice was printed in ultra-accommodating Spanish?  The citizenship requirement was just fine print, and in any case, everyone's a citizen of somewhere, including, as Democrats say, "undocumented citizens." Non-citizens, of course, and particularly illegals, tend to vote Democrat.

Is This the Beginning of the End for George Soros?  On September 30, U.S. district judge Steven Jones threw out the lawsuit filed in 2018 by Stacey Abrams and her political action committee, Fair Fight Georgia.  The Epoch Times reported that the lawsuit alleged election irregularities, and Judge Jones ruled that "although Georgia's election system is not perfect, the challenged practices violate neither the constitution nor the [Voting Rights Amendment]."  However, Abrams was still able to reinstate 22,000 rejected provisional and absentee ballots after the 2018 election.  This judge was on to something when he said Georgia's election system isn't perfect.  Here are just a few of the inconsistencies from the 2020 election you can find documentation of on the VoterGA website:
  •   There are six sworn affidavits of counterfeit mail-in ballots in Fulton Co. election results scaling into the tens of thousands.
  •   All 350,000+ original in-person ballot images in Fulton are missing in violation of federal and state retention law.
  •   All 393,000+ original ballot images in Cobb are missing in violation of federal and state retention law.
This is also not the only legal action that Abrams has initiated over elections.  First, we have the now-infamous consent decree, which stemmed from a lawsuit filed by Abrams prior to the 2020 election, making it nearly impossible to verify signatures on ballots.

Supreme Court Backs Republican Judge, Rules Pennsylvania Mail In Ballots Must Be Dated.  On Tuesday, the Supreme Court vacated an appeals court decision requiring Pennsylvania to count mail-in ballots even if they were in an undated envelope.  Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ketanji Brown Jackson wrote, "The judgment is vacated, and the case is remanded to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit with instructions to dismiss the case as moot[.]"  According to the Epoch Times, the justices sided with the Republican candidate for a judgeship, David Ritter.  Ritter lost his 2021 race after 257 un-dated ballots were counted.  Ritter was running for Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas and attempted to have the votes thrown out, but in a ruling earlier this year, the Supreme Court denied Ritter's request.  The Supreme Courts Tuesday ruling will not change the outcome of Ritter's previous loss, but it will set a precedent for the upcoming midterm elections.

Voting in Arizona in 2022.  Though I am not partisan, and have always distrusted Republicans as much as Democrats, this year my choices are very partisan.  The Democratic Party has become very very corrupt.  The best thing Americans can do to clean up that party is to throw out as many of its elected officials as possible.  At that point the party will be faced with a stark choice:  shift gears, change leadership, or die (allowing a new party to replace it).  With any of these options, the voters would be provided with a new choice in future elections, coming from a different direction.  I am also making recommendations in connection with statewide and local propositions, several of which are hidden mines designed to eliminate what little election security we presently have.  Voters must know this.

Supreme Court rules in favor of GOP in Pennsylvania mail-ballot case.  The Supreme Court sided with a Republican candidate who lost his bid for judgeship in Pennsylvania, ordering the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to toss out its ruling that allowed the counting of mail-in ballots in the race.  Justices on the high court vacated the 3rd Circuit ruling at the request of David Ritter, who ran in 2021 to be a judge on the Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas.  He lost to his Democratic rival Zachary Cohen by five votes after 257 absentee ballots without dates on the envelope were counted.  The decision to remand the case does not affect the outcome of the 2021 race.  But by remanding the case, the high court held that the 3rd Circuit ruling cannot be used as precedent in the three states covered by the federal appellate court, which includes Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey.

Konnech Election Compromise, CCP Infiltration, CEO Arrest, True The Vote and Recent Deep State Misinformation Efforts.  When the FBI/DOJ need to get out in front of an issue they use the New York Times (and Politico) to establish the defensive and offensive narrative.  [The State Dept use CNN, and the CIA use the Washington post] These are constants in an ever-changing world of information warfare.  On October 3rd New York Times journalist Stuart Thompson writes a hit piece against Catherine Englebrecht and True The Vote, written to cast their election review efforts as conspiracy theories.  24 hours later, October 4th, the CEO of Konnech — a company specializing in proprietary PollChief software to manage election workers — was arrested.  Konnech Corporation Chief Executive Officer Eugene Yu was arrested for exploiting access to U.S. election data, including election worker information, and transferring the files to China.

Election denial or Election Fraud Denial?  The Democrats are proposing the Electoral Count Reform and Presidential Transition Improvement Act of 2022.  This is in answer to the Republicans questioning the election results of the 2020 Presidential election.  This is a rather questionable action given that the Republicans questioned the 2020 election because of obvious irregularities.  These occurred in the process leading up to the election day as well as the shenanigans that occurred the night of the election and in the week that followed. [...] The concern now is what are the Democrats and some Republicans planning to do about it.  They call everyone who questions the results "election deniers."  They have convenient election amnesia because it has always been the Democrats that objected to the presidential election results.  This occurred in Presidential elections in 2000, 2004, and 2016.

Colorado 'Accidentally' Sends Out 30,000 Voter Registration Cards to Non-Citizens.  In a move sure to raise a few eyebrows, Colorado has "accidentally" sent out 30,000 voter registration cards to non-citizens.  That's according to a report from Colorado Public Radio.  According to the outlet, the 30,000 cards were sent to non-citizens because of a mix-up with the formatting of the query involving DMV records.  In Colorado, illegal immigrants are able to obtain a driver's license, which was apparently the nexus of the issue.

14 Precincts In Alaska Ban Voting Machines: Votes Will Be Hand-Counted.  Voters across the country continue to raise questions about voting tabulation machines.  Concerns about voting machines were only worsened this week as the CEO of an election software company, Konnech Corporations, was arrested for stealing poll worker data in Michigan.  The concerns over voting tabulation machines have led to calls for machine voting to be suspended until more thorough investigations are done to ensure that data is not being mishandled and that they accurately tabulate votes.  In a significant move that could lead to similar decisions being made across the country, the Matanuska-Susitna Borough Assembly passed an ordinance that will prohibit the use of voting tabulation machines and make poll workers hand-tabulate ballots for the upcoming midterm elections.

How Different Would America Be Today if Trump was Still President?  This is the easiest column I've ever written.  It's so simple to imagine what America would be like today if Trump was still President.  What a tragedy that we allowed a brain-dead, feeble, confused, old man with dementia and diapers, and his radical, anti-American, globalist, communist handlers to destroy the greatest country in world history — in only 22 months.  Let's start with the obvious.  How did this happen?  The 2020 election was stolen.  That's how they removed Trump from office and installed a man who doesn't know who he is, where he is, or what he's doing.  A man who can't put 2 sentences together, and who can't attract more than 20 people in concentric circles to his speeches, yet they want us to suspend reality and believe he got 81 million votes — the most in history.  Bizarre.

Election Integrity Watchdog Files Lawsuits Over Millions of Cases of Voter Registration Fraud.  Conservative election law nonprofit Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) filed six lawsuits in six Minnesota counties over 515 duplicate registrants, as reported by Just the News.  They also found that 3.1 million registered voters in New York state were missing personal identification information, including driver's license numbers and Social Security numbers, which makes it difficult for the state to accurately maintain its voter rolls — precisely the objective on the Democrat side of the ledger in Democrat-controlled states.

Watchdog files lawsuits over voter registration duplicates, finds millions lacking required ID.  With midterm elections a month away, an election integrity watchdog has filed multiple lawsuits in Minnesota over duplicate registered voters while also finding millions of voter registrations in New York missing personal identifying information.  Public Interest Legal Foundation, a conservative election law nonprofit, filed six lawsuits in Minnesota counties over 515 duplicate registrants.  The lawsuits were filed in Nicollet, Dakota, Hennepin, Olmsted, Todd and Ramsey counties.  PILF also found that 3.1 million registered voters in New York were missing personal identifying information, such as a driver's license number or Social Security number, which makes it difficult for the state to accurately maintain its voter rolls.  Under the federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA), states are prohibited "from accepting a voter registration unless the voter registration contains a unique identifying number such as the last four digits of a social security number or driver's license number," according to a PILF press release.

RNC, AZ GOP sue Maricopa County over poll workers; board chair calls it 'absurd'.  Arizona's Republican Party and the Republican National Committee have sued Maricopa County officials over poll worker staffing and alleged failure to produce requested records.  The suit claims that central count boards in the county have unequal numbers of Democrats and Republicans.  It also alleges Maricopa County has not fully complied with records requests about poll workers.

Delaware Supreme Court Rules Mail-In Voting Unconstitutional and Strikes Down Same-Day Registration.  The Delaware Supreme Court ruled on Friday that mail-in voting is unconstitutional in the state.  [Tweets]

Supreme Court strikes down vote-by-mail, same-day registration.  In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court of Delaware has ruled the state's mail-in voting and same-day voter registration statutes unconstitutional.  Neither will be allowed in the Nov. 8 general election.  The ruling, which came just one day after oral arguments, is a major defeat for Gov. John Carney and Delaware Democrats.  In an abbreviated order, the court said the vote-by-mail statute "impermissibly expands the categories of absentee voters identified in Article V, Section 4A of the Delaware Constitution."  As for the same-day registration statute, the court said it conflicts with Article V, Section 4 of the Constitution.  The Supreme Court published its decision in a 3-page abbreviated order so as to allow as much time as possible for election officials and voters to communicate and understand changes to the upcoming election.  Traditional absentee voting is not affected by the court's decision.

Wisconsin Judge Rules That Electors Cannot Change Ballots After Voting.  In a win for election integrity, absentee voters can no longer change their vote after submitting their ballots, a Wisconsin judge has ruled.  As previously reported, Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (RITE) filed a lawsuit against the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) for its unlawful guidance that allowed absentee voters to change their vote after their ballot had already been cast.  The guidance also allows election officials to "spoil" the old ballot on behalf of the voter, creating an environment ripe for voter fraud and confusion.  Such a directive violated Wisconsin statute, which states that a voter possesses the exclusive authority to spoil his absentee ballot before it is submitted, not after.  RITE argued that the guidance was against the law and could create opportunities for fraud and confusion.  Waukesha County Circuit Judge Brad Schimel agreed with RITE and ordered WEC to rescind its guidance on Wednesday.  The Democratic National Committee had joined WEC in fighting the lawsuit.

Election Software CEO Arrested For Storing Data In China Caught With Luggage On Way To MI Airport.  Earlier this week, we reported about a significant arrest that took place in LA County, CA, related to the 2020 elections.  On September 8, a reporter from 100 Percent Fed Up attended "The Pit," where True the Votes' Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips dropped a bombshell about the arrest of Eugene Yu, CEO of Konnech, an E. Lansing, MI-based company responsible for the software used in managing elections in several states that stored personal information of over 1 million Americans in its database.  Konnech, much like Dominion, almost immediately sued True the Vote as a way to silence them and keep them from speaking out about the bombshell information they provided to reporters at The Pit related to Konnech and the unlawful transfer of information from America to China.

Election Software CEO Arrested Over Data Theft, Storing Data on Servers in China.  The head of Konnech Corp., a Michigan-based software company, was arrested on Oct. 4 for allegedly stealing and storing personal data of Los Angeles County election workers on servers in China.  Konnech CEO Eugene Yu, 51, was arrested in Michigan on charges of stealing "the personal identifying information" of Los Angeles County election workers, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.  Investigators also seized computer hard drives and other digital data relevant to the case.  The office stated that it would seek Yu's extradition to Los Angeles. [...] Under the contract, Konnech was supposed to securely maintain the data and only provide access to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.  But investigators found that the company stored the data on servers in China.

Lawsuit: Michigan Secretary of State Broke The Law With Rogue Restrictions On Poll Challengers.  Even among the most extreme Democratic secretaries of state, Michigan's Jocelyn Benson stands out. [...] When a $12 million grant from Mark Zuckerberg — "Zuckbucks" — was funneled to Michigan through the left-wing Center for Election Innovation and Research (ostensibly to help government officials administer elections), the money did not go to the state but to Benson's nonprofit, the Michigan Center for Election Law and Administration.  While supposedly nonpartisan, this nonprofit used nearly all of the $12 million grant to pay Democratic consulting firms for "election security."  Benson also padded Michigan's voter rolls right before the election, sending out automatic voter registration forms to all eligible Michigan citizens.  As a result of the mailer, 114,000 people were added to the rolls.  Benson has not escaped scrutiny for her behavior.  She's been the subject of multiple lawsuits for neglecting to clean Michigan's voter rolls.  But most recently, Benson's come under fire for issuing last-minute guidance restricting the ability of Michiganders to oversee their local elections.

Arrest made in alleged election worker data breach; info stored in China.  The top executive of an election logistics software company that has clashed with groups alleging voter fraud was arrested Tuesday over the alleged theft of Los Angeles County poll workers' personally identifiable information, which investigators said was illegally stored in China.  Konnech Corp.  CEO Eugene Yu was arrested in Michigan and held on suspicion of stealing data from hundreds of poll workers.  His company had a contract with Los Angeles County to maintain the data and only provide access to U.S. citizens and permanent residents, but Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon's office said the company stored the information on servers in China.  Konnech's software is used to manage the nitty-gritty of holding elections, like scheduling poll workers.

[A] Large Garbage Bag [was] Used To Transfer Stacks of Absentee Ballots From [a] Detroit Drop Box.  Several months ago, the Gateway Pundit obtained surveillance video footage from 19 absentee ballot drop boxes in Detroit from the 2020 election. 100 Percent Fed Up began working with MC4EI (Michigan Citizens For Election Integrity), who poured through 16,000 hours of video footage to identify potential criminal activity that took place during the 2020 election.  So far, we've been able to share multiple cases of suspicious and possibly criminal activity taking place at several drop box locations.  From massive ballot drops of 40-50 ballots by individuals or teams of two individuals to hundreds of people taking photos of their hands dropping ballots into the drop boxes, to Dominion tabulators being delivered to a satellite voting center where top election officials say there are no tabulations taking place, we've been able to share a variety of suspicious activities taking place at Detroit satellite voting centers, that if Michigan had a law and order Attorney General or honest Secretary of State, would be under investigation.

Washington, DC, Democrats Approve Plan Allowing Illegal Aliens to Vote.  Democrats on the Washington, DC, City Council have approved a plan that would allow foreign nationals, including illegal aliens, to vote in local elections.  On Tuesday, the D.C. City Council voted 12-1 to advance a bill that will allow foreign nationals, regardless of if they have visas or are illegally in the United States, to vote in local elections such as school board races and mayoral elections.

Where Artificial Intelligence Can Expose Leftist Vote Fraud.  A.I. is a technology game two can play.  Remember those 2020 election voter rolls? [...] You've read the stories about the 23,000 Wisconsin voters using the same phone number and thousands of voters with "codes" that cannot be read by traditional computers as their voter IDs.  Our technology, Fractal Programming, found all that stuff for the Wisconsin voter team.  There was nothing "intelligent" in those data.  The only time we found anything coming close to the word "intelligent" was the lack of intelligence from secretaries of state, particularly Republicans.  There were the Alabama voters older than Genghis Khan, registered in 2020, who vote.  There were the Missouri voters registered in the Branson hotel.  There were the Texans who voted in person but their ballot later changed to absentee.  Remember that hapless Wisconsin voter whose voter ID was a single character, an apostrophe — such a small character that we thought it was a speck on our computer screen?  The original Wisconsin Fractal system grew almost overnight to a dozen or more states.  What was supposed to be a limited proof of concept exploded into the largest election database in the world — and that was only for 12 or 15 states.  We have the data for 25 more on deck.

Lawsuit: Wisconsin Elections Commission Let Electors Change Votes After Submitting Ballots.  Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (RITE) filed a lawsuit against the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) last week over its unlawful guidance allowing absentee voters to change their votes after their ballots are cast.  In an Aug. 1, 2022, memorandum sent to all Wisconsin municipal clerks, WEC instructed that after a voter submits an absentee ballot, he can request to "spoil" that ballot and receive a new one if he changes his mind or makes a mistake.  Furthermore, in an Aug. 2 memo, WEC allows clerks to "invalidate" a "spoiled ballot" on behalf of the voter.  Such guidance violates Wisconsin statute, which states that a voter possesses the exclusive authority to spoil his absentee ballot before it is submitted, not after.  If the voter spoils his absentee ballot before he casts it, he must return the ballot to the clerk (who then destroys it) and request a new one.  With WEC's new guidance, however, a clerk may invalidate a "spoiled" ballot on behalf of the voter, thereby increasing the potential for fraud or abuse in the absentee voting process.

Petition Filed with the US Supreme Court Against Dominion, Facebook and CFCL in "A Case of Great National Importance".  A group of individuals filed a class action lawsuit against Dominion Voting Systems, Facebook, CTCL and Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, which is now going to the US Supreme Court.  This group claims that the defendants worked together with government employees in a concerted and coordinated effort to change the results of the 2020 Presidential Election in ways that go against the US Constitution.  Here is a timeline of how they got here.

YouTube restricts video of Dems, critics saying 2016 election was hacked, then backtracks.  YouTube cracked down on a video compilation of Democrats and media pundits questioning the legitimacy of former President Donald Trump's 2016 election victory — then overturned the move amid backlash on Thursday.  The TK News video — put together to highlight the partisan double standard over election denialism — had been tagged to run with limited or no ads, depriving the creators of vital revenue, TK's Matt Taibbi said in a Substack post.  The video includes clips of prominent liberals repeatedly calling Trump's presidency "illegitimate" and using the word "hacked" to describe the 2016 election.  "After manually reviewing your video, we've confirmed that it isn't suitable for all advertisers," the Google-owned video giant wrote to producer Matt Orfalea, according to the post.  "As a result, it will continue to run limited or no ads ... Your video remains playable and is still eligible to earn subscription revenue from YouTube Premium."

Ex-Democratic congressman sentenced to prison in years-long Pennsylvania election fraud scheme.  Expelled former Democratic congressman Michael "Ozzie" Myers has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for federal election fraud dating back to 2014, the Justice Department said Tuesday, and was immediately taken into custody.  Myers, 79, pleaded guilty in June to conspiracy to deprive voters of civil rights, bribery, obstruction of justice, falsification of voting records, and conspiring to illegally vote in a federal election as part of scams to stuff ballot boxes for certain Democratic candidates in Pennsylvania elections between 2014 and 2018, the DOJ said in a news release.  Prosecutors said some of the candidates were running to be judges and had hired Myers, who would use portions of "consulting fees" from his clients to pay others to interfere with election results.

Flint, Michigan Clerk Resigns After Elections Group Calls Out Lopsided Number Of Democrat Poll Watchers.  Flint, Michigan's longtime city clerk is retiring after an election integrity group sent a letter to her office demanding she balance out the number of Democrat and Republican election inspectors.  On Sept. 6, Pure Integrity Michigan Elections (PIME) and attorney Erick Kaardal of the Thomas More Society sent a demand letter to Flint and City Clerk Inez Brown threatening legal action if they do not balance out the number of partisan poll watchers before the November general election.  As previously reported, during Flint's Aug. 2 primary, the city hired 422 Democrats compared to just 27 Republican election inspectors — in direct violation of a Michigan state statute that requires equal representation of party election inspectors.

In Pennsylvania, Cleaner Elections Hinge on 3 Court Cases.  Pennsylvania essentially has a one-voter, one-ballot rule, meaning election law requires mailed and absentee ballots to be returned either by mail or in person by the voter to whom it belongs.  State law stipulates that each voter is allowed to place only his or her own ballot in a drop box, not the ballots of other voters.  However, according to the America First Legal Foundation, a security camera captured more than 330 individuals depositing multiple ballots into drop boxes during the state's primary election in June.  Under Pennsylvania law, this would make the ballots void and invalid, the legal foundation notes. [...] The legal foundation is asking the court to require the county election board to see to it that all drop boxes are monitored in person to ensure that they are used by only one person at a time delivering his or her own ballot.

Insidious voter fraud.  In March 2022, The Democrat-dominated Massachusetts State Legislature passed a new law that gives drivers' licenses to illegal immigrants and automatically registers them to vote at the time they get their license.  This law, in addition to all the other bad things it cements into place, creates an entirely new pool of bogus Democrat voters.  These people will be on the official voters' rolls — so they can vote in elections — but they're not U.S. citizens, and so they are technically not qualified to vote.  Conservatives went wild.  This law was never voted on by the people — it was created and pushed through by Democrat politicians to keep Democrats in power with several thousand new fake voters.  Opponents started an uphill grassroots signature campaign to get the measure onto the November ballot so the law can be voted on by the whole electorate.

Barr Lied! FOIA Requests Reveal There Were No DOJ Investigations on Election Fraud After 2020 Election as Bill Barr Claims.  In December 2020, US Attorney General Bill Barr [...] said there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election, defying President Donald Trump's ongoing efforts to reverse the results.  Barr repeated this claim several times since leaving office as President Trump's Attorney General.  Now there is proof that Bill Barr is and was lying.

The DOJ Is Hiding Biden's Voter Registration Plan.  The Justice Department (DOJ) has refused to release its mandated strategic plan about ways to champion voter registration and participation, according to the Foundation for Government Accountability.  President Joe Biden's March 2021 Executive Order on Promoting Access to Voting required every federal agency head to submit a plan within 200 days outlining methods the agency could use to promote voter registration and participation.  A Federal District Court decided earlier in summer 2022 that the DOJ must release documents on this matter to the FGA by Sept. 8, but the department withheld the plan, citing executive privilege, and revealed heavily redacted versions of other documents, the FGA revealed.  FGA President and CEO Tarren Bragdon said Americans "deserve to know if the Biden Administration's unprecedented action is fair and non-partisan."  He argued the DOJ must reveal the documents to ensure fair elections.

Retaining election records from the 2020 election.  Did the number of people who voted in the November 3, 2020 general election equal the number of ballots cast?  A recent research study by the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) says the records that would answer the question do not exist.  Records are supposed to be maintained to determine how many people have voted in an election and how many ballots have been cast.  Section 20701 of the Civil Rights Act of 1960 provides that election officials have to keep all records of federal primary, special, or general elections for 22 months after the date of the election.  Any willful violation can be punished by a fine of up to $1,000 or imprisonment for one year, or both.  Section 20702 provides similar penalties for the willful theft, destruction, concealment, mutilation, or alteration of any such record.  The purpose of these sections is to make it more difficult to hide election fraud.  How good of a job are election officials doing in retaining these records?

Why Is the DOJ Trying to Destroy Mike Lindell, the Pillow Guy?  [Scroll down] [Mike] Lindell was tracked down by FBI agents, corralled at a Hardee's of all places, served a subpoena, and ordered to turn over his cell phone. [...] It's impossible to give Merrick Garland's Department of Justice even the slightest benefit of the doubt in this day and age, as they have subpoenaed virtually half the free world and raided former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate on a seemingly endless fishing expedition.  Pillow Guy's story is equally murky; there are a lot of suspicions and dark insinuations thrown about by the FBI, but little in the way of facts that make you go, "oh man! Lindell really crossed the line on that one!"  Without boring the heck out of you, I'll try to sum it up quickly:  Lindell has been an outspoken critic of the 2020 presidential election and has regularly said he believes the outcome was fraudulent.  This would appear to be his worst crime.  But did he breach voting data machines?

Constitution Day: Liberty Once Lost May be Lost Forever.  [Scroll down] Frequent elections established by the Constitution provided yet another important mechanism to limit the extent and duration of government incompetence and corruption.  This also meant that the most sacred responsibility of citizenship established by the Constitution was and is the right of the people to vote and decide who shall govern.  This combination of limiting governmental power and maximizing peoples' rights makes the U.S. Constitution unique — the longest-running constitutional democratic republic in human history.  Nevertheless, when determined and dishonest people manipulate elections to fix outcomes to install people who can be compromised or to determine who gets power, any constitution can be fundamentally undermined and circumvented, causing disaster for the people.

Lawsuit Asking Benson to Clean Up Voter Roll Upheld.  The U.S. Western District Court of Michigan denied Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson's effort to dismiss the Public Interest Legal Foundation's (PILF) lawsuit for failing to remove deceased registrants from the state's voter roll.  In addition, the court denied the motions to intervene by the Detroit/Downriver Chapter of the A. Philip Randolph Institute and the Michigan Alliance for Retired Americans, and Rise, Inc.  In November 2021, the foundation filed a federal lawsuit against Secretary of State Benson for failure to remove 25,975 deceased registrants from the voter rolls.  The Foundation notified the Secretary of State about these deceased registrants one year before filing the lawsuit.  PILF's analysis of the deceased individuals reveals this breakdown:
  •   23,663 registrants have been dead for five years or more
  •   17,479 registrants have been dead for at least a decade
  •   3,956 registrants have been dead for at least 20 years

Don't Be Fooled: 'Nonpartisan' Get-Out-The-Vote Efforts Always Benefit Democrats.  Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson has said his city will use a private grant to conduct door-to-door canvassing by the city's election officials to urge people to vote.  To many people, it would seem that nothing could be as innocuous as a simple "nonpartisan" get-out-the-vote (GOTV) effort, even if it is financed by private grants to election officials.  It might sound fair enough, if the mayor's election staff takes no partisan position, and advocates for no particular candidates in their efforts, and given that election officials are required by law to operate in a nonpartisan fashion.  But as The Federalist's Mollie Hemingway tweeted at the time, "Zuckerberg-style targeted private financing — and collusion with supposedly non-partisan election administration — of GOTV operations in Democrat regions is a horrific attack on election integrity."

Facebook spied on private messages of Americans who questioned 2020 election.  Facebook has been spying on the private messages and data of American users and reporting them to the FBI if they express anti-government or anti-authority sentiments — or question the 2020 election — according to sources within the Department of Justice.  Under the FBI collaboration operation, somebody at Facebook red-flagged these supposedly subversive private messages over the past 19 months and transmitted them in redacted form to the domestic terrorism operational unit at FBI headquarters in Washington, DC, without a subpoena.  "It was done outside the legal process and without probable cause," alleged one of the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.  "Facebook provides the FBI with private conversations which are protected by the First Amendment without any subpoena."

Audits, Recounts, and the Secret Ballot.  [Scroll down] If audits can't be our solution — and they simply can't — the only remaining option to secure our elections is to do it up front.  We have to take the firm steps of reducing the many opportunities there are to cheat — because once the cheating occurs, it's just too late to correct it.
  •   Ban the six-week election process and month of mail-in voting, and return to a single election day with tightly-controlled absentee ballot options.
  •   Ban onsite and last minute voter registration (except for challenges of voter roll deletions, which must permanently remain segregable even after the count, for security), to ensure enough time to confirm the address before the election.
  •   Mandate that real state-issued identification be checked before a vote is cast.
  •   Put cameras in the polling places, and film everything the poll workers and voters do — everything except the voter's ballot itself.
  •   Make every voter sign a statement (in his own language) acknowledging awareness that voting as a noncitizen, voting under someone else's name, or voting multiple times in the same election, are severe crimes.
  •   Ensure that every vote at least has a printed version for the voter to confirm before it is cast.
There's more, but that's the idea.  To operate a republic, the election process must be so secure that the results can truly be beyond question.  Unfortunately, today, the only question we have is how many races are stolen when the rightful winner's majority is insufficient to overcome the margin of fraud.

The Biden Administration Isn't Interested In Governing But In Criminalizing The Opposition.  Just to be clear: the Jan. 6 committee Democrats are proposing that anyone who thinks there was fraud in the 2020 election, anyone who thinks the election was something less than perfect, is fair game for hauling before the committee, being harassed by the FBI, having his property confiscated, maybe even indicted.  In their world, having the wrong opinion about the election is tantamount to a crime.  You might even get a visit from the FBI — better not delete your emails or destroy your devices.  (That only works if your last name rhymes with Flinton.)  Whatever the committee ends up doing, rest assured it is part of a larger effort to go beyond mere political theater and use the levers of government power to ensure that Trump cannot run again, that his supporters are under investigation, and that anyone who disagrees with the regime about the last election has a target on their back.

Facebook Worked With FBI to Spy on Americans Who Questioned 2020 Election.  According to Department of Justice sources, Facebook has been spying on the private messages and data of Americans who questioned the 2020 election results and reporting them to the FBI.  Since the election, Facebook has worked in conjunction with the FBI to report on "subversive" private messages, sending them to the FBI's domestic terrorism operational unit, supposedly in redacted form, a direct violation of Americans' First and Fourth Amendment rights.  "It was done outside the legal process and without probable cause," one of the sources told the New York Post.  "Facebook provides the FBI with private conversations which are protected by the First Amendment without any subpoena."  According to the Post, "These private messages then have been farmed out as 'leads' to FBI field offices around the country, which subsequently requested subpoenas from the partner US Attorney's Office in their district to officially obtain the private conversations that Facebook already had shown them."

Iran is Hacking Our Systems and Our Elections.  Ransomware, often paid out in cryptocurrency, has become a booming business especially for sanctioned economies like North Korea, Cuba, Russia, Venezuela and Iran.  The lines between state and private hackers is so thin as to often be imaginary.  Iran's hackers went well beyond ransomware to exactly the kind of election interference Dems pretend to care about.  When it isn't being conducted by one of their allied Islamic terror states.

Newly Discovered Police Body Cam Footage Implicates Top Tarrant County Texas Democrat Officials in Ballot Harvesting.  Newly discovered police body cam footage in Forth Worth, TX obtained by The Gateway Pundit shows that the claims made in True the Vote and Dinesh D'Souza's 2000Mules were not exclusive to the "swing states".  Or the 2020 election.  This footage implicates two top Democrat leaders in the county's party:  former Tarrant Co. Democratic Party (TCDP) chairwoman and now candidate for Tarrant Co Judge Deborah Peoples and the director at The Peoples Group, Stuart Clegg.  Clegg was also the executive director for the TCDP and Peoples was a member of the Tarrant County election board and commission responsible for overseeing the integrity of county elections.  You may remember Tarrant County from the 2020 election:  it was a red county for 56 years until the COVID lockdowns and a massive push for the fraud-ridden universal mail-in ballot system.

Maricopa County Under Fire for Appointing More Democrat than Republican Poll Workers.  The Republican National Committee (RNC) is demanding answers from Maricopa County officials after they appointed fewer Republican poll workers than Democrats, despite a legal obligation to have an equal number of poll workers, according to a letter obtained by Breitbart News.  Arizona law requires election officials to hire "an equal number" of Republican and Democrat election inspectors at all voting locations.  However, Maricopa county, which was the focus of several lawsuits and a contested recount stemming from the 2020 presidential election, hired over 100 more Democrat poll workers than Republicans during its August primary elections.

Proposed D.C. Bill Would Automatically Send Mail-In Ballots To Residents That Are Unregistered To Vote.  A newly proposed bill in Washington, D.C. would allow the city to automatically send mail-in ballots to all residents deemed eligible to vote, even if they aren't registered.  According to the digital magazine Bolts, "the city would take information it collects when residents interact with the Department of Motor Vehicles [(DMV)] and other agencies to maintain a constantly-updating list of people who are 'preapproved' to vote," with the only task left to the individuals listed being "to vote come election time."  Under the proposed law, "as long as someone has provided certain documents, the city would verify and record them as eligible: This would pre-qualify them as voters, even when they're not formally on voter rolls," the Bolts report reads.  "D.C. would then send people on this preapproved list a mail-in ballot for every election during the following two years.  They would never need to proactively register ... D.C. would also inform them that they can return a ballot or head to the polls to activate their registration."

DOJ Conceals Records About Biden's Use Of Federal Agencies To Influence Elections.  The Department of Justice (DOJ) is concealing key documents related to President Joe Biden's March 2021 order that directed executive agencies to develop plans for federal interference in state election administration.  On Sept. 8, the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) was scheduled to receive a series of government records from the DOJ that detailed how the agency is complying with Executive Order 14019.  That order mandated all federal departments to "consider ways to expand citizens' opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process."  Among these included the DOJ's 15-page "strategic plan" on how the agency intends to comply with Biden's executive order.  Instead of releasing the documents FGA requested pursuant to federal open records laws, however, the Biden DOJ released only a few records pertaining to the order, most of which were heavily redacted.

Why ballots must remain secret.  The biggest problem with the 2020 election, and it looks like the 2022 election as well, is the loss of the secret ballot by means of mass mail-in voting.  Non-secret ballots have a long history in America, none of it good.  Two major movements to expunge non-secret ballots from America, one in the political arena and the other in the corporate, took place.  The latter, like its main impetus, Wilma Soss, has been too easily forgotten given its crucial importance to the efficiency of the economy.

Everyone Around Biden Is an Election Denier, Including Him.  If you watched Joe Biden's primetime speech on Thursday, you would have seen him insist that anyone who questions the results of an election is a "threat to our democracy."  "Democracy cannot survive when one side believes that there are only two outcomes to an election: either they win or they were cheated," he claimed.  "And that's where MAGA Republicans are today."  Conveniently absent from his speech was the acknowledgment that Democrats have a long history of believing that the only two outcomes of an election are when they win or the election was stolen — including himself.  In 2020, when a supporter of his told him she thought Trump was an illegitimate president, he agreed.  In 2013, he also said he believed that Al Gore won the 2000 presidential election that he actually lost.  Biden's vice president, Kamala Harris, also said that Trump was an illegitimate president.  Biden's press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, also believes the 2016 election was stolen from Hillary.  On top of that his own chief of staff, Ron Klain, still believes that the 2000 election was "stolen" from Al Gore.

Electoral Fraud Goes Mainstream.  If you're one of those crazy "election deniers," you're not alone — the RNC website recently listed over 150 examples of Democrats claiming fraudulent election results, but only in elections they lost.  A YouTube video shows similar whiny complaints from Hilary Clinton, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and scores more.  Ask yourself, if there is no election fraud, then everything is fine, but what if it's true that elections can be rigged to favor one side or the other?  What would the consequences be if Americans no longer had the ability to choose their elected officials?  Why wouldn't you support anything that would secure accurate voting results in every local, state, and national election?

Clinton-Appointed Federal Judge Bars Arizona Officials From Enforcing New Law To Remove Dead Voters, Nonresidents, And Non-Citizens From Voter Rolls.  A Clinton-appointed federal Judge blocked a new Arizona election integrity law from being enforced in the upcoming 2022 General Election.  HB2247 is meant to clean the voter rolls and remove registrants who are registered in another state and no longer live in Arizona.  The new law would add a statement on voter registration forms, specifying that if a registrant permanently moves to another state after registering in this state, their registration will be canceled.  It would also direct the county recorder to cancel a voter registration when they confirm that the registered person is dead, that the person is not an Arizona resident or resident of that County, or that they are not a citizen of the United States.

Snap 'Accidentally' Gave Democratic Campaigns Access to Republican Voter Data.  Social media giant Snap reportedly made an "error" that gave leading Democratic campaigns and party committees access to a huge repository of Republican voter data, allowing them to tailor their midterm ads.  Axios reports the social media giant Snap claims to have made a mistake that allowed top Democratic campaigns and party committees to tap into a huge repository of Republican voter data, allowing them to hone and tailor their midterm ads.

RNC, Other Conservative Groups File Lawsuit Against Pennsylvania For Illegally Altering Ballots.  The Republican National Committee (RNC) announced on Friday that it will lead a lawsuit against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania over the issue of illegally "curing" ballots in elections, a process whereby election workers alter incomplete or unreadable ballots rather than treating them as the law requires.  "The RNC is joining with the NRSC, NRCC, Pennsylvania GOP, and concerned Pennsylvania voters to sue the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for unequal treatment of its citizens at the ballot box.  Pennsylvania Democrats, led by Governor Tom Wolf, are unconstitutionally flouting the law by failing to adopt uniform rules for how elections in the Keystone State are run," said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel in a statement. "This lawsuit will ensure that Pennsylvania voters have confidence in their elections and underscores the Republican Party's commitment to making it easier to vote and harder to cheat in Pennsylvania and nationwide."

13 Minutes of Never-Before-Seen Footage of Ballot Trafficking in Detroit, Michigan — Including Postal Workers!.  Election Integrity investigators in Detroit, Michigan captured never-before-seen footage of DOZENS of ballot traffickers dumping HUNDREDS of ballots into ballot drop boxes during the 2020 US presidential election.  The exclusive drop-box footage from the 2020 presidential election was obtained by The Gateway Pundit and Attorney John Burns.  The MC4EI team in Michigan spent hours scouring through the thousands of hours of security camera footage to put together this explosive 13-minute video.

Alaska: Republicans received 60% of vote and lost the race to a Democrat with 40% of vote due to ranked-choice voting.  Democrat Mary Peltola defeated Sarah Palin in the Alaska Special election to replace Rep. Don Young in Congress.  She is the first Democrat to win the House seat in solid red Alaska in 50 Years!  Ranked-choice voting and mail-in ballots were implemented by referendum in 2020. Republicans allowed this to happen.  Now the state is likely lost forever to Democrat cheating and maneuvering.

6 Ways Democrats Are 'Threatening Democracy'.  [#5] Undermining Election Integrity: Biden plans to focus his speech on shaming the conservative movement as one "that does not recognize free and fair elections."  But it's his administration, not the GOP, that is actively engaged in a federal takeover of elections.  Using Executive Order 14019, Biden demanded all federal agencies to create voter registration campaigns, even if that means ignoring state election rules and regulations and partnering with left-wing groups.  That's on top of all of the election shenanigans, rigging, and law-breaking Democrats have routinely used to meddle in U.S. elections.  Whether it's pushing ranked-choice voting to keep their preferred candidates in office, adding practices susceptible to fraud such as widespread mail-in balloting to elections last minute, or gladly accepting the political influence of Big Tech via Zuckbucks, Democrats are guilty of working overtime to make sure it's blue candidates, not red ones, who win at the polls.  At the same time, they conspire to do "whatever it takes" to keep Trump out of office, the sham January 6 Committee, Democrats, their NeverTrump allies, and the corrupt corporate media actively work to dismiss the legitimate election integrity concerns plaguing voters.

Dishonest 'journalism' rules the airwaves.  Turns out, evidence suggests that Mark Zuckerberg facilitated election fraud in Wisconsin, and the story was buried.  Instead, the media and other Democrats claim the election was the "most secure" and anyone who questions it is a threat to democracy, an election denier, and an election liar.  Former Wisconsin Supreme Court justice Mike Gableman alleged an "election bribery scheme" after conducting an investigation into anomalies.

Baked Alaskan: 60% of voters cast ballots for Republicans.  A Democrat won.  What happens when you combine an all-in or "jungle" primary with ranked-choice voting in the general election?  Putting the two modern "innovations" on elections together in Alaska produced this absurd result, in which Republicans lost a House seat despite getting 60% of the vote.  And get ready for it to happen all over again in two months:  [Tweet]

Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro and Lou Dobbs are deposed as part of $1.6 billion Dominion Voting lawsuit.  Fox News hosts Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro and Lou Dobbs have all been deposed over allegations they perpetuated election fraud lies and damaged the reputation of Dominion Voting by hosting friends and advocates of Donald Trump on-air.  Dominion filed a lawsuit against Fox News in March last year, alleging the network deliberately spread a false narrative that its machines and counting systems were rigged in favor of President Joe Biden.  It was a story that every news outlet in the world covered, but Dominion claims that Fox gave a particularly sympathetic ear to Trump's claims.  Carlson and Pirro were deposed last week whereas Dobbs was deposed yesterday.  Hannity is due to be questioned today, and Maria Bartiromo will be questioned next week.

Evidence of Democrats' conspiracy to sway [the] 2020 election [is] getting too big to hide.  [Scroll down] Dozens of former intelligence community leaders — those with the wherewithal and experience to recognize that Hunter Biden's laptop was legitimate — signed on to a letter discrediting the report as Russian disinformation.  They gave Facebook and Twitter the justification they needed to squash the story — even though it was true. [...] Hunter Biden's laptop had the potential to change the outcome of the 2020 election, and everyone knew it.  That's why the FBI allegedly delayed its investigation into Hunter Biden until after the election; why the New York Times and Washington Post confirmed that Hunter Biden's laptop was legitimate only after Biden was in office; and why Big Tech tycoons such as Zuckerberg are only admitting they were wrong to crack down on the story years after the fact.  They were all in on it.  It was a full-court press by our institutions to interfere in the 2020 election.  And thanks to a group of FBI whistleblowers — something we've never had before — it's all starting to come to light.

Arizona Supreme Court Election Integrity Wins over Soros Ballot Measure.  Supporters for election integrity scored a major victory Friday when the Arizona Supreme Court held that Proposition 210 — a ballot initiative to undo Arizona's new election integrity law, financed with George Soros's money — cannot be on the November ballot due to a lack of valid signatures.  Arizona is one of the states that, in the aftermath of the 2020 election, decided that statutory reforms were needed to make it easy to vote, but hard to cheat, to increase public confidence in the election result.

Black Americans File Federal Lawsuit Against NYC for Law Allowing Foreign Nationals to Vote.  A handful of black Americans, residing in New York City, have filed a federal lawsuit against the city's Board of Elections for a local law that would allow nearly a million foreign nationals to vote in citywide elections.  As Breitbart News has chronicled, Democrats on the 51-member New York City Council approved a plan last month that allows more than 800,000 foreign nationals with green cards, visas, and work permits the opportunity to vote in citywide elections so long as they have resided in the city for at least 30 consecutive days.

Black voters say NYC's immigrant voting plan is racially motivated attempt to shift power.  Black residents in New York filed a lawsuit Monday [8/29/2022] arguing that the city's attempt to allow noncitizens to vote in municipal elections is unconstitutional because it was a "racially motivated" move to siphon political power from Black residents to other racial or ethnic minorities.  The lawsuit, filed by the Public Interest Legal Foundation on behalf of four residents, said city council members who wrote the law last year made explicit racial appeals, saying they wanted to change "the color of the skin" of people who were voting in elections.  And that hurts Black voters in particular, because the new noncitizen voters will be heavily Hispanic and Asian, and are expected to dilute the strength of Blacks in a city where voting breaks down along racial lines, the plaintiffs said.

Donald Trump: Declare Me Rightful Winner or Redo 'Fraud' 2020 Election.  President Donald Trump argued Monday that he should be declared the winner of the 2020 election, citing fraud and election interference by the FBI.  The former president pointed to reports that the FBI worked to bury the story about Hunter Biden's laptop on social media right before the 2020 election.  "This is massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before in our Country," Trump wrote on social media.  Trump said the FBI purposefully tried to stop him from winning the 2020 election.

Montana election integrity organization found more than 120,000 invalid votes cast during 2020 election.  More evidence has emerged detailing how massive the Democrat-led fraud was during the 2020 election that was stolen from President Donald Trump and Republicans.  While much of the attention post-2020 has focused on battleground states like Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Georgia, other states appear to have suffered major fraud as well, including Montana, a new report notes.  The Montana Election Integrity Project said that its investigators found more than 120,000 invalid votes out of a sample of just over 612,000 cast.  The organization "canvassed six Montana counties to ask questions about the Montana 2020 General Election in which 612,075 votes were cast.  The counties canvassed were Carbon, Flathead, Lewis & Clark, Missoula, Ravalli, and Yellowstone," the report says, according to the group's website.  "Of the 4,347 voters for whom the canvassers obtained information, we found 1,138 voters who cast votes which are considered to be invalid.  This is 26.2% of the voters canvassed.  Extrapolated across the whole state of Montana this represents 120,261 invalid votes!" the site continued.

Judge Denies Michigan Secretary of State's Motion To Dismiss Lawsuit Removing 26,000 Dead Registrants From Voter Rolls.  In a win for election integrity advocates, the United States Western District Court of Michigan denied Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson's attempt at dismissing Public Interest Legal Foundation's (PILF) lawsuit pertaining to the failure to remove dead registrants from the state's voter rolls.  The court also dismissed motions to intervene from leftist groups, such as the A. Philip Randolph Institute, the Michigan Alliance for Retired Americans, and Rise, Inc.  In 2020, PILF had notified the Secretary of State's office about dead registrants remaining on Michigan's voter rolls, but Benson did nothing about it.  In November 2021, the nonprofit filed a lawsuit against Benson for her failure to remove 25,975 deceased registrants from voter lists.  According to PILF's own analysis of the 25,975 deceased registrants:
  •   23,663 registrants have been dead for five years or more
  •   17,479 registrants have been dead for at least a decade
  •   3,956 registrants have been dead for at least 20 years

The Debate Continues as Dominion Deposes Hannity, Carlson, Others Over Trump's 2020 Election 'Narrative'.  Month after month, news cycle after news cycle, some things never change, including the never-ending debate about the 2020 presidential election, with allegations that the election was "rigged" and "stolen," Donald Trump's role in the aftermath, and, on a journalistic sidetrack, the $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems against Fox News for claiming Dominion was complicit in voter fraud.  So, here's the question, in this case: Was Dominion a villain or victim?  The answer depends on which side one is predisposed to believe.  For those in the middle, questions remain for both sides.

Lake v Hobbs Case in Arizona Dismissed.  We're Sure You Can Guess Why.  In one of the plaintiff's allegations, they claimed that the election equipment must undergo "thorough testing by independent, neutral experts" according to ARS 16-442(A)(B).  While Lake v Hobbs does not deal with the 2020 election, it is worth noting that Arizona machines in 2020 were not certified by an accredited testing lab.  Furthermore, it must also be noted that these testing laboratories have a glaring conflict of interest in certifying these machines.  They are paid to do this work by the manufacturer of the machines they're certifying.

Democrat-Linked Group Claims 96,000 Extra Immigrant Voters in Georgia.  A Democrat-backed group claims to have naturalized almost 100,000 legal immigrants in Georgia before the November elections.  "Over 96,000 newly naturalized Americans in the state, who naturalized between 2016 and 2020, could significantly influence the outcome of the 2022 midterm elections,' said the press statement by National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA), the SEIU union, and various Georgia-based, pro-migration groups. [...] The naturalization includes many Indians, who are one of the most pro-diversity, pro-Democratic immigrant blocs.  "The number of newly naturalized citizens originally from India, 11,188, is nearly equal to the margin of victory during the November 2020 presidential election," the statement said.  Georgia used to be a solidly red state.  However, the growing number of legal and illegal migrants recruited by businesses has allowed the Democrats to gain state seats and to win a national Senate majority in 2021 when Georgians elected two Democrat Senators.

Former WI Justice Michael Gableman Calls Out ERIC System and WI Election Fraud at Moment of Truth Summit.  Former WI Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman was contracted by RINO Robin Vos to conduct an in-depth investigation into the 2020 election.  In this investigation, he found massive discrepancies in the way the WEC conducted the 2020 election.  Justice Gableman called for the legislature in Wisconsin to "take a very hard look at decertification". [...] He also said "ERIC's stated purpose is to keep our election rolls accurate.  That is a lie.  Lets just say that... that is a lie.  What is my evidence?  The evidence is in WI we have approximately 5.5M citizens.  Of whom, approximately 4M are eligible to vote.  So if I ask you 'how many people, at most, should WI have on its voter rolls?'  If you're tracking, you'll say no more than 4M.  That's the number of eligible voters.  We have over 7m names on those voter rolls... The excess of which is all available to the George Soros funded ERIC.  And they can do whatever they want with those names and we're not allowed to know.  Neither we nor any other state is allowed to know."

Court Rejects Democrat Official's Attempt to Keep 26K Dead People on Michigan Voter Rolls.  The U.S. Western District Court of Michigan denied a plea by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) that sought to halt a lawsuit alleging she kept nearly 26,000 dead registrants on the state's voter rolls.  In November 2021, as Breitbart News reported, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) filed suit against Benson accusing her of keeping nearly 26,000 dead registrants on Michigan voter rolls and thus violating the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).  Benson, in response, sought to have the lawsuit thrown out.  On Thursday, the district court denied Benson's effort to dismiss the case.  "It is astonishing that Secretary Benson is so vigorously opposing effective list maintenance," PILF President J. Christian Adams said in a statement.

Out of Outrage.  [Scroll down] It was before the stolen election, when all of the gears were lining up and no one put a stop to it.  It was when witness after witness, whistleblower after whistleblower came forward to attest to the steal and the more than 50% of the people who thought there were significant errors in the election, but no one seemed interested in investigating the most important threat to the republic as has ever taken place in the open broadness of daylight.  Silence.  It was in the recognition that something like that could take place and be swept under the rug, that literally NO ONE on the left felt the slightest loyalty to the union to demand that an accounting take place and to allow for the chips to fall where they may.  Civil war occurs when a significant percentage of the political class and those close to the sources of power no longer have any loyalty to the existing political structure or the abuses that structure prevents.

26 Baltimore Residents Received Their 2020 Ballots in the Mail Three Weeks Ago.  According to Just The News, some voters in Baltimore received their mail-in ballots earlier this month.  The bad news is that those ballots were for the 2020 election.  On Aug. 5, 2022, a tray of undelivered ballots was discovered.  To the post office's credit, they were delivered to the homes in Southeast Baltimore on Aug. 6.  Better late than... never?  It's easy to write this one off.  After all, we're only talking about 26 votes in a traditionally blue state that Biden won with 1,985,023 votes to Trump's 976,414.  The results were probably a foregone conclusion.  But during my years as a reporter, I covered a city council election in which the incumbent won by a single vote.  And while 26 ballots were not enough to swing things one way or the other for the Oval Office, it would be interesting to see if they would have affected any down-ballot candidate races or propositions.

Two Years after election, Post Office just now finds 2020 ballots.  While President Donald Trump, and many others, have been expressing concern over anomalies that became evident during the 2020 presidential election, Democrats and many establishment figures in the Washington, D.C., bureaucracy have expressed that it was flawless, nearly perfect, without so much as a hint of a failure.  Now a Post Office in Baltimore apparently has turned up evidence of that perfection.  WMAR-TV, the city's ABC affiliate, said the USPS facility found a tray of undelivered mail, and it included 26 blank ballots from 2020.  The letters were just delivered.  And now, the Baltimore Board of Elections is trying "to understand" how this happened.  It's long been known that mail-in ballots are more susceptible fraud than in-person voting, but there's no information about whether that was the intent with this situation.

Florida Gov Ron DeSantis announces 20 people across the state have been charged with voter fraud for casting ballots after they were convicted of murder or sexual assault.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday that 20 people across his state have been charged with voter fraud.  The governor did not say in what election they had voted but said they had come from Broward, Palm Beach and Miami Dade counties and had been arrested for voting 'because they were convicted of murder or sexual assault.'  Floridians passed a constitutional amendment restoring felons' voting rights after they've after they've served their sentences and paid all fines, fees and restitution, but those convicted of a sex offense or murder are banned from voting forever unless they are granted a pardon to do so.

Florida in Process of Arresting 20 Individuals for Voter Fraud.  Florida is in the process of arresting 20 individuals who have been charged for voter fraud, Sunshine State officials announced Thursday [8/18/2022].  Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed landmark election integrity legislation in April, creating an Office of Election Crimes and Security under Florida's State Department, which reviews and investigates allegations of voter fraud.

Most Americans Support Election Audits Immediately After Polling Day.  A majority of American voters support states requiring audits "immediately after elections" to protect election integrity, according to a new poll by Rasmussen Reports sponsored by The National Pulse.  Asked, "Should every state require that ballots be available immediately after elections for bipartisan voter reviews to enhance election confidence and transparency?"  56 percent of likely voters supported the idea while just 23 percent of likely voters opposed it.  The Rasmussen data showed that 68 percent of Republicans — considerably more than just 45 percent of their Democrat-voting counterparts — supported the push for election integrity.  57 percent of Independents were also in support.

104% of Voting Aged Population In MI Is Registered To Vote!  For months, grassroots groups have sounded the alarm about ERIC (Electronic Registration Information Center), a system used in 31 states that was originally funded by the Soros Open Society, and how it is bloating the voter rolls.  Now, evidence indicates ERIC is politically compromised.  Meanwhile, the clock ticks down to the 2022 election, even as the number of Michigan's registered voters climbs dangerously — and impossibly — to 104% of its Voting Aged Population (VAP).

Census Bureau Admits Overcounting 7 Blue States, Just 1 Red State.  In a shocking report, the U.S. Census Bureau recently admitted that it overcounted the populations of eight states and undercounted the populations of six states in the 2020 census.  All but one of the states overcounted is a blue state, and all but one of the undercounted states is red.  Those costly errors will distort congressional representation and the Electoral College.  It means that when the Census Bureau reapportioned the House of Representatives, Florida was cheated out of two additional seats it should have gotten; Texas missed out on another seat; Minnesota and Rhode Island each kept a representative they shouldn't have; and Colorado was awarded a new member of the House it didn't deserve.  These harmful errors also mean billions in federal funds will be misallocated. Funding for many federal programs is distributed to the states based on population.  Overcounted states will now receive a larger share of federal funds than they are entitled to, at the expense of the undercounted states.

U.S. Postal Service Just Institutionalized Election Interference With New Mail-In-Ballot Division.  Starbucks recently asked the National Labor Relations Board to suspend all pending and ongoing votes to unionize at its U.S. stores due to concerns stemming from mail-in ballots.  The franchise's objections once again raise questions about the credibility of election systems that rely on mail-in ballots.  As with coffee companies, how much more with the American electoral process?  With hundreds of millions of dollars of campaign material and increasing numbers of ballots in the mail, postal efficiency and honesty are becoming increasingly vital to free and fair elections.  Ostensibly to address some of these concerns, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) announced on July 28 that it was creating the Election and Government Mail Services division.

NBA Will Not Schedule Games on Election Day.  The NBA will not be scheduling any games on the midterm election day, but all 30 teams will play the night before on November 7, the Associated Press stated.  The league looks to use this as an opportunity to encourage its fans to get out and vote to "amplify the need for civic engagement."

It doesn't take all day to vote.  The polls are open for twelve hours on Election Day.  Anybody who really wants to vote can do so.

Judge Blocks Texas Restrictions on Using P.O. Boxes For Voter Registration.  Some 5,000 Texans who used a P.O. box as a voter registration address will likely be able to cast a ballot in the state's midterm elections after a federal judge blocked a 2021 state election law.  Senate Bill 1111 attempted to tighten residency guidelines for Texas voters, but was struck down this month by U.S. District Court Judge Lee Yeakel, an appointee under former president George W. Bush.  Yeakel, who presides over the Austin Division for the Western District of Texas, found in a summary judgement that the state used vague language in the election law and parts of it failed constitutional scrutiny.  Texas' Attorney General Ken Paxton appealed the decision last week to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, according to State Sen. Paul Bettencourt (R-Houston), who authored the election bill.

L.A. Claims 27% Error Rate in Recall Signatures; < 1% Error Rate in Mail-in Ballots in 2020.  Los Angeles County reported Monday that over 27% of the signatures submitted on petitions to recall District Attorney George Gascón were invalid — after reporting that less than 1% of mail-in ballots were invalid in the 2020 election.  The county reported that it rejected 195,783 of the 715,833 signatures submitted, roughly 27.3%.  The reasons given included that some voters were found to be unregistered; incorrect addresses were given; or signatures did not match those on file.

Gascón Recall Campaign Will Review Rejected Signatures; Possible Legal Action.  The campaign to recall Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón will review the signatures that were rejected by county officials, a spokesperson told Breitbart News, one day after enough signatures were rejected to defeat the recall effort.  Gascón, who took office in December 2020 after being elected with the help of millions of dollars in spending by left-wing billionaire George Soros, has pursued radical "reform" policies that many voters blame for a surge of violent crime in L.A.  He is one of 75 "progressive" prosecutors Soros has installed across the country.  In July, the recall campaign handed in 26% more than the required target of 566,857 signatures.  But on Monday, county officials claimed that 27% of the signatures had been invalid for a variety of reasons, causing the recall effort to fail.

Suddenly, mail-in voting can't be trusted!
Starbucks calls for halt of mail-in voting for union elections.  Seattle-based Starbucks has requested that the National Labor Relations Board temporarily suspend mail-in-voting in union elections over allegations that labor board personnel coordinated with union representatives to improperly influence voting.  In a Monday letter to the chairman and general counsel of the NLRB, Starbucks alleges "highly improper, systemic misconduct" and that board agents secretly coordinated with union agents in a concerted effort to "tip the scales" in favor of the union in an election at an Overland, Kansas location.

Democratic Operatives Control Voter Rolls In 31 States, Report Shows.  A prominent voter-roll management system used by 31 states and the District of Columbia has politically compromised ties, according to a new report by independent research group Verity Vote.  The Electronic Registration Information Center, or ERIC, was sold to states as a quick and easy way to update their voter rolls.  Started in 2012 by far-left activist David Becker and the left-leaning Pew Charitable Trusts, the program is ostensibly run by the member states themselves.  But as public records show, Democratic operatives are working overtime under the cover of ERIC to accomplish their partisan goals and drive Democratic voter turnout.

Census errors will distort elections, funding for next decade.  In a shocking report, the U.S. Census Bureau recently admitted that it overcounted the populations of eight states and undercounted the populations of six states in the 2020 census.  All but one of the states overcounted is a blue state, and all but one of the undercounted states is red.  Those costly errors will distort congressional representation and the Electoral College.  It means that when the Census Bureau reapportioned the House of Representatives, Florida was cheated out of two additional seats it should have gotten; Texas missed out on another seat; Minnesota and Rhode Island each kept a representative they shouldn't have, and Colorado was awarded a new member of the House it didn't deserve.

Isn't it remarkable that the "errors" all go in the same direction?

Vote-by-mail is the worst way to run an election.  2020 was the first time an election was conducted by mass vote-by-mail.  It was a train wreck.  According to federal data, election officials do not know what happened to nearly 15 million mail ballots in 2020.  Some of these ballots were blowing in the winds on Nevada roads, and some were in stacks on apartment lobby floors.  Some ended up in landfills.  No surprise considering that the United States Post Office aspired to a 95% success rate in getting election mail delivered on time.  Put another way, the post office was content with a 5% failure rate.

President Trump is Our 'Canary in the Coal Mine'.  There have been a host of election process investigations since November, 2020, when Donald Trump, who won 74 million popular votes, was declared to have lost to Joe Biden's alleged 81 million, in a total purported voting population of 158 million.  This would be an increase of 22 million over the turnout in 2016, in a country in which the only significant population demographic that's increasing is that of non-citizens.  It is statistically dubious, leading to the logical conclusion that a lot of those votes, certainly millions if not tens of millions, were fabricated.  What have almost all the investigations found?  Even the most cursory review of their findings shows numerous opportunities for fraud — the lack of ID checks, the opportunity for round-tabling, the lack of any chain of custody in most non-election day voting... dozens of methods putting tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands, of votes per state in question.  Nonetheless, these reports always conclude that they cannot "prove" that fraud occurred.

Kansas Recounting Abortion Vote Amid Fear of Irregularities in Voting Data.  After the defeat of a proposed constitutional amendment in Kansas that would have affirmed that there is no "constitutional right to abortion," conservatives have launched the first recount of a state ballot measure in 30 years.  The Associated Press reported that the amendment failed by 18 percentage points, or approximately 165,000 votes.  The organizer of the recount, Melissa Leavitt, has reportedly put up the $220,000 bond required by Kansas law to cover the costs of the hand recount, citing data irregularities she says she saw in the days following the election.

The 2024 Election Is Being Rigged Right Now In Plain Sight.  [Scroll down]  The system, called the Electronic Registration Information Center, or ERIC, is supposedly a convenient tool that simply allows states to update their voter rolls.  But its real purpose, according to a recent report by independent research group Verity Vote, is to boost Democrat voter turnout by forwarding state voter roll data, including records from unregistered voters, to CEIR.  As Marshall reports, "CEIR then develops targeted mailing lists and sends them back to the states to use for voter registration outreach.  As part of their agreement with ERIC, states are not allowed to disclose any data they send to nor receive from ERIC, however, ERIC is not under the same constraints and is able to work with CEIR."  In addition, it seems ERIC doesn't exist to purge or update voter rolls so much as to inflate them, identifying 17 million new voters in 2020 compared to purging just 3 million from state voter rolls.  Despite its failure to clean voter rolls, a majority of states are still using the system, which is run by a left-wing activist named David Becker.

Robin Vos fires Michael Gableman, leaving GOP election review in limbo.  After 14 months, hundreds of headlines, more than $1 million in taxpayer dollars and a bitter, public feud, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos on Friday fired Michael Gableman, the former Wisconsin Supreme Court justice he hired last summer to review Wisconsin's 2020 presidential election.  The speaker's decision came just days after Gableman — and former President Donald Trump — endorsed Vos' primary opponent, Adam Steen, whom the speaker narrowly defeated Tuesday.  Speaking to reporters after unofficial results came in on election night, Vos called Gableman "an embarrassment to the state" and said he would speak with members of his caucus about the former justice's future.  In a statement on Friday [8/12/2022], Vos said, after hearing from members of his caucus since Tuesday, "it is beyond clear to me that we only have one choice in this matter, and that's to close the Office of Special Counsel."

Elections Belong to the States.  For all state elections, it's very clear that the state legislature has the authority to write laws about how they are conducted.  For example, the legislature in Florida could declare that elections for state officeholders would only be on February 29, on Pi Day (March 14, 3.14 in European notation), or some other silly rule.  But as long as that rule was applied evenly and did not prevent any particular group of otherwise eligible Florida voters from voting, it would be legal.  The same rule applies to voter registration.  The 26th Amendment does require states to allow 18-year-olds to vote but otherwise creates no other specific rules.  States are fully free to restrict non-citizens from voting because the 26th Amendment only guarantees the franchise to citizens.  We could go on with a long list of other possible rules, but note that I have said absolutely nothing yet about federal elections.

It Happened Again:  Cherokee County, Kansas Election Results Reversed After "Vote Flip" Discovered.  Nothing to see here, folks.  Just a human error, technical glitch, or "we caught it in time". Those are the excuses we hear every single time.  Every time.  Antrim County, Dekalb County, Williamson County, Windham, NH. The list goes on and on and on of jurisdictions that have some "human error" or "technical glitch" that causes votes to flip, change or swap.  Enter our latest example:  Cherokee County, Kansas.  Not to be confused with Cherokee County, GA that recently went against the will of their constituents by refusing to conduct a hand recount and sided with highly questionable legal guidance from a conflicted attorney who used to work for the Secretary of States Office that is being called into question.

Fraud and Future Elections.  Michigan Republican and former state senator Patrick Colbeck is facing potential legal action over his allegations of widespread fraud in the 2020 U.S. presidential election. [...] Curiously, there does not seem to be any defamation action against The New York Times, which in June 2020 quoted bipartisan election-security experts and a federal judge who called Georgia's recently purchased $100 million Dominion system "insecure."  The same article pointed out that the company's products failed certification in Texas the previous year.  Nor has the Associated Press run askance of Dominion lawyers, despite its 2018 report citing experts who accused Dominion and its major competitors of having "long skimped on security in favor of convenience, making it more difficult to detect intrusions."  The article mentioned "chronic problems" and "multiple critical vulnerabilities" dating back eight years.  CNN seems immune to defamation charges as well.

Welcome To The Banana Republic of Biden!  [Scroll down]  The primary election results in Arizona only accelerated the process.  Trump-endorsed candidates ran the table against the GOP establishment.  There was an attempted steal in Maricopa County against Kari Lake that was partially thwarted, I am told, because she won every other county in Arizona and the number of manufactured votes needed would indicate a 125% voter participation rate in Maricopa County.  The disgraced Mike Pence and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey both endorsed Kari Lake's primary opponent Karrin Taylor Robson — and it didn't matter.  Pinal County "ran out of ballots" on Election Day and mailed 63,000 mail-in ballots to the wrong voters — and it didn't matter.  Maricopa County erected a covered fence around their counting center to prepare for the steal — and it didn't matter.  The 2020 election playbook was just too obvious this time.  Too many people noticed.  Too many angry voters showed up in front of Maricopa County's election offices to protest.  There was no way to explain why Maricopa needed two more days than every other county in Arizona to count its primary votes.  The old playbook didn't work.

Joe Biden Likely to Extend National COVID Emergency Declaration — To Facilitate Mail-in Ballots and Harvesting?  Politico is reporting on the likelihood that Joe Biden is preparing to extend the national COVID-19 state of emergency through the 2022 midterm elections.  The debate, as outlined in just about every media narrative surrounding renewals of a national COVID emergency, is obtusely presented as if the primary political concern is public health.  Again, everyone must pretend not to know the true motive of the "emergency" is extending unilateral executive power and all of the control mechanisms therein.  One mechanism would include the use of 'Mail-in election ballots', which has absolutely nothing to do with public health.  The article appears to be somewhat testing the proverbial public winds.

Arizona Enters Day Three Still Counting Ballots.  According to election officials in Maricopa County, Arizona, they will provide further updates on their ballot counting efforts on Thursday after 7pm.  The election was Tuesday.  Apparently, in Arizona it takes several days to count election ballots or something, and we are not supposed to think this is odd. [...] According to Maricopa County election officials they have counted 715,941 ballots[.]  According to the Arizona Secretary of State office, they are reporting 698,981 votes for governor were cast in Maricopa County [402,023(R), 296,958(D)]  There are 16,968 more ballots reported from Maricopa County than votes cast for governor as reported by the Secretary of State.  Did 16,968 voters in Maricopa County cast ballots without voting for governor?

Georgia Secretary of State's Office Admits To 2020 Election Recount "Errors".  The attorney for Georgia's Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has been forced to admit in writing that Fulton County did not conduct a proper and legal recount of their 2020 election results.  In an email dated July 29th, 2022, the attorney for Georgia's Secretary of State (named C. Ryan Germany) admits to a number of bad practices among the public officials that handle elections in Georgia to concerned citizen Joe Rossi.  The most important point is that the Georgia Secretary of State's Office cannot support the results of Fulton County's hand recount of their 2020 election results:  "As part of the allegations that you made, our investigators looked at the alleged violations and found that Fulton did make mistakes in their audit counting/reporting.  Those are what have been referred to the AG's office."  The second point is that the Georgia Secretary of State did not check or supervise or verify the results of hand recounts from Georgia counties.  In other words, the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is not doing his job.

Colorado Sec State Candidate Tina Peters Sues Every Clerk in Colorado over Recount Procedures.  The El Paso County, Co. hand recount is now done.  At least for now.  Lawsuits filed are challenging the legality of the recount.  Earlier this week, The Gateway Pundit reported that the team of local candidates in El Paso County, CO filed a lawsuit against the Secretary of State and the El Paso Co Clerk.  The lawsuit would compel the CO Secretary of State to conduct the recount while assigning the Clerk and Recorder as an official observer to the recount.  It is alleged in the lawsuit that the current method of testing and conducting the recount is inconsistent with Colorado Revised Statutes.

What We Must Do to Restore Confidence in Our Elections.  According to Patrick Basham, there are such things as "non-polling metrics" — things like comparative party registrations, turnouts in the primary elections, social media followings, attendance at campaign rallies and other measures that had, prior to the 2020 presidential election, predicted the outcome of presidential elections with 100% accuracy.  In 2020, all these measures pointed to a Trump victory.  In attendance at campaign rallies, for example, Trump's average attendance exceeded Biden's by a average ratio of 343 to 1.  And yet Biden won. [...] And there were hundreds of affidavits charging malfeasance, and there were whistleblowers in Pennsylvania and Georgia.  There were audits in Arizona and Montana showing potential fraud.  And, most recently, there was True the Vote/Dinesh D'Souza's documentary 2000 Mules, which, through cell-phone geo-tracking and surveillance videotapes, showed persons, often in the dead of night, apparently stuffing ballot drop boxes.  None of these, at least so far, have been sufficient evidence for bring a charge of vote fraud against specific individuals.  But, the assurances of Democrats, major media and others notwithstanding, they certainly cast legitimate doubt on the integrity of the 2020 election.

Kari Lake Wins Nail-Biter in Arizona Despite Apparent Mail-In Ballot Fraud.  Despite a double-digit polling lead a day before the election, Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake was nearly stunned by Karrin Taylor Robson in the Arizona primary.  Lake spent the entire night clawing back from being way behind.  The reason:  Early voting and mail-in ballots were the first counted and Robson outperformed anyone's wildest dreams in those arenas.  In the end, in-person voting won out, delivering the victory for Lake.

The Big Lies We Cannot Question.  The biggest lie allegedly spread by Republicans, now called "The Big Lie," is to claim the 2020 election was illegitimate.  But even if the 2020 election was not compromised due to a relentlessly hostile and partisan media, endless political persecution designed to damage Donald Trump's reelection campaign, voting rules that were violated and manipulated in swing states, Zuckerbucks, and possibly much more, this assertion still isn't a Republican "lie." For better or for worse, there are diverse opinions within the ranks of Republicans.  Some think it was a stolen election; others don't.  But no such dissent exists among Democrats over some of the biggest lies ever told.

A New Bill Takes On 'Zuckerbucks' and 'Bidenbucks'.  There were many things wrong with the 2020 election, but one of the biggest was the massive amounts of 'Zuckerbucks' used to influence the structure of elections at the local level.  Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan injected $350 million into over 2,500 election departments through the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative along with another $69.5 million to secretaries of state, disproportionately benefiting Democrat electorates.  As David Horowitz and John Perazzo wrote in their expose of the ugly influence operation, the grant money had to be used to "suspend existing election laws in order to promote universal mail-in voting", "eliminate or weaken signature-matching requirements and ballot-receipt deadlines for mail-in votes", "enable the proliferation of unmonitored ballot drop boxes" and "create unprecedented opportunities for illegal ballot harvesting" among other measures.

A Declaration Of Dissolution:  Wisconsin Supreme Court Fires The Starting Gun.  A court of law has finally confirmed it:  The 2020 election was "illegitimate."  And all the demands for sufficient evidence of voter fraud to reverse the outcome were a red herring.  The truly dispositive factor, as stated by a Republican Wisconsin state legislator in a March hearing and affirmed in the opinion:  "If a vote is cast in an illegal process, it's an illegal vote!"  The reasons for legislatively enacted absentee ballot protections are clear.  Justice Bradley quotes the Wisconsin Legislature's rationale:  "(P)revent the potential for fraud or abuse ... overzealous solicitation of absent electors who may prefer not to participate in an election ... undue influence on an absent elector ... or other similar abuses."

Wisconsin clerks refer 10 new voter fraud cases from 2020 election.  Ten criminal voter fraud referrals related to the 2020 election have been made over the past year by local clerks, according to a Wisconsin Elections Commission report.  This brings the total number of voter fraud referrals for the 2020 election up to 22.  In the most recent report, however, several referrals were for "multiple elections," meaning that the total number may be higher.  Some cases referred to district attorneys involved a person voting in person and absentee by mail in the 2020 election.  Others involved voting in two different states or voter impersonation.  Voting twice is against Wisconsin law, regardless of intent, the Epoch Times reported.

Out-Of-State Democrats Pay Millions To Influence Kansas Election Because Abortion Is On The Ballot.  Kansans head to the polls Tuesday [8/2/2022] to vote on the proposed "Value Them Both" constitutional amendment that seeks to overturn the Kansas Supreme Court's decision in Hodes & Nauser v. Schmidt that declared that the state constitution guarantees a "fundamental right to abortion."  Many Kansans may not realize, however, that the votes they cast on Tuesday may have been heavily influenced by out-of-state abortion apologists who contributed a whopping 71 percent of the $6.54 million spent by the lead group campaigning against the amendment.

Bombshell Presentation Reveals Identities Of Maricopa County Elections Employees Who Deleted Files From Election Server Before Maricopa County Audit.  We The People AZ Alliance hosted an election security forum in Maricopa County on Saturday [7/30/2022], featuring testimony from expert witnesses and state legislators. [...] Election investigator Matt Vanbiber also shared his discoveries from the Maricopa County Elections Department's public footage.  He finally revealed the identities of individuals who illegally deleted elections files from the Elections Management Server in April 2021.  This data was deleted before the voting machines were delivered to Senate auditors in compliance with a subpoena.  Federal law requires these files to be kept for 22 months.  Maricopa County officials previously admitted that these files were "deleted" in a Congressional hearing but later walked it back and said that the files were "archived."  This was one of the many law violations discovered by the Arizona audit and other Maricopa County's 2020 Election investigations.

Racine, Wisconsin Rolls Out Its Mobile Home Voting Station on Wheels — Paid for Exclusively with Zuckerbucks.  The courts recently banned ballot drop boxes in the state but apparently, mobile home traveling voting machines are just fine. [...] It's the first of its kind in Wisconsin.  Soon Democrats will steal and manufacture all of their ghost votes by mobile precincts.  You don't have to be a genius to see that happening.  City volunteers and staff work in the buses.  But no GOP observers.

U.S. Postal Service Opens Permanent Political Division, Dedicated to the Delivery and Return of Mail-in Election Ballots.  With mail-in ballots becoming a feature of all future elections, the United States government, specifically the United States Postal Service (USPS) is now creating a permanent division inside USPS to control the delivery and return of the election ballots.  Do you know the political affiliation of your mail courier?  As often said, it's not the vote that matters, it's the counting.  [O]r in this instance, the collection of the votes that really matters.  Democrat lawyer Mark Elias, in charge of protecting all fraudulent voting initiatives on behalf of the Democrat National Committee, is happy with the news.  Keep in mind the union representing 300,000 U.S. postal workers previously endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for president.  The National Association of Letter Carriers, is a fully compromised left-wing division of the USPS.  The USPS has just created a division of NALC employees exclusively to handle mail-in voting, just in time for the mid-term election.

Judge issues an election integrity win in New Mexico.  A federal judge has allowed an election transparency initiative to publish voter registration records publicly online to move forward despite objections from New Mexico election regulators.  Granting the preliminary injunction Friday, District Judge James O. Browning blocked defendants New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas and New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver from prosecuting the plaintiff, Voter Reference Foundation (VRF), for publishing information it has already obtained as the case moves forward.

Los Angeles bans observers from watching George Gascon recall count.  Monitors will not be allowed to view the vote-counting process to recall District Attorney George Gascon because the county of Los Angeles does not view the event as an election, county officials say.  However, opponents insist that the law clearly states that the recall is an election and the process should be public.  Support from Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democratic politicians helped usher far-left Gascon into office two years ago, and the recall campaign wants to make sure the voter petitions are accurately counted to place the measure on a ballot.  "We are concerned about it, and we have attorneys looking at it," retired LAPD Sgt. Dennis Zine, one of the campaign organizers, said of the petition counting.

Maricopa County Official Is Panicked Voters May Bring Their Own Pen to Polls.  Let me preface this article by telling all of my readers:  You can use any blue or black ballpoint pen you bring to the voting booth or poll.  Do not let anyone there force you or pressure you into using their pen against your wishes.  On Tuesday, The Gateway Pundit reported that SharpieGate 2.0 was perhaps in the making when Maricopa Co Recorder Stephen Richer about faced on his July 7th tweet saying "use any black or blue pen".  He tweeted on July 26th that "we will give ALL voters a special pen at voting locations.  PLEASE PLEASE use this pen."  He then states that other pens don't dry quick enough and can "gunk" the tabulators, requiring cleaning.

High-Ranking Member Of Wisconsin Assembly Calls For Decertification Of 2020 Election Results.  There has been an internal civil war brewing in Wisconsin's Republican Party between Republicans who believe that we should move past the 2020 election without passing election integrity measures or seeing if the results were valid.  Wisconsin's Assembly Speaker, Robin Vos, has turned on President Trump and came out last week saying that he turned his back on President Trump when he asked him to look in to the results of the 2020 election.  One of Wisconsin's most influential State Representatives joined the growing chorus of people who want to decertify the 2020 election results this week.  Wisconsin state Rep. Janel Brandtjen, R-Menomonee Falls, announced Friday that she would support a decertification of the 2020 presidential election.

The Demise of American Citizenship.  After the blatant and unconstitutional voting law changes that allowed the Democrat party and the ruling elites to fraudulently win the 2020 presidential election, one of the basic birthrights of American citizenship, voting in fair and free elections, has been permanently imperiled.  Millions of mail-in ballots with no security controls were indiscriminately distributed and unaccounted for throughout the length and breadth of the country, at least 4-8 million ballots were illegally "harvested" by paid campaign workers, and per the documentary film "2000 Mules" hundreds of thousands of ballots were feloniously "stuffed" into innumerable drop-off boxes.  The denials of election fraud and subsequent cover-ups by the media and the ruling class ring hollow and insincere as they, in essence, have told the American citizens that they have little or no say in who is chosen to run or how their leaders are elected.

Local News Channel Posts The Results Of The Primary Election Who Should Be Held Next Week.  The primary elections in Michigan are set to occur next week.  But the local News Channel 3 apparently just released the results last night.  RINO Tudor Dixon Trump hater Peter Meijer won according to the leaked results!  In any event, this is a major story and it shows just how corrupt our system has become.
