Voting machine problems in VA

EmeraldVoting machines in two precincts of Virginia recorded more votes than actually existed in the 2022 midterm elections.

According to a new report by an election data analysis non-profit called Electoral Process Education Corporation (EPEC): In at least two precincts in Prince William County (PWC) the number of physical ballots cast and accumulated was different than the machine scanner’s tally of ballots, as reported by election officers. The numbers must align as part of the precinct’s tracking of total ballots cast at the voting location.

Election officers observed differences in ballot counts of voters who were checked in with pollbooks compared to the actual number of ballots in the machines throughout the day. When the election officers went to close out the polling station, they discovered a ballot scanner with 27 more ballots represented in the electronic total than physical ballots present inside the machine’s collection bin. The scanner reported 531 ballots scanned and recorded, but only 504 physical ballots were in the collection bin underneath the scanner.

It's not a big difference, but it's the same type of difference seen in other areas as a result of a QR code misread error.

Texas governor declares invasion

Just The NewsFrustrated by an unending crisis fueled by drug and human trafficking at the southern border, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Tuesday declared his state was under an invasion and invoked special powers granted under the U.S. and Texas constitutions.

Abbott's decision came after three dozen counties in his state passed resolutions calling for the dramatic action. The Republican governor said the declaration allows him to send National Guard troops to the border, treat drug cartels as terrorist organization and to build his own border wall separate of the federal government,

"I invoked the Invasion Clauses of the U.S. & Texas Constitutions to fully authorize Texas to take unprecedented measures to defend our state against an invasion," Abbott tweeted in his announcement. "I'm using that constitutional authority, & other authorization & Executive Orders to keep our state & country safe."

If he was serious, he'd be posting tanks along the northern border of Texas too.

Brazil orders seizure of assets from protesters

Gateway Pundit But the corrupt Supreme Court was not finished.

On Thursday the far-left court ordered banks to seize ALL assets and block funds from the millions of protesters participating in the mass democracy protests.

Isn't it interesting that seizing assets was the go-to move in Canada against the truckers, and now in Brazil on a much larger scale?

"Guaranteed income" for transgenders

InstapunditSan Francisco Launches Program To Pay Trans Residents $1,200 A Month For 18 Months. “The Transgender District and Lyon-Martin Community Health Services, in partnership with municipal city departments in the City and County of San Francisco, will provide 55 Transgender residents of San Francisco County with $1,200 a month in guaranteed income for a year and a half. The program will prioritize enrollment of Transgender, Non-Binary, Gender Non-Conforming, and Intersex (TGI) people who are also Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC), experiencing homelessness, living with disabilities and chronic illnesses, youth and elders, monolingual Spanish-speakers, and those who are legally vulnerable such as TGI people who are undocumented, engaging in survival sex trades, ​or are formerly incarcerated.”

They are just blatantly paying off their client groups.

Harvesting ballots from nursing homes in PA

Area OchoA week ago, I pointed out that it would be easy to harvest ballots from dementia patients who are in a residential nursing facility. A person could use their personal information to obtain mail in ballots before voting for them, and there you go- 200 votes for the candidate of your choice. It turns out that this is exactly what happened in Pennsylvania, and Democrat voting boards voted to allow it.

They used this strategy in Wisconsin too.

No charges for Giuliani after FBI raid

Just The NewsFormer New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will not face criminal charges in connection with an FBI raid on his apartment and the seizure of electronics stored within.

Prosecutors announced the decision in a Monday court filing, per the New York Post, saying "The Government writes to notify the Court that the grand jury investigation that led to the issuance of the above-referenced warrants has concluded, and that based on information currently available to the Government, criminal charges are not forthcoming."

Authorities in the Southern District of New York had been investigating Giuliani's relationship with Ukrainian prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko, the Post reported. Lutsenko reportedly gave the Republican information on former President Donald Trump's political opponents and was a prominent figure in his first impeachment trial.

Of course he won't face charges; the charges only existed to enable the investigation, and the investigation only existed to enable the surveillance.

We need legislation that applies a significant personal penalty to abuses of the police power. Any search warrant that doesn't find the evidence that it was supposed to should result in recompense to the target and penalties to those who requested and signed the warrant.

MA secretly installed contact tracing app on resident's phones

Gateway PunditThe Massachusetts Department of Public Health is facing a class action lawsuit after colluding with Google to repeatedly auto-install contact-tracing spyware on the smartphones of over a million Massachusetts residents without their permission or consent.

According to a class action lawsuit filed by the New Civil Liberties Alliance, a nonpartisan nonprofit civil rights organization, the Department of Public Health rolled out the contact tracing app it worked with Google to create in April 2021.

“The App causes an Android mobile device to constantly connect and exchange information with other nearby devices via Bluetooth and creates a record of such other connections. If a user opts in and reports being infected with COVID-19, an exposure notification is sent to other individuals on the infected user’s connection record,” the NCLA explains in the complaint, Wright v. Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

Initially, the app which obtains users private locations and health information was voluntarily installed.

But then in June, DPH ramped up its contact tracing program and allegedly began surreptitiously installing the surveillance app on residents’ phones.

For anyone in MA and using a google-based phone (Android), your government violated your privacy.

Trying to end the emergency

Gateway PunditOn Tuesday, the U.S. Senate voted to terminate the national health emergency declared in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic

after almost three years of emergency-justified authoritarianism.

By a vote of 62 to 36, with 13 Democrats in favor, the Senate voted to rescind the emergency declaration.

It now goes to the House. It is not known if the House will consider the proposed resolution.

Biden has threatened a veto, which would require 67 votes to override. Maintaining the emergency as long as possible is vital to maintaining power in the White House. That the vote even got to 62 is a serious crack in the armor.

Berlin will have to redo its elections because of fraud

Gateway PunditElections in the German capital of Berlin were so fraudulent they will have to be repeated, the Berlin State Supreme Court ruled today. YouTube had threatened to censor any claims of election irregularities and now looks a lot like Fake News.

“The elections to the Berlin House of Representatives and the district assemblies are declared invalid in the entire electoral area,” the President of the Berlin Constitutional Court, Ludgera Selting (58), ruled today.

The reason are the massive irregularites in the 2021 election. New elections will be held in Spring of 2023.

A bit of an embarassing contrast to how we are ignoring the fraud in ours.

Election machines in Virginia counted more votes than ballots

Just The NewsElection machines reported more votes than physical ballots cast in two precincts in an influential Virginia county, raising concerns about election administration in the midterms after the county's former registrar was charged earlier this year with multiple election-related offenses.

In Prince William County, one of Virginia's most important electoral counties, at least two precincts had more ballots reported on the machine scanners' tallies of ballots than were tabulated by election officers, according to a report by Electoral Process Education Corporation (EPEC), a nonprofit that performs election data analysis.

As a software engineer I know you absolutely must test any software product vigorously and continuously if you want it to work reliably. For voting machines, that means comparing the machine results to hand counts in real elections, then investigating and fixing problems.

Instead we're being told we can't question the machines.

That's bullshit.

DOJ Observers and the elections

Town HallOn 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.

These five jurisdictions supposedly under in-person DOJ supervision throughout Tuesday suffered major muck-ups.

Doesn't surprise me a bit.

Voting machine "glitch" flipped race

Gateway PunditDue to a technical error, the Democrat candidate for Jerome’s House seat in Idaho was initially thought to have won. After it was corrected, the seat in the House was declared for a Republican candidate.

Enough votes to change the projected Idaho election results were missed in a glitch.

After more nearly 700 votes were added to the tally on the state website late Thursday morning, Chief Deputy Secretary of State Chad Houck announced that Republican Jack Nelsen, not Democrat Karma Metzler Fitzgerald, had won the House seat representing Jerome, Blaine, and Lincoln counties.

So will this "glitch" be investigated?

True the Vote alleges China corrupted the election

Gateway PunditOn Thursday, True the Vote investigator and election fraud hero Gregg Phillips shared some interesting information on his Truth Social account that may explain the unexplainable Fetterman victory for in Pennsylvania on Tuesday. In his post on Truth, Phillips focused on Allegheny Co., PA, telling residents, “your leaders sold you and America out to China.”

Phillips explained, “More than that, we have irrefutable evidence that the entire PA voter registration file is living on a server in China—And, machine serial numbers, ballot bundle numbers, and—They didn’t steal it. They gave it to the CCP and PLA.”

He explained, “This is why we were put in prison. They had to silence us.”

A defiant Phillips said, “We will not sit down. We will not shut up.”

True The Vote has been very reliable about what they claim, and the FBI/DOJ reaction smells like a coverup. They certainly seemed to have damning information about Konnech. But then higher-ups made it go away.

Konnech election software case dropped

Gateway Pundit quoting New York TimesLos Angeles County dropped criminal charges against the top executive of an elections technology company on Wednesday, bringing to an abrupt end an unusual case that became the focus of Americans who distrust the country’s electoral system.

The district attorney’s office said in a statement that it had dropped the case against the executive, Eugene Yu, because of concerns about the “pace of the investigation” and the “potential bias in the presentation” of evidence in the case. The office said the county had assembled a new team to “determine whether any criminal activity occurred.”

My take: An FBI field office did the initial investigation and arrest, then DC got involved with the now visible results.

Biden promises assault weapon ban following midterms

Just The News"There's some things I want to change and add to," he said, referring to what he said was the "rational gun policy" he signed earlier this year.

"But we didn't ban assault weapons," he said. "I'm going to ban assault weapons. We're going to try like the devil."

A ban on "assault weapons" has been a regular goal of Democratic politicians for years, though the measures have often centered around the outlawing of cosmetic feature on common semi-automatic weapons.

I almost want him to pass this so the Supreme Court can strike it down. Almost.

Realistically, the Senate has already caved on gun control once, and control of the House looks to be very narrow at best. We probably can't stop it if Biden really means to push the issue and the Senate goes along. (The Dems can usually find a few squishes in the House if our leadership lets it come to a vote there). But we should try.

So what did the FBI raid Trump for?

Don SurberNow that the election is over, WaPo admitted the raid on President Trump was nonsenses.

The FBI confiscated 11,000 documents. A review showed 99% of the documents were not classified and the ones marked classified were harmless.

The story said, "That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said."

Trump had nothing but souvenirs and newspaper clippings.

The FBI had no business doing this.

By their silence, Republicans in Washington are accomplices.

The only thing the FBI got in the Trump raid was cheap political theater.

Under-21 gun buyers may face NICS delays

American Military New The FBI posted a notice on its National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), notifying gun dealers to expect delays in background checks for purchasers under the age of 21, starting on Nov. 14.

Bearing Arms first reported on the upcoming NICS processing delays, after a federal firearms license (FFL) dealer contact shared with the publication a letter sent by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). The ATF letter let the FFL dealer know that it has been revising it’s process for gun purchasers between the age of 18 and 20 since the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA) of 2022 passed in June.

No comment, other than Republicans compromised and this is the result.

House Republicans release report on FBI political abuse

Just The NewsHouse Judiciary Republicans on Friday released a 1,000-plus page report on FBI whistleblower disclosures on "the politicization of the FBI And Justice Department."

The members called the report "the first comprehensive accounting of the FBI's problems to date, which undermine the FBI's fundamental law-enforcement mission."

They also say in an announcement about the report that the 1,050 document "primarily concerns FBI abuses, due to the experiences and roles of whistleblowers, but also examines the actions of the Justice Department where appropriate for context and explanation."

If they intended this to have some impact on the midterms, they waited too long.

New York's new gun control laws suspended by judge

ReutersA federal judge in New York temporarily suspended many parts of the state's new gun restrictions on Monday to allow members of a gun-owners' rights group to continue their lawsuit challenging the new law as unconstitutional.

Judge Glenn Suddaby of the U.S. District Court in Syracuse agreed to issue the order at the request of six New York residents who are members of Gun Owners of America, which competes with the National Rifle Association in political influence.

On the gun rights front, things sre looking very very good. We're making lots of good precedent.

World War 3?

Fox NewsRussian missiles flew over NATO territory and killed two people in Poland Tuesday, a senior U.S. intelligence official told The Associated Press.

The Polish government has not immediately confirmed the report, but one spokesman Piotr Mueller told the publication that top leaders were holding an emergency meeting over the "crisis situation."

Poland is a NATO member. A single stray missile and two deaths would be paper thin, but I get the feeling the Biden Admin is just looking for an excuse to escalate. The missiles might be Ukrainian anti-air missiles.

For the record, I am not in favor of world war 3. Let's hope sanity prevails.

Meta (aka Facebook) to announce layoffs after the election

Conservative TreehouseThe Wall Street Journal is reporting that Facebook’s parent company, Meta, is planning to lay off people after the midterm election next week. Meta has lost 70% of its stock value after announcing poor user engagement and financial support last week while investors fled to the exits.

In the big picture, those companies who were ideologically aligned with the Biden administration’s larger political efforts will all likely start announcing layoffs soon. There’s a better than reasonable likelihood some companies have deferred layoff announcements in an effort to help the employment stats for the Biden Administration.

Delaying the bad economic news until after the election.
