FBI raids Giuliani, Toensing

Conservative TreehouseAccording to media reports federal authorities raided the New York apartment of Rudy Giuliani today. Apparently electronic devices were seized as part of their investigation into him. However, the DOJ motive behind the investigation is something everyone should be familiar with, Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA).

FARA violations being used as a backdoor justification for political targeting has long been the approach of a weaponized DOJ. They are using that same tactic again in their effort to target Rudy Giuliani.

This is nakedly political.

It's unclear what exactly they were looking for, but the election audit in Arizona is also getting a lot of attempted legal interference, and Trump gave interviews on that topic the day before the raid where he said he was being kept up to date on the results. Likely, the FBI were really looking for information about the results of that audit (which is ongoing). It's not the first time they have targeted Giuliani. And of course before that they targeted another Trump lawyer, Michael Cohen, who eventually broke -- but had nothing on Trump.

They raided Victoria Toensing at about the same time. The warrant mentioned John Solomon. It's purportedly about Ukraine. But once they have seized all electronic devices, they can search those devices for whatever they want to know. Legally? Of course not; legally they are only supposed to look for evidence of crimes listed on the warrant. But in practice? Everything.

The election gun is smoking

I wrote earlier that election auditors demonstrated the ability to swap vote totals on election machines in Antrim County, where such a swap was in fact observed. I also wrote that they had not reported evidence that such a swap had actually been performed, just that it could be performed. It now appears we have taken the next step.

UncoverDCNotably, unauthorized software called SQL Management Studio \version 17.1 was installed on the Antrim County Election Management System (EMS)—as reported by Doug Logan of Cyber Ninjas in a report on April 9, 2021. “This software is not certified b5, the Election Assistance Commission for use on electronic voting systems,” as reported in Lenberg’s expert summary.

Lenberg also wrote that “vote modification can be pre-planned and deployed prior to an election. ElectionSource staff possesses all of the administrative access” to modify the vote tally files. He also explained that he was able to “replicate the election inaccuracies observed in the November 3, 2020 election” when he ran his tests on the equipment.

ElectionSource had access to other counties across Michigan...
The counties “appeared in the Userlnfo log file on the EMS” and were “opened projects” during the “same timeframe as the files that ElectionSource technicians were working to configure and deploy project files for Antrim County.”

There's some substantial new information here. The initial report demonstrated that the election database could be hacked using an SQL tool, with admin access. Lenberg is alleging that the election management system in Antrim
County had that tool installed on it, which is not allowed, and that the log files show that ElectionSource had the necessary admin access and were logged as accessing the election files for many other counties during the same time as they were working in Antrim.

He also indicates that the Antrim County Clerk authorized staff to remove files and data from the voting machines the day after the election.

The classic trifecta of means, motive, and opportunity. Plus, if you weren't convinced already, the damning cover up of the crime.

Democrats try to involve DOJ in blocking Arizona election audit

Conservative TreehouseAfter the Democrat Secretary of State failed to get the Arizona State Attorney General to initiate an investigation of the audit; and after a Democrat state judge rejected the Democrat effort for a temporary restraining order; and after all other efforts have failed…. now we see three outside left-wing election groups (claiming bipartisanship yet led by lawyers from NYU) asking the DOJ to intervene in the Maricopa County, Arizona, ballot audit.

The audit started on April 23. A judge on April 28 rejected the attempt by Democrats to halt the process.

The Brennan Center, Protect Democracy and The Leadership Conference have signed a letter to the civil rights division of the DOJ asking them to get involved.

The Dems are clearly freaking out about this audit, but still trying to do it quietly without a lot of publicity.

How the voting machines can be hacked

Gateway PunditMatthew DePerno: We have the proof that voting machines used in the 2020 elections can be compromised and votes easily transferred from one candidate to another. We can flip votes at the tabulator/precinct level. We can flip votes at the county level. The American people are losing their voice for the future of our democracy. We must fight together for free and fair elections.

2. Michigan elections happening today. Do you think putting your intent on a ballot matters? Machines convert data and data can be manipulated...

Matthew DePerno says he will be able to show the tabulator tapes at the precinct lever were different than the paper ballots.

Matt Deperno shows, on video, how the election machines can be hacked to show different results and alter the reported outcome without matching the input ballots.

There are two catches here. One, the hack demonstrated is some simple SQL commands, which would generally require access to the database. He hasn't demonstrated how he obtained that access -- but lots of people in an election administration staff could have such access. Two, he doesn't demonstrate that the actual election was modified this way, just that it could be done with admin access to the database.

That said, it may be impossible to demonstrate the second part, if the machines are hackable and fail to keep appropriate logs.

Millions of election dollars flowed to AR,GA in addition to other states

Gateway PunditWhere did the millions go? Maricopa County Arizona, one of the largest counties in the nation, received $3 million in ‘Zuckerbucks’ from a Democrat non-profit before the election. No one knows who accepted it or where it went.

Gateway PunditGeorgia’s Raffensperger did it too – received millions in ‘Zuckerbucks’ and the best information is that he spent it on public service announcements promoting his election actions. A group directly linked to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg donated nearly $5.6 million to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office last year…

…The Georgia Star News contacted Raffensperger’s communications staff Monday for comment. Raffensperger Spokesman Walter Jones, in his emailed response, took a dig at this publication.

“Any grant or funding source, as allowed by Georgia law, has enabled this and local elections offices to combat disinformation similar to recent articles published by this outlet that undermine the confidence of Georgia voters,” Jones said referring to the events of last year.

Jones did not specifically describe how Raffensperger spent the money — but the CEIR website did.

“Georgia used CEIR grant funds in both the November general election and January runoff election to encourage voters to apply for a ballot online,” the CEIR website said.

“This approach sped up the process for both voters and election officials while also making it easier to track application status. Georgia also used the funds to counteract disinformation, issuing public service announcements warning voters of disinformation and encouraging them to report fraud to the Secretary of State hotline.”

Well, that explains both of those locations. With hundreds of millions flowing in, do you really think none of it stuck to the right pockets?

Supreme Court declines PA absentee ballot case

YahooThe Supreme Court won't take an appeal by Pennsylvania Republicans claiming that the state's secretary of state exceeded its authority when expanding deadlines for mail-in ballots last year due to the pandemic, according to NBC News.

This was a clear violation of the law by the PA SecState. The SC had, prior to the election, issued injunctions which strongly suggested they would take the case and likely reverse the SecState's action. But somewhere between then and now, they lost their nerve.

Decisions like this strongly suggest that Democratic threats to pack the courts have worked like a charm.

Maricopa County AZ election audit poised to begin

Just The NewsThe Arizona Senate is poised to begin a major audit of over two million ballots cast in the 2020 election in the state's largest county, a process the state Senate president claims has been stymied by county officials and which the county claims rests on legally uncertain ground.

Senate subpoenas to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for information and equipment needed to perform the audit have been pending since Dec. 15, 2020 and were upheld by a judge on Feb. 25. In mid-March, the state Senate announced that Republicans in that chamber would be conducting a "broad and detailed" review of Maricopa's ballots, one that would involve "testing the machines, scanning the ballots, performing a full hand count and checking for any IT breaches," among other approaches.

The ballots and machines are being moved now.

Is the Arizona election audit pointless?

Daily Pundit (SteveF)You’ve no doubt seen news of the ballot recount in Arizona. Republicans (not Nevertrump RINOs) pushed for the audit, raised money, and jumped through all the hoops needed to get the order. Democrats, the establishment, and Nevertrumpers (some category overlap) objected and made noises about records being destroyed before the audit but they didn’t put their money where their mouths were.

Does anyone over the age of six think that Biden will be thrown out and Trump reinstalled as the legitimate President? Does anyone think the Supreme Court will take up the challenges? Does anyone think that anyone above the level of flunky will be hauled before a judge, let alone see the inside of a jail cell?

I don't disagree with the above. Election audits, at this point, will not result in Biden being removed from office. There's a process, flawed and time-limited as it was, and that process put Biden in office. That doesn't, however, mean the election audits are pointless.

Conducting the audits -- if done properly, and if the results do expose massive fraud as many suspect -- will go a long ways towards securing future elections. It will create significant public momentum towards updating election laws and performing audits in other questionable states. It will expose not only that fraud happened, but HOW the fraud happened, informing us of what exactly needs to be secured. And it will do so with the kind of evidence needed to get cowardly legislators to act. If they do not, it will provide powerful arguments in future elections for replacing them with others who will.

At this point, removing Biden from office over election fraud would take impeachment, and that's not going to happen. But removing Democrats from power will require either honest elections or extreme measures. Audits are the pathway to doing so with honest elections.

Biden pays off Cindy McCain

During the 2020 presidential election, McCain's support for Biden helped him win in Red state Arizona, which her husband represented in Congress.

Both McCains hated Trump and were big players in Republican politics in Arizona. Why would Biden appoint a Republican ambassador unless Cindy McCain did him a big favor? I suspect that "big favor" was arranging for Arizona to go Biden's way. Cindy gets a no-show sinecure as her payoff.

Written instructions for Detroit election handling found

Just The NewsNewly obtained printed absentee ballot instructions for election workers in Detroit confirm that oral instructions described by a city election worker in a post-election sworn affidavit would have been egregious violations of city election rules.

The instructions, obtained by Just the News through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, were crystal clear concerning signature matching and ballot dating: Verification of signatures on absentee ballots was mandatory, and ballots were to be stamped with the date on which they are received.

Detroit election worker Jessy Jacob, a longtime city employee, testified in November that she was instructed by supervisors to ignore signatures on absentee ballots and to fraudulently backdate late-arriving absentee ballots to make them appear to be valid.

To be clear: The written instructions match what the law requires, and multiple individuals have testified under penalty of perjury that they were given different, illegal, verbal instructions during the election.

Maricopa County election audit spawns lawsuit

Gateway PunditThe circus never ends in Arizona as now law firms are threatening suits against the auditors selected by the Arizona Senate to audit the questionable results in Maricopa County from the 2020 Election.

There really must be some bad stuff lingering in the results of the 2020 Election in Maricopa County because the Democrats and the county’s Board of Supervisors are doing everything they can to prevent an adequate audit of the results in the county.

And it looks like the law firm handling the case is Perkins Coie, the same one that was involved in SpyGate and many other Democratic dirty tricks and cover ups.

If Perkins Coie is involved in trying to block this audit, that's practically an admission that foul play was involved with links back to high powered Democrats. Given that the county and state are predominantly Republican, there is likely bipartisan corruption too.

GA SecState doesn't want paper ballots audited

Gateway PunditGeorgia’s corrupt Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger sent a request to the courts yesterday requesting that ballot images taken from the voting machines in Georgia be the only source of evidence to be used in an upcoming audit in Fulton County Georgia. Raffensperger doesn’t want the paper ballots reviewed.

The motion cited claims that Georgia law doesn't allow for public release of actual paper ballots, only ballot images. He may be right on that point, if you consider an audit to be a public release. But auditing only images makes it difficult to note actual problems with actual physical ballots that may not show up on scanned images -- like a lack of fold marks.

This is one of those things that could be completely above board, but Raffensperger has already violated whatever trust he was due via his earlier efforts at obstruction.

I'm betting if we get to look at the paper ballots, we find something interesting. Remember, we already have several sworn affidavits indicating at least some batches of those ballots appeared suspicious.

Arizona legislature hires election auditors

Just The NewsArizona state Senate Republicans have hired a team of independent auditors to recount the 2020 election, including a hand recount of all ballots in Maricopa County.

The lawmakers announced their decision Wednesday.

The Senate hired truly independent auditors, prompting Maricopa County to hold an emergency meeting and refuse to allow the audit in situ. Sundance figures this is an action to create plausible deniability when the audit results are made public and, obviously, find fraud.

The only questions in my mind at this point is exactly how the fraud was conducted, and will the results enable audits of other questionable results elsewhere?

More election reform in GA

UncoverOn Friday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed SB 202, the ‘Election Integrity Act of 2021.’ The bill is intended to ensure election integrity in Georgia’s elections by placing restrictions on voting by mail and greater legislative control over how elections are governed. But the measure failed to address a pivotal component of the state’s election disaster last November, specifically electronic voting equipment.

Rep. Barry Fleming, R-Harlem, who sponsored SB 202, currently has a separate omnibus election bill awaiting consideration on the Senate floor.

I thought the election reform bill in GA was a little weak, but many of the things it was missing are covered in this legislation. Most importantly, it adds a lot of ballot security, and blocks the SecState from entering into any consent decrees without the agreement of the legislature.

About that voter fraud that doesn't exist...

Real Clear InvestigationsThe story at hand begins during the pandemic summer of 2020, when the then-governor, Democrat Steve Bullock, issued a directive permitting counties to conduct the general election fully by mail. In the run-up to the election, a court also struck down Montana’s law aimed at preventing ballot harvesting.

Missoula, Montana’s second most populous county and one of its most heavily Democratic, opted in to the universal vote-by-mail regime.

Election fraud has always been around, usually used by Democrats against Republicans, but as most of both are part of the same uniparty, the fraud is usually low key and only secures a small advantage for Democrats. But against Trump they pulled out all the stops, and that leaves tracks that suddenly people are interested in following.

GA passes election reform laws

Behind the BlackIn what might be the first sign that at least one Republican-controlled state legislature has recognized that their state’s voting system is corrupt and prone to tampering, Georgia’s government has passed and signed into law a range of changes designed to make election fraud more difficult.

Most of the changes appear to me to be either minor window-dressing or watered-down reforms that will help but not alleviate the problem. One change however is major, significant, and will likely guarantee that control of the voting system will now be under the supervision of the state’s elected officials, not the appointed bureaucrats in the election board.

I agree with him that most of the changes are weaksauce. I'm hopeful about the election board changes, mostly because they should render Raffensperger irrelevant.

The Supreme Court also threw out Attorney Lin Wood’s election challenge without comment.

Gateway Pundit's take is a little pessimistic, but only a little. The court refusing without comment (denial of certiori) doesn't set legal precedent, so in theory the same issues could come up again and be taken up by the court at a later date.

In practice, the Roberts court blinked and until the court slate changes for the better, we're not likely to see any improvement.

FBI accused of destroying evidence of voter fraud

Gateway PunditThis all started when a shredding company was hired to come in and shred election material. When the truck arrived at the scene, the material asked to be shredded turned out to be ballots and other official records from the 2020 election. The company began shredding the material into little balls which are basically impossible to piece back together once they are shredded in that manner.

After the shredder operator obtained the material to shred he noticed something unusual and eventually connected with members of the Trump team who were in Georgia at that time. He explained the situation and brought the material to this Trump-related group. This group of individuals who were connected to the investigation to uncover the 2020 election fraud immediately began sifting through what was not yet fully destroyed. They reportedly found shipment transit receipts linked to China, ballots, and other sensitive information related to the 2020 election.

A local DHS investigator was also invited to review the material. When the China information was found, the information was immediately shared with the Trump White House and the DHS in Washington DC. One of our sources believes it was the DHS in Washington that then notified the FBI about the situation.Within a short period of time, the local DHS investigator was pulled off the case by a very senior individual with the DHS. Soon thereafter, the FBI showed up and ordered the investigation to be shut down.

The FBI insisted they had jurisdiction over the review of these ballots in Georgia. They took control of the shredding truck and materials and demanded the shredding operation be completed.

If true, the FBI engineered a cover up of election fraud. Not just ignored it or failed to investigate; they actually destroyed evidence.

I can think of absolutely no excuse for shredding this material. Either the ballots were legitimate or not. Either way, they are evidence. If they are real, federal law requires election records to be kept for years. If they are fake, they are evidence of large-scale election fraud that helped swing a Presidential election.

As predicted...

American GreatnessWhile Republican lawmakers in the state of Georgia have introduced numerous bills aimed at targeting voter fraud and improving election integrity, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R-Ga.) has not yet chosen to support any of them, as reported by The Hill.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Raffensperger announced that “once we see something that prioritizes the security and accessibility of elections, we’ll throw in support.” He falsely accused some of the bills of being “reactionary to a three month disinformation campaign that could have been prevented,” without explaining what exactly constituted such “disinformation.”

The GA SecState Raffensperger is opposed to holding fair and honest elections, so he will need to be removed from office before any election reform in GA can be trusted.

GA Senate advances election security legislation

Just The NewsThe Georgia Senate has approved four election bills including one that will require ID verification for absentee ballot applicants.

One of the bills, SB 67, adds an ID requirement to paper requests for absentee ballots and would require either a driver's license number, state ID number, or photocopy of a photo ID that would be needed for in-person voting, according to news reports.

"It's not about disenfranchising voters," said Sen. Larry Walker, who sponsored the bills passed Tuesday. "It's not about overly burdening the electorate. It's about efficiency, integrity, allowing the Georgia public to have confidence in the vote."

The legislation seems like a good idea, but it will be meaningless if the executive branch can change the rules on a whim as happened in 2020.

Adjudication issues in Maricopa County, too

Gateway PunditMaricopa County in Arizona recently released reports by two vendors who conducted election audits in early February. Witnesses working at the (MCTEC) Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center testified that 12% of all ballots were being sent to adjudication. Numerous supervisors offered this data when struggling to assign this large amount of ballot files to adjudicators.

So one in eight ballots were being sent as a digital image to humans at computers. These adjudicators would review and could change the circles voters selected on these ballots. Changing a ballot is as easy as checking a box on a PDF form. But neither audit discloses this unusually high rate of adjudication or why it happened.

The unusually high adjudication rates appear to be a common factor in regions that had unusual results. Each adjudicated ballot has to be decided by a human, but the process is electronic and subject to interference from hackers. When proper audits have been performed, evidence of intrusions was detected. None of this depends on conspiracy theories about CIA or Dominion involvement, just evidence in the public record.

Supreme Court denies PA election lawsuits as "moot"

Conservative TreehouseIn a 6-3 ruling today the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to grant writ to hear the Pennsylvania election challenge cases. While the majority of media will likely celebrate this decision; and while the court has refused to hear the case(s) based on their position the issues are “moot”; there appears to be an underlying motive not being discussed...

It seems like the court will make whatever excuses necessary to avoid ruling on election cases ... against the Democrats. Kavanaugh and Barrett have been a huge disappointment here. Roberts is a known quantity now. Only Alito, Gorsuch, and Thomas showed the backbone necessary to make an honest ruling. It is almost exactly the same dance the court has used for years to avoid enforcing the 2nd Amendment in another more than the most perfunctory manner. As Ace points out...

Ace of SpadesBy the way, they keep saying that this wouldn't effect the results of the election because they have repeatedly sifted the number of challenges down to the point where we're talking about just a couple of thousand ballots.

They've figured out other ways to ignore the challenges to all the other ballots.

It's like breaking down a cargo into a hundred pieces and saying of each tiny piece, "No, this won't meaningfully affect the ship's seaworthiness. No this one also won't meaningfully affect the ship's seaworthiness. No this one also won't appreciably affect the ship's seaworthiness..."

Yeah but take them all together and the ship sinks.

Michigan removes almost 200k voters from voter rolls... after the election

Gateway PunditMichigan now admits after ‘certifying’ the 2020 Presidential election, that more voters should be removed from their voter rolls than there were votes won by Joe Biden in the race. Mixed with other suspected fraud, (like 141,000 ballot drops at 6am the day after the election) all the ballots in this state should be forensically audited to determine the full extent of the election fraud.

HR1 enshrines voter fraud across the land

J Christian AdamsH.R.1 packs into one 791-page bill every bad idea about how to run elections and mandates that the states must adopt -- the very things that made the election of 2020 such a mess. It includes all of the greatest hits of 2020: Mandatory mail ballots, ballots without postmarks, late ballots and voting in precincts where you don't live. It includes so many bad ideas that no publication has satisfactory space to cover all of them. The Senate companion bill, S.1, might be even worse.

The whole point of this legislation is to create a permanent Dem majority by means of permanent fraud. All the tactics they used to fraud Biden into the White House will be permanent fixtures across all national elections. If this passes, there's probably no voting our way out. No one sane should want that.

Dems want to change election rules nationwide

The FederalistDemocrats introduced the new 800-page “For The People Act of 2021” in early January with the hopes that their control in the House of Representatives and possibly the Senate would allow for swift passage of the bill. Some of the measures in the bill, however, include eliminating the opportunity for states to protect themselves against the modifications weaponized in the 2020 election, such as preventing restrictions on vote-by-mail and imposing voter ID laws. Those measures also give the federal government control over political speech online by expanding the definition of electioneering communications and expose political and nonprofit donors’ information to the public in connection to the causes they support.

The first thing the Democrats want to do after they "win" is put rules in place to permanently ensure they will always "win".

Hand recount shows 300 votes missing from Republican totals in NH

Gateway PunditMore proof of election fraud by Dominion Voting Machines.

A recent hand recount in the Rockingham District 7 NH House Race in Windham, New Hampshire, found that the Dominion voting machines shorted EVERY REPUBLICAN by roughly 300 votes.

The most logical explanation for this is that roughly 300 ballots had some sort of issue with the ballot as a whole rather than with a particular vote (and also less than ten ballots with individual vote issues). Did these ballots go to the adjudication process for manual evaluation? Who did that evaluation?

The Dem totals were also off, but by an order of magnitude less.

300 votes is about 6% of that race. It looks like one race among four almost flipped from R to D based on the missing ballots.

Note: The original source for this claim is Facebook, as far as I can tell. However, the ballot totals after the recount do check out.

Supreme Court considering election cases

Washington ExaminerThe Supreme Court on Friday listed several high-profile election lawsuits for consideration at its mid-February conference.

The cases include challenges to the 2020 election from Trump-aligned lawyers Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, as well as Republican Rep. Mike Kelly's Pennsylvania lawsuit. Nearly every lawsuit takes issue with the expanded use of mail-in ballots by many states.

The decision came after the court declined to fast-track all election-related litigation in early January.

I fear the outcome in these cases is now preordained. Had these cases been decided before the election, their decisions could be made honestly. Now? If the court rules that Biden's wins in several of the states was actually illegitimate... how do you uninstall a president who is occupying the White House?

You don't, absent impeachment, which will not happen due to Democratic control of both houses of Congress (or the 25th Amendment, which doesn't apply here). But if the Supreme Court rules honestly that the rules were illegally changed and the election was invalid, it will tear apart the country and likely spark civil war.

The only justice I trust to have that level of fuck-you is Clarence Thomas. The others are unknown quantities or known squishes.

The court has destroyed its own credibility.

Byrne gives his account of the post-election crisis

Deep CaptureOn New Year’s Day I was in the laboratory of the federally certified forensic document examiner, and one of his colleagues who had driven up from a long way away just to be there. They were quiet, professional, and I left them to their work. After an hour they reported: two of the ballots were printed in one print shop, the other was printed in a different print shop using different paper, different ink, and a different printing method. It being highly unlikely that a county had ordered its ballots from two different print shops, this was indicative that at least one of the ballots was a counterfeit.

Our Man in Georgia had the warehouse in Atlanta under observation. Bums with telephoto lenses were filming. With permission, I put out on Twitter a brief description of what we had found. Hours later, rented Enterprise moving vans pulled up to the warehouse, and pallets of ballots were moved into it.

The next day, a shredding company in a neighboring county got a phone call to pick up an assignment to shred. The truck pulled up, and loaded approximately 3,000 pounds of ballots. It has been confirmed to me that the order was paid for by someone with a credit card from “Dominion Voting”. The shredding truck pulled away. Through a mechanism I will not explain, that shredding truck was intercepted, its work stopped, and ultimately 10,000 pounds of shredded material was dumped out on the floor of a local police station, so there would be a chain-of-evidence. Roughly 3,000 pounds of the shredded material was the ballots (the other 7,000 was from prior customers). The shredding that had been order by the Dominion Voting employee had not been normal shredding (turning things into long strips); it had not been the special shredding (turning the material into confetti); it had been the super-duper military-grade shredding, where the ballots had been shredded then crushed down to spitballs.

An Atlanta DHS agent arrived and took command. A discovery was made: some of the shredded ballots had not been completely shredded. In fact, a few had stuck to the walls of the bin, and were whole. Also found, I was told, were receipts and shipping labels from the outside of the boxes that held the ballots: these receipts and shipping labels were from a Chinese print shop in the south of China. The DHS agent acquired all of these (and he is one with an expertise in matters Chinese, I am told)...

T + 36 hours: The FBI achieved control of the operation. They called the shredding company to come back, and instructed them to pick up the 10,000 pounds of material, complete the shredding, and then continue with their normal procedure: the shredded material would be mixed with water and acid, melted, then reconstituted as recycled paper.

I don't think Byrne's solution, as described here in brief, was really workable. The division of power between federal and state is intended to prevent any one branch of government, and especially the President, from seizing control by force. That would have been doomed to failure had it been tried. But Byrne's account of the people around Trump and the dynamic is valuable, really eye-opening, and depressing to read.

I don't know what the answer to the current entrenched uniparty system is. There may not be an answer, if the electoral systems themselves have been corrupted to the extent alleged.

The lesson to draw from this is that you can't beat a rigged game -- but as we saw in 2016, sometimes you can surprise them.

The New War on Domestic Terror

GreenwaldThe first War on Terror ended up being wielded primarily on foreign soil but it has increasingly been imported onto domestic soil against Americans. This New War on Terror — one that is domestic in name from the start and carries the explicit purpose of fighting “extremists” and “domestic terrorists” among American citizens on U.S. soil — presents the whole slew of historically familiar dangers when governments, exploiting media-generated fear and dangers, arm themselves with the power to control information, debate, opinion, activism and protests.
That a new War on Terror is coming is not a question of speculation and it is not in doubt. Those who now wield power are saying it explicitly. The only thing that is in doubt is how much opposition they will encounter from those who value basic civic rights more than the fears of one another being deliberately cultivated within us.

Remember, if you are on the left (Antifa/BLM) you can seize territory by force, declare yourself a sovereign state, or burn down other people's buildings and the Democrat DAs won't prosecute you. But if you happen to point out that Biden's election has lots of signs that point to cheating, you'll get banned from polite society, fired from your job, and censored. If you happen to run your own business, they'll kick you off every basic financial and infrastructure platform you use and tell you to build your own. God forbid you actually go to a peaceful protest about it; they'll arrest you and throw you in jail for that.

Government "can neither confirm nor deny" they fabricated Russian fingerprints

LawFlogThe Central Intelligence Agency will neither confirm nor deny that it fabricated the Russian “fingerprints” in Democratic National Committee emails published in 2016 by “Guccifer 2.0,” and the FBI implicitly acknowledged today that it never reviewed the contents of DNC employee Seth Rich’s laptop despite gaining custody of the laptop after his murder.

The revelations came in two separate Freedom of Information Act lawsuits filed by my clients in the Eastern District of Texas. For those of you who live under a rock, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange strongly implied in a 2016 interview that the leaked DNC emails came from Mr. Rich, while the political / bureaucratic / media establishment has steadfastly maintained that the emails were hacked by agents of Russia.

The latest admissions blow a hole in the government / media narrative, suggesting that federal officials not only ignored Seth Rich’s role in the leaks, but fraudulently shifted the blame to Russia.

As far as I am concerned, this proves the counter-narrative: Seth Rich leaked the DNC emails to Wikileaks and was killed for it, after which the US government (FBI, CIA and possibly other agencies) covered it up. The details are foggy, but the coverup is proven.

Byrne on possible solutions

Patrick ByrneOver the lat couple of decades, as townships, counties, and states have been pitched on the virtues of electronic voting systems over the tools of Stone Age democracy (where voting was done on paper ballots with simple mechanical machines). The pitches all came with one promise: “There will always be a paper ballot fail-safe, so in the event of a broken election you can always just open the boxes and count the ballots!” I would respectfully suggest that whatever foresight caused election officials in years past to extract that commitment, whatever threshold of election uncertainty they envisioned might someday occur requiring that a measure be taken to give the public confidence in an election result…whatever that point is, has surely been breached.

Because of that fact, since November 15 I have imagined a way to resolve this quickly, with little-to-no insult to the Constitution...

Read the whole thing. It's not a perfect solution, but there are no perfect solutions, and he reports a lot of direct information from meeting with the President and what went down after that.

Byrne is (probably) one of the major funders behind Powell and Wood. He's got an inside position here, and while he seems a little crazy, that inside position combined with his connections to Flynn and Powell make it impossible to dismiss his claims. What he describes in this article are White House staffers, supposedly answerable to the President, blocking the President's decisions and refusing to act on them.

Of course that's been pretty much the story of Trump's time in office, beginning to end.

I neither endorse nor reject Byrne's proposals for a physical recount of paper ballots. I don't think calls to redo the election if major discrepancies are found are even possible at this point. I do think a full physical audit of all ballots in those states with major signs of fraud is a requirement for anyone to trust our elections again -- and I think the refusal of the establishment, on both sides, to allow anything like that demonstrates their knowledge of and agreement to the fraud. But to be accurate, such an audit would need to include the voter rolls and the status of all voters, and I don't think there's any realistic way we can get that in any reasonable amount of time. Next election, maybe, if the state legislatures in those states really take charge. Not this time.

FBI seizes evidence of election fraud in Georgia

Patrick ByrneUpdate on Georgia ballots: DHS had been trying to move forward this week. Two days ago FBI jumped in claiming jurisdiction. Yesterday 3 PM FBI took control of shredding truck and materials, directed they be returned to shredding operation and the shredding job completed.

If true, this can only be a cover up operation. Even if the documents were just taken into FBI custody rather than returned to the shredder, given the complete lack of interest FBI has displayed in election fraud so far I do not believe there is suddenly any active investigation. The FBI is just making sure it covers things up for Biden.

I didn't post much of Byrne's extra-ballots-in-Georgia saga because it was suspicious but not clearly criminal. Maybe the ballots were marked differently for some reason, but that was unproven. Printing extra ballots for emergencies is understandable. Printing LOTS of extra ballots is suspicious, but not clearly fraudulent. Shredding the ballots right after the election is suspicious, but could have been from an earlier election. I wanted to wait until we had an actual forensic analysis of the ballots in bulk.

Now it looks like we won't get that because the FBI shredded the evidence.

Intel community report on election interference

Conservative TreehouseToday, literally hours after congress votes to certify the election results, that very same DNI report is now delivered to congress.

Buried inside an article noting that politically motivated intelligence officers intentionally withheld information about China’s active involvement in the 2020 election, we find this sentence: “The intelligence community’s classified assessment on foreign influence in the 2020 election … was also submitted to Congress on Thursday.”

They submitted the report within hours of the electoral college vote being counted, meaning that it was being deliberately withheld prior to that for political purposes. Yet another act of treason by the intelligence agencies against the president.

Washington ExaminerPoliticization problems exist in U.S. spy agency assessments on foreign influence in the 2020 U.S. election, including analysts who appeared to hold back information on Chinese meddling efforts because they disagreed with the Trump administration's policies, according to an intelligence community inspector.

“Given analytic differences in the way Russia and China analysts examined their targets, China analysts appeared hesitant to assess Chinese actions as undue influence or interference. The analysts appeared reluctant to have their analysis on China brought forward because they tend to disagree with the administration’s policies, saying in effect, I don’t want our intelligence used to support those policies,” Zulauf concluded, saying this behavior violated analytic standards requiring independence from political considerations.

It sounds like they left out a lot from what they did submit, too.

Gateway PunditIn Wayne County, the election night counting of absentees was happening at the TCF Center, formerly known as Cobo Hall. This is the site where Detroit City Officials put cardboard over the windows to prevent the GOP from seeing in, where poll workers were militantly hostile to the GOP, and where hundreds of affidavits claim they witnessed voter fraud.

And until now, no one has bothered to review the video footage.

Probably these requests will be delayed as long as possible, just to run out the clock.

Study by John Lott suggests almost 300k excess votes

Washington ExaminerAn analysis of the 2020 presidential vote suggests that there were 289,000 “excess” votes for Joe Biden in states his victory over President Trump was small, and that differences in votes by neighbors were “suspicious.”

The study by economist John R. Lott Jr., noted for his statistical analysis of guns in America, called into question the victories declared for Biden in Pennsylvania and Georgia and cast a cloud over those in Nevada, Arizona, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

Lott is undeniably a statistical expert with serious credentials and experience. That said, I'm not sure I follow his reasoning here, beyond claiming that there are noticeable differences in voting patterns where there shouldn't be.

How the ballot adjudication process leads to fraud

American ThinkerThere was a point in that video where we showed, it was Richard Barron, who had said that 113,000 votes were cast, a 105,000 were adjudicated. Right? Now, that’s not physically possible, you know, which we can prove mathematically but, at the same time, if you adjudicate 105,000 votes, you have to understand from a technological perspective, as we’ve delved into all the different aspects of how the vote moves along, when you adjudicate a ballot, that old reference, the image that you saw or anything like that, is completely destroyed. It’s gone. You can no longer reference that thing. And when you go run a hand recount like you did in Georgia, then you’re looking at a printout of those ballot scans. So, at no point did the original voter intent enter into that process once it’s been destroyed.

And that’s how the hand recount jived with the election information: Original ballots were counted outside of the sight of observers and then destroyed, while “adjudicated” ballots were printed up with the information the adjudicators’ chose, and no hint at all as to the voter’s actual intent.

The fact that Republican ballots were misprinted may explain how so many got tagged for “adjudication”: The printing error triggered a machine misreading that required adjudication.

No wonder that, after all the evidence was in, the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee unanimously passed a motion to embrace Jovan Pulitzer’s proposal to audit Fulton County ballots to determine whether they had actually been mailed-in or had been run off a pro-Biden photocopy machine.

Shortly after the vote to allow the audit, bulk shredders showed up at the counting facility to begin shredding the ballots. That's not suspicious at all.

The good thing about this is that it manages to explain from head to tail how the fraud works -- not very clearly from the testimony but all the pieces are there for the first time.

Basically, the machines are set up to send large numbers of ballots into the adjudication process. We've seen examples of about 68% (Antrim County in Michigan, one county in Nevada) and one in GA where 93% were adjudicated (above). Maybe this is done via differences in ballot printing by region, or the use of Sharpie pens that produce bleed-through. The point is, the machines scan large numbers of ballots that they cannot read automatically. These ballots must be adjudicated by humans.

Those ballot images, after being adjudicated, are deleted and replaced with newly generated ballot images from the adjudication process. Possibly the adjudicated ballots are also printed, so paper copies would exist -- in the case of absentee ballots, paper copies that had never been folded for mailing or handled by human hands; the marks would be made by the printing device. The adjudication process itself can be done remotely over the internet with no audit logs, and the machines can be hacked into with relative ease.

The "traditional" fraud by mail-in voting, ballot harvesting, and so on still happens. But it's less necessary once the machines have sent enough ballots to adjudication. The adjudication process itself controls the results.

Facebook still disabling GOP political advertising right before the election

Washington ExaminerFacebook temporarily disabled a Republican advertising effort in the Georgia Senate runoffs days before the election.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee announced the “unacceptable” restrictions on Twitter, writing, “Facebook has shut down the ad account for the Georgia Battleground Fund, a joint fundraising committee for NRSC, @Perduesenate, and @kloeffler. This is unacceptable with only 4 days to Election Day.”

It's "unacceptable", but it's going to happen, and the Senate just shut down the last realistic chance to remove Section 230 protections from Big Tech. This sort of thing will keep happening now that the lack of consequences have been demonstrated.

Wisconsin resolution to award electoral votes to Trump

Gateway PunditThe state of Wisconsin has reportedly announced that it will introduce a resolution on Thursday morning to decertify the state’s electoral college votes and award them to President Trump.

So, the tricky parts here are: it has to pass both sides of the Wisconsin legislature (but probably does not need a governor's signature); it doesn't actually assign electors, just says the State Assembly shall take up legislation... and finally, if it happens on Thursday, it will be after Congress has had their official count (January 6th, or Wednesday). Does the timing matter here, if it's still before the 20th? I don't know. Maybe. And it wouldn't even be the timing of this resolution, but the timing of actual legislation to reassign the electors, which isn't even explicitly promised.

Even if the resolution passes, we still need to actually pass something reassigning the electors, and at least two other states to do the same for the total to change.

This is progress, but it's not the game-changer Gateway Pundit thinks it is.

PA vote totals showed over 400K votes removed from Trump

Epoch TimesPennsylvania election data shows that over 432,000 votes were removed from President Donald Trump during the November election, data scientists say.

According to an analysis by the Data Integrity Group, obtained exclusively by The Epoch Times, votes for Trump—from both Election Day and mail-in ballots—were removed from the totals in at least 15 counties.

Time-series election data shows Trump’s votes decrementing in various counties at numerous time points instead of increasing as would be expected under normal circumstances.

Why would a vote total EVER go down?

PA: 200k more votes than people who voted

PA State Rep Russ DiamondA group of state lawmakers performing extensive analysis of election data today revealed troubling discrepancies between the numbers of total votes counted and total number of voters who voted in the 2020 General Election, and as a result are questioning how the results of the presidential election could possibly have been certified by Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar and Governor Tom Wolf. These findings are in addition to prior concerns regarding actions by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, the Secretary, and others impacting the conduct of the election.

A comparison of official county election results to the total number of voters who voted on November 3, 2020 as recorded by the Department of State shows that 6,962,607 total ballots were reported as being cast, while DoS/SURE system records indicate that only 6,760,230 total voters actually voted. Among the 6,962,607 total ballots cast, 6,931,060 total votes were counted in the presidential race, including all three candidates on the ballot and write-in candidates.

Will anything be done about this? Of course not.

Texas Republican candidate beaten and tortured?

NYPostA former Texas state Senate candidate claims she was “gagged, bound [and] tortured” in a hotel — and three people have been arrested in connection with the assault.

Vanessa Tijerina, a Republican who lost in the November election, said she received a call about meeting to discuss “something very important regarding her safety” at a Texas Inn in Raymondville, news station KVEO reported.

Disturbing. Odd that it happened after the election, but maybe the intent was to scare her off of running again.

Trump campaign petitions SC in Wisconsin election case

Just The NewsThe Trump campaign is seeking to bring an election-related issue regarding the state of Wisconsin to the U.S. Supreme Court.

"Mayor Rudolph J. Giuliani, the Trump campaign’s lead attorney, today announced that the campaign filed a petition for a Writ of Certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court challenging the Wisconsin Supreme Court decision that allowed over 50,000 illegal absentee ballots in violation of Article II of the U.S. Constitution and Wisconsin law," a press release from the Trump campaign noted. "The filing seeks expedited consideration before the January 6 Congressional review of the Electoral College votes."

According to the Associated Press, Biden beat Trump in the state by about 21,000 votes.

The Supreme Court has so far shown no signs of the courage needed to step into election fraud issues. But there is still time to ask, and more evidence every day.

Arizona AG files brief supporting legislative subpoena of election machines

ElectionWizThe Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has filed a brief in support of Arizona legislature in the battle over whether the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors must comply with election-related subpoenas.

Earlier this month, the Maricopa Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 today defy the state lawmakers and resist complying with legislative subpoenas. Instead of allowing an audit, the board voted to file a lawsuit against lawmakers in state court, seeking to block the enforcement of the subpoenas.

The subpoenas were issued by Arizona lawmakers in response to claims that the election in Maricopa County was fraught with fraud. The lawmakers seek force county officials to allow an audit of the voting machines.

There's no justification for refusing this subpoena; the county must, therefore, have something significant to hide. But they don't have to actually win their case, just delay it past January 20th when nothing can be done about their cheating.

Whistleblower exposes vote fraud linked to Biden campaign in Texas

National FileDemocrat political strategist Damien Thaddeus Jones, who served as regional political director for Beto O’Rourke’s U.S. Senate campaign, has come forward to blow the whistle on a massive voter fraud ring in Harris County, Texas. The voter fraud ring is overseen by Dallas Jones, who served as Texas Political Director for the Joe Biden presidential campaign. In this stunning audio obtained exclusively by NATIONAL FILE, Damien goes into detail about Dallas Jones’ fraudulent activity and work for Biden. On the tape, “Sheila” refers to Sheila Jackson-Lee. This article below delves into the massive evidence of voter fraud — including photographic evidence and sworn affidavits — that emerged in Harris County in 2020, and how its direct link to the Biden campaign provides even more justification for President Donald Trump’s ability to claim victory in the presidential election.

Is this why the Dems were so vocal about turning Texas blue? It looks like they didn't manage it only because they got caught.

Professional retaliation: The swamp defends itself

UncoverDCComplaints about misconduct are often part of an attorney’s record, kept on file by a state bar association. Dealing with an investigation through the disciplinary process can easily become a costly and time consuming effort. What Keith, Nessel and Pascrell are doing is to put the attorneys who have represented Trump, or those who have fought to ensure that only legal votes are counted, through that process.

In essence, the goal is to deter other lawyers from working on election integrity in the future. Even if they do not secure any disciplinary action, putting Gaetz, Moody, Powell and DePerno (among others) through the process is still a form of punishment, particularly if multiple complaints are filed.

Without GOP lawyers willing to specialize in this field—something that will be a necessity as attorneys like Marc Elais use litigation to sidestep the constitutional powers of state legislatures and other executives also act unilaterally—it will be virtually impossible to ensure that every legal vote is counted transparently and in accordance with the laws passed by the state legislatures. If that cannot be ensured, then it is an open question as to whether the United States of America has free and fair elections.

The author is wrong about one thing. It won't be an open question. It will be a closed one -- as our elections will no longer be free or fair.

Senator Hawley will object to Biden's electors

NYPostRepublican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri said Wednesday he will object on Jan. 6 to President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.

His objection guarantees a last stand for President Trump, who unsuccessfully argued in lawsuits that fraud handed narrow wins to Biden in swing states.

“Following both the 2004 and 2016 elections, Democrats in Congress objected during the certification of electoral votes in order to raise concerns about election integrity. They were praised by Democratic leadership and the media when they did,” Hawley said in a statement.

“And they were entitled to do so. But now those of us concerned about the integrity of this election are entitled to do the same.”

Several Senators have spoken up suggesting they might do this. Mitch McConnell has been trying to keep a lid on it, fearing political consequences; the chances of winning such a vote in the Senate with a razor-thin majority are probably pretty slim. However, just having the objection take place with one member of the House and one of the Senate is enough to trigger contested election procedures.

Will it be enough? I dunno. But the objection will keep Trump in the game for a little longer.

But on the other hand, Pence will not be rejecting Biden's electors in his role as President of the Senate.

Bayou Renaissance ManThis, in a state where a judge (the sister of one of its leading progressive Democratic Party politicians) has just blocked the removal of invalid voters' names in two counties. She was asked to recuse herself from the case due to that relationship, but stated that "she found no reason for doing so".

GA SecState tries to blame-shift

NewsmaxGeorgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Wednesday called for an end to “no-excuse” absentee voting in the state, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

"The no-excuse system voted into law in 2005 -- long before most of you, if not all of you, long before I was in the General Assembly -- it makes no sense when we have three weeks of in-person early voting available," Raffensberger told the House Governmental Affairs Committee. "It opens the door to potential illegal voting, especially in light of the federal rules that deny us the ability to keep voter lists, registration files, clean."

This is simply Raffensberger trying to shift blame for the 2020 fraud to others. The law should be changed to block absentee voting entirely, absent reasonable excuse such as travel or illness. But advocating for it now is just a way to try to burnish his image and make up for his capitulation on other issues when they actually mattered -- 2020.

Direct evidence of foreign election interference?

The Federalist PapersFormer national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn said foreign partners can provide evidence that will show there was foreign influence at work in the Nov. 3 election.

Flynn, speaking to Lou Dobbs Friday on Fox Business, said that interference with elections was linked to the recent extensive infiltration of federal government systems through software made by a company called Solar Winds that was hacked.

“When we talk about our election security, Lou, I think this is all part of it because there’s a relationship between this Solar Winds attack which has basically penetrated our entire critical infrastructure, as well as our election security,” Flynn said.

“With all of the egregious behavior that we have seen on our elections security, we cannot stand for foreign influence, which we have direct evidence of,” he said.

If we do have this direct evidence, and it's not just some trivial ad buys on Facebook but things that actually could make a difference, that puts Trump in a much stronger political position. But the evidence has to be real and solid, not just allegations.

Trump considering Sidney Powell for special counsel?

Conservative TreehouseThe New York Times is reporting today on a Friday night visit between President Trump and lawyer Sidney Powell. According to the Times President Trump’s legal counsel Rudy Giuliani was present via phone conference and White House counsel Pat A. Cipollone represented the office of the President.

The Times reports “[p]art of the White House meeting on Friday night was a discussion about an executive order to take control of voting machines to examine them, according to one of the people briefed.” However legal advisors to the office of president are unsure if DHS would have authority to impound Dominion ballot machines. The 2018 executive order would seem to indicate that any office directed by the White House would have authority. This avenue would obviously depend on the DNI final report.

Ms. Powell has two lawsuits in the docket of the high court; however, as each day passes it seems the ability to confront known election fraud evidence becomes more challenging. It is likely Powell is recommending a more forceful approach by the executive branch that will support the lawsuits underway by her outside group.

I take no position on whether Sidney Powell should be a special counsel for vote fraud. I think someone needs to be, and if the President has to order voting machines seized as evidence in order to prove it, that needs to happen too. We need to know whether the election system has been corrupted to the degree Powell has alleged whether she is right or not. We cannot simply hope she is wrong, and it costs very little to check.

Arizona legislature calls for special session after subpoena refused

Federalist PapersA Republican Arizona state representative wants to push back even harder now that the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors is pushing back against a state effort to examine the county’s voting machines.

On Monday, the Arizona state Senate’s Judiciary Committee voted to issue subpoenas and seize machines made by Dominion Voting Systems that were used in Maricopa County, the state’s largest in terms of population.

On Friday, the Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to take the Senate committee to court rather than allow the machines to be examined, according to the Arizona Republic.

Now, Republican state Rep. Anthony Kern wants a special legislative session that will address election integrity.

The only reason I can come up with to try to block a state legislative subpoena for this information is that it will find something that would incriminate the local officials who ran the election.

Disregarding election laws

UncoverDCCalifornia has been mostly absent from the discussion of election law violation, but new information reveals that wording legally required to be on its ballots was missing, in direct violation of its own state law. This means the ballots should not have been cast or counted, yet California certified its ballots, and thus illegally cast its electoral votes for Joe Biden.

Let’s be clear about something: Our nation’s founders tried for years to work out their differences with England’s King George. But George was a tyrant, and a war broke out that lasted eight years. After that war, our founders avoided creating a government that was ruled by a man—they decided to be governed by laws.

Unfortunately, we now have states ignoring their own state and federal election laws, and by disregarding these laws, their election results must be nullified. Either that, or we’re no longer a country governed by laws.

The core problem here is that election laws are enforced by men who have a large stake in the outcomes of their enforcement decisions.

GA election officials trying to block open records requests for election machines

Just The NewsA recently revealed memo shows a top-ranking Georgia election official informing county election workers that they are not required to provide journalists and citizens with records of software updates applied to voting machines in the state.

Chris Harvey, the state elections division director, said in the Nov. 17 memo that “multiple counties have reported receiving Open Records Requests asking for data information” including, in part, “copies of any software patches performed on Dominion voting machines in the state of Georgia prior to the November 3, 2020 General Election.”

“Under the Open Records Act,” Harvey writes in the memo, “providing copies of software, software updates, or thumb drives containing software or software updates is not subject to open records requests.”

There's some truth to the idea that providing copies of software used and exact versions & patches applied has security implications, but after the election those security implications seem very minimal. At worst, such requests (aside from copies of the software itself, which is probably protected by vendor's copyright, unless the agreements made it available) should be delayed until after the January 5th runoff. After that, there's no real reason that the software versions and patches on the election machines at the time the elections were run should not be made available.

So... what is there to hide here?

Leaving the door open for vote fraud in GA runoff

Citizen Free PressThe Cobb County Board of Elections and Registration unanimously voted to deny a hearing on three separate challenges aimed at disqualifying thousands of Cobb County voters ahead of the Jan. 5 Senate runoff election.

Jason Shepherd told the board that he found evidence of approximately 16,024 people registered to vote in the county who reside outside of Georgia. The information was gathered by running the county’s voter registration database against the National Change of Address registry, he told the board in a letter earlier this month.

They may be right on the law in this case, but the law results in people voting when they aren't supposed to. And that leaves the door open to fraud.

Presenting the evidence of fraud

American ThinkerI propose that Donald Trump call an emergency session of Congress prior to January 6. There he, his legal team, director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, and secretary of state Mike Pompeo should present all of the information that they've uncovered as it pertains to illegalities and foreign interference uncovered prior to and during the 2020 presidential election.

Having Congress presented this information would likely not convince the entire Republican caucus, and likely none or few of the Democrat caucus, but it would provide enough cover for a few patriots to do the right thing on the 6th.

If Trump really wants to cross the Rubicon with the support of the American people, he needs to present the evidence in some forum well beyond what has already been done. That can be in courts, or in Congressional hearings, but it needs to happen somewhere and it needs to be in public view.

This is the first direct filing to the U.S. Supreme Court for intervention in the 2020 election and seeks expedited consideration prior to the January 6, 2021, congressional certification of the electoral college vote.

I don't think enough has changed on the ground to change the outcome of this case. I think the Supreme Court is willing to entertain the matter only so long as they can delay it past the election to avoid controversy. However, if enough other evidence of fraud emerges, that may change. The trick is convincing the Supreme Court that intervention is necessary in the court of public opinion. Left to their own devices the court would prefer to settle legal matters after Jan 20th.

Unfortunately, a decision has been made to not reappoint you in a poll management or other poll positions in Fulton County.”

What options remain?

NewsmaxFormer national security adviser Michael Flynn says President Donald Trump has options to make sure the integrity of the 2020 election remains intact, including seizing voting machines around the country and using military capabilities to rerun elections in swing states.

''I don’t know if he’s going to take any of these options. The president has to plan for every eventuality because we cannot allow this election and the integrity of our election to go the way it is,'' Flynn said Thursday during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s ''Greg Kelly Reports.''

''This is just totally unsatisfactory. There’s no way in the world we’re going to be able to move forward as a nation with this. …

''He could immediately on his order seize every single one of these machines around the country on his order. He could also order, within the swing states, if he wanted to, he could take military capabilities and he could place them in those states and basically rerun an election in each of those states. It’s not unprecedented,'' Flynn added.

I think selling a military revote in the swing states to the American people would be a big challenge. But seizing the voter machines to demonstrate the fraud would be a smaller and more reasonable step that might convince the public that a big remedy is necessary.

Amistad project demands preservation of voting machine evidence

NewsmaxThe Amistad Project of the non-partisan Thomas More Society is announcing Monday it is demanding the preservation of evidence in five key swing states in response to a bombshell report detailing the results of a forensic audit of Dominion voting machines in Antrim County, Michigan, which was approved for release by 13th Circuit Judge Kevin Elsenheimer.

"We're filing in all swing states a demand that judges step in and preserve evidence to avoid it from being destroyed or spoiled by the intentional or reckless acts of executive officials," said Phill Kline, director of the Amistad Project, which has previously filed election litigation in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

We'll see if any courts take these demands seriously.

130,000 illegal votes in NV

PJMediaBinnall said that their data study, along with “brave whistleblower” testimony, revealed that there were at least 130,000 unique fraudulent votes. Here’s the breakdown of the ones they could verify and have been provided to the public.

42,000 people voted more than once
1,500 dead voters cast ballots
19,000 non-Nevada residents voted (number doesn’t include students and military)
8,000 people voted using non-existent addresses
15,000 votes were cast from commercial addresses or vacant houses
4,000 ineligible foreign nationals voted

Binnall said 130,000 is probably a low number.

Youtube is censoring his testimony, but you can see it on Twitter.

Navarro produces election report

NewsmaxWhite House trade adviser Peter Navarro issued a blistering 36-page report Thursday, in which he asserted that voter irregularities and election fraud have been found in "more than sufficient" quantities to swing the election to President Donald Trump.

The Navarro report was titled "The Immaculate Deception: Six Key Dimensions of Election Irregularities," and it "assesses the fairness and integrity of the 2020 Presidential Election by examining six dimensions of alleged election irregularities across six key battleground states."

"The observed patterns of election irregularities are so consistent across the six battleground states that they suggest a coordinated strategy to, if not steal the election outright, strategically game the election process in such a way as to 'stuff the ballot box' and unfairly tilt the playing field in favor of the Biden-Harris ticket," Navarro's report alleged.

He's right, but... is anyone paying attention? Probably not.

Judge rejects dropbox challenge in GA

NewsmaxAn attempt by Georgia Republicans to eliminate absentee drop boxes used for early voting in the state’s two Senate runoff elections was scrapped by a federal judge on Thursday.

Fox News reports that a federal judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia dismissed the case brought by the 12th Congressional District Republican Committee. Chief Judge Randall Hall ruled the plaintiffs didn't have standing and that courts shouldn’t change election rules so close to an election.

And again we have the judicial dance. No standing because no injury yet; too close to the election... and after the election, no standing unless it would change the results, and too late because you waited until you after the election when you would have standing. Courts just don't want to touch these issues.

Unless they are brought by Democrats and the SecState settles.

Tuberville suggested he would back a challenge Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) has vowed to bring against the vote. If a senator joins Brooks, it would require the House and Senate to debate and then vote on the issue.

We absolutely must have this debate, with all available evidence presented. This will likely be the last chance we have to actually change the outcome, and the evidence presented will need to be absolutely damning.

Cyberhack much bigger than already reported

NewsmaxA foreign hack of the U.S. government is even bigger than originally thought, according to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

The Washington Examiner reports the agency shared that the cyber hackers gained secretive backdoor access in more ways than just through the publicly known SolarWinds software update being corrupted.

“One of the initial access vectors for this activity is a supply chain compromise of the following SolarWinds Orion products. CISA has evidence of additional initial access vectors, other than the SolarWinds Orion platform; however, these are still being investigated,” CISA wrote on Thursday, noting that “the SolarWinds Orion supply chain compromise is not the only initial infection vector this advanced persistent threat actor leveraged.”

The magnitude of this as already reported is huge.

The timing -- almost exactly aligned with the forensic audit of Dominion voting systems in Antrim country, which is known to use the Solarwinds product -- is also extremely suspicious.

Foreign election interference report delayed

Fox NewsThe 2020 Intelligence Community Assessment focused on foreign election influence will be delayed, Fox News has learned, amid a dispute among senior intelligence analysts over whether China sought to influence the election.

"This afternoon the DNI was notified by career intelligence officials that the Intelligence Community will not meet the December 18 deadline, set by Executive Order and Congress, to submit the IC’s classified assessment on foreign threats to the 2020 U.S. elections," Amanda Schoch, Assistant DNI for Strategic Communications said in a statement to Fox News.

"The IC has received relevant reporting since the election and a number of agencies have not finished coordinating on the product," Schoch continued. "The DNI is committed to providing this report to our customers expeditiously."

The report was expected to be released by Friday, but sources familiar told Fox News that there is a dispute within the intelligence community over what should be included in this 2020 ICA.

Sources told Fox News that a number of senior intelligence analysts are "adamant" that China sought to influence the 2020 presidential election, while a number of others are downplaying China’s activities surrounding the election.

I am very suspicious of the motives of the intelligence community here, both in hiding information and delaying the report.

The three government investigative bodies are reportedly working together on the SolarWinds breach that was announced earlier this week.

Powell files appeals to the Supreme Court from MI and GA

NewsmaxFormer Donald Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell asked the Supreme Court to overturn Joe Biden’s election victories in Michigan and Georgia, continuing with a flurry of long shot litigation despite repeated rejections in the courts.

The Supreme Court has already spurned two efforts to nullify Biden victories, first a challenge to his Pennsylvania triumph and then a Texas lawsuit that sought to reverse the results in four pivotal states.

The SC has actually not disposed of the PA case; it rejected an emergency injunction but there is a pending request to hear the case on the normal schedule.

However, the tea leaves are not positive for Powell's cases. The one bright spot is that forensic audits have turned up new evidence suggesting at least some of the Dominion voting machines have been compromised and the election results tampered with. If more such evidence turns up, courts may start to take notice. Legislatures appear to have taken notice already.

Non-citizens voting

The National PulseData obtained by the Nevada GOP from the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles reveals that thousands of non-citizens were registered to vote and ultimately cast ballots in the 2020 election.

The revelation, adding to a long list of fraudulent election activities in the critical swing state, comes as a result of Nevada’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) automatically registering all voters who apply for driver’s licenses. Since legal and illegal non-citizens can hold driver’s licenses and identification cards, if the DMV fails to “do their due diligence,” non-citizens can easily be registered to vote, as explained by the Nevada GOP.

This is a long-standing problem that needs federal legislation to fix, I think. It's the '92? Motor-Voter act. That needs to get amended to require (not just ALLOW, but REQUIRE) states to check citizenship before registration to vote. Looking at the makeup of Congress, my best guess on when we can pass that legislation is never.

In the meantime, though, we can prosecute those who actually vote.

Arizona to subpoena voting machines and conduct an audit

The Federalist PapersVoting machines used in Arizona’s Maricopa County may now be subject to inspection following action by a state legislator on Monday to begin the process of seizing the machines.

The action by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Eddie Farnsworth came after a six-hour hearing concerning the election and the ability of Arizona residents to trust the results, according to KJZZ-FM.

“We hold an audit and we see what the outcome is,” he said. “And then we can put this to rest.”

Subpoenas to seize the machines could be issued as soon as Tuesday, according to Farnsworth.

The subpoenas have now been issued. Frankly, this should be done after every election as a matter of ordinary business, with the results published.

Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling offers some hope for Trump

Just The NewsThe Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled Monday that state and local election officials erred when they gave blanket permission allowing voters to declare themselves homebound and skip voter ID requirements in the 2020 election, potentially opening the door for Republicans to challenge tens of thousand of ballots.

In a case challenging the practice in Dane County, one of Wisconsin's large urban center around the city of Madison, the state's highest court ruled only those voters whose "own age, physical illness or infirmity" makes them homebound could declare themselves "indefinitely confined" and avoid complying with a requirement for photo ID.

The mere existence of a COVID-19 pandemic and shutdown orders was not sufficient under Wisconsin law for all persons to skip the voter ID requirements, the justices ruled.

There are enough "indefinitely confined due to COVID" illegal votes to overturn the election. Hillary may be warming up, but she ain't sung yet.

Biden performed 1.5% better in states using Dominion

ElectionWiz“Statistical analysis of past presidential races supports the view that in 2020, in counties where Dominion Machines were deployed, the voting outcomes were on average (nationwide) 1.5% higher for Joe Biden and 1.5% lower for Donald Trump after adjusting for other demographic and past voting preference.

For Dominion to have switched the election from Trump to Biden, it would have had to have increased Biden outcomes (with a corresponding reduction in Trump outcomes) by 0.3% in Georgia, 0.6% in Arizona, 2.1% in Wisconsin, and 2.5% in Nevada. The apparent average of 1.5% “Dominion Effect” is greater than the margin in Arizona and Georgia, and close to the margin for Wisconsin and Nevada. It is not hard to picture a scenario where the actual effect in Wisconsin and Nevada was greater than the national average and would have changed the current reported outcome in those two states.

Assuming the “Dominion Effect” is real, it is possible that an audit of these machines would overturn the election.

These results are scientifically valid and have a p-value of less than 1%, meaning the chances of this math occurring randomly are less than 1 in 100.”

We already have one audit that demonstrated conclusively that the machines were tampered with in such a way as to send 70% of all ballots to manual adjudication, and to remove the audit logs concerning the election and adjudication process.

Dominion, Solarwinds, and Barr...

Gateway PunditLast night the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued a rare Emergency Directive 21-01, in response to a KNOWN COMPROMISE involving SolarWinds Orion products.

This was only the fifth Emergency Directive issued by CISA under the authorities granted by Congress in the Cybersecurity Act of 2015.

CISA reported a breach of the SolarWinds Orion products.

This Emergency Directive called on all federal civilian agencies to review their networks for indicators of compromise and disconnect or power down SolarWinds Orion products immediately.

So guess who uses SolarWinds?

Dominion Voting Systems uses SolarWinds products.

This seems likely to be part of the non-public fallout from the forensic audit of the Dominion Voting Systems hardware in Michigan -- the audit that found the systems were compromised to produce an artificially high error rate, where ballot adjudication can be used to steal the election, and that crucial security and audit logs were missing from the systems, suggesting them were compromised and the logs removed.

I wouldn't be surprised if Barr's departure is also related to this -- either because Barr didn't find it or didn't want to follow up on it.

It feels like the dominoes have started to fall.

GA double voting problem hasn't been solved

Real Clear InvestigationsMore than 1,700 Georgians were singled out for illegally casting two ballots in 2020 elections — including last month’s hotly contested presidential race -- but their fraudulent votes weren't canceled out, according to state election officials. And so far, none of the cheaters has been prosecuted, raising concerns about continued fraud as Georgia prepares to vote again in twin U.S. Senate runoff elections next month.

The majority of double voters were Democrats who cast an absentee ballot either by mail or drop box and also voted in person on Election Day, officials said, which is a felony under state law.

The highest share of offenders were from Fulton County, which includes Atlanta -- many of whom were allowed to cast a second ballot by poll workers, officials said.

Trump argues case in Wisconsin Supreme Court

Milwaukee Journal SentinelThe state Supreme Court showed deep divisions Saturday as it contemplated a final push by President Donald Trump to throw out Democrat Joe Biden's narrow win in Wisconsin.

The arguments — a rarity on a weekend — came amid a string of legal setbacks for the president. During the arguments, a federal judge in Milwaukee ruled against Trump, dealing the seventh defeat to Trump and his allies in 10 days over Wisconsin's results.

The three liberals on the state's high court showed extreme skepticism toward Trump's arguments. Three conservatives showed some support for at least parts of his claims.

Unclear were the views of Justice Brian Hagedorn, who was elected last year with the support of Republicans but has sided at times with the liberals. He joined the liberals last week in turning down three other challenges to Wisconsin's election results.

In the latest case, the justices are expected to rule before the Electoral College meets at noon Monday.

I haven't seen any word on a ruling yet.

I can't bring myself to be optimistic about their chances after the Texas case got shot down, but at least it was shot down on standing and not the merits. We will see if the Supreme Court will hear cases with different standing arguments. This description of how the Wisconsin Supreme Court hearing went is a little disconcerting. While I'm unconvinced by yet another invocation of laches, and I think the legal claims about election procedures have more merit than the author does, the failure to present evidence of fraud given the opportunity is concerning.

Were automated test ballots used to commit election fraud?

Gateway PunditThe Automated Test Deck Generator creates comprehensive test decks for efficient and easy logic & accuracy testing. Using the election project database, a deck of vote-marked ballots is randomly generated to provide the highest assurance of system accuracy. When scanned, these automated test deck ballots create known outcomes that can be compared with the tabulated results, providing verification of both the quality of the printed ballots as well as the complete accuracy of each tabulator.”

Are these the “pristine ballots” with the identical ballot markings as Fulton County Poll Manager Susan Voyles testified to in her hearing? Where else have we seen stacks of ballots, some pristine, with predictable 95%+ Biden results?

This is one of those technologies that can have legitimate uses, and can also be abused for improper purposes. One would hope that test ballots would be automatically marked in some way to avoid them being counted in a real election (although that has its own problems, too). Fundamentally it's a choice between testing with valid normal ballots versus testing with special test ballots that might have special code to handle. The right answer is probably to keep stringent protections on the test ballot generator combined with logs of which ballots were generated as tests so they can be removed from any actual results. It doesn't sound like those controls are in place.

NewsmaxRudy Giuliani says President Donald Trump’s legal battle will go on despite the Supreme Court rejecting a bid Friday from Texas’ attorney general to block the ballots of millions of voters in battleground states that went in favor of Joe Biden.

“The case wasn’t rejected on the merits, the case was rejected on standing,” Giuliani said Friday during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “Stinchfield.”

“The answer to that is to bring the case now in the district court by the president, by some of the electors, alleging the same facts where there would be standing and therefore get a hearing.”

I admire his ability to stay optimistic, I really do. And maybe he's right; maybe the issue was just standing. Maybe enough of the other cases will be heard and change the result. But maybe -- probably -- they won't.

The question remains. What do we do now, when "just win the next election" can be negated by blatant cheating?

Sen Ron Johnson to hold hearing on election Weds

The Federalist PapersAlthough Election Day was more than a month ago, questions about the validity of the 2020 presidential election still hang heavy in the air.

For this reason, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has set a hearing for Wednesday to get to the bottom of some of what its chairman, Sen. Ron Johnson, has called “irregularities.”

The Senate will hold hearings, but what will those hearings change? What new information will become available, and who can act to change this course?

At this point we really are needing a hail mary. Unless Trump has something really fucking big and a complete game-changer left in his hat, Biden will take office and we will descend into socialism and tyranny.

There are a few slim rays of hope left. Several cases are moving through the appeals process. The legislatures may still act. The Antrim county forensic audit of the Dominion machines seems to have turned up something that is still under seal. And the report on foreign interference in the elections is due no later than December 18th, next week. But I have no reason to think any of those will turn out any better than the various tactics and lawsuits that have already failed.

NewsmaxPresident Donald Trump's campaign was handed a unanimous defeat Friday at the Michigan Supreme Court, which declined to hear an appeal about how absentee ballots were handled in Detroit as well as other issues.
The president's campaign claimed the Republican Party wasn't allowed to get an appropriate number of observers inside a Detroit convention center where absentee ballots were counted. The campaign also wanted access to video of ballot drop boxes. A judge and the Michigan appeals court ruled against Trump.

So apparently we're not even allowed to observe the vote in process and examine evidence afterwards? We just have to take it on faith, and when access is denied, that doesn't mean anything?

Wisconsin SC agrees to hear Trump case

NewsmaxThe conservative-controlled Wisconsin Supreme Court agreed on Friday to hear arguments over the weekend on President Donald Trump's state lawsuit seeking to disqualify more than 221,000 ballots and overturn his loss to Democrat Joe Biden in the battleground state.

The court's decision to take the case, and to hear arguments on Saturday, came hours after a lower court judge ruled against Trump and said there was nothing illegal about the election or subsequent recount in the state's two largest counties. The fast action comes ahead of Monday's scheduled Electoral College vote.

I'm past actually hoping for relief from the courts at this point. Technically, the cases are still in progress and could result in a positive outcome. But I can't believe they actually will. It's a very demoralizing process.

Two more appeals to the Supreme Court....

NewsmaxArizona’s Republican Party chairwoman appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court as part of a long-shot effort to nullify Joe Biden’s victory there in the presidential election, according to a filing posted online by a Democratic lawyer.

The high court on Friday also got an emergency filing from former Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell seeking to decertify Biden’s victory in Georgia, according to Democratic lawyer Marc Elias, who has been active in the post-election litigation. Neither case has been formally docketed at the Supreme Court.

... but what are the odds they will be heard?

HR 8189 blocks votes received after election day from being counted

NewsmaxIn September, I introduced H.R. 8189, which amends the Help America Vote Act of 2002 to generally prohibit states from counting ballots that are received after the date of a federal election. However, the prohibition reasonably does not apply to absentee ballots that are lawfully cast by uniformed service members, their family members, or overseas citizens.
Without the federal prohibition established in H.R. 8189, it’s clear that political and corrupt state officials will shamelessly override the will of the people to unlawfully allow for fraudulent votes. Due to Congress’ failure to act in anticipation of what has now come to fruition, the integrity of our elections is already in grave jeopardy.

It will never pass. The Democrats have learned that they can steal an election in broad daylight and no one will stop them.

Arizona legislature to hold hearing on election fraud

National FileThe Arizona Senate has finally called a full legislative hearing to investigate the irregularities seen during the presidential election.

The announced agenda will include presentations from the Election Day and Emergency Voting Division from Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, and the Arizona Attorney General’s Election Integrity Unit, followed by discussion and questions. With the announced agenda, it seems that the Committee will not call anyone from Dominion Voting Systems to be questioned, as had been posited by online commentary

I'm not sure if this happened or not.

Washington State governor's race now has a pending lawsuit

Gateway PunditThe Republican candidate for governor in Washington state, Loren Culp, is suing the Washington Secretary of State for mismanaging the 2020 election.

Culp, who won what looks like the entire state besides Seattle, believes the election was rotten. The Culp for governor campaign filed a lawsuit yesterday against the Washington Secretary of State for election improprieties and demanding a full audit of the ballots and voting machines.

Another demand for a voting machine audit, too. If any of Sidney Powell's claims have real meat behind them -- by which I mean, there was not just potential for fraud and foreign actors, but actual people using the security holes in the Dominion system to commit actual election rigging -- then there are a LOT of applecarts about to be turned over.

Arizona election lawsuit appealing to Supreme Court

The Federalist PapersArizona Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward announced Thursday that she is appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court her federal case regarding alleged irregularities with the voting software used in November’s election.

On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Diane J. Humetewa, who was appointed in 2013 by then-President Barack Obama, dismissed the case, which was launched by attorney Sidney Powell but named Ward as a plaintiff, The Washington Times reported.

The lawsuit claims “Dominion Voting Systems’ machines connected to the internet, which violates election laws,” The Times reported. “Dominion is not listed as a defendant, as the suits challenge state officials, but the company has denied any wrongdoing in the 2020 election.”

The case contests more than 412,000 of the votes cast.

The results of this forensic audit may add more weight here.

Antrim County forensic audit bears fruit

Washington ExaminerHe said that his team is already in possession of the “forensic images” and that “some conclusions” have already been made from the information. DePerno also took notice of how Benson’s office characterized an apparent glitch that temporarily invalidated 6,000 votes erroneously tabulated for President-elect Joe Biden rather than Trump. He said the state has characterized it as a tabulation error.

“We believe now that that statement was false,” DePerno claimed, adding that they have seen “serious security breaches.”

DePerno said that prior to the hearing, he had received two affidavits that detailed “significant errors” that occurred during the election and noted that his client believes the results in the county are “uncertifiable” and called for decertification of the election.

The lawyer said that his team will be filing a motion regarding a protective order that was put in place dealing with what information can be released publicly. He called the matter an issue of national security.

He's making big claims, and it looks like he can back them up for Antrim County. But do the results apply to other counties?

Sidney Powell on Lou Dobbs

Gateway PunditThey designed and developed the Smartmatic and Dominion programs and machines that included a controller module that allows people to log in and manipulate the vote even as it’s happening. We’re finding more and more evidence of this. We now have reams and reams of actual documents from Smartmatic and Dominion including evidence that they planned and executed all of this.

The key thing that remains missing here is evidence that this "controller module" was actually used fraudulently during the election to flip the race for Biden and possibly others. Ballot adjudication of unclear ballots is .. I won't say normal, because I would just toss out ballots unreadable by machine as the machine is or should be an impartial process... so let's say adjudication is expected.

Descriptions I've seen of how Dominion implements the adjudication process appear to me to be ripe for fraud and abuse and a security/audit nightmare. But that, too, is not proof of fraud.

BOMBSHELL: Forensic audit of Dominion voting system available

Steve Gruber2.) Item 6: The allowable election error rate established by the Federal Election Commission guidelines is of 1 in 250,000 ballots (.0008%). We observed an error rate of 68.05%. This demonstrated a significant and fatal error in security and election integrity.
3.) Item 15: Significantly, the computer system shows vote adjudication logs for prior years, but all adjudication log entries for the 2020 election cycle are missing.
4.) Item 16: Likewise, all server security logs prior to 11:03pm on November 4, 2020 are missing. Other server logs before November 4, 2020 are present, therefore, there is no reasonable explanation for the security logs to be missing.

The high error rate is significant because it would result in sending almost 70% of votes to the adjudication process, where the administrator could decide which candidate would receive the votes.

The missing adjudication logs for 2020 along with the presence of those logs for prior years indicates that the adjudication logs were deliberately removed this year. Deliberately.

The missing logs for 2020 in general are also troubling and indicates someone was deliberately wiping evidence.

Steve Gruber6.) Item 22: we conclude that the errors are so significant that they call into question the integrity and legitimacy of the results in the Antrim County 2020 election to the point that the results are not certifiable. Because the same machines are used in 48 other counties in Michigan, this casts doubt on the integrity of the entire election in the state of Michigan.

And by extension similar systems used in other states, including most of the battleground states at issue. However, without a forensic audit of those systems, we won't know whether they have the same specific problems (missing logs, absurdly high error and adjudication rates) that demonstrate the step for a possibility of fraud to probability of fraud.

We do appear to have proof of fraud in Antrim County, specifically the high error/adjudication rate, the vote swap, and the missing log files.

The full report is available.

House Republicans call for special counsel on election fraud

The BlazeA group of 27 Republican members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to President Trump on Wednesday urging him to direct Attorney General William Barr to launch a special counsel investigation into 2020 election "irregularities."

I certainly don't trust the FBI to investigate this, and I don't think I trust Barr. A special counsel may be the only possible answer if Biden or any of his team were involved; and remember when Biden announced he had the best voter fraud team ever?

Conservative TreehouseAppearing with Maria Bartiromo, former national security advisor, Lt General Michael Flynn, states: “we have conclusive evidence of foreign interference in our election.” Mr. Flynn goes on to say his attorney, Sidney Powell, has four cases en route to the United States Supreme Court to highlight the “overwhelming evidence” of election fraud.

Additionally, General Flynn states it would serve the best interests of the United States if President Trump would trigger his 2018 executive order on foreign election interference to appoint a federal special counsel – to look into all of the background claims of fraud on behalf of the executive branch of government. A very interesting interview.

"Conclusive evidence" is a strong statement. He says it's available on the Wood and Powell websites, which ... doesn't seem like it's anything new yet?

We need more than hypothetical evidence, and that's something we'll only get from a forensic audit.

Massive cyber fraud found in Antrim voting machine audit?

CDMediaCDMedia has been informed by sources close to the investigation that cyber teams which examined Dominion Voting Systems machines in Antrim County, Michigan last weekend have found concrete proof of massive cyber election fraud.

Dominion voting machines were connected to the internet.
Illegal Votes are thought to have been shipped to Europe for ‘adjudication’.

There is more coming on this story but essentially fake ballots in massive amounts were counted and ‘approved’ in Europe, in either Spain or Germany.

Take with grains of salt because as far as I know this information is still under court ordered seal. Even if true, Dominion machines being connected to the internet isn't evidence of vote fraud even if it is evidence the public has been lied to. (That point, in my opinion, is already established; Dominion machines are absolutely connected to the internet). The "remote adjudication" feature is also established, but does not necessarily demonstrate fraud. The question is who does the adjudication, is it in accordance with the law, and is it done honestly.

Sending ballots to Europe for adjudication is definitely suspicious; shouldn't they be adjudicated by local workers? That part has been suggested by traffic analysis but not yet proven.

If it can be proven that the error rate on dominion machines was set to an excessively high number, thus sending massive numbers of ballots into the adjudication process where administrators can essentially assign them to anyone without an audit trail, that would be about the first half of a smoking gun that we need. The other half would be who was adjudicating those ballots and were they doing so honestly or falsely.

This is worth keeping an eye on, but nothing solid yet.

100+ Republican House members support Texas case

Just The NewsMore than 100 Republican House members signed an amicus brief filed Thursday in support of a lawsuit that seeks to overturn the election results in the battleground states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Just The NewsTwo Republican members of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives filed an amicus curiae brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of Texas in connection with the Lone Star State's election-related lawsuit that targets Pennsylvania and other states.

Bryan Cutler, the speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, and Kerry Benninghoff, the majority leader of that legislative body, filed the brief which focuses exclusively on issues pertaining to their own state, not to any of the other states targeted by Texas in the suit.

The Texas case looks like it's the one that's going to matter. The inclusion of the PA House Majority requesting to file amicus briefing in support of Texas against their own state is dramatic and telling. This isn't really Texas v 4 States; it's Texas v the Executive and Judicial Branches of 4 States. The authority to govern elections rests with the state legislatures and that authority was usurped.

We may see more state legislatures file as amici supporting Texas. And for each of those four states that does have legislative support for Texas, the case gets stronger.

Summarizing the Texas case

American ThinkerTexas claims that the presidential elections as held (and as directed by government officials outside the legislature) in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Michigan all flagrantly violated their own election laws by materially weakening or doing away with security measures. Further, according to the U.S. Constitution, the legislature (representing the citizens) of each state has absolute authority and responsibility for how presidential electors are chosen; the will of legislature being expressed through state law.

Texas claims that the violations of election law in these states created an environment where ballot fraud was enabled and likely to occur. The lawsuit lists the violations of law in each of the defendant states and provides evidence of fraud (the number of ballots handled unconstitutionally) in each of the states sufficient to change the outcome of the ballot counts.

This summarizes the Texas claims by state.

Missing chain of custody documents in GA for ballot drop boxes

Just The NewsOfficials in Georgia have yet to produce documents to establish the chain of custody for roughly 83 percent of the estimated 600,000 absentee ballots placed in drop boxes during the Nov. 3 elections – with voting for the two Senate runoff elections less than a month away.

The ballots placed in the drop boxes by voters are then delivered to county election officials by county poll workers. But state and county officials still have not produced the documents to show the clear chain of custody, according to the Georgia State News.

Why is it so hard to produce the chain of custody documents -- if they exist?

And if they don't exist, and they are required to exist, their absence creates a negative inference.

Supreme Court declines to hear Texas case

Fox News“The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution,” the Supreme Court’s order reads. “Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.”

The order does not foreclose any other pending or future election appeals at the Supreme Court, but time is running out. The states meet next week on Dec. 14 for the Electoral College exercise. And on Jan. 6 there will be a joint session of the House and Senate to count the electoral votes and certify President-elect Joe Biden as the winner.

Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas said they would have heard the case -- without granting other relief, like issuing an injunction on electoral proceedings. They added that they expressed "no view on any other issue."

There are other cases still alive. But the denial here of a clean, coherent case to address everything at once by a 7-2 vote is extremely disappointing. In reply I can only quote another judge:

Borepatch quoting KozinskiThe Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed - where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.

The Supreme Court has just declared that it has no courage to oppose a blatant electoral theft. Where, now, do honest citizens go for relief from a government that has refused to provide for an honest election? When you remove all legal, peaceable remedies, when you silence the opposition so their voices go unheard, when you corrupt the elections such that the party of government always wins, what then is left to an honest man who will not bend the knee to a tyrant?

Another Trump lawsuit in GA

Gateway PunditA massive lawsuit from President Donald Trump lays out tens of thousands of illegal votes for Joe Biden — well beyond the 11,779 vote margin.

The lawsuit was filed on Friday, but had to be refiled after the Fulton County Superior Court rejected it on Monday due to incorrect paperwork and missing filing fees. Both issues have now been corrected.

Some of the highlights of the 1,585 page suit include 2,560 felons who voted, 66,247 underage voters, and 2,423 votes from people who were not registered.

The lawsuit additionally lists 1,043 individuals registered at PO boxes, 4,926 individuals who voted in Georgia after registering in another state, 395 individuals who voted in two states, 15,700 votes from people who moved out of state before the election, 40,279 votes of people who moved without re-registering in their new county and 30,000 – 40,000 absentee ballots lacking proper signature matching and verification.

This one looks pretty strong.

GA sheriffs offer help with fraud investigations

Fox 5 AtlantaTwo Georgia sheriffs are offering their office's investigators to the secretary of state to help him look into cases of voter fraud in the recent election.

On Facebook, Oconee County Sheriff Scott R. Berry said he and other sheriffs "stand ready to vigorously investigate voter fraud across this State and to ensure everyone's vote counts."

According to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, his office has over 250 open cases related to the election. These elections included possible double voting, absentee ballot fraud, and other allegations. The secretary of state's office only has 23 investigators, but Raffensperger requested assistance from the Georgia Bureau of Investigations to help get the caseload done quickly.

" I am offering, at no cost, the services of our crime scene specialists and investigators to augment your own office's own capability to investigate said suspected offenses and report their findings to you, the local district attorney, and our state Attorney General," Berry said.

Why do I suspect these offers will not be accepted?

A free and fair election this was not

Real Clear PoliticsThere are common international standards about what makes an election “free and fair.” These criteria, summarized by the Inter-Parliamentary Union, include: the “absolute” right to a secret ballot; the right to “express political opinions without interference; [t]o seek, receive and impart information and to make an informed choice”; the right of candidates to “equal opportunity of access to the media”; the “right of candidates to security”; freedom of association, and others.

Many of these were violated in 2020.

“Fraud” was not as important as what Democrats were able to accomplish legally, for example, by pushing the country to adopt vote-by-mail on a massive scale.

Proof of fraud is hard, especially under a time limit. But proof that the election was not a free and fair one is easy. All you have to do is look at the censorship, the last minute rule changes, the ejection of poll watchers, the reluctance to allow audits.

GA officials can't replicate numbers during recount

Gateway PunditCoffee County Georgia officials sent out a letter last week to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. County officials told Raffensperger they were not able to duplicate the election night results on their voting machines. Since they couldn’t duplicate their numbers with the fancy voting machines they went with their original numbers.

There's not really enough information here to know for sure how significant it is. The very lack of information suggests it has some significance, though. If they "couldn't replicate their numbers" and the discrepancy was minor, just a few votes one way or the other, no one would care. If it was a lot more for Biden on the recount, people wouldn't care because the outcome wouldn't change. So they must have gotten a lot more for Trump when they recounted, and they don't want to admit that because they are partisans, or they would be implicated in fraud, or both.

Stuffing the ballot boxes

Gateway PunditA witness who works for the Detroit government came forward exclusively to the Gateway Pundit and said that when she was driving by the Zuckerberg boxes at 9:15pm on election day, she saw several people still stuffing the boxes with potentially hundreds of ballots. The boxes were required to be locked and sealed at 8:00pm. The witness is in fear of retaliation by her politically connected employer but is completely sure of what she saw.

Another Detroit government whistleblower came forward last week. Jessy Jacob testified before the Michigan House a week ago, she is a worker for the City of Detroit and witnessed that the policy was toward ignoring Michigan election law and facilitating voter fraud. Jacob had previously submitted a sworn affidavit in filed litigation that went before Wayne County Judge Tim Kenny.

The video of these Zuckerberg boxes, or the unlawful destruction of the video evidence around them, will be a telling flashpoint in what is shaping up to be the most contentious election in American history.

Even now the Left cannot understand what it has done

Gates of ViennaThe anger of Trump’s supporters is white hot, it is incendiary, it is real and it is entirely, eminently justifiable, and it is not the anger of the loser, it is the anger of the wronged and is about so much more than Trump, this is about the democratic future of the United States of America. When a country reaches the point of such legal corruption and such moral degeneracy that democracy can be overturned in full view of a complicit and unquestioning media and liberal establishment there is very little guarantee that democracy will ever recover. This is why the anger is at boiling point, and even now, the left cannot understand what they have done.

Bayou Renaissance ManIf the left had won this election by legal and above-board means, we'd have accepted that as the will of the people. I certainly would have. However, the attempted theft of this election by the progressive left, so abundantly demonstrated in recent weeks, will not be allowed to stand. That's our bottom line. One way or another, it must and will be stopped - and that's why Mr. Weston's warnings may become grim reality.

The Democrats are playing with fire here. Their theft was too obvious and too blatent.

Pennsylvania, et al. are two pending cases before the Supreme Court. There are many, many witnesses who have signed affidavits alleging voter fraud in various states.

But, according to YouTube, you don’t have a right to see that evidence or be told that fraud even occurred. Your ability to view content and make your own decision about the evidence is superseded by their desire to keep you in the dark about not just mere allegations, but evidence as well. Will YouTube not allow live streaming of hearings alleging ballot fraud too? Should the Supreme Court take up any of the current challenges, will any coverage related to those challenges be allowed on their platform?

There is an increasing air of desperation to their demands that we shut up.

Working with the Voter Integrity Project, IRLI conceded that the numbers were not enough to overturn election results but point to the lack of “political will” by government officials to clean up their rolls.

House Republicans call for special counsel on election fraud

Just The NewsDozens of House Republicans have joined in an effort to urge President Trump to get Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate election irregularities.

The 27 GOP congressmen made the request for the appointment of a special counsel in a letter Wednesday to Trump. Texas Rep. Lance Gooden sent the letter with just his signature to the president last week and later gathered more signatures from GOP lawmakers in support of the effort.

Gooden sent the letter after Barr said the Justice Department has yet to find voter fraud in the Nov. 3 presidential election significant enough to change the outcome of the results.

I think this is actually a bad idea at the present time. The moment a special counsel is appointed he will start to shut things down to preserve the secrecy of his investigation. That's exactly what we don't need. The right time for a special counsel is January 19th, after all the public information and affidavits have been reviewed and verified to the extent possible, the machines have been audited and the results released, and so on. Give the special counsel the best starting point we can give him without hiding information from the public or reducing the pressure on Congress.

Trump promises election system overhaul "after we win"

OANNPresident Trump has called for an overhaul of U.S. election systems. During his Valdosta, Georgia rally on Saturday, the President said he has plans to push forward “critical election reform” to ensure the safety of future elections.
President Trump expressed concern for voting systems in the U.S. and voiced a desire to push forward legislation requiring voter identification as well as other security reforms.

“And after we win, we need to pass landmark election reform, including voter I.D.,” he stated. “Is that so bad? Residency verification…like we live in the country, we live in this state.”

To ensure mass fraud will never take place in a U.S. election again, the Trump administration promised to implement citizen confirmation, so illegal aliens will not interfere in future elections. On numerous occasions, the President warned Americans of the high risk of corruption if citizen confirmation or voter ID is not implemented.

It would have been nice to have these rules in place before this election.

RNC files GA lawsuit for poll watcher access

Sara CarterThe Republican National Committee filed a new lawsuit Tuesday in Georgia to ensure that election laws are “properly followed” during the state’s two January 5 runoff elections for the U.S. Senate, specifically demanding access for Republican poll watchers and more restrictions surrounding the use of ballot drop boxes, Fox News reports exclusively.

Sadly, whatever the court orders, the people on the ground are the ones who are going to have to enforce it. It's good the RNC is thinking ahead, though.

Judge throws out MA election case

Boston HeraldA federal judge laid into five failed Massachusetts Republican state and federal candidates who sued the state this week in hopes of potentially throwing out millions of ballots cast in the Nov. 3 election or re-doing the vote entirely over their claims that pandemic-related changes to voting rules were “unconstitutional.”

“The election happened over a month ago,” U.S. District Court Judge Allison D. Burroughs said during a telephonic status hearing Tuesday afternoon. “And you’re asking me to invalidate an entire election that just happened, which just strikes me as — it’s not just unfair to me and the courts and the attorney general’s office and too late and misplaced, but just terribly unfair to all the people that showed up to vote in this election in the middle of a pandemic in order to make their voices heard.”

You know what else is terribly unfair? To let fraud steal an election from all those people that showed up to vote in this election in the middle of a pandemic and give it to those "people" who voted by mail from the comfort of their coffins.

Trump campaign appeals another PA case to the state Supreme Court

NewsmaxPresident Donald Trump's campaign continues to press lawsuits over Pennsylvania's election, appealing another case it lost to the state Supreme Court, this time over fewer than 2,000 ballots in a suburban Philadelphia county.

Meanwhile, nine state Republican lawmakers filed another lawsuit in state courts Monday, citing perceived irregularities or complaints over mail-in voting procedures, and asking the court to prevent Pennsylvania from casting its electoral votes for President-elect Joe Biden. The Electoral College meets Dec. 14.

The result at the state SC is inevitable, but there will also be an inevitable appeal.

Supreme Court rejects PA lawsuit

Just The NewsThe Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a Pennsylvania GOP effort to halt the certification of the 2020 presidential election in that state, dealing a potentially fatal blow to efforts by Republicans to bring before the high court a constitutional argument regarding mail-in voting there.

In the one-page, one-paragraph decision, the court stipulated that the plaintiffs' "application for injunctive relief" on the matter "is denied."

At first glance, this is pretty devastating news for Trump's chances. The PA case was, as far as I know, the best shot because the court had previously opined on the issue and even issued orders to segregate ballots. But it appears they are not interested in getting involved, even to the minimal extent necessary to decertify an election and ask the state legislature to decide.

It's hard not to take that as the Supreme Court signaling that it's not interested in this issue at all. However, the denial was for a request for emergency injunctive relief. It is possible that a normal appeal will be filed, on a normal schedule, and the Supreme Court may take that. However, that seems like a bad bet given how they disposed of this case.

It is worth noting that there are other cases. Most prominent is the recently filed Texas case, suing the usual list of swing states for changing their rules at the last minute. It is possible the SC dropped the PA case in order to take up a better one, perhaps the Texas one. But that seems unlikely.

It looks to me like the Supreme Court blinked.

A better lawsuit filed in GA

National Review Still, we should take note that the lawsuit the president and his campaign filed in Georgia state court on Friday is, on its face, the best legal challenge mustered so far.

In the Peach State, the campaign is represented by different counsel than it has been elsewhere. The 64-page complaint is a linear, cogently presented description of numerous election-law violations, apparently based on hard data. If true, the allegations would potentially disqualify nearly 150,000 illegal votes in a state that Biden won by only 12,000.

Courts dismiss Powell's Krakensuits

NewsmaxFederal judges in Michigan and Georgia on Monday rejected ex-Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell’s long-shot attempt to decertify the states’ election results, ruling her claims of a vast election-fraud conspiracy were made too late and lack hard evidence.

Notice that neither of those responses address the merits of the case. Powell's suits were filed as fast as reasonably possible, and to claim they were nonetheless filed too late is to basically deny all possible relief from the courts to election fraud. Hard evidence too takes time to gather, and is controlled by partisan actors. It may take discovery and court orders to obtain. Further, "You took too long" and "You don't have enough evidence" are very close to inherently contradictory. I suspect these cases will get appealed rapidly.

Challenges by Schnorak were ignored. “They refused to put challenges in the electronic log.”

GA State Senator William Ligon(December 5, 2020) | Saturday, Sen. William Ligon (R – Brunswick), Sen. Greg Dolezal (R – Cumming), Sen. Brandon Beach (R – Alpharetta) and Sen. Burt Jones (R – Jackson) drafted a Petition calling for and convening a Special Session.

This Petition comes after the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee was inundated with affidavits, signed under penalty of perjury, from citizens all over the state who testified to blatant election fraud and many violations of the law that have taken place during the 2020 General Election as well as during the follow-up recounts.

Give the sheer number and variety of claims, along with the evidence backing them up, I think it would be dereliction of duty to refuse to examine all possibilities. That said, the time for legislative action is very short.

You Must Be Alive to Vote Act

The BlazeA Republican congressman made a stand against dead people voting in elections and introduced a bill that requires Americans to be alive in order to cast ballots. Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) proposed the You Must Be Alive to Vote Act last week.

"The right to vote is one of the most vital pillars of our democracy, the foundations of which are election integrity and confidence in our democratic processes," Babin said. "The ease with which someone is able to steal the ballot of a deceased person and cast an illegitimate vote should disturb, alarm, and outrage every American citizen, no matter what side of the aisle they sit on. To protect our democratic process and Americans' faith in our elections, we must ensure that deceased individuals are not allowed to remain on state voter rolls."

"My bill will prevent any funds from the U.S. Departments of Transportation or Education, with the exception of those going toward law enforcement agency grants, from going to counties of any state that do not annually check their voter lists against the Social Security Administration's most recent death records in order to purge them of any individuals found to be deceased," Babin declared. "All elected officials, from your local city council member to your U.S. President, have an obligation to obey the law and prevent fraud in our elections, and Congress should not be awarding taxpayer dollars to any counties or states that refuse to do the job they swore to do."

It will never pass... the dead are a core Democratic constituency.

Texas files election lawsuit with Supreme Court directly

BreitbartOn Monday, just before midnight, the State of Texas filed a lawsuit that is far more important than all of the others surrounding the presidential election of November 3rd.

Texas brought a suit against four states that did something they cannot do: they violated the U.S. Constitution in their conduct of the presidential election. And this violation occurred regardless of the amount of election fraud that may have resulted. The four defendant states are Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

Texas filed the suit directly in the Supreme Court. Article III of the Constitution lists a small number of categories of cases in which the Supreme Court has “original jurisdiction.” One of those categories concerns “Controversies between two or more states.” Texas’s suit is exactly that. The Supreme Court has opined in the past that it may decline to accept such cases, at its discretion. But it is incumbent upon the high court to take this case, especially when it presents a such a cut-and-dried question of constitutional law, and when it could indirectly decide who is sworn in as President on January 20, 2021.

The Texas suit is clear, and it presents a compelling case. The four offending states each violated the U.S. Constitution in two ways.

Reading the tea leaves

Meaning In HistoryI think what we're seeing is that there is at least a majority of five justices on the SCOTUS who are very concerned about the implications of allowing a fraudulent election to be certified. That is especially so given that the party that would "win" this fraudulent election is one that has been outspoken in its willingness to utterly transform our constitutional order--by whatever means work for them. Recall, that Pelosi has more than once asserted a primacy of the House over the rest of government. So, with all that in mind, the five justices may be resolved to act to the extent that they're able to do so. That's an important proviso because the deadlines are very short. But they will hopefully speak.

Read the whole thing for analysis of Alito's movement of the deadline for arguments in PA's case to December 8th.

The interesting point here is that PA is not enough. Even if the court takes some action in the PA case to block certification, it won't matter unless the court thinks it is likely to take up other cases regarding the election in other states (at least two others besides PA).

We may be able to see the Supreme Court act in a big way. If they are going to act before the certification deadline, we'll find out December 8th... today.

The committee chairman, State Rep. Ron Tusler, a Republican, "will provide a report of his findings to the committee members and invite speakers to testify before the committee."

December 11th is an awkward date; after the Dec 8th safe-harbor date for electors, but before the actual Dec 14th meeting. How important those dates are in this case is somewhat of an open question,since they are set by statute rather than the Constitution.

Election worker in suspect GA vote counting video is Dem campaign spokesman

Gateway PunditWe’ve identified Ralph Jones, Sr. as the supervisor running the late night ballot counts in Atlanta in secret after sending all Republicans home from the arena.

And that’s actually Ralph in the red shirt right there and he’s the one who told me to stay back and continue to work.”

Ralph Jones Jr, a spokesman for Democratic US Senate candidate Raphael Warnock’s campaign, praised Abrams’ contribution to Democratic gains in Georgia, saying she “helped register hundreds of thousands of new voters, many of whom are young people of colour, and the turnout in this election has already blown past expectations”.

If he's been a spokesman for a campaign, he shouldn't be allowed to participate in the counting process (except as a poll watcher), much less be in an evident position of authority over it.

To be a suspect, you need to have means, motive, and opportunity.

We have established the means: access to the ballot counting machinery and a supply of votes.

We have established the motive: partisan Democrat who has been an official campaign spokesman.

We have established the opportunity: 2 hours of unobserved counting of ballots. And in addition, we have established that the opportunity was created through deception.

The more we look at this the sketchier it gets.

Giuliani points to three states that could flip the race

NewsmaxPresident Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that legislatures in three states that Trump lost could wind up deciding who votes in the Electoral College — likely sending the election issue to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Giuliani says he believes the legislative bodies in Georgia, Michigan and Arizona are poised to take votes on electors.

I'm not sure "poised" is quite the right word. But those three states constitute 43 electoral votes. If they follow through before the deadline, things will get dicey.

The way I see it, everyone is taking small steps towards a line in the sand, while looking at everyone else and waiting for the first entity to actually cross it. Maybe it will be a court ruling, maybe it will be a state legislator, maybe it will be no one at all. But the first entity to cross that line is the hardest. Once the first one flips, a domino effect is likely.

But time remains tight.

Black box voting

Black Box VotingThis report summarizes the results of our review of the GEMS election management system, which counts approximately 25 percent of all votes in the United States. The results of this study demonstrate that a fractional vote feature is embedded in each GEMS application which can be used to invisibly, yet radically, alter election outcomes by pre-setting desired vote percentages to redistribute votes. This tampering is not visible to election observers, even if they are standing in the room and watching the computer. Use of the decimalized vote feature is unlikely to be detected by auditing or canvass procedures, and can be applied across large jurisdictions in less than 60 seconds.

During Clinton’s campaign, according to an email chain released by WikiLeaks, Kirkland & Ellis LLP partner Kamran S. Bajwa met with John Podesta while offering “anything” to help defeat Donald Trump.

Podesta, at the time, was chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.

Partisan activism is a very bad look for a voting machine company.

Arizona House speaker won't call for special session

Behind the BlackRusty Bowers, Arizona Republican House Speaker, has now categorically declared that he “cannot and will not” recall the legislature to review the election results and choose electors based on that, despite the Constitution’s clear language that gives the state legislature that full power.

An audit isn't helpful if you can't do anything with the results. However, if the audit finds evidence, minds may be changed...

If you live in Arizona, there are phone numbers to call at the link. Demand that your legislature assign electors to Trump because of the obvious fraud.

MI SecState trying to delete election data

The Epoch TimesThe Michigan GOP on Friday raised concerns about a memo sent by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson that “is pushing for the mass deletion of election data,” although a spokesperson for the secretary’s office later said the process is routine.

The GOP said Benson’s office told clerks in Michigan counties to “delete Electronic Poll Book software and associated files” amid calls to audit the election while flagging it was concerning.

Gosh you're in a real hurry to destroy the evidence, aren't you?

Judge orders forensic review of 22 Dominion voting machines in Michigan?

The Epoch TimesA judge in Antrim County, Michigan, has authorized a forensic audit of 22 Dominion Voting Systems machines, according to Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

“BIG WIN FOR HONEST ELECTIONS,” the former New York City Mayor wrote on Twitter on Dec. 4. “This is where the untrustworthy Dominion machine flipped 6,000 votes from Trump to Biden. Spiking of votes by Dominion happened all over the state.”

It will be very interesting to see what they find.

Alito moves PA election lawsuit deadline up

ZerohedgeSupreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has made a critical decision which may signal that court's willingness to hear a controversial case attempting to flip Pennsylvania's 2020 election results.

The deadline change suggests a SC decision, if it happens swiftly, may take place on the statutory deadline of December 8th.

It's hard to read tea leaves as to the outcome here, but it does seem positive as it keeps open the possibility that the court will take action within the statutory deadline.

If the court does act, blocking PA votes alone would not change the outcome. However, if GA is also blocked, Biden would be left with 270, and losing any other state would put him below that number.

I don't know if there are any other cases that are ripe for SC action, but there are several others that involve last-minute election law changes.

NV election machines had their totals changed overnight

Zerohedge“What they would do is they would log these disks in and out. Good practice. And the disks had a serial number on them. And numerous times that disk would be logged out with one vote total on it and logged back in the next morning during the early vote period with a different number on it. Sometimes more, sometimes less,” Binnall said.

“What that means is that literally in the dead of night, votes were appearing, and books are disappearing on these machines.”

The whole point of recording the counts is to prevent this from happening. What was done to investigate this and prevent those clearly tampered totals from being used?

How to fix the electronic vote fraud problem

American GreatnessStarting in the first quarter of 2021, regardless of what the corrupt incompetents at the RNC do—or more likely, don’t do—we should begin lawfare to dismantle the electoral systems the Left has put in place. We should write model legislation for the various states with Republican majorities to enact, among other things, outlawing EVMs, outlawing universal mail-in ballots, and forcing the cleaning of voter rolls.

We only have ourselves to blame for not putting into practice these methods that neighboring developed countries have used for years. Let’s not look back in four years and realize we compounded our mistakes by doing nothing.

Paper ballots would be a good start.

GA officials threaten grave consequences if they cannot wipe election machines

The Epoch TimesGeorgia officials on Thursday asked a judge to lift an order that is blocking officials from altering information in voting machines in three counties, arguing the machines are needed to prepare for the upcoming Senate runoff elections.

Janine Eveler, director of the Cobb County Elections Department, said the agency is already executing its plan for the upcoming runoffs. Preparation of voting machines, including clearing memory cards, started before order, she said.

The order is holding up testing of machines that will be required for in-person voting on Election Day, according to Eveler. The first step in the testing process is to clear memory cards of data from the Nov. 3 election and create cards with new data, which takes at least two-and-a-half days in total.

Memory cards are cheap. There is absolutely no reason not to preserve those used in an election for at least several years so that the data can be examined. the hurry here is entirely unseemly and unnecessary. Just buy new memory cards, allow the machines to be examined and released. There's no need to wipe anything. Further, I believe there is a federal law that requires election data to be preserved even aside from this order.

Biden effort in Nevada offered money and gifts to vote

Washington ExaminerKey Native American leaders working with the Biden campaign offered tribal members and associates Visa gift cards, jewelry, and other “swag” to vote in the presidential election, according to several videos being used by the Trump campaign’s effort to challenge Nevada’s vote.

In one long video, officials from the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony are shown offering a raffle for gift cards in values of $25, $100, $250, and $500 to those who can prove they voted.

Other gifts for voting include bracelets, necklaces, earrings, T-shirts, and masks.

“If you come here to vote or if you voted already, RSIC is having a raffle,” said RSIC spokeswoman Bethany Sam in one of the videos.

The case was dismissed by the court.

Biden's numbers in PA are simply unbelievable

The BlazeHere are the facts. We know that 2.6 million mail-in ballots have been counted in the Pennsylvania election returns, in addition to nearly 4.2 million Election Day votes. We also know from the secretary of state that Trump won Election Day votes, 2.7 million to 1.4 million. But we are to believe that Biden won 76% of mail-in ballots.

Yes, mail-ins overwhelmingly skewed Democrat, like Election Day votes skewed Republican, but they were not all from Democrats. We know that 64.7% of those votes were from registered Democrats, 23.7% from Republicans, and 11.6% from nonpartisan or other party voters.

What does this mean in simple arithmetic? My friend (who goes by screen name Gummi Bear on Twitter) crunched the numbers and showed that had Biden won 95% of returned Democrat mail-in votes, 21% of returned Republican votes, and 80% of returned independent votes, he would still have come up short of his margin of victory reported in the unofficial tally.

Read the whole thing. It compares Biden/Trump mail in numbers to in-person numbers, primary numbers, down-ballot numbers. None of them make any sense. Biden did not win.

Biden vote spike corresponds to unusual ballot counting video

PJMedia“This spike is mathematically impossible without cheating, and it coincidently falls within the same timeline that the new ballots were captured,” claims Bernard Kerik, the former NYPD commissioner who is helping the Trump campaign collect evidence of voter fraud.

So what's going on in this viral Georgia vote counting video?

What seems clear: poll observers and some workers were told to go home; after they left, counting resumed with ballots pulled from underneath a table in what has been described as "suitcases". Some officials claim this was all normal and that the poll watchers being told to go home because counting had stopped was a miscommunication. Others, including the Trump legal team, point to a spike in Biden ballots that registered at the same time.

So what's really going on?

GA SecState investigating early departure of poll monitors

Just The News"We have launched an investigation into why the monitors from the political parties left before scanning ended," Jones said. "While it was their right to leave early, we want to make certain they were not misled into thinking scanning had stopped for the night when it had not."

An interesting question would be whether poll watchers from both parties are optional or required. If optional, this could be written off as an oops (in theory; other evidence also suggests fraud). But if poll watchers are required, the counters should have stopped on their own initiative until watchers could return.

Having a single state employee monitoring should not be sufficient.

Audit of GA voting machines has ties to Dominion, SecState did not disclose

Epoch TimesThe firm hired by Georgia’s secretary of state to conduct an “audit” of Dominion Voting Systems technology used during the 2020 elections is the same one that previously certified the Dominion systems and also approved a last-minute system-wide software change just weeks before the election.

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger failed to disclose that the company, Pro V&V, had a preexisting relationship with Dominion that dated back years, in his Nov. 17 statement announcing the results of the audit.

Raffensperger also failed to disclose that Dominion had used technical conclusions from Pro V&V in a pre-election Georgia lawsuit that questioned the reliability of Dominion’s systems during a last-minute software fix before the Nov. 3 election. The testing from Pro V&V had been characterized as “superficial” and “cursory testing” by an expert cited in court documents.

It sure does seem like Raffensperger has something to hide here.

New GA lawsuit over presidential election results

NewsmaxPresident Donald Trump has filed suit in Georgia claiming the election process was filled with “significant systemic misconduct, fraud and other irregularities” resulting in “many thousands of illegal votes” being cast and counted.

The suit was filed in Georgia on Friday on behalf of Trump and David Shafer, a presidential elector pledged to the president. The suit named Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and a slew of local elections officials.

It is asking the court to prevent certification of the results and order a new presidential election.

The main focus of this suit is on absentee ballots. While it was filed shortly after the video of suspicious activity at the counting center was shown, it does not appear linked to the activity in the video.

2400 Californians voted in Nevada?

California GlobeAccording to the Election Integrity Project, Nevada, more than 2,400 persons who are registered to vote in Nevada, subsequently registered in California, but voted in Nevada’s November 3 election.

EIPNv had previously reported 1,411 such voters. An expanded analysis, matching mailing addresses and phone numbers, found approximately 1,000 more suspect voters. To lawfully vote in Nevada, one must continuously reside in the state and one’s county for 30 days and one’s precinct 10 days preceding Election Day [NRS 293.485].

Federal law allows persons to vote in their old state if they have moved within 30 days of the election. These findings will be submitted to the Secretaries of State in both Nevada and California.

Evidence of illegal votes in Georgia

Gateway PunditOne of many volunteer groups, a Georgia-based voter data analytics firm says it has found that about 40,000 illegal votes were cast in Georgia in the November 3 general election. Mark Davis, President of Data Productions, Inc. and considered an expert in five court cases concerning election disputes found 40,239 people who moved from one county to another more than 30 days before the election and voted in their old county, which is illegal according to Georgia law. Those 40,239 people who voted failed to register their new address in time to vote in their new county, and according to the law they cannot vote in either county until they do.

40,239 illegal votes are more than triple the size of the current margins in the Presidential race as Joe Biden is listed as being approximately 12,000 votes ahead of President Donald Trump.

The analysis also found that 267,255 people notified the USPS that they moved outside the state of Georgia, which means they are no longer eligible to vote in the state, yet, 14,980 of those people allegedly voted in the 2020 election in Georgia, 100 percent of them illegally.

One problem with this is that it doesn't necessarily show who those votes were for, so we can't know the effect of removing them unless we can identify and remove those specific ballots.

More backdated ballots

Gateway PunditNew election fraud whistleblowers came forward on Tuesday, including a postal subcontractor who was told that over 100,000 ballots in Wisconsin were gathered the day after election day and backdated so that they would still be counted.

The new information was made public at a press conference with multiple whistleblowers by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, a national constitutional litigation organization.

Postal subcontractor Nathan Pease says that he was told by two separate postal workers on two separate occasions that the USPS in Wisconsin was gathering over 100,000 ballots on the morning of November 4 to backdate the ballots so that the ballots would be counted even if they arrived after the statutory deadline.

“Mr. Pease’s sworn statement coincides in time with a dramatic ballot dump on the morning of November 5 which heavily favored Mr. Biden and which has caused significant controversy within the expert community regarding the statistical probability of the late insertion of tens of thousands of ballots in favor of a single candidate on the morning after the election,” Amistad Project said in a statement.

A short course in rules of evidence

SpectatorOver the past weeks we have been treated to a veritable cavalcade of misinformation from the pack of braying hyenas in the press — who risibly misname themselves journalists — to the effect that: (a) there has been “no evidence” yet offered by Team Trump; (b) that there has been “no proof” offered by TT; (c) that all TT’s accusations are baseless.

The three speakers at Nov. 19’s press conference — Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, all former prosecutors with ample trial experience — tried to explain that affidavits — memorialized statements made by eyewitnesses and experts who swear to their contents under penalty of perjury — are evidence; that documents are evidence; that audit trails can show how software flipped hundreds of thousands of votes; that avalanches of unsigned mail-in ballots with machine-perfect identical markings, without a single vote for Trump, and not a single vote for down-ballot federal or state candidates, is essentially a zero-probability event. Yet the press jackals unleashed withering scorn disguised as questions — a tactic even Gov. Cuomo now publicly deplores — that ignored those apt legal lessons.

Useful, if you think sworn affidavits and expert witnesses is not evidence.

Yes, you read that correctly. That would equate to Joe Biden bagging 99.4% of that enormous chunk of votes. That one batch alone would have flipped the state to Biden.

The lawsuit claims that officials illegally counted or threw out no fewer than 508,016 ballots, far more than Joe Biden’s 154,000-vote margin over Donald Trump.

“State and local officials brazenly violated election laws in order to advance a partisan political agenda,” Phil Kline, director of The Amistad Project, said in a statement. “The pattern of lawlessness was so pervasive and widespread that it deprived the people of Michigan of a free and fair election, throwing the integrity of the entire process into question.”

There are a lot of suits out there.

More evidence of fraud in Georgia

Derek Somerville I’ve personally spent the last several days painstakingly analyzing 580,226 registered Georgia voters from current state-provided voter rolls who submitted a US Postal Service Mail Forwarding Change of Address request at least 30 days PRIOR TO the November 3rd election.

FACT: at least 57,793 Georgia voters cast their vote in a county that is DIFFERENT than where they previously instructed the USPS to forward their mail.

FACT: 43,507 (75%) of these individuals DID NOT vote in person on election day.

FACT: 17,514 of these voters asked the USPS to forward their mail OUT OF STATE to non-APO/DPO/FPO military addresses. 89% are over the age of 25 and likely not college students.

It’s been a few years, but most of you know I’m a former FBI Special Agent. Prior to that I worked in the US intelligence community. I’m a trained federal investigator who was assigned to Public Corruption cases. There are others more experienced than me, but this if far from my first rodeo.

Trump campaign plans to show more evidence at Nevada court hearing

Washington ExaminerThe Trump campaign on Wednesday unveiled a tranche of information it plans to present to a Nevada state court Thursday that suggests there were thousands of fraudulent votes cast — possibly enough to overturn Joe Biden’s win there by 33,569 votes.

Officials said that among the evidence and expert testimony to be presented in Carson City are indications that over 1,500 ballots were cast by dead voters, that 42,248 people voted “multiple times,” data on a huge spike in incomplete voter registrations, and home addresses in temporary RV camps and casinos.

They also plan to present polling that 1% of Nevada voters shown to have voted never did and 2% of those shown to have voted by mail never got a ballot.

Nevada remains in play.

And when I pulled out my [Republican] tag, she looked at me and she was like, ‘You’re on the wrong side.'”

“There are multiple key witnesses who are whistleblowers with matching, independent stories supporting these issues, who USPS is trying to obstruct from testifying,” the Nevada GOP notes.

Audits in Arizona, Nevada could swing both states

Just The NewsAn audit of more than 1,400 mail-in ballots in Nevada indicates that 2% of them were cast on behalf of voters who never received a ballot in the mail, and 1% were cast on behalf of voters who say they did not vote in the election at all.

The audit, which was conducted by Baselice and Associates for the Trump campaign's legal team in Nevada, suggests that the above mentioned 3% of voters whose identities matched the names on the ballots they inspected were not actually the ones who cast the ballots.

2-3% of absentee votes doesn't sound like much, but that's enough to swing the race when you combine it with out of state voters (9,000) and just a few more.

Meanwhile, in Arizona, a similar audit of 100 ballots found 2 errors, resulting in a 3% change from Trump to Biden. Again, extrapolated, that's enough to change the result. The state granted an audit of 2,500 votes to see if the problem remained in a larger sample.

Former Acting AG Whitaker criticizes Barr as missing in action on election fraud

''On the one hand, I would agree that they don’t announce when they’re doing investigations, or tell us about the progress of those investigations, but at the same time, I found the [attorney] general's comments concerning. And I was pleased when they walked back a lot of those, suggesting that there are ongoing investigations and while there is no evidence of truly systemic overturning election changes, that actually it sounds like they’re still doing the investigation.''

Barr probably has a lot of sophisticated reasons and excuses for not seeing evidence. Some of them may even be valid. But coming out and commenting on the ongoing investigation may be a mistake, and trusting AP not to twist your words in a hit piece definitely is.

A second rule adopted allows counties to continue to begin processing absentee ballots two weeks before Election Day – but now also mandates them to start processing them no later than a week and one day ahead of the election. But as per Georgia law, none of the ballots would be tabulated and counted until the polls close on Jan. 5.

... because it went so well last time.

Michigan votes for Kanye given to Biden

Gateway PunditDemocrat Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson quietly issued rules this past summer that any “unapproved write-in” should have their votes CANCELLED.

Witnesses describe THOUSANDS of Kanye votes that were GIVEN TO BIDEN due to this “Benson rule.”

If someone voted straight-ticket Democrat and wrote in Kanye, since he was an “unapproved write-in candidate” according to the Secretary of State, they were instructed to remove Kanye’s vote and instead give that vote to Joe Biden, a 77 year old white man.

Sounds very fishy to me. The very nature of a write-in candidate is that they should not need to be "approved". And if the vote for Kanye is invalid for that reason, it should not go to Biden, but count as no ballot in that race.

4 suspicious data dumps in key states

PJMediaOn Sunday afternoon, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) shared an unsettling analysis of the 2020 election results that raises serious questions about statistical anomalies and four particularly suspicious “data dumps” in the key swing states of Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

“Interesting . . . Trump margin of ‘defeat’ in 4 states occurred in 4 data dumps between 1:34-6:31 AM. Statistical anomaly? Fraud? Look at the evidence and decide for yourself,” Paul tweeted.

Whistleblower email claims votes added

Epoch TimesAn alleged anonymous whistleblower’s email that was provided to a cybersecurity expert in testimony during an Arizona GOP state Senate meeting claimed that 35,000 fraudulent votes were given to each of the Democratic candidates in Pima County, Arizona.

A copy of the purported email was displayed during the event on Monday, as cited by retired Army Col. Phil Waldron. Waldron, a cybersecurity expert, claimed that the information was from a Pima County tech support provider, although he did not say in what capacity. The event was held by some Republican members of the Arizona State Legislature, which also included statements from President Donald Trump’s lawyers.

“There were approximately 35,000 fraud votes added to each Democratic candidate’s vote totals,” he said, adding that the number was “embedded in the vote totals.” The same purported whistleblower then asserted that he went to a meeting with Democratic Party officials in Pima County on Sept. 10 that included a presentation about the embedded votes, adding that no phones or video recording devices were allowed, said Waldron.

Credibility of the email is questionable, since it was sent anonymously. But it's possible DOJ knows more, and the election data appears to confirm the basic claim.

Vote fraud in California

NoqreportThe consolation prize for President Trump in the Golden State was that he won 5.5 million votes in 2020, a million plus more than four years ago. But did Joe Biden really top 11 million ballots as officially reported? One experienced programmer and information security expert thinks the answer is likely not. In fact, the Democratic candidate may not have even topped 10 million.

Doing a deep dive analysis of the election live-feed used by the New York Times, the researcher, with two decades of experience looking for data anomalies, estimated that at least 1.7 million votes for Joe Biden were statistically suspicious and likely the result of electronic fraud, he told in an exclusive interview.

I wonder why they needed fraud in CA, it seems pretty solidly leftist. But maybe fraud is how they keep it that way?

Trump files new election lawsuit in Wisconsin alleging 200K illegal ballots

PJMediaOn Tuesday, President Donald Trump and his campaign filed an explosive lawsuit claiming that Wisconsin officials included 221,323 illegal votes in the presidential election recount and asking the Wisconsin Supreme Court to order Gov. Tony Evers (D-Wisc.) to rescind certification of the state’s election results until any illegal votes can be excluded from the count.

“The people of Wisconsin deserve election processes with uniform enforcement of the law, plain and simple. During the recount in Dane and Milwaukee counties, we know with absolute certainty illegal ballots have unduly influenced the state’s election results,” Jim Troupis, a Trump campaign lawyer, said in a statement. “Wisconsin cannot allow the over three million legal ballots to be eroded by even a single illegal ballot.

”The lawsuit cites four cases of “clear evidence of unlawfulness, such as illegally altering absentee ballot envelopes, counting ballots that had no required application, overlooking unlawful claims of indefinite confinement, and holding illegal voting events called Democracy in the Park.”

So far, these have not done well in the courts, but the violations of the election law seem clear. Who will enforce those laws?

Training for fraud

Gateway PunditAt both trainings, the instructors were proudly telling official Detroit poll workers how to prevent Republican poll challengers from seeing ballots so they could not inspect them, and could not perform their legal duties to prevent voter fraud.
This training also included instruction to accept any printout to verify identity so that someone could vote, a process that he said lacked any security.
Detroit election security was such a joke, according to de Angeli, the tabulator passwords were taped on the machines and were simply the election date: 11032020. “I assume that was the password on all machines citywide.” In the trainings, he noted that it was obvious that these had been the password used for YEARS. The machines also required a ‘dongle’, an insertable device, along with the password to operate the machines but de Angeli said he felt the level of election security was a JOKE.
He was instructed to let people vote twice with duplicate entries in the voter.

This is called evidence.

About that voter fraud that doesn't exist...

JSOnlineIn an election decided in Wisconsin by about 20,000 votes, President Donald Trump wants to throw out more than 200,000 ballots.

The Trump campaign is seeking to disqualify 238,420 ballots cast during the Nov. 3 election between Dane and Milwaukee counties, according to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel analysis — an effort that has been unsuccessful so far as part of recounts in both counties but could end up in court.

Milwaukee County's recount concluded Friday, with Democrat Joe Biden increasing his net margin of victory over Trump by 132 votes out of nearly 460,000 cast. The Dane County recount is expected to conclude Sunday.

The ballots Trump is seeking to disqualify affect voters who cast absentee ballots in person, known as early voting, and residents who identify themselves as "indefinitely confined," allowing them to vote absentee without meeting the state photo ID requirements.

Do we have elections that follow the laws? Or do the officials have license to change them however they want to, regardless of what the law says?

Do we have a republic? And can we keep it?

Finding more ballots

Washington ExaminerA New York congressional race came down to a judge personally reviewing individual spoiled ballots, resulting in the Democratic incumbent erasing his nearly 30,000-vote deficit to take a 13-vote lead and declaring victory.

“In NY-22, the Democrat incumbent was trailing by almost 30K on election night,” said Hot Air editor Jazz Shaw on Twitter. “The mail-in ballots got him close. Then a Democrat judge from Syracuse ruled he would personally ‘review’ all of the spoiled ballots that had been rejected. Guess what happened next.”

“The judge miraculously ‘found’ enough ballots that he felt were okay and the incumbent now ‘leads’ by 13 votes,” Shaw continued.

This sort of thing is open fraud.

Dominion IT contractor testifies

Gateway PunditBallots are supposed to drop into a sealed box after being scanned through the tabulating machine, however Melissa Carone said the ballots were accessible to the election worker after being scanned through the machine. She said the boxes that were supposed to receive the scanned ballots were moved to another part of the room and used to block poll observers.

Melissa Carone also said one of the Dominion workers disappeared to a “warehouse” for several hours right before a big data dump for Joe Biden.

Fulton County recount delayed due to server crash

Gateway PunditThe recount in Georgia’s Fulton County has been delayed due to the Dominion Voting Systems mobile server crashing on Sunday evening.

Officials in the county, which includes Atlanta, said that the server was newly purchased.

“Technicians from Dominion have been dispatched to resolve the issue,” Fulton County officials said in a statement obtained by local station WXIA-TV. “The Georgia Secretary of State’s office has also been alerted to the issue and is aware of efforts to resolve the problem.”

One possible reason for servers to crash is if you are running untested, unauthorized code on them. Like you would have to do if you were a hacker trying to use them to steal an election.

Occupy Georgia state capital and protest outside GA SecState's house

Michael CoudreyAfter the Secretary of State ordered the voting machines to be wiped in a blatant destruction of evidence, coalition groups plan to OCCUPY THE STATE CAPITOL in Georgia on Monday November 30 at 12pm.

They also plan to protest outside the Sec. of States house at 6pm.

There is absolutely no reason to wipe the machines now. Image them and preserve the images, and either seek other options for the runoff, or use simple paper ballots counted by hand.

Why is Raffenberger in such a hurry to destroy the evidence?

I'd recommend against protesting at someone's house. But when the police and the courts will not intervene to stop the destruction of evidence, options are limited. And people are really, really angry about this.

Trump to file new lawsuit after Wisconsin recount

Daily CallerPresident Donald Trump’s campaign will make a new legal challenge in Wisconsin after the state finishes its recount this week, Trump announced Saturday.

Biden took the state by more than 20,000 votes, a lead the recount is unlikely to overturn. Trump says his campaign will seek to remove individuals they say voted illegally, an argument they’ve made unsuccessfully in several other states.

State election laws differ and have different procedures and timing.

More importantly, Trump and his lawyers should have had a lot more time to prepare this one, including the results of possible behind he scenes intelligence and law enforcement activity.

Fake ballots?

Gateway Pundit"On October 21, he arrived at Bethpage where he saw 24 gaylords (large cardboard containers used by USPS) and was told they contained mail-in ballots. He saw 24 gaylords containing bulk mail bins filled with identically-sized ballot envelopes stacked crosswise, which likely contained 144,000-288,000 ballots or more,” Amistad said. “He could see it contained handwritten return addresses and one was even marked Certified Mail, prompting the expediter to remark that the person must have really wanted the ballot to get to its destination. Both of these observations revealed the ballots had already been completed and were being returned to be counted.”

Amistad continued on to explain that “Mr. Morgan got to Harrisburg at 9:15 a.m., ballots in tow, but was forced to sit in the USPS yard until 3:00 p.m. When he went inside to speak with someone because his hours were about to expire, a self- identified ‘transportation supervisor’ made himself known and instructed Jesse to drive the whole load to Lancaster without unloading the portion intended for Harrisburg. The ‘transportation supervisor’ would not provide him with a written slip, saying he would need to unload in Harrisburg in order to receive a slip. Morgan drove to Lancaster under orders from the Harrisburg postal supervisor, unhooked the trailer in the normal place, parked his tractor in the normal place, and went home.”

The next day, his trailer, the only trailer he ever used on his Bethpage route, was gone.

Barr says no evidence of large-scale fraud "to date"

Associated PressAttorney General William Barr said Tuesday the Justice Department has not uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud that would change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Barr said U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been working to follow up specific complaints and information they’ve received, but they’ve uncovered no evidence that would change the outcome of the election.

To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr told the AP.

Barr didn’t name Powell specifically but said: “There’s been one assertion that would be systemic fraud and that would be the claim that machines were programmed essentially to skew the election results. And the DHS and DOJ have looked into that, and so far, we haven’t seen anything to substantiate that,” Barr said.

It is interesting that Flynn is willing to appear on the show with, and even be introduced by, McInerney. It seems as if that decision may lend credit to the Hammer and Scorecard theory.

Flynn says that he sees a clear path to victory and is confident Trump won with 350-400 electoral votes (after removing fraudulent ones, of course).

Flynn is lending his credibility to the Dominion voting system issue. He says "We have evidence of previous elections where this happened as well." Who's we?

McInerney identifies the Kraken as a nickname for the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion. He claims the server seizure in Frankfurt and says he has heard there were actually people killed in that operation. Significant news, if true. I trust Flynn more than McInerney alone.

Arizona to claw back electoral votes?

The Epoch TimesAt a public hearing in Arizona with select members of the state legislature and members of President Donald Trump’s legal team, lawmakers called for their colleagues to support an upcoming resolution that would delay the release of the state’s Electoral College votes.

Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem told reporters during the Nov. 30 hearing that they hope to have a resolution “within the next 24 to 48 hours.” The state holds 11 Electoral College votes.

“We are clawing our Electoral College votes back, we will not release them,” Finchem said. “That’s what I’m calling on our colleagues in both the House and Senate to do—exercise our plenary authority under the U.S. Constitution.

“There is a legal brief out there that says we are not tethered to state statute when it comes to this one question.”

If they can get such a resolution through both chambers, it would be a very good start on the other states. But I won't be celebrating until it is passed.

Burden of proof and doctrine of spoilation

Meaning in HistoryThis is where a significant twist enters into play. What would be compelling counter evidence? Evidence that would show Trump's allegations are incorrect? Well, in election cases paper trails and electronic trails are supposed to be generated and retained--precisely as evidence for use in settling disputes. All the Dems need is to present that evidence.

The twist is that so far the Dems, who control the elections in the disputed locales, are refusing to produce that evidence. Worse, there are allegations that they are destroying that evidence. The law has a way of dealing with destruction of evidence. In a criminal case, destruction of evidence can lead to obstruction charges. In a civil case, that's handled by what's called the "doctrine" of spoliation. This doctrine could lead to a presumption that the evidence destroyed by the defendant would have been favorable to the plaintiff. In that case the burden of proof for the Dems would be essentially insurmountable--thus Trump's tweet. Powell and others are, in fact, alleging exactly this--that evidence has been and is being destroyed.

This is generally worth reading the whole thing, but the part I found most interesting is above. If the Democrats destroy the evidence of their fraud by doing things such as discarding ballot envelopes, losing USB devices with votes, and so on... the evidence they contained can be presumed to go against their case.

So destroying or losing things could well backfire, even if it makes it hard to prove fraud.

Does the same basic presumption apply to trying to block observers from watching the counting? It certainly seems like it should, but it's a slightly different question.

Elizabeth VaugnThe most frightening part of Stenstrom’s testimony came at the end. He had “just learned two days ago that virtually all chain of custody logs, records, yellow sheets, everything, was gone. All forensic evidence, all custody sheets in [inaudible] County are gone. They had a signing party where they sat down and poll workers were invited back to recreate those logs and our understanding is as of today, was that they were unsuccessful in getting them all. So we have a situation in where we have 100,000 to 120,000 ballots, both mail in and USB, that are in question. Now there’s no cure for this, there’s no remedy for this. As a home charter we could have a re-election in Delaware County for our own representatives within our own town. But there is no cure for that for the president of the United States. And I don’t believe, as a citizen and an observer to this, that anybody could certify that vote in any good conscience.”

If the audit logs and documentary evidence to support an election is missing, and it appears to be missing, then courts can presume it to be unfavorable.

PowerLine discusses Powell's Georgia lawsuit

PowerLineIn any event, as already noted, it seems highly implausible, given the production of a paper ballot checkable by voters and given the hand count of the paper ballots, that many votes for Trump were counted as votes for Biden.

The problem with this assertion is that the ballots print and read QR codes. They also print a readable version of the ballot. But if the two do not match, how can the voter tell, assuming they even bother to check?

Now, this would probably be fixable by hand counting the ballots. But I seem to recall not all Georgia counties actually did a hand recount. And many voters probably do not think to check their ballots. That's also far from the only way to cheat with a voting machine.

Also, Powell's suit doesn't rely solely on voting machine issues. It also alleges a number of other issues, each of which has the potential by itself to change the outcome.

Powell should have the chance to present her full case.

The rest of his post makes the good point that Republicans in Georgia were not necessarily confident of a Trump victory. That may be so. But it may also be so that the 2018 elections were tainted by similar issues and the polls were very demoralizing.

Trump campaign lawsuit in PA dismissed

ZerohedgeA federal appeals court has tossed an attempt by the Trump campaign to revive a lawsuit seeking to undo Pennsylvania's certification of Joe Biden's irregularity-plagued victory in the state.
The Friday decision potentially sets the stage for a US Supreme Court showdown, in which the 6-3 (arguably) conservative majority could overturn the results of the election.

I'm a bit less sanguine about this case. The appeal was on narrow procedural grounds and was only necessary due to chaos within the Trump legal team about what exactly their case consisted of. The basic issue is whether the Trump team could amend their complaint a third time to add back in claims they had allegedly removed in their second complaint. (Comments from the Trump team seem to suggest they don't think they removed those claims, so it may have happened accidentally). I am of the opinion the court should allow obvious mistakes to be corrected given the urgency of the matter, but that's quite literally a judgement call.

The Trump team appears to think that their lawsuit getting dismissed will go quickly to the Supreme Court and win there, but if their lawyering was sloppy the SC is not going to be forgiving. That appears to be false bravado; sure you expect lower courts to be cautious about a case like this, but you still have to make a good evidentiary record and going to the SC asking for the right to undo your mistake (which is all the remedy I think they can really ask for at this stage) isn't helpful. Even if the SC agrees and tells the trial court to let them amend, this was all wasted time.

There is another PA case which has blocked certification of the PA elections and may get to the Supreme Court faster and do better. That one could throw out all mail-in ballots because the procedural change did not follow proper procedures for amending the constitution. That would be a drastic remedy, but maybe a necessary one.

An interesting note about Georgia election technology

UncoverDCA key takeaway from the briefing was the logistical and technical issues that plagued the county before the polls opened. When asked by Corbitt how they solved the technical glitches, Barron replied that using large amounts of technology lends itself to problems, but the new equipment enabled them to log in to the poll pads and fix problems remotely.

That's capability will also enable the admins (and hackers) to alter vote counts in any number of ways.

National FileAs the nation is focused on the lack of system security in the 2020 General Election, now comes news that not only did Dominion Voting Systems have access to the entirety of the Chicago voting system and database, they had that access for over half a year.

In a March 2020 video of an emergency meeting of the Chicago Election Board (CEB), that body approved a motion to provide Dominion Voting Systems the right and capability to remotely access their machines in an administrative role during the 2020 election.

Eric Coomer, the Director of Product Strategy & Security for Dominion Voting Systems, was a full participant on the call suggesting that, from the start, Dominion was the one running the elections in Chicago, the thirds-largest city in the United States and one that glows cobalt blue in its politics.

It looks like giving Dominion's biased employees remote access from home was standard practice.

Nevada voters listed their homes as RV parks... or casinos

The Epoch Times“This investigation found over 13,000 voters whose voter registration information revealed no sex or date of birth. Not only does this mean we cannot verify whether these voters are old enough to vote, it is also historically strange: While one does not expect voter registration information to be perfect, it is very strange that there were very, very few of these kinds of imperfect records with missing or invalid information until this year—when there are 13,372 of them,” the data scientist said.
“I have also identified dozens of voters who listed as their home or mailing addresses a temporary RV park and casino,” she wrote.

An RV park may actually be someone's home, but it's also a good indicator that someone's residence in the state may be rather temporary. Casinos often have hotel rooms... but again, that doesn't seem likely to be the permanent address of a resident.

PA absentee ballot lawsuit likely to succeed on the merits

Legal InsurrectionA Pennsylvania state court Judge has issued a preliminary injunction preventing Pennsylvania from taking any further steps to perfect its certification of the election, including but not limited to appointment of electors and transmission of necessary paperwork to the Electoral College, pending further court hearings and rulings. The ruling upholds an injunction from earlier in the week, and is significant because of the findings made in the Opinion released tonight.

The issue in this case is whether legislative expansion of absentee balloting to broad mail-in balloting violated the Pennsylvania Constitution. It’s not clear what the relief would be; the petitioners seek to preclude the Secretary of State from transmitting the certification or otherwise perfecting the electoral college selections.

The big news here is that the judge says the case is "likely to succeed on he merits", which would toss out all of PA absentee ballots cast under the Act 77 rules. The actual remedy would be up to the judge. Decertifying the results would be the simplest way to deal with it, as the legislature could then assign their own, but there are no good options here. That's the problem with massive vote fraud. It's very difficult to fix.

For readers: Expect the PA state supreme court to overrule, and the Supreme Court to hopefully overrule them. PA's Supreme Court is known enemy territory, and the SC is known to be friendlier due to other cases. But nothing is certain -- especially the remedy.

AZ hearing on election fraud has bombshells

Zerohedge has the video.

Holy Shit. Military intel guy testifying at Arizona hearing is confirming manipulations in past elections (he named Cruz v Beto and Bevin's race in Ky). He says he observed election day traffic, confirming the systems were on the internet.

Votes can be moved in large batches, whether by administrators or hackers.

Qnatch malware discovered on the servers, which records credentials, enabling remote access with those stolen credentials.

He SAW changes.

He observed traffic going to Frankfurt, one of the sites that has been coming up- in the hammer/scorecard/kraken stuff. The CIA has a known facility in Frankfurt.

It is starting to look like this stuff is real, although details are still lacking.

35,000 fraudulent ballots added to all Democrats in Arizona, as reported by a whistleblower email, and confirmed by observation of an artificial vote spike at the beginning of counting. "Tested and shown to work in judicial retention elections since 2014."

The hearing is about 5 hours long.

Evidence of election day irregularities

Sara CarterA Pennsylvania poll watcher testified to a Senate GOP Policy Committee hearing in Gettysburg Wednesday that he witnessed numerous Election Day irregularities.

Gregory Stenstrom, a former commanding officer in the Navy and a forensic computer scientist with expertise on security and fraud issues, alleged that 47 USB cards used during the Nov. 3 election have gone missing and estimated that as many as 120,000 votes cast in the election should be questioned.

“In all cases the chain of custody was broken,” Strenstrom said. “It was broken for the mail-in ballots, the drop-box ballots, the Election Day USB card flash drives. In all cases they didn’t follow any of the procedures defined by the Board of Delaware County of Elections.”

Bruce PorterExpert witness to the election fraud, Greg Stenstrom gives testimony of witnessing 24-30 USB cards being used to insert 50,000 votes in Pennsylvania! This is not normal, they denied they did it, but as of today, 47 USB cards from PA election are missing.

This is evidence.

An interesting summary of election issues

Patrick Bryne has been an interesting political figure lately. He has linked to FBI for counterintelligence, and whistleblew on their use of him and his connections with a Russian maybe-spy to get introductions to high level Republican politicians and figures in the NRA. Regardless of the individual's guilt or innocence, it's likely she was under FISA surveillance with at least some legitimacy (more than the rest of the Russiagate hoax). That allegation has, oddly, disappeared. Likely because it has at least some grains of truth, and Bryne's public outing of his FBI handler's instructions makes it embarrassing for both sides.

But now Bryne is writing about the election fraud. And he has the redacted affidavit from Sidney Powell's military intelligence witness. He has evidence of access to Dominion Voting Systems from China and Iran.

AffidavitIn my professional opinion, this affidavit presents unambiguous evidence that DominionVoter Systems and Edison Research have been accessible and were certainly compromisedby rogue actors, such as Iran and China. By using servers and employees connected withrogue actors and hostile foreign influences combined with numerous easily discoverableleaked credentials, these organizations neglectfully allowed foreign adversaries to access data 17and intentionally provided access to their infrastructure in order to monitor and manipulate elections, including the most recent one in 2020. This represents a complete failure of their duty to provide basic cyber security. This is not a technological issue, but rather a governance and basic security issue: if it is not corrected, future elections in the United States and beyond will not be secure and citizens will not have confidence in the results.

The details of this affidavit will require some technical and security domain knowledge to fully understand. As a developer, but without particular experience in the security field, it puts some meat on the bones of the allegations but remains incomplete, with some allegations relying on the personal knowledge of the witness.

An interesting tidbit from Bryne

Joanne Nova“Past election fraud? I don’t want to get ahead of the data, but it may have happened in 2012. It (fraud) was supposed to happen in 2016 for Hillary but it was shut down. I know exactly who shut it down. It’s one of the reasons why Hillary didn’t feel the need to campaign too much.

An interview with Patrick Bryne, who as far as I can tell is crazy like a fox. I recognize almost everything he says in the interview, and I don't think it's coming from him... except for the part I emphasized above. If it was supposed to happen for Hillary in 2016 (and yes, Hillary is easily corrupt enough to try that), but someone shut it down, and Bryne knows who that was... And he also mentions that he has a conduit to talk to people in government and give them information (which is probably true, based in his past history)...

Who shut it down in 2016? Why didn't they shut it down in 2020? (And what about 2018 -- yes or no?)

If he is telling the truth ... and has told others... things are going to get a lot more exciting soon, I think.

There and back and back again

I've written recently about the drama in GA where SecState Raffenberger ordered the election machines to be reset, preventing their examination to investigation election fraud. A judge ordered him not to, then withdrew the order. The order is now back on and directed at the people who actually control the machines.

It appears Atlanta already wiped their machines. I guess they had something to hide.

At least one race in Nevada is still in play

Just The NewsA recent analysis of the votes in Nevada cast in the 2020 presidential election is showing an inexplicable jump in problematic voter registrations. The analysis will likely give the Trump campaign another legal path to challenge Joe Biden's victory in the battleground state.

In an affidavit filed by Republicans challenging the results of the election, a data scientist testifies that she found a surge of incomplete voter registrations, in addition to voter registrations listing casinos and RV parks as the "home or mailing addresses" of the individuals registering. The faulty voter registrations come from the congressional district that covers most of Clark County, Nevada, of which Las Vegas is the county seat.

"This investigation found over 13K voters whose voter registration information revealed no sex or date of birth. Not only does this mean we cannot verify whether these voters are old enough to vote, it is also historically strange: While one does not expect voter registration information to be perfect, it is very strange that there were very, very few of these kinds of imperfect records with missing or invalid information until this year – when there are 13,372 of them."

Do the Democrats just have a fleet of RVs they give to their antifa types to use as mobile riot staging grounds and voting addresses? They can go to where they are most needed that year. Or, with mail in balloting, register in multiple locations and just drive between them picking up their mail?

PA legislature to name it's own electors?

PA State Senator says a joint resolution to take back the power to name electors will happen. Mind you, this is "news" mainly, I think, in that he wants to do it and plans to try. He didn't say anything to really talk about how much support the move would have, but Republicans control the legislature in PA. If they can hold their majority on the vote, they don't need anyone else.

Elected official furious about Smartmatic's lack of audit trail

YoutubeApparently frustrated at Smartmatic's Heider Garcia's failure to explain the internal clock glitches of some Precinct Count Optical Scan machines, automation defender Makati City Rep. Teodoro Locsin Jr. cursed at the Smartmatic official during his committee's hearing on alleged fraud committed during the May 10 elections.

This is a government official very, very, very angry at Smartmatic's lack of proper auditing capability. It's a little bit of a technical issue; he's basically complaining that the internal clock on the voting machines can be set incorrectly which renders their audit trail useless. I don't immediately see a good fix for this technically (to sync the clock would require network access, and some admin has to be able to set the clock at some point). I suspect the answer is that local election staff should not have admin access to reset the internal clock. This is far from the only security issue with voting systems.

Allegedly, Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems are linked, so the same design flaws likely apply.

Powell has the check stubs

Sidney Powell"We've got pictures of the check stubs paid to people to ballot harvest."

Pictures of check stubs is pretty damning, if in fact the payments were for "ballot harvesting" (which itself is a tricky question, as different states have different rules about what is allowed). But even if the idea that they were for ballot harvesting can be proven, you still have to have enough of those votes to change the outcome.

Brennan center recommended huge numbers of extra ballots

Gateway PunditBackup ballots are necessary, not only in response to machine failures, but also for provisional voting — when voters find themselves in the wrong polling place, or when they’ve requested an absentee ballot but wish to vote in person and a poll manager isn’t available to help. To cover all these scenarios, Georgia election officials should supply Election Day polling places with enough pre-printed ballots — and provisional ballot envelopes — for 40 percent of registered voters. And they should provide at least some backup supplies at early voting sites too.

Did Georgia follow that recommendation? 40% of registered voters is a huge number of blank ballots that could be used for anything.

Twitter blocking links to Powell's funding site?

BreitbartTwitter is blocking users from sharing links to lawyer Sidney Powell’s lawsuit relating to widespread voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential election.

A number of users across Twitter have reported being unable to share links to lawyer Sidney Powell’s lawsuit relating to voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential election. When attempting to share the link to the document, users receive a notification stating that the link has been identified as “potentially harmful.”

Twitter’s policy on blocking links states: “At times, Twitter will take action to limit or prevent the spread of URL links to content outside Twitter. This is done by displaying a warning notice when the link is clicked, or by blocking the link so that it can’t be Tweeted at all.”

It's interesting that Twitter has been so fast to block her, while as far as I can tell not actually blocking other lawsuits. They just slap "fact-checking" labels on most of them. The only other political thing I'm aware that they actually blocked was the Hunter Biden laptop. Which makes me wonder what Twitter is hiding about Powell's work.

Note that Breitbart suggests Twitter is blocking the lawsuits, Twitter appears to be blocking the whole domain they are hosted on, which is also Powell's fundraising platform. They may just be trying to make it hard for her to fundraise.

Lawsuit filed over native american vote buying scheme in NV

Gateway PunditIn Nevada, a lawsuit filed by the Trump campaign on behalf of Nevada electors states that “at least one of the social media videos in which NNVP promoted the voting drives and the incentives depicted NNVP personnel wearing a ‘Biden-Harris’ face covering and standing in front of a van bearing a ‘Biden-Harris’ logo and openly encouraged people to vote for Joseph Biden.”

The lawsuit continues on to assert that “offering something of value to a voter in exchange for his/her vote is a violation of Federal and Nevada law. All such votes cast in exchange for the above described incentives are, therefore, illegal and improper votes. The evidence will show that there were no less than 500 of these illegal and improper votes.”

“These illegal or improper votes cast and counted are in an amount sufficient to raise reasonable doubt as to the outcome of the Election,” the lawsuit asserts.

The native american outreach effort has been credited with giving the state to Biden. If that outreach effort used illegal vote buying... Nevada flips.

Chinese ties to Dominion

The National PulseAndy Huang, who serves as Core Infrastructure Manager of Information Technology at Dominion Voting Systems, previously worked at China Telecom, The National Pulse can reveal.

China Telecom is wholly run by the Chinese government, and has been identified by the U.S. Department of Defense as having collaborated with the country’s military for over two decades.

Similarly, the Department of Justice flagged the firm for “concerns that China Telecom is vulnerable to exploitation, influence, and control by the Chinese government” and how “the nature of China Telecom’s U.S. operations” provide “opportunities for Chinese state-actors to engage in malicious cyber activity enabling economic espionage and disruption and misrouting of U.S. communications.”

Judge blocks wiping of voting machines in GA

TwitterEmergency Order just entered by Judge Timothy C. Batten, Sr.:

“Defendants are ordered to maintain the statue quo & are temporarily enjoined from wiping or resetting any voting machines in the State of Georgia until further order of the Court.”

To my mind this comes several weeks too late, but it's a sign that at least one judge is taking things seriously.

Probably should be said that this does NOT mean anyone was actually wiping or resetting machines. It's a preventative. But if the machines turn up wiped after this and they weren't supposed to be...

UPDATE: The judge reversed himself because defendants are not in possession of the machines. Can't you injunct a third party to preserve evidence? Especially in a case like this where the third party is the GA state gov?

UPDATE: A new order adds the appropriate officials to the injunction.

47 USB cards "missing" and were "found" to have 50K Biden votes

Gateway PunditThe Pennsylvania state legislature on Wednesday held a hearing on the 2020 election issues and irregularities.

One very credible witness described how he personally observed dozens of USB cards being uploaded to voting machines which resulted in 50,000 votes for Joe Biden in a short period of time.

The witness introduced himself: “My name is Gregory Strenstrom, I am from Delaware county, former Commanding Officer in the Navy, veteran of foreign wars, CEO of my own private company, a data scientist and forensic computer scientist and an expert in security and fraud.”

“I was told that every election they leave a couple of USBs in the voting machines…after talking to law enforcement I found out that was not the case, that more than two [USBs] is unusual — so, they denied they did it but as of today, 47 USB cards are missing and they’re no where to be found…so I was told personally that these cards that were uploaded…they didn’t update the vote live in real time,” Strenstrom said.

He continued, “They only uploaded about once every 2 or 3 hours. I demanded they updated the vote so I could see what the result was and it was 50,000 votes — and as a computer scientist, an American and a patriot it doesn’t matter who those 50,000 votes were — I’ll tell you they were for Biden but what was shocking to me as an American and someone who has gone to sea, gone to war that could even happen.”

It's not the raw number of those votes necessarily, it's that the 47 "missing" USB sticks have no chain of custody. They could come from anyone. (Remember Philly had a USB key to their voting system and an admin laptop stolen in late October, so someone had the ability to use admin access to create fake Biden ballots). Knowing that it's 50K (at least) for Biden just tells you the magnitude of the problem when considering whether it would change the result of the election.

Over a thousand postboxes found on Georgia voter rolls

Just The NewsHundreds of Georgia voters registered and voted using addresses from postal facilities or businesses that appeared to be residential addresses, according to a former Trump campaign official and his team who analyzed the voting data.

The addresses listed on the rolls included information that didn’t make sense for the locations, but appeared on paper to look like residential ones, the newspaper also reported.

Some of the location also purportedly were UPS and FedEx locations.

Nearly all those “who disguised a postal facility as their residential address” used an absentee ballot to vote, Braynard said.

So in other words... you could vote in Georgia by renting a post office box and having your absentee ballot sent there.

That doesn't fly because the law says you have to live there.

Legitimate questions about Dominion Voting Systems

American ThinkerThere is an explosive investigation in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) regarding the Dominion Voting Machines (DVM) and Brad Raffensperger’s role in easing the security surrounding those machines. According to the AJC, in October the Secretary of State’s office was responsible for weakening the system’s defenses, disabling password protections on a key component that controls who is allowed to vote.

Just days before the early voting started, on October 12th, according to the AJC, Raffensperger’s office “pushed out new software to each of the state’s 30,000 voting machines through hundreds of thumb-drives that experts say are prone to infection with malware.”

According to the article, the features that make this new software vulnerable to hacking would “not be detected without an audit after the election.” The software has a feature where voters verify their selections as a paper ballot and then the ballot is fed into an optical scanner by an election official. For reasons that are difficult to understand, the scanner doesn’t record the text of the ballot. Instead, it reads “an unencrypted quick response” or QR barcode that is indecipherable to the human eye.

That feature, according to the AJC, makes it possible either to tamper with individual voting machines or to infiltrate the state’s central election theory. In theory, hackers could alter the barcodes to change votes and there would be no way to detect the changes.

It's funny how these concerns from the left suddenly disappeared after the election, isn't it?

The Trump plan to win Wisconsin

Red StateThe effort by the Trump Campaign to reverse the outcome of the election in Wisconsin is beginning to gain some attention — it now has my attention...

But, because “strict compliance” with the rules and requirements of absentee voting is required by Wisconsin law as noted at the outset above, persons who “self-designated” as being “indefinitely confined” — and evaded the photo ID requirement as a result — cast unlawful ballots that cannot be included in the certified result of any election.

The recount now underway in Dane and Milwaukee Counties is likely for the limited purpose of just trying to reduce the margin from 20,000 votes to some lesser number. That lower number then becomes the “target” in the search for absentee ballots where the application for the absentee ballot — especially for newly registered voters — included a “self-certification” that the elector was “indefinitely confined”.

Basically, mail-in ballots combined with COVID-19 provisions allowed Wisconsin voters to improperly evade voter ID requirements. Those ballots will have to be tossed out. There is a lawsuit seeking that remedy from the Amistad Project.

Thousands of fake ballots found?

Gateway PunditThe Wisconsin recount of 2020 election ballots is currently underway in Wisconsin.

According to our source on the ground: More than 2,000 of fake votes were found at Wisconsin Recount in Dane County on Friday!

Take Gateway Pundit with TWO large grains of salt on this one.

I don't know the full details, or why they think the ballots are fake. But based on the text and images, the issue seems to be that there are thousands of ballots that all have the same signature.

The problem is that the ballots pictured are all signed under the line reading "Absentee ballot issued by". That is, the signature is from the person who issued the absentee ballot, not the person who received it. The same official signing a lot of ballots as he sends them out is not a problem by itself.

The other issue is that they are allegedly absentee under "indefinite confined" rules, which are not supposed to apply to COVID (but many used COVID to claim that status and vote absentee). Those absentee votes would be illegal, if they could be separated out. Harder to prove, though.

So until we know more about why they are supposedly fake ballots, I suspect this is a nothingburger.

The Shadow of the Kraken

Front Page Magazine makes the connection between Powell's references to Hammer, Scorecard, and the Kraken.

Front Page Mag In 2017, WikiLeaks released numerous CIA documents detailing "Kraken." They included orders to spy on all major candidates in France's 2012 presidential election, including the incumbent at the time, Nicholas Sarkozy. "Kraken" would provide information on each party's election strategy and each candidate's private conferences and ability to influence political decisions.

The CIA uses another program in conjunction with "Kraken," called "Hammer" (or "Hamr" in the files WikiLeaks released), which Powell referenced. "Hamr" spies on protected networks without being detected.

The connection to Wikileaks documents that probably predate the election controversy is enough to take Powell's allegations even more seriously.

A common sense take on the Kraken

Meaning In HistoryWhat I came away with from Sidney Powell's Kraken was the conviction that the simple approach is probably the right one--in the short term. I believe there's ample reason to do a painstakingly thorough audit of the entire 2020 election, but the immediate goal has to be to right the specific wrong--undo The Steal. For that proximate, short term, goal a focus on traditional voter fraud will suffice, even though it may miss the bigger picture of election fraud. This takes nothing away from Sidney Powell's Kraken of a complaint--in actual fact, Powell presents a compelling account of just that sort of fraud. The big picture can be addressed--indeed, must be addressed--as we go forward.

I agree with most of this analysis. Powell's lawsuits touch on both general election problems and, broadly, the vulnerabilities of the Dominion systems used. The Dominion-related issues are complex and likely to take longer than we have, but do need to be investigated. Insofar as the presidential election, it will likely be necessary (not to mention, easier) to pursue more limited claims that invalidate enough illegal votes to break Biden's lead.

So far, almost everything Sidney has about Dominion is based on the idea that they are easily used for election fraud. So far as I can tell, she has one or two expert witnesses who appear to claim (based on quotes from her lawsuit, without seeing their full affidavits) actual evidence of fraud in the 2020 election. One of them is Russell Ramsland and the other appears to still be anonymous (publicly). If there's actually evidence these flaws were used to change the results, that could be explosive. But it will take time to sort out.

With a December 14th deadline and relatively small numbers of votes needed, pick off the easy states first and fast.

The 700K vote gap in PA

Meaning In History quoting Rudy You have two major gaps — you have the 672,770 votes that were not inspected by anyone secretly put into the ballot box and then you have this gap that I don’t understand between the mail-in ballots. You’ve sent out: 1.8 million and the number you counted: 2.5 million!

That’s totally impossible to explain other than what some of the other witnesses were suggesting that they were basically stuffing the ballot box. I believe what happened was that they never expected to be behind by 700,000 or 800,000 votes on election night. They expected to be behind by a couple hundred thousand — in Philadelphia to steal a couple hundred thousand votes, they do it every year, that’s not going to be tough. Now you have a real big problem so you had to create mail-in ballots, you had to stretch it out for a while.

If you sent out 1.8M absentee ballots, how do you count 2.5M when they come back? Obvious answer: some were fraudulent.

The gap here is the sourcing of those two numbers is weak; it comes from a website (granted, I assume it's an official government website with vote counts), and has since been updated. But was the update to cover up the fraud? Where else would the initial error come from BUT fraud?

The fact that it coincides with so many unexplained midnight mystery ballots that DO show up in the official reporting as Biden spikes suggests fraud is the simpler explanation.

Below the fold is Rudy's appearance on Lou Dobbs where he makes the same claim (it was originally made in the PA legislature's hearing).

The claim of a discrepancy in the requested/returned numbers has been challenged. See the update at the end. We don't know Rudy's exact sourcing on the claim, but he did suggest that the PA website changed the numbers. So we need more information from Rudy on that.

PA Legislature holds hearing on election irregularities

Just The NewsTrump lawyer and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday alleged major voting irregularities in Pennsylvania during a hearing in that state, claiming that Republican vote watchers were denied access to oversee the vote-counting process during the state's presidential election.

Giuliani was speaking at a Pennsylvania State Senate Majority Policy Committee hearing convened by state Republicans to examine allegations of voter irregularities there. Republican state Sen. Doug Mastriano said the meeting was convened after sustained complaints from residents "regarding issues experienced at the polls, irregularities with the mail-in voting system and concerns whether their vote was counted."

Giuliani in his opening remarks alleged that multiple GOP ballot watchers were barred meaningful oversight of the electoral process in Pennsylvania earlier this month.

National FileThe Science Defies Politics blog reported: “It is not clear what products or services the company has developed. It found almost no buyers, until Obama was elected in 2008. In 2009, New York ordered a few dozens of systems from it. In 2010, Obama’s DOJ (Holder – Mueller) took the EVS unit, purchased from Diebold, away from the market leader ES&S, and gave it to Dominion. This gift included the installed base of about 30% of the US electronic voting systems (EVS) market. Within two weeks, Dominion also acquired Sequoia, which was formally spun from Smartmatic, but ties between these two companies remained. Smartmatic is a UK based EVS vendor, whose software was used by Chavez to “win” the Venezuelan referendum in 2004. Smartmatic’s unit Sequoia faced troubles in the US. Those troubles quickly ended when its assets were purchased by Dominion.”

Another last minute uncertified update to Dominion voting machines

NoqreportA software update made 12-days before voting began in Georgia was not adequately tested for security issues nor was it recertified by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. Why? Because infamous Dominion Voting Systems executive Eric Coomer claimed the change was “minor” and did not require recertification.

Nothing to see here, right?

It all began when issues were noticed regarding Senate candidates not appearing on the touchscreen ballots. But attorneys for the plaintiffs called for paper ballots to be used in lieu of replaced technology because it was so close to the beginning of early voting in Georgia. Their request was denied outright by Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

A last-minute, uncertified change by an antifa supporter who claimed "we made damn sure" that Trump would lose in a state that subsequently became a very surprising loss for Trump? That's not suspicious at all.

NV court allows evidentiary hearing

Mark MeadowsBIG news in Nevada: a Judge has allowed NV Republicans to present findings of widespread voter fraud in a Dec. 3rd hearing. Americans will now hear evidence from those who saw firsthand what happened—a critical step for transparency and remedying illegal ballots. Stay tuned.

My only concern is that timing is so tight that waiting till Dec 3rd may be a delaying action.

Arizona Dems got 35K votes free?

Gateway PunditOn Tuesday Attorney Sidney Powell told Lou Dobbs “We’ve got one witness that says in Arizona at least there were 35,000 votes added to every Democratic candidate just to start their voting off.”

That's not an allegation based on speculation about Dominion trickery. It's a witness who saw it happen.

Another "glitch" in AZ benefited Biden

Gateway PunditJoe Biden’s lead in Arizona dropped from 10,377 votes to 4,202 after a machine error was discovered on Tuesday.

The error was from a faulty upload from Greenlee County, which showed 22,110 votes — but should have been 3,723. State officials say that it was temporary and has now been corrected.

This "glitch" happened during the recount. So whoever or whatever is screwing things up in AZ may still be there.

Election fraud hearings in 3 battleground states

Life NewsThree state legislatures will hold hearings on election fraud after all three states came under fire for potential election fraud and illegal voting that President Donald Trump’s campaign says was problematic in the 2020 presidential election.

The Donald J. Trump for President Campaign Legal Team today announced that the State Legislatures in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Michigan will hold public hearings on the election beginning tomorrow and next week in an effort to provide confidence that all of the legal votes have been counted and the illegal votes have not been counted in the November 3rd election.

The first hearing, held by the Pennsylvania State Senate, will be conducted tomorrow, Wednesday, November 25th, in Gettysburg, PA, where each participating Senator will give a five-minute opening statement followed by testimony from witnesses who have filed affidavits attesting to 2020 election fraud. Tomorrow’s hearing will also feature a presentation from former New York City Mayor and Personal Attorney to President Trump, Rudy Giuliani.

On Monday, November 30th, the Arizona legislature will hold their own hearing, followed by the Michigan legislature holding their own hearing on Tuesday, December 1st. Details for both hearings to follow.

Hopefully, we'll get some new evidence here, and the legislatures will be persuaded to investigate further.

FBI and DOJ are asleep at the wheel

Just The News"I wish the federal law enforcement were involved, the way it certainly was deeply engaged in trying to concoct the case against President Trump," he told host Carrie Sheffield. "I believe the DOJ in general – the Department of Justice – is asleep at the wheel here while there may be really systemic fraud taking place that is truly undermining our republic."

Cortes says he has no idea why the FBI is not involved when there may be such significant fraud occurring, some of which they can prove.

"We do have significant amounts of fraud that we can right now prove in court through affidavits and through eyewitnesses, and then we also have perhaps even more importantly, the constitutional issues, and these are critical constitutional issues," Cortes also said.

The FBI isn't involved because they don't want to be. Wray is quite content to see Trump go. Barr has some fight in him, but he can't do everything personally.

The Kraken went down to Georgia

Just The NewsProminent defense attorney Sidney Powell sued Georgia's top officials late Wednesday, alleging in federal court that the GOP-run state government permitted a massive voter fraud scheme that rigged the Nov. 3 election in favor of Democrat Joe Biden.

The suit was filed in U.S. District Court in Atlanta on behalf of several Georgia residents, electors and Republican Party officials and named Gov. Brian Kemp, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and state election board members as defendants.

"The fraud was executed by many means, but the most fundamentally troubling, insidious, and egregious is the systemic adaptation of old-fashioned 'ballot-stuffing,'" Powell's suit alleged. "It has now been amplified and rendered virtually invisible by computer software created and run by domestic and foreign actors for that very purpose. Mathematical and statistical anomalies rising to the level of impossibilities, as shown by affidavits of multiple witnesses, documentation, and expert testimony evince this scheme across the state of Georgia.

"This scheme and artifice to defraud affected tens of thousands of votes in Georgia alone and 'rigged' the election in Georgia for Joe Biden," the suit added.

Here's the lawsuit in PDF form. I've read it. It's clearly written as far as legal proceedings go. The exhibits "will follow", which is disappointing, but they are quoted throughout the document and it's possible to glean some idea of what they will contain.

Notable things: Powell touches on most of the issues we have heard of already for the election in GA. The fake water main break is there. The changes to election procedures by Raffenberger are there. She alleges a number of different sources of fraudulent or illegal ballots and puts numbers to them. Any one win would be enough to overturn the results by itself (with maybe one smaller exception). And, yes, the claims about Dominion are there, though somewhat toned down.

We should expect affidavits from many of the GA poll watchers we have already seen or heard from. In addition, Powell's "secret affiant" from Venezuela is mentioned but not named. She does have a separate named affidavit to the Venezuelan connection, so it's not just one anonymous (to us) person. She also has a "military intel" affiant who claims to have examined the Dominion systems and alleges that they both could be and have been improperly accessed by foreign sources.

This may be the head of the Kraken, but we still haven't seen the tentacles.

Lawsuit alleges vote suppression targeting GOP reminiscent of Jim Crow era

Just The NewsIndependent lawyers partnering with the Trump campaign on select election challenges are arguing that what they see as suppression of the GOP vote during the 2020 presidential election is reminiscent of similar ballot-box access battles during the 1960s civil rights era.

The national conservative legal group Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society announced Friday that it will file federal and state lawsuits challenging the presidential election results in battleground states, with the Trump campaign joining the lawsuits on a case-by-case basis. Trump lawyers have argued that voting practices, particularly unique methods adopted during the COVID-19 pandemic, created disparate treatment or unequal protection of voters in violation of the Constitution.

This sounds like a solid equal protection case... if you apply civil rights laws in a race-neutral manner.

5 ways Joe Biden's election was magically suspicious

The FederalistCandidate Joe Biden was so effective at animating voters in 2020 that he received a record number of votes, more than 15 million more than Barack Obama received in his re-election of 2012. Amazingly, he managed to secure victory while also losing in almost every bellwether county across the country. No presidential candidate has been capable of such electoral jujitsu until now.

While Biden underperformed Hillary Clinton’s 2016 totals in every urban county in the United States, he outperformed her in the metropolitan areas of Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. Even more surprising, the former VP put up a record haul of votes, despite Democrats’ general failures in local House and state legislative seats across the nation.

He accomplished all this after receiving a record low share of the primary vote compared to his Republican opponent heading into the general election. Clearly, these are tremendous and unexpected achievements that would normally receive sophisticated analysis from the journalist class but have somehow gone mostly unmentioned during the celebrations at news studios in New York City and Washington, D.C.

Too many red flags.

The Venezuelan whistleblower affidavit

Center for Security PolicyAn affidavit from a former confidant of the late Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez provides evidence that Smartmatic election tabulation software was created by the regime and exported internationally to manipulate voting results.

If you've been wondering exactly what is in that affidavit, follow the link above for a summary and a copy of the whole thing. The thing that is missing, at least for me, is clear evidence this technique was actually used in the US. There's enough here to start an investigation, but not enough to prove that this is how fraud was done. (There is plenty of statistical proof of fraud, but that is relatively independent of methodology).

FEC Chairman says affidavits prove fraud took place

Neon Nettle“The massive amounts of affidavits that we see in these cases show that there was in fact fraud that took place,” Trainor said Friday.
Trainor specifically highlighted a sworn affidavit by Steven Miller, a professor of mathematics at Williams College.
Miller—who specializes in analytic number theory and sabermetrics—flagged nearly 100,000 ballots in Pennsylvania for potential voter fraud after analyzing election data and phone interviews, according to The Epoch Times.

Between 89,397 to 98,801 ballots were either requested by someone other than the registered Republican or requested and returned but not counted, he said.

Trainor said that Miller is clearly qualified as an expert witness in almost any court in the United States and that the court would have to look at the information he has provided.

There are so many different ways they cheated.

How Zuckerberg's money flowed into the four key cities

CNSNewsUnder the pretext of assisting election officials conduct “safe and secure” elections in the age of COVID, Zuckerberg donated $400 million — as much money as Congress appropriated for the same general purpose — to nonprofit organizations founded and run by left-wing activists. The primary recipient was the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), which received the staggering sum of $350 million. Prior to Zuckerberg’s donations, the CTCL’s annual operating expenses averaged less than $1 million per year. How was Zuckerberg even aware of such a small-potatoes operation, and why did he entrust it with ⅞ of the money he was pouring into this election cycle, despite the fact that it had no prior experience handling such a massive amount of money?

Part of that money went to boosting ballot box numbers in Democrat areas, the subject of a recent lawsuit.

Judge blocks PA from certifying election results

ZerohedgeA Pennsylvania judge on Wednesday ordered state officials to not certify the results of the 2020 election until her court holds a hearing on an election contest on Friday.

Commonwealth Judge Patricia McCullough ordered the state to not take any further steps to complete the certification of the presidential race, which the state announced on Tuesday. She also blocked the certification of all the other election results.

“Act 77 is the most expansive and fundamental change to the Pennsylvania voting code, implemented illegally, to date,” the lawsuit, filed in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, states.

“As with prior historical attempts to illegally expand mail-in voting by statute, which have been struck down going as far back as the Military Absentee Ballot Act of 1839, Act 77 is another illegal attempt to override the limitations on absentee voting prescribed in the Pennsylvania Constitution, without first following the necessary procedure to amend the constitution to allow for the expansion.

There's some question of exactly what it blocks, but granting the injunction is usually a positive sign for the chances of the case on the merits. The case alleges that mail in voting changes violate the PA state constitution.

Those assuming Trump has no chance may need to start reevaluating things.

Tampering with Republican ballots

American ThinkerIn retrospect, I should have realized something was up from the absence of Democrats at my polling place, aggressively waving campaign flyers urging voters to vote for their candidates. There weren't any. We Republican poll-watchers had the usual candidate visits and their volunteers stationed all day at the election districts. Now we understand their absence. They weren't needed.

Two days after the election, the mail-in-ballots we never requested, as reported in my article "Stealing Pennsylvania," arrived — without postmarks! They arrived too late for us to withdraw the provisional ballots we were forced to cast.

After another few days, my provisional ballot appeared to have been accepted, but my husband's was not. Nor was the ballot of my very Republican second cousin, also forced to vote provisionally in a different township but same Democrat-controlled county, due to a mail-in ballot request that she also had never submitted. Infuriatingly, the Democrats filed to contest over 4,000 votes in our county — my husband's and cousin's among them. What are the odds that people, who have voted in the same location for over 20 years, would suddenly be suspect?

Mail in ballots have been a complete disaster.

The single batch of Georgia votes that flipped the race to Biden

General DispatchBiden’s lead in Georgia is only 12,781 votes. – This analysis is based on official timestamped election night data from Edison Research which was obtained from the NYT website. – This batch of 23,487 votes went, at an exact absolute minimum, 97.9779% for Biden. – This batch was uploaded at 12:18AM EST on Nov 4. – This is not a case of updating one candidate at a time; we can see from looking at the surrounding batches that Trump did not receive any corresponding entries. – According to official data released by the state of Georgia, the county in which Biden received the highest percentage of total absentee by mail votes was Dekalb County at 86.39% (a whole other can of worms). – That makes this batch of votes extremely suspect, even if every single allowance is made with the minimum number of votes gained and assuming it’s 100% mail in from the most heavily D county. – There are likely thousands of questionable votes in this batch. The ballots that comprised this batch should and must be obtained and independently audited (i.e. not by city officials) as soon as possible.

They had to cheat so very hard that it should be easy for an honest judge to overturn the results with a clear look at the evidence.

It'll be a lot harder to find an honest judge.

Dominion printed ballots deliberately indistinguishable from hand-marked ballots

American ThinkerSomething important, uh, on these marks that are created on the ballot is we have a huge library of handmade marks so it’s not a perfect oval that you are going to be able to identify that that was a mark by a machine. But it’s, it’s ah, it’s a library of different random hand marks that looks like somebody else used a Sharpie to vote the ballot. So you are never going to be able to say this is ah, a ballot voted by the accessible uh voter, this is a ballot voted by a person with a Sharpie for example, for, with the mark.
Yeah, again it’s all about preserving voter anonymity, um you know if, if you only have one or two disabled voters in a given precinct an if you’re using standard marking techniques where they’re, uh uh an exact perfect fill of that oval um you would be able to uh distinguish that ballot from somebody that just hand marked it. So this is one of those further steps that we do um to preserve that anonymity.

That's from Eric Coomer, an official with Dominion Voting Systems who allegedly has strong political views favoring Antifa. He said the above during a sales pitch. So let me translate that for you.

His ballot-marking-device is deliberately indistinguishable from a hand-marked ballot. There's no way to tell a printed ballot from a hand-marked one, and this is a deliberate design decision. The claim is it preserves "anonymity" for disabled voters. The reality, in my opinion, is that it makes it difficult to separate printed ballots from hand-filled ones.

This also offers a possible motive for insisting election-day voters in Arizona use Sharpies. The printed ballot marks are designed to resemble Sharpie marks. This would make it that much harder to distinguish printed ballots from hand-filled ones.

Sidney Powell says first lawsuit will be filed Wednesday in Georgia

Just The NewsAttorney Sidney Powell said Tuesday on Lou Dobbs Tonight that she expects to file a lawsuit "no later than tomorrow" pertaining to the state of Georgia.

Powell, who alleges that massive election fraud tainted the 2020 election, described the suit as "a massive document" and said it will have "a lot of exhibits."

"The defendants are going to be folks in Georgia who are responsible for supposedly making sure the elections in Georgia are done properly," she said. "And there are just countless incidents of voter fraud and election fraud writ large in Georgia."

Hopefully, we'll finally see what she's got, or at least more of it. The fact that she is planning to file first in Georgia against what sounds like election official defendants suggests we might learn about the bribes she has alleged were paid to family members in return for the Dominion voting system contract.

Does the Trump campaign still have a path to victory?

RedStatePennsylvania is a bit of a mess at this point, but there are meaningful challenges to the vote totals still pending, the adverse decision in federal district court is being appealed (interestingly, only the denial of leave to amend is being appealed), and a new complaint relating to Philadelphia and the surrounding counties is being suggested as a possibility. I’ll summarize these in a day or two as more comes into focus this week.

The campaign has asked for recounts in two Wisconsin counties — Dane and Milwaukee. Both produced a large number of Biden votes — Dane County particularly. I’m not sure exactly what the goal is in recounting those counties, but it seems as if Wisconsin law allows challenges to ballots to be made during the recount process. The margin is only 20,000 votes out of 3.2 million cast, so it is not out of the question that if there was some nefarious practice engaged in, a recount might uncover a decent number of votes. Wisconsin has same-day registration, so the emphasis might be to target suspicious registrations as potentially invalid votes in those two counties.

But in Georgia, the approach seems to be a normal election contest that will take place in Georgia state court, and the evidence may be coming into focus that gives the Campaign a legitimate chance to reverse the outcome. The margin of Biden’s win in Georgia is only 12,500 votes, and the Trump campaign has requested a machine recount which they are entitled to under Georgia law given the narrow margin. After that, I am expecting that the Campaign will file a Petition to Challenge the election as explained in more detail below.

A good summary of the current legal state of play in three states.

More evidence emerging of Venezuelan influence on Smartmatic / Dominion

The National PulseIn a 2006 CNN segment entitled “Democracy for Sale,” the network reported a “company owned by Venezuela could be allowed to take over one of our top voting machine firms.” Less than two decades later, that premonition has come to pass, though CNN today contradicts their own reporting from 2006.

So, in 2006 CNN was linking Smartmatic to Venezuela. Classified US cables released by Wikileaks also tie Smartmatic to Venezuela. More details on the history. One of the Smartmatic officials admitted to election tampering in 2017 in Venezuela to the tune of 1 million phantom votes. He says this could not have occurred if auditors from all parties had been present at every stage of the election (and of course we saw Republican auditors in all battleground states locked out).

Was there fraud in Virginia?

American ThinkerRemember, earlier in the evening of November 3 Trump had a huge lead of 500,000-plus votes which the crooks had to eliminate; thus between 11:14 and 11:43 they created an enormous, out-of-thin-air surge of almost a half-million votes for Biden which, at 11:33 PM on November 3, suddenly flipped the lead in the race from Trump to Biden.

But this fraudulent maneuver had two problems. First, it was hard to believe, a sudden vote swing of 4.5% in just 8 minutes; and second, those half-million fake Biden votes might show more "votes" cast than there were registered voters to cast them, making the fraud immediately obvious. So the crooks had to lower the overall vote total to bring it more into line with the 2016 and prior presidential elections.

The data sure looks suspicious.

Rudy explains distancing from Sidney Powell

Daily Wire“I think it’s because we’re pursuing two different theories,” Giuliani answered. “Our theory of the case to get to the Supreme Court … is, basically, misconduct of the election by state officials in at least five or six different states, in which the misconduct of the election involved deprivation of Constitutional rights for the president.”

Two different theories is accurate enough, but it doesn't reduce the sting much compared to explanations based around campaign financing.

I think Rudy wants to stick to theories he has solid evidence for. He recognizes Powell has what sounds like a wild and crazy conspiracy theory. Maybe she has evidence for it, maybe not -- but if not, best his own more grounded cases not be considered guilty by association.

I consider this quite reasonable. Powell has had excellent sources in the intel community in the past and remains closely associated with Flynn, who also does. She may be on to something. But without solid evidence to present, which may be complicated by law enforcement activity and classification issues, it may be difficult to prove on the very compressed timeline we're on now.

Of course, there's another possible explanation:

American Thinker
Everything was fine between Sidney and the Trump legal team until, a few days after the joint press conference, she gave an interview on Newsmax where she claimed that the governor of Georgia and the secretary of state (both Republicans, by the way) had conspired and received bribes to install the Dominion voting system in their state. I can assume there were a few phone calls to the White House from individuals angry at the allegation.

I don't imagine that helped.

Did some PA counties improperly open ballots before the election?

American GreatnessAn October 29 story in the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that election officials in several Pennsylvania counties were debating how to alert voters that their mail-in ballot might not meet state requirements. “Officials across Pennsylvania are trying to help voters fix mail ballots that would otherwise be disqualified because of technical mistakes in completing them, creating a patchwork of policies around how—or even whether—people are notified and given a chance to make their votes count,” reporter Jonathan Lai explained. Some jurisdictions were contacting voters directly; one county, according to the paper, sent the “flawed” ballots back to the voters.

But there was a much bigger story behind Lai’s article: Election officials clearly violated the law by inspecting mail-in ballots before November 3. According to Pennsylvania’s election rules, county election boards were required to “safely keep the ballots in sealed or locked containers” until pre-canvassing legally began at 7 a.m. on Election Day.

Not only were an unknown number of mail-in ballots mishandled by election workers days before the official start date, election observers were not present at the premature inspections.

It's not known how many ballots were illegally cured, but 2.5 million PA residents voted absentee. Read the whole thing -- there are more common-sense indicators of fraud.

What's going on between the Trump Campaign and Sidney Powell?

American ThinkerYou probably already know that Trump’s legal team announced that Sidney Powell is not a team member. The brief statement leaves unanswered the most important question: “Why?” Absent solid information, speculation leads us either to “This is the beginning of the end” or “This is all part of the plan” – and I’m leaning to the latter.

This covers most of the obvious possibilities. The idea that Powell's funding needs to be separate from the campaign's funding for legal reasons makes the most sense.

It's also possible that there's a credibility issue with Powell's claims that wasn't readily apparent. I speculated that perhaps there was in fact a raid on a server facility in Germany connected to her allegations about CIA manipulating elections from there, and the raid turned up nothing, so the Trump campaign cut her loose.

As with so much else, there's no way to know what is true. We'll have to wait and see.

Dershowitz lays out the paths to victory

Zerohedge“For example, in Pennsylvania, they have two very strong legal arguments. One, that the courts changed what the legislature did about counting ballots after the end of Election Day. That’s a winning issue in the Supreme Court. I don’t necessarily support it, but it’s a winning issue in the Supreme Court,” Dershowitz told Fox Business on Sunday. The team, meanwhile, has “a winning issue in the Supreme Court on equal protection, that some counties flawed ballots to be cured while others didn’t. Bush v. Gore suggests that an Equal Protection argument can prevail.”

Dershowitz, who helped defend Trump during the Senate impeachment trial earlier this year, said that due to Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s lead over the president, Trump’s team may not be able to contest enough ballots in Pennsylvania.

“The other legal theory they have, which is a potentially strong one, is that the computers, either fraudulently or by glitches, changed hundreds of thousands of votes. There, there are enough votes to make a difference, but I haven’t seen the evidence to support that,” he elaborated. “So, in one case, they don’t have the numbers. In another case, they don’t seem yet to have the evidence, maybe they do. I haven’t seen it. But the legal theory is there to support them if they have the numbers and they have the evidence.”

There appears to be good statistical evidence for the computer problems. Less currently known direct evidence for it, but the statistics alone make a good case if looked at closely rather than dismissed.

GOP calls for audit before certification in Michigan; law may not allow?

Just The NewsRepublican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel and Michigan Republican Party Chair Laura Cox in a Saturday letter urged the Michigan Board of State Canvassers to order an audit into Wayne County's results prior to the election results being certified.

"This board faces a stark choice: it can either ignore numerical anomalies and credible reports of procedural irregularities, leaving the distrust and sense of procedural disenfranchisement felt by many Michigan voters to fester for years; or it can adjourn for fourteen days to allow for a full audit and investigation into those anomalies and irregularities before certifying the results of the 2020 General Election, allowing all Michiganders to have confidence in the results," they wrote in the letter.

According to Michigan Radio, Michigan Department of State spokesperson Jake Rollow in a statement said that an audit could only come after certification of results.

The problem with recounts is that they recount the same fraudulent ballots. To be meaningful, there has to be a way to throw out illegal ballots. It seems likely that will take lawsuits.

Not surprised to see lower courts and Obama judges dismissing cases. I would like to see a better look from the Trump legal team, though. I understand things are rushed, but I see a lot of unforced errors.

It's possible to lose a good legal case through incompetent lawyering.

Affidavit from Dominion contractor alleges widespread double counting

This is a sworn affidavit from Melissa Carone, who witnessed a variety of fraudulent practices while working IT support. Her affidavit alleges batches of ballots being counted multiple times and a suspicious delivery from vans during the night shift that coincided with the 100,000 Biden ballot surge.

I've posted this person's video interview previously, making the same allegations.

It's worth noting this person doesn't allege anything improper specific to the Dominion system or any hacks of that system, unless you count manually double-counting ballot stacks as a hack.

Trump wants an honest recount in Georgia

Georgia“Today, the Trump campaign filed a petition for recount in Georgia,” the campaign announced Saturday. “We are focused on ensuring that every aspect of Georgia State Law and the U.S. Constitution are followed so that every legal vote is counted.

Trump’s campaign said it wanted the recount to include signature matching to police for possible fraud.

“President Trump and his campaign continue to insist on an honest recount in Georgia, which has to include signature matching and other vital safeguards. Without signature matching, this recount would be a sham and again allow for illegal votes to be counted.”

We got one recount already, but it just counted all the ballots a second time, without enforcing new safeguards that the original count lacked. To get a second one, with proper safeguards, Trump will likely need a court order.

Red flags in the Georgia recount

RedStateGeorgia has conducted an election, and a risk-limiting audit of the electronic vote tally by doing a complete hand recount of all paper ballots cast.
The hand recount contained anomalies in several counties — paper ballot totals that did not match the electronic tally. In some instances, the discrepancy was minor, likely attributed to human error in the hand recount process.

Three counties reported finding electronic storage media that contained votes not entered into the electronic tabulation following the close of voting on November 3, and one county reported finding 2600 ballots that were not scanned and included in the vote totals following the election. Those four combined to add approximately 6000 votes to the outcome.

In looking at some of the recount totals, there are clear questions that need to be explored and the Trump Campaign should ask for the machine recount it is entitled to under Georgia law. The first reason to do so is the anecdotal evidence supplied in some of the affidavits filed in the Lin Wood litigation which questioned the integrity and accuracy of the hand recount process.

Long story short, many batches of "found" votes in the hand recount had a much higher percentage of votes for Trump than the official batches. Why the difference? Were the batches in the "normal" process manipulated in some way?

Obviously we don't know yet -- but this is yet another oddity that suggests some form of manipulation.

More statistics about PA vote fraud

RevolverWe find considerable evidence consistent with the possibility of electoral fraud in vote counts in Montgomery County, PA.

In particular, we examine a highly anomalous update to mail vote totals in the NYT/Edison data which enormously benefited Biden, and which looks suspicious on a number of dimensions.

At a high level, our results are suggestive of a new and highly suspicious batch of mail ballots being added to the count sometime between Wednesday early morning and Thursday morning. These ballots are drawn from an implausible distribution that enormously favored Biden and simultaneously harmed Trump (the latter being done in addition by allocating more votes to Jorgensen). Said mail ballots end up being extremely different both from the mail ballots that came before (as measured in NYT data), and the mail ballots that came afterwards (as measured in the county’s own data).

Everywhere you look, there are red flags of fraud. Some of it -- lots of it -- was certainly done with physical ballots. Some of it may have been done electronically. But we just need to prove enough fraud to swing the election, however we get there.

How Trump Wins

Washington ExaminerIn his first contest, back in 1982, 11 out of 45 voting machines used in his state House district were rigged to block a vote for the Republican. Fortunately, enough poll workers realized the problem and let his supporters mark their vote on a sheet of paper hung on a wall.

He won with 57% of the vote, and he has gone on to win more state general elections than any other current Alabama politician.

It helped make Brooks a student of election fraud, and he believes the 2020 presidential race was rigged and that President Trump was robbed of victory. “We know the results are wrong. What we don't know is how bad wrong,” he told Secrets.

Take the fight to the House. Easier said than done, though.

GA governor comes out in support of signature audit

Just The NewsAfter certifying his state's election results, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is now urging his state to conduct an audit comparing the signatures of voter applications and mail-in ballot envelops to those on the approved voter file to determine if fraud occurred.

Kemp, a Republican, made the appeal to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger during a news conference on Friday.

“It’s important to note that this audit only looked at ballots, not the signatures on the absentee applications or the signatures on the ballot envelopes," the governor said. "The Georgians I have heard from are extremely concerned about this, so I encourage Secretary Raffensperger to consider addressing these concerns. It seems simple enough to conduct a sample audit of signatures on the absentee ballot envelopes and compare those to the signatures on applications and on file at the Secretary of State’s Office."

Public pressure works.

Mind you, I'm not sure if an audit is useful after the results have been certified. Maybe the legislature can still change the elector slate if the audit finds problems.

Also important: there are allegations in some places that the signature envelopes on ballots have been discarded and destroyed (presumably improperly as they are supposed to be retained). I think some of those reports came from Georgia. That may make it impossible to verify signatures. Do those ballots get discarded or discounted?

Biden's margin in PA AND GA came from counties that took Zuckerberg money

BreitbartSeventy-three percent of Joe Biden’s 126,649 vote margin gain in Pennsylvania, compared to Hillary Clinton’s performance in 2016, came from the seven counties and one city in Pennsylvania that received more than $18 million from the Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) “safe elections” project.

The CTCL provided more than $18 million in “safe elections” grants between September 1 and October 31 to at least seven counties and one city in Pennsylvania: $10 million to the City of Philadelphia, $2.5 million to Chester County (suburban Philadelphia), $2.2 million to Delaware County (suburban Philadelphia), $2.05 million to Allegheny County (Pittsburgh), $863,000 to Centre County, $474,232 to Lancaster County, $471,000 to Berks County, and $148,000 to Erie County.

Ninety-three thousand two hundred and ninety-three votes (93,293), or 73.6 percent of Biden’s 126,649 vote margin gain in 2020 Pennsylvania, compared to Hillary Clinton in 2016, came from these seven counties and one city.

Trainor said his review of evidence, including numerous affidavits claiming voter fraud and a sworn statement by a prominent mathematician flagging up to 100,000 Pennsylvania ballots, met the first level of legal scrutiny under what's known as motion to dismiss or "Rule 12(b)(6)" of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which would dismiss less credible claims.

American gun owners have a saying...

American ThinkerHere's a serious question. Have we passed that Rubicon in America beyond which it is no longer possible to pretend the American government is legitimately representing the people? I know that question is on a lot of Americans' minds these days, and I think it speaks volumes about our brewing crisis that none of our elected leaders has even attempted to acknowledge, let alone address, the growing unease outside the capital. People are arming up right now in record numbers not because of hunting season; they're buying weapons because their instincts tell them America is on the brink. But if America is on the brink, the D.C. Leviathan seems unsympathetic or unaware. That makes for an awfully dangerous situation.

There are three boxes to which a free man can go when seeking to remain free.

He begins with the soap box -- advocating for retaining his liberty, using the 1st Amendment to protect his ability to speak. The media's bias (especially following the final capitulation of Fox News), combined with Big Tech's censorship of the internet, and pervasive cancel culture, have created a situation where speech is no longer free.

If speech alone is insufficient, he moves to the ballot box, voting for leaders who will correct the situation. While this may not resolve the problem immediately, so long as leaders are chosen by popular vote in free and fair elections there remains hope.

The presidential race in 2020 appears to have demonstrated that the ballot box is no longer free or fair.

That only leaves one box left. Pray we need not open it.

Anecdotal evidence of vote fraud...

Clayton CramerThen he checked his wife. She was shown registered in 2006, which she has no memory of doing, because she was not a citizen. (Perhaps created from from DMV license information.) The sequence of arrival and transmission to the ballot counting center was identical to his. But her vote was not counted until the day after Election Day, when it was likely needed to improve Biden's vote totals. Several friends did similar checks and found "problems." One moved to New York and registered there. Their California voter registration shows up on that date--and it shows they voted in California; they actually voted in New York.

... but when you have enough anecdotal evidence of random individuals looking up their past addresses and finding out they voted there, you start to wonder if maybe this is a lot more widespread than just a few isolated incidents.

According to Pennsylvania state data for early and absentee ballot requests, there are roughly 165,000 ballots requested in the names of registered GOP voters that had not been counted as of Nov. 16. Extrapolating from data culled from interviews with a sample of these voters, "I estimate that the number of ballots that were either requested by someone other than the registered Republican or requested and returned but not counted range from 89,397 to 98,801," Williams College Professor of Mathematics Steven Miller said in a sworn statement provided to Just the News.

Election security: an interesting contrast

The FederalistWhile election violations, voter fraud, and uproar about election integrity have recently come into focus for many Americans in 2020, a group of more than 50 election and computer security experts wrote a letter on Monday featured by the New York Times asserting there is “no credible evidence of computer fraud in the 2020 election outcome.”

“Anyone asserting that a U.S. election was ‘rigged’ is making an extraordinary claim, one that must be supported by persuasive and verifiable evidence,” the experts wrote in the 2020 statement.

Many of these same experts, however, wrote another letter less than four years ago claiming that U.S. elections were vulnerable to exactly such weaknesses and encouraging improved security to avoid hacks, errors, and fraud.

It's interesting to speculate about what their motives are for this change. Did their push for election security in 2017 (after Trump's victory, broadly blamed on Russian interference that was not connected to hacked voting machines) provide the impetuous for a switch in voting machine technology to something with known vulnerabilities to abuse?

Evidence of voting machine intervention in the ballot count post-pause

Gateway PunditIn Georgia President Trump was up by as much as a 57% to Biden’s 42% and with 50% of the votes counted Trump was still way ahead. Then Biden was allocated batches of votes for hours, some with negative Trump votes and then with 89% of the votes in, Biden took the lead. From that point on for the next 53 batches of votes counted, for EVERY SINGLE vote batch the batches had exactly a 50.05% to 49.95% victory margin for Biden and Trump cementing Biden’s lead...

There are numerous batches after this point in time where the batches are reported at the EXACT same split, this time 50.254% Trump to 49.746% Biden, that’s right, precision to the THOUSANTH decimal. At 9:02 AM EST, there are two more large Biden batches counted that give Biden the first lead of election, with 91% of the votes counted and at 9:15 AM EST, Biden leads 49,3% to 49.2%! And from that point on, ALMOST EVERY BATCH is counted as 49% Trump, 50% Biden! 28 of 44 of them!

Again, it is completely INCONCEIVABLE mathematically and statistically that after the switch in the lead to Biden, batches of votes would have exactly the same distribution to both candidates.

What is going on with the data and the votes recorded in the 2020 election? These patterns observed in multiple states make no logical sense other than that data is being manipulated in the greatest election fraud in world history.

Take Gateway Pundit with a grain of salt, but if their analysis is true (and it is supported by independent sources for some states) this is solid evidence of machine manipulation of vote totals after the "intervention" that hypothetically occurred during the pause in counting.

Nevada has a cash-for-ballots problem

The Federalist Under the guise of supposedly nonprofit, nonpartisan get-out-the-vote campaigns, Native American voter advocacy groups in Nevada handed out gift cards, electronics, clothing, and other items to voters in tribal areas, in many cases documenting the exchange of ballots for “prizes” on their own Facebook pages, sometimes even while wearing official Joe Biden campaign gear.

Simply put, this is illegal. Offering voters anything of value in exchange for their vote is a violation of federal election law, and in some cases punishable by up to two years in prison and as much as $10,000 in fines. That includes raffles, free food, free T-shirts, and so on.

Organizers there might have been more obvious about what they were doing, but there’s evidence that similar efforts, including gift card and electronics giveaways, were undertaken in Native communities in South Dakota, Arizona, Wisconsin, Washington, Michigan, Idaho, Minnesota, and Texas.

Read the whole thing for details.

If this is pursued by law enforcement, it could roll up a lot of the campaign organization who participated with public evidence in the form of facebook photos and so forth.

It will likely take time to investigate this properly, but it should be investigated and the organizers should see jail time, along with a ban on all future participation in election organization.

Can ballot fingerprinting uncover fraud?

American ThinkerLet's consider the dumping scenario. Due to the limited time frame required to falsify ballots, it's likely that only a limited number of people participated.

So what does this mean? It means that (1) the same sets of fingerprints should appear on multiple ballots (likely in the same place(s) on the ballot), and (2) these identifiers won't match known voting ballot handlers (eg election workers or ballot manufacturers). If this is found to be true, then the most likely explanation for this is ballot tampering.

Thus, most, if not all, of such ballots can be shown to be fraudulent, even if the culprits are never identified. And a significant fraction of these fake ballots can be determined and counted.

This is real evidence. And a large number should be sufficient for court intervention in support of "spoilation".

Maybe, but there's not a lot of time and this approach would likely need law enforcement support as well as physical access to original ballots.

Ballpoints versus Sharpies

CodeMonkeyZWhy were ballpoint pens recommended before election day, but "Markers" NEEDED on election day?

Assuming this email (pictured at the link) is genuine, it sets up the same two-tiered voting system argument used in PA and other states. Especially if one or the other type of pen can be shown to perform differently.

Remember, the claim is that 1) Sharpies are more likely to result in spoiled ballots via bleed-through, 2) poll workers are accused of not letting voters cure spoiled ballots, or encouraging them to discard the spoiled ballot errors, and 3) voters on election day are more likely to be Trump voters.

That makes a difference in marking device on election day suspicious.

The Epoch TimesNine of the affiants swore to have seen suspiciously pristine, uncreased mail ballots, uniformly and perfectly filled out, almost always for Biden. In one case, a batch of such ballots included 500 ballots in a row all cast for Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee.

Voyles said that ballots usually show signs of handling, like written marks, creases, and torn edges. But a batch she counted while working as a recount auditor at the Georgia World Congress Center on Nov. 14 “stood out.”

“It was pristine. There was a difference in the texture of the paper—it was if they were intended for absentee use, but had not been used for that purpose,” Voyles testified. “There were no markings on the ballots to show where they had come from, or where they had been processed.”

“I observed that the markings for the candidates on these ballots were unusually uniform, perhaps even with a ballot marking device,” Voyles said. “By my estimate in observing these ballots, approximately 98 percent constituted votes for Joe Biden.”

Michigan elections board initially refuses to certify

Just The NewsThe elections board in Wayne County, Michigan's largest metropolis and home to the city of Detroit, initially refused Tuesday night to certify the results of its Nov. 3 election before an angry outcry led two Republican members to compromise and approve results showing Joe Biden won.

The initial vote and then sudden reversal injected new drama into the legal fight waged by President Trump's campaign in several battleground states.

The Wayne County Board of Canvassers originally deadlocked 2-2, with both Republican members refusing to certify the results after discrepancies were discovered in absentee ballot poll books in a majority of Detroit's precincts. Similar problems were discovered in the county's summer primary and the November 2016 election but did not impact the board's vote then.

But during a tense public comment meeting that followed, angry residents raised issues of race, suggesting majority black voters in Detroit were being disenfranchised.

It had nothing to do with race and everything to do with poll books that didn't match reported results. I am disappointed that the Republican representatives caved to the baseless accusation of racism.

They did stick to their demand for an audit.

What is the point of having a certification vote if a court can compel how people vote?

Proving widespread election fraud by electronic means

Meaning In HistoryHe obtained the serial numbers for the machines that were used in Michigan, then focused on four counties. Those counties had voter turnout that appeared to be prima facie impossible and also saw very large spikes in votes--mostly for Biden. According to Ramsland these spikes are "physically impossible", because the machines in use were not capable of processing the given number of votes in the time period indicated.

If true, this should obviously prove to be a very significant finding. Ramsland estimates that the number of votes involved is between 225K and 400K. That's important, because courts will not generally look at such anomalies unless the numbers involved could lead to reversing the outcome of the election. These numbers, even at the low end, are well past that threshhold.

Proof of fraud is coming in from many different angles. In this case, it's simply physically impossible for the voting machines in use to process ballots as fast as they supposedly did in the election results.

No one seems to be questioning the votes in Virginia but they should be. There are multiple reasons why the Virginia results in the 2020 Presidential election should be investigated.

I agree there were some oddities in Virginia, but Biden seemed to take a lead much earlier and without the same kind of suspicious pause. My gut feeling is that Biden didn't need fraud on a massive scale to take Virginia. Maybe Trump really won there, maybe not, but Trump's chances in other states seem much better.

Biden advisor is comfortable using propaganda on his own citizens

ZerohedgeRichard Stengel, the top state media appointee for US President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team (namely, the official US Agency for Global Media), has enthusiastically defended the use of propaganda against Americans.

"My old job at the State Department was what people used to joke as the chief propagandist," Stengel said in 2018. "I’m not against propaganda. Every country does it, and they have to do it to their own population. And I don’t necessarily think it’s that awful."

As Americans, we are supposed to be better than that.

Georgia finds 1200 net votes for Trump

Just The NewsDuring the recount of votes in Georgia’s presidential race, more than 2,600 ballots were found in Floyd County that had not originally been counted. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, this will likely reduce President Trump’s 14,000-vote deficit to Joe Biden by about 800 net votes.

This seems like an honest mistake, but every few hundred votes helps.

ZerohedgeA GOP recount observer in Georgia claims that several ballots recorded as Biden were actually votes for Trump, and workers conducting the recount became angry when he reported what was happening to elections officials.

The insider told Project Veritas, "The second person was supposed to be checking it right, three times in three minutes she called out Biden," adding "The second auditor caught it and she said, “No, this is Trump.”"

"Now, that’s just while I’m standing there. So, does the second checker catch it every time? But this lady in three times in three minutes from 2:09 to 2:12 she got three wrong.”" he continued, adding "They were calling their bosses. They were pointing at me..."

This seems like less of an honest mistake.

How many more we will find as the recount continues?

At least one more batch of 2755 votes, netting 449 more for Trump. And now another.

Arizona Reps demanding hand recount

Sara CarterRep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) on Friday co-signed a letter to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors asking for a “100 percent” audit of the county’s votes, despite the margin between the two presidential candidates being outside that which would automatically trigger a recount.

There are enough problems with this election to justify a recount even if you don't trust that hundreds of people had their votes discarded due to Sharpie issues.

The Dominion vote-switching justifies a hand recount by itself. And then there's the problem that the machines were not certified pre-election by officials from both parties.

Gateway Pundit A flash drive that contained crucial absentee voter information in the 2020 presidential election was briefly lost during the early morning hours of Wednesday Nov. 4 as the world waited for Milwaukee to reveal its ballot counts.

Sources within Milwaukee County law enforcement told Wisconsin Right Now exclusively that the executive director of the Milwaukee Election Commission, Claire Woodall-Vogg, realized she had lost the flash drive when she left, with police escort, the Central Count building where ballots were tallied. She was en route to the county courthouse to report “the results of more than 169,000 absentee ballots collected in the City of Milwaukee,” the Hill previously reported.

1.25 million vote anomalies

The Epoch TimesThe former data and strategy director for President Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign has canceled his vacation plans to comb through election data for voter fraud.

So far, they’ve identified 1.25 million voter issues that they’re following up on through phone calls and against other databases.

The largest issue they’ve found so far is with voters who had submitted a National Change of Address form to the post office indicating they moved out of state, yet appear to have voted in 2020 in the state they moved from.

“We’re calling them to confirm whether or not they actually cast the ballot, or if that ballot was cast by somebody else in their name,” Braynard told The Epoch Times.

I wish Braynard luck.

Another witness to election fraud

Gateway PunditShane Trejo witnessed the 3:30am Biden Ballot Drop that gave Michigan from Trump to Biden.

“There were thousands of ballots in each box,” Trejo says. “There were at least 50 boxes that I saw unloaded at 3:30am, well after the 8:00pm deadline for ballots to show up.”

“They should have been dumped on us at once, when there wasn’t a potentiality of fraud. There was no reason for them to show up this late at night.”

Shane Trejo believes that those were fraudulent votes and that the election was stolen.

Trejo was the intrepid journalist behind the exclusive series, #DetroitLeaks, that documented the training for Detroit poll workers where they were trained how to fight Republicans and how to cover up evidence of stealing the vote.

The 3:30am the Biden Ballot Drop was the first ballot delivery since 10:30pm, then 138,000 ballots showed up suddenly. Trejo says the ballots could not be processed right when they arrived, so by the time they were starting to be counted, a new shift of poll workers had started.

This is important because Trejo explains that the Biden Ballot Drop was dropped off at the end of one shift and left uncounted, so when the new shift came to count ballots they didn’t know where the ballots had come from.

This isn't proof of fraud, but it's certainly evidence of irregularity that should be investigated.

Georgia lawsuit challenges election rules, seeks to block certification

Just The NewsLin Wood, an attorney known for defending Richard Jewell in a case about an Atlanta bombing, lodged a lawsuit in federal court on Friday against Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and the four other members of the state's Election Board.

The suit, signed by an attorney for Wood, alleges a conflict between Georgia law and instructions pertaining to the handling of absentee ballots. The instructions were connected to an agreement that involved the Democratic Party of Georgia and other Democratic entities.

The suit requests that the court provide relief by blocking the certification of the state's 2020 general election results. Besides seeking to prevent the certification statewide, the suit also includes some alternative suggestions for providing relief regarding the issues raised in the complaint.

What we are seeing here is an issue that is very similar to the PA lawsuit likely headed to the Supreme Court. The allegation is that the Georgia legislature set the rules for the election, which were then changed due to a legal agreement (consent decree) between (executive branch) election officials and the Democratic Party of Georgia, and that this rule change makes the whole election invalid and uncertifiable. If the election in Georgia can't be certified, it's up to the legislature to decide what to do regarding that state's electoral slate. Georgia is a red state, so presumably Trump would have an advantage there.

Similar issues have been alleged in Michigan and Wisconsin, so I think we are starting to see a theme.

Did Democrats switch votes from Kanye to Biden?

Gateway PunditVotes that were clearly marked for Kanye West were, instead, given to Joe Biden in Michigan, witnesses allege.

“When the write-in is deleted and the mark is made for straight ticket, and the party is marked Democrat, all deleted write-in votes become Democrat votes, they were doing this all day,” said Robin Mifsud, a GOP Poll Challenger in Detroit on election day who witnessed Kanye votes going to Biden. “The Secretary of State took these people’s vote and changed it.”

Democrat Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson quietly issued rules this past summer that any “unapproved write-in” should have their votes CANCELLED.

Witnesses describe THOUSANDS of Kanye votes that were GIVEN TO BIDEN due to this Benson rule.

If someone voted straight-ticket Democrat and wrote in Kanye, since he was an “unapproved write-in candidate” according to the Secretary of State, they were instructed to remove Kanye’s vote and instead give that vote to Joe Biden, a 77 year old white man.

This doesn't seem unlikely; Democrats seem to feel they own the black vote. That said, how many actually voted for Kanye? Is it enough to make a difference?

A foreign perspective on the election

American ThinkerI live in Switzerland and was working at my computer the morning after the U.S. election when I was stunned to see the Fox election map suddenly do something completely unnatural: in a split second between 3 A.M. and 4 A.M. U.S. Central Time, the Wisconsin icon switched from light-red Trump to light-blue Biden. In that same instant, the probability meter, which had been very accurate in 2016, likewise jerked from a 77% Trump likelihood to over 80% Biden.

Maybe it's because most Americans did not watch it happen live as I did, but I have since wondered why this bizarre moment — Biden's Great Leap Forward — has not been widely mentioned.

Oh, it's been widely mentioned, but also widely censored.

Wisconsin lawsuit may change outcome

Washington ExaminerA federal lawsuit filed by three voters in Wisconsin seeks to have hundreds of thousands of ballots thrown out in three counties, including in the state’s two largest counties, which are Democratic strongholds.

The lawsuit filed on Thursday in the U.S. District Court in Green Bay contends that the absentee voting process in Milwaukee County, Dane County (where Wisconsin’s capital of Madison is located), and Menominee County included “illegal votes” and thus must have their presidential election results invalidated. If the long-shot lawsuit succeeds, it would add the state’s 10 Electoral College votes to President Trump’s ledger.

I'd feel better about their chances if the Trump team was backing this one.

Does signature verification work?

Review JournalClark County election officials accepted my signature on eight ballot return envelopes during the general election. It’s more evidence that signature verification is a flawed security measure.

I wanted to test that claim by simulating what might happen if someone returned ballots that didn’t belong to him or her...

On Monday, I asked Clark County Registrar Joe Gloria about this scenario. If ballots signed by someone else “came through, we would still have the signature match to rely on for identity,” he said. Asked if he was confident the safeguard would identify those ballots, he said, “I’m confident that the process has been working throughout this process.”

He was wrong. Eight of the nine ballots went through. In other words, signature verification had an 89 percent failure rate in catching mismatched signatures.

Large scale signature verification by relative amateurs has always been sketchy. For a small number of absentee votes where signatures can be scrutinized closely, it may be effective (at least at flagging obvious problems), and the number of votes at risk is small. Relying on it for a large scale situation like mass absentee voting it nuts.

Problems with the Georgia recount

ZreohedgeOn Friday morning, Georgia began to recount the votes it received on November 3. However, within a short time, reports came in that the recount process was being conducted with as little respect for transparency as the original vote count. Without that transparency, this recount is a waste of taxpayer time and money.

So here's what's important to know about Georgia's recount: the recount will do nothing to correct this first type of fraud. The process of vetting voters was wholly corrupt, and there is no way to disentangle the illegitimate from the legitimate ballots during the recount.

In theory, while it won't winnow out illegitimate ballots, a hand recount will at least prevent a repeat of the computer counting fraud. However, that works only if the humans doing the counting don't cheat.

I think it's harder for humans to cheat during a hand recount than it is to electronically switch thousands of votes. For that reason, it may be worth doing the hand recount. But I don't trust Raffenberger.

Georgia's massive Biden vote dump

Real Clear InvestigationsA curious thing happened as Fulton County, Ga., election officials counted mail-in ballots at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena in the days after the election. In the early hours of Nov. 5, a surge of some 20,000 mail-in votes suddenly appeared for Joe Biden, while approximately 1,000 votes for President Trump mysteriously disappeared from his own totals in the critical swing state, where Biden holds a razor-thin lead.

A poll watcher noticed the suspicious shift in votes while monitoring the interim election results on the Georgia secretary of state website.

“I concluded from looking at these results that this was an irregularity, since there was no obvious reason for President Trump’s totals to have decreased while former Vice President Biden’s totals increased dramatically,” Voter GA co-founder Garland Favorito swore in an affidavit he filed this week with the secretary of state’s office.

Favorito suspects a variety of factors, including that votes were "artificially inflated” for Biden while using the same Dominion Voting system used by Antrim County, Mich., which erroneously transferred 6,000 votes from Trump to Biden. Last year, Georgia contracted with Dominion to automate vote tabulations in all 159 of its counties.

“The software appears to have thrown votes from Trump to Biden here too,” he said in a RealClearInvestigations interview. “Or Biden ballots were manufactured."

The large disparity of gains between the two candidates "was something I had never witnessed before in my years of election monitoring,” said Favorito, a career IT professional who has been a leading advocate for election integrity in the state over the past two decades. He says he is not a Republican or Trump supporter.

This makes at least three states with massive overnight Biden vote dumps: Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia. PA also had a massive vote dump, but it appears to have trickled in via absentee ballots over about a week.

More statistical analysis of PA voting

The National Pulse“This means that the number of Biden votes in ten of the outlier counties was 101%± of registered Democratic voters (vs the majority of other PA counties where it was 70%± — an extraordinary statistical difference). That is not logical or reasonably explainable legally. The most likely explanation is that excess votes were added to the Biden total that did not come from voters.“

“These facts suggest a mathematically extraordinary event occurring in multiple counties simultaneously at a magnitude well above what is needed to change which candidate won Pennsylvania’s electoral votes.”

The Biden vote change over Hillary Clinton’s vote in 2016 in Montgomery County, PA shows a mathematically fraudulent result that is adding votes unnaturally to the tail of the distribution. High turnout or massive changes in voter preferences cannot statistically create this result in any reasonable probability. The signature is mathematical evidence of a classical form of fraud called “stuffing the curve”. The 2008 sub-prime mortgage risk management meltdown is a recent example of this kind of fraud.

Again, and again, and again, we have these statistical anomalies popping up only in the battleground states using Dominion that Biden needed to win.

Two Michigan State Senators ask for audit before certification of results

Just The NewsMichigan state Senators Lana Theis and Tom Barrett, in a letter to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, called for an audit of the 2020 general election to be carried out before the election results are certified.

"It is our responsibility, as elected public servants, to assure the people of Michigan of the process’s integrity through complete transparency and the faithful investigation of any allegations of wrongdoing, fraud, or abuse," the two Republican senators wrote in their letter to Benson, who is a Democrat.

The senators noted that there are affidavits that support the allegations listed in their letter.

It's unclear exactly how much fraud an audit would catch. A hand recount would eliminate machine errors on the large scale that has been alleged, while introducing smaller-scale errors. Fraudulent mail-in ballots would be trickier, especially if already removed from envelopes that bear signature verification information. However, given the red flags in Michigan, a complete audit by hand is the minimum standard necessary to certify the results.

Election security encryption keys stolen in Philly?

CodeMonkeyRemember the USB drives stolen in Philly? Those USB drives were admin access devices to enter the configuration and debug screens of the voting machines. With those stolen drives, someone could potentially change, purge, or inject ballots with impunity.

The AP reported on the theft.

AP“It is very, very common that a USB stick has a wealth of information that is related not only to the configuration of the election and its ballot — and the behavior of the voting device — but also internal system data used to validate the election,” said Perez. “In principle, someone possessing the information on one of these USBs could disrupt the opening and closing of the devices in polling places. They could disrupt how ballots are displayed on the screen and they could potentially disrupt counting votes on those ballots.”

And a month or so later when we run the actual election, what do we see? Massive election fraud in Philly.

Federal-only voters in Arizona enough to swing the election

Arizona MirrorOnly a small number of people in Arizona cast federal-only ballots in the 2018 election, an option that’s available for people who don’t provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote.

State law requires people to show proof of citizenship to register to vote, which voters approved as Proposition 200 in 2004. But the federal National Voter Registration Act of 1993 requires states to accept federal voter registration forms, which don’t have a proof-of-citizenship requirement, and the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2013 that Arizona can’t reject those forms, despite the disparity between state and federal law on the issue.

As a result, then-Secretary of State Ken Bennett implemented a dual-registration system in which people who don’t show proof of citizenship can still register to vote in Arizona, but are only eligible to vote in federal races.

So, if you are in Arizona illegally, you can register to vote using a Motor-Voter form that does not require proof of citizenship, but you can only vote in federal races. I'd rather have proof of citizenship for all voters -- it seems like other states are even more vulnerable to people using the same federal forms. But it does provide a way to guesstimate how many people in Arizona voted while maybe not being citizens.

So how many was that this year?

Enough to swing the Presidential race in Arizona.

Trump signed legislation making election hacking a federal crime

The HillPresident Trump has signed legislation making it a federal crime to attempt to hack federal voting systems.

The Defending the Integrity of Voting Systems Act was unanimously approved by the House last month, over a year after the Senate also unanimously passed the legislation. Trump signed the legislation on Tuesday, just two weeks before the election.

The new law empowers the Department of Justice (DOJ) to pursue charges against anyone who attempts to hack a voting system under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, commonly used by the agency to pursue charges against malicious hackers.

This one adds several points of credibility to claims that the voting systems were electronically hacked using Hammer and Scorecard, and that Trump knew it was coming and let it happen as a sting operation. I remain skeptical about such claims, but due to their nature we will simply need to wait and see.

Lawsuit alleges two-tiered voting system in Pennsylvania

The Epoch TimesThe Trump campaign has filed a lawsuit alleging the Pennsylvania election process violated the Constitution by creating different standards of verification and transparency for mail-in and in-person voters.

In a statement on Nov. 9, the Trump campaign said that the “two-tiered” system violated the Equal Protection Clause and the Elections and Electors Clauses of the Constitution.

“Voters in Pennsylvania were held to different standards simply based on how they chose to cast their ballot, and we believe this two-tiered election system resulted in potentially fraudulent votes being counted without proper verification or oversight, as well as many voters being disenfranchised simply for casting their votes in-person,” said Matt Morgan, general counsel for the Trump campaign.

The campaign claims in the lawsuit (pdf) that both the system and the way it was enacted created a lower barrier for mail-in ballots, and “diluted” the weight of legally-cast in-person ballots.

The two-tiered system argument calls back to the winning argument in Bush v Gore, where in that case different counties had wildly different standards for vote counting rather than a single uniform standard statewide. This situation is somewhat different as mail-in ballots are inherently different from in person ballots, but they are also clearly being held to different standards. For example, in person ballots have to be voted by election day, while mail in ballots are allowed up to three days after election day even without postmarks; in person ballots have signature verification but mail in ballots do not.

It's unclear exactly what the remedy will be should the Trump campaign win, but a win does seem likely.

My thoughts on election fraud

Was there fraud? Absolutely yes. There is always fraud. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Usually, but not always, on the Democrat side, likely because of a consent decree that limited the Republican ability to get involved in ballot security issues.

The real questions are how much fraud, did it change the results, can it be proven in court, and what is the remedy?

So, talking about the 2020 Presidential race...

How much fraud? Did it change the results?

Statistical evidence suggests hundreds of thousands of votes across 6 battleground states. In those states, Trump had substantial leads on election night, and that lead evaporated overnight as reports claimed tens of thousands of Biden-only ballots arrived in various states. Absentee ballot issues in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, and Michigan had voting machine irregularities that flipped several races. Georgia had a race outcome change in favor of the CFIA candidate when a mysterious thumb drive marked "provisional ballots" was counted as if it was filled with real ballots. In Arizona, some ballots were rejected and the voting machines were not certified by the Republican party representative. Tens of thousands of votes that only went to Biden and did not vote for any down-ballot races. Many errors that all seemed to go in the same direction.

Based on the above, I feel confident there was a lot of fraud and that it changed the outcome of the election.

Can it be proven in court? No idea. We have a lot of affidavits about questionable activity, but mostly on a small scale. There are legal issues about Pennsylvania's absentee ballots, but also claims that the USPS backdated ballots received after the deadline in PA and other states. In other states, absentee ballots had their security envelopes removed, preventing those ballots from being audited for voter eligibility or signature verification.

I suspect we can't prove enough individual fraud to overturn the results. That's part of the point of denying observers, hiding vote counting, and massively expanding absentee voting which inherently has fewer protections. But we may well be able to prove the systematic fraud case.

What is the remedy?

I suspect the only remedy we're going to get is a suggestion to the legislature that the election was corrupt and please assign the state's electors themselves. If we get that in enough states, we win. But the optics of rejecting an election, even a fraudulent one, are awful. I would not view that as a sure thing even after if the courts suggest it.

What to expect from the Trump team's legal challenges

Meaning In HistoryThis morning Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell both appeared--separately--on Maria Bartiromo's Sunday Morning Futures to discuss the state of the Trump team's election challenges. Of course, that means sorting through the rhetoric looking for solid things. In particular, looking for ways to connect the evidence they've gathered to the remedies they're seeking with regard to specific state elections--exclusion of entire classes of votes (mail-in ballots, for example, those counted without GOP observers present, etc.) or even a re-do. For example, demonstrating nefarious software capabilities isn't ipso facto proof of actual fraud having occurred. Nor are general conflicts and apparent corruption proof of actual fraud in the elections. The evidence that Trump's legal team presents will need to bear directly on the issue of actual fraud, rather than motive or ability alone. Motive and ability can enter into the presentation, but it won't be able to carry Trump to victory all on its own.

He does a good job explaining the important statements made by Rudy and Sidney this weekend. Bottom line: both Trump attorneys believe they have evidence of election fraud (ie, manipulated counting totals, not individual votes). They say they can't talk about the exact evidence yet, but they have it, and more is coming in all the time. Rudy says he can prove votes were manipulated in Michigan. Prove with witnesses. Sidney says they have identified the exact algorithm that was used.

I take it from this that someone in the Trump orbit, probably law enforcement, has significant evidence regarding election fraud and is in the process of collecting more. The lawyers have been told what is known and what is being collected but do not themselves have access to it yet, because they are outside of government. This suggests the evidence and operations are classified.

I have been skeptical about rumors of an operation in Germany to seize servers related to Dominion and/or Scytl. It now appears we have limited independent confirmation that something did indeed happen.

Video shows how easily Dominion voting machines can be hacked

BonginoMuch to their current chagrin, in April 2018, The New York Times published a video of a University of Michigan computer scientist, J. Alex Halderman, showing a group of students how easy it is to rig a Dominion Voting Machine. The name of the video is “I Hacked an Election. So Can the Russians.” A caption next to the title read, “It’s time America’s leaders got serious about voting security.”

Relying on voting machines to be secure has historically been a bad bet. But these seem designed to be insecure, and that's unacceptable.

Sidney Power describes Dominion's ability to change election results

She's describing a sworn affidavit that indicates the system was designed to corrupt elections in Venezuela for Hugo Chavez, and that it can be used to do so secretly and in a way that is difficult to detect. The machines all report to a central control room which shows the results in realtime.

The affidavit describes how, when these live results showed the desired candidate was losing despite the machine settings, the operators had to "turn off the internet" for an hour or two to update the machines. After the update, the desired candidate was back in the lead and the election was smoothly stolen.

This bears a very disturbing similarity to what happened in our own election. Counting in (at least) Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia shut down for a few hours late at night, with Trump firmly in the lead, and when counting resumed there were large bumps in Biden's vote totals sufficient to catch him up. Pennsylvania had an existing long delay planned out for absentee ballots; Nevada and Arizona also paused or delayed counting but had less obvious issues, perhaps because those states were closer to begin with.

Notably absent from this particular affidavit as Sidney read from it on the air was any direct knowledge that this kind of manipulation took place during this election. The individual was familiar with the how the software operated and how it could be used to fake elections. (That, in and of itself, raises interesting questions about involvement with Venezuela under Chavez). The symptoms matched. But they didn't claim to be in the control room watching our elections.

Hopefully, if the right servers are seized and examined, we can find logs tracking the manipulations. Powell and the President may already have that information, and simply be formatting it for release to the public.

However, from this affidavit, it is clear that there is strong circumstantial evidence linking those several-hour pauses and subsequent adjusted vote totals that we observed to the expected behavior of an election being adjusted in those locations using this same software. And we know those locations are using the same software.

There are rumors -- not yet strongly confirmed, but coming from multiple sources -- that a site in or near Frankfurt, Germany related to this software has been raided by US law enforcement to preserve evidence.

I think Trump's hand is a lot stronger than most people realize.

Woman who left California for Texas had her California registration used to vote

ZerohedgeA woman who says she voted in person for President Trump in Texas was shocked to discover that voter records showed she had also apparently voted in Orange County, California via mail-in ballot.

California is not exactly a swing state in this election, but federal officials might want to look into this later on.

Algorithmic manipulation of vote totals detected


He's talking about this video, I think:

I watched the whole hour-plus. They have something interesting, but not proof of fraud. It comes in two parts: the fact that Dominion Voting Systems has a "weighted election" feature, combined with an analysis of four Michigan counties that suggests it was used in three of them.

It should be easy to check the system settings to see if the weighted election feature was used. It would be expensive, but procedurally simple, to recount by hand all of those ballots.

If Trump is tweeting this out, I give it a little more credibility. Trump likely knows more about this issue than we do at this point.

The statistical case against Biden

The National PulseThe statistical case is, admittedly, circumstantial rather than conclusive.

But the numbers also firmly point to the intense improbability of the accuracy of the present Biden lead. The statistical case provides more than enough reasonable suspicion to require hand recounts and immediate investigation into fraudulent activities, including the new damning revelations of on-the-record whistleblowers.

There are four key elements to the numerical thesis

Nothing new here, but it's a nice summary of the main big-picture issues with Biden's vote counts.

Sworn affidavit details tens of thousands of suspicious Biden-only ballots

RedStateOn Monday evening, GOP spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington tweeted out the log of a poll watcher in Detroit, Michigan, who noticed some suspicious activity going on at the location where ballots were being counted. According to the poll watcher, a number of things seemed awfully irregular.

For one, an entire load of ballots came in at around 4:30 a.m. on November 4. According to the poll watcher, the shift was ending around that time but one of the men in charge of counting ballots announced over the microphone that an entire load had just come in. The poll watcher was told that the vehicles these ballots were delivered in had out-of-state plates.

The poll watcher logged that the ballots were brought in and placed on eight, long tables, but noted that the way they were brought in was irregular. The boxes were carried in from the rear of the room, which wasn’t typical at all. Also, somewhat irregular, is that every single vote was for Joe Biden.

That's from a sworn affidavit. That makes it evidence. It's not proof -- but it needs to be investigated.

Sworn affidavit alleges fabricated proof of residence data in Nevada

Sean DavisIn a new sworn affidavit, a whistleblower with the Clark County Elections Department in Nevada claims Nevada poll workers fabricated proof of residence data for illegal voters. So far, Nevada Attorney General @AaronDFordNV has taken no action to investigate credible fraud claims.

So what actually happened here?

Voters were allowed to file (possibly provisional?) ballots in Nevada despite not having proof of residence. By itself this might be legal. But it is additionally alleged that the ballots were filed with the DMV appointment number in place of an actual license identification number.

Is that legal? I don't know, but it seems suspicious, especially if the ballots were not provisional ballots.. After all, making an appointment with the DMV to apply for a driver's license is not actually having one.

More importantly, the same individual alleges he witnessed two individuals filling out multiple ballots inside a Biden campaign van, and other individuals tried to block his ability to observe this.

Excuse me while I call BS in Michigan

Red State1964 was a banner year for Democrats. Many, motivated by the death of JFK and the prospect of carrying his legacy on through President Johnson, showed up to the polls to vote. In Michigan, Kent County went to Johnson by a huge margin, defeating the Republican Nominee, Barry Goldwater by 13 points. In both 2012 and 2016, Republicans took the county, and now suddenly, after a giant swing, Biden won the county by 6 points. Remember, Obama didn’t even pull these numbers in 2008 or 2012. Excuse me while I call BS.

A county, that has gone Republican in more races since 1964 than Democrat, even having gone Republican in the course of the past two election cycles with native-son Mitt Romney in 2012 and to Trump in 2016 by 3 points, swings suddenly, out of nowhere, back into the blue column? A nine-point swing? In 4 years? GET OUT.

The author doesn't think Michigan can be easily flipped back, but he does think there was fraud there.

Personally? I think it's worth recounting the votes just because of the multiple reported glitches in the counting system, even before you start looking at tens of thousands of Biden-only votes delivered at 4:30am in an unusual way.

Trump demands emergency injunction in Michigan

ZerohedgeThe Trump campaign has requested an emergency injunction in a federal lawsuit aimed at preventing the State of Michigan from certifying the results of last week's election until election officials can certify that only legally cast, on time, and legally observed ballots are included in the count. The campaign is alleging several types of fraud, misconduct, and invalidated ballots based on a number of reasons - including 'malfunctioning' vote counting machines made by Dominion Voting Systems.

The Tuesday night filing in the US District Court for the Western District of Michigan alleges, among other things, that officials prevented GOP challengers from observing the count, scanned "batches of the same ballots multiple times," illegally accepted and pre-dated late ballots, including from unmonitored drop boxes, and that election workers illegally duplicated ballots," according to a statement from the campaign. The lawsuit requeusts that the court toss all ballots not observed by a GOP election challenger who has been "allowed to meaningfully observe the process and the handling and counting of the ballot."

Philadelphia judge of elections pleads guilty to election fraud

DOJUnited States Attorney William M. McSwain announced today that Domenick J. DeMuro, 73, of Philadelphia, PA, a former Judge of Elections for the 39th Ward, 36th Division in South Philadelphia, has been charged and has pled guilty to a two-count Information charging (1) conspiracy to deprive Philadelphia voters of their civil rights by fraudulently stuffing the ballot boxes for specific Democratic candidates in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary elections, and (2) a violation of the Travel Act, which forbids the use of any facility in interstate commerce (here, a cell phone) with the intent to promote certain illegal activity (here, bribery). U.S. Attorney McSwain’s video statement providing additional details about this case is available on the Office website here:

The Judge of Elections is an elective office and a paid position. In that role, DeMuro was responsible for overseeing the entire election process and voter activities of his Division. The Judge of Elections is charged with overseeing the Division’s polling place in accordance with federal and state election laws and is required to attend Election Board Training conducted by the Philadelphia City Commissioners.

This is from May, so it's not the current race, but it shows that fraud is real -- and can be prosecuted.

Another "glitch" in Michigan

Sky NewsSky News host Paul Murray says there has been another software glitch found in the US where 2,500 votes in Michigan had been moved in favour of Joe Biden.

“Perhaps the most interesting little glitch of the system thus far, is that there is some software that has been used in 30 different states, this is software that had 6,000 votes go from trump, glitch, Biden, identify the glitch, back to Trump," Mr Murray said,

“Well guess what happened today? they found another glitch.

“This glitch here moved two and a half thousand votes in Michigan back in favour of the president.”

It's funny how all these glitches seem to move votes in only one direction...

On second thought, it isn't funny at all.

Wisconsin invalid votes may be identifiable by use of red pen?

Dan O'DonnellCounty and municipal clerks and poll workers across Wisconsin may have unlawfully altered witness statements on thousands of mail-in ballots across the state, "The Dan O'Donnell Show" has learned.

Wisconsin Statute 6.86 provides that an absentee ballot must be signed by a witness, who is also required to list his or her address. If a witness address is not listed, then the ballot is considered invalid and must be returned to the voter to have the witness correct.

nstead, multiple sources tell "The Dan O'Donnell Show," municipal clerks and vote counters across the state simply filled out witness signatures themselves. Acting on false and unlawful advice from the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC), these clerks may have inadvertently invalidated thousands of absentee votes.

"The statute is very, very clear," said retired Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman, who worked as a poll watcher in Milwaukee on Election Day. "If an absentee ballot does not have a witness address on it, it's not valid. That ballot is not valid."

"In defiance of and direct contradiction to the statute, the Wisconsin Elections Commission gave guidance--that is, cover--to all 72 county clerks and turned the statute on his head," Gableman said. "They said, 'Gee, we know the law says an absentee ballot without the witness address is not valid, but county clerk, you have a duty to go ahead and look up on your own the witness' address if there's no address on the absentee ballot."

Anticipating a legal challenge to this seemingly highly unlawful advice, the WEC instructed clerks to write in these witness addresses in red pen so that they would be easy to find during a recount or audit of the vote.

The red pen detail is new (to me). And it is devastating if the clerks actually followed it. It means those illegal mail-in ballots can be identified and removed from the count.

Mail-in votes can be assumed to go substantially more towards Biden than Trump (Trump's voters were heavily encouraged to vote in person). Wisconsin had nearly two million people register to vote absentee who then returned their ballots, leaving about 1700000 registered voters to vote in person. Trump is only 20,000 votes behind Biden in Wisconsin. If even 1% of those 2M absentee ballots are discarded, you're at the 20,000 votes you need.

Now, since some people in those discarded ballots would have also voted for Trump, you'd need more than that, depending on the exact ratio. But there are other irregularities in Wisconsin, too.

Illegal voter registration rates may have affected the election

Judicial WatchWith many states reporting voter registration rates above 100% according to a recent Judicial Watch study, Fitton argues that Americans may have a reason to feel uncertain about the election results. Furthermore, as Fitton explained, “our investigations found that states and counties were giving different information to the courts about how many people are on the rolls.” As you may recall, a number of Pennsylvania counties gave incorrect voter roll information to the Federal Government this summer. In Clark County, Nevada, a county which proved decisive for Biden’s victory in the state, the registration rate is 102% – it has “154k extra names on the rolls,” Fitton stated. “Does that reassure you that the election was fair and honest in Nevada?”

“If you don’t like what’s going on, you need to be communicating every day with your state legislature. Call your state legislators especially, because they have the duty to appoint electors.”

Call your state legislators today and tell them how you feel about the situation at hand. The electors they appoint will provide the decisive vote in Congress this December. Lastly, “if you have information about voter fraud… contact your local officials and contact Judicial Watch about it at” America deserves free and fair elections – make a difference today by donating to Judicial Watch.

If you live in any of the swing states here, that goes triple for you. Demand your state legislators fix the problems, clean up the rolls, and if it proves necessary, assign the state's electors to Trump directly.

Tens of thousands of PA ballots returned earlier than sent date

The Epoch TimesMore than 20,000 absentee ballots in Pennsylvania have impossible return dates and another more than 80,000 have return dates that raise questions, according to a researcher’s analysis of the state’s voter database.

Over 51,000 ballots were marked as returned just a day after they were sent out—an extraordinary speed, given U.S. Postal Service (USPS) delivery times, while nearly 35,000 were returned on the same day they were mailed out. Another more than 23,000 have a return date earlier than the sent date. More than 9,000 have no sent date.

Ballots returned before they were sent? There seems no logical explanation for that other than fraud. Combined with the other questionable ballots, that's over a hundred thousand potentially illegal ballots. Those ballots alone exceed Biden's lead in PA.

Evaluating the Trump lawsuit in PA

National ReviewThe Trump campaign has filed a lengthy complaint in federal court, challenging Pennsylvania’s administration of the 2020 presidential election as a violation of the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause. This is the theory under which, 20 years ago, the Supreme Court invalidated Florida’s presidential election vote-counting procedures in Bush v. Gore.

The main target of the suit is the 682,479 mail-in and absentee ballots submitted from the Democratic strongholds of Philadelphia and Allegheny Counties (the latter includes Pittsburgh). According to current reported returns, presumptive President-elect Biden defeated President Trump in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania by about 46,000 votes.

The complaint alleges that in-person voters (a) were subjected to rigorous signature-matching, (b) voted in a polling place monitored pursuant to statute by poll observers from both parties, and (c) had “their votes counted in a transparent and verifiable open and observed manner.” By contrast, the Trump campaign asserts that Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, a Democrat, “affirmatively excised nearly every element of transparency and verifiability” for the nearly 2.65 million mail-in votes.

The complaint maintains that Secretary Boockvar refused to require adequate verification of voter identities (including undermining signature matching). She also permitted the counting of ballots received up to three days after the election even if they lacked evidence showing they had been submitted by or before Election Day (consistent with a state supreme court ruling, though inconsistent with state statutory law). In conjunction with other election officials, Boockvar is also said to have authorized the review and counting of ballots “largely in secret with no monitoring.”

Four dead people who voted in Georgia

Donald Trump CampaignThe American people deserve a free, fair, and fully transparent election in which every legal ballot is counted and every illegal ballot is not counted. Having confidence in our elections means knowing that votes are legally cast and that voters themselves are legally eligible to cast a ballot.

Americans cannot have confidence in election results unless elected officials, law enforcement authorities, and fair-minded journalists take the issue of voter fraud seriously and investigate potential instances thoroughly. The Trump campaign will continue to bring these allegations to light, and the media and election authorities should vigorously examine them.

Four examples won't be enough, but it does qualify as evidence. Georgia has already announced a full manual recount.

Sidney Powell on election fraud

TownhallAttorney Sidney Powell on "Sunday Morning Futures" said Trump's legal team is gathering evidence of "election fraud" that allegedly took place in election-related software, like Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic. As it currently stands, Dominion is being utilized in 2,000 jurisdictions in 30 states. Texas decided not to use Dominion on three separate occasions because of fraud concerns.

On top of that, former Admiral Peter Neffenger is the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Smartmatic. He is also on Vice President Joe Biden's transition team, which calls into question his impartiality, which doesn't pass the smell test.

According to Powell, the Trump campaign has enough evidence to launch a serious criminal investigation.

"We're fixing to overturn the election results in multiple states and President Trump won by not just hundreds of thousands of votes but my millions of votes that were shifted by this software that was designed expressly for that purpose," Powell explained. "We have sworn witness testimony about why the software was designed. It was designed to rig elections."

According to Powell, the witness that the Trump team has is someone who has seen elections rigged in other countries. Those same tactics and software were allegedly deployed to the United States.

"They did this on purpose. It was calculated. They've done it before," she said. "We have evidence of 2016 in California. We have so much evidence I feel like it's coming in through a fire hose."

Host Maria Bartiromo pushed back, saying the election must be certified in a few weeks. She wanted to know if there was enough time for Powell and the team to produce evidence of the alleged wrongdoing.

"First of all, I never say anything I can't prove. Secondly, the evidence is coming in so fast I can't even process it all. Millions of Americans have written by now, I would say, definitely hundreds of thousands have stepped forward with their different experiences of voter fraud but this is massive election fraud and I'm very concerned it not only involved Dominion and its Smartmatic software but that the software was essentially used by other election machines also."

Interestingly enough, Powell stated that the software's user manual talks about how "votes can be wiped away."

BreitbartAmid the most disputed election results in recent history, Twitter continues to censor the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

Of the 19 tweets posted by the President in the last 24 hours, 30 percent have been tagged with a warning from Twitter calling them “disputed,” and linking to a Twitter “fact check” — which usually consists of claims from the Democrat-aligned mainstream media.

Michigan Deputy AG alleges he personally witnessed vote fraud

BreitbartZachary Larsen, who served in both the Bill Schuette (R) and Dana Nessel (D) administrations, was a Republican poll challenger and arrived at the TCF Center in Detroit to observe the absentee ballot counting process last week.

Larsen said “the secrecy of the ballot was not being respected” throughout the process.

“Instead, the second official at the table where I was observing was repeatedly placing her fingers into the secrecy sleeve to separate the envelope and visually peek into the envelopes in a way that would allow her to visually observe the ballot and identify some of the votes cast by the voter,” he said in an affidavit that was part of a suit filed by the Great Lakes Justice Center.

Larsen said other individuals in the ballot counting process would also “peek to observe the ballot,” and he confirmed with other observers that they were seeing similar behaviors.

He said he was concerned that by violating the secrecy, a worker’s personal political preferences may impact whether a ballot would be placed in the “problem ballots” box.

In another allegation, Larsen said he observed workers county ballots “without confirmation that the voter was an eligible voter in the poll book.”

How many hundreds or thousands of votes went through this flawed process?

Details of a Nevada vote fraud operation

Washington ExaminerA second sworn affidavit from a whistleblower who was an election worker in Clark County, Nevada, claims mail-in ballots were improperly filled out in a Biden-Harris van outside a polling place.

A redacted copy of the affidavit signed on Nov. 8 and obtained by the Washington Examiner puts weight behind some of the claims first detailed by American Conservative Union President Matt Schlapp, who is helping lead the charge for the president’s legal efforts in Nevada. In a Sunday press conference, Schlapp said that an election worker saw a van “marked Biden-Harris” with open ballots inside.

The whistleblower, who worked as a poll worker from Oct. 17-30, complained about a Biden-Harris bus or van that was often stationed outside the polling place that would often have “speakers, dancers, music and other festivities going on” and whose organizers had to be told “several times a day” to “stay 100 feet from the polling location.” He also said that voters without proper identification were permitted to cast provisional ballots.

Provisional ballots doesn't quite capture it. They were allowed to file ballots after going to a DMV official located in the same parking lot and making an appointment to obtain identification. The ID number from that appointment was then used with the provisional ballot. In other words, the ballot was filed as if proper ID had been presented even if the appointment never took place and ID was never issued.

Washington ExaminerThe biggest shock claim, though, dealt with improperly filled out ballots in the van belonging to supporters of presumptive President-elect Joe Biden, whom he saw while on a lunch break walk on Oct. 28 or 29.

“I personally witnessed two people handing multiple unopened mail in ballot envelopes to two other people who then opened and filled out the ballots against the side of the Biden/Harris van,” the affidavit said. “The same two people who marked the ballots then put the marked ballots in official pink and white envelopes. These people were not poll workers."

Absolutely brazen.

Let the recounts begin

Front Page MagazinePresident Trump continues to claim that the election is “far from over,” and on Saturday vowed multiple lawsuits to contest the results announced so far. And while the media has anointed former vice president Biden the “president-elect,” just saying so does not make it so.

the only way to catch these computer “glitches” is to conduct a manual recount of the paper ballots. If the software has been hacked, as appears to be the case, running the ballots through the same tabulators will merely generate the same mis-count as it did the first time. Only manual recounts can uncover the truth.

That is what’s about to happen in Georgia and Wisconsin, and should be happening in Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania. Let the recounts begin.

Preferably with armed FBI "observers" and a full audit of the voting machine logs.

Excuse me while I call BS

RedStateThe point is this: One or two statistically impossible outcomes is theoretical. In this election, Democrats with a sub 40% enthusiasm level for their candidate, were able to erase gains in states Trump won, erase registration advantages, turnout record voters, and beat their 2016 turnouts by 20 and 30%? It doesn’t add up. I get people being mad at Trump. Give Dems a 3 or 4 point uptick in their 2016 numbers. 10 and 12 points? Nope. I call BS.

The same author has a follow-up looking closely at Wisconsin. Comparing Biden's turnout performance to Obama, there are just a few counties where Biden miraculously improved on Obama's turnout numbers by double digit percentages (20% in at least one case). But in most other counties, Biden underperformed compared to Obama's turnout.

RedStateWhat’s the point of all this? Trump’s data follows a natural and reasonable distribution. Where Trump did better, he did better than Romney almost as a rule. When Biden did better, he did better than Clinton in every county, which is to be expected, but still lagged over Obama in the majority of counties, many bordering these massive growth counties. If I were the Trump campaign, I would be looking at each of these counties with a magnifying glass. In totality, in those five counties, Biden beat Obama by 83,291 votes, in a state where Biden beat Trump by just 20,000 votes. Am I saying it is 100% fraud? Without being able to be inside the offices in each of these counties, I cannot, but what I am saying is the statistical nature of this forensic vote audit shows that these 5 counties didn’t just buck the trend, they bucked it by double-digit percentages. That… That is what requires some additional review.

Update: A reader asked about the total turnout in these 5 counties. The state is 92% total turnout. The 5 counties are Washington at 96.6%, St. Croix at 96%(95.99%), Dane at 90.38%, Waukesha at 94.56% and, Ozaukee at 94.96%.

95% turnout is absurd.

While media outlets have projected Democrat Joe Biden to be the winner of the presidential contest, President Trump has not conceded and has made allegations of election fraud.

No conclusions yet, but this may become actionable, especially if the vote remains close.

Nevada won't investigate vote fraud reports... yet

TownhallEven though Gloria said he was unaware of any reports of dead people voting, he said various reports have made it clear the state needs to go through and purge people from their rolls.

"We have several reports that come through with several entities to clean up our voter rolls," he said.

Why didn't you clean them up before the election when it would have made a difference?

Another flip in Wisconsin?

Gateway PunditCurrently the race in Wisconsin is showing Biden with a lead of 1,630,570 votes to President Trump’s 1,610,030 votes. When this adjustment is confirmed Biden will only hold a 1,508 vote lead. This of course is before any of the hundreds of thousands of questionable votes showing up for Biden in Milwaukee early in the morning after the election are validated.

Take the Gateway Pundit stuff with a grain of salt when he doesn't link to a source (and sometimes even when he does), but we've seen vote flips due to "glitches" in WI before. They should all be checked against the physically tabulated ballots.

A history of Democrat voter fraud

Frontpage In 1994, the fraud in one Philly election was so bad that a federal judge ruled that a Democrat State Senator had to be replaced by a Republican shifting control of the Pennsylvania Senate.

The New York Times, at the time noted that, "Democratic campaign workers forged absentee ballots. On many of the ballots, they used the names of people who were living in Puerto Rico or serving time in prison, and in one case, the voter had been dead for some time."

In, what ought to be a familiar story, "the two Democrats on the three-member board of elections, an elected body, testified that they were aware of the voter fraud, had intentionally failed to enforce the election law and had later tried to conceal their activities by hurriedly certifying the Democratic candidate as the winner."

The question isn’t whether there’s fraud in Philly elections. The only question is how much.

The answer: a lot.

Audit the Vote

SpectatorBut well above and beyond the law suits is the urgent need for an audit of all votes cast — an audit conducted directly under the eyes of a Trump and a Biden poll watcher.

If Joe Biden wants “unity” then he needs to get on the stick and demand that audit — a recount. On Saturday thousands of angry Pennsylvanians gathered on the steps of the State Capitol in Harrisburg for a “Stop the Steal” rally. I spoke, the crowd cheering when I said “Stop the steal — start the audit.”

Otherwise the calls for “unity” are nothing but hooey.

Which is to say, this is the leverage the Trump campaign needs. Either Biden agrees to an audit, a recount — with poll watchers from each party at the table with the counter — or the Pennsylvania electors will be drawn from a list submitted by the Trump campaign and instructed to vote for Trump.

There is only one thing wrong with this. There's no need for Biden to agree to an audit. The state legislature can call for one on its own whether Biden agrees or not. And they should.

Voting irregularities in Michigan by a poll challenger

Life Site NewsIn an exclusive bombshell interview with LifeSiteNews, former Michigan state senator and aerospace engineer Patrick Colbeck brought to light a long list of scandalous violations of voting procedure in Detroit, including brazen lies, cheating, and violations of Michigan law.

“Anybody who’s claiming an election victory on the basis of what happened, particularly in the state of Michigan and in the Detroit Absent Voter [AV] counting board, should not be claiming any sort of victory at all,” Colbeck told LifeSite’s Lisa Stover. “Because I’m telling you, the fraud that we witnessed, the interference… are going to knock the socks off of people that may think that this is just a matter of the vote that’s been cast, move on, there’s nothing to see here.”

An important element in evaluating claims that The Hammer and Scorecard were used to adjust election results is his claim that every computer he saw, with the exception of he poll books, were internet connected. If I was running an election with electronic voting, I'd want everything air-gapped for security messages.

Innocence or malfeasance

The Silicon GreybeardThe computer glitch that was found to have turned 6000 Trump votes into Biden votes in Michigan. Software that's used in 47 other Michigan counties, not to mention pretty much all the states with miraculous vote changes for Biden.

That was not a computer glitch. That was a programming decision. Whether that was some sort of programming error, which seems highly unlikely, or if it was deliberate cheating I don't know, but I highly suspect deliberately bad software. Let's face it; adding integers is just about the easiest thing to get a computer to do (and if you're thinking of adding votes as floating point numbers, go back to school).

Let's get one thing clear. Computer "glitches" cause a system to fail, or cause it produce random-looking outputs. They can even possibly reboot the system. If it's good software, it gives some sort of indication that something bad happened. If it changes the results of a count, or moves it to another candidate that's something else.

I am a software guy; it's what I do for a living. I don't work with election systems, though. What Silicon Greybeard is describing here is... mostly correct, but doesn't quite tell the whole story. I'm going to try to fill in the gaps.

What he's describing is the most basic level of "glitch", something that happens in a hardware failure or a very basic programming failure. Maybe memory is corrupted, network packets get lost, an electrical surge. Those issues can happen, but they are relatively rare in modern computer systems and applications.

We agree that that's almost certainly not what we are seeing in this case. The computer itself almost certainly did not screw this up.

That leaves us with two possibilities: malfeasance or innocent human error.

I believe malfeasance is a serious possibility, but we don't YET have enough detail to eliminate innocent human error. Suppose for example that the voting software in question has human input in how ballots are generated. (It HAS to have some degree of human input, of course, but how much and how exactly it works is unknown). Could a human accidentally transpose identifiers for Biden or Trump so ballots cast for one go to the other? Yes, it could be done, and depending on how the software works, it might not be obvious. Database software often uses random identifiers for cases like this, eg:

45989832458: Biden
32498398983: Trump

That prevents issues that could arise from two people named Biden or two people named Trump, but does make it hard to spot if they get transposed. The transposition could be deliberate and it could also be accidental.

If it only shows up in one precinct, gets corrected, and never shows up again... fine.

If it shows up twice or more... that's malfeasance.

The voter fraud cover up

PowerlineThe establishment is in full protect-Joe mode. The Left’s most important propaganda theme these days is that there is no such thing as voter fraud. Thus, when I did a post on Power Line titled Massive Voter Fraud In Wisconsin?, and linked to it on Facebook, the Facebook lefties were lying in wait.

They are so very, very, very desperate to stop people talking about voter fraud.

Ask yourself why.

The votes have been cast, right?

Biden won, right?

The elections were fair and honest............. right?

So it won't matter if Trump audits them with lawsuits... right?

Voting software firms linked to Pelosi, Clinton, Feinstein

Gateway PunditMaria Bartiromo: I’ve also seen reports that Nancy Pelosi’s longtime Chief of Staff is a key executive of that company. Richard Bloom, Senator Feinstein’s husband is a significant shareholder of this company [Dominion].

This isn't evidence of fraud, by itself, but given the other evidence we already have of problems with this software during the election -- including updates the night before the election in some cases -- it's worth noting for future reference.

The last ditch option for correcting fraud

Spotlight PANow, the head of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania has fueled fears of chaos after Election Day, raising the specter that his party could break with tradition and allow the GOP-controlled Legislature to choose a slate of presidential electors to cast the state’s votes for Donald Trump — even if the president doesn’t win the popular vote

“I’ve mentioned it to them, and I hope they’re thinking about it too,” Tabas told the magazine, referencing the Trump campaign. “I just don’t think this is the right time for me to be discussing those strategies and approaches, but [direct appointment of electors] is one of the options.”

His remarks, coupled with those of state Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman, R-Centre, have placed the state’s political world on alert for a constitutional showdown, with Democrats claiming it would amount to stealing the election.

The Democrats already stole this election through fraud. It is perfectly legitimate to take it back.

How to fix our elections

ZerohedgeWhether you are a Republican, a Democrat or an Independent, everyone should be able to agree that this election has exposed some very serious flaws in the way that we are currently doing things. Over the past 24 hours, I have been posting example after example of voting irregularities on The Most Important News, and this is probably the number one topic on social media right now. When this election is finally over, there are going to be tens of millions of voters that feel like this election has been stolen from them and that will have completely lost faith in the system.

As much as some of the talking heads on television would like to believe that everything will be okay if they simply ignore the irregularities that are happening, the truth is that the vast majority of Americans can clearly see what is taking place. It has never been more obvious that our system is deeply broken and desperately in need of major reform.

I'm not sure this plan is perfect, but it's the beginning of a conversation that needs to be had. More importantly than the exact details, though, is that the people who think they are in charge of running elections need to be broken. Because they ignored the rules, deliberately and with forethought, this time around. It doesn't matter what the rules are if there are no consequences for breaking them.

What can we do?

Sic Semper TyrannisFirst, Trump supporters in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona and Nevada must demand action by their state legislators. Those men and women must stand up and be counted and must fight this outrage.

Second, turn off the media and cancel subscriptions to those publications that have facilitated this evil farce. This means Fox. Only News Max and OAN can be relied on now to report what is going on. An honest media would be reporting on the growing mountains of evidence that the will of the voters was thwarted. Our so-called media, for the most part, is mute or insisting that we did not see what we very clearly saw–i.e., votes for Biden magically appearing in the middle of the night, Republican observers being barred illegally from doing their job, Trump supporters showing up to vote and being informed that they had already voted, and long lists of dead people who were resurrected from their graves to cast a vote for Sleepy Joe.

Third, shutdown your Facebook and your Twitter accounts. Create fake accounts and do not post any personal information about your activities or those of your family. Only support genuine social media that allow full, unfettered discussion. Sign up for Parler, for example

Read the whole thing. But there's a limited time window for your decision to stop paying Fox News or contributing to Twitter to carry a political message.

Did Trump lose an election lawsuit?

The FederalistLegacy media are lying when they claim that all of President Trump’s allegations of voter fraud are baseless. I know, because I argued a case on the president’s behalf in federal court in Philadelphia.

At issue was President Trump’s request for an order changing the way Pennsylvania absentee and mail-in ballots are being reviewed at the Philadelphia Convention Center. CNN and others claim he “lost.” That’s false: he won. As I made that argument on behalf of the president’s campaign, I can tell you what really happened.

Why is North Carolina so slow?

Fox NewsCounting votes can be a bit slower in North Carolina because the state allows more time, compared to other states, to count absentee and provisional ballots.

State law dictates individual counties have until Nov. 13 to report results from ballots tied to Tuesday’s election. But county election boards must also stick to a strict meeting schedule that is outlined by state law. And ballots are not counted until those meetings.

Nine county election boards met for their scheduled meetings to count absentee ballots for the first time since Election Day.

This appears to explain the North Carolina delay, and the large number of outstanding absentee ballots makes it harder to project a winner from election day results. Does not mean shenanigans are not occurring in the meantime, of course.

Georgia water pipe did not actually stop counting; officials LIED in Georgia have not been able to produce any invoices or work orders related to a “burst pipe” at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena that was blamed for an abrupt pause in vote counting on election night.

The only evidence for the burst pipe, released under freedom-of-information laws, was a text message exchange in which one senior employee at the stadium described it as “highly exaggerated … a slow leak that caused about an hour and a half delay” and that “we contained it quickly – it did not spread”.

“Beyond the lack of documentary evidence of the inspection or repair of a ruptured pipe, we are being asked to believe that there is not one single picture of this allegedly ruptured pipe, at a time and in a place where virtually everything is recorded and documented,” Georgia lawyer Paul Dzikowski, who obtained the text messages, told in an email on Wednesday night.

So, while in Georgia counting stopped due supposedly to a burst water pipe, they actually lied and resumed counting without supervision.

A quick-thinking citizen filed a FOIA request for any records relating to the burst pipe. And we have to find out about it from Australian media.“I just heard a water pipe burst at SFA that will cause vote count delay. Has this affected the AFCRA office? I think they were counting votes next door,” the sender, believed by Mr Dzikowski to be Mr Stewart, wrote at 7.42pm.

“No sir – it was highly exaggerated – it was a slow leak that caused about an hour and a half delay,” Mr Stiles replied at 7.43pm. “We contained it quickly – it did not spread – we just wanted to protect the equipment.”

And yet it provided a great excuse to send the observers home and resume counting without them.

When someone in a position like this lies, it creates a presumption of bad motives.

Censorship of Trump's communications to the people continues

France24Several US TV networks late Thursday halted live coverage of Donald Trump's first public appearance since election night after concluding that the president was spreading disinformation.
"OK, here we are again in the unusual position of not only interrupting the president of the United States but correcting the president of the United States," said MSNBC anchor Brian Williams, as the network quickly ended its live coverage.

The falsity of Trump's charges remains to be seen, but there is substantial evidence of fraud already available and more being discovered every day.

Censoring Trump's accusations of fraud is an attempt to prevent them from being investigated.

Let me remind you: Until January 20th, Trump is still the President. The election has not been decided. Allegations about election irregularities have been made and need to be adjudicated. Treating Trump as illegitimate is extremely dangerous.

What's going on in Michigan?

The FederalistPhill Kline is a former Kansas attorney general and now an attorney for the nonprofit Amistad Project, which filed a lawsuit Wednesday alleging that tens of thousands of ballots in Detroit have been illegally filled out by election officials and Democratic election observers. “We have confirmed evidence that Democratic election officials have violated state law,” he told The Federalist, “and have opened the door for fraud involving tens of thousands of ballots.”

Kline confirmed Republican officials have been barred from observing the counting of absentee ballots, and that transposed absentee ballots are being certified without a GOP official signing off on them. The law, Kline says, states that an official from both parties must sign off “if possible,” and that Democratic election officials are claiming they can’t find a Republican to sign off—even though they are also kicking Republican officials out of the counting rooms.

What's going on in Michigan is exactly the same thing going on in Georgia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Arizona, Nevada, and possibly even Alaska. They are stealing the election.

The last resort for addressing election fraud

The BlazeWho determines the outcome of the presidential election in a given state? Governors? Secretaries of state or boards of election superintendents? The courts? Fox News' decision desk? Nope. The president wins a state when electors selected by state legislatures conduct a vote in their respective states on Dec. 14. Thus, ultimately, according to the Constitution, the state legislators wind up serving as the kingmakers in a disputed election.

It's a last resort because it looks frankly undemocratic for state legislatures to step in and assign their own electors. But if the elections in the remaining states are so corrupted that valid totals cannot be determined, then legislatures may need to fix it, and assigning Presidential electors may end up as the least damaging way to do so.

Software "glitches" always seem to flip races from R to D

PJMediaIn Antrim County, the software glitch switched 6,000 votes from Republicans, including President Trump, to Democrats. The county clerk, a Democrat, caught the issue and it has been corrected in that county. Antrim County uses Dominion Voting Systems, according to WLNS.

In Oakland County, another glitch temporarily toppled an incumbent Republican. County Commissioner Adam Kochenderfer narrowly lost in the initial count, only to have a glitch discovered Thursday that had switched over 1,200 Republican votes to Democrat. Once the votes were properly attributed, Commissioner Kochenderfer went from loser by about 100 votes to winner by over 1,100. According to the Royal Oak Tribune, Oakland County uses election software from Hart Intercivic. Hart uses a proprietary system called Verity. Eleven Michigan counties use Hart’s systems.

It’s troubling that both glitches switched Republican votes to Democrat despite apparently occurring in different underlying systems. All told, 59 of Michigan’s 83 counties may be affected by these two glitches.

"Glitches" my ass. Glitches don't always seem to go in one direction. And it appears that the same software is used in many other states, including all of the swing states in this election.

The MI legislature is looking into it, but so long as they are blaming "glitches" they are allowing the cover up.

Pennsylvania House Speaker calls for full audit before certification

Just The NewsPennsylvania House Speaker Bryan Cutler is calling for a "full audit" of the presidential election returns in the state before the results are certified.

Just the News asked Cutler Friday if the secretary of state's office sent the clarification guidance on Nov. 2 to the boards of elections in every county or only certain ones.

"That's certainly probably something that should be covered in the audit," Cutler said. "I know that our county commissioners in Lancaster received it because they were the ones who notified me of it because they recognized that it was not entirely consistent with the agreement obtained in the Supreme Court decision previously, and that being the United States Supreme Court. The original set of instructions that were agreed to were then later modified."

The rate of rejected mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania this year is almost 30 times lower than 2016. That doesn't prove fraud, but combined with other allegations, particularly the defiance of a Supreme Court order, it's certainly suspicious.

Philadelphia's long tradition of vote fraud

Just The NewsEven as members of the mainstream media largely dismiss concerns about possible voter fraud, they are ignoring Philadelphia's long history of endemic political corruption.

Less than six months ago, for example, a former Philadelphia Judge of Elections pled guilty and was convicted for his role in accepting bribes to cast fraudulent ballots and certify false voting results during the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary elections.

"During his guilty plea hearing, Demuro admitted that while serving as an elected municipal Judge of Elections, he accepted bribes in the form of money and other things of value in exchange for adding ballots to increase the vote totals for certain candidates on the voting machines in his jurisdiction and for certifying tallies of all the ballots, including the fraudulent ballots. Demuro further admitted that a local political consultant gave him directions and paid him money to add votes for candidates supported by the consultant, including candidates for judicial office whose campaigns actually hired the consultant, and other candidates for various federal, state and local elective offices preferred by that consultant for a variety of reasons. Demuro also admitted that the votes he added in exchange for payments by the political consultant increased the number of votes fraudulently recorded and tallied for the consultant's clients and preferred candidates, thereby diluting the ballots cast by actual voters."

Let's not forget that in 2008, the New Black Panther party guarded polling stations in Philadelphia in military uniforms with billy clubs. They got away with it because the Obama DOJ ordered that the case be dropped -- after plea bargains had already been agreed to. They were back in 2012, thankfully without their billy clubs but still in military uniforms.

In Michigan, in order for a ballot to be considered valid, it had to be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day.

They are calling it a clerical error and saying the ballots were actually received before the deadline and not marked. That could be true. And it could be exactly what a vote fraud operator would say when he was caught.

The situation in Pennsylvania

SubstackTranslated into common English: In Boockvar, the Republican Party sent a request to the US Supreme Court to review a lower court case, and then asked them to hurry up about it. The US Supreme Court declined the motion to expedite, e.g. it refused to hurry up. But - and this is very important - it did not deny the petition for the writ of certiorari.

Thus the situation as it stands is that there is still a petition before the Supreme Court to review the situation in Pennsylvania, it just refused to do so before the election.

Now that raises the question: What’s the situation in Pennsylvania?

Sidney Powell claims evidence of manual changes to vote totals

That speaks to not just the validity of the results but, even more importantly, to intentionality. What Sidney Powell is describing does not sound accidental, and she is not just making baseless allegations. She speaks of putting what she has into court filings, so this information should be part of a case soon.

The only problem with this is ballots are being back-dated to election day, making them impossible to separate. (The whistleblower there has said he is willing to testify).

Evidence of voter fraud

Yesterday, I watched the ABC News election special. They would do a segment, then state that whatever Trump or his campaign had said was "without evidence". Over and over and over again. "Without evidence." "So far baseless." "Inflammatory rhetoric."

I've seen the videos. I've followed the links the Facebook and Twitter have banned. And I'm saving choice examples locally.

There is evidence.

They are afraid this could inspire "fringe elements" to "do something."

It could inspire the American people to take back their electoral system.

Below the fold is a collection of evidence of vote fraud in the 2020 election.

I'm going to add several qualifiers here.

First, there is a difference between evidence of fraud at a high level, and evidence of fraud in an individual vote. We can look at the election and its various processes and see red flags (and a followup article) of fraud in the totals. But correcting for fraud requires identifying and excluding specific fraudulent votes, or whole categories of votes where procedures were not followed correctly.

Second, an article from the BBC helpfully gives us some indicators to look for.

BBC (archive link)Too many voters
A high turnout in specific areas
Large numbers of invalid votes
More votes than ballot papers issued
Results that don't match
Delay in announcing results

We have every single one of those signs. So keep them in mind as you look through the evidence below.

Third, Scott Adams (of Dilbert fame) recently offered a good principle for these moments. Call it the 95% rule. For every given incident that seems questionable, 95% of them (as a rough approximation) will have some valid, reasonable explanation. 5% will be real concerns where actual vote fraud happened. We can't readily know which are which. We have to investigate them all to find out.

Fourth, Joe Biden announced before the election that he had built the largest vote fraud organization in the history of American politics. We should believe him.

This election is not over

Just The News"This election is not over."

"The false projection of Joe Biden as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from final," said Matt Morgan, Trump 2020 campaign general counsel. "Georgia is headed for a recount, where we are confident we will find ballots improperly harvested, and where President Trump will ultimately prevail."

"There were many irregularities in Pennsylvania, including having election officials prevent our volunteer legal observers from having meaningful access to vote counting locations," Morgan said. "We prevailed in court on our challenge, but were deprived of valuable time and denied the transparency we are entitled to under state law. In Nevada, there appear to be thousands of individuals who improperly cast mail ballots."

"Finally, the president is on course to win Arizona outright, despite the irresponsible and erroneous ‘calling’ of the state for Biden by Fox News and the Associated Press. Biden is relying on these states for his phony claim on the White House, but once the election is final, President Trump will be re-elected," he added.

The situation certainly looks bleak right now, but remember that we are at the beginning of a process. With so many red flags popping up, and the Democrats apparently going all-in on fraud, there is hope that audits can identify and correct the fraudulent votes.

Remember Florida in 2000 and Bush v Gore? They do too. They know that having one court case in one state where everything rides on the outcome is a recipe for disaster. That's why they froze counting in GA, NC, PA very early on. Those states were frozen to make it look like Trump lost by a significant margin in more than one state. But that's only an illusion, and it will be dispelled when you realize that the states currently outstanding are those they had to freeze because Trump was going to win.

Fact-checkers sued

Sara CarterBLEXIT founder Candace Owens is suing independent social media fact-checkers as she and other prominent conservative voices online continue to be censored, especially during a presidential election. The lawsuit names Facebook fact-checkers USA Today and Lead Stories Fact Checker, according to Fox News.

This is clever. Facebook, Twitter, etc, may be protected by section 230 for being (allegedly) platforms instead of publishers. But guess what? Those fact-checking orgs? They are not platforms, they are clearly making editorial decisions which Facebook has outsourced to them, and... they are liable for them.

Suing the fact-checkers seems like a viable line of attack, and those who have been unfairly censored should consider it.

If Trump finds himself with nothing to do on January 21st, filing some court paperwork might relieve the boredom.

Food for thought

Sdetting aside the outcome of the Presidential race, the GOP had a pretty good election. They held the Senate, probably, and gained seats in the House. It wasn't a wave for either side. If anything, it tilted significantly towards the Republicans, especially when you take into account control of state legislatures.

So what are the odds that such a result happens and the Republican presidential candidate loses? Particularly to a candidate like Biden, who is, let's be honest, uninspiring at best. Even Democrats admit Trump helped rather than hurt his party.

And yet he lost.

Or they cheated.

Milwaukee officials have some explaining to do

American ThinkerThe most striking feature of the data is a fact that cries out for clarification: in seven wards, voter turnout appears to have exceeded 100 percent. In two of those wards, turnout exceeded 200 percent. In another 15 wards, voter turnout exceeded 95 percent. Joe Biden carried 21 of the 22 wards of the 95-plus-percent wards. But then again, he carried all but one of the 67 additional wards in which the turnout was above 90 percent and won 80 percent of the vote citywide.

In 25 wards, Biden received 97 percent or more of the vote, none higher than 98 percent. Based on exit polls, it is highly likely that these were overwhelmingly black districts. No other demographic could produce those numbers.

The media is not interested. Twitter, Facebook, and Google have gone full censorship. Fox has sold out.

Who is going to make the Milwaukee officials explain anything? The FBI?

Don't make me laugh.

Big Tech censors Stop the Steal group

Just The NewsDays after the 2020 national elections, Facebook is enforcing emergency policies that executives at the Big Tech company have previously described as "break glass" options, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Late on Thursday, the company began implementing measures that it said were designed to stop the spread of false information and that could lead to unrest in the aftermath of the elections, including the presidential race between President Trump and Democrat, which as of Friday remains undecided.

A group called "Stop the Steal" that was organizing protests at vote-counting facilities across the nation was removed Thursday from Facebook, prior to the emergency enforcements going into place.

So let me get this straight. If you think an election was corrupt, and you want to organize your fellow citizens to look into that corruption and stop it, Facebook and Twitter (at least) will disappear you from the internet. Because having an opinion about the corrupt nature of our electoral system is unacceptable and dangerous and cannot be permitted? Even if 360,000 people agreed with you enough to join the group?

Democrat officials in PA communicating vote totals to Biden privately?

BreitbartDemocrat officials in Pennsylvania are “privately” speaking to the Biden campaign about potential margins of victory for the former vice president in the battleground state as counting remains underway, according to reports.

According to Politico’s Josh Bresnahan, these Democrat officials have told the Biden campaign that they believe the presidential hopeful will win the state by anywhere from 100,000 to 200,000 votes after all the counting is completed

Not sure this is illegal, but it smells improper.

Michigan ballots in 33 counties at risk

Western JournalAn apparent issue with the election infrastructure in one Michigan county resulted in a Republican candidate having a tally of only two votes Wednesday.

Now, it’s been revealed that the program at fault could be in use in dozens of other counties across the state.

That this issue has to be discovered after election day is terrifying.

And that the "issues" resulted in Republican candidates getting single-digit vote totals makes me wonder if they were deliberately created "issues".

And guess what? It's up to 47 counties now.

"Computer glitches" flipping races

Detroit Free PressA computer error led election officials in Oakland County to hand an upset victory Wednesday to a Democrat, only to switch the win back to an incumbent Republican a day later.

In Oakland County’s 15th county commission District -- representing Rochester and Rochester Hills -- the initial count gave a 104-vote margin to the Democrat, Melanie Hartman, amounting to a razor-thin majority of 50.08%.

A technical glitch. Sure.

Whistleblower claims Detroit election fraud

Just The NewsThe FBI is investigating allegations of election fraud in Detroit after a city worker stepped forward and claimed election workers were asked to backdate ballots that had come in after the election deadline had passed, multiple officials said.

A senior law enforcement official in Washington confirmed that an investigation was opened after the whistleblower's concerns were forwarded from the Michigan Republican Party. "The FBI is investigating," the official said.

It's unclear if this is the same individual featured in the Project Veritas video. However, I understand the Veritas video to refer to a postmark (time sent) rather than a time received, and the worker to be a postal worker rather than an election worker. I get the feeling we are dealing with at least two whistleblowers in Detroit.

Project Veritas also has multiple whistleblowers in PA and at least one in NV. And let's not forget they already "stung" Ilhan Omar in Minnesota earlier this year; her election fraud scheme was exposed, but I haven't seen any reports of arrests.

They just keep finding ballots

BreitbartPostal workers discovered more than 1,000 ballots Thursday in Philadelphia facilities and another 300 in Pittsburgh, according to Politico.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) is rushing to deliver the uncounted votes to election officials before the deadline on Friday, the outlet said.

“The Postal Service has been ordered by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan to report on the results of twice-daily sweeps for election mail, with a particular emphasis on states that are still accepting ballots postmarked by Election Day,” the report continued:

These twice-daily sweeps have been ordered by Judge Sullivan, the same judge presiding over the Michael Flynn case, whose political and personal bias have by now been well established. The sweeps themselves, while troubling, are not necessarily illegal. That a judge ordered them preemptively for political reasons is questionable. That such sweeps continue days after the election, allowing more and more ballots to be found and intermingled with legitimate ballots, is very problematic.

After all, why would multiple sweeps be needed here? If they are in the mail system by the deadline, wouldn't they be found in the first sweep? If they are not found in the first sweep but ARE found in a later sweep... doesn't that mean they were likely added in between those sweeps?

FBI investigating discarded military ballots in PA

Department of JusticeThe FBI has recovered a number of documents relating to military ballots that had been improperly opened by your elections staff, and had the ballots removed and discarded, or removed and placed separately from the envelope containing confidential voter information and attestation. Specifically, a total of nine (9) military ballots were discovered to have been discarded. Seven (7) of those ballots when discovered by investigators were outside of any envelope. Those ballots were all cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump. One (1) of those seven (7) ballots was able to be identified to an envelope that was recovered, and thereby potentially tied to a specific voter. Two (2) military ballots that had been discarded were previously recovered by elections staff, reinserted into what appeared to be their appropriate envelopes, and then resealed. Therefore, the votes cast on those two (2) ballots are unknown. Thus, is appears that three (3) of the nine (9) recovered ballots can be potentially attributed to specific voters. Six (6) of the ballots were simply removed and discarded, and cannot be attributed to a specific voter at this time.

In addition to the military ballots and envelopes that were discarded and recovered as detailed above, investigators recovered four (4) apparently official, bar-coded, absentee ballot envelopes that were empty. Two (2) of those envelopes had the completed attestations and signatures on the reverse side. One (1) envelope with a handwritten return address was blank on the reverse side. The fourth empty envelope contains basic location information and the words “affirmation enclosed” on the reverse side. The majority of the recovered materials were found in an outside dumpster.

An investigation is meaningless. No one has any faith the FBI or DOJ will follow through. Arrests, indictments, convictions.

About that voter fraud that doesn't exist...

Daily WireTexas state officials announced late on Friday afternoon that they have charged a social worker with 134 felony counts of election fraud and other related charges.

“Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced that his Election Fraud Unit assisted the Limestone County Sheriff and District Attorney in charging Kelly Reagan Brunner, a social worker in the Mexia State Supported Living Center (SSLC), with 134 felony counts of purportedly acting as an agent and of election fraud,” the state said in a statement. “State Supported Living Centers serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Brunner submitted voter registration applications for 67 residents without their signature or effective consent, while purporting to act as their agent.”

Texas isn't a swing state, so this doesn't matter much at the moment. But it is things like this that help Texas avoid becoming a swing state. There are consequences for playing games with votes here.

21,000 dead voters

Free BeaconAn election watchdog has found 21,000 dead individuals still on Pennsylvania voter rolls in the final weeks of the 2020 election.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation, an election integrity group, says 92 percent of the registrants died more than a year ago. The group also says there is evidence of voting activity after death. The findings were mentioned in an amended lawsuit against the Pennsylvania Department of State over its failure to maintain accurate voter rolls.

The complaint further claims 114 individuals registered to vote after death, and hundreds of votes were cast by deceased individuals in the 2016 and 2018 elections.

So many problems.

Reminder: Minnesota vote fraud

Project Veritas exposed Minnesota vote fraud. So far, nothing has happened to Ilhan Omar. No word of arrests, investigations, anything. Apparently, Minnesota has a tradition of vote fraud.
