Electronic Voting, Voter Fraud, and Other Election Day Issues

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Timely news and commentary:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Riverside, California registrar mails 5,000 voters duplicate ballots.  [Scroll down] Nothing to see here, little technical glitch, just throw that extra ballot away, and move along.  They've got this.  Elections are always clean in California.  Problem over, right?  Not exactly.  Start with the technical claim that the second ballots sent cannot be counted.  On Twitter, one person did argue that such things aren't exactly as cut-and-dried as the Riverside County registrar of the voters, Rebecca Spencer, claims:  [Tweet]  If that's true, a great gaslight is going up about the security of the mail balloting system and whether two votes can be cast from one voter.  One wonders what becomes of the thrown-away ballots, assuming the duplicates are thrown away, as well as those that are cast twice.  The L.A. Times, though, takes the registrar's word for it that the problem is all fixed.

Body Cam Footage Shows Police Cracking Down On Illegal Voting In Florida Leaving Perps Dumbfounded.  In April, Governor Desantis signed a bill creating the Florida Office of Election Crimes and Security, an election police force.  This was instituted as Republicans increased their efforts to crack down on what they believe was widespread fraud after the 2020 Presidential elections.  Desantis announced 20 arrests claiming these citizens had illegally voted for various reasons.  However, as the Times shows, there has been a lot of confusion, particularly with citizens who claim election officials had told them they were eligible to vote.  Body-worn camera footage recorded by local police captured the confusion and outrage of Hillsborough County residents who found themselves in handcuffs for allegedly illegally casting a ballot following investigations by Gov. Ron DeSantis' new Office of Election Crimes and Security.  The voters caught in the "gotcha" arrests are former felons, most of them Black. "Voter fraud?  Y'all said anybody with a felony could vote, man," Tony Patterson said as police arrested him.

Is It Possible The Chinese Really Did Hack Our Elections?  I do a lot of speaking on election integrity.  I say frequently[,] while there are endless problems with the security of our elections[,] I don't believe the Chinese "hacked" the 2020 election.  Maybe I was wrong.  A number of weeks ago True the Vote broke the story that a company called Konnech in Michigan was storing data on American election workers on servers in China.  True the Vote leaders Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips were, of course, ridiculed by the so-called mainstream press.  Then, Los Angeles arrested the head of Konnech and charged him with violations of U.S. laws on the handling of personally identifiable information — by storing it on servers in China.  The ridicule stopped. Even the New York Times had to issue a retraction.  It has gotten much worse since then.  Konnech wasn't just storing data in China.  Konnech was using contractors inside China to do work in the United States on American election systems.

Republicans Sue Pennsylvania Officials Who Said They'll Accept Mail-In Ballots Without Dates.  Republicans are suing Pennsylvania officials after the state's top election official said mail-in ballots without dates will be accepted, in contravention of state law.  A group of Pennsylvania voters, the Republican National Committee, and the Pennsylvania Republican Party filed the lawsuit with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, asking justices to quickly declare illegal the guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of State regarding ballots that don't have dates.  Acting Pennsylvania Secretary of State Leigh Chapman said on Oct. 11 that "every county is expected to include undated ballots in their official returns for the Nov. 8 election, consistent with the Department of State's guidance."  The guidance, last updated in September, states that "any ballot-return envelope that is undated or dated with an incorrect date but that has been timely received by the county shall be included" in the vote count.

San Luis, AZ Democrat Ballot Trafficker Gets 30 Days In Jail.  Guillermina Fuentes has been sentenced to 30 days in the Yuma County Detention Center after she was caught on video trafficking ballots in San Luis.  The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Guillermina Fuentes finally pleaded guilty more than 15 months after she was indicted on four felony charges.  The heavier charges of Forgery and Conspiracy were dropped in Fuentes' plea agreement, and she only pleaded guilty to one minor count of ballot abuse.  We later reported that prosecutors were seeking a one-year prison sentence for Fuentes' voter fraud.

Score One for True the Vote.  Konnech is an election software company which provides Poll Chief software for election worker management.  It is used in a number of counties, including DeKalb in Georgia, Washoe County, Nevada; Fairfax County, Virginia; Detroit, Michigan; Los Angeles County, California; Prince William County, Virginia; Johnson County, Kansas; and Allen County, Indiana.  True the Vote, which seeks to ensure election integrity, investigated the company and was sued by it, alleging unauthorized access and "distribution of material gotten through such access."  It claimed in its complaint that "All of Konnech's U.S. customer data is secured and stored exclusively on protected computers located within the United States."  Upon its allegations it received an immediate temporary restraining order.

The Left Is Pushing To Reshape Voting Systems Across America — Here's How.  The left's latest ploy to remake elections is a complicated scheme called "ranked-choice voting" (RCV).  Advocates claim it strengthens "majority rule" and leads to a healthier democracy, and they've pushed dozens of municipalities and two states to use it.  Nevada is their latest target.  Voters there will decide on election day if they want to join in this nationwide experiment.  If experience is any judge, they'd be wise to sit this one out.  If the measure known as Question 3 eventually passes (it would have to pass again in 2024), Nevada's traditional election system will be upended.  Party primaries will be replaced with a California-style "jungle primary."  The five candidates who get the most votes will advance to the general and ranked-choice voting would be used to determine the final winner.  That sounds simple, but RCV is far more complex than its proponents make it out to be.

Election Software CEO Surrenders to LA Authorities; Prosecutors Allege 'Massive Data Breach'.  Los Angeles prosecutors on Oct. 14 accused the CEO of a Michigan-based election software company of being involved in a "massive" data breach affecting at least thousands of victims, including minors.  Eugune Yu, 64, who heads Konnech, a company that provides software to electoral districts for the management of poll workers, was charged with the felony crime of embezzlement of public funds.  He appeared in a Los Angeles County court on Oct. 14.  The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office has accused Yu of stealing personal identifying information of poll workers.  The office alleged that such data was stored on servers in China, in violation of Konnech's contract with Los Angeles County.  Superior Court of Los Angeles County Judge Victoria Wilson ruled that Yu be released on a $500,000 bond and remain in house arrest until his next hearing, which is set for Nov. 17.  Yu was ordered to remain in Los Angeles County and wear an ankle monitor.

Arizona AG asks FBI, IRS to investigate election integrity watchdog True the Vote.  Republican Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has asked the IRS and FBI to review the financials of the conservative nonprofit group True The Vote for allegedly raising money on false statements about widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.  In a letter obtained Friday by Fox News Digital, Chief Special Agent Reggie Grigsby of the Special Investigations Section for Brnovich's office accused True The Vote (TTV) of repeatedly failing to provide promised information about alleged ballot stuffing and voter fraud to his office while publicly asserting they did so in order to raise funds.

Oops!
GOP US Senate Candidate's Name Omitted from Ballots in Illinois County.  Republican US Senate Candidate Kathy Salvi released a statement this week after the Schulyer County ballots omitted her name.  [Text of Ms. Salvi's statement omitted for brevity.]

Republican US Senate candidate's name not on ballots distributed in Illinois county.  Some early voters have already cast their ballots in Schuyler County, Illinois, despite Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kathy Salvi's name not being listed as a choice.  Instead of Salvi's name, the name of her defeated primary opponent Peggy Hubbard is listed on the ballot as an option.  Salvi won the seven-way Republican primary on June 28 by a significant margin.  Salvi, who seeks to unseat the incumbent Democrat Sen. Tammy Duckworth, is demanding accountability, claiming that the proposed remedial efforts do "not solve the most pressing problem of election integrity and transparency" and that voters have "been potentially disenfranchised."  She noted that the issue was brought to her attention on October 11.  "Ballots drafted by the Schuyler County Board of Elections, and approved by the Illinois State Board of Elections, incorrectly listed one of my primary opponents as the Republican nominee for the United States Senate," said Salvi in a statement issued on Wednesday [10/12/2022].

Voter Fraud Comes in All Shapes and Sizes, But Can Sometimes Swing Elections.  Voter fraud is surprisingly common.  Prosecutions for it can range from small-scale cases, like someone with two residences voting in both states, to large-scale crimes that changed electoral outcomes, affected hundreds or thousands of votes, and ranged across multiple states.  An extensive voter fraud database maintained by the Heritage Foundation has logged 1384 proven cases of voter fraud, resulting in 1191 criminal convictions, 48 civil penalties, and 103 defendants ending up in diversion programs.  And the foundation says the list doesn't come close to being comprehensive.  The database, which goes back to 1992, lists 19 elections overturned due to fraud, 16 of those since 2000.

How Winners are Losing in American Elections.  Who exactly are the winners of this new and confusing electoral system called ranked-choice voting (RCV)?  It's not the thousands of voters that show up to the polls in RCV elections only to have their votes thrown out.  The winners of RCV are partisans and special interests who use the system's design to manipulate election outcomes and undermine states' efforts to safeguard election integrity.  Take Maine, for example.  In the 2018 2nd Congressional District election, Jared Golden, the Democrat, was declared the winner despite losing in the first round of tabulation with 45.58 percent to the Republican Bruce Poliquin's 46.33 percent.  To declare Golden the winner, more than 8,000 votes were systematically thrown out.

Election Watchdog Probes Colorado Offer of Voter Registration to 30,000 Noncitizens.  An election watchdog group is seeking more information about why Colorado sent 30,000 postcards to noncitizens, inviting them to register to vote.  Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold admitted Monday that her office sent out the notices and called it an error that she is trying to address.  The Public Interest Legal Foundation announced Wednesday that it has made an inspection request to Griswold's office under the National Voter Registration Act for documents specifying how the office filters out noncitizens from receiving such notices, how the office caught the error, and listing noncitizens who were sent the postcards.  "Noncitizens cannot register to vote," J. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, said in a prepared statement.  "We have asked Colorado to document instances where the checks they presumably have in place to prevent aliens from registering actually worked.  If we don't receive the documents we requested, we will exercise rights under federal law."

Pennsylvania to count undated ballots, election official says, despite US Supreme Court ruling.  A top election official in Pennsylvania says the state will disregard the U.S. Supreme Court's guidance on counting mail-in ballots arriving in envelopes with typos or incorrect dates, saying that the state's Commonwealth Court has already established the practice as licit.  Pennsylvania's election laws have historically required voters to include a signature and date on the outside of return envelopes when voting by mail.  However, acting Secretary of State Leigh Chapman announced that Pennsylvania election officials should continue counting ballots that arrive with improperly filled-out envelopes, in accordance with the Commonwealth Court's previous ruling on the matter.

Did Inflated Voter Rolls And Botched Signature Review Wrongly Thwart Recall Of Woke L.A. DA? Lawsuit Says Yes.  After its push to oust L.A. County District Attorney George Gascon failed because nearly 200,000 petition signatures were invalidated, the campaign to recall Gascon announced it is filing for injunctive relief after an initial review showed 39 percent of the signatures invalidated by the L.A. County registrar were likely wrongfully rejected.  "The initial review of invalidated signatures demonstrates the Registrar's counting process was seriously flawed, resulting in substantial errors, the wrongful invalidation of many valid signatures, and the disenfranchisement of thousands of Los Angeles County Voters," the campaign wrote in a press release. [...] Examples of improper invalidation by the registrar include:
  •   Signatures "invalidated as 'non-matching' despite showing substantial similarities to the signatures on file."
  •   Signatures invalidated as "not registered" despite the signature belonging to a registered voter.
  •   Signatures "incorrectly invalidated as 'duplicates' without the Registrar counting at least one of the alleged duplicates as required by law."
  •   Signatures invalidated over confusion regarding changes to voters' addresses.

Non-Partisan Elections Are Non-Existent.  In today's very partisan environment, where Democrats and Republicans have completely opposed views on critical issues, it is imperative to know the political registration of all people running for local offices — especially city councils and school boards.  For most Americans, the political party they are registered with is an introduction to their personal values and core beliefs.  Learning a city council and school board candidate's party affiliation should be the first step in reviewing their bona fides.  However, we can no longer assume party affiliation is enough information.  For instance, Liz Cheney is a registered Republican and former Democrat-now-Independent Tulsi Gabbard is a registered Democrat.  Which one would you vote for?  Plus, many Republicans have switched to no party preference (NPP) or Independent.  Once you know their party affiliation, there's more to do since the Republican candidate might not share your conservative values.  The second step is learning their positions on major issues.  For incumbents, it means reviewing their voting record.

Another voting registration 'accident' with 30,000 non-citizens mailed notices, this time in Colorado.  There's a reason voters don't trust elections as honest mechanisms anymore, and a Democrat secretary of state in Colorado has shown us all why. [...] Ahhh, a mistake.  Unwitting.  Accidental.  The staff did it.  And somehow, it's only Democrats who do this.  A basic function of a registrar of voters is to maintain clean voting rolls.  The staff knew that citizens and noncitizens were all mixed in in the driver's license database, yet they chose to ignore that issue and mailed away to let the illegals know they too could vote.  If you were an illegal and constantly heard news about the trend of getting noncitizens to vote in big cities, why wouldn't you think the state of Colorado wanted you to register to vote, particularly since the notice was printed in ultra-accommodating Spanish?  The citizenship requirement was just fine print, and in any case, everyone's a citizen of somewhere, including, as Democrats say, "undocumented citizens." Non-citizens, of course, and particularly illegals, tend to vote Democrat.

Is This the Beginning of the End for George Soros?  On September 30, U.S. district judge Steven Jones threw out the lawsuit filed in 2018 by Stacey Abrams and her political action committee, Fair Fight Georgia.  The Epoch Times reported that the lawsuit alleged election irregularities, and Judge Jones ruled that "although Georgia's election system is not perfect, the challenged practices violate neither the constitution nor the [Voting Rights Amendment]."  However, Abrams was still able to reinstate 22,000 rejected provisional and absentee ballots after the 2018 election.  This judge was on to something when he said Georgia's election system isn't perfect.  Here are just a few of the inconsistencies from the 2020 election you can find documentation of on the VoterGA website:
  •   There are six sworn affidavits of counterfeit mail-in ballots in Fulton Co. election results scaling into the tens of thousands.
  •   All 350,000+ original in-person ballot images in Fulton are missing in violation of federal and state retention law.
  •   All 393,000+ original ballot images in Cobb are missing in violation of federal and state retention law.
This is also not the only legal action that Abrams has initiated over elections.  First, we have the now-infamous consent decree, which stemmed from a lawsuit filed by Abrams prior to the 2020 election, making it nearly impossible to verify signatures on ballots.

Supreme Court Backs Republican Judge, Rules Pennsylvania Mail In Ballots Must Be Dated.  On Tuesday, the Supreme Court vacated an appeals court decision requiring Pennsylvania to count mail-in ballots even if they were in an undated envelope.  Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ketanji Brown Jackson wrote, "The judgment is vacated, and the case is remanded to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit with instructions to dismiss the case as moot[.]"  According to the Epoch Times, the justices sided with the Republican candidate for a judgeship, David Ritter.  Ritter lost his 2021 race after 257 un-dated ballots were counted.  Ritter was running for Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas and attempted to have the votes thrown out, but in a ruling earlier this year, the Supreme Court denied Ritter's request.  The Supreme Courts Tuesday ruling will not change the outcome of Ritter's previous loss, but it will set a precedent for the upcoming midterm elections.

Voting in Arizona in 2022.  Though I am not partisan, and have always distrusted Republicans as much as Democrats, this year my choices are very partisan.  The Democratic Party has become very very corrupt.  The best thing Americans can do to clean up that party is to throw out as many of its elected officials as possible.  At that point the party will be faced with a stark choice:  shift gears, change leadership, or die (allowing a new party to replace it).  With any of these options, the voters would be provided with a new choice in future elections, coming from a different direction.  I am also making recommendations in connection with statewide and local propositions, several of which are hidden mines designed to eliminate what little election security we presently have.  Voters must know this.

Supreme Court rules in favor of GOP in Pennsylvania mail-ballot case.  The Supreme Court sided with a Republican candidate who lost his bid for judgeship in Pennsylvania, ordering the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to toss out its ruling that allowed the counting of mail-in ballots in the race.  Justices on the high court vacated the 3rd Circuit ruling at the request of David Ritter, who ran in 2021 to be a judge on the Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas.  He lost to his Democratic rival Zachary Cohen by five votes after 257 absentee ballots without dates on the envelope were counted.  The decision to remand the case does not affect the outcome of the 2021 race.  But by remanding the case, the high court held that the 3rd Circuit ruling cannot be used as precedent in the three states covered by the federal appellate court, which includes Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey.

Konnech Election Compromise, CCP Infiltration, CEO Arrest, True The Vote and Recent Deep State Misinformation Efforts.  When the FBI/DOJ need to get out in front of an issue they use the New York Times (and Politico) to establish the defensive and offensive narrative.  [The State Dept use CNN, and the CIA use the Washington post] These are constants in an ever-changing world of information warfare.  On October 3rd New York Times journalist Stuart Thompson writes a hit piece against Catherine Englebrecht and True The Vote, written to cast their election review efforts as conspiracy theories.  24 hours later, October 4th, the CEO of Konnech — a company specializing in proprietary PollChief software to manage election workers — was arrested.  Konnech Corporation Chief Executive Officer Eugene Yu was arrested for exploiting access to U.S. election data, including election worker information, and transferring the files to China.

Election denial or Election Fraud Denial?  The Democrats are proposing the Electoral Count Reform and Presidential Transition Improvement Act of 2022.  This is in answer to the Republicans questioning the election results of the 2020 Presidential election.  This is a rather questionable action given that the Republicans questioned the 2020 election because of obvious irregularities.  These occurred in the process leading up to the election day as well as the shenanigans that occurred the night of the election and in the week that followed. [...] The concern now is what are the Democrats and some Republicans planning to do about it.  They call everyone who questions the results "election deniers."  They have convenient election amnesia because it has always been the Democrats that objected to the presidential election results.  This occurred in Presidential elections in 2000, 2004, and 2016.

Colorado 'Accidentally' Sends Out 30,000 Voter Registration Cards to Non-Citizens.  In a move sure to raise a few eyebrows, Colorado has "accidentally" sent out 30,000 voter registration cards to non-citizens.  That's according to a report from Colorado Public Radio.  According to the outlet, the 30,000 cards were sent to non-citizens because of a mix-up with the formatting of the query involving DMV records.  In Colorado, illegal immigrants are able to obtain a driver's license, which was apparently the nexus of the issue.

14 Precincts In Alaska Ban Voting Machines: Votes Will Be Hand-Counted.  Voters across the country continue to raise questions about voting tabulation machines.  Concerns about voting machines were only worsened this week as the CEO of an election software company, Konnech Corporations, was arrested for stealing poll worker data in Michigan.  The concerns over voting tabulation machines have led to calls for machine voting to be suspended until more thorough investigations are done to ensure that data is not being mishandled and that they accurately tabulate votes.  In a significant move that could lead to similar decisions being made across the country, the Matanuska-Susitna Borough Assembly passed an ordinance that will prohibit the use of voting tabulation machines and make poll workers hand-tabulate ballots for the upcoming midterm elections.

How Different Would America Be Today if Trump was Still President?  This is the easiest column I've ever written.  It's so simple to imagine what America would be like today if Trump was still President.  What a tragedy that we allowed a brain-dead, feeble, confused, old man with dementia and diapers, and his radical, anti-American, globalist, communist handlers to destroy the greatest country in world history — in only 22 months.  Let's start with the obvious.  How did this happen?  The 2020 election was stolen.  That's how they removed Trump from office and installed a man who doesn't know who he is, where he is, or what he's doing.  A man who can't put 2 sentences together, and who can't attract more than 20 people in concentric circles to his speeches, yet they want us to suspend reality and believe he got 81 million votes — the most in history.  Bizarre.

Election Integrity Watchdog Files Lawsuits Over Millions of Cases of Voter Registration Fraud.  Conservative election law nonprofit Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) filed six lawsuits in six Minnesota counties over 515 duplicate registrants, as reported by Just the News.  They also found that 3.1 million registered voters in New York state were missing personal identification information, including driver's license numbers and Social Security numbers, which makes it difficult for the state to accurately maintain its voter rolls — precisely the objective on the Democrat side of the ledger in Democrat-controlled states.

Watchdog files lawsuits over voter registration duplicates, finds millions lacking required ID.  With midterm elections a month away, an election integrity watchdog has filed multiple lawsuits in Minnesota over duplicate registered voters while also finding millions of voter registrations in New York missing personal identifying information.  Public Interest Legal Foundation, a conservative election law nonprofit, filed six lawsuits in Minnesota counties over 515 duplicate registrants.  The lawsuits were filed in Nicollet, Dakota, Hennepin, Olmsted, Todd and Ramsey counties.  PILF also found that 3.1 million registered voters in New York were missing personal identifying information, such as a driver's license number or Social Security number, which makes it difficult for the state to accurately maintain its voter rolls.  Under the federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA), states are prohibited "from accepting a voter registration unless the voter registration contains a unique identifying number such as the last four digits of a social security number or driver's license number," according to a PILF press release.

RNC, AZ GOP sue Maricopa County over poll workers; board chair calls it 'absurd'.  Arizona's Republican Party and the Republican National Committee have sued Maricopa County officials over poll worker staffing and alleged failure to produce requested records.  The suit claims that central count boards in the county have unequal numbers of Democrats and Republicans.  It also alleges Maricopa County has not fully complied with records requests about poll workers.

Delaware Supreme Court Rules Mail-In Voting Unconstitutional and Strikes Down Same-Day Registration.  The Delaware Supreme Court ruled on Friday that mail-in voting is unconstitutional in the state.  [Tweets]

Supreme Court strikes down vote-by-mail, same-day registration.  In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court of Delaware has ruled the state's mail-in voting and same-day voter registration statutes unconstitutional.  Neither will be allowed in the Nov. 8 general election.  The ruling, which came just one day after oral arguments, is a major defeat for Gov. John Carney and Delaware Democrats.  In an abbreviated order, the court said the vote-by-mail statute "impermissibly expands the categories of absentee voters identified in Article V, Section 4A of the Delaware Constitution."  As for the same-day registration statute, the court said it conflicts with Article V, Section 4 of the Constitution.  The Supreme Court published its decision in a 3-page abbreviated order so as to allow as much time as possible for election officials and voters to communicate and understand changes to the upcoming election.  Traditional absentee voting is not affected by the court's decision.

Wisconsin Judge Rules That Electors Cannot Change Ballots After Voting.  In a win for election integrity, absentee voters can no longer change their vote after submitting their ballots, a Wisconsin judge has ruled.  As previously reported, Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (RITE) filed a lawsuit against the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) for its unlawful guidance that allowed absentee voters to change their vote after their ballot had already been cast.  The guidance also allows election officials to "spoil" the old ballot on behalf of the voter, creating an environment ripe for voter fraud and confusion.  Such a directive violated Wisconsin statute, which states that a voter possesses the exclusive authority to spoil his absentee ballot before it is submitted, not after.  RITE argued that the guidance was against the law and could create opportunities for fraud and confusion.  Waukesha County Circuit Judge Brad Schimel agreed with RITE and ordered WEC to rescind its guidance on Wednesday.  The Democratic National Committee had joined WEC in fighting the lawsuit.

Election Software CEO Arrested For Storing Data In China Caught With Luggage On Way To MI Airport.  Earlier this week, we reported about a significant arrest that took place in LA County, CA, related to the 2020 elections.  On September 8, a reporter from 100 Percent Fed Up attended "The Pit," where True the Votes' Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips dropped a bombshell about the arrest of Eugene Yu, CEO of Konnech, an E. Lansing, MI-based company responsible for the software used in managing elections in several states that stored personal information of over 1 million Americans in its database.  Konnech, much like Dominion, almost immediately sued True the Vote as a way to silence them and keep them from speaking out about the bombshell information they provided to reporters at The Pit related to Konnech and the unlawful transfer of information from America to China.

Election Software CEO Arrested Over Data Theft, Storing Data on Servers in China.  The head of Konnech Corp., a Michigan-based software company, was arrested on Oct. 4 for allegedly stealing and storing personal data of Los Angeles County election workers on servers in China.  Konnech CEO Eugene Yu, 51, was arrested in Michigan on charges of stealing "the personal identifying information" of Los Angeles County election workers, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.  Investigators also seized computer hard drives and other digital data relevant to the case.  The office stated that it would seek Yu's extradition to Los Angeles. [...] Under the contract, Konnech was supposed to securely maintain the data and only provide access to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.  But investigators found that the company stored the data on servers in China.

Lawsuit: Michigan Secretary of State Broke The Law With Rogue Restrictions On Poll Challengers.  Even among the most extreme Democratic secretaries of state, Michigan's Jocelyn Benson stands out. [...] When a $12 million grant from Mark Zuckerberg — "Zuckbucks" — was funneled to Michigan through the left-wing Center for Election Innovation and Research (ostensibly to help government officials administer elections), the money did not go to the state but to Benson's nonprofit, the Michigan Center for Election Law and Administration.  While supposedly nonpartisan, this nonprofit used nearly all of the $12 million grant to pay Democratic consulting firms for "election security."  Benson also padded Michigan's voter rolls right before the election, sending out automatic voter registration forms to all eligible Michigan citizens.  As a result of the mailer, 114,000 people were added to the rolls.  Benson has not escaped scrutiny for her behavior.  She's been the subject of multiple lawsuits for neglecting to clean Michigan's voter rolls.  But most recently, Benson's come under fire for issuing last-minute guidance restricting the ability of Michiganders to oversee their local elections.

Arrest made in alleged election worker data breach; info stored in China.  The top executive of an election logistics software company that has clashed with groups alleging voter fraud was arrested Tuesday over the alleged theft of Los Angeles County poll workers' personally identifiable information, which investigators said was illegally stored in China.  Konnech Corp.  CEO Eugene Yu was arrested in Michigan and held on suspicion of stealing data from hundreds of poll workers.  His company had a contract with Los Angeles County to maintain the data and only provide access to U.S. citizens and permanent residents, but Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon's office said the company stored the information on servers in China.  Konnech's software is used to manage the nitty-gritty of holding elections, like scheduling poll workers.

[A] Large Garbage Bag [was] Used To Transfer Stacks of Absentee Ballots From [a] Detroit Drop Box.  Several months ago, the Gateway Pundit obtained surveillance video footage from 19 absentee ballot drop boxes in Detroit from the 2020 election. 100 Percent Fed Up began working with MC4EI (Michigan Citizens For Election Integrity), who poured through 16,000 hours of video footage to identify potential criminal activity that took place during the 2020 election.  So far, we've been able to share multiple cases of suspicious and possibly criminal activity taking place at several drop box locations.  From massive ballot drops of 40-50 ballots by individuals or teams of two individuals to hundreds of people taking photos of their hands dropping ballots into the drop boxes, to Dominion tabulators being delivered to a satellite voting center where top election officials say there are no tabulations taking place, we've been able to share a variety of suspicious activities taking place at Detroit satellite voting centers, that if Michigan had a law and order Attorney General or honest Secretary of State, would be under investigation.

Washington, DC, Democrats Approve Plan Allowing Illegal Aliens to Vote.  Democrats on the Washington, DC, City Council have approved a plan that would allow foreign nationals, including illegal aliens, to vote in local elections.  On Tuesday, the D.C. City Council voted 12-1 to advance a bill that will allow foreign nationals, regardless of if they have visas or are illegally in the United States, to vote in local elections such as school board races and mayoral elections.

Where Artificial Intelligence Can Expose Leftist Vote Fraud.  A.I. is a technology game two can play.  Remember those 2020 election voter rolls? [...] You've read the stories about the 23,000 Wisconsin voters using the same phone number and thousands of voters with "codes" that cannot be read by traditional computers as their voter IDs.  Our technology, Fractal Programming, found all that stuff for the Wisconsin voter team.  There was nothing "intelligent" in those data.  The only time we found anything coming close to the word "intelligent" was the lack of intelligence from secretaries of state, particularly Republicans.  There were the Alabama voters older than Genghis Khan, registered in 2020, who vote.  There were the Missouri voters registered in the Branson hotel.  There were the Texans who voted in person but their ballot later changed to absentee.  Remember that hapless Wisconsin voter whose voter ID was a single character, an apostrophe — such a small character that we thought it was a speck on our computer screen?  The original Wisconsin Fractal system grew almost overnight to a dozen or more states.  What was supposed to be a limited proof of concept exploded into the largest election database in the world — and that was only for 12 or 15 states.  We have the data for 25 more on deck.

Lawsuit: Wisconsin Elections Commission Let Electors Change Votes After Submitting Ballots.  Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections (RITE) filed a lawsuit against the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) last week over its unlawful guidance allowing absentee voters to change their votes after their ballots are cast.  In an Aug. 1, 2022, memorandum sent to all Wisconsin municipal clerks, WEC instructed that after a voter submits an absentee ballot, he can request to "spoil" that ballot and receive a new one if he changes his mind or makes a mistake.  Furthermore, in an Aug. 2 memo, WEC allows clerks to "invalidate" a "spoiled ballot" on behalf of the voter.  Such guidance violates Wisconsin statute, which states that a voter possesses the exclusive authority to spoil his absentee ballot before it is submitted, not after.  If the voter spoils his absentee ballot before he casts it, he must return the ballot to the clerk (who then destroys it) and request a new one.  With WEC's new guidance, however, a clerk may invalidate a "spoiled" ballot on behalf of the voter, thereby increasing the potential for fraud or abuse in the absentee voting process.

Petition Filed with the US Supreme Court Against Dominion, Facebook and CFCL in "A Case of Great National Importance".  A group of individuals filed a class action lawsuit against Dominion Voting Systems, Facebook, CTCL and Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, which is now going to the US Supreme Court.  This group claims that the defendants worked together with government employees in a concerted and coordinated effort to change the results of the 2020 Presidential Election in ways that go against the US Constitution.  Here is a timeline of how they got here.

YouTube restricts video of Dems, critics saying 2016 election was hacked, then backtracks.  YouTube cracked down on a video compilation of Democrats and media pundits questioning the legitimacy of former President Donald Trump's 2016 election victory — then overturned the move amid backlash on Thursday.  The TK News video — put together to highlight the partisan double standard over election denialism — had been tagged to run with limited or no ads, depriving the creators of vital revenue, TK's Matt Taibbi said in a Substack post.  The video includes clips of prominent liberals repeatedly calling Trump's presidency "illegitimate" and using the word "hacked" to describe the 2016 election.  "After manually reviewing your video, we've confirmed that it isn't suitable for all advertisers," the Google-owned video giant wrote to producer Matt Orfalea, according to the post.  "As a result, it will continue to run limited or no ads ... Your video remains playable and is still eligible to earn subscription revenue from YouTube Premium."

Ex-Democratic congressman sentenced to prison in years-long Pennsylvania election fraud scheme.  Expelled former Democratic congressman Michael "Ozzie" Myers has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for federal election fraud dating back to 2014, the Justice Department said Tuesday, and was immediately taken into custody.  Myers, 79, pleaded guilty in June to conspiracy to deprive voters of civil rights, bribery, obstruction of justice, falsification of voting records, and conspiring to illegally vote in a federal election as part of scams to stuff ballot boxes for certain Democratic candidates in Pennsylvania elections between 2014 and 2018, the DOJ said in a news release.  Prosecutors said some of the candidates were running to be judges and had hired Myers, who would use portions of "consulting fees" from his clients to pay others to interfere with election results.

Flint, Michigan Clerk Resigns After Elections Group Calls Out Lopsided Number Of Democrat Poll Watchers.  Flint, Michigan's longtime city clerk is retiring after an election integrity group sent a letter to her office demanding she balance out the number of Democrat and Republican election inspectors.  On Sept. 6, Pure Integrity Michigan Elections (PIME) and attorney Erick Kaardal of the Thomas More Society sent a demand letter to Flint and City Clerk Inez Brown threatening legal action if they do not balance out the number of partisan poll watchers before the November general election.  As previously reported, during Flint's Aug. 2 primary, the city hired 422 Democrats compared to just 27 Republican election inspectors — in direct violation of a Michigan state statute that requires equal representation of party election inspectors.

In Pennsylvania, Cleaner Elections Hinge on 3 Court Cases.  Pennsylvania essentially has a one-voter, one-ballot rule, meaning election law requires mailed and absentee ballots to be returned either by mail or in person by the voter to whom it belongs.  State law stipulates that each voter is allowed to place only his or her own ballot in a drop box, not the ballots of other voters.  However, according to the America First Legal Foundation, a security camera captured more than 330 individuals depositing multiple ballots into drop boxes during the state's primary election in June.  Under Pennsylvania law, this would make the ballots void and invalid, the legal foundation notes. [...] The legal foundation is asking the court to require the county election board to see to it that all drop boxes are monitored in person to ensure that they are used by only one person at a time delivering his or her own ballot.

Insidious voter fraud.  In March 2022, The Democrat-dominated Massachusetts State Legislature passed a new law that gives drivers' licenses to illegal immigrants and automatically registers them to vote at the time they get their license.  This law, in addition to all the other bad things it cements into place, creates an entirely new pool of bogus Democrat voters.  These people will be on the official voters' rolls — so they can vote in elections — but they're not U.S. citizens, and so they are technically not qualified to vote.  Conservatives went wild.  This law was never voted on by the people — it was created and pushed through by Democrat politicians to keep Democrats in power with several thousand new fake voters.  Opponents started an uphill grassroots signature campaign to get the measure onto the November ballot so the law can be voted on by the whole electorate.

Barr Lied! FOIA Requests Reveal There Were No DOJ Investigations on Election Fraud After 2020 Election as Bill Barr Claims.  In December 2020, US Attorney General Bill Barr [...] said there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election, defying President Donald Trump's ongoing efforts to reverse the results.  Barr repeated this claim several times since leaving office as President Trump's Attorney General.  Now there is proof that Bill Barr is and was lying.

The DOJ Is Hiding Biden's Voter Registration Plan.  The Justice Department (DOJ) has refused to release its mandated strategic plan about ways to champion voter registration and participation, according to the Foundation for Government Accountability.  President Joe Biden's March 2021 Executive Order on Promoting Access to Voting required every federal agency head to submit a plan within 200 days outlining methods the agency could use to promote voter registration and participation.  A Federal District Court decided earlier in summer 2022 that the DOJ must release documents on this matter to the FGA by Sept. 8, but the department withheld the plan, citing executive privilege, and revealed heavily redacted versions of other documents, the FGA revealed.  FGA President and CEO Tarren Bragdon said Americans "deserve to know if the Biden Administration's unprecedented action is fair and non-partisan."  He argued the DOJ must reveal the documents to ensure fair elections.

Retaining election records from the 2020 election.  Did the number of people who voted in the November 3, 2020 general election equal the number of ballots cast?  A recent research study by the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) says the records that would answer the question do not exist.  Records are supposed to be maintained to determine how many people have voted in an election and how many ballots have been cast.  Section 20701 of the Civil Rights Act of 1960 provides that election officials have to keep all records of federal primary, special, or general elections for 22 months after the date of the election.  Any willful violation can be punished by a fine of up to $1,000 or imprisonment for one year, or both.  Section 20702 provides similar penalties for the willful theft, destruction, concealment, mutilation, or alteration of any such record.  The purpose of these sections is to make it more difficult to hide election fraud.  How good of a job are election officials doing in retaining these records?

Why Is the DOJ Trying to Destroy Mike Lindell, the Pillow Guy?  [Scroll down] [Mike] Lindell was tracked down by FBI agents, corralled at a Hardee's of all places, served a subpoena, and ordered to turn over his cell phone. [...] It's impossible to give Merrick Garland's Department of Justice even the slightest benefit of the doubt in this day and age, as they have subpoenaed virtually half the free world and raided former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate on a seemingly endless fishing expedition.  Pillow Guy's story is equally murky; there are a lot of suspicions and dark insinuations thrown about by the FBI, but little in the way of facts that make you go, "oh man! Lindell really crossed the line on that one!"  Without boring the heck out of you, I'll try to sum it up quickly:  Lindell has been an outspoken critic of the 2020 presidential election and has regularly said he believes the outcome was fraudulent.  This would appear to be his worst crime.  But did he breach voting data machines?

Constitution Day: Liberty Once Lost May be Lost Forever.  [Scroll down] Frequent elections established by the Constitution provided yet another important mechanism to limit the extent and duration of government incompetence and corruption.  This also meant that the most sacred responsibility of citizenship established by the Constitution was and is the right of the people to vote and decide who shall govern.  This combination of limiting governmental power and maximizing peoples' rights makes the U.S. Constitution unique — the longest-running constitutional democratic republic in human history.  Nevertheless, when determined and dishonest people manipulate elections to fix outcomes to install people who can be compromised or to determine who gets power, any constitution can be fundamentally undermined and circumvented, causing disaster for the people.

Lawsuit Asking Benson to Clean Up Voter Roll Upheld.  The U.S. Western District Court of Michigan denied Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson's effort to dismiss the Public Interest Legal Foundation's (PILF) lawsuit for failing to remove deceased registrants from the state's voter roll.  In addition, the court denied the motions to intervene by the Detroit/Downriver Chapter of the A. Philip Randolph Institute and the Michigan Alliance for Retired Americans, and Rise, Inc.  In November 2021, the foundation filed a federal lawsuit against Secretary of State Benson for failure to remove 25,975 deceased registrants from the voter rolls.  The Foundation notified the Secretary of State about these deceased registrants one year before filing the lawsuit.  PILF's analysis of the deceased individuals reveals this breakdown:
  •   23,663 registrants have been dead for five years or more
  •   17,479 registrants have been dead for at least a decade
  •   3,956 registrants have been dead for at least 20 years

Don't Be Fooled: 'Nonpartisan' Get-Out-The-Vote Efforts Always Benefit Democrats.  Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson has said his city will use a private grant to conduct door-to-door canvassing by the city's election officials to urge people to vote.  To many people, it would seem that nothing could be as innocuous as a simple "nonpartisan" get-out-the-vote (GOTV) effort, even if it is financed by private grants to election officials.  It might sound fair enough, if the mayor's election staff takes no partisan position, and advocates for no particular candidates in their efforts, and given that election officials are required by law to operate in a nonpartisan fashion.  But as The Federalist's Mollie Hemingway tweeted at the time, "Zuckerberg-style targeted private financing — and collusion with supposedly non-partisan election administration — of GOTV operations in Democrat regions is a horrific attack on election integrity."

Facebook spied on private messages of Americans who questioned 2020 election.  Facebook has been spying on the private messages and data of American users and reporting them to the FBI if they express anti-government or anti-authority sentiments — or question the 2020 election — according to sources within the Department of Justice.  Under the FBI collaboration operation, somebody at Facebook red-flagged these supposedly subversive private messages over the past 19 months and transmitted them in redacted form to the domestic terrorism operational unit at FBI headquarters in Washington, DC, without a subpoena.  "It was done outside the legal process and without probable cause," alleged one of the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.  "Facebook provides the FBI with private conversations which are protected by the First Amendment without any subpoena."

Audits, Recounts, and the Secret Ballot.  [Scroll down] If audits can't be our solution — and they simply can't — the only remaining option to secure our elections is to do it up front.  We have to take the firm steps of reducing the many opportunities there are to cheat — because once the cheating occurs, it's just too late to correct it.
  •   Ban the six-week election process and month of mail-in voting, and return to a single election day with tightly-controlled absentee ballot options.
  •   Ban onsite and last minute voter registration (except for challenges of voter roll deletions, which must permanently remain segregable even after the count, for security), to ensure enough time to confirm the address before the election.
  •   Mandate that real state-issued identification be checked before a vote is cast.
  •   Put cameras in the polling places, and film everything the poll workers and voters do — everything except the voter's ballot itself.
  •   Make every voter sign a statement (in his own language) acknowledging awareness that voting as a noncitizen, voting under someone else's name, or voting multiple times in the same election, are severe crimes.
  •   Ensure that every vote at least has a printed version for the voter to confirm before it is cast.
There's more, but that's the idea.  To operate a republic, the election process must be so secure that the results can truly be beyond question.  Unfortunately, today, the only question we have is how many races are stolen when the rightful winner's majority is insufficient to overcome the margin of fraud.

The Biden Administration Isn't Interested In Governing But In Criminalizing The Opposition.  Just to be clear: the Jan. 6 committee Democrats are proposing that anyone who thinks there was fraud in the 2020 election, anyone who thinks the election was something less than perfect, is fair game for hauling before the committee, being harassed by the FBI, having his property confiscated, maybe even indicted.  In their world, having the wrong opinion about the election is tantamount to a crime.  You might even get a visit from the FBI — better not delete your emails or destroy your devices.  (That only works if your last name rhymes with Flinton.)  Whatever the committee ends up doing, rest assured it is part of a larger effort to go beyond mere political theater and use the levers of government power to ensure that Trump cannot run again, that his supporters are under investigation, and that anyone who disagrees with the regime about the last election has a target on their back.

Facebook Worked With FBI to Spy on Americans Who Questioned 2020 Election.  According to Department of Justice sources, Facebook has been spying on the private messages and data of Americans who questioned the 2020 election results and reporting them to the FBI.  Since the election, Facebook has worked in conjunction with the FBI to report on "subversive" private messages, sending them to the FBI's domestic terrorism operational unit, supposedly in redacted form, a direct violation of Americans' First and Fourth Amendment rights.  "It was done outside the legal process and without probable cause," one of the sources told the New York Post.  "Facebook provides the FBI with private conversations which are protected by the First Amendment without any subpoena."  According to the Post, "These private messages then have been farmed out as 'leads' to FBI field offices around the country, which subsequently requested subpoenas from the partner US Attorney's Office in their district to officially obtain the private conversations that Facebook already had shown them."

Iran is Hacking Our Systems and Our Elections.  Ransomware, often paid out in cryptocurrency, has become a booming business especially for sanctioned economies like North Korea, Cuba, Russia, Venezuela and Iran.  The lines between state and private hackers is so thin as to often be imaginary.  Iran's hackers went well beyond ransomware to exactly the kind of election interference Dems pretend to care about.  When it isn't being conducted by one of their allied Islamic terror states.

Newly Discovered Police Body Cam Footage Implicates Top Tarrant County Texas Democrat Officials in Ballot Harvesting.  Newly discovered police body cam footage in Forth Worth, TX obtained by The Gateway Pundit shows that the claims made in True the Vote and Dinesh D'Souza's 2000Mules were not exclusive to the "swing states".  Or the 2020 election.  This footage implicates two top Democrat leaders in the county's party:  former Tarrant Co. Democratic Party (TCDP) chairwoman and now candidate for Tarrant Co Judge Deborah Peoples and the director at The Peoples Group, Stuart Clegg.  Clegg was also the executive director for the TCDP and Peoples was a member of the Tarrant County election board and commission responsible for overseeing the integrity of county elections.  You may remember Tarrant County from the 2020 election:  it was a red county for 56 years until the COVID lockdowns and a massive push for the fraud-ridden universal mail-in ballot system.

Maricopa County Under Fire for Appointing More Democrat than Republican Poll Workers.  The Republican National Committee (RNC) is demanding answers from Maricopa County officials after they appointed fewer Republican poll workers than Democrats, despite a legal obligation to have an equal number of poll workers, according to a letter obtained by Breitbart News.  Arizona law requires election officials to hire "an equal number" of Republican and Democrat election inspectors at all voting locations.  However, Maricopa county, which was the focus of several lawsuits and a contested recount stemming from the 2020 presidential election, hired over 100 more Democrat poll workers than Republicans during its August primary elections.

Proposed D.C. Bill Would Automatically Send Mail-In Ballots To Residents That Are Unregistered To Vote.  A newly proposed bill in Washington, D.C. would allow the city to automatically send mail-in ballots to all residents deemed eligible to vote, even if they aren't registered.  According to the digital magazine Bolts, "the city would take information it collects when residents interact with the Department of Motor Vehicles [(DMV)] and other agencies to maintain a constantly-updating list of people who are 'preapproved' to vote," with the only task left to the individuals listed being "to vote come election time."  Under the proposed law, "as long as someone has provided certain documents, the city would verify and record them as eligible: This would pre-qualify them as voters, even when they're not formally on voter rolls," the Bolts report reads.  "D.C. would then send people on this preapproved list a mail-in ballot for every election during the following two years.  They would never need to proactively register ... D.C. would also inform them that they can return a ballot or head to the polls to activate their registration."

DOJ Conceals Records About Biden's Use Of Federal Agencies To Influence Elections.  The Department of Justice (DOJ) is concealing key documents related to President Joe Biden's March 2021 order that directed executive agencies to develop plans for federal interference in state election administration.  On Sept. 8, the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) was scheduled to receive a series of government records from the DOJ that detailed how the agency is complying with Executive Order 14019.  That order mandated all federal departments to "consider ways to expand citizens' opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process."  Among these included the DOJ's 15-page "strategic plan" on how the agency intends to comply with Biden's executive order.  Instead of releasing the documents FGA requested pursuant to federal open records laws, however, the Biden DOJ released only a few records pertaining to the order, most of which were heavily redacted.

Why ballots must remain secret.  The biggest problem with the 2020 election, and it looks like the 2022 election as well, is the loss of the secret ballot by means of mass mail-in voting.  Non-secret ballots have a long history in America, none of it good.  Two major movements to expunge non-secret ballots from America, one in the political arena and the other in the corporate, took place.  The latter, like its main impetus, Wilma Soss, has been too easily forgotten given its crucial importance to the efficiency of the economy.

Everyone Around Biden Is an Election Denier, Including Him.  If you watched Joe Biden's primetime speech on Thursday, you would have seen him insist that anyone who questions the results of an election is a "threat to our democracy."  "Democracy cannot survive when one side believes that there are only two outcomes to an election: either they win or they were cheated," he claimed.  "And that's where MAGA Republicans are today."  Conveniently absent from his speech was the acknowledgment that Democrats have a long history of believing that the only two outcomes of an election are when they win or the election was stolen — including himself.  In 2020, when a supporter of his told him she thought Trump was an illegitimate president, he agreed.  In 2013, he also said he believed that Al Gore won the 2000 presidential election that he actually lost.  Biden's vice president, Kamala Harris, also said that Trump was an illegitimate president.  Biden's press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, also believes the 2016 election was stolen from Hillary.  On top of that his own chief of staff, Ron Klain, still believes that the 2000 election was "stolen" from Al Gore.

Electoral Fraud Goes Mainstream.  If you're one of those crazy "election deniers," you're not alone — the RNC website recently listed over 150 examples of Democrats claiming fraudulent election results, but only in elections they lost.  A YouTube video shows similar whiny complaints from Hilary Clinton, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden, and scores more.  Ask yourself, if there is no election fraud, then everything is fine, but what if it's true that elections can be rigged to favor one side or the other?  What would the consequences be if Americans no longer had the ability to choose their elected officials?  Why wouldn't you support anything that would secure accurate voting results in every local, state, and national election?

Clinton-Appointed Federal Judge Bars Arizona Officials From Enforcing New Law To Remove Dead Voters, Nonresidents, And Non-Citizens From Voter Rolls.  A Clinton-appointed federal Judge blocked a new Arizona election integrity law from being enforced in the upcoming 2022 General Election.  HB2247 is meant to clean the voter rolls and remove registrants who are registered in another state and no longer live in Arizona.  The new law would add a statement on voter registration forms, specifying that if a registrant permanently moves to another state after registering in this state, their registration will be canceled.  It would also direct the county recorder to cancel a voter registration when they confirm that the registered person is dead, that the person is not an Arizona resident or resident of that County, or that they are not a citizen of the United States.

Snap 'Accidentally' Gave Democratic Campaigns Access to Republican Voter Data.  Social media giant Snap reportedly made an "error" that gave leading Democratic campaigns and party committees access to a huge repository of Republican voter data, allowing them to tailor their midterm ads.  Axios reports the social media giant Snap claims to have made a mistake that allowed top Democratic campaigns and party committees to tap into a huge repository of Republican voter data, allowing them to hone and tailor their midterm ads.

RNC, Other Conservative Groups File Lawsuit Against Pennsylvania For Illegally Altering Ballots.  The Republican National Committee (RNC) announced on Friday that it will lead a lawsuit against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania over the issue of illegally "curing" ballots in elections, a process whereby election workers alter incomplete or unreadable ballots rather than treating them as the law requires.  "The RNC is joining with the NRSC, NRCC, Pennsylvania GOP, and concerned Pennsylvania voters to sue the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for unequal treatment of its citizens at the ballot box.  Pennsylvania Democrats, led by Governor Tom Wolf, are unconstitutionally flouting the law by failing to adopt uniform rules for how elections in the Keystone State are run," said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel in a statement. "This lawsuit will ensure that Pennsylvania voters have confidence in their elections and underscores the Republican Party's commitment to making it easier to vote and harder to cheat in Pennsylvania and nationwide."

13 Minutes of Never-Before-Seen Footage of Ballot Trafficking in Detroit, Michigan — Including Postal Workers!.  Election Integrity investigators in Detroit, Michigan captured never-before-seen footage of DOZENS of ballot traffickers dumping HUNDREDS of ballots into ballot drop boxes during the 2020 US presidential election.  The exclusive drop-box footage from the 2020 presidential election was obtained by The Gateway Pundit and Attorney John Burns.  The MC4EI team in Michigan spent hours scouring through the thousands of hours of security camera footage to put together this explosive 13-minute video.

Alaska: Republicans received 60% of vote and lost the race to a Democrat with 40% of vote due to ranked-choice voting.  Democrat Mary Peltola defeated Sarah Palin in the Alaska Special election to replace Rep. Don Young in Congress.  She is the first Democrat to win the House seat in solid red Alaska in 50 Years!  Ranked-choice voting and mail-in ballots were implemented by referendum in 2020. Republicans allowed this to happen.  Now the state is likely lost forever to Democrat cheating and maneuvering.

6 Ways Democrats Are 'Threatening Democracy'.  [#5] Undermining Election Integrity: Biden plans to focus his speech on shaming the conservative movement as one "that does not recognize free and fair elections."  But it's his administration, not the GOP, that is actively engaged in a federal takeover of elections.  Using Executive Order 14019, Biden demanded all federal agencies to create voter registration campaigns, even if that means ignoring state election rules and regulations and partnering with left-wing groups.  That's on top of all of the election shenanigans, rigging, and law-breaking Democrats have routinely used to meddle in U.S. elections.  Whether it's pushing ranked-choice voting to keep their preferred candidates in office, adding practices susceptible to fraud such as widespread mail-in balloting to elections last minute, or gladly accepting the political influence of Big Tech via Zuckbucks, Democrats are guilty of working overtime to make sure it's blue candidates, not red ones, who win at the polls.  At the same time, they conspire to do "whatever it takes" to keep Trump out of office, the sham January 6 Committee, Democrats, their NeverTrump allies, and the corrupt corporate media actively work to dismiss the legitimate election integrity concerns plaguing voters.

Dishonest 'journalism' rules the airwaves.  Turns out, evidence suggests that Mark Zuckerberg facilitated election fraud in Wisconsin, and the story was buried.  Instead, the media and other Democrats claim the election was the "most secure" and anyone who questions it is a threat to democracy, an election denier, and an election liar.  Former Wisconsin Supreme Court justice Mike Gableman alleged an "election bribery scheme" after conducting an investigation into anomalies.

Baked Alaskan: 60% of voters cast ballots for Republicans.  A Democrat won.  What happens when you combine an all-in or "jungle" primary with ranked-choice voting in the general election?  Putting the two modern "innovations" on elections together in Alaska produced this absurd result, in which Republicans lost a House seat despite getting 60% of the vote.  And get ready for it to happen all over again in two months:  [Tweet]

Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro and Lou Dobbs are deposed as part of $1.6 billion Dominion Voting lawsuit.  Fox News hosts Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro and Lou Dobbs have all been deposed over allegations they perpetuated election fraud lies and damaged the reputation of Dominion Voting by hosting friends and advocates of Donald Trump on-air.  Dominion filed a lawsuit against Fox News in March last year, alleging the network deliberately spread a false narrative that its machines and counting systems were rigged in favor of President Joe Biden.  It was a story that every news outlet in the world covered, but Dominion claims that Fox gave a particularly sympathetic ear to Trump's claims.  Carlson and Pirro were deposed last week whereas Dobbs was deposed yesterday.  Hannity is due to be questioned today, and Maria Bartiromo will be questioned next week.

Evidence of Democrats' conspiracy to sway [the] 2020 election [is] getting too big to hide.  [Scroll down] Dozens of former intelligence community leaders — those with the wherewithal and experience to recognize that Hunter Biden's laptop was legitimate — signed on to a letter discrediting the report as Russian disinformation.  They gave Facebook and Twitter the justification they needed to squash the story — even though it was true. [...] Hunter Biden's laptop had the potential to change the outcome of the 2020 election, and everyone knew it.  That's why the FBI allegedly delayed its investigation into Hunter Biden until after the election; why the New York Times and Washington Post confirmed that Hunter Biden's laptop was legitimate only after Biden was in office; and why Big Tech tycoons such as Zuckerberg are only admitting they were wrong to crack down on the story years after the fact.  They were all in on it.  It was a full-court press by our institutions to interfere in the 2020 election.  And thanks to a group of FBI whistleblowers — something we've never had before — it's all starting to come to light.

Arizona Supreme Court Election Integrity Wins over Soros Ballot Measure.  Supporters for election integrity scored a major victory Friday when the Arizona Supreme Court held that Proposition 210 — a ballot initiative to undo Arizona's new election integrity law, financed with George Soros's money — cannot be on the November ballot due to a lack of valid signatures.  Arizona is one of the states that, in the aftermath of the 2020 election, decided that statutory reforms were needed to make it easy to vote, but hard to cheat, to increase public confidence in the election result.

Black Americans File Federal Lawsuit Against NYC for Law Allowing Foreign Nationals to Vote.  A handful of black Americans, residing in New York City, have filed a federal lawsuit against the city's Board of Elections for a local law that would allow nearly a million foreign nationals to vote in citywide elections.  As Breitbart News has chronicled, Democrats on the 51-member New York City Council approved a plan last month that allows more than 800,000 foreign nationals with green cards, visas, and work permits the opportunity to vote in citywide elections so long as they have resided in the city for at least 30 consecutive days.

Black voters say NYC's immigrant voting plan is racially motivated attempt to shift power.  Black residents in New York filed a lawsuit Monday [8/29/2022] arguing that the city's attempt to allow noncitizens to vote in municipal elections is unconstitutional because it was a "racially motivated" move to siphon political power from Black residents to other racial or ethnic minorities.  The lawsuit, filed by the Public Interest Legal Foundation on behalf of four residents, said city council members who wrote the law last year made explicit racial appeals, saying they wanted to change "the color of the skin" of people who were voting in elections.  And that hurts Black voters in particular, because the new noncitizen voters will be heavily Hispanic and Asian, and are expected to dilute the strength of Blacks in a city where voting breaks down along racial lines, the plaintiffs said.

Donald Trump: Declare Me Rightful Winner or Redo 'Fraud' 2020 Election.  President Donald Trump argued Monday that he should be declared the winner of the 2020 election, citing fraud and election interference by the FBI.  The former president pointed to reports that the FBI worked to bury the story about Hunter Biden's laptop on social media right before the 2020 election.  "This is massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before in our Country," Trump wrote on social media.  Trump said the FBI purposefully tried to stop him from winning the 2020 election.

Montana election integrity organization found more than 120,000 invalid votes cast during 2020 election.  More evidence has emerged detailing how massive the Democrat-led fraud was during the 2020 election that was stolen from President Donald Trump and Republicans.  While much of the attention post-2020 has focused on battleground states like Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Georgia, other states appear to have suffered major fraud as well, including Montana, a new report notes.  The Montana Election Integrity Project said that its investigators found more than 120,000 invalid votes out of a sample of just over 612,000 cast.  The organization "canvassed six Montana counties to ask questions about the Montana 2020 General Election in which 612,075 votes were cast.  The counties canvassed were Carbon, Flathead, Lewis & Clark, Missoula, Ravalli, and Yellowstone," the report says, according to the group's website.  "Of the 4,347 voters for whom the canvassers obtained information, we found 1,138 voters who cast votes which are considered to be invalid.  This is 26.2% of the voters canvassed.  Extrapolated across the whole state of Montana this represents 120,261 invalid votes!" the site continued.

Judge Denies Michigan Secretary of State's Motion To Dismiss Lawsuit Removing 26,000 Dead Registrants From Voter Rolls.  In a win for election integrity advocates, the United States Western District Court of Michigan denied Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson's attempt at dismissing Public Interest Legal Foundation's (PILF) lawsuit pertaining to the failure to remove dead registrants from the state's voter rolls.  The court also dismissed motions to intervene from leftist groups, such as the A. Philip Randolph Institute, the Michigan Alliance for Retired Americans, and Rise, Inc.  In 2020, PILF had notified the Secretary of State's office about dead registrants remaining on Michigan's voter rolls, but Benson did nothing about it.  In November 2021, the nonprofit filed a lawsuit against Benson for her failure to remove 25,975 deceased registrants from voter lists.  According to PILF's own analysis of the 25,975 deceased registrants:
  •   23,663 registrants have been dead for five years or more
  •   17,479 registrants have been dead for at least a decade
  •   3,956 registrants have been dead for at least 20 years

The Debate Continues as Dominion Deposes Hannity, Carlson, Others Over Trump's 2020 Election 'Narrative'.  Month after month, news cycle after news cycle, some things never change, including the never-ending debate about the 2020 presidential election, with allegations that the election was "rigged" and "stolen," Donald Trump's role in the aftermath, and, on a journalistic sidetrack, the $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems against Fox News for claiming Dominion was complicit in voter fraud.  So, here's the question, in this case: Was Dominion a villain or victim?  The answer depends on which side one is predisposed to believe.  For those in the middle, questions remain for both sides.

Lake v Hobbs Case in Arizona Dismissed.  We're Sure You Can Guess Why.  In one of the plaintiff's allegations, they claimed that the election equipment must undergo "thorough testing by independent, neutral experts" according to ARS 16-442(A)(B).  While Lake v Hobbs does not deal with the 2020 election, it is worth noting that Arizona machines in 2020 were not certified by an accredited testing lab.  Furthermore, it must also be noted that these testing laboratories have a glaring conflict of interest in certifying these machines.  They are paid to do this work by the manufacturer of the machines they're certifying.

Democrat-Linked Group Claims 96,000 Extra Immigrant Voters in Georgia.  A Democrat-backed group claims to have naturalized almost 100,000 legal immigrants in Georgia before the November elections.  "Over 96,000 newly naturalized Americans in the state, who naturalized between 2016 and 2020, could significantly influence the outcome of the 2022 midterm elections,' said the press statement by National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA), the SEIU union, and various Georgia-based, pro-migration groups. [...] The naturalization includes many Indians, who are one of the most pro-diversity, pro-Democratic immigrant blocs.  "The number of newly naturalized citizens originally from India, 11,188, is nearly equal to the margin of victory during the November 2020 presidential election," the statement said.  Georgia used to be a solidly red state.  However, the growing number of legal and illegal migrants recruited by businesses has allowed the Democrats to gain state seats and to win a national Senate majority in 2021 when Georgians elected two Democrat Senators.

Former WI Justice Michael Gableman Calls Out ERIC System and WI Election Fraud at Moment of Truth Summit.  Former WI Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman was contracted by RINO Robin Vos to conduct an in-depth investigation into the 2020 election.  In this investigation, he found massive discrepancies in the way the WEC conducted the 2020 election.  Justice Gableman called for the legislature in Wisconsin to "take a very hard look at decertification". [...] He also said "ERIC's stated purpose is to keep our election rolls accurate.  That is a lie.  Lets just say that... that is a lie.  What is my evidence?  The evidence is in WI we have approximately 5.5M citizens.  Of whom, approximately 4M are eligible to vote.  So if I ask you 'how many people, at most, should WI have on its voter rolls?'  If you're tracking, you'll say no more than 4M.  That's the number of eligible voters.  We have over 7m names on those voter rolls... The excess of which is all available to the George Soros funded ERIC.  And they can do whatever they want with those names and we're not allowed to know.  Neither we nor any other state is allowed to know."

Court Rejects Democrat Official's Attempt to Keep 26K Dead People on Michigan Voter Rolls.  The U.S. Western District Court of Michigan denied a plea by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (D) that sought to halt a lawsuit alleging she kept nearly 26,000 dead registrants on the state's voter rolls.  In November 2021, as Breitbart News reported, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) filed suit against Benson accusing her of keeping nearly 26,000 dead registrants on Michigan voter rolls and thus violating the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA).  Benson, in response, sought to have the lawsuit thrown out.  On Thursday, the district court denied Benson's effort to dismiss the case.  "It is astonishing that Secretary Benson is so vigorously opposing effective list maintenance," PILF President J. Christian Adams said in a statement.

Out of Outrage.  [Scroll down] It was before the stolen election, when all of the gears were lining up and no one put a stop to it.  It was when witness after witness, whistleblower after whistleblower came forward to attest to the steal and the more than 50% of the people who thought there were significant errors in the election, but no one seemed interested in investigating the most important threat to the republic as has ever taken place in the open broadness of daylight.  Silence.  It was in the recognition that something like that could take place and be swept under the rug, that literally NO ONE on the left felt the slightest loyalty to the union to demand that an accounting take place and to allow for the chips to fall where they may.  Civil war occurs when a significant percentage of the political class and those close to the sources of power no longer have any loyalty to the existing political structure or the abuses that structure prevents.

26 Baltimore Residents Received Their 2020 Ballots in the Mail Three Weeks Ago.  According to Just The News, some voters in Baltimore received their mail-in ballots earlier this month.  The bad news is that those ballots were for the 2020 election.  On Aug. 5, 2022, a tray of undelivered ballots was discovered.  To the post office's credit, they were delivered to the homes in Southeast Baltimore on Aug. 6.  Better late than... never?  It's easy to write this one off.  After all, we're only talking about 26 votes in a traditionally blue state that Biden won with 1,985,023 votes to Trump's 976,414.  The results were probably a foregone conclusion.  But during my years as a reporter, I covered a city council election in which the incumbent won by a single vote.  And while 26 ballots were not enough to swing things one way or the other for the Oval Office, it would be interesting to see if they would have affected any down-ballot candidate races or propositions.

Two Years after election, Post Office just now finds 2020 ballots.  While President Donald Trump, and many others, have been expressing concern over anomalies that became evident during the 2020 presidential election, Democrats and many establishment figures in the Washington, D.C., bureaucracy have expressed that it was flawless, nearly perfect, without so much as a hint of a failure.  Now a Post Office in Baltimore apparently has turned up evidence of that perfection.  WMAR-TV, the city's ABC affiliate, said the USPS facility found a tray of undelivered mail, and it included 26 blank ballots from 2020.  The letters were just delivered.  And now, the Baltimore Board of Elections is trying "to understand" how this happened.  It's long been known that mail-in ballots are more susceptible fraud than in-person voting, but there's no information about whether that was the intent with this situation.

Florida Gov Ron DeSantis announces 20 people across the state have been charged with voter fraud for casting ballots after they were convicted of murder or sexual assault.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday that 20 people across his state have been charged with voter fraud.  The governor did not say in what election they had voted but said they had come from Broward, Palm Beach and Miami Dade counties and had been arrested for voting 'because they were convicted of murder or sexual assault.'  Floridians passed a constitutional amendment restoring felons' voting rights after they've after they've served their sentences and paid all fines, fees and restitution, but those convicted of a sex offense or murder are banned from voting forever unless they are granted a pardon to do so.

Florida in Process of Arresting 20 Individuals for Voter Fraud.  Florida is in the process of arresting 20 individuals who have been charged for voter fraud, Sunshine State officials announced Thursday [8/18/2022].  Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) signed landmark election integrity legislation in April, creating an Office of Election Crimes and Security under Florida's State Department, which reviews and investigates allegations of voter fraud.

Most Americans Support Election Audits Immediately After Polling Day.  A majority of American voters support states requiring audits "immediately after elections" to protect election integrity, according to a new poll by Rasmussen Reports sponsored by The National Pulse.  Asked, "Should every state require that ballots be available immediately after elections for bipartisan voter reviews to enhance election confidence and transparency?"  56 percent of likely voters supported the idea while just 23 percent of likely voters opposed it.  The Rasmussen data showed that 68 percent of Republicans — considerably more than just 45 percent of their Democrat-voting counterparts — supported the push for election integrity.  57 percent of Independents were also in support.

104% of Voting Aged Population In MI Is Registered To Vote!  For months, grassroots groups have sounded the alarm about ERIC (Electronic Registration Information Center), a system used in 31 states that was originally funded by the Soros Open Society, and how it is bloating the voter rolls.  Now, evidence indicates ERIC is politically compromised.  Meanwhile, the clock ticks down to the 2022 election, even as the number of Michigan's registered voters climbs dangerously — and impossibly — to 104% of its Voting Aged Population (VAP).

Census Bureau Admits Overcounting 7 Blue States, Just 1 Red State.  In a shocking report, the U.S. Census Bureau recently admitted that it overcounted the populations of eight states and undercounted the populations of six states in the 2020 census.  All but one of the states overcounted is a blue state, and all but one of the undercounted states is red.  Those costly errors will distort congressional representation and the Electoral College.  It means that when the Census Bureau reapportioned the House of Representatives, Florida was cheated out of two additional seats it should have gotten; Texas missed out on another seat; Minnesota and Rhode Island each kept a representative they shouldn't have; and Colorado was awarded a new member of the House it didn't deserve.  These harmful errors also mean billions in federal funds will be misallocated. Funding for many federal programs is distributed to the states based on population.  Overcounted states will now receive a larger share of federal funds than they are entitled to, at the expense of the undercounted states.

U.S. Postal Service Just Institutionalized Election Interference With New Mail-In-Ballot Division.  Starbucks recently asked the National Labor Relations Board to suspend all pending and ongoing votes to unionize at its U.S. stores due to concerns stemming from mail-in ballots.  The franchise's objections once again raise questions about the credibility of election systems that rely on mail-in ballots.  As with coffee companies, how much more with the American electoral process?  With hundreds of millions of dollars of campaign material and increasing numbers of ballots in the mail, postal efficiency and honesty are becoming increasingly vital to free and fair elections.  Ostensibly to address some of these concerns, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) announced on July 28 that it was creating the Election and Government Mail Services division.

NBA Will Not Schedule Games on Election Day.  The NBA will not be scheduling any games on the midterm election day, but all 30 teams will play the night before on November 7, the Associated Press stated.  The league looks to use this as an opportunity to encourage its fans to get out and vote to "amplify the need for civic engagement."

It doesn't take all day to vote.  The polls are open for twelve hours on Election Day.  Anybody who really wants to vote can do so.

Judge Blocks Texas Restrictions on Using P.O. Boxes For Voter Registration.  Some 5,000 Texans who used a P.O. box as a voter registration address will likely be able to cast a ballot in the state's midterm elections after a federal judge blocked a 2021 state election law.  Senate Bill 1111 attempted to tighten residency guidelines for Texas voters, but was struck down this month by U.S. District Court Judge Lee Yeakel, an appointee under former president George W. Bush.  Yeakel, who presides over the Austin Division for the Western District of Texas, found in a summary judgement that the state used vague language in the election law and parts of it failed constitutional scrutiny.  Texas' Attorney General Ken Paxton appealed the decision last week to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, according to State Sen. Paul Bettencourt (R-Houston), who authored the election bill.

L.A. Claims 27% Error Rate in Recall Signatures; < 1% Error Rate in Mail-in Ballots in 2020.  Los Angeles County reported Monday that over 27% of the signatures submitted on petitions to recall District Attorney George Gascón were invalid — after reporting that less than 1% of mail-in ballots were invalid in the 2020 election.  The county reported that it rejected 195,783 of the 715,833 signatures submitted, roughly 27.3%.  The reasons given included that some voters were found to be unregistered; incorrect addresses were given; or signatures did not match those on file.

Gascón Recall Campaign Will Review Rejected Signatures; Possible Legal Action.  The campaign to recall Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón will review the signatures that were rejected by county officials, a spokesperson told Breitbart News, one day after enough signatures were rejected to defeat the recall effort.  Gascón, who took office in December 2020 after being elected with the help of millions of dollars in spending by left-wing billionaire George Soros, has pursued radical "reform" policies that many voters blame for a surge of violent crime in L.A.  He is one of 75 "progressive" prosecutors Soros has installed across the country.  In July, the recall campaign handed in 26% more than the required target of 566,857 signatures.  But on Monday, county officials claimed that 27% of the signatures had been invalid for a variety of reasons, causing the recall effort to fail.

Suddenly, mail-in voting can't be trusted!
Starbucks calls for halt of mail-in voting for union elections.  Seattle-based Starbucks has requested that the National Labor Relations Board temporarily suspend mail-in-voting in union elections over allegations that labor board personnel coordinated with union representatives to improperly influence voting.  In a Monday letter to the chairman and general counsel of the NLRB, Starbucks alleges "highly improper, systemic misconduct" and that board agents secretly coordinated with union agents in a concerted effort to "tip the scales" in favor of the union in an election at an Overland, Kansas location.

Democratic Operatives Control Voter Rolls In 31 States, Report Shows.  A prominent voter-roll management system used by 31 states and the District of Columbia has politically compromised ties, according to a new report by independent research group Verity Vote.  The Electronic Registration Information Center, or ERIC, was sold to states as a quick and easy way to update their voter rolls.  Started in 2012 by far-left activist David Becker and the left-leaning Pew Charitable Trusts, the program is ostensibly run by the member states themselves.  But as public records show, Democratic operatives are working overtime under the cover of ERIC to accomplish their partisan goals and drive Democratic voter turnout.

Census errors will distort elections, funding for next decade.  In a shocking report, the U.S. Census Bureau recently admitted that it overcounted the populations of eight states and undercounted the populations of six states in the 2020 census.  All but one of the states overcounted is a blue state, and all but one of the undercounted states is red.  Those costly errors will distort congressional representation and the Electoral College.  It means that when the Census Bureau reapportioned the House of Representatives, Florida was cheated out of two additional seats it should have gotten; Texas missed out on another seat; Minnesota and Rhode Island each kept a representative they shouldn't have, and Colorado was awarded a new member of the House it didn't deserve.

Isn't it remarkable that the "errors" all go in the same direction?

Vote-by-mail is the worst way to run an election.  2020 was the first time an election was conducted by mass vote-by-mail.  It was a train wreck.  According to federal data, election officials do not know what happened to nearly 15 million mail ballots in 2020.  Some of these ballots were blowing in the winds on Nevada roads, and some were in stacks on apartment lobby floors.  Some ended up in landfills.  No surprise considering that the United States Post Office aspired to a 95% success rate in getting election mail delivered on time.  Put another way, the post office was content with a 5% failure rate.

President Trump is Our 'Canary in the Coal Mine'.  There have been a host of election process investigations since November, 2020, when Donald Trump, who won 74 million popular votes, was declared to have lost to Joe Biden's alleged 81 million, in a total purported voting population of 158 million.  This would be an increase of 22 million over the turnout in 2016, in a country in which the only significant population demographic that's increasing is that of non-citizens.  It is statistically dubious, leading to the logical conclusion that a lot of those votes, certainly millions if not tens of millions, were fabricated.  What have almost all the investigations found?  Even the most cursory review of their findings shows numerous opportunities for fraud — the lack of ID checks, the opportunity for round-tabling, the lack of any chain of custody in most non-election day voting... dozens of methods putting tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands, of votes per state in question.  Nonetheless, these reports always conclude that they cannot "prove" that fraud occurred.

Kansas Recounting Abortion Vote Amid Fear of Irregularities in Voting Data.  After the defeat of a proposed constitutional amendment in Kansas that would have affirmed that there is no "constitutional right to abortion," conservatives have launched the first recount of a state ballot measure in 30 years.  The Associated Press reported that the amendment failed by 18 percentage points, or approximately 165,000 votes.  The organizer of the recount, Melissa Leavitt, has reportedly put up the $220,000 bond required by Kansas law to cover the costs of the hand recount, citing data irregularities she says she saw in the days following the election.

The 2024 Election Is Being Rigged Right Now In Plain Sight.  [Scroll down]  The system, called the Electronic Registration Information Center, or ERIC, is supposedly a convenient tool that simply allows states to update their voter rolls.  But its real purpose, according to a recent report by independent research group Verity Vote, is to boost Democrat voter turnout by forwarding state voter roll data, including records from unregistered voters, to CEIR.  As Marshall reports, "CEIR then develops targeted mailing lists and sends them back to the states to use for voter registration outreach.  As part of their agreement with ERIC, states are not allowed to disclose any data they send to nor receive from ERIC, however, ERIC is not under the same constraints and is able to work with CEIR."  In addition, it seems ERIC doesn't exist to purge or update voter rolls so much as to inflate them, identifying 17 million new voters in 2020 compared to purging just 3 million from state voter rolls.  Despite its failure to clean voter rolls, a majority of states are still using the system, which is run by a left-wing activist named David Becker.

Robin Vos fires Michael Gableman, leaving GOP election review in limbo.  After 14 months, hundreds of headlines, more than $1 million in taxpayer dollars and a bitter, public feud, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos on Friday fired Michael Gableman, the former Wisconsin Supreme Court justice he hired last summer to review Wisconsin's 2020 presidential election.  The speaker's decision came just days after Gableman — and former President Donald Trump — endorsed Vos' primary opponent, Adam Steen, whom the speaker narrowly defeated Tuesday.  Speaking to reporters after unofficial results came in on election night, Vos called Gableman "an embarrassment to the state" and said he would speak with members of his caucus about the former justice's future.  In a statement on Friday [8/12/2022], Vos said, after hearing from members of his caucus since Tuesday, "it is beyond clear to me that we only have one choice in this matter, and that's to close the Office of Special Counsel."

Elections Belong to the States.  For all state elections, it's very clear that the state legislature has the authority to write laws about how they are conducted.  For example, the legislature in Florida could declare that elections for state officeholders would only be on February 29, on Pi Day (March 14, 3.14 in European notation), or some other silly rule.  But as long as that rule was applied evenly and did not prevent any particular group of otherwise eligible Florida voters from voting, it would be legal.  The same rule applies to voter registration.  The 26th Amendment does require states to allow 18-year-olds to vote but otherwise creates no other specific rules.  States are fully free to restrict non-citizens from voting because the 26th Amendment only guarantees the franchise to citizens.  We could go on with a long list of other possible rules, but note that I have said absolutely nothing yet about federal elections.

It Happened Again:  Cherokee County, Kansas Election Results Reversed After "Vote Flip" Discovered.  Nothing to see here, folks.  Just a human error, technical glitch, or "we caught it in time". Those are the excuses we hear every single time.  Every time.  Antrim County, Dekalb County, Williamson County, Windham, NH. The list goes on and on and on of jurisdictions that have some "human error" or "technical glitch" that causes votes to flip, change or swap.  Enter our latest example:  Cherokee County, Kansas.  Not to be confused with Cherokee County, GA that recently went against the will of their constituents by refusing to conduct a hand recount and sided with highly questionable legal guidance from a conflicted attorney who used to work for the Secretary of States Office that is being called into question.

Fraud and Future Elections.  Michigan Republican and former state senator Patrick Colbeck is facing potential legal action over his allegations of widespread fraud in the 2020 U.S. presidential election. [...] Curiously, there does not seem to be any defamation action against The New York Times, which in June 2020 quoted bipartisan election-security experts and a federal judge who called Georgia's recently purchased $100 million Dominion system "insecure."  The same article pointed out that the company's products failed certification in Texas the previous year.  Nor has the Associated Press run askance of Dominion lawyers, despite its 2018 report citing experts who accused Dominion and its major competitors of having "long skimped on security in favor of convenience, making it more difficult to detect intrusions."  The article mentioned "chronic problems" and "multiple critical vulnerabilities" dating back eight years.  CNN seems immune to defamation charges as well.

Welcome To The Banana Republic of Biden!  [Scroll down]  The primary election results in Arizona only accelerated the process.  Trump-endorsed candidates ran the table against the GOP establishment.  There was an attempted steal in Maricopa County against Kari Lake that was partially thwarted, I am told, because she won every other county in Arizona and the number of manufactured votes needed would indicate a 125% voter participation rate in Maricopa County.  The disgraced Mike Pence and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey both endorsed Kari Lake's primary opponent Karrin Taylor Robson — and it didn't matter.  Pinal County "ran out of ballots" on Election Day and mailed 63,000 mail-in ballots to the wrong voters — and it didn't matter.  Maricopa County erected a covered fence around their counting center to prepare for the steal — and it didn't matter.  The 2020 election playbook was just too obvious this time.  Too many people noticed.  Too many angry voters showed up in front of Maricopa County's election offices to protest.  There was no way to explain why Maricopa needed two more days than every other county in Arizona to count its primary votes.  The old playbook didn't work.

Joe Biden Likely to Extend National COVID Emergency Declaration — To Facilitate Mail-in Ballots and Harvesting?  Politico is reporting on the likelihood that Joe Biden is preparing to extend the national COVID-19 state of emergency through the 2022 midterm elections.  The debate, as outlined in just about every media narrative surrounding renewals of a national COVID emergency, is obtusely presented as if the primary political concern is public health.  Again, everyone must pretend not to know the true motive of the "emergency" is extending unilateral executive power and all of the control mechanisms therein.  One mechanism would include the use of 'Mail-in election ballots', which has absolutely nothing to do with public health.  The article appears to be somewhat testing the proverbial public winds.

Arizona Enters Day Three Still Counting Ballots.  According to election officials in Maricopa County, Arizona, they will provide further updates on their ballot counting efforts on Thursday after 7pm.  The election was Tuesday.  Apparently, in Arizona it takes several days to count election ballots or something, and we are not supposed to think this is odd. [...] According to Maricopa County election officials they have counted 715,941 ballots[.]  According to the Arizona Secretary of State office, they are reporting 698,981 votes for governor were cast in Maricopa County [402,023(R), 296,958(D)]  There are 16,968 more ballots reported from Maricopa County than votes cast for governor as reported by the Secretary of State.  Did 16,968 voters in Maricopa County cast ballots without voting for governor?

Georgia Secretary of State's Office Admits To 2020 Election Recount "Errors".  The attorney for Georgia's Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has been forced to admit in writing that Fulton County did not conduct a proper and legal recount of their 2020 election results.  In an email dated July 29th, 2022, the attorney for Georgia's Secretary of State (named C. Ryan Germany) admits to a number of bad practices among the public officials that handle elections in Georgia to concerned citizen Joe Rossi.  The most important point is that the Georgia Secretary of State's Office cannot support the results of Fulton County's hand recount of their 2020 election results:  "As part of the allegations that you made, our investigators looked at the alleged violations and found that Fulton did make mistakes in their audit counting/reporting.  Those are what have been referred to the AG's office."  The second point is that the Georgia Secretary of State did not check or supervise or verify the results of hand recounts from Georgia counties.  In other words, the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is not doing his job.

Colorado Sec State Candidate Tina Peters Sues Every Clerk in Colorado over Recount Procedures.  The El Paso County, Co. hand recount is now done.  At least for now.  Lawsuits filed are challenging the legality of the recount.  Earlier this week, The Gateway Pundit reported that the team of local candidates in El Paso County, CO filed a lawsuit against the Secretary of State and the El Paso Co Clerk.  The lawsuit would compel the CO Secretary of State to conduct the recount while assigning the Clerk and Recorder as an official observer to the recount.  It is alleged in the lawsuit that the current method of testing and conducting the recount is inconsistent with Colorado Revised Statutes.

What We Must Do to Restore Confidence in Our Elections.  According to Patrick Basham, there are such things as "non-polling metrics" — things like comparative party registrations, turnouts in the primary elections, social media followings, attendance at campaign rallies and other measures that had, prior to the 2020 presidential election, predicted the outcome of presidential elections with 100% accuracy.  In 2020, all these measures pointed to a Trump victory.  In attendance at campaign rallies, for example, Trump's average attendance exceeded Biden's by a average ratio of 343 to 1.  And yet Biden won. [...] And there were hundreds of affidavits charging malfeasance, and there were whistleblowers in Pennsylvania and Georgia.  There were audits in Arizona and Montana showing potential fraud.  And, most recently, there was True the Vote/Dinesh D'Souza's documentary 2000 Mules, which, through cell-phone geo-tracking and surveillance videotapes, showed persons, often in the dead of night, apparently stuffing ballot drop boxes.  None of these, at least so far, have been sufficient evidence for bring a charge of vote fraud against specific individuals.  But, the assurances of Democrats, major media and others notwithstanding, they certainly cast legitimate doubt on the integrity of the 2020 election.

Kari Lake Wins Nail-Biter in Arizona Despite Apparent Mail-In Ballot Fraud.  Despite a double-digit polling lead a day before the election, Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake was nearly stunned by Karrin Taylor Robson in the Arizona primary.  Lake spent the entire night clawing back from being way behind.  The reason:  Early voting and mail-in ballots were the first counted and Robson outperformed anyone's wildest dreams in those arenas.  In the end, in-person voting won out, delivering the victory for Lake.

The Big Lies We Cannot Question.  The biggest lie allegedly spread by Republicans, now called "The Big Lie," is to claim the 2020 election was illegitimate.  But even if the 2020 election was not compromised due to a relentlessly hostile and partisan media, endless political persecution designed to damage Donald Trump's reelection campaign, voting rules that were violated and manipulated in swing states, Zuckerbucks, and possibly much more, this assertion still isn't a Republican "lie." For better or for worse, there are diverse opinions within the ranks of Republicans.  Some think it was a stolen election; others don't.  But no such dissent exists among Democrats over some of the biggest lies ever told.

A New Bill Takes On 'Zuckerbucks' and 'Bidenbucks'.  There were many things wrong with the 2020 election, but one of the biggest was the massive amounts of 'Zuckerbucks' used to influence the structure of elections at the local level.  Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan injected $350 million into over 2,500 election departments through the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative along with another $69.5 million to secretaries of state, disproportionately benefiting Democrat electorates.  As David Horowitz and John Perazzo wrote in their expose of the ugly influence operation, the grant money had to be used to "suspend existing election laws in order to promote universal mail-in voting", "eliminate or weaken signature-matching requirements and ballot-receipt deadlines for mail-in votes", "enable the proliferation of unmonitored ballot drop boxes" and "create unprecedented opportunities for illegal ballot harvesting" among other measures.

A Declaration Of Dissolution:  Wisconsin Supreme Court Fires The Starting Gun.  A court of law has finally confirmed it:  The 2020 election was "illegitimate."  And all the demands for sufficient evidence of voter fraud to reverse the outcome were a red herring.  The truly dispositive factor, as stated by a Republican Wisconsin state legislator in a March hearing and affirmed in the opinion:  "If a vote is cast in an illegal process, it's an illegal vote!"  The reasons for legislatively enacted absentee ballot protections are clear.  Justice Bradley quotes the Wisconsin Legislature's rationale:  "(P)revent the potential for fraud or abuse ... overzealous solicitation of absent electors who may prefer not to participate in an election ... undue influence on an absent elector ... or other similar abuses."

Wisconsin clerks refer 10 new voter fraud cases from 2020 election.  Ten criminal voter fraud referrals related to the 2020 election have been made over the past year by local clerks, according to a Wisconsin Elections Commission report.  This brings the total number of voter fraud referrals for the 2020 election up to 22.  In the most recent report, however, several referrals were for "multiple elections," meaning that the total number may be higher.  Some cases referred to district attorneys involved a person voting in person and absentee by mail in the 2020 election.  Others involved voting in two different states or voter impersonation.  Voting twice is against Wisconsin law, regardless of intent, the Epoch Times reported.

Out-Of-State Democrats Pay Millions To Influence Kansas Election Because Abortion Is On The Ballot.  Kansans head to the polls Tuesday [8/2/2022] to vote on the proposed "Value Them Both" constitutional amendment that seeks to overturn the Kansas Supreme Court's decision in Hodes & Nauser v. Schmidt that declared that the state constitution guarantees a "fundamental right to abortion."  Many Kansans may not realize, however, that the votes they cast on Tuesday may have been heavily influenced by out-of-state abortion apologists who contributed a whopping 71 percent of the $6.54 million spent by the lead group campaigning against the amendment.

Bombshell Presentation Reveals Identities Of Maricopa County Elections Employees Who Deleted Files From Election Server Before Maricopa County Audit.  We The People AZ Alliance hosted an election security forum in Maricopa County on Saturday [7/30/2022], featuring testimony from expert witnesses and state legislators. [...] Election investigator Matt Vanbiber also shared his discoveries from the Maricopa County Elections Department's public footage.  He finally revealed the identities of individuals who illegally deleted elections files from the Elections Management Server in April 2021.  This data was deleted before the voting machines were delivered to Senate auditors in compliance with a subpoena.  Federal law requires these files to be kept for 22 months.  Maricopa County officials previously admitted that these files were "deleted" in a Congressional hearing but later walked it back and said that the files were "archived."  This was one of the many law violations discovered by the Arizona audit and other Maricopa County's 2020 Election investigations.

Racine, Wisconsin Rolls Out Its Mobile Home Voting Station on Wheels — Paid for Exclusively with Zuckerbucks.  The courts recently banned ballot drop boxes in the state but apparently, mobile home traveling voting machines are just fine. [...] It's the first of its kind in Wisconsin.  Soon Democrats will steal and manufacture all of their ghost votes by mobile precincts.  You don't have to be a genius to see that happening.  City volunteers and staff work in the buses.  But no GOP observers.

U.S. Postal Service Opens Permanent Political Division, Dedicated to the Delivery and Return of Mail-in Election Ballots.  With mail-in ballots becoming a feature of all future elections, the United States government, specifically the United States Postal Service (USPS) is now creating a permanent division inside USPS to control the delivery and return of the election ballots.  Do you know the political affiliation of your mail courier?  As often said, it's not the vote that matters, it's the counting.  [O]r in this instance, the collection of the votes that really matters.  Democrat lawyer Mark Elias, in charge of protecting all fraudulent voting initiatives on behalf of the Democrat National Committee, is happy with the news.  Keep in mind the union representing 300,000 U.S. postal workers previously endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for president.  The National Association of Letter Carriers, is a fully compromised left-wing division of the USPS.  The USPS has just created a division of NALC employees exclusively to handle mail-in voting, just in time for the mid-term election.

Judge issues an election integrity win in New Mexico.  A federal judge has allowed an election transparency initiative to publish voter registration records publicly online to move forward despite objections from New Mexico election regulators.  Granting the preliminary injunction Friday, District Judge James O. Browning blocked defendants New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas and New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver from prosecuting the plaintiff, Voter Reference Foundation (VRF), for publishing information it has already obtained as the case moves forward.

Los Angeles bans observers from watching George Gascon recall count.  Monitors will not be allowed to view the vote-counting process to recall District Attorney George Gascon because the county of Los Angeles does not view the event as an election, county officials say.  However, opponents insist that the law clearly states that the recall is an election and the process should be public.  Support from Gov. Gavin Newsom and Democratic politicians helped usher far-left Gascon into office two years ago, and the recall campaign wants to make sure the voter petitions are accurately counted to place the measure on a ballot.  "We are concerned about it, and we have attorneys looking at it," retired LAPD Sgt. Dennis Zine, one of the campaign organizers, said of the petition counting.

Maricopa County Official Is Panicked Voters May Bring Their Own Pen to Polls.  Let me preface this article by telling all of my readers:  You can use any blue or black ballpoint pen you bring to the voting booth or poll.  Do not let anyone there force you or pressure you into using their pen against your wishes.  On Tuesday, The Gateway Pundit reported that SharpieGate 2.0 was perhaps in the making when Maricopa Co Recorder Stephen Richer about faced on his July 7th tweet saying "use any black or blue pen".  He tweeted on July 26th that "we will give ALL voters a special pen at voting locations.  PLEASE PLEASE use this pen."  He then states that other pens don't dry quick enough and can "gunk" the tabulators, requiring cleaning.

High-Ranking Member Of Wisconsin Assembly Calls For Decertification Of 2020 Election Results.  There has been an internal civil war brewing in Wisconsin's Republican Party between Republicans who believe that we should move past the 2020 election without passing election integrity measures or seeing if the results were valid.  Wisconsin's Assembly Speaker, Robin Vos, has turned on President Trump and came out last week saying that he turned his back on President Trump when he asked him to look in to the results of the 2020 election.  One of Wisconsin's most influential State Representatives joined the growing chorus of people who want to decertify the 2020 election results this week.  Wisconsin state Rep. Janel Brandtjen, R-Menomonee Falls, announced Friday that she would support a decertification of the 2020 presidential election.

The Demise of American Citizenship.  After the blatant and unconstitutional voting law changes that allowed the Democrat party and the ruling elites to fraudulently win the 2020 presidential election, one of the basic birthrights of American citizenship, voting in fair and free elections, has been permanently imperiled.  Millions of mail-in ballots with no security controls were indiscriminately distributed and unaccounted for throughout the length and breadth of the country, at least 4-8 million ballots were illegally "harvested" by paid campaign workers, and per the documentary film "2000 Mules" hundreds of thousands of ballots were feloniously "stuffed" into innumerable drop-off boxes.  The denials of election fraud and subsequent cover-ups by the media and the ruling class ring hollow and insincere as they, in essence, have told the American citizens that they have little or no say in who is chosen to run or how their leaders are elected.

Local News Channel Posts The Results Of The Primary Election Who Should Be Held Next Week.  The primary elections in Michigan are set to occur next week.  But the local News Channel 3 apparently just released the results last night.  RINO Tudor Dixon Trump hater Peter Meijer won according to the leaked results!  In any event, this is a major story and it shows just how corrupt our system has become.

Brandon Admin Seeking To Give ID Cards, Government Benefits To Illegal Immigrants.  The Biden administration intends to provide illegal immigrants in the United States a temporary identification card so they can access government benefits while they wait for final decisions on their cases.  The program, titled the "ICE Secure Docket Card program," would be funded with $10 million from the Biden administration's fiscal year 2023 appropriations bill, which states, "$10,000,000 for the ICE Secure Docket Card program to allow noncitizens access to immigration files and documents."  "The ICE Secure Docket Card program is part of a pilot program to modernize various forms of documentation provided to provisionally released noncitizens through a consistent, verifiable, secure card," an ICE spokesperson told Axios.  "The cards would feature a photo and biographic identifiers.  It would also include 'cutting-edge security features."

Biden Considers Giving ID Cards to Illegal Aliens Released into U.S.  President Joe Biden is considering issuing government identification (ID) cards to border crossers and illegal aliens who are set for release into American communities as part of the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) expansive "catch and release" operation.  Late last week, Axios reported that Biden is considering issuing the IDs to illegal aliens once they arrived at the United States-Mexico border.  The goal is to make securing public benefits easier once they are released into the U.S. interior.

Willing Accomplices in The Greatest Crime of Our Lifetimes.  [Scroll down]  It was all just too convenient — the Democrat Party and their operatives in the media had all the bad news they needed to run with, incessantly, every single day.  The Chinese now had America in a weakened position with, they hoped, enough leverage among the Hollywood elite, professional athletes, and all of the media to carry the "bad orange man" message and negatively impact the upcoming election.  The messaging would not be enough, though.  Largely unknown Democrat party activists made sure to subvert election law in key cities and states and found either elected or appointed officials who would assist in enacting every election fraud conceivable.  All because of the pandemic, of course.  The same Democrat party propaganda ministry that presented the day-to-day, soul-crushing COVID-19 coverage, dutifully took part in covering up any negative press about the Biden Crime Family.  On election night, in those locations that were expected to have the tightest presidential election results, the counting stopped.  Overnight, votes for Joe Biden materialized and, by the weekend, the media gleefully anointed Joe Biden as President-Elect.  They then assured his installation with a non-stop barrage of reporting that the elections were "the most secure in our nation's history," so that there was "no evidence" of vote fraud, illegality, or malfeasance.

Democrats Discover Another 'Threat to Democracy'.  Before departing for its summer recess, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take up Moore v. Harper, a redistricting dispute between North Carolina's legislature and Supreme Court.  The latter struck down two congressional maps enacted by the former and then imposed its own redistricting scheme.  The North Carolina General Assembly petitioned SCOTUS to rule that this violated the U.S. Constitution.  Predictably, the mere fact that the justices agreed to hear the case at all has produced panic among Democrats and a deluge of dire predictions about the death of democracy.  Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe warns, "Adopting the independent state legislature theory would amount to right-wing justices making up law to create an outcome of one-party rule."  Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) predicts, "If accepted, this extreme theory would lay the groundwork to allow rogue state legislatures to overturn the will of the people in future elections."  The Democratic Association of Secretaries of State issued the following hysterical statement:  "The Supreme Court's decision to hear the 'independent state legislature' theory behind the Moore v. Harper case brings us one step closer to a judicial coup."

VoterGA Uncovers Massive Election Fraud in Georgia.  The election integrity group VoterGA has produced a new video on Georgia's 2020 election, and the video shows obvious and massive voter fraud.  This is one of the best videos that I've ever seen on how our elections are corrupted by using electronic voting machines.  It covers the deceptive practices used in the election night vote, and the "risk-limiting" audit, and the machine recount.  It's the best use of 56 minutes of your life right now — especially before the 2022 midterms.  [Video clip]

Latest Election Fraud Cases Underscore Importance of Election Integrity.  With the latest cases of impersonation, registration fraud, absentee ballot fraud, bribery, and illegal vote trafficking added to The Heritage Foundation's Election Fraud Database, the database now contains 1,365 proven instances of election fraud.  These cases demonstrate the wide variety of ways in which bad actors set out to submit fraudulent ballots or steal elections.  The database is not an exhaustive or comprehensive list of all election fraud in the states.  Rather, it presents a sampling of recent, proven instances of election fraud from across the country that is intended to highlight the many ways in which fraud has been committed.

Biden Is Seriously Ill.  [Scroll down]  But the question from Democrats' perspective is not whether they can win, but whether America will accept being told that Democrats have won.  When America wakes up again, after going to sleep election night with Republicans in the lead across the nation, and they're presented with another "red mirage" — with the result of millions and millions of votes magically appearing at 4 o'clock in the morning in all the most crucial districts — will they accept it?  Will they be willing to suspend disbelief, as voters in New York City and Chicago and San Francisco already do, when they are told that despite the disastrous tenure of the Democrats in office, the voters have decided to extend that tenure?  The Democrats can't hope to win.  They can only hope that getting rid of Biden will make a win seem plausible.  They can only hope that, when they cheat, Americans will let them get away with it rather than coming after them with pitchforks.

Election Heroes Are Stopping Fraudulent Voting... Right Now.  The soul of phantom voter fraud is the occasional, non-committed voter.  They show up at the last minute, delivering winning margins.  Actually, nobody shows up.  Nor does anyone return an absentee ballot.  That magic comes from a wonderful customer service innovation, the Phantom Voter Concierge, who casts the non-committed voters' votes for them.  Let's go there.  Voter rolls are crammed with millions of voters who seldom, occasionally, or never vote.  Democrat-leaning organizations run voter registration drives in edge communities, collecting identities they expect will never vote.  You remember ACORN registering drug addicts on city streets?  You might have said, "Why, they will never vote!"  They aren't expected to vote.  They are simply voter identity placeholders later used by vote-harvesters.

How the Left Hopes to Seize Control of Local Election Offices.  Two big money liberal operations, ready to spend $80 million each, are trying to determine who controls elections and how in the years ahead.  "The overall objective of the political left is to change the way you conduct overall elections," Jason Snead, executive director of the Honest Elections Project, which advocates clean elections, told The Daily Signal.  One of the two liberal groups, Run for Something, is a political action committee founded by a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer.  In the spring, Run for Something established its Clerk Work project with the goal of electing clerks, election supervisors, registrars, recorders, and other local officials charged with running elections.  The PAC says it will promote thousands of election administrators in the years ahead.  But for 2022, it reports endorsing 11 candidates competing in races in California, Colorado, Illinois, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, and Tennessee.

NeverTrump's Latest Attempt To Dismiss Election Concerns Is Particularly Dishonest.  A group of establishment Republicans released a report last week claiming to make "The Conservative Case that Trump Lost and Biden Won the 2020 Presidential Election."  It is not news that Joe Biden won the 2020 election.  The report's strawman-slaying title is intended to suggest that concerns about the integrity of that election are without merit.  But the report itself simply goes through court decisions and recounts, listing how they turned out.  It focuses on questions about "fraud," rather than the significant and extremely well-substantiated concerns Republican voters have about the election.  "Their methodology obscures the vast majority of actual material to consider if one were honestly engaging the problems," said Capital Research Center President Scott Walter.  His group has documented the significant role played by Mark Zuckerberg's private funding of government election offices, a massive issue that the report almost completely elided.

Data Supporting the Reported Results of the 2020 Election Does NOT Reconcile with Data in Voting Machine Files.  After the 2020 Election steal, we knew things were very wrong.  Now as experts dig into the 2020 Election results, the final results don't seem to reconcile with anything.  We learned in 2020 that American elections are a mess.  Now here we are a year and a half later and we are uncovering more evidence that the final results in 2020 never should have been certified.

The Push for Permanent Vote by Mail.  Leftists fell in love with all-mail elections in 2020.  Now they want to make vote by mail permanent.  Transforming our country's elections into a mail-in fiasco is a big step toward handing power over elections from the states to the federal government, empowering professional activists, inviting fraud, and damaging America's constitutional system.  It places the integrity of the republic in the hands of the U.S. Postal Service, the government agency that routinely delivers your neighbor's mail to your house.  And it promises to undermine public trust in electoral outcomes from now until doomsday, which could make the problems of the 2020 election routine.

Pennsylvania Bans 'Zuck Bucks' As Midterm Elections Approach.  Pennsylvania banned the use of private dollars to run elections last week after Governor Tom Wolf (D-PA) signed legislation from the Republican-led legislature.  SB 982 — sponsored by State Sen. Lisa Baker, a Republican who chairs the Pennsylvania Senate Judiciary Committee — prohibits officials from seeking funds from any nongovernmental entity for "the registration of voters or the preparation, administration or conducting of an election," and creates an "election integrity grant program" by which the commonwealth government can help counties administer elections. [...] Roughly 22 states have banned "Zuck Bucks," according to the Capital Research Center, while other states are presently debating bans.  The IRS does not allow 501(c)(3) nonprofits to engage in "voter education or registration activities" that "have the effect of favoring a candidate."

Another Video Depicting the Impossibility of the 2020 Election Results — This Time Fulton County, Georgia.  On Friday TGP presented two videos depicting the unexplainable results of the 2020 Election.  They were super hits.  Voter integrity investigator and data specialist Jeff O'Donnell prepared two videos that depicted the election reporting in two counties in Pennsylvania.  The videos showed the election reporting coming from the Edison reports that were provided to the media on election night and the days afterward.  The counties results that were depicted were Philidelphia County and Chester County.  Edison Research provided the live Edison reports for the 2020 election.  According to its website Edison Research provided the NEP with a fast and accurate vote count throughout the nation, providing data for all statewide races and all House races.  The national media outlets used the Edison data to report on and project national and state races.  When you see the data manipulation going on within the official data sets provided to the media there is no doubt that the 2020 Election results in the state were manipulated.

The Stolen Republic.  Why would the seated administration sue a state over a constitutionally verifiable action it takes — especially when 80% or more of its own supporters are in favor of that action?  Specifically why would *President Joe Biden choose to sue the state of Arizona over a state statute, handling the state's business?  You may say, "it's none of the Federal Government's business what that state decides internally within its borders."  And you would be right.  The Biden DOJ did that just a bit more than a week ago.  The state of Arizona, in conjunction with the will of its people, passed a law that requires proof of citizenship in order to be able to cast a ballot.  Many states already have such a rule.  So why Arizona?

Prosecutors Seek Prison for Democrat Caught Ballot Harvesting in 2020 Race.  Arizona prosecutors are seeking a prison sentence for a former Democrat mayor who has pleaded guilty to ballot harvesting in the 2020 primary election.  Former San Luis, Arizona, Mayor Guillermina Fuentes, a major local Democrat operative, pleaded guilty last month to felony ballot harvesting after having been indicted in December 2020. Another Democrat operative, Alma Juarez, was also indicted at the time and pleaded guilty in March of this year.

GOP Needs to Be Outside the Margin of Magic Mail-In Ballots in November.  As the all-important midterm elections of 2022 get closer, it's more pressing than ever for the GOP to prepare for whatever shenanigans-laden curveballs the Dems are sure to throw at them.  One would hope that the Republicans are finally aware that it's always a matter of "when" and not "if" the Democrats will try to underhandedly game an election, especially after the debacle of 2020.  During the Obama years, I used to say that any GOP candidate had to make sure that he or she was "outside the margin of ACORN."  I've updated that to "outside the margin of magic mail-in ballots."  I will never back away from my contention that vote-by-mail is a fraud-fest.  The fact that the Democrats keep trying to make it universal and not based on preference or need is all the proof any sane person should require to come to that conclusion.

The Sophisticated Deception of Massachusetts.  [Scroll down]  Massachusetts is so corrupt and one-sided that Democrats here don't even bother to hide their efforts at vote-rigging and partisan gamesmanship.  The first tip-off is that every statewide election is called on election night at 8:03 p.m. and the vote is always within a point or two of 62-38% for the Democrat.  Every protest to Secretary of State William Galvin goes unheeded and ignored.  Galvin — a lifelong political hack who has never held a productive job in the private sector — has been Secretary of State since 1995, the second-longest tenure of any politician in Massachusetts' history.  The quaint notion of "election integrity" doesn't appear on Galvin's horizon.

Judge orders arrest of Colorado county clerk Tina Peters.  A judge issued a warrant for the arrest of Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Tina Peters, who has been indicted on charges of tampering with voting machine equipment and is barred from administering the 2022 elections.  The arrest warrant comes in response to Peters's alleged violation of the terms of her bond by traveling to Las Vegas without giving proper notification to the court and attaining permission.  Her bond was also revoked by the judge.

Wisconsin Speaker Robin Vos:  An Election Do-Over Is Necessary if Overwhelming Fraud Proven in Court.  Jefferson Davis, with the Wisconsin Election Integrity Ad-Hoc Committee, wrote The Gateway Pundit today about an explosive development in the state of Wisconsin.  Recently, the Wisconsin Supreme Court on Friday, July 8, 2022, permanently outlawed ballot drop boxes in the state of Wisconsin.  The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that absentee drop boxes are illegal in the state.  The court ruled 4-3 that the drop boxes can only be placed INSIDE election offices.  Of course, this is horrible news for Democrats who rely on drop boxes to cheat in the elections with thousands of fraudulent votes.

Twelve Serious Questions for the Next Twelve Months.  [#1] Facing an electoral wipeout in November, will Democrats try to meddle in the elections?  Chances of using a crisis like the 2020 pandemic to alter, bypass, or influence local elections in the name of fairness are less likely now that some states have tightened voter ID requirements.  In addition, nineteen states have either prohibited or regulated private funding of elections.  That leaves four possible options, all of which are much more overt.  One is for Congress to pass an amnesty bill turning all of the millions of illegal aliens residing in the country into U.S. citizens, allowing them to vote.  President Biden could try using an executive order to do the same thing.  However, it is doubtful that the Supreme Court would see that as constitutional.  A second possibility is that Congress passes something similar to the For the People Act, which passed by the House of Representatives in 2021 but stalled in the Senate.  This would give the federal government control of the election process in all 50 states.  In addition, it would likely result in the expanded use of mail-in ballots, drop boxes, and ballot-harvesting, which were cited as problems during the 2020 election.

Investigation Reveals Operations of 'Powerful' Yuma County Democrat Who Admitted to Ballot Harvesting.  An undercover video at the polls helped investigators disrupt a local ballot harvesting operation run by a Democratic operative in Arizona, in a scheme that prosecutors have described as a "modern day political machine seeking to influence the outcome" of a 2020 municipal election.  Guillermina Fuentes, a former mayor of San Luis, and her associate Alma Juarez, earlier this year both pleaded guilty to one count of ballot abuse.  Fuentes admitted to illegally collecting early ballots from four persons who were not her family members during a Aug. 4, 2020, primary election in the border town of San Luis.  Fuentes, of Yuma County, is the owner of a local construction business, a board member of the Gadsden Elementary School District, former mayor of San Luis, Arizona, and a Democratic precinct committee person.

Democrats Prepare a Mid-Term October Surprise to Influence the Election.  Prior to the 2020 election, Democrats used the threat of COVID as an excuse to push through election law changes in a variety of states.  That included swing states like Pennsylvania.  Mail-in balloting became common, with unmonitored drop boxes being placed around cities.  Things like so-called "drive-thru voting" also became popularized as well as extensions that allowed ballots to be returned well after election day.  What that all added up to was a chaotic free-for-all of an election with very few guardrails, and that's exactly what Democrats want to see again in November.  You can even put aside the discussion over fraud.  The fact is that Democrats benefit from ballot harvesting and mass mail-in voting.  There's a reason they wanted to federalize those practices while eliminating election security provisions like voter ID.

Our Top Jurists Don't Care About Election Integrity.  The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Friday [7/8/2022] held that state election officials' use of some 500-plus drop boxes during the 2020 general election violated Wisconsin law. [...] In Teigen v. Wisconsin Elections Commission, the court declared that the Wisconsin Elections Commission, or "WEC," had illegally authorized election officials to use ballot drop boxes.  The high court further held the WEC exceeded its statutory authority when it declared that voters could hand off their ballots to third parties rather than personally deliver their own ballots to election officials.  The WEC had authorized ballot drop boxes and third-party ballot delivery in two documents issued in 2020, one in the spring before the primary election and the second before the November 2020 general election.

Illinois Top Democrat Spent Millions Meddling in GOP Gubernatorial Primary.  On June 28, Illinois held its gubernatorial primary election, which featured several Republican candidates, including Aurora Mayor Richard Irvin, State Senator Darren Bailey, and political outsider Jesse Sullivan.  Irvin, a popular local official who happens to be black, had been the favorite among the GOP candidates.  But a funny thing happened in the months leading up to the vote.  When the ballots were tallied, Irvin ended up in third place, well behind Bailey and the upstart Sullivan.  What happened?  The current governor of Illinois, J. B. Pritzker, a Democrat with hundreds of millions in his campaign's bank account and aspirations for higher political office, decided he would rather face Bailey in the general election.

Guillermina Fuentes Enters Guilty Plea in Yuma County Ballot Harvesting Case.  Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced that Guillermina Fuentes of San Luis pleaded guilty on Thursday to one count of Ballot Abuse, a Class 6 Felony, for her role in an August 2020 Primary Election "ballot harvesting" scheme where early ballots from other voters were collected and deposited into a ballot box on primary Election Day.  In December 2020, Fuentes and Alma Juarez, also of San Luis, were both indicted for 1 count each of Ballot Abuse, also known as "ballot harvesting."  In March 2022, Juarez entered a guilty plea to Ballot Abuse.  Arizona law only provides for a family member, household member, or caregiver of the voter to collect voted or unvoted early ballots from another person.  Under Arizona law ballot harvesting is a class 6 felony.

Biden Declared Illegitimate in Langland County.  Republicans in Langland County, WI, passed a resolution that declares Joe Biden an illegitimately elected president based on solid evidence that suggests rampant voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential election. [...] In an effort to bring awareness and justice to widespread election fraud, Langland County Republicans joined Maricopa County in AZ and the Texas GOP in rejecting the results of the 2020 Presidential Election, which claims Biden won by a landslide 81 million votes.  And we all know this is ridiculous for a man who campaigned from his basement.

Wisconsin Supreme Court rules absentee ballot boxes illegal under state law.  The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled Friday that the state's widespread use of ballot drop boxes is illegal, delivering a huge victory to election integrity activists and a stinging rebuke to state officials who had deployed the boxes to major success in the 2020 election.  In the court's 4-3 ruling, the justices rebuked the Wisconsin Elections Commission for distributing the boxes across the state, arguing that only the Wisconsin Legislature had the authority to approve their use.  "Only the legislature may permit absentee voting via ballot drop boxes," the court said in the ruling.  "WEC cannot.  Ballot drop boxes appear nowhere in the detailed statutory system for absentee voting.  WEC's authorization of ballot drop boxes was unlawful."

Democracy Depends on Voter ID.  As the federal government under President Biden continues its attempts to undermine the authority of the states to regulate their own elections — unconstitutional and unprecedented federal actions — states are reasserting their power by passing reforms that will protect the integrity of the electoral process.  Louisiana is a national leader on this and should continue its work of making it easy to vote and hard to cheat.  Election integrity is vital to a healthy democracy because Americans need to have confidence that their votes are protected.  A breakdown in any part of ballot protection can weaken this confidence, lead to questions regarding the legitimacy of election outcomes, and create a deeper distrust of government and the men and women who serve in it.  Protecting the vote includes ensuring that ballots are cast securely, privately, and legally.  It means making sure that every legally cast ballot is counted — and counted only once.  It also means providing for the transparent and timely reporting of election results as well as a meaningful post-election audit system to ferret out any irregularities.

"2000 Mules" Investigator Gregg Phillips Announces Investigative Team Has Identified Unique Devices from Inside the TCF Center During Late Night 2020 Election Ballot Dump.  On Tuesday, November 3rd President Trump was ahead of Joe Biden in the swing state of Michigan by over 100,000 votes.  This appeared to be another solid win for President Trump in Michigan with a greater margin than his 2016 victory.  The ballot counting in Detroit, Michigan on election night took place 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 observers from seeing in, where poll workers were militantly hostile to the GOP observers, and where hundreds of affidavits by election observers claim they witnessed voter fraud.  At least three election observers testified in sworn affidavits that they witnessed vehicles delivering fraudulent ballots to the TCF Center early in the morning on November 4th.  Michigander Shane Trejo witnessed the 3:30 am Biden Ballot Drop that gave Joe Biden an outstanding lift.  "There were thousands of ballots in each box," Trejo says.  "There were at least 50 boxes that I saw unloaded at 3:30 am, well after the 8:00 pm deadline for ballots to show up."

Conservatives in Nine States [are] Calling for Closed Primaries by 2024.  Conservative leaders in Georgia and Ohio are spearheading calls for Republicans to close their state primaries and allow only voters registered with their parties to participate in inter-party preliminary elections.  Atlanta Tea Party president Debbie Dooley and Ohio Republican gubernatorial candidate Jim Renacci both told The Epoch Times last week that Democrats are "weaponizing" cross-over voting to skew outcomes in key GOP primaries across the country to either ensure the election of moderates or to nominate candidates unlikely to be successful in a general election.  Dooley, Renacci, and other conservatives are calling on Republican lawmakers in their states to close primaries to only those registered with parties.  They join leaders of conservative groups and GOP legislators lobbying for more restrictive primary elections before the 2024 election cycle in at least seven other states — including Alabama, Montana, Missouri, Tennessee, New Hampshire, Wyoming, and Texas.

New Cracks in the Most Secure Election Narrative.  The conventional wisdom conveyed by the legacy media, the Democratic Party, and even a number of Republicans since November 2020 is that the 2020 election "was the most secure election in American history," according to Fox News.  This narrative was based on a joint statement made by the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council (GCC) Executive Committee and the Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Council (SCC) on Nov. 12, 2020.  Posted on the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) website, the joint statement included the following excerpt:  "The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. ... There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised." [...] Since the election, several cracks have occurred in the façade of that "most secure" narrative, including the result of the partial forensic analysis in Maricopa County (Arizona) reported out in August 2021, as well as an interim report provided in March 2022 by Michael Gableman, a former Wisconsin Supreme Court justice, that recommended Wisconsin decertify the 2020 election results in the state, as reported [elsew]here.  Both of these have been successfully stymied through legal maneuvers by those who would prefer to let sleeping dogs lie.

Justice Department sues Arizona over new election law requiring proof of citizenship.  The Justice Department sued the state of Arizona Tuesday to block a law that would require proof of citizenship to register to vote in the state.  The law, which Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed in March, is set to take effect in January.  According to the lawsuit, the Supreme Court rejected Arizona's previous attempt to require proof of citizenship in 2013, and the Justice Department argues this new law violates the National Voter Registration Act because it requires documented proof of citizenship in federal elections.  Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich released a statement Tuesday afternoon [7/5/2022] reacting to the DOJ's lawsuit, saying he'll yet again see the administration in court.

Here's What The Jan. 6 Show Trials Are Really After.  Scoring partisan points is not the only goal of the Jan. 6 Committee.  Rather, the carefully massaged hearings seek, at minimum, three broader political objectives.  One subtle, but overarching objective of the Jan. 6 Committee is to convince Americans that the 2020 election was the most secure in American history.  The hearings seek to achieve this by limiting their focus to select and disproven claims of election fraud, such as claims "that enemies of the former president hacked Dominion voting machines, flooded battleground states with counterfeit ballots, and engaged in other Machiavellian machinations to steal the 2020 election."  The committee completely ignores, however, "the verifiable evidence of systemic violations of election law, illegal voting, and the constitutionally deficient execution of the November 2020 election." Even more deceptively, throughout the hearings, the committee uses the word "fraud" to describe every complaint or challenge to the outcome of the 2020 general election, including Trump's legal challenges premised solely on violations of the state election code.  The committee's most blatant bait-and-switch in this regard came when the hearing framed a letter drafted by former Assistant Attorney General Jeff Clark as discussing bogus election fraud claims.

FBI, DOJ, CISA, EAC Collude with Leftist Activists & Election Officials.  PJ Media released a bombshell report by J. Christian Adams yesterday about the government colluding with far-left operations and election officials.  He obtained FOIAs that show collusion between the US government — the FBI, DOJ, EAC, and CISA — with progressive groups and individuals fueled by progressive money related to US elections.  The election groups included the Elections Group, CTCL, and Brennan Center.  Also involved were individuals from US corporations like Microsoft.  The collusion even included a person working for Maricopa County.  The FOIAs were submitted by the Public Interest Legal Foundation with which Adams is affiliated.  The corrupt relationships among them extend to junkets that include baseball games, travel, and even data exchanges between state officials and outside progressive groups.  However, what has emerged is far more dangerous than junkets and private funding of elections.

Several NYC Election Sites Had 'No Republican Ballots' During Last Week's Primary.  Last week's primary voting in New York City was a complete debacle — as the city's Board of Elections botched everything from polling locations opening late because of 'lost keys,' to missing equipment, to unannounced relocations of voting sites, to a lack of Republican ballots across at least three Big Apple election sites.  "We showed up to the poll site in Brooklyn, we showed up at 5 a.m. ... and there was no key," Spencer Mestel, a freelance writer, told the New York Post on Tuesday afternoon, adding that he saw poll workers turn away an elderly woman with a walker because they couldn't get in.

Supreme Court accepts historic case that could reshape powers of legislatures to set election rules.  The Supreme Court agreed Thursday to hear a major election case regarding North Carolina GOP lawmakers having the authority to draw a partisan election map without state judges' interfering.  The decision could impact future congressional and presidential elections.  The high court will take up the case when its next term begins in October.  The case of Moore vs.  Harper, asks the court to uphold the concept — known as the "independent state legislature" theory — that state legislators have the sole and "independent" authority to set rules for federal elections in their states, without interference or oversight by the governor or the state judges.

Over 150 Examples of Democrats Denying Election Results.  Biden and Democrats have a long history of contesting election outcomes.  Many Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and Barbra Lee (D-CA), Maxine Waters (D-CA), and Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), have cast doubt on every single Republican presidential victory in the last two decades.  Every single Democrat president since 1977 has cast doubt on the legitimacy of U.S. elections.  As recently as this year, Biden cast doubt on the legitimacy of the upcoming 2022 midterms.  For years, Democrats have refused to accept the results of the 2000 presidential election. [...] Hillary Clinton, more than once, questioned the legitimacy of the 2000 election.

Supreme Court to hear major case over state legislatures' power to set federal elections rules.  The Supreme Court on Thursday [6/30/2022] agreed to take up an elections case brought by North Carolina Republicans that could diminish the power of state courts to order changes to rules for federal elections and the redrawing of congressional districts approved by state lawmakers.  The dispute involves the "independent state legislature" theory, which was invoked by Chief Justice William Rehnquist's concurring opinion in Bush v. Gore and raised by former President Donald Trump and Republicans during the 2020 presidential election.  Under the theory, the Constitution grants state legislatures the sole authority to regulate federal elections in their states, without oversight from state courts.

NY Supreme Court strikes down Non-Citizen Voting Law.  Last year, the New York City Council passed legislation that allows non-citizens who have lived in the city for at least 30 days and are legal permanent residents in the U.S. to vote in city elections for mayor, public advocate, the borough president, and city council.  The law also applies to green card holders, individuals with workers' permits, and DACA recipients.  The law was set to go into effect on January 2023.  Fortunately, a group affiliated with the Republican National Committee filed a lawsuit challenging the legislation.  More than 800,000 non-citizens would have become eligible for voting rights if this new law had taken effect.

New York Supreme Court Strikes Down Law Allowing Non-Citizens to Vote in Local Elections.  The New York Supreme Court on Monday struck down a recently passed law that allows non-citizens to vote in local elections.  The New York City council passed a bill in December allowing legal residents, including those with green cards to vote in local elections beginning in 2023.  The "Our City, Our Vote" bill became law in January.  The law, which would've allowed an estimated 800,000 adults to vote for offices including mayor, was brought to the Supreme Court after Republican lawmakers filed a suit in the Staten Island Supreme Court.  Staten Island Justice Ralph J. Porzio wrote that giving non-citizens the right to vote would require a referendum, according to the New York Times.

More Warnings that Biden Is Hiding His Plans to Steal the 2022 Midterm Election.  Biden's policies are anti-American.  He's killing the economy.  He and his gang hate America and yet there is no pause or change of strategy with the 2022 election coming up.  It's full steam destruction ahead.  TGP reported on the Biden gang and how they look like they are preparing for another election steal, this time in the 2022 midterms.  An AP article tweeted by ABC News stating that the Dems were going to pick up seats in the House and Senate was later deleted by the left-wing news source.  This was a warning to Americans that the Biden gang was going to steal another election.  Mollie Hemmingway at the Federalist released a report late last week where she points out that the Biden Administration is working as hard as it can to load up voter rolls with new names just in time for the mid-terms.

Leaked Call with Prison Inmate Reveals Democrat Senate Candidate Calling For "Secret Sleepers" to Infiltrate South Carolina Republican Party.  Project Veritas on Sunday [6/26/2022] released leaked audio of a Democrat US Senate candidate's phone call with an inmate at Perry Correctional Institution calling for "secret sleepers" to infiltrate the South Carolina Republican party.  "We need some secret sleepers.  Like you need them to run as the other side, even though they for our side.  And we need them to win," Krystle Matthews, a Democrat South Carolina State Rep. running for US Senate said in the leaked audio.  "We need people to run as Republicans in these local elections.  This is the only way you're gonna change the dynamics in South Carolina."

South Carolina Senate Candidate Caught on Tape Advocating to Deploy Georgia Election Strategy.  Project Veritas Action, a subsidiary of Project Veritas, has released a leaked audio from South Carolina Democrat Krystle Matthews, promoting a political strategy where blacks infiltrate the republican party and use drug money to fund organized political changes. [...] What South Carolina Senate candidate Matthews is outlining in the leaked audio sounds remarkably similar to the prior successful operation of Georgia democrats and republicans.  The networks of the AME church and the political activists within the Black Lives Matter movement, coalesce by infiltrating the republican party and then working to support the agenda of the Democrat political apparatus.

A South Carolina Democrat strategizes about sleepers in Republican campaigns.  Project Veritas has done it again, this time with a video of a South Carolina Democrat candidate for the United States Senate strategizing with a prisoner to put Democrat sleepers into the Republican line-up as fifth columnist candidates.  Mixed in with whining, incoherence, and obscenities (often racial ones), Matthews articulates a foul plan for destroying democracy in a fight she feels is impossible to win by fair means. [...] It turns out, though, that Matthews isn't above "toxic politics" when it comes to plotting a Democrat takeover of South Carolina's strong Republican leanings.  We know that because Project Veritas Action obtained a recording of a February 15, 2022, phone call that Matthews had with David Solomon Ballard, an inmate at Perry Correctional Institution.  [Audio clip]

Democrat Senate candidate recommends leftist 'sleepers' contesting as Republicans for the mid-terms?  An audio clip released from Project Veritas Action yesterday [6/26/2022] revealed that South Carolina Democrat State Representative and candidate for U.S. Senate, Krystle Matthews, has some unconventional tactics to win the midterms.  [Audio clip]  The audio purportedly originated from a recorded conversation on Feb. 15, 2022, that occurred between Matthews and an inmate at Perry Correctional Institution.  It is troubling that Matthews is seeking campaign advice from a convicted criminal.  But that is the least problematic aspect of this revelation.  We hence focus on the content of the conversation. [...] These utterances prove the Democrats' proclivity for crime when they stand to gain.  It also reveals Matthew's bigotry of low expectations, she expects her fellow African Americans to be nothing more than dope dealers and criminals.  Matthews then proceeds to display her bigotry towards both her fellow African Americans and other races.  This smug feeling of superiority over regular people is synchronous with Democrat thinking.

AG Paxton:  More than 500 election fraud cases pending in Texas courts.  Attorney General Ken Paxton announced there are more than 500 election fraud cases pending in Texas courts.  "We will prosecute voter fraud every time we find it," Paxton said over the weekend.  "Currently, our office has over 500 cases waiting to be heard in court."  "Voter fraud is real," he said, and "Texans deserve to know their vote is legally and securely counted."  His announcement was made after the latest individual was arrested on a voter fraud charge on June 23.  Monica Mendez was arrested and booked into the Victoria County Jail after a Victoria County grand jury returned an indictment against her on multiple counts of election fraud.

Arizona Republican Party chair Kelli Ward subpoenaed by DOJ in fake elector scheme.  Kelli Ward, the head of the Arizona Republican Party, and her husband, Michael, received grand jury subpoenas from the Department of Justice regarding their involvement in a scheme to send fake electors to Congress on Jan. 6, 2021.  The subpoena for the Wards first was reported by the website Politico, which cited an unnamed source it said was familiar with the matter.  Alexander Kolodin, an attorney for the Wards, said to The Republic that "this is an investigation based on allegations that our clients engaged in core First Amendment-protected activity, namely petitioning Congress for a redress of grievances."

Sneaky Joe's new plan to steal the midterms.  Joe Biden has a new plan to rig and steal the midterms.  He's not only doing it now, he's been working on it for a while.  [Mollie] Hemingway notes that it probably isn't legal, given that the executive branch has no right to get involved with elections.  As a result, Biden and his Democrats are really determined to keep news of its basic details from the public: [...] The short way of describing the plot is that Biden has asked any federal agency that delivers government services of any kind to voters to be converted into a voting operation.  Any government jobs center is now converted to a voting registration or voter "outreach" center.  Ditto for any health care agency, any college, any housing agency.  Worse still, the Biden plan involves "partnering" with NGOs, which are partisan in the extreme and not subject to government rules against partisanship or political compaigning to get the dirty work done.

Technocracy 101: If Fed and CDC Are 'Independent,' Elections Mean Nothing.  Basic civics recap: the US president, per the Constitution, is the elected executive.  That means he is tasked with executing government functions.  He is granted — again, through a theoretically democratic election process — the authority to dictate government activities within the confines of the laws.  The legislative branch passes laws; the judicial branch vets them for constitutionality; the executive implements them.  The process, as designed, is not at all vague.  How odd, then, that the Biden White House press secretaries — first Jen Psaki and now the admitted diversity hire Karine Jean-Pierre — repeatedly undermine their own president's executive authority.  Whenever they're asked about Federal Reserve or CDC (Centers for Disease Control) policies — government agencies under the umbrella of executive authority — they refuse to give a straight answer on the grounds that the government body in question is "independent."  The WH has the same hands-off approach to the dictates of the CDC and the shadowy, unelected "experts" who set its policies.

Yes, Biden Is Hiding His Plan To Rig The 2022 Midterm Elections.  President Biden really does not want the public to know about his federal takeover of election administration.  Dozens of members of Congress have repeatedly asked for details, to no avail.  Good government groups, members of the media, and private citizens have filed requests under the Freedom of Information Act.  Not a single one has been responded to.  All signs indicate a concerted effort to keep the public in the dark until at least after the November midterm elections.  The lack of transparency and responsiveness is so bad that the Department of Justice and some of its agencies have been repeatedly sued for the information.  When President Biden ordered all 600 federal agencies to "expand citizens' opportunities to register to vote and to obtain information about, and participate in, the electoral process" on March 7, 2021, Republican politicians, Constitutional scholars, and election integrity specialists began to worry exactly what was up his sleeve.

Were the elections rigged?  It might not matter.  Elections will not legitimize any government if they are rigged.  We must end the absurdity whereby a private corporation can be hired to count our votes and then refuse to prove to us exactly how it got the final numbers.  If the system is not completely transparent and auditable, you can never be confident in it.  You can be completely justified in suspecting that it is fraudulent.  When the public no longer trusts those who count the votes, then the outcome will be chaos.  The 2020 election was rigged, but it is not up to us to prove that.  Instead of resisting audits every step of the way, the burden of proving otherwise falls on those who refuse to open the voting machines for inspection.  There can be no innocent motive to hide them.  Nor can there have been any justification for blocking observers from observing.  Given all the evidence, there is more than ample reason to suspect the vote-counters of cheating.  The stakes are too high for them to simply call upon their accusers to prove malfeasance, when the officials in charge of ensuring fair elections are the ones obstructing justice.  What matters even more, however, is the next election.  How much assurance do we have that it will be fair?  So far, not enough.

Election worker who Rudy Giuliani accused of passing a USB drive to her mother as part of ballot scam tells Jan. 6th committee it was actually a ginger mint.  Ex-Fulton County election worker Wandrea ArShaye 'Shaye' Moss told the Jan. 6 committee that she has received a barrage of harassment and threats after Rudy Giuliani accused her of passing along a USB connected to fake votes that turned out to be a ginger mint.  'It's turned my life upside down,' Moss said, adding that she hardly leaves the house, gained 60 lbs and oftentimes wouldn't even introduce herself using her real name.  Schiff asked the election worker: 'Mr. Giuliani accused you and your mother of passing some sort of USB drive to each other.  What was your mom actually handing you in that video?'  'A ginger mint,' Moss said.

Open Records Request for Emails Between Brad Raffensperger and Taiwan Immigrant Finally Received But Were 90% Redacted.  Self-proclaimed man of integrity Brad Raffensperger doesn't want Americans to know what he really knows.  A request for emails between Raffensperger and a Taiwan immigrant was finally returned but 90% of the documents were redacted.  What's really going on?  Brad Raffensperger became famous for his actions in certifying the 2020 Election in Georgia for Joe Biden.  Despite impossible results that Raffensperger himself said weren't possible the day after the 2020 Election, a few days later Raffensperger certified the election in the state for Joe Biden.  Raffensperger was provided evidence of tens of thousands of ballots counted in the state's 2020 results being invalid or fraudulent and he ignored the data and certified the election for Bidey by 12,000 votes. [...] Today Raffensperger spoke in front of the unconstitutional kangaroo court labeled the Jan 6 committee.  Raffensperger is not innocent of election crimes, he's part of it but that isn't why he was there.  He was there in an effort to accuse President Trump of wrongdoing for daring to suggest that the election results in Georgia should be fair and transparent.

Rep. Mark Finchem Seeks Preliminary Injunction Against Use of Electronic Voting Machines in Arizona.  State Representative Mark Finchem announced that attorneys, including Alan Dershowitz, representing him and Kari Lake, today filed a motion for a preliminary injunction in federal court to stop the use of "unsecure black box electronic voting machines" in Arizona.  Representative Finchem issued the following statement regarding the filing:  ["]We have filed a motion seeking to ban the use of black box electronic voting machines in Arizona's elections while the case is pending.  It's a reasonable question to ask the defendants whether they know how these electronic machines actually work.  They are a BLACK BOX — and the voting machine companies REFUSE to make their systems and software open to the public.  WHY WOULD ANYONE TRUST THEM?["]  The lawsuit alleges, among other things, that the documented and unfixable security failures in electronic voting machines — and the lack transparency in these voting systems — violates citizens' constitutional rights and 42 U.S. § 1983 including:  the Fundamental Right to Vote in Violation of the Fourteenth Amendment; and the Fourteenth Amendment's Guarantee of Equal Protection.

Best Practices and Standards for Election Audits.  Conducting audits of U.S. elections should be a routine practice, the same way audits are a routine practice in the business community and other fields of society.  Such audits are necessary to ensure the proper conduct of the entire election system, from the registration of eligible voters to the casting of ballots to the tabulation and reporting of the election results.  Such a requirement should be imposed and enforced by state law and state officials to guarantee not only the honesty and effectiveness of the election process, but to assure the public, candidates, political parties, and the media that they can be confident in the security and integrity of elections.

Adam Schiff Claims 'Evidence' of Trump Election Fraud Before Playing a Familiar Game.  Adam Schiff is back on cable news proclaiming [...] evidence against Donald Trump.  This time, it's not about now-debunked Russian collusion.  Rather, it's about January 6th and the idea that the former president was part of a conspiracy to illegally attempt to overturn the election.  While appearing with Martha Raddatz on CNN, a second home for Schiff since the early days of the Trump administration, the California congressman asserted that he "has evidence" that the former president actively participated in a January 6th scheme to produce fake electors.  [Tweet]  There are several things to consider here, not the least of which is whether anything Schiff is talking about is even illegal.  Obviously, there's a long history of politicians challenging elections in the United States.  After all, two current members of the January 6th committee challenged the certification of the 2004 and 2016 elections, respectively.  In this case, there was talk of producing an "alternate" slate of electors who would not cast their votes for Biden, despite the results in their states.  Ironically, the idea that a state's electors could ignore the election results and vote their "conscience" was pioneered by Democrats in 2016, with the suggestion that Trump could be denied the White House.  Now, the same people who didn't have a problem entertaining that scheme want to pretend it's some massive conspiracy for Trump associates to talk about it four years later.

Texas Republicans declare Biden's 2020 election win illegitimate at state convention.  Republicans in Texas formally rejected President Joe Biden's election in 2020 as illegitimate and voted in a state-wide convention that wrapped up this weekend on a party platform that calls homosexuality an 'abnormal lifestyle choice.'  The convention was held at the George R. Brown Convention Center from Thursday until Saturday, and the vote to reject Biden's election win was a verbal one.  That resolution said: 'We believe that the 2020 election violated Article 1 and 2 of the US Constitution, that various secretaries of state illegally circumvented their state legislatures in conducting their elections in multiple ways, including by allowing ballots to be received after November 3 2020.'

If You Don't Care About Election Integrity, You're A Bad American.  Less than two decades ago Americans so universally believed that election integrity mattered that when the bipartisan Commission on Election Reform issued its 100-plus page report, "Building Confidence in U.S. Elections," the twin goals of election integrity and voting access received equal treatment. [...] The bipartisan-endorsed fundamentals underlying the report included two unanimously accepted judgments related to election integrity.  First, "elections are the heart of democracy" and "if elections are defective, the entire democratic system is at risk."  Second, and a corollary to the first:  confidence in elections matters equally, and in fact "is central to our nation's democracy."  On this latter principle, the commission elaborated:  "Democracy is endangered when people believe that their votes do not matter or are not counted correctly."  "Little can undermine democracy more than a widespread belief among the people that elections are neither fair nor legitimate," the report stressed.  That same bipartisan report also recognized that while the losing side may be "unhappy with the results," there is something "new and dangerous" taking place in the United States:  "Supporters of the losing side are beginning to believe that the process is unfair.  And this is true of both parties."

D'Souza's Mules Left Tracks.  Many conservative commentators have noted that Dinesh D'Souza's documentary, 2000 Mules, offers compelling evidence of large-scale vote fraud.  It offers more than this, though.  It provides compelling evidence of a massive, centrally coordinated conspiracy to commit vote fraud.  Examining several states with different voter laws while focusing on just one form of fraud, the movie found that the method of fraud was executed identically in each of these states.  That is prima facie evidence of central organization and management.  From the moment counting was stopped in the dead of night in five Democrat-run swing states on election night, Democrats and the media have treated anyone who questioned election integrity in 2020 like a mob boss treats anyone who threatens to testify against him:  shut up, or we will cancel you.  Democrats and the media routinely smear anyone who questions the election results as a conspiracy theorist.  They routinely pronounce any evidence that emerges as "debunked."

Drop boxes were critical for the Biden Regime to steal the 2020 POTUS election.  The pandemic was the ultimate excuse for drop boxes and mail-in ballots that secured the steal for the super-unpopular Sleepy Joe Biden in November of 2020, especially in the swing states.  One only needs to view 2000 Mules once to realize the depth and breadth of the most warped election to ever take place on US soil, and just look at the damage that's already been done. [...] Who has the authority to drop absentee ballots in drop boxes?  Can anyone?  What happens to the 'chain of custody' when we're supposed to be safeguarding the integrity of the election process?  And shouldn't there be watermarks and serial numbers (maybe even social security numbers) on every ballot, to prevent counterfeiting, just like with money?  Are valid elections as important as valid currency in this country?  Where are the verification machines, independent verification security committees, serial numbers, watermarks and holograms on voting ballots?

Mail-In Ballots Found Discarded Along California Freeway.  The U.S. Postal Inspection Service and officials with San Diego County's elections office confirmed they are investigating mail-in ballots that were found scattered along a local San Diego freeway this week.  Several ballots were found by a local driver, Brent Walters, who told Fox5 San Diego that he found them on June 7 on the same day as California's primary elections near Route 163 and Interstate 8.  Walters told the outlet that he found the small stack, took photos, and shared his concerns with the office of San Diego County Registrar of Voters Cynthia Paes.  Paes confirmed that they collected the unopened mail-in ballots from Walters.  It's not clear how the mail ended up on the side of an interstate.

New Mexico Supreme Court orders county commission to certify primary results.  The New Mexico Supreme Court ordered county commissioners in Otero County to certify the election results of the June 7 primary after they refused to do so, having cited distrust of Dominion Voting Systems vote-tallying machines.  The court granted an emergency motion filed by New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver (D) to compel the Republican-led commission to certify the election results by Friday.  "The voters and candidates of Otero County can now be assured that their voices will be heard in full.  Though it was sad to see the Commission give in to discredited conspiracy theories," Toulouse Oliver wrote after the decision.  Her office may levy a criminal referral with the state attorney general, which could lead to the three-member board being charged with contempt of court if they do not follow the court's orders, a spokesperson told the Washington Post.

There's nothing fishy about this.  And if you say there is, you're a racist.
Vote-by-Mail Puts Karen Bass Ahead of Rick Caruso in L.A. Mayor's Race; 8-Point Swing.  Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) has overtaken billionaire developer Rick Caruso in the primary race for mayor of Los Angeles, thanks to vote-by-mail that has led to an eight-point swing in the results.  Caruso, a Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat, is running as a political outsider promising to fix homelessness and crime in the city.  Bass, a left-wing activist-turned-Washington insider, is the favorite of the party establishment.  On Election Night, Caruso had more votes, leading Bass by a proportion of 41% to 38%.  In the week since, that proportion has reversed itself.

It is time to admit that the American left is malevolent.  The Biden administration, the FBI, and the DOJ are willfully ignoring the Constitution and countless laws regarding the border, medical freedom, election integrity, the protection of the Supreme Court Justices, and our freedom of speech.  They abhor the views and values of conservatives and mean to squelch them.  They call any speech with which they disagree "disinformation."  Thus, their campaign against what they call "the big lie," that the 2020 election was stolen.  While Democrats and some Republicans have fervently resisted the investigations into vote fraud in their states, there is more than enough proof of wide-spread cheating in Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Nevada.  Thousands of fraudulent ballots were counted, (Bill Barr shut down an investigation into those delivered to Pennsylvania from NY), drop boxes were stuffed by ballot traffickers, dead voters voted, out of state voters voted, non-existent ghost voters voted, etc. not to mention Mark Elias' finagling of election law in numerous states and the hundreds of millions Zuckerberg invested in an illegitimate Biden victory.  Had the election been fair, it is clear that Trump won Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania.

Flashback: Former AG Barr Shut Down Investigations into a Trailer Load of 288,000 Ballots into PA from New York in 2020 Election.  Truck driver Jesse Morgan moved mail for the US Postal Service and came out after the election and shared his story of how he hauled tens of thousands of ballots from New York to Pennsylvania before the 2020 Election.  We reported on this in December 2020.  We learned in the summer of 2021 that former US Attorney General Bill Barr ordered the US Attorney in Eastern Pennsylvania to stop investigating 2020 Election issues in the state and turn any issues over to the Democrat Pennsylvania Attorney General.  This would have included the reports of approximately 288,000 ballots entering Pennsylvania on a semi-trailer from New York.

Surveillance Video Shows Man Wearing Street Clothes Exiting Passenger Seat of Post Office Truck In Detroit — Dumps Stack of Ballots In Dropbox Twice!  The Gateway Pundit and 100 Percent Fed Up with the help of the investigative team at Mc4EI, have released several videos showing individuals jamming multiple ballots into drop boxes as well as two close-up videos of individuals who appear to be signing the envelopes of other people's ballots.  Today, we present yet another stunning discovery at an absentee ballot drop box at the Liberty Temple satellite voting center in Detroit.  In the video below, a man dressed in street clothes exits the front passenger seat of a postal worker's truck and stuffs a stack of ballots into the absentee ballot drop box in Detroit.  In a second video taken on the same day, the same man exits the passenger side of the USPS truck and delivers an even larger stack of ballots into the slot of the drop box.  In this video, you can clearly see he is recording the drop on his cell phone in his left hand.  [Video clip]

Lawsuit Forces Pennsylvania To Ensure It Takes Dead Voters Off Its Voter Rolls.  The state of Pennsylvania has agreed to take steps to remove deceased voters from being able to vote following a settled lawsuit filed by The Public Interest Legal Foundation.  The suit, filed in November, alleged that at least 21,000 deceased individuals were still on voter rolls during the 2020 presidential election.  Data compiled by the Watchdog group alleged that more than 9,200 of the people registered had been dead for at least five years, in addition to nearly 1,990 that had been dead for 10 years.  An estimated 197 voters were dead for at least twenty years.  The Pennsylvania Department of State did not agree in the settlement with the number of dead voters.

Otero County New Mexico Votes to Remove Dominion Voting Systems, Zuckerberg Drop Boxes, and Other Election Machines!.  The Otero County Commission had a long day of discussions and reports today and then they landed upon the issues with the 2020 Election.  They voted to eliminate voting machines in the county! [...] These commissioners were fearless.  The more flack they got the more they knew they were over the target.  They wanted every legal vote to count.

Observing Our Way to Third-World Elections.  On Sunday, June 5, two friends and I witnessed the absurdity of the California election process at the Orange County Registrar of Voters (ROV) facility in Santa Ana.  As public observers, which anyone can do, we watched the ludicrous process that basically empowers temporary workers to become what can best be called "signature experts."  These workers have immense authority in determining which ballots are valid and which might be fraudulent.  Third-world countries would probably reject the way ballot signatures are verified in Orange County.  The (mostly temp) ROV workers sit at computers comparing primary ballot signatures to registration signatures.  About ten feet behind each worker, observers watch what they are doing on large monitors.  What my friends and I observed were ROV "signature experts" quickly reviewing eight signatures in approximately five seconds:  four primary ballot signatures and four registration signatures.  Could you continually review eight signatures every five seconds?  When observers see a discrepancy between a ballot signature and a registration signature, they can do nothing!  They cannot ask the ROV temp workers to re-examine the signature they had just verified.  They cannot write down the voter's name for an ROV staff member to later review.  The only thing observers can do is stand like statues i.e., quietly observing the process.

Wisconsin 2020 election special counsel office held in contempt as sparks fly in court.  A Wisconsin judge held the Office of Special Counsel, which is tasked with investigating possible malfeasance during the 2020 election, in contempt of court on Friday [6/10/2022].  Former state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman, who helms the special counsel office, declined to answer questions about his approach to public records requests and scorned Dane County Circuit Court Judge Frank Remington during a fiery court appearance Friday.  "You don't have a right to act as an advocate for one party over the other.  I want personal counsel.  If you are putting jail on the table, I want a personal attorney to represent me.  I will not answer any more questions," a defiant Gableman proclaimed, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.  "You want to put me in jail, Judge Remington. ... I'm not going to be railroaded."

Wrong-Size Ballots Delay Results in Montana US House Race.  Ballot printing errors have delayed election results for Montana's new congressional seat, forcing a small northwestern county to count votes by hand in the Republican primary race between former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and former state Sen. Al "Doc" Olszewski.  Zinke led Olszewski by 1,064 votes, or 1.3 percentage points, out of 79,198 votes counted, as of 11 a.m. local time Wednesday.  Missoula County has 2,500 outstanding ballots that aren't expected to be counted until Monday, while Lincoln County has an estimated 6,000 ballots to hand count.  A vendor printed the Lincoln County ballots on the wrong-sized paper, and they could not be run through a machine tabulator, the secretary of state's office said Wednesday.  By law, ballots have to either all be counted by machine or all counted by hand, spokesperson Richie Melby said.

Unless the ballots are after-market counterfeits, how could this happen?  Wouldn't they have been tested weeks ago?

Dem Rep Pleads Guilty to Mass Voter Fraud:  Thousands of Dollars Paid to Crooked Judges.  Former Democratic House Rep. Michael "Ozzie" Myers of Pennsylvania pleaded guilty Monday, admitting that he spearheaded a scheme to manipulate state election results in favor of Democratic candidates.  The disgraced former Philadelphia congressman had become a political operative after his conviction in the FBI's Abscam sting of the 1970s and '80s.  This time around, he was accused of bribing judges to stuff ballot boxes and falsely certify manipulated results during the state's 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 elections.  Myers pleaded guilty to "conspiracy to deprive voters of civil rights, bribery, obstruction of justice, falsification of voting records, and conspiring to illegally vote in a federal election," U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Jennifer Arbittier Williams announced Monday.

Former Pennsylvania Democrat Congressman Pleads Guilty to Fraudulently Stuffing Ballot Boxes For Democrat Candidates.  A former Democrat congressman pleaded guilty in a ballot stuffing case this week.  Michael J. "Ozzie" Myers, an "old school" Philly Democrat pleaded guilty Monday to violations of election law, conspiracy, bribery and obstruction.  The federal government said ballots were stuffed in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary elections and Myers was the the mastermind behind that ballot stuffing scheme.

Democrat Pleads Guilty to Ballot Stuffing in Pennsylvania.  That thing that we are assured never happens, happened.  Former Democrat US Rep. Michael "Ozzie" Myers has pled guilty to multiple charges related to a scheme to stuff ballot boxes for Democrat candidates between 2014 and 2018.  Myers has a checkered history, having been expelled from Congress for accepting bribes.  Apparently, he didn't learn his lesson and has been running a ring of corruption for decades. [...] According to the report, Myers bribed a judge of elections in Philidelphia to add votes to the candidates of his choice, again, all Democrats.  Those bribes totaled hundreds of thousands of dollars, so this was no small operation.  Further, Myers also conspired with another elections judge in a scheme to push people to vote for certain candidates.  Lastly, that judge also cast votes for candidates who weren't even on the ballot.

Politico warns 'a lot of white folks from the suburbs' becoming poll workers, to ensure election integrity.  A Politico reporter is ringing the alarm bell over what she believes could be a huge scandal brewin' in the 'burbs over election integrity through the weaponization of white people.  Reporter Heidi Przybyla appeared on MSNBC's "Velshi" to express her concern about "white folks from the suburbs" becoming precinct workers and "targeting" minority left-leaning districts.  Her scare comes in response to a report she did on audio recordings earlier this week that heard from top GOP officials describing the Republican strategy — of participating more in the election process.  The recordings include the voice of Matthew Seifried, election integrity director for the Republican National Committee in Michigan who described the plan by noting, "it's going to be an army."

Elections Undecided by Midnight are Void & Preempted by Federal Law — Foster v Love (1997; 9-0 Decision).  "When the federal statutes speak of 'the election'... they plainly refer to the combined actions of voters and officials meant to make a final selection of an officeholder...  By establishing a particular day as 'the day' on which these actions must take place, the statutes simply regulate the time of the election, a matter on which the Constitution explicitly gives Congress the final say."  Foster v. Love, 522 U.S. 67, 71-72 (1997)  We will take a closer at this binding precedent below, but in preview, please understand that it emanates from a 9-0 decision of the United States Supreme Court, wherein the entire Court joined, not just the outcome, but also the opinion on this very point.  The voters vote.  The officials count.  These combined actions form "the election," and the election must be decided on the day.  States that failed to make a final selection of officeholder by midnight after Election Day have violated the statute, subjecting the nation at large to the very evils Congressionally mandated deadlines were drafted to prevent.  Federal Election Day statutes were designed to curtail fraud, and to infuse a prima facie sense of integrity in our electoral process.  But these States — in failing to obey Congressional deadlines — have flagrantly attempted to preempt federal law.  This is certainly prohibited, and this is why the late election results are void.

Suspicious technology group to spend $80 million 'improving' election operations across America.  A controversial organization once funded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has launched an $80 million initiative ostensibly to "improve" operations of local elections, but which critics suspect has a far more nefarious purpose.  The National Pulse reports that the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) has announced the so-called U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence, a "nonpartisan collaborative that is bringing together election officials, designers, technologists, and other experts to help local election departments improve operations, develop a set of shared standards and values, and obtain access to best-in-class resources to run successful elections."

Hero Sheriff Sues Lawless MI AG Nessel, Dishonest MI SOS Benson For Interfering, Obstructing and Covering Up Crimes In Election Fraud Investigations.  Hero and American treasure, Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf and the Barry County Sheriff's Office is suing MI Attorney General Dana Nessel, MI Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, the Director of MI Bureau of Elections Jonathan Brater, the MI State Police, MI State Police Trooper Bryan Fuller and MI State Police Trooper David Geyer in their official and individual capacity. [...] Sheriff Dar Leaf's lawsuit addresses the lawless and obstructive actions of Attorney General Dana Nessel, who regularly mocks and threatens her political opponents, together with Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, who's blocked the efforts of citizens and law enforcement to investigate voter fraud and voter irregularities related to the 2020 election.  Benson has also been caught in numerous lies related to the election and like her fellow Democrat activist attorney general, she has mocked and threatened her political opponents while preventing Sheriff Dar to perform his duties and responsibilities as an elected official.

Federal Cyber Officials Admit:  Dominion Voting Machines Vulnerable to Hacking, Fraud.  "Electronic voting machines from a leading vendor used in at least 16 states have software vulnerabilities that leave them susceptible to hacking if unaddressed, the nation's leading cybersecurity agency says in an advisory sent to state election officials."  So reported Associated Press on May 31 regarding an "advisory" issued by the federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) to state officials.  The Associated Press obtained a copy of the document, which has not yet been released to the public.  The CISA advisory, reports AP, focused on Dominion Voting Systems and "details nine vulnerabilities and suggests protective measures to prevent or detect their exploitation."

Highly Anticipated CISA Report on Dominion Voting Machines Proves 'Most Secure Election in History' Was a Lie.  A highly anticipated report issued Friday by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, also known as CISA, is providing official documentation of the major security flaws posed by Dominion Voting Systems Machines.  It comes nearly two years after the 2020 presidential election, which the agency had called the "most secure election in history."  While the CISA report states that it has "no evidence that these vulnerabilities have been exploited in any elections," it nonetheless highlights at least nine concrete, alarming security vulnerabilities.  The CISA report was issued based on the analysis of J. Alex Halderman of the University of Michigan, and Drew Springall of Auburn University.

Homeland Security Admits Dominion Voting Systems Have Inherent Vulnerabilities Easily Manipulated by Local Election Officials.  Last week we highlighted how the U.S. intelligence community public relations firm, The Washington Post, was getting out ahead of an election security report.  There was a blitz of media reporting with transparent timing in advance of the Dept of Homeland Security (DHS), Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), releasing their findings of Dominion voting systems.  Late Friday [5/3/2022] the DHS report and advisory was released.  Within the advisory CISA admitted there are major vulnerabilities within the Dominion electronic voting system.  However, they also claim there is "no evidence that these vulnerabilities have been exploited in any elections," and they base that on a very thin defense.

Yuma County Woman Guillermina Fuentes Finally Pleads Guilty In Ballot Trafficking Case.  Gadsden Elementary School Board Member and former Mayor of San Luis Guillermina Fuentes has pleaded guilty to her role in a sophisticated ballot trafficking ring during the 2020 Arizona primary.  Fuentes was originally indicted for two Class 4 felonies of Forgery and Conspiracy, a Class 5 felony of Ballot Abuse, and a Class 6 felony of Ballot Abuse.  She pleaded guilty to only one class 6 felony for ballot abuse, despite trafficking many ballots and forging signatures on ballots.  The charges for ballot signature forgery were dropped.

Michigan Supreme Court ruling keeps GOP gubernatorial candidates off ballot.  At least three Republican candidates vying to take the governor's seat in Michigan will not appear on the August primary ballot after a high court decision ended their campaigns after days of legal battles and appeals to qualify.  The Michigan Supreme Court on Friday [6/3/2022] sided with the state Bureau of Elections in its rulings that presumptive front-runner and former Detroit Police Chief James Craig, businessman Perry Johnson, and financial adviser Michael Markey did not qualify to appear on the primary ballot.  The three candidates were initially ruled ineligible in May after the state found they failed to submit enough valid petition signatures.  The decision puts an end to the candidates' last-ditch efforts to become the Republican nominee and face Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in November.  The ruling came just hours before the Bureau of Elections was set to send a finalized list of candidates to county clerks so absentee ballots could be mailed out.

Zuckerberg Group Spending $80M to Hijack Local Election Practices and Help Liberals.  The Center for Tech and Civic Life — a nonprofit group that controversially used funds from Mark Zuckerberg to boost turnout for Democrats in the 2020 election — launched a new $80 million initiative targeting local election departments.  Under the leadership of Tiana Epps-Johnson, the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) overruled local election officials and increase turnout in almost exclusively Democratic districts through mail-in voting in 2020.  Proving the partisan conflict of interest, the CTCL supported many election offices' shifts to vote-by-mail and allegedly accessed mail-in ballots ahead of the election using funds from the Facebook founder's Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.  Though the group purports to be nonpartisan, following several exposés into the group's left-wing bias, the CTCL appears to be launching a new $80 million initiative to extend its influence over America's election departments.

Yuma County Sheriff's Office Reveals 16 Open Voter Fraud Cases, Warns of 'Pattern' Leading Up To the 2022 Primaries.  According to a press release, the Yuma County Sheriff's Office in the great state of Arizona and the Yuma County Recorder's Office are working together to examine 16 active cases of voter fraud related to the 2020 presidential election.  Kari Lake, the popular Trump-endorsed Republican gubernatorial candidate for Arizona, commented on the news on Twitter.  "This is a step in the right direction," Lake stated.  "May this be the beginning of Justice for the Rigged 2020 election."

New election integrity fears:  Georgia county ballot machines off by thousands when hand counted.  The Democratic primary for a Georgia county has been called into question after a hand count revealed the voting machines were off by thousands of ballots.  Marshall Orson, a Democratic DeKalb County school board member running for the county commission, asked the local elections board on Thursday to not certify the results as scheduled on Friday due to "numerous issues" with the race.  Orson asked for an "independent review" and a formal recount of the election in his letter to the board, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.  "There is no rational basis for believing that there are not continuing issues with the results and the results should not be certified with the continuing existence of multiple substantive issues and concerns," Orson wrote.

Elections Security Watchdog Blows the Whistle on Serious Vulnerabilities in Dominion Voting Systems Machines.  It's 2022.  Two years after one of the most hotly contested elections in U.S. history.  And elections security "watchdog" the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, also known as CISA, is finally admitting what many have known all along:  Dominion Voting Systems has serious election security vulnerabilities.  The Associated Press reported on Wednesday about CISA issuing an alert about the Dominion voting machines.  It is heavily weighted with verbiage meant to spurn anyone who might come to the conclusion that the 2020 election was "stolen."  It is worth citing the AP, nonetheless.  "Electronic voting machines from a leading vendor used in at least 16 states have software vulnerabilities that leave them susceptible to hacking if unaddressed, the nation's leading cybersecurity agency says in an advisory sent to state election officials," the report said.

Local Election Forced to Be Overturned Due to Voter Fraud:  Winner Charged with Fraud and Bribery.  A city councilman in California has been removed from office after a judge ruled some of the votes cast for him were illegal.  According to the Los Angeles Times, Compton Councilman Isaac Galvan was initially determined to have beaten challenger Andre Spicer in a June 2021 runoff election by a count of 855 to 854.  However, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office charged Galvan with election rigging and bribery in August 2021.  On Friday, Superior Court Judge Michelle Williams Court ruled four of the ballots cast for Galvan were from people who lived in other districts.  With those four ballots ruled out, Spicer defeated Galvan 854 to 851, Court ruled.

Here Is The Evidence.  Due to the irregularity of this current 2020 Presidential Election, this is a crowdsourcing tool for organizing anomalies and legal issues.  Our desire is that more of the election process would be made transparent so there would be unquestionable confidence in our voting systems.

Report: 19,000 Late Ballots in Arizona 2020 Election.  Newly uncovered records from Maricopa County show 19,000 invalid ballots were counted in Arizona's 2020 general election.  An election integrity group Says the amount is enough to have potentially swayed results in the state's presidential election.  [Video clip]

Open primaries open the door to suspiciously fraudulent victories.  Ah, the good old days, when Democrats voted in Democrat primaries and Republicans voted in Republican primaries.  Those registered to other parties voted for candidates who held conventions in IHOP restaurants.  Not content with one-person, one-vote elections (even including the dead), Democrats used the pandemic to promote mail-in voting to ballot-harvest their way to suspiciously fraudulent victories.  Now some Democrats want more dubious election results with open primaries.  Currently, 22 states have open primaries that allow crossover voting.  Some Democrats plan to take full advantage of the opportunity.

Alleged Voter Fraud Leads to Overturned Result in Local California Election.  The results of a Council seat race in Compton, California, were overturned in the midst of an election fraud scandal that resulted in charges against the winner.  Compton Councilman Isaac Galvan must be replaced by the challenger, Andre Spicer, after a judge said that four votes in the race — which was decided by only one vote — were sent in by people who didn't live in the district, according to a ruling on May 27.  During a runoff, Galvan defeated Spicer with 855 votes to 854.  But with four votes being disqualified, Superior Court Judge Michelle Williams Court ruled Spicer was the winner, reported the Los Angeles Times.  Galvan was arrested last year along with five other individuals.

Judge Alito Halts Recount of Ballots Received with No Required Date After the Recent Primary.  [Scroll down]  Unfortunately, it likely doesn't matter what Justice Alito says.  In the 2020 Election, Justice Alito told the state of Pennsylvania to set aside all ballots that were received after election day.  The corrupt actors in the state claimed that they did and only 10,000 or so ballots arrived after election day.  However, on election day President Trump was up in Pennsylvania by nearly a 2 to 1 ratio and 700,000 ballots at one point in time.  Then over the next four days, the state began counting absentee ballots, never once reporting how many ballots were to be counted and at the end of four days they had manufactured enough ballots to steal the election in Pennsylvania for Joe Biden.

Some Democrats [are] voting in GOP primaries to block Trump picks.  Diane Murray struggled with her decision all the way up to Election Day.  But when the time came, the 54-year-old Georgia Democrat cast a ballot in last week's Republican primary for Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.  While state law allowed her to participate in either party's primary, she said it felt like a violation of her core values to vote for the Republican.  But it had to be done, she decided, to prevent a Donald Trump -backed "election denier" from becoming the battleground state's election chief.

DHS and Intel Community Media Outlets Proactively Move to Defend Dominion Voting Systems Ahead of Report on Electronic Election Hardware Issues Coming This Week.  A 100-page report on electronic voting systems, by University of Michigan computer scientist J. Alex Halderman, remains under seal in a federal court in Atlanta as an outcome of election integrity lawsuits surrounding the Dominion voting system.  That report is rumored to be released soon, perhaps as early as this week.  In what appears to be a proactive move to get out ahead of identified voting system irregularities specific to the electronic voting systems, the Dept of Homeland Security, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (DHS-CISA), updated the election page on their website under the "Rumor Control" section.  DHS made the update on May 27, 2022, last week.  The very next day, May 28, 2022, The Washington Post produces an article describing an upcoming DHS-CISA 5-page memorandum that is in the process of being sent to the states ahead of a public release.

"2000 Mules" Investigator Gregg Phillips Drops a Bomb:  Investigators Discovered Multinational Player and Federal Agencies Involved in Operation.  Catherine Engelbrecht is the founder of True the Vote, an election integrity project launched in 2009.  Gregg Phillips has been in conservative politics for 40 years, working with committees, parties, campaigns, and election intelligence operations.  He has built political apps including GROUND, ARC, and IV3.  Gregg was also a founder and Managing Partner of the pro-Gingrich SuperPac, Winning Our Future, and election intelligence company, OPSEC Group.  Gregg is currently working with Catherine Engelbrecht from True the Vote in their historic investigation of Democrat ballot trafficking in the 2020 election.  Catherine and Gregg told The Gateway Pundit that they discovered that 7% of mail-in ballots were trafficked during the 2020 election.  The investigators told us their evidence will be released following the movie launch next month.

Wisconsin Voters Sue Democrat Cities Over Illegal Drop Boxes In 2020 Election.  Wisconsin voters took legal action against their state's five largest cities on Wednesday over the illegal use of unmanned drop boxes during the 2020 election.  Filed by the Thomas More Society on behalf of voters against Green Bay, Kenosha, Madison, Milwaukee, and Racine, the legal complaints allege that city officials ignored state law by implementing unmanned drop boxes over the course of the 2020 cycle.  "In 2020, the cities of Milwaukee, Madison, Racine, Kenosha, and Green Bay made an agreement with the nonprofit Center for Tech and Civic Life [CTCL] to use the drop boxes to get these cities' residents to vote," said Thomas More Society Special Counsel Erick Kaardal in a press release.  "This so-called 'Wisconsin Safe Voting Plan,' involved $8.8 million of private grants to these five cities, to target specific populations to vote.  It had little, if anything at all to do with keeping voters safe from Covid-19, as it purported to do."  During the 2020 election, CTCL received $400 million from Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg to finance "the infiltration of election offices at the city and county level by left-wing activists" and use them "as a platform to implement preferred administrative practices, voting methods, and data-sharing agreements, as well as to launch intensive outreach campaigns in areas heavy with Democratic voters," in the words of William Doyle in The Federalist.

It's Obama's fault.  [Scroll down]  Doubts remain as to the authenticity of the election that put Biden and Harris in charge of the federal government.  But rather than directly defend the mechanics of the balloting process or justify the slanted news coverage that suppressed anti-Biden information, Biden's defenders continue with a strenuous effort to impose official censorship of those who publicly challenge Biden's legitimacy.  What cannot be censored is that, in the same election that put Biden and Harris in office, the Republicans picked up fourteen seats in the House of Representatives.  Go figure.

Wireless Services CEO Destroys Ignorant Attacks by Fake Fact-Checkers on "2000 Mules".  With the release of 2,000 Mules, patriots around the country are seeing the truth about the obvious voter fraud that was caught on video at designated ballot boxes.  The Mules are those who were dropping fraudulent ballots into drop boxes.  We know about the ones that were recorded and who were sloppy enough to keep their phones with them as they committed systemic voter fraud.  There is much more voter fraud evidence from the 2020 election emerging.  Patriot Joe Brandis, who has been investigating Michigan voter fraud since the 2020 election with Michigan Citizens for Election Integrity and his team continues to discover more and more footage of ballot traffickers dumping multiple ballots into the Detroit drop boxes in the runup of the 2020 election.

102 Counties in Georgia Can't Produce Drop Box Videos!  No Surveillance for Over 181,000 Ballots!.  In a press release, VoterGA announced that their drop box survey team determined that a massive 102 counties in Georgia are unable to produce drop box surveillance videos for November of 2020's General Election.  72 of these counties have admitted to VoterGA that the surveillance footage meant to monitor for ballot trafficking has been destroyed.  Video monitoring is missing for 181,507 cast ballots.

Democrats are breaking America.  AP amused me with its tale, "After 3 months of war, life in Russia has profoundly changed." [...] With Biden's ignorant economic sanctions, he has brought down two economies.  I could not care less about Russia, but the United States is in deep trouble.  Destroying America is the goal.  I call it the Venezuelation of America.  The combination of runaway inflation and shortages is astonishing and unprecedented here, but common throughout the communist world.  Along with a rampant rise in violent crime, Democrats are scorching the Earth to punish Americans for daring to elect Donald John Trump as president.  Democrats desperately are speeding up their fundamental transformation of America into a Union of Soviet States of America.  The use of mail-in voting to accommodate illegal ballot harvesting installed Biden in the White House.  Democrats know they have very little time to make the changes they desire.

Pennsylvania court upholds counties' right to inspect electronic voting equipment.  The Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania on Tuesday upheld the right of Pennsylvania counties to inspect electronic voting equipment, an authority granted to them by the state Legislature.  The court sided with a brief filed by conservative election integrity watchdog The Amistad Project on behalf of Fulton County, Pa.  The county had conducted an inspection on two Dominion voting machines in an attempt to determine whether they had functioned correctly during the 2020 election.  The state's top election official, the secretary of the commonwealth, then retroactively banned the practice and decertified both of the machines without providing the county with state funding to replace them.

2000 Mules:  Fact Or Fiction?  The movie 2000 Mules, a documentary by filmmaker and author Dinesh D'Souza has become the "most successful political documentary in a decade," according to its distributor, Salem Media Group.  D'Souza is getting mixed reviews from conservatives as well as the mainstream left with his latest cinematic effort.  It is unlikely he anticipated a backlash of sorts from his own side of the political aisle, which begs the question:  Why is the movie generating such a wide range of reactions?

Hedge Fund CEO and GOP Candidate David McCormick Files Lawsuit in PA GOP Senate Primary Race — Demands Undated Ballots that Arrived Late Be Counted in Race.  Who is former hedge fund CEO David McCormick?  A recent fundraiser sponsor in New York for David McCormick was the founder of a consulting firm representing the controversial Dominion Voting Systems.  McCormick also made big bucks lobbying for Communist China.  McCormick moved back to Pennsylvania to run in the GOP Senate race after Sean Parnell dropped from the race.

Michigan Bureau of Elections says top GOP gubernatorial candidates [are] ineligible for [the state] ballot.  Two of the most prominent Republicans running for governor in Michigan are ineligible after failing to submit enough valid signatures to make it on the ballot.  Republicans seem to have lost two of their most serious contenders for the gubernatorial election in Michigan.  Chief James Craig of the Detroit Police Department and businessman Perry Johnson — two of the most prominent Republicans running against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer — both failed to produce the valid signatures necessary to get on the ballot.  Gubernatorial candidates are required to submit 15,000 valid signatures to appear on the state ballot.  According to the bureau, the affected candidates were victimized via a series of petitioners who obtained nothing but invalid or otherwise unusable signatures, putting them well below the mark.

Democrats' Georgia Lies Are Being Laid Bare.  The state of Georgia has been in the hot mess political spotlight since its gubernatorial election in 2018 when the thoroughly execrable Stacey Abrams lost to Brian Kemp.  Abrams was then released into the national political conversation, like poison into a city's water supply.  Abrams is a toxic person who can't open her mouth without lying.  She lies about the 2018 election she lost.  She lies about Georgia's efforts to address the glaring irregularities that plagued the state in the 2020 presidential election.  She's now added a new wrinkle to her foul shtick: dumping all over Georgia even though she is once again trying to become its governor.

Democrat Official Indicted For 82 Vote-Fraud Felonies.  A new report from WND has revealed that a Democrat county supervisor in the state of Virginia is facing accusations of dozens of counts of voter fraud, having shown up at the homes of voters, with absentee ballot applications and ballots, in order to ensure that he would have their vote.  Again, the radical left in this country is willing to stoop to any low in order to get the outcome they desire, even if it means destroying the fabric of our nation by obliterating one of its chief cornerstones: a free and fair election.  "It is broadcaster WJHL that reported Knox District Supervisor for Buchanan County Trey Adkins is facing 82 felony charges handed down by a grand jury," the report said.

As Georgia ballot harvesting probe starts, some election evidence has vanished already.  Since 1960, federal civil rights law has required state and local election officials to "retain and preserve" records relating to elections involving federal officeholders for 22 months after ballots are cast.  That would seem to be a good thing as Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger embarks on an investigation into whether third-party liberal activists in 2020 illegally gathered and delivered absentee ballots for voters — a practice known as harvesting that is outlawed in the Peach State.  But some of Georgia's largest counties tell Just the News that they no longer possess evidence that could be helpful to probing the harvesting allegations:  video camera surveillance footage that monitored the drop boxes installed around Georgia to help voters cast ballots during the pandemic.  Election officials in several counties say the reason they discarded the footage is that the emergency rules issued by the State Elections Board said they only needed to keep the footage for 30 days after the election.

Georgia's Record-Breaking Early Voting Turnout Defies 'Voter Suppression' Accusations.  Early voting in Georgia broke records this week despite last year's adoption of election integrity measures that critics derided as "voter suppression" and President Joe Biden called a "blatant attack" on the Constitution and compared to a Jim Crow-era relic.  More than 710,000 people had voted early in Georgia's primary election as of May 19, according to the secretary of state's office, which is 149 percent higher than at the same point in 2020, when elections officials encouraged vote-by-mail and early voting to reduce crowding at polling stations amid the COVID-19 pandemic.  "The record early voting turnout is a testament to the security of the voting system and the hard work of our county election officials," Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said in a statement.

A PDF File Is Not Paper, So PDF Ballots Cannot Be Verified.  For overseas voters or voters with disabilities, many states provide "Remote Accessible Vote By Mail," or RAVBM, a system that allows voters the ability to download and print an absentee ballot, fill it out by hand on paper, and physically mail it back.  Some states use commercial products, while others have developed their own solutions.  In general, this form of RAVBM can be made adequately secure, mainly because the voters make their own marks on the paper.  In some forms of RAVBM, the voter can fill out the ballot using an app on their computer before printing and mailing it.  This is less secure: if malware on the voter's computer has "hacked" the voting app, what's printed out may differ from what the voter indicated on the screen, and voters are not very good at reviewing the printouts and noticing such changes.  The most dangerous form of RAVBM is one that allows electronic ballot return, in which the voter uploads or emails a PDF file.

Law Enforcement Raids Nonprofits In '2000 Mules' Ballot Trafficking Investigation.  Law enforcement has conducted a raid on Yuma County nonprofit organizations connected to the ballot trafficking scheme discovered by Yuma County citizens and revealed in the "2000 Mules" documentary.  True The Vote and Dinesh D'Souza's groundbreaking new film revealed that the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen through illegal ballot trafficking and featured the undercover investigative work of David Lara and Arizona State Senate candidate Gary Snyder.  David Lara tells us, "San Luis is Ground Zero for election fraud in Arizona."  As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, The Yuma County Sheriff and Yuma County Recorder opened a new investigation into cases of impersonation fraud, false registrations, duplicate voting, and fraudulent use of absentee ballots.

Same Woman Makes Four Trips to Detroit Drop Box In TWO Days; Deposits Stacks Of Ballots.  The following exclusive drop box footage from the Balduck satellite voting center in Detroit, MI, was obtained by the Gateway Pundit and 100 Percent Fed Up:  On October 28, 2020, at 4:35, a female driving a blue Toyota with a red air freshener hanging from her rear-view mirror drove up to an absentee ballot drop box at the Balduck satellite voting center in Detroit, MI.  A female passenger emerges from her vehicle with a large stack of what appears to be absentee ballots.  The female passenger struggles to deposit multiple ballots at one time into the drop box slot and can actually be seen tearing one of the envelopes as she attempts to jam too many ballots into the slot at once.  The slots in the drop boxes are supposed to be designed to accept one ballot at a time.  The female passenger eventually completes her deposit of the large stack of ballots, and they pull away.

Election Fraud in 2022?  Next week is the start of the 2022 election season in Georgia with the party primary elections.  All the party leaders involved in the controversy over allegations of election fraud in November 2020 are up for reelection.  The other hot issue for Georgia's voters is whether the 2021 election reform law will produce credible election results in 2022 and 2024, results that reflect the will of a majority of lawful voters.  The odds are not good that the reform will work.  The movie 2000 Mules provides [ample] evidence of an organized plot to stuff election drop boxes in the 2020 election with "harvested" ballots — often in the dead of night.  It's all there on your computer screen when you stream the video.  Does the 2021 law address this sort of widespread fraud?

Ballot fiasco delays results in Oregon, vote-by-mail pioneer.  The fiasco affects up to 60,000 ballots, or two-thirds of the roughly 90,000 returned so far in Oregon's third-largest county.  Hundreds of ballots were still coming in under a new law that allows them to be counted as long as they are postmarked by Election Day, and 200 Clackamas County employees were getting a crash course Thursday in vote-counting after being redeployed to address the crisis.  Elections workers must pull the faulty ballots from batches of 125, transfer the voter's intent to a fresh ballot, then double-check their entries — a painstaking process that could draw the election out until June 13, when Oregon certifies its vote.

The Editor says...
Any time a bunch of county workers "transfer the voter's intent to a fresh ballot," there is a great potential for the workers to transfer their own intent instead.  Who is supervising this "transfer?"

Report: Pennsylvania Polling Stations Forced to Turn Voters Away Due to Ballot Shortage.  Multiple polling stations in Pennsylvania had to turn voters away on this primary election day after reportedly suffering a shortage of ballots.  The ballot shortage impacted multiple polling stations in Pennsylvania's Allegheny County, including at polling stations in Stowe Township and Hanover Heights.  According to Stowe Township's Council President Robin Parilla, Alleghany County has not responded to her request for more ballots.  As a result, Parilla has had to turn voters away.

Will 2022 Vote Be Fair?  Nearly A Third Of Americans Say No.  ill America's elections in November be fair and free of fraud?  Unfortunately, nearly a third of all Americans believe the answer is "no," the latest monthly I&I/TIPP Poll found, suggesting that the November mid-term congressional elections could be among the most closely scrutinized in recent history.  The May poll asked 1,320 Americans, "Generally speaking, how confident are you that votes will be cast and counted accurately in the November elections?"  Among those responding, 61% said they were either "very confident" (36%) or "somewhat confident" (25%).  On the other hand, 31% said they were "not confident, with 20% saying they were "not very confident" and 11% saying they were "not at all confident."

The Editor says...
There will never be another fraud-free election in the U.S. using the current system.

It's Déjà Vu All Over Again:  Is the Uniparty Stealing PA GOP Primary from Dr. Oz?  [Scroll down]  Whether you like Dr. Oz, or Kathy Barnette, or David McCormick is not the issue.  The issue is Pennsylvania cannot run a trustworthy election.  You cannot trust what is going on behind the closed doors in Pennsylvania.  This should concern every Republican and every honest American.  We either have a republic or we don't have one.

Dinesh D'Souza says 'Our Film Proves Joe Biden is Not the President'.  Dinesh D'Souza of 2000mules.com joined "The Alex Jones Show" Tuesday [5/17/2022] to break down the evidence presented in his new documentary film proving Joe Biden's election was illegitimate.  In this explosive interview, D'Souza said, "Joe Biden is a usurper to the degree that it's illegal fraud organized by the left and by the Democrats to put him in office."  [Video clip]

VoterGA Exposes Local TV Station that Posted Premature Primary Results Before the Upcoming Election.  VoterGA released a statement today about a local Georgia TV station that came out with artificial Georgia primary election results for all statewide and US Congressional races in the Georgia primaries.  The election hasn't even taken place yet.  According to VoterGA a local TV station shared primary results that they put together related to the upcoming primaries.  These artificial results showed a far-left basis.  VoterGA found out that the results were produced for the local channel WSB-TV by the Associated Press.

2000 Mules Just "Tip of the Voter Fraud Iceberg" — Michigan Investigators Reveal Mountain of New Evidence of 2020 Election Fraud.  With the release of 2,000 Mules, patriots around the country are seeing the truth about the obvious voter fraud that was caught on video at designated ballot boxes.  The Mules are those who were dropping fraudulent ballots into drop boxes.  We know about the ones that were recorded and who were sloppy enough to keep their phones with them as they committed systemic voter fraud.  What is overlooked by many, though, is that there is much more voter fraud evidence from the 2020 election emerging.  Patriot Joe Brandis, who has been investigating Michigan voter fraud since the 2020 election with Michigan Citizens for Election Integrity says, "this is just the tip of the iceberg of voter fraud evidence that is emerging every week, and what's about to come."

Oregon To Allow Ballots 7 Days After Elections With New Postage Date Law.  Infamous for being one of the early adopters of vote-by-mail, Oregon always looks for ways to expand the methods that unscrupulous individuals can take advantage of the system.  The latest example being a new law that allows ballots to be counted long after election night as long as the envelope was post marked for election day.  That could even mean it was put in a postage box after 8:00 PM on election night.  That could mean piles of extra ballots found sitting in a bin in some post office that employees "forgot about" until seven days after an election.  In the event of a close race separated by only a few votes, that could mean the public would have to wait weeks for that election to be certified.

74 Harvesting and Mule Rings:  Where They Were, How They Did It, And The Impact - Our Work is Now Corroborated.  The best way to understand the dysfunctional 2020 election is to see that California's election processes, shortcuts, tricks, tactics, techniques, and procedures were exported to the entire nation, against the laws of most states.  One of the major election tricks championed by California's renegade government is the practice of ballot harvesting.  Ballot harvesting is the collection and return of ballots by someone other than the voter and can be innocently applied to one spouse dropping off a ballot for another.  Ballot harvesting is abused when it is used to seek out illegally mailed ballots in places such as nursing homes, apartments, and dormitories.  2000 Mules documented the trafficking of mail ballots to drop boxes, typically in the dark of night by those commissioned to deliver hundreds, if not thousands, of ballots each over weeks of the period allotted for returning mail ballots.  The system was sophisticated and clearly engineered to overcome what was expected to be monstrous turnout for Donald Trump.  Every trend, indicator, bellwether, and predictor, some valid for more than a century, showed a Trump victory was inevitable.  Ballots were picked up at pre-designated headquarters and sent by "mules" throughout the surrounding counties.

How Zuckerberg Used a Tax-Exempt Foundation to Help Biden Fix the 2020 Election.  A rarely mentioned fact about the 2020 election is that Biden eked out a victory by perhaps the narrowest margin in history — .027% of the 159 million votes cast.  This was a margin easily created by a strategic influx of campaign cash coupled with orders to spend the money on massive numbers of paper ballots, which could be harvested from "drop boxes," which, as Dinesh D'Souza's documentary 2000 Mules shows, were repeatedly stuffed by Democrat operatives in the middle of the night.  All these millions of Zuckerberg dollars, underwritten by American taxpayers, drew no attention from I.R.S. Commissioner Charles Rettig or the I.R.S. investigating teams whose responsibility it was to see that taxpayer supported operations like the Zuckerberg "charities" were not intervening in American election campaigns with the idea of shaping their outcomes.  In 2020, the Zuckerbergs donated $69.5 million to the tax-exempt Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), whose founder was formerly a director of the leftwing People For the American Way, and $350 million to the "Safe Elections" Project of the tax-exempt Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL).

Flashback to the 2000 election:
The Leftwing Insurrection.  I was just a child, but I do recall the hoopla over the 2000 election.  Memory is short, but liberal writers and activists militantly wrote opinion pieces decrying the "stolen" election.  Jonathan Chait, 12 years later, in New York Magazine, wrote that the 2000 election was stolen.  Even more recently, Terry McAuliffe, the ungracious loser of the 2021 Virginia gubernatorial election, spewed that the 2000 election was stolen.  Twenty years after the election, many liberals cannot — will not — accept the 2000 election.  Their language of a stolen election implies what?  Insurrection and illegitimacy.  Though George W. Bush won his 2004 reelection with a majority of the popular vote, expanding and building upon his support for the War on Terror and the toppling of Saddam Hussein at the time, Christopher Hitchens of Vanity Fair wrote of election irregularities in my native state of Ohio — a full two years after the fact.

Wisconsin 2020 election investigation screeches to halt.  Former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman's inquiry into the 2020 presidential election has reportedly been halted amid several lawsuits over his investigation.  While his investigation into the election is paused, Gableman's $11,000 monthly salary will be halved to $5,500, and he will receive a $2,500 monthly stipend to pay for rent, General Assembly Speaker Robin Vos announced Wednesday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.  "Until we win those lawsuits, you know, we are pausing the investigation because it's not like we're going to keep looking into things we've already discovered," Vos, a Republican, said.

Democrat official indicted on 82 counts of voter fraud.  A county supervisor in Virginia has been accused of dozens of counts of voter fraud in a case in which prosecutors allege he showed up at the homes of voters, with absentee ballot applications and ballots, to ensure he would have their vote.  According to WJHL a grand jury indicted Knox District Supervisor for Buchanan County Trey Adkins on 82 felony charges.  Those charges include 34 counts of false statement — election fraud, 11 counts of absentee voting procedure violations, 11 counts of forgery of a public record, 3 counts of conspiracy to make a false statement — election fraud, and more.

The Mules Absolutely Won It For The Donkeys.  I just saw one of the most amazing documentaries I've ever laid my eyes on.  As much of America as possible absolutely MUST see Dinesh D'Souza's film: "2000 Mules".  It certainly appears to me to be the bottom-line truth as to whether America's 2020 election was fixed.  See this movie and you will, without equivocation, know that it was.  The painstaking research and documentation it took to compile this masterpiece are not here easily described.  So I'm not going to bother.  Suffice it to say that you must see this film.  America must see this film to help set itself right-side-up again.  For that very reason you probably aren't going to easily see this video on most extant social network formats.

Voting Machines Across The Country Found With Shady Program That Can Change Elections.  Earlier this year we reported about an appeal made to a federal judge to release a report that suggests there may be some flaws in the equipment used by Dominion Voting Systems in Georgia, despite its secrecy.  "The public deserves to know the context of J. Alex Halderman's claims and his testimony regarding the 2020 election," Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said when he called for the document to be released, according to the Washington Examiner.  "Georgia voters face an extreme risk that [ballot marking device]-based attacks could manipulate their individual votes and alter election outcomes," said Halderman, a computer science professor at the University of Michigan, in a report last year, according to the Daily Beast.

Florida's secretary of state to resign ahead of upcoming elections.  Florida's secretary of state is resigning, seven months before the November elections.  Laurel Lee submitted her resignation to Gov. Ron DeSantis Thursday, according to the governor's spokesperson.  The resignation is effective Monday, May 16.

Voting Machines Were Able to Create and Fill Out Own Ballots?  Things are heating up as the New Mexico election investigation is hitting full steam.  New discoveries are being made daily regarding the circumstances that lead to what happened during the 2020 election.  This isn't purely to litigate the 2020 election.  Voting integrity regulators are looking to ensure the same things aren't able to happen in November.  According to a new report from The Gateway Pundit, they claim a documented feature within Dominion voting machines has caught the attention of investigators.

Voting Systems Used Across the Country Have Functionality to Create Ballots and Fill Them Out.  This week auditors in New Mexico uncovered a number of material issues in their work to date.  One item that we learned is that the voting system is able to fill out ballots.  Combined with what we knew some time ago, this is devastating.  This past week auditors in New Mexico identified that the voting systems used in the counties under review have the ability to fill in ballots.  This was noted in the presentation before officials in Otero County, New Mexico.  We then learned earlier today that a prior New York state investigation identified malicious code that could do this.

Alaska's Special Election Is A Template For How The Left Wants To Rig The Vote.  Next month, Alaskans will vote in a special primary election for the state's single congressional seat, left vacant by the death of Republican Rep. Don Young in March.  Young, the longest-serving Republican in the history of the U.S. House, was Alaska's sole congressman for 49 years, so the election to replace him is in some ways an historic event for the state.  But it's also historic in another way:  it will be Alaska's first ever statewide mail-in primary election.  That is, there will be no in-person voting at all.  Every single voter on the state's bloated and error-riddled voter rolls was automatically mailed a blank ballot.  What's more, there will be no verification requirements for these mail-in ballots.  Voters will simply need to fill out their ballot and have a witness observe them sign the envelope.  The state's Division of Election has explicitly said it will not verify the authenticity of the signatures on the ballots.

Federal Judge Eviscerates Russia Collusion Hoaxer Marc Elias For Aiming To Undermine New York Elections.  Another federal judge slapped down top Democrat operative and prime Russia collusion hoaxer Marc Elias this week for attempting to undermine free and fair elections, this time in New York.  "This is a Hail Mary pass, the object of which is to take a long shot try at having the New York primaries conducted on district lines that the state says are unconstitutional," U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan wrote.  In a 17-page complaint, Elias, who is infamous for using deception, lies, and money to meddle with U.S. elections and push Democrats to the top, used his law firm to ask the district court to reconsider the Democrat-drawn House maps which would likely grant the leftist party three extra seats in the 2022 midterms.

Auditor Who Dismissed 2020 Fraud Failed to Declare Thousands of Dollars from Zuckerberg Election Interference Fund.  An election official from a county which received funds from the Mark Zuckerberg's Center for Tech and Civic Life used a local newspaper column to dismiss evidence of election fraud, praising mail-in ballots in the process, and helping dismiss notions of foul play despite his obvious conflict of interest.  Paddy McGuire, who penned his article for the Shelton-Mason County Journal in 2020, also falsely claimed mail-in voting ensures unparalleled "safety and security," while also defending the county's decision to ban in-person election observers.  McGuire, the Auditor for Washington's Mason County, authored over one dozen articles for the County Journal during the lead-up to the 2020 election, but never disclosed that his county received a cash grant from the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL).

The Bogus Placeholder Birthdate Excuse in the 2020 Election.  There was no end of ridicule from Democrats and mainstream media regarding the issue of republican hysteria over "dead people voting" in the 2020 election.  Viral videos were allegedly spreading disinformation and the notion that 120 [year pld] people were "voting" courtesy of the fraudulent schemes cooked up by the Democrats.  1/1/1900 became a date in history to remember as the "temporary placeholder" for absentee ballots arriving just before election day.  As Detroit's Director of Elections, George Azzouz explained to CNN, "The placeholder information has to be inserted in order for the electronic poll book (EPB) to accept the entry."  Senior Election Advisor, Chris Thomas, said later in sworn testimony that "this use of a "placeholder" birthdate is standard, acceptable procedure."  Is this truly a "standard, acceptable" procedure?

Fact Checking the Fact Checkers:  Debunking AP's '2000 Mules' Hit Piece.  Many of us were alarmed on Election Night 2020 when, while the results were looking good for Donald Trump, multiple states suddenly stopped counting votes.  As the night wore on and went into the next day, it seemed that every update was favorable for Biden until he was ultimately named President-Elect.  While Trump's campaign repeatedly promised to "release the Kraken" and bring forward evidence of election fraud that would prove that the election was stolen, focusing on electronic voting machines, that evidence didn't materialize.  RedState's Scott Hounsell pointed out various states and cities — even down to the precincts — that should be investigated, and that information was given to the Trump campaign to no avail.

Why aren't we allowed to question the 2020 election?  Do you find it strange that we do not dare challenge the prevailing narrative of the 'democratic' party of projection and the nation's socialist media?  Especially since questioning electoral integrity is a cottage industry for themselves whenever they lose. [...] Within days of the chaos of mail-in voting, ballot harvesting, and dropbox stuffing, we were told it was in fact the "most secure in history."  One of the 'debunking' stories had a great quote that 'extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.'  If the 2020 election was the "most secure in history," then that extraordinary claim needs some extraordinary proof. [...] We are also supposed to forget all the glaring statistical oddities of the 2020 election.  That the man who campaigned from his basement, or to tiny crowds in the middle of nowhere, earned 80+ million votes.  Even worse, was that his ability to acquire raw vote totals didn't translate to down-ballot races.  Does anyone feel like we're being set up for the same kind of fairytale story this time around?

2000 Mules election documentary grosses more than $1 million in 12 hours.  The film 2000 Mules, which documents claims of fraud during the 2020 elections, grossed more than $1 million in its first 12 hours of streaming. 2000 Mules, created by conservative political commentator Dinesh D'Souza, began streaming Saturday at noon on Rumble and subscription-based platform Locals.

Ranked Choice Voting is a Scam.  In the event you have the occasion to view anything promoting Ranked Choice Voting (RCV), also known as Instant Runoff Voting (IVR) in elections, you will see little in the way of good documentation and real history.  You will be bombarded with cartoons, platitudes, assumptions and flowery language.  Ours is an attempt to cut through the fog and haze of a perceived virtuous and Utopian process that is anything but this "wonderful, inclusive, diverse, better than fair, more democratic" scheme to manipulate your true vote and first choice preference.  It is a scam, a scheme being perpetrated especially on those who thought their votes would count.  RCV solves no problem but rather creates them.

CA Woman Finds US Postal Bin Filled With Over 100 Mail-in-Ballots For Upcoming Election While Walking Her Dog.  As primary elections for California's radical governor and AG heat up, non-Democrat residents of a state run by far-left radicals need to be vigilant to ensure their elections don't end up looking like November 2020.  On Saturday, Christina Repaci was walking her dog in East Hollywood, CA, when she found a US Postal bin filled with over 100 mail-in ballots for the upcoming election.  An alarmed Repaci contacted "several politicians" but claimed they ignored her.  The East Hollywood resident reached out to the local Sherriff's department, where she was told it wasn't their problem and was told to contact the USPS.

If you see something, say something!  And then you'll be treated like a suspect, or just ignored.

If We Cannot Secure Voting, We Will Perish.  Dinesh D'Souza's film, 2000 Mules, was just released, and it is jaw-dropping.  The level of questionable practices and outright cheating is staggering.  To oversimplify:  Using high-tech forensic geolocation, cell phone information was collected that proved that ballot drop-offs at multiple boxes miles apart by the same "mule" were in progress.  A mule is a paid or unpaid person who (in this case) drops illegal ballots off at these drop boxes.  D'Souza's team set the bar to determine fraud deliberately high so that results of this investigation could not easily be questioned or passed off as mere coincidence.  Stringent criteria were set up so that video evidence of highly suspicious drop box activity would be easily verified by unbiased parties.  D'Souza was inordinately careful so that his film would not be dismissed or ridiculed by rational people.  The purpose was not necessarily to claim that Trump won and Biden lost.  The purpose was to demonstrate how easy it is to cheat and that cheating did indeed take place in the 2020 election.

The Latest Georgia Voting Rights Controversy Is Erupting — Asking for a Signature Is Now Racist.  Have we finally reached peak outrage in the latest fight over Georgia election laws?  Lost in all the current furor, between Florida banning gay students, Elon Musk setting the Constitution on fire by employing the First Amendment, and the country being cast into the dark ages over the right to kill infants, there is more attempted outrage simmering in the state of Georgia.  More voting controversies are being claimed, and the rationale offered is only getting dumber.

Tech Giants Are Censoring, Blacklisting and Banning Posts on the "2000 Mules" Ballot Trafficking Documentary.  The virtual premiere for the movie '2000 Mules' was held last night live from Las Vegas.  In the film, Dinesh D'Souza and True the Vote provide answers and evidence of the stolen 2020 Election.  The explosive documentary was released on Tuesday at select theaters across the nation.  The movie "2000 Mules" proves through geo-tracking and video confirmation that Democrats used ballot trafficking to steal the 2020 election from President Donald Trump.  The national conspiracy involved every battleground state.  THOUSANDS of Americans participated in the virtual premiere last night.

True the Vote Announces They Are Releasing Addresses of ALL Ballot Trafficking Stash Houses.  The virtual premiere for the movie '2000 Mules' was held last night live from Las Vegas.  In the film, Dinesh D'Souza and True the Vote provide answers and evidence on the stolen 2020 Election.  The explosive documentary was released on Tuesday at select theaters across the nation.  According to the evidence discussed in the movie, if you factor in just the mule ballot traffickers, Trump won with 305 electoral votes.  That does not even count all the other fraud that occurred during the election like the mysterious ballot drops at 3:00 am in the morning or the questionable machines.  In April, Turning Point USA (TPUSA) founder Charlie Kirk went on with Joe Hoft at 93.3 FM to discuss the movie.  Kirk, who is featured in the film, said this about the evidence collected for the film, "They saw that some of these mules would visit these drop boxes every night.  And then go to Stacey Abrams' headquarters and then go back to the drop boxes."

Dinesh D'Souza Speaks:  "In This Movie, We Show That There Are At Least 400,000 Fraudalent Votes".  Patriots in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, are gearing up for another jam-packed Save America rally following the release of Dinesh D'Souza and True The Vote's bombshell documentary exposing the "2000 Mules" that were employed to steal the 2020 Presidential Election from President Trump. [...] Tens of thousands are willing to stand in the cold rain for President Trump, the most popular President in American history.

Court Reinstates Florida's Election Integrity Laws.  Florida just got a massive win for election integrity.  A federal appeals court just reversed a lower court's decision to overturn Florida's newest election integrity laws.  The laws established Election Crimes and Security and worked to strengthen voting rules in the state.  This includes signature verification on mail-in ballots. [...] The court also dealt a massive blow to the lower court's claim that the law was attempting to suppress the black vote.

Ron DeSantis and the Constitution Score a Big Win Over the Activist Left and Rule by Random Judge.  Friday [5/6/2022], the US Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals handed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis a huge victory in the struggle to return sanity and the rule of law to Florida's elections.  To set the stage, in May 2021, the Florida legislature, as is its right under the US Constitution, passed a sweeping overhaul of Florida's election laws.  The purpose of the new law was to stamp out abuses that had grown up over time and quash new types of abuses invented during the 2020 let's-crap-our-drawers response to the Wuhan virus.  The Democrats and their allies, which find it extremely hard to win elections without resorting to fraud, cheating, and abuse of the legal process, filed suit to stop the law from going into effect.  Chief U.S. District Judge Mark Walker heard the case of the Northern District of Florida.  Walker is an Obama judge.  The significance of that soon became apparent as immediately played the "racism card."

Police Seize Voting Machine During Investigation Into 2020 Election Breaches.  Michigan State Police seized a voting machine tabulator April 29 and plan to expand its investigation into breaches of voting machine data related to the 2020 presidential election.  The agency opened an investigation into voting machine breaches in February after learning that an unnamed third party was granted access to the vote tabulator components and underlying technology in one Michigan county, according to CNN.  Michigan State Police Lt. Derrick Carroll told the outlet that his department is expanding the investigation into more counties after they were notified of additional breaches.  Carroll reportedly told the outlet that the breaches did not affect the results of the 2020 election as they allegedly occurred after the election was over.

Forged absentee ballots discovered in Harris County, Texas, from 2020 election, all for Democrats.  In 2005, former President Jimmy Carter, a Democrat, and former Secretary of State James Baker, a Republican, put out a report on how to improve election integrity that made one key point:  The country should never adopt mass mail-in balloting because it is ripe for fraud.

Election integrity org set to release evidence of "organized crime" effort to steal 2020 election.  A noted ballot integrity organization is preparing to release a wealth of documented video evidence showing that there was an "organized crime" effort to steal the 2020 election for Joe Biden because the hatred for President Trump's "American First" policies enraged the countercultural deep state.  Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote and fellow researcher Gregg Phillips have been involved in uncovering vote fraud and fighting for better election integrity for more than a decade, and the day after the highly contentious and suspicious November 2020 election, they made an agreement. [...] In February, the organization produced a small sample of what they say is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of evidence:  Video of what appears to be a man engaged in 'ballot box stuffing.'  The video clearly shows a man producing several ballots, fanning them out in his hand and then taking a photo of them before placing them in a ballot drop box.

Ballot Harvester Shaye Moss Receives John F. Kennedy Profile In Courage Award.  Georgia election operative Wandrea "Shaye" Moss was recently awarded the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award for "protecting democracy."  As The Gateway Pundit reported, Moss was seen in surveillance footage pulling suitcases full of ballots out from under tables to be tabulated.  Moss' mother, Ruby Freeman, was also caught on video shoving stacks of ballots through the voting machines numerous times late at night after all of the election observers were sent home.  The John F. Kennedy Library Foundation issued a statement on April 21 praising Moss for continuing to work as an election processor despite backlash from being caught on camera ballot harvesting during the 2020 presidential race.

The consequences of the stolen 2020 election are increasingly catastrophic.  Last year Mollie Hemingway wrote a book about the 2020 election.  Its title was Rigged, How the Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized our Elections.  It is a comprehensive story of the numerous ways the left orchestrated the Biden win.  A few weeks ago, David Bossie released his film, also titled Rigged.  It exposed the scheme perpetrated by Mark Zuckerberg; "Zuckerbucks" had spent over $400 m[illion] to fraudulently rnsure a Biden victory.  This week brings the release of Dinesh D'Souza's film, 2000 Mules.  This film exposes and explains how paid "mules" in numerous states stuffed those drop boxes that Zuckerberg paid for with many thousands of ballots faked or harvested.  Using geo-tracking of cell phones, Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote and Gregg Harris uncovered two thousand people who were paid via a variety of leftist non-profits to stuff those drop boxes, over and over again.  The film is a shocking expose and reveals yet another very complex and devious way certain leftist non-profits cheated to win.

Election Integrity Dead:  Killed in Court.  In the wake of the 2020 election, states across the country enacted laws to try to prevent a repeat of the chaos from that election.  In some states such as Arizona, Texas, and Florida, laws were passed to prohibit the private funding of election offices.  In others, ballot custody vulnerabilities were addressed, such as limits on harvesting and drop-boxes.  Predictably, an enormous litigation apparatus attacked nearly every post-2020 election reform in federal or state court.  Too often, they were successful.  Arizona, for example, enacted legislation to ensure that only citizens are registering and voting.  No sooner had the ink dried on Governor Doug Ducey's signature, than the state was hit with a federal lawsuit by Mi Familia Vota, an organization dedicated to "build[ing] Latino political power by expanding the electorate...." This promises to be another example of trench warfare-style litigation ultimately decided well into the future.

Why the Democrats Can Expect to Lose a Lot of Elections.  Twenty twenty was a bitter defeat for many of us, and the charges of fraud were not without merit.  What wasn't true however were the tales of rigged voting machines swinging the election.  As I wrote not long afterward, the truth emerged, and it was just the same illegal ballot-harvesting operation the leftist activists always run, but this time with hundreds of millions in Silicon Valley dollars and the connivance of some election officials.  The new documentary out this week brilliantly documents how all this happened:  D'Souza's 2000 Mules.  For all the illegality, though, I think 2020 is going to be seen as a Pyrrhic victory, with so many of the Democrats' bad ideas catching up with them and as the black and Hispanic base sours on Biden and his party.  A wipe-out in 2022 will surprise no one.

The Editor says...
As far as I am aware, nobody has disproven the widespread notion of "rigged voting machines."  A year ago, plentiful news and opinion articles about internet-connected voting machines and statistics showing that there was something fishy going on in the vote counts, with fractional votes and so on, but those opinions are quiet now.  That doesn't mean the idea was disproven.

The Timing Was Intentional:  Roe v Wade Leak Was Left's Answer to "2000 Mules" Documentary Release Today that Proves 2020 Election Was Stolen.  The movie '2000 Mules' is set for its theater release today in over 200 theaters across the country.  In the film, Dinesh D'Souza and True the Vote provide answers and evidence of the stolen 2020 Election in this documentary released on Tuesday at select theaters across the nation. [...] The movie proves through geotracking and video confirmation that Democrats used ballot trafficking to steal the election in a conspiracy that included every 2020 battleground state.  We also know from our investigative reporting that Democrat PACs were involved in every state in the ballot trafficking operations.  This was a planned, organized, and well-coordinated conspiracy in battleground states.  We also know from investigators Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips that roughly 7% of mail-in ballots in each state were trafficked.  Without those stolen votes, Joe Biden would have lost the election.

Catherine Engelbrecht:  Georgia Gov. Kemp and Sec. of State Raffensperger Covered Up Evidence of Voter Fraud.  During an interview over the weekend, Catherine Engelbrecht, the founder and president of True the Vote, claimed Georgia's governor and secretary of state covered up clear evidence of election fraud, and of mounting a smear campaign against her organization.  Engelbrecht told War Room podcaster Steve Bannon on Saturday that she provided solid evidence of ballot trafficking to Governor Brian Kemp and Sec. of State Brad Raffensperger, but rather than act on it, they tried to discredit True the Vote's work.  The vote monitoring organization used both geospatial cell phone data and video surveillance to capture illegal ballot trafficking activity in six states.  True the Vote claims it was able to isolate 2,000 traffic harvesters, or "mules" who visited drop boxes with stacks of ballots late at night, used gloves to conceal their fingerprints, and took photos of themselves at the drop boxes to secure payment.  The ballot harvesters were caught on video making these trips to multiple drop boxes in battleground states.

Kari Lake and Mark Finchem Filed A Lawsuit To Ban Electronic Voting Machines.  Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake and Trump-endorsed candidate for AZ Secretary of State Mark Finchem recently filed a lawsuit against radical leftist Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and the corrupt Maricopa and Pima County Boards of Supervisors to ban the use of Voting Machines in the 2022 Elections.  The historic lawsuit seeks to prohibit the use of the corrupted machines "unless and until the electronic voting system is made open to the public and subjected to scientific analysis by objective experts to determine whether it is secure from manipulation or intrusion." The lawsuit states, "The machine companies have consistently refused to do this."

How to Deal with Political Stress.  The 2020 election was an election unlike anything this country had ever seen.  It was long, toxic, polarizing, and ugly on both sides.  The media couldn't get enough.  Everywhere you turned — TV, social media, Google, magazines, billboards, and even podcasts and radio spots — the election was in your face.  According to data gathered by the American Psychological Association back in October 2020, 68 percent of Americans surveyed said the approaching election was a significant source of stress in their lives.  (By comparison, just 52 percent said the same during the 2016 cycle.)

New Film Alleges 2020 Was Stolen, 2000 Felonies Prove It.  After May 7, 2022 there will exist a dynamic in the nation that has not since America woke up on the morning after the election in 2020.  Simply put, we were right.  By "we" I'm referring to everyone from the harshest critic of the "vote fraud" crowds but who in the back of their mind couldn't have confidence in the oft repeated lie "most secure election in history," to people just like you and me who had the audacity to ask about it and were told to shut up, sit down, or we'd be cancelled.  The premiere of Dinesh D'Souza's brand new film 2000 Mules will this week provide the basis for that validation (as most people still believe it) and also provide the basis for law enforcement to begin arresting people.  "What's the basis for these claims McCullough?"  Again put simply enough for Joe Biden to read correctly on a note card:  Geo-Tracking & 4.3 million minutes from state-owned surveillance footage.  So for the skeptics think about this level of proof, the property of the state the crimes took place in demonstrating hundreds of thousands of felonies.  No explanation needed:  the evidence exists and literally speaks for itself.

Catherine Englebrecht Outlines Devastating Evidence of Corruption by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp.  Catherine Englebrecht appeared on The War Room with Steve Bannon {Direct Rumble Link} to outline the evidence of election fraud that took place in 2020 through the use of ballot harvesting and ballot mules.  The receipts Englebrecht and True The Vote have gathered are the primary evidence in an explosive documentary that is going to be released shortly called "2000 Mules."  The 2020 vote in key county precincts was manipulated by illegal and fraudulent ballot harvesting.  Wayne county, Michigan; Philadelphia county, Pennsylvania; Maricopa county, Arizona; Clark county, Nevada; Dane county, Wisconsin; and Fulton county, Georgia.  True the Vote has the documentary evidence, and video from the drop boxes, outlining how the ballot harvesting took place.  However, corrupt local and state officials have refused to investigate the evidence because the political scandal is extreme in consequence.  Importantly, during the interview with Steve Bannon, Catherine Englebrecht notes the systemic corruption by Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp, and his entire administration, as one concrete example of the willful fraud that cuts across party lines.  [Video clip]

David Lara Explains The "Playbook" of Ballot Traffickers In Arizona After Discovering Ballot Mules In San Luis, AZ.  The Gateway Pundit recently spoke to David Lara, an Arizona citizen who discovered a ballot trafficking "cartel" in his local community of San Luis.  We previously reported that the Arizona Attorney General received this evidence before the 2020 General Election, but he did nothing about it.  RINO Mark Brnovich waited until now to investigate the stolen 2020 Election.  Court documents show that Alma Yadira Juarez, who pleaded guilty to casting ballots given to her by Guillermina Fuentes, was interviewed by prosecutors on August 6th, 2020, two months before the General Election.  Guillermina Fuentes was indicted for obtaining and voting on another person's early ballot and forging signatures on early ballot affidavits.  Alma Yadira Juarez was one of her mules.

New Mexico Finds Errors in Dominion Voting Machine Software Similar to Recent Issues Identified in Tennessee.  Another issue with the software in Dominion voting machines was reported last night in New Mexico.  Earlier this week we reported that there were errors found in the EAC certified Dominion machines in a recent election in Tennessee.  The 'glitch' moved a ballot and all ballots after that ballot to the adjudication process.  From there the ballots could be manipulated since not processed in the normal count process.

YouTube Bans Video Featuring Conservative Expert on Voter Fraud.  YouTube on Tuesday [4/26/2022] removed a video of a podcast discussion of vote fraud and the 2020 election from its platform, but the participants in the discussion insist they did or said nothing wrong.  The video featured an expert from The Daily Signal's parent organization, The Heritage Foundation, and had been on YouTube for more than a year without incident before being taken down.

Is This the Proof That We Have All Been Waiting For?  The claims that the 2020 Presidential election was wrought with fraud and abuse have been sung from every mountain top in the land, and by every conservative politician or public figure of note. [...] There have always been instances of voter fraud in elections, but to date, the cases have been limited to smaller geographic areas or concentrated in a particular election contest.  Never has there been proof of an effort to modify an election result on a national level, until now.  Documentary filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza's latest project, a movie entitled "2000 Mules" dives deep into the 2020 Presidential election and uncovers truly shocking technological proof of widespread voter fraud.  Using a combination of embedded GPS technology, video security camera footage, and interviews with perpetrators of actual vote fraud, Dinesh and his team have assembled the most impressive compilation of evidence yet seen.

Dinesh D'Souza Discusses His Perspective on the 2020 Election After a Full Review of the Illegal Ballot Harvesting.  Dennis Prager asks Dinesh D'Souza if his opinion of the 2020 election changed as a result of his research, organizing and collaborating with True The Vote, and reviewing all of the 2020 ballot harvesting work.  The results of the effort are assembled in the soon-to-be-released documentary, 2000 mules.  D'Souza explains that following the review of the specific precincts in the specific key targeted states, it became obvious the election was manipulated by an organized political effort to use fraudulently obtained ballots to stuff remote ballot collection boxes in those key precincts.  By taking this precinct level ballot harvesting action in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, Nevada and Arizona the 2020 election result was a manipulated to provide Joe Biden a win.

Making Vote by Mail Permanent.  "Zuck bucks" are no more.  After pouring $350 million into largely Democratic districts in the 2020 election, boosting turnout for Joe Biden in strategic counties, the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) has announced it won't be trying to privatize all future American elections.  Instead, it wants to federalize them.  Earlier this month, CTCL revealed its next project:  the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence, an $80 million campaign to boost federal funding for elections, which are administered by the states, while centralizing how they're run.  Make no mistake, this is the professional left at work, and it starts with making vote by mail permanent.  America's elections offices received $800 million in additional funding for the 2020 election, half from Zuckerberg, half from Congress via the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.  Yet shortly after investigations into Zuck bucks began in early 2021, CTCL began demanding Congress allocate a whopping $20 billion in extra federal elections funding, a 2,400 percent increase, to supposedly combat "rising costs for paper ballots" caused by global supply shortages.

Biden's open border:  One of the most successful voter drives in Democrats' history.  To fully understand how Democrats plan to turn America into a single-party state, take a look at two of their seemingly disparate actions shortly after President Biden's inauguration.  In Washington, Democrats immediately pushed legislation to fundamentally take over state-run elections to greatly loosen voter registration rules.  While GOP senators stalled the bill in January, Democrats have vowed to enact the unprecedented federalization, somehow, someday.

Georgia elections chief hints at organized effort behind ballot harvesting, registering noncitizens.  Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said his office is investigating ballot harvesting and the registration of noncitizens to vote, both of which he suggests may have been orchestrated by third-party organizations.  His office did a citizenship audit of Georgia's voter rolls and found more than 1,600 noncitizens who tried registering to vote, Raffensperger told the John Solomon Reports podcast Tuesday.  "[W]hat I found is we had 1,634 that were never put on the voter rolls, they were in the pending status, because they couldn't prove their citizenship," he explained.  "That's a felony in Georgia to even attempt to register if you're a noncitizen.  And that's a one to 10-year prison term, and up to a $100,000 fine."

The terrible unintended consequences of the Biden presidency (unless they were intended).  Nancy Pelosi let the cat out of the bag when she said, "I feel very confident that Joe Biden will be elected President on Tuesday.  Whatever the end count is on the election that occurs on Tuesday, he will be elected, on January 20th he will be inaugurated President."  [Video clip]  She knew the fix was in.  David Bossie's film Rigged lays out how Mark Zuckerberg funneled at least $400 m[illion] into numerous states for the drop boxes that, as Dinesh D'Souza's film 2000 Mules will show, were used to submit false ballots by the thousands.  Mike Lindell says that he has proven the voting machines were easily hacked and vote counts altered across the country.  No law enforcement agency has addressed why the vote counting stopped at around 11:00 on election night when Trump was ahead in the 4 key battleground states.  There's no doubt in my mind that the election was stolen.

Filmmaker: Documentary Proves Rampant Illegal Vote Trafficking in 2020.  Filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza believes that evidence presented in his new documentary, "2000 Mules," proves that large-scale, illegal vote trafficking occurred in the 2020 election.  D'Souza told The Epoch Times: "2000 Mules will settle the issue beyond a shadow of a doubt by using two powerful, independent modes of investigation.  The evidence is so conclusive, so decisive, that it leaves nothing to argue about."  The film opens in 300 theaters on May 2 and May 4.  D'Souza, who is a contributor to The Epoch Times, said an investigative team used cellphone tracking and video footage to prove that unauthorized intermediaries called "mules" collected thousands of absentee ballots from voters and deposited them in drop boxes for money, which is illegal in all 50 states.  Cellphones emit a unique and identifiable signal or "ping."  Trillions of pings were analyzed by investigators to reconstruct the movements of thousands of mules as they went about their work in the weeks prior to the 2020 presidential election, the documentary claims.

DeSantis Signs Law Creating Election Police Unit.  Florida governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill on Monday creating a state police unit that will specialize in election-related crimes.  The law establishes the Office of Election Crimes and Security, which will have 15 members whose work will include preliminary investigations of election fraud.  DeSantis must also appoint up to ten law enforcement officers to investigate election crimes with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.  The law also makes ballot harvesting a felony instead of a misdemeanor, and raises fines on organizations that violate election laws from $1,000 to $50,000.  DeSantis said the new election crime unit would be able to assist existing law enforcement at a bill signing ceremony.

Investigators in Georgia ballot harvesting probe zero in on funding, eyewitness whistleblower.  Georgia investigators have signaled their focus in a wide-ranging investigation into alleged illegal ballot trafficking during the 2020 election with subpoenas that target the possible source of funding for such an operation and any eyewitness participants.  The four subpoenas obtained Monday [4/25/2022] by Just the News through an open records request show the State Elections Board and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger want the identity of any suspected participants in ballot harvesting, including a whistleblower identified only as John Doe who an election watchdog claims admitted to gathering ballots for cash.  The document demands were delivered late last week to the election integrity watchdog True the Vote, its founder Catherine Engelbrecht, and its researchers from a company called OPSEC Group LLC.  They sought evidence that backs up the group's complaint last November alleging that as many as 242 people illegally gathered third-party ballots during the battleground state's November 2020 election and subsequent U.S. Senate races.

Democrats Attack, Block and Threaten to Sue All Efforts to Uncover Election Fraud.  The 2020 Election was the largest election steal in US history.  It was a mess.  But with all the theft, not one single complaint came from one party — the Democrats.  In fact, all the Democrats have done is block and attack anyone who brings up election fraud and then play the victim when they get caught.  Democrats from the beginning have not had one material complaint about the 2020 Election.  This along with their other actions indicates obvious guilt.  We've seen Democrats attack any legitimate efforts to uncover 2020 Election fraud.  They've blocked doors to counting rooms and forcefully prevented independent observers to see what was going on.

Fraud is the Only Issue.  [Scroll down]  With no actual accomplishments to point to, having ruined everything that was running so well for the American people, Democrats are turning to what has become their most effective electoral tool in recent years:  Fraud.  They did a magnificent job of perpetrating a total fraud on the country in the 2020 Presidential election.  We all know what they did and what they got away with.  Late night Democratic vote "discoveries" totaling in the thousands, untraceable interstate trucks delivering thousands of Biden ballots, voting locales reporting over 100% voter turnout, 19 of 20 bellwether counties being won by President Trump, Republicans not being allowed to monitor the vote counting process, state voting rules being changed in direct contravention to state law, and on and on.  And this point needs to be re-emphasized:  Just because the liberal media refuses to acknowledge these facts, doesn't mean it didn't happen.

Candidate for Georgia governor kicks off debate by proclaiming 'election in 2020 was rigged and stolen'.  Former Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) has remained unrelenting over his concerns about voter integrity and, in the first formal gubernatorial debate against incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp (R-Ga.), he wasted no time in asserting his views that the 2020 election "was rigged and stolen" and that Kemp is partially responsible.  In the first of three scheduled debates leading up to the May 24 primary, the challenger, endorsed by former President Donald Trump, had been granted the opportunity to lead off the introductions Sunday.  Perdue capitalized on his chance to set the stage and made his belief clear that Kemp is as much to blame for the woes Georgia voters are feeling from the failed leadership of President Joe Biden.

1,634 Noncitizens [are] Under Investigation for Attempting to Register to Vote in Georgia.  Georgia's Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has referred 1,634 cases of noncitizens attempting to register to vote for investigation and potential prosecution.  Attempting to register to vote while knowingly being ineligible is a violation of Georgia law.  A citizenship audit conducted by Raffensperger over the past few weeks, which he said was a first for the state, discovered attempts to register to vote by noncitizens in 88 of its 159 counties.

Are Democrats and Joe Biden up to their old election tricks?  [Scroll down]  They might not be any good at governing, but when it comes to seizing power by foul means or fair, they are world-class.  Which brings us to the thorny question of the 2020 election.  Most Americans agree something wasn't quite right about the new rules imposed under cover of COVID.  Forget Sidney Powell's harebrained Kraken that never materialized.  There were lots of ways Democrats tried to tilt the playing field in their favor, some more successfully than others.  Their pals in Big Tech censoring The [New York] Post's Hunter Biden laptop coverage before the election was one triumph.  Now pesky evidence is starting to emerge of systematic schemes to subvert the electoral process — which must not be allowed to happen again if we are to restore faith in elections.

Trump Reveals Trailer of Explosive '2000 Mules' Ballot Harvesting Documentary at Ohio Rally.  Former President Donald Trump on Saturday evening played the trailer of the forthcoming explosive documentary "2000 Mules" which reveals a wide scale ballot trafficking network of ballot harvesters across several swing states.  Trump played the trailer at the rally where he is campaigning with J.D. Vance, the candidate he endorsed for U.S. Senate in this year's Ohio GOP Senate primary.  The documentary, the product of a years-long investigation by election integrity group True The Vote and produced by conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, has been long-awaited and is chock full of surveillance footage showing specific instances of people taking multiple ballots to drop boxes and making trips to several boxes around their states.  The investigation has been anticipated since Breitbart News first revealed it last summer, and Trump has been hyping it for some time now in statements and commentary.

Trailer Released for "2000 Mules" — Shows How the 2020 Election Was Rigged And Stolen.  2000 Mules is a documentary film created by Dinesh D'Souza.  The film exposes the True the Vote's video evidence of a coordinated, funded, illegal ballot trafficking network across critical swing states during the 2020 election. [...] True the Vote has been working with Dinesh D'Souza to create this bombshell movie that uses footage and tracking data they obtained of ballot boxes in key states across America used to steal the election in 2020.  In early January The Gateway Pundit reported to our readers that our organization signed a legal agreement to hand over exclusive video from a major battleground state to True the Vote for their ballot trafficking investigation in the 2020 election.

Report: GOP Warns Raffensperger Of Stacey Abrams' Voter-Education Initiative For GA Students.  Republicans in the U.S. House sent Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger a letter flagging a report that a voter-education initiative spearheaded by Stacey Abrams is teaching students the state's laws restrict voting, The Washington Times reported Thursday.  The letter, written by Reps.  Rodney Davis of Illinois and Virginia Foxx of North Carolina, asked Raffensperger how he plans to combat the initiative, which is taught in Atlanta's public schools, The Washington Times reported.  It was also sent to members of the Georgia State Elections Board and the chair and vice-chair of the Fulton County Elections Board, the Washington Times reported.  Atlanta high school students were asked to attend a democracy class put on by the New Georgia Project, which Abrams founded in 2013, after the city's public schools partnered with the group, as well as Rock the Vote, in August 2021 to implement a "Democracy Class Atlanta" lesson plan focused on "voting rights," according to documents obtained in an open records request, Fox News reported.

Complaint Alleges Over 300,000 'Unverified' Votes in Fulton County, Georgia in 2020.  According to a new complaint to the Georgia State Election Board, more than 300,000 ballots are alleged to have been "unreliably recorded on unverified early voting poll closing tapes in Fulton County, Ga., in the 2020 election," reports Just the News.  David Cross of Election Truth in Georgia filed the complaint on March 28.  The complaint alleges that "Fulton County's Advance Voting poll closing tapes are a fraudulent, un-certified, unsigned, and un-checked false representation of over 311,000 ballots that no court could legally accept."  Joe Biden's state-certified margin of victory in the state was only 11,779 votes.  This comes on the heels of a recent report from Just the News indicating that at least 36 memory cards had to be prematurely removed from Dominion Voting System tabulation machines, "raising new concerns about chain of custody and belatedly discovered memory cards."

Wisconsin 2020 election investigator destroyed 'irrelevant or useless' records.  A Republican lawyer hired to investigate the 2020 presidential election in Wisconsin has reportedly been routinely deleting documents he considers "irrelevant or useless," drawing legal scrutiny.  The practice was revealed after watchdog group American Oversight requested an injunction to hinder Michael Gableman, a former Wisconsin Supreme Court justice spearheading the election review, from destroying the documents.  "Petitioner has learned that Respondent Office of Special Counsel has been regularly deleting records under its clearly incorrect view that it is not required to retain records a view that was explicitly rejected more than six months ago by the Wisconsin Legislative Council and that finds no support in Wisconsin law," the group argued in a court filing Wednesday [4/20/2022].

Dems' Midterms Panic Means More Election 'Irregularities' Are on Their Way.  [Scroll down]  They can pretend all they want that the 2020 election was error-free, but that's a narrative that's been cut out of whole cloth.  Myriad "irregularities" have been — and are still being — discovered.  There is no way to have more vote-by-mail and less fraud.  The embarrassing meltdown we've seen from the leftists over mask mandates going away is rooted in two things and — surprise! — neither of them has the slightest thing to do with public health.  The first, which Paula wrote about on Wednesday, is about the Democrats' unholy lust for federal control over the lives of United States citizens: [...] The second, which I have been writing about for months, is the Democrats' need to keep the COVID panic porn going all year to give them an assist in playing with election laws before the midterms.  Now that most of them have stopped deluding themselves about what's coming, their desperation will get really ugly.  Not that they need the COVID panic porn to implement their election sabotage tricks — much of what they got away with in 2020 has been made permanent in blue states and cities.

Trump hypes 'explosive' 2020 election litigation in Michigan.  Former President Donald Trump touted the "explosive" 2020 election fraud lawsuit in Antrim County, Michigan, in a campaign call on Wednesday.  Trump spoke for roughly five minutes during a telephone town hall event for Matthew DePerno, a Republican candidate for Michigan attorney general who is spearheading the litigation, according to the Detroit News.  "The mistake had to be corrected," Trump said.  "We caught them.  And they said, 'Well, we made a little mistake.'  It wasn't a mistake at all.  It was being caught."

Montana's 2020 Election Irregularities Are Still Unaddressed Despite Recounts Gone Wrong, Erased Records, And Suddenly Surfacing Ballots.  If we are going to avoid the type of debate that we saw after the November 3, 2020 election and restore confidence, then transparency is important.  Take one of the least obvious places where people have concerns about the election — Montana.  Donald Trump won the state in 2020 by 16.4 percent.  But there is an election transparency problem in Missoula County, Montana's second-most populous county.  If errors can occur in even relatively uncontested parts of the country, we should be broadly concerned.  What went wrong?  Well, it all got worse after Covid-19 made mail-in voting mainstream.  Last January 4, a recount of the 2020 election in Missoula made national news when it found 4,592 fewer envelopes than the County Election Office's tally of 72,491 votes.  That is a 6.33 percent difference in votes counted.  The county's election was entirely mail-in, and envelopes were crucial for checking dates and signatures.  During that recount, the Missoula County election board provided 31 boxes of envelopes to be counted.  On March 28, in a count commissioned by the Missoula County Republicans, the count resulted in only 71 fewer envelopes than votes.

It's Not Just Joe Biden.  The United States Has A Potemkin Government.  Consider the fact that the great United States appears unable to run a trustworthy election, nor even to broadly fix major election insecurities even after they are widely visible.  My Republican-run state, for example, grants an entire month of early voting, with no excuses required, which tampers with the electorate's knowledge about candidates, preferences incumbents, and allows for vote trafficking based on which homes have voted early and which have not by election day.

How Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Rigged the 2020 Election to Defeat Trump.  Mark Zuckerberg is best known for creating and leading Facebook, a company that's made him one of the wealthiest men in the world.  With an estimated worth of $80 billion, he poured hundreds of millions of his fortune into the 2020 election.  Here's the thing:  You probably had no idea at the time Zuckerberg was influencing the outcome of the most contentious presidential election in our lifetime.  That's because we didn't learn the true extent of Zuckerberg's financial contributions until the voting already took place.  Now, thanks to a new 40-minute documentary film from Citizens United Productions, we know what he did and how to prevent it from happening again.

Groups with strong liberal ties funneled massive 2020 election grants to Democrat-rich districts.  Private donors led by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg pumped more than $400 million into administering the 2020 presidential election, money that was often funneled by Democratic operatives into Democratic districts in what became essentially a get-out-the-vote effort for President Biden.  The total amount of private donations for carrying out the 2020 election exceeded the federal government's entire allocation for election spending in the same year.  The U.S. Election Assistance Commission was responsible for administering the $400 million in "election security grants" that Congress approved in 2020 to help local officials administer the election amidst a pandemic.

Georgia's Governor Kemp, Who Certified the Corrupted 2020 Election, Now Tries to Distance Himself from the Election.  Georgia Governor Brian Kemp is trying to remove himself from any wrongdoing in the 2020 Election.  However, he was involved and he can't deny that he certified the corrupted and fraudulent results in his state. [...] The problem for Kemp is that he did certify the corrupt results in the state and he did so within minutes of having the opportunity to do so.  What we didn't know at the time was that that entire election in Georgia was a mess and Fulton County was a disaster and that the Secretary of State had an individual inside Fulton County on Election night who told him this was the case.  It was a disaster and still Kemp certified the results.

Citizens United President David Bossie:  One Week After 'Rigged' Film, Zuckerberg 'Throws His Hands Up in Surrender'.  Citizens United President David Bossie celebrated the success of the documentary film from Citizens United Productions, Rigged:  The Zuckerberg-Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump, which details how Mark Zuckerberg dropped $400 million for election efforts to quash former President Trump and bolster then-candidate Joe Biden in the 2020 election, telling Breitbart News Daily that the tech billionaire has already thrown his hands up "in surrender."  This week, the Center for Technology and Civil Life (CTCL), the organization partially responsible for distributing Zuckerberg's $400 million grants for election efforts leading up to the 2020 election, said they would cease to engage in similar behavior in the next election.  This announcement came less than two weeks after the premiere of Rigged, which shows just how Zuckerberg spent millions to defeat Trump.

Poland Shows How to Run Honest Elections.  It's not hard to run honest elections, even without fancy 21st century e-technology.  I actually live in such a country now.  I moved to Poland in 2007, and I can tell everybody that Poland runs honest elections.  Actually, I think this is also true of France, Germany and most countries of Western Europe, but I'll talk here of Poland, since this is the case I'm most familiar with.  Poland assures honest elections by doing two things that the United States does not do.  Poland has a) national ID cards, and b) residential reporting laws.  All residents of Poland, whether they are citizens or not, are required to apply for and receive national ID cards.

Mark Zuckerberg says he won't be so naked about it anymore.  Mark Zuckerberg, whose $419 million "Zuckerbucks" vote-rigging operation played a significant part in swinging the election to Joe Biden in 2020, now says he's a changed man. [...] Don't believe it.  Don't believe it for even one second.  Zuckerberg's mother-of-all-sleazeball political operations, which was described as "bribery" by Wisconsin state special counsel last month, directed cash to two non-government organizations run by veteran Soros and Obama operatives, to help city officials supposedly improve the election experience for voters under the rubric of increasing "inclusiveness" and improving democracy.

There are some things you can question and some things you can't.  In today's America, there are some things one can question... and some things one cannot.  You can question the existence of God. [...] You can question your own gender, but you can't question the LGBTQ agenda in any way, shape or form — for any reason.  Nor can you question the process or results of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, in any way, whether on a national, state, or local level.  If you do, you will promptly be cancelled, disappeared, or otherized.  Seriously questioning how COVID-19 was loosed upon the globe is also strictly verboten.  As is asking questions about the Biden family's ties to — and relations with — China or Ukraine.  In fact, you can't ask a pertinent question of Biden at all.

True the Vote, Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips, Outline Details of 2020 Ballot Harvesting Process.  Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips from 'True the Vote', sat down with Charlie Kirk for a lengthy interview and discussion about the 2020 ballot harvesting process that took place in multiple states.  True the Vote worked through a painstakingly massive data file (2 petabytes) of cell phone use to identify "ballot mules," people who were paid by political activist groups to gather massive numbers of mail-in ballots, take them to a central facility and then drop them off in various ballot collection boxes in specific states, specific counties and approximately 71 specific precincts.  The trackable cell phone data was then matched with CCTV records to identify and document the ballot harvesting activity that took place.  The results of the data were shared with various public officers, state and federal law enforcement in an effort to document the potentially unlawful activity.  Unfortunately, the political clubs (RNC and DNC) have largely ignored the story and avoided participating in any process that would use the information to bolster security efforts for the 2022 election.  It's a lengthy discussion with detail, but well worth the time.  [Video clip]

One Funeral at a Time.  Since the middle of the last century, Ohio has been viewed as a bellwether for the mood of the American people.  Presidential campaigns have focused on the state, believing it is always the key to victory.  Only twice since the Second World War has Ohio failed to vote for the winner of the presidential election.  Interestingly, those two outlier elections were marred by credible allegations of massive vote fraud.  Putting aside the fraud issue, Ohio's centrality to the Dionysian theater that is American politics makes the 2022 Senate race worth watching.

Engelbrecht and Phillips on the Charlie Kirk Show on 2020 Fraud and "2000 Mules" — 1155 Ballot Traffickers in PA.  True the Vote's Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips joined Turning Point USA founder and executive director Charlie Kirk for an interview last Thursday.  Engelbrecht and Phillips discussed their extremely high-tech probe into an "organized crime" ballot trafficking operation they say most definitely helped swing the 2020 election away from now-former President Donald Trump.  True the Vote released several never before seen video clips of ballot traffickers in Georgia during the interview.  During their explosive interview with Charlie Kirk Catherine and Gregg dropped several bombs, including:
  •   The NRSC was given evidence of voter fraud and did nothing.
  •   Brian Kemp led a fight against True the Vote to get to the truth.
  •   The FBI and DOJ used cellphone 'ping' data to identify, locate and arrest January 6 protesters but DID NOT use this same technique to identify ballot traffickers in 2020
  •   Ballot traffickers were operating in Georgia in the 2018 election — including a number of the same suspects!
  •   The ballot traffickers, or mules were making from $10 to $40 per ballot dumped into the ballot boxes.

Voting in France is on Sunday:  NO Mail-in Ballots, NO Dirty Voting Machines, Only Paper Ballots and Everyone Must Show a Voter ID.  Democrats could never make it in France.  They can't cheat.  Voting in the French presidential election is Sunday.  There are NO mail-in ballots.  There are no dirty voting machines.  Only paper ballots are used.  And everyone must show a voter ID.  Every democracy has voter ID laws — except the US where Democrats fight these laws.  Why is that?  Do they really think blacks so beneath them that they can't get a free ID?  Or are they cheating?

Beware the 'paper shortage' election ruse.  In the fall of 2020, I warned repeatedly on social media, TV and in my syndicated column about the Zuckerberg Heist — Silicon Valley's hijacking of our election system through a private nonprofit called the Center for Tech and Civic Life.  CTCL was funded by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, to the tune of $350 million.  Election information-rigging Google joined as a top corporate partner, along with the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Democracy Fund (founded by Never Trumper billionaire and eBay former chairman Pierre Omidyar).  CTCL created a "COVID-19 Response Grant Program" to "provide funding to U.S. local election offices" that steered voters toward insecure, fraud-vulnerable alternatives to traditional voting.  The Amistad Project led the way in exposing how CTCL's "dark money network pumped hundreds of millions of dollars into local election systems using the COVID pandemic as a pretense."  And as I noted at the time, the scamdemic and performative lockdowns provided a handy ruse to sabotage our regular Election Day experience through less transparent, more manipulable absentee and vote-by-mail mechanisms.

Explosive Pennsylvania Testimony Explains How Leftist Money Infiltrated Election Offices In 2020.  The Democrat governor's office in Pennsylvania colluded with left-wing activists to secure millions of dollars in private money to run get-out-the-vote efforts in blue counties in the swing state in 2020, new, explosive testimony revealed.  The Pennsylvania legislature heard this testimony, backed up by email evidence, on Tuesday during the first public hearing on two new bills seeking to block private grants.  Tuesday's public hearing began with statements by the respective primary sponsors of the bills that seek to ban dark money from elections, with Sen. Lisa Baker speaking in support of Senate Bill 982 and Rep. Eric Nelson encouraging passage of House Bill 2044.  Pennsylvania investigative journalist Todd Shepherd then testified at length on the results of his extensive probe into the insertion of private funds into the 2020 election.

Mike Lindell Claims Overseas Ballots Including Military Ballots Were Stolen for Joe Biden.  Business mogul Mike Lindell joined Steve Bannon on The War Room on Thursday morning.  During their discussion, Mike Lindell told Steve he has evidence that all of the overseas ballots in 2020 were marked for Joe Biden.  The ballots were tampered with and the votes all went to Biden.  The Gateway Pundit has reported extensively on this 2020 voter fraud scheme in several battleground states.  We have reported on several instances in three swing states that back up Mike Lindell's claims.  During an Arizona Senate session back in February, the discussion turned to the UOCAVA voters — the voters covered under the Uniform Overseas Civilian Absentee Voting Act.  These are the men and women who are serving their country in the military and send in a mail-in vote from where they are stationed outside the country.

Report: Ballot Harvesters in Georgia Stopped at Democrat Offices In between Runs to Drop Boxes During 2020 Election.  During the 2020 election, ballot traffickers in Georgia allegedly stopped at Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams' headquarters, and at least one other Democrat Party office in between their runs to stuff unmanned drop boxes with ballots.  Surveillance video featured in conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza's upcoming movie "2000 Mules," reportedly shows people coming out of their cars "night after night" with piles of ballots, and stuffing them into drop boxes funded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.  Election integrity activists used geospatial technology to track the ballot harvesters' cellphones to precise locations.

Biden FEC Nominee Admits Her Name Is On Legal Document Attesting Voting Machines Used In Georgia Illegally Switched Votes From One Candidate To Another.  For a year and a half, My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell has been called a liar, big box stores like Kroger, Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohls, Wayfair, and others have dropped his products from their stores over his claims that the voting machines in the 2020 election switched the votes causing Joe Biden to win the election illegally.  MI Constitutional attorney Matt DePerno, who hasn't given up on his legal battle in Antrim County, MI, to prove voting machines have the ability to switch votes, has been demonized by Democrats, including the current Attorney General Dana Nessel, who Matt DePerno hopes to run against in the November 2022 election if he wins the nomination of the MI Republican delegates.  Yet incredibly today [4/6/2022], while testifying in front of the Senate Rules and Administration Committee, FEC nominee Dara Lindenbaum, an election lawyer and former General Counsel to Stacey Abrams' campaign, admitted to Senator Ted Cruz that she put her name on a legal document swearing that voting machines illegally changed votes from one candidate to another.

Biden's FEC Nominee Sued Georgia Over Stacey Abrams Election Loss, Blamed 'Unreliable' Voting Machines.  President Joe Biden's pick to serve on the Federal Election Commission is representing Stacey Abrams's nonprofit and Raphael Warnock's church in a lawsuit that challenged the validity of Georgia's 2018 election due in part to the state's use of "unreliable" electronic voting machines.  In November 2018, election lawyer Dara Lindenbaum signed on to a federal legal complaint on behalf of Abrams's Fair Fight Action.  The complaint challenged the constitutionality of Georgia's 2018 election, which saw Abrams lose to Republican governor Brian Kemp in a race she never conceded.  Warnock's Ebenezer Baptist Church joined the suit in early 2019, just months before the Democrat entered Georgia's 2020 Senate race.

Former AG Barr Stopped Investigations into Trailer Load of 288,000 Ballots into PA from New York in 2020 Election.  Truck driver Jesse Morgan moved mail for the US Postal Service and came out after the election and shared his story of how he hauled tens of thousands of ballots from New York to Pennsylvania before the 2020 Election.  We reported on this in December 2020.  We learned in the summer of 2021 that former US Attorney General Bill Barr ordered the US Attorney in Eastern Pennsylvania to stop investigating 2020 Election issues in the state and turn any issues over to the Democrat Pennsylvania Attorney General.  This would have included the reports of approximately 288,000 ballots entering Pennsylvania on a semi-trailer from New York.

Court Reinstates Louisiana AG's Lawsuit Against Zuckerberg's Election-Meddling Group.  Last week, a Louisiana appellate court reinstated Attorney General Jeff Landry's lawsuit challenging Mark Zuckerberg's infiltration of the state election system with private "Zuck Bucks" that flooded the country during the 2020 election.  The lawsuit, State of Louisiana v.  Center for Tech and Civic Life, originated in October 2020.  That's when Louisiana, through Landry, sought a court order declaring that "private contributions to local election officials and the election system in general are unlawful and contrary to Louisiana law."  Landry's lawsuit followed attempts by the Zuckerberg-funded Center for Tech and Civic Life to dole out millions in targeted grants to election officials throughout the state.

Experts Claim in Testimony At Least 4.8 Million Ballots [were] Trafficked in the 2020 Election.  Thousands of ballots were trafficked in Wisconsin.  Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips from True the Vote testified Thursday before the Campaigns and Elections Committee in the Wisconsin Assembly on their investigation of ballot trafficking at ballot drop boxes in Wisconsin.  According to True the Vote 7% of the ballots in Wisconsin at the ballot drop boxes were likely fraudulent votes.  They estimate over 137,000 ballots were trafficked in Wisconsin.  Joe Biden "won" Wisconsin by less than 21,000 votes.

Will the Democrats Accept the Midterm Results?  The Democrats are about to lose their congressional majorities, and they are polluting our politics with a good vs. evil narrative in the hope of obscuring their myriad failures from the voters.  When Nancy Pelosi says she fears for our democracy if the GOP retakes Congress, what she's really worried about is losing power.  Pelosi will do and say anything to avoid that, even if it means actively undermining the legitimacy of the November midterm elections.

Mark Zuckerberg [was] Involved in Significant 2020 Election Interference, New Documentary Exposes.  Big Tech continues to be called out for its role in interfering with the 2020 election.  On Thursday [3/31/2022], as I covered, Republican members on the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter's Parag Agrawal about censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story.  Also on Thursday, Citizens United President David Bossie went on Fox News' "Hannity" to promote a new documentary, "Rigged:  The Zuckerberg-Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump." [...] The documentary will focus on the key battleground states of Wisconsin, Arizona, and Georgia, where there have been particular concerns about the election and vote counts there.  "Rigged" will address the cash flow from CTCL and CEIR in those states, where Biden's combined margin of victory was at about 42,000 votes, and which were key in handing Biden an electoral victory and the election.

Obama Judge Has Hissy Fit Over Florida's Election Law.  In May 2021, the Florida legislature passed a major overhaul of state election law.  The law's goals were to make elections more transparent and trustworthy while outlawing known abuses of the system, particularly those abuses that came into being based on the whim of unelected officials and judges to allegedly allow the system to cope with an election during a pandemic. [...] All in all, it is a valiant effort that regularizes processes across the state, prevents ballot harvesting, opens up closed backrooms to observers, and demolishes the whole "sue and settle" industry used by the left to get rid of laws that rein in fraud.  Naturally, it must be opposed.

Elise Stefanik Slams Democrats for Enabling Unconstitutional Gerrymandering.  Republican Conference chairwoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) slammed New York Assembly Democrats for designing a gerrymandered map that was struck down as unconstitutional on Thursday [3/31/2022].  "The decision rendered by Judge Patrick McAllister is a win for all New Yorkers and confirms what we have been saying all along:  New York Democrats drew gerrymandered congressional lines to protect themselves and hurt all New Yorkers, specifically the North Country," Stefanik exclusively told Breitbart News about the GOP's successful legal victory.  The success may cost Democrats three to four seats in the U.S. Congress.  A lower New York court threw out the state's newly drawn Democrat-designed gerrymandered map because it violated the state's constitutional redistricting process.  The huge ruling for Republicans will be appealed to the Court of Appeals, the state's top court.

Election cheating?  Stefanik challenger admits being caught on video altering ballot petitions.  Before he dropped from the race, a GOP challenger to Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., was captured in video footage altering information on voter petitions to secure his access to the ballot.  Just the News obtained two videos shot by a Stefanik supporter that show Lonny Koons making changes to the forms while sitting in his car March 24 in a Walmart parking lot in Ticonderoga, N.Y.  The videographer who shot them confirmed their authenticity to Just the News.  In an interview Friday, Koons confirmed the videos to Just the News, and said he was was "correcting errors and blanks on the petitions" and had only recently learned what he did might be considered fraudulent or cheating.

America is suffering from a gigantic loss of trust.  Whatever they may say, progressives loathe democracy.  And they will do their utmost to destroy it.  Their behavior in the 2020 election, and since, proves the point.  I don't know who won the 2020 presidential election.  But I have a pretty good idea who did.  Progressives tell me who really did by their behavior: they adamantly refuse to allow fair audits of the election.  You oppose an audit only if you know you have cheated enough to win.  And we know from overwhelming testimony that cheating was rampant.

Democrats Have Painted Themselves into a Corner.  Democrats broke a host of state laws to allow improper ballots to install a decaying derelict in the White House.  According to the Pottery Barn rule, they broke it, so they bought it.  No one without a "D" has any responsibility for any part of the fallout from nuking election laws and procedures.  Many states have seen the carnage and built firewalls against future malfeasance.  So the way that the last election was "managed" is no longer available.  This suggests that the party of Biden is in for trouble.  So what can they do?

More Evidence of 2020 Voter Fraud.  John Lott has published a paper in which he applies three tests for voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. [...] Lott begins by looking at adjacent precincts that are in different counties.  He did this for Fulton County, Georgia and Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.  The operative assumption is that precincts across the street from one another shouldn't vote very differently (Lott controlled for demographic factors), suggesting that significant differences among the precincts relate to vote counting at the county level.  This analysis found at least 10,000 extra votes for Biden in those two counties.  Next, Lott applies the same approach to provisional ballots in Allegheny County, where voters were illegally allowed to correct defects in absentee ballots by submitting provisional ballots on election day.  Lott finds an extra 6,700 Biden votes because of this illegality.

US Postal Service Refuses to Release Investigative Report on Whistleblower Truck Driver Who Hauled 288,000 Suspicious Ballots Across State Lines.  Pennsylvania Attorney Tom King says that the United States Postal Service refuses to provide the report from its investigation of the semi-trailer full of ballots that went missing before the 2020 Election in the state.  In addition, the PA Supreme Court has yet to rule on election cases involving Dominion machines used in Fulton County Pennsylvania.  Joe Hoft from the TGP interviewed attorney Tom King from Pennsylvania.  Tom is from a family rich in history with the GOP and is now assisting Fulton County in a couple of court cases related to the 2020 Election.  Tom shared some breaking information on the status of the USPS truck driver and whistleblower who reported to authorities that he dropped off a trailer full of ballots in Pennsylvania before the 2020 Election.

Republican NY Supreme Court judge rules Democrats gerrymandered congressional districts and blocks their use in upcoming election.  New York's electoral maps were thrown into chaos on Thursday after a judge on the state Supreme Court ordered Democrats to go back to the drawing board and work with the Republicans.  The new maps were signed into law in February, as a consequence of the census — which every 10 years gives an updated view of the population, and a chance to redraw electoral districts to match.  It is meant to provide a chance to rectify fluctuations in the number of residents, so that each district is as equal in population to all other congressional districts in the state.  In practice, it is often a highly-contested process whereby Democrats and Republicans jostle to redraw the maps in their favor.

AZ State Senator Sonny Borrelli:  Unmonitored Dropboxes Revealed Over 733,000 Unaccounted for Ballots in Maricopa County's 2020 Election.  Yesterday, Arizona State Senator Sonny Borrelli delivered an update on the fight to ban unmonitored dropboxes in Arizona and the ongoing criminal investigation into Arizona's 2020 election.  The Gateway Pundit previously reported on an investigation into Maricopa County ballot harvesting efforts, which used Public Records Requests for all ballot box retrieval and chain of custody forms utilized in Maricopa County during the 2020 General Election.  The report concluded that Maricopa County officials violated Arizona law and do not have the required chain of custody for at least 740,000 ballots.  This investigation discovered that proper chain-of-custody documentation for the transfer of voted ballots from drop boxes was almost nonexistent.  Last Monday, The Arizona Senate Government committee considered HB2238, which was passed in the Arizona House to ban the unconstitutional unmonitored drop boxes.

Over 60,000 voters on NC rolls are dead, registered twice or enrolled in other state[s], report warns.  With midterms elections in North Carolina starting in about six weeks, more than 60,000 registered voters in the state are dead, registered in another state or registered twice under variations of their name, according to a new watchdog report.  The report released Tuesday [3/29/2022] by the Public Interest Legal Foundation, a nonprofit law firm focused on election integrity, in one example found 7,933 North Carolinians are still registered to vote after having died in 2020.  "North Carolina officials need to use the time they still have to prepare voter rolls for the midterm elections," foundation President J. Christian Adams said.  "Time is running out.  Silly, obvious errors in the voter roll can create opportunities for voter fraud and chaos in a close election.  Correcting deceased and duplicate records now will help to preemptively address those risks."

Hunter Biden, the New York Times, and the Coming Impeachment.  [Scroll down]  Some people, perhaps many people, lost friends when they claimed that the 2020 election was stolen.  Their former friends said there simply wasn't enough evidence to support that claim.  But how do we know — or rather, how do they know?  If you ask them, they will tell you only what they have read or heard from the media, media that we know now (well, we knew it all along) are dishonest:  we know that because that is the import of the New York Times's confession of error.  The awful truth is that you, Mr. and Mrs. America, wherever you are, have no idea whether the election was honest or not, because your only way of determining that is by what you read and hear from the media — which is shamefully dishonest and was totally in the bag for Joe Biden.

True the Vote Findings.  [Thread reader]  7 percent of mail-in ballots were trafficked in Wisconsin[.]  137,551 trafficked votes in election decided by 20,682[.]  But it wasn't just Wisconsin...  4.8 Million ballots [were] trafficked in the 2020 Election[.]  7% of mail-in ballots were trafficked in every Swing State True the Vote has looked in[.]  "It's an organized crime that was perpetrated on Americans[.]"  How they did it:
    Exploit inaccurate voter rolls
    Mass mail ballots
    Use NGO's
    Fund drop boxes

A paper shortage is looming over the 2022 elections.  Supply chain snags are making it harder for election officials to secure the raw materials they need to put on this year's primaries: paper and envelopes.  Local governments are placing orders months in advance for the supplies they need to print and mail ballots and other materials to make sure they don't get caught without voting materials.  The strain, caused by the same global issues holding up everything from garage doors to computer chips, is stretching already-thin election budgets and making long-term planning more challenging.  So far, there hasn't yet been a repeat of the situation in Texas, which had to limit the number of voter registration forms it gave to organizations ahead of the March primaries — but the 2022 midterms are just getting started, with a slew of statewide primaries approaching in May.

14 of Ballot Harvesters in Wisconsin Also Participated in One or More of Violent Riots in 2020.  Black Lives Matter-Antifa mobs caused over one billion dollars in damages in cities across America since May.  In Minneapolis alone, Black Lives Matter mobs damaged or destroyed over 1,500 businesses or buildings.  Over 700 police officers were injured in the BLM riots — and that was back in June!  Black Lives Matter was linked to conservatively 91% of the riots that resulted in the most expensive property damage in US insurance history[.]  Democrats incited the Black Lives Matter mobs for months as they destroyed communities across the country.  Many of these left-wing protesters ALSO were identified as ballot traffickers in Wisconsin.  Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips from True the Vote testified last week before the Campaigns and Elections Committee in the Wisconsin Assembly on their investigation of ballot trafficking at ballot drop boxes in Wisconsin.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Refers Criminal Action Against AZ Secretary of State Katie Hobbs For Election Crimes.  The Arizona Attorney General has referred criminal action against Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs to the Cochise County Attorney, Brian McIntyre.  In a letter sent Tuesday [3/29/2022], Attorney General Mark Brnovich delegated his powers to enforce criminal action against crooked Katie Hobbs for shutting down the online candidate petition portal and intentionally violating the law.

Biden got 255,000 'excess' votes in fraud-tainted swing states in 2020, study finds.  President Biden received hundreds of thousands of "excess" votes in Democratic-controlled areas in the 2020 election, according to an academic study on voter fraud that suggests the push to relax voting standards created new opportunities for electoral mischief.  John R. Lott Jr., the man behind the research, teased out those numbers by comparing Democratic-dominant areas to Republican-dominant places over the past two presidential elections, particularly in places where claims of election fraud were reported in 2020.

Are We Sure The 2020 Election Was Clean?  Americans have been warned by their superiors to not question the outcome of the 2020 election, because it will further the Donald Trump Big Lie that the presidency was stolen from him.  Yet we continue to see shreds of evidence that say the Big Lie is in fact the claim that the 2020 election wasn't corrupted.  Merely mentioning doubts about the legitimacy of the presidential election that put a doddering, grafting, plagiarizing, on-the-wrong-side-of-everything Joe Biden in the White House is enough to be sent to Twitter jail, get flagged by Facebook, and attacked in the mainstream media.  Shame is heaped on anyone who dares question the Democrat-media-Never Trump narrative that Biden won a fair and orderly election.  Of course the left has behaved in the most hysterical ways possible, feigning fear and ever searching for a fainting couch to fall into, shocked that some Trump voters actually have had the gall to express misgivings.

North Carolina Voter Rolls [are] Rife with Deceased, Duplicate Registrations After 2020 Election.  Tens of thousands of deceased and duplicative voter registrations were found after the 2020 election in North Carolina, according to a Tuesday report from the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF).  PILF, which describes itself as a public interest law firm dedicated to election integrity, cross-referenced state records and found that 7,933 North Carolinians were still registered to vote "long after death" in 2020. Roughly 12,940 deceased registrants were found on the rolls in the spring of 2020, "ranking the state 8th in the nation."

Republicans Secure an Election-Shaking Victory in Ohio Redistricting.  The sweet smell of victory is in the air this morning after it became apparent that Republicans are going to win the redistricting fight in Ohio.  As RedState reported previously (see Pain and Loathing Commence After Surprise Ohio Redistricting Decision), despite the Ohio Supreme Court once again striking down maps drawn by the GOP legislature, the decision itself was entered as a final judgment.  What that meant is that any challenge to the next maps submitted would need to start all over as a new lawsuit.

Court Rules Democrats Engaged in "Extreme Partisan Gerrymander" in Maryland.  I recently wrote a column on the hypocrisy of Democratic activists and members denouncing attacks on democracy as they engage in raw gerrymandering in states like New York.  Marc Elias, the former Clinton Campaign general counsel accused of hiding the funding of the Steele Dossier, filed in support the gerrymandered map.  The case is Szeliga vs. Lamone.  This is the first time that a congressional map has been thrown out in the history of the state.  (It is important to note that Republicans have also had courts rule against them in states like North Carolina and Pennsylvania).  While only 55 percent of Maryland identifies as Democratic, the map would have given Democrats a huge advantage in every district by carefully "cracking" or distributing Republican voting pockets to diffuse their power.

Milwaukee officials face Zuckerberg-related election bribery lawsuit.  Three Milwaukee, Wisconsin, officials face accusations of illegally taking "Zuck Bucks" to facilitate voting by purchasing absentee ballot drop boxes, among other things, according to a lawsuit filed by the Thomas More Society.  The complaint, filed last week against Milwaukee Acting Mayor Cavalier Johnson, former Mayor Tom Barrett, and City Clerk Jim Owczarski, claims the officials violated Wisconsin's election bribery law by taking private donations from the non-profit Center for Tech and Civic Life, which is funded by billionaire Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan.  "This is representative of a national trend," Thomas More Society Special Counsel Erick Kaardal said in a press release.  "Sixteen states have now passed legislation to ban or regulate the acceptance and use of private funds by public election officers.  Thomas More Society attorneys, prior to the 2020 election, were the first to litigate this issue.  Thomas More Society lawyers filed litigation in nine states.  "All of this litigation led to successful legislative action to ban this 'dark money.'"

New report: 255,000 'excess votes' for Biden in six key 2020 states.  A new deep dive into discrepancies in the ballot counts of six key battleground states in the 2020 election has turned up more than 250,000 "excess votes" for President Joe Biden, and maybe far more.  The key point in the upcoming peer-reviewed study for the journal Public Choice by economist and noted gun expert John Lott Jr. is that the excess voting may challenge — or explain — Biden's margin of victory over former President Donald Trump in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.  In his report, on the Public Choice website but still awaiting final approval, Lott said that there were 255,000 excess votes and possibly as many as 368,000 for Biden in the key states.

President Trump Lays Out the Voter Fraud in Georgia from 2020 Election during Commerce, GA Speech.  President Trump spoke tonight in Commerce, Georgia to a crowd of thousands.  105,000 people were watching RSBN Rumble live before Trump even hit the stage.  That number grew to 175,000 when Trump took the stage!  President Trump spelled out the numerous ways Democrats with the help of RINO Republicans stole the 2020 election in the state of Georgia.

The Stealing of the Presidency, 2020.  The left-wing news media didn't just poison the information environment with their incessantly negative coverage of President Trump going into the 2020 election.  They also refused to give airtime to important arguments of the Republican campaign — both pro-Trump and anti-Biden — which meant millions of voters cast their ballots knowing only what the media permitted them to know about the candidates.  To measure the true effect of the media's censorship on the election, the Media Research Center asked The Polling Company to survey 1,750 Biden voters in seven swing states (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), six of which (all but North Carolina) were called for Biden.  We tested these voters' knowledge of eight news stories — all important topics that our ongoing analysis had shown the liberal news media had failed to cover properly.  We found that a huge majority (82%) of Biden voters were unaware of at least one of these key items, with five percent saying they were unaware of all eight of the issues we tested.  This lack of information proved crucial:  One of every six Biden voters we surveyed (17%) said they would have abandoned the Democratic candidate had they known the facts about one or more of these news stories.  A shift of this magnitude would have changed the outcome in all six of the swing states won by Joe Biden, and Donald Trump would have comfortably won a second term as president.

American "election" reform?  Don't make me laugh.  I've argued before a couple-three times that the only way to minimize vote fraud and meaningfully reform our elections, here or anywhere, is actually quite simple:
  •   Use ONLY paper ballots, marked and counted by hand
  •   Vote ONLY on election day
  •   Require valid ID and proof of voter registration
  •   Voter MUST present himself bodily at his designated polling station — mail-in ballots limited strictly to military personnel, diplomats and emnbassy staff, and people abroad for business purposes, in a strictly-enforced and brief timeframe
  •   Election observers MUST be present — FROM ALL PARTIES — at polling places and, later, at counting stations, allowed unfettered access for close observation of all procedures, personnel, and materials
  •   NO electronic voting or counting machines — NONE, EVER
  •   After voting, participants will receive an indelible mark on their thumb comfirming they'd already cast their ballot, disqualifying them from doing so again
[...] It's long been my opinion that, when it comes to elections, technology is NOT our friend; the old, tested and true methods are best.

Another Video Emerges Showing Person Stuffing Ballot Drop Box With Large Stack of Ballots in PA.  Earlier this morning [3/24/2022], Catherine Englebrecht of True the Vote and Gregg Phillips of Vote Stand testified in front of the WI Elections Commission, where they shared evidence of ballot harvesters delivering ballots to ballot drop boxes in Democrat stronghold districts in Wisconsin.  [Tweet]  Last month, we reported about a male in Atlanta who was caught on a surveillance camera stuffing a ballot drop box with ballots.

Mike Lindell Drops 88-Page Forensic Report Showing Conclusive Evidence of Manipulated Voter Files From Mesa, Colorado.  For several months, Mike Lindell has been championing a forensic review of voter files from Mesa County, Colorado.  In a series of forensic reports looking into Colorado's use of Dominion vote tabulators, a data forensic team led by cyber-security expert Doug Gould have been reviewing electronic files from the 2020 election.  According to Mike Lindell, Doug Gould and the team of forensic analysts who just completed the work, have conclusive evidence that files were manipulated and deleted during a May 2021, software update driven by the system vendor, Dominion.  Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters made a copy of the election files before and after the Dominion vendor installed software.  A forensic review of those files shows a difference in the actual voting tabulation.  Mike Lindell notes he is filing injunctions immediately against seven states to stop them from using these electronic systems in the 2022 election, and later more injunctions will be filed in other states.  The evidence to support those injunctions is included in the 88-page report.  [Video clip]

Following Bombshell Report, AZ Attorney General Directs Maricopa County to Turn Over Mail-In Ballot Signature Files.  The Election Systems Integrity Institute released a report this month concluding that the Maricopa County, Arizona, mail-in ballot signature verification process used during the 2020 general election was deeply flawed.  The study, overseen by systems engineer Shiva Ayyadurai, found that the county allowed approximately 200,000 ballot envelopes with mismatched signatures to be forwarded for counting without further review.  Ayyadurai, who has multiple degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, testified last fall before the Arizona Senate regarding the findings of the Maricopa County 2020 general election audit.

Georgia Elections Board Approves Subpoena Power for Probe into Potential 2020 Election Fraud.  The Georgia Elections Board granted subpoena power to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on Monday to secure evidence into possible illegal ballot harvesting in the 2020 election.  In January, Raffensperger announced he would probe a complaint submitted in November by True the Vote, which details digital data of 242 people making visits to drop boxes to dump mail-in ballots.  The complaint says about 40 percent of the trips occurred between midnight and 5:00 a.m., an unusual time to drop off ballots.  The probe is also looking into whether participants in the scheme were paid $10 for each ballot they dropped in the unsecure dropbox.

Maricopa County Receives Renewed Request For Records Or Information In 2020 Election Investigation.  After stonewalling the Arizona Senate for nearly a year on access to routers, Splunk logs, and other subpoenaed items that were used in the rigged 2020 Presidential Election, Maricopa County continues to defy even the Arizona Attorney General!  AZ Attorney General Mark Brnovich certified the fraudulent election, and he is certifying the cover-up by allowing the County to continue withholding elections machines and data.

The Editor says...
Unless you're addressing an envelope or typesetting an article in a newspaper, where space is limited, there is no reason to refer to Arizona (or any other state) by its two-letter postal code.  (In this case, AZ.)  That's just laziness.  Facebook habits are not necessarily appropriate everywhere on the internet.  There's plenty of room on a web page for you to spell out "Arizona."

Conspirators in Their Own Words.  We remember the conundrum over the 2020 election.  Most conservatives sensed that the election was "only" rigged in the sense that the Left earlier had openly conspired to sue states to drop or change balloting laws.  They had sought to warp bureaucracies to change protocols, to pour money into key precincts to absorb the work of registrars, and to transition the nation to a 100-million early and mail-in ballots election.  Mark Zuckerberg alone poured nearly $420 million in what the Left used to call "dark money" to alter the very way Americans vote.  It worked.  For the first time in our history, well over 60 percent of the ballots were not cast on Election Day.  That fact alone rendered the second presidential debate irrelevant.  More mysteriously, the usual rejection rate of mail-in ballots fell from 3-5 percent in most states to a fraction of that normal percentage.  So the deluge of ballots meant not that more were naturally suspect, but fewer than ever before?  But again, don't believe conservatives.  The Left was so giddy with their massaging of the election that they wanted their skullduggery high-fived and immortalized.  So the "conspiracy" was lauded in detail in Molly Ball's infamous Time magazine essay, "The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election."

The New York Times Doesn't Care If You Know That Big Tech Helped Rig Joe Biden's Election.  On March 17, 2022, The New York Times stated it had verified the authenticity of a laptop and its data as belonging to the president's son, Hunter Biden.  This was the same laptop holding information that Twitter, Facebook, and other corporate media immediately suppressed when The New York Post, a right-leaning competitor of The New York Times, reported on it three weeks before the 2020 presidential election.  If they had known about one of the Biden family scandals, such as the Hunter Biden laptop information, 17 percent of Joe Biden's voters wouldn't have voted for him, found a 2020 post-election poll.  This means big tech's suppression of this story likely made enough difference to tip Joe Biden into his low-margin win in the Electoral College.

To Date Not One Single Independent, Objective and Complete Audit of Dominion Voting Machines Used in the 2020 Election Has Taken Place.  Dominion voting machines were used across the country in various states and counties.  Yet, since the 2020 Election, not one single independent, objective and complete audit of the Dominino machines used in the 2020 Election has taken place.  Dominion voting machines were used across the country in the 2020 election, not in all states but in many.  But these machines have not been completely audited by independent and objective experts at any location since the 2020 Election.

President Trump Puts AZ Attorney General Mark Brnovich On Notice.  President Trump has released a statement putting Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich on notice while praising Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate Kari Lake for her huge primary lead, which is greatly due to her agenda to get to the bottom of the 2020 election.  The Maricopa County election audit discovered massive evidence of election law violations and hundreds of thousands of illegal ballots in the 2020 election.  All evidence was delivered to Arizona Attorney General Brnovich last September, and we have seen no action!  President Trump asks, "When is the Attorney General of Arizona going to rule on all of the Election Fraud and large-scale Election Irregularities that wait before him?"  [The] Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate is laser-focused on the stolen 2020 election.  Because of this, she is the Trump-endorsed Republican frontrunner for the August Primary Election.

Wisonsin House Speaker Admits 'There Was Widespread Fraud' in 2020 Election, Still Refuses to Decertify Election.  This is as bad as it gets, the Wisconsin House speaker, RINO Republican Robin Vos just admitted on camera that the Democrats cheated to win the 2020 election to install our Fake President Joe Biden.  He said they have proof of widespread fraud, but then immediately says that he doesn't have the power to overturn the election and decertify the 2020 election based on the massive amount of fraud that has already been revealed and more that he knows will be released to the public.  This is the 4th swing state that has now admitted Democrats cheated in order to steal the 2020 election from Trump and yet not a single one of them is doing anything to overturn it and install the rightful winner of the 2020 election, Donald J. Trump.  [Video clip]

Democrat official in Michigan charged with ballot tampering, misconduct in 2020 election.  A former Michigan county township clerk has been charged with ballot tampering and official misconduct in connection with an expected recount in her own August 2020 primary election.  Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced the charges on Friday against ex-Flint Township Clerk Kathy Funk, a Democrat who will face trial in Genesee County District court.  Funk is accused of intentionally breaking a seal on a ballot container so the votes could not be counted in an anticipated recount.  Funk was running for reelection, and narrowly prevailed in the unofficial count, Nessel said.  Funk also was serving at the time as an election official.  A recount did not happen.  Funk later resigned her township job and took a job as Genesee County election supervisor.

New group aims to disbar attorneys who aided Trump 2020 election lawsuits.  A new dark money group with ties to Democrats known as the 65 Project is attempting to disbar more than 100 lawyers who worked on former President Donald Trump's post-election lawsuits.  The 65 Project describes itself as "a bipartisan effort to protect democracy from abuse of the legal system by holding accountable lawyers who engage in fraudulent and malicious lawsuits," according to its website, which said it was given its name after an "army of Big Lie Lawyers filed 65 lawsuits based on lies to overturn the election."

New Rules on Extremism — DHS Will Target Anyone Who Believes Election Was Stolen or Who Challenged Fauci's Everchanging COVID Narrative.  In Joe Biden's first year in office over 2 million illegal aliens from dozens of countries walked into the United States across the southern border.  The numbers this year look even greater.  Joe Biden and DHS Secretary Mayorkas immediately opened up the US southern border after they came into office.  Biden also set another record.  Only 59,011 illegals were deported his first year in office.  This was the lowest number since 1995.

Did You Know Green Bay's Election Was Run From A Hotel Room?  There are so many newsworthy details contained in the just-released Wisconsin Special Counsel Report on the 2020 Election that it's hard to know where to begin.  Every American citizen should read this report because it explains how the election was stolen by Democrats.  That alone makes it worthwhile. [...] Why was a lawyer from Brooklyn in control of an election in Wisconsin?  That's a good question.  Let's begin, though, with an explanation of why it's been so hard to get any good questions answered at all.  Just take a look at your calendar:  it's March 2022.  The retired Wisconsin Supreme Court judge who conducted this Special Counsel investigation would remind all of us, first, that we're talking about companies that are hiding their tracks.

Wisconsin's Voting Machines Were Connected To The Internet During The 2020 Election.  Last August, Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos authorized the Office of Special Counsel (OSC), headed by retired state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman, to investigate concerns about the 2020 election.  Gableman delivered an interim report to the state assembly on November 10, 2021.  Last Tuesday, Gableman delivered a second interim report to the Wisconsin Assembly's elections committee.  Mr. Gableman wrote, "Ultimately, WEC's directives mandated that widespread "election fraud" be undertaken in relation to the November 2020 election."  Mr. Gableman vetted more than 90 nursing homes in five different counties before concluding there was "widespread election fraud at Wisconsin nursing homes in November of 2020."  [Tweet]  Mr. Gableman also found that $8.8 million in Zuckerberg grant funds directed solely to five Democratic strongholds in Wisconsin violated the state's election code's prohibition on bribery.  He wrote, "The record created by public document requests shows that CTCL, a private company headquartered in Chicago, engaged in an election bribery scheme."

Michigan Election Official Charged With Ballot Tampering, Misconduct.  A Michigan county elections official and former township clerk was charged with ballot tampering related to the August 2020 primary election, according to state Attorney General Dana Nessel.  Kathy Funk, who was running in 2020 as a Democrat for reelection as Flint Township clerk, also was charged with misconduct in office, Nessel said.  The charges, which are both felonies, each carry a maximum sentence of five years in prison upon conviction.  Nessel alleged that Funk purposely broke a seal on a container for ballots so that the votes couldn't be totaled during an anticipated recount.  She narrowly won reelection in the unofficial count, the attorney general's office said.  "Election officials must uphold the integrity of their positions.  Those who abuse that commitment undermine the very foundation of our democracy," Nessel, a Democrat, said in a Twitter response to a ClickonDetroit report.

Mike Lindell seeks access to secret voting machine report.  MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell hopes to get his hands on an unredacted copy of a secret report detailing alleged vulnerabilities in Dominion Voting Systems equipment, machinery he claims was hacked during the 2020 election.  Attorneys for Lindell shared with the Washington Examiner two filings submitted this month in federal court in Georgia, where there is a long-running lawsuit seeking to get the state to ditch electronic voting machines for hand-marked paper ballots.  Although Lindell is not directly involved in that case, his lawyers argue an assessment done for the plaintiffs by J. Alex Halderman, a computer science professor at the University of Michigan, will help in their fight against Dominion's $1.3 billion defamation suit against MyPillow and Lindell.

Two Colorado County Clerks Sue Secretary of State Jena Griswold.  Two Colorado County Clerks have the data that could end crooked Secretary of State Jena Griswold's career.  The two Republican County Clerks — Elbert County Clerk Dallas Schroeder and Douglas County Clerk Merlin Klotz asked the court on Friday to allow them to compare the data they saved from the 2020 elections to the servers after Secretary of State Griswold altered the machines.  Griswold does not want anyone to examine the voting machines after she had them worked on for some reason?  It is interesting how Democrats have fought EVERY SINGLE audit into the 2020 election?

Florida lawmakers pass first-of-its-kind elections police force:  Office of Election Crimes and Security.  A day after the Florida Senate triggered leftists by passing the Parental Rights in Education bill, the members of the Florida House followed suit by passing their own triggering bill.  Passed in the House on Wednesday, S.B. 524 will create a "15-person Office of Election Crimes and Security within the Department of State" to essentially serve as an election police unit, according to Florida Politics.  The new office will reportedly investigate voter fraud complaints, increase "the penalties on organizations that violate election registration laws from $1,000 to $50,000" and ask "supervisors of elections to maintain voter roll lists annually instead of every two years."  If signed into law by Gov. Ron DeSantis — the bill already passed through the Senate last week — Florida will become the first state in the country to boast its own election fraud police unit.

Pennsylvania's Ballot Battle Should Rattle GOP.  As Pennsylvania's acting secretary of state, Leigh Chapman oversees professional boxing, kickboxing, and wrestling.  But those are hardly the most contentious items on her docket.  As the Keystone State's chief elections officer, Chapman is embroiled in a knock-down, drag-out fight over ballot integrity that has Democrats and Republicans pounding each other sillier than 12th-round rivals.  Chapman and other Democrats consider mass mail-in ballots more precious than the world heavyweight championship.  So, they argued Tuesday before Pennsylvania's Supreme Court.  Pennsylvania's top jurists — five appointed by Democrats, two by Republicans — heard Democrats appeal a lower court ruling Feb. 4 that found no-excuse, mail-in ballots unconstitutional under the supreme law of that land.  Ironically, Democrats defend a Republican-sponsored law.  Act 77 of 2019 created Pennsylvania's mail-in ballots.  That's the problem.

Judge rejects Fox News's bid to toss Smartmatic's $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit.  A judge has allowed a $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit filed by Smartmatic to proceed against Fox News.  Justice David Cohen of the New York Supreme Court nixed claims in the lawsuit against Fox News host Jeanine Pirro and "Kraken" attorney Sidney Powell but denied Fox News's motion to dismiss, determining that the plaintiffs "pleaded facts sufficient" to allow a jury to weigh whether the network acted with malice or reckless disregard for the truth.

Texas Elections Official [intends] to Resign After Thousands of Uncounted Ballots [were] Found.  The Harris County elections commissioner is resigning after 10,000 uncounted ballots for last week's primary were discovered, according to an announcement posted online on Monday [3/7/2022].  "Today I am submitting my resignation, effective July 1," Isabel Longoria said in the announcement.  "I think this date ensures that there is a presiding officer during the May and June elections and allows the election commission the time they need to find a replacement.  I remain committed to the office and its mission and hope to aid in defeating harmful rhetoric to ensure successful elections in the future."  It's not clear exactly why Longoria was resigning.  The Harris County Republican Party in Texas recently filed a lawsuit against the commissioner after the 10,000 uncounted ballots were discovered.  There were other issues with the primary election, including staffing problems, equipment issues, and longer-than-usual lines, according to local reports.

Texas elections official resigns for incompetence resulting in uncounted votes, Republican lawsuit.  A Texas county elections administrator resigned Tuesday [3/8/2022] after taking responsibility for an "oversight" that resulted in thousands of uncounted votes.  Isabel Longoria announced her intent to step down from her position as Harris County Elections Administrator during a meeting of the county commissioners.  Her post oversaw the city of Houston and the surrounding county, which happens to be Texas' most populous.  "Today I am submitting my resignation effective July 1," Longoria said, suggesting it allowed for oversight to continue through the May runoff elections and provided ample time for a replacement to be appointed.

The Editor says...
Ordinarily, if one acknowledges incompetence and resigns, it isn't necessary to give three months of advance notice.

County GOP calls for election administrator to be fired after 10,000 mail-in ballots are "found" days past election.  The first primary election day for the 2022 midterm elections did not go well in Texas, at least in the state's largest county.  Harris County Elections Administrator Isabel Longoria reported that 10,000 mail-in ballots were not properly counted in last week's primary election in Houston.  Calls for her to be fired continue to grow.  The position of Elections Administrator didn't exist in Harris County, the third-largest county in the country, until 2020.  The position was created by Harris County Commissioners Court on a 3-2 party-line vote.  At the time, Republicans criticized the move, arguing that it would create a new powerful role with no accountability to voters.  And, here we are.  Voters still don't have final numbers in some primary races one week later.

Tucker dissects 'shocking' new report on Wisconsin election, vows it's just the beginning.  Fox News host Tucker Carlson sat down with the head of the taxpayer-funded Wisconsin election probe, Michael Gableman, on Monday [3/7/2022] to discuss rampant voter fraud that allegedly took place in the 2020 presidential election via nursing homes, bribery, and funds doled out by Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg.  "So, you learn a lot about what the people in charge care about by what they won't allow you to say.  And at the very top of the list of the things you're not allowed to say... can literally get you silenced and censored for saying... is that there was voter fraud in the last election, but the fact is there was, and the deeper you dig, the more you find," Carlson opened the segment by noting.  "The Wisconsin office of Special Counsel has just released its second report on the subject and it's pretty unbelievable.  The report found, among other things, '100 percent voting rates in many nursing homes in Brown, Dane, Kenosha, Milwaukee, and Racine counties.'  Several of these nursing home residents that had voted had been previously declared incompetent," he continued and then introduced Gableman.  [Video clip]

Democrat Controlled Election in Texas' [Most Populous] County Fails to Count 10K Mail-In Ballots.  Election officials in Texas' largest county failed to count approximately 10,000 ballots by election day.  The Democrat-appointed election administrator for Harris County reported 6,000 of the ballots were cast in the Democratic Party primary and 4,000 in the Republican Party Primary.  "As we continue to run through the numerous checks and balances of the tallying process, we identified approximately 10,000 mail-in ballots (6,000 Democratic and 4,000 Republican) that were not added into the original Election Night count," Harris County Election Administrator Isabel Longoria said in a written statement obtained by Breitbart Texas.  "The oversight occurred between the hours of 1 and 4 a.m. as the political parties that make up the Central Count Committee were reviewing ballots."

Michigan failed to properly update voting rolls prior to 2020 election, audit finds.  Michigan voting rolls were not properly updated prior to the November 2020 election, according to an audit released Friday by the Michigan Office of the Auditor General.  The audit of the Bureau of Elections concludes Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson's office did not adhere to state election law by properly updating and reconciling Michigan's qualified voter roll.  This oversight, according to the audit, increased the risk of ineligible voters casting ballots.  Additionally, the audit identified discrepancies and inconsistencies in Benson's statements in defense of her department's internal post-election audits.  "The independent, nonpartisan audit released today shows that the work we have been doing in the Legislature to strengthen our elections is incredibly important," said Rep. Ann Bollin, R-Brighton Township, chairwoman of the House Elections and Ethics Committee, said in a statement.

The Press Quieted Down on Texas Voting Rights Suppression as the Conflicting Results Came In.  For a law that was supposed to trample minority voting rights, Texas minority candidates did rather well in the Texas primary.  It is a constant seen in the media cycles.  Hysterical claims are made for a lengthy period, and as those get proven out by data or by direct evidence — by reality — the hysterics evaporate and so does the story.  There is no flood of follow-up pieces on par with the tsunami of dire consequences in articles and columns.  The journos simply move on to the next promised nefarious event.  This is now playing out regarding the voting rights said to have been trampled in recent months.

Wisconsin Special Counsel Finds 'Widespread Election Fraud' In 2020 Nursing Homes.  "Rampant fraud and abuse occurred statewide at Wisconsin's nursing homes and other residential care facilities," according to the Office of Special Counsel's second interim report filed on March 1 with the Wisconsin Assembly.  That conclusion represents but one of the key findings of election irregularities detailed in the nearly 150-page report — a report that also confirms the conclusion of the Racine County Sheriff's office last fall that fraud occurred at nursing homes in Wisconsin.  Special Counsel Michael Gableman, the retired state Supreme Court justice appointed by the Wisconsin Assembly to investigate integrity concerns about the 2020 election, vetted more than 90 nursing homes in five different counties before concluding there was "widespread election fraud at Wisconsin nursing homes in November of 2020."

Here it is!  'Widespread election fraud' revealed in report.  President Donald Trump has said that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.  In fact, Joe Biden won by narrowly capturing victory in a list of swing states, and dozens of subsequent court cases were dismissed by judges over issues like standing, which mostly didn't address the actual claims involved.  But the establishment's defense to arguments over the legitimacy of the vote count always has been that there's been no "widespread election fraud" found.  Now there has.

Poll Worker Tells Republican Voters They Can Only Vote if They're Voting for Democrats.  As if the corruption of the Democrat party couldn't be any more blatant, people in Texas's largest county had their election plagued with errors, 'glitches' and Democrat operatives like the one in the video above literally telling Republicans they can only vote if they're voting for Democrats.  [Video clip]

More Bombshell Voter Fraud Information Drops From Wisconsin.  Special Counsel Michael Gableman dropped a bombshell report on voter fraud in Wisconsin.  It has now been exposed that voter fraud occurred in nursing home facilities during the 2020 election.  Here is the most despicable example of voter fraud:  [Tweet]

Wisconsin voting probe chief urges Legislature to consider decertifying 2020 election.  The former judge named to investigate Wisconsin's 2020 election declared Tuesday there is enough evidence of voting irregularities for the Legislature to consider decertifying the state's final results declaring Joe Biden the winner.  Retired Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Mike Gableman presented a 136-page report outlining the preliminary results of his probe to the state Assembly, offering evidence of several irregularities including that "most vulnerable" nursing home residents had been defrauded of their votes.  His conclusions followed two major court rulings that declared election rules changes enacted in 2020 — which allowed for ballot drop boxes to be used and voters to skip ID requirements by declaring themselves "indefinitely confined" by COVID — were illegal.  Those rulings call into question tens of thousands of ballots cast in a state where Biden won by less than 21,000 votes.

Wisconsin special counsel bombshell: 91 nursing homes had 95-100% voter turnout in 2020.  The special counsel investigating suspected irregularities in Wisconsin's 2020 election has found that 91 nursing homes in the counties of Milwaukee, Racine, Dane, Kenosha, and Brown had voter turnout rates ranging from 95% to a 100% in 2020 — as compared to overall nationwide participation rates of 67% in 2020 and 60% in 2016.  The nursing home data only reflects voting at the facilities that the special counsel "has been able to vet to this juncture," according to the report compiled by retired state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman for the state Assembly.  "There are more facilities in these counties, and after auditing the votes from other facilities, the above percentages may change."  Last November, the Racine County Sheriff's Office requested that the state attorney general investigate alleged illegal directives issued by the Wisconsin Election Commission to bypass the state's Special Voting Deputy process, under which the clerk of each municipality brings "enough ballots to each residential care facility to vote" and "assist the voters with the voting process."

Bribery, he says.  What are the chances that Mark Zuckerberg is going to be arrested?  I'm guessing zero.
Zuckerbucks declared 'bribery' by special counsel in Wisconsin.  Is the needle finally moving?  Seems the election takeover by Mark Zuckerberg's minions in Wisconsin has now been declared "bribery" by Wisconsin's special counsel, who was appointed to investigate the state's 2020 election. [...] Can you imagine what that must have been like for those officials affected — to see well heeled Zuckerbuck leftists from out of state waltz in and take over local election efforts, arbitrarily changing rules, redoing forms to manipulate results, telling elected officials to [stand down] because they were in charge here?  It would have been like a coup or terrorist attack, a clearly illegal takeover by outside dirtbags who otherwise belonged in jail.  That was hardly all.  The report focuses on the unequal treatment of voting districts, with urban districts getting virtually all the cash and the rest of the state getting nothing.

How South Carolina Took Millions in California Cash to Boost Vote-By-Mail.  South Carolina was not a swing state in November 2020.  Yet, millions of dollars from at least three private entities flowed into the state.  Plenty of reporting has been done on how Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, through the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL), flooded county election offices in battlegrounds with cash to subsidize election processes preferred by the outside group.  But in the Palmetto State, counties and even the state government had hands out for more than ZuckBucks — eventually totaling $6.5 million in grants available to be spent as late as Summer 2021.  South Carolina demonstrates how the desire to directly influence election administration by funding preferred election processes is a long-term programmatic goal for left-wing nonprofits.  And unless the practice is banned by legislation, it will continue.

Special Counsel Finds Zuckerberg's Election Millions Violated Bribery Laws in Wisconsin; Leaves it to Assembly to Decertify.  The special counsel who investigated the November 2020 election in Wisconsin, determined in a 135-page report Tuesday that the nearly $9 million in election grants provided to Center for Tech and Civic Life by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, violated a Wisconsin election bribery law.  Special Counsel Michael Gableman, a former Wisconsin Supreme Court justice, was tasked by Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos to investigate the election.  Gableman said in his report that it is up to the Wisconsin Assembly to decide whether the 2020 election results should be decertified.  "This Report is not intended to reanalyze the re-count that occurred in late 2020," he wrote.  "And the purpose of this Report is not to challenge certification of the Presidential election, though in Appendix II we do sketch how that might be done.  Any decisions in that vein must be made by the elected representatives of the people, that is, the Wisconsin Legislature.  Yet it is clear that Wisconsin election officials' unlawful conduct in the 2020 Presidential election casts grave doubt on Wisconsin's 2020 Presidential election certification."

The Wisconsin Office of Special Counsel interim report on the election.  [Thread Reader] ... has some real zingers on issues the press, cable news, and politicians have heretofore declared to have been thoroughly debunked.  Here's a summary of one of the preliminary findings regarding Dominion Voting:  "The Special Counsel reviewed extensive reporting of a Dominion machine failure event in another State.  The OSC was able to identify, through the reports of experts, that the failed machine recorded two anonymous and unauthorized access events from its VPN.  This means, contrary to what Dominion has publicly stated, that at least some machines had access to the internet on election night.  Shortly after the unauthorized access was recorded, the machine failed and was reset, wiping all voting history and forcing that election administrator to rely on unverifiable paper printouts from the failed machine."  And there's more.  Regarding another election system manufacturer, ES&S, the OSC found that several machines were equipped with a 4G wireless modem.  One municipality admitted its machines were connected to the internet on election night.  And ALL machines in Green Bay were connected on election night to a "secret, hidden WiFi access point at the [Grand] Hyatt Hotel, which was the location used by the City of Green Bay on the day of the 2020 Presidential election."  Even more disturbing was the finding that the "WiFi, machines, and ballots were controlled by a single individual who was not a government employee, but an agent of a special interest group operating in Wisconsin."

Wisconsin probe finds 2020 election riddled with nursing home voting fraud.  Intercepted ballots, forged signatures and questionably high voting rates plagued Wisconsin's nursing homes and other long-term care facilities during the 2020 presidential election, a state-appointed investigator said.  In light of the findings, the investigator said, the ballots from those facilities should be audited.  The special counsel's report was issued Tuesday after an examination of 2020 election integrity.  It said Wisconsin officials ditched legal requirements for supervising nursing home ballots during the pandemic, encouraging widespread voter fraud.

How the Left Upended Our Election Laws in 2020.  The integrity of our elections is under assault from Democrats in Washington and left-wing forces across America.  Using the pretext of COVID, a web of well-funded organizations, working with Democrat lawmakers and friendly judges, systematically changed state election laws in 2020.  Cleta Mitchell, who has spent a lifetime fighting for free and fair elections, is calling out the left's tactics and encouraging Americans to take an active role in their local elections.  Mitchell, a senior legal fellow at the Conservative Partnership Institute, leads the Election Integrity Network and hosts a podcast, "Who's Counting?"

Systemic Voting Issues In Pennsylvania County Even More Extensive Than Previously Known.  The video (and audio) hits just keep on coming from Delaware County, Pennsylvania, where a whistleblower secretly taped the aftermath of the chaos from the 2020 presidential election.  Two recent recordings exclusively obtained by The Federalist from a source with knowledge of the recordings provide further evidence that systemic problems plague the large Pennsylvania county.  The newest recordings provide some of the frankest discussion on how bad the behind-the-scenes situation was, with one election worker describing a part of the post-election situation as "abominable" and the attempt to do the impossible — reconcile some precincts' voter sheets — as "a nightmare."  The whistleblower, Regina Miller, began recording conversations involving Delaware County officials after she became concerned with what she saw as a contract worker assisting election employees.  A source familiar with the videos explained that Miller made the recordings as election workers scrambled to find — and in some cases create — documentation in response to a "Right to Know" request that sought copies of the paperwork that would confirm the accuracy of the vote tallies certified for the 2020 election.

Against All Odds, The Real Findings of the Arizona Senate Audit of Maricopa County's Conduct of the 2020 General Election.  When Arizona's Senate President Karen Fann's office received numerous reports of potential voting irregularities from Maricopa County voters after the 2020 election, she took a strong leadership role to investigate, identify and fix reported problems. [...] As the leader of the decision to audit Maricopa County's 2020 election, Fann fought pushback from the majority Republican Board of Supervisors and constant attack by the national and state liberal media.  But the results of the audit report she insisted must be conducted revealed thousands of errors, irregularities, illegal votes, maladministration, sloppiness, and votes cast and counted in violation of state law.  The audit findings are shocking.  In Arizona in 2020, Joe Biden bested Donald Trump by only 10,457 votes.  The Senate audit found 23,444 ballots were from "bad" addresses.  More than 9,000 ballots were returned to election offices than were received by voters, and 5,295 voters appear to have voted in multiple counties.  Among other problems, mistakes and failures to adhere to the Arizona election code.  All totaled, Fann and her audit team found more than 49,500 cases of potential unlawful ballots or fraud — nearly four hundred percent of the vote differential between the two presidential candidates.

Judicial Watch Settles North Carolina Voter Roll Lawsuit After State Removes Over 430,000 Inactive Names From Rolls.  Another huge win for Judicial Watch.  Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch on Thursday announced it settled its lawsuit against North Carolina after it removed over 430,000 inactive names from voter rolls.  Recall, Judicial Watch successfully sued California, Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana and forced them to clean up their dirty voter rolls.

Special Counsel Finds Mark Zuckerberg's Election Money Violated Wisconsin Bribery Laws.  Nearly $9 million in Zuckerberg grant funds directed solely to five Democratic strongholds in Wisconsin violated the state's election code's prohibition on bribery.  That conclusion represents but one of the many troubling findings detailed in the report submitted today by a state-appointed special counsel to the Wisconsin Assembly.  Last August, Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos authorized the Office of Special Counsel, headed by retired state Supreme Court justice Michael Gableman, to investigate concerns about election integrity and the 2020 election.  Gableman delivered an interim report to the state assembly on November 10, 2021. Earlier today, the special counsel provided a second interim report to the state legislative body, noting the report "is final in the sense that it provides a list of recommendations with time for the Legislature to act before the close of its session in March."

Wisconsin Special Counsel Implicates Obama Campaign Manager David Plouffe and ERIC's David Becker in Wisconsin Election Fraud Investigation.  This morning the Wisconsin Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections held an informational hearing on the Gableman 2020 Election Report featuring invited speakers Special Councsel and Former Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman and Attorney Eric Kaardal.  Justice Gableman played video of several victims of voter theft.  Several brave Wisconsin families reached out to Gableman and his committee after they discovered someone had voted for their loved one who is in a nursing home.  This happened all over Wisconsin.

Documents and Testimonies Reveal Massive Fraud in 2020 Election in Wisconsin, Special Counsel Calls for Decertification.  It looks like Obama, Zuckerberg, Soros, and many many Democrats were all engaged in rigging the 2020 election in order to get the puppet Fake Pres.  Joe Biden in office.  Now we know with 100% certainty that Joe Biden not only lost in Wisconsin, Georgia and Arizona, but he, Obama, Zuckerberg, Soros and many others were all linked to the crime of the century.  Special counsel Michael Gableman has officially called for the decertification of the 2020 election in Wisconsin after revealing irrefutable evidence showing it was in fact rigged by 'Zuck Bucks' and Obama's campaign manager, along with Biden and Soros's people.  [Video clip]

Arizona woman sentenced for voting in dead father's name.  An Arizona woman was sentenced Monday to probation after admitting she illegally cast a mail-in ballot in her dead father's name.  Marcia Johnson, 70, cast her own ballot and one for her father, Kenneth Johnson, who had died in April 2012.  His name had remained on the state's voter rolls and election officials mailed ballots each election to his post office box.

Arizona Senate study estimates 200k ballots [were] counted in 2020 with mismatched signatures.  A study of Maricopa County's mail ballots in Arizona's 2020 presidential election estimates that more than 200,000 ballots with mismatched signatures were counted without being reviewed, or "cured" — more than eight times the 25,000 signature mismatches requiring curing acknowledged by the county.  Commissioned by the Arizona State Senate, the signature verification pilot study was conducted by Shiva Ayyadurai's Election Systems Integrity Institute, which released its final report to the public on Tuesday.  Ayyadurai is an engineer and entrpreneur with four degrees from MIT who bills himself as the inventor of email, a claim which critics have alleged is exaggerated.  Of the 1,911,918 early voting mail ballots that Maricopa County received and counted in the 2020 presidential election, the county reported that 25,000, or 1.3%, had signature mismatches that required curing, but only 587 (2.3%) of those were confirmed mismatched signatures.

Dallas County Democrats win bid to keep polls open longer after winter closures.  Polling locations in Dallas County will stay open longer Friday after a group of Democratic candidates requested a temporary restraining order because several sites were closed this week for winter weather.  Those locations will remain open until 10 p.m. instead of closing at 7 p.m., after a judge's ruling.  Andrew Sommerman, a candidate for county Commissioners Court District 2, filed the request on behalf of himself and four other candidates for judge:  Maria Aceves, Dan Patterson, Dominique Torres Williams and Nancy Mulder.  The Dallas County Democratic Party also joined the filing.

'Those Who Make Peaceful Revolution Impossible Will Make Violent Revolution Inevitable'.  Every single American with a functioning brain knows that Donald Trump won the election in 2020 and that everyone from Mark Zuckerberg to the mainstream media to the Democrat party to Never Trumper "conservatives" conspired to steal it.  And they did. [...] Beyond the personal attacks, the left used COVID as a cover for stealing the 2020 election.  From near-universal mail-in balloting to unconstitutional voting rule changes to outside money using COVID as a cover to infiltrate voting bureaucracies, COVID was the fig leaf behind which Democrats could hide as they ran their coup d'état.  Then, in the midst of the COVID hysteria, violent riots broke out across the country in the summer of 2020.  This too was an opportunity to help destroy Trump and the left took full advantage of it; indeed, in many cases, outright supporting it.

Vermont Towns Open Voting to Foreign Nationals, Offering Ballots in Foreign Languages.  A pair of Vermont towns are ready for their first local elections where foreign nationals will be allowed to vote, even offering ballots in foreign languages.  Montpelier, the state's capital, and Winooski, located just outside of Burlington, are set to hold local elections where, for the first time, foreign nationals will be able to vote.  In Montpelier, city officials said one foreign national has registered to vote while about eight foreign nationals have registered in Winooski.  In addition, Winooski is ensuring that non-English speaking foreign nationals have ballots in their native languages and is doing community outreach to get as many foreign nationals registered to vote as possible.

Lady Failing at Filling Form Deemed Voter Suppression in Texas By ABC.  Early voting in Texas has been going on for a week but Monday's [2/21/2022] Good Morning America on ABC highlighted a supposed voter suppression case where they complained it took the woman "28 days" to cast her ballot.  It was the case of Pam Gaskin, the same woman CNN highlighted last week with the same convoluted, conflicting, and now-evolving story about how Republicans were suppressing her right to vote because she filled out the application incorrectly.  "[M]ore than a dozen states across the country have already passed laws making it tougher for people to vote.  But we're getting the test of that in Texas where one voter says it took her 28 days before she could finally cast her ballot," announced congressional correspondent Rachel Scott at that top of the segment while failing to disclose Gaskin's history as an elections activist, which she bragged about on CNN.  Complete with emotional music in the background, Scott told the story of Gaskin and her husband (who wasn't mentioned in the CNN report): [...]

The Editor says...
And of course the alleged victim in this case is black.  The news media, as far as I know, has never pointed to an eligible white person who was unable to vote.  This says something about the news media's attitude toward blacks.

Doctrine Touting State Legislature Supremacy in Elections Administration Gains Traction in Court Cases.  A constitutional doctrine resuscitated during legal challenges before the U.S. Supreme Court in the wake of Florida's disputed 2000 election is finding traction in post-2020 election integrity lawsuits. [...] The doctrine is rooted in parts of two articles of the U.S. Constitution.  Article I declares state legislatures have authority to determine "times, places and manners of holding elections for Senators and Representatives."  Article II states "each state shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors" in presidential and vice-presidential elections.  The doctrine has been a buzz among conservatives since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a Florida Supreme Court ruling that cited "suffrage principles" in the state's Constitution to allow manual recounts in the disputed 2000 election.  In throwing out the ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court determined that when the state legislature enacted the law governing presidential electors, it was "not acting solely under the authority given it by the people of the state, but by virtue of a direct grant of authority made under Article II of the United States Constitution."

In Texas, New Law Is Stopping the Steal.  Voter integrity is essential.  It's popular.  It's why for all the Democrats' yelling about how this, that, and the other is racist regarding new voter laws, these laws aren't going anywhere. [...] The high rejection rate should raise eyebrows.  How many invalid ballots were counted in 2020?  Who knows?  Democrats have destroyed that evidence, but the real steal centered on the battleground states where Democratic secretaries of state unilaterally and illegally altered the voting laws without the consent of the state legislatures.  Michigan and Pennsylvania specifically saw this occur in 2020.  Are we shocked to learn that the state legislatures there are majority Republican?  No way would these tweaks be passed, so Democrats did what they do best — cheat.

Systemic Voting Issues In Pennsylvania County Even More Extensive Than Previously Known.  The video (and audio) hits just keep on coming from Delaware County, Pennsylvania, where a whistleblower secretly taped the aftermath of the chaos from the 2020 presidential election.  Two recent recordings exclusively obtained by The Federalist from a source with knowledge of the recordings provide further evidence that systemic problems plague the large Pennsylvania county.  The newest recordings provide some of the frankest discussion on how bad the behind-the-scenes situation was, with one election worker describing a part of the post-election situation as "abominable" and the attempt to do the impossible — reconcile some precincts' voter sheets — as "a nightmare."  The whistleblower, Regina Miller, began recording conversations involving Delaware County officials after she became concerned with what she saw as a contract worker assisting election employees.  A source familiar with the videos explained that Miller made the recordings as election workers scrambled to find — and in some cases create — documentation in response to a "Right to Know" request that sought copies of the paperwork that would confirm the accuracy of the vote tallies certified for the 2020 election.

Fighting the Good Fight for Election Integrity in Franklin, Tennessee.  It wasn't about Donald Trump.  It was about saving our Republic, the speakers kept repeating, and that was true.  The perspective at the Election Integrity Symposium given by Tennessee Stands in Franklin, Tennessee, on Thursday evening was aimed at the future, at making sure we had transparent and fair elections in our country going forward — something we arguably, and in a way astonishingly, never have had.  Just who did win, for example, the presidential election of 1960 (Nixon versus JFK)?  In truth, nobody knows for sure, to this day.  Bizarre as it sounds, most of our elections seem to a great degree decided by news media that "call" the elections at certain points from their "decision rooms."  Remember the consternation when Fox "called" Arizona for Biden?  Many doubt to this day the accuracy of that "decision."

Memphis Black Lives Matter Founder Sentenced to 6 Years for Illegally Voting.  A Black Lives Matter organizer in Memphis was sentenced to prison after she was convicted for illegally registering to vote.  Pamela Moses, described by some outlets as the founder of a BLM chapter in Memphis, was sentenced to six years in prison last week after she was convicted in November 2021 for illegally registering to vote in Tennessee, according to prosecutors.  Moses had felony convictions in 2015, making her ineligible to register to vote.  Judge Mark Ward, while handing down her prison sentence, accused her of making false statements to the probation department to register to vote.  "You tricked the probation department into giving you documents saying you were off probation," Ward said in court last week.  "After you were convicted of a felony in 2015, you voted six times as a convicted felon."

It's time for Democrats to accept it.  GOP voting reforms won't hinder access to the ballot.  Democrats have been caterwauling about Republican-backed changes to state voting laws, often characterizing them as an assault on democracy.  A new analysis by a respected political scientist shows how specious those claims really are.  The analysis, written by Emory professor Alan I. Abramowitz for Sabato's Crystal Ball at the University of Virginia, examined key elements of voting laws that GOP state legislatures have targeted, such as early in-person voting, the use of drop boxes for mail ballots and voter ID requirements.  His study attempted to see if differences between states with respect to those items, among others, had a measurable effect on turnout or President Biden's margins in those states.

Can the Democrats Undermine the Midterms?  In late January, President Biden told a national TV audience that he was not prepared to say that the coming midterm elections would be legitimate.  This startling admission was quickly walked back, but it shone a white-hot spotlight on Democrat efforts in Congress to federalize elections.  The 2022 election promises to be one of significant change in the dynamic in Washington D.C. despite the efforts of Democrats to do more than just cast doubts on the election's integrity.  The Democrats have a demonstrated history of trying to make elections as one-sided as possible and thus enthrone themselves for perpetuity as they have done in cities throughout the country.  The Democrats and their allies in Big Tech and the media regularly work to make this happen by subverting election integrity laws like requiring an ID, pushing for unregulated and unmonitored mail-in voting, providing support for one-sided ballot harvesting initiatives, repealing or fighting laws intended to allow states to revise voter rolls, and pouring enormous sums of money into Democrat districts to pay for election officials and ballot drop boxes.

Democrat Group Sues to Strike Down GOP Redistricting Plan in Kansas.  Just four days after the Republican-controlled Kansas legislature approved the state's 2022 congressional reapportionment map, Democrats are asking a county court to strike it down.  The complaint was filed on Feb. 14 in Wyandotte County District Court by attorneys from the Grissom Miller Law Firm of Kansas City, Missouri, and the Elias Law Group of Washington D.C. on behalf of several Kansas residents and activist group Loud Light.  The Elias Law Group is headed by Democrat election lawyer and strategist Marc Elias, who served as attorney for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.  Elias is widely credited for engineering election law changes in key swing states that helped Democrats in the 2020 election, and he has challenged redistricting plans in Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, and other states in the 2022 election cycle.

Michigan secretary of state requests inquiry into possible voting equipment breach.  Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson asked the state's attorney general and state police to investigate reports an "unnamed third party" gained unauthorized access to voting technology in one county.  At least one third party allegedly gained access to tabulation machines and data drives in Richfield Township and Roscommon County, Benson's office said in a statement Thursday.  If it did, the equipment would be required to be replaced with taxpayer's money, her statement warned.

Is the Biden Admin Trying to Hide a Report on Dominion Voting Systems?  The Biden administration doesn't want a judge to release a report on Dominion Voting Systems equipment in Georgia, claiming that doing so would "threaten election security," Just The News reports.  The report was written by the Director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, J. Alex Halderman.  Halderman was previously profiled in a video by the New York Times back in 2018 when he demonstrated to a group of students how easy it would be to rig a voting machine.  In the 2018 video, Halderman demonstrated how voting machines are "dangerous" and "obsolete" by holding a mock election with University of Michigan students.  Halderman had previously testified before Congress, warning that computerized voting is "vulnerable to sabotage" and "cyberattacks that could change votes."

Arizona Scandal:  House Speaker Bowers Uses Technical Maneuver to Ensure Defeat of Sweeping Election Integrity Bill.  State Rep. John Fillmore (R-Apache Junction) introduced one of the most sweeping election integrity bills this session, but it appears all but doomed due to a rare procedural maneuver deliberately made to stop it by House Speaker Rusty Bowers (R-Mesa). Bowers scheduled all 12 House committees to hear HB 2596, basically guaranteeing it will never reach the floor since some of the committees won't bother to hear it.  "Canvass Queen" Liz Harris, so named after conducting an 11-month long independent grassroots audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County, told The Arizona Sun Times she was extremely disappointed Bowers did this considering she is certain there was massive fraud.  "From the canvassing I've done, this is what I realized needs to happen," she said.  She explained that other election integrity legislation is composed of single-issue bills which will only fix one area in the elections process, allowing fraud to move to other areas.

New Texas voting rules causing high number of ballot rejections.  Election supervisors in Texas have warned that new stricter voter ID requirements ahead of next month's state governor's primary have already resulted in an uncharacteristically high number of ballot rejections.  Voting rights activists have expressed fears that new laws making access to the vote more difficult — that have been passed in many states across the US by Republicans — will impact Democrat-leaning voters of color.  According to officials in media reports, as many as 40% of roughly 3,600 returned ballots in Harris county, Texas' most populous county that incorporates Houston, have lacked the identification number required under Senate Bill 1, a Republican-sponsored bill designed to tie voters to valid IDs.

The Editor says...
The new laws in Texas are designed to make it more difficult for people to vote twice, or to vote fraudulently, or to vote from the grave, or to vote in more than one precinct, or to vote on behalf of someone else. If you are the person you claim to be, when you show up at a polling place, the new laws will not affect you at all.  Any assertion (such as the one above) that the new laws are intended to make it more difficult for minorities to vote are vicious canards.

No More Fraud Boxes — Big Ruling By Wisconsin Supreme Court.  History shows the reality that former President Donald J. Trump was crushing the 2020 elections, especially in several swing states, well at least until millions of mystery ballots started appearing at ballot processing facilities around 4 AM in PA, WI, GA, AZ, MI.  Universal mail-in ballots plus Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's non-profits unmonitored drop boxes were identified as 2 of the sources used by the left to insert the illegal votes.  The Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) issued memos to Wisconsin clerks in March and August of 2020 encouraging their use, stating that absentee ballots do not need to be mailed by the voter or delivered by the voter, in person, to the municipal clerk but instead could be dropped into a dropbox.  According to WEC, ballot drop boxes can be unstaffed, temporary, or permanent.

RNC Sues Key Pennsylvania County for Absentee Ballot Transparency.  The Republican National Committee (RNC) is suing Bucks County, Pennsylvania, to push for more transparency when it comes to the county's processes for counting absentee ballots, Breitbart News has learned exclusively.  The lawsuit represents an escalation by the GOP in an effort to establish uniformity in the Keystone State when it comes to the process of absentee ballot counting, with several counties in the state still resisting transparency and reform efforts.

Biden Administration Urges Court Not to Allow Release of 'Secret Report' on Dominion Voting Machines.  Top officials at a U.S. federal cybersecurity agency are urging a judge not to authorize at this time the release of a report that analyzes Dominion Voting Systems equipment in Georgia, arguing doing so could assist hackers trying to "undermine election security."  The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) was recently provided an unredacted copy of the report, which was prepared by J. Alex Halderman, director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society.  The report discusses "potential vulnerabilities in Dominion ImageCast X ballot marking devices," or electronic voting devices, according to the government.  While CISA supports public disclosure of any vulnerabilities and associated mitigation measures with election equipment, allowing the release of the report at this point "increases the risk that malicious actors may be able to exploit any vulnerabilities and threaten election security," government lawyers said in a Feb. 10 filing in the case.

Feds oppose immediate release of voting-machines security report.  A federal cybersecurity agency is reviewing a report that alleges security vulnerabilities in voting machines used by Georgia and other states and says the document shouldn't be made public until the agency has had time to assess and mitigate potential risks.  The report has been under seal since July in federal court in Atlanta, part of a long-running lawsuit challenging Georgia's voting machines.  Its author, J. Alex Halderman, said in sworn declarations filed publicly with the court that he examined the Dominion Voting Systems machines for 12 weeks and identified "multiple severe security flaws" that would allow bad actors to install malicious software.

Feds warn against untimely release of Georgia voting machine 'secret report'.  A federal agency is reviewing a so-called secret report on alleged vulnerabilities in Georgia's voting equipment.  The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, an arm of the Homeland Security Department, is assessing the fresh doubts being cast on the security of Dominion Voting Systems and is asking a judge to hold off on ordering the release of the report authored by Alex Halderman, a computer science professor at the University of Michigan, which could have implications for election technology used in states across the country.  "Such premature disclosure increases the risk that malicious actors may be able to exploit any vulnerabilities and threaten election security," the CISA said in a court filing Thursday.  Halderman, an expert for plaintiffs in a long-running lawsuit seeking to get Georgia to ditch electronic voting machines in favor of hand-marked paper ballots, was granted access to Dominion voting equipment in Fulton County for 12 weeks and produced a 25,000-word "secret report" that has been filed under seal, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

If DC Fears Trump, He Deserves Four More Years.  A helpless public watched in real time as the ruling class used the ruse of a COVID-1984 pandemic to usher in anonymous and unsecured mass mail-in balloting in battleground states (often in explicit violation of state statutory law) just in time for the 2020 election.  When that same helpless public found it unfathomably difficult to believe that a sitting president could win over ten million new votes during re-election yet somehow still lose (a feat never before seen in American history, save for President Grover Cleveland, who lost re-election in 1888 amid allegations of fraud against his opponent, Benjamin Harrison, and who subsequently returned to the White House four years later in a landslide) or that a lifetime Washington relic who campaigned from his basement in Delaware could legitimately receive more votes than Obama, Trump, or any other past president with an energetic and loyal army of voters, those doubters were ridiculed as "sore losers" and "conspiracy theorists."

What Are They Hiding?  Democrats Argue Voting Machines Too Fragile to Inspect — If Investigators Touch Them They WIll Need to Be Replaced.  Joe Biden got 81 million votes.  It really happened.  Democrats and their media lackeys are so certain of this that they will not allow anyone to inspect the voting machines.  In Arizona Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs argued that Maricopa County would be forced to replace their Dominion voting machines if they were inspected by investigators.  The machines were so delicate that they can never be audited. [...] In Pennsylvania the state Supreme Court of liberal activists stepped in at the last minute and delayed an inspection of the Fulton County, Pennsylvania voting machines.  The audit is still delayed by the state Supreme Court.  Democrats are absolutely terrified that a reputable audit team may inspect the county's Dominion voting machines.  And in Michigan the radical Attorney General hid the audit of the Dominion machines in Antrim County where 6,000 votes were mysteriously flipped from Trump to Joe Biden.

Stacey Abrams and Voter Suppression.  Most conservatives are well aware of the Democrat's Alinsky tactic of accusing Republicans of whatever criminal, immoral, or unethical activities they themselves are engaged in.  [Numerous examples omitted for brevity.]  But there's a variation of Alinsky's projection ploy that's even more insidious:  accuse Republicans who dare secure the ballot box against illegal votes of engaging in voter suppression.  The Democrat's field general this tactic is their former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.  Abrams lost a close 2018 election to Brian Kemp and promptly accused Kemp of suppressing the black vote despite the fact that blacks voted in significantly higher percentages than whites.  She continues, without evidence, to insist that that election was stolen from her and the same Democrats who are now accusing Trump of threatening our democracy still claim she is the rightful governor of Georgia.  Abrams, who was neck deep in tax and credit card debt, has turned her voter suppression scam into a lucrative position as head of a non-profit, the ironically named Fair Fight Action, that raked in tens of millions from leftist billionaires and major corporations terrified of crossing the woke mob.

The United States Government Is "Desperate to Hide the Truth".  The institutions of the United States government cannot ever admit:
  [#1]   What they did in the 2016 election with illegal campaign surveillance of political opposition.  How they weaponized the administrative state.  How the intelligence agencies within the executive branch coordinated with legislative branch intelligence oversight (SSCI) and Gang of Eight members to target, then isolate, marginalize and remove Donald J Trump.  How the executive and legislative branches then manipulated the judicial branch to support their activity (FISA Courts).
  [#2]   That Robert Mueller's appointment was intended exclusively to cover up what took place in 2016; then to assist the effort in outlasting any internal review until Trump could be removed.  The entire DC establishment know this to be true.  Not a single voice ever discusses it publicly.  (Why?)

Whistleblower Videos Show Systemic Issues With Pennsylvania Elections.  According to a new whistleblower video obtained by The Federalist, 80 percent of Delaware County, Pennsylvania precincts lacked a valid chain of custody for the provisional ballots cast in the November 2020 election.  This video and two others just obtained by The Federalist provide further evidence that, while officials continue to deny that irregularities occurred during the last presidential election, there were widespread violations of the election code in the large Pennsylvania county, followed by efforts to cover up those problems.  Regina Miller, a contract worker assisting Delaware County officials, secretly filmed the videos as she helped election employees gather material in response to a "Right to Know Request" that sought documentation to confirm the election results certified by the county.

Group Sues Louisiana for Denying Access to Voter Files After State Rebukes Democrat-Dominated Data Service.  An electoral integrity group is suing Louisiana in federal court for refusing to allow inspection of voter list maintenance records, including information the state receives from the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC), a controversial data-matching service accused of inaccuracy.  Republican Kyle Ardoin, Louisiana's secretary of state, is violating the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) by not allowing the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) access to the voter documents, including data provided by ERIC, according to PILF.  PILF, a nonprofit, describes itself as "the nation's only public interest law firm dedicated wholly to election integrity."  PILF "exists to assist states and others to aid the cause of election integrity and fight against lawlessness in American elections."

And the Band Played On.  The political landscape of this current pandemic has no precedent.  From the outset, doors were inexplicably shut to known treatments and therapies and critical surgeries were sidelined while thousands died.  A citizenry panicked by sniffles and coughs lined up for imprecise testing that inflated cases by misdiagnosing and assimilating common seasonal ailments into the running COVID tally. [...] COVID appeared just in time for the 2020 presidential campaign.  Sensing favorable circumstances, Democrats turned polling sites into super spreaders and went to work clogging state and federal courts with hundreds of lawsuits challenging longstanding state voting protocols.  They blocked the cleansing of rolls that resurrected the dead to vote, mailed out tens of millions of unsolicited paper ballots, extended ballot counting for days, and carried out vote dumps in the dead of Election Night that created arithmetically impossible tallies and reversed political fortunes.  This was the shadow campaign that shielded a basement candidate who couldn't be trusted in public without a chaperone and an audio kill switch.

Activist who founded Black Lives Matter Memphis is sentenced to six years in prison for illegally voting.  The founder of Black Lives Matter Memphis has been sentenced to six years in prison for illegally registering to vote after pleading guilty to felonies in 2015.  Pamela Moses, 44, voted illegally six times since she pleaded guilty to evidence tampering, forgery, perjury, stalking and theft under $500, seven years ago.  The activist is now claiming she was unaware she was still on probation, which lasted seven years, and believed her voting rights were reinstated in 2019.  'I did not falsify anything.  All I did was try to get my rights to vote back the way the people at the election commission told me and the way the clerk did,' she said at her sentencing hearing on January 26.

Supreme Court sides with GOP in Alabama election map case.  The Supreme Court on Monday [2/7/2022] put on hold a lower court ruling that Alabama must draw new congressional districts before the 2022 elections, boosting Republican chances to hold six of the state's seven seats in the House of Representatives.  The court's action, by a 5-4 vote, means the upcoming elections will be conducted under a map drawn by Alabama's Republican-controlled legislature that contains one majority-Black district, represented by a Black Democrat, in a state in which more than a quarter of the population is Black.

The Democrat Plan to Steal the 2022 Election Was Built Around Obama's Corrupt AG's Nationwide Redistricting Effort Knowing Republicans Would Fold.  America is in a terrible position.  Lying corrupt Obama holdovers are running the country based on a stolen election with millions of invalid ballots.  They get away with what they can because it seems that only a few Republicans are pushing back.  The Democrats expect to win the 2022 midterms.  You see this in everything they do.  We were warned.  If they got away with stealing the 2020 Election they weren't going to stop, they never will.  On top of this, as they perfect their cheating ways with elections, they contaminated the census by not allowing for the census to record only those in the country legally, and now they use these fraudulent results to determine the number of congressional seats in each state.  Their plan was to use lawfare to steal more seats across the country in redistricting efforts while Republicans cower or pretend they don't see what's going on.

Has the US Government Declared War on Its Citizens?  We have hundred-million-dollar lotteries in America that sell tickets at every hole-in-the-wall gas station from the middle of the Nevada desert to the remote Maine wilderness, and when winning jackpot numbers come up, winning ticket-holders are identified almost immediately.  Yet a national political election arrives, and it takes days, if not weeks, for the nation to discover the winner.  Only third-world banana republics and the United States of America conduct elections with so few identification requirements for voters and so few security protocols for safeguarding ballots.  The logical result is that only 20% of Americans are "very confident" that election outcomes are legitimate.  A reasonable person might expect national politicians to comprehend the widely held belief that vote fraud is prevalent as a debilitating vulnerability for both American national security and domestic political stability.  Government officials, however, are more offended by Americans questioning election outcomes than they are by the elimination of secret ballots, the transformation of voting day into voting season, the imposition of mass mail-in balloting by judicial fiat, the construction of parking lot drop boxes for anonymous and unsecured ballot-stuffing, late-night ballot dumps, private contractors hired by tech companies to manipulate elections, or truckloads of votes simply disappearing.

Washington State Governor's Plot to Criminalize Election Fraud Complaints Moves Forward.  In 2020, Democrat governors and their underlings used COVID-19 as the excuse to change election laws, many times using emergency powers sans legislature, expand mail-in balloting, and remove what few security measures remained, such as signature matching.  Recently, a state court ruled that Pennsylvania election changes by fiat were illegal under the state constitution.  These aren't lies.  They happened.  They may have changed the results of the election.  The take over of local elections offices by Mark Zuckerberg's "Zuck Bucks" also continues to fuel complaints.  But Washington's Gov. Inslee believes people seeking or holding elective office who complain about election chicanery should be punished for holding those wrong-thoughts.  They should be silenced and maybe even jailed for up to a year.  In Inslee's bill, loudly complaining about election fraud that accused complainers knew was bogus, as adjudged by a "jury" according to the governor, could lead to violence.  The person who uttered the words should go to jail, he reasons.  Inslee has never said these words in response to the Antifa and BLM riots during the election of 2016 and 2017 to depose the democratically elected Donald Trump.

East Texas Democrat Official Pleads Guilty to Voter Fraud.  Four years after an East Texas Democrat won a close primary election, he admitted to illegal mail-ballot harvesting in the race.  But he won't face any jail time.  In fact, he's running for re-election.  Gregg County Commissioner Shannon Brown pleaded guilty this week to one count of misdemeanor voter fraud and was sentenced to a year of probation.  Brown was originally charged with 23 felonies.  In 2018, Brown edged out his Democrat primary opponent by just five votes.  Soon after, local officials announced a voter fraud complaint had been filed, alleging Brown's campaign had organized a scheme to illegally harvest mail-in ballots by falsely claiming voters had a disability.

J6 Hysteria Is How Media And Other Democrats Are Avoiding Accountability For Their Rigging Of The 2020 Election.  The 2020 presidential election was unlike any in American history. [...] But it is interesting and telling how little the media and other Democrats are willing to talk about efforts to rig the election.  With the exception of a single Time Magazine article admitting there was a "conspiracy" by a "a well-funded cabal of powerful people" who worked to "change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information," to create a "revolution in how people vote," corporate media have largely kept silent about or downplayed how the establishment secured its victory for their man Joe Biden.  Time's article didn't come out until February 4, 2021, but in the months prior to its publication, Republicans grew increasingly concerned that the rigging it described had, in fact, happened.

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America.  Highly respected Dinesh D'Souza, working together with Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote, just released a trailer to their new movie, "2,000 Mules," that shows the world exactly how the 2020 Presidential Election was Rigged and Stolen.  The movie exposes the lies of the Democrats, RINOs, and Fake News who say it was the "most secure election in history."  It was, perhaps, the least secure in history.  The ballot box was stuffed, and stuffed like never before — and it's all on video.  Ballots were trafficked and sold in a massive operation in each Swing State.

Black Americans Sue New York City for 'Racially Discriminatory' Policy Allowing Foreign Nationals to Vote.  Black Americans in New York City, New York, have filed a lawsuit against the city for giving municipal voting rights to nearly a million foreign nationals.  As Breitbart News has chronicled, Democrats on the 51-member New York City Council approved a plan last month that allows more than 800,000 foreign nationals with green cards, visas, and work permits the opportunity to vote in citywide elections so long as they have resided in the city for at least 30 consecutive days.  Now, four black Americans and New York City residents — Phyllis Coachman, Deroy Murdock, Katherine James, and Anthony Gilhuys — have filed suit with the help of the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF).

New Evidence Proves Democrats Stole Overseas Military Ballots from Michigan, Georgia and Now Arizona.  Yet more proof that Democrats are doing all they can to destroy the publics trust in the voting system.  Now we have evidence they even stole ballots from our military members who are stationed overseas in order to keep Trump from winning.  Paul Harris:  The UOCAVA is the Uniform Overseas Civilian Absentee Voting Act ballot.  That ballot is sent out to men and women who work overseas and the people who work overseas to get a chance to work in the election.  This is what a ballot looks like that goes out, an 11 1/2 X 19 ballot.  When I opened up a box of ballots this is what a ballot looks like that's a UOCAVA ballot.  You know what that is?  It's an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of copy paper.  Paul Harris continued:  "Did you all know that our ballots come back like this from our overseas people?  Did any of you know [this]?  It is such a sham that I had people everyday at my table taking pictures of these ballots that were scanned down.  It took my team three complete days to count all of the UOCAVA ballots. [...]"  [Video clip]

Election Fraud Deniers Will Have a Hard Time Shrugging Off This 'Never-Before-Seen Surveillance Video'.  It is still unknown how much fraud was carried out in the 2020 election.  But the narrative needs to end that the answer is "none."  Despite the widespread blanket denials from the mainstream media, surveillance video has bubbled up showing that 'mules' illicitly dumped ballots into Zuckerberg "drop boxes."  The film contains startling video evidence of "2,000 mules" dropping off what appears to be thousands of illicit ballots into the drop boxes.  The details of how the evidence was gathered is recounted by researcher Kanekoa on his Substack page.  "This week surveillance footage emerged of an illegal ballot harvesting operation that took place during the 2020 election," the article notes.  "True The Vote has spent the last year collecting more than 27 terabytes of geospatial and temporal data — a total of 10 trillion cell phone pings — between Oct. 1 and Nov. 6 in targeted areas in Georgia, Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Texas."

We Need A Sarbanes-Oxley Law For Voter Rolls.  Numbers mean things.  Public companies use numbers to convey the health, growth, and promise of their firm.  If their numbers are fake, don't reconcile, or have hidden data not conveyed to the investors, CEOs and CFOs can and do go to prison.  Why should election rolls meet a lesser standard?  Why do election rolls fail to reconcile internally?  Why do election rolls have hundreds to thousands of dead people or voters whose address is a church or RV park?  Why are citizens forced to pay $12,500, $30,000, or $5,000 for a single copy of their election roll?  Why do most states (likely all) have hundreds to thousands of "voters" on their rolls born on the same day before World War I?  Why do some states allow voters to use a prison as their mailing address?  Voter rolls must be given the same scrutiny as public companies' financial statements.  They are not — it's not even close.

3 Plead Out in California Election Fraud Case as Councilman's Trial Proceeds.  Three of six defendants have pleaded no contest to charges in an alleged voter fraud conspiracy in California that may have flipped an election hinging on one vote.  Los Angeles County Superior Court also will hold a hearing Wednesday in a separate civil case based on the same Compton city election to set a trial date.  In a June runoff election, Compton City Council member Isaac Galvan was reelected to the seat representing District 2, beating fellow Democrat Andre Spicer by 855 votes to 854 in the nonpartisan contest.  In August, prosecutors charged Galvan, 34, with election fraud and bribery.

Democratic Senators Release Draft Bill Changing Electoral Vote Count Rules.  Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Dick Durbin of Illinois, and Independent Maine Sen. Angus King released a bill on Tuesday that would change the process by which senators can object to electoral votes.  The Electoral Count Modernization Act raises the threshold necessary for members of Congress to sustain an objection to a state's electoral vote slate, from one representative and one senator to one-third of each chamber.  The proposal also limits the ability of members to object to an electoral slate by requiring them to explain why the slate "is not the valid certificate of identification of electors" or an elector is constitutionally ineligible to serve in that capacity.  The bill also pushes back the date by which states must certify their electoral slate, to allow for recounts and court challenges, and places responsibility for identifying the correct electors with the governor.

Pennsylvania Court Strikes Down Mail-In Voting Law As Unconstitutional.  On Friday [1/28/2022], a Pennsylvania court declared the state's statute authorizing no-excuse mail-in voting was unconstitutional.  Within hours, Pennsylvania officials filed a notice of appeal with the state Supreme Court, putting on hold the lower court decision and thereby leaving in place the vote-by-mail option until the state's high court rules.  With Pennsylvania Supreme Court justices elected on a partisan ticket and Democrats currently holding a 5-2 majority on the state's high court, Democrats are predicting the no-excuse mail-in voting law will be upheld.  That forecast seems accurate given the hyper-partisan approach to legal analysis seen since the 2020 election.  It's unfortunate because yesterday's opinion in McLinko v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania reached the proper conclusion as a matter of constitutional analysis and controlling precedent.  The McLinko case consisted of two lawsuits consolidated by the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court.  Both cases challenged the constitutionality of no-excuse mail-in voting.

Shocking Testimony Reveals Democrats Were Stealing Overseas and Military Ballots from Michigan, Georgia and Now Arizona Too.  Last Monday the Arizona Senate reconvened.  During a senate session, the discussion turned to the UOCAVA voters — the voters covered under the Uniform Overseas Civilian Absentee Voting Act.  These are the men and women who are serving their country in the military and send in a mail-in vote from where they are stationed outside the country. [...] During the hearing, Paul Harris, a Maricopa resident and veteran in corporate executive management, spoke to the committee.  Harris was a manager during the audit of the Maricopa County audit of the 2020 election ballots.

Georgia Officials Tampered With And Deleted Hours Of Ballot Box Video Before It Was Released To Investigators.  Garland Favorito and VoterGA held a press conference last Thursday at 10 AM Eastern to discuss the lack of chain of custody documentation on the state's ballot drop-box implementation.  According to Garland and VoterGA at least 100,000 Georgia ballots lack the adequate chain of custody documents from the 2020 election.  The number is likely much larger than this.  Garland Favorito told The Gateway Pundit his investigation corroborates the True the Vote ballot box fraud investigation in the state of Georgia.  Garland told us they still have no idea how many ballots came from drop boxes in 2020.  That number has not been provided by the state!  This is absolutely shocking that that number was never released.

Dinesh D'Souza Releases Movie Trailer for "2000 Mules" Exposing Ballot Traffickers Who Stole the 2020 Election.  True the Vote has been working with Dinesh D'Souza to create a bombshell movie that uses footage they obtained of ballot boxes in key states across America to steal the election in 2020.  100 Percent Fed Up reports — Using geo-tracking devices, True the Vote was able to take footage from drop boxes across America in key states like Georgia and others to track over 2,000 'mules" wearing gloves and disguises to stuff ballot boxes.

2000 Mules, The Background of the 2020 Election Fraud.  CTH continues to be cautious with measured expectations around this story, because a thoroughly corrupt and politically compromised DOJ has possessed all of this information for almost a year.  There will be a response.  Likely a massive, coordinated and weaponized response from the totality of the most politically corrupt DC system in our nation's history, every branch, and their aligned ideologues outside government.  [Video clip]  Catherine Engelbrecht is a genuine national hero, and her organization True The Vote (TTV) will be known in history long after these decades are passed.  Long-term readers of CTH also know we fully support Englebrecht and her team, we always have.

What to make of Biden secretly transporting illegal aliens into the US.  Two days ago, the New York Post reported the following:  "Under cover of darkness, every night the federal government is transporting illegal migrants as fast as it can away from the border on secret charter flights into unsuspecting communities around the country.  Officials have lied and obstructed the few journalists who have tried to reveal the truth."  This has been an old Democrat project.  They begin by inviting illegal immigrants either explicitly or implicitly through various public forums.  They then allow numerous illegal aliens into the country by opening up the border.  Since these migrants are uneducated, unskilled, and impoverished they depend on government welfare for their survival.  This makes them a permanent underclass who the Democrats think will be perennially subservient to them.  Many of these migrants eventually are transferred to locations where Republicans traditionally win.  The Democrats know they can never convince conservatives to vote for their radical left-wing policies.  So they drown the impact of these resident voters by giving voting rights to a sufficient number of migrants to facilitate a Democrat win.  Soon they plan to have a permanent presence in the House, Senate, and the White House.

40% Of Pennsylvania Ballots In The 2020 Election Were Unconstitutiona.  Attorney Wally Zimolong walks Steve Bannon through the facts of his lawsuit in Pennsylvania, in which the court today agreed that the law of Pennsylvania does not allow "no excuse" mail-in balloting.  This ruling said the attenpt to allow such mail-in balloting was invalid from the start, meaning before the 2020 election.  [Video clip]

Swing State Courts Strengthen Election Integrity In Major Rulings Ahead Of 2022 Midterms.  Several state courts issued major election integrity rulings this week that could have a profound effect on elections in swing states ahead of the 2022 midterms.  The Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court ruled on Friday that the state's "no-excuse" mail-in voting law, also known as Act 77, violates the state's Constitution which requires in-person voting for most people who don't fit the state's list of exceptions.  In a 3-2 decision, the court's conservative majority determined that the expansion of mail-in voting put ballots in the hands of constitutionally ineligible people.  While the court acknowledged that the law made voting "more convenient," the judges noted that legislators can't just ignore the Pennsylvania Constitution to get what they want.

Election Law That Helped Make Joe Biden President Struck Down as Unconstitutional.  A five-judge panel has ruled that Pennsylvania's universal mail-in voting law violates the state's constitution, an argument conservatives have been making since it was enacted in 2019. That election law went on to play a pivotal role in delivering the state for Joe Biden in 2020, who trailed on Election Night, but pulled ahead as more and more mail-in votes were counted.  The court's decision essentially made the case that any law to make mail-in ballots universal versus only being allowed in defined circumstances needed to come via an amendment to the state's constitution, given the current language.  That was the same case former President Donald Trump's legal team attempted to make.  Unfortunately, the courts at the time brushed off their challenge.  Now, though it's far too late to change things, there is some vindication happening on that front.

Expert Hacker's 25,000-Word 'Secret Report' Threatens to Uncover Georgia's Real Election Vulnerabilities.  Georgia's elections controversy is being taken to new levels with the revelation that a 25,000-word "secret report" on its voting systems vulnerabilities may soon be released.  The security flaws in Georgia's election system was uncovered by a professor who specializes in election integrity.  A judge may soon make the findings public.  "The vulnerability was first alleged in sealed court documents in July by Alex Halderman, a computer science professor at the University of Michigan," the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.  "As an expert for plaintiffs in the election security lawsuit, Halderman gained access to Georgia voting equipment for 12 weeks and produced a 25,000-word secret report."  "Halderman found that malicious software could be installed on voting touchscreens so that votes are changed in QR codes printed on paper ballots, which are then scanned to record votes, according to court documents," the report continued.  "QR codes aren't readable by the human eye, and voters have no way to know whether they match the printed text of their choices."

The Big Lie 2024: A Peek Inside the Ruling Elite's Playbook to Kneecap Trump, Purge Military, and Neutralize MAGA.  The American regime is terrified.  They moved heaven and earth to derail Trump's term in office and turn him out after four years.  Now the ruling class faces the very real prospect that, if the 2024 election is remotely fair, he will be swept back into the White House, more powerful than ever before.  That is, if the 2024 election is fair.  America's governing class and its media apparatchiks have repeatedly labeled Trump's complaints about the 2020 election "the Big Lie."  But there is a Bigger Lie afoot, one with a much greater bearing on the future.  The Bigger Lie is this:  That the January 6 Capitol incident was an "attempted coup," and that this coup was launched by a wider pro-Trump "anti-democracy" movement (as opposed to the anti-Trump, anti-democracy movement known as the FBI).  This movement, the Bigger Lies goes, is a "danger to our democracy" and must be hunted down to destruction.  In the name of this Bigger Lie, America's governing class of academics, security staters, elected lawmakers, and media propagandists are preparing to sweep away what remains of America's democratic process.  Their goal:  To render the 2024 election null, with a preordained outcome that poses no danger to the ruling elite's wishes.  And the planning for this revolution is happening right out in public.

Pennsylvania voting fight escalates as court strikes down mail ballot law.  A Pennsylvania state court on Friday [1/28/2022] struck down the law allowing any voter to cast a ballot by mail, handing a victory to Republican lawmakers who sought to curtail the practice amid former President Donald Trump's attacks on mail voting.  A panel of judges from Pennsylvania's commonwealth court ruled that Act 77 — which passed out of the state legislature with bipartisan support and was signed by Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf in 2019 — violated the state constitution.

Pennsylvania Court Rules Act 77 of 2019 Unconstitutional — Mail-In Voting on Hold.  A statewide court in Pennsylvania ruled on Friday the expansive two-year-old mail-in voting is unconstitutional.  According to a Commonwealth Court filing released Friday, Act 77 which allows residents to vote by mail in Pennsylvania, violates Article VII, Section 1 of the Pennsylvania constitution.

Court ruling puts mail-in voting on hold in Pennsylvania.  A statewide court says Pennsylvania's expansive two-year-old mail-in voting law is unconstitutional, agreeing with challenges by Republicans who soured on mail-in voting after then-President Donald Trump began baselessly attacking it as rife with fraud in 2020's campaign.  According to a Commonwealth Court filing released Friday [1/28/2022], the court ruled that Act 77, allowing residents to vote by mail in Pennsylvania, violates Article VII, Section 1 of the Pennsylvania constitution.  The Commonwealth Court denied the Pa.  Department of State acting secretary's application for summary relief. [...] Friday's decision by a five-judge Commonwealth Court panel could be put on hold immediately by an appeal from Gov. Tom Wolf's administration to the state Supreme Court.

There's a reason why Democrats have long controlled poll places.  One of the things that's bewildered me for almost 20 years is why poll workers are so often Democrats.  I assumed it was because Republicans were too passive and disinterested to get involved at the ground level.  This matters because, as both Stalin and Biden said, what ultimately matters is who counts the votes — and the next closest thing to counting the votes is being a poll worker.  I just learned that I owe Republicans an apology.  It turns out that, in 1982, the RNC entered into a consent decree that prohibited it from aggressively enlisting poll workers, and that consent decree only fully ended last year.  The consent decree isn't a secret.  It's simply that I hadn't paid attention to it before and, I'm betting, many of you hadn't either.

Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers on Recalling Electors:  "If Wisconsin Can Do It, Arizona Should Have Been FIRST".  Legislators in Arizona and Wisconsin are pushing to decertify their states' fraudulent 2020 elections with promised resolutions to reclaim the Presidential electors.  The Gateway Pundit reported that the Wisconsin State Assembly voted to move forward Rep. Ramthun's resolution to reclaim Wisconsin's 10 electors for US President and Vice President who were certified under fraudulent purposes.  Arizona's full forensic audit of Maricopa County's 2020 election found evidence of elections law violations and hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes.  All evidence was delivered to the Arizona Attorney General, and some legislators are ready to decertify Arizona.  In the meantime, Arizona awaits the results of Attorney General Mark Brnovich's criminal investigation.

Florida's Governor Makes Smart Proposal to Go After Election Crimes.  So Corrupt Media Attacks Him.  Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has a good idea with his budget proposal to create an "election crimes agency" that would "investigate election crimes and irregularities and make referrals for further legal action directly to a statewide prosecutor." Florida should implement it, and other states should follow.  In fact, state legislators should make sure that a statewide prosecutor's office has jurisdiction to prosecute all such election cases, especially when local prosecutors fail to act.  Ensuring the integrity of elections and protecting voters from fraud is simply too important to leave the investigation and prosecution of crimes that subvert elections to the whims of local prosecutors.  All too often, they lack the training or aren't interested in pursuing such cases.  This problem has gotten worse with the election of rogue prosecutors with funding from the radical left, such as Monique Worrell and predecessor Aramis Ayala in Florida's Orange and Osceola counties.  Such prosecutors aren't interested in actively prosecuting many serious crimes, including election fraud.

Tribal Morality:  The Difference Between Election Fraud And Voter Suppression.  When conservatives started worrying about election fraud before the 2020 election and complained about it after, they were told they were anti-democratic.  It's a whole different story in 2022 now that Democrats are insisting that the upcoming elections are a recipe for voter suppression.  The Democrat party and its operatives in the federal government have been outraged for over a year when they contemplate how anyone in his right mind could claim that the 2020 elections were fraudulent, despite voluminous and well-documented evidence suggesting massive and coordinated fraud and cheating during those elections.  Democrats keep claiming, without proof, that there has been no "significant" election fraud in 2020 and insisting that anyone who wants to claim there was must prove it or be silenced.  Then, of course, they cut off all efforts to show that proof.  Most good faith attempts before judges to prove widespread fraud and cheating were either dismissed before the elections because it was "too early to sue" or, after the elections, because it was "too late to sue," or the plaintiffs were dismissed for lack of standing.

Wisconsin Assembly Sends Election Shockwaves by Voting to Withdraw 10 Biden Electors.  The Wisconsin Assembly has voted in the affirmative to pass a privileged resolution to withdraw the state's 10 electors who were slated to have cast their votes for Joe Biden in the 2020 election.  The announcement of the privileged resolution, as well as the present members unanimous vote to pass it, can be viewed below.  [Video clip]  The privileged resolution to withdraw the Biden electors will now proceed to the Wisconsin Rules Committee in the Wisconsin Assembly and to the Wisconsin Senate for immediate confirmation.

Questioning election integrity is not graded on a curve.  During the final debate of the 2016 election, moderator Chris Wallace asked candidate Donald Trump, "Do you make the commitment that you will absolutely accept the results of this election?"  Trump's response?  "I will look at it at the time."  In other words, "It depends."  If that sounds familiar, it's the answer President Joe Biden gave when asked about the 2022 midterm elections. [...] Biden rested his assertion on the passage of two partisan election bills, one of which House Democrats passed in 2019 as a messaging bill for base supporters that had zero input from Republicans.  The other would reinstate entirely unnecessary preclearance rules from the Voting Rights Act.  The Supreme Court struck down the provisions in 2013, and no reasonable argument exists to reinstate them.

When Will People Finally See the Obvious?  Consider the number of things the Left has been willing to lie to the American people about in recent years. [...] So why has this leap of faithlessness not jumped over to the obvious facts of the 2020 election?  Those currently in power have a clear track record of covering up the truth on major news stories, but we're somehow supposed to believe what they say about the 2020 election? [...] In 2020, however, there was a problem with not one, but with half a dozen states, that oddly enough comprised only the swing states.  Those states all stopped counting within hours of each other, and this while Trump was either in the lead or surging.  The count stopped cold, and suddenly (for some reason) we were told it would take days, not hours, to pick things up again to finish the tallies.  Over the next few days, then, tens of thousands of ballots mysteriously arrived and unbelievably — perhaps you could say magically — they were overwhelmingly slated for Joe Biden.  And any irregularities that emerged in voting machines, whether a surge or general error, always favored Biden.  Nothing in the plus column for Trump in any of the states he needed to reach 270.

Suddenly, It's No Longer 'Deeply Dangerous' To Talk About Rigged Elections.  It wasn't long ago that we were told that President Donald Trump's questioning the legitimacy of the election wasn't just unfounded, but a serious threat to the future of the nation.  As one commentator put it, by raising the specter of election fraud, Trump was "sowing doubt not just about the 2020 election, but whether America's voting system — the foundation of American democracy — is sound ... In a democracy, where governing power is rooted in the consent of the governed, this is deeply dangerous."  Yet here is President Joe Biden, predicting that the next election can't be trusted, based on far less evidence than Trump had.  And the press is celebrating him for it.

Your Right To Vote Doesn't Include A Right To Vote From Your Couch.  There is a right to vote.  There is no right to sloth.  There is no right to sit on your hands all year and then have a ballot automatically appear in your mailbox.  There is no right to mark your ballot at your leisure up to two weeks before the election and then hand it off to someone else to turn in to election officials.  There is no right to wait until the afternoon of election day and then saunter into any random precinct, register to vote, then immediately cast a ballot without bothering to bring a photo identification.  And there is no right to commit armed robbery, distribute drugs, or steal millions from hedge funds, and then the moment you step outside of prison demand society allow you a say in governance equal to that of law-abiding citizens.  Yet in pushing for passage of the so-called Freedom to Vote Act, Democrats and the left-leaning press framed the bill as protecting the "right to vote."

N.J. bans police at polling stations in new law advocates say prevents voter intimidation.  New Jersey has banned police officers from lingering around polling stations and ballot drop boxes on election days under a new law that advocates argued was needed to protect against voter intimidation.  Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy signed the Democratic-sponsored bill into law earlier in the week after it passed the Democratic-controlled state Legislature mostly along party lines.  It says both plain-clothed or uniformed police need to keep at least 100 feet from polling stations or drop boxes.  The legislation was born out of events that occurred more than four decades ago, when the Republican National Committee amid a gubernatorial race that year between Republican Tom Kean and Democrat Jim Florio established the so-called Ballot Security Task Force.  The stated mission of the group, which consisted of police officers, was to prevent voter fraud and secure the election.

The Editor says...
Normal people welcome the police, and are not intimidated by them.  There is only one reason someone would object to the presence of police at a polling place.

It's Still Timely And Necessary To Get The 2020 Election Right.  A solid majority of Americans know that the 2020 election was fraudulent.  That's a big problem for a country with a representative government, one in which the leaders are supposed to represent the will of the people.  We're a nation of laws ostensibly flowing from a Constitution that sets out explicit limitations on the federal government's powers and protects a variety of citizens' rights upon which said government cannot infringe.  To the degree that a significant majority of citizens feel that the leader of this government was not constitutionally elected, that's a problem.  For all its importance, our Constitution is nothing more than a piece of paper.  It doesn't make laws.  It doesn't have an army.  It's not the police.  It's just words on paper.  It functions because Americans have confidence in its words as the foundation for the laws of our country and the guideposts governing the actions of those who actually control the army and the police and write the laws.  When that confidence is shaken, society's foundation is shaken.

Did over 100,000 people older than 124 years vote in Wisconsin?  If you've been wondering about the extent of voter fraud in America, we may be seeing a staggering amount of either fraud or grotesque negligence in Wisconsin voter rolls.  A review of the state's voter roles showed that 569,277 voters registered on January 1, 1918.  Of that number, 20% of these people, all of whom must be at least 124 years old, voted last November.  Biden "won" in Wisconsin by 20,682 votes. [...] Roughly two weeks ago, Jay Valentine wrote about the extent of fraud he and his team have discovered as they've uploaded voter rolls (which often had corrupted data that seemed deliberately intended to keep information opaque) into Valentine's system.  Once the information for any given state was loaded and sorted, it invariably revealed rather surprising information in both red and blue states.  Among other things, in one red state, there were "4,300 people over 100 years old on their rolls.  Some were 121.  Those were the kids.  The really old ones were almost 2,000 years old, and there were a bunch of them — and they voted."

Eric Adams May Well Force The Federalization Of Elections.  Today Americans can feel relief and gladness.  The Senate put to rest the "Freedom to Vote:  John R. Lewis Act."  Much has been written regarding all the bad ideas contained in this bill; [...] Some Democrats are already gearing up to continue the fight for its passage.  New York City Mayor Eric Adams may have just thrown those plans into disarray.  In fact, though not the first location to allow non-citizens to participate in voting, his notoriety as the mayor of America's largest city has brought the issue to the fore.  Maryland, Vermont, and California all have jurisdictions in which some form of noncitizen voting is permitted.  It's being seriously considered in others.  Mayor Adams recently approved it for NYC.  Now is the time for conservatives to take a good hard look at federalizing elections, from an America First perspective, and not with just a knee-jerk no reaction.

ERIC Investigation, Part 2: The Largest U.S. Counties Removed Only ZERO to TWO Ineligible Voters From Their Voter Rolls the Last 4 Years.  On Thursday [1/20/2022] The Gateway Pundit revealed Democrats and leftists have fought ferociously to prevent the cleanup of State voter registration rolls.  Recognizing a potential niche, left-wing activists created ERIC to clean voter rolls their way, using their rules.  So in 2012 the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) was formed as a membership organization primarily for blue States.  ERIC is essentially a left wing voter registration drive disguised as voter roll clean up.  But it's been gaining traction in Red States too.  Originally funded by the Soros Open Society, it is now responsible for cleaning the voter rolls in 31 States, plus D.C.  A top election official from each member State is appointed a seat on the ERIC Board or as an Officer, all unpaid positions.

Elections Expert Reveals Over 550,000 Registered Voters In Wisconsin Have a Registration Date of 1/1/1918 — 115,252 of Them VOTED in 2020.  On Wednesday, the Wisconsin Assembly held another election integrity hearing to present evidence of voter fraud and irregularities that have been found in their investigation of the rigged 2020 election.  And just like last month's election hearing, they dropped some serious bombshells.  Yesterday's hearing built on those findings and presented more questions for the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC), which has failed to answer previous questions on the 2020 election.  They did however respond to the reported 119,283 active voters who have been registered for over 100 years, but their weak response just didn't cut it.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos disciplines GOP lawmaker who is the most vocal denier of 2020 election outcome.  The Republican leader of the state Assembly on Thursday [1/20/2022] placed sanctions on one of his members who has for more than a year falsely claimed former President Trump won the 2020 election in Wisconsin and has proposed legislation to pull back Wisconsin's electoral votes, which is impossible.  Assembly Speaker Robin Vos stripped Rep. Timothy Ramthun of Campbellsport of his only staffer after Ramthun falsely accused Vos of signing a deal with attorneys for former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to authorize ballot drop boxes, according to Vos's office.

The Editor says...
If I were the editor of jsonline.com, I'd be very careful about making rash pronouncements about the validity of Mr. Ramthun's claims, especially since he's not the only person disputing the outcome of the 2020 election.

Fact-Checking 3 Claims at Democrats' 'Voter Suppression' Hearing.  The day after Senate Democrats failed to change the chamber's rules to pass legislation nationalizing election laws, House Democrats used a hearing to push a "voter suppression" narrative against Republicans.  A House Judiciary Committee panel heard from experts Thursday [1/20/2022], and individual members sounded off.  Senate Democrats attempted and failed Wednesday night to scrap the filibuster rule, which requires 60 votes out of 100 to end debate and proceed to a vote on legislation.  Democrats sought to change the Senate rules to pass the Freedom to Vote Act, a scaled-down version of a bill known as HR 1.  The legislation would create national laws for automatic voter registration, universal mail-in voting, new redistricting laws, and campaign finance laws.

Garland Favorito says the Pro-China RINO George Sec. of State is Behind the 2020 Georgia Election Coverup.  The evidence of corruption in several states across America have already been discovered and exposed.  The leftist Democrat controlled media has simply lied and gaslighted the public into believing none of it is real, citing moronic reasons like 'they have never audited an election before, [therefore] they can't be right' (in regards to Arizona).  Despite the fact they found tens of thousands of ballots were faked.  FAR more than needed for Trump to win.  Now, we have proof Georgia is no different, except the fact the Republican governor who is a Chinese puppet, also helped Democrats so Trump would lose.  [Video clip]

Pennsylvania's Secretary of State, Dominion, and Democrat Senators Beg PA Supreme Court to Stop Investigation of Fulton County Voting Machines.  The corrupt Pennsylvania Secretary of State, Dominion Voting Machines, and now the Democrats in the Pennsylvania Senate all desperately want to end the investigation of the voting machines in Fulton County.  Today they dropped nearly 750 pages of garbage arguments and made their plea in front of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.  Remember this:  As an international auditor who performed hundreds of audits around the world, I have never seen or heard about an auditee refusing to be audited.  I have certainly never experienced an auditee take me to court to prevent an audit from taking place.  The fact that the state of Pennsylvania and Dominion Voting Machines are trying to prevent an investigation of these machines in Fulton County raises more red flags than are raised in a CCP parade.

The Media Is Already Having a Meltdown as Texas Proves Its New Voting Laws Work.  The voting laws implemented in Texas were always going to be a huge problem for Democrats.  So much so that Texas Democrats staged a walk-out and fled the state to Washington, D.C., where they did nothing but embarrass themselves and spread the COVID-19 virus.  In fact, the entire stunt was really just a promotion for the "For the People Act," a Democrat drawn-up plan that would seize power from states to run their own elections, and put it in the hands of the federal government.  This would, more or less, keep Democrats in complete and total power for the next few hundred years, or until the populace removed them by force.  But now, the voting laws put in place by Texas are already having the effect intended:  keeping the elections secure.

State Senator Wendy Rogers Speaks At AZ Trump Rally:  "I Am A Yes Vote To Decertify".  President Trump held a rally on Saturday in Florence, Arizona, with candidates he endorsed in the 2022 midterm.  Thousands of patriots attended President Trump's first rally of 2022, and millions more watched online.  The Gateway Pundit reported that police had to turn people away because the venue was too full.  The crowd size is more proof that the Arizona 2020 presidential election was stolen from President Trump.  The full forensic audit of Maricopa County's 2020 Election provided more than enough evidence that President Trump won Arizona, and investigations in other counties are still ongoing.

Biden Officials Defy Critical Civil Rights Law.  Rather than assuring the right for Black people to vote, Biden's so-called voting rights bills have only one real purpose.  They are all designed to allow enough illegal voting to ensure permanent Democrat victories in every race from President down to the Director of Political Payoffs in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana.  For example, the Biden-backed bills outlaw voter ID.  That would be a huge help to continue the voting fraud career of the Miami man who admitted in a TV news interview he voted seventeen times in the 2000 Bush-Gore race.  Biden's bill would also outlaw any voter ID for mail-in ballots.  That would help repeat the 2008 election fraud where all 120 ballots mailed to patients in an Ohio nursing home were completed in the same handwriting with the same mauve-colored ink.  Some of the names in the signatures were even misspelled!  Of course, the ballots all voted the straight Democrat ticket.  Ballot stuffers used to crawl thru cemeteries gathering names from tombstones to obtain large blocks of straight Democrat voters.  Now the Ohio Dems have a better scheme.  They catch older, often-addled voters while they are still in nursing homes!

Biden's Attack On Voting Rights Far Surpasses Trump's Election Claims.  Democrats and the leftist media continue to champion the House's sham investigation into the events of January 6, 2021, with news breaking just yesterday that the illegally constituted committee had subpoenaed Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, and others.  Yet, if these January 6 truthers genuinely believed that election-related rhetoric caused the capitol riots and represent a real threat to our republic, they would turn their attention to the current White House and to their own Grand Poohbah.  In one week alone, President Biden eclipsed everything Donald Trump and his supporters said about the validity of the 2020 election.  By framing his false claims of "voter suppression" and "election subversion" as Jim Crow 2.0, our commander in chief has guaranteed a divided America.  The only remaining question is whether he has also guaranteed a violent America.

The Continuing Saga of Corruption in the 2020 Election.  In an embarrassing rejection of anything remotely related to smart political optics, Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi decided to shill for the federalization of elections to ensure equity and inclusion at the ballot box while standing in front of two women of color, standing behind her, their faces and voices muzzled by masks.  Just for fun rather than because it's relevant to the rest of the piece, here's that video.  Because what an absolutely spectacular failure of messaging.  [Tweet]  What is relevant to the subject of the rest of this piece is the attempt by Democrats to codify into federal law the seriously sketchy — and questionably legal — things they did in states to tilt the election to Joe Biden.

Fighters Are Uncovering 2020 Election Ugliness in Michigan.  Michigan grassroots conservatives continue in their efforts to bring to light the malfeasance, fraud, and violation of Michigan election law that occurred in the 2020 election, particularly in Detroit.  They are continually reminded by mainstream media and the Michigan secretary of state that the 2020 election was the most secure in history.  The observations and sworn testimonies of many citizens do not support this notion.  Using COVID as the excuse, the secretary of state, Jocelyn Benson, mailed out unrequested absentee ballot applications.  What authority did she have?  The Michigan Court of Appeals ruled that she did have authority under state law and the Michigan constitution.  But Judge Patrick Meter, in a dissenting opinion, said that she "was not expressly granted the authority to send unsolicited absentee voter applications by the Legislature under state law."  It was a stretch to assume that because of the passage of Proposal 3 in Michigan in 2018, allowing for no-excuse absentee voting, the secretary of state had the right to take it a step farther and mail out millions of unsolicited absentee ballot applications.  This provided low-hanging fruit for would-be ballot-harvesters and stuffers.  She also allowed a partisan organization, Rock the Vote, to funnel new registrations into the Qualified Voter File (QVF).

Video Shows Pennsylvania Official Admitting Election Laws Were Broken In 2020.  Regina Miller, a contract worker for the large Pennsylvania county, filmed the video of the April 7, 2021 Zoom meeting, which involved voting officials discussing plans for the upcoming elections, according to sources familiar with the recording.  The video began with Perrone, who, according to a lawsuit filed against her, other Delaware County officials, and the county, served as a project manager for the county, saying they would "talk about that off-line" — with the "that" not specified.  The remainder of the clip, however, gave some clues, with Perrone saying she had a brief conversation with "Jim," "and this time it's much different than last time because we're going to have them sign oaths.  There're going to be W4s and we need them to sign something allowing somebody else to pick up.  So, we're going to actually follow the law fully this time," Perrone ended with a laugh.

Texas Dems work around election integrity law as they mail out "hundreds of thousands" of mail-in ballots.  The Texas Legislature passed SB1 which ushers in election integrity reforms in 2021 and Governor Abbott signed it into law.  Texas Democrats now complain that voter suppression is happening in the form of the number of rejections of mail-in ballot applications.  Texas lawmakers would not have had to pass election integrity reforms if the rookie Harris County Clerk, a young and aggressive Democrat, had not decided to use the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to create new ways of voting in the 2020 elections.  It began when he announced that mail-in ballot applications would be mailed to every registered voter in Harris County — more than 2.4 million — which is against Texas election law.  He was quickly stopped by court order.  Other actions were taken by his office which had never been done before and was outside of election law, such as twenty-four-hour voting and drive-thru voting, as well as an increase of drop boxes for ballots that were frequently left unattended.  Lawmakers in Austin passed legislation that makes election law uniform across the state and prevents local officials from going rogue in pursuit of their political agenda.

Texas county rejects half of mail-in ballot applications amid new voter restrictions.  Election officials in the Texas county that includes the state capital, Austin, have rejected about half of applications for mail-in ballots, following new voting restrictions brought in by Republicans.  The voter identification rules have led to the rejection of about half of the 700 mail-in ballots requested in Travis county for primary elections in March, according to the county's clerk.  The denied ballots in Travis county follow a similar trend across Texas, with officials in Harris county, which includes the city of Houston, and Bexar county, which includes San Antonio, also turning down a substantial number of mail-in ballot applications.

Wisconsin Judge Rules Ballot Drop Boxes Used in 2020 Election Were Illegal.  A judge in the state of Wisconsin ruled on Thursday [1/13/2022] that the use of ballot boxes in the 2020 election was, in fact, illegal.  Joe Biden was declared the winner over Donald Trump in the state by 20,682 votes.  Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren issued the decision in a lawsuit that had been filed on behalf of two voters by the Wisconsin Institute of Law & Liberty (WILL). WILL argued that the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) had unilaterally issued guidance to election clerks, authorizing the use of ballot collection boxes, in contradiction of state law.  "The guidance from the Wisconsin Elections Commission on absentee ballot drop boxes was unlawful.  There are just two legal methods to cast an absentee ballot in Wisconsin: through the mail or in-person at a clerk's office.  And voters must return their own ballots," commented WILL Deputy Counsel Luke Berg.  "We are pleased the court made this clear, providing Wisconsin voters with certainty for forthcoming elections."

Judge rules absentee ballot drop boxes illegal in Wisconsin, regulators must retract guidance.  A Wisconsin judge has ruled that the absentee ballot drop boxes widely deployed during the 2020 election are not allowed under state law, a decision that could dramatically impact voting ahead of the swing state's midterm elections.  Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren ordered on Thursday the Wisconsin Elections Commission to retract its instructions to election officials on how to use drop boxes.  Bohren declared that the WEC had overstepped its authority in issuing the guidance in the first place.  Bohren called the WEC's guidance a "major policy decision that alter[s] how our absentee ballot process operates," that was significant enough that it should have required approval by the Legislature.

Biden's Big Elections Lie.  [Scroll down]  Biden's argument is predicated on the idea that anyone who continues to support the legislative filibuster — a Senate rule the president defended for nearly 50 years — or voter ID laws, or time restrictions on mail-in ballots, or consistent hours for early voting, or bans on ballot harvesting, is no better than Bull Connor.  "Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace?" was the false choice offered by a man who repeatedly praised Wallace, and other segregationists, early in his career.  The president suggested that anyone opposing the Democrats' voting rights bill was not only a bigot but a seditious "domestic" enemy of the United States — a designation that now probably includes six Democratic senators, if not more.

It's Not Just Manchin and Sinema.  Anyone who can legally vote can vote.  No legislation that the Republicans are pushing is depriving one person of the right to vote.  What they deal with are voter integrity issues like having voter ID or ballot harvesting — that's what Democrats don't want because those measures help to prevent fraud.  As I noted over the weekend, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed election integrity bills were a "legislative continuation of Jan. 6."  But while she said pushed that insanity, Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) gave the game away, admitting that purpose was a federal takeover of elections, claiming that the "federal elections cannot be left up to the states, should not be left up to the states."  It's all about control.

[The] GOP's Old Guard [is] Out Of Touch With Their Voters On Election Integrity.  n Tuesday, President Joe Biden gave a speech asserting that people who oppose his plan for a federal takeover of elections are domestic enemies and racists.  "Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor?  Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?" Biden asked in his speech falsely claiming that the "right to vote" was in doubt throughout the country.  Biden is lobbying to end the Senate's legislative filibuster in order to push through his plan for a radical takeover of elections.  The election bill would unconstitutionally empower the federal government to control state election procedures, and help make permanent the decreased election safeguards that caused so many problems throughout the country in 2020.

Democrats Block Plan to Remove Foreign Nationals from Voter Rolls.  House Democrats this week blocked a plan that would have required states to remove foreign nationals from voter rolls.  On Wednesday [1/12/2022], Democrats voted down an amendment by Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) that would have kicked likely hundreds, and potentially thousands, of foreign nationals off state voter rolls.  The amendment would have been tacked onto the Democrats' "Freedom to Vote:  John R. Lewis Act" which seeks to federalize all local and state elections with prohibitions on requiring photo identification when voting by mail and weakens current requirements that mandate states routinely clean their voter rolls.

Anyone-can-vote madness hits NYC, serving up yet another far-left victory.  Routine definitions of the word "citizen" include such phrases as a "person who legally belongs to a country and has the rights and protection of that country" and a person "who owes allegiance to a government and is entitled to protection from it."  The common point is the transaction — a citizen gives something and gets something, as does the government.  One of those rights that has universally distinguished citizens from noncitizens is the right to vote.  Unfortunately, we can now add that distinction to history's trash heap thanks to the far left's war on the nation's culture and legal systems.  The decision by New York's City Council to allow more than 800,000 noncitizen immigrants to vote in municipal elections is a watershed moment for the left's goal of erasing standards and merit in American life.  In this case, the compact between rights and responsibilities is severed, with only the rights remaining to the immigrants who are relieved of any responsibilities to the city and the other 8 million inhabitants.

What Are Elections Supposed to Do?  The disputes over the 2020 election demonstrate a real weakness in the system.  The procedures, records, and structures we have in place do not permit a timely audit of most states' presidential elections.  Previous elections were saved by larger margins in more states.  In all but the closest elections, a rotten precinct in Atlanta or Philadelphia wouldn't change the outcome.  That was not the case in 2020. In fact, a tiny sliver of votes, obtained late at night in Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona put Biden over the top.  Before the recounts and legal challenges were complete, the media and most of the establishment began to insist that Trump was obliged to concede.  He did not.  Even after the Electoral College spoke, a good swath of his supporters refused to concede Biden's victory, other than as a practical matter.  Those who breached the Capitol on January 6 were simply the most passionate of the bunch.  But the media and managerial class, with their constant demonization of those protesters, know that they're only the tip of the iceberg.  Approximately 75 percent of Republicans believe there was significant election fraud in 2020.  In maintaining this view, this class believes that these Republicans deprived Biden and the system as a whole of its legitimacy.  This is a problem.

Democrat Poll Watcher Removes Ballots from Trash Meant for Shredding, Returns to Machine Room.  Despite thousands of sworn affidavits across the country from poll watchers and election officials admitting there was widespread fraud in the 2020 election, the mainstream media has done a superb job refusing to show any evidence at all of the people who were openly caught on video running the same ballots through the machines, throwing out Trump votes, joking about switching ballots from Trump to Biden online vids, and even proof showing millions of dead voters and illegal voters, the media ignored all of that in order to brush aside the fact Democrats had to steal the 2020 election to get Crooked Joe Biden in office.  Now, more evidence continues to show Democrats caught on cam cheating.  Here is yet another example of the tens of thousands that are already out there.  This is exactly why the media and Dem's are working so hard to distract you with Jan 6th protests.  They know they were busted, they know they're still getting away with it.  But, they know people are waking up and that terrifies them.  [Video clip]

And Now, We turn Our Attention to Seizing States' Control of Elections & Nullifying Your Vote.  While the news cycle has long been dominated by Covid madness, a bumbling inept leader and ambitious lefts' attempt to turn America into into a retarded version of a soviet union and the resulting chaos, not much attention has been paid to the Democrats former #1 legislative priority that got sidelined in favor of the pandemic craziness.  It wasn't health care, immigration, or taxes.  No, their first legislative priority after the 2018 midterms was grabbing more power by centralizing power over elections in Washington, D.C.  There wasn't going to be another 2016!  What was called 'H.R. 1' was intended to be the first priority of House Democrats, leftist groups, deep-pocketed dark money and those who use, by hook or crook, the election process rules to help win elections, or at least to cause chaos and throw it to the courts.  The original bill is a 571-page dreamscape of wild wishes and federal mandates on states that got some heat when exposed to the public for being the blatant power grab that it is.  Seizing States' Control of Elections.

Lawsuit Reveals Fulton County 2020 Absentee Ballot Results Were Physically Impossible and Files Were Modified.  There are a lot of questions surrounding the events in the State Farm Arena in Fulton County during Election 2020.  All 148,318 absentee ballots were reportedly scanned in Fulton County's ballot processing center at the Arena.  Those ballots processed in the Arena were supposed to be authenticated first.  The voter logs were to be used to identify voters, and then the signatures would be verified.  Separated from their envelopes, the ballots were then to be arranged in batches of 100.  Each batch of ballots was then scanned using a Cannon DR-G2140 high-speed machine [as can be seen in the video from the Arena on Election night.]  The image of every ballot was saved simultaneously.  The Fulton County clerk produced scanned images of absentee ballots as a result of a previous lawsuit.  These images have been made public and are currently under review by a variety of individuals and groups.  An individual examining the data (RonC) spotted something he could not explain.  As the ballot images are scanned, timestamps are recorded in the image files.  The timestamps indicate that the image files were created faster than the capabilities of the scanners.  Often several times faster.

Outrage as Eric Adams Will Allow 800,000 Non-Citizens to Vote in NYC After Election Rule Change.  American citizenship is no longer required to vote in New York City's local elections.  Mayor Eric Adams said Saturday he supports a plan to allow non-citizens to vote in Big Apple municipal contests, saying it was the "best choice," according to the New York Post.  The bill was passed by the City Council last month and took effect Sunday because neither Adams nor former Mayor Bill DeBlasio vetoed it, according to The New York Times.  About 800,000 people who are not U.S. citizens can now vote for New York City mayor, council races, and local ballot propositions.  Although the law is aimed at legal citizens, it also allows gives the vote to participants in the Deferred Action for Childhoods Arrivals program — who were brought to the U.S. illegally as young children.

New York City Sued for Giving Voting Rights to Nearly 1M Foreign Nationals.  The New York State Republican Party, naturalized American citizens, and a Democrat city councilman have filed a lawsuit against New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) over a new policy that gives voting rights to nearly a million foreign nationals.  As Breitbart News has chronicled, Democrats on the 51-member New York City Council approved a plan last month that allows more than 800,000 foreign nationals with green cards, visas, and work permits the opportunity to vote in citywide elections so long as they have resided in the city for at least 30 consecutive days.

When a State's Secretary of State is in on Voter Fraud.  Let's take you through our excellent adventure working with voter integrity groups across the country.  You need to understand their dedication, resilience, and the odds they face when the reddest states' Secretary of State is in on "it."  "It" means they know their voter rolls are replete with phantoms, but they deny it, evade it, some hide it.  Let's go there.  Most people have downloaded a file.  It's easy.  Except if you live in a swing state on the southeast U.S. coast — and the file came from the Secretary of State's office.  When you process the file, it contains about every way of screwing up your search capability.  For instance:  it is supposed to be comma delimited but it isn't.  It has non-ASCII characters embedded.  That means search engines will flail with no result.  It has half quote marks which means there is no end of quote so it will not process.  There are nonsensical control characters throughout the data set.  This is deliberate data sabotage, intended to make it almost impossible for citizens using traditional tools to parse the data paid for with their taxes.

NYC Democrats Grant Voting Rights to Nearly 1 Million Noncitizens.  Up to one million noncitizens living in New York City will have access to the ballot box after Mayor Eric Adams (D) on Sunday approved legislation by the city council to automatically become law.  As Breitbart News reported last November, Adams has always supported the move.  "I believe that New Yorkers should have a say in their government, which is why I have and will continue to support this important legislation," Adams said in a statement Saturday, as seen by the New York Post.

NYC Mayor Adams takes a big step to cheapening American citizenship.  On January 1, New York City's new mayor, Eric Adams, was unsure about whether it was a good idea to sign off on a bill the NYC council passed in December allowing green card holders the right to vote in local elections.  A week passed, though, and Adams' doubts diminished so much that he's now on board with the plan.  Not only will the new policy delete the value of citizenship in New York City, but it's an almost inevitable step towards massive federal election fraud, with non-citizens (800,000 in NYC alone) affecting those elections.  The New York City council passed the "Our City, Our Vote" measure in December. [...] Under the bill, around 800,000 green card holders and recipients of deferred action, will get to vote in municipal elections.  The premise is that, because these people live in the city, they should have a say in how it's run.  But of course, one can say that about anybody living both legally or illegally anywhere, whether a city, state, or country.  And indeed, the identical argument applies to letting such people vote for the president because his acts affect them.

Democratic Governor Calls For Criminalizing "Lying" About Election Results.  For years, I have lamented how the Democratic party has embraced censorship and the criminalization of speech.  I come from a liberal Democratic family in Chicago and the Democratic Party once championed free speech as the defining value of the party.  Democratic politicians now lead calls for censorship to silence their opponents and corporate regulations to protect citizens from dangerous choices in reading material.  The same concerns were raised this week after Washington Gov. Jay Inslee called for the criminalization of "lies" about election results.  Inslee wants to convict people who raise election challenges or allegations.  Such a law would threaten political speech and create a chilling effect for those who want to raise such concerns in contested elections.  Inslee made his comments as part of the Jan. 6th anniversary.  It appears to follow Speaker Nancy Pelosi's directive for Democrats to "preserve the narrative" of that day.

Gov. Inslee proposes bill making it illegal for elected leaders, candidates to spread election fraud lies.  Gov. Jay Inslee proposed new legislation on Thursday [1/6/2022], which would make it a misdemeanor for elected leaders or candidates to spread unfounded allegations of voter fraud.  Speaking on the one-year anniversary of the now-infamous U.S. Capitol riot, Inslee opined that "the threat to our democracy is just as dangerous on January 6, 2022, as it was a year ago."  "I think we do need to do much more than commemorate this day of infamy," he said as part of the Associated Press' 2022 legislative preview.  "I think we need to realize that this is a continuing effort to continue the 'big lie,' to cast doubt on the fundamental workings of our democracy — we simply have to realize the nature of this challenge."

The Editor says...
The candidates and officials will still be able to "spread unfounded allegations" (lie) about anything else, but questioning an obviously stolen election will be strictly forbidden.  This sounds like the easiest way to commit voting fraud:  Cheat all you like, then prohibit any dissent.

There Was No Insurrection But There Was A Coup.  The moment the coup began to reveal itself Americans knew something was amiss.  Many went to bed on November 3rd believing that Trump was leading in enough states to secure an electoral victory, including in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, and Wisconsin.  Strangely, however, while America slept, densely populated Democrat counties like Fulton (Atlanta) in Georgia and Allegheny (Pittsburgh) in Pennsylvania "stopped counting" votes only to "restart" later when Biden suddenly got enough votes to swing the state blue.  Similarly, Philadelphia stopped "reporting" at 1 AM and later announced Biden had won the state.  The morning of the 4th, as cries of fraud came from red areas across the country, the side that cried "election fraud" for four years suddenly fell silent.  Apparently, 2020 had become the "most legitimate election in American history".  Joseph Stalin said, "Those who vote decide nothing.  Those who count the vote decide everything."  That's exactly how we went from being a constitutional republic to a banana republic, but rather than the United Fruit Company or the CIA running the coup, it was Mark Zuckerberg, Democrats, the FBI, and the media.

Peaceful Demands For Secure Elections Do Not Constitute 'Insurrection'.  On the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, the corporate media is working overtime to convince the American public that Republicans as a whole stormed the nation's beacon of democracy at the beginning of 2021 and have waged a war on all that is good and decent.  While lunatics and fools did invade the Capitol last January, tens of thousands of Americans peacefully assembled to demand answers from the government about what they believed to be the sloppiest election in which they've ever voted.  Political violence should always be condemned, but a majority of the people present in Washington, D.C., and on the Capitol grounds on Jan. 6 weren't violent.  Yes, hundreds of people stormed the U.S. Capitol in a riot, but tens of thousands of people of all ages, races, backgrounds, and lifestyles gathered together that day at the Save America Rally to protest the Democrats' sleazy election manipulation and hear from President Donald Trump.

Georgia Ballot Trafficking Whistleblower Admits to Making $45,000 for Stuffing Ballot Boxes — Just One of 242 Traffickers.  The Georgia ballot trafficking whistleblower reportedly admitted to making $45,000 for stuffing Georgia ballot boxes from 2 to 5 AM in the morning.  He was just one of 242 alleged ballot traffickers identified by the True the Vote investigation.  There is a possibility of HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of ballots that were stuffed into the ballot boxes in Georgia!  Radio host John Fredericks went on with Steve Bannon on The War Room on Wednesday morning [1/5/2022] after news broke last night that a ballot trafficker had started talking in Georgia after he was paid thousands of dollars for stuffing the ballot boxes in a massive ballot harvesting scheme in Georgia.

Georgia Announces New Investigation Into Suspected 2020 Election Fraud Involving Over 200 Left-wing Activists.  Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is not exactly an ally of former President Donald Trump when it comes to 2020 election fraud.  But on Tuesday, Raffensperger surprised election observers by suddenly announcing an investigation into suspected illegal ballot harvesting.  The election fraud investigation is based on video surveillance footage and geolocation data from the cell phones of over 200 activists that allegedly participated in an illegal ballot harvesting ring involving "drop boxes," also known as "Zuckerberg boxes."  Brad Raffensperger, who is seeking re-election, confirmed the investigation to Just the News, and asserted that he may soon issue subpoenas to secure evidence.  Georgia law "strictly prohibits third-party activists from picking up and delivering ballots on behalf of voters," a tactic called "ballot harvesting," the news website notes.  Left-wing organizers in a number of red states have tried to get the suspect election practice legalized but have run into opposition from the state legislatures and the courts.  The U.S. Supreme Court rejected efforts to overturn an Arizona election integrity law that outlawed ballot harvesting, the report added.

This action is about a year overdue:
Georgia opens investigation into possible illegal ballot harvesting in 2020 election.  Georgia authorities have launched an investigation into an allegation of systematic ballot harvesting during the state's 2020 general election and subsequent U.S. Senate runoff and may soon issue subpoenas to secure evidence, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger confirmed to Just the News.  Georgia law strictly prohibits third-party activists from picking up and delivering ballots on behalf of voters, a tactic called "harvesting" that liberal organizers have tried to get legalized in many battleground states without success.  The U.S. Supreme Court this summer rejected Democrat efforts to overturn an Arizona law that outlawed harvesting in the battleground state.  Raffensperger, who is seeking reelection in 2022, led a successful effort in 2019 to strengthen Georgia's prohibition against harvesting ahead of the 2020 presidential election, and defeated an effort by prominent Democrat lawyer Marc Elias to overturn the harvesting ban.  Raffensperger also reviewed and rejected claims by former President Donald Trump of widespread fraud during the 2020 election in a series of contacts under investigation by a local district attorney in Atlanta and the Jan. 6 select committee in Congress.

Georgia Begins Probe of Illegal 2020 Ballot Harvesting.  State officials in Georgia are now investigating allegations that ballot harvesting — a practice that's unlawful in the state — was used widely during the November 2020 general election and the U.S. Senate runoff elections that followed two months later.  The allegations originated from good-government group True the Vote, which has promised to release other information on voting irregularities in five other states.  Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, confirmed to John Solomon of Just the News that a probe is underway and that subpoenas from the state's election board may soon follow as part of the evidence-gathering process.

Politico Revels in Democrat Plan to Politicize January 6 Anniversary to Federalize Elections.  The media is already being flooded with stories this week about the solemnity of the January 6 anniversary.  And yet we also have Politico reveling that the Democrats are attempting to use the occasion to engage in flat out partisanship by federalizing the elections at the state level so as to favor that party.

Conservatives must be ready to deal with Democrats cheating in the 2022 midterms.  I hate to ruin the party, but don't count your chickens before they are hatched.  I won't say Biden won the 2020 presidential election, but please notice that he takes his naps in the Oval Office these days.  He didn't get there by winning a free and fair election.  There is nothing democratic about the Democrat party.  Since his popularity is sinking, primarily because of bad policies, he — or some other very left-wing democrat — will have to cheat big time to get four more years in the White House.  They wouldn't do that again, would they?  Of course they would.  They know they cheated, and they know we know they cheated.  And they know that cheating worked for them.  In the bind they are in now, they know that the only way to hold onto the levers of power is to cheat again.

Texas Election Audit Phase 1 Progress Report Is Released — Shows 700K Ineligible Voter Registrations.  The Texas Phase 1 audit of the 2020 election in a sample of four major counties was released on New Year's Eve.  The Phase 1 Progress Report was released on Friday in the Full Forensic Audit of the November 2020 General Election.  The report shows 700,000 ineligible voter registrations. [...] Statewide, a total of 11,737 potential non-U.S. citizens were identified as being registered to vote.  Of these, 327 records were identified in Collin County, 1,385 in Dallas County, 3,063 in Harris County, and 708 in Tarrant County.  Since November 2020, 224,585 deceased voters have been removed from the voter rolls in Texas.  Collin County removed 4,889 deceased voters, Dallas County removed 14,926 deceased voters, Harris County removed 23,914 deceased voters, and Tarrant County removed 13,955 deceased voters.

Texas election audit identifies nearly 12,000 foreigners suspected of registering to vote.  An audit of Texas voter rolls identified nearly 12,000 non-citizens suspected of illegally registering to vote and nearly 600 cases in which ballots may have been cast in the name of a dead resident or by a voter who may also have voted in another state.  Texas Secretary of State John Scott released the findings of the first phase of his audit on the last day of 2021, announcing 224,585 deceased residents were removed from state voters rolls as a result of the review[.]  Statewide, a total of 11,737 potential non-U.S. citizens were identified as being registered to cast ballots, with the lion's share located in the counties around Texas two largest cities of Houston and Dallas.  It is illegal for foreigners to vote in Texas elections.

Were Undocumented Ballots The Reason For Fraud at Detroit's TCF Center?  The Michigan Citizens for Election Integrity (MC4EI) is completing a year-long deep dive into the 2020 General Election in Detroit.  A 100 Percent Fed Up and Gateway Pundit Exclusive — On Thursday, in another preview of their upcoming report, TCF Timeline: the 2020 General Election in Detroit, we brought you the first of a three-part series detailing the shocking treatment of GOP challengers inside Detroit's Absent Voter Counting Board (AVCB). [...] Certainly, the challengers' affidavits are replete with allegations of every kind of fraud — from workers filling out blank ballots to tabulation of ballots from other counties.  But was there a type of fraud, or more subtly, an election law violation that could protect fraud, that occurred in significant magnitude to move the needle in Michigan?

Am I sick?  COVID testing lines stretch for hours.  Fifteen minutes before the WellNow Urgent Care opened on Thursday [12/30/2021], a line stretched past the office, the next two stores and wrapped around the corner to the far side of the building.  Every person there was waiting for a COVID-19 test, five days after Christmas celebrations that may have spread the virus rapidly.  COVID-19 cases are surging again, likely driven by the more contagious omicron variant, and people are now coming out in droves seeking tests.

The Editor says...
As many others have pointed out, the eagerness to get Covid testing — even if it means standing in line in cold weather with a bunch of strangers who may be sick — is proof that mail-in voting isn't necessary because of Covid.

Wisconsin Election Committee Makes New Demands After Alleged Voter Roll Chaos.  Republicans on the Wisconsin Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections are making demands for information regarding the state's voting rolls and who had access to them, given the unprecedented involvement of partisan groups in the election process.  In a Dec. 22 letter, committee chair state Rep. Janel Brandtjen and five other members called for the administrator of the Wisconsin Elections Commission, Meagan Wolfe, to turn over several pieces of information.  "We are concerned that Wisconsin's voter rolls and voting system remain secure, protected and accurate," the lawmakers wrote.  Brandtjen sought to know on what servers voter identification data are stored and the type of database used to manage it.  She also asked to know who designed and built the database, who had access to it and all affiliated logs and registries.

Senate Republicans Move to Ban Federal Funds From States, Cities That Allow Illegal Aliens to Vote.  Let's begin with a basic premise that should be supported by every loyal citizen of every country on the planet:  Non-citizens should not be allowed to vote in elections.  Period.  That should not even be a question.  Unless you're a Congressional Democrat, that is.  In that case, undocumented Democrats are your thing.  As reported by John Solomon's Just the News, the issue of "non-citizen" voting first came to a boil big-time at the end of the 2018 Georgia governor's race, when Democrat Stacey Abrams suggested the "blue wave" of voters she hoped would put in her office included the "documented and undocumented," the latter a ridiculous Democrat term for illegal aliens.  Abrams denied she was referring to illegal aliens.  However, last time I checked my Democrat decoder ring, "undocumented" was code for "illegal."  Meanwhile, cities in at least three states have authorized illegal aliens to vote, while Georgia ponders a constitutional amendment to ban it.

Biden shifts COVID fearmongering narrative to 'voter suppression'.  President Biden seems to be giving up on his federal COVID vaccine mandate, handing those decisions back to the individual states, while he pivots to laying the groundwork for blaming Republicans for voter suppression in the looming 2022 midterm election wipeout that is on the horizon.  "When it comes to voter suppression, it's no longer just about making it easy for eligible people to vote — it's about whether or not those votes will count at all.  It's simple:  voter suppression is un-American, un-democratic, and unpatriotic," Biden tweeted.  Democrats are expected to get walloped in the 2022 midterm elections due to Biden's unpopularity and his disastrous policies.  He appears to be laying the groundwork to blame Republicans for not federalizing elections, calling it by the misnomer "voter suppression."

One third of Americans still believe Biden's election win was illegitimate.  One-third of Americans think more than a year after the 2020 election that Joe Biden did not legitimately win against Donald Trump, a new poll found.  The University of Massachusetts Amherst poll, taken December 14-20, shows 33 percent of the 1,000 respondents either definitely or probably think President Biden's win was illegitimate.  Forty-six percent think his win was definitely legitimate, another 12 percent think it was probably legitimate and 9 percent are unsure.

Republicans move to ban federal funds to states, cities that allow non-citizens to vote.  Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., is leading a coalition of Republicans in Congress to sponsor legislation that would ban federal funding to states or localities that allow foreigners to vote in U.S. elections.  The new legislation, dubbed the Protecting Our Democracy by Preventing Foreign Citizens from Voting Act, was introduced after many liberal municipalities from San Francisco to New York have moved in 2021 to allow non-citizens to cast ballots in local elections[.]  "It's ridiculous that states are allowing foreign citizens to vote," Rubio said.  "However, if states and localities do let those who are not U.S. citizens to vote in elections, they shouldn't get U.S. citizen taxpayer money."  The measure is being cosponsored by GOP Sens. Steve Daines of Montana, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, John Kennedy, of Louisiana, Rick Scott of Florida and James Lankford, R-Oklahoma.  Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., plans to introduce companion legislation in the House.

Whistleblower Claims 35,000 Votes Were Added To Democrat Totals In Pima County's 2020 Election.  Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem read a letter from a whistleblower who claims Democrat operatives added 35,000 votes to Democrat candidates during Pima County's election integrity hearing held this week.  Election integrity advocate Mark Finchem read from an email previously "included in some of the testimony and evidence" from the famous election integrity hearing held on November 30 of last year.  According to Finchem, this email "sets the stage" for election integrity efforts.  Finchem says the letter was dated November 10, 2020, and "is addressed to the criminal division at the U.S. Department of Justice."

Entering The American Twilight Zone.  We didn't know it then, but on Election Night, November 8, [sic] 2020, America entered a Twilight Zone every bit as eerie and unanticipated as anything dreamed up by Rod Serling decades earlier.  It began with time standing still in the middle of the Election Night vote count, followed by a flood of outlandish vote totals being relayed to us, especially from Democrat strongholds in 7 swing states.  Then there was the alacrity with which network analysts declared Biden the winner, especially, the Fox news early projection of a Biden win in Arizona. [...] Despite the 2020 election's irregularities, which were legion, the next two months, leading up to the January 6 Capitol Hill debacle, were a study in media manipulation.  Virtually every organ and institution of public information joined hands to create a bum's rush of legitimacy for Scranton Joe's historic victory.  Not only was there an unprecedented (and unbelievable) turn out of voters, with Trump receiving 8 million more votes than any preceding sitting president, while the bumbling, lackluster, boring, invisible Biden, with no hint at any time in his political career of an excited public following, bested Trump by an additional 7 million votes.

Fight to clean voter lists gains ground after 2020 election.  The Public Interest Legal Foundation went to Pennsylvania with a list of tens of thousands of people who were likely dead, but still on the state's voter rolls in the weeks before the 2020 election.  The state was totally uninterested, according to Christian Adams, the organization's founder.  But once the election was over, Mr. Adams says, the state changed its tune.  It went into mediation with PILF, agreed to look into the list and even agreed to a settlement paying some of the group's lawyers' fees.  The kicker, though, was that Pennsylvania prosecutors even brought charges against a man who, according to PILF's data, had registered his dead wife to vote, then requested her ballot in the 2020 election.  "All of the sudden they're happy to settle, and to clean up their rolls," Mr. Adams told The Washington Times.

The Wisconsin Purchase.  What happened in 2020 involved a highly coordinated and privately funded "shadow campaign" for Joe Biden that took place within the formal structure of the election system itself.  Through the injection of over $419 million of Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan's money, laundered through the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) and the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), the professional left presided over a targeted, historically unprecedented takeover of government election offices by nominally nonpartisan, but demonstrably ideological, nonprofit organizations and activists in key areas of swing states such as Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.  Our research shows that CTCL spending in Wisconsin generated enough votes for Joe Biden to secure him an Electoral College win there in 2020.  We estimate that CTCL spending in Wisconsin purchased Joe Biden an additional 65,222 votes, without which Donald Trump would have won the state by 44,540 votes.  Although CTCL and CEIR are chartered as non-partisan 501(c)(3) corporations, our research shows that the $419.5 million of CTCL and CEIR spending that took place in 2020 was highly partisan in its distribution, and highly partisan in its effects.

Maryland Democrats Sued Over 'Extreme' Gerrymandering Of 2022 Congressional Maps.  Fair Maps Maryland, a nonpartisan organization founded to eliminate partisan gerrymandering, filed suit Thursday to stop the implementation of the Maryland General Assembly's proposed 2022 Congressional map.  The lawsuit alleges that the map, passed along party lines by the Democratic supermajority in the General Assembly, violates the Maryland state constitution and Declaration of Rights.  State Democratic lawmakers approved a map over Republican objections that solidifies Democratic control of seven of the state's eight Congressional districts, and makes the single Republican district more competitive.

Pennsylvania court allows inspection of Dominion voting machines in one county.  Dominion voting machines in Fulton County, Pennsylvania, will be sent to the state Senate for inspection next month following a ruling by the commonwealth court, according to a press release Thursday [12/23/2021] by The Amistad Project.  "The court recognized that it was improper to demand that the county — which owns the machines, and has the responsibility of running the election along with the legislature — can't determine whether the machines worked properly," Amistad Project Director Phill Kline said.  "As the judge noted, there's no justification for preventing the county from looking at their own machines."  The inspection was scheduled for Dec. 22, but Democratic Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro and Democratic Secretary of the Commonwealth Veronica Degraffenreid sued to prevent it.  The judge ruled the investigation must go forward, but he allowed a short delay for both sides to determine a formal protocol for the inspection, which is scheduled for Jan. 10, 2022.

Senator Sinema Stops Biden's Plan To Nationalize Federal Election Laws.  As 2022 approaches, Democrats are privately and publicly expressing their frustration with two of their U.S. Senators who continue to back crucial legislation from passing.  Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) recently wrecked President Biden's hopes of destroying federal election integrity laws by not supporting HR 1 or ending the Senate filibuster.  Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) just crushed Biden's hope of getting his Build Back Better (BBB) massive spending bill passed.  Biden has been pushing to radically federalize elections, in spite of the Constitution.

Joe Biden Backs Plan to Rig an Election His Party Is Favored to Lose.  The Democrats' legislation not only bans voter ID laws that are key to election security, but it also endorses ballot harvesting, uses taxpayer money to fund political campaigns, mandates same-day registration with no safeguards, makes mail-in voting universal, automatically registers minors, legalizes so-called "drive-thru" voting, and even sets up a system where ballots are allowed to be counted if they arrive 10 days after an election.  There is simply no justification for passing an illegitimate power grab over the nation's election systems, and in my opinion, no justification could ever exist in any circumstance.  We are a republic, and localized control of elections is a bedrock principle of our system.  Besides, can anyone point out what has happened in the last year that requires a complete overhaul of our voting systems?  Democrats just made up the need for this out of thin air, and now they proclaim the country will die on the vine if it's not passed.

Here There Be Monsters.  Prior to 2020 Joe Biden barely rose to "also ran" status in U.S. presidential elections.  During his decades in public office his reputation became fixed as slow-witted, unprincipled, self-promoting, gaff-prone, and vindictive.  While such characteristics may extend one's term in a corrupt edifice, they do not otherwise enhance one's appeal.  Nonetheless, amid mountains of evidence of electoral fraud and skullduggery, we're told to believe that more Americans than ever voted for Biden.  This despite his hiding out in a basement rather than campaigning, while garnering meager crowds on those rare occasions where he was present.  We are assured by the dubious vote-counters that his opponent lost.  An opponent who precipitated tens of thousands of enthusiastic supporters on the mere rumor of his appearing, achieved economic and political results that had for decades been called impossible by the political establishment, all in the face of unparalleled invective and resistance from the "mainstream" media and our federal bureaucracy.  Bigfoot riding a unicorn was more credible.  Various polls suggest a big Republican majority, most independents, and as much as a third of Democrats believe the 2020 election was fraudulent.

New Videos Capture Pennsylvania Officials Hiding Evidence Of Alleged Election Fraud.  New whistleblower videos capture Delaware County, Pennsylvania officials plotting to recreate missing election data from the November 2020 contest, with one official later bragging that the local Democrat district attorney "owes him."  These recordings represent the latest evidence of the alleged fraud officials in the Pennsylvania county undertook to hide widespread violations of the state's election laws, according to a source familiar with the recordings.  Whistleblower Regina Miller, who worked as a contract employee for Delaware County, secretly recorded the behind-the-scenes videos of election officials after witnessing concerning conduct, according to sources with knowledge of a fraud lawsuit filed last month against county election officials, based in part on the recordings.  That lawsuit alleged county election officials destroyed election data in response to a May 21, 2021 Right to Know Request filed with Delaware County that requested the final certified return sheets from the Nov. 3, 2020 general election for all Delaware County precincts, as well as the tapes from the voting machines.

What Happened in These States When Unelected Bureaucrats Took Over Redistricting.  In Michigan, the state's civil rights agency said proposed maps of legislative districts "do not measure up to the requirements of the law."  In Pennsylvania, Republican lawmakers complained about an "extreme partisan gerrymander." And in Virginia, incumbents and potential challengers scrambled to work with proposed district maps.  In theory, new bureaucracies to draw up maps for congressional and legislative districts were supposed to save democracy from politics and block the practice of gerrymandering.  But this month has seen controversies on multiple fronts regarding the independent redistricting commissions involved.  When Virginia voters approved its redistricting commission in 2020, that made a total of 10 states that have a commission with primary responsibility for drawing both congressional and state legislative districts, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Crowd Demands Arizona Attorney General Take Action Regarding Alleged Fraud in 2020 Election.  A crowd of more than 100 people rallied outside the office of Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich in Phoenix on Dec. 17 to demand the prosecution of any criminal activity associated with the 2020 election in Maricopa County.  A contingent of police offers kept people off the front steps of the Attorney General's office building except for event organizers and speakers.  Those gathered called out not only for fair and honest elections but that Brnovich begin criminal prosecutions for alleged wrongdoing stemming from the 2020 election in Maricopa County, Arizona's most populous county with over 2.5 million registered voters.  Arizona state Rep. Mark Finchem (R) said that there "was at least probable cause if not clear and convincing evidence that we had significant discrepancies in the election."

IRS Filing Confirms:  Zuckerberg Grantee Spent $332 Million for 'Local Election Administration' in 2020.  A compliance document filed with the Internal Revenue Service by the Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) confirms the nonprofit spent $332 million in "grants and other assistance to domestic organizations and domestic governments" in the 2020 election to "increase civic participation by modernizing engagement between local gov[ernment] and the people they serve."  As Breitbart News reported in October 2020, "Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Tuesday that he and his wife have donated an additional $100 million to a 'safe elections' project run by the non-profit Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL), bringing their total contributions to that project to $350 million since September 1."
