If anyone would know about Big City Dems stealing elections, it’s this guy:
Partial transcript via Breitbart:
Blagojevich told Newsmax TV’s “John Bachman Now” that Democratic stronghold cities changing vote counts overnight, and controlling polling places is a “time-honored tradition.” He went on to say that Democrats “stealing the presidency” is “incredibly dangerous to our democracy.”
“If the question is are the Democrats stealing votes in Philadelphia, my answer is, ‘Is the Pope Catholic?’ It’s a time-honored tradition,” Blagojevich emphasized. “Big Democrat-controlled cities like Chicago, my hometown, Philadelphia, to do precisely what they’re doing now I’ve never seen such a magnitude because this I think is an indication of just how widespread it is, how deep it is. And I don’t think it’s just confined to Philadelphia. My instincts, again coming out of Chicago Democratic politics, my instincts tell me it’s going on in Atlanta, it’s going on in Detroit, it’s going on in Milwaukee, it’s going on in Las Vegas. It’s like what Justice Powell said about pornography: You can’t define it, but you know when you see it. And coming out of the Democratic Chicago political establishment, I know how they operate. They control polling places, they stop votes when their candidate’s behind, and then in the wee hours of the morning, in the dark of night, the stealing starts.”
He continued, “And we’ve seen that in big numbers, unprecedented numbers in this election in Michigan and Philadelphia. It’s outrageous, and the fact that they’re doing it with impunity they’re doing it with is because the media is simply looking the other way because they have their corrupt mainstream media that’s not interested in protecting our Constitution or the rule of law. They just want to beat Donald Trump at all costs, and they’re not just stealing from Donald Trump. It’s worse than that. They’re stealing from us — the American people.”
Yes, Blago might be biased because Trump recently pardoned him and got him out of prison six years early. He had been serving a 14-year sentence that began in 2012 after being convicted of corruption for trying to sell-off Barack Obama’s former Senate seat after Obama won the Presidency in 2008. (I’m sure Obama had nothing to do with that.)
So take Blago’s comments for what you will. Still, something tells me he knows a thing or two about how “vote counting” works in big cities like Chicago. This man was twice elected governor of Illinois and is undoubtedly highly familiar with urban machine politics.
I fear this is misleading, and that Barr is tanking any possible investigation.
The Supreme Court ruled that the desegregation challenged in Brown vs. Board of Ed. must end “with all deliberate speed.” The lawyers challenging segration were initially thrilled — it sounded like the court was ordering desgregation at maximum speed. But then they looked up “deliberate” — which of course means “considered, careful, slow.” So what at first glance looked like a mandate to desegregate immediately actually meant “when caution and consideration permit.”
An order to investiage “substantial allegations” of voter fraud may sound bad-ass. But what is it really saying? Is it saying “investigate any allegation”?
No. It’s saying to only investigate the “substantial” allegations — which I take to mean the allegations which already, without any investigation, have substantial evidence to support them, and/or which are “substantial” in the sense that the allegation, if proven, would reverse the race. On its own.
So I see “substantial” as being a limitation on lawyers’ mandate to investigate. A double limitation — a Democrat DOJ lawyer (and almost all of the career attorneys are in fact Democrats) as far as both evidence already, pre-investigation, that exists, and as far as the allegations’ ability to overturn the election in and of itself, not considered in combination with other allegations.
So my fear is that Barr wrote a directive that will be used by Democrat DOJ lawyers to reject the need for any investigation into almost any — or maybe just any — allegation. They’ll say “Nope, can’t investigate this one, not a ‘substantial’ amount of evidence for it at the moment.”
Now, it’s up to investigators to find such evidence, but here it’s an out to not bother looking in the first place.
If I had ordered this — and if I wanted a real investigation — I might have said, “all plausible, nontrivial allegations of voter fraud.” I would limit the limitation — not expand the limitation.
I hope I’m wrong.
But I don’t think I am. I think this is quite deliberate, and the wording was selected to give the impression of a full investigation, while actually being crafted to insure almost no investigation at all.
I hope Ace is wrong. But I just have no faith whatsoever in the federal government. I think they’ve been planning on getting rid of Trump for the past 4 years, and now they are so close they can taste it. They’re going to power ahead. Barr will not come to our rescue.
With Trump now promising a recount as he’s down about 20k votes in Wisconsin and about 70k votes in Michigan, people have started to point out that a such margins are too steep to realistically be changed by a recount:
I mean, it does make sense. At least in a vacuum.
But the 2020 election is not a normal election.
Due to mass mail-in voting, turnout in this election is significantly higher than in any previous election.
In 2016, about 128.8 million people voted.
In 2012, about 126.8 million people voted.
In 2008, about 129.5 million people voted.
As of right now, however, and with the full results not even in yet, the total tally for the 2020 election is about 139 million total voters. It’ll absolutely go over 140 million before all is said and done.
Now, a small portion of that increase is due to population growth between 2016 and now, but most of that is due to increased voter participation via mail-in ballots.
This is exactly what the Democrats wanted: they knew people weren’t excited about Biden, but they figured that if they mailed ballots out to as many voters as possible, then they’d get a lot more people to vote simply because it was so low-effort to do so. Just fill your ballot out and mail it back in without ever having to leave your house. No dealing with long lines or any of the headaches that are part of the voting experience.
Now, of course, this also boosted turnout for Trump, but not by as much as it helped Biden. Because Trump voters were already highly motivated and eager to vote for him. Many Trump voters would do anything to cast their ballot for him.
But one of the other side-effects of mass mail-in balloting was that it would significantly increase the prevalence of vote fraud. I’ve been discussing this on the site for several months now, as have many others.
With no uniform standards nationwide regarding deadlines for mail-in ballots, it opened up the possibility (and I would argue probability) that mail-in votes would be coming in for days after the election. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court even ruled that the state can count ballots that arrive after election day with no postmark. It’s on page 27 at the link, but you can see the relevant text here:
So in reality, voting doesn’t technically “end” in PA until Friday. And since there is no requirement for ballots to be post-marked before election day, there is essentially nothing stopping political activists from filling out ballots after Election Day and all the way up to Friday if need be. Because they all “enjoy a presumption that they were mailed by Election Day.”
This opens up the possibility for massive voter fraud. I am not a legal expert and know nothing of campaign/election law. I don’t have a law degree. However, if I had to guess, I would say the Trump campaign’s lawsuits will be targeting this court ruling specifically in order to get any ballot not clearly postmarked for election day thrown out.
But that’s just my best guess.
State laws in PA, WI and MI prohibited vote counters from counting the mail-in ballots prior to election day, even the ones that had already arrived. So on Election Day, they had to count all the votes from that day plus all the early votes, all at the same time.
Now why would they make such a ridiculous law? Because they wanted to see how many votes they were behind on election night so they could then fabricate the requisite amount. They wanted to jam up the process to ensure they were behind on the vote counts. They wanted to be the last ones to submit their results so that they could ensure they’d be able to scrounge up enough “John Doe” votes for Biden to put him over the line.
There is no legitimate reason those three states shouldn’t have have been able to finish their vote-counting in a timely fashion the way Florida, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, New Jersey, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri–do you get where I’m going with this? If Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania had gotten their vote counts finalized and reported in a similar time frame to other states in the eastern time zone, then Democrat fixers in Milwaukee, Detroit and Philly would not have been able to
While Scott Walker was correct that past recounts have only resulted in shifts of about a few hundred votes at max, this election is totally different given the massive number of mail-in ballots and, accordingly, the massively increased likelihood of voter fraud.
I saw this email going somewhat viral on Twitter today. It was shared by Alex Berenson, someone I’ve been following since the Covid stuff broke out, and it sheds some light on exactly how mail-in vote fraud work:
“The problem with unregulated ballot harvesting is that it makes it easier for bad actors to engage in ballot fraud on a previous unprecedented scale.”
And that’s the key difference between 2020 and any prior election. The scale of the fraud could well be in the tens of thousands of votes in multiple states.
Given the way everything went down last night–Trump looking good all night, suddenly vote-counting stops, then massive troves of ballots magically appear for Biden in the wee hours of the morning–it is not outlandish or crazy at all for Republicans to be demanding recounts and vote audits.
Even with a recount, however, there are major questions:
Who is conducting the recount? Is it the same people who presided over the initial vote count?
What standards and rules are in place to identify and throw-out invalid ballots?
Will the Trump campaign’s representatives be allowed to be present for the whole process?
Will every single ballot be audited and reviewed to ensure validity?
It seems like a recount in multiple states will be potentially an even bigger shit-show than election night itself.
However, given the unprecedented potential for fraud this year and the questionable circumstances in multiple states, if a recount is conducted fairly (my friends and I joked that we should bring in a neutral nation like Switzerland to oversee the whole process), then it’s possible Trump may be able to pull this out.
Bigger picture, we might just have to come to grips the fact that America now has a thoroughly rotten and corrupted third-world style political system. We’re no better than any country out there. Maybe this is what makes this so hard to accept: the sudden realization that we’re just as corrupt as the other countries around the world we joke about.
It’s not much reassurance, I know, but the thing is, it has always been this way in this country, and we’ve always managed to survive. I’ll go over a few examples of stolen elections in American history:
The 1824 election
There were four candidates on the ballot that year, Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams, William H. Crawford and Henry Clay. Because the vote was split four ways, no candidate received a majority in the electoral college (or the popular vote, but that doesn’t count for anything).
However, Andrew Jackson had won the most electoral votes (99) and a plurality of the popular vote (41.4%). John Quincy Adams came in second in both, with 84 electoral votes and 30.9% of the popular vote. Crawford was in third place with 41 EVs and 11.2% of the PV, while Clay finished fourth with 37 EVs and 13% of the PV.
Clearly Andrew Jackson was the most popular candidate, but because he did not pass the requisite 131 EVs needed to win the presidency, the election was sent to the House of Representatives to decide.
(Had Trump and Biden tied at 269 EVs this year, the same thing would’ve happened. In the House, all the Representatives vote, but it’s not based on simple majority: it’s based on a tally of states. So let’s say there are 3 Democratic Representatives in a state and 2 Republicans: the vote would go to the Democrats because the majority of Representatives in that state voted for the Democrat.)
Now, Andrew Jackson was in many ways the Donald Trump of his time: a rough-around-the-edges outsider who was viciously despised by the political establishment, and beloved by the common folk. He was never supposed to come anywhere near the White House. The similarities between himself and Jackson are not lost on Trump, either: he put a portrait of Jackson in the Oval Office almost immediately after being inaugurated. John Quincy Adams, on the other hand, was the son of former President and Founding Father John Adams. He was a blueblood. He was from Massachusetts–one of the most powerful states at the time–while Jackson was from Tennessee, which was a newly-formed frontier state and considered a backwater full of hicks and savages. Does any of this sound familiar?
The election remained disputed for months. On February 5, 1825, the House convened and voted for the President. Because there were 24 states at the time, 13 were need to form a majority and win. John Quincy Adams finished with 13 votes, while Jackson–the people’s choice–got 7. Crawford got 4, Clay got zero since he was eliminated prior to the vote, having finished 4th. Adams became President despite the fact that only 30% of the country voted for him.
The Eastern Establishment banded together in support of Adams, while it was rumored that Henry Clay had struck a “corrupt bargain” with Adams in which Clay would tell his supporters to support Adams, and Adams, once President, would appoint Clay as the Secretary of State, which at the time was a very important spot and seen as essentially the next-in-line to be President. The three Presidents preceding John Quincy Adams–Monroe, Madison, Jefferson–had all served as Secretary of State immediately before becoming President.
Of course, as was rumored, Adams did in fact offer Clay the Secretary of State post, which Clay accepted. However, Andrew Jackson got the last laugh: he ran again in 1828 and absolutely demolished Adams in a groundswell of popular support and anger over the way 1824 had gone down.
1824 was probably the first “stolen election” in US history, but it certainly wouldn’t be the last.
The “Corrupt Bargain” of 1876
52 years after the first “corrupt bargain,” America’s Presidency would be decided by another. On election night in 1876, Democrat Samuel Tilden was ahead in the popular vote by a margin of 50.9% to 47.9%. However, he was one EV shy of the 185 majority needed to win the Presidency. Republican Rutherford B. Hayes had 165 EVs. Three southern states had disputed outcomes: Florida, Louisiana and South Carolina, and they totaled 19 EVs. On top of these three states, a “faithless elector” in Oregon cast his vote for Tilden even though Hayes had won the state.
Though the returns in the three disputed Southern states favored Tilden, there were allegations of voter intimidation, plus South Carolina’s vote totals represented 101% of eligible voters, which equals obvious fraud.
Deadlocked over the disputed states and neither party willing to concede, the two Presidential campaigns eventually met in late January of 1877 to figure out who would become President. Eventually they came to a “compromise” under which they would award the 20 disputed electoral votes to Republican Rutherford B. Hayes, making him president, in exchange for the Hayes administration promising to remove federal troops from the South, where they had been stationed since the end of the Civil War in 1865, thus bringing a formal end to Reconstruction. The deal included other provisions as well, but the main one was ending reconstruction.
So that’s how the 1876 election was decided: by a 15-man commission in a smoke-filled room in Washington.
The Likely-Stolen 1960 Election
This one, although not frequently brought up, is still within living memory for millions Americans.
While political junkies might know that the 1960 election featured probably the closest popular vote in history (Kennedy won by 112,827 votes nationwide, or 0.17%), many will look at the EV count (303 for Kennedy, 219 for Nixon) and assume it wasn’t really that close.
But it was. Kennedy won Illinois and its 27 EVs by a state-wide margin of 0.19% (8,858 votes) and he won Texas and its 24 EVs by a state-wide margin of 2% (46,257 votes). Had those states swung to Nixon, his 219 EVs would have instead been 270 and Nixon would have won the 1960 election.
It’s those two pivotal states where the pro-Kennedy fraud is most often alleged. Even NBC’s Andrea Mitchell recently referred to the 1960 election as “obviously stolen.” A 2016 documentary on the election plainly stated, “As the dead of Illinois cast their votes for Kennedy, there are more allegations of fraud in Texas.”
This was back in the heyday of the Daley Family political machine in Chicago, and it’s probably where Chicago gets its reputation as being a hotbed of voting fraud. The “dead voters” meme is a Chicago election-time staple: “Today we join our dearly departed in voting straight-ticket Democrat, ” goes the quip. “Vote early, vote often,” is another.
An investigative report named Earl Mazo who started poking around in Chicago after the election said, There was a cemetery where the names on the tombstones were registered and voted. I remember a house. It was completely gutted. There was nobody there. But there were 56 votes for [John F.] Kennedy in that house.“
Nixon had already conceded by the time Mazo was able to meet with him and share what he’d found. Nixon wanted to avoid a “constitutional crisis” during the height of the Cold War.
After an investigation in Chicago, 677 election officials were charged with fraud, but none were convicted. Later, in 1962, three election workers were found guilty and sentence to jail time over election fraud in Chicago in 1960.
As for Texas, Kennedy’s slim victory there is probably attributable to his running mate, “Landslide” Lyndon Johnson, at the time the powerful Senate Majority Leader. LBJ’s political career only got off the ground in the first place due to voter fraud, and his ability to deliver Texas for the Kennedy ticket is largely why the Kennedy’s chose him as a running mate despite their obvious hatred of one another.
The name “Landslide Lyndon” applies to LBJ in the same way that a 6′ 5″, 350lb biker dude is nicknamed “Tiny.” It’s ironic, tongue-in-cheek. LBJ won the 1948 Democratic Primary for Senate by just 87 after a ballot box stuffed full of votes for him was “discovered” in a tiny town called Alice down near the southern tip of the state:
When the dust settled, the new totals showed 202 additional voters, some of whom were deceased and buried in the local cemetery or were absent from the county on election day. These voters “lined up” in alphabetical order at the last minute, signed in the same blue ink in the same handwriting and all cast their ballots for LBJ.
The New York Times published an article July 30, 1977, titled “Ex-Official Says He Stole 1948 Election for Johnson”:
“The disclosure was made by Luis Salas, who was the election judge for Jim Well’s County’s Box 13, which produced just enough votes in the 1948 Texas Democratic primary runoff to give Mr. Johnson the party’s nomination for the United States Senate … ‘Johnson did not win that election – it was stolen for him and I know exactly how it was done,’ said Mr. Salas, now a lean, white-haired 76 year old … George B. Parr, the South Texas political leader whom Mr. Salas served for a decade, shot and killed himself in April of 1975. Mr. Johnson is dead and so is his opponent … Mr. Salas said he decided to break his silence in quest for ‘peace of mind’ … ‘I was just going along with my party’ … He said Mr. Parr ordered that 200-odd votes be added to Mr. Johnson’s total from Box 13.
“Mr. Salas said he had seen the fraudulent votes added in alphabetical order and had them certified then as authentic on order from Mr. Parr … Parr was the Godfather … He … could tell any election judge: ‘give us 80 percent of the vote, and the other guy 20 percent.’ We had it made in every election …”
The New York Times article continued:
“The Associated Press interviewed … a former agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, T. Keilis Dibrell … He confirmed Mr. Salas’ statement that the last 200 votes had been in alphabetical order’ … Mr. Dibrell said ‘Also, the last 202 names were made with the same colored ink, and in the same handwriting, whereas the earlier names in the poll list were written by different individuals and in different color inks.’
The final statewide count, including the Box 13 votes, gave Mr. Johnson an 87 vote margin … earning him the tongue-in-cheek nickname ‘Landslide Lyndon.’”
According to LBJ biographer Robert Caro, LBJ stole as many as 20,000 votes in that 1948 race, way more than just the 202 that Luis Salas admitted to.
It doesn’t take much imagination to venture that Johnson reached into his bag of tricks once again in the 1960 election, calling on his trusted good ol’ boys network in Texas to ensure he and Kennedy were on top when all the dust settled.
Over 60,000 ballots in Florida, most of them on punch cards, had registered no vote for president on the punch card readers. But on many of the punch cards, the little pieces of paper that get punched out when someone votes – known as chads – were still hanging by one, two or three corners and had gone uncounted. Gore went to court to have those ballots counted by hand to try to determine voter intent, as allowed by state law. Bush fought Gore’s request in court. While Gore won in the Florida State Supreme Court, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled at 10 p.m. on Dec. 12 that Congress had set a deadline of that date for states to choose electors, so there was no more time to count votes. Gore conceded the next day.
In addition, there was an issue of “butterfly ballots” (you can Google a picture) also in Florida, which were alleged to be confusing for voters and were subsequently blamed for Reform Party Candidate Pat Buchanan getting 3,000 votes in Palm Beach which Gore alleged were meant for him.
Bush ended up winning Florida by 527 votes total. Florida’s 25 EVs put Bush over the top and gave him 271 EVs.
The point I’m trying to make here is that politics has always been corrupt in America. We are not entering uncharted waters here. I wish it weren’t so, but this is the way things have always been.
I am not saying we should just give up and accept that we’re playing a rigged game. I still think Trump should exhaust every possible legal avenue he has here.
I am still hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst. That entails accepting the possibility that Trump could lose, which I have. And that’s what I’m trying to do here.
Do not for a minute assume that this is the first time in American history where there was funny business during a major election.
This is nothing new. We have to learn how to fight fire with fire. We have to be as hungry to win as the Democrats are.
I know a lot of Republicans think it’s the end of the world if we lose this election (it isn’t), but it’s the Democrats who are behaving as if they feel that way. They will stop at nothing to win.
See that jump that put them conveniently ahead, almost as if it was magic?
Similar in Michigan although not as significant and blatant a jump:
I don’t know how this can be allowed to happen without raising any alarms.
We’ve known this was coming for probably four years now, and yet somehow it’s still crushing to see it play out. The Democrats don’t care who knows they’re blatantly stealing this election.
“What are you gonna do about it?”
And we’re still not out of the woods in Georgia yet. Arizona is still being counted and the White House thinks they’ll pull ahead there to offset Wisconsin, but Arizona has already been called by Fox and AP for what it’s worth.
I guess we just have to trust Trump to fight this and get to the bottom of it.
And he is aware of what’s going on. He just tweeted this out, although Twitter censored it because they’re in on the steal:
He was responding to this:
I’ll include the image in full showing the massive jump for Biden in Michigan, although you’ll probably have to zoom in to see it:
This is just another way to visualize what the graphic at the top shows.
UPDATE: apparently the Michigan jump for Biden was caused by a “typo” and has since been corrected:
So instead of a 70k vote lead in Michigan Trump now has a 198k vote lead.
Whether this was truly a “typo” or they got caught in the act once Trump caught wind of it, we’ll never know.
This thing is being stolen in front of our eyes. The Democrats decided on November 9, 2016 to never lose an election again, and this is how they’re making good on that resolution.
We need to put a stop to this. I don’t know how but for the good of the country this cannot be allowed to fly.
Democrats are going to scream bloody murder because of their steadfast belief in the twin mantras of “EVERY VOTE MUST BE COUNTED” and “THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ELECTION FRAUD,” which when taken together enable them to steal elections.
But they’ll never understand, so who cares what they say?
Also, vote counting has mysteriously been put on hold out in Nevada. Trump was doing well there, so I’m sure Las Vegas Democrats are hard at work rigging that state.
It’s hard not to get a little depressed seeing this play out in real time. But take heart because we have Trump and he’s not going to go down without a fight. He ain’t Romney.
Trump just got done speaking. It’s 1:30 in the morning for me here in Chicago. But it’s pretty clear what’s happening, and Trump said it: the election just “stopped.” And he’s going to the Supreme Court to put an end to the funny business.
Florida counted their votes in a timely fashion. Texas did. California has. Ohio did. Indiana did. Illinois did. Minnesota did. New Jersey did.
But very curiously, the crucial swing states that would put Trump over the top–Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan with their combined 76 electoral votes–just suddenly cannot be decided.
Couting has ceased.
All of those states but Michigan were called on election night in 2016 other than Michigan which took a few days to finally be settled. No problems there.
But now those states can’t be called on election night 2020.
It’s all very strange.
But we know what’s happening: corrupt machine Democrats in deep-blue cities like Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit and Atlanta now know how far behind they are, and they are about to go to work “counting” enough “ballots” (aka fabricating them) in order to pull Biden into the lead in those states.
Notice how Fox News called Arizona for Biden even though there were something like 800-900k outstanding ballots left from election day which were expected to go 2:1 for Trump.
In states where Biden is in the lead, the election is called. Done. Finished. That’s a wrap. Trump loses the state.
In states where Trump is ahead, “Welllllll, Biden still has a chance here…”
North Carolina and Georgia should be called for Trump. They should’ve been called for him hours ago.
Trump is currently “behind” in the electoral votes 227-213 according to Decision Desk HQ. Add Georgia and NC to his total and he’s at 244. Add in Alaska, which will likely go his way, and he’s at 247. Then if you add in ME-2, which hasn’t been called yet but he’s leading and should win, he’s at 248.
At that point all he needs is 2 out of 3 of Wisconsin (10), Pennsylvania (20) and Michigan (16). Any combination of the three puts him over 270, regardless of what happens in Arizona and Nevada.
But wouldn’t you know, they’re just not ready to call PA, MI, WI, NC and GA.
Too much uncertainty!
It’s so obvious what’s happening. Democrats are scrounging up fake ballots that will hopefully pull them ahead in those states.
We all know it’s happening.
Precisely. They were each waiting to see how big Trump’s margin was in the rest of the state.
And look, Republicans: we have every right to be mad about this. Big City Democrats are the scum of the earth. They really are.
But this is who they are. It’s in their nature. How can we get mad at them for doing something we’ve been expecting them to do for months?
What we need to do is stop it instead of just complaining about it like helpless bystanders as they steal the Presidency.
Trump seems to be wise to what’s going on, which is reassuring. But there is so much corruption in this country–in the courts, in the Big Blue Cities.
We are not out of the woods here.
I’m wrapping up this article and it’s about 1:48am and right now here’s where we stand in the major states:
Pennsylvania: Trump up 14% with between 73%-87% of the vote counted (DDHQ for some reason can’t accurately specify how much of the vote is in so they provide a range–a pretty wide range at that). Trump’s lead is currently 719,270 votes in PA.
Michigan: Trump up 7.36% with between 68-80% of the vote in. Trump’s current lead: 276,707.
Wisconsin: Trump up 3.77% with between 87-99% of the vote in. Trump’s current lead: 110,839.
Georgia: Trump up 2.16% with >99% of the vote in. Trump’s current lead: 101,977.
North Carolina: Trump up 1.4% with >99% of the vote in. Trump’s current lead: 76,701.
Arizona: Trump is DOWN 4.95% with 81-97% of the vote in. Trump’s current DEFICIT: 130,665. However, Trump campaign insists that if they win at least 62% the election day ballots that are still yet to be counted, they will win the state.
That’s where we stand right now.
Those of you who have been around for long enough know how it usually goes: Republican lead tend to vanish, while Democratic leads are insurmountable. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a late swing from D to R in any state.
Trump needs to have lawyers and poll-watchers absolutely swarming places like Philadelphia, Phoenix, Milwaukee, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Atlanta and Charlotte.
They are going to steal these states from him if he doesn’t fight back here. I promise you that.
I’m sure you know it, too.
Dems are trying to say there’s “absentee” ballots from heavily D areas still outstanding in all these states.
This is bullshit. The mail-in ballots were the first to be counted. Because they came in prior to election day.
They already have these on hand. They’re just magically getting them in.
I said this earlier this year and it’s coming to fruition now: the Democrats were not prepared for Trump winning in 2016, so they weren’t prepared to steal the election on election night. They were completely blindsided. Up until like 2am they thought they could still win in 2016.
Afterwards, they resolved to be prepared for 2020: they were going to be ready. And you’re seeing that all play out right now.
Here we go: yesterday a judge in Pennsylvania “sided with Democrats” and ruled that ballots could be counted up to three days after Election Day:
Democrats in Pennsylvania get three days to forge enough ballots to drag Biden ahead in the state.
And now, this just in, in Michigan, they get two weeks:
Two whole weeks. Hopefully the election is in the bag already and Michigan isn’t a pivotal state, because this situation is completely and totally FUBAR now.
Republicans and Democrats are both accusing each other of planning to steal the election, but the Republican concerns are far more plausible and valid than the Democrats’.
Democrats’ case that the election will be stolen rests on either the oft-repeated “black voter suppression,” which is so stale it has become an election year tradition. They said it in 2016, 2012, 2008, 2004 and even 2000. But this is shown to be nonsense by the fact that the 2020 Trump campaign is making a push for black voters on a scale that no prior Republican presidential campaign has come anywhere close to. Trump’s polling numbers put him on track for the best Republican performance with black voters in four decades. He is constantly touting black job and economic gains that have come under his administration in an effort to cut into the Democrats’ lopsided margins with black voters. “Blexit” isn’t just a Twitter hashtag, it’s a full-fledged, registered 501(c)3 political action organization. Trump is genuinely trying to bring black Americans into the Republican tent in massive numbers.
The other Democratic theory–more like fantasy–is that Trump will simply refuse to leave the White House when he loses, which will then justify a military coup and/or a full-fledged violent revolution in the street. Again, this is all wishful thinking; since November 8, 2016, Democrats have been dreaming of one day seeing Trump arrested and escorted out of the White House in handcuffs. And they will seize on any excuse to riot in the streets.
None of these leftwing election theft theories hold any water. On the other hand, the Republicans are offering a simple, straightforward and plausible theory: that the Democrats are preparing to use unprecedented levels of easily-defrauded and highly fungible universal mail-in voting and post-Election Day ballot harvesting to pull Biden over the finish line once they have an idea of how far behind they are. Democrats are making a push for never-before-seen universal mail-in voting, which is highly susceptible to fraud.
Common sense would tell you that mail-in ballots should have a deadline before Election Day so that we can have a winner declared on Election Day. It’s not like people aren’t aware the election is coming up. People have had years to prepare for this. There is no good reason the deadline for mail-in ballots shouldn’t be a week or even two weeks prior to Election Day.
But there is a bad reason: because allowing ballots to be counted after Election Day allows Democrats to see how many votes they need to fabricate.
They’re setting up the steal before our very eyes and apparently there’s nothing that can be done about it.
Democrats are done with democracy. They’re not taking chances and allowing the people to decide the president ever again.
The media will not declare a winner on election night. I can almost guarantee that. Well, unless Biden wins on election night. Then it’ll be a wrap, a done deal, and any talk of waiting for mail-in ballots to be counted will be treated as “rejecting the results of the election,” “undermining the democratic process,” etc. etc.
If Trump is winning and declares victory, the media will point out that Biden refuses to concede, and since Biden is a Democrat, the media will portray Biden as reasonable and in the right. The media always takes the Democrats’ side no matter what, as you and I know.
You can get away with just about anything if the media has your back.
The media will not be treating the results like they normally do. They will not be saying “with 87% reporting in Michigan, we are projecting Donald Trump the winner” etc. They will portray election night as merely the beginning of the vote counting process. They’ll get viewers in the mindset that things will not be settled that night, even if Trump is up big.
The media and the Democrats will be working together. They’ve got a plan for how election night is going to go down, and they foreshadowed it yesterday with the “Red Mirage” stuff about how it’s going to appear Trump won big on election night, but then in the week following the election, mail-in ballots will slowly trickle in and pull Biden ahead of Trump. They will wait to see how many votes Biden needs in the key swing states, then they’ll get to work “counting” the mail-in votes. Their whole scheme to steal this election hinges on mail-in ballots, which are rife with potential for fraud.
For instance, how can election officials prevent people from voting twice? If I send in a mail-in ballot to one precinct, then vote in person on election day at another precinct, how are they going to catch the duplicate vote?
Former Nevada Senator Dean Heller (R) brought up this question in early August. An AP News article entitled “Elections official refutes claim that people can vote twice” actually provided few reassurances that there are safeguards in place to prevent people from voting twice, other than “it’s a felony to do so,” so obviously that settles it.
Here’s a few excerpts from the article:
Heller said that among his concerns was someone casting a vote by mail and then showing up at the polls to cast a ballot. Heller said he asked Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske what would happen if someone voted twice.
“I said, ‘That’s a felony. It has been for decades. What happens then?’ She says ‘Nothing,’” he said.
“We have an attorney general that won’t prosecute it,” Heller went on. “We had a former attorney general that was a Republican that refused to prosecute. So you can vote more than once.”
Cegavske’s office did not respond to questions about her conversation with Heller, but Deputy Secretary of State for Elections Wayne Thorley said, “Nevada has many protections in place to ensure elections are fair and accurate, including safeguards that ensure no voter is allowed to cast more than one ballot in any given election.”
Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford’s office said it “takes allegations of voter fraud extremely seriously” and “while voter fraud is rare, it undermines trust in our election system.”
What exactly are those “safeguards”?
Voters who are mailed a ballot in Nevada can only vote in person after they physically surrender their mailed ballot or sign an affirmation under penalty of perjury stating that they have not already voted, Thorley said.
This would seem to be a sensible solution: if you’re coming to vote in person on election day, then you have to bring your mail-in ballot that was mailed out to you prior to election day. No ifs, ands or buts. If a person shows up to the polls on election day and doesn’t have their mail-in ballot, sorry, take a hike.
But then there’s that exception to the rule: “or sign an affirmation under penalty of perjury that they have not already voted.” It’s that big “or” that’s the problem.
How will they know if you’ve already voted by mail? There would have to be a central vote-counting location where all the votes in the state are counted, and where names are recorded. It has to be digitized with all voters’ names crossed off the list after their ballots are counted, that way the system can throw out duplicate ballots.
And does anyone have any confidence that Democratic prosecutors will prosecute people who try to vote for Democrats more than once? Given this plus the backdoor option of “signing an affirmation under penalty of perjury that they have not already voted,” it’s hard to have a lot of confidence in states’ abilities to prevent double voting.
In 2017, the Government Accountability Institute (“GAI,” lol) conducted a study on duplicate voting in the 2016 election and found 7,271 instances of inter-state duplicate voting (meaning someone who voted in two states) and 1,200 instances of intra-state duplicate voting (meaning someone voted twice in the same state). Since the GAI was only granted access to voter rolls in 21 states, they extrapolated the figures out to the whole country and estimated they would have uncovered around 45,000 cases of duplicate voting, both inter- and intra-state combined.
45,000 fraudulent votes would not quite have been enough to swing the 2016 election, but it would have been damn close, as it was decided by just 79,646 votes between Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin (10,704 in MI, 46,745 in PA, and 22,177 in WI).
But the 2016 election also didn’t have anywhere near the number of mail-in ballots we’re going to see this November. In fact, no election has ever had the number of mail-in votes we’re about to see this November. Most states are mailing out ballots to every single registered voter on their rolls for this election. This has never happened before.
The problem with this is that most states don’t have up-to-date voter rolls. That GAI study noted that there are tens of millions of improperly registered voters:
In 2012, Pew Research found 24 million (one in eight) voter registrations were either invalid or significantly inaccurate. About 1.8 million deceased voters were discovered on state voter rolls, and 2.75 million people were registered to vote in more than one state. These findings alone do not equate to voter fraud, but show a system rife with error and vulnerability
24 million incorrect voter registrations. That was from 2012, so hopefully those incorrect voter registrations have been purged from the rolls. But since 2012 there have no doubt been more deceased voters kept on the voter rolls, as well as people who have moved. This stuff has to be continually cleaned up, yet we have no assurances that it has been even as states prepare to mail out ballots to every last registered voter on their rolls.
As I read more of the GAI study, they detailed the system they used to detect duplicate voters:
GAI partnered with Simpatico Software Systems and Virtual DBS, Inc.to perform the state-to-state voter roll comparisons and duplicate voting matches. Simpatico is a U.S.-based company specializing in large-scale database analytics. Among other projects, it works with state governments by applying waste and fraud analyses to health and human services programs to achieve program integrity and taxpayer savings.
It’s great that they have technology to identify duplicate voters, but the million dollar question is, will this Simpatico software be used on election night this year and in the ensuing days toensure there are no duplicate votes? The GAI used this software after the 2016 election was already in the books to retroactively search for voter fraud. I’m sure it helped to clean up voter rolls in preparation of 2020, but if this software or something like it is not being used during this election, it opens the door to widespread duplicate voting due to the massively increased numbers of mail-in ballots. This year it will be much easier than ever before to vote twice.
In 2016, the states didn’t mail out ballots to every last registered voter. This year, mail-in voting will be way up from 2016. The Florida primary, which was just a couple of weeks ago, saw over 2.1 million mail-in ballots compared to 1.3 million in 2016. However, in last month’s primary, there was no statewide race to boost turnout–i.e. Senator or Governor. Plus both the Democrat and Republican presidential nominations had already long been decided by the time last month’s Florida primary vote rolled around. In 2016, there was a Senate race and the Presidential nominations for both parties were still right in the thick of things, meaning turnout for 2020’s primary was lower than 2016’s–which in turn means we can expect a far greater number of mail-in ballots for November’s general election than the 2.1 million mail-in ballots filed for the August primary.
This GAI study was commissioned by President Trump in May 2017, not long after he took office. Thankfully Trump had the foresight back then to get to work cleaning up the voter rolls in preparation for the outrageous fraud Democrats were certain to be scheming up for 2020.
Unfortunately, however, the GAI study was only a study. We have no assurances that the instances of likely voter fraud identified by the study were ever addressed, since that’s up to the individual states. We have no assurances that the states followed the GAI study’s recommendations on cleaning up their voter rolls.
If the voter rolls are not meticulously kept up to date and accurate, then sending out mail-in ballots to everyone on the voter rolls becomes a massive opportunity for fraud. We could have not only duplicate voting but dead people voting, people voting on behalf of someone else who has moved, or “ballot harvesters” altering or destroying others’ ballots.
Ultimately we just have to hope the states can handle the mail-in voting process. Florida, for instance, mentioned in the Fox article above, has a great Republican governor who I’m sure Trump trusts to make sure there’s no funny business. You never know what kind of bullshit they’re going to pull down in Broward County–remember in 2018 that hilariously corrupt Democrat Brenda Snipes who was blatantly trying to steal the governor’s election from DeSantis and tilt it to the secretly homosexual meth-head Andrew Gillum? There’s still plenty of corrupt local Democratic officials to worry about in key states like Florida, but at least we have a Republican governor in office.
Not the case, however, for key states like Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Pennsylvania, unfortunately. On top of that, Nevada, Colorado, North Carolina, Maine and Virginia all have Democratic governors as well.
As far as the main swing states go, it’s Florida, Arizona, Ohio, Iowa, New Hampshire and Georgia with Republicans in office. I hate that the election might boil down to which states have corrupt or legitimate governors, but that’s where the Democrats have gone as a party. You can trust them about as far as you can throw them.
I hope my worst fears about the 2020 election go unrealized. I hope the mail-in fraud and dirty tricks are mostly limited to deep-blue cesspools like California, New York and Illinois, which won’t really affect the election much since those states are going Biden either way. I hope Republicans in swing states are on the ball when it comes to having legal teams ready to file injunctions in case, for instance, any Broward Bullshit goes down again.
Rick Scott’s campaign in 2018 laid out the blueprint for putting a stop to the fraudulent schemes: they filed a lawsuit against Brenda Snipes because she did not disclose how many ballots there were left to be counted in the days following the election. Fortunately the law requires that number to be disclosed, at least in Florida. Republicans in all of the key swing states must be all over this, otherwise Democrats will keep “counting” ballots until they find enough to win.
Be prepared for the worst on election night. The media will almost certainly refuse to call the election for Trump even if he’s up big. They’ll claim there’s too many mail-in ballots left to be counted.
Remember last week when I wrote about this? About how she could accuse Joe Biden of being a segregationist and then become his running mate, and how it proves the Democrats don’t mean a word of what they say about racism and oppression?
Steven Colbert asked her how she could do a complete 180 and become “pals” with Joe Biden after calling him a segregationist during the Primary debate last year, and all she could do was keep repeating “It was a DEBATE! It was a DEBATE!”
As in, “Yeah, whatever. I only said that stuff to get a rise out of the crowd.”
Kamala Harris just admitted to the world that she doesn’t believe what she says, she just says things in certain settings because it’s expected: pic.twitter.com/FKkaxB2JiS
There is something seriously wrong with this woman. She cackles like a maniac, endlessly. Like, well past the point where a normal person would’ve stopped laughing. She just keeps cackling and cackling and cackling to the point where it becomes uncomfortable.
We’re told Trump is intentionally knee-capping the USPS because he wants to undermine its ability to handle the unprecedented number of mail-in ballots in this year’s election.
But then the USPS goes and endorses Trump’s opponent Joe Biden:
Wait a minute. How are we supposed to trust the USPS won’t throw out ballots from pro-Trump areas now that they’ve endorsed Trump’s opponent, Joe Biden?
This is third-world politics right here. The Democrats are making a massive push for mail-in voting–because of 🦠😱THE VIRUS 🦠😱–and now the postal service has endorsed the Democratic candidate for President.
This is blatant Election Interference™.
They’re rigging the election before our eyes. 🦠😱THE VIRUS 🦠😱 made it so Joe Biden didn’t have to campaign, and now 🦠😱THE VIRUS 🦠😱 is their excuse for universal mail-in voting, which the pro-Biden USPS will be in charge of.
America is now a first-world/third-world hybrid country. The Democrats are full-fledged gangsters who barely even try to hide their corruption anymore.
