GEORGIA ON MY MIND: "RECOUNT" IS ANOTHER MESS
On Wednesday, we reported attorney Lin Wood’s recent observations on Trump’s overall legal strategy –- particularly Sidney Powell’s investigation into voter machine fraud –- and also his own fight in Georgia, which centers on the recount there. Late Wednesday, with just hours to go before the scheduled completion of the Georgia recount, Wood filed an emergency motion seeking to block certification of the results. He included sworn affidavits from witnesses saying they saw –- during the RECOUNT, mind you –- ballots for President Trump being counted as though cast for Joe Biden.
According to sworn testimony, there were also strange things about many ballots. They had no creases, which one would have expected to find on a sheet of paper that had been inside an envelope. They were flat and pristine, with no other marks and nothing to show where they’d come from or had been processed. Some witnesses also noticed that the votes on these ballots were made as perfect circles, never going outside the lines, as might come from a stamp or machine.
Note that three Georgia counties have discovered batches of ballots, numbering in the thousands, the majority for Trump, that hadn’t been previously counted. “Everything was in total disarray,” testified Fulton County poll manager Susan Voyles, who has been doing this for 20 years.
Another sworn affidavit, from a Democrat, attested to similar problems with ballots in DeKalb County.
"I heard them go through the stack and call Biden’s name 500 times in a row,” he said of the count.
Someone else who was looking at ballots from the military and overseas noted similar problems. When she told the elections director she thought some ballots looked different and might be counterfeit, he told her it was “due to the use of different printers.” Almost all the ballots she reviewed were for Biden, “some 100 percent for Biden.” She believes that “the military ballots are highly suspicious of fraud.”
One witness said she’d recorded on video people counting Trump ballots for Biden and putting them in the wrong pile. Another person saw this happening in Henry County–- and had other observers tell him the same thing –- and he brought it to the attention of the election official, who reacted with “extreme hostility.” “At no time did I witness a ballot for Joseph Biden be placed in the pile for Donald Trump,” he testified.
These are just a few of the irregularities that have been documented by Wood. “Multiple witnesses described pervasive violations of the rules of the recount,” the EPOCH TIMES story reports. In fact, Jeff Carlson, in an update, has documented many of the same irregularities, in even greater detail.
It appears to have just been a mess. “Ballots were placed in unmarked bins that are unattended or just placed randomly on a counter, just lying around,” testified one recount monitor for the Trump campaign. “There appeared to be little, if any, supervision or control.” One box of ballots was left unattended for two days.
"There was no way to tell if any counting was accurate,” she testified.
Ten thousand votes here, ten thousand votes there; pretty soon it adds up to a different outcome.
On Wednesday, President Trump made his disapproval known. “The Georgia recount is a joke and is being done UNDER PROTEST,” he tweeted. “Even though thousands of fraudulent votes have been found, the real number is in matching signatures.”
To be sure, in this recount, they did not bother matching signatures. So the “recount” is essentially just reaffirming the original count, except for those ballots that have been “found.” Looks as though it's even more messed-with now; who knows?
Wood’s motion on Wednesday called on the FEDERAL court to stop Georgia from certifying the results of the election and order another hand recount “which must be performed in a manner consistent with the Georgia Election Code.” It also asks the court to order the defendants to hand over the ballot envelopes and copies of absentee ballot requests.
Note that under the law, the Trump campaign may request another recount even after the state’s results are certified. So it seems he could have the vote counted yet AGAIN. But if the next recount is still not code-compliant –- if it’s as flawed as this one appears to be –- what good is that?
On Wednesday evening, while the recount was still going on, Sean Hannity gave an update on all the mostly-Trump ballots that were “turning up.” Where have all these ballots been keeping themselves? Fayette County found 2,755 ballots, Walton County found 284, and Floyd County found 2,600. At the time of Hannity’s show, over 5,600 uncounted Georgia votes had been located during the previous week.
We like to hear that, in America, “every vote counts.” But what this tells us is that one vote is so insignificant that it can be nonchalantly placed in the wrong pile, hidden from official observers, canceled by a vote from someone long dead or eaten by somebody’s dog (or so they might claim) during a messy and wildly inaccurate counting process. And not just one vote –- thousands of votes. The electoral process is being destroyed. This just goes to prove what we’ve long said: Leftists destroy EVERYTHING.
A postscript: To show how important it is for Georgia --- especially ---to get its act together and conduct a reliable election process, the WASHINGTON FREE BEACON reports that a group called The Black PAC, largely bankrolled by George Soros and Michael Bloomberg, has funneled $300,000 to the support of Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Osoff in Georgia’s senatorial run-offs on January 5.
"This is the first significant expense from an outside liberal group in the pivotal Georgia runoffs that will determine which party controls Congress’s upper chamber next year,” the report says. There will likely be hundreds of millions in “outside money” arriving from far-left activists around the country in the coming weeks.
The Black PAC, dedicated to black voter turnout, is awash in money: According to the latest filings, it had raised $23.5 million and spent $12.5 million by mid-October. This includes $1.5 million from the Democracy PAC, created by Soros; $6.2 million from Bloomberg; $2.25 million from the Sixteen Thirty Fund (which the FREE BEACON reports was secretly “used to push” $55 million into the 2020 elections); $1 million from the Senate Majority PAC; and millions more from groups such as America Votes, Unite the Country, and various union PACs.
Leftists are already encouraging their comrades to “move” to Georgia just so they can cast their votes for the Democrats in those run-offs, though doing this, AS THEY KNOW, is quite illegal. The state will prosecute.
It’s just another variety of voter fraud, the idea of which doesn’t deter them in the least. Certainly not if it gives them President, House and SENATE.
The last thing they care about is self-determination for the people of Georgia. For Republicans in Georgia to have a say under these extraordinary circumstances, they MUST raise money from outside their state, and plenty of it. The Georgia Battleground Fund, set up by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, is organizing in all 50 states. Including yours, hint hint.
You can also donate to Huck PAC, my political organization, which invested $84,000 directly into the campaigns of Georgia candidates for the November elections and has already donated another $15,000 for the Georgia runoffs. To donate to Huck PAC's efforts, please go here.
And if you live in Georgia, they're going to need LOTS of poll watchers.
MICHIGAN ELECTION UPDATE
Yesterday, I described this election as a roller coaster with inadequate safety protocols, and here are the latest twists and turns.
I told you that the two Republican members of the Wayne County, Michigan (Detroit), Board of Canvassers had voted to certify the vote results, despite major concerns about irregularities. I said that I hoped it wasn’t because they and their families were receiving threats of violence and slander that they were racists, both from Internet jerks and elected officials who should know better (Rep. Rashida Tlaib.)
Well, it appears that was partly why they caved in. Late Wednesday night, the two Republicans rescinded their votes to certify, saying they had been threatened and coerced, and they only agreed after being promised the certification would be followed by a full and independent audit of the vote. But as soon as the Democrats got their certification, they started talking as if they had no plans to keep that pledge, so the Republicans reversed their votes. I assume there will now be a fight over whether they’re allowed to do that, or whether the Democrats are allowed to break their commitment to an open, transparent audit.
It’s funny how the same people who keep telling us there’s no voter fraud and the claims of it are all lies and hoaxes seem so desperate to keep anyone from looking into it. If there’s really nothing to see, why wouldn’t they want to prove that and remove the cloud of suspicion?
Before I drop this subject, I want to touch on two other aspects. One is how leftists accused the Republicans of being racists trying to disenfranchise black voters because they want to make sure all the votes were legal. That’s incredibly racist in itself. It makes the assumption that no blacks voted for Trump, which we know isn’t true; he increased his share of the black vote as well as other minority groups. What disenfranchises voters of every color is vote fraud. Every illegal vote cast nullifies the right of a legitimate voter to have a say in his or her own government. If they really cared about not disenfranchising black voters, they would want to make sure that no fake Biden votes were counted that disenfranchised a black Trump supporter. I’m sure it will be a cold day in Hades when that happens.
Second, I want to emphasize once again how despicable and unacceptable it is to threaten or dox public officials and especially their families and children. I would hope that anyone who did that would be held accountable to the full extent of the law. That’s the kind of behavior you see in banana republic tyrannies, where people fear speaking their minds lest they incur the wrath of the goon squads. It has no place in the United States of America, and that goes for both sides of the political spectrum.
In Michigan, there were many leftist Internet goons stirring up retribution against the Republican officials and even their children. Here’s an example: Democrat Abraham Aiyash, the only candidate in Michigan’s fourth district, caught on Zoom video berating one of the Republican canvassers as a racist, naming where her family lives and the school her children attend, and claiming she was harming her kids’ black classmates (hint, hint.)
This is beyond reprehensible. As disgusting as I find his behavior, I would never try to bully him into behaving like a civilized human being by publicly inviting harm to his children. Of course, I don’t know if he has children, but I assume he has, or at some point had, parents. If so, they should apologize for how they raised him.
And just to be clear: this is not partisan criticism, it’s basic human decency. Arizona’s Democrat Secretary of State says she’s been receiving escalating threats of violence, including one calling for burning her house down and killing her family.
I might disagree with her decisions about the election, but the way to handle that is through proper legal channels, not with threats against her and her family. Republican Gov. Doug Ducey rightly condemned such threats as “completely unacceptable.” He’s absolutely right. They might be even more disgusting coming from the right, since I don’t put anything past the Antifa types, but I expect our side to know better than that.
BLACK PRE-BORN LIVES MATTER
Washington, DC’s Mayor not only commissioned a two block-long “Black Lives Matter” mural, she allowed BLM activists to paint “Defund the Police” next to it in permanent paint and let it remain for two months. Since the city seemed to be endorsing the notion that black lives matter, some pro-life students began writing “Black pre-born lives matter” on the sidewalk outside a Planned Parenthood clinic (in chalk, no less), and DC police arrested them before they could even finish.
Now, Students for Life in America and the black conservative Frederick Douglass Foundation are suing the city in federal court for selectively enforcing the defacement code to silence disfavored speech.
Let’s hope the courts deliver a stern message to power-abusing politicians that among the rights that apply to all Americans of all races are our First Amendment rights.
“If It Weren’t For Double Standards…” Dept: Joe Biden wants Americans to limit their Thanksgivings to no more than 10 family members to prevent spreading the coronavirus. Look at these videos of Biden election celebrations and see if you think there are more than ten people in these mobs.
ANOTHER TOSS-UP RACE TO THE GOP
And another “blue wave” hope crashes on the shore: in the race to fill the House seat vacated by former Republican New York Rep. Pete King, Democrat Jackie Gordon has conceded to Republican Andrew Garbarino, keeping the seat in GOP hands.
On that topic, the pollsters claimed there were 27 House seats that were considered to be “toss-ups.” So far, Republicans have won 25 of them and are leading in the two that are still being counted in Iowa and New York. If those were truly “toss-ups,” then this would be like tossing a coin and having it come up “heads” 27 times in a row. It’s nice to see yet another new way in which the biased pollsters utterly humiliated themselves.
So I guess this means that in the next election, the media won’t start obsessing over useless polls six months in advance, right? Nah, I’m only kidding. They will. They’re like Charlie Brown trying to kick that football and ending up on his back over and over again.
