Let’s not get caught up in the left’s false narratives that there’s “no evidence” of vote fraud (people have already been arrested for it) or that Biden’s popular vote lead is beyond the “margin of fraud.” That’s due to states like California that aren’t in dispute; we’re talking about very slim margins in a handful of battleground states.
This isn’t an either/or situation. It’s entirely possible that there was widespread vote fraud but not enough to determine the winner. If it is proven that Biden won legitimately, then I will accept him as President, just as I did Obama, despite our policy differences. I won’t do what the other side did and spend however long Biden is President screaming that he's “illegitimate” or “not MY President!” I will show the respect due the office that many Democrats never showed to Trump.
But I also want all allegations of voting irregularities investigated; any incidences of fraud prosecuted to the full extent of the law, whether they determined the election or not; and laws changed and tightened to prevent it ever happening again. Democrats dispense a lot of balloon juice about all Americans having their voices heard in elections. They even declared Stacy Abrams a hero and a party leader for challenging her loss in Georgia. They've whined for four years about the legitimacy of the 2016 election ("without evidence," to use their favorite phrase.) So since every fraudulent vote negates the legal vote of a citizen, I assume they’ll join me in my demand for transparency, law changes, and investigations of claims like this, from a Nevada whistleblower who put it in a sworn affidavit to the Department of Justice.
I also assume that someday, pigs will fly.
DO THIS RIGHT: WHY IT IS IMPORTANT THAT TRUMP NOT CONCEDE!
Where to start on the situation we as a nation are now facing? First, let’s get one thing clear: Does anyone think for ONE SECOND that –- given all the anomalies of this election and the strange turnaround that completely changed the outcome –- if the situation were reversed and Trump were ahead, the Biden campaign would say, “Yes! The people have spoken! Donald Trump has won re-election! We’re leaving now.”? Anyone?
Of course they wouldn’t. They’d recount close states and find every bit of evidence of voter fraud that might have influenced the outcome –- which this year, I must point out, is all coming from the Democrat side. They’d NEVER go quietly. (Recall Gore in 2000 –- that took well over a month.) So anyone –- including the media –- saying it’s over and Trump should concede need to put a cork in it until we determine the actual vote count.
The left NEVER accepted Trump as the duly-elected President, even though he was. They concocted a story about Russians and STILL push it, though exhaustive investigation found no evidence. They undermined him –- and demeaned us –- at every turn. They tried to remove him with a sham impeachment. Now, they expect us to slump away defeated after a few days while they coronate his opponent? NO.
Biden is already pretending to be the President-elect, giving speeches saying “the people have spoken.” Actually, the media have spoken, but they don’t decide this. They DON’T certify the vote. Still, they just can’t wait, so this is the kind of headline we’re seeing everywhere.
When Democrats say “the people have spoken,” that’s not what they mean. They refer to the ballot count, which may or may not reflect the people’s will. They want to freeze it before it can be shown that “the people” might want something very different from what THEY want to give them.
My staff and I have been looking through almost countless reports about this to see what is partisan spin (from both sides) and what might actually reflect reality. Here’s some good sense from AMERICAN THINKER.
The author, Jay Valentine, is clear that he supported Trump and has tried hard to contain his confirmation bias, but he has a degree in statistics and sees plenty of reason to examine the result. Not only is this NOT OVER, he says, but it’s “scary for Biden.” That’s why the Biden campaign and the media (but I repeat myself) are in such a hurry to declare him the winner and get everybody used to the idea.
Valentine first looks at Philadelphia and the order from Justice Alito to keep late ballots separate. Remove those, and Trump wins Pennsylvania. (Of course, there are scores of eyewitness accounts that suggest outright fraud in Philadelphia, also in Pittsburgh.) Valentine thinks Trump will win the state.
Here’s a story we found about Pennsylvania accepting mail-in ballots for this election at almost 30 times the rate predicted by historical rejection numbers. Hmm...
Valentine also finds numerous anomalies in Nevada and Wisconsin. For example, Wisconsin election clerks were told to fill in ballots themselves where critical information had been left off. This information is supposed to be resolved before Election Day. Such ballots don’t count, at least according to retired Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman, who said on local radio that the statute is “very, very clear. If an absentee ballot does not have a witness address on it, it’s not valid.” The Wisconsin GOP “estimates that thousands of witness addresses may have been changed.” Here are more details concerning Wisconsin.
Michigan is a mess, too, especially Detroit, where many accounts have emerged about GOP observers being ejected or otherwise barred from seeing the process. Here’s just one.
By the way, don’t look for such reporting through a Google search. They’ve “fact-checked” it and found it all to be “false.” Not so.
Problems have also arisen on a smaller scale; example, Michigan.
"Voter fraud is kind of like larceny,” Valentine says. “A little is okay. It is even kind of entertaining...” (like all those jokes we’ve told about dead “Democrats” voting) “...But voter fraud on this scale is just not sustainable. It does not pass the common sense test...The overwhelming number now goes beyond humor and rubs our faces in it.”
Trump has, as he puts it, “gone to the mattresses.” We’ll just see what the “will of the people” is.
Also, Mark Levin had a MUST-SEE program this Sunday on LIFE, LIBERTY & LEVIN. Here’s a great clip of him with guest Ken Starr; if you missed it Sunday night, the show in its entirety should be online soon.
As they discussed, it was a deliberate choice to have legislators direct the process for choosing electors for their states, to keep it as close to the people as possible. This “got lost in the Pennsylvania shuffle,” Starr said, calling what the governor did through the state supreme court to change the rules “a constitutional travesty.” Justice Alito has stepped in to say, in effect, that “the legislature is the boss.” That’s why he’s having late ballots counted and kept separately, pending a decision by the full Court about the power of the state legislature.
"To ‘count every vote’ may be a crime” under state law, Starr said, perhaps even under federal law. You don’t count every ILLEGAL vote. “It’s shameful,” he said, “that Vice President Biden’s people and the Vice President himself are saying ‘Count every vote’ and selling a lot of t-shirts.”
Levin observed, “The Democrats...want to vote earlier and earlier and count later and later.” Yes, to create unreliability and chaos. (I would add that it keeps early voters from being able to change their minds.) Starr cited two cities, Detroit and Philadelphia, for having “a sordid history of voter fraud,” involving “criminal convictions” that in Pennsylvania involved the sitting state senate majority leader, who went to jail.
Imagine someone actually going to jail over this!
As Levin said, there have been over 300 lawsuits this year in key states, to “stack the deck” with the methodology by which votes are cast and counted, setting us up for the current mess. (I should mention that we previously reported Clinton attorney Marc Elias of the firm Perkins Coie being particularly active in this process.)
Levin also hosted constitutional scholar and election law expert Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation and a former commissioner for the Federal Election Commission. He was also counsel to the assistant attorney general for civil rights in the DOJ, in charge of enforcing voting rights law. He spoke about those 300+ lawsuits, which had “a common theme.”
"They all tried to get the security protocols that are in place for absentee or mail-in ballots eliminated,” he said. Signature requirements, signature comparisons, limits on ‘vote harvesting,’ voter ID –- they wanted it all out the window. Is that to ensure we “count every vote,” or that we “count every ballot, real or not”?
Be sure and watch the entire interview, as well as Levin’s closing statement --- you’ll see why the media and the Biden campaign (same thing) do NOT get to call this election; why it might very well turn out differently; and why it’s so important, whatever the outcome, that this be done right.
SIDNEY POWELL TAKES LEAD FOR TRUMP, DROPS BIG NEWS
If you saw Maria Bartiromo’s SUNDAY MORNING FUTURES yesterday, you know that legal powerhouse Sidney Powell --- known for her determination in defending Michael Flynn --- has taken a leading role in Trump’s election challenge in a number of states. Lawsuits are expected to be filed Monday, including at least one in Pennsylvania.
Powell claimed that “there has been a massive and coordinated effort to steal this election from ‘we the people of the United States of America,’ to delegitimize and destroy votes for Donald Trump, [and] to manufacture votes for Joe Biden. They have done it in every way imaginable, from having dead people vote in massive numbers, to absolutely, fraudulently creating ballots that exist, only voting for Biden.”
As the WASHINGTON EXAMINER reports, Powell said on the show that at least 450,000 ballots –- this includes 98,000 in Pennsylvania, 80-90,000 in Georgia, 42,000 in Arizona, 69-115,000 in Michigan and 62,000 in Wisconsin –- have already been identified in key states that “miraculously” have just a mark for Biden in the presidential race but no other mark down the ballot, not even for big races such as for U.S. Senate. (That in itself is not proof of ballot box-stuffing, but it’s very unusual and highly suggestive of it.) She said that if you look at the ballots in Florida, “where things were done right,” you can see how the rest of the balloting should have gone.
She also said an “algorithm” was used to calculate the number of votes they’d need to flip and they used computers to do this. She suspects the same method was used to cause Doug Collins and John James to lose their races. “There were many people affected by this. We have got to fight tooth-and-nail in federal court to oppose this abject fraud and the conspiracy behind it.”
But the news that made headlines was her claim that the software used in voting machines manufactured by Dominion Voting Systems, a company in which top Democrats hold significant interest, flipped votes from Republican to Democrat or added votes that didn’t really exist. She said the “glitches” that happened never should have. (Maria also mentioned the “stop-downs” as returns came in as something she’d never seen.) For more details, the WASHINGTON EXAMINER has a report.
If Powell does have evidence of this, she didn’t present it on the show. She did say that some Democrats should be angry about this, too, naming Bernie Sanders as someone who may have lost primary elections through this same tactic.
This is something that absolutely must be checked out. Dominion machines are in use in 28 states and Puerto Rico, including ALL the battleground states where Trump’s team is contesting the vote count.
In answer to Maria’s question about investigation by the Department of Justice, Powell said she didn’t know where they were on it, but that they need to be investigating. (I realize they don’t announce when they are investigating, but in this case they need to be on it, fast.) Powell also noted that they now have an affidavit from a postal worker who swears he was told to back-date ballots. She also said there are “at least three major federal issues” for the Supreme Court to resolve.
She says that when the real votes are counted, “Trump will win. He is the President, and he is in charge of this country.”
