Ballot-shredding: the night the lights went out in Georgia

By Mike Huckabee

As promised over the weekend, here is our full report on Patrick Byrne’s account of secret nighttime ballot-shredding in Georgia.

Byrne, founder and former CEO of, has been working on behalf of President Trump to expose massive, targeted fraud in the 2020 election, and he appears to have hit some serious paydirt last week. Acting on a tip, he sent an operative to get what he claims are pictures, video and samples of fake ballots being transported last Wednesday night under cover of darkness from the Fulton County Warehouse to a shredding facility. A screen grab of everything he tweeted on New Year’s Day, complete with pictures, is included in this piece from AMERICAN THINKER.

Note that every tweet in the thread is labeled in bright red by the helpful folks at Twitter: “This claim about election fraud is disputed.” Twitter automatically sticks this warning on anything having to do with election fraud, even –- perhaps especially –- on tweets from President Trump. Ludicrously, they do this even if the tweet itself includes evidence that clearly shows wrongdoing.

The timing of this alleged shredding party is quite interesting. Last Wednesday, the Georgia senate subcommittee on election fraud held a meeting to hear evidence, during which Jovan Pulitzer, the inventor and patent holder of the electronic barcode scanner, testified that he could look at ballots and tell right away exactly what had been done to commit election fraud. He wanted just TWO HOURS with the ballots from two different areas of Fulton County, he said, and that would tell the tale. As if that weren’t enough, he stunned his audience by dropping the bomb that as he spoke, his team had hacked into the Dominion voting system that was used November 3, the same one that is now being used to vote in the Georgia run-offs for U.S. Senate. He said they WERE IN. Dominion claims that the machines are not connected to the internet and that this cannot happen.

Pulitzer said all they had to do was hack into one of the electronic poll pads and use that as a way in. It’s apparently easy as pie if you know how to do it. They can siphon information out of the machines, change it, and put it back in, essentially without detection, he said. In the days since he made the claim, we the public have not yet seen his proof, but everyone’s been really quiet about it, including, as far as I know, Dominion. Byrne did say in his tweets that he’s got to run everything past lawyers before he can reveal it to the public. So we’re waiting.

But Pultizer said it was the ballots themselves that would tell the tale. He can spot any counterfeits and tell the type of paper used, he said, and even where it came from –- China, perhaps? Likewise with the ink. He can tell if a person filled out the ballot by hand or if a machine marked it. Numerous election workers have already testified they saw ballots that looked as if they’d been printed on different paper and marked by machine, with one perfect little oval in the space for Joe Biden and the rest left blank.

It’s possible that ballots used in heavily Democrat district were the real thing, designed to be counted by the machines, but that the ones used in Republican districts were fakes, misaligned to generate errors, which then have to be “adjudicated” by election workers who did that job far, far away from the prying eyes of Republican poll watchers.

Anyway, at the end of Wednesday’s meeting, the subcommittee voted unanimously to recommend that Pulitzer and his team be given access to the ballots. This recommendation still had to go before a judge, so a hearing was set for 11AM Monday in Superior Court. Unless Chief Justice John Roberts is moonlighting on that Georgia court, Pulitzer might very well be given access to the ballots for a couple of hours on Monday and at that point, either put suspicions to rest --- wouldn’t that be nice, Democrats? --- or confirm them.

But it was on Wednesday night, just a few hours after that unanimous vote, that the rented Enterprise trucks allegedly pulled up to the warehouse where the ballots were stored. Here’s AMERICAN THINKER’S earlier report, written before anyone knew about Byrne’s tip and the documentation his operative was able to get that night.

Ballots were loaded up and, according to Byrne, driven to a specialized document shredding company, where they were shredded not just into little strips but military-style, into tiny “spitballs” roughly the size of individual molecules. I would imagine processing that much paper in that way would be extremely expensive, but probably worth it if you're trying to keep people out of jail.

In the photos, Byrne’s got boxes and boxes of ballots with close-up pictures of their labels. He’s got stacks and stacks of ballots sitting in the Fulton County Warehouse, presumably awaiting pickup. He’s got close-ups on individual ballots, which I would think could be blown up large enough for Pulitzer to find any problems with the printing on them. But that might not even be necessary, because Byrne says he also got sample ballots.

Oh, and one slightly hilarious "coincidence": the labels on these boxes show they were addressed to the attention of Dwight Brower at the Fulton County Department of Voter Registration and Election. Mr. Brower is one of the people who reported the burst water pipe at State Farm Arena as a reason for stopping the counting on election night.

There was no burst water pipe. No service call was even made. The only problem involving water was a leaky toilet or urinal, apparently in a bathroom on the floor above. Oh, no --- man the lifeboats! Abandon ship! Except for a crew of four who are going to stay behind and drown--- I mean, continue counting ballots that appear magically from under a table.

AMERICAN THINKER did a great job of fact-checking the “fact”-checkers who tried to debunk the claims of improper counting at State Farm Arena.

As for Wednesday night’s shredding party, Byrne even has a map tracing the route of the trucks. Video apparently exists as well; Byrne tweeted that the file was too big to load. I like to think that when Georgia’s vote is challenged during Wednesday's joint session of Congress –- as we know now it definitely will be –- and the House and Senate retire to their separate chambers for two hours to talk amongst themselves, this video, along with a complete report from Pulitzer on any problems with ballots or voting machines –- will be part of the evidence presented. Cross your fingers.

Historic Week

By Mike Huckabee

I hope you had a safe New Year’s weekend and didn’t get burned setting off fireworks while stuck at home on your couch. But it’s time to leap back into the fast-moving news, since this promises to be a historic week.

Tuesday will be the Georgia runoffs, where the balance of power in the Senate, and therefore, in the entire federal government, will be determined. The very next day, President Trump will attend a massive rally in Washington, DC, to protest alleged vote fraud, while Congress is voting on whether to accept the results of the electoral college vote for Biden – and we already know that there will be challenges to that from both House and Senate Republicans.

Sen. Josh Hawley is no longer the only Republican Senator who plans to join about 140 House Republicans in challenging the certification of Biden’s electoral vote victory. The momentum seems to be shifting toward fighting to hear the evidence, after a conference call Saturday between Trump and Congressional Republicans.

Sen. Ted Cruz has joined about a dozen Senators in saying they will call for a challenge that sparks an automatic debate. Here’s more information about that

And video of Cruz on Maria Bartiromo’s show, explaining it in person…

Cruz made some good points, such as that the Supreme Court should have done its job and taken the cases presented to it, and that claims that there’s no evidence of voter fraud mostly come from people who haven’t seen all the evidence gathered or have refused to look at it. He also said that Congress faces two “lousy” options: accept a vote that tens of millions of Americans have no faith in, or reject it and be accused of setting aside an election because their candidate didn’t prevail. So he said the Republicans will push for a third option: perform a 10-day, bipartisan and transparent audit of the vote, which will expose corruption if there was any or reassure Americans that Biden’s win was legitimate if there wasn’t any.

(This is not unprecedented: there was similar concern about fraud in three states in 1877, and Congress appointed an electoral commission to look into it.)

Tune out the howling from the media and ponder that, and I think you’ll see it’s not only in the best interests of America, but if the media and the Democrats (pardon my redundancy) are so certain of their adamant denials that there was any vote fraud (well, not enough to sway the election, at least; just an “acceptable” amount of vote fraud), then here’s a great way to prove that, show up their critics and remove any lingering suspicions that will surely dog a Biden Administration for as long as it lasts. If only some prominent person had suggested this solution right after the election! Oh, wait, someone did: me.

I would remind Democrats who would oppose a 10-day audit that when they claimed the 2016 election was rigged by Russia and Trump was an illegitimate President, they got to spend two years and 30 million of our tax dollars letting Trump’s worst enemies investigate him and everyone connected to him with virtually no restraints, legal or otherwise. If they prefer, we could go that route. But when you look at it like that, doesn’t a simple, 10-day audit of the vote sound a lot better?

Intelligence Community Response

By Mike Huckabee

Former Director of National Intelligence Ric Grennell had some interesting comments on Sen. Ted Cruz’s call for an audit of the vote, noting that the Democrats had shifted from “there’s not any fraud” to “there’s not widespread fraud” to “there wasn’t enough fraud to overturn the election.”

Speaking of former Intelligence agency members, there’s a report that a loose network of about 400 former investigators and operatives from several federal intelligence agencies have taken it upon themselves to look into the 2020 election. Former CIA agent Robert Caron says the group has existed since 2014, but it’s quickly grown as former agents have volunteered to investigate the election because “the fraud was so massive and so blatant, despite what the mainstream media said, that we need to get this information out to the public.”

    I am extremely disappointed in some of my fellow Republicans. Including Mitch McConnell whom I supported for reelection and for others. These people won’t even support their own president. What kind of a country have we become.? We’re no better than a third world country as we look at this election. Shame shame shame on these people.

    Seems like if all the illegal ballets were shredded, then the solution is to just order one more recount? Or did they shred Trump ballets, too?

    January 6th will br an interesting day. All the evidence of fraud and ballot destruction, etc in just Georgia is overwhelming. Just think about other states and what has or could be uncovered. Now is we had an FBI that was worth anything or an AG who actually dismissed the possibility of fraud that wouldn't be enough to overturn the election, etc. Just think if we had a Supreme Court who actually wanted to be presented evidence and truth and support the Constitution, but instead we have the Swamp Court of the United States. We now and especially on January 6th and there after will have two political parties- Patriots and Traitors. And at least 75+ million who voted for President Trump snd watching particularly Republicans to see which category they will forever placed. I strongly suspect that few Republicans will be gaining campaign contributions in the next election especially if they don't speak out in support of Stop the Steal and speak up for President Trump. Way too many Republicans have not stood brhond the President snd American Patriots are watching you!!! We, the Patriots are sick and tired of spineless Republicans and traitors, allowing dispicable evil Democrats to run rough shod over you and do nothing!! So Republican Congress members which are you- Patriots or Traitors?????

    Ain't it a real shame that 400 agents have to volunteer to investigate the obviously fraud, when we pay millions for the FBI and CIA do do that. Where are they? Soon all the evidence will be destroyed.

    And where is Durham?

    We appreciate these updates, Governor.

    I would like to hear your reaction to Gabriel Sterling’s news conference in Ga today on the investigation into possible election fraud issues in the state. Based on that, I think your shredded ballots were only extras that were never used in the voting. Again, I hope you saw the news conference and I would like to hear your reaction. While there are still some possible issues to address, I thought Mr. Sterling addressed many of the current issues including the video from the State Farm Arena. Bill Taylor

    Senator Cruz is exactly right but too lenient in worrying about what obvious cheats think about someone overseeing their illegal activities and simple invalidate the results to the disputed states when fraud can be shown in one state. Let the senate deliberations begin and the results fall where they may without the grace of an audit. I find it highly unlikely that the Democrats would show the same mercy that the Cruz Republicans are showing were their positions reversed. Forget the audit and deliberate, each state with one vote.

    I LOVE this.
    I know there was massive voter fraud. I just know!
    RI SOS had registered 1000s of illegals; by her own statement that they don't even ask for ID or status. She herself brought at least 15,000 illegals to live in RI from her native Dominican Republic.
    I do not trust her or anyone under the thumb of the Clintons or Obamas. Power to Trurh and Justice

    There might not be any voter fraud, BUT since the start of President Trump's term people in the FBI, Cia Democrats in Congress, news people, Hollywood types and others have done everything they could to get rid of President Trump. I would not be at all surprised if there is not a conspiracy to create voter fraud in certain selected states. And if it's ever proven then all the people involved and I mean all should be charged with treason nand if found guilty nsent to prison forever in isolation never to be seen or heard from again, and if BLM and antife don't like it bring it on.

    You would have to be a blithering moron to not know that there was intended cheating and thousands of bogus ballots turned in on the last presidential election!! For biden!!!
    There must be an audit performed in the states where it's known as a fact!! More votes than citizens is a great clue!!
    Our legal system is hurting now, by refusing to do their duties and mandate the audits!!!
    Pray people, for our father in heaven to enter vein in this, and make it right!!

    It's messed up that state legislatures in swing states are being refused a special session by their own government, to take the power that is theirs, in regard to the electors. Massive evidence of voter & election fraud is being stopped from pretty much every outlet to expose the evidence. This is wrong. The bible does tell us about lawlessness in the end times. God is still in charge. So we shall see how it all works out. I am very proud of our MO Senator Josh Hawley for having backbone when so many other lawmakers do not.

    I am praying like never before for America and the future of my next generations. When you listen to Mark Levin and what they are doing to the constitution it is unreal. Nothing has been done correctly. Steve Hilton had some great guests that had the goods. Stacy Abrams sister according to the law does have to recite herself. President Trump has done alot for America and whether you like him or not, he knows how to get things done for this country. I know God is in control and what the sow they will reap, but that does to mean we won't be hurt.

    Listening to Ted Cruz, I am amazed at either his ignorance, his blatant lying, or his stupidity. Everyone keeps saying "get out and vote and take the state of Georgia back" but apparently have no clue about how much corruption and fraudulent activity has taken place that is totally negating anything the republicans are doing. It doesn't matter how many people get out and vote - the socialist democrats have already won the run-off election because of their nefarious actions IMHO.

    My sister wrote this to me from a breakfast she had with her friend in Georgia on Sunday, 3 Jan 2021: "I’m afraid you are right. We had breakfast yesterday with friends who live over the state line, and Ami said a friend of hers was worried about the accuracy of the paper ballot that they have to put into the voting machine, so (even though it’s illegal) she took a picture of it. Then she happened to think about the QR codes that have been switching votes. She put her phone up to the QR code and even though she had voted straight Republican, the QR code recorded her votes at Democrat. Hard to win, or have a fair election when that kind of sh— is already in place."

    Now that illegal ballots from Fulton County, GA, have been shredded, it is time to do a recount of that county and get revised (as close to real and accurate) results! What will the Gov and SoS do now?

    The rats are trying to get those lifeboats as fast possible and hoping they are there for them. But as they get closer and closer they notice the rafts are gone or are sinking due to there are holes in them and real culprits have left them to go down with the ship.

    Do not be surprised and get ready for a real backstabber coming out from behind the curtain.

    I predict that Kalama Harris will NOT make it to the inauguration on the 20th due to an unexplained accident leaving SLEEPY JOE Biden with no alternative but to bring on board, Crooked Hillary Clinton for payback for the gross mistake they made on 2016 and shortly after that Pelosi and Obama will have Joe sent to the Happy Rest Home in Wilmington DE, Making Hillary the First woman President.
