"Who are you gonna believe, me or your own eyes?”

This line from the Marx Brothers movie DUCK SOUP seems appropriate right now, as the mind reels after a day of statements and sworn testimony Tuesday in multiple states, a parade of poll watchers and postal drivers detailing outrageous allegations of ballot manipulation: alteration, duplication, invalidation, segregation and even illegal transportation.

And the media's denial of what we can all see --- that's an abomination.

The reports involve hundreds of thousands of ballots in key states. These witnesses weren’t all Republicans and Trump supporters, either. Some were just people who smelled something fishy and thought they should speak up. Many of the claims came to light through the Thomas More Society’s Amistad Project, an independent investigation of voting and voter registration in several key battleground states.

In one report that seemed like something out of a movie (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: Help Biden Win!), a U.S. Postal Service subcontractor said he’d been tasked with driving a trailer loaded with somewhere between 144,000 and 288,000 completed mail-in ballots (!) from Bethpage, New York, to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and that when he finished the run at the USPS depot in Lancaster, the truck “disappeared.” Yep, that’s what the man said.

Perhaps this trailer wasn’t taken by people trying to ditch a truckload of ballots. No, it might’ve been beamed up by space aliens who are studying our supposedly democratic system of voting.

Another subcontractor said he was told the USPS in Wisconsin was gathering over 100,000 late-arriving ballots on the morning of November 4 to backdate them so they’d still count. Yes, that’s hearsay, but he was told this separately by two different postal workers, who might want to consider testifying.

Multiple speakers said there was “widespread malfeasance” by Post Office employees. Besides backdating late ballots, they also ordered that Trump mail be sorted out and placed in the “Undeliverable Bulk Business Mail” bin while emphasizing that mail supporting Biden be delivered on time.

Others described violations of protocol involving Dominion voting machines. (Dominion vendors strike me as having been much too involved in our voting process.) A computer expert said that what they did rendered audits impossible “without direct forensic access to the machines.”

The Amistad group said “whistleblowers found that election officials in mostly Democratic areas manipulated ballots and campaign mail, potentially influencing the outcome. [They] detail the failure of election officials in blue jurisdictions to maintain ballot chain of custody, allowing for the potential infusion of fraudulent ballots.”

Tuesday seemed surreal, as stories such as these were pouring out at the same time the vote in key states was being certified for Biden.

And then Tuesday afternoon, the AP reported that Attorney General Barr had said that “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

Rudy Giuliani, speaking for the Trump team, released a statement claiming there was “ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states, which they have not examined. We have many witnesses swearing under oath they saw crimes being committed in connection with voter fraud. As far as we know, not a single one has been interviewed by the DOJ. The Justice Department also hasn’t audited any voting machines or used their subpoena powers to determine the truth.

But the dependable Catherine Herridge tweeted this: “From a DOJ spokesperson: ‘Some media outlets have incorrectly reported that the Department has concluded its investigation of election fraud and announced an affirmative finding of no fraud in the election. This is not what the Associated Press nor what the Attorney General stated. The Department will continue to receive and vigorously pursue all specific and credible allegations of fraud as expeditiously as possible.’”

By the way, in related news, AG Barr also said that as of October 19, U.S. Attorney John Durham has been appointed SPECIAL COUNSEL in the investigation surrounding the origins of the “Russia” probe. Durham’s work had been slowed by the pandemic and by (yes) additional information he uncovered. This appointment was made specifically to safeguard the probe in case Joe Biden became President. Unlike a U.S. attorney, who can be fired by the President at will and who in that case surely would be, a special counsel can be fired only by the attorney general and for specific reasons that include “misconduct, dereliction of duty, conflict of interest and other violations of Justice Department policy,” which must be documented in writing. Thank you, Mr. Attorney General.

If you’d like more details, RedState.com has plenty about the rules that apply to a special counsel. Very informative if you have the time.

Anyway, with Barr’s seemingly dismissive remark and the constant “gaslighting” from mainstream media and social media, it’s easy to start doubting your own eyes and intuition about what went on. You might feel just like the wife in this scene.

Her husband must work for CNN.

The Trump legal team presses on, filing suit on Tuesday in Wisconsin, claiming that officials there included 221,323 illegal votes in the recount and asking the Wisconsin Supreme Court to order Democrat Gov. Tony Evers to rescind certification until any illegal votes can be removed from the count. “...We know with absolute certainty illegal ballots have unduly influenced the state’s election results,” they said. Details here.

A poll observer told the Michigan state senate that in Detroit, the military ballots she saw looked like “Xerox copies” of the same ballot, all for Biden. That was just one of many concerns there. By now it’s clear that this election was an unholy mess.

And the beat goes on. If you’re into statistical analysis, this piece by Michael Horowitz has more about the outrageous numbers Biden would have had to get to win in Pennsylvania by the margin he did with mail-in ballots.

Here’s more detail on Pennsylvania, with some magnificent commentary by Paul Kengor at the SPECTATOR. Just one particularly suspicious batch of ballots could have flipped the state to Biden.

As for Horowitz, he hasn't made an accusation of fraud at this point. “These are not conclusions or closing arguments,” he says, “but these observations definitely warrant further investigation for one simple reason: The entire premise of having an election with one-third of the ballots cast through mail was built upon an illegal political decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which unilaterally overrode state laws, violating the federal Constitution, which vests state legislatures with the power over election procedures. It also violated the state constitution.”

Horowitz’ next words are so appropriate, I’ll let him sum up: “The suggestion that we should somehow move on from this is a greater threat to democracy than anything in our history. Republicans who think they can just walk away from this without controversy will learn the hard way in the years to come about their inability to win against this novel way of electioneering.”

In other words, believe your own eyes.

    We must unveil the TRUTH! We KNOW there has been fraud & illegal stunts going on! They practically showed their plan a while ago! We are NOT stupid but it seems that some have decided that our President & our Constitution & we the people are not worth fighting for! Do we have to take matters into our own hands? We cannot let them get away with this scam! Someone with some morals & some love for our country has to step up & take our country back from the evil ones who want to destroy it & us! NOW!

    If there is a slight chance that Biden won by fraud, then there should be a thorough and complete investigation into the ballots as to count and validity. The only ones not wanting this validity would be the people who have something to hide.

    What a shame...the Democrats didn’t seem to think that they could win, so they resorted to this! Is this what Democrats have done, in the past, to win, without this hoopla! My! My! My! I think, deep down inside, I thought there was a lot wrong when the Democrats won before! If you don’t have enough belief in your candidate, change candidates...don’t cheat! This does not represent who America is! But, realizing that it was the Democrats who did it...look at what we have to look forward to...lies and deceptions. That’s really a shame. It does such a disservice to America....THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD! If SHE were not, why would so many people come to her Shores to live, in Freedom, something, apparently, they were not getting from their own Country! AMEN!

    Are the Judges being paid off by Democrats? Fraud is Fraud. If you have dead people voting it's fraud, if you're having someone taking ballets Over state lines it's fraud. You Judges need to stand up for the people. I don't care if you're R or D do your job! One fraud is one to many!

    The Democrats, the media and even some Republicans would like to paint President Trump as a sore loser who refuses to accept the loss. I disagree. “If” these Democrats and their co-conspirators, the media, were able to pull off stealing the presidency for a man who keeps hinting he’s gonna resign...YES, we must investigate! We must get to the bottom of how a political party sought to steal the highest office in the US to gain world wide influence and undo America’s best interests, economic, threaten our 1st & 2nd Amendments and too much more to list. There will never be a fair election again if we just throw in the towel because we feel beleaguered, embarrassed or that he’s sore loser. He is not. He could go on his merry way, free from all this nastiness...but...He truly sought America’s best interest and he still does! There is too much at stake for this Country and he knows it and that’s why he fights for her, for us, even for the puppets who repeat what their told w/o real knowledge! No, he should not give up. Too much is at stake to hand over freedom to the the step-by-step socialist totalitarian agenda.

    We agree, if we don’t keep fighting for Trump’s win, we won’t have a Republican Party anymore, why even vote anymore! The Dems will always accept the corruption in our election system, we don’t care how much evidence you have, they get away with disregarding anything presented, they are all backed by their thugs & the thugs go after anyone who supports our President, even the witnesses! Hope they are protected! If the Supreme Court has the evidence why can’t something be done & reversed if Trump has the most votes! We don’t want a President that wins by corruption! We want a win to be fair & square, honest & true! Why do we even vote anymore! Our votes don’t count , we don’t count anymore! We don’t understand why a person can become a President who is supported by far left evil donors as in Soros and terrorist groups that hurt, kill and destroy cities, as our President, his people, the Party supports this evil! This should be against the law! Notice none of the dem mayors or govenors said nothing & did nothing when thes thugs did their damage of destroying cities why? They paid them to do it! This is part of the dem party and we believe the Dems paid people like this to rig the election! and .... are paying or threatening people to keep quiet! It wouldn’t surprise us! If Biden gets elected, we will never vote in the next election, the viting systems won’t be fixed, changed or repaired by then, leave it to the Dems it never will be! Sorry to say, if we don’t drain the swamp now, we’ll be totally outnumbered and living in an unsafe socialistic , no law & order sanctuary country by
    then! A very scary country, not to mention the rest of the insane things the radical Dems want to do, they are already talking about! Very sad that the Dems seem to have total control over & own everything these days
    Sadly, ??????????

    I watched the Georgia Senate Hearing which produced many, many witnesses to irregularities/fraud. It was a hearing that lasted 7 hours and produced so many witnesses and experts, I lost count. I believe GA will also stand up to the corruption and am hoping they preserve the rights of the American people. There was a very interesting Professor, who had also worked on the Bush/Gore matter some years back, who offered the aspects of this election vs. the Constitution and Supreme Court. Giuliani also shared alleged video evidence of fraud. It was a hearing held with such respect for all parties present. I was impressed to see such decorum and level heads hearing and asking questions with a true desire to come to terms with the matters at hand. Only one senator, a woman, played, in a way, the political card. Thank you for the orderly hearing.

    There are so many crazy things going on and this election is a mess. I think any reasonable person would have to conclude that there was election fraud the likes of which we have never seen before. What concerns me is that aside from the conservative media no one seems to care. I love this country and if something does not happen and this is allowed to stand who will ever believe in honest elections? I have never seen such venom as spewed from the liberal media CNN in particular. They seem to be a bunch of rabid digs and they distort and edit the news however they want. I feel like Alice in Wonderland who fell down the rabbit hole and is sitting at the Mad Hatters Tea Party. Lots of talking going on but nothing makes any sense all the while the Queen runs around screaming "Off With Their Heads" and the Cheshire cat sits in the tree and smiles.

    There is no way that many people would vote for Biden to run our great country. He didn’t know were he was and what he was running for. Hunter Biden story makes the Biden’s not qualified for office for our country
