OKAY, ONE MORE: Answer to comment re: "fake" Maricopa report
By Mike Huckabee
On Friday, October 1, Guy B. wrote in response to “Who edited the final Maricopa County final audit report?” Here’s what he said:
Please check the Gateway Pundit (http://tilnyurl.com/2mdj7akn) article where the head contractor of Cyber Ninjas, Doug Logan says the draft you quoted is a fake, and that the paragraph with the total numbers, etc., was never part of the report. I expect to see a correction from you.
Thanks for writing, Guy, but I really don’t think a correction is warranted here. Certainly an update and a rationale for what we said, but not a correction. And we also still have questions.
In fact, that’s how our commentary in the September 28 morning edition started out, with questions. As we later responded to another reader, Howard A., who said we’d been “trolled” by a fake report, we had not just swallowed this story as some conservative sites had. Since we didn’t know how much credibility to give it, we used obvious qualifiers such as “IF this is true...” and “It has been reported...”
We specifically said, “NO ACCUSATIONS [emphasis added here], just questions.” So there is nothing to issue a correction for. All we were doing was asking questions and, in this age of fake news, trying to find out if it was true. As we told reader Howard A., “If just calling for answers is going to be criticized, there is little hope for enlightening discourse in this country.”
Even the headline, “Who edited the Maricopa County final audit report?”, was phrased as a question and worded so as not to accuse anyone of altering the report. Whoever was in charge of the final edit either did or not leave something out. We were in no position to say, but we wanted to know who was in charge of that final edit as we continued our questioning of the process.
The one reason we were inclined later on to give the report some credibility is that we’d gone to Patrick Byrne’s own website and found it there. According to reports, Byrne is THE biggest financial contributor to the Cyber Ninjas for the forensic audit, having raised $3.5 million for that effort. You’d think he, of all people, would have seen that word “decertification,” known the auditors hadn’t called for that, and recognized a fake audit report. But no, he put it on his “Deep Capture” website and also on Locals.com. As of this writing, it is still there.
We tend to think of Byrne not taking down that report as Sherlock Holmes might think of the dogs not barking. In itself, it’s not evidence of anything, but it’s something we still want to look into. The Arizona Senate is saying the document is not real –- that there was never a draft that talked about decertification –- yet the major financier for Cyber Ninjas apparently still maintains it’s real. That seems odd, so, naturally, we have questions –- the biggest one being, if that earlier version of the report is indeed fake, who gave it to Byrne? (It looks as though he’s the one who provided it to THE GATEWAY PUNDIT.) And why has BYRNE not issued a correction or removed the post?
THE GATEWAY PUNDIT did indeed made accusations, starting with the headline “Arizona Audit Final Audit Report Was Watered Down.” So in that case, if the earlier draft is a fake, a correction on their part is appropriate. We quoted from the draft but allowed from the beginning that the document might not be real.
Here’s the story in the WASHINGTON EXAMINER about the Senate’s announcement that the document was not real. Rather than decertifying the vote in Arizona, what the Senate has actually done is turn the audit over to the state attorney general’s office for further investigation. State Attorney General Mark Brnovich says he will take all actions he has the authority to do if the evidence warrants it.
Rod Thomson, a spokesperson for Cyber Ninjas, said that “the exact origin of the false report is unknown” and that no such version was ever sent to the Arizona Senate for review. So, again, the mystery to us is how that “false” version ended up being posted by Patrick Byrne.
The Executive Summary of the audit by Cyber Ninjas –- the REAL one, as far as we can tell –- does not call for outright decertification but does say that the County failed to cooperate and even actively interfered with their audit research, to the point where “full audit results validating the 2020 General Election are necessarily inconclusive.” The auditors recommend that “several specific findings of our audit be reviewed by the Arizona attorney general for a possible investigation.”
So, what do you know? Both the fake report and the real report say the auditors can’t validate the election results. Conveniently, the story about a fake report and conservatives getting “trolled” is a great way to pull attention away from the seriousness of the real report.
"An Act of Love"
By Mike Huckabee
Far-left House Democrats like the “Squad” members held a House hearing on abortion, and if you ever wanted to see the English language perverted to describe murdering babies in the womb as a “blessing,” “freedom” and “an act of love,” then this was your opportunity.
I think Redstate.com’s headline summed it up perfectly: “Abject Evil Appeared on Capitol Hill Today.”
News you can use
By Mike Huckabee
Just a few examples of questionable spending buried in the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion “Build Back Better” so-called “infrastructure” bill, such as $15 million for resource centers for older people struggling with their gender identity.
Also contained in the bill: taxes, taxes and more taxes. Grabien Media Founder Tom Elliot did what I suspect many Congress members won’t and actually read through the bill. He found that the word “taxation” appears seven times, “taxes” 69 times and “tax” appears 1,829 times. It’s always taxing to have to read one of these giant bills, but this one is even more taxing than most.
With opponents like this

Why didn’t I have opponents like this when I ran for President? A leftist group created an ad attacking Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for not imposing draconian anti-COVID policies. It backfired when viewers raved that it was a “pro-freedom ad” and it made them want to move to Florida and vote for DeSantis for President.

Voter trend analysis: Delaware MUST have 2020 audit
By Mike Huckabee
Add President Biden’s home state of Delaware to the list of states that need to do official 2020 election audits.
Delaware typically isn’t included on lists of battleground states, but before the election, polls were showing that the vote might be very close there. Not only would a loss in Delaware look bad for the senator FROM DELAWARE, but it would also cast suspicion on Biden victories –- legit or not –- in battleground states such as Pennsylvania. That made Delaware a state in which the motivation to cheat was very high.
As reported by NATIONAL FILE on Thursday, an organization called Patriots For Delaware publicized a “preliminary audit” of just 10 percent of the votes cast, which they say found over 20,000 fraudulent ballots. The report came out on September 28.
It includes examples such as the nursing home with a maximum capacity of 94 from which 296 votes were cast. Several other nursing homes were found to have votes of over 100 percent of the number of residents.
It also found that, curiously, hundreds of ballots from “uniformed and overseas citizens” used as their residential mailing address one of the three county elections offices in the state. Nobody lives in those places.
Another strange thing: In the months leading up to the election on November 3, almost 30,000 names were added to the voter rolls. Later, in August of this year, over 11,000 of those names were removed from the rolls. As NATIONAL FILE asks, why were so many names added to the rolls starting a few months before the election, and why are they being removed now? Why would 11,000 people “unregister” to vote in one month? Was this a legitimate attempt by elections officials to “clean up” the voter rolls? If it was, why did they wait till after the election to get rid of those late, questionable registrants?
It occurred to us that this is what it would look like if thousands of people from deep-blue states established residence in Delaware to vote in that state and then, in organized fashion, “moved” away. We don’t know that people did this, but if they did, that's just what we would see with the voter rolls.
Additionally, Delaware has a problem similar to one seen in battleground states; namely, the extraordinarily high percentage of adjudicated ballots. (That’s when human beings have to step in and determine how to count the ballot.) The FEC allows for .0008 percent of ballots to be sent to adjudication, but this time in Delaware, a staggering 25 percent of mail-in/absentee ballots were adjudicated, as for some reason they were apparently unreadable by the machines. (As we learned when we looked at "voting machine systems" in some of the battleground states, the sensitivity level on the machines can be adjusted to reject a very high number of ballots.)
Since the adjudication wasn’t supposed to be done until Election Day, how on earth could they have looked at that many? In the formal process of adjudication, each questionable ballot is supposed to be examined by a Republican, a Democrat and an election judge to “decide” the voter’s intent. We’re talking about over 47,000 ballots! How likely is it that this many ballots received the proper adjudication?
Patriots For Delaware has lots more questions about these issues and is calling for a full audit. They’re right to say the people of Delaware deserve it. Those citizens won't be able to trust future election results in their state unless this is done.
U.S. Senate candidate Lauren Witzke has looked at these preliminary results and thinks she might actually have pulled in at least 47 percent of the (real) vote in Delaware, perhaps even winning that seat. Read the memo from Patriots For Delaware and signed by Witzke at the NATIONAL FILE link.
As for the preliminary audit itself, it was conducted by Seth Keshel (not be confused with Kash Patel, who’s also in the news right now, for his investigative work to expose the Russia Hoax). Keshel is a former military intelligence officer and statistical analyst who, according to his report, “analyzed the trends of voter registrations vs. actual votes,” looking for divergence in “statistically unlikely ways.” As an example of the type of analysis he did, county by county, I’ll give you the most suspicious one:
“Sussex is 2.7% more GOP than it was in 2016 registration, when Trump blew it out. This is a MAGA county. Trump gained another 9k, only this time instead of Democrat column staying the same, Biden gained 17k, well against [registration] trends and above any reasonable expectation for home state advantage. Flagged red, 12k excess.”
He also notes that the state “final voted” file is 20,000 higher than the state total released by the state elections office. “Oops,” he says.
We’ve just begun to check out the many links at the bottom of his webpage, but it appears he has detailed reports on all the battleground states and also on such issues as “Unusual Vote Dumps and Spikes” and “Identify Vote Fraud Using Trend Analysis,” and much more. Typical weekend reading for us.
Anyway, Delaware’s vote count is apparently full of anomalies. The “Diamond State” is not very big, with just three counties, the fewest number of any state. So, let’s get on with the audit. Put Delaware under the microscope and check this diamond for flaws.
