HUGE UPDATE Monday afternoon: a big smoking gun

By Mike Huckabee

According to the forensics report by Russell Ramsland of Allied Security Operations Group, released Monday in compliance with a court order, crucial security and adjudication logs are missing from the machines. These logs go back years, but –- wait for it –- it’s only the ones from 2020 that are gone. “We must conclude that the 2020 election cycle records have been manually removed,” the report says.

"The adjudication process is the simplest way to manually manipulate votes,” the report explains. “The lack of records prevents any form of audit accountability, and their conspicuous absence is extremely suspicious since the files exist for previous years using the same software.”

What makes this even more suspicious is that the tabulation error rate for this election was a staggering 68.05 percent. Ballots that won’t run through the machine and be counted have to be manually adjudicated, a process where election workers decide how they should be counted. There were so many of these that they couldn’t all have been examined this way. This would explain, or at least partially explain, the very low rejection rates.

The allowable error rate established by Federal Election Commission guidelines is 1 in 250,000 ballots.

As we said, the report states, “This high error rates proves the Dominion Voting System is flawed and does not meet state or federal election laws. Because the intentional high error rate generates large numbers of ballots to be adjudicated by election personnel, we must deduce that bulk adjudication occurred."

But it goes on: "However, because the files and adjudication logs are MISSING [emphasis mine], we have not yet determined where the builk adjudication occurred or who was responsible for it.”

Investigators found that all security logs for the day before Election Day, Election Day itself, and the day after Election Day are GONE. “Security logs are very important to an audit trail, forensics, and for detecting advanced persistent threats and outside attacks, especially on systems with outdated system files,” Ramsland said.

Other server logs are present, so there is no reasonable explanation, he said, for these to be missing. These logs would have given us all of the following: domain controls, authentication failures, error codes, times users logged on and off, network connections, internet connections, times and data transfers. Right now, all this information is, shall we say, unavailable.

This is something it might be nice to be able to ask the good people of Dominion Voting Systems and their contractors about in a, you know, hearing. Preferably under oath. They’ve said repeatedly that their machines are “fully audtable,” and that might be true IF THE LOGS HAVEN’T BEEN REMOVED. But Dominion has not responded to requests from THE EPOCH TIMES for comment.

Bill Gates lets us eat cake, if we can find it

By Mike Huckabee

Bill Gates (who as one of the world’s richest men doesn’t have to worry about having no income and probably has a team of chefs to cook for him) told CNN’s Jake Tapper that “sadly,” it’s “appropriate” for bars and restaurants to have to stay closed for another four to six months, and that we might not return to normal even though 2022.

This despite a vaccine for COVID-19 starting distribution today, a study in New York showing that only 1.4% of infections could be traced to bars and restaurants, and the endless shutdowns destroying people’s lives and businesses.

Sen. Ted Cruz had a perfect response to this conversation in which a millionaire and a billionaire told suffering working people to just suck it up. It’s in line with my suggestion that no political leaders who order lockdowns should receive a paycheck until they’re lifted.

I’ll also point out how absurd it is that anyone should be taking advice on how to avoid viruses from the man who gave us the Microsoft operating system.

Response to SCOTUS ruling

Last week, I shared an article in the Federalist by Margot Cleveland, who has 25 years’ experience as a federal court law clerk. It was one of the few articles that offered a serious and respectful analysis of the lawsuit Texas filed against four other states over their illegal voting procedures. The SCOTUS rejected it without hearing it, ruling that Texas didn’t have standing to file, which left tens of millions of Americans furious and frustrated that something of such import was dismissed on a technicality without even hearing the evidence.

Today, Ms Cleveland has an analysis of the Court’s response to the suit, and again, it’s one of the best things I’ve seen on the subject. Unlike many pieces in the media, it’s not biased and is written by someone who actually understands the legal intricacies. Bottom line: by dodging the case, the SCOTUS failed the Constitution and the public.

In case you missed my Podcast: Candace Owens

By Mike Huckabee

On a special video episode of The People's Podcast, Governor Huckabee welcomes Candace Owens for a conversation about her legal battle with the so-called social media fact-checkers, the rise of tech censorship worldwide, how the Congress vs. Big Tech showdown will play out, the China-Eric Swalwell scandal, America's relationship with Russia and China, and the record number of Black voters supporting President Trump.

Gov. Cuomo call your office

By Mike Huckabee

I told you last week about Lindsey Boylan, the former staffer in New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office who said the work environment was so toxic, she needed therapy to recover from working for him. Well, she’s now made serious allegations of sexual harassment against Cuomo.

Boylan tweeted, “There are fewer things more scary than giving this man, who exists without ethics, even more control. I saw how he wielded power for years. He takes advantage of people, including me.” She claimed that Cuomo “sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched. I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks. Or would it be both in the same conversation? This was the way for years.”

Rumors have been swirling that Cuomo is a potential Biden Attorney General nominee, but I’m sure a President Joe Biden would never want to see someone who’s been accused of abusing a former female staffer elevated to a high position of power and authority.

More truth than the actual news

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s why liberal social media outlets keep trying to censor the satirical site, the Babylon Bee: their fake news stories contain more truth than the “fact-checked” mainstream media stories they endorse.

As leftists try to take control now, watch this from 1958

By Mike Huckabee

My commentaries occasionally refer to the brilliant book 1984, by George Orwell, who was inspired in 1948 by Stalinist tactics used in Russia to imagine a world of constant surveillance, deprivation and thought control. If the source of such words as Newspeak, nonperson, memory hole and thoughtcrime is still unfamiliar to you, then you must add 1984 to your reading list.

But there’s another fictional world in which the individual is destroyed, and that’s BRAVE NEW WORLD, written by Aldous Huxley in 1932.

Thanks to the news site LIBERTY DAILY –- which does the job THE DRUDGE REPORT used to do when it had sense –- we found a link to a prophetic 1958 interview between journalist Mike Wallace and Huxley. Everyone should see this.

It should be said at the outset that Mike Wallace was a powerhouse journalist. In later years, as a reporter on 60 MINUTES, he did go after conservatives like Ronald Reagan in a way that could irritate, but one didn’t get the impression that he was just shilling for one political party or narrative. His son, Chris Wallace, host of FOX NEWS SUNDAY, might want to think about that next time he tries to pressure a guest into saying Biden is the President-ELECT. To use a reference from 1984, it reminds me of the head of the Party making Winston Smith say 2+2=5. I digress.

Anyway, Mike Wallace was interviewing Huxley because of the author’s newly-published series of essays on the threats to freedom in America, called ENEMIES OF FREEDOM (also published as BRAVE NEW WORLD REVISITED).

"Who and what are the enemies of freedom here in the United States?” Wallace asked him. At that time, Mr. Huxley said he couldn’t really give an answer to the “who,” but he could see “impersonal forces” pushing us away from freedom. He also said there were “a number of technological devices which anyone who wishes to use can use to accelerate this process.”

This was 1958! Imagine if Huxley could see what we have now in the way of “technological devices” being used to accelerate the process of diminishing our freedom. Even his genius could never have foreseen it.

Instead, Huxley was contemplating such forces as overpopulation, not yet in America but in other areas of the world, as a reason to manage people’s lives. “Unfortunately,” he said, “in all these underdeveloped countries, the only highly-organized political party is the Communist Party.” He said they likely would be “the heirs of this unfortunate process.” And so they still are, in China.

The force at work in America he called “over-organization.” With increasingly elaborate technology, we need more hierarchical organization. (Conveniently, advances in organization have accompanied advances in technology.) More and more people live as “subordinates” in systems controlled by bureaucracies such as Big Business or Big Government. (Today, of course, we'd throw in Big Tech.)

When asked what specific devices might be used for control, Huxley mentioned the propaganda techniques used by Hitler to impose his will on masses of people. He said such methods weren’t being used in America –- remember, this was 1958 –- but they existed and were available, some more sophisticated than Hitler’s. “We mustn’t be caught by surprise by our own advancing technology,” he warned.

Huxley saw television as being used “quite harmlessly” (again, 1958) but foresaw it being used to control us. He noted that in totalitarian countries, it’s on “all the time,” giving out one message, “one single idea all the time.” (This sounds like Orwell’s telescreen, and also like CNN talking trash about Trump.) TV is “an immensely powerful instrument,” he said. "Morally neutral,” it can be used for good or evil.

When Wallace asked him what a future totalitarian state might be like, he said it might be very unlike those from “the immediate past,” meaning, I assume, Maoist China and Soviet Russia. Huxley saw future regimes maintaining control by gaining the consent of those being ruled. In BRAVE NEW WORLD, of course, the government uses a fictional drug called “Soma” to keep everybody content and cooperative.

But mostly they would do it with propaganda, by “bypassing the rational side of man and appealing to his subconscious, deeper emotions, and his physiology, even” so that he will be made to “actually love his slavery.” He’ll be happy, in a way, but “happy in a situation where he oughtn’t to be happy.”

Huxley said it was important to start thinking of these possibilities so we wouldn’t be surprised by the things that “people of bad will” tried to impose on us through technology.

In his essays, Huxley wrote prophetically about what was starting to happen to politics. Wallace quotes him: “All that is needed is money and a candidate who can be coached to look sincere. Political principles and plans for specific action come to lose most of their importance. The personality of the candidate, the way he is projected by the advertising experts, are the things that really matter.”

The advertising business was merchandizing candidates “as if they were soap or toothpaste,” Huxley told Wallace.

"Personality is important, but there are certainly people with an extremely amiable personality, particularly on TV, who might not necessarily be very good in positions of political trust.”

Boy, did he say a mouthful. Quick, how many of you immediately thought of “good ol’ Joe” trying to project likability from his basement. Can I see a show of hands?

Once science has found that something works, he said, you can be sure the technology behind it is going to steadily improve. So advertising would, he predicted, become more sophisticated. Participation in democracy requires a rational side, but advertising tries to bypass rationality and appeal to unconscious forces below the surface. “So you are, in a way, making nonsense of the whole democratic procedure which is based on conscious choice on rational grounds.”

This is exactly what we’re seeing today. Especially the part about nonsense.

He spoke about the danger of these techniques being used on children, who are the most vulnerable. “It’s not an immediate threat,” he said, “but it remains a possible threat.” I wonder what he’d say about the indoctrination going on in schools today.

The big take-away, I think, is Huxley’s emphasis on the importance of limiting centralized control and the power of “the group” in favor of the individual mind. He’d hate modern "safe spaces," "cancel culture" and “identity politics.”

When Wallace observed that Soviet Russia wasn’t a free society but didn’t seem to squelch artistic creativity, Huxley said that in such a society, the scientists and others doing creative work enjoy far more freedom than others, and a relatively high standard of living. They have PRIVILEGE. And that’s how I imagine today’s leftists see themselves in a future socialist society. They’ll be special while others (we) are the drones.

Ironically, it’s Orwell who comes to mind here: “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.”

We also found a must-read essay on the Huxley interview, written in 2017 by Frank Miele, that discusses Trump and the media propaganda machine targeting him.

    My recommended list which I most recently read is, 1984, Brave New World, Animal farm and Lord of the Flies. Each comes at the same point that freedom is being replaced by totalitarian rule. They explain the discomfort of the ruled and the comfort afforded the rulers. In 1984 he hero gives in. In BNW the hero commits suicide. In Animal farm the rulers become pigs. Only in Lord of the Flies is any hope offered when Ralph is rescued by the Royal Navy. Thank you for your comments every day which keep my boat afloat.

    I remember reading 1984 and Brave New World in the late 60's. Very popular books with teenagers. I see all this coming about in our lives.
    Joe has been repackaged as a compliant talking head for the real tyrants.
    At least 2 generations have been ruined and trained to be the new Brown Shirts.
    Interesting some years ago Soma was introduced as a sleep aid but quickly taken off the market!
    At this point I see every government agency including Congress and SCOTUS has been corrupted.
    It doesn't come as a surprise that few citizens trust our leaders to follow the Rule of Law and Order. Even many churches, denominations, and religious NGO's have turned to the left

    I will no longer be associated of any government affiliation. Never totally agreed with Democrats or Republicans. I and others I’m sure witnessed the decline of Republican Party power over the last 4 years. All the left criminals have displayed all unlawful tactics to remove President Trump. All Republicans had to know the election would be rigged, it was, and did Republicans have a plan? NO. All the hot air republicans, Fox News and you Mr. Huckabee just mouthed saying “smoking gun evidence” bombshell news just released and other worthless statements. All to keep us listening to so called Republican networks. I’ve never heard a Democrat called a DINO. With a few republicans leaving the party makes one wonder what they were hiding. Texas doesn’t need any natural resources from another state. I’m 100% in favor of seceding.

    How in the world could the US Supreme Court turn a blind eye to all the fraud? Are they all being paid off too? I am so concerned and disheartened that the USA that I grew up in, will be no more. What can any of us do? I cannot believe that CHEATERS can get away with this and win unfairly! I agree that martial law should be declared and a re-election take place with NO TECHNOLOGY only hand marked by living people and hand counted paper ballots by the military to get the real votes which would show President Trump indeed won in a landslide. But if this did happen and it proves that he is re-elected, what would take place next to protect every city from riots? Keep the military in place and arrest those who start any riots! And refuse bail for any of them! We have a large jail just in a small town NY that is now empty thanks to Cuomo and other jails that are empty in CA thanks to Newsome! Maybe we should have the Israeli military here in USA to oversee the protection of USA citizens to work with the US Military to ensure no more rioting and that the media needs to be held accountable too! and President Trump to be re-elected. I'm sure PM of Israel would help the US if needed. I heard this quote and wonder about it, 'good things fall apart to make room for even better things to happen'. Is God's plan in place right now to make people see how evil satan is and that He will make sure His plan will always triumph and satan will be destroyed? God's plan takes place in God's time, not man's time.

    The most recent election was fraudulent beyond doubt.
    The all branches of government including the Supreme Court have failed to uphold fundamental freedoms and personal liberties upon which this nation was founded.
    The Constitution has been eviscerated.
    To claim that we live in a representative democracy is just magical thinking and no one seems to care. There is no opposition to authoritarianism.
    So what do we do now, just start getting on the cattle cars?

    Please tell President Donald Trump that I'm truly glad he was the last president the republic had. In my opinion he is the greatest president the USofA ever had because of all he had to put up with and all that he accomplished in 4 years for the people. Yes I even think he's better than Lincoln because what did he have to put up with just some civil war. That pails in comparison to all the lies of the Left, and a coup that has actually destroyed the republic. History will note that it wasn't Trumps fault that the republic ended. God Bless the remainder of the former citizens of the US. God help all those who have destroyed it.

    So, my question du jour is ... With the Democrats pushing on to get Joe Biden to the swearing in ceremony on January 21, and the Republicans and other resistance finding more and more evidence of election fraud and corruption day by day, what happens if Biden is sworn in and some time after the swearing in the courts of appropriate jurisdiction rule that there was enough fraud and corruption to throw out more votes than needed to reverse the election? What is the mechanism to unseat Biden and to return Donald Trump to his rightful place for four more years? Who brings it? Who decides it? I would love to see Mike Huckabee address that question, or get someone to answer that question, ... soon. Otherwise, if there is no way to reverse the fraudulent election, why are we spending countless dollars and time to find more evidence of the fraud?

    I agree that both the novels mentioned have prescient details of many things that are happening now. Another novel - not as well known - but has huge overtones of things happening now, and what direction society might go - is
    "It Can't Happen Here" by Sinclair Lewis
    The truth is, (in Southern parlance) it might could happen here...if we don't keep standing in the face of this leftist treachery.

    I SAY WE THROW THE WHOLE ELECTION OUT AND RE-VOTE. They are destroying our country and it appears that the courts, DOJ, CIA, Attorney Generals, Legeslators, and anybody else, just don't care. They have all failed President Trump. So I guess we are on our way to the new "Reset America". I am anxiously looking up watching for the Lord to come get me outa here.
    God Bless you Mike

    I seem to remember that erased files were recovered by computer experts in several government investigations by FBI specialists, therefore it is possible that the missing information from the Dominion machines could be recovered if the machines were confiscated. Problem is, there has to be motivation by the government agencies and that just does not seem to exist. I do not trust the government to uphold the constitution or enforce any laws nor do I trust anything they state.

    How can anyone trust a government, federal or local that would purchase Dominion election equipment knowing it has the problems that were identified by the State of Texas prior to the election? If the Dominion equipment was already on hand, how can any government be trusted that continued to use them? Nothing about this election and its administration passes the smell test.

I vote those idiots/criminals zero out all votes, reset to pre-unconstitutional changes and vote over again! This time vote in person, with IDs like the rest of us did! Do all citizens of the United States have legal standing in this request? Of course we do! It’s a federal election! All state’s peoples will be affected by a new administration! You cannot disenfranchise 74 million voters! What nonsense!!! If they insist on this course of action, I call for a nationwide work strike to get their attention. Boycott every swing state that cheated. Nothing in nothing out!
