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.

Important Reminder

November 9, 2020

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.

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.”

Anyone surprised by the Democrats' no-holds-barred attempt to steal the Presidential election in broad daylight did not read Michael Anton’s pre-election article “The Coming Coup?”

We commented on this at length when it first appeared in AMERICAN MIND. Anton, a lecturer at Hillsdale College, is back now to say the coup is going according to plan.

In the earlier returns, Trump was defying the polls and outperforming his 2016 results in Florida, Texas, Iowa, Ohio and South Carolina. He was doing great in other key states as well, on his way to taking it. But then, ballot-counting STOPPED in the battleground states and things started to change. Trump not only stopped climbing, he started to go in reverse.

We’ve talked about how this is done --- about why the count has to be halted before fake ballots are counted --- but Anton describes it in detail in his segment “How It’s Done.” He points out that this is what they did to defeat Scott Walker in Wisconsin in 2018, Tom Foley in Connecticut in 2010, and Norm Coleman in Minnesota in 2008, in his Senate race against Al Franken.

This method, on a smaller scale, has a storied history within the Democrat Party. It has even dramatically CHANGED the course of history, as in 1960 when Sen. John F. Kennedy suddenly “won” Illinois after a last-minute influx of ballots from Cook County. Democrats waited until the downstate precincts (Republican) came in, and then they knew how many ballots from upstate precincts (Democrat) they'd need to win. They made up the difference so Kennedy would win by 8,000 votes, giving him Illinois’ 27 electoral votes.

How do we know this really happened? Kennedy later told a friend, journalist Ben Bradlee, that Mayor Daley had called him when the election was in doubt, saying, “With a little bit of luck and the help of a few close friends, you’re going to carry Illinois.” Sure enough...

And it sure seems to be happening again, because the results don’t make sense. As Anton says, “It’s hard to believe that an eight-point win in Ohio would be coupled with losses throughout the rest of the upper Midwest, or that historically deep-purple Florida would go strongly for Trump while Georgia and North Carolina would not.”

The problem we have now is that those in charge of running their state elections are also in charge of investigating them. Check out the viciously anti-Trump tweets from the person who oversees Pennsylvania elections.

And if Biden ends up controlling the DOJ, these abuses will never be touched at the federal level. The media are already saying that this is just Trump refusing to accept the election results. (I’ll pause while you fall to the floor, laughing helplessly.) Twitter is already “warning” against those who call this what it is or dare to question the result, while those who dismiss it as “conspiracy theory” will tweet to their hearts' content. And Hillary STILL maintains the lie that she "was the candidate that they basically stole an election from."

The challenges posed by the current scenario are immense. As for what needs to happen and what Trump should do, Anton offers these suggestions from REVOLVER NEWS.

1. Challenge every single ballot, if necessary. (I would add that a Georgia judge has already dismissed one of Giuliani’s lawsuits, so if it's time to go to the Supreme Court, so be it.)

2. Hold rallies in contested states. Every day! Express yourself, make a lot of noise, but be peaceful.

3. Urge GOP officials in close states to expose what’s going on, and in the event of a fake count, refuse to seat Biden electors. REVOLVER: “If there is clear evidence of electoral fraud in any of these states, then Republicans in the legislature have a moral duty to try to seat the correct slate of electors. There is clear precedent for this.” (It’s from 2000, Bush v. Gore.)

4. Mount an awareness campaign about the election being stolen and the need to ACT NOW. Anton would like to see the President on Tucker Carlson’s show explaining –- in a dignified way befitting his office –- what is happening. (He did do a press conference Thursday evening.) He and his best spokespeople need to be everywhere. Go around Big Tech, who will try to block you at every turn.

Here are more good suggestions from Andrew Busch, also in AMERICAN MIND.

I'd be remiss if I didn’t include their editors’ statement about the current situation, which they also foresaw.

The left, with all their blah-blah about “our democracy,” don’t care one bit about democracy, except as a means to an end (which, paradoxically, requires the end of democracy). As I’ve said, who needs Russia to interfere with our elections when we have these people to do it? If they're successful in getting Biden into the White House after so much blatant cheating, they will have succeeded in destroying our system, because we’ll no longer have any faith in it at all. America has no democratic foundation left if elections are going to be won this way.

The most frustrating thing right now is hearing election officials (and other partisans) say they don't see "any evidence" of election fraud. In a faraway place and time, they'd be the ones going on about how beautiful the emperor's new clothes are.

Finally, I’ll leave you with some stirring words from Newt Gingrich, as spoken to Sean Hannity on Thursday night (and please share this):

“I’ve been active in this since 1958; that’s 62 years. I’m the angriest I have been in that entire six decades. You have a group of corrupt people who have absolute contempt for the American people, who believe that we’re so spineless, so cowardly, so unwilling to stand up for ourselves that they can steal the presidency, and we’ll wring our hands, bring in a few lawyers, and do nothing.

"My hope is that President Trump will lead the millions of Americans who understand exactly what’s going on: [that] the Philadelphia machine is corrupt, that the Atlanta machine is corrupt, the machine in Detroit is corrupt, and they’re trying to steal the presidency, and we should not allow them to do that.

"First of all, we should lock up the people who are breaking the law. You stop someone from being an observer –- you just broke federal law. You hide and put up paper so nobody can see what you’re doing –- you just broke federal law. You bring in ballots that aren’t real –- you just broke federal law.

"I am sick and tired of corrupt left-wing Democrats who believe that we are too timid and too easy to imtimidate, and therefore they’ll just go out and steal it...You are watching an effort to steal the presidency of the United States, and this is not about Donald Trump. This is about the American people, [who] have the right, in an honest election, with honest, legitimate ballots, to pick their leader. Or are we now just sheep, to be dominated by the high-tech businesses, the news media, and the various political machines?...This is a crisis in the American system, comparable to Washington on Christmas Eve or...Lincoln at Gettysburg. This is a genuine, deep crisis of our survival.”

Gingrich said that in any precinct in which Republicans were not able to observe, the votes should be taken back –- “strip those votes out, do not count them, because they’re by definition corrupt.”

UPDATES: THE FIGHT CONTINUES

Late Thursday, the Nevada GOP sent a criminal referral to Attorney General Bill Barr regarding at least 3,062 instances of voter fraud, and they expect that number to "grow substantially." Thousands of people appear to have violated the law by casting their ballots after they no longer lived in Nevada. I call this criminal referral "a good start."

In Philadelphia, the Trump campaign obtained a court order to allow people, as the law allows, to watch the counting process. But they continue to DEFY THAT ORDER. A Philly prosecutor has reportedly threatened the President with jail if he shows up there. Another Pennsylvania prosecutor threatened to arrest the person who was hired to put video cameras above the ballot drop boxes, even though these are required by law.

As former Kansas Attorney General Phillip Kline told Laura Ingraham on Thursday, "We deserve transparent elections. You have admitted violations of the law involving tens of thousands of ballots by election officials. We CAN'T let an election stand where we have obvious and admitted violations of the law."
