Election Updates

November 26, 2020

The Trump team said legislatures in three swing states would hold hearings into campaign irregularities, but some legislators say that came as news to them. Here’s the latest schedule on what’s set to happen when:

The Thomas More Society’s Amistad Project has filed an emergency petition with the Wisconsin Supreme Court, claiming they have identified more than 150,000 potentially fraudulent ballots, more than enough to call into question the validity of the state's election results, in which Biden was declared the winner by only about 20,000 votes.

Walkaway founder Brandon Straka wrote a list of six things that Joe Biden should do if he wants to prove that he’s really serious about unifying America. Interestingly, #5 is “Call for a transparent audit of 2020 election.” What a great idea! Why hasn’t someone suggested that before?...

In breaking news Wednesday, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Judge Patricia McCullough has ordered state officials not to certify the results of the 2020 election, pending an evidentiary hearing on Friday.

She's not only ordered them to not certify, but also not to take any further steps toward that end. In other words, STOP NOW.

According to the story in THE EPOCH TIMES, this ruling regards a lawsuit brought by “Republican lawmakers and candidates” –- Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Kelly, Republican congressional candidate Sean Parnell, and Pennsylvania House of Representatives candidate Wanda Logan –- against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf, Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, and the Pennsylvania General Assembly. The lawsuit concerns “Act 77,” a bipartisan bill that in October of 2019 became law and expanded mail-in voting but that plaintiffs say would have required an amendment to Pennsylvania’s state constitution.

Pennsylvania has its votes counted (perhaps I should use quotation marks around “votes” and “counted”), but a number of steps still need to be carried out before the formal certification can be completed. The plaintiffs maintain there's no need to rush through these to certify the results, as Pennsylvania didn’t certify until December 12 in 2016.

Marc Elias, the Perkins Coie attorney who went from state to state in the months before this election, filing lawsuits and persuading officials to (unconstitutionally) loosen up the rules, called this lawsuit “frivolous” and “absolutely shameful.” I’d say that means it’s on the right track.

"It appears that respondents’ actions may have been accelerated in response to the application for emergency relief...in an effort to preclude any remedial action by this court faster than this court was able to evaluate this application for emergency relief and the answers to it,” the plaintiffs wrote.

In other words, it looked as though state officials were pushing ahead even faster so the judge wouldn’t have enough time to figure out what was going on and do anything about it.

Come on, man! That would NEVER happen…

Here’s a story about the many limousine leftist Hollywood celebrities who are pouring money into Georgia to try to help the Democrats take the two Senate seats and control the entire government.

And on that subject, Derek Hunter at Townhall.com has a list of some entertainment options for Republicans in blue states who are stuck at home under unconstitutional Thanksgiving bans. My suggestion for Republicans in blue states would be to go to the Internet and check out the U-Haul moving truck rates.

But these articles give me a good opportunity to promote something we’ve been working on for a while. I don’t like promoting political boycotts, because they hurt workers who had nothing to do with the leftist rants of the executives and stars of the projects they work on. But there is a positive way that you can enjoy entertainment without enriching leftists who call conservatives Nazis while, without seeing the irony, wanting to put them into concentration camps. That’s by supporting entertainers and movies that don’t threaten or insult you.

Be on the lookout for our Huckabee Newsletter Holiday Entertainment Guide, coming soon with recommendations and links for CDs, DVDs and streaming video that you can buy for yourself or as gifts with a clear conscience. They include music and clean comedy from performers who aren’t liberal political activists, many of whom have been on my show, as well as quality movies and documentaries with a conservative and/or Christian viewpoint.

At this writing, attorney Sidney Powell reportedly intends to file a lawsuit in Georgia on Wednesday. We’re not sure what it’ll cover, but some reports out of Georgia strongly suggest that we still just don’t know the real vote count there. And if this isn’t cleared up, not only is the presidential vote in doubt, but there’s no telling how it will affect the upcoming senatorial run-offs.

As Peter Svab reports in THE EPOCH TIMES, and Dan Bongino discussed in his Tuesday podcast, something very suspicious is going on with thousands of ballots in Georgia.

Bongino knows something about such allegations because in his early days as a Secret Service agent, he had to investigate cases of fraud that led him to discover Post Office boxes being used as residences. Criminals were using them as drop boxes; the Secret Service would stake them out and catch the bad guys.

This same type of falsification appears to have been done on thousands of ballot applications in Georgia, which require a RESIDENTIAL address. Keep in mind that the margin between Biden and Trump, with their “official” count, is less than 13,000 votes.

Matt Braynard, former data and strategy director for Trump’s 2016 campaign, noticed that many addresses on the voter rolls included information that didn’t make sense for the actual locations. So he and his team analyzed just a partial sample of the voter data and saw that thousands of registered voters in Georgia --- who are shown to have actually voted --- might have used addresses of commercial businesses or postal facilities and disguised this by making them look like residential addresses.

Some of these immediately look suspicious: An address that says “Apt. 4928” doesn’t really make sense, as an apartment complex typically doesn’t contain nearly that many units. Others with lower numbers would, of course, blend right in.

On November 22, Braynard tweeted: “Georgia: We have identified over a thousand early/abs votes cast by individuals whose registered addresses are in fact at post offices, UPS, and FedEx locations, willfully disguising the box numbers as ‘Apt,’ ‘Unit,’ etc.”

Whoever did this has broken the law. Georgia election law states that “the residence of any person shall be held to be in that place in which such person’s habitation is fixed, without any intention of removing therefrom.”

WITHOUT ANY INTENTION OF REMOVING THEREFROM. That’s the part that people in other parts of the country intending to “move” to Georgia just to vote Democrat in the run-offs need to consider. Unless they plan to continue living in Georgia for the foreseeable future, they are committing a felony by doing this. And the state of Georgia had better get tough on this or enforce that law, or their election in January will be steamrolled.

According to Georgia state law, anyone who “knowingly gives false information when registering as an elector” can be charged with a felony and imprisoned for up to 10 years or fined up to $100,000.

Braynard found anomalies in Pennsylvania as well. His team was able to contact by phone 1,137 Republican voters in Pennsylvania who requested a ballot but were not shown in state records to have had their ballots received or counted. Nearly 42 percent of those said they had returned their ballots, or thought they had. So, what happened to those ballots?

In Pennsylvania, over 160,000 uncounted mail-in ballots were requested by or in the name of registered Republicans. If we extrapolate from the sample Braynard was able to contact, with nearly 42 precent saying they returned them, that’s many thousands of votes not to have counted. Dr. Steven Miller, mathematics professor at Williams College, has filed a sworn affidavit of his findings, which says:

"I estimate that within a reasonable degree of mathematical certainty (based on the data I received being accurate and a representative sample of the population), the number of the 165,412 mail-in ballots requested by someone other than the registered Republican is at least 37,000, and the number of the 165,412 mail-in ballots requested by registered Republicans and returned but NOT COUNTED [emphasis mine] is at least 38, 910.”

Here are Dr. Miller’s findings from Pennsylvania with his detailed analysis, as presented in the affidavit.

But back to Georgia. Braynard’s survey concluded that in Georgia, a similar percentage of Republicans they contacted who'd requested mail-in ballots said they returned them: 44 percent.

As we reported, Georgia attorney Lin Wood got a major smack-down from Judge Steven Grimberg when he attempted to stop the certification of the state vote count. He was suing as an individual voter and campaign donor (not sure why), not acting as an attorney for the Trump campaign, and Judge Grimberg ruled that he lacked standing. So Wood has filed an appeal with the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals seeking an emergency review of that decision.

In a lawsuit against the Georgia secretary of state and other state officials, Wood is making an argument that Alan Dershowitz says has merit: the fact that state officials do not have the authority to change the rules for counting absentee ballots, because under the U.S. Constitution, state legislatures must do that.

State officials did this regarding the process for verifying signatures, without authorization from the Georgia Legislature. I believe Wood still has the same judge on this one, though, so don’t hold your breath.

Wood also had State Farm Arena, where votes were being counted, served with a subpoena seeking video footage of the counting process during and after the election. Recall that officials claimed the vote count there had to be halted for several hours because of a burst water pipe, which turned out to be a mere dribble. So, what were they doing in there for all that time the count was stopped?

Here’s more of an overview of what’s going on in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and, especially, Georgia.

Trump’s campaign has requested a machine recount in Georgia, which he’s entitled to do in such a close race. They’re also looking at a Petition to Challenge the election based, we surmise, on the suspicious registration applications detailed above, the ones that appear to be from non-residential addresses. There were approximately 1 million new voter registrations between November 2018 and 2020. Absentee votes cast totaled 1,322,529.

Even though the Georgia secretary of state has certified the results, Trump still has five days from that point to file such a petition.

According to RedState.com, there is anecdotal evidence --- not yet verified but certainly being checked out --- that numerous commercial mail-drop businesses had exhausted their supply of mailboxes as of this September and October. So the campaign is likely cross-referencing the street addresses of these commercial businesses with the addresses on voter registration applications to see if this was part of a scheme to inflate the Democrat vote.

Of course, just because leftists are openly encouraging people to “move” to Georgia to vote in the senatorial run-offs doesn’t mean Democrats would EVER have falsified their addresses there to vote against Trump. Certainly not! Win or lose, if Trump’s election challenge uncovers this kind of rot, it should be considered a public service to America.

President Trump gave the go-ahead to the General Services Administration to make funds available to the Biden transition team. But he insists that this does not mean that he is giving up his efforts to contest the ballot count in key battleground states.

That write-up also includes other developments, including Michigan certifying its vote, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court rejecting the Trump campaign’s lawsuit to throw out more than 8,000 absentee ballots that were missing key information, and the latest comments on the Trump campaign’s efforts by Rudy Giuliani and law Professor Alan Dershowitz.

And in updates on the updates (whew!), the Third Circuit Court of Appeals granted the Trump Team an expedited review of the Pennsylvania case. And the Michigan House agreed to hold a hearing into the Trump team’s allegations of election irregularities at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

Having already helped shepherd historic peace agreements between Israel and the UAE, Bahrain and Sudan with the Abraham Accords, and promised that more nations will join soon, President Trump is reportedly trying to craft a landmark agreement between Israel and Saudi Arabia. Fox News reported that on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flew to Saudi Arabia for a clandestine meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Saudi officials and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

An Israeli official seemed to unofficially confirm the meeting, but Saudi officials denied it, saying that Saudi Arabia has “supported normalization with Israel for a long time, but one very important thing must happen first: a permanent and full peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians.”

That’s what I would expect the Saudis to say publicly. Seeing the other Arab nations make peace and recognize Israel’s right to exist, and just hearing a report that Saudi Arabia is leaning toward it, should put pressure on the Palestinians to give up their rabid opposition to making peace with Israel. This is sending them a message that other Arab nations are getting tired of defending them. The message Trump is sending the Palestinians with these deals is that the peace train is leaving the station, and they can either make a deal and get on board or stubbornly refuse and hope that a President Biden will re-enrich Iran enough that the Mullahs will take care of them.

I know that Biden and his whole coterie of former Obama officials can’t wait to undo everything that Trump has done to replace their endless wars with peace in the Middle East. But Trump seems determined to make that hard for them by creating so much peace in the Middle East that even they, with all their diplomatic experience and expertise, will have a hard time screwing it up.

Say, remember the name “Hunter Biden”? Those who get their news from mainstream sources or social media probably never heard of him. But he’s Joe Biden’s son whose alleged shady international business dealings, particularly with China, were dismissed by the Democrats and their media stenographers as “Russian disinformation” (to use their favorite phrase) “without evidence.”

Well, while hardly anyone was paying attention, the Senate Finance Committee and the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs looked into some of the latest claims about Hunter from whistleblower Tony Bobulinski. They’ve just issued a supplemental report, and it shows that what Bobulinski gave them was consistent with other evidence they’d gathered showing millions of dollars being transferred from a company linked to China’s communist party to a company associated with Hunter Biden. There are more details here:

If Joe Biden gets into the White House and controls the Department of Justice, there’s no way this will be investigated other than by the Senate, which is reason #10,312 why it’s vitally important for the Republicans to win the two Georgia runoffs and maintain control of the Senate. If not, we might be conducting an experiment to find out whether manure still stinks if you sweep it under the rug.

The Atlantic magazine, last seen trying to convince us that President Trump called our World War I heroes “suckers and losers” based on anonymous sources, is now trying to convince us to cancel Thanksgiving. They must think that we’re suckers because the writer gives away his real motivations by describing Thanksgiving dismissively as “a nebulous day of atoning for the sins of colonialism by eating food and saying thank you.”

He tosses us a turkey bone by writing, “Next year will be an opportunity to be thankful for the elements of the holiday that we tend to take for granted. It will be like a Super Thanksgiving.” But then he gives away his and the Atlantic’s real feelings about cherished American traditions and we suckers and losers who revere them: “Or maybe this new way of doing it will work so well, you’ll never want to go back.”

Right, we’ll love being separated from our loved ones by fear and paranoia on one of our most important holidays that we’ll want to continue eating frozen turkey dinners alone while watching MSNBC on every Thanksgiving from now on, as I assume the staff at the Atlantic will.

Lisa Carr at the Victory Girls blog has more on the Atlantic article and the general war on Thanksgiving here:

Personally, I doubt that the Atlantic’s stance on canceling Thanksgiving will carry much weight, since every thinking person I know long ago canceled their subscriptions to the Atlantic.
