Election Update: "THE ART OF THE STEAL"
November 5, 2020
No matter what the polls were telling us, we knew all along there'd be no Biden landslide –- far from it. The pollsters failed spectacularly to predict the voting behavior of our broken country, as we showed ourselves to be unresolvably split along ideological lines. And now that it’s obvious what's really happening --- all in line with the Democrats’ stated plan of “never” conceding and “counting every ballot” (whether or not it corresponds to an actual voter) --- Trump’s lawyers are fighting for the REAL votes to count, as opposed to the...well, the other ones.
I reported Wednesday that the Trump campaign is filing suit in Michigan to make them stop counting ballots until Republicans are allowed to see the process, which has been hidden from them.
According to the DAILY CALLER, Trump’s attorneys have also filed suit in Georgia, where the outcome remains up in the air and the support, as measured by the ballots, is virtually split down the middle.
Nevada is also still pending; as of Wednesday evening, there was only a difference of about 8,000 between Biden and Trump. The counting continues, and at noon Eastern Time Thursday, another “batch” of who-knows-how-many ballots is supposed to have been counted. It’s impossible to imagine that Nevadans WANT to elect a candidate who is more than ready to shut down their state, considering its huge dependence on tourism and entertainment. The first shutdown wrecked them, and President Trump understands what another one would mean.
Tucker Carlson spoke with Adam Laxalt, former attorney general of Nevada and state co-chair of the Trump campaign. As of late Wednesday, the ballot count showed Trump and Biden essentially tied in Nevada with 49 percent each. Laxalt said, “There is no question that Donald Trump would’ve won Nevada last night [Tuesday] convincingly if we did not move to mail-in ballots.”
He said Democrats in Nevada have “stacked the deck” (haha) against Trump. They changed the rules within 90 days of the count, and GOP poll watchers aren’t allowed to watch the all-important process of signature matching or flag any of the nearly 400,000 mail-in ballots being counted. When Republicans challenged this, saying they had a right to see the process, a judge sided with the Democrats.
So the GOP would just have to “trust” but not “verify,” he said. Never mind that an unknown number of these ballots would, of course, be from dead people, long-gone former residents, etc. “It’s just astounding,” he said, “that when you watch the news commentary...they keep acting like these systems are foolproof and there’s no way that any improper voter could get through, and it’s just simply not true.”
Moving on to Michigan, last night NEWSMAX called Michigan for Biden, with 50 percent to Trump’s 48 percent. But they reported the story we had earlier Wednesday, about the Trump campaign filing suit to be able to see the same process Mr. Laxalt of Nevada was talking about. According to Matt Sealy, a spokesman for the Michigan Conservative Coalition who himself was supposed to be able to watch the counting, “Right now, we’re watching a bizarre scene unfold down in Wayne County...where all the votes are being counted that were absentee and mail-in. They’re supposed to be able to have challengers wherever the counting takes place, and an observer, and on Wednesday, “basically, we were never able to have a full group of Republicans in the room. They locked the doors, they chained the doors...police presence was high, and every time we tried to challenge a ballot...we were told we were ‘obstructing the count’ and to ‘get out of the way.’”
"They are just doing everything they can to finish the count so that they can seal those boxes, and then we would have to go into recount mode.” At that point, he said, “you can never prove fraud.” A recount is just that, a COUNT, not any kind of verification.
NEWSMAX even had video of a Detroit counting location putting cardboard in the windows to keep onlookers from seeing inside. The Republicans locked out chanted “Stop the vote!”
"There’s a lot going on that we need explanations for,” Sealy said. Of course, as we reported yesterday, Rudy Giuliani was on his way to Michigan to assess the situation there, and he has filed a lawsuit to stop the counting. According to Sealy, though, as of Wednesday night the counting in Michigan was continuing, with Republicans still stuck outside.
Question: Say, why would they lock Republicans out and block the windows if they weren't trying to manipulate the mail-in ballot count? What other possible reason could they have?
And in a breaking story out of Michigan, James O’Keefe of Project Veritas was contacted by a whistleblower in the Barlow branch of the Traverse City Post Office who claims that his boss told postal workers on the day after the election to collect any ballots they found in outgoing mail, collection boxes or wherever, separate them, stamp them with the previous day’s postmark and put them through (that’s allowing voting after the election is over.) O’Keefe says he’s been contacted by a special agent of the USPS Inspector General about a possible investigation. It had better be more than “possible.”
As for Pennsylvania, Jeffrey Lord on NEWSMAX cited past stories from “distinguished news outlets in Philadelphia” such as the local ABC affiliate about people “voting in the grave,” with the names of people “who had been dead for 10 and 15 years but had managed mysteriously to vote in the last 5 elections,” and also a security lapse at a building that stored voting machines, with some equipment disappearing. Last but not least, a Philadelphia election judge was indicted for trying to steal elections using voting machines. We’ve heard (and told) all the jokes for years about dead Democrats voting and stealing elections, but this corruption has finally gone SO FAR that it’s no joke now.
On Wednesday, an additional 23,277 ballots were “found” in Philadelphia, all for –- you guessed it –- Joe Biden! Every last one. They weren’t even bothering to make it look good.
Giuliani says these ballots “could be from Mars.” (Insert your own Uranus joke here.) Watch him here at Wednesday’s press conference in Philly.
I’ll hold Arizona for now, as that situation is still developing --- just don’t believe what you hear and remember that it’s still very much in play. Only 93 percent of precincts had reported as of Wednesday evening, with a gap of less than 100,000 between the two candidates. Many Arizonans believe there’s been fraud there, too, and that will certainly be an issue.
As for Wisconsin, Wednesday evening Biden was ahead 50 percent to Trump’s 49, a difference of about 20,000 ballots, with about 99 percent of precincts reporting. Giuliani is calling for a recount, and also, according to NEWSMAX, filing “a slew of lawsuits” in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Kim Strassel of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL did the math for Wisconsin’s ballot count and found that it just doesn’t work with the number of registered voters. THE RIGHT SCOOP has passed along her explanation, which boils down to this: Wisconsin claims an 89 percent turnout. To get to that, Wisconsin would’ve had to have 900,000 same-day registrations! Yes, same-day registration is legal in Wisconsin, but what is the likelihood of that many? “I think it’s absolutely reasonable to ask what the heck’s going on with this,” she says.
We are NOT going to let this election be stolen. We’re doing this by the rules. This is not over by a long shot. We cannot allow the Democrats to use the kind of shady tactics they employ in local races, as revealed recently to the NEW YORK POST by a New Jersey fixer, to steal the White House:
If Americans can't trust their presidential elections to be fair and legal, then we will no longer have the United States of America. We'll be living in the world's largest Third World nation.
