There has been no real investigation of the fraud that occured in the 2020 Presidential Election. The mainstream media repeats that “It was the most secure in our nation’s history,” like a hypnotic mantra.

But there certainly has been no actual investigation other than the citizen investigations that that have been ongoing since November 4th 2020. When we all went to bed the night of the 3rd the numbers showed Trump winning by a landslide. But something mysterious happened in the dead of night. When we awoke the next morning the hallelujah press was praising the lord that China Joe Biden was the new president.

“It was the most secure in our nation’s history,”

Oh yea, that’s what it said under every YouTube with videos on the election.

AP has declared Biden the winner of the 2020 presidential election, in the most secure in our nation’s history,”

Then YouTube announced that the word FRAUD is verboten in their videos. They started beeping the word out like an expletive. It was starting to seem like we were living in an episode of the Twilight Zone.

Amid documented stories of “ordinary” US election fraud for the November 3 Presidential voting, including false ID, dead voters voting and suspicious one-sided mail in votes in key Democrat-run states, more evidence points to the role of highly sophisticated foreign actors, in concert with elements of the US deep state bad actors, making a brazen highly-illegal effort to topple President Trump and replace him with a more compliant, compromised Joe Biden, who will follow the Great Reset Agenda of the World Economic Forum and Bill Gates. At the center of this seems to be a group of murky private companies which since 2002 have come to dominate elections in not only the USA but also many other countries. If allowed to go unchallenged it will have catastrophic consequences not only inside the United States.

Today the companies which provide US voting machines and related software are dominated by three entities: Dominion Voting Systems of Toronto Canada, SGO Smartmatic of the UK, and ES&S of Omaha. Two of the three are foreign companies. That in itself is ground for concern. But it goes far deeper.

The 2002 HAVA Act

Before the 2000 US election where a thin margin of defective paper ballots, the famous “hanging chads” count, determined the election of George W. Bush, the role of computerized voting machines was very limited. In 2002 that changed, as Congress passed a law seemingly designed to end the problem with punch card ballots. Private companies have run elections since then.

On October 29, 2002, President G.W. Bush signed the “Help America Vote Act of 2002” (HAVA). The law created a new federal agency, United States Election Assistance Commission, to serve as a clearinghouse for election administration information; it created Federal funds to help states improve election administration and “replace outdated voting systems.” Finally the Act proposed to create minimum standards for states to follow in several key areas of election administration. Russell Ramsland, a cyber security expert who founded LI Security Operations, told a recent TV interviewer that the so-called minimum standards were never created. What the law did was provide funds to the states to outsource their election management to private companies like ES&S, Dominion, Smartmatic and some smaller ones. By 2018, these cyber electronic voting companies controlled 92% of the market share of US elections. No longer could bipartisan vote monitors theoretically insure election vote integrity. Computers, proprietary software and all their vulnerabilities were now in control.


By 2004 several young software professionals in Caracas, Venezuela were called in by the embattled socialist regime of Hugo Chavez to help him and his Bolivarian Revolution, backed by Castro’s Cuba, to survive a referendum. The previous Christian Democratic regime of Rafael Caldera had passed a law requiring automated voting and the US voting companies ES&S and the Spanish Indra Systems had established a presence in the country. ES&S was close to the Bush Republican Party.

In response to a bid process for the 2004 Venezuela recall election by Venezuela’s CNE election authority, a new consortium known as SBC Consortium was formed and won the bid to run the referendum counting process. The SBC Consortium comprised Smartmatic (51%), Bitza software (2%), and state telecommunications organization CANTV (47%). The Chavez-appointed R&D Software head of Bitza was Omar Montilla Castillo, a Chavez Government official. Smartmatic had been founded a couple years before by two Venezuelan engineers living in Florida, Antonio Mugica and Alfredo Anzola. The 2004 referendum was their first venture into voting machines. The pro-Chavez Floridians won the bid and were awarded $128 million, with Smartmatic retrofitting gambling machines to be used for the process. Apparently it wasn’t such a big step from rigged gambling machines to rigged voting machines for the clever Venezuelan entrepreneurs.

The Smartmatic consortium successfully falsified the referendum for Chavez. Chavez was behind 40% to 60% in polling. But in the election, Chavez pulled off a “miraculous” 52%-48% win. At the time the New York Times, then somewhat more objective than today, wrote, “Smartmatic was a little-known firm with no experience in voting technology before it was chosen by the Venezuelan authorities to replace the country’s elections machinery ahead of a contentious referendum that confirmed Mr. Chávez as president in August 2004.”

Vote Fraud with a British Face

Today Antonio Mugica sits in London, where Smartmatic now oversees a global network of computer vote rigging. In 2014, Mugica, together with British Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, announced the launching of the SGO Corporation Limited, a holding company headquartered in London whose primary asset is the election technology and voting machine manufacturer, Smartmatic. Mugica is CEO of SGO Smartmatic and his Venezuelan cofounder, Roger Piñate, also sits on the London board. Smartmatic today still has deep Venezuelan roots to corrupt Chavez and Maduro circles.

Mark Malloch-Brown, chairman of SGO Smartmatic is quite a key figure. As documented in excellent research by Matthew Ehret, Malloch Brown has been on the board of the Davos World Economic Forum, the prime driver behind the dystopian ‘Great Reset’ agenda of UN Global 2030. He has been also a board member of George Soros Open Society Foundations and Soros Quantum Fund. Soros is a major funder of Democratic Party candidates and groups, including BLM. Malloch Brown was a Deputy Secretary General of the UN under corrupt Kofi Annan and was Vice President of the World Bank. The Labour Party member is also a member of the highly secret Privy Council, an elite of some 500+ people selected by the Queen to run affairs of state. In 2008 just after the inauguration of Barack Obama as president, Obama’s UN Ambassador-to-be, Samantha Power, noted that, “The principal conduit between Britain and the Candidate [Obama] has been Lord Malloch Brown, the Junior Foreign Minister…” This is the person today heading the highly controversial voting systems group, Smartmatic.

Another board member of SGO Smartmatic in London is DLA Piper global CEO, Sir Nigel Knowles. DLA Piper was then the world’s largest law firm in 2014. Notably, Douglas C. Emhoff, husband to Kamala Harris, is a partner at DLA Piper. Perhaps just coincidence?

It gets more biased. In the United States Smartmatic has a four person Board. The Smartmatic USA chairman is Peter Neffenger, who has just been named to Joe Biden’s Transition Team. Neffenger was in the Obama Administration as TSA head. Fellow Smartmatic USA board member, Paul DeGregorio, was Chairman of the United States Election Assistance Commission (EAC) from 2003-2007. EAC was created by the 2002 Help America Vote Act and is responsible for “administering payments to states and developing guidance to meet HAVA requirements, adopting voluntary voting system guidelines, and accrediting voting system test laboratories and certifying voting equipment.” Sitting also with Neffenger and DeGregorio at the USA Smartmatic board is Gracia Hillman who also served as Chairman of the US Election Assistance Commission from 2003 to 2010 under Obama. Their website declares, “Smartmatic is the global leader in secure, accessible, transparent election technology & support services. We believe in equality and justice for all.”

To underscore what can only be termed extraordinary bias, two of four board members of Smartmatic USA were head of the US Government agency delegated to develop guidelines for voting systems and two were Obama Democrat appointees, one now a Biden adviser. That is OK for election integrity, or?

Sequoia Voting Systems—the Bridge Too Far

A company called Sequoia Voting Systems, founded in California, was a key link between the software and systems of Smartmatic and the other giant voting company implicated in huge USA 2020 vote fraud, Dominion Voting Systems of Canada. In March 2005 Smartmatic bought the California Sequoia Voting Systems from its then-owner, De La Rue, a British currency paper printing and security company. Smartmatic assigned a major portion of its development teams, to revamping Sequoia’s old-fashioned, legacy voting machines, and replacing their technology with avant-garde proprietary features and developments, which resulted in new, high-tech products.

The merged Smartmatic-Sequoia company was flourishing in the US market until a US Treasury investigation of Smartmatic’s possible ties to a foreign government, Venezuela, forced Smartmatic to sell Sequoia. They did so in an allegedly deceptive sale to Smartmatic US managers who were US citizens, under terms not made public, as SVS Inc., allowing the US Government to drop the investigation. But Sequoia, now called SVS Inc. of the USA, was still controlled by the Venezuelan-origin Smartmatics. Smartmatic retained ownership of intellectual property rights for Sequoia’s currently deployed election products in the United States.

In 2007 Princeton Professor of Computer Science, Andrew Appel, testified as an expert in a legal case in New Jersey involving the Sequoia Advantage voting machines that it was “very easy to replace the software inside a computerized machine so it tells the voter it is voting for one candidate but really puts the vote in the wrong column…You can even program it to do that only on election day.”

In the same year 2007, the California Secretary of State decertified Sequoia voting machines in the state election, declaring that the Sequoia voting machines allow the “insertion of a Trojan program via a malicious USB removable storage media device that could modify ballot definitions and results.” The ruling added that Sequoia voting machines could be made to “shift votes from one candidate to another and [the shift] was not detectable on the voter verifiable paper audit trail.” These are the same tricks of fraud being challenged by the Trump legal teams.

Next, this fraud-ridden Smartmatic-controlled Sequoia Voting Systems, aka SVS Inc., was bought on June 4, 2010 by a previously obscure Canadian company, Dominion Voting Systems, a company engaged in manufacturing electronic voting hardware and optical scanners.

Dominion Voting Systems

At the time Dominion of Canada bought Sequoia SVS Inc, the latter had contracts for 300 jurisdictions in 16 states. Suddenly Dominion, via Sequoia via Smartmatic of London, was a major player in the increasingly corrupt business of computerized voting in the USA. In short, Smartmatic bought US-based Sequoia, put its technology into Sequoia, and then sold it to Dominion.

However, further insuring that the Canadian Dominion would remain opaque to scrutiny, in 2018 the company was taken over as a private company by its employees together with an opaque private equity firm, Staple Street Capital of New York, allowing them to claim being a “US-owned” company, despite its headquarters in Canada. What little that is known about Staple Street, the new owners of Dominion is that several came from the controversial private equity giant, Carlyle Group Partners. William Kennard, former Obama appointee as EU Ambassador and Bill Clinton appointee as FCC chairman and former Managing Director of the Carlyle Group is in Staple Street Capital.

Hootan Yaghoobzadeh and Stephen D. Owens, both of Staple Street, are on the new Dominion board with Canadian founder, John Poulos. Both also have past ties to the Carlyle Group. The contested State of Georgia has eight registered Dominion lobbyists including Jared Thomas, former chief of staff for Republican Governor Brian Kemp. The Georgia recount had been riddled with bipartisan corruption. Additionally, the Dominion Voting Systems company has admitted being a past donor to the Clinton Foundation and to hiring the former Chief of Staff of Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, one Nadeam Elshami as a lobbyist.

In 2016 Dominion Vice President Dr. Eric Coomer was asked if it was possible to bypass election systems software and go directly to the data tables that manage systems running elections in Illinois. He replied, “Yes, if they have access.” Asked who that included, he replied, “Vendors, election officials, and others who need to be granted access.” The same Coomer in 2020 was discovered posting Facebook posts favorable to BLM and attacking Trump.

In the 2020 election Dominion was responsible for some 50% of all votes in 30 states and was dominating in every state where the outcome is being contested by the Trump legal teams, namely in Nevada, Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia. The contested states all swung to Democrat Biden from initial huge leads for Trump. In dozens of voting districts across those states using Dominion systems, the vote tally produced statistically impossible voter statistics, such as 100% or 105% voter turnout or even higher. That would even make Kim Jong-Un envious.

Remember the story about the firefight between CIA and Special Forces told by Sidney Powell, while the CiA was hacking the 2020 Election? Look at this from WikiLeaks:

U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt is a covert CIA hacker base

In addition to its operations in Langley, Virginia the CIA also uses the U.S. consulate in Frankfurt as a covert base for its hackers covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

CIA hackers operating out of the Frankfurt consulate ( “Center for Cyber Intelligence Europe” or CCIE) are given diplomatic (“black”) passports and State Department cover. The instructions for incoming CIA hackers make Germany’s counter-intelligence efforts appear inconsequential: “Breeze through German Customs because you have your cover-for-action story down pat, and all they did was stamp your passport”

Your Cover Story (for this trip)

Q: Why are you here?

A: Supporting technical consultations at the Consulate.

Two earlier WikiLeaks publications give further detail on CIA approaches to customs and secondary screening procedures.

Once in Frankfurt CIA hackers can travel without further border checks to the 25 European countries that are part of the Shengen open border area — including France, Italy and Switzerland.

A number of the CIA’s electronic attack methods are designed for physical proximity. These attack methods are able to penetrate high security networks that are disconnected from the internet, such as police record database. In these cases, a CIA officer, agent or allied intelligence officer acting under instructions, physically infiltrates the targeted workplace. The attacker is provided with a USB containing malware developed for the CIA for this purpose, which is inserted into the targeted computer. The attacker then infects and exfiltrates data to removable media. For example, the CIA attack system Fine Dining, provides 24 decoy applications for CIA spies to use. To witnesses, the spy appears to be running a program showing videos (e.g VLC), presenting slides (Prezi), playing a computer game (Breakout2, 2048) or even running a fake virus scanner (Kaspersky, McAfee, Sophos). But while the decoy application is on the screen, the underlaying system is automatically infected and ransacked.

  1. The Biden Regime Threatens Pogroms Against Trump Supporters:

    “Domestic terrorism — driven by hate, bigotry, and other forms of extremism — is a stain on the soul of America,” Biden said in a prepared statement released by the White House while he is traveling in Europe. “It goes against everything our country strives for and it poses a direct challenge to our national security, democracy, and unity.”

    “We have to take both short-term steps to counter the very real threats of today and longer-term measures to diminish the drivers that will contribute to this ongoing challenge to our democracy,” he added.

    Biden’s focus on far-right domestic violent extremists stands in sharp contrast to the Trump administration’s approach, which largely downplayed it and instead viewed left-wing militancy as a greater threat.

    The new strategy grew out of an assessment of domestic terrorism Biden directed during his first week in office amid heightened concern prompted by the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of former president Donald Trump. A sprawling FBI investigation into the attack has resulted in the arrests of nearly 500 people.

    In an unclassified report in March, the U.S. intelligence community said domestic violent extremists posed an “elevated threat” to homeland security in 2021, with violent white supremacists and anti-government militias representing the most “lethal threat.” The FBI views the threat posed by racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists on the same footing as the threat posed by the Islamic State terror group, an assessment it first made in 2019.

    FILE – U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland speaks at the Justice Department in Washington, June 11, 2021.

    Outlining the plan to a group of administration officials tasked with carrying out Biden’s new strategy, Attorney General Merrick Garland said the threat of domestic terrorism is rapidly evolving. Citing FBI Director Christopher Wray, Garland said, “We continue to observe actors driven by a diverse set of violent motivations, sometimes personalized and developed from a mix of violent ideologies.”

    As part of the plan, the president’s budget proposal for fiscal year 2022 includes $100 million in additional funds for the Justice Department, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security. A senior administration official briefing reporters on the strategy said the money will be used to hire analysts, investigators, prosecutors, and other personnel — “resources that we need to thwart domestic terrorism and bring domestic terrorists to justice when the law has been broken.”

    But Garland said deterring and disrupting attacks alone won’t put an end to domestic terrorism.




    1. Senate Hearing on the Election Audit in Maricopa County – July 15, 2021

      Doug Logan the CEO of Cyber Ninjas described how there were several ballot boxes with duplicated ballots!

      This was a powerful segment from Thursday’s hearing.

      Doug Logan then went on to display examples of several ballots on wrong paper stock.

      Jovan Pulitzer posted the image of the off-track ballots.




      1. Former President Donald Trump issued a statement on Friday saying that the Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County election audit show sufficient levels of fraud and voting irregularities to change the outcome of the presidential election.

        “Arizona has strong State Senators willing to fight for the truth,” Trump said in a July 16 statement, adding that the hearing “shows Fraud and Voting Irregularities many times more than would be needed to change the outcome of the Election.”

        The former president also took aim at media outlets reporting “no fraud” found in the presidential election while citing several lawmakers calling for the election to be decertified.

        Arizona’s GOP-led state Senate on Thursday held a hearing amid a months-long forensic audit of election results in Phoenix’s Maricopa County, led by Florida-based cybersecurity firm Cyber Ninjas. Teams conducting the audit said at the hearing that they found several major discrepancies.

        Doug Logan, CEO of Cyber Ninjas, told senators at the Arizona state Capitol that auditors could find no record of the county sending more than 74,000 mail-in ballots. He also said auditors found approximately 18,000 people voted but were removed from voter rolls “soon after the election, 11,326 people who were not on the voter rolls on Nov. 7, 2020, but appeared on the rolls on Dec. 4, 2020, and 3,981 people who voted after registering after Oct. 15, 2020.”




      2. Tucker Carlson highlights Georgia voter fraud allegations

        In response to a move in states across the country to tighten election security laws, prevent vote fraud, and restore Americans’ faith in the process of selecting leaders, President Joe Biden has hyperbolically denounced such efforts as “21st Century Jim Crow” and “the most significant threat to Democracy since the Civil War.”

        However, as Tucker Carlson revealed in a bombshell Fox News segment on Wednesday, the need for such reforms is very real, according to shocking evidence of double-counted ballots, fraudulent tally sheets, and irregularities with mailed-in votes in Fulton County Georgia during the 2020 presidential election.

        The Fox prime time host devoted substantial attention during his broadcast to showcasing the findings of a group called VoterGA, which has been seeking a re-scanning of ballots in that part of the state as well as a review of a number of other alleged irregularities leading up to the narrow – and some believe highly suspect – certification of Biden as the winner of the presidential race there.

        According to Carlson, despite the incessant admonitions from the mainstream media as well as Fulton County officials that such reviews have already occurred and that the results were accurate, “it now appears that there actually was meaningful voter fraud” there in November. …That is not a conspiracy theory. It’s true,” he declared.

        In support of his contention, Carlson explained, “So here’s what we know tonight, factually. At least 36 batches of mail-in ballots from the November election were double-counted in Fulton County. That’s a total of more than 4,000 votes. …The final tally from the double counts amounts to more than 3,300 votes for Joe Biden and 865 votes for Donald Trump.”

        As Carlson also noted, Fulton County had long refused access to what are known as audit tally sheets for mail-in ballots, but once VoterGA finally obtained them, it was discovered that there were seven “falsified audit tally sheets containing fabricated vote totals,” adding:

        The seven batches of ballot images with 554 votes for Joe Biden, 140 votes for Donald Trump and 11 votes for Joe Jorgensen had tally sheets in the audit falsified to show 850 votes for Biden, zero votes for Trump, and zero votes for Jorgensen.

        Compounding doubt over the validity of Fulton County’s vote count, according to Carlson, are whistleblower photographs that show stacks of mail-in ballots that were unfolded and reportedly filled in with a printer, not by hand.

        Carlson concluded his segment by lamenting the fact that Americans who are rightly concerned about scenarios such as what seems to have occurred in Fulton County are told over and over again that to ask questions or seek additional safeguards for the electoral process is to deliberately and maliciously undermine democracy.

        Indeed, this “perfect inversion of the truth,” as Carlson put it, is the true threat to our system, and it is incumbent on voters everywhere to demand the truth and take active steps to ensure that electoral security is restored before it is too late.




    2. Georgia’s ineffectual and arguably unethical secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, is demanding that election officials in Fulton County be fired for mishandling an election that he certified.

      Remember when The Washington Post released a leaked phone call between Raffensperger and former President Donald Trump?

      “President Trump held an hour-long call with Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s secretary of state, in which he repeatedly urged him to alter the outcome of the presidential vote in the state,” the Post reported on Jan. 5.

      The left-wing outlet made a big deal out of Trump’s phone call about the mess in Fulton County.

      BREAKING: Ilhan Omar HUMILIATED By Trump Supporter
      But the “reporting” proved to be just another smear attempt when the Post issued a late correction in March.

      “The Georgia secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s December phone call with the state’s top elections investigator. The recording revealed that The Post misquoted Trump’s comments on the call. … Trump did not tell the investigator to ‘find the fraud’ or say she would be ‘a national hero’ if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find ‘dishonesty’ there. He also told her that she had ‘the most important job in the country right now.’”

      Trump wanted scrutiny in Fulton County, and instead Raffensperger and others stabbed him in the back. Now, Raffensperger is laughably calling for the firing of officials in Fulton County over double-counted ballots in the 2020 election.

      “Fulton County’s continued failures have gone on long enough with no accountability. Rick Barron and Ralph Jones, Fulton’s registration chief, must be fired and removed from Fulton’s elections leadership immediately. Fulton’s voters and the people of Georgia deserve better,” he tweeted last week.

      The demand from Raffensperger came after The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that roughly 200 absentee ballots were double-scanned in Fulton County in November.

      Raffensperger also called for election integrity measures in a statement to the Daily Caller.

      “Every time we think we’ve reached the peak of Fulton’s elections mismanagement issues, more comes to light,” he told the outlet. “I’ve been calling for change in Fulton since day one. Maintaining public confidence in our elections begins in Fulton County.”

      The Georgia secretary of state might now claim he was busy pushing for “change,” but he is on the record immediately after the election undermining Trump’s calls to address mismanagement issues.

      Raffensperger is now playing the role of the tough public servant, hoping we’ve forgotten that he was the one who made sure Fulton County’s results were certified in the first place.

      If he’d like to ensure Fulton County’s next election isn’t as poorly handled as the last one, he should start by resigning.




  2. Gen. Mark Milley Compared Trump Supporters To Nazis: ‘These Are The Same People We Fought In World War II’

    General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, compared supporters of former President Donald Trump to Nazis, according to a new book.

    Milley, who has been widely criticized for being “woke,” claimed that Trump was preaching “the gospel of the Führer” when he contested the results of the 2020 election and claimed that Trump had led the U.S. to the brink of its own “Reichstag moment,” a reference to an incident in 1933 that Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler used to consolidate political power in Germany.

    New York Magazine reported:

    … the general’s worries grew rapidly as the president plunged the nation into chaos following Election Day. Seven days later, Milley got a call from “an old friend” with an explicit warning that Trump and his allies were trying to “overturn the government.” Milley was confident that any attempts by Trump to hold on to power would be thwarted, because the military wouldn’t go along. “They may try, but they’re not going to fucking succeed,” he told aides. “You can’t do this without the military. You can’t do this without the CIA and the FBI. We’re the guys with guns.”

    The book says that Milley responded to the January 6 riot by saying, “These guys are Nazis, they’re boogaloo boys, they’re Proud Boys. These are the same people we fought in World War II.”

    The report concludes by saying that Milley told Michelle Obama on Biden’s inauguration day that “no one has a bigger smile today than I do. You can’t see it under my mask but I do.”

    A separate book documented a separate incident that happened with Milley when Trump was in office in which Milley snapped at Senior White House Adviser Stephen Miller after Miller warned Trump that far-left riots were destroying America last summer.

    The allegations are made in a new book by a Wall Street Journal reporter who released excerpts to CNN, which reported:

    During one Oval Office debate, senior Trump adviser Stephen Miller chimed in, equating the scenes unfolding on his television to those in a third-world country and claiming major American cities had been turned into war zones.

    “These cities are burning,” Miller warned, according to the excerpts.

    The comment infuriated Milley, who viewed Miller as not only wrong but out of his lane, Bender writes, noting the Army general who had commanded troops in Iraq and Afghanistan spun around in his seat and pointed a finger directly at Miller.

    “Shut the f–k up, Stephen,” Milley snapped, according to the excerpts.

    Milley stirred controversy during a recent hearing in front of Congress in which he said he wanted to understand “white rage” and that he found it “offensive” that he was being accused of turning the military “woke” because “we’re studying some theories that are out there.”

    1. It’s Happening! Door-to-Door Vaccine Push has Begun, Here’s What It Looks Like

      A new video shows the door-to-door push for vaccines is already happening. The video notes a Western Journal report that details the efforts in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. The door to door volunteers not only stop by to encourage residents to take the vaccine, but if they have not, can offer the shot in their own home!

      The effort is currently targeting zip codes that have low percentages of vaccinated residents. It began Monday at a Charlotte apartment complex called Southside Homes. Four people in the Charlotte neighborhood chose to take the jab following the visits.

      But the video says it’s safe to say that by now, most people who wanted to get the vaccine have already done so. The rest of Americans want to be left alone to go about their lives without being reminded of the vaccine at every turn.

      Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be happening any time soon. Biden’s buddies may continue their knock-knock program for some time. If you don’t like it, better get your jab before someone comes by to offer it to you in your own living room.

      2. Arizona Audit UPDATE: Maricopa County Continues To Claim Their Innocence
        August 14, 2021

        On Wednesday, Maricopa County tweeted about the previous audits that they performed themselves with “certified, professional auditors”

        The Gateway Pundit has reported extensively on the County-led audits. We previously reported that the two companies chosen to conduct this audit were not certified until AFTER they were chosen.

        Maricopa County tweeted:

        Maricopa County
        Aug 4
        Our election professionals and Board members have complied w/Senate demands & supplied everything professional auditors would need to do their job.
        In fact, you can find results from 2 audits performed by certified companies the County hired here: https://maricopa.gov/5681/Elections-Equipment-Audit #azaudit

        It also appears that the same companies used to audit these machines were the same ones that certify machines are safe to use in the first place. How is this not a conflict of interest?

        Extreme leftist Secretary of State Katie Hobbs also shared a tweet featuring a video where Rachel Maddow refers to these “full-on actual recounts” in another classic Maddow meltdown.

        Hobbs also blames the Arizona Senate for the lack of confidence in Arizona’s elections and labels this audit an embarrassment.

        Katie Hobbs
        I’m fighting the #fraudit at every turn because:

        1⃣ it’s unnecessary – we’ve already audited this election;
        2⃣ the Cyber Ninjas are embarrassing Arizona;
        3⃣ it’s undermining confidence in our elections & promoting future election interference.

        Watch my new video to learn more:

        The audits that were performed on the behalf of the County were not full forensic audits. The “audits” were extremely limited in scope.

        Source Code Tests only tested 20% of Election Day Tabulators and 40% of Adjudication Stations. Pro V&V and SLI Compliance found that all software and equipment inspected was using certified software and was not modified.
        Malicious Software and Hardware Tests only tested 20% of Election Day Tabulators and 40% of Adjudication Stations. Pro V&V and SLI Compliance found no instances of malicious software or hardware installed on the tabulators or system.
        Network Connectivity Tests found no evidence of internet connectivity.
        Accuracy Tests found no evidence of vote switching and concluded that the equipment tabulated and adjudicated ballots accurately.
        These audits were a joke. The County says that they forensically examined this equipment but did they really?

        How could they say there was no evidence of vote switching? The Gateway Pundit previously reported that they did not even check a key component.

        The Arizona Senate’s full forensic audit aims to examine everything that the County frauditors failed to look at including all 2.1 million ballots. We are expecting the final report to show a difference in the certified total and the actual total.

        The auditors only looked at a fraction of the machines and adjudication stations and after a closer look, more questions need to be answered.

        It has been found that many problems happened on election day with the sharpiegate debacle, misprinted ballots and the fact that Trump voters rushed the polls for in-person voting.

        More problems were found with ballot adjudication and duplication when ballot serial numbers were discovered to be inconsistent.

        The Arizona Senate hearing with audit officials on July 15, left Maricopa County voters with questions that still go unanswered.

        Who ran a script with 37,646 queries to delete Windows Security Event Logs prior to February 5th, 2021?

        Why do multiple original ballots have the same serial numbers with only one duplicate ballot to correspond?

        Why were ballots printed with offsets of up to 3200%?

        Why were the same passwords used with different user accounts?

        Why were the passwords not changed regularly?

        Why doesn’t the certified total match the total sent to the audit?

        Why did the other audits not find these issues?

        Why did Maricopa County fight tooth and nail against a full forensic audit?

        The County’s audit was so limited that SLI Compliance claimed that it must not be used by anyone to claim the 2020 Election results were fine and accurate in Maricopa County, but that is exactly what the Democrats and RINOs did.

        SLI Compliance: All evaluation conducted for this engagement has been done outside of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s (EAC) Test and Certification Program.

        This audit did not do much more than the Logic and Accuracy tests which were performed prior to certifying the equipment and after using it.

        When is it a good idea to let the auditee audit themselves?




  3. In the aftermath of the January 6 Capitol riots, already-reeling Americans were shocked by another brazen assault on a hallowed American institution: Big Tech’s coordinated crackdown on freedom of speech.

    Depending on your politics, you might have been inclined to cheer rather than boo when Twitter and Facebook booted then-President Trump, and when Amazon, Google, and Apple joined forces to shut down Parler. To be sure, many of the instigators of the January 6 uprising might have morally forfeited their privilege of free speech. Some probably even deserved prosecution. Any thoughtful American, however, should be troubled by the realization that such retaliation no longer proceeded by due process of law, but by summary verdicts of hidden tribunals with zero legal authority but immense economic power. Effective control of public deliberation and political action in America is quickly passing into the hands of an unelected oligarchy to whom most of us have casually signed away our rights in return for the fleeting gratification of a Like button.

    Senator Josh Hawley’s new book The Tyranny of Big Tech, itself cancelled by its original publisher in the massive post–January 6 backlash, is a passionate and powerful clarion call for conservatives to wake up to this new political reality. For too many decades, conservatives in America have casually assumed that the chief (or perhaps the only) threat to freedom lay in the state, and the federal government in particular. Concentrations of market power, if noticed at all, were celebrated as monuments to the great profit-generating capacity of free enterprise, and the internet was naïvely cheered as a new engine of individual empowerment. Conservatives of a former era knew better: that unchecked economic power can threaten liberty as surely as political power—indeed, more so, if the latter is responsible to representative institutions and the former is not. Senator Hawley is in the vanguard of an emerging group of conservatives seeking to recover the American people’s control over their own destiny.

    If that weren’t bad enough, The Social Dilemma also explored an unintended side effect of this regime of titillation: by rewarding the content that is best calculated to outrage us, appealing to our basest instincts, and herding us together into echo chambers, the new digital domain has fractured and polarized political discourse. Belatedly recognizing the dangers of this beast, Big Tech providers have tried to own up to their role as effective sovereigns of this domain and have exercised these sovereign powers to shape political discourse and social attitudes through deft use of algorithms and increasingly brazen censorship.

    The baleful results of such pseudo-sovereignty should hardly surprise us. After all, as Adam Smith observed in The Wealth of Nations, monopolistic businesses make poor sovereigns: “As sovereigns, their interest is exactly the same with that of the country which they govern. As merchants, their interest is directly opposite to that interest.”

      1. Trump Spokeswoman Warns: No ‘Next Election’ Without Repairing 2020 Contest
        July 21, 2021

        The U.S. has to “fix” what happened in the 2020 election otherwise there’s not going to be a “next election,” said Liz Harrington, former President Donald Trump’s spokeswoman, in a televised interview.

        “When all these Republicans and RINOs (Republican In Name Only) suddenly start pretending like they cared about election integrity, it’s always the next election,” she said. “Well, what the base is focused on, what the average American is focused on, regardless of your party if you were paying attention during the election, what you were focused on, is we can never allow this to happen again. And we have to fix what happened in 2020 or otherwise there’s not going to be a next election,” Harrington told One America News Network’s Natalie Harp on Monday

        “Really, all this talk now of election integrity and stopping H.R. 1, stopping the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, isn’t that an admission that something was wrong on Nov. 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7? All the aftermath and all the rigging and all the cheating that went on — that is an acknowledgment that the system that the Democrats and their allies in big tech put into place [that] they’re trying to make permanent,” she said.



      2. Pennsylvania Decertifies County’s Voting System, Cites Violation of Election Code

        Pennsylvania’s top election official has decertified the voting system of rural Fulton County for future elections, saying that an election assessment by a third party had violated the Keystone State’s election code, according to a release on Wednesday.

        Acting Secretary of State Veronica Degraffenreid, an appointee of Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf, informed the Fulton County Board of Elections that she “did not arrive at this decision lightly.”

        Wake Technology Services Inc. (Wake TSI), a software company based in West Chester, Pennsylvania, had carried out an election assessment that involved its workers visiting Fulton County in December 2020 and in early February.

        The company in May released a report that concluded the election was “well-run” and did not indicate any signs of fraud in Fulton County. However, five “issues of note” were uncovered, three of which are related to Dominion Voting Systems, whose electronic voting system was used in the county for the 2020 election. “While these may seem minor, the impact on an election can be huge,” Wake TSI said of the five issues. At the time, Dominion disputed the report’s findings.

        Election Assessment in Pennsylvania County Uncovers Five ‘Issues of Note’
        The Pennsylvania Department of State said in a statement on Wednesday that Wake TSI’s access to the Fulton County’s voting system “undermined the chain of custody requirements and strict access limitations necessary to prevent both intentional and inadvertent tampering with electronic voting systems.”

        It added that the “unauthorized access” prevents the vendor—Dominion—from “affirming that the system continues to meet state and federal certification standards.”

        Fulton county officials had allowed Wake TSI to “access certain key components of its certified system, including the county’s election database, results files, and Windows systems logs,” and to “use a system imaging tool to take complete hard drive images of these computers and other digital equipment,” the department noted.

        “These actions were taken in a manner that was not transparent,” Degraffenreid said in her letter to Fulton County officials on Tuesday. She said the access given to Wake TSI has caused Fulton County’s voting system to be “compromised,” and that neither the county, state officials, nor Dominion could now “verify that the impacted components of Fulton County’s leased voting system are safe to use in future elections.”

        “I have no other choice but to decertify the use of Fulton County’s leased Dominion Democracy Suite 5.5A voting system last used in the November 2020 election,” Degraffenreid wrote.

        The Fulton County Board of Elections and Wake TSI did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

        We Mustn’t Give Up Our Voting Rights to Computer Algorithms
        The Pennsylvania Department of State previously said that a risk-limiting audit of the 2020 election has confirmed the state’s election results.

        The Pennsylvania Capital-Star reported that Fulton County needed to pay $25,000 to lease new equipment for its municipal elections in May, because Dominion refused to let the county use the voting machines that Wake TSI had accessed. According to the outlet, Dominion told the county that it violated its contract in letting a unaccredited and non-certified company inspect the machines.

        Wake TSI’s assessment in Fulton County was “set” by Pennsylvania Sen. Doug Mastriano, a Republican, according to a Dec. 31, 2020 document signed by the company that was obtained and published by the Arizona Mirror and The Washington Post. Wake TSI said in its report that Mastriano and Pennsylvania Sen. Judy Ward, also a Republican, “were aware of our efforts.”

        The document also said that Wake TSI was “contracted to Defending the Republic,” a nonprofit founded by lawyer Sidney Powell, who has alleged that widespread fraud occurred in the 2020 election.

        Mastriano earlier this month issued letters to York, Tioga, and Philadelphia counties requesting that they voluntarily submit information and materials by July 31, to enable what he calls a “forensic investigation” of the 2020 and 2021 elections. He told The Epoch Times that he seeks for an investigation that would be “a big deep dive, like we saw in Arizona, but even deeper.”

        Wake TSI was also involved in the election audit still underway in Arizona’s Maricopa County up until its contract expired in May. The audit in Maricopa County was ordered by the Arizona state Senate’s Republican majority. Dominion machines in Maricopa County will also be replaced.

        Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, a Republican, said the machines were not tampered with during the audit and questioned the Board of Supervisors’ decision to get new machines.

        “If their experts can’t prove the machines have not been tampered with, then how does the [Secretary of State’s office] or County Elections certify the machines before every audit to make sure the machines haven’t been tampered with?” she asked in June.




    1. Arizona Senate Issues Fresh Subpoena for 2020 Election Audit

      BY ZACHARY STIEBER July 27, 2021

      Arizona senators on Monday issued a new subpoena to the state’s largest county for materials related to the 2020 election.

      Arizona Senate President Karen Fann and Arizona Senate Judiciary Chairman Warren Petersen ordered Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors to hand over ballot envelopes or ballot envelope images, voter records, and routers or router images.

      The Republican-controlled board was also commanded to provide all findings concerning any systems breach that took place within six months of the Nov. 3, 2020, election, as well as all usernames and passwords for machines used in the election.

      And the board was also told to appear at the Arizona State Capitol for a hearing on Aug. 2.

      Failure to comply may constitute contempt of the legislature, the board was told.

      A board spokesman told news outlets that the county “has already provided everything competent auditors would need to confirm the accuracy and security of the 2020 election.”

      “The board will review the materials requested with our legal team and respond in the coming days,” he added.

      Contractors hired by the GOP-controlled state Senate have been conducting an audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County since April. The county submitted the nearly 2.1 million ballots cast in the election, as well as 385 tabulators and other items.

      Those were ordered by subpoenas issued late last year.

      But officials also refused to provide some of the subpoenaed items, despite a judge ruling the subpoenas lawful after the county claimed they were overbroad and outside the scope of the Arizona Senate’s authority.

      County officials said in May they could not hand over routers or router images because doing so would pose a security risk.




  4. NYT Lies About Trump Again With Claim He Pushed DOJ To Declare Election ‘Corrupt’

    On Friday, The New York Times claimed it had obtained the handwritten notes from a post-election meeting between then-President Donald Trump and acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue. Those notes, according to the Times, reveal that when Donoghue “warned that the department had no power to change the outcome of the election,” Trump “replied that he did not expect that.” “‘Just say that the election was corrupt + leave he rest to me’ and to congressional allies,” the Times reported Donoghue’s handwritten notes as stating.

    However, a review of the notes from that December 27, 2020 meeting, provided by the Biden administration to the House Committee on Oversight and Reform and posted on the latter’s webpage, expose the Times as once again a purveyor of fake news.

    While the Times claimed the above exchange occurred during a phone call in which Trump “pressed” Rosen and Donoghue “on voter fraud claims that the department had disproved,” the “just say that the election was corrupt” comment came in an entirely different portion of the discussion, the handwritten notes establish.

    That comment followed Donoghue’s assurance that the department would “look at whether there were more ballots in PA than registered voters.” Donoghue’s commitment to investigate this potential fraud came in response to Trump’s earlier assertion that Pennsylvania had only 5 million voters in the state, but there were 5.25 million votes casts.

    Trending: YES or NO? Do You Support Trump in 2024? (Get A Free Gift!)
    “Clearly fraud,” the handwritten notes show Trump saying to the two top DOJ officials, while Donoghue added his own commentary, of “possibly true?” in a parenthetical.

    Then, after telling Trump the DOJ would look at whether there were more ballots cast in Pennsylvania than registered voters, Donoghue noted they “should be able to check on that quickly but understand that the DOJ can’t + won’t snap its fingers + change the outcome of the election, doesn’t work that way.”

    It was in response to that statement that Trump said “[I] don’t expect you to do that, just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R. Congressmen.”

    This context changes everything. Trump didn’t tell his acting attorney general and deputy AG to ignore the department’s conclusion that there was no fraud and to instead announce to Americans that the election was corrupt, leaving it to him and his “congressional allies” to overturn the results of the election. Rather, Trump wanted the DOJ to make that announcement following confirmation that more ballots were cast in Pennsylvania then there were registered voters.

    While there weren’t more ballots cast in Pennsylvania than there were voters, had the DOJ established such fraud had occurred, there would be nothing untoward with officials announcing those findings and that the state’s election was corrupt. That scenario, which the handwritten notes show was being discussed, is entirely different from the situation The New York Times and other corporate media outlets represented. Here’s the Times’ headline.

    The lead paragraphs then continue with the fiction:

    President Donald J. Trump pressed top Justice Department officials late last year to declare that the election was corrupt even though they had found no instances of widespread fraud, so that he and his allies in Congress could use the assertion to try to overturn the results, according to new documents provided to lawmakers and obtained by The New York Times.

    The exchange unfolded during a phone call on Dec. 27 in which Mr. Trump pressed the acting attorney general at the time, Jeffrey A. Rosen, and his deputy, Richard P. Donoghue, on voter fraud claims that the department had disproved. Mr. Donoghue warned that the department had no power to change the outcome of the election. Mr. Trump replied that he did not expect that, according to notes Mr. Donoghue took memorializing the conversation.

    ‘Just say that the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me’ and to congressional allies, Mr. Donoghue wrote in summarizing Mr. Trump’s response.

    Contrary to what the handwritten notes actually show, the New York Times conveyed to its readers that Trump told DOJ officials to ignore their findings of “no instances of widespread fraud,” and instead “just say that the election was corrupt,” then leave overturning the election to the president and his congressional allies.

    The Times’ deceitful portrayal of the content of the handwritten notes also was no accident, as a later passage in the article authored by Katie Benner shows.

    “At another point, Mr. Donoghue said that the department could quickly verify or disprove the assertion that more ballots were cast in Pennsylvania than there are voters,” Benner wrote, adding that the handwritten notes continued: “Should be able to check on that quickly, but understand that the D.O.J. can’t and won’t snap its fingers and change the outcome of the election, doesn’t work that way.”

    But it wasn’t “at another point” that that exchange occurred. It was at that same point Trump made what the Times portrayed as the damning comment: “‘Just say that the election was corrupt + leave he rest to me’ and to congressional allies.”

    The narrative has been set, however, and now a large chunk of the country will wrongly believe that, after losing the election, Trump insisted the Department of Justice lie to the American public that the election was corrupt so he and Republican allies could steal the election.

    Yet an equally large contingency will know the reality of the conversation—and where the real corruptness lies: leftist corporate media.

    1. We reported on February 12th the suspect and questionable results in Colorado in the 2020 election.

      One individual by the name of Matt Crane responded to our post and claimed to be a “strong conservative and very proud republican” in an email to top Republicans. He challenged our report but never reached out to us. He did, however, have the gall to reach out to state Republicans and disparage our report. One of those who received his email provided it to us. We responded to Crane’s email in another article.

      We weren’t really sure why a ‘conservative and very proud republican’ (as Crane referred to himself) would write the email Crane sent out. We mentioned this in our post and provided in our rebuttal three things never addressed by Crane:

      Colorado had a greater than 85% voter turnout and that is way over the national average of 50-55% in Presidential elections.
      Obama and then Hillary held the record for most votes in the state at around 1.3 million but Trump beat Hillary’s record by thousands of votes. However, Biden had half a million more votes than Hillary at 1.8 million which makes no sense when you acknowledge the poor results, poor attendance, and lifeless rallies of the Biden campaign. No way Biden beat Obama, Hillary, or President Trump.
      Thirdly, the state’s population increased by less than 200,000 since 2016. None of this makes sense.
      We then discovered that there is more to this Matt Crane individual than he was telling us. He was the former Clerk and Recorder in Arapahoe County. We located support for this in various articles, even one report that mentions the woman who took his job.

      Arapahoe County Clerk and Recorder Joan Lopez had no elections experience prior to being elected clerk. And it’s showing — frequently — in ways that should make every resident question her ability to fulfill her duties.

      The article goes on to mention how the new Clerk and Recorder blocked individuals on Twitter.

      But she didn’t just block me. At least three fellow constituents were also blocked, including former Deputy Secretary of State Suzanne Staiert and Lisa Flanagan-Crane (Lopez’s predecessor’s wife).

      Then we uncovered that Ms. Lisa Flanagan-Crane, Matt Crane’s wife, claims on her Linked-In profile that she worked for Sequoia and Dominion:





    The Big Money Behind the Big Lie
    Donald Trump’s attacks on democracy are being promoted by rich and powerful conservative groups that are determined to win at all costs.

    By Jane Mayer | August 2, 2021

    It was tempting to dismiss the show unfolding inside the Dream City Church in Phoenix, Arizona, as an unintended comedy. One night in June, a few hundred people gathered for the première of “The Deep Rig,” a film financed by the multimillionaire founder of Overstock.com, Patrick Byrne, who is a vocal supporter of former President Donald Trump. Styled as a documentary, the movie asserts that the 2020 Presidential election was stolen by supporters of Joe Biden, including by Antifa members who chatted about their sinister plot on a conference call. The evening’s program featured live appearances by Byrne and a local QAnon conspiracist, BabyQ, who claimed to be receiving messages from his future self. They were joined by the film’s director, who had previously made an exposé contending that the real perpetrators of 9/11 were space aliens.

    But the event, for all its absurdities, had a dark surprise: “The Deep Rig” repeatedly quotes Doug Logan, the C.E.O. of Cyber Ninjas, a Florida-based company that consults with clients on software security. In a voice-over, Logan warns, “If we don’t fix our election integrity now, we may no longer have a democracy.” He also suggests, without evidence, that members of the “deep state,” such as C.I.A. agents, have intentionally spread disinformation about the election. Although it wasn’t the first time that Logan had promoted what has come to be known as the Big Lie about the 2020 election—he had tweeted unsubstantiated claims that Trump had been victimized by voter fraud—the film offered stark confirmation of Logan’s entanglement in fringe conspiracies. Nevertheless, the president of the Arizona State Senate, Karen Fann, has put Logan’s company in charge of a “forensic audit”—an ongoing review of the state’s 2020 Presidential vote. It’s an unprecedented undertaking, with potentially explosive consequences for American democracy.

    Ralph Neas has been involved in voting-rights battles since the nineteen-eighties, when, as a Republican, he served as the executive director of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights. He has overseen a study of the Arizona audit for the nonpartisan Century Foundation, and he told me that, though the audit is a “farce,” it may nonetheless have “extraordinary consequences.” He said, “The Maricopa County audit exposes exactly what the Big Lie is all about. If they come up with an analysis that discredits the 2020 election results in Arizona, it will be replicated in other states, furthering more chaos. That will enable new legislation. Millions of Americans could be disenfranchised, helping Donald Trump to be elected again in 2024. That’s the bottom line. Maricopa County is the prism through which to view everything. It’s not so much about 2020—it’s about 2022 and 2024. This is a coördinated national effort to distort not just what happened in 2020 but to regain the House of Representatives and the Presidency.”


    This last paragraph reveals what these prpagandists are really worried about : That Trump could regain the House of Representatives and the Presidency in 2022 and 2024.– WW




    1. 43,000 Absentee Ballot Votes Counted in DeKalb County, Georgia 2020 Election Violated Chain of Custody Rule

      August 30, 2021 | Laura Baigert

      43,907 of the 61,731 absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes in the November 2020 presidential election in DeKalb County, Georgia – 72 percent – were counted in official tallies certified by the county and the state, despite violating chain of custody requirements set forward in Georgia Emergency Rule 183-1-14-1.8-.14 promulgated by the Georgia State Election Board at its July 1, 2020, meeting.

      That rule states absentee ballots placed in drop boxes, “shall be immediately transported to the county registrar” by the two person collection team, which is required to sign a ballot transfer form indicating the number of ballots picked up, the time the ballots were picked up, and the location of the drop box, and that, “The county registrar or a designee thereof shall sign the ballot transfer form upon receipt of the ballots from the collection team.”

      The Georgia Star News obtained 725 absentee ballot drop box transfer forms used in the November 2020 election in DeKalb County to document the chain of custody of the 61,731 absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes from the DeKalb County law department in response to an open records request.

      Those 725 absentee ballot drop box transfer forms can be viewed here.

      Of the 61,731 absentee ballots DeKalb County recorded as being deposited into drop boxes during the November 2020 election, 46 percent – or 28,194 of the absentee ballots – were not documented as being received by the elections registrar or the director’s designee until the day after they were collected from the drop box.

      The range in which absentee ballots were collected from drop boxes in DeKalb County and documented as received by the registrar the next day was between 13 and 22 hours, or nearly a full day later.

      For another 26 percent, representing 15,713 absentee ballots collected from drop boxes during the November 2020 election, there was no receipt time recorded at all by the elections office, as is required by the July 2020 emergency election code rule.

      Records for seven full days of the 29-day election period – nearly one quarter – including October 17, 18, 19, 20, 22, 24 and November 1, fall into this category.

      All told, 43,907 absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes in DeKalb County (28,194 absentee ballots whose chain of custody was accounted for on ballot transfer forms that were signed as received by the registrar’s designee one day after election workers removed them from drop boxes plus 15,713 absentee ballots whose chain of custody was accounted for on ballot transfer forms for with there was no registrar’s designee signature for time or date of receipt) were counted in the certified results of the November 3, 2020 election despite being delivered to the registrar’s office in clear violation of the chain of custody documentation of the Georgia State Election Board’s July 2020 rule.

      Another 24 percent – 14,925 absentee ballots collected from drop boxes – were documented as received by the elections official more than an hour after being collected by a two-person collection team, but on the same calendar day.

      Arguably, these additional 14,925 absentee ballots could also be considered in violation of the election code rule that requires absentee ballots placed in drop boxes “shall be immediately transported to the county registrar.”

      Less than 5 percent of the absentee ballots collected from drop boxes during the November 2020 election were recorded as being received by the elections official in an hour or less.

      On November 20, 2020, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, certified Joe Biden as the winner of the state’s 16 electoral college votes over former President Donald Trump by a margin of 11,779 votes out of 5 million cast in the November 3, 2020 election.

      News that in DeKalb County – just one of the state’s 159 counties – the number of absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes in the November 2020 election that were in violation of the state’s emergency rule for chain of custody documentation exceeds by more than three times Biden’s certified margin of statewide victory (43,907 votes compared to 11,779 votes) calls into question the legitimacy of that November 20, 2020 statewide certification by Secretary of State Raffensperger.
