I was watching the last season of Ozarks on Netflix. For anyone who doesnt know anyhting about this show its about a family that launders money for the drug cartel in the Ozarks. Without spoiling the show for everyone they have basically eroded their morals so much that theyre willing to do anything to stay alive and in this last season they needed "political help" and a conservative politician asked them to commit voter fraud with voting machines. They all of a sudden got all moral and said that they just couldnt do it. They were mostly cool with murder, theft, corruption, bribing, threatening, you name it, but this liberal middle class family that is heling the drug cartel just couldnt help an "evil republican" from committing voter fraud.

The amount of mind control conditioning and bullshit was just amazing to me. Millions of liberals watch that show and it just reinforced how the left is so morally superior they would never allow a conservative politician to do that little own engage in that themselves. Boy will the masses be surprised one day...
I really think the model for the people in that show are the Clintons. Knowing what we know now about drug running through Mena Arkansas and how they rose to political power from basically nothing, it's not surprising that they would be portrayed in pop culture. The wife kinda looks like HRC and is an utterly annoying and self-serving beyotch when it comes down to it.

What would you like it to have been.

You will hang at gitmo?

New sheriff in town?

Gig's up?

We caught you all.

From the Fifth Grade Civics Textbook:

In the course of the horrendous attack on the United States of America, the victory which ultimately resulted in the exposure of the now-extinct cabal and with all of its conspirators being punished with severity relative to their crimes -- who were famously fully brought to the same justice as were the traitors John McCain and GHW Bush...

These are the actual words written on the notes given the leading traitors, now inscribed on the statue of Donald J. Trump and the famous Q:

"xxxxxxxxxxxxxx..."


Howzat for an intro? Duzzat blow your skirt up? It will guaranteed be on the civics exam.

Georgia Voting Bungled: Hand Recount Drops Democrat Winner to 3rd Place​

A shocking new report lays bare the anxiety many voters continue to feel about ballot integrity following the 2020 elections.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Democratic primary for a county in Georgia has been called into question after a hand count revealed that voting machines were off by thousands of ballots.

Democratic DeKalb County School Board member Marshall Orson, who is running for the county commission, asked the local election board on Thursday not to certify results as it was scheduled to do because of “numerous errors” with the local race, the paper noted.

Instead, he requested an “independent review” as well as a formal recount of the election in a letter to the board.

“There is no rational basis for believing that there are not continuing issues with the results and the results should not be certified with the continuing existence of multiple substantive issues and concerns,” Orson wrote. “Doing so would pose a substantial risk not only to the confidence the public will have in the overall election results from this race but could extend to the entire primary as well as the general election.”​

Just the News adds:

The initial Democratic primary results showed Orson winning for commission District 2 with Lauren Alexander in second place and Michelle Long Spears in third. This would have put Orson against Alexander in a runoff election.
However, Spears noticed that the results showed she received zero votes at most election precincts.
The secretary of state’s office admitted late last month to making several programing mistakes in the ballot equipment that affected the final tally.
There was an attempted re-scan of the ballots in District 2, but ultimately a hand count was conducted, concluding around midnight on Memorial Day.

Wednesday evening, the results of a hand count were published, which showed that Spears, the last-place candidate, is now in first place and is heading for a June 21 runoff election against Alexander. Former first-place finisher Orson, meanwhile, was pushed down to third place.

Spears managed to gain about 2,600 votes from the original matching count, and Alexander managed to collect a few hundred more as well, according to the Journal-Constitution. But Orson lost some 1,600 votes from the original vote tally.

Reports noted that the Dekalb County Election Board is scheduled to certify the results Friday afternoon.

Georgia has been one of a handful of states experiencing significant election controversies beginning with the 2020 elections.

For instance, “a complaint filed in April to the Georgia State Election Board claims that more than 300,000 ballots in the 2020 election were unreliably recorded in state’s largest county of Fulton,” Just the News reported.

In March, a ballot harvesting investigation launched by Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s (R) office also moved forward after the state’s election board approved a sought-after subpoena following allegations stemming from the 2020 election.

The subpoena allowed Raffensperger’s office to begin gathering evidence and testimony into what has been an ongoing probe regarding whether third-party liberal activists illegally collected thousands of absentee ballots in the general election in November as well as a subsequent run-off election that wound up determining Democratic control of the U.S. Senate, Just the News reported, adding:

The vote was a major win for Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who announced the investigation into alleged ballot harvesting in January and was seeking the subpoena authority to assist the probe.
The subpoena power will allow Raffensperger’s team to secure evidence about a whistleblower who alleged to an election integrity group that he participated in a large operation to gather ballots in which activists were paid $10 for each ballot they delivered.
Georgia law expressly prohibits third parties from collecting, gathering, or delivering absentee ballots, except in the case of immediate relatives.

“A vote on whether to issue the subpoena had been delayed several weeks because the Elections Board could not determine who would be its new chairperson. However, the board unanimously chose member Matthew Mashburn last week during a meeting to serve as interim chairman. Afterward, the board voted in favor of the subpoena during a closed-door session,” Just the News reported.

Jeez Louise... They even do it to their freakin' own -- midnight rags-to-riches total vote reversal. Amazing coincidence. Again.

It is like an intra-mural football game, where they run the same play over and over again.

At some point we're going to need to hang a few people in the city square to underscore the message that were pretty fuking fed up with this election cheating bull shit. The only thing they understand is the rope

Then CISA released the 9 vulnerabilities. @iamcognitivecarbon said this:

"these systems were essentially "naked"."

"2.2.1 means nobody with any credibility in cyber security ever did even the most basic assessment before these things were deployed."

"*anybody* granted physical access (unsupervised or not) could have done pretty much anything. Because of 2.2.5, all you needed to do was compromise the EMS server. You could then use that to push corrupted, vulnerable code to all the rest."

My point:

They admitted before the 2020 election that bad actors were trying to exploit vulnerabilities in our election infrastructure. They gas lit us for 1.5 years saying it was the most secure election in history only to now admit there were vulnerabilities on these machines.

There were both vulnerabilities and bad actors trying to exploit them.

2+2=4

But don't worry, Crowdstrike was playing defense for us.

Our "free and fair" elections are the biggest PSYOP of all

Devolution Power Hour - Episode 62​

Devolution Power Hour Published June 4, 2022

If you havent seen The Devolution Power Hour from a couple of nights ago you really need to. John had Patrick and Richard the Saint on doing a major deep dive on the election fraud. I mean, this was the deepest dig I've seen yet as they not only revisited the Devolution Series as it pertains to the fraud, but they uncover further corruption in a bunch of different Govt Agencies and how they're all layered and commingled much like they do with a money laundering operation. RtS really shines here and his 30 plus years of IT experience gives him some insight very few of us have. Anyway, this is a must watch video. You will be captivated for sure...

Yet here we are waiting for something positive to break, not sure what, while being told something will....soon!

Endless articles and videos suggesting 'progress' while we continue to circle the drain under an illegitimate regime. How patient (stupid) can we be and for how much longer?

The Founders would have shot them by now!

Note: Save the negative accusations please, I've heard enough of them. Talk is just talk! Like many people here, my belief is that action is the only way to move forward! Action to me means more than just events happening in a corrupted justice system! Action is more that internet celebrities telling us that they and they alone know what's coming and to be patient. Chasing carrots is getting old!

'We' should be doing more than sitting on our asses waiting for the cavalry to show up.
Before Walt starts dressing me down I'll say that I've already been to 2 neighborhood organizational planning meetings focused on defense of our region. If that's not considered 'doing something' well... I couldn't care less what other people think so their criticism falls on deaf ears.

We need to stop sitting around trusting strangers and start getting organized locally! The 2020 election was stolen and the country is under siege! Now is NOT the time to sit be and wait for a list of little 'wins' that simply haven't yet amounted to a hill of beans when it comes to fighting the enemy in our midst!

Some idiot former 'officials' gets nailed for ballot harvesting....big deal! Those to me are pennies at a time in history when what we really need are Gold Eagles!!!

All this evidence plus TONS more yet here we are, still stuck in the same circle jerk waiting for something to happen that always seems to be just around the next corner.

I'm not impressed nor do I feel even a trace of satisfaction when I read all the memes on this topic.

The question has boiled down to not if a crime was committed but, if anyone in this broken, undermined system will ever have the power (or the courage) to act decisively and effectively the big players to justice.

Hint: there is no justice in the DOJ

OK, start slamming me again for my negativity and refusal to be 'patient'

You’re very negative and impatient. :p Aside from that you’re dead on the nailhead.
But let me present you with an alternative narrative. .
Suppose this whole “Q team” is real and they are “drip drip drip’ing” information to the public to awaken them. Put yourself in their shoes. What would your timeline be? How would you go about it?
My speculation is that things haven’t even come close to bad enough. If I were running the Op and wanted the Democrats to implode; to turn the public against them, I would let them steal the mid-terms as well, and hope it’s blatant.
Let the debt balloon and the inflation top 50%. How about $12/gallon gas? Food shortages, bare shelves, no car parts, no gifts for Christmas, stock crashes. And all under the Democrats watch.
I would want open rebellion against the sitting President and members of Congress. Riots that made BLM look like a church picnic.
You are right Shooty, there is no white knight coming to save the day. There is only us. And we haven’t been driven to the level of desperation to collapse a government.
Now, I would personally never advocate violence or overthrow of a democratically elected government. I believe in peace, civility and the rule of law; a just society.
But maybe there are those that don’t believe that we have a democratically elected government with the people’s best interests at heart. Those are the folks that the Q team will hope to engage in positive change.
All things considered, it’s easy to see The Plan is moving right on schedule.

I wouldn't be advocating that either....if we had one that is!

You make fine points however;
One other thought...if we wait until all the things you described play out and this Q crap turns out to be just a larp, it will be much too late to stand against it by then without guns and blood! There won't be another choice other than the camps!!

We're in deep doodoo!

Has anyone here gotten involved with Red Pill University, here: Red Pill U (G. Edward Griffin Org'n) and the grass roots work they are apparently doing across the country? They've got a big event coming up in Indiana and I have a friend that will be attending. I'm starting to check them out and may actually "get involved" in being the change we want to see.

I guess they were too cheap to pay for really good liars and frauds?

Money just doesn't buy what it used to. Plus, it was kinda last minute and people who work for those two tend to end up with shotgun suicides.

I pretty much agree with both of you. In my area last time gas was at $4.50 it was a ghost town out here in the country.
Now at $5.09 it's still a LOT of traffic. Might be going 5 mph slower.

I think people are waking up but don't UNDERSTAND who is responsible. The whole D & R game is tired. But they are complaining about food & gas prices. Sooe they will be arguing about EVERYTHING as it goes up and up and up.

I thought maybe it would be an uprising to bring either we the people or the Q military into this and force their hand. You don't break up a fight when they are just yelling at eachother. I mean burning down judges, mayors, cops, politicians houses. Assassinations by any means necessary and not necessarily the target but the family to drive the protected ones crazy. Just scorched earth like those that signed the declaration of independence. It's long overdue.

Former US Congressman Pleads Guilty to Election Fraud​

Former US Congressman Pleads Guilty to Election Fraud


As we draw close to important midterm elections, the integrity of the election process is in question. Google “ballot tampering” or “election fraud,” and you will pull up more than 600,000 search results. A former congressional Representative’s Wednesday guilty plea to bribery and falsification of voting records muddy the water even more.

The guilty plea comes from Michael Myers, 79, a former Democratic Representative for Pennsylvania. According to The Epoch Times, Myers “admitted to bribing an election judge in Philadelphia, Domenick Demuro, to illegally add votes for certain candidates, including candidates for federal and state offices.”

The Times reports that Myers and Demuro worked together to support the Democratic Party, receiving payments from the candidates in exchange for manipulating the vote count. Money was sent to Myers who then forwarded a portion of the funds to Demuro.

“The judge of elections for the 39th Ward, 36th Division in South Philadelphia would then add fraudulent votes for Myers’s clients,” reports the Times.

A statement from the Department of Justice adds:

“At Myers’s direction, Demuro would add these fraudulent votes to the totals during Election Day, and then would later falsely certify that the voting machine results were accurate.”​

The fraud reportedly began during the 2014 election cycle and carried on through 2018.

Myers also admitted to conspiring to commit fraud with Marie Beren, another election judge in the 39th Ward (2nd Division). Myers has reportedly admitted to directing Beren to add votes to certain candidates.

Demuro pleaded guilty in 2020 to several charges, including depriving people of civil rights and bribery. Demuro was scheduled to be sentenced on June 30, 2020, but sentencing has repeatedly been postponed. Sentencing is currently scheduled for June 14.

Beren, also a Democrat, pleaded guilty in 2021. The details of her case are sealed, though it is known her sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 16.
Scrambling to appear to want to address the problem, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Jennifer Williams, a Biden appointee, issued this statement:

“Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy. If even one vote has been illegally cast or if the integrity of just one election official is compromised, it diminishes faith in process. Votes are not things to be purchased and democracy is not for sale. If you are a political consultant, election official, or work with the polling places in any way, I urge you to do your job honestly and faithfully. That is what the public deserves and what the federal government will enforce.”​

Jacqueline Maguire, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Philadelphia Division explained:

“One thing you can say about Ozzie Myers: his values have long been out of whack,” and added, “Decades ago, he valued a fake sheikh’s bribes more than the ethical obligations of his elected federal office. This time around, he valued his clients’ money and his own whims more than the integrity of multiple elections and the will of Philadelphia voters. Free and fair elections are critical to the health of our democracy, which is why protecting the legitimacy of the electoral process at every level is such a priority for the FBI.”​

Myers entered Congress in 1976 but was expelled in 1980 after he was found guilty of taking a bribe from undercover FBI agents.

Myers will be sentenced on September 27. He faces up to 60 years in prison and a fine of $1.25 million.

Jeez Louise... They even do it to their freakin' own -- midnight rags-to-riches total vote reversal. Amazing coincidence. Again.

It is like an intra-mural football game, where they run the same play over and over again.
"their own"...they don't do it to their own. They only do it to non-cabal candidates. There are people in both parties who aren't owned (yet) and the cabal can't allow them to win and chip away at the establishment power.

Two Utah Moms File Open Records Requests on Election Records – State Lt. Gov. Tips Off Reporter, Blocks Them from Access, and Feds Are Called In​

Records requests are the last bastion for the public to find the truth and maybe some hidden agendas. Like many in Utah, two mothers had serious concerns about the 2020 election. The two friends decided to team up and bring some transparency to Utah elections and their elected bureaucrats. Jennifer Orten and Sophie Anderson have put up an amazing fight for records, in a very short amount of time. Their very first website “TwoRedPills.org” went live about a month ago. Note: Open records requests in Utah are called GRAMA.
The Utah bureaucracy has become compromised from within, up to the highest levels, with left wing activists. Strategically appointed officials shielded from elections are doing irreparable harm. Many use the “R” but their ideology, policies, projects, and vendor friends are radical factions of the left: CTCL, FairVote, Rock the Vote, Brennan Center, Rockefeller, VOATZ, and worse. They openly treat conservative Utah residents with disdain. The most noticeable is Deidre Henderson (R), the Lt. Governor and Utah’s top election official (801-538-1041).
Utah has pilot tested a dream roster of liberal projects including Ranked Choice Voting, online & mobile phone voting, a Digital Driver License’s to appease the UN’s Global ID agenda, and more. The intention is to mandate these statewide. Utah was an early adopter of ERIC and steam rolled its citizens with lefty projects ever since. Under Henderson, Utah has converted to mail-In ballots, same day registrations, and rampant drop box locations. Their “geo-enabled” elections project (GIS) and invasive ballot tracking (BallotTrax) are also statewide now.

Jen filed GRAMA requests with all 29 counties to secure those record before deleted. She asked for ballot images, cast vote records, tabulator data, drop box videos, and a copy of “Project” backup database. None of these contain private voter information. The “Project” database was a wish item for Jen. These are the election configurations and settings typically provided to auditors. This request sent officials off the deep end. The Lt. Governor was notified within hours of Jen’s filings. Records requests can have some parts denied and others approved. Not in this case.

That afternoon Lt. Gov. Henderson contacted all 29 of the counties demanding they NOT provide ANY election records to Jennifer. Henderson coordinated all the counties to user her “template” response and deny the GRAMA request. Henderson then threatened to sue any County who provided election data, and sue if their denial to Jen wasn’t fast enough. Later in the day she tipped off a reporter to start leftist media attacks on these Moms.
utah-request.jpg

Between 8:03PM and 9:35PM that night Henderson sent 18 messages to liberal activist Bryan Schott at the Salt Lake Tribune. Without any evidence, the Lt. Gov. proclaims Jennifer illegally obtained election data and needs the legal GRAMA copies to publicize the findings. Henderson most certainly voiced these unproven lies to others. If Henderson thought fraud had been discovered, why didn’t she call Jennifer or Sophie? Instead, Henderson advised all counties to keep election records sealed, unexamined, and immediately delete them when the 22 month retention window ends.
utah-texts.jpg

Days earlier Henderson admitted to the Tribune she ratted out Utah citizens to an FBI task force. These were honest volunteers canvassing the voter rolls for election integrity. She wanted it stopped. Coincidentally, 48 hours after Jen’s GRAMA filings two men visited her home. They roamed the property for 20 minutes while Jen was inside with her terrified children. Orten says “One man stayed out front on the grass and kept looking back and forth the whole time. The other was peering in different windows and on the porch. He walked the perimeter of our house very carefully”.
The men told Jen’s neighbor they were “Pest Control” and that Jen “needed it badly”. It was mid December with freezing temps and snow on the ground. They asked for the best time to catch Jennifer and said they might be seen “working” in her yard. One man’s shirt did say “Pest Control” but had no business name. Neither had business cards, clipboards, or door knob hangers. They visited no other homes and their vehicle was not in the vicinity. A detective said this is a known FBI tactic. You are the “pest”, they plant the “bugs”.
feds-utah.jpg

The Tribune’s activist Bryan Schott had pestered Jen all week. But these men were the beginning of the first surveillance experienced by either Mom. There were then two men in a black SUV parked all day at the corner. Another day it was two men in a truck. Jen and Sophie caught two people recording audio of their conversation in a restaurant where they hold private meetings. A cloud account was mysteriously activated on a PC to move data. A mouse was manipulating a PC via remote access. This was all due to some records requests.
Because of the Lt. Gov. threats, 28 of 29 counties denied Jennifer’s GRAMA in its entirety. Some counties even contacted their Sheriff and FBI agents about the GRAMA requests and provided updates. Only Juab County had some courage. They gave Jen copies of the tabulator tapes. A few rural County Clerks felt the Lt. Gov crossed a line and Jen had every right to “ask” for records without intimidation. Jen filed lawsuits with these 3 cooperative counties. The other 26 counties are under GRAMA appeals for their election records. This triggered Henderson to publish a statewide letter.
Her four page statement says: “Access to data to verify elections is not in the public interest. To permit self appointed, unelected, untrained, and uncertified individuals to audit election results would erode the public trust“. Since no candidate complained, Henderson says there’s no reason to provide election information to the public. She conflates transparency with contested elections, two very different matters. The letter targets Jennifer and demeans any Utah citizens considering access to election records.
Only one of the three voter categories can be released to the public for a fee of $1,050. This “Public” category is 58% of the 1.88 million registered voters. Those classified as “Private” voters represent 23% of the entire database. They can only be accessed by politicians or candidates. The “Withheld” voters are 18% of the database. Only County Clerks and the Lt. Gov. have that access. The combined 41% (23+18) represents over 770,000 voters who can’t be verified or scrutinized with traditional public oversight. Utah’s voter rolls are truly a farce.

Sophie’s then focused on Governor GRAMA requests. Spencer Cox is able to operate above the fray. Instead of using IT staff, lawyers from his General Counsel oversee all the requests for his communications. Deputy General Counsel Rhonda Bailey conducts the searches herself. She’s a former real estate lawyer, caseworker, and seems to have no tech background. Either through negligence or deceit, Bailey can’t find anything! She shields Cox’s communications from all public scrutiny (rhonda@utah.gov).
For many of Sophie’s requests, Bailey said the Guv’s email and texts were “publicly accessible”. Other times Bailey lists them as “protected”. This prevent any search from being conducted so the requests are denied. In another example, Sophie asked for messages (text, email, SM) spanning 8 years including words: election(s), absentee ballots, overseas ballots, and so on. DGC Bailey denied the request with the misdirection “we do not maintain records relating to elections”. It’s an insulting response.
“No Records Found” is the Governor’s Office most common response. The Moms sensed a rigged game. So they tested GRAMA using a known message involving the Governor. Jennifer provided precise details, between May 11-14th, the singular term “quarantine”, in any of the Governor’s texts or emails. The request was denied multiple times, not “specific enough”. A tourism newsletter that mentioned “quarantine” is what DGC Bailey provided. This proved Governor GRAMA requests are a farce and likely violate Utah laws.

This saddest example is when Sophie asked for all coms from 2006-17 with former Governors. Her search terms included key developments during those years, and listed 31 words including “Trump”. Again, the GRAMA was denied with “No Records Found”. It’s absurd to believe none of the 31 words were ever mentioned during those 11 years: (Trump, ES&S, ERIC, Diebold, HAVA, Dominion, Governors Association, ranked choice voting, voter rolls, EAC, Democracy Fund, Rock the Vote, Pew, Tides, CTCL, referendum, NCOA, etc.).
The counties play a different shell game with GRAMA. Salt Lake County demanded a massive $95,859 for Jen’s first 4 GRAMA requests. These were election officials communications over just 3-4 months with terms: fraud, voter rolls, drop box, Dominion, adjudicate, and so on. Once the County’s Chief Administrative Officer of Appeals got involved, she said “the fees are excessive”. She lowered them 90.2% to $9,397. County election officials were using outrageous fees to prevent records releases. In two cases the searches were never even performed, fees were pulled out of thin air.
salt-lake-county.jpg

Jennifer submitted a GRAMA request to learn how often her name was mentioned by Salt Lake Clerk Sherrie Swensen (D) and other key staff during a short 2 month period. They found a whopping 698 communications (see image below). The county then demanded an astronomical fee of $9,489 to process the records. After many appeals steps Jen got the fee lowered this to $1,663. SLC knew they the entire time they allowed to provide the results for free, because the search was Jennifer’s own name.
Advertisement - story continues below

Sophie and Jen have done an astonishing job understanding the maze of GRAMA laws and the games the agencies play. Their opponents with teams of lawyers have cited over 17 different statutes and ordinances intending to frustrate these ladies and convince them to give up. Sophie and Jen’s research and analysis of previous GRAMA cases has helped them stay in the game. The stakes are much higher now and why they hired a law firm. They very much appreciate any donations and have interesting merchandise too.
Note: Jennifer recently won an appeal to obtain a few GRAMA requests for free. The public interest outweighed the need to charge her any fees. Salt Lake County sued to prevent the release, said it creates a dangerous precedent. These people at Salt Lake County are flat out scoundrels. The left has taken advantage of the courteous nature of Utah families and their faith for way to long. Look for “Utah Part 2” in the coming days. There’s more to discuss.

Evidence Shows Georgia Voting System May Have Added 15% to Raffensperger Totals​

VoterGA released a report today providing evidence that corrupt Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger received an additional 15% of votes added to his totals in the recent Georgia primary.
The team at VoterGA released a report today that provides evidence that in the recent primaries in Georgia, 15% of corrupt Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s votes were garbage. In their press release, VoterGA shared the following:
VoterGA first presented an Election Night graphic showing Georgia’s voting system allocated 3,317 votes to a Fulton County School Board District 7 candidate who was NOT on the ballot! That same graphic showed candidate Phil Chen with zero votes at 10:12 on Election Night even though he actually received 49.7% of the vote in the race. Chen has challenged the outcome of that contest.
VoterGA also added more detail about the problems in the DeKalb District 2 Commission race where a hand count audit determined that the Dominion Democracy Suite 5.5 voting system shifted thousands of Election Day votes from one candidate to another and selected the wrong winners to face each other in a runoff. They presented excerpts from a letter written to the DeKalb County Board of Elections by VoterGA co-founder Garland Favorito. It explained a variety of reasons that the irregularities found could not be solely attributed to a candidate alignment error after one candidate withdrew from the race. The massive discrepancies also appear to be attributable to a Dominion system counting error.

But perhaps the most stunning news was the evidence collected from an audit monitoring team during the Cobb County Vinings cityhood hand count audit on Monday. The team monitored a majority of those Election Day ballots in the Vinings 04 precinct that were being hand counted. The monitoring team decided to count the votes of incumbent Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger while the cityhood count was in progress.
The team found that Secretary Raffensperger received about 53% of the Republican Election Day votes for Secretary of State in that precinct. That would be in line with the statewide voting percentages that enabled him to avoid a runoff except that the Dominion voting system awarded Raffensperger 68.4% of those same votes. Thus, the Dominion software attributed 15% more votes to Raffensperger’s totals than the actual ballots seem to show when monitors counted Raffensperger’s votes.
“We are concerned that the algorithm that appears to be adding unearned votes to Raffensperger’s totals is running statewide,” VoterGA co-founder Garland Favorito noted. “It is imperative that the SOS race be audited in all counties. That is why we filed Open Records Requests to get an independent copy of the ballots in all counties so we can verify the electronic results.”
Here is VoterGA’s complete report:

The commission voted to pass all three of the above motions.

These commissioners were fearless. The more flack they got the more they knew they were over the target. They wanted every legal vote to count.
“We do all want the same thing. We all want a fair election”
“If we don’t find out what’s going on, we’ll never know.”
Wow, these commissioners were great.
Here is the actual vote by the commissioners:

Here is the full day’s presentation – this discussion occurred at the end of the day.



Major hat tips to Attorney David Clements and his wife Erin Clements and all those in New Mexico who helped make free and fair elections a thing of the future in this county.

Supreme Court Lifts Stay, Allows Counting of ‘Questionable’ Ballots in Pennsylvania Judicial Election​

Supreme Court Lifts Stay, Allows Counting of ‘Questionable’ Ballots in Pennsylvania Judicial Election


Over the opposition of three conservative justices, the Supreme Court allowed officials in Pennsylvania to resume counting disputed undated mail-in ballots in a state-level judicial election that took place last year in Lehigh County.

The high court’s order came near the end of the business day on June 9 and despite a state law that requires that ballots received on time but missing a handwritten date on the envelope be rejected. The Pennsylvania Republican Party takes the position that undated mail-in ballots should not be counted.

The Supreme Court decision, which will affect other elections in the Keystone State, came too late for former hedge fund CEO David McCormick, who on June 3 conceded the U.S. Senate primary contest to celebrity heart surgeon Mehmet Oz who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

McCormick had sued in state court trying to force election officials to count absentee and mail-in ballots that were received on time and stamped by the county boards but on which voters failed to write a date on the exterior mailing envelope. On June 2, Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court ruled (pdf) in McCormick’s favor, ordering that contested ballots be included in the count, The Epoch Times reported.

In the election for the judgeship, Republican David Ritter currently holds a 71-vote lead over Democrat Zachary Cohen. Citing state law, Ritter attempted to prevent the processing of additional ballots, but the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), acting on behalf of a group of voters, asked for the count to continue.


On May 27, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit ordered (pdf) the state to count the undated mail-in ballots.

Judge Theodore McKee, who was appointed by then-President Bill Clinton, wrote for the panel that Congress passed the Materiality Provision of the federal Civil Rights Act “to ensure qualified voters were not disenfranchised by meaningless requirements that prevented eligible voters from casting their ballots but had nothing to do with determining one’s qualifications to vote.”

“Ignoring ballots because the outer envelope was undated, even though the ballot was indisputably received before the deadline for voting serves no purpose other than disenfranchising otherwise qualified voters. This is exactly the type of disenfranchisement that Congress sought to prevent,” McKee wrote.

On May 31, the Supreme Court got involved in the judicial election when Justice Samuel Alito temporarily stayed (pdf) the 3rd Circuit ruling “pending further order of the undersigned or of the Court.”

But late on June 9, the Supreme Court vacated Justice Samuel Alito’s temporary stay order.

The new order (pdf) in the case known as Ritter v. Migliori, court file 21A772, was unsigned and there is no indication of which justices voted to lift the stay, but three justices voted against removing it. Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch joined a dissenting opinion written by Alito.

The decision by the 3rd Circuit is probably wrong, Alito wrote in the dissent, expressing concern about “the effect that the Third Circuit’s interpretation” of federal law “may have in the federal and state elections that will be held in Pennsylvania in November.”

“The Third Circuit’s interpretation broke new ground, and at this juncture, it appears to me that that interpretation is very likely wrong. If left undisturbed, it could well affect the outcome of the fall elections, and it would be far better for us to address that interpretation before, rather than after, it has that effect.”

The circuit court’s interpretation “seems plainly contrary to the statutory language,” Alito wrote.

“When a mail-in ballot is not counted because it was not filled out correctly, the voter is not denied ‘the right to vote.’ Rather, that individual’s vote is not counted because he or she did not follow the rules for casting a ballot.”

This is an excerpt from The Epoch Times.

This is rich. SCOTUS claims constantly that rules are rules but let’s count ballots by people too stupid to follow simple rules.

I'm conflicted by this one. While I agree that the rules should be followed, what if it wasn't clear to the voter that the date had to be filled in? Without seeing the actual mailing I can't have an opinion on that. If the ballot was received by the due date, then the filled in date IS redundant, yet the rules should be followed. No matter what the correct ruling should have been, I think it should have included a directive for things to be clarified for future elections. Something like a prominent statement "if you don't fill in the date your ballot will not be counted", or just remove the space for the date, whatever makes the most sense.
