Election 2020: The Art of the Steal

Roger Kimball at ET, Before Declaring a Victor, Investigate Allegations of Fraud. That's kind of a Duh! point, but is quite contrary to message the media is sending. Like a coach hoping for his team to get off a play before the opposing coach throws the challenge flag. No one in the media cared when Al Gore fought. Jonathon Turley on Da Hill, Jonathan Turley: America should welcome review for close counts. With their team in the lead, the Democrats and media have no interest in a review. The "no evidence" ploy is being used too. WaPoo, Here are the GOP and Trump campaign’s allegations of election irregularities. So far, none has been proved. Whistleblower from Clark County, Nevada Election Department swears under oath that he was told to ignore signature mismatches and address discrepancies. The corrupt DC media will ignore this.

A Republic, if you can keep it

From Stacy McCain, Articles Mentioning Benford’s Law Are Reportedly Banned on Facebook 
"There are several reasons to suspect shenanigans in this election, but you’re supposedly a fringe kook for noticing anomalies, and social media sites are reportedly censoring mention of Benford’s Law. . . ."Byron York notes that the media people who now tell us it is wrong to challenge election results are the same ones who spent four years telling us that Russian “meddling” rendered the 2016 election invalid.
Based on current population data from the Census Bureau and voting data from previous elections, Just Facts has conducted a study to estimate the number of votes illegally cast by non-citizens in the battleground states of the 2020 election. The results—documented in this spreadsheet—show that such fraudulent activities have netted Joe Biden the following extra votes in these tightly contested states:
  • Arizona: 51,081 ± 17,689
  • Georgia: 54,950 ± 19,025
  • Michigan: 22,585 ± 7,842
  • Nevada: 22,021 ± 7,717
  • North Carolina: 46,218 ± 16,001
  • Pennsylvania: 32,706 ± 11,332
  • Wisconsin: 5,010 ± 1,774
If the lower end of these illegal vote estimates were removed from the vote tallies as of November 8, 2020, 2:00 AM EST, Donald Trump would be leading in states that have a total of 259 electoral votes, or 11 shy of the 270 needed to win the presidency. If the upper end of the illegal vote estimates were removed, Trump would be leading in states that have 285 electoral votes, or 15 more than needed to win the presidency.

Twitchy,  ‘Just absolutely insane’ –> If this thread doesn’t ‘make ya’ go hmmm’ about Biden’s projected win NOTHING will. PM, Sidney Powell claims there are 450,000 ballots that voted only for Biden, left the rest blank. They were churning them out so fast they didn't have time to vote for the other Democrats on the tickets?

"They have done it in every way imaginable, from having dead people vote in massive numbers, to absolutely fraudulently creating ballots that exist only voting for Biden," Powell told Fox's Maria Bartiromo. We've identified identified at least 450,000 ballots in the key states that miraculously only have a mark for Joe Biden and no other candidate."

Powell pointed to Floria, "where things were done right," noting that that's "how the rest of the country should have gone."

Powell maintains that malicious actors "used an algorithm to calculate the votes they would need to flip, and they used computers to flip those votes from...Trump to Biden, and from other candidates to their competitors also."

Put on your tinfoil hat and read The many varieties of election fraud at the Catallaxy Files:

Indeed, the cheating Democrats used secret CIA election rigging software called HAMMER and SCORECARD to skew the vote. Air Force Gen. McInerney discusses this with Steve Bannon in his War Room podcast. Mary Fannin writes about it on TheAmericanReportDotCom website. The Democrats also used it to cheat Bernie out of the nomination. This election is NOT OVER, and Donald Trump is still our President.

Hammer and Scorecard, you ask. This is from Jo Nova

Hammer and Scorecard are the names of the two programs designed by the CIA to interfere in foreign elections and now allegedly being used in the USA itself. The General [Lt. Gen. McInerney] described “Hammer” and “Scorecard,” a pair of programs initially designed for the CIA before being privatized by Deep State players from the Obama administration. We explained how they work in an article last week, but the gist is this: “Hammer” or “THE HAMMER” is a counter-intelligence surveillance program used to spy on activities on protected networks (like voting machines) without detection while “Scorecard” is a vote-manipulation application that changes votes during transfer. It’s the least detectable form of election manipulation because it works during data transfer between voting stations and data storage hubs. Unless both sides are looking for irregularities, it’s impossible to catch. If nefarious forces had people on one side or the other (or both) during data transfer, it cannot be exposed…. CIA program known as “Scorecard” allows its users to change voting outcomes by hacking into the transfer between local reporting stations and state or national data centers. According to McInerney, it’s a small amount, under 3%, to keep it from triggering any alarms. He would know. He served in top military positions under the Secretary of Defense and the Vice President of the United States.

After Crossfire Hurricane, you have to at least accept the possibility.  

From Da Hill, Graham vows Senate Judiciary will investigate 'voting irregularities'. But he better hurry. Althouse, "GOP leaders and confidants of President Trump tell Axios his legal fight to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victory... could last a month or more, possibly pushing the 2020 political wars toward Christmastime."  Axios reports.

I'd like to see some clear-headed analysis of whether Trump's holding out and fighting will help or hurt the Republicans in the Georgia runoffs. Axios — which obviously wants Trump to concede — is pushing the assumption that a concession will boost the Georgia GOP candidates. And I can see that. It's not just how much money is available but how important it is to keep the Senate. But you could say that Trump's diehard fighting is about the importance of keeping the liberals out of power, and if you really believe that, then if Trump fails in his effort, he will leave conservatives pumped up and that will fuel the fight for the Georgia Senate seats.

Jay Valentine at AmThink,  Wait Just a Minute! Some Very Good News May Be Coming

Hey guys, this thing is not only not over; it is scary for Biden. I mean really scary, and most of all, the media know it. Thus, the rush to get everyone in line with the narrative that a 78-year-old, early-dementia former V.P., who could not draw a crowd larger than a dozen, just beat D.J. in a fair election.

Process that for a moment.

Start with Pennsylvania. Biden, as of this writing, is at 290 electoral votes. Pennsylvania is 20.

I read the Justice Alito opinion, and it is pretty clear that he wants the after election night at 8:00 P.M. votes separated for a reason. Biden is going to lose at the Supreme Court, and they know it. Four justices already said the Pennsylvania Supreme Court cannot adjust voting rules. A new arrival, Justice Barrett, says she is there to apply the rules in the Constitution. OK, wanna bet she does?

Remove the after 8:00 P.M. ballots, and Biden loses Pennsylvania. Biden 270.

Let's visit Nevada. I have lots of friends in California who have condos in Nevada to evade state taxes. There are not a couple of people doing this; there are tens of thousands. Everyone knows it, and California seeks them out.

Our old pal Harry Reid knows it as well, and he apparently has them voting in droves in this election. Probably not a big D.J. constituency. Within 72 hours of the election, the Trump team found, validated over 3,500 of them. I do not suspect that Trump's people stopped counting.

Every one of these is a ballot reduction for Biden

Nevada, as of now, is well within reach for DJ and the Trump team — particularly when the California crowd is reduced. And a few of them may testify since a false vote is a very bad thing, with jail time if convicted. Maybe a bigger story here.

Remember where we are, people. Biden is at 270 after a highly probable Supreme Court decision (read Alito and concurring opinions).

Lose Nevada, lose the election.

But wait: it gets better.

Let's visit Wisconsin. Right now, it is 20,000 votes in Uncle Joe's direction. Lots of stories out there, well below the Google fold, that there are way more Wisconsin votes than there are registered voters. OK, maybe the dead can vote up there — probably a Midwest thing.

Well, last night, we found that Wisconsin election clerks were told, and followed the direction, to modify mail-in ballots and fill in the blanks where witnesses left out critical info.

I am sure it was just a good customer service thing and they meant no harm. The problem is every such ballot is now toast.

Scott Adams of Dilbert Fame thinks Trump is going to pull it out, too, and details why he thinks so, ane why the Democrats seemed to have pulled out all the stops on cheating this year in his podcast:

It's long, so here's my summary of his argument, if you don't have the time. Most Democrats think Trump is literally Hitler, and think that any effort to remove Hitler from power is justified. Democrats have been cheating in elections for years, and not facing significant consequences. So why would not some groups of Democrats not cheat? But he thinks they've overreached on the scale, and are likely to be caught out this time. What would (will, hopefully) happen when the evidence clearly show that Democrats in key battleground states cheated on large enough scale to tip the election to Trump? Would they concede graciously? History doesn't suggest that's likely.

CDB at Ace's asks What Can We Do?
It is tempting to lash out and agitate for the most aggressive and combative reactions to what is almost certainly a concerted effort to subvert the rule of law and steal the votes of millions of Americans. It is ironic that the Left in America has accused the Republican party of disenfranchisement for two generations, yet they have demonstrated that exact thing over the last week.

Because that is what has happened. Flooding the count with huge numbers of fraudulent ballots, undercounting Trump strongholds and overcounting Biden-supporting areas are functionally identical to voter intimidation, poll taxes, literacy tests and all of the things that traditionally are considered illegal impediments to free and fair elections.

With the addition of a hostile Fourth Estate that is almost unanimous in its hatred of Trump and support for the Democrat Party and its machinations, and a corporate social media complex that reminds one of Nazi Germany's captive industrial base, it is tempting to throw up one's hands and surrender, or agitate for more direct and violent action.

That is not the topic today; giving up is not an option when American Exceptionalism still lives...however attenuated it may be. And violence is absolutely the last option; I doubt anyone wants to revisit the Civil War.

But there are things we can do. Support President Trump with your voice, and your wallet if necessary. Write letters, call representatives, attend rallies, create more formal groups of like-minded Americans, rather than the traditional loose-knit groups that conservatives tend toward. We are individuals, and organizing is not our first nature...but now it needs to be!

Supporting alternative media sources is vital. OANN, NewsMax, and the various conservative websites and blogs provide a voice for those who have been marginalized by the traditional media.

One of the significant barriers to repairing the obvious structural advantages of the Democrat Party is the natural inclination of Democrats to work in government, and the equally natural disinclination of conservatives to seek employment in the most dysfunctional and least efficient segments of our economy. But that is where the power to manipulate elections resides. Government clerks and functionaries who manage the voting process are overwhelmingly Democrat, and until that changes we are at a significant disadvantage. How to change that is something that we need to examine, but at the very least, a robust presence of Republicans and conservatives at the polls to counter, at least a little bit, the overwhelming numbers of Democrats embedded in the structure of our election process is the minimum.
