THE ELECTION FIX, Part 57-Breaking News, Pennsylvania:
A Pennsylvania judge today ordered state officials to NOT certify the results of the 2020 election until her court holds a hearing on an election contest on Nov. 27.
Commonwealth Judge Patricia McCullough ordered the state to not take any further steps to complete the certification of the presidential race, which the state announced on Nov. 24. She also blocked the certification of all the other election results.
“To the extent that there remains any further action to perfect the certification of the results of the 2020 General Election for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States of America, respondents are preliminarily enjoined from doing so, pending an evidentiary hearing to be held on Friday,” the judge wrote in her order.
“Respondents are preliminarily enjoined from certifying the remaining results of the election, pending the evidentiary hearing.”
McCullough is presiding over a lawsuit brought by Republican lawmakers and candidates against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf, Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, and the Pennsylvania General Assembly.
The plaintiffs allege that Pennsylvania’s vote-by-mail statute—Act 77—is in violation of the state’s constitution.  “Act 77 is the most expansive and fundamental change to the Pennsylvania voting code, implemented illegally, to date,” the lawsuit, filed in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, states.  “As with prior historical attempts to illegally expand mail-in voting by statute, which have been struck down going as far back as the Military Absentee Ballot Act of 1839, Act 77 is another illegal attempt to override the limitations on absentee voting prescribed in the Pennsylvania Constitution, without first following the necessary procedure to amend the constitution to allow for the expansion.”
The plaintiffs include Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.), Republican congressional candidate Sean Parnell, and Pennsylvania House of Representatives candidate Wanda Logan.
After the Keystone State announced the certification of the presidential election results on Nov. 24, the plaintiffs filed an emergency request just before midnight, arguing that there was no need to act so fast.
In 2016, Pennsylvania certified the presidential election on Dec. 12!!!! So why the rush this time? We know the answer…..
The emergency request underlined that while Pennsylvania completed vote-counting and submitted the signed certification to the U.S. archivist, a number of steps still remain for the formal certification process to be completed.
“While Respondents may have proactively attempted to avoid potential injunctive relief granted by this Court, Respondents duties with regard to finalization of the full election results are far from complete,” the filing states.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 56-Wisconsin Edition:
Group Files Emergency Petition in Wisconsin After Identifying 144,000 Potentially Fraudulent Ballots
BY ZACHARY STIEBER November 24, 2020 Updated: November 25, 2020
A group on Tuesday filed an emergency petition with the Wisconsin Supreme Court, challenging the state’s unofficial election results.
The Thomas More Society’s Amistad Project said it found tens of thousands of ballots that may be fraudulent.
“We have identified over 150,000 potentially fraudulent ballots in Wisconsin, more than enough to call into question the validity of the state’s reported election results,” said Phill Kline, director of the project, in a statement. The count includes 144,000 fraudulent votes and over 12,000 legal votes not counted.
“Moreover, these discrepancies were a direct result of Wisconsin election officials’ willful violation of state law,” he added.
According to unofficial results in the state, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden beat President Donald Trump by about 20,000 votes.
The group said it found that more than 10,000 Republican ballots weren’t counted; more than 10,000 GOP voters who had their ballots requested and filled in by another person; and around 100,000 illegal ballots that were counted anyway.
The 45-page filing asks the Wisconsin Supreme Court to block the certification of election results because of the alleged irregularities.  The lawsuit details a series of alleged illegal actions taken by Wisconsin officials that led to significant numbers of improper votes being counted. One example is not enforcing state laws that require voters to present photo identification when requesting an absentee, or mail-in, ballot. The only exceptions are for voters who are hospitalized or “indefinitely confined because of age, physical illness, or infirmity.”  The indefinite confinement exception was interpreted to apply to people with COVID-19. Statistical analysis shows nearly 100,000 exploited the exception, the project said.
The possibly fraudulent ballots were identified in a data analysis performed by statistician Matthew Braynard and mathematician Steven Miller.
The project announced last week it would be filing federal and state lawsuits challenging the presidential election results in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Nevada, Georgia, and Arizona.
Two Wisconsin counties are currently engaged in a recount initiated at the request of the Trump campaign.
The deadline for the partial recount is Dec. 1.
The Thomas More Society, based in Chicago, describes itself as a national public interest law firm dedicated to providing free legal services for clients all over the United States in defense of life, family, and religious liberty.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 55-Newt Gingrich Edition, plus, watch what happens in Georgia today:
The Thieves Who Stole Our Election Got Sloppy
Newt Gingrich  November 24, 2020 Updated: November 25, 2020
Laziness leads to sloppiness, and sloppiness is how the most brazen heist in American history is being exposed.
Stealing the 2020 election was a mammoth undertaking, involving widespread lawlessness and illicit partnerships between private actors and public officials. They’ve been working to cover their tracks since Election Day, but they didn’t work fast enough. Now, the courts need to stop them from destroying any more evidence so that the people of Pennsylvania—and the rest of the country—can accurately assess the ramifications of their wrongdoing.
Explosive new litigation filed in federal district court on Nov. 21 details and documents a wide variety of illegal practices that were used to inflate the number of votes received by Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, including disparate treatment of voters based on where they live and outright manipulation of Pennsylvania’s voter registration system by partisan activists.
An unprecedented number of mail-in and absentee ballots were cast this year, and practically everyone expected that this would result in a higher-than-usual rate of ballots being rejected for various flaws, such as lacking a secrecy envelope or missing information. In Pennsylvania, tens or hundreds of thousands of ballots were likely to be rejected, based on historical patterns. Instead, a mere 0.03 percent of mail-in ballots were ultimately rejected—somewhere in the neighborhood of about 1,000 votes!!!!! Let that sink in.
Considering that a significant majority of mail-in votes were cast for Biden, the Democrat candidate benefited handsomely from this discrepancy. But how did this anomaly happen?
It turns out that election officials in Democrat strongholds such as Allegheny County (Pittsburgh), Philadelphia County, and Philadelphia’s collar counties—particularly Delaware County—exceeded their authority in order to give voters preferential treatment that wasn’t afforded to voters in Republican-leaning areas of the state.
Specifically, election workers illegally “pre-canvassed” mail-in ballots to determine whether they were missing a secrecy envelope or failed to include necessary information. When ballots were found to be flawed, voters were given an opportunity to correct, or “cure,” their ballots to make sure they counted. In at least some cases, Democrat Party officials were even given lists of voters to contact about curing their ballots.
Election officials in Republican-leaning counties rightly interpreted this as a violation of Pennsylvania’s election code, but Democrat Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar issued guidance authorizing the illegal practices despite lacking the statutory authority to do so.
That’s not the only way Democrats broke the law to give their candidate an unfair advantage, though. Extensive on-the-ground investigations conducted over the past year and a half by attorneys and investigators with the Amistad Project of the nonpartisan Thomas More Society have uncovered another element of the plot that involved even more egregious behavior.
Boockvar also exceeded her authority by granting private, partisan organizations—including the notoriously pro-Democrat group “Rock the Vote”—access to the Commonwealth’s Statewide Uniform Registry of Electors (SURE).
“Rock the Vote’s web tool was connected to our system, making the process of registering voters through their online programs, and those of their partners, seamless for voters across Pennsylvania,” the lawsuit quotes Boockvar as saying.  That’s not supposed to happen. It’s one thing for outside groups to submit registration applications to the state on behalf of would-be voters, but election clerks are the only ones who are supposed to enter this sort of information directly into the records.
It’s easy to see why by inspecting post-election voter lists, which contain names such as “Mary April Smith,” followed by “Mary May Smith,” “Mary June Smith,” “Mary July Smith,” and so forth through the rest of the calendar. When the same voter lists were purchased just a week later, however, those suspicious names had mysteriously disappeared from the rolls.
Under the circumstances, that’s direct evidence of a systematic effort to conceal wrongdoing. All further alterations to the SURE system should be immediately halted to allow a thorough investigation of the records before any more evidence can be destroyed.  The thieves who attempted to hijack the 2020 presidential election were bound to slip up somewhere, and now they’re trying to clean up the glaring evidence of their wrongdoing before the full extent of their crimes can be exposed to the American public. We can’t allow that to happen, or we may never be able to trust the integrity of our elections again.
The Most Brazen Heist in the History of America.
THE FIX-Voting Machine Certifications: Not So Fast, Mister
Long but very important…..
The fallout of the Nov. 3 elections has put the spotlight on the integrity of electronic voting machines used in the United States. In response, authorities have pointed to certifications of the machines as a safeguard against potential systemic problems with the voting machines and their software.
NOT SO FAST, buster…..
A deeper look into the certification process used for the machines reveals that the main certification agency in the United States—the federal Election Assistance Commission (EAC)—maintains an unexpectedly small staff, and one of its chief employees is a former executive of Dominion Voting Systems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Furthermore, it appears the bulk—if not all—of the testing of the election equipment is conducted by only two companies, Pro V&V and SLI Compliance.
Lightly-staffed federal agencies that maintain overly close ties to the companies they are supposed to be monitoring raises additional questions about the thoroughness and integrity of the verification process.
Kathy Boockvar, just two weeks after she was appointed as Pennsylvania’s secretary of the commonwealth, concluded in a Jan. 17, 2019, report (pdf) that Dominion’s “Democracy Suite 5.5A” voting machine “can be safely used by voters at elections,” and certified the Dominion voting systems in Pennsylvania.
Representing Dominion in that process was Jessica Bowers, director of certification for Dominion. In addition to Pennsylvania, Bowers appears to have been responsible for the implementation of Dominion systems into a number of other states, including California, Colorado, Nevada, and Tennessee.
However, after enjoying a 10-year career at Dominion, Bowers would find her way into a new career path at the federal Election Assistance Commission (EAC)!!!!!!!!!!!
The EAC, which describes itself as “an independent bipartisan commission,” is responsible for adopting voluntary voting system guidelines and provides for the accreditation of manufacturers’ voting systems and voting system testing laboratories.
In May 2019, just as the agency was preparing for the 2020 election, it announced the departure of Ryan Macias, who had served as EAC’s acting director of testing and certification.  Macias’s position was an important one—he was responsible for managing EAC’s program that “works with the country’s top voting equipment vendors to certify and decertify voting system hardware and software, and accredits labs for testing equipment,” according to the website CyberScoop. Additionally, Macias had been overseeing an “important update to voting system security guidelines.”
On May 9, 2019, the EAC announced that they had selected Jerome Lovato, who had worked at the EAC since September 2017, to replace Macias. The resignation of Macias and the subsequent appointment of Lovato raised some concerns in Congress, as noted in a letter sent to the EAC by Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Chris Coons (D-Del.).  “Following the resignation of Ryan Macias, public reporting indicates that the EAC now employs only one full-time staff member dedicated to overseeing the certification process. While we understand that the Commission may be working to hire additional staff, we are concerned by the sudden appointment of Jerome Lovato to be the Director of Testing and Certification especially as reports indicating that Mr. Lovato will be working remotely, more than a thousand miles from EAC headquarters. As states continue to update their election equipment and vendors develop new machines, it is essential that Testing and Certification at the EAC be fully operational,” the senators wrote in their letter.  “Given the length of time the certification process can take, we are concerned that the EAC will not be able to certify the machines that states intend to use as part of their modernization efforts ahead of the 2020 elections.”
The concern over the EAC having only “one full-time staff member dedicated to overseeing the certification process” seems understandable, given the potential importance of that duty. The senators asked the EAC what actions they would be taking to shore up personnel ahead of the 2020 election.
That question was answered on May 21, 2019, with the announcement that the EAC was adding two individuals to its voting certification program—Bowers, recently the director of certification for Dominion and a 10-year veteran with the firm!!!!!!!!!, and Paul Aumayr, a former Maryland election official.
An article describing the new hires noted, “It was not immediately clear how the EAC might mitigate any potential conflicts of interest that could arise with hiring Bowers, the former director of certification at Dominion Voting Systems, onto the EAC program.”
The EAC website describes Bowers as managing “voting system testing and certification projects as well as assisting the development of new Voluntary Voting System Guidelines” but fails to disclose any direct mention of her role at Dominion Voting Systems.
“Prior to joining the EAC, she was the Director of Certification for a voting system manufacturer (“a voting system manufacturer”, seriously?) and has worked in the election industry in software development and certification since 2008,” the website states.
Under EAC staff members, Bowers is listed as acting CIO/CISO, while Aumayr is listed as senior election technology specialist. Despite the important role the EAC plays in election integrity, they list only a total of 23 staff members, five executives (of which Lovato is one), and four commissioners. The EAC does have a large board of advisers comprised of 37 individuals.
Only 2 Certified Testers of Election Equipment:
On the EAC website, there are seven voting system test laboratories (VSTL) listed. However, only two of these testing labs, Pro V&V and SLI Compliance, are listed on the page as accredited, as the others are listed as having their accreditation expired.
From early 2017 on, these two companies are the only testing labs to have provided voting system certification, according to a listing of certifications by the EAC.
For one of the two companies used, Pro V&V, the EAC fails to publicly provide the accreditation certificate on its website, instead linking to a page giving a “page could not be found” warning.
The latest certificate listed for Pro V&V on the company’s profile overview on the EAC website has an issue date of Feb. 24, 2015, and is effective through Feb. 24, 2017. It’s unclear if the company’s accreditation is truly expired or if the fault lies with the EAC website.
Despite being responsible for the testing and data used in the certification of entire voting systems, including that of Dominion’s recently certified “Democracy Suite (D-Suite) 5.5-C Voting System (Pro V&V Test Report, June 16),” while simultaneously providing system testing across the nation, Pro V&V has only a single office listed, located in a business suite, that’s supported by a surprisingly crude and sparse website.
The website description of Pro V&V’s facilities omits the “Suite” portion of their address while claiming their “office and laboratory layouts allow ample space for test equipment, software, and hardware used in the testing process.” Their site also claims they have the option of expanding into additional space within the same complex.
Pro V&V, like Dominion Voting and Smartmatic, is a member of CISA’s Sector Coordinating Council, the same council that recently issued the joint statement on the 2020 presidential election. The other primary testing lab, SLI Compliance, also is a member of the same council.
In response to recent allegations of potential problems with the integrity of Dominion’s voting machines used in the Nov. 3 election, Pro V&V has been cited repeatedly as an authority in denying these allegations, including the recount in Georgia.
If this isn’t a classic case of the fox guarding the henhouse, I don’t know what is.
The Georgia Case
In July 2019, despite existing legal challenges, Georgia purchased a $106 million election system from Dominion. In a lawsuit that originated in 2017, critics contended that the new system was subject to many of the same security vulnerabilities as the one it was replacing.
The issue most recently came to a head after credible accusations emerged of problems with voting machines.
Sworn affidavits, filed as part of an emergency motion on Nov. 17, detail allegations by poll observers of potential election fraud. Among other things, the poll workers recounted similar instances of pristine ballots that had similar characteristics: “They were all for Biden and had the same perfect black bubble.”
However, on that same day, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger issued a statement announcing the completion of the state’s voting machine audit, which claimed, “Pro V&V found no evidence of the machines being tampered.”
It’s all a little club and Trump is not a member.
The statement was widely cited by media organizations and others as evidence that claims of problems with voting machines in Georgia were meritless.
A closer examination of the statement, however, indicates that the only thing Pro V&V did was extract “the software or firmware from the components to check that the only software or firmware on the components was certified for use by the Secretary of State’s office.”
The headline of the release appears to have been more important than the scope of the actual functions performed by Pro V&V.
In an Aug. 24 sworn declaration, Harri Hursti, an acknowledged expert on electronic voting security, provided a first-hand description of problems he observed with Georgia’s new voting systems during the June 9 statewide primary election and the runoff elections on Aug. 11.
Hursti told the court of a series of problems, including the fact that “the scanner and tabulation software settings being employed to determine which votes to count on hand-marked paper ballots are likely causing clearly intentioned votes not to be counted.”
Hursti also said that “the voting system is being operated in Fulton County in a manner that escalates the security risk to an extreme level,” and that “voters are not reviewing their BMD [Ballot Marking Devices] printed ballots, which causes BMD-generated results to be un-auditable due to the untrustworthy audit trail.”
Separately, during pre-election testing of Dominion’s voting systems in Georgia in late September, election officials discovered a problem with the display for the U.S. Senate race, finding that under certain circumstances, not all of the candidates’ names fit on a single screen.
Lawyers for Dominion called the problem a “very minor issue” easily fixed with changes to the software. Lawyers for “voting integrity activists,” already involved in lawsuits over Georgia’s new Dominion system, voiced concerns over “the severity of the problem and the security of a last-minute fix.”
Dominion submitted the software fix to Pro V&V, for evaluation. Notably, Pro V&V had just recently provided certification testing for Dominion’s Democracy Suite 5.5-C on April 20 and June 16, leading to the July 9, EAC certification but had not caught the software problem at the time.
On Oct. 1, a Zoom court hearing took place and a transcript of that hearing was created. During the call, a Dr. Coomer from Dominion joined the Zoom meeting. Although no first name was provided, it appears to refer to Dr. Eric Coomer, director of product strategy and security for Dominion Voting Systems.
Coomer told the court it was his belief the software change “was de minimis,” but stated that Dominion didn’t make that determination but instead “submit that change to an accredited laboratory, in this case, Pro V&V. They analyze the change. They look at the code. And they determine whether it is de minimis or not.”
Later during the hearing, Coomer was asked if he knew whom at Pro V&V was performing the software testing. Coomer said he didn’t and noted, “I don’t know the makeup of Pro V&V’s employees.”
This statement from Coomer is simply bull…t. There are only three employees of Pro V&V!
—Jack Cobb, Michael Walker, and Wendy Owens—
It was Owens and Walker who performed the Nov. 26, 2019, testing for the certification of Dominion Voting Systems Democracy Suite 5.5-A and it was these same two individuals who provided the April 13 and June 16 testing of Dominion’s Democracy Suite 5.5-C. Additionally, Pro V&V and Dominion are both members of the same CISA council!!!!
Indeed, on Oct. 2, a letter from Wendy Owens of Pro V&V was sent, confirming “that this version of the ICX software corrected the issue with displaying of two column contests.” The letter concluded with a recommendation from Pro V&V that the software change to Dominion’s systems be “deemed as de minimis.”
On Oct. 3, a declaration from Dr. J. Alex Halderman was filed that refuted the procedures of Pro V&V’s testing, noting that the “report makes clear that Pro V&V performed only cursory testing of this new software. The company did not attempt to independently verify the cause of the ballot display problem, nor did it adequately verify that the changes are an effective solution. Pro V&V also appears to have made no effort to test whether the changes create new problems that impact the reliability, accuracy, or security of the BMD system.”
That is all I can report at this time.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 54-Dominion Edition
Dominion Voting Systems committed to attending an oversight hearing in Pennsylvania but backed out at the last moment, lawmakers in the Keystone State said Friday.
“The members of the state government committee were looking forward to publicly addressing the plethora of accusations of Dominion Voting Systems in a format which would have allowed open and honest dialogue. I was impressed at what appeared to be the willingness of Dominion Voting Systems to address accusations, and it would have put the 1.3 million Pennsylvanians who used their machines at ease, including myself,” state Rep. Seth Grove, a Republican who chairs the Government Oversight Committee, said during a press conference.
“Unfortunately, last evening, Dominion Voting Systems lawyered up and backed out of their commitment.”
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 53-Fight the False Narrative of Big Tech and Corporate Media that there was no Fraud:
Federal Election Commission (FEC) Chairman Trey Trainor said yesterday that affidavits from the Trump campaign show that fraud has occurred during the November general election.  “The massive amounts of affidavits that we see in these cases show that there was in fact fraud that took place,” he said during an interview with “Just the News AM” on Friday.
He said it’s important to have transparency surrounding the election process and that answering questions raised by the Trump campaign over election integrity is “very important for the legitimacy of the presidency.”  In response to a question from reporter Carrie Sheffield, Trainor specifically mentioned a sworn affidavit by Steven Miller, a professor of mathematics at Williams College.
Miller—who specializes in analytic number theory and sabermetrics—flagged nearly 100,000 ballots in Pennsylvania for potential voter fraud after analyzing election data and phone interviews.  Between 89,397 to 98,801 ballots were either requested by someone other than the registered Republican, or requested and returned but not counted, he said.  Trainor said that Miller is clearly qualified as an expert witness in almost any court in the United States and that the court would have to look at the information he has provided.
During the presser, which Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis described as an “opening statement,” the Trump legal team said there are a great number of affidavits in support of their allegations.  “We have, in the Michigan case, 220 affidavits. They are not all public, but eight of them are,” Giuliani said.
Various governmental officials at state and local levels have confirmed reports of voter fraud, including that of Republican poll watchers being blocked from poll sites, votes being cast in the name of dead persons, and election rules being changed by judges or officials bypassing the state legislature institutions, among others.
According to federal law, a person who knowingly makes a false statement in a sworn affidavit could be charged with perjury, to face up to five years in prison and/or fines.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 52, Sydney Powell Edition
Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell had some powerful moments during Thursday’s press conference regarding election integrity and investigations into voter fraud, stating “We are not going to be intimidated, we are not going to back down. We are going to clean this mess up now.”  “This is stunning, heartbreaking, infuriating, and the most unpatriotic acts I can even imagine for people in this country to have participated in any way, shape, or form,” Powell said, becoming visibly emotional over the depravity of the Democrat behavior discussed during the press conference.  “And I want the American public to know right now that we will not be intimidated,” Powell continued. “American patriots are fed up with the corruption from the local level, to the highest level of our government, and we are going to take this country back, we are not going to be intimidated, we are not going to back down. We are going to clean this mess up now.”  Powell added that “President Trump won by a landslide, we are going to prove it, and we are gonna reclaim the United States of America for the people who vote for freedom.”
As to the Dominion voting system, she said, “One of its most characteristic features is its ability to flip votes. It can be set to run an algorithm that probably ran all over the country to take votes from President Trump and flip them to Vice President Biden.”  Which we might never have uncovered if the votes for President Trump had not been so overwhelming in so many of these states that it broke the algorithm that had had been plugged into the system and that is what caused them to shut down in the states they shut down in.” “That’s when they came in the backdoor with all the mail-in ballots, many of which they had actually fabricated.”
Powell promised eyewitness testimony and “mathematical evidence” that Dominion software’s alleged vote-rigging features had been used to devastating effect in 2020.
One of the Smartmatic patent holders, Eric Coomer … is on the web being recorded in a conversation with Antifa members saying that he had the election rigged for Mr. Biden, that there was ‘nothing to worry about here’ and they were going to ‘f*** Trump’. His social media is filled with hatred for the President and the United States of America as a whole. As are the social media accounts of many other Smartmatic people.
Eric Coomer, the Voting Systems Officer of Strategy and Security at Dominion, was recently wiped from the Dominion website.
Powell then explained in detail her allegations that Dominion technology, which was used in 30 states in 2020, had been specifically designed with backdoors and loopholes in mind to allow end-users to rig elections:
“People admittedly can go in and change whatever they want. They can set the ratio of votes from one thing to another. They can say that a Biden vote counts as 1.25 and a Trump vote counts as 0.75. And those may be the numbers that were actually used here.”
“We have evidence of different numbers of votes being injected into the system. The same identical unique 6-digit number multiple times in at least two states that we have analyzed so far, and I’m talking about like 341,542 votes for Biden and 100,012 for Trump. There’s no… logical explanation for the same numbers being injected 20 minutes apart into the machine.”
“The software manual itself – you can download it from the internet – and I would encourage you all to read it; because it specifically advertises some of these things as features of this system.”
After Powell concluded, Trump attorney Jenna Ellis explained to journalists present, “What you’ve heard now is basically an opening statement. This is what you can expect to see when we get to court to actually have a full trial on the merits. To actually show this evidence in court and prove our case.”

THE ELECTION FIX, Part 51, Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan Madness Update:
This is a story of truth, intimidation and then courage: Wayne County Canvassers Board Republicans Rescind Votes Certifying Election
BY IVAN PENTCHOUKOV November 19, 2020-
In the second reversal in as many days, two Republicans on the Wayne County (greater Detroit) county elections board in Michigan rescinded their votes that had certified their county’s results in the 2020 election.  Wayne County Board of Canvassers Chairperson Monica Palmer and board member William Hartmann signed sworn affidavits on Nov. 18 testifying that they voted to certify the election results the day before only because they were promised that a full audit of the election would take place to address their concerns. After learning that no audit would occur, they rescinded their votes.
“Vice-Chairman Jonathan Kinloch gave me assurances that voting for the certification of the November election would result in a full, independent audit of Detroit’s unbalanced precincts,” Palmer wrote, according to an affidavit obtained by Just The News. “I relied on that assurance and voted to certify the election based on that assurance.  “Later that evening, I was sent statements that Secretary Jocelyn Benson made saying that she did not view our audit resolution to be binding,” Palmer continued. “As a result of these facts, I rescind my prior vote to certify Wayne County elections.”  Prior to the vote on Tuesday, Hartmann determined that 71 percent of Wayne County’s Absent Voter County Boards were not balanced without any explanation. (Feaman comment-71%!!!).  After initially voting against certifying the results and deadlocking on the board’s certification, he and Palmer changed their votes after being promised an audit.  “I was enticed to agree to certify based on a promise that the full and independent audit would take place,” Hartmann wrote in an affidavit obtained by Just The News. “Until these questions are addressed, I remain opposed to certification of Wayne County results.”
In his affidavit, Hartmann listed a number of other concerns about the election, including an unresolved question about private money being used to pay poll workers. (Private money used to pay poll workers! hmmm.)  “I am also concerned about the use of private monies directing local officials regarding the management of the elections, how those funds were used, and whether such funds were used to pay election workers. I have not received answers to these questions, and I believe the people of Michigan deserve these answers,” he wrote.
—-Unlawful coercion and intimidation—
Both Hartmann and Palmer say they were berated and accused of racism after they voted against certifying the results. Palmer said that the abuse went so far as to have “threatened me and members of my family.” President Donald Trump tweeted about the matter on Nov. 18.  “Then they were threatened, screamed at, and viciously harassed, and were FORCED to change their vote, but then REFUSED, as American patriots, to sign the documents. 71% MESS. Don’t Harass!” the president wrote.
Trump had weighed in on the situation in Wayne County just after the initial vote, calling the two GOP canvassers courageous.  “Wow! Michigan just refused to certify the election results! Having courage is a beautiful thing. The USA stands proud!” he said.
THE BACKHOE CHRONICLES-When You Bite The Hand that Feeds You…Fox News is Done…
MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” beat rival “Fox & Friends” in the morning cable news ratings for the first time since 2001 last week, AdWeek reported…. That was 19 years ago!
“Morning Joe,” hosted by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, pulled in an average 1.6 million total viewers for the week versus 1.4 million for “Fox & Friends.”
The news comes amid a ratings slide for Fox News Channel in recent weeks after conservative viewers announced on social media platforms their displeasure with Fox coverage. This culminated on election night, when Fox called Arizona for Joe Biden earlier than other news organizations did and proclaimed Biden “president-elect” along with other mainstream outlets while President Donald Trump continues his election challenges and states have yet to officially certify results.
“Republicans grew tired of being lectured and insulted by some of Fox News’ anchors,” Red State said, reporting on the news. “We’ve seen it with Chris Wallace, Neil Cavuto, and Sandra Smith (caught on a hot mic). More recently, we saw Leland Vittert lose his mind on a Trump surrogate. Republicans don’t need a news network that lies to them.”
Red State noted that while Fox has lost viewers, Newsmax TV has seen a “ratings boom.”
This is only the beginning.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 50-Pennsylvania Update
BY PETR SVAB November 17, 2020
More than 400 Republican voters in Pennsylvania say they requested mail-in ballots and returned them to vote, but the state absentee voting data say the ballots weren’t returned, according to a fraud detection team that contacted the voters.  And more than 500 voters said they received mail-in ballots despite not requesting them, according to the team.
The team was put together by Matt Braynard, former data and strategy director for President Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign. The team analyzed the data and set up a call center to verify election inconsistencies in several states, including Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Arizona, where the Trump campaign is contesting the results.
Nearly a third of the voters (556) said they never requested the ballot.  Of the 1,137 who did request a ballot, nearly 40 percent (453) said they mailed the ballots back, but the state data show the ballots weren’t received or counted, Braynard said.  If the results are representative of the whole state, they could throw into question the election result…..read that again, please. “They could throw into question the election result.”
Some 165,000 Pennsylvania Republicans were mailed ballots but weren’t marked as having returned them, Braynard said.  Former Vice President Joe Biden currently leads by fewer than 75,000 votes in the state, according to unofficial results.  Braynard said the team was able to obtain 30 written declarations from the voters, about half of them confirming they received a ballot despite not requesting one. The other half said they returned their ballot, even though the state data say their ballots weren’t returned.
The Trump campaign is suing Pennsylvania in a federal court seeking an injunction that blocks the state from certifying the results of the 2020 general election, alleging that state election officials had “mismanaged the election process” and that Republican poll watchers were prevented from meaningfully observing the vote-counting process.
Braynard said he’s providing data to several different legal teams.  He said results of the same inquiry in Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Arizona will be released on Nov. 18.  He already announced that the team found 17,877 early or absentee voters in Georgia who had filed out-of-state move notices and thus potentially weren’t eligible to vote in the state. Biden currently leads the state by about 14,000 votes.
That is enough to cast the election results in enough doubt for a court of law to order a new election.
The team has also found out-of-state move notices conflicting with votes cast with 7,426 Pennsylvania voters, 6,254 Wisconsin voters, 5,145 Nevada voters, 5,084 Arizona voters, and 1,688 Michigan voters.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part49-What is a “Bellwether” County and why does it matter?
bell•weth•er bĕl′wĕth″ər►
n.One that serves as a leader or as a leading indicator of future trends.
n.A wether or sheep which leads the flock, usually carrying a bell on its neck
Over the past nearly 40 years, presidential elections have observed an intriguing phenomenon: 19 counties in the nation have ALWAYS voted for the winner, be it Republican or Democrat. They’ve been dubbed “bellwether counties” and UNTIL THIS YEAR, no president since at least Ronald Reagan has missed even one.
In 2020, all but one of the bellwethers picked President Donald Trump by a margin of some 16 points on average. Only one, Clallam County in Washington, went for former Vice President Joe Biden and only by about a 3 point margin.
Yet unofficial vote counts now show Biden in the lead and with enough electoral votes to claim the presidency. Trump is challenging the results in several states, alleging fraud, voter suppression, and illegal restrictions on Republican poll watchers. Two states have announced recounts.
Bellwethers aren’t a crystal ball—their streak was expected to end sooner or later. But what would be striking is for it to end so radically.
There is another bellwether list of 58 counties that has correctly picked each president since 2000. Trump swiped 51 of them by an average margin of nearly 15 points. The ones he lost went to Biden by a margin of about 4 points on average.
And then there’s Vigo County in Indiana—the quintessential bellwether that has correctly picked the winner in all but two elections since 1888. In both of the missteps, the residents wrongly picked the losing Democrat: Williams Jennings Bryan over President William Taft in 1908 and Adlai Stevenson over President Dwight Eisenhower in 1952.
In 2020, Vigo went for Trump by nearly 15 points, roughly the same as in 2016.
AND YET, Donald Trump somehow “lost” the election?
As Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet: “There is something rotten in Denmark.”
A guard named Marcellus is talking to his friend Horatio and tells him that “something is rotten in the State of Denmark”. He describes the political turmoil in the kingdom and compares the corrupt ruling class to a fish rotting from head to tail, its stinking stench emanating from the top of the political hierarchy.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 48-How does this happen?
Joe Biden’s victory margin in Georgia tightened slightly Monday after the state discovered that around 2,600 ballots went uncounted in a rural county.
The unofficial breakdown of the votes that weren’t previously uploaded was 1,643 for Trump, 865 for Biden and 16 for Libertarian Jo Jorgensen, according to Gabriel Sterling, who oversaw the implementation of the new statewide election system for the secretary of state’s office.<
The gaffe worsens an already tense situation in the state, which is conducting a hand recount of the Nov. 3 vote, which the Trump campaign alleges was marred by fraud. As of Monday, Georgia had recounted about 4.3 million of the 5 million ballots cast, Sterling said. It was during this audit process that election workers discovered the uncounted ballots in Floyd County, a Republican-leaning community in northwest Georgia.
Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger suggested that Floyd County’s elections chief should resign over the error, Sterling said. “Nothing is making us see any substantive change in the outcome,” Sterling, a Republican, said during a videoconference with journalists Monday afternoon. Yet “there is no good explanation as to why you wouldn’t upload those numbers.”
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 47-Big Corporate media just won’t stop lying:
Monday, 16 November 2020 03:30 PM
Donald Trump’s reelection campaign on Monday attacked The Washington Post’s coverage of a revised lawsuit in Pennsylvania, calling the newspaper’s reporting a “complete mischaracterization.”  According to the New York Post, the campaign accused the Washington Post of “erroneously claiming the campaign had dropped its legal claim of nearly 700,000 ballots processed illegally and in secret.”  But the campaign said it had instead “strategically decided to restructure its lawsuit” after a Friday ruling by the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia.  “We are still arguing that 682,479 ballots were counted illegally, in secret,” campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh told the New York Post. “Unfortunately, fake news activists rushed to print their clickbait headlines, apparently without even reading the lawsuit. That’s lazy journalism at best, but more likely intentionally misleading.”
Washington Post spokeswoman Kristine Coratti told the New York Post that the paper “fully stands behind its story, which is based on a complete and accurate reading of the revised version of the Trump campaign’s lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania election results.”
According to Associated Press reporting on the lawsuit, the campaign dropped the allegation that 682,479 mail-in and absentee ballots were illegally processed without its representatives watching.
The campaign’s revised lawsuit, filed on Sunday, maintains the aim of blocking Pennsylvania from certifying a Biden victory in the state, and it keeps its claim that Democrat voters were treated more favorably than GOP voters.
The remaining claim in the lawsuit centers on disqualifying ballots cast by voters who were given an opportunity to fix mail-in ballots that were going to be disqualified for a technicality.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 46-Battleground States Audit
Election Data Team to Call 1.25 Million Voters Over Anomalies in 6 Contested States
BY CHARLOTTE CUTHBERTSON November 13, 2020 Updated: November 14, 2020
WASHINGTON—The former data and strategy director for President Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign has canceled his vacation plans to comb through election data for voter fraud.  Matt Braynard and his wife had planned to be in the Dominican Republic, but “right now, this is where I’m needed,” he said on YouTube on Nov. 8.
Braynard has assembled a team to look for inconsistencies in the six contested states—Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Nevada.
So far, they’ve identified 1.25 million voter issues that they’re following up on through phone calls and against other databases.  The largest issue they’ve found so far is with voters who had submitted a National Change of Address form to the post office indicating they moved out of state, yet appear to have voted in 2020 in the state they moved from.  “We’re calling them to confirm whether or not they actually cast the ballot, or if that ballot was cast by somebody else in their name,” Braynard told The Epoch Times.
In Georgia, the team found 17,877 early or absentee voters who had filed out-of-state move notices—a higher number than the current vote differential in the state. The current vote tally in Georgia as of 1 p.m. on Nov. 13 shows Democratic nominee Joe Biden ahead of Trump by 14,164 votes.  Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has called for a recount and audit of the presidential race in his state, which began on Nov. 13 and is expected to conclude at midnight on Nov. 18. Georgia is obliged to certify its election results by Nov. 20.
Braynard’s team has also found conflicting out-of-state move notices and votes cast with 7,426 Pennsylvania voters, 6,254 Wisconsin voters, 5,145 Nevada voters, 5,084 Arizona voters, and 1,688 Michigan voters.
So far, they’ve confirmed 631 double-voters in Pennsylvania and 987 in Nevada—and that’s before they’ve checked the Election Day in-person voting information.
“I’m surprised by how many out-of-state national changes of address we found. Because that does indicate very strongly that somebody established residency somewhere else,” Braynard said. “And then they got mailed an absentee ballot, were able to get one, and they cast it. And in many cases, as we found, they not only cast that ballot, they cast a ballot in the new state they live in as well.”
Aside from the change of address issues, Braynard’s team is calling people who received absentee ballots but didn’t return them. They’re asking the person if they requested the ballot, and if so, did they return it, only for it not to be counted.
The third chunk of phone calls relates to precincts that had an extremely high turnout. They’re calling voters who had never voted before, but voted early or absentee in this election, to confirm whether they indeed cast that ballot.
So far, Braynard and his team have found “a few hundred” people who have been willing to sign declarations, which will then become affidavits if lawyers want to include that case. Braynard said he has passed all relevant information to the Trump campaign.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 45-Update from the RNC: This is a multi-front battle.
RNC CHAIRWOMAN MCDANIEL:
  • We have nine lawsuits currently going across the country.
  • We have a recount next week in Georgia.
  • We are going to have a recount in Wisconsin.
  • Beyond that we have 12,000 incident reports with over 400 affidavits. And affidavits are evidence, because these are people testifying under oath that they saw in Detroit, ballots coming in, that they couldn’t get a clear picture as to where they were coming from. That they saw many being fed into machines, that they were forced to backdate or told to backdate ballots as election workers who were working in Detroit.
All of these things are very, very real, and shows why we can’t just move on and close the book on this election, there is a lot more to go still.”

THE ELECTION FIX, Part 44, Green Bay, Wisconsin Edition
GREEN BAY, WIS. — Three voters in northeastern Wisconsin have filed a federal lawsuit seeking to exclude Nov. 3 election ballots in Milwaukee, Dane and Menominee counties, which helped deliver the state to President-elect Joe Biden.
The plaintiffs allege — that absentee voting is rife with widespread fraud and that votes in those counties should not be included in the state’s final election certification, which would give Wisconsin to President Donald Trump.
The lawsuit, filed Thursday, alleges voters in the three counties may have bypassed state law requiring voters to provide a photo ID by declaring themselves “indefinitely confined” due to the coronavirus pandemic. The suit also takes issue with clerks’ ability to take corrective actions to remedy errors related to witness’s addresses on absentee ballots, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
“Election workers, overwhelmed by the sudden flood of mailed ballots, have less ability to carefully review them to screen out fraudulent ones, creating a substantial risk that fraudulent votes will be counted and vote-dilution disenfranchisement will occur,” the lawsuit says.
The lawsuit is one of several being brought on behalf of Trump in an effort to change the outcome of the presidential election.
Wisconsin is one of several states Trump is focused on changing, through this lawsuit and also by a potential recount. Biden won in Wisconsin by a margin of about 20,000 votes.
The state capital and the University of Wisconsin is in Dane County. Menominee County is home to a Native American reservation.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 43: Federal Election Commission Chairman weighs in:
Chair of the Federal Election Commission Trey Trainor believes voter fraud is taking place in states still counting ballots.
During a Friday appearance on Newsmax TV’s “National Report,” Trainor said locations not granting observers access to watch the ballot counting process could be involved in voter fraud.
“I do believe that there is voter fraud taking place in these places,” he said. “Otherwise they would allow the observers to go in.”  Despite winning a court order, which allows the Trump campaign to send observers to watch ballot counting in Pennsylvania from six feet away, Trainor said ballot watchers “have not been allowed into the polling locations in a meaningful way.”
He said when observers have been permitted to watch, the goalpost has been moved away from the six feet required by the court order.  “They have not been allowed that meaningful access,” he said, adding there has not been transparency in the election.  “Our whole political system is based upon transparency to avoid the appearance of corruption,” he said pointing out that Pennsylvania and other states are not conducting counting in a transparent manner.
“State law allows those observers to be in there,” he said, adding if the law isn’t being followed then this election is “illegitimate.”  He said the lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign are “very valid allegations” that need to be “fully vetted” by the court system. He predicts some of the legal challenges will likely end up in the Supreme Court.
THE ELCTION FIX, Part 42- Dominion Voting Software Edition
Many of you have asked for updates about the voting system driven by “Dominion Software.”
Here it is:
As Dominion Voting Systems software comes increasingly under scrutiny in contested presidential elections this cycle, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton tells Newsmax TV his state tested the software and rejected it.
“There is a reason that Texas rejected it,” Paxton told “Stinchfield” host Grant Stinchfield. “We didn’t do it arbitrarily. We knew that these were unreliable systems. We didn’t want to trust them.  “We didn’t want to be in the same situation that some of these other states are in now where we’re questioning the results, so we clearly believe that this was a problem.”  Paxton said Texas tested Dominion software up to three different times, beginning in 2012, each time finding system failures in both hardware and software.  “We discovered that these systems are subject to different types of unauthorized manipulation and potential fraud,” he said.
President Donald Trump on Thursday accused Dominion Voting Systems of having “DELETED 2.7 MILLION TRUMP VOTES NATIONWIDE.”
Trump tweeted a quote he attributed to One America News Network and its chief White House correspondent Chanel Rion as saying: “REPORT: DOMINION DELETED 2.7 MILLION TRUMP VOTES NATIONWIDE. DATA ANALYSIS FINDS 221,000 PENNSYLVANIA VOTES SWITCHED FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP TO BIDEN. 941,000 TRUMP VOTES DELETED. STATES USING DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS SWITCHED 435,000 VOTES FROM TRUMP TO BIDEN.”
Twitter flagged this post with a note that says, “This claim about election fraud is disputed.”
However, many, including some lawmakers, have criticized Dominion software for not preventing glitches and other irregularities from occurring in voting machines. Dominion also bought Sequoia Voting Systems in 2010, which raised questions due to accusations that the latter was involved in rigging the 2004 Venezuelan elections.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 41-“Clear Fraud” in Michigan
‘Clear Fraud’ in Vote Counting in Wayne County (Detroit), Says Attorney Who Filed Lawsuit
The attorney in a Michigan lawsuit alleging voter fraud in the Nov. 3 election says that the suit was launched to ensure Americans have confidence in the electoral process underpinning the nation’s democracy.  David A. Kallman, senior counsel with the Great Lakes Justice Center, is representing two plaintiffs in a suit filed on Nov. 9 against the city of Detroit and Wayne County alleging “numerous issues of fraud and misconduct” in relation to the processing and counting of votes in the county. Wayne County, where Detroit is located, is Michigan’s largest county.  For Kallman, the key point of the lawsuit is about ensuring that all the votes were “fair and legal,” rather than about who ultimately wins the votes.  “What’s important here is that people have to have confidence in our elective system,” Kallman told The Epoch Times. “And if they don’t have confidence that our elections are fair and impartial, and that there’s no fraud going on, then the leaders who get ostensibly elected have no authority.”
“So this goes to the core of our system of government,” he added. “And if people don’t trust that our elections are fair, we’re not going to have a government for very long.”
Kallman said the complaint showed “clear fraud” in the processing of votes in Wayne County.
The 78-page lawsuit (that’s right, 78 pages) alleges numerous instances of voter fraud, supported by six sworn witness statements.
In one of those statements, Jessy Jacob, a city of Detroit employee, said she was instructed to backdate mail ballots and not to look for any deficiencies with the ballots. Jacob also claimed she was told not to ask for identification when voters arrived to vote in person.  “I directly observed, on a daily basis, City of Detroit election workers and employees coaching and trying to coach voters to vote for Joe Biden and the Democrat party,” she says in the affidavit, adding that she witnessed them “encouraging voters to do a straight Democrat ballot.”
In another affidavit, poll challenger Andrew Sitto said that TENS OF THOUSANDS of ballots arrived at about 4:30 a.m. on Nov. 4 at the TCF Center, where absentee ballots were being counted for Wayne County. Sitto said that every ballot in the batch that he observed was cast for Joe Biden!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The lawsuit also alleges that poll workers were instructed to ignore signature mismatches on mail-in ballots, that voters who showed up at the polling site but could not be found on the voter files had ballots assigned to them from a random name on the qualified voter files, and that unsecured ballots arrived at TCF Center in boxes with open tops and no seals, and without envelopes!!!!!!!!
Kallman said the plaintiffs were seeking a preliminary injunction to prevent the certification of Wayne County’s election results, and a court order to preserve all evidence such as computer records, ballots, and logs. No hearing date has yet been set for the injunction application, he said.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 40, Big Legal Victory in Pennsylvania
BY JACK PHILLIPS November 12, 2020 Updated:
A Pennsylvania judge ruled in favor of President Donald Trump’s campaign on Thursday, saying Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar overstepped her authority to change an election deadline two days before Election Day last week.
“The Court concludes that Respondent Kathy Boockvar, in her official capacity as Secretary of the Commonwealth, lacked statutory authority to issue the November 1, 2020, guidance to Respondents County Boards of Elections insofar as that guidance purported to change the deadline … for certain electors to verify proof of identification,” Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt wrote in her order on Thursday afternoon.
Boockvar, a Democrat, submitted guidance saying proof of identification could be provided to vote up until Nov. 12. State law stipulates that voters have until Nov. 9 to deal with problems regarding a lack of proof of identification. Boockvar, the top election official in the state, issued the guidance after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled mail-in ballots could be accepted three days following Nov. 3.
Boockvar issued the new guidance on Nov. 1, two days before Election Day. Trump’s lawyers had argued that the secretary had no power to unilaterally change the date.
The court had previously ordered that ballots from voters who provided identification between Nov. 10 and Nov. 12 have to be segregated until a new ruling is issued about what should be done with them.
“Accordingly, the court hereby orders that Respondents County Boards of Elections are enjoined from counting any ballots that have been segregated pursuant to … this court’s order,” the judge added, meaning that those ballots now shouldn’t be counted. It’s not clear how many ballots are at stake.
Last week on Nov. 5, the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania ruled in favor of the Trump campaign after they argued Boockvar broke the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) when she unilaterally extended the deadline for absentee and mail-in voters to provide any missing proof of identification between Nov. 9 to Nov. 12.
Leavitt’s decision could be appealed to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
Earlier this week, Boockvar said that around 10,000 mail-in ballots were received during the contested three-day grace period between when polls closed on Election Day and 5 p.m. the following Friday. Boockvar also said that Pennsylvania’s election officials received 94,000 provisional ballots, and that around 49,000 mail ballots that arrived before polls closed on Election Day remain to be tallied, according to Pennlive.
Trump’s campaign and Republicans are now awaiting a U.S. Supreme Court decision about whether the Pennsylvania Supreme Court acted legally in granting a three-day extension for accepting mail-in ballots. Several Republican attorneys general from other states have issued amicus briefs and joined the lawsuit against Pennsylvania’s top court.
Meanwhile, there are other outstanding legal challenges in Pennsylvania, including one where they are slated to have a hearing on thousands of ballots that were allegedly improperly counted.

THE ELECTION FIX, Part 38-Overwhelming Evidence
While the anti-Trump corporate media continue to peddle their lie of no evidence of voter fraud, here is some TRUTH-a rare commodity these days:
McEnany Announces 234 Pages of Affidavits Alleging Election Irregularities in Michigan
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany late Tuesday announced 234 pages of what she said were sworn affidavits alleging election irregularities in a county in Michigan.  McEnany appeared alongside Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel on Fox News’ “Hannity,” where she shared several allegations listed in the affidavits—statements made under penalty of perjury—from Wayne County.  “We keep hearing the drumbeat of ‘where is the evidence?’ Right here, Sean, 234 pages of sworn affidavits, these are real people, real allegations, signed with notaries,” McEnany said.  “They’re alleging—this is one county, Wayne County, Michigan—they are saying that there was a batch of ballots where 60 percent had the same signature,” she told host Sean Hannity. “They’re saying that 35 ballots had no voter record but they were counted anyway, that 50 ballots were run multiple times through a tabulation machine.”  McEnany also shared details of another affidavit where a woman alleged that “her son was deceased but nevertheless somehow voted.”
“These are one of many many allegations in one county, and a county no less, where poll watchers were in many cases threatened with racial harassment, they were pushed out of the way, and Democrat challengers were handing out documents, how to distract GOP challengers,” she continued. “These are real, and anyone who cares about transparency and the integrity of the system should want this to pursue to the discovery phase.”
On Monday, President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign filed a suit in Wayne County Circuit Court alleging voter fraud in ballot-counting procedures. The suit alleges county election officials allowed various fraudulent processing of votes, including telling poll workers to backdate ballots and not verify signatures on absentee ballots. Several witnesses have filed sworn affidavits attesting to alleged election fraud. The plaintiffs, two poll challengers, are seeking a temporary restraining order on ballot counting. The case is pending.
Late Tuesday, the Trump campaign announced the filing of a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in the Western District of Michigan that alleges pervasive election irregularities and violations in Wayne County and seeks a review of the Dominion Voting software which caused glitches in several states.
Trump has alleged voter fraud and said any declarations of victory are premature, with his campaign having launched multiple legal challenges in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, and Michigan. The president said on Tuesday that his campaign is making progress and said that he will ultimately be declared the winner of the 2020 election.

Tens of Thousands of Pennsylvania Ballots Returned Earlier Than Sent Date: Researcher
BY PETR SVAB November 10, 2020 :
  • More than 20,000 absentee ballots in Pennsylvania have impossible return dates and another more than 80,000 have return dates that raise questions, according to a researcher’s analysis of the state’s voter database.
  • Over 51,000 ballots were marked as returned just a day after they were sent out—an extraordinary speed, given U.S. Postal Service (USPS) delivery times, while nearly 35,000 were returned on the same day they were mailed out. Another more than 23,000 have a return date earlier than the sent date. More than 9,000 have no sent date.
The state’s voter records are being scrutinized as President Donald Trump is challenging the results of the presidential election in Pennsylvania and other states where his opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, holds a tight lead. The Trump campaign is alleging that invalid ballots have been counted for Democrats and valid ballots for Republicans were thrown away.
The analysis of the publicly available data was conducted by a data researcher who submitted it first to the Chinese-language edition of The Epoch Times. The researcher, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said he consulted about the matter with several USPS field engineers, who said the return dates shown in the database are “impossible.”
The dataset made public by Pennsylvania’s secretary of state was last updated on Nov. 10, and “describes a current state of mail ballot requests for the 2020 General Election.” The data includes the mailed-out and return dates.  In Pennsylvania, voters must request a ballot, which is sent to them via USPS. The voter then fills out the document and sends it back via mail or returns it in person. The process usually takes several days or even weeks, depending on the speed of delivery and response by the voter.
Stay tuned. Things are getting very interesting….drip, drip, drip…There is a flood coming.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 36-Michigan Update
BY PETR SVAB November 10, 2020
More than 10,000 people confirmed or suspected dead have returned their mail-in ballots to vote in Michigan, according to an analysis of the state’s election data.  The analysis was provided by Richard Baris, director of Big Data Poll.
About 9,500 voters confirmed dead through the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) are marked in the state’s mail voting database as having returned ballots. Another nearly 2,000 are 100 years old or more and aren’t listed as known living centenarians.
The data indicates that somebody else was trying to vote on behalf of these people.  “It’s also entirely possible that some of them aren’t even real people,” Baris told The Epoch Times via email. “If someone is 110 or some ridiculous age, we should have their death record but do not.”  Americans older than 110 are exceedingly rare; only a handful of such seniors are known to live in Michigan.  According to the 2010 Census, there were 1,729 centenarians in Michigan.
Even if somebody tried to vote on behalf of a deceased person, the vote would be rejected, according to Tracy Wimmer, spokeswoman for the Michigan secretary of state.
“Ballots of voters who have died are rejected in Michigan, even if the voter cast an absentee ballot and then died before Election Day,” she previously told The Epoch Times via email.
However, Baris isn’t convinced.  “While I’m open to the idea some of these have been rejected, I’m not open to any outright dismissal they all were rejected,” he said in a Nov. 8 tweet.  The data on how many ballots were rejected isn’t available yet, Wimmer said.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 35-Arizona Update:
November 10, 2020:
President Donald Trump is within 1 percent of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden in Arizona, according to the latest unofficial results.
An automatic recount will take place if the final margin is one-tenth of 1 percent, according to state law.
Trump has received 1.63 million votes to Biden’s 1.64 million, as of late Monday. That’s a margin of 0.45 percent.
Biden’s lead has slowly decreased as new bundles of ballots are added to the count.
Fox News called the race in Biden’s favor on election night, followed by The Associated Press, even though hundreds of thousands of votes remained outstanding.
Trump’s campaign predicted the president would ultimately win the state, as he did in 2016.
“We’re right on track. This will be very, very close, but we remain confident @realDonaldTrump will end up on top in Arizona,” Jason Miller, a senior adviser to the Trump campaign, said on social media.
Arizona delivers the winner 11 electoral votes.

THE ELECTION FIX, Part 34-Justice Department Gets Involved
BY MIMI NGUYEN LY AND MELANIE SUN November 9, 2020 Updated: November 10, 2020
Attorney General William Barr has authorized federal prosecutors across the country to “pursue substantial allegations” of voting irregularities, according to media reports citing what appears to be a leaked memo obtained by The Associated Press.
“I authorize you to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections in your jurisdictions in certain cases, as I have already done in specific instances. Such inquiries and reviews may be conducted if there are clear and apparently credible allegations of irregularities that, if true, could potentially impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual State,” read part of the 2-page internal memo.
The memo was sent to U.S. attorneys, assistant attorneys general for the criminal division, civil rights division, national security division, and the director of the FBI.
“Any investigation of claims of irregularities that, if true, would clearly not impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual State should normally be deferred until after the election certification process is completed. While U.S. Attorneys maintain their inherent authority to conduct inquiries and investigations as they deem appropriate, it will likely be prudent to commence any election-related matters as a preliminary inquiry so as to assess whether available evidence warrants further investigative steps.”
The memo said that Department of Justice personnel should “exercise appropriate caution” and “maintain the Department’s absolute commitment to fairness, neutrality and non-partisanship.”  “You are the most senior leaders in the United States Department of Justice and I trust you to exercise great care and judgment in addressing allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities,” Barr wrote. “While serious allegations should be handled with great care, specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims should not be a basis for initiating federal inquiries.”  “I provide this authority and guidance to emphasize the need to timely and appropriately address allegations of voting irregularities so that all of the American people, regardless of their preferred candidate or party, can have full confidence in the results of our elections,” the memo said. “The American people and the leaders they freely elect deserve nothing less.”
On Sept. 2 amid Republican concerns of voter fraud due to the unprecedented distribution of mail-in ballots, Barr told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that he was aware of several “very big” voter fraud investigations in multiple states due to reported issues with mail-in ballots.  “This is playing with fire. We’re a very closely divided country here and people have to have confidence in the results of the election and the legitimacy of the government. And people trying to change the rules to this methodology—which as a matter of logic is very open to fraud and coercion—is reckless and dangerous,” he said at the time.  Now that voting has closed, Barr is encouraging department staff to pursue further investigations that were not possible before the election….
Let the Rule of Law play out.
Do not be swayed by Corporate media and the Democrats rushing to judgment.
There is no “President-Elect” right now.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 32-Official Government Agency Pushes Back Against the Biden Campaign and Corporate Media’s Rush to Judgment:
BY JACK PHILLIPS November 9, 2020 Updated: November 9, 2020
As the campaign for Joe Biden attempts to push the General Services Administration (GSA) to approve a transfer of power, the agency said that it hasn’t made a final assessment of the situation.  “An ascertainment has not yet been made. GSA and its administrator will continue to abide by, and fulfill, all requirements under the law,” a spokesperson with the GSA told The Epoch Times on Nov. 9.
The agency said that GSA administrator Emily Murphy will only initiate the transition when a “clear winner is clear, based on the process laid out in the Constitution.”
“The administrator’s ascertainment is done for the purposes of making services provided by the [Presidential Transition Act] available,” the spokesperson said. “Until an ascertainment is made, the statute allows for the Biden Transition Team to continue to receive the pre-elect services from the government (e.g., limited office space, computers, background investigations for security clearances). GSA has met all statutory requirements under the PTA for this election cycle and will continue to do so.”
The Epoch Times will not declare a winner of the 2020 presidential election until all results are certified and any legal challenges are resolved. Both candidates have claimed victory in certain states, but it appears increasingly likely that this election will be resolved in the courts.

Real Clear Politics, a liberal left-leaning media group has withdrawn the call for Biden in Pennsylvania which takes him back below the magic number of 270 electoral votes.
Don’t left the leftist bullies discourage or intimidate you.
Keep the faith and stay strong.
By the way, there is no such thing as “Office of President-Elect.”
I saw the background behind Joe Biden today when he spoke.
This is Orwellian, as in author George Orwell. Please reads his books. They predict where we are today.
Biden and corporate media are truly trying to deceive the American people.
Stand strong.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 31-Never Thought I Would See This:
BY ANDREW TORBA
Stop Watching Fox News, The Era Of Television News Is Over
Make no mistake about it: Fox News is the network of Paul Ryan. For over a year now Ryan has been gloating that he was going to use his position on Fox’s board to ‘do something’ about Trump. This wasn’t a secret to anyone who has been paying attention to Fox over the course of the past year. Day by day Fox News slowly became CNN lite and the lone network of dissent in a sea of leftist propaganda succumbed to the will of our corporate oligarchy.
Without exception, Tucker Carlson is the only one worth watching on Fox.  Everyone else is either too afraid to speak the truth boldly or has sold out as controlled opposition for the Republican establishment. This was obvious on election night and the days that followed.  Carlson boldly speaks truth to power day in and day out, which is why this summer Tucker Carlson Tonight broke the record for highest-rated program in U.S. cable news history. Carlson will undoubtedly be remembered as the peak of humble and honest television news reporting as we start to witness network television’s inevitable and spectacular decline into irrelevance.
What comes next for media will look a lot like Gab.com or perhaps a hybrid approach like OANN and Newsmax.
It’s crazy to believe that only a handful of Silicon Valley companies will have complete control over the flow of information, communication, and news forever. The future of media, news, and communication is a balkanized and decentralized series of alternative media platforms.
The median age of a primetime Fox News viewer is 68, according to Nielsen. Millennials are tuning out of cable news. Most don’t even have cable (I haven’t for seven years.) “Data from a survey held in March 2020 in the United States revealed that the most popular source for consuming news on a daily basis among U.S. Millennials was social media, with 57 percent of respondents stating that they used social networks as a source of news daily.”
After Fox’s total and complete betrayal of President Trump on election night by wrongfully calling Arizona for Biden before any other network, Fox will soon be remembered as a distant memory of the past in news media history.  In the midst of a heated legal battle over the numerous cases of fraud during the 2020 election, Fox News host Laura Ingraham said that Donald Trump should accept ‘the unfavorable outcome.”…Laura Ingraham, of all people.
Fox News anchor Eric Shawn claimed that President Trump’s allegations of election voter fraud in Pennsylvania were “baseless,” “a lie”, and “not true.”
Then Jeanine Pirro’s Show was cancelled tonight after they found out she was going to report on election fraud.
If you are tuning into Fox News, then you are funding this madness. Sure the pundits and talking heads may spout off some talking points you may agree with from time to time, but when push came to shove and it mattered most: Fox News threw the President, and the country, under the bus and they’d do the same to you too if it meant making a buck and appeasing the establishment oligarchs who run this country.
So ditch Paul Ryan’s news network.
The future is here and it’s on Gab.com.

THE ELECTION FIX, Part 30-Statistical Analysis
BY PETR SVAB November 8, 2020 Updated: November 9, 2020:
With the 2020 elections marred by legal challenges and fraud allegations, some have used statistical analysis to try to determine if foul play was involved. In several states, analyses of election data indeed show statistically odd phenomena in the tallies of votes for the Democratic candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden.
One of the most common arguments is that in some localities, vote counts for Biden violate Benford’s Law.
In simple terms, the law states that in many real-world data sets, such as demographic data, geographical data, or even sports statistics, the first digit of the numbers will more likely be 1 than 2, and 2 more likely than 3, etc. following logarithmic scale. If the first-digit distribution significantly diverges from this rule, it could be evidence of artificial manipulation of the data.
The law has been used to identify fraudulent financial records and other illegal activities. Walter Mebane, a political science professor at the University of Michigan, used the law to back ballot-stuffing allegations in the 2009 Iran election. Some researchers also used the law to check for irregularities in the 2016 election in Wisconsin.
While the result in Georgia and Florida generally adhered to Benford’s Law, there were significant deviations in votes for Biden in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Pennsylvania.
One indicator for Democrat votes in the county “might be a concern,” he said, but added that the indicator “nearly” exceeded the expected value for Republican votes too.
He also used a variant of the Benford’s Law that applies to second digits.
The Biden vote counts were also anomalous and in a way that “is harder to explain,” he said.
One Twitter user went deeper on the Milwaukee analysis and found that in many city wards, votes counted after 3 a.m. on Nov. 4 went to Biden by a much larger margin than those counted before. Sometimes, the difference was as high as 40 percentage points.  Milwaukee’s county clerk didn’t immediately respond to a request by The Epoch Times for comment regarding the discrepancy. Wisconsin is headed for a recount, showing Biden slightly ahead.
Another internet sleuth noticed that in Pennsylvania, nearly 10,000 votes were removed from President Donald Trump’s count at around 9 p.m. on Nov. 4. He said the losses came from three counties: Allegheny (-1,063 votes), Bucks (-2,972 votes), and Chester (-7,135 votes).  Then, around 9 a.m. on Nov. 6, more than 27,000 votes were added to the count, nearly all of them to Biden, he said.  The office of Pennsylvania Secretary of State didn’t immediately respond to questions about the anomalies. While Biden is ahead in the state, Trump has challenged the results in court.
The tally in Michigan, where Biden is ahead by a small margin, also seems to be statistically peculiar.  Around 5 a.m. on Nov. 4, data firm Decision Desk HQ updated the vote count for Michigan, adding 138,339 votes to Biden, but zero to Trump. The statistical impossibility of such a scenario prompted people to speculate that votes were illegally injected into the tally.  Within 40 minutes, Decision Desk HQ posted another update that subtracted 110,796 votes from Biden’s total and added 16,638 to Trump’s. It later said a “clerical error” in Shiawassee County caused the distribution of incorrect data and has since been fixed.  At 5:54 a.m. and 6:05 a.m., the firm posted two more updates for the Michigan race that didn’t appear to show anything unusual.  Then, at 6:18 a.m., the firm posted another update, which added 158,902 votes to the Biden tally and 29,295 votes to Trump’s. Those votes split roughly 85 percent for Biden—an exceptionally high ratio.  One explanation could be that those votes came from a deep-blue county and only included absentee ballots, which were expected to heavily favor Democrats.  However, even absentee ballots in Washtenaw County, which went for Biden by the largest margin, split in his favor by less than 82 percent. In addition, the candidate only picked up 125,927 absentee votes there, so many would have had to have come from another county less favorable to Biden.  A spokeswoman for the Michigan Secretary of State didn’t respond to questions about these votes.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 29- Lindsay Graham Speaks Out:  Lindsey Graham Urges Trump, Republicans Not to Concede to Biden
BY JACK PHILLIPS November 8, 2020 Updated: November 8, 2020
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, called on President Donald Trump not to concede and to “fight hard” in the current legal battles that have ensued as Democrat nominee Joe Biden declared victory.
While a number of news organizations have called the presidential race for Biden, The Epoch Times won’t declare a winner until all results are certified and any legal challenges are resolved. State legislatures and the Electoral College are the bodies that certify presidential elections.
“We will work with Biden if he wins, but Trump has not lost,” Graham told Fox Business on Nov. 8. “Do not concede, Mr. President. Fight hard.”
The Trump campaign hasn’t conceded and has launched legal challenges in several states over allegations of voter fraud and software glitches. Both Trump and his campaign have remained defiant, with the backing of a number of other Republicans.
“To my Republican colleagues out there: we have to fight back, or we will accept our fate,” Graham said.
“I want Pennsylvania to explain to the American people how six people, after they die, can register and vote in Pennsylvania. I want the computer systems in Michigan that flip votes from Republicans to Democrats to be looked at—and the software was used all over the country,” Graham said. “There’s a lot of shenanigans going on here, and if I were President Trump, I would take all this to court, I’d fight back. And from a Republican point of view, mail-in balloting is a nightmare for us.”
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 28-Michigan Update: Republicans to Probe Voting Software After Vote-Count Error in Michigan
BY JACK PHILLIPS November 8, 2020 Updated:
Republicans in Michigan said they are expanding their investigation into Dominion Voting Systems after a counting error in a Michigan county switched Republican votes to Democrat last week.  “Our team is currently reaching out to county clerks across Michigan as well as going through election results in each of the counties which use this software to see how widespread this error may be,” Tony Zammit, communications director for the Michigan Republican Party, told the Washington Examiner on Saturday.
Michigan Republican Party Chairwoman Laura Cox said in a news conference last week that 47 Michigan counties used software from Dominion Voting Systems in the same manner as Antrim County, where it was found that 6,000 votes were erroneously tabulated to Democratic nominee Joe Biden instead of President Donald Trump.
Michigan’s secretary of state office has not responded to a request for comment after Cox’s claims.
“In Antrim County, ballots were counted for Democrats that were meant for Republicans causing a 6,000-vote swing against our candidates,” Cox alleged. “The county clerk came forward and said tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the votes.”  Cox added that the state’s GOP found that 47 out of 83 counties use the same software.  “Antrim County had to hand count all of the ballots,” Cox said, “and these counties that use this software needs to closely examine their results for similar discrepancies.”
Dominion, in a statement to news outlets over the weekend, said that they have received no reports of software errors in Michigan or Georgia.  “There are no credible reports or evidence of any system software errors in Georgia or Michigan, including erroneous reporting of unofficial results from Antrim County, Michigan,” said Dominion Voting Systems.
Democratic Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, in a statement to news outlets, responded to the vote-switch error and disputed Cox’s claims.  “The erroneous reporting of unofficial results from Antrim county was a result of accidental error on the part of the Antrim County Clerk,” she claimed. “The equipment and software did not malfunction and all ballots were properly tabulated. However, the clerk accidentally did not update the software used to collect voting machine data and report unofficial results.”  “Like many counties in Michigan, Antrim County uses the Dominion Voting Systems election management system and voting machines (ballot tabulators.) The county receives programming support from Election Source,” Benson added. “Tabulators are programmed to scan hand marked, paper ballots. When machines are finished scanning the ballots, the paper ballots are retained and a totals tape showing the number of votes for each candidate in each race is printed from the machine.”  The software, she added, did not “cause a misallocation of votes,” blaming it on “human error.”  “As with other unofficial results reporting errors, this was an honest mistake and did not affect any actual vote totals. Election clerks work extremely hard and do their work with integrity. They are human beings, and sometimes make mistakes. However, there are many checks and balances that ensure mistakes can be caught and corrected,” she said.
In the meantime, Michigan state lawmakers on Saturday issued a subpoena to state election officials amid the allegations of voter fraud and software glitches.
Dominion Voting Systems’ software was used in several other states.

THE ELECTION FIX, Part 26-Arizona and Pennsylvania update:
President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) on Saturday filed a lawsuit in Arizona over rejected votes in Maricopa County.
The Trump campaign stated that some in-person votes were disregarded because of alleged improper guidance provided by the poll workers.
“When a machine detects an overvote on a ballot, poll workers should inform in-person voters of the error and give them an opportunity to correct the issue. Instead, poll workers in Maricopa County pressed, and told voters to press, a green button to override the error,” the campaign said in a statement. “As a result, the machines disregarded the voter’s choices in the overvoted races.”
The campaign and RNC allege that the problem was caused by poll workers who were struggling to operate the new voting machines and are asking the county to inspect any overridden in-person ballots manually, the same way that poll workers handle mail-in or drop-off ballots.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden currently holds a narrow lead in Arizona. Maricopa County is the biggest election district of Arizona, contributing over half of the votes for both candidates.
Over the past few days, Trump has been vocal about the need to protect the sanctity of the ballot box while claiming that Democrats are trying to “steal” the election from him, in part through counting late-arriving ballots.
Trump’s legal teams are arguing that mail-in ballots postmarked by Nov. 3 but received after election day should not be counted and that votes that were counted without Republican observers present in the ballot-counting centers should also be considered “illegal votes.”
Earlier in the day, Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani announced that Trump’s re-election campaign will launch a lawsuit in Pennsylvania to challenge mail-in ballots that have been counted without Republican poll watchers onsite.
“We’re going to file a federal lawsuit that will cover here [Philadelphia] and Pittsburgh, and we will have as many witnesses as the court needs. Right now, it could be as many as 90 witnesses,” Giuliani said.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 25-The left’s hypocrisy is clearly on display again:
2016: We don’t have to accept the 2016 election results—Russian interference!
2020: How dare you question the integrity of the election!
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 24, I Can’t Sleep So I Will Keep Posting Edition
I love this country. That is why I do what I do, and what I have been doing for, like my whole life—involved in politics.
So let me unpack what this so-called Biden “victory” means:
Who is Joe Biden?
We have no clue as to what he really stands for and what he thinks.
He smiles, calls for unity and condemns Donald Trump.
The real question is, who are the people behind Joe Biden, a candidate who never really campaigned and never really had ANY rallies where people showed up?
Watching what unfolded today, it’s clear big tech and big media are behind Joe Biden. This is a candidate who will obey and follow.
What’s good for Google, good for corporate media, good for Facebook and Twitter is good for the Biden campaign.
You watched all of the Trump rallies with THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS people showing their support. You saw Biden’s events and they were a joke. We have never seen a more soulless candidate. How does a man with no discernable constituency of any kind rise to the top of American politics?
It’s now more obvious than ever that this is a battle between We the People vs. corporate America, the entrenched D.C. elites and all those who saw a President who could not be controlled by them.
How do I know this? I have run for public office myself…on more than one occasion. They took me out and now I see it being played out on the grandest stage of all.
So if this plays out and Mr. Trump does not prevail, who really won this election?
The Big Tech companies, corporate media, the big banks, the government of China, the permanent bureaucracy, the government elites and the billionaire class.
If a single person represented one vote, Trump wins.
But as a group, the other side wins because they have power that We The People do not have. Until Donald Trump showed up.
They banned Trump from speaking, they banned you and me, and now they claim victory.
Here is what they don’t get.
Mr. Trump has awakened a sleeping giant. You can cheat and deny Mr. Trump his election, but we understand now.
Our movement will continue…we are not going away…we will not recede into the background…you have only emboldened us all the more. We are 70,000,000 strong and this election and all of it’s fraud is a wake-up call.
You ain’t seen nuthin yet….
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 23-BIDEN IS NOT THE PRESIDENT-ELECT!
We do not have a President-elect yet. The election is not over.
We need to abide by the Rule of Law. It protects our liberty.
This is how our system of electing Presidents works:
First, the Constitution provides that the states choose their own electors, as directed by state legislatures. Because legislatures have chosen popular elections for this purpose, the election in a state is not over until all recounts, legal challenges and such are complete.
Each state must make its own determination on this score. For now, at least 7 states are not yet finished. They have ongoing processes, including recounts and other legal challenges. We can speculate as to what will happen, but we don’t know the final outcome in these states.
The Constitution does not give the media any authority over this process!!!
The Associated Press does not get to decide when Pennsylvania or any other state is done!
The Constitution puts each state in charge of itself. And, at the end of the day, state legislatures are responsible for making sure their states are fairly and accurately represented in the Electoral College.
After state officials have certified a slate of electors, these electors will go on to vote at the meetings of the Electoral College in December. Congress will count their votes on January 6. THEN we have a President-elect.
In 2000, we waited for the recount process to complete in Florida. The media did not declare George W. Bush the President during that long month.
No one put Florida in Bush’s column.
No one gave victory speeches.
We let the legal process work.
Ultimately, the recount did not change the result in 2000. Nevertheless, the process was important. First, it helped us ensure that no mistakes were made. Second, it led to better acceptance of the results.
We need this today, too. It will help us get behind whoever is elected and sworn in on January 20. And if Biden won the election, then he’ll still be the winner after all the recounts are over.
One last note for any of you who might be cheering a Biden victory today and who feel a little bit like shrugging off concerns about the Rule of Law:
If the Rule of Law can be shrugged off in ways that make you happy, then it can ALSO be shrugged off in ways that leave you tyrannized.
The Rule of Law matters. Without it, we are no longer a free people.
Thank you Tara Ross for your wisdom on this issue.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 22-President Trump’s Remarks today
“We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed.
The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.
In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process. Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.
“Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated. The American People are entitled to an honest election: that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. This is the only way to ensure the public has full confidence in our election.
It remains shocking that the Biden campaign refuses to agree with this basic principle and wants ballots counted even if they are fraudulent, manufactured, or cast by ineligible or deceased voters. Only a party engaged in wrongdoing would unlawfully keep observers out of the count room – and then fight in court to block their access.
“So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands.”
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 21-Campaign Conference Call Update – November 7
Just finished a conference call with Bill Steppien, Trump Campaign Manager and Justin Clark, Deputy Campaign Manager.
“WE ARE IN THIS FIGHT.” The opening comment by Bill.
“The President realizes this fight is much than him. It’s making sure the Republican Party can compete in future elections. It’s about standing up to Democrat bosses and voter intimidation. It’s about opposing the radical agenda of the Democrats that will destroy this country.”
State by state review:
ARIZONA-
Joe Biden’s lead is down to 20,484 as of 11:00 this morning with 100,000 votes still to be counted.
Shame, shame, shame on Fox News for calling this early.
Georgia-
Illegal ballot harvesting occurred in three heavily Democrat Counties.
Huge number of mail-in ballots are subject to legal challenges.
This state will be subject to a recount. The campaign firmly believes Georgia will come in for Trump.
NEVADA-
90 days ago the Democrat Governor of Nevada declared the same day registration and voting would be allowed (you can’t make this up). This of course has caused severe irregularities in the vote. Attorney General Bill Barr has been put on notice. 100,000 people registered and voted on the same day. Seriously.
PENNSYLVANIA-
There are still 80,000 mail-in ballots and 100,000 provisional ballots to be reviewed.
What went on in Philadelphia is third world stuff. All Republican observers were denied access to observe the voting tabulation and then even the court order to allow it was defied!
WISCONSIN-
Biden’s lead is less than 1% and will be the subject of a recount starting next Wednesday. Serious irregularities are the subject of lawsuits.
There are 3 ways you can help”

2. Call the voter fraud hotline at 800-895-4152
3. Stay at the ready for rallies, demonstrations and protests
AS I WAS TYPING THIS ABC News decided that Biden won the election.
THE NEWS MEDIA DOES NOT DECIDE WHO OUR NEXT PRESIDENT IS!
Ignore the hype.  We are not giving up and we will see the process through.
The next President of the United States has NOT been decided!
Never give up, never give in and no matter what, the Trump revolution will continue.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 20-Saturday morning
There will be a campaign update conference call at 11:00 a.m. EDT this morning.
Meanwhile, here is a statement from our President:
“We believe the American people deserve to have full transparency into all vote counting and election certification, and that this is no longer about any single election. This is about the integrity of our entire election process. From the beginning we have said that all legal ballots must be counted and all illegal ballots should not be counted, yet we have met resistance to this basic principle by Democrats at every turn. We will pursue this process through every aspect of the law to guarantee that the American people have confidence in our government. I will never give up fighting for you and our nation.”
– President Donald J. Trump
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 19-The U.S. Supreme Court Weighs In
The U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito late Friday ordered Pennsylvania election officials to segregate and separately count ballots that arrived after Election Day.
Alito granted a request by the state’s Republican party to separate mail-in ballots received between 8 p.m. Nov. 3 and 5 p.m. Nov. 6 from those that arrived by Election Day, in accordance with state guidance. He ordered that those segregated ballots must be kept “in a secure, safe and sealed container separate from other voted ballots.”
The justice, however, did not order the counties to stop counting but instead ordered those ballots to be counted separately.
The Republicans also raised concerns that Pa. Secretary of State Boockvar had reserved the right to change her guidance or to provide further direction over the ballots. They said that the secretary had done so when it issued new guidance on Nov. 1 directing county boards to count late-arriving ballots.  “In short, an order from the Court is badly needed. But given some county boards’ refusal to confirm that they are segregating ballots and the Secretary’s changing guidance, an order requiring segregation of ballots may not suffice to preserve RPP’s appellate rights,” the Republicans wrote.  “An order at this juncture is necessary to preserve this Court’s jurisdiction to resolve this matter on the merits, as well as its ability to enter an appropriate remedy for this general election,” they added.
The Supreme Court has yet to decide on whether to review the case at hand. Alito said in his order that he had not been informed that the guidance issued on Oct. 28, “which had an important bearing on the question whether to order special treatment of the ballots in question,” had been modified.
He also directed any responses to the application by 2 p.m. Nov. 7.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 18 -Back to Michigan Fraud
The RNC claims that a software error switched 6,000 Republican Votes to Democrat, Used in 47 Michigan Counties.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and other GOP officials said the fight over the presidential election isn’t over, saying that 47 counties in the state may have used software that was detected to have allocated votes to Democrat Joe Biden instead of President Donald Trump in one county.
“In Antrim County, ballots were counted for Democrats that were meant for Republicans causing a 6,000-vote swing against our candidates,” Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox said in a news conference Friday. “The county clerk came forward and said tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the votes.”
Cox added: “Since then, we have now discovered that 47 counties use this same software in the same capacity. Antrim County had to hand count all of the ballots, and these counties that use this software needs to closely examine their results for similar discrepancies.”
A number of news outlets, including The Associated Press and Decision Desk, have declared Michigan for Democratic nominee Joe Biden. Biden is currently leading Trump by about 146,000 votes.
After the discrepancy was found in Antrim County, election officials questioned the results. They said the problem was identified by local election authorities and reviewed Wednesday, according to the Detroit News.
In one instance in Oakland County, a computer error led officials to declare Democrat Melanie Hartman the winner before they reversed it and declared incumbent Adam Kochenderfer, a Republican, the winner of the Oakland County’s 15th county commission District, the Detroit Free Press reported.  “I thought that was that,” Kochenderfer said. “Those were the results, and I said I would not seek a recount.”  Oakland County Director of Elections Joe Rozell told the paper that the error was due to a computer issue at a city clerk’s office. He didn’t elaborate on the issue or if it was the same software used in Antrim County.  “A computer issue in Rochester Hills caused them to send us results for seven precincts as both precinct votes and absentee votes. They should only have been sent to us as absentee votes,” Rozell said.
The RNC has deployed legal teams to Michigan. No lawsuit has yet to be announced over the software.
“We will not give up on this process until every last issue has been resolved,” McDaniel said in the news conference.
There are just too many red flags here and in other states.
THE ELECTION FIX, Part 17-Georgia Edition
This afternoon, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel held a second press conference – this time in Georgia – to shed light on Democrats’ shady vote counting tactics across the state.
Below are some of the highlights that the RNC will continue to investigate:
• As we’ve seen across the country, after the legal votes were in and tallied, unaccounted for ballots have continued to appear in Democrat strong hold counties in Georgia.
o In Gwinnett County, a precinct early voting card from mid-October that should have been counted weeks ago, was recently discovered.
o In DeKalb County, two precinct cards were lost on Election Day.
o In Chatham County, a box of ballots mysteriously appeared.
o In Cobb County, a box of 700 ballots mysteriously appeared.
o In addition, we are still waiting on all of the active military votes to be input and counted.
• Under Stacey Abrams’ guidance, Democrats have been attacking the safeguards of our election processes for the past four years.
o To counter Democrats’ efforts to weaken these safeguards, we have deployed a team of legal experts to Georgia.
o We have also deployed over 100 Trump Victory Field Staffers from all over the country to ensure that every legal Republican ballot that the Secretary of State has deemed “spoiled” or “rejected” has been cured.
o We have identified thousands of legal ballots that require curation. The Trump Victory Field Teams are calling and knocking on these individuals’ doors to make sure their voices are heard.
