BIDEN APPOINTS KERRY AS CLIMATE CZAR AT NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL

Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse, you find America-haters, authoritarians, and corrupt individuals being named to high-posts in the Biden/Harris Administration to backstop a fading Joe Biden…

Biden Taps John Kerry to Serve as Climate Czar, Announces Key Cabinet Picks

Joe Biden will nominate former secretary of state John Kerry for climate czar in his presidential cabinet, the Biden-Harris transition team announced on Monday.

Kerry will serve on the White House national security council as the “Special Presidential Envoy for Climate.” The position, which does not require Senate approval, would be the first national security council post to deal with specifically climate change.

[OCS: The man who negotiated an unverifiable Iranian deal that imperiled the United States and its allies with Iranian nuclear-armed ballistic missiles and who authorized funds transfers that allowed Iran to avoid economic collapse and continue to export state-sponsored terrorism should have been rewarded with a long prison sentence.

And let us not forget that the National Security Council was the corrupt hub of lying, spying individuals who assisted in mounting a silent coup d'état against a sitting president and the sabotage of his Administration.]

America will soon have a government that treats the climate crisis as the urgent national security threat it is,” Kerry wrote in a Twitter post. “I’m proud to partner with the President-elect, our allies, and the young leaders of the climate movement to take on this crisis as the President’s Climate Envoy.”

[The current climate crisis is little more than a United Nations’ scheme to allow the United Nations to develop a self-funding mechanism (climate and financial transactions taxation) that does not rely on contributions from member states; breach the sovereignty of nations and allow international authorities to engage in intelligence and law enforcement activities in sovereign jurisdictions, and is the basis for controlling national economies and bringing about United Nations-directed wealth distribution.

We know the climate is always changing, the short time frames in geological time cycles are meaningless, and that contrarian viewpoints from credentialed and experienced scientists have been harshly suppressed. I would be more disposed to fight water, air, and ground pollution rather than something we cannot control.

Let us not forget that the “young leaders” of the environmental movement are mostly socialists and communists who believe in authoritarian government supremacy in all things. That the environmental movement has been infiltrated by enemies who do not wish America well is a proven fact.]

The Biden-Harris team noted that Kerry “was a key architect of the Paris Climate Accord” of 2015. President Trump later pulled out of the treaty, saying its criterion for reducing emissions harmed American manufacturing and energy jobs.

“The Paris Climate Accord is simply the latest example of Washington entering into an agreement that disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries,” Trump said on June 1, 2017. “The agreement doesn’t eliminate coal jobs, it just transfers those jobs out of America and the United States, and ships them to foreign countries.”

[OCS: Another stunningly bad one-sided negotiation that disadvantaged the United States in favor of our enemies in Russia and China. President Trump was correct in his assertions and is now likely to see any progress made by “an exceptional America” destroyed.]

Biden’s nominee for Secretary of State is Antony Blinken, a longtime Biden adviser who served as deputy Secretary of State from 2015 to 2017 during the Obama administration. Prior to that post, Blinken served as national security adviser to Biden during his tenure as Vice President.

[OCS: Let us not forget that Biden has been on the wrong side of almost every historical event he encountered in his nearly 50-years in government. He is a venal, nasty, corrupt individual that thought nothing of selling his office, as did Hillary Clinton, to hostile foreign nations. He has been compromised by China, Russia, and a host of other nations.]

The Biden-Harris team announced Jake Sullivan as nominee for national security adviser. Sullivan served as deputy chief of staff to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and has held various other posts in the Obama-Biden administration.

[OCS: Just when you think it couldn’t get worse, here comes another corrupt, scheming Clintonista to inject further corruption, chaos, and communism into the system.

In addition to Benghazi, the Trump/Russia hoax, and training individuals to resist in the Trump Administration, let us not forget that Sullivan played a key role in negotiating the Iranian nuclear weapons deal and was complicit in sending classified Benghazi information to Hillary Clinton via her unsecured private server. Sullivan is a believer in increased power for labor unions, higher taxes, increased regulation of private business, taxpayer-paid child care, and taxpayer-paid higher education.

Bottom line…

If there is anything that I am thankful for today, it is the appointment of former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen as the Secretary of the Treasury – infinitely better than Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren who couldn't get Senate confirmation on two occasions for the unconstitutional Consumer Financial Protection Agency she created.

What remains to be seen is if the Attorney General, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation has the appetite to fully investigate Obama-era corruption and possibly Joe Biden’s involvement in selling official government access and favors out of his office. Hint: don’t hold your breath. Or, if the mainstream media and social media platforms will swing back toward honest reporting and neutral platforms.

We are so screwed.

ELECTION 2020: WHAT WAS THE DOJ DOING IN 2016 AFTER SIMILAR CLAIMS BY THE LEFT?

WTF: This election battle is not new…

Losses in battleground states, electronic voting machines statistical analysis, allegations of suspected fraud, electoral battles, time constraints, experts – as Yogi Berra said, "Déjà vu all over again.” 

Excerpts from a “lefty” publication…

Experts Urge Clinton Campaign to Challenge Election Results in 3 Swing States -- By Gabriel Sherman

Hillary Clinton is being urged by a group of prominent computer scientists and election lawyers to call for a recount in three swing states won by Donald Trump, New York has learned.

The group, which includes voting-rights attorney John Bonifaz and J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, believes they’ve found persuasive evidence that results in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania may have been manipulated or hacked. The group is so far not speaking on the record about their findings and is focused on lobbying the Clinton team in private.

Last Thursday, the activists held a conference call with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and campaign general counsel Marc Elias to make their case, according to a source briefed on the call. The academics presented findings showing that in Wisconsin, Clinton received 7 percent fewer votes in counties that relied on electronic-voting machines compared with counties that used optical scanners and paper ballots.'

Based on this statistical analysis, Clinton may have been denied as many as 30,000 votes; she lost Wisconsin by 27,000. While it’s important to note the group has not found proof of hacking or manipulation, they are arguing to the campaign that the suspicious pattern merits an independent review — especially in light of the fact that the Obama White House has accused the Russian government of hacking the Democratic National Committee.

According to current tallies, Trump has won 290 Electoral College votes to Clinton’s 232, with Michigan’s 16 votes not apportioned because the race there is still too close to call. It would take overturning the results in both Wisconsin (10 Electoral College votes) and Pennsylvania (20 votes), in addition to winning Michigan’s 16, for Clinton to win the Electoral College. There is also the complicating factor of “faithless electors,” or members of the Electoral College who do not vote according to the popular vote in their states. At least six electoral voters have said they would not vote for Trump, despite the fact that he won their states.

The Clinton camp is running out of time to challenge the election. According to one of the activists, the deadline in Wisconsin to file for a recount is Friday; in Pennsylvania, it’s Monday; and Michigan is next Wednesday.

Whether Clinton will call for a recount remains unclear. The academics so far have only a circumstantial case that would require not just a recount but a forensic audit of voting machines. Also complicating matters, a senior Clinton adviser said, is that the White House, focused on a smooth transfer of power, does not want Clinton to challenge the election result. Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri did not respond to a request for comment. But some Clinton allies are intent on pushing the issue.

This afternoon, Huma Abedin’s sister Heba encouraged her Facebook followers to lobby the Justice Department to audit the 2016 vote. “Call the DOJ…and tell them you want the votes audited,” she wrote. “Even if it’s busy, keep calling.”

Update: Halderman has elaborated on his claims in a Medium post published Wednesday morning.'

Want to Know if the Election was Hacked? Look at the Ballots J. Alex Halderman

How might a foreign government hack America’s voting machines to change the outcome of a presidential election?

Here’s one possible scenario.

First, the attackers would probe election offices well in advance in order to find ways to break into their computers. Closer to the election, when it was clear from polling data which states would have close electoral margins, the attackers might spread malware into voting machines in some of these states, rigging the machines to shift a few percent of the vote to favor their desired candidate. This malware would likely be designed to remain inactive during pre-election tests, do its dirty business during the election, then erase itself when the polls close. A skilled attacker’s work might leave no visible signs — though the country might be surprised when results in several close states were off from pre-election polls.

The only way to know whether a cyberattack changed the result is to closely examine the available physical evidence — paper ballots and voting equipment in critical states like Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, nobody is ever going to examine that evidence unless candidates in those states act now, in the next several days, to petition for recounts.


J. Alex Halderman is Professor of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Michigan and Director of Michigan’s Center for Computer Security & Society. His course on election technology, Securing Digital Democracy, is available on Coursera. He was recently named by Popular Science as one of the “ten brightest minds reshaping science, engineering, and the world.”

<Source>

Bottom line…

It appears that those elected officials in the battleground states need to prove to us that their elections are fair. Not react to challenges by the candidates.

We now know why there was no investigation, one, if anything, it was the democrats stealing votes – just not enough this time; and two, we know what the DOJ and FBI were doing… they were collaborating with the Obama White House to spy on the Trump campaign and investigate a non-existent “pee-pee” hoax.

We are so screwed,

2020 ELECTION: WHAT HAPPENED TO SIDNEY POWELL?

Day + 20 … Just when you thought it couldn’t get any crazier…

vote-day-after-20

Donald Trump Legal Team and Sidney Powell part ways …

I have my suspicions that the Trump legal team may be fighting a delaying or distracting game, and that the goal of the litigation is to immunize a post-President Donald Trump, his children, and his company from further investigation, prosecution, and media scrutiny. Perhaps to inveigle a Nixon-like blanket pardon from the incoming Administration and possibly a pass from the virulent activist progressive socialist democrats in local and state venues.

“One of the biggest tests awaiting President-elect Joe Biden after he takes office is how his Justice Department will handle calls from some Democrats to investigate and prosecute President Trump.

Trump will lose expansive legal protections after Jan. 20, and the new administration will have to decide whether to follow up on congressional and local law enforcement investigations or try to turn the page on the Trump era and avoid the political risks that could come with such an unprecedented court case.

No former president has ever been charged with a crime after leaving office, but Trump is already the subject of a number of probes. In New York, the state attorney general and the Manhattan district attorney are conducting fraud investigations into his past business practices.

And Biden will likely face pressure from some Democratic lawmakers and voters to go after Trump for what they believe has been a presidential term rife with abuses of power.” <Source>

I have also had my suspicions that the Trump legal team, storied as it might be, could successfully execute a full-blown investigation and prepare a compelling court case in a severely-constrained time-frame and get a court to invalidate thousands of votes en masse or halt election certification.

And, I have always wondered why any reputable lawyer would put their reputation and credibility on the line for an almost-fantastically fanciful tale of a widespread foreign conspiracy if there were not threads of truth running through the allegations. But, then again, we saw many noted attorneys buy into the Trump/Russia hoax and give full-throated attention to something that was proved to be little more than a Democrat campaign opposition scheme.

Giuliani releases a statement distancing the Trump campaign from lawyer Sidney Powell.

POWELL-GONE'

Two members of the Trump Presidential Team, lead attorney Rudy Giuliani and Senior Legal Adviser Jenna Ellis released a statement that appeared to be cutting a prominent team member, attorney Sidney Powell, from the Trump team.

“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”

However, let us not forget Donald Trump’s pattern and practice regarding media engagements, and when Trump or his advisors (probably his children) dislike the quality and quantity of an individual’s media appearances.

Perhaps evidence of this dissatisfaction with Sidney Powell could be foreshadowed by the filing of Powell’s “Kraken” affidavit regarding Dominion voting machines by attorney Lin Wood in a Georgia filing; Jordan Sekulow’s  promised of a “shocking” new court filing in Georgia this week, and Sidney Powell‘s announcement in an interview with Larry O’Connor that she was not being funded by the Trump Campaign, but the “People of the United States” – and then proceeded to give out her own 501 c(4) non-profit organization named like a legal defense fund, “DefendingtheRepublic.org?”

Update from Sidney Powell…

STATEMENT FROM SIDNEY POWELL TO "WE THE PEOPLE"

I agree with the campaign's statement that I am not part of the campaign's legal team. I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees.

My intent has always been to expose all the fraud I could find and let the chips fall where they may--whether it be upon Republicans or Democrats.

The evidence I'm compiling is overwhelming that this software tool was used to shift millions of votes from President Trump and other Republican candidates to Biden and other Democrat candidates. 

We are proceeding to prepare our lawsuit and plan to file it this week.  It will be epic.

We will not allow this great Republic to be stolen by communists from without and within or our votes altered or manipulated by foreign actors in Hong Kong, Iran, Venezuela, or Serbia, for example, who have neither regard for human life nor the people who are the engine of this exceptional country.

#WeThePeople elected Donald Trump and other Republican candidates to restore the vision of America as a place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Sidney Powell

After reading Sidney Powell's response, a few thoughts come to mind. One, she is fighting with Guiliani over direction or money. Two, the team decided to bifurcate their attack to remove some of the more sensational claims. Three, Powell believes she has a real case and refuses to compromise her integrity. Or four, she has gone down the rabbit hole. However, it should be noted that there are two timelines -- one time-constrained and requiring the immediate application of time, money, and effort, and one that may take months or years to resolve. The Trump team did the right thing to bifurcate the court challenges.

More questions than answers…

From what I have heard and read, the allegations of election fraud and ballot manipulation go far beyond civil matters -- directly into violations of various federal criminal statutes. So, where are the DOJ and FBI? Where is President Trump, and why isn't he taking action? Or does he have something else -- something more personal -- in mind?

Bottom line...

I find it highly disturbing that a large number of Republicans believe that the Democrats rigged the election and are perfectly willing to simply move forward and accept a President Biden -- thinking the GOP will fix it in the next election. Believing that tomorrow will reveal truths and present the remedies that will redress past issues and help build a better future.

To which I reply, bullshit! Ask yourself where is the Department of Justice and the FBI when it comes to subverting the 2016 election and covering up the criminality of the Obama Administration? Oh right, the corrupt leadership of the DOJ and FBI were complicit in the criminal activities as was the White House. Are you still waiting for the Durham Report?

Perhaps it is time to respond like Democrats, to organize, to subvert, and to resist wherever and whenever we can. And, as one who has seen some of my posts erased from Goggle, isn't it time to hold the social media platforms responsible for election interference?

Will this be a Thanksgiving for the GOP and all Americans or simply another week closer to state certifications for a Biden/Harris Administration?

We are so screwed.

2020 ELECTIONS: WHAT'S MISSING?

Welcome to Day + 19…

vote-day-after-19

It is hard to believe that counts and recounts are continuing almost twenty days after the election. One thing that is especially annoying is the conflation of the words “recount,” “canvass,” and “audit.” In simple terms, a canvass means aggregating or confirming every valid ballot cast is counted—including absentee, early voting, Election Day, provisional, challenged, and ballots from uniformed and overseas citizens. An election audit is a specialized review conducted after-the-fact to determine whether the votes were counted accurately and proper procedures were followed. Ballot batches may be examined using sampling techniques, and problematical procedures may be examined to determine how they affected the election.

What the hell is going on with electronic voting systems?

For at least two decades, electronic election systems have been used in some form by the local and state governments within the United States. The same basic voting functions and security considerations that applied then still apply to modern-day systems. The three major constants are that the vendors of electronic voting systems change their names and ownership periodically, especially after exposure of flaws in their systems, and to avoid massive liabilities; they hide their code behind a veil of secrecy and contractually protect their systems from a forensic examination; and since there are no uniform certification standards, there are few methods to fully examine a voting system and reliably report the results in a meaningful manner.

Can it happen?

Black Box Voting

In 2003, Bev Harris, an American writer, activist, and founder of Black Box Voting, a national, nonpartisan elections watchdog group wrote a book, Black Box Voting based on her investigations into electronic voting systems used in U.S. Elections. During the course of her research, she discovered the source code, documentation, and proprietary communications from an improperly secured voting company website. The company acknowledged the authenticity of the information, and suggested she illegally obtained the data even though it was freely presented for download without warning of its proprietary nature. Bev’s book, Black Box Voting, is freely available at Black Box Voting.

Hacking Democracy is a 2006 Emmy nominated documentary film broadcast on HBO.

Filmed over three years it documents American citizens investigating anomalies and irregularities with 'e-voting' (electronic voting) systems that occurred during the 2000 and 2004 elections in the United States, especially in Volusia County, Florida. The film investigates the flawed integrity of electronic voting machines, particularly those made by Diebold Election Systems, exposing previously unknown backdoors in the Diebold trade secret computer software. The film culminates dramatically in the on-camera hacking of the in-use / working Diebold election system in Leon County, Florida - the same computer voting system which has been used in actual American elections across thirty-three states, and which still counts tens of millions of America's votes today. The feature is freely available at Hacking Democracy.

Did it happen?

Most certainly, there are well-document cases of election “glitches,” “anomalies,” and errors that affected individual races and sometimes entire elections. Did it happen in the 2020 presidential election is yet to be determined? What is certain is that the conditions of the past, especially concerning vendor information, secrecy, security, and certification, exist as if nothing has changed.

Can such a black box system be audited?

Of course, given the right incentives, including the possibility of investigations, prosecutions, fines, and jail time for executives, private companies can be forced to reveal their dark secrets and be held accountable for their work. One need only consider the recent case of the software that was used to control the Boeing 737MAX. The system was dissected, examined, and monitored by federal officials at the FAA before it was recertified for flight use in an aircraft. Unlike the dramatic catastrophic aircraft crashes that killed hundreds of passengers, there does not seem to be a single egregious incident brought to light to spur such an intensive effort regarding election equipment. In fact, given the involvement of political parties and politicians, it is probable that the American public will never learn the details of the 2020 election until long after the results matter. All the while, promises of improvement are being made.

However, the question of the veracity of a voting system’s use in the upcoming January Senate race in Georgia is problematical.

Can we trust our election officials?

The short answer is no, They are partisan politicians, and in some cases, their campaigns for the position were funded by individuals and organizations that seek to bring about a particular election result or inject chaos into the system. For those who might be skeptical, I suggest you research information on the "Secretary of State Project."

“The Secretary of State Project was launched in 2006 to support Democratic candidates for secretary of state. Its formation was motivated by what its founders viewed as partisan activity by Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris (R) in 2000 and Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell (R) in 2004. "We were tired of Republican manipulation of elections," said cofounder Michael Kieschnick. "It seemed like lots of decisions were made by people who were pretty clearly political operatives." <Source> [OCS: A classic case of progressive socialist democrat projection where they accuse the opposition of the activities and tactics that they themselves employ.]

“Formed in the fall of 2006 by Becky Bond, Michael Kieschnick and James Rucker, the Secretary of State Project was an American non-profit, progressive or liberal 527 political action committee focused on electing reform-minded progressive Secretaries of State in battleground states, who typically oversee the election process. They hoped to prevent a repeat of Florida 2000, where the projects backers claimed that a Republican Secretary of State, Katherine Harris, took a partisan role in helping to determine the 2000 presidential election results. The Project was funded by George Soros and members of the Democracy Alliance.” <Source> [OCS: There are few people in American politics that have such a negative effect on our Constitution, economy, and culture than George Soros.]

Can we trust our courts?

When one considers some of the rulings of activist judges who are not original textualists or who appear to be highly partisan, there is little or no doubt in my mind that courts cannot always be trusted to render a result that is fair and non-partisan. Even in the case of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, we have seen at least two cases where he tortured the U.S. Constitution and refused to follow the law. In general, courts are reluctant to interfere in elections, especially to order large numbers of votes to be invalidated, resulting in the disenfranchisement of numerous citizens. To invalidate a national election is almost unthinkable. However, state legislatures, who can refuse to certify elections, or Congress who can actually select a candidate under certain circumstances, show the foresight of our Founding Fathers in creating the checks and balances within our Constitutional Republic.

What’s missing from the Trump team?

TRUMPTEAM

It appears that the Trump team challenging the election results is a media-savvy high-profile team. Unfortunately, I am not seeing the normal and customary attorneys that specialize in election law and intellectual property rights.

During an interview on Friday with Howie Carr on Newsmax, attorney Sidney Powell dropped several more bombs relating to the ongoing investigation into irregularities that took place in the 2020 election.

Powell made several bold claims during the interview including allegations that millions of dead people voted and that President Trump actually received 7 million more votes than he was given.

She also claimed that there will be witnesses coming forward in the near future who may need witness protection.

“We’re fixin’ to overturn the results of the election in multiple states, and President Trump won by not just hundreds of thousands of votes but by millions of votes that were shifted by this software that was designed expressly for that purpose,” Powell said. “We have sworn witness testimony of why the software was designed. It was designed to rig elections.  He was fully briefed on it.  He saw it happen in other countries. It was exported internationally for profit by the people that are behind Smartmatic and Dominion.”

“They did this on purpose. It was calculated and they’ve done it before,” she continued. “We have evidence from 2016 in California. We have so much evidence I feel like it’s coming in through a fire hose.” <Source>

Show me the evidence...

In the Memorandum Opinion (Case No. 4:20-CV-02078; Document 202; Filed 11/21/20)  delivered by United States District Judge Matthew W. Brann in the District Court of the Middle District of Pennsylvania, the Judge asks the singular most important question everybody is asking...

"In this action, the Trump Campaign and the Individual Plaintiffs (collectively, the “Plaintiffs”) seek to discard millions of votes legally cast by Pennsylvanians from all corners – from Greene County to Pike County, and everywhere in between.

In other words, Plaintiffs ask this Court to disenfranchise almost seven million voters. This Court has been unable to find any case in which a plaintiff has sought such a drastic remedy in the contest of an election, in terms of the sheer volume of votes asked to be invalidated.

One might expect that when seeking such a startling outcome, a plaintiff would come formidably armed with compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption,  such that this Court would have no option but to regrettably grant the proposed injunctive relief despite the impact it would have on such a large group of citizens.

That has not happened.

Instead, this Court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations, unpled in the operative complaint and unsupported by evidence. In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state. Our people, laws, and institutions demand more. At bottom, Plaintiffs have failed to meet their burden to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.

Therefore, I grant Defendants’ motions and dismiss Plaintiffs’ action with prejudice."

Powell promises three federal lawsuits coming Thanksgiving week. So an answer to some important questions might be forthcoming.

Please explain to me why not one attorney went to court to seek an emergency order for discovery, the use of a U.S. Marshall to sequester a sample of ballots and a number of machines, the appointment of a special master to seize and examine proprietary code under court seal? Where are the DOJ and FBI because election fraud is a federal crime?

Of course, the algorithm may be self-erasing, overwritten by local or remote code, or simply exists in volatile memory that disappears when the system is powered off. But, the hooks into such code will exist.

Since a number of intellectual property attorneys and companies have experience with the forensic examination of code-related issues, the absence of these experts is a red flag that cuts against the Trump legal team.

Bottom line…

I still believe that it is possible that Trump is using the delaying lawsuits to negotiate a deal that protects him, his family, and his company from prosecution when he leaves office and that such an agreement would also apply to various states run by progressive socialist democrats. If Trump really has overwhelming proof of the allegations this would be a very powerful incentive for the Democrats who want to protect their party.

Life goes on outside of politics, and we are screwed. Hopefully, we will have another election to attempt the halt of progressive socialist democrats and their authoritarian nonsense.

ELECTION 2020: ATTACKING THE TRUMP LEGAL TEAM, NOT THE POSSIBILITY OF ELECTION FRAUD

Day + 18, and the focus has shifted from potential election fraud to denigrating Trump’s legal team…

vote-day-after-18

For those shouting “show me the evidence of election fraud…”

TRUMPTEAM

(1)  Evidence that is acceptable to the courts comes in five basic forms: physical evidence consisting of objects pertinent to the allegations; documentary evidence pertinent to the allegations and considered to be equivalent to physical evidence; oral testimony under oath pertinent to the allegations; and affidavits pertaining to the allegations which are taken under penalty and considered to be the equivalent of oral testimony. In some cases, the results of expert experiments and demonstrations may also considered evidence.

(2)  All evidence is subject to admissibility rules and subject to challenge by the opposition or the judge.

(3)  Any attorney or legal team does not owe anything to the media, the general public, nor their opposition to disclose details of future or pending cases. Their duty is to represent their clients and present their case in a court of competent jurisdiction at an appropriate time, mindful of any deadlines that would render their efforts moot and unacceptable to the court.

What is being described as the Giuliani press conference was only meant to counter 24/7 negative media narratives and present a glimpse of the evidence; much in the manner of an opening statement, which is used to describe the case and what the attorneys hope to prove using the evidence that will be presented. The sworn affidavits are evidence. It is up to the opposition and a judge to challenge their truthfulness and applicability before deciding what remedy, if any, can be applied to redress the situation.

It is not over until it is over…

Famed attorney and former Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz has noted that a challenge of all the rules created by election officials and judges, without corresponding actions by state legislatures, may be subject to successful challenge as being unconstitutional. Article II Section I of the U.S. Constitution gives each state the authority to create election rules and to appoint its electors in whatever manner the state Legislature directs -- and not necessarily based on the popular vote. That is assuming there are no “faithless electors” who will vote their conscience and refuse to take orders from the state legislature.

The key goal of Trump’s team would be to deny Biden 270 electoral votes and for the matter to be thrown into the House of Representatives where Trump has a relatively small chance of prevailing. There is no certainty of any outcome.

Where is the media?

For four long years, the mainstream media has published leaks, rumors, and random information about a non-existent Trump/Russia hoax. Actual evidence was either ignored or mischaracterized. One might think that honest journalists working for credible media outlets would be asking their own questions, interviewing participants, and investigating claims of fraud. Most government and large commercial buildings have camera systems. Why has nobody mentioned looking at records that might show the middle-of-the-night vote delivery?

Bottom line…

No matter who you are or who you represent, there are so many anomalies and strange happenings that there is a certain circumstantial weight to the plausible assumption that something went very wrong and all major errors benefited Biden.

Personal smell test: I have a hard time believing that a candidate who couldn’t get fifteen people to attend a rally would get millions of more votes than Obama and a guy that packs stadiums. All the votes went in the right direction, in the right places, and at the right (same) times – even while losing large percentages of his core minority constituency groups. And that election officials knew that they would get only a slap on the wrist for breaking the rules.

Even if the allegations that the 2020 election were stolen by an evil cabal of progressive socialist democrats and an evil collection of international leftists who manipulated vote tabulating software to flip millions of votes from Trump to Biden are wrong, any intensive investigation and forensic examination of software would be beneficial to allaying future suspicions and ensure election integrity

We should pay attention to those Republicans who refuse to stand up for the party at this crucial time and given them basement closets for offices, no committee appointments, and no party funding.

We are so screwed.

2020 ELECTIONS: ELECTION CASES ARE WON IN COURT, NOT PRESS CONFERENCES

Welcome to Day + 17, where counts, recounts, challenges, and court cases dominate our attention…

We have seen issues with count irregularities; lost votes; disparate treatment of different voter classes involving mail versus in-person votes, those allowed to cure ballot defects versus those ballots that were discarded; unmonitored vote and recount efforts; lack of vote chain of custody; adequately explained count suspensions, uniform ballot marks, statistical anomalies, changes in rules without legislative authority, and others. If any of these documented defects rise to compromise an election at the county or state level it will be the responsibility of the state legislatures and the courts to resolve outstanding issues.

vote-day-after-17

An essential truth: The key to understanding the current situation is to understand that allegations of fraud are NOT the equivalent of fraud and that it unlikely that any court or legislature will disenfranchise large numbers of voters or invalidate an entire election based on a small percentage of defective ballots or improper procedures.

Another dog and pony show…

Once again, the Trump team hosts a media event – and, once again, it lacks specificity and is filled with speculation, supposition, and, quite frankly, bullshit!

TRUMPTEAM

According to the principal speakers, the purpose of the presser was to present the equivalent of an “opening statement” and to give a glimpse of some of the “evidence” so that attacks by the “fake media” could be overcome. Some of the most important points being: this group only three lawsuits, sufficient time to proceed, and all of the other suits were brought by unaffiliated individuals and organizations – many of which were dismissed for lack of standing before the Court.

Are these near-fantastic tales of massive electronic election fraud believable or even possible?

One, we have seen the Obama White House, Democrat members of Congress, and our premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies engaged in an effort to use Democrat-created disinformation (the Steele Dossier) to spy on Americans and to attempt the removal a sitting president from office. This is a demonstrable FACT.

Two, we have seen efforts by the Department of Homeland Defense to affiliate with those who are creating electronic voting devices and auditing software which could affect our domestic elections. And, its alliance with a radical progressive socialist democrat organization is well-documented.

Just when you believe it can't get worse, a government agency (CISA) doesn't disclose it is partnering with an uber-partisan group that is fundamentally un-American...

Voting Works

VotingWorks is a left-of-center non-profit provider of voting machines and open-source election verification software.

In November 2019, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced it would partner with VotingWorks to pilot the use of its vote verification software in six battleground states during the November 2020 election.

In April 2020, responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, VotingWorks announced it would be providing technological assistance to states and local jurisdictions seeking to scale-up voting by mail opportunities.

Voting works was created within and incubated by the left-leaning Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT).

Background

VotingWorks was created within and incubated by the left-leaning Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) in December 2018 and later and spun off as a separate non-profit.  CDT’s major donors are large technology firms, such as Amazon, Google, Facebook, Apple, and Microsoft; and large left-of-center foundations, including George Soros’s Foundation to Promote Open Society, the Ford Foundation, and the MacArthur Foundation.

VotingWorks builds voting machines and audit software tools to intended to verify that votes cast on a paper-based voting system are correctly tabulated. It publishes some of the code it writes on GitHub, a Microsoft subsidiary that hosts and promotes open-source software.

One of these tools is Arlo, an open-source software designed to perform a risk-limiting audit after an election is completed. A risk limiting audit spot checks a sample of verified paper ballots against the results tabulated by electronic voting machines to verify the sample was counted accurately. In November 2019 the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced it would partner with VotingWorks to pilot the use of Arlo in six battleground states during the November 2020 election.

[OCS: Voting system manufacturer? An audit tool created to sample and verify election results? Government involvement in election systems?]

In 2019, VotingWorks ran polling machines in Choctaw County, Mississippi. Mississippi is one of the few states that uses voting machines that have not been certified by federally authorities, and has no method for state certification. A report from ProPublica portrayed the lack of federal certification as an advantage for VotingWorks.

For VotingWorks and the election officials in Mississippi, the fact that the machines had not been federally certified was a plus, not a risk. Set up nearly two decades ago to try and improve the reliability of voting systems, the federal certification process is today seen by many as an impediment to the kind of technological progress urgently needed in the field.

The process — overseen by the federal Election Assistance Commission — is both lengthy and costly. And the long track record over the years of election scandals and controversies makes clear it hasn’t been all that effective.

2020 Vote By Mail Work

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, VotingWorks announced it would be helping states scale-up voting by mail. An April 2020 news release announced VotingWorks was building VxMail, a set of tools to help implement and deploy vote-by mail with services such as ballot printing, envelope stuffing, mailing, ballot receipt, signature verification, and ballot tabulation.VxMail is designed to assist jurisdictions that previously had only a few hundred ballots to deal with manually, but now may have thousands or tens of thousands. <Source>

It remains to be seen if any of the suspect Smartmatic code is incorporated in the voting or reporting systems. Of course, it is unlikely that malevolent actors would release information on secret code Easter-eggs or backdoors to the public.

Bottom line…

“We the People” have no alternative than to wait and see how this all plays out. In the meantime, we should be fighting to hold the Senate and participating in the two Georgia Senate races that, if lost, can further erode all of the constitutional checks and balances against a tyrannical one-party government.

We are so screwed.

2020 -- GOOGLE CENSORED POST

,vote-day-after-16

It is Day + 16…

The media-touted “Kraken,” the mythical octopus-like sea monster that Attorney Sidney Powell threatened to unleash, appears to be contained in supporting exhibit “C” in a court filing (CIVIL ACTION FILE NO. 1:20-cv-04651-SDG; Document 6-14 filed 11/17/20) requesting “declaratory relief and an emergency injunction from this Court halting the certification of Georgia's results for the November 3, 2020, presidential election.”

The partially-redacted document purports to be a declaration of an unnamed individual whose foreign military service appears to have involved him in observing the creation and operation of an undetectable vote manipulation system to benefit Venezuelan politicians. The software was purported to be created by Smartmatic and used in several foreign elections.

ex-1-p

ex-1

Now comes an uncorroborated leap of faith. The allegation is that the Smartmatic antecedent software is contained within the Dominion voting system and that no changes to its basic functionality have occurred over the years.

Ex-2It looks suspicious…

ex-3

Sworn under penalty of perjury…

Ex-4

If this is the Kraken, it is little more than a reason to forensically examine the Dominion system and any associated functions like vote recording, tabulating, and reporting. That it is a first-person declaration is almost meaningless as it does not appear that any of this information is corroborated in the present physical world with documentation, code snippets, programs, computer chips, and memory devices, or with multiple independent sources attesting to the particulars of the manipulation such as the system operators, observers, or other participants.

However, if this information is true and correct – AND WAS USED IN THE MANNER SUGGESTED TO SUBVERT AN ELECTION – all of the electors in the affected states should be ordered to cast their votes for Donald Trump. Followed by an investigation, prosecution, and if the participants are found guilty, sentenced to a Madoff-like life without the possibility of parole.

Most of the Lin Wood filing consists of affidavits witnessing procedural errors and suspicious behavior during counting and recounting. The statistical analysis included is suggestive but proves nothing. If I wanted to include such an analysis, I would depose Walter Mebane, professor of political science and statistics at the University of Michigan, who is an expert on election forensics, a field devoted to using statistical methods to determine whether the results of an election accurately reflect the intentions of the electors.

There will always be procedural errors, discrepancies, and human screw-ups in every election; however, any remedy that disenfranchises large numbers of voters is likely to unacceptable to the courts and likely to provoke anger in militant voters.

Not everybody, myself included, is happy with the quality of the Trump election legal team…

“I’m still a little concerned about the use of Rudy Giuliani. It strikes me that this is the most important lawsuit in the history of the country, and they’re not using the most well-noted election lawyers,” [Nick] Mulvaney, who served as President Donald Trump’s top aide from January 2019-March 2020, told Fox Business.

There are folks who do this all of the time. This is a specialty. This is not a television program. This is the real thing,” Mulvaney said. “And I was struck by a couple things that Rudy said in court yesterday. So on one hand, I think it needs to go forward. It absolutely does. I wish that it was being prosecuted a little more efficiently.”

Mulvaney’s assessment came after Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, filed a last-minute petition in federal court on Tuesday morning to represent the Trump campaign in its controversial lawsuit seeking to challenge the election results in Pennsylvania.

The former New York mayor proceeded to turn in a dramatic courtroom appearance on Tuesday afternoon, but struggled at times to answer the judge’s questions and mount an effective argument to back up the Trump campaign’s baseless claims of widespread voter fraud. <Source>

Is this becoming a “pay the attorneys” scheme?

Bottom line…

If this is the Kraken, I am less than impressed. As the former Chief Technologist of a computer company and a designer of financial software systems, from what I have observed with the handling of the CF (Compact Flash) memory cards and the temporary loss of thousands of votes, the system appears to be poorly designed and should not be certified until it is examined by independent forensic experts.

The primary issue with these voter inquiries is that those who are demanding evidence forget that the challengers do not have subpoena power to compel a forensic examination of the electronic voting systems and procedures. It is a time-consuming process that may be fought long after the inauguration. It may very well be that Biden will become an illegitimate President with little or no remedy for the American people. The state legislatures should return to their original rules and throw out all non-conforming votes.

It still looks more and more like a last-ditch Hail Mary play to blame electronic voting systems designed and operated by those with malevolent intent focused on Donald Trump.

We are so screwed.

AMERICA: HERE IS A TASTE OF THE UPCOMING BANANNA REPUBLIC COURTESY OF THE PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS

The amount of pressure to keep conservatives from asking questions about the election or commenting on irregularities is ramping up...

Disappeared by Google without warning…

Today, November 19, 2020, at 6:35 a.m., the web traffic linking to yesterday’s blog post “2020 ELECTIONS: IF THIS IS THE KRAKEN, IT IS AS SCARY AS COTTON CANDY” dropped precipitously. Checking the incoming traffic logs, it appeared that any referrals from Google had stopped – with traffic from Microsoft’s Bing and DuckDuckGo continuing as normal.

I had vanished much like other disappeared conservatives -- dropped by Google’s search algorithm into the uncharted ocean of data.

Here are the results of an “exact match” search on Google, Microsoft Bing, and DuckDuckGo…

As you can see, exact match searches returned top-line results in both Bing and DuckDuckGo, with only an incidentals mentions in Google -- not the post itself-- that was part of another blog or my blog page index.

This is becoming a pattern and practice facing conservatives in this increasingly authoritarian world where the mainstream media and the oligarchs of the social media platforms have assumed power over people, politicians, and our uniquely American culture.

Disappeared from MailChimp, the email service provider, without explanation and zero warning…

Atlanta, Georgia-based Mailchimp, the marketing automation platform and email marketing service founded by tech billionaire Ben Chestnut is joining other “woke” progressive organizations in suppressing or censoring your conservative content, especially if you supported Donald Trump.  MAILCHIMP

No warning, no explanation, and no response to a legitimate request for details…

Yes, he is woke…

“Our Co-founder and CEO, Ben Chestnut, announced that Mailchimp is offering price relief for organizations working to end social injustice in the United States in response to the murder of George Floyd and the nationwide protests against police brutality and systemic racism.” <Source>

Fighting back...

Demand legislation that removes the legal, safe harbor for any organization that acts as a content-controlling publisher rather than content-neutral platforms.

Use a more honest search engine.

Screw with the system. See an email with a Mailchimp indicia, report its contents as objectionable or spam regardless of the content. Make random entries on a Mailchimp survey

Find better vendors to support your marketing efforts.  

Bottom line…

Discovery among the growing number of internet offers is a necessity for business survival. Pretty much why search engines stopped being conveniences and morphed into what should be public utilities, regulated to ensure fairness and to prevent deliberate abuses of power by their owners. It is analogous to other corporations that are attempting to enforce their morality by social engineering their customers -- like credit card companies refusing to process payments from conservative organizations or banks refusing to make loans to manufacturers or sellers of firearms.

Be extremely careful when relying on search engine results or outsourcing critical business operations to vendors like Mailchimp who have weaponized their unilateral “take it or leave it” terms of service to push their toxic woke progressive socialist democrat ideology.

If the mainstream media and tech oligarchs were intellectually honest, one would think they would have a problem with Democrats, the party of slavery, segregation, racism, division, and the KKK. But, then there is Ben Chestnut donating $1,000 to Stacy Abrams, the black progressive socialist democrat activist/agitator who thinks she is the Governor of Georgia after losing the election. Where are her “fact checks?”

We are so screwed when we find ourselves at the mercy of media moguls and tech tyrants.
