2020 ELECTIONS: PROSPECTING FOR DIAMONDS IN MY POCKET

It is Day + 11, and we are still counting ballots as first-person sworn allegations of voter fraud continue to be filed with various courts. Again, that is not to say that the amount of any voter fraud discovered will be sufficient to reverse the election or that any Court is willing to provide relief.

vote-day-after-11

What are the personal and professional consequences of government employees telling the whole truth?

While you might feel good about being an honest, ethical, morally upstanding individual with principles, the short-term feeling is bound to be trumped by the feeling of desperation and dread caused by the loss of your job and prospecting, possibly at an advanced age, for a new one that pays a similar salary. Shunned by friends, colleagues, and peers as someone who may have endangered their own jobs. Even silence can be misinterpreted as a quiet affirmation of the truth – something is wrong – and do a similar amount of harm. The only option other than truth-telling and silence is lying. The degree of enthusiasm, volume, and feigned sincerity being the key metrics of a liar's success.

But, wait, there is one stratagem that allows you to tell the truth with enthusiasm, volume, and sincerity.

Imagine you are a professional prospector and have nothing to report to your employer that would justify your continuing employment next year. You have a reputation for telling the truth and a history of productive discoveries; what would you do?  How easy would it be to prospect for diamonds in your pocket and report to your employer that there are no diamonds to be found in the local vicinity of your search? A one-hundred-percent true statement. By narrowing or expanding your search criteria, you can produce results that are both personally and professionally acceptable.

It all depends on where you are looking…

JOINT STATEMENT FROM ELECTIONS INFRASTRUCTURE GOVERNMENT COORDINATING COUNCIL & THE ELECTION INFRASTRUCTURE SECTOR COORDINATING EXECUTIVE COMMITTEES

Original release date: November 12, 2020


The members of Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council (GCC) Executive Committee – Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Assistant Director Bob Kolasky, U.S. Election Assistance Commission Chair Benjamin Hovland, National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) President Maggie Toulouse Oliver, National Association of State Election Directors (NASED) President Lori Augino, and Escambia County (Florida) Supervisor of Elections David Stafford – and the members of the Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Council (SCC) – Chair Brian Hancock (Unisyn Voting Solutions), Vice Chair Sam Derheimer (Hart InterCivic), Chris Wlaschin (Election Systems & Software), Ericka Haas (Electronic Registration Information Center), and Maria Bianchi (Democracy Works) - released the following statement:


The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. Right now, across the country, election officials are reviewing and double checking the entire election process prior to finalizing the result.

[OCS: This is a nonsensical statement as there is no comparison data available. Reviewing, double-checking illegitimate ballots may produce a count – but it is far from an honest count.

In many instances, election officials may have been complicit in vote manipulation, some denying opposition poll-watchers from observing the count or actually seeing the physical ballot being counted.]

“When states have close elections, many will recount ballots. All of the states with close results in the 2020 presidential race have paper records of each vote, allowing the ability to go back and count each ballot if necessary. This is an added benefit for security and resilience. This process allows for the identification and correction of any mistakes or errors.

[OCS: This is total bullshit, like prospecting for diamonds in your pocket. There are a number of sworn statements, under the penalty of perjury, that ballots were backdated, accepted after the official time limit, were stripped from their outer envelopes showing postmarks and signatures, or otherwise arrived from sources outside the chain of custody. Therefore, having a paper ballot in and of itself is not proof of a legitimately-cast ballot.]

There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.

[OCS: Developing evidence requires time and access to machines – likely to be denied during the small time window during the count and denied by the device’s manufacturer as being proprietary code.]

“Other security measures like pre-election testing, state certification of voting equipment, and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s (EAC) certification of voting equipment help to build additional confidence in the voting systems used in 2020.

[OCS: How many jurisdictions use this software?

"On October 2-3, 2019, Dominion Voting Systems ("Dominion" or the "Vendor") presented the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system for examination and certification. The examination was conducted in Austin, Texas.

FINDINGS

The following are the findings, based on written evidence submitted by the Vendor in support of its application for certification, oral evidence presented at the examination, and the findings of the voting system examiners as set out in their written reports.

The examiner reports identified multiple hardware and software issues that preclude the Office of the Texas Secretary of State from determining that the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system satisfies each of the voting-system requirements set forth in the Texas Election Code. Specifically, the examiner reports raise concerns about whether the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system is suitable for its intended purpose; operates efficiently and accurately; and is safe from fraudulent or unauthorized manipulation. Therefore, the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system and corresponding hardware devices do not meet the standards for certification prescribed by Section 122.001 of the Texas Election Code."

Of course, Dominion vehemently denies any issues with its software, as one might expect. But, that makes a case for an independent examination and code check outside of government control.

I reviewed one user handbook that directs users to copy-and-paste the voter file onto a compact flash card to be transmitted to election officials. Mickey-Mouse, to say the least, with opportunities for fraud self-evident. ]

While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should too.

[OCS: Nothing to see here, move along.]

When you have questions, turn to elections officials as trusted voices as they administer elections.”

[OCS: Trusted voices my ass. You mean election officials like Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, who defied a Pennsylvania Supreme Court Ruling, issued conflicting orders benefiting one candidate over another, and is demonstrably corrupt? Or the petty officials that went out of their way to deny access to legitimate credentialed poll-watchers or who accepted mass deliveries of ballots with unknown provenance?

Or, Georgia’s secretary of state, the RINO Brad Raffensperger, who announced a full hand recount of the presidential race but claimed signature matching is impossible during recounts because ballot envelopes can’t be traced back to ballots once they’re opened. It should be noted that this fact does not preclude using signatures to get a gross estimate of ballot fraud.

Curiously, only 0.03% of the GA ballots were found to be defective and discarded when it is normally 3%. Something statistically stinks. Not to mention an unrealistic 24-hour allotment for the recount and the unobservable recount effort.

How does one explain that a large number of ballots have only presidential votes? Could it be that those who filled out the ballots did not have time to fill out the rest of the ballot -- forgetting that statistical systems red-flag the effort?] 

<Source>

How many government workers would be willing to say anything that casts any hint of illegitimacy on a party that is most like to assume power in the next few months?

There are any number of issues surrounding Dominion software which is used in twenty-eight states...

Starting with the fact that Dominion is a foreign company and has associations with dodgy foreign nationals.  

Pre-Election Concerns Over Dominion Voting Systems Highlighted in Georgia Lawsuit

Officials raised concerns for years about security of US voting machines, software systems

96% Of Dominion Voting Systems Political Donations Went To Democrats

CIVIL ACTION NO. 1:17-CV-2989-AT (05-21-2019) Donna CURLING, et al., Plaintiffs, v. Brad RAFFENSPERGER, et al., Defendants.

Let us reserve a special place in voter hell for Supreme Court Justice John Roberts…

Adding to the election chaos, Justice Roberts' vote on a Pennsylvania ballot dispute led to a 4-4 Supreme Court deadlock that left in place a Pennsylvania court decision allowing mailed ballots to be counted up to three days after Election Day. Definitely an incentive to submit fraudulent “midnight ballots.”

Bottom line...

This election goes beyond a tragedy for Trump; it is a travesty for the American people.

Should ballots with unknown provenance be thrown out? What about ballots that no longer can be associated with a signature or date indicia? What about votes that were cured with a provisional ballot per the direction of a government worker or a partisan party given the voter's name in violation of the law? These are all matters for the court to decide. Unfortunately, many courts have been politicized and no longer serve as a check-and-balance to ensure a system free from fraud and that promotes tyranny.

Beware of so-called government, media, and independent fact-checks. Many are partisan or funded by partisan sources. When it comes to the media, most have sacrificed their journalist credibility on the altar of ratings and revenue – even in the face of a declining and dying business model.

More and more, it looks like Biden will become President in a manifestly fraudulent election that saw many election safeguards overturned by non-legislative sources contrary to established law. It may be likely that we will see another four years of claimed illegitimacy and a vocal activist former president, much like Obama second-guessing the administration's actions. Of course, his comments will not be carried by a corrupted mainstream media so Trump may decide to build a media platform to counter the mainstream media. The 2022 and 2024 elections can be greatly impacted with 70,000,000+ citizens believing the election had been stolen.

We are so screwed.

ELECTIONS 2020 -- ICEBERG BIDEN AHEAD

It is Day + 10, and we are still counting ballots as allegations of voter fraud continue to be reported. Again, that is not to say that the amount of any voter fraud discovered will be sufficient to reverse the election or that any Court is willing to provide relief.

vote-day-after-10

Iceberg Biden…

The biggest unanswered question I have about Joe Biden is the degree to which he has been compromised by China and other hostile foreign powers. You know, China who has funneled massive amounts of money to the Biden family and friends. The China that has killed hundreds of thousands of Americans, impacted our economy, our healthcare, our social customs, and our election by enabling fraud-prone mail ballots.

And then there are the consequences of Biden’s proposed policies on energy, resulting in higher energy costs and a further reduction in the nation’s energy resiliency. On immigration policies that will produce fewer jobs for Americans, especially the poor, ill-educated, and people of color.

Of course, there is wealth redistribution. Or as Mark Levin reminds us: your income represents the combination of your physical and mental work throughout most of your life, so how do you feel about the government taking a portion of those hours of effort (taxes) and giving them to someone else – perhaps someone unwilling to work as hard as you or perhaps someone willing to vote for the politician and their party?

Overnight voter fraud?

For many Republicans, President Trump's quick early-morning demise after an apparently successful evening of vote tallies came as a shock. Sure, Trump had been struggling against a coordinated and hostile mainstream media attack since the day he announced his candidacy. And, there were those Tweets and other pronouncements that seemed angry, ill-advised, or ill-informed, sometimes re-tweeting patently false and misleading information. But the one thing that shocked the conscience was the appearance of overt and covert coordination of the progressive socialist democrats to actually steal an election, not by dribs and drabs, but by massive, statistically detectible vote counts.

To be sure, the pandemic-induced quarantine was a shock to most people, both financially and existentially, as they worried about food, toilet paper, masks, and disinfectants. But it also increased the amount of time one was exposed to hostile mainstream media. Trump existed in the space between two different messages: one, a message of promises kept and achievement, and the other, suppressing a positive narrative in the face of a negative one.

In retrospect, while the eventual election outcome seemed almost inevitable given the forces arrayed against President Trump, real truths were revealed.

(1) The Democrat Party no longer represented the majority of middle-class working individuals living outside of urban areas. It became the Party of the uber-wealthy elites and the upper-middle-class college-educated elites who pandered to the poor and people of color. It didn't seem to matter to some minority voters that decades of governance under Democrats produced little or no gain for either the poor or people of color, often one and the same. The Republicans now, in spite of common perception, represented the middle class, the workers, and the minorities in the 2020 election.

(2)  The Democrat Party was infiltrated by communists who believed that the label "Democratic Socialism" could hide a toxic revolutionary ideology that failed everywhere it had been tried and often enveloped its citizens in misery that required increasing authoritarianism to prevent another revolution.

(3)  Premier government agencies, especially those dealing with intelligence, law enforcement, the affairs of state, and other regulatory agencies, were compromised by political operatives -- by an embedded bureaucracy seeded by the previous Democrat administrations. By a second-rate or self-interested leadership that was not adequately vetted by a rather lazy administration. By the special interests who moved inside the government as advisors since their previous role of lobbyists was denigrated and denied access.

(4)  The mainstream media, usually a constitutionally-protected investigatory bulwark against political and social excesses, was compromised. Where corporate interests destroyed the wall between commerce and editorial, especially in the form of the promotion and protection of their corporate interests -- the people to be damned and distracted by celebrities and tales of the bizarre.

(5)  Many of the "bougie protestors" were white, college-educated bored and disaffected individuals who were led by anonymous activists and agitators whose goal was creating chaos for political purposes—welcomed by the criminal class as an opportunity to loot with a low probability of arrest or being held responsible for their actions.

(6)  What can one say about the local elected officials who praised the unruly mob and ordered law enforcement to "stand down?" Denying the basic protections of life, property, and the general peace to the constituents who elected them for that sole purpose. Especially when you see miscreants like Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, whose malfeasance, misfeasance, and nonfeasance was rewarded by another four years in office. Mirroring what is happening in the nation, Wheeler was supported by the well-to-do suburban west-siders located away from the months of nightly pandemonium and well-to-do members of the business community.

(7)  We actually discovered the source of systemic racism in our country. Not surprising it was connected to the Democrat Party, the Party of slavery, segregation, oppression, the KKK, and other civil rights atrocities. It is a union-dominated educational system run for the Democrats who want to indoctrinate rather than educate, the unions who collect massive amounts of money and seem to support mostly Democrats, and the special interests who build sub-standard buildings and supply sub-standards goods and services at exorbitant prices. They refuse to implement school choice or the type of hiring and firing standards that would improve education for minorities at failing inner-city schools. The Democrats also hate to impose school discipline as that produces unfavorable statistics relating to minorities in minority-dominated areas.

Bottom line…

Why does it seem like there is a lot of confidence about the upcoming Biden Administration? The foremost reason seems to be the betrayal of the mainstream media and the censorship of the oligarchs that control the social media platforms.

What do the media elites know that we don't. Not a damn thing. Their business model is imploding, and they are in survival mode -- willing to take us down with their sinking ship.

I can't help but wonder, as the America ship of state slowly sinks, how much can I protect?

While almost all of today's politics is bullshit, there are real consequences that will affect our military, our economy, our healthcare, our governance -- and most of all, our daily lives.

When all the news of our future is filtered through the corrupt New York Times, the Washington Post, Facebook, and Twitter, we are so screwed.

WHY AREN'T VOTING OFFICIALS REQUIRED TO PROVE THEIR SYSTEMS ARE SECURE AND NO SYSTEMATIC FRAUD WAS COMMITTED UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY?

ELECTIONS 2020 -- IT'S GETTING WEIRDER IN MEDIA-LAND

It is Day + 9, and we are still counting ballots as allegations of voter fraud abound. That is not to say that the amount of any voter fraud discovered will be sufficient to reverse the election. However, it does appear that the mainstream media is continuing their deceptive campaign to promote their presumptive president-elect, drive the narrative of an out-of-control pandemic that demands a President Biden to “fix” the problem and to further denigrate and disparage President Trump.

Wisconsin, Georgia, and Arizona are still in play, and if captured, there will be a tie in the Electoral College, and the election will go to the House of Representatives where a majority of Republican delegations will probably ensure a Trump victory. Counts and re-counts will take at least two weeks. How do these corrupt media sources know anything after four years of lying about the Russian collusion hoax?

vote-day-after-9

The media continues to attempt to bully the President into conceding his office and for the states to abandon their constitutional process and anoint Biden as the President of the United States. You would think that the media would be attempting to root out election fraud on their own rather than excoriating those trying to uphold our constitution. 

The media and the pandemic…spr

MEDIA-1

From what has been written and reported, a Biden Administration would continue to execute the Trump Administration’s pandemic plans with only minor modifications that would include a re-branding of the program and distribution, a change of top-level, public-facing personnel, and possibly enshrining a politicized Dr. Anthony Fauci as the face of “The Science.”

The media and the President on drugs…

After the President’s whirlwind, non-stop campaign rallies, the rumor of a President Trump on drugs is re-surfacing. Namely the suggestion that he is taking or abusing Adderall, an amphetamine known on the street as “speed,” “meth,” or “crank” The drug, which is a stimulant used to treat hyperactivity disorders, can also increase your ability to pay attention, stay focused on an activity, keep you awake, and increase energy levels. Normally, this would be ignored, except that many are pointing to a now-progressive publication with a formerly credible history.

Accusations Trump is taking performance-enhancing drugs

There has long been unverified speculation that Trump uses drugs. This appears to have started during the 2016 presidential debates with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, when Trump's sniffing was linked to possible drug use. Some have accused the president of snorting Adderall, a stimulant used to enhance focus or treat attention issues. Actor and comedian Tom Arnold accused President Donald Trump of previously taking the drug on the set of NBC's The Apprentice.

"Donald Trump abused Adderall on the set & it made him crazy. He even snorted Adderall. Mark Burnett knew it. It's scary," he wrote in a tweet.

[OCS: The suggestion that this is real fact-checking is bullpucky. It is little more than a sensational clickbait headline, the media reporting on the media and whacked-out celebrities, and a less-than-convincing denial.]

Trump's refusal to release his medical records has only added to the speculation about his health and some of his public appearances, like his walk down a ramp at West Point, have contributed to concerns about his health.

[OCS: Trump was wearing leather-soled shoes and walking down a slippery incline – fearing, as he said, falling on his ass on national television. Understandably, Trump would not release any financial or medical records which could be politically exploited by a hostile press that started pressing an attack on the very day of his candidacy and apparently scheduled to the end-of-time. Regardless of what you have heard about Trump’s taxes, they have always been in the hands of official agencies, local, state, and federal, and only the fear of felonious prosecution keeps them from being leaked to the media or published using “anonymous” sources.]

Is there evidence of Trump taking performance-enhancing drugs?

Despite a lot of commentary on the matter, there is no evidence that Trump is taking performance-enhancing drugs. His stated willingness to be drug tested for the debates would also seem to undermine this claim, although the medical records from his doctor do not include the results of any drug tests. <Source>

The media and a transactional President Trump…

I am beginning to hear stories about the President offering to go quietly into the night given ironclad agreements that he will not be prosecuted by local, state, or federal authorities once out of office. The idea that the President will go quietly into the night runs counter to stories of an offer of a Trump media platform – possibly hosted by NBC to revive what is sure to be an NBC post-Trump ratings and revenue slump. In essence, a transactional Trump will become part of the very media he previously left and appears willing to rejoin. Although he would still be one of the oldest presidents, there is talk of fundraising for a 2024 campaign.

The sound of Biden bullshit…

In one of his first post-election speeches, Joseph Biden claimed, I pledge to be a President who seeks not to divide, but to unify. Who doesn’t see red and blue states, but a United States. And who will work with all my heart to win the confidence of the whole people.”

Total bullshit because the entire modus operandi of the Democrat Party is to divide Americans, create victims by class, race, and sex, and then cobble together a coalition of victims, promising a redress of grievances in return for political power and surrendering some of your individual freedoms to benefit the collective.

How do you unify people who have been demonized for years as evil people, racists, white supremacists, and oppressors of the poor, downtrodden, and people of color? Knowing that you are a lying asswipe -- full-well-knowing that your party will resume the demonization in time for the 2022 congressional election and the 2024 presidential election.

A strange scenario…

Some believe it is possible that President Trump will present a convincing legal case that the election was impacted by fraud – and then concede. The theory being, after four years of Biden/Harris or Harris/???, the country will provide an overwhelming GOP sweep in 2024, including the House, the Senate, and another Trump presidency. Just calculating the odds of Trump willingly giving up for a future payoff is giving me a headache.

My personal question is simple: what now?

rsc-1

Look for the Trump-era artifacts to be buried in the sands of time by those who claim that the GOP will never accept a Biden presidency as legitimate. Ironic, coming from those who never accepted the Trump presidency as being legitimate for the past four years. Too bad the mythical Indiana Jones was an archeologist, not a historian.

Bottom line…

Look for many of the intellectually dishonest "academics” and “journalists” to start publishing books explaining how our world was subverted and forever changed by a coalition between the progressive media, social platforms, and a radically un-American communist-infiltrated Democrat Party. You might want to consider reading Professor Sinan Aral’s “The Hype Machine: How Social Media Disrupts Our Elections, Our Economy, and Our Health--and How We Must Adapt.”

We go on with our lives, the media and Democrats be damned. That does not mean we give up the fight for our nation and our Constitution. We do what we can do and engage in self-defense preparedness.

We are so screwed.

VETERANS DAY 2020 -- THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE

Honoring our troops on today’s Veterans Day …

Capture11-10-2010-8.06.22 PM

Lest we not forget …

Jane Fonda, American Traitor …

As we go about our daily tasks, let us for a moment consider the service of Senator John McCain, a prisoner of war who suffered terribly at the hands of our enemy while just mere miles away, a far-left liberal, Jane Fonda, laughed and sat on an anti-aircraft gun as she called our American troops “war criminals."

Capture10-31-2008-10.44.40 AM

Aside from visiting villages, hospitals, schools, and factories, Fonda also posed for pictures in which she was shown applauding North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gunners, was photographed peering into the sights of an NVA anti-aircraft artillery launcher, and made ten propagandistic Tokyo Rose-like radio broadcasts in which she denounced American political and military
leaders as "war criminals." She also spoke with eight American POWs at a carefully arranged "press conference," POWs who had been tortured by their North Vietnamese captors to force them to meet with Fonda, deny they had been tortured, and decry the American war effort. <Source>

And an accounting which is not complete …

For some as yet unexplained reason, John McCain approved legislation that has kept Americans from getting a complete accounting of our MIAs from Viet Nam.

The legislation ensured that “… the Defense Department is not obligated to tell the public about prisoners believed alive in captivity and what efforts are being made to rescue them. It only has to notify the White House and the intelligence committees in the Senate and House. The committees are forbidden under law from releasing such information.” For those who wish to read an interesting article on McCain’s efforts to prevent a full and complete accounting of MIAs, it can be found at “ The War Secrets Sen. John McCain Hides: Former POW Fights Public Access To POW/MIA Files.”

Bottom line …

Our nation and each citizen owes an unpayable debt to those who risk life and limb to protect our right to prosper or protest in complete freedom from a totalitarian government.

  • If you see a soldier in uniform, thank them for their service – especially since it is completely voluntary. If you see a veteran down on his luck, extend a helping hand.
  • Do not let our people and our government forget the sacrifice made by our troops.
  • Do not let those who would denigrate and demean our military go unchallenged.
  • Do not let the media spin a story that is contemptuous of those who protect our freedom without pointing out that it may have been the actions of relatively few individuals involved and they do not represent the military.

And, no matter what the spin, you are not a private citizen exercising your “free speech rights” when you give aid and comfort to America’s enemies by making propaganda announcements --  you are a traitor.

Most of all, tell those in the far-left who are openly anti-military and anti-America where to step off. <insert strong language message here>

ELECTIONS 2020: SHUT UP AND MOVE ON

It is Day + 8, and we are still counting ballots as allegations of voter abound. That is not to say that the amount of any voter fraud discovered will be enough to reverse the election.

Vote-day-after-8

The media has anointed Joe Biden as the President-elect without any constitutional or legal basis. With the symbology readily apparent as Biden moves out of the basement to the podium on the world stage.

p-elect

Speaking in Delaware, “Presumptive President-elect” Joe Biden commented on President Trump’s legitimate refusal to concede the election until the electoral process is complete and verified, “I just think it’s an embarrassment, quite frankly. I think it will not help the president’s legacy.”

No matter the outcome of the election, President Trump’s legacy as one of the nation’s greatest presidents has already been secured. Biden’s legacy will be far more inconsequential and possibly extremely dark if he destroys healthcare, reaffirms international climate accords, does a deal with Iran, and cripples our economy.

The mainstream is likely to continue ignoring the fact that there is nothing to concede as the count is not complete, neither is the re-canvass, and the electors have not even met.

The constitutionally protected media is complicit in destroying our nation.

No matter what the voter fraud investigators may find, the most virulent forms of election interference came from the mainstream media and the billionaire oligarchs who control the major search and social media platforms -- from simply omitting true and relevant news stories, substituting narrative for facts, re-ranking search results, selectively refusing to sell political advertising, or de-platforming dissenting voices and legitimate discussions. It appears that the media has gone from the promotion of a specious hoax involving the so-called Steele dossier and the acceptance and reporting of the merest whisper of rumor to demanding absolute proof of voter fraud before reporting on first-hand, and sometimes sworn, testimony regarding fraud in this latest election. 

Where are the skeptical investigative journalists with the bulldog tenacity to cover legitimate news stories, especially those that will impact America, all Americans, and our exceptional standard of living?

It appears that they are majorly influenced by the corporatists who control their employment and publish their works. Corporatists that not only lean left but who embrace radical chic and the revolution. Full-well knowing that they are mostly immune from the consequences of their actions and utterances – until they aren’t and their vicious guard dog attacks them and their children.

Who will investigate all of those Democrat ballots that lacked down-ballot votes and were cast for Joe Biden? While there are a number of people who do not vote for lesser candidates, it is unlikely that the numbers would exceed statistical norms. Much like the anomaly of unprecedented numbers of individuals (90%+) voting in certain areas.

Who will investigate those grossly improbable media-sponsored polls and their use to enhance fundraising and suppress voter turnout?

Even more important, who will investigate the public health officials and Democrat governors who used false and misleading statistics and media narratives to command illegitimate authority to hobble our economy and introduce last-minute voter schemes susceptible to fraud?

The threat to declassify documents…

Those miscreants who are guilty of collusion with foreign powers, a conspiracy to interfere with presidential elections, and those who are guilty of various and sundry criminal acts are tempering their celebrations, knowing that, in the waning days of the Trump Administration, a rightfully angry Donald Trump could declassify and publish the very documents they have so desperately tried to keep hidden.

Knowing that within those documents might be reputation-ruining revelations that might still lead to an investigation, prosecution, and punishment. These are the same individuals claiming, mostly falsely, that such a document dump would compromise national security by revealing methods and sources. And, it is the sources in which the public is most interested in.

Bottom line…

Without the mainstream media and electronic assistance of the techno-lords, the Biden campaign would have faded into the woodwork. Biden himself being a corrupt individual, but infinitely more likable than Hillary Clinton, would have been a footnote to history as Trump continued his battle against the swamp creatures.

The obvious conclusion: the voting system is not fair, it is virtually un-auditable, and it can and has been rigged -- by those who told us the 2016 Hillary Clinton election was rigged by Donald Trump and the GOP.

The most damning evidence is the statistical improbability of all erroneous voter activity inuring to the benefit of Joe Biden. Granted, there will always be anomalies in elections. But, when they all trend the same way and occur in critical battleground states, then an investigation is warranted and should be demanded. But the most damning point is that none of the mainstream media has aired statistical experts debunking the opposition's claims. If there were skepticism of the methodology or the results, it would have been banner headlines.

And, for those who ask, “why now” do we find massive fraud? I believe that after seeing the progressive media partially cover for Hillary Clinton, it is likely that the Democrats were encouraged and motivated knowing that they could perpetrate a massive fraud this year and count on the mainstream media covering for the Democrats.

Unlikely as it sounds, there is still a glimmer of hope for the man who battled the formidable forces of evil and darkness since the first day of his candidacy. Never, since the days of President Abraham Lincoln, has a man been under such relentless attack.

We are so screwed.

CRIMINALS HAVE THEIR OWN POLITICAL REPRESENTATIVE IN LOS ANGELES: GEORGE GASCÓN

Have you ever wondered why the police are standing outside a store that is being looted?

In California, the answer is simple. It is simply not worth the time and effort to grab a crook.

Due to California Proposition 47 (Reduced Penalties for Some Crimes Initiative), which was placed on the November 4, 2014, ballot by the California State Legislature, the classification of most nonviolent property and drug crimes—including theft and fraud for amounts up to $950—was reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor. Thus, if an individual was caught stealing less than $950, they were simply arrested and released. In some cases, ticketed without arrest.

Ironically, the supporters of this pro-criminal, pro-crime legislation deceptively labeled it as the “The Safe Neighborhood and Schools Act.” Of course, George Soros had his part in funding this pro-criminal proposition.

The measure required misdemeanor sentencing instead of felony for the following crimes:

Shoplifting, where the value of property stolen does not exceed $950

Grand theft, where the value of the stolen property does not exceed $950

Receiving stolen property, where the value of the property does not exceed $950

Forgery, where the value of the forged check, bond or bill does not exceed $950

Fraud, where the value of the fraudulent check, draft or order does not exceed $950

Writing a bad check, where the value of the check does not exceed $950

Personal use of most illegal drugs

According to estimates, the initiative would reduce the state's prison population by 13,000 criminals -- to be released into local California communities. And as an added bonus, 10,000 convicted felons could have their felony convictions downgraded to a misdemeanor.

gascon

One of the driving forces behind this initiative was the then-San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón, who served from 2011 to 2019.

Not so ironically,  Gascón was replaced as the San Francisco District Attorney by Chesa Boudin (2020-present), who was raised by domestic terrorists and former-President Barack Obama’s best friends, Bill Ayres and Bernadine Dohrn, members of the violent and radical communist Weather Underground because his parents, David Gilbert and Kathy Boudin, were in prison for robbery and murder. Their crime, a botched heist of an armored vehicle that left two police officers and a Brink's truck guard dead in a New York suburb.

And now…

George Gascón is about to become the newest Los Angeles District Attorney with 53.81% of the vote to replace current District Attorney Jackie Lacey with 46.19% of the -- vote who has already conceded.

Gascón is a major believer in ignoring recidivism in favor of rehabilitation, especially as it concerns addicts and the mentally ill. No friend of the death penalty, Gascón also believes in limitations when it comes to trying juveniles as adults – especially egregious as many gangs use minors as enforcers knowing that they are less likely to face major incarceration or the death penalty. Amazing, considering his long history in law enforcement, including serving as police chief in San Francisco, Mesa, Arizona, and as an assistant chief in the Los Angeles Police Department.

Look for a surge in local low-level crime as Gascón downplays non-violent (property) crime of the sort that is plaguing San Francisco. It is almost as if the majority of progressive socialist democrats in San Francisco believe low-level, non-violent crime is simply a criminal’s day job that is used to support themselves and their families.

It should come as no surprise that billionaire George Soros and Bay Area philanthropist Patty Quillin combined to put millions of dollars behind Gascón. For those who don’t recognize Quillin’s name, her husband is tech mogul and Netflix CEO Reed Hastings.  It didn’t matter to Los Angeles voters that Lacey was supported by law enforcement unions up and down the state. Likewise, it should come as no surprise that George Soros also funded Boudin’s San Francisco campaign.

Bottom line…

It appears that the Democrat Party and some of its most prominent funders like George Soros are behind much of the criminal activity in this nation.

California, once a state that respected law and order, has turned toward the dark side where criminals are held in higher regard by the politicians than the victims. This is unheard of – unless you are a progressive socialist democrat. The formerly-Golden State that gave us three-strikes now is giving us unsafe communities and civil insurrection.

We are well and truly screwed.

2020 ELECTIONS: WHO CAN YOU TRUST?

It is now Election Day + 7, and both the vote counts and court challenges are ongoing -- with no official President-elect...

The election is not over, and there is nothing to concede to the "move along" mob.

vote-day-after-7

We can no longer trust establishment news sources, no matter which political party is in power…

Perhaps the most important lesson the American public has learned from the 2016-2020 election cycles is that you can trust the mainstream media to give you a narrative instead of the news, the social media platforms censoring that which they do not personally support, and the search engines to interfere with search rankings to further their own censorship.

One can amply illustrate this point with the suppression of the Biden corruption scandal that arose over the discovery of Hunter Biden’s laptop. Whereas the media would report even a hint or wisp of scandal relating to President Trump, including the use of the patently false Steele Dossier, they refused to inform the American public prior to the 2020 election that the latest Democrat candidate for the Presidency might be a national security risk and susceptible to blackmail and extortion without concrete proof.

So it might be helpful to review some of our assumptions and core beliefs…

As we have seen, there are great disparities between data and how it is collected, how data is manipulated into information, and how information is presented as conventional or contrarian actionable wisdom. Two old sayings come readily to mind, both proven true over time.

(1)  Many individuals use information like a drunk uses a lamppost, for support rather than illumination. A prime example being a politicized and progressive Dr. Anthony Fauci dishonestly using cases to justify public policy actions instead of accurately informing the public of the true risks involved with the Covid-19 pandemic. You may wish to read, “Dr. Fauci Told the Truth About COVID-19 Tests in July and Has Been Misleading the Public Ever Since.” It’s not about cases, its about hospitalizations, deaths, and the risk profile of co-morbidities. And, it is not about "the science," but which scientists are presented to reveal "the science."

(2)  You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig. You can spin the news to promote your candidate or denigrate the opposition, but the character of the individuals have been formed over the years and are unlikely to change. Just because you can stand in a garage, that does not make you a car. Somewhat analgous to, a biological man can put on a dress, but that does not make him a biological woman to all of the scientists in the world.

There is some hope…

No matter how the presidential situation plays out, big changes may be unlikely. You cannot easily overcome bureaucratic inertia with good intentions and a PowerPoint plan. Just as locomotives and large ships cannot be stopped on a dime, there is a certain inertia in government that will continue to resist change and slow down any efforts at rapid change. The trajectory of special interests is immutable and will continue to result in the abuse of power, waste of resources, and outright fraud. Some believe that it is unlikely for legislators to openly craft self-serving or toxic legislation in under two years as they fear for their own cushy jobs, replete with political power, prestige, perks, privileges, and above all, profits for themselves and their special interest friends.

What do the political parties even stand for?

In the pre-Obama era, the Democrats were the party of the working people, all about justice, law and order, social change, and a better standard of living for the poor and the minorities. The Republicans were for social restraint, fiscal conservatism, and law and order. Now, both parties are all about gaining and maintaining political power, looting the Treasury, and selecting candidates on their popularity and ability to raise funds. The Democrats no longer represent the middle-class; they represent the outrageously wealthy and the abysmally poor. However, it is hard to consider someone poor with a flat-screen television, a laptop computer, and a mobile phone. And somewhere in transition, the Republicans have come to represent the working man, minorities, and the middle-class lifestyle. While one party appears more patriotic, both serve themselves before being of service to the nation.

Counter-narrative and projection…

Here is an example of counter-narrative and projection from the First Lady whose husband was one of the most corrupt and divisive Presidents in the history of the United States and whose scandal-mired Administration exceeded that of former President Bill Clinton. To believe anything good about this un-American communist is to close your eyes and to enter the world of fantasyland. Look for the Clintonistas and Obamacons to rush back into the government to further infiltrate the bureaucracy with radical progressive socialist democrats before the 2022 congressional election. Remember, the Democrats always point their finger and accuse the GOP of committing the crimes they are committing. Isn't it amazing that the election fraud they blamed for the Hillary Clinton loss is nowhere to be found when it comes to an apparent Trump loss?

obama-m

What can you do?

If there was any benefit to the lockdown and severe restrictions on normal activities, it was that a number of habits were broken in one's personal and professional life. A great opportunity for a reset. A chance to reduce meaningless purchases, the accumulation of stuff that continues to distract us from a better living standard, and relief from worrying about that which we cannot change.

Besides, it taught us more about preparedness and building reserves, emergency management of our resources, and the necessity to diversify our income streams with home-based side-hustles. It also brought education to the forefront as we saw, with our own eyes, the misinformation being fed to our children. It put $350 sneakers and $60,000 per year college programs in perspective.

What might happen?

While nobody can accurately predict the future consistently, we know that the norm is change. We have seen the pandemic did not expose new technologies but merely accelerated the development and deployment of existing trajectories.

Bottom line…

Life goes on. There are blue skies somewhere. And, there are the guilty pleasures in which we indulge ourselves.

2020 ELECTIONS: CONSPIRACY THEORY OR CONSPIRACY FACT?

vote-day-after-6

Welcome to day six, where the count continues, questions of vote integrity abound, and the corrupt progressive mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden…

aalA new wrinkle has hit the internet, with the progressives, once again, pointing to right-wing conspiracy nuts. In a nutshell (pun intended), we are hearing credible people such as former Air Force Lieutenant General Thomas McInerney, and General Mike Flynn’s attorney, Sydney Powell, speak of an NSA contract programmer, Dennis Montgomery, and an NSA vote monitoring/vote alteration system known as Hammer/Scorecard.

According to a number of sources, including the straight-arrow investigative journalist John Solomon, the Department of Justice is involved in the review of the 2020 election. Unfortunately, we have seen the compromise of our nation's premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies and the continuing delay of investigations, obfuscation about investigation reports and results, and the slow-walking of documents legitimately requested by various duly-authorized Congressional Committees. Because an investigation has been announced by the Department of Justice or the Federal Bureau of Investigation, there is no guarantee of integrity in these highly politicized agencies -- especially with a pending change of administration.

The latest ploy, mentioned in yesterday’s blog post

“I also expect Trump to demand a credible and transparent vote -- demanding a digital audit of the voting systems, some of which are provided by non-American (foreign) contractors with proprietary technology that has not been audited. Including the history of vote count resets and transaction entry times. If the vote appears credible, he wishes Biden well and moves to Florida. However, if irregularities are found, and the vote cannot be certified as credible, it becomes an Electoral College issue where the electors could take charge, ignore the popular vote, divide the vote 50-50, and let the chips fall where they may.

With the subversion in the CIA, NSA, DNI, FBI, DOJ... it is not impossible, or even cynical,  to believe in election tampering.

In the media…

Excerpts from  Fox News' Lou Dobbs Tonight...

Dobbs: "We just heard from John Solomon that the FBI indeed is being diligent and is involved, and we all hope he is exactly right. Your thoughts first about the knowledge now that the Justice Department is involved in the review of the election."

Powell: "Well I am delighted to hear that. I think there are any number of things they need to investigate, including the likelihood that three percent of the vote total was changed in the pre-election voting ballots that were collected digitally by using the Hammer program and the software program called Scorecard."

"That would have amounted to a massive change in the vote that would have gone across the country and explains a lot of what we are seeing. In addition, they ran an algorithm to calculate votes they might need to come up with for Mr. Biden in specific areas. I think that explains what happened in Michigan, where the computer glitch resulted in a change of votes of about 55-hundred in favor of President Trump in just one of forty-seven districts."

"All those districts have to be checked for that same quote software glitch endquote that would change the results in Michigan dramatically. Um, the same thing is happening in other states. We've had hundreds of thousands of ballots mysteriously appear solely for Mr. Biden which is statistically impossible as a matter of mathematics. It can all be documented."

"We are putting it into materials that we will file in federal court and we need to seek relief in multiple states to enjoin the certification of any election results."

Fitton: "The President was winning on Tuesday and he is not winning now. And he is not winning now as a result of a process that the voters can't have confidence in, the state legislatures cannot have confidence in, and in my view, the courts cannot have confidence in. The question is will the courts undo what went on? I don't know."

"But the state legislatures in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, perhaps Arizona, perhaps they now have an opportunity to make a stand on behalf of the rule of law. Are they going to endorse what went on this week or are they going to appoint a clean slate of electors that supports President Trump? That could be the next battle and I would think that activists interested in this issue, and if you're concerned watching this, start talking to your state legislators."

[OCS: All of the above states have Republican-controlled legislatures, but unfortunately, the GOP lacks the cojones to take bold, decisive actions, unlike the Democrats.]

"And I would start asking where Congress is. Because Congress in the end is going to be the judge of the Electoral College votes. And if I were in Congress, I'd be telling these states, you'd better be honest here because we're not going to accept your votes if your election is a sham."

Powell's team found 450,000 ballots with a single vote -- Biden -- and no other votes. Suspicious?

A major red flag?

Whenever I see the name Dennis Montgomery, I do not think of his technical brilliance, his characterization as a CIA whistleblower, but his bullshit and possible scam of the NSA and CIA involving wonky software.

Hiding Details of Dubious Deal, U.S. Invokes National Security

By Eric Lichtblau and James Risen (Feb. 19, 2011)

For eight years, government officials turned to Dennis Montgomery, a California computer programmer, for eye-popping technology that he said could catch terrorists. Now, federal officials want nothing to do with him and are going to extraordinary lengths to ensure that his dealings with Washington stay secret.

The Justice Department, which in the last few months has gotten protective orders from two federal judges keeping details of the technology out of court, says it is guarding state secrets that would threaten national security if disclosed. But others involved in the case say that what the government is trying to avoid is public embarrassment over evidence that Mr. Montgomery bamboozled federal officials.

A onetime biomedical technician with a penchant for gambling, Mr. Montgomery is at the center of a tale that features terrorism scares, secret White House briefings, backing from prominent Republicans, backdoor deal-making and fantastic-sounding computer technology.

Interviews with more than two dozen current and former officials and business associates and a review of documents show that Mr. Montgomery and his associates received more than $20 million in government contracts by claiming that software he had developed could help stop Al Qaeda’s next attack on the United States. But the technology appears to have been a hoax, and a series of government agencies, including the Central Intelligence Agency and the Air Force, repeatedly missed the warning signs, the records and interviews show. <Source>

Bottom line…

Given the previously unimaginable behavior of the Obama Administration and the subversion of the nation’s premier intelligence and law enforcement agencies under the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan, the former leadership of the NSA, the former leadership of the Department of Justice, and former FBI Director James Comey – anything is possible and what was widely touted as a right-wing conspiracy theory surrounding the Steele Dossier turned out to be demonstrable left-wing conspiracy fact. Still waiting on those reports that were promised to be delivered in Summer 2020. 

While it is possible that the Republican-controlled legislatures could direct their electors to hand President Trump a victory, the GOP has almost always run away from the battle and hidden in their cushy offices where they accumulate political power, perks, privileges, and above all, profits for themselves, their families, and their special interest friends.

Don’t lose hope – the media asswipes cannot declare a President-elect. We also need to wait for an accurate, highly supervised, re-canvass, and of course, the electoral machinations.

We are so screwed.

2020 ELECTIONS: THE GOOD, BAD, AND THE UGLY

“We the People” are still waiting for a definitive answer to who won the 2020 Presidential election…

The presidential election process is not complete, and President Trump has not conceded the election. The timeline before us: December 14, 2020, electors vote in their respective states for the President of the United States according to their respective state’s election rules; December 23, 2020, when the Certificates of Ascertainment are officially signed are delivered to the appropriate authorities; and January 6, 2021, when the Joint Session of Congress meets to count the electoral votes and declare the election results – provided there are not further congressional complications. When the congressional process is finalized, the results are announced by the Vice President, and the election process is complete. The President will be inaugurated on January 20, 2021.

vote-day-after-5

The GOOD: The mainstream news media neither elects nor selects the President of the United States…

nyt-hdr

Despite unprecedented interference with the 2020 election and the “fake news” that predominated the news cycle, the media's role is limited to reporting the news, not actually naming the United States' next President.

The BAD: We are in uncharted territory, and the Courts are extremely reluctant and resistant to overturning an election, even in the face of demonstrable election fraud. 

Other than ordering recounts and procedural changes, most state supreme courts, the lower federal courts, and the United States Supreme Court are not eager to interfere in an election because, no matter their ruling, the court loses both its credibility and prestige. A classic lose-lose situation. And given Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert’s seeming willingness to flout the Constitution (in the Obamacare case), one cannot be sure that the Supreme Court has the ability to usurp the role of Congress and the state legislatures where such battles should be fought. In any event, the barrier to obtaining an accurate count to invalidate a state’s electoral process is almost overwhelming. However, some state legislatures do not need to follow the popular vote and can instruct their electors on how to vote. Remember, when the Senate was actually the Senate (before the 1913 Seventeenth Amendment), the state legislatures elected Senators, thus completing a series of checks and balances: the House of Representatives represented the people directly, and the Senate represented the State legislatures.

The UGLY: There are any number of miscreants and wing-nuts who do not wish America well and want to create further chaos and turmoil…

About the Trump Accountability Project…

“We should welcome in our fellow Americans with whom we differ politically,” the site says. “But those who took a paycheck from the Trump Administration should not profit from their efforts to tear our democracy apart. The world should never forget those who, when faced with a decision, chose to put their money, their time, and their reputations behind separating children from their families, encouraging racism and anti-Semitism, and negligently causing the unnecessary loss of life and economic devastation from our country's failed response to the COVID-19 pandemic.” <Source>

Can you think of anything more fascist or un-American? Remember, these are the same people who demonized Senator Joseph McCarthy’s list of communists in government, education, and Hollywood.

Who is this “Climate Warrior” bozo?

cv-1

And what does he believe…

cv-2

If this bozo were intellectually honest and able to deal with the facts, perhaps he (zhe) would realize that nuclear energy is clean, efficient, reliable, and cost-effective. In contrast, wind and solar are intermittent, threats to the environment, expensive, and unreliable. And that the opposition to nuclear energy is based on a long-term nuclear demonization by the communists through the peaceniks and environmental movement. And the nuclear horror stories are based on ancient designs that are never to be replicated. As for facts, cold weather does more damage to humans than warm weather, which promotes the growth of life-sustaining plants. To say one has a preference for Africans over Europeans is stunningly racist. It appears that Chris de Villiers is the fascist.

Please save your money; it is unlikely that legal challenges will prevail…

Bottom line…

In the words of Thomas Sowell, "Life does not ask us what we want. It presents us with options."

As I said before: there is no new normal; it is what it is. Protect yourself, your family, your neighbors, and your community. Start participating in local politics and start voting the radicals and extremists out of office. Look for 2022 to be a massive repudiation of the radical policies of the progressive socialist democrats.

But, there is still a small glimmer of hope. President Trump is a fighter and does not give up easily – especially when he considers legal procedures to be just another negotiating ploy. For those who believe that Trump may run in 2024, that is a pipe dream given his age and the media-driven animosity. For those disgusted with the media, drop the subscription, turn the dial, ignore social media. Live is not lived on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and Snapchat. 

What I expect is to see the progressive socialist democrats employ their favorite mantra, "move on," as if history started when you woke up (pun intended) each day and began anew. Promising voting reforms in the future if only we walk away from challenges to the voting today.

I also expect Trump to demand a credible and transparent vote -- demanding a digital audit of the voting systems, some of which are provided by non-American (foreign) contractors with proprietary technology that has not been audited. Including the history of vote count resets and transaction entry times. If the vote appears credible, he wishes Biden well and moves to Florida. However, if irregularities are found, and the vote cannot be certified as credible, it becomes an Electoral College issue where the electors could take charge, ignore the popular vote, divide the vote 50-50, and let the chips fall where they may.
