2020: ELECTION: KEEPING HOPE ALIVE

Welcome to Day + 46, and the battle continues…

vote-day-after-46

Attorney Lin Wood has filed another personal lawsuit in Georgia [VERIFIED COMPLAINT FOR DECLARATORY AND INJUNCTIVE RELIEF] ...

Another lawsuit I am ignoring, primarily because Ramsland is not a court-acceptable expert with subject matter expertise and the forensic report was severely flawed. 

62. Another expert, Russell James Ramsland, Jr., has concluded that Dominion alone was responsible for the injection, or fabrication, of 289,866 illegal votes in Michigan.

63. Indeed, a forensic report dated December 13, 2020 by Allied Security Operations Group audited and tested the integrity of the Dominion Voting System performance in Antrim County, Michigan and concluded that: “the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to created systemic fraud and influence election results. The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trial. This leads to voter or election fraud. Based on our study, we conclude that the Dominion Voting System
should not be used. <Source>

Constitutional Optimism...

There is a class of individuals who are predisposed to optimism. They ignore reality, have little or no feel for the odds or probabilities something can occur, and many of them may believe in conspiracy theories because they sound plausible, and have a grain of truth embedded in the narrative. Among this group of individuals are those who suffer from confirmation bias, the tendency and predisposition to see information and events as a confirmation of one's existing beliefs. In essence, they see what they wish to see.

There is another class of individuals who persist, fighting to bring about their reality, despite the odds or popular opinion, to the end. These individuals often bring about substantial societal change, even if they do not win a particular battle. Which poses an elemental and existential question: How hard are you willing to fight to preserve your country, its Constitution, and your freedoms? Enough to match the efforts of our soldiers, past, present, and future, who are willing to risk life and limb so some simpering liberal can wear a red Che Guevara revolution shirt and use their $1000 iPhone to complain about capitalism and promote the mythical equality of socialism or communism?

So what do we make of the naysayers?

Alternative Pro-Trump Slates of Electors Are a Dead End

Having exhausted all other options, Donald Trump and the die-hard supporters of “Stop the Steal” have settled on the notion of getting Congress to count alternative slates of electors from seven states — Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin — who cast their states’ votes for Trump despite certified popular vote totals showing Trump lost those states.

Senior White House adviser Stephen Miller is among those publicly advocating this strategy.

The “alternative electors” plot is less than meets the eye, as the alternative slates appear to be simply a contingency plan in case Trump is able to prevail in federal court cases between now and then, something he has thus far failed to do.

There are six legal and political reasons why this strategy should and will fail if it is attempted:

  1. Both the Constitution and federal law require electors to be chosen on a date set by Congress for their election. Every state chose to hold a popular vote to choose electors. Electors chosen six weeks later by ad hoc groups of Republican politicians are constitutionally illegitimate if those electors were in no way chosen by the people who voted on Election Day, or as part of an official post-election contest process sanctioned under preexisting state law.

    [OCS: Electors are chosen by the parties and certified by the legislators – electors are not chosen by the voters, although the popular vote may be used to select which slate of legislators will be chosen. And, given that there may be “faithless electors,” who do not follow instructions, one wonders how the popular vote or allegations of fraud will impact their actions?]

  2. None of the “alternative” electors has been appointed by any legitimate organ of state government, while all of the slates of popularly chosen electors have been certified by their respective state governors (or, in the case of D.C., the mayor). Most of the slates openly acknowledge that they will have no legitimacy unless a court rules in their favor.

    [OCS: How “legitimate” is the state government if they acted under unconstitutional modifications to their electoral system, refused to safeguard an election, ignored credible proffered evidence of election irregularities, and refused to investigate and/or remedy errors?]

  3. Every state but Wisconsin settled on electors within the statutory “safe harbor” deadline under the Electoral Count Act of 1887, which under the law is conclusive if there is no other competing state-certified slate.

    [OCS: As we have seen, the law can be anything you want it to be, and the Robert’s Supreme Court has lost all credibility when it comes to dealing with electoral issues. In the final analysis, it is up to Congress, and they can do pretty much as they wish.]

  4. Even if Republicans were to force the issue to a vote and unanimously supported the president, the Democrats still control the House. Under the law, if the House and Senate disagree, the slates of electors certified by each state’s governor are counted.
  5. Even if the Electoral Count Act is, arguably, unconstitutional, it would be up to Congress, not the courts, to decide that — which brings us back to the Democrats controlling the House. We would have a truly major constitutional crisis if the House declared Joe Biden the winner under the law, the Senate rejected the process as unconstitutional, and the Supreme Court refused to decide the question. 

    [OCS Correct me if I am wrong, but the Democrats controlling the House overlooks a simple fact – the House does not vote as individual representatives in this electoral matter, but by delegations, the majority of which are Republican. All it takes to trigger the process is for a challenge to a particular slate of electors to be articulated, agreed to by one Representative and one Senator, followed by two hours of debate, and then a vote based on delegations.]

  6. All of the above assumes that congressional Republicans will be lining up to join this kamikaze attack on the 2020 election, when all indications are that most of them want nothing to do with it.

    [OCS: Many of the squishy Mitt Romney RINO types indeed run like little girls into the arms of the opposition – but others will stand their ground and fight like patriots. This is a defining moment in history, and a major segment of the population may be unforgiving of those crybabies' looking for their Mommies.]

<Source – and to read more>

Discouraging, to say the least! But, consider for a moment the plenary powers of the state legislatures and the Congress. And, considered the lengths to which politicians, their media mouthpieces, and the “suppression” pollsters have beclowned themselves spreading lies and disinformation or withholding legitimate, but negative, information like the verifiable Hunter Biden scandal from the voters. You can no longer trust the government, the politicians. and the media to tell you the truth. They speak in narratives – which can be far different from the truth.

And then there are celebrities and sports figures…

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the Hubris of Self-Destructing Stars

No matter their previous achievements, celebrities deserve legacy-killing backlash when they spread ignorance: "Great success in one field can lead to the delusion that all your thoughts are great."

[OCS: Kareem needs a lesson on constitutional freedoms. Individuals should be allowed to say anything they want without the repressive censorship and career-killing nonsense that the progressive socialist democrats spew forth. However, he is correct about the self-delusion that comes from great success, being surrounded by toadies and leg-humpers, and having your thoughts crafted by image-makers. Living in a bubble and isolated from the consequences of your pronouncements produces an odd viewpoint that may not comport with everyday American values or even reality.]

The only thing people enjoy more than watching a celebrity's rocketing ascent to international fame is watching an aging celebrity's flaming plummet to the hard, cold ground of disgrace and obscurity. It is both a warning against hubris — believing you're too famous to fall — and a reminder that the same people who made you popular can turn on you.

[OCS: Yes, the trolls can use social media to apply pressure to those who control the media or career opportunities.]

Social media companies have begun slapping warnings on some messages that are false, incite violence or cause harm to society. But this needs to be done with more consistency and vigilance. Studies indicate that when readers see these warnings, they are less likely to read or believe things. However, as another study showed, there can be a backfire effect in which content that isn't flagged, even when inaccurate, is perceived as true.

[OCS: This is where Kareem goes off the deep end. He advocates interventional censorship without explaining how those who censor or comment actually are qualified to make such determinations and pronouncements or take such actions.

Consider science. Science, itself is a controlled, skeptical view of phenomena occurring within our universe. It is a scientific fact that, depending on your frame of reference, the observation of the exact same event can produce different manifestations that allow sincere people to have differing conclusions and viewpoints. But what social media monitor is even qualified to state which viewpoint may be correct? Ask Galileo about fighting against those who consider the consensus view of the fashionable science of the day to be unassailable, incontrovertible, and any other viewpoint should be treated as a heresy that necessitates the punishment of the individual with a different viewpoint.

Only by allowing differing opinions to be expressed do we weigh alternatives, make risk judgments, and come to conclusions which we can successfully apply to our own lives. You are the only one that can provide an acceptable context to what you are consuming.

Hollywood lives in a world of perceptions, most manufactured by spinmeisters – to allow their carefully crafted narratives to be promoted as the true and correct reality is basically unconstitutional.]

Many Americans imbue stars with political and social intelligence they just don't have. Great success in one field can lead to the delusion that all your thoughts are great. It doesn't help to be surrounded by fawning people whose job it is to agree with everything you say. The irresponsibility of tweeting irrational and harmful opinions to millions, regardless of the damaging consequences to their country or people's lives, proves that those stars deserve the harsh backlash. Unfortunately, the long-term result may be that their professional legacies could become brief footnotes to the memory of their collection of mason jars filled with their excreted opinions.

<Source>

Most of what Kareem Abdul-Jabbar says about celebrities and others is absolutely correct – even if they truly believe their own bullshit. But to suppress the non-fashionable opinions of others is both morally reprehensible and indefensible. By looking and listening to fools, you can form your own opinion. To the extent, you risk your own credibility, reputation, and legacy on what you are promoting is your own business.

Genetics gave Kareem Abdul-Jabbar 80% of his physical prowess, 20% was motivation, training, and hard work -- but nobody granted him the wisdom or moral authority to impose his viewpoint on others. Perhaps if he understood that freedom means doing your own thing unmolested by government, do-gooders, those that would censor you, and multi-millionaire star athletes who are surrounded by fawning sycophants, the world would be a better place.

Just asking: another Democrat misdirection away from election irregularities?

I see these Drudge Report headlines and wonder if this is a misdirection ploy to divert attention away from the election scandal? And, since the Trump/Russia collusion hoax was a misdirection ploy away from the Hillary Clinton-Barack Obama email scandal, why not do it again? Like the alleged DNC hack, was this even a hack, or was it a system compromise by some embedded  insider with the "keys to the kingdom?" 

HackBottom line…

By the way, all of those statistical analysis efforts based on the assumption that Biden couldn't possibly get more votes than Hillary or Barack Obama are flawed. The assumption is flawed because it could be massive fraud or it could be that the media drove hatred of Trump to a record high during the previous three years or the Democrats worked harder in specific areas. I personally like Dilbert creator Scott Adams' take --" the election system is designed in such a way that guarantees massive fraud, so much so, that you do not need to observe it to know it is there." And, if you do not believe that the election software couldn't be hacked -- check the above headlines.

We are screwed, but the fight goes on.

2020 ELECTION: SHUT UP SIDNEY

Welcome to Day + 45…

vote-day-after-45

Dominion Voting Systems, through its attorneys at Clare Lock, has sent a “demand letter” to Sidney Powell that is headed “Defamatory Falsehoods About Dominion.”

“We represent US Dominion Inc . and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Dominion Voting Systems, Inc. and Dominion Voting Systems Corporation (collectively, "Dominion"). We write regarding your wild, knowingly baseless, and false accusations about Dominion, which you made on behalf of the Trump Campaign as part of a coordinated media circus and fundraising scheme featuring your November 19 press conference in Washington, D.C. and including your "Stop the Steal" rally and numerous television and radio appearances on-and statements to-Fox News, Fox Business, Newsmax, and the Rush Limbaugh Radio Show, among others.”

“Given the sheer volume and ever-expanding set of lies that you have told and are continuing to tell about Dominion as part of your multi-media disinformation "Kraken" fundraising campaign, it would be impractical to address every one of your falsehoods in this letter. Without conceding the truth of any of your claims about Dominion, we write to demand that you retract your most serious false accusations, which have put Dominion's employees' lives at risk and caused enormous harm to the company.”

What follows is a number of specific allegations that Dominion believes are false and may be defamatory, along with a request to preserve documents for any future legal action. Noting that Dominion is not named in any legal action brought by Powell or her associates, and the nature of the claims of foreign interference and what appears to be a deficient and redacted forensic audit lacking personnel qualifications and methodological specificity, perhaps it would be best if the case for congressional action is made by more credible, professional, and polished advocates.

There is but one chance to convince Members of Congress to dispute the electoral results, and presenting half-baked theories, supposition, and speculation that can be easily debunked could destroy any chance of a Trump victory. With nineteen days between now and the January 6th meeting of Congress, only solid, verifiable information should be presented. Leaving the rest for the inevitable after-inauguration lawsuits.

Maximum attention needs to be given to the two Senate run-off seats in Georgia, including preventing the craziness that occurred in the General election. While I know that many professionals are reluctant to work for President Trump under the present circumstances, there is still work to be done at the polls and tabulation centers. Volunteer if you are in Georgia.

A more balanced report…

A December report titled “The Immaculate Deception: Six Key Dimensions of Election Irregularities” produced by Peter Navarro, acting as a private citizen and not the director of the White House Office for Trade and Manufacturing Policy, concludes that the integrity of the 2020 election and that the allegations of irregularities are serious enough to warrant an urgent probe and substantial enough to overturn the results. Navarro asserts, “If these election irregularities are not fully investigated before Inauguration Day and thereby effectively allowed to stand, this nation runs the genuine risk of never being able to have a fair presidential election again.

“This report assesses the fairness and integrity of the 2020 Presidential Election by examining six dimensions of alleged election irregularities across six key battleground states. Evidence used to conduct this assessment includes more than 50 lawsuits and judicial rulings, thousands of affidavits and declarations, testimony in a variety of state venues, published analyses by think tanks and legal centers, videos and photos, public comments, and extensive press coverage.”

“From the findings of this report, it is possible to infer what may well have been a coordinated strategy to effectively stack the election deck against the Trump-Pence ticket. Indeed, the observed patterns of election irregularities are so consistent across the six battleground states that they suggest a coordinated strategy to, if not steal the election outright, strategically game the election process in such a way as to ‘stuff the ballot box’ and unfairly tilt the playing field in favor of the Biden-Harris ticket.”

“The matrix below indicates that significant irregularities occurred across all six battleground states and across all six dimensions of election irregularities. This finding lends credence to the claim that the election may well have been stolen from President Donald J. Trump.”

The Immaculate Deception: Six Key Dimensions of Election Irregularities report.

The Immaculate Deception video presentation.

For those wishing to track the official 2020 Electoral College Results and filings, they can be found on the National Archives’ web-page.

Bottom line…

Amazingly, the same media moguls and tech tyrants that couldn’t find any evidence about the existence of the Hunter Biden laptop that was worthy of reporting prior to the election are the very same people claiming to see no evidence of election irregularities. First, claiming there was no fraud. Then, there was no widespread fraud. And now, the mantra is that while there may have been “some” fraud in “some” of the states, it wasn’t enough to justify overturning an election.

Not so coincidently, the same people who, for almost four years, were positive that candidate Trump, and then President Trump, colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election. And now, no headlines on the Chinese Spy that compromised House Intelligence member Eric Swalwell or the influence of Chinese money on the elections – or the deep connections between the media moguls who are selling entertainment in the Chinese market or the tech tyrants using Chinese slave labor to build their products. Representative Swalwell pointed his finger at President Trump screaming "Russian Agent" for three-plus years while being compromised by a Chinese intelligence agent. 

It's no wonder that the American public has been conditioned to think “Russia” when the word “Communism” is used. However, China is a larger and more formidable threat to our nation and freedom. The idea that our representatives are about to place a Communist China-compromised Joe Biden into a position where he can’t remember to keep his mouth shut about secret information is an existential threat to our national security, as is the China-friendly radicals who openly embrace totalitarianism and will become members of his cabinet. Another reason we have to hold the Senate and guard the confirmation process.

It is up to us to call our representatives and remind them that they are likely to lose their jobs in 2022 and, even worse, be branded as a “cooperator” for the rest of their lives if they don't stand up for America and the Constitution. If we have learned anything in the past few years, it's that a relatively few vocal people have an outsized impact on the scared rabbits that govern us.

We are so screwed.

2020 ELECTION: SOMEONE IS LYING

Welcome to Day +44…

Vote-day-after-44About that electoral challenge in Congress…

Pre-Selected Republican electors in seven states, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico, met and cast alternative slates of electors and voted for President Donald Trump on December 14th, as the certified Democrat electors in the respective states cast electoral votes for former Vice President Joe Biden. The Republican electors in Michigan were locked out of the capitol building on the orders of the Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

Even though the mainstream media is characterizing this action as extreme and unprecedented, the same maneuver was deployed by the Democrats in Hawaii (1960) when they cast an alternative set of votes for John F. Kennedy after the state’s governor certified the electors for Richard Nixon. Of course, the tech tyrants maintain the blackout on election news, so the American public is being kept in the dark.

This is a last-ditch effort by the Republicans to save America and has an extremely low probability of succeeding. Especially when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has China connections of his own, urges fellow Senators to accept Joe Biden as the President-elect.

“Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, congratulated President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. and pleaded with Republicans privately not to join an effort by House members to throw out the results.

“Many of us hoped that the presidential election would yield a different result, but our system of government has processes to determine who will be sworn in on Jan. 20,” Mr. McConnell said in a speech on the Senate floor. “The Electoral College has spoken. So today, I want to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden.”

A short time later, on a private call with Senate Republicans, Mr. McConnell and his top deputies pleaded with their colleagues not to join members of the House in objecting to the election results on Jan. 6, when Congress meets to ratify the Electoral College’s decision, according to three people familiar with the conversation, who described it on the condition of anonymity.” <Source>

Another example of the Republican’s pattern and practice of avoiding the fight to save America to save their own positions, prestige, power, perks, privileges, and profits.

Chinese corruption everywhere you look?

Let us not forget that the Senate Majority Leader's wife's family are making hundreds of millions in a shipping venture with the Chinese Communists. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband as well as Diane Feinstein's husband have significant investments in China. No wonder they support Joe Biden and give lip-service to Donald Trump who is challenging the Chinese on every front.

The Michigan election in Antrim County: someone is lying…

Testimony of the President of Dominion Voting Systems, John Poulos, testifying (under oath) before Michigan’s Senate Oversight Committee

POULOS
(If the video is missing, it can be found here.)

Prepared Opening Statement

In response to a question from Senator Ed McBroom, "Is it correct to state that the error that occurred in the unofficial results didn't occur at the tabulators but occurred when the information was taken to the centralized location and uploaded off of the memory cards that were in the tabulators? Is that correct?"

Poulos replied, "Dominion did not support Antrim County. We did not program their election. We don't have a copy of their database. We don't have any copies of what happened there."


Some basic points responding to Allied Security Operations Group's "Antrim Michigan Forensics Report - REVISED PRELIMINARY SUMMARY, v2 - Report Date 12/13/2020."

Antrim County (and all of Michigan) has a paper ballot record for every vote cast on a Dominion machine.

Voters make, review, and cast their paper ballots. These paper ballots are in full custody of the election officials of each county. The proof of the accuracy of tabulation machines can be verified by hand counts and audits.

There was no digital adjudication of votes in Antrim County.

Antrim County does not license nor use digital adjudication. To the extent Antrim County needed to resolve any absentee ballots, it was done manually—by hand—outside the tabulation system.

Digital adjudication requires the use of ballot images. Antrim County does not record images.

Antrim County does not use modems.

While the State of Michigan requires all tabulation systems to be capable of transmitting election results from the precincts via modems, Antrim County does not use modems.

If modems are ever used, they are external on Dominion machines so that poll workers and poll watchers can easily identify when they are in use.

Dominion results servers are designed to not be connected to the internet.

Antrim County does not use Rank Choice Voting.

A simple review of the ballots easily confirms this, as there is only one marking area beside each candidate. Any EAC accredited VSTL could also verify this through source code and database review.

<Source: Dec 16, 2020 | Dominion Statement on Antrim County Report

After reviewing all documents, it appears that any fraud, if there was a fraud, most likely lies with election officials who control Michigan's electoral process and most likely would have been perpetrated by the use of counterfeit ballots, ballots recorded multiple times, or the manual manipulation of tally data after the fact outside of Dominion systems.

If there was any hanky-panky, it may have occurred at the centralized location or before the compact flash cards were entered (or, in some cases, not entered). The software at the central location was supplied by Dominion.

Poulos’ testimony directly contradicts information contained in the partisan-produced preliminary audit report. One wonders why the Secretary of State refuses to allow the original ballots -- now de-identified with the separation of the outer envelope containing the address and signature data -- to be examined by a neutral Special Master appointed by the Court or a bi-partisan committee or re-processed with witnesses present?

The most significant concerns are the high error rate seen in ballot processing, necessitating adjudication and requiring the ballot to be manually or digitally changed, corrected, replaced, or rejected before re-processing and tabulation, or the error process that allows a batch to be rejected and reprocessed; and the ability to delete or change information on the compact flash cards using any laptop without detection.  However, when processing ballots at the tabulator, if the previous batch is not deleted before re-entry, some votes may be double (or more) counted. 

Waiting for more definitive information.

Just asking… Who or what might be threatening the Supreme Court?

We have seen that premier U.S. intelligence, law enforcement, and regulatory agencies apparently have no problem coercing targets into taking actions against their self-interests and constitutional rights by threatening members of their family, gangster-style.

Could this same force be used by foreign bad actors or even our own political parties or government agencies against individual politicians, Members of Congress, and the Judiciary?

It is not a conspiracy theory, or beyond the realm of possibility, when you consider that members of the Obama Administration conspired (there is no other word for their actions) to destroy the personal life and professional reputation and career of a famous person with a record of distinguished service to the United States.

Yes, I am speaking about Lt. General Michael Flynn, a man with a high-profile distinguished reputation as a retired Army lieutenant general, 8th director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, and served as the 25th United States National Security Advisor for the first 22 days of the Trump Administration.

As has been revealed by government documents reluctantly filed with the court, there was no good-faith basis or rationale for an investigation or prosecution of General Flynn. There was no discussion of the matter addressed in the charges, Flynn did not lie to FBI investigators who clearly set him up by deliberate trickery, and even the investigators did not believe he was lying.

The government did, with knowledge and intent, withheld exculpatory information that must be provided to a defendant to conceal their own criminal actions in spying on Americans and other illegal acts. We later found out that they coerced his confession to a crime that never happened by threatening to indict and prosecute his son, whose wife had just delivered a baby. Even worse were the "secret agreements" to keep the knowledge of this deal away from submission to the court.

And, someone should explain how a previously-respected  Judge, with a history of holding the government publicly accountable for their bad acts, prosecutorial misconduct, and misapplication of the law, suddenly went off the deep end and violated long-held legal procedures. Taking extra-judicial action to pursue General Flynn beyond the bounds of his judicial authority -- even after being rebuked by an Appellate Court.

Could this be another conspiracy theory – or will we find out years later, the conspiracy was not a theory but a fact?

Bottom line…

The simple fact is that Donald Trump would have been re-elected if key states did not unconstitutionally alter their election requirements and the United States Supreme Court upheld their sworn oath to protect and defend the Constitution.

There is so much wrong, so much chaos, and so many people profiting from the turmoil – that I must ask: Do they really want to fix a broken system that will affect their power and profits?

We are so screwed.

2020 ELECTION: CREDIBILITY OF AUDIT IS BASED ON THE CREDIBILITY OF THE AUDITORS

Welcome to Day + 43 and the last gasp of hope…

vote-day-after-43

It appears that the chattering classes are faced with the improbability of a congressional challenge to electoral vote certifications and challenges to the seating of specific electors during the January 6th joint session of Congress.

The process is well-defined, but the outcome is uncertain even though some Republican “electors” who cast alternate votes were not authorized by any state official and do not have any legal status or standing. Vice President Pence, acting as the head of the Senate, does not have the authority to decide which electors are valid. It is also unknown what would happen if a Representative and a Senator from the State in question would rise to issue a challenge.  

Although Democrat electors in the states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Nevada are casting their votes for Joe Biden, slates of Republican electors in those states cast votes for President Trump just in case legal challenges succeed. The Governor of Georgia used State Police to lock GOP representatives out of the capitol.

Speculation and punditry continue.

Housekeeping: One reader asked why I appeared to be so dismissive of the Antrim County “Forensic Audit” …

“After reading the 23-pages of the so-called preliminary forensics audit report, with redactions of unknown material, and which contained extraneous information relating to the ownership of Dominion and its relation to foreign actors, I am not impressed. I was expecting the petitioner to use a well-known group of security experts with serious election system design and integrity issues.” <Source>

First, I can find no credible references for the auditing company in regards to previous cyber-security engagements. Second, the firm's major principals appear to be partisan businessmen without any credentials that would lend credibility to their ability to conduct a valid forensic audit of a voting system. Third, there are unexplained redactions in the report. And fourth and foremost, this document would probably not be allowed in court during a challenge related to third-party expert testimony.

In a motion to exclude the testimony of the firm’s co-owner and spokesperson, Russell James Ramsland, Jr. (Case 1:20-cv-04809-TCB Document 60 Filed 12/05/20), we can see others have come to the same conclusion. Especially the sufficiency, particularity, and specificity of the preliminary report; “Instead, Ramsland appears to be parroting analyses from other unidentified individuals who claim to possess expertise that he does not. This alone is more than sufficient to exclude his report.”

ramsland

While I am skeptical of the potential for mass fraud in the “adjudication” process, I do not see where anyone examined original ballot images and reviewed them against the original documents or adjudication logs. I suggest you download the forensics audit report itself and the court filing using the above links and judge for yourself. While I would like to believe the findings, there is no way that this report should be publicized or accepted without scrutiny.

What we have learned in 2020…

ABOVE-THE-LAY

Bottom line…

I cannot believe the Democrats continue to spew bald-faced lies, knowing that the media will cover their asses, just as I cannot believe that anyone would deliberately create a software system that was defective by design.

The battle goes on as the GOP capitulates on a number of fronts.

We are so screwed.

2020 ELECTION: YESTERDAY WAS YUGE

Welcome to Day + 42 and uncharted waters with numerous hidden shoals that can cripple or sink the U.S. Ship of State…

Vote-day-after-42It is unlikely (improbable) that the Courts. Legislatures, or the Congress on January 6, 2021, is willing to challenge a U.S. election, no matter how corrupt it may seem. It takes one Representative and one Senator in each of the disputed states to challenge the electoral results. It appears that the Michigan Governor used State Troopers to block GOP electors from meeting to send an alternate slate of electors to the Archivist as did other states. 

Yesterday was YUGE!

Joseph Biden formally became the President-elect of the United States, and Kamala Harris, the Vice President-elect…

p-elect

Electoral College makes it official: Biden won, Trump lost

"The Electoral College formally chose Joe Biden on Monday as the nation’s next president, giving him a solid electoral majority of 306 votes and confirming his victory in last month’s election. The state-by-state voting took on added importance this year because of President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede he had lost." <Source>

With 270 votes needed to win the presidency, Joe Biden received 306 electoral votes while Donald Trump received 232 electoral votes. The official count of the electoral ballots will be conducted on Jan. 6 in a joint session in Congress.

President Trump’s chances to remain in office now rest with the Congressional acceptance of the Electoral vote without challenge in a theoretical exercise with such low probability as to approach “non-existent.”

The United States Attorney General announces his resignation, effective December 23, 2020…

Attorney General William Barr is resigning from the Justice Department, effective December 23rd, with a pleasant laudatory letter to President Trump. The President reacted via Twitter.

Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen will become Acting Attorney General after Barr departs on December 23, 2020, and Richard Donoghue will become Deputy Attorney General.

From the viewpoint of an outside observer, it appears that AG Barr was tired of the Trump attacks on his ineffectiveness to protect a president, much like Bobby Kennedy protected JFK and Eric Holder protected Obama. Witness the complaints that Durham did not issue even a preliminary report before the election, Barr failed to inform the public of the two investigations of Hunter Biden before the election, and worst of all, Barr’s statement that his people haven’t found convincing evidence of election fraud that would be sufficient to alter the outcome of the election. We do not know if Barr reacted to some other scheme by the President to release information on his own or other egregious act that would warrant his resignation.

A strategic lesson on relying on tech tyrants and “single point of failure” systems to run your personal and professional life…

GOOGLE-OUTAGE

Those “pink dots” indicate a massive outage affecting major services on the Google platform. Whether by intent or accident, this is an example of how your life and income can be disrupted and/or destroyed by an unjustified reliance on internet connectivity and third-party proprietary tools.

It should also be noted that there is no recourse for your losses of time or money built-in to the unilateral “take it or leave it” terms of services agreements.

The best practices are to have your critical data backed-up and under your control. As for critical functions such as discovering your company, products, or services using a search engine, you are at the mercy of an unknown algorithm and possibly malignant actors within the vendor or their outside contractors. A clear and present danger of being held hostage to tech tyrants with all of their quirks and foibles.

And it is not just the productivity programs, but it could also affect devices that use these services, the so-called IoT (Internet of Things).

Gmail, YouTube, Google Docs, and other Google services hit by massive outage

Multiple Google services and websites including YouTube, Gmail, Google Assistant, and Google Docs were down for around an hour on Monday morning after being hit with a widespread outage. Google acknowledged the issues with Gmail, affecting both its business and personal services, at 6:55AM ET, and said the problem was fixed for the “vast majority” of users at 7:52AM ET. Identical notices were posted across the status pages for the rest of Google’s services.

The world’s dependence on Google services led to a truly staggering number of reports on DownDetector, with the number of reported YouTube problems peaking at over 100,000. Some users found YouTube was still functional if they visited it in an incognito browser without signing in. Google Workspace apps like Docs and Meet were also down.

Users also reported that smart home gadgets integrated with Google Assistant were experiencing issues. We verified that a Nest Hub smart display was unable to control a connected smart heater, for example.

Third-party apps and services that rely on Google’s back end services, like Pokémon Go, were also hit by problems.

The outage was worldwide. We verified that services experienced issues in the US, UK, Netherlands, and Japan, and DownDetector’s outage reports spanned the globe.” <Source>

Many users Tweeted that their “smart house had become stupid” or that “connecting all my lights to the Google hub feels like a fatal error.” RT (Russia Times – a Russian propaganda network) even highlighted the story – perhaps as a warning of what might happen in the future?

Forget the tech tyrants; consider the effect of state-sponsored hackers or other bad actors, some with physical access and the “keys to the kingdom” to our critical infrastructure…

A data leak shows that over two million Chinese Communist Party members were secretly embedded in organizations around the world including India

“In a explosive data leak, around two million Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members who got secretly embedded in some of the world's biggest companies, banks, media groups, universities and government agencies, have been exposed.
'The Australian' newspaper obtained the leaked database which apart from the names of around two million CCP members, has their party position, birth-date, national ID number and ethnicity.
Among the companies mentioned in the list are manufacturers such as Boeing and Volkswagen, pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer and AstraZeneca, and banks like ANZ and HSBC. As per the documents, around 600 people at HSBC, Standard Chartered banks are CCP members.” <Source>

And then there was the release of a "forensic audit" conducted by a third-party company whose principal is a partisan politician and executive...

After reading the 23-pages of the so-called forensic audit report, with redactions of unknown material, and which contained extraneous information relating to the ownership of Dominion and its relation to foreign actors, I am not impressed. I was expecting the petitioner to use a well-known group of security experts with serious election system design and integrity issues. Without further information on the examiners and a more detailed report, I consider this effort to be little more than a cursory look at the information in order to seek judicial approval of a wider -- including operational -- exam of the equipment and a code review of the numerous updates applied to the system some after the election in violation of existing regulations. That the state's election officials have a vested interest in covering-up their own malfeasance, misfeasance, or nonfeasance is obvious.

There are other science-based solutions like the ones described by IT expert Jovan Hutton Pulitzer, who patented QR scanning devices, who may have the technology that may easily scan through all the physical mail-in ballots, compare with the captured images to look for inconsistencies and forgeries. Absolute proof from absolute science? Want to see more? Check out the video.

 

Bottom line…

This is not a confluence of bad luck or even bad news. It may be the precursor to the removal of Joe Biden from office, voluntarily or involuntarily using the 25th Amendment. Our enemies appear poised to strike while America stands divided against itself, infiltrated by enemies and professional activist/agitators (aka “community organizers”), and led by an ineffective, corrupt, or compromised cadre of progressive communist individuals.

To say we are screwed is an understatement.

ELECTION 2020: TIME IS GROWING SHORT BUT THE FUNDRAISING CONTINUES

Welcome to Day + 41…

vote-day-after-41

The fundraising pitches are now ignoring today’s (December 14th) votes by electors in their respective states as they look forward to the December 23rd deadline when the “certificates of electoral vote results” must be delivered to the appropriate parties. As if the Courts, which now seem reluctant to intervene, or the state legislatures will somehow pull a live rabbit out of the hat.

What it is beginning to feel like…

Money-handThere is little doubt in my mind that, short of an honest miracle, that Joseph Biden will become the President of the United States on January 20, 2021. There is little doubt that the deep-state has the motivation to declare him a potential national security risk or guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors that demands Congressional action and the specter of a President Kamala Harris.

The clumsy filings of flawed and misleading lawsuits do not help.

Sidney Powell’s secret ‘military intelligence expert,’ key to fraud claims in election lawsuits, never worked in military intelligence

The witness is code-named “Spyder.” Or sometimes “Spider.” His identity is so closely guarded that lawyer Sidney Powell has sought to keep it even from opposing counsel. And his account of vulnerability to international sabotage is a key part of Powell’s failing multistate effort to invalidate President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

Powell describes Spyder in court filings as a former “Military Intelligence expert,” and his testimony is offered to support one of her central claims. In a declaration filed in four states, Spyder alleges that publicly available data about server traffic shows that voting systems in the United States were “certainly compromised by rogue actors, such as Iran and China.”

Spyder, it turns out, is Joshua Merritt, a 43-year-old information technology consultant in the Dallas area. Merritt confirmed his role as Powell’s secret witness in phone interviews this week with The Washington Post.

Records show that Merritt is an Army veteran and that he enrolled in a training program at the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion, the unit he cites in his declaration. But he never completed the entry-level training course, according to Meredith Mingledorff, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence, which includes the battalion.

“He kept washing out of courses,” said Mingledorff, citing his education records. “He’s not an intelligence analyst.” <Source>

I do not doubt that lawsuits seeking to correct procedural flaws and constitutional shortcomings will continue. But they will not help President Donald Trump.

However, other than the claim of hacked voting machines, the Powell claim I want to most see verified is the existence of several warehouses around the country with counterfeit ballots that could be trucked to where they were needed to backfill the ballots created out of thin air by the hacked machines. Surely, there are warehouse records, sample ballots, and enough people engaged in the alleged conspiracy to have that information leak as whistleblowers seek to protect themselves from prosecution.

Even more disturbing…

I believe that the GOP is not paying sufficient attention to the Georgia run-off election and the necessity to retain a slim Senate majority, even knowing that squishy RINOs like Mitt Romney and Susan Collins can destroy the GOP’s razor-thin margin and vote with the progressive opposition.

I am also concerned with the continuing rallies that are distracting from the upcoming fight to preserve our constitutional republic. Every fight between the “Proud Boys” and Black Lives Matter misdirects the publics' attention to meaningless trivial matters – as does “unofficial” spokespersons like conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

What now…

If you closely observe the pattern and practice of the progressive socialist democrats, it becomes apparent that there are media moguls and tech tyrants, along with establishment deep=state operatives who are setting the stage for the removal of a President Biden, the coronation of President Harris, and the presidential nomination of a new Vice President that must be confirmed by both chambers of Congress.

(1)  The media is beginning to buzz about the seeming frailty of Diane Feinstein, but remain quiet about Joe Biden.

Dianne Feinstein’s Missteps Raise a Painful Age Question Among Senate Democrats

“But many others familiar with Feinstein’s situation describe her as seriously struggling, and say it has been evident for several years. Speaking on background, and with respect for her accomplished career, they say her short-term memory has grown so poor that she often forgets she has been briefed on a topic, accusing her staff of failing to do so just after they have. They describe Feinstein as forgetting what she has said and getting upset when she can’t keep up. One aide to another senator described what he called a “Kabuki” meeting in which Feinstein’s staff tried to steer her through a proposed piece of legislation that she protested was “just words” which “make no sense.” Feinstein’s staff has said that sometimes she seems herself, and other times unreachable. “The staff is in such a bad position,” a former Senate aide who still has business in Congress said. “They have to defend her and make her seem normal.” <Source: New Yorker?

(2)  The media that studiously ignored the Hunter Biden laptop scandal, the close associations with Communist Chinese spies, and Joe Biden’s involvement in his son’s business are starting to cover the matter as they should have before the 2020 election.

Federal criminal investigation into Hunter Biden focuses on his business dealings in China

Now that the election is over, the investigation is entering a new phase. Federal prosecutors in Delaware, working with the IRS Criminal Investigation agency and the FBI, are taking overt steps such as issuing subpoenas and seeking interviews, the person with knowledge said.

Activity in the investigation had gone covert in recent months due to Justice Department guidelines prohibiting overt actions that could affect an election, the person said.

CNN contacted Biden's attorney and the campaign this week seeking comment about the investigation. On Wednesday, they released a statement acknowledging the probe.

"I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs. I take this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors," Hunter Biden said in a statement.

Investigators have been examining multiple financial issues, including whether Hunter Biden and his associates violated tax and money laundering laws in business dealings in foreign countries, principally China, according to two people briefed on the probe.

Some of those transactions involved people who the FBI believe sparked counterintelligence concerns, a common issue when dealing with Chinese business, according to another source. <Source: CNN>

(3)  The media moguls, tech tyrants, and the establishment deep-state are starting to be concerned with Communist China domestic spying, especially after determining that California Representative Eric Swalwell, who now sits on the House Intelligence Committee, had a relationship with a Chinese spy.

Exclusive: Suspected Chinese spy targeted California politicians

A suspected Chinese intelligence operative developed extensive ties with local and national politicians, including a U.S. congressman, in what U.S. officials believe was a political intelligence operation run by China’s main civilian spy agency between 2011 and 2015, Axios found in a yearlong investigation.

Among the most significant targets of Fang's efforts was Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.).

  • Fang took part in fundraising activity for Swalwell’s 2014 re-election campaign, according to a Bay Area political operative and a current U.S. intelligence official. Swalwell’s office was directly aware of these activities on its behalf, the political operative said. That same political operative, who witnessed Fang fundraising on Swalwell's behalf, found no evidence of illegal contributions.
  • Federal Election Commission records don’t indicate Fang herself made donations, which are prohibited from foreign nationals.
  • Fang helped place at least one intern in Swalwell's office, according to those same two people, and interacted with Swalwell at multiple events over the course of several years.<Source: Axios>

Put together with months of the GOP’s attention with Joe Biden’s noticeable cogitative decline and his connections with the Chinese Communists, it is not a stretch for someone to tell Biden, possibly after three months in office, that it is just too divisive and upsetting to the American public. He needs to step aside for the sake of the Country – possibly citing the health reasons he jokes about.

And then there is Russia – a convenient scapegoat if massive Democrat election fraud comes to light…

U.S. Agencies Hacked in Foreign Cyber Espionage Campaign Linked to Russia

Russia’s foreign intelligence service is suspected of being behind effort to breach government networks

Multiple federal government agencies, including the U.S. Treasury and Commerce departments, have had some of their computer systems breached as part of a widespread global cyber espionage campaign believed to be the work of the Russian government, according to officials and people familiar with the matter.

Russia’s foreign-intelligence service is suspected of being behind the hacks of the U.S. government networks—in which some internal communications are believed to have been stolen—and the operation is related to a cyber breach disclosed last week of U.S.-based cybersecurity firm FireEye, one of the people familiar with the matter said.

The person added that several government agencies in total have likely been compromised.

The hacking operation exposed as many as hundreds of thousands of government and corporate networks to potential risk and alarmed national-security officials in the Trump administration as well as executives at FireEye, some of whom view it as far more significant than a routine case of foreign cyber espionage, people familiar with the matter said. <Source>

Bottom line…

Our nation is about to swirl down the toilet, and the progressive socialist democrats have their corrupt hands on the lever. The scariest thing is that our media moguls, tech tyrants, and major corporations have made so much money from China and have interests so intertwined with the Communist Chinese government, that they are unwilling to fight for America. The same could be said about the Democrat Party.

Consider that some of our largest companies such as Apple and Nike have lobbyists trying to kill a bill that bans the importation of goods made by slave labor. Or companies willing to sell technological tools to help the Communists track, control, and punish dissidents -- imprisoning or executing them.

But what should scare the bejesus out of all Americans is that while we are distracted by the self-generated nonsense, our enemies grow stronger until, one day, we look up and see them looming over us.

We are so screwed.

2020 ELECTION: ADAM "PIECE OF" SCHIFF EDITION

Welcome to Day + 40 … The low probability “Hail Mary” play from Texas appears to have failed, but the fight goes on…

vote-day-after-40

The United States Supreme Court made the right decision...

Before anyone jumps up-and-down about the Supreme Court's failure to consider the Texas lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, consider the implications of a lawsuit that allows one state to sue other states over their voting standards.

What happens if one state has strict voter identification laws and another state brings legal action because that may disenfranchise seniors, the poor, minorities, and people of color, upsets the election, and disadvantages their party?. Or a state gerrymanders its districts to provide a distribution that leads to a predictable outcome that produces results that disadvantages another state? 

The only solution would be to federalize election protocols, thus depriving individuals and states of their constitutional rights. The only winners would be the trial lawyers and think tanks that crank out whitepapers like candy. 

Wisconsin Supreme Court Oral Arguments...

Other than Justice Jill Karofsky's statement that selecting two large minority counties to bring suit is somehow racist, which I find obnoxious and unsupported, the matter was purely and boringly procedural and it appears that the Justice's concentrated on why these procedural issues were not raised in prior elections. The liberals expressed disdain, the conservatives gave some support for part of the claims that the rules and regulations should be followed, but it is unlikely that Trump will prevail in this unusual Saturday hearing. The idea that the electoral procedures presume election fraud and irregularities and set out to prevent it with specific procedures seems to have little sway with the Court. Asking them to disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters seems beyond the pale. 

Rudy Giuliani and the Trump campaign legal team soldier on…

There is nothing in the law that keeps these cases from being litigated after the fact; only the remedy of allowing President Trump a second term is eliminated.

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal attorney, said Friday on Newsmax TV’s “Stinchfield” that the president’s legal team will continue filing lawsuits even after the Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit by Texas, which was backed by 17 other states and 126 House Republicans, to overturn the election results in four swing states.

Giuliani said, “The case wasn’t rejected on the merits, the case was rejected on standing. So the answer to that is to bring the case now to the district court by the president, by some of the electors, alleging some of the same facts where there would be standing and therefore get a hearing.”

There’s nothing that prevents us from filing these cases immediately in the district court in which the president, of course, would have standing, some of the electors would have standing in that their constitutional rights have been violated.”

He added, “We’re not finished. Believe me.”

Adam Schiff tries to delegitimize legitimate legal inquiries into the integrity of the 2020 election…

An excerpt from a conversation between Chris Hayes, the host of MSNBCs “All In with Chris Hayes,” and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) discussing the recent Supreme Court refusal to hear the lawsuit brought by the State of Texas over irregularities in four other states.

HAYES: “Your reaction, I guess, first to the reaction of the Court, as expected, dispatching with this attempt?”

SCHIFF: “Well it was the only decision they could make. This wasn’t a close call. It wasn’t a hard call. It was really no call at all.”

“What it was is, essentially, an effort to overturn our democracy, dressed up in shabby, legal clothing.”

[OCS: Like Schiff’s shabby attempt to impeach the President of the United States using a phony “classified” whistleblower who remains hidden from sight, the suppression of criminal evidence regarding Joe Biden’s corrupt activities, and alleged “evidence” which Schiff never presented?]

“So, I don’t think the Supreme Court had to work very hard to reach the conclusion it did.”

[OCS: Let us remember that the case was not heard, its merits never discussed, no legal conclusions drawn, and no remedies proffered. The case was rejected on procedural grounds involving the use of “standing.” 

Let us also remember that this entire matter was triggered by Chief Justice Roberts who voted with the liberals not to hear a case that would have compelled the State of Pennsylvania to follow the U.S. Constitution – and would have been binding on other States playing electoral games.]

“What I find, frankly, so astonishing is that the lawsuit was filed, to begin with, and that so many of my colleagues in the GOP, including Kevin McCarthy, would lend their names to this effort to overturn our presidential election.”

And it makes you wonder, what do these people stand for? I mean, all the things they profess to believe in, all of the Constitutional oaths they took, apparently, are just meaningless to them.”

[OCS: One might also wonder about the motives and actions of Adam Schiff, who is a graduate of Stanford (Political Science) and Harvard Law School, and surprisingly, an Assistant United States Attorney. He did try to overturn a presidential election. He did try an end-run around the Constitution by creating un-Constitutional grounds for impeachment that had no resemblance to the intent of the Founding Fathers when it came to “high crimes and misdemeanors.”]

The only thing that, apparently, matters is perpetuation of their power. And that is just a such a danger to the country.

[OCS: Oh, the irony of speaking about the perpetuation of the power when that is the sole stated goal of the Democrat Party – and, I might add, its driving force towards an authoritarian one-party system like the one found in Schiff’s State of California.] 

And I don’t think we can write it off that, well, you know, they knew this would fail. It was a face-saving gesture. We’ve heard enough of that. The damage they’re doing continues to be long-lasting.”

[OCS: Consider the long-lasting damage wreaked by the Democrats who have rendered our electoral system and individual vote nearly meaningless. Or the long-lasting damage that has given tacit approval to unconstitutional electoral actions by non-legislative parties such as election officials and members of the judiciary.]

He added, “It’s like they’re stabbing the body politic but saying we’re not aiming for vital organs. They’re doing injury to the country, as it is.

[OCS: Perhaps the analogy is valid when you consider GOP surgeons operating on the body politic to remove a fast-metastasizing Democrat cancer?] 

Right now, they are creating a permanent set of aggrieved Americans who feel the election was stolen from them. That is lasting damage.

[OCS: Yes, American citizens who were disenfranchised by the illegal, immoral, and unconstitutional actions of those who, it appears, successfully stole their vote. And depending on the incoming administration's actions, perhaps their birthright as citizens of the United States. Again, we see the Democrats “projecting” the damage they caused on the GOP – some of whom choose not to roll over and die.]

Whether they win or lose this lawsuit, whether they expected to lose it or not, these continuing, false claims about the election, this continuing fallacy that, somehow, millions voted improperly. It’s nonsense.”

[OCS: False claims? Continuing Fallacy? Do you mean like the many Democrat scandals in the Obama-era that turned out to be true and proven by testimonial and documentary evidence? Do you mean like the nonsense of deploying almost all major congressional committees controlled by Democrats to investigate and prosecute a President for a non-crime that was, in reality, a made-up issue? You mean like the nonsense of your entire existence as a Democrat toady and swamp rat?]

<Source>

A deep pile of Schiff…

Congenital liar Adam Schiff, a Harvard Law School graduate, has subverted the House Intelligence Committee into a tyrannical Democrat partisanship echo-chamber that shuts out minority GOP participation. Adam Schiff needs to be removed from Congress and questioned about his knowledge and actions regarding fellow Democrat committee member Eric Swalwell and his interactions with a Chinese spy. There also are remaining questions regarding Schiff’s collusion with members of the National Security Council, the fake whistleblower, and various unreleased documents that are still being withheld from the GOP minority members on the House Intelligence Committee.

And let us not forget that it was NBC News and MSNBC that helped destroy an innocent man, Lt. General Michael Flynn, and cover-up one of the most important national security risks of our time, the compromise of the Biden family and Joe Biden himself by the Communist Chinese before the election.

More Democrat doo-doo…

Only in the universe of deranged Democrats do you find a Representative like Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) asking the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, to find ways not to seat the 126 Republicans who supported the Texas lawsuit,

Excerpts from the letter

On November 3, 2020, former Vice President Joe Biden was elected to be the 46th President of the United States by overwhelming margins in the popular vote and the Electoral College. Despite his decisive victory, Donald Trump and other prominent Republicans have commenced a daily assault on the legitimacy of the election that includes filing dozens of frivolous lawsuits seeking to have the results invalidated. Tragically, Members of our House of Representatives are supporting and amplifying these attacks on democracy, now culminating in 126 House Republicans joining1 a malignant lawsuit filed by the state of Texas against the states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. This suit demands the will of the voters of these states be overturned and the Electoral College votes be stolen and awarded to Donald Trump.

[OCS: The President and his campaign are legitimately challenging, with particularity and specificity, voter anomalies in four battleground states, as is his right. As for the legitimacy of the election, it is yet to be determined. And, as for the overwhelming margins, they were not that overwhelming as to even suggesting a major victor for Biden.]

Stated simply, men and women who would act to tear the United States government apart cannot serve as Members of the Congress.

[OCS: By these criteria, few Democrats, if any, would remain in Congress.]

These lawsuits seeking to obliterate public confidence in our democratic system by invalidating the clear results of the 2020 presidential election attack the text and spirit of the Constitution, which each Member swears to support and defend, as well as violate the Rules of our House of Representatives, which explicitly forbid Members from committing unbecoming acts that reflect poorly on our chamber.

[OCS: The confidence in our democratic system was obliterated by the Democrats when they were caught spying on American citizens, compromising the nation’s intelligence and law enforcement agencies, attempting to impeach the President of the United States falsely, and now – jiggering an election.

As for unbecoming acts, the entire racist Congressional Black Caucus and the majority of the Democrats would be gone if the House Ethics Committee and other Committees actually upheld their sworn oaths of office.]

Consequently, I call on you to exercise the power of your offices to evaluate steps you can take to address these constitutional violations this Congress and, if possible, refuse to seat in the 117th Congress any Members-elect seeking to make Donald Trump an unelected dictator.

[OCS: Billyboy – referring to the President of the United States as an unelected dictator is an unbecoming act, as is most of what the congressional Democrats have done for the past four years.]

Just as the American people’s clear vote in support of President-elect Biden must be respected, so too must votes cast in favor of our Members-elect. But the actions of any of our colleagues to demolish democracy, regardless of party affiliation, must be repudiated in the strongest possible terms. Rising from the embers of the Civil War, the Fourteenth Amendment was written to prevent the destruction of the United States from without and within. The moment we face now may be without parallel since 1860. The fate of our democracy depends on us meeting that moment.

[OCS: That’s the problem: the American people have been presented with evidence, unchallenged aa yet in a court of competent jurisdiction, that the election results are tainted and that the majority of the American people may not have clearly voted for Joe Biden.]

Bottom line…

We fight on and take actions to prepare ourselves for a Biden Administrations and disruptions to our healthcare, financial, and social safety nets.

We are so screwed.
