Based on the ample evidence of election fraud, corruption, and vote tampering done repeatedly by Democrats nationwide during the 2020 election, we can expect these politicians and their minions to commit similar election crimes in the upcoming 2022 mid-term elections, especially because the effort by some Republicans to reform their state election systems in the key purple states was so effectively blocked by Democrats, by many quisling Republicans, and by a willing leftist press.
It is however important to understand where that election tampering was done in 2020 in order to understand the election fraud to come, as well as creating a strategy to prevent it. As real estate agents like to say, “Location is everything!”, and it appears this applies to election fraud as well.
The 2020 fraud in Democratically-controlled Fulton County (Atlanta), Georgia.
In 2020, in states that were purple and where the final result was in doubt, the Democrats took advantage of their total control of the local urban voting districts in those states — where there are very few Republican voters — to tilt the results. In such places (Philadelphia, New York, Atlanta, Detroit, Phoenix) the government is essentially a one-party Democrat operation. Many election districts in these cities have no Republican election judges at all. If the Democrats wish to commit election fraud, there is no one looking over their shoulder to question them, with some districts actually taking aggressive action in 2020 to illegally keep Republican poll watchers out.
Thus we saw strong evidence in all of these cities of pro-Democrat ballot-stuffing, of all types, from fake ballots to ballots counted multiple times to evidence the votes on the ballots themselves were changed by computer. The fraud however was strongly localized to these urban centers controlled by Democrats. The vote tampering was able to tilt the statewide results. but not the local contests.
For example, Democrat mayors in Wisconsin teamed up to have drop boxes placed illegally in unsupervised locations, where Democratic Party mules could stuff them with thousands of harvested ballots. The Wisconsin Supreme Court finally ruled on July 8, 2022 that these boxes were illegal, and violated the plain language of the state’s election laws:
The court noted that by spring 2021, municipal clerks reported that there were 570 drop boxes in 66 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties. “Only the legislature may permit absentee voting via ballot drop boxes,” the court said in the ruling. “WEC [Wisconsin Election Commission] cannot. Ballot drop boxes appear nowhere in the detailed statutory system for absentee voting. WEC’s authorization of ballot drop boxes was unlawful.”
The drop box policy was pushed mostly by Democratic Party mayors and officials in Wisconsin’s largest cities, most of which are controlled heavily by Democrats.
Thus, even though there is strong evidence in recent years that overall the electorate in Wisconsin has been increasingly moving rightward — illustrated by the fact that both houses of its legislature have been controlled by Republicans since 2011 after decades of mixed control — in the 2020 election Biden won the state, and its state-wide offices have shifted to Democratic Party control.
Similarly, the election audit in Maricopa County, Arizona’s largest county controlled mostly by the Democratic Party, found rampant evidence of ballot tampering and fraud, so much so that some election researchers are convinced the fraud in that county stole the state’s election from Trump.
The same process can be seen in Pennsylvania, in Georgia, and in other states. While local elections seem to be shifting to the right, the state-wide elections seem to be going to the left, a pattern that makes no sense.
The consequence of this localized fraud was the ability of the Democrats to change state-wide and national elections, shifting the vote totals so that Democratic Party senators, governors, and other state-wide officials won their elections, especially if the actual vote count was reasonably close. This fraud also shifted the final totals in the presidential election in several states from Trump to Biden, turning some into Biden victories and thus giving Biden the victory in the electoral college.
Expect the same localized election fraud effort in 2022. While the Democrats’ tactics will have to change somewhat because some of their fraud (such as the drop boxes in Wisconsin) has been uncovered and banned, their vote tampering effort will still be focused in those major urban cities where they have total control. We saw this illustrated again in the New York State primary on June 28th, when Republican voters in at least three election sites in New York City discovered there were no Republican ballots on hand, disenfranchising them from voting.
What will this localized fraud mean for the total election? It means that while Democrats are more likely to steal the elections on the state and national levels, they have little ability to change results at the local level. House elections are more likely to be fair, because Democrats don’t control the election process. They might be able to guarantee victory in the urban centers, but since Democrats already control those congressional seats their vote tampering gets them nothing. And in the other more balanced districts, the election will be more properly monitored, and likely will produce the expected strong victories for Republicans..
Thus, I predict that the Republicans will win control of the House, and will do so with a surprisingly large majority.
As for the Senate, the Republicans will also regain the majority, but in at least a few cases, such as in Michigan, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Georgia, election fraud could end up defeating some Republican Senate candidates, because Democrats will stuff votes in Democrat-controlled cities. In the end, the Senate might shift to Republican control, but not by much.
Similarly, expect the Democrats to hold their own in elections for statewide offices, such as governors and attorneys general, but to lose badly at the local legislative level and at school boards.
The result will be that the Democrats will not be defeated as resoundingly as the polls clearly indicate they should be. The result will be that they will not be properly punished for their increasingly authoritarian and oppressive policies that are bankrupting the nation. Their power will be reduced, but not enough to allow for any real reforms to take place.
How can we change this? Experts on war always warn military officers to avoid the mistake of fighting the last war when engaged in the next. While you can learn something from what happened before, you must not think things will be the same.
To fix our election system, it is actually less important to block the specific tactics Democrats have used and now plan to use to commit election fraud. Blocking computer manipulation and absentee ballot stuffing is good, but a more important strategy will be to recognize the localized nature of the fraud. If the Republican Party was to send a lot of poll watchers to these urban centers while saturating them with investigations, it will do much more to prevent the fraud, before it can happen.
In other words, rather than screaming about election tampering after it has happened and the Republicans have already lost elections, Republicans should focus their effort to make the tampering difficult to begin with.
Go to the scene of the crime — before the crime has been committed. Don’t let them lock you out. Don’t leave when they ask you to. Make them do things right, because they know you are there, watching.
This strategy is not only more efficient and effective, it will likely result in some solid and very legitimate Republican victories.

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.
“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.
