Election fraud update

Below the fold is an embed of today’s Arizona hearing on the possibility of election fraud. As this is posted it just begun. Whether you think fraud occurred on November 3rd or not, you should listen. It either should reassure you, or make you reconsider your doubt about there being any fraud.

The hearing itself is not an official legislative hearing, because the Republican leadership has refused to allow such a hearing. Because of this, this hearing does not have subpoena power in order to initiate an actual investigation.

In other words, it appears the Republican leadership in Arizona is allying itself with the Democrats to block any investigation. If this does not change fast, I would expect that the support the Republican Party presently gets will disintegrate rather quickly. Why vote for these weasels if they won’t do what their supporters want.

Once again, it is crucial for Arizona voters to call the Republican leadership in the state House and state Senate and tell them this:

  • Senate President: Karen Fann, 602-926-5874
  • Senate Majority leader: Rick Gray, 602-926-5413
  • Speaker of the House: Russell Bowers, 602-926-3128
  • House Majority leader: Warren Petersen, 602-926-4136

Meanwhile in Georgia, a judge has, after some indecision, now ordered that no Dominion voting machine should be rebooted or wiped for the next ten days in order for investigations to proceed in connection with a variety of lawsuits.

Amazingly, at the same time yesterday the Dominion system in the county that covers Atlanta crashed, delaying the recount and investigation. How convenient.

In Pennsylvania, it is now known that, during a mere ninety-minute period 99.4% of almost 600,000 votes went to Joe Biden. The only place you get that kind of percentage is either in Soviet Russia, or if fraud was perpetuated. And if by some miracle these numbers are legitimate, some detailed explaination must be provided.

Based on this and other data, a state judge has blocked any certification of the vote, pending a full investigation, noting in her decision that based on that data the lawsuits outstanding are likely to prevail.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    Dominion machines in Georgia, who has had control over them since the election?

    If there is no confidence in the chain of custody there can be NO confidence in that information.

    I think it will prove interesting when a forensic analysis is done on the actual paper ballots and who printed them and where they in deed came from.

    And, who has the HSB sticks from Pennsylvania?

    How much of this evidence has already been “Hillary Clintoned” ? (“You mean wipe is with a cloth?”)

    Now let the legislators in Arizona not certify their election results.

  • Cotour

    That is : USB sticks in Pennsylvania.

    And to add, who has been in control of the physical machines in Pennsylvania?

  • James Street

    Dominion voting machine sales guy to the swamp: “So do you want the basic model that tabulates votes, or the super duper model where you can magically create and delete votes remotely from Germany? *

    * Because every voting machine should have the functionality to manipulate votes.

    . .or make you reconsider your doubt about there being any fraud.

    No chance of watching it making you reconsider your conviction that there was widespread fraud?
    No, no, of course not. The confirmation bias allows for no such possible reconsideration.

    Starlink comes in handy, beginning next year at large scale I suppose, if Elon Musk wants to catch all those millions of users who are abandoning the lying hate propaganda media of socialist billionaires. Point to point communication between individuals without censoring middlemen. Like 1995 all over again. Internet 2.0

    “Conclusion: This report studies 8,954 individual updates to the vote totals in all 50 states and finds that four individual updates — two of which were widely noticed on the internet, including by the President — are profoundly anomalous; they deviate from a pattern which is otherwise found in the vast majority of the remaining 8,950 vote updates. The findings presented by this report [28]suggest that four vote count updates — which collectively were decisive in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia, and thus decisive of a critical forty-two electoral votes — are especially anomalous and merit further investigation.”

    Just look at the charts in these contested cities, it does not take a mathematics PHD to understand what clearly appears to have gone on.

    “Putting this all together, we see that if all four of these vote updates were extreme — but not as extreme — that the difference in margin would be greater than the margin of victory in all three states.
    At the very least, it is possible to definitively say that Joe Biden’s victory in all three of these states relied on four of the seven most co-extreme vote updates in the entire data set of 8,954 vote updates.”

    I think it is reasonable to conclude that things were “Handled” where there was need for them to be handled. Anyone who believes that things like this 2020 presidential election was not ensured by various means to end in a “proper” and “Correct” manner does not fully understand the implications does not understand how the world of politics works.

    Confirmation bias? I think not.

    If we can do electronic banking then we can do electronic voting. The difference now is that when I leave the polling place, unlike when I leave the bank, my votes (my “deposits”) go into the ether. I should be able to log into a voter account, see my votes applied to the candidates I voted for, tallied by district, county and state. Logs of these transactions should be public source and available to all for analysis.

    Who holds the Dominion machines and servers?
    Why members of the DimoRat Party of course!
    What does it matter WHO Votes!
    It MATTERS WHOM counts the votes….
    To rephrase Comrade Stalin!!!
    Stalin he got even with his fellow Homies!
    The Holodrom(sp?) — the starvation of 10 million or so Ukrainians!
    I wonder what GetMo will be used for in 2021 ??

    Note I tried to find the analysis paper on Google Kong and after three tries, each three pages down, then entered dogpile in Google search box and the first try the second listing had the full url;. Amazing!!! I hope Google’s worm followed me there!
    DuckDuckgo also worked!

    I cannot not wait to try Musk’s little constellation…….

    Holodomor — correction……….

  • Alton: Google became so popular initially because its search engine was once objective and provided the best search results. It always used to get you what you were looking for, quickly.

    Now the “progressive” control-freaks at Google have corrupted the search engine so that it only finds links that they want you to see.

    In other words, it is no longer a useful search engine. People should stop using it.

    I use DuckDuckGo now as my main search engine. It is private, and finds for me what I am looking for. I used to use StartPage, but that search engine apparently depends entirely on Google’s software, so it does a poor job.

    “Weighted race” election feature.

    This is the term we all need to better get acquainted with and understand, this i what is “Featured” in the Dominion election system.

    Where there are not whole numbers associated with a vote, but fractionated votes where the results can be skewed one way or another.

    And who has lobbyist interests pushing these systems on our local government$? Democrat leadership.

    You want to get installed a voting system into America where you can influence any election and install who best fits your purposes, even though it is demonstrated that they are not secure and threaten our Democracy? You build the systems and then you get a lobbyist and some politicians, spread a lot of money around and call it an investment and you will become a success.

    Well done Mr. Maduro and company. Political warfare takes all kinds of forms.

    If the voting machines use block-chain technology, each electronic vote is stamped with a unique number, which can then be retrieved by the voter using two point authentication. One downside (or upside if you want to ban illegal immigrants from voting) is that each voter would require a digital ID for each voter.
