Conscious Choice cover

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.

Evidence found proving Georgia ballots were counted multiple times in 2020 election

The audit of 147,000 ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, has now found definitive proof that the same ballots were counted multiple times, thereby manufacturing fake votes.

The link takes you to a Twitter video showing examples of several absolutely identical ballots that were run through the tabulators multiple times to produced fake votes. The multiple scans were also done on the same tabulator, meaning it was likely done by the same person.

This proves that there was vote tampering in Fulton County. The investigation now has to determine who did it, which will be possible because the ballots show the tabulator used and when. Linking this to footage on security cameras will determine the perpetrator.

The audit also has to determine the extent of the fraud. One or two ballots tabulated twice is not significant. There is other evidence that suggests thousands of ballots were tabulated improperly and intentionally in this manner. If the audit demonstrates this, and calculates the number of votes involved, it could prove the election in Georgia was invalid.

At a minimum it proves that Georgia needs a complete overall of its election system, including a complete house-cleaning of all involved, especially in Fulton County.

UPDATE: Read this detail report on the new allegations and discoveries that point to outright fraud in the Georgia November 2020 vote tallies. It captures the whole story very nicely.

    The only way to get anything done about this, is to say the vote fraud inflated Trump totals.

    I have twitter blocked, but I don’t need to see it, do I.

  • John: This YouTube video is cued to that Twitter video:

  • Skunk Bucket

    It was widely suspected after the election that this kind of hanky-panky was going on. If only there had been some kind of grass roots action to attempt to get Congress to look into these issues before counting the electoral votes on January 6th…

  • Alex Petzinger

    Did the audit of the Georgia vote demonstrate which party (or candidates) profit from the fraud?

  • Alex Petzinger: The audit is not done. The evidence is still being compiled. We do not know how much the tampering will change the election totals. These releases are just illustrating what is so far being found.

  • Col Beausabre

    “Did the audit of the Georgia vote demonstrate which party (or candidates) profit from the fraud?”

    That really doesn’t matter, what counts is the need for Georgia (and maybe other states) to tighten up their elections. If our elections lose their creditability, we are a Banana Republic – and I don’t mean the store

    I remember a saying popular after Chicago put Kennedy over the top in 1960, parodying the slogan on Illinois’s license plates

    “Illinois, the land of Lincoln
    Chicago, where he still votes”

  • Col Beausabre noted “If our elections lose their creditability, we are a Banana Republic . . .”

    Already happened.

  • Alton

    It was not only Chicago in 1960, LBJ also rigged Texas; where after the churches went after him in an election he barely won in 1956 – Lyndon said that he would see to that no one ever defeated him again, no Matter how many votes they had…….
    Johnson stuck a provision in a year end appropriations bill that forbade Churches from campaigning for or against a candidate. We still live with that late 50s code section, unless you are Al the EGore campaigning in black churches or California Monasteries raising cold hard cash……..

  • Henry Lee

    Fat chance of ever straightening Fulton County out.

  • John

    The fact that both sides aren’t decrying this, and there is no media coverage outside of conservative media, means the US is a banana republic.

    What was found in the video was easy to identify because of the unique marks. Tip of Iceberg.

    There needs to be justice for those who did this.
