The Gateway Pundit reported about December 14, the day that electors selected Joe Biden for the presidency:
As the day (December 14) comes to a close, seven states convened and picked a slate of electors for President Donald Trump as well as Joe Biden.
Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico all selected a slate of electors for President Trump as well as Joe Biden.
What does this all mean?
As noted in an article at Reuters in October:
States with close contests between Republican President Donald Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden could produce competing slates of electors, one certified by the governor and the other by the legislature…
… Both chambers of [the US] Congress could accept the same slate of electors (when Congress approves the electors on January 6) which would almost certainly put the matter to rest.
The chambers could also split, which is more likely if the Republicans retain control of the Senate and Democrats hold onto their House majority.
If lawmakers cannot agree on a set of electors, the country will find itself in uncharted territory.
The Electoral Count Act, often described by academics as “unintelligible,” seems to favor the slate of electors certified by the state’s governor, according to Ned Foley, a professor at Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.
But Foley notes that some scholars and an analysis by the Congressional Research Service have rejected that conclusion.
Academics have sketched out several scenarios. Under one, Pence as president of the Senate could throw out both sets of a state’s electors. Another contemplates that the House of Representatives would end up choosing between Biden and Trump. [This scenario would give one vote to each state and since the Republicans have more states with Republican majorities, President Trump would likely be the winner].
Conclusion: The path remains wide open for president Trump to win re-election. So keep the faith, friends. Mike Pence apparently could do it singlehandedly if he has the courage.
More Voting Machine Corruption
There is just one small group of 16 Dominion voting machines that has been examined in Michigan. Overall, Dominion machines were used in 28 states in the 2020 election and are suspected of flipping millions of votes from president Trump to Biden.
Already there is obvious corruption in the Michigan case as reported in my December 14 commentary. There’s more. Ivan Pentchoukov at The Epoch Times reported:
A court-sanctioned forensic audit of voting systems in Michigan’s Antrim County determined that crucial security and ballot-adjudication logs were missing from machines by Dominion Voting Systems, the company at the epicenter of the dispute over whether voter fraud occurred during the 2020 general election.
The findings are part of a preliminary forensic report (pdf) written by Russell Ramsland, a former Reagan White House official who has worked for NASA and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Kevin Elsenheimer, the chief judge of Michigan’s 13th Circuit Court, approved the report for release to the public on Dec. 14.
According to the report, both the ballot-adjudication logs and the security logs for the Nov. 3 general election appear to have been removed; logs for prior elections are still present on the machines.
“The adjudication process is the simplest way to manually manipulate votes. The lack of records prevents any form of audit accountability, and their conspicuous absence is extremely suspicious since the files exist for previous years using the same software,” Ramsland wrote. “We must conclude that the 2020 election cycle records have been manually removed.”
The absence of the adjudication logs is particularly alarming because the forensic exam found that the voting machines rejected an extraordinary number of ballots for adjudication, a manual process in which election workers determine the ultimate outcome for each ballot.
OK, so there already is more suspicious activity being reported. This is why Democrats are desperate to stop any scrutiny of these machines and this is why we need a national audit of thousands of machines over all 28 states, to get a clear picture of how they worked. The Epoch Times also reported:
A forensic audit of Dominion Voting Systems machines and software in Michigan showed that they were designed to create fraud and influence election results, a data firm said Monday.
“We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results,” Russell Ramsland Jr., co-founder of Allied Security Operations Group, said in a preliminary report.
“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 trail. This leads to voter or election fraud. Based on our study, we conclude that The Dominion Voting System should not be used in Michigan. We further conclude that the results of Antrim County should not have been certified,” he added.
Ramsland, a former Reagan administration official who has worked for NASA, and others from the group examined Dominion products in Antrim County earlier this month as part of an ongoing case.
The team inspected and performed forensic duplication on the county’s election management server, which was running Dominion Democracy Suite 5.5.3-002, compact flash cards used by local precincts in their Dominion ImageCast system, USB memory sticks used by Dominion Voter Assist Terminals, and USB memory sticks used for the poll book. They used X-Ways Forensics and other tools including Blackbag-Blacklight Forensic Software, and Virtual Box.
Ramsland further reported:
Significantly, the computer system shows vote adjudication logs for prior years; but all adjudication log entries for the 2020 election cycle are missing.The adjudication process is the simplest way to manually manipulate votes. The lack of records prevents any form of audit accountability, and their conspicuous absence is extremely suspicious since the files exist for previous years using the same software. Removal of these files violates state law and prevents a meaningful audit, even if the Secretary wanted to conduct an audit. We must conclude that the 2020 election cycle records have been manually removed.
416. Likewise, all server security logs prior to 11:03 pm on November 4, 2020 are missing. This means that all security logs for the day after the election, on election day, and prior to election day are gone. Security logs are very important to an audit trail, forensics, and for detecting advanced persistent threats and outside attacks, especially on systems with outdated system files. These logs would contain domain controls, authentication failures, error codes, times users logged on and off, network connections to file servers between file accesses, internet connections, times, and data transfers.Other server logs before November 4, 2020 are present; therefore, there is no reasonable explanation for the security logs to be missing.
The analysis further found that on “November 21, 2020 an unauthorized user unsuccessfully attempted to zero out election results.” Allied believes that is more evidence of tampering. The entire report is worth reading, but this is perhaps the most interesting conclusion:
Antrim County failed to properly update its system. A purposeful lack of providing basic computer security updates in the system software and hardware demonstrates incompetence, gross negligence, bad faith, and/or willful non-compliance in providing the fundamental system security required by federal and state law.There is no way this election management system could have passed tests or have been legally certified to conduct the 2020 elections in Michigan under the current laws. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures–Michigan requires full compliance with federal standards as determined by a federally accredited voting system laboratory
Here’s more from The Gateway Pundit:
In a huge development on Monday morning, Michigan Judge Elsenheiemer gave Attorney Matthew DePerno permission to release the results of his forensic study on the Dominion Voting Machines by IT experts with the provision that he make a few redactions, which DePerno claims were “minor.”
DePerno said the redactions were “not relevant,” and that the key part of the report has been released in his bombshell report.
The report by Allied Security Operations Group was released following the hearing.
From our report by Patty McMurray on Monday — After the forensic examination of 16 Dominion Voting machines in Antrim, Co. MI, Allied Security Operations Group has concluded that the Dominion Voting machines were assigned a 68.05% error rate. DePerno explained that when ballots are put through the machine, a whopping 68.05% error rate means that 68.05% of the ballots are sent for bulk adjudication, which means they collect the ballots in a folder. “The ballots are sent somewhere where people in another location can change the vote,” DePerno explained.
This was a very significant finding. The Dominion machines were set up to dispute 68.05 percent of all ballots. These ballots were then sent off to “another location” where people in other locations could change the votes.
This is election fraud.
And now it appears this was not an isolated incident by Dominion voting machines.
The same thing happened in Clark County Nevada — Las Vegas.
Clark County, Nevada election officials also *HAPPENED* to report an error scanning “ABOUT 70% OF BALLOTS”.
As Attorney Matthew DePerno noted that this Dominion voting setting was an “intentionally and purposefully” setting error.
President Trump tweeted this morning about these tremendous problems being found with voting machines.
Tremendous problems being found with voting machines. They are so far off it is ridiculous. Able to take a landslide victory and reduce it to a tight loss. This is not what the USA is all about. Law enforcement shielding machines. DO NOT TAMPER, a crime. Much more to come!
Meanwhile The Gateway Pundit reported:
Last night the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued a rare Emergency Directive 21-01, in response to a KNOWN COMPROMISE involving SolarWinds Orion products.
This was only the fifth Emergency Directive issued by CISA under the authorities granted by Congress in the Cybersecurity Act of 2015.
CISA reported a breach of the SolarWinds Orion products.
This Emergency Directive called on all federal civilian agencies to review their networks for indicators of compromise and disconnect or power down SolarWinds Orion products immediately.
So guess who uses SolarWinds?
Dominion Voting Systems uses SolarWinds products.
It’s right there on their website.
So there is fraud on top of suspicion on top of fraud. And we are just beginning to uncover it only six weeks after the election. As time passes, the dimensions of this fraud will be exposed for all to see.
Leftists Deny Reality of Brexit
You can always rely on leftists anywhere in the world to deny the will of the people. For instance, California passed a referendum in 1994 to deny taxpayer funds to illegal immigrants with Proposition 187. So Democrats got 187 overturned in the courts.
This is how liberals use the courts to make and break laws, which is not what the courts are supposed to do. Liberals use many other means to get their way, like stealing elections. Not only did they steal the 2020 presidential election but Democrats stole the 1960 presidential election for John F. Kennedy. And look at what happened to him.
It’s not nice to steal elections…
Nikitas3.com has counted six US Senate elections that Democrats have stolen since 1948, and there are probably more that I have not yet discovered.
Another way that leftists work is to delay ideas that the people have voted for. A great example is the June 2016 vote in Britain to leave the European Union. Yet four-and-a-half years later, the so-called Brexit deal is still not complete.
It is important to remember how Brexit got passed in the first place. There was a national referendum on it. Anti-Brexit forces were sure that they were going to win but then they lost by a significant margin.
So rather than accept the will of the people, they have delayed and delayed and dragged their feet, doing everything in their power to try to stop Brexit. This foot-dragging goes on to this very day. Breitbart News reported on December 14, 2020:
The British and European Union negotiating teams have agreed to push back the latest in a long line of “final” deadlines for a Brexit deal to be done yet again, with both European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen and British prime minister Boris Johnson pledging to “go the extra mile”.
“As things stand, and this was basically what Ursula and I agreed, we are still very far apart on some key things,” Prime Minister Boris Johnson told Sky News.
This Brexit deal should have been done long ago. The people voted for it. But that is of no importance to the left.
Muslim Immigrants Doing Poorly in Sweden
We secure-borders conservatives are rational. We know that certain groups of people who immigrate into our Western cultures are not going to fit in and succeed. We know that they come from cultures that will never mesh with our advanced Western ideas.
But that does not stop the open-borders globalists from importing more and more of them. And whaddya know, they are not fitting in at all. Breitbart News reported:
Swedish Moderate Party MP Hanif Bali has claimed that of 7,000 Afghan “high school amnesty” migrants in Sweden, just 68 have full-time work.
Bali, a noted critic of mass migration, pushed back against those who support the so-called “high school amnesty” for around 7,000 Afghan migrants that was passed in 2018 despite indications that 78 per cent of the supposedly underage migrants eligible were actually adults.
Yessiree, that is one-tenth of one percent who have jobs. Yet leftists in Europe keep telling us that Europe needs young immigrants to help an aging population. But if the immigrants are not working, that idea does not compute.
In the United States we have had many bad outcomes from open borders. For instance poor blacks and hispanics in America suffer most from illegal immigration.
How? Illegal immigrants push down wages by working for less; and they push up rents since most illegals tend to settle in poor neighborhoods. When they need housing, they push up rents by creating a higher demand for apartments. This causes rents to rise under the natural economic law of supply and demand.
Soros-Backed District Attorneys Undermine Rule of Law
George Soros and other America-hating figures are using new tactics to undermine us. They are simply helping to install people in our legal system who will refuse to enforce the law. We have seen this in Portland, Oregon where the district attorney has simply declined to prosecute bad people for rioting, looting and attacking the police.
It is important to remember that conservatism represents law and order, while socialism represents chaos. Leftists use chaos to seize power. For instance, as rioters in American cities intimidated and frightened law-abiding citizens, then those citizens lose their courage and their power and bad people, protected by soft-on-crime Democrats, take over.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
Newly elected Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón announced radical policy changes that he claimed are backed up by “science.”
George Gascón was previously the DA of San Francisco and absolutely turned that place into a hell hole.
Gascón’s “progressive” programs caused a historic surge in crime and during his tenure, San Francisco’s property crime rate spiked a whopping 37%.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, in 2017, San Fran reported over 31,000 car break-ins – the WORST year on record.
Now Gascón is going to destroy what’s left of Los Angeles, a city already struggling with authoritarian lockdowns and record number of homeless people.
“I recognize that these are big changes, but they are changes that will enable us to actually affect the truly vulnerable,” Gascón said.
“The money bail system is as unsafe as it is unjust,” Gascón said. “The rich can be dangerous while the poor impose zero threat to society.” The amount of money a person has in their bank account does not determine the danger they pose to their community, he added.
New changes announced:
1) End cash bail by January
2) Conviction integrity unit
3) No death penalty
4) Felony charging no longer seeking enhancements i.e. gang affiliation
5) Juveniles will not be tried as adults
6) Use-of-force review board to reopen fatal officer-involved shooting cases going back to 2012!
Californians last month overwhelmingly voted against ending cash bail and voted against ending the death penalty, but the radical Marxist DA is marching forward with his own policy changes against the will of the people.
The Los Angeles police union blasted the radical DA’s move to end cash bail and called it “disturbing.”
“As homicides, shooting victims, and shots fired into occupied homes soar in Los Angeles, it’s disturbing that Gascón’s first act in office is to explore every avenue possible to release from jail those responsible for this bloodshed,” the Los Angeles Police Protective League said in a statement. “Victims and law-abiding residents lost a voice today while criminals and gang members gained an ally in the prosecutor’s office.”
This is par for the course. Ironically the people who are being hurt most by urban violence are poor blacks, hispanics and immigrants, including illegal immigrants in poor neighborhoods.
When the rioters burned down businesses in Minneapolis last Summer, most of the businesses were serving poor neighborhoods. So Soros and his friends are really destroying poor people most.
Polls consistently show that poor blacks strongly oppose the movement to de-fund the police. This is no surprise.
