Biggest Horse-Race Fixer of All Time Says Democrats Stole Election. Here’s How.

H/T Town Hall.

I hope this gets fixed on 6 January 2021 with a Donald Trump win.

I am the only nationally syndicated conservative talk radio host in America who spent his prior career as a professional gambler and “the King of Vegas Sports Gambling” (as the media dubbed me). But don’t take my word for it. Next time you’re in Vegas, look for my 180-pound granite star on Las Vegas Boulevard in front of Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.

 

So, no other conservative media personality has friends like I do. In addition to many of the top GOP politicians and the president of the United States, my list of buddies includes some “only in Vegas” characters such as “Richie.” Richie is a professional gambler and a convicted horse-race fixer.

Back in the day, Richie may have been the greatest and most prolific horse-race fixer in history. He fixed over 1,000 horse races in 11 years at every racetrack in California, bribing over 100 jockeys. Eventually, he was convicted and served time in prison.

That was 25 years ago. Today, Richie is one of the good guys and a respected member of his community, as well as a noted philanthropist. But Richie still has his street smarts — something no one in Washington, D.C., has. For over 50 years, he witnessed the smartest and sharpest scammers and cheaters in the gambling world. No one can spot a scam like Richie. My buddy has a Ph.D. in the Art of the Steal.

Richie watched and studied the 2020 presidential election. He calls it “the greatest scam and steal in world history.” He says anyone who denies this election was stolen is a criminal who was in on the scam; a bribed politician or bureaucrat who benefits from the scam; or a complete naive moron.

 

What does the world’s greatest horse-race fixer believe happened on election night? Richie says it’s clear that President Donald Trump won in a landslide in key battleground states, so big that Democrats had to move quickly to plan B and bring in reinforcements — vans, U.S. Postal Service trucks, even planes filled with fake ballots, in the wee hours of the morning, with no GOP witnesses watching.

The millions of fake ballots reportedly cast for Joe Biden weren’t enough. Democratic scammers had to call a timeout and obviously brought in millions of additional fake ballots to erase Trump’s massive lead.

In a coordinated conspiracy so easy to see — Richie calls it “amateur hour” — five states clearly agreed at the same time to pause or stop counting votes, thereby buying themselves time to have millions of additional fake ballots filled out, trucked in or, in some cases, flown into nearby airports.

In the case of Georgia, there are accusations of scammers faking that a pipe burst and caused a flood, during which they rolled out suitcases filled with ballots, all of which was caught on video.

Any idiot who isn’t blind can see what happened, says Richie. It was as if a brazen gang of 50 carrying AK-47s and not wearing face coverings robbed five banks at the exact same time, showed their IDs on the way out the door, and then got a blind eye turned by every FBI agent and every judge. Maybe people are in denial. Maybe the D.C. swamp got to them. Maybe they’re in on the scam. A lot of respectable people in power must be getting filthy rich on this scam, says Richie.

Some telltale signs of the scam: reports that GOP witnesses had to be removed from the room; that these ballots had only one name filled out (Biden) because scammers were rushing and didn’t have time to fill out down-ballot races; and that many of the ballots looked pristine because they were clearly never mailed but rather rushed from printing presses to counting rooms.

Street-smart Richie says this case is such a slam dunk that any judge who throws it out is dirty and any prosecutor who can’t convict these scammers should lose his or her license to practice law.

Richie compares this case to Scott Peterson’s 2004 murder trial. Peterson got the death penalty based only on circumstantial evidence. This 2020 election scam was so obvious it makes Scott Peterson look innocent by comparison.

Yet here we sit, with a conspiracy so deep that political leaders, mainstream media, social media, judges, prosecutors, the U.S. justice system, and virtually every person in power in D.C. act as if nothing happened. And they do it so casually, so matter-of-factly, that Richie says it’s easy to conclude they’re all in on the scam.

Jan. 20 will determine whether we are still a nation of laws or a corrupt, third-world banana republic where horse-race fixers tell the truth and politicians are the real scam artists.

11 GOP Senators Refuse, to Certify the Election Results, Until One Requirement Is Met

H/T Town Hall.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is leading a coalition of Republican senators who plan to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential results. The group is calling for a “10-day audit” of the results after “unprecedented allegations of voter fraud, violations and lax enforcement of election law, and other voting irregularities.”

 

“Voter fraud has posed a persistent challenge in our elections, although its breadth and scope are disputed. By any measure, the allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election exceed any in our lifetimes,” the coalition said in a statement.

Those allegations have cast a doubt on whether or not former Vice President Joe Biden is indeed the winner of the election. In fact, a joint poll between Reuters and Ipsos found that 39 percent of Americans believe “the election was rigged.” Of those, 67 percent of Republicans shared that belief, compared to 17 percent of Democrats and 31 percent of Independents.

“Some Members of Congress disagree with that assessment, as do many members of the media. But, whether or not our elected officials or journalists believe it, that deep distrust of our democratic processes will not magically disappear.  It should concern us all. And it poses an ongoing threat to the legitimacy of any subsequent administrations,” the group explained.

The coalition believe the courts, specifically the United States Supreme Court, should have addressed the issues of voter and election fraud. 

“Ideally, the courts would have heard evidence and resolved these claims of serious election fraud. Twice, the Supreme Court had the opportunity to do so; twice, the Court declined,” they said.

Because Congress has the constitutional power to decide whether or not to certify the election results, the coalition believes Jan. 6 will be the time to “consider and force resolution of the multiple allegations of serious voter fraud.”

Although Democrats have repeatedly shot down accusations of voter fraud, there have been numerous instances where Democrats objected to the results of a presidential election. They did it in 1969 with Richard Nixon, again in 2001 and 2005 with George W. Bush and in 2017 with Donald Trump. In 1969 and 2005 a Democrat from both chambers of Congress forced a vote on whether to accept the Electoral College votes that were being challenged.

The senators want to follow the precedent established in 1877 when an Electoral Commission was established to address allegations of voter fraud.

“The most direct precedent on this question arose in 1877, following serious allegations of fraud and illegal conduct in the Hayes-Tilden presidential race. Specifically, the elections in three states—Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina—were alleged to have been conducted illegally,” the coalition explains. “In 1877, Congress did not ignore those allegations, nor did the media simply dismiss those raising them as radicals trying to undermine democracy. Instead, Congress appointed an Electoral Commission—consisting of five Senators, five House Members, and five Supreme Court Justices—to consider and resolve the disputed returns.”

The coalition calls on their colleagues to establish an Electoral Commission “with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states. Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed.”

 

All 11 of the senators will vote not to certify the election on Jan. 6 “unless and until that emergency 10-day audit is completed.” 

They did, however, make clear that they expect the challenge to take place on a partisan basis, even though election integrity is not a partisan issue.

“We are not naïve. We fully expect most if not all Democrats, and perhaps more than a few Republicans, to vote otherwise.  But support of election integrity should not be a partisan issue,” the coalition explained. “A fair and credible audit—conducted expeditiously and completed well before January 20—would dramatically improve Americans’ faith in our electoral process and would significantly enhance the legitimacy of whoever becomes our next President. We owe that to the People.”

“These are matters worthy of the Congress, and entrusted to us to defend. We do not take this action lightly.  We are acting not to thwart the democratic process, but rather to protect it. And every one of us should act together to ensure that the election was lawfully conducted under the Constitution and to do everything we can to restore faith in our Democracy,” the senators said.

The group joining Cruz includes Ron Johnson (WI), James Lankford (OK), Steve Daines (MT), John Kennedy (LA), Marsha Blackburn (TN), and Mike Braun (IN), and Senators-Elect Cynthia Lummis (WY.), Roger Marshall (KS), Bill Hagerty (TN), and Tommy Tuberville (AL).

 
 

Georgia Voters Pay Attention: Biden’s Socialist Policies Could Cost You $4,000 Every Year

H/T Western Journal.

Just remember Georgia elections have consequences be wise in your choice.

Georgia residents are being warned that if they don’t vote for Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in the Senate runoff election, a potential Joe Biden administration could cost each household almost $40,000 over the next decade.

Therefore, it’s imperative that Georgia sends Perdue and Loeffler to Washington to ensure the GOP retains control of the upper chamber of Congress.

According to a new study by the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, five components of Biden’s socialist economic agenda would result in a “Georgia tax” that would cost each family more than $3,900 a year for the next 10 years.

Economist Stephen Moore, the co-founder of CUP, said a potential Biden administration would cause Georgia to lose jobs and become poorer.

“Georgia has been out of the 10 fastest growing states over the past decade thanks to pro-growth policies, including low taxes and low cost of living compared to other states,” Moore remarked in a statement.

“The Biden plan reduces these competitive advantages by forcing Georgia to adopt the same liberal policies that have been tried and failed in states like New York [and] California.”

The Committee to Unleash Prosperity said these five Biden policies will decimate Georgia’s economy:

  • Abolition of right-to-work laws
  • $500 billion federal bailout of blue states
  • Elimination of the cap on state and local tax deductions on federal tax returns
  • Anti-fossil fuel policies/expensive green energy mandates
  • $15-an-hour federal minimum wage.

Georgia is a right-to-work state, which means no employee can be forced to join a labor union as a condition of employment.

If Biden gets installed as president, he would rescind Georgia’s right-to-work law, which has brought tens of thousands of jobs to the Peach State.

“The net cost to Georgia over the next decade would be $151.3 billion at an annual cost of $3,900 per family,” a release from the Committee to Unleash Prosperity said. “This is more than most families will receive from the recent “Stimulus” bill in Washington.”

CUP said Georgia would be one of the biggest losers if Democrats won control of the Senate and the White House.

“Georgia ranks the third largest loser state from the Biden ‘tax’ on economically productive states,” CUP said. “Only Texas and Florida would lose more income due to these interstate redistribution policies.”

Over the past few decades, Democrats’ disastrous policies have decimated the economies of liberal states.

Research shows that states controlled by Democrats consistently have the worst economies. According to a 2019 American Legislative Exchange Council study called “Rich States, Poor States,” states run by Republicans have the strongest economies.

In 2019, eight of the top 10 state economies were run by Republican governors. In contrast, nine of the bottom 10 were run by Democrats, according to the report.

After destroying their economies with unscientific coronavirus shutdowns and imposing draconian restrictions on Americans’ civil liberties, Democratic governors and mayors now want taxpayers to bail them out of their self-created financial hellholes.

If Biden gets installed in the White House and the Democrats win control of both chambers of Congress, your taxes will soar while your personal freedoms are crushed.

Report: Georgia Poll Workers, Who Reported Irregularities, Have Been Terminated

H/T Western Journal.

What kind of monkey business is going on in the Peach State especially Fulton County?

What are they hiding in the Peach State?

Two Georgia poll workers who came forward with separate credible claims of voting irregularities during last month’s election have been terminated, and will not be permitted to participate in next month’s Senate runoff elections, according to a report.

Bridget Thorne and Susan Voyles each told stories of bizarre happenings in Fulton County, which is now the epicenter for voting fraud and irregularity allegations in the Peach State. According to Epoch Media Group, they’ve been rewarded for telling those stories by being fired without much of an explanation.

One would think that Fulton County’s election officials would be toeing the line at this point, considering they’re already being scrutinized by many voters who aren’t buying the election results.

One would also be wrong.

Dwight Brower, an elections consultant for the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections, has created a larger public relations nightmare by apparently letting both women go, just weeks before a pair of Senate runoff elections that will decide which party controls the U.S. Senate.

Brower reportedly informed both whistleblowers in letters that they won’t be around to see any funny business — or anything at all — at the polls next month.

“There are many factors (management skills, performance, actions, behavior, etc.) considered prior to making reappointments for each primary or election. Unfortunately, a decision has been made to not reappoint you in a poll management or other poll positions in Fulton County,” Brower wrote, according to Epoch Media Group.

Oddly, Voyles seems like exactly the kind of person you’d want handling ballots, as she has been doing so for 20 years. Likewise with Thorne, who is a trained voting technician.

Could their firings be in any way related to their accounts of what they said they saw in Georgia’s most populated, heavily Democratic county during the election? We can only speculate, but it looks bad.

Thorne said she was working at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, the site of that mysterious water pipe break which halted vote counting on Nov. 3 and was later reported to be nothing more than a leaky toilet, Fox News reported.

Thorne was in that arena on the night of the election and said she saw mail-in ballots being handed “haphazardly.”

“When [the mail-in ballots] came in from the warehouse, they were haphazardly treated by anybody who wanted to dump the ballots out of the scanner tabulators,” Thorne told Fox News earlier this month, “and there was no oath administered. There weren’t two people present. People were just dumping them in suitcases and then leaving the suitcases on the floor and taking a break for dinner or just quitting the job.”

“I know how precious a ballot is. It’s someone’s vote and it was very disturbing for me to see that,” she also said.

Voyles, like Thorne, had her own story to tell about how disturbed she felt by what she saw. The woman recalled coming across “pristine” and irregular ballots that went almost entirely to Biden in the Fulton County city of Sandy Springs.

Those ballots had “a difference in the texture of the paper — it was if they were intended for absentee use but had not been used for that purposes,” she has said, claiming there “was a difference in the feel.”

Voyles, according to The Epoch Times, also said the ballots in question “included a slight depressed pre-fold so they could be easily folded and unfolded for use in scanning machines.”

“There were no markings on the ballots to show where they had come from, or where they had been processed,” she said. “These stood out.”

“By my estimate in observing these ballots, approximately 98 percent constituted votes for Joseph Biden.”

Both women are now out of a job with very little by way of explanation. The optics of it are of course terrible for Fulton County. So bad, in fact, that even Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger felt compelled to say something about it.

“I condemn in the strongest terms the decision by Fulton County elections officials to fire two poll managers purely for raising concerns about the November elections,” he said in a statement.

“Though we have found no credible evidence of widespread fraud, it is important that individuals can raise their voice when they believe they have seen wrongdoing. Retribution against whistle blowers poses a threat to the continued strength and vibrancy of our democracy.”

Election officials in Fulton County had arguably already lost the confidence of many voters thanks to a complete lack of transparency concerning vote tabulating.

Now, it’s fair to ask whether two veteran poll workers-turned-whistleblowers were fired by the county for daring to question what they perceived as corruption.

Maricopa County Defies Subpoenas, Won’t Even Release Ballot Images for Inspection

H/T Western Journal.

What is the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors hiding?

In a Nov. 22 editorial, The New York Times celebrated just how smoothly the Nov. 3 election went.

“The 2020 election was not simply free of fraud, or whatever cooked-up malfeasance the president is braying about at this hour,” the editorial board said.

“It was, from an administrative standpoint, a resounding success. In the face of a raging pandemic and the highest turnout in more than a century, Americans enjoyed one of the most secure, most accurate and most well-run elections ever.”

Secure! Accurate! Well-run! Just don’t ask to take a second look at how it was run, else you’re one of those cranks braying about malfeasance.

Among those cranks, apparently, are the members of the Arizona state Senate Judiciary Committee, who’ve asked for an audit of Maricopa County’s voting machines and ballots. In fact, they’ve issued subpoenas to that effect, which is a bit more than asking; the state Senate wants to look at the voting machines that were used in the Nov. 3 election as well as images of scanned ballots.

Maricopa County, meanwhile, is saying no thanks.

“The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors did not send the state Senate election materials in response to subpoenas before a 5 p.m. deadline Friday,” the Arizona Republic reported Friday.

“Instead, the supervisors voted 4-1 on Friday to file a court complaint in response, after raising concerns that the state Legislature’s demands are too broad and violate voters’ privacy. Supervisor Steve Chucri cast the opposing vote.

“The complaint, filed in Maricopa County Superior Court on Friday, says the subpoenas are unlawful and asks the court to quash them.”

The county gave three reasons in the complaint: The Senate Judiciary Committee didn’t have the authority to issue the subpoenas, there wasn’t sufficient time to comply with them and they violated Arizona’s ballot secrecy laws.

Now, let’s be clear before we get this ball rolling: There’s almost certainly zero chance this changes any electoral results.

Even though Maricopa County is Arizona’s most populous — after all, it’s home to Phoenix and its suburbs — erasing Joe Biden’s razor-thin 0.3 percentage point win in the state would do little aside from switch 11 electoral votes. Given the national electoral vote, that and $44.99 will get your kid their very own Squeakee the Balloon Dog under the tree this Christmas.

Meanwhile, Democrat Mark Kelly’s win over GOP Sen. Martha McSally wasn’t quite so razor thin; the former astronaut and gun-grabber extraordinaire won by 2.4 points over McSally.

However, the refusal to even look at the accuracy of the vote tallies in Maricopa County, particularly as Republicans have said there were widespread irregularities in the most unusual election in the past century, raises serious questions.

Republicans in the state Senate have argued that an independent audit of the results is needed. However, Maricopa County says its routine audit ended with a 100 percent match, so nothing to see here. The county won’t even release ballot images for inspection, which means we’re going to have to take their word for it.

And it’s not even that Senate Republicans are suggesting, at this point, that looking at Maricopa County’s voting machines would overturn the results of the election.

“The goal is to verify the machines did what they are supposed to do,” GOP Senate President Karen Fann said, according to the Arizona Republic.

“I believe that the county has done the very best they can,” said Republican state Sen. Eddie Farnsworth, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to The Associated Press.

“That doesn’t mean that there aren’t anomalies, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t concerns and it doesn’t mean that the voters aren’t justified in wanting to make sure it was done properly.”

Dr. Kelli Ward, head of the Arizona Republican Party, meanwhile, said that “the county agreed in open court to audit more ballots but it simply decided not to finish doing so.”

The Arizona Republic — normally not a phalange of the liberal media but a solidly pro-Biden organ during this cycle — has meanwhile said that the requests for audits are an attempt by lawmakers “to rally their base by insisting fraud occurred.”

They’re hardly the only ones framing the issue this way, either — and that’s a rubbish take for several reasons.

Yes, there are some Republicans who have concerns about voter fraud. It’s a pretty useless way to “rally the base” by requesting an audit when that audit turns up nothing, however. It’s like a minor-key version of the letdown Democrats felt right after the Mueller report gave them a solid zero-point-zero on the collusion meter.

And yet, Democrats act as if any further examination of the 2020 election would be an insult to democracy.

After Arizona’s electors cast their votes for Biden on Monday, Democratic state Sen. Martin Quezada said “the election that we just had, and the 11 electoral votes that were just cast earlier this morning, were legit,” according to the AP. “They were completely and totally legit. Nobody is hiding anything.”

All right. Then Maricopa County should respond to the subpoenas. Simple as that. If there’s nothing to see in an independent audit, then there’s nothing to be lost by turning the materials over.

There is something to be lost, however, by simply ignoring the order. Farnsworth made it clear an audit would help in “restoring the confidence” in the system after a divisive election, according to the Washington Examiner.

This isn’t a far-reaching effort to try and overturn the results, either: “One subpoena calls for a scanned ballot audit, to collect an electronic ballot image cast for all mail-in ballots counted in the November 2020 general election in Maricopa County, Arizona. The second subpoena calls for a full forensic audit of ballot tabulation equipment, the software for that equipment and the election management system used in the 2020 general election,” Fann said.

If this is a problem, the question becomes why it’s a problem. If there’s nothing to be found, then let us find nothing.Keeping the guts of our electoral machinery behind a curtain and insisting that anyone who wants a longer peek is a conspiracy theorist further erodes our trust in a weather-worn and battered system which has resisted transparency at every turn.

If this was — as The New York Times claimed — “one of the most secure, most accurate and most well-run elections ever,” show the rest of us skeptics.

Prove us wrong. Laugh in our face, Maricopa County. The state Senate is giving you the perfect opportunity, after all.

AZ GOP Chair: When 30% of Democrats Think the Election Was Stolen from Trump, You Know Something’s Wrong

H/T Western Journal.

If the DemocRats steal this election then I am considering doing something I have not done in 48 years of being able to vote and that is quit voting.

I mean what in the Hell is going to stop them from stealing future elections?

The voting public needs to be confident that in our state, and in our nation, we hold free and fair elections. That is why the Arizona Republican Party is doing everything we can to ensure voters trust that a free process leads to fair results.

The media pollsters this cycle were terribly wrong, about which I have written previously. The published polls seemed more like an attempt to discourage Republican voters instead of take the pulse of the electorate.

But while the polling showed one thing, other indicators reflected a sentiment that President Trump had a distinct advantage going into Election Day. Betting odds favored President Trump’s re-election. The Trump campaign had a massive grassroots mobilization effort including phone calling and boots-on-the-ground door knocking.

While the Biden-Harris camp hid behind the shadow of the coronavirus as a reason to barely campaign, President Trump held massive rallies across many states where people turned out in spite of pandemic fears. In contrast, the Biden campaign struggled to mobilize any sort of crowds, even socially isolated in vehicles.

Even in overwhelmingly blue states such as California and New York, Biden received 64 and 61 percent of the vote respectively. Yet they are expected to accept that 76 percent of mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania favored Joe Biden?

That sounds fair to the same media that would have us believe so-called statisticians such as Nate Silver, who predicted Trump had a 36 percent chance of winning North Carolina this year. All along, the Trump camp was predicting a tight election with the president eventually prevailing.

The American public is tired of being deceived by so-called news outlets more concerned with their narrative than the facts. These are the outlets that showed graphics detailing the “fiery but mostly peaceful protests” while the scene over the reporter’s shoulder showed cars on fire and violent unrest.

These same producers and reporters are asking us to believe that the lackluster Joe Biden received millions of more votes than Barack Obama, the most inspirational Democratic presidential candidate of this generation. That is a tough sell.

Rasmussen, one of the few pollsters to show accuracy this cycle, conducted a post-election poll. Two weeks before the election, 94 percent of voters expressed confidence that their vote would be correctly recorded and counted, with 73 percent saying it was “very likely.” After the election, that number dropped to 71 percent overall and only 47 percent “very likely.”

That is a serious drop, and it’s indicative of deeper concern in the electorate than is being adequately respected by the public at large.

If you think this is a problem isolated to Republicans, think again. Thirty percent of Democrats (20 percent “very likely,” 10 percent “somewhat likely”) believe the election was stolen from Trump. Those are not all Trump voters; if 30 percent of Democrats had voted for Trump it would have been a massive landslide for the president.

As Willis Krumholz at The Federalist pointed out, American voters on both sides of the aisle mistrust the fundamental integrity of our elections.

A 2018 Gallup poll showed 78 percent of Democrats still believed that Russia interfered in the 2016 election and changed the outcome. This is despite years of investigations that only managed to show a $100,000 social media buy which would have had no chance of changing the election.

This year, Republicans have a sinking feeling in their stomach about the 2020 election. They see anomalies similar to those observers saw in the Gabon elections in 2016.

After the 2016 and 2018 elections, the media gladly reported the accusations of Hillary Clinton and Stacey Abrams. Yet today, anyone asking to look into the 2020 election process is deemed unworthy of attention, and worse, worthy of ridicule.

But in the weeks after Election Day, we’ve spoken with concerned Republicans about their unease. These aren’t the politically involved, but the rank-and-file supporters who show up on Election Day and live their lives devoid of politics the rest of the time. They don’t show up for rallies or join in with the #HashtagActivism on social media.

They’re now openly wondering if we have sunk to the level of third-world countries in how we administer our elections, however.

In the days after the election, we’ve sought to ensure people trust our process, this year and every year. That should not be a partisan goal. Many changes were made to our electoral processes this year using the pandemic as an excuse. Following up with simple yet effective cross-checks is not too much to ask as we try to boost voter confidence.

GA Law Enforcement Officials Say Warnock, Ossoff Will Undermine Police

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

Ossoff and Warnock represent the radical left and would push to defund the police nationwide.

‘The safety of this entire country is at stake’

Top Georgia law enforcement officials and groups are expressing “serious concern” with Jon Ossoff’s and Raphael Warnock’s Senate bids, claiming that the pair of Democrats will push to defund police and hinder officers’ ability to serve.

Ossoff and Warnock have faced criticism over a number of anti-police comments. Ossoff in June expressed the need to hold “entire departments accountable,” arguing that police funding “has to be … on the line” if officers violate his proposed use-of-force rules. And in a series of 2015 sermons, Warnock accused police of operating with a “gangster and thug” mentality, adding that he was not surprised to see officers act like “bullies.” Georgia Fraternal Order of Police secretary Steven Gaynor told the Washington Free Beacon that the Senate hopefuls have done little to reassure law enforcement of their support.

“We really need law enforcement. We need them to be out there to protect our citizens,” Gaynor said. “So we have a serious concern over the defunding push and the statements being made from both candidates.”

The Georgia Democrats have scrambled to distance themselves from the defund police movement in the wake of Democratic congressional losses in November. Top party officials—including President-elect Joe Biden—warn activists that the call to “change policing” could alienate Peach State voters. Many top law enforcement officials across the state, however, have found the Democrats’ rhetorical shift unconvincing. During a Tuesday press conference, a group of Georgia sheriffs accused Ossoff and Warnock of working to “make it easier for the criminal element.”

“The safety of this entire country is at stake,” Gwinnett County sheriff Butch Conway said. “All we’ve heard for months from the Democratic Party is ‘defund the police.’ I understand Joe Biden’s talking the other way now, not wanting to talk about defunding the police until after this election, but that doesn’t change anything.”

Ossoff did not return a request for comment. Warnock campaign spokesman Terrence Clark told the Free Beacon that Warnock does not support defunding police and accused his Republican opponent—Sen. Kelly Loeffler—of “attacking Reverend Warnock with lies to distract from her record.”

Conway also argued that Ossoff would make communities less safe due to his refusal to enforce immigration laws at the local level. Ossoff in June appeared to endorse so-called sanctuary cities, saying that local police should not enforce federal immigration law as it weakens the “bonds of trust between local law enforcement and local communities.” Conway denounced the position, noting that his department has worked with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to identify more than 800 illegal immigrants housed in county jail during his tenure. The cooperation has allowed the county to avoid “turning criminals back into the community that shouldn’t be in the country to begin with,” according to Conway.

“Many of those inmates had been arrested more than one time, some many times,” Conway said. “The cost to process an inmate is high—it has saved millions of dollars for Gwinnett.”

 

Cherokee County sheriff Frank Reynolds and Walton County sheriff Joe Chapman also attended Tuesday’s press conference. Chapman accused Ossoff and Warnock of working to “change the way we live” and “make it harder” for police to keep Georgia communities safe.

In total, at least 93 Georgia sheriffs have endorsed Ossoff’s opponent, Republican senator David Perdue. The state’s Fraternal Order of Police has also endorsed both Perdue and Loeffler. Ossoff’s and Warnock’s campaign sites, meanwhile, show no endorsements from state police officials.

Ossoff and Warnock will face Perdue and Loeffler, respectively, on Jan. 5. Early voting in the state is already underway.

Updated 8:32 a.m.: This article was updated with comment from the Warnock campaign.

Game-Changing Video Shows Blank GA Ballots Turned Into Votes Using Dominion Machine

H/T Western Journal.

Hopefully this is the smoking gun needed for the courts to hear this case.

Two recently released videos seem to reveal a possible method of voter fraud using Dominion Voting System software.

Filmed by a Georgia county election supervisor, the videos demonstrate serious security flaws within Dominion’s adjudication process. The company’s machines were used in Georgia and other states during the still-contested November general election.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is leading President Donald Trump’s legal fight over alleged voter fraud and irregularities, presented the videos while appearing before a Georgia state House committee on Thursday, according to Fox News.

In the videos, Misty Martin, elections director of Coffee County, gives a step-by-step demonstration of how this fraud could have taken place.

In the first video, Martin walks through the process, which involves election supervisors analyzing ballots that were unable to be scanned into the Dominion machines.

The process is meant to authenticate ballots, determining whether they should be processed for a particular candidate or thrown out due to discrepancies such as over-voting (voting for more than one candidate).

Martin seemingly demonstrated in the video, however, that an election official can simply use Dominion’s software to process any ballot however he or she sees fit.

Trump votes could be turned into votes for his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, or vice versa. Blank ballots could be attributed to any candidate.

Essentially, election supervisors would have the power to use this system to create votes from nothing.

In the second video, the camera is taken outside what is presumably an office for election supervisors, illustrating that poll observers would not be able to tell exactly what is going on if they were made to stand outside of the office.

Gabriel Sterling, Georgia’s voting systems implementation manager, criticized Martin’s demonstration during a briefing at the Georgia Capitol on Thursday, according to Georgia Public Broadcasting.

According to Sterling, the process Martin showed is meant to be performed during the adjudication process in the presence of a full voter review panel with the system logging the changes and showing who made them for later review.

“I can go in the street and shoot someone, that would be against the law,” Sterling said. “What she was doing would be against the law, if she did that. So it’s a little disingenuous to say, ‘Oh, it’s a massive hole in the system.’ No, it’s how the system is supposed to work.”

Regardless, it is clear that the Dominion system is set up in a way that allows election officials to change contested votes however they see fit.

The number of ballots sent through the adjudication process was significant.

In Fulton County, Georgia’s most populous county, 106,000 ballots were adjudicated by the night of Nov. 4, according to NBC News.

That’s 106,000 votes in one county in a race where Biden received about 12,000 more votes than Trump across all of Georgia.

Maybe all of those adjudications were legitimate. Maybe some weren’t.

Either way, these videos seem to demonstrate Dominion software could be used to create votes from nothing.

No matter whether this had any effect on the election, no one person should have that much power — not even an election supervisor.

Report: Cuomo Among Contenders for Biden’s Attorney General Pick

H/T Western Journal.

God help us if Little Andy Cuomo becomes Attorney General.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is one of several contenders under consideration by presumptive president-elect Joe Biden for the role of attorney general, a person with knowledge of the selection process said Friday.

The other three contenders at the moment include former Alabama Sen. Doug Jones, federal appeals court judge Merrick Garland and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, according to the person, who added that no decision had been reached and no announcement was expected imminently.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press.

The Associated Press reported earlier in the week that Jones, who lost his Senate seat last month, and Garland had emerged as the two front-runners for Justice Department head.

Spokespeople for Cuomo did not immediately return emails seeking comment on Friday.

It was not clear to what extent the disclosure this week that federal prosecutors were investigating the finances of Biden’s son, Hunter, might have affected the attorney general selection process considering that the chosen person will inherit the probe.

It was also not immediately clear how seriously Cuomo was being considered.

A former state attorney general and Housing and Urban Development secretary in the Clinton administration, Cuomo has been governor of New York since 2011.

 
 
 
 

House Republicans Demand Special Counsel Investigation Into Election Fraud

H/T Western Journal.

I hope President Trump does appoint a special counsel to investigate election fraud.

A group of Republican congressmen on Wednesday urged President Donald Trump to order a Justice Department investigation into possible election irregularities.

The Republican congressmen asked Trump in a letter to direct Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to head the investigation.

Reps. Lance Gooden, Paul Gosar, Louie Gohmert, Scott Perry and Jody Hice were among the 27 congressmen who signed the letter.

“The American people deserve a definitive resolution to the uncertainty hovering over the outcome of our election, but legitimate questions of voter fraud remain unanswered,” the congressmen wrote.

Barr has said that the Department of Justice has yet to find any evidence of election fraud that could sway the result of the election.

“The Department of Justice has been asked on multiple occasions to launch an investigation into this matter, but inaction from the Department along with public comments made by the Attorney General indicate a lack of willingness to investigate the irregularities your campaign and other elected officials across the nation have alleged,” the Republican congressmen continued.

“The appointment of a Special Counsel would establish a team of investigators whose sole responsibility is to uncover the truth and provide the certainty America needs,” they added.

Trump’s campaign has filed numerous lawsuits alleging widespread fraud, but many of them have been rejected in courts across the country.

Texas filed a new lawsuit on Tuesday against Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, accusing the states of altering their election procedures illegally.

“Our Country stands at an important crossroads,” the lawsuit said. “Either the Constitution matters and must be followed, even when some officials consider it inconvenient or out of date, or it is simply a piece of parchment on display at the National Archives.”

“We ask the Court to choose the former,” it continued.
