Fulton County doubles down

 It's a bold move, Cotton. Wonder how that's going to work out for them?

The Fulton County Board of Elections just recertified its results in the presidential election after the recount despite the CCTV video footage that was presented at the hearing in front of the Georgia state legislature yesterday.

At this point, they're just openly daring the God-Emperor to cross the Rubicon. And frankly, given the size and scope of the corruption, I think that's the optimal option now.

To quote the great man himself, "what is the Supreme Court?"

The South China Sea is now off-limits

China has successfully tested its ground-based carrier killer against a moving ship.

Adm. Philip Davidson, who is nearing the end of his tour as the head of U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, has been warning about the changing military balance in Asia throughout his tenure. But his warnings have often fallen on deaf ears in a Washington mired in partisanship and dysfunction. The Trump administration talked a big game about meeting the challenge of China’s military encroachment, but Davidson’s calls for substantially more investment to restore the regional balance that has deterred Beijing for decades have gone largely unanswered.

China’s military has moved well past a strategy of simply defending its territory and is now modernizing with the objective of being able to operate and even fight far from its shores, Davidson told me in an interview conducted last month for the 2020 Halifax International Security Forum. Under President Xi Jinping, Davidson said, China has built advanced weapons systems, platforms and rocket forces that have altered the strategic environment in ways the United States has not sufficiently responded to.

“We are seeing great advances in their modernization efforts,” he said. “China will test more missiles, conventional and nuclear associated missiles this year than every other nation added together on the planet. So that gives you an idea of the scale of how these things are changing.”

Davidson confirmed, for the first time from the U.S. government side, that China’s People’s Liberation Army has successfully tested an anti-ship ballistic missile against a moving ship. This was done as part of the PLA’s massive joint military exercises, which have been ongoing since the summer. These are often called “aircraft carrier killer” missiles, because they could threaten the United States’ most significant naval assets from long distances.

“It’s an indication that they continue to advance their capability. We’ve known for years they’ve been in pursuit of a capability that could attack moving targets,” Davidson said. I asked him whether they are designed to target U.S. aircraft carriers. “Trust me, they are targeting everything,” he replied.

The Chinese Navy doesn't yet possess the blue water capability to take on the U.S. Navy. But the combination of mini-bases constructed on real and artificial islands, combined with the anti-ship missiles, should suffice to deny the U.S. Navy operating space in its expanded home waters without facing unacceptable risks.

Which means that a move on Taiwan is rapidly becoming conceivably practical for the first time since end of WWII.

Magic Dirt: a correction

Unlike Nature, The New York Times, and many other publications, The Other McCain doesn't hesitate to correct his neologistic history in his article on Planners and Their Plans:

CORRECTION: “Magic Dirt Theory” is a phrase coined by Vox Day, specifically referring to the belief of open-borders enthusiasts “that all immigrants will magically become Real Americans, real life nephews of their Uncle Sam, reborn on the Fourth of July by virtue of geographical relocation, thereby instantly negating of all of their racial, ethnic, religious, political, and cultural traditions.”

While I've never been concerned with conceptual credit, I do understand that the assiduous avoidance of properly crediting me and other dangerous badthinkers by the mainstream media is part and parcel of their attempt to render us invisible to the mainstream. While they can't stop the stronger ideas from eventually percolating through into the culture, they can at least prevent us from being anointed Important Public Intellectuals in favor of lesser thinkers like the laughable Richard Dawkins, the lunatic occultist Jordan Peterson, and the utterly unoriginal propagandist Ben Shapiro, to say nothing of the diverse nonentities who can barely construct a coherent sentence in the process of regurgitating the latest social justice pieties.

That's why corrections like Robert McCain's are important, and why it is a good idea to call out mistaken and omitted attributions. Because these mis- and non-attributions are simply another form of media gatekeeping.

When one contemplates how my historical argument contra the atheist meme "religion causes war" destroyed it to the extent that virtually no one even tries to appeal to that once-popular argument pushed by Messrs. Harris and Dawkins anymore, one can perhaps begin to understand why the intellectual gatekeeping is so assiduous. But the truth has a way of routing around its would-be imprisoners; with zero advertising, zero social media presence, and the full weight of Big Tech thrown against it, this blog nevertheless had 5.7 million pageviews last month and is currently on track for 7 million more in December.

NSPM #13 invoked

NC Scout explains some of the strangely specific language utilized by the President in his historic speech on December 2nd on American Partisan:

Ask yourself this question: What was the purpose of yesterday’s White House speech about election fraud and vote rigging?

If you think it was all about Trump communicating to the people, think again. This speech was really about Trump communicating with Chris Miller and the DoD about foreign interference in the U.S. election while laying out the key national security justifications that are necessary to invoke what I’m calling the “national security option” for defending the United States against an attempted cyber warfare coup....

About 30 minutes into the speech, he invokes legal language that clearly references Trump’s Sep. 12, 2018 executive order which describes remedies for foreign interference in U.S. elections. Here’s what Trump says:

The only conceivable reason why you would block commonsense measures to verify legal eligibility for voting, is you are trying to encourage, enable, solicit or carry out fraud. It is important for Americans to understand that these destructive changes to our election laws were NOT a necessary response to the pandemic. The pandemic simply gave the Democrats an excuse to do what they were trying to do with many many years.

Note carefully the phrase, “…trying to encourage, enable, solicit or carry out fraud.”

Where have we heard something very similar before? In the 2018 EO, which describes who will be subjected to having all their assets seized by the United States government — and note that this applies to corporations, individuals, partnerships and even non-profits: (emphasis added)

Sec. 2. a (ii) to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of, any activity described in subsection (a)(i)

Sec. 2. a (i) to have directly or indirectly engaged in, sponsored, concealed, or otherwise been complicit in foreign interference in a United States election;

Thus, Trump just invoked the 2018 EO and sent an undeniable signal to Chris Miller at the DoD (as well as many other groups) that the Democrats, the treasonous media and the complicit Big Tech giants have all engaged in concealing, advocating or supporting “foreign interference” in the U.S. election.

It was also a clear warning to the Supreme Court and the state legislatures. If they don't do their duty, the President will, and he has firmly established the legal grounds for his doing so. But what may be the most encouraging aspect of the article is the way the author traces the legal establishment of the cyber warfare infrastructure used to observe and record the 2020 election sting back to September 2018.

What we now know with absolute certainty is that Trump, Miller, Cohen-Watnick and other key players put the cyber warfare infrastructure in place in 2018 that would allow them to unleash a domestic military response to arrest, detain and prosecute all those who were complicit in the attack on America.

Team Trump has voting machine

BREAKING: Trump team now has a Dominion machine from Ware County, #Georgia with EVIDENCE of Trump votes being switched to Biden. Source: John Fredericks on Steve Bannon War Room

From the transcript:

He's got a Dominion machine that they were able to do a forensic study on in Ware County it's a small [Georgia] county. He's got evidence that this machine has flipped the votes. They flipped votes, they flipped 37 votes in Ware County - he's got the evidence - from Donald J. Trump to Joe Biden.

Now 37 doesn't seem like a lot of votes, but it's a very small county. It represents just over 0.25, actually 0.26 [percent] of the total votes cast.

30k ballots scanned multiple times

The case is now conclusively proven. The election fraud was massive and widespread.

A contractor for Dominion Voting Systems, who worked at Detroit's TCF Center on Election Day, has told Michigan lawmakers that she saw roughly 30,000 ballots being scanned multiple times by the counting machines. The contractor, Mellissa Carone, who works as a freelance IT professional, made the allegations Wednesday night before a panel of Michigan House Oversight Committee members.

Carone was at the Detroit center early on Election Day, Nov. 3, until about 4 the next morning. She also returned to the site later on Nov. 4.

On November 10, Carone said in an affidavit that she witnessed "nothing but fraudulent actions take place. I observed numerous employees, city workers, running batches of ballots through the tabulators countless times, without discarding them first," Carone said during the Wednesday evening hearing.

She testified next to Rudy Giuliani, the personal attorney to President Trump, who has been leading most of the litigations efforts pertaining to the election. Carone testified that on Election Day, the vote tabulating machines would jam up to three times an hour. When the machines would jam, election officials were supposed to reset the count on the machines to ensure that no ballots were scanned more than once, explained the witness.

"Instead of discarding, they were just rescanning, rescanning, rescanning. Counting ballots nine to 10 times," Carone said. She also said there were more than 20 tabulating machines at her ballot counting center. 

The ballots were meant to be counted in batches of 50, though, Carone noted that she observed the tabulation count climb well into the hundreds multiple times throughout the day. 

"I called my manager to a specific tabulating machine and I showed him a number on it that was over 500. They shouldn’t be over 50. Ballots come in batches of 50. I said that we have a severe problem here Nick," said Carone, of her attempt to notify her manager about the issue. "He [Nick] said, ‘Melissa I don’t want to hear that we have a problem, we are here to assist with IT, we are not here to run their election.’ And at that point, I was really frustrated and upset, I could tell what was going on," she continued. "They were cheating. It was very, very apparent."

Statistical evidence. Forensic computer evidence. Eyewitness evidence. Documentary evidence. Multiple attempts to destroy physical evidence. 

The courts and the legislatures can stop this shameless sedition and attempted coup. But if they don't, the President will. #crosstherubicon

What evidence?

Seen on Twitter:

17,327 people who voted in Michigan have OBITUARIES.

Speaking only for myself, I would say that an obituary is conclusive evidence of vote fraud. And over 17 thousand obituaries qualify as "widespread" vote fraud. Especially in light of how more than 14,000 dead people are reported to have voted in Wayne County alone.

Mailvox: when gammas gamma

Gammas are going to gamma, especially when you don't show due reverence for their Very Important Opinions. After being told to take a hike yesterday, this is an excerpt - yes, an excerpt - from the totally unexpected wall of text that inevitably came in response.

I don't have, and never had, any "mistaken impressions", one way or t'other, especially RE  some innocuous blog and blogger I don't know, don't give a s/h/i/t about, is one of a billion bloggers in cyberspace, is both arrogant and narcississtic, and fancies himself some sort of author, publisher, blogger, and musician.  I don't even know what the hell you meant by that. 

 ... augh ... no matter.  

Ya wanna talk music?  I've been on Atlantic Records ... twice.  Your labels ... I had to look up.  

Ya wanna talk Stoogle?  I'm an ~36+ year IT veteran, have travelled the world, and built some of the largest networks YOU access.  I've had offers from Stoogle, MicroSoft, amazon, Cisco, and many of the other big tech deep state sellouts.  I've worked for IBM, RockWell, HoneyWell, Johnson Controls, Johnson Wax, and a s/h/i/tload of other world class heavyweights.  Besides a full-time music career AND a full-time IT career, ie, leading a f/u/c/king double life since ~23 that has allowed me only a max of ~4 hours sleep a night since ~17 year old, I have clawed my way up to Director status at any number of the enterprises I've worked at.  Musically, I've performed with major symphonies, been on grand stages, been on television, music-bedded movies, and even have been asked to sit in and tour and play the same stages with major groups like The Temptations, Kansas, BadFinger, and others.  

Point is, I've EXPERIENCED private sector corporate deep state FROM THE INSIDE.  I know what the f/u/c/k I'm talking about, from the inside.  

I work hard, just like it appears you do, and my time is extremely valuable, just like yours'.  If I visit your blog, I deem it worthy enough to spend a little of my time at.  It amazes me how any businessman with your attitude can keep blog readers, sell books, or sell music or video games.  Even if you were Dickens, Twain, or Shakespeare, I wouldn't buy your s/h/i/t knowing the attitude behind it, ie, in the end, you really could care less about your readership, listeners, customers, etc.  Your F/U/C/K OFF to me proves that.  

... and, to be frank, some of your s/h/i/t looks pretty interesting.  It's just that attitude that spoils it for me ...  

You fancy yourself some kind of author and publisher and musician and blogger and want to sell product.  Yet you tell me to F/U/C/K OFF.  Great PR.  

Most of what you've penned over the years I've agreed with, for the most part, although you ARE a narcississtic arrogant cuss ... which I'm not quite sure where I stand on that topic simply because I, myself, am arrogant, but do not cross over to narcississm.  Just the opposite.  Many times I've been praised for work that I never thought was good enough.  

All I'm penning is that, thematically, philosophically, et al, you appear anti-deep-state-anti-globalist, and then tighten indirect censoring, just like "they" tighten direct censoring.  

I don't give a s/h/i/t either if I COMMENT or not at your or any other web site no more than I give a s/h/i/t if your site gets shut down or not.  What you don't get is I'm half on your side, you j/a/c/k/a/s/s.  Your f/u/c/king arrogance could be bottled.  Lose the attitude, s/h/i/t.  It is blinding and deafening to you.  Like Ann Barnhardt ... good intentions, off-putting presentation.  

How the hell are you not part of the problem when you talk out of two sides of your f/u/c/king mouth is beyond me, ie, you are philosophically conservative and yet capitulate to deep state s/h/i/t like Stoogle.  I'll bet you even use Google docs and other apps as well.  Rail against deep state surveillance and then put yourself exactly in the position to be surveilled.  I mean, wow ... just wow.  

You have enough sycophants COMMENTing, I've noticed, praising you up and down, to pad and satisfy that massive ego of yours'.  Becoming euphemistically dumb, fat, happy, and complacent with the status quo when there is work to do, more than just words, is just wrong.  If I'm not making myself clear enough, YOU NEED TO PRIVATIZE YOUR BLOG.  "Not fixin' what ain't broken" is a lazy man's excuse out.  Unless you, like ZeroHedge, are a sellout to clickbait, or have some alternative agenda.  I don't know.  You are correct in your #1 ... I DON'T know your business.  Don't care.  But if you pen to me that it is none of my business, there is probably more there than meets the eye.  What IS my business is what deep state and its tech complicitors are doing to me and mine in my country.  That IS my business.  And one is either part of the problem or part of the solution.  It IS that black and white.  As Christ said, " ... you're either with Me or against Me ... ".  It IS that simple and that black and white.  

You know d/a/m/n well, just like I do, you can download WordPress open source and locally host your own blog, answering to NO ONE but yourself, on your own hardware, software, and static IP(s), infrastructured to encrypt through any ISP so they cannot know anything about your traffic flowing through them, traffic that YOU pay for and is none of their f/u/c/king business although they illegally and unConstitutionally make it their business.  Even CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE, as you probably know, just got booted off web-based WordPress and are in the process of switching to another web-based "platform" (their words), ie, blog hoster ("platform" is the WRONG nomenclature, "platform"s in IT refer to base configurations hosting other configurations, ie, porting from a UNIX "platform" to a non-POSIX-based "platform", et al).  IOW, CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE is just "kicking the can down the road", "jumping from the frying pan into the fire".  I mean, don't they know, based upon their vociferous content, it's just a matter of time and it's just gonna happen to them again?!  You people shake your fist at your demanding Father but, in the end, go out and mow the lawn anyways.  You fix a symptom and fail to kill the disease.  

FYI, I am so far to the right, I'm off the cliff.  So if you think I'm some kind of deep state troll, SJW, or liberal wack ... like I penned before, I'm half on your side.  I just cannot stand your attitude ... and never could.  Lose it.  

You ain't the legend in your own time (or even your own mind) you think you are.  

And lemme tell you somethin' else ... you SHOULD give a s/h/i/t whether I or anyone else DOES COMMENT.  So should I.  If you don't give a damn, what's the point?!  Sycophants are easy, cheap, painless, and worthless.  It's people like me you really need to listen to, if you can get past your arrogance and narcississm to realize that.

I tend to doubt my succinct reply to this textbook gammalogue will surprise any regular reader here.

What part of "fuck off" was hard for you to understand?

The people sue the governor

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA

COMPLAINT FOR DECLARATORY, EMERGENCY, AND PERMANENT INJUNCTIVE RELIEF

Plaintiffs v. DOUG DUCEY, in his official capacity as Governor of the State of Arizona, and KATIE HOBBS, in her official capacity as the Arizona Secretary of State, Defendants.

District of Arizona admission scheduled for 12/9/2020

It won't do any good, even though it absolutely should. But it, and many other similar legal actions, will retroactively justify the actions that the God-Emperor appears on the verge of taking. Once it is sufficiently clear that the courts and the legislatures have completely failed to perform their constitutional duties, the President will perform his.

Outside the normality box

How Pompeius Magnus, Cato, and the Roman Senate were taken so completely by surprise by Julius Caesar's decision to cross the Rubicon with a single legion that wasn't even his best or his most loyal. Now, at long last, I finally understand, thanks in part to this random comment from Twitter, posted in response to President Trump's speech on December 2nd.

We are seeing the last desperate flailings of a truly frightened and trapped animal.  He knows what is waiting for him on the other side of Biden's inauguration - humiliation in front of the whole world, many civil lawsuits, State and Federal charges, asset seizure and prison.

Is that how the speech struck any of you? Because it certainly didn't sound that way to me. But given the way it almost certainly reflects the attitudes of both the Establishment and the conservative political elite, which is that President Trump wouldn't dare depart from the current norms concerning respect for the public perception of democracy created by the media narrative, I don't think any of them are even remotely prepared for what now appears to be the most probable outcome.

The courts have been warned. The legislators have been warned. But I don't think they are listening to the warnings, any more than a big tech company listens even when it is bombarded by hundreds of notices from its users, because they simply don't believe that anyone will dare to think, let alone step, outside the normality box.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP STATEMENT ON ELECTION 12-2-202

This may be the most important speech I've ever made.... As President, I have no higher duty than to defend the laws and the  Constitution of the United States. That's why I am determined to protect our election system, which is now under coordinated assault and siege.

Translation: He is not going to rely upon the courts or the state legislatures to do the right thing. He is well aware that they cannot be relied upon.

The full text of the God-Emperor's epic, and potentially history-making, speech follows after the jump.

Supreme Court now has option on PA

Pretty soon we should learn if the Supreme Court will decide if it wants to decide the presidential election or not:

An effort to overturn the presidential election results in Pennsylvania made its way to the Supreme Court Tuesday. Republican Rep. Mike Kelly, R-Pa., and others, including Sean Parnell, contend state officials had no right under the Pennsylvania Constitution to expand mail-in voting in 2019, and the state Supreme Court was wrong to uphold that statute. The group called it “an unconstitutional, no-excuse absentee voting scheme.”

“Pennsylvania’s General Assembly exceeded its powers by unconstitutionally allowing no-excuse absentee voting, including for federal offices, in the election,” the challengers argued in court papers. As a result, the election was “conducted illegally.”

The group seeks an emergency injunction from the nation’s highest court to block the completion of any remaining steps in the state’s certification of Pennsylvania’s 2020 election results, which took place last week. The petition was submitted to Associate Justice Samuel Alito. The court will now decide whether to take the case.

Don't get too worked up over this one way or the other. The Supreme Court is merely the backup plan in the likely event that the state officials don't heed the President's warnings and do the right thing. And there is a backup to the backup plan that may, in fact, be the primary plan given the way in which so many have repeatedly chosen to ignore the warnings they have been given.

UPDATE: Speaking of the backup to the backup plan:

A week after receiving his pardon from President Donald Trump, former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn promoted a call for the president to “temporarily suspend the Constitution” and put the country under martial law.

I'll take Things I Don't Miss for $200

What is Minneapolis?

Minneapolis has suffered a surge in crime that has coincided with a severe shortage of police officers. Undeterred, City Council members want to make further cuts to law enforcement.

Police have registered a 537-percent increase in violent carjackings in the city compared with last November, the local Star Tribune reported. More than 125 such crimes have been recorded over the past two months, with three separate carjackings reported within a one-hour period on Saturday morning. One of the victims, an elderly woman, was struck on the head by her assailants. 

“The numbers are staggering,” a Minneapolis police spokesperson told the paper. “It defies all civility and any shred of common human decency.”

Authorities have blamed the crime wave on “small groups of marauding teens,” but acknowledged that adults have also been arrested in connection to the string of carjackings. The surge in this type of attack has prompted the city’s police force to create a new coding system to help keep track of the criminal acts. The spree of carjackings isn’t the only public safety crisis facing the city: An analysis by the Star Tribune in September found that violent crimes – including homicide, rape, robbery and aggravated assaults – were up 17 percent from the previous five-year average for this period....

Despite the crime surge and personnel shortage, a trio of City Council members, including Council President Lisa Bender, have submitted a proposal that would cut the Minneapolis police budget by nearly $8 million. 

If you think diversity is bad in your community now, just wait until it is in a position to take over and start running things. It really shouldn't surprise anyone that rule by third worlders, even if only by SJW proxy, looks suspiciously like the Third World.

UPDATE: an email from a Minneapolis resident.

One of my employees got carjacked last night at gunpoint when pulling into her parking garage down by Loring Park in Minneapolis. Stole her Mercedes, company laptop, and one client file. She’s ok, extremely shaken up. Minneapolis is totally out of control. Happening every day now, sometimes three per day. They tracked car on Mercedes app from her phone, police chased them twice, found them walking. One had car key fob in their pocket; police told her they could not prosecute based on this. Said if she wanted to pursue fingerprinting of her car, it would take weeks, and they’d need to keep it for that duration, due to being backed up in police department. Physically, she’s ok, mentally, she’s a wreck. Fuckers are going to walk.

It’s much worse than it even seems.  When I go downtown for meetings, it has to be before noon and still it’s an eerie & dangerous place.

Mailvox: just go away

A would-be commenter completely fails to understand that I don't give a fraction of an ioto of an airborne rodent's posterior if he comments here or not.

Can you tell me why the hell you now demand COMMENTs be filtered through a Google, ie, .gov/CIA/NSA Stoogle, sign-in?  What the hell is up with that?  Stoogle, FaceCrook, et al, are all .gov/CIA/NSA creations via In-Q-Tel. 

 Where the hell do you REALLY stand? Are you controlled opposition? 

 Or are YOU being forced because BlogSpot = Stoogle?  Did Google force you to comply, like ZeroHedge, at the risk of shutting you down, like WordPress did to Conservative TreeHouse, or, like ZeroHedge, pulling all ad revenue?  Hedge is now massively censoring COMMENTs and only leaves COMMENTs available for reading ~48 hours, then the COMMENTs disappear forever.  If one doesn't locally store such info, all is lost forever.  These are just SOME of the capitulations Hedge betrayed to keep the Stoogle ad revenue flowing.  I mean, REALLY?!  I guess cash is king, even above patriotism, loyalty, and allegiance.  But look who I'm writing at, a guy who ran away to Italy.  Believe me, BELIEVE ME, I sympathize with what they did to your Father, and they SHOULD PAY, but running away to live in a different Country is NOT the answer.  Just like ZeroHedge sellling out was not the answer, although those sellout doofuses are not of original USofA to begin with so, like most transplant imports, they just came to the US to exploit all they could get from her, just like the H1B hadji curry-munchers. 

 I cannot COMMENT unless I open a and log in via a Stoogle account?! 

C'mon, Vox, gimme an answer ... and you're f/u/c/king better than that ... at least you appear to be, anyways.  But how the hell do I know, any more. Nothing is as it appears any more. TRUST has left the building.

My response:

  1. It's none of your business. You appear to be under the very mistaken impression that I answer to you.
  2. Because this blog has been on Blogger since 2003. If it's not broken, I don't fix it.
  3. I used to allow fully anonymous comments. Trolls and spam made that impossible. This is how we ensure the comment section is functional.
  4. I don't care if you comment or not.
  5. Fuck off.

The idea that I am "controlled opposition" or that I am concerned about protecting my nonexistent ad revenue is risible. Sundar Pichai, in particular, would find it amusing. I am, as was revealed in the James D'Amour v. Google lawsuit, one of the very few individuals who is specifically banned by name from setting foot on Google's Mountain View campus, and quite possibly from their other offices as well. Pichai himself cancelled a company-wide meeting out of the very reasonable fear that I would pull a James O'Keefe on him.

Which, of course, is precisely what would have happened. I know exactly what Google knows about me and they know I don't care at all. And they also know that I know an awful lot about their organization. So, if they want to make me ridiculously wealthy by giving me an excuse to sue them in a European court, the Legal Legion is more than ready to take on legal geniuses like their former Chief Legal Officer, David Drummond.

This blog will be here until either a) I stop blogging altogether, b) Google decides to roll the dice, or c) Google offers me sufficient monetary incentive to move it elsewhere. And if you don't like that, I truly don't care.

Project Veritas busts CNN

 James O'Keefe has done it again:

CNN has reported Project Veritas founder James O'Keefe to police over his latest undercover investigation in which he secretly recorded network president Jeff Zucker's morning conference calls 'for months.'  

O'Keefe, 36, on Tuesday announced he was releasing audio recordings of several network meetings which he claims will 'expose' Zucker and other CNN executives expressing their 'political biases'. 

The calls O'Keefe had been listening to over two months are the network's daily 9am editorial meeting with senior staff from CNN's main bureaus, which is run by Zucker. 

The move by Project Veritas is the latest sting operation orchestrated against the news station by the conservative operative who has long-targeted CNN over claims of liberal and anti-Trump bias.

I don't think the police will be particularly interested, given the laws that govern phone call recordings. Project Veritas is based in New York and CNN is based in Georgia. And it's not an illegal wiretap to dial in to a conference call with the correct access code.

  • New York's wiretapping law is a "one-party consent" law. New York makes it a crime to record to record or eavesdrop on an in-person or telephone conversation unless one party to the conversation consents. 
  • Georgia's wiretapping law is a "one-party consent" law for purposes of making audio recordings of conversations. 
Unless O'Keefe kidnapped a CNN employee and drove him across state lines before torturing him to get the access code to the daily call out of him, it's unlikely that any crimes were committed.

Swamp activates AG Barr?

This is either 4D strategery by the white hats or pure desperation on the part of the Deep State, which is rapidly running out of assets to activate:

Disputing President Donald Trump’s persistent, baseless claims, Attorney General William Barr declared Tuesday the U.S. Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election.

Barr’s comments, in an interview with the The Associated Press, contradict the concerted effort by Trump, his boss, to subvert the results of last month’s voting and block President-elect Joe Biden from taking his place in the White House.

Barr told the AP that U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been working to follow up specific complaints and information they’ve received, but “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

While it's certainly true the Justice Department has steadfastly refused to see any evil or evidence, that's only because they are making the proverbial Three Monkeys look like the Three Investigators. Now, about those "baseless claims"....

New election fraud whistleblowers came forward on Tuesday, including one who witnessed the shipping of an estimated 144,000-288,000 completed ballots across three state lines on October 21.

The new information was made public at a press conference by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, a national constitutional litigation organization. At the press conference, it was announced that they have contacted law enforcement about their findings.

Evidence provided by the whistleblowers is being used in litigation by the Amistad Project to ensure election integrity and to uphold election laws in key battleground states, including Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

The Amistad Project said that they have sworn declarations that state over 300,000 ballots are at issue in Arizona, 548,000 in Michigan, 204,000 in Georgia, and over 121,000 in Pennsylvania. They claim that their evidence reveals multi-state illegal efforts by USPS workers to influence the election in at least three of six swing states.

The whistleblower statements include potentially hundreds of thousands of completed absentee ballots being transported across three state lines, and a trailer filled with ballots disappearing in Pennsylvania. 

Remember, Q said we're watching a movie. The betrayal of the hero by a trusted henchman usually takes place in the second act. The third one should be a good one!

Women in Football

 Outkick exposes the ridiculous Women in STEM SEC Football stunt that Vanderbilt arranged last weekened:

When I saw this whole ‘Vanderbilt needs a kicker’ story start to emerge, I didn’t pay a lot of attention to it. And then, like a lot of people, I watched on Saturday, because I was like, ‘Well, I want to see. Is she actually gonna attempt field goals? Is she gonna attempt extra points?’ It’s an intriguing story for this Vanderbilt-Missouri game. And as I’m watching, they keep trotting out the punter, who actually was probably Vanderbilt’s best player on the field on Saturday, and he punted seven times in a row for an average of 43 yards. And so, as I’m watching, I’m thinking, ‘Wait a minute, it’s a lot tougher to punt than it is to kick off in a game.’

“So, this story that Vanderbilt didn’t have a kicker doesn’t make sense to me, because the punter could have clearly run up and popped the ball up in the air and kicked the ball a lot further than she did. This is not rocket science.”

Read the whole thing. Vanderbilt actually had two options known to be far superior to the future namesake of the Sarah Fuller Courage Award, both of whom were male, and in whom Vanderbilt was equally uninterested.

Then again, it wasn't as if the stunt was going to cost Vanderbilt. It's not as if actually trying to win the game would have made any difference whatsoever, so they might as well go ahead and start 11 women while they're at it.

Guess who owned the vote?

Free trade is good, they told us. The free flow of international capital benefits everyone, they told us. So, we can only conclude, without doubt, that it is good for the economy to learn that a major investor in Dominion's holding company is the government of a certain sovereign state.

SEC filings: The parent company of Dominion Voting Systems received $400 million from an Investment Bank in Switzerland that is 75% owned by the Chinese government. UBS Securities is a Swiss investment bank which owns 24.99% of UBS Securities Co LTD, a Chinese Investment Bank. The remaining 75% of UBS Securities CO LTD is owned by the Chinese government,” states the report.

And now we also know why there was so much Chinese interest in Hunter Biden. It may also explain attorney Lin Wood's very unexpected call for martial law this morning.

Our country is headed to civil war. A war created by 3rd party bad actors for their benefit - not for We The People.

Communist China is leading the nefarious efforts to take away our freedom.

@realDonaldTrump should declare martial law.

It's getting increasingly difficult to ignore the serious national security aspects of the post-election situation.

Pointing out the obvious

 Eric Trump highlights the statistical improbabilities of the fraudulent 2020 election:

Biden lost 212 more counties than Obama did in 2012 (Biden won 477 counties vs Obama who won 689), yet Biden magically gained 13 million more votes than Obama... please.

As I've pointed out, in Hennepin County, Minnesota, Biden supposedly got 25 percent more votes than the average received by Obama-Obama-Clinton, while Trump simultaneously got 13 percent more than the average of McCain-Romney-Trump. The math simply doesn't add up.

What this amounts to is a giant experiment, an Orwellian Assessment, in determining whether the media has obtained sufficient influence over the public to permit the presentation of a false perception to create reality.

Another smoking gun

 At this point, there is enough gunsmoke for President Trump to declare martial law.

"Watch a Dominion Representative at Gwinnett County Election Central, responsible for tabulating ballots and certifying results, download data to a USB from the Election Management Server, plug it into a laptop, manipulate the data, then palm the USB.

Not convinced he is a Dominion Representative?

Lets take a close look at his badge."

This wasn't the only place that happened either. At this point, I would guess that the amount of fraudulent/missing ballots confirmed is probably going to be in the 15-25 million range, or around 15 percent of the total ballots cast. The 2020 Trumpslide force them to double and triple down on their planned fraud at the last minute.

So much for "certification"

The AZ state legislature does not appear to be impressed by the Secretary of State's decision to certify the election results while the ongoing hearings were proving the massive amount of vote fraud that took place in the state:

Arizona state representative Mark Finchem (district 11) on Monday issued a call to withhold the state’s Electoral College votes for Joe Biden because “he believes there is enough significant evidence of fraud to invalidate the state’s votes.”

President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Trump campaign senior legal advisor Jenna Ellis appeared before Arizona state lawmakers in a public hearing on Monday. 

The hearing was chaired by Representative Mark Finchem with a number of House and Senate members on the hearing panel. Trump’s legal team brought out many credible witnesses again on Monday who testified on the Dominion voting machines and other irregularities that point to outright Democrat voter fraud.

They delivered the smoking gun that I wanted to see. Meanwhile the Swamp creatures are clearly getting scared.

Schumer wants the Senate to vote to confirm Biden's cabinet RIGHT NOW. ASAP. YESTERDAY IF POSSIBLE.

What's the rush, Chuck?

Rumors and more rumors

 As seen on Twitter and /pol/

DC INSIDER: Gina Haspel, CIA Director, Found Dead From 'Natural Causes'

Shock at Langley right now as this just has circulated around DC about an hour ago. Now its going viral in gov circles but there is currently a strict news blackout.

What an untimely and unfortunate coincidence that would be, assuming it were true. And just before the holidays too.

I'd seen the rumors floating around /pol/ that she'd been killed or wounded in the Frankfurt raid, but as there were no sources and it seemed rather unlikely that she would have been in Germany for Thanksgiving, I elected not to mention them. But this sounds a little more credible, especially given the way in which she'd been summoned to McConnell's office last week.

Question: is being Epsteined considered a "natural cause"?

Here is the smoking gun. A single example of an internet packet containing election data being transmitted to a server outside the United States. That’s it. That’s all the evidence that is required to blow apart all the skeptics’ denials.

And what came out in the Arizona hearing today? The testimony of one US Army Colonel Phil Waldron,  a cyber security expert.

The Terminator of viruses

The real problem with Covid-19 clearly isn't its virulence or its lethality so much as its inexorable commitment.

Doctors and nurses in Italy are astounded at the resilience of one Maria Orsingher, a 101-year-old who has lived through the Spanish Flu, the Second World War, and who has now survived Covid-19… three times.

Orsingher first tested positive back in the early days of the pandemic in February. “In February, mother was hospitalized in Sondalo and then also the doctor of the hospital in Sondalo, where she was treated, told us that she had never had such an elderly person come out of the coronavirus in this way, she was breathing alone and not he had a fever,” says daughter Carla.

Having recovered, the centenarian then celebrated her 101st birthday in July. Unfortunately, she was then hospitalized with a fever in September, at which point she tested positive for the disease a second time and underwent treatment for 18 days. Medical staff were amazed at her resilience and told local media the hospitalization was mostly precautionary. 

Alas, the coronavirus came for her one more time, as she tested positive again last Friday. 

Covid vs Sig. Orsingher is the Godzilla vs Mothra of 2020.

We're not dealing with geniuses here

It appears that little post-election update Dominion did on its GA servers might not have been thoroughly tested.

Officials in Fulton County, Georgia, said a Dominion Voting Systems mobile server crashed on Sunday, delaying a recount requested by President Trump.

"Technicians from Dominion have been dispatched to resolve the issue," Fulton County officials said in a statement reported by WXIA-TV, a local NBC affiliate. "The Georgia Secretary of State’s office has also been alerted to the issue and is aware of efforts to resolve the problem."

Fulton County officials told the outlet that a newly purchased Dominion mobile server crash was to blame. The Washington Examiner reached out to Dominion for comment.

Dominion, a leading voting machine company whose products are used in several states, has been the focus of voter fraud claims by Trump and his allies. Sidney Powell, an attorney from whom the Trump legal team distanced themselves in recent days, has a federal lawsuit alleging widespread voter fraud in Georgia, and she claims that state officials, including Gov. Brian Kemp, were bribed to be part of a conspiracy with Dominion to tilt the election in President-elect Joe Biden's favor.

This is devolving into pure comedy now.

UPDATE: It keeps getting better. The server didn't crash. It's been reported missing.

The black magic of corporate tyranny

It has taken a long time, but conservatives are finally beginning to comprehensively reject the idea that corporacracy is capitalism. And Alex Macris contemplates how corpocracy can become a form of legalized tyranny that deftly eludes the constitutional protections previously enjoyed by Americans:

If you’ve read the Parable of the Seasteader, you’ll already know that at sufficient scale the public/private distinction collapses — a private entity of sufficient size can have all the power of a public entity. It is certainly arguable that Facebook and Google have reached such size. Here, however, I want to discuss a different dilemma - government’s use of private entities to regulate freedoms it cannot directly abridge.

We’re going to look at one specific right (the right to free speech) and one specific set of Federal regulations (§ 1604.11) but the pattern I’m describing here has become ubiquitous in our country. Nowadays, almost anything government is forbidden to regulate, it can require corporations to regulate for it. The government has outsourced tyranny. Let’s see how this black magic is performed....

Government cannot regulate your expression of your viewpoint - but corporations can.

Most people understand that the First Amendment does not apply to private actors on their private property. A person or corporation can choose to allow free speech in their home or business, or can choose to regulate free speech, even viewpoints, as they deem. This “exception” to the First Amendment has been the case since the foundation of Anglo-American law, and it is absolutely necessary to protect the rights of property owners.

For instance, if I am running a bicycle shop, I am absolutely permitted to prevent my employees from putting up posters that say “bicycles suck” or telling my customers to “buy a scooter.” Likewise, if I am running a video game news site, I am absolutely permitted to tell my journalists not to write about the beauties of Sistine Chapel instead. And if I invite you to my home to binge-watch Babylon 5, and you express the offensive viewpoint that Star Trek is better, I am altogether within my rights to make you leave.

Admittedly, there have been occasional exceptions to this rule under the so-called state actor doctrine. Most notably, the US Supreme Court ruled in Marsh v Alabama (1946) that the First Amendment fully applied to expressive activities on the company-owned sidewalks and streets of a company-owned town. The precedent of Marsh v Alabama was expanded in Amalgamated Food Employees Union v Logan Valley Plaza (1968) then overturned in Hudgens v NLRB (1976). Since Hudgens, the state actor doctrine has waned in importance, despite numerous conservative efforts to sue online platforms.

We will put aside the so-far toothless Section 230 for a discussion another day. In general, private corporations can regulate the expression of viewpoints, even though government cannot, and that’s the law.

In Fact, Private Abridgment Is Often Required!

What most people don’t understand, however, is that private actor aren’t just free to regulate viewpoint. They are required by government to regulate viewpoints. What a paradox! Government can require a private actor to undertake regulation over speech that the government couldn’t itself take? Yes!

There is more, there is a lot more, there for the reading

Georgia to wipe voting machines tomorrow

That's certainly not at all suspicious... especially when a District Court judge is going to permit them to try erasing the evidence by overturning his previous order (PDF) issued less than an hour earlier to freeze all Dominion voting machines:

Plaintiffs contend that Union County officials have advised that they are going to wipe or reset the voting machines of all data and bring the count back to zero on Monday, November 30.

On this basis, Plaintiffs seek a temporary restraining order to impound and preserve the voting machines in the State of Georgia, and to prevent any wiping of data. However, Plaintiffs’ request fails because the voting equipment that they seek to impound is in the possession of county election officials. Any injunction the Court issues would extend only to Defendants and those within their control, and Plaintiffs have not demonstrated that county election officials are within Defendants’control.

Defendants cannot serve as a proxy for local election officials against whom the relief should be sought. Jacobson v. Fla. Sec’y of State, 974 F.3d 1236, 1256–58 (11th Cir. 2020). Therefore, to the extent Plaintiffs seek emergency relief to impound and preserve the voting machines, that request is denied.

The GA election officials and the District Court judge are really doubling down here, especially in light of the Federal requirements concerning election data. The criminal penalties for not providing that data must be worse than whatever the machines would reveal. But realistically, I doubt it matters very much, because the Trump administration and the NSA almost certainly have it all already.

Before you get all heated up or start spiraling over this, just stop and think about what's happening for a second. Do you really think the election officials, or the judges, would be taking the very obvious and very obviously suspicious steps they are taking if they believed they were in a strong position? To me, this looks like a desperate, last ditch, Hail Satan's Mommy action.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media is reporting that "Sleepy Joe" Biden is heading for the hospital after suffering what may be a fatal ankle injury while playing with his dog this weekend.

UPDATE: The GNews guy who broke the Hunter Biden laptop story, complete with pictures, is now reporting that Joe Biden went to Mitch McConnell and offered to concede the Senate Majority Leader will guarantee that President Trump pardon him and his family. Which visit may account for that sudden ankle injury.

As I previously wrote, we're not waiting for President Trump to concede. We're waiting for Joe Biden to concede... while he still can.

UPDATE: My mistake. It appears the GA voting machine wiping is still on for tomorrow. Not that it will do them any good.

UPDATE: Okay, NOW the same District Court Judge has issued a third order. The voting machine wiping is off again.

UPDATE: Looks like someone is going to concede soon.

Biden has "hairline fractures" in his mid-foot and will "likely require a walking boot for several weeks.” 

A walking boot. Quelle surprise. Not even a black eye will save him now.

UPDATE: President Trump tweets "Get well soon!" He knows.

A warning, not a concession

 The President issues a veiled warning to the Supreme Court:

President Donald Trump acknowledged his vanishing path to overturning the results of the 2020 election in court on Sunday during his first full interview since losing to President-elect Joe Biden earlier this month.

“Well, the problem is, it’s hard to get into the Supreme Court,” Trump said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” after host Maria Bartiromo asked him when he expected his challenges to make it to the justices. “I’ve got the best Supreme Court advocates, lawyers, that want to argue the case, if it gets there. They said, ‘It’s very hard to get a case up there,’” Trump added. “Can you imagine, Donald Trump, president of the United States, files a case, and I probably can’t get a case.”

Trump said that his cases, which legal experts have described as far-fetched, should make it to the high court, but did not predict that they would.

“It sounds like if you can’t be heard by the Supreme Court, you lose. Do you believe you will win this?” Bartiromo asked at one point.

“We should be heard by the Supreme Court. Something has to be able to get up there, otherwise, what is the Supreme Court?” Trump said.

Apparently neither an obstacle or a path to victory. That sounds a bit like... a splashing sound? And this was an interesting choice of words in the article.

Trump also insisted that he can prove the voting machines were used by Democrats to fraudulently win the election for Biden – but he did not yet offer any solid evidence. 

So, he knows he can prove it, but hasn't offered any solid evidence - yet. Which means they know he can prove it too. My guess is that they are assuming he will cuck and concede rather than break the system they have corrupted, and the court rulings are essentially one big call of his bluff.

But I think President Trump loves America too much to lay down his arms rather than cross the Rubicon if that's what is required. And greatness is never achieved without risk.

UPDATE: Some people have been saying that they thought Trump sounded defeated in the interview, or at least lacking in his usual high energy. I suspect he is just frustrated that his enemies are stubbornly pushing him to the point where he has to destroy them instead of simply defeating them. If, as I believe, he knows he is holding all the cards, he finds it hard to believe that they are stupid and stubborn enough to insist on playing through the charade.

But one thing I have learned is that evil is not really stupid. Foolish and short-sighted, yes, but not exactly stupid. It has a certain animal cunning that gives it uncanny insight into the reluctance of its foes to finish it off. Evil doesn't believe you can't win, but it very sincerely believes you won't choose to win, and therefore it will call your every bluff and ignore your every threat and warning, no matter how credible they might be.

This is the weakness of the good man. He wants a civil surrender, he doesn't want to win a no-quarter war. He is reluctant to accept that the enemy always gets a vote and he doesn't understand that evil men have always relied upon good men failing to do what they observably have the ability to do. Machiavelli, however, understood this.

Men do not know how to be either entirely wicked or entirely good... they do not know how to employ violent measures which are honourable in themselves, and as a result, remaining undecided, between their own indecision and their ambiguity they are eliminated.

Remember, this is how the president knew from the very start.

Sidney Powell Confirms Rumor Is True: Trump Was Watching The Fraud Happen In Realtime On Election Night From Eisenhower Building SCIF!

This is civil war

If what Gen. McInerney is saying is true, the US is already in a state of civil war:

Lt General Thomas McInerney and Lt General Michael Flynn gave interviews to WVW Broadcasting Network today. It was Flynn’s first interview since his pardon. In stunning testimony, McInerney stated his sources have told him U.S. Army Special Forces, possibly the famed Delta Force, raided the CIA-run server farm in Frankfurt, Germany.

5 soldiers were killed in the ensuing firefight, as well as one CIA paramilitary; the CIA personnel were allegedly flown in from Afghanistan for security, according to related news reports.

It is worth observing that is at least four more fatalities than were suffered by both sides combined at Fort Sumter. Of course, it's only technically civil war, since the CIA is loyal to the globalists, not to the American nation.

A review of the PA Supreme Court decision

I asked the lawyer who previously reviewed Sidney Powell's GA filing to look at the recent PA Supreme Court ruling. He graciously consented to share his thoughts, which follow.

So here’s my brief take on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Decision. The usual disclaimers in this case are that I do not practice in Pennsylvania State courts, nor is election law my typical case. Nonetheless, several things stand out to me.

Before addressing those issues, let me clarify a few things. Court decisions must be interpreted in light of several factors, not least of which is: 1) what is the court that is issuing the opinion; and 2) what is the relief sought?

In this case, it is a Pennsylvania state court and the plaintiff were seeking an order prohibiting certifying the results of the election. Both of these are significant. It is significant that it is a state court because state courts generally are not viewed as intellectually rigorous as federal courts. Further, federal courts are viewed, rightly or wrongly, as less partisan than state courts. Federal courts also can address federal and state issues while state courts are typically limited to state issues. There are exceptions but I’m not going to go into them now.

The remedy at this point is also significant. Generally speaking, there are two types of remedies: legal and equitable. Legal remedies are usually monetary damages after something has occurred. Equitable remedies are court orders to make someone act in a certain way, either to do something or refrain from doing something. At common law, legal and equitable courts were different. In most US courts, whether federal or state, they are merged.

So the original PA complaint starts by saying, “The amendments to the mail-in voting rules were not lawfully passed. So, this court should not allow mail-in votes that were authorized under those statutes.” There was a flurry of filings and activity at the beginning of this week about that. In the middle of it, the PA Secretary of State ‘certified’ the ballot. Once that was done, the defendants tried to claim that the case was moot, or that there was no need to go further. The trial court said, “No, there are several other things the Secretary of State has to do before the certification is proper so it is not moot.” 

The trial court judge is a Republican. PA as a state allows partisan elections for judges. The PA Supreme Court has 2 Republicans and 5 Democrats. The trial court judge ultimately found that the laws amending the mail-in ballots were not approved according to the rules for modifying PA statutes. So, she said, “You cannot count those votes.” The defendants appealed.

Here is where it gets interesting. At common law, equitable cases had a variety of doctrines and defenses that did not apply for legal remedies. As one example, one who seeks a suit in equity must come with ‘clean hands.’ So if you can show that the plaintiff engaged in illegitimate behavior, you can argue that the plaintiff should not get an equitable decision even if that decision might otherwise be justified.

Another equitable doctrine is ‘laches,’ which means that you have to timely act. It is a defense that essentially says, “Plaintiffs took too long to make their claim.” Note that a laches defense does not address the merits of the underlying argument. It is solely a procedural claim.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court relied upon laches and said, “This law went into effect a year ago and none of the Plaintiffs did anything about it.” The opinion notes that the plaintiffs did nothing upon the law’s passing. The PA Supreme Court says, “They waited until millions cast their vote” so they will not allow the suit to go forward.

However, there is another legal doctrine, one called ‘standing’. Standing simply means that you yourself have to suffered an injury. Think of environmental groups that try to stop the Navy from using sonar to map the ocean floor because the use of sonar damages whales and dolphins. Courts typically say, “Even if you are 100% right, you aren’t being injured. And you do not have the capacity to sue for the whales and dolphins. You do not have standing to bring suit.” And they then dismiss the suit. No joke. There are several reported decisions about this.

The key to laches it that the delay has to be unreasonable. So if you learn that your city is going to bulldoze a public playground where you take your children, you cannot wait until the playground is razed and they start putting up the apartment complex to file your suit. The PA Supreme Court, without any discussion of the merits, just said, “You’re too late. You lose.” The PA Supreme Court has 5 Dems and 2 Rs. The Rs concurred but said there should be a hearing about the problems with the votes. They essentially said, “Voiding every mail in ballot is too much right now so we would void the trial court order, but we would let the claims go forward and see where that leads.” Put another way, if the evidence shows that X% of the mail-in ballots were fraudulent, we would not oppose striking those ballots, but we aren’t going to grant a blank check at this stage of the game.”

Realistically, given current standing doctrine, there is no way Plaintiffs could have succeeded if they raised this challenge prior to this election. Any potential injury would be too speculative. That is, if they filed suit in December, 2019, the ruling from the court would have been “Plaintiffs challenge how this became law but Plaintiffs do not allege that they are injured in any way. Some of the Plaintiffs announce their intention to run for office but it is not clear whether they will or if they will succeed in the primaries or if any votes would go their way or not. Because they cannot point to an actual injury, they lack standing to assert these claims. Case dismissed.”

Further, if a law is unconstitutional for whatever reason, it can be challenged at any given time. Constitutionality is like jurisdiction: one does not need to assert it to preserve it. So even if a case is tried and lost, you can raise jurisdiction on appeal and argue for the first time that the lower court had no jurisdiction. Not likely the best way to argue a case, and might have the courts thinking that such an argument is just a Hail Mary that won’t go anywhere, but arguing that the statute is unconstitutional will not be dismissed with a blithe “You’re too late” opinion from the court. 

So where does this leave the Plaintiffs? There is now nothing preventing them from seeking Supreme Court review. This does not mean that the Supreme Court will take it but it does mean that there are enough opinions that the Supreme Court can take it. Will they?

Maybe. It comes from a state Supreme Court on an incomplete record. The trial court had issued an order and was anticipating hearings that would develop evidence. That did not happen and the PA Supreme Court certainly did nothing to develop a factual record. But the trial court did consider the evidence before it (primarily affidavits) and relied upon that evidence to issue an injunction. The Supreme Court could pass on this case. That does not mean they agree with the PA Supreme Court. It could just mean that there is an insufficient factual record for them to adequately rule.

The U.S. Supreme Court could revive the injunction, send it to the trial court with an order for further evidence and delay a final ruling until the evidence is developed so the parties can know which ballots are a real problem and which cannot be verified. The Supreme Court could also issue a ruling that problematic ballots cannot be counted and remand the matter to a trial court to determine what mail-in ballots did not comply with PA laws prior to the enactment of their new mail-in-balloting scheme. 

There is a Third Circuit opinion that denied the Trump campaign’s petitions. That could be appealed as well. It could be that the Third Circuit case and this case are combined with directions on how to handle the PA issues.

Given the number of cases that are pending, I would bet that the USSC would take some type of case if for no other reason that it would give guidelines to lower courts, including appellate courts, for how to decide these cases in the future. In 2000, Bush v Gore was just the state of Florida. Here, we are dealing with Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona and Nevada. Those states have differing election laws and criteria. Realizing the challenging occurring elsewhere, it might be worthwhile for them to take PA now to issue rulings to guide other courts.

And if those other states are still in contention by December 8, those elections could be referred to their state legislatures for the legislature to appoint a board of electors.

I make no claim about what will happen. I know courts prefer to make as narrow ruling as possible, everything else considered. If the USSC can say, “PA’s rules about mail-in-ballots are not legitimate and so those votes cannot be counted,” that is far more limited than throwing out the whole election and they would prefer that if at all possible. Such a ruling could guide any number of states, including GA. Time is rapidly dwindling for courts to make a decision about whether they will decide the dispute or whether they will declare that state elections have not been decided and it goes to the state legislatures.

Until then, nunc pugnamus.

Unconstitutionality has a time limit?

Or so the Pennsylvania Supreme Court declares:

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Saturday rebuffed a long-shot election challenge Saturday from one of President Trump’s top boosters in Congress, balking at his suggestion that it throw out every ballot cast by mail or designate the state’s legislature to decide who won the state.

In a unanimous decision, the justices declared that U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly (R., Butler) and the seven Republican plaintiffs in the suit had waited too long to bring their lawsuit alleging that the 2019 law, passed by the state’s GOP-controlled legislature, which created no-excuse mail voting in the state for the first time was unconstitutional and “illegally implemented.”

Instead of filing it shortly after the passage of the bill, which was required in the statute, they waited until their candidate lost to challenge the mechanism by which some 2.6 million Pennsylvanians voted this year, the court wrote in a terse, three-page order.

I very, very much doubt that this is a surprise to the Trump team. Remember, wait two days.... It's a bit strange, though. If the law flies in the face of the state constitution, then it presumably continues to do so regardless of when it is formally challenged. Does unconstitutionality really have a time limit?

A Democrat's view of the GA filing

It is becoming apparent that the average Democrat is not necessarily inclined to buy the media's Three Monkey approach to the fraud-related lawsuit filings, as this longtime Democrat and state election official's review of the Powell lawsuit filed in GA indicates.

I’ve finished reviewing the Georgia filing and I have a few comments to share with the socialverse in my capacity as a 30-year registered Democrat, former Oregon state elections official (with policy and admin experience), and former CIO. 

I will not comment on the legal claims because, while I have familiarity with the law and court filings, I’m not a lawyer. I am also going to mostly stay away from alleged behaviors, too, as I wasn’t there and, anyway, they add color but are more open to dispute.

The original intent of the software code (acc’d to affidavits) was to manipulate votes without detection. When you start with one goal in mind, it’s tough to pivot to the opposite goal later—not matter how hard you might try. Not that it seems anyone tried … Absence of secure audit log (to record every action in the software) is so indefensible that I LOL’d when I read it. This fact alone should be enough to negate the results when there is ANY question about fraud because it cannot be proven that fraud DIDN’T occur.

Elections administration. Lawsuit alleges that many procedures required in state law—for good, common sense reasons to ensure the one voter, one ballot rule is adhered to—were not followed, including:

  • Receipt of absentee ballots in their return envelopes was not recorded (this reduces risk of ballot box stuffing, i.e., to ensure that only one real ballot has been submitted by one real voter)
  • Signatures were not verified against voter registration on return envelopes. There might be missing envelopes, too; it wasn’t clear to me in my reading or I missed it.
  • 8/12 Ballot processing is not allowed before Election Day in Georgia; in this election, by rule inconsistent with state law, SecState allowed counties to start 3 weeks early. Absent a rigid accountability processes, this risks double or counterfeit voting. Conducting one election with INTEGRITY is hard enough; when you overlay what is, in effect, a 2nd election (by mail) that has to be reconciled with what happens at the polls … this is very high risk … this “2 concurrent elections” risk was a primary argument for all elections being conducted by mail in Oregon, which was adopted after 20 years of practice with dual polling/mail elections—practice that none of these states whose elections are in question have had … 
  • Observers were not allowed during the original count or the recount. There is no defense for this and intrinsically implies that elections officials had something to hide.

There are other things to pick on, but these I cannot think of a way to defend and probably are sufficient to meet the apparent (according to the lawsuit) standard of “preponderance of the evidence” to “doubt the result.”

From dream to reality

Yes, Virginia, the 2020 edition of the Junior Classics is real at last. While we normally don't bother printing samples before we ship orders to backers or flip the switch to activate release into the distribution channel, the large number of moving parts involved plus the sheer volume of books to be shipped inspired us to take an uncharacteristically safe approach to the process. Fortunately, our caution turned out to be unnecessary, which is why we have today begun placing the first orders to ship out the initial three volumes to the original backers of the project.

We are very appreciative of the incredible support that made it possible to turn this dream into reality, and also of the patience that allowed the production team to ensure that the project was done right.

The 2020 Edition of the Junior Classics features dozens of stories, even more classic illustrations, and the original artwork of Arkhaven's Lacey Fairchild, and we are confident that this edition will come to be considered the definitive edition.

From the Preface to the 2020 Edition

For more than one hundred years the Junior Classics have been one of the great resources for teaching children to love reading and providing them with a lifelong taste for the Western literary canon.  These handsome books, containing short stories and selections from classic Western literature, have been passed down through the generations in many families, introducing boys and girls to Aesop, Homer, Bulfinch, and Virgil, and to Cervantes, Dickens, Poe, and Twain.

Wrapping time-honored tales in bright-colored covers, the Junior Classics proved irresistible to young readers over the years, reaching their aesthetic peak with the 1958 edition. Unfortunately, it was also then that the intellectual rot began, leading to the eventual demise of the series. A comparison with the 1918 edition reveals a methodical excision of the elements of Christianity and Americana that established the Junior Classics so firmly among God-fearing American families in the early part of the 20th Century. This process of secularization and intellectual enervation culminated in the 1992 edition, a literary abomination that further eviscerated the content and lowered the reading level to that of the barely literate. The title of the first volume, Let’s Read Together, amply demonstrates how a set of books intended to be read by children to inspire in them a love for quality literature devolved into books meant to be read to children to indoctrinate them.

Having witnessed the effect of the traditional Junior Classics on the reading habits of our own children, and observing the lengths to which homeschooling parents were willing to go to obtain the older books, we launched a crowdfunding campaign for the creation of a new edition of the Junior Classics, one that recaptures the spirit and purpose of the original.

"A likelihood of success on the merits"

There will be no rapid certification of the PA election results and the attempt of the Governor and the Secretary of State to ram through the election fraud there will not be permitted. From the ruling issued by Judge Patricia McCullough:

In careful consideration of the exigencies and time constraints in this matter of statewide and national import, and the longstanding constitutional mandate that every citizen of this Commonwealth is entitled to no less than a fair and free election, it was necessary to preliminarily enjoin, on an emergency and temporary basis, Executive Respondents from undertaking any other actions with respect to the certification of the results of the presidential and vice presidential elections, if indeed anything else needs to be done, pending an evidentiary hearing to ascertain the facts of this matter and to determine if the dispute is moot. Inasmuch as the Secretary had not certified the remaining results of the 2020 general election, it was also necessary to enjoin, on an emergency and preliminary basis, any attempt to certify these results as well....

 There is no harm to Respondents by the relief fashioned by this Court. The “Safe Harbor” provision of 3 U.S.C. §5 does not expire until December 8, 2020,and the Electoral College does not vote for president and vice president until December 14, 2020. Additionally, Petitioners appear to have established a likelihood to succeed on the merits because Petitioners have asserted the Constitution does not provide a mechanism for the legislature to allow for expansion of absentee voting without a constitutional amendment. Petitioners appear to have a viable claim that the mail-in ballot procedures set forth in Act 77 contravene Pa. 11 Const. Article VII Section 14 as the plain language of that constitutional provision is at odds with the mail-in provisions of Act 77. Since this presents an issue of law which has already been thoroughly briefed by the parties, this Court can state that Petitioners have a likelihood of success on the merits of its Pennsylvania Constitutional claim.

Notice, in particular, that the petitioners, who are a proxy for the Trump campaign, have been officially ruled to have "a likelihood of success on the merits" because the corrupt elected politicians, described here as "Executive Respondents" violated the Pennsylvania constitution by illegally applying the unconstitutional expansion of mail-in ballot procedures.

Translation: many, if not all, of those mail-in ballots for Biden are illegal and will not count. #bidenlost

There shouldn't be much doubt about how the PA legislature is going to vote, now that the Republican legislators have been shown at least an amount of the true extent of the fraud:

President Donald Trump on Wednesday summoned Republican members of the Pennsylvania legislature to the White House after a GOP hearing in Gettysburg in which Trump phoned in to reassert his false claim that he “won Pennsylvania by a lot.”

But on Thursday, no one wanted to talk about the meeting.

The White House did not issue a public statement about the visit, and lawmakers who made the trip to Washington were silent.

"Biggest sting op in US history"

It's been revealed that investigating 2020 election fraud is part of John Durham's mandate. If this thread by Paul Furber is accurate, the aftershocks of exposing the vote fraud may actually exceed my expectations in some regards:

"It’s been finally approved to disclose that John Durham’s scope investigation wasn’t limited to what occurred in the 2016 election but has occurred in 2020 election." 

"This isn’t limited to investigators at the FBI/DOJ but Investigation of all IC agencies in criminal meddling and conspiracy to commit fraud. This includes past government officials and past politicians." 

"There’s several contracted government companies and NGO’s included. The point was to not allow this to happen again to any future Presidential elections." 

Anon: what happens next?

"Trap was set. Biggest sting op in US history." 

Anon: post proof.

"Over 20K operators mostly military sworn in and deputized and undercover. Full FISA approval down to a janitors communication." 

"The architect to this coop was actually hatched at very prestigious ivy league university (heavy IC ties) that will soon be in the news embroiled by funding by a foreign hostile country.

First clue!" 

"We have the source code for dominion software. Algo is designed to add, subtract and switch votes remotely and locally. Meta data is stored and purged but kept embedded in stick drives." 

"Teams of 4-8 operators at every major polling location. Embedded cameras and fully recorded communications."

When?

"17 days before Trump gets sworn into office the biggest head will roll. Sound waves!" 

Will trump do a second term?

"100% yes. One major news network will fold because of it." 

And some of you wonder why we do not despair? Look at Trump. Look at Biden. Who strikes you as more confident of what is to come? Is every aspect of this thread true? We don't know, we simply can't know yet, but the bit about FISA approvals makes it sound as if the poster knows what he's talking about. Those approvals are what allow the NSA to conduct hop surveillance on people in a three-degrees-of-separation style.

This could be glorious. And for those who are afraid to hope, for those whose lower lips quiver at the increasingly remote possibility that this might be a trap constructed in order to embarrass them into expressing even a modicum of optimism, do try to keep in mind that one of the greatest things that Jesus Christ gives us is hope. And what could be more appropriate this Christmas season than that?

Hope is not bad. Hope is not weakness. Hope is not cope. To the contrary, hope is what gives us strength and fortitude. Hope is what generates morale, and morale is what wins wars and every other form of conflict that requires endurance. That's why those who seek to defeat you always attempt to frighten you and destroy every last vestige of your ability to hope.

Hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

- Romans 5:5
