Sounds like a movie

Then again, Q told us that we were watching one. One thing I had wondered about is where all those late-night Biden-only ballots were produced, and this might explain the mystery.

The Boss of the Philly mob — ‘Skinny Joey’ Merlino — is taking a victory strut, hobnobbing around the highest echelons of old-time mafia folk, mostly in Florida, describing what may have been the heist of the century: the 2020 presidential election.

The feat is drawing praise from far-flung corners of the Italian American business community, which sees the thanks of a grateful administration as key to the revival of the community’s political influence.

But an associate says that Merlino might just be willing to flip on Joe Biden and the Pennsylvania political operatives who ordered up some 300,000 election ballots marked for Biden.  The source alleges that Merlino and a lean team of associates manufactured those ballots at a rate of $10 per ballot — a whopping $3 million for three days of work.  They were then packaged into non-descript cardboard boxes and dropped off outside the Philadelphia Convention Center.

Sources who spoke to The Chronicle on the condition of anonymity say that Merlino picked up those ballots from two private households where a trusted handful of associates were busily marking ballots with Sharpie markers.  They were paid more than $1,000 per hour, often producing thousands of ballots every hour for more than 60 nearly-consecutive hours.

The ballots were purchased in cash. 

Nice work if you can get it. And, of course, avoid doing the time for it....

I know mobsters aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer, but if they're banking on the "gratitude" of politicians, they've already forgotten their own history with fixing presidential elections.

I think Merlino has psychiatric issues, as indicated further on in the Buffalo Chronicle article:

"But now, Merlino might just be willing to flip on Biden — in primetime Congressional testimony — if President Donald J. Trump is willing to issue the longtime mobster a full expungement of his decades-long criminal record. And, of course, Merlino wants to be pardoned for the election fraud itself and any crimes to which he may incriminate himself during his testimony.

“He wants a clean record. He wants to fish and hunt on federal lands. He’d really like a job with the National Parks Service. You need a clean record to get those things,” explains one confidant. “But most of all he wants the thanks of a grateful nation for coming forward.” "

As hilariously "thrilling" as your Copium fuelled conspiracy theories are, your posts on your blog of people should force their favorite political commentators, regardless of whether they are left or right wing, to bet on elections.

If they believe this stuff so strongly, make them put their money where their mouth is instead of just profiting off of click-bait trash masquerading as political analysis.

So since you appear so totally confident in the Don still being President after January 21st 2021, how about attaching some actual stakes to them? So, in the event that, contrary to all your predictions, the Trump campaign gets owned in court after completely failing to prove their case, and Joe Biden ends up inaugurated as President of the United States of America in January, would you pledge on this very blog to donate a modest amount, let's say $10,000, to a Black Lives Matter charity, or perhaps a trans rights charity?

If you're really as confident as you claim about your "God Emperor" totally remaining President (as opposed to the reality where he lost 306-232), then as I said, put your money where your mouth is, otherwise it just comes across as you telling your supporters one thing while not having the balls to actually prove the strength of your convictions.

Blogger tuberman November 16, 2020 9:53 AM  

This, obviously, would need strong physical evidence to back this up. Pictures of him with election officials time-dated just before, during, or after election day, or other convincing sauce. Pictures of his people dealing with election drivers, or even driving to the sites themselves (there was a hurry, so his people could have delivered).

There has been mob ties with most of the players in the DNC, but this is so stupid that it confirms their arrogance that they believe they can do the most absurd, in your face crap, and pull it off. The non-secret is that people will not believe anything this absurd.

Blogger Unknown November 16, 2020 11:58 AM  

That the mob is on the side of the democrats is no secret. The democrat party has always been the big city, catholic, labor union party. The mob are the enforcers and shady operators for the party.

It does indeed sound like a movie; a story is being formed here and it looks like this: Wealthy leftwing oligarchs, SJWs, big tech, The Democrat party, China, the media, and the mob tried to steal an American election. If they had succeeded, America would be the hub of the globalist project, which includes open borders, speech laws, forced integration, the whole catalog.

But, at the 11th hour, the hero Trump thwarts the forces of evil (listed above) and saves America from turning into a globalist shithole.

What will this "saving" of America look like? The SJWs will be smashed in the street, probably during a period of marshal law. The big money people and democrat operatives will be arrested. The mob will get their balls broken. Cold war with China is a guarantee, but very likely a hot one is in the making. If hot war occurs, expect to see unknown technologies get used. Think about earthquakes and storms hitting China and buildings being dustified.

And if hot war does occur with China, then I would also propose cleaning up Islam in Europe and the Middle East. The militaries and police of Germany, France, and Italy are more rightwing than you'd think. Also, Eastern European regular Army, and potential militia can be used to support Western European forces. The left will also need to be put down in Europe, and globalist scum leaders arrested. Russia will need their troops for clashes with Turkey and with terrorist forces in central Asia. If Israel wants to bomb Iran, and clean out areas near their borders, then this would be the time.

Wars aren't as long as they were in the past. This WWIII scenario will take 6 months to year. I expect the US to be in marshal law, or semi marshal law for most of it. There will be SJW and Chinese sabotage/hit teams primed for attacks on infrastructure, police/national guard, and on civilians. For this reason, you might see the rise of militias, but under the command of local sheriffs and police. Probably not fully armed militias, but used for infrastructure security, and riot squads.

This is the story I see unfolding. Somewhat tragic, but more of a comedy IMO. It's gonna be fun.

Blogger tuberman November 16, 2020 12:03 PM  

>> This story sounds too crazy to be real.

That's the point. This wasn't pushed by Trump's people, as it was put out by "The Buffalo Chronical." Quite likely it's misinfo put out by people against Trump.

Yet we don't know, as the Globalist do insane stuff all the time, and especially when they're in a time crunch. Even when there isn't time problems, they do wacko stuff. It's right in front of our eyes. A large part of this election is so bonkers statistically and has thoroughly shady connections happening, so nobody, but nobody could of wrote a fiction story like this and had it excepted.

It's what they do. Along with the lunatic real stuff, they put out absurd phony stuff, and that's also what they do.

So what we do with this kind of material is wait...to see if anything more comes of it with real proof, and if not, no loss.

Blogger Unknown November 16, 2020 12:17 PM

Blogger Lazy Hero November 16, 2020 12:25 PM  

Joey is too much out of central casting for me, but this could be true. The wheels fells off their coup election night and the demonrats were scrambling, so...

I think if it comes down to declaring Martial Law using the 14th, Trump should show all the evidence to the American People, read it off via the Emergency Broadcasting System if need be, really really inform the military of this evidence, and announce that on Jan. 05 there will be a Do Over Presidential Election in just the contested states to make this go faster. This election will be administered by the Military, monitored by both parties and video taped at every step, and if he legitimately loses he will step down.

And yes I believe the majority of Americans, essentially Trump voters, will go along with this.

Blogger SecondComingOfBast November 16, 2020 12:55 PM

Again citing Robert Barnes here. If you think he's worth listening to, that's where it comes from. Apparently, an unusual number of single-candidate ballots is an indication of fraud, and it's not accident or laziness. If a fake ballot has all the candidates filled in, then more people have a reason and opportunity to contest it, and the whole thing is more likely to be exposed. If only one candidate is filled in, the specific office you're targeting, then only one candidate has grounds to contest the results, and it's at least a little harder to stop.
