The big steal

Donald Trump probably did win in a landslide

Consider this election night scenario: America and the world sit down and tune in to the vote count for the US presidency. Early tallies appear. Those who believed the media’s polls and expected a Biden blue wave are quickly aghast; it’s not happening. More like a red wave. Florida falls early, emphatically, a big piece off the chessboard. The red tallies creep westward across the map, and the battleground states are either tight, or favoring Trump. Trump is around 700,000 votes ahead in Pennsylvania, and well ahead in Michigan. Panic sets in; time for Plan B.

The word goes out to a few critical polling centres reliably run by Democrat city machines. In key states voting stops, inexplicably, for a few hours. Republican poll-watchers are ejected from polling centres; at one in Georgia everyone’s told voting has closed and they all leave – except for Democrats, who secretly keep working. Trucks are loaded, switches flicked and extraordinary, big vote changes occur suddenly across the battleground states. By morning Biden’s vote is rising throughout the mid-west, beating Trump in some states and closing fast in others. By Saturday the media has crowned Basement Joe the president-elect. Trump is yelling the election was stolen from him. Where’s your evidence, says the media, just concede and get off the stage.

The fog of war is still enveloping much of what happened that night but plenty of witness evidence is now available, in the hundreds of affidavits from poll-workers, scrutineers and others that an incurious mainstream media is ignoring. Take the case of the Michigan lawsuit from the non-profit, apolitical legal rights body, the Great Lakes Justice Center. Long-term election worker Jesse Jacob laid the first complaint, with other affidavits including one from former Michigan assistant attorney general Zach Larsen. They tell a now-familiar tale of poll watchers being prevented from scrutineering, of being kept six feet back from the votes ‘due to the virus’, of their complaints being ignored and poll-watchers tossed out if they complained, of ballots being pre-dated to fit the 3 November deadline, of illegitimate ballots being counted, of staff adding names and birthdays to ballots, and coaching voters to choose Biden, of ballots arriving loose in open bins, not in the sealed ballot boxes, and with no chain of custody, of voters double voting, of routine failure to check IDs. It’s a veritable cascade of voter fraud, practically a manual on the art of it.

Then came the late night activity in Detroit, Michigan. To quote: At approximately 4:00 a.m. on November 4, 2020, tens of thousands of ballots were suddenly brought into the counting room through the back door (Ex. C, Affidavit of Andrew Sitto). These new ballots were brought to the TCF Center by vehicles with out-of-state license plates (Ex. C). It was observed that all of these new ballots were cast for Joe Biden (Ex. C). And: At approximately 9:00 p.m. on November 4, 2020, numerous boxes of ballots were brought to TCF Center (Ex. D)…the Wayne County Clerk’s office instructed the ballot counters to use the date of birth of January 1, 1900 on all of these newly appearing ballots. None of the names of these new ballots corresponded with any registered voter...

There are many hundreds of similar affidavits, even some from appalled Democrats. Rudy Giuliani says he has the best part of 1,000 witnesses lined up.

Every election has some chicanery, but the media bleat that ‘there is no widespread national election fraud’ is a red herring; what matters is targeted fraud that changes critical outcomes. Like back-of-the-truck votes delivered in the wee small hours. Like one pollster’s claim that Biden underperformed Clinton everywhere except in Milwaukee, Detroit, Atlanta and Philly. Banana republic stuff.

If buckets of Biden votes were created overnight, you’d expect to see anomalies. Turnout of registered voters in, say, Wisconsin, exceeded 90 per cent, implausible in a country where turnouts historically range from 50-70 per cent. In nearby Ohio it was a normal 51 per cent. Even in Australia with compulsory voting the 2019 federal turnout was only 92 per cent.

More interesting are the geeks’ discoveries about impossible data changes in vote counts; Michigan poll officials ‘fessed up to one ‘glitch’ that switched 6,000 Trump votes over to Biden; there is every sign that this was not a one-off event, with the internet alive with reports of split-second vote ‘glitches’ that coincidentally all moved thousands of Trump votes Biden’s way. The spotlight is falling on widely used and highly criticised Dominion voting machines, linked financially to Democrats; Trump legal pit bull Sidney Powell says this software was first invented to change votes in Venezuela elections. Switching votes is a feature, not a bug. These machines are used in some 30 states, and had a reported software update the night before the election. The data trail looks distinctly unnatural and anomalous and Powell has warned she will soon deliver lawsuits on the statistical impossibilities of these vote counts.

So are we to believe that a wave of lawbreaking broke out around 3 November? Google Trends did show an October spike in searches for election fraud penalties, but here’s another explanation. Mainstream media ‘news’ has propagandised over four years that Trump is literally a nazi, a dictatorial Godzilla smashing up the US. If you have a chance to stop Hitler from destroying your country, does it not behove you to take it? These law-breakers see themselves as the good guys. That’s why Biden-declared postal union workers left military ballots in ditches, ‘lost’ ballots in GOP counties and were lax about securing the unprecedented millions of mail-in ballots, sprayed carelessly and deliberately across many key states to create exactly this opportunity. Democrat loyallists everywhere felt they had to do everything in their power to kill the Trump vote.

Yet the right’s vote held strong, with Trump adding at least 12 million and maybe more (legal) votes to his 2016 tally. The GOP won up to a dozen extra seats in the House, performed well in state legislatures and if two Georgia senators are returned the GOP will again control the Senate. Is it likely that voters across the country decided to vote strongly Republican in every other race than the presidency? I suspect Trump did get a landslide re-election vote, which the Democrats parried with every weapon in their armoury, from grassroots lawlessness, newly lax mail-in ballot laws, virus-designed poll centre obstruction, and yes, possibly computer-manipulated data fraud. Whether their late night panic will be undone with close scrutiny is yet to emerge.

In 2014 the magazine Vox reported that 68 per cent of Americans believed elections were rigged; a Democrat called Ron Klain, who is now Joe Biden’s chief of staff, tweeted at the time: ‘That’s because they are.’ Well, he’d know.
