Viruses, Lockdowns, and Biomic Learning

In all the annals of Covid, Taiwan remains an outlier. Out of a population of 24 million, and an extraordinary population density of 1,739 per square mile, it registered only 573 “cases.”

At just one test per 100,000 of population, it did the lowest rate of testing in the industrial world, restricting tests to those with symptoms. It imposed the lowest “stringency” of government policy (as measured by one of the world’s most limited lockdowns, far less severe even than Sweden’s, with scant closing of schools, restriction of travel, or banning of gatherings and other events).

Yet Taiwan experienced only seven total deaths, the lowest level of per-capita deaths among all populous countries.

By comparison, the Diamond Princess cruise ship, with 3,700 aboard and in quarantine, registered 10 deaths. The cruise ship group was dominantly in the vulnerable group of over 70 years old. But Taiwan boasts a life expectancy of over 80 years and saw it increase by the usual annual rate in 2020.

To discuss such enigmas, I yesterday visited Jeffrey Tucker, the editorial director at AIER, the American Institute of Economic Research, and author of a superb new book on the crisis, Liberty or Lockdown.

Near me in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, AIER resides in a castle on a hill overlooking the town and the world.

Apart from the Discovery Institute in Seattle, which I co-founded with Bruce Chapman, AIER is increasingly my institutional home.

You may know Great Barrington through the Great Barrington Declaration from October 4 by Dr. Martin Kulldorff of Harvard, Dr. Sunetra Gupta of Oxford University, and Dr. Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford, all globally eminent authorities on epidemics and infectious diseases.

Signing their joint declaration were hundreds of other medical scholars from around the world and tens of thousands of lay people.

The declaration concluded:

“Adopting measures to protect the vulnerable should be the central aim of public health responses to COVID-19… nursing homes should use staff with acquired immunity and perform frequent PCR testing of other staff and all visitors… Retired people living at home should have groceries and other essentials delivered… When possible, they should meet family members outside rather than inside. A comprehensive and detailed list of measures… is well within the scope and capability of public health professionals.”

“Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold. Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume. People who are more at risk may participate if they wish, while society as a whole enjoys the protection conferred upon the vulnerable by those who have built up herd immunity.”

Amazingly, this common-sense statement aroused huge official resistance. Even the Town Council of Great Barrington itself indignantly disavowed any connection to it. The eminent epidemiologists were said to be part of a “death cult.” AIER was dismissed as a fringe operation.

Jeffrey Tucker points to the Taiwan story as crucial and revelatory. The basic facts are charted and analyzed by AIER scholar Amelia Janaskie. While most analysts explained Taiwan’s exemption from Covid by citing various foresighted government and public health policies, Janaskie concluded that government policy had almost nothing to do with it. 

From the AIER point of view, honed by Sunetra Gupta of Oxford and expounded by Tucker, Taiwan’s example shows that the spread of Covid is largely explained by Information Theory.

The reason Taiwan suffered so little from the epidemic was its previous ordeal at the epicenter of the more deadly coronavirus SARSCoV-1 in 2003, when Taiwan led the world in per capita deaths. This ordeal trained not chiefly the government officials now claiming credit for mastering Covid, but the immune systems of the Taiwanese. Their antibodies and T-cells were ready for Covid not because of policy choices but because of biological learning processes.

Sunetra Gupta believes that the huge growth of world population during the twentieth century was largely an effect of globalization imparting similar biological learning processes on human immune systems. For the first time in human history, viruses propagated everywhere. As a result, human immune systems everywhere were trained in suppressing them. Through the cosmopolitan spread of immune system learning, the world escaped a grim perennial cycle of devastating plagues and extinctions striking successively in unprepared localities. 

From the point of view of information theory, immune systems experienced a learning process comparable to the learning process that produces economic growth. Just as global trade conveyed new technologies and industrial practices to countries around the world, thus fostering competition and spurring growth, the spread of global tourism, immigration, and air traffic educated immune systems everywhere.

Wealth is knowledge, growth is learning, and money is time. This is my information theory mantra. These rules apply not only to economies everywhere but also to immune systems and their memories. Globalization is the paramount learning process across the board.

We conquered diseases the same way we overcame parochial economic stagnation—by competition and trade, not by protection and quarantine. We won through ubiquitous exposure to learning experiences, not by retreat and isolation from them. 

We overcame the billions of potentially deadly viruses not chiefly by vaccinations and new drugs and hygienic practices, but by spreading diseases more widely. With ever expanding exchanges and mutual experiences among the tribes of the world, we educated their immune systems and biomes.

Gupta comes from Calcutta, where viral threats are largely confined to the lowest castes, which gain herd immunity for the rest of Indian society to an unfathomable array of diseases.

Now public health experts and therapeutic states entertain the idea that they can fight disease by quarantining the healthy as new untouchables, locking down our economies, and summoning vaccines for every new threat. But viruses are an intrinsic part of the human biome. The only reason we populate the globe in billions is that our systems learned how to deal with them. 

Sunetra Gupta now fears that we are forgetting the role of globalization and learning in the growth not just of world commerce but of the world’s population itself. The lockdowns and other anti-globalization and isolationist movements pose the threat of a new dark age for human immune systems and economies alike.

The ultimate scarcity is time. Contriving remedies for every disease is a fool’s errand that would doom the human race to an endless waste of time and resources in a whack-a-mole frenzy beating down diseases that always crop up in unexpected times and places. 

But billions of human immune systems across the planet in an unfathomable process of biomic learning are constantly surveying the viral landscape. They are maintaining an eternal vigil against high entropy threats, while human minds uncover new economic opportunities in a spiral of human progress of globally interacting bodies and souls. 

The best testimony to the success of these mutual learning processes is not only the amazing story of Taiwan. It is our very presence on the planet today, some 8 billion learning systems strong, distributed as widely as human minds and interacting everywhere to ensure the survival of learning and growth.

Why Does the Liberal Media Refuse To Report Meaningful Data on Covid?

Even with Donald Trump’s vindication of getting big Pharma to produce a viable vaccine to immunize people against the COVID, the media misinformation and hysteria continues. The media meme wants you to believe that this is a real pandemic and that people are dying in the thousands every week. They are not. It is a lie.

There is a calculated propaganda campaign going on, with most of the media and politicians playing along. The messaging is designed to sow fear and convince you that you must surrender your Constitutional rights. You are told repeatedly that you cannot (or should not) attend the church, synagogue or mosque of your choosing. You are told that you cannot go to your favorite restaurant or bar. And these edicts have the horrific effect of destroying the jobs and livelihoods of many small business owners and the livelihoods of millions of Americans.

Yet, if you are keen on looting and attacking conservative institutions, you can go out. No sanctions for Antifa or BLM. And you are commanded to wear masks by the likes of the Governors of New York and New Jersey, while they ignore their own edicts and do the opposite. The stench of hypocrisy covers America like a blanket of rotting garbage. Most of you have noticed that a vast majority of Americans, like willing sheep, obeyed the mask mandate across much of this country. Yet, the number of people testing positive for Covid keeps going up. Guess what? Masks really do not make a difference. If the wearing of the mask kept infections from happening, the number of cases should have dropped.

I will reiterate what I have written before–Covid is a real disease and, in some cases, kills the infected soul. But the number dying, at least here in my neck of the woods in Florida, the vast majority of people are not sick and not infected. But that is not the message that the media is putting out.

Here’s what the Sarasota Herald Tribune reported today (Wednesday, November 18):

Sarasota County reported 92 new cases of COVID-19, while the average daily new cases for the past seven days is at 115 – a daily average that is reminiscent of the height of the pandemic in July. There were six new deaths reported in Sarasota, bringing the total deaths in the county due to COVID-19 to 364.

Manatee County reported 107 new cases, with a daily average of 107 over the past seven days, and three new deaths. 362 people have died from COVID-19 in Manatee County.

Florida added 7,925 news cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, for a total of 905,248 since the pandemic began. There were 87 new deaths reported statewide, bringing the total to 17,731 since the pandemic began. The positivity of new tests in Florida was over 8% for the second day in a row.

I do not ask you to trust my opinion. I believe in facts. I have monitored the Sarasota Memorial Hospital (aka SMH) The SMH daily Covid report (the hospital does not do reports on Saturday and Sunday) is an example of what all hospitals should be doing in order to ensure people in surrounding communities know what is happening. However, the SMH data still has some glaring omissions. The biggest one is the failure to report on the age and the physical health of the patient (prior to contracting Covid). We do not know if they are old or young. If they are obese or skinny. Or if they had co-mordibities.

This is only one data point, but the Sarasota/Bradenton area is a bell weather. We have more than the average number of senior citizens tottering around. We are getting a major influx of “snowbirds” (a snowbird is someone from the northern United States or Canada who comes to Florida in November and heads back north in April). And we have tourists. The beaches along the west coast of Florida are a major draw for folks seeking to escape snowdrifts

So, here are the key facts courtesy of SMH:

  • Only 9.7% of the patients in SMH over an eleven day period were hospitalized because of Covid.
  • On average only 25% of the patients in ICU were there because of Covid.
  • Out of the total patient population tested for Covid, only 5.3% tested positive.
  • Eighty four people were hospitalized because of Covid in this 11 day period.
  • One hundred two (102) patients were treated and discharged in this same period.
  • Nine people died from Covid at SMH between 17 November and 27 November.

This hospital is not being overwhelmed by Covid patients. They are not stacking bodies outside the morgue. The treatment for Covid, such as hydroxychloroquine and remdesivir, is proving effective. Other therapeutics such as taking vitamin D3, vitamin C and Zinc also appear to be playing a key role in helping people maintain good health. Doctors have a much better understanding of how to fight this awful disease.

The data and daily reports from SMH are produced below for your own personal inspection. Question everything the media reports. Demand evidence and facts. Push back against the fear mongers who hope you will meekly cave and not raise your voice.

MICHIGAN WITNESS: I Saw the Detroit Plan to Destroy All Provisional Ballots, Hurt Republicans (VIDEO)

Whistleblower from #DetroitLeaks comes forward

Michigan activist Adam de Angeli has come forward to disclose that he was the whistleblower behind #DetroitLeaks, that showed the plan to make the steal.

The #DetroitLeaks series suggests that there was an official plan all along to commit voter fraud and cover it up.

#DetroitLeaks was a series of articles published at Big League Politics by intrepid journalist Shane Trejo that showed Detroit training poll workers on how to cover-up voter fraud, destroy ballots from people they didn’t like, and use COVID as a bad faith excuse to keep Republicans away.

According to Detroit officials, only Republicans carry COVID.

If someone came to vote on election day and the system showed that an absentee ballot had already been received, possibly due to voter fraud, the official training to poll workers was to mislead voters into casting a provisional ballot that would be destroyed. According to de Angeli this was the instruction from City of Detroit worker “Miss Tyra.” 

These audio recordings were so explosive that the far-left Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel sent a ‘cease and desist’ letter to Big League/Trejo to demand that they take the letter down, otherwise they would face criminal prosecution! That story was exclusively broken by the Gateway Pundit earlier this month.

de Angeli went through multiple trainings for Detroit Poll Workers and recorded the trainings on his phone. “It occurred to me that something interesting might be said” during the training.

At both trainings, the instructors were proudly telling official Detroit poll workers how to prevent Republican poll challengers from seeing ballots so they could not inspect them, and could not perform their legal duties to prevent voter fraud.

Instructors trained poll workers to call 9-1-1 or the police if Republicans did things they did not like.

de Angeli says that he was unable to get hired as a Republican poll worker because he followed the official process, which he believes was set up to specifically prevent Republicans from becoming poll workers.

This training also included instruction to accept any printout to verify identity so that someone could vote, a process that he said lacked any security. 

Detroit election security was such a joke, according to de Angeli, the tabulator passwords were taped on the machines and were simply the election date: 11032020. “I assume that was the password on all machines citywide.” In the trainings, he noted that it was obvious that these had been the password used for YEARS. The machines also required a ‘dongle’, an insertable device, along with the password to operate the machines but de Angeli said he felt the level of election security was a JOKE.

According to de Angeli there was no effective voter security in Detroit.

He was instructed to let people vote twice with duplicate entries in the voter.

“Once a ballot is given and goes into the tabulator, there’s no way to determine which one is which.”

When asked if one could catch voter fraud in Michigan’s elections, “I don’t think there’s any way to do that.”

“There was no way to enforce the rules.”

de Angeli also notes that there was specific tape used to process ‘challenged ballots’ and count them along with all the others. And he said the official training told poll workers to effectively ignore ballot challenges, a prediction that matches many other eyewitness accounts on election night at the TCF Center.

Republicans were kept out of being poll workers, a more official position that would have given them a better chance to protect the vote. Oddly, he also reports that many of the poll workers at the trainings he attended were teenaged young men. He was told by instructors that many of the overall poll workers were teen men.

Many witnesses have described that Detroit’s counting boards at TCF Center were incredibly unbalanced, with others being told that ‘not enough Republicans applied to be poll workers’ and many were turned away. 

According to de Angeli, it was DELIBERATE that Republicans were prevented from being in the room.

“Exactly what we were concerned with, ended up happening.” 

“The only way they acted the way they did, was if you were trying to fraud the vote. They were willing to do anything.

Social media companies have deleted #DetroitLeaks. PolitiFact tried to shamelessly ‘debunk’ the series by quoting the Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey, and by making wild factual claims without citation.

We Have Immune Systems, New York Times Reveals

Scrub and spray everything with chemicals, bathe in Purrell, mask up, stand no nearer to anyone else than six feet, stay away from crowds, douse yourself with alcohol, wash your hands and face raw, protect yourself from germs at all costs. 

Some nations are closed completely. No one in or out. 

We panic about “cases” even when they say nothing about severe consequences. Avoidance and finally suppression are the watchwords of the day, for a virus that is relatively mild by any historical standard, as Holman Jenkins just explained:

U.S. government scientists now estimate that 40% of cases are asymptomatic and 80% of symptomatic cases are mild—in short, 88% of subjects don’t know they are infected or have no great incentive to find out if they are suffering from Covid or some more familiar bug.

We could also mention the 99.9% survival rate, and that doesn’t consider the wildly disproportionate risk between the sick and healthy. 

Is this an experiment? Yes, and likely a deadly one. 

What precisely are we doing to ourselves? What are we doing to children? 

Early in the pandemic, doctors went on the national stage to frame it up clearly: we are wrecking our immune systems and making ourselves vulnerable to more serious pathogens later. 

The great discovery that viruses must be owned to be controlled was an achievement of 20th century cell biology. It’s the Godfather rule: keep your friends close but your enemies closer. It’s counterintuitive, which is precisely why it took thousands of years to discover, and a century to educate people about the problem of the conduct of public health. 

But this year, starting soon after lockdowns, this wisdom strangely seemed to have vanished from the public mind. Did we just succumb to a strange anti-science hysteria?

Who knows, but if you read the New York Times carefully, and look past the insufferable political bias, what you find is something that will shock many people. 

The article in question is Quarantine May Negatively Affect Kids’ Immune Systems. It’s by By Donna L. Farber and Thomas Connors and Columbia University. 

Let’s just quote a few salient passages here.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the world is unwittingly conducting what amounts to the largest immunological experiment in history on our own children. We have been keeping children inside, relentlessly sanitizing their living spaces and their hands and largely isolating them. In doing so, we have prevented large numbers of them from becoming infected or transmitting the virus. But in the course of social distancing to mitigate the spread, we may also be unintentionally inhibiting the proper development of children’s immune systems….Immunological memory and tolerance learned during childhood serves as the basis for immunity and health throughout adulthood.

Just so we are clear, we are doing something to children that will affect their immune systems for the rest of their lives? That’s what the writer says. 

The article then continues and actually invokes the great taboo word of our age: exposure. It’s good. Exposure is good. It is necessary. It is needed. Not bad. Good. 

However, for memory T cells to become functionally mature, multiple exposures may be necessary, particularly for cells residing in tissues such as the lung and intestines, where we encounter numerous pathogens. These exposures typically and naturally occur during the everyday experiences of childhood — such as interactions with friends, teachers, trips to the playground, sports — all of which have been curtailed or shut down entirely during efforts to mitigate viral spread. As a result, we are altering the frequency, breadth and degree of exposures that are crucial for immune memory development.

Okay, now it is time for the writer to invoke a bit of memorable scientific knowledge. It’s a beautiful paragraph with a stunning opening sentence. 

Failing to train our immune systems properly can have serious consequences. When laboratory mice raised in nearly sterile conditions were housed together in the same cage with pet mice raised in standard conditions, some of the laboratory mice succumbed to pathogens that the pet mice were able to fight off. Additional studies of the microbiome — the bacteria that normally inhabit our intestines and other sites — have shown that mice raised in germ-free conditions or in the presence of antibiotics had reduced and altered immune responses to many types of pathogens. These studies suggest that for establishing a healthy immune system, the more diverse and frequent the encounters with antigens, the better.

Remember that absolutely public hysteria about alleged peanut allergies to the point that if we ate one on a plane people could die? Check this out:

Introduction of peanuts to infants resulted in reduced incidence of peanut allergy, while avoidance had the opposite effect of promoting unwanted, severe allergic immune responses to peanuts.

The article concludes with a perfunctory endorsement of masking (poor kids!), else it wouldn’t have been published, but ends with this riposte:

The sooner we can safely restore the normal experiences of childhood, interacting with other children and — paradoxically — with pathogens and diverse microorganisms, the better we can ensure their ability to thrive as adults in this changing world.

Really, all this is something my mother knows. She taught it to me. Her mother taught it to her. They were all taught it in school. The knowledge has not been deprecated. It just strangely evaporated. Or perhaps censored. I don’t know. I do know this article is a welcome relief from the poppycock of mysophobia that has taken over the public square. 

Imagine wrecking the immune systems of children for a lifetime for a disease that poses almost zero risk to their lives. I call that immoral. Deeply so. People will be suffering for many decades due to this bout of anti-science hysteria. 

It takes one’s breath away to contemplate the scale of the destruction these lockdowns and quarantines have caused, particularly among the most vulnerable. It’s not just depression, poverty, and demoralization of living in the midst of near-universal violations of human rights. As it turns out, we could be biologically dooming a whole generation too. 

Get those kids out there! You get out there too! Sooner the better.

“These People Were Vicious – I Saw All Kinds of Illegal Behavior” – Michigan Election Witness Who Saw 4 AM Illegal Ballot Drop for Biden Speaks Out (VIDEO)

Also Saw Multiple Late Night Ballot Dumps!

Andrew Sitto, Republican poll challenger at the TCF Center in Detroit, saw poll workers filling out votes for the Democrats on election night!

Official Detroit poll workers stole votes by marking non-Biden votes for Biden, Sitto says.

“I saw all types of illegal behavior.”

SITTO ALSO SAW THE 4AM BIDEN BALLOT DROP!

He describes 4am ballots being brought to the counting tables and spread out.

They would run the same ballots through the tabulators multiple times, “we were told to look for this” Sitto says. When they went through a second time, they were committing voter fraud according to Sitto. 

Other witnesses have described the ballot duplication process, and thousands of spare ballots laying around with an official duplication process at the TCF Center. 

Explosively, Sitto says: “I didn’t see any ballots with legitimate reasons to be duplicated. Every ballot was normal” when it came in. 

“The whole thing is illegal. The whole night was illegal.”

Sitto believes he and another poll challenger saw blatant voter fraud at one of the duplication tables, where poll workers are supposed to copy votes precisely from damaged ballots onto new ones. He saw the poll workers duplicating a mixed-ticket ballot while a group of Democrat operatives distracted and forced the Republican poll challenger away from the table. “The moment [the Republican poll challenger] looked away, they filled in the Democrat ticket.”

Sitto personally saw voter fraud in favor of Joe Biden in Detroit.

Sitto also described seeing poll workers running the same stacks of ballots multiple times though a tabulator. He also said poll workers grabbed handfuls of empty ballots and hid them at their tables. All poll workers had pens, which he believes could have been used to illegally fill out the blank ballots.

“I saw them taking empty ballots that should only be used for duplicates, stashing them and probably voting them later straight-ticket for Joe Biden.”

Sitto described pens at most tables, and poll workers regularly grabbing duplicate ballots for no valid reason. The pens would be necessary if they were manually filling out ballots at the counting tables.

“These people were vicious.”

“I’ve made reports about this” Sitto says, though there’s no indication if any official has pursued Sitto’s claims of witnessed voter fraud.

Voter fraud is the “illegal interference with the process of an election” and Sitto is in a long line of other witnesses who have said they personally witnessed illegal interference in the process of Detroit’s elections. 

Describing the official Detroit officials conspiring with left-wing poll workers to fraud the vote: “It was a collective attack.”

When the exhausted Republican poll challengers took a break on Wednesday, Sitto said the Michigan state government notified the TCF personnel that COVID-related occupancy restrictions would now be enforced on the facility. As a result, he and other Republican poll challengers were locked out at a crucial moment, and he witnessed security coming in and the windows being covered up.

“They counted the military ballots in the most secret way they could,” he said. 

However, Sitto noticed that some people were allowed back in during that time. “The Dems and the media were welcomed in,” he said.

“There were two systems. There was their system and our system. Their system was very open and welcoming to their people. And our system was ‘Fall in line. Follow the rules. COVID restrictions.’”

Matching other statements, Sitto described that his challenges to illegal ballots were ignored.

“They would just continue on.”

If Sitto’s account is accurate, it could explain the numerous eyewitness accounts of the Democrats harassing, stalking, and intimidating Republican volunteers, effectively obstructing them from viewing the counting and duplication operations.

Sitto also described that, as a Republican, he and his family requested absentee ballots and never received them.

The Value is In the Ideas

Recently, my wife and I spent a good chunk of the day assembling IKEA furniture. I’m happy to report that we did it without involving medical professionals or law enforcement. I count that as a pretty big win considering my technical proclivities.

As we worked, my every neuron screamed, “This is not your comparative advantage or even your absolute advantage.” I had to hush my inner voice because assembling IKEA furniture was an opportunity to reflect, once again, on just what makes our world incredible.

What makes IKEA furniture valuable? Is it the labor that went into its manufacture? The capital goods and tools the workers were using? The wood and screws that make up my new desk? Or the metal and petroleum derivatives that make up my new chair?

No. The ideas they embody, not the materials they contain, are where the value lies. The idea of fitting wood and metal together just so makes my new desk suitable for my purposes. My desk lamp’s designer, for example, was named right on the box. Tilling the ground, swinging a hammer, operating a table saw, or even steering a container ship certainly contributed. However, the lamp gets most of its value from its design.

Then there are the IKEA instructions. I’ve written before that my favorite tool is my wallet because I’m not very good at anything that involves swinging a hammer. Like LEGO instructions, IKEA instructions are “written” with a series of images and arrows, making it so that anyone in any culture can understand them. The ability to give directions that are so clear as to be practically impossible to misunderstand is another underappreciated talent. I’m sure that with a little reflection, we can all think of a lot of examples in which we have lost time, money, or something else because we communicated poorly. In academia, one can build an entire career writing papers about what an eminent scholar really meant. How much trouble and confusion–and how many books and scholarly articles–could have been avoided had writers just been a bit clearer? Or had readers read just a bit more charitably and carefully?

Attractive IKEA furniture is designed in Sweden by part of a Dutch conglomerate and manufactured in China. It comes to the United States in sleek packaging containing easy-to-follow instructions. The process represents the very essence of how the West grew rich. We came up with new ideas for the “wave of gadgets” that swept across England and its overseas extensions. It wasn’t because of anything in the soil, which had been there for eons. Nor was it because of sheer brute strength. It happened because we unleashed our creativity.

Of course, assembling IKEA furniture as such probably won’t give you a profound sense of meaning, just like switching breakfast cereals or drinking more beer won’t cure your existential dread. That’s the realm of theology and philosophy. IKEA desks, chairs, and lamps are, however, nice to have. Their value, again, is not in the brute force or raw materials required for their manufacture but in the ideas they embody. Cooking shows and the “Creme Fraiche” episode of South Park show you creative chefs’ twist on pizza, potato salad, and pots of chili.

When you go into IKEA or visit their website, you get to see their designers’ twists on bookshelves, office chairs, and task lamps. Which desk and lamp recipes “win?” It’s not the ones that require the most labor or the most savings. In the long run, it might not even be the ones that capture the imaginations of design aficionados. The winning recipes are the ones that get enough “votes” in the form of the dollars people spend.

Dominion Rep Who Scanned Ballots in Georgia County Where Thousands of Trump Votes Were Uncounted Also Worked for Kamala Harris

A Dominion representative who has been scanning ballots in Floyd County, Georgia, appears to have worked as an official photographer for Kamala Harris’ campaign last year.

Over 3,000 votes, the majority of which were for President Trump, went initially uncounted in the county.

Aric Thompson, Dominion representative and one of men scanning ballots there, worked as an official photographer for Senator Harris in 2019, according to his LinkedIn profile. He even has a portfolio online with photos he took of her.

Additionally, there are reports that no observers were present for some of the scanning.

This is one of 2 men scanning in ballots in Floyd County. He worked for Kamala Harris. According to Rome City Commissioner Democrat Wendy Davis, & Floyd County GOP Chair Luke Martin, no observers were present for some of the scanning. Over 3000 uncounted votes found. @RealAmVoice pic.twitter.com/DQnTXDW7GP

— Heather Mullins – Real America’s Voice (RAV-TV) (@TalkMullins) November 29, 2020

“This is one of 2 men scanning in ballots in Floyd County. He worked for Kamala Harris. According to Rome City Commissioner Democrat Wendy Davis, & Floyd County GOP Chair Luke Martin, no observers were present for some of the scanning. Over 3000 uncounted votes found,” Real America’s Voice News reporter Heather Mullins tweeted.

Mullins also shared social media posts from Thompson in which he bashed President Donald Trump.

Earlier this month, the Board of Elections in Georgia’s Floyd County voted to fire Chief of Elections Clerk Robert Brady after officials found thousands of uncounted ballots.

Meeting minutes from Floyd County dated Feb 11, 2020.

“New Business: Mr.Brady introduced Aric Thompson as our on-site technician from Dominion.” @RealAmVoice https://t.co/vWuwa5EGhf pic.twitter.com/Vph4t9eVPx

— Heather Mullins – Real America’s Voice (RAV-TV) (@TalkMullins) November 29, 2020

Thompson was photographed scanning ballots with Brady the day after the election.

Fox reports that “Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger blamed the problem on Floyd County election officials failing to upload votes from a memory card in a ballot-scanning machine.”

Michigan Judge Who Tossed Pro-Trump Voter Fraud Suit Caught Releasing Child Molesters

On November 13, Judge Timothy Kenny dismissed a lawsuit brought by witnesses to the voter fraud at the TCF Center in Detroit, because the witnesses were “not credible.” 

This statement, dismissing Dominion Whistleblower Melissa Carone for example, has been used by dishonest fact-check organizations in order to say that a Judge found their witness statements, “not credible.” 

Yet now that Judge has been exposed as using COVID as a pretext to release violent criminals before they served their time. 

The Detroit News broke the story, and they have not been given all the records they requested. The only time period covered so far has been from March through September 21, meaning there could be many more.

This includes alleged child molesters. And violent felons.

And it includes an alleged rapist who went on to allegedly rape while freed by Judge Kenny.

According to Wayne County jail officials, eight of the inmates who’d been released from the jail from March to September because of the virus have been charged with new crimes they allegedly committed after being freed. Among the charges: Criminal sexual conduct, home invasion, drug possession, and breaking and entering.

Tyler Cole allegedly held three women prisoner at knifepoint and raped them less than four months after he’d been released from the Wayne County Jail

The Judge promised in March that he would not release violent offenders, but he did anyway

The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office told the Detroit News: “Judge Kenny is ultimately the person determining who will be released. Prosecutor Worthy believes that Judge Kenny has been very responsible about not releasing violent criminals.”

…released from the Wayne County Jail were Jameel Bradley and Kaylin Drewery, both of whom were convicted of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, meaning their victims were either aged 13-16, or the abusers were in positions of authority over them.  

Timothy M. Kenny is the chief judge of the 3rd Circuit Court in Wayne County, Michigan. He started as a judge in 1996. Kenny’s biography lists that he’s part-time adjunct faculty at Madonna University, a private Catholic University in Livonia, Michigan

NEWT GINGRICH: 2020 Election May Be Biggest Presidential Theft Since 1824

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is an authority on American history. When it comes to the 2020 election, he is convinced that fraud took place and that we as a country, haven’t seen anything like it in almost 100 years.

Gingrich made his case on Twitter.

Take a look:

The more data comes out on vote anomalies that clearly are not legitimate the more it looks like 2020 may be the biggest Presidential theft since Adams and Clay robbed Andrew Jackson in 1824. State legislatures should demand recounts

— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) November 27, 2020

Every Republican state legislator should read Patrick Basham’s analysis https://t.co/3mUFZtD1Y8 and demand an oversight committee to review their state’s vote. Basham makes clear the election was almost certainly stolen in 5 states. Every Americanm should be worried by the theft.

— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) November 28, 2020

Gingrich has also written about this.

From the Epoch Times:

The Thieves Who Stole Our Election Got Sloppy

Laziness leads to sloppiness, and sloppiness is how the most brazen heist in American history is being exposed.

Stealing the 2020 election was a mammoth undertaking, involving widespread lawlessness and illicit partnerships between private actors and public officials. They’ve been working to cover their tracks since Election Day, but they didn’t work fast enough. Now, the courts need to stop them from destroying any more evidence so that the people of Pennsylvania—and the rest of the country—can accurately assess the ramifications of their wrongdoing.

Explosive new litigation filed in federal district court on Nov. 21 details and documents a wide variety of illegal practices that were used to inflate the number of votes received by Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, including disparate treatment of voters based on where they live and outright manipulation of Pennsylvania’s voter registration system by partisan activists.

An unprecedented number of mail-in and absentee ballots were cast this year, and practically everyone expected that this would result in a higher-than-usual rate of ballots being rejected for various flaws, such as lacking a secrecy envelope or missing information.

Democrats have a real problem on their hands here.

Even if Biden is sworn in as president, millions of people will not view him as legitimate.

Glenn Chong: “Michelle, the term pre-loaded is exactly the right term I would use right here in Manila.  Pre-loaded votes.  Pre-loaded ballots.  Again, I would point this out to our audience look at these pieces of documents.  They are signed.  We have 70,000  voters.  Exactly 4,140 ballots were already scanned by 140 voting machines days before the election. That’s over six and seven percent.”

EXCLUSIVE: Roger Stone Responds to Second Hit Piece by Far Left on Preposterous Georgia Accusations

Featured image altered from The Daily Beast

On Tuesday the far-left Daily Beast reported that a Roger Stone was behind effort to encourage Republicans not to vote in the January Senate Vote in Georgia.  This was refuted by Roger Stone but it hasn’t stopped far-left Salon from parroting the same story.

After pushing the totally fake news Steele dossier, the ‘Beast’ is back at it.

The Daily Beast reported:

Conservative operatives and a super PAC with ties to infamous GOP dirty trickster Roger Stone appear to be calling for Trump supporters to punish Republicans by sitting out Georgia’s crucial Senate runoffs or writing in Trump’s name instead. And though their efforts remain on the party’s fringes, the trajectory of the movement has Republicans fearful that it could cost the GOP control of the Senate.

The most aggressive call to boycott or cast protest ballots in the two runoff races has, so far, come from a dormant pro-Trump super PAC with ties to Stone, which unveiled a new initiative to retaliate against the Republican Party’s supposed turncoats by handing Democrats control of the U.S. Senate.

However, Roger Stone contacted us and stated unequivocally that this report by the Beast was false. Below are Stone’s comments on the piece:

This story by the Daily Beast is a fraud. The report falsely attributes a moribund political action committee that I helped form in 2016 – The Committee For American Sovereignty.

Let me be clear. No one I know and nobody that I am affiliated with is responsible for posting this website:

https://www.writeintrumpforgeorgiasenate.com/

This is clearly a classic left-wing dirty trick designed to drain votes from the Republican candidates for the US Senate in the coming Georgia runoff election. I have never urged Republicans or supporters of the President not to vote for the two US Senate candidates in Georgia in the vitally important upcoming runoff election.

Stone also provided attorney letters from attorneys related to this article. But this hasn’t stopped the far-left from pushing this story along.  Now Salon is pushing the fake news story.

Stone provided us his response to this story:

These leftists are unbelievable. Even after they know that the ‘committee for American sovereignty’ did not post the crude website urging Trump supporters to write Donald Trump’s name in in the Georgia US Senate runoff on January 5th, a little research shows that the domain is owned by someone in Canada.

No one I am associated with and no one I know posted this website attributed falsely to be “tied to me.

Facts be damned  SALON now doubles down and reports the same LIE as the Daily Beast.

The extreme language and open bigotry of Homepage of this “dirty tricks” website designed to siphon votes from Senator Kelly Loeffler and Senator David Purdue in the vital upcoming runoff elections is the tell. It’s a fraud!

Here is the FAKE website

https://www.writeintrumpforgeorgiasenate.com/

Here is the Daily beast story revised since the committee for sovereignty’s lawyer contacted them to tell them their story was inaccurate after the publication of the gateway pundit story.  (The Daily Beast’s claim that they contacted me for comment and I did not respond is False!)

https://www.thedailybeast.com/roger-stone-tied-group-threatens-gop-if-trump-goes-down-so-does-your-senate-majority

It’s not only voter suppression It’s a dirty trick and they’re using my name is clickbait while completely miss representing my strong public support for both Republican candidates for the Senate in Georgia.

Here is the GATEWAY Pundit story:

Roger Stone Refutes Far-Left Daily Beast Hit Piece on Him and a PAC Not Active Since 2016

Here is the SALON story:

https://www.salon.com/2020/11/24/roger-stone-linked-group-urges-voters-to-write-in-trump-in-georgia-runoffs-as-revenge-against-gop/

Can CNN be far behind ?

Roger Stone

Let’s see if Salon retracts its false report. We’re not holding our breath.

Sidney Powell’s Georgia Emergency Declaratory Judgment Demands Seizure of Every Voting Machine in State

Attorney Sidney Powell filed her 104 page BOMBSHELL COMPLAINT of massive fraud in the Georgia election on Wednesday night.

Flynn Attorney Abigail Frye broke the news:

The Kraken came down to Georgia on this Thanksgiving Eve in the form of a 104 pg BOMBSHELL complaint exposing the massive fraud that overwhelmed the 2020 Georgia Elections. Georgia, you are most certainly on our minds. Link to filing to come, stay tuned!

— Abigail Frye ⭐⭐⭐ (@abigailcfrye) November 26, 2020

The Georgia lawsuit was originally posted at Sidney Powell’s Defending the Republic website.

The lawsuit contained several bombshells as was reported earlier.

As Jenny Beth Martin reported the lawsuit includes an “emergency declaratory judgment that voting machines be seized and impounded immediately for a forensic audit.”

GA UPDATE: Lawsuit filed by Sidney Powell asks the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia for an “emergency declaratory judgment that voting machines be seized and impounded immediately for a forensic audit.”

Every dominion machine must be seized & audited.

— Jenny Beth Martin (@jennybethm) November 29, 2020

The Western Journal has more:

Powell is clearly not playing games, having recently announced a lawsuit in Georgia that calls for the actual seizure of voting machines that were used during the election.

Powell’s lawsuit claims the use of Dominion voting software, “ballot stuffing” and other actions illegally gave Democrat Joe Biden a lead in the state.

It asks the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia for an “emergency declaratory judgment that voting machines be seized and impounded immediately for a forensic audit.”…

…“The scheme and artifice to defraud was for the purpose of illegally and fraudulently manipulating the vote count to make certain the election of Joe Biden as President of the United States,” the lawsuit says. “The fraud was executed by many means, but the most fundamentally troubling, insidious, and egregious is the systemic adaptation of old-fashioned ‘ballot-stuffing.’ It has now been amplified and rendered virtually invisible by computer software created and run by domestic and foreign actors for that very purpose.”

EXCLUSIVE: President Trump Is After the Individual or Individuals Who Voted Illegally in Wisconsin – As Gateway Pundit Exposed Earlier

This morning we showed absentee votes in Wisconsin that all had the same initials “MLW”.  More than 2,000 of these votes were found.  This afternoon the President tweeted that the recount in Wisconsin was about finding the people who voted illegally. 

We now know that there were at least 2,000 people who signed Wisconsin ballots as “MLW” or there was one individual who signed them all.

According to our source on the ground: More than 2,000 fake votes were found at the Wisconsin Recount in Dane County on Friday!

* On Black Friday, there were so many Trump observers that two dozen of them had nowhere to sit, and had to back upstairs and watch on closed circuit TV.

* Thousands of fake votes were found!

The signature “MLW” was used on the the fake votes.
These initials were found on thousands of “votes” by “indefinitely confined” people.

Joe Biden reportedly won Wisconsin after a huge dump of votes were dropped in the middle of the night, Biden only votes, to put him ahead of President Donald Trump.  Joe Biden currently ‘leads’ the state by around 20,000 votes.

In this final photo, the fake votes are the two piles on the right.

President Trump tweeted this afternoon that the purpose of the recount in Wisconsin was not about finding mistakes in the count, it was about finding the people who voted illegally:

The Wisconsin recount is not about finding mistakes in the count, it is about finding people who have voted illegally, and that case will be brought after the recount is over, on Monday or Tuesday. We have found many illegal votes. Stay tuned!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 28, 2020

The plot thickens.  Who is the person or persons who signed off on thousands of ballots in Wisconsin illegally?

Pennsylvania Supreme Court Tosses GOP Lawsuit on Absentee Ballots, Lifts Block on Certification of Election

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Saturday evening reversed a lower court’s block on certifying the state’s elections issued Friday night, dismissing with prejudice a lawsuit brought by Republican candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives that sought to have the results nullified over constitutional concerns about a 2019 change in absentee ballot rules. The lead plaintiffs in the case are Rep. Mike Kelly and Sean Parnell.

GOP House candidate Sean Parnell is welcomed on stage by President Trump and Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) at rally in Moon Township, PA, September 23, photo by Kristinn Taylor

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court said the suit was dismissed because the plaintiffs failed to file their case in a “timely manner” when Act 77 was passed in 2019.

Pages from the lawsuit were posted online:

REVEALED: Video Released of Phone Call Recording to Chinese Manufacturer Requesting a Bulk Order of Fake US 2020 Ballots

A video was released on Friday in Mandarin Chinese of a phone call request for fake ballots customized by Chinese factory.

The manufacturer is reportedly in Kwangtung, China.

In the video a caller is heard requesting a bulk order of ballots to ship to the United States.

The video is just starting to make the rounds.
Here is the video with the translation.

FYI- Our Mandarin speaker confirmed the translation is accurate.

From a TGP reader: Our friend happens to be Chinese, but does not like the Chinese Communist Party. My wife showed me an intriguing video which I have enclosed. There is an English translation on the side… It is too bad that there is not a way to get a closer view of the ballot to see the candidates! Then you could detect the destination state. Hopefully you have some digital experts that solve the problem.

26 Pennsylvania House Republicans, 8 Senators Call for Withdrawing Certification of Presidential Electors

The Democrat-Marxist machine in Pennsylvania stopped counting votes on election night because Joe Biden was getting annihilated by President Trump.

Trump was up by nearly 700,000 votes on election night after the polls closed.

Within 48 hours of Election Day, hundreds of thousands of ballots were counted for Joe Biden while crooked Democrat elections officials blocked GOP poll watchers from observing the vote count.

The corrupt Pennsylvania Secretary of State and Democrat Governor Wolf rushed to certify the election results, but a Commonwealth judge said not so fast.

On Wednesday the Pennsylvania state legislature held a hearing on the 2020 election issues and irregularities.

One witness described the huge “spikes” in Pennsylvania during the hearing and the crowd gasped.

.@RudyGiuliani: Of the 600K votes added during curious “spikes” in PA, how many went to Biden?

Witness: “I think our figures were about 570-some-odd-thousand.”

“And how much for Trump?

Witness: “I think it was a little over 3,200.”

Rudy Giuliani pointed out two huge gaps with Pennsylvania’s mail-in ballots.

“You have two major gaps — you have the 672,770 votes that were not inspected by anyone secretly put into the ballot box and then you have this gap that I don’t understand between the mail-in ballots. You’ve sent out: 1.8 million and the number you counted: 2.5 million!” Rudy said.

On Friday the Pennsylvania State legislature filed a resolution to dispute the statewide 2020 election results.

Pennsylvania state senator Doug Mastriano, a retired Colonel of the Unites States Army, led the way.

“If this is the case, under Article II, Section 1.2 of the US Constitution, the state legislature has the sole authority to direct the manner of selecting delegates to the Electoral College.” he said.

What the Hasidim Tell Us About Being Americans

There’s an old joke (I first heard it in the 1960’s) about a Brooklyn Hasid who decides to take a bus trip to Florida. On the way, the bus makes a rest stop at a rural Georgia gas station/grocery store. The Hasid gets off the bus to stretch his legs and notices a group of “good old boys” intently staring at him. After a minute or two of this, the Hasid walks up to the group and says, “Vat’s da matta? You neva saw a Yankee before?”

On November 8, in defiance of New York City and State edicts, the Satmar Hasidim held a wedding attended by thousands of guests standing shoulder to shoulder in an indoor venue. The Hasidim went to unusual lengths to arrange the event without the authorities becoming aware of it. Invitations were by word of mouth only. Community newspapers cooperated by not publishing any advance notices. 

After the fact, officials announced that they would levy a $15,000 fine on the wedding’s “organizers.” These “organizers” might well reply to those censorious officials, “What’s the matter? You’ve never seen Americans before?”

America was founded upon principles of human rights and liberty delineated in the Declaration of Independence. These rights include the right to assemble, to freely associate, to conduct commerce, and to practice one’s religion. The United States government was established by the Constitution, which attempts to codify the principles of the Declaration of Independence. Neither document specifies exceptions to human rights and liberty based on “science,” pandemic, or “emergency.” 

Of course, we each have the right to be free of unknowing or unwanted exposure to deadly infectious disease carried by another but that does not deprive us of the right to associate with such carriers or potential carriers if we so choose. Nor do we have the right to restrict the rights of anyone who is not known to be a disease carrier, any more than we have the right to arbitrarily restrict the rights of anyone who might be a criminal.

The Hasidic movement was founded in the Ukraine in the 18th century. Hasidim have had more than two centuries of practice defying hateful, overreaching authority – Tsars, Cossacks, kings, emperors, dumas, dictators, and prime ministers. In historical memory they have seen and resisted and survived much worse than Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio. This history of living according to their personal beliefs and civil disobedience in the face of rights-crushing authority is quintessentially American. It is little wonder that Hasidim, who came to America as an endangered species, have thrived and prospered in the U.S.

The Bill of Rights forbids the government to establish a religion. It’s too bad that there is no similar explicit ban on establishment of “science.” For too many Americans, “Science” has taken on the mantle of “established” truth worthy of legal enforcement that religion wore prior to the late 18th century. It is no accident then that “Science” has come to play the evil role, justifying state crimes, that “Religion” played in earlier times. 

Indeed, the worst crimes of the 20th century were perpetrated by states in the name of “Science,” specifically “scientific” racism and eugenics. These crimes were committed in the U.S. and, even more horribly, in Europe. The views of today’s Hasidim toward government edicts guided by “Science” are strongly colored by the fact that millions of their ancestors were lawfully murdered in Europe by a government guided by that day’s “Science” of eugenics and racism. 

It is no coincidence that today’s Hasidim will have none of it. Nor should they. Nor should we.

The principles of human rights and liberty proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence and (however imperfectly) codified in the Constitution are philosophical and moral principles, not scientific. The truth of human rights and liberty is “self-evident.” The truth of scientific inquiry is contingent, always subject to change based on new evidence. The contingent, empiric truth of science has no power to supersede the enduring, self-evident truth of human rights and liberty. 

It is the philosophy of human rights and liberty applied consistently and equally to all that makes America America. If it takes Hasidim, who live according to ancient Biblical and Rabbinic law and 18th century Eastern European customs and fashion, and who may choose to ignore even the best scientific advice, the better to pursue their own happiness, to remind us of this, well, more power to them. L’Haim, to life!

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: THOUSANDS of Fake Votes Found at Wisconsin Recount in Dane County — Photos and Report from GOP Observer

The Wisconsin recount of 2020 election ballots is currently underway in Wisconsin.

According to our source on the ground: More than 2,000 of fake votes were found at Wisconsin Recount in Dane County on Friday!

* On Black Friday, there were so many Trump observers that two dozen of them had nowhere to sit, and had to back upstairs and watch on closed circuit TV.

* Thousands of fake votes were found!

The signature “MLW” was used on the the fake votes.
These initials were found on thousands of “votes” by “indefinitely confined” people.

Joe Biden reportedly won Wisconsin after a huge dump of votes were dropped in the middle of the night of Biden only votes to put him ahead of President Donald Trump.
Joe Biden currently leads the state by around 20,000 votes.

Johns Hopkins Takes Down Article Showing US Deaths in 2020 No Different than Prior Years – It Doesn’t Fit their ‘We’re All Gonna Die’ Narrative

Johns Hopkins University ‘newsletter’ throws work of graduate student under the bus while claiming ‘real’ science from the WHO and CDC is more accurate than the facts. 

We reported yesterday how an article in a newsletter published at Johns Hopkins University showed that total deaths in the US have not increased dramatically in 2020 when compared to prior years.  This article was taken down.  The university could not let it stand:

Johns Hopkins Study Mysteriously Disappears after it Revealed, In Spite of COVID, No More Deaths in 2020 Than In Prior Years

We were provided more on this unfortunate situation overnight.  The university claims the following in regards to taking down the post showing deaths have not increased in 2020 due to the China coronavirus [emphasis ours]:

By YANNI GU |

[No doubt Yanni has connections with Mainland China.  Just a hunch.  We say this in part due to the tight connections between Johns Hopkins and China.]

November 27, 2020 Editor’s Note: After The News-Letter published this article on Nov. 22, it was brought to our attention that our coverage of Genevieve Briand’s presentation “COVID-19 Deaths: A Look at U.S. Data” has been used to support dangerous inaccuracies that minimize the impact of the pandemic.

[Of course no mention of what ‘dangerous inaccuracies’ have occurred – just that they have.]

We decided on Nov. 26 to retract this article to stop the spread of misinformation, as we noted on social media. However, it is our responsibility as journalists to provide a historical record. We have chosen to take down the article from our website, but it is available here as a PDF.

[The university labels its published work as the spread of misinformation and takes it down.]

In accordance with our standards for transparency, we are sharing with our readers how we came to this decision. The News-Letter is an editorially and financially independent, student-run publication. Our articles and content are not endorsed by the University or the School of Medicine, and our decision to retract this article was made independently.

[Does anyone believe that the decision to take down the article was made ‘independently’?  This is transparency?]

Briand’s study should not be used exclusively in understanding the impact of COVID-19, but should be taken in context with the countless other data published by Hopkins, the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

[Of course the WHO which claimed the mortality rates for the China coronavirus were 3.4% should be trusted!  We knew this was a lie in March.  Johns Hopkins was silent.]

WHO Finally Agrees Our March Analysis was Correct: The WHO’s Early Coronavirus Mortality Rate Was Irresponsibly Overstated and We Called Them Out with The CORRECT NUMBERS!

As assistant director for the Master’s in Applied Economics program at Hopkins, Briand is neither a medical professional nor a disease researcher. At her talk, she herself stated that more research and data are needed to understand the effects of COVID-19 in the U.S.

[Johns Hopkins throws the author with an exceptional and courageous paper under the bus.  She’s doesn’t have the smarts to do a proper study they claim and therefore should not be trusted like the WHO and CDC.]

Briand was quoted in the article as saying, “All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers.” This claim is incorrect and does not take into account the spike in raw death count from all causes compared to previous years. According to the CDC, there have been almost 300,000 excess deaths due to COVID-19. Additionally, Briand presented data of total U.S. deaths in comparison to COVID-19-related deaths as a proportion percentage, which trivializes the repercussions of the pandemic. This evidence does not disprove the severity of COVID-19; an increase in excess deaths is not represented in these proportionalities because they are offered as percentages, not raw numbers.

[Johns Hopkins discounts the results from the study and uses some bizarre chart to support their claims.  However, Briand’s report is consistent with the results of studies we published during the summer.]

EXCLUSIVE: Coronavirus Study Confirms, with Exception of New York and New Jersey, Overall Mortality Not Much Different Than a Bad Flu Season

Briand also claimed in her analysis that deaths due to heart diseases, respiratory diseases, influenza and pneumonia may be incorrectly categorized as COVID-19-related deaths. However, COVID-19 disproportionately affects those with preexisting conditions, so those with those underlying conditions are statistically more likely to be severely affected and die from the virus.

[This point doesn’t address Briand’s claims.  The point Briand is making is that many COVID categorized deaths are more properly related to other illnesses.  The CDC actually reported that only 6% of all COVID deaths are related to COVID alone.  The rest are related to other causes and on average 2-3 other causes.  We reported on this previously as well.]

SHOCK REPORT: This Week CDC Quietly Updated COVID-19 Numbers – Only 9,210 Americans Died From COVID-19 Alone – Rest Had Different Other Serious Illnesses

Because of these inaccuracies and our failure to provide additional information about the effects of COVID-19, The News-Letter decided to retract this article. It is our duty as a publication to combat the spread of misinformation and to enhance our fact-checking process. We apologize to our readers.

[We believe Ms. Briand was behind the most honest and courageous report coming out of Johns Hopkins this year.  She supports it with data.  Her report is substantiated from prior reports and the CDC itself.  But instead of giving the young scholar an award, they throw her under the bus because the narrative is not the picture Johns Hopkins and China want.]

You see, the only measurement we can use to really see the impact of COVID is overall deaths.  This is because we really have no faith in what deaths are classified as COVID due to issues with the classification process.  So by looking at overall deaths we see that overall deaths are not any higher than prior years.  This then indicates that the COVID is not as terrible as China and the US medical profession would like us to think.  This is why this report at Johns Hopkins had to be taken down.  It has nothing to do with the truth and everything to do with the message.

What happened to just studying and reporting the truth?

Blinded by a Blizzard of Data

There are lies, damned lies, and statistics. While this warning is never terribly far from the political surface, it should be axiomatic whenever anyone starts talking about Covid data. It has been years since a common pool of data has been so thoroughly mishandled by all sides, and this is sure to continue at least until a vaccine has been developed and delivered.

The surest sign that someone is playing fast and loose with statistics in order to push a particular point of view is the absence of context. And regardless of one’s position on the need for Covid lockdowns, one thing is clear: since the outset, the media have quoted Covid statistics with a consistent absence of context. The result has been to turn people who believe Covid is a significant danger into quivering cowards, and to cause people who believe Covid isn’t all that dangerous to dismiss the warnings entirely.

All the way back in March, when we were just realizing what we were up against, the media defaulted to the case fatality rate – the number of deaths out of confirmed cases. The World Health Organization estimated this would be over 3 percent. Some outlets were reporting case fatality rates above 10 percent. By comparison, the case fatality rate for the common flu is a mere fraction of a percent

On its face, a high case fatality rate leaves the uninformed reader thinking that the odds of dying from Covid are astronomical compared to the common flu. But in March very few people were being tested. To get tested for Covid, one generally had to be sick enough to be hospitalized. Those for whom symptoms were light or even nonexistent didn’t get tested. 

The result is that the reported Covid fatality rate was biased upward – early estimates had Covid more than 100 times deadlier than the flu. But, at this point, the whole exercise was like asking what fraction of the female population is in labor by surveying women in a maternity ward. That statistics were frightening, but without the necessary context, they were also meaningless.

By early April, the media was feeding people daily reports on mounting Covid deaths. Gaudy numbers with lots of zeros framed every screen, and they drew the same significant attention that massive death tolls always bring. The missing context here: The number of people who died on a typical day before Covid. 

At the April peak, more than 2,400 Americans were dying daily from Covid. But, before Covid, 7,800 Americans died daily. And that’s comparing the peak daily Covid deaths to average daily deaths in 2019. The average daily US Covid deaths since the outbreak occurred is around 870, or 10 percent of the number of deaths we would expect in the normal course of events. The number is concerning, but bodies were not piling up in the streets as many breathlessly predicted. 

The lack of context led people to believe that thousands of deaths per day was something out of the ordinary. More people were dying to be sure, but to understand what that meant would have required people to understand how many Americans die each day in the normal course of events. The American people generally have little idea, and the media doesn’t help matters. It is the fantastic, after all, that drives media behavior.

By mid-April, pictures of exponential growth were everywhere. But exponential growth is typical. Every disease outbreak shows exponential growth at the outset. And every disease outbreak shows a peak and decline following that exponential growth. Without context, one could take the growth to mean that we’d all be infected, and likely dead, in short order.

By May, Covid deaths were falling, apparently depriving the media of a story. But increased testing meant that more cases were being discovered, so the media shifted from breathlessly reporting daily deaths to breathlessly reporting daily infections. For their purposes, one was as good as the other.

But as was the case in March and April, context also mattered in May. There was no discussion of what “case” meant. A case could be anything from someone on a ventilator to someone showing no symptoms at all. Early data indicated that around 80 percent of Covid cases didn’t require hospitalization. The lack of context left the impression that each additional case was one more person on death’s door. 

Making matters worse, the increase in testing introduced a confound. By definition, the more people we test, the more cases we’ll find. What matters isn’t the number of new cases we find, but the number of new cases we find as a fraction of the number of new tests we conduct. Without the context of the number of new tests conducted, there is no way to know whether we are finding more cases because more people are getting infected, or we’re finding more cases because we’re doing more testing. 

In fact, in May and June, although the number of new Covid cases steadily rose, the percentage of tests coming back positive declined, indicating that the rising case numbers were due less to increased cases than to increased testing. And while the media says (correctly) that the number of daily cases in November is setting records, they do not report that this is largely due to increased testing. The fraction of tests that are coming back positive, while rising, is on par with what the US experienced in mid May.

We can blame this persistent lack of context on a perfect storm of politicians seeking to be “doing something,” media seeking to sell advertising, and people paying enough attention to be scared, but not enough to understand. 

From the beginning, politicians were caught between a rock and a hard place. Locking people and businesses down meant possibly saving lives from Covid, but it also meant losing lives and livelihoods to unemployment, poverty, depression, suicide, and domestic violence. Politicians had to choose wisely. Influencing their decisions was the fact that the ramifications of choosing incorrectly weren’t evenly weighted. 

If the disease were virulent and politicians failed to lock down the American people, it would be clear that the politicians had erred and the people would hold them accountable for the many deaths that would ensue. But if the disease were mild and politicians unnecessarily locked down the country, it would not be at all clear that the politicians had erred. They could always say that the disease would have been devastating had they not locked everyone and everything down. That relatively few people died was actually a sign that the politicians had done the right thing.

Whether right or wrong, the better option for the politicians was to lock down. But the people would not tolerate a lockdown if they believed that the virus was a mild threat. For the politicians to be able to execute what, for them, was the safer strategy, the people had to believe that were it not for the lockdowns, millions of Americans would die. One way to convince people of this is to present them with data taken out of context. 

Meanwhile, the media, ever on the lookout for ways to attract more eyeballs, had a stronger incentive to present the data in the worst possible light than to present context that made the data appear less scary.

While all of this may sound like an elaborate conspiracy, it isn’t. No one conspired to achieve this outcome. Politicians, people, and the media simply responded to the incentives in front of them. The outcome we got was entirely predictable.

And what will happen next is entirely predictable as well. Infections, we are told, are on the rise again.

Expect to see the politicians saying exactly the sorts of things they said in March and April. Expect the media to play the role of enabler once again. The only difference will be the response they get from the American people, which is the one group that seems to have a collective memory that reaches all the way back to March. They suffered the lies and the damned lies they were served. The same bungled use of statistics won’t work on them again.

There is no question that Covid is a serious disease, and that every life lost is cause for concern. But each one of us faces very real risks every day from all manner of things. What’s important is that we address each risk with commensurate care. That the media has consistently reported on Covid without appropriate context suggests that historians will look back on 2020 less for its outbreak of Covid than for its outbreak of hysteria.

Saturday’s Fun Fraud Facts: Seven Unexplainable Results that Reveal Democrats Didn’t Even Try to Hide Their Fraud

Today’s fun fraud facts from reader Terry P.

1) Biden won a record low 16.7% of counties in the US but had the most votes of any presidential candidate ever. 10 million more than Obama.

2) Voter turnout for every election in the past 100 years fell within 2 standard deviations but 2020 was above 3 standard deviations. This should happen roughly 1 in every 2,666 elections and is 99.7% indicative of voter fraud.

As we reported earlier — In the last 100 years every election fell within 2 standard deviations.
The 2020 election scores above 3 standard deviations.

That is to say, statistically speaking, we have 99.7% certainty on the November 2 that turnout would be between the two dashed green lines.

But it wasn’t.
And not only had this NEVER happened before in US history, but we have also NEVER been outside 2 standard deviations before!

Look at the voter turnout for Barack Obama. It was above average. But Basement Joe HIT IT OUT OF THE PARK!

You can only expect to be outside of 3 Sigma, .3% of the time.

That means 3 times in ever 1,000 elections or roughly once ever 1,333 years!

3) Republicans won all 27 “contested” House seats but lost the presidency?

At Least 12 US House Seats Flipped to Republican in 2020 GOP Landslide

The last election where that happened with even 10 seats was the heavily fraud riddled election of 1960.

4) The winner has always carried 15 or more of the 17 Bellwether counties but Biden won just 1 of them.

MORE PROOF OF FRAUD: 16 of 17 Bellwether Counties Went for Trump — HAS NEVER HAPPENED in 36 Years!

5) Trump had the highest % of non-white votes of any Republican in history.

6) Biden was down more than 10% in NY but up huge in very specific large cities –but only in the cities in battleground states.

7) 450,000+ ballots in battleground cities had a vote for only Biden. No down ballot votes cast, no independents, green party or write in candidates voted for on those ballots.

“We’ve Identified 450,000 Ballots that Miraculously ONLY have a Vote for Joe Biden” – Sidney Powell Drops a BOMB on Sunday Morning Futures (Video)

The Democrat elites want you to believe this election was free and fair.

Fragile and Unsustainable Lies

Many times throughout history, policymakers have doubled down on their own mistakes, refusing to believe that they were wrong or hoping that somehow doing the wrong thing twice or thrice would somehow make things right. Then it all came crashing down at once and the rulers lost their minds, and sometimes their necks or heads.

Economic, governance, and social systems often rely on each other in ways not readily discerned by narrow technocrats. When one crumbles, the others fall in rapid succession while all the putative experts express surprise. Look at the way that the U.S.S.R, one of the world’s two “super” powers, fell apart in the late 1980s when it lost enough feathers from its peacock tail in Afghanistan that its lies about the superiority of its command economy became obvious even to its own systematically deluded subjects.

When NPR proved inadequate to prevent Americans from seeing the few feathers left in America’s peacock tail, as evidenced by the surprise victory of Trump and his MAGA messaging in 2016, mass media joined forces with various “progressive” elements to create a propaganda machine that puts the old clunky Soviet state media to shame. 

Precisely because it is ostensibly private and domestic, America’s mass media, tarnished as its reputation is becoming, retains more credibility than any state-run media ever possessed. Many pundits have noted how 2020 resembles 1984, except the propaganda so far has come from a political resistance movement backed by parts of the government (FBI, CDC) rather than “the” state per se

The phalanx of private media and sundry have convinced tens of millions of Americans that: 

  • we are better off imposing lockdowns that cause far more harm than the virus itself (and sundry cognates, like the virus is super serious and novel, spreads easily via asymptomatic people, yet is stopped by irrational policies like curfews, as if people won’t simply start drinking earlier!); 
  • the current president is somehow illegitimate (Russian election interference, Ukrainian quid pro quo); 
  • nation-altering Constitutional reforms are necessary (de facto elimination of the electoral college, creation of additional states, SCOTUS enlargement); 
  • calling all people of Euroamerican descent racist isn’t itself racist;
  • a virus can differentiate between good protests (pro-BLM and pro-Biden) and bad ones (anti-lockdown and pro-Trump);
  • the American people chose a candidate who essentially did not campaign or set forth a coherent policy platform over one who, for all his faults, was president when the economy finally palpably improved and made enough progress in the Middle East to be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Most impressive of all has been the way the mass media censored or downplayed Biden’s many weaknesses, his deplorable record on race, his almost half-century of self-serving political machinations, and his family’s dealings with Ukraine and China.

Thankfully, the Truth always prevails, it is just a matter of when and how. When the real world is heavily involved, Lies quickly die. So many a hubristic tyrant from ancient times to Hitler has fallen in war; many a fiat currency, including confederal Continentals and Confederate graybacks, has evaporated when their nominal value in circulation rapidly outstripped the real value of goods brought to market. 

The most robust, sustainable Lies cannot even be properly called such because they make no real world predictions at all but instead appeal to emotion and faith, to Revealed Truth. Some have lasted for millennia and though less popular than previously in many places they will surely outlast 2020’s Lies, even though some of those have appealed to faith, oddly in the name of “science,” as in phrases like “follow the science” reminiscent of Sunday sermons beseeching congregants to “follow Scripture.”

But religion appeals to people’s inner worlds so it can get by on dodgy slogans like “God works in mysterious ways.” The Lies of 2020, by contrast, make real world predictions and no amount of media censorship, irrational analysis, or outright obfuscation can permanently hide the fact that lockdowns impose large net burdens, Trump is no more incompetent or flawed than previous presidents, Constitutional checks and balances need to be strengthened and not dismantled, and Americans/America are no more racist than any other people/country.

Just as a fiat currency can quickly lose value through the self-interested actions of market participants, so too can lockdowns dissolve. In fact, in both cases governmental attempts to bolster its Lie (that its monetary policies or lockdowns work) will serve to speed the inevitable. If policymakers do not take the “Thanksgiving Rebellion” as a serious warning, they are dumber or more hubristic than even the most pessimistic have claimed. 

In fact, Americans should use social media, a tool like all tools that can be used for good as well as evil, to pick a time to sing some vintage Twisted Sister in unison to underscore the point: “Oh, we’re not gonna take it anymore! … This is our life … oh You’re so condescending/Your gall is never ending … If that’s your best, your best won’t do. … We’re right … We’re free … We’ll Fight … You’ll see.”

I practice what I preach and drove 12 hours from Georgia to New Jersey to spend time with my family this Thanksgiving, which as usual is gathering near one of the branches of the Atilis Gym, the owners of which gained fame earlier this year by proving the state’s restrictions on places of exercise was not just wrong but wrongheaded. To this day, not a single case of coronavirus has been linked to the establishment and, in fact, its regular patrons stand (and run, bike, squat, and row) as bulwarks against the spread of the coronavirus.

What kind of public health system bemoans the fact that 40 percent of the population is so unhealthy that they are at higher risk of developing complications from the coronavirus and then shutters workout facilities (and even at points boardwalks, parks, etc.)? A coercive state that truly cared about its people would have forced them to exercise instead of shuttering gyms, walking paths, and bike trails!

The longer policymakers allow the pandemic to play out through forced restrictions on natural interaction, the more Americans who will conclude that the public health system and Big Medicine have formed a “complex” akin to the military-industrial and scientific-technical-research complexes that Dwight D. Eisenhower warned Americans about when he left office in 1961, in the wake of another election apparently won with the aid of dead Democrats

This third complex is not interested in Americans’ health but rather their debility. Its goal is to make people dependent on pills and fancy vaccines (the kind now being tested, not the much easier and cheaper live vaccines that might have provided safe, voluntary herd immunity in a month or two, without lockdowns) and to charge through the nose for them, indirectly through taxes or insurance premia. Indirect billing renders the exorbitant costs easier to hide, but like all Lies with real world implications its effects are fragile and unsustainable as even indirect healthcare expenses become unbearable. That led to dropout (most uninsured Americans rationally opted out of insurance that was too costly relative to the expected benefit) and calls for “reforms,” all of which attempt to force everyone to pay tribute to the healthcare complex.

The big risk that I see is that some Americans are coming to understand 2020’s Lies much more quickly and clearly than others. There is a chance, therefore, that instead of The People rising up against feckless government tyrants a la Twisted Sister, tensions between the Still Masked and the Unmaskers, which started in March and intensified over the summer, may boil over into violence. That would be lamentable and counterproductive and could cause the deaths of more Americans in a single day than have perished thus far during the entire pandemic. Violence is a contagion to which nobody can become immune.

“Let Us Fight This Evil Now and Know God’s Truths Will Expose Them All” – Jon Voight Calls for Trump Supporters to Stand Strong as Evil Is Exposed and Defeated (Video)

Hollywood actor Jon Voight posted a courageous video on Twitter filled with attacks on the historic Democrat fraud in this year’s election.

Voight hit the Democrats hard in this powerful video:

Jon Voight: “Let us bring justice to the Supreme Court. Let them see how corrupt the left is with their fraudulent votes. Let the truth show itself that President Trump is the only man who can save this nation. Let us fight this evil now and know that God’s truths will expose them all… We are a nation that fought the Civil War and did not give up. God bless.”

What a hero.
Of course, the demons in Hollywood are spitting venom over this honest and beautiful testimony.

Did Democrats Recommend Pre-Printed Ballots and Provisional Envelopes for Up to 40% of Registered Voters to Be On Hand So They Could Steal Election for Biden on Election Night?

One question from the 2020 election is how did states like Georgia, which were behind by a hundred thousand votes on election night, find enough votes after the polls closed to steal the election for Biden.  We have uncovered at least one element in how this was possible. 

We’ve reported for the last few weeks how states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia and Virginia flipped the election for Biden after they stopped counting, added hundreds of thousands of votes for Biden, and then kept all votes after that period in time at the same ratio of Biden to Trump with Biden always leading at the same percent.

WE CAUGHT THEM! Part 7: Wisconsin, Like MI, GA, PA and VA, Caught Doing the ‘Drop and Roll’ Too — Once Biden Gained Lead with MASSIVE Vote Dumps, The Rest of Votes All Possessed Same Biden to Trump Vote Ratio – THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE!

This ‘drop and roll’ scenario was depicted in a video at TGP:

One question is  – how were they able to do this?  Physically, where did they find the votes?

Well, we have found the answer to this in at lease one state that we believe may have carried over to the other states stolen for Biden.

The Brennan Center for Justice recommended in late September that states should carry an incredible number of ballots on election day:

To be sufficient, there should be enough emergency and provisional materials to keep voter lines moving for up to three hours while any technical issues can be identified and resolved. In 2020, this will likely require precincts to have enough backup materials for 40 percent of all Election Day voters.

By late October they were recommending more of the same in states like Georgia:

Georgia regulations already require keeping emergency paper ballots on hand as well as configuring polling place scanners to accept both machine-printed ballots and emergency ballots. The regulations mention a bare minimum amount equal to 10 percent of all registered voters. However, this is simply insufficient to cover three hours of voting on Election Day. The lines we saw this week during early voting in Georgia confirm what was already known: November’s elections are likely to see historic turnout.

Backup ballots are necessary, not only in response to machine failures, but also for provisional voting — when voters find themselves in the wrong polling place, or when they’ve requested an absentee ballot but wish to vote in person and a poll manager isn’t available to help. To cover all these scenarios, Georgia election officials should supply Election Day polling places with enough pre-printed ballots — and provisional ballot envelopes — for 40 percent of registered voters. And they should provide at least some backup supplies at early voting sites too.

Come election day the Democrats were getting crushed by President Trump’s historic turnout and massive vote totals.  They had to do something.  So they stopped all counting and brought in hundreds of thousands of ballots for Joe Biden.

We now know where they found enough ballots sitting around that they could use to manufacture these votes for Biden. 

Democrats ensured they would be there before the election.

#StopTheSteal: Patriots Needed in Arizona for Public Hearing With President Trump’s Legal Team — Rudy and Jenna Ellis in AZ Monday

#StopTheSteal organizers and activists are calling for all patriots to head to Arizona for a series of rallies over the weekend and a public hearing with President Donald Trump’s campaign lawyers on Monday.

Arizona legislators and lawyers for President Trump will be holding a meeting at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix on Monday at 9 a.m.

Rep. Paul Gosar, Kelli Ward, #StopTheSteal leaders, and Trump lawyers Jenna Ellis and Rudy Giuliani are expected to attend.

The Arizona Secretary of State is expected to certify the results for Joe Biden on Monday, despite major anomalies and allegations of fraud throughout the state, but particularly in Maricopa County.

“After a review of the statistical anomalies, and there are to numbers to count [sic], affidavits of improper actions and community outrage that has grown out of what appears to voters to be an attempt to throw the election through a number of fraudulent efforts, we decided as Members of the Legislature, and not as members of any specific committee, that we should move forward with a public hearing,” Republican Rep. Mark Finchem wrote in a press release about the meeting.

Activists, influencers, and Republican strategists are calling for Trump supporters to gather during the meeting, as well as both Saturday and Sunday at noon at the Arizona State Capitol.

We are hunting RINOs in Arizona on Monday. Please join my friends: @ali @MichaelCoudrey @JennaEllisEsq @kelliwardaz @DrPaulGosar @charliekirk11

Support the President! https://t.co/nfi0bgY016 pic.twitter.com/A22wYZGYy6

— CJ Pearson (@thecjpearson) November 28, 2020

Stop the Steal organizer Ali Alexander told Gateway Pundit that “we are looking for GOP leaders to show up.

“We cannot wait for the slow State Senate. If Republicans want to avoid a primary, they’ll show up to meet their voters Monday morning and stand with President Trump. If not, we’ll know who is slow walking the election integrity issue. In a republic, they work for us,” Alexander added.

I’m only support peaceful protests. Keep Arizona peaceful. Optics check. But we are about to get rowdy. We have 1000+ comes in. Be ready to WORK all day Monday. #StopTheSteaI

— Ali 🟧 #StopTheSteal (@ali) November 28, 2020

Republican entrepreneur, influencer, and activist Michael Coudrey, who will also be in attendance, told the Gateway Pundit that “#StopTheSteal campaign has one primary objective. To ensure honest, transparent and legitimate elections.”

“We will organize in Arizona to raise public awareness about elections fraud, lack of transparency and significant issues with mail-in ballots,” Coudrey added. “Additionally, we intend to hold AZ State lawmakers accountable and ensure they are pursuing the overwhelming evidence of elections irregularities.”

BALD-FACED LIES: Dominion Says Assertions of Vote Switching Are “Completely False” — But We Have Two Videos of Dominion Executive Eric Coomer Showing How to Switch Votes

Dominion Voting Systems is in a panic as more and more Americans learn of their role in stealing the 2020 election from President Donald Trump.

The Dominion webpage now includes a full page rebuttal to defend the company’s name.

One statement that stands out is their bogus claim that “deletion/switching assertions are completely false.”

Of course, this is a bald-faced lie.
There is video of 19,958 votes switched on election night from President Trump to Joe Biden in Pennsylvania.

On live TV exactly 19,958 votes taken from Trump and switched to Biden in Pennsylvania. Watch the PA totals change pic.twitter.com/TnBs7ZjUyW

— robert mandry (@MandryRobert) November 10, 2020

And we previously reported on two different videos of Dominion’s anti-Trump executive Eric Coomer showing election officials how to switch votes.

Dr. Eric Coomer who is responsible for the strategy and Security at Dominion Voting Systems.

In 2016 Coomer told the Illinois States Board of Elections that it was possible to bypass election systems software.

Here is more from the 2016 article at the Post and Email:

Dr. Coomer’s statement brings to light a very serious issue all voters should understand. Voting systems must be re-certified each time they make changes to the hardware or software. Recertification is an expensive and time consuming process. What Dr. Coomer told the Board is that Dominion Voting does not go back for recertification of software when threats to their code are discovered. Rather, they rely on post-election audits and providing advice to election jurisdictions about security. I have reviewed all of the recertification documents produced by Dominion, and I do not recall any software adjustments for security purposes.

This is the reality of the security of your vote. Software systems that count and record the vote across Illinois and throughout the USA are not updated to address security problems, and even if they were, the software can be completely bypassed by going to the data tables that drive the systems.

Here is the video…

And then there’s this…

And in 2017 Eric Coomer explained how to alter votes in the Dominion Voting Systems in a Chicago demonstration.
A video turned up from 2017 where Dr. Eric Coomer from Dominion Voting explained to Chicago elections officials how to alter votes in the Dominion voting machines.

This then is the SECOND VIDEO of top Dominion executive explaining to elections officials how to alter votes with the Dominion machines!

This was a separate demonstration in the Chicago area (notice he is wearing a dark jacket and is without the wrist protector.)

🤡2017 DR. ERIC COOMER EXPLAINS HOW TO ALTER VOTES IN THE DOMINION VOTING SYSTEM
🙄THIS SEEMS ABSOLUTELY RIPE FOR FRAUD

“The Democrats Are Lying. I Don’t Know About the Judges” – Rudy Giuliani Discusses Today’s Response from Third Circuit Court of Appeals (Video)

Rudy Giuliani spoke with OAN this evening after receiving word from the Pennsylvania Circuit Court that the President’s case has been denied. 

The Third Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday granted an expedited review for Team Trump’s appeal in Pennsylvania after an Obama judge dismissed their lawsuit seeking to block the state from certifying its election results.

Trump’s campaign on Friday lost its appeal in the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.

A three-panel judge (all appointed by Republican presidents) said that the Trump campaign’s “claims have no merit.”

The Trump campaign’s senior legal advisor Jenna Ellis released a statement in response to the Third Circuit’s opinion.

“The activist judicial machinery in Pennsylvania continues to cover up the allegations of massive fraud,” Ellis said.

“On to SCOTUS!”  she said referring to the US Supreme Court.

.@RudyGiuliani and me on Third Circuit’s opinion:

The activist judicial machinery in Pennsylvania continues to cover up the allegations of massive fraud.

We are very thankful to have had the opportunity to present proof and the facts to the PA state legislature.

On to SCOTUS!

— Jenna Ellis (@JennaEllisEsq) November 27, 2020

President Trump was ahead of Joe Biden in Pennsylvania on election night by 700,000 votes.

Crooked and corrupt elections officials in Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh stopped counting votes on election night after the polls closed because Biden was getting absolutely crushed by President Trump.

Suddenly massive ballot dumps only for Joe Biden appeared and huge spikes of Biden votes were seen added to the election results.

Then Republicans were not permitted to observe the review and count of the hundreds of thousands of ballots that came in after the election was over.

Tonight Rudy was OAN and he shared the following:

The Democrats are lying.  I don’t know about the judges, why they shy away from the fact that the allegations are quite specific.  The complaint is 30 pages long.  I invite you to read it.  It has the names of the people making the allegations.  It tells you what they saw.  It tells you that they were seeing ballots that were being forged.  They saw ballots that were being counted four or five times.   These are about as specific as allegations can get.  So I don’t know if it’s and excuse to stay away from a hard case or who knows.  The reality is they’re not going to get away with it because if we can’t do it in court, we’ll do it in the state legislature.  We’re having a great deal of progress there…

… It’s a tragedy what’s going on in the American media.  These facts should be known to the American people.

All we need is some honest judges.

BLAST FROM THE PAST: Smartmatic CEO Introduces Creepy Bill Gates at Global Citizen Conference in June 2015

A photo resurfaced on Friday night of Smartmatic CEO introducing creepy Bill Gates at the Global Citizen Conference in June 2015.

The Global Citizen is a globalist social justice organization aimed at ridding global poverty through socialism.

In 2015 Smartmatic CEO Antonio Mugica introduced Bill Gates at the Global Citizen conference.

Antonio Mugica is a former Chavez lackey and is the founder and CEO of Smartmatic voting systems.

In 2017 Antonio Mugica admitted their system was able to create “at least one million” phantom votes in that year’s Venezuelan election.

Mark Levin Audio Rewind – 11/27/20

On Friday’s Mark Levin Show, WABC radio host Rich Valdes “Mr. Call Screener” fills in for Mark. Regressive progressives are trying to raize the republic. They are trying to get the election over with as fast as possible, which is why there is such a push by the media to ignore evidence of voter fraud. Mail-in ballot fraud was used to affect the 1864 election to try and remove President Abraham Lincoln, just like what the Democrats are trying to pull off in the 2020 election. Even worse was the 1876 election of Rutherford B. Hayes, which saw Democrats go so far as to kill political opponents in order to steal the election. The “hate America” first crowd cannot be allowed to take over, or else we are screwed. The media is on an all-out assault on our republic, trying to destroy the aspects of democracy that we love and pervert them for their purposes. Also, we have turned a blind eye to what Barack Obama has done. The divider and demagogue in chief pitted Americans against each other, and is now openly hating evangelicals and Latino Trump supporters. He spent 8 years creating racial division, which paved the way for BLM.

As more and more Americans are made aware of the historic fraud several states could flip to Trump despite the fraudulent numbers produced by Dominion Voting Systems and massive voter fraud.

Via Kyle Becker:

Straightforward from here:
▶GOP controls state legislatures in key swing states
▶Legislatures convinced of fraud; send own/no electors
▶Biden deprived of 270
▶State delegations in House re-elect Trump 26-23

Carter Page Sues Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, DOJ and Others Behind FISA Abuse for $75 Million


Carter Page

Former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page sued James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, the DOJ and others for a minimum of $75 million.

Crooked officials from Obama’s FBI/DOJ obtained a FISA warrant and three renewals on Carter Page yet they never charged him with a crime.

The FBI accused Carter Page of being a traitor who was working on behalf of the Russian government in order to spy on him and the warrants were ultimately used to spy on Trump’s campaign and beyond.

We now know that Hillary Clinton was behind the Trump-Russia hoax as part of her plot to distract from her damning emails.

Carter Page is suing the “Who’s Who” of the Spygate cabal including fired FBI Director James Comey, fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, fired FBI Counterintel chief Peter Strzok, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, disgraced FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, FBI special agent Joe Pientka and others.

The discovery should be a lot of fun.

ICYMI, @carterwpage is suing:

Comey
McCabe
Clinesmith
Strzok
Page
Pientka
Somma
Auten
DOJ

for a minimum of $75,000,000.00.

Carter Page’s lawyer argued the FBI never had probably cause to spy on Page.

Carter Page’s counsel asserted the FBI knew that Page used to do work for the CIA and they also knew that Hillary Clinton cooked up the entire Russia hoax.

@McAdooGordon does a great job here boxing in the defendants by establishing that, from the outset, the FBI *knew* that Carter Page was an operational contact for the CIA and also *knew* that Hillary was suspected of having concocted the entire Russia hoax to frame Trump. pic.twitter.com/5iKsAOKde7

DEVELOPING: Attorney Sidney Powell: We’ve Got Pictures of Check Stubs Paid to People to Ballot Harvest (Audio)

It’s Happening — The Trump Campaign’s legal team is going to prove massive fraud in this year’s election.

Attorney Sidney Powell went on with Howie Carr recently and told the legendary radio host, “We’ve got pictures of the check stubs paid to people to ballot harvest.”

Of course ballot harvesting is an illegal practice where Democrats and Marxists manufacture ballots in bulk to steal elections.
Ballot harvesting is illegal in all states except for California — because it’s California.

It’s Happening: Pennsylvania State Legislature Files Resolution — DISPUTES STATEWIDE 2020 ELECTION RESULTS

It is clear the Pennsylvania 2020 election was wrought with fraud and criminal conduct.
President Trump led by nearly 700,000 votes on election night.
Democrats dumped hundreds of thousands of votes to steal the state from the Trump Campaign.

On Wednesday the Pennsylvania state legislature held a hearing on the 2020 election issues and irregularities.

One witness described the huge “spikes” in Pennsylvania during the hearing and the crowd gasped.

.@RudyGiuliani: Of the 600K votes added during curious “spikes” in PA, how many went to Biden?

Witness: “I think our figures were about 570-some-odd-thousand.”

“And how much for Trump?

Witness: “I think it was a little over 3,200.”

WHEREAS, on September 17, 2020, less than seven weeks before the November 3, 2020 election, the partisan majority on the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania unlawfully and unilaterally extended the deadline for mail-in ballots to be received, mandated that ballots mailed without a postmark would be presumed to be received timely, and could be accepted without a verified voter signature; and

WHEREAS, on October 23, 2020, less than two weeks before the November 3, 2020 election and upon a petition from the Secretary of the Commonwealth, the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania ruled that mail-in ballots need not authenticate signatures for mail-in ballots, thereby treating in-person and mail-in voters dissimilarly and eliminating a critical safeguard against potential election crime; and

WHEREAS, on November 2, 2020, the night before the November 3, 2020 election and prior to the prescribed time for pre-canvassing mail-in ballots, the office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth encouraged certain counties to notify party and candidate representatives of mail-in voters whose ballots contained defects; and

WHEREAS, in other parts of the Commonwealth, watchers observed irregularities concerning the pre-canvassing and canvassing of absentee and mail-in ballots; and

WHEREAS, there remains ongoing litigation concerning the administration of the November 3, 2020 election in the Commonwealth; and

WHEREAS, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives has the duty to ensure that no citizen of this Commonwealth is disenfranchised, to insist that all elections are conducted according to the law, and to satisfy the general public that every legal vote is counted accurately;
