A car boot full of ballots — bought for $800 a vote (or for nothing at all)

Things the ABC might not tell you:

Project Veritas has an insider, they have footage of a man bragging that he has a car full of empty ballots. They have an insider explaining how the system works for mass ballot harvesting.

VictoryGirlsBlog:   This is just as terrible as you think it will be. Project Veritas has thrown quite a hand grenade straight into the Minneapolis area, bringing the receipts to prove ballot harvesting.

It seems that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, along with other connected politicians in the Somali community, have quite an expansive ballot harvesting operation going on – so much so, that one of their operatives actually bragged about it on Snapchat. And not only are they going around collecting ballots, especially from the elderly, but they are paying for the ballots in cash.

Between video evidence and insider interviews, the picture being revealed is a system of ballot harvesting and payoffs so corrupt and entrenched that it might not be salvageable.

“Numbers don’t lie. Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentees’ ballots. Can’t you see? Look at all these, my car is full. All these are for Jamal Osman… We got 300 today for Jamal Osman only,” said Liban Mohamed in a series of Snapchat videos posted July 1 and July 2 on his own Snapchat profile.”

Mohamed said he was collecting the ballots to help his brother win the city’s Aug. 11 special election for a vacant Ward 6 city council race—which was held the same day as the primary for Omar’s MN-05 congressional seat. Ward 6 is the heart of the city’s Somali community and the Omar’s political base.”

“The only way you can win is with money”.

“They have perfected this system”

As soon as voting opens, that’s when ballot harvesting occurs.

Great Civilizations don’t run elections like this

Welcome to Minnesota?

The immigrants mostly are first generation. They are still emotionally connected to where they came from. They  don’t know how elections work, … they came from a military government,… Sometimes they think it’s legal.

Ihan Omar is exploiting members of her own Somali Community.

It’ s an alliance between the clan and the progressive left.

Ihar Oman appears to have hundreds of people involved.

But remember there is absolutely no evidence of mail-in voter fraud. Rinse, and repeat after me. ;-)

    Doesn’t the testimony from Project Veritas count as evidence? If they are not using ‘mail in voting’ how else could they do it?

    Keep it up Jo, but we will never see this on the MSM. They have lost their moral compass and wave away such evil as nothing worth worrying about.

    You and many many others warned of it, and we had past operatives describing buying votes at homeless shelters, throwing away ballots of those they did not like (these have started to appear and unsurprisingly they are all Trump ballots…)

    All I can say is that all of this will mean that the US election result stands a very good chance of being thrown out.

    There should never ever be a case of just handing out ballots. If you request one then maybe but do not, in a country where 40% never vote, just send them out. Otherwise exactly what we have here happens…

      People keep complaining about an “extreme polarization” of the nation. I’ll call it a tribalism, a welcome import in our multiculturalist times.

      • #

        Among those on the left, there’s systemic hate of people who are not like them while those on the right disapprove of the regressive and repressive policies pushed by those on the left.

        The left can’t support their destructive policies on merit which is why they use hate against the opposition because it’s the only tool they have left and to be sure, manipulating emotions is a powerful tool. This hate driven philosophy is far worse than tribalism, racism or any other ism you can think of. This unfounded hate is what’s behind the polarization which is amplified by clueless MSM piling on to the hateful rhetoric.

      Alea iacta est (“The die has been cast”) is a variation of a Latin phrase (iacta alea est [ˈjakta ˈaːlɛ.a ˈɛst]) attributed by Suetonius to Julius Caesar on January 10, 49 BCE, as he led his army across the Rubicon river in Northern Italy. With this step, he entered Italy at the head of his army in defiance of the Senate.

      In what way has the Rubicon been passed?

    Don’t forget Mr George Soros prior to the last US federal election, funding via his Open Society Foundation to corrupt
    Federal Elections. Those leaked Soros funding documents show that Soros poured hundreds of millions of dollars into often secret efforts to change election laws, to fuel litigation to attack election integrity measures, such as citizenship verification and voter ID, to push public narratives about voter fraud as a myth, and to manipulate media coverage of election issues in mainstream media outlets like The New York Times.

    The funding documents name radical groups that received more than $500,000 each year, including the Centre for Community Change, the Advancement Project Centre and the Brennan Centre for Justice. Two of these organisations, the Advancement Project and Brennan Centre regularly oppose election integrity measures in court and influence media by
    pushing voter fraud denial narratives. Soros’ money also targets voter mobilisation of minority groups that can be counted on to vote for the Democrats, the political party Soros supports.

    I might be wrong but, I think many Australians confuse the U.S. mail voting system with our postal voting system. America’s ‘mail in’ votes currently are more open to fraud than ours. And our system is by no means fool proof for a start.

      the U.S. mail voting system

      There is not one (1) system.
      Washington State started (40 years ago?) limited mail balloting and slowly expanded.
      About 11 years ago the system we now have went State-wide. There are regular interactions at State, local, and postal operations to keep the rolls up-to-date. For example, if a persons mail is being forward the Postal Service is supposed to return the ballot and notify the State of the new address; investigation follows.

      A few other states have similar systems in place.

      Current issue is about states with no experience and no decent mechanism having been established.
      “The Donald’s” harping on mail voting is meant to get the media to discuss this issue.
      We in Washington State just shake our heads.
      Many in our State have never voted in a polling both. What’s that?

      The other thing is our compulsory voting system. Generally you would need to harvest a greater percentage of votes, to sway an election in Australia. (Tho we do have seats that hang on a few hundred votes)

    I’m still at a loss as to why the USA, an important nation on the planet, allows mail in voting when, by their method, is obviously an open door for counterfeit voting.(the words I would prefer to use causes the automoderator to react)
    The majority of Westernized countries only allow postal votes under very special and verified reasons, if they allow it at all.
    I see that many developing, and poorer nations, only allow individuals to vote after showing valid personal ID.
    I also note that Putin’s Russia does not allow postal voting but that may well be for other reasons (might be linked to the voter undergoing psychiatric or physical harm that may eventuate in soon after voting).

      The problem is the Democratic Party is corrupt and is using CAGW as an excuse to change laws and use deep state power to stay in power. The Democrats believe cheating and lying to win is OK. So is spending money which we do not have on stuff that does not work.

      The Democratic Party has become anti-US following the left wing and a movement that appears to be organized from outside the US.

      Biden had three strange blank out moments during the debate. I saw one. All are visible in slow motion. Biden looks as if he is restarted, stimulated.

      The issues are vote harvesting where a voter is coerced, votes from areas that traditionally vote for one party go missing, people from D.C. for example registering to vote in swing states, ballots sent to dead people or wrong addresses letting others vote twice etc.

      None a huge issue except if coordinated to occur where elections are tight. The complaining about the popular vote going to Hilary last year suggests many are happy to do the wrong thing.

      “…but with Trumpet’s call to arms for the Proud Boys to ‘stand by’”

      Actually, he clarified what he meant today:

      “I don’t know who the Proud Boys are. I mean, you’ll have to give me a definition because I really don’t know who they are,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “I can only say they have to stand down and let law enforcement do their work.”

      Also:

      Trump, asked by moderator Chris Wallace at the debate Tuesday if he was willing to condemn White supremacy, said, “Sure, I’m willing to do that. But I would say almost everything I see is from the left-wing, not the right-wing. I am willing to do anything. I want to see peace.”

      Stephen says ”ho hum, both sides” do it…. NOT: I lived in Cedar Riverside in Minneapolis (above) during my student years. I’ve spend years and decades watching this issue of graft and illegal vote buying evolve.

      The data on illegal voting resulting in convictions showed a party sque of only 90% Democrats over less than 10% Republican.

      Since billionaire George Soros has gotten deeper and deeper into corrupting the voting process over 20 years, it’s gotten much worse. First he naught then vote counters (Secretaries of State). Now he buys the prosecutors who enforce the laws to protect those buying votes from prosecution.

      Thus, now the ”voting” ”recount” continues until the Left and Far Left wins.

      So much for your ridiculous “every body does it” so “why does it mater?” theory.

      Civil War blood shed is needed to resolve the evil marching throughout the US, or Liberty is dead. The Red Left tyranny must be violently killed!

    The Democrats and the MSM have been trying to make acceptance of the result an election issue, by hounding Trump with the question will he accept the election result and allow the transition of power. Having primed the public with predicted scenarios of Trump leading on the night but Biden winning the election after the postal votes come in the Democrats are creating the false scenario that there will be a huge postal vote from Democrats which will swamp the Trump voters who voted in person.
    Logic tells me with the left being so violent towards Trump supporters it could in fact be Trump supporters who vote by mail.
    Anyway having created this expectation of no result on the night and a huge pro Biden influx of mail in votes the Democrats are trying to provide cover for the obvious conclusion that they intend to use systematic cheating to try to steal the election and If necessary use the legal process to enforce this falsely created result.
    The creation of this cheat by mail system has overwhelmingly been set up in Democrat controlled states but hopefully Trumps silent majority will still overcome this. With Hilary Clinton and others emphasising that Joe Biden will not be conceding it’s clear that they will use every method legal and illegal to achieve their aim.
    With most of the Trump Base locked in and a big swing to Trump likely from Blacks and Hispanics this should be a comfortable victory for Trump.
    Whatever the result on the night and whatever happens after it is certain that the legal challenges will continue for months and the Republicans control of the Supreme Court may be crucial because it will be necessary for the Justice system to see the obvious cheating to ensure that the right rulings are made.
    Together with the prospects of continued riots and protests by the left things could look be pretty ugly in the States for a while.
    Whilst the press continue to question whether Trump will accept the result , if Trump wins there is no doubt the Democrats won’t . Their petulant behaviour since the 2016 go up a notch if they don’t get Biden into the White House.

    Mail in voting is just the tip of the iceberg in many ways. Do a bit of research on the voting machines if your eyes to pop.
    Also have they got rid of the 2 million dead people that were still on the rolls at the last election or has the figure grown?

    When discussing this with others I always say that “western countries”, including the USA, have sent observers to the elections in African countries, for decades. The voting system in the USA is so bad, in my view, that you could just about reverse that practice now and have observers from African countries overseeing the US elections.

    In Australia there was a saying that I have not heard mentioned for some years, “vote early, vote often”.

    Meaning electoral rolls are marked off when a person votes at a polling booth, but the same rolls and listings are at every polling booth in each electorate, and we are not asked for identification. The same illegal activity can take place when deceased people have not been removed from electoral rolls which is why most solicitors will remind the executor to notify the Electoral Commission that a person has passed.

    Many years ago the late Andrew Ollie, ABC Radio presenter and all round nice person, invited listeners to phone in and talk about their knowledge of electoral fr*ud. Many phoned him and had many examples. One lady explained that she was on duty marking people off the roll to issue voting papers and recognised a man who had voted earlier in the day and who identified himself with a different name. When confronted he walked out.

    I know what he did, he was a migrant and registered in two names, I was told by some Asian employees that they voted this way and even had multiple drivers licences, back in the 1980s. This reflects, I believe, what was called “ethnic branch stacking” by media referring to Labor Branches recruiting ethnic group leaders and their group people.

    In NSW there was a Labor State MP, John Newman MLA and a local Councillor and ethnic group leader migrant wanted his parliamentary seat. but Newman was not prepared to resign. As a result he was murdered, shot dead on his home driveway. Police arrested the people responsible and after trials Phong Ngo was convicted or arranging the murder and handed a prison sentence. So deep was the system that he managed to arrange Chinese New Year parties inside Long Bay Gaol a couple of years running before the media exposed what was happening, over 100 outsiders entering Long Bay for the parties with catering by a well known Chinese Restaurant. The NSW Labor Minister for Corrective Services denied having any knowledge of the events taking place.

    Until voters are identified and only get one vote each our electoral system will remain questionable.

      The Newman business is a reminder of how ugly politics can get.

      A disgusting mix of empire building, unchecked law breaking and community degradation all ignored by those in State Office.

      The “good” names like Newman and Kaldas deserve our thanks.
      The “bad”, like Phuong Ngo, deserve what they got.
      The “ugly” are those pulling the strings and mostly out of sight.

      The big question is why such an obvious drug culture was “ignored” for so long by those in State Office.

    Another vote capture method used in marginal electorates, meaning sitting member with a narrow margin of vote numbers, was unionists offering transport for aged voters and driving them to polling booths and on the way pressuring them to vote Labor. Many were mage to feel under an obligation to support Labor in return for the free transport.

    Polling booths servicing ADF bases tend to favour the Coalition/conservative side of our politics and during one NSW state election the polling booth servicing Holsworthy Army Base in South Western Sydney not far from Liverpool produced a clear win for the Labor candidate. Investigation revealed many votes rejected as invalid because they had not been initialed when they were issued by polling booth staff. I would call that sabotage. If the invalid votes had been approved the booth result would have strongly favoured the Liberal candidate.

    Of course there is little or no point in trying to change the most likely result in any electorate that the sitting member holds with a wide margin.

    Project Veritas is run by a fraud and Republican operative called James O’Keefe. He has been caught out numerous times secretly recording and videotaping people under false pretenses then doctoring/selectively editing the videos. He is funded by the Donors Trust, which is funded by the Koch Brothers and Trump Foundation amongst other Republicans. He and the organisation have no credibility at all. He has been successfully sued and has a federal criminal record. In 2017 O’Keefe arranged for a woman called Jamie Phillips to contact the Washington Post with a lie that Judge Roy Moore impregnated her when she was 15 hoping that the Post would fall for it. The Post didn’t. Says all you need to know about O’Keefe and Project Veritas. No doubt this alleged ballot harvesting crap will be exposed too.
