No need to investigate, FBI and Dept of Justice know there was no fraud


Lou Dobbs Tonight was scathing on the Attorney General William Barr and the Department of Justice

So many resources, yet so little results. How are the FBI or the DOJ serving the American people? Weeks after the most contentious election ever in the United States and there is no sign these major institutions are even checking the incidents being reported of voting irregularities.

Like the climate debate, why is it left mainly to volunteers to research and investigate something so important to the people?

Why aren’t the legacy media investigating and interviewing witnesses?


 Congressman Jim Jordan (Rep): The American people deserve the truth.

I have never seen an election where there were so many Why are we still counting votes a month after the election.
If we sent observers to foreign countries and they were still counting votes four weeks after

Voting machines are being impounded

No other president has ever lost after increasing their vote for relection.

Dobbs: Should the President say “this is a national crisis”, and we just don’t have time to investigate the number of problems with this election.

Jordan: One third of the electorate think this was rigged. When you have over 50 million people, a third of the electorate, think that this election was rigged, we owe it to them to investigate.

In other news, Kamala’s personal cameraman went on to  work at a software tech at Dominion. He was in charge in Floyd County elections in June which mysteriously included unexplained glitches, pauses in counting and unexplained voter dumps. A strange coincidence…

PS: For anyone who read the 780% of voter turnout yesterday from one precinct in Michigan, the huge number was very likely a decimal point error. See the update. Many questions remain about the other precincts showing 100% voter turnout.

Was that a 100% plus voter turn-out in some Michigan precincts?

UPDATE: A Big Thankyou to Pedant General and B. Hicks for the official count for North Muskegon (page 459) shows this was likely a decimal point error and turnout was 78% not 780%. Headline Changed (Original “Was that a 780% turnout in North Muskegon, Michigan?”). Things may still be far out of the ordinary in North Muskagon. Academic Agent claims the turnout in 2012 in this same county was just 25%. In 2016 it was 55%.  Somehow the Precinct was transformed from an apathetic low voter place to a place that turned out in historic numbers. Hypothetically, if people intending to cheat were going to find thousands of votes the counties with the lowest voter turnout would be the best places to start. That said, it’s so much better if Affidavits got the numbers correct. Shame something as important as a free and fair election is not being investigated in this kind of details by institutions with major resources and many staff like the DoJ and the FBI.

What’s the story for all the other 100%-plus Precinct here? — Jo


You’ve heard of impossible voter turnouts in the USA and you were wondering why no one just listed the counties with the counts. Well here they are. Thanks to David E for finding them.

Many precincts of Michigan had a 100% turn out which is impressive in itself, but it was the 200, 400 and 800% turnouts that really take the cake. Ponder the kind of brazen cheating (or perhaps rushed panicked mistakes) that takes.  Even if there was a record high turnout of 80% in Michigan — 15% above normal — that would imply there were 36,812 extra zombie voters.

Below, see how one audit suggests that nearly one in ten absentee voters lives on a vacant lot or in a cemetery.

Dead voters and people who live in vacant lots were keen for Joe Biden to win.

Cyberwarfare: Two 3-Star Generals call it “treason” and explain The Kraken is a Military Intelligence Unit

Both Michael Flynn and Thomas McInerney spoke on WVW with Brannon Howse

They make remarkable claims. These are both three star Lieutenant Generals, effectively endorsing each other and Trump and suggesting CIA involvement, foreign interference, and talking of crack US soldiers seizing servers in Germany that were controlled by the CIA.

The implications are that there are sections of US intelligence on opposite sides of the battle. This might explain why, at one point, Sidney Powell said she wasn’t sure if the good guys or the bad guys had the servers in Germany. (The good guys apparently got the servers in the end, but possibly at the highest price, and we wait to find out what, if anything, was on them).

Not many in the US would know more about intelligence operations than Michael Flynn — the 18th Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) under Obama and the National Security Adviser under Trump.  Thomas G. McInerney is a retired United States Air Force Lieutenant General who flew in 407 combat missions during the Vietnam War. He was also Assistant Vice Chief of Staff of the US Air Force.

“We’ve never seen treason of this magnitude ever in our history” declared McInerney. “Trump must not let deadlines stop him fulfilling his oath to defend the country against all enemies, both foreign and domestic”.

In this strange election twilight zone, there is no easy way to verify much. In a normal world (the one we thought we lived in six weeks ago) we’d expect the media to put this sort of thing on the front page. In a normal world, if the BBC didn’t mention it, perhaps it didn’t happen. But the normal world hasn’t been normal for years.  Gradually more things became Undiscussed — like cold snaps and scientists hiding declines. But, now the censorship fog has arrived like a Brown Dwarf snuck up on the solar system.

Keep your skeptical hat on. It sounds like a Tom Clancy thriller. It would make a great movie. And both sides have an interest in a Big Bluff.

What is the CIA’s role in cyberwarefare

One America News (OANN) has done a good job of summarizing that story.

One Rep.  Louie Gohmert claimed there was a raid on a Scytl server in Germany. Scytl though denies it, and the man that Trump sacked that used to run the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) said it didn’t happen and the Army said “no” too. But then most official agencies probably don’t explain and confirm all the movements of their intelligence forces. Possibly those doing the PR don’t even know them. What was that saying — don’t believe it til it’s officially denied?

It’s not so much a civil war as a cyberwar

“The first time in the United States history that massive amounts of Cyberwarfare have been used in US Elections.”

We’ve mentioned the CIA programs called Hammer and Scorecard before. Hammer was surveillance software developed by Dennis Montgomery for the CIA under the Bush Government to go after radical islamists. We know this because Montgomery has since become a whistleblower. Scorecard was used to influence foreign elections to help elect leaders the US preferred. I did say “There is a karma to this.” If the US was involved in rigging foreign elections, (while supposedly promoting democracy) –  is it any wonder the same tool came back to bite? And fast too, like vote flipping at the speed of light.  Just two weeks after Obama took office (two weeks!), the programs were moved out of the CIA custody and into a group that could use it against the citizens of the United States.

Software that can control nations is like free opium — we can’t leave it lying around and not expect someone to use it.

Kraken is a crack military intelligence team

In another part of the interview McInerney explains that “Kraken” means the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion who have been helping The President. He identifies China, Russia and Iran as being involved in manipulating votes.

In the full interview the claims about the German servers were at 26 minutes. McInerney takes over from Flynn at 32 minutes. The Kraken claim is at about the 42 minute mark. Mary Fanning finishes. She’s been involved for years in investigating this and has written a whole book: “THE HAMMER is the Key to the Coup “The Political Crime of the Century”: How Obama, Brennan, Clapper, and the CIA spied on President Trump, General Flynn … and everyone else”

According to Fanning, McInerney and Flynn, the US Special Forces seized servers in Frankfurt Germany that were allegedly controlled by the CIA. If so, this would be Military Government forces against Civilian Government forces. A dire situation especially given that McInerney mentions that he has also heard there may have been fatalities during the seizure. He stresses that this is unverified.

There is a full transcript at NaturalNews (albeit in need of some spellchecking)

McInerney:.This is the most dangerous situation since the civil war of keeping this nation United, and why do I say that? The civil war, it was just warfare, today you and General Flynn talked about cyber warfare…

McInerney: My background is a military analyst, and for 16 and a half years I was on Fox News as a military analyst. I have been the number three man in the air staff in the air force, and so I had a great background, but what made this so easy for me Brannon is I run a cloud company, an edge cloud company. I am intimately familiar with this kind of technology and what it’s doing and live by it in my military days. Everybody remembers when we attacked Tripoli in 1986. I was the commander and they launched from my bases in England.

Now, I got that information from the British and other sources, but my whole life has been based on this, and what I’m seeing now is those technologies now are used against the American people. They are trying to seize control of this nation through technology and through cyber warfare. They have enlisted to include Fox News who flipped on us. They have been listed the mainstream media and the first amendment to try to get on their side and General Flynn talked about the censorship. For instance,  Twitter determines what president Trump can say. That is ridiculous. It must stop,…

Trump has been up against some parts of the CIA or FBI for years (compare the four year Russia Russia zeal that came to nothing with one year of inaction on Hunter Bidens laptop).

The Deepest Deep State of them all is a swamp that needs draining.

No doubt the media-Swamp will have plenty of slurs at hand to dismiss the key characters.

Huge? Pennsylvania State House and Senate resolution to overturn certified result

Jenna Ellis shares to Newsmax TV a huge development for the Trump team – regarding the PA state legislature’s rights against “corrupt election officials.”

A band of 26 Pennsylvania House lawmakers are circulating a memo seeking support of a proposed resolution declaring the state’s certification of presidential electors and other statewide election results to be “in dispute”.

Declaring the results of statewide electoral contests in the 2020 general election to be in dispute, a group of House Republican lawmakers have announced their intention to introduce a resolution calling for Gov. Tom Wolf and Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar to withdraw their certification of the Nov. 3 election results in the presidential and other statewide contests.

In Pennsylvania, the Republicans control the House and Senate. Rudy Guiliani and the Trump team presented a compelling case with witnesses and evidence of voter fraud at the Senate Hearing on Wednesday. So much so that many Republicans are galvanized.

However they may not get time to vote on this:

CBS Pittsburgh: The resolution has not yet been voted on by either the state House or Senate. It is not expected to get a vote before lawmakers’ terms end on Monday.

Lt. Gov. John Fetterman told KDKA last week that if the votes are not certified in Pennsylvania by Monday, Nov. 30, there will be no members of the state House and half the state Senate will not be in office as that is when their terms expire.


Jenna Ellis says that Governor (a Democrat) does not have the power to stop this. The sole power resides with the House and Senate. It is a constitutionally designated role. In theory (according to her) they are able to override this corruption.

Apart from the incredibly tight timing, there is potentially the problem of a few last RINO’s who may not join in the vote.

Doug Mastriano on Newsmax

Grant Stinchfield Interviewing

There are 700,000 mail in ballots that were never posted out

Mastriano cites the corruption in 1994. There was so much cheating Federal District threw out Stinson’s reelection result and awarded the seat to the Republican. Marks (R) versus Stinson (D),

If they stop certification of the votes that means the 20 electoral college votes won’t go to Joe Biden they will go to Donald Trump. If neither candidate gets 270 votes by December 14, then the USA is headed for a Contingent Election in the House in early January which Trump will likely win.

One state has done it, others will find it easy to follow. Trump’s team hope to repeat the process next in Arizona.

Curiously, several Republicans from both Pennsylvania were invited to the White House after the hearing on Wedsnesday. Similarly some from Michigan were invited to the White House on Nov 20th. And nobody said anything about it afterwards. h/t Bill C.

Where the heck are the Media?

Tonight on the news we heard about the case Trump lost in PA, but not the one he won, not the remarkable explanation by Judge McConnell, and not the extraordinary, historic move by the State representatives to overturn the result, and never ever the long lists of election fraud.

Don’t hunt for clues or information, or even coherent sentences from the Twitterati commentariat. Though it’s a good place to see what kind of mass blindsiding may be coming.

History is unfolding and the media are actively hiding it.
