US Post workers told to backdate Stamps, then stood down, interrogated

How much have we lost in the last month?

Until a week ago there was something slightly sacred about post marks– it was a legal document, a historical record of the day. Something we could rely on. In a small way, USPS represents The United States: all decent nations have decent postage systems. All crooked banana republics don’t.

Then we found out some US Postal Workers were told to backdate stamps. It may not seem like much compared to losing the right to free and fair elections. But on any normal day, this is a big deal.

Everyone understands what a backdated post mark means. This story is an easy point to share with victims-of-gaslighting. “Did you know there are multiple reports in at least two states where postal workers have been told to stamp ballots with false dates?” “Don’t you think the media ought to mention this?”

It used to mean something  |.. Image Urbanvibe14

 Project Veritas has been investigating whistleblower reports.

In Pennsylvania Richard Hopkins, a postal worker, says that he heard one worker getting in trouble for accidentally datestamping one ballot envelope  with the correct date — Nov 4 — when it should have been Nov 3. They has postdated all the other ballots picked up that day for Nov 3rd, thus laundering illegal votes and ensuring they would be counted.

He said  “I’m nervous. I am nervous because this is a big deal.” But he is willing to testify before Congress.

Hopkins did the original interview anonymously, but at work he was implicated as the one who had spoken up. They called him in to “bring up old problems” and ask questions. Then they told him to he was placed on unpaid leave. And now he’s been hauled into the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General, quizzed and coerced without a lawyer, until he signed an affadavit that was so weak, the Washington Post generated a Fake News headline saying  he had recanted.

Richard Hopkins says he did no such thing. And since he was wearing a wire, he has a record to back him up.

““I am right at this very moment looking at an article written by the Washington Post. It says that I fabricated the allegations of ballot tampering,” Mr. Hopkins said in a video posted on Twitter. “I am here to say that I did not recant my statements. That did not happen. That is not what happened.””

–Washington Times

A fundraiser was set up for Richard Hopkins at GoFundMe, because he’s done the right thing and is being punished for it. But for no good reason GoFundMe shut down the account and issued refunds. Undeterred he has started a new fundraiser on GiveSendGo.

Hopkins deserves to be supported by every patriotic American.

The liars and the corrupt cannot win this battle. The truth must prevail.

You can donate to Hopkins HERE.

A second post worker has also come forward. The postmaster told workers to keep ballots collected on Nov 4th separate from the other mail.

There are others in Pennsylvania,  Michigan:

O’Keefe said, “The new postal whistleblower’s testimony to us further confirms that post offices in different parts of the country are systematically sorting off late-ballots, so they would be eligible for counting.”

The Erie-based postal worker’s account lines up with the testimony of a postal worker from Traverse City, Michigan.

The Michigan USPS whistleblower said Wednesday there was a process set up for the post office workers involved in the bogus postmark scheme.

Presumably those who did backdate stamps don’t want to risk coming forward. It is illegal.

Think about the ugly choice all these workers had — to keep their jobs they had to break the law. Now some of them must be worried they might get caught.

    “… the Washington Post generated a Fake News headline saying he had recanted.”

    Andrew Bolt took this as fact, hook line and sinker, on the little bit of yesterday’s show I saw.

    I emailed Andrew yesterday to challenge him on his comments that there is no real evidence to show there was fraud. I sent links to Dr Shiva Ayyaduri’s excellent analysis (the video Boris linked yesterday) and the audio file of the former Michigan State senator who spent 24hrs straight in a counting centre as an observer. I thought these two were a good representation of authoritative information.

    The intro to my email was:

    ” Hi Andrew

    On your TV show you have said a couple of times there is no evidence of fraud in the US election. Maybe you are acting under instructions from the “top floor”, I don’t know. You are normally more sceptical of issues that do not seem right.

    But there is plenty of evidence, some minor some not so minor. ”

    I got this reply : ” First sentence: false

    Second sentence: false and offensive. So I stopped.

    Andrew Bolt”

    Either I struck a raw nerve or he has “a thin skin” and has a fixed position on the issue.

    Anyway thank goodness we have independent, critical thinkers like Alan Jones to watch and listen to.

        One thing I will say for Sky News over the other MSM is the diverse range of opinions, as for Bolt on some issues I agree with him on others I don’t but at least I’m listening to someone who is free to use their own judgement and opinion.
        As for why he believes there has been no electoral fraud in the states I could only guess at .

      That’s disappointing.

      I note this morning the Herald Sun has an article about the US election that starts:

      Donald Trump has made his first public appearance since the election was officially called for Joe Biden, but the US President continued to cast doubt on the result.

      Officially called! Why do they write such rubbish?
      It seems that tweet by the New York Times on 3 Nov about the media declares the winner seems to be true.

      Operating Software Vulnerabilities[edit]
      In a July 13, 2019 article,[44] Associated Press reporter Tami Abdollah reported that “the vast majority of 10,000 election jurisdictions nationwide use Windows 7 or an older operating system to create ballots, program voting machines, tally votes and report counts.” Windows 7 reaches its “end of life” on January 14, 2020, meaning that Microsoft will stop providing technical support such as patches to fix software vulnerabilities. For jurisdictions that have already purchased systems running on Windows 7, ES&S said it will be working with Microsoft to provide support until jurisdictions can update. Windows 10 came out in 2015. Though ES&S is testing a new system it’s unclear how long it will take to complete the process — federal and possible state recertification, plus rolling out updates — and if it will be done before primaries begin in February. Kevin Skoglund, chief technologist for Citizens for Better Elections, said county election officials point to Election Assistance Commission and state certifications as “rock-solid proof” their systems are secure, but don’t realize vendors are certifying systems under 2005 standards.

      Electronic Voting is used by the lazy and incompetent. If there is ANY connection to the internet it is open to hacking. If it is connected to other machines on an internal network it is open to local hacking. If any machine connection eg a bus or comms port can be connected to a password override device it is open to local hacking. If EProms can be “upgraded” without an audit trail it is subject to hacking.

      Then we get to the database used. Was a secure interface used with an audit train for password access? If not, access cannot be reliably traced.

      Finally we can look at “scripted input checking”. Load in 10,000 odd known votes and see what the software reports as a result. It should match without error.

      In May 2010, Dominion acquired Premier Election Solutions (formerly Diebold Election Systems) from Election Systems & Software (ES&S). ES&S had just acquired PES from Diebold and was required to sell off PES by the United States Department of Justice for anti-trust concerns.[4]
      In June 2010, Dominion acquired Sequoia Voting Systems.[5]

      In 2014, ES&S claimed that “in the past decade alone,” it had installed more than 260,000 voting systems, more than 15,000 electronic poll books, provided services to more than 75,000 elections. The company has installed statewide voting systems in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, and West Virginia.[citation needed] As of 2019 ES&S claimed a U.S. market share of more than 60 percent in customer voting system installations.[2]

      Own the voting machines and you own the election results.

        It also appears that some judges are part of the swamp, which doesnt help….

        I think Trump will be vindicated, and the Left needs to get its tiny brainstem around the fact that it will happen.

        Reading through some online comments, it seems nore than quite a few US citizens are ready for a fight, however it comes.

        Some are resigned to Civil War 2 as a way of clearing out evil from the land. Obviously no one wants this….much better for a court to fix things.

      So true. Problem is there is so much censoring going on across ALL MSM outlets very few people actually know what’s actually going on wrt the US election. The world as a whole is already moving on and taking for granted Biden will be sworn in as the President of the US. It will take some dramatic event to break through the dual walls of deception and ignorance. So far it’s not happening. We shall see if it does in good time. If it doesn’t then we better get used to the idea of Biden as POTUS, and move on to the next stage of the war against the people of the West driven by evil forces working behind the scenes to instigate the Great Reset that’s ready to be rolled out as soon as Biden is sworn in as POTUS. We will have to come up with suitable ways to work around the Great Reset at the personal level given our leaders have sold their souls to that evil cause.

    Morning Jo,
    Trump needs to solicit & receive the aid of all Republic State Legisla-tures (however RINO./Rep. In Name Only) they may have been in the past, and most of the conservatives on the Supreme Court, if he is to be successful in reversing this banal “Premature” and fraudulent result.
    If he loses, America is the only real loser.
    The Democrats policies, if even only semi-implemented (they have a different position on fossil fuels every other day), will have the effect of at least a 2 year recession, affecting even us minions in Australia.
    You can’t continually moronically recite “Keep It In The Ground”, without any consideration on all the follow-on effects.
    I hope he wins, but dread he may not. I’m putting my money where my head is & not my heart, and have just last week converted 2/3’s of my super to cash. Biden & Harris’s socialist experiment will know no bounds.
    Warm regards, reformed warmist of Logan

    Apart from fraudulent postmarks with the wrong date, an additional but not widely reported problem is having no postmarks at all or ineligible ones.

    Bear in mind that the following article is from the far Left NPR. This article was written before the election so they were probably concerned that the Left would lose votes otherwise they wouldn’t have bothered reporting it.

      The focus on ballots is pointless. Once they’re in the box that’s it, there is no way to separate good from bad. The issue is the return envelopes and if they have been discarded it’s over. All Trump can really do is force the nation to confront the issue and ensure it doesn’t happen again.

        I think the view is that if the fraudulent or invalid votes cannot be separated from the valid votes then that entire batch of both valid and invalid votes has to be discarded.

          Yeah which means another election, that would be a big ask. Has anything like that ever happen before?
          We’re talking about admitting failure of the entire US election process. There would be extreme reluctance to go that way, far more likely to sweep it under carpet. While quietly making sure it doesn’t happen again.
          COVID would be cited as the excuse for ‘mistakes’ in processes being made.
          It’s like bailing out the banks – Too big to fail.

            Binny, no it doesn’t mean another election. Either thousands of tainted votes must be discarded or the state legislatures must appoint delegates to send to the House for the House vote in early January.

            If States feel that their votes can’t be certified their electors can’t be certified either. If neither man gets 270 certified electors then the House vote becomes the decider. And it’s not congressmen of the House, it’s the State delegates send specifically for this purpose that matter. Which Reps will win.

    Being the automatons they mostly are, except for their Billionaire Socialist controllers, many of the Left voted by mail-in votes (as distinct from absentee votes) because they were told to be terrified of COVID and because they are mostly mindless drones they just followed orders.

    Conservatives, being independent thinkers, were sensible but not terrified about COVID and mostly voted in person.

    Trump knew all along that mail-in voting would be a disaster and would be used to fraudulently swing the election. He was right, as usual. The Left have no morals whatsoever.

      President Trump was brilliant in changing into being a constitutional problem of needing a authoritized chain of command which then most of the dumped votes fail or fraudulent.

          I am not convinced that the US legal system is not sufficiently contaminated with dishonest hard core Leftists for there to be a fair challenge.

          The Left have has 12 years to plan for this, ever since the (fraudulent?) election of Obama and the unexpected election of Trump who won despite a rigged-against-him and highly propagandised (by the Left via social and legacy media) election.

      The simple reality is the Left just doenst work. Its rubbish with money and it destroys everything it touches.

      I am hoping that peopel wont have to learn the hard way.

      Part of the problem too is that unlike the WW2 generation who saw what was required to stop evil, the generations that follwed have been allowed to become fat, dumb and lazy in terms of truly grasping what s required. The Left also made sure history was dumbed down so no one learnt why the Left is bad, pushed God out of schools, so morality became “relative”, and enouraged all forms of evil to flourish unchecked.

      The Left knew to tyake down the west, militariliy it couldnt do it, so it set on a course to rot out our spiritual, moral and legal foundations, corrupt our children and destroy our sense of right and wrong. In a word – push evil as “normal”.

      Maybe we will see another civil war in the US, but maybe , unfortunately, its required.

        I too hope we don’t have to learn the hard way but the reality is we’ve gone too already. As you implied most have become fat, dumb and lazy, and the left have taken much advantage of all that to build their evil empire. Trump comes along to upset their plans a little bit for a little while but obviously it would or could not last. He is just one person against a whole army of evil ones, plus he can’t remain as acting President forever. So, it’s pretty clear to me at least we will have to learn the hard way, as always throughout history.

        History is not told so much in schools these days.
        Youtube have videos with UNI students being asked some general knowledge questions.
        eg
        Who was Adolf Hitler?
        Can you name 1 concentration camp?
        When did WW2 start/end?
        Who was Mao Tse Tung?

        Lots of other questions as well. Some sudents seemed reasonably well informed but I found it staggering the number who had no knowledge of Hitler, even when the interviewer told them about WW2 and the extermination of the Jews.

        If we don’t acknowledge and learn from history, we will keep repeating the same mistakes!

        I agree with everything you said, particularly your second last paragraph. I call it the diminution of responsibility and have been going on about it for years. It’s a thimble and pea trick. You can promote morals and ethics and appear to be very decent and virtuous but without responsibility it is meaningless.
        It’s not immediately evident and generally people just don’t think about it. Only one green thumb is proof.

    If the Left in America (or anywhere) can commit such illegality when out of power, imagine what they’ll do if the unthinkable happens and they get into power.

      Here is the quote:

      In Pennsylvania Richard Hopkins, a postal worker, says that he heard one worker getting in trouble for accidentally datestamping one ballot envelope with the correct date — Nov 4 — when it should have been Nov 3. They has postdated all the other ballots picked up that day for Nov 3rd, thus laundering illegal votes and ensuring they would be counted.

      In other words, they actually stamped an earlier date, Nov 3, on the ballot envelope instead of the correct date, Nov 4. So to your point, he should have said they predated the envelopes. In any case, it is a federal crime for a postal worker to knowingly stamp the envelope with the wrong date and fraud if it is done to allow a ballot to be counted that was receive after it could legally be counted.

        Like the four seasons clusterf**k, this is another example of the competence of the Trump team. It should have said predate, but it did not. It should have said how many votes were in this alleged fraud. The Hill goes through every single case, and tallies the numbers of votes affected, and they are saying that even if the votes were given to Trump it would not affect the outcome.

          Post means after.
          They post dated the envelope; they dated the envelope after they received it.
          They dated the envelope with the date before they received it.
          They posted dated an envelope with a predated stamp.

    This is unbelievable. Organized corruption and treason in the government.

    ‘Treason’ is actions like mass breaking of election laws. Treason is an organized attack on the state.

    In reply to:

    “Hopkins did the original interview anonymously, but at work he was implicated as the one who had spoken up. They called him in to “bring up old problems” and ask questions.
    Then they told him to he was placed on unpaid leave.

    And now he’s been hauled into the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General, quizzed and coerced without a lawyer, until he signed an affadavit that was so weak, the Washington Post generated a Fake News headline saying he had recanted.”

    In Canada, threatening a postal worker ….. from doing their government job’s responsibility.

    Comment:
    In Canada, all government employees are required to sign a form stating it is their official responsibility (if they do not report the illegal action, they will risk their job and risk criminal prosecution) to report any known illegal activity to a long list of options, including police for an serious criminal activity such as election fraud, and all ever Canada government regulated company must included a certified guaranteed whistle-blower protected line that has the power to investigate senior officials, officially. … That is run by companies completely independent of the government who in this case would have immediately call a half dozen Canadian agencies, including multiple police forces.

    In Canada, Ordering a worker of the government to do an illegal act is illegal…. …. A high level organized plan to do illegal actions, to interfere in an election .. …Would result in instant firings in the Inspector General’s office and the start of a massive investigation.

    In Canada. The party that initiated the organized plans to do illegal actions to interfere in any official election, would be banned.

    And almost all party officials, that were in anyway connected to the illegal action, would be banned from any future political activity in Canada.

    In Canada, the law does not protect a corrupt party. Corruption of the legal system is treason. Treason must be punished by banning the political party.

    What a load of flatulent greenhouse gas emitted with this fantasy:as the Biden win the claims are becoming more fantastical – “Pennsylvania postal worker Richard Hopkins, who claimed ballots were tampered with, has retracted his statement. He has admitted to investigators that he signed a false affidavit.” Furthermore, Ohio’s state secretary Frank LaRose, who is a Republican, said: “There’s a great human capacity for inventing things that aren’t true about elections. The conspiracy theories and rumours and all those things run rampant. For some reason, elections breed that type of mythology,”

      https://dailycaller.com/2020/11/11/richard-hopkins-postal-service-project-veritas/

      A postal service worker in Pennsylvania is disputing House Democrats’ claims that he recanted allegations that his supervisors ordered employees to back-date mail-in voting ballots after Election Day.

      Democrats on the House Oversight Committee said in a statement on Tuesday that Richard Hopkins, a postal worker in Erie, Pa., retracted his story during interviews with investigators from the U.S. Postal Service’s office of the inspector general.

      Hopkins claimed in an interview with the conservative group Project Veritas last week that he overheard supervisors discussing backdating mail-in ballots received after the election on Nov. 3 so that they would still be counted in the state’s vote tally.

      Videos of interviews with Hopkins have received millions of views and attracted congressional attention. Hopkins also set up an online fundraiser that had generated $130,000 in donations until it was taken offline on Tuesday.

        Watch as things get even more loopy. Trumpo will stick to his guns. I suspect teh Left will start rioting to distract people. Dont rule out a direct attack on the White House by the Left..w.hich is why they have a steel barrier around it.

If Trump fails to remain President and doesn’t proceed to arrest and charge all the leaders of the criminal cult, and shut down the big corporations that produce so much fake news and propaganda (including “our” ABC) then nothing will stop them from achieving their wet dreams. This is our last chance and I suspect Trump knows that.

      “The information in that video is entirely false,” said Tracy Wimmer, a spokesperson for the Michigan Department of State, in an email. “Michigan does not have a postmark deadline for ballots. It has a hard deadline — they must all be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day to count.”

            If by “word of mouth” you are implying they were just repeating hearsay, then no. They were actual witnesses to what occurred. that’s not “flimsy,” it’s “testimony,” which is ALWAYS verbal.

            Additionally, counter to your implication that it is hearsay, which is not accepted as testimony, they filed affidavits, which are legal documents acceptable in a court of law. And there were LOTS of them.

          One day you guys might actually look to do some research instead of baseless assertions (hint – use the internet)

          “The Trump campaign also sought to temporarily stop counting some ballots in Detroit. It cited a Republican poll watcher who had said she had been told by an unidentified person that late mail ballots were being predated to before election day, so they would be considered valid.

          The judge, Cynthia Stephens, repeatedly asserted this was hearsay, but Trump campaign lawyer Thor Hearne sought to argue that it wasn’t – despite it having been someone who said they heard about something they weren’t personally involved in. He pointed to a vague note the poll watcher produced – which said “entered receive date as 11/2/20 on 11/4/20” – as evidence.

          Stephens: So I want to make sure I understand you. The affiant [the person who makes an affidavit] is not the person who had knowledge of this. Is that correct?

          Hearne: The affiant had direct firsthand knowledge of the communication with the elections inspector and the document they provided them.

          Stephens: OK, which is generally known as hearsay, right?

          Hearne: I would not think that’s hearsay, your honour. That’s firsthand personal knowledge by the affiant of what she physically observed. And we included an exhibit which is a physical copy of the note that she was provided.

          The two later returned to the point, after Stephens reviewed the note, and Stephens echoed Judge Diamond’s exasperation.

          Stephens: I’m still trying to understand why this isn’t hearsay.

          Hearne: Well, it’s, it, I –

          Stephens: I absolutely understand what the affiant says she heard someone say to her. But the truth of the matter … that you’re going for was that there was an illegal act occurring. Because, other than that, I don’t know what its relevancy is.

          Hearne: Right. I would say, your honour, in terms of the hearsay point, this is a firsthand factual statement made by Ms Conoron, and she has made that statement based on her own firsthand physical evidence and knowledge —

          Stephens: “I heard somebody else say something.” Tell my why that’s not hearsay. Come on, now.

          Hearne: Well it’s a firsthand statement of her physical …

    When “election is certified, and we can have a post mortem, I expect we’ll
    find evidence that will satisfy most scientific types that it was as much a fraud as
    anthropogenic global warming. To buy global warming you have to understand the data sets themselves
    are the fraud; they show warming but are a lie. So with our votes, the count can be accurate of votes
    themselves fraudulently cast.

    This is the kind of question I might ask. Given that there was a black candidate for the senate from Michigan, was there a significant difference
    in the ballot splitting of nominally black folks who voted in person, vs. nominally black folks who voted by mail. (Yes, early suggestions are
    that there were many more ‘straight tickets’ voted by mail).

    Once the election is certified, and those in office are beyond legal reach, I believe we’ll find out that the voting patterns in states that changed their rules, because COVID,
    vis a vis their history, are different that the changes in states that kept their rules the same.

    Now American demographics and attitudes are very fluid, so these result probably can’t be dispositive.

    Still, consider. It’s not that the polls were in error, or that some were more in error than others, it’s that all were in error in the same direction. In 1968, 72, and 76 (I went and looked) the polls were’nt very good, but they bracketed the election, that is there were errors on both sides of the result.

    And vote count “discrepencies”?

    I don’t think there is much argument that a majority of Americans no longer have faith in our institutions; in the long run it is as damaging to the republic if they are warped in ones favor as if the are warped against one. And warped they are.

      By the way, similar research after the last election established at least 8,000,000 invalid registrations in the US. NOTE I did not say fraudulent, i said invalid.
      these will happen over time due to natural causes. If you mail ballots to every registration address, you are sending out enough ballots than might be returned
      improperly to cover the margins of victory in those states did such mailings. If you also fail to validate signatures; and assume a returned ballot must be valid……
      well those temperatures from the 1930’s keep changing too, and it’s the same folks.

    Off topic, and maybe it has come up earlier, but I’ve just read that the NSW parliament has unveiled an Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap, and it has bipartisan support, to create Renewable Energy Zones, (“which are the modern day equivalent of traditional power stations.”) with about 60 new solar and wind farms across the state, more than quadrupling clean energy generation! “NSW is in a unique position to benefit from emerging low cost technologies like wind, solar, batteries, and pumped hydro……putting the state on the path to becoming one of the lowest cost, lowest carbon regions in the world.” Firming may even be provided by hydrogen generators! 4 out of 5 NSW coal fired generators providing for 75% of NSW electricity, are scheduled for closure over the next 15 yrs. energy.nsw.gov.au
    Big business is so riddled with woke uni grads that there is no resistance to this push. And also renewables will be a huge boom for mining interests (I think I saw that for just Britain to go significantly over to electric cars, that country alone would require world copper production to double!)
    Also capitalism is in such bad shape, you can forget manufacturing in the west, so why not get onto the Govt tit, and suck on renewable subsidies. There’s nothing else doing. (When aged care is touted as an industry, I’m ready to give up!)

    Biden leads GA by 17k votes however 17k votes where flipped by a “software glitch” the hand count will correct this error not sure what happens to 33.5k votes that were lost and the 16 college votes will go to Trump making it Biden 290 trump 248.

    Then there is the basket case in PA, aside from the mail in ballot issue if a recount was conducted trump would win due to the 220k vote flip giving trump a 400k vote lead, not sure what would happen to 917k votes that have been lost.

    So it’s now Biden 270 trump 268 and game on in AZ.

    Of course incompetent fools that can’t stand the idea of the deplorable great unwashed having a say in who is in charge will resort to stupid one liner comments on this blog and violence and rioting elsewherek n

    If courts declare certain state elections invalid (due to fraud) and neither party can get 270 electoral college votes then under the Constitution each state has to appoint one single “elector” no matter what the state population is and then they’ll vote for President and Trump will win 31 to 19 since 31 states are Republican and 19 are Democrat.

      That’s under the provisions of the 12th Amendment.

      Are you happy there are no Republicans that would doublecross Trump. There is a subspecies of Republican known as a Homosapien republicanis nevertrumper.

    Trump campaign’s case in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania:

    The case focuses on 592 ballots that have not been counted in a county where the president is behind by 130,000 votes, and in a state where the president is behind by 46,000 votes.

    THE COURT: I understand. I am asking you a specific question, and I am looking for a specific answer. Are you claiming that there is any fraud in connection with these 592 disputed ballots?

    MR. GOLDSTEIN: To my knowledge at present, no.

    THE COURT: Are you claiming that there or improper influence upon the elector to these 592 ballots?

    MR. GOLDSTEIN: To my knowledge at present. no.

    From Turley:

    Alaska — Trump’s and the Senate seat has flipped Democrap -> Republican.
    Yesterday: North Carolina — Trump’s as of yesterday.

    Pennsylvania: Evidence: 2.6 million votes of mail-in votes without signature validation. Invalid.
    680,000 votes cast in two counties Alegheny(?) and another one. without being seen by Republican and Democrat `scrutineers’ together. Invalid.
    There’s a lot going on in Georgia and Wisconsin. Check out Trump’s team sites.

    The MSM are making big fools of themselves.

    Both Biden and Wallace have short memories.

    Karl Rove, in his own words from his Wall Street Journal Opinion Piece:

    “This Election Result Won’t Be Overturned”

    “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is correct that Mr. Trump is ‘100% within his rights” to go to court over concerns about fraud and transparency. But the president’s efforts are unlikely to move a single state from Mr. Biden’s column, and certainly they’re not enough to change the final outcome.”

    “There are only three statewide contests in the past half-century in which recounts changed the outcome: the 1974 New Hampshire Senate race, the 2004 Washington governor’s contest, and the 2008 Minnesota Senate election. The candidates in these races were separated, respectively, by 355, 261 and 215 votes after Election Day.”

      Yes, but those disputed results related to honest counting errors, not massive fraud.

      Never has there been an election with widespread, systematic fraud like this one.

      The clip has 10k thumbs up and <1k thumbs down. Surprising considering it should be regarded as politically divisive. Maybe its circulation has been confined to specific groups.

    That should be

    Take out the comma and insert it into

    to give

    And it is pretty naive to expect an honest election in the US. US politicians do everything they can to fiddle the results. The Bush-Gore election of 2000 (I remember it well – I was living in the US) was far from the first dodgy election.

    I used to respect your comments and analysis re climate change which is your expertise. Stick to this instead of drumming up conspiracy theories about voter fraud. In any election there is always voter fraud on both sides. For example dead people voting. I am a right wing climate sceptic conservative but am pleased to see the end of a lying, arrogant bully

      Doug,, Trump certainly has his faults, but we are going to need a lot of “ bullying” and worse if we have any chance of a megga fork up of the current economic stability that the western world is founded on.
      The proposed Democrat GND plan will see us all on a path to the same condition as Venezeula !

      I always tell people that Trump is an easy hate being repugnantly narcissistic, a self promoting, gloating braggart and , indeed, a bully. Yet those may be the very traits that we’re needed by an outsider to break through first the opposition within party he was to run for and then to overcome the infinitely more organised Democratic machine combined with barely hidden bias of the media and the bureaucracy of the Federal government..

      Take the time to objectively assess what was done and what wasn’t under the Trump administration (so far) and reflect on how much worse things would be if Hillary had won ,as she almost certainly would have done against any of the other 2016 Republican candidates. Even now, Scott Morrison has started talking about emissions reductions with Joe Biden – imagine where we would be along that path if those sorts of discussions had started 4 years ago.
