Michigan votes un-certified, back in play, after harassment and threats against children

Two Republican canvassers wouldn’t certify the dubious votes in Wayne County, Michigan. Then for two hours they were worked on, and their families and children were threatened, they agreed to certify under duress, and only with the condition of a full audit. But the audit idea was dropped, just another lie. The two canvassers then decided to rescind their votes, and wrote and signed affidavits.

The vote in Michigan remains uncertified. If the electoral college votes are not certified before December 14 and no candidate gets 270 votes the election goes to the House in January, as voted on by State representatives, not Congressional members. Republicans control that House.

Flood of evidence of Voter Fraud coming in the next two weeks…

Powell: “we will start putting documents online this week”

So many American patriots have come forward Sidney Powell, one of Trumps senior legal team, can’t even put a number on the affidavits.

Glen Beck asks: If 25% of what you guys said yesterday turn out to be true, this is the biggest crime in American history. And you don’t put this together in two weeks.

Powell describes something that is a global criminal conspiracy of “mind blowing” proportions. It’s not just the Democrats and Dominion and Smartmatic that don’t want the word to get out, but all the State and Federal governments around the world who were elected with the help of them — who also have to cover this up, plus the institutions of the US that should have stopped this and didn’t — or who should have reported on it, but covered it up. Then there are all the vested interests who were expecting a seat at the table with a Biden win, not to mention China. Witnesses are being put under protection.  There are trillions of dollars at stake. Whole industries and careers will flourish or fail depending on the outcome.

It’s a fight to the death. If the evidence can be presented and win the day, there will be no recovering for the Democrats in their current form, for the Legacy Fake News and for many careers. But if witnesses get intimidated, lawyers flee, the cases aren’t framed correctly, or the outcomes too late and the mass media censorship rules the day there will be no recovering for the idea of free and fair elections in the US of A.

Powell confirmed the rumours that someone had seized the servers in Germany that hold voting records of many US States. Yesterday alarmingly she wasn’t sure if it was the work of “the good guys or the bad guys”. Bad guys, presumably, might well be hiding the evidence to protect their own necks.  If it were the Good guys, we’d assume they’d be in touch with the Trump team. Sidney Powell now says she “hears” it was “our forces”.  Be nice if that was a little less ambiguous.

Dominion, by the way, the honest upstanding voting machine company with nothing to hide has suddenly closed offices, and 40% of their employees have deleted their linked in accounts, their social media records. Oddly, their software engineers are located in Serbia.

Over 40% of Dominion’s employees with profiles on LinkedIn have eliminated their profiles from the social media giant after the Election Day in the US (November 3rd).

Mosher calls it a 100% win for Trump

This is the same Steven Mosher who is a long time commenter on the climate debate and China expert. He’s 100% confident Trump won, and will be seen to win.

Top Trump lawyer foretells huge new evidence dump in 2020 vote fraud case

Steven Mosher

November 20, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — I believe, as someone who has been “on the calls,” that Trump’s legal team will easily be able to prove in court that massive voter fraud has occurred and that the president actually won re-election. I say this with 100 percent confidence.

 Most movies don’t have a script this good:

Giuliani tore into the media for claiming that there is “no evidence” of fraud, saying: “Do you know how many affidavits we have in the Michigan case? Two hundred and twenty affidavits. What they swear to is that at 4:30 in the morning, a truck pulled up to the Detroit center where they were counting ballots. The people thought it was food so they all ran to the truck. It wasn’t food, it was thousands and thousands of ballots, and the ballots were in garbage cans, they were in paper bags, they were cardboard boxes and they were taken into the center. They were put on a number of tables.”

“At that time,” Giuliani continued, “they thought all of the Republican inspectors had left, all but two had. Here’s what they jointly swear to: that every ballot that they could see, everything that they could hear, these were ballots for Biden. When they saw a ballot, these were ballots only for Biden, nothing down ticket. Many of them were triple-counted.”

This takes us back to Sidney Powell’s interview with Glenn Beck, which suggested to me that we may soon learn more about how computerized voting systems in the U.S. and overseas were used in the election heist.

Glen Beck interviews Sidney Powell

Powell drops another bombshell on Lou Dobbs:


We know that the Dominion Voting Systems machines used in dozens of states were connected to the internet, even when they should not have been. It would be surprising if there were not a master server or servers where all — and I do mean all — of the voting data are sent and stored in real time.

And here’s where the story gets really, really interesting.

For several days there have been reports that U.S. forces carried out a raid on a facility in Frankfurt, Germany, run by a company called ScytI that was involved in storing, counting, and perhaps manipulating U.S. voter data, and that its computer servers had been seized. (It is too complicated to explain here, but all of the companies involved in computerized voting, with names like Smartmatic and Dominion, seem to all be connected in some way and to all use the same software.)


Interesting, too, is that the main Dominion office in Toronto has closed along with the Dominion office in Denver. Hundreds of Dominion employees have deleted their LinkedIn accounts and other social media profiles. And, just this morning, Dominion representatives didn’t show up for an oversight hearing of the Pennsylvania Assembly at which they were scheduled to appear. These are not the actions of a company that has nothing to hide.

Democrat asks “How do you deprogram 75 million people” Re-education camp?

A Democrats Regional Director suggested that Trump supporters should be deprogrammed in similar ways to post World War II tactics.

‘How *Do* You Deprogram 75 Million People?’ —

Mary Margaret Olohan, Daily Caller

“No seriously…how *do* you deprogram 75 million people,” California Democrats  regional director and Democratic National Convention member David Atkins tweeted Wednesday. “Where do you start? Fox? Facebook? We have to start thinking in terms of post-WWII Germany or Japan. Or the failures of Reconstruction in the South.”

Alternately, they could try the old fashioned way: Talk to people. Investigate the fears of election fraud and do honest actual recounts where signatures are checked. Stop trying to dox, harass and intimidate lawyers so the Trump camp gets a fair hearing.

The Democrats can’t lose unless they were traitorous corruptocrats reliant on rampant ballot fraud.

There is always a way to rationalize anything, especially if you project your own flaws onto opponents:

“This is not your standard partisan policy disagreement,” he continued. “This is a conspiracy theory fueled belligerent death cult against reality & basic decency. The only actual policy debates of note are happening within the dem coalition between left and center left.”

Basic decency starts with a conversation, not a “reeducation camp”. Death threats are not OK?

There are no policy debates between the far left and anyone else because the national conversation has been destroyed. The losing left use pointless namecalling to hide an abject failure to reason.  Which racist bigot is next on the cancel culture list?

The battle for the Republic: “This is the 1775 of our generation”

History in the making.

“This has been a massive attack on the greatest democracy on Earth”

Breitbart has the 9 key points from this press conference:

  1. Observers were allegedly prevented from watching mail-in ballots being opened.
  2. Allegedly unequal application of the law in Democratic counties
  3. Voters allegedly arrived at the polls to discover other people had voted for them.
  4. Election officials were allegedly told not to look for defects in ballots, and to backdate ballots.
  5. Ballots casting votes for Joe Biden and no other candidates were allegedly run several times through machines.
  6. Absentee ballots were accepted in Wisconsin without being applied for first.
  7. There were allegedly “overvotes,” with some precincts allegedly recording more voters than residents, among other problems.
  8. Voting machines and software are allegedly owned by companies with ties to the Venezuelan regime and to left-wing donor George Soros.
  9. The Constitution provides a process for electing a president if the vote is corrupted.

There is an open battle between the media and the Trump team, and the FBI — the gloves are off:

To paraphrase the last hostile twenty minutes.

1:10: Rudy: I can prove to you 18 different ways. …   Our role here is to go around the iron curtain, it’s to get the message out to the people. It’s to do your (the media’s) job, because you won’t do it.

On the FBI: They (hillary and co) made up the Russian Collusion plot. They (the FBI) withheld that for four years. What do we have to do to get the FBI to wake up? Maybe we need a whole new agency to protect us?

1:16  Sidney Powell: We have no idea how many Democrat or Republicans have paid to  have the system rigged to work for them. This is a massive, well coordinated effort to deprive the people of their most basic right. It is the 1775 of our generation and beyond.

Sidney Powell: It’s true, (the computer servers were seized in Germany)  but we don’t know if the good guys or the bad guys got it.

1:30 Rudy Giuliani is asked about the multiple cases being dismissed. Rudy replies that they only have 3 lawsuits, and the lawsuits that have been dropped have been put in by private entities. The only case they have dismissed is the one in Michigan because they got the outcome they wanted.

The only lawyers that have left have left because they and their family have been threatened, their children have been threatened. We have a little difficulty getting lawyers because they are being threatened with being killed. Because of the ridiculous way you’ve covered this.

Rudy: We’re not dragging it out. Al Gore had a lot more time that we did. Our witnesses don’t want to be exposed to the tender mercies of a vicious press. I have great difficulty getting witnesses to speak publicly. They don’t trust you (the media), they don’t like you, and they think you put their lives in jeopardy.

That comes about because of the hysterical way you have covered this (he says talking to the media).

Rudy G: “The censorship by Big Tech and our media is almost as dangerous — maybe just as dangerous as the election fraud we are revealing. We’re headed for a very bad place. “

Smartmatic, the Venezuelan software that rigs elections in up to 28 USA states

How did the USA end up using Venezuelan software to rig elections?

Answer, not by accident, surely…

Read how the US Republic left a hole in their own state security so wide that no one can see the wall. Then ponder that neither the CIA nor the FBI stopped this software being used in 28 states, nor did they stop the election results being stored and counted in foreign countries. The Free Press forgot to investigate, and still don’t think it matters.

The program called Smartmatic counts votes, and changes them too. It was designed for Hugo Chavez to win in Venezuela, and to be undetectable, and it worked. Thanks to a whistleblower, the Trump team has a sworn testimony from a high ranking former Venezuelan military officer who saw it in action. He watched as the Chavez team followed the results on big screens and realized they were too far behind. They realized they needed drastic action so they … stopped the counting… spent two hours “adjusting” results, and then started counting again… and who would have guessed — but the election results swung the other way. Spooky eh?

Speaking of accidents, the Chairman of Smartmatic is already on the Biden Simulation of a Transition team.

Vice Admiral Peter Neffenger (USCG retired) is a member of the Homeland Security transition committee and was the head of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) under the Obama Administration.

USA, Venezuela, What’s the Difference? — About twenty years.

The testimonial from the high ranking Venezuelan military officer who worked with Chavez is damning — the software was always intended to subvert the voters wishes.

Hugo Chavez wanted “undetectable” vote manipulation:

Chavez wanted electronic fraud that was undetectable.

From the Affadavit @SidneyPowell1  | (Click to enlarge)


Do these software tricks work? Oh boy do they work…

In the 2004 “recall election” in Venezuela millions marched in the streets to get rid of Chavez, but it appears the voting software flipped a 40:60 exit poll result to a 60:40 “winning” result:

 Monica Showalter, American Thinker: The last time we heard about that was in Venezuela’s 2004 fraud-plagued recall referendum on then-President Hugo Chavez. Millions and millions of Venezuelans marched in the streets against him , and then when the recall referendum was held, it failed hugely, something that seemed very strange given the size of the crowds. That was the fiasco that official election observer Jimmy Carter praised so highly as free and fair “despite what went on in the totalization room” according to the Carter Center report. After that, computer scientists from Amherst, Stanford, U.C. Santa Cruz, Johns Hopkins, and Harvard all found evidence of vote flipping statistically speaking. Besides their conclusions that it was a statistical impossibility, a well-known pollster, Penn, Schoen & Berland, taking exit polls at the same referendum found that 60% were in favor of throwing Chavez out, and 40% favored keeping him. Much to his surprise, the scorecard came out in almost the exact reverse, 58-42. Flipped.

In a crisis, stop counting?

According to the former Venezuelan Military whistleblower, Smartmatic allowed a team to watch the results come in live so they knew how many votes they needed to fake. In 2013, when the situation required really big cheating, they decided to “reset” the whole count, go offline for a couple of hours and “make the adjustments”:

After the Smartmatic Electoral Management System was put in place, I closely observed several elections where the results were manipulated using #Smartmatic software. One such election was in December 2006… [another was] On April 14, 2013,” In that election, Nicolás Maduro ran against Capriles Radonsky… Inside that location was a control room in which there were multiple digital display screens – TV screens – for results of voting in each state in Venezuela. The actual voting results were fed into that room and onto the displays over an internet feed, which was connected to a sophisticated computer system created by Smartmatic. People in that room were able to see in “real time” whether the vote that came through the electronic voting system was in their favor or against them.

By two o’clock in the afternoon on that election day Capriles Radonsky was ahead of Nicolás Maduro by two million votes. When Maduro and his supporters realized the size of Radonsky’s lead they were worried that they were in a crisis mode and would lose the election.

So, the decision was made to reset the entire system. Maduro’s and his supporters ordered the network controllers to take the internet itself offline in practically all parts in Venezuela and to change the results. It took the voting system operators approximately two hours to make the adjustments in the vote from Radonsky to Maduro… By the time the system operators finish, they had achieved a convincing, but narrow victory of 200,000 votes for Maduro.

Things must have been going very badly for the Biden team to have to stop the vote counts in so many states in the middle of the night to stop Trump winning there and then.

The founder of Smartmatic admitted electronic tampering can change “a million votes.”

For some reason the Smartmatic crew fell out with the Venezuelan government and in 2017, Antonio Mugica, Former Founder and CEO of Smartmatic, said previous elections were all reliable but the last one was manipulated in the order of one million votes. Furthermore he said it was possible because there were not election observers in the room from both parties.


If you haven’t already seen it,  Newsmax TV and Sidney Powell on the whistleblower:


The misinformation about misinformation

As word spreads about the travesty that is the US electoral system, the airwaves are filling up with fog. The aim here is to distract people with trivia that can be corrected so that the Biden fans can use the words “debunked” in the same sentence as “Dominion” and “Smartmatic”.


Snopes is already onto the link between Smartmatic and the Biden “team, telling us it’s mostly false that:

“A member of U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team, Peter Neffenger, served as chairman of Dominion Voting’s “subsidiary,” Smartmatic.”

Watch the pea. Smartmatic isn’t a subsidiary of Dominion (though Dominion once bought a subsidiary of Smartmatic), but it still makes software that is designed to rig elections and it counts many of the votes in the 2020 election. Maybe that matters? Snopes is bravely slaying strawmen in a fog. It just wants you to think it’s debunking stuff that matters.

To that end, Smartmatic and Dominion have declared themselves “competitors”. But it’s just semantics.  Smartmatic also says “it has no ties to political parties”. (Apart from the Chairman helping Biden on Homeland Security.)

How different are Dominion and Smartmatic? Like clones:

 Monica Showalter, American Thinker: … in short, Venezuelan-led Smartmatic bought U.S.-based Sequoia, put its technology into Sequoia, and then sold it to Dominion. Dominion denies having anything to do with Smartmatic now, though at one point it allowed Smartmatic to market its same technology abroad in places where Dominion didn’t do business (they got into a lawsuit over Puerto Rico), but the bottom line is that the technology is all the same because it was all the same company.

The Whistleblower agrees.


Voters have no idea their vote is recorded the opposite way they intended:


It doesn’t matter what the voter decides, it’s what the software decides that matters:
