….there was significant electoral fraud in the 2020 election….

October 29, 2022

Election fraud in Pennsylvania — and how to stop it

By Gregory Stenstrom and Leah Hoopes

If you believe that there was significant electoral fraud in the 2020 election, the big question you have today is: “What’s changed?” What will make the 2022 midterms any different from 2020? This is even more pressing in places where there is any question of fraud in the primaries.  

It’s late, but there is still time to address the problem, as we must if we wish to avoid seeing our representative republic—in which voters choose their representatives—suffer a fatal blow.  

We write as citizens who have published a book filled with hard, physical evidence that the 2020 election was stolen.

We released “The Parallel Election: A Blueprint for Deception” on August 9, 2022, describing in detail who, what, when, where,  and how the massive election fraud was perpetrated. We have proof that approximately 70,000 real mail-in ballots were secreted away, and approximately 120,000 fake mail-in ballots were injected into the election in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Tens of thousands more votes were fraudulently infused, to unilaterally deliver the approximately 80,000 votes used to declare Joe Biden and an equally corrupt undercard, the “winners” in the 2020 election in Pennsylvania. We called this phenomenon, whereby fake ballots were substituted for real ones, a “Parallel Election.” We have further documented this on the social media platform  https://www.patriot.online/

We have the receipts, affidavits, documents, video and audio admissions by election officials—and even the admissions in opposing lawyers’ own court filings and responses—that the election was stolen, and at a minimum should be decertified in  Pennsylvania. Furthermore, we have two ongoing lawsuits in the appellate trajectory making this point.  

We believe that the same actors did the exact same thing, in the exact same way, in the May 2022 primary in Pennsylvania; so much so, that it is impossible to even know who all the beneficiaries—and losers—are anymore. 

With unreconciled, fraudulent returns of 109% of registered voters counted in Allegheny County (Pittsburgh), Pennsylvania—not the expected 20%-25% that normally turn out to vote in a midterm—the 2022 primary was a quagmire of deception and ineptitude that will likely be repeated for the upcoming November 2022 election in Pennsylvania. 

The way the election fraud and “parallel election” is done can be summarized as: 

  • Real citizen votes are not counted, and fake ballots are filled in for them.
  • Tens of thousands of real ballots are removed from the counting process and fake ballots are inserted in key counties and states. 
  • Hundreds of thousands of electronic votes are infused in key swing states and counties, using removable storage devices, (vDrives and SD drives) where mail-in ballots alone are insufficient in creating the desired outcome. 

We reported last week on “Emerald Robinson: The Absolute Truth” that in Delaware County, and counties around Pennsylvania, mail-in ballots were sent out without testing the machines that will process them—again. When those mail-in ballots and ballots at targeted polling locations cannot be read—again—they will be stuffed in boxes and bags, ostensibly for curation and remediation—again—and thrown away—again—and fake ballots will be inserted—again. 

Given the callous disregard of election law by local Boards of Elections, your mail-in ballots will quite possibly not be the ones counted—and the votes of anyone who shows up in person may be negated after election day by electronically adding votes to achieve the desired outcome of bad actors. 

Every citizen needs to vote. And if the people charged with processing and counting your votes perform their lawful duties, as we expect many will, then the level of difficulty for stealing the election by a relative handful of bad actors will (hopefully) be too high to overcome. 

We have recommended some fixes that will take a commitment from the citizenry  and the candidates to implement: 

1. All citizens should vote, preferably in person, but by postmarked mail at least several days before the election. 

2. Certified poll watchers and candidate attorneys, by law, can challenge the pedigree and validity of every ballot. They must immediately inspect unsealed election returns on the eve of the election.  

3. Candidates should file immediate lawsuits and seek injunctions to make their respective Boards and Bureaus of Elections comply with the law and cure the Logic and Accuracy testing mess they have made by mailing millions of ballots that have not been tested.  

4. Candidates and their attorneys then need to proactively obtain court orders documenting the mail-in and removable electronic media procedures, and provide them to poll watchers, precinct Judge of Elections, and Counting  Center Clerks of Elections. 

5. Every mail-in ballot envelope must be verified against the voter list—every single one. The ballot that is extracted from that verified envelope must be physically observed—“eyeballs on”—to the scanner that will record the vote. 

6. For USB vDrives and SSD (Solid State Drives) electronic devices that will be inserted in tabulation servers, a “strict chain of custody” required by law, must be enforced. 

7. Candidates should demand, through their attorneys, and the courts, that passive ethernet cable sniffers be deployed to check for any network traffic that is not local, or otherwise anomalous. 

8. Candidates should also consider emergency injunctions and demand that  Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, infrared (IR), and RF sniffers should be placed in all central counting centers, and actively monitored for anomalous activity,  and procedures established if such activity is observed. 

9. For centralized counting centers, which are public locations, poll watchers should be specifically allowed to video anything that does not expose or connect a voter to a ballot.  

10. The 2020 election spawned a new class of “observers,” not defined by any previous election laws or code without any rights. Election law—including litigation like In Re: Canvassing Observations ruled on by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court—restricted the rights of “observers” but left the rights of candidates, candidate attorneys, and the candidate’s certified poll watchers intact. Citizens who want to get involved need to become “certified poll  watchers.” 

11. Good men and women, who have sworn oaths to serve our nation, states,  and communities, as law enforcement officers must put our Republic first,  and enforce the law, or are simply hired guns that serve some local boss. 

Lastly, have faith, have courage, and be brave. Do that for yourselves, your conscience, your humanity, and our Republic.

Lefty Dems Are Interested In Money AND POWER!

October 29, 2022

Have Democrats Lost Interest in the Working Man?

By John F. Di Leo at American Thinker:

We grew up being told that the Democrats were the party of the working man.  

Right or wrong, generations were raised with that belief.  The white collar and gray collar might be either Republican or Democrat – there were always professions that skewed either way – but blue collar?  That was Democrat to the core.

Looking at today’s America, however, it’s hard to see how the American worker – no matter what color collar he or she wears – can see today’s Democratic Party as anything but an enemy.

The Biden-Harris regime began – Day One – with a flurry of executive orders, cancelling the contracts in place for ongoing work on the Keystone XL pipeline.  Most were union construction jobs.  Thousands of workers were thrown out of work on the spot – no notice, no severance – just because the incoming regime’s green agenda didn’t square with the idea of a pipeline moving Canadian fuel southward.  In state after state along the route, materials were left sitting where they were, work unfinished, people fired and forced to move elsewhere to find new jobs.

And speaking of moving elsewhere… also among that flurry of executive orders were cancellations of existing permits for drilling on federal lands. And even more so, the hiring of federal bureaucrats – the top tier in every agency are always political hires – with the orders to slow-walk future permit applications.  Drilling, exploration, R&D, everything in the critical oil and gas sector that requires any federal permit, from drilling on federal lands, to drilling on private lands that require government access or government authorization of any kind, slowed to a crawl instantly. For all intents and purposes, this development just isn’t happening anymore. And that’s why gasoline has more than doubled in price (Illinoisans were paying under $2/gallon in the weeks before the last election and we’re paying over $4.00/gallon in the weeks before this upcoming one).

If you commute to work or school, this crowd has more than doubled your transportation cost.

On the U.S. West Coast, there’s been a growing problem for years; our coastal seaport complexes are too small to handle current volume, and our rail network’s inland hubs are much too small as well.  This isn’t a federal problem; counties and states just need to buy land, and expand to meet the needs.  But the Biden-Harris regime muscled in anyway, trying to force the ports to alleviate congestion by the imposition of late fees – as if the cargo were sitting still, clogging up the place, on purpose!

The biggest problem in the twin ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach is that California’s overwhelmingly Democrat state keeps passing laws that are pushing about half of California’s truckers out of the state for good.  If the Biden-Harris regime wanted to help, it could pressure Sacramento and Los Angeles to cancel their idiotic green rules that ban half the trucks from the ports, and to cancel AB5, the state law designed to make owner-operators give up their businesses and work for somebody else.  

But when given a choice between siding with truck drivers or siding with government bureaucrats, you know who the Biden-Harris crowd chose.

The ILWU is one of the most powerful unions in the world, controlling every port on the West Coast.  Their longshoremen, clerks, and crane operators had their contract up for renewal in June.  The regime made it clear… no strike, no slowdown, nothing, until after the election.  They’ve stayed at the table dutifully; there’s been no strike. Yet.  But in an economy like this, was meddling with their contract negotiation fair to the workers? Again, the Democratic Party had its eyes on November 8, not on the good of the working man.

This same problem is writ that much larger on America’s railroads.  There are a dozen huge railroad worker unions, all of whom negotiate their new contract as a team.  The way they work, all twelve must agree to the contract or they go back to the drawing board; if any strike, the rest strike in solidarity.  The Biden-Harris regime got the union bosses to tentatively accept a flawed contract (sick leave issues, personal leave issues, safety concerns from crew size changes, etc.)… and present it to their members as late as possible.  They didn’t care if it was a good contract, they just wanted to postpone any strike until after the election.  The union bosses accepted the contract, but as the rank and file started voting on it this month, two member unions have already rejected it, probably with more rejections to follow. This sets us up for a potential nationwide rail strike after November 19, just in time for Thanksgiving or Christmas.  The regime’s focus wasn’t on the working man, it was on kicking one more can past November 8.

Then there’s transportation’s effect on all of us.  The aforementioned problem of gasoline prices hitting the working man’s wallet is just a drop in the bucket, compared to what doubling or trebling the diesel fuel price has done to the country. This one issue, more than any other, has driven up the production costs of everything made or sold in America. Transportation costs are the main reason for the massive inflation at retail stores and online – the reason why the price of beef has doubled and the price of eggs has tripled.  Eight percent? Ha.  Maybe on milk and orange juice.  Most of us see much higher grocery inflation.  The policies of today’s Democrats have cost the average American five to ten thousand dollars this year, depending on income level, age and geography.

And that’s not counting retirement plans.  Some 40 or 50 years ago, the blue collar workers had pension plans.  Since the advent of 401Ks, all three collars are more likely to have a personally-driven retirement investment plan, which requires ongoing success in the stock market.  What have the policies of today’s Democrat politicians done to that market? It’s down 15 to 20 percent this year.  And that means that every worker’s 401K is also likely down a fifth. What does this do to real people? It reduces their standard of living in retirement, or adds years of working before they even can retire. But federal politicians get a federal pension; they’re insulated from such market concerns. They’re focused on that reelection.

Inflation is known as “the poor people’s tax;” it’s been the key goal of both parties to keep inflation low for generations.  But today we have the highest inflation rate in over 40 years, admitted to be about 8%, but for most people, it totals something more like 16 to 20%, because one’s personal rate of inflation depends on what one buys.  A person who buys beef is suffering more than a person who buys pork, because beef has gone up much more than pork. A person who must drive to work suffers more than a person who works remote from his basement, or who lives in a big city and takes a bus.  This inflation is crippling, and the deepening recession means people will be that much less able to handle it… but the Biden-Harris regime isn’t interested in solving the problem, just in papering it over so they don’t lose too many votes on November 8.

Perhaps the most telling example of the Democratic Party’s abandonment of what used to be called “the working class” was the transparent effort of this regime to have the federal government illegally absorb a trillion dollars in college student loans this fall.  These are largely people earning six figures per year, a high percentage of them with advanced degrees.  These aren’t the hardworking longshoremen, railroad engineers, and factory assembly line workers who used to form the core of the Democratic Party.  A lot of these college loan defaulters wouldn’t know a lathe, conveyor belt, or arc welder from the background in their video games.  But blue collar workers’ taxes (and their children’s and grandchildren’s taxes) will be paying off the masters degrees and doctorates of these latte-drinking vegans for the next 100 years. 

How easily the Biden-Harris regime threw their old base overboard to take care of their new base.  The greenies and academics, the counter-culturists and bureaucrats. These are the Democratic Party’s base today.  Either they’ve lost all interest in the working man… or they just look on him with scorn.

Maybe it’s time the Democrats give up the color “blue.”  They don’t deserve it anymore.

Battles At The American Public School!


The GOP is strengthening its grip on education. Parents say Democrats are to blame.

Alia Wong, USA TODAY – 

The video starts as many attack ads do: an ominous voice invoking fear. In this case, though, the video doesn’t target any particular candidate but an entire political party: Democrats. And the subject isn’t one that typically induces terror, like crime, but education.

“Kids are back in the classroom, and Democrats? They’re back to their propaganda, pushing woke ideology like gender fluidity, mandating vaccines, enforcing masks on our children,” warns the video, produced and shared on social media by the Republican National Committee in September. Images of Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris fade in and out of view, accompanied by scenes of a teacher reminding her students that gender isn’t binary and another taping a mask to a child’s face.

“Back to school should be driven by parents,” the narrator concludes. “Not Democrat indoctrination.”

Start the day smarter. Get all the news you need in your inbox each morning.

Democrats have long been seen as the country’s “education party,” enjoying most voters’ trust on such issues. But public perceptions have shifted since the onset of the pandemic.

Last year, conservatives secured seats on dozens of school boards across the country on campaigns targeting critical race theory. More could soon join them, with their campaigns now targeting LGBTQ+ lessons, too. One poll this summer of likely voters in 62 congressional battleground districts suggests Republicans now have an advantage over Democrats on education. 

The tide continues to turn in the GOP’s favor as Democrats struggle to mobilize and appeal to voters. And the implications could be vast, including greater privatization of public education, less federal involvement in schools and more restrictions on what students read and learn.

“Parents want a say in their kid’s education, and because Democrats don’t want that, (parents) are walking away,” said Jessica Anderson, the executive director of Heritage Action, a conservative lobbying organization. “There’s a new burst of energy and enthusiasm” for the Republican approach to education.

Parents more engaged, polarized  

Virginia “Ginny” Gentles is a long-time conservative and school choice advocate but that advocacy got especially personal in the summer of 2020, when her children’s public school district in Northern Virginia reneged on a plan to start the fall semester with a hybrid schedule involving just two days a week of in-person learning.

“I had to come up with a completely new plan because I knew it wasn’t going to work for my kids to do remote education,” said Gentles, who now serves as the Independent Women’s Forum’s recently formed Education Freedom Center. Both of Gentles’s daughters have special needs; the district’s teachers, Gentles said, weren’t equipped to teach them in a remote setting. The children now attend faith-based private schools.

In the time since, Gentles said she’s heard from parents throughout her community and the country complain of curriculum that veers too much into social-justice activism, of educators more familiar with “gender ideology” than the science of reading. Yet decision-makers always seemed to brush off the critiques. 

“I have realized in the last couple of years that districts refuse to be responsive to anyone who’s not part of the system, and that (system) includes unions,” Gentles said. “Something needs to be done to wake them up.” 

The pandemic gave parents unprecedented insight into what happens during the school day, forcing many to play a primary, if temporary, role in their kids’ education. And with greater insight came greater scrutiny: A recent Gallup poll found that Americans’ satisfaction with K-12 education is lower than it typically is, with nearly one in four “completely dissatisfied”; another 32% expressed some dissatisfaction. 

Many parents no longer view their role in their kids’ education as temporary, Pew data shows, expressing growing frustration – especially among Republicans – with school boards’ and other governmental officials’ perceived influence over what happens in classrooms.

Conservative strategists hope those frustrations will drive parents to the polls. While issues such as the economy and health care tend to be voters’ top concerns, 83% of voting parents say education has grown in importance for them, according to a Harris Poll conducted in May on behalf of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools. 

The trend, which has been pronounced among Black parents as well as those whose children have special needs, has made parents and others with strong education views a critical voting bloc. Eighty-two percent of parents said they’d be willing to vote for someone outside of their political party if their education platform aligned with their views. 

separate poll from the National Parents Union, released just last week, surveyed registered voters across the country who are also parents of children in K-12 schools. Most respondents – roughly six in 10 – said they are more motivated to vote this year than they were in past midterms, 82% saying they’re highly likely to cast ballots in the upcoming elections. 

“The education voter is the new swing voter,” said the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools’s Nina Rees in a June statement announcing her organization’s poll results. 

The role of the parent vote feels especially high stakes these days amid growing partisanship when it comes to education issues.

Polling data from Education Next, which for years has been surveying parents on education issues, suggests that attitudes toward topics such as charter schools and vouchers increasingly correlate with one’s political party affiliation. (Republicans are far more favorable to such models than Democrats.) New issues, such as mask mandates and critical race theory hysteria, have also contributed to the widening rift, Education Next’s data shows.

“There has always been a feeling that education was something everybody could support, a feeling that schools deserve everybody’s support,” said Paul Peterson, a government professor and education policy scholar at Harvard who serves as senior editor at Education Next. Peterson has been following Americans’ education attitudes for more than 40 years. “We don’t quite have that anymore, and that’s definitely a concern.”

The lack of consensus, however, has created an opportunity for Republicans, who have been more proactive about appealing to parents, tapping into their fears about curriculum and educational quality. 

Democrats, meanwhile, have struggled to resonate with parents, in some cases altogether alienating them. That’s been especially true with their ambivalence on school choice and allegiance with teachers’ unions, whose push for extended closures during the pandemic have made them especially unpopular among conservatives. 

“It was this very potent combination of school closures, mask mandates, (critical race theory), gender ideology,” Gentles said, “and in all of that the theme was: The school district was unresponsive to parents expressing concern.”

Even Democratic strategists have acknowledged the imbalance. “We need to get out of our crouch here,” Guy Molyneux, a pollster at HART Research, told NBC News in July. HART had just released the results of a survey it conducted on behalf of the American Federation of Teachers finding Republicans had a slight advantage over Democrats with regards to voters’ trust on education issues. 

Yes! The Lefties Love To Cause Trouble FOR THEIR REVOLUTIONS!

OCTOBER 28, 2022 BY JOHN HINDERAKER at Power Line:


The Left hungers for racism–of the approved sort–but it is hard to find. Trevor Noah, the host of the Daily Show, went looking for racism in the ascension of Rishi Sunak as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Noah purported to see a “backlash” against Sunak, for which there is zero evidence. To be fair, though, when has a total lack of evidence ever stopped a liberal comedian–isn’t the Daily Show supposed to be comedy?–or newsman?

Noah’s racism-hunting safari did not go over well in Great Britain. The London Times reports:

Rishi Sunak has insisted Britain is not a racist country after a US talk show host claimed there had been a backlash over the country’s first prime minister of colour.

Trevor Noah, 38, who presents The Daily Show, caused anger after a segment from the programme was uploaded to Twitter titled “Unpacking the Backlash to Rishi Sunak”.

In the two-minute 52 second clip, viewed more than one million times, Noah insisted there were “people saying that Indians are going to take over Great Britain” in response to Sunak becoming PM.

Has anyone said any such thing? No.

[H]is comments were questioned by Britons including the former health secretary Sajid Javid, while Sir Trevor Phillips, ex-head of the Commission for Racial Equality, called them “completely wrong”.

That is putting it politely.

Phillips said: “This is basically smugness on steroids. He’s making his audience feel comfortable and superior about a country they know absolutely nothing about.

“This is an audience that likes to think that it – and only it – understands racism and that it is an enlightened elite that can look down on everybody else. That’s who he is playing to.”

“Smugness on steroids” describes American liberalism very well. And ignorance of other countries is more or less universal on the American Left.

Noah claimed that there was a racist backlash against Sunak. But there wasn’t:

He said: “Watching the story of Rishi Sunak becoming England’s first prime minister of colour, of Indian descent, of all these things and then seeing the backlash is one of the more telling things about how people view the role that they or their people have played in history.

“And what I mean by that is this, you hear a lot of the people saying: ‘Oh, they’re taking over, now the Indians are going to take over Great Britain and what’s next?’”

A lot of people? Name one.

Noah failed to mention any examples of a race backlash in Britain, instead namechecking the right-wing Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

He said: “You see people like Tucker Carlson all the time saying ‘You know what they’re trying to do? They won’t stop until black people and women are in positions of power’ … so what?”

Of course, Carlson never said any such thing. How pathetic are American liberals like Trevor Noah? The Brits piled on:

Javid, who was Sunak’s predecessor as chancellor of the exchequer, said Noah was “simply wrong”.

He tweeted: “A narrative catered to his audience, at a cost of being completely detached from reality.

“Britain is the most successful multiracial democracy on earth and proud of this historic achievement.”

“Completely detached from reality” describes our liberals well.

The prime minister’s spokesman said Sunak doesn’t believe Britain is a racist country.

Social media users also questioned Noah’s comments with some accusing him of “projecting” American views of race onto Britain.

Tom Holland, the historian and author, wrote: “As ever, the inability of American liberals to understand the world beyond the US in anything but American terms is a thing of wonder.”

I think these Brits have an outdated concept of American race relations–I am talking about normal Americans, not liberals–but that is another story. For now, let’s just note the absurdity of the Daily Show going prospecting for racism in, of all places, the fact that the son of Indian immigrants is now the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
