As Americans watched the presidential election controversy unfold in November and December of 2020, the very same publications that had spent years lying about President Trump’s “Russia collusion” were once again dictating the narrative that Americans people were dutifully supposed to believe. The Los Angeles Times, for instance, declared that Trump’s “baseless” and “dangerous” claim “that the election was rigged to benefit Joe Biden” had already been thoroughly “debunked.” The New York Times proclaimed that “Trump’s false election fraud claims” were founded upon nothing more than a “torrent of falsehoods.” Sneering at “how Trump drove the lie that the election was stolen,” The Washington Post mocked Republicans who were “still pretending that there was election fraud.” And CNN.com warned that “Trump’s obsession with overturning the election” had begun to spiral “out of control.”
Contrary to the claims of the aforementioned sources, what follows is a compilation of vital facts which demonstrate that the 2020 presidential election was not only rife with fraud, but also with unconstitutional measures by which state election laws were changed during the months and weeks prior to Election Day — changes that were, in every single case, designed to benefit Joe Biden and the Democrats.
Before the Election: How We Got Here
In 2005, a landmark report by the bipartisan Commission on Federal Election Reform, known informally as the Carter-Baker Commission, advised all U.S. states that in order to guarantee free and fair elections, they should: (a) increase voter ID requirements; (b) minimize the use of mail-in ballots, which “remain the largest source of potential voter fraud”; (c) disallow ballot harvesting by third parties; (d) purge voter rolls of all ineligible or fraudulent names; (e) allow election observers to monitor ballot-counting processes without restraint or obstruction; (f) ensure that voting machines are accurate in their tabulations; and (g) encourage news organizations to “delay the release of any exit-poll data until the election has been decided.” All of these recommendations were widely ignored in the elections of November 2020.
During the months leading up to the 2020 presidential race, the Biden campaign assembled a team of some 600 lawyers and more than 10,000 volunteers to “[go] into every single state” in order to “call out local rules that don’t adequately ensure access to vote.”
Toward that end, Democrats, starting in late 2019, filed nearly 300 lawsuits in dozens of states – most notably all of the key battleground states – in an effort to change election laws and regulations in ways that would benefit Democrat candidates. For example, they sought to: (a) extend the statutory deadlines by which mail-in ballots could be submitted, postmarked, or received by election authorities; (b) permit people to vote earlier than ever before — in some cases, as many as 50 days prior to Election Day; (c) eliminate signature, signature-verification, and witness requirements for mail-in ballots; (d) void state laws that disallowed ballot harvesting by third parties; (e) terminate photo-ID requirements for in-person voting; (f) introduce provisions that would allow for the “curing” of mail-in ballots that contained errors or omissions; and (g) require state election officials to send unsolicited mail-in ballots to every person listed as a registered voter, even though such lists have long been notorious for their multitudinous inaccuracies.
Though the Democrats did not get everything that they wanted via their lawsuits, they got most of it. On December 16, 2020, broadcaster and bestselling author Mark Levin, citing the cases of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Arizona — and their combined 73 Electoral College votes – explained what had happened:
“Every one of these states [and others as well] were targeted by Democrats. Every one of these states violated the United States Constitution, Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 [which empowers the state legislatures alone to make election law for each state]. Every one of them, because changes were made to their election systems not by the state legislature, but by other public officials.… That’s 73 Electoral College votes. This is why Donald Trump won the election…. [I]f the federal Constitution had not been violated, yes, Donald Trump would be … president of the United States today. Putting all fraud aside…. This is why you should be furious with the United States Supreme Court, that had as its duty, as its sworn responsibility … to insist that the states comply with the federal Constitution under Article II, Section 1, Clause 2, and that any changes made outside that clause, by governors, secretaries of states, by courts, federal or state, by election boards or other bureaucrats, will be deemed unconstitutional. [The Supreme Court] had a case [in Pennsylvania] … before a single vote was counted, they had a case [alleging unconstitutional changes to election laws] and they didn’t take it up…. [The Democrats] made these changes, they plotted, they planned, they litigated, they pressured, they lobbied, and now we have, if he’s sworn in, Joe Biden, who will be an illegitimate president of the United States in every meaning of that word, ‘illegitimate.’”
On December 30, 2020, Levin expanded on this theme as follows:
“Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the federal Constitution could not be more explicit. It states, in pertinent part: ‘Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress….’ This language was purposeful. During the Constitutional Convention, there were various proposals suggested for electing a president. Should the president be directly elected by the people? That proposal was rejected out of concern that such a purely democratic process could be hijacked by a temporary majority. Should the president be chosen in the first instance from within the national legislature? That proposal was also rejected on grounds of separation of powers. Should the judiciary play a role in the selection of the president? That idea was dispensed with as being the most objectionable, as judges were to be the least political of all public officials. The framers deliberatively and with much thought created the Electoral College process, in which the people and their elected legislatures — both state and national — would play important roles. But the electoral process rested first and foremost on the state legislatures directing how the electors would be chosen. The reason: While rejecting the direct election of a president, the framers concluded that the state legislatures were closest to the people in their respective states and would be the best representatives of their interests. At no time did the framers even raise the possibility that governors, attorneys general, secretaries of state, election boards, administrators, etc., would play any significant role in the electoral process. Indeed, certain of those offices did not even exist. Moreover, as I said, the courts were rejected out of hand. Thus, such an important power was to be exercised exclusively by the state legislatures.
“After the 2016 election, the Democrat Party, its various surrogate groups, and eventually the Biden campaign unleashed hundreds of lawsuits and an unrelenting lobbying campaign in key states that had previously been won by President Trump, taking unconstitutional measures intended to stop President Trump from winning these states in the 2020 election, thereby literally undoing this critical constitutional provision. What had been carefully crafted at the Constitutional Convention and clearly spelled out in the Constitution was the main obstacle to defeating President Trump and winning virtually all future presidential elections. The problem for the Democrats was that in several of these battleground states, the Republicans controlled the legislatures, while the Democrats controlled state executive offices. The Constitution was not on their side. Therefore, they used the two branches [executive and judicial] of government that were to have no role in directing the appointment of electors to eviscerate the role of the Republican legislatures.”
Levin then proceeded to explain specifically how four of the most important battleground states had bowed to Democrat Party pressure and unconstitutionally changed their election laws:
“In Pennsylvania … the Democrat governor, attorney general, and secretary of state made and enforced multiple changes to the state’s voting procedures, all of which were intended to assist the Democrats and Biden. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court, whose seven justices are elected, has a 5-2 Democrat majority. (In 2018, there was a big push by the Democrat Party to fill three of the seats with Democrats, and it succeeded.) Just months before the  general election, that court rewrote the state election laws to eliminate signature requirements or signature matching, eliminate postal markings that were intended to ensure votes were timely, and exten[d] the counting of mail-in ballots to Friday at 5:00 p.m. (state law had a hard date and time — election day on Tuesday, which ended at 8:00 p.m. ET), thereby fundamentally altering Pennsylvania’s election laws and nullifying the federal constitutional role of the Republican legislature.
“In Michigan, among other things, the Democrat secretary of state unilaterally changed the state’s election laws with respect to absentee ballot applications and signature verification. Indeed, she sent unsolicited absentee ballot applications by mail prior to the primary and general elections. State law required would-be voters to request such ballots. She intentionally circumvented the Republican state legislature and violated the federal Constitution by issuing over 7 million unsolicited [ballot applications]. Furthermore, a court of claims judge, appointed by a Democrat, ordered clerks to accept ballots postmarked by Nov. 2 and received within 14 days [after] the election, the deadline for results to be certified. The ballots would be counted as provisional ballots. The state legislature had no role in these changes.
“In Wisconsin, the Elections Commission and local Democrat officials in the state’s largest cities, including Milwaukee and Madison, changed the state’s election laws. Among other things, they placed hundreds of unmanned drop boxes in strategic locations in direct violation of state law. Not surprisingly, the locations were intended to be most convenient to Democrat voters. In addition, they told would-be voters how to avoid security measures like signature verification and photo ID requirements. These bureaucrats and local officials bypassed the Republican legislature in altering state election procedures.
“In Georgia, the secretary of state is a Republican. Regardless,… Georgia’s Secretary of State entered a Compromise Settlement Agreement and Release with the Democratic Party of Georgia to materially change the statutory requirements for reviewing signatures on absentee ballot envelopes to confirm the voter’s identity by making it far more difficult to challenge defective signatures beyond the 22 express mandatory procedures set forth at GA. CODE § 21-2-386(a)(1)(B).71. Among other things, before a ballot could be rejected, the Settlement required a registrar who found a defective signature to now seek a review by two other registrars, and only if a majority of the registrars agreed that the signature was defective could the ballot be rejected but not before all three registrars’ names were written on the ballot envelope along with the reason for the rejection. These cumbersome procedures are in direct conflict with Georgia’s statutory requirements, as is the Settlement’s requirement that notice be provided by telephone (i.e., not in writing) if a telephone number is available. Finally, the Settlement purports to require State election officials to consider issuing guidance and training materials drafted by an expert retained by the Democratic Party of Georgia.’ Georgia’s Republican legislature had no role in these electoral changes resulting from [the] consent decree.
“Consequently, in each of these four battleground states — and there were others — whether through executive fiats or litigation, key, if not core, aspects of state election laws were fundamentally altered in contravention of the explicit power granted to the state legislatures and, therefore, in violation of the federal Constitution and the process set forth for directing the selection of electors. And this is before we even get to the issue of voter fraud. That said, in many instances, ballots that would have been rejected or, if counted, [would have been] evidence of fraud, were now said to be legal — not by state legislatures but by those who unilaterally changed the election laws.
“The United States Supreme Court had an opportunity before the election, and in this general election cycle, to make clear to the states that they must comply with the plain language of Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the Constitution. Indeed, when a federal district judge in Michigan altered that state’s election laws, a closely divided U.S. Supreme Court overturned his order. Justice Gorsuch pointed out that the state legislature writes election laws. However, when a case was brought to the Court involving the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s interference in state election laws, the U.S. Supreme Court was paralyzed…. Its failure to enforce the Constitution … has contributed mightily to our current plight.”
Disseminating Unsolicited Ballots and Ballot Applications
One of the most significant reforms the Democrat operatives advocated in the late summer and fall of 2020 was the use of unsolicited mail-in ballots to a degree that was unprecedented in a presidential race. Such ballots, which are sent to people whose names appear on registered-voter lists that have long been notorious for their many inaccuracies, are highly susceptible to fraud. Four years earlier, in the presidential election of 2016, just three states — Colorado, Oregon, and Washington – held their elections entirely by mail. In 2020, that total increased to 9 states – the original three, plus Utah, Hawaii, California, Vermont, Nevada, and New Jersey, plus also the District of Columbia. These 10 places sent unsolicited ballots to every person whose name appeared in their respective registered-voter lists. In other words, 46 million people received ballots without ever even having requested them.
In addition to the aforementioned 9 states (plus D.C.) that sent out those 46 million unsolicited mail-in ballots, were another 14 states that sent out unsolicited mail-in ballot applications to every person on their respective (and highly inaccurate) registered-voter lists. Those 14 states — Minnesota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Illinois, Delaware, Connecticut, Maryland, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin, Rhode Island, Nebraska, and Massachusetts – accounted for another 48.4 million people. All told, then, some 94.4 million people received either unsolicited mail-in ballots or unsolicited mail-in-ballot applications.
The number of mail-in ballots that were ultimately submitted by voters was about 73 million — an estimate based on a Pew Research report which said that 46% of all (159 million) voters voted via mail-in ballots.
Twenty-Eight States Changed Their Voting Rules to Make It Easier to Vote by Mail
A March 2021 report jointly authored by Nonprofit Vote and the U.S. Elections Project, titled America Goes to the Polls: Policy and Voter Turnout in the 2020 Election, stated that: (a) “28 States changed their policy to make it easier to use a mail ballot,” and (b) “70% of voters voted early with a mail ballot or in-person vs 30% of voters who voted in person on Election Day.” Some additional findings:
“In the top 10 states for their voter turnout, half were states that proactively mailed ballots to all registered voters (a.k.a Vote at Home states).”
“In the top 10 states for increase in voter turnout over 2016, six mailed ballots to all voters for the first time in a presidential election.”
“Eight of the top 10 voter turnout states had Same Day Registration.”
“States with Same Day Registration had an average turnout five percentage points higher than states that did not.”
The FBI and Facebook Collude to Suppress the Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal
During an August 25, 2022 appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg revealed that the FBI had warned Facebook of an imminent “dump” of “Russian propaganda” shortly before the publication of an October 14, 2020 New York Poststory about a massive amount of incriminating material that had recently been found on the laptop computer of Hunter Biden, son of then-presidential candidate Joe Biden. Said the Facebook founder: “The FBI, I think basically came to us — some folks on our team and was like, ‘Hey, um, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert. There was the — we thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on notice that basically there’s about to be some kind of dump of — that’s similar to that. “We just kind of thought, Hey look, if the FBI, which, you know, I still view as a legitimate institution in this country, it’s a very professional law enforcement,” Zuckerberg told Rogan as well. “They come to us and tell us that we need to be on guard about something. Then I wanna take that seriously.” When asked if the FBI had specifically identified the Hunter Biden story as part of the “Russian propaganda” in question, Zuckerberg replied: “No, I don’t remember if it was that specifically, but it [the Biden story] basically fit the pattern.”
Zuckerberg then recounted how Facebook — in contrast to Twitter, which completely blocked users from sharing the Post’s reports about the Biden laptop — instead reduced the story’s distribution, meaning that it appeared on the newsfeeds of fewer Facebook users for a period of approximately five to seven days. While Facebook’s fact-checkers attempted during those days to determine if the story was true, said Zuckerberg, “the ranking in News Feed was a little bit less, so fewer people saw it than would have otherwise.” When Rogan asked Zuckerberg to quantify how much the story’s visibility had been affected, Zuckerberg said he did not know the precise numbers offhand, but acknowledged that the dropoff was “meaningful.”
Pressed by Rogan, Zuckerberg admitted that the Biden story had ultimately proved to be factual. “Yeah. I mean, it sucks,” said Zuckerberg. “I mean, it turned out after the fact, I mean the fact-checkers looked into it, no one was able to say it was false, right. So basically it had this period where it was getting less distribution.”
Zuckerberg’s bombshell admission about how the FBI and Facebook had colluded to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story came during the same week that whistleblowers had revealed that the FBI in October 2020 had forbidden its agents from investigating the Biden laptop until after the November presidential election.
The FBI Forbids Its Agents from Probing the Contents of Hunter Biden’s Laptop Until After the 2020 Election
The leadership of the FBI forbade agents [in October 2020] from investigating Hunter Biden’s laptop until after the [November] 2020 [presidential] election was decided, according to whistleblowers that came forward to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI). The FBI postponed investigating Hunter’s laptop because the agency was “not going to change the outcome of the election again,” the senator [said as he] revealed whistleblowers’ statement on Wednesday [August 24, 2022] in a letter written to Justice Department (DOJ) Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
According to the letter, the whistleblowers said the FBI did not want to investigate the laptop because it was afraid public disclosure would alter the outcome of the 2020 election: “After the FBI obtained the Hunter Biden laptop from the Wilmington, DE computer shop, these whistleblowers stated that local FBI leadership told employees, ‘you will not look at that Hunter Biden laptop’ and that the FBI is ‘not going to change the outcome of the election again.’ Further, these whistleblowers allege that the FBI did not begin to examine the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop until after the 2020 presidential election—potentially a year after the FBI obtained the laptop in December 2019.”
Johnson noted “the FBI cannot be trusted” to investigate Hunter’s laptop and that the FBI’s actions that led to the delay in probing the laptop should itself be investigated. “I call on you to immediately investigate the FBI’s handling of Hunter Biden’s laptop and begin by obtaining the history of the investigative actions taken by the FBI on Hunter Biden’s laptop which should be available on the FBI’s case management system, Sentinel,” Johnson wrote. “This case file should provide valuable information about the steps the FBI took to examine the laptop.”
The FBI’s leadership decision to “undermine” the investigation into the laptop likely impacted the establishment media’s decision to call Hunter’s laptop Russian disinformation during the presidential election. As many as 15 media personalities claimed Hunter’s laptop emails were likely Russian disinformation. Moreover, many media outlets usedPolitico’s now-debunked infamous article that detailed 51 intel officials’ belief the laptop was Russian propaganda. Yet the intel letter Politico reported actually suggested the opposite: “We want to emphasize that we do not know if the emails, provided to the New York Post by President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, are genuine or not and that we do not have evidence of Russian involvement — just that our experience makes us deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case.”
It took CNN 532 days to admit Hunter’s “laptop from hell” was authentic after the initial story broke [in October] 2020 — notably calling it “Russian disinformation” and “made up” at the time. CNN’s former president Jeff Zucker also labeled Hunter’s laptop story as a “Breitbart… rabbit hole” and unworthy of coverage.
The assistant attorney general for the DOJ’s National Security Division, Matthew Olsen, has since confirmed to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) in a congressional hearing the agency is investigating Hunter. According to a CNN report in July, Trump-appointed United States prosecutor David Weiss is deliberating whether Hunter and associates “violated money laundering, campaign finance, tax and foreign lobbying laws, as well as whether Hunter Biden broke federal firearm and other regulations,” multiple CNN sources said.
The Implausibility of Trump’s Loss
While President Trump was granting interviews on a daily basis to friendly and hostile media outlets alike, and was holding campaign rallies that drew tens of thousands of passionate supporters, Joe Biden, for the most part, remained inside his home, rarely even agreeing to give brief video interviews. On the few occasions when Biden did take part in interviews — almost always with fawning, sycophantic questioners — he typically seemed confused, disoriented, incoherent, exhausted, and reliant on a teleprompter or written notes for nearly every remark he made. And when he held his “rallies” or gave speeches, they were invariably awkward, uninspired events mired in pessimistic rhetoric and attended only by tiny handfuls of people. Common sense tells us that no candidate so deeply flawed and so severely limited, could possibly have inspired 15.4 million more people to vote for him, than had voted for Democrat icon Barack Obama in 2012.
Late on Election Night – November 3, 2020 — President Trump led Biden by approximately 112,000 votes in Wisconsin, 293,000 votes in Michigan, 357,000 votes in Georgia, and 555,000 votes in Pennsylvania. Then, highly populous counties in two of those states — Allegheny County in Pennsylvania and Fulton County in Georgia — suddenly suspended their vote counts, almost simultaneously. By the early-morning hours of the following day, Wisconsin had flipped in Biden’s favor, followed by Michigan soon thereafter. A few days later, Georgia and Pennsylvania followed suit as well.
President Trump received more votes than any previous incumbent seeking re-election, and he increased his 2016 vote total by 11 million — the third largest rise ever achieved by an incumbent. By contrast, President Obama had comfortably won re-election in 2012 with 3.5 million fewer votes than he had received in 2008.
Biden in 2020 won the vote in only 16.7% of all counties nationwide, a record low. In raw numbers, Biden won 509 counties, while Trump won 2,547 counties.
According to exit polls, black support for Trump grew by 50% above its 2016 level, while black support for Biden was substantially lower than it had been for other Democrats in recent presidential elections. For example, Biden won 80% of the black male vote, down from Hillary Clinton’s 82% in 2016, Barack Obama’s 87% in 2012, and Obama’s 95% in 2008. Meanwhile, Biden won 91% of the black female vote, down slightly from Hillary Clinton’s 94% in 2016 and Barack Obama’s 96% in both 2012 and 2008.
Trump increased his share of the national Hispanic vote from 29% in 2016, to 35% in 2020.
Trump easily won Florida, Ohio, and Iowa in 2020. Since 1852, the only presidential candidate to lose an election while winning these three states was Richard Nixon in 1960 – an outcome that was likely the result of election fraud by Democrats.
Biden’s purported victory was due entirely to the fact that he seems to have overperformed specifically in the tiny handful of Democrat-run cities that provided him with narrow leads in each of several battleground states, and nowhere else. As TheAmerican Spectator put it: “Biden [won] Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin because of an apparent avalanche of black votes in Detroit, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee. Biden’s ‘winning’ margin was derived almost entirely from such voters in these cities, as coincidentally his black vote spiked only in exactly the locations necessary to secure victory. He did not receive comparable levels of support among comparable demographic groups in comparable states.”
The Washington Examiner noted how strange it was that Trump could have lost the election even though “Republicans won all 27 House races [that] the Cook Political Report rated as ‘toss-ups’ in its 2020 election analysis, in addition to picking up 7 of the 36 seats the outlet rated as ‘likely Democrat’ or ‘lean Democrat.’” Moreover, Democrats were unable to overturn even a single Republican seat in the House. And in New Hampshire, Republicans seized control of the state House and the state Senate, both of which had been in Democrat hands.
Republicans cut the Democrat advantage in the U.S. House of Representatives from 38 seats to just 10 seats, making Trump the only incumbent president in American history to lose his re-election bid while his own party gained seats in the House.
In a December 6 interview with Mark Levin on Fox News, pollster and Democracy Institute founder Patrick Basham said that if Biden was indeed the winner of the presidential election, he had defied key “non-polling metrics” in a way that may be “not statistically impossible, but it’s statistically implausible.” Basham explained that there are “a dozen or more of these metrics … [that historically] have a 100% accuracy rate in terms of predicting the winner of the presidential election,” including “party registration trends, how the candidates did in their respective presidential primaries, the number of individual donations, [and] how much enthusiasm each candidate generated in the opinion poll.” Other notable variables are the candidates’ social media followings, their broadcast and digital media ratings, the number of online searches that their names generate, the number of small donors they have, and the number of individuals who are betting on them to win. “In 2016,” said Basham, “[these metrics] all indicated strongly that Donald Trump would win against most of the public polling. That was again the case in 2020. So if we are to accept that Biden won against the trend of all these non-polling metrics, it not only means that one of these metrics was inaccurate … for the first time ever, it means that each one of these metrics was wrong for the first time and at the same time as all of the others.”
Noting also that “Donald Trump improved his national performance over 2016 by almost 20%,” Basham stated: “No incumbent president has ever lost a reelection bid if he’s increased his [total] votes.”
The scholar and economist John Lott reports the following: “In recent research, I found that while heavily Republican counties had a much higher turnout this election compared to 2016, heavily Democrat counties generally didn’t. The exception was in heavily Democrat counties where vote fraud was alleged to occur. Even after also accounting for county demographics, my estimates indicate 70,000 to 79,000 “excess” votes in Georgia and Pennsylvania. Adding in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin, the total increases to up to 289,000 excess votes.”
In March 2023, conservative columnist Bruce Bawer enumerated a series of highly noteworthy statistical anomalies in the results of the 2020 election:
“[F]or almost sixty years, the winner of the electoral votes from Ohio and Florida has also won the nationwide election – but in 2020, no. Since 1898, any candidate winning those two states plus North Carolina has taken the presidency – but, again, not in 2020. For forty years, nineteen bellwether counties around the country have correctly predicted the ultimate winner of the presidential sweepstakes – and who won eighteen of them in 2020? Trump.
“There’s more. Not in 150 years has a candidate whose vote total jumped as much as Trump’s did from one election to the next ended up losing the election. Never has any incumbent who received over 75 percent of the votes in his party’s primaries (Trump won 94 percent) lost the general election. Rarely has a president lost a re-election bid even as his party picked up seats in the House. Then there’s the blatantly obvious difference in voter enthusiasm between Trump – with his epic campaign rallies – and Biden, whose events sometimes seemed to draw more journalists than voters. Then there’s what is apparently a suspicious variation in turnout rates between otherwise very similar cities: for example, 84 percent in Milwaukee, but only 51 percent in Cincinnati.”
The Slim Margin of Trump’s Loss
The final tally in the Electoral College (EC) was 306 EC votes for Biden, to 232 EC votes for Trump, with 270 being the number required to win the presidency.
The popular vote margins by which Biden allegedly won the three most hotly contested battleground states were as follows:
Collectively, Trump lost these 3 states by a grand total of just 42,918 votes. If he would have won these 3 states, he would have gained their 37 combined EC votes, bringing his total up to 269. Biden, conversely, would have lost 37 EC votes, bringing his total down to 269 as well. In the event of a 269-269 tie, the election would have been decided by the House of Representatives. Even though the Democrats held a majority in terms of total House members, the Republicans held a majority of seats in 26 separate states while the Democrats held a majority of seats in 23 separate states, and 1 state had an equal number of Democrats and Republicans. Each state delegation would have been permitted to cast 1 vote for president, meaning that Trump would have won the election in this scenario.
In short, the presidential election of 2020 was decided by a mere 42,918 out of the 159 million votes that were cast overall, or 0.027 percent of all the votes that were cast.
15 Million Lost Ballots Unaccounted For
In an August 28, 2021 interview, the president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), J. Christian Adams, reported that more than15 million mail-in ballots were unaccounted for in the 2020 presidential election. “This is the worst way to run an election, what they did in 2020,” said Adams. “The Election Assistance Commission, which is a federal agency … puts out a report every two years. … One of the things it has … is the number of mail ballots that were sent out, the number of mail ballots that came back, and the number of mail ballots that were straight-up rejected, meaning the election officials said there was a defect. This is not data that we are speculating about. This is federal data, and that’s where we get the 15 million number. Fifteen million ballots were sent in the mail last year that never ever came back and were counted.” “[S]ome of them,” he added, “we don’t know where they are, they’re just gone. That tells you the system broke down. That tells you that probably ballots came back that were counted for the wrong people. The whole thing is a mess. It can’t be repeated again. And that’s the problem with mail balloting. We’re giving the idiots at the post office control over our government.”
In fact, Adams explained that the actual number of mail-in ballots unaccounted for in 2020 was actually higher than 15 million: “A lot of states didn’t give the data [to the Election Assistance Commission]. … They’re not required to. … This is all voluntary, so a lot of states never reported the number of screwups they made, how many ballots disappeared, how many ballots were rejected that came back in the mail. So the number is per se higher than 15 million.”
Adams then explained that there were three separate categories of ballots that were unaccounted for:
“The ‘unknowns’ are ballots that went out and just vanished. They went into the ether. Now a lot of them are probably laying on apartment floors, such as in Nevada, where we saw pictures of dozens of ballots just laying on the floor of apartment complexes in the lobby. They eventually got thrown away because the people don’t live there anymore. Others probably didn’t get voted. There’s going to be some that the people got them and just decided not to vote. We’ll grant that. But a lot of them probably ended up in the sewer, in the garbage, just laying around for people to pick up. That’s the ‘unknown’ category.”
“The [‘undeliverable’] bouncebacks are more troubling because it means the voter rolls are a mess. The [undeliverable] bouncebacks are ballots that were mailed out to somebody who’s supposed to be an active voter, and they bounced back to the election office that the voter doesn’t live there anymore, which means the voter rolls are a mess, and it also means you probably are sending them, some get through, they never bounce back, and they go to the wrong people.”
“The last category … is the ‘rejected,’ and this is a troubling one because when you go to vote in person … and you screw up, they can give you a new ballot right there. When you go to vote by mail, you don’t. And that’s what the rejected ballots are. Somebody made a mistake on the ballot, and they got it back, and it got rejected. And that means that voter was disenfranchised. And I can tell you that I can guarantee there was a larger rejection rate among the elderly, which are Trump voters, than there were f0r 0ther ballots. So that’s the ‘rejected’ ballot.”
Added Adams: “There is no question it did affect the presidential race. The only question is how much. We know that tens of thousands of ballots were rejected. They were rejected [cast] by people who made some kind of small mistake. In a place like Wisconsin, there were more of these ballots that screwed up than the margin of error [the margin of Biden’s victory], by like four-fold…. What that tells us is the system is screwed up, that it broke down.”
Adams further stated: “There was random chance, chaos. All of these characteristics got cranked into the election last year because of mail balloting. It was screwed up, I think, deliberately. This was a plan that was cooked up by [Mark] Zuckerberg and Vanita Gupta, who’s now the associate attorney general, who was a radical left-wing organizer, and a whole bunch of union people. Mail balloting was a plan that was cooked up. Soros money flowed into the Vote at Home foundation. There was all sorts of money that was moving to advocate for this corrupted system in February, March, April, May . And then, there was court litigation to force us into this corrupted system. It’s no accident that 15 million mistakes were made.”
Adams was then asked, “How do you fix this so it doesn’t happen again?” He replied: “Remember this name–Amber McReynolds. Amber McReynolds is the head of the National Vote at Home Institute, a Soros-funded group that pushed us to mail balloting, and was all in favor of mail balloting, a central figure in doing this. After the election, she was just appointed–get this–to the United States Post Office Board of Governors. So now, she’s on the inside of the government to advocate this. The Justice Department has issued official DOJ guidance that is warning states that if they go back to the pre-COVID procedures–meaning not mistake-filled mail–it is not presumed to be okay…. Any state that tries to go back to pre-COVID is possibly going to invite a DOJ lawsuit.”
“The fact of untracked, nearly 15 million ballots triggers an unavoidable cascade of serious, fundamental, deeply troubling questions. Such as, how many of those were voted by unintended recipients? This can’t be known. Another obvious question is, how many people failed to vote because their ballots went astray? This too can’t be known. Another question is why are the voter rolls so inaccurate that wrong addresses are so common?
“Places like Pennsylvania had to be sued to be forced into correcting them. Another question is why do so many election officials not care?
“To put that 15 million figure in perspective, consider this in Pennsylvania 440,000 mail ballots went missing or were undeliverable in the 2020 election. President Biden won the state by only 81,000 votes.
“Pennsylvania is not the only battleground state that lost more ballots than the difference between winning and losing its Electoral College votes.
“In Wisconsin, 83,000 mail ballots went missing or were undeliverable. President Biden won the state by only 20,000 votes.
“ In Georgia, 244,000 ballots went missing or were undeliverable. President Biden won the state by only 11,000 votes.
“When states lose track of more ballots than the difference between winning and losing its Electoral College votes, that is a core system failure. It means that a genuine accurate count is impossible. We just close our eyes and cross our fingers and hope the margins are big enough to not call into question the outcome of an election. Mass mail balloting with inaccurate voter rolls leads to chaos. That is exactly what we saw in 2020.”
A State-by-State Analysis
Below is an overview of what occurred not only in Arizona, Georgia, and Wisconsin, but also in 3 other key battleground states: Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Nevada.
296,589 of the state’s 2,471,577 mail-in ballots — or about 12% — needed adjudication — a process whereby a small panel of people review questionable ballots to determine either the voters’ intent or whether the ballots are even eligible to be counted.
36,400 illegal aliens voted.
22,903 completed mail-in ballots were marked as having been received by election authorities the day before they had even been mailed out to the voters.
Some 2,000 ballots were cast by voters whose stated address matched that of a vacant lot.
Approximately 150,000 voters in Maricopa County registered after the registration deadline.
About 103,000 ballots in Maricopa County were adjudicated without any Republican poll observers present.
Some 50,000 votes were loaded into the ballot tallies before the polls had even opened on Election Day.
At least 19,997 people used mail-in ballots to vote illegally in Arizona after they had moved out of the state.
Bobby Piton — a managing partner of Pre-Active Investments, LLC and an investment advisor representative of Total Clarity Wealth Management — used Arizona’s official government data to analyze the results of the presidential voting in Arizona. After conducting his analysis, he concluded in December 2020 that the “biggest fraud in the history of our constitutional republic is taking place right before our eyes.” He stated that between 120,000 and 306,000 fake people in Arizona had voted in the election. “I would have never ever have certified [the election results],” he said. “I would rather resign than have certified those results. If I was an executive at a publicly traded company, I would never sign that because I risk jail time and having all my money taken from me in lawsuits.” Added Piton: “I believe [the numbers] are fraudulent based on the data… I’d be willing to put my life on it, I’m that sure about the analysis.”
In July 2021, the company CyberNinjas, which was conducting a forensic audit of the November 2020 election results in Maricopa County, told Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann that the audit had been unable to find “no clear record” of 74,243 mail-in ballots having been sent to actual voters, even though those ballots were eventually counted in the final vote tallies. Said CyberNinjas CEO Doug Logan: “We have 74,243 mail-in ballots where there is no clear record of them being sent. Just to be clear, here in the state of Arizona there is EV 32s and EV 33s. EV 32s are supposed to give a record of when a mail-in ballot is sent. EV 33 is supposed to give a record of when the mail in ballot is received. There should be more EV 32s, more sent out, than there are that are received. Specifically, with these, we can tie them to a specific individual that it was mailed to. So we have 74,000 where we have them came back from individuals where we don’t have a clear indication that they were ever sent out to them. That could be a something where documentation wasn’t done right. There’s a clerical issue. There’s not proper things there, but I think when we’ve got 74,000, it merits knocking on a door and validating some of this information.”
On September 24, 2021, PJ Media reported on the contents of a draft copy of a recently conducted audit of the 2020 election results in Maricopa County. “What has been found is both encouraging and alarming,” said the report summary. “On the positive side there were no substantial differences between the hand count of the ballots provided and the official canvass results for the County.” But the summary added:
However, while it is encouraging for voters, it does not allay all of the concerns:
None of the various systems related to elections had numbers that would balance and agree with each other. In some cases, these differences were significant.
There appears to be many ballots cast from individuals who had moved prior to the election.
Files were missing from the Election Management System (EMS) Server.
Ballot images on the EMS were corrupt or missing.
Logs appeared to be intentionally rolled over, and all the data in the database related to the 2020 General Election had been fully cleared.
On the ballot side, batches were not always clearly delineated, duplicated ballots were missing the required serial numbers, originals were duplicated more than once, and the Auditors were never provided Chain‐of‐Custody documentation for the ballots for the time‐period prior to the ballot’s movement into the Auditors’ care. This all increased the complexity and difficulty in properly auditing the results; and added ambiguity into the final conclusions.
“The audit team faults Maricopa County officials for not cooperating with the audit, which would have resolved many of these obstacles. ‘By the County withholding subpoena items, their unwillingness to answer questions as is normal between auditor and auditee, and in some cases actively interfering with audit research, the County prevented a complete audit,’ the summary explains. ‘This did not stop the primary goal of offering recommendations for legislative reform to the Arizona Senate, but it did leave many questions open as to the way and manner that the 2020 General Election was conducted. As a result, while many areas of concern were specifically identified, our full audit results validating the 2020 General Election are necessarily inconclusive.’
“While the media is claiming that the audit report confirms Biden’s victory, it does not. ‘There are sufficient discrepancies among the different systems that, in conjunction with some of our findings, suggest that the delta between the Presidential candidates is very close to the potential margin‐of‐error for the election,’ the audit summary explains.
“Here is a table showing the discrepancies and other issues found by the audit team and the number of ballots impacted. However, the audit team notes that no single finding would necessarily favor a single candidate. ‘In many cases there could be legitimate and legal votes within the Ballots Impact amount.’
“Why do these matter? Because, according to the state-certified results, Joe Biden barely won the state by a 10,457-vote margin. The tiny margin of victory in the state-certified results means that these discrepancies are very troubling. There were 42,727 impacted ballots ranked as “high” or “critical” severity—that’s four times the certified margin of victory. If you include “medium” severity discrepancies, there were 53,214 impacted ballots—more than five times the certified margin of victory. Overall, there were C:RC)”>57,734 impacted ballots.
“These findings don’t prove fraud, but certainly demonstrate the potential for fraud. And these impacted ballots have not been vetted.
“So, has Joe Biden’s victory been proven? Not in the least. The truth is, we’ll never know the truth about how many ballots were impacted…. The bottom line: The number of ballots impacted by discrepancies far exceeds Biden’s margin of victory in the state.”
In March 2023, conservative columnist Bruce Bawer — after having studied the contents of author Joseph Fried’s 2022 book Debunked? An Auditor Reviews the 2020 Election — summarized some notable election anomalies that had occurred in the 2020 presidential election in Arizona:
“In the Grand Canyon State, the focus of observer skepticism was Maricopa County (Phoenix and environs), by far the state’s largest county. Election observers reported that many signatures on ballots were not checked, and that the signatures on many ballots were written in the same hand. A pattern recognition expert found that 97 percent of the signatures on Maricopa ballots received before Election Day were legible, but only 3 percent of those received afterward were – a detail from which one might reasonably surmise that the latter signatures had been forged by ballot harvesters who were rushing against the clock. Shiva Ayyadurai, an engineer and entrepreneur who’s known as Dr. Shiva, uncovered a widespread failure in Maricopa to reject ballots with bad or no signatures. Last year, a study by Dr. Shiva, commissioned by the Arizona Senate, showed that up to 204,000 Maricopa ballots bore fake signatures.
“After Election Day – when Arizona was awarded to Biden, with a reported tally of 1.67 million to Trump’s 1.66 million (four years earlier, Trump had won the state with 1.25 million votes to Hillary Clinton’s 1.16 million) – the State Senate ordered an audit of Maricopa. The county promptly sued to block it and conducted a “self-audit,” a concept that Fried dismisses as ‘ridiculous.’ When the Senate’s audit finally did get underway, Maricopa election officials and the county’s Soros-funded sheriff tried to squash it – refusing to cooperate with the auditors, denying them access to routers, and blocking their attempts to verify signatures. Attorney General Merrick Garland and Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs joined in this effort, while Democrats on Capitol Hill and in the Department of Justice complained that the auditors’ attempt to investigate charges of ballot harvesting amounted to ‘voter intimidation’ and Members of Congress Carol Maloney (D-NY) and Jamie Raskin (D-MD) accused the auditors of embracing ‘conspiracy theories.’ This full court press worked: the audit was abandoned (Fried calls the whole thing ‘disgraceful’) and the mainstream media dutifully reported that the auditors had certified Biden’s win.”
What Happened in Georgia
In Georgia, where Biden’s margin of victory was less than 11,779 votes, illegal ballots were cast by, or in the name of: (a) more than 2,500 felons; (b) 66,247 underage voters; (c) 2,423 unregistered voters; (d) 4,926 individuals who had failed to register prior to the state’s voter-registration deadline; (e) 395 individuals who voted in Georgia and one additional state; (f) 40,279 people who had moved across county lines in Georgia without re-registering in their new county of residence; (g) 30,000 to 40,000 people whose absentee ballots lacked a valid, verifiable signature; (h) 20,311 voters who had moved out of state and thus were no longer eligible to vote in Georgia; (i) 10,315 people who were dead; and (j) at least 1,043 individuals whose voter registrations claimed postal facilities as their home address and disguised their box numbers as “apartment” numbers. Almost all of the people in this latter category were absentee voters who cast their ballots early.
More than 300,000 Georgia residents who, in violation of state law, had applied for absentee ballots more than 180 days prior to the Election Day, were permitted to vote.
Some 10,000 mail-in ballots were accepted up to 3 days after Election Day.
Nine individuals at various recount sites in Georgia issued sworn affidavits stating that they had seen large numbers of uncreased mail-in ballots – meaning that the ballots had not been folded and mailed in an envelope as required by law — almost all cast for Biden. As longtime poll manager Susan Voyles wrote in her affidavit: “It was pristine. There was a difference in the texture of the paper … There were no markings on the ballots to show where they had come from, or where they had been processed. I observed that the markings for the candidates on these ballots were unusually uniform, perhaps even with a ballot marking device. By my estimate in observing these ballots, approximately 98% constituted votes for Joseph Biden.”
Trial lawyer Carlos Silva, who was a Republican poll challenger on Election Day, said in an affidavit that he saw DeKalb County election officials pull out many hundreds of ballots, all of which had an unusually perfectly formed black circle, or bubble, filled in for Joe Biden. “I was able to observe the perfect bubble for a few minutes before they made me move away from the table,” he said. “At no time did I speak to the poll workers or obstruct them in any way. I heard them go through the stack and call out Biden’s name over 500 times in a row.”
At least 96,600 absentee ballots in Georgia were requested and counted but were never recorded as having been returned by the voter to county election boards.
In a major Fulton County, Georgia polling place — the State Farm Arena — surveillance cameras captured perhaps the most graphic video evidence of election fraud ever recorded. At about 10:30 PM on Election Night, poll workers and election observers were told that because of a water-main break inside the building, they were to go home for the night and not return until 8:30 the following morning, at which time all vote-counting – which was purportedly being suspended for the overnight hours — would resume. By approximately 10:50 p.m., everyone had left the facility except four Democrat poll workers who stayed behind. As soon as everyone else had gone home, these four individuals promptly pulled four large, wheeled cases out from under a long table whose floor-length black tablecloth had theretofore concealed them. The cases were filled with approximately 6,000 ballots apiece, and the four remaining poll workers proceeded to count them until about 1:00 a.m. – with no Republican observers on hand. Moreover, it was later confirmed that there had not been any water-main break in the building; that was a concocted excuse designed to create a pretext for removing non-Democrat poll workers.
A vote update in Georgia at 1:34 AM on November 4 added 136,155 votes for Biden and 29,115 votes for Trump.
On December 30, 2020, Lynda McLaughlin from the Data Integrity Group, along with data scientists Justin Mealey and Dave Lobue, presented vital data to the Georgia Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Elections. Mealey was an electronic warfare technician in the U.S. Navy for nearly 10 years and was a former CIA contractor as a data analyst and programmer for the National Counterterrorism Center, while Lobue has spent more than a decade as a data scientist in several different industries. According to the McLaughlin-Mealey-Lobue analysis, at least 30,593 votes were removed from Trump’s total as result of this fraud, including 17,650 votes in Dougherty County, 7,008 votes in Dodge County, and 5,935 votes in Putnam County. As The Epoch Times explains: “The removals happened at the county level and were hard to observe at the state level because the decrements were offset by accurate data uploaded by other counties.” “I want to make … very, very clear that at no point in an incremental process, should you decrement it,” said Mealey, vis-à-vis the fact that Trump’s official vote total actually decreased at a certain point. “What we have here is we actually have fraud that we can prove in this election, there was fraud in Georgia’s election, we can prove it with data,” Mealey added. “The voting will of the people of Georgia is not reflected in what was certified by the Secretary of State.”
A “clear example of vote switching” occurred in Bibb county, Georgia, said the McLaughlin-Mealey-Lobue research team. At 9:11 p.m. on Election Night, Trump received 29,391 votes as Biden simultaneously received 17,218. But in the very next reported time update, those numbers were switched, meaning that Biden suddenly turned a 12,173-vote deficit into an advantage of the same size.
According to Real Clear Investigations journalist Paul Sperry: “In the early hours of Nov. 5, a surge of some 20,000 mail-in votes suddenly appeared for Joe Biden, while approximately 1,000 votes for President Trump mysteriously disappeared from his own totals in the critical swing state [of Georgia].”
Cobb County election observer Debbie Fisher told a Georgia legislature hearing that while she served as part of the voter review for a November 16 hand recount of votes, she noticed something highly unusual about the military ballots that had been cast in the county. Fisher stated that on that day, somewhere between 80 and 90 percent of the 298 military ballots that she reviewed were for Biden. Because that particular section of Cobb County has traditionally been heavily Republican, Fisher said that “throughout the day, it made me sicker to see” all those votes going for Biden, adding: “I find that statistically impossible.”
Data expert Edward Solomon analyzed the 2020 election results in Georgia and found that approximately 200,000 votes had been transferred from Trump to Biden at the precinct level.
On December 30, 2020, Digital ID systems inventor Jovan Pulitzer testified before the Georgia Senate Judiciary subcommittee on Elections and announced that his team of technicians had been able — at that very moment in time — to hack into the Dominion Voting Machines that were being used — also at that very moment in time — in the two Georgia run-off elections that would determine which party would have a majority in the U.S. Senate. This proved, said Pulitzer, that the Dominion machines were indeed connected to the Internet and thus could be manipulated by external actors — something that Dominion and Georgia state election officials had theretofore denied vehemently.
During the same Georgia Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing, Pulitzer explained that, by means of highly sophisticated technology, he could examine the paper ballots that had been cast in Fulton County, Georgia, and determine immediately which ones were fraudulent and which ones were not. He could easily examine 500,000 such ballots in just two hours, Jovan added. Following the hearing, the subcommittee unanimously passed a motion to audit Fulton County’s absentee ballots by means of the procedure that Pulitzer had outlined during the hearing. The very next day, December 31, Pulitzer told radio host Monica Matthews that almost immediately after he had been tasked with auditing the Fulton County ballots, trucks pulled up to the facility where the ballots were being held, and the ballots were loaded into those vehicles and shredded. Said Pulitzer: “The very minute that order went through and that order was followed, and all the legal notices were done, it didn’t even take four hours later where moving trucks with this stuff was [sic] backed up to those buildings trying to get rid of the evidence.”
On July 9, 2021, Margot Cleveland reported in The Federalist:
“In Georgia, there was both an audit and a statewide recount confirming Biden’s victory, but ignored in the process was evidence that nearly 35,000 Georgians had potentially voted illegally. Under Georgia law, residents must vote in the county in which they reside, unless they changed their residence within 30 days of the election. As Jake Evans, a well-known Atlanta election lawyer, told me, outside of the 30-day grace period, if people vote in a county in which they no longer reside, ‘Their vote in that county would be illegal.’
“Soon after the November general election, Mark Davis, the president of Data Productions Inc. and an expert in voter data analytics and residency issues, obtained data from the National Change of Address (NCOA) database that identified Georgia residents who had confirmed moves with the U.S. Postal Service. After excluding moves with effective dates within 30 days of the general election, and by using data available from the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office, Davis identified nearly 35,000 Georgia voters who indicated they had moved from one Georgia county to another, but then voted in the 2020 general election in the county from which they had moved.”
On July 15, 2021, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger — after learning that elections officials in Fulton County had scanned approximately 200 ballots twice when counting votes during the 2020 presidential election — called for the immediate firing of Fulton County Elections Director Rick Barron and Registration Chief Ralph Jones. Tweeted Raffensperger: “Fulton County’s continued failures have gone on long enough with no accountability. Rick Barron and Ralph Jones … must be fired and removed from Fulton’s elections leadership immediately. Fulton’s voters and the people of Georgia deserve better.”
On July 14, 2021, Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson presented newly acquired information about apparent corruption that had infected the 2020 elections in Georgia. Some excerpts from Carlson’s presentation:
“On a Saturday night in late May of this year, an alarm sounded in a big nondescript warehouse in Fulton County, Georgia. The warehouse was an unlikely place for a burglary. It was under round-the-clock surveillance by both private security and local law enforcement including armed deputies with the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office. Any unauthorized person entering from the outside would have to get past a locked 100-pound steel door, as well as a maze of motion detectors — not easy — but someone tried to do it, anyway and at just the perfect moment, 20 minutes after the deputies in charge of guarding the warehouse left their posts. By the time those deputies returned to check out the alarm, someone had opened the 100-pound door to the warehouse. So, what happened that night? And why? We still don’t know. It’s also not clear why the deputies left the warehouse or who took advantage of their absence? We do know that a lot of people might have had reason to try to get inside the warehouse. […] That warehouse holds more than 140,000 absentee ballots. Now, what’s interesting is that for reasons that are difficult to understand, Fulton County officials have refused to let the public see any of these ballots. An attorney called Bob Cheeley has been pushing for transparency. He has filed suit for the right to see those ballots. He hasn’t seen them all yet, but what he has found so far demands an explanation.”
“In May, the Chairman of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, a man called Robb Pitts, explained that it was not necessary to look at the ballots, in fact it was ridiculous even to ask to look at the ballots because there had already been plenty of recounts and all the recounts reached the same conclusion. Here is what Pitts said — and if it sounds familiar as you hear it, that’s because so many other people in authority have been saying pretty much the same thing. [VIDEO CLIP OF PITTS]: ‘I mean, I’m really baffled about this. What do they want? We’ve had three counts already. The elections in Fulton County, Georgia, they were open, they were fair, and they were transparent. The votes have been certified. The election has been certified, so it’s over. This will be the fourth one, and I can guarantee you that the results will be — of this one will be just like the results were for count one, count two, and count three. No change. Again, our elections are open, fair, and transparent.’”
“And that’s the argument that Fulton County has used in court to keep those ballots locked away in a warehouse, except it’s not true. It now appears there actually was meaningful voter fraud in Fulton County, Georgia last November. […] So here’s what we know tonight, factually. At least 36 batches of mail-in ballots from the November election were double counted in Fulton County. That’s a total of more than 4,000 votes. Those numbers come from a group called Voter GA which along with Bob Cheeley sued to get them. The final tally from the double counts we know about amounts to more than 3,300 votes for Joe Biden and 865 votes for Donald Trump.”
“So, what’s the explanation for this? Well, if you ask Fulton County, these discrepancies, the ones [surveillance video clips] you just saw on the [TV] screen were isolated incidents, just a handful of bad ballots. It happens all the time. The county claims that any errors were caught in previous recounts. The problem is that neither one of those claims is true. Surveillance footage obtained by Voter GA appears to show large numbers of ballots being scanned multiple times. […] The question is, how many times were those ballots counted? Was each vote counted more than once? Fulton County won’t answer that question. Now, one way to know the answer would be to check what are called audit tally sheets. Tellingly for months after the presidential election, Fulton County failed to provide more than a hundred thousand of those tally sheets including 50,000 of them for mail-in ballots.”
“When Voter GA finally forced Fulton County to turn over the tally sheets, the conclusion was stunning. Here’s what the audit found, quote: ‘Seven falsified audit tally sheets containing fabricated vote totals. For example, a batch containing 59 actual ballot images for Joe Biden and 42 for Donald Trump was reported as a hundred for Biden and zero for Trump. The seven batches of ballot images with 554 votes for Joe Biden, 140 votes for Donald Trump and 11 votes for Joe Jorgensen had tally sheets in the audit falsified to show 850 votes for Biden, zero votes for Trump, and zero votes for Jorgensen.’”
“We’ve obtained photographs showing what went on during the recount process for mail-in ballots in Fulton County. These pictures were taken by a whistleblower who participated in the recount. She said she noticed something odd as she did. None of the ballots that she saw had any creases on them. You can see the stacks of unfolded ballots on your screen now. That’s strange because of course mail-in ballots need to be bent in order to be mailed in. These ballots clearly had never been inside an envelope. And then the whistleblower noticed something else, all of the ballots, the whistleblower tells us, have been filled out by a printer, not by hand and many of them supported the exact same candidates — Democrats including Joe Biden.”
“Voter GA detected a series of other apparent irregularities in the recount. The group’s audit found, for example, that, quote: ‘Over 200 Fulton County mail-in ballot images contained votes that were not included in the hand count audit results for the November election.’ Now, why is that? We don’t know.”
“And then there’s this. An elections expert called Mark Davis analyzed data from the Post Office. He found that nearly 35,000 Georgia voters moved out of their county of residence more than a month prior to Election Day. They were ineligible to vote, and yet they did. They still voted in their old county. That is illegal. It’s not a small thing, violating election law is something we should care about. And by law, their vote should have been excluded from the total, but they were not excluded.”
In March 2023, conservative columnist Bruce Bawer — after having studied the contents of author Joseph Fried’s 2022 book Debunked? An Auditor Reviews the 2020 Election — summarized some notable election anomalies that had occurred in the 2020 presidential election in Georgia:
“Trump, who in 2016 won Georgia with 2.09 million votes to Hillary Clinton’s 1.88, was named the loser in 2020, with an official total of 2.46 million votes to Biden’s 2.47 million. At a post-election press conference, Garland Favorito, an expert in information technology who is the president of VoterGA.org, presented the sensational results of his study of the Fulton County (Atlanta) results. ‘It takes at least one second to scan a ballot,’ said Favorito, ‘but there are over 4,000 ballots with precisely the same timestamp – to the second.’ Favorito identified over half a million ‘phony or unauthenticated ballots’ – a figure 45 times the size of Biden’s margin in Fulton. A video showed that after ballot counters had been sent home from the State Farm Arena, workers pulled boxes out from under tables and took out ballots, which were then scanned, apparently several times apiece, over the next hour and a half, resulting in a huge jump in Biden votes. Several observers signed affidavits attesting to having witnessed this bizarre occurrence.
“But county DA Fani Willis showed no interest in Favorito’s findings. Instead, she was ‘trying to prosecute Trump’ for ‘pressuring’ Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to, as Trump put it, ‘find votes.’ Willis’s implication was that Trump wanted somebody to fabricate votes for him; in fact, the actual phone call transcript shows that he was aware of, or strongly suspected, widespread fraud and wanted it uncovered. But Raffensperger, rather than cooperate with this effort, bad-mouthed Trump to the Washington Post; and though he’d been shown evidence of massive fraud – a contractor hired by his own office had reported monumental failures in election integrity, including a ‘massive chain of custody problem’ – Raffensperger bragged on 60 Minutes about Georgia’s ‘honest’ election. To compel a response to his charges by election officials, Favorito filed a lawsuit – but Raffensperger, in an amicus brief, argued, ludicrously, that election results are final, and a judge dismissed the case on the grounds that Favorito had no legal standing.”
Illegal Exploitation of Drop Boxes by Ballot Harvesters in the Atlanta Metro Area
On November 30, 2021, the election-integrity organization True The Vote (TTV) sent a letter to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger containing evidence of massive, illegal exploitation of ballot drop-boxes by ballot harvesters in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Below are some key excerpts from the letter:
Following a detailed account of coordinated efforts to collect and deposit ballots in drop boxes across metro Atlanta, True the Vote obtained publicly available surveillance video as well as commercially available cell phone data which revealed concerning patterns of behavior consistent with the reports made to our organization.
In addition to ordering surveillance video, True the Vote also purchased commercially available, anonymized, geospatial mobile device information. This cell phone data establishes what devices were at a particular location at a particular time but does not disclose any private information about a person’s identity.
Acting upon information provided to us, True the Vote’s contracted team of researchers and investigators spoke with several individuals regarding personal knowledge, methods, and organizations involved in ballot trafficking in Georgia. One such individual, hereinafter referred to as John Doe, admitted to personally participating and provided specific information about the ballot trafficking process. This information was provided under agreement of anonymity.
John Doe described a network of non-governmental organizations (“NGO”s) that worked together to facilitate a ballot trafficking scheme in Georgia. John Doe claimed to have been one of many individuals paid to collect and deliver absentee ballots during the early voting periods of the November 2020 General Election and the January 2021 Runoff Election.
John Doe’s assignment included collecting ballots, both from voters in targeted neighborhoods and from NGOs that had their own ballot collection processes, delivering those ballots to other NGOs, picking up designated ballot bundles from the same group of NGOs, and depositing ballots into drop boxes spanning six counties in the metro Atlanta area. Each drop box delivery would typically include between 5 to 20 ballots. John Doe described a payment validation process which involved taking cell phone pictures of the drop box where ballots were deposited. Participants were compensated, typically at a rate of $10 per ballot. John Doe stated he had been paid directly by one of these NGOs.
[I]n our initial review of the available 3 million minutes of surveillance video, we found compelling evidence to support the reports of absentee ballot trafficking conducted during the November 3, 2020, General Election and January 5, 2021, Runoff Election periods.
After reviewing this data, True the Vote was able to confirm certain patterns of activity around absentee ballot drop boxes, as initially reported by John Doe. During the Runoff Election period, in six counties in and around Atlanta, 552,987 cell phones came within a narrowly defined distance of ballot drop boxes during our study period. However, 242 unique devices made repeat trips to drop boxes averaging 23 trips each. These same 242 devices also went repeatedly, averaging eight trips each, to specific NGOs. These 242 individual devices went to drop boxes a total of 5,668 times with approximately 40% of the visits occurring between the unusual hours of 12:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m.
The video, though often grainy and sometimes distant, revealed numerous unusual behaviors. Individuals were observed attempting to deposit multiple ballots into the drop box. Sometimes, the person was attempting to deposit so many ballots that they were unable to fit them all in and the video shows ballots falling to the ground.
Cars were observed with out-of-state license plates, including rental cars identifiable because of the sticker seal rental car companies affix to the driver’s side door. This in itself is not necessarily problematic; however it is notable because these out of state and rental cars were driven by individuals who were also in our targeted study group of 242 devices.
Consistent with John Doe’s report regarding the proof necessary to receive payment, individuals were observed taking cell phone photos, not of themselves, but of their ballot deposits or of the drop box after the ballots had been deposited.
Curiously, a change in behavior seemed to occur on or around December 23, 2020, the day after Arizona authorities announced that fingerprints on absentee ballot envelopes helped uncover an illegal ballot harvesting scheme in that state. After that announcement, individuals depositing ballots into drop boxes in Georgia are seen wearing blue surgical gloves. They often put them on just before picking up their stack of ballots and remove them as they exit the drop box area.
In the data we reviewed, the 242 mobile devices which repeatedly visited drop boxes also repeatedly visited locations associated with a select group of NGOs. Not only did these devices make repeat visits but a significant number of these visits, approximately 40%, were made during extremely unusual hours in the middle of the night. Additionally, surveillance footage shows numerous instances in which individuals deposited multiple ballots at a time – a practice which is prohibited under Georgia law except under very limited circumstances.
Nearly 44,000 Chain-of-Custody Forms for Absentee-Ballots Had Incomplete or Late Information
On August 31, 2021, the Georgia Star Newspublished an analysis stating that ballot transfer forms for 43,907 absentee ballots out of 61,731 absentee ballots cast via drop-box in DeKalb County, Georgia — which Biden won by a margin of 83% to 16%, or 249,854 votes — were either incomplete or had not been filled out in a timely manner. As Breitbart.com explained:
“Counties in Georgia were required, per an emergency rule passed by the State Election Board last spring and renewed in July 2020, to fill out ballot transfer forms, which are chain of custody documents meant to accompany every batch of absentee ballots picked up at drop boxes. A ballot collection team ‘shall complete and sign a ballot transfer form upon removing the ballots from the drop box, which shall include the date, time, location and number of ballots,’ the rule states.
“The ballots from the drop box shall be immediately transported to the county registrar and processed and stored in the same manner as absentee ballots returned by mail are processed and stored,’ the rule continues [emphasis added]. ‘The county registrar or a designee thereof shall sign the ballot transfer form upon receipt of the ballots from the collection team.’ […]
“The Star News analysis … found that transfer forms for 28,194 of the 43,907 absentee ballots in question did not show ballots were ‘received’ by the county registrar until the day after the collection team had picked them up from the drop boxes. Those ballots, according to the transfer forms, were not surrendered to the county registrar until 13 to 22 hours after they had been picked up. Another 15,713 absentee ballots had no documented ‘time of transfer,’ i.e, the time the county registrar received them, per the outlet’s analysis.”
What Happened in Wisconsin
In Wisconsin, Biden’s margin of victory was approximately 20,682 votes.
Though it was well known that third-party candidates could affect Wisconsin elections in very significant ways, the Wisconsin Elections Commission wrongly kept the names of third-party presidential candidates like Kanye West and the Green Party’s Howie Hawkins off of the ballot.
At least 26,673 people used mail-in ballots to vote illegally in Wisconsin after they had moved out of the state.
Postal subcontractor Nathan Pease testified that he had been told by two separate postal workers, on two separate occasions, that the USPS in Wisconsin was preparing to backdate more than 100,000 late-arriving ballots on the morning of November 4, to make it look like they had arrived prior to the statutory deadline.
According to election data in Wisconsin, approximately 49,000 people voted for a Republican House candidate down-ballot but purportedly chose not to vote for Trump at the top of the ticket.
The names of more than 45,000 first-time voters who cast their ballots in Wisconsin in 2020, did not match the names in Department of Transportation records.
State data showed a voter-turnout rate in Wisconsin of 89.25%, an implausibly high number.
Some 170,000 mail-in ballots entered the tabulation process under the guise of absentee ballots, in violation of state law.
James Troupis, the lead attorney for the Trump campaign in Wisconsin, testified as follows to the U.S. Senate on December 16 vis-à-vis the many scores of thousands of illegally cast ballots that had been approved and counted in that state:
“In Wisconsin, we just completed a recount…. Uniquely, we are able to examine actual envelopes that contain the ballots that are submitted by absentee voters. This allowed us to identify by person, by address, by ward. It’s not conspiracy. The real names are in the record. And here’s what we found. We found that there were incomplete and altered certificates. These are the certificates on the front of the envelopes that have to be exactly done correctly under our law. If not, those results may not be counted [in the election]. How many of those? More than 3,000 of those identified by person were nonetheless counted, even though they are clearly invalid under the law.
“A second category, initials of clerks are placed on all of those envelopes. Why? Because the clerk identifies it having been properly received and identification is provided. That’s the check in advance of the election. What did we find? More than 2,000 of those ballots in Dane and Milwaukee County had no initials at all. But nonetheless, they got counted.
“We also have special laws in Wisconsin with regard to voting in advance. We do not allow advanced voting. We allow in-person and other voting as absentee. So, anything before election day is under our absentee rules. What did the city of Madison do? They created a system where people could arrive at a park, hand in their ballots in envelopes five weeks before the election. They also created boxes. No controls at all. Just boxes on [street] corners that you could throw the ballot in. No attempt at all. And our statutes explicitly say there are only two ways to submit an absentee ballot. In person or delivery to the clerk’s office. That’s it. Nothing else is allowed. And yet have the city of Madison, we had … 17,271 ballots in this category that we identify. There are tens of thousands more because they co-mingled the ballots afterwards so we couldn’t identify each one that may have been properly cast.
“Then we have an interesting category called ‘indefinitely confined.’ These are people who [cannot vote in person because of their] age, physical illness or infirmity, or [disability]. So, they don’t have to provide any identification. Among those claiming this status is one of the electors for Joe Biden, who said, ‘I can’t get to the polls.’ We have poll workers who claimed it. We have people who went to protests, people who had weddings, people who had vacations, all claimed this status. ‘I can’t get to the polls.’ So, they were able to vote without identification. There were 28,395 people we explicitly identified [in this category].
“Finally, there are other categories in which as much as 170,000 other ballots were submitted without any application. In fact, they considered the certification envelope the application, though a separate application is required by law. Three million people properly voted in the state of Wisconsin. More than 200,000 identified during this recount did not. But those votes got counted, and our statute says they should not have been.”
A vote update in Wisconsin at 3:42 AM on November 4 added 143,379 votes for Biden and 25,163 votes for Trump.
On August 27, 2021, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) issued a report showing that 82,766 mail ballots sent to voters in Wisconsin’s November 2020 presidential election either went missing for unknown reasons (76,308) or were classified as “undeliverable” (6,458). The 82,766 figure was more than four times larger than Joe Biden’s 20,682-vote margin of victory in that state. PILF President J. Christian Adams said in the statement: “We now know the cost of the rush to mail balloting – lost ballots. The federal data show the 2020 election had more mail ballots that were never counted than the margin of victory in the Presidential election in Wisconsin. This isn’t the way to run an election. Mail ballots invite error, disenfranchisement of voters, and puts the inept U.S. Post Office determining the outcome of elections.”
On October 28, 2021, an investigation by law-enforcement in Racine County, Wisconsin revealed that Democrat state election officials had flagrantly violated election laws by ordering health-care employees to help cognitively impaired nursing-home residents cast ballots in the 2020 elections. The investigation had been launched when a woman named Judy signed a sworn affidavit with the Wisconsin Elections Commission after learning that her mother, Shirley, a Ridgewood Care Facility resident who had died on October 9, 2020 after a period of precipitous cognitive decline, was on record as having voted in the 2020 presidential election. The affidavit was subsequently brought to the attention of the county district attorney as a complaint. This appalling case was likely the mere tip of a very large proverbial iceberg, as The Federalist explained:
“Judy alleged that her mother Shirley’s mental state had deteriorated so far that she was having hallucinations and wasn’t able to recall what she had eaten during a day or even what day it was. According to Judy, her mother couldn’t see — her glasses were broken, and she couldn’t even recognize her own daughter — so even if she were of a sound mind, she wouldn’t have known whether someone assisting her with a ballot had voted according to her wishes.
“[Racine County Sgt. Michael] Luell, who led the investigation at the request of the district attorney, found an unusual spike in voting at this care facility: 42 people had voted in the 2020 presidential election. That number is usually 10. Furthermore, in 2020, 38 people had requested absentee ballots, up from the usual 0-3 in normal years. […]
“This surge in voting was the result of Wisconsin Elections Commission officials breaking state law. The commission — which is made up of six commissioners, including three Democrats and three Republicans, who are appointed by legislative leaders or the governor and serve as an agency in the executive branch under the governor — authorized nursing home employees to help residents vote, which Luell noted ‘is a direct violation of law.’ According to Luell, employees would ask residents how they voted in the past and then vote according to that party. In other words, if Judy’s mother ‘could only recall JFK,’ staff would vote Democrat for her.
“According to state law, however, nursing home staff can’t assist residents with voting. In fact, nobody can help the voter other than a relative or ‘special voting deputies,’ which are people appointed by municipal clerks or elections boards to conduct absentee voting at care facilities.
“In March, however, the Wisconsin Elections Commission sent out a letter mandating that municipalities should not use the ‘special voting deputy process.’
“’Ladies and gentleman, it’s not a process. It’s the law,’ Luell said, citing state Statute 6.875.
“The original letter was issued under the guise of COVID guidelines. Nevertheless, in September, after the governors’ lockdown orders had expired and the initial shock of the pandemic had passed, the Wisconsin Elections Commission sent a letter to all residential care facilities telling the workers how to help residents vote, including even marking the ballot for them, in direct violation of state law. [..] Under Wisconsin state statute 12.13, breaking these laws about special voting deputies constitutes ‘election fraud,’ which is a felony.
“’We’re just one of 72 counties, Racine County,’ [Sheriff Christopher] Schmaling noted. ‘Ridgeland is one of 11 facilities within our county. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of these facilities throughout the entire state of Wisconsin. We would be foolish … to think for a moment that this integrity issue, this violation of the statute, occurred to just this small group of people at one care facility in one county in the entire state. I would submit to you that this needs the attorney general’s investigation,’ the sheriff said, calling for the AG to launch an immediate probe into the Wisconsin Elections Commission.
In March 2023, conservative columnist Bruce Bawer — after having studied the contents of author Joseph Fried’s 2022 book Debunked? An Auditor Reviews the 2020 Election — summarized some notable election anomalies that had occurred in the 2020 presidential election in Wisconsin:
“Having famously lost their state to Trump in 2016, Wisconsin Democrats worked vigorously before the 2020 election to ensure a win. The Wisconsin Election Commission (WEC), fearing that the Green Party would siphon away Biden votes, removed the third party from the ballot – an outrageous action that was, incredibly, upheld by state courts. A big, splashy pre-election event thrown by the Democratic Party in a Madison park plainly amounted to a very audacious case of ballot harvesting; but when Trump supporters complained about this and other irregularities to the Wisconsin Supreme Court, Judge Jill Karovsky sneered that their charges ‘smack[ed] of racism’ and accused them of ‘want[ing] us to overturn this election so your king can remain in power.’
“Then there was the vote harvesting in Milwaukee, which TruetheVote (TTV) described as ‘an organized crime,’ with ballots being given to left-wing NGOs, then deposited (presumably after alteration) in drop boxes. As if all this weren’t low enough, across the state, in what clearly looked like a case of ‘criminal conspiracy to commit election fraud,’ nursing-home patients – including those with dementia – were pressured to vote, with 66 nursing homes consequently evincing 100% turnout. Complaints by patients’ relatives led to criminal charges against five of the six WEC members.
“The most important figure in Wisconsin’s 2020 election – which was officially won by Biden, with 1.63 million voters to Trump’s 1.61 million, four years after Trump had taken 1.40 million votes to Clinton’s 1.38 million – was not a Cheesehead but a Californian. In what looked suspiciously like a payoff scheme to gain control of the election process, Mark Zuckerburg’s Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) spread millions of dollars around to public officials in Milwaukee, Madison, Racine, Kenosha, and Green Bay. In all of these cities, as a result, control of the polling and vote-counting was illegally transferred from county clerks to CTCL representatives. The CTCL official who was sent to Green Bay – Michael Spitzer-Rubinstein, a former Obama staffer from New York – counted late ballots, a violation of the law.
“When the numbers came in, there was much to raise eyebrows. Across the state, ballot rejection rates were far lower than in previous years. There were more than 23,000 questionable voters – those without a DMV record, those with non-matching birth dates, those with name mismatches, and so on. Shadiest of all, the voter turnout in Madison increased over one thousand percent from 2016 to 2020.
“At the direction of the state legislature, the Office of Special Council (OSC) set out to investigate the election – only to be stonewalled by election officials, the state Attorney General, and the voting-machine companies. The OSC was able to come to some conclusions, however. On Election Night, at least in Green Bay, it determined, voting machines had been connected by Internet to ‘a secret, hidden WiFi access point at the Grand Hyatt hotel,’ with ‘the WiFi, machines, and ballots’ under the control of ‘an agent of a special interest group.’ Since OSC auditors were refused access to the votes cast in Madison and Milwaukee – 19 percent of the state’s total ballots – the audit was incomplete. Nevertheless, the corporate media declared the vote legitimate. A Washington Post article dismissed claims of fraud in Wisconsin, even though the report on which it was based had begun by stating that it was ‘almost certain’ that the number of illegal votes in the state had ‘exceeded Joe Biden’s margin of victory.’ The OSC, by the way, was shuttered last August .”
Illegal Exploitation of Drop Boxes by Ballot Harvesters in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin
On March 18, 2022, the election-integrity organization True The Vote (TTV) released a blockbuster report containing evidence of massive, illegal exploitation of ballot drop-boxes by ballot harvesters in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. Below are some key excerpts from the report:
In 2021, in response to whistleblower reports, TTV began purchasing and analyzing publicly available drop box surveillance video and commercially available geospatial (mobile device) data generated at … drop box locations during the time periods in which drop boxes were in use for the 2020 General Election.
TTV also purchased commercially available, anonymized, geospatial mobile device information. Analysis of this cell phone data can pinpoint the specific location of a unique device at a specific time without disclosing private information about the device owner’s identity.
TTV purchased 25 terabytes of cell phone signal data emitted by devices in the Milwaukee County area during the two-week period prior to the 2020 election, October 20 – November 3. The data was purchased from standard commercial providers and includes signals from over 27,000 cell phone apps, which data aggregators purchase and resell to public and private buyers for official and commercial uses.
Wisconsin law requires that absentee ballot envelopes be “mailed by the elector, or delivered in person, to the municipal clerk issuing the ballot or ballots.” It is illegal for an absentee ballot to be cast by anyone other than the elector, with a witness certifying the vote.
In municipalities in the Milwaukee County area, 53,291 cell phones were pinpointed at ballot drop boxes three or more times during the 10/20 – 11/3 window. Within that two-week window, 107 unique devices made (1) 20 or more visits to drop boxes (averaging 26 visits each, some as many as 10-15 per day) and (2) multiple visits to non-governmental organizations (“NGOs”) involved in get-out-the-vote efforts (averaging 5 NGO visits each). Those 107 “20X” devices together visited drop boxes a total of 2,824 times during the window, with a majority of visits occurring after 8:00 pm, past posted business hours at the government or other locations where the drop boxes were located.
What Happened in Pennsylvania
In Pennsylvania, where Biden’s margin of victory was approximately 80,555 votes, some 165,412 of the mail-in and absentee ballots that were requested in the names of registered Republican voters in Pennsylvania, were never tabulated by vote-counters. Williams College mathematics professor Steven Miller, who specializes in analytic number theory and sabermetrics, analyzed the data and concluded, in a sworn affidavit, that: (a) the number of ballots “requested in the name of a registered Republican by someone other than that person” was “almost surely … between 37,001 and 58,914,” and (b) the number of “Republican ballots that the requester returned but were not counted” was “almost surely” between 38,910 and 56,483.
Approximately 682,777 mail-in ballots were tallied without a Republican poll observer on hand.
Up to 25,000 nursing home residents in various facilities across the state requested mail-in ballots at precisely the same time prior to the election. This strongly suggests a coordinated action that would constitute a form of ballot harvesting, which is illegal in Pennsylvania.
A sworn affidavit claims that election workers in Pennsylvania were instructed to assign ballots without names to random people across the state. Consequently, thousands of Pittsburgh residents who showed up to vote in person were told that, according to official records, they already had voted.
At least 1,400 early and absentee voters in Pennsylvania listed their home addresses as those of post offices, UPS facilities, and FedEx locations, disguising the box numbers as “Apartment,” “Unit,” “Suite,” etc.
In violation of state law, poll workers took some 4,500 ballots that had various errors and filled them out again, so that the poll machines could read them properly.
In Pennsylvania, more than 51,000 mail-in and absentee ballots were marked as having been returned just one day after they were sent out by election officials, a virtual impossibility. Nearly 35,000 additional mail-in and absentee ballots were marked as having been returned on the same day that they were sent out, and another 23,000+ had a return date that was earlier than the sent date. Further, there were more than 43,000 mail-in and absentee ballots marked as having been returned just two days after being sent out, which still represents an implausibly fast turnaround time. Plus, more than 9,000 mail-in and absentee ballots had no “sent” date listed at all.
A “naked ballot” is a mail-in or absentee ballot that lacks an outer envelope with the voter’s signature on it. Because that signature constitutes the only evidence by which election officials can verify an absentee voter’s identity, those officials are barred by law from accepting and counting any naked ballets. But Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, a registered Democrat, issued a “guidance” directing election officials to accept naked ballots, in violation of state law. When the Pennsylvania Supreme Court subsequently rejected this guidance, Boockvar refused to issue a new guidance mandating that any noncompliant mail-in or absentee ballots should not be counted.
A Republican poll observer from Pennsylvania’s Delaware County, Greg Stenstrom — an expert in security fraud — told a Senate GOP Policy Committee hearing that 47 USB cards containing poll results had gone missing without explanation. He also said that he had witnessed at least two dozen instances where a warehouse supervisor uploaded USB card data to voting machines without being observed by a poll watcher.
In addition, Stenstrom testified that he and a fellow poll watcher had observed between 60,000 and 70,000 ballots kept in a back room “for about three hours” and never counted, before “they disappeared.” Asserting that “we just learned two days ago that virtually all chain of custody logs, records, yellow sheets, everything, was gone,” Stenstrom said that “all forensic evidence, all custody sheets” from Delaware County “are gone,” meaning that “we have a situation in where we have 100,000 to 120,000 ballots, both mail-in and USB, that are in question” and “impossible to verify.”
Whistleblower Jesse Morgan, who worked as a truck driver for a subcontractor with the USPS, said that on October 21 he had driven a truck filled with potentially upward of 288,000 ballots from Bethpage, New York to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, thereby illegally transporting ballots across state lines.
Affidavits by postal workers in three Pennsylvania cities testified that various post offices had illegally backdated ballots and had ordered that Trump mail be placed in the “Undeliverable Bulk Business Mail” bin, while emphasizing that Biden mail should be delivered on time.
Pennsylvania postal worker Richard Hopkins told James O’Keefe of Project Veritas that Erie County postmaster Robert Wisenbach had told postal employees to separate mail-in ballots that arrived after November 3 from other mail, and to backdate those ballots so that they could be counted in the election. Both the Washington Post and New York Times later published false stories claiming, incorrectly, that Hopkins had retracted his allegation.
In one particular vote spike in Pennsylvania during the wee morning hours of November 4, approximately 570,000 votes were added to Biden’s total, while a mere 3,200 were added to Trump’s total – a ratio of about 178-to-1.
On December 28, 2020, a group of Republican state lawmakers who had analyzed election data in Pennsylvania reported that whereas Department of State records indicated that 6,962,607 total ballots had been cast on Election Day (November 3) — including 6,931,060 total votes for the presidential race — the Department of State/SURE system records showed that only 6,760,230 individuals had actually voted on that date. The discrepancy of 170,830 votes in the presidential race was more than twice the reported statewide difference of 80,555 votes that separated Biden and Trump. The aforementioned Republican lawmakers issued a statement that said: “These findings call into question the accuracy of the SURE system, consistency in the application of the Pennsylvania Election Code from county to county, and the competency of those charged with oversight of elections in our Commonwealth. These numbers just don’t add up, and the alleged certification of Pennsylvania’s presidential election results was absolutely premature, unconfirmed, and in error.”
On January 4, 2021, Lynda McLaughlin from the Data Integrity Group, along with data scientists Justin Mealey (a former electronic warfare technician in the U.S. Navy) and Dave Lobue, reported vital data on the presidential election results in Pennsylvania. According to the McLaughlin-Mealey-Lobue analysis, at least 432,116 votes—including 213,707 Election Day votes and 218,409 mail-in/absentee votes—were removed from President Trump’s total in at least 15 counties statewide. As The Epoch Times explained: “Time-series election data shows Trump’s votes decrementing in various counties at numerous time points instead of increasing as would be expected under normal circumstances.” According to Lynda McLaughlin: “There were vote movements across all candidates. However, we did not see the same type of negative decrements to any of the [other] candidates that we saw with President Trump’s tallies, and they happened repeatedly with no explanation.”
Some 10,000 ballots were receive by election authorities up to 3 days after Election Day.
In March 2023, conservative columnist Bruce Bawer — after having studied the contents of author Joseph Fried’s 2022 book Debunked? An Auditor Reviews the 2020 Election — summarized some notable election anomalies that had occurred in the 2020 presidential election in Pennsylvania:
“In 2016, Trump’s Keystone State win – 2.97 million votes to Clinton’s 2.93 – was an instant legend. Three years later, the state legislature passed Act 77, which relaxed rules for absentee voting and permitted ballot harvesting. After Election Day, several rather eye-popping testimonies emerged. A number of hidden-camera videos recorded patently illegal conduct – including the destruction of election records – on the part of election workers. One of the videos showed two Delaware County election workers discussing the need ‘to destroy and/or hide 2020 election information requested under Pennsylvania’s Right to Know laws.’ The county District Attorney closed his ‘investigation’ into these videos without taking action. Delaware County, as it happens, was the last in Pennsylvania to report its vote totals – and before that report came in, Trump was winning the state.
“There were other suspicious tidings. A former U.S. attorney in Philadelphia claimed that Attorney General Robert Barr had blocked his effort to probe election fraud. Jesse Morgan, a truck driver who worked as a subcontractor for the U.S. Postal Service, claimed to have driven ‘hundreds of thousands of completed ballots’ from New York to Pennsylvania, where ‘his truck disappeared – with the ballots.’ While the vote tally was underway in Philadelphia, a municipal judge ruled, preposterously, that keeping Republican observers over thirty feet away from the ballot counters was reasonable. He was overturned by a state judge – whose ruling the Philadelphia sheriff refused to enforce. The state Supreme Court, by a party-line vote, then reversed the state judge, forcing GOP observers to stand at a distance from which they couldn’t observe anything.
“When Pennsylvania’s ballots were counted, the total number exceeded by 202,000 the number of registered voters. Steven Miller, a professor of mathematics at Williams College, found that around 90,000 of the absentee ballots purportedly requested by Republican voters had either been requested by persons other than those GOP voters or had been completed and sent in by those voters but never counted. This number exceeded Biden’s winning Pennsylvania margin. (He was awarded 3.46 million votes to Trump’s 3.38 million.) Miller’s findings caused outrage among American academics – not at the appearance of massive fraud, but at the spectacle of a fellow academic, and presumably fellow lefty, calling out Democratic Party malfeasance.”
What Happened in Michigan
In Michigan, where Biden’s margin of victory was 154,188 votes, approximately 9,500 Michigan mail-in ballots were purportedly submitted by voters whose names and birth dates matched those in the death records of the Social Security Death Index. (Mike Lindell’s video about the 2020 election, Absolute Proof, places the figure at 17,367. In addition, nearly 2,000 more ballots were cast in the names of voters who claimed to be aged 100+ but were not listed in public records as living individuals.
In a federal lawsuit filed against Michigan on November 10, 2020, President Trump’s re-election campaign presented 234 pages of sworn witness affidavits describing how, in violation of Michigan’s election code, Republican poll challengers had been prevented in various ways from being able to properly observe the vote-counting process – particularly in Wayne, which is Michigan’s most populous county. “Election officials would applaud, cheer, and yell whenever a Republican challenger was ejected from the counting area,” the lawsuit stated.
In 18 sworn affidavits, Michigan witnesses claimed that election officials had counted the ballots of people whose names were not in the voter file, and that those names were added into the system with the birth date of January 1, 1900. One of these 18 affiants was Robert Cushman, who said in his testimony: “When I asked about this impossibility of each ballot having the same birthday occurring in 1900, I was told that was the instruction that came down from the Wayne County Clerk’s office.”
Affidavits filed in Michigan claimed that poll workers had been instructed to ignore signature mismatches, backdate late-arriving ballots (to make it appear that they had arrived before the statutory deadline), and process ballots of questionable validity.
Seven witnesses in Michigan said they had seen the same stacks of ballots being run through tabulation machines multiple times by Democrat poll workers (with no Republicans alongside them).
According to one affidavit, a Michigan election supervisor violated existing state law by instructing election workers at in-person polling places not to request photo identification from voters.
Poll challenger Andrew Sitto swore in an affidavit that boxes filled with tens of thousands of unsealed, unsecured ballots—all cast for Democrats—had arrived in vehicles with out-of-state license plates in Michigan’s Wayne County at 4:30 AM on the morning after Election Day. “I specifically noticed that every ballot I observed was cast for Joe Biden,” said Sitto. According to another sworn affidavit, the names on the ballots in these boxes did not appear on either the Qualified Voter File (QVF) or the supplemental lists of voters who had registered shortly before Election Day.
Sitto said that in the vote-counting room where he had been stationed on Election Day, an election official at one point used a large sheet of cardboard to block the windows; that same official subsequently refused to let Sitto re-enter the room after he had left for a break.
Robert Cushman, a poll challenger in Detroit, said in a sworn affidavit: “I saw the computer operators at several counting boards manually adding,” “to the QVF system,” “the names and addresses of these thousands of ballots … from unknown, unverified ‘persons.’”
An affidavit filed by a postal worker in Traverse City, Michigan states that various post offices illegally backdated some 100,000 ballots and ordered that Trump mail be placed in the “Undeliverable Bulk Business Mail” bin, while stipulating that Biden mail should be delivered promptly.
Another postal employee in Traverse City contacted James O’Keefe of Project Veritas to describe, on video, how his supervisor, Johnathon Clarke, had required postal workers to illegally segregate and manually backdate ballots received after the statutory deadline of 8 PM on Election Day. The workers were then ordered to immediately send these doctored ballots to the P.O.’s main distribution center. When Mr. O’Keefe subsequently reached Clarke by phone to question him about the allegations, a startled Clarke refused to say a word and immediately hung up the call.
IT and cyber-security specialist Melissa Carone, who on November 3 and 4 worked as a contractor for Dominion Voting Systems — the company that provided the voting machines in 66 of Michigan’s 83 counties in 2020 — told a Michigan Senate Oversight Committee hearing: “What I witnessed at the TDS Center [where votes were being counted] was complete fraud. The whole 27 hours I was there. There were batches of ballots being ran through the tabulating machines numerous times, being counted eight to ten times, I watched this with my own eyes. I was there to assist with IT.” Adding that she was “under the impression 100 percent that all of these workers were in on this,” Carone claimed: “There was not a single ballot that the whole night, the whole 27 hours that I was there, that was for Donald Trump, not one.”
Carone also noted that there had been approximately 22 to 24 tabulating machines in the location where she was working, and that she observed election-related malpractice “thousands of times” while she was at the site.
The anti-election-fraud organization “Guard the Vote” examined 30,000 of the 172,000 mail-in and absentee ballots that were cast in the city of Detroit. Of those 30,000 ballots, 229 were cast in the names of dead people, while another 2,660 were cast by people claiming invalid home addresses such as those of vacant lots and burnt-down houses. In short, at least 2,889 (9.6%) of these 30,000 Detroit ballots should have been discarded. If this rate of ineligibility is representative of the city’s 172,000 mail-in votes as a whole, more than 16,500 of those votes were likely invalid.
Patty McMurray, a Republican poll challenger in Detroit, claimed that she had seen large numbers of photocopied mail-in ballots submitted in the names of unregistered voters, all cast for Biden. “Not one of the ballots was a registered military voter, and the ballots looked like they were all the same Xeroxed copies of the ballot,” she testified. “They were all for Biden across the board. There wasn’t a single Trump vote. None of the voters are registered.” Asserting that election workers had entered those names and addresses with phony birthdates that “would override the system and allow them to enter nonregistered voters,” McMurray added: “Throughout the day, that’s how they would override voters that were neither in the electronic poll book or the supplemental, updated poll book.”
A vote update in Michigan at 3:50 AM on November 4 added 54,497 votes for Biden and 4,718 votes for Trump.
Another vote update in Michigan at 6:31 AM on November 4 added 141,258 votes for Biden and 5,968 votes for Trump.
In March 2023, conservative columnist Bruce Bawer — after having studied the contents of author Joseph Fried’s 2022 book Debunked? An Auditor Reviews the 2020 Election — summarized some notable election anomalies that had occurred in the 2020 presidential election in Michigan:
“In the run-up to the 2020 election, Jocelyn Benson, Michigan’s Democratic Secretary of State, sent out ballot applications to everybody on the voter rolls – a blatant violation of state law that an appeals court nonetheless upheld. Millions of these applications weren’t used, at least not by the individuals to whom they’d been addressed. Since Benson (also unlawfully) waived signature tests – a move that Trump successfully challenged in court, although the ruling came too late to matter – there was little chance of illegitimate ballots being identified and discarded.
“People who were present at Wayne County (Detroit) polling stations and at its ballot-counting center reported deliberately slovenly methods that seemed designed to let fraudulent ballots slip through. One poll worker reported being instructed to pre-date absentee ballots – and ordered not to ask voters for ID, or look for deficiencies in ballots, or inspect signatures. At that counting facility, there was, by multiple accounts, visible collaboration among election workers, local officials, Democratic activists, and – believe it or not – masked BLM [Black Lives Matter] members, with GOP election observers being harassed, intimidated, removed, or denied access to the premises. Indeed, Democratic poll workers were given written instructions on how to ‘distract’ Republican poll observers. Fried quotes several affidavits that paint a picture of a Zimbabwe-style atmosphere at the counting center. After the election, a videotape surfaced in which a supervisor ordered ballot counters to keep poll watchers at a distance – i.e., too far from the vote count to be able to tell whether or not it was being done fairly.
“There were problems elsewhere in the state, too. In a study of four counties, Dr. Shiva discovered that ‘the more Republican the precinct…the fewer the individual votes for Trump.’ After the election, in which Biden was awarded the state with 2.80 million votes to Trump’s 2.65 million (four years earlier, Trump had eked out a narrow victory over Clinton, with 2.28 to her 2.27 million votes), a former political candidate named Jacky Eubanks went door to door in Macomb County and found that 17.6% of those who’d supposedly voted absentee had not, in fact, done so. If this was representative of a statewide pattern, it could mean that almost a million invalid ballots were counted as legitimate. How did Dana Nessel, the state Attorney General, respond to Eubanks’s findings? By threatening her with legal action; to save her own skin, Eubanks agreed to sit down and shut up.”
What Happened in Nevada
In Nevada, where Biden’s margin of victory was 33,596 votes, 42,284 people are on record as having voted twice in 2020. Moreover, 19,218 ballots were cast in the names of individuals without a Nevada mailing address; 2,468 people who had moved to another state and thus were ineligible to vote in Nevada; 1,506 people who were dead; almost 4,000 non-citizens; and nearly 30,000 people who falsely listed non-residential, vacant, or non-existent addresses as their home addresses.
Approximately 15,000 mail-in or absentee ballots were received from voters who were known to also have voted in other states, meaning that their votes should have been invalid in both states.
On December 16, Trump campaign attorney Jesse Banal testified to the U.S. Senate: “All in all, our experts identified 130,000 unique instances of voter fraud in Nevada. But the actual number is almost certainly higher. Our data scientists made these calculations not by estimations or statistical sampling, but by analyzing and comparing the list of actual voters with other lists, most of which are publicly available.”
Also in his Senate testimony, Banal explained how this widespread fraud had initially come to pass in Nevada:
“On August 3rd, 2020 after a rushed special session, Nevada legislators made drastic changes to the state’s election law by adopting a bill known as AB-4. The vulnerabilities of this statute were obvious. It provided for universal mail voting without sufficient safeguards to authenticate voters or ensure the fundamental requirement that only one ballot was sent to each legally qualified voter. This was aggravated by election officials’ failure to clean known deficiencies in their voter rolls. Because of AB-4, the number of mail ballots rocketed from about 70,000 in 2016 to over 690,000 this year. The election was inevitably riddled with fraud, and our hotline never stopped ringing.”
Data scientist Dorothy Morgan reported that in the Third Congressional District of Nevada alone, there had been 13,372 incomplete and fraudulent voter registrations submitted in 2020, as compared to a mere 68 in 2016. Many of these phony registrations listed casinos or temporary RV parks as the voters’ “home or mailing addresses.” Fully 74% of the fraudulent registrations of 2020 took place between July and September.
Clark County used an Agilis signature-verification system (to check mail-in ballot signatures) that was set to an image-quality level that was only half as sharp (100 DPI vs. 200 DPI) as the what the manufacturer recommended.
In March 2023, conservative columnist Bruce Bawer — after having studied the contents of author Joseph Fried’s 2022 book Debunked? An Auditor Reviews the 2020 Election — summarized some notable election anomalies that had occurred in the 2020 presidential election in Nevada:
“Having gone for Clinton in 2016 by a margin of 539,000 votes to Trump’s 512,000, Nevada was called in 2020 for Biden, with 703,000 votes to Trump’s 670,000. As Fried notes, three months before the 2020 election, the state legislature’s Democratic majority made ’emergency’ changes in its election law – mail-in ballots for all; legalized ballot harvesting; and unguarded ballot drop boxes – that read, in Fried’s words, like ‘an invitation to fraud.’ One journalist observed that unrequested ballots were ‘piling up in post office trays, outside apartment complexes, and on community bulletin boards in and around Las Vegas’; a postal worker, pointing out that ‘thousands of them’ were piled up at the post office, commented: ‘something stinks here.’ Among the other fishy elements of the Nevada vote was the story, told independently by two IT workers, of machines on which the vote counts had changed overnight. Sensational – but a lower-court judge totally ignored their testimony, and the state Supreme Court tossed the case almost instantaneously on appeal.”
What Happened in Multiple Battleground States
In a study headed by Matt Braynard, the former data-and-strategy director for President Trump’s 2016 election campaign, researchers made phone calls to many thousands of registered Republican voters in Pennsylvania who, according to state data, were among the 165,412 Republicans statewide who in 2020 were mailed ballots that were never subsequently marked as having been returned. Of the 1,706 voters whom the researchers were able to contact, nearly one-third said they had never actually requested a ballot. Among the remaining 1,137 voters who said that they had in fact requested a ballot, were 453 (42%) who both: (a) reported that they had mailed their ballots back, and (b) were unaware of the fact that those ballots were never recorded as “received” or “counted” by the state. If the foregoing percentages are representative of what happened to the overall total of 165,412 Republican-requested mail-in ballots that were never tabulated by vote-counters, the implications are obviously enormous.
In other states, Braynard found that the percentage of Republicans who likewise had requested ballots that were never subsequently recorded as having been “received” or “counted” by election officials were: 50% in Arizona, 44% in Georgia, nearly 33% in Michigan, and 20% in Wisconsin.
Braynard found 17,877 early or absentee ballots that were cast in Georgia in the names of people who had filed out-of-state move notices and thus were not eligible to vote in Georgia. The same was true of 7,426 ballots in Pennsylvania, 6,254 ballots in Wisconsin, 5,145 ballots in Nevada, 5,084 ballots in Arizona, and 1,688 ballots in Michigan.
Records show that in Pennsylvania, some 98,000 people voted only for Joe Biden and did not vote for anyone further down the ticket. The corresponding numbers in other key states were approximately: 80,000 to 90,000 in Georgia, 42,000 in Arizona, 63,000 in Wisconsin, and 69,000 to 115,000 in Michigan.
According to an analysis by the research group Just Facts, it is likely that 234,570 noncitizen votes benefited Biden across seven closely contested battleground states: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. Previous research has found that 81% of noncitizens who vote, cast their ballots for Democrats.
Prior to the 2020 election, a Pew Research Center survey reported that in those states where a Senate seat was up for grabs in 2020, “overwhelming shares of voters” who planned to back either Trump or Biden said that they also would be “supporting the same-party candidate for Senate.” Consistent with those survey results, in traditionally red and blue non-battleground states alike, the total number of votes garnered by Biden was only slightly higher than the number of votes received by the Democrat Senate candidates who were also on the ballot. Similarly, the total number of votes won by Trump was only a little bit higher than the number of votes received by the Republican Senate candidates who were also on the ballot.
But in the battleground states, inexplicably, the gap between Biden and the Democrat Senate candidates was far greater than the gap between Trump and the Republican Senate candidates. In Michigan, for example, Biden received 69,093 more votes than did Democrat Senate candidate Gary Peters, while Trump received only 7,131 more votes than Republican Senate candidate John James. And in Georgia, Biden received 95,801 more votes than did Democrat Senate candidate Jon Osoff, while Trump received only 818 more votes than Republican Senate candidate David Perdue. This means that in battleground states, a large number of Democrats seem to have voted for Biden while mysteriously choosing to ignore the highly important Senate races.
In the overwhelmingly Democrat cities of New York, Chicago, and Miami, Biden’s vote totals in 2020, when compared with Hillary Clinton’s vote totals from 2016, was down by 201,408, 260,835, and 6,945 respectively. But in cities that Biden needed in order to win battleground states in 2020, he gained massively in comparison to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 vote totals. For example, in Atlanta, Milwaukee, and Pittsburg, he outperformed Mrs. Clinton by 76,518, 67,630, and 29,150 votes, respectively.
When data analyst Bobby Piton examined a list of people who had voted in Pennsylvania in 2020, he identified 521,879 unique last names among them. These were people who had no known relatives — parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, or cousins — anywhere in the state who had the same last name as the voters. According to a 2010 report by the U.S. Census Bureau, there are fewer than 4 million such cases in every U.S. state combined. This means that in order for the Pennsylvania election results to be accurate, that state, which has only about 4% of the U.S. population, would have to have more than 13% of all the unique names — a huge statistical improbability. Piton added that more than half of these voter surnames in Pennsylvania appear to be fake. He also stated that this same surname anomaly extended to a number of other battleground states, including Georgia and Arizona. The data, said Piton, was likely manipulated by a “sophisticated state entity” in order to ensure a particular election outcome.
Because so many ballots were cast in 2020 by people voting by mail for the first time, most experts, using historical patterns as a guide, predicted that ballots would be rejected at a higher-than-usual rate for flaws such as missing information, inaccurate information, or a failure to place ballots in secrecy envelopes. But precisely the opposite occurred in the battleground states:
In Pennsylvania, a mere 0.03% of the state’s mail-in ballots were rejected in 2020 – a rate more than 30 times lower than the 2016 rejection rate of 1%.
In Georgia, the rejection rate in 2020 was 0.2%, more than 30 times lower than the 6.4% figure from 2016.
In Nevada, the 2020 rejection rate was approximately 0.75%, less than half the 1.6% rate from 2016.
In North Carolina, the 2020 rejection rate was 0.8%, less than one-third the 2.7% rate from 2016.
In Michigan, the 2020 rejection rate was 0.1%, about one-fifth the 0.5% rate from 2016.
Citing what occurred in Pennsylvania, an Epoch Times report provides a partial explanation for these low 2020 rejection rates: “Election officials in [Pennsylvania’s] Democrat strongholds … exceeded their authority in order to give voters preferential treatment that wasn’t afforded to voters in Republican-leaning areas of the state. Specifically, election workers illegally ‘pre-canvassed’ mail-in ballots to determine whether they were missing a secrecy envelope or failed to include necessary information. When ballots were found to be flawed, voters were given an opportunity to correct, or ‘cure,’ their ballots to make sure they counted.”
Rigged & Corrupted Voting Machines
According to witness and expert statements contained in a lawsuit released by former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell and her legal team: (a) agents of malicious actors such as China and Iran accessed the software used by the Dominion voting machines in 2020 “in order to monitor and manipulate elections”; (b) an affiant who was part of a national security detail to former Venezuelan socialist dictator Hugo Chavez, said that the software used by Dominion was designed specifically to enable the Venezuelan government to rig elections without getting caught; (c) that allegation was corroborated by another witness who “was in an official position related to elections and witnessed manipulations of petitions to prevent a removal of President Chavez”; (d) another affiant who was the cousin of the former chief executive of Smartmatic, the company that developed the Dominion software, said that Smartmatic executive was determined “to ensure the election for Chavez in the 2004 Referendum in Venezuela”; (e) Princeton computer-science professor and election-security expert Andrew Appel testified that the vote tallies calculated by the Dominion machines could be manipulated by imputing a malicious code in just “7 minutes alone with [the voting machine] and a screwdriver”; and (f) Finnish computer programmer and election-security expert Hari Hursti testified that the Dominion voting machines can easily be hacked because they are connected to the Internet, a fact which he described as “a grave security implication.”
Dominion Voting Systems user manuals contain explicit instructions for connecting the voting machines to the Internet.
Col. Phil Waldron, the founder and CEO of PointStream Inc., stated that the Dominion voting machines that were used in the 2020 election were in fact connected to the Internet and thus could be manipulated by external actors — something that Dominion had theretofore denied. Asserting that the voting machines in U.S. cities were sending their vote tallies to servers located overseas, where the vote counts were then altered, Waldron told interviewer Mike Lindell: “It’s cyber warfare and unconventional asymmetric warfare conducted by a peer, threat nation-state against the United States government critical infrastructure…. [W]e found the foreign servers in Barcelona and the UK and in Frankfurt [and] the one in Toronto, obviously, with Dominion.” Lindell then asked, “So you know [with] 100% proof, that the servers are overseas in other people’s countries, for our election?” And Waldron replied: “Yes, we were mapping out the servers before the elections. We identified the … server in Frankfurt down to the street address.” Waldron also said:
“I believe that this is a coup that definitely involved elements inside our own country and inside our own federal government. Definitely part of a coup that was aided and abetted by a foreign threat nation state, a peer enemy nation state, China.”
“We have affidavits of CIA and State Department personnel out of the Italian embassy participating in this coup. We have a name, email, and phone number of a senior DOJ official, from a US attorney, that said that this individual was shutting down any DOJ or FBI investigation into any election-related investigation and trying to shut down judicial cases, court cases. So, inside our own DOJ, people were shutting down active investigations. You wonder why Mr. [Attorney General Bill] Barr didn’t find or see any evidence of widespread election fraud, it was because the FBI never did anything other than to impede the investigations into election fraud.”
One particularly noteworthy affiant describes himself as a former “electronic intelligence analyst under 305th Military Intelligence” with “experience gathering SAM missile system electronic intelligence” and “extensive experience as a white hat hacker used by some of the top election specialists in the world.” After conducting extensive forensic reviews, this witness concluded that “the Dominion software was accessed by agents acting on behalf of China and Iran in order to monitor and manipulate elections, including the most recent US general election in 2020.” He denounced Dominion for its “complete failure” to provide “basic cyber security.”
A separate complaint in Georgia concurred that “by using servers and employees connected with rogue actors and hostile foreign influences combined with numerous easily discoverable leaked credentials, Dominion neglectfully allowed foreign adversaries to access data and intentionally provided access to their infrastructure in order to monitor and manipulate elections, including the most recent one in 2020.”
Ben Turner — the head of Fraud Spotters, a consultancy specializing in the detection of insurance fraud — conducted a county-by-county analysis of how the adoption of Dominion Voting Systems machines between the 2008 and 2020 presidential races may have affected election results in those places. After controlling for a host of key variables like race, population, immigration rate, and education, Turner found that in presidential races, the use of Dominion machines was associated with a 1.55 percentage point decrease in the Republican vote and a 1.55 percentage point increase in the Democratic vote.
Another longtime data analyst found that Biden in 2020 had performed above the prediction line in 78% of counties that used either Dominion or HART InterCivic voting machines, consistently receiving 5.6% more votes than expected. The analyst called this “a dramatic red flag.”
After conducting a forensic audit of Dominion voting machines, Russell Ramsland Jr., co-founder of Allied Security Operations Group, said in a report: “We conclude that the Dominion Voting System is intentionally and purposefully designed with inherent errors to create systemic fraud and influence election results. The system intentionally generates an enormously high number of ballot errors. The electronic ballots are then transferred for adjudication. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency, and no audit trail.” Ramsland added that the machines’ “own logs … show very clearly that the RCV [Ranked-Choice Voting] algorithm was enacted. It shows very clearly that the error messages were massive. It [shows] very clearly that races were flipped.”
There was a particularly noteworthy situation in Antrim County, Michigan, a heavily Republican area where more than 6,000 votes that belonged to Trump were initially credited to Biden, making it seem as though Biden had won the county. The improbability of this caused public outrage in Antrim and drew attention from election officials. Ramsland explains how this error initially came to public light: “There was a down-ballot race, and the judge allowed some limited discovery [i.e., physical examinations of the voting machines]. What came out of that was appalling enough that he allowed further discovery. And then of course, that report went national because what we found was so horrifying.” The votes were subsequently restored to their rightful recipients, and Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Dominion Voting Systems attributed the vote-switch to human error rather than to any commands built into the ballot-counting machines.
A report by the Dallas-based Allied Security Operations Group (ASOG) addressed what had occurred in Antrim County:
“It is critical to understand that the Dominion system classifies ballots into two categories, 1) normal ballots and 2) adjudicated ballots. Ballots sent to adjudication can be altered by administrators, and adjudication files can be moved between different Results Tally and Reporting (RTR) terminals with no audit trail of which administrator actually adjudicates (i.e. votes) the ballot batch. This demonstrated a significant and fatal error in security and election integrity because it provides no meaningful observation of the adjudication process or audit trail of which administrator actually adjudicated the ballots.
“A staggering number of votes [in Antrim] required adjudication. This was a 2020 issue not seen in previous election cycles still stored on the server. This is caused by intentional errors in the system. The intentional errors lead to bulk adjudication of ballots with no oversight, no transparency or audit trail. Our examination of the server logs indicates that this high error rate was incongruent with patterns from previous years. The statement attributing these issues to human error is not consistent with the forensic evaluation, which points more correctly to systemic machine and/or software errors. The systemic errors are intentionally designed to create errors in order to push a high volume of ballots to bulk adjudication.”
Matthew DePerno, the attorney representing Antrim County resident William Bailey, who filed a lawsuit challenging the integrity of the election results in his county, said:
“We found that the Dominion Voting Systems is designed intentionally to create inherent and systemic voting errors. What I mean by that is when you run a ballot through the machine, even if it’s a blank ballot, it will have a 68 percent chance of creating an error. When you create an error, this machine does not reject the ballot. What it does instead is send it to a folder and that folder will then accumulate the ballots until the time that someone decides that they need those ballots. And then those ballots will be bulk adjudicated by someone. Could be offsite, could be onsite somewhere sitting at a computer. And, without any oversight, they can click one button, lope the entire batch of ballots to one candidate and then send them back to the tabulator.
“We believe that what we found, and when you apply those findings to what we saw on Election Night, such as in Detroit, where ballot counting was shutdown at 2 o’clock and then we came back at 4 o’clock and there was large spikes of votes going to Joe Biden, we believe that, in part at least, that that happened because they decided to bulk adjudicate some ballots they had been saving up throughout the night.”
Russell Ramsland noted in early 2021 that he and his colleagues had also managed to examine, to some extent, the voting machines in two additional districts besides Antrim County: “Actually, on a limited basis we have been able to go into two other counties. We have not published that information [yet], and there are reasons why we aren’t publishing that information right now, but both of them … have confirmed that it’s even worse than in Antrim.”
“What actually happened in this … stolen [presidential] election,” said Russell Ramsland, “we already knew was going to happen…. Now , we didn’t know how many foreign servers. You know, before, we weren’t seeing very many foreign servers [changing] votes. But in this election, of course, we saw thousands from all over the world.” “We thought it [fraud] was going to happen on three levels,” Ramsland added. “We thought there would be massive local cheating, we thought there would be cheating through the actual voting companies themselves,… and we thought that there would be cheating from votes being injected from overseas. And that’s exactly what we saw happen. And we developed huge, tons of absolute proof on this, but no court case … ever allowed it to be presented. So that sort of gave fodder to this media myth that it didn’t exist. But it does exist…. It’s massive.”
On December 23, 2020, Trump attorney Rudolph Giuliani stated that recent forensic audits in Michigan had found that Dominion Voting Machines were programmed to give Biden an automatic advantage over any number of votes cast for Trump. “We believe from what we saw in Michigan that the machines have an inaccurate vote,” said Giuliani. “That they’re programmed to give Biden somewhere between a 2 percent and 5 percent advantage.” Giuliani also noted that Democrat officials were continuing to resist subpoenas by state lawmakers to allow a broader examination of the Dominion machines.
In December 2020, Misty Martin — the elections supervisor of Coffee County, Georgia — demonstrated, in videos that were posted online, how Dominion Voting Systems software allowed votes to be changed through an “adjudication” process permitting the operator to add vote marks to a scanned ballot, or to invalidate vote marks already on the ballot. As an Epoch Times report noted:
“Adjudication should only serve to resolve issues of voters marking ballots incorrectly, such as filling the bubbles in a way that doesn’t clearly show who he or she voted for. Yet it appears a substantial number of ballots went through that process, at least in some Georgia counties. As … Misty Martin, showed, the system can be set to allow adjudication of all scanned ballots, even blank ones, and effectively allow the operator to vote those ballots…. In Fulton County, which includes Atlanta, over 106,000 ballots were adjudicated by Nov. 4, said Richard Barron, the county’s director of elections, during a Nov. 4 press conference. In total, more than half a million ballots were cast in the county.”
The Testimony of Mary Fanning
National intelligence researcher Mary Fanning appeared in Absolute Proof, Mike Lindell’s film about how fraud and corruption affected the 2020 presidential election. There, Fanning displayed charts of information that cybersecurity experts had collected on Election Day, as well as on the days immediately preceding and following Election Day. (To view her testimony, click here and watch from approximately 1:36:20 to 1:49:40.)
Said Fanning: “They collected terabytes of information that document the election fraud…. This was collected in 2,995 counties in the United States. This was collected in real time…. [I]f you go to the chart, what you will see is the documentation of foreign interference in the election.”
The first column shows the precise date and time of each instance of interference/hacking. The second column shows the IP (Internet Protocol) address of each intruder/hacker who entered into the U.S. election. The third column identifies the owner or source of each IP address. The fourth column shows an ID that is unique to each individual computer used by the various hackers. The fifth column shows the IP address of the targeted computer at a U.S. polling place. The sixth column shows the state in which that targeted computer was located. The seventh column shows the county in which that targeted computer was located. The eighth column shows the unique ID number of the specific computer that the hacker breached. The ninth column shows the method of intrusion that was used by the hacker. The tenth column indicates whether or not the attempted intrusion was successful. The eleventh column shows whether or not a follow-up effort to hack into the targeted computer was successful. And the twelfth and final column is titled “Votes Changed,” indicating how many votes were lost by President Trump. In every single instance shown in the chart displayed by Fanning, Trump lost votes in amounts ranging from 1,116 to 29,044. There were no instances of Trump gaining votes as the result of a hack. Fanning stated that “over 66 percent of the intrusions into our election came from China.”
“This is forensic evidence of foreign footprints as they entered our election in a cyber warfare attack on our election,” Fanning added, noting that there were “thousands of pages” of these “documented footprints [of] foreign intrusion into our elections.” Some intrusions “also came from Iran as well,” she stated.
According to Lindell, if we were to take into account the votes that were wrongfully taken away from Trump and given to Biden, we would find that Trump actually won the election by a margin of approximately 80 million to 68 million votes.

Trump Seeks Redress
When President Trump sought, after the election, to investigate in various courts the evidence of possible fraud or corruption that had occurred, the courts in almost every case simply refused to hear the evidence. Compounding that injustice, the Democrats and their leftwing media allies claimed that it was essentially treasonous for anyone to question the election result and thereby compromise the public’s faith in the integrity of the voting process.
The Navarro Report
To make Trump’s case to the public, Peter Navarro, a Special Assistant to the President, produced a 36-page report “The Immaculate Deception,” which presented evidence that Trump’s lawyers and investigators had been able to collect in the short time available and without the cooperation of state legislatures and the courts. “Evidence used to conduct this assessment,” Navarro’s report explained, “includes more than 50 lawsuits and judicial rulings, thousands of affidavits and declarations, testimony in a variety of state venues, published analyses by think tanks and legal centers, videos and photos, public comments, and extensive press coverage.”
Key excerpts from the report, which focused chiefly on election irregularities in six battleground states in particular — Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin — included the following:
“Significant irregularities occurred across all six battleground states and across all six dimensions of election irregularities. This finding lends credence to the claim that the election may well have been stolen from President Donald J. Trump.”
“[T]he observed patterns of election irregularities are so consistent across the six battleground states that they suggest a coordinated strategy to, if not steal the election outright, strategically game the election process in such a way as to ‘stuff the ballot box’ and unfairly tilt the playing field in favor of the Biden-Harris ticket.”
“If these election irregularities are not fully investigated prior to Inauguration Day and thereby effectively allowed to stand, this nation runs the very real risk of never being able to have a fair presidential election again–with the down-ballot Senate races scheduled for January 5 in Georgia an initial test case of this looming risk.”
The Navarro report summarized its findings by noting that in five of the six key battleground states, Biden’s cumulative margins of victory were a total of 158,174 votes. But legally questionable votes in those same states exceeded 1.4 million—more than enough to decide the outcome.”
The left summarily dismissed and/or simply ignored Navarro’s evidence, while Republican state legislatures chose not to get involved.
William McSwain, Former U.S. Attorney in Pennsylvania, Tells Trump That Former A.G. William Barr Had Told Him Not to Investigate Election Fraud Reports
On July 13, 2021, former President Trump released a letter he had recently received from William McSwain, the former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, saying that former Attorney General William Barr had prevented him from investigating, or speaking publicly about, credible claims of election fraud in Pennsylvania. Said the letter:
“President Trump, you were right to be upset about the way the Democrats ran the 2020 election in Pennsylvania – it was a partisan disgrace. The Governor, the Secretary of the Commonwealth, and the partisan State Supreme Court made up their own rules and did not follow the law. Even worse, the State Attorney General, Josh Shapiro – the very person responsible for the enforcement of state election law – declared days before Election Day that you could not win the election. It would be hard to imagine a more irresponsible statement by a law enforcement officer, especially during a hotly contested election. In light of such statements, it is hardly surprising that many Pennsylvanians lack faith in our state’s election results.
“On Election Day and afterwards, our Office received various allegations of voter fraud and election irregularities. As part of my responsibilities as U.S. Attorney, I wanted to be transparent with the public and, of course, investigate fully any allegations. Attorney General Barr, however, instructed me not to make any public statements or put out any press releases regarding possible election irregularities. I was also given a directive to pass along serious allegations to the State Attorney General for investigation – the same State Attorney General who had already declared that you could not win.
“I disagreed with that decision, but those were my orders. As a Marine infantry officer, I was trained to follow the chain of command and to respect the orders of my superiors, even when I disagree with them.”
Elections Data Expert Finds At Least 8 Million Fraudulent, Excess Biden Votes Nationwide in the 2020 Election
On August 3, 2021, elections data expert Seth Keshel, a retired U.S. Army Intelligence Captain, reported that he had uncovered at least 8 million fraudulent excess votes that were cast for Biden in the 2020 presidential election. To view a two-minute video of Keshel discussing his findings, click here.
The Claim That Trump Lost Virtually All His Court Challenges Regarding the Results of the 2020 Election
In March 2023, conservative columnist Bruce Bawer — after having studied the contents of author Joseph Fried’s 2022 book Debunked? An Auditor Reviews the 2020 Election — wrote the following:
“Yes, Trump’s lawyers have lost dozens of election challenges in courts – but it’s rarely mentioned that he’s lost most of them ‘on the basis of procedure or process.’ Of the thirty cases decided on merit, notes Fried, Trump won 22. Yes, election-security ‘experts’ were quick, after Biden’s 2020 upset, to dismiss concerns about election fraud as ‘conspiracy theories.’ Yet as Fried points out, it takes weeks after an election to discern where there has been fraud.
