American Thinker has a fascinating article showing the machinations and shenanigans underlying our supposedly "democratic" elections.
After the 2020 election results stopped in the middle of the night and vote trajectories magically changed when they fired up again, thousands of people, just like you, didn't buy it. They formed armies of canvassers in 35 or more states. They did something that has not been done at scale in the history of the country: they started checking voter rolls.
They did more. They filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests at unprecedented levels. Secretary of state offices, once a murky sinecure, had to answer real questions about what was going on.
Here's what popped out.
Leftists are different from you and me. Unlike us, they care that every vote is cast, and if you do not cast your vote, they will do it for you. And they did. At scale.
In one Midwestern state, voter rolls costing tens of thousands of dollars were bought by a billionaire leftist every month for over a year. Why would someone buy a list that doesn't change much?
Voter lists show people who move. They show people who never or seldom vote.
The white hat canvassing team built a query for one state: "voters who voted in 2020 who never voted before." Guess what! 265,000.
In the same state, thousands of people came forward with stories that when they showed up to vote, they were told someone had voted for them. Get the picture?
In a southwestern state, in its second-largest city, there was a 21-day daily tabulation of cast ballots. Once a ballot is cast, it should not be changed. Not here.
When the millions of cast votes across over 21 snapshots were compared, thousands of ballots had been altered. Some were minor alterations, like a slight name change. Others were more interesting — like when someone voted in person, but his vote was later changed by an absentee ballot.
It gets better.
Those FOIA requests are mining gold. Our midwestern state has documents showing that the state election organization gave online access to a leftist group for weeks during the voting. Citizens had to pay over $20,000 for one snapshot of the voter roll. Leftists could, and did, access it online throughout the process. For free.
And access it they did. Witness statements are being gathered, lots of them, that in the largest city, election officials were trading cell calls about how many votes were needed, and someone was then providing the phantoms to meet the quota.
They knew the names of the phantoms — they had direct access to who voted, who didn't, and who was likely to never show up.
This is not exclusively a blue-state phenomenon.
In a deep red state, canvassers found more traditional phantoms.
There were the 21 people at the fraternity house. Nothing to see here — until they sorted them by age. All these kids were active voters, many voted, and their age range was from 115 to 57. Some frat house.
These red-state canvassers went deeper. They showed that the phantoms did not vote en masse in the 2020 presidential election. Phew! Feeling better. But wait. They vote in droves in state, county, municipal elections.
Aha — here was another interesting pattern, never seen before.
This deep red state that voted for Trump by double-digit margins did not call out its phantom army when it could not move the needle. When local, state elections were up, well, those people voted — even the 21 at the county jail and the 41 registered at the Recreation Commission.
In earlier American Thinker articles, we created the phrase "sovereign fraud." That means your government is in on it.
As more than 35 state citizen organizations now are using the most advanced search and big data technology to look into voter rolls, and cross-check them with churches, R.V. parks, fictitious street locations, they are concluding the office of secretary of state is corrupt, incompetent, or often both.
There's more at the link.
This data, of course, excludes the possibility (or should that be probability?) of vote totals being manipulated by the machines and software that count them. When you add that into the equation, the odds of a truly democratic, will-of-the-voters result become very thin indeed.
The question is, what can - and what will - be done about this? It's all very well to uncover the scale of the problem; kudos to those who are doing so. However, that's not enough. How do we stop it? How do we prevent such fraud from recurring in future? In particular, how do we use this information to verify the 2022 and 2024 elections? If we solve the problems identified in the article, will that be enough to ensure free and fair elections - or will we also have to decertify the machines and software previously used, and replace them with more accurate, less manipulable alternatives? Will the powers that be allow that to happen, or will they ensure that as many methods for electoral fraud as possible remain viable?
