A significant reason for Dewey’s complacency was that the pollsters gave Truman no chance. Going into the 1948 election cycle, the president’s approval rating hovered in the low- to mid-30s (below Trump’s 35% approval nadir in December 2017). In the months before the 1948 election, the polls gave the challenger comfortable margins of 5 to 15 points.
Like Trump, Truman had lost control of the House of Representatives two years previously. Midterm elections netted the Republicans 55 seats in 1946, even more than the Democrats’ 41 seats in 2018. Like Trump, Truman had bitter opponents within his own party’s elite. Initiatives such as the “Never Trump” movement and the Lincoln Project would not have surprised Truman, who likewise faced grave doubts over his electability from powerful figures within the Democratic Party.
Truman’s crushing 303-189 Electoral College victory rode on razor-thin margins in a handful of swing states. A shift of only 3,500 votes would have flipped Ohio to Dewey; of 9,000, California; of 16,500, Illinois. A shift of a mere 29,000 votes of 10,661,000 cast (0.27%) in three critical states would have handed Dewey electoral victory. In terms of the popular vote (49.5% to 45.1%), Truman’s 11th-hour upset was the closest result since 1916.
Had Dewey simply had the wit to have semi-literate government employees fill out absentee ballots for hundreds of thousands of alcoholic, dementia patients, corpses, homeless, and insane, he might have avoided these headlines.
We’ve identified over 450,000 ballots that miraculously only have a vote for Joe Biden on them and no other candidate. If you look at Florida where things were done right you can see that that is how the rest of the country should have gone. But they also used an algorithm to calculate the number of votes they would need to flip. And they used computers to flip those votes from Trump to Biden and from other Republican candidates to their competitors also.
If you are going to steal… steal big. I guess. Then again, enough smoke and fire will be perceived, which is why Democrats risk destroying themselves and the legitimacy of American democracy (tenuous as it was during the Clinton-Obama years) entirely.
A county-by-county review by Just the News of accepted and rejected mail-in ballots throughout the state of Pennsylvania show that, when added up, the state only rejected 951 of 2,614,011 mail-in ballots this year, or a rate of 0.03%.
Fill out your ballot right or wrong, and it will count as a Democrat vote either way! We now see why the Democrats were so ardent about keeping the COVID-19 panicdemic going: they needed an excuse for mail-in voting to occur at absurdly high levels.
“Let me just give you one concrete example, not anecdotal, but concrete example of what we believe to be valid voted fraud in the State of Pennsylvania,” Trump campaign senior adviser Corey Lewandowski said during Saturday’s press conference. “I draw you to the attention of an obituary listed for Denise [inaudible] of Allegheny County. Born 9/10/1946, deceased 10/22/2020. Her application to vote was received on 10/23, the day after she died. It was then mailed by the county back to her on 10/24/2022, two days after she had legally passed away and then the ballot was received back at the county office on November 2nd, 2020 and when you go to the Secretary of State’s website today, it says that she voted in this election, effective November 2nd 2020, a full nine days after … passed away.”
As the old joke goes, Democrats prove there is an afterlife, because the deceased keep voting.
“How will they react? Observers stand behind the wall and try to see something through windows. They paste window with cardboard, while the police stand by. In some states these observers are thrown out for making a step to the left or to the right. This is all we can say about observers’ work there. In our country they stand leaning over the table watching vote count and criticize us afterwards,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
The head of state noted that he is looking forward how Western countries and the OSCE will react and whether they will demand that the U.S. hold a new election, as they demand Belarus do it. “Let’s see how the OSCE will react to this, and let’s wait and see the German parliament, as I said yesterday, demand a re-election in the United States. Today we see that the re-election is warranted based on all kinds of irregularities, even domestic legislation violations,” the president stressed. “It is very interesting to see how the Germans, French, these super democratic countries, and Anglo-Saxons and others will demand re-election.”
“But this is a shame, humiliation of Americans they could not have imagined,” the Belarusian leader said.
Democrats have ended democracy with this attempted coup and transition to tyranny (rule for its own sake). World faith in democracy will fall now that democracy ringleader the USA, which fought two world wars for democracy, sees itself have an election so corrupt that no one can take it seriously. Lukashenko must be enjoying his revenge on those who have criticized him for stealing his own election, further weakening the hold democracy has on humanity.
Remove the after 8:00 P.M. ballots, and Biden loses Pennsylvania. Biden 270.
Nevada, as of now, is well within reach for DJ and the Trump team — particularly when the California crowd is reduced. And a few of them may testify since a false vote is a very bad thing, with jail time if convicted.
Well, last night, we found that Wisconsin election clerks were told, and followed the direction, to modify mail-in ballots and fill in the blanks where witnesses left out critical info.
Lawsuits in Michigan and the other states are being launched, and discovery will take place.
I think D.J. has to swing one state. Actually, one electoral vote. Not only is this thing not over, but the Biden team must be sweating bullets.
The Left counted on being able to bully us into submission. For once however the Republicans have a fighter and a realist — not a religious fanatic, libertarian, or industry stooge — in their camp, and his team will fight this until enough of the truth is revealed that distrust in this election overwhelms faith in the announced results.
“In Antrim County, ballots were counted for Democrats that were meant for Republicans, causing a 6000 vote swing against our candidates. The county clerk came forward and said, ‘tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the votes.’ Since then, we have now discovered that 47 counties used this same software in the same capacity,” Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox said.
Looks like the poll workers were doing overtime here too.
Earl Mazo, a Washington reporter for the New York Herald Tribune, began his investigation after he said Chicago reporters were “chastising” him and other national reporters for missing the real story.
He traveled to Chicago, obtained a list of voters in the suspicious precincts, and began matching names with addresses. Mazo told The Washington Post: “There was a cemetery where the names on the tombstones were registered and voted. I remember a house. It was completely gutted. There was nobody there. But there were 56 votes for [John F.] Kennedy in that house.”
Mazo also found that Chicago Mayor Richard Daley’s charge that other counties were doing the same thing in favor of Republicans proved to be true—but nothing on the scale of what happened in Chicago.
In Texas, Mazo found similar circumstances.
No reason exist to suspect that Democrats have changed their stripes. Even CNN admits the 1960s vote fraud that started the JFK-LBJ disaster:
Now that 56 years have passed, more journalists have openly talked about the fraud in the 1960 campaign. In the 2016 CNN documentary Race for the White House, ex-Newsweek editor Evan Thomas noted, “As time goes on, it leaks out that, in one black district, there were more votes cast than there were people living in the district. It was corrupt.”
Narrator Kevin Spacey explained, “As the dead of Illinois cast their votes for Kennedy, there are more allegations of fraud in Texas.”
This was before Spacey got Blasey-Forded over touching some guy’s junk in a gay bar, where such things are normal. Complaining about that is like whining about getting hit in a mosh pit.
As the day wore on, Oregon State Police said authorities made two arrests in connection to the rally at the Capitol. OSP said they and Salem Police were aware of the “2 different conflicting groups gathered in Salem. OSP & Salem PD are not out to discourage people from gathering & exercising their first amendment rights, rather we are out to deter criminal activity.”
After nearly a year of riots with many deaths, two people get arrested and they shut down the protest. This shows us the unique nature of American totalitarianism: in our decentralized system, our tyranny is decentralized as well, harmonized by media and collusion behind the scenes by Democrats just as they did in the past with JournoList and were doing as recently as two years ago.
The new law empowers the Department of Justice (DOJ) to pursue charges against anyone who attempts to hack a voting system under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, commonly used by the agency to pursue charges against malicious hackers.
This could make it dicey for those who maintain those voting machines, since hacking is broadly defined as unauthorized access. To use a machine for which you have a legal duty, against that legal duty, qualifies under that definition. This means that lower-level political operatives may find themselves staring down felony charges, at which point they are going to start talking, since no amount of vig distribution will compensate for fifteen years in pound-me-in-the-ass prison.
The main list of persons who had registered to vote on or before November 1, 2020, was listed on an electronic poll book, often referred to as the QVF. As I understand it, the Supplemental Sheets were the lists of persons who had registered to vote on November 2, 2020 or November 3, 2020.
I observed that none of the names on these new ballots were on the QVF or the Supplemental Sheets.
I saw the computer operators at several counting boards manually adding the names and addresses of these thousands of ballots to the QVF system.
Easier even than finding dead or non compos mentis people, simply entering randoms who do not vote as votes for your candidate can prove effective, for a time.
The study found that 352 U.S. counties in 29 states managed to have 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens.
“In other words, the registration rates of those counties exceeded 100% of eligible voters. The study found eight states showing state-wide registration rates exceeding 100%: Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont,” reported Tom Fitton, president of the watchdog group.
Every hacker knows that if you visit a machine and want to return, you set up a ghost user with an innocuous name but lots of privileges. That way, you can just log in and pretend to be legitimate. The same can easily be done with voters, especially for names of people who exist but are unlikely to vote because they are in sleep wards or insane asylums.
“The MIGOP has referred a whistleblower case to the U.S. Attorney in which a city of Detroit employee was directed to change the date of receipt, in the official election record on ballots which had been received after the deadline,” Cox said. “This directive allegedly came from both City and State employees who were working at the TCF center. These allegations are highlighted by the city of Detroit’s attempt to block Republican poll challengers from supervising this process.”
It seems that our most diverse areas are most prone to vote fraud. Check out our FAQ on Vote Fraud for the rich history of this practice in Democratic districts.
Advisers expect the president to let his campaign’s legal efforts play out before conceding the race. One adviser, asked if he expected the president to concede the race, replied via text message: “Lol.”
Lots of converged agitprop made it into this article, but the basics remain:
Judges in Georgia and Michigan rejected campaign lawsuits on Thursday challenging vote counts in those states, and the GOP suffered another defeat Friday in Nevada, where a federal judge declined to change the way ballots are being counted in Clark County. Republicans asked the U.S. Supreme Court to order that Pennsylvania ballots arriving in a three-day window after Election Day be held separate for now, which Justice Samuel Alito ordered Friday night, pending further proceedings. They also have said they would pay for a recount in Wisconsin.
As with Bush v. Gore, this one will be heading to the Supreme Court. It will probably also head to civil court, knowing Trump, since there he can conduct discovery and send that information back to his legal team. The China-Democrat alliance will find itself chewing on subpoenas.
“Postmaster Rob Weisenbach directed my co-workers and I to pick up ballots after Election Day and provide them to him,” Mr. Hopkins said in an affidavit. “As discussed more fully below, I heard Weisenbach tell a supervisor at my office that Weisenbach was back-dating the postmarks on the ballots to make it appear as though the ballots had been collected on November 3, 2020 despite them in fact being collected on November 4 and possibly later.”
Finding enough fake voters proved more challenging for the low-level government employees operating outside of their job descriptions to fake this election, so the union employees at USPS did their best to help pad the vote for political nonentity Biden and his crypto-communist running mate.
Update: Antrim County has released new unofficial results that show Donald Trump took 56 percent of the vote Tuesday. Other Republicans near the top of the ticket did better than the President. Senate candidate John James received 57 percent of the vote and Congressman Jack Bergman took 60 percent. County officials say the initial problems with the count stemmed from a procedural error on Election night.
It’s just a glitch.
The Board of Elections Director in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Tom Freitag, admitted to Project Veritas that a poll worker violated state and federal law when spoiled ballots were thrown in the garbage outside of the election office.
Some of the ballots Project Veritas journalists uncovered had “SPOILED” written on them in permanent marker. Others had voter signatures on the ballot and/or the envelopes. The majority of them were pieces, as though the poll workers had also ripped them in various directions. There were a few full ballots though.
When your poll workers lean Democrat, they can easily declare as many Republican ballots “spoiled” as they want.
Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has ordered county elections officials in Pennsylvania to keep separate mail-in ballots that arrived after Election Day. The state’s top elections official already had ordered those ballots be kept apart.
No matter what the courts order, poll workers seem to have a mind of their own… a hive-mind.
“Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced that his Election Fraud Unit assisted the Limestone County Sheriff and District Attorney in charging Kelly Reagan Brunner, a social worker in the Mexia State Supported Living Center (SSLC), with 134 felony counts of purportedly acting as an agent and of election fraud,” the state said in a statement. “State Supported Living Centers serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Brunner submitted voter registration applications for 67 residents without their signature or effective consent, while purporting to act as their agent.”
They found some non compos mentis voters and filled out their ballots for them. In this case, Texas caught the cheater, but how many more cases slipped past elsewhere?
Facebook on Thursday shut down a group that claimed Democrats are trying to “steal” the 2020 presidential election — saying the page “delegitimized” the vote-counting process, according to a report.
The conspiracy theory-fueled “Stop the Steal” group had gained more than 360,000 members in its two-day existence — and was planning rallies to challenge election results — when the social media giant banned it, The Washington Post reports.
Funny how all the bad guys — organized crime, China, unions, Democrats, Big Tech, Big Media, certain large multinational corporations — have a single opinion on this issue. Wonder what was promised in exchange.
Given this failure to correctly predict the election, is it any wonder that a lot of Americans don’t trust the media to call the election? Or that they buy Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of fraud? Trust in the media, and its essential role as a neutral arbiter of fact, lies in tatters. A recent study from Gallup and the Knight Foundation found that 86 percent of Americans say the news media is biased, and 73 percent say the bias in the reporting of news that is supposed to be objective is “a major problem.” The bias is seen as ideological. Almost three-fourths of Republicans and 52 percent of independents have a “very” or “somewhat” unfavorable view of the news media, compared with 22 percent of Democrats.
The media works for one side and we now view it much as people in the USSR viewed Pravda: they report some of the facts, and some things that are not true, to advance an ideological agenda at all times.
Now, Trump’s election night tweets are being censored on Twitter as well, for pointing out what he said were procedural irregularities, like allowing people to cast their ballots after the polling stations had already closed.
When in one tweet Trump outright accused the other side of trying to steal the election, the label corrected his free speech by saying it “might be” misleading and is “disputed” – in other words, there was no proof at thats time that what he said was not true, but Twitter apparently needs no proof and was nevertheless meticulously suppressing his messages, disabling comments, retweets, and favorites. Otherwise, labeled messages in Trump’s timeline require action, i.e., clicking on the warning to be seen at all and can’t be retweeted or liked.
Another propaganda organ. Funny how the six big companies that control the centralized internet — Alphabet, Facebook, Apple, Netflix, Amazon, Twitter — seem to agree that one side is good and the other must be excluded.
By the time 4am rolled around, Trump’s leads in Wisconsin and Michigan had evaporated, helped in part by a 138,000-vote ballot dump in Michigan—all for Biden.
Now, you can be a partisan Democrat or a partisan Republican, but quite honestly, anyone with any integrity and half-a-brain can see there is something very odd about 138,000 ballots being delivered in one fell swoop, all for the Democrat candidate.
Our government entrenched bureaucracy went from staging color revolutions in other countries to creating an American color revolution so that the bureaucratic elites can stay in power.
Wisconsin Statute 6.86 provides that an absentee ballot must be signed by a witness, who is also required to list his or her address. If a witness address is not listed, then the ballot is considered invalid and must be returned to the voter to have the witness correct.
Instead, multiple sources tell “The Dan O’Donnell Show,” municipal clerks and vote counters across the state simply filled out witness signatures themselves. Acting on false and unlawful advice from the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC), these clerks may have inadvertently invalidated thousands of absentee votes.
Poll workers seem to be mostly Democrat activists.
Big Tech and mainstream media learned their lesson in 2016: Social media circulated stories that the mainstream played down, and people learned to get their news from friends rather than the TV tube. This time both Facebook and Twitter prevented users from sharing stories about the Hunter Biden emails — stories that originated in the 219-year-old New York Post, founded by Alexander Hamilton.
Total narrative control.
“RIGGED 2020 ELECTION: MILLIONS OF MAIL-IN BALLOTS WILL BE PRINTED BY FOREIGN COUNTRIES, AND OTHERS. IT WILL BE THE SCANDAL OF OUR TIMES!” Trump tweeted without providing evidence.
On the other hand, if he finds that China printed up a bunch of fake ballots, it gives him carte blanche to cut trade with them and make America self-sufficient, at which point we will come out ahead when the debt bomb finally pops.
Their report continues on to say that “according to SoRelle, visitors were able to enter and leave the facility where the votes are being counted without any identification check. The workers were apparently working in six-hour shifts, meaning they did not have a need for overnight luggage.”
We are told this was camera equipment. Then why no identification check?
Last night at the TCF (formerly Cobo Hall) where absentee ballots for Wayne County (Detroit) are being counted, a Ferrari, a van and a Chrysler 300 (I think) all pulled up into facility (large garage doors) with ballots inside vehicles. All three of them had out of state plates. This is an ANONYMOUS tip.
Also, they’re counting military ballots now. I heard around 7k.
Every military ballot has to be duplicated (re-written). I don’t know why.
Democracy becomes comedy. Democrats killed it good this time.
The City of Milwaukee reported record turnout of 84 percent Tuesday; 243,144 of 288,833 registered city voters cast a ballot.
Of the city’s 327 voting wards, 90 reported turnout of greater than 90 percent; 201 reported turnout higher than 80 percent.
As the BBC pointed out four years ago:
Why would one particular area, or one individual polling station, have a 90% turnout, while most other areas register less than 70%?
Keep an eye on the number of votes excluded as invalid. Even in countries with low literacy rates this isn’t normally above 5%.
And if there are more papers in the boxes than were issued by the polling staff, it is highly likely that someone has been doing some “stuffing”.
A judge in Michigan on Thursday tossed out a lawsuit brought by U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign in hopes of halting vote-counting in the battleground state.
Campaign officials for Trump have said they filed the suit to stop the counting in Michigan and gain greater access to the tabulation process.
In another setback for Trump on Thursday, a judge in Georgia denied a request by his campaign for an order requiring Chatham County to separate and secure late-arriving ballots to ensure they are not counted.
Anarchy in the voting places, with judges defending it because surely no one should have control.
The decision from Mary Hannah Leavitt, the president judge on the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, came through on Thursday afternoon. She ordered that all ballots received between Nov. 9-12 that lack voter information on them should be separated out and not counted pending further instruction of the court.
What a nice unreliable mess the American voting system has become. Traditionally, Americans distrust any form of accountability because we do not want a situation where the opposing party gets a list of people who voted against it; retaliation is sure to ensue. Increasingly, however, we are viewing the fact of totally anonymous ballots to be mere empowerment for massive fraud.
