Fortify your election with SBF Bucks

leave a comment »

Or Zuck Bucks, as they were called after the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, poured $400 million into getting Joe Biden elected in 2020.

Sam Bankman-Fried Bucks just doesn’t roll off the tongue in the same way, even though he’s been revealed as yet another Democrat Party mega-donor, the largest individual donor to the party outside of Nazi-collaborator George Soros for the just completed Mid-Term elections, the money having been used by the Democrats for “get-out-the-vote” and various ballot-harvesting mechanics.

SPF pumped $10 million into Biden’s campaign in 2020 and then $40 million for the just-completed Mid-Terms, where they were used in the same way as in 2020.

In fact it never was just Zuckerberg or SBF. Take a look at this chart of Big Tech employee donations by political party in the USA and then not be surprised that the likes of Twitter, Facebook and Google (among others) have been acting as censors for the Democrat Party in recent years.

SBF won’t be back given the catastrophic bankruptcy of his ponzi crypto-currency scheme of FTC and Alameda Research (which requires a post all its own) and Zuckerberg’s fortune has collapsed by $100 billion thanks to his company Meta not being the Neuromancer extension of Facebook that he’d hoped for. Of course that still leaves him with $40 billion or so, but perhaps he’ll be forced to pay less attention to elections for a while.

You may recall that great TIME magazine story about how the 2020 election was “fortified”:

There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans. The pact was formalized in a terse, little-noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO published on Election Day. Both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain–inspired by the summer’s massive, sometimes destructive racial-justice protests–in which the forces of labor came together with the forces of capital to keep the peace and oppose Trump’s assault on democracy.

So the word went out: stand down.

But Zuckerberg’s role was much simpler, because the methods used with Zuckerberg’s $400 million were pretty simple:

The Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL – whose three founders are former co-workers at the Democrat-aligning New Organizing Institute) and The Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR – whose founder was formerly a director of the leftwing People For the American Way) passed a staggering $419.5 million of Zuckerberg’s money into local government elections offices, and it came with strings attached. Every CTCL and CEIR grant spelled out in great detail the conditions under which the grant money was to be used.

The CTCL had been a small outfit founded in 2012 with its yearly revenues from contributions and grants had maxed out one year at $2.84 million

Conditions? More like processes that this vast sum was poured into:

  • Self-described “vote navigators” in Wisconsin to “assist voters, potentially at their front doors, to answer questions, assist in ballot curing … and witness absentee ballot signatures,” Philadelphia got $10 million to hire new city employees (fresh from local activist groups) to go door to door delivering ballots. Since they worked for the election office, everything was “legal.” They bought radio advertising on Spanish and urban radio stations; “vote by mail, no need for any witnesses anymore!”
  • The promotion of universal mail-in voting through suspending election laws, extending deadlines that favoured mail-in over in-person voting, greatly expanding opportunities for “ballot curing,” expensive bulk mailings, and other lavish “community outreach” programs that were directed by private activists.

Especially in swing states, the rules were thrown out in the name of an emergency. In Nevada, the state rushed to all of the mail-in ballots being sent automatically, even though the Public Interest Legal Foundation had documented tens of thousands of dead registrants, vacant lots and commercial addresses on the voter rolls. Other states suspended their laws: Virginia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, New Mexico, Colorado, Minnesota, Arizona, North Carolina, and more. In Virginia, the law said that mail ballots had to come in by election day or three days after election day, but only if they were postmarked by election day. Virginia state election officials ignored the law and issued rules to accept late ballots without any postmark. They called it “fair.”

  • Unmonitored private dropboxes (which created major chain of custody issues) and opportunities for novel forms of “mail-in ballot electioneering,” which allowed for numerous questionable post-election-day ballots to be submitted. as well as providing another way to help ballot harvesting.
  • Temporary staffing and poll workers, which supported the infiltration of election offices by paid Democratic Party activists, coordinated through a complex web of Democrat-leaning non-profit organisations, social media platforms, and social media election influencers.

More detail on all this here. CTCL and CEIR are registered 501(c)(3) corporations that can be created for elections but which are supposed to be non-partisan.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity.

Does the following look like non-partisan spending?

Of the 26 grants CTCL provided to cities and counties in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia that were $1 million or larger, 25 went to areas Biden won in 2020. 

What are the odds that the Biden IRS will be investigating CTCL and CEIR?

As another article put it about those Zuck Bucks: They converted election offices in key jurisdictions with deep reservoirs of Biden votes into Formula One turnout-machines.

The 2020 election was not stolen. It was purchased.

Which election is stolen now?

with one comment

I guess Politico has become an alternative for those wanting to read about US politics but who are no longer very trusting of the traditional MSM – especially the NYT, WaPo and the three alphabet TV channels.

Unfortunately the same sort of people who work for those latter businesses also end up working for Politico. The bias is not in the particular media but in the minds of the journalists and editors, and they carry that virus with them everywhere that they go.

In my previous post I linked to a Tucker Carlson piece from Fox News about Joe Biden’s recent speech where – among other desperate claims – he talked about how it might take days to get the final results in tomorrow’s Mid-Term elections, and that nobody should question the result if that happens.

Tucker described this as as a “bizzare” take that “did not inspire confidence” – but I think that’s the Good Will take. It struck me as dangerous. For decades Western democracies, including vast ones like the USA, had no problem in deciding elections on election night, even when they were tight.

Only in recent years has this nonsense become more common, especially in the USA, and the reason is the increased amount of mail-in voting, which has been heavily pressed by the Democrats with the claim that it increases voting participation – and hence any resistance to it, like validating that the ballot is a genuine one from the actual voter who could not come to the polling booth in person, is “voter suppression”.

Thus the Democrat anger about the Georgia election laws being tightened up by the Republicans who run the state, in the aftermath of 2020. President Biden said the new laws were so awful that they weren’t just Jim Crow 2.0 but “Jim Eagle” (clumsy metaphor to say the least). Corporates were enlisted to attack the state by moving their business out and MLB’s All Star game was shifted to 95% White Colorado. As it turns out, Black voting numbers were up in the various Georgia 2022 primary elections, and by considerable margins.

So much for “Jim Eagle”.

But one of the other amusing things that has emerged out of the last two years is that the US Left can no longer attack such claims as “conspiracy theories”, because they’ve got their own. This should have been obvious to anybody who remembered the howls about the 2000 Presidential election (“Selected, not elected”), claims about dirty work with electronic voting machines (Senior Democrat representative and power player James Clyburn) in 2004, and of course the whole “Russian interference” screamfest in the 2016 election.

Yet the Democrats and their MSM allies are so confident in their powers of propaganda that they appear to be making the claim again, in advance, and sometimes in the same breath with which they defend the 2020 election as the cleanest ever.

The 2020 presidential election was rife with allegations of voting machine hacks that were later debunked. Yet there are real risks that hackers could tunnel into voting equipment and other election infrastructure to try to undermine Tuesday’s vote.

Or to put it another way…

Politico:
Anyone Alleging Voter Fraud in the 2020 Election the Democrats Won (LOL) With the Most Votes in History (LOL) Is a Big-Lie-Peddling Jan 6 Insurrectionist Ultra-MAGA who wants to destroy democracy .

Also Politico:
Election Fraud Is Real and the Vote Tomorrow Will Probably be #Hacked

Or to put it yet another way…. the Democrats are going to lose, badly, and Politico knows it.

Tomorrow is going to be lit.

“Stolen Elections” is now permitted speech – again

with one comment

And now not a conspiracy theory.

Or being an “Election Denier”, which is sort of like being a Climate Change Denier or C-19 Vaccine Denier – but worse!

Who says so? Why the Democrat Party of course, courtesy of Hillary Von Pantsuit herself.

My apologies for spoiling your lunch with the following image but needs must when the devil drives – and it is Halloween after all.

“Right-wing extremists” have a plan already in place to “literally steal the next presidential election, and they’re not making a secret of it,” Hillary Clinton says in a video recently posted to Twitter.

In the video, posted by the progressive group Indivisible, the former first lady, senator from New York, secretary of state, and Democrat presidential nominee looks straight into the camera and says, “The right-wing-controlled Supreme Court may be poised to rule on giving state legislatures the power to overturn presidential elections.”

Hang on: I thought the QAnon, Alt-Right Extremists had given up on stealing elections and were just going doing coups now? I mean that is what those hundreds of January 6 Capitol protestors are rotting in jail for a year or more awaiting trial for, no?

Nothing new here of course, since this pre-dates Hillary in the Democrat Party.

As the good folk at Powerline explain, what she’s on about is a case that’s coming up soon before the Supreme Court, Moore v. Harper, which will clarify this language in the US Constitution.

The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.

The Moore case itself is a lawsuit:

The Moore case arises out of a series of events in North Carolina, where the Republican legislature came up with a map of Congressional districts following a census, and the North Carolina Supreme Court held it invalid under state law as an “extreme gerrymander.” But does a state’s judicial branch have the power to overrule the legislature, on any grounds? The Constitution doesn’t say “prescribed by…the government thereof,” it says “prescribed by the legislature.” So there is a tension between what most people think is a good idea, and what the Constitution actually says.

Hillary is apparently connecting this to the fact that the US Constitution has a similar provision and langauge governing election of the president. They explain why that doesn’t work.

Still, it’s good to see what TPTB are now allowing people to talk about in public now, and of course the new Musk-owned Twitter won’t be shutting down this speech as “disinformation”. As far as the rest of the Social Media sites and MSM are concerned of course, I doubt they’ll be shouting this down.

Speaking of Democrats, corruption, the MSM and Musk, it looks like he’s taking the lead on showing what speech and debate is now permitted on Twitter:

And as always….

I’m shocked, shocked, to find this out about Ballot Harvesting

with 14 comments

“A new, fully updated edition of Steal This Vote—a rollicking history of American democracy showing that electoral fraud is as American as apple pie

That was the rave about a book written in 2016 by a Guardian journalist living in America. Naturally it’s not as promoted now as it was since it’s very, very important to not say such things about the US 2020 election – even by the Brave Lefties of The Guardian (or perhaps especially by them)

Funny that.

The big joke about ballot harvesting – designating people to go out and collect voter’s ballots and get them delivered to the polling booths – is that it’s been legalised for years now in California and has spread to other states.

As you can easily see, it’s a system that’s begging to be corrupted by the simple act of handing your ballot over to another person to deliver. So much for the secret ballot.

Oh, of course if you accept that the person taking your ballot – sealed in an envelope – won’t break it open and substitute their own, then it’s all good, at least from your point of view:

“In rare circumstances, if the voter has filled out the ballot and sealed the envelope certificate, the ballot broker will take the ballot and then steam open the sealed envelope,” the affidavit added. “The ballot broker will either correct any votes, if necessary, that were not voted according to their wishes or just throw them out.”

More on that in a bit

Even before that little bit of trust, there’s the question of the ballot harvester having control over more than just the act of collecting a completed ballot from a person who is fully compos mentis. It’s like the old joke about who watches the spies who watch our enemies (and us).

A Wisconsin investigation unmasked a sophisticated ballot harvesting effort targeting vulnerable nursing home patients in communities like Racine, Wisc.

Nursing homes you say?

I first had suspicions about the practice when the California Democrats passed a law called AB 1921 in 2016. They have super-majorities in the CA House and Senate, which means they can pass any law they like even if the Governor is Republican; they can override the Governor veto, but that’s moot because the governors have been Democrat for years now.

Before the law was passed, only a family member or a member of the household was authorized to deliver a ballot on behalf of a registered voter. But AB 1921 relaxed that rule, allowing others — including canvassers, campaign workers and anyone else — to solicit voters to fill out ballots and deliver them.

And then in 2018 a number of House seat elections in California switched to the Democrats after the GOP members held healthy leads on election night – only to see those leads vanish with overnight counting of mailed ballots.

Sound familiar?

Naturally because that link is to the Democrat Operatives With Bylines, the LA Times, they’re adamant – ADAMANT – that no cheating occurred with the process in the 2018 elections, even though they admit that the 2016 law “does open the door to coercion and fraud and should be fixed or repealed before the next election” – and then go on to describe how it was abused in a Democrat primary election:

In the final weeks of the race, complaints surfaced about aggressive campaign workers pressuring voters to hand over ballots on behalf of Wendy Carrillo, who ultimately won the race.

But that could never happen in a general election amirite? Do these MSM journalists even listen to themselves?

The scam and all its excuses has finally started to unravel, not in California, but in Florida, where a Democrat whistleblower has unloaded:

Former Orange County Commissioner candidate Cynthia Harris filed a sworn affidavit in late August with the Secretary of State’s office alleging that illegal operations to collect third-party ballots have been going on for years in the Orlando area where voting activists are paid $10 for each ballot they collect.

She described an intricate system funded by liberal leaning organizations that dispatch ballot brokers into black communities to pressure voters to turn over their ballots. The $10 fee per ballot is divvied up among the parties who help complete the harvesting.

No! Really? Tell me more. And let’s not ascribe any decency to the whistleblower; as with Deep Throat this revelation is all about personal loss:

Harris, who narrowly lost her election for county commissioner in August, described to Just the News her years-long knowledge of ballot harvesting in the black communities in central Florida. She even recorded a ballot broker coming to her home in 2017 to collect her ballot, and obtained the script that harvester was given by her bosses to make the pitch for a voter to turn over their ballot.

Yes, well, “oft evil will shall evil mar“.

As a result of this Florida Democrat’s sworn admissions, DeSantis’s new election crimes unit has recommended state police open a full criminal investigation into the whole scheme in Florida.

Recall that the claims of corruption in the 2020 Presidential election – in key swing states controlled by local Democrats – made famous by the research of the conservative watchdog group True the Vote and a documentary released earlier this year by filmmaker Dinesh D’Sousa called “2,000 Mules.”, were dismissed as “conspiracy theories” and then understand what’s going on here according to the admissions of a Democrat County Commissioner.

Democrat ballot harvesters either pick up blank ballots and fill them out “right,” or they pick up already filled out ballots – but they throw away the ballots for the “wrong” candidates, or steam open the envelopes to “correct” them so they are votes for the “right” candidate.

$10 per ballot in Black communities. Ballots just picked up in nursing homes.

Common practice in the Florida Democrat machine.

What are the odds against the Democrat machines across the USA not doing the same?

Voter Fraud?

with one comment

Naaaah, it’s a myth created by Republicans.

According to Gregg County Elections Administrator Kathryn Nealy, 231 out of the 800 mail-in ballots that swung the election, bore the signatures of the five same people who helped voters with their ballots. Furthermore, 1/3 of the voters claimed they had a disability in order to qualify for absentee or mail-in voting.

The vote harvesting scheme worked and Brown actually won!

What two characteristics do these cheats have in common?

They are black and they are Democrats.

CROMWELL ON TUREI

leave a comment »

You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately … Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!

And that just about sums it up.   Some would argue (including some who inhabit this blog) that Turei’s benefit fraud was a youthful indiscretion and that she deserves some credit for outing herself (before she was outed?).   But what I can’t countenance is her shear arrogance in parading the fraud as a badge of courage.    No contrition … rather an attempt to martyr herself as a victim of the system. 

But to my mind a far greater problem for her is her now admitted electoral fraud.   Benefit fraud and your are ripping off the taxpayer; electoral fraud and you’re challenging the very heart of the electoral process.   Many will recall Labour MP Reg Boorman, convicted of the same offence and stripped of his seat.   For years the Boorman name featured as a single page entry  in the Wairarapa Electoral Roll headed ‘Persons banned for Voting’.

Turei could now join him.   At the very least she should resign and resign now.

Updated 1:42 … Turei’s ‘out’ but ‘staying in’ … go figure.    Somewhat akin to being only a little bit pregnant.   Still, in the ‘Mad Hatter’ world of Green Party politics I guess anything is possible.

Winning The Popular Vote….

leave a comment »

…the Democrat way.

Long and loud they proclaim there is no voter fraud in the USA   And of course if there is, it’s all the fault of the Russians.

But hang on a minute mate.

Detailed reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett show optical scanners at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent, tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books. Voting irregularities in Detroit have spurred plans for an audit by Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s office, Elections Director Chris Thomas said Monday.

Funny thing is, all those 248 precincts were won by Crooked Hillary in a landslide.

Reminds me of South Auckland a few years ago in the days of fat Mike and KFC.
