There WAS Voter Fraud in Georgia: How Do We Know That For Sure?

Isn’t it odd that very few in politics will even discuss publicly the almost certain voter fraud that occurred in Georgia’s November 3 election? No one has ever hesitated to point to fraud in previous elections. What was different this time?

We are now in the era of “Cancel Culture,” Wokeness, Critical Race Theory, and the actual ownership of all usage of words that depict racism of any kind — real or perceived. And, folks, the ones who have unfettered and unilateral control and use of those words all have a “D” following their name: they are Democrats.

Stacey Abrams (pictured above) is this Democrat operative from Georgia that initiated election uproar in the Peach State. But sadly, it was not because of voter fraud in November of 2020. It was because of the voter integrity bill signed into law at the end of March by Georgia’s governor. Abrams went crazy, began playing the race card before the CEOs of large companies with a presence in Georgia, and even shamed Major League Baseball into moving their 2021 All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver, Colorado. Why? Abrams shamed MLB for even contemplating that game being played in a state that just adopted oppressive new voter restrictions. Major League Baseball complied, and an estimated $100 million of Atlanta revenue from the game itself and ancillary revenue was lost. And most of that money would have gone to African American businesses located in Atlanta.

We watched and listened to those election irregularity legislative hearings in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Georgia. One after another, voters in each state swore an oath and then provided hard copy evidence, personal testimony. Even some provided videos that proved voter fraud to some extent in each of these states.

Where’s the uproar for actual voter fraud? Where’s the outrage and the onslaught of demands from Democrat Party leaders to investigate to make certain there was NO voter fraud? Don’t hold your breath!

We all know about the exhaustive and extensive election audit that we’re told completed last week in Maricopa County in Arizona. Only a few tidbits have been “slipped” into public view, but they each portend bad news for Democrats in Arizona and others in Washington. At first blush, it appears that Biden did NOT win in Arizona. What does that mean? (To be continued…)

Uh-Oh! It Looks Like REAL Voter Fraud in Georgia

As the Georgia secretary of state’s office continues to investigate evidence indicating more than 10,300 Georgians may have illegally voted in the November 2020 election, the office’s chief operating officer reportedly defended voters for violating state election law.

“The reality is these are normal Georgians who are just trying to exercise their right to vote in a bizarre year,” Chief Operating Officer Gabriel Sterling reportedly told Atlanta’s WSB-TV, when confronted with an admission from one voter that he had moved more than 30 days before the general election but cast his vote in the county in which he no longer lived.

It was reported last week before Georgia certified its election results, President Trump challenged the state’s tally that showed Joe Biden winning the general election by 11,779 votes out of nearly five million votes cast. One of the more than 30 arguments Trump presented in his lawsuit challenging the election charged that nearly 40,000 Georgians illegally voted in a county where they did not reside.

Trump’s challenge relied on Section 21-2-218 of the state’s election code, which unequivocally provides that residents vote in the county where they reside unless they had changed their residence within 30 days of the election. So clear is Georgia’s in-county voting mandate that on Friday “FactCheck” confirmed the accuracy of this reading of the law by quoting the Georgia secretary of state’s voter registration webpage:

Enough Illegal Votes to Exceed Margin of Victory

At the time of Trump’s election challenge, in alleging widespread violations of Section 21-2-218, the president relied on information from the Secretary of State’s Office and the U.S. Postal Service National Change of Address (NCOA) database, the latter of which identified more than 100,000 individuals who had indicated a move to a new county before October 1, 2020.

Mark Davis, an expert on residency issues and voter data analytics, compared the NCOA data to official data from the Secretary of State’s Office and determined that approximately 35,000 of those Georgians cast a ballot in the county from which they had moved more than 30 days before the election. While a percentage of those voters may have moved only temporarily, perhaps because they were students or in the military — circumstances that do not affect a voter’s residency — with less than 12,000 votes separating Biden and Trump, this bucket of potentially illegal votes could have resulted in a state court tossing the election results.

Nonetheless, because Georgia courts delayed Trump’s election-challenge case, setting a trial on the matter only after Congress certified Biden as the victor, evidence of illegal voting was never heard.

As was reported a little more than a week ago, growing evidence indicates enough illegal out-of-county votes will eventually be revealed to exceed Biden’s margin of victory. Specifically, Davis re-ran the data in May. He found that more than 10,300 of the approximately 35,000 individuals who moved to a new county have since confirmed their move was permanent by updating their voter registration to the same address they had previously provided the USPS.

What the Voters Said

The Secretary of State’s Office told the Media in a nearly hour-long interview last week that its investigation into these voters is ongoing. Still, the lead investigator Frances Watson refused to provide any specifics concerning the investigatory steps being taken.

However, last week, after obtaining a list of the 10,000-plus voters who had updated their registrations since the general election, pursuant to a Georgia open records request, WSB TV investigative reporter Justin Gray launched his own probe, knocking on doors to ask voters about their moves.

In a Friday article, Gray reported on his conversations with two voters. According to Gray, one voter, identified as Jon Stout, “admits he did vote in the wrong county after moving just a few houses down the street but crossing the DeKalb County line.” Stout claimed he did so because he was not “able to update his driver’s license during the pandemic.” Stout, however, also did not update his voter registration, which he could have done online with the Secretary of State’s Office.

A second voter, identified as Mark Buerkle, told Gray that “he did move from Gwinnett County to Fulton but turned in his Fulton ballot at a Fulton dropbox.” “The fact is I live here, I voted here, I voted in this county. It should be legit, and there shouldn’t be any questions,” Buerkle told WSB TV.

When asked about this reporting, Davis stressed that he doesn’t like talking about specific voters, especially because it is possible the voter may not have even realized he was actually casting a Gwinnett County ballot. “It is up to our elections officials and law enforcement to determine who may or may not have violated the law,” Davis told me, “which is why they are conducting an investigation and why I gave them the data from my analysis.”

“Equally as important,” though Davis added, “I also want our elected officials to understand these are systemic irregularities that must be addressed.”

“The Story the Data Is Telling Me”

“Concerning Mr. Buerkle, I am sorry Channel 2 put him on the spot the way they did,” Davis said. “I have deliberately refrained from publishing the data from my analysis,” Davis noted, adding that “I had an understanding with the Secretary of State’s Office that it would not be subject to open records request until the conclusion of their investigation, yet here we are.” (Davis also required that the reporter sign a non-disclosure agreement before providing access to the data for review.)

“That said, when it comes to his residency, in particular, I only know the story the data is telling me,” Davis stated, and “November 2020, NCOA data shows an individual change of address was filed last year, with a move effective date in August of 2020, which indicated a move from an address in Gwinnett County to a new address in Fulton County.”

Further, “the absentee voter data shows this individual was still registered in Gwinnett County when he appears to have requested an absentee ballot be mailed to his Fulton County address in September of 2020.” Also, while this voter told WSB-TV he had placed that ballot in a Fulton County drop box two blocks from his house, “both the absentee data and the vote history data indicate the vote was cast in Gwinnett County,” Davis explained, adding that, if handled properly, Fulton County election officials would transfer the ballot to Gwinnett County.

None of this is to say Buerkle or Stout committed voter fraud. Stout apparently thought nothing of voting in a county where he no longer lived, and Buerkle seems not even to realize that, according to the secretary of state records, he cast a Gwinnett County absentee ballot.

Laws Don’t Matter If They Aren’t Enforced.

The public might also pooh-pooh these admissions as insignificant, but as Davis said, state election law requires voters to cast a ballot in their county of residence for a reason: Each county has unique issues facing residents, whether it’s taxing or which local or state officials will represent them. For instance, “When Mr. Buerkle lived in Gwinnett County, he would have voted in the Seventh Congressional District, but his new residence in Fulton County is in the Fifth Congressional District,” Davis said in the interview.

But even if the public shrugs at the significance of these revelations, Georgia’s Secretary of State’s Office, in the person of its chief operating officer, shouldn’t spin the casting of illegal votes as people “just trying to exercise their right to vote.” On the contrary, every illegal vote cast disenfranchised a legal voter who followed the law, including those who moved and undertook “the normal burden” of voting by lawfully updating their voting registration.

Then there were the Georgia voters who moved and, like the voters featured in WSB TV’s article, failed to update their voter registration — as legally required — in time to cast a ballot in the general election. The overwhelming majority of those 100,000-plus citizens followed the law and did not vote in a county where they no longer lived.

So, what we have then, is the Secretary of State’s Office defending the counting of the ballots of those who broke the law and even excusing those violations, while those who followed the law remained unable to cast ballots at all. One must wonder too how seriously the Secretary of State’s Office takes the investigation into the 10,000-plus residents if its COO frames those who violate Section 21-2-218 as merely “trying to exercise their right to vote.”

Lack of Enforcement Undermines Public Trust

After WSB TV broke the story late last week, reporters sought comment from Sterling and asked Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s communications manager for voter education, Walter Jones, for a statement. Did Raffensperger agree with Sterling’s assessment? And if not, would the secretary issue a comment condemning violations of election law and Sterling’s disregard for election integrity? Both media requests were ignored.

This approach is suspicious. The public needs to have confidence that the Secretary of State’s Office will undertake a full and transparent investigation of election irregularities. Sterling’s statements to the press last week demand distrust.

Sterling’s recent comments prove even more troubling when considered in context with statements a Georgia secretary of state spokesperson made to “FactCheck” late last week concerning the newly revealed evidence of the 10,300-plus likely illegal votes cast in the November 2020 election. Jones reportedly told FactCheck that “establishing a person’s residency is complicated and involves many variables, including where a person claims a homestead exemption and even a person’s ‘intent.’”

That is all true, but it ignores the reality that the more than 10,300 voters specifically at issue all made clear their intent to change residencies when they updated their voter registration records — albeit too late to legally vote in the November 2020 election in their new counties. Further, while there may be a few people on the fringes, likely, nearly all of the voters who informed the secretary of state that they had permanently moved to a new county did so on or about the date they told the USPS they were moving — which was more than 30 days before the November 2020 election.

Even More Disconcerting Details

Ironically, Jones also stressed to FactCheck that 86 percent of the voters Davis identified in-person “showed up in the polling location where they were registered,” implying some connection to their old residence existed. But as WSB-TV reported, for one voter, that meant just walking a few blocks to his old precinct in another county. Jones’s statement would also suggest that many of the voters on the list deliberately traveled a considerable distance to their old county of residence to vote.

Considered in context with Sterling’s comments, however, the worst spin came when Jones stressed to FactCheck that “federal law requires ‘individualized inquiry’ into each voter’s situation,” and that “calling these voter’s ‘illegal voters’ without making that individualized inquiry is a disservice.”

But then, when confronted by an Atlanta investigative reporter who undertook that “individualized inquiry” — and went two-for-two with voters who admitted they had moved more than 30 days before the election — the secretary of state’s COO derided the discovery. That was the real disservice!

Further, while Sterling was spinning this confirmation of illegal votes as just “everyday Georgians who are just trying to exercise their right to vote,” the secretary of state’s press person pushed the conflicting talking point that in-person voters “signed an oath that they resided where they are registered.” Absentee voters signed an application “saying that they still resided where they were registered.”

So which is it, Raffensperger? Are the 10,300-plus — and potentially up to 35,000 — voters who may have cast ballots illegally in a county in which they didn’t live “just trying to exercise their right to vote”? Or did many of them deceive election workers by falsely signing an oath affirming they still reside in their old county?

Summary

It is almost certain the vote tallies Georgia included a large number of illegal ballots. The specifics of their impact on the election results will hang in limbo — maybe forever. I think those who participated in this scheme that seems to have played out in other states as well were premediated. But how does one prove that? And, then, in this case, how could the fact that the November 2020 election results declared some winners did NOT win and some who did NOT win actually won?

Sadly, when all the dust settles and if a rigged election shows to have happened, Americans may discover they’ve been governed by a puppet government put in power by a rigged election.

Only God can figure what could be done to rectify the fraud. Personally, I don’t see a realistic way to “put the Genie back in the bottle.” And that means we have a “President” Joe Biden for more than three more years.

By the way: how will Americans’ attitudes about our government change if this election fraud is proven? Even more important: How can Joe Biden get anything in government accomplished for Americans if/when he’s labeled a “fraudulent” President?

OMG! I just thought of this: if Biden leaves for any reason, VP Kamala Harris takes the reins!

What’s In The Georgia Law & Proposed Texas Law that Suppress Minority Votes?

I’d really like to know the elements factually in the Georgia vote overhaul bill signed into law and the proposed Texas voter law that are actually points of “voter suppression.” If one listens to ANY news report from ANY mainstream media television, radio, internet, newspaper, or magazine article on this issue, the allegations of massive voter suppression are the key elements in each.

Let’s start with the Georgia bill signed into law by Governor Brian Kemp on March 31, 2021.

The “Peach State”

Here’s what USA Today had to say about the law signed into effect by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp:

Gov. Brian Kemp signed the bill on March 31. Certain provisions will go into effect on July 1:

  • Special ballots will be created for nonpartisan elections
  • Ballots must be printed in black and white ink on security paper
  • A cutoff date of 11 days before a primary, general election, or runoff election for mail-in ballot applications
  • A deadline for the issuance of absentee ballots at least 25 days before a federal primary, general election, or special election or 22 days before a municipal general election or primary
  • A Georgia state driver’s license number, ID card number, date of birth, and the last four digits of a social security number or another approved form of identification must be printed on the outside of an absentee ballot
  • Conditions for rejecting absentee ballots if certain requirements are not met

There certainly are other elements in the law regarding who can give refreshments for voters waiting in line, who can pick up ballots from mail-on voters, etc. But NOWHERE can I find anything even close to voter suppression. Yet, major corporations like Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, and even Major League Baseball publicly decried the law as “Jim Crow” and “stealing voting rights from minority members.” Stacey Abrams shamed Major League Baseball into canceling the All-Star Game from being held in Atlanta because of this law. That alone cost the people of Atlanta — most of who are African-American — $100 million in revenue those black business owners would have made during the event.

Here’s the bottom line on the Georgia voting law: It is NOT racist; It does NOT suppress the votes of any voter; in fact, it expands the ability of voters to have even more options of when and how to cast their votes!

Two Texas Proposed Voting Overhaul Bills

Democrats have referred to the pair of bills as “Jim Crow 2.0,” accusing Republicans of trying to suppress the votes of minorities. Here’s a look at what’s inside the bills:

What’s in Senate Bill 1?
  • Under Senate Bill 1’s provisions, a ban would be implemented on drive-thru voting or casting a ballot from inside a vehicle unless participating in curbside voting due to a disability. A ban would also be placed on overnight voting, requiring polls to be open a minimum of nine hours from between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m.
  • Election officials would also be required to install a video surveillance system that records vote-counting activities, with a Livestream made available to the public in counties with 100,000 residents or more. Those in large counties would also be required to install tracking software to monitor “all input and activity” on electronic devices used to count votes. Beginning January 1, 2024, equipment that does not disable or remove any wireless connectivity capability would be prohibited from use in tabulating votes.
  • SB 1 would also allow partisan poll watchers to observe election activity inside polling places and vote-counting centers as well as during curbside voting that takes place inside a vehicle. It would also make it a crime to deny access to a poll watcher.
  • In addition, voters would be required to include a driver’s license number or the last four digits of a Social Security number on a vote-by-mail application and the envelope containing their ballot. Individuals who help voters cast their ballot due to language or physical needs must fill out a document listing their name, address, relationship to the voter, and whether they’re being paid by a candidate or political committee. Those who drive three or more people to the polls would also be required to fill out a similar form unless all vehicle occupants are family members.
  • The secretary of state will also be required to work with the Department of Public Safety to provide data monthly from the existing statewide computerized voter registration list to be used for verification of citizenship status on voter registration applications.
  • Unlike Senate Bill 7, the original voting bill killed by Democrats in the State Legislature’s regular session, SB 1 does not include two controversial provisions. One would have created a process to make it easier to overturn election results based on claims of voter fraud. The other provision banned Sunday morning voting, which was popular among Black churches’ “Souls to the Polls” events during early voting in the 2020 presidential election.
What’s in House Bill 3?
  • House Bill 3 includes many of the same provisions as SB 1. In addition, it would make it a crime for public officials to offer or send vote-by-mail applications to those who have not requested one.
  • The proposals come as Texas looks to join more than 15 other states where Republicans who control the state government have passed laws tightening voting access rules. The push follows unsubstantiated claims from former President Donald Trump that the 2020 election was “stolen” and “rigged.”
  • Besides the election bill, other issues on the legislative docket include bail overhaul, border security, social media censorship, legislative branch funding, family violence prevention, limiting transgender student access to school sports, abortion-inducing drugs, additional payments for retired Texas teachers, critical race theory, and budgetary issues.
Summary

Have you heard what President Biden has claimed about not just these pieces of legislation in Georgia and Texas, but the pending legislation in multiple other states as well? He continually rants and raves about the racism, egregious suppression of minority votes, refers back to actual days of slavery, and even calls this a “return to Jim Crowe.”

Here’s the one thing that proves beyond ANY doubt that the Left is petrified of these bills/laws and other pending legislation that will reform states’ election systems: The sole purpose of each of these Republican pieces of legislation is to STOP THE EASY OPPORTUNITIES TO PERPETRATE VOTER FRAUD OF ANY KIND!

President Biden, in his speech to hardcore Democrats in Philadelphia on Tuesday, berated all who would give any consideration whatsoever to either of the two Texas bills and all those who passed and signed into law the Georgia bill:

Let’s be VERY clear: if any parts of any of this legislation actually IS a type of voter suppression or racist actions against minority voters, identify the specifics, confront Republican legislators with the facts, and negotiate changes in those parts. Isn’t that what makes this nation different than any other on Earth? Wasn’t Joe Biden “the” consummate legislator throughout his many years in the U.S. Senate? Wasn’t he the “Great Legislator” who prided himself on his ability to find consensus between differing lawmakers? Why will he and fellow Democrats not do so? And what is driving this obsession to paint pictures of lie after lie, misrepresentation after misrepresentation, and continually deride Republicans for these voter law changes?

“Reasonable people can disagree on anything. But unreasonable people refuse to consider the veracity of opposite opinions.”

President Biden campaigned with a promise to unite Americans. There’s nothing demonstrated on his part in a single piece of legislation he has put forward or supported, any executive action he has taken, any appointment to the Federal Government he has made that evidences any willingness to unite us. In fact, he takes pride in diminishing any and all who disagree with any of his actions and does so with blatant disdain.

If I didn’t know better, I’d think Joe Biden aspires to be a dictator! (Maybe I don’t know better…)

My synopsis of this entire debacle is simple: If anyone dislikes any part of any law designed to eliminate difficulties for all voters to cast their votes “legally” and refuses to address each alleged discretion for the purpose of reaching consensus, the only viable reason I can arrive at is they most certainly want to leave multiple doors open for the manipulation of actual vote casting and vote tabulation and processing.
