Who’s Checking the “Fact Checkers?”

Let’s face facts: the U.S. Media, almost without exception, is in the tank and cannot be trusted! 

We have suspected it for several years, pointed to specific examples from time to time that confirmed our suspicions, and “speculated.” Now, we speculate no more. What happened late last week and during this past weekend proved what we have suspected and warned Americans for some time is confirmed. The Mainstream Media in the U.S. publishes little more than a bunch of grocery store gossip rags. And television news is little more than a batch of Saturday morning comic shows. There is NO truth in more than 90% of the media.

“The Case”

Confirmation of our suspicions came with the combination of two news events. The first was the video from the State Farm Center in Atlanta at which the Fulton County election vote processing operation took place. That video showed what happened the evening of November 3rd, the night of the election.

At one point in the evening, the counters and the GOP poll watchers were told the counting process was being terminated until Wednesday morning because of a massive water pipe break spill in the building. The video shows everyone headed to the door — except several poll counters. As soon as those GOP poll watchers left the building, the counters pulled five suitcases containing ballots from underneath one table in the room. They then began counting those ballots: tens of thousands of ballots.

This video and its revelation was a blockbuster that confirmed the suspicions of many about ballot manipulation. Election officials, Georgia legislators, and members of the Trump legal team and, of course, the Media went nuts. The vote fraud smoking gun had been exposed to the world.

But, wait a minute: the counting room vote fraud video did NOT reveal any wrongdoing at all. Here’s a story that gave the truth:

“Does security camera video show a Fulton County, Georgia, election supervisor suspiciously pulling suitcases filled with ballots from under a table after telling poll workers to leave the room? And did that election official continue to illegally count ballots without required monitors in a manner that calls into question Joe Biden’s narrow win over Donald Trump in Georgia? No, those claim are not true: Two high-level officials with the Georgia secretary of state’s office and a state elections board monitor each told Lead Stories that their investigations revealed nothing suspicious in the video. The officials said the ballots seen in the video were in regular ballot containers — not suitcases — and they had been removed from their envelopes and processed while news media and election observers for the Republican Party and Trump campaign were present. The media and party observers were never told to leave because counting was over for the night, but they apparently followed workers who left once their job of opening envelopes was completed, the chief investigator for the secretary of state told Lead Stories. The observers were free to return at anytime, she said. Georgia law allows observers, but does not require them to be there for ballots to be counted, she said.

The claims made at a Georgia state senate hearing by a Trump lawyer appeared in a video posted on YouTube on December 3, 2020, BY Trump’s campaign titled “Video from GA shows suitcases filled with ballots pulled from under a table AFTER poll workers left.” The video description read:

WATCH: Video footage from #Georgia shows suitcases filled with ballots pulled from under a table AFTER supervisors told poll workers to leave room and 4 people stayed behind to keep counting votes.

Gabriel Sterling, a Republican and Georgia’s voting system implementation manager, told Lead Stories during a phone call on December 3, 2020 that what can be seen on the video is normal procedure and nothing looks “bizarre or odd.”

Election workers known as “cutters” because their job was to open absentee ballot envelopes and verify ballots for eventual scanning and counting were dismissed for the night sometime after 10 p.m. on November 3, 2020, because their work for the evening had been completed, he explained. Those workers who remained were responsible for conducting the scanning portion of the process, since ballots could not be left without being scanned overnight. He said:

If you look at the video tape, the work you see is the work you would expect, which is you take the sealed suitcase looking things in, you place the ballots on the scanner in manageable batches and you scan them.

Frances Watson, chief investigator for the Georgia secretary of state, told Lead Stories during a phone call on December 3, 2020, that the ballots were in standard containers, and the work during the time in question had nothing to do with pulling ballots from under a table. She said:

There wasn’t a bin that had ballots in it under that table. It was an empty bin and the ballots from it were actually out on the table when the media were still there, and then it was placed back into the box when the media were still there and placed next to the table.

There was never an announcement made to the media and other observers about the counting being over for the night and them needing to leave, according to Watson, who was provided information by the media liaison, who was present. She said they just followed the “cutters” as they left.

She said:

Nobody told them to stay. Nobody told them to leave. Nobody gave them any advice on what they should do. And It was still open for them or the public to come back in to view at whatever time they wanted to, as long as they were still working.

In addition, she explained that the only ballots that were scanned after the media and other observers had left were those that had already been opened in front of these observers.”

The Results

There you have it. It was nothing more than another Trump Legal Team allegation that, like all the others, was a lie. It was confirmed: Georgia’s voting operation was by-the-book: President Trump lost the election fair and square.

But wait a minute: The story that debunked the revelation of cheating in the counting room WAS A FAKE AND CONTRIVED STORY ITSELF!

OMG: Yes it was. Instead of us going through the processes used to “right the ship” regarding Georgia voter fraud, let’s turn to Mollie Hemingway who broke the REAL story on Monday:

Big Tech-backed “fact” “checking” outfit claimed to debunk explosive evidence in support of Republicans’ claims of significant election problems at a Thursday Georgia Senate hearing. It didn’t. Not even close.

Newly discovered security footage from Georgia’s State Farm Arena showed dozens of ballot counters, media, and Republican observers leaving en masse at the same time from the ballot-counting area for Fulton County. After they left, a small remnant of about four workers began pulling trunks containing thousands of ballots from underneath a table with a long tablecloth and running them through machines.

The footage supported claims from Republicans that they were told counting had stopped for the night, only to find out hours later that it had kept going on. You can and should watch the 12-minute portion of the testimony from Jacki Pick.

On Friday morning, a group called Lead Stories published a “hoax alert” falsely claiming to have debunked the security video. The Washington Post, Newsweek, and other outlets followed along, criticizing non-leftist journalists for giving the video traction. In fact, none of the claims made by the Republicans were debunked.

Lead Stories’ “fact” “check” says government officials told them everything was fine with the counting, that the ballots were in “containers — not suitcases,” and that “party observers were never told to leave because counting was over for the night.”

Leaving aside whether relying solely and uncritically on government officials’ claims constitutes anything close to a “fact” “check,” let’s look at the claim that party observers were never told that counting was over for the night. In Lead Stories’ regurgitation of the government officials’ claims, only the people who cut open the absentee ballot envelopes were sent home, while ballot counters and scanners were retained and kept working — and no one told the press or other observers they were done counting.

Were Republican Poll Watchers and the Media Told Counting Had Stopped For The Night?

Georgia Republican Party Chairman David Shafer has consistently said that’s what happened at State Farm Arena, beginning hours after the election.

That claim, which he has repeated consistently, is backed by sworn affidavits from two Republican observers, who further allege they were kept an unreasonable distance from the ballots even while they were at State Farm Arena, making it completely impossible to meaningfully do their jobs. The video, which shows the room from four different angles, fully supports the claim that poll watchers were kept away from meaningful observation of ballot handling.

The observers say that they arrived for their observation jobs around 8 p.m. They say in the first half of the 10 o’clock hour, a woman with blonde braids who appeared to be a supervisor “yelled out” to those present in the room that they would stop working for the night and would resume in the morning. The Republican poll watchers said they asked Fulton County Elections Spokesperson Regina Waller questions about the status of the ballot count multiple times but that she refused to answer.

Lead Stories, however, says, “There was never an announcement made to the media and other observers about the counting being over for the night and them needing to leave, according to [Frances Watson, chief investigator for the Georgia Secretary of State], who was provided information by the media liaison, who was present.” While Lead Stories doesn’t name the media liaison, the media liaison who was present that night, according to the affidavits, was Regina Waller, the Fulton County public affairs manager for elections.

OK, so on the one hand you have sworn affidavits from observers saying that supervisors told ballot counters to go home for the evening shortly after 10 p.m. and a video showing everyone leaving en masse at that time. And on the other hand, you have two government officials promising that no one was told that counting was over. Is there any other evidence to consider?

Well, on election night, ABC News reported that ballot counters were sent home at the time that the Republican observers said everyone was told counting had stopped.

The Republican poll watchers’ story matches this election night reporting perfectly. And it wasn’t just ABC that reported counting was being delayed. Many media outlets reported on counting delays. See, for example, “Fulton County stopped counting absentee ballots for the night.”

Local NBC journalists on site that night independently confirmed “they were told counting was done for the night” and given no indication it would continue before the next morning. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution even reported of a “plan” to stop scanning ballots at the same time the poll watchers said things were shut down.

Summary

Why did Mollie Hemingway, who is a real journalist, have to do the digging to find the facts, put them all together, and give them to the World? The likes of the Washington Post, The New York Times, and the major television networks all got it wrong!

There’s no need for us to continue this diatribe. The false narrative has been exposed. And one of the Mainstream Media’s own pulled the wool over their eyes. And it wasn’t the Babylon Bee!

Oh, by the way, guess what: there really WAS wrongdoing in that counting room November 3rd, and it is critical for officials to take all the measures necessary to right the wrong and get the facts to Americans regarding the apparent abundant voter fraud in Georgia to the American people.

STOP THE ELECTION PROCESS UNTIL THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE.
