CLOWN SHOW: Georgia Election Insider Gabriel Sterling Freaks Out and Labels Election Fraud Caught on Camera ‘Normal Ballot Processing’

GatewayPundit - Fri, 12/04/2020 - 14:15

This guy is just plain weird.  Gabriel Sterling somehow wormed his way into the election process in Georgia and as colossal corruption is being uncovered, he claims it’s normal.

Attorney Lin Wood tweeted out to Gabriel Sterling and asked if he indeed had a state of Georgia email address:

Hey, @GabrielSterling, you don’t have State of GA email??? How does your company, Sterling Innovative, make money? Did you or your company receive any of this $10+M grant? Implementation Manager??? What do you do except go on TV to deny the clear voting fraud in GA?#FightBack pic.twitter.com/01oSKXOjmB

— Lin Wood (@LLinWood) November 24, 2020

We then reported on Gabriel Sterling when it was observed in the letter referred to by Wood that his name was associated with a non-state email address – a gmail address.  We learned years ago (i.e. Hillary Clinton)  that when someone uses a nongovernmental email account to do business, they probably are participating in activities that they don’t want the government to know about.

Oh, and this account was involved in an $11 million grant to the state of Georgia that we believe needs auditing:

Whatever Happened to the $11 Million Given to Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for COVID Relief?

At the same time we were forwarded a little known video where Sterling admitted to helping setting up drop boxes and hiring far-left radicals to perform the election counting for the 2020 election:

WE CAUGHT THEM: Lin Wood Outed Mysterious Georgia Operative Gabe Sterling – Now Video Shows Him Admitting He Helped Set Up Drop Boxes and Promoted Far Left Activists as Absentee Ballot Counters

Then a couple days ago we reported that Sterling went on a rampage saying there was no corruption in Georgia while belittling Americans and Trump voters for thinking there was in an attempt to shift the focus away from him and Georgia  (really who is this guy?):

WTH? Georgia Election Operative Gabriel Sterling EXPLODES ON TRUMP VOTERS After Dominion Employee Is Caught on Video Downloading Files on Laptops

Unfortunately for Sterling, we can’t even keep up with the amount of corruption in Georgia related to this year’s election.  Yesterday for example, a video was unearthed by the Trump team showing Democrat counters in Atlanta pulling out suitcases full of ballots and counting them after sending Republicans home due to a falsely reported water main break (um, this is against the law Mr. Sterling).

But Sterling still wants to call it all a lie.  He claims there was no corruption in this year’s election and he shares another totally bogus ‘fact check’ from Lead Stories as in his Facebook page as support that this is all normal:

This guy is a clown show – how did he get there – what is he hiding – and why is he still there?

Hackers Break Into Alaska Voter Database – Steal Info on 100,000 Voters — Officials Stress This Had No Effect on November Election

GatewayPundit - Fri, 12/04/2020 - 13:59

Alaska state officials reported Thursday that hackers stole personal information from more than 100,000 individuals from the the state voter database.

Via Alaska Public Media:

State officials said Thursday that hackers stole personal information including birth dates and driver’s license numbers of more than 100,000 Alaska voters, though they stressed there was no effect on the results of last month’s election.

The hackers gained unauthorized access to data in the state’s online voter registration system, which was built and maintained by a contractor and operated by the Alaska Division of Elections, officials said in a prepared statement Thursday.

Republican Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer, who supervises Alaska’s election system, learned of the hack Oct. 27, his office said in the statement.

“I have some sad news. The state of Alaska was the victim of data exposure by outside actors,” Meyer said at a news conference Thursday. While personal information was exposed, he added, “No other election systems or data were affected.”

Officials said the flaw that exposed the data has been fixed, and Alaskans’ information is now secure, but it’s still not known exactly which records were stolen.

The exposed data includes names, birth dates, driver’s license numbers, addresses, party affiliations, and the last four digits of social security numbers.

BREAKING: CROOKED GEORGIA ELECTIONS SUPERVISER Filmed Pulling Out Suitcases of Ballots from Beneath Table IS IDENTIFIED — IT’S RUBY’S DAUGHTER! (Video)

GatewayPundit - Fri, 12/04/2020 - 13:35


Ruby Freeman and daughter and elections supervisor Wandrea “Shaye” Moss

Earlier on Thursday Cristina Laila reported on the explosive video that was revealed during the Georgia ballot counting at the State Farm Arena where crooked Democrats pulled out suitcases full of ballots and began counting those ballots without election monitors in the room.

Trump’s legal team showed a video from the State Farm Arena tabulation center when poll workers were told to leave at 10:25 PM.

A few “workers” stayed behind and were seen pulling suitcases full of ballots out from under tables to be tabulated!

This was the most explosive video of the entire campaign season!

We identified one of the operatives last night who was caught on video counting illegal ballots from a suitcase stashed under a table!

As you can see from the video one woman in a purple top was filmed helping pull out the ballots and then sitting down to count the ballots.

That woman has now been identified.

Local 11 News covered the story from the State Farm Arena that a pipe had burst.
(This later was proven to be complete fraud and an excuse to kick out the GOP election observers!)

Hat tip to Christina Diggins

One woman in the video is wearing a purple top.
She later appeared in the suitcase video!

The woman in the purple made a mistake and left her purse on her desk advertising her business.

Her name is Ruby Freeman.

And she made the mistake of advertising her purse on her desk the same night she was involved in voter fraud on a MASSIVE SCALE.

Her T-shirt says “Lady Ruby” and her purse says, “LaRuby” which is her company.
This was not a very smart move.

Her company is called “LaRuby’s Unique Treasures.”

It’s on her LinkedIn page!

Ruby’s purse was a hit and several fans wrote her on her LinkedIn page after they saw her and her purse on TV.
They then commented on her LinkedIn page.

Ruby Freeman still has an active Facebook page (as of 11 PM on Thursday night).

On her page Ruby Freeman brags about her “Shaye” being her supervisor.
It is clear from a video that was released that Shaye and Ruby are very close.

Here are a few entries from Ruby’s Facebook page.

Ruby made a post on Facebook on Nov  3, “Look at my Baby giving that look to the employees. Mommie is so proud of you. Supervisor of registration.”

And here is a closeup of the woman in question via a Getty image.
Her official name is “Wandrea Moss.”

Thank you Gateway Pundit readers for sending this information.

You can clearly see “Shaye” the woman in blonde pigtails removing suitcases of ballots from under a table after GOP observers were evacuated from the room and told to go home.

And it is clear from this video from The Hill that Ruby and Shaye are very close!

BREAKING HUGE: Trump Team Has Dominion Machine from Small Georgia County – Shows Votes Flipped from Trump to Biden

GatewayPundit - Fri, 12/04/2020 - 13:30

The Trump team has obtained a Dominion voting machine in Georgia.  The machine shows votes were moved from President Trump to Joe Biden.  BOOM.

Yesterday on the War Room it was reported that the Trump team has obtained a Dominion voting machine in Georgia:

BREAKING: Trump team now has a Dominion machine from Ware County, #Georgia with EVIDENCE of Trump votes being switched to Biden.

According to Fredericks, there were 37 votes that flipped in this small Georgia County on the machine.  However, this represents only .26% of the Georgia ballots.  When extrapolating to the entire state, this equals more than 14,000 votes and Georgia was stolen by only 10,000 votes by Biden.

This also shows that we now know conclusively in Georgia that the Dominion voting machines were flipping votes.  It supports our reporting that votes were switched across the country.  We were the first to report a month ago that millions of votes were being removed from the Trump column and/or moved to the Biden column based on an analysis of data from the election:

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Analysis of Election Night Data from All States Shows MILLIONS OF VOTES Either Switched from President Trump to Biden or Were Lost — Using Dominion and Other Systems

This news is huge because we now conclusively know that the Dominion voting machines were flipping data.  This supports our reporting on November 10 where we shared that millions of votes were flipped in the election from President Trump to Joe Biden.  BOOM.

What’s Going On with the Server Reportedly Obtained in Germany Related to the 2020 Election?

GatewayPundit - Fri, 12/04/2020 - 03:20

There are plenty rumors concerning the server obtained in Germany after the election.  Here’s what we know.

On the Monday following the election, President Trump fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper.  Christopher Miller, who serves as director of the National Counterterrorism Center, replaced Esper.  Esper held his own press conference in June to announce that he would not follow President Trump’s orders and protect the White House from Antifa and  BLM rioters who were burning down DC.

Without Consulting Trump White House — Defense Secretary Esper Orders National Guard NOT to Carry Guns or Ammunition in Washington DC

Then in one of his first moves on November 18th, Acting Defense Secretary made military special ops report directly to him along with the Secretaries of the Army, Navy and Air Force:

Acting Defense Secretary Christoper Miller announced Wednesday that U.S. Special Operations Command will now report directly to him, putting it on par with the service branches.

At about the same time on November 16th we heard from Rep. Louie Gohmert that people on the ground in Germany report that Scytl, which hosted  elections data improperly through Spain, was raided by a large US ARMY force and their servers were seized in Frankfurt.

We later posted more information we received from one of our sources on this raid in Germany.

From our source: Once they determined that this Dominion server was involved in switching votes the intelligence community began a search for the server and discovered that the server was in Germany. In order to get access to that server and have it available for use in a legal manner they had to have the State Department work in tandem with the Department of Justice. They had to request that the government of Germany cooperate in allowing this seizure of this server.

The appropriate documents required to affect that kind of seizure were put in place, signed off on, and it appears there was also US military support in this operation. The US military was not in the lead. But this helps explain why Esper was fired and Miller and Kash Patel were put in place — so that the military would not interfere with the operation in any way.

By getting a hold of the server they now are going to have the direct evidence of when they were instructed to stop counting. They will also discover who gave the direction to stop counting and who initiated the algorithm that started switching votes. The CIA was completely excluded from this operation.

A short time later Sidney Powell commented on the server but she didn’t know who it was who captured the machines:

But by the 21st of November the excellent reporter at Newsmax, Emerald Robinson, tweeted that she did hear that a piece of hardware had been secured in Germany:

BREAKING: a national security source confirms to me that “a piece of hardware has been secured” from Germany.

— Emerald Robinson ✝ (@EmeraldRobinson) November 22, 2020

We have heard from another source that the US does indeed have the server that was captured in Germany.

On Tuesday in Arizona we next heard that the US has the traffic and packets sent overseas during the 2020 election:

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: WE GOT IT! — Col. Waldron Confirms US Has a Copy of the Election Night Data ‘Traffic and Packets’ Sent Overseas to Frankfurt! (VIDEO)

Colonel Waldron also shared in Arizona that there were hundreds looking into the Dominion system.

Related to the capture of the server in Germany there have been lots of rumors about the whereabouts of CIA Director Haspel and a gunfight that broke out during the raid.  We currently have no information on either of these topics that we can confirm.  We also don’t know the location of the server that was obtained in Germany.

What we do know in summary, is that there was a server in Germany that was obtained by the US.  We also know that a team of military cyber specialists have the traffic and packets sent to Germany during the 2020 election.  This is good news for Americans who want to know the truth about the 2020 election.

Who Actually Believes This BS Story? Joe Biden Explains How He Broke His Foot in Interview with CNN (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Fri, 12/04/2020 - 03:00

Who actually believes this story?

Joe Biden supposedly slipped and fractured his foot while playing with his German shepherd named Major on Saturday.

But he hid it from the media for a full 24 hours.

Joe Biden’s team also tried to block the media by maneuvering a press van so that reporters and photogs couldn’t see Biden as he entered the orthopedic office last weekend.

On Thursday 78-year-old Joe Biden explained how he fractured his foot in an interview with CNN.

“I’m walking through this little alleyway to get to the bedroom and I grabbed the ball like this and he ran and I was joking running after him to grab his tail. And what happened was he slipped on a throw rug and I tripped on the rug he slid on,” said Biden.

Right.

Did Biden also beat up Cornpop in the alleyway as he walked to his bedroom?

Biden explains his foot injury:

VIDEO: The Full Six Hour Georgia Senate Oversight Committee Hearing on Democrat Voter Fraud with Witnesses and Video Evidence

GatewayPundit - Fri, 12/04/2020 - 01:39

The Georgia Senate Oversight Committee held a hearing on Thursday on the massive election fraud in the state.

President Trump was ahead of Joe Biden by more than 110,000 votes in Georgia on election night when all of a sudden Fulton County stopped counting ballots after a pipe burst.

As Cristina Laila reported earlier poll watchers were kicked out of the State Farm Arena tabulation center on election night after a burst pipe caused flooding.

We now know that a pipe never burst. It was all a lie in order to kick out poll watchers while a few crooks stayed behind to count illegal ballots for Joe Biden.

Newsom Warns Of Incoming Stay-At-Home Orders Based On Regional ICU Capacity

Daily Wire - Thu, 12/03/2020 - 22:20

Governor Gavin Newsom divided the state of California into five regions on Thursday and announced a new COVID-19 closures metric, which will be used to issue sweeping stay-at-home orders should ICU hospital bed capacity increase past a certain point.

Under the new system, California will give an area 48 hours before issuing a stay-at-home order should ICU bed capacity drop below 15% in a region. The regions include the Northern California region (765,000 residents), the Greater Sacramento region (3 million residents), the San Joaquin region (4.5 million residents), the Bay Area (8.5 million residents), and the Southern California region (23.1 million residents).

While no single region has reached the threshold to trigger a stay-at-home order, Newsom said in a press conference Thursday that each region is expected to hit the 15% ICU bed availability threshold by early December, with the exception of the Bay Area, a region the state of California expects to hit the threshold by mid-to-late December.

“The bottom line is if we don’t act now, our hospital system will be overwhelmed,” said Newsom. “If we don’t act now, we’ll continue to see a death rate climb, more lives lost.”

Once a regional stay-at-home order takes effect, it will remain in place for three weeks.

Newsom said schools that “received waivers” to open ahead of a stay-at-home order will be allowed to remain open, restaurants will be allowed to continue take-out and delivery service, and retail spaces will be allowed to remain open at 20% capacity.

Sectors that will remain open when a region is placed into the Regional Stay-At-Home, include:

– Schools that are already open
– Critical infrastructure
– Retail (20% capacity to reduce exposure)
– Restaurants (take-out and delivery)

— Gavin Newsom (@GavinNewsom) December 3, 2020

All non-essential travel is now temporarily restricted statewide.

— Gavin Newsom (@GavinNewsom) December 3, 2020

No regions have been placed into this Regional Stay-At-Home Order at this time.

Remember: this is temporary. Hope is on the way. Relief is on the way. A vaccine is coming — with first doses arriving in the next few weeks.

We can get through this — together.

— Gavin Newsom (@GavinNewsom) December 3, 2020

Earlier this month, ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, Newsom instituted a nightly stay-at-home curfew covering nearly 95% of the state. The governor’s office described the order in a press release as “the same as the March Stay at Home Order, but applied only between 10 PM and 5 AM and only in purple tier counties that are seeing the highest rates of positive cases and hospitalizations.”

Due to the rise in #COVID19 cases, CA is issuing a limited Stay at Home Order.

Non-essential work and gatherings must stop from 10pm-5am in counties in the purple tier.

This will take effect at 10pm on Saturday and remain for 1 month.

Together–we can flatten the curve again.

Newsom Threatens Conservative SoCal with New Strict Covid Lockdown Order in Addition to Curfew

GatewayPundit - Thu, 12/03/2020 - 21:44

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) on Thursday announced a new, strict regional Covid lockdown order that could be taking effect in Southern California within days.

Newsom targeted conservative SoCal with the strictest lockdown yet in addition to a 10PM – 5 AM curfew.

The new lockdown order will close virtually all indoor businesses, save for approved big box storefronts.

“We really all need to step up,” Newsom said. “We need to meet this moment head-on and we need to do everything we can to stem the tide, to bend the curve.”

Newsom said only schools with a waiver can stay open.

Mostly private schools received this waiver.

Another stroke of luck for Gavin Newsom since all of his children attend private school.

ABC 7 reported:

Newsom said that is expected to happen “within days” in Southern California and three other regions out of five in California. The remaining region is the Bay Area and that is expected to hit the threshold later in December.

According to Newsom’s office, if a region hits the 15% or lower threshold for ICU capacity, the following activities and sectors must close within 48 hours:

Indoor and Outdoor Playgrounds
Indoor Recreational Facilities
Hair Salons and Barbershops

Personal Care Services
Museums, Zoos, and Aquariums
Movie Theaters
Wineries
Bars, Breweries and Distilleries
Family Entertainment Centers

Cardrooms and Satellite Wagering
Casinos
Limited Services
Live Audience Sports
Amusement Parks

“If we don’t act now, we’ll continue to see a death rate climb, more lives lost,” Newsom said.

What Is Georgia’s Governor Kemp Going to Do Now that the Georgia Results He Signed Off on Are Invalid?

GatewayPundit - Thu, 12/03/2020 - 20:45


GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger certified the election results in November, giving Joe Biden the state’s 16 electoral votes.

“Working as an engineer throughout my life, I live by that numbers don’t lie. As secretary of state, I believe that the numbers that we have presented today are correct,” Raffensperger said during a news conference. “The numbers reflect the verdict of the people, not a decision by the secretary of state’s office or our courts, or of either campaigns.”

Raffensperger then took no questions.

Even at that time the recount appeared to be rigged because elections officials were not checking signatures and it was also revealed that the state instructed officials to report original vote totals.

Furthermore, only 1 election observer was allowed at every 10 tables.

Several Georgia recount workers, including Democrats, have described odd batches of pristine ballots with perfectly marked bubbles all for Joe Biden during the counts.

One Georgia recount worker went on the record in Wood v. Raffensperger and described an odd batch of ballots that stood out — pristine sheets with no markings that went 98% to Joe Biden.

The monitor describes how ballots that had been handled looked worn and had already been written on — except for a magical pristine batch for Joe Biden.

The recount worker said this pristine batch of ballots had a different texture and that the markings for the candidates were “unusually uniform” as if marked by a ballot-marking device.

President Trump tweeted to Brian Kemp to get tough after virtually zero ballots were rejected this election compared to a 4% rejection rate in years past.

Almost ZERO ballots rejected in Georgia this election. In years past, close to 4%. Not possible. Must have signature check on envelopes now. Very easy to do. Dems fighting because they got caught. Far more votes than needed for flip. Republicans must get tough! @BrianKempGA

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19, 2020

Trump tagged Brian Kemp again asking for the signatures to be checked.

Thousands of uncounted votes discovered in Georgia counties. When the much more important signature match takes place, the State will flip Republican, and very quickly. Get it done! @BrianKempGA

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19, 2020

But Kemp never did anything.  Instead, he certified the results as well on November 21st:

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp certified the state’s presidential election results Friday in favor of President-elect Joe Biden — but called for an audit of the votes.

These were big mistakes by Kemp and Raffensperger because on November 12th we had already reported that there was no evidence of any water main break on election night in Atlanta despite reports to the contrary.  This reported break was why counters were sent home that night:

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: More on Georgia Water Main Break Scam on Election Day – There’s No Evidence to Show It Even Occurred

Then today we found out that individuals stuck around in the Atlanta Center on election night after the water main break occurred and everyone else was sent home.  These individuals then pulled out suitcases from under the tables and kept on doing what they were doing with no supervision and no Republican review:

Wow, so now what does Georgia do?  How many thousands of votes were counted in Atlanta on election night after the water main break?  Will a real audit finally be performed to identify the real winner of the Presidential election in Georgia or will all the results be thrown out because of Democrat fraud?

Michigan’s COVID Shutdowns Are Legally the same as Martial Law

GatewayPundit - Thu, 12/03/2020 - 20:40

Restaurant owners have been urging defiance of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s shutdown orders. Citizens in Michigan have been bristling under a “mask mandate” even though the Michigan Supreme Court has repeatedly struck down Whitmer’s orders.

These orders from the Governor are not laws, however, and they are based on the broadest interpretation possible of her powers under state law for emergencies. Eight months into that emergency, the Governor still claims immediacy requires her to ignore the legislature and the judiciary, in order to prevent the crisis she sees with the data only she has. Some are arguing that this situation is not a ‘shutdown’ or a ‘mandate’ or ‘orders’ but, rather, the imposition of Martial Law.

Unemployment spiked due to the shutdown but it recently declining, and people are once again leaving the Wolverine State in search of job opportunities and just the chance to dine in. One resident of Lansing who wished not to be named due to his employment situation, said that he cannot find any venues to date or meet up with anyone, since all dine-in options have been closed at the dictate of Governor Whitmer. “I drive several hours down to Toledo (Ohio) in order to have a beer and a burger and a dose of sanity, even though they have a 10pm curfew.”

The legislature has sued in order to overturn the Whitmer shutdown orders, and succeeded, only to have Whitmer initially ignore the court order, and then say that she was shifting her authority for it to the health code, a change in legal authority but not in application, with still no reprimand from the court.

The neverending pandemic, justified by data that is closely held and not revealed, suspending much of the open records act to prevent public review, the Executive Branch of the Michigan government has operated like an occupying military force and, some say, the more proper terminology to define what is happening is Martial Law in lieu of the current phrasing “Mandatory Shutdowns.”

The traditional definition of “Martial Law” involves the military as an occupying force and as the people in charge. Others suggest, though, that the occupying power is merely whatever one is suspending the lawful rights of citizens, and that in this case it can be the Governor who enacts martial law, or this version of martial law which has a more appealing name to the public.

The government has been notorious for the use of euphemisms to hide the application of its power. The term “collateral damage” is often used to verbally hide the reality of innocents being killed from a military action. The federal government has been especially adept at hiding its abuses with language.

The politicization of language often involves describing things in the most persuasive way possible, instead of accurately depicting the underlying issue. On the left, “Hate speech” is used as a cover for left-wing censorship. On the right, “Family values” is often used to describe a social conservative political agenda. There are long-running debates about whether abortion policy should be described as pro-life/anti-abortion versus pro-choice/pro-abortion and many other similar positional framings.

The mainstream media, however, is perfectly content to only describe shutdowns as what the government calls them, and not describing what they are: the suspension of most fundamental rights of Americans. The shutdowns in Michigan have involved the suspension of the freedom of assembly, the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, the freedom of movement. These suspensions are being challenged in court, even by Churches and religious private schools unwilling to accept a masking requirement, but rarely reported on. And when covered, they are reported as an issue of health, not of rights, and of weighing rights against the numbers provided by the imposing occupying force.

Could the Governor suspend the courts if another decision did not go their way? All indications say yes. Could the Governor shoot dissidents in the streets for defying mandates? Nothing indicates she cannot. Whether she would is different than whether she could, given the assumption of total authority by one person who refuses to abide by, and instead works around, state Supreme Court decisions.

Notably Whitmer acted, prior to the COVID crisis, to work around and ignore the legislature, which she once served in, when crafting state budgets. When the Republican-led legislature passed a budget her first year that she did not like, she simply rewrote it the next day using powers she arguably lacked. The suspension of the legislature’s powers started before COVID, and were simply accelerated under the usable COVID crisis.

Some contend that this is just politics, and not reaching the level of “Martial Law.”

The Supreme Court in the Duncan decision from 1946 had this to say about the lack of definition, and specifically the lack of a military connection, for the term “Martial Law”:

If a power thus to obliterate the judicial system of Hawaii can be found at all in the Organic Act, it must be inferred from provision for placing the Territory under ‘martial law.’ But the term ‘martial law’ carries no precise meaning. The Constitution does not refer to ‘martial law’ at all and no Act of Congress has defined the term. It has been employed in various ways by different people and at different times. By some it has been identified as ‘military law’ limited to members of, and those connected with, the armed forces. Others have said that the term does not imply a system of established rules but denotes simply some kind of day to day expression of a General’s will dictated by what he considers the imperious necessity of the moment.

In March Whitmer said she was not calling for martial law. She said that clearly she was not doing so because she only wanted a two-week shutdown.

WHERE’S BILL BARR? — We Got Your Voter Fraud AG Barr — It’s On Video and They Attempted to Steal Georgia with It! — HOW ABOUT A FEW ARRESTS?

GatewayPundit - Thu, 12/03/2020 - 20:29

AWOL US Attorney General Bill Barr told the Associated Press on Tuesday that the he had not seen evidence of widespread voter fraud that would change the outcome of the 2020 election.

Barr claimed that the FBI has followed up on specific complaints of voter fraud yet they have uncovered no evidence that would change the outcome.

The Trump campaign responded to the AWOL AG on his ridiculous statement.

Trump Legal Team Slams Bill Barr Comments on Voter Fraud, ‘There Hasn’t Been Any Semblance of a DOJ Investigation’

So we got your fraud, Bill Barr.

As reported earlier by Cristina Laila Georgia Senate Oversight Committee held a hearing on Thursday on the massive election fraud in the state.

President Trump was ahead of Joe Biden by more than 110,000 votes in Georgia on election night when all of a sudden Fulton County stopped counting ballots after a pipe burst.

Poll watchers were kicked out of the State Farm Arena tabulation center on election night after a burst pipe caused flooding.

We now know that a pipe never burst. It was all a lie in order to kick out poll watchers while a few crooks stayed behind to count illegal ballots for Joe Biden.

Trump’s legal team showed a video from the State Farm Arena tabulation center when poll workers were told to leave at 10:25 PM.

A few “workers” stayed behind and were seen pulling suitcases full of ballots out from under tables to be tabulated!

They were caught cheating!

BOOM: President Trump Is On Target In Wisconsin – Ballots Identified in Pristine Condition Similar to Fraudulent Ballots in Georgia and Michigan

GatewayPundit - Thu, 12/03/2020 - 20:15

President Trump’s team’s recent lawsuit in Wisconsin must be over the target. 

Is this why a Madison, Wisconsin Attorney pushed back and threatened Gateway Pundit after our reporting on absentee and ‘indefinitely confined’ ballots in Wisconsin?

A good auditor, inspector, attorney or investigator knows that the people who scream the loudest often times are the ones who have things to hide.  They don’t want you to audit their work because they don’t want to get caught.  Is this why Madison, Wisconsin attorney Mike Haas reacted with threats to our post about suspicious absentee and ‘indefinitely confined’ ballots in Dane county?  Time will tell.

We shared last week about the absentee and ‘Indefinitely Confined’ (IC) ballots observed during a recount in Dane County held after the 2020 election.  Thousands of ballots were observed during the recount which were labeled as IC and absentee that were suspicious.

Thousands of IC votes were observed by recount watchers in Dane County that were in pristine condition rather than being folded or showing any sign of wear and tear.  The same was observed in thousands of absentee votes with the initials of ‘MLW’ on them.

Confirmed: The Number of ‘Indefinitely Confined’ Wisconsin Voters Who Can Vote without IDs Increased from 60,000 in 2016 to Over 200,000 in 2020

The day after our post above, President Trump filed a suit in Wisconsin addressing these very ballots in question.  A report at Redstate summarized President Trump’s filing on Tuesday:

What was filed yesterday by the Campaign was the next step in the process of contesting the outcome of an election under Wisconsin law, which follows the completion of the recount requested by the Trump Campaign under Wisconsin law given the narrow margin of the outcome of the election.

This Complaint initiating the Election Contest challenges several categories of ballots that were counted by the Election Boards of Dane and Milwaukee Counties during the recount process, all of which were the subject of objections by the Trump Campaign during the recount process.  The objections were denied by the Election Boards, and the ballots were included in the final tabulated results.  Specifically, the Campaign makes the following distance claims with respect to alleged invalid ballots:

  1.  Whether absentee ballots issued in-person to voters by municipal clerks’ offices in Milwaukee [and] Dane Counties without the required written applications are illegal and invalid.
  2. Whether absentee ballots accompanied by incomplete certifications or on which municipal clerks added missing information in contravention of Wisconsin law are illegal and invalid.
  3. Whether absentee ballots cast by electors claiming “Indefinite Confinement” status, which status was claimed on or after March 25, 2020, for which there was no voter identification provided are illegal and invalid.
  4. Whether stationing poll workers, receiving ballots, witnessing ballot certifications, and other clerk’s office activities in Madison’s “Democracy in the Park” events complied with Wisconsin Election laws.
  5. Whether relief by drawdown is appropriate for legal violations committed at the “Democracy in the Park” events.

The Complaint alleges that over 170,000 absentee ballots were accepted and counted in the two counties when the voter did not fill out an application for an absentee ballot.

The Complaint alleges that over 5,500 absentee ballots were accepted and counted when a person in the Election Clerk’s office filled out some of the information required on the outside of the ballot envelope.

More than 28,000 votes are claimed to have been cast by individuals who did not meet the definition of “indefinite confinement” and thereby avoided the otherwise mandatory voter identification requirement.

Finally, it alleges that more than 17,000 ballots were received and later counted at “Democracy In The Park” events.

Redstate continues on the President’s case:

There is an absentee ballot application form issued by the State of Wisconsin.  It would seem reasonable to presume that the statute’s reference to a “written application” is a reference to this form.  Further, the statute directs the Clerk to retain each such absentee ballot application until such time as destruction is authorized by law.

But in the President’s case:

Yet the complaint alleges that the Clerks’ offices in Dane and Milwaukee counties issued absentee ballots in-person and interpreted the “application” requirement to be satisfied in another fashion.

[I]n both Dane and Milwaukee Counties, the Canvassing Boards found that the Clerk’s receipt of form EL-122 (the “Envelope” in which the absentee ballot is placed by the elector after it has already been received by the elector and after it has been completed) was sufficient to satisfy the statutory written application requirement.

It is hard to logically conceptualize the claim that the envelope in which a ballot is RETURNED can constitute the “application” that must be submitted before a ballot can first be provided.

But the Canvassing Boards of Dane and Milwaukee Counties disallowed the objections from poll watchers in the recount process.

The problem with this logic for these Canvassing Boards is that we now know two additional important items of information:

  1. One is what we shared in our posts last week.  The ballots that raised the most suspicion during the recount in Dane County to the poll watchers were the ballots in pristine condition.  Thousands of IC ballots and thousands of ballots labeled with the initials of ‘MLW’ were counted that clearly were never mailed because they were not folded or in any way worn or torn.
  2. Truckloads of completed ballots were reported flowing out of New York before and after the election and one truck driver in Wisconsin reported that hundreds of thousands of ballots were delivered after the election to Wisconsin.

“I Couldn’t Go to My Grave Knowing What I Knew” – WOW! Election Whistleblower Explains Why He Came Forward on Wisconsin Democrat Vote Fraud (VIDEO)

And now we know a woman in Michigan identified ballots being counted that were in sequential order:

WHAT’S GOING ON? Truck Loads of Ballots Coming Out of New York Reported Yesterday – Tonight a Michigan Poll Worker Reports on Ballots Received in Sequential Order

And now we find out ballots in Georgia were pulled out from under tables after the Republicans were removed from the Atlanta counting facility after a reported water main break (that never was) left the room with just Democrats:

HUGE! Video Footage From Georgia Shows Suitcases Filled with Ballots Pulled From Under Table AFTER Supervisor Told GOP Poll Workers to Leave Tabulation Center

So we have sent questions to Mike Haas, who also happened to be a leader in the Wisconsin Election Board in his prior job, related to his threats related to our prior posts.  Among many questions, we asked if MLW (the person who supposedly initialed the absentee ballots in Wisconsin that were identified in pristine condition) know how many counted ballots are associated with her name?

This is why President Trump has filed his lawsuit in Wisconsin.

BREAKING: Wisconsin Supreme Court Sends Trump Fraud Case to Lower Court — Why This Is Good News for Team Trump!

GatewayPundit - Thu, 12/03/2020 - 19:50

The Wisconsin Supreme Court on Thursday refused to hear President Donald Trump’s lawsuit alleging widespread voter fraud in the state’s presidential election.

President Trump was winning in a landslide on Election Day but that changed after Democrats dumped 143,379 illegal ballots at 3:42 in the morning for Joe Biden.

Democrats and the media are completely fine with this outrageous fraud.

The good news from this lawsuit today — from a trusted friend in the Trump circle — is that the court did not rule on merit.  The case was sent back to a lower court for a ruling.

This is outstanding news for Team Trump.

Along with the outrageous fraud in Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, Michigan and Pennsylvania — this is starting to turn on the Democrat Party.

America is not a banana republic as much as the DNC wishes it were so.

America will not stand for this historic election fraud.  It will not happen.

Via the AP:

Chief Justice Patience Roggensack, in her dissent, said she would have taken the case and referred it to lower courts for factual findings, which could then be reported back to the Supreme Court for a ruling.

Conservative Justice Rebecca Bradley wrote that the court “forsakes its duty” by not determining whether elections officials complied with the law and the inaction will undermine the public’s confidence in elections.

“While some will either celebrate or decry the court’s inaction based upon the impact on their preferred candidate, the importance of this case transcends the results of this particular election,” she wrote in a dissent joined by Roggensack and Justice Annette Ziegler. “The majority’s failure to act leaves an indelible stain on our most recent election.”

Trump’s lawsuit challenged procedures that have been in place for years and never been found to be illegal.

He claimed there were thousands of absentee ballots without a written application on file. He argued that the electronic log created when a voter requests a ballot online — the way the vast majority are requested — doesn’t meet the letter of the law…

…Swing Justice Brian Hagedorn joined three liberal justices in denying the petition without weighing in on Trump’s allegations.

Hagedorn said the law was clear that Trump must start his lawsuit in lower courts where factual disputes can be worked out…

…Trump also challenged absentee ballots where voters declared themselves to be “indefinitely confined,” a status that exempts them from having to show photo identification to cast a ballot, and one that was used much more heavily this year due to the pandemic. The Wisconsin Supreme Court in March ruled that it was up to individual voters to determine their status.

Two other lawsuits filed by conservatives are still pending with the Wisconsin Supreme Court court seeking to invalidate ballots.

Remembering The Ever-Relevant Words Of Walter E. Williams

Daily Wire - Thu, 12/03/2020 - 19:46

Walter E. Williams died on the morning of Wednesday December 2nd, having taught “his final class at George Mason University” the night before. In addition to being a Professor of Economics, Williams was also well known and respected as a columnist and author. Daily Wire Editor Emeritus, Ben Shapiro, described Williams as “an amazing person and thinker.”

Williams’ thoughts on subjects such as the economy, socialism, and racism demonstrated a level of insight which should never be underestimated or ignored. Here is a modest collection of his words which, regardless of when they were spoken or written, will remain hugely relevant in the years to come. To remember the great Walter Williams, remember his words.

Government, Theft and Accountability

“How stupid is it of us to ask those who brought us ‘affordable’ housing to now turn their attention to bringing us ‘affordable’ health care?”

“The moral tragedy that has befallen Americans is our belief that it is okay for government to forcibly use one American to serve the purposes of another — that in my book is a working definition of slavery.”

“The recognition of the fact that Congress has no resources of its own forces us to acknowledge that the only way Congress can give one American one dollar is to first, through intimidation, threats, and coercion, confiscate that dollar from some other American. If a private citizen did the same thing that Congress does, we would call it an immoral act — namely theft. Acts such as theft that are immoral when done privately do not become moral when done collectively. The moral tragedy that has befallen Americans is our belief that it is okay for government to forcibly use one American to serve the purposes of another.”

“Democracy and liberty are not the same. Democracy is little more than mob rule, while liberty refers to the sovereignty of the individual.”

“It’s government people, not rich people, who have the power to coerce and make our lives miserable. Coercive power goes a long way toward explaining political corruption.”

“The real problem is that workers are not so much underpaid as they are under-skilled. And the real task is to help those people become skilled. Congress cannot do this simply by declaring that as of such-and-such a date, everybody’s productive output is now worth $7.25 per hour. This makes about as much sense, and does just about as much harm, as doctors ‘curing’ patients simply by declaring that they are cured.”

“You men win your way into office and retain that office essentially by promising some Americans that you will give them the fruits of another man’s labor. You also win office by promising one group of Americans that they will be given a right or privilege that will be denied other Americans.”

“There are many farm handouts; but let’s call them what they really are: a form of legalized theft. Essentially, a congressman tells his farm constituency, ‘Vote for me. I’ll use my office to take another American’s money and give it to you.’”

“Believing that presidents have taxing and spending powers leaves Congress less politically accountable for our deepening economic quagmire. Of course, if you’re a congressman, not being held accountable is what you want.”

“Three-fifths to two-thirds of the federal budget consists of taking property from one American and giving it to another. Were a private person to do the same thing, we’d call it theft. When government does it, we euphemistically call it income redistribution, but that’s exactly what thieves do — redistribute income. Income redistribution not only betrays the founders’ vision, it’s a sin in the eyes of God.”

Race and Discrimination

“But I think that the Democrats have been very successful in portraying themselves as the caring people, when if you look at the effects of the Democratic Party on black people I think it’s horrible, it’s horrendous. For example, if you ask the question, ‘In what cities do blacks live under the worst conditions — in terms of crime, rotten education, poor services,’ — these are the very cities that have been run for decades by Democrats. I don’t care whether you are talking about Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Chicago, or Detroit, it’s all been Democrats. And then on top of it, it’s been black Democrats! That is, again, if you look at where blacks live under the most horrible conditions, it’s in cities where a black is the mayor, a black is the chief of police and a black is the superintendent of schools.”

“First, weaken the black family, but don’t blame it on individual choices. You have to preach that today’s weak black family is a legacy of slavery, Jim Crow and racism. The truth is that black female-headed households were just 18% of households in 1950, as opposed to about 68% today. In fact, from 1890 to 1940, the black marriage rate was slightly higher than that of whites… In New York City, in 1925, 85% of black households were two-parent households… Disgustingly, black politicians, civil rights leaders, liberals and the president are talking nonsense about ‘having a conversation about race.’ That’s beyond useless. Tell me how a conversation with white people is going to stop black predators from preying on blacks. How is such a conversation going to eliminate the 75% illegitimacy rate? What will such a conversation do about the breakdown of the black family… Only black people can solve our problems.”

“Discrimination is simply the act of choice. Scarcity requires us to choose; scarcity is the cause of discrimination!”

“Employer substitution of higher-skilled for lower-skilled workers is not the only effect of the minimum wage law. It also gives employers an economic incentive to make other changes: substitute machines for labor; change production techniques; relocate overseas; and eliminate certain jobs altogether. The substitution of automatic dishwashers for hand washing, and automatic tomato-picking machines for manual pickers, are examples of the substitution of machines for labor in response to higher wages.”

“The law-abiding black citizen who is passed up by a taxi, refused pizza delivery, or stopped by the police can rightfully feel a sense of injustice and resentment. But the bulk of those feelings should be directed at those who have made race synonymous with higher rates of criminal activity rather than the taxi driver or pizza deliverer who is trying to earn a living and avoid being a crime victim.”

“How much of a barrier to self-improvement is discrimination? What kinds of tools are in the ready grasp of those subjected to it? Surely one doesn’t want to sit around waiting for the end to discrimination.”

Economics, Socialism and Capitalism

“Some say it’s wrong to profit from the misfortune of others. I ask my students whether they’d support a law against doing so. But I caution them with some examples. An orthopedist profits from your misfortune of having broken your leg skiing. When there’s news of a pending ice storm, I doubt whether it saddens the hearts of those in the collision repair business. I also tell my students that I profit from their misfortune — their ignorance of economic theory.”

“Social Security is unsustainable because it is not meeting the first order condition of a Ponzi scheme, namely expanding the pool of suckers.”

“This is why socialism is evil. It employs evil means, coercion or taking the property of one person, to accomplish good ends, helping one’s fellow man. Helping one’s fellow man in need, by reaching into one’s own pockets, is a laudable and praiseworthy goal. Doing the same through coercion and reaching into another’s pockets has no redeeming features and is worthy of condemnation.”

“Socialism promises a utopia that sounds good, but those promises are never realized. It most often results in massive human suffering. Capitalism fails miserably when compared with a heaven or utopia promised by socialism. But any earthly system is going to come up short in such a comparison. Mankind must make choices among alternative economic systems that actually exist.”

“It turns out that for the common man capitalism, with all of its alleged shortcomings, is superior to any system yet devised to deal with his everyday needs and desires. By most any measure of human well-being, people who live in countries toward the capitalistic end of the economic spectrum are far better off than their fellow men who live in countries toward the socialist end.”

“Capitalism, or what some call free markets, is relatively new in human history. Prior to capitalism, the way individuals amassed great wealth was by looting, plundering and enslaving their fellow man. With the rise of capitalism, it became possible to amass great wealth by serving and pleasing your fellow man. Capitalists seek to discover what people want and produce and market it as efficiently as possible as a means to profit. … Here’s my question to you: Are the people who, by their actions, created unprecedented convenience, longer life expectancy and a more pleasant life for the ordinary person — and became wealthy in the process — deserving of all the scorn and ridicule heaped upon them by intellectuals and political hustlers today?”

“What our nation needs is a separation of “business and state” as it has a separation of “church and state.” That would mean crony capitalism and crony socialism could not survive.”

Morality and Freedom

“Do-gooders fail to realize that most good is not done in the name of good but done in the name of self-interest.”

“But let me offer you my definition of social justice: I keep what I earn and you keep what you earn. Do you disagree? Well then tell me how much of what I earn belongs to you — and why?”

“How does something immoral, when done privately, become moral when it is done collectively? Furthermore, does legality establish morality? Slavery was legal; apartheid is legal; Stalinist, Nazi, and Maoist purges were legal. Clearly, the fact of legality does not justify these crimes. Legality, alone, cannot be the talisman of moral people.”

“No matter how worthy the cause, it is robbery, theft, and injustice to confiscate the property of one person and give it to another to whom it does not belong”

“Philosopher Johann Wolfgang von Goethe explained that ‘no one is as hopelessly enslaved as the person who thinks he’s free.’ That’s becoming an apt description for Americans who are oblivious to — or ignorant of — the liberties we’ve lost.”

Judge Says Los Angeles County Health Officials Must Provide Evidence To Justify Ban On Outdoor Dining At Restaurants

Daily Wire - Thu, 12/03/2020 - 19:35

On Wednesday, a judge instructed attorneys representing the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to return to court next week with medical evidence to justify a three-week ban on outdoor dining that many restaurant owners say could put them out of business.

The Daily News reports Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Chalfant “appeared sympathetic” to separate lawsuits seeking to lift the restriction filed by the California Restaurant Association and famed attorney Mark Geragos, who owns the Engine Co. No. 28 restaurant in downtown L.A. However, according to the outlet, “Chalfant said he was reluctant to issue an order that could have a major impact on public health without first reviewing scientific data about the danger of coronavirus transmission at an outdoor dining establishment.”

He scheduled another hearing for next Tuesday when public health officials will have an opportunity to bring forth information that backs up their decision to issue such a directive.

“An order to show cause means that Los Angeles County, which has banned outdoor dining at restaurants, must finally step forward and show evidence linking outdoor dining to the ongoing rise in coronavirus cases,” said Jot Condie, president and CEO of the California Restaurant Association. “Their order was arbitrary and targeted restaurants unfairly, without supporting evidence.”

“It is our expectation that if the county is unable to produce evidence justifying this decision, then outdoor dining should be allowed to resume as soon as the stay-at-home order is lifted.”

(2/4)“We are pleased today for the order from Judge James C. Chalfant. An order to show cause means that Los Angeles County, which has banned outdoor dining at restaurants, must finally step forward and show evidence linking outdoor dining to the ongoing rise in coronavirus cases

— @CalRestaurants (@CalRestaurants) December 2, 2020

Judge Chalfant requested that public health officials explain why L.A. County’s order is more severe than Gov. Gavin Newsom’s reopening strategy for California. According to the L.A. Times, Newsom’s plan “permits outdoor dining and requires a risk-benefit analysis for restrictions that are stricter than those of the state.”

“You have to do a risk-benefit analysis for public health,” Judge Chalfant said. “You don’t just talk about the risk of spreading disease. You have to talk about the benefit of keeping restaurants open.”

L.A. County must show evidence for outdoor dining ban, judge orders https://t.co/37yFOD20x4

— Los Angeles Times (@latimes) December 2, 2020

More from the L.A. Times:

Chalfant expressed some skepticism about the ban. Based on the studies he has reviewed, the risk of spreading the coronavirus from outdoor dining appears minimal, he said.

But the county should have a chance to “answer those questions and fill those holes,” the judge said.

Chalfant also asked county officials to explain why the ban was keyed to the five-day average of new coronavirus cases hitting 4,000.

The county must provide data on hospital capacity and intensive care beds to support its claim that the healthcare system would be overwhelmed without the ban, the judge said.

Health authorities announced the suspension on outdoor dining last month, citing a surge in COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. It restricts restaurants, breweries, wineries, and bars to takeout and delivery orders.

“The persistent high number of cases requires additional safety measures that limit mixing in settings where people are not wearing masks,” Barbara Ferrer, the L.A. County public health director, said at the time.

This was the moment L.A. County Supervisor @SupJaniceHahn pushed DPH for their data supporting closing of outdoor dining. They admitted they had none, and instead cited a CDC study that included indoor dining as the "best info we have".@kathrynbarger not pleased w/ that @FOXLA pic.twitter.com/PKIWUirbMz

— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) November 25, 2020

But public health officials were unable to provide data to support their decision to implement the ban when pressed by the powerful L.A. County Board of Supervisors. Still, the body voted 3-2 to move forward with the order. Democratic Supervisor Sheila Kuehl was caught dining outdoors at a Santa Monica restaurant hours after she voted to uphold the restriction. The ban took effect the next day, on November 25.

U.K. Health Official Says Mask-Wearing, Social Distancing Could Go On ‘For Years’

Daily Wire - Thu, 12/03/2020 - 19:21

Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, the United Kingdom’s deputy chief medical officer, raised more than a few eyebrows this week when he said that mask-wearing, social distancing, and various COVID-19 mitigation procedures could go on “for years,” becoming a part of our social fabric.

“Do I think there will come a big moment where we have a massive party and throw our masks and hand sanitiser and say, ‘That’s it, it’s behind us’, like the end of the war? No, I don’t,” Van-Tam said during a Downing Street press conference, as reported by The Sun.

Van-Tam added that it would be a “good thing” if those habits persisted well into the future.

“I think those kind of habits that we have learned from… will perhaps persist for many years, and that may be a good thing if they do,” he said.

Standing beside him, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson immediately chimed in to say, “And maybe… on the other hand, we may want to get back to life as pretty much as close to normal.”

Speaking with The Sun, Van-Tam said that COVID-19 could “be with human kind forever” and may even become a “seasonal problem.” When Boris Johnson pushed back on some Van-Tam’s doomsaying, the professor clarified that he does not believe heavily restrictive measures will persist, even if the virus does.

“I do like to be challenged when I have, perhaps, not made myself clear, and the Prime Minister has picked me up on this occasion, and it’s quite alright because it gives me a chance to clarify what I mean here,” he said.

“I do not think the Government will continue to have to recommend social distancing, masks, and hand sanitiser forever and a day,” he continued. “I hope we will get back to a much more normal world. But, the point I was trying to make was – do I think, possibly, some of those personal habits for some people will persist longer, and, perhaps, become enduring for some people, yes, I think that’s possible.”

Van-Tam later added that COVID-19 could become a seasonal problem like the flu — something that humans have to learn to live with.

“I think it’s going to be with humankind forever,” he said. “I think we may get to a point where coronavirus becomes a seasonal problem – I don’t want to join too many parallels with flu – but possibly that is the kind of way we would learn to live it.”

Van-Tam also stressed the importance of a vaccine for people who want the problem to go away.

“This vaccine isn’t going to help you if you don’t take it. You will need two doses of this vaccine to have full protection,” he said. “Watching others take it and hoping it will protect you too doesn’t work necessarily. We don’t know if it prevents transmission.”

HUGE! Video Footage From Georgia Shows Suitcases Filled with Ballots Pulled From Under Table AFTER Supervisor Told GOP Poll Workers to Leave Tabulation Center

GatewayPundit - Thu, 12/03/2020 - 19:11

The Georgia Senate Oversight Committee held a hearing on Thursday on the massive election fraud in the state.

President Trump was ahead of Joe Biden by more than 110,000 votes in Georgia on election night when all of a sudden Fulton County stopped counting ballots after a pipe burst.

Poll watchers were kicked out of the State Farm Arena tabulation center on election night after a burst pipe caused flooding.

We now know that a pipe never burst. It was all a lie in order to kick out poll watchers while a few crooks stayed behind to count illegal ballots for Joe Biden.

Trump’s legal team showed a video from the State Farm Arena tabulation center when poll workers were told to leave at 10:25 PM.

A few “workers” stayed behind and were seen pulling suitcases full of ballots out from under tables to be tabulated!
