Sen. Blackburn: ‘Now is the time’ for Trump to present evidence of fraud in court

[embedded content]

I will say now is the time for the Trump campaign, if they have their information that they need to present in court,” said Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) on ABC News Prime on Saturday. “Now is the time they need to be taking that evidence to the court.”

“There is a process, that the media doesn’t declare,” said Blackburn responding to why she and her Republican colleagues don’t accept president-elect Biden. “This is something your local and your state officials will do as they certify those elections.

It is important that we settled this. I think if every legal vote is counted, Donald Trump would get four more years.”

It is not the job of any of the news organizations to declare the winner. This is up to the people of the country. It is up to the boards of elected. It is up to the secretaries of state and once all of that has transpired and the electors have been appointed and there is an electoral college, then that is the time to make those two declarations. And at that point, whether it is President Trump for four more years or Joe Biden for a new term, that will be the time to do that.”

Biden’s Chief Of Staff: Trump has ‘definitely set back the democratic norm’ in US

[embedded content]

“Trump has definitely set back the democratic norm here in the United States,” said Ronald Klain, Joe Biden’s newly appointed Chief of Staff said on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.

“[Trump] has been doing that for four years, and that’s ramped up since the election,” continued Klain.

Klain continued to bash Trump, saying that “he could not really run on his record, and the voters rejected his leadership, and since then Donald Trump has been rejecting democracy.”

“We know we have to reach out to republicans, we know that we have to bring this country together,” continued Klain. “In fact that the entire essence of Joe Biden’s campaign for the Presidency. Trying to heal this nation, repair its soul, restore its backbone, united the country. And uniting this country is what [Biden] is doing.”

Orwell’s 1984 is prophetic: How the leftists are trying to change and erase President Trump and history

I’m literally sickened by the actions of some in the main stream media, leftists and their minions in the education system that are seeking to rewrite history and ostracize anyone that supported President Donald Trump. Regardless of where anyone stands politically, everyone should oppose these un-American tactics and disinformation war against the Commander-in- Chief.

The media, however, along with the help of powerful tech giants, are doing everything in their power to control the narrative of the Trump administration and by doing so change the history of our nation.

Sharyl Attkinson’s book Slanted: How the media taught us to love censorship and hate journalism, lays it out perfectly. She, like others who are concerned about censorship and the media’s devolving role in our Republic, compared the situation to George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984. She describes the protagonist in Orwell’s book, Winston Smith, whose job is to edit history for the Ministry of Truth. Of course, Orwell naturally was describing a society that was rewriting history with lies and a world where Big Brother was watching everyone.

It is essentially happening to our country now, but not by the dystopian government described by Orwell but by a complex network of ideologists that are now in control of some of the most essential industries to America’s freedom.

Look at this headline from Yahoo. It is the first headline from the publication’s Friday story revealing Donald Trump Jr’s diagnosis with COVID-19: Former reality TV show host’s son tests positive for COVID-19, by Patrick Gomez.

What an insult to the American people and to President Trump. Yes, he is still the president of the United States. What was the point of this headline and others like this but to slowly rewrite history and to erase this President and the administration’s achievements.

Benny Johnson is right “the media is already trying to erase the fact that he is President.”

This didn’t just start after the 2020 election. This has been happening since Trump became the Republican candidate nominee in 2016.

Think about the last four years of Trump’s presidency. Think about the onslaught of lies against him in the media. In fact, the outrageous lies that were perpetrated against Trump, his campaign and the White House before, during and after his 2016 election. The Russia Hoax was truly a conspiracy against the President by former senior Obama Administration officials who didn’t want him in office. They weaponized both federal law enforcement and the intelligence community against him and then used the media to spread the lies that were later proven to be false by investigations conducted by those of us who believed in seeking the truth.

This is the truth about the 2020 election: 73 million Americans voted for Trump, the most of any Republican President in history. Moreover, if you, like me, believe that there may be a significant chance that this election was plagued with enough fraudulent behavior that only a thorough investigation could ever uncover, then he may have garnered the most votes of any American President.

If Americans don’t start demanding better we will only have ourselves to blame for what will come in our future.

It’s not going to end with President Trump. Others will be the target of these actions in what is truly becoming a new dystopian world. Republicans and Democrats alike that don’t fit the mold of this new shadow government will meet a similar fate.

The actions of these leftists Marxist ideologues embedded in our nation’s schools, combined with left leaning social media platforms and their virulent spread of these unAmerican ideas is what we have been witnessing.

I certainly hope we wake up, expose it and stop the infection before it kills our liberty and shreds our Constitution.

VP Pence campaigns in Georgia ahead of Senate runoff elections there

As the weather gets colder, things are heating up down in Georgia.

Ahead of two side-by-side runoff elections in Georgia on January 5, Vice President Mike Pence took some time on Friday to campaign with the state’s two incumbent GOP senators to fend off challenges from two well-funded Democratic candidates. These two races will determine which political party will hold a slim majority in the U.S. Senate during the next two-year session of Congress. If Democrats pick up both seats, the Senate will be split 50-50 and give Vice President-elect Kamala Harris the tie-breaking vote.

The Republican Party has controlled the Senate since seizing it during the 2014 midterm elections. Prior to the 2018 midterms, Republicans had controlled the House of Representatives since 2010.

This happened on the same day Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office announced that, after its hand audit of the state’s election results, it has certified the results showing the President-elect Joe Biden has won the key state, making him the first Democratic presidential candidate to pick up the Peach State since 1992. While the major news outlets called the presidential election for Biden two weeks ago, President Donald Trump and his campaign have launched dozens of legal challenges to the results in multiple swing states alleging election fraud.

The vice president appeared alongside Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue at an event in the outer parts of the Atlanta metropolitan area, where he energetically reaffirmed his support for the Trump campaign’s lawsuits challenging the results in multiple states but slightly softened his rhetoric, focusing more on the runoffs and shoring up Republican turnout.

“As our election contest continues, here in Georgia and in courts across the country, I’ll make you a promise,” Pence said. “We’re going to keep fighting until every legal vote is counted. We’re going to keep fighting until every illegal vote is thrown out. And whatever the outcome, we will never stop fighting to make America great again.”

Pence is widely considered a top contender for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination and him campaigning to maintain the GOP’s Senate majority could help to position him well in less than four years from now.

Multiple outlets: Lara Trump, Mark Meadows eyeing NC Senate seat in 2022

Multiple outlets have reported on Thursday and Friday that Lara Trump and Mark Meadows are both weighing runs for one of North Carolina’s U.S. Senate seats in 2022, according to people familiar with their plans. This comes after Sen. Richard Burr (R) recently announced that he would not seek re-election, closing the book on what has been a 15-year career in the Senate.

A source familiar with the plans of President Donald Trump‘s daughter-in-law, who has reportedly discussed them directly with her, told Fox News on Friday that Lara Trump is “interested and exploring” a possible run. Trump is married to the president’s third child, Eric, and hails from the state, after whom she named one of her children Carolina.

The source told Fox News that Trump should “automatically be considered formidable,” saying that she has deep roots in North Carolina and was a frequent presence for President Trump’s campaigns there in 2016 and in 2020.

“The president gave her the responsibility of winning North Carolina in 2016 and in 2020 — she did it both times,” the source said, adding that she’s a “household name” and that she’s “well-known among the Republican Party.”

“Were she to run, she should be considered an immediate front runner,” the source also said.

“She’s very charismatic, she understands retail politics well, and has a natural instinct for politics,” Mercedes Schlapp told the NYT

Mercedes Schlapp, an adviser to President Trump’s 2020 campaign who crisscrossed the country as a surrogate alongside Ms. Trump, told the New York Times, who was the first to report the news on Thursday, that Trump has a lot of potential. Schlapp also said that Ms. Trump was a “household name,” but it is not clear if she is the same source who spoke to Fox News the day after.

“She’s very charismatic, she understands retail politics well, and has a natural instinct for politics,” she said. “In North Carolina, in particular, she’s a household name and people know her. She worked really hard on the campaign and was very involved in a lot of decisions throughout.”

Kellyanne Conway, a former White House official and the Trump campaign manager in 2016, shared a similar sentiment with The Times about Ms. Trump’s potential to make headway in a potential senatorial campaign.

“She would be formidable,” she said. “She has the trifecta: She can raise money, raise awareness of key issues and raise attention to her race. Unlike many typical politicians, she connects with people and is a compelling messenger.”

Before entering politics, she was a television producer for “Inside Edition“ and also worked as a professional chef and a personal trainer.

Meadows, President Trump’s chief of staff, is reportedly considering the Senate seat too, multiple outlets say. Before joining the Trump administration earlier this year, Meadows was a member of the House of Representative from North Carolina since 2013.

Speculation about a potential candidacy from him garnered significantly less attention than that surrounding Ms. Trump. In most articles from major outlets, he was often only mentioned in a single paragraph or sentence whereas Trump has had entire articles dedicated to her and a possible campaign.

A GOP insider who is involved with Senate races told Fox News in the same Friday article that Meadows is pondering a run for the soon-to-be-vacant seat. Neither Meadows nor his staff have spoken publicly about the current speculation surrounding his political future.

DHS Official: Fired Cybersecurity Director Did Not Have Authority To Speak On Election Fraud

President Donald J. Trump fired Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Christopher Krebs on Tuesday night after he repeatedly undermined the existence of election fraud and reaffirmed his CISA colleagues’ statement calling the 2020 election, “the most secure in American history.”

“On allegations that election systems were manipulated, 59 election security experts all agree, in every case of which we are aware, these claims either have been unsubstantiated or are technically incoherent,” Krebs wrote in a tweet from his government account.

Trump released Krebs from his position within the Department of Homeland Security on Twitter, saying that his attitude towards election security is “highly inaccurate.” 

“The recent statement by Chris Krebs on the security of the 2020 Election was highly inaccurate, in that there were massive improprieties and fraud – including dead people voting, Poll Watchers not allowed into polling locations, “glitches” in the voting machines which changed … votes from Trump to Biden, late voting, and many more,” Trump wrote.

While CISA successfully prevented a cyberattack on “election infrastructure,” a DHS official told The Federalist that election fraud is “beyond the scope” of the authority extended to CISA and Krebs, who is authorized to address election interference only.

“Election fraud is different than election interference and is beyond the scope of CISA authorities,” the official said. “CISA does not have firsthand information on allegations of voting fraud or investigate such claims, responsibility for which lies with State and local authorities and the Department of Justice.”

The official also said that the authority on election processes belongs to individual states, but reaffirmed Trump in saying that there appear to be allegations of voter fraud that are being legally pursued.

“Each state is responsible for the execution of its own elections.  Not CISA and not the federal government,” the official said. “Allegations of voter fraud are being adjudicated through the court system.”

Despite these parameters on CISA and Kreb’s jurisdiction, the CISA “rumor control” webpage is filled with examples of CISA moving from discussing interference to disputing claims about election fraud.

Shortly after he was fired, Krebs confirmed the DHS official’s statement about the scope of his authority, and but claimed he never said there was no election fraud.

Georgia Republican Poll Watcher Discovered Recount Error Off By More Than 9,000 Votes For Biden

An error in DeKalb County, Georgia during a recount caused a voting batch to be labeled incorrectly, appearing to overstate Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden’s performance.

David Shafer, Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, announced the error on Twitter Wednesday morning saying that while the batch of ballots contained 1,081 votes for Biden and 13 for Trump, the batch was labeled as containing 10,707 votes for Biden.

“One of our monitors discovered a 9,626 vote error in the Dekalb County hand count,” Shafer said. “One batch was labeled 10,707 for Biden and 13 for Trump — an improbable margin even by DeKalb standards. The actual count for the batch was 1,081 for Biden and 13 for Trump,” Shafer said.

The error reportedly occurred Sunday, as recorded in a signed affidavit, and was observed by a Republican poll watcher who was monitoring the “audit, vote review, hand count, and recording” of votes at the DeKalb County Board of Elections. During their observations, the GOP poll watcher, joined by another Republican, noticed the mistake on the early voting ballot box and brought it to the attention of election officials.

The officials corrected the error, finding two fewer total votes than previously thought.

Shafer also pointed out that other errors may have gone unnoticed due to limitations and restrictions on how many observers could be assigned to counting tables.

“We were limited to 1 monitor for every 10 counting tables and we were kept some distance from the tables,” he wrote. “There is no telling what we missed under these unreasonable restrictions. The miscounted batch had been signed off by two official counters.”

DeKalb County reportedly completed their “state-mandated, risk-limiting” audit Sunday night.

Georgia began a full recount and audit less than week ago. During this period multiple errors have been discovered by election officials.

In Fayette County, 2,755 votes that were left out of the first count were found, and 1,577 of the votes were eventually tallied for President Donald Trump, while 1,128 for Joe Biden.

“The votes that were found through our audit process here in Georgia in Floyd, Fayette, and Walton counties will be added to all races where votes were cast on those ballots,” said Georgia Voting System Implementation Manager Gabriel Sterling. “Both Senator Perdue and Bubba McDonald are still in runoffs even with these vote additions.”

According to WSBTV, 57 counties left the recount with the same ballot count as before, but 21 counties are either above or below the original ballot count and 32 counties are “off by single-digit numbers and are being investigated.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden is leading Georgia by just under 13,000 votes.

Georgia residents, Vernon Jones are at the Capital demanding a meeting with the Secretary of State

Democratic Rep. Vernon Jones speaks to a crowd of President Trump supporters outside the Georgia State Capital Wednesday (Nov. 19,2020) Photo provided by Ben Hendrick for SaraACarter.com

Georgia residents marched to the State Capitol with Democratic Rep.Vernon Jones leading the way Wednesday shouting “stop the steal’ and demanding a meeting with Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

Jones, a supporter of President Donald Trump, said the integrity of the Georgia election has been shaken, as more and more irregularities have been disclosed. Moreover, the discovery of thousands of ballots that were not uploaded into the voting system is stunning evidence that the state may need to conduct a thorough investigation into what happened.

Raffensperger has come under fire for accusing fellow Republicans, including Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina, and others for saying they were pressuring him into throwing out legally cast absentee ballots, in an effort to reverse President Trump’s narrow loss in the state.

Ben Hendrick, a cyber security expert and GOP observer, who worked the Cobb County recount facility over the weekend, told me that Republicans are demanding an investigation into the missing ballots and irregularities. He marched alongside Jones at the rally on Wednesday.

He said frustration is mounting in Georgia and the GOP is doing everything it can to ensure that every legitimate vote counts.

“We want Gov. Kemp to hold a special session with the legislature before we certify the vote,” said Hendrick.

Thousands of uncounted Georgia Votes: ‘If these were democratic counties’ there would be OUTRAGE

Operations center for the recount in DeKalb County, took place at the Sam’s Club store on Turner Hill Drive in Stonecrest. The counting started at 7 a.m. Saturday. (picture provided by volunteer observer)

Georgia Secretary of State election official Gabriel Sterling announced at a news conference on Tuesday that 2,755 uncounted votes were found on a memory card in Fayette County. It wasn’t the only county to find thousands of missing votes.

These votes, which will be included in the county’s re-certified results, will lead to a net gain for Donald Trump of 449 votes, according to Sterling.

There are now four counties – Walton, Douglas, Fayette and Floyd – where uncounted votes were discovered. On Monday, the Secretary of State’s office announced an error found in Floyd County where 2,600 ballots were left uncounted.

Tuesday evening, Walton County found 284 votes on a memory card from an election day polling precinct that were never counted.There was no explanation how the memory card wasn’t uploaded to the system and it left many wondering if there were any other votes out there that have been misplaced, lost or purposefully removed.

That find in Walton County narrowed the margin in Trump’s favor by 176 votes.

While uncounted votes have been found in three counties, the secretary of state’s office has yet to acknowledged the claims, and has continued to defend the integrity of the election and the voting process.

According to ABCNews, one of the secretary’s top deputies said the secretary of state’s office has “not seen any evidence” that there are enough of those votes to flip the outcome.

Marci McCarthy, a party monitor representing the Georgia GOP, was shocked when she heard the news of the uncounted votes.

McCarthy has been volunteering as an observer in DeKalb County while they recount the votes.

“I was pretty astounded when the first discovery happened in Floyd County and then subsequently after, in Fayette County. And now in the late night hours, in Walton County,” said McCarthy. “If these were Democrat counties, the Democrats would be outraged.”

The state has three days left to certify its election results.There are another 32 counties that found the results of the audit were off compared to their originally reported results.

“The hope is we don’t find any more of these counties with, you know, a couple of hundred here or 3,000 votes there, but the reason you do the audit is to find these kind of human errors and then make sure that they are corrected,” Sterling said Tuesday.

As claims of uncounted votes and irregularities continue to be reported, many Americans are losing faith in our election system.

“With three different Republican counties in Georgia that were discovered containing thousand of uncounted ballots, I am very concerned about the accuracy and reliability of our election, said Baer-McCarthy. “We’ve been asked to accept much of this at face value. But there has been a lack of transparency, the process has been riddled with human error and there are many accusations of voter fraud. While many of these items are still being investigated, it does not give anybody, including myself, a warm feeling that our election process is fair, transparent and reliable.”

She added, “as Americans, we deserve election integrity. And have the right to question it when it is not forth-coming.”

Trump: Michigan Republican officials were ‘threatened, screamed at and viciously harassed, and were forced to change their vote’

November 18, 2020

Tuesday night in Wayne County, Michigan, the Board of Canvassers could not come to an agreement on certifying the election votes.

The Republicans had concerns that a large number of Detroit precincts were “out of balance,” meaning that the numbers of voters who signed into polling places did not match the number of ballots there. Many GOP leaders and the White House voiced their concerns about the findings.

In response, Donald Trump tweeted, “Michigan just refused to certify the election results! Having courage is a beautiful thing. The USA stands proud!”

A few hours later, the vote reconsideration took place.

Under a revised motion, the canvassers voted to unanimously certify the Wayne County election results but demanded a “comprehensive audit” by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.

The Republican canvassers agreed to certify the results after the promise of an audit but it didn’t come easily. According to reports the Republicans were under enormous pressure from the left to certify the results.

By Wednesday morning, President Trump reacted to the election certification, saying on Twitter that the canvassers were “threatened, screamed at and viciously harassed, and were forced to change their vote.”

Jonathan Kinloch, one of two Democrats on the board, said the audit will commence after the Board of State Canvassers certifies Michigan election results, which could happen as soon as Nov. 23. 

Monica Palmer, one of the two Republicans on the board, initially said that she did not “have faith that the poll books are complete and accurate” and said the compromise addressed her concerns.

“I appreciate putting our heads together to come to a solution,” Palmer said.
