GA Senate advances election security legislation

Just The NewsThe Georgia Senate has approved four election bills including one that will require ID verification for absentee ballot applicants.

One of the bills, SB 67, adds an ID requirement to paper requests for absentee ballots and would require either a driver's license number, state ID number, or photocopy of a photo ID that would be needed for in-person voting, according to news reports.

"It's not about disenfranchising voters," said Sen. Larry Walker, who sponsored the bills passed Tuesday. "It's not about overly burdening the electorate. It's about efficiency, integrity, allowing the Georgia public to have confidence in the vote."

The legislation seems like a good idea, but it will be meaningless if the executive branch can change the rules on a whim as happened in 2020.

Durham resigns as US attorney; may continue as special counsel for now

Conservative TreehouseAn announcement today from the U.S. District of Connecticut John Durham is a little perplexing. According to the announcement USAO John Durham is resigning from office effective February 28. However, there is no information about his prior appointment as special counsel to review the DOJ and FBI conduct in the Trump investigation.

Durham's resignation as US attorney is part of the normal process (in Democrat administrations) of clearing out political appointees from the other party. How this will affect Durham's role as special counsel for the SpyGate investigation is the real question, but Durham has at this point been pretty much exposed as a paper tiger.

We will just have to see if Durham's special counsel role results in anything, or if he closes up shop.

At this point, I suspect Durham was appointed as special counsel by Barr in order to continue blocking Trump from declassifying the Deep State abuses. Remember, Barr has ties to the first Bush administration -- and so does Stefan Halper, the latter of which engaged in what could well be similar intelligence activities, just without the added FISA wrinkle. (Or for all we know, WITH the added FISA wrinkle).

Biden's responsibility for the Texas power failures

Right JournalismPresident Joe Biden declared a major disaster for only 77 of Texas’ 254 counties in order to focus on the “hardest hit” parts of the state, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Sunday.

Biden’s disaster declaration, issued last Friday, offers much less than what Texas officials had requested.

Gov. Greg Abbott had asked for a declaration that covered the entire state, as Texans reel from a winter storm that knocked out power and heat across the state, and left millions without safe drinking water.

The declaration Biden signed late Friday covers much of the Texas population, including Dallas and neighboring counties, and the counties that include Houston, San Antonio and Austin. But it falls far short of what Texas officials sought. The assistance can include grants for temporary housing, home repairs, and low-cost loans....

The truth is that the federal government controls how Texas generates electricity – the mix of sources and the capacity of each. The DOE requires that Texas’ fossil fuel power generators operate far below their maximum output.

Gov. Abbott knew that if the EPA would allow our natural gas and coal power plants to operate at peak efficiency they could meet 110% of the demand the state faced last week. The EPA refused.

Sadly, Biden’s acting EPA chief, David Huizenga, is not an expert at power generation but instead an expert with nuclear waste management. When Gov. Abbott received the EPA’s refusal he knew Texas was in trouble and there was nothing he could do about it.

To put the DOE’s actions in context their demand that generators sell their additional capacity at $1500/MWh is like telling gas stations they can sell gas to consumers at $1500/gallon – it was a price so high it was basically saying, “no, you can’t increase capacity”

If true, this is exactly why government should not be in charge of basic utilities. Politicians survive by rewarding their friends and punishing their enemies.

Adjudication issues in Maricopa County, too

Gateway PunditMaricopa County in Arizona recently released reports by two vendors who conducted election audits in early February. Witnesses working at the (MCTEC) Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center testified that 12% of all ballots were being sent to adjudication. Numerous supervisors offered this data when struggling to assign this large amount of ballot files to adjudicators.

So one in eight ballots were being sent as a digital image to humans at computers. These adjudicators would review and could change the circles voters selected on these ballots. Changing a ballot is as easy as checking a box on a PDF form. But neither audit discloses this unusually high rate of adjudication or why it happened.

The unusually high adjudication rates appear to be a common factor in regions that had unusual results. Each adjudicated ballot has to be decided by a human, but the process is electronic and subject to interference from hackers. When proper audits have been performed, evidence of intrusions was detected. None of this depends on conspiracy theories about CIA or Dominion involvement, just evidence in the public record.

Compare and contrast: the Mike Flynn case versus SDNY

Sara CarterNathan’s push for a probe granted the Associated Press access to unsealed documents. At the request of the AP, dozens of private text messages, transcripts and correspondences were unsealed Monday and prosecutors were ordered to explain themselves.

The newly disclosed records showed prosecutors discussing turning over records to the defense team for Ali Sadr Hashemi Nejad, who was charged in 2018 with money laundering, bank fraud and violating U.S. sanctions imposed on Iran by funneling $115 million through Venezuelan front companies.

Sadr was found guilty by jurors and was convicted in March 2020, facing a maximum of 125 years in prison. However, prosecutors in the SDNY filed a motion to withdraw the conviction, citing prosecutorial misconduct, and all charges were dropped.

The misconduct here was much less significant and severe (one attorney suggested a day's delay in producing evidence to the defense, and burying the document among other documents) than in the Flynn case, yet charges were dropped immediately without years of appeals.

Both involve prosecutorial misconduct, but the outcomes are vastly different.

The details on the Dems illegal alien amnesty

UncoverDCBoth the House immigration bill, sponsored by Linda Sanchez (D-CA), and the Senate immigration bill has arrived. Mark Krikorian, Executive Director for the Center for Immigration Studies, says it will radically change the face of U.S. immigration policy. Senator Menendez (D-NY), who sponsored the Senate version of the bill, spoke by video conference about the bi-cameral bills.

Like their first legislative act, this is all about making sure that the Dems have a permanent national majority. They'll enable fraud, open the borders, and bring in new illegal voters until they get what they want. Their candidate for AG won't even say that crossing the border illegally is illegal.

Funny how Republicans in office never quite manage to push for anything their voters really want. Sure, tax cuts are nice. But what else?

Supreme Court denies PA election lawsuits as "moot"

Conservative TreehouseIn a 6-3 ruling today the U.S. Supreme Court has refused to grant writ to hear the Pennsylvania election challenge cases. While the majority of media will likely celebrate this decision; and while the court has refused to hear the case(s) based on their position the issues are “moot”; there appears to be an underlying motive not being discussed...

It seems like the court will make whatever excuses necessary to avoid ruling on election cases ... against the Democrats. Kavanaugh and Barrett have been a huge disappointment here. Roberts is a known quantity now. Only Alito, Gorsuch, and Thomas showed the backbone necessary to make an honest ruling. It is almost exactly the same dance the court has used for years to avoid enforcing the 2nd Amendment in another more than the most perfunctory manner. As Ace points out...

Ace of SpadesBy the way, they keep saying that this wouldn't effect the results of the election because they have repeatedly sifted the number of challenges down to the point where we're talking about just a couple of thousand ballots.

They've figured out other ways to ignore the challenges to all the other ballots.

It's like breaking down a cargo into a hundred pieces and saying of each tiny piece, "No, this won't meaningfully affect the ship's seaworthiness. No this one also won't meaningfully affect the ship's seaworthiness. No this one also won't appreciably affect the ship's seaworthiness..."

Yeah but take them all together and the ship sinks.

The courts will not save us.

Garland will not commit to keeping Durham in special counsel role

Gateway PunditRemember when the media said it would be the end of the world if Bill Barr wouldn’t commit to releasing the Mueller report?

Joe Biden’s AG nominee Merrick Garland wouldn’t commit to keeping John Durham in his role as Special Counsel during his confirmation hearing on Monday.

Merrick Garland also wouldn’t commit to releasing Durham’s report to the public.

Of course he won't. Durham will be gone the instant he shows any sign of doing anything other than a coverup operation. Which, judging by results so far, means Durham is probably quite safe.

Fake voters in Missouri

Gateway PunditAn organization called Missouri Black Votes registered roughly 40,000 voters in St. Louis City and 100,000 voters in St. Louis County this past year for the 2020 election. And now St. Louis area residents are receiving voter announcements for people who do not live at their address.
The group was also active in 2018 and reportedly registered more than 87,000 voters across Missouri. According to KBIA — the effort by the coalition, including Missouri Faith Voices, Missouri Jobs with Justice and Shirley’s Kitchen Cabinet, is funded by the Black Progressive Action Coalition, which is affiliated with BlackPAC, a super PAC that backed former Sen. Doug Jones, an Alabama Democrat, and Lucy McBath, a Georgia Democratic congressional candidate.

I bet the vast majority of those fake people voted.

Top Dem donor sentenced to 12 years for selling access

Gateway PunditA top political donor and Los Angeles businessman was sentenced to 12 years in prison for making illegal campaign contributions to Joe Biden, Obama, Hillary Clinton and other politicians. A trove of unsealed court documents included photographs of Zuberi rubbing elbows with then-Vice President Joe Biden. Zuberi reportedly made six-figure donations to the Obama-Biden campaign in 2012 and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

FBI targeting of Trump campaign far wider than originally thought

Just The NewsOnce-secret reports show the FBI effort to spy on the Trump campaign was far wider than previously disclosed, as agents directed an undercover informant to make secret recordings, pressed for intelligence on numerous GOP figures, and sought to find "anyone in the Trump campaign" with ties to Russia who could acquire dirt "damaging to Hillary Clinton."

The now-declassified operational handling reports for FBI confidential human source Stefan Halper — codenamed "Mitch" — provide an unprecedented window both into the tactics used by the bureau to probe the Trump campaign and the wide dragnet that was cast to target numerous high-level officials inside the GOP campaign just weeks before Americans chose their next president in the November 2016 election.

Read the whole thing.

Perhaps most telling is the focus on finding information from Russian connections that could be damaging to Hillary Clinton. That suggests that such information exists, is real, and would be very damaging if revealed. It also suggests the purpose of the investigation was political -- to protect Hillary, first, and to damage Trump and discredit any information that did come out, second -- rather than a true counterintelligence investigation.

Michigan removes almost 200k voters from voter rolls... after the election

Gateway PunditMichigan now admits after ‘certifying’ the 2020 Presidential election, that more voters should be removed from their voter rolls than there were votes won by Joe Biden in the race. Mixed with other suspected fraud, (like 141,000 ballot drops at 6am the day after the election) all the ballots in this state should be forensically audited to determine the full extent of the election fraud.

The damage has already been done, and guess what? It's two years till the next election and the Dems will have even more newly registered fake voters ready by then.

HR1 enshrines voter fraud across the land

J Christian AdamsH.R.1 packs into one 791-page bill every bad idea about how to run elections and mandates that the states must adopt -- the very things that made the election of 2020 such a mess. It includes all of the greatest hits of 2020: Mandatory mail ballots, ballots without postmarks, late ballots and voting in precincts where you don't live. It includes so many bad ideas that no publication has satisfactory space to cover all of them. The Senate companion bill, S.1, might be even worse.

The whole point of this legislation is to create a permanent Dem majority by means of permanent fraud. All the tactics they used to fraud Biden into the White House will be permanent fixtures across all national elections. If this passes, there's probably no voting our way out. No one sane should want that.

Dems want to change election rules nationwide

The FederalistDemocrats introduced the new 800-page “For The People Act of 2021” in early January with the hopes that their control in the House of Representatives and possibly the Senate would allow for swift passage of the bill. Some of the measures in the bill, however, include eliminating the opportunity for states to protect themselves against the modifications weaponized in the 2020 election, such as preventing restrictions on vote-by-mail and imposing voter ID laws. Those measures also give the federal government control over political speech online by expanding the definition of electioneering communications and expose political and nonprofit donors’ information to the public in connection to the causes they support.

The first thing the Democrats want to do after they "win" is put rules in place to permanently ensure they will always "win".

Hand recount shows 300 votes missing from Republican totals in NH

Gateway PunditMore proof of election fraud by Dominion Voting Machines.

A recent hand recount in the Rockingham District 7 NH House Race in Windham, New Hampshire, found that the Dominion voting machines shorted EVERY REPUBLICAN by roughly 300 votes.

The most logical explanation for this is that roughly 300 ballots had some sort of issue with the ballot as a whole rather than with a particular vote (and also less than ten ballots with individual vote issues). Did these ballots go to the adjudication process for manual evaluation? Who did that evaluation?

The Dem totals were also off, but by an order of magnitude less.

300 votes is about 6% of that race. It looks like one race among four almost flipped from R to D based on the missing ballots.

Note: The original source for this claim is Facebook, as far as I can tell. However, the ballot totals after the recount do check out.

HAMMER/SCORECARD claims likely baseless

Sic Semper TyrannisSome faithful readers of SST were understandably upset when I blew the whistle on Mary Fanning’s fraudulent contribution to Mike Lindell’s latest video, Absolute Proof. I agree with Mr. Lindell that the 2020 Presidential election was stolen from Mr. Trump. But what Mary Fanning presents as “evidence” is built on a fabrication. It is not real. And actual cyber experts, including Yaacov Apelbaum, can confirm this.

Sharon Rondeau, who runs The Post & Email, just posted a voluminous report further exposing Dennis Montgomery as a fabricator and grifter. If you take time to read her latest investigative work, Hammer Hoaxer Infiltrates Lindell’s Absolute Proof (Part I) and (Part II), you will here Dennis Montgomery admit on tape that HE WAS NOT THE INVENTOR NOR CREATOR OF HAMMER. Montgomery only started pushing the HAMMER nonsense after Edward Snowden revealed the massive scale and scope of NSA snooping on American citizens.

I wrote briefly about HAMMER/SCORECARD before. At the time, I reserved judgement; I found the claims plausible but specific documentary evidence completely absent. While general ideas about voting machine issues were well known and have yet to be investigated, the specific claims about HAMMER/SCORECARD appear to have collapsed, and I think we can now consider them likely false at least with respect to election manipulation under those names.

One yellow flag for me was that everything about HAMMER/SCORECARD seemed to come from Montgomery or people close to him. Montgomery's claims rested basically on his personal credibility which was mixed at best, and the credibility he appropriated by association with others. Most of that credibility came from McInerney initially, and some from Michael Flynn and Sidney Powell. At the time, I noticed that Powell would speak freely about HAMMER/SCORECARD -- but then stopped, and focused instead on Dominion and an alleged whistleblower. Flynn, on the other hand, appeared as a guest on a few podcasts that also had McInerney talking about HAMMER/SCORECARD. But Flynn did not make those claims or even share microphone time with those making them. That seemed odd.

We now appear to have strong evidence that HAMMER/SCORECARD is baseless (part 1, part 2).

This does not necessarily invalidate other claims about vote-switching by machines, particularly after the forensic examination of voting machines in Antrim county turned up notable anomalies. However, the specific claims originating from Montgomery appear discredited.

Comey admitted he couldn't verify Steele on the same day he signed FISA

Just The NewsThe very day in January 2017 that then-FBI Director James Comey signed a FISA surveillance warrant application declaring content from Christopher Steele's dossier had been "verified," he wrote President Obama's outgoing intelligence community chief with a very different assessment of the British spy's intelligence on Russia collusion, a newly released memo shows.

"We are not able to sufficiently corroborate the reporting," Comey wrote in a Jan. 12, 2017 email to then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper that was declassified and made public through an open records lawsuit by the Southeastern Legal Foundation.

John Solomon at Just The News terms this a smoking gun, and he's right. It is. It should be enough to put Comey in jail for misleading the FISC. But it won't, because the cover-up lasted just long enough -- which is to say. about two weeks longer than Donald Trump lasted.

Supreme Court considering election cases

Washington ExaminerThe Supreme Court on Friday listed several high-profile election lawsuits for consideration at its mid-February conference.

The cases include challenges to the 2020 election from Trump-aligned lawyers Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, as well as Republican Rep. Mike Kelly's Pennsylvania lawsuit. Nearly every lawsuit takes issue with the expanded use of mail-in ballots by many states.

The decision came after the court declined to fast-track all election-related litigation in early January.

I fear the outcome in these cases is now preordained. Had these cases been decided before the election, their decisions could be made honestly. Now? If the court rules that Biden's wins in several of the states was actually illegitimate... how do you uninstall a president who is occupying the White House?

You don't, absent impeachment, which will not happen due to Democratic control of both houses of Congress (or the 25th Amendment, which doesn't apply here). But if the Supreme Court rules honestly that the rules were illegally changed and the election was invalid, it will tear apart the country and likely spark civil war.

The only justice I trust to have that level of fuck-you is Clarence Thomas. The others are unknown quantities or known squishes.

The court has destroyed its own credibility.

A terrifying summary of things to come

Mark WauckIf one thing has become clear during these early days of the Zhou Baiden regime, it's that the new regime is determined to crush all dissenting voices that might oppose the regime's agenda. Not surprisingly, that effort is starting on Capitol Hill, guarded now by the New Army of the Potomac--the National Guard units that are the regime's occupying force in the Imperial City on the Potomac. There can be little doubt that Nancy Pelosi's January Sixth Commission will be targeting GOP legislators, given that Pelosi's hand picked witchhunt leader has openly called for the likes of Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz to be "run out of DC" for their alleged role.

But all the forces at the regime's command are being marshalled to solidify power and control.

I wish I didn't think he was right.
