What Rep. Jim Clyburn Really Meant By “Voter Suppression”
How Voting By Mail, Combined With Chronically Inaccurate Voter Rolls, Can Destroy The Foundations of Our Democracy
by Pem Schaeffer8 November 2020(day 6 of a long election nightmare)firstname.lastname@example.org
Paging Rep. Jim Clyburn (D, SC), House Majority Whip! Rep. Clyburn! Call for Rep. Jim Clyburn! Jim? Are you there, Jim?
I’ve been watching the news closely since election day, but have yet to see Rep. Jim Clyburn, (D, SC) rise to a podium and shed tears over the rampant voter suppression he saw on election day, just as his grievous concerns warned us that it would.
I wonder what happened; why isn’t “our good friend, the Honorable Representative from South Carolina,” on camera telling us how right he was in his predictions? And then at age 78, I realized I was being taught the same lesson I’ve been taught over and over and over in the past, and I still don’t learn it for good.
I watched Clyburn utter his warnings about “rampant voter suppression” assuming he was scared witless that white racist election officials all across the fruited plains would contrive to prevent eligible blacks from voting as the law allows. In retrospect, after a couple of well-placed palm shots to my own forehead, I realized I’d fallen for a classic trap; taking a comment as if it was meant in the seemingly obvious way, when it was actually meant in exactly the opposite way.
Jim wasn’t worried about legitimate votes not being cast, he was worried about illegitimate votes not being cast. And we haven’t seen him appear since election day because his fears were never realized; in fact, he may be sipping some fine whiskey with friends as they congratulate each other for how things “worked out.”
I think I can make exactly that case – that instead of suppression of legitimate votes, massive creation of illegitimate votes may well be what we have witnessed, and in all likelihood, it will impose false outcomes upon our nation.
Let me explain. I live in a small town of 21,000 in a small state of 1.3 million. In a state of this size, a town of 21,000 is bigger than most, and we are known as a “service center community” because we have things like hospitals, Wal-Marts, Lowes, and even a choice of supermarkets. Not to mention an elite, highly selective liberal arts college.
After the recent election, I decided to look up the local results, and they were overwhelmingly in favor of Left/Progressives for the most part, which is our tradition. But what really jumped out was that we have 20,700 eligible voters in a town of 21,000, according to local officials.
Anyone who has been involved in elections at more than a cursory level knows that voter registration lists (rolls,) which originate and are maintained at the municipal level, are notoriously out of date and strewn with errors. This is for many reasons, of which the most basic is that there is no robust, consistently applied, national methodology for seeing that they are accurate and up to date. The real tragedy, of course, is that this roll of voters determines who is eligible to vote, having previously registered. Of course, in most places, if you are not registered, you can do so at the polls on election day, and if you have no proof of residence or age or citizenship, you can simply sign an affidavit, and you will be given a ballot just like any long term resident of town.
What could go wrong with this system, right? Let’s start with this: in a town of 21,000, in which approx 3,000 children are in the town’s schools, or too young to enroll, 18,000 seems like a logical upper limit on eligible voters, not 20,700. There are other reasons to think the number should be even lower, but let’s use 2,500 as the number of actually ineligible voters included in the 20,700 figure reported. Even though my town did not use “Voting by Mail,” if they had, at least 2,500 illegitimate ballots would have been distributed across the municipal landscape, with completely unpredictable results, and ripe for mischief of known and unknown types. It is unknowable how many of those ballots would have been returned, and worse, how many would have been rejected, because they would have all correlated with the voter list in effect as of election day. In other words, all manner of voter fraud schemes would have been undetectable.
Now, let’s do a little extrapolation. In my town, at least 14% of the names on the rolls look to be ineligible (3,000/20,700). Close to 150 Million votes have been cast in this election so far. For purposes of discussion, let’s say there were 250 Million voters on the rolls nation-wide. I’m not sure of how many of those were being sent Vote by Mail ballots, but let’s use half as an estimate.
That would mean 125 Million Vote by Mail ballots were sent out nation-wide. I see no reason to think that the voter registration lists driving those mailings were any more or less accurate than the list in my town. That would mean that more than 17 million of those mailed out ballots were illegitimate,
And the worst part is that it is unknowable where those ballots ended up, and what ended up being done with them. But one thing is sure; in an election year where the race for President boiled down to something like a few hundred thousand contested votes, it is abundantly clear that systemically inaccurate voter registration rolls nationwide, coupled with a shotgun distribution of ballots to names on the rolls, who did not request them, and who may well no longer belong on those rolls, is an insult to the notion of election integrity.
Once again, if you think about what you just read, you can readily understand that the historic claims of “voter fraud being virtually unknown” is because in a system like this, it is in most cases unknowable from the git-go. And even if it was, the fact that ballots are “secret” and untraceable after being counted (or even worse, being falsely tallied), further corrupts election integrity.
Which is why political machines in places like Chicago, Philadelphia, and various other bastions of fixed elections have prospered for decades and decades.
And unsurprisingly, why we haven’t heard from Rep. Clyburn since election day. It looks like “our good friend from the State of South Carolina” got all the votes and more he could have possibly wanted to elect his choice for President. Voter suppression? Not on your life. Not even close, Jim.

|Jumping the Shark By Judd Garrett|
Objectivity is the Object November 8, 2020
On September 20, 1977, after a 3 year run as one of the top rated TV shows in America, the creators of the sitcom Happy Days decided to have the shows main Character Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzarelli jump a shark on water skis. That episode provided a short-term ratings bump, but then the show went from borderline great to bad quickly. From then on, the watershed moment of when anything goes from really good to bad, is referred to as “jumping the shark”.On November 3, 2020, the United States of America officially jumped the shark. It appears to me that the best days are behind us as a nation, not because who was elected, but because of the way he was elected, and who was involved.In 1787, at the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin walked out of Independence Hall, and a lady walked up to him and asked, “what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” Franklin replied, “A republic . . . if you can keep it.”Somewhere in the back of Franklin’s mind he knew how fragile a republic actually is, and he knew at some point in the future, we couldn’t keep it, and America would jump the shark. For all of their personal shortcomings, the founders were very brilliant men. They created an almost perfect system of government. The foundation of which relies on a balance of power between three separate bodies, the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches. It was designed to not give any one side a disproportionate amount of power, because they knew inherently that power corrupts, and corruption is poison to a republic. Each branch was designed to keep the other branches power in check.There was a danger in this structure, though. What happens when the three co-equal branches use their power not to keep the other branches in check but to collude with the other branches to consolidate and enhance their power over the people? The founders foresaw this potential corruption and tried to protect against it by ensuring the freedom of the press in the constitution. They knew that as long as the media was free and not controlled by the government, they would keep all three branches in check from grabbing or abusing power.Somewhere in the last 40 years, the American media stopped being objective journalists searching for the truth and exposing corrupt politicians, to aligning themselves with individual political parties, reporting on their behalf, pushing their agendas, and even parroting their party’s political talking points. Politicians are going to lie, spin and slant. That’s their nature, but it’s up to the journalist to smack them in the face and say, “no, that’s not true.” But they must do that for all politicians, not just the ones they don’t like. If journalists are only calling out certain politicians and not others, they are spinning and slanting the truth as much as the politicians.It’s the job of the media to be the skeptic, to question every decision politicians make. They are our voice. They have access to our leaders that the average citizen does not. So, why was it that the same media who criticized the truly peaceful protestors against government mandated lockdowns because they were potentially spreading Covid, openly cheered for the four month long riots that ran through our country that not only killed over 30, injured thousands and caused billions of dollars of damage, but also spread Covid throughout our inner-cities? Because opening the country helped the candidate they didn’t like, and the riots hurt the candidate they didn’t like. The media told us that we can’t protest lockdowns because of Covid, but we can riot in spite of Covid.
Everyone in the media knows that doesn’t make sense. There’s no logic and truth to that thinking. They just continued to parrot their favored party’s talking points because it served their agenda.Everyone in the media also knows that mail-in ballots are susceptible to fraud. Why doesn’t anyone send large sums of cash through the mail? Because there’s a good chance it would get stolen. Each vote in this election determined who gets to decide how we spend $4.5 trillion. Would anybody send $4.5 trillion of cash through the US mail? Would anyone drop $4.5 trillion dollars in a make-shift drop box on a random street corner with no security or surveillance around? Of course not. But that’s what we just did. Not only did the media not question the intelligence of exposing our election to this level of voter fraud, many actually were the defenders and cheerleaders for this fraud because they knew it would only help the candidate that they preferred. That was not their job. Their job was to ask the tough questions to ensure that the elections were fair and fraud-free.No one in the media finds it strange that the candidate that held a half dozen 50,000+ rallies in small towns throughout Pennsylvania lost the state to the candidate who couldn’t get a hundred people to show up to any rally in Philadelphia or Pittsburgh? Not only does this not pass the smell test. It doesn’t pass the sight, see, taste or touch test. The biggest danger is how willfully on board the media is with this fraud. The same media who pushed the evidence-free fraudulent Russian Collusion hoax for two and a half years refuses to ask the most basic and obvious questions about this election? No one in the media questioned why is it that the same people who were so afraid of Covid they couldn’t leave their houses to vote in person where everyone was socially distanced and everything that was touched was immediately sanitized, but they felt it was safe to leave their houses to drop their ballots in a drop box on the street corner that had been touched by hundreds of potentially virus ridden hands, breathed on and coughed on by passers-by. No one in the media wondered why the Democrats and even some in the media incessantly demanded that Donald Trump accept the results of the election before the ballots had been cast, demanding that he verify a potentially fraudulent election before the election was even over, before all the facts and evidence came to light. No one candidate should be told that they must accept the results of the election under any circumstance before the election even occurred. But that was what was demanded of Trump, accept the results no matter what. It only makes sense to demand such a thing if a fraud is already in the process of being perpetrated. In the old days, there would not need to be party-appointed poll watchers. The poll watchers would have been the journalists, the beat reporter trying to make a name for himself by exposing voter fraud. But our media has decided to look the other way, nothing to see here. There is a staggering lack of journalistic curiosity surrounding the most important aspect of our republic, insuring free and fair elections. You mean to tell me that there’s not one person in the main stream media who says, ‘why is it that the only places where tens of thousands of extra ballots for one of the candidates magically appear after the election are in battleground states where the opposing candidate is winning?’ There is no media curiosity. The media have become cowardly sell-outs.Now, certain media outlets are calling for new legislation to ensure the integrity of future elections, after refusing to investigate the potential voter-fraud in this election. That’s like Attorney General Robert Kennedy using the power of the federal government to try to take down the mafia after the mafia hand delivered the election to John F Kennedy in 1960. No matter how hard you try, it’s very hard to scrub the blood off your hands.In the ensuing weeks, we will hear some beautifully written speeches by our politicians littered with words and phrases like “duly-elected”, “election integrity”, “the people have spoken”, “fair and honest process”, and “call for unity”, but none of those words are at all connected to reality. Those words do not describe the abomination we just witnessed.The powerful will always be tempted by corruption, and ultimately, it’s the media’s job to keep the powerful honest. But once the media has been corrupted, you have lost your country. And you can’t put that toothpaste back in the tube any more than I can un-watch Fonzie jumping the shark.

|Who Won the Election? Nov 4, 2020|
by: Michael Charles Master
November 5, 2020 Did you watch the election returns on Tuesday night? Did you stay up all night? At about midnight on the east coast, Trump led in all the battleground states by large margins. The betting odds were more than 75% for Trump to win. Then for some inexplainable reason, Wisc., Mich., Pa., NC, and NV all stopped counting votes simultaneously… in unison…. took a “pause” .. at around 1 AM. None of those states counted any additional votes for the next 3 hours. So what did they do for those 3 hours?
Let me point out a couple of things:
1. All of those 5 states have Democrat governors.
2. Suddenly during the 3 hour shut down, in the dead of night when most people were sleeping, all those states found enough votes for Biden to catch Trump. 5 for 5.
At midnight in Michigan, Trump was ahead by 5% (400 thousand votes) with 80% of the votes already counted. When the next 10% of votes of about 400,000 were counted from Wayne County (Detroit), then suddenly Biden caught Trump with 90% of the votes in. Biden made up 5% with 10% of the total vote. That means that all the votes (close to 100%) from Wayne went to Biden. That also means that practically all registered voters voted in Wayne County. Does anyone believe any of that is possible? The same thing happened in Madison, Wisc., In Raleigh, NC, in Las Vegas, NV, and could be happening in Phil., PA by Friday. So why did all those Democrat stronghold cities take a “pause” to report their votes?
3. Not one pundit questioned why a shut down in counting votes happened in all those states simultaneously. Not one. Not even on FOX. Not one questioned how almost all of the newly counted votes in those battleground states went to Biden. Only NewsMax pointed out the coincidence of it happening in those 5 states with Democrat governors with Trump ahead before the “pauses.”
4. Wisc. is now reporting 3,239,920 votes cast when there are only 3,129,000 registered voters on record. More people voted than actually registered. When questioned, the Democrat Sec of State says there are 3.6 million registered voters from late registrations. Even if there are 3.6 million registered voters, that means that 90% of them voted when the average was 55 to 60% across the USA. How did almost all votes from Madison go for Biden? Almost 100% of registered voters, not just votes? Did ballot harvesting happen? How about in those other battleground states? 4. CNN, FOX, NBC, ABC, CBS all refused to call the elections in TX and FL until almost all votes were counted, yet FOX called AZ only 30 minutes after the polls closed with less than 50% of the votes Arizona had a million outstanding votes in Republican Maricopa County with Biden ahead in the state by only 100,000 when AZ was called for Biden. If you think that the media cartel was hard at work demonizing Trump for the last 4 years … 94% negative Trump reports…. then it was in full swing last night at protecting those Democrat governors in the battleground states. Think about this for a moment: “resist” by Democrats from the first day that Trump was elected, recounts, no peaceful transition of power, impeachment, 3 years of false accusations about Trump colluding with Russia to affect the 2016 election, Mueller, Comey/Clapper/Brennan with the FISA requests and the Steele Dossier paid by Hillary Clinton, 22 FBI agents lost their jobs because of spying on Trump, riots/ looting/violence, continued polls that proved to be wrong, $400 million by Soros and Bloomberg for Biden, Wall Street 4 to 1 in donations to Biden, lack of coverage about the Bidens’ relationships with China/Russia/Ukraine/Burisma, and then Covid, Covid, Covid around the clock by the media … with little mention of the record economic and international results by Trump. Covid became the reason for the unsolicited mail out of ballots by Democrat governors. Covid was used to scare voters and to distract them from Trump accomplishments. Covid was used as the reason to shut down economies in Democrat run states. Let’s see what happens with Covid now that Democrats and the media no longer need it. So did those battleground states run by Democrats use ballot harvesting or any other types of election fraud? How did the vote tallies change so dramatically after those Democrat governors “paused” in their election counts in the dead of night? In all 5 Democrat controlled battleground states? If the media, Democrats, and deep state could be in such collusion against Trump for 4 years, then how hard is it to question collusion in ballot counting last night by those Democrat governors? What gets lost with a Biden election? for starters: any investigation of Biden with Burisma and China, the Barr investigations, the Durham investigations, the investigations of deep state players, and Constitution integrity with DC as a state and with packing the Supreme Court. Democrats had lots on the line so they practiced “the end justifies the means” just as Alinsky instructed. They cheated and the media helped.
Who won the election? Average working Americans lost. Election integrity lost. No matter who won, America got less great.

|IS VOTER FRAUD A VALID CONCERN? |
By: Marvin CovaultNovember 5, 2020
Our ability to legally vote and ensure that our vote is properly counted is one of the underpinnings of a successful democracy, right up there with freedom of speech. Is voter fraud a problem in the United States?
How prevalent is voter fraud?
The correct answer is, no one knows for sure because fraud is a crime and folks don’t go around advertising that they are breaking the law.
Let’s take a snapshot of the current voter/voter registration problem across America and from that get an idea of why we do not yet know the results of the 3 November presidential election. Generally, voter registration rolls are notoriously inaccurate and out of date, containing the names of voters who are deceased, have moved, or otherwise have become ineligible.
Millions of main-in ballots were sent out to potential voters. Many thousands of those ballots arrived in the mail for individuals who no longer reside at a registered address thereby risking that those ballots could have been stolen and voted.
California: A couple years ago it was determined that 1.5 million individuals were registered even though they no longer were eligible to vote.
Actual cases: Disregarding several warnings, Mr. “Smith” was convicted of registering his four dogs and his deceased father to vote. Or take Mr. “Valdez”, an illegal alien from Mexico who voted multiple times under a false identity. Mr. “Jones” was involved in a scheme with eight other individuals where they solicited hundreds of false and/or forged signatures on voter registration forms by offering homeless people $1 and/or cigarettes for their participation. Other cases out of California include individuals who forged the signatures of voters, being paid $5 per signature.
North Carolina: In 2018 in the 9th Congressional District race was overturned because of illegal vote harvesting that included altering and forging absentee ballots.
Oregon: A survey found that five percent of registered voters admitted that other people marked their ballots (5% of 2.2 million registered voters equals 110,000 potential fraudulent actions). Additionally, 2.4% said someone else signed their ballots. It is suspected the actual number was much higher, given that most people would not want to admit being a party to a crime. Likely tens of thousands of mail-in ballots have been cast in Oregon by individuals other than the registered voter.
New Jersey: A candidate bribed voters with $50 payments for mail-in ballots. The Election Assistance Commission found that 28.3 million ballots in federal elections between 2012 and 2018 were lost or disappeared in the mail.
Virginia: An investigation found 592 examples where registrants were simultaneously registered in another state. There are about 11,600 dead people on Virginia’s voter rolls, all of whom would have receive mail-in ballots.
New Mexico: The Public Interest Legal Foundation found more than 3,000 individuals registered multiple times; 1,700 registrants who are dead; 1,500 voters aged 100 or above, 64 of whom are over 120 years old. All of these supposed voters would have received mail-in ballots.
These are just a few examples of the ongoing voter fraud and election board stupidity in America. Collecting these examples just took a few minutes on Google. Imagine if we went state by state and searched out voting and voter registration investigations.
Absentee and mail-in ballots are the tools of choice of election fraudsters because they can operate outside the supervision of election officials, making it easier to steal, forge, or alter ballots, as well as to intimidate voters.
