What did the Detroit whistleblowers, whose lawsuit was rejected, say they saw? Late ballot boxes, votes counted 4-5 times each

A ballot drop box in Detroit, MI, on Sept. 24, 2020.
Whistleblower Melissa Carone is now on record with the court saying she told her supervisor about massive fraud in Detroit at the TCF Center on election night and was told, "We're not here to run their election" by her boss! This case is part of one filed by the Great Lakes Justice Center. A Detroit Judge has already essentially said all the affidavits are irrelevant in his mind because the City of Detroit says they did everything okay.

CARONE SAW:
  • The same ballots being run repeatedly, where the same stack of 50 Biden ballots became 500 votes
  • No valid or legal oversight of ballot process, it was just Democrats policing Democrats
  • Poll workers duplicated ballots and were changing the votes on the ballots, stealing votes in plain sight!
Carone reported her findings to the FBI, but will they investigate?

Comment: Shane Trejo is another witness whose account was recorded. He says he say drivers bringing in 50 boxes of 'absentee ballots' into the Detroit TCF Center after the deadline (he took down their license plate numbers).
"There were thousands of ballots in each box," Trejo says. "There were at least 50 boxes that I saw unloaded at 3:30am, well after the 8:00pm deadline for ballots to show up."


"They should have been dumped on us at once, when there wasn't a potentiality of fraud. There was no reason for them to show up this late at night."
According to another witness, former state senator Pat Colbeck, it was 61 boxes.

The British Twitter Stasi

twitter secret police
When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989 it took with it the East German State security force known as the 'Stasi'. At the time of its demise, the Stasi employed 91,015 people and relied on 173,081 informants. This works out as one secret police officer for every 166 East Germans, making the Gestapo look like lazy amateurs with their trifling one per 2,000. The Stasi were dangerous because of their embrace of 'Zersetzung' ('decomposition' or 'biodegradation'). The aim of 'Zersetzung' was to destroy the psychological integrity of an individual, by gathering information to damage their reputation and their personal relationships.

As German historian Huberts Knabe commented in 2014:
The Stasi didn't try to arrest every dissident, it preferred to paralyse them, and it could do so because it had access to so much personal information and so many informants'
Given that all this occurred within memory of most people reading this (I was 19 years old when the Wall fell) I find it both depressing and frankly terrifying that many seem to have forgotten the lesson already - or worse, they do not care.

Comment: One wonders how the police justify assigning part of their budget to recording what people say on Twitter. Are there not enough actual crimes happening that need to be investigated?

An American academic has riled social media by urging people to steal and burn copies of a book about gender dysphoria, even while conceding that she's never actually read the allegedly harmful volume.

Grace Lavery, an associate professor of English at UC Berkeley, encouraged her Twitter followers to torch 'Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters' by Abigail Shrier, while reminding people to "be safe when you are burning books."

Comment: Who are the real Nazis? The ones advocating book burning and re-education camps or those holding up free speech?

Are phone networks now censoring links about election fraud?

phone networks censorship


Twitter video shows URL's remaining undelivered.


A video posted to Twitter shows a woman attempting to send a URL about alleged vote fraud to an iPhone but the message going undelivered, prompting claims that phone networks are now censoring links.

"BREAKING: Messages about election fraud are being censored via text message," claims the woman. "Here is 100% proof! [Google] or [Apple] or Verizon or all are the culprit. More testing is needed to figure out which company(s) is censoring text messages about the fraud! We have hit peak level censorship!"

Comment: Well, this is certainly a new level of censorship! It's not enough for social media platforms to prevent link sharing, now they're interfering with private communications!

Unlikely Plan B? Trump could receive second term from U.S. House in 'contingent election'

"It will be the thing, I believe, that will formally elect Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States," said Steve Bannon.

US President Donald Trump
Though chances are slim and the final electoral count is still pending, a little-known provision of the U.S. Constitution provides an opening for President Trump to possibly salvage victory through what's known as a "contingent election."

Under the 12th Amendment, in a contingent election one person does not win a majority of Electoral College votes, and the election is thrown to the U.S. House of Representatives. There, each state's delegation has one vote, and a candidate must receive the votes of a majority of state delegations to win. Because of the timing, the new Congress is the one that decides, not the outgoing one.

Sharing political opinions now 'irresponsible': Woke mob demands Disney sack Gina Carano after 'Mandalorian' star mocks Democrats

'The Mandalorian' star Gina Carano has caused a full-blown Twitter meltdown after sharing a meme claiming that the Democratic Party is trying to swindle Americans, causing #FireGinaCarano to trend on the platform.

The image, which shows two men placing face masks over their eyes, reads: "Democratic government leaders now recommends (sic) we all wear blindfolds along with masks so we can't see what's really going on."

The outspoken MMA-fighter-turned-actress has been in the crosshairs of the PC police for days after publicly doubting the integrity of the 2020 election results. But the meme in question appears to have been the last straw for many internet guardians of righteousness, and by Saturday night #FireGinaCarano was trending in the United States.

With Sputnik V, Russia takes on Western Big Pharma giants in fight for multi-billion-dollar global Covid-19 vaccine business

Russia was widely criticized when it became the first country in the world to register a coronavirus vaccine in August. It was accused of rushing through the approval of the 'Sputnik V' formula for political or propaganda gain.

Since then the whole development of the vaccine has been dogged by Schadenfreude as the press leapt on signs of impropriety in the data, and Russia has even been accused of stealing the technology.

But the markets jumped when US pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, together with the German research company BioNtech, announced that their offering has shown 90 percent efficacy in Phase III trials. Investment banks immediately upgraded their 2021 outlooks for a scenario in which some sort of normalcy returns.

In the meantime, Sputnik V's clinical Phase III trials are halfway through and no major problems with the formula have come up yet. About half of the 40,000 volunteers in the research have been given both shots to no major ill effect. And the day after Pfizer's announcement, the producers released preliminary results that suggests Sputnik V has 92 percent efficacy.

Escaping the urban liberal hellscape: 300,000 households flee as lockdowns & surging crime sour residents on the Big Apple

More than 300,000 New Yorkers have bailed from the Big Apple in the last eight months, new stats show.

City residents filed 295,103 change of address requests from March 1 through Oct. 31, according to data The Post obtained from the US Postal Service under a Freedom of Information Act request.

Since the data details only when 11 or more forwarding requests were made to a particular county outside NYC, the number of moves is actually higher. And a single address change could represent an entire household, which means far more than 300,000 New Yorkers fled the five boroughs.

Whatever the exact number, the exodus — which began when COVID-19 hit the city in early spring — is much greater than in prior years. From just March through July, there were 244,895 change of address requests to destinations outside of the city, more than double the 101,342 during the same period in 2019.

The escape from New York is fueled not only by coronavirus concerns, but economic worries, school chaos and rising crime, experts say.


Comment: But our fearless leaders want to lockdown again and reduce police presence in cities. They really could care less about their constituents, it's all about controlling the population.

Law enforcement officers detain an opposition supporter during a rally to protest against the Belarus presidential election results in Minsk, on November 15, 2020.
Tens of thousands of people again took to the streets of cities across Belarus on Sunday, as post election protests continue. This weekend saw heightened tensions following the alleged killing of an opposition activist by police.

Demonstrators in the capital Minsk clashed with OMON, the country's specialist riot squad, and members of the military who were deployed by authorities in an attempt to stymie the rallies, footage from the scene showed. Security forces used flash grenades to disperse crowds, according to local media. Plumes of tear gas rose into the sky as columns of marchers headed for the center of the city.

At least 500 people were reportedly detained across Belarus on Sunday, according to observers from Viasna, which is funded by a London-based Belarusian businessman though not registered with authorities in Minsk. While the majority were arrested in the capital, others were reportedly picked up by officers in Brest and Molodechno, as well as Vitebsk, Gomel, Grodno and other regions.

F(und) the police: Minneapolis allocates $500k to hire cops from other departments amid officer shortage - imagine that!

Police block traffic as demonstrators march on to highway I-94 on November 4, 2020 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Minneapolis, ground zero for the continuing BLM protests, has approved a plan to add more law enforcement personnel to the city's police department for the remainder of 2020, allocating nearly $500,000 to the force.

The decision was narrowly passed by the Minneapolis City Council in a 7-6 vote on Friday. The city has allocated $496,800 to bring 20 to 40 additional officers from Hennepin County Sheriff's Office and Metro Transit, who will be helping the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) from November 15 till the end of the year.

The idea to bring in reinforcements was floated by the city's police chief, Medaria Arradondo, who revealed that nearly 500 people have been wounded by gunfire so far this year throughout the city.

"Our resources are hemorrhaging," Arradondo told the city council on Tuesday.
"Our city is bleeding at this moment. I'm trying to do all I can to stop that bleeding and I'm hoping that, having the funds to launch a citywide joint enforcement team initiative, we can try to stop the bleeding in our city."



Comment: So, apparently, are the people! This needs more than a pinch-hit reinforcement band-aid.
