Absentee ballots are processed at the central counting board in Detroit, Mich., on Nov. 4, 2020.
Yesterday, data scientist Sarah Eaglesfield tweeted about some interesting facts she uncovered while looking into Wayne County, Michigan's voter data from the November 2020 election. Her data, so far, explores cluster votes in Michigan's Wayne County, where hundreds of affidavits have been filed sharing eye-witness accounts of voter fraud and intimidation by paid election workers and officials and Democrat activists present at the TCF Center, where absentee ballots were processed.

Eaglesfield's tweet reads:


Today, Sarah Eaglesfield shared the data she used to obtain the information she shared on Twitter yesterday. She tagged Michigan's Democrat Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson (who insists there was no voter fraud or intimidation of poll challengers in Wayne Co), Trump attorney Sidney Powell, President Trump, Joe Biden.


Comment: Another Michigan witness is on record saying she observed the 4 a.m. Biden ballot dump, as well as officials tampering with the ballot tabulators. Articia Bomer describes:
  • Hearing an announcement of 50 boxes at 4am: the Biden Ballot Dump!
  • Hearing that the Biden Ballot Dump was counted and processed in an impossibly short amount of time
  • Witnessing officials TAMPERING with tabulators at the TCF Center!
  • Ballot harvesting operations being done by a local Church
  • Poll workers overriding the actual votes, and changing Trump votes to BIDEN!
  • Poll workers REFUSING TO COUNT Trump votes!
  • Poll workers bringing in luggage and boxes that could have contained illegal ballots
  • Poll Workers using deceitful tactics and colluding with Democrats to try and EXPEL GOP Poll Challengers
  • GOP Poll Challengers being EJECTED from observing the vote count
  • GOP Poll Challengers were observing ILLEGAL BALLOTS and their objections were IGNORED
  • Poll workers being obvious Democrat PARTISANS
  • Suspicious meetings of the poll workers
"Now? I don't have faith in any election system after having witnessed this fraud happen right before my eyes," Bomer said.

Researchers find critical 'backdoor' in Swiss online voting system developed by Scytl

Researchers have found a severe issue in the new Swiss internet voting system that they say would let someone alter votes undetected. They say it should put a halt to Switzerland's plan to roll out the system in real elections this year.

An international group of researchers who have been examining the source code for an internet voting system Switzerland plans to roll out this year have found a critical flaw in the code that would allow someone to alter votes without detection.

The cryptographic backdoor exists in a part of the system that is supposed to verify that all of the ballots and votes counted in an election are the same ones that voters cast. But the flaw could allow someone to swap out all of the legitimate ballots and replace them with fraudulent ones, all without detection.

"The vulnerability is astonishing," said Matthew Green, who teaches cryptography at Johns Hopkins University and did not do the research but read the researchers' report. "In normal elections, there is no single person who could undetectably defraud the entire election. But in this system they built, there is a party who could do that."

Comment: The the problems with Scytl (and all its descendants) have been known for some time, yet officials continue to utilize them. Three guesses why(though you should only need one).

Georgia election systems could have been hacked before 2016 vote

Georgia has been at the center of questions about voter security, due to the fact the state has used insecure paperless voting machines since 2002.
A Georgia election server contains evidence that it was possibly hacked before the 2016 presidential election and the 2018 vote that gave Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp a narrow victory over Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams, according to an election security expert.

The incident, which occurred in late 2014, long before either of those elections, not only calls into question the integrity of Georgia's voting machines during critical elections, but raises new questions about whether attackers were able to manipulate election data and voter information through the compromised server.

It's unclear who may have carried out the alleged attack or if voter information was altered, but Logan Lamb, the election security expert who uncovered the activity, believes that if hackers did breach the server, they could have gained "almost total control of the server, including abilities to modify files, delete data, and install malware."

Audit says officials took freebies from voting machine firms

Pennsylvania's elected auditor says officials in 18 of the 67 counties reported accepting gifts, meals or trips from firms competing to sell new voting machines ahead of the 2020 elections.

Pennsylvania's elected auditor says officials in 18 of the 67 counties reported accepting gifts, meals or trips from firms competing to sell new voting machines ahead of the 2020 elections.

Democratic Auditor General Eugene DePasquale said Friday that accepting the gifts is wrong, even if officials took no action in return.

DePasquale says the gifts included expense-paid travel to destinations including Las Vegas, tickets to a wine festival and distillery tour, dinners at high-end restaurants, tickets to an amusement park and an open bar at a conference for elections officials.

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf is pressing counties to buy voting machines with voter-auditable paper backups ahead of the 2020 election.

Former Chairman of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons committee on COVID: "This is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public"

Dr. Roger Hodkinson

Dr. Roger Hodkinson, former Chairman of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons committee in Ottawa.
Dr. Roger Hodkinson is the former Chairman of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons committee in Ottawa, he was once CEO of a large private medical laboratory in Edmonton, Alberta, and for the past 20 years has held the position as Chairman of a Medical Biotechnology company based in North Carolina currently tasked with selling a COVID-19 test. He is a medical specialist in pathology, which includes virology, who trained at Cambridge University in the UK — he is perfectly positioned to speak on this topic.

In a recent Edmonton City Council Community and Public Services Committee meeting (the audio from which is currently gaining traction on YouTube), Dr. Hodkinson says: "The bottom line is there is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It's outrageous. This is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.

"[COVID-19] is nothing more than a bad flu season. This is not Ebola. It's not SARS. It's politics playing medicine, and that's a very dangerous game."

Here's the full transcript from Celia Farber:
Thank you very much. I do appreciate the opportunity to address you on this very important matter. What I'm going to say is lay language, and blunt. It is counter-narrative, and so you don't immediately think I'm a quack I'm going to to briefly outline my credentials so that you can understand where I'm coming from in terms of knowledge base in all of this.

I'm a medical specialist in pathology which includes virology. I trained at Cambridge University in the UK. I'm the ex-president of the pathology section of the Medical Association. I was previously an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Medicine doing a lot of teaching. I was The Chairman of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada Examination Committee and Pathology in Ottawa but more to the point I'm currently the chairman of a bio technology company in North Carolina selling the COVID-19 test.

And [inaudible] you might say I know a little bit about all of this. The bottom line is simply this:

There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians. It's outrageous. This is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public. There is absolutely nothing that can be done to contain this virus. Other than protecting older, more vulnerable people. It should be thought of as nothing more than a bad flu season.

This is not Ebola. It's not SARS. It's politics playing medicine and that's avery dangerous game. There is no action of any kind needed other than what happened last year when we felt unwell. We stayed home, we took chicken noodle soup, we didn't visit granny, and we decided when we would return to work. We didn't need anyone to tell us.

Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence base for their effectiveness whatsoever. Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue signaling. They're not even worn effectively most of the time. It's utterly ridiculous. Seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people- I'm not saying that in a pejorative sense-seeing these people walking around like lemmings, obeying without any knowledge base, to put the mask on their face.

Social distancing is also useless because Covid is spread by aerosols which travels 30 meters or so before landing. Enclosures have had such terrible unintended consequences. Everywhere should be opened tomorrow as well as was stated in the Great Barrington declaration that I circulated prior to this meeting.

And a word on testing: I do want to emphasize that I'm in the business of testing for Covid. I do want to emphasize that positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infection. It's simply driving public hysteria and all testing should stop. Unless you're presenting to hospital with some respiratory problem.

All that should be done is to protect the vulnerable and to give them all in the nursing homes that are under your control, give them all 3000 to 5000 international units of vitamin D every day which has been shown to radically reduce the likelihood of Infection.

And I would remind you all that using the province's own statistics, the risk of death under 65 in this province is one in 300,000. One in 300,000.

You've got to get a grip on this. The scale of the response that you are undertaking with no evidence for it is utterly ridiculous given the consequences of acting in a way that you're proposing. All kinds of suicides, business closures, funerals, weddings etc. it's simply outrageous!

It's just another bad flu and you've got to get your minds around that. Let people make their own decisions. You should be totally out of the business of medicine. You're being led down the garden path by the chief medical officer of health for this province. I am absolutely outraged that this is reached this level. It should all stop tomorrow. Thank you very much.

Kyle Rittenhouse released from jail on $2 million bond UPDATE: AOC is outraged, 'Protection of white supremacy'

Kyle Rittenhouse
Illinois teenager Kyle Rittenhouse was released Friday from law enforcement custody after posting a $2 million bail.

Rittenhouse was charged with first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, and attempted first-degree intentional homicide following the August 25th deaths of Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum in Kenosha Wisconsin during riots sparked by the police-involved shooting of Jacob Blake. Rittenhouse allegedly shot three people, two of whom succumbed to their wounds.

"Kyle Rittenhouse's bond was posted this afternoon at about 2:00 pm which was set up through his attorney," said Kenosha County Sheriff's Sgt. David Wright. "He is no longer in custody at the Kenosha County Jail."

Comment: As could be expected, the woke brigade are outraged. From RT:
'Protection of white supremacy': AOC leads liberal outrage after Kenosha shooter Rittenhouse released on bail
21 Nov, 2020 22:02

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York) and other liberals have pointed to Kyle Rittenhouse's $2 million bail and release as an example of white supremacy in the justice system.

"Does anyone believe Rittenhouse would be released if he were Muslim & did the same thing in a diff context?" Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Saturday.

Rittenhouse's expensive release is proof of "systematic racism," according to the congresswoman.

"For people who say 'systemic racism doesn't exist,' this is what it looks like: protection of white supremacy baked deep into our carceral systems," she wrote.


Ocasio-Cortez is far from the only outspoken liberal to use Rittenhouse's release to push arguments about racism in the US' justice system.

New York Times writer Wajahat Ali deemed Rittenhouse a "murderer made into a hero" following his release.

"White supremacy is the sickness of America," he added.





Rittenhouse is charged with first degree murder over the fatal shooting of two during anti-police brutality protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin over the summer. Rittenhouse will appear back in court in December and maintains that he acted in self defense.

"I feel I had to protect myself," he told The Washington Post about the shooting. "I would have died that night if I didn't."

Rittenhouse said he was carrying a gun for protection on the night of the shootings, but intended only to provide medical care for those who got injured during the demonstrations, as well as to protect businesses from looting and vandalism.

In regards to the shooting incident, Rittenhouse has claimed he was defending a business from rioting protesters when he was attacked.

The 17-year-old has not been without support. Supporters claim the teenager acted in self defense, and his bail was partly funded by My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell and actor Ricky Schroder, both of whom received pushback on social media for their involvement with Rittenhouse.

Whoa: Nearly a third of Democrats believe the election was stolen from Trump

trump supporters stop the steal

While the election hasn't been certified, and the results are pending litigation, the media has effectively crowned Joe Biden the victor in the 2020 election, and voters have some strong opinions on the matter.

According to a Rasmussen poll conducted November 17-18, nearly half of likely voters, 47 percent, believe the election was stolen from Trump. If Joe Biden is ultimately certified as the winner, there will undoubtedly be a big fat asterisk on his presidency. This should be very concerning for Joe Biden. President George W. Bush had the 2000 election cast a dark shadow over his presidency, with many Democrats to this day refusing to acknowledge his presidency as legitimate. If Biden is confident in the legitimacy of the results as they stand now, he should be willing to let the process continue, and should publicly express his support for this.

Comment: It's nice to see that even some Democrats are capable of seeing the obvious.

Newsom and his soul brother, Joe Isuzu.
Sheriffs in five Southern California counties with a total population of 17.25 million people — equivalent to the fifth most populous state — are defying that state's governor. They will not arrest people for violating the statewide curfew that Governor Gavin Newsom has imposed starting today, apparently on the belief that the virus wakes up and goes out at 10 P.M.

Bill Melugin of KTTV, Fox 11 in Los Angeles (hat tip: Breitbart) contacted them about enforcing the statewide curfew:

Turkey bans smoking in public areas amid surge of COVID-19 patients

Turkey on Wednesday banned smoking in crowded public places to slow a recent surge in symptomatic coronavirus patients, the Interior Minister said, as the government warned citizens to abide by protective measures.

Daily coronavirus cases in Turkey have recently spiked, with 2,693 patients identified on Wednesday. Ankara only reports the number of those who show symptoms, a decision which critics have said hides the true scale of the outbreak in the country.

In a nationwide notice, the Interior Ministry said the smoking ban aimed to ensure citizens comply with rules to wear protective masks properly in public because people were seen to lower them while smoking.
