'No this is Trump': Georgia recount auditor claims multiple Trump ballots fraudulently called for Biden

Vote ballot examiner

A GOP recount observer in Georgia claims that several ballots recorded as Biden were actually votes for Trump, and workers conducting the recount became angry when he reported what was happening to elections officials.

The insider told Project Veritas:
"The second person was supposed to be checking it right, three times in three minutes she called out Biden. The second auditor caught it and she said, "No, this is Trump.""

"Now, that's just while I'm standing there. So, does the second checker catch it every time? But this lady in three times in three minutes from 2:09 to 2:12 she got three wrong. They were calling their bosses. They were pointing at me..."

A man caught on video sucker-punching a Trump supporter in Washington, D.C., this weekend is also a registered child sex offender.

New film, designed as love letter to climate change's child deity Greta Thunberg, actually portrays terrified, badly misled girl

'I Am Greta' (2020) Dir: Nathan Grossman
The new documentary I Am Greta follows the Swedish soothsayer from when she began her protests in 2018 to today. It was intended to show her global campaigning impact, but my feeling after watching it was just one of pity.

"I don't actually see the world in black and white. It's just the climate issue I see in black and white. Sometimes I feel that it might be good if everyone had a bit of Asperger's. At least when it comes to the climate."

These are the closing remarks from the star of I Am Greta, about the climate-campaigning sensation Greta Thunberg. But perhaps those comments tell us more about the state of politics today than they do about the climate issue.

Comment: Those who have really looked into Thunberg's trajectory from obscure protesting student to voice on the world platform, have long since realized she is a product, a brand created to market a particular form of ecofacism to gullible youth. Unsupervised and unscripted, she is barely able to hold her own in a normal social situation. Her parents should be charged with abuse for allowing her to be exploited.

'Customers are calling us crying': scams and soaring prices as Californians move out

The moving business is booming in San Francisco.


With housing prices and wildfires driving residents away, the moving business is booming - bringing its own set of problems.


Record numbers of residents have been leaving California in recent years, but in 2020 the growth of remote work, the lure of cheaper housing and a summer of unprecedented wildfires has accelerated the trend. As a result, the moving business in San Francisco's Bay Area is booming, but the surge has come with its own set of problems.

Moving trucks are hard to find, prices to get out of the Bay are being pushed sky-high, and the supply side of the market - with high starting costs and because movers are required to obtain state licenses - has been slow to respond.

The shortage has created openings for an underground moving economy complete with scammers who take advantage of desperate California escapees, left without easy options.

Swedish prosecution decides Quran burning not illegal: It is an 'impossible to prove crime'

A copy of the Quran
Earlier this year, a video of a smouldering Quran set afire in Malmö, Sweden, by Danish Hard Line party members sparked violent Islamic riots, which led to dozens of arrests and several convictions. This act was followed by several similar torchings.

Setting a copy of the Quran on fire in August didn't constitute incitement against an ethnic group, the Swedish prosecution has ruled, deciding to drop a preliminary investigation into the matter.

"It is not possible to prove that a crime has been committed, burning a Quran in itself is not illegal", chamber prosecutor Sofia Syrén told national broadcaster SVT.

According to her, the assessment was based on witness information and videos from the scene. While the Swedish media and most politicians equivocally condemned the Quran burning as a provocation, the prosecution found no legal grounds to press charges.

The interpretation of (the Left's) dreams

left dreams
"Why do we dream? Freud's answer is deceptively simple: the ultimate function of the dream is to enable the dreamer to stay asleep." Slavoj Zizek (2006)
Traditional Left Ideology sets out a vision of how the world 'ought to be.' The Left's view can be summed up as the belief that social justice is the primary requirement for improving the world, and that this better future entails the pursuit of equality in various forms. The Left ideologist believes that it is both ethical and moral to attempt to approach equality in terms of civil rights and material wealth.

But if the Left focuses on 'what could be,' the Right focuses on 'what is.' If the Left operates where people 'could be,' the Right operates where people 'are' or at least, where they believe themselves to be. The Right does not aim to change human social reality but rather to celebrate, and to even maximize it.

Left ideology, accordingly, is shaped like a 'dream.' Aiming for what 'ought to be' rather than 'what is' induces a level of utopian illusory detachment and depicts a phantasmal egalitarian world often removed from our abusive, oppressive and doomed reality. In this phantasmic future, people will just drift away from greed and gluttony, they will work less and learn to share, even to share that which they may not possess to start with.

Comment: We think that there's a good chance that the Left is in for yet another rude awakening. And another. And another...

Bannon's war room removed from Spotify

steve bannon's war room
War Room's hundreds of episodes no longer appear on the popular streaming platform - the latest big tech company to crack down on the podcast featuring former White House Chief Strategist Bannon, National Pulse Editor-in-Chief Raheem Kassam, and Jack Maxey.

This comes as the show doubled down on its effort to expose the left's attempts to steal the 2020 election from President Trump.

Comment: It sounds similar to the ongoing issues Joe Rogan is having with the platform. Rogan seems from the outside to be able to continue with his show unhindered. But Bannon, lacking the same massive audience, probably doesn't have the same pull, so he's canned.

Second Georgia county finds previously uncounted votes in lacklustre hand recount - poll challenger reveals recount fraud

A second Georgia county has uncovered a trove of votes not previously included in election results, but the additional votes won't change the overall outcome of the presidential race, the secretary of state's office said Tuesday.

A memory card that hadn't been uploaded in Fayette County, just south of Atlanta, was discovered during a hand tally of the votes in the presidential race that stems from part of a legally mandated audit to ensure the new election machines counted the votes accurately, said Gabriel Sterling, a top official in the secretary of state's office.

The memory card's 2,755 votes are not enough to flip the lead in the state from Democrat Joe Biden to Republican President Donald Trump. The breakdown of the uncounted ballots was 1,577 for Trump, 1,128 for Biden, 43 for Libertarian Jo Jorgensen and seven write-ins, Sterling said.

Election officials on Monday said Floyd County, in north Georgia, had found more than 2,500 ballots that hadn't been previously scanned.

Both counties will have to recertify their results, and the margin between Trump and Biden will be about 13,000 votes when those previously uncounted votes are accounted for, Sterling said.

Comment:


The most this recount will tell us is how close the original counting of votes was to the recount. Without a signature check, it will not invalidate the many votes which should have been validated originally. In other words, all they're doing is recounting potentially fraudulent votes. Trump has pointed this out, and he's right.


It will not be able to identify any other potential voter fraud that wasn't initially identified in the first count.


Then there are the problems with the recount itself. Project Veritas spoke with a ballot challenger who observed votes for Trump being called as votes for Biden:


Meanwhile, Wayne County (Detroit) in Michigan is not certifying their election results. The number of ballots does not match the number of voters. Big surprise. The discrepancies are minor, but even that might be expected when using an algorithm to assign fractional votes to candidates.

A London gym owner has been handed a £67,000 fine for refusing to close during England's second national lockdown. Andreas Michli, 34, finally shut the doors to his Wood Green gym on Wednesday after police prevented customers entering.

Haringey council issued multiple fines against Michli over his Zone Gym business and said it obtained a closure order. Alongside the £67,000 fine, Michli said the council was also seeking to recoup court costs of £7,500.

Michli, who has owned the gym for five years, said he felt keeping it open was "the right thing to do socially, morally and scientifically". "There were a lot of reasons why I didn't close. I couldn't actually find a reason why to not keep it open, other than there was legislation in place," he told PA news agency.

Latino voters who fled dictatorships fear election was stolen from President Trump

latinos for trump
Two years after Fidel Castro's takeover of Cuba in 1959, Margarita De Castro was in trouble.

The communist government was imposing its will across the island, and picketers demanded the young telephone operator face a firing squad after she was accused of setting fire to Havana's largest department store. Terrified, she snuck out of her job at the telephone company where protesters were gathered and called her father, who paid $8,000 for someone to forge the date on her expired passport. She fetched some clothes and her diamond ring from an armoire in her home, kissed her newborn son goodbye and boarded a flight to Miami.

Alone and penniless, she began her life in the United States, working at a Miami Beach hotel, eventually becoming a banker and raising four sons on her own.

The 79-year-old refugee said her experience in Cuba drove her to become a Republican, voting for the GOP in almost every election since becoming a citizen in 1972. She never seriously felt that communism could follow her to the United States - until the 2020 presidential election.
