Wisconsin recount would cost Trump campaign $7.9 million: Elections Commission

Election officials count absentee ballots in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Nov. 4, 2020.
A recount of unofficial results in the state of Wisconsin would cost President Donald Trump $7.9 million upfront, the Wisconsin Elections Commission said Monday.

The Trump campaign on Nov. 7 took steps to seek a statewide recount after Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was declared the projected winner in the state by his campaign and several news outlets on Nov 4.

Biden has more than a 20,000-vote lead over Trump in Wisconsin, according to The Associated Press and Decision Desk. According to the unofficial results, Biden has 49.5 percent of the vote, while Trump has 48.9 percent. A trailing candidate is allowed to seek a recount under state law if the margin of a race is within 1 percentage point.

Comment: UPDATE from CBS:
Trump campaign transfers $3 million to Wisconsin for recount
Caitlin Conant, November 19, 2020 / 3:31 AM / CBS News

President Trump's campaign will seek a recount in two Wisconsin counties, it said Wednesday, alleging without presenting evidence that absentee ballots were illegally issued and altered, and county clerks advised voters on how to skirt the state's voter ID laws, according to CBS News campaign reporters Nicole Sganga, Adam Brewster and CBS News digital reporter Melissa Quinn.

The campaign said it is filing a petition with the Wisconsin Elections Commission for recounts in Milwaukee and Dane counties, due to the purported irregularities and has transferred $3 million to the state to cover the cost of the recounts.

"The people of Wisconsin deserve to know whether their election processes worked in a legal and transparent way," Jim Troupis, counsel to the campaign, said in a statement. "Regrettably, the integrity of the election results cannot be trusted without a recount in these two counties and uniform enforcement of Wisconsin absentee ballot requirements. We will not know the true results of the election until only the legal ballots cast are counted."

Late Wednesday night, the Wisconsin commission agreed to issue an order to recount the ballots cast in the two counties. The vote was unanimous and came near the end of a six hours-plus meeting, Brewster reports. The session was filled with intense partisan bickering and several 3-3 deadlocked decisions along party lines.

CBS News projected President-elect Joe Biden won the state of Wisconsin and its 10 electoral votes by more than 20,500 votes. In Dane County, Mr. Biden leads Mr. Trump by more than 181,000 votes, and in Milwaukee County, the president-elect is ahead by more than 182,000 votes. Reversing that lead would be nearly impossible, as even statewide recounts typically change voting totals by just hundreds of votes.

"They've actually limited their ability to potentially overcome the relatively large 20,000-vote margin, by looking at only a small portion of Wisconsin overall," CBS News election law expert David Becker said. "So it's almost impossible -- even with a statewide recount -- that they would be able to net even a tiny fraction of the 20,000-vote margin. And they're only looking at a small portion of Wisconsin, so the likelihood is even less. Their chances are about as close to zero as you can get."



Scytl voting software has all the tools it needs for election fraud

Free Press readers may be familiar with Scytl, the promoter of online and mobile voting, and their apparent connections to the intelligence community. Renewed research into Scytl has revealed new connections to the intelligence community, new market positioning, and new opportunities for both personalized surveillance and electronic election fraud.

Scytl's 2012 entry into the American election market occurred through the purchase of SOE software, a Tampa based manufacturer of election management and reporting software known as the Clarity suite. Scytl initially maintained essentially a front address in Virginia while digesting SOE during the the 2012 election cycle. Since then there has been a pattern of SOE rebranding and reorganizing itself along with a merger and new set of strategic partnerships.

Through looking at Scytl's ownership and investors, we can see a more frightening pattern of investment and market synergy. In 2012 the Free Press broke the news of the connection between one Scytl's parent companies, Nauta Capital, and Carrier IQ, a maker of mobile phone applications with obvious spyware uses. Nauta's expansion into this market sector along with an expansion into mobile devices, voice bio-metrics, social network monitoring, online gaming, and cloud computing should raise an eyebrow.

Comment: What a rat's nest of deep state creatures, all scratching each others' backs.

Republican mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania not registered in state data, hundreds of voters say - sign of much bigger problem - UPDATE: More results in!

Mail-in ballots in their envelopes await processing at the Los Angeles County Registrar Recorders' mail-in ballot processing center in Pomona, California, on Oct. 28, 2020.
More than 400 Republican voters in Pennsylvania say they requested mail-in ballots and returned them to vote, but the state absentee voting data say the ballots weren't returned, according to a fraud detection team that contacted the voters.

And more than 500 voters said they received mail-in ballots despite not requesting them, according to the team.

The team was put together by Matt Braynard, former data and strategy director for President Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign. The team analyzed the data and set up a call center to verify election inconsistencies in several states, including Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Arizona, where the Trump campaign is contesting the results.

Of the "many thousands" called, the team managed to reach 1,706 Pennsylvania registered Republican voters who, according to the state data, received mail-in ballots, Braynard said in a Nov. 16 series of tweets and later in an email to The Epoch Times.

Nearly a third of the voters (556) said they never requested the ballot.

Of the 1,137 who did request a ballot, nearly 40 percent (453) said they mailed the ballots back, but the state data show the ballots weren't received or counted, Braynard said.

If the results are representative of the whole state, they could throw into question the election result.

Some 165,000 Pennsylvania Republicans were mailed ballots but weren't marked as having returned them, Braynard said.

Comment: If the ratio holds, that's potentially 65,739 uncounted Trump votes. Add that to the other problem ballots listed below, and Biden has a problem, Dominion or no.

Former Vice President Joe Biden currently leads by fewer than 75,000 votes in the state, according to unofficial results.

Comment: Braynard has provided additional results from his data analysis and phone survey for the swing states:

That's potentially 56,300 votes uncounted. While Braynard didn't break down these numbers by Party, as he did for Pennsylvania, who wants to bet that the vast majority of uncounted votes went for Trump?


Thousands line up in Dallas for North Texas Food Bank's 'largest mobile food distribution ever'

food bank line up
Thousands of families lined up in Dallas on Saturday for a giveaway hosted by the North Texas Food Bank, and the organization called it its largest ever.

Organizers said the NTFB gave away over 7,000 turkeys and around 600,000 pounds of food in Fair Park to those families in need as the holidays approach and the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

Saturday's event was also the the NTFB's fifth food giveaway in Fair Park since the pandemic began in March.

Aerial views of the event showed lines of vehicles throughout the morning as volunteers placed boxes of food inside trunks.

Comment: Sadly, we've been seeing more and more of this sort of thing lately - and as the economic and food production conditions continue to deteriorate, we are likely to see a marked increase in food insecurity and desperation - and not just in the US:


Wisconsin BLM leader arrested following rape investigation

Frank David Sensabaugh
A prominent Black Lives Matter leader in Milwaukee, Wisc. has been arrested on suspicion of rape following a sex crime investigation.

Frank David Sensabaugh, a 39-year-old rapper who goes by "Frank Nitty," was arrested by Milwaukee police on suspicion of felony third-degree sexual assault on Monday night. He filmed the arrest on Facebook live.

Sensabaugh rose to prominence as a BLM activist following the death of George Floyd. He organized and led numerous protests in Milwaukee, Kenosha and other cities.

Comment: Charming.

Black activists in Portland "want nothing to do" with the city's leftist anarchists

we don't want biden we want revenge
The black activist community in Portland is putting some distance between itself and the anarchists roaming the city, using the @safePDXprotest Twitter account to mobilize.

That's because the election of Joe Biden, seen as a victory by many protesters and by many in the Black Lives Matter movement, simply isn't enough for the anarchists in Portland. In fact, Biden's election actually "exposed their differences with the Black activists they claim to support," according to the LA Times.

The group of anarchists, very likely unsure of exactly what they are protesting for at this point, recently gathered after Joe Biden's "victory" in the most recent election. Spurred by a call to action by the Twitter account, about 50 people gathered around one "young man" to lambaste "liberals for celebrating the defeat of President Trump while capitalism and the political system remained entrenched."

Comment: Given the fractional nature of postmodernist ideology, it was only a matter of time before we saw fractionalism among the protesters themselves. At the end of the day, the nihilistic 'let-it-all-burn' ideology of Antifa, and those of their ilk, is not compatible with the deluded racial justice movement. Their methods may have overlapped for a time, but in the end, they want very different things.

Michigan's Wayne County certifies election results after initial deadlock - UPDATE: Repub. Election Board members reverse vote, no certification

Absentee ballots are processed at the central counting board in Detroit, Mich., on Nov. 4, 2020.
Michigan's most populous county reversed course on Nov. 17 and unanimously certified its Nov. 3 election results, shortly after two GOP members of Michigan's Wayne County Board of Canvassers cast a vote against the move which resulted in a deadlocked 2-2 vote.

The unanimous vote to certify the results came on the condition that the secretary of state's office conduct a comprehensive audit of the unexplained precincts across the county.

The abrupt reversal followed a Tuesday evening meeting, during which Board Chairwoman Monica Palmer and William Hartmann, both Republicans, initially cast votes against certifying the results, while Democrats Allen Wilson and Board Vice Chair Jonathan Kinloch voted in favor of certification.

Palmer had said her refusal to certify results for the county's 43 jurisdictions, including Detroit, was based on the fact that she and Hartmann believe that they "do not have complete and accurate information in those poll books."

She also said that while she would have been open to certifying election results in some jurisdictions, others including Detroit — the state's largest voting jurisdiction — have recorded unexplained discrepancies.

After the four board members cast their votes, Palmer and Hartmann listened to a number of spectators over Zoom, who criticized their decision, The Associated Press reported.

Comment: Michigan's secretary of state, Jocelyn Benson, wrote off the errors in those precincts as follows:
"What was identified were bookkeeping errors, simply incidents where voters may have showed up to a precinct but maybe have ultimately decided not to vote and leave, or perhaps ballots placed in an envelope that then should go through a machine, just different things that occurred throughout the day when you have a very high turnout election that oftentimes aren't fully reflected in the bookkeeping," Benson, a Democrat, said during a virtual appearance on CNN's "New Day."
Clear as mud! Here are the specifics the GOP members are alleging:

Check out this deranged freak-job:

The Republicans who flipped their votes were called racist and not-so-subtly threatened on the zoom call.

UPDATE: In another turnaround, the Republican members who changed their votes have rescinded their votes, thus blocking the certification process.
In an extraordinary turnabout that foreshadows possible legal action, the two GOP members of Wayne County's election board signed affidavits Wednesday night alleging they were bullied and misled into approving election results in Michigan's largest metropolis and do not believe the votes should be certified until serious irregularities in Detroit votes are resolved.

The statements by Wayne County Board of Canvassers Chairwoman Monica Palmer and fellow GOP member William C. Hartmann rescinding their votes from a day earlier threw into question anew whether Michigan's presidential vote currently favoring Democrat Joe Biden will be certified. They also signaled a possible legal confrontation ahead.

"I voted not to certify, and I still believe this vote should not be certified," Hartmann said in his affidavits. "Until these questions are addressed, I remain opposed to certification of the Wayne County results."

Added Palmer in her affidavit: "I rescind my prior vote to certify Wayne County elections."

Both GOP board members said their concerns included discrepancies in nearly three quarters of Detroit's precinct poll books where ballots are supposed to be matched to qualified voters.

"The Wayne County election had serious process flaws which deserve investigation. I continue to ask for information to assure Wayne County voters that these elections were conducted fairly and accurately. Despite repeated requests I have not received the requisite information and believe an additional 10 days of canvas by the State Board of canvassers will help provide the information necessary," Palmer explained.

Their pronouncements come just 24 hours after a chaotic meeting in which the county's election board initially failed to certify the Nov. 3 election results during a 2-2 deadlocked vote when both Palmer and Hartmann voted against certification. But after hours of contentious public comment and criticism -- including Democratic allegations of racism and threats against their safety -- the two GOP members struck a deal to certify the elections in return for a promise of a thorough audit.

Palmer and Hartmann said Wednesday they learned that state officials had reneged or would not honor the audit, leaving them no recourse but to oppose certification until more investigation could be performed.

It is unclear whether the Tuesday night compromise was binding or could be changed. But both GOP members said in the affidavits they felt misled and unduly pressured to change their positions the night earlier.

"The comments made accusations of racism and threatened me and members of my family," Palmer said in her affidavit.

The board members' actions were immediately hailed by Phill Kline, head of the conservative-leaning Thomas More Society's Amistad Project, which has been contesting election irregularities in several key battleground states like Michigan.

"I'm pleased Mr. Hartmann and Ms. Palmer reiterated their opposition to the certification of the Wayne County results despite bullying and threats and in the face of broken promises by Michigan's Secretary of State," Kline told Just the News. "Mr. Hartman is properly demanding answers from Wayne County election officials."

And here's another witness to the fraud in Detroit:

Karamo describes witnessing the 3:30 am Biden ballot dump. You know, the one the media constantly says didn't exist.
Karamo saw that there was no effective review of signatures on those ballots at the counting boards. She describes seeing ballots that should have been spoiled, instead counted for Biden, with poll workers saying "I think that should go to the Democrat." Her challenges to bad ballots were IGNORED.

She also describes that GOP Poll Challengers would not be hired by the City of Detroit, helping to explain what other witnesses have also described: a completely lopsided ratio of Democrats to Republicans, ensuring that Republicans could not protect the integrity of the ballot counting process in Detroit. Karamo describes calling and attempting to apply several times to be an official poll worker and being denied, even though the Clerk lied and told her that not enough Republicans had applied.

According to Karamo the Republicans were systemically denied access to observe the vote count.

"They were like Demons!" Karamo says.


Russ Ramsland of the Allied Security Operations Group: Michigan results are a FRAUD

Election fraud
Via Lou Dobbs Tonight:

Russ Ramsland: We have been out looking mostly at Michigan. We are beginning on turning our sights on Pennsylvania and Georgia. The things you find in Michigan are amazing. There are over 3,000 precincts where the presidential votes cast compared to the estimated voters from the SOS (Secretary of State) is 99% all the way up to 350%. Those kind of numbers don't exist in the real world.

So where did all those votes come from? And looking at that, we've gone back and looked at some of these huge vote dumps that were mostly Biden's. We call them spikes. We've gone back and traced the spikes. We've seen where they were cast, primarily in four counties. We looked at how long it took to cast those votes. And we looked at the equipment that exists at all of those locations by serial number. And the fact of the matter is we can't see any physical way possible for some of those votes to have been in those kind of numbers because they just don't have the equipment that can produce it in that timing.

Comment: Here's is Ramsland's affidavit:


In Nevada, a corrupt cash-for-votes scheme is hiding in plain sight

Native American cash for votes in Nevada

It should surprise no one that Nevada has problems with election security and voter fraud, especially after the state mailed an absentee ballot to every registered voter this year whether he requested one or not, then received back more than eight times as many mail-in ballots as they did in 2016. That's part of the reason Republicans in Nevada filed another lawsuit on Tuesday alleging widespread voter fraud and irregularities.

The mass mailing of unsolicited ballots is of course a recipe for fraud, even more so in a state where the voter rolls contain tens of thousands of people who haven't voted or updated their records in more than a decade. This is how you get dead people voting, as we reported here at The Federalist and as Tucker Carlson noted last week.

But there's another, less sensational but perhaps more consequential election scandal in Nevada that hasn't yet made headlines, even though it's been hiding in plain sight for weeks now. Under the guise of supposedly nonprofit, nonpartisan get-out-the-vote campaigns, Native American voter advocacy groups in Nevada handed out gift cards, electronics, clothing, and other items to voters in tribal areas, in many cases documenting the exchange of ballots for "prizes" on their own Facebook pages, sometimes even while wearing official Joe Biden campaign gear.
