It is-obviously-very difficult to get and response from the very people that are going to lose power if one’s claims are true-somehow the “crimes” never seem to get the same level of attention, don’ ‘cha know.
So, how do we describe to the layman what it’s like to watch this fiasco concerning any actual movement on the election fraud front?
Take the example of, say, renting a house.
During the night, you hear scratching sounds in the walls. The eaves are eaten away by rats, and there are rat droppings in the attic. According to our neighbor, she actually saw rats on the roof.
We Call the landlord, he comes over and looks at it. We show him everything and explain what the neighbor said. He then goes away saying, “I don’t see any rats.”.
What are we supposed to do?
Has the landlord’s decision made the rats disappear?
When he said that he didn’t see anything, did the scratching noises stop?
Nope. We still have rats.
All of our friends and neighbors (except for one) tell us to drop it; our landlord says there are no rats.
They were told the same by their landlords.
Therefore, there are no rats in the house-and if you continue to proclaim to the contrary you are going to get labeled as “unstable”, “deranged”, and “looney”.
In the question, “believers” implies that none of the allegations are based on anything but religious faith and zeal, a message propagandists keep harping on. Almost without exception, propagandists, or “deniers,” have never examined any of the evidence.
Because-this is important-they do not want to find out if it is true or not.
Those who have looked pretend it does not exist. Now, it isn’t difficult to locate, but if you don’t look at it, it is hard to assess. It is far easier to defend a position if you never admit the other side has any merit. Religions have been able to make this point-somewhat savagely, at times-over the centuries.
At this point, it is also hard to take it all in if you have been studiously ignoring it for the past two years. A rational decision can be made based on facts and not beliefs if you look at the evidence.
You must “believe” that the evidence doesn’t exist if you are a denier. Simply put, there are no rats. There are four lights. That would require great faith and zeal. It would take a denier at least two years to assimilate and catch up on two years’ worth of developments even if they suddenly decided to look at the evidence.
Mark Twain once commented that it was far easier to fool a man than it was to convince him that he had been fooled.
Of course, that was with the assumption that the fooled man actually wanted to know the truth at some point. But some people do NOT want to know what is going on, especially if it doesn’t fit what they have already decided.
There is a frightening illustration of this in the 1983 movie The Day After-after the nuclear bombs begin hitting, in one scene a houseewife is making the beds. Even as the fireballs flash brightly in through the windows, she continues making the beds as if nothing is happening. It is only when her husband runs in and grabs her to run to the fallout shelters she begins screaming and fighting him, saying that she has to make the beds and he needs to leave her alone to get the housework done.
Absolute refusal to believe what is happening outside the window-and a rather violent reaction to anyone that suggests that her view is not accurate.
Does this sound familiar?
Those who claim that “all of the court cases have been thrown out” rely on an old belief that has never been proven to be true. Only 25 of the 90 court cases were decided on the merits by September 2021.
Of the 25, 18 were decided in favor of Trump or a Republican plaintiff. Not one witness testified in one of the 25 cases.
There has never been a single court case in which first-hand witnesses were heard.
In addition, fraud deniers claim that court decisions constitute evidence. Their assumption seems to be that evidence simply disappears after a court decision or ruling.
I don’t think that it works that way.
Court rulings are not evidence one way or the other.
Despite their legal ramifications, they don’t define reality. Many cases were dismissed because they were without grounds. Some of those plaintiffs were right, the Judge was right; they sought to prove that the results were inaccurate because fraud had occurred, but fraud has to be proven criminally.
The process of prosecuting election fraud can sometimes take years. Courts were not always the proper venue to contest the accuracy of results; the proper venue would have been with the State election officials.
But the state election officials either refused to look at the evidence or refused to take action. It is entirely possible that they were in on the deception; in which case asking them to prosecute themselves would be optimistic to the point of foolishness.
Election officials refused to cooperate, so the next step was to go to the state legislatures. Sometimes, lawmakers took action. It should be noted that getting them moving was typically only achieved after extensive media attention.
By the time the United States began to seriously consider everything, the train had already left the station. Biden has now been duly elected our President and the outcome of the election is no longer in question.
In spite of this, the Legislatures have continued to push for hearings, investigations, and audits because we still need to plug the holes and get rid of the rats.
There have been some results in the fight for election integrity and accountability, but they have taken nearly two years. No one should be surprised that Biden’s DOJ is not interested in pursuing any prosecutions, but in some cases the evidence may force their hand.
In Wisconsin, the Special Counsel’s findings may result in actual fraud being prosecuted for the first time. Wisconsin is the one that some massive irregularities showed up, and the State claimed that it was “too late” to pursue corrective or investigative action.
Highlights include the following: The Wisconsin Election Commission “knowingly and willfully directed all 72 county clerks to violate” the law and allow ballot harvesting in nursing homes
Wisconsin had 4.5 million people of voting age but 7.1 million registered voters. Some 200 addresses in 31 counties have 200 to 400 registered voters at a single address
The Wisconsin Election Commission “knowingly and willfully directed all 72 county clerks to violate” the law and allow ballot harvesting in nursing homes.
93.7% of active voters participated in the election, and strangely enough over 42,000 voters who voted in November are now listed as “inactive”
Perhaps Arizona or Georgia will follow suit soon as well.
In fact, to the total surprise of all, guess what we just found in Texas. Of course, the arguments will downgrade to “well, these won’t make a difference”. Perhaps not; the point is that incompetence (at the very best) or fraud (at the worst) has occurred. So who can say exactly how large or extensive it is? Before the naysayers said “It doesn’t exist-you’re crazy.” Now they have to change their tune to ‘Well, maybe it DOES exist, but it’s too small to make a difference.”
Yes it is too small-just like that first leak in the dike.
During the primary election in Texas, approximately 10,000 ballots were not counted, causing the results to be delayed.
According to the Harris County Elections Office, some 6,000 Democratic votes and 4,000 Republican votes weren’t counted and will be added to the final tally.
So let’s take a gander at some of the spin-doctoring:
“While the votes were scanned into our tabulation computer, they were not transferred and counted as a part of the unofficial final results as they should have been,” the Harris County Elections Office stated over the past weekend. They said it was an “oversight” for the votes not to be counted in Harris County.
Additionally, KHOU-TV reported that officials are hoping to ensure every ballot cast is counted by the canvassing“are focused on ensuring that every ballot cast is accounted for through this canvassing process,” and they “will continue to be transparent in that process through our updates but as you can imagine it is most critical that everyone on our team stay focused and commit all of their time to the task at hand.”
“We will be discussing at commissioners court and that will be an opportunity for broadcast to hear from our office,” the Harris County Elections Office continued.
This verbiage does smack of a company that I worked for “re-organizing to focus on our core values and creating a safe, nurturing work environment for our valuable employees”-six weeks before announcing random drug screening, cutting our pay/hours by 35% and starting huge rounds of layoffs in which we lost 60% of our workforce-many were simply just locked out of their buildings and had to go through a maze of phone calls to find out they weren’t employed anymore.
Earlier this year, Texas passed stricter voting laws that enabled its March 1 primary to be the first election held under those laws. The state rejected thousands of mail-in ballots because they didn’t include new information.
KHOU reported that Harris County Republicans and Democrats believe the issue will be resolved soon following the discovery of the uncounted ballots.
“Every voter regardless of party should be able to have confidence that their vote has been properly counted. Unfortunately, this is another example of the serious mismanagement of [Harris County Judge] Lina Hidalgo’s unqualified Elections Administrator. Isabel Longoria owes all Harris County voters an explanation,” Harris County GOP Chair Cindy Siegel said, according to the news outlet.
On Monday Harris County Republicans filed a lawsuit against Longoria and her office on Monday for committing the “worst elections fiasco in Texas history” by not counting the ballots.
To be fair, Harris County Democratic Party Chair Odus Evbagharu released a statement saying his party is also concerned with the balloting problem.
“We called for a post-election review of all processes—there has not been any skirting of party responsibility, and we have been completely transparent in our desire to dig into the details of what went wrong and identify how to make corrections moving forward,” Evbagharu remarked.
