The Hustle and its Cover: Burgeoning Evidence of Massive Fraud in the 2020 Election

There is video of what appears to be a small team of polls workers in Fulton County, Georgia retrieving ballots in suitcases hidden beneath a covered table after clearing out Republican observers and other poll workers. The suitcases had been placed there the morning of the election. The video corroborates eyewitness testimony. Is this the proverbial smoking gun? The team (two yellow shirts, two purple shirts, along with a red shirted man) cleared out the observers and other workers under the pretense of a burst sewer pipe at the state’s largest voting precinct, State Farm Arena. The burst pipe story was widely reported by the legacy media.

The legacy media reported that the burst sewage pipe delayed election officials in counting thousands of mail-in absentee ballots on Election Day. However, as you can see in the video (which they are censoring and flagging on social media), there is no evidence of a burst pipe. The video appears to show instead poll workers waiting until everybody leaves and then moving into action, retrieving ballots from a hidden location where they had been kept since that morning, and frantically processing them. They’re running multiple machines, each one capable of processing several thousand ballots an hour. Estimates of the number of ballots processed during this time is at least several thousand.

Legacy media reporting on this incident functions to provide cover for fraud, with social media dismissing the story as pre-debunked and those in charge tidying up the mess (for example Gabriel Sterling, Georgia Elections Manager, an appointee of Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger). Poll workers and the legacy media were apparently unaware or did not consider that State Farm Arena is fully equipped with surveillance cameras and the private firm in charge of security simply handed over the recording to attorney Jacki Pick, who in turn presented the evidence to the Judiciary Subcommittee Hearing on Election. The video is consistent with what is described by witnesses in other states. Citizens are now doing the work of identifying the poll workers. One of them has been identified already (see also a potential collaborator). Presentations before the State Senate detailed other evidence of fraud. It is extensive.

The fact that the media is not covering this story, which is now several hours old, illustrates the extent to which the media is in on the hustle. This is the sort of scandal that generates big advertising dollars for legacy media. Crickets.

This episode is hardly the only illustration of media complicity in fraud. The legacy media is either ignoring or falsely claiming to have debunked a mountain of evidence indicating it. For example, there are hundreds of affidavits from witnesses testifying to fraudulent and suspicious activities. A sworn affidavit is evidence. So when the media tells readers and viewers that there is no evidence of fraud, they’re lying or don’t understand what evidence is (which is not possible). These hundreds of witnesses have sworn to what they saw under penalty of perjury. They understand the consequence of lying. Unlike the media, they will be held to account for their claims. Across multiple counties in multiple states, observers and workers testifying to seeing similar things. We cannot ignore this.

But that is not all. There is a string of statistical improbabilities that, by themselves, are practical impossibilities. When, taken together, the fact pattern indicates the work of a shared algorithm that systematically switches votes from one candidate to another. A hand recount compared to a machine with multiple observations in a county in Georgia found the machine switched the same number of votes from Trump to Biden. According to John Fredericks, appear on today’s program War Room: Pandemic, there were 37 votes that flipped in Ware County Georgia. Extrapolating the percentage flip to the entire state, that adds up to more than 14,000 votes. Biden “won” Georgia by only 10,000.

As we heard during the hearing before several of Arizona’s election officials, a state with another narrow-thin margin, the design of the software suggests that one way vote swapping is accomplished is by calculating fractional votes rather than tabulating integer votes, a trick that allows for the weighting of votes in favor of one candidate or another. For example, every Trump vote may be worth 0.7, while Biden votes are weighted 1.3, or, as appears to be the cases in some counties, the 0.3 is shifted to the Libertarian candidate. One indication of this is the appearance of decimals in the final vote tallies. This shouldn’t happen in an integer-based system. Dominion and state officials are aggressively moving to wipe the machines, and other state officials are reluctant to impound and subject the machines to forensic examination. This is highly suspicious behavior. If there is nothing to worry about, it only strengthens Biden’s claim to the Presidency to impound and examine the machines.

We see in multiple states a massive flip of votes of similar proportions occurring at similar times. In two states, the flip occurs within seconds. See the study Anomalies in Vote Counts and Their Effects on Election 2020. Note the time stamps. There is a near simultaneous uptick (see X axis) of similar magnitude (see Y axis). See also the study Michigan 2020 Voting Analysis Report.

There are many disturbing reports of missing and backdated mailing votes. Several whistleblowers have testified to the disappearance of 288,000 ballots and backdating of another 100,000 in Pennsylvania. They also reported that mail promoting President Trump was junked while mail for Joe Biden was delivered. The Washington Examiner reports that “a U.S. Postal Service contractor said his trailer full of 144,000-288,000 completed mail-in ballots, which he drove between New York and Pennsylvania, disappeared after he delivered it to a Lancaster, Pennsylvania, depot.” This information is gathered by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society. You can watch the Amistad press conference here.

See Sharyl Attkisson comprehensive report on November 29 reviewing the evidence for fraud: What you’ve been asking for: A (fairly) complete list of (some of) the most significant claims of 2020 election miscounts, errors or fraud. Attkisson is no crank. She is a five-time Emmy Award winner and Edward R. Murrow Award recipient. She was formerly an investigative correspondent in the Washington bureau for CBS News and an anchor for the CBS Evening News.

Does the fraud overturn the election? Probably. At least it should. But this is a coup, so probably not. But an equally important question is why the media is not merely uninterested in this, but actively dismissing it, even smearing those who are raise questions as “conspiracy theorists”? Why is the legacy media claiming that there is either no evidence of fraud or that cases have been debunked when they haven’t? Since when have they cared about evidence? Remember how the media was all in on the Russian hoax? Remember when Biden Appointee Neera Tanden spread the conspiracy that Russian hackers switched votes in favor of Hillary Clinton in 2016? Remember the Ukraine affair? Remember how the media—they still do—misrepresent the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine while pushing remdesivir? This is not a new story. Remember how the media misled the public about WMD during Bush’s drive to invade Iraq? Remember how they covered up Bush’s incompetence in 9/11? They still are by claiming that it was Gore’s challenge of the Florida vote in 2000 that left the United States vulnerable to terrorist attacks. (For the record, Gore did get more votes than Bush in Florida.)

The reason why the media is doing this should be obvious. As I have demonstrated in several stories on this blog, the legacy media, joined by social media, is the propaganda arm of the corporatist oligopoly. As Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky tell us in Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media, “The mass media serve as a system for communicating messages and symbols to the general populace. It is their function to amuse, entertain, and inform, and to inculcate individuals with the values, beliefs, and codes of behavior that will integrate them into the institutional structures of the larger society. In a world of concentrated wealth and major conflicts of class interest, to fulfill this role requires systematic propaganda.”

Here’s another smoking gun:

How does this work? Let’s turn to Herman and Chomsky again: “Structural factors are those such as ownership and control, dependence on other major funding sources (notably, advertisers), and mutual interests and relationships between the media and those who make the news and have the power to define it and explain what it means. The propaganda model also incorporates other closely related factors such as the ability to complain about the media’s treatment of news (that is, produce ‘flak’), to provide ‘experts’ to confirm the official slant on the news, and to fix the basic principles and ideologies that are taken for granted by media personnel and the elite, but are often resisted by the general population. In our view, the same underlying power sources that own the media and fund them as advertisers, that serve as primary definers of the news, and that produce flak and proper-thinking experts, also play a key role in fixing basic principles and the dominant ideologies. We believe that what journalists do, what they see as newsworthy, and what they take for granted as premises of their work are frequently well explained by the incentives, pressures, and constraints incorporated into such a structural analysis.”

I will soon drop a blog entry detailing the structure of power for which the establishment media toil. In the meantime, here are sources to arm you against skeptics: The National Pulse and Revolver News. Until then, I will leave you with an observation. Political scientist Michael Parenti once said something like this: While the media doesn’t necessarily tell you what to think, they do tell you what to think about. In this spirit, you might want to think about why you are not thinking about what happened with Antifa violence and Black Lives Matter riots after the legacy media proclaimed Biden President-elect. Mission accomplished? #colorrevolution
