Trump Surrenders to the Deep State

By: Cliff Kincaid

With his presidency on the line, President Trump has folded like a cheap suit. And he doesn’t wear cheap suits. His decision to begin the “transition” to a Biden “presidency” means the Deep State has won. All of his appeals for money for his “Official Election Defense Fund” were part of what attorney Larry Klayman calls the “scandal industry.” Trump supporters should demand their money back.

In an interview on ASI TV, Klayman had predicted ultimate failure on the part of the Trump lawyers, arguing that the courts are as corrupt as the Deep State. Does Trump realize the fix is in and his days are numbered? Does the president himself fear an assassination attempt? Perhaps he’s just tired of fighting.

The president says he is only authorizing this move because the head of the GSA has received threats. The GSA makes money available for an incoming administration. An alternative would have been to allow GSA head, Emily Murphy, to resign and be replaced by someone else, with the fortitude to withstand the assault.  Trump says he will continue his legal fights and has not conceded the election.

But Trump’s GSA decision deflates and demoralizes Trump supporters across the country, and it now looks almost certain they will not turn out next January 5 to vote in the Georgia Senate run-off elections. Hence, the Democrats will win both seats and take the Senate, giving what Vic Biorseth calls the “Marxocrat Party” total control of government. The irony is that most Democrats don’t consider Marxism a dirty word.

After declaring victory several times, Trump has failed to explain directly to the American people what the heck is going on. Why, his supporters are asking, is Trump not going to the people in the same way President Eisenhower gave a national address on the military-industrial complex? Bay of Pigs veteran Frank De Varona was on my ASI TV show pleading with the president to go public with details about a CIA operation to destabilize and steal the election.

What probably happened behind the scenes is that the CIA went to Trump, arguing that his efforts were threatening to reveal a “State Secret” – that the Deep State manipulates elections at home just as they have been doing abroad for decades. They likely told Trump to back off, otherwise, he and his family would be pursued during a second term and would ultimately be ruined financially

Not only does this mean that Biden will assume the presidency, it means that the oligarchs running Big Tech, with their extensive ties to the CIA, have won. What a tragedy. I had just finished an interview with Joe Oltmann, the Colorado activist who discovered a key officer in Dominion Voting Systems was involved with the anarchist street fighting group Antifa and had boasted about rigging the election against Trump. He had just signed an affidavit in the case. The CEO of a tech company, he is able to demonstrate the fraud. What does he do now? He told me he is already in hiding and has hired security guards to protect him and his family.

With Trump authorizing GSA help to Biden, it’s a signal to the street communists, working in an alliance with the billionaire oligarchs, that Trump supporters are fair game. Expect major persecution.

Asked if he thought Dominion was involved with the CIA or some other intelligence agency out to get Trump, Oltmann told me he didn’t want to speculate. But we can speculate. Perhaps Sidney Powell will get to the bottom of all of this. But the results of her investigation may occur sometime in the next year when the findings will make a good book but have no impact on the presidential race.

Twitter took down Oltmann’s account once he began to expose the names of those behind the fraud. Big Tech declared Biden the winner, even while legal actions were underway. They are destroying our First Amendment rights. Next to go are our Second Amendment rights.

Another ominous sign was attorney Sidney Powell leaving the Trump legal team, after appearing with Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani at a national news conference. Pro-Trump people tried to “spin” the news in a flattering light. I was not convinced.

Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch never held out any hope that the “conservative” Supreme Court would ultimately declare Trump the winner. Trump’s legal efforts now seem confused and hopeless.

Klayman’s new book, It Takes a Revolution, outlines alternative strategies for the American people to take their country back.

Since we are witnessing a complete collapse of the American system, with Trump’s acquiescence, we have to consider how to cushion the impact of the disaster and safeguard our families. Happy Thanksgiving.

Special ASI TV Shows on Election Fraud

By: Cliff Kincaid | America’s Survival

Joe Oltmann Broke the Story of Dominion Voting and Antifa

Under heavy censorship from Big Tech, conservative activist Joe Oltmann provides this blockbuster interview about how a key officer with Dominion Voting Systems (operating in Georgia and other states) is linked to the violent anarchist group Antifa, and how the officer boasted about rigging the election against Trump. Now in seclusion because of threats, Oltmann has hired security guards because his revelations threaten to expose those behind the fraudulent election and the coup against Trump.

Brazilian Journalist Says Free World Depends on Trump’s Survival

Facing the same kind of threats and censorship against conservatives in the U.S., the popular Brazilian journalist Bernardo Kuster discusses how his home was raided by federal agents and his Twitter account suspended. He says Brazil is paying close attention to the United States, as President Bolsonaro has refused to recognize Biden’s “victory.” Kuster also discusses Biden’s threats of economic warfare against Brazil over its treatment of the Amazon rain forests and the need to form a united front against Red Chinese expansionism.

If The Courts Fail, Trump Must Nullify the Election

Conservative Catholic writer Vic Biorseth explains why he thinks Trump has the guts to stop the fraud committed by the “Marxocrat” party and save the Constitution. In this conversation with ASI TV’s Cliff Kincaid, he talks about his work at CatholicAmericanThinker.com and the “resistance” to the “organized crime families” running the Roman Catholic Church. In the end, he argues, Trump can stay in power, remaining true to his oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

America’s Turkey is the CIA

By: Cliff Kincaid

Disgusted with cable news, including Fox, I turned on “Pawn Stars,” where people sell items, sometimes real and sometimes fake. The owners make sure the item is real before they bid on it. They would never buy into the “results” of the 2020 presidential election.

“The whole 2020 election process involved a near-complete absence of any chain of custody over ballots, not just in the ‘swing’ states, but in most states, if not all,” notes conservative Catholic writer Vic Biorseth. “It was so rampant as to appear to have been by plan.”

Biorseth’s observation is shared by millions. The whole process stinks. Everybody knows it. Biden won’t even lift a finger to try to give the appearance of a fair and honest process, In his dilapidated mental state, he even bragged during the campaign about having a first-rate voter fraud organization.

I was watching “Pawn Stars” because I needed a break from the propaganda about “President-elect” Joe Biden. That’s a fraudulent term, like the kind of “Stolen Valor” that happens when people claim to be war veterans when they didn’t serve. Biden is impersonating a president, and should never become one.

As Biorseth argued on my ASI TV show, what may be required is the Trumpian nullification of an unconstitutional election, in order to prevent the usurper, Biden, from taking control. That might be the only way for Trump to fulfill his duty to protect the country from all enemies, foreign and domestic. Remember that Abraham Lincoln suspended habeas corpus to keep the nation together and triumph over the confederacy. That made him one of our great presidents.

Interestingly, as I watched “Pawn Stars” to pass some time, I noticed a short quiz, as they went to a commercial, about somebody in the news. Anderson Cooper was the answer to the question of who in the media had been an intern for the CIA. That was news to me.

These CIA-connected people, known as “presstitutes,” are all over the place. They serve the interests of the Deep State.

Digging deeper, I then found a story by Ben Norton about Cooper being the son of oligarch Gloria Vanderbilt, adding that, “A blue-blooded TV anchor coming from money and privilege is one thing, but a top news personality with a background at the Central Intelligence Agency is quite another.” Norton, an honest left-winger who refuses to toe the Democratic Party line, noted that Cooper worked for the CIA “while he was a student at Yale University — an intelligence agency-linked elite bastion where former CIA director George H. W. Bush also studied.”

Tucker Carlson, also known as Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson, was born into money, is reportedly worth $30 million, and makes $10 million a year. He poses as a man of the people but it turns out he tried to get a job in the CIA and failed. Or so they say.

Journalist Sean Davis told Tucker the CIA was involved in the anti-Trump Russia-gate plot. That was a big story. But Tucker now seems uninterested in a possible CIA role in election fraud.

This is strange since evidence of CIA involvement in many different aspects of American life is beyond dispute. Consider the firm In-Q-Tel, described as the CIA’s venture fund. Did you think the CIA only interfered in foreign countries? This group is described on its own web site as the following:

  • In-Q-Tel was founded in 1999 as the global technological evolution is underway… the internet is widely available, mobile applications are launching, and the digital revolution has arrived. The CIA and government agencies, once innovation leaders, recognized they were missing out on the cutting-edge, innovative, and impactful technologies coming out of Silicon Valley and beyond.

The CIA website advertises its involvement in starting the firm, known as IQT. The CIA said, “On 29 September 1999, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was treated to something different. In many of the nation’s leading newspapers and television news programs, a storyline had appeared that complimented the Agency for its creativity and openness.” In other words, the news about the CIA start-up was greeted with applause from the press. So much for speaking truth to power.

“IQT accelerates the intelligence and national security community’s access to cutting-edge technology,” it says, in vague high-tech language. Its locations are Washington, D.C., Menlo Park, Boston, London, and Sydney.

I wonder if these technologies might include tampering with elections and electronic voting systems, here and abroad. A reported $15 billion is spent every year on the CIA, including on cyber-warfare.

One of the board members is former CIA Director George J. Tenet, a Clinton appointee held over by the Bush administration. Tenet and then-FBI chief Robert Mueller (remember him?) failed to detect or prevent the 9/11 disaster. Tenet is also the official who told Bush that finding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq would be a slam dunk. For that, Bush gave Tenet a presidential Medal of Freedom.

Other board members include a former CIA general counsel and a military officer who advised Barack Hussein Obama.

With the CIA’s fingerprints all over this and other firms, the idea that the agency was involved in election fraud against Trump, whom they hated, has to be considered possible and plausible. But Tucker apparently doesn’t want to consider it.

I grew concerned when he opened a show with a story about the beauty of our national parks. That was feel-good nonsense when we deserved the hard truth about the country being stolen away from the people. Then he trashed lawyer Sidney Powell for refusing to go on his show to reveal evidence of vote fraud. On top of the ratings heap, he wanted more, more, and more. Ratings mean more money and ad revenue for his corporate globalist bosses. He hopes to expand his advertising beyond the firm My Pillow, which makes a great product.

Tucker’s Twitter feed is so uninteresting that it ought to be taken down on the grounds of boredom alone.

A former associate of neo-con Bill Kristol, Tucker turned on Kristol to appear in public as a traditional conservative, with a nod to Trump-style populism. It was an extreme makeover. I fell for the ploy, once thinking that Tucker was the new Trump.

Tucker warned in advance that Trump could lose the election, but now that the vote fraud schemes have been documented, he bails, saying he needs more proof and that Trump lawyers have to provide it only on his show.

With all these turkeys on the air, the White House on Monday sent out an email asking for input. “Help decide which turkey President Trump pardons tomorrow,” it said. “President Trump will continue the longstanding White House tradition of pardoning the National Thanksgiving Turkey at a ceremony in the Rose Garden,” we were told. “The turkey who receives his pardon will become America’s official 2020 National Thanksgiving Turkey.”

On this Thanksgiving, let us give thanks for our ability to detect frauds and hoaxes. I submit that America’s real turkey is the CIA. Chop its head off, Mr. President. Show us the innards.

Is it really over?

By: T.F. Stern | Self-Educated American

I read a comment issued by an old friend who happens to be a Biden supporter.  She was gloating, as if her intellectual superiority in assessing issues had prevailed, prematurely I might add.  “The election process is over; the final count had been done in Georgia.”  I have a great deal of respect for this individual and so rather than go for her throat, a rather crude way of saying we disagree; instead, I remained silent, temporarily, which is why I’m writing now.

There is room to wonder what she meant with her remark, it’s over.  In all likelihood a reference to the vote count in Georgia as reported by the major news media outlets, those honorable individuals who’ve presented their propaganda as is if it were factual information.  She believes that Georgia’s vote count assures Biden of the number of Electoral Votes needed to win.

Perhaps she was unaware of those individuals counting the votes in Georgia, the state where several batches of uncounted votes continue to surface, supposedly minor errors in the care and custody of presidential votes that had been cast on, …or even after November 3rd.  Never mind that the Senate seat, which has yet to be determined in Georgia, whose outcome will determine which party holds sway for the next several years.

I’d like to think she was selectively ignorant of yet another possibility, that our constitutional republican form of self-governance was over.  I say this because if we as Americans, regardless of which candidate we would prefer to win; if we allow the corruption which has tainted this voting process to stand then we are accepting corruption willingly and without regard for the consequences.

Many on the Biden side are asking for proof of any wrongdoing, any at all.  They have some kind of unrealistic idea of how to identify corruption, the intent to manipulate and control the outcome of this election.

I’m reminded of the scene from the movie, A Few Good Men, the courtroom scene where the now-famous line is uttered, “You want the truth?  You can’t handle the truth!”

Let’s work on the idea that there is a ‘preponderance of evidence’ which would indicate to a rational individual that something seriously wrong has, in all probability, occurred in the voting process.  We’ll save having to prove ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ for later. In other words, is it possible that the statistical mathematics pointing out voting irregularities just happen to match with algorithms built into a machine intended to count votes, that these 20,000 Dominion machines were not intended to alter the outcome of such a count?

(Image of Eric Coomer found on Facebook, quote verified)

Never mind that the irregularities occurred in several states around the same time of night after it became clear that Trump was not only in the lead, but was projected to win based on the vote count prior to the unexplained ‘shutdown’.

If your answer is a flat out, No; then you’re not being honest.  Why would anyone design a machine that could be accessed from the internet by way of hidden backdoor passwords, have the ability to discount certain votes while at the same time award a higher percentage to the opponent?  Worse, why would any honest person consider using these machines, their ability to alter an election’s outcome wasn’t exactly a secret?

The machines in question have been used to assist the outcome of elections in other countries.  The CIA and other ‘three-letter government organizations’ are on record as having used them to disrupt elections in other countries. To say this is new information is beyond believable.  Some states refused to use the machines in question because the results offered could not be verified, thereby being unreliable and corrupt. But this could never happen in America…

So why did 30 states, to include so-called battleground states authorize the use of Dominion machines that were capable of altering election results, changing the outcome in favor of whoever had been pre-ordained to win?

But you say, that hasn’t been proven in a court of law…  I respond with, “If you’re walking along and see a pile of mushy brown substance, you wipe it with your finger, hold it up to your nose and take a whiff, then stick out your tongue and taste it.  After having puked on the sidewalk you say to yourself, Glad I didn’t step in it.”  Are you that hard to convince that something is amiss?

Or…are you willing to accept corruption, move on because the outcome went the way you’d hoped it would, your candidate won?

If that’s how you feel, then you’re probably right; it’s really over.

Learn About the US Election Assistance Commission

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Primer: On September 12, 2018, President Trump signed an Executive Order imposing sanctions in the event of Foreign Interference in a United States election.

Gotta wonder based on the text of the Executive Order if John Ratcliffe at ODNI is working on the case as introduced by Sidney Powell regarding SmartMatic.

Anyway…

Many have said the United States needs election reform. The last time there was real reform was in 2002 with the launch of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. This commission operates in cadence with the Help America Vote Act. Did you know about this federal law and that it is under the authority of the Department of Justice? Nor did I until I found myself in a rabbit hole yesterday. There is a LOT here so it may get confusing but it will put much of what the press conference was about yesterday in context by Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell.

The Election Assistance Commission (EAC) supports state and local election officials in their efforts to ensure accessible, accurate. and secure elections. EAC develops guidance to meet the Help America Vote Act requirements, adopts voluntary voting system guidelines, and serves as a national clearinghouse of information on election administration. EAC also accredits testing laboratories and certifies voting systems, as well as audits the use of Help America Vote Act funds.

Note the above text from their website that reads ‘accredits testing laboratories and certifies voting systems.’ Did the EAC give approval for Dominion? YES, that is found here also on the website.

Further, at least 2 former members of the EAC went on later to join the Board of Directors for SmartMatic, the software in question hosted on Dominion machines.

Gracia Hillman served as a commissioner and chairman of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (2003-2010); and Paul DeGregorio is an elections expert who also served as commissioner and chairman of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (2003-2007). Further details from a 2018 Associated Press article includes:

Gracia Hillman served as a commissioner on the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) from 2003 to 2010 and as chairman. During her career, she also served as Vice President for External Affairs at Howard University, Senior Coordinator for International Women’s Issues at the U.S. Department of State, President and CEO of WorldSpace Foundation, and Executive Director of the League of Women Voters of the U.S., the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and the National Coalition on Black Voter Participation.

Ms. Hillman has provided leadership as an officer and director of numerous nonprofit boards of directors and government commissions. She has represented the United States government before the United Nations, the Organization of American States, and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.

Paul DeGregorio served as commissioner of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) from 2003 to 2007, and during his tenure at the EAC served as chairman. At the EAC, Mr. DeGregorio oversaw federal election reform, such as the implementation of the Help America Vote Act and the establishment of the first federal certification of voting systems.

So, this HAVA law is funded and appears to operate with an estimated $500 million budget for 2020. That being the case, it is also then assigned an Inspector General to investigate compliance at the state and federal level. (I have not found any IG reports, however.)

State by state funding for 2020 is:

Okay, got it. Now exactly how are those funds allocated, spent and who approves this at the federal and state level? Help figure that out.

So, remember that Cares Act that was passed by Congress and signed into law with President Trump’s signature? Well, if the HAVA law was already there, why was there a supplemental annex to the Cares Act? Was it just due to the pandemic? Go here and click around to see what you can fully determine.

The HAVA Election Security Funds were appropriated in 2018 and 2020. The two HAVA Election Security Fund appropriations, authorized under Title I Section 101 of the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) of 2002, marks the first new appropriations for HAVA grants since FY2010. This funding provides states with additional resources to secure and improve election systems.

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018 included $380 million in grants made available to states to improve the administration of elections for federal office, including enhancing technology and making certain election security improvements.

Then the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2020 authorized an additional $425 million in new Help America Vote Act (HAVA) funds.

Guidance on Managing Funds

It should also be noted that SmartMatic has several U.S. patents and there have been several lawsuits regarding the use of the patent(s) where the system can or cannot be sold across the world. ES&S and Dominion have essentially the whole voting market in the United States. ProPublica, a left-leaning government accountability organization did a large summary in 2019 on voting irregularities across the US and it is an interesting read.

Why Joe Biden Cannot be President

By: Cliff Kincaid

Military whistleblower Lt. Col. (Ret.) Tony Shaffer tells me on America’s Survival TV that President Trump should never concede an election “victory” to Biden. There’s just too much evidence that the election was stolen, perhaps through electronic voting system shenanigans with the connivance of U.S. intelligence agencies.

On three important issues — illegal drugs that destroy the ability of young people to think, economic destruction caused by Covid-19 lockdowns, and the deliberate murder of the innocent unborn — the Biden agenda is clear. Millions could die.

Out of this will come what has been called the New World Order and is now openly referred to as the Great Reset. Only Trump and his backers stand in the way.

Consider the movement to legalize marijuana and other mind-altering drugs. Originated with money from the likes of Hugh Hefner and billionaire George Soros, it has grown to the point where CNBC’s financial guru, Jim Cramer, is promoting and exploiting the increasing addiction to drugs for profit. This is the Wall Street mentality — money at any cost.

“Cannabis Stocks in 20211,” proclaims one of Cramer’s email messages promoting the marijuana business. “With Joe Biden winning the election,” says Cramer, ignoring the evidence of election fraud, “marijuana legalization becomes more likely. The impact of this election on the cannabis industry is enormous. If you join Real Money now, investing experts will give you the companies you can buy and investing advice on cannabis stocks.” His newsletter is Real Money. In this case, he makes money at the expense of the lives of people, many of them young, addicted to the drug, becoming stoned, and in some cases resorting to violence against others or themselves.

Drug Deaths

Consider the case of Johnny Stack, a young man who committed suicide on November 20, 2019, as a result of cannabis psychosis. He began smoking pot at the age of 14 when it was legalized in Colorado and drug dealers operated in the open, even around and in schools. He then started to “dab” high potency pot, leading to psychotic episodes. His mother Laura describes how all of this culminated in her son jumping off a six-story building in an impulsive act of fear and desperation.

On the other hand, in hailing the election of “President-elect” Biden, Cramer notes that young people voted for Biden because of climate change, a debatable theory, and we can now transform our economy into one operated on the basis of “green energy.” It’s a dangerous fraud, just like the stolen elections.

If Johnny Stack had survived, perhaps he could enlist in one of Joe Biden’s proposed new foreign wars. Odds are that Biden will expand the U.S. military presence in the Middle East, especially in Syria, jeopardizing Trump’s peace deals between various Arab states and Israel. Biden’s recent “national security briefing” included, on his behalf, representatives of two major defense contractors.

In some areas, such as military technology, it makes sense to maintain or increase defense spending. The National Interest reports evidence that Russia and China are outpacing the U.S. in military technology. But more foreign wars on behalf of Muslims who hate us is lunacy.

An honest leftist by the name of Chloe Rafferty notes that Biden, who once wrote a Wall Street Journal article, “How I Learned to Love the New World Order,” has “backed US intervention in the Balkan war, supported the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, voted for the war on Iraq in 2003 and, as vice president, backed the US intervention in Libya.” Yet, look at how many “progressives” endorsed Biden.

Most conservatives backed the Afghanistan war, in response to 9/11, but continuing to fight this war 19 years later, after it has turned into a futile nation-building exercise, makes no sense. That’s why Trump is trying to get our troops home.

Sounding tough about the Russians and the Chinese, Biden actually favors a global accommodation with both of these adversaries. That means the integration of capitalism with communism, creating a one-world socialist state. In this scenario, China will be the new model for the world and will dominate the Great Reset, after devastating the world with its China virus.

Biden’s Backers

The brilliant researcher Trevor Loudon told me in an ASI TV interview and he documents in his book White House Reds that Biden owes his political career to the Council for a Livable world, a group started by alleged Soviet agent Leo Szilard. The Council was supported by money from Al Gore Sr., who in turn was funded by Soviet agent Armand Hammer.

If the truth be told, the evidence suggests that Biden is pro-Russian. He vows to pursue unverifiable “arms control” agreements with the Russians.

Biden, of course, is also linked through his son Hunter to the Chinese communists, a story suppressed by Big Tech as people were voting in the U.S. This kind of censorship should be enough to declare the election null and void. No way was it a fair and honest election. The fraudulent elections only make the case for Trump staying in office even more solid.

Meanwhile, as noted by Bill Donohue of the Catholic League, Biden is determined to promote more deaths from abortion.  “Among Biden’s top priorities,” Donohue says, “is to codify into law the Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade. In other words, Biden wants to lock in the right of a woman to abort her child at any moment of pregnancy, for any reason whatsoever, thus blunting any future court challenges.” What’s more, “Biden also wants to get rid of the Hyde Amendment, thus forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions.” This means the grand total of 63 million abortions in the U.S. will accelerate under Biden.

In this context, it is interesting to note that some churches last Sunday were ordered to pray for a “peaceful transition of power” in the United States when the results have not been certified and legal actions are still underway. In Washington, D.C. this reflected the influence of Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory, the seventh Archbishop of Washington who is a pawn of Pope Francis. Gregory hates Trump and denounced him during the campaign. Francis is hoping for a major role in Joe Biden’s “New World Order” and “Great Reset.” Putting his own spin on it, Francis issued an encyclical “Fratelli tutti,” translated as “All Brothers.” It is the Gospel of the one-worlders.

Meanwhile, Biden proposes more economic lockdowns in response to the China virus, a policy that results in more deaths from suicides and drug overdoses. A Biden presidency means a national policy of accelerating the arrest of churchgoers, as abortion clinics and pot shops keeping operating, killing human beings or altering peoples’ minds so they become numb to what is happening before them.

Oregon just voted to decriminalize all hard drugs, including heroin, LSD, and cocaine. Look for drug injection sites to start popping up all around the country under a Biden presidency. This is the CIA MK-Ultra mind-control project made into official U.S. Government policy.

In Canada, a revolt is underway, as people reject masks, unreliable virus tests, and unproven and risky vaccines. We ought to take a look at what’s happening in our neighbor to the north, as Action4Canada activist Tanya Gaw tells me that people are waking up. She has hired a first-rate lawyer to overturn the restrictions on human rights countenanced by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who just recently admitted what Biden has not – that all of this hysteria is designed to usher in a “Great Reset” into global socialism.

Gaw says she knows of no one who has died of Covid-19 but is aware of several suicides and many overdose deaths linked to the lockdowns and social isolation.

A Speech to the Nation

To avoid this fate for America, Trump must remain in power. And there’s a way to do this because, as Trump maintains, with evidence, that the election was stolen from him, and that his campaign and supporters were illegally and unconstitutionally silenced by Big Tech.

The Trump Campaign news conference on Thursday on election fraud, featuring Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, was a good start. Powell hinted at a role in the fraud played by U.S. intelligence agencies.

Some are saying that the president has to eventually do what President Dwight Eisenhower did when he explained to the American people what’s happening behind the scenes with the military-industrial complex. These Trump supporters say that Trump must explain in detail the Deep State conspiracy to destroy his presidency and steal the elections. They say he must immediately declassify all evidence of malfeasance.

We are in what may seem like uncharted territory. But in another episode of my television show, geopolitical analyst Jeff Nyquist considered the possibility of two different presidents, with Trump remaining in the White House and Biden taking the “oath of office” somewhere else, perhaps Sacramento, California. All of this could lead, as incredible as it sounds, to the blue states on the West Coast becoming a base of support for “President Biden.” Most of the rest of the country would stand with Trump.

His recent column, “Two Presidents, Two Narratives,” looks back at the time when we in effect had two presidents. Jefferson Davis was inaugurated in the south and Abraham Lincoln followed suit in the north. Lincoln didn’t think the southern states would ever leave the union. Of course, that led to a bloody civil war, costing 500,000 lives.

Trump has to recognize that staying in power is the only peaceful way to avoid having Biden impose his agenda of death and destruction on the nation as a whole.

Today, Nyquist writes, the United States “is now divided into two camps, governed by diametrically opposing principles. The differences are now so striking, so profound, that it is inconceivable they will long tolerate one another. The violence of last summer is but a foretaste of what we should expect.”

We can expect such violence if Biden doesn’t manage to seize power through fraudulent elections. But fear of the aftermath if Trump stays in the White House is no reason for Trump to vacate the presidency. In the face of the threat from Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other communist groups, Trump has every right to stay in power and keep the country together, in the name of national sovereignty. He is wise to purge his administration of traitors and disloyal bureaucrats.

Abolishing Thanksgiving and Christmas

At the same time, as we get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, Biden is telling people that “if in fact, we’re going to have Thanksgiving with anyone,” it should be limited to five or 10 people, who should be socially distanced and wearing masks.  That’s for us commoners. He’ll probably have a mask-free dinner, just like the other hypocritical liberal politicians who preach one thing and practice another.

This advice will only further depress people, already suffering during the China virus lockdowns. The holidays, rather than being a happy time, are traditionally a depressing period for people cut off from their loved ones. In fact, a new book, Surviving the Holidays While Grieving, examines this topic.

With good reason, Senate Republicans refused to endorse House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s so-called Covoid-19 “relief” bill that mainly compensated bankrupt blue states and the marijuana industry. (It had 68 references to the marijuana industry). Pelosi didn’t want to compromise. As a result, we can expect more depression, suicides, and deaths from those being isolated.

Jobs are now being lost and reports indicate that 23 million Americans didn’t have enough to eat last week. Trump has to use every executive measure he has to defeat the lockdowns being imposed by governors like Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan and keep the country open.

In this national emergency and constitutional crisis, we need a president who will resist further destruction of the economy and our lives. National survival is at stake.

Dominion/SmartMatic, It Is A Mess, Here Are Some Top Details

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Trying to sort out the voting systems, hardware and software is crazy. Here is some help for you so that you can work out your own answers to questions you may have. There is much, much more for sure… this summary is merely a tip sheet for the reader.

Primer: The Texas Secretary of State letter describing the refusal of the Dominion voting system.

The nation’s three largest voting machine manufacturing vendors — Election Systems & Software (ES&S), Dominion Voting Systems, and Hart InterCivic — have all publicly acknowledged that they place modems in some of their vote tabulators and scanners.

While the vendors claim that their “firewalls” protect computers from outside interference, many of the nation’s leading technical experts say this claim is bogus.

“Once a hacker starts talking to a voting machine through the modem,” says Princeton University Computer Science professor Andrew Appel, “they can hack the software and make it cheat in future elections.” It’s as straightforward as that.

So, what can we do?

“We should be unplugging all of these machines from the internet,” says Kevin Skoglund, the computer scientist who led the 10-expert investigatory team. This means keeping elections technologies disconnected all the time, including on election night.

“We cannot make our computers perfectly secure,” says Andrew Appel. “What we should do is remove all of the unnecessary, hackable pathways, such as modems. We should not connect our voting machines directly to the computer networks. That is just inviting trouble.” More here.

We begin with more details by Sidney Powell (General Flynn’s lawyer and part of the Trump legal team).

Then we have this summary from American Oversight, which is a very left-leaning group of lawyers but they too have concerns regarding Georgia’s overhaul of the state voting systems.

Last updated: November 16, 2020

In July 2019, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced that the state had awarded a $107 million contract to manufacturer Dominion Voting Systems to replace existing voting machines with a new “verified paper ballot system.” As reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, both Dominion and the state’s former elections company, Election Systems & Software, had connections with Gov. Brian Kemp’s administration. Dominion lobbyist Jared Thomas had been a longtime political and campaign aide to Kemp, who previously served as secretary of state, and another lobbyist, Barry Herron, had worked for Diebold Election Systems, which had originally sold Georgia its electronic voting machines.

Georgia voters had complained about malfunctioning voting machines after the November 2018 midterm elections, even filing a lawsuit aimed at overhauling the state’s election system, including the electronic machines. But critics worry that the new electronic ballot-printing devices from Dominion won’t be much better, contending that hand-marked paper ballots remain the most secure voting method. In fact, the new devices were given a test run in six Georgia counties during the November 2019 election and ran into a number of issues. And records we’ve already obtained showed that voter check-in devices used “1234” as their default password — an “exceptionally weak security measure.” (State officials have said the passwords have been changed.)

Elsewhere in the state, voters reported long lines and ballot issues, and concerns remain about the hidden costs of the new voting system, the state’s planned purge of 300,000 names from its voter rolls, and security weaknesses in voting equipment. With the 2020 elections looming and the security of U.S. voting systems less than certain, American Oversight is investigating state officials’ communications with Dominion Voting Systems and its subcontractor KnowInk and is requesting records that could shed light on how the state is working to ensure secure and accurate elections.

Glitch-Prone Dominion Voting Software Used in Georgia ...

Dominion Voting Systems used a statement, which obscured the company’s council membership, to dispute concerns over voting systems

After allegations emerged that called into question the integrity of voting machines produced by Dominion Voting Systems, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA)—part of the Department of Homeland Security—issued a statement on Nov. 12 disputing the allegations, saying “the November 3rd election was the most secure in American history.”

What the agency failed to disclose, however, is that Dominion Voting Systems is a member of CISA’s Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Council, one of two entities that authored the statement put out by CISA.

The agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether Dominion and Smartmatic had input or were otherwise involved in CISA’s Nov. 12 statement. In addition, Smartmatic, a separate voting machine company that has been the subject of additional concerns, is also a member.

The joint statement on the integrity of the Nov. 3 election was issued by the Executive Committee of the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council (GCC), an Executive Committee representing a coalition of certain state & local government officials and government agencies, and the Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Council (SCC), a coalition primarily composed of voting system manufacturers that also includes Democracy Works, an organization which promotes the use of technology to increase voter participation.

The statement claims, “There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”

“While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should too,” says the statement.

Some of the allegations surrounding the integrity of the presidential election, included by President Donald Trump’s legal team, have been focused on the voting systems provided by Dominion, and to a lesser extent, Smartmatic. Both Dominion and Smartmatic have dismissed concerns over their systems.

Both companies are listed as members of CISA’s Sector Coordinating Council and appear to be actively involved as they are named as “Organizing Members” of the SCC. Among the key objectives of the SCC is to “serve as the primary liaison between the election subsector and federal, state, and local agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), concerning private election subsector security and emergency preparedness issues.”

The Charter states the primary mission of the Council is to “advance the physical security, cybersecurity, and emergency preparedness of the nation’s election infrastructure, in accordance with existing U.S. law. This mission will be accomplished through the voluntary actions of the infrastructure owners and operators represented in the Council.”

CISA’s Reliance on Commercial Vendors

CISA says that it “works to ensure the physical security and cybersecurity of the systems and assets that support the Nation’s elections,” including voter registration databases, IT infrastructure and systems to manage elections (including counting, auditing, and validating election results), voting systems, storage facilities for voting system infrastructure, and polling places including early voting locations.

In effect, CISA appears to act as something of an interface between commercial vendors and state & local governments.

“CISA is committed to working collaboratively with those on the front lines of elections—state and local governments, election officials, federal partners, and vendors—to manage risks to the Nation’s election infrastructure,” the agency states on its website.

As CISA notes, they do not have direct oversight or responsibility for the administration of our nation’s elections as that responsibility lies with state and local governments.

“Ultimate responsibility for administering the Nation’s elections rests with state and local governments, CISA offers a variety of free services to help states ensure both the physical security and cybersecurity of their elections infrastructure,” the agency writes on its website.

Dominion Using CISA to Deny Allegations

On Nov. 12, this publication published an article detailing a number of concerns raised about the integrity of Dominion Voting Systems in a sworn Aug. 24 declaration from Harri Hursti, a poll watcher and acknowledged expert on electronic voting security.

Hursti’s observations were made during the June 9 statewide primary election in Georgia and the runoff elections on Aug. 11, 2020, and centered primarily, although not exclusively, around the Dominion systems and equipment.

Hursti summarized his findings as follows:

  1. “The scanner and tabulation software settings being employed to determine which votes to count on hand-marked paper ballots are likely causing clearly intentioned votes not to be counted”
  2. “The voting system is being operated in Fulton County in a manner that escalates the security risk to an extreme level.”
  3. “Voters are not reviewing their BMD [Ballot Marking Devices] printed ballots, which causes BMD generated results to be un-auditable due to the untrustworthy audit trail.”

As part of the article, we reached out to Dominion Voting Systems for comment on Nov. 11 about the allegations contained in Hursti’s sworn statement, to which the company did not respond. Our article was published on the morning of Nov. 12. That afternoon CISA published its statement denying any problems with the voting systems.

The next day, Nov. 13, Dominion sent us an email titled “SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT: FACTS & RUMORS,” which cited the joint statement published by the GCC and SCC, of which Dominion is an organizing member.

Nowhere in its email did Dominion disclose that it had any affiliation with CISA, or was an active member of the SCC, one of the issuing councils. The email itself referenced the statement in third-party fashion:

“According to a Joint Statement by the federal government agency that oversees U.S. election security, the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity, & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA): ‘There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.’ The government & private sector councils that support this mission called the 2020 election ‘the most secure in American history.’”

CISA did not respond to a request for comment by The Epoch Times about whether it has investigated the claims made in the Georgia lawsuit about Dominion.

While it remains unclear whether CISA and the GCC/SCC have evaluated concerns raised in the Georgia lawsuit, their public statements categorically deny any problems with the systems.

However, in an Oct. 11 order just weeks prior to the presidential elections, U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg agreed with the concerns associated with the new Dominion voting system, writing that the case presented “serious system security vulnerability and operational issues that may place Plaintiffs and other voters at risk of deprivation of their fundamental right to cast an effective vote that is accurately counted.”

Despite the court’s misgivings, Totenberg ruled against replacing the Dominion system right before the presidential election, noting that “Implementation of such a sudden systemic change under these circumstances cannot but cause voter confusion and some real measure of electoral disruption.”

Given the recent timing of Judge Totenberg’s order, it does not appear that any of these issues were addressed by Dominion, CISC, or any of its affiliated organizations or Councils, despite their later statements claiming there were no such issues.

Your Mother is on the Roof

By: T.F. Stern | Self-Educated American

(Image of Biden’s Miraculous Vote Count courtesy of theredelephants.com)

My father had a library of stories and jokes that he’d share, usually when we were a captive audience while on a long drive.  What has this got to do with anything… I’ll get to that after sharing one of dad’s stories.

While getting ready to go on vacation Fred stopped by and asked if my dad would feed his cat and look in on his mother from time to time.  He left a key to the house along with a phone number to call should he need to get in touch.

Two days later dad found the cat had been run over while crossing the street.  He called Fred and told him, “Your cat’s dead, got run over by a car”.  Fred could hardly contain his emotions; but at the same time explained to dad that he might have softened the news a bit instead of blurting out, “Your cat’s dead”.

Fred suggested that it might have helped if, perhaps, on the first phone call dad might have said something like, “Your cat’s on the roof and I’m having trouble getting it down.  Then on the next call, you could say that the cat fell and you took it to the veterinarian.  That way I’d have been more prepared for the bad news about the cat dying.”

Dad listened carefully, aware that often times he didn’t consider the feelings of others. He apologized and told Fred to enjoy the rest of his vacation.  Fred asked how his mother was taking the loss of the cat.  Dad’s response, “Your mother’s on the roof and I’m having trouble getting her down.”

So what has this odd story got to do with current events?

If you’re only paying attention to how the results of the presidential election are being reported by major news media outlets, Twitter and Facebook then you’re in for one heck of a surprise.

These folks have already awarded the Oval Office to Biden/Harris even though not one state has officially certified the vote count.  In the meantime, they are ignoring what may be the biggest news story of the century, that being the use of computerized voting machines to steal an election.  They are not only ignoring the evidence of fraud, they are stifling anyone who says otherwise, censoring and containing the spread of facts.

Biden/Harris voters are thinking all is well, that their side has won.  The news media is telling them, “The cat is just fine, enjoy the trip”; not even a mention that, “the cat is on the roof and we’re just waiting for it to come down”…so to speak.

“There isn’t any evidence of voter fraud.  Trumpsters with their whacked-out conspiracy theories are only clinging on to hope.  The news media certainly would have reported something, that is if there had really been corrupted voting machines.”

But the news media has ignored the truth; swept it under the rug believing the courts would side with the news media’s having already “called the election for Biden”.

There’s little to nothing being reported about corruption which has been identified and graphed, mathematically and statistically impossible results have been referred to as ‘glitches’, baseless claims, rather than the result of intentional programming intended to steal an election.

There is irrefutable evidence that millions of votes for Trump were flipped and magically given to Biden, and this happened simultaneously in several machines at the same moment in battleground states giving Biden a presumptive lead and the presidency; but as with Jedi mind control, “Nothing to see here, move along”.

The impossible has occurred and yet the news media refuses to enlighten the public.

This will be painful to watch as it reaches the highest court.  Trump will be declared the winner, as he should; but what about the public that thought and actually believed the lies which the news media promoted?  They’re going to be told Trump stole the election by having a stacked Supreme Court because that’s the story the media has been repeating over and over.

Can you see where this will further divide the nation?  The propaganda outlets, having long ago given up reporting the news, continue telling the public Biden/Harris have won.

Dark days are ahead as the media sews discontent and chaos, all the while claiming we should all come together and Unite under Biden/Harris.  I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Biden/Harris are on the roof at this very moment.
