2020 Presidential Election – Points and Counterpoints

Rand Paul: 2020 election fraud never fully reviewed by courts Senator says judges ‘have been hesitant to get involved’ By Bob Unruh
  • The report noted that even the Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge to arbitrary changes made by state officials in Pennsylvania for the election, a political move that drew Justice Clarence Thomas’s reaction.
  • “One wonders what the court waits for,” he charged. “We failed to settle this dispute before the election, and thus provide clear rules. Now we again fail to provide clear rules for future elections. The decision to leave election law hidden beneath a shroud of doubt is baffling. By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence. Our fellow citizens deserve better and expect more of us…”

Sen. Rand Paul clashes with ABC’s Stephanopoulos: ‘You’re forgetting who you are as a journalist!’  By Joseph A. Wulfsohn | Fox News

  • Stephanopoulos began the contentious interview by asking Paul if he accepts the “fact” that the “election was not stolen.” Paul responded by insisting that the “debate” over voter fraud should occur and acknowledged how evidence from various claims was never examined since legal cases were “thrown out” by the courts. 
  • While Paul listed off various irregularities that could be challenged or overturned by the Supreme Court, including secretaries of state unilaterally changing election laws by skipping the legislative process, Stephanopoulos had enough.

  • As part of her defense in the defamation lawsuit, Powell told the court that “no reasonable person would conclude” her claims “were truly statements of fact.”
    • … Powell is still not backing off the claims that she herself insists no reasonable person would believe. In fact, later in her filing, her team goes out of its way to note that Powell still believes the things she said about Dominion Voting Systems. 
  • The election was highly secure, with 95% of votes cast on paper ballots (which makes auditing and recounting easier) and more scrutiny of the final vote tally than had been given to any election in American history.

The Founders Warned Us About Abuses Like H.R. 1,  Rob Natelson

Feb 23, 2021. Why Do the Election’s Defenders Require My Agreement?  … By Michael Anton, American Greatness The purpose of voting today is to give a democratic veneer to an undemocratic regime—not to give the people a say in the direction of their government. 

  • Let me begin by repeating something I said to Sullivan: I do not actively disbelieve in the outcome of the 2020 election. I do not assert that the election was stolen. I also do not believe the election was totally fair, “belief” being an affirmative mental state. I say only that I don’t know; I haven’t been convinced either way. One side tried to convince me and failed (at least so far). The other side has made no such attempt but instead mostly shouts in my face that I must believe. The latter effort, in addition to being aggravating and insulting, has been less effective. 
    • Counting shutdowns in five states, in which one candidate was ahead, only to lose after the counting resumed;
    • “Found” tranches of ballots going overwhelmingly—sometimes exclusively—to one candidate, the eventual “winner”;
    • Sworn affidavits alleging the backdating of ballots;
    • Historically low rejection rates—as in, orders of magnitude lower—of mail-in ballots, suggesting that many obviously invalid ballots were accepted as genuine;
    • Mail-in and absentee ballots appearing without creases, raising the question of how they got into the envelopes required for their being mailed in;
    • Thousands upon thousands of ballots all marked for one presidential candidate without a single choice marked for any down-ballot candidate.
    • The absolute refusal to conduct signature audits—indeed, the discarding of many envelopes which alone make such audits possible—i.e., of the kind of recounts which are performed not merely to get the math right but to evaluate the validity of ballots;
    • Other statistical and historical anomalies too numerous to mention here.
  • None of the above other irregularities have been explained, nor will they ever be.
  • What we thus have is a voting system that is slapdash, inconsistent, porous, and easy to manipulate—i.e., cheat. Again, by design. The media, the intellectuals, the “experts,” the universities—every opinion-shaping sector of our society—both cheerlead and lie about all of this. 
  • The purpose of voting today is not to give the people a say in the direction of their government, nor to balance competing interests by alternating party control. It is rather to give a democratic veneer to an undemocratic regime. The phrase “Our Democracy™”—I lost count how many times Sullivan flung it at me—is a weaponized term meant to assert moral superiority and squelch dissent.
  • Sullivan repeatedly demanded that I explain how Our Democracy™ can survive as a democracy if something like half the country doesn’t believe in it anymore. The question was rhetorical. Sullivan knows the answer: it can’t.

Feb 24, 2021. Laurence Tribe: Justice Thomas is out of order on 2020 election, The Hill

Feb 24, 2021Where Do We Go to Get the Integrity of Our Vote Back? Benjamin Weingarten

  • The Supreme Court’s refusal to grapple with 2020 presidential election lawsuits concerning patently dubious policymaking by judges in Pennsylvania is a dereliction of duty of the highest order.
  • “The Pennsylvania Legislature established an unambiguous deadline for receiving mail-in ballots: 8 p.m. on election day. Dissatisfied, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court extended that deadline by three days. The court also ordered officials to count ballots received by the new deadline even if there was no evidence—such as a postmark—that the ballots were mailed by election day.”
  • “These cases provide us,” Justice Thomas asserted, “with an ideal opportunity to address just what authority nonlegislative officials have to set election rules, and to do so well before the next election cycle.
  • “The refusal to do so,” he concluded, “is inexplicable.”
  • “The decision to leave election law hidden beneath a shroud of doubt is baffling. By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence. Our fellow citizens deserve better and expect more of us.”
 
  • What the Supreme Court codified yesterday, and what it started with the Texas rejection, is that election laws and procedures cannot be challenged beyond a state court, at any time, regardless of how badly those states shred the United States Constitution, and regardless of the major consequences to the other 49 states as a result. They don’t ever say that per se, but the results of what those two rulings have done are just that. Period.
  • This is proactive, and it absolutely legalizes institutional voter fraud and neuters state legislatures in lieu of state courts. Lawyers gonna lawyer, I reckon.

  • Opposing Perspectives 
    • About a week ago I published some preliminary numbers regarding vote slipping, prepared by some very deep diving dolphin-speakers. They had only located, analyzed, And reconstructed about 18 of them at the time. They had found just short of 300,000 votes flipped. Now they have worked further through the data, and they have locked down what 85 case, for over 2 million votes. They are most of the way but not yet completely all the way through the data, so this may increase a little more.

  • The vision thing: Handy guide to the biggest earthquake in human affairs in 2,000 years   
  •  In only 21 out of 80 cases has evidence been considered.  Trump has now won 14 of those, something hardly anyone is aware of.  In one case, in Michigan, the court has already agreed there’s good evidence that votes were digitally altered in voting systems.
  • By contrast, 34 cases have been dismissed without consideration of the evidence, on non-evidentiary grounds.  And 25 are still in process, most in various stages of heel-dragging, their evidence unreviewed.
  • This is the value-added comment I would offer.  It is entirely possible for the resources of the U.S. government to have watched this happening live.  That comment does not mean we did watch it.  It means we could have.  This is what I’ve alluded to in previous articles, and nothing has changed from the original assessment.  Since that assessment was based on known capabilities, and not certainty about timeline or intentions, nothing needed to change, or in fact will ever need to.
  • Trump actually had everything he needed in place to do what the U.S. government has the means to do, through the front door, by invoking his E.O. 13848 of September 2018.
  • As for the other allegations about the 2020 vote, none of them is “crazy.”  Far from being crazy, they are all fully documented in conventional ways, from voting records to hundreds of sworn affidavits to original videos of highly questionable and irregular activities at polling and vote-counting locations.  What they are not is adequately investigated by authorities.

Here is a video of only 1 minute which shows hundreds of foreign entities (many in China) who, on November 3, 2020, were hitting voting machines across Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia.
  • How DJT Lost The White House, Chapter 3: Crashing The White House (December 18-22)

As you may know, I have been swimming around the outside of your administration for a couple months now, and I must tell you, I do not think you are being well-served by many people in the White House. I can bring in young staffers who will tell you that some of your senior leadership don’t want you to win. They want you to concede.”
    • I believe at that moment we all weighted the chances of our success high. As we walked home in the falling snow we confided in each other, You know, for me this is not really about Trump. But we cannot let a rigged election stand. If we do, it could mean civil war, and even a Chinese take-over of our country. All we need to do is follow this plan, expose what happened in those six counties by checking the ballots. If there is nothing amiss, then Trump gets in his helicopter and leaves, and there’s no civil war. But if we find chicanery, it will give an opportunity to blow this scheme up for the whole nation. Who knows how much fraud there is going to turn out to be in US elections? I think ‘a lot,’ what do you think?

    • Referring to him as “President* Biden” accomplishes two things: it recognizes that he did, in fact, become President through the Constitutionally-mandated process; it also recognizes that irregularities (such as have been described in this story) marred that achievement. So Biden is indeed President*, in the same way that Barry Bonds owns the home-run record with 762*, and Lance Armstrong won the Tour de France 6* times.
    • Two people of whom I can say, “These two people are fully and entirely about helping the USA, and are not in it one iota for themselves.” Those two people are Sidney Powell and Mike Flynn. They have started an excellent organization, Defending the Republic, and they mean business.
    • The people of our country are suffering because elites sold them out. The people can look at what has happened over the last 30 – 40 years, and know they have been sold out. They correctly understand that when they look at Trump they are not looking at an “elite” but one who wants to stand up (however coarsely) against the elites on their behalf. That is his source of appeal, and that is what causes so many to look the other way on his personal foibles.
    • The same side maintaining there was no significant election fraud has since November 4 fought tooth-and-nail against allowing any real scrutiny of the systems to take place.
    • Now it continues the fight against transparency, knowing that revelations that might come from a full audit would shape Americans’ beliefs about the need to reform our election systems.  … That’s odd, because one would think that if they actually believed their assertions of there being no fraud, they would welcome scrutiny to establish that election fraud had not dominated the election.
    • Sweden’s strategy turned out to be the best. The second wave they experienced was not larger than the first, Sweden avoided turning into a police state, and now Covid-19 deaths have tapered to 0 (all data and graphs from World Health Organization website):

      1. Demoralization of the country – Covid-19;
      2. Disorientation – Antifa & BLM;
      3. Crisis –election counting stopped in 6 cities in 6 swing states, then a surprise happened;
      4. Normalization – the media gaslighting anyone who sees anything odd about the election.
    • So why do things seem surreal? Perhaps because you are living through a psyop to take over our country, and reality as you know it is being engineered. That’s the weak hypothesis. … WHY DOES EVERYTHING SEEM SURREAL? THE STRONG HYPOTHESIS .. If the Weak Hypothesis is correct and we are living through a psyop, who is behind the psyop? China is behind the psyop.

They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system’s fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures.
    • Could this have anything to do, you wonder, with President Trump’s upcoming impeachment trial? … My suspicion that Time’s piece is both pre-emptive strike and damage limitation exercise. It anticipates the possibility that Trump will provide evidence in support of his claim that the election was “stolen.” … This evidence will be much harder to brush under the carpet in the Senate.

  • Trump’s lawyers reject accusations of inciting Capitol riot, call impeachment unconstitutional – The Washington Times – Tuesday, February 2, 2021 
    • The legal brief rejects Democrats’ accusation that Mr. Trump made false claims about widespread election fraud. … “Insufficient evidence exists upon which a reasonable jurist could conclude that the 45th President’s statements were accurate or not, and he therefore denies they were false,” the lawyers wrote. 
    • The Dem House managers won’t provide evidence that Trump’s statements were false — not only because they don’t have anything beyond declarations — but simply because nobody really knows whether the election results in the contested six states are valid or not, free from error or not, lathered with fraud or not.
    • Trump himself will have at least three hours – with or sans counsel — to puff-off feather dust claims that he incited a riot on January 6th, but more important, present all of the material that formed his opinion about the lack of election integrity — most notably the exhaustive presentations by Peter Navarro — covering ballot fraud, numerous ballot process irregularities, and violations or rewrites of state legislature-enacted election laws by officials without sanction from legislatures, obviously unconstitutional at both the state and federal levels.
  • By Andrea Widburg
  • What I’m finding and continuing to find, because we’re actually still doing research, and we’re looking forward to presenting it more aggressively without the constraints of the lawsuits we were entangled with initially, is that among those three states, the number of illegal ballots surpassed the margin of victory. Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona, without those three, Joe Biden isn’t president – and I think we can prove that fairly conclusively.
  •  … it’s perfectly reasonable and appropriate for Trump to include in his defense evidence that the election was stolen.
  • If Matthew Braynard can prove that, in at least three of the contested states, massive fraud in the form of fake paper ballots led to Biden’s so-called victory, Biden has no right to occupy the White House. And if he has no right to occupy the White House, every act – every Executive Order, every person appointed, every rule made – is null.  ….  I’m not saying this is a winning argument but it’s an argument.

Pulitzer says some counties had ballots with print that was out of alignment and there were variations in ballots where there shouldn’t have been. Most importantly, from the time a ballot is placed into the hands of a voter, to the time it is placed in boxes in a warehouse, the ballot changes many hands, opening the process to fraud.

      • The liberal media claim any problems were minor and couldn’t have affected the results. But they started making this claim just a few days after the election, well before any serious investigation was possible. Furthermore, the claim rests heavily on self-serving statements by the very election officials ultimately responsible for screw-ups. It also relies on dismissal of the challengers’ judicial cases, although nearly all were dismissed for procedural reasons, not because their allegations were wrong. And—as explained below—there’s just too much evidence to the contrary for the media assertions to be credible. There was one huge election irregularity no one is discussing, but which was undeniable: States throughout the country ignored both the Constitution’s Same Day Clause and federal law in carrying out the 2020 popular vote.

Brown County Matters – Challenges

The Admins of Brown County Matters were recently thanked for the time and effort required for managing the site.   I replied that it is has been interesting and fun — most of the time.

But, “fun” is not the right word – Challenging may be the better descriptor.  The “intent” for the group is to share information on county “matters that matter” in the public and non-profit sector that in some cases, support an action. An action could include a response to a road or school issue or closure, an upcoming vote by elected or appointed officials, fundraisers for a non-profit, help in looking for a lost pet, notification of criminal activity … etc.

Rules of the group continue to be refined, deleted, or added. These have helped provide some guidelines on the do’s and the please-don’ts.  Deleted posts are the “exception” where more than 80% of the deletes are attributed to less than 20% of the posters.

Administration

The New Posts typically deleted have been the ones that reflect a national (political) or cultural issue. Many if not most of these are allowed in response to a post that has a specific county context.  For example, Covid related mandates in the county or the lack of mask wear at a local store opens up some floodgates.  Another category of the most commonly deleted posts have involved implied threats and bullying (rare) and attacks on the messenger vs. the message.  The term “attack” has different interpretations for many people and most of the posts that are reported to the Admins are deleted.

Perspectives regarding topics vary based on many variables:  Age (generation – x,y.z, m), gender, education, knowledge of civics – national, state, county, experience, political beliefs, maturity, culture, and respective personal “hot buttons and biases.”

On culture – the seniority thing (who has lived in the country the longest) has come up a few times, e.g., the born-heres vs. the came-heres.  And even within these two groups, distinctions are made as to the length of time and connections. For anyone that can trace back their ancestry to the native Indian settlers in this area, they might prefer that we (the live-heres) all leave.

The county is not immune from the divisiveness and polarity on issues that are evident at the national level.  The recent example of the Senate hearings on the 2020 elections reinforced a clear divide between the two political factions. On one side, there is a belief that this has been the most secure election in history” and the other side is working to make the case that the election is The Greatest Electoral Heist in History.   

Political orientation does influence respective positions.  The Brown County League of Women Voters has endorsed the belief that this has been “the most secure election ever” and has also endorsed a position that America is a nation founded on racism. In the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections, President Trump received over 63% of the vote in the county.

Critical Thinking

On respective arguments and positions, there are suggested criteria to consider in making a good argument in defense of a position.  Information on this topic can be found under the concept of “critical thinking.”  The following link provides some examples of fallacies and rhetorical devices:

Another option in support of analysis and decision-making is the development and improvement of a “decision-making” process.

What may be “New” for many is an awareness of “context and process” for incorporating all points of view with the intent of producing an outcome where everyone can benefit, or at least, not be any worse off in the long-term.

On any controversial issue, some will be adamantly for and against a position, most are somewhere in between and probably the majority of individuals are on the sidelines, e.g., not aware, don’t know, may not care, may have an interest but will not post or reply to a post. This situation is often reflected in the more controversial posts on Matters.

Canceling and Blocking

What has recently emerged in our culture is the prevalence of identity politics and a “cancel culture” – where individuals and groups that don’t accept a respective position are personally and professionally attacked.  This has happened a few times to the Admins on Matters when we refused to allow a post or posts.

The “Blocking” feature on Facebook is an effective tool.  I have been blocked and I have blocked others.  The criteria for me is when individuals project their biases or insecurities onto me and/or I assess further discussions are not likely to be productive.

Local and National

We may have little influence over what is happening nationally, but we do have a little more control over what happens locally.  The Brown County Leader Network has developed and identified methods and tools that may help in supporting decisions that may lead to more needs being met and less harm on people of needs not met. The commitment required for this approach requires a little more time than the drive-by posts made on Facebook.

Power (Control) – Who makes the decisions for all?

Ultimately,  the core issue politically is often a matter of power.  In developing the design of the U.S. system of government, the founders understood human nature and history.  They appreciated that individuals seek power and power always corrupts.  They designed a system of government (a Republic) with checks and balances on power that  enables We the People to work together to achieve “a more perfect Union.” Their expectation was that most of the power would be wielded at the local level.

An opposite perspective to self-government is more centralization of power.  The supporting belief is that decisions by the few will result in the best outcomes. Under this perspective, the Constitution should be interpreted to fit the times as opposed to aligning with the original intent of the Founders.

Centralization of power through socialism, marxism, communism, fascism, et.al., never works out in the long run and leads to conflict and war.

The X Option.   There are generally four strategies that can be taken by various groups with respect to change and expected outcomes:

(1) A strategy where everyone benefits (win/win). This is the strategy supported by the Brown County Leader Network.

(2) A zero-sum approach — ” I win you lose” or (3) ” I lose you win.”  The zero-sum approach can result in a never-ending cycle where the losers are motivated to take the action needed to win and when they do win, the cycle is repeated when the losers mobilize in taking the action needed for them to “win.”

And some (adversaries), encourage and support a zero-sum approach that will result in a situation where we all lose – the 4th and worst approach.
