2020 election irregularities: Why President Trump is contesting supposed results

President Trump is contesting the vote-counting and declared election results of several states. He demands recounting of votes and his lawyers have instigated lawsuits.

Donate to the President’s legal defense fund here!

Here are the reasons for us to be skeptical about the declared election results, including empirical evidence of voting irregularities:

(1) Mail-in ballots are banned in most developed countries, except the United States, due to demonstrated fraud:

John R. Lott of the Crime Prevention Research Center writes:

Most developed countries ban absentee ballots unless the citizen is living abroad or require Photo-IDs to obtain those ballots. Even higher percentages of European Union or other European countries ban absentee for in country voters. In addition, some countries that allow voting by mail for citizens living in the country don’t allow it for everyone. For example, Japan and Poland have limited mail-in voting to those who have special certificates verifying that they are disabled….

France banned absentee voting in 1975 because of massive fraud in Corsica, where postal ballots were stolen or bought and voters cast multiple votes. Mail-in ballots were used to cast the votes of dead people. [For examples of mail-in ballot fraud in other countries, go to SSRN to download Lott’s report.]

(2) No blue-wave in House and Senate races, but we are supposed to believe there was a blue-wave only in Trump-Biden race:

Pre-election polls had predicted a massive increase in the Democrats’ majority in the House, and the GOP losing their majority in the Senate, but what actually happened:

  • In House elections, the GOP retained every seat, while the Democrats appear to have lost at least 8 seats, though still retaining their majority hold. (CBS News)
  • In the Senate, Democrats flipped one seat in Colorado, but failed to oust Republican targets in Iowa, Montana, Maine, and Texas. Democrats’ chances of taking back the US Senate, in Republican hands since 2015, now look slim. (Business Insider)

(3) Honest people do not fear or resist transparency, but Republican poll-watchers were prevented from watching the vote-counting in their respective locales, including:

  • Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Arizona). He was denied entry into the Maricopa County Elections Center as the ballots were counted.
  • A Republican lawyer and another poll-watcher in Philadelpia, Pennsylvania. (@willchamberlain)
  • Poll-watchers in Georgia’s Fulton County were told to leave because the vote-counting were “closing up” for the night, but the county actually “continued to count ballots in secret.” (Breitbart)
  • In Detroit, Michigan, windows in absentee ballot counting center were covered up to prevent people from observing. (Breitbart)

(4) On election night (Tuesday), just when the vote counts showed President Trump leading and winning, vote counting was abruptly halted in critical battleground states. Then, when the vote counting resumed the next morning (Wednesday) and after, suddenly Joe Biden was receiving more votes than Trump.

Particularly damning is the fact that elections officials in Michigan and Wisconsin — which have declared Biden the winner — refused to explain Biden’s sudden and dramatic vote tally increase Wednesday morning:

  • Thomas Catenacci of The Tennessee Star reports that in a press conference, Michigan Sec. of State Jocelyn Benson said she was unfamiliar with the specifics of the vote count; her office also would not comment on the specifics of the tally in question.
  • Michigan Department of State spokesperson Aneta Kiersnowski told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a statement: “We cannot speculate as to why the results lean one way or another.”

(5) Ballot dump: Magic ballots suddenly are discovered –

As an example, on Wednesday, in Georgia, 61,367 absentee ballots suddenly materialized. Georgia’s Secretary of State’s Office said there were actually 50,000-60,000 uncounted ballots remaining as of 8:30 a.m., Wednesday, “more than initially thought early this morning.” (WSB-TV)

(6) Mail-in ballots irregularities:

  • A U.S. Postal Service employee told Project Veritas that they are ordered by their superiors to back-date late mail-in ballots as having been received on November 3, so the ballots are accepted as valid. (See DCG’s post)
  • In Georgia, the Democrat Party sent people to go door-to-door helping voters “to fix their mail-in ballots so they count.” (Georgia Democrats) But the Democrat operatives were told to “minimize” helping Republicans to fix their mail-in ballots. (Breitbart)

(7) Non-residents and dead people voted:

The Trump campaign is filing a federal lawsuit in Las Vegas today, to stop the counting of “illegal votes” in Nevada. The campaign claims to have evidence that “tens of thousands” people who are deceased and nonresidents have cast ballots in the 2020 election. (Fox5)

It is not as if dead voters haven’t voted before. See “The Coming Democrat Vote Fraud: dead voters in Ohio; non-citizen voters in Texas; Pelosi tells Dems to be unscrupulous”.

Oh say does that star-spangled banner yet wave…

…for the land of the free and the home of the brave?

I view this as the 2020 re-enactment of the Battle of Fort McHenry

Instead of the Brittish Empire, we have the tech giants, Main Stream Media and Marxist Academia parking their weapons out in front of the fort. As then, what happens next is based on the courage and determination of the fort’s defenders.

Lord give us the courage to stand our ground.

BOOM!!! Theft, FEC hacked or the Republican party has sold out President Trump, his supporters and America. Billions of dollars transferred to DNC PAC and the “Joe Biden for President” committee from Republican NRCC, NRSC, Congressional Leadership Fund and other conservative committees, PACs and organizations

 FUNDRAISING PAC Filings at the Federal Election Commission show Billions of dollars being transferred out of Republican party committees and PACS, directly to the DNC PAC and the “Biden for President” committee.

 

Sources up front

For those that just read the headlines and the first paragraph, here is the source where you can verify this for yourself. It’s at the Federal Election Commissions website. Follow instructions in detail.

  • Click the link provided. It will take you to a PAC named “Biden Action Fund
  • In the middle of the page it will say “Disbursements”. Don’t do a search or anything else. (The link should take you to the page with “RAW” already highlighted. If that’s the case, just click “Export” located
    in the upper left hand corner ).
  • Click “RAW” if not highlighted.
  • In the upper right hand corner click “Export”.
  • A box at the bottom will pop up that says “Download”. Download the file. (It’s a csv. File).

There is no other way to see this information. You have to download the file. It has to be the “Raw” version.

The file is fairly large for a csv. It’s 1.2 to 2.3 gigs. To view the file, I used Apache Open Office. If you have better, use it. File is too large for Open Office. It doesn’t load the last few rows So I ended up viewing it in Firefox.

For the last two days I’ve downloaded the files on multiple computers and on my phone just to make sure the file was coming from the FEC. Same information each time.

LINKS

Link 1. Disbursements click here or    https://www.fec.gov/data/disbursements/?data_type=efiling&committee_id=C00746651

I’’ve included a second link.

You are going to want to see the Receipts(Sources of funding).

Less than .09521% of funding for the Biden Action fund comes from donations less than $200. *Kamala Harris’s “For the People” committee gets 45% of its funding from donations over $200.

 This download will show you that Biden was lying at the debates about not being funded by Wall Street. There are multiple campaign finance violations to be found. Be sure you get the “RAW” version of this also.

A “ZZ” will be where the state of residence should be for all donors that have non USA  address.(foreugn donors?)

Link2. Receipts click here or

https://www.fec.gov/data/receipts/?data_type=efiling&committee_id=C00746651

The headline. The links. What’s it all about?

In the Disbursements download you will find multiple filings of cash being transferred from conservative Campaigns/Pacs. The amount of cash being transferred for each transaction can be as low as $100,000 to $5,000,000,000 and up..

This is either the biggest theft/ hack in American history. The biggest glitch in the FEC database in American history or the Republican party backstabbing the President, all Trump Supporter, most conservatives , and just about everyone living in the USA. What little integrity that remained in the political parties in the USA is gone. What little integrity that remained in the political parties in the USA is gone. This will prove that the Republicans are/have been working with democrats all along. A one party government.

I see Joe Biden’s “ Biden for President “ funds growing at a record breaking rate..

 

The following are screenshots of the actual data you will find in the download.

National Republican Senatorial Committee

National Republican Congressional Committee

 

Senate Conservatives Fund

 

 

Williamson County Republican

Indiana Republican State committee

 

On July 16 2020 the NRA endorsed Trump.

National Association for Gun Rights Inc

National Rifle Association of American Political Victory Fund

 

Pro Life Pacs

West Virginians For Life Inc.

Right to Life/ Oregon

 

These are just a few examples of what you will find in the download. If you have not downloaded the file by now, you really should while it is still available. The list keeps growing. Joe Biden has almost doubled in total funding over night.

*What I find strange is that this data should be in the receipts, not in the disbursements.

I’ve provided two examples below of what you will find in the second link I provided above. 

The first graphic only shows  title and amount donated.  Even though the information is public record, I felt it best  to not reveal their personal information. .
These are the people that want to control your lives. These are the people that profit off your misfortune. These are some of the people that end up with your hard earned dollars.

 

The second image below shows  foreign donors you will find in the receipts download. Your download will have all the information I left out.
*Its illegal to accept foreign money. It does not matter if it was intentional or not.



Closing Rant(Just my opinion)

This is exactly why people must vote for Trump. People on the right, Left center, up, down, the side, up front, behind, standing on the fence, sitting on the fence, loitering at the liquor store, everywhere, everyone must vote for Trump. This is not a simple right/ left problem. It’s the people against the establishment. Trump is all we have in DC. That’s if we make it to election day.

There is so much cheating going on that at this point every single ballot must be checked. If Trump loses he must not accept the loss until every ballot is checked, and not by democrats.

Daily we see where ballots are thrown away by postal employees. Ballots printed wrong. Multiple duplicate ballots sent out. Ballots with people’s pets name on them. Ballots with dead people’s names. Ballots with fake names. Everything from democrats extorting the electoral college to shutting down USPS buildings so they can postmark ballots ahead of time. Some will be held on to until first results come in after election day. Then they will know how many more they need to turn in and win the election. Some of them will be sent to mailing companies to be mixed in with regular mail, then mailed out.

If they want to mess up the election enough to where it forces a vote in the House of Representatives That’s fine. The senate gets to pick the VP. They would have to go with Biden. Biden would immediately fail and Trump would take over and be able to run for another term in the next election,

Swamp leadership is so desperate that they continue to expose themselves more and more each day. It’s so obvious that it’s embarrassing. If we have a Trump loss and If we don’t have a brief civil war after it, and if we lose that war. The country will fail. Democrats will remove the police. Community patrolling will takes its place. This is where the Muslim mortality police steps in with their Sharia law. It’s already going on  in New York and other cities.

Racist policies will go into effect. Similar to what is going on in Oakland Calif. They are giving money to blacks and illegals. Paying them so they don’t have to work. ..Maybe like Newsom’s plan where he gives illegals “cash” for unemployment. They doon’t have to show ID or any other type of documentation.

Any policy where it gives money to illegals is a scam. Almost a perfect scam. …They say they gave the money to the illegals but pocketed it themselves. Impossible to to trace the money because the illegals don’t need to show ID. We will never know who got the money.

Maybe they will just burn you out, like what’s happening is California.  This is what many Californians  think has been going on.

Next city to burn would be around Berkeley California. Fires could start today, tomorrow or Tuesday.

Back to Newsom. There are a minimum of 30,000 homeless in the LA area alone. Newsom is sending millions to cities that “qualify”. How to “qualify” is a mystery. What I do know is that the “qualified” cities are taking that money and buying hotels and remodeling them. Average cost is $100,000 per living space. He’s even giving money to the Pomo Indian tribe so they can buy and remodel a hotel. You know, the ones in California that don’t have to pay taxes and run their own government. Native indians  own all the casinos in Califirnia. How much you want to bet that hotel will be a casino?

Yup, millions of California tax money being spent.  All that money to create 579 housing units.

Let’s not forget the millions currently being spent to house homeless in hotels. Yes, tax money is pays for their housing, and in some cases, their drug habit.

Eventually, complete lawlessness.

Civil War? More like a world war. The left will bring in the UN. That means all the loser countries that leached off the USA after we saved them from being destroyed. That also means China taking sides with the left. You can count on Canada and Mexico helping the left which opens the west coast for invasion. We will have Russia on our side simply because Trump doesn’t believe in framing a country for crimes made up by the left.

There is something far more dangerous than anything I just mentioned. Something we all see in our lives. Some more than others. It can be our best friend or our worst enemy. It can get you when you least expect it. It’s opportunity. What will a person do given the right opportunity.

Generally speaking the average person knows right from wrong. One person can see the keys left in a car running and would never consider taking the car.. Another would see it, want to take it, but out of fear of getting caught, decides to leave it where it is. Another would see it as a opportunity to “come up” and take the car. Three possible choices. We will always have people that  will follow the law. We will always have people that would only break the law if they thought they could  get away with it. We will always have criminals. That’s where the police come in. Their existence alone creates better odds for your safety. 3 to 1 in your favor

There are people far worse than the common criminal. Their minds occupy the space where insanity meets sanity. They have no conscious. These people are predators. They prey on people and never get caught. They could be your neighbor or a friend of a friend and you would never know. They understand how opportunity works. Out of fear of getting caught they keep themselves in check. The odds are against them. Take away the police the odds of you becoming a victim just doubled, against you. Now you have to worry the person that will always be a criminal and the person that no longer fears getting caught.

People don’t understand. The danger is always at your door. Police keep the balance in your favor. Without them only creates opportunity for criminals.

Opportunity can turn normal law abiding citizens into criminals.

#Of course, this only matters if we make it that far

I’m going to give the republican party the benefit of the doubt until  more information comes out.   The system might be hacked.  More committees are  being added with money flowing to the Biden for President committee as we speak.  But….

If this is not a glitch in the system and it turns out that the democrats are actually stealing the money, they must be removed from the House,  Senate and every other political position of power in the country. If it turns out that Republicans are, guilty, then Capital Hill must fall. Every member of congress and the senate must be taken into custody.  If this is a set up to catch people like me digging around in the future. It won’t work.  It won’t stop me.

I’m at a loss for words.  Let my know your thoughts,

Respectfully,

Deplorable Patriot

Congressman Jason Smith protests Prince Harry’s interference in U.S. presidential election

The British royalty has a tradition of scrupulous non-interference in the UK’s political affairs.

That being so, it is even more imperative that British royals refrain from using their status and prestige to unduly influence other countries’ political affairs by  being partisan.

But that’s exactly what two “woke” members of the British royal family have done in videos released to the public.

They are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, aka Prince Harry, grandson of reigning Queen Elizabeth II and sixth in the line of succession to the British throne, and his D-list Hollywood actress wife Meghan Markle.

Meghan has been vocal in her objection to President Trump. She once said she would never step foot in the United States as long as Donald Trump is President. Of course, like other Hollyweirdos who said they would leave the U.S. if Trump were elected, Meghan’s words also mean nothing, as she and Harry decided to leave their cushy life in the UK to pursue a lucrative Hollywood life in the United States. See:

At least one member of Congress is doing something about it.

He is Rep. Jason Smith (R-Missouri).

Below is Congressman Smith’s letter of protest to British Ambassador Karen Pierce:

I suggest that you contact your Congressperson and Senator to ask them to voice their protests to the British government.

To find and contact your representatives, go here.

Kamala Harris lied on her Financial Disclosures and is connected to multiple campaign finance violations

Kamala Harris neglected to include all her financial information in her Financial Disclosure Reports(FDR) required by the Senate. Since her first day in the Senate until 7/8/2019 she neglected to disclose one of her pension plans. That plan is named “Legislatures Retirement System”.

It wasn’t until 7/8/2019 when she finally decided to disclose the pension plan.

While filing her FDR that was required of her at the time, she  filed amended FDR’s for the years of 2015. 2016, 2017, 2018.  The amended version filed far past the allowed deadlines. Years past.

The new amended versions now include the pension plan.

If a Senator makes a error or mistakenly leaves something out of their FDR’s, they are allowed to amend their disclosure report. They are expected to have the amendment filed that same year with a reasonable excuse.

This isn’t the case with Harris. Each year she made amendments to her FDR’s she neglected to include the Pension plan. She filed at least 8 times in 4 years and didn’t include the pension plan. She really doesn’t have an excuse for her negligence.

The following images are screenshots of pages from three current amended FDR’s.

Because of the size of the files I’ve only included pages from the reports that show the  pension plan. For the same reason I’ve also left out the original FDR’s. Not to worry because I”ve included links to the original FDR’s, amended FDR’s along with sources to everything mentioned here today. These can be found at the bottom of the page.

 

 

 

 

As you can see all of these were filed at the same time and day in 2019.

It’s important to understand that a Senator can be charged with a crime if they fail to report any required information.

Having to amend the FDR every year makes a person question her motives. Withholding information then adding it on 4 years later is criminal.

The following is a basic overview of some of the Financial Disclosure rules.

Public disclosure of a public official’s personal financial interest is often considered the key component to an effective code of conduct.  The drafters of the original Senate Code of Official Conduct in the 95th Congress considered “full and complete disclosure” to be the heart of the Code of Conduct. Pursuant to statute and Senate rules, Members, officers, certain employees of the Senate (including fellows and government employees detailed to the Senate), and Senate candidates are required to file comprehensive public financial disclosure reports. The Senate has required public reporting by statute and by Senate Rule since 1978.” 

Members, officers, and certain employees of the United States Senate, related offices, and candidates for the Senate are required by Title I of the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, as amended (the “Act,” 5 U.S.C. app., Section 101 et seq., also adopted as Senate Rule 34) and Senate Rule 41.1 to file Financial Disclosure Reports with the Secretary of the Senate, Office of Public

“The Act gives the Senate Select Committee on Ethics  the authority to administer the law for the Senate, promulgate the Senate Financial Disclosure Report Forms and Instructions, and issue advisory opinions regarding the Act for the Senate and related offices and Senate candidates.”

In addition to any Committee action, the Ethics in Government Act authorizes the Attorney General of the United States to seek a civil penalty of up to $50,000 against an individual who knowingly and willfully falsifies or fails to file or to report any required information.  Moreover, anyone who knowingly and willfully falsifies or conceals any material fact in a statement to the Government may be subject to fines, criminal prosecution, and sentencing.
See 5 U.S.C. appx. § 104(a)”.

I should point out that it doesn’t appear that she disclosed the pension plan when she filed her taxes. To be fair, it might not be required.  I’m not an expert on taxes.  I’ll  provide a link  to the tax forms she has released to the public.  I should mention that the documents appear to be incomplete and there is no way of knowing if these are the actual forms she gave to the IRS.

*Tax forms revealed,  Kamala Harris donated her clothes to Goodwill and used the receipt for a $15,000 write off on her taxes

It looks like  Harris only updated her disclosures when she decided to run for president.  This sort of criminal behavior is to be expected from Harris.  If you were to look at her campaign  at the Federal Election  Commission(FEC)  you would find that her “Kamala Harris for the People” committee and her “Kamala Harris for Senate” committee are connected to multiple  Campaign Finance violations. The most frequent violation is for accepting donations from ineligible sources.  Joe Biden has the same problems but by far more.  I’ll discuss that in the near future.  I should mention that many of the ineligible sources are the same in both the Biden and Harris committees.

  Here is examples.  Names have been redacted because of FEC laws.

 

If you  look at the entry that is dated 11/30/19 the unredacted page would show that this is the same person.  That many donations in one day should raise some flags.   Sometimes there will be donations almost daily through out  the year,  from the same sources.  That should also raise some flags.

Clicking on the names of the committees above will take you to the FEC pages I just mentioned.  Just open the RFAI files.

*Closer examination of people/businesses  on the receiving end  of some of  her committee  disbursements  will reveal that she paid at least one business that is using an address that comes up vacant.

It doesn’t matter how you look at it, Kamala Harris is a liar and a  criminal.

She-male Satanist wins GOP nomination for NH county sheriff

The Republican Party is its own worst enemy.

Aria DiMezzo

On Sept. 8, 2020, Aria DiMezzo, a man who calls himself a “she-male” “transsexual Satanist anarchist” and has the title of “High Priestess of the Reformed Satanic Church,” won the GOP nomination for county sheriff in Cheshire County, New Hampshire

DiMezzo is not even a Republican, but describes himself as a libertarian. His campaign slogan was “Fuck the Police.”

According to Inside Sources, DiMezzo is a member of the Libertarinan group “Free Keene” and therefore, was able to get into the ballot. Cheshire County GOP chair, Marilyn Huston, said that “(DiMezzo) did very well with the primary and that was wonderful. If you look at their social media and their political statements they really do not fall in line with the Republican message.”

Some 4,000 people voted for DiMezzo in the Sept. 8 GOP primary.

DiMezzo wrote in his blog about all the hate mail he’s received since news got out of his nomination:

So you’re mad. I get it. I promise you: I get it. You feel betrayed. You may even be wondering how the party that you so believed in could do something like this. But, odds are, you’re blaming me. Most people are probably angry at me, and blaming me for all this. That’s silly. I was always upfront about who I am. The good man in Rindge who looked into me found out everything he needed to know with a simple Google search. There it was, plain as day:

Anarchist. Shemale. Tranny. Libertarian. ‘Fuck the police.’ Free Talk Live. Bitcoin. Reformed Satanic Church. Black Lives Matter … I went into it expecting that I would lose the primary to a write-in candidate, because I didn’t think that so many voters were just… completely and totally oblivious about who they are voting for.

Because the fact is that you didn’t bother. You trusted the system. You trusted the establishment. You trusted the party. You felt safe. You were sure that there must be some mechanisms in place to prevent from occurring exactly what just occurred. Your anger is misplaced if you direct it at me…

Really, whose fault is all this? You don’t know anything about the people you’re voting for. You’re just blindly voting for them because you trust in the party, you trust in the system. Well, the party is broken, and the system is broken. It’s all broken.

More than 4,000 people went into the voting booth on September 8 this week, and they all filled in the circle by my name despite knowing absolutely nothing about the person they were nominating to the most powerful law enforcement position in the county. That’s a level of recklessness of which any decent human being should be ashamed.”

Sources: New York Post; Heavy.com

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, Cheshire County, NH, is overwhelmingly white and middle class (Wikipedia):

  • Total population of 77,117.
  • 96.3% white, 1.4% Hispanic or Latino, 1.2% Asian, 0.5% black or African American, 0.3% American Indian, 0.4% from other races, and 1.4% from two or more races.
  • The county’s median household income was $53,828 and the median family income was $65,936.
  • Only 6.0% of families were below the poverty line.

Curiously, using two paid people-search engines, I cannot find “Aria DiMezzo” in New Hampshire or anywhere in the United States.

If “Aria DiMezzo” is a fictitious name, then Cheshire County GOP should remove him as nominee.

If you live in New Hampshire, will you please contact the Cheshire County GOP?:

This is America today: 62% of Americans conceal their political views out of fear

How many of you have experienced what I have? — You’re in a small social gathering. Someone in your group begins ranting about Trump or some other conservative politician or policy, as if everyone in the group is in agreement.

I have never had the experience of a conservative doing that, have you?

Our personal experiences are now confirmed by a July Cato Institute survey that found that Americans increasingly are self-censoring.

Whereas in 2017, 58% of Americans said they concealed their political views, today nearly two-thirds of Americans—62%—say the political climate these days prevents them from saying things they believe because others might find them offensive.

Although conservatives are more prone to self-censorship as you would expect, the phenomenon actually crosses partisan lines, with majorities of Democrats (52%), independents (59%) and Republicans (77%) all saying they have political opinions they are afraid to share.

But it’s not all Democrats.

It’s the bullies, whom Cato Institute calls “strong” or “staunch liberals,” who are the only political group who feel they can say what they believe. Nearly 6 in 10 (58%) of “staunch liberals” feel they can freely voice their opinions, whereas a slim majority (52%) of centrist liberals feel they have to self-censor — an increase of 7% from 2017. This points to the increasing radicalization of some Democrats, who are intimidating even fellow Democrats.

But centrist liberals still have it easy compared to others: 64% of political moderates and nearly 8 of every 10 (77%) conservatives self-censor.

Self‐​censorship is widespread across demographic groups as well. Below are the percentages of each group who self-censor:

  • Race: 65% of Latinos, 64% of Whites, 49% of Blacks.
  • Gender: 65% of men, 59% of women.
  • Income: 60% of incomes over $100,000, 58% of peoople with incomes less than $20,000.
  • Age: 66% of people over 65, 55% of people under 35.
  • Religion: 71% of religious, 56% of non‐​religious.

I was surprised by more men than women engaging in self-censorship.

My interpretation of the smaller percentages of women, blacks, youth, poor, and atheists (or non-religous) who self-censor is that they are probably “staunch liberals” — radical leftists who feel and in fact do freely express their opinions and beliefs, and bully/intimidate/harass others into silence.

Methodology: The Cato Institute Summer 2020 National Survey was designed and conducted by the Cato Institute in collaboration with YouGov. YouGov collected responses online during July 1–6, 2020 from a national sample of 2,000 Americans 18 years of age and older. Restrictions are put in place to ensure that only the people selected and contacted by YouGov are allowed to participate. The margin of error for the survey is +/- 2.36 percentage points at the 95% level of confidence.

Majority of donations to Biden and Democrat PAC from untraceable suspect ‘unemployed’ people

Hollie McKay reports for Fox News, Sept. 13, 2020, that Take Back Action Fund (TBAF), a conservative nonprofit political group, is raising “serious concerns” about millions of donations reported by a major Democratic fundraising platform.

A computer analysis by TBAF found that nearly half of all 2019 donations (48.4%) and a little over half of January-August 2020 donations (50.1%) to Democrat PAC ActBlue were made by people claiming to be unemployed and not having an employer.

In contrast, TBAF found that only 4% of 2019 donations and 5.6% of the Jan.-August 2020 donations to the Republican Party’s fundraising platform WinRed came from people who did not list an employer or were unemployed. WinRed was created last year to counter ActBlue.

The contrast between donations to Biden vs. those to Trump is even starker. Whereas, 49.6% of donations to Biden came from the “unemployed”, only 2.6% of donations to Trump were from the allegedly “unemployed”.

TBAF President John Pudner explains why the large number of donations from “unemployed” people is a red flag that they may be illicit contributions (“straw donors”) from foreign interests attempting to influence U.S. elections:

“The name of employers must be disclosed when making political donations, but more than 4.7 million donations [to ActBlue in 2019] came from people who claimed they did not have an employer. Those 4.7 million donations totaled $346 million ActBlue raised and sent to liberal causes. It is hard to believe that at a time when the U.S. unemployment rate was less than 4 percent, that unemployed people had $346 million dollars to send to ActBlue for liberal causes. 4.7 million donations from people without a job … raised serious concerns.”

In response to questions by Fox News, a representative for ActBlue refused to share information about how they analyze contributions, and insisted that “we use an array of data sources, internal validation and third-party services to verify the validity of transactions,” and that many of its donations came from retirees and people who aren’t counted as employed, such as homemakers.

Blah, blah, blah.

ActBlue, created in 2004, bills itself as a “powerful online fundraising platform available to Democratic candidates and committees, progressive organizations, and nonprofits that share our values for no cost besides a 3.95% processing fee on donations. And we operate as a conduit, which means donations made through ActBlue to a campaign or organization are considered individual donations.

But the ActBlue website allows credit card donations that are not verified, so anyone from any country in the world can donate without a paper trail.

In fact, the issue of unauthenticated political donations via allowing donors to use largely untraceable prepaid credit cards which could be used to mask a donor’s identity, and to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give was also brought to light by The Washington Post in 2008.

Pudner said: “ActBlue‘s insistence on refusing to allow banks to verify their donations is an invitation to foreign programmers or others to send money through them using fake American names, and we encourage them to start letting banks verify the identity of donors to stop the potential for millions of dollars to influence our election. We found it took other vendors only a matter of hours to switch their system to allow verification of donations and thus prevent the possibility of illegal foreign money being moved into campaigns. Choosing to use an untraceable system has a higher cost in terms of the risk of credit card fraud and also tends to incur higher bank fees. And this untraceable system allows someone with a gift card to make donations in anyone’s name, even if that person never actually made that donation, or even if that person doesn’t exist at all.

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told Fox News that “China poses a greater national security threat to the U.S. than any other nation. That includes threats of election influence and interference.” On August 19, 2020, the daily newspaper Global Times, which is a mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party, endorsed Joe Biden for President. (Gateway Pundit)

Why 63% disapproval of Portland’s radical left mayor Ted Wheeler is bad news for conservatives

Portland, Oregon has now had more than 100 consecutive nights of violent mayhem by Antifa and BLM anarchists and thugs.

Portland mayor Ted Wheeler

Portland’s mayor, 58-year-old Edward Tevis “Ted” Wheeler, boasts higher-educational credentials of a B.A. in economics from Stanford University, a Master’s in business administration from Columbia University, and a Master’s in public policy from Harvard University.

The epitome of so-called “white privilege”, Wheeler is a 6th-generation Oregonian, born to and heir of a conservative wealthy family who made their fortune in the timber industry. Wheeler worked in the financial services industry for corporations including Bank of America and Copper Mountain Trust before entering politics in 2006 as a registered Republican when he was elected Multnomah, OR county commissioner.

In 2010, he was appointed State Treasurer by Oregon’s Democrat governor Ted Kulongoski. Later that year, Wheeler switched party and won the Democrat primary for Treasurer; in 2013, he was elected Treasurer in a special election. Three years later, in 2016, Wheeler was elected mayor of Portland with 54% of the vote.

George Floyd protests began in Portland on May 28, 2020. Initially peaceful, the protests turned into a riot two days later on May 30. Despite that, on June 9, Wheeler proposed the defunding of three Portland police units, including the gun violence reduction team; the “diversion” of $12 million from the police bureau and other city departments to support “communities of color”; and banning officers from using chokeholds. On June 17, the Portland city council defunded the city police by cutting at least $15 million from the police department and eliminating 84 positions.

In early July, the federal government deployed law enforcement officers to Portland for the stated purpose of protecting federal property, including the U.S. courthouse that repeatedly had been vandalized since June. The federal officers made arrests and fired pepper spray or tear gas at protesters who got too close to the courthouse. Ted Wheeler and Oregon’s Demonrat governor Kate Brown denounced President Trump’s deployment of federal officers to protect federal property in Portland.

On August 28, Wheeler wrote an open letter to President Trump asking him not to send the National Guard to the city, saying that “We don’t need your politics of division and demagoguery.” This, despite the fact that a year ago in August 2019, Wheeler had requested that the National Guard be on standby in anticipation of a potentially explosive stand-off between Antifa demonstrators and “far-right” groups. Gov. Brown denied Wheeler’s request.

On September 1, 2020, after Antifa rioters attacked, vandalized and burned a fire in the apartment building in which Wheeler has a condo, he said he would move out “for the safety” of the apartment’s residents.

Here on Fellowship of the Minds, we have wondered why Portland residents are tolerating the continuous, unceasing nightly riots and mayhem — of arson, vandalism, looting, toppling of statues, assaults, and the shooting death of a Trump supporter. Some of us speculate that Portlanders are not doing anything about the continuous riots because they fear being targeted and attacked.

But their silence and do-nothing do not mean approval.

Everton Bailey Jr. reports for Oregon Live, Sept. 8, 2020, that two months ahead of the November 3 election (and Wheeler’s reelection), a new poll shows that 63% or two-thirds of likely Portland voters have an “unfavorable” impression of mayor Ted Wheeler.

That finding has been trumpeted by conservatives, including talk radio titan Rush Limbaugh, as a sign that the tides are turning.

But is it?

My reaction to the poll is one of incredulity . Only two-thirds of Portlanders disapprove of their mayor? That means as many as a third of Portland voters actually approve of Wheeler’s handling of the continuous riots?

Here are some other findings of the phone and online poll of 435 “likely” Portland voters, conducted by California-based FM3 Research, which indicate that Portlanders haven’t really changed:

  • Only a little more than half (59%) believe Portland is heading in the wrong direction.
  • 76% view the Marxist Black Lives Matter favorably; 22% unfavorable.
  • 92% support “non-violent protests”, but as many as 67% are in favor of “these protests” — i.e., the ongoing mayhem.
  • A majority of Portlanders believe there is a systemic problem in the city’s policing system. 70% said they would vote for a November ballot measure to create a new community-driven independent police oversight system, whatever that means. Not surprisingly, there is a partisan divide on the the ballot measure, with 90% of Democrats and 60% of Independents supporting the measure, whereas 78% of conservatives and 70% of Republicanas are against it. Alas, conservatives make up a small portion of the Portland electorate.
