2020 Election Fraud Is CCP ‘Assassin’s Mace’: Patrick Byrne

December 16, 2020 Updated: December 17, 2020

Election fraud is the secret “assassin’s mace” of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) that has long confounded security hawks, according to tech billionaire and entrepreneur Patrick Byrne, who back in August assembled a cyber intelligence team to analyze the U.S. voting system.

“For 10 years or more, there have been references to a coming ‘assassin’s mace’ in the Chinese literature—where they take out the United States with one stroke,” Byrne told The Epoch Times’ “American Thought Leaders” program. “The national security community in the United States has been trying to figure this out: Is it their new aircraft carrier? Is that the hypersonic missile? Is it this, that, is it an EMP?”

“I don’t think so, ” he told host Jan Jekielek. “The one stroke that takes the United States out is what we’re experiencing right now.”

The 2020 vote involved “massive election fraud,” he says. “Not voter fraud, but election fraud.”

Byrne has been a driving force in the research for lawsuits filed by attorneys Lin Wood and Sidney Powell. He has also been working together with ASOG, the company that recently carried out the forensic audit on voting machines in Antrim County, Michigan.

Byrne said he started investigations back in August, and that as a result, he anticipated the very irregularities which he later observed in the November election.

He says his team of online security experts now believes Chinese developers are “under the hood” of the software that has infiltrated at least two of the main voting systems in the United States.

Suppliers of such election software and systems involved in the U.S. election have responded to allegations of voting irregularities with consistent denial that their systems can be manipulated or that they have any such connection to foreign governments.

‘Reverse-engineering the Coup’

Byrne described the election as a soft coup.

“We are basically reverse-engineering this coup,” said Byrne, in reference to his team of 30-40 people.

Byrne says that he fell in with cyber experts who had been looking at election manipulation since 2018 when they were hired as part of a blue-ribbon commission set up to examine potential election fraud in Texas.

“That group has had two years to really reverse engineer what the rest of America has had a couple of weeks to understand,” he said. “They had already figured out really about a dozen different ways you could defeat an election or hack an election—in a broad sense of hack, not necessarily just electronic cyber guys hacking.”

According to Byrne, they found cheating was possible “at an industrial level, in terms of generating hundreds of thousands of fake votes.”

Byrne says the pattern of manipulation can be identified through examining three key points—what he calls “three buckets of facts.”

“One bucket is understanding the systems themselves and how they were built: the functionality that was built into them and the vulnerabilities that exist.”

The second bucket, he says, relates to how the election process played out. “[In the event of fraud] you would expect people to have certain experiences when they either go in and vote or if they volunteer and work in the precincts.”

He gives the examples of vote tabulating being shut down, of poll watchers being denied entry, and of the video of election workers pulling out cases of ballots from under a table after observers had gone home and then scanning them.

The third bucket, he says, is the extreme statistical outliers that would be thrown up by such a manipulation process.

“Things like that happened—these statistical outliers: Having 123,000 votes in a row going to one candidate; or in Pennsylvania, I believe it was 580,000 votes got processed that were 99.4 percent for Biden… and they came through exactly when all the Republicans had been told they had to leave.”

“They’re on the order of you winning the Powerball lottery this week, and next week and the week after—and that happening in dozens of places around America at the same time.”

“When you put those three different narratives together, they also just come together perfectly. They all reinforce each other.”

Traced to China

Byrne says that the manipulation of the voting systems can be traced back to China.

“There’s a chain of command basically from China through Iran to Cuba and Venezuela,” he said. “The Chinese are funding Smartmatic through the Panamanian division of Smartmatic, but it bounces through Venezuela.”

“There is code buried within the Dominion machines that has been turned up that seems to show Chinese provenance.”

“There are Chinese developers under the hood of this stuff back in China who are actually getting their software into the Smartmatic systems which have infiltrated at least two of the main voting systems used domestically.”

“I say this as a guy who loves China,” he adds. “I speak Chinese, I have a great affection for China and the Chinese people—but I’m not such a big fan of the CCP.”

Smartmatic says its products were used only in one LA county in the U.S. 2020 election and has consistently denied any claims of wrongdoing or involvement in voter or election fraud past or present. It says it has no involvement with any governments or political parties or with Dominion.

Dominion Voting Systems has also consistently denied any wrongdoing or vulnerabilities in its systems and said that it does not use software owned by Smartmatic and that it has no ownership ties to the governments of China, Cuba, or Venezuela. Dominion products are used in 28 states.

Byrne, however, says that software created by Smartmatic went through a series of corporate mergers, acquisitions, divestments, and licensing agreements before ending up in at least two of the main commercial voting systems being used in the United States, including Dominion. “Its genetic lineage [goes] back to the software,” he says.

A number of other analysts have signed affidavits to the same effect.

Dominion has also come under scrutiny for its ownership structure after its parent company raised funds with the help of a Swiss bank before the 2020 U.S. presidential election. The transaction, peculiar in several ways, has led some to speculate that a Chinese entity could be an indirect investor in the company.

Byrne says that stealing the national election doesn’t require cheating across the board. “There are six counties that you need to steal. If you steal these six counties around the country, that flips the six states they’re in, which flips the electoral college votes that come with them, which flips the nation, ” he said. “You’ve got to take six places and cheat like crazy there.”

He says that some online security experts, who he describes as white hat hackers, say that they would give the election systems a rating of just one or two out of 10 for security.

The Plot to Steal America

This is the most complete synopsis of what is happening in our country and what we can to do about it.  Please watch it, and challenge your family, friends and coworkers to watch it.  This is our spiritual awakening, the battle of good versus evil and we are all in this battle like it or not.  By the Grace of God  and unity,  we can and will prevail.

The Plot to Steal America 

Spiritual  awakening is happening around the world and many still do not even realize it.   It was considered a lifelong process, simply reconnection to the source,  God by many names. It is much like waking from a deep state of prolonged unconsciousness with our own unique experiences and perspectives, a paradigm shift that reconfigures the way we experience everything.  The year 2020 is a condensed version of our lifelong process of awakening to our Creator. World wide, we are 7.7 billion strong, as our  positive and negative thoughts, emotions 72321039_3706910186001498_493345640407891968_nand actions  created the world we live in today.  The energy pulsating from our hearts  vibrates into world.  We have been divided by politics and  religion, with continuous messaging programming  from the media.  We have been medicated and vaccinated by the pharmaceutical corporations, believing it will heal us, while unknowingly, we each have the ability to heal ourselves.

It is up to us to raise the collective  consciousness of the planet. Collective consciousness is our thoughts, emotions and actions which operates as a unifying force.  Whatever you think, feel and do is felt by everyone, creating not only your reality, but the world.   Our society as a whole is a culmination and reflection of our attitudes and how we display them internally and externally. Each one of us is playing a role in collectively creating our own reality as well as the reality of those around us.  Our beliefs and intentions are very powerful and the proof is right before your eyes; the world we have today. We can change our world together!

 

 

Who is Stealing America?

The year 2020 has been most unusual.

It started with an unprecedented global pandemic caused by the CCP virus, and it’s concluding with the U.S. presidential election, which has captivated the world.

On election night, on Nov. 3, an assortment of anomalies were observed, followed by a large number of specific allegations of election fraud. As the integrity of the election continued to be questioned and evidence continued to emerge, most mainstream media stuck to a one-sided narrative by calling the 2020 election the most secure in American history, and sought to silence opposing voices.

The results of the 2020 election will not only decide the future of the United States, but also determine the future of the world.

Following election night, The Epoch Times’ investigative team quickly went to work. In an attempt to uncover the issues behind the election, investigative reporter Joshua Phillip traveled across the country to swing states to interview whistleblowers, big data experts, and election experts.

This is the first investigative documentary published on election integrity in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

Why was the vote count halted in key swing states on election night? What are the problems and potential fraud associated with mail-in ballots? Is Dominion Voting Systems secure or not? What lies behind the $400 million received by the parent company of Dominion Voting Systems less than a month before the election? Who is trying to manipulate the U.S. election behind the scenes? Who is the benefactor of an increasingly divided American society? What will become of America at this historical juncture?

What choice should you, I, and every American patriot make? The Epoch Times’ investigative team presents to you a detailed investigative report.

Today, the electoral college votes will be sealed and sent by special carrier to Washington where they will remain sealed until January 6th when the House and Senate will come into a joint session to open the votes. The media is going to make you believe that it’s all over and Joe Biden is now officially president… On January 6th, Nancy Pelosi will sit down with the rest of the House members as she has no special power or authority over the hearing… Vice President Mike Pence will have all the authority as president of the Senate for that day and will accept or reject motions to decide the next steps by the assembly. Remember… Mike Pence is in full authority that day as written in the Constitution. The ballots will be certified today but that means nothing… The votes will be opened and at that point one House member could, and most likely will, raise their hand to object to the Vice President on the state of elector’s votes. That objection could cover fraud or any other reason, and with the seconding of that objection everything changes. Everything!!! The House and Senate will divide for two hours (at least) to debate, then vote. The vote will be per Senator with the Vice President being the deciding vote if needed in the Senate, while the vote in the House will be only be ONE vote per delegation, per state, not per House member!!! The Republicans have 30 delegation votes compared to the Democrats 20 delegation votes. If this scenario runs true, President Trump gets re-elected. The Democrats, the media, social networks and globalists around the world will come unhinged and chaos will erupt. President Trump is trying to do the right thing and go through the courts first, expose all the fraud, but we all knew that none of the courts, even the Supreme Court wanted to touch this issue with a 10-ft pole! This is why our forefathers were so brilliant because they knew something like this could happen someday. So, don’t listen to the media and all their deception and lies. All you have to do is read the Constitution and you know that the law, policies and procedures in the end are on our side.

Ivermectin Highlighted for Early Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19

December 14, 2020 Updated: December 14, 2020

Doctors at a recent Senate hearing stressed the importance of more research and guidance on the early or preventative treatment of COVID-19 in the fight against the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, even after the roll-out of vaccines.

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, led by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), held a second hearing on early outpatient treatment for COVID-19 on Dec. 8 to “discuss early treatment options that attack the disease in the first stage by limiting viral replication” in hopes of preventing disease progression, hospitalizations, and death.

Dr. Armand Balboni, CEO of Appili Therapeutics Inc., said there is a need for options to combat the virus at various stages, particularly “at the moment of exposure or confirmed infection.”

Antiviral drugs that target the CCP virus, particularly ones that are safe and can be “easily manufactured and distributed globally,” can fill the role in treating COVID-19, the disease cause by the virus, outside of a hospital setting.

“These drugs are not intended to replace COVID-19 vaccines and other therapeutics for severely ill patients, but to cover aspects of disease management beyond the scope of vaccines and therapeutics for severe cases,” Balboni said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guideline for people who test positive for the CCP virus is to quarantine and self-monitor symptoms. Treatments are provided when an individual requires hospitalization.

Data shows that certain repurposed drugs can treat the early phase of COVID-19, so the scientific community and federal health agencies should be encouraging, instead of “discouraging, and in some cases prohibiting, the research and use of drugs that have been safely used for decades,” Johnson said.

“In fact, there has been a concerted effort to block doctors who actually treat COVID patients from compassionately using their ‘off label’ prescription rights for early treatment protocols,” he added.

An off-label prescription allows doctors to prescribe a drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a condition other than its intended use “when they judge that it is medically appropriate for their patient.” It is a common and legal practice in the medical community.

Scientists are finding that ivermectin—an oral drug that treats scabies, parasitic infections, river blindness, and rosacea in humans—is also effective in treating COVID-19. The drug is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines.

Dr. Jean-Jacques Rajter, a pulmonologist in Florida, was one of the first doctors to use ivermectin to treat patients with severe COVID-19 symptoms early on in the pandemic. This “laid the foundation” for him and his co-authors to conduct a retrospective observational study that found a much lower mortality rate in hospitalized patients given ivermectin than those in a standard care group.

Rajter says that ivermectin was soon adopted as part of the hospital’s treatment protocol for COVID-19, and more than seven months later, “The success rate of the Ivermectin based protocol is now far superior to what it was in its early days.”

He says more randomized controlled trials are needed to confirm the “preliminary findings” and address any safety concerns on the use of ivermectin. Yet, while his team “has multiple study protocols in place, ready to be implemented in short order,” funding and support for such a study has been difficult.

Dr. Kory Pierre, a pulmonologist at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center, says he and members of his organization at Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance have spent “almost nine months tirelessly reviewing the scientific literature to gain insight into this virus and the disease process and to develop effective treatment protocols” while treating COVID-19 patients.

They have developed a protocol called I-MASK+ to prevent and treat early symptoms of COVID-19 after extensive research on ivermectin.

“In the last 3-4 months, emerging publications provide conclusive data on the profound efficacy of the anti-parasite, anti-viral drug, anti-inflammatory agent called ivermectin in all stages of the disease,” Pierre said.

“Ivermectin is highly safe, widely available, and low cost,” he added. “We now have data from over 20 well-designed clinical studies, 10 of them randomized, controlled trials, with every study consistently reporting large magnitude and statistically significant benefits in decreasing transmission rates, shortening recovery times, decreasing hospitalizations, or large reductions in deaths.”

In his closing statement, Pierre pleaded for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to look at his organization’s review of the available data on ivermectin that has not been peer-reviewed.

“All I ask is for the NIH to review our data that we’ve compiled of all of the emerging data … We have immense amounts of data to show that it must be implemented and implemented now.”

The NIH does not recommend the use of ivermectin except in a clinical trial.

The FDA says ivermectin “should be avoided” as its benefits and safety haven’t been established and that “testing is needed to determine whether ivermectin might be appropriate” for prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

Information about ivermectin hasn’t been updated since Aug. 27 on the NIH’s website, or since May 1 on the FDA’s website, although more clinical data have been published about the drug in preventing and treating COVID-19.

Remdesivir is the only FDA-approved drug for treating hospitalized COVID-19 patients who require oxygen supplementation. Yet studies show no effect on mortality and only a small benefit on time of recovery (hospital discharge by about one to three days.)

The most recent study involving 1,033 hospitalized patients, found that a combination of remdesivir and baricitinib, an anti-inflammatory drug, allowed patients to recover a median of one day quicker than those in the control group consisting of remdesivir and a placebo.

Other COVID-19 treatments such as monoclonal antibodies and dexamethasone have been granted emergency use authorization by the FDA.

The monoclonal antibodies are prescribed for mild to moderate outpatient COVID-19 although there is “insufficient data from clinical trials to recommend either for or against the use,” while dexamethasone, the only repurposed drug, has been effective in treating severe COVID-19 symptoms.

Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, PhD, says the lack of funding for randomized trials on existing drugs for early intervention of COVID-19 is leaving some scientists and physicians to not prescribe certain drugs or other therapies despite their effectiveness.

Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford University, says this is where the NIH can play a role.

“In principle, the NIH exists to solve this market failure,” Bhattacharya says. “It could and should use its resources to help fund randomized evaluations of these drugs for off-label purposes.”

The NIH did not respond to a request for comment.

Attacked by Media

Johnson said that prior to the hearing, he and the physicians were attacked by media calling it “dangerous, and instead of waiting until after the hearing to trash this information and our witnesses, The New York Times and other publications have already run pre-emptive attacks, implying this hearing is anti-vaccine.”

Balboni, a life-long Democrat and a subscriber to The NY Times, says he almost didn’t participate in the hearing. “I have to say, I was quite dismayed this morning and almost didn’t participate when I saw the news that I was participating as a fringe member of an anti-vaccine group,” Balboni says. “That couldn’t be further from the truth.”

Sen. Gary Peters (D-Mich) the only Democrat present at the hearing, in his opening statement before walking out, accused the committee of being “used as a platform to attack science and promote discredited treatments.”

“Sadly, it appears that today’s hearing will follow the same path, playing politics with public health, and will not give us the information we need to tackle this crisis,” Peters said. “The panelists have been selected for their political, not their medical, views.”

The other Democrat members refused to attend the hearing. Five Republicans also didn’t attend.

Johnson said he doesn’t understand the “concerted effort to silence the voices” of health professionals promoting early treatments for COVID-19.

Trump: Supreme Court ‘Has a Chance to Save Our Country’

President Donald Trump asserted on Thursday that the nation’s highest court can save America, depending on what happens in the coming weeks.

“The Supreme Court has a chance to save our Country from the greatest Election abuse in the history of the United States,” the Republican wrote in a social media statement.

“78% of the people feel (know!) the Election was RIGGED,” he added.

Trump was referencing the major lawsuit brought by Texas this week to the Supreme Court.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin, arguing the states changed election laws in violation of the U.S. Constitution and that the relaxation of ballot rules led to irregularities.

Seventeen states in a filing urged the nation’s top court to take up the challenge.

Changes to mail-in ballot procedures “removed protections that responsible actors had recommended for decades to guard against fraud and abuse in voting by mail,” the states alleged in the brief.

Trump highlighted the filing, writing: “Wow! At least 17 States have joined Texas in the extraordinary case against the greatest Election Fraud in the history of the United States. Thank you!”

In separate motions, six states asked asked the Supreme Court to let them intervene in the lawsuit; Ohio argued against the relief sought by Texas; and 22 states filed a brief in opposition to the suit.

The battle lines are primarily inter-party, though Ohio’s attorney general is Republican.

Trump and fellow Republicans have alleged fraud and other irregularities led to the election being stolen from the president. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has declared victory and Democrats have asserted the election was conducted smoothly with insignificant levels of fraud.

The Epoch Times is not calling the race at this time.

Biden’s team didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Leading up to Nov. 3, Trump often said the Supreme Court would likely need to weigh in on election-related legal battles.

“I think this will end up in the Supreme Court,” he told reporters in September. That month, he defended filling the vacancy left by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg because of the need for nine justices to hear election cases.

“We need nine justices. You need that. With the unsolicited millions of ballots that they’re sending—it’s a scam, it’s a hoax. Everybody knows that. And the Democrats know it better than anybody else,” Trump said.

Trump also told “Fox & Friends” around the same time that he would respect the election results if the Supreme Court ruled that Biden won.

Trump ended up nominating Amy Coney Barrett to the seat Ginsburg left. Barrett was confirmed by the Senate, giving Trump three appointees on the court and making the number of Republican-appointed judges six.

Amid the fracas triggered by the Texas case, Trump met with attorneys general at the White House on Thursday. A list of attendees wasn’t released and the president didn’t have a scheduled press conference.

Sen. Cruz Agrees to Argue Pennsylvania Election Case If Taken Up by Supreme Court

Texas SCOTUS Case Highlights Non-Legislative Election Rule Changes in Battleground States

December 8, 2020 Updated: December 8, 2020

Texas’ Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton on Tuesday filed an election lawsuit in the U.S. Supreme Court against Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin, alleging that the states used the pandemic to unlawfully change their election laws and urging the top court to have the election results declared unconstitutional.

Paxton argued in the filing (pdf) that the states used the outbreak of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus as an excuse make non-legislative changes to their election rules “through executive fiat or friendly lawsuits, thereby weakening ballot integrity.”

He is requesting that the U.S. Supreme Court rules to prohibit the counting of the Electoral College votes cast by the four states and for those states that have already appointed electors, he asks the court to direct state legislatures to appoint new electors.

“While investigations into allegations of unlawful votes being counted and fraud continue, even the appearance of fraud in a close election would justify exercising the Court’s discretion to grant the motion,” Paxton argued, and called for the high court to extend the Dec. 14 deadline for certification of Electoral College electors “to allow these investigations to be completed.”

In seeking a determination by the court that the four battleground states conducted the 2020 election in violation of the Constitution, Paxton detailed actions taken by these states to modify election rules.

Pennsylvania

Paxton argues that Pennsylvania’s Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar unilaterally and without legislative approval modified several state statutes requiring signature verification for absentee and mail-in ballots.

After several voter advocacy groups sued Boockvar in August claiming existing signature verification procedures for mail-in voting were unlawful, the Pennsylvania Department of State settled with the plaintiffs, issuing revised guidance stating, “The Pennsylvania Election Code does not authorize the county board of elections to set aside returned absentee or mail-in ballots based solely on signature analysis by the county board of elections.”

Paxton argues this move violated Pennsylvania law and that it “unconstitutionally did away with Pennsylvania’s statutory signature verification requirements.”

These claims mirror those made in an earlier lawsuit against Boockvar ahead of the election, with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling unanimously to prohibit counties from rejecting a ballot if the voter’s signature on it does not resemble the signature on the voter’s registration form.

Another claim Paxton made in the complaint to the U.S. Supreme Court was that, while Pennsylvania’s state legislature enacted bipartisan election reforms in 2019 that set a deadline for receiving mail-in ballots for 8:00 pm on Election Day, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court later extended that deadline to three days after Election Day.

He also noted in the complaint that, prior to the election, Boockvar sent an email to local election officials urging them to provide opportunities to contact voters to “cure” defective mail-in ballots, which he said violated the state election code.

“This blatant disregard of statutory law renders all mail-in ballots constitutionally tainted and cannot form the basis for appointing or certifying Pennsylvania’s presidential electors to the Electoral College,” Paxton wrote in the complaint.

The Pennsylvania Department of State declined to comment on the suit.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, in a statement on Twitter, denounced Paxton’s complaint: “These continued attacks on our fair and free election system are beyond meritless, beyond reckless—they are a scheme by the President of the United States and some in the Republican party to disregard the will of the people—and name their own victors.”

“These factless, baseless ‘lawsuits’ to stir confusion and doubt in our systems are un-American and we should not allow this circus to continue,” Shapiro said in a separate statement.

Pennsylvania’s certified election results put Democrat Joe Biden ahead of President Donald Trump by over 80,000 votes.

The number of votes affected by the various alleged constitutional violations exceeds this margin, according to Paxton’s complaint.

Georgia

Paxton argues in the Supreme Court filing that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, unilaterally and without legislative approval, abrogated Georgia’s statute governing the signature verification process for absentee ballots.

The statute prohibits the opening of absentee ballots until after polls open on Election Day, but in April the State Election Board adopted a rule issued by Raffensperger that authorized county election officials to begin processing ballots up to three weeks prior.

Another change Paxton objected to was an agreement Raffensperger entered into in settlement of a lawsuit brought against him by the Georgia Democratic Party, which changed the statutory signature verification requirements. The settlement made it more difficult to reject questionable ballots by requiring a registrar who suspected a defective signature to seek a review by two other registrars, a majority vote to discard the ballot, and additional obstacles like all three registrars having to sign their names on the rejected ballot and write down the reason for its rejection.

Paxton argued this change, which was not ratified by Georgia’s legislature, made it less likely to reject questionable ballots and “materially benefitted” Biden as the former vice president received nearly double the number of absentee ballots than Trump.

“The effect of this unconstitutional change in Georgia election law, which made it more likely that ballots without matching signatures would be counted, had a material impact on the outcome of the election,” Paxton wrote.

Georgia state Sen. William Ligon, a Republican, told The Epoch Times that the consent order was not approved by the legislature. “That’s contrary to law and the federal Constitution,” he said.

In an emailed statement, Jordan Fuchs with Raffensperger’s office said: “The allegations in the lawsuit are false and irresponsible. Texas alleges that there are 80,000 forged signatures on absentee ballots in Georgia, but they don’t bring forward a single person who this happened to. That’s because it didn’t happen.”

According to certified results, Biden leads Trump in Georgia by over 12,000 votes.

Michigan

Paxton alleges that Michigan’s Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, unilaterally and without legislative approval, abrogated Michigan election statutes relating to absentee ballot applications and signature verification.

While the Michigan constitution provides for “no excuse” mail-in voting, Benson announced in May that her office would send unsolicited absentee-voter applications by mail to all 7.7 million registered voters, in violation of Michigan Election Law, which does not give the Secretary of State the power to distribute absentee ballot applications, Paxton argued.

Moreover, Michigan law requires that applicants sign an absentee ballot application form, a rule that Paxton argued was violated when Benson launched a program in June that allowed absentee ballots to be requested online, without signature verification.

“These non-legislative modifications to Michigan’s election statutes resulted in a number of constitutionally tainted votes that far exceeds the margin of voters separating the candidates in Michigan,” Paxton contended.

According to Michigan’s certified results, Biden leads Trump by a margin of over 146,000 votes.

The Epoch Times reached out to Benson’s office for comment, but did not receive an immediate reply.

Responding to the complaint, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said in a statement: “The motion filed by the Texas Attorney General is a publicity stunt, not a serious legal pleading.”

“The Michigan issues raised in this complaint have already been thoroughly litigated and roundly rejected in both state and federal courts—by judges appointed from both political parties,” she continued, adding that Paxton’s actions “are beneath the dignity of the office of Attorney General and the people of the great state of Texas.”

In his complaint, Paxton argues that the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) unconstitutionally modified Wisconsin election laws in a way that weakened or entirely removed established safeguards to ensure absentee ballot integrity.

One of these modifications involved the establishment of hundreds of drop boxes to collect absentee ballots, including ones that were unmanned.

“However, the use on any drop box, manned or unmanned, is directly prohibited by Wisconsin statute,” Paxton argued.

He also alleged that the WEC and local election officials encouraged voters to unlawfully declare themselves “indefinitely confined” so that they could, under Wisconsin law, avoid security measures like photo ID requirements and signature verification when applying to vote absentee.

Paxton cited guidance issued by Dane County and Milwaukee County clerks indicating that all voters should mark themselves as “indefinitely confined” due to the pandemic.

Further, he cited a directive issued by WEC to Wisconsin clerks prohibiting removal of voters from the registry for indefinite-confinement status even if voters were no longer “indefinitely confined.”

He also alleged that the WEC issued guidance permitting clerks to add missing addresses from certifications on absentee ballots, in violation of Wisconsin election laws.

Wisconsin Assemblyman Ron Tusler, a Republican, told The Epoch Times this week that the commission guidance went against state law.

“State law says one thing and they’re doing something else,” he said.

Certified results in Wisconsin put Biden ahead of Trump by a margin of over 20,000 votes.

A WEC spokesman told The Epoch Times via email that the commission doesn’t comment on lawsuits.

Paxton argued that the actions he outlined in his complaint “constitute non-legislative changes to State election law by executive-branch State election officials, or by judicial officials” and, as such, votes cast by Electoral College electors pursuant to these actions should not be considered constitutionally valid.

Perhaps the following States Attorneys General will be joining in the case. I think #WeThePeople should demand it 

 

Was China Involved? You decide!

China, August 19, 1966 – Chinese students launched a fight for social justice to fight for the rights of the oppressed in China. It was believed the ‘patriarchal system’ in China had been created by the 1% and held down women, minorities, and the working class. The students cried out for a revolution and change, and consequently launched the infamous Chinese Cultural Revolution.

Students put a red band around their arm to stand in solidarity with the oppressed and download (44)called for a change on old ideas that they called the FOUR OLDS. The Four Olds were: Old Customs, Old Culture, Old Habits, and Old Ideas.

The movement was supported by the Chinese media.

Mass demonstrations and looting by the students ensued.

Statues were torn down.

Chinese architecture was destroyed.

Classical literature and Chinese paintings were torn apart and burned.

Temples were desecrated.

The Cemetery of Confucius was attacked.

The corpse of the 76th-generation Duke Yansheng was removed from its grave and hung from a tree.

Wealthy homes were attacked and destroyed.

Many families’ long-kept genealogy books were burned to ashes.

All of history, in short, was to be removed and replaced. This was the central meaning of Cultural Revolution: That China was going to destroy every trace of its bourgeois (privileged) past and replace it with a new culture built on the principles of Maoism and Marxism.

download (45)Communist leaders like President Liu Shaoqi were taken out of power and replaced with men Mao believed were not critical of his reign.

Public leaders who were considered to be oppressive were tried by angry mobs and vigilantes.

Three days later, August 22, 1966, a central directive was issued to stop police intervention. The police were disbanded in the city and the students formed a community solution called the RED GUARD. The RED GUARDS policed the communities and punished anyone who did not agree with their ideas.

download (46)Even people that supported the movement, but had bad thoughts (“wrong thinking”) could be punished.

Though many Christians supported the movement in the beginning, they quickly became the number one target of the RED GUARDS and public trials were held to condemn them to death.

Many of those that were on board with the cause of the rebellion, in the beginning, saw that it was not really what they had signed up for, but by then it was too late. The power that the Red Guard wanted had already been given.

More people died during the cultural revolution in China than any war, famine, or natural disaster in the history of man. An estimated 20 to 30 million people were killed.

Question everything. The Truth, requires no law to enforce it.
