Rudy Giuliani (Jacquelyn Martin / Associated Press)

Rudy Giuliani and other lawyers representing President Donald Trump’s campaign outlined their case Thursday that the Nov. 3 presidential election was so deeply flawed in several key states that the results should be overturned in the president’s favor.

Giuliani said there was a pattern to the alleged irregularities in key states that suggested, he said, a “plan from a centralized place” to commit voter fraud in cities controlled by Democrats.

He said widespread adoption of vote-by-mail had allowed Democrats to take big-city corruption practices nationwide. “They picked the places where they could get away with it.”

Here are the key allegations the lawyers presented:

1. Observers were allegedly prevented from watching mail-in ballots being opened. Giuliani said that many mail-in ballots were opened without observers being able to check that they were properly signed, a key protection against fraud. Those votes, he said, were “null and void,” especially where the envelopes had been discarded, making recounts useless.

2. Allegedly unequal application of the law in Democratic counties. In Pennsylvania, whose state supreme court created new, relaxed voting rules before the election, Giuliani alleged that absentee voters in Democratic counties were allowed to “cure” defects in their ballots, while voters in Republican counties, which obeyed the state law as written, were not.

3. Voters allegedly arrived at the polls to discover other people had voted for them. Giuliani said that many provisional ballots cast in Pittsburgh were submitted by people who showed up to vote in person, only to be told that they had voted already. He alleged that Democrats had filled out absentee ballots for other people, hoping they would not show up.

4. Election officials were allegedly told not to look for defects in ballots, and to backdate ballots. Giuliani cited an affidavit from an official who swore she was told not to exclude absentee ballots for defects, and to backdate ballots so they would not appear to have been received after Election Day, to avoid a Supreme Court order to sequester those ballots.

5. Ballots casting votes for Joe Biden and no other candidates were allegedly run several times through machines. Giuliani said that there were 60 witnesses in Michigan who would attest to ballots being “produced” quickly and counted twice or thrice. He said that a minimum of 60,000 ballots, and a maximum of 100,000 ballots, were allegedly affected.

6. Absentee ballots were accepted in Wisconsin without being applied for first. Giuliani noted that Wisconsin state law was stricter regarding absentee ballots than most other states are, yet alleged that 60,000 absentee ballots were counted in the Milwaukee area, and 40,000 in the Madison area, without having been applied for properly by the voters who cast them.

7. There were allegedly “overvotes,” with some precincts allegedly recording more voters than residents, among other problems. Giuliani said there was an unusually large number of overvotes in precincts in Michigan and in Wisconsin, which he alleged was the reason that Republicans on the Wayne County Board of Canvassers had refused to certify the results there this week. He also alleged that there were some out-of-state voters in Georgia, and people who had cast votes twice there.

8. Voting machines and software are allegedly owned by companies with ties to the Venezuelan regime and to left-wing donor George Soros. Sidney Powell argued that U.S. votes were being counted overseas, and that Dominion voting machines and Smartmatic software were controlled by foreign interests, manipulating algorithms to change the results. Powell noted specifically that Smartmatic’s owners included two Venezuelan nationals, whom she alleged had ties to the regime of Hugo Chavez and Nicolas Maduro. The legal team alleged that there were statistical anomalies, such as huge batches of votes for Biden, that could not be explained except as manipulation — which, they alleged, happened in the wee hours of the morning as vote-counting had stalled. (The companies have disputed these allegations vigorously.)

9. The Constitution provides a process for electing a president if the vote is corrupted. Jenna Ellis argued that the media, had usurped the power to declare the winner of the election. She made the point, citing Federalist No. 68, that the constitutional process of selecting a president had procedural safeguards against corruption and foreign influence.
Giuliani said that the campaign believed that enough votes were flawed — more than double the margins between Biden and Trump in key states — that the president had a path to victory.

Giuliani presented evidence in the form of sworn affidavits, citing two and noting that the campaign had many more from private individuals.

He noted that several lawsuits that had been dismissed had been filed by private individuals, not the campaign directly. He said lawsuits might be filed in Arizona, and that the campaign was also examining irregularities in New Mexico and Virginia, though he said he did not think there were enough disputed votes in the latter.

Giuliani also took on the media, arguing that they had provided misleading information and condoned threats against Trump’s legal team.

Yes, Democrats Are Trying To Steal The Election In Michigan, Wisconsin, And Pennsylvania


Reported John Daniel Davidson By NOVEMBER 4, 2020

In the three Midwest battleground states, vote counting irregularities persist in an election that will be decided on razor-thin margins. As of this writing, it appears that Democratic Party machines in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania are trying to steal the election.

As reporters and commentators went to bed early Tuesday morning, all three states were too close to call, but President Trump led former Vice President Joe Biden by comfortable margins—far beyond what had been predicted in the polls. None of the networks called these states because enough mail-in ballots remained uncounted that it could swing either way, but Trump’s position looked good.

Then, something strange happened in the dead of the night. In both Michigan and Wisconsin, vote dumps early Wednesday morning showed 100 percent of the votes going for Biden and zero percent—that’s zero, so not even one vote—for Trump.

In Michigan, Biden somehow got 138,339 votes and Trump got none, zero, in an overnight vote-dump.

When my Federalist colleague Sean Davis noted this, Twitter was quick to censor his tweet, even though all he had done was compare two sets of vote totals on the New York Times website. And he wasn’t the only one who noticed—although on Wednesday it appeared that anyone who noted the Biden vote dump in Michigan was getting censored by Twitter.

Others were quick to note the partisan censorship from Twitter and raise concerns over how 100 percent of a vote dump could possibly go to Biden. But the social media giant has maintained its crackdown on sharing this information. Twitter users could not like or share a tweet from the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh noting the 138,339-vote dump.

Buzzfeed later reported that according to a spokesperson at Decision Desk HQ, the votes for Biden were the result of a “data error” from a “file created by the state that we ingested.” When the state noticed the “error” it updated its count, which somehow gave 138,339 votes to Biden and zero to Trump.

It turns out, the vote dump was the result of an alleged typo, an extra zero that had been tacked onto Biden’s vote total in Shiawassee County, Michigan. It seems the error was discovered only because Davis and other Twitter users noted how insane and suspicious the vote totals looked, and demanded an investigation that uncovered what was either a typo or an incredibly clumsy attempt to boost Biden’s vote count.

There was also something suspicious about the vote reporting in Antrim County, Michigan, where Trump beat Hillary Clinton by 30 points in 2016. Initial vote totals there showed Biden ahead of Trump by 29 points, a result that can’t possibly be accurate, as plenty of journalists noted.

After the strange results caught national attention, election officials in Antrim County said they were investigating what they called “skewed” results, working with the company that provides their election software to see what went wrong. The county clerk said they plan to have an answer by Wednesday afternoon.

Then another mysterious all-Biden vote dump happened in Wisconsin. Biden miraculously overcame a 4.1-point Trump lead in the middle of the night thanks to vote dumps in which he got—you guessed it—100 percent of the votes and Trump got zero.

Note the vertical lines in both graphs below:

On Wednesday, the Trump campaign demanded a full recount in Wisconsin, citing “reports of irregularities in several Wisconsin counties which raise serious doubts about the validity of the results.”

In Pennsylvania, the Democratic scheme to steal the election is a bit different. Rather than vote dumps that impossibly go 100 percent to Biden, Pennsylvania is relying on the Democratic Secretary of State’s plan to count indisputably late mail-in ballots as though they were received on Election Day—even if they have no postmark.

This plan was of course rubber-stamped by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which cited the need for “equitable relief” to address mail delays amid the pandemic.

Note that this isn’t just about ballots that come in after Election Day, but about ballots that come in after Election Day that don’t even have a postmark—that is, there is no way to tell when the ballots were mailed, or from where.

Although it’s true that the long delays we’ve seen for absentee ballot counts are due in part to state laws in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania that prohibit the counting of absentee ballots before Election Day, which is not the case in most other states. But the cumulative circumstances under which these absentees ballots are now being tallied is highly suspicious.

Unless election officials in Michigan and Wisconsin can explain the overnight vote-dumps and, in Michigan, the “typo” that appeared to benefit Biden, and Pennsylvania officials can explain their rationale for counting ballots with no postmark, the only possible conclusion one can come to right now is that Democrats are trying to steal the election in the Midwest.

EXCLUSIVE: Trump Campaign Releases Devastating New Ads Ahead Of Final Presidential Debate


Reported By  Ryan Saavedra |   | DailyWire.com

CLEVELAND, OHIO – SEPTEMBER 29: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden participates in the first presidential debate against U.S. President Donald Trump at the Health Education Campus of Case Western Reserve University on September 29, 2020 in Cleveland, Ohio. This is the first of three planned debates between the two candidates in the lead up to the election on November 3. (Photo by Morry Gash-Pool/Getty Images)

President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign is set to air a new lineup of advertisements at midnight tonight targeting Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden on a variety of issues ranging from policy to the growing controversy that he is facing regarding his son.

The new ad buy — five ads in all — centers on Trump’s “Promises Made, Promises Kept” campaign theme and casts Biden as someone who has achieved little over his nearly five decades in public office.

In a nearly 2-minute ad, the Trump campaign highlights a powerful speech that was given by UFC Champ Jorge Masvidal — a key advocate in Fighters Against Socialism, a program that includes MMA fighters that campaign for the president.

In the ad, Masvidal states:

I’m gonna let you in on something. The Democrats just think that they’re entitled to the Latino vote. They think that we just have to hand it over to them. That’s right. We sure as hell don’t.

They’ve got to show us what they can do for us, what they can do for our communities. We’re not going to buy the same wolf tickets and false promises that destroyed great countries like Venezuela and Cuba. It’s not gonna happen.

You know what else is not gonna work for them? Playing “Despacito” on your cellphone to pander to us. Hell no. You gotta give us some credit for having heads on our shoulders. I’m going to wrap this up with some words of Barack Obama; he said, “Elections have consequences.” That is true. And those words have never been more true than they are today. We either re-elect President Trump and Keep America Great … or we let Joe Biden destroy the greatest country the world has ever seen.

Now, I’m a professional athlete and I’ve been one for most of my life so I’ve seen things through a sports lens; that makes Donald Trump our head coach and before the global pandemic we were winning Super Bowls. And when you’re winning Super Bowls you don’t fire the coach—it doesn’t matter if you don’t like the plays he runs, the players he puts on the field, or what he says on Twitter. You sure as hell don’t replace him for another coach that’s been in the business for 47 years at every level and never won a f***ing game.

The ad will be featured on the YouTube masthead, which is the most viewed ad unit on the internet and has greater reach than MSNBC and CNN combined.

WATCH:

 

Other ads highlight a variety of issues ranging from Biden’s tax policy to the growing controversy that he is facing regarding his son.

One ad, titled, “Now We Know Why Joe Got So Angry,” highlights the growing controversy Biden faces about his actions as vice president with regard to his son’s foreign business dealings. The ad seeks to cast the Biden family as corrupt and shows Biden repeatedly getting angry when asked about his son’s foreign business dealings.

WATCH:

 

Another ad, titled, “Influence,” gets more specific about the allegations facing Biden that stem from his son’s overseas business dealings and highlights explosive reporting from the New York Post about the matter.

WATCH:

 

A fourth ad, titled, “Joe Biden Wants Your Money,” highlights Biden’s tax plan compared to Trump’s tax cuts and tells viewers that Biden will raise their taxes.

WATCH:

 

The final ad features first lady Melania Trump discussing the health benefits of getting parents back to work and sending kids back to school after living through an abnormal time due to the pandemic.

“When children are out of school they are missing more than just time in the classroom,” Melania Trump said. “They are missing the laughter of their friends and the joy of recess and play. Children’s mental health and social development must be as much of a priority as physical health. The same is true for parents. Many will be forced to make stressful choices between caring for their children and going back to work and we must address those needs as well as their own mental health and well being.”

TWITTER CENSORSHIP


Twitter locks account of White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany after she purportedly shares Hunter Biden story

The New York Post published an exclusive story titled “Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian business to VP dad,” reporting that “Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company.”

Within hours, Facebook suppressed the story on its platform, and Twitter completely locked the accounts of users who attempted to share the piece — including the New York Post’s primary Twitter account.

The Post reported on all of the censorship following its story, too, including the notification to McEnany’s account, which let her know her that she “violated our rules against distribution of hacked material.”

Twitter explained, “We don’t permit the use of our services to directly distribute content obtained through hacking that contains private information, may put people in physical harm or danger, or contains trade secrets.”

The tweet for which McEnany was purportedly locked out read, “**NEW** Email from Ukrainian executive to Hunter Biden asks Hunter to ‘use his influence’ on behalf of the firm paying him $50k/mo in email with subject ‘urgent issue’ obtained by @nypost Father @JoeBiden was in charge of Ukraine relations at time!!”

She allegedly included a link to the Post’s story.

Politico reported:

The Post story included a screenshot of what the paper said was a 2015 email from Burisma adviser Vadym Pozharskyi to Hunter Biden, thanking him for “the opportunity to meet your father.” But the email doesn’t indicate whether Pozharskyi was describing a meeting that had already occurred or one intended to occur in the future. Nevertheless, the Post reported that the existence of such a meeting undercut Biden’s long-held assertions that he had no involvement with his son’s business dealings.

Biden’s campaign said in a statement, “We have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”

However, Politico added that “Biden’s campaign would not rule out the possibility that the former VP had some kind of informal interaction with Pozharskyi, which wouldn’t appear on Biden’s official schedule. But they said any encounter would have been cursory. Pozharskyi did not respond to a request for comment.”

‘Election Interference’: Twitter Locks Trump’s Campaign Account, Adds Warning Label To House GOP Government Link

Twitter continued its crackdown on information damaging to Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden on Thursday, locking the campaign account of President Donald Trump over a video that it posted and adding a warning label to an article posted by House Republicans on a .gov domain.

The censorship comes after The New York Post published explosive reports yesterday and today outlining new allegations about the business dealings of Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

Tim Murtaugh, Director of Communications for the Trump campaign, tweeted out a screenshot of the email that the campaign received from Twitter, writing: “Twitter has locked out @TeamTrump for posting video of clips of Joe Biden lying about never speaking to Hunter about foreign business deals. Includes snips of @nypost exposing the lies. Biden doesn’t dispute the authenticity of the docs. STILL protecting Biden from bad story.”

 

The video that Team Trump posted spliced together quotes from Joe Biden denying that he knew anything about his son’s overseas business dealings along side snippets from The New York Post’s report in the following order:

NEW YORK POST: Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad.

JOE BIDEN: “I have never discussed with my son or my brother or anyone else anything thing happening to do with their businesses. Period.”

NEW YORK POST: Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm. [Shows photo of a Burisma executive playing golf with Joe and Hunter Biden.]

BIDEN: “I did [sic] anything wrong and, uh, I didn’t realize he was on the board till after was, after he had been on the board and, at the same time, he has come forward and said it was a mistake on his part to be on the board.”

EMAIL FROM UKRAINE GAS EXECUTIVE TO HUNTER BIDEN: Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent some time together. It’s really an honor and pleasure.

“I don’t know what he was doing. I know he was on the board. I found out he was on the board after he was on the board and that was it.”

NEW YORK POST: An email dated May 12, 2014—shortly after Hunter Biden joined the Burisma board—shows Pozharskyi attempting to get him to use his political leverage to help the company.

“The fact is I was unaware of his investments until those occurred and I’ve never discussed what my son’s business with him because I didn’t want any conflict.”

EMAIL: Dear Hunter and Devon, Following our talks during the visit to the Como Lake and our further discussions, I would like to bring the following situation to your attention.

“I don’t discuss business with my son. I didn’t know that was the case.”

NEW YORK POST: The exchange came the same day that Burisma announced it had expanded its board of directors by adding Hunter Biden.

“I have never spoke to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

“I have never discussed my business or their business, my son’s or daughter’s, and I’ve never discussed them.”

CHYRON: Joe Biden is a liar Who Has Been Ripping Off Our Country for Years.

The claims in the New York Post’s report have sparked controversy and pushback, including accusations of significant “holes and red flags,” among them questions about the veracity of the emails, how the information was obtained, and the involvement of Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon.

Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC) tweeted out a link to a news story from Fox Business that highlighted Twitter’s other actions in clamping down on the House Judiciary Committee Republicans website for posting The New York Post’s article to their website.

“Big Tech is censoring @JudiciaryGOP all because their government link contains information about a Democratic presidential candidate,” Walker wrote. “This is election interference.”

 

Others, including Donald Trump Jr. and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) also called the censorship by Twitter “election interference.”

 

‘You’re Not a Journalist Brian, You’re an Activist!” – WOW! – Trump Senior Legal Advisor Destroys CNN’s Brian Stelter after Nasty Insult (VIDEO)


Reported By Jim Hoft | Published June 14, 2020 at 3:51pm

Brilliant and talented Senior Legal Advisor to the Trump Campaign, Jenna Ellis, joined CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday Morning on Reliable Sources.

Poor Brian was completely outmatched with the brilliant and talented Trump associate.

During their discussion Stelter complained about the term “fake news” and then got personal when he told Ellis that she would regret using “slurs” when her kids and grandkids see this one day.
What a jerk!

That’s when Jenna fired back: “Oh, now you’re going for the personal attacks. That’s when you know you’ve lost the debate… C’mon, that’s really low, Brian. You’re not trying to do your job. You’re not a journalist, Brian, you’re an activist!”

Ouch!
Jenna Ellis was exceptional.
