Sidney Powell mistakenly thought that ONLY Venezuela, Cuba, Germany, China and George Soros were in control of our election. They may have been the ones in control of the voting machines but she missed the boatloads of BALLOTS that were coming in from North Korea! Here is Roger Stone saying there is not just evidence, not just incontrovertible evidence but absolute incontrovertible evidence that this happened: "I just learned of absolute incontrovertible evidence of North Korean boats delivering ballots through a harbor in Maine, the state of Maine." Rigging the 2020 election may be the biggest conspiracy in the history of the world by 1000 times!
How were the voting machines controlled? We found out in the AZ hearings from expert witness Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai that they were programmed with something called "weighted race algorithm" which is just a fancy way of saying that the computers are rigged to add votes to one candidate while subtracting the same number of votes from the other. He wrote a computer model that took information about which parties that voters were registered with and combined it with the actual votes to somehow conclude that (in all likelihood) the machines were adding 30% to Biden's totals and subtracting 30% from Trump's totals in Maricopa county AZ. It sounded impressive, but there was zero validity to what he was doing in my opinion. If people always vote how they are registered, why have the election? And there are many independent and other 3rd party voters. It did not take much digging to discover that this guy is a total fraud. He claims to have invented email even though email including the features he claims had been in use for almost 10 years prior. He claims that over a million ballots were destroyed by MA in his own primary. I won't bore you with the details but this turned out to be totally false. No ballots were destroyed. And he also claims that his primary loss (he lost by 20%) was stolen from him the same way that Biden stole the election from Trump! In other words, he claims that even his REPUBLICAN opponent controlled the voting machines and used the weighed race algorithm against HIM in the MA primary. So it seems EVERYONE is able to control these damn machines! Not just the Democrats and all of those countries Sidney Powell listed.
None of it is true of course which was proven by the GA recount of the actual ballots which, surprise, matched the machine count which was supposed to be "rigged". Finally, people started to realize that adding and subtracting votes via rigged machines wouldn't work because then the counts the machines reported would not match the hand recounts of the actual ballots and they would get busted. I thought this would cause people to start abandoning the theory but instead they have been simply adding new aspects to the theory in order to make it work. Well they say, boxes of fraudulent real ballots are prepared and then added to the stash in the exact amounts needed to equal the votes being added to Biden's totals by the machines (don't ask why you would need to hack machines if you could inject real ballots). But wait! Literally as I type this I realize this doesn't work either because they would have to also remove the same number of Trump ballots that the machines removed and that would be quite difficult. So Dr. Ayyadurai may have been wrong. The machines probably don't subtract Trump votes. They must only add Biden votes and then the boxes of fraudulent Biden ballots needed to make the ledgers match are shipped in from North Korea, driven to PA via NY on a tractor trailer truck which then disappears without a trace. It all makes perfect sense.
There have been many other charts and graphs flying around attempting to prove votes were stolen with graphs or concepts that don't really exist like "ratio swaps". It's all been people claiming to see pictures in ink blots. If you torture the data, it will tell you anything you want to hear. You know someone is reaching considerably or trying to deceive you when they show you graphs described as: "The x-axis is, for each vote update, the ratio of other (non-2-party) votes to votes for Trump, multiplied by the number of total votes in that update." or "The X-axis is the difference between the number of Biden votes and the number of Trump votes in each vote update, and the Y-axis is the natural logarithm of the ratio of the two." No one can actually draw valid conclusions from such constructs, but I think the point is throw up so much smoke that people will start to believe there is fire.
The "Stop The Steal" operation has now raised over $150 million dollars. Where is all this money going? No one seems to be asking. I can tell you where its not going. It's not going to the GA Senate runoff races that badly need it. Instead, Trump allies are telling people NOT to vote in the GA runoffs unless the entire system is replaced which I'm guessing it won't be in the next few weeks. Here's Lin Wood, "This is Georgia - we ain’t dumb. We’re not going to go vote on January 5th on another machine made by China" referring the same machines that matched the hand counted ballots exactly and thus were proven to be perfectly good. Here's Sidney Powell, "I would encourage all Georgians to make it known that you will not vote at all until your vote is secure." This is all super helpful as Republicans are sabotaging the most winnable elections since Roy Moore. Trump and his team have been convincing GOP voters that the system is rigged against them (and why would they bother voting if they believe that?) and now they're actually being TOLD not to vote. We'll soon see if this is all a smart strategy.
Finally, it's not a good conspiracy theory unless all of the "authorities" are "in on it" and this one does not disappoint. Everyone claiming the election was secure is either a RINO (best case), a liar, a deep stater or an "enemy of the people". Bill Barr, the Attorney General of the United States, a Trump loyalist who has taken many arrows having Trump's back on the impeachment and other things says there have been investigations into both fraud in general and specifically regarding hacking the voting machines to change the results. "We have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election... There’s been one assertion that would be systemic fraud and that would be the claim that machines were programmed essentially to skew the election results. And the DHS and DOJ have looked into that, and so far, we haven’t seen anything to substantiate that."
The (former) DHS head of cybersecurity, Christopher Krebs has also said it was investigated by almost 60 security experts. "On allegations that election systems were manipulated, 59 election security experts all agree, in every case of which we are aware, these claims either have been unsubstantiated or are technically incoherent."
Here is an excerpt from the Joint Statement from Elections Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council & the Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Executive Committees:
“When states have close elections, many will recount ballots. All of the states with close results in the 2020 presidential race have paper records of each vote, allowing the ability to go back and count each ballot if necessary. This is an added benefit for security and resilience. This process allows for the identification and correction of any mistakes or errors. There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised."
Update: The bombshell fraud example of the day is already turning out to be not at all what it was claimed to be. The video supposedly showed all the legit election workers and watchers "kicked out" so that "suitcases" of fraudulent Biden ballots could be pulled out and counted "in secret" with no one the wiser (though it was all on camera). There were no "suitcases." Those are the standard ballot containers. The people who left were the "cutters" who opened the envelopes and verified them. They left when their job was done for the night. The people who remained were the counters who had to run the ballots (the ballots couldn't be left unattended overnight). Nothing was in secret. All was on camera and an official poll watcher from the Republican Secretary of State's office was there the whole time except for brief moments. Nobody kicked the other poll watchers out. They were free to come back but with an official poll watcher there, they did not have to. The entire scene was completely routine but is being narrated as absolute incontrovertible evidence of fraud.
