It’s a day late and a dollar short, but it gives some much-needed context for Democrat schemes to nationalize the election process.
After all that drama and delay, the final vote tallies in Georgia gave Biden something like a 12,000 vote margin of victory. That’s not a landslide by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s not an insignificant number either, so long as there is a high degree of confidence that every person who cast those ballots was the citizen with the legal right to do so.
That was the point of contention from the very beginning. Ironically, it will ALSO be the exact argument that Gavin Newsom uses to whittle down (or ‘suppress’ to use the popular Democrat term for it) any recall vote that cannot be verified as someone who has any legal authority to cast such a vote.
Isn’t it cute how suddenly, when the vote could HURT a Democrat, we begin to care about such trivialities as ‘authenticating the vote’ again?
The Republican objection wasn’t ever the number of ballots themselves, it was that they were appropriately cast. The information we have now will reduce public confidence in a legitimate election more than ever before.
It comes down to a question of ‘chain of custody’.
There’s a reason in-person voting is preferred. One person shows up, marks a ballot, submits it, and it stays sealed in a box on a secure site until it is counted, ideally at the end of that same day.
Barring any silliness with ‘hanging chads’, or machine error recording the wrong candidate, the ballot you fill out, and the person you are supporting will match.
Messing with that chain of custody is not easily pulled off. Mail-in ballots, on the other hand, is another matter entirely. They require documentation to authenticate chain of custody.
That’s where we run into a problem.
Four months after the November 3, 2020 presidential election, state and county officials in Georgia have failed to produce chain of custody documents for an estimated 404,691 vote by mail absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes and subsequently delivered to county registrars for counting.
As of March 3, only 56 of Georgia’s 159 counties have provided ballot transfer form data to The Georgia Star News. The number of absentee by mail ballots delivered to registrars in those 56 counties total only 195,309, or 32.5 percent, of the estimated 600,000 absentee vote by mail ballots deposited in drop boxes and delivered to county registrars and counted in Georgia’s 2020 presidential election.
In other words, there is no chain of custody for 67.5 percent – an estimated 404,691 – of the estimated 600,000 absentee vote by mail ballots deposited in drop boxes and delivered to county registrars and counted in Georgia’s 2020 presidential election. — GeorgiaStarNews
This discrepancy accounts for FAR more than the difference of 12,000 votes that we are told eventually called the State for Joe Biden… and was precisely the sort of issue that Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz and others wanted to sort in a 10-day review of the evidence BEFORE officially certifying the election results — because if one or more states had discrepancies, like Georgia did, big enough to put one or more State’s results in doubt, the Constitution still provides a secondary means of certifying the election results.
Now when you hear Dems rage about the so-called ‘voter suppression’ that is happening in the Georgia Senate trying to plug these holes after the fact, you will have some proper context for what’s really happening.
Among its other measures, the bill restricts absentee voting to those who are over 65 years old, have a physical disability or are out of town. It would also require voters to produce a driver’s license or other form of ID to acquire an absentee ballot.
If passed by the state House of Representatives and signed by Gov. Brian Kemp, the measure would effectively undo a 2005 law then backed by state Republicans allowing no-excuse absentee voting in Georgia.
Senate President Butch Miller, a Republican, told CNN the legislation is meant to boost confidence in Georgia’s election system despite a lack of evidence of widespread fraud.
“I want every legal vote counted, timely and accurately, and I want better access for all voters,” said in an issued statement, claiming the state’s electorate “has lost confidence in the legitimacy of the system” after a 2020 presidential election in which a record 1.3 million people voted remotely — more than a quarter of the state’s total turnout of 5 million. — UPI
With 400 THOUSAND of 600 thousand counted ballots lacking legally-required chain-of-custody measures, we can’t possibly imagine what might have caused the public to lose confidence in elections . . . can you?
It takes courage to stand against the culture and media’s official narratives. Inspiring biographies of courageous people in history are fantastic fuel for that fight. Here’s a great example of just those sorts of biographies.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
