Forget what Time Magazine admitted about a ‘fortified’ election, or those suppressed news stories about Hunter Biden that would have changed enough minds to flip the election. Nobody is allowed to question election integrity.
The second you question election integrity, you automatically hate America, Motherhood, and Apple Pie. Unless of course your name is Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, Stacey Abrams… ar pretty much anyone else with a (D) after their name and an ax to grind.
When voting failures were exposed in Broward County Florida, that didn’t ‘undermine democracy’, it gave political leaders much-needed insight into what changes needed to be made to make the whole process run smoothly. As far as proof-of-concept goes, Florida came through November 2020 without any serious objections that the process didn’t work properly.
And in 2020, there were a lot of different kinds of irregularities working together. Election rule changes instituted by people or groups with no lawful power to change them is a big one.
Serious chain-of-custody and legitimacy issues that the people making use of mail-in ballots were legally qualified to vote, only voted in their own name, and did not vote a second (or third) time elswehere.
Zuckerberg used his own money to directly fund election officials. For context, had he spent just less than $100M more, he would have dumped half a BILLION dollars into swaying the elections OFFICIALS in Democrat strongholds of Battleground states with ‘strings-attached’ money. How is that any different than, say, the Russian Government buying off the drug doping judges at the Olympics so that nobody will notice their athletes cheating?
An elections official from one of those same battleground states is facing criminal charges… including a conspiracy charge. As allegations against her only extend to 2019 they do not have any bearing on 2020 results… but they do show a clear blueprint of just how easily a corrupt and motivated party could game the system for political or financial gain.
Since the 2020 presidential election, Democrats have demonized Republicans who raise concerns about election integrity. But a new report Wednesday said a staffer of one Philadelphia politician had been engaging in voter fraud as far back as 2015.
According to Philadelphia magazine, Marie Beren, 67, faces federal charges for participating in a voter fraud scheme from 2015-2019. The outlet said Beren faces four charges related to voter fraud, one of which is conspiracy.
…Prosecutors said Beren and an unidentified “consultant” were involved in the voter fraud conspiracy. The complaint alleges the consultant “exercised influence and control in Philadelphia’s 39th Ward by distributing cash payments and supporting family, friends and allies for elective office in the 39th Ward, and installing Ward Leaders, Judges of Elections, and Democratic State Committee.”
Prosecutors said that around 1984, this consultant “installed” Beren to the committee for the Democratic Party in the 39th Ward of Philadelphia. In 1988, the consultant helped Beren become the judge of elections for the second district in the 39th Ward. –IJR
If she began her work in elections way back in the Reagan years, why are there only charges for the period of ’15-’21? That might be because in 2015, after 27 years, her role changed. She hand-picked a replacement and stepped down to the role of ‘poll-watcher’.
What she’s charged with involves her connection with the hand-picked replacement. We leave it to our readers to draw their own conclusions as to whether criminal malfeasance was a more recent addition to the role, or whether she just coached someone else about what tricks she herself had used all along to game the system.
On Election Day, the consultant would drive Beren to the polling place and tell her how to cast fraudulent votes. She then allegedly engaged in multiple illegal activities such as advising in-person voters to support a certain candidate, casting votes herself in other people’s names and encouraging voters to cast additional votes for family members who were not present.
At the end of the day, prosecutors said Beren and other unnamed workers would add names to the voting book of people who never came to the polling place. They allegedly did this to falsely match the number of fake votes cast.
While the alleged crimes occurred in the city of Philadelphia, the effects could potentially have been felt nationwide. Prosecutors said the fraud occurred “at every level of government, from municipal to state to federal,” according to Philadelphia. — IJR
This is exactly the kind of smoking gun we need. Not so much so we can relitigate the results of elections past whose results won’t be overturned anyway, but to protect the future franchise of every citizens whose vote is invalidated by ballots that are fraudulently cast.
Republicans have campaigned on ‘easy to vote, hard to cheat’. On the other end of the spectrum, Democrats have been campaigning for ballots with the most lax safeguards possible. They fight even court-ordered purges of the voter rolls because a large resevoir of potential ‘bonus’ voters that could quite easily be ‘added to the voting book’ at the end of the day is suddenly beyond their reach.
With all kinds of weird stuff happening in the very battleground states that mattered most, with voter count numbers changing in the middle of the night, and elections officers in those same states charged with conspiracy… is it any wonder that Republicans are cynical, and would like to see more safeguards surrounding our elections?
We’ll need to wise up and send out an army of poll watchers to keep tabs on future elections… just to be sure.
