Why We May Want to Listen to Trump and Vote by Absentee Ballot This Year


Absentee Ballots

I was already thinking about doing this post, because after the SECOND or THIRD mailer from Trump, urging us to get our absentee ballots, I figured that MAYBE – just MAYBE – Trump sees something coming that WE DON’T.

Let’s rotate that sucker…..

I will be an absentee voter. We have a lot of absentee voters. It works, so we are in favor of absentee.

President Trump 7/30/20

Sure enough, if you go looking for images about Trump and absentee ballots, you can even find an image of one of his absentee ballot REQUEST FORMS, filled out – or at least the bottom of it.

SO – the first thing I’m going to do, is to suggest that – NO MATTER WHAT – I think it’s a good idea to get your absentee ballot request in NOW, but if not NOW, then AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Without leaning on ANY reason other than the knowledge that TRUMP TWEETS AGE WELL – and the THEORY that this also applies to these official mailers – which all say…..

PRESIDENT TRUMP NEEDS YOU TO ACT NOW.

President Trump is Counting on You.

TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION:

MAKE A PLAN TODAY…..

Well, that sure is interesting…..

SO – let me just say this. Without reading ANYTHING beyond this, I’d suggest making this moment right here a decision point. CAN YOU PULL OFF ABSENTEE? If so, then either COMMIT TO VOTING ABSENTEE, or HOLD THAT THOUGHT.

OK?

Now – let’s look at WHY this might be a good idea.


Why Things Are Going To Get Interesting

Phoenix posted this tonight, and I was very glad to see it. I had tried to say the same thing on Twitter, but Twitter suppresses me horribly.

My take was a bit different – I was pointing out that the ShadowGate people are RESPONDING right now to this changed perception by attacking people like Daughn with “demoralization bots”, and by getting her group BANNED on Facebook (she had to fight to get it reinstated). I see this as psychological warfare.

This is all about CHANGING our perceptions – about trying to psych us into believing that Trump does not “have it sewed up”.

It’s ALL perceptions – just like Q has told us over and over and over. If we think the majority are for Trump, and they really ARE for Trump, no cheat will hold.

SO – let me ask you – how do they change mass psychology?

WITH MORE EVENTS.

That is almost ALWAYS how it is done. There are almost no other ways to do it – particularly with roughly two months to the election.

Now – here is the deal. The other side has OTHER REASONS for more events.

The Comey Faction in FBI has always responded to big news negatives with EVENTS like “false flags”, MK killings, etc. And we KNOW that there will be more indictments shortly, and they WILL BE top people in the Comey FBI.

There is no way around this. I’m not being negative – we have materially WON the 2020 election. And yet, we must face the realities that we are up against.

And THIS NEXT THING is very important. It’s why I think things are accelerating.

This is the thought that was prompted when Phoenix said the following…..

Wolfie, we all are hearing that Antifa etc are being tracked, monitored… a few are suggesting that this will hopefully lead to evidence of Soros funding… what do you think?

I think you need to do like Trump says and get your request for an absentee ballot in NOW.

I’m going to answer your question with a post. You just made me realize something HUGE.

Looking forward to your post…

OK – my realization was not directly related to DOJ going after ANTIFA, but it’s very close. It stems from what Phoenix is saying. What I am seeing is that a lot of people who have been fighting are all correct, if we just analyze what happened correctly.

It is becoming clear that Brian Cates and Wictor/Carlos are right. DOJ and FBI – the “white hats” – are bringing in – as in ARRESTING – boatloads of Antifa, rioters, leftist radicals, etc. DOJ spox Kerry Kupec is tweeting out TONS of stuff on arrested ANTIFA types. DOJ is going after these folks in a HUGE way.

This is exactly what Thomas Wictor assured us WOULD HAPPEN. This is what Brian Cates said WOULD HAPPEN. The “but nothing’s happening” crowd are ALL WRONG. They’re either demoralization bots, or people who got suckered by these Eeyores.

Now you remember Kerry Kupec, the K-MAC of HONEY BADGER (Barr), is that lovely lady who Sundance was copying on all his stuff – and you will notice that Sidney Powell is retweeting Sundance’s stuff all over the place – so she knows SD is “right” as well.

But how can this be? How can the “Trump’s got this” and the “Trump doesn’t have this” group both be right?

Now, some of you may think I listen to Carlos and Brian and that crowd, so that means Sundance is “wrong”. And others may think I’ve been listening to Sundance lately, so WTH – why am I saying these guys that disagree with him lately are right? And note – that is a weird fight – totally ginned up by the other side, IMO. I think ShadowGate bots are behind that fight.

NO – what Phoenix got me to see is that they’re all right, but Sundance triggered something.

And Aubergine helped trigger it!

WHAT? Well, it’s complicated, but I will explain.

HERE WE GO.

Everything that I am seeing is telling me that Trump and Barr have the other side almost cornered on the chessboard, in terms of LEGITIMATE PLAY.

There is clearly a huge fight between SDNY and main Justice, which parallels the fight between the New York commies and Trump. The fight with SDNY is old, and goes back to Preening Preet Bharara, and the hiding of the Weiner laptop, Hillary exoneration, and so much more.

That fight between Barr and Berman was the fight really starting to show, and then SDNY goes after Bannon, and shortly after that, action is announced by Barr against New York on nursing homes.

So NY/Cuomo/deBlasio/SDNY vs. USA/Trump/Barr/mainDOJ is actually a THING.

NOW – I believe that SDNY was going to go after Bannon from word GO on his wall stuff. SDNY is activated in all possible ways for the continuous, ongoing COUP, and they only pulled the trigger on Bannon because they wanted to do it WHEN THEY DID IT.

Why did they do it then? I suspect multiple reasons.

ONE was to pre-empt Barr on nursing homes. They knew that was coming, so they timed things defensively. It’s all very SDNY.

However, I think the main reason SDNY busted Bannon was to find out what Sundance may have passed to him, to pass to President Trump.

Aubergine theorized recently (link welcome – I can’t find it) that Sundance passed his stuff to STEVE BANNON. I agreed with this, because I believe (1) Sundance’s main purpose was to get his expensively bound presentation to TRUMP, (2) Sundance’s passing of the material to journalists was used as cover for this, and (3) Bannon is the perfect individual to get the information to Trump quietly.

In my opinion, SD giving his stuff to “That Guy From Sandy Hook”, lead investigator William Aldenberg, was an afterthought when Aldenberg’s name dropped, in the course of talking to journalists and Bannon. It was likely suggested that Sundance give the information to Aldenberg, just to make sure they had it.

Now don’t think that Aubergine gave away the game – these SDNY traitors have had Bannon under surveillance for a long time. However, I think they are trying to cook up a story, and busting Bannon on a Chinese billionaire’s yacht is all part of that hopeful story.

Remember – the Rosenstein-Gauhar-Weissmann DOJ was going after ME during the first two years of the Trump administration, albeit they were just trying to get me shot in certain STORES where they might gain an edge in creating a likely story. They certainly weren’t going to catch me on some China guy’s yacht. But again – THESE are the “Event People”, and THEY are the ones who create manipulative stories, both to escape punishment for their crimes, and to alter human history, creating – literally – FAKE HISTORY.

In my opinion the main brains of the INFECTION in DOJ has now moved out of main DOJ, and is located in SDNY, where it needs less cover. Weissmann is clearly freaking out, and Sundance saying he has it all figured out, and having delivered “whatever” to all kinds of people. Yeah – the CONTAGION is SKEERED REAL GOOD by the thought that Sundance might know something they didn’t cover up well enough.

SO – what does all that mean?


Conclusions

I believe that we are in for more events. I believe that it will be 60 days of a fight to the finish. I believe that the left knows it cannot win, but it will try to:

  • demoralize us into thinking Biden has a chance
  • cheat like they have never cheated before
  • cast enormous doubt on the election
  • obfuscate and tarnish the results as much as possible
  • try to make the Trump second term seem as illegitimate as they can
  • try to get the UN and especially CHINA involved to bail them out
  • deploy new mass psychological events
  • deploy false flags and MK killings timed with FBI bad news and scrutiny
  • try to flip people at the last minute with all kinds of lies and hoaxes

BUT HERE IS THE BIG ONE.

I believe that the left will sabotage Election Day so badly, many will choose not to go to the polls.

Thus, to make sure that we get our votes in, we need to DO IT NOW.

I therefore suggest that you vote early, by absentee ballot, to remove all possible election interference tools from the left.

I predict that you will not regret it.

UPDATE

I just got a SECOND robo-call from Donald Trump, Jr., asking us to do ABSENTEE BALLOT.

I then checked my email and messages, and YES – yesterday I got an email and a text message from PRESIDENT TRUMP, asking us to “vote the safe way” – by absentee ballot.

So check your email, text messages and phone calls. Depending on your state, the GOP may be asking you to vote absentee!

      We can beat that with Absentee. And here is something very interesting. I’m not sure all states do this, but some post the names of absentee ballots that were received, so you can be sure your vote was counted.

      Be sure to use REAL, OFFICIAL FORMS that are acceptable to the state. Your state GOP will only send GOOD FORMS. You can TRUST the forms that the GOP sends you.

The last presidential election, we added observers from both parties to keep an eye on the volunteers to be sure everything was done right. No clue if it worked, but my mom ran into one of my brother’s friends, and his response to “well, hi” was “You don’t see me.”

          In some states, maybe all, it’s illegal for poll watchers to communicate with voters. They can get thrown out of the election for talking to voters.

          If they didn’t have that rule, campaigners (think Dim ward healers and their stooges) would sign up insincerely for poll watching duty, in order to hang around the polling place and try to influence voters within the boundary of the area where campaigning is forbidden. Or, worse yet, to count how people are voting, and/or to intimidate voters.

        My guess is D-Rat states with mass mail voting will shunt normal pol working to counting ballots, including on 3 November. This “innocent” change is to help ensure the vote is counted soonest. Not delay the count. It will also make lines to vote significantly longer on 3 November. Achieving the goal, discourage voters. Increasing the phony mail in vote count.

        1. If you request absentee voting, but then decide to vote in person, you are probably required to bring your blank absentee ballot to the polling place with you, so it can be canceled by an official before they allow you to vote at the voting machine.

          Rule necessary to prevent people voting twice.

          For anyone who requests absentee voting, make sure the ballot doesn’t get stolen out of your mail.

Also, I Think absentee is defferent from mail-in. I have one of these mail-in ballots. Should I request an absentee one? I am in a now democrat area (our county got flipped). If there were an event, wouldn’t it also keep dems from voting? I also think if we use these ballots, we sshould walk it over to our county building, rather than risking post office. I also heard from Dr. Pam Pauper that in Ohio, travel restrictions are being put in on October 29.

        1. Anyone who has an absentee ballot and/or mail-in ballot, but plans to vote in-person at the polling place or early-voting place, should be sure to bring the (blank) paper ballot to the polls.

          Poll lists the officials are reading at the polling place include a notation for each voter who requested absentee voting. So you have to surrender the mailed ballot in order to vote at the polling place.

          If you surrender it this way to vote in person, make sure the official marks your paper ballot as “CANCELLED” in front of you, so that it doesn’t get taken out of his envelope later, marked for the Feels Up/Heels Up ticket, and dropped in the absentee bin at the county office later.

          1. That’s not how it works here in my small county. I inquired a few months ago. I would inquire directly where you live what the procedure is, so you know exactly what you need to do.

            When we get an absentee ballot, it is bar-coded to our address and name. They only go to the person who requested them. IF that person were to go to the polls and vote, they have to show their voter ID or other ID, and sign the book. If they mailed their absentee ballot, the absentee ballot would be discarded as “provisional,” when it showed up.

            We have elections that are all “mail-in” sometimes, for lesser positions. In those elections, the above procedure is followed. You can’t vote twice, and the mail-in ballot is ONLY counted if you didn’t show up at the polls.

            For this election, the election office has told me in writing that they plan to check every signature on mail-in ballots against signatures on file, and if there is no signature, or it doesn’t match, they will reject the ballot until they can contact the voter. Here, at least, these people are SERIOUS about protecting voting integrity. I wish it was this way everywhere, but I know it isn’t.

      Remember a couple of days ago there was “ALL OF A SUDDEN”, a “new” type of CCP Virus that was detected in Kazakhstan?
      I posted about this situation and tied it to the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organisation) that was masterminded by the ChiComs in 2001 and to which almost every ChiCom border nation belongs, INCLUDING Kazakhstan (Russia, India, and Pakistan also belong).
      While it is true that Kazakhstan has mineral and other resources that Dictator Xi wants, like oil, uranium, lead, etc. — perhaps this “new” type of CCP Virus was “seeded” into Kazakhstan as a “test country” — so, if it “succeeds” there, Xi would then try to somehow “seed” the new virus (or perhaps a “resurgence” of the current CCP Virus which could be “activated” by nanotech embedded into it) in the United States.
      Just in time to create another “virus chaos” before the November election.
      Don’t think that’s possible?
      Then why was a Chinese national “researcher” who worked at the UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA busted within the last 24 hours trying to smuggle very sensitive BIO RESEARCH, which has potential military application uses, back to China — and was arrested at O’Hare Airport?

  2. The way absentee works is that you REQUEST BALLOTS – the request will have to obey certain rules, depending upon your state – and then you will receive ballots that can be sent back in. The sooner you send them back in, the less chance that your vote can be interfered with by the Communists Whoops I Mean Democrats.

    The GOP is – at least in my state – sending correct forms for the ballot requests. You want to get those back a.s.a.p. Then be sure to vote properly, obeying all the rules of proper return. On election day, you should be able to see if your ballot was received, although you may even be able to check earlier.

    1. I voted by Absentee Ballot once before, when I actually did have to be out of town.

      In my state, you have to have a couple of Witnesses sign your ballot who will attest that it is actually ‘you’ who is voting.

      As I recall…you have the option of taking your ballot in to the county election board office, in person, rather than mailing it back in.

      This process probably varies from state to state, though.

      This year, with all the crap that’s going on, it’s probably a good idea to Make A COPY of your ballot, before you return it.

          I feel more assured my vote will count, ON THAT DAY, than sending it to a depository of thousands of others in a stack that may or may not be counted by Election Day.
          OTOH, I have been to our Election Board Office on more than one occasion and I’m not assured I trust the employees there. Let’s simply say that probably 99% of them are Democrat, BLM supporters.
          I have gone through poll training and worked at the polls on Election Day in our area and feel very, very confident there is no fraud with the machines.
          We live in a semi-rural area so no fear of intimidation…our polling site is a church recreation hall.
          Our Governor is a Republican so I do not expect any last-minute tricks (unlike Michigan or other states.)
          I love the feeling of patriotism I get voting in person, standing in line among my neighbors and being grateful for the Democratic process we are privileged to have. I need that reality check!
          Besides, where else would I get my little “I Voted!” sticker!

          1. When I was an election official in November 2019, neither my mother-in-law nor my Democrat colleague’s mother-in-law received absentee ballots that they had requested. So they had to vote provisionally.

            My mother-in-law has long voted absentee, with no prior difficulty, so she knows the drill.

            Lots of voters complained about the same thing, and had to go through the tedious provisional paperwork. Then they weren’t sure whether their vote would count or not. If no ballot was sent, then presumably no ballot was returned, and their vote would be counted. If a ballot was sent, but stolen from the mail, then presumably someone voted with it fraudulently, and the County board might reject the provisional vote of the legitimate voter, to preclude double voting.

            Soros-funded county clerk. Possible diabolical intent in ignoring the absentee requests, then marking the people who filed them as absentee on the polling lists anyway. Possible Soros FUD campaign in 2019, to lay groundwork for 2020 chaos. (Fear-Uncertainty-Doubt)

        1. In a presidential, Steve, it matters because, on election night, the votes done by machine in the polling places are the main ones the unofficial results are based on that are broadcast on “news” shows by “journalists”.

          These numbers create expectations. We want those expectations to augur a resounding Trump victory, and a national sea change wave election for Republicans, especially congressional Republicans.

          Numbers like that on election night will confound Xi/Soros/bankster/Dim attempts at election night and post-election shenanigans.

          I think only some states/jurisdictions are set up to scan in absentee and/or mail-in ballots on election night. So, even if they eventually get counted, they won’t all get counted in time to affect the broadcast numbers on election night that Mockingbird-controlled “journalists” will use for their mass hysteria psy-op juju prior to the final results being known.

          This is all a setup to prepare for cheating a result, or casting aspersions in a FUD attack on a valid result, or post-election legal action, à la Gore 2000, by Biden’s 600 lawyers, or, assuming a Dim win in the House, throwing the election into the House, or kinetic civil war, or any of the above.

          It’s part of a continuum from push-polling/ Google-Goebels page ranking mind control/ Twitter-FB censorship/ the writings of fifth columnists for the NYT-WaPoo/ Mockingbird broadcasts/ anti-1A and anti-2A violence by Maoist insurrectionists such as BLM and anti-FA/ Biden’s hiring of 600 election lawyers/ whatever the ChiComs are threatening openly and behind the scenes/ etc.

    2. My question on absentee ballots is: I live in NY and the back of the envelope that you place the ballot in requires you to sign a statement declaring that the foregoing is a true statement and that if you make a false statement you shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. The foregoing statement includes verbiage stating that you cannot appear in person to vote.

      What would stop the state from collecting all of those absentee ballots for examination and stop them from being counted and charge the voter with a misdemeanor?

Lived in Suffolk, VA for awhile. Have read they toss lots of absentee ballots. Dunno the validity of that.

        This is what drives me to vote in person.

        THIS TIME I’LL HAVE AN ABSENTEE BALLOT ALSO. Of course will only vote once. If our shit for brains guvner Sisolak sabotages in person voting, the absentee will be used. If all goes as it should, vote in person and turn in the absentee vote for destruction.

          But yes – the early voting will work. If you can’t get there, you mail the ballot. But make sure having the absentee doesn’t mess things up for your in-person vote. Every state is different.

          1. My thoughts on early voting, having been a poll watcher in early voting and election day voting for years, an early voter myself, and an election official for many elections:

            When you reach the location, try to view the poll room as much as possible, from as many different angles as possible. If you can’t see inside it before you actually go in to vote, that’s a good thing.

            Anyhow, when you do get to the polling room, before you actually approach the clerk to sign in, look around the room carefully.

            Are there any hinky situations visible?

            Hinky situations include, but are not limited to:

            –Security cameras, or other cameras, placed where the way voters vote can be monitored.

            (If you ask about any you see, election workers may say “Oh, they’re not turned on.” or “They’re old cameras that don’t work.” or “They are zoomed out so far, you can’t read anything at that distance, anyway.” How would they know? If they asked the school’s, church’s, whatever, people about it, that’s what they were told, and they probably took the person’s word for it. Why should you take that unknown person’s word for it? And, in my experience, most election officials don’t even bother looking for cameras, or asking about them, when they set up their polling places.)

            –Is anyone who is not a voter, election official, poll watcher, official observer, etc., hanging around the polling place? (Most or all states limit access to the polling room.) Is anyone standing around or, worse yet, sitting, where he can view how voters vote? Is any campaigning going on in the polling room, or within a prohibited zone around it?

            –Are the machines laid out and the room organized so that you could vote without a lot of people bustling around close by and looking over your shoulder? Are there any windows of offices, conference rooms, doors, etc. right behind where you would be when voting, so that someone hidden there, or his hidden camera, could view how you vote? Any clusters of electronic equipment, or other places where someone could have stashed a small camera, over the voter’s shoulder?

            –Is the room laid out in such a complicated way, going around corners or whatever, that a poll watcher, or official who belongs to the opposite party from the top official in the room, would not be able to see what is going on in the whole room? If the polling place counts as just one voting location, with one set of officials and poll watchers, etc., is it laid out in separate rooms, so that someone interested in election integrity would only be able to keep a wary eye on one room at a time?

            If any hinky situation is visible, I would address it with the top officials there. If the situation was not resolved, I would get the voter complaint hotline number, or website, or form, and complain immediately. If the situation was egregious enough, I would file the complaint regardless of how the officials on the spot responded.

            In any case, I would go to another location, if any were available, to cast my vote.

            One of the hinkiest situations of all, and you might not be in a position to discern this one if you are just a voter, rather than a poll watcher or official, is if the top two people in the room are supposed, by design, to be of opposite parties, but inevitably stand shoulder-to-shoulder in defense of irregularity or illegality whenever a voter or poll watcher points it out.

  3. POTUS kept repeating “10 days” at the latest rally. /qresearch/ believes he’s warning of a false flag because there are Q posts with the term “10 days” in them that refer to false flags. September and October are false flag season, the Democrats are currently losing the narrative, and this year has been nuts. Maintain situational awareness, and be extra alert on 9/1, 9/10, 9/11, and 9/21.

      1. Good question!

        I found this quote buried on the USPS site:

        “Election officials should use First-Class Mail service for Election Mail. Using USPS Marketing Mail service will result in slower delivery times and may increase the risk that voters will not receive their ballots in time to return them by mail. Voters can return their ballots using First-Class Mail or a higher level of service.

        Sure looks like you can use certified mail to me.

        If you wanted to ask questions of your specific USPS election mail coordinator, you could do the following:

    1. The glorious music at the end, sung by opera great, Christopher Macchio, was a shock, surprise, a mystery.

      First the aria – Nessun Dorma – aria from the final act of Giacomo Puccini’s opera Turandot – sung by the protagonist on a quest to win a Princess (America) ends with:

      Vanish, o night!
      Fade, you stars!
      Fade, you stars!
      At dawn, I will win!
      I will win! I will win!

      and then – Ave Maria! The virgin, Mary, is the metaphor for the Church – this song was a very important statement that President Trump will continue to stand with and defend the Church and Christianity from the leftist/communists.

      Then came America the Beautiful which is a prayer that GOD will “crown Thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea.”

      Finally, God Bless America.

      Christopher Macchio was simply splendid!!!!

      Note – the US Flags lining the front of the White House were custom flags made of light reflective slipper satin! In this season of anthem kneeling and flag burning by Democrat street thugs, our President meant these flags to shine brightly and be the theme for the evening and for his Campaign! Remember – the Campaign bought these flags particularly for the use of the Campaign.

      1. We covered a lot of this in yesterday’s open thread sometime in early afternoon, so it’s buried a bit.

        There’s so many shades to Nessum Dorma, it’s not even funny. First, the opera takes place in CHINA. It’s about a princess trying to figure out the name of the prince, a stranger, who she does not want to marry, but has made a deal that she will if she can’t figure out who he is by dawn. It’s used a lot in movies where revenge or rectification is the scene.

        The Ave Maria…that art song (it was not written as a sacred piece, but was co-opted and the Latin shoehorned into it), the ORIGINAL words are from a German translation of the Lady of the Lake by Sir Walter Scot. The overall epic poem itself offers few clues, but Gail added that the Lady of the Lake in the Arthur story gives him the power to pull Excalibur from the stone. That can’t be a coincidence.

        IMO, there were multiple layers of trolling going on Thursday night. The red shoes that Melania was wearing, for example, just about everyone jumped on the red shoe club bandwagon, BUT the original meaning of the red shoes is walking in the blood of martyrs. That’s what’s behind the pope wearing red shoes, and, I now believe, why Caroline & JFK Jr. were wearing them at their father’s funeral. That could well have been the motivation.

        We’re looking at Shakespearean level of symbolism trolling. It really looks like the surface is never the complete answer.

  10. Well Wolfmoon, this explains a lot to me. I have been considering asking here why others think Sundance has just completely DROPPED everything he was on about for weeks, but I guess now I know. His package was “delivered.” Mission accomplished.

    I am very conflicted about my comment about Bannon. Maybe I should know better than to name names, unless they are bad guys. I may have underestimated how important what we say and don’t say here actually is. In the future, my speculation will have to be more circumspect. Loose lips sink ships.

    These bastards can’t cover all their tracks, no matter how hard they try, but their destroying lives in the process of trying has got to be stopped, cold. We don’t live in a police state, and if we have to have a revolution to ensure that, so be it.

    1. Like I said, I don’t think you caused it, but I think we were all a symptom of what was going on – the dissemination of Sundance’s perspective on the extent of infiltration and subversion of DOJ. You simply gave us all advance warning on where that might very likely have been directed, and we caught up to the fight.

      SDNY has been spying on Bannon since likely BEFORE he got involved with the wall stuff. When April Ryan was trying to get information on Bannon’s contact with Trump, who was she helping? I thought China, but SDNY makes even more sense – THE TRAITORS WITHIN.

      You think SDNY was involved with trying to set up the Trump Tower server frame job? I do.

      Once Bannon was hooked up with that org, and MONEY was involved, SDNY had an “IN” to retrospectively justify their previous surveillance of Bannon. JUST LIKE TRUMP. JUST LIKE FISAGATE. I think they were already observing Bannon when Sundance started distributing his stuff.

      Treat SDNY as the strong right arm of the infection in DOJ. That’s my approach.

      I am sure Trump got Sundance’s information, by the way. Weissmann going off the rails is all the proof I need.

      No matter what happened, Sundance’s stuff was at RISK of getting to Trump. There was a RISK of *IDEAS* or *INFORMATION* getting to Trump through Bannon, or somebody else.

      What matters to SDNY would be the content of the information. They have to know what Trump knows to know how to engage in further deceptions.

      Exciting times. Don’t hold back. FIGHT FORWARD. I think we got more out of you posting your suspicions than not posting them.

Until the snakes there are cleaned out, I don’t know how any prosecution of coup-plotters or Deep Staters run through SDNY would be successful. And Bannon can’t possibly get fair treatment, either.

        I think the “We Build The Wall” prosecution is a case of “show my the man and I’ll show you the crime.” I guess we’ll see what happens there if they manage to get a fair trial. Hopefully Trump has a BIG house cleaning after the election.

  11. Some of you may have seen my freak-out the other day because my county decided on mail-in voting. Special thanks to FG&C for his suggestion to read some Wictor, which helped.

    I then wrote the following email to all of my county commissioners:

    “As a citizen of the United States, my vote is my most treasured right. I have voted in every Presidential, and most local elections in my adult life.

    I treasure my ability to go to the polls, fill out my ballot, and be ASSURED that my vote will be properly accounted for and COUNTED.

    COVID-19 is NOT AN EXCUSE to violate this most sacred of citizen rights!

    If older poll workers can’t work the polls, younger ones like me (well, ok, I’m 55, but I’m damned healthy) can replace them. We have months for training if necessary. I myself am VERY willing to do it.

    I implore you to resist allowing a 99.6% SURVIVABLE illness to take away our most important right as a citizen, to make our voices heard in our election process.”

    This was the response I got from the head Commissioner:

    “First of all, we are in agreement with every word you’ve written, here. The only clarification I would make, at this point, is that going mail in now will be much less about Covid-19, and more about ensuring that we have a fair election due to the Governor’s actions leaving it to the counties, and other associated factors.

    I and many others believe that this action may have been carefully calculated in the belief that conservative, smaller counties would insist on polled elections, and counting on the larger counties choosing mail in. This could very possibly affect voter turnout here, in an election year unlike any other we’ve known. I, for one, have seen enough evidence to convince me that this could be the case.

    Training election judges is another topic which any of us will be happy to talk to you about in detail, but suffice to say that the best practice for this is running new people through an actual election. That is not possible right now. The ramifications of the smallest mistake are bigger than the perceived danger of a mail in ballot election in Montana, where we have solid safeguards in place, or especially Ravalli County where we have a personal relationship with our post office. All of that said, you will still have the option to deliver your ballot directly to a secure ballot box in the presence of election staff.

    I can assure you that we are prepared to do what is necessary, to ensure that this year’s election does not become the slippery slope on which we forever lose our ability to vote in person. For now, though, I am convinced that we must do all we can to make sure our voice is heard and our vote is correctly counted, and that as repugnant as a mail in ballot may be, it is our best choice For this election.

    Finally, these decisions are more than difficult for us and your elections administrator, but we were elected to make them. Nothing is as easy as it seems today. I am asking not for your trust, but that you research for yourself, the situation we find ourselves in, and I believe you will come to the same conclusion I have. Please feel free to call me at 406-375-6501 anytime to discuss this further, if you wish, and thank you for your email.”

    The Commissioner had cc’d the Election Supervisor in his email to me. She ALSO emailed me:

    “I understand your concerns and I wish it as easy as just taking a training, but there is more to it than that. We are struggling with locations as well. People have volunteered their homes but there is more that goes into selecting polling places too. Unfortunately due to laws and lawsuits, elections have become so complicated. I know everyone disagrees about the virus but it is certain that planning big public events is nearly impossible right now.

    We do have very strong absentee and mail ballot laws and procedures in Montana. We are constantly cleaning our voter rolls but the big concern I heard was the concern regarding voters who are not on the absentee list who have moved. To address that concern, we just ran that list through the National Change of Address System and we are sending update forms to anyone who was on it. Ballot are not forwardable so we will get undeliverable ballots back and we will reach out to those voters. For those who want in person options, we will be open here at the county administration building the month before the election if voters want to vote in person, drop their ballot off or get a replacement ballot. We will also have drop sites throughout the county on election day so you can drop your ballot in person. All of this will be staffed by my office staff or election workers who normally work at the polls. We will check each and every ballot signature against the voter’s registration and if there is no signature or the signature does not match the voter’s record, the ballot will be rejected until we can contact the voter.

    As Chris said, we are prepared to do whatever we can to ensure the integrity of this election. That is always my main concern with any election that I run. If you have any questions as we work through the process, please do not hesitate to call, email, or stop by my office. Anything I do is open to the public and I know that once people see how the process works, they have more confidence in it.

    Thank you for your email.”

    I called the local election office and found out that they are only mailing ballots to registered voters, not a mass mailing. We do that in smaller elections here all the time, just not the big ones like the Presidential election.

    I got another email from the Commissioner asking if, since his original email was only to me, if I minded if he copied and pasted HIS OWN WORDS into a letter to the editor of the newspaper so he could get the word out! How polite! I of course said yes, and told him he could quote ME if he wanted.

    Needless to say, I feel much better at this point about our voting here. This is how it should be done!

      POTUS is 100% insulated – any discussion suggesting he’s even a target is false.
      Follow Huma tomorrow.
      POTUS will not be addressing nation on any of these issues as people begin to be indicted and must remain neutral for pure optical reasons. To suggest this is the plan is false and should be common sense.
      Focus on Military Intelligence/ State Secrets and why might that be used vs any three letter agency
      What SC decision opened the door for a sitting President to activate – what must be showed?
      Why is POTUS surrounded by generals ^^
      Again, there are a lot more good people than bad so have faith. This was a hostile takeover from an evil corrupt network of players (not just Democrats).
      Don’t fool yourself into thinking Obama, Soros, Roth’s, Clinton’s etc have more power present day than POTUS.
      Follow the money, it’s the key.
      What is Pelosi’s net worth by way of one example. Why coincidentally is her memory apparently going?
      Cover for possible future indictment to plead what?
      What if John M never had surgery and that was a cover for a future out if needed against prosecution?
      Why did Soros transfer his bulk public funds to a NP? Note this doesn’t include massive slush funds that are pulled by several high ups.
      Why did Soros’ son have several meetings with Canadian PM and how is that related to Clinton’s?
      Why is MS13 a priority?
      Could people pay such gangs to kill opponents and why / how to insulate against exposure?

    1. Yes! Once you request that absentee ballot and they HONOR THE REQUEST, then you are obligated by whatever your state’s rules are for somebody with an absentee ballot issued. That MAY mean that a REAL BALLOT from you becomes automatically provisional (must be investigated), to prevent double-voting.

      It is all these RULES about absentee that protects the security and integrity of the process.

Didn’t POTUS tell us he has seen the information and it’s glorious? The DIMs KNOW IT TOO. They gave up, decided to run wth the very bottom of the barrel, because they knew they would lose the election, that they had lost before they even started. Because they know anyone on a list of “those who might beat Donald Trump” is a criminal… a criminal who has a sealed indictment just waiting to be unsealed. The DIMs’ only recourse is ‘scorched earth’ …………………..

    1. P.S. Suggest a review of the election of 1864… mail-in ballots were suggested then too. And Lincoln had to worry about optics and the conflict, the division of a country at war.

    2. Yes! That’s it. They ARE running scorched earth. The Dem candidates dropped out quickly and not because Biden was such a strong candidate. They’ve already moved on and are working on the 2024 election.

      1. I can’t walk there, unless I want to spend several hours at it, but there are multiple viable routes to where I would be voting.

        They’d basically have to swarm it directly. It’d take a LOT of orcs to block all the routes to all the voting places.

    1. I know Deep State is not the brightest bulb in the box…

      but it is STUPID to think this kind of trick is only an obstacle to Trump Supporters… DIMs don’t drive?

  15. OK – I decided that there must have been a reason I was SURE Trump was pushing absentee.

    In addition to the 3+ mailers I’ve gotten, I just got a SECOND phone call message today from Donald Trump, Jr., urging absentee voting – one was during the convention, one AFTER. I also got an EMAIL and a TEXT MESSAGE yesterday, both nominally from PDJT, urging Absentee as the “safe way” to vote.

    This may not be happening everywhere, or for everybody, so YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY. But if you’ve been getting messages and emails on it, then definitely consider it!

    1. The only thing I’ve gotten is fundraising solicitation.

      Just curious, could the absentee push be in the battleground states? For presidential elections, mine isn’t one. But, on election night, they always hold back one or two precincts in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin and a few others for the cliff hanger. (And to figure out how many votes to manufacture.) I’m wondering if the administration is trying to get ahead of the election night shenanigans with this effort. I mean, if they’re only counted if needed….

      Something is odd that’s for sure.

      1. Good theory. I’m thinking they’re pushing absentee in battleground or “possible unexpected battleground” states. The latter would be “red states that people get nervous about”. Smart to lock those in, too. The key to all of them is having a *SOLID* absentee system that is as or more trustworthy than walk-in. If it’s as bad as mail-in, in terms of risks of LOSS of R votes, or the counting is going to be unreliable vs. in-person, then maybe better to stick with regular.

  16. This is what the county website has. I’m eligible for mail-in, but not absentee. I’m going to the polls.

    The state of Missouri allows for absentee voting if you are:

    Absent from St. Louis County on Election Day;
    Incapacitated or confined due to sickness or disability, including caring for a person who is incapacitated or confined due to sickness or disability;
    Restricted by religious belief or practice;
    Employed as an election authority;
    Incarcerated, although all necessary qualifications for voting have been retained;
    A member of the U.S. armed forces in active service, or dependent, or spouse;
    A civilian employee of the U.S. government working outside the United States;
    A registered voter in the state of Missouri, and has moved to St. Louis County after the 4th Wednesday prior to an election;
    A former resident of Missouri and is authorized to vote for federal offices by federal law;
    A participant in the Missouri Safe at Home program (under sections 589.660 to 589.681.)
    (2020 only) Has contracted coronavirus or is at-risk due to any of the following: * Is age 65 or older * Lives in a long term care facility * Has chronic lung disease/asthma * Has a serious heart condition * Is immunocompromised * Has diabetes * Has chronic kidney disease and are undergoing dialysis * Has liver disease
    (2020 only) The state of Missouri allows for Mail-In voting for all registered voters.

    1. Thanks! Yes, I’ll bet that we’ve got a similar COVID clause, or even a more general waiver, and THAT is why they can push absentee for everybody. If our COVID thinking is “everybody is at risk”, then universal absentee is the answer.

  17. Just vote. Does not matter how. Those that count the votes determine the winner. So if your County Clerk and company are crooked there ain’t a whole lot you can do. Their problem is this year they will have to cheat so much it will be blatantly obvious that they did.

      1. EVERYONE (and anyone else you can convince) VOTE!
        Even in Deep red states!
        “They” can NOT “Cheat” when EVERYONE votes.
        150% of the population voted?

        They can only cheat when people DON’T VOTE.

  18. Invariably I almost always make a mistake filling out a form which causes me to have to scratch something out and write over or beside it. I’d prefer not to take it to chance thinking any mistake made would not disqualify my vote so add that to reasons of why I’d vote in person.

    Another concern I’ve not seen mentioned here is the if many people did it, were back to wondering if the mail system could handle it. POTUS and others have made the argument that the postal service could not likely not handle such a surge. So to make sure people who need to file absentee, I’d not want to clutter the system so that their votes get counted.

    I will attempt to vote on the final day as that is normally thought of as a way to keep Dems unaware of the actual number of votes to cheat by, however I will monitor voting conditions prior and make the decision closer in knowing the last day of early voting is on a Friday (Oct 30th) before election day on Tues (Nov 3rd) .

  19. One thought that just entered my mind about absentee voting.
    Many part-time winter residents (Snowbirds) of Florida, change their “official” domicile as soon as they legally can for the benefit of tax purposes. One way to prove your legal resident status is by voting there.
    As a result, especially in a Presidential election, there are huge numbers that go to their winter home, to vote, play a little golf, and then return north until after the holidays. I witnessed it many times.
    Now, with the restrictions (especially NY…unless you happen to be a famous singer!) people might think twice about making that trip…commercial air lines, 14 day quarantine when you return, etc. etc.
    In that case, a compelling reason to request an absentee ballot. I think Gov C. would not hesitate to throw as many obstacles as he could to impede voting, including making it difficult for residents to leave and return. Same with most of those states with a population that winters in the sun.

    1. In the past, Dims have benefited mightily in making Florida a swing state from the ilicit, but normally unpunished, habit of many Dims voting at both NY and FL residences, in important elections.

      So Nipplepins might not want to screw up a good thing by making it too hard for people to travel during election season.

  20. I don’t trust mail in. Behind my momma’s back, I saved up 20 $1 bills as a little kid to order by mail the Beatles album I saw advertised on a TV commercial. You all know what didn’t happen. 😭 I’m going in person. Here in TX we have early voting. So I think up to 2wks prior to election day you can go to another place and vote. The line is generally longer because multiple polling places are combined to one, but that’s ok. Surely they won’t have mobs blocking TX polls for 2 weeks. It’s a BIG state. Voting is essential, I don’t think they can get away w/lockdowns. Plus I don’t see Gov Abbott allowing that. If they do spike the virus, I’ll just go on Nov 3, shorter line, shorter mask time. The only catch I see is that early is at the courthouse, whereas Nov 3 is at a school. There could be an issue w/schools, but we should know location changes ahead of time.

  21. Absentee ballots – by all means in swing and blue states. Takes ballot harvesting out of play using them and in-person voting. Make it easier for poll watchers and feds to spot fraud.

    Am I the only one that sees Bannon as a possible sting operation like Flynn? They get to the opportunity to gut the SDNY with him.

  22. Infiltration, rather than invasion.

    There’s potential for far more chaos to be stirred up around the November 3rd election than with just Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Chinese and Muslims with military training already in America? U.N. ‘peacekeepers’? Iranian sleeper cells?

    How much of the military grade weaponry that the Obama Administration (mainly through DHS) stockpiled has been accounted for? At one point back in 2013 the DHS had already purchased and retrofitted 2,717 mine-resistant armored protection (MRAP) vehicles. Where are they now?

  23. Confessions of a voter fraud: I was a master at fixing mail-in ballots

    Confessions of a voter fraud: I was a master at fixing mail-in ballots

    Post 10465874 5
    >>10465811

    A top Democratic operative says voter fraud, especially with mail-in ballots, is no myth. And he knows this because he’s been doing it, on a grand scale, for decades.

    Mail-in ballots have become the latest flashpoint in the 2020 elections. While President Trump and the GOP warn of widespread manipulation of the absentee vote that will swell with COVID polling restrictions, many Democrats and their media allies have dismissed such concerns as unfounded.

    But the political insider, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he fears prosecution, said fraud is more the rule than the exception. His dirty work has taken him through the weeds of municipal and federal elections in Paterson, Atlantic City, Camden, Newark, Hoboken and Hudson County and his fingerprints can be found in local legislative, mayoral and congressional races across the Garden State. Some of the biggest names and highest office holders in New Jersey have benefited from his tricks, according to campaign records The Post reviewed.

    “An election that is swayed by 500 votes, 1,000 votes — it can make a difference,” the tipster said. “It could be enough to flip states.”

    The whisteblower — whose identity, rap sheet and long history working as a consultant to various campaigns were confirmed by The Post — says he not only changed ballots himself over the years, but led teams of fraudsters and mentored at least 20 operatives in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania — a critical 2020 swing state.

    “There is no race in New Jersey — form City Council to United States Senate — that we haven’t worked on,” the tipster said. “I worked on a fire commissioner’s race in Burlington County. The smaller the race the easier it is to do.”

    A Bernie Sanders die-hard with no horse in the presidential race, he said he felt compelled to come forward in the hope that states would act now to fix the glaring security problems present in mail-in ballots.

    “This is a real thing,” he said. “And there is going to be a f–king war coming November 3rd over this stuff … If they knew how the sausage was made, they could fix it.”

    The best targets were registered voters who routinely skip presidential or municipal elections — information which is publicly available.

    “You fill out these index cards with that person’s name and district and you go around the city and say, ‘You’re going to be him, you’re going to be him,” the insider said of how he dispatched his teams of dirty-tricksters.

    At the polling place, the fake voter would sign in, “get on line and … vote,” the insider said. The imposters would simply recreate the signature that already appears in the voter roll as best they could. In the rare instance that a real voter had already signed in and cast a ballot, the impersonator would just chalk it up to an innocent mistake and bolt.

    The tipster said New Jersey homeless shelters offered a nearly inexhaustible pool of reliable — buyable — voters.

    “They get to register where they live in and they go to the polls and vote,” he said, laughing at the roughly $174 per vote Mike Bloomberg spent to win his third mayoral term. He said he could have delivered the same result at a 70-percent discount — like when Frank “Pupie” Raia, a real estate developer and Hoboken nabob, was convicted last year on federal charges for paying low-income residents 50 bucks a pop to vote how he wanted during a 2013 municipal election.

    Organizationally, the tipster said his voter-fraud schemes in the Garden State and elsewhere resembled Mafia organizations, with a boss (usually the campaign manager) handing off the day-to-day managing of the mob soldiers to the underboss (him). The actual candidate was usually kept in the dark deliberately so they could maintain “plausible deniability.”

    With mail-in ballots, partisans from both parties hash out and count ballots at the local board of elections — debating which ballots make the cut and which need to be thrown out because of irregularities.

    The insider said any ballots offered up by him or his operation would come with a bent corner along the voter certificate — which contains the voter signature — so Democratic Board of Election counters would know the fix was in and not to object.

    “It doesn’t stay bent, but you can tell it’s been bent,” the tipster said. “Until the [certificate] is approved, the ballot doesn’t matter. They don’t get to see the ballot unless they approve the [certificate.]”

    “I invented bending corners,” the insider boasted, saying once the fixed ballots were mixed in with the normal ones, the bed was made. “Once a ballot is opened, it’s an anonymous ballot.”
