Officer Barrelroll: Y'all clearly don't follow the internet the way Trump does!

Big things are happening! Major fraud found! Rigged election proof coming out in all states!


....in two weeks??

They'll never confirm the state's results. Never. Their only two possible results are 1) "it was fraudulent!" or 2) "we cannot confirm the accuracy of the state's results."

Most likely the 2nd, because it casts vague, undisprovable doubt while keeping them out of a legal firestorm.

The people who believe any of this are looking for confirmation bias. They take the loss personally and are the types who blame the team when they rush in and get killed in the first minute.

Of course she just literally got booed off the stage days ago at a Trump rally for not likcing his boots hard enough


Jesus Tapdancing Christ on a cracker this is one STUPID God damned piece of garbage.

Our election system is under constant assault by the left, and I won't support bills that fail to strengthen our election system.

After ALL OF THIS she's blaming... "the left" for voter... something?

"Oh there's SOMETHING there. I can't see it and there's no evidence, BUT IT'S THERE AND THOSE SNEAKY BL... LIBERALS AREN'T GONNA GET AWAY WITH IT!"

Her being booed off stage by people she's trying SO HARD TO SUCK UP TO is just amazing.

The fundraising stunt is so that Trump can groom his little army with ready made campaign funds.  These guys should really be unionized in Actors Equity Association -- as professionals in obstruction theater.

They are mad because they know we outnumber them, we just have a hard time getting turnout. Now that Dems are playing their book but without breaking the laws, they mad.

I hope we give them reason to stay mad.

"I wanted to review our election processes and see what, if anything, could be improved,"

Its called the Arizona Elections Commission  -- and it's headed up by the Arizona Secretary of State. And I'm pretty sure that the state senator, quoted here, has their phone number.

Disingenuous c***

Cyber Ninjas didn't find a goddamned thing and that's what they'll report.

See, getting a bunch of attention from hopeful insurrectionists and playing anti-democratic propaganda games while glibly sticking your dick in the receipt paper feed slot in Arizona's voting machines is lots of fun right up until you get charged with election tampering by the DOJ. Then, at night, when enjoying a cup of warm milk and the new Netflix 'Hitler In 3D" six part docu-series, you really start thinking about going to prison. I mean reallythinking about it. That's when you begin looking for ways to possibly lessen the blow, like turning in the people who helped plan and fund this stunt.

Hyperbolic Hyperbole: "Just say it was corrupt, we'll take care of the rest"

I have to admit, I remain convinced that the reason republicans are SO sure the election was tainted is because they themselves tainted it, and figure the only way they could cheat that hard and still lose is if they were out-cheated.


Oh it's definitely this. That's why trump constantly talks about how he got more votes than any other sitting president in history and so many more than in 2016. He was worried about losing, so he cheated, but being trump he needed it to be BIG so he could also brag. It was supposed to be his mandate (probably to stay in office until he died). That's why he insists it was STOLEN from him. Has he even said Dems "cheated"? I'm pretty sure he only says the election was "stolen" which to me is telling
 
2021-08-01 11:51:32 AM  
So, how many more votes did Biden pick up?

He's closing in on 5,000 Electoral votes.

bighairyguy: And they ruined the actual voting machines for future elections. Millions of dollars to replace them. Time to sue everyone involved for those costs. Time to bankrupt some people. They've already tied it all to Trump and his people. Take a swing at that $80 million pile of cash they're sitting on.

I suspect that that was part of the goal. I still think that ES&S, where the corpse of Diebold ("proud to deliver Ohio's electoral votes to the [then-]President [GWB]") wound up, is in this up to their ears if not behind much of it. Slime their main competitor (Dominion) using proxies such as Karen the Kraken, Myke Pilendell, et al to hide their own involvement, do "audits" that discredit Dominion and ruin their machines, requiring replacements that, "Well, since the fraudit did cast some doubt on those Dominion machines, we need to find another company to buy the replacements from ― oh, lookie here, ES&S!" I remember reading that ES&S machines seem to consistently favor Republicans at about 5% above both pre-election and exit polling, while elections using other machines or no machines do not.

It's also why they're making such a stink over faux-fraud.

Because when the truth comes knocking, just like the 1/6 thing, it's going to be endless cries of "oh you didn't let us investigate YOU!" or "we found nothing on you so there's obviously nothing on us!" or some other stupid bullshiat.

We already knew that.


No. Where they demand the same audit before the results are certified next time, but only if the Democrats win.

The whole point here was to set some goalposts when they don't matter to demand to use them when they do.

Todorojo: Cyber Ninjas didn't find a goddamned thing and that's what they'll report.


I mean they already tried to spread a lie that 70000 mail in ballots had "no evidence they were ever sent." I.e., they appeared out of nowhere and couldn't be linked to any voters.

IF they report they didn't find anything, it will ONLY be because of the rigid scrutiny from an uncharacteristically diligent mainstream media actually doing its job for once, calling stupidly obvious Republican lies "Republican lies."

It takes someone as dumb as the average conservative to think that an audit conducted by a firm called "Cyber Ninjas" could be taken seriously the first place.
 
2021-08-01 12:17:20 PM  
But think about it, they could have found something, and that really makes you question if we can trust the so-called "election" process at all.

The report will say 1 of three things:

1) No fraud, and will quitely be dropped

2) No fraud, but will say they found suspicous stuff so there is still fraud.

3) Vague nonsense that if you look at it prove no fraud but the rubes will see it saying there is fraud, thus contenuing the grift.

it will be 3

Perhaps they were prevented from finding incontrovertible evidence of the rigging, but what they did find were many things that raise questions about what really happened. I believe it was Ronald Reagan who said "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence" and also "Trust, but verify".

I don't have a fancy degree in computers, but I have been using AOL and Microsoft Windows for over 30 years so I am pretty much an expert. What I've heard about that election sounds very suspicious to me because I understand how these things work. You kids just know how to post selfies to the Instagam and such as.

The State of Arizona is 100% sure Biden won. It's the Republican hacks and their conspiracy nut brethren who are deliberately attempting to cast a dark cloud over the whole process knowing full well they have jack shiat.

It's a partisan dog and pony show created to inject even more froth into their dumbass voter base. The intention was never to run a legitimate audit. The state of Arizona already ran an audit in February which found nothing.

> The turmoil casts even more doubt on the conclusions of what backers describe as a "forensic audit" but what experts and critics say is a deeply flawed, partisan process.

Why don't they call it a "WITCH HUNT"? I guess Trump has robbed that phrase of meaning.

The whole "forensic audit" reminds me of witch hunters who would examine the body of an accused witch looking for a "witch's tit" that she would use to suckle Satan. Anything like a mole, wart, freckle, or most particularly a supernumerary  nipple would do

Trump's experts:

* Joshua "The Spider" Merritt, an alleged Army "counterintelligence officer."  He failed the Intelligence Analyst apprentice course and was reclassified as an enlisted Humvee mechanic.

* Mellissa Carone, a "cybersecurity expert" who claimed a Cybersecurity Associate's degree from the University of Michigan which has never offered one.    She also claimed to have a non-existent "Cisco Security Plus" certification.  Sec+ is offered by CompTIA.  Cisco does CCNA.  Several of the companies she listed on her LinkedIn profile denied ever employing her.  By most accounts, she is a sporadically employed stripper.
