The media is accusing President Trump of lying about voter fraud and calls anyone who claims that voter fraud exists a “conspiracy theorist”. As I pointed out last week, voter fraud does exist. From having more registered voters in dozens of counties to Mitt Romney not receiving a single voter in some precincts to dead cats receiving ballots, and the list goes on and on. It is a proven fact that voter fraud does exist and it’s much longer then many in the media would like you to believe.
With so many examples of voter fraud when a majority of the country votes in person, what makes you think that it’s going to be any better with a majority of the country voting by mail? You don’t think there’s any way that close races in states like Florida could see enough fraud that there is real doubt over who the winner was?
I also would like to point out the difference between mail-in voting and absentee voting. Yes, they are both by mail, but in the case of absentee voting, you need a valid excuse as to why you can’t make it to the polls, such as work or a disability. I’ve done it. I went through a six year period where I voted absentee in probably 75% of those races, because I was working on a political campaign and didn’t want to take time away from that to vote. No one is trying to take that away. Absentee voting is a necessity for those in the military or someone who is disabled and can’t make it to the polls. What many have an issue with is everyone who is registered to vote automatically receiving a ballot with no security precautions.
We currently have over 2 million dead people still registered to vote, another 24 million registrations that are considered invalid (according to a Pew Research study) and another 3 million people that are registered in more than one state. Because those people who are dead are still registered to vote, and no one is going to take the time to actually investigate whether the people they are mailing ballots to are still alive, those ballots will go out to their last known address. You don’t think that someone who really hates Donald Trump and has now received a ballot from someone who use to live at their address is not going to vote under that persons name? We are going to just assume that all 330 million Americans are just going to do the right thing? We are just going to assume that everyone who has moved are honorable people and that they are only going to vote in the state which they reside in?
If you are a Never Trumper and you believe that those who support Trump are part of a cult, don’t you think that his “cult” members will vote multiple times if they are truly part of an actual cult, and if they could easily do so? Why would you want to risk that by having a majority of the country vote by mail, when you can put on a mask and vote in person?
Yes, 2 million dead people being registered to vote in a country with 150 million registered voters is relatively low, but it could be enough to make or break some elections, particularly in swing states like Florida where Donald Trump won by just 113,000 votes. In some races that could be enough to swing the election to the other parties favor. Someone running for President, Senate or even your local school board, who the majority of people didn’t vote for, could end up being declared the winner in a close race.
Honest Elections Projections reported that one out of every eight voter registrations are wrong. That is over 12% of the 150 million registered voters, or about 18 million registrations that have some kind of an error on them.
Democrats are crying that Trump is trying to take away their right to vote and rig the election but that is an absolute lie and many of them know that. There is nothing stopping those who are afraid of covid from absentee voting and no one is advocating eliminating that.
In 28 states you don’t need any kind of an excuse to request a mail in ballot.
In 7 states you technically need a reason other than “I’m afraid of covid” to request an absentee ballot, but there’s nothing preventing you from claiming that you will be out of town or claiming that you can’t make it to the polls because you’ll be at work that day.
8 states currently send all registered voters an application to vote by mail.
7 States and D.C. automatically send a ballot to everyone who is registered. D.C. has now even gone has far as allowing you to vote by email.
I mentioned Florida and they are notorious for voter fraud and intimidation tactics. It seems like every election, there is some kind of an issue with voting in Florida. Last week, I mentioned the problems in Broward County, but that isn’t the only problem area in Florida.
In 2017, The Palm Beach Post released an article titled “Winning Candidates helped Voters Fill out their ballots”. In the article they provide multiple examples of how two Democrat candidates intimidated voters and how some people have received ballots without even requesting them. According to the Palm Beach Post, the candidates “took advantage of gaping holes in Florida’s vote-by-mail laws to pressure and cajole voters in their living rooms….in one case, a blind voter said that (Mack) Bernard (candidate for commissioner) filled out and signed his ballot….In other cases, residents said candidates watched over their shoulders, telling them who to vote for”. One woman even claimed that she “felt pressured by a persistent candidate who talked his way into her home and dug out her ballot from a stack of discarded mail.”
The article goes on to claim that “ballots may have been requested without voters’ knowledge” and that these two Democrat candidates received daily updates from the elections office, informing them of when these ballots made it to the voters homes. They then paid a visit to the potential voters immediately after. The voters gave these ballots back to the candidates after they voted and signed them, and the candidates took them back to the Elections office.
I want to make it clear that this isn’t just some “right-wing conspiracy theory” pushed by what Democrats like to call “faux News”. This is a left leaning newspaper in Palm Beach who reported this. Oh, and in July of this year, they endorsed Commissioner Mack Bernard for re-election among several other Democrats.
House Democrats want to see what happened in Florida happen nationwide. In May, Democrats passed the “Heroes Act” which they sneaked into a coronavirus relief bill. The Heroes Act may sound good because who doesn’t want to help our heroes?
But it has nothing to do with what most Americans consider heroes. The act is designed to take power away from the States when it comes to Elections and mandates ballot harvesting nationwide. Under this act, paid activists can canvass neighborhoods to collect mail-in ballots and a voter can designated any person to return their ballot. States would have just 10 days to solve a signature issue on that ballot.
California wants to allow any resident with a valid drivers license (which they don’t even check) to vote, meaning that illegal immigrants will be allowed to vote.
Nevada recently sent more than 200,000 Mail-in primary ballots to wrong addresses. And that was just one county in Nevada.
This year, Virginia sent out over 500,000 absentee ballots with incorrect info.
In New Jersey this year, NBC 4 reported that in a local race, 19% of ballots were not counted. For 2,000 of those, no explanation was given for why they were not counted. This race was decided by just 8 votes. A few weeks later, 4 men were charged with voter fraud, including 2 city council members. I thought voter fraud didn’t exist?
In March of this year, over 500,000 ballots in Florida’s primary were not counted because they arrived after the deadline.
In March of this year, California rejected over 100,000 mail-in ballots in their primary because of mistakes.
In Pennsylvania, tens of thousands of ballots were rejected this year because they were turned in after the deadline. 2 days after the deadline passed, 42,000 votes were still not counted.
In Wisconsin, 22,000 ballots were rejected from being counted in their primary this year. In 2016, Trump won Wisconsin by just 22,748 votes.
Thousands of people in D.C. reported that they never received their ballots in time for their primary this year.
2 Congressional races in New York this year weren’t decided for 6 weeks after their primary this past June. 80,000 ballots in NYC were disqualified, meaning that 21% of the votes that were cast, didn’t count. Some of those were legitimate reasons like they were sent in past the post marked date, but some of those were due to them being delivered past the deadline.
We have all of this evidence of voter fraud and “errors” and yet Democrats want to make it even easier to vote?
Don’t tell me that voter fraud isn’t real or that it only makes up a very tiny percent of votes and not enough to swing an election because, as we have seen in New Jersey and countless other examples, that is NOT TRUE.
The Heritage Foundation found 1,290 proven instances of voter fraud with over 1100 convictions. That’s just what’s been proven. 37 of those cases was from mail-in voter fraud. And this was just since the 2016. No evidence of fraud? Really? Are the people who are making these claims really that clueless or are they intentionally lying to you? In many cases, I would say the latter.
What’s interesting is that the media seems to have done a complete 180 on the dangers of voting by mail, just within the past 8 years. I guess it’s really not that surprising since they seemed to have started taking the complete opposite position on a majority of their stances as soon as Donald Trump became President.
In 2012, the New York Times, in a piece titled “Error and Fraud at Issue as Absentee Voting Rises” reported that “votes cast by mail are less likely to be counted, more likely to be compromised and more likely to be contested than those cast in a voting booth, statistics show. Election officials reject almost 2 percent of ballots cast by mail, double the rate for in-person voting. The trend will probably result in more uncounted votes, and it increases the potential for fraud. While fraud in voting by mail is far less common than innocent errors, it is vastly more prevalent than the in-person voting fraud that has attracted far more attention election administrators say.”
Even the liberal New York Times has claimed that “ voting by mail is now common enough and problematic enough that election experts say there have been multiple elections in which no one can say with confidence which candidates was the deserved winner.” But I thought it was all a “right-wing conspiracy theory”?
It’s no secret that the left really doesn’t like the idea of proving that you are a legal US citizen to be able to vote, and if they get away with this they would be able to accomplish exactly that. In the words of President Obama’s chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, we can “never let a good crisis go to waste”. The current pandemic is that crisis where they can accomplish what they’ve always wanted. A chance to rig an election, especially if it looks like Donald Trump is going to win.
They are trying to cause as much doubt and chaos to 1. Steal the election from Donald Trump if it turns out that a majority of Americans actually want to see him win a second term, and 2. cause as much doubt and chaos as possible if he wins re-election. It is critical that you show up to vote in person if you are able to and prepare yourselves for what is likely going to be a very rough few years, regardless of who wins this election.
