Those who’ve been following my posts on attempts to disrupt and derail the forthcoming elections, and on the current urban unrest, will remember that I’ve reported information from unnamed sources in law enforcement and security services. My contacts there stem from my days as a prison chaplain, when I had contact with other departments and agencies, and have developed from there. Those contacts have so far been proven correct in all that they predicted would happen.
They’re now telling me that momentum is building in liberal/progressive cities and states to disrupt the voting process on November 3rd. They claim that there’s real alarm in those circles about how many votes President Trump is getting from early voters. The “powers that be” expect that their supporters will outnumber the President’s in postal votes already cast, so they want to make sure that as few in-person votes as possible are cast for the President on election day itself. In that way, they believe, they’ll achieve victory.
I’m informed that the attack on voting will be three-pronged. I’m paraphrasing the reports I’ve received, and not identifying specific cities or states, so as to avoid anything that might identify my sources (who would undoubtedly face retaliation if they were known).
- Protests and demonstrations may be organized around polling stations – not right next to them, but in the streets leading to them, so that it’s difficult for voters to make their way to them. This will include an element of intimidation, threatening prospective voters in an attempt to make them turn back out of fear. Public transit systems may also be disrupted.
- Polling stations themselves may experience “difficulties” such as lack of working voting machines, or insufficient staff (which will be claimed to have been caused by the disruptions mentioned above), or power outages, or what have you. This is expected to reduce the number of votes that can be cast, irrespective of other factors.
- Natural “threats” such as the COVID-19 virus and/or the weather may be played up to the maximum possible extent. Additional security measures may be imposed to “prevent infection” at polling stations (e.g. disinfecting voting machines after every use, requiring social distancing and masking, etc.). Media fearmongering about the coronavirus is allegedly part and parcel of this plan, to make voters afraid and provide an excuse for such measures. These steps are expected to slow down the rate of voting (i.e. the number of voters that can be accommodated every hour), preventing many from casting their ballot before the polls close.
It’s said that the combination of all of those factors is expected to reduce the number of votes cast on election day itself by at least 20%, if not more than that. Left-wing and progressive sources have been urging their supporters to vote early and/or by mail for months now. They believe they have a solid lead in the votes already recorded. They expect these measures, plus out-and-out voter fraud (which has already been alleged in various places, as in this report last week), to reduce the number of votes for President Trump by voters who actually make it to the polls on the big day. Therefore, they hope that their presumed lead in early votes will give them victory.
Obviously, I’m not able to confirm the reports I’ve received: but I will point out that my contacts have so far been proved correct, by the passage of time, in every warning they’ve given me. I have no reason to disbelieve them this time.
I therefore suggest that anyone concerned with such threats should make time, this week, to vote early and/or send in a postal vote (the earlier, the better for the latter, as they usually have to be received by a deadline). I think voting in person at a polling station is preferable, because that makes it much harder for someone to alter your vote, or pretend it wasn’t received.
Over to you, dear readers.
We have absentee ballots, but they will be driven to our local precinct later this week. I don't trust the USPS. I also want to make sure everything was done properly on our ballots.
Done and done. My whole family already voted in person. Huge early voter turnout in this part of Texas. I have to give the wife credit. She insisted we all go vote because "you don't know what is going to happen". She grew up way out in the country and is always thinking about contingencies. Example: Her car is always full of gas. It starts getting close to half a tank and she tops it up. One time we were going somewhere in her car and a headlight bulb went out. She had a blister pack of spare bulbs in the spare tire compartment. "You gotta be able to see out in the country".
I already voted; first week of early voting.
I might drive nearby polling areas and see what is gong on.
The early voting in my area is hard to get to for parking and for handicapped access, while the normal voting place is easy to get to and has excellent handicap access.
Plus the voiture is equipped with camoflage with the addition of a handicapped placard as the local lefties think all handicapped people are stupid lefties.
So the wife and I are going in on Nov. 3rd. But we'll be careful. It's Florida so Gov. DeSantis seems to have his head on straight about nonsense.
I now live in a very rural area in Washington. My ballot box is about 4 miles away. We received our ballots on the 19th. I'll be dropping it in this week.
One wonders if we will see the Black Panthers out in force in Philly again???
Vote Early, Vote in Person.
Fairly long lines in my part of Texas, first and second weeks of early voting.
I voted early last week. There was only one early voting place for the entire county. However, my wife and I arrived at a time calculated to be between the early work crowd and the lunch crowd – about 10:30 AM. We walked in, voted, and left. No lines and less than 15 minutes for the entire process.
I LOVE being retired.
Immensley long line in Sarasota today. Okay, everyone was 6 feet apart, they were sanitizing the booths between people and ballots were printed on site since this location is for all county residents. So 18 minutes, not counting to and from the car. Of course I looked through all the material before I got there so no sillyness of having to read 6 constitutional ammendments on site to figure out which way to vote. Steady stream of people, annectdotally most over 65, as to be expected in this county.
If this seems likely there should be an organized effort to document it. I'm already seeing reports about long lines at inner city polling places while those in the suburbs are in and out (thus supporting "voter suppression" by Republicans. There needs to be well documented evidence of voter interference outside the cities. Probably combined with calls to law enforcement.
This is similar to fraud claims — I see lots of claims that fraud but it's anecdotal "8 years ago working on a campaign there were nonexistent addresses on the voter list" types of things. It's not clear if there is a real problem or if the person just didn't know where to find the address. Apartment buildings are hard to deal with, the address on the voter list can vary a lot but it doesn't indicate fraud, just poor data entry. Combined with localities keeping people who move away in their voter database (though not receiving a ballot) it's hard to determine real fraud.
I'm not gonna say 'this can't happen' because the Democrats are plumb loco.
However, if they do, it'll be a hell of a step up from two dumb New Black Panthers outside a Philadelphia polling place.
"If you draw your sword to strike the king, you must throw away your scabbard," after all. If they opt for this — don't expect them to accept the election results regardless if Trump wins 49 states and the popular vote.
I suppose at that point, it'll be time for the Crazy Years… yay. 🙁
@ Dave: "don't expect them to accept the election results regardless if Trump wins 49 states and the popular vote."
Good news, then. They're expecting Biden to get between 103% and 107% of the votes.
Treason, sedition and subversion.
We are at war, people. The election is just another battle zone.
Requested my absentee ballot in September for reasons of health and age. Mailed it in first week in October after the first debate. Figured for due diligence I'd at least give Biden a chance, though that circus did not change my mind one iota.
Interesting observation, the Alabama ballot had but four Democrats running for office, five if you counted POTUS and VP separately, though they are one vote. Here, other than President, a great deal of focus was on Doug Jones, the Dem who weaseled his way into Jeff Sessions vacant Senate seat. Seriously hoping Mr. Jones is a two year Senator, and that the vast amount of money he spent on attack adds was wasted.
