Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. I’d Like to Report an Election Theft in Progress

 

The Nevada Democrat-controlled legislature “in a midnight special session” over the weekend pushed through a massive change to the voting process in the state, without any discussion or debate from Republicans, without any input or counsel from the Nevada Secretary of State, allowing ballot harvesting throughout the state and allowing partisan operatives to enter nursing homes with elderly dementia patients and “help” them fill out their ballots and if the patient is unable to sign the ballot the operative will sign their ballot for them. President Trump has conveyed that the GOP will file a lawsuit in the next day or so to have the law vacated.

My home state of California approved ballot harvesting some time ago which helped flip every single congressional district in once very conservative Orange County to Democrat in one election. It was like…well, a sort of miracle. Some longer-term Ricochet readers may know that my election fraud radar was active three years ago when a court-appointed inspector came to my home prior to my son’s tri-annual conservatorship assessment hearing and claimed she “interviewed” and had a “conversation” with my non-verbal, severely autistic son and that he expressed to her, his desire to vote. My son does not have conversations. My son never watches the news. My son doesn’t know what politics is. This perjurous written testimony from an officer of the court was unsettling to say the least but suggested that my son’s vote may not be the only mentally-challenged adult in the state of California that could be a target for fraudulent vote harvesting.

Attorneys for the Republican Party better get their act together and start filing lawsuits seeking injunctions to stop these efforts by Democrats to steal the 2020 election and require that Republican representatives have oversight to all ballots submitted in elections throughout the country and challenge any ballot or flood of ballots that look suspicious or miraculously appear when a Democrat is on the verge of losing their election.

    Is Nevada also allowing mail ballot vote harvesting without signatures? Here in Texas, that’s been how fraud’s been caught in the past involving votes of the elderly and/or disabled — multiple ballots from a nursing home or elsewhere, but with the same handwriting on multiple signatures. Democrats’ answer to that I’d assume would simply be to permit unsigned ballots to be counted everywhere.

    My question for the Left: If you feel that you have such a good platform, ideas and goals … why do you feel the need to cheat?

    Dad is an election judge back home as a Republican. They’ve been going to nursing homes for a while now, but I believe the voters have to identify who they are voting for verbally. He tells the story about how one woman was so hellbent on Obama that she voted for him for every office. That was probably the only vote Barack got for County Commissioner.

    Wow.

    Where do they find these people?

    Imagine a Republican organization called you and asked you to commit multiple felonies a day to cheat in the next election. Would you do that? How many Republicans would be willing to do that? Some, I suppose, but I would think very few. And nearly all of those who declined would go call the cops.

    How does the Democrat party pull this off without any of their members turning them in?

    Horrifying.

    If operatives in Nevada are permitted to sign for multiple elderly patients with dementia, then one has to assume that the operative can apply their signature for numerous ballots and that the election official counting the ballot would only be concerned with the voter’s printed name on the ballot. What also may be at play is that operatives, if they get their hands on printed ballots or duplicate ballots, may not even need to actually visit a given nursing home because the fraud can be perpetrated at a remote location.

    I just posted on this myself but hadn’t noticed that @brianwatt had beaten me to it so I deleted my post. This comment is something else that I found:

    Joel Pollak writes this for Breitbart:

    . . .[B]uried near the end of [Ben] Smith’s [New York Times] column is a report that Democrats have participated in a “war game” in which they considered several possible outcomes of the election.

    In one scenario, John Podesta — the former chair of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, and a leading figure in party circles — played former Vice President Joe Biden, and refused to concede the election.

    The result: the threat of secession by the entire West Coast, followed by the possible intervention of the U.S. armed forces:

    But conveniently, a group of former top government officials called the Transition Integrity Project actually gamed four possible scenarios, including one that doesn’t look that different from 2016: a big popular win for Mr. Biden, and a narrow electoral defeat, presumably reached after weeks of counting the votes in Pennsylvania. For their war game, they cast John Podesta, who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, in the role of Mr. Biden. They expected him, when the votes came in, to concede, just as Mrs. Clinton had.

    But Mr. Podesta, playing Mr. Biden, shocked the organizers by saying he felt his party wouldn’t let him concede. Alleging voter suppression, he persuaded the governors of Wisconsin and Michigan to send pro-Biden electors to the Electoral College.

    In that scenario, California, Oregon, and Washington then threatened to secede from the United States if Mr. Trump took office as planned. The House named Mr. Biden president; the Senate and White House stuck with Mr. Trump. At that point in the scenario, the nation stopped looking to the media for cues, and waited to see what the military would do.

    As Pollak reminds us, “on Election Night in 2016, Podesta publicly refused to concede the election to President Donald Trump.”

    And as the OP says, the Republican Party had better be ready for the lawfare that’s gearing up to delegitmize the election.

    A caller to Mark Levin referred to an article laying out this scenario:

    A campaign of litigation drags out the results. The Electoral College does not elect a President. President Pelosi takes office.

    Levin could not in the moment say that this was not constitutional; he is going to look into it.

    It is now an experiment by turning voting into a ballot harvesting contest. The DNC is very good, I wonder if the GOP will compete well. The Rules for Radicals suggests to make them live by their own rules and attempt to overwhelm the system with suspect ballots. Operation Chaos sponsored by America’s adversaries!

    Ah, the progeny of Harry Reid diligently carrying on his work!

    In the past, the Republicans usually stood around with their hands in their pockets, occasionally expressing their indignation that the Democrats were actually in it to win it. (I believe it was referred to as “The Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan Method of Losing Elections”.)

    It would be nice if we could install some Republican “street fighters” in all 50 states in the upcoming days, but I’m not that optimistic…

    Well, would you settle for one, whose husband waved a gun at BLM members on his porch?

    Somewhat related: Back in the days of Jim Crow there were states which would allow you to cast a vote on behalf of a dead relative on the pretext that you could know with confidence how that dead relative would have voted had they still been alive. Of course, “you” had to be of the right race and support the right Party. Plus ca change…

    And. 

    Every Trump voter, every American who does not want a socialist society with sham elections from here out, must get in the game. If the rule is ballot harvesting, then farm votes better than the Democrats. If Democrats can help confused folk vote, Republicans and independent voters should show even more compassion in action in nursing homes, assisted living facilities. Fight like you have a country to save.

    Because the ends justify the means. As a leftist I knew back in the 90’s said, “I just think if [George W.] Bush were elected president, he would have to be assassinated.”

    One of the interesting things about 2018 vs. 2020 in terms of vote harvesting is that a lot of places which would be the most likely ones for harvesting, like assisted living center for the aged or infirm, should by rights be no-go zones for even casual family members due to COVID-19. Nobody should be able to march into a nursing home, collect a bunch of signatures after ‘helping’ people vote, and march out again, out of fears they might turn the building into a coronavirus incubation hothouse.

    Of course, based on the remorse people like Andrew Cuomo are showing toward putting people back into nursing homes with COVID, sending someone in to harvest votes for Biden isn’t going to be a big deal. But at the very least for legal purposes, you’d think the care centers would be cautious and would want to be very careful about tracking who does and who doesn’t get into their facilities in 2020.

    When Republican donors and voters hear allegations of fraud, they mostly recoil. When Democrats donors and voters hear allegations of fraud, they shrug. The Chicago relations were born and raised in it and they know their politics is a sewer but what can you do, they say.

    Ken Cuccinelli, a Republican Virginia Attorney General, was stupid about accepting a few gifts from a company, Star Scientific, with cases before his office. It was an amount that would not have drawn coverage if he were a Democrat, and he had recused himself from the cases in question, but it hampered his gubernatorial campaign. (He lost me as a volunteer when he served mimosas at 7AM at CPAC, I’m a teetotaler and I was thirsty and I had shown up to hear my candidate speak at an early hour and I haven’t made that mistake again. But I wasn’t thrilled with the appearance of conflict of interest, either.)

    If Republicans are seen using the same disreputable tactics they have been rightly decrying for years, they will face a backlash their most corrupt opponents won’t.
