I remember the “Hanging Chads” miniseries from 2000. It was on ALL the channels. I wasn’t a big fan, and I certainly didn’t think it warranted a sequel 20 years later.
To their credit, the state that the entire world was watching every ballot get painstakingly scrutinized passed 2020 with flying colors. Florida got their votes counted and reported in a timely manner this time. So that part of the story does not repeat itself.
Instead of dimpled, pimpled hanging and “pregnant” chads, we’re watching an unprecedented deluge of mail-in ballots which have created major problems.
First of all, mail-in ballots are the easiest way for voter fraud to occur, especially in states where ballots are sent out without being requested.
But we’ll come back to that.
Let’s talk about the “Blue Wave” that was supposed to result in the Democrats taking over the Senate, and increasing their majority in the House of Representatives which would allow a potential Harris… I mean, “Biden Administration” the freedom to ram through the socialist wish list we’ve been hearing about from Bernie Sanders, AOC (who dad used to call “Cookie”) and many on the left.
The wave never made it to shore. In fact, it appears that Republicans will hold the Senate, and currently, 18 of the remaining House races that haven’t been called yet are leaning Republican, and could result in a 50/50 - or close to it – House of Representatives.
Not a very surfable wave.
But still, we saw a real wave of support for Donald Trump on election night come to an abrupt halt when the Atlanta area allegedly stopped counting and went home for the night, and totals halted from other states as well. Then states that looked like sure wins for the president started eroding, and then Wisconsin and Michigan flipped to Biden.
We’ve been told it was because so many mail-in ballots were counted after “day-of” voting in those states, and more were to follow suit.
So, despite likely keeping the Senate, tightening the numbers in the House, we are led to believe that voters rejected Donald Trump.
If that were the case - that voters were repudiating the president - it should have affected the down-ballot voting, and the mythical “Blue Wave” would have flooded Republicans out of Congress.
Overall, Joe Biden underperformed - compared the previous voting totals of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama - in every major city, New York, Miami, you name it, except four cities.
The very states that looked to be sure wins for Trump, which are now either flipped or still too close to call.
So, Trump performs better in every major city except these four and Republicans likely keep the Senate and tighten the House to a slim Democrat majority, at best? That doesn’t pass the smell test.
What also doesn’t pass the smell test is that in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, GOP poll watchers have been kicked out of observing the vote counts despite the law permitting partisan poll watchers to be there and challenging votes if anything looks suspicious.
First, GOP observers had to stand back 100 feet, then were removed from the counting area and then they came back with a court order which was denied.
It’s also worth mentioning that the Pennsylvania state legislature with a Republican majority passed the election laws which were amended by the PA Supreme Court – which has a liberal majority – extended the deadlines for ballots to be received three days after the election, and said that ballots could not be thrown out for not having postmarks or signatures that don’t match.
Detroit election workers put paper and cardboard over windows to keep the counting from being seen with binoculars, and many videos have been circulating of poll workers allegedly filling out ballots before stamping them as received and legal.
Has anyone heard any reports of Democrat poll watchers being ushered out of GOP heavy districts?
We’ve heard of vote count spikes overnight for Biden with none for Trump is a statistical impossibility. Those votes aren’t separated, they are logged and reported all at once.
There have also been allegations of multiple deceased voters showing up as having their votes counted, and in Nevada, reportedly ten thousand votes were cast by voters who no longer reside there.
Arizona was inexplicably called by several outlets on election night, despite the fact that there were many votes outstanding, and in the last few days, the totals have been tightening.
But this is far from over.
I don’t see Trump’s team giving up this easily.
So, one other thing in common with 2000 is that we’re not going to know who will be leading our country for a while. It’s far from over.
