I've been waiting for the audit process to run its course, rather than try to keep up with breathless speculation. However, this morning sundance has pointed to an article in which a named person associated with the AZ audit makes important assertions of fact. Sundance argues that the fact that these assertions are not being reported anonymously warrants repeating them, and I agree. What follows is simply the relevant portion of the article as reproduced at CTH. I did check the original, and what follows does appear to be the extent of the relevant information:
ARIZONA – Several hundred thousand votes that were counted in Maricopa County, Arizona are associated with missing ballots, according to an audit organizer who is speaking regularly with people on the audit floor.
“We found a ballot shortage, anywhere from 5 to 10 percent of the votes,” Josh Barnett, an audit organizer who led the affidavit drive to make the audit happen, tells NATIONAL FILE. “It looks like a couple hundred thousand ballots are unaccounted for. The ballots are missing.”
“I also know that there were boxes filled with blank ballots in those pallets. There were blanks in there,” Barnett said, citing a person who is frequently at the audit site as part of the audit process. “They (election officials) were doing it for appearance, to try to hide the fact that ballots are missing by saying, ‘It’s okay, they’re all right here.’ But the ballots are blank.” (read more)
Obviously, if true--and we should know very soon now--this would be a genormous development, which nationwide ramifications.
When one side uses as many excuses, roadblocks, court filings, etc. to hinder and stop an election audit, that in itself is telling. And in Maricopa it just wasn't Democrats but Republican election officials who were anti-audit. And of course the one-sided U.S. media is doing its best to ignore all of it. Not sure how much longer that can last if this blows up like many believe it will.ReplyDelete
Finally, if this turns out to be as big a fraud on the AZ electorate as this article presents, there had better be some indictments forthcoming.
Worse than I thought possible.ReplyDelete
DJT was deliberately spiking the ball to go beyond the usual margin of fraud to win over Biden.
My feeling is the Democrats emergency election fraud actions to still win were sloppy.
And now the emergency and business as usual election fraud actions are being exposed.
It’s amazing how many GOP aided and abetted the fraud.
I can already envision a countdown of how long it will take the 'media' to ask Biden for a comment on the overturning of the 2020 election results in AZ.Delete
"It’s amazing how many GOP aided and abetted the fraud."
Yes, it is.
I would say that the quest for power and money/greed are powerful motivators, regardless of party.
Add in fear, and everything is possible.
I'm a little unclear on exactly what this claim means. Does it mean machines, in some way, manufactured votes for Biden out of thin air? If so, to do this, and not to throw off registered voter counts, they would have to also subtract that number from Trump's votes.ReplyDelete
Another way would be to cast votes for voters who didn't vote, didn't return physical ballots--doing so wouldn't throw off registered voter counts. In this scenario, actual ballots would also be missing.
It's a big claim. I know nothing about The National File, the source of the story. It's very conservative. Anyway, I hope the claim turns out to be true. It will do a good bit of damage if it's not.
The audit in NH, which was never a big deal like AZ, is going nowhere, as the Republican governor won't allow further audits. Same goes for PA.
Everything hinges on AZ.
Hahahaha....oh Titan. Welcome to the club. Don't try to figure out the precise details of the fraud. The correct answer is "all of the above." The gangsters had to pull out all the stops so they weren't worrying about whether numbers added up or voter rolls matched. They had 110% voter turnout in MI for crying out loud.Delete
You'll know its true when they start de-platforming people for talking about it.Delete
Looks like some big fraud in Georgia. Article cited courtesy of CFP.ReplyDelete
@Mikeyinfl, Now that's old school investigative journalism. Heck of an article.Delete
Great article. The key finding seems to be that the files provided by Fulton County included only drop box transfer forms showing chain of custody for 59,042 absentee ballots placed into drop boxes, yet between 75,000 and 79,000 absentee ballots were collected from drop boxes. There were at least 15,000 absentee ballots counted for which no chain of custody has been established. Biden's margin of victory was less than 12,000 votes.Delete
I'm a new Arizonan, but have just submitted the info necessary to participate in the audit: 3 letters of recommendation, Voter ID card, legal name, email, phone. A background check will be run and assuming I get past that hurdle (I hope they don't go back to my Berkeley days ;-D), I look forward to pitching in and seeing first hand how this process works.ReplyDelete
That's great PD!Delete
Berkeley should be no problem.Delete
If one falls, they all fall.ReplyDelete
It would seem there are enough flawed and missing ballots in a half a dozen counties to void the election irrespective of the Arizona recount. This cannot stand.ReplyDelete
I think the first line of defense of the Biden admin is to use the MSM to undermine the credibility of the audit. I was surprised to see Anderson Cooper last night devoting a long segment on CNN to the AZ audit, but the chyron read “FRAUDIT”, clearly indicating that they want to frame the audit as a fraud. But the fact they are beginning to cover the AZ audit at all, must mean the are worried about what will be revealed.ReplyDelete
AZ AG Mark Brnovich wrote a helluva letter to Garland yesterday, warning him to keep Feds away from jabbing the audit:ReplyDelete
"My office is not amused by the DOJ’s posturing...."

"breathless speculation."... Amen on that!!!ReplyDelete
I'm glad to see it looks like I was originally wrong on the AZ audit. My concern was with the lack of "criteria" that was being withheld and the dozens of "gloss over" audits that have been done.
Maybe for ONCE we will get concrete answers but I still hold there will be very little accountability.
For the time being, I hope those close to the processes will learn to bite their tongues. No matter how "good" the leaked news may be or how valid it is, it will weaken the already attacked results as being even more political.
Arizona is eyeballing doing another audit / recount after this depending on the results. As I understand it this particular passthrough is only looking at the presidential result count and not all of the down ballot races. If they choose to audit / recount the down ballot it could have actual impact in currently held offices. The lawsuits would become biblical over that fight but wow will it get interesting of they start invalidating state races!!!
What's particularly interesting is to see the response of the state to DoJ's attempts at intimidation. It's one thing for DoJ to take on a state when they have the law on their side, but it's quite a different thing when the state is acting in accordance with explicit provisions of the US Constitution.Delete
I use to tell my friends that the prosecutors could have had a video of OJ killing those 2 people and the jury still would have found OJ NOT GUILTY....the same will be true in AZ as it is across the country on endless issues...NOTHING HERE FOLKS....MOVE ON HAS BECOME THE MINDSET....!!!ReplyDelete
DJ, that had to do with the makeup of the jury. It was no accident that the prosecutors moved OJ’s trial from the Santa Monica courthouse, which was the proper jurisdiction, to the downtown Los Angeles courthouse. Significantly different demographics.ReplyDelete
BTW, I saw the place where OJ committed those two murders. A tiny confined fenced walkway, between two gates … For a big man like OJ, recently “graduated” from SEAL training (for a movie), in pitch black night with the element of surprise on his side, it would have been a piece of cake to disable Goldman and then Nicole.
