Voting Machines in Fayette County PA Were Not Counting GOP Votes – County Uses Dominion Voting Machines UPDATE

 

Update on Luzerne County

Dominion Responds After Pennsylvania Election Officials Report ‘Coding Error’ With Voting Machines

Republican and Democrat voters report issues in Luzerne County
 
Election officials in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, reported issues with voting equipment at polling places on Tuesday, prompting a response from Dominion Voting Systems saying that there was a ballot screen error regarding the viewing screen’s header.
….

 

Luzerne County Director of Elections Bob Morgan told local media that coding on the Dominion Voting Systems machines triggered the problem.

According to some voters and officials, speaking to WNEP, when Republican voters approach the machine to vote, the introduction page says, “Official Democratic Ballot.” A polling place in Kingston Township confirmed to the news outlet that it was forced to pause voting on Tuesday due to the issue.

….

Vough added to the paper he would suggest that Luzerne County end its contract with Dominion during the next council meeting.

Morgan, meanwhile, explained to PAHomepage that “there is no evidence of any of this problem on the mail-in ballots which were produced from that file” and added that the county is “still working with Dominion to get an explanation as to how this coding error occurred. They were as surprised about it as we were.”

When asked if there was any way it was the fault of the county, Morgan said, “No.”

“We’re doing signs, we’ve contacted each of the judges of elections. We’ve asked them to place a sign at their voting place. We’re giving Republican voters the opportunity to vote by provisional or emergency ballot if they choose.”

 
 
Back to the post:

At first, everyone was under the impression that there was a problem with the barcodes on all ballots, but it turns out only Republican ballots are being rejected this past Tuesday’s primary.

How strange.

Gateway Pundit has been about the only game in town to find out anything about the November voting fraud audits. Dominion has been threatening everyone and anything and have been filing lawsuits. The Pundit have been covering the various voting audits from this past election in November and there are many and ongoing. The Feds are trying to block them at every turn. Visit them to catch the latest inside story on the audits. They are on it.

Pennsylvania:

Update from CBS Pittsburgh: The Fayette County solicitor said the courts have granted an emergency petition, which means all the ballots that weren’t scanned will be hand-counted by the judge of elections at each individual precinct once the polls close at 8 p.m.

In the meantime, elections officials are collecting the Republican ballots and storing them in the back of the voting machines. (This makes sense don’t you think for insuring and honest and fair election?)

The Liberty Daily:

Now this…
According to the Fayette County government website the county uses Dominion Voting machines. Check out the link to see what an absurd system is being used in certain counties.

Fayette County Voting System

 

Welcome to the Fayette County voting system page. This page tells you how to vote in person on Election Day in Fayette County.

Most voters in Fayette County will vote using a hand-marked paper ballot. Some voters will use the Dominion Imagecast X to mark their ballot. All voters will use the ImageCast Precinct Scanner to cast their completed ballot.

it wasn’t all of the ballots that were being rejected. A certain type of ballot was being rejected — specifically, only Republican ballots were getting kicked back by the machines. Judge Joe Scalise said he had a rough morning with Republican ballots being rejected — and then he started hearing that it wasn’t just his precinct, but a countywide issue. According to KDKA:

Elections officials in Fayette County are working to solve a problem dealing with voting machines not accepting ballots. Numerous voters have contacted KDKA, reporting that their Republican ballots were not accepted.

The Fayette County Bureau of Elections has confirmed that precincts across the county are having issues with machines not scanning bar codes on all ballots, for both Republicans and Democrats. Hutchison Elementary School, the polling location for South Union Township’s 3rd voting district, was among those having issues on Tuesday morning.

Chris Varney, Judge of Elections says they were initially under the impression that it was a problem with all ballots, but then determined it was only a problem with Republican ballots. Varney says he was unaware of which specific precincts were dealing with the same issue, but that this same issue was happening in numerous locations across Fayette County.

The solution provided by Fayette County officials was to collect ballots from voters and store them in the back of voting machines — but not to scan any of them to ensure the process was handled in a fair manner.

We’ve heard different variations of this story ever since November 3, 2020, when voting machines seemed to switch votes from Republicans to Democrats. At the heart of the scandal during the big election was Dominion Voting Machines. Certainly they’re not at the heart of this particular voter “challenges” story as well, right? According to the Fayette County Voting Portal:

Most voters in Fayette County will vote using a hand-marked paper ballot. Some voters will use the Dominion Imagecast X to mark their ballot. All voters will use the ImageCast Precinct Scanner to cast their completed ballot.

No word from Dominion or anyone else about how this could have happened again, or why it seems to only be targeting Republicans again. During the 2020 presidential election, hundreds of statistical anomalies accompanied over a thousand affidavits and several videos that depicted rampant, widespread voter fraud. As we broke on NOQ Report on November 6, 2020, Dominion seems to be at the center of many of these instances.

The Fayette County District Attorney is opening an investigation into ballot issues from Tuesday’s primary; KDKA’s Amy Wadas reports.

Why not hand count all the ballots? All the time? Unless there is an audit the assumption is that the machine has counted the ballots correctly. More on the election after the official count comes out on Friday. They are still counting ballots last I checked. By the way, Pennsylvania has drop boxes as well. What possibly could go wrong. The military ballots are still out there wandering around and have a couple more weeks to check in.

The best of the swamp today.

Where is the GOP regarding election fraud?

 

I think this nails it. I fault the GOP. A merry band of volunteers trying to save the USA is not my idea of a professional response. Anyone with sense should have known that having ego-centric Rudy Giuliano as the head honcho would come close to dooming the outcome.

One only had to look at the Ukraine fiasco with him trying to make his points with his bulging eyeballs popping out of his head and spittle landing on the camera lens.

I for one am sick of him.

 

 

A source who spoke to Breitbart News on background suggested that the team had hoped to work with her, but that Powell’s public claims had gone beyond the scope of the evidence they had seen and believed they could prove in court.

Powell had pursued a theory that Dominion voting machines, operating with Smartmatic software, were manipulable and had been responsible for switching votes from Trump to Democratic challenger Joe Biden. She also alleged that Dominion had worked with foreign governments, including Venezuela, and produced an affidavit purporting to support that allegation.

My suspicion? She touched the third rail with the CIA server over in Europe. Anyone want to bet the CIA has dirty hands around the world?

As for Trump. He bears some blame. Why doesn’t  he get rid of Wray and Haskell? Why didn’t he have the federal Marshalls lined up to step in? It is a federal election isn’t it? Why wasn’t he in court before the election. Now we sit around waiting to lose the  Georgia senate seats. Voting starts December 4 as I recall and it is the same old same old. Sitting around and letting it happen it seems to me. Just saying.

If anyone thinks that should Trump fail he will be around in four years think again. The entire deep state will make his and his family and all his minions lives a total hell. Look for them to kneecap him with endless legal action. Just look at Flynn. The courts will be happy to oblige.

Everything swell here in the swamp.

Anti-Trump debate moderator Kristen Welker compilation trashing Trump

 

One can only wonder how in the world did the GOP ever agree to the moderators of the so-called debates? Chris Wallace was a disaster. We know the story of Scully. Now we have this piece of work on tap for this week’s debate. Best thing now they add a mute button. Gateway Pundit snagged a couple of her best moments.

Why would President Trump subject himself to a moderator Kristen Welker who has said he needed Stone to help him “cheat his way into the” White House? It’s outrageous that the debates are a stacked deck against him.

 

Here we go:

A week ago the third official anti-Trump debate moderator Kristen Welker deleted her Twitter account.

Too bad for Kristen Welker the internet lasts forever and a couple of her anti-Trump tweets were later brought to light.

Here is a video compilation of Kristen Welker trashing President Trump and pushing the Russia hoax.

Other than that all is swell in the swamp.

Democrats far more likely to snitch on neighbors than Republicans

 

Democrats are far more likely than Republicans to say they’d report neighbors for holding a social gathering in violation of coronavirus stay-at-home orders, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.

An interesting poll that gives details on how far we have slipped in becoming a police state and like Nazi Germany.

Overall poll:

Just the News Daily Poll
With Scott Rasmussen

 

“There is a huge partisan difference,” Rasmussen said. “By a 44% to 31% margin, a plurality of Democrats would turn in their neighbors. By a 60% to 25% margin, Republicans would not. Independents are evenly divided. Other data I’ve released shows that a plurality of Republicans now believe the worst of the pandemic is behind us. Democrats strongly disagree.”

To see the full demographic cross-tabulations for this polling question, click below:

There are two pages and breaks it down further. Example by age. The kiddies much more likely to snitch. Apparently school indoctrination is working swell.

Suburban and urban voters are evenly divided on the Just the News Daily Poll question. However, by a 53% to 28% margin, rural voters would not report their neighbors.

“This is consistent with a tremendous amount of data I’m seeing highlighting the differences between suburban, urban, and rural voters,” Rasmussen said.

“There is also a gender gap,” he also noted. “Women are evenly divided. However, by a 51% to 32% margin, men would not report their neighbors to the police.”

Keep Reading

A good read that dovetails with the Rasmussen poll.

 

From Front Page Mag:

People will argue that a temporary police state has been justified because of the allegedly unique threat to life posed by the new coronavirus. I do not believe the data will bear that out. Regardless, let us at least agree that we are closer to a police state than ever in American history.

………

No. 4: Snitches.

How do the police dispatchers learn of lawbreakers such as families playing softball in a public park, lone joggers without face masks, etc.? From their fellow citizens snitching on them.

The mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, set up a “snitch line,” whereby New Yorkers were told to send authorities photos of fellow New Yorkers violating any of the quarantine laws. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti similarly encouraged snitching, unabashedly using the term.

It is said that about 1 in every 100 East German citizens were informers for the Stasi, the East German secret police, as superbly portrayed in the film “The Lives of Others.” It would be interesting, and, I think, important, to know what percentage of New Yorkers informed on their fellow citizens. Now, again, you may think such a comparison is not morally valid, that de Blasio’s call to New Yorkers to serve a Stasi-like role was morally justified given the coronavirus pandemic. But you cannot deny it is Stasi-like or that, other than identifying spies during World War II, this is unprecedented in American history at anywhere near this level.

This past Friday night, I gathered with six others for a Shabbat dinner with friends in Santa Monica, California. On my Friday radio show, I announced I would be doing that, and if I was arrested, it would be worth it. In my most pessimistic dreams, I never imagined that in America, having dinner at a friend’s house would be an act of civil disobedience, perhaps even a criminal act. But that is precisely what happens in a police state.

The reason I believe this is a dress rehearsal is that too many Americans appear untroubled by it; the dominant force in America, the left, supports it, and one of the two major political parties has been taken over by the left. Democrats and their supporters have, in effect, announced they will use state power to force any law they can to combat the even greater “existential” crisis of global warming.

And with that All is Well in the Swamp.

Poll: Majority of Republicans support Trump’s Syrian policy

 

A poll released Wednesday found that 57 percent of Republicans support President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria.

The statement of the year from Trump.

They have a problem at the border; it’s not our border,” the president said.

“If Syria wants to fight for their land, that’s up to Turkey and Syria,” he added. “Syria may have some help with Russia, and that’s fine. It’s a lot of sand. They’ve got a lot of sand over there. So there’s a lot of sand that they can play with.”

An Economist/YouGov survey shows 25 percent of Republican respondents said they strongly approve of pulling out troops, while 32 percent stated they somewhat approve of the move. Further, 26 percent of Republicans surveyed said they oppose the move and 18 percent said they do not hold an opinion on the matter. The poll surveyed 1,500 people between October 13th-15th and had a margin of error of plus or minus of 2.7 percentage points.

The survey’s results show Republican lawmakers who oppose the troop pullout – such as Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Mitt Romney (R-UT) – are at odds with the majority of GOP voters.

For an excellent history on the background of the Kurds check out an earlier post – a portion here:

The Kurds -The Dilemma and its Complicated History

In 2014, President Barack Obama brought the United States into the Kurd-Turk conflict by authorizing the transfer of arms and munitions to the Kurds.  He then (without congressional approval) complicated the matter further (in his opposition to Bashir Al-Assad) by involving the United States in a multi-layered war in Syria —one that involved not only Turkey and the Kurds, but Russia as well.

In effect, Obama’s intervention ended up benefitting both Syria and Russia.  Presidents Putin and Al-Assad must be having quite a laugh at our expense.  This was the mess left on Trump’s plate on his first day in the White House.

……

Have the Kurds been US allies against ISIS?  In a fashion, yes —but they were not fighting for American ideals; they were fighting ISIS for their own purposes —with US aid— provided to the Kurds because it served the United States’ interests to provide it.  We must remember, however, that according to US law, the PKK and YPG are designated foreign terrorist organizations.  Remember too that despite actions taken by the US government, private American citizens have been prosecuted (and convicted) for supporting these Kurdish organizations.

Other than that, all is well in the swamp.

Texas gained almost nine Hispanics for every White last year

 

 

New census estimates show Texas’ Hispanic population growth continues to surpass white population growth, with Hispanics on pace to soon represent a plurality.

The 2016 United States presidential election in Texas was won by Republican Donald Trump by a 9% margin over Democrat Hillary Clinton. As we eye 2020 we would be wise to look at the changing demographics. By 2022 it is estimated that the plurality of the population will be Hispanics:

The gap between Texas’ Hispanic and white populations continued to narrow last year when the state gained almost nine Hispanic residents for every additional white resident.

With Hispanics expected to become the largest population group in Texas as soon as 2022, new population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau showed the Hispanic population climbed to nearly 11.4 million — an annual gain of 214,736 through July 2018 and an increase of 1.9 million since 2010.

The white population, meanwhile, grew by just 24,075 last year. Texas still has a bigger white population — up to 11.9 million last year — but it has only grown by roughly 484,000 since 2010. The white population’s growth has been so sluggish this decade that it barely surpassed total growth among Asian Texans, who make up a tiny share of the total population, in the same time period.

Soon to become a plurality, the Hispanic population in Texas has grown massively since 2010. Meanwhile, the white population is barely staying ahead of the Asian population in growth.

Race 2010 population 2018 population estimate Increase
Hispanic 9,460,921 11,368,849 1,907,928
Black 2,899,884 3,441,644 541,760
White 11,428,638 11,912,849 484,211
Asian 960,543 1,433,736

Encore time for President Donald Trump! Vote Vote Vote!

 

This is why we are great again! Vote, Vote, Vote.. This is the big day. Let’s have an encore with a big night tonight counting all of those Red Votes. Pass the video along. A reminder of just who Trump is and what he stands for.

 

Remember this one? Let’s give the special snowflakes an encore.

Connecticut becomes 11th State to give electoral votes to Presidential candidate with most popular votes

 

While we were looking the other way, the Progs have been busy little bees in changing who qualifies to vote and how our election outcomes are determined.

First the felons will soon have the right to vote if they have not already gotten it.

Then the push is on to make 16 year olds have the right to vote. Europe is well on the way to making it a reality. Good ole E.U.

Forget the 12th Amendment which demands the Electoral College. Instead form an interstate compact:

Additionally, the framers of the Constitution were attempting to prevent too much power from being directly put into the hands of the public. They were consistently wary of any one party having too much power, and there was no difference between a tyranny of one individual and a tyranny of the majority, in their opinion. The Electoral College system was designed so as to nullify some of the potential for the tyranny of the majority by making population less important in the whole of the Electoral College process. Keep Reading

Now the new wrinkle. Give the State’s electoral votes to the Presidential candidate who wins the popular vote thus insuring the demise of the electoral college and overriding the Constitution.

The Connecticut state Senate on Saturday voted in favor of a measure to give the state’s electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the popular vote.

 

The move puts the state in a position to become the 11th, in addition to Washington, D.C., to join an interstate compact to pool their electoral college votes for the candidate who wins the popular vote.

The state Senate voted 21-14 in favor of the bill, with the support of three GOP lawmakers, The Guardian reported. The measure passed the state House on a 77-73 vote last month. Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy is expected to sign the legislation, according to the report.

With the addition of Connecticut’s seven electoral votes, the compact would have 172 in total. For the compact to go into effect nationally, it would need 270 electoral votes – the number needed for a candidate to win the presidency. More at The Hill

Is changing the voting age to 16 a good idea?

Young voters support for Democrats waning, gap vanishes

 

Here is something for a feeling better moment for today. Enjoy the copy of the Frank Luntz tweet and go to Reuters for the details:  Reuters

The online survey of more than 16,000 registered voters ages 18 to 34 shows their support for Democrats over Republicans for Congress slipped by about 9 percentage points over the past two years, to 46 percent overall. And they increasingly say the Republican Party is a better steward of the economy.

Although nearly two of three young voters polled said they do not like Republican President Donald Trump, their distaste for him does not necessarily extend to all Republicans or translate directly into votes for Democratic congressional candidates.

That presents a potential problem for Democrats who have come to count on millennials as a core constituency – and will need all the loyalty they can get to achieve a net gain of 23 seats to capture control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November. Details at Reuters

Facebook hearing – the dog and pony show and the donations that were behind it

 

I watched a good portion of the Zuckerberg hearing. I came away from it thinking it was a dog and pony show. Most of the Senators were poorly lacking in having any real understanding of technology. They no doubt had their staff produce questions that were basically sound, then Zuckerberg would simply act as if he didn’t understand their question with the blank star and ask them to clarify. This of course left the Senators looking stupid. “How many categories of information do you collect?” “I don’t understand the question.”  People decide what is out there by what they place on their page.” Then he goes to his talking points of script. I can’t imagine the House hearing today. Why have almost 50 Senators asking questions, why not a handful that understand technology. But then again, all should be happy. He was very happy to support government regulation and would work with the Senators on it. One thing we did learn is that FB is working with the Special Counsel. But of course. Yes, we indeed want the thought police. Just like we have with YouTube. A previous post:

Southern Poverty Law Center secretly policing content for YouTube

The Southern Poverty Law Center is assisting YouTube in policing content on their platform, The Daily Caller has learned.

The left-wing nonprofit — which has more recently come under fire for labeling legitimate conservative organizations as “hate groups” — is one of the more than 100 nongovernment organizations (NGOs) and government agencies in YouTube’s “Trusted Flaggers” program, a source with knowledge of the arrangement told TheDC.

 

But let’s look at the money:

Facebook PAC donation to senators

Ahead of more testimony from Zuckerberg today, why not check out the contributions that senators on the Judiciary and Commerce, Science and Transportation committees have received for their campaigns from Facebook’s PAC since it started making political donations in the 2012 election cycle.

The totals are based on an NBC review of data from the Center for Responsive Politics.

Check out the full interactive here. (Scroll down a good way on the page)

Here is a bit of analysis:

A MapLight analysis of contributions found that the ubiquitous social network and its employees have given more than $3.1 million in campaign contributions to federal candidates during the last decade.

Facebook donors gave more than $265,000 to members of the Senate Commerce panel, while senators on the Judiciary committee reported $284,600 during the decade. House committee members received about $323,800 from the company and its employees. Rep. Anna Eshoo, a Silicon Valley Democrat whose district is adjacent to the sprawling Facebook headquarters, received $51,050 in Facebook-related donations.

Trump, received $4,815 from eight Facebook employees. (Brave souls- wonder if they are still working)

Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon who ran unsuccessfully for the 2016 GOP nomination and who currently is Trump’s housing secretary, ranked last among presidential candidates favored by Facebook donors, receiving only $250. H/T: Fast Company

Via Free Beacon:

Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, has maxed out political donations to a number of Democratic candidates including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) this cycle, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

In addition to the donations, Sandberg appeared in the hacked emails of John Podesta, the former chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

A pdf file discovered by the Free Beacon that was attached to one of the emails  spoke of ‘discreet conversations’ about forming ‘working relationships’ between the Clinton campaign and the likes of Facebook and Apple. That memo referenced the work being done for the Clinton campaign by a group linked to Eric Schmidt, the former chief executive of Alphabet, Google’s parent company.

Facebook told USA Today that it is important for the tech giant to “develop relationships with elected officials” when questioned on the company’s PAC contributions that have been given to members of the committees questioning Zuckerberg.
