The Left’s HR 1 Bulk-Mail Ballot Fraud Strategy

The Democrats’ bulk-registration and bulk-mail balloting strategy worked, and HR 1 will ensure it works indefinitely.

“The crisis is arrived when we must assert our rights, or submit to every imposition, that can be heaped upon us, till custom and use shall make us as tame and abject slaves.” —George Washington (1774)

A slim majority of Georgia voters just returned control of the nation to leftist Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who will be restored as Senate Majority Leader with the tiebreaker vote of incoming VP Kamala Harris by the end of January.

Schumer will then work with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Biden/Harris regime to rapidly undo the Trump administration’s initiatives and reset the nation’s course back toward the tyranny of statist socialism.

How did that happen in Georgia?

As I asked ahead of the runoff: Given that the state’s leading leftist protagonist, Stacey Abrams, has registered more than 115,000 additional Demo voters since November in a state that Donald Trump failed to carry, can either GOP Senate candidate win?

While the contested presidential election was sucking all the Republican air out of the room, Georgia Democrats hit the ground with a winning strategy for Schumer — the same strategy they used in November. And that strategy succeeded in the election of two far-leftist candidates, radical Raphael Warnock and nothing-burger John Ossoff, in a state that has been otherwise generally conservative.

(Of note, as of this date, there has been no chain of custody established for 404,000 absentee ballots left in drop boxes, and Atlanta/Fulton County is one of the 35 counties unable to produce that chain of custody. But…who cares?)

What strategy? Well, it was not the election fraud the president has been focusing on for the last two months —" rigged voting systems" and state legislatures not performing their constitutional duty.

Then what happened?

What follows is an alarming explanation of the real impending threat to the future of voting integrity, thus American Liberty, on the heels of the Left’s successful election strategies in November and in Georgia this week, which turned our political system hard left. That strategy has paid, and will continue to pay, rich power-shifting dividends if Demos’ House Resolution 1 and Senate Resolution 1 are both passed.

By the latest accounting, Joe Biden received a record 81,283,098 votes (51.3%) in the November 3 election, while Donald Trump received 74,222,958 votes (46.8%), with 2,926,539 votes (1.8%) going to third-party candidates.

In a nation of 333 million Americans, almost 160 million (66%) of its 239.2 million eligible voters cast votes. That’s the highest voter turnout rate (if one considers bulk-mail balloting “turnout”) among eligible citizens since 1900, when 73% of voters actually turned out in person to cast ballots in the race between Republican President William McKinley and Democrat challenger William Jennings Bryan. Elections were close then, too, with McKinley winning with a little more than Biden’s margin — 51.6% of that vote.

Six months into his second term, in September 1901, McKinley was assassinated and succeeded by Vice President Teddy Roosevelt.

For different reasons, as I noted soon after Biden selected Kamala Harris as his Black (check box) female (check box) Left Coast (check box) running mate, she will also replace him — making her the titular head of the Democrat Party’s leftist cadre comprising the enemies of the Liberty.

How did we get here?

Democrats attempted two, in effect, coup d'états to take down Trump during his presidency. The first was the “Russia collusion” delusion, and the second was the Pelosi/Schiff impeachment charade.

Having failed at both, their third and final effort, using a bulk-mail balloting strategy to overwhelm Trump’s electoral support, succeeded. While President Trump has been focused on electronic hardware and software manipulation, I believe those concerns continue to create a diversion from the real mass-voting fraud — tens-of-millions of bulk-mail votes that have ostensibly been authenticated – by the Demos’ “standards.”

The bulk-mail and absentee ballot authentication problem is twofold: First, there is the question of proper identification for the person registered to vote by mail, particularly if that registration was part of bulk-registration initiatives. Second, there is the question of actual signature authentication, be it human or electronic. This is why other countries have severe restrictions on mail balloting.

Before further explanation of those two problems, let’s review the election just past.

Regarding the identification of a voter, states have varying ID requirements.

Some 36 states have laws requesting or requiring voters to show some form of identification at the polls. The remaining 14 states use other methods to “verify” the identity of voters, most often a signature comparison with a signature on file.

The biggest states requiring NO voter ID are, to one degree or another, Democrat-controlled: California, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Oregon, and North Carolina. Of the 15 states that do require voter ID, but do NOT require a photo on the ID, the bigger states are Washington, Colorado, Missouri, Virginia, and Connecticut.

Only six states still have a strict requirement for an ID with photo: Wisconsin, Indiana, Kansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Georgia.

And that brings be back to Stacy Abrams for a minute — she lost to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp by more than 50,000 votes in 2018, because of, she claims, “voter suppression,” starting with the states aforementioned requirement of voter identification. She is a BIG angry victim of the white man. According to Kamala Harris, “Without voter suppression, Stacey Abrams would be the governor of Georgia.” According to Cory Booker, “It was the voter suppression, particularly of African-American communities, that prevented us from having a governor Stacy Abrams right now.”

That anger manifested in Abrams’s vigorous ground game in Georgia, and ultimately, she won — and she established the model for Democrats nationwide.

Fact is, Democrats pretentiously protest that requiring a valid ID to ensure voter eligibility is solely about “voter suppression.” Need I list the number of basic activities that require a photo ID — you know, like buying a beer, or driving a car, or boarding a plane, or attending the NAACP National Conference?

Worse than not requiring and affirming identification of in-person voters is the Democrat strategy to expand bulk-mail voting by millions of, in effect, unidentified voters.

Currently, voting by mail is an option in 33 states and the District of Columbia. In 2020, five states — Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Utah, and Washington — held elections almost entirely by mail, with Hawaii and Utah adopting full vote-by-mail elections in 2020.

In 45 states plus DC, provisions, some temporary and some permanent, allowed voting by mail without an excuse, and other changes were also made to make voting easier.

In nine states and DC, bulk-mail ballots are now mailed to the last known addresses of all “registered” voters — the so-called “universal voting” process. Those states included major Demo strongholds: California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Colorado, and New Jersey.

The number of bulk-mail ballots skyrocketed to more than 65 million in 2020, 65% of the 101 million early votes cast — and that total was the equivalent of 73% of all votes cast (136.6 million) in 2016. In that election, only 25% (33 million) of votes were the result of “universal voting” or absentee ballots. Predictably, the number of mail ballots cast for Democrats far exceeded the number cast by Republicans.

Some 81% of Democrat voters say they supported voting by mail. And, no surprise here: Almost twice as many Biden supporters as Trump supporters indicated they voted by mail in 2020.

California was a model for voter registration efforts, yielding record voter turnout. As a result, almost 87% of the state’s 17,785,151 votes were not cast in person. Moreover, almost 99.5% of those ballots were accepted — a historically low rate of rejection.

Notably, of mail-in ballots, the rejection rate for primary ballots in 2020 was far higher than in 2016. And yet in the general election, with its record number of mail-in ballots, the rejection rate dropped dramatically.

Federal Election Commissioner Ellen Weintraub insists, “There is simply no basis for the conspiracy theory that voting by mail causes fraud.”

Got that?

This is the year that Democrats figured out how to rig elections “universally” — taking their cue from Barack Obama and his former chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, who declared: “You don’t ever want a good crisis to go to waste; it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

Leftists have masterfully used the ChiCom Virus crisis as national justification for their mail-vote ground game.

As I noted in our “ChiCom Virus Timeline, the Left’s biggest benefactor, billionaire socialist George Soros, asserted early on that the ChiCom pandemic would provide a ”revolutionary moment“: "I would describe it as a revolutionary moment when the range of possibilities is much greater than in normal times. What is inconceivable in normal times becomes not only possible but actually happens. People are disoriented and scared.”

Bulk-mail balloting would have been broadly inconceivable way back in 2019 — which seems like an eternity ago. But as I wrote in April of that year, the Democrats were busy then formulating an electoral strategy to guarantee perpetual rule, as they have every year for the past century.

The Demo objective in 2020 was to register millions of new “victims” and “group identity” constituents who aren’t politically informed or engaged. In many states, registrations require only the loosest criteria for identification. Democrats choose those who would not otherwise vote in person. In states that are not bulk-mailing ballots to every registered voter, they have ensured the new registrants are signed up for bulk requests to receive absentee mail ballots.

But motivating those constituents to vote requires a massive effort to reinforce their victim and/or group-identity status, and last summer they accomplished this with their “systemic racism” canard, dutifully and endlessly piped through every Leftmedia medium into the soft brains of those voters. This helped ensure that they returned those ballots.

Finally, back where I started.

What’s the problem with mail-in ballots, particularly those bulk-mailed to all registered voters in some states?

Beyond the loose identification requirements for voters in many states, the authentication of those ballots is done by signature comparison. The Democrat assertion that the vast majority of November’s mail-in ballots contain authentic signatures is patently unverifiable.

I’ve been a collector of signatures, both contemporary and historic, for my entire adult life. Authenticating signatures, whether that of George Washington or Donald Trump, requires time and expertise. That authentication process is both an art and science.

The notion that 65 million signatures have been authenticated by rooms full of bureaucrats and hourly contract workers who have only the most tangential instruction on signature verification and very limited time to do so is utterly absurd. More absurd is the notion those signatures were sufficiently authenticated by electronic signature scanners.

Recall how Stacey Abrams brazenly bragged about the lack of signature verification in Georgia, how she was “eviscerating” the “exact match” signature standard.

The only legitimate mail-in ballot vote must be from a voter who has been thoroughly authenticated on the front end, and whose signature is expertly validated on the back end. Counting votes as authentic under any other circumstances constitutes massive mail-ballot fraud. This is not so much the willful casting of fraudulent votes as the willful counting of votes that have not been properly vetted on both the front and back end.

What should concern every American who believes the integrity of our elections is important is this: If Democrats can use their bulk-mail strategy to get 81,283,098 votes for dullard and senile Joe Biden, who has accomplished next to nothing in his almost five decades in Washington, what can they do with a top-ticket candidate like Harris — especially given the alignment of the Leftmedia and social media giants against Liberty.

To be clear, Democrats are not interested in election integrity. The only way to ensure the integrity of our election process is to require in-person voting, requiring the voter to present proper identification, and perhaps resorting to paper balloting.

But the time for revitalizing that requirement is long gone.

HR 1 and SR 1 are on the immediate horizon.

To fully comprehend the Democrat’s fraudulent bulk-mail strategy, consider Nancy Pelosi’s House Resolution 1 HR 1 bill, laughably named the “For the People Act of 2021” – it is anything but. It is noted as HR 1 (and SR 1 in the Senate) because it is the first and highest priority for both House and Senate Demos.

House Resolution 1 is largely the same HR 1 bill which, on 8 March of that year, passed the House by a party-line vote of 234–193, but it was blocked from receiving a vote by then-Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who then had a narrow Republican majority.

Despite Joe Biden’s “unity” theme, the Democrat agenda is anything but. Pelosi’s HR 1 stipulates that the federal government will, contrary to our Constitution, have the power to set universal regulations regarding voter identity requirements, in order to implement universal bulk-mail balloting. HR 1 asserts: “A state may not require an individual to provide any form of identification as a condition of obtaining an absentee ballot. … A state(s) may not require notarization or a witness signature or other formal authentication (other than voter attestation) as a condition of obtaining or casting an absentee ballot.”

That should alarm every American interested in the future of Liberty.

(Update: On 3 March, again on a party-line vote (220-210 ), Democrats passed the 791-page HR 1 behemoth, which now heads for the 50-50 split Senate as SR 1.)

It should be noted, however, that if Democrats can register millions of new voters, so can Republicans. But Trump’s campaign and the GOP were AWOL in November and for the Georgia Senate runoff — completely failing to counter the Democrat’s ground game. The old adage, “fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me” applies. The country can’t afford another election cycle with the GOP being AWOL.

The Democrats now have a three-pronged attack plan to control the results of future elections – listed in order of importance: Expand their bulk-mail “universal voting” strategy through HR 1 and SR 1, pack the Supreme Court after retaking the Senate, and, ultimately, eliminate the Electoral College, so the voters of a few massive urban centers can rule the nation.

The most immediate defense against passage of SR 1 in the Senate, is for Trump to call Joe Manchin (D-WV), remind him that Trump won his state by a whopping 39 percentage points in 2020, and “encourage” him to switch parties or face a recall. I am sure that prospect is hanging over Manchin’s head, and thus, he will be the most difficult Senator for the Demo’s to keep in their column.

Hopefully the Left won’t be emboldened to dispense with the Electoral College by those Republicans in the Senate and House who exercised their right to object to the election results. Such objections are nothing new, but the unfortunate events that followed those objections by Trump, were new.

Vice President Mike Pence was called to certify the election results, and he has said correctly, “It’s is my considered judgment that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not.”

Unfortunately, while addressing a rally of thousands of his supporters/protesters near the Capitol building as the election was being certified, Trump responded with this disgraceful shot at his loyal VP: “Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!” He then declared he was going to lead them down to the Capitol building. Some of his unhinged sycophantic supporters interpreted that as an invitation to attack Capitol Police and mob the Capitol building, intending to interrupt the deliberations over election certification.

They succeeded, forcing the evacuation of the building. But House and Senate members reconvened later in the evening to confirm Biden’s election.

We hold our side of the political spectrum to a higher standard than the Left’s antifa thugs, their BLM haters, and other violent cadres, but some of the Trump fringe supporter behavior in Washington was largely indistinguishable from leftist thuggery. Condemnation from conservative political and thought leaders was swift and unequivocal.

Politicization of the protest/riot in the Capitol by Pelosi and Schumer was equally swift.

Of course, Democrats called for Trump’s impeachment to keep this disgraceful occurrence front and center as political theater until the day he leaves office – and beyond. But this is abundantly clear: While the actions of this fringe group of rioting miscreants reflects poorly upon conservatives, in fact it does not represent to any degree the broad spectrum of more than 100,000 Trump supporters at his DC rally, or millions of Americans across the nation who have supported his administration’s conservative agenda — none of whom would approve of this inexcusable behavior.

All said, as I have written previously, Trump’s “election fraud” protests, and the DC rally debacle, are likely to overshadow the legitimate concerns about election fraud. The Left’s HR 1 and SR 1 fraud strategy is of much greater consequence to the future of our nation.

Concerning the lack of confidence in our electoral system, a Quinnipiac University poll found that 77% of Republican voters “believe there was widespread voter fraud during the presidential election.” And “of voters overall, only 60% believe the election to be legitimate.” Those finding were largely duplicated in a Politico survey, which “found that 79% of Trump voters believe the election to be stolen through illegal voting and fraud.”

But those Republicans have yet to grasp the overarching danger posed by passage HR 1 and SR 1. And Democrats would like to keep them in the dark.

Republicans should and will seek to roll back “universal voting,” but that will be met with leftist protests of “voter suppression,” much as they have protested affirming the identity of a person to ensure voter eligibility.

Next up in the Demos’ black bag of election fraud tricks, regardless of whether they are able to pass legislation institutionalizing voter fraud, will be voting online and via apps.

Patriots, for the moment, it’s back to 2008, when Barack Obama’s Demos held the House and Senate — until they got hit by the Tea Party wave in 2010…

The good news is that 26 state GOP attorneys general are banding together to hold the line against the Biden/Harris regime. And that could lead to a more rigorous alliance to create a Constitutional Confederation of States.

Fellow Patriots, some of you are discouraged. But let me encourage you to stand fast and firm! Hold the line. Remember who YOU are, brothers and sisters — who WE are together — and from what stock you come.

Let me remind you: You are NOT alone. There are more than 100 million grassroots American Patriots across our nation, and our ranks are growing. The BIG difference between conservative and leftist voters is that most of those Demos are dullard urban dwellers and their elitist “white privilege” suburban benefactors, all of whom depend in large measure on working Patriots across our country for their very survival.

Stand fast and firm!
