Judge releases Dominion audit report, which claims system “designed” to “create systemic fraud” (Daily Wire)
Regardless of the real cause of the 6,000-vote error in Michigan’s Antrim County, the point is that if this can happen in one place, it can happen any place. It undermines the credibility of not just this election but future elections. The potential for fraud needs to be eliminated — and if that means Dominion ultimately gets forced out, so be it.

- Vaccine comes too late for the 300,000 US dead (AP)
As our Nate Jackson quips, Trump failed to get a vaccine before a single person died. How shameful! But seriously, Mark Alexander says this is yet another example of how fear is the great revenue generator. So expect a lot more COVID fearmongering in the press in the months (years?) ahead.
