A “day of reckoning” is coming – Lin Wood reveals, “the evidence I have is stunning!”

Disinfo campaign or prelude of things to come? Hmmm….

Audio Transcript

John Fredericks: Lin Wood, thanks for being with us, sir.

Lin Wood: Good morning. I guess you are finding that our mainstream media is not telling the American public the truth about this election. That does not surprise me. As I’ve said, many times, the mainstream media, I believe, is a propaganda tool for third party, bad actors, who are attempting in effect to overthrow our government, and to interfere in the election of a duly elected president of the United States. I think you’re going to see a lot of developments over the next several days that will wake up this country to foreign interference in our national election.

John Fredericks: Lin Wood, tell us about your victory last night. You had a victory, then it got reversed. Then you did a zoom call, it got reversed again. Where are we with that now, sir?

Lin Wood: Well, the court initially had impounded the voting machines, the Dominion machines, and all counties throughout Georgia. There was an interesting issue raised by the Secretary of State, claiming that he had no authority over the various counties. That’s utter nonsense, and it’s a misrepresentation of the truth.

The Dominion voting machines were purchased by the State of Georgia and not the individual counties, and the Secretary of State controls how those machines are utilized in each county. The Judge though was misled, I believe by the Secretary of State and then he changed his order. We got back before the court last night, and the court did in fact rule that in three counties. Those machines must be impounded so that we have a chance to do a mirror image of the computer drives. This is going to prove somewhere down the road in the near future. Without any question that these machines and the software used for manipulated.

Dominion originated in Venezuela, it’s a Canadian company. Servers were used in Barcelona and in Frankfurt. There’s no question that there’s going to be overwhelming evidence that foreign countries, including China, were involved in interfering with our national election. I think your viewers and listeners should recognize that the President of the United States, that was what he’s doing. Back in September of 2018, there was an executive order put in place, which gave the President the authority working with other members of the government to impose sanctions in the event of foreign interference in a United States election.

If I were Governor Brian Kemp and Brad Raffensperger, I would not be sleeping very well tonight. Time is coming up. Soon, when the provisions of that order, I believe, will be enforced, is going to be any number of individuals, including members of the media who were involved with foreign actors and tried to undermine our election, which is a clear and present danger and threat to this country.

The Democrats for years, first two to three years of the Trump’s presidency, complained about Russia. That turned out to be a hoax. What we’re going to find out in the next several days is this is not a hoax now. This country had its national election interfered with by foreign actors who were complicit with citizens of the United States. There are severe sanctions. I believe ultimately a lot of people are going to jail as they should.

John Fredericks: Lin Wood let me ask you this. Lin Wood with us noted the attorney in Atlanta filed this lawsuit. Why did Secretary of State, Republican Brad Raffensperger last night fight so hard to not have the forensic analysis done on these Dominion machines? And why were they in such a hurry to get all the data on the machines wiped, clean? Why sir?

Lin Wood: They’re guilty. Simple truths or simple truth. He who has nothing to hide, had nothing. The Secretary of State is taking every action he can through lawyers to try to prevent an inspection of these machines. He has something to hide. The governor Brian Kemp is hiding in the basement of the governor’s mansion on West Paces Ferry. He has something to hide. You don’t see much of Joe Biden. He has something to hide.

There are any number of individuals associated with the Democratic Party nationally and any number of individuals associated with the Democratic Party, and even the Republican Party nationally and locally that have something to hide. But I believe that every lie will be revealed and the truth is going to come out, about who was involved with foreign actors and trying to interfere with and subvert the legal processes of this country as it relates to our national election.

Once again, we have to be patient. The report on this executive order has to be done within 45 days of the election. I think over the course of the next several weeks, or days even, this country is going to be shocked at the level of foreign interference where American citizens were involved, government officials, political officials, members of the media. There’s going to be a day of reckoning John, and the consequences are going to be for those who tried to tamper with our country’s election.

John Fredericks: All right, walk us through. Lin Wood with us noted Attorney Lin Wood filed the suit. Walk us through the emergency declaration that you got. The ruling on that for your emergency hearing on Wednesday. Walk us through that and tell us what you potentially expect Lin Wood.

Lin Wood: We expect to have our experts, a team of experts, go into three counties and the state to analyze and mirror the hard drives of certain of these Dominion voting machines. The way it’s set up right now, their results will be delivered to the court. There’s some other legal issues that have to be ironed out and worked out, but we believe that ultimately we’ll be able to present that information to the court, and that information will show that these machines were tampered with, and algorithms were put into place. Even where every Democrat started off with 35,000 votes, nice advantage to start off with. An algorithms that gave fractional votes, for example, a vote for Joe Biden would get 1.25 votes and a vote for President Trump would get something like 0.6 or 0.7 of a vote. That was an algorithm placed in that machine that defrauded the American public.

Then you add on top of that, the blatant fraud that was perpetrated through the mail-in ballots, where you had tens of thousands, in some states hundreds of thousands, of ballots that were pristine. They were only votes for Biden with no down-ballot votes that had almost perfect computer bubble markings.

Listen, the combination of the voting machines from Venezuela/Canada, combined with the paper ballots, some of which were manufactured in China is going to be undisputably shown to have taken or attempted to take a landslide victory from President Trump, upwards of 410 electoral votes, 80 million votes, popular vote, to have tampered with and interfered with the election of this country, where we re-elected the President by a landslide and foreign actors working with, I can’t think of the right term, I would say traders in America, tried to flip that result by fraud. People are going to go to jail, they’re going to lose their property. There’s going to be a day of reckoning soon.

John Fredericks: So Lin Wood, you believe based on what you’ve seen and based on the suit that you filed, that when the forensic analysis is done of these machines, you’ve only got three counties right? Cherokee Gwinnett, and what’s the other one?

Lin Wood: Cobb.

John Fredericks: You’ve only got three counties. You didn’t get Fulton County, but you’ve got three. You actually believe that when the analysis is done, that is going to show in the software that there was actually algorithms put in to cheat President Trump votes and to overcalculate for Biden, and that is going to be what you’re saying now, you believe that that is going to be evidence, that it’s going to be hard. Hard solid evidence.

Lin Wood: It is going to be hard, solid evidence. It’s hard to get your arms around the mass amount of evidence of fraud. This fraud was perpetrated in a number of ways and it’s so blatant that it has to raise in a reasonable person’s mind, the fact that they knew they were going to get caught. I believe and have for some time believed that the Democrats didn’t intend to elect Joe Biden, he’s a criminal, or Kabala Harris as I call her, I think she is a communist sympathizer. Why would they run these people for president and vice-president of the United States? Why would they then commit blatant fraud with respect to our election?

If you follow the playbook of a color revolution, you’re going to find that one of the integral parts of color revolution is a disputed election. I think they wanted us to find out. I think they wanted to create turmoil in our country, with some people believing Biden won, others looking at the facts and realizing that President Trump won.

I think they are bad actors in this country that do not love our constitution, do not love our country, do not love our freedom that they want to take over our country. I don’t believe that President Trump is ever going to allow that to happen. I know the American people are not going to allow that to happen. This country is full of Patriots. We’ve grown up all our lives loving freedom. We’re not going to let somebody come over here and steal our lifestyle, and our God-given right to be free. So, I think there’s going to be trouble in this country. I think it’s going to arise out of a disputed election, but at the end of the day, I believe that America, a country founded under God is going to prevail.

We just got some tough days ahead, but I believe that President Trump is going to ultimately keep his campaign promise from 2016. He’s going to drain the swamp, he’s going to expose the wrongdoers in this country, and we’re going to have a great next four years with President Donald J. Trump, running a country that is free of foreign influence, free of these people that have committed crimes for their own money, their own pocketbooks, many of them for their own political ideology. Not everybody in the Democratic and Republican party loves America. We have been, I believe, infiltrated over the last two to three decades by people who are communist or communist sympathizers, or people like Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who have taken China money that’s dirty. It took money into Dominion deal. Kemp took money when he bought a bunch of supplies for COVID test kits, masks, gowns from China. Why would the Governor of the State of Georgia in effect buy bullets from the enemy when you’re in a war?

China is involved in this up to its neck. They launched a virus in this country, COVID-19. I believe it was in effect a biological weapon. If the individual citizens of this country love freedom, if they love the rule of law, then they need to be patient, let the President and the people that are responsible for our government’s effective operation, give them time to work. We’re working in the court systems, but we’re working in the court of public opinion. At the end of the day, it’s not going to be courts that decide this, it’s not going to be legislatures to decide this, while they may be their procedural tools. This election is going to be decided where it should. It’s going to be decided by we, the people. We people voted for Donald Trump, and we’re going to make sure that our vote counts. We’re not going to have it stolen by a bunch of criminals and foreign actors.

John Fredericks: So Lin, would you believe that the lawsuit that you filed and the 104 page lawsuit that Sidney Powell filed in Georgia, you believe that once you get an open hearing and present this evidence to an impartial judge, you’re going to prevail. Is that what I’m understanding?

Lin Wood: You are understanding that correctly? I think the evidence is overwhelming. We are going to prevail in a court of law, but then there are other problems. I personally filed a lawsuit to expose the shenanigans of Brad Raffensperger wearing a back-room deal in March of 2020. He got together with the Democratic party, represented by Perkins Coie, the Hillary Clinton law firm, and tried to cut a deal that changed the rules applicable to the election. He did not take it to the legislature. Members of the legislature didn’t even know that he had done it until I filed the lawsuit. This is a backroom deal. That’s going to be exposed.

The fraud in the case that Sidney Powell has filed is going to be overwhelming, and states around the country that were key to this election. The American public is going to learn the truth. The rule of law is going to prevail, but there’s a large number of people in this country John, that simply do not want to accept the fact that we are a free society. They’ve got their financial interests involved. They developed this propaganda against Donald Trump, who if you look at the facts has served this country well and has kept his campaign promises from 2016. One of those promises was to drain the swamp don’t ever bet against Donald Trump. He’s going to Trump them all. I believe in the end, he’s going to keep that campaign promise, and these people who tried to steal this election, they’re going to go to jail as well they should.

John Fredericks: Lin Wood, do you believe that on January 20th, Donald J. Trump is going to put his hand on that family Bible?

Lin Wood: There’s no question in my mind that Donald J. Trump on January the 20th will be sworn in for four more years as President of United States. I think when all of the truth comes out and people understand what the bad actors tried to do to this country, Donald Trump is going to be remembered as one of the greatest presidents that ever served this country because he served the people and he protected, defended our freedoms

John Fredericks: Lin Wood with us, Lin a couple more minutes. One thing that is just a mind-boggling to me, two things, one, and I want to get back to Georgia for a second, where you live and where you file these suits. Number one, second recount state legislature, certain state senators, Brandon Beach, Steve Gooch will be with us, others have demanded that the signatures on the envelopes be matched so that we can see did people live in Georgia or are they authentic or are they real. We know the ballots and the envelopes have been disassociated, so you can’t determine what envelope in what ballot, everybody gets that, but if there’s a 5 or 6 or 7% rate of fraud or rate of ballots that are going to get thrown out, why wouldn’t you want to see that? Why is Raffensperger fighting that, and that doesn’t have anything to do with the machines, that’s just you send in a ballot. Right now, what we’re finding out is a lot of these ballots had commercial addresses, which is illegal, you have to have a home or residence. They had PO, but thousands of these, you understand had PO boxes, well, that’s illegal. You can’t have a PO box, you have to have an address. So, why don’t they take the time on this recount Raffensperger, and match the signatures with the envelopes? What is the problem with that?

Lin Wood: The problem with that is that it will undermine Mr. Raffensperger freedom, because it’s going to show that Donald Trump won this election. That these votes were fraudulent, they cannot be counted. Georgia went for Donald Trump by a landslide, and when that happens, the next step is going to be to find out the answers to the question that you raise. Why in the world with the governor, a Republican, supported by President Trump, and Raffensperger, a Republican. Why in the world are these people not fighting for the President? Why are they not fighting for the citizens of Georgia to expose this fraud? Why don’t they call a special session with the Georgia legislature to investigate into this? The simple reason is they’re dirty. They know they’re going to be called. They took money, millions of dollars. Said that if the Biden administration ever went into a office, which it will never, maybe their hope is that won’t be investigated by the US attorney, but the problem is it’s going to be four more years of Donald Trump. I predict that they’re going to be US attorneys investigating and have already investigated and linked Mr. Raffensperger and the governor of this state to foreign money that they then used for their own agendas, and interfered with our election.

I believe that Brian Kemp and Brad Raffensperger deserve to go to jail and to ultimately justice will prevail, and they will go to jail. We cannot tolerate individuals taking millions of dollars from foreign actors, and then willfully and knowingly interfering with our election process. This country cannot survive without re-elections. It is the foundation of a democracy as we have in this country. You can’t undermine our right to vote because the minute you do and you take away our right to elect our leaders, you have taken away our freedom. We’ve become a third world country like Venezuela. I don’t believe it’s ever going to happen to a country founded under God.

John Fredericks: All right Lin Wood, final question, let me ask you this. Lay out for us this week, what you expect to happen with your suit, Sidney Powell’s suit in Georgia. Just lay out the expectations so we can track it, sir.

Lin Wood: Well, with respect to the lawsuit that I have, the 11th circuit granted an emergency review, and the briefing will take place tomorrow. The secretary of state has to file a brief. We filed two days later, and then I believe the court will rule. I believe the court’s going to rule on the clear law that our — we’re relying on and the election is void and unlawful. If we don’t prevail in the 11th circuit, either way, it’s going to go up to the United States Supreme Court. I believe the United States Supreme Court is going to follow established law, and I’m going to win my case. With respect to the case that I’m working with is Sidney Powell brought, that was the subject matter of the rulings yesterday. That case is going to proceed through the inspection of these machines. There may be other motions filed in that case.

I also know that at least one or two other lawsuits are going to be filed today. One by the President or ambassador of individual voters with respect to the irregularities in the election. The challenge date has to be the deadline is today, those are going to be filed. Lawsuits are being filed in Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, the states where the fraud was obvious, and it impacted the election. So, it’s tough on the American public to have to wait. Everybody wants an answer.

When you have this level of criminal activity and this level of fraud, give us some time. We’re building the evidence. The evidence is overwhelming, and in due time, the American public will know that our President was re-elected by a landslide. Our public is going to know the names, identities of the people who tried to interfere with it, working with foreign interest. As the Bible says, wait on the Lord. This is going to be resolved, and justice is going to be done, and accountability for the wrongdoers, it’s coming, it’s around the corner.

John Fredericks: And you have said that you have met with Sidney Powell for days, and you have reviewed the evidence in detail and everything that she’s put in this. You have seen it and verified it. It is real.

Lin Wood: It is real. I’ve seen it, I verified it, and the evidence keeps rolling in. You wouldn’t believe the thousands of emails that I’ve received, that Sydney has received from Georgia, from all over this country. American people were paying attention and there are a lot of Patriots in this country John. They’ve been reporting this fraud to us. We probably haven’t even seen the tip of the iceberg, and what I’ve already seen makes up a mountain.

I go back to what I said, Be patient. You’re not going to hear this from the mainstream media. They don’t want the public to know. They’re going to tell you that Biden is the president elect. That is a joke. You’re not the president elect until the electoral college votes or the other side concedes, and I’ve spoken with the President. He is never going to concede because he knows he won this election. If he had lost this election, Donald Trump would abide by the laws of the country and he would walk away from the White House, but we cannot allow that to happen because if we do, then we have thrown out the rule of law. We become a third world country. I don’t believe that the American Patriots are ever going to allow that to happen.

John Fredericks So basically, a win for you is nullifying the certification of the election in Georgia, which then would lead to that happening in other states, and Biden can’t get to 270. Is that the way this plays out?

Lin Wood: I think you’re going to find that there’s going to be legislatures around the country. They’re going to have to decide on their electorals because their elections were fraudulent and unlawful, and there’s not time for revote. There is a provision in the United States constitution. Our founding fathers were brilliant. They were inspired by God, and there’s a provision in our constitution. It actually provides for how our president is elected, and at the end of the day, it may have to go to Congress, where President Trump by virtue of the state legislatures holds a 26 to 23 advantage. That may be the mechanism we fall onto the constitution to get justice done, but that won’t be an election by 26 to 23, that’s going to be an election by 80 million to probably 60 million at best. I’m not sure that’s even accurate for Biden. President Trump won this election with a landslide victory that was of historic proportion. Maybe as much as 70+% to 30.

The American public wasn’t fooled by the media charade and shenanigans that were the Biden campaign. People were watching, and I think that the bad actors that interfere with this election should have known better that they were never going to fool the American people. We love our country, and we love our President Donald J. Trump. He’s protected us, he’s going to preserve, defend, and protect our constitution. We’re not going to allow ourselves again, as I’ve said, we’re not going to allow ourselves to be like Venezuela. The country, by the way, that dominion originated, and before it was sold to Canada,

China’s involved, you may even have involved with Iran. You’ve certainly got involvement overseas with servers in Barcelona and Frankfurt. You probably got overseas involvement with George Soros. Bill Gates is probably involved. There’s a list of people. Justice is coming their way. If I was Brian Kemp in Georgia and Brad Raffensperger, I wouldn’t be sleeping well at night.

John Fredericks: John Fredericks Radio Network. Final question. I just got one listener has been begging me to ask you this. Kenneth Chespeak says, “Can you ask Lin Wood what happened to the crash server in Georgia? What was that about? Lin do you know anything about that? Or was it just more of the same?

Lin Wood: I’ll say it’s more of the same because it’s the media reports one thing and then witnesses report another. We had the AP when the associated press starts get reporting something. Take what they say and look at it opposite, because they are liars. They reported it there was a server that crashed. Server crashed and then we found out from other eyewitnesses that the server was taken out of the room. So, I don’t know if it crashed and that’s whether it was stolen by these people to hide it.

It’s tough to figure out right now who to trust. There are a lot of traitors in this country. The news media is a traitor. News media is going to be held accountable too, but there’s obviously now a problem with whether the Georgia election can even have a valid recount, because of the server crashing in Fulton County. Fulton County was a lightning rod for the frog that was obviously discovered way back from the story of the broken pipe that turned out to be a overflowing urinal, where they literally stopped counting, got a lot of votes brought in, and then without the Republican observers who had been told to go home, they sat there for three hours and manufactured votes for Biden.

I don’t know when this story will ever fully be written, but it’s going to be a long running series to figure out and show exactly what all these people did. They’ve been caught and they’re going to jail, and President Trump’s going to go back to the White House.

John Fredericks: Lin Wood, thank you. It will all going to come out because of Lin Wood, Sidney Powell, and to be honest, I’m not just saying this for us, but media networks like myself, trying to bring the truth out. It’s really difficult to do this. I told you before, the positive ruling you got at 5:00 AM, I literally, to get a story on it had to go to an Australian Newspaper, unbelievable. The censorship Lin Wood, that’s going on, it’s frightening.

Lin Wood: I’ll say this one last thing. You can probably tell from my voice, and I’m tired that there hasn’t been a lot of nights where there’s been much sleep, but this is important. This is our country. This is our freedom. Sidney Powell is going to be a hero and recognized as such one day. She already, I think, is.

What you’re doing is as difficult from trying to get the truth out is what we’re doing to try to assemble the evidence of the truth, but what you’re doing and what certain members of the media are doing. The links you’re going to expose the truth of this public, to the public. You are going to be a hero too John because truth is going to prevail in this country. Truth will always prevail over a lie.

Sidney Powell and I are trying to develop the evidence that proves the truth, and you’re doing a great job of getting that truth out to the American public. So, thank you for what you’re doing. Keep your nose to the grind. I’m going to do the best I can to keep mine to the grind, and let’s get this country back on track. God bless you for your efforts.

John Fredericks: Lin Wood thank you. Thank you for all you do. Want to say also, I said earlier dominion energy, I of course I meant that Dominion voting machines. I just said that out of habit, so I apologize for that. Let me give that retraction. I want to thank Lin Wood for his time. He said, very little sleep, he spent an hour with us today, and this is at trying to give the truth out. That’s what we’re trying to do, and if you could help us out, go to my website, JohnFredericksRadio.com.

We’re doing a 10-day tour in Georgia. 10 cities in 10 days, trying to get the truth out. If you could help us out with a donation. Defray some of the expenses that are — this is very expensive too. We get our paper up and advertising in. It’s tough to do so we need your help. Go to JohnFredericksRadio.com. I want to thank Lin Wood for being with us and for spending the time. I know he’s really tired so thank you Lin Wood. John Fredericks Radio Network.

China: A Cold Shower

It’s only a lump. It will probably go away.

By Fred Reed

December 03, 2020 “Information Clearing House” – “Unz Review” –   In a sort of distributed Ouija board enterprise, intellectuals these days predict the likely evolution of relations between China and America. These authorities do not wallow in consistency. China will take over the world. Alternatively, China will collapse because of a surfeit of men, because the different linguistic regions will become independent, because their debt bubble will explode, because the Chinese can’t “innovate,” and because the population is aging and there won’t be enough workers. And of course, the American military will remain regnant over the planet and nearby galactic space. The US will always stay ahead. Or it won’t. This seems to cover the basses.

Well, maybe. But if you watch what the Chinese are actually doing, you may get the impression that China is largely ignoring the American military and letting the US spend itself to death while Beijing focuses on commerce, business, R-and-D, commerce, the economy, education, technology, and more commerce. You might additionally get the idea that China is a confident, well-governed, energetic people on a roll and doing quite well in the inventive department. The snippets below may support this impression of technical and economic vitality.

The future? An asleep thought (I presume this is the opposite of “woke”): demographics is destiny. America draws its scientists and engineers from roughly 200,000,000 STEM-capable whites. Blacks and Latinos contribute, if not negligibly, then almost so. China depends on a billion STEM-capable Han Chinese. These are the people who dominate America’s elite technical high schools and universities. Thus, it can potentially put five times as many scientists and engineers to work on tech work. As America’s schools deteriorate under the assault of social-justice warriors, China expands its already-rigorous schooling. Add that psychometricians put the East Asian IQ about five points higher than that of Eurowhites. Thus, many more and somewhat smarter STEM people from demanding universities against fewer and less intelligent from inferior schools. Then add stable, focused government versus rule by chaos. Arguably, massive Chinese technological superiority might seem likely.No Advertising – No Government Grants – No Algorithm – This Is Independent MediaGet Our Free NewsletterYou can’t buy your way onto these pages

Increasingly America does not compete with China, but strongarms it because it cannot compete. For example, in Five G China is ahead in technology, manufacturing capacity, and turnkey systems. Unable to produce an equivalent product, Washington banned Huawei Five G in the US and has twisted arms to keep countries that it controls from using Huawei. Seeing that Huawei had very attractive smartphones that would have competed with Apple, it banned these also. What America can’t do, it seeks to keep anybody else from doing.

WSJ: “US vs. China in Five G: The Battle Isn’t Even Close

HONG KONG—By most measures, China is no longer just leading the U.S. when it comes to 5G. It is running away with the game. China has more 5G subscribers than the U.S., not just in total but per capita. It has more 5G smartphones for sale, and at lower prices, and it has more-widespread 5G coverage. Connections in China are, on average, faster than in the U.S., too…By year’s end, China will have an estimated 690,000 5G base stations—boxes that blast 5G signals to consumers—up and running across the country .”

Techies can argue C band versus millimeter waves but I will bet that the Chinese, nothing if not commercially agile, will have Five G up and running in factories and the IoT and everywhere else while American pols rattle on about how China is an Existential Threat and the Pentagon needs more money for Space Command and diversity is more important than schooling anyway.

The shifting balance may already be visible. For example, America used to make superb aircraft such as the SR-71 and the F-16. Now it has the F-35, an engineering horror. The Boeing 737 MAX, its flagship product, has been grounded internationally because of poor engineering, second-rate software, and corporate lying about both.

America invented the microcircuit, and once dominated its manufacture. Today, American companies cannot make the seven nanometer chips now used in high-end telephones, and certainly not the five nanometer chips now coming online. Neither can China. Both countries buy them from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, TSMC, Interestingly, the Taiwanese are genetically and culturally Chinese. Washington has strongarmed TSMC into ceasing to sell to Huawei—the US still can’t make high end chips. Recently it strongarmed TSMC into agreeing to build a semiconductor fab in Arizona. Because America can’t.

Then there is TikTok, a hugely popular Chinese video app that threatened to break America’s lock on social media. Unable to compete, Washington decided simply to confiscate it on grounds that it might be used to spy on Americans. (Chinese intelligence is deeply interested in your daughter’s video of her cat.)

Parenthetically, technology seems to be shifting toward East Asia, with America being less ahead in things in which it is ahead and behind in others. Did I mention demographics?

Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China. Airlines are looking hard at hydrogen as a replacement for petroleum with no carbon emission.

China chooses landing site for its Tianwen-1 Mars rover. Whether the lander, currently en route, will land or crash and burn remains to be seen—it is China’s first time out, so to speak. In either case, that the country, forty years ago arguably the poorest in the world and thinking that making pencils was high-tech, has built a Mars lander is, well, weird.

“Four-seater electric aircraft makes first flight in north-eastern Chinese city of Shenyang”

Good for 180 miles, say the Chinese, expect more with improvements in batteries. Intended for short-haul flights, deliveries.

  • China to build world’s longest underwater high-speed rail tunnel”

China probably leads the world, and certainly leads the US, in civil engineering. With 20,000 miles of slow high-speed rail (180 mph) testing on fast maglev high-speed rail, (360 mph) the Three Gorges Dam, and the astonishing Daxing airport at Beijing, just opened. In America, infrastructure ages, trains look like something from a Fifties movie, transportation deteriorates as all the money goes to the military. Since the US doesn’t do much civil engineering, and hasn’t for many years, it would probably have to hire foreign firms should it decide to modernize. (See TSMC above.)

An interesting aspect of China’s use of technology is its understanding of the virtue of universality. In America if I want to communicate with someone I recently met, I have to determine whether we both have Facetime, or WhatsApp, or Skype, or Facebook, or this or that. Each of these does some things but not all things. Figuring it all out is a nuisance. In China, everybody, his dog, and all their downstream progeny have WeChat, which does everything that the American programs do, and then some. It greatly simplifies life.

The same is true of payments. Suppose that you and I go on a pub crawl late at night and end up betting on a bar fight. My guy loses. How do I pay you a hundred bucks? Cash? Don’t have it. Check? Don’t have one with me, and you would have to go to a bank to cash it. ATM? Late at night in a probably dangerous city. And so on. With WeChat Pay or Alipay, my phone gives the money to your phone in perhaps as much as two minutes. In China, four of five transactions are by mobile app. It works, and is fantastically convenient, because everybody has one or the other, and they are universally accepted.

  • Beijing Becomes Second Chinese City to Achieve Full Five G Coverage”

Those who follow China soon notice that when Beijing needs to decide something, it does, without fifteen years of talking, congressional infighting, and interminable lawsuits. When it decides that something is important, it does it. Right now. Commercially, the Chinese are quick and cutthroat. They have been called the Jews of Asia. And only a billion of them.

  • Beijing powers up first domestically-built nuclear reactor, construction of 6 more underway at home & abroad”

“Hualong One (HPR 1000) is the 3rd-generation nuclear power brand to which China has exclusive intellectual property rights.“

Washington tries to cripple Chinese technological advance by denying access to intellectual property, driving Beijing to design its own, thus creating a competitor for American firms.

  • China Tops 110 Million Five G Users in Less Than a year”

“The WS-10 Taihang is China’s first high-performance, high-thrust turbofan engine with intellectual property rights, Chinese Central Television reported.” (The J-10 is a fighter plane.)

A serious weakness of Chinese technology has been the inability to make jet engines. It still can’t make engines for airliners. Yet they advance. “Intellectual property rights” matter because Washington will do anything it can to cripple the development of a country of which it is mortally terrified.

  • China rolls out Long March 5 rocket for Chang’e 5 moon sample-return mission launch”

Impressive engineering, at least if it works, but not revolutionary. What is impressive is that so many tech advances come rapidly.

Chinese firm.

Various countries are toying with the idea of digital currency, but China seems most advanced, with several cities now in large-scale trials. Payments will be by mobile phone, with which the Chinese are familiar. It will not be a cryptocurrency, will not use blockchain, and will not require a bank account. This would make it appealing to the billions around the world who have smartphones but no bank account, and would tie them into a sort of distributed virtual China. Transfers will be instantaneous, avoiding the delays of the American-dominated SWIFT system and, at least potentially, allow bypassing of American sanctions. The downside will be vulnerability to detailed surveillance by China. For most people, to judge by online experience, convenience will outweigh concerns over privacy.

The digital yuan is typically Chinese in approach. Beijing decides to do something, figures out how, tests it and, if it works, runs with it. Boddaboom, boddabing, done. America would spend thirty years arguing, Wall Street banks would bribe congress to get control, different companies would squabble over standards, the ACLU would wade in about disparate impact, and conservatives would worry that the digital dollar might contain microchips to make them into communist slaves. (Wait. Maybe it’s vaccines that have the chips to make communist slaves.)

Much more speculative: suppose I go to Cancun, write a story on contract to Xinhua, email it to them, and payment in digital yuan appears in my phone. Being distracted, I might forget to report this to IRS. Let us say that hotels and stores serving Chinese tourists, who are getting thick on the ground, accept digital yuan. I would then be part of an ecosystem opaque to and independent of the US government.

Wilder still: Say that China sends five thousand workers to Zimbabwe to build a railroad, pays them in digital yuan that they can spend in a large company store. Local merchants, wanting some of the lucre, begin accepting the currency and Zimbabwean banks, sensing gravy, turn it into whatever Zimbabwe uses for money, for a cut. It becomes a de facto local currency as it is stable and usable outside of the country. The government might even decide to make it the, or a, national currency since it would be (a) reliable and not inflatable and (b) out from under American control.

But this may be delusional. And anyway, I am sure the Chinese haven’t thought of it.

  • Xi sends congratulatory letter on success of 10,000-meter sea trial of manned submersible Fendouzhe

That’s 33,000 feet. This is not Guatemalan engineering. A country that has the technology, money, and curiosity to undertake such projects is likely to be tough competition. China can afford it because it has a for-profit economy while America runs a huge trade deficit and debases the coinage by printing money to support a military empire.

(Bloomberg) –” State Grid Corp. of China has started up the world’s longest and most-powerful ultra-high voltage power line from its far northwest to the heavily populated east…The 1,100-kV direct-current Changji-to-Guquan project stretches 2,046 miles… The project… was approved in December 2015 and construction started the next month”

Stories of this sort are not sexy, except maybe to power engineers, but they are common in China and embody a lot of technology. Twelve gigawatts. Another one, kind of techy: “libaba On The Bleeding Edge Of RISC-V With XT910.” Certainly interesting, possibly important, but too long to go into here.

All anecdotal, but enough anecdotes become a statistic, enough points a picture. Nuff said.

NASDAQ green lights seedless watermelons to join company boards

Simon Black  December 3, 2020  Sovereign Valley Farm, Chile

NASDAQ is one of the largest stock exchanges in the world and home to most of the biggest names in tech.

Companies worth a total of $17 TRILLION– nearly the entire size of the US economy– are listed on the NASDAQ exchange, including Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, and Amazon.

You’d think the executives behind NASDAQ would be remarkably sharp people who understand what it takes to build and run a wonderful business.

But here we are again with another sign that the world has lost its mind.

NASDAQ has now joined with other woke warriors in trying to mandate that all of its listed companies meet minimum diversity requirements.

Specifically, the wonderful wizards of WOKEDAQ insist that every company should have at least one woman on its board, plus one person who is either an ethnic minority or LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ.

(I can only imagine how ridiculous annual reports will become once companies have to start disclosing details of the private lives of their new lesbian directors.)

WOKEDAQ justifies its position by claiming that “the benefits . . . of increased diversity are becoming more apparent. . .

I just love this statement. They’ve already taken it as a foregone conclusion that board diversity makes a better company.

I wonder if they’ve read any one of the dozens of studies showing that board diversity does not, in fact, improve a company’s performance.

The University of Pennsylvania’s famous Wharton School of Business, for example, analyzed dozens of studies of corporate diversity requirements that specifically demand women on company boards:

“Rigorous, peer-reviewed studies suggest that companies do not perform better when they have women on the board. Nor do they perform worse.

What a shocker! It turns out that the absence of a Y chromosome makes absolutely no difference in someone’s qualifications!

Could that possibly be because, deep down, we’re all made up of the same stuff… and someone’s sex organs and ethnicity are completely irrelevant when it comes to business and finance?

But WOKEDAQ can’t comprehend this simple truth.

What’s even more revolting is how WOKEDAQ defines terms in its proposal, like when they say that one Board Member should be an “underrepresented minority”.

Then they go on to define what constitutes an “underrepresented minority.”

It reminds me of the historic language from a past civilization that also used to be obsessed with ethnicity and sexual orientation– Nazi Germany.

At its annual rally in Nuremberg in 1935, the Nazi government drafted a strict legal code defining a Jew as someone who had at least three Jewish grandparents. It didn’t matter if you were a member of the Jewish faith; it was merely about your ancestry.

(I can only imagine some corporate board members will now feel compelled to take DNA tests so they can say, “Look! I’m 12% Native American! I’m still qualified to serve on the board!!”)

Ironically, being Jewish does not qualify as an underrepresented minority, at least according to WOKEDAQ’s definition.

In fact there are many other ethnicities, nationalities, orientations, and personal identifications that don’t fall under WOKEDAQ’s proposal.

If you’re a disabled veteran whose legs were blown off in Afghanistan, for example, your perspective isn’t diverse enough to be considered valuable by WOKEDAQ.

Ditto if you’re a refugee from Afghanistan who was orphaned by a US airstrike. WOKEDAQ doesn’t think your perspective is diverse enough either.

But if you identify as a seedless watermelon, WOKEDAQ is giving you the green light to join a corporate board and be showered with millions of dollars of stock options!

It’s so wonderfully progressive!

Honestly I cannot think of anything more insulting to a human being than to advance them, not due to their talent, but because of irrelevant identity features.

Competence and character should be the only things that matter. And those qualities exist irrespective of someone’s gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation.

Focusing on how someone ‘identifies’ totally misses the point. The only question to ask is ‘Who is the best person to do the job?’

And if the answer turns out be a Board of Directors that is comprised entirely of pansexual, non-binary Wiccan martians who identify as seedless watermelons, then so be it.

But WOKEDAQ wants to judge you by the color of your skin, not by the content of your character. If your skin tissue contains a certain amount of melanin, you’re qualified. If not, you’re unqualified.

WOKEDAQ also thinks it matters whether or not you have a penis. And they they REALLY think it matters if you have a penis, but identify as someone without a penis.

They care who you sleep with, who you’re attracted to, and all sorts of things that are completely meaningless in terms of your value as a human being.

No one should EVER be regarded as more qualified, or less qualified, simply because of their ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.

But to WOKEDAQ, these are the qualities that matter: sex organs and skin color.

They don’t care whether your skills can create more value for the organization, or whether you even have any experience.

And they damn sure don’t care who the shareholders, i.e. the actual OWNERS of the company, choose as their elected leaders.

Ironically as I’m about to hit SEND on this missive, I’ve just found out that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now selling horrendously overpriced $58 sweatshirts (plus shipping) that say “Tax the Rich.”

All proceeds are considered campaign contributions… so the Queen Marxist herself is relying on capitalism to promote socialism and keep herself in power, while one of the largest stock exchanges in the world tries to take away your right to choose your own company directors.

This pretty much sums up the world in 2020. And yet it only scratches the surface of how much more absurd everything is about to become.

To your freedom……….

Retired 3-star General McInerney calls for President Trump to invoke Insurrection Act, suspend Habeas Corpus, declare martial law and initiate MASS ARRESTS under military authority

Tuesday, December 01, 2020 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) Brannon House of WVWtv.com has published another bombshell interview with retired 3-star General Thomas McInerney, who is openly calling on President Trump to recognize severity of the cyber war assault on America by invoking the Insurrection Act, suspending Habeas Corpus (as Lincoln did) and initiate mass arrests under military authority.

The original, full interview is found at this link from WVWtv.com. We have posted a six-minute summary of the video highlights below, via Brighteon.com.

This call by Gen. McInerney, a highly-accomplished military veteran and loyal patriot, appears to be stemming from a realization that much of the existing government has gone rogue and is now colluding with enemies of the nation. State governors have gone rogue, court judges have gone rogue and state election officials have willfully engaged in coordinated, treasonous election rigging in order to achieve the overthrow of the executive leader, President Trump.

When government officials go rogue, and courts cannot be trusted, military authority can be invoked by the President, complete with mass arrests of treasonous actors, military tribunals that bypass the civilian court system, and the military seizure of all corporations that are actively working to undermine the United States of America. This would obviously include Big Tech and most of the left-wing media that has been complicit in election rigging and acts of journo-terrorism designed to plunge this nation into despair.

Highlights from this Howse / McInerney video

Here are my own highlights from this critical interview, and you can watch the six-minute highlight video below, or view the full interview at WVWtv.com.

All items in quotation marks are direct quotes from McInerney, during the interview.

  • What took place in America was not merely “vote fraud” but rather “cyber warfare.” These were acts of war against America, using cyber warfare weapons and techniques to overthrow the government via a rigged elections process.
  • McInerney calls for President Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act, suspend Habeas Corpus, declare martial law and deploy the military to seize and secure all the voting machines.
  • Six to ten states were coordinated via cyber warfare to change the outcome of the election. “These are treasonous acts.” Russia, China and Iran were also involved, adding to the treason.
  • FBI and DOJ are completely AWOL on all this, not lifting a finger.
  • Chris Krebs from CISA was lying when he claimed the election was “perfect.” This is “complicity to treason” and Krebs is part of the deep state.
  • President Trump must declare a national emergency based on the EO from Sep 12, 2018, which names “foreign interference” in US elections.
  • Trump should also invoke the Insurrection Act. He must suspend Habeas Corpus as Lincoln and FDR have both done in times of war.
  • The Democrats, Russians, Chinese and Iran, have committed blatant cyber warfare against America.
  • The President must “start arresting these people right away, [under] this national emergency. I would declare martial law.”
  • Officials from five swing states were engaged in “pre-planning” of “treasonous acts.” Not just fraudulent voting, but treason. “They have tried to overturn this government.”
  • Chris Miller is in place at the DoD because “the military active duty is going to have to suppress [Antifa and BLM].”
  • The President should suspend the Dec. 14th Electoral College meeting, and the inauguration of the new Congress on Jan. 6th.
  • Estimates that 85 million people voted for Trump.
  • Military tribunals are necessary because the regular courts are not capable of sorting this out.
  • The treasonous actors should be arrested and charged, subjected to military tribunals. This is the only system of justice that is capable of functioning without the current level of corruption.
  • Suspend the inauguration until this election is fully investigated.
  • We the People demand this action from the President.
  • “This is the last free election we will have” if we don’t expose this election fraud. And Georgia’s runoff election will be stolen using HAMMER, Scorecard and Dominion voting machines.
  • The Georgia runoff election needs to be suspended until the election fraud is fully investigated.
  • “This corruption cannot be accepted. It is treasonous, and we must have a thorough investigation of it.”
  • The President must support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. These are domestic enemies. “Like Stalin says, it doesn’t matter who votes, it matters who counts the votes.”
  • America’s judicial system people don’t understand how cyber warfare works. So they are missing a real grasp of the crimes and acts of war being committed against the United States.
  • “The ownership and leadership of Fox News is complicit in a treasonous act.”
  • U.S. Marshals should have seized all the Dominion servers the day after the election and secured them as forensic evidence.
  • People who changed votes in the machines should know that they will be prosecuted for treason and may face the death sentence.
  • The government is tracking the conversions of ballots to votes. “That’s where the manipulation is coming in. We’re tracking that. We have that information.”

Trump Tells Pompeo: Go Wild on Iran, Just Don’t Risk ‘World War III’

Trump has given some of his most hawkish officials, particularly Mike Pompeo, carte blanche to squeeze and punish the Islamic Republic as aggressively as they wish.

By Erin Banco and Asawin Suebsaeng

December 02, 2020 “Information Clearing House” – “Daily Beast” –  President Donald Trump may only have seven weeks left in office, but he’s given his top advisers the green light to batter the Iranian regime—anything that doesn’t hazard a full-on war before Joe Biden is inaugurated.

According to multiple U.S. officials familiar with the matter, in recent weeks Trump has taken a more passive role in personally overseeing Iran policy for the critical final months until Inauguration Day. One White House official last week described Trump as mostly “checked out” on this major foreign policy issue, having become consumed by his bumbling legal effort to steal the 2020 election amid the coronavirus pandemic, as well as by other his pet grievances of the moment.

But Trump has given some of his most hawkish administration officials, particularly his top diplomat, Mike Pompeo, carte blanche to squeeze and punish the Islamic Republic as aggressively as they wish in the coming weeks. All Trump asks is that they don’t risk “start[ing] World War III,” as the president has specifically put it in several private conversations with Pompeo and others, according to two senior administration officials.

That has left a host of options at the outgoing administration’s disposal—among them, a suffocating sanctions regime and a studied silence in the face of the assassination of Iranian nationals. Two officials who spoke to The Daily Beast said the administration is set to announce new sanctions on regime-linked companies and individuals in the coming weeks to solidify a years-long effort to paralyze Tehran’s economy.

Knowledgeable sources say those actions are designed to help fulfill various Trump officials’ long-brewing desire to make it more difficult for the Democratic president-elect to rekindle negotiations with Tehran and re-enter a nuclear deal. And it’s a scenario for which Biden lieutenants and allies have long prepared, having already factored into their Iran strategy that current U.S. officials would do nearly everything they could to undermine a revival of Obama-era relations between the adversarial nations.

Trump administration officials who spoke to The Daily Beast frequently point to Pompeo and Elliott Abrams, special representative for Iran, as the leaders of the administration’s last-ditch attempt at pummeling the regime.

Secretary Pompeo has been particularly forward leaning in the administration’s efforts to inflict damage on the Iranian government. In a recent trip to the Middle East, Pompeo met with leaders from Israel, the UAE, and Bahrain on ways all three countries could work together on countering the Islamic Republic. The trip followed on the heels of an announcement by the State Department that it had recently approved a massive sale of F-35 jets to the UAE. The deal has been widely viewed as a way to get Dubai to cooperate with Jerusalem on deterring Iran. And on Friday, Pompeo announced additional Iran-related sanctions, this time targeting Chinese and Russian entities for transferring sensitive technology and items to Iran’s missile program.

Both Pompeo and Abrams, officials say, are supportive of harsh measures, including the quiet backing of covert actions carried out by other actors. One other senior administration official pointed to Central Intelligence Agency Director Gina Haspel as being intimately involved in the administration’s clandestine strategy as it relates to Iran.

The president has repeatedly told his advisers that one of his priorities is to avoid a confrontation with Iran in which American military personnel would die. But Trump is comfortable letting Israel take the lead in targeting, or even slaying, Iranian regime figures in the closing weeks of his presidency, officials said. That includes Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, the country’s top nuclear weapons scientist, who was killed Nov. 27 while traveling in a convoy in the northern part of the country.

Two senior Trump administration officials said Israel was behind the attack, confirming global suspicions. One of those same officials, while they did not detail the level of involvement from the U.S., noted that America’s intelligence agencies often share information with Israel on Iran-related matters.

“The Israelis understand that between now and Jan. 20 they will need to inflict maximum damage on the [Iranian] regime… There’s obviously a close working relationship between Mossad chief Yossi Cohen and [CIA director Gina] Haspel.”

 Foundation for Defense of Democracies’ Mark Dubowitz

“There’s obviously a close working relationship between Mossad chief Yossi Cohen and Haspel,” said Mark Dubowitz, the CEO of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a right leaning think tank that’s advised the Trump administration on Iran.

Some of the president’s confidants have urged him not to draw too much attention to the killing. The administration has chosen to remain mostly tight-lipped regarding the scientist’s death. A source close to Trump said they had counseled the president in the past few days to avoid gratuitously tweeting about the assassination. Not only would it be a “bad look,” according to this source, it would likely undermine the administration’s public position of keeping the operation at arm’s length, if not farther away.

The two senior administration officials said discussions about taking more active measures to limit Biden’s administration on negotiating a new deal with Iran ramped up this summer and coincided with several of Israel’s covert operations, including the killing of al Qaeda deputy leader Abu Muhammed in Iran, and Israel’s planting of a bomb in one of Iran’s centrifuge facilities.

“The Israelis understand that between now and Jan. 20 they will need to inflict maximum damage on the regime,” Dubowitz said.

The Trump strategy over the next few weeks is clear, one of the senior administration officials said: Continue to use sanctions as a deterrence tool while providing intelligence to regional allies such as Israel that have a mutual goal of damaging the Iranian regime.

That plan isn’t so different from the one the Trump administration has put into action over the past four years. Since Trump took office in 2017, a cohort of top officials, advisers, and external advocacy groups have helped craft and implement a “maximum pressure” campaign on Iran that has relied primarily on the implementation of more than 1,000 sanctions on regime-linked officials and companies while also covertly targeting Tehran’s assets overseas.

The only difference now, officials say, is that the administration not only wants to punish Iran, it also wants to pen in President-elect Biden.

Individuals involved in the crafting of the Trump administration’s Iran policy believe the maximum pressure campaign will limit Biden’s ability to get back on track with Tehran, namely because some of the sanctions may be difficult to lift, especially those focused on human-rights and terrorism. Dubowitz and Trump administration officials familiar with Iranian sanctions said multinational corporations may be so risk averse to doing business with Iran now, following thousands of financial designations, that even if Biden lifts sanctions they will not engage in normal trade relations with Tehran.

Individuals familiar with Team Biden’s thinking say the president-elect has a clear strategy for dealing with Iran and sanctions come January. That plan rests heavily on Biden’s desire to return back to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)—the nuclear deal negotiated during the Obama administration—if Iran comes back into compliance.

“If Iran takes the bait, which is clearly the intention behind [the Farikhzadeh assassination], then it probably makes it impossible to return to the JCPOA and diplomacy,” said Jarrett Blanc, the former coordinator for Iran nuclear implementation in the Obama State Department. “If Iran doesn’t take the bait… I don’t know that it really changes the choices that confront the Biden team or Iran in January.”

Any negotiations between a Biden administration and Iran would include conversations about the lifting of some sanctions, two individuals familiar with the Biden team’s thinking on Iran said. But those sanctions would likely only be lifted if and when Tehran complies with a deal.

“Iran says it is prepared to come back in compliance and reverse some of the decisions it’s made. And the U.S. says it would lift some of the sanctions. [There’s] no legal bar to reverse them. Many of them were imposed for political reasons,” said one former senior Obama administration official. “It’s likely going to be a two-step approach for Biden—getting back in and then perhaps renegotiating a different, better deal.”

President Trump Makes an Unscheduled Speech on the 2020 Election

Video and transcript

Speech posted on Facebook December 02, 2020

If you read between the lines, Trump has essentially gave us notice about impending martial law and initiating a military coup to “take back the republic”, under the guise of voter fraud! Crazy stuff!!

December 03, 2020 “Information Clearing House” –

President Donald Trump: (00:00)
Thank you. This may be the most important speech I’ve ever made. I want to provide an update on our ongoing efforts to expose the tremendous voter fraud and irregularities which took place during the ridiculously long November 3rd elections. We used to have what was called, election day. Now we have election days, weeks, and months, and lots of bad things happened during this ridiculous period of time, especially when you have to prove almost nothing to exercise our greatest privilege, the right to vote. As President, I have no higher duty than to defend the laws and the Constitution of the United States. That is why I am determined to protect our election system, which is now under coordinated assault and siege.

President Donald Trump: (00:54)
For months, leading up to the Presidential election, we were warned that we should not declare a premature victory. We were told repeatedly that it would take weeks if not, months, to determine the winner, to count the absentee ballots and to verify the results. My opponent was told to stay away from the election, don’t campaign. “We don’t need you. We’ve got it. This election is done.” In fact, they were acting like they already knew what the outcome was going to be. They had it covered and perhaps they did, very sadly for our country. It was all very, very strange. Within days after the election, we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint the winner even while many key states were still being counted.

President Donald Trump: (01:44)
The constitutional process must be allowed to continue. We’re going to defend the honesty of the vote by ensuring that every legal ballot is counted and that no illegal ballot is counted. This is not just about honoring the votes of 74 million Americans who voted for me, it’s about ensuring that Americans can have faith in this election and in all future elections.

President Donald Trump: (02:12)
Today I will detail some of the shocking irregularities, abuses and fraud that had been revealed in recent weeks but before laying out just a small portion of the evidence we have uncovered, and we have so much evidence, I want to explain the corrupt mail-in balloting scheme that Democrats systematically put into place that allowed voting to be altered, especially in swing states, which they had to win. They just didn’t know that it was going to be that tough, because we were leading in every swing state by so much, far greater than they ever thought possible. While it has long been understood that the Democrat political machine engages in voter fraud from Detroit to Philadelphia, to Milwaukee, Atlanta, so many other places. What changed this year was the Democrat party’s relentless push to print and mail out tens of millions of ballots sent to unknown recipients with virtually no safeguards of any kind. This allowed fraud and abuse to occur in a scale never seen before. Using the pandemic as a pretext, Democrat politicians and judges drastically changed election procedures just months, and in some cases, weeks before the election on the 3rd of November.

President Donald Trump: (03:45)
Very rarely were legislatures involved and constitutionally, they had to be involved, but very, very rarely, and you’ll see that as we continue to file our suits, it’s constitutionally, absolutely incorrect what took place, even from a legal standpoint. Many states, such as Nevada and California sent millions of live ballots to every person on their voter rolls whether those individuals had requested ballots or not, whether they were dead or alive, they got ballots. Other states such as Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin, instituted universal absentee balloting right in the middle of an election year, sending absentee ballot requests forms to all voters on all rolls. It didn’t matter who they were. This colossal expansion of mail-in voting opened the flood gates to massive fraud. It’s a widely known fact that the voting rolls are packed with people who are not lawfully eligible to vote, including those who are deceased, have moved out of their state, and even our non-citizens of our country.

President Donald Trump: (05:05)
Beyond this, the records are riddled with errors, wrong addresses, duplicate entries, and many other issues. This is not disputed. It has never been disputed. Dozens of counties in the key swing states have more registered voters on the rolls than they have voting age citizens, including 67 counties in Michigan. All of this is evidence. In Wisconsin, the state’s Board of Elections could not confirm the residency of more than 100,000 people, but repeatedly refused to remove those names from its voter rolls before the election. They knew why, nobody else did. I knew why. They were illegal voters. It is a travesty that in the year 2020, we do not have any means of verifying the eligibility of those who cast ballots in an election and such an important election it is, or determining who they are, whether they live in the state or whether they’re even American citizens. We have no idea.

President Donald Trump: (06:21)
We have an in all swing states major infractions or outright fraud, which is far more in numbers or votes then we need to overturn the results of a state. In other words, in Wisconsin, as an example, where we were way up on election night, they ultimately had us miraculously losing by 20,000 votes. I can show you right here, that Wisconsin, we’re leading by a lot and then at 3:42 in the morning, there was this, it was a massive dump of votes, mostly Biden, almost all Biden. To this day, everyone’s trying to figure out, “Where did it come from?” But I went from leading by a lot, to losing by a little and that’s right here. That’s at 3:42 in the morning, that’s Wisconsin, a terrible thing, terrible, terrible thing.

President Donald Trump: (07:33)
But we will have far more, many times more than the 20,000 votes needed to overturn the state. If we are right about the fraud, Joe Biden can’t be president. We’re talking about hundreds of thousands of votes. We’re talking about numbers like nobody has ever seen before. Just as an example, in certain states, we’ll be down by, let’s say, 7,000 votes, but we’ll find later on 20,000, 50,000, 100,00, 200,000 discrepancies or fraudulent votes, and that includes votes that went through when they were not allowed to be seen by Republican poll watchers, because the poll watchers were locked out of the building. Or people that innocently came to vote on November 3rd, who were all excited about their vote, they were happy. They were proud to be citizens of the United States of America, and they went up and they said, “I’d like to vote.” They were told that they can’t vote. “I’m sorry,” they were told, “I’m sorry. You’ve already voted by mail-in ballot. Congratulations. We received a ballot, so you can no longer vote.”

President Donald Trump: (09:03)
They didn’t know what to do. They had no one to complain to, most just left and said, “That’s strange.” But many people complained and complained vehemently, and in a lot of cases, they filled out a provisional ballot, which was almost never used, but in virtually every case was a vote for Trump. In other words, they went in to vote and they were told that they voted and they didn’t vote. They left and they felt horror and they lost respect for our system. This happened tens of thousands of times all over the country. That’s how desperate the Democrats were. They would fill out ballots of people not even knowing if these people were going to show up. When they did show up, they said, “Sorry, you’ve already voted.”

President Donald Trump: (10:07)
On top of everything else, we have a company that’s very suspect. It’s name is Dominion, with the turn of a dial or the change of a chip, you could press a button for Trump and the vote goes to Biden. What kind of a system is this? We have to go to paper, maybe it takes longer. But the only secure system is paper. Not these systems that nobody understands, including in many cases, the people that run them. Although, unfortunately, I think they understand them far too well.

President Donald Trump: (10:46)
In one Michigan County, as an example, that used Dominion systems, they found that nearly 6,000 votes had been wrongly switched from Trump to Biden, and this is just the tip of the iceberg. This is what we caught. How many didn’t we catch? Are there 100s of other examples throughout the country? Are there 1000s? We just got lucky and they called it a glitch, but we found numerous glitches that evening. 96% of the company’s political donations went to Democrats, not surprisingly. Frankly, when you look at who’s running the company, who’s in charge, who owns it, which we don’t know, where are the votes counted? Which we think are counted in foreign countries, not in the United States, Dominion is a disaster. Election authorities in Texas have repeatedly blocked the deployment of Dominion systems due to concerns about security vulnerabilities and the potential for errors and outright fraud. Every district that uses Dominion systems must be carefully monitored and carefully investigated-

President Donald Trump: (12:01)
[inaudible 00:12:00] monitored and carefully investigated, but not only for the future. Right now, we’re worried about the present, and what went on with an election that we won without question. Under my lead, the Republicans won almost every state house in the United States, which they weren’t expected to do. We went up to 16 seats in the house. The numbers are still being tabulated, because there are nine seats that nobody really knows. They don’t know. Two weeks later, it’s still under consideration, because it’s a mess. Republicans were supposed to lose many seats, and instead they won those seats in the house, and a very important election that’s coming up will determine whether, or not we hold the Senate.

President Donald Trump: (12:59)
David Perdue and Kelly Leffler are two tremendous people. Unfortunately, in Georgia, they’re using the same horrible dominion system, and it’s already been out that, think of it, hundreds of thousands of absentee ballots have been requested. You check it out who’s requesting those ballots. The difference is, it’s one state, and we will have our eyes on it like nobody’s ever watched anything before, because we have to win those two Senate seats. The tremendous success we had in the House of Representatives, and the tremendous success we’ve had so far in the Senate, unexpected success all over the country, and right here in Washington.

President Donald Trump: (13:55)
It is statistically impossible that the person, me, that led the charge lost. The greatest pollsters, the real pollsters, not the ones that had us down 17 points in Wisconsin when we actually won, or the ones that had us down four or five points in Florida, and we won by many points, or had us even, and down in Texas, and we won by a lot, not those pollsters, but real pollsters. Pollsters that are fair, and honest said, “We can’t understand a thing like this. It’s never happened before. You led the country to victory, and you were the only one that was lost. It’s not possible.”

President Donald Trump: (14:43)
The speaker of the house of a certain state said, “Sir, I expected to lose my seat, and instead, because of you, and because of that incredible charge, and all of those rallies, we had a tremendous victory, and everybody knows it. You are much more popular than me, sir, except I got many more votes than you did, and it’s impossible that that happened. There is something wrong.” I’ll tell you what’s wrong, voter fraud. Here’s an example. This is Michigan. At 6:31 in the morning, a vote dump of 149,772 votes came in unexpectedly. We were winning by a lot. That batch was received in horror.

President Donald Trump: (15:44)
Nobody knows anything about it. By the way, there’s your line. This is one of many. Here’s what is normal, and all of a sudden, look at that. This is normal, normal. Look even here, normal, and then boom, all of a sudden, I go from winning by a lot to losing a tight race. It’s corrupt. Detroit is corrupt. I have a lot of friends in Detroit. They know it, but Detroit is totally corrupt. Look at this, look at this. That’s at 6:31 in the morning, unexpectedly came in. In the recent recount in Georgia, which means nothing because they don’t want to check signatures, and if you’re not going to check signatures in Georgia, it doesn’t work, but we have a secretary of state, and a governor who made it very difficult to check signatures.

President Donald Trump: (16:41)
Why? You’ll have to ask them, but without a signature match, or a check, it doesn’t matter. They found thousands and thousands of votes that were out of whack, all against me. This was during a recount that I didn’t even think mattered. They found many thousands of votes, and that recount didn’t matter. The one that matters is the one that’s going on now, that because of the fact it’s so close, they had to by law give another recount, but the recount has to be a recount where they check the signatures. Otherwise, they’re just checking the same dishonest thing. It won’t matter.

President Donald Trump: (17:22)
In this case, the signatures on envelopes are the only thing that is relevant. We will compare the signature on the envelope to the signatures from past elections, and we will find that many thousands of people signed these ballots illegally. The Democrats had this election rigged right from the beginning. They used the pandemic, sometimes referred to as the China virus, where it originated as an excuse to mail out tens of millions of ballots, which ultimately led to a big part of the fraud, a fraud that the whole world is watching, and there is no one happier right now than China.

President Donald Trump: (18:10)
Many people received two, three and four ballots. They were sent to dead people by the thousands. In fact, dead people, and we have many examples filled out ballots, made applications, and then, voted, which is even worse. In other words, dead people went through a process. Some have been dead for 25 years. Millions of votes were cast illegally in the swing states alone, and if that’s the case, the results of the individual swing states must be overturned, and overturned immediately. Some people say that’s too far out, that’s too harsh. Well, does that mean we take a precedent, and we’ve just elected a president where the votes were fraudulent?

President Donald Trump: (19:01)
No, it means you have to turn over the election, and everybody knows without going much further, and they’ve seen the evidence, but they don’t want to talk about it what a disaster this election was, a total catastrophe, but we’re going to show it, and hopefully, the courts in particular, the Supreme Court of the United States will see it, and respectfully, hopefully, they will do what’s right for our country, because our country can not live with this kind of an election. We could say, let’s go on to the next one, but no, we have to look also at our past. We can’t let this happen.

President Donald Trump: (19:43)
Maybe you’ll have a revote, but I don’t think that’s appropriate. When those votes are corrupt, when they’re irregular, when they get caught, they’re terminated, and I very easily win. In all states, I very easily win, the swing states, just like I won them at 10 o’clock in the evening, the evening of the election. We’re not looking to show you 25 faulty or fraudulent votes, which don’t mean anything, because it doesn’t overturn the state, or a fifty, or a hundred. We’re showing you hundreds of thousands far more than we need, far more than the margin, far more than the law requires. We can show many times what is necessary to win the state.

President Donald Trump: (20:34)
The media knows this, but they don’t want to report it. In fact, they outright refuse to even cover it, because they know the result if they do. Even what I’m saying now will be demeaned and disparaged, but that’s okay. I just keep on going forward, because I’m representing 74 million people, and in fact, I’m also representing all of the people that didn’t vote for me. The mail-in voting scam is the latest part of their four year effort to overturn the results of the 2016 election, and it’s been like living in hell. Our opponents have proven many times again and again, that they will say, and do anything to get back into power.

President Donald Trump: (21:28)
The corrupt forces who are registering dead voters and stuffing ballot boxes are the same people who have perpetrated one phony and fraudulent hoax after another. You’ve been watching it now for four years. These entrenched interests oppose our movement, because we put America first. They don’t put America first, and we’re returning power to you the American people. They don’t want America first, they only want power for themselves. They want to make money, that’s why they don’t want me as your president. I’ve been investigated from soon after I announced I was running for president. When I immediately went to number one in the Republican primary polls, the investigations never stopped. They went on for four years, and I won them all, I beat them all. Russia, Russia, Russia, the impeachment hoax, and so much more. Robert Mueller spent $48 million of taxpayer money investigating me for two and a half years, issued over 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants, issued 230 orders for communications records, and conducted 500 witness interviews, all looking to take me down. There was no collusion in the end, none whatsoever. Senator Marco Rubio, the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee stated, “The committee found no evidence that then candidate Donald Trump, or his campaign colluded with the Russian government.” And, I thank Senator Rubio for that statement.

President Donald Trump: (23:22)
Now, I hear that these same people that failed to get me in Washington have sent every piece of information to New York, so that they can try to get me there. It’s all been gone over, over and over again. For $48 million you go through tax returns, you go through everything. The New York attorney general, who recently ran for office campaigned without knowing me stating, “We will join with law enforcement and other attorneys general across this nation in removing this president from office.” I never met her. It’s important that everybody understand she’s…

President Donald Trump: (24:03)
… better. “It’s important that everybody understands”, she said, “that the days of Donald Trump are coming to an end.” And all it’s been is a big investigation in Washington and New York and any place else that can investigate because that’s what they want to do. They want to take not me, but us down. Then we can never let them do that. Everything has been looked at. A friend of mine, who’s very smart, said, “You’ve probably seen more than anybody else. You’ve probably been investigated more than anybody else. And for you to come out with a clean bill of health makes you probably the cleanest person in this country.”

President Donald Trump: (24:48)
Some people in this administration, but fortunately not all have been beaten down and disparaged. They just disappeared. Nobody knows what happened to them. Why aren’t they active? Why aren’t they involved? There’s so much to be involved in. The corruption is so rampant. They just couldn’t take it anymore. They were threatened by Democrats with impeachment and horrible things were said about them. And they’re good people. Even recently, the head of the GSA was hounded and harassed as she reported, like she has never been before. What can I say? We caught Comey cold, we caught McCabe cold. We caught them all. We’re still waiting for a report from a man named Durham, who I have never spoken to, and I have never met. They can go after me before the election as much as they want, but unfortunately Mr. Durham didn’t want to go after these people, or have anything to do with going after them before the election. So who knows if he is ever going to even do a report.

President Donald Trump: (26:11)
Ut if you look at the lies, and the leaks, and the illegal acts of behavior done by so many people, and their desire to hurt the president of the United States, something should happen. The hardest thing I have to do is explain why nothing is happening with all of these people that got caught spying on my campaign. It’s never happened before and it should never happen again to a president of the United States. All you have to do is watch the hearings and see for yourself. The evidence is overwhelming. The fraud that we’ve collected in recent weeks is overwhelming, having to do with our election. Everyone is saying, ” Wow, the evidence is overwhelming”, when they get to see it. But really it’s too late to change the course of an election. It’s too late to change the outcome.

President Donald Trump: (27:11)
In fact, there is still plenty of time to certify the correct winner of the election and that’s what we’re fighting to do. But no matter when it happens, when they see fraud, when they see false votes and when those votes number far more than is necessary, you can’t let another person steal that election from you. All over the country, people are together in holding up signs, “Stop the steal.” To understand how we will challenge this fraud, it is important to know the problems with mail-in balloting. Pennsylvania, Michigan, Nevada, Georgia, Arizona, and most other states allowed anyone to get an absentee ballot and cast their vote without showing any ID. The voting took place entirely on the honor system, no identification of any kind was required.

President Donald Trump: (28:11)
Most Americans would also be shocked to learn that no state in the country verifies United States citizenship as a condition for voting in federal elections. This is a national disgrace. No other advanced country conducts elections this way. Many European countries have instituted major restrictions on mail-in voting, specifically, because they recognize the nearly unlimited potential for fraud. Out of 42 European nations, all but two prohibit absentee ballots entirely for people who reside inside the country, or else they require those who need absentee ballots to show a very, very powerful ID.

President Donald Trump: (28:54)
Throughout the Democrat effort to dramatically expand mail-in voting, the Democrat party leaders were also, feverishly working to block measures, designed to protect against fraud, such as signature verification, residency verification, or voter ID. And citizenship confirmation was almost unthought of that we should ask for it. Can you believe this? These are not the actions of people who want fair elections. These are the actions of people who want to steal elections, who are willing to create fraud. The only conceivable reason why you would block common sense measures to verify legal eligibility for voting, is you are trying to encourage, enable, solicit, or carry out fraud.

President Donald Trump: (29:47)
It is important for Americans to understand that these destructive changes to our election laws were not a necessary response to the pandemic. The pandemic simply gave the Democrats an excuse to do what they have been trying to do for many, many years. In fact, the very first bill that house Democrats introduced when Nancy Pelosi became speaker, was it attempt to mandate universal mail-in voting and eliminate measures such as voter ID, which is so necessary. Dramatically eroding the integrity of our elections was the Democrats number one priority for a simple reason, they wanted to steal the 2020 presidential election. All of the Democrat efforts to expand mail-in balloting laid the groundwork for the systematic and pervasive fraud that occurred in this election.

President Donald Trump: (30:41)
In Pennsylvania, large amounts of mail-in and absentee ballots were processed illegally. And in secret, in Philadelphia, in Allegheny counties, without our observers present. They were not allowed to be present. In fact, they weren’t even allowed in the same room. They were thrown out of the building and they looked from outside in, but they had no way of even seeing, because there were no windows. And the windows that were there were boarded up. Democrats even went to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to block observers from receiving access. There is only one possible reason that the corrupt Democrat political machine would oppose transparency during the vote counting. It’s because they know they are hiding illegal activity. It’s very simple.

President Donald Trump: (31:32)
This is an egregious, inexcusable. And irreversible harm that stains the entire election, yet this unprecedented practice of excluding our observers, our vote watchers, as some people call them, occurred in Democrat run cities and key states all across the nation. Here are just some of the additional facts that we’ve uncovered. Many voters all across Pennsylvania received two ballots in the mail, and many others received mail-in ballots for which they never applied. So many get ballots, they didn’t even know what they were for. And again, so many received more than one ballot. In some cases, more than two ballots. And they happened to be, for the most part, Democrats.

President Donald Trump: (32:22)
In Fayette County, Pennsylvania, multiple voters received ballots that were already filled out. They didn’t know what happened. In Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, a poll watcher, overheard unregistered voters being told to return later to try to vote under a different name. Tens of thousands of voters across Pennsylvania were treated differently based on whether they were Republicans, or Democrats. Voters who submitted floored ballots in some Democrat precincts were notified and asked to fix their ballots, while Republican precincts, and in particular Republican voters, were not so notified which plainly violates the Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution.”If you are a Democrat, we’re going to fix up your ballot. make sure it’s perfect. If you are Republican, don’t even talk about it.”

President Donald Trump: (33:16)
In Michigan, a career employee of the city of Detroit, with the city workers, coaching voters to vote straight Democrat, while accompanying them to watch who they were voting for, violating the law and the sanctity of the secret ballot. You can’t do that. The same workers say she was instructed not to ask for any ID and not to attempt to validate any signatures. She was also told to illegally backdate ballots, many, many ballots, received after the deadline. This is something that is so unconstitutional and she estimates that thousands and thousands of ballots were improperly backdated by her and many others.

President Donald Trump: (34:05)
Other witnesses in Detroit also saw our election officials counting batches of the same ballots many times, as well as illegally duplicating ballots. One observer testified to seeing boxes and boxes of ballots, all bearing the same signature. Another observer in Detroit gave sworn testimony that he saw countless and valid ballots that did not belong to properly registered voters and then witnessed election workers in Wayne County entering fake birth dates into the system, in order to illegally count them. Witnesses of science wore an affidavit, so in other words, you go to jail if you lie, testifying that after election officials announced the last absentee votes had been received, a batch of tens of thousands of ballots arrived, many without envelopes, all voting for Democrats.

President Donald Trump: (35:02)
In Wisconsin, a record number of voters were categorized as indefinitely confined. A status reserved for severely disabled individuals, also for the elderly that allow them to vote without showing ID. Last year, approximately 70,000 people claimed this status statewide. This year, the number miraculously was nearly 250,000 voters, after election officials in Milwaukee and Dane County, a couple of the most corrupt political places in our country, urged citizens to improperly register under this status. And register they did in levels that don’t exist. In Wisconsin, there are approximately 70,000 absentee ballots that do not have matching ballot applications as required by law in Georgia, nine observers have testified to seeing countless irregular ballots without…

President Donald Trump: (36:03)
Testified to seeing countless irregular ballots without the creases or typical markings indicating that the ballots did not arrive in envelopes as required. A poll watcher in Fulton County estimated that approximately 98% of the large number of unusually pristine ballots that she witnessed were for Biden. Highly unusual number. In addition, thousands of uncounted ballots were discovered in Floyd, Fayette, and Walton counties weeks after the election, and these ballots were mostly from Trump voters. They weren’t counted. They were from Trump voters.

President Donald Trump: (36:43)
In Detroit, everybody saw the tremendous conflict and the horrible way that the two Republican canvassers were treated so horribly because they wouldn’t vote when they saw that 71% of the precincts didn’t balance. Also, there were more votes than there were voters. Think of that. You had more votes than you had voters. That’s an easy one to figure, and it’s by the thousands. In Arizona, in-person voters whose balanced produced error messages from tabulation machines were told to press a button that resulted in their votes not being counted. Also in Arizona, the attorney general announced that mail-in ballots had been stolen from mailboxes and hidden under a rock.

President Donald Trump: (37:37)
In Clark County, Nevada, where most of the state’s voters reside, the standards for matching a signature using the signature verification machine were intentionally lowered to allow large numbers of ballots to be counted that otherwise would never have passed muster. This machine was set at the lowest level. According to one report, in order to test the process, nine voters in Clark County cast ballots with intentionally incorrect signatures, and eight of the nine ballots were accepted and counted. They said you could sign your name as Santa Claus, and it would be accepted. Last week, the Clark County Commission threw out the results of a local election after the registrar reported finding, quote, “discrepancies that we can’t explain.” Also in Nevada, some voters were entered into a raffle for more than a dozen gift cards worth as much as $250 if they could prove they had voted.

President Donald Trump: (38:42)
This took place on Indian reservations. One of the most significant indications of widespread fraud is the extraordinarily low rejection rates for mail-in ballots in many key states. These are the states that I had to win. In swing state after swing state, the number of ballots rejected has been dramatically lower than what would have been expected based on prior experience. That means years and years of voting. In Georgia, just 0.2%, that’s substantially less than 1%, of mail-in ballots have been rejected. In other words, almost none have been rejected. They took everything. Nothing was rejected, practically, compared to 6.4% in 2016. There are those that think that 6.4 was a low number.

President Donald Trump: (39:36)
Think of it. Almost none were rejected. The previous election, 6.4% were rejected. We have seen similar declines in Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Michigan. Ballots weren’t rejected, especially if they happen to be in Democrat areas. These irregularities are inexplicable unless there is a deliberate effort to accept ineligible ballots or fraudulent ballots.

President Donald Trump: (40:06)
In Pennsylvania, the secretary of state and the state supreme court in essence abolished signature verification requirements just weeks prior to the election, in violation of state law. You’re not allowed to do that. It has to be approved by the legislature. A judge can’t do it. A state can’t do it. An official can’t do it. The only one that can do it is the legislature.

President Donald Trump: (40:33)
The reason for this is clear. They were not verifying signatures because they know the ballots have not been filled out by the voters in whose names they were cast. In other words, people filled them out that had nothing to do with the names on the ballot. A simple recount of the ballots under these circumstances only compounds the fraud. The only way to determine whether there was an honest vote is to conduct a full review of the envelopes in the relevant states. You will find that many of them, tens of thousands, have fraudulent signatures. A full forensic audit is required to ensure that only legal ballots from lawfully registered voters that were properly cast are included in the final count.

President Donald Trump: (41:25)
This election is about great voter fraud, fraud that has never been seen like this before. It’s about poll watchers who were not allowed to watch. So illegal. It’s about ballots that poured in, and nobody but a few knew where they came from. They were counted, and they weren’t for me. It’s about big leads on election night, tremendous leads, leads where I was being congratulated for a decisive easy victory. All of a sudden, by morning or a couple of days later, those leads rapidly evaporated. It’s about numbers of ballots that were sent that nobody know where they came from. It’s about machinery that was defective, machinery that was stopped during certain parts of the evening, miraculously to open with more votes.

President Donald Trump: (42:24)
It was about many other things, but above all, it was about fraud. This election was rigged. Everybody knows it. I don’t mind if I lose an election, but I want to lose an election fair and square. What I don’t want to do is have it stolen from the American people. That’s what we’re fighting for. We have no choice to be doing that. We already have the proof. We already have the evidence, and it’s very clear. Many people in the media and even judges so far have refused to accept it. They know it’s true. They know it’s there. They know who won the election, but they refuse to say, “You’re right.” Our country needs somebody to say, “You’re right.”

President Donald Trump: (43:12)
Ultimately, I am prepared to accept any accurate election result, and I hope that Joe Biden is as well. We already have the proof. We already have tens of thousands of ballots more than we need to overturn all of these states that we’re talking about. This is an election for the highest office in the greatest country in the history of the world. Every reasonable American should be able to agree, based on what we have already documented, that we need a systematic analysis of the mail-in ballots to review the envelopes. It’s about the signature. If they’re on the envelopes, we can only review the envelopes, and that will tell us everything.

President Donald Trump: (44:01)
This is the absolute minimum we should expect. This is not just about my campaign, although it has a lot to do with who’s going to be your next president. This is about restoring faith and confidence in American elections. This is about our democracy and the sacred rights that generations of Americans have fought, bled, and died to secure. Nothing is more urgent or more important. The only ballots that should count in this election are those cast by eligible voters who are citizens of our country, residents of the states in which they voted, and who cast their ballots in a lawful manner before the legal deadline.

President Donald Trump: (44:43)
Moreover, we must never again have an election in which there is not a reliable and transparent system to verify the eligibility, identity, and residency of every single person who casts a ballot, a very, very cherished ballot. Many very smart people have congratulated me on all we’ve done: the biggest tax cuts in history, regulation cuts, the biggest in history. We rebuilt our military. We took care of our vets like never before, Space Force, and so much more. Then they went on to say, as big and as important as these events were, the single greatest achievement in your presidency will be exactly what you’re doing right now: voter integrity for our nation. It’s more important than any of the things that we discussed.

President Donald Trump: (45:40)
If we don’t root out the fraud, the tremendous and horrible fraud that’s taken place in our 2020 election, we don’t have a country anymore. With the resolve and support of the American people, we will restore honesty and integrity to our elections. We will restore trust in our system of government. Thank you. God bless you. God bless America.
