Does not want a recount? What is he hiding?

LOL... He's not hiding anything. A recount will only prove that he lost a 2nd time. CHUCKLE 

If he thought there was a chance of winning, he would call for a recount. But he knows that it will just show again that she won.

They should redo the vote in that county.

I believe most of the people in Arizona and other states would agree with you.

Democrat researcher: Google shifting votes in my party's favor

'This is power that the worst dictators in history could have only dreamt of'

By Art Moore
Published November 4, 2022 at 8:15pm

Empirical research shows Google affected the outcome of the 2016 and 2020 elections in favor of Democrats, and the tech giant "has its digital thumb on the scale" of the current midterms, says Robert Epstein, a Democratic Party voter who was famed behavioral psychologist B.F. Skinner's last PhD student at Harvard.
 
In a WND video interview (embedded below), Epstein contended, however, that his ever-growing, unique "Nielsen rating-type" system of monitoring Google's manipulation of search results provides the solid evidence needed to stop the Big Tech behemoth in its tracks.
 
In the meantime, he said, the novel "Brave New World" has come to life.
 
"This is power that's never existed before in human history. This is power that the worst dictators in history could have only dreamt of," Epstein told WND.
 
"But this is real. This is occurring now."
 
Epstein recalled a lesser-known theme in President Dwight Eisenhower's famous "military-industrial complex" farewell address in 1961, warning of a "technological elite" that could control public policy without the public's knowledge.
 
The technological elite is now in power, he said, but there are ways to counter its tactics through technology itself.
 
By the end of 2023, he plans to have a "massive monitoring system" – a "digital shield" – in place with at least 20,000 field agents across 50 states.
 
"We will be monitoring in real time, and we will be exposing every single anomaly that we find," he said, adding that "sunlight is the best disinfect."
 
Epstein, a research psychologist for four decades, has served in various editorial positions at Psychology Today magazine and Scientific American MIND. He's the author of 15 books and more than 300 scientific and mainstream articles on artificial intelligence and other topics. He currently is a research psychologist at the non-profit American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology in Vista, California. His work can be seen at MyGoogleResearch.com.
 
'To do what we want them to do'
 
A 2016 Hillary Clinton supporter, Epstein in 2012 discovered what he calls the Search Engine Manipulation Effect (SEME), which describes a change in consumer and voting preferences through search engines, as WND reported in an interview story in 2018. His first scientific paper on SEME was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in 2015. SEME, he noted, also has been replicated by a research team at one of the Max Planck Institutes in Germany.
 
He observes SEME by "looking over the shoulder" of the volunteer field agents, who allow their searches to be monitored, similar to how Nielsen monitors TV viewing habits. Their "ephemeral experiences" online – including search results – are captured before they disappear.
 
In 2016, his team recorded 13,000 searches on Google, Bing and Yahoo, and found that Google – and not the others – was generating results in Hillary Clinton's favor through its search algorithm. He estimated the impact was 2.6 million to as many 10.4 million votes shifted to the Democratic candidate, without anyone knowing. In 2020, his team – expanding the scope to YouTube, Facebook and others – preserved 1.5 million searches, estimating some 6 million votes were shifted in favor of Joe Biden, for whom he voted.
 
Epstein emphasizes that not only does such a system of social engineering exist, there's evidence Google is intentionally deploying it.
 
In July 2019, for example, a senior software engineer at Google admitted the company is not politically neutral and that it manipulates search algorithms "to do what we want them to do." Epstein also noted that Google internal emails leaked to the Wall Street Journal showed the company deliberately created "ephemeral experiences" to change people's views about Trump's ban on travel from terrorist nations.
 
Epstein doubts that lawmakers will make a serious attempt to take on Big Tech, with Democrats "lavishly" supplied with Google cash – 95% of Big Tech donations go to Democrats – and Republicans having a distaste for regulation.

Nine-Hour Hearing Held in Delaware County After Officials Took a Detour from Counting Center into a Closed Building for 6 Hours on Election Day – UPDATED

By Jim Hoft
Published November 22, 2022 at 10:15am

As reported earlier – Pennsylvania election observers filed a complaint against the Delaware County Board of Elections after county officials took a detour on election night with the county’s ballots and v-drives into a closed building for six hours.  Poll watchers were prevented from entering the building at the time.
 
The county also deleted 194 voter registrations that were deleted after election day whose ballots were counted.
 
Here are several allegations that were filed in a complaint last week in Delaware County.
 
The Gateway Pundit reported on this last week.
 
A hearing took place Monday in Delaware County Pennsylvania.
 
Bill Lawrence reported on the 9-hour hearing that was held in Delaware County on Monday in front of Judge Barry Dozor on the election abnormalities.
 
* * * * * * * * *
 
Via Bill Lawrence Online.
 
Delco Election Concerns Aired In 9-Hour Hearing Before Judge Dozor — Delaware County Common Pleas Court Judge Barry Dozor presided over a remarkable nine-hour hearing, yesterday, Nov. 20, concerning the request by Leah Hoopes, Gregory Stenstrom and Nicole Missino that certification of the Pennsylvania county’s certification of votes from the Nov. 8 election be postponed until Nov. 28 so a hearing could be held at which evidence could be presented regarding election irregularities.
 
Well, the hearing was basically held but limited to specific allegations made in the plaintiffs filing, namely that 2,778 records of requests for mail-in ballots were deleted by the county; at least 194 voter registration records of individuals who voted were deleted; a partisan third-party was allowed to control and tabulate mail-in ballots; and the chain of custody was adulterated by detouring the election-night journey of the county’s physical ballots and v-drives for six hours into a closed building, where poll watchers were prohibited from entering, before continuing the delivery to the centralized counting center at the Wharf Building in Chester.
 
These claims were generally, and reasonably, explained by the County during the course of the day but other troubling points were brought up.
 
Judge Dozor, who deserves great praise, is expected to rule today.
 
Mrs. Hoopes and Stenstrom were certified poll watchers while Mrs. Missino was the Republican candidate for the 165th District in the State House.
 
They represented themselves. Attorneys are notably reluctant to take vote fraud cases in Delco for fear of repercussions. Deborah Silver, a previous attorney for Mrs. Hoopes and Stenstrom, faced an attempt to disbar her which reportedly cost her $20,000 to beat.
 
The plaintiffs lack of experience led them to make mistakes. They were unable to call expert witnesses including data expert Robert Martini, who was unable to present a report which we are including at the end of this article. Martini, as a fact witness, testified, however, that the machine tape in the 1st Precinct of Marple’s 7th Ward was missing a hashcode.
 
This is a legitimate concern. If it happened there it likely happened elsewhere and reveals a security issue.
 
Mrs. Missino was unable to get into the record the voters who told her that their votes were never tallied.
 
Joan Weber, an entrepreneur who had been director of finance for Conde Nast, was unable to testify regarding the strange shrinkage in the tally for mail-in ballot requests she recorded from the state’s OpenDataPa website.
 
Julie Yu, whose report of election day ballots being taken unexpectedly from the Springfield Library dropbox to the county-owned “Flagship Building” at 2 W Baltimore Pike, in Media, might have made the most significant claim. The ballots had been expected to go to the counting center at the Wharf in Chester. The change caused suspicion regarding the the chain of custody.
 
James Allen, the county director of election operations, testified the change was due to Act 88 that was passed by the state legislature in July.

Election Fraud 2.0! O.K., So What Are You Gonna Do About It?

By Joe Hoft
Published November 20, 2022 at 9:20am

Guest post by Jay Valentine reprinted with permission from American Thinker.
 
“All right, they’re on our left, they’re on our right, they’re in front of us, they’re behind us…they can’t get away this time.”  
 
–Chesty Puller, United States Marines
 
Only in politics could 2022 players be surprised by the “innovation” of a mail-in ballot-led strategy exactly the same as was used in 2020. 
 
If more than 20 million people watched Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary, 2,000 Mules, why didn’t candidates prepare for phantom voters?
 
Political people are really stupid.
 
In 2020, Democrats set up corner mail-in ballot drop boxes, harvested thousands of floating ballots, and live, on video tape, dropped them off at ballot-gathering stations.
 
In 2022, only the Republican Party, truly The Stupid Party, could be caught flat-footed with its opponents doing exactly the same thing, exactly the same way, at full scale, on video, again.
 
It is exasperating to listen to the moaning in Arizona where the Maricopa County election fraud factory did precisely the same thing in 2022 as it did in 2020 – stealing an election from a group of promising candidates.  They even had their candidate skip debates the way Joe Biden did, hiding in her basement!
 
Let’s ask the question nobody is asking:  Why were candidates spending millions on ads and organizations while ignoring the work of cleaning up the voter rolls?
 
The Democrat, leftist ballot strategy has one absolute, must have, ingredient: Floating ballots.
 
A floating ballot is the one that goes to 434 Prescott Street for Bill Jones.  But the address is an apartment building, so it cannot be delivered because it does not indicate that Bill is Unit 34.  That free-floating ballot is collected by someone – and eventually voted.
 
This happens in almost every state in about every multi-unit building.  We saw it in many states in 2020 and 2022.
 
In 2022, innovative Republican candidates, a very few, mailed postcards to every voter in their congressional district.  The cards that came back = NON-DELIVERABLE ADDRESS.  They challenged ballots sent to these addresses, and perhaps they sent volunteers to find some of those accumulated ballots.
 
We know a voter integrity team in Georgia, working from their kitchens, doing similar “analysis.”
 
People, this isn’t hard.  This isn’t expensive.  This is mandatory!  Find the phantoms!
 
Why do we not see every major political campaign have an outreach to identify phantoms and stop the ballot-harvesting?  Clue: The Republican organizations are as into keeping phantoms on the voter rolls as the Democrat leftists.
 
Don’t believe me?
 
Mike Lindell hired us to work with the voter integrity team in Wisconsin right after 2020 election.  Sheriff David Clarke called me when I was in Tucson and asked if we would apply Fractal Programming, which is described at www.Omega4America.com, to voter rolls.
 
Lindell is as colorful in real life as he is selling pillows on television and he’s equally passionate.
 
Let me take you there.
 
Mike called me at 8:00 p.m. asking me to run the voter rolls for one of the reddest states.  The next morning, I had to present the voter roll phantoms to its Secretary of State, via a Zoom call.
 
I had two hours to find at-scale phantom voters in one of the reddest states and present them to a group of 20 lawyers after my first cup of coffee the following morning.
 
It wasn’t hard.
 
Voters registered in prison.  People voting from homeless shelters – for 20 years.

Google attempts to deter ‘election fraud’ searches with suggestions like ‘ejection fraction’

Google appears to be defying its normal algorithm in its auto-suggested completions for searches that begin to spell out ‘election fraud,’ and it cuts suggestions entirely for a fully typed ‘election fraud’ search.

Emily Mangiaracina
Thu Nov 17, 2022 - 4:35 pm EST

(LifeSiteNews) — Google appears to be attempting to deter searches on “election fraud” by using auto-fill suggestions unrelated to elections.
 
Upon typing “election fr” or “election “fra” into Google’s search engine, instead of auto-suggesting phrases that begin with “election,” as would be typical, Google primarily suggests variations of “ejection fraction.”
 
After typing in “election frau” or “election fraud,” Google’s auto-filled suggestions disappear entirely, another unusual occurrence.
 
Ordinarily, during a Google search, suggestions are automatically listed to complete the already-typed letters with words, phrases or sentences understood to be commonly searched spin-offs of what has already been typed.
 
This is clearly seen, for example, when one types in “election gu,” which Google then suggests can be completed with “election guide 2022,” or “election guidelines sample,” “election guy,” etc.
 
Google’s above-noted auto-completions “ejection fraction” would theoretically ordinarily be because searches on “election fraud” are so rare as to be virtually nonexistent.
 
This seems not to be the case, since many Americans have recently openly shared their belief that fraud affected some of the results of this month’s midterm elections, such as in the case of Arizona’s gubernatorial race.
 
Indeed, a Rasmussen Reports poll conducted during and after the 2022 U.S. midterm elections found that 57 percent of the U.S. “likely voters” surveyed said they think it is likely that cheating affected election outcomes, including 30 percent who believe that it is “very likely.”
 
An alternative explanation is that Google is manually attempting to suppress searches on “election fraud.” This appears to be corroborated by the auto completion of other search engines when typing in the first letters of “election fraud.”
 
The private search engine Startpage lists “election fraud” as the first auto-suggested completion of “election f”:
 
Microsoft’s Bing search engine, which ranks second to Google in popularity, with 15 percent of U.S. online searches, auto-fills “election fra” with variations of “election france” and “election francaise.” These suggestions persist at “election frau,” with only a couple of suggestions including mention of election fraud, and not for the U.S. 2022 midterms.
 
This is not the first time evidence of Google’s biased interest in election outcomes has emerged. Democratic Party voter Robert Epstein recently shared in an interview that empirical research shows Google affected the outcome of the 2016 and 2020 elections in favor of Democrats. Epstein also said he believes the tech giant “has its digital thumb on the scale” of the current midterms.
 
A 2016 Hillary Clinton supporter, Epstein in 2012 discovered what he calls the Search Engine Manipulation Effect (SEME), which describes a change in consumer and voting preferences through search engines, as WND reported in an interview story in 2018.

It should be NOTED that the "official" count had Hobbs winning over Lake by 6/10 of 1%. That is telling and very convenient, because a 5/10 of 1% differential triggers an automatic recount... which didn't happen!!!

Trump Demands Kari Lake 'Be Installed' as Arizona Governor Due to 'Criminal Voting Operation'

By Mike Miller
5:00 PM on November 28, 2022

Former President Donald Trump on Monday again rejected the results of Arizona’s gubernatorial election, calling for Kari Lake to be declared the winner, and promptly “be installed” as governor, due to what Trump characterized as a “criminal voting operation.”
 
The gubernatorial contest has been called for Katie Hobbs, with the current count showing that defeated Lake by a little more than 17,000 votes out of more than 2.5 million ballots cast.
 
Here’s The Donald, via his Truth Social post:
 
Massive numbers of ‘BROKEN’ voting machines in Republican Districts on Election Day. Mechanics sent in to ‘FIX’ them made them worse. Kari had to be taken to a Democrat area, which was working perfectly, to vote. Her opponent ran the Election.
 
This is yet another criminal voting operation — SO OBVIOUS. Kari Lake should be installed Governor of Arizona. This is almost as bad as the 2020 Presidential Election, which the House Unselect [sic, but cute] Committee refuses to touch because they know it was Fraudulent!
 
I’m not going to litigate the Arizona gubernatorial election, principally because I have no proof that a “criminal voting operation” occurred. Lake, who was mightily endorsed by the former president, also suggested on Truth Social that her election loss was anything but fair:
 
Arizonans have no Faith & Trust in our Elections. Our Election Officials are incompetent (…or worse) They have failed us. The Fake News ignores our Fake Elections and expect [sic] us to just ‘move on.’ We won’t.
 
Maricopa County is home to roughly half of all Arizona voters.
 
Granted, Katie Hobbs is a box of rocks, but assuming there were voting irregularities in the Grand Canyon State, we don’t live in a country where losers of races are declared winners by some, and promptly “installed in office,” as a result. That’s not the way it works in America — nor should it be.
 
As we’ve previously reported, thousands of voters reported having problems casting a ballot in Maricopa County on Election Day, leading to an inquiry from the Arizona Attorney General’s office and a subpoena from Arizona Sen. Kelly Townsend. (The county replied to the AG’s office late Sunday.) In addition, Lake’s team filed a lawsuit in state court on Wednesday against Maricopa County, demanding information on voters whose ballots were affected by voting machine problems.
 
Here’s more, via the New York Post:
 
[Lake’s] fellow Republican Abe Hamadeh, who ran for attorney general and lost by 510 votes, has filed a lawsuit against his Democratic opponent as well as state and local officials, seeking to overturn his defeat.
 
Arizona counties had until Monday to certify their vote totals. Election officials in Republican-dominated Mohave and Cochise counties have said they planned to hold off on certifying the results.
 
The chairman of Mohave County’s Board of Supervisors, Ron Gould, told Reuters that his county delayed certifying last Monday because his board was waiting to see Maricopa’s explanations for what happened to the ballots of its affected voters.
 
Another fine mess, for sure.
 
The Bottom Line
 
While I’m sure that all of the above, will set the hair of some on fire, facts matter. Accusations are one thing, and serious accusations must be thoroughly investigated, more so to ensure election integrity and voter confidence than to support any one candidate.
 
On the other hand, unfounded allegations are just as dangerous.
 
As the late comedian George Carlin wisely observed, “never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.” Actual election results sometimes matter far less to one side or another, based solely on the perception of an outcome. As the old axiom says, perception is more important than facts.

I want in person voting only. Military can mail in or if it is a person with a disability that cannot leave the house. These are the only exceptions. I also know this will never happen.

Military and/or other Americans who live or work abroad...

Push for it in your city, your precinct, your county, your state!

Promise elected officials if they don't go for in person voting... and don't get rid of the machines, that you will vote them out of office! If enough people tell their elected officials that, they may just start to understand the gravity of the issue.

Edited to add: And that is irregardless of your political affiliation. I think we all want fair elections.
