    So these audits are still happening, but in the case of Pennsylvania, two have already been conducted with no change to the result (a third is being planned), and Arizona's has yet to be released.

    If the "Deep State" did rig the election, I don't think it would allow its fraud to be revealed in an audit. Trump needed to blow up the whole game by doing what he said he'd do and conduct a reinvestigation into 9/11 and order an overhaul of the security agencies like the CIA (as JFK wanted); aka remove (((fifth column))) elements from the secret service. While he was at it, as I discovered last week, open an investigation into the moon landings lol. It would be a tumultuous period, but being honest is important, and in the info age, we can discover the truth anyways on the internet. The economic shock from the backlash from the rest of the world would be difficult at first, but this would be mitigated by finally forming what the Russians want - an alliance. No more spending trillions on the military - that wouldn't be needed if Russia was our ally. We could shift that money and effort towards more useful purposes, and our power over the world wouldn't change with their help.
    If ballots have been added into the process early on this won't be picked up by an audit. It's also interesting that the Steal was done in a way, that one can sense that they have done it, while some "plausible deniability" is maintained. This on the one hand lets people know that something drastic is happening, on the other hand it makes them powerless, because despite evidence, they will get away with it.

    On the bright side, this will alienate large portions of the population from the main-stream. Something that can be an opportunity. Problem is lack of structure, vision and values.

    Trump Reportedly Refuses to Share Election War Chest to Help Giuliani With $1.3 Bln Dominion Lawsuit



    The former New York mayor and senior Trump legal confidant has had a rough several months, having his license to practice law suspended in NY and DC, seeing his home and office raided by the FBI, and getting hit with a defamation suit by America’s top voting machine maker, all over his work on the now former president’s election fraud lawsuits.

    Donald Trump is reportedly refusing to share his sizable election war chest to help pay for Rudy Giuliani’s legal fees as the ex-attorney and erstwhile personal friend faces disbarment and a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit by Dominion Voting Systems.

    According to recent media reporting, citing fresh federal campaign filings, Trump raised tens of millions of dollars from supporters over the past six months, and is now sitting on almost $102 million in cash – the strongest showing among any other Republican politician and the party itself, with over $56 million of that money collected in 2021.

    However, according to New York Times correspondent Maggie Haberman, allies of long-time Trump confidant Rudy Giuliani are “aghast” that the former president isn’t helping his ex-attorney with his sizable legal costs as he is assailed from all sides by Dominion and the federal government.

    “Giuliani’s friends say he is saying he is close to broke, and his interview with [NBC New York] makes clear he knows he’s in legal jeopardy,” Haberman suggested.

    According to the observer, Trump’s aides don’t see a way to help pay the former New York mayor’s legal bills in a manner that’s not “problematic for Trump,” given that Giuliani may have taken “actions a lawyer should have known were problematic, even if the client wanted it.”

    On top of his $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit by Dominion, Giuliani is also under investigation over claims by the Justice Department that he may have worked as an unregistered lobbyist for Ukraine and illegally pressured Kiev to probe the Biden family’s potential illegal pay-to-play activities in that Eastern European country.

    Last month, pro-Democratic media gleefully reported that Giuliani’s legal defence fund had raised just $9,798, a fraction of its $5 million goal, to help cover the embattled lawyer’s legal costs.

    Additionally, authorities in New York State and Washington, DC have forced Giuliani to stop practicing law and threatened to strip him of his law license entirely, depriving him of a way to earn money as a lawyer amid the legal and financial pressures arrayed against him.

    Publicly, Giuliani has remained defiant, telling NBC New York Saturday that he was “more than willing to go to jail if they put me in jail,” and adding that those who imprisoned him would “suffer the consequences in heaven” for their sins because he “didn’t do anything wrong.”

    ‘Lamb being led to slaughter’: Trump slams Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal



    Former President Donald Trump slammed the Biden administration’s bungling of the Afghanistan evacuation as a “lamb being led to slaughter” because US troops were withdrawn from the country first, leaving American citizens at the mercy of the Taliban.

    “You had to get the people out of there. Can you imagine having your military go home and leaving all those people. That’s called the lamb being led to slaughter,” Trump said Wednesday on Fox Business.

    “So your military goes home, and they forgot to let those divisions out, they forgot to protect the embassy,” the former commander-in-chief said about the US military abandoning the US Embassy in Kabul as the Taliban took control of the capital city.

    Trump said President Biden’s inability to evacuate the thousands of American citizens still in the country puts them at risk of being used as hostages by the Taliban.

    “But here’s the problem: Withdrawing is the right thing to do, but the way they withdrew will go down in infamy. There has never been a worse withdraw. There has never been a more stupid group of people doing a withdraw. This is unbelievable when a military leaves first and then they say, ‘Oh, we have to go back and get ours,'” Trump told host Maria Bartiromo.

    He compared the conditions Biden created in Afghanistan to the Iranian hostage crisis during President Jimmy Carter’s time in the White House.

    “We’re talking about very, very hostile people. These are people that are now saying, ‘We have 40,000 American hostages. What are we going to do with them.’ That’s the way they think,” Trump said about the Taliban.

    “And if you think this ended yesterday, if you think there’s ended yesterday, you haven’t seen anything. And this is going to be nothing compared to Jimmy Carter with his hostages. He lost because of it. Jimmy Carter with his hostages is a peanut — a good term when we’re talking about Jimmy Carter — it’s a peanut compared to what’s happening here. They have 40,000 people, not to mention all the other Afghans who we were supposed to help,” the former president said.

    “Can you imagine having your military go home and leaving all those people. That’s called the lamb being led to slaughter.”

    Trump said the military should have been the last to leave Afghanistan.

    “This is like the captain jumping off the ship as the ship is thinking. He says, ‘I’m getting out of here — just forget the passengers.’ You take the people out first — and always the Americans first, as far as I’m concerned. I don’t know, maybe I’m old-fashioned, but always the Americans first,” he continued.

    And then we’ll take some people that helped us. But we can’t take hundreds of thousands of people, and then they have their families and that, and these were highly paid people, they were there, they knew what they were doing,” he said.

    He also criticized his successor for creating the conditions that allow Taliban fighters to take the US weapons provided to Afghan security forces and to take over the Bagram air base.

    Trump said he wouldn’t have let the insurgents get their hands on any US materials.

    “But you got to get your people out, and you got to get them out first. Then you take your equipment out, and after you take your equipment out, you bomb the hell out of the fort so nobody else can use them — because I was going to do that. I said, ‘I want every one of these forts’ — it will take a plane, two hours — and you bomb the hell out of them. Now they’re being used by the Taliban, it’s just not even believable,” he said.

    Trump said the US left billions of dollars worth of equipment in the country in its rush to leave Afghanistan.

    “The people have to come out of the country first. Then you got to get all your equipment. We have billions of dollars of equipment — they have brand new Blackhawk helicopters. They have everything. And last to come out has to be the soldiers, and I frankly would have bombed every one of the forts because I knew they weren’t going to let you do this,” he said.

    The trumpists come over more and more unstylish in their memes. Just like someone loosing power and still trying to be bold in the process.



    Seen it in other contexts, people making bold proclamations without having the ability to deliver upon it.

    How much proof does the common man really need?







    Notice how it's almost always negroes doing this at the lower levels. They couldn't figure out how to mount the sophisticated part of the plan, but destroying Trump votes and running Biden votes multiple times is no problem, and they have zero moral compunctions about doing it.

    Trump wants Pulitzers awarded for Russia collusion reporting revoked



    Former President Donald Trump called on the Pulitzer Board to rescind the prizes given to the New York Times and the Washington Post for their coverage of the Russian collusion story, saying they were based on “false reporting.”

    Trump, in a statement released Sunday morning about the letter addressed to Bud Kliment, the interim administrator of the awards, said he wants the board to rescind the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting presented to the New York Times and the Washington Post because the reporting was based on “false reporting of a non-existent link between the Kremlin and the Trump Campaign.”

    “As has been widely publicized, the coverage was no more than a politically motivated farce which attempted to spin a false narrative that my campaign supposedly colluded with Russia despite a complete lack of evidence underpinning this allegation,” he said in the letter.

    The former president, who also called for the prizes to be revoked in March 2019, pointed to the indictment last month of Michael Sussmann, a former rep for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, by special counsel John Durham.

    Durham alleges that Sussmann lied to the FBI when he tipped them off in September 2016 to a possible link between the Trump campaign and Alfa Bank, which has ties to the Kremlin.

    The Sussmann indictment “serves as a damning repudiation of the media’s obsession with the collusion story. The indictment pointedly accuses Mr. Sussman of making false statements to the FBI when he presented ‘evidence’ purporting to show secret communications between my organization and the Russia-based Alfa Bank,” Trump said in the letter.​

    Sussmann told the FBI that he was relaying the information as a “good citizen,” but Trump said the indictment reveals that Sussmann was “working with other Democrats and billing his time to the Clinton campaign.”​

    H​e said the indictment also shows ​t​hat​ “the FBI’s investigation revealed that the e-mail server at issue was not owned or operated by the Trump Organization but, rather, had been administered by a mass marketing email company that send advertisements for Trump hotels and hundreds of other clients.”

    The former president and his allies have decried the Russian collusion investigation as a “witch hunt.”

    In 2019, special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of investigators found no evidence of Trump conspiring with Moscow.

    Trump noted that the Pulitzer Board praised the newspapers for “deeply sourced, relentlessly reported coverage in the public interest that dramatically furthered the nations’ understanding of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and its connections to the Trump campaign, the President-elect’s transition team, and his eventual administration.”​

    He said the articles focused on the “now-debunked Russia collusion conspiracy theory” and contained information based on anonymous sources.

    “The headlines themselves were extremely sensational and leaned heavily on unsubstantiated anonymous sources. For example, much of the information contained in these articles were credited to ​’​people with knowledge,​’​ ​’​current and former officials,​’​ ​’​some senior U.S. officials,​’​ and other vaguely defined individuals​,” the letter said.

    “As a result, the public was deprived of an independent means of assessing their credibility, their potential for political bias, and the source of their knowledge,” Trump continued.

    Trump says the prizes carry a “level of reverence” that the reporting being honored is “deemed credible, well-sourced and trustworthy.”

    “When it becomes apparent that a Pulitzer Prize-winning work was based on shoddy, dubious and manifestly false reporting – as is the case here – the Pulitzer Prize Board must react accordingly​,” Trump said.

    ​He went on to say that he hopes the New York Times and the Washington Post “voluntarily surrender” the awards.

    But if they do not, “I would expect that you will take the necessary steps to rectify the situation, including stripping the recipients of their prize and retracting the false statements which remain on the Pulitzer website. Without holding the recipients to such a high standard of accountability, the integrity of the Pulitzer Prize namesake stands to be wholly compromised​.”

    The Pulitzer Board did not immediately respond to a request for comment. ​

    Trump Asked Whether Ex-Vietnamese PM Had Name 'Fook You' Ahead of Meeting With Him, Book Claims



    In recent years, many former assistants and officials who previously worked in the Trump administration have written tell-all books about the 45th president, painting the Republican and his Cabinet in an unflattering light. The politician has rejected most of them as “lies”.
    Former US President Donald Trump asked whether the ex-Vietnamese prime minister’s name was pronounced “Fook You", claims the new book “Nothing is Impossible: America's Reconciliation with Vietnam”, penned by Ted Osius, who served as US ambassador to Vietnam from December 2014 to November 2017.

    Excerpts from the book were published in Salon ahead of its 15 October release. Mr Osius alleges Trump made the remark ahead of his meeting with Prime Minister Nguyen Xuân Phúc.

    "What's his name?" the Republican asked.

    "Nguyen Xuân Phúc", a senior National Security Council official said. "Rhymes with 'book'".

    "You mean like Fook You?" President Trump asked. "I knew a guy named Fook You. Really. I rented him a restaurant. When he picked up the phone, he answered 'Fook You'. His business went badly. People didn't like that. He lost the restaurant”, Trump said, as cited in the book.

    The former official writes that all those present in the room "laughed dutifully". Mr Osius then proceeds to describe the negotiations between Trump and his aides that reportedly took place.

    The Republican asked then-US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to “bring the US trade deficit with Vietnam to zero in four years” after he learned that Hanoi had a [$32 billion] trade surplus with Washington.

    "Lighthizer nodded, perhaps not knowing how to reply. It was an impossible task. He then tried to shift the president's focus", Osius writes.

    The former ambassador also described his conversation with former senior adviser to the president Jared Kushner. The two discussed a deal on the construction of a new US embassy in Vietnam. Kushner seemed surprised when he heard that the building could cost $500 million to build.

    "Why are we spending so much? If we're going to give them that, we should get something back", Osius cites the ex-adviser as saying. "I wondered if he understood that we were trying to build a new embassy for the United States and not for Vietnam. ‘Our current leased space is dilapidated', I told him". "It was supposed to be temporary twenty-two years ago. It's not safe. A truck bomb could drive right up to it and blow us up in a moment. Like in Benghazi”, the ex-ambassador wrote.

    Ted Osius claims that just like his father-in-law, Jared Kushner stressed that the Vietnamese leadership needs to bring the trade deficit to zero "If they're going to get that [embassy]". "I repeated my argument about security for American citizens, but Kushner's dark eyes had shifted elsewhere. He was no longer listening", Osius writes.

    Ted Osius resigned in November 2017 in protest against the Trump administration’s proposal to deport Vietnamese refugees back to their home country.

    These new findings from the Pima County mail-in ballot analysis are both damning and determinative. They show that fictitious votes were inserted into the system.

    The Gateway Pundit reported that AZ State Rep and candidate for Arizona Secretary of State, Mark Finchem hinted at these findings at the last Trump rally, and he is fighting for a full forensic audit of Pima County.


    Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
    October 15, 2021


    A new analysis of mail-in ballots in Pima County, Arizona means the election was rigged and stolen from the Republican Party in 2020, and in particular, its Presidential Candidate.

    The analysis derived from publicly available election data, shows staggering anomalies and fictitious votes in Pima County's mail-in returns, making it clear they stuffed the ballot box (in some precincts with more ballots than were ever sent!).

    Your Republican candidate was steadily outperforming the Republican share of the ballots by 3%, while Joe Biden was underperforming Democrats by 3%. But when mail-in ballots started pouring in way higher than normal (at over 87%), this trend flipped. In other words, when it was clear that Trump was going to win, that's when they swung into action. As more mail-in ballots poured and increased by 1%, Trump's performance decreased by 1% while Biden's increased.


    As more and more mail-in ballots were stuffed into the system, Biden's numbers shot way up. But they overplayed their hand, and got caught. Two precincts in Pima had over 100% turnout for mail-in ballots - which is impossible - and 40 precincts had over 97% returned. The national mail-in ballot return rate was 71%, but in Pima County the mail-in ballot return rate was 15% higher, and 19% higher than all the counties combined in the entire state of Arizona. One precinct with 99.5% mail-in turnout had 9,812 ballots counted. Another precinct with 100.6% turnout had 2,182 ballots returned, but only 2,170 mail-ins were ever sent.

    Turnout rates of 99% and 100% is what you get in a Third World Country, and that's what we're becoming (look at crime, the Border, Afghanistan, food prices, energy prices, and the empty store shelves, etc.), unless this is fixed immediately!


    The precincts above 92% mail-in return rate represented 264,000 votes. If just 2% are fraudulent, meaning Trump votes went to Biden, that would be enough to change the so-called margin in Arizona of 10,457 votes.

    The Department of Justice has had this information since the November 2020 Election, and has done nothing about it. The Pima County GOP should start a canvass of Republican voters in order to identify and remove the obvious fictitious voters from the system.

    In addition, the Arizona Audit found tens of thousands of illegal votes, including 6,545 mail-in ballots with no envelopes, 2,580 bad signatures on mail-in ballot envelopes, and 1,919 mail-in ballot envelopes with no signature, which is also determinative and more than the margin.

    Either a new Election should immediately take place or the past Election should be decertified and the Republican candidate declared winner.

    Liz Harrington shared the statement on Twitter.

    https://twitter.com/realLizUSA/statu...decertified%2F

    The vote was stolen from the American people and they were already busted in Arizona, but weak legislators across the nation and our cowardly federal government have done absolutely nothing about it.

    Contact your State Legislators and tell them to fight for your voting rights.

    Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers recently unveiled the New Declaration of Independence calling for nationwide audits, decertification where appropriate, and a U.S. House session to address the fraudulent election.


    Arizona State Rep. Mark Finchem is fighting to audit Pima County to make a record of the evidence. He has started a nationwide petition to forensically audit Pima County and further investigate these discrepancies.

    Sign the nationwide petition HERE!

    All of this evidence and more from the Maricopa County audit is in the hands of the Arizona Attorney General and he needs to take action to restore America.

    This election should be decertified immediately but until our elected officials gather the fortitude to fight for us, it all lies in the hands of Attorney General Mark Brnovich.

    Contact Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich now and demand a full criminal investigation.


    We need a reservation system for our people and our own ethnic-nationalist faith, where we'll have sermons about our people and nations, real history, science, philosophy, etc., in addition to our older religions. Throw in some open bar nights, comedy club hours, music and dance, etc., and it'll be a cracker barrel of good times lol.

    I've run into people who assume the audit fizzled and died a long time ago. This is not the case as shown above.

    Fox, OANN, and NewsMax are providing next to zero coverage of the audit (in addition to the rest of the main stream media):

    Fox News - Breaking News Updates | Latest News Headlines | Photos & News Videos
    One American News Network - Breaking News
    Newsmax – Breaking News | News Videos | Politics, Health, Finance

    They too have fallen?


    Operation Mockingbird – German Metapedia

    Operation Mockingbird was a secret, illegal and extensive intelligence operation by the CIA for infiltration and control of influential mass media in the United States and abroad. The operation was started by Frank Wisner in 1948 and taken over by Allen Dulles in 1953.

    A prominent victim was Joseph McCarthy, who of all people wanted to expose Cord Meyer, who was also involved in Operation Mockingbird, as a communist. Operation Mockingbird was then used against McCarthy. Influential journalists went on to attack McCarthy in the controlled media, dismissing him politically.

    As a result, the supposedly free press in western post-war Germany was an illusion, and in reality it was the military and secret services of the USA who controlled the media in Germany. This realization fits perfectly into the picture that the CIA under Allen Dulles carried out a gigantic covert media manipulation operation with Operation Mockingbird in the USA too. US secret services steered German politics almost at will via the control of the media. Where that was not enough to enforce the political ideas of the USA in Germany, the CIA also intervened massively in German politics and ensured, among other things, with bribes to the trade unions and political figures, that the US's strict anti-communist line for the division of Germany was enforced, and the integration of a capitalist West Germany into the western military and economic structures occurred. [1]

    Wolfgang Eggert, author of the book "First Manhattan, then Berlin", said:

    “To do this, you have to know the influence that the secret services exert on the so-called free press. At the end of the 1940s, the CIA started a real program for infiltration and control of the media landscape: 'Operation Mockingbird'. Since then, the agency's special budget for steering public opinion has totaled billions of dollars - annually." [2]

    Part of the money to finance the operation was diverted from the then Marshall Plan through money laundering . The existence of the operation was admitted in 1976 in the course of an investigation by the Church Committee. Alex Constantine wrote in 2000 that the CIA had deployed about 3,000 paid propaganda agents in the mass media as part of Operation Mockingbird in the 1950s. The chairman of the Church Committee, Frank Church, in 1976 estimated the cost of the Operation Mockingbird to be about 265 million US dollars annually.
    Operation Mockingbird - British Metapedia

    Operation Mockingbird was a stated large-scale program of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that began in the early 1950s and attempted to manipulate news media for propaganda purposes. It funded student and cultural organizations and magazines as front organizations. According to writer Deborah Davis, Operation Mockingbird recruited leading American journalists into a propaganda network and oversaw the operations of front groups.

    A method was to place reports, developed from CIA-provided intelligence, with cooperating or unwitting reporters. Those reports would be repeated or cited by the recipient reporters and would then, in turn, be cited throughout the media wire services.

    Wikipedia describes that program as "alleged", despite itself mentioning the 1976 Church Committee report, by U.S. Senate committee, which stated numerous covert CIA influences on mass media, both foreign and domestic.

    The CIA is stated to have restricted its use of (some forms) of this, although Wikipedia only mentions certain restrictions on certain domestic media, not foreign media.

    The CIA Used To Infiltrate The Media. Now The CIA Is The Media. – Caitlin Johnstone

    By Caitlin Johnston | April 16, 2021

    Back in the good old days, when things were more innocent and simple, the psychopathic Central Intelligence Agency had to covertly infiltrate the news media to manipulate the information Americans were consuming about their nation and the world. Nowadays, there is no meaningful separation between the news media and the CIA at all.

    As a former member of the major media prior to its concentration in few hands by the Clinton regime, I have reported on many occasions that the Western media is a Ministry of Propaganda for Washington. In the article below one of the propagandists confesses.

    We need a reservation system for our people and our own ethnic-nationalist faith, where we'll have sermons about our people and nations, real history, science, philosophy, etc., in addition to our older religions. Throw in some open bar nights, comedy club hours, music and dance, etc., and it'll be a cracker barrel of good times lol.

    There is nary a place where the CIA has not been stirring up mud since the beginning. It all makes me sick, but it is better than living in a bubble where I would prefer to know nothing. That is not how I was raised.
