So, how exactly did President Trump lose 138,339 Michigan votes in the matter of a screen refresh? At this time, I can’t say for sure, but I have my suspicions after serving as a Poll Challenger for the Election Integrity Fund from 5pm, Tuesday November 3rd to 5:30pm, Wednesday November 4th.

COVID policy played a significant role. Governor Whitmer and Secretary of State Benson leveraged the crisis to fan the flames of fear and introduce policies that obfuscated election oversight. Detroit Election officials embraced these policies in a concerted effort to interfere in the effective oversight of the election.

Lead Detroit Election officials:

  • Daniel Baxter, Detroit Director of Elections
  • Chris Thomas, Senior Advisor to Detroit City Clerk, Janice Winfrey
  • David Nathan, Assistant Director of Elections

NOTE: Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey made a brief appearance, but was otherwise non-existent.

Detroit Central Counting Board “Boarded” Up to Prevent Observation of Counting Boards

What are some examples of election integrity subversion?

  • Pre-Election stonewalling by Detroit election officials as to what election procedures would be followed during the 2020 election as well as unfettered access to witness the following activities:
    • The arrival at DDE of ballots from the USPS and satellite locations throughout Detroit 
    • Ballot storage procedure in the satellites and Detroit Department of Elections
    • Observance of the Relia-vote system (if it were to be used in the November 3rd election)
    • Sorting of ballots by precinct 
    • Transferral of ballots to the TCF AV Counting Boards
  • Pre-Election drop boxes distributed throughout Democrat communities with little or no oversight leveraging grants from $250 Million donation to the Center for Tech and Civic Life organization by Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg.
  • Suspicious Pre-Election ballot-size box drop offs at side door of Detroit Election Bureau. When confronted with camera rolling, suspect put boxes briskly in car and sped off without answering questions directed at them.
  • Suspicious ballot drop offs and pick ups at senior centers.
  • Election day stonewalling. When Chris Thomas, Senior Advisor to Detroit City Clerk, was asked the fundamental question about how vote tallies were to be transferred to the County, he refused to provide that information until after election day.
  • Repeated examples of poll challengers being denied the ability to execute their duties in violation of MCL 168.733. One systemic example includes the rollout and subsequent post-lawsuit retraction of six foot distancing rule that would have impaired ability of poll challengers to effectively monitoring election processes.
  • Multiple poll book instances tracked in separate physical locations enables a single voter to vote twice. Absentee Ballots were tracked at TCF Facility while Poll Ballots were tracked at Ford Field. Poll books at both facilities were not synchronized. Therefore, a voter could vote absentee within a specific timeframe and their voting status would not be updated in the in person poll book to prevent voting again. Multiple observers reported people actively exploiting this loophole.
  • Roughly half of Election Poll workers left before 8pm on Tuesday, November 3rd in violation of Detroit Elections Bureau rules.
  • Duplicate ballots being completed while Republican poll worker not present. Violation of MCL 168.765a(10)
  • Ballots whose ballot numbers do not appear in e-Poll book or paper supplemental poll book were treated as potential ballots for tabulation. Indications were that senior Detroit election officials intended to find justification to have these ineligible votes counted.
  • Only a handful of Republican poll workers hired despite the Detroit City Clerk being provided with an extensive list of candidates. Per MCL 168.765a(10), “At all times, at least 1 election inspector from each major political party must be present at the absent voter counting place and the policies and procedures adopted by the secretary of state regarding the counting of absent voter ballots must be followed.” This statute was violated throughout the activation of the Detroit AV Counting Board for all but a handful of the 136 AV Counting Boards.
  • Roughly 38,000* ballots arrive via a Detroit Elections Bureau van with MI license plate 090×063 at around 3:45am after more than three hours of little to no precinct activity. Origin of ballots unknown but primary candidate is drop box collections AFTER 8pm poll closure. Likely would have been known if it weren’t for previously mentioned stonewalling.
  • Roughly 10 boxes of military ballots not counted until poll challengers were prevented from entering AVCB. Ballots were available to count during period of little to no precinct activity between midnight and arrival of 38,000* ballots yet no action was taken. Why? Poll workers were idle.
  • Tabulation, adjudication, and election official computers all connected to routers which were connected to the internet. When I asked Daniel Baxter if computers were connected to the internet, he replied “No”. When I requested verification that the computers were not connected to internet, David Nathan said “Trust me” and refused my request to verify no connectivity to the internet. For the record, every tabulation and every adjudication computer screen observed showed the Windows icon that represents an ACTIVE internet connection. In addition, ethernet cable connections were traced to confirm physical connectivity of tabulation, adjudication, and election official devices. Internet connectivity equals significant exposure to vote manipulation fraud.
Active Internet Connection

Key questions:

  • Why would Election Official computers need to be connected to adjudicator and tabulation computers?
  • How would election vote counts transferred to media prior to balancing and closing any Counting Boards (i.e. Precincts)?
  • How did a 300,000 vote lead disappear in the flash of a computer screen?

Is it possiblle the Michigan legislators are not stepping up because they are complicit in the steal and don’t want to be ousted and criminally charged? They better step up or 73 million plus of us are going to believe they are also corrupt.

Also, in regards to the dem legislators that brought up problems with the Dominion machines… The question. Is didn’t they already know Hilary stole the primary election (and planned to steal the prresidency from Trump) right from Bernie, ergo which means they were asking to have the machines not used bc of that? That would explain their silence now.

The apples are falling… Any push back from any one in government (Romney,we know who you are now) against transparency should tell us they are also dirty, Republicans and Democrats alike!

These so-called “Republicans” are plants, if there is no pushback. The only way to recuse yourself as a legislator is to step up and speak out forcefully against voter fraud!

Sidney Powell, each legislator who doesn’t cooperate fully, criminally, go after them first please!! They are actually showing their hand of who they are by not doing so

Two and a half minute segment of Senator Colbeck’s ‘Precinct 13’ interview, where he explains why it is very concerning that the military ballots were not processed until the morning of 4th November, at a time when there were few if any Republican poll challengers to observe the process, despite poll workers being available to do the job at the earlier time when observers were also available:

They knew damn well few people in the military would vote for Biden. They were running some ballot switch software that only affects the president candidate box. Would be the only logical explanation.

What amazes me most is that I only know 2 people that brag about voting for Biden out of the thousand plus people I know. Yet Biden had more than 50% no way.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
