Delco Voter Books Missing; Does Dem Vote Fraud Loom?

We have received this press release from the Delaware County (Pa.) Republican Party and feel it is important to share.

Alarmed that a number of measures have not already been put in place, Tom McGarrigle, Chairman of the Delaware County Republican Party, called on the County’s Election Board to take immediate action to protect the integrity of the upcoming election and prevent the disenfranchisement of voters at the polls on Election Day.

Delco First Assistant District Attorney Tanner Rouse is tasked to be the point man on election problems. Here he is bragging on social media about campaigning for Democrats. Yes, it’s concerning.

McGarrigle also expressed alarm that when at least two duly elected Judges of Election went to pick up their voter books from the Election Board today (Oct. 30), they had already been picked up by other individuals.  The Election Board was unable to determine who picked up the books, demonstrating a complete lack of basic safeguards and protections.  The location of the books, which are used to verify a person’s eligibility to vote at a polling place – and confirm they had not already voted by mail-in ballot — remains unknown at this time.  

McGarrigle called on the Election Board to establish clear procedures and safeguards in three key areas:

1.  Ensuring the county’s 44 mail-in ballot drop boxes are closed and secured at 8 pm on Election Day, as well as providing for bipartisan oversight of the collection and delivery of those ballots;

2.   Preventing the disenfranchisement of voters by ensuring each polling location has ample provisional ballots to address the problem of many individuals never receiving their requested mail-in ballots (Note there was a problem in the primary election where many polling locations ran out of provisional ballots); and

3.  Establishing clear procedures with bipartisan oversight for segregating mail in ballots received after Election Day to ensure compliance with the recent opinion issued by the US Supreme Court.

“It is alarming that we are just days away from the election and the Election Board has failed to address many important issues related to ensuring a fair and secure election,” said McGarrigle.  “The county Republican Party has attempted to work in good faith with the Democratic run county government, but many of our concerns about the lack of transparency and details on steps being taken to ensure the integrity of the election have gone unanswered.”

McGarrigle said he was driven to take his concerns public because those concerns have gone unanswered and unaddressed.  He said the Delaware County Republican Party was informed that Tanner Rouse, the First Assistant District Attorney under Democratic DA Jack Stollsteimer was the county’s “point person” on addressing election concerns. He said that a number of questions and concerns have gone unanswered by Rouse and was bewildered when Rouse posted today on social media that he was out campaigning on behalf of Democrats Deb Ciamacca and Mary Gay Scanlon (see attached). McGarrigle noted the irony, particularly since the Chester Spirit reported shortly after Stollsteimer took office earlier this year that as a result of a new ethics policy he instated that “partisan activity was ceased” by employees of the DA’s office. 

“It is unbelievable that the county’s point person on ‘fair elections’ who is responsible for reviewing and investigating any complaints from the Republican Party is engaging in campaign activities for one party while ignoring our requests to ensure the integrity of the elections,” said McGarrigle. “It’s a blatant conflict of interests and raises serious questions about whether our our concerns will receive an unbiased, fair review.”  

“When voters approved Delaware County’s Home Rule Charter, they specifically established the Election Bureau as an independent entity free of the control of Delaware County Council to provide for fair elections and safeguard against improper influence by any one political party.  In the months leading up to the election, we have seen the complete politicization of the Election Bureau and Election Board by Delaware County Council.  County Council’s violation of the independence of the Election Board, the repeated violations of the Sunshine Act, lack of transparency, and the failures to safeguard the security of the election process need to be addressed.”

McGarrigle stated that to date the Election Bureau has failed to ensure compliance with state law that requires all ballots must be submitted by 8 pm on Election Day by establishing procedures to close and secure each of the county’s 44 drop box locations at that time. Currently, the county plans to have 4 vans drive to each drop box location and collect those ballots without any bipartisan oversight. That would also mean ballots could continue to be deposited in drop box locations well after 8 pm. McGarrigle called on the Election Board to immediately establish a process by which each drop box has a tamper-proof seal with a serial number placed upon it by the Judge of Elections for that precinct under the oversight of a watcher to remove any concerns that any ballot could be discarded or tampered with. He also called for a process by which watchers could monitor the travel of those vans until those drop boxes were delivered and properly secured.

McGarrigle said that there were rampant issues during the primary election of polling locations having insufficient provisional ballots on hand. McGarrigle predicted demand for provisional ballots would be even higher during the upcoming general election because many voters have not yet received their mail-in ballots from Delaware County, despite making their requests weeks ago.  During the primary election, the scarcity of provisional ballots at polling locations forced many Judge of Elections to require voters to wait for more to be delivered in order to vote provisionally. In some cases, voters left and did not return due to transportation issues or time constraints, resulting in the disenfranchisement of those voters.  He said the Delaware County Republican Party has repeatedly raised concerns about ensuring ample provisional ballots that have gone unanswered by the Election Board or the District Attorney’s Office. 

McGarrigle also noted that the recent opinion issued last week by the US Supreme Court requires that all mail-in-ballots received after Election Day be segregated from the other mail-in ballots until the court can hear arguments and issue a decision on the case.  He said that the Election Board needs to establish a clear and secure process – with bipartisan oversight – for ensuring that mail-in ballots received after the Election Day are not co-mingled with other ballots.  

“Given the politicization of the Election Board that has already occurred, these are fair but much-needed steps that need to be taken to provide reassurances and ensure the integrity of the process and provide for a fair, untainted election,” said McGarrigle.  

McGarrigle explained that over the course of the past few months, there have been many irregularities related to the actions by Delaware County Council and the Election Bboard.  He said that going forward, there needs to be clear dividing between County Council and the Election Board to restore its independence. McGarrigle pointed to violations of the Sunshine Act, such as failing to provide public notice regarding agenda items before the Election Board.

He also expressed concern that County Council, on Oct. 7, approved $80,000 in no bid contracts, including a $53,000 contract to Today Media, the parent company of Main Line Today magazine, for “voter outreach.”  At the October 6th County Council agenda meeting, Councilwoman Christine Reuther stated that the contracts needed to be approved because the two companies were already doing the work and needed to get paid. Earlier this week, the contractors issued a communication under the name of the Delaware County Election Board that was never reviewed or approved by the members of the board or their solicitor.

“It is extremely concerning that there had been no explanation of why this work was not competitively bid , how the firms were selected, who selected them, and how they could enter into contracts with them before any approvals were given,” said McGarrigle.  “In addition, who is approving these communications from the Election Board without their knowledge or authorization?”

McGarrigle raised a number of other concerns as well, including failures to address problems of ballot harvesting and repeated failures by the majority of the Election Board to provide proper notification to the Republican representative on the board on a range of issues. McGarrigle also noted that the county’s establishment of an Election Working Group, which met regularly and included a quorum of both County Council and the Election Board, as well as other select, hand-picked organizations violated the Sunshine Act.  He said those meetings should have been open to the public.

Media Falsehoods Defend Biden, Glenn Greenwald Censored

Media Falsehoods Defend Biden, Glenn Greenwald Censored — Glenn Greenwald, who is/was/whatever a man of the left, is one of this generation’s great journalists. He co-founded the web-based The Intercept in 2013 to give him the freedom to report about the things the establishment fought to censor.

Last week, he was censored by The Intercept. He had written an article describing how the established media was not merely ignoring the scandal concerning Hunter Biden’s laptop but actually lying to defend his father, their preferred candidate.

To recap, Hunter left his laptop at The Mac Shop in Wilmington, Del. for repairs. He never picked it up. The store owner checked its contents and found troubling material, some of which indicated that Hunter and Joe were selling influence to foreign nations including China.

The established media said, falsely, that the information could not be verified. The established media said, based on unsubstantiated claims by people affiliated with the CIA, that it was Russian disinformation.

Greenwald wrote an expose for The Intercept in which he revealed the inexcusable failings of our media while explaining how the laptop was most certainly Hunters and the troubling things on it were legitimate.

The Intercept would not run his story unless the Biden references were removed. Greenwald resigned. He explains in detail here.

The story The Intercept refused to run can be found here. It’s worth reading — especially for those whose Trump derangement syndrome might be curable.

Identity Theft Occurs Every 2 Seconds

Identity Theft Occurs Every 2 Seconds

By Joe Guzzardi

In its 2018 analysis, the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) uncovered potentially 39 million identity theft cases between 2012 to 2016 that involved unlawfully present foreign nationals who stole the identities of American citizens. Illegal aliens frequently use stolen or falsified Social Security numbers to apply for, and often get, U.S. jobs. An estimated 8 million unlawfully present aliens work in the U.S. economy. Some among them vote illegally in state and federal elections.

Identity Theft Occurs Every 2 Seconds

After culling through more than 1 million tax returns from last year, auditors uncovered roughly 883,000 cases of employment identity theft. According to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) the Internal Revenue Service failed to notify 393,000 victims that included more than 133,000 minors whose parents are therefore then unable to protect against the continued use of their children’s Social Security numbers.

The Washington Times wrote that the IRS, citing privacy issues, steadfastly refuses to advise parents about their children’s data theft, a misguided policy that can lead to ruining, in the future, the children’s credit rating and their employment prospects. The IRS has another questionable practice: the agency only advises of repeat employment identity theft every three years, giving fraudsters carte blanche to continue to use their criminally obtained data.

After their identities have been stolen, victims often spend years and considerable sums trying to restore their good credit ratings. In one egregious case, for 20 years an illegal immigrant drug trafficker and sex offender used a Texas man’s identitywhich made it impossible for the victim to find employment.

Stealing Social Security numbers is a felony crime, and knowingly submitting a falsified I-9 form is also a felony. On every I-9 form that applicants fill out, the following grave warning appears: “I am aware that federal law provides for imprisonment and/or fines for false statements or use of false documents in connection with the completion of this form.”

Given the alarming identity theft statistics, a crime which occurs every two seconds and that TIGTA once labeled an “epidemic,” the federal government should be in hot pursuit of the perpetrators. Instead, the feds have shown little interest in prosecuting offenders.

Illegal immigration is often referred to as a victimless crime. But U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst took exception to the old canard. After an August 2019 Immigration and Customs Enforcement action at a Mississippi workplace that resulted in the detention of 680 unlawfully present aliens, and the prosecution of 119 for using false documents to gain their employment, Hurst issued a statement that defended ICE.

Said Hurst: Americans have been “directly harmed by the theft of their identities, resulting in citizens not being able to get loans or credit cards, obtain health insurance, and perform other basic activities.”

Identity theft could be stopped in its tracks if Congress could muster up its long-absent political will to take three steps:

a)      Mandate E-Verify, the free, online program that would immediately confirm whether a new hire is legally authorized to work in the U.S. E-Verify is available to employers nationwide, but since it’s voluntary, employers who prefer to hire cheap labor can hire illegal immigrants with impunity.

b)      Resume no-match letters, the practice that the Social Security Administration adopted in 2002 when it sent out nearly 1 million letters to employers that filed W-2s with information that was inconsistent with the agency’s records. SSA’s original intention was to correct clerical mistakes that had created large sums paid into the system going uncredited. Quickly, however, SSA discovered that the major problem was illegal immigrants who lied to their employers. Thousands of illegal aliens either left their jobs to avoid confrontation or were fired when they were found out. But the no-match letter campaign had various softened iterations before it ended entirely in 2012 when the Chamber of Commerce and immigration activist groups protested.

c)       Notify identity theft victims. SSA also should send letters to workers with more than one employer reporting wages to their SSNs. By sending letters to employees showing more than one employer, SSA would put the employees on notice that, unless they are actually working more than one job, they are identity theft victims, and should take immediate action to minimize the damage to their financial and work histories.

Congress’ unwillingness to intervene on behalf of U.S. citizens, and in the process protect illegal immigrant identity thieves, is consistent with its overall indifference to protecting Americans while incentivizing illegal immigration.

Biden Amnesty Gamble Risks America

Biden Amnesty Gamble Risks America

By Joe Guzzardi 

Immigration, the nation’s most contentious domestic issue, finally got airtime in the final debate between President Trump and challenger Joe Biden. The former Vice President went way out on a limb when he promised immediate amnesty to roughly 11 million unlawfully present foreign nationals.

Biden stuck his neck out further when he said that Americans “owe” citizenship to illegal immigrants: “We owe them, we owe them…” Biden’s verb choice will disappoint the moderate and undecided voters he needs in his White House quest who view amnesty as a reward for knowingly breaking U.S. laws.

Biden Amnesty Gamble Risks America

Amnesty is the federal government’s pardon for violating immigration policies – using false documentation or committing identity theft to secure Social Security numbers or other official identification cards, obtaining driver’s licenses to gain employment and to stay in the county. The greatest perk amnesty ultimately offers is a path to lawful permanent residency and U.S. citizenship.

Since the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act, there have been seven individual amnesties for Central AmericansHaitians, Cubans and Eastern Europeans. Additional amnesties are proposed in Congress every year – a far cry from what then-President Ronald Reagan promised would be a “one-time only” amnesty. Until the 1986 legislation which granted legal status to 2.8 million unlawfully present foreign nationals, amnesty had been provided exclusively on a case-by-case basis.

On its face alone, amnesty is immensely unpopular among mainstream Americans. Biden’s promise to send Congress amnesty legislation within the first 100 days of his administration would merely be the starting point for the inevitable labor market saturation and wage suppression that the presence of millions of newly work-authorized foreign nationals will represent. Remember – amnesty translates into work permission. Biden is promising U.S. workers, the unemployed, underemployed, jobless minorities and recent university graduates that he will advocate for more labor competition in an economy devastated by COVID-19.

A deeper dig into Biden’s amnesty proposal uncovers more troubling probabilities. Many more than 11 million illegal immigrants may be present. Eleven million has been the estimated illegal immigrant population for year; the likelihood is that the total is higher. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Yale University research projected an illegal immigrant presence that ranges from 16.5 million to 29.1 million illegal immigrants.

The scholars emphasized that their findings didn’t reflect rising illegal immigration, but rather years of undercounting the alien population. Analysts who study immigration consider the establishment media’s reporting that the illegal immigration count remains unchanged for decades at 11 million a near demographic impossibility given the many border surges, catch and release, and asylum entries. They expect many more to come forward to claim amnesty eligibility. And Biden, like his amnesty-advocating predecessors, never mentioned the long-term population consequences that the inevitable chain migration creates. Excluding the effect that Biden’s amnesty would have, the U.S.’s current legal immigration system that admits 1.5 million foreign nationals annually will create over the next two decades an inflow of between seven and eight million chain migrants.

During his first 100 days, the former vice president also promised to place a moratorium on removals, and to deport only aliens with felony convictions. But since Biden has pledged to restrict Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s interior actions, it is doubtful that the vague background checks that he’s proposed even if carried out would lead to aliens’ removals.

Biden offered Americans zero in exchange for his coveted amnesty. Had he proposed amnesty in exchange for implementing mandatory E-Verify, ending birthright citizenship or limiting chain migration to nuclear family members, Biden might have won over some undecided voters. But as Biden outlined his plan, he offered no benefit to the average voter, but gifted a huge bonanza to the Chamber of Commerce and craven, cheap labor-addicted employer profiteers who will benefit from endless employment-based visa issuance.

Voters should heed President Reagan’s Attorney General Ed Meese’s 1986 amnesty assessment. Meese said that IRCA didn’t solve the illegal immigration problem. The legislation was plagued by “extensive document fraud, and the number of people applying for amnesty far exceeded projections… and after a brief slowdown, illegal immigration returned to high levels and continued unabated, forming the nucleus of today’s large population of illegal aliens.”

Biden’s amnesty gamble in the midst of a tight employment pandemic that has put millions on the unemployment line may backfire. The all-in on immigration platform may cost Biden.
