The Parallel Election Left Me Gobsmacked

The Parallel Election Left Me Gobsmacked

By Bob Small

Mostly I read the Delco Times, Jewish Currents, and National Geographic and a smattering of articles, other magazines, the internet, and poems, but usually don’t invest my time in a book.

The Parallel Election by Leah Hoopes and Gregory Stenstrom is the only book I’ve read this year. 

However, after buying a copy from Leah at the 2023 Bill of Rights Banquet, ostensibly for a friend, I decided to at least start the book. Four hundred pages later, I realized how extensive the level of fraud was in 2020.  I was truly gobsmacked.

Now in one of my  my previous lifetimes, volunteering for the Greens, Independent, and Libertarian candidates, we knew the Democrats and Republicans would fight every signature to keep us off the ballot.  They would use every means, financial and legal and— If we finally made it on the ballot, we had exhausted all our financial and volunteer resources and could not win, except for occasional Judge of Election races, but nothing that could change the dynamics of uniparty rule. Period, end of sentence, as they used to say in South Philly.

But this book reveals a whole new level of cheating, shall we say the “Super Bowl of Cheating”. Much better than either Northeast or South Philly, where the dead continued to vote, but only for “the right Party.”  This was the attack of the “Uniparty”, both Democrat and Republican.

The evidence here was shocking.  Yet the evidence couldn’t be presented nor the results definitively challenged.

How is our system different from a totalitarian regime?

Consider an example of cheating in a non political world. 

That happens, too.

 The Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2017 World Series through a unique sign-stealing plan.  Major League Baseball finally (January 2020) confirmed this even though the record books still list the Houston Astros as the winners in the 2017 World Series.  Steps were taken to prevent this happening again and, presumably, are effective.

Let me end this, not with an answer, but with a question.

Having said all that, how do we approach changing the rules of the 2024 Primaries as opposed to changing the results of the 2020 Election?

Chesco Courts Inspire Dirty Secrets Of Divorce

Chesco Courts Inspire Dirty Secrets Of Divorce — We met attorney Renee Mazer at Wednesday’s hearing concerning election transparency in Delaware County and learned she is an author, a bit of a comedienne, and a crusader for reform in Pennsylvania’s family courts.

Her book The Dirty Secrets of Divorce or What Your Lawyer Won’t Tell You is a warning about the dangers and costs of divorce along with the apparent corruption that makes divorce far more painful and expensive than it has to be.

This apparent corruption includes the alleged theft of property and untenable and unconcionable loss of access to children.

It’s based on what she experienced in Chester County family courts during her divorce, and what she saw in countless other cases from around country.

What she describes meshes with Montco resident Elaine Mickman’s experiences mentioned several times here.

The Dirty Secrets though is anything but angry. It’s short, whimsical and upbeat. It features poetry — which is rather funny — and cartoons.

The warnings and explanations of the problems with the process are pointed, though.

Practical, much cheaper, options for couples wanting to split up are presented and they might be the most significant part of the book.

These include marriage restructuring with informal arrangements, legal separation, and collaborative divorce, all clearly described.

Places where the book can be bought include Amazon.

Besides the book, Renee has created a whole new method for divorce called The Mazer Method, which is almost court free.

“We act as coaches,” she said. “We don’t act as lawyers.”

Basically, the parties file their own papers and little or no time is before a judge.

It is much more affordable and healthier, she says. She says her clients are quite pleased with the service, and their kids are doing great.

And she’s also considering going into comedy.

And she says that her experiences with Pennsylvania’s family court system have left her with strong opinions regarding divorce.

“Hypothetically, I can unequivocally say . . . I would choose a psychopathic, child torturing spouse I haven’t had sex with in years over child torturing psychopathic lawyers and judges who screw me on a daily basis,” she said.

Thousand Drops Of Rain Makes Great Christmas Present

Thousand Drops Of Rain Makes Great Christmas Present — We last discussed Pete Crittenden back in September and now we can review his other book, A Thousand Drops of Rain.

One of the reasons it took so long to finish is because we didn’t want it to end.

It was that good.

It’s an old school compilation of short stories about adventure, mysticism and science fiction with Mike, a proprietor of a hotel and bar in Thailand on the shores of the Andaman Sea, being the glue that holds it together.

Thousand Drops Of Rain Makes Great Christmas Present

Pete is a retired Green Beret who grew up in Thailand and now lives in Chester County, Pa.

Some of the stories are inspired by things he actually experienced like a python sliding down a banyan tree to the terror of a dachshund, or a soldier participating in a voodoo ceremony to resolve a political issue.

For those concerned about the dog, he ends up fine.

And for a retired Green Beret, there is little shooting or blood and guts. The book is the perfect Christmas gift for a boy entering adolescence.

Or his dad.

The book comes from The link on the book’s image takes you to Barnes & Noble. You can also get it on Amazon.

Survival Mindset Should Be In Every Home

Survival Mindset Should Be In Every Home — A retired Green Beret living in Chester County, Pa. has written a must-read book for all who are used to a corner Wawa open 24/7.

Peter Crittenden’s Survival Mindset, A guide on What to do When Things Go Wrong, Bushcraft/Survival, Emergency Planning and Situational Awareness focuses on the mindset.

Yes, it includes very good how-tos. It describes what plants can be eaten (dandelions, yum); and animals, yes the flesh of all frogs is tasty and wholesome. It tells how water can be purified in a clear plastic bottle left in direct sun for six-hours. There are directions on building fires, tying necessary knots, and other things.

Crittenden’s main point, though, is the mental aspects summed up by the acronym S.U.R.V.I.V.A.L: Size up the situation; Use all senses; Remember where you are; Vanquish fear and panic; Improvise; Value living; Act like the natives; Live by you wits/Learn basic skills.

Survival Mindset Should Be In Every Home
Peter Crittenden as a security consultant in the Congo

He gives three real life examples of average people surviving likely fatal events by using parts of S.U.R.V.I.V.A.L.

Survival Mindset is unique among fieldcraft or survival guides in that the principles of emergency planning and priorities for survival tasks and preparation are identified and clearly presented

Crittenden retired as a sergeant first class after 25 years in the U.S. Army. He was a SERE school instructor; tracked war criminals in Bosnia and evacuated missionaries from Côte d’Ivoire during its first civil war.

Crittenden was born in Australia and grew up in ex-pat communities in Thailand, Indonesia and Bangladesh due to his father’s engineering jobs.

He described killing cobras — the little ones — in his backyard in Bangladesh, and experienced coups-d’etat and civil wars in Indonesia, Bangladesh and Thailand.

He emigrated to the United States and became a draftsman but didn’t see a future in it so he joined the Army in 1983.

“I found a home,” he said.

He started off in infantry in the 82nd Airborne Division, then Special Forces where he served as an engineering sergeant and then an intelligence sergeant.

After retirement, he worked as a security consultant. This is what inspired the book, which is based on military manuals and his experiences.

He says his clients often enthused about training sessions.

Survival Mindset is published by Blacksmith Publishing and can be found on Amazon. The Kindle edition is less than half the price of the traditional book but this might be a case where you want to splurge.

One never knows when the power might go out.

Covid Sows Seeds For Totalitarian Harvest

Covid Sows Seeds For Totalitarian Harvest — Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of the mRNA vaccine, has published on his Substack an article by Dr. Mattias Desmet, who coined the term mass formation psychosis, which is a “specific kind of group formation that makes people radically blind to everything that goes against what the group believes in. In this way, they take the most absurd beliefs for granted.”

He cites an incident in the 1979 Iranian Revolution when people started to believe that the portrait of Ayatollah Khomeini could be seen on the surface of the moon. Crowds would fill the streets during full moons to look for it — and claim to be able to see it.

More significantly, those griped by this psychosis become radically intolerant of dissent, and radically willing to sacrifice for the collective. He cites an Iranian mother who turned her son over to the authorities to be hanged. She then actually put the rope around his neck.

Mattias Desmet

Desmet is a well-published Belgian psychiatrist and statistician who is a professor at Ghent University.

Desmet is also the author of the recently published The Psychology of Totalitarianism, which is also the title of the Substack article.

Obviously, mass formation psychosis is a stepping stone to totalitarianism.

“Totalitarianism is not a historical coincidence,” Desmet said. “It is the logical consequence of mechanistic thinking and the delusional belief in the omnipotence of human rationality. As such, totalitarianism is a defining feature of the Enlightenment tradition.”

He says his book focuses on the broader cultural–historical processes from which totalitarianism emerges.

He said the Covid response matches the process. Expert virologists were called upon to save us. They replaced unreliable politicians who had been answerable to the people. When the mechanistic experts failed, they changed definitions like Orwell’s pigs and consolidated power.

Desmet also said that the “explosive proliferation of mass surveillance technology led to new and previously unimaginable means for the manipulation of the masses.”

He said his book ultimately is about finding a way out of the current cultural impasse. 

“The real task facing us as individuals and as a society is to envision a new view of humankind and the world, to find a new foundation for our identity, to formulate new principles for living together with others, and to reclaim a timely human capacity—Truth Speech,” he says.

Parallel Election Podcast Topic

Parallel Election Podcast Topic — Face The Culture’s podcast, A Tale of Two Elections, featuring whistleblowing authors Gregory Stenstrom and Leah Hoopes is available to the world.

Their The Parallel Election makes the slam-dunk case that vote fraud was real and massive in Delaware County, Pa. and gave the 2020 Presidential Election of Joe Biden.

The panel also featured moderators Stephen Gruen and Kim Kennedy, and myself.

It was revealed that Ingram Content Group reversed its gutless decision to stop the book’s distribution.

Gregory says poll watchers have defined legally enforceable duties and are different than observers.

“What they did in 2020 . . . was they created a class of people called observers,” he said.

Did these observers have any real power?


“You have to stay in a pen, you can’t look at ballots, and just sit there and shut up like a turnip,” Greg said.

The poll watcher, however, has real power.

They have by-right access to the ballots. This right, however, was ignored at the Delaware County counting warehouse in Chester. He said those in charge there made up the rules as they went along, and it took them five hours to fight their way in.

He said Pennsylvania Supreme Court upheld the powers of poll watchers but this was misquoted by the enforcers in large Democrat-controlled counties.

He said the court ruled that poll watchers as interveners for the citizenry are allowed to challenge ballots and uploading of drives.

“We are allowed to challenge anything that doesn’t have a chain of custody,” he said. “And they are forced to respond. We can even have somebody arrested.”

Again, however, Delaware County’s powers-that-be misconstrued the law.

“Some of the biggest liars and biggest participants in the fraud, were the attorneys,” Gregory said.

He said it must become common knowledge and something well understood by those running our elections what poll watchers and their powers are.

The book harshly criticizes GOP Republican candidate Sen. Doug Mastriano.

So who are they going to vote for?

“We are definitely not voting Shapiro,” Leah says.

A vote is not a love letter,” Greg said.

Leah says their goal is to get the truth to the voters and are staying away from endorsing or promoting any politician.

Gregory’s excellent social media site, Patriot.Online, was mentioned. It’s growing, easy to use and has a strong Southeastern Pa flavor.

Ingram Pulls Parallel Election; Call It Craven Cowardice

Ingram Pulls Parallel Election; Call It Craven Cowardice — Emerald Robinson reports that distributor Ingram Content Group has pulled The Parallel Election after a cease-and-desist letter. Really. A letter. Not not a court order, but a letter that any angry person can send.

The Parallel Election by Gregory Stenstrom and Leah Hoopes describes the massive vote fraud they saw happen in Delaware County, Pa during the 2020 Presidential Election.

Both were certified poll watchers and observers at the county’s counting center 

Oh, John Peter Zenger, wherefore art thou?

He would be sickened by Ingram’s craven gutlessness.

Hey, Ingram CEO. Next time you feel a raindrop just remember it’s John Peter Zenger up in Heaven pissing on your head.

Publisher Interrita says it is working to resolve the issue with Ingram.

Meanwhile, the book can still be purchased through third parties on Amazon or, best, at

It’s an important book that must be read.

Here is the statement from Interrita regarding the cancelled distribution.

The Parallel Election Exposes Delco Vote Fraud; Thousands Of Votes Manufactured For Biden, Stolen From Trump Says Book

The Parallel Election Exposes Delco Vote FraudThe Parallel Election by Gregory Stenstrom and Leah Hoopes should put paid to any doubts that tens of thousands of votes were manufactured for Joe Biden and tens of thousands stolen from Donald Trump in 2020, notably in Delaware County, Pa.

Stenstrom, of Glen Mills, and Mrs. Hoopes, of Bethel Township were certified poll watchers and observers at the counting center in 2020.

What they saw and what they suffered for revealing it would end indifference to what happened that year in all but the most stupid or hard-hearted.

The book tells of their suffering: financially and in their personal lives. It describes the threats from the powerful they received and the unremitting campaign of lawfare against them.

The authors say, specifically, their goal is not to overturn the election but to tell the truth.

And warn of the danger our republic faces.

The book’s villains are from both parties. Delaware County Republican Party officials stood down when faced with the mildest pressure and many went on to soft public jobs afterwards, they write.

The Parallel Election Exposes Delco Vote Fraud; Thousands Of Votes Manufactured For Biden, Stolen From Trump Says Book

They note how Act 77 — the main tool in the fraud — was not something hijacked by the Democrats, who are the minority party in the state legislature, but purposely passed by establishment Republicans who are enjoying easy living in government.

Act 77 allowed for the implementation of “no-excuse” mail-in ballots, despite a specific prohibition in the Pennsylvania Constitution.

They call out several by name including former Sen. Mike Folmer who represented the 48th District and just finished serving a sentence for having child porn; and former Sen. Tom Killion for whom Stenstrom was a poll watcher and who strangely dropped his challenge to the 9th Senatorial District results.

Killion now serves as State Director for the Mehmet Oz Senate campaign.

They were especially tough on this year’s GOP gubernatorial nominee Doug Mastriano. They say Mastriano abandoned them after the November 2020 Gettysburg Hearings in which they both testified.

The authors say they had been led by Mastriano to believe they would be under oath but were never sworn in. Stenstrom says he nearly backed out when he realized he would not be protected by having it be an official hearing and became suspicious that those who called it were just trying to cover themselves.

He testified, however, revealing that the chain of custody was shattered for more than 100,000 ballots; all the legally established procedures were ignored; and 47 USB cards containing vital data have disappeared.

The book is fairly easy to read with necessary but dense details placed at the end and in appendixs.

We urge that this book be read and copies bought for friends and relatives. It goes on sale tomorrow, Aug. 9 and can be purchased on Amazon or, best, at

Arkhaven Comics Winning The Cultural War

Arkhaven Comics Winning The Cultural War — Comics stopped being our thing when we turned thirteen but we can’t deny their social influence especially as most of the world-wide blockbuster movies are based on them.

As noted their social influence can’t be denied.

But there is hope. Vox Day is publishing new titles with heroic, uplifting and entertaining storylines at

The stable of artists include Chuck Dixon and Ben Garrison.

Sliced Americana Jim Watkins

Sliced Americana Jim Watkins — Just finished Sliced Americana by Jim Watkins and Sharon Green. It’s a great book. It’s a discordiate beatnik novel for the 21st century.

It’s Chandler Brossard with a heavy salting of Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and a dollop of Thomas Jefferson.

What’s it about? Well, the plot elements include string theory, extra-dimensions, metaphysics, an exotic dancer, her twin children, extraterrestrial abductions, politics, and the adventures of the narrator and Chuck, his drag queen buddy.

Sliced Americana Jim Watkins

There were honest belly laughs and historical tidbits. We never knew Spain invaded Cambodia. They did.

There are some rather graphic parts but it is not gratuitous and makes sense in context.

If you do decided to read and want to skip Chapter 2 which is a bit heavy on the string theory stuff, it still comes together in the end.

Watkins, besides being a writer, is the founder and owner of the legendary 8kun message board where the mysterious Q posted.

You can get Sliced Americana here; on Amazon and probably other palces.
