Trump Ballots Discarded In Luzerne County — If you missed as is likely, the United States Attorney’s Office Middle District of Pennsylvania released this statement, today, Sept. 24.
On Monday, September 21, 2020, at the request of Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis, the Office of the United States Attorney along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Scranton Resident Office, began an inquiry into reports of potential issues with a small number of mail-in ballots at the Luzerne County Board of Elections.
Since Monday, FBI personnel working together with the Pennsylvania State Police have conducted numerous interviews and recovered and reviewed certain physical evidence. Election officials in Luzerne County have been cooperative. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded. Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time. Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot. Of the nine ballots that were discarded and then recovered, 7 were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump. Two of the discarded ballots had been resealed inside their appropriate envelopes by Luzerne elections staff prior to recovery by the FBI and the contents of those 2 ballots are unknown.
Our inquiry remains ongoing and we expect later today to share our up to date findings with officials in Luzerne County. It is the vital duty of government to ensure that every properly cast vote is counted.
My article from Sept. 10 left some confusion. My view that you should not trust the mail and vote in person hasn’t changed but let me clarify.
Here are the new rules concerning mail-in ballots:
If you apply for a mail-in ballot, your name gets put on a list when it is sent out to you. When you receive it, if you change your mind, DO NOT throw it out! You must bring the BLANK mail-in ballot and the ENVELOPE to your polling location and turn it in. Only then will you receive a regular ballot that will then be scanned.
If you marked the ballot, you can bring it in, but you will vote by provisional ballot that is not scanned.
If you applied for a ballot, but did not receive it, you can come to vote in person, but will receive a provisional ballot that is not scanned.
Oct. 27, is the deadline for applications to be received by Voter Services. Not post-marked by that date. It actually has to be at Voter Services by that date. Please, if you are sure you want a mail-in ballot do it well before the deadline. The ballots get mailed out after the end of September. So there is a very narrow window for filling it out and getting it back.
Bottom line: Don’t apply for a mail-in ballot. It is not efficient. We still don’t know that the Postal Service will be able to handle it. I paid for Priority Mail on Sept. 16, and it still has not been delivered. Another person told me she sent a birthday card to her nephew in New Jersey on Sept. 12, and here we are 9 days later, and her nephew has not received it still.
If you have questions about your ballot, i.e. you want to know the status of your application, call 610-278-3275, Voters Service. The recorded message will tell you how to find the answer to your question.

Pennsylvania Court Kicks Greens Off Ballot — The Democrat Party minions on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Sept. 16, kicked Green Party presidential candidate Howie Hawkins off the Nov. 3 ballot citing a paperwork error.
Repeat: The judges decided that a paperwork error was enough to throw a guy off the ballot; a guy whose supporters spent hours acquiring the appropriate amount of signatures.
The vote, which overturned a lower court ruling, was 5-2 with only the Republicans dissenting. Not saying the GOP motivations were noble but they were in the right if you believe in honest interpretation of the law, representative government and citizen leaders.
It is beyond apparent that our courts are entirely about politics and the judges don’t give a fig about justice or the rule of law.
Anyway, Bob Small, a Green Party activist from Swarthmore, wrote a poem about the matter which we are publishing.
It should strike a little fear into any Democrat with brains. You know, Donald Trump is probably more of a Green than Joe Biden, at least when it comes to military intervention and trade. Even foreign labor. The USMCA did give Mexican autoworkers a nice raise, you know.
Explain to me again why I should vote for the Party that knocked my Party off the Presidential Ballot
Explain to me why I should vote against 45 and for – even though I can only vote for HH by a write in
Explain to me how this election is any different is any different from any election since at least 1968 in terms of choice in terms of choice
Explain to me how I should hold my nose and vote for a guy named joe and maybe next election- I don’t believe there’s any explanation this time just like there wasn’t any last time any of the last times from casey to biden and before
Every other country even included one named Russia has alternative Parties on the ballot except- Explain that to me.
And here is the official Green Party press release:
HARRISBURG, PA – In the greatest act of voter suppression since Jim Crow legislation, the Democratic Party has disenfranchised 9 million voters in the Commonwealth by using an amendable paperwork error to remove Howie Hawkins from the Pennsylvania General Election ballot in November.
State election officials informed Green Party officers that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, submission of affidavits by fax copy to the Bureau of Elections, which offices were closed due to the pandemic, would be acceptable.
The Democrats failed at two other attempts to defeat democracy in the Keystone State, including a red herring challenge to the 8,500 signatures collected by the GPPA during the pandemic. The Democrats falsely claimed the signatures were illegible but dropped the challenge when a simple check of the registered voters’ database demonstrated their deceit.
Not satisfied, the Democrats doubled down their attack by appealing a lower court decision allowing the Green Party candidates to appear on the ballot, to the PA Supreme Court which as a 5 – 2 majority of Democratic Party Judges.
The Democrats claimed that the fax copy violated procedure and thereby made the Green Party candidate ineligible. In the dissenting opinion, it was made clear that this was an amendable situation and should not bar the Green Party from the November election. The five Democratic Party judges disagreed.
There are two ways to defeat democracy, one way is by preventing citizens from voting, and the other is by preventing worthy candidates from appearing on the ballot. When the law can be used as a subterranean tool in a process which can only be labeled “political profiling” the meaning and the intent of the law is subverted as is the democracy from which those laws were supposed to have sprung.
Rosenbaum Raped Five Boys; Good Shooting Kyle Rittenhouse — We’ve noted the injustice in the first degree murder charge levied against 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse for shooting three thugs in self defense on Aug. 25 during the sedition in Kenosha, Wis. While we reported the violent nature of deceased felons Joseph D Rosenbaum and Anthony M. Huber, we actually underplayed how bad Rosenbaum was.
The charges should not just be dropped against Kyle, the boy should be given a medal.
We also never reported that the gunman Kyle wounded, Gaige Grosskreutz, was also a felon with a burglary conviction.
It’s safe to say that when all shot turn out to be felons, the event is not a peaceful protest for racial justice.
And sorry for sounding paranoid but its looking more and more that the violence is organized — note that the link is from a year ago — and there is a serious attempt to undermine the vote. Why would the Democrat governors like Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer and Pennsylvania’s Tom Wolf push to ignore state law and let ballots be accepted after Election Day? Why would judges support them?
If people can’t figure out how to vote in the next 44 days, they don’t want to vote. The deadline should be held sacred by those who recognize the importance of social order and peaceful change of government.
It’s obviously not.
This is not a partisan thing. There are Democrats who love the Constitution and are fighting to avoid the upcoming turmoil. There are Republicans who want your money to keep flowing to D.C. and Silicon Valley and Wall Street and their pockets.
Yes, we dare call it sedition and say the names of Norm Eisen and George Soros.

Republican Workers Shot In Minneapolis Drive-by –Diontae Rayquan Wallace and Andre Conley, campaign workers for Republican congressional candidate Lacy Johnson, were shot in a drive-by shooting, Sept. 14, in Minneapolis.
Conley died in the hospital.
Johnson is seeking to unseat radical Jew-hating Muslim Democrat Ilhan Omar in Minnesota’s 5th District.
The Johnson campaign does not think the shootings were politically motivated. Nine people under the age of 18 have been shot in the city this year.
Just the same, we’ll reserve judgement until an arrest.
Bernell Trammell, 60, a Black supporter of Donald Trump, was shot in the street in Milwaukee on July 23.
Aqua Backing Carolyn Comitta — Carolyn Comitta, who is seeking to replace fellow Democrat Andy Dinniman to represent the 19th District in the Pennsylvania Senate, is backed by Aqua America.
The Bryn Mawr-based, now-national water company that once called itself Springfield Water Co. and the Philadelphia Suburban Water Co. but now calls itself Essential Utilities gave a grand to Carolyn in April. Wonder why they want her to win.
Could it have anything to do with their lust for the locally owned Chester Water Authority?
Guess we know where Carolyn, who now represents the 156th District in the State House, comes down on the matter.
Hey did you see where Aqua — excuse us Essential Utilities — is making beaucoup bucks supplying water to frackers in the Marcellus Shale? Not that we have any problem with it but we kind of wonder how much that warms the hearts of Dinniman’s voters.
If Democrats Believed In Democracy Why Do They Fear The Greens?
By Bob Small
Do Democrats believe in Democracy?
As Ronald Reagan famously said in 1980, There you go again. This time the Pennsylvania Democratic Party reacts in fear and trembling to the big bad Pennsylvania Green Party by once again taking them to court to keep them off the Novemember Ballot. As though Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden is afraid of Green Party Presidential Candidate Howie Hawkins. I doubt that, and I doubt he even knows about the Pennsylvania Ballot Access situation. It would be interesting to get his reaction to this, but I’d be willing to bet we’ll never get that.
Probably if you asked him, Joe Biden might think Howie Hawkins was a Pitcher for the Wilmington Blue Rocks minor League baseball Team whom he grooved a pitch to on one opening day.
The Pennsylvania Greens were forced, by a previous court decision, to go out and secure enough Petition Signatures, in this time of Covid, to be on the Ballot. Amazingly, they got three times the amount of required signatures. Amazingly, they still are being challenged. Shouldn’t the Democrats be focused on electing their Candidates rather than- To some of us, it feels like Goliath demanding the Referee measure David’s slingshot for the proper size requirements.
By the way, before anyone talks about the Greens “stealing” the Democratic Vote, I looked at my personal vote and it said to me that it did not belong to any one political party, it only belongs to me. It does not belong to the Constution Party, Democratic Party, the Green Party, the Libertarian Party, or The Republican Party, If anyone has evidence to the otherwise, duly notarized, please forward it to me.
At a certain age, which I’m not revealing even under executive court order, you start to wonder how many more elections you might have in which to vote. If I can’t choose who to vote for, I can’t help feeling my vote, and my voice, is being “stolen”. Perhaps, if I can’t vote for the Candidate of my choice, maybe I will decline to vote. Some, perhaps, may decide to vote for the other Party Candidate, just out of pure anger.
Some progressives, not only Greens, may see this as Big Party Brutality and may consider this when they come to the polling place and/or mail in their votes.
Some of us need someone to vote for, not someone to vote against. Failing that, you obtain some of the results of previous elections.
So we end up with the question, do Democrats really believe in Democracy or is this another case of false advertising. Further, do we really live in a Democracy?
Kim Klacik Ad –This may be the best advertisement in the history of politics. It’s from Kimberly Klacik who is the Republican running for Congress in Maryland’s staunchly Democrat District 7 , which consists of a about half of Baltimore and most of Howard County .
It’s about time Republican started telling the truth to win.

Kim Klacik Ad — Democrats Don’t Want You To See This
AFFH would have required the municipalities of places like Delaware County to scrap zoning, build bigger water and sewer lines to support high-density living, expand schools and social services and add mass transit. It would have been a federal takeover of local government.
The Trump administration killed it.
If Biden wins, he — or his handlers — will bring it back on steroids.
Biden backs a proposal by Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., that would withhold federal transportation grants unless communities sign on to AFFH. It would be almost impossible for many communities to decline this funding, and the feds would effectively usurp local government.
Life in Delco, Montco, Chesco and Bucks would change for the worse. Open space will disappear, taxes will rise and those the minorities who move to the burbs seek to escape, will be empowered to follow along.
Yes, crime will rise. No, it is not about skin color but character.
A far better solution would be to suburbanized the cities. Give the Philadelphia neighborhoods the power to set their own zoning and hire their own police and start volunteer fire departments. It sure would complicate life for the party bosses and their flunkies who get rich off centralized power.
Samizdat Cure For Google Censorship — Breitbart.com is a news website that reports unflattering things about Democrats and nice things about Donald Trump and his supporters.
Because of this it is disparaged as “right wing” and “conservative” but, unlike the Washington Post and NBC, it doesn’t make things up, and it corrects its mistakes.
It has been learned that Google has suppressed Breitbart’s search visibility by 99.7 percent since 2016, when it was a major source of accurate information about both Clinton and Trump. Note that this accurate reporting did not make Google happy.
So if you don’t want to live in a feudalistic society with wannabe queens and kings pushing you around what do you do?
Don’t be afraid, don’t be discouraged by what you hear in the media and vote Republican, in person, on Nov. 3. There are far more people who see the evil that has taken over the Democratic Party than one would think via the establishment mouthpieces.
The cure for Silicon Valley censorship is Samizdat. Samizdat is what dissidents in the Soviet Union and other nations under the communist boot did to spread the truth. Individuals reproduced censored and underground makeshift publications, often by hand, and passed the documents from reader to reader.
Spread these links yourselves via email, Facebook, Twitter and any other mainstream social media network to which you belong. Make screenshots of stories you think the censors might filter. It is harder to censor screenshots. Always be honest. Don’t be like MSNBC.
