OPINION — The vote counts are coming to an end and the Biden/Harris ticket remains at the top. Team Trump is screaming “fraud” while the Left is admonishing Trump voters (and voters who voted against the progressive politics of Biden and particularly Harris) that questioning the election results is akin to treason.
As for me, I’d be ready to concede except that many on the Left, including elected government officials, are making lists of Trump donors, publishing those names on websites, and promising retribution. Case in point is the “Trump Accountability Project.”
According to the WSJ this morning:
“Last Friday former Democratic National Committee Press Secretary Hari Sevugan tweeted that “employers considering [Trump White House staff] should know there are consequences for hiring anyone who helped Trump attack American values.” He shared a link to a new website called “The Trump Accountability Project”—apparently an initiative to make unemployable anyone associated with the Trump Administration or campaign,” the Editorial Board of the WSJ stated.
I have seen tweets from progressives expressing their intention is to publish the names of anyone who donated $1,000 or more to the Trump campaign.
Demonizing Americans for expressing their political beliefs is wholly un-American and dangerous.
What is more, Twitter and Facebook have continued to flag as “false,” shadow ban, and allow harassment of users who express doubts about the veracity of the election results. Not agreeing that Biden is “president-elect” has been transformed into expressing a desire to “divide the country” and instill doubt in our democratic processes. To some, it has been condemned as “anti-democracy.”
Yet, having a public discussion about the honesty of the election is the very act of participating in a democracy!
Tucker Carlson nailed it last night in his monologue. Everything he expressed is exactly how I feel, and probably 50-70 million other Americans feel the same way. The fix for all of this trouble, Carlson argued, is to have open discussion and transparency of facts and theories because right now, everyone is lying to us, he said.

Now the good stuff. The betting odds that Trump pulls out an upset with the Vegas bookies is hovering around 11 percent, so there’s a chance but not much of one. Since the consequences of losing are so dire (like in my opinion, it’s almost as bad as you will be forced to don your government-issued gray pajamas), here are the leading complaints against the election. For a Republican, there’s more benefits to taking all of this to court than a downside. They need to find out how the Democrats scored this win with a very boring candidate in numbers that rival FDR’s landslides. If they don’t, the Georgia senate races will elect two Democrat senators no matter how any Georgian votes and the country is doomed with no Republican senate stop-gap.
Here are the hurdles facing Trump - his vote deficits in these swing states:
The popular vote doesn’t matter, but the magnitude of Biden’s lead should not be overlooked. Biden leads Trump nationally by over 5.7 million votes, or 50.8 percent, and rising. Remember the polls that said Biden would beat FDR’s 1944 percentage of voters? Well, he has not yet. Biden’s 50.8 percent of the vote remains lower than FDR’s 1944 percentage of 53.39 percent. Yes, the pre-election polls still suck.
The best chance of casting a ton of votes in favor of Biden is through somehow hacking the voting machine software. That software is called Dominion, from what I’ve read. You will not find much about the Dominion algorithm theory on social media as talk of this is systematically silenced or demoted and certainly flagged as “misinformation.” It’s your lucky day, however. I am not Facebook, so I can present you with the theory:
Somehow an algorithm has a noticeable signature, or trend line, in the plots on the graph in many key battleground Republican-leaning counties. It reveals as Trump’s vote edged over 50 percent of the total votes, Biden’s votes surged. The graphs make it appear that Trump votes were traded for Biden votes as the count went up from there (a 50 percent lead). And, if you apply the same algorithm to counties not in battlegrounds, the signature is not replicated.
This was just math until this morning. That’s when Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said his team found Dominion whistleblowers while on Steve Bannon’s underground video interview show, War Room. You could not make up this cast of characters for a great Netflix series, but if you did, the plot line would rival the one in Narcos.
Here is the algorithm theory explained by a Ph.D named Dr. Ayyadurai Shiva, “The Inventor of Email,” he claims. This is an hour-long explanation, but the first 20 minutes will give you the general gist:
This comes days after Gen. Michael Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, made the accusation that CIA-developed software called Hammer (or HAMR) and Scorecard was used to alter the votes. My suspicion is a more modern version of that kind of software was used, designed by Big Tech engineers, if at all. But Shiva’s data suggests that the algorithm was pretty sloppy in that it generates replicable signatures. It is so transparent that some of my Aggie engineer buddies in non-battleground states have replicated the algorithm and applied it to their own county election results (no signature found). Therefore, if there’s any truth to this, maybe the Democrats used sloppy government code in Republican-leaning battleground counties where no one was expected to notice, to juice the vote count up for Biden/Harris.
Shiva’s reputation is also tarnished. Apparently, some claim, he was not really the inventor of email. But who the heck knows? The national press will not report this, claiming it’s “divisive” so we are left with this Netflix thriller starring Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani, Steve Bannon and Dr. Shiva, along with Michael Flynn’s attorney, to examine the theories.
Dominion said there is no evidence their voting machines were used to alter the results of elections in “Georgia or Michigan, including erroneous reporting of unofficial results from Antrim County, Michigan.” Furthermore, Dominion stated, “There are no issues with the use of Sharpie pens related to hand-marked paper ballots [as rumored in Arizona]. Any reporting to the contrary is completely false.” The Department of Homeland Security has a webpage to dispute many crazy conspiracy theories.
The Georgia Secretary of State has repeatedly stated there is no indication of widespread voter fraud. Yet the Georgia Secretary of State did announce the first ever state-wide audit, and then a few hours later announced it would be a hand recount. Maybe a random sampling in an audit to a hand recount informed him that Georgia election officials found a few needles in the haystack? Will there be enough needles for Trump? To add to the intrigue, former Trump press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted this afternoon that Biden won 95,801 ballots where only a vote for president was marked; Trump voters who only voted for Trump numbered just 818. The ballots that had a vote for president and at least one other candidate marked numbered 2,456,915 for Trump and 2,376.081 for Biden.
At the same time, Trump claims 2,000 sworn affidavits of people claiming voter fraud — dead people voting, stuffing main-in ballots into voting centers, and etc. They say 1,000 of those depositions have been collected. We shall see if this can account for enough votes to question the battlegrounds. The Vegas odds are at 11 percent.
The headline was created to avoid censorship on the socials. I pray for a Trump victory, no matter how small the odds. My reasons are stated above.
