    All the changes the House of Representatives/ Democratic lead regimes in different states did to the elections before the election, is what’s creating the unmistakable mistrust of the Democratic Party.
    And using those computer programs that came from Venezuela.

    The Republican Party needs to be re-built from the ground up with decent and law-abiding people like Brad Raffensberger.

    Imagine if the news only reported and showed evidence backed proven facts.
    There is an institution I could respect.

    I hope John McCain is looking down on you Lindsey Graham.
    He was your friend but now he would be ashamed of your utter hypocrisy 🙈💩

    It’s REALLY sad that a Honest republican has to be Attacked by the GOP (His own party) for speaking truth… This is why the GOP is NOT to be trusted… They don’t help the people, they sit in the senate collect a large paycheck paid for with taxpayer money.. When we need money to survive this virus, we get nothing… Yeah, what’s wrong with this picture…..

    It’s clear Trump wants a coup and the cowards of the GOP are enabling him. Lincoln’s party is spitting on the Constitution …

    thanks to Brad Raffensberger for telling the actual truth….i can’t believe how many lies are being told from the multitude of republicans…it’s sickening….at what point are they traitors to the country?

    An HONEST republican senator is synonyms with an Albino… The are very RARE and very hard to find… Kudos to this HONEST republican.. He actually has a spine.. However, he is STILL a Republican…

    Most of the Republicans( who see what, a fortune with Donald Trump with -215 Indictment just in his Adminstration). They are acting like fools, he’s absolutely right, people really should research what state process is. Along with real ID and Signature at the time of registration and they have their signature on voting ballots envelopes.

    As long as we have electronic voting machines we will never get rid of massive voter fraud. The voting system is broken. Those counting the votes can not be trusted. Those running the voting machines can not be trusted. Busing folks in and having them vote numerous times, shipping in truck loads of votes, letting illegal immigrants vote, letting dead folks vote the list goes on and on. NO ONE CAN CONSENT TO THE OUTCOME OF A RIGGED VOTING SYSTEM. If a vote can not be verified it is a void vote. The folks investigating voter fraud can not be trusted any more than any of the rest of them. This criminal organization claiming to be our government has had this system in place and rigged for decades. When will folks wake up and realize there is nothing but a bunch or rich criminals at the top. They are agents of the international and world banks. In the end banks, corporations, and institutions run this country and our sold out officials in the end do as they are told decade after decade by their masters and that ain’t “We The People”.

    Fraction Magic – Detail Version – VOTER FRAUD!

    Georgia would not be left out they are one of the states using the GEMS voting machine and yes Georgia’s officials are selected not elected. The Electoral College are the one’s who decide to use these machines instead of paper ballots. I have to wonder how many of them were paid off to make that choice. Also how many of them unlawfully hold some other government office? And on top of that Georgia has always had and been historically one of the most if not the most corrupt and crooked States and politicians/criminals in history. Your record and crimes speak for themselves.

    America’s Most Corrupt States
    1. Georgia
    > Overall grade: F (49%)
    > Public access to information: F
    > Legislative accountability: F
    > Political financing: F
    > Ethics enforcement agencies: F

    The link that showed this report from fox, no longer exists but you may be able to find it somewhere.

    Voting machines may change, officials may change, even those who buy them off may change but the corruption? It never changes. Their corruption is live and well in 2020. It always will as long as no one goes to jail for their crimes.

      Trump and his cultists are communists. They use the same methods that Castro and Maduro used early on, in order to take power. Now they are trying to steal an election that they could not win fairly at the ballot box. Trump takes orders from Putin and Xi. He sells out our country to the highest bidder. His cultists hate America and spit on the constitution.

      Nice try, Ivan. Our military personnel mainly voted for Biden.

    • h5y Reply

      @Mike M No they didn’t. Trump gave them endless cash to buy weapons and everything. They adored him. Please don’t disrespect the true patriots fighting in the streets on the front line. Without us yall would be living in a fascist state. We’re targeting shaky dems next, if you’re not aligned with our values your against us. A-3762 out.

    • Mike M Reply

      @h5y Yes they did, Ivan. A majority of military personnel voted for Biden. As did quite a few Republican and independent conservative voters. That is the main reason Trump lost the presidency. It is the best result for a challenger since 1932.
      On the other hand, down-ballot the Republicans did quite well.

    Trump could say that he is not leaving, he is not conceding.However, according the Twentieth Amendement to the Constitution, the candidate with the most electoral votes
    ( Biden, 306-Trump, 232) becomes president at 12:00 p.m. on january 20. The current president’s term is therefore over on that day, just before noon.
    And all of the allegiance of the government, of the military, of the civil service, switches to Joe Biden, the winner of the November 3 election, and Donald Trump will become a private citizen, regardless of anything Donald Trump does.

    We have sworn statements, in the status of “exposing corruption” (i.e. getting immunity) of how the forgery worked. We are certified in evidence in everything we say here.

    In the state of Texas it was proposed to use Dominion machines and smart-matic software, but they refused, because it is known that it is a system that can be deceived and manipulated. Trump of course won in Texas.

    Senior officials in the countries received bribes amounting to millions of dollars to their families, so that they could choose Smart-Matic. The software has also been adapted for other counting machines, in other countries.

    Through Smart-Matic you can control, via the Internet, the counting devices, including from abroad, from Germany and Venezuela. You can remotely control the results of the counting in the machine, see, and change results in real time, move voices from side to side in real time, we have the exact algorithm they used In it, make sure Biden wins. They can do from a distance, even from abroad, whatever they want: that the machine will not read stamps, read only Biden’s votes,

    And more. Everything
